Without accompanying ground troops, the only bombs that ever persuaded an enemy to concede defeat were dropped on Hiroshima and Nagasaki. Those type of bombs will not fall on Syria or Iraq and Vladimir Putin should explain that to Barack Obama.
Julie Bishop’s Chief of Staff, Murray Hansen, attended a secret meeting of conspirators intent on unseating Tony Abbott. Bishop says she was not aware of the outcome of the meeting and that she only knew of the numbers on the Monday morning, numbers that were now stacked against her boss. Bishop told a fib.
It’s Monday morning and university academics have stirred from their weekend bongs to answer the call from media for sage commentary. So again we choke on our Weet Bix as we listen to the same regurgitated, Left-wing advice that we must, “engage with the Islamic community to ensure a forward defence against radical Islam”.
A suicide bomber tried to enter the football stadium but was stopped at the entrance probably due to the French President’s attendance at the friendly between two Christian countries. It was the first time a Western leader had felt the cold shiver of a brush with death.
While Prime Minister Turnbull and Angela Merkel embrace in the warm glow of multiculturalism, their foolishness is becoming apparent to the people to whom they have a duty of care.
Senator BERNARDI (South Australia) (12:45): I rise today to raise a matter involving a man claiming to be an international business leader but who has demonstrated through his words and actions that he is a person who clearly has limited—if any—association with the truth.
Vice President Joe Biden’s decision not to run has left the Democrats in a precarious position. They now have one lone candidate in Hillary Clinton who is under FBI investigation (you can forget Bernie Sanders, the Commo bloke) and with an endless dribble of emails to surface from her home server between now and the election, she seems a dodgy conveyance ... and the Democrats will be left with no emergency reserve.
In September of 2012, it was reported in the pickeringpost.com that a certain South Australian Labor politician (and former Police Minister) named Bernard Finnigan was about to be charged with no fewer than 14 offences relating to accessing child pornography between August 2010 and April 2011.
Global warming nonsense has reached an unhinged fever pitch ahead of the scaremongering surrounding the UN's IPCC Paris Conference. The professional warmists have ignored the Pacific's El Nino (boy child) warming effect, which is soon to be followed by the opposing La Nina (girl child) cooling effect.
NSW Premier Mike Baird has decided to spend over $40 million trying to find, in a sea of one million schoolchildren, those who have been “radicalised” by “radical” Muslims. He then intends to “un-radicalise” them into responsible Muslim students. WTF?
The Keystone XL pipeline project has been cancelled by Barack Obama (he was always going to can it). It runs from Canada 3,500 kilometres south through major oil refining US States to Texas and had been partially completed up to stage four.
Malcolm Turnbull’s grinning honeymoon is about up as he struggles to be all things to all people by insisting this year’s budget must be “fair”. Turnbull is slavishly mouthing Shorten’s description of Abbott’s budgets.
Yesterday was a day that defined us as Australians. Where a slip of a girl stood astride the world stage and told those who think only a man can have an affiliation with a horse to, “get stuffed”.
I battled with another bidder at Inglis sales to secure an ordinary looking yearling for a measly $7,000. "Why would you want that horse?", the other bidder asked. "To win the Melbourne Cup with", I replied.
