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.


And that’s a shame because sexual assault is far more serious than a crass feminist movement. Harvey Weinstein must have had some carryover into this re-trial where, due to the statute of limitations, only five of 62 complainants were allowed to testify. But with the sentencing phase to come, the judge will likely allow victim-impact statements from everyone who wants to see Cosby die penniless in jail.

                                  The women's attorney bathes in success

Sixty two women can’t be wrong, the sheer weight of numbers over-rode the "she said, he said" evidence to convince a jury of five women and seven men to put the 80 year-old Bill Cosby in the can for life. 

It seems impossible that Cosby was America’s (even the world’s) lovable TV dad with an                                          unmatched cool sense of humour.

If predators like Cosby and Weinstein are put away for good, Hollywood will be a more respectable place. Yet there are other abusers who will never be discovered because of their victims' fear of not being believed.

A distinction must be drawn between Weinstein and Cosby. What Cosby did was far worse. Any women or prospective starlet who entered Weinstein’s office must have expected to pay the price of a starring role on his couch.

Everyone knew about Weinstein… he was just another part of the sick Hollywood game where a starlet closes her eyes, thinks of England, and allows a filthy old man to invade her in return for a chance at fame and fortune.

Cosby is guilty of more sinister things. He drugged countless unsuspecting women before he got what he wanted from them. He clearly has no sex appeal if his conquests needed to be drugged. 

And if you think Weinstein has sex appeal you had better call Specsavers.

So, one used drugs and the other an attractive carrot. Both drag the name of real blokes in the gutter. Real blokes go without sex rather than use money and drugs for “pretend” consent.

                                                  Some of Cosby's accusers

It seems a tragedy that Cosby could possibly die in jail with anything up to a 30 year sentence awaiting him. The more likely sentence will be ten concurrent years with a minimum of five and that’s enough, the women have had their 15 minutes of high-fiving and "#Me too" promotion in court.

But Cosby has the money and flash attorneys to win a coming appeal. There are multiple grounds for the judge to be found at fault.

Cosby is home now on bail watching TV while his wife of 40 years gets him a coffee. An appeal is no doubt imminent and it has a good chance of success despite the evidence of five complainants and another 57 others who will be invited to join the sentencing phase with some horrific stories.

Cosby will certainly launch an appeal because he will prefer to spend what's left of his money on attorneys rather than paying out the damages claimed by the #Me too" mob.

ANDREA CONSTAND: She claimed "SEXUAL ASSAULT", but returned to Cosby for more after he had already paid her $3.5m in a 2006 settlement. The original                                                     trial resulted in a hung jury.

Sixty two “#me too” female activists not only want Cosby’s blood, they want to brand the white (and in this case a black) male as a despicable predator. Now for the civil case to drain Cosby of every cent he has.

Eventually Cosby will likely be acquitted while Weinstein will spend time inside and perhaps that is not fair because Cosby is far more culpable. But does anyone believe anything concerning US justice is ever fair? 

I mean Hillary Clinton is still walking her dog and James Comey is still flogging his book!


One thing strikes me as odd in all these claims of sexual misconduct by *stars* on wannabe *stars*. There is or was, an actors union, called by another name, of course but with the same intents as the cfmeu et al. Its quite recently the actors did the marching with banners thing over wanting more money for well, acting. So why don't those who suffer the offence complain to their union? Or have they complained & simply been told *they must suffer for their art" so as not to upset, for all concerned, they very lucrative apple cart.

Give me the Truth.......I don't hide behind an Agenda, I am an Australian............Just something I believe in...

What are those black dots on Cosby's face , gunshot pellets perhaps ?

Hi waldo, good to see you.

Proof of your statement that 'to document or Utter it is an offence'. A link to a verified case where a conservative opinion has been charged with an offence. This media stuff is a bit beyond you. You are entitled to your opinion but not your own facts.

You can't even post a Cartoon that has a Conservative whiff........Exhibit 1.........Bill Leak......

Tigerbalm Sun 29 Apr 2018 10:57:23 am
Bill Leak posted a cartoon designed to provoke and it did. With rights come responsibility and consequences. Bill Leak exercised his right to free speech but it appears wasn't prepared to face the consequences.

Poor Tigerpiss.......Just Another example of your incompetence to haunt you..

Leak chose a minority of a minority to take a shot at. And cried foul when people stood up to him. Obviously, racists are cowards. Pablo posts shit, mostly lies that can't be backed up. I question him. You provided verifiable evidence I asked for. I critiqued it and said the right decision was made. The little smartarse who took on QUT and got Triggs involved ultimately showed the system we have in place works. Pablo needs to stop posting shit and I'll stop asking him to back it up.

Who lied and who knew? The real criminals of the Banking Royal Commission are the politicians. The Royal Commission has uncovered many crimes by the banks and other financial institutions in just a couple of weeks but the key to getting long-lasting change is getting at the core problem and that is the politicians who are continually lying about what they knew and when. How can everyone else in country know for the past 10 years or more that the banks have major problems with corruption but the politicians didn’t?

Some recent media focus has been on the fact that the Royal Commission should have been held earlier and that is right, but the media need to go beyond the failings of the Liberal Party and have a good look at the Labor Party as well. The problems of widespread criminal conduct and fraud in the banking industry is not new and includes the time when Labor leader Bill Shorten was Minister for Financial Services and Superannuation from 14.9.10 to 1.7.13.

America's post-9/11 wars: Why is there no accurate account of the millions killed?
Part One: Iraq
The numbers of casualties of U.S. wars since Sept. 11, 2001 have largely gone uncounted, but coming to terms with the true scale of the crimes committed remains an urgent moral, political and legal imperative.
How many people have been killed in America's post-9/11 wars? I have been researching and writing about that question since soon after the U.S. launched these wars, which it has tried to justify as a response to terrorist crimes that killed 2,996 people in the U.S. on September 11th 2001.
But no crime, however horrific, can justify wars on countries and people who were not responsible for the crime committed, as former Nuremberg prosecutor Ben Ferencz patiently explained to NPR at the time.
"The Iraq Death Toll 15 Years After the U.S. Invasion" which I co-wrote with Medea Benjamin, estimates the death toll in Iraq as accurately and as honestly as we can in March 2018. Our estimate is that about 2.4 million people have probably been killed in Iraq as a result of the historic act of aggression committed by the U.S. and U.K. in 2003. In this report, I will explain in greater detail how we arrived at that estimate and provide some historical context. In Part 2 of this report, I will make a similar up-to-date estimate of how many people have been killed in America's other post-9/11 wars........................"

TIMES OF ISRAEL - Law enforcement in Colombia on Thursday raided an Israeli-organized festival in the northeast of the country, confiscating large quantities of drugs.
The event, known as BenjaFest, was allegedly organized by suspected Israeli crime lord Assi Ben-Mosh and was attended by some 800 people, 90 percent of whom were Israeli, the Ynet news site quoted Colombian immigration authorities as saying.
