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.


It’s easy to dismiss the Rudd/Turnbull altercation over an endorsement for a UN Secretary General post as just another intra party squabble but it is prescient of a forthcoming internal move to cleanse the Party of Turnbullites. And even the stick insect is now having doubts about having knifed Abbott.

There is no doubt that Turnbull had at some stage told Uncle Kevin he could expect the Government’s endorsement. Uncle Kevin had then commenced a whirlwind international tour to inform UN member nations that he had the Government’s endorsement and that he needed their vote when the time came to choose him over the other 11 candidates. 

Kev actually had done the right thing and established that he had his own nation’s endorsement prior to seeking any others. That is required protocol and not even Kev is that silly.

Imagine Uncle Kev’s anger, after all that diplomatic work (at taxpayers’ expense of course) when Turnbull publicly said Kev was “not suitable” and that he would not endorse him.

After Kev let fly with some more unintelligible Mandarin, (something to do with Turnbull making love to a rat) he started plotting his revenge. And he had some very arable ground on which to work. The Libs were already fractured and they would not allow Turnbull to embarrass the nation by endorsing a flawed character like Rudd. 

Only Julie Bishop and two or three other avid Turnbull supporters were available for Rudd's support, nowhere near enough! But Julie Bishop as usual was concerned only forJulie Bishop and her perceived UN power base was evaporating quicker than a Pakistani piss on Passover, but so was Turnbull’s as he turned to the stick insect to quiet an angry Party.

Turnbull’s greatest ally in his succession to the throne, Aunty Julie, was now out on a friendless limb and there are many Libs with chain saws eager to set her free.

It’s back to the old Turnbull we all know. A fool who had no idea what he was getting himself into by unilaterally assuring Kevin Rudd of Governmental support... and with virtually no majority to back that support.

He relied on Julie Bishop to garner the required backing for his decision but the Libs generally owed Bishop nothing except a boot up the bum and they were already furious with Turnbull for losing almost all of Abbott’s hard won majority. And of course no-one had the slightest respect for the psychopathic moron, Rudd.

Another Godwin Gretch moment for Turnbull and a further weakening of his position now he has the dreaded stick insect offside.

One thing Libs can be assured of is that Cory Bernardi’s cathartic effort to secure the Party’s Right faction into a Lib version of GetUp will be of renewed interest to the Abbott backers.

                                               Abbott is just an interested onlooker

But Abbott will not be a visible starter in this coming fracas, he is far too an honourable Party Member for that. A trio like Turnbull, Bishop and Rudd is a trigger for a Liberal dog’s breakfast.

And whenever the despicable Rudd is part of any recipe you can be sure others’ heads will roll.

Turnbull has a distinct lack of vision.


#MakeAustraliaGreatAgain on...and you wont hear the Christian Churches raise a is pathetic...but as Pope Francis recently admitted, the Catholic Church has been trying to wipe out the Orthodox Christians for the last 1000 years...and its happily used islam and jews/communits to do it..

Obviously me too! (lol)...

:) thats the best way to confirm it for yourself...and it shocking what lies we have been and still are fed on a daily basis...sadly a number of PP'ers prefer to throw abuse and stay ignorant...oh well!

Maybe she can call in McHales Navy too

Sorry ChrisC... had you confused with ChristK...

CC..yes we're in agreement , the whole 'Jewish' mythology is a giant hoax.(the Talmud is admitted fiction).the only real jews of the Tribe of Judah, disappeared into Egypt at least 1000 years before the mythical christ it could have been as far back as 5000 years ago...who and whatever they were, there is no record of them from the Egyptians..its only the Christian church which keeps giving these frauds oxygen,...

Most flat headed youth believe it because they have been spoon fed this shit as part of the socialist's march through the establishment for the past 50 years! Now they are either completely convinced or too stupid the realise the consequences.

interesting CC...having had a look at the Gulag archipelago, I certainly did not recall Solzhenitzyn attacking jews...and according to the link, this was in fact correct.' Solzhenitsyn says that, despite the presence of Jewish Leon Trotsky, the 1917 February and October Revolutions were not the work of Judaism. Solzhenitsyn says that the Jews who participated in revolution were effectively apostates splitting from the spirit of tradition.[1] Solzhenitsyn emphatically denies that Jews were responsible for the revolutions of 1905 and 1917.'..Duke now spells out the truth...and the jew mob go after Solz regardless

BK, do you live in NSW?. Shake your head in disgust if you like but it's nothing to how I feel about your comments. NSW is an incredibly expensive to live in. Houses are off the list for most young families living/working in Sydney and increasingly in the regional areas. Both mum and dad now have to work as many hours as they can whilst their kids are handed over to the state to educate and to look after. As many of the NSW posters have said Baird is selling assets....assets....think about it....meh maybe not....don't fuss yourself. My neighbours increasingly growing more of their food and going to bed early rather than use the heating, what a great life! You are a fool. Reducing the interest rates, preying on self-funded retirees' super and no debt plan is the federal sign of the failure.

