Iron Lady knew right from wrong on the left

Piers Akerman – Thursday, April 11, 2013 (7:07pm)

THE uncompromising Baroness Thatcher would find it amusing that even in death she presents a dilemma for those who disagree with her.


End of the rainbow, safety does come first

Piers Akerman – Thursday, April 11, 2013 (3:39am)

It’s the end of the rainbow for Sydney City Lord Mayor Clover Moore and a clutch of activist homosexuals.
Last night, construction workers began laying asphalt over Oxford Street’s rainbow crossing to remove a rainbow painted road crossing which had been installed for the city’s annual homosexual parade.
The parade took place last month.
As with most social activist minority groups however the homosexual community wanted more than was initially agreed.
Independent MP Alex Greenwich, who represents the homosexual lobby, demanded NSW Premier Barry O’Farrell apologise to the “gay and lesbian” community.
Greenwich should have considered apologising to the general community for trying to abrogate the original agreement on the temporary instalment.
He further claimed that unidentified workers gad told him other work had been suspended to they could be diverted to remove the crossing.
The Sydney Morning Herald however spoke to one worker, who did not want to be named, who denied he had been diverted from another.
A spokesman for the Roads Minister Duncan Gay said: “It was the most appropriate time to remove the crossing.’’
Gay has said the crossing was a “horrendous” safety risk because it encouraged pedestrians to pose for photographs in the way of traffic.
Lord Mayor Clover Moore gave, as usual, a dodgy comment saying if she had been asked to remove the crossing by the state government she would have complied but said that Gay had ignored her requests for a meeting.
She said removing the crossing without warning was unnecessary. “They have been so aggressive,” she said.
Wake up Clover. You have done a number of interviews in recent weeks about the removal of the rainbow crossing.
What did you think you were talking about if you now claim you had no warning the temporary walkway was for the axe.
The crossing was painted with government approval because it was going to be temporary.
The issue was always about safety.
It was exacerbated when idiots started lying on the painted crossing which is on a major thoroughfare adjacent to one of the busiest intersections in the city and taking pictures of themselves.
But with some people, it always all about “me”.
Let’s not kid ourselves, had any one of the thrill seekers lying on the crosswalk unfortunately been accidentally run over, the finger would have been pointed firmly at the government.

This is brilliant:

Here’s a second version.



Tim Blair – Thursday, April 11, 2013 (11:50am)

Misogyny alert! The University of Queensland will no longer offer a major in gender studies, and the sisterhood is furious
Gender inequality still affects people in everyday life, from the wage disparity between men and women to LBGTI rights. UQ has been teaching Gender Studies for 41 years and it university in Queensland that does so. And one of the few remaining in Australia thats offers Gender Studies as a major. These cuts are part of a larger epidemic of universities scaling back Arts programs and limiting students choice in their education. 
Maybe the university should offer remedial English classes.

China’s leaders more open than Gillard

Andrew Bolt April 11 2013 (9:00pm)

The Gillard Government manages the Canberra media even more tightly than communist China’s regime managed its own this week:

The Gillard government has outdone China in its control of the press, keeping Australian reporters in the dark for two days about an historic pact between the two nations when Chinese state-owned media had already been given the story. In Shanghai on Monday, Julia Gillard was asked about local media reports of the development. She fobbed the reporter off. “Well what we said yesterday is we continue to work on the architecture of the relationship between our two countries.” Journalist: “They said you’ve agreed to it.” PM: I’ve understood your question and I’ve given my response.” The Australian media were finally able to report on the agreement on Tuesday night after it was officially announced by the PM. “This is a significant breakthrough and I’m very pleased to be able to announce it today,” she said.


Why is our door open to killers?

