The Good, the Bad, and the Ugly

May 7, 2015

Most days my news wrap could be titled something like this. There is often a mixture of good and not-so-good news, although sadly the bad news seems to predominate. But here I can offer a few cheery bits to go

On the UK Elections

May 6, 2015

The general election in the UK will be held on Thursday May 7. As usual, the two main parties will be slugging it out: the Conservative Party vs the Labour Party. The Liberal Democrats have been the third main player

The Greens, Gender, and Moonbattery

Dec 2, 2014

You can count on the Greens to come up with utterly idiotic ideas, proving over and over again that these folks should never be allowed to mix with grownups, especially when it comes to running a country. Indeed, there are

Rebutting the Climate Alarmism Ideologues

Mar 1, 2014

A defining feature of contemporary Western culture is the establishment and defence of certain ideological shibboleths that dare not be gainsayed. These PC orthodoxies are enforced with all the fanaticism of any religious cult, and those who dare to resist

The Greens’ Ugly Misotheism

Jan 15, 2014

You can quickly tell where a person is at by what he gives clear priority to. The same with political parties. What they prioritise and carry on about tells you a lot about their core values. And when you have

Greens Guilty of Gross Discrimination

May 21, 2012

Shame on those intolerant, bigoted and hate-filled Greens. They are a disgrace. Instead of being open, inclusive and tolerant, they are just redneck haters who are denying lovers their dreams. How dare they exclude so many people from their basic

Bob Brown Bows Out

Apr 13, 2012

In a surprise move, the leader of the Australian Greens has said he is retiring, and will leave politics at the end of June. Brown of course created the political party and brought it into national prominence. And he is

More Mean Green Madness

Apr 7, 2012

Way back in 1982 American sociologist Robert Nisbet remarked that environmentalism has become the third great redemptive movement in human history, following Christianity and Marxism. Indeed it already has its notions of sin, guilt and redemption, its sacred texts and

Green Globalism

Mar 24, 2012

A lot of stink is made of globalisation, and how multinational corporations have extensive global reach. Well, a far scarier kind of globalisation is when governments move in this direction. No corporation will ever have the power and control of

Greens Terrorising Our Children

Jul 9, 2011

The Greens thrive on alarmist scenarios, hoping to terrorise people – even children – into giving up basic freedoms in the interests of supposedly saving planet earth. They have been doing this for decades now. Indeed, these Chicken Little activists

More Green Falsehoods and Mischief

Jul 8, 2011

It seems you can trust the Greens to play fast and loose with the truth, go soft on morality, and trifle with the facts. They are happy to do anything to push their radical agendas. Whether it is euthanasia, homosexuality,

More Green Foolishness and Hypocrisy

Jun 17, 2011

Three pieces in today’s Australian (one news item and two opinion pieces) nicely demonstrate what we are up against with the new green religion. All three show just how fuzzy the thinking can be, how cloudy the morality usually is,

More Green Fraud and Hypocrisy

May 30, 2011

It is always a bit rich when Hollywood celebs who happen to be multimillionaires start lecturing us plebs about how we need to tighten our belts for the good of the planet. The new pro-carbon tax TV ads are a

Greens: The Party of Death

Apr 28, 2011

Arguably the three most important things in the world are life, family and faith. Yet for some reason, it seems the Greens everywhere have declared war on all three. Whether it be the homosexual atheist Bob Brown in Australia, or

Another Green Brain Drain

Feb 11, 2011

Surely we have here the winner of the “Stupidest Statement of the Year” contest. While many other contenders could be mentioned, this remark has to take the prize. And the fact that it comes from a politician should surprise no

Red Blood on Green Hands

Jan 17, 2011

Concerning our recent flood crisis, there are of course some things out of human control, such as the forces of nature. But some things – like city planning, the building of dams, and so on – are in our control.

More Green Hypocrisy

Jan 8, 2011

What do you call it when a political party says one thing but does another? What do you call it when a party takes the high moral ground on an issue, only later to have been found out to be

In Praise of Incest

Dec 15, 2010

I know it can be grating to say, “I told you so”. But sometimes that is simply the case. For years now I have been telling you that once we go down the road of legalising same-sex marriage, then the
