Timothy Stanley of the UK Telegraph reports that Australia has elected a Stephen Harper of their own.
Tony Abbott has won the Australian election – a blow not only to the Australian Labor Party but to Left-wingers everywhere who presumed that he was too “Neanderthal” to win. Well, us Neanderthals will be having a barbie tonight and sculling some beers to celebrate. “Good on yer, mate!”
Abbott won for two reasons. First, the Australian Labor Party is going through a long-term identity crisis. The ALP was once the party of the working man (and Sheila) but in recent years it’s succumbed to the worst aspects of factional politics, becoming a magnet for liberal pressure groups desperate for their slice of the taxpayers’ pie. The party contained plenty of factions in the past but it always managed to steer a sensible middle course between them – so while it was…

Maybe Attorney General Holder is right. Maybe America is a racist country filled with cowards who won’t be honest about the problem:
NYPD: Man Brain-Dead Following Random Rampage In Union Square
[Jeffrey] Babbitt [62 yrs old] was minding his own business as he walked through the crowd near the chess boards in Union Square when a man made a hateful announcement and began his rampage, witnesses said.
“He said ‘the next white person who walks by I’m going to [expletive],’” one woman said. “His fist went in and the man’s head bobbed and he hit the ground and you could hear his skull hitting the ground.”
Dawood Ibrahim, the international gangster and bankroller of terrorism, has been given sanctuary by Pakistan’s spy agency, the ISI, in exchange for his commitment to spend 30 percent of his income on jihadist operations.
This confession comes from Abdul Karim Tunda, a detained Lashkar-e-Taiba terrorist and Dawood associate. Tunda also disclosed three of Dawood’s addresses in Pakistan—two in Karachi and one in Islamabad, showing that Pakistan has provided cover for Dawood in the same manner that it did for Osama bin Laden.
Watch it all from India’s “Headlines Today”:
Pakistan is happy to take foreign aid money from the U.S. at the same time it accepts a share of underworld revenues to wage jihad in Kashmir and Afghanistan. Time to withhold the foreign aid, no?
Good. Just like Tamerlan Tsarnaev should have been denied public benefits after somehow coming up with enough money to travel to Russia in search of terrorist training. Not only are their foreign activities evidence that they don’t need the welfare they are receiving, but this crackdown is also a signal that Western governments are wising up to the risks of funding Al Qaeda aligned groups through social welfare.
Thanks to Gisele for sending this in from France 24:
Belgian jihadists in Syria stripped of welfare benefits

Belgian jihadists who travel to Syria to fight against President Bashar al-Assad’s troops are now being penalised by their home country’s government.
According to Belgian media reports on August 19, the…

On hundred thirteen years ago today, a major hurricane was about to hit Galveston, Texas. The massive storm surge destroyed most of the city and killed 10,000 people.
Galveston is close to my heart. I met my wife in Galveston, my father in law was nearly killed riding his bike there, and the man who introduced me to my wife died shortly thereafter of AIDS in Galveston. It was a horrible way to go, but he was thinking about other people right up to the end.
People who claim hurricanes are getting worse touch a raw nerve with me.