Andrew Bolt April 11 2013 (9:43am)

Excuse me, but who is minding the door to this country?
Case one:

A convicted murderer has been jailed for fatally stabbing another man during an argument over a vegetable patch.
Periklis Papadopoulos, 67, pleaded guilty to the manslaughter of Andonios Mirstopoulos, 72, in 2011.
The Victorian Supreme Court heard the two argued after Papadopoulos planted the tomatoes in Mr Mirtsopoulos’s vegetable patch at a Clayton boarding house…
“Your behaviour in using Mr Mirstopoulos’s garden bed he had prepared for his vegetables was deliberately provocative,” Justice Betty King said…
“You are a 67-year-old man who has now killed two people in two separate incidents. Both of them over what could best be described as trivial matters...”
The court was told Papadopoulos had served 16 years in a jail in Greece for the murder of his cousin during a petty argument.
Case two:
THE High Court has unanimously overturned a decision to refuse residency to a convicted killer from Indonesia, finding he was protected by the Refugee Convention because of his historical links to the Free Papua Movement.
The West Papuan man, 58 - an acclaimed artist who has fathered 14 children to four women since migrating to Australia in 1985—served a seven-year sentence for manslaughter last decade after pleading guilty to an attack on his de facto spouse in May 2000. She died in hospital four days later.
His refugee visa, issued in 1996, was cancelled on character grounds in 2003 and a subsequent push to regain his residency was in 2009 rejected by the Immigration Department, which found he was owed “no protection obligations” because of the threat he posed to the community.
The decision was upheld on appeal. However, the High Court found the broad interpretation of the Refugee Convention it articulated in a decision of 2005 had been contravened.

One a leader, the other just a woman

Andrew Bolt April 11 2013 (9:20am)

JULIA Gillard’s tribute to Margaret Thatcher tells the story - the difference between a great prime minister and just a female one.
Here is the best Gillard could say of Thatcher on hearing of her death: “As a woman I am admiring of her achievements on becoming the first woman to lead the United Kingdom.”
That’s not just pathetic and graceless; it shows why Gillard isn’t worth a buckle of a Thatcher shoe. 


In sail more people I can’t call “illegal immigrants”

Andrew Bolt April 11 2013 (9:19am)

Boat people policy
NOW that even Australia isn’t good enough for these “asylum seekers”, can we stop pretending they’re fleeing danger?
The boat that dropped into Geraldton this week blew the whistle on the farce.  


Can we hire Sri Lanka’s navy to do what ours may not?

Andrew Bolt April 11 2013 (9:16am)

Even Sri Lanka seems more concerned by Australia’s weakness than is our own government:

THE Sri Lankan navy is warning that the undetected voyage of an asylum-seeker boat that reached the mainland will encourage more people to set off on dangerous journeys because they will realise Australia’s maritime security has failed.
Sri Lanka’s navy operations commander, N. Attygalle, sounded the alarm over Australia’s border security regime as immigration authorities prepared to fly 66 Sri Lankan men, women and children who reached Geraldton on Tuesday to Christmas Island on a charter flight for processing.
“What is alarming about this is that they have passed Christmas Island, probably within 50 miles of it, and got almost within swimming distance of the Australian mainland without being detected,” Commodore Attygalle told The Australian.
“That’s bad news. That means people here will realise surveillance is not that good so they will think they can go also.”
Canberra-based Sri Lankan high commissioner Thisara Samarasinghe also weighed in, cautioning that the way the Gillard government handled the fallout from the boat’s arrival would be “critical” and “give a message to the rest of the people who are considering coming”.
An impressive effort by the Sri Lankan High Commissioner on Lateline.


Big shock. Hird allegedly takes legal drug

Andrew Bolt April 11 2013 (9:11am)

Even it the allegation is true, the injection wasn’t illegal. So what’s the scandal?

ESSENDON coach James Hird has arrived at Windy Hill for his team’s training session amid allegations that he took a drug, which players are banned from taking, during the 2012 season.

There is no suggestion that the drug is illegal or that Hird would be in breach of the Australian Sports Anti-Doping Authority (ASADA) rules if it is proved he took the drugs.
Sports scientist Stephen Dank has claimed he injected Hird with a substance banned by the World Anti-Doping Agency.
And still not a single drug test failed, not a single player charged. There’s just reputations being ruined and clubs torn apart. 


