WHEN THE CAT’S ASLEEP

...a mouse can be truthful

The liberals’ Josh Frydenberg, in an emotional fit of honesty, declared that Grand Mufti, Ibrahim abu Mohammed, had let his Muslim followers down by suggesting, among some other nasty things, that the Paris massacre was at least partly due to Islamophobia.


MILLIONAIRE SOCIALISTS NEED ISLAMIC IMMIGRANTS

... because Islamic immigrants will always vote socialist

In excess of 80 per cent of Muslim immigrants rely on welfare and that is not exclusive to Australia, it is a world-wide anomaly that is crippling every budget from Canberra to Westminster and from the White House to the Fifth Republique.



THERE ARE TIMES WHEN FRAU MERKEL SHOULDN'T DRINK

A German proverb says: “The wise man voluntarily does in good times that which the stupid man involuntarily has to do in bad times”, and Angela Merkel has avoided doing anything in good times that might puncture her popularity.


ALA SENATE CANDIDATE STRUTS HIS STUFF

Outspoken ex-military Senate candidate, Bernard Gaynor, faced a large crowd on Queensland’s Gold Coast this week to launch his campaign for the newly-formed Australian Liberty Alliance party which is looming as a force in the upcoming Federal election.


THANKSGIVING FOR TWO

Turkey warned Putin to stop bombing ISIS at about the same time as Obama was claiming “successful containment”. In a thinly veiled attempt to avoid killing any person of extreme Islamic persuasion, Obama has suddenly been exposed as a liar as he openly defends Turkey’s “right” to defend itself against... well, against um, actually there was no-one attacking Turkey, and Turkey’s Erdogan has suddenly been exposed as just another dumb extreme Muslim in a suicide vest.


TURKEY BANKS ON NATO

... but it won't work

Footage has emerged of Syrian rebels yelling Allahu Akbah while shooting at pilots parachuting from a crippled Russian warplane over Syria. The Russian plane appeared to be attacking the rebels north of Homs and some distance from al-Raqqa, the home of ISIS. At least one of the pilots was killed while parachuting. And Obama and Turnbull are suggesting a power sharing arrangement in Damascus with these people!


THIS DYING LITTLE GIRL DID "LET IT GO"



SHOVE THIS HOT END UP YOUR CLACKER BILL!

Bill Shorten is still kicking old blokes when they’re down... some innocent poor bastards who like an occasional smoke, like myself, need to pay $55 for 50g of tobacco worth around 30 cents. (My damned tobacco plants got eaten by insects.)


THERE'S NO ROOM FOR MARISE IN DEFENCE CHIEFS' BED

New Minister for Defence, Marise Payne, was originally the recipient of a Senate casual vacancy and was Minister for Human Services in the Abbott Government from 18 September 2013. She even had a stint at Shadow Parliamentary Secretary for Foreign Affairs from 6.12.07 to 22.9.08. But the Defence portfolio? What was Turnbull thinking?


CHOOSE YOUR POISON

... terrorism or paedophilia

Justice Minister Michael Keenan, in a fit of blissful ignorance this morning, said he took no notice of minority groups who demonstrated against Islamic immigration. They are fringe groups and are not representative of mainstream public opinion. Hmmm, it appears Mr Keenan is in for a surprise come next election.



DON’T WORRY ABOUT VETTING THE PARENTS, VET THE KIDS

... but not until they turn 15!

Of course, by then it will be too late, they will already be legitimate citizens, they cannot be deported and their siblings’ teddy bears will all have their heads missing too!


Why bombing alone can’t work



TURNBULL LIMPS LEFT ON TERROR

In an expected development Malcolm Turnbull has joined with Obama to claim the ISIS crisis does not warrant ground troops, it can only be solved politically and that, despite recent incidents, it’s “xenophobic” and disgustingly Abbott-like to prefer Christian to Muslim refugees. Thank Christ Putin is ignoring them both.


NEW ISLAM PARTY COULD BE A RIPPER!

While Ed Husic looks somewhat confused, Bill Shorten says this new Islamic Party will drive a wedge between Muslim and Australian communities and that there is no room for “religious” denominations in the Parliament.


"BETTER OUT THAN IN MALCOLM"

Every new national leader needs to be photographed with the Commander in Chief of the Free World, but I detected a certain lack of confidence in our Malcolm Turnbull this morning as he nervously stumbled over the meaningless, obligatory platitudes we are all used to.
