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.


He was a stickler for accuracy and his daily cartoon space will not be effectively filled by any contemporary cartoonist. The rebellious newspaper cartoonists have all gone with the greats of the past who adorned the pages of Smith’s Weekly and the old Bulletin. Current newspaper cartoonists are frightened of upsetting the few, but strive to placate the many in an environment of PC mania and Left lunacy. That's not real cartooning!

Bill Leak was never frightened to air what needed airing and The Australian backed his ballsy comments despite hailstorms of “offended” letters to the editor.

                             Bill was not only a cartoonist but an exquisite artist

We now bury the last of the real cartoonists who stretched the envelope to breaking point and made the Yank and Pom cartoonists writhe in envy and The Australian editors reach for the Mylanta.

He was too politically incorrect for the ABC and Fairfax, but not for me. He was an artist you looked forward to seeing as a light among the predictable also rans who barely raised a smirk.

I’d like to think I could buy you another beer one day mate, but I suspect I will be shown the down elevator.


RIP to one of Australia's freedom fighters.

More power to the Australian and News Corp for publishing Bill Leak's wonderfully truthful satires on the loonesy of so many of the "popular causes" of today. He will be missed most when it becomes apparent that no other cartoonist working in Australia at the moment will dare to sketch, draw and satirise the freakish beliefs held by so called elites, in Australia and elsewhere.



For any of you who missed my comment yesterday, it appears that the traitor Peter Hendy may be trying his luck for pre selection in the seat of Bennelong?

When and where is Bill Leak's funeral?

Hows this for a thought, Bill Shorten got his mate to rule that penalty rates should be reduced and have the findings released before the WA elections to be able to build up resistance against them and blame the bad old conservatives for going along with the recommendations. Remember that BS said he would not go against the independent umpires decision but turned like a worm when the decision came down. He did that because he knew the WA elections were only a couple of weeks away and he knew that he could launch another labor work work relations scare campaign. The LNP are going to have to wake up to he dirty tricks of the Labor/union tactics or they will certainly be irrelevant at the next election. They need to DRAIN THE SWAMP in the labor/union movement.

Q and A last night. Once again the GayBC promotes itself by placing a nutcase in the audience. Just how many times are they allowed to do this? Disgusting that this bitch was allowed to shout out so soon after a great man and a great artist has passed. I also note that these members of the "Arts" community are so rabid. I actually hadn't heard of any of them until last night ......and I hope to never hear from them again.

Purim Fest Recalls of the Jewish Act of Genocide
“……Rabbi Melamed has declared that those who worship Jesus Christ are idolaters: “…they (Christians) still embrace idolatry, believing that ‘oto ha’ish’ [Jesus] is god and the messiah, who will be resurrected to redeem the world… This delusion that Jesus is the mashiach (messiah) is indeed a false belief. As we learned from the words of the Rambam (Moses Maimonides, Laws of Kings 11:4): ‘Jesus the Christian, who thought he was the Messiah… was the subject of a prophesy in the Book of Daniel (11:14): ‘…also the renegades of your people will exalt themselves to fulfill the vision – but they will stumble.’ Could there be a greater stumbling block than this [Jesus]?”
For Purim 2012, Rabbi Melamed has made the following declaration: “Although the main mitzvah of wiping-out Amalek rests upon the community in general, every individual Jew is also obligated to fulfill this mitzvah. Therefore, if one comes upon an Amalekite and has chance to kill him, but does not – he has annulled this mitzvah (Sefer HaChinuch, 604).
Amalek was the first anti-Semite…Today, the seed of Amalek has been lost; however, if (it) becomes clear that a certain person is an Amalekite, following in their ways, it would be a mitzvah (blessed deed) to kill him (see Kol Mevaser 2:42)…Only after evil is eradicated from the world can there be complete joy. Thus on Purim, after the obliteration of Haman and his sons, happiness is especially great.” Cf. Rabbi Eliezer Melamed, “Amalek: War Against the Root of Evil,” Israel National News, Feb. 28, 2012 (emphasis supplied).
Rabbi Melamed then creates an escape clause in case some people might be horrified at the notion of killing anyone labeled an “anti-Semite”: “…if an Amalekite decides to take upon himself the fulfillment of the Seven Mitzvoth of Noah’s Sons, according to Jewish law, there is no longer an obligation to kill him…”
The “Seven Mitzvoth of Noah’s Sons, according to Jewish law” (i.e. Talmudic law and successive halachos derived from it), decree death for idolaters. In Judaism worship of Jesus Christ is defined as avodah zorah (idol worship). “Anti-semitic” Amalekites and those who worship Jesus are subject to death. They can only escape capital punishment by accepting the Seven Mitzvoth of Noah’s Sons and denying that Jesus is God. This is what it means to “take upon” the “Seven Mitzvoth of Noah’s Sons” (Noachide Laws): the messiah status and divinity of Jesus Christ must be denied. The U.S. Congress is on record (Public Law 102-14) recommending the enactment of these misnamed “Noah” laws (in Orthodox Judaism the patriarch Noah is derided as a low character; cf. Judaism’s Strange Gods [2011] p. 108)

A predictable outcome on Queers & arseholes last night....

Every time I look at that painting of Sir Harold Knight I am moved by Bill Leak's understanding of the human soul.

Rock and roll.

Who is this bloke?

That's a bad stutter you have there Mike.

keep calm and sail on


Had another scam come through last week. This one was a demand from the tax dpt. Accountant said it most likely is a scam as there have been many reported incidents. So that is now 3 bogus parking infringements, 1 Australia Post and now the Tax Dept. Just thought I would let you all know..

Triggs will never get her friggin' apology now.

Stop making gay jokes, they aren't funny. Come on guys.

New post up.

Fake News: Whipping up a media frenzy over bizarre “records” before they occur

Australia’s “leading climate scientists” can’t predict the climate but they are very good PR operatives. Here in Perth we’ve had a cool year — for the last twelve months it’s been nearly a whole degree cooler than the average for the last 20 years. But last weekend in Perth, news stories told us we’d had an “autumn stinker” and wait for it, we might get Perth’s second hottest first eight days of March. Call that a HFEDOM record and write in the Guinness Book of records. It’s a permutation “record” almost as important as the longest distance run by a man holding a table in his teeth. Except it’s not even a record, it’s a news story about a record that “might happen”, but didn’t.

Let’s name Neil Bennett (BOM) and Will Steffen (ANU) as the Propaganda-in-Chiefs dumping meaningless climate-trivia on the people in order to generate FEAR and screw more money from the public.

Straight from the New Climate PRAVDA Manual:

Invent contrived trivial permutations in order to use the word “record”
Don’t bother waiting for real data, use forecasts
If record includes the word “cool”, “cooler”, or “cold”, send to trash.
When wrong, crickets.
