    Julie Bishop probably next?

    Try a Lib female PM next, see how that scenario goes, they may be thinking now.

  2. Death Giraffe:

    But I was kind of bring facetious.

    Noooo!

  3. We have until now not killed murderers on sight as the first preference.

    Andre, you’ve been repeatedly told that the police shot a man who was at the time attacking uniformed officers and had just killed a man and injured two other people. He wasn’t found minutes later sipping coffee and shot. He didn’t surrender and was then killed. One of the officers shot once into the centre of mass of the attacker and that was enough to subdue him. He was not shot on sight, the officers used force sufficient two subdue in self-defense. What part of this is difficult? Also, this is not a first either. Other people have been killed in the process of being subdued. Others have survived it as well.

    They’re playing Ravel’s Bolero in Paris as part of the Armistice Day commemoration.

    Bolero? After the movie “10” I can’t associate that music with anything solemn.

  5. Armadillo

    Melbourne Cup Day was tough.

  6. Crossie

    This is an example of why the Libs must be destroyed. They are jelly backed frauds who have zero conviction.

    To misquote Gough “Well may we say God save the Queen but nothing will save the Libs”.

  7. Nelson Kidd-Players

    If you want to go cheap on a phone and can get by on 1 GB per month, Amaysim offers that for $10.00 every 28 days with unlimited calls and texts in Australia for a phone locked to Optus, while Belong (Telstra’s budget brand) does the same for a Telstra-locked phone, except its a full calendar month cycle.

  8. JC

    Brookes appears to be the real thing, but Turnbull’s kid is living off dad’s coattails. Nothing impressive about him at all. Like Holme’s a’court, he’s sniveling around looking for a subsidy.

  9. Makka

    Really. Abbott Pm’ed as a Trump like figure, did he? How may parallel universes down from this one did that occur as I’m curious.

    Try reading before you shoot from the lip, fatmouth. You should pay attention. Abbott and a host of back benchers were four square behind Dutton who scared the pants off of your favorite , Turdball. Very nearly booted him out. Then Turdball ran scared and pulled the pin on his PM ship bringing your BBQ boy, Scummo. That’s how much a threat Abbott is to the globalist arseholes you grovel over in control of the Libs.

  10. Gab

    Bolero? After the movie “10” I can’t associate that music with anything solemn.

    At least it wasn’t “Try a little kindness”!

  11. Candy

    A job might be best for the homeless fellow, if a company could take him on. Money could slip through his fingers possibly after struggling unless he is most sensible.

    Try explaining yourself properly , Doofus. The one claim to fame Abbott has is his PM’ship which he fucked up all by himself. He was a miserable failure and it wouldn’t going out on a limb to say he was worse than Turnbull. In fact miles worse.

    Furthermore, you argument is that people are frightened of Abbott. Lol, like he sacred the hell out of everyone when he was PM. Stop the idiocy and the clownship.

  13. JC

    I’d actually rate Turnbull as a more honest politician than Abbott.
    Abbott promised to kill the carbonic tax, which he did and then went right ahead and agreed to raising the RET. Abbott told us there was a budget emergency while signing onto every big spending program the Liars Party had promised but not funded. Abbott promised not to raise taxes. He and fat guts did so in the first budget. Turnbull tried to lower the corporate tax rate for both small and large enterprises and the RET was basically Abbott’s undertaking. Abbott, big time catholic that his is, promised to have a ref or plebiscite on gay marriage. These are a few of his fuck ups. I don’t understand why imbeciles like Makka have this peculiar love for Abbott. The libs are where they are because of this goose.

  14. Makka

    Furthermore, you argument is that people are frightened of Abbott. Lol, like he sacred the hell out of everyone when he was PM.

    You’re such an fkg idiot. It’s pretty transparent that you’re desperately trying to make the case that Scummo is worth a go. Just like your failed judgement had you barracking for Turdball. Dead wrong on both counts. Miserably wrong in fact. You can’t cover it up.

