WHY DOES THIS SHOCK OUR GOVT?

A 15-year-old! How could that happen? We must quickly lower the age a child can be detained to 14. Oh bugger! Did you say there’s a 12-year-old now? Better make that 11, maybe 10. We are watching media, a Government and its security agencies in total disarray and they are lying to us in an attempt to, of all things, placate and render comfort to the guilty.


COMING TO A MOSQUE NEAR YOU


SAY GOODNIGHT BILL

Watching the Royal Commission into Unions over the last few days and watching Bill Shorten’s obvious discomfiture when attempting to respond to the damning evidence, evokes flashbacks to Gillard and Wilson. The scam was exactly the same. The only difference was that Gillard arranged for the defrauded funds to be laundered through property renovations.



DOCTORS AND NURSES PLAY A DEADLY GAME OF POLITICS

You can understand Greens and doctors wanting to kidnap kids from hospitals, they’ve lived their lives in universities and Labor law firms, but not nurses. A little bit of forethought wouldn’t go astray here and Greens and doctors have never been very good at that, so let’s get one thing straight:


DELIVER US FROM ISLAM

...or deliver us our bloody guns back

If you could take the Islam out of the Muslim you’d probably have a nice bloke, but what chance is there of that? Once a Muslim toddler is taught that non-Muslims must perish at the hands of righteous jihadists, then you will never change him.


IN ISLAM THE FECAL MATTER RISES TO THE TOP

Who is Islam’s official arbiter, curator and promoter of the horrific Shariah law? Why it’s none other than Mr Turnbull’s new best friend, his eminence the non-English speaking grand mufti of Australia Dr (everyone’s a doctor or a sheik) Ibrahim Abu Mohamed.


UNCLE JOE BIDEN TO FILL THE HILLARY HOLE


BISHOP LETS GILLARD’S U.N. CAT OUT OF THE BAG

The Foreign Ministry is the plum job every Minister wants. The person elected Deputy Leader has the choice of portfolio and Shorten’s shadow deputy, Plibersek, made the same choice. It’s the greatest rort going with first class travel for you and your spouse, the best in hotels and sumptuous tucker. There is no need for you to get involved in boring parochial politics, it’s impossible to make a mistake, you can make lots of friends with a limitless budget and of course DFAT is accountable to no-one.


WELCOME TO TERROR AUSTRALIS

... and policy lunacy

Australia’s multiple disconnected Security Agencies are noticeably hard at work investigating yet another “politically motivated incident”, soon after it happened... and still they don’t get it!



BUGGER! WHY DIDN’T SOMEONE DE-RADICALISE ME?

A 15 year old Muslim kid commits an act of terrorism and murders a police employee. PM Turnbull said, “We must never blame Muslims for a tiny minority”. That’s polispeak for, “Please allow me to appease you further.”


OBAMA WANTS A BLACK MARKET IN GUNS

“Road accidents kill more Americans than terrorists”, said Obama, again determined to play down Islamic terrorism in the wake of yet another school massacre. Gun crimes kill more Americans than um... well, if you include 9/11 and Obama’s "workplace incidents” it’s less than 4,000 Americans who have died on home soil at the hands of terrorists compared to almost 10,000 violent gun deaths so far this year. That’s sort of correct Mr President, but 7,500 of those 10,000 were suicides.


PUTIN OPENS HIS PLAY LUNCH IN OBAMA'S SPACE

Surprise, surprise... Putin is usurping what should be the role of the black bloke who created this mess. No surprise to Pickering Post readers, because they got it first here weeks ago: http://pickeringpost.com/story/putin-steps-into-the-breach/5335 It seems, as Putin suggests, Obama still doesn’t realise what he has done.


PETER GRESTE SCAMMED BY THE RICHEST ROYALS ON EARTH

... but were he and his hippy parents aware that they supported terrorism?

The foyer of Al Jazeera’s headquarters in Doha, Qatar, is adorned with graphics assigning terrorism a leading role: There is bin Laden seated on a mat, his submachine gun on his lap; further along there is bin Laden again, on horseback this time, in Afghanistan... the brave regal knight of the Arab world. A huge, glamorous poster of bin Laden's silhouette hangs in the background of the main studio.


OH DEAR, HOW DID THIS HAPPEN?

...and right under our noses

We all know that we vote for a Party’s candidate, the successful Party then elects a leader who becomes the Prime Minister. We don’t elect the PM; that’s the Westminster system. So where has it all gone so terribly wrong?


A UN SEAT FOR BISHOP’S NEW BEAU

In 2012 Julie Bishop said of Bob Carr and his wife’s travel arrangements, "It is not common practice for a Foreign Minister or a Secretary of State to travel with a spouse for the business part of a visit, I guess what's quite concerning is it is against the (Labor) Government's own ministerial guidelines.


“I WOULD NOT ADVOCATE THAT WE PUT A MUSLIM IN CHARGE OF THIS NATION”

...just who is Ben Carson talking about?

And he is not backing down. Of course his jelly-backed GOP co-candidates immediately joined the Left media in roundly condemning his stance as unconstitutional. But Carson is just one of the frontrunners in the Republican race who has never been a politician and his candidacy is candidly refreshing.


WATER ON MARS...WOW!

Do you notice anything curious about the following news item: “EVIDENCE OF LIQUID WATER FOUND ON MARS... NASA's Curiosity Rover has found that water can exist as a liquid near the Martian surface.