Wastrel Swan hints at years of deficits to come

Andrew Bolt April 11 2013 (8:38am)

Treasurer Wayne Swan promised so often he’d give us a surplus:

20 April 2011:
We see the surplus in 12-13 as being absolutely fundamental.
10 May 2011:

We’ll be back in the black by 2012?13, on time, as promised.
14 June 2011:

That is why we are returning the Budget to surplus in 2012-13, so that we don’t compound the inevitable price pressures that will come from the investment boom.”
8 August 2011:

The Government remains absolutely committed to delivering our return to surplus as we planned.
7 February 2012:

We’ve got our colours nailed to the mast. That’s what we’re doing. We’re producing a surplus in 2012-13. We’re determined to do that and that’s what we’re going to do.
10 March 2012:

Despite the tough global conditions, we remain determined to return the budget to surplus in 2012-13, and we will get there.
But Swan has spent so recklessly that he won’t just deliver a deficit this year - again - but now hints he might not give us a surplus for years to come, if reelected:
TONY JONES, PRESENTER: First it was no surplus this year; now the Treasurer has gone further, suggesting that the budget will be in the red for the next four years…
TOM IGGULDEN, REPORTER: ... With company profits squeezed further this year, Wayne Swan’s letting it be known company taxes are also falling.
WAYNE SWAN, TREASURER: And as a result, we’re seeing further hits to revenues and it is clear this will be felt right across the forward estimates.
David Uren tips the damage to be announced by these wastrels:
This year’s deficit will likely hit $20bn, while deficits in the region of $5bn to $10bn will stretch into the next few years.
And the problem was a government that believed record good times were here to stay - and that did not trim its spending to match the inevitable correction::
THE return to a budget surplus looked so easy in May 2010. Rocketing commodity prices would boost company taxes by nearly 50 per cent in just two years while superannuation taxes would soar by 75 per cent.
The new resource tax would soon match super as a source of revenue, delivering $9 billion to the government’s coffers by 2013-14… Iron ore prices had doubled in the first few months of 2010 on the back of China’s stimulus spending while coal prices were up 50 per cent…
With every passing budget and half-year budget update since 2010, the revenue shortfall has increased…
All of which makes this kind of promising utterly meaningless - a fraud by the bankrupt:

THE Gillard government is pressing ahead with plans for a high-speed rail network linking Melbourne and Brisbane, despite an admission that the $114 billion project would be a “monumental endeavour”.
Transport Minister Anthony Albanese will today release the second and final report into the high-speed rail, produced by eight consulting firms that claimed the project would generate positive economic benefits.


Robbing children of a man’s care

Andrew Bolt April 11 2013 (8:15am)

Great damage has been done by the fashionable push in decades pass to treat every man as a potential rapist:

CHILD abuse is being vastly over-reported in Australia, with the head of the government’s family research body identifying a wide gulf between notifications of alleged abuse and the claims being substantiated.
Australian Institute of Family Studies director Alan Hayes will today argue that with five times as many abuse allegations as confirmed cases, the nation needs to rethink its approach to child protection by avoiding “moral panic”.
While he does not minimise the significance of the harm that flows from child abuse, which he describes as extremely serious, he believes the system must be improved and that the unanticipated “spill over” of current policy is the “resistance of men to enter professions that have a close engagement with children”.
He argues that men are discouraged from working with children by a system that has become alarmist, with fear of accusations of sexual abuse being one possible reason for a decline in the proportion of men entering teaching and other child-focused professions.


Some errors are too useful for The Age to correct

Andrew Bolt April 11 2013 (7:59am)

What The Age boasts is its code:
Where a significant inaccuracy or distortion has been published, The Age should publish a correction or clarification promptly.