    Abbott’s threat now is his media presence as ex PM – radio, nightly tv news, , the papers etc. He’s still there. He is still liked by much of the disaffected Liberal base. He’s vocal. With his anti UNiparty message. He still has considerable influence among his back bench pals – you know the ones who in fact ran your boy Turdball out of town like a cur. No wonder you admire him.

    There endeth the lesson fatmouth. Next time think before you open your dumb as dogshit mouth.

    Oh no, no bloody way! Hopefully they’d be smart enough (yeah, I know, it’s a stretch) to recall she only got 10 votes (the 11th would have been her own) when she thought she’d be a shoo-in for PM in August. Also, she’s highly on the nose among thinking voters. The feminazi vote herd would no doubt fawn all over her though.

  16. JC

    Abbott did a few good things of course, like stopping the boats abortion and closing down the subsidies to the carmakers. That’s about it though. He was just as weak if not more so than Turnbull.

  17. rickw

    Wow, the ABC’s ‘acclaimed’ Pine Gap drama ended – hardly unexpectedly – in a clumsily anti American, pro – Chinese denouement, with the pantomime ‘Aussie sheila’ who is second in commend of the base giving the Yank commander a good dressing down – with all the subtly and depth of a year 11 debater – along the lines that China is the coming power and the US just has to suck it up.

    Also, the Chinese are much nicer and more empathetic to Indigenous Australians than us whiteys.

    I wonder if the Chicoms are happy with the ABC’s propaganda piece?

  18. Makka

    These are a few of his fuck ups. I don’t understand why imbeciles like Makka have this peculiar love for Abbott.

    Oh really? You have links to show this right, since the around the time he was booted. Or, is this more of your lies, fatmouth.

    You and Since were sucked in by Turdball. Just as you are being played by Scummo. You’re fkn hopeless at this.

  19. JC

    You’re such an fkg idiot. It’s pretty transparent that you’re desperately trying to make the case that Scummo is worth a go.

    Desperate and transparent? Fuck off you ridiculous clown.

    Just like your failed judgement had you barracking for Turdball. Dead wrong on both counts. Miserably wrong in fact. You can’t cover it up.

    Dickhead, he was miles better than Abbott. Abbott broke the party and now he’s pretending it wasn’t him. He destroyed it more so than Turnbull ever did. See the above, you worthless clown. Have a look at some of the reasons I gave.

    Abbott’s threat now is his media presence as ex PM – radio, nightly tv news, , the papers etc. He’s still there.

    Yea sure. Everyone lives in mortal fear of him especially because of the resolute and courageous way he handled the top job. Don’t make me fucking laugh, you clown. Stick to digging holes in the Sahara.

    He is still liked by much of the disaffected Liberal base. He’s vocal. With his anti UNiparty message.

    All bullshit, but gullible morons like you believe him. He walked away from 18C at the very first threat of an argument. He’s a dick.

    He still has considerable influence among his back bench pals – you know the ones who in fact ran your boy Turdball out of town like a cur. No wonder you admire him.

    LOl. You just write dishonest useless drivel.

    There endeth the lesson fatmouth. Next time think before you open your dumb as dogshit mouth.

    Oh stop this air you try to display. If you were that fucking good at what you do, you wouldn’t be hanging around the desert where you hate the people, hate the job and hate everything about it. You don’t scare anyone with your clownship. Stick to kinship economics. It’s all you know.

    I don’t have a subscription but I do watch recorded Tucker on YouTube even then I skip the monolog so can you post quotes of him advocating violence and hatred not imagined dog whistles thanks.

