AN ANGRY TURNBULL TEARS CASSIDY A NEW ONE

When Malcolm Turnbull attacks his beloved ABC you can be certain it is in deep trouble. “What’s the difference in Zaky Mallah going into a shopping centre and going into an ABC studio?”, Barrie Cassidy stupidly asked Turnbull on his “Insiders” program. With that one inane question Cassidy exposed all that is incurably decadent with the ABC.


KHALED SHARROUF MAY NOT BE DEAD

...but his kids’ lives are over

The nice and normal Aussie Granny, Karen Nettleton, who pines for her grandchildren will be disappointed because she will never see them or her daughter again unless she too travels to Syria.

THREE “UNRELATED” TERRORIST ACTS

... while Obama goes gospel

Unrelated eh? Well, that’s the message being reported on every news channel, but that message is wrong! All three acts of terrorism heralded the start of Ramadan, all three were motivated by Islam and all three occurred after Friday prayers.


THIS IGNORANT TOAD IS ON ANOTHER PLANET WITH OUR MONEY

... $800k pa of it!

The ABC’s Mark Scott’s pathetic attempt to defend the indefensible typifies all that’s shamefully traitorous with our national broadcaster... and this ex Fairfax, supercilious dog is the owner of the first head that should roll.


HOLY SHIT! IL PAPA GETS SCARED OF CLIMATE CHANGE

Head for the bullshit shelters as an avalanche of global warming crap rains down from the UN. Even the Pope, beguiled by the outgoing Ban Ki-moon and his IPCC bullshit, has been preaching a new Armageddon.



WHO CAN YOU TRUST WITH AN OUT OF CONTROL ABC?

As number one ticket holder for the “Friends of the ABC” club, Malcolm Turnbull has steadfastly defended the public broadcaster at every turn despite its determination to trash its charter. In doing so, Turnbull gave it the imprimatur to continue with the appallingly biased programming that appeals to the far Left while enraging the mainstream majority.


KEEP SAYING THE EARTH IS FLAT...sooner or later the odd bogan will believe you!


MEET WACKY ZACKY... BENDIGO MOSQUE'S LITTLE BOMBER

....proof you can’t trust the judiciary (nor Q&A) with terrorists

Zacky Mallah, who has been radicalised right here where he was born, may still spend up to 20 years in jail being de-radicalised by a few tattooed Aussie inmates.


THINGS THAT SLIP OUT IN THE HEAT OF THE MOMENT

NOTE: There is serious doubt about the accuracy of this article. Michael Coutts-Trotter husband of Tanya Plibersek, appears not to be the Michael Coutts referred to. I regret and apologise for the inference.

I was dozing watching the TURC on Friday when out of the blue, the name Michael Coutts was uttered. I sat upright, “Surely that can’t be ... ”.


ABBOTT MUST STAND FIRM AGAINST LEFT DRIVEL

Liberal Party wets led by Malcolm Turnbull are screaming for the rule of law to be applied to an accused terrorist despite no rule of any law being observed by the terrorist himself. Abbott is wary of giving the judiciary final call on a terrorist’s guilt or otherwise, and for good reason... our soft Left judiciary is responsible for far too many murders as a result of their “compassionate” findings and soft sentencing.



IT'S MORE THAN A QUIXOTIC CALAMITY

The European Renewable Energy Foundation, a Green body supportive of all forms of renewable energy, has carried out research at Edinburgh University involving a look at years of wind farm performance data from the UK and Denmark. Their conclusion is this:


WHY HAS FAIRFAX TURNED ON ME?

In a nutshell? It has become increasingly certain that Shorten cannot possibly beat Abbott at the next election. The Left wants Shorten gone all right, but only because it wants Abbott gone even more.


SHORTEN SHOULD HAVE SHACKED UP WITH GILLARD

So what’s the difference between Shorten and Gillard? Not a lot really, they were both minions of union super crook Bill Ludwig, both fleeced their AWU members of millions, both were employed by dodgy Labor law firms, both were mad shaggers and both knew the exact amounts construction companies would be up for in late completion penalties.


I MUST GET USED TO THIS RUGBY GAME

I was brought up on Aussie rules and knew no other game so when I moved to Sydney I naturally looked for a new Aussie Rules club to play for. Someone suggested St George (it was red and white) so that was good enough for me. Got fit, got selected and turned up for my first game to witness a crowd of around seven. Bloody hell, this is Aussie Rules, where was everyone?


THE OVERPAID JONES BOY SHOWS HIS PINK COLORS

Bronwyn Bishop, the only defender of the faith on Q&A last night, gave a one-faceted bollocking of the despicable Ms Triggs. When Triggs responded, Tony Jones allowed time for the lying Triggs to wallow in lengthy and rapturous applause from a lopsided ALP audience.



WERE PEOPLE SMUGGLERS PAID TO RETURN BOATS?

... of course they were, but it’s more serious than it appears

The image of little brown paper bags at the ready to convince smugglers to turn back their boats is a quaint proposition and certainly not a Cabinet decision... not even Minister Peter Dutton was aware of the tactic when he declared it untrue. But it is true and it’s a foolish one that will reverberate between Jakarta and Canberra.
