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.
An exclusive report from an ex-staffer on Christmas Island lifts the lid on how Triggs has shockingly politicised and all but destroyed the Human Rights Commission. Her Commission’s role is now entirely untenable.
There’s a look of death in Bill Shorten’s eyes. His unconvincing anti-Abbott bravado, his confected grin and his repetitive, hollow claims that he tirelessly struggles to improve the conditions of the working man have become distant and meaningless echoes of Gillard.
Fancy the ABC’s Sarah Ferguson being able to sanitise Kev to look almost economically responsible and statesman like. You have to hand it to her, bloody marvellous. And in the end it just shows that you should never judge a book by its cover.
At 84 years of age Frank Lowy should be admired for his mental dexterity, if not his physical skill, in trying to kill off Australia’s involvement in the FIFA bribery story. But the SKY interview left many questions unanswered by Australia's number one philanthropist.
It seems that Arabs and Jews are avowed enemies until it comes to sharing in a world-wide scam like a food tax. Since The Pickering Post published its 13 Part Halal certification expose earlier this year, the Federal Government has moved to establish a Parliamentary inquiry into all forms of food certification including halal.
Stripping active jihadists of their citizenship may prove more difficult than stripping Gillian Triggs of her Commission. Triggs cannot be dismissed as she enjoyed a five-year Rudd appointment in 2007 and a further five years bestowed by Gillard in 2012. Ten years of this obnoxious woman has left both sides of Parliament squirming in their seats. Only Fairfax and the ABC give the lying Triggs unqualified support.
We seem to have an over quota of noisy Left-leaning female boneheads like Hanson-Young, Summers, and Triggs since Gillard left her White King-resistant skid marks on government.
Retired US Lieutenant General David Deptula said recently, “The ultimate guidance (regarding air strikes in Iraq) rests with the black guy with his feet on the desk. Over three quarters of pilots leaving Gulf carriers are returning without dropping anything due to delays in decision-making up the chain of command in Obama's War council.”
Global warming and marriage equality? Take your pick. Both are massive scams the proponents want resolved by the end of this year, both are presented as something they are not and both have bewitched the entire political spectrum with some very effective, albeit dishonest, PR.
Thought I’d grab my bottle of Mylanta and risk a trip to the dark side last night to see if Q&A had improved. Leaving the swear jar handy, the family quickly disappeared as I braced myself for that hideous Jones smirk.
Fair dinkum I’ve seen enough of this galah, and I’m a Swans supporter. Goodes needs to go and take his racist antics with him. He is well past his use by date and anyway the Swans have plenty of better players who are prepared to carry the Aboriginal flag with honour and pride.
The ever opportunistic Mr Bill Shorten wants to change the Marriage Act to replace the words, “MAN AND WOMAN” and “HUSBAND AND WIFE” with, “TWO PEOPLE”. That doesn’t sound like “marriage equality” to me, it sounds more like “A Marriage Act hijack”.
I hate being a lonely little petunia on my own blog but I actually couldn’t give a stuff about marriage... any sort of marriage! Marriage is responsible for the sky high divorce rate and very few divorces end amicably. So why the hell do we do emotionally destructive things like marrying each other?
Australia is now out of the World Cup race until at least 2042 and a corrupt FIFA decision to award the 2022 event to Qatar, over favourites Japan, the US and Australia, is seen as no more than a sick joke.
