Larry Pickering

Four-time Walkley Award winning political commentator and Churchill Fellow, has returned to the fray over concern that the integrity of news dissemination is continually being threatened by a partisan media.

YOU WOULDN’T BUY A USED CAR FROM THIS MAN

...so why buy climate change?

The University of Queensland, along with a bevy of the ALP Left, was the perfect venue for guaranteed applause when President Obama promised to achieve something that he will never need to deliver.


DAMAGED GOODES

Australian of the year Adam Goodes has decided to rubbish his own country (or should I say the white inhabitants of his own country) as an invited guest to the Ol’ Dart.



WANNA SEE WHERE KEV CUTS HIMSELF?

The only bloke they neither cheered nor booed at Gough’s wake was the irrepressible Kevin07. He has been in the “best forgotten” bin for a while now but you can bid on a bit of nostalgia now that his house is up for sale... but you’ll need to do something about that bathroom.


THE GREENS LOST IN A C02 FOG

Christine Milne’s little team is doing handstands and high fiving each other over China’s announcement that it will continue to dramatically increase its CO2 emissions for the next 16 years. WTF? And they wonder why we believe in post natal abortions for Greens... well any time prior to puberty anyway?



“GAME CHANGER”... or just more nocturnal emissions

The Fairfax Left has opted for “GAME CHANGER” and is glowing in orgasmic delight that global warmth is about to be addressed globally. Unfortunately it’s simply not true. The joint announcement of CO2 reductions by China and the US is tantamount to an announcement that the two majors have resolved to do absolutely nothing but what they are doing already.


2GB RUBBISH WITH AHMED KILANI AND CHRIS SMITH

I have to own up to being the “cretin”, “amateur blogger” and “renegade” that Mr Chris Smith of 2GB and his offsider, Ian Dodd, described me as. Well, Mr Smith has demonstrated that he still doesn’t get halal and he won’t get it by reading an overnight blog of mine.


CHRIS SMITH OF 2GB IS HALAL BLINKERED

He intends giving a halal certifier the microphone tomorrow to explain how the extortion racket works. Kirralie Smith of halalchoices.com.au rang Mr Smith’s producer, Ian Dodd, to ask if she could present the alternative case. Mr Dodd called her an “idiot” and suggested that she should call in like everyone else if she had something to say.


HENDERSON GIVES MARR A SHIRTFRONT

I was tempted to use a different headline; “Shirtlifter Gets Shirtfronted” but that would have been grossly homophobic, so I will stick with that one.


HOW TO KILL OFF THE HALAL HOAX

There is a free app available that identifies companies who are paying halal fees. I have used it and it works. By scanning the bar code of any product with your phone camera it will tell you whether the manufacturer of that product is halal certified or not


HALAL FEELS THE PINCH

... as social media exposes the scam

It took a country mum by the name of Kirralie Smith of halalchoices.com.au who was disgusted by what she learnt about halal and went on a mission to eradicate it. Now the Muslim extortion racket is coming apart at the seams along with the Islamic State’s source of funds from Australia.


OBAMA FLIRTS WITH IRAN

... to Israel's horror

Ground troops will wipe out the Islamic State but what then? As long as the West fails to understand Islam's evil it will continue to fail to combat the worst of its atrocities. Shias and Sunnis are Islamic just as Catholics and Protestants are Christian and regime change in Iraq from Sunni to Shia presents exactly the same problem but from a different direction.



JACQUI TAKES THE LOW ROAD TO A HIGH IDEAL

Jacqui Lambie has shown her intellectual remoteness from the political process. If she really believes she can succeed by threatening to reject all of Abbott’s legislation unless she gets her way, then she’s due for a bolt of reality.


CRUELTY TO HORSES?

Blimey! 150,000 read the post, just on face book, and I tried to scan through 500 comments and with a rough count I would say about 65% think I’m a dickhead. That’s okay, even my wife thinks I’m a dickhead, but fair dinkum the misinformation proffered about horses is gobsmacking.


SHORTEN TO FACE FARIS QC OVER RAPE CASE

... and he's on a mission

An exclusive interview with pickeringpost.com allowed Kathy to bare her soul and display the torment she had suffered for 28 years allegedly at the hands of Bill Shorten. Now she cannot escape the image of her attacker without screaming and shaking uncontrollably.


BARACK GETS THE BOOT

... lucky it's a republic

Barack Obama, despite having already lost control of the House and now the Senate, remains as Commander in Chief of the United States military, and holds executive authority over its armed forces. He also holds the power of veto over all proposed legislation.


THE MAN WHO PROMISED SO MUCH BUT DELIVERED SO LITTLE

Gough Whitlam came up to me at a function in Balmain in 1976, he looked me in the eye and in his typical haughty voice said, “You can do whatever you like to me, but leave Margaret alone.” I felt like a naughty schoolboy as I searched in vain for an appropriate response.
