TONY GROWS A COUPLE

... but is it all too late?

His epiphany was not on the road to Damascus but on the road to Tripoli where 21 of Egypt’s Christians were beheaded by 21 Muslim savages. If the victims were described as Christian then the word Muslim surely described the perpetrators. To name one ideology and not the other not only defies logic but defies 1400 years of violent history. Were the Crusades not Christian?


MALEVOLENT MUFTIS

Tony Abbott has finally taken aim at Islam with his statement that “no more benefit of the doubt” be given to Muslim leaders who lie about their intentions. Last year he was assured of “inclusive cooperation” from Islamic clerics who promised to rein in their radical youth. Of course they lied... and the grand master of lying is the self-styled grand mufti of Australia, Ibrahim Abu Mohammed (pic. right).



“YOU'VE GOT TO HAND IT TO THEM”

said Turnbull on boats success

Who the hell is “them” Malcolm? A Freudian slip that went unnoticed but there is little doubt the man with the shocking record as Lib leader wants another crack and the ABC is determined to see he gets it. But first it must hunt down and kill a wounded Abbott.


ALL YOU EVER WANTED TO KNOW ABOUT HALAL CERTIFICATION

A three month investigation by pickeringpost.com has uncovered what may be the definitive guide to international halal certification. Some surprising facts have emerged including damning evidence from Muslims themselves who have labelled the "certification" practice as an outright scam.



A DEGREE IN UM...

does it really matter?

“Ideology before common sense” is the perverted principle of Labor and the Greens. Free health care, free education and free everything else, including money, is the egalitarian dream of the Left. And who pays for it? Who cares, that will be the problem of an incoming conservative government and any legislation it attempts to rescind will help to get us back into government again. (see polls)


I LOVE STICKING IT UP THOSE AUSSIE BASTARDS

A healthy majority of Australians supports the execution of the Bali two and I find myself in the minority once again. The last chance of clemency was lost in the official cacophony of objections from both sides of Parliament. It sealed the fate of those two idiots.


“JUST LEAVE HER IN THE CORNER AND SHE’LL DIE”

Gillian Triggs’ thoughts on her own handicapped daughter

Without a good supply of Mylanta handy it’s difficult to write about a politically biased woman using innocent children in detention to further her own vile agenda. Abbott’s unprecedented rage over this despicable Human Rights Commissioner is fully justified and the ABC’s defence of her is to be expected.


SO THEY GET RADICALISED IN SYRIA EH?

...how about in the comfort of a local mosque

Security authorities are reeling in shock at a “new under-the-radar” menace threatening Aussies. Billions spent on security seem clearly misdirected when all it takes is an alert neighbour to finger two of Gillard’s refugees as terrorists.


GET THIS GUY'S BROTHER IN GITMO

... and waterboard the bastard

In the latter stages of his tenure and when he cannot be re-elected anyway, Obama has begun revealing his true anti-American, pro-Islamic colours and boy are they revealing.


DON’T KILL ANYTHING UNLESS YOU INTEND TO EAT IT, MR JOKO

... or maybe you do

J.BISHOP: Australian Foreign Minister here, put me through to Joko Widodo please.



101, BUT ONLY SO MANY NIPPLES

Abbott’s problem is that he was too successful in killing off Rudd/Gillard/Rudd. A litter of over 100 is unwieldy, unhappy, uncontrollable and unproductive. History is littered with many huge majorities that ended in tears. Campbell Newman’s the most recent.


TONY, SURELY NOT YOU!

Samantha Maiden is one of the better political journos around and a terrific sheila but it appears she has been pushed to come up with an exclusive on Abbott... and she has. Unfortunately it’s an exclusive that makes no sense and to be honest, I don’t believe it.


MALCOLM IN THE MIDDLE?

... not really, he dresses to the far Left

Those conservatives crying tears of blood for Tony Abbott, forget it! You have a much bigger problem on your hands because the Libs are about to self-destruct. They are about to elect someone who will lead them into the valley of death. The no-name backbenchers proposing a spill motion weren’t thinking Turnbull... they were thinking Bishop or Morrison!



A VOTE FOR ABBOTT IS A VOTE FOR SHORTEN

And that’s the quandary the Party Room will face on Tuesday. The word “loyalty” is not listed in the political lexicon but the word “survival” is explained in full. As suggested here many posts ago Tony Abbott has no way out at the Party Room Meeting but to take the lead and call for a vote of confidence in his leadership. He says he won’t, and for good reason.


MID-EAST AFLAME WHILE WEST FIDDLES

A Turkish people smuggler has claimed thousands of ISIS operatives have posed as refugees and entered Europe to commit acts of terror or simply “lie in wait” prior to receiving orders from al-Raqqa in Syria. His claims were confirmed by a spokesperson for the Islamic State. “Just wait” he said, “we have gone like asylum seekers.”
