Predictably getting the Lindt Cafe siege wrong

Australia has woken to the devastating news that two hostages died in the Lindt Café last night. Like all Australians, my thoughts and prayers are with the families of those now grieving.

But I am not going to join in with the mob in perpetuating the myths that are already being circulated as a result of this completely preventable tragedy. And it was completely preventable. It was the entirely predictable outcome of the decision to allow a violent culture with a superiority complex and an itchy trigger finger to take root in Australia.

So expect to see more Islamic flags and more grieving families. This war has only just started and it’s not going well.

And here are five things the mainstream media is spinning wrong about the Islamic addition to Christmas festivities in Australia over the last 24 hours. 

1. We couldn’t see this coming

Apparently, we could never see this coming. This was ...

Parliamentary microscope hits NSW Anti-Discrimination Board

Parliamentary microscope hits NSW Anti-Discrimination Board

As this website has revealed, the New South Wales Anti-Discrimination Board has been holding consultations with the Sydney Beat Project.

These consultations discussed removing exemptions from (mostly Christian) private educational institutions that allow them to lawfully discriminate on the grounds of homosexuality.

For some reason, the Sydney Beat Project doesn’t like these laws. It probably has something to do with the fact that the Sydney Beat Project is campaigning to decriminalise sex in public. Or maybe it’s because this organisation is the peak representational body for unhappy homosexuals who get caught by police breaking the law in public toilets now.

Either way, the Sydney Beat Project seemingly thinks that (mostly Christian) private schools should be forced to hire the kind of people it represents and entrust them with the care and education of schoolchildren. And I can think of a bazillion reasons why any ...

Defeat lies at the end of the rainbow

Defeat lies at the end of the rainbow

Apparently, diversity wins wars. It is vital for capability, so we are told.

So let’s have a look at how ‘diversity’ is increasing operational effectiveness in Western militaries. And we’ll start in America, proud owner of the most operationally effective military force of them all.

As a result of diversity, the United States Army is sacking Lieutenant Colonel Christopher Downey.

Downey served his country for 24 years. He clocked up over 1,000 hours flying helicopters on three operational deployments. That is equivalent to spending almost a month and a half in a chopper fighting against the bad guys. Non stop.

And he did all right at it too. Downey was recognised with ten medals for his exceptional performance, including for taking on an enemy force in Afghanistan with superior fields of fire on 25 May 2011, in complete disregard for his own safety. His actions were decisive in saving the lives of soldiers ...

Enforcing the new normal

Enforcing the new normal

Last week this website reported that ‘men’ are now giving ‘birth’ according to Medicare.

The story was picked up by the media. Firstly by the Sunday Telegraph’s Samantha Maiden, who had the courtesy to reference this webpage. And then it was ripped off by the Daily Mail, which managed to give the very careful impression that it was not plagiarising Samantha Maiden’s entire article by adding in a flourish at the start and leaving out any mention of this website.

Given the journalistic expertise on display, it is no surprise that the Daily Mail’s story began with these nonsensical words:

“Pregnancy is something which is traditionally only applicable to women, however new statistics reveal it may be becoming more prevalent among males.”

Oh dear. Where to start?

Pregnancy is not ‘traditionally’ applicable to women. It is always and only ...

The Goodes oil on racial politics

The Goodes oil on racial politics

Adam Goodes says he doesn’t want to just be remembered as a footballer.

I’d say he’s probably going to get his wish and a lot more. Given his latest outburst claiming that Australia is a racist nation based on lies, Goodes is well on the way to making sure that he’s not remembered as a footballer at all.

And that is a pity, because that is what Goodes is actually good at. He is athletic, has great skills and can play the game very well. He’s won two premierships and has twice been recognised as the best player in the league.

But Goodes won’t be remembered for any of that. He’ll be remembered as a sook and Australia’s least favourite Australian of the Year. Let’s hope that we never have another one who is so proud of bullying a little girl into a police interrogation cell.

