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 was one of many who thought Trump could not win the nomination, not because I didn’t want him to win, but because I thought the GOP would kill his bid, and they tried hard. But his win has been so conclusive, so definitive, no-one would dare to deny his legitimacy... so look out, the Don has shown how much smarter he is than the GOP establishment and he’s about to show just how much smarter he is than the Democratic politically correct class.

It has not been a good year for God either as not one religious nutter has had his prayers answered in the race to the White House. So the contest will be exclusive to non believers or fellow travellers!

Now that Kasich has abruptly tossed in the towel Trump can clear the way for the killing of Hillary. And it seems there has been a deal done with Kasich, the only candidate leaving with a relatively clean nappy.

Trump has stolen a march leaving Hillary lagging behind still sparring with that lovable old cold war commo, Bernie Sanders. The Left media are used to dictating the political agenda, but this time they have been left with their pants down not knowing whether they are Arthur or Martha. Not one media person can figure out WTF is going on.

Just look at how sparring with a harmless old Lefty has aged Hillary and the cage-fighting style of the Don hasn’t even begun yet. The latest Bookies’ odds (the only polls worth considering) have Hillary at 11/4-on with the Don close behind at 2/1-against.

The odds will vary wildly as Trump forensically starts to expose the Clintons as crooks while the White House and the Department of Justice tries desperately to protect her. It seems Hillary cannot possibly withstand the damning evidence piling up against her and the DoJ may have to eventually act against her to save its own skin.

The media simply don’t want to know anything about the dodgy side of Hillary and her husband but the Don has already destroyed 16 other contenders so Hillary is simply next on his execution list... and she is carrying more baggage than anyone.

The conclusion among America’s Left media is that Hillary will thrash Donald in a general election...  Oh boy, they are still underestimating him.

Every 20 or 30 years it’s time for a clean out... the Left will have infiltrated all areas of government and its agencies. No-one will have noticed because the infiltration is deathly silent.

The sensible centre remains blithely unaware until it awakes one morning to find everything it held dear has gone and everything it depended on is at risk.

It’s only then that a Donald Trump comes along to make things great again.


Oh only because of the unimportant small detail that whatever happens in the US, will affect Australia in the long term, that's all.

Thanks Old Jacktar... what a loser is that one?????

Most of us here are proud Aussies who care about their country.............and we all know what a ringer is!

Oh jeeezuz...Kym got chased out of Bolt's blog because you are a tosser, wonder how long you'll last here?

Winter [& The Donald] is coming! We need a Trump in Oz for sure & certain. Who is it?

Women age more badly than men. It's a fact that intelligent women accept.

Clearly nobody has told the ugly wrinkled old prune called Hilary that she's as ugly as sin.

The Donald will be a good POTUS. make no mistake ringer!!! Go think about it..

Right on Gent.. right on!

geez - she looks as if she just parked her broomstick in a parking lot on a cold and frost morning - she should be running around in a bikini preaching global warming

Clinton ? .... you're down in the gutter with that one ... YouTube Clinton and crime ... watch and learn

And I'm very happy to say "I was right" Larry. Trump is the only one over there without the Bankers hanging around their necks.

"It has not been a good year for God either as not one religious nutter has had his prayers answered in the race to the White House." Think your looking at the wrong set of 'God Botherers', Larry. Most of the ones I pay attention to have been on the Trump wagon for months!

Left ! Left! Left! Out in numbers tonight. Wasting time here. Red wine will make for a more stimulating evening.

Now is the winter of our Malcontent.

It's our wonderful media I think being lazy. It's easier to plagiarise US media than actually do decent reporting on domestic issues. Just look at what Oz journo's write about now, and how badly they do it.

This one is more about why we don’t want Hillary.
I think this sums it up well !
Donald Trump and Hillary Clinton are in a bar. Donald leans over, and with a smile on his face, says, "The media are really tearing you apart for That Scandal."

Hillary: "Using the Clinton Foundation as a cover for tax evasion, hiring cronies, and taking bribes from foreign countries?

Trump : “ No the other one .”
Hillary: "I give up! ... Oh wait, I think I've got it! When I stole the White House furniture, silverware and China when Bill left Office?"
Trump: "THAT'S IT! I almost forgot about that one".

Everything outlined above is true. Yet she still gets the Democratic votes.
Could there be that many stupid people in this country?
Does anyone understand this? If not, I think we're doomed!