U.S. “Democracy” in Action: Report Shows 91% of Americans Didn’t Want Clinton Or Trump
The vast majority of American residents do not vote.
A recent report published by The New York Times has pointed out that an overwhelming majority of Americans, 91% of them in fact, did not support or vote for Clinton or Trump in the recent primary elections.
The figures were calculated from statistics that were gathered by the U.S. Census Bureau, Federal Election Commission, Dave Leip’s Atlas of U.S. Presidential Elections, The Sentencing Project, and the Pew Research Center.
The figures illustrate that scores of people living in America are not allowed to vote, they are considered ineligible due to their age, prior arrests, or incomplete citizenship applications.
In total, there 103 million people who are essentially banned from voting, so this demographic would technically fall into the category of people who did not support Trump or Clinton in the primaries, although their actual preference can’t be determined.
Furthermore, there is an increasingly significant portion of the US population that is deciding not to vote on principle, because they don’t feel particularly enthusiastic about any of the candidates.
It was determined that 88 million people who were eligible to vote, did not vote in the primaries, and will not be voting in the general elections either. These are principled non-voters who have refused to put their consent into a system that they don’t believe is legitimate.
Of the Americans who do plan on voting in the main elections this November, most of them didn’t vote in the primary elections. According to the report in the Times, an additional 73 million did not vote in the primaries this year, but will most likely vote in the general election.
In total, roughly 60 million people voted in the primaries, with about 30 million voting for Republicans and another 30 million voting for Democrats. The funny thing about this, though, is the fact that most of these voters supported other candidates in the primaries since there was a wider group of politicians from which they can choose.
Although Clinton and Trump did finish in the lead, they only needed a very small percentage of eligible voters to win the nomination. When looking at the overall level of support that they have among the average American, that number is even smaller. Together, Clinton and Trump had the support of roughly 14% of eligible voters, and 9% of American residents in general.
This may seem strange, but this is actually the case in every single election.

If Voting Made A Difference, They Wouldn’t Let Us Do It
“The people who cast the votes decide nothing. The people who count the votes decide everything.”—Joseph Stalin, dictator of the Soviet Union.
"..............In other words, voting is not the answer.
As I document in my book Battlefield America: The War on the American People, the nation is firmly under the control of a monied oligarchy guarded by a standing army (a.k.a., militarized police. It is an invisible dictatorship, of sorts, one that is unaffected by the vagaries of party politics and which cannot be overthrown by way of the ballot box.
“Total continuity” is how Hedges refers to the manner in which the government’s agenda remains unchanged no matter who occupies the Executive Branch. “Continuity of government” (COG) is the phrase policy wonks use to refer to the unelected individuals who have been appointed to run the government in the event of a “catastrophe.” You can also refer to it as a shadow government, or the Deep State, which is comprised of unelected government bureaucrats, corporations, contractors, paper-pushers, and button-pushers who actually call the shots behind the scenes.
Whatever term you use, the upshot remains the same: on the national level, we’re up against an immoveable, intractable, entrenched force that is greater than any one politician or party, whose tentacles reach deep into every sector imaginable, from Wall Street, the military and the courts to the technology giants, entertainment, healthcare and the media.

Anyone see Julia Baird going hysterical on the Drum trying to discuss Gay marriage - talk about a lopsided panel - 4 against one.. What is this term they use LGBTI or something?

Howard said that Abbotts attack on Hanson was all his doing and had nothing to do with him so what sort of Prime Minister seeing one of his junior ministers on TV tearing strips off Pauline Hanson in Prime Time TV and print media including the Singaporean Straights Times who went Pauline crazy with a lot of Australian help then says he has nothing to do with it ????? Does this mean that Abbott was uncontrollable ?

It is obvious that Turdbull is a dead man walking and Baird is critically injured. I am wondering who will be the first to be overthrown. Tell you what , Ill sleep on it Goodnight all. We live in interesting times .!!

Now that Kevin won't be getting his UN gig where do I get the application form from ?

What type of plant Bruce??? May I suggest. a liberal wallflower??