    Well the dog whistling is part of his MO, like a lot of right wing pundits. He can avoid directly advocating for violence but still support and lend his megaphone to those that do. Even though he has taken a step back from it, he is still responsible for The Daily Caller and giving a platform to David Hilton, Scott Greer, Peter Brimelow, Jason Kessler and many more fine upstanding people! DC also published an article encouraging people to run over protesters. Because of Tucker’s commentary on Fox people like W. Kamau Bell have received threats against his family. Tucker has done more to mainstream the idea of ‘white genocide’ and other BS white supremacist ideas. He has given his support to Gab to allow it to continue being a forum for organizing and recruiting for neo-Nazi groups like Atomwaffen. I could give more examples, but I suspect you really just wanted some ‘gotcha’ quote, but Tucker is too savvy for that and knows how to wear his bow ties and appeal to the mainstream

  21. Makka

    Nothing but winbaggery , fatmouth. This is the Cat. You’ll need more than that to have credibility. Fk off and come back when you have something substantial to contribute.

  22. JC

    Oh really? You have links to show this right, since the around the time he was booted. Or, is this more of your lies, fatmouth.

    I was wondering when “thems lies” accusation would make its way here. You just can’t take being wrong all the time, can you? Links to what? I don’t think I need to link to the fact that Abbott was a fucking failure as a PM. That’s evident, but it’s morons like you who want to give him another go.

    You and Since were sucked in by Turdball. Just as you are being played by Scummo. You’re fkn hopeless at this.

    Look, you dishonest, dissembling clown.. anything in my mind would be better than a Liars/Green coalition in government. If you want to go in that direction in the hope some other form of conservative movement comes along, well that’s idiotic, because it’s very unlikely to happen. As I said, stick to kinship economics.

  23. JC

    Wheewee, you’re just fucking hallucinating and still no evidence that would demonstrate Carlson’s open support for violence. Just hallucinations.

    Nope, wrong again. It’s you fathmouthing and bullshitting all the time whenever you’re caught out. To sum up, Abbott was useless, in fact more useless than Turnbull in many ways. You gullible idiot, you’re still pining for him. Just stop it.

  25. Makka

    That’s evident, but it’s morons like you who want to give him another go.

    You don’t have the link to prove this do you, Lying POS? By now you should know how much I enjoy exposing you as a big mouth liar.

    Trump will never win the canidacy!
    Trump will never be POTUS!
    Trump’s policies will bring on another Depression!
    UK would be crazy to vote Brexit, it will cause a global financial meltdown!
    Turnbull will be great PM!
    Morrison is a great choice for PM! (Now it’s: It will be all good next March) Lol.

    Fine judgement. Great calls, fatmouth.

    Oh I forgot; You say you can predict markets based on the relative local price of hamburgers.

    Fuck off, you dishonest sack of shit. You’re peddling Abbott here like he was some sort of messiah and all we’re waiting for is the second coming. As a for a link, just read back what you said about him earlier on, you dishonest douchebag. It’s what started this.

    By now you should know how much I enjoy exposing you as a big mouth liar.

    Oh yes the lying. You’re beaten to a pulp in every single encounter and the liar accusation raises it little head. You do it to everyone who takes issue with you to the point where it’s now a standing joke line.

    Lets go through your record.

    Trump would win the presidency even though it was hard at one time to distinguish between his own first policies and the one’s Bernie was peddling.
    You fucking clown.

    Fine judgement. Great calls, fatmouth.

    Thank you and absolutely no judgement by you, you clown. Fancy going for Bernie’s policies.

    Oh I forgot; You say you can predict markets based on the relative local price of hamburgers.

    I don’t but it’s certainly better than pretending you can read tea leaves in the Sahara. Is it tea leaves or charts? Same thing I suppose. 🙂

    You really are a star at predictions and forecasts, fatmouth. A real fkg star.

    Yep, it’s all I’ve done and we can compare balances any time you want. Name the bet size doofus, if you’re game. Are you? 🙂

    Unreal, a fuckwit sitting in the middle of the African desert because he can’t get a job here, is now the econ0mic, trading and political expertologist. Can happen of course, but I doubt it.

    Stop peddling Abbott, you troll. He was a terrible PM.

