"BETTER OUT THAN IN MALCOLM"

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.

BLOG / FACEBOOK



Every new national leader needs to be photographed with the Commander in Chief of the Free World, but I detected a certain lack of confidence in our Malcolm Turnbull this morning as he nervously stumbled over the meaningless, obligatory platitudes we are all used to.

Obama had this, “Gord how many more of these do I have to do” look as Malcolm desperately tried to appear the self-assured man of international political substance.

Oh well, I guess being the fifth of five different PMs in five years doesn’t fill anyone with confidence.

No, I wasn’t expecting the reciprocal ogling and “feely bum” stuff that was evident between Julia and Barry but blimey, Malcolm certainly did look a fraction out of his depth. Awkward sort of. 

But then I imagined Bill Shorten in his place and Malcolm suddenly appeared statesmanlike.

Turnbull decides content of ABC board -
.
...........ABC directors hoping to renew their positions for another term will be lucky if they are given another chance. The government and its nominations panel is looking for renewal at the board level.
.
Although his contract is not up for some time, discussion has already begun about a replacement for Spigelman, even though he has been a long-term friend of Communications Minister Malcolm Turnbull.
.
One name has struck a chord: David Thodey who impressed the government with his handling of Telstra after Sol Trujillo.
.
But he has already made it clear he is taking time out overseas for a well-earned rest and will be unable to join the board any time soon.
.
An extension for managing director Mark Scott is unlikely. He is said to have lost the confidence of his one-time supporter, Mr Turnbull.
.
Recruitment firm Egon Zehnder will embark on a worldwide search for Scott’s replacement.
.
The firm has already held meetings with the ABC executive, its board and Mr Turnbull’s office to gather information about what sort of executive each body would to see at the ABC......................

They'll both hit it off!! Obama is a closet muslim and Turncoat is a closet dhimmi

An 'Act of Parliament', wouldn't be worth the paper it's written on in times of trouble.

Jeeez, do you really believe if the proverbial hit the fan, that China would just kowtow to us and hand the port over, they would have other plans for it, just like the Japs would have if we were so stupid as to let them run it in 1939.

BK, those rights were sold off years ago

I'll take your word on it BK .
Be great if an actual reporter/journo could include this in their stories .

Otherwise they are just following the old line of Reds under the Beds or Yellow Peril .
instead of great investment / JV and YES the defence act states we can claim it back .

Seems to me that is all business .
If our government can overrule and take back control at any time of national need . Great .
Biggest concern is the security I see..

Communiques etc ..

Everything is on the table BK. The Messiah has told me so.

The curse of the modern era. People are disposable, politics is now just a good paying job, the butterfly mentality of people who can't think for themselves and hop from one opinion to another, the inability to have any memory longer that 48hours. The upcoming generations are going to learn valuable lessons when they get what they wish for. Will be too late for regrets I sadly fear.

Beats me why everyone is afraid of the Chinese. You hear comments about reds under the bed but I think I would rather that than have this country of ours taken over by Islam. Then it will be dead under the bed.

Yeah, right, I have a bridge for sale.

Committee seeks to limit legal objections to mining approvals

Thursday, 19 November 2015
Lou Caruana
THE Australian government has handed down a committee report recommending the parliament take away broad access to judicial review of mining approval decisions under the country's national environmental law.





The Queensland Resources Council called on state and federal governments to close legal loopholes that enable activists to disrupt and delay job-creating resource sector projects, while potentially leaving taxpayers to foot the legal bills.


Seven years after the Queensland government declared the $10 billion Alpha Coal Mine a “significant project”, multiple appeals by activist groups have halted the remote Queensland project by up to another nine months. This is the fourth court action by green activists to delay GVK/Hancock projects.

QRC CEO Michael Roche said the time had expired for governments to sit on their hands and allow the blatant flaunting of the legal system by the activists to disrupt and delay important projects.

“Current flaws across the legal system enable activists to repeatedly launch vexatious litigation against industry projects,” he said.

Oh yes Mr Obama - I'd love to visit you in the White house - most assuredly - thank you - yes of course - thank you for the invite - yes fantastic - definitely see you there - great stuff - thankyou again..... Lick, lick ,suck, crawl, grovel!

Barry O'Bama hasn't got much to be proud of in his achievement of being the leader of the free world that is slowly being arrested by Barry's jihadi relatives .

Cowardice in the face of the enemy is Treasonous to our countries. What is the penalty for cowardice?

Good to see the Daily Telegraph giving a right piece of their mind to Turnshit and Niggerbama, saying that our PM siding with one of the world's weakest leaders is a sign that he is not up to it when it comes to international politics. What a pathetic spectacle we present to the world when this piece of scum stands up and says he speaks for us.

Could Saudi Arabia or Qatar Be behind the Crash of the Russian Airbus?
.
.........."The Saudis on the other hand, have had every reason to lash out at the Kremlin," Expert notes. "Having begun an operation in Syria and managing to coordinate it with the Americans, Moscow did not just muddle all of Riyadh's cards in the Syrian war — it put Saudi Arabia in a desperate situation."
.
"If Russia cannot be convinced to immediately leave Assad in the lurch, Saudi Arabia is guaranteed to lose the Syrian hand and, as a consequence, will be defeated in its proxy war with Iran," Expert notes. "And it is unclear just how Riyadh's allies in the anti-Iranian struggle in the Gulf will react to such a defeat –it is unlikely that they will view it as simply an unpleasant embarrassment."
.
"If it turns out that Saudi Arabia is behind the attack on the Russian plane, Russia will have a number of options at its disposal. The first and most obvious is to begin an open military conflict with Riyadh; this is the most unreasonable option. The Americans have the Saudis' back, and are destined to support the Kingdom [in the event of war]. As a result, Moscow would not only be unable to achieve its goals, but also risk destroying a shaky compromise with Washington on Syria.".......

John McCain Admits On Fox News He’s “Intimate” with ISIS
.
Top News 18 November 2015

Lead war monger and Senator John McCain has confirmed Live On Fox News what many people had suspected, he met with ISIS in Syria and is in direct contact with them. He even goes so far as to admit that he “knows these people intimately, I talk to them all the time.” unlike Senator Rand Paul. That should have people rethinking about the US involvement in fighting ISIS in Syria.

And not a "Lawyer"either.It's him or maybe Cruz.Would have to be better than the "Hillderbeast"

THE EVIL WALEED ALY:
He tells us we cannot support the views of TA or even Pauline Hanson, or criticise the Koran, because we will be doing the work of ISIS. Aly insists we have to oppose TA's views, or we are ISIS, ... we are the terrorists.
How did this video get applauded as Civil libertarian around the world. F*** me dead, is everyone in the world an idiot ?
The Koran needs to be modernised, ISIS needs to be eradicated from history, "moderate" Muslims need to shut up, and the EVIL Waleed Aly needs to be outed for the Evil F*** he is.
Waleed should no longer indoctrinate our University youth.
And dementing old queens like Allan Jones should not defend the evil propaganda of Waleed Aly.
