IS DONALD A NICE MAN AFTER ALL?

Once vanquished, crooked senior politicians are often considered to have already suffered sufficient humiliation so as to avoid criminal charges. Or is it that those capable of initiating prosecution might also need similar such compassion one day?



PERUVIAN LOVEFEST WITH A BLACK FELLA

... just come home Malcolm and stop shitting in our nest

Only Julia Gillard surpassed Malcolm Turnbull in joint verbal masturbation with Barack Obama. Malcolm discovered a new-found urge to bite pillows as he lauded the wonderful legacy of his African American friend. He actually bemoaned the fact that he did not have the Executive jurisdiction to reign for yet another four years. Never has Malcolm exposed his realpolitik so precisely and without shame to all back home and to anyone listening.



FRUSTRATED ABORIGINAL WOMEN SPILL THE CULTURAL BEANS

Which race is the more ancient and primitive? Islamic or Aboriginal? If you said Islamic you had better buy a history book because the answer is the Aboriginal race by around 50,000 years. So why do we still expect a sophisticated response when trillions of dollars is thrown at an Aboriginal race to try to drag it into the 21st century?


LIBS BETTER FIND A NEW PM OR PREPARE TO COP SHORTEN

... but there is a way out of the Turnbull mess and it's not Tony Abbott

The push for an Abbott rebirth by Andrew Bolt is unrealistic. Rudd, Gillard, Rudd has a certain ring to it and is expected of a desperate ALP but Abbott, Turnbull, Abbott doesn’t really fit the staid Libs. As Lib elders once told Abbott, when he approached them in the late nineties about the PM position, “We just don’t see you in that role Tony”. Tony ignored their judgment and the rest is history.


THERE’S A FINGER IN LABOR’S DYKE

... so look out for more than a squirt of anti-US guff

Penelope Ying-Yen Wong, Labor’s new shadow Minister for Foreign Affairs, after Tanya Plibersek disclosed that she thought Africa was a country, has returned Labor to the US-hating force of the cold war period. As if Turnbull and Shorten haven’t already done enough damage to the alliance. So naturally, Fairfax has given the hapless Penny a voice. Thank God no-one reads the SMH and thank God Penny Wong isn’t in government.


WHAT THE HELL IS THIS GOOSE UP TO NOW?

PM Malcolm Turnbull has just done exactly what Donald Trump has publicly forecast he will reverse. For Turnbull to ratify the Australian commitment to the Paris global warming scam after the President-elect has called it a hoax and has given notice of scuttling the entire fraud, is plain bloody stupid... and gives a dangerous middle finger to America's next Administration.


IF YOU WERE PM FOR A DAY

... what one thing would you do?

That’s if you controlled the House and the Senate with a compliant Cabinet. Maybe outlaw deficit spending? But borrowings and the budget would need to be in surplus first. What about a flat rate of taxation to dismantle the ATO or defunding the ABC and SBS? Maybe defunding the CSIRO or the HRC. Possibly banning unions and overseas entities from financially funding or participating in general elections? Voluntary suicide restricted to only Green Parliamentarians would be good! A republic maybe?



WOW!!!! BLOODY RIPPER!!!!

I can hardly see my keyboard through the alcoholic haze inflicted in last night’s celebration with friends. This is not only a victory for America, this victory will alter a world that was deteriorating under Left globalisation. This is a fantastic result for common sense. And I’m still scrubbing egg off my face while incredulous that miracles, it seems, can really happen.



A FINE DAY FOR MEDIA, BUT A FOUL DAY FOR US

It’s six in the morning and there are ants in the sink and an ominous leaden sky forecasting a nasty storm as polls start closing in America in a couple of hours. We went out for Chinese last night and the kids didn’t sleep due to an overdose of MSG, so everyone is dead beat and picking a fight.


WOODWARD AND BERNSTEIN... WHERE ARE YOU THIS TIME FELLAS?

I was working in Canberra over 40 years ago, when Watergate broke and we all marvelled at the two journos who relentlessly unearthed what President Tricky Dicky Nixon had been up to with the help of a certain “Deep Throat”. It was exceptional investigative reporting and they even made a movie about it called, “All the President’s Men”.


150% INCREASE IN FLORIDA’S HISPANIC VOTE ENOUGH TO SINK TRUMP

... more praying needed now

Recent Florida polls show Trump is losing the Hispanic vote by historic margins to Hillary Clinton. As I have often said, if Hillary gains Florida (39 EC votes) there is no credible path left for Trump. It’s a math thing. With a few exceptions the number of electors in each State is equal to the number of members of Congress to which a State is entitled to in electoral college votes; California (55), New York (29), Texas (38), Pennsylvania (20) etc.



IF WOMEN WANT EQUALITY THEY’D BETTER LIFT THEIR GAME

... ‘cos no man will want equality with this feminist sludge

I don’t believe women get less attractive with age, actually they get more yummy, but Gillian Triggs of the HRC is an exception. She has never been a nice person, she has never had an appealing personality but often the lines on one’s aging face indicate discontent and acidic disdain for others. And now when you see a pic of Triggs you see into her evil heart. She cannot hide it and nor does she bother trying to.
