OH DEAR, HOW DID THIS HAPPEN?

...and right under our noses

We all know that we vote for a Party’s candidate, the successful Party then elects a leader who becomes the Prime Minister. We don’t elect the PM; that’s the Westminster system. So where has it all gone so terribly wrong?


A UN SEAT FOR BISHOP’S NEW BEAU

In 2012 Julie Bishop said of Bob Carr and his wife’s travel arrangements, "It is not common practice for a Foreign Minister or a Secretary of State to travel with a spouse for the business part of a visit, I guess what's quite concerning is it is against the (Labor) Government's own ministerial guidelines.


“I WOULD NOT ADVOCATE THAT WE PUT A MUSLIM IN CHARGE OF THIS NATION”

...just who is Ben Carson talking about?

And he is not backing down. Of course his jelly-backed GOP co-candidates immediately joined the Left media in roundly condemning his stance as unconstitutional. But Carson is just one of the frontrunners in the Republican race who has never been a politician and his candidacy is candidly refreshing.


WATER ON MARS...WOW!

Do you notice anything curious about the following news item: “EVIDENCE OF LIQUID WATER FOUND ON MARS... NASA's Curiosity Rover has found that water can exist as a liquid near the Martian surface.


TURNBULL COOL WITH WARMING


JULIE QUICKLY INTO BED WITH UN WARMISTS

... and without a chaperone this time!

You wouldn’t want to read the UN’s 69 "Sustainable Development Goals" Julie Bishop has just signed Australia up to and if you had, you would be white with rage. Perhaps you will now believe me that Minister Bishop was a key player in the knifing of her first term PM. Abbott knew all along he could never trust her.


WHO NEEDS WIND WHEN YOU'VE GOT SUBSIDIES

A unique set of circumstances gave Turnbull the keys to Kirribilli House, but he didn’t want them, he decided to stay in his far nicer house at Point Piper while he does his filthy global warming deals with the Greens in exchange for economic reform.



A MEETING OF THE WORLD’S TWO GREAT RELIGIONS?

I wrote earlier this year that we should be prepared for an all out campaign in support of the global warming hoax from the habitual liars of the IPCC. This disgraced UN organisation has successfully co-opted the Left media to re-run docos of sunburnt polar bears and fractured glaciers while an insolvent Press will promote a flat earth thesis for the cost of a half page ad.


DIFFERENT BIRDS, SIMILAR FEATHERS?

To discover the culprits of any coup, look no further than the beneficiaries. Those who benefited most from the Turnbull coup are those promoted to his new Cabinet plus a few obligatory women.


WHY PETA DOESN'T TRUST JULIE

[I disagree with Paul Zanetti’s post mortem of the coup and I have told him so, but hey, he has a right to express his considered opinion and, despite many posters falsely attributing the opinion piece to me, I have a duty to publish it and a right to disagree with it.]


THE DEPUTY MAYOR MAY HAVE HIS ISIS EYES ON MORE THAN ONE BLOCK

Auburn (NSW) deputy mayor, Salim Mehajers, who demanded a whole block in Lidcombe be shut down and threatened that residents' vehicles would be towed away to ensure his Islamic wedding ran smoothly has some interesting friends.


FAIRFAX AND THE ABC WIN THIS ROUND

Fairfax struck the quinella with the death of Abbott and the mortal wounding of Hockey. Both were despised by the Left Press and it doesn’t pay to sue Fairfax over a "Treasurer for sale" headline and win. But the biggest winner was the ABC... it flummed the trifecta


UNDER THE ICE WITH MALCOLM

Look, I’m no physicist and I’m no climatologist, in fact I left school at 13 because I wanted to learn stuff, but I certainly feel more qualified than Malcolm Turnbull and his lefty mates Tim Flannery and Ross Garnaut to tell you about how melting ice would affect sea levels, because it’s not exactly what they say and it’s not exactly rocket science either.



LIBS LURCH LEFT RATHER THAN LOSE

.. and it will be a high price to pay

The measure of a man is not how high he climbed but who he climbed over and Malcolm Turnbull had borrowed one of Bill Shorten’s knives. Over many dark nights he moved on Abbott’s deputy who had an intense hatred for Peta Credlin.



THE LEFT PRESS IS KNEE DEEP IN A WATERWORLD OF ITS OWN

How can you tell the latest reshuffle scoop was invented, generated and distributed by snotty nosed cadets in the Press Gallery? Well, because it’s only they who believe, or pray, that Malcolm Turnbull will take Australia to the Paris “climate change” Conference at year’s end.


PUTIN STEPS INTO THE BREACH

... while Barry stays in bed

Ignoring Secretary of State John Kerry’s warning, Vladimir Putin has sent freighter aircraft loaded with military equipment and combat-ready troops into Syria in preparation for an all out assault on Syrian rebels who are closing in on Bashar al-Assad.


ABBOTT DODGES THE MOZZIES... WINK, WINK

and just wait ‘til S.H-Y finds out

Turkmen, Yazidis, Kurds, Armenians, Roman Catholic Arabs... if he looks hard enough Tony Abbott might even find a few ethnically persecuted Babylonians still wandering around. But all 12,000 will come from those in camps and not from those flooding Europe.
