... and this time, all the way to shore

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.


The rolling eyes of the Left and the Greens’ juvenile walkout won’t change the fact that a discussion must be held on Islam, not Muslims, Islam, and Pauline clearly made the distinction. But, as she explained, Australian Muslims must be involved to a greater extent than they have been. Parliamentarians as a whole have no concept of Islam... they have decided Islam is an untouchable religion.

Islam is most definitely not a religion, it’s a vile and ancient cult promoting a Shariah law that has no place in the West, and the sooner that is recognised the sooner it can be dealt with.

First out of the blocks to slam Hanson’s (sort of second) maiden speech was the annoying Tony Burke who reigns over the highest population of Muslims at (22.3%) of any electorate in the land. 

Burke’s attitude typifies the Left’s brick wall that prevents resolution of a serious Islamic problem the rest of the world has begun to recognise, and it's the very reason for Brexit and for the success of One Nation.

Failing to confront Islam with some serious alternatives is to degrade our otherwise successful multiculturalism.

Some pacifists believe Islam can be reformed but that’s akin to pigs taking flight. If Islam can be reformed so too can the Vatican’s “Mary, mother of God” nonsense! Seriously, what chance of that?

All religions have violent pasts but a belief in Islam is what locks you into the most violent of all cults and it is attempting to superimpose itself on modern societies. Other beliefs have evolved to meet more enlightened needs and they have dropped the beheading stuff for non-believers. 

Christianity's silly heaven or hellfire and torment still remain, but only after death and administered by a “higher” ethereal authority.

If the world was without Islam it would be a far better place but if the world was without Christianity Islam would rule and the world would be a far worse place. There is a fine balance favouring Christianity and the Islamists are determined to change that. And we have a responsibility to resist.

To demonise Pauline Hanson will be a drastic mistake. The American Left media demonised Donald Trump when he said he would ban all Muslims entering the US, yet when he backed off a little under pressure the conservative base went berserk and demanded he retain his original policy... he is now in the lead over the Democratic progressives in a tectonic shift that Islam is deservedly feeling.

The argument that Hanson promotes will be accepted by all reasonable Australians and Tony Burke would do well to listen. Her argument is this:

Our history of racial tolerance and successful multiculturalism is at serious risk from Islam. It must be confronted and made to understand that Australians will never accept what it demands. Islam is divisive by its very nature, so it’s fit in or f**k off. 

Australians don’t cover our women's faces, we don’t genitally disfigure our daughters, don’t have more than one wife, don’t like halal certified foods, don’t pay allegiance to foreign gods or prophets, we don't kill people who disagree with us, we don’t practise Shariah law and don’t allow child marriages. 

Green councils that continue to promote the building of more mosques are only exacerbating the Islam problem. Mosques are at the seat of all Islamic violence

This time around we have a seasoned, articulate and media smart Pauline with the strength of numbers that should make major Parties tremble. If they try to deny her a voice now it’s they who will be banished. She speaks for an erstwhile silent majority that is now gathering strength around the world.

Unjustified Islamic welfare is placing an enormous strain on the budget. Almost all unemployed Muslims are on fatuous disability benefits and this is unfair to our pensioners who are choosing between food and rent.

Islam will never allow assimilation, Islam will never negotiate. One reason Israel is so hated is because the Prophet himself decided to stop killing Jews and instead tax them as they were unusually industrious compared to Arabs. But now the "lesser" Jews pay no tax to Arabs.

Syria and Iraq were once steeped in Christianity and the Arabs have memories of the Crusades and worse, they have recent payback memories between Sunni and Shia. Left alone they will continue to slaughter each other. 

So if Islam can’t assimilate with itself what chance does it have in Australia where its enmities are magnified locally?

What Pauline prosecutes is largely correct and in no way racist. It must not be ignored by the progressives and the Left or it will bite us all.

This time accusations of xenophobia will not suffice or the establishment might be asked to "please explain".


Fed up with TV journalists in particular, bad mouthing Pauline Hanson, a brave honest politician trying to do something for this country, not just there for the power trip or improved personal income as so many other politicians are. Media Mouths need to do some research, not rely on their make up staff!! Pickering excepted of course.

Your time has come Pauline and I salute you. Take courage from the example Donald Trump who faces a non-stop avalanche of abuse and lies from the Zionist neocons who own Hillary Clinton and wish to strengthen their stranglehold on the US government.

Many, if not all of the violent terrorist attacks we hear about, are carried-out by Muslims who fervently believe that they re carrying-out Allah's wishes that they should kill all infidels. They believe that by doing this and dying in the process, all their sins will be automatically forgiven and that they will be eternally rewarded in paradise. Western Governments must insist that all Imams be obliged to preach to their congregations the falsehood of such idiotic beliefs. Those Imams who fail to comply with this requirement should be defrocked and banned from any preaching activities.

