OUR HOME-GROWN MUSLIM THREAT

There are somewhere between 360,000 and 500,000 practising Muslims in Australia. Some clerics claim a much higher figure but we can never know the exact figure because census questions of “faith” are optional and in line with our 18C restriction. The US-based Pew Research Centre has forecast an increase of 80% in the number of Australia’s Muslims by 2030.


THERE'S GOOD MONEY IN THAT VAGINA


OH, THE DEVASTATION!

Well, not exactly. Marine biologists are streaming out of our universities, high on government grants and eager to prove we are destroying our reefs. What you are actually looking at in this photo is a future sandy beach. In time, (time is something the Greens seem incapable of comprehending) waves will pulverise this dead coral into fine granules that will wash up to the shoreline to replenish a beautiful beach.


SELF HARM?

...it's just another cultural thing

We are repulsed by it, but Muslims have no problem celebrating self harm. A primitive ritual, “Ashura”, is celebrated mostly by Shia Muslims to commemorate the martyrdom of Hussein, the grandson of the Prophet Muhammad, in 680 AD.


SENATE HEATS UP OVER THE CARBON TAX

... while the climate continues to cool

Clive showed clearly this morning that he doesn’t have a handle on Parliamentary procedure, he has no concept of Standing Orders, has never read the Constitution and has very little hope of tethering his Pups to their kennels.


MULTIPLE MUSLIM MOTHERS

... it's just a numbers game

Apart from Joan of Arc, sheilas rarely donned battle gear and went to die in “holy” wars. Only the blokes suffered gruesome deaths in the name of some or other ethereal belief. It was common for armies to lose half their numbers before returning home with their tails between their legs.


The Royal Commission into Child Sexual Abuse


ANIMAL HUSBANDRY AT HOME

A major problem within stables of racehorses in training is the oestrous cycles of fillies and mares. My experience with the 60 and more horses I once had in training may sound a little verbally graphic, but if you stay with me, you will see the reason for discussing a subject that that I would not normally touch, and little is known of.


CAN I HAVE THE LAST DANCE WITH YOU?

...or how to trash the House before the new tenants arrive

Similarities between the last days of the Gillard Government and the Obama Administration are eerily similar with social experiment implosions, foreign policy meltdowns, out of control debt, dismantled borders and a quota of at least one idiotic decision per day.


IMMIGRATION IS GOOD

... it's just Islam that is bad

The nasty taste of a disastrous Islamic immigration experiment should not extend to all immigrants. We can credit good immigrants with contributing to our lifestyle, our wealth and our standing as a first-world Asian power but, as Howard said, “We will choose who comes here” and that makes today’s High Court ruling a critical high-water mark on the boat battle.


HIGH COURT SET TO RULE AGAINST MORRISON

Injunctive relief temporarily preventing Australia handing 153 Tamils back to the Sri Lankan Navy, mid-ocean, simply calls for a brief time-out for both parties to plead their cases, but there seems little doubt the High Court will find Sri Lanka as repulsive as it found Malaysia. But long term it will have no effect on Morrison’s “Sovereign Borders” policy.


A COMPREHENSIVE RC INTO CHILD SEXUAL ABUSE

... so where have all the Imams gone?

The terms of reference of the Royal Commission into Child Sexual Abuse are broad-ranging and almost without parameters. It has now turned its attention to swimming coaches after having ripped into every religious sect exposing paedophilia.

WHY THE CO-PAYMENT CAN'T BE LESS

Joe Hockey’s attempt to minimise flak from a proposed co-payment by limiting it to seven dollars will prove pointless. Around 35% of a budget for each new Government “initiative” is usurped by administration costs and that 35% component rises exponentially with a falling return.


WHAT SENT CLIVE GREY?

There is no more dangerous path to tread than to be an enemy of both major Parties... and Clive Palmer is certainly that. For the moment he has effectively become the Federal Government, as he said he would.



MALCOLM NO LONGER IN THE MIDDLE

... in fact, he is well on the outer!

‘The Australian’ reported this morning that former Liberal Party deputy leader, Neil Brown QC, and The Australian’s columnist, Janet Albrechtsen, have been appointed to the, "Independent Nominations Panel" overseeing Board positions at the ABC and SBS.


ABC, FAIRFAX DESPERATE TO BREAK MORRISON'S BOAT RECORD

Reports last week that 153 “refugees” had departed from India and were heading for Australia proved incorrect. “We know what an Indian boat looks like”, said a regular contact of Pickering Post’s. It was also reported there was a water shortage and sick children were aboard who were vomiting. These reports have since been proved false.



WHAT POINT IS THERE IN HANGING A DEAD MAN?

Judicial penalties should reflect societal values and are usually imposed in the context of the time that the crime was committed and the crimes of Rolf Harris were committed from the 60s to the early 80s.