    No but Tucker is quite happy to advocate for the free speech rights of Gab, where the shooter was active and partly radicalised. Imagine if Hassan Shire was active on some Islamic message board and Waleed Aly was throwing around the free speech argument to defend it.

    How about this, you prick. Tell the GOP house rep who was shot and the others he missed that it was your hero, Maxine Waters who drove him to shoot Republican politicians

    I’ve got no love for Maxine. I just brought her up to point out the hypocrisy of the Tucker outrage. She should have her house picketed, she is still a politician after all, they should all be challenged. Whether she encouraged the Scalise shooter, she might have done, but I believe the shooting was before Maxine gave her “God is on our side speech” and gained any real notoriety

    Furthermore, I’d really like to know more about the charity that’s making the request? It says it’s registered. What does that mean? It says they contacted him by phone. How did they achieve this when the guy’s phone was broken. How much of the loot is he getting and is there a split arrangement?

    I don’t trust any charities. Not one. Even the Salvation Army is suspect these days.

    Rather than worry about giving the bloke money, how about giving him a job? Great opportunity for Coles or Woolies I would have thought. It was probably one of their trolleys he was using.

    Let me get this right. Tucker is advocating for Gab because he like everyone else on the right is sick of Twitter’s dishonesty and you read this to mean Carlson was supporting because he knew there was a crazed gunman on Gab and his encouragement would entice him more. Carlson was doing this without knowing there was this loon on the site.

    Wow, talk about hallucinating.

    Oh, but you believe the shooting was before she uttered those words. However, you fail to offer the same wide berth to Carlson who obviously had no knowledge of this shooter being on Gab before he shot those Innocent people. Do you apply this rule to Twitter as well, where all sorts of hateful leftoid speech occurs and plenty of leftwing loons are on there before they commit crimes.

    Well I gave money to trolleyman.

    JC an earlier newspaper mob went looking for him and found him on a park bench, that story said he was homeless, he said he saw the trolley there and started using it. It wasn’t his trolley, just one on the street. His phone, one of his few possessions had been broken in the scuffle. I guess someone gave him another.

    I’d like to keep thinking of him as a hero, not as a scammer, so I am happy I gave him money. As to the charity mob, I guess we will find out soon enough if they charge a fee, though they say he will get it all. Sometimes you just gotta trust people, even though trust got espresso man killed.

    Kind of like Twitter, but on the right, which you obviously don’t like. Twitter has been the home to ISSIS and lots of other terror groups like Antifa. But that’s okay, right? You just don’t like Gab.

    In your worthlessness you were accusing Carlson of supporting a lunatic shooter on Gab even before it happened or that he knew about.

    I enjoyed her encouraging people to hold politicians accountable, but she is still a pollie herself, and therefore part of the problem

    She demands impeachment and violence towards GOPers and their supporters. She incites violence and in a just world she should be ejected from the house and face incitement charges.

    https://www.macrobusiness.com.au/2018/11/50-million-apartments-sit-empty-china/

    Chinese President Xi Jinping’s mantra that homes should be for living in is falling on deaf ears, with tens of millions of apartments and houses standing empty across the country.

    Soon-to-be-published research will show roughly 22 percent of China’s urban housing stock is unoccupied, according to Professor Gan Li, who runs the main nationwide study. That adds up to more than 50 million empty homes, he said.

    The nightmare scenario for policy makers is that owners of unoccupied dwellings rush to sell if cracks start appearing in the property market, causing prices to spiral. The latest data, from a survey in 2017, also suggests Beijing’s efforts to curb property speculation — considered by leaders a key threat to financial and social stability — are coming up short.

    …From November 25 the bank will be using new “comprehensive credit reporting” checks by having third-party agencies check on applicants’ credit card, home, personal, or car loan debt.

    In addition, mortgage brokers will be required to provide “enhanced verification” about applicants’ income and rental expenses. This will include more details about changes to financial circumstances, including impending retirement. More details will be asked for about living expenses and any other commitments.

