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.


Okay, apologies, I have been rabbiting on about the rise of NATO member Turkey for years and how it must inevitably confront Russia over a dozen contested States in Recep Tayyip Erdogan’s pursuit of re-establishing the old Ottoman Empire. But Putin is also on an unrelenting pursuit of an old USSR.

Ronald Reagan’s old mate, the terminally ill Mikhail Gorbachev, (the bloke with the map of New Zealand on his scone) can now afford to assure us all that Putin is on a mission and about to capitalise on his 85 per cent approval rating. And Gorbachev (above) does that in no uncertain terms.

Although Erdogan’s approval rating is only hovering around 51 per cent, a dodgy referendum “yes” vote gives him a green light to create a monolithic presidency, much more oppressive than that of Ataturk, with the powers to personally appoint or dismiss ministers, select judges and rule by decree in a constant state of emergency. 

           In fact Erdogan is styling himself on the evil Muslim extremist, "Suleiman the                                                               Magnificent", (above).

"For the first time in the history of our republic, we are changing our ruling system”, Erdogan ominously preached to supporters last year.The recent military coup led to a reported 200,000 protesters being either murdered or gaoled for indefinite periods. The transition has started.

Erdogan is now aping the late Sadam Hussein of Iraq who used poison gas to ethnically cleanse the border of the Kurds. Obama refused to assist the Kurds in fighting ISIS, but Trump sees the conflict differently and is now assisting the Kurds to contest their homeland againstTurkey. This puts NATO itself on shaky ground.

Was Turkey aspiring to be part of, and assisting, an ISIS Caliphate? It certainly seems so. Their brands of extreme Sunni Islam were similar and Turkey for years would not allow the US landing rights for US jet fighters to be used against ISIS. 

Turkey stood by in tanks and watched ISIS slaughter thousands of women and children in Syrian border towns like Kobane . All the while Turkey was killing off the Kurds under the pretense of them promoting terrorism.

Kurdish terrorism to Turkey is simply the act of resisting being slaughtered.  

Turkey was providing a safe haven for ISIS terrorists and was retailing oil stolen from the Syrians and Iraqis it couldn’t use itself to reward Arab States. 

If you still doubt what I say consider Erdogan’s eagerness to down a Russian jet fighter when it accidently overflew a sliver of land in Turkey’s noman’s land in the Mediterranean West. Or note Erdogan's unabashed four-finger salute “the Rabaa” of the original terrorist organisation the Muslim Brotherhood, (below). 

The Turkish State has been determined to destroy the Kurds’ cultural identity since the 1980s and has been waging a guerrilla war ever since. The Turkish armed forces want Ataturk’s secularism to be maintained while Erdogan wants the Ottoman Empire restored. Erdogan is winning under the radar, and by a large margin.

                                       Not considered by the West as WMD

But the Ottoman Empire, including Bulgaria's Sofia, Vienna, Belgrade, and most of Eastern Europe including the Baltic States and all Warsaw Pact nations, comes in direct conflict with Russia’s ambition to restore the USSR to a once-great power. And of course that includes Europe’s food bowl of Ukraine and all the odd bod “ikistan” States that border both Turkey and Russia.

This area is now an ignored smouldering powder keg and while Europe has been rejecting Turkey’s application to join the EU since 2005,  it is still accepting of the fact that Turkey is welcome as part of NATO as a bulwark against Russia and in support of the corrupt Ukraine's Poroshenko (above) . 

Europe’s West in Germany, France and even Italy are oblivious to this anomaly and Trump is not aware of the invidious position of having to align with and protect a Turkey at war with Russia (under Article Five’s collective defence treaty) and at the cost of the US as a NATO member. 

As Putin prepares to emulate Erdogan’s power play with his upcoming election in March, in which he is assured of 85 per cent approval, Trump must re-evaluate Turkey and prepare to accept the Democrats’ false claim of Russian “collusion”. Because he now needs to actively “collude” with Russia or face a new Islamic caliphate without limits. 

If he doesn’t we will have to contend with a new extreme Muslim power based in old Constantinople, and far greater than ISIS, with Turkey’s well-armed population of an economically sound 80 million, and a resurgence of the evil Muslim Brotherhood and Qatar against allied Egypt.

Obama had already aligned with Turkey and the Muslim Brotherhood against the Kurds, Trump will reverse that alignment,

                                                 …we had better hope!


Larry I once saw Vlad Putin that has stood in my mind as to his real makeup. It was Australia APEC, I shall never forget.

Thanks IE, very revelatory but Dr Jerome Corsi asks "what did Australia get in return for 100's of millions pumped into the Clinton Foundation?" It was done by the serial Commo liar & thief, the Red Witch via DFAT to keep it on the QT & the answer is we got zilch but she got a leg up into that junket job in international women's education after doing such a brilliant job of F'ing up our education system via the BER & Gonski & had Billary won the election she would no doubt leapfrog deadshits Krudd & Bishop as future Secretary General of the Marxist UN.

Yes Erdogan has unwound the secular Turkish state established by the great Kemal Attaturk After WW1 & established an evil, radical Islamic caliphate & is busy proselytising European Christian Churches & turning them into extremist Sunni mosques & flooding Europe with murderous, raping Islamic invaders. A proud NATO member & prospective member of the EU but as others leave I guess they'll take what they can get.

Just off the Qld Gold Coast NZ long line fishing boats have been netting large schools of mackerel out of the east coast food chain and it is fully in compliance with the Marxist Labor who have sold out local fishing people and have increased the likely hood of shark attack further down the coast where sharks are awaiting a feed that is impregnated into their minds by their parent to be there as has been their traditional feeding pattern .

