Islam, the West, and Geert Wilders

Nov 24, 2016

Islam, Child Brides, and the West

Oct 31, 2016

We have various laws against paedophilia, child abuse, and sexual assault in the West. In the area of sexuality, children are especially protected by law – and rightly so. But increasingly all that is being ignored if not overturned as

September 11 Fifteen Years On

Sep 11, 2016

The world had one of those frozen-in time-moments 15 years ago as hijacked planes flew into the Twin Towers and elsewhere in America. The world stood still as we were all transfixed, watching our television screens as Islamic terrorists committed

Making Excuses for Sin and Evil

Aug 15, 2016

More AFL PC Madness

Aug 12, 2016

It is getting to the place where I almost need to do regular columns on the Australian Football League. It seems that on a weekly basis it is becoming more and more of a political activist body, pushing every lousy

Jihad, France and Christian Civilisation

The War on Sonia: Part of the War on the West

Jul 20, 2016

For daring to suggest that Muslim immigration policies should be looked at a bit more closely, Sonia Kruger was blasted by every leftist moonbeam in Australia – and beyond. Her sensible remarks about Islam have made her Public Enemy Number

Islam’s Long History of Targeting Europe

Jul 18, 2016

Europe has always been a major target of Islam throughout its 1400-year history. What we see taking place today with jihadist attack in major European cities, Islamic no-go zones in many European locales, and creeping sharia, etc, demonstrates the ongoing

Nice – The Islamists Have Already Won

Jul 16, 2016

There is only one thing as predictable as the regular Islamic jihadist attacks, and that is the brainless wonders in the West who defend to the death Islam and make excuses for the terrorists. It happens every time. Now with

Coup Attempt in Turkey

Jul 16, 2016

The Islamist-leaning Erdogan government in Turkey is right now in chaos, with a military coup attempt underway as I pen this piece. While the results of this coup are not yet known, I can offer a bit of background in

More Mindboggling Gosford Lunacy

Jul 2, 2016

Just when you thought things could not get any more bizarre and perverse at the Gosford Anglican Church with its hyper-leftist leader Rod Bower, it just has. This is one of the crazier – yet sadly still typical – things

Brexit: The Fallout

Jun 24, 2016

Just as soon as I finished writing my first article on the big Brexit win, it has already become dated. The repercussions just keep pouring in. Since then Prime Minister David Cameron has resigned (to take effect in October), stock

All You need Is Brains

Jun 23, 2016

Contrary to the popular Beatles song, sometimes we need far more than just love. Having some brains would be a good place to start when dealing with complex and vital issues such as national security and foreign affairs. Yet some