Here is what Age reporter Ben Butler claimed three days ago:

I informed Butler on the day that item appeared that two people each bid $25,000 to watch the filming of my show, and neither of them was Gina Rinehart.
As you can see, The Age’s false claim remains uncorrected.
I guess The Age corrects only errors it regrets. 


Obeid denies a suitcase of cash

Andrew Bolt April 11 2013 (7:54am)

What kind of state is NSW?

FORMER Labor powerbroker Eddie Obeid last night declared neither he nor his family “had given Richard Torbay a cent”, as he vehemently denied reports that the former NSW Speaker had quit parliament because of allegations Mr Obeid gave him $50,000 in a suitcase.
A Channel 7 report last night alleged that Mr Torbay confirmed he had quit in the wake of allegations coming to light that Eddie and Moses Obeid gave him $50,000 at Birkenhead Point.
Mr Obeid replied angrily last night: “I have never given him (Torbay) any money and neither have my family…
He has confirmed a meeting at his family’s Birkenhead Point offices but said no money changed hands.


Another Labor MP smears Thatcher now she’s dead

Andrew Bolt April 11 2013 (7:26am)

Labor is such class. It waits until Margaret Thatcher is dead before the foreign minister smears her as a racist, and Tasmanian Labor Minister David O’Byrne vilifies her for daring to fight to liberate British territory:
He’s the authentic voice of Labor:
Mr O’Byrne, 44, a former union leader and state president of the ALP, is seen by some observers as a leadership rival for Tasmanian Premier Lara Giddings.
O’Byrne is, of course, an idiot with not the slightest grasp of history or the waging of war. Some facts about what even the captain of the Belgrano himself denies was a “war crime”:

Since that fateful afternoon on May 2, 1982, the sinking of the Argentinian cruiser Belgrano by the British nuclear-powered submarine Conqueror has been regarded as one of the most controversial events of the Falklands War.
Many British critics of the action, which resulted in the deaths of 323 Argentinian sailors, see the sinking as a war crime.
These critics, who are invariably on the far Left, ... argue that the Belgrano represented no threat, and was actually sailing away from the 200-mile Total Exclusion Zone declared by the British around the Falkland Islands…
However, a new book reveals ... the Belgrano was indeed a fair target, not least because — it now emerges — it had been ordered to proceed into the Exclusion Zone at the time it was attacked.
In The Silent Listener, the book’s author Major David Thorp recounts how in 1984 he was ordered by Mrs Thatcher to carry out an investigation — never published — into the circumstances of the sinking.
Given access to every document related to the Belgrano, Thorp ... found an Argentinian signal intercepted by the British in which the Belgrano was ordered to rendezvous with other Argentinian warships at a location east of the islands, and well inside the Exclusion Zone…
As [Thatcher Defence Minister] John Nott later wrote: ‘I remain astonished ... that anyone should consider the momentary compass bearing of Belgrano’s passage to be of any consequence whatever. Any ship can turn in an instant.’…
‘It was absolutely not a war crime,’ said the Belgrano’s captain, Hector Bonzo, in an interview two years before his death in 2009.
‘It was an act of war, lamentably legal.’
Meanwhile, the Argentine admiral Enrique Molina Pico later admitted the location of the Belgrano outside the Exclusion Zone ‘did not mean it was withdrawn from the war’.
‘The integrated naval force had been deployed to carry out an attack on the British fleet in a co-ordinated operation with other naval groups,’ he wrote.
‘The heading away from the enemy fleet was only momentary, as the commander saw fit to wait for a more convenient time (to attack).
‘The Belgrano and the other ships were a threat and a danger to the British.’
Greater than all her critics, and here is why:

SLD: ‘OK, but it’s hard for you to show what you do in an interview, but you can stand up and you can make a little jump [in the studio] - it just shows another side.’

MT: ‘What’s the point of it?’

SLD: ‘It just shows another side of human being, you know, because everybody jumps in their own way.’

MT: ‘I’ll tell you what it shows - it shows that you want to be thought to be normal or popular. I don’t have to say that and approve it. This has been my whole life.’