    Brokers will asked to look out for any signs of financial hardship, including late payments, overdrawn accounts, gambling and pay day lender transactions.

    This will smash the already failing property market, especially if other banks fall into line. This is the end for the Ponzi economy!

    Don’t believe a fucking word he says. It’s all bullshit. The other night the clown was telling us how he’s old money to impress. I was mocking him about something to do with stocks he was lying about. I asked him to tell us how much a share the BHP capital giveback was, just to see if he knows anything even as basic as that. He told us that went to his broker who had been serving the family since 1948… not the decade but the exact year. “Old money” , he reckoned. Only problem is , there are no brokerage firms left in Australia that hail that far back. He lies about everything and is a malfunctioning human being.

    Tucker Carlson:

    “On October 13, I had dinner with two of my children and some family friends at the Farmington Country Club in Charlottesville, Virginia. Toward the end of the meal, my 19-year-old daughter went to the bathroom with a friend. On their way back through the bar, a middle aged man stopped my daughter and asked if she was sitting with Tucker Carlson. My daughter had never seen the man before. She answered: ‘That’s my dad,’ and pointed to me. The man responded, ‘Are you Tucker’s whore?’ He then called her a ‘f—— c—.’

    “My daughter returned to the table in tears. She soon left the table and the club. My son, who is also a student, went into the bar to confront the man. I followed. My son asked the man if he’d called his sister a ‘whore’ and a ‘cunt.’ The man admitted he had, and again become profane. My son threw a glass of red wine in the man’s face and told him to leave the bar, which he soon did.

    “Immediately after the incident, I described these events to the management of the Farmington Country Club. The club spent more than three weeks investigating the incident. Last week, they revoked the man’s membership and threw him out of the club.

    “I love my children. It took enormous self-control not to beat the man with a chair, which is what I wanted to do. I think any father can understand the overwhelming rage and shock that I felt seeing my teenage daughter attacked by a stranger. But I restrained myself. I did not assault this man, and neither did my son. That is a lie. Nor did I know the man was gay or Latino, not that it would have mattered. What happened on October 13 has nothing to do with identity politics. It was a grotesque violation of decency. I’ve never seen anything like it in my life.”

    So when black women vote 95% for a candidate, that’s just good sense. When white women vote 71% for Cruz, that’s sectarian partisanship. Okay, dude.

    And if not sectarian partisanship then it must be voting the same way as their husbands and against their own interests.

    That link above from ‘I am Bespoke’ makes for interesting reading.

    Why.do the blacks vote overwhelmingly for liberals? Is it all about free stuff or do they really believe that the GOP are all racists? Interesting that more hispanics voted for Cruz but is race a factor at all for them, or are there more conservatives in that demographic and less looking for hand outs.

    Guardian: White Women Who Vote Republican Embrace ‘Racist Sadism’

    Trump supporters are not only deplorable, they also exhibit a “peevish, racist cruelty,” declares the Guardian newspaper Friday, which makes white women who vote Republican especially guilty.

    The 53 percent of white women who voted for Trump in 2016 bear out “the conventional wisdom that white women would rather choose the racism espoused by the Republican party than join in the moral coalition represented by men of color and other women,” writes Guardian columnist Moira Donegan in an over-the-top essay.

    Do you get the feeling that I do that lefty journos are running out of adjectives? So now they’re joining them up. Soon righties will be racist sadist misogynist torturing gestap0 kitten-hating literal Hitlers. Should make it easier for them to get to the column word count.

    A nice profile of Quillette’s founder, Claire Lehmann.

    It’s funny she gets no press locally. This quote gives us some insight why that migh be the case.