Go Donald Trump.

This video is an ABSOLUTE MUST WATCH.

Trump can make America great again which will benefit global economies.

For all the mindless war-mongering accusations about Trump, that trophy sits squarely on Hitlary's lap infinitely more than Trumps. He is a deal maker. She is beholden to the arms manufacturers and the war machine who over the years have filtered literally BILLIONS into the Clinton Foundation. They want their pay-off, and are funding the greatest character assassination in history.

It the Pope were running against Hitlary they would make him look like Idi Amin.

Here's a thought?! IF Hillary's is indicted fro her alleged crimes and is looking tolay the blame off on somthing ??/or SOMEONE else ?? Will she TAKE BILLY DOWN WITH HER? He may be afraid ?! Very AFRAID !!

Part 1. A MUST read for those who wonder what the hell will happen in America next year?

An interesting angle on Trump. The last part will really get to you………

Donald Trump is a genuine phenomenon. He may or may not become the Republican nominee for president. He may or may not win the presidency even if he becomes the nominee. Yet it is clear that he is a phenomenon and that any history of the 2016 presidential race will have to spend a good bit of time analyzing Trump and his impact.
From the time he announced on June 16, Trump has dominated social and mainstream media. He dominates the conversation despite the lack of paid advertising. Trump says outrageous things and his supporters shrug it off. At every turn, his poll numbers continue to rise.
As a step toward understanding this amazing performance, I spent part of the Christmas break reading his first bestseller, ‘The Art of the Deal’. Written in 1987, this book is a classic among American business books and has influenced a generation of entrepreneurs. Trump wrote ‘The Art of the Deal’ when he was 41 years old and having a successful run. The book’s popularity contributed to Time Magazine’s decision to feature Donald Trump on its cover in January 1989.
The portrait that emerges from this easy-to-read and remarkably interesting book is of an aggressive, ambitious person who is constantly pushing, constantly learning, and always seeking the next challenge. Reporters and analysts who are trying to understand Trump would be well served by slowing down and reading this nearly three-decade-old bestseller.
They would discover that Donald Trump has developed a remarkable set of rules and principles that allow him to make decisions with incredible speed. Trump knows a lot, but what is amazing is how rapidly he figures out what he doesn’t know.
My favorite story is of the Wollman Skating Rink in New York’s Central Park.
The Wollman Rink was a heavily used public skating rink which had fallen into disrepair in 1980. New York City tried for six years to fix it, spent $13 million, and the rink still was not ready to open.
Total incompetence by the City Council.
In June of 1986 Trump, who could see the rink from his apartment, finally got tired of the embarrassment and offered to fix the rink at his own expense. At first the city turned him down because its bureaucracy did not want to be embarrassed by someone fixing somethin theycouldn’fix. Trump kept pushing and finally out of embarrassment the city gave in.
The key part of the story is Trump’s reaction to being put in charge. He promptly recognized that he didn’t know anything about fixing a skating rink. He asked himself who built a lot of skating rinks. “Canadians!” he concluded. He found the best Canadian ice skating rink construction company. When the Canadians flew in to assess the situation, they were amazed at how bad the city had been at solving the problem. They assured Trump that this was an easy job. Trump fixed the six year embarrassment two months ahead of schedule and nearly $800,000 under-budget. (The city did end up paying for the work, and Trump donated the profits to charity.)
After reading this chapter you begin to think that maybe Donald Trump really could build a wall along our southern border for a lot less than our current government estimates.
‘The Art of the Deal’ is filled with stories like this — stories of common sense stories of calculated risk taking, and stories o innovation and marketing. Anyone who would like to better understand Donald Trump would be helped by reading this remarkable book.
Another is his pledges and I have no way of knowing if he will make good on all of them but I do agree with all of them. Trump is the only candidate that is serious about building The Wall" !
Two other important pledges Trump has made that no other candidate of either party has matched ! First deportation of millions of illegals that are demanding and costing American taxpayers billions of dollars and second Closing 34 Muslim traing Camps throughout our country! I WOULD LIKE TRUMP OR ANY OTHER CANDIDATES PLEDGE TO REINSTATE ANY AND ALL MILITARY OFFICERS DISCHARGED BECAUSE THEY DISAGREED WITH OBAMA OR HIS POLICIES!!
