SAUDI FINGERPRINTS ALL OVER BRUSSELS

The “Great Mosque of Brussels” near to the blasts that rocked Brussels and the EU Parliament was owned outright by the Saudis but gifted to Belgium, and designed to be an Islamic stronghold in Europe, in return for cheap oil... with a few very nasty strings attached.


SORRY FOR BRUSSELS?

...not as sorry as we are mate

Belgium boasts the most concentrated number of Muslims in Europe. It also has the greatest number of Muslims who have travelled to Syria and returned. Yet the ruling class, safely ensconced in its red leather chairs with its rosewood desks and green lamp shades, still believes we must keep Muslims onside. It believes they are part of the solution and “good” Muslims will rat on the “bad” ones. Really?


WHY "READINGS"?


Hmmmm, AM I RISKING A CONSTITUTIONAL CRISIS?

Last Saturday night Senator Brandis was attending a local council election meeting in Brisbane, he was telling everyone who would listen that a Double Dissolution date would be announced on Monday.


SAFE SCHOOLS AND MARRIAGE EQUALITY

...they sound harmless enough, but then again so does climate change

“Safe Schools” has nothing to do with safety. It has everything to do with sexually educating your children in the way the Left wants them educated while parents remain unaware.


A FAILING FAIRFAX STOPS WORK 'TIL MONDAY

... hmmm, that should help

When I began work for the Sydney Morning Herald I was asked not to bother writing but submit multiple pencil roughs of cartoon ideas and the editorial management would select one. This of course led to my work being the subject of censorship by omission. I was not to be trusted to produce balanced material. I would have balanced my work to appeal to the readership anyway, as I have always done, because it’s the readership who pays the wages.


STAND ASIDE BABY BOOMERS

... the Millennials are here

Millennials are about to outnumber the Baby Boomers. They are people who were born in the 80s and reached their teens after the turn of the century. The US boasts 80 million of them (one third of the workforce) with Australia sustaining around six million of them. Millennials have not known a world war, a depression or a recession and couldn’t have given a stuff about a GST.



"THE MOST EXCITING TIME IN OUR HISTORY"?

Turnbull is like the dog that caught the bus and now he hasn’t a clue what to do with it. Since he rolled Abbott, it’s been all downhill for the Libs. And now he is faced with what should be a horror budget just prior to a general election... HTF did THAT happen?


SAY CHEERIO RUBIO

Senator Marco Rubio will lose his home State of Florida tonight and his run at the GOP nomination will be over. Trump didn’t even bother campaigning there this week, presciently preferring the more competitive Ohio.


THE SCIENCE IS IN!.. global warming and Obama are both frauds


BLOKES HAVE A TOUGH TIME OF IT

Just channel surfing the other night and there was this party on a beach somewhere (the channel could have been Bondi Rescue, many readers would also have seen it). There were a bunch of young girls determined to remove this young bloke’s board shorts, he was strenuously resisting, hanging on to his waist band with white knuckles.



WINDSOR WANTS NEW ENGLAND BACK?...Whiskey Tango Foxtrot!!!!!


IT’S TRUMP’s CASABLANCA

...and he is not choking

Last year I quoted Ted Cruz as a short priced favourite to win the US Presidential nomination and suggested you could “write your own ticket” about Trump. The Republican machinery would never allow a cowboy like Trump to disrupt what has become a comfortably corrupt organisation, or so I thought. But Trump is overwhelming the lobbyists and protected interests like no-one thought possible and now he cannot be ignored.


YOU AIN'T NO ABBOTT MALCOLM



PELL TREADS A FINE LINE

... but now it's time to let him go

Cardinal Pell is not a child molester. He is simply a sad character who has lacked female affection and his sex life has been confined to masturbation. His sin is that he knew of paedophilia within his church and sought to protect the church rather than the children.
