WHO'S BATSHIT CRAZY BARNABY?

“Ban all Muslims”, suggests Pauline Hanson and Barnaby Joyce comes out swinging with an eye only on maintaining live-cattle exports to Muslim countries. Joyce sees no harm in past and future Muslim atrocities when it comes to his socialist Nationals’ portfolio of Agriculture and Water. His only claim to fame is that he prevented the duplicitous cat who gave us Gillard returning to the seat of New England. That cat being Tony Windsor.


THE BREATHLESS AND BREASTLESS FEMINISTS ANSWER THE CALL TO COMMUNISM

The Left’s first response to a terrorist incident is, “It's more likely a domestic disturbance, or an out of control vehicular incident”. Once established that the perpetrator was screaming ‘Allahu akbar’ it’s, “Other good Muslims must not be blamed”. When these ‘other good Muslims’ refuse to condemn the perpetrators, it’s a case of, “More people die in swimming pools than from terrorism”.Then it's, “It must be a lone wolf thing”. Or, “Some poor little Muslim kid has been radicalised”. Finally, when all excuses for Islamic terrorism are exhausted it’s time to call concerned Conservatives, “Islamophobes, racists and bigots”.


SLATER & GORDON GOING DOWN WITH GILLARD?

Labor’s vilification of RC Commissioner Dyson Heydon, when hearing evidence from Shorten and ex PM Gillard, turned out to be yet another of Shorten’s misguided missiles because Heydon let the criminality of both slide through to the keeper. Now those flawed decisions may come back to haunt him via an unpretentious bloke called Ralph Blewitt.


FRIENDS AND FRAUDS AT BILL'S BASH

[Excuse me being AWOL this week as I wanted to take time out in Sydney to remember Bill.] An estimated four hundred people flocked to the upmarket Pier One Hotel in Sydney’s Rocks on Thursday evening. Tony Abbott was there tucking into a few ales with Peta Credlin, many of the opinionated SKY News team were there and even the ABC and Fairfax were represented, but free alcohol and tucker can be an irresistible attraction for some.


FLICK THE INSURANCE COMPANIES

... they are the problem, not the solution

The profusion of insurance ads flooding the airwaves illustrates the amount of money to be made by doing nothing other than collecting premiums and arguing over payouts. Ads for pets, life insurance, funerals, car and household insurance, in fact you can insure just about everything in order to have that warm glow of peaceful serenity to stave off a possible ruinous payout for an unforeseen accident... providing you have previously navigated the fine print.



THE IRREPLACEABLE BILL...

He was a stickler for accuracy and his daily cartoon space will not be effectively filled by any contemporary cartoonist. The rebellious newspaper cartoonists have all gone with the greats of the past who adorned the pages of Smith’s Weekly and the old Bulletin. Current newspaper cartoonists are frightened of upsetting the few, but strive to placate the many in an environment of PC mania and Left lunacy. That's not real cartooning!


LONG FACES OVER GST... SO LET THE BLOODY STATES COLLECT AND SPEND THEIR OWN!

The unravelling of John Howard’s GST idea was predicable simply because VAT/GST is an easy mark for raising taxes further. The trouble is that centrist Federal governments like to hold the guiding reins on State expenditures and when a rise in the GST becomes economically necessary, as it has in every other nation, it never happens here.



ELECTIONS TO BE WON AND LOST OVER ISLAM

... but politicians still don’t get it!

Multiculturalism could have worked well in Australia if Islam had been taken seriously and banned as an irreconcilable cult that has no more of a place here in Australia than does the KKK. The undercurrent of discontent now that Islam has demonstrated its hideous side is palpable and if leaders want election or re-election they would do well to ape a little of Pauline Hanson’s and Donald Trump's immigration policy.


PAULINE HIGHLIGHTS MALCOLM'S LEFT LEAN

...with, "Vaccinations should be parents' choice"

Most complaints I receive that ask for airing, concern effects on kids after vaccinations and now there is a sharp fall in the number of parents prepared to have their kids jabbed, Pauline Hanson has quite reasonably suggested parents should do their own research before deciding on vaccinations.



ONLY EL-MOUELHY COULD HAVE CAPITULATED!


LIAR LIAR, PRAYER MAT ON FIRE

Halal certifier, Mohamed El-Mouelhy, capitulated yesterday in the face of damning evidence that he has contributed to Islamic “charities” that funnel the money to terrorist groups. El-Mouelhy probably won’t know what capitulation means, so I will spell it out for him... “give in”, “fold”, “go to water”, “concede”, “surrender” and a word he should know intimately... “submit”.
