TONY'S BOYS JOIN THIS LOONY LOT

Nationals Senators Ron Boswell, Barry O’Sullivan and John Williams may have detonated more of Tony Abbott’s arsenal than they realise by declaring they will cross the floor to defeat his Paid Parental Leave scheme.


BEWARE THE BERGDAHL BULLSHIT

Oz media still hasn’t noticed the explosive Bergdahl story. It was avoided for a week before SKY ran a misleading US Administration report that Bowe Bergdahl was locked in a cage in a darkened room by the Taliban.



OLD LEADERS NEVER DIE

... they simply hang around and create havoc

When Julia Gillard ousted Kevin Rudd I advised her (for her own benefit) to display some magnanimity and give him back his beloved Foreign Affairs portfolio. Instead she used a casual Senate vacancy to humiliate him and gifted the juicy portfolio to an unelected Bob Carr.


IN THE NAME OF THE FATHER, THE SON AND THE..."HOLY MACKEREL!"

I was wrong when I said disturbing details of the Bowe Bergdahl “swap” will emerge next week. They are emerging now and they reveal a defining moment in Barack Obama’s presidency that may well end in impeachment at the hands of his own Democrats.


NOT JUST OUR JUDGES


NOW THE SAUDIS SUSS OUT CADBURY

The discovery of pork DNA in Cadbury hazel nut and roasted almond bars last week provoked a storm in Malaysia with Muslim groups accusing the company of “betrayal” and calling for a Jihad (holy war) to be waged against “Cadbury’s Malaysia”, an importer and British multinational owned by “Mondelez International”.


DO FIVE TERRORISTS EQUAL ONE U.S. TRAITOR?

...Obama thinks so

If you watch the video of the exchange of five Taliban terrorists for one Sgt Bowe Bergdahl, you will notice Bergdahl blinking wildly. He wanted the Americans to believe he had been kept in the dark for long periods. He hadn’t been. How can you tell? Well, when he was spoken to, and needed to concentrate, he forgot to blink. Bergdahl was no captive of the Taliban, he was a collaborator.


Co payment is ideological not economical



MONEY MAKES THE WORLD GO WARM

Weight of money can convince you the Earth is dangerously warming, when common sense says otherwise. Weight of money can convince you that the AIDS virus is unrelated to homosexuality, when all evidence is to the contrary. It can convince you that the earth is doomed via depletion of the ozone layer.


A BIT OF A PARTY ANIMAL

Victorian Opposition leader, Daniel Andrew’s suggestion that he and Premier Napthine have tea and scones this morning with the Governor to seek his advice regarding a potential Constitutional crisis is crazy stuff.


I CAN SEE CLEARLY NOW...

My TV set has finally croaked it. After 12 years of never being off, I believe switching things on and off wears them out. (A continuous cab I once drove had 600,000 mile on the clock.) Anyway, it was looking like a 3D experiment without the cardboard glasses, and the picture kept shaking.



MALCOLM SMELLS BLOOD IN THE WATER

Twelve years ago Tony Abbott canvassed with colleagues the possibility of becoming leader of the Liberal Party. He was told, “Forget it Tony, it’s not really your go, we don’t see you in that way.”


MY VOTE DON’T MEAN SHIT

For over 60 years and ever since my morning paper-round chats in Haverbrack Avenue, East Malvern with PM, Mr Menzies, I have had a fascination with politics... and this is how I figure the game works.


MH370: SILENCE IS GOLDEN, MR ABBOTT

A stationary satellite would have detected the movement of MH370 by reading the frequency. A car moving toward you makes a different sound than when it is moving away from you due to sound waves being compacted and then stretched. A satellite cannot detect sound waves but it can detect the frequency of a signal.


CADBURY COPS A JIHAD

It was first reported in the US this week that Cadbury is in real trouble with its export market. After having paid the Indonesian Halal Certification mob the correct protection money, the Malaysian Health Ministry has found traces of pork DNA in its products. All hell has broken loose.


BENDIGO BANK'S LITTLE BOMBER

Bendigo residents will know of a certain Mr Donald Erskine who appears to own, or have his fingers in, much of everything that ticks in the city.
