Four-time Walkley Award winning political commentator and Churchill Fellow, has returned to the fray over concern that the integrity of news dissemination is continually being threatened by a partisan media.

WTF IS A “DIVERSITY VISA LOTTERY”?

Well, a few people in the US Dems, like Chuck Schumer, Ted Kennedy and of course that little GOP pretender, who is still dining out on his POW tall tales, got together and decided that 50,000 unknowns from unknown places could win a free entry ticket to the US every year with a green card and all social benefits. They won’t have to speak English and they won’t need a trade.



AT LEAST I CAN TELL MY GRANDKIDS I WAS THE PREMIER ONCE

North of the Sunny Coast they think Pauline Hanson will be PM. Further north of there they are convinced she will be a ten-term President. But of course she cannot even be PM for a single day. The problem in North Queensland is that they suffer from heat stroke, too many stubbies, and they don’t understand the new voting system. What they are really saying is that they hate the two majors.



IT’S TIME FOR TURNBULL TO TURN IT IN

This bloke is a joke, he has always been a joke and after yet another major stuff-up and 20 odd consecutively worsening polls he really needs to do the right thing by the Parliament and just piss off and take the treacherous Stick Insect with him. And I believe there is a good chance he will do just that as there is no respectable space left for him in the Parliament now.


OH, THE INDIGNANT CRAP OF CRUSTY OL' COMMO CAMERON!

The entire media, including Fox News (whose newsreaders have suddenly become opinionated commentators) is in a frenzy as kilted Senator Cameron, in Senate Estimates, tries to establish criminality over Minister Cash's knowledge of the media's presence at the raid on AWU offices in Melbourne and Sydney yesterday. Bullshit! It would be unusual for the media NOT to be there.



ROSEMARY CLOONEY’S LITTLE NEPHEW, GEORGE, IS FULL OF SHIT

Rosemary Clooney was a wonderful songstress and actress of the 50s and 60s and she would be turning in her grave at the crap that Matt Damon and little George are spewing in order to justify their highly profitable association with Harvey Weinstein.



ASSISTED DEATH?... ASSISTED LIFE IS BETTER!

I always thought I would make it until the look on the doctors’ faces changed to one of concerned urgency. Only then did I know I had a fight on my hands, but I had never lost a fight, and I wasn’t about to lose this one. All I wanted to do was get out of there but they told me the tennis ball-size hole in my lung was cancerous and at best I had maybe six months to live, and even with chemotherapy I was only a 10 per cent chance of making it. That was when the game changed for me.


...WHEN THEY CALLED OUT CHANGE LEADERS, AND YOU WALTZED AWAY FROM ME

So the Libs are frightened to change leaders for fear they will be labelled as another Rudd, Gillard, Rudd fiasco. Yet the truth is that voters will have no trouble selecting who they believe is better. NZ PM Ardern was an unknown a few weeks back but was able to present a palatable face to the electorate.


NZ FLOATS LEFT, AND CLOSER TO CANBERRA


“ALL TOO HARD”, SAYS ASIO CHIEF

ASIO reckons they can’t keep up with the work load as China now knows more about our secrets than ASIO does. Well, fewer golf games might help the spooks get on top of it. ASIO has been a Canberran joke for 50 years and Red Hill’s embassies have been openly co-opting Parliamentarians like Dastyari and Bob Hawke for not much money. Neither of whom has been held to account.


TURNBULL’S CABINET ONLY SUCKS THE BULLET

…but will the Party Room bite it?

So the destructive RET will hang on for another two years doubling our power bills…why? Is it our punishment for forcing the PM to act responsibly? Is it a sop to the Labor Party members of the Liberal Party. This Turnbull bloke and his far Left rabble really need to go now.


Why bother with euthanasia? Just fly Air Asia!



NEARER MY GOD TO ME

It's a little painful to listen to increasingly highly moral commentators lambaste Weinstein for his disgusting predations on women and girls. Now, I know I’m sticking my neck out here, but I reckon many (but not all) of Hollywood starlet hopefuls are quite prepared to be groped in exchange for money and fame. They understand that that has always been part of Hollywood’s game.


HIGH COURT COURTS CHAOS

If Malcolm Roberts is allowed to return to his Senate seat then so too should the other six, but it’s not likely the High Court will bring down a blanket judgment. Chief Justice Susan Kiefel, who was recently appointed by George Brandis, could make various rulings during next week’s sitting, and that should make for some fun and games.
