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.



In a surprising move the Clinton Foundation has released the names of many of its larger donors. Clearly this is in preparation for Hillary’s run at the Presidency and designed to fend off criticism of the sources of her campaign funding. Under US law no foreign agency can fund any political movement, of course that law is continually breached.

But the big question for Australia is, WTF is an Australian Government aid agency (and now part of DFAT) doing supporting the Clinton Foundation, to the tune of up to $25 million, which in turn supports the UN’s global warming push?

The Royal House of Saud has joined AusAID in kicking in an equal amount elevating both to the “largest donor” category.

Now I don’t want to be picky but $25 million would likely keep a few thousand starving children alive for quite some time and that’s exactly what would be expected of this taxpayer-funded AusAID agency.

Under the incoming Abbott Government in 2013, AusAID was quietly merged with DFAT amid a rash of executive resignations in protest at likely cuts. The agency has since been all but abolished and maybe that’s a good thing.

Under the Gillard Government DFAT was also found guilty of extra curricular activities in funding and organising the illegal abduction to Australia of the four Italian girls who were sent home after a protracted legal battle that led to a High Court decision that they be returned.

No-one from DFAT was ever charged despite Pickering Post having named the guilty conspirators inside DFAT.

AusAID’s sort of redundant role is to now advise and support Julie Bishop and to assist in the reduction in world poverty in the most stricken areas and it has done so with measured success.

But I am still trying to get my head around an Australian Government aid agency joining Saudi Arabia in gifting up to $25 million to a foreign political entity. I know the Saudis are in the pocket of Barack Obama... but bloody AusAID in the Clintons' pocket?  


Sydney's sister city of San Fran... or is it brother city?




Hey Larry it has been over $58 million since 2009. Here is the link..

Surely you jest. Who the hell is in charge of Ausaid? This is a bloody disgrace.

Can't afford her own brooms to fly about on?

Tman, you seem to forget that the Unions are a law unto themselves. Look at the way they brazenly ran the country under Juliar and Dudd. Just wait and see the millions of dollars they will donate to Shortbrains and his crew before the next elections.

Why don't we just give all of our money away. I object to my taxes going towards this.

Iraq’s army has shot down two British planes as they were carrying weapons for the ISIL terrorists in Al-Anbar province, a senior lawmaker disclosed on Monday.

“The Iraqi Parliament’s National Security and Defense Committee has access to the photos of both planes that are British and have crashed while they were carrying weapons for the ISIL,” Head of the committee Hakem al-Zameli said, according to a Monday report of the Arabic-language information center of the Islamic Supreme Council of Iraq.

He said the Iraqi parliament has asked London for explanations in this regard.

The senior Iraqi legislator further unveiled that the government in Baghdad is receiving daily reports from people and security forces in al-Anbar province on numerous flights by the US-led coalition planes that airdrop weapons and supplies for ISIL in terrorist-held areas.

The Iraqi lawmaker further noted the cause of such western aids to the terrorist group, and explained that the US prefers a chaotic situation in Anbar Province which is near the cities of Karbala and Baghdad as it does not want the ISIL crisis to come to an end.

Earlier today, a senior Iraqi provincial official lashed out at the western countries and their regional allies for supporting Takfiri terrorists in Iraq, revealing that US and Israeli-made weapons have been discovered from the areas purged of ISIL terrorists.

“We have discovered weapons made in the US, European countries and Israel from the areas liberated from ISIL’s control in Al-Baqdadi region,” the Al-Ahad news website quoted Head of Al-Anbar Provincial Council Khalaf Tarmouz as saying.

He noted that the weapons made by the European countries and Israel were discovered from the terrorists in the Eastern parts of the city of Ramadi.

Al-Zameli had also disclosed in January that the anti-ISIL coalition’s planes have dropped weapons and foodstuff for the ISIL in Salahuddin, Al-Anbar and Diyala provinces.

Al-Zameli underlined that the coalition is the main cause of ISIL’s survival in Iraq.

“There are proofs and evidence for the US-led coalition’s military aid to ISIL terrorists through air(dropped cargoes),” he told FNA in January.

He noted that the members of his committee have already proved that the US planes have dropped advanced weaponry, including anti-aircraft weapons, for the ISIL, and that it has set up an investigation committee to probe into the matter.

“The US drops weapons for the ISIL on the excuse of not knowing about the whereabouts of the ISIL positions and it is trying to distort the reality with its allegations.

He noted that the committee had collected the data and the evidence provided by eyewitnesses, including Iraqi army officers and the popular forces, and said, “These documents are given to the investigation committee … and the necessary measures will be taken to protect the Iraqi airspace.”