SLD: ‘It’s just a gimmick, you know.’

MT: ‘Alright, no. “No, no, no”, to coin a phrase. I do not wish to lose the respect of people whose respect I’ve kept for years.’
But watch the full exchange. A great woman.

I apologise in advance for the “f” word but there is no way to adequately describe the latest Gillard immigration “initiative” as anything other than one, huge, stupid fuckup! 

Since today's previous article, “BEHIND THE TAMIL INVASION”, instances of the rort have arrived on my desk like leaves in an autumn cyclone.

As at June last year there were an estimated 60,000 people living illegally in Australia.

Those 60,000 are exclusively “overstays” and Immigration has no ability, and apparently no will, to round them up anyway.

In no way does this figure account for illegal immigrants, particularly those disappearing on “E” Bridging Visas that Labor is handing out like how-to-vote cards in a marginal seat.

Labor’s “E” Bridging Visas have been in vogue since July 13, 2012 and are used to soak up a cascading deluge of unprocessed illegal maritime arrivals they have no hope of ever processing, much less housing in detention.

The $7 billion spent on illegal arrivals so far is a drop in the bucket of the borrowed money needed to address this expanding disaster.

Labor is now subsidising the biggest immigration fraud in Australia’s history... and they seem blithely unaware of it.

Many employers, beleaguered with crippling red tape and FWA impositions, are turning to saving their businesses by illegally employing cheap labour.

And why wouldn’t they when there is a Government inducement to do so?

What is happening is this:
Corrupt foreign labour head hunters are here in Oz organising work for unprocessed, illegal, maritime immigrants who are not permitted to work.
These “workers” are in demand in the backstreets because the Government is, in effect, subsidising this illegal employment with an array of payments of up to $400 per week for each illegal worker.
The beleaguered employer is easily convinced to engage them at $400 less than the applicable wage because the “worker” is earning the appropriate wage anyway, via Government assistance. The “worker” is happy, the employer is happy and the corrupt head hunter is happy getting a percentage of every wage paid and he is now working furiously to ensure the flow continues.

As these workers aren’t registered, unemployment is certain to rise with Aussies who now can’t fairly compete for a job.

As I said in a previous article if Gillard thinks her “E” Bridging Visas are an answer to Australia’s lack of borders then she lacks the common dogfuck to even begin to deal with it. (sorry about that)

It seems that everyone else can see the problem except those nongs in this Government.

Most of the “E” Bridging Visa holders are either Afghan Army deserters or defeated Tamil Tigers fearful of being charged with war crimes and we are not legally permitted to know who they are or where they are!

And if the Government ever needs to find a few of these blokes, too late, they will be lost in the 100,000 or more they have no intention to find anyway!

This exclusive Tamil story was offered to the mainstream Press. No interest. The facts were offered to the Dept of Immigration & Citizenship. Again no interest.

The Government appears more interested in tomorrow’s new airy fairy multi billion dollar “initiative”.

Today’s “initiative” of a $114 billion high-speed North to South rail service to be completed in 25 years has already been lost in howls of laughter.

I’ve seen fewer fools in a fucking funny farm (sorry about that)... Oh crumbs, find me a stiff Scotch will you?

Change Your Thinking

It will take just 37 seconds to read this and change your thinking..

Two men, both seriously ill, occupied the same hospital room.

One man was allowed to sit up in his bed for an hour each afternoon to help drain the fluid from his lungs.

His bed was next to the room's only window.

The other man had to spend all his time flat on his back.

The men talked for hours on end.

They spoke of their wives and families, their homes, their jobs, their involvement in the military service, where they had been on vacation..

Every afternoon, when the man in the bed by the window could sit up, he would pass the time by describing to his roommate all the things he could see outside the window.

The man in the other bed began to live for those one hour periods where his world would be broadened and enlivened by all the activity and colour of the world outside.

