Another day, another Muslim massacre
A few days ago, the Coliseum in Rome was lit up red to protest the persecution of Christians. Italy’s most famous landmark was illuminated at the behest of “Aid to the Church in Need” to draw attention to the intense and enormous massacres Christians are suffering.
At the hands of Muslims. Always Muslims. Never anyone else but Muslims.
Not a day passes in Nigeria without Christians being torn to pieces, in schools, churches and homes in a horrifying and sickening demonstration of religious cleansing. [More]
What did Turnbull and Aung San Suu Kyi talk about?
It is natural for many to be cynical about anything of importance Malcolm Turnbull does, especially in a private meeting between the two. Did he simply take a few selfies or did he consider taking a load of Muslim Rohingyas, a move most beneficial to his loyal backstabbing mate Julie Bishop who does appear to be angling for a UN job post Turnbull?
Myanmar’s leader Aung San Suu Kyi is “not feeling well” and has pulled out of delivering a keynote speech in Sydney on Tuesday. Her appearance, which was being hosted by the Lowy Institute, was set to be Ms Suu Kyi’s only public speaking arrangement while in Australia for the ASEAN summit. She was also expected to take questions from the audience. The event was likely to attract protests, similar to those seen at the weekend, over the plight of Rohingya Muslims in Myanmar. Hundreds of thousands of Rohingyas are stranded in shocking conditions in Bangladesh after fleeing violence and destruction of their homes in Myanmar’s Rakhine state. [More]
UK’s Brexit ache has eased—for now
The UK and EU have agreed on a “large part” of the agreement that will lead to the “orderly withdrawal” of the UK.
Brexit negotiators Michel Barnier and David Davis said the deal on what the UK calls the implementation period was a “decisive step”. But issues still to be resolved include the Northern Ireland border. The transitional period is set to last from 29 March, 2019 to December 2020, and is intended to smooth the path to a future permanent relationship. [More]
SA: in with the new and out with the old
The ‘old’ might refer to Elon Musk’s great battery storage plans the popinJay so eagerly accepted. If Tesla’s works are consigned to the trash bin maybe Jay will reserve his seat on Elon’s one way voyage to Mars. Perhaps they might find Elon’s old electric car that is out there somewhere in outer space. Did you note that the dummy behind the wheel look very much like the popinJay?
The fate of South Australia’s deal with Elon Musk’s Tesla to supply free household batteries to 50,000 homeowners remains uncertain, following the electoral defeat of SA Labor. Former premier Jay Weatherill announced the policy in February with much fanfare, declaring it would create the world’s “largest virtual power plant”. [More]
Vladimir Ras-Putin’s amazing victory—not!
Standing democracy on its head, as Putin does, one must laugh at the charade of Russia even having elections given the outcome is all but 100% guaranteed. Putin wandered around the country whooping up citizens to get out and vote. It worked—booths after booths recorded that familiar 100%, not 99%, for Putin in most cases the only candidate. However, people seem to like him a whole lot. Now we shall endure a little man with a little man’s syndrome (see how diminutive he is beside Trump?) posturing and scarring the West with his military might. In other words, more of the same. Did you see the TV ad with a military officer with two blacks behind him to remind voters that would happen if they failed to vote Putin. The other was a poof sitting in a kitchen effeminately eating a banana, the same message—vote Putin no queers!
With no serious competitor and almost total control over the media, not even the Kremlin could suggest with a straight face this result was ever in doubt. It is staggeringly easy to poke fun at a process with so many obvious democratic deficits. The images of officials appearing to stuff ballot boxes in remote Russian regions are bizarre, not to mention the complaints from some citizens that they were forced to vote multiple times. [More]
Bishop rejects Dutton’s claim white South African farmers need visa help
Foreign minister says Australia’s humanitarian visa program will not change after South African government expressed outrage Australia’s home affairs minister, Peter Dutton, has been criticised in South Africa for saying white South African farmers need help escaping persecution. Australia will be making no special visa considerations for white South African farmers, Julie Bishop said, as she refused to back Peter Dutton’s claim the group deserved “special treatment” over alleged persecution.
The foreign minister became the latest senior government figure to dismiss one of the home affairs minister’s policy ideas, which in recent months have included limiting Australia’s migration intake and labelling white South African farmers the“sorts of migrants that we want to bring into our country”.

Nick Xylophone strikes a sour note
Pretending that sh*t happens, Nick Xenophon suffered an unexpected (in his mind) political annihilation. What else could he say but to vow a comeback, to the trough, no doubt and that will be another sour note. Saturday produced a political shake up of sorts as traditional voting changed. The only thing that did not change was the abject gall of Malcolm Turnbull who couldn’t wait to tell Australians that it was he who won SA on his energy yackings. Not that Jay Weatherill sealed his own fate from energy mismanagement. And may we remember who won the SSM for all the poofs?
Nick Xenophon — left without a seat in any parliament — will make a political comeback, but has refused to put a timeline on when he will again seek power. The former senator and one-time No Pokies MP has vowed to stick around in the interim as a mentor to his two senators, Rex Patrick and Stirling Griff, and federal lower house MP Rebekah Sharkie.

Peter Dutton is right to call a spade a spade!
It is way past time for the socially destructive Leftist PC brigade to shut to hell up and give way to common sense. Mr Dutton is taking flack for wanting to bring persecuted South African farmers to Australia. He’s racist, cry the bed-wetters. In case anyone is colour blind there are blacks and whites on earth and a multitude of shades in between, that is a fact. Colour, however, has bugger all to do with this matter. It is, or should be Australia’s right to allow entry of immigrants that are the most beneficial to society. Clearly, white SA farmers willing to work and contribute to Australian society are preferential to black thugs that terrorise suffering Australians in their homes and on the streets contributing only mayhem at taxpayers’ expense? It that constitutes racism then so be it! Jennifer Oriel writes in today’s Australian.
The South African government’s vote to expropriate land without compensating farmers has grave human rights implications. Home Affairs Minister Peter Dutton is considering how Australia can offer targeted farmers shelter from persecution by tailoring our humanitarian program. The South African government has rebuked Dutton by denying it is endangering farmers. The denial is unconvincing. [More]
There are now four million Muslims in Germany
Mad Mutti Merkel’s disastrous decision to throw open an essentially defenseless western Europe to hordes of military-age males from the Islamic ummah will go down in history as one of Christendom’s greatest blunders if not the biggest. It’s miles in front of the dopey Trojans and the Greek Horse.
Many are undecided about her stupid decision – it was either a triumph of wishful childless-feminist thinking or a titanic malevolent act. [More]
Can we hope the Greens are a spent force?
Again it will be ‘beautiful in its ugliness’ as bitter fighting for the Greens future in politics will begin, or rather has begun. The weasel Bandt will try to knock off the simpering dope Di Natale and what about the unmentioned hammer-and-sickle bearing old crone Rhiannon, where will she pop up in this delicious fray?
Richard Di Natale has blamed internal “sabotage” for the party’s failure to win the Batman byelection, as the Greens leader faces an internal backlash over the loss and disgruntled members accuse the party of “machiavellian” politics. The byelection for the inner-Melbourne seat was triggered by the resignation of Labor MP David Feeney amid the dual citizenship fiasco, but the poll quickly shifted to questions about the Adani coal mine and refugee policy.