    Whether or not Lehmann was indeed blacklisted from what is arguably Australia’s most respected newspaper, which in turn led her to start her own publication, remains relevant. Cries of victimhood, or of being silenced for voicing unpopular viewpoints, are common grievances among her site’s contributors. Free-speech activists often depict themselves as embattled defenders of reason, even when they speak from positions of power. Lehmann mentioned to me that one editor in particular was determined to shut her out from the Herald and had even tried to ban her. But when I asked that editor, Sarah Oakes, who at the time led the women’s vertical Daily Life, she disputed Lehmann’s account and said she had to google the name to jog her memory. “I never thought it was a good fit,” Oakes wrote in an email. “I certainly never ‘banned’ her and in my recollection I never spoke to her directly.” (Full disclosure: I am a contributing writer to the Herald’s weekend magazine and have written for Oakes before, though not while she was at the Herald.)

    Spooky. Two of golf’s relative old timers — England’s Lee Westwood, 45, and America’s Matt Kuchar, 40 — both had their last wins on April 20, 2014. Both won on Sunday (Westwood at the European Tour event in Sun City, South Africa, and Kuchar at the US PGA Tour’s stop in Cancun, Mexico). Poor old battlers — Westwood picks up only a million Euros for the win and Kuchar $US1.2 million.

    Trump supporters are not only deplorable, they also exhibit a “peevish, racist cruelty,” declares the Guardian newspaper Friday, which makes white women who vote Republican especially guilty.

    It is the most exquisite revealing of the paucity of identity politics, is it not?

    Understanding the myriad of perspectives, beliefs, situations etc is complicated. It would require time consuming contact with real people and what post-modernists call ‘the unknowable other’. And all this investment of time would detract from the time progressives wish to devote to their real concern – flattering their own egos by imposing their own wishes on everyone else (which, of course, they want to do all the time – from what kind of milk you put in your breakfast coffee to what your company is allowed to produce and who they sell it to.)

    It used to be considered axiomatic that while you can go from a particular to a universal you can’t go the other way. But progressive wish you to believe that every white woman who voted for Cruz did so for the same reason.

    Identity politics is the simplistic ‘to the point of profound error’ tool for people who have a blind need to be gods.

    It’s worse than garbage…sometimes “garbage” can be entertaining. I haven’t tuned in to any ABC drama for decades…..even at the turn of this century the ABC was producing utter crap……dumb, contrived, patronising, PC, brain dead leftist drivel.

    Seriously though, whenever I watch Australian drama, whether it be by the ABC or the commercial networks, I am always left feeling short changed. Australian drama lacks credibility, lacks reality, lacks substance and lacks believability. A few years ago I watched “Winter” on Fox. Whilst the concept was good and the acting was okay, the writing was seriously stupid and the scenarios were completely preposterous.

    “Did you also know that Janet King is a lesbian?”

    Well of course, everything now has to have a “lesbian” theme or character. They recently remade “Picnic at Hanging Rock” into a serious on Fox. So let’s compare…

    The original movie (which I viewed again early this year after having not seen it for decades), directed by Peter Weir in 1975, suspenseful, haunting, erotic, faithful to the book, credible, beautiful and left the viewer wondering…which is what a good mystery is supposed to do. The movie actually hasn’t dated.

    The new series, made in 2017 and 2018, was unfaithful to the book, lesbianised (is that a word?), far fetched, laughable and completely contrived…it had the addition of an indigenous girl boarding at an exclusive ladies college in 1901….yeah right! I struggled through the first episode and didn’t watch the rest. It was so completely un-suspenseful and so utterly dismal. Joan Lindsay would be turning in her grave.

    A DISGRUNTLED farm worker allegedly put needles in strawberries, sparking a ­crisis that shook the nation and risked crippling growers.

    The 50-year-old woman, My Ut Trinh, known as Judy, was arrested and charged after allegedly contaminating strawberries with needles.

    Is there anything more pathetic than these over the hill ‘gangsta’ rappers like Ice Cube?

    His new one:

    Arrest the president, you got the evidence
    That nigga is Russian intelligence
    When it rains it pours
    Did you know the new white was orange?
    Boy, you’re showing your horns

    O’Shea Jackson, you are a grown man.

