Four-time Walkley Award winning political commentator and Churchill Fellow, has returned to the fray over concern that the integrity of news dissemination is continually being threatened by a partisan media.

AN INTERNATIONAL WOMEN’S DAY!

WTF for?

Gender equality is something I hope never happens because if women and men were ever to be equal it will take all the interest out of shopping. If women hate being seen as sex objects why do they go to such extreme lengths to ensure they are?


HILLARY’S LAST POST

A private email address to conduct the affairs of State will ensure Hillary Clinton’s Democratic presidential nomination has all but disappeared into cyberspace. She has handed over 50,000 pieces of email that concern (she says) her activity in the highly sensitive position of Secretary of State.


HOUSTON, WE HAVE A PROBLEM

... kindness is killing the families

As suggested here one year ago an extended search for MH370 will be an exercise in futility. It’s a commendable attempt to give bereaved families closure but the search is providing anything but closure, it is providing a forlorn hope... something, anything, no matter how unrealistic, to cling to.


MARX MEETS A MUSLIM

Julia looked lovingly into Barack’s eyes, “You were right Barry, just ignore any dirty history, kick the can down the road and let the conservatives come across it later.” Barack leaned back rolling a joint, “Yeah babe, it’s amazing the unholy damage that can be done to future generations of little white dickheads, particularly when Hillary Clinton’s helping ya.”



TIME TO PUT INDONESIA BACK IN ITS BOX

... before it seriously hurts itself

Make no mistake, Indonesia’s Joko Widodo, represents the Islamic masses who hate us... the Bali bombing that killed 88 Aussies was orchestrated by his constituents. That’s why the bomb-maker will soon leave jail to re-commence his handicraft while the military prepares to shoot a dozen or so foreigners.



PEOPLE POWER WINS

... reclaiming your Australia

Digging deep into the halal certification scam has not presented a pretty sight, but every dark cloud has a silver lining. I have been informed that a number of Coalition MPs are now ready to move on halal certification.


THE TERROR TAX

(Part 12)

Australian consumers nervously worry that their hard earned dollars might be making their way from the checkout counter to terrorist organisations, which have tentacles reaching into Australia. It sounds like another conspiracy theory, until you take a closer look.


OBAMA COPS A NETANYAHU HAMMERING


THE DECEPTIVE WORLD OF Mr El MOUELHY

(Part 11)

Competition amongst Australia’s halal certifiers is hot and getting hotter. There are 33 known certifiers in a country of fewer than 500,000 Muslims - a relatively small halal market. Many Muslims in Australia don’t strictly observe halal going by chats I’ve had with Muslim shop owners.


SENATE NUMBERS DEFEND THE INDEFENSIBLE

...Triggs still an habitual liar

Very few Australians watched the Senate Estimates Committee last November when Gillian Triggs chaired an inquiry that proved her ability to eclipse Gillard as a Labor liar.


THE UNSOCIAL MEDIA OF Mr El MOUELHY

(Part 10)

If the general public wasn’t forced to pay a food tax, with their money going to unknown Islamic causes in a highly-charged global and domestic environment, there wouldn’t be this level of outrage. The certifying scamsters claim that consumer objection is all about halal food. Not so!


SCOTTY MORRISON IS A CRUSTY YOUNG CHRISTIAN

The arcane Scotty Morrison is slowly firming to replace Tony Abbott but he doesn’t really want the poison chalice of a recalcitrant Senate right now and is keeping his powder dry. But he may be drafted (forced) into a depleted field of contenders.


NOTHING TO DO WITH EXPORTS

... it's just that we all eat halal slaughtered meat whether we like it or not! (Part 9)

Purveyors of halal certification use this threat to the Federal Government: “If you politicians touch our halal certification gold mine then we will destroy your meat export markets and with them, Australian jobs.” And I guess that’s why Barnaby Joyce refuses to return my phone calls.


LONE WOLVES WHO PREY ON OUR FOOD

Part 8

Australia has had as many as 55 recognised halal certifiers (permitted by the grace and arrangement of the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia). We currently have 33 halal certifiers which have formed into two main groups:


SHARIA CREEP

... and a Royal Commission into the halal scam you're not supposed to know about (Part 7)

A mostly clueless, lazy and uninformed media lies asleep at the wheel, waking up occasionally to contrive shock-and-awe at every wink, mispronunciation or twitch of Tony Abbott. In the meantime, the biggest scam ever to involve every Australian - Muslims and non-Muslims alike– is allowed to proliferate right under the media’s snoring nose.


A CHALLENGE MIGHT HURT BAIRD

... but it will seal the fate of the Bali two

The backbench sharks are circling a bloodied Abbott while Fairfax and the ABC, desperate for a kill, are madly chumming the waters in anticipation. Tony Abbott has fought gallantly but his iridescent colours have turned to burnt umber and he is about to become bait for bigger fish.



MONEY FOR NOTHING

...halal certification in Australia (Part 6)

The ‘Get Rich’ halal certifiers are now on the back foot. Consumers and Islamic scholars are pushing back against the halal moneymen. Politicians are listening to angry constituents. The issue is a hot topic on the public airwaves, online and in our Federal Parliament.
