July 11, 2018 by

June 19, 2018 by

Australian Politics – Former Prime Minister Tony Abbott Is So Right That He’s Wrong

April 15, 2018 by

Australian Politics – Prime Minister Turnbull Loses 28th Poll

March 5, 2018 by

Australian Politics – The Citizenship Debacle – Savva Does It Again: Even This Is Former Prime Minister Abbott’s Fault

November 9, 2017 by


By Andrew Bolt ~ Australian journalist Niki Savva is absolutely brilliant.

Climate Change Australia – Journalist Niki Savva ‘Verbals’ Former Prime Minister Tony Abbott, And Then Calls The Truth Crudely Provocative

October 13, 2017 by

Climate Change Australia – The ABC Attacks Former Prime Minister Tony Abbott: All Abuse And No Reason

October 12, 2017 by


By Andrew Bolt ~ Here in Australia, the ABC’s coverage of former Prime Minister Tony Abbott’s speech in London recently on global warming has been a disgrace.

Climate Change Australia – Journalist Paul Bongiorno, The Real Denier

October 10, 2017 by

Electrical Power Generation Australia – Blaming Former Prime Minister Tony Abbott For Turnbull’s Lack Of Electricity Policy

September 25, 2017 by

September 20, 2017 by

Electrical Power Generation Australia – Which of These Two Makes Sense? How The Liberals Seem Set To Destroy Themselves

September 15, 2017 by


By Andrew Bolt ~ Which of these two makes sense?: First, Tony Abbott: [Tony] Abbott told Sydney radio 2GB yesterday he did not want to see any subsidies for energy production, including for coal. “Let’s not subsidise any more renewables, and if we don’t subsidise any more renewables we won’t need to subsidise coal, ­because […]

Australian Politics – Abbott And Dutton In Pincer Attack On Prime Minister Turnbull

March 3, 2017 by

February 25, 2017 by

Australian Politics – Prime Minister Turnbull Blunders. Savva Blames Tony Abbott Again

December 8, 2016 by

Australian Politics – Peta Credlin Says That Australia Is Ready For A Trump, Too

November 6, 2016 by


By Andrew Bolt ~ Peta Credlin says Australia is ripe for our own Donald Trump. But who? Could Trump happen here in Australia? You bet… Trump is no master politician but he’s a canny businessman who has seen a gap in the market and ruthlessly exploited it to his own ­advantage… In the US just […]