    Only in Melbourne is it that islamic terrorists number one fear is being attacked by a crazy homeless guy with a trolley.
    Maybe the terrorists will now rethink the wisdom of attacking in the CBD.

    Only in Melbourne…..
    Well said DG.☺

    It’s a brown woman?
    Let’s not rush to conclusions then.

    It’s increasingly difficult to tell.

    Singer Jamelia claims being able to change your gender and your race are ‘exactly the same thing’

    From the linked story:

    Jamelia has come to the defence of Anthony Ekundayo Lennon and said changing one’s race is “exactly the same” as changing gender.

    The pop star was a guest panellist on Jeremy Vine’s Channel 5 show when the discussion turned to Mr Lennon, a white theatre director who identifies as a black man.

    Mr Lennon was, according to reports, given a job designed to increase representation of ethnic minorities in the theatre, and was one of four people who shared a £406,500 Arts Council England grant, which was part of a two-year, full-time scheme for BAME (Black, Asian and minority ethnic) people.

    So if I decide to identify as an eskimo can I get £406,500 of climate money to see if penguins in the Arctic are suffering?

    Police have not found any evidence Melbourne terrorist Hassan Kalif Shire Ali was suffering from mental health issues, says one of Victoria’s top police officers.

    Reports emerged on weekend that Shire Ali had said he was being “chased by people with spears” before he drove an on-fire vehicle into Melbourne’s Bourke Street and stabbed three people on Friday.

    Victoria Police’s deputy commissioner Shane Patton said this morning that police have not detected any mental health problems from their current investigation.

    “We certainly haven’t been made aware of any mental health issues with this person from our enquiries to date,” he told ABC radio.

    “Any member of the community who has any suspicion, albeit small pieces of information, we’d urge them to ring up and provide that information.”

    Shire Ali was shot and killed by a rookie police officer on Friday. Deputy Commissioner Patton defended Victoria Police’s shoot-to-kill policy this morning, despite some commentators saying it impedes the chance to gather more information on terrorists.

    “You’ve got to eliminate the terrorist threat. It’s about stopping that attack,” he said.

    “We continue to gain evidence and intelligence when go through their houses and we interview other family members … we’ve got it right there.”

    Bourke St killer’s jihadist ties

    The Australian can today reveal Shire Ali had communicated ­online with Australia’s most ­notorious jihadist.

    As serious questions are raised about whether Hassan Khalif Shire Ali was properly monitored by security agencies, in 2014 he became an online friend of Khaled Sharrouf, who by then was a convicted terrorist on the road to international notoriety for his head-severing barbarism.

    This homelessness in the CBD is really spoiling the amenity down there.
    Why not even the jihadis aren’t safe from being accosted.

    A brown woman, unlike a white man, is entitled to “presumption of innocence”.

    Hai. But in this case that “brown” woman is actually a yellow woman.

    POH phosphgenics has just announced their strategy of standing up for themselves and fighting for their rights in a foreign court has seen the result that they have lost so completely that not only can’t they cover their legal fees, they look like having their opponents legal fees awarded against them, and the other bloke doesn’t have to give the money back.

    Comrade Maaaates.

    Indeed, both are fantasies of the unhinged.

    But but it is the most livable city!

    If you don’t mind the jihadis and the sh1t in the streets and the muggers and …

  142. Interesting how the entire media coverage I hear on the ABC this morning is all supportive of the Muslim community.

    It’s all so predictable:

    The litany of failures on the part of the authorities…

    …and now the lies from the terrorist’s family and imam:

    “He had no links to terrorism”, when in fact he was an ISIS jihadi who had communicated with Australia’s most notorious terrorist.

  145. Interesting how the entire media coverage I hear on the ABC this morning is all supportive of the Muslim community.

    Unstoppable. The ABC just keeps on coming.
    Has anyone tried blocking their path with a shopping trolley?