So why has the Imam of the Prayer Hall or Mosque where those boys have been in attendance not be taken into custody for vigorous questioning about his sermons and obvious radicalistion programs for youth..

I agree. Just watched the news, including the arrest 16 year olds for preparation to commit acts of terrorism, followed by a comment from the Justice Minister that these children are being radicalised at younger ages. Many years study of the subject shows there is nothing unusual about followers of Islam being completely brain-washed/radicalised, by the time they enter primary school. How else could they be so easily talked into strapping on explosives at such a tender age and exploding it at a location where many infidels would be likely to be killed. How else could a mother inflict such an end on one of her children and then applaud the fact that he has become a martyr. Are our politicians so ignorant, or are they deliberately lying and hoping that society is that ignorant.

Pauline is so right, why won't any politicians listen to her before it is too late.

It was great to see the Greens walk out of the senate. The problem is - they came back.

Being aboriginee is not defined by ancestry or the shade of one's skin, but by the colours of one's ever-present hatband (red, black and yellow).

Has Tony Burke any inkling what Islam is about? He must research the aims of Islam, especially where in the Quran that it says muslims are superior and the Infadel is the worst of all creatures. Allah the self confessed said in Quran 8:12 "Sahih International
[Remember] when your Lord inspired to the angels, "I am with you, so strengthen those who have believed. I will cast terror into the hearts of those who disbelieved, so strike [them] upon the necks and strike from them every fingertip." When they have finished using you Tony you had better run for the hills!

Islam, how lovely, 45 beheadings today, 2 suicide bombers in Pakistan mosques in the past few weeks, knifings of children, more israelis attacked, it will never end, I don't want it to grow in Australia. The number of mosques already here is frightening, wake up Australia

Trump's campaign very clever Les Deplorables/Delcons video on Breitbart

What a wonderful story Bruce.... it's great to see the good things happening isn't it... all power to Teddy Mac and his dear ones and thanks for sharing this one.

"And it will be that the fanatics of Islam will rise up against the countries of Europe and all will shake and quiver. Everything in the West will be destroyed; England will be conquered and thrown down to the lowest level of misery. And the fanatics and warriors of Islam will retain their power for a long time. However, not only Europe will be affected but ultimately all the countries and peoples of the Earth, as the great horror expands to a war that will encompass the entire world." Quetzal - February 28, 1987

Did I hear right? George Christensen aligning with Pauline. Ch 9 said he may be off to the cross bench with her. Or is it sensationalism by the media?

Zero ON experience is only 6 weeks less then you Bruce.

Anything to do with Trump is a good thing in my book.


They are still the wild type of animal .... why ?

It is in their genes .. and also in their epigenetic expression

It takes MANY generations of selection to domesticate a plant or animal species ..

These black bastards are still 100% feral ...

We can do nothing to change them ... nothing

Exactly Doepster .... the are still the wild type of animal

Barely a thousand of Australia’s 864,000 dole recipients were penalised for shirking work last year, as unemployment payments ballooned to an $11 billion a year.

Job brokers dobbed in 7797 dole recipients to Centrelink last year for “inadequate or poor job search’’, the Department of Social Services revealed yesterday.

However, only 1024 were punished, with 504 having their payments cut for eight weeks for “not commencing suitable work’’ and 520 penalised for “refusing a suitable job’’.

More than half a million Australians have been on the dole for more than a year.

And 355,000 recipients do not even have to look for a job, on the grounds they have more than three children in primary school, are home-schooling, temporarily ill or working or studying 30 hours a fortnight.

People on the dole can knock back a job if they are not at least $50 a fortnight better off, after paying the extra costs of working, such as public transport and clothing.

Taxpayers spent $10.9 billion on unemployment benefits last financial year, and that bill is expected to balloon to $11.8 billion by 2019-20.

The number of people receiving unemployment benefits has nearly doubled since the global financial crisis (GFC) in 2008.

Job seekers are allowed to skip job interviews or turn down work if they have a “reasonable excuse’’.

However, Human Services Minister Alan Tudge yesterday vowed to close that loophole, which in some cases lets people turn down work because they want to pursue an acting career, the factory “smelled funny’’ or the job “interfered with golf’’.

“I am concerned that the present definition of ‘reasonable excuse’ is too broad and lets some people off the hook when they should face penalties,’’ he said.

“We are continuing to look at ways to strengthen the system, because it’s in everyone’s interests that those who can work, do work.’’

Mr Tudge said the Labor Party and Greens had blocked the government’s welfare crackdown this year, but legislation would be reintroduced. The number of Australians receiving Newstart or its junior version, Youth Allowance, has soared from 464,000 in June 2008, just before the GFC, to 864,000 in July this year.

Nearly 125,000 jobless parents have been transferred from the more generous Parenting Payment to Newstart, as a result of changes by the former Labor government.
