A LOT OF BLOKES WOULDN'T GET A GAME IN THIS COMP

I don’t know why really, but despite my negative thoughts on girls playing AFL, I have become an instant tragic. That’s not to say I would encourage my daughter to get belted from pillar to post every week because, Christ, they do hammer each other with gritted toothed venom and some of them are six foot, 18 stone Amazons happily pulverising five foot plaited maidens.


THE LEFTOVER LEFTIES LEAVE TRUMP STUMPED

Almost twenty thousand public servants resident in Washington DC should resign when a new Administration takes Office. Not all do, (in Australia not one does) despite a deep love affair with an outgoing failed Obama Administration comprised of black activists and Muslims. It’s an affliction called the Stockholm Syndrome and it’s real... just ask Patty Hearst’s parents.


THE HIDDEN COST OF CHILDCARE

... to you!

High tea in flash sidewalk restaurants is a bit beyond my pay scale but not beyond the blue-rinse set mothers who have their children in child-care at up to $130 a day. Exchanging dirty nappies and teeth-cutting for a daily round of catty bullshit with other mothers is an attractive alternative to responsible motherhood... but YOU are paying for it.


THE FEMININE FINGERED FOOL IS STILL HERE

...and ruing the plight of Aborigines while supporting Islam

Aboriginal Affairs is the portfolio of death. A PM gives someone the Aboriginal Ministry he wants to be rid of. No-one wins in Aboriginal Affairs except the white people who claim to be Aboriginal (legally you only need to declare that you identify with the Aboriginal race and voila! You are an Aborigine qualifying for the largesse... and it's racist to question it!)



FAIRFAX SAYS THIS IS A MUSLIM RAPING HIS MOTHER-IN-LAW

... Hmmmm, is it really?

Okay, so I'm a rude bastard but, contrary to Fairfax, this is not a cartoon of "a Muslim raping his mother-in-law". It's a cartoon intended to highlight the anonymous nature of the burkah. You be the judge about the bleeding hearts who want to twist it into something else.


SAY GOODNIGHT FAIRFAX

... your type of journalism is finished

It was a good night for the deplorables and the Fairfax mob were there with hot mikes to pick up anything a bit off... and unfortunately I’m pretty good at stuff that’s a bit off. It’s true, I did say that to a private function and SKY's Ross Cameron said a few things that would naturally upset Fairfax too because it was mostly about Fairfax and its appalling attempts at journalism.


MUSLIM POSTIE THE WORLD’S HIGHEST PAID “PUBLIC SERVANT”

Yesterday PM Malcom Turnbull suggested Australia Post boss Mr Ahmed Fahour’s salary was too high at $5.6 million but his criticism was muffled as Turnbull’s take-home pay is greater than a US President’s.



DECLARING WAR ON ISLAM

Following 9/11, President Bush junior turned to Vice President Dick Cheney and said, “We are at war and somebody is going to pay”. Was that a declaration of war? No, it was incandescent rage and a promise of retaliation that took ten years to accomplish. So is Trump serious about the Islamic threat? The Left is certainly not.



YOU HAVE ALWAYS BEEN A DICKHEAD, MALCOLM

... maybe you should just retire and enjoy your harbourside mansion

There has been little joy in the Liberal Party lately and Turnbull has just given Shorten a free kick with another case of massive misjudgment equal only to Gillard’s and Rudd’s.


TIME IS RUNNING OUT FOR BOTH

Australia has two men, whose only ambition is to be PM and nothing else, and they are starting to leave a sick taste in our mouths. Wherever Shorten moves, Turnbull shuffles into roughly the same safe, uncritical position, leaving an even greater chasm on the Right. And the Right now owns the future.


A TRUMP TRIDENT WILL TROUNCE THE LEFT

... and its submissive judiciary

The UN’s global warming hoax, Islam and a bloke called Putin are the three main targets of Poseidon’s trident, and Trump is sending the Left crazy with having to accept that he will do what other politicians won’t... fulfil electoral promises, and put the world back on an even axis without a cataclysmic Left skew.


AN EVENING WITH SOME PEOPLE WHO CARE

...

Come join me and some other more respectable people in raising money to defend Kirralie Smith from that unAustralian halal certifier, Mohamed El-Mouelhy. El-Mouelhy has been found to have transferred money from certifying our products to terrorist organisations.


AUSTRALIA DAY OR DIVISIVE DAY?

... it’s time to flick it anyway

As with most Government orchestrated awards it’s the Awards councillors themselves who seek the notoriety necessary to continue the funding. “Controversial” is the paramount asset for budding Australians of the Year. It gives the media something to talk about and in a year’s time the substance has waned and only the Awards themselves are remembered.


PRACTISING MUSLIM, USMAN KHAWAJA, FLICKS CRICKET’S $100 MIL BEER LOGOs

With the encouragement of Cricket Australia and ex-NSW Premier Mike Baird, Test cricketer Usman Khawaja discarded the VB and Four X logos on his gear. Khawaja is the first declared Muslim to wear the baggy green and part of his kit is a well-worn prayer mat that is used five times a day in front of perplexed team mates. But there are inconsistencies in Khawaja’s stance.


A SWARM OF SHITTY SHEILAS SHOW THEIR SHAMELESS SIDE

Media of course overestimated numbers but there were quite a few hairy arm pits and braless sheilas who accounted for around half the crowd. The other half were possibly men... it was hard to tell. And the cute kids appeared immune to the filthy chants and placards. We suddenly realise just how good Hollywood makeup artists are when people like Madonna take the mike.