Also in January, another senior Iraqi legislator reiterated that the US-led coalition is the main cause of ISIL’s survival in Iraq.

“The international coalition is only an excuse for protecting the ISIL and helping the terrorist group with equipment and weapons,” Jome Divan, who is member of the al-Sadr bloc in the Iraqi parliament, said.

He said the coalition’s support for the ISIL is now evident to everyone, and continued, “The coalition has not targeted ISIL’s main positions in Iraq.”

In late December, Iraqi Parliamentary Security and Defense Commission MP disclosed that a US plane supplied the ISIL terrorist organization with arms and ammunition in Salahuddin province.

MP Majid al-Gharawi stated that the available information pointed out that US planes are supplying ISIL organization, not only in Salahuddin province, but also other provinces, Iraq TradeLink reported.

He added that the US and the international coalition are “not serious in fighting against the ISIL organization, because they have the technological power to determine the presence of ISIL gunmen and destroy them in one month”.

Gharawi added that “the US is trying to expand the time of the war against the ISIL to get guarantees from the Iraqi government to have its bases in Mosul and Anbar provinces.”

Salahuddin security commission also disclosed that “unknown planes threw arms and ammunition to the ISIL gunmen Southeast of Tikrit city”.

Also in Late December, a senior Iraqi lawmaker raised doubts about the seriousness of the anti-ISIL coalition led by the US, and said that the terrorist group still received aids dropped by unidentified aircraft.

“The international coalition is not serious about air strikes on ISIL terrorists and is even seeking to take out the popular (voluntary) forces from the battlefield against the Takfiris so that the problem with ISIL remains unsolved in the near future,” Nahlah al-Hababi told FNA.

“The ISIL terrorists are still receiving aids from unidentified fighter jets in Iraq and Syria,” she added.

Hababi said that the coalition’s precise airstrikes are launched only in those areas where the Kurdish Pishmarga forces are present, while military strikes in other regions are not so much precise.

In late December, the US-led coalition dropped aids to the Takfiri militants in an area North of Baghdad.

Field sources in Iraq told al-Manar that the international coalition airplanes dropped aids to the terrorist militants in Balad, an area which lies in Salahuddin province North of Baghdad.

In October, a high-ranking Iranian commander also slammed the US for providing aid supplies to ISIL, adding that the US claims that the weapons were mistakenly airdropped to ISIL were untrue.

“The US and the so-called anti-ISIL coalition claim that they have launched a campaign against this terrorist and criminal group – while supplying them with weapons, food and medicine in Jalawla region (a town in Diyala Governorate, Iraq). This explicitly displays the falsity of the coalition’s and the US’ claims,” Deputy Chief of Staff of the Iranian Armed Forces Brigadier General Massoud Jazayeri said.

The US claimed that it had airdropped weapons and medical aid to Kurdish fighters confronting the ISIL in Kobani, near the Turkish border in Northern Syria.

The US Defense Department said that it had airdropped 28 bundles of weapons and supplies, but one of them did not make it into the hands of the Kurdish fighters.

Video footage later showed that some of the weapons that the US airdropped were taken by ISIL militants.

The Iranian commander insisted that the US had the necessary intelligence about ISIL’s deployment in the region and that their claims to have mistakenly airdropped weapons to them are as unlikely as they are untrue.


So when will they in turn send funds through to support our Conservative government? Who donated this obscene waste of our taxes? I do not support them. This is where democracy is fucked. We do not elect parliamentarians to decide these measures, oh we do? How can this be stopped?

Small change compared to "Global warming - Climate Change" Scam!

Bill and Hillary figured out how to finance themselves in the late 70's...Whitewater Development Corporation

You don't reveal just which party was responsible, wonder why....then again does it really matter

Nice to know that our tax dollars are being so wisely invested. BLOODY NOT!

Aid disguised bribe. It's been going on for decades. This unstoppable gravy train growing its capacity faster by the day is powered by our renewable taxes.


Billy was away at the time when Hillary gave the go ahead to rap up the Mt Carmel stand-off that didn't need to happen. (David Koresh walked to walk each day and could have been picked up peacefully) Flammable CS gas did it's work on the children twisting their little bodies into pretzel shapes before the BATF threw in incendiaries lighting up the join. The rest is history and Hillary should be drawn and quartered.

Liebor also direct taxpayers money into the coffers of union owned businesses. The Union/Liebor nexus are helping themselves to billions of taxpayer dollars and are in effect The Australian Mafia.

Its all about providing forced abortion in Africa.