Full speech

Putin has made holocaust revisionism a criminal offence in his country as it deflects attention onto Soviet atrocities such as the Katyn massacre of Polish officers and mass rape of 1 million German women by the Red Army during WW2 - If the holocaust is true then why is it necessary to send people to jail for simply asking questions ? Why does it need a special law to protect it from criticism unlike any other period in history ?

That is some pic of Mr President and Putin on the horse ha ha.

Penis envy, you prick?

Rinaldo, if you announced here that you were opening your own web site for those of like mind, I strongly suspect it would get more replies of congratulation than any previous post has ever garnered.

True it is to say Australia is fucked but even truer to say UK is really fucked. The enemy within. Where is Oliver Cromwell when we need hoim?

I watched the Turkish PM last night. I have feeling he is going to have a go at Syria. I pegged him as a second Hitler, in the way he speaks. I hope the US makes a stand against Turkey along with the Kurdish people. I hate repeating myself, but the Kurd's were the only ones that stood between the Christians and ISIS when the Christians were forced onto that mountain, mainly women and kids. Obuma did zilch. Poor buggers had no food or water. I agree Larry, what a team. I also don't think Trump would give a rats bum about NATO, or the base they have in Turkey. He would pull the pin on that in a heart beat.

Our GayABC over here in the west, is in a frenzy. Believe it or not, we have a few Bush Fires, being summer nothing unusual of course, happens every year. Broome has had over 400 ml of rain in 24 hours again not surprising, considering a minor cyclone, a rain bearing depression passed over the town heading inland, Cyclones do happen in our north at this time of the year. You can hear them itching to try and twist it, as though it has something to do with the Bull Shit climate change

New post up.

Go Donald

The last two editions of the World Economic Forum were somber affairs for oil industry chieftains and commodities tycoons. The consensus in Davos was that oil was going to stay low, OPEC would fail to lift prices, and the mining industry faced a difficult time.

Roll forward to 2018 and there’s been a near-universal shift in sentiment as strong and synchronized global economic growth drives demand for raw materials.

"We have not seen this kind of growth since before the global financial crisis," OPEC Secretary-General Mohammad Barkindo said in an interview.

In panel discussions, interviews, and conversations on the evening cocktail circuit at the Steigenberger Grandhotel Belvedere, it was hard to find a bearish voice. The Bloomberg Commodity Spot Index, a gauge that tracks raw materials from oil to wheat, has risen 41 percent over the last two years to trade at highs last seen in November 2014.

Daniel Yergin, the oil historian and consultant at IHS Markit Inc., summarized what many said in private: "The combination of strong economic growth and cheap money is lifting commodities."

The falling value of the U.S. dollar — often a trend that drives commodities higher — is also helping, particularly after U.S. Treasury Secretary Steven Mnuchin suggested in Davos the administration favored a weaker currency. Although President Donald Trump later walked back the comments, oil and commodities have felt the benefit of the dollar’s 11 percent slide over the last year.

The 2018 edition of the World Economic Forum was packed with natural resources executives, from Oleg Deripaska, the billionaire behind Russian aluminum giant United Co. Rusal, to BP Plc boss Bob Dudley. Big commodities traders included David MacLennan, the chief executive officer of Cargill and Ivan Glasenberg, the billionaire head of Glencore Plc.

Marco Dunand, the CEO of Geneva-based oil trader Mercuria Energy Group Ltd., said he expects oil to trade between $60 and $75 this year.

“The market has risen quite a lot recently and it would be wise to pause and see the response of U.S. shale,” Dunand, a former Goldman Sachs executive, said in an interview. "Demand growth has surprised many people and is going to remain strong.”

If you believe the Davos consensus, the U.S. tax cuts are set to accelerate America’s growth, China is now expanding faster after a two-year slowdown and the outlook in countries from Brazil to India looks positive. Moreover, Russia and Saudi Arabia are in no mood to rein in rising oil prices that are starting to salve strained government finances.

I know the success has already been mentioned here but one would expect the rats are in a panic now that the memo will be released. Dems are finished.

When can we expect to see Julie Bishop wearing this advertised Aussie uniform?

O/T....haven't heard anything about Salim(may peace be upon him) Majher in the last week.Do they still have the little douche banged up.??

Byth. Why are these the only alternatives? They're both destructive and /or wasteful. As to young men, I only wish I had the good sense to get involved with Reserves as a young bloke, but education didn't allow time for too much fun. I still like the Swiss idea. All men get to learn about firearms, bush craft ( snow craft?) military equipment etc.etc. Moreover their continue their association through to mid life. Not only good for blokes, but keeps them from getting sidelined and forgotten. Sportspersons can enjoy/entertain. that's no reason to waste money; OUR money is it?

Suleiman, Erdogan and Ataturk are really Jews?
"In fact Erdogan is styling himself on the evil Muslim extremist, "Suleiman the Magnificent", (above)."
Jew the Magnificent??

-In Ottoman history the first woman who got the title of “mother Sultan” was Nurbanu Sultan the mother of Murad III was a jewish convert. In this period the jewish population of the Palace hit the ceiling.
(?.Hakk? Uzunçar??l?, Osmanl? Devletinin Saray Te?kilat?, Türk Tarih Kurumu, Ankara 1945, s.88)
- Suleiman the Magnificent gathered Jews in palace and provided them immense privileges. During his Reign jewish population of state of Ottoman acquired power and welfare.

Mustafa. The name is an epithet of Muhammad that means, The Chosen One. It is a very common male given name throughout the Muslim world. This name is mostly used in Turkey after Mustafa Kemal Atatürk, founder of the Republic of Turkey.
A Jew, Mustapha-Kemal, Dictator of Turkey, cast out the Oecumenical Patriarch from Constantinople, where the Patriarchs of the Eastern Catholic Church have lived for a thousand years.