As I have Continue Reading →

Whatever women do, men can too (or words without meaning)

Whatever women do, men can too (or words without meaning)

Don’t laugh. It’s a serious issue.

Men are facing an unprecedented health crisis. And it appears to be contagious, spreading rapidly and is far more threatening to life as we know it than Ebola.

Men are getting pregnant.

And giving birth.

Medicare statistics show that the epicentre of this outbreak occurred in New South Wales in the 2012/2013 financial year. A male, aged between 25 and 34, is listed as receiving medical treatment for:

“Management of Labour and delivery by any means (including Caesarean section) including post-partum care for 5 days”

Considering that men don’t have the female anatomy to give birth by the normal process, I think the operative words of this procedure are ‘by any means’. The medical journals still have not defined exactly what this does mean for a man, so don’t expect me to shed any light on this issue here.

In the usual bureaucratic style, the phenomenon of male ...

The ABC and the virtue of hypocrisy

The ABC and the virtue of hypocrisy

Aren’t we lucky to have Aunty ABC.

It’s renowned for its objectivity in reporting and unbiased manner.

And that is why its approach to two similar stories is starkly different.

When Barilla Pasta hit the headlines recently for refusing to advertise its food with pictures of homosexual men and their surrogate children, the ABC report gave the gay militants a good run.

A very good run.

Online petitions in Europe were mentioned. Three of them. Plus a petition started by a lesbian in the United States named Beth Allen. She was also quoted and two ‘gay rights’ groups were given coverage.

All of these individuals and organisations were described in a ‘positive’ way, with an emphasis on their support for ‘equal rights’. There was no mention anywhere that the pro-gay militants might be displaying ‘heterophobia’.

And, of course, not one traditional family or conservative group was mentioned or given an opportunity to speak.

The story was overwhelmingly ...

NSW Anti-Discrimination Board, gay beats and private schools

NSW Anti-Discrimination Board, gay beats and private schools

It’s amazing what you find when you read the annual reports of the New South Wales Anti-Discrimination Board.

As you can see below, this taxpayer-funded organisation of the warm and fuzzy has been taking advice from the ‘Sydney Beat Project’ since at least 2008/09 about the kind of people private schools should be forced to hire as teachers. It is rather disturbing that this has occurred, since the disgusting and criminal sexual offences promoted by the Sydney Beat Project have forced councils to effectively shut down public toilet blocks.

Of course, the Sydney Beat Project does not see things this way. It claims the above sign is ‘homophobic’.

Stripping off the hypocrisy

Stripping off the hypocrisy

It seems that the soldiers at the 2nd Infantry Battalion of the Royal Australian Regiment had a bit of a shindig recently. And the waitresses got their gear off. And now it’s in the media.

The only surprise about all of this is that it is such a surprise.

Any time you put a bunch of blokes together and train them to be hard-fightin’, you’ll inevitably end up with a bunch of blokes with a propensity to be hard-livin’, hard-drinkin’ and hard partyin’ too. That’s human nature for you.

I’m not suggesting for a second that it is right. It’s not.

It’s just what happens when discipline of self and system is lacking in the military.

This has always been the conundrum for commanders: training tough and self-disciplined soldiers. This is the process by which a soldier is transformed from a blunt instrument into a useful weapon; well-balanced, razor sharp and able to discern ...

From diversity to defeat

From diversity to defeat

Soldiers have just been given a like it or lump it pay deal that sees their real wages cut and leave entitlements stripped. The blokes who send them off to war, however, have received pay increases of more than 140% the average Digger’s wage over the last two decades.

That’s pretty insulting at the best times.

But we are not living in the best of times. Our military personnel are off on the other side of the world trying to contain the Islamic State. And they’ve been off doing similar things since 2001.

And the soldiers have done their jobs well.

They haven’t lost a battle. They’ve achieved their missions. They’ve fought bravely.

But the wars have failed.

And if the wars have failed even though the soldiers have done their part, the blame must fall on the dudes who designed the strategy. That’s the dudes at the top: the politicians and the generals ...
