I WANT TO WAKE UP IN A CITY THAT DOESN'T SLEEP...

... but it seems Mayor de Blasio will never wake up?

Larry Pickering

Four-time Walkley Award winning political commentator and Churchill Fellow, has returned to the fray over concern that the integrity of news dissemination is continually being threatened by a partisan media.

BLOG / FACEBOOK



New York city Mayor, Democrat and dickhead, Bill de Blasio has decided that Manhattan’s West 23rd Street bomb has no obvious connection to terrorism and that it was apparently “intentional”. “Here is what we know", he said: "It was intentional, it was a violent act, it was certainly a criminal act, it was a bombing — that’s what we know.” Crumbs, he has a mind like a steel trap!

Governor Andrew M Cuomo, a fellow Democrat, said, “I believe the mayor was saying there was no connection with international terrorism, and that is correct.” Golly, the audience must have breathed sighs of relief at that conclusion... I mean if it wasn’t connected to international terrorism it must be local terrorism.

 Apparently the detonated pressure cooker was the result of a homeless person packing                                                 too much curry into his stray cat stew. 

Hillary Clinton suggested something equally innocuous. Only Donald Trump explained to the punters what it was really all about, an act of ISIS inspired terror, and of course it turns out he is dead right.

Mayor de Blasio, left, and Governor Andrew M Cuomo tour the site of the explosion.

Two other acts of terror occurred this weekend, one only two hours away is proving to be connected and another involved a frequent knife attack with some deranged Arabian fool yelling Allahu something. But again we shouldn’t jump to conclusions.

These are just the start of regular isolated terror attacks about to explode across America, right up until the Presidential election. The reason is that ISIS has always wanted to drag America into a war on its own Syrian turf. So far President Obama has politely refused and deployed only a few hundred Special Troops as has Oz.

ISIS believes America cannot win a guerilla war if the enemy is embedded within the population. It recalls the Vietnam war and is itching to repeat it and embarrass the US in the Middle East.

Terrorism in America is set to increase for two reasons:

1, ISIS is losing its caliphate dream of annexing the Levant mainly due to Putin’s involvement in supporting Bashar Assad and,

2, ISIS sees Trump as more likely to take it on militarily, and that’s exactly what ISIS has said it wants. The mealy-mouthed responses to ISIS atrocities by the Democrats has left Al Baghdadi frustrated and he believes that further acts of terrorism on American soil will ignite Trump into action as President, and not Hillary who is guided by Bill and Barack. ISIS is probably dead right!

Obama has done everything possible to further ISIS’s aim in establishing its hard line Sunni Islamic caliphate by returning high value Gitmo prisoners of war to the battle field (above). But ISIS wants a war with America and Israel... and it's prepared to die trying to achieve it.

                                 Mayor de Blasio with his mate, the disgusting Al Sharpton

The irony is that ISIS is in a position to assist Trump into the White House. It is encouraging the thousands of terrorist cells already embedded in American suburbs to rise up, make bombs, use knives, run down police with vehicles and behead children in playgrounds to get the American war machine to react.

But it won’t react under Obama or Clinton except for a few placatory suggestions that the people "be not fearful". Trump will come out with all guns blazing as any decent Churchillian President would do. And that is what is causing the voters to dump the stupid Democrats and turn to the GOP.

Oh well, good ol’ Malcolm is there in a New York subway telling the travellers to, “relax and go about your business as usual”.

Thank Christ there is about to be a clean-out of these UN compliant socialist world leaders.

Turnbull not doing Australia anyfavors.

Saddler, ever the enabler. A committed socialist. Your avatar, pick another, you're giving innocent Orangutans a bad rap.

Taking over an existing " properly registered party the second party I formed and built successfully to federal registration." Is fraught with danger, it is like buying a business and when you do you become responsible for any liabilities that the previous owner may have committed the business to fulfill. I would say it shows very great prudence not to have taken up the offer. My comment is based on my experience from early in my Real Estate career as a business broker, selling butcher shops

I guess he gave that to her AFTER I phoned her to offer my support which was the day after she was dis-endorsed. I am not surprised that his policies would match Pauline's given they are both of the right wing of politics and her policies were based on common sense, which Perry Jewell obviously had some of as well.

