Only last year Syria’s President Bashar Assad was democratically elected to office. He stood against two other credible candidates and gained a clear majority.
Greg Norman once said, “If I park my new Ferrari anywhere in LA, I get kids asking if they can wash it for me. When I park it in Melbourne I get kids who want to run coins down the side of it.” And there my friends, is the politics of jealousy. And there too rests the small minds of Labor luminaries.
A 15-year-old! How could that happen? We must quickly lower the age a child can be detained to 14. Oh bugger! Did you say there’s a 12-year-old now? Better make that 11, maybe 10. We are watching media, a Government and its security agencies in total disarray and they are lying to us in an attempt to, of all things, placate and render comfort to the guilty.
Watching the Royal Commission into Unions over the last few days and watching Bill Shorten’s obvious discomfiture when attempting to respond to the damning evidence, evokes flashbacks to Gillard and Wilson. The scam was exactly the same. The only difference was that Gillard arranged for the defrauded funds to be laundered through property renovations.
You can understand Greens and doctors wanting to kidnap kids from hospitals, they’ve lived their lives in universities and Labor law firms, but not nurses. A little bit of forethought wouldn’t go astray here and Greens and doctors have never been very good at that, so let’s get one thing straight:
If you could take the Islam out of the Muslim you’d probably have a nice bloke, but what chance is there of that? Once a Muslim toddler is taught that non-Muslims must perish at the hands of righteous jihadists, then you will never change him.
Who is Islam’s official arbiter, curator and promoter of the horrific Shariah law? Why it’s none other than Mr Turnbull’s new best friend, his eminence the non-English speaking grand mufti of Australia Dr (everyone’s a doctor or a sheik) Ibrahim Abu Mohamed.
The Foreign Ministry is the plum job every Minister wants. The person elected Deputy Leader has the choice of portfolio and Shorten’s shadow deputy, Plibersek, made the same choice. It’s the greatest rort going with first class travel for you and your spouse, the best in hotels and sumptuous tucker. There is no need for you to get involved in boring parochial politics, it’s impossible to make a mistake, you can make lots of friends with a limitless budget and of course DFAT is accountable to no-one.
Australia’s multiple disconnected Security Agencies are noticeably hard at work investigating yet another “politically motivated incident”, soon after it happened... and still they don’t get it!
A 15 year old Muslim kid commits an act of terrorism and murders a police employee. PM Turnbull said, “We must never blame Muslims for a tiny minority”. That’s polispeak for, “Please allow me to appease you further.”
“Road accidents kill more Americans than terrorists”, said Obama, again determined to play down Islamic terrorism in the wake of yet another school massacre. Gun crimes kill more Americans than um... well, if you include 9/11 and Obama’s "workplace incidents” it’s less than 4,000 Americans who have died on home soil at the hands of terrorists compared to almost 10,000 violent gun deaths so far this year. That’s sort of correct Mr President, but 7,500 of those 10,000 were suicides.
Surprise, surprise... Putin is usurping what should be the role of the black bloke who created this mess. No surprise to Pickering Post readers, because they got it first here weeks ago: http://pickeringpost.com/story/putin-steps-into-the-breach/5335 It seems, as Putin suggests, Obama still doesn’t realise what he has done.
The foyer of Al Jazeera’s headquarters in Doha, Qatar, is adorned with graphics assigning terrorism a leading role: There is bin Laden seated on a mat, his submachine gun on his lap; further along there is bin Laden again, on horseback this time, in Afghanistan... the brave regal knight of the Arab world. A huge, glamorous poster of bin Laden's silhouette hangs in the background of the main studio.
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?
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.
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.
