SHORTEN SENDS DREYFUS IN... and he’s bowled first ball

The letter sent to Senator Brandis by Man Monis was rightly chucked in the wastepaper basket. This deranged bastard was a serial letter writer to any idiot Parliamentarian who would actually bother reading one. “Is it okay to call Usama bin Laden, lovely looking?” was one of many entreaties received by both sides of Parliament.

Dreyfus was explaining his failure as a QC by suggesting that Brandis should have passed this missive on to ASIO because the terror alert had been changed to “high”.

The reason his middle stump was sent flying is that ASIO had already officially determined that Man Monis was not a threat. But Dreyfus didn’t walk even then... he stayed to face a few more balls from a justifiably angry Julie Bishop. (Bishop represents Brandis in the House.)

It appears the Libs have Rudd to thank for making Shorten’s position as Opposition Leader impregnable. 


Sydney's sister city of San Fran... or is it brother city?




Bloody fools both of them

Jack....absolutely...we had letters from nutters day after day and usually with heaps of attatchments that made no sense, no matter how hard one tried to be kind. No Minister could ever even have the time to read what came in daily.

I see that there is a lot of lefties saying that those who go to Syria to join IS but who miss the comforts of home should be allowed to come back and face prosecution for crimes against humanity rather than having their citizenship revoked. THE BIG FLAW in that argument is that there is NO witness who would turn up in Oz to testify that the "criminal" had actually cut someone's head off or that he had also raped women and kids. If he tried, he would be dead. It's a war zone for Crissakes! What are these dopes thinking? Do they really think you can get a nice legal case going based on evidence in that environment? The obvious outcome would be that these murderers / rapists come home and then go free so that they can do the same here. Shit!!

Love you Rosa ;-) Your points are really basic English that everyone should have grasped at primary school.

Karl Marx' Satanic objective was the destruction of Christianity and the aboltion of private property and in that, the plan has just about succeeded.
"None are more hopelessly enslaved than those who falsely believe they are free." - Johann Wolfgang von Goethe
2 Corinthians 3:17
"Now the Lord is the Spirit; and where the Spirit of the Lord is, there is liberty."
"...But the abolition of God, church, marriage, and family are, in Marx’s view, subordinate to the overarching goal of Marxism, the radical leveling of society by the elimination of private property and the middle class (the “bourgeoisie”). This Marx justified by claiming that, under bourgeois capitalism, private property was already a fiction for the proletariat or working classes: You are horrified at our intending to do away with private property. But in your existing society, private property is already done away with for nine-tenths of the population; its existence for the few is solely due to its non-existence in the hands of those nine-tenths. You reproach us, therefore, with intending to do away with a form of property, the necessary condition for whose existence is the non-existence of any property for the immense majority of society. In one word, you reproach us with intending to do away with your property. Precisely so; that is just what we intend. - See more at:

I believe Jack summed up what Dreyfus was about, ( stirring up the poo) and as Brandis said in the Senate Committee Thursday night the airhead Monis was not on the ASIO hit list, which Brandis`s ex ASIO senior member off staff would have had his desk. Monis was well known for writing to ministers, and after reading the ASIO hit list his non aggressive letter would have been answered in the "we have one here" fashion.

A dud A.G. by any other name ..........

Good morning again Rinny, RINALDO how fares your day?

Just to prove that occasionally I do read your rubbish I shall honour your request not to refer to you as a Communist.

Would you then please identify from the following list just how you would prefer to be categorised?

1. If not Communist may I refer to you by the soft and cuddly misnomer of "Progressive Socialist", they are one and the same thing but I can see from social acceptance point of view you would prefer the new and trendy P S mantel

2. Is it still OK to call you anti Semite?

3. A holocaust denier?

4. Pro Muslim, with all the evil that goes with that,

6. A conspiracy theorist? You openly contend for example "man has never walked on the moon", surely then I may refer to you as a conspiracy theorist?

8. And anti Catholic. You certainly expose ( be they cut and paste statements ) blatant anti Catholic sentiments quite regularly, thus are you an anti Catholic? Or are you simply carrying out the dictates of your political masters. Perhaps in future posts you could identify those cut and pastes that are your own work and those that are passed onto you to post here?

9. You cite fiction novels to substantiate your assertions. Now that is a step too far Runny! That simply makes you a liar.

All in all from my stand point Runny, that makes you an a most detestable little grub who exists as a parasite on the body of the Regime you aspires to destroy. This then identifies you as a person with standards and aspiration that are most difficult to applaud.

A civil union Rosa.

Jack J I wrote the above IN THE KNOWLEDGE it is Senator Bandis who IS lecturing us on the vital NEED to retain and disseminate Mega Data. When in receipt of conventional data he has proved useless in preventing a preventable Muslim terrorist attack.
Spin away.

Don't you love farce? My fault I fear. Thought that you'd want what I want, sorry my dear. But where are the clowns, quick send in the clowns, Don't bother they're here!

Memo to Mark Dreyfus (the words of Stehen Sondheim).

Ahhhh..." Representative Democracy"....worth every drop of Aussie Blood spilt at Gallipoli, Kokoda, Vietnam and elsewhere.

Shorten really is the gift that keeps on giving to the LNP. Lets just hope that no one comes along like Hawke who until he was appointed head of the ALP was looking as if he would let Heydon take the fall for the poor performance of the Labor Party. Fortunately there is no Hawke on the horizon

With the freaks history and pending Court cases it was madness or slumber to ignore such a letter.
Accountability please.

Spot on Jack. Spent many months in a Ministerial Correspondence unit and the raving loonies came out every day of the week. If Dreyfus thinks this does not happen then he should check with the staff who served him when he was a Minister. He would know, just being vexatious and trying to score points. I recall one Department Head taking calls from a nutter time after time so the staff working to him would not have to try and appease this person day after day.

niels : “I have a horrible feeling that this inquiry into the Lindt Cafe tragedy will be a white wash.

I think you're right.
Already they're saying to exclude the issue of the multiple lenient bail sentences that this individual received.
The issue of Islam associated with this will be relegated as an irrelevancy by highlighting the insane actions of a mad man.
It will be a waste of taxpayers’ money and another incremental downward step of Australia’s acceptance of internal terrorism.
With all this going on, our leaders and judiciary debate when and how to diminish the sanctity of marriage, the keystone to a sound society.
Consider the legacy we will be leaving behind for the next generation.
I think I’ll drown my sorrows over a nice Flat White and Friand at some friendly café.

Howard told us to be ALERT not alarmed
Tragedy could have been averted. Its the Hillary Clinton / Benghazi coverup down under.

Distractions, distractions, distractions. Shorten is the new Chief Distractionist. Bring him back to the budget. On the other hand everyone is avoiding ISLAM the big elephant in the room re the Lindt Cafe siege and that includes JB and Co.

I have a horrible feeling that this inquiry into the Lindt Cafe tragedy will be a white wash. So far the ground is very carefully being laid to establish the Monis was nutter and that Islam had nothing to do with this.
