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.



I avoid them all, there are plenty of alternatives to thieving banks… you cannot fight them because they will use your money to ruin you legally.

Of the big four, avoid at all costs the Commonwealth and ANZ (the worst part of ANZ is the NZ bit). They are ruthless and became worse after Rudd needlessly guaranteed their profits.

Now that the slow-down in house prices is underway we will see the worst of the worst that banks can stoop to.

The farmers’ suffering during the drought has been exacerbated by the banks’ dirty system of resumption of property and house owners will suffer the same fate when prices fall to a point where banks believe their equity is at risk.       

If you have to borrow, please avoid banks, there are heaps of more moral alternatives.



What are They Plotting in Poland



I missed my credit card payment day by 1 day. Rang the Comm Bank and they were very nice and said if I payed it today they would wave all fees. I almost fainted. Got my statement this week and no interest or dishonor fees. I think this royal commission has made a forced change with softer approach!

Licenced Bank operating since 1903 and not owned by any other bank, owned by clients;

you are a mug going to westpac

The Banksters do not produce anything of value themselves, they through their purchase and monetising of promissory notes are parasiting on the nations productivity. Credit and debit accounting results in a nullity. The Banks through their creative accounting fraud turn the debit into a debt with compound interest.
GDP figures are fictional accounting -
The "government" produces nothing, yet includes in their revenue the nations calculated Gross Domestic Product.
Prof. Werner brilliantly explains how the banking system and financial sector really work.

Australia, from what I have learned is a Chapter 11 bankrupt, which means that the controlling bank allows it to continue trading.
Chapter 11 is a chapter of the United States Bankruptcy Code, which permits reorganization under the bankruptcy laws of the United States. Chapter 11 bankruptcy is available to every business, whether organized as a corporation or sole proprietorship, and to individuals, although it is most prominently used by corporate entities. In contrast, Chapter 7 governs the process of a liquidation bankruptcy (although liquidation can go under this chapter), while Chapter 13 provides a reorganization process for the majority of private individuals...............

The RBA and the ATO are owned by the owners of the corporation called "The Commonwealth of Australia", registered with the United States Securities and Exchange Commission
The Nation's Credit: Senator Richard Darcey, 1941 ( ALP, Tasmania)
".....................On one occasion I told honourable senators that the people who sent us here are under the impression that the 111 members of Parliament in Canberra comprise a national government engaged in the task of ruling Australia. I have told the people repeatedly that their assumption is entirely wrong and that Australia is governed by the associated banks.
Under the present system no government, can carry on its functions except by continuing the policy of borrowing. The only way to pay the ever-increasing interest bill is by borrowing still more. All money comes into existence through the banks in the form of a debt. That is why we are called upon to pay such tremendously high taxes to-day.
I have spent a considerable part of my life expounding my financial theories to the people, hoping that they will some day realize what a racket is being put over them under the present financial system, and that an obligation rests on the shoulders of every member of this Parliament to scrap it....................."

"We even place within you a 'guilt complex' making you afraid to criticise Jewry openly."
The cause of mankind's enslavement is that nations have allowed Cabalist bankers to create the medium of exchange (currency, credit) in the form of a debt to themselves when free governments could easily create this necessary commodity, debt-free. Success in society now depends on criminality and treason: complicity with this massive fraud and the pernicious agenda it represents.
In 1976, insider Harold Rosenthal revealed that this subversive agenda already extended to every aspect of Western life.........................."
“……..That is what I mean when I refer to corrupt governments. Any one who sacrifices the interests of the people for the benefit of profit-makers is a traitor. He is the fifth columnist of to-day-the enemy inside our gates."

RBA is a Rothchild Bank.
Debts cannot be paid, only discharged, as all money is issued as an interest bearing debt.

I have banked with the Toowoomba based Heritage Bank for over twenty years and never had any problems but then again I have never owed them any money,. The two banks mentioned by Larry financially ruined me and I never darkened their doors again.

Kwityerwingen! You enter a business arrangement, abide by it and they will too. That's been my experience. They are not charities!

One I avoid is the sperm bank.

I am debt free, except for student loans that I'll never have to pay back. Ha!

I like Bendigo Bank coz they love Muslimes!

Slightly OT, but as a pensioner I'm sure glad APIA is looking after my interests in car insurance. Wanted to slug me $925 for green slip/third party property damage but took me two minutes to find a deal at $225 cheaper (probably still being ripped off but like a zillion others can't be bothered fully researching the best deal).

All big four major banks should be boycotted, most of the minor banks as well. Best to bank with a credit union — there’s probably no better option.

However the most greedy, most manipulative, most inimical of all is the Reserve Bank. The ultimate responsibility and accountability for any central bank’s actions should be that of elected politicians. No “delegating”, shirking and attempting to absolve themselves of this.

Me personally have been avoiding The West Bank with a passion and any other shithole close by.

Westpac ,had $50,00 in there 28 years ago ,they just kept ''taking '' in the name of charges ? for WHAT ??? eventually went to zero ,damn them ,paying their CEO ridiculous amounts ,would never ''BANK'' with them again

You didn't mention the biggest rip off merchant of the lot Larry - The F##king Reserve Bank.

My experience with the NAB has been nothing but BAD they are bottom dwellers and should be avoided at all costs

Which Bank? They're all bastards.

The CBA screwed me for over $60,000 in 1986 ... In today's terms $156,000 and there's not a damn thing I can do about it, even thopugh I've tried ever since the rip off occurred.

I agree with you Larry. ANZ in particular has a very bad track record and has been accused outright by the RC of stealing customer's money. Doesn't get much worse than that. Best solution is live well within your means then you don't have to rely on them.
