DON’T THROW ANOTHER PRAWN ON THE BARBY FOR SIR PETER

...anyway, where the bloody hell are ya Peter?

There will be an empty space on our barbeque grills today and an empty space in our stomachs, because our most Aussie GG ever, and Australian of the year, Peter Cosgrove will not be raising the flag or sharing a beer and a snag with us.


PARIS MAYOR TO SUE FOX NEWS!

Fox News says sorry, but what WTF for?

The American cable television channel Fox News has been profusely apologising for referring to Muslim areas in Europe as “no-go” zones after radical Left Paris Mayor, Anne Hidalgo, (pictured) threatened to sue the network.


HALF-MAST... IT FLAGS GOVT’S STATE OF DENIAL

Barack Obama refused to join world leaders in a unity march that followed the Islamists’ murder of Paris journalists but he is dropping everything to travel to Ryhadh to pay personal homage to a dead Saudi “king” who was instrumental in cultivating terrorism and undermining the West.


NO WONDER WE GO EASY ON ISLAM

Now you could forgive an excited, and away-with-the-fairies, Prince Charles for ejaculating in his biodegradable green underpants when in the presence Saudi royalty, I mean royalty is royalty to a royal, right? And you could forgive a Muslim President for bowing to his forebears, but for the Poms to grovel to such a decadent Islamic sewer of inhumanity that is the House of Saud with half-mast flags is astounding. Is je suis Charlie already a distant memory?


THE KING IS DEAD, LONG LIVE THE EQUALLY EVIL KING

Wahhabist Saudi King Abdullah bin Abdulaziz is dead and everyone in the West, except Barack Obama, bemoans the fact that he died peacefully under an anaesthetic rather than having his head brutally hacked off.


MONEY NOT DIPLOMACY WORKS FOR THE INDONESIANS


CAN ABBOTT SURVIVE?

...it's all in the body language

Tony Abbott successfully brought the Coalition to power in a record landslide election, dispensing with a toxic and incompetent Rudd/Gillard rat pack that threw every dirty trick imaginable at him.


KEEP YOUR FRIENDS CLOSE AND YOUR ENEMIES EVEN CLOSER

... but first know who your enemies are

“We are not terrorists, our religion has been hijacked, Islam is a religion of peace”, said my moderate Muslim friend. “Oh, I apologise, I have been unfair to you. Here I was thinking you wanted Shariah Law imposed here in Australia”, I replied. There was a moment’s silence. “That’s different”, he said, and that’s why I’ve lost another friend.


THE INJUSTICE OF INDONESIAN JUSTICE

The idiocy of Islamic Indonesian justice allows this man to live. Abu Bakar Bashir is the jailed spiritual leader of the south-east Asian terror network responsible for the Bali bombings that killed 88 Australians. He is currently serving a jail term on unrelated terror matters and is expected to be released in the near future to continue his wicked work.


MANUS JUST ANOTHER RUDD STUFF-UP


A NEW WAR THE WEST HASN'T GOT ITS HEAD AROUND, YET

It is difficult to imagine how our $20 billion new generation F-35 joint strike fighter will combat the new generation of war games. China may have stolen the plans but they will be of little use because current rules of engagement involve cyber warfare, IEDs, suicide bombers, guerrilla door-to-door warfare, kidnappings, and terrorist attacks. None of which has a role for the F-35.



WHERE DO MUSLIMS BECOME RADICALISED?

... need a clue?

Okay, um, they are white Mid-Eastern type buildings that are now referred to as “Centres of Worship” when applying for council approvals and they are where Muslims rush out of in a rage each Friday after prayers wanting to kill non-Muslims. And they have tall minarets symbolic of dominance. Yaaay, you got it... mosques!


OOH, WHO LET THE DOGS OUT?

When the Left starts looking for a legacy, look out! Barack Obama has released yet more former high-value Al Queda operatives from Gitmo into reluctant countries that took dirty US money. And these professional terrorists will soon be off to join the others in Yemen to plan further attacks on the West, or does Obama believe they’ll be looking for jobs with a halal compliant KFC outlet.



FREE SPEECH IS QUITE EXPENSIVE

As the media had taken over my joint yesterday I was unable to get back here to talk with you guys. Instead I tried to get through to some yobbos out there just how important freedom of speech really is.


DRUGS MAKETH THE JIHADIST

You can’t expect a budding Islamic State Jihadist to pick up a knife and start decapitating people just like that. Far too horrific an act for the uninitiated. But reports are filtering through from those (well, at least one of those) who had failed the Jihadi course and was lucky enough to return alive.


DOES IT REALLY MATTER IF WE KNOW WHAT WE ARE DOING?

While Abbott agonises over whether to call the Islamic State of Iraq and Syria a “Death Cult” or simply the “Daesh”, thereby deftly avoiding the word "Islamic", Julie Bishop makes a post-Paris announcement that al-Raqqah, in Syria’s north, is now a no-go city for aspiring Aussie Jihadists. Did Abbott not sack Gillard’s army of useless spin doctors, because it seems they are still on staff?


MUSLIMS MIGHT PRACTISE TAQIYYA

... but our dear Darwin told lies too

To see the beautiful city of Paris self destruct is depressing. To hear French President Hollande say Islamic terrorism has nothing to do with Islam is distressing. It’s sickening that our leaders resolutely refuse to identify an evil enemy within. So I’m going to clear my head of Islam this weekend and you can come along with me if you like to add your thoughts to what I believe is a vexing issue.