    Unless you buy the Herald-Sun dead tree edition and read right through to the middle of the paper, you wouldn’t know Mark Knight existed. The cartoonist with the most popular platform in the Southern Hemisphere is gun-shy after the global lunatic left went after him for drawing a ‘toon about Serena Williams’ dummy-spit tantrum at the US Open.

    He has closed all his social media accounts and the Herald Sun actually stopped updating his gallery online about a year ago.

    He’s still doing good work – but it’s unavailable online if you’re not a subscriber. Today’s is a ripper that resonates for Melburnians: a simple drawing of the one of the city’s most famous shopfronts — Pellegrini’s in Bourke Street — with the caption “Ciao Bello”, farewelling its co-owner, Sisto Malaspina, who was murdered by a moozley lunatic on Friday.

    Footnote: the difference between public interest reporting versus the appeasement of Melbourne’s two daily newspapers couldn’t be more stark this morning: the Herald-Sun‘s front page lead KICK THEM OUT as Desperate Dan (a fortnight out from a state election) backs the push by the left’s tribal enemy Peter Dutton to deport terrorists; and Pravda-on-Yarra’s “Call For UK-style hit squad” which, in the second par, has your prototype zombie leftard academic arguing that “the shoot-to-kill training given officers prevented the gathering of vital anti-terror information”.

    Pravda (and the left) couldn’t give a fuck about public safety.

    Didn’t see or hear any of that on ABCs TV Breakfast show this morning between 6 am and 8 am. But they were very supportive of “Trolley Man” and the two Police heroes.

    Understandable, but wrong.
    The mob, having the memory of a demented goldfish, moves on quickly to their next victim.
    Also, don’t reward them by going away.

    Not quite. The fellow from Pellegrini’s will be missed but nothing will allow them to think they are ever wrong, and so, they will mourn his death but welcome more and more of those that killed him.

    The only good thing being made here now is Bell Shakespeare’s performances of 400-year-old plays.

    I gave up on John Bell a long time ago. A Sydney cult. (sticks nose in Melbourne morning air and flounces off stage right).

    Didn’t some judge put on a suppression order on the name? Others, ABC?, can ignore it but Sinc needs to be careful.

    Also, the Chinese are much nicer and more empathetic to Indigenous Australians than us whiteys.

    How unsurprising. Now ask the same people what they think of the Dalai Lama and the Free Tibet movement ?

    And the Han treatment of the Uighurs in Xinjiang ??

    But the day the PLA amphibious tanks come ashore to reinforce the helicopter landed units at the Government House LZ, before pushing off down Macquarie Street – a vast coalition of activists and community groups will be lining the Domain waving rainbow flags for the liberators, before sending a delegation to the Military Command to present their long, long list of social justice demands.

    Then they will be shot.

    I, for one, am missing Mark Knight’s contributions in the on-line space. He is generally gentler than, say, Bill Leak was, but almost always hits the mark in my opinion.

    Half of his show is police press releases and Laura Norda hysteria.
    He’s the Leo Getz of Australian radio. Take him for a ride and let him turn the siren on.

    Tom,

    You keep saying this.
    I have an online account with the Hun and clicking on the cartoon on the opinion page, I can access his cartoons back to October 19.

    Thanks, Ian. My point is that you can’t access Knight’s cartoons unless you’re on the staff — or have a subscription that allows you to access the digital edition of the paper.

    So what if he chooses to live on the streets, if he has previous convictions for burglary or if there are other needy people who need help? At a time when hundreds of people stood around filming on their mobile phones and gawking, this fella stepped up and tried to do something. He may well be a flawed human being but obviously for thousands of people it doesn’t matter. Maybe this will be a catalyst for him to turn a corner and be a better man. Maybe he will give some of the money to people who he has wronged. Either way, it really doesn’t matter. He is being recognized by his fellow Aussies as an example to others of how we all hope we will respond in this situation. He took a stand. That’s why I choose to give…
