The Keystone XL pipeline project has been cancelled by Barack Obama (he was always going to can it). It runs from Canada 3,500 kilometres south through major oil refining US States to Texas and had been partially completed up to stage four.
Malcolm Turnbull’s grinning honeymoon is about up as he struggles to be all things to all people by insisting this year’s budget must be “fair”. Turnbull is slavishly mouthing Shorten’s description of Abbott’s budgets.
Yesterday was a day that defined us as Australians. Where a slip of a girl stood astride the world stage and told those who think only a man can have an affiliation with a horse to, “get stuffed”.
I battled with another bidder at Inglis sales to secure an ordinary looking yearling for a measly $7,000. "Why would you want that horse?", the other bidder asked. "To win the Melbourne Cup with", I replied.
Now there’s a couple of heads you would never get tired of kicking. They are exchanging a few Allahu akbars after demanding to see the colour of the $4 million cash reward promised by Baird and Turnbull for cultivating Farhad Jabar, the 15 year-old killer of Mr Curtis Cheng.
Bill Shorten had completed his diatribe at yesterday’s Press conference and had invited questions when a pimply-faced 18-year-old chick on work experience pounced to ask the first question.

“Demoralise the enemy from within by surprise, terror, sabotage, assassination. This is the war of the future and the victor will never be asked if he lied!” Who said that? ISIS leader, Abu Bakr al Baghdadi perhaps? Maybe Pol Pot or Stalin? Nope.
For each layer of abuse the Royal Commission peels back, there’s yet another more horrific layer ready to unfold... but the Commission is not game to go there. For instance, I reported here a couple of years back about where Qld’s 35th premier, Rob “Bubbles” Borbidge, fits into the gallery of paedophile rogues.
Red bandana, Fitzsumbugger, believes the woman who claims she was raped in a Nauru detention centre, and therefore wanted an abortion, should automatically be believed.
In the late 90s Gillard passed Bill Shorten the baton and he simply carried on with the AWU corruption that had been running rampant for 20 years that we know of. Media’s failure to address Julia Gillard and her boyfriend’s AWU fraud led Shorten to believe he would also be safe from investigation.
"I'll be characterised as that scumbag, crook, fraudster, and at the very best, somebody who's been bewitched by an evil harridan, namely Kathy ... that I'm cunt-struck and that I have been utterly taken in by somebody who's a serious crook," Michael Lawler (pictured) told the ABC who, for the first time, did not bleep the “C” bomb.
