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.


WHO WAS REZA BERATI?

... a report from someone who was there

Well, he certainly wasn’t an “asylum seeker” or a “refugee”, as the ABC continually refers to him as. He was a well-heeled Iranian illegal immigrant who was beguiled by the promise of a land of milk and honey where people are actually paid not to work.


ANOTHER LABOR LAND MINE LEFT FOR ABBOTT

Only Kevin Rudd would put an angry Islamist and an angry New Guinean in the one room and expect both to walk out alive. But Labor was leaving Abbott another landmine, this time in P-NG.


GRASSBY IS DEAD...

but his insidious 18C lives on

When an “It’s Time” campaign swept the Whitlam Government to power in 1972, Australian hearts were full of hope. That hope soon turned to despair as we witnessed the rag-tag bunch of crooks, incompetents and union thugs that followed him into Parliament.


THE TERMINAL TOUCH OF McTERNAN


GUESTS OF THE UK WHO DECIDED TO STAY

Australia now has 374 mosques and in each immediate area housing values have plummeted to as low as half their former value.


CLIVE IS UP THE POINTY END

... but who with?

Neither Tony Abbott, nor anyone else for that matter, has the slightest idea how Clive Palmer will vote in the Senate, and neither does Clive. Having a discussion with him is like trying to juggle ping pong balls on a big dipper.



CHANNEL 10 NEXT FOR SKID ROW

There is one common factor in the ongoing disintegration of Australia’s media... the Left wingers are now the first to be shown the door.
