Ground troops will wipe out the Islamic State but what then? As long as the West fails to understand Islam's evil it will continue to fail to combat the worst of its atrocities. Shias and Sunnis are Islamic just as Catholics and Protestants are Christian and regime change in Iraq from Sunni to Shia presents exactly the same problem but from a different direction.
Jacqui Lambie has shown her intellectual remoteness from the political process. If she really believes she can succeed by threatening to reject all of Abbott’s legislation unless she gets her way, then she’s due for a bolt of reality.
Blimey! 150,000 read the post, just on face book, and I tried to scan through 500 comments and with a rough count I would say about 65% think I’m a dickhead. That’s okay, even my wife thinks I’m a dickhead, but fair dinkum the misinformation proffered about horses is gobsmacking.
An exclusive interview with pickeringpost.com allowed Kathy to bare her soul and display the torment she had suffered for 28 years allegedly at the hands of Bill Shorten. Now she cannot escape the image of her attacker without screaming and shaking uncontrollably.
Barack Obama, despite having already lost control of the House and now the Senate, remains as Commander in Chief of the United States military, and holds executive authority over its armed forces. He also holds the power of veto over all proposed legislation.
Gough Whitlam came up to me at a function in Balmain in 1976, he looked me in the eye and in his typical haughty voice said, “You can do whatever you like to me, but leave Margaret alone.” I felt like a naughty schoolboy as I searched in vain for an appropriate response.
Halal money from Australian mosques and Islamic State Councils is being laundered through a charity called Al Imdaad, and it is finding its way to the Syrian conflict.
Queensland’s Maleny Dairies has come out against the halal scammers and declared they will keep prices down and will refuse to be bullied into paying a halal tax on their product. Their stance has had overwhelming support from everyone except the regularly-out-of-touch Courier Mail.
What will it take to convince the true believers of global warming that they have been led up a garden path? A garden path paved in gold for the scammers of the UN, the IPCC and all those set for a windfall in carbon credit trading.
The Australian Government Department of the Environment, Antarctic Division, has again departed for the southern ice cap, this time to count penguins, test the sea for “acidification” and find some more evidence of global warming.
Compassion4Kurdistan, which tries to raise awareness of the Islamic State's persecution of women and children has told BBC World Service how captured Yazidi women are pleading for the coalition to bomb the brothels where they are confined as that would end their misery.
It would have been difficult to ever charge Julia Gillard over the slush fund affair but media’s comments are a mix of relief and “we told you so”... and wildly inaccurate. “Julia Gillard has been cleared of any wrongdoing!” Not so! And not so fast, fellas.
Leftist Fairfax and The Guardian in typical form suggested we, “Move along folks, there’s nothing to see here”. After all this is only another ALP mishap that needs no scrutiny, I mean it’s not as if Nova Peris might have punched a wall 35 years ago is it? And if any of you out there dare suggest black impropriety we’ll call you racists and bigots.
In the early seventies Gough Whitlam tried to take over and reform the Victorian branch of the ALP. He knew, that without breaking the union umbilical cord, Labor was nationally unelectable. He did so, temporarily, but the communist activist thugs returned with new faces in the BLF running roughshod over the State’s construction industry. Eventually it became the most notorious union in the country under the guise of an expanded and renamed CFMEU.