Bruce, Are you 81? Were you born in 1934 as it says when one Googles Bruce Rugby Whiteside, or is that incorrect? Bruce you said "All of that from a pensioner." Are you now saying that you meant that your wife did all the work,but you are claiming the glory? You say " I dug out an old computer because I could not recall when that occurred. I eventually tracked it down and it was three months before I turned 71 years old. " What happened when you were a 70 Y/o, you don't say. Did you intentionally try to deceive the PP readers if you now say that is when you went onto the pension? I am just trying to sort the grain from the straw by asking these questions and you being so open and honest should have no problem answering them .

Bruce, you say "All of that from a pensioner." Let me see,you are now 82,born in 1934. on 28th October, 1996 you chaired a meeting at the Albert Waterways Community Hall (yes I checked after saying I thought the meeting was at Miami and you picked me up on that, so I had to clarify that I had said "I think" to indicate I wasn't sure of the place). In October 1996 you were below retirement age, capable of fantastic organisation abilities, in your opinion and yet you were on a PENSION at age 62. How does an active person get onto a pension 3 years early, I am 74 and can't get the pension and because I like what I do I am still working?

YES, I took a month off work to help the Liberals when Whitlam was booted, years later I spent a month helping Earle Bailey (National) take the seat off Ian Prentice(Liberal) after he crossed he floor and voted with Labor in Queensland. Then I helped Pauline win Oxley, which I felt doubly good about because it was the only seat in Queensland held by Labor after Whitlam was booted. I felt it was like getting a spare at Ten Pin Bowling.

Saddler, we certainly had serial political grasshoppers (hopping from one party to the next) joining One Nation in the hopes of getting endorsed and /or changing the party to push their off beat ideas. It is a very difficult job for new political parties to sort the wheat from the chaff. Bruce is an example of one of those, I will leave it up you to decide.

HH,What did I say that was "muckraking" , you are defending the greatest muckraker of all times. I asked some simple questions relative to comments he made. He said "All of that from a pensioner." and I would like to know how an active, and I mean someone who thinks he is alert and capable to be an advisor to a rising political star, can be on a pension at the age of 62. I can't even get the pension, not that I want it, and I am 74. Was I not clear enough with the dates for you to understand the issue. What sort of active person goes on the pension 3 years early and how do they get approved for the pension at that age? I am just curious.

I don't care how much he drinks at least he kept the Greens or Labor from another senate seat. I do think it was unneccesary for his ex to bring it up as naturally the donor would be upset. I'm sure Derryn is fully aware of how his health is so its up to him how he leads his life.

CS. Stop the muckraking pal it closes off your argument. Destiny awaits.

Listen Stoney you sardine, your references clearly stated that and you hide behind what you think are clever edit tricks. I will back my IQ over your own anyDay JEW hater.

Boeing Shows Off the Maneuvering Capabilities of the 737 MAX


“Flown by Boeing test pilots,” states the warning at the beginning of the video. “Do not attempt.”
Oh, yeah, because taking off vertically in a Boeing 737 MAX is such a possibility for most of us.
In a video released Tuesday, the aircraft manufacturer shows off the maneuvering capabilities of the 737 MAX, a narrow body jetliner being developed to succeed the older 737s with which many of us are more familiar.
The 737 MAX will “fly farther, increase revenue and provide the lowest seat mile cost of any airplane in its class,” Boeing claims. “The airplane will open new markets and provide exceptional performance for high elevation airports and opens new opportunities for low cost carrier airlines.”

Mr Miller.


This has been around before but it's always a good reminder.