The window overlooked a park with a lovely lake.
Ducks and swans played on the water while children sailed their model boats. Young lovers walked arm in arm amidst flowers of every colour and a fine view of the city skyline could be seen in the distance.

As the man by the window described all this in exquisite details, the man on the other side of the room would close his eyes and imagine this picturesque scene.

One warm afternoon, the man by the window described a parade passing by.

Although the other man could not hear the band - he could see it in his mind's eye as the gentleman by the window portrayed it with descriptive words.

Days, weeks and months passed.

One morning, the day nurse arrived to bring water for their baths only to find the lifeless body of the man by the window, who had died peacefully in his sleep.

She was saddened and called the hospital attendants to take the body away.

As soon as it seemed appropriate, the other man asked if he could be moved next to the window. The nurse was happy to make the switch, and after making sure he was comfortable, she left him alone.

Slowly, painfully, he propped himself up on one elbow to take his first look at the real world outside.
He strained to slowly turn to look out the window besides the bed.

It faced a blank wall.

The man asked the nurse what could have compelled his deceased roommate who had described such wonderful things outside this window.

The nurse responded that the man was blind and could not even see the wall.

She said, 'Perhaps he just wanted to encourage you.'


There is tremendous happiness in making others happy, despite our own situations.
Shared grief is half the sorrow, but happiness when shared, is doubled.
If you want to feel rich, just count all the things you have that money can't buy.
'Today is a gift, that is why it is called The Present .'

The origin of this letter is unknown, but please pass it on.

Reminds me of the PM or Obama staring out the window .. or Swan looking at the budget .. -ed


And... your father’s name?

Unforgettable John Wayne by Ronald Reagan

“I looked over the audience, realizing that there were few willing to be publicly identified as opponents of the far left. Then I saw Duke and said, “Why I believe John Wayne made the motion.” I heard his strong voice reply, “I sure as hell did!” The meeting and the radicals’ campaign was over.” ~ Ronald Reagan


Beloved, you may be in the midst of a struggle. Maybe you’ve made a mistake or missed an opportunity.

Beloved, God tells us that we will find life and health as we give our attention to His Word and keep it in the midst of our hearts. So get into God’s Word today and let His promises abide in you!
I am really distressed by the photo in this article depicting a young girl about 6 yo who has been beheaded by islamists in Syria. She was apparently daughter to a christian pastor. I can't bring her back from the dead. And If it were possible, I also can't make her forget the betrayals that had her killed. I believe she is held in the arms of the Father. He is comforting her now. I stand up against this betrayal. There is no excuse for it, although some might choose to try.

Dear Friend,
I want to report to you that True the Vote's lawsuit against the St. Lucie County, Florida election officials is proceeding well.
We are trying to learn the truth about what actually happened in the brutally close election that cost Allen West his seat in Congress.
Former Congressman West put it best when he recently said, “… you gotta explain to me how you can have a 4,000-vote change at 1 o’clock in the morning.”
And that is exactly what we are trying to find out!
However, we have one BIG problem. This lawsuit is taking much longer and costing more money than we had planned on.
This is a landmark case. Never before in American history has a private party asked to see election records in order to perform a “citizen audit” of the election returns.
Congressman West recently endorsed this lawsuit saying,
“I am glad that the American people have stood up because what we wanted to expose was a lack of integrity in the electoral process, and if we don’t have integrity in our electoral process we don’t have the consent of the governed and that’s the good thing about what True the Vote has done.”
We are going to find out why the recount in this race was such a terrible mess and make sure it never, ever happens again.
We can’t win this battle without your help.
When we first decided to file this suit, I knew it would be tough. And it is.
But our lawyers are working hard. The True the Vote staff is incredible. And I am very confident about the outcome.
My only worry is the cost.
True the Vote is a small nonprofit organization funded by ordinary citizens like you.
We don’t have a massive litigation budget. Funding this lawsuit has been a real struggle.
That’s why I am turning to you.
Thank you in advance for all your support.
