Terrorism in Melbourne, Again

Jan 20, 2017

By now most people know that a 26-year-old man ran down innocent men, women in children with a car in downtown Melbourne. The only thing more shocking than this is the refusal by the authorities – once again – to

A Generation of Offended Snowflakes

Jan 10, 2017

While most secular lefties today would want nothing to do with such (in their view) outdated notions as the Ten Commandments, they in fact still cling to a few moral absolutes which they insist must remain inviolate. One of them

Political Correctness is Fuelling Islamic Terrorism

Dec 23, 2016

Various Western leaders, elites and media commentators are enabling and encouraging Islamic terrorism in our lands by refusing to think honestly and realistically about Islam. They are allowing political correctness to blind them to the reality that their enemies are

Leftists Politicising Our Schools

Dec 19, 2016

That the Australian education system is a hotbed of radical leftist political ideology and propaganda should surprise no one. This of course has been happening for decades now and I have been documenting this for decades now.

For example, almost

Those Miserable Gender Bender Scrooges

Dec 17, 2016

You can always tell when we are getting close to Christmas, because the Scrooges start coming out, seeking to wreck things for everyone. And increasingly we are finding that the secular left is producing heaps of miserable Scrooges. They seem

More Gender Bender Madness

Dec 16, 2016

If you are looking for a sure-fire way to destroy a culture, the gender bender moonbeams seem to have found the perfect solution. They have declared war on just about everything: reality, biology, gender, language, reason, logic and common sense.

Wilders Convicted

Dec 10, 2016

Dutch politician Geert Wilders has just been found guilty of ‘inciting discrimination’ against Muslims. The guilty verdict was perhaps expected given how much Holland and Europe is bending over backwards to accommodate Islam. I wrote about this Dutch court case

Thank You Parliamentary Champs

Dec 7, 2016

When people stand up for what is right, often against all the odds, they deserve a whole lot of praise and credit. Such people are far and few between. Most folks prefer never to take a stand for anything, but

Rainbow Big Brother is Here

Dec 6, 2016

As more than one wit has quipped, dystopian novels like Brave New World and Nineteen Eighty-Four were not meant to be taken as instruction manuals. They were to remain in the fiction section, and not be reclassified as works

Christianity Not Allowed

Dec 2, 2016

Things are going absolutely nuts with the Christophobes in the West. They are so full of hate for any believer who dares to take his faith seriously, especially in the public arena, that they have launched an all-out war on

Islam, the West, and Geert Wilders

Nov 24, 2016

A devout Muslim does not believe in democracy. Neither does he believe in the rule of law, freedom, pluralism, religious liberty, freedom of conscience, the equality of women, the equality of non-Muslims, and so on. For these reasons alone we

Those Poor Delicate Dandelions

Nov 14, 2016

Back in 2007 Diana West wrote an important volume entitled The Death of the Grownup. In it she lamented the fact that an entire generation of adults are stuck in adolescence. They have refused to grow up, to take

Ban the Bible – And Those Who Read It

Nov 6, 2016

The Bible has often been banned or strictly censured in the past – and even in many places today. Simply think of most Communist and Muslim countries, past and present. The Word of God is always anathema to the powers

Grieving with Godly Grief

Oct 26, 2016

Do you grieve with godly grief? Does that which breaks the heart of God break your heart? Are you crushed and overwhelmed by those things which God grieves over? Do you sometimes just lie on your face before Almighty God

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

Sonia Kruger Stands Strong – Again

Aug 1, 2016

OK folks, we seem to have an emerging – although perhaps unlikely – conservative superstar on our hands. Australian television personality Sonia Kruger is at it again, and has demonstrated that she has more courage and common sense than

The Radical GayFL Strikes Again

Aug 1, 2016

Admittedly a more catchy title would have been something like ‘The GayFL and GayGE Doing Their Thing’. The Melbourne Age is the state’s most left-wing and pro-homosexual newspaper, but surprisingly I could not seem to find covered there a very
