THE PICKERING POST HACKERS

The unrelenting, concerted hacking of the Pickering Post site since the 12-part series exposing halal certification, has been frustrating for all posters. I have been unable to explain what steps were being taken to defeat these opponents of free speech without alerting them to what was being done to defeat them.


A CLOWN BETWEEN TWO THORNS

I didn’t think it possible to ever side with Clive, but Lazarus and Lambie should be run out of town for using the Senate as they have. But they are not on their own, with Bjelke Petersen’s Albert Field being the most notable.


THE HALAL LOGO IS ON THESE RASHERS SOMEWHERE

Tony Abbott cannot be expected to be across every subject but to suggest “Australians are okay with halal” could lead to another near death experience. There is no excuse for not delegating one of his many staff to investigate the huge groundswell of concern over Australia’s massive halal extortion racket.


BILLY AIN’T GOIN’ WALKABOUT JUST YET

The Queensland Labor Government should not blame a little wife-bashing crook like Billy Gordon for falling between the cracks, after all it was Labor’s pre-selection process that chose him, and amid claims of a criminal past that were totally ignored. But Labor has never been all that fussy about who they put up for election.


THE DASTARDLY DASTYARI

NSW Labor Senator, Sam Dastyari, is emblematic of the reason why Labor keeps losing to the loony Left Greens. The diminutive Sussex Street sleaze demanded the sacking of the only honest member of his dishonest Party, Martin Ferguson, for telling the truth. At least the Greens are honest about the extent to which they are dishonest.



Strictly for aviation tragics...


CONSUMER WATCHDOG STILL HUMPING SWANNY’S LEG

“It’s worth looking at”, said Julie Bishop when asked about Twiggy Forrest’s suggestion that regulation of Australia’s iron ore production could restore prices. PM Abbott and Treasurer Hockey rejected the proposal out of hand after hearing from the ACCC that Twiggy could face prosecution for even suggesting Australia’s miners should form a "cartel".


“DON’T LET JOE F**K WITH MY FOREIGN AID CALLING CARD”:

Julie Bishop

Well may Julie Bishop have rolled her eyes when Joe Hockey alluded to the dreaded Expenditure Review Committee in question time on Monday. Julie needs to hold her foreign aid head high on the international stage particularly when she sits as a temporary Security Council member at the UN.


FLY BY WIRE OR FLY BY PILOT

Airbus is struggling with a string of inexplicable crashes that will likely be found to have computers as a contributing factor. Airbus is not at fault. Airline companies have demanded manufacturers produce planes that rely less and less on pilots and more on computers.


WHY ABBOTT DID A U-TURN ON THE BUDGET "EMERGENCY"

When Julia Gillard needed the support of crossbenchers she ran around like a blowfly in a strange shithouse, cornering and cajoling everyone who would listen. As PM she was then able to get no fewer than 560 pieces of legislation through both Houses. Tony Abbott has led from the back, sitting on his hands, and leaving the cajoling to relevant Ministers.


HE NOT ONLY TWEAKS THE GRAPHS, BUT A FEW NIPPLES TOO!

As reported here last year, be prepared for an IPCC barrage of climate misinformation as the pivotal Paris global warming conference draws near. From the ridiculous report that walruses were being forced to mate on rocky foreshores to the Himalayas becoming bereft of snow it’s been a mix of incompetence and outright lies from the IPCC.



NO MAN IS AN ISLAND

... but Fraser was

His cooperation with Governor General Sir John Kerr to have Whitlam sacked in 1975 was duly greeted with wild approval by the electorate, but the Left never forgave him and he suffered the minority’s permanent hatred.


MEET YOUR FUTURE PM AND FIRST LADY

...and there’s not a damned thing you can do about it

Impossible you say? How could the electorate ever conceive of promoting such a flawed character as Bill Shorten to Australia’s highest Office? Well, it will, and not even the Labor Party can do a damned thing about it.


A MOZZIE TV CHANNEL

... Allahu Akbar, ya kiddin' aren’t ya?

Now I don’t mind everyone having their say, but it’s the bloody ads that are goin’ to drive me nuts... specials on vests, cut price bomb materials, cheap halal Syrian passports, two-for-one beheading videos and endless ALP ads.



DEATH TOLL WILL BE MUCH HIGHER

The Kiwis flew over Vanuatu’s southern island of Tanna to record cyclone Pam’s devastation, but Tanna’s topography allows for more protection than most of the northern islands where the real death toll will rise dramatically.


ABBOTT BUSTED BEING HONEST, AGAIN!

The Left is in another frenzy over Abbott’s intention to improve the lives of Aborigines. Telling a glaring truth is politically perilous when Fairfax and the ABC/Guardian are reporting it... they want a Labor Party autocracy led by Turnbull, but first they must somehow get rid of Abbott.


SHIA v SUNNI

... should we care who wins?

Well yes, because, as predicted here last year, Iranian militia will sweep across Iraq like a tsunami toward Jordan and Israel in the absence of a US presence and no other nation will dare intervene, except to drop a few bombs on dodgy, unidentified targets killing more civilians.
