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.



The post concerning Obama’s apparent disrespect for the flag which was sent in by a contributor may have consisted of a few inaccuracies. Therefore the post has been removed and I apologise to readers.

I’M OFFENDED JULIA, WHY DIDN’T YOU ASK ME? I do really good portraits


I just got this in an email ....,
During a lull between the speeches at the recent

White House Correspondents dinner, Michelle Obama leans over to chat with Joe Biden.

"Ya know, I bought Barack a parrot for his birthday.

The bird is so smart, Barack has already taught him to pronounce over two hundred words!"

"Wow, that's pretty impressive," says Joe, "but, you do realize that he just speaks the words --he doesn't really understand what they mean."

"Oh, I know," Michelle replies, "Neither does the parrot."

Martial Law in the US of A
GOLD FRINGED FLAG stage props for Trump and Clinton speeches -
The flags displayed in State courts and courts of the United States have gold or yellow fringes. That is your WARNING that you are entering into a foreign enclave, the same as if you are stepping into a foreign embassy and you will be under the jurisdiction of that flag. The flag with the gold or yellow fringe has no constitution, no laws, and no rules of court, and is not recognized by any nation on the earth, and is foreign to you and the United States of America. more information
Martial Law Flag "Pursuant to 4 U.S.C. chapter 1, §§1, 2, & 3; Executive Order 10834, August 21, 1959; 24 F.R.6865; a military flag is a flag that resembles the regular flag of the United States, except that it has a YELLOW FRINGE border on three sides. The President of the United States designates this deviation from the regular flag, by executive order, and in his capacity as Commander-in-Chief of the military. The placing of a fringe on the national flag, the dimensions of the flag and the arrangement of the stars in the union are matters of detail not controlled by statute, but are within the discretion of the President as Commander in Chief of the Army and Navy." 34 Ops. Atty. Gen. 83.
President, Dwight David Eisenhower, by Executive Order No.10834, signed on August 21, 1959 and printed in the Federal Register at 24 F.R. 6865, pursuant to law, stated that: "A military flag is a flag that resembles the regular flag of the United States, except that it has a yellow fringe border on three sides."

Is *this one of the inaccuracies ? - *"Barack Obama said he would replace the U.S. national anthem with the song 'I'd Like to Teach the World to Sing"

Assuming the photo is genuine, it says a great deal - to me, anyway.

I don't think any of the commenters so far get your sarcasm LP. Good one. Love your satire.

You rely on snopes (the leftist funded propaganda site) to quote your reply? Breathtaking! I suggest you find the audio of Michelle leaning over to Obama at a flag raising ceremony at 9/11 and saying 'all this for a damn flag'. Oh and there's snopes putting there spin on the clip too. Inconclusive. But lip readers tell a different story.

Reality check. The Obama's footprints. They have something we call 'history' and its not good. Look at their militant university days and Obamas lifelong buddy Bill Ayers. Not sure who Bill Ayers is? Bill Ayers, a former leader of the Weather Underground, participated in bombings of the New York City police headquarters in 1970.

Barack Obama started his political career in Bill Ayers’ living room and they are still friends. Didn't your mum tell you to,beware of the company you keep???

Actual terrorist Bill Ayers protests against Trump in Chicago.

lying, their disrespect for the armed forces, Police and border security. Look at their history with race baiting, gender and class remarks and you have two very nasty evil people. Oh and I suppose those many photographed bulges in Michelle's pants and fitting dresses are just explained by snopes too? Like I said. History. For those two its been a repulsive and cringeworthy 8 years ad the world will be glad to see the back of them.

Looks like Barry is doing a Michael Jackson with his testicles .

Gee whiz, looking at the photo. them standing side by side....Hillary is a lot shorter than Obama. ; )

He's a muslim, no ifs ands or buts. End of story. The gollywog POTUS is a muslim

Obummer is probably facing Mecca.

Strewth Larry, any more articles like that and the ABC will offer you a job.

I think that as they are standing on a dais that there are troops parading in front of them, in which case it is perfectly normal to face the way they are, still doesn't excuse O'Bongos show of disrespect.

Whatever the facts, a picture says a thousand words.

If only our mainstream media would have the same standard of Ethics to Identify misinformation and Correct it. Keep up the great work.....and Thanks.:))

Apology not needed Larry ... still a good read ... anyway the odd bit of disinformation now and then lends spice

Oh well, you learn daily or you might as well give up.

That picture is a ripper, it is an article in itself.

Larry, never let the truth get in the way of a good yarn,
