FROGS LEAP FROM SWAMP

Without a major terrorist event in the next two weeks Marine Le Pen cannot win the Presidency but she has already won the hearts of what were once socialist tadpoles across France.


A BLOODY WALL?

...he is kidding surely!

Building a wall over 2,000k along the USA border with Mexico is surely only symbolic and something dumb Yanks could understand during an election campaign. But now in the post-election real world it's obviously extraordinarily expensive, silly, unnecessary and plain bloody stupid. No doubt many posters on this site will disagree with me.



GANGRENOUS GREENS PREFER KILLER SHARKS' AND CROCS' LIVES TO OUR KIDS' LIVES

“The sea is the sharks’ environment and we are trespassing”, is the reason the Greens tell us they will not allow drum-lining for great whites to make our favourite beaches safer. Mention netting and the Greens go into an hysterical meltdown.


WHO SHOULD YOU FEAR MOST

... Putin or this bastard?

Imposition of sanctions on any country only hurts the wrong people and sanctions never work, in fact they usually lead to wars. The Treaty of Versailles put Germany in an intolerable position it had to extricate itself from. Germany was not even a party to the decision to impose massive sanctions but it gave Hitler the opportunity to convince his people that action must be taken.



IS A DELUSIONAL LITTLE DEMENTED TURD ABOUT TO MEET HIS MAKER?

The crack Seals team that killed Osama bin Laden is in training to take out the Zika Kid when ordered to. Should be a piece of cake compared to bin Laden who hid within a stone's throw of a major Pakistani Military base. The poor bastard who fingered bin Laden's whereabouts to the US still rots in a Pakistani gaol without his $US20 million reward money. Hmmm, but everyone knows where the Zika Kid is.


SURPRISE SURPRISE, AL-ASSAD HAS HOME-GROWN SUPPORT

... but you'd never know that from our media

“Death to Turkey,” says Egypt, “death to Egypt,” says Turkey, “death to Turkey,” says Libya, “death to Libya,” says Turkey, “death to Iran” says Saudi Arabia,“death to Saudi Arabia,” says Iran, “death to Saudi Arabia,” say the Yemeni Houthis, “death to the Houthis,” says Saudi Arabia, but all agree as one when it comes to, “death to Israel and America”. What a bloody mess!


“I’VE FORGOTTEN HER LAST NAME”,

said Andrew Bolt, as he invited Kirralie Smith to discuss Easter

Well, I guess “Smith” is an unusually difficult name to recall. But Bolt was determined to show his true colours as a defender of his own private realm of conservatism. “What proof do you have that mosques secrete caches of arms?”, he asked. Bolt was using a typical Left wing tactic where the interviewee has no chance to recover research that leads to a definitive answer. Of course mosques both here and around the world secrete arms, there is ample proof of that despite the fact police are rarely granted a warrant to search any mosque.


KIM JONG-UN versus DONALD TRUMP

... who gets a haircut?

Only now is it becoming evident just how much of a failure Obama was. He flat out refused to confront Islamic terrorism, Iranian nuclear capability or the mentally retarded, obese grub, Kim jong-Un, who threatens Japan, the US and South East Asia with crude and dangerous attempts at delivering nuclear warheads using outdated ICBM technology supplied by Iran. The pudgy little gnome has no idea that he only has weeks to live.


A MAN OF COURAGE TO FACE THE MUSIC

I was looking everywhere for Ralph Blewitt’s contact number when the phone rang. Yep, it was old Ralph. I wanted to know if the fire in his belly was still raging at the same rate it was three years ago. Surely his anger must have subsided a little. It hadn’t, except toward me for calling him a simpleton, for which I have apologised.



WHO'S BATSHIT CRAZY BARNABY?

“Ban all Muslims”, suggests Pauline Hanson and Barnaby Joyce comes out swinging with an eye only on maintaining live-cattle exports to Muslim countries. Joyce sees no harm in past and future Muslim atrocities when it comes to his socialist Nationals’ portfolio of Agriculture and Water. His only claim to fame is that he prevented the duplicitous cat who gave us Gillard returning to the seat of New England. That cat being Tony Windsor.


THE BREATHLESS AND BREASTLESS FEMINISTS ANSWER THE CALL TO COMMUNISM

The Left’s first response to a terrorist incident is, “It's more likely a domestic disturbance, or an out of control vehicular incident”. Once established that the perpetrator was screaming ‘Allahu akbar’ it’s, “Other good Muslims must not be blamed”. When these ‘other good Muslims’ refuse to condemn the perpetrators, it’s a case of, “More people die in swimming pools than from terrorism”.Then it's, “It must be a lone wolf thing”. Or, “Some poor little Muslim kid has been radicalised”. Finally, when all excuses for Islamic terrorism are exhausted it’s time to call concerned Conservatives, “Islamophobes, racists and bigots”.


SLATER & GORDON GOING DOWN WITH GILLARD?

Labor’s vilification of RC Commissioner Dyson Heydon, when hearing evidence from Shorten and ex PM Gillard, turned out to be yet another of Shorten’s misguided missiles because Heydon let the criminality of both slide through to the keeper. Now those flawed decisions may come back to haunt him via an unpretentious bloke called Ralph Blewitt.


FRIENDS AND FRAUDS AT BILL'S BASH

[Excuse me being AWOL this week as I wanted to take time out in Sydney to remember Bill.] An estimated four hundred people flocked to the upmarket Pier One Hotel in Sydney’s Rocks on Thursday evening. Tony Abbott was there tucking into a few ales with Peta Credlin, many of the opinionated SKY News team were there and even the ABC and Fairfax were represented, but free alcohol and tucker can be an irresistible attraction for some.


FLICK THE INSURANCE COMPANIES

... they are the problem, not the solution

The profusion of insurance ads flooding the airwaves illustrates the amount of money to be made by doing nothing other than collecting premiums and arguing over payouts. Ads for pets, life insurance, funerals, car and household insurance, in fact you can insure just about everything in order to have that warm glow of peaceful serenity to stave off a possible ruinous payout for an unforeseen accident... providing you have previously navigated the fine print.
