BOB THINKS IT LOOKS NICE OUT

So good ol’ Bob Hawke had a predilection for getting his gear off? Hmmm, tell us something we don’t already know. Bob always thought it looked better out after a few beers and the stories are many and quite comical, particularly those emanating from my old drinking hole, the ANU Bar at closing time, which was any time the next day.



HEAR NO EVIL

With a reputation for atrocities somewhere between Pol Pot and Idi Amin, nonagenarian and self-styled illegitimate Zimbabwean President Mugabe has been slaughtering white farmers in a sanctioned land grab and keeping his 14 million inhabitants starving and diseased while he occupies grandiose palaces... one for each day of the week.


HOW THE WEST WAS LOST

A succession of below par Western leaders has given China an unexpected, and perhaps undeserved, leg-up to geopolitical prominence that threatens a weakened USA. There has never been a more incompetent Administration than that of Barack Obama’s.


THE FLAGRANT FIBS OF GILLIAN TRIGGS

One hesitates to call the President of the Australian Human Rights Commission, Gillian Triggs, a liar but she leaves you little room to call her anything else. Her appalling display when chairing an inquiry into child detention on Christmas Island last Friday left Scott Morrison nonplussed and viewers of A-Pac Channel reaching for bricks.


BILL SHORTEN'S LAWYER


DID BILL DO IT?

I haven’t gone near the rape allegations levelled against Bill Shorten. It’s a she-said-he-said charge and had little hope of getting to a court room. One person’s word against another, without a witness, usually has no hope of passing the DPP sniff test. It would have been unfair and a waste of time to put it to trial.


NOW CHOOSE YOUR ENEMY

...because your enemy has already chosen you

Abbott’s eyes tell the story. It’s bad, it’s evil, it’s vile and abhorrent ... and it’s Islam. World leaders are slowly coming to realise what for so long they have desperately tried to deny. No longer can they refuse to accept the obvious. Islam feeds off weakness and it has grown stronger and bolder on our reluctance to face its pixelised atrocities.


PSSST, FRANK!

G.P: “Listen Frank, I’m applying to the Vatican for asylum.”



A RISE IN DENTAL COSTS?


GUESS WHICH ONE'S THE THREATENED SPECIES

Greg Hunt is fighting a losing battle over global warming and his renewable energy targets. They might be manna from heaven for hyperventilating Green warmists but these expensive targets are bullshit to Abbott and gaining less and less traction with realists. The globe is certainly not warming and, if it was, we should be over the moon about it.


KOOKS AND SPOOKS

One night in March of 1973, and unbeknown to PM Gough Whitlam, Attorney General, Senator Lionel Murphy QC, with a squad of Federal Police raided the offices of ASIO in Canberra and on St Kilda Rd, Melbourne.


PROFILE OF AN IMMIGRATION FRAUDSTER

If 120,000 illegal immigrants poured unimpeded through Australia’s airports under Rudd and Gillard, and home-grown Islamic extremists can come and go as they please on each others’ passports, then our current Islamic problem is of our own making.



"WE DEMAND TO COME AND GO", grand mufti

In a sharp response to the Government’s foreshadowed legislation on home grown terrorism, Australia’s Grand Mufti, Ibrahim Abu Mohammad, (pictured right) has demanded Muslims be allowed to travel where they wish overseas and be allowed unrestricted re-entry to Australia. He claimed this was a basic right of all Muslims. In an incredible statement he reassured Australians that, if necessary, “We will re-educate them when they return.”


ISIS COWARDS ALL PISS AND WIND

If Obama had nipped it in the bud in January the Islamic State would still be cowering under a rock somewhere in northern Syria. It claims an army of 10,000 (in Arabic that means 5,000) and that would barely make a decent crowd at an ARL match.


If I owned a magic wand


DEAR MR MARLES

I tried to find some acts of terrorism committed by those of us of Anglo-Saxon heritage. I realise you said we were also guilty of these atrocities, so I searched and searched but I could only find ones committed in an Islamic context. I'm terrible at researching. So perhaps you could help me out here with some Anglo-Saxon events because it would be good if I had a complete list and not just Islamic ones... it really does make last month's list look a bit unbalanced.