IT'S NOT WHAT YOU GATHER, BUT WHAT YOU SCATTER
I was at the corner grocery store buying some early potatoes... I noticed a small boy, delicate of bone and feature, ragged but clean, hungrily apprising a basket of freshly picked green peas.
I paid for my potatoes but was also drawn to the display of fresh green peas. I am a pushover for creamed peas and new potatoes.
Pondering the peas, I couldn't help overhearing the conversation between Mr. Miller (the store owner) and the ragged boy next to me.
'Hello Barry, how are you today?'
'H'lo, Mr. Miller. Fine, thank ya. Jus' admirin' them peas. They sure look good'
'They are good, Barry. How's your Ma?' 'Fine. Gittin' stronger alla' time.' 'Good. Anything I can help you with?' 'No, Sir. Jus' admirin' them peas.' 'Would you like to take some home?' asked Mr. Miller.
'No, Sir. Got nuthin' to pay for 'em with.'
'Well, what have you to trade me for some of those peas?'
'All I got's my prize marble here.'
'Is that right? Let me see it', said Miller.
'Here 'tis. She's a dandy.'
'I can see that. Hmm mmm, only thing is this one is blue and I sort of go for red. Do you have a red one like this at home?' the store owner asked.
'Not zackley but almost.'
'Tell you what. Take this sack of peas home with you and next trip this way let me look at that red marble'. Mr. Miller told the boy.
'Sure will. Thanks Mr. Miller.'
Mrs. Miller, who had been standing nearby, came over to help me.
With a smile she said, 'There are two other boys like him in our community, all three are in very poor circumstances. Jim just loves to bargain with them for peas, apples, tomatoes, or whatever.
When they come back with their red marbles, and they always do, he decides he doesn't like red after all and he sends them home with a bag of produce for a green marble or an orange one, when they come on their next trip to the store.'
I left the store smiling to myself, impressed with this man. A short time later I moved to Colorado , but I never forgot the story of this man, the boys, and their bartering for marbles.
Several years went by, each more rapid than the previous one. Just recently I had occasion to visit some old friends in that Idaho community and while I was there learned that Mr. Miller had died. They were having his visitation that evening and knowing my friends wanted to go, I agreed to accompany them. Upon arrival at the mortuary we fell into line to meet the relatives of the deceased and to offer whatever words of comfort we could.
Ahead of us in line were three young men. One was in an army uniform and the other two wore nice haircuts, dark suits and white shirts...all very professional looking. They approached Mrs. Miller, standing composed and smiling by her husband's casket.
Each of the young men hugged her, kissed her on the cheek, spoke briefly with her and moved on to the casket. Her misty light blue eyes followed them as, one by one; each young man stopped briefly and placed his own warm hand over the cold pale hand in the casket. Each left the mortuary awkwardly, wiping his eyes.
Our turn came to meet Mrs. Miller. I told her who I was and reminded her of the story from those many years ago and what she had told me about her husband's bartering for marbles. With her eyes glistening, she took my hand and led me to the casket.
'Those three young men who just left were the boys I told you about.
They just told me how they appreciated the things Jim 'traded' them. Now, at last, when Jim could not change his mind about color or size....they came to pay their debt.'
'We've never had a great deal of the wealth of this world,' she confided, 'but right now, Jim would consider himself the richest man in Idaho ...'
With loving gentleness she lifted the lifeless fingers of her deceased husband. Resting underneath were three exquisitely shined red marbles.
The Moral: We will not be remembered by our words, but by our kind deeds. Life is not measured by the breaths we take, but by the moments that take our breath.
Today I wish you a day of ordinary miracles ~ A fresh pot of coffee you didn't make yourself...
An unexpected phone call from an old friend.... Green stoplights on your way to work....
The fastest line at the grocery store....
A good sing-along song on the radio..
Your keys found right where you left them.
Send this to the people you'll never forget. I just did...

IT'S NOT WHAT YOU GATHER, BUT WHAT YOU SCATTER THAT TELLS WHAT KIND OF LIFE YOU HAVE LIVED!

He could sell off the plan then change the room size. Lets see how it goes down over there.

How much did he have? I don't think a glass or two of watered down wine at a Sunday BBQ is over the top. Every day having a dozen beers at the pub like many certainly would be.

Very bad polls in the morning for Mike Baird . A J and Ray will be walking on air.
