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 wrong when I said disturbing details of the Bowe Bergdahl “swap” will emerge next week. They are emerging now and they reveal a defining moment in Barack Obama’s presidency that may well end in impeachment at the hands of his own Democrats. 

He has truly betrayed the American people for the last time and, as Commander in Chief of the Armed Forces, he has betrayed every dead and serving US soldier.

When greeting the parents of deserter Bowe Bergdahl in the Rose Garden even the Left Press were astonished when Obama smiled knowingly at the father, Robert (he had changed his name to Abdullah) Bergdahl’s opening remark: “In the name of God, the merciful, the compassionate”. 

It was remarkable not so much for what he said, but that he said it in Arabic: “Bismillah al-Rahman al-Rahim.”

He tweeted, “I am still working to free all Guantanamo prisoners. God will repay for the death of every Afghan child, amen!” He tweeted that in Pashto, the principal language of the Taliban. 

 Obama had again bypassed Congress to release the five Taliban prisoners he described as “low level” in exchange for Abdullah Bergdahl’s son Bowe. But he lied, the five were anything but “low level”.

They were senior Taliban operatives whose files were marked, “should never be released”. 

They included Norullah Noori, the ex-governor of the northern province of Balkh who is accused of taking part in the 1998 massacre of thousands of people and also wanted by the United Nations for war crimes.

The others include Khairullah Khairkhwa, the Taliban Interior Minister, Mohammad Fazl, a former military commander with a ruthless reputation for beheadings, Abdul Haq Wasiq, deputy head of the Taliban intelligence service, and chief operator Mohammad Nabi who, with two others, is a 1994 founder of the Sharia imbued Taliban movement. 

According to Gitmo files, all five were originally targeted by the Military as “high value” operatives who were responsible, either indirectly or directly, for the deaths of at least one thousand US soldiers.

Bahara Jan Bahar, a Kabul woman who actively resists the Taliban said yesterday, “The release of the five has dealt a severe psychological blow to my people after years of fighting the Taliban.”

Jan Bahar may well spare a thought for the US soldiers who risked their lives to capture those five terrorists and for those six (some say 14) soldiers who were mown down trying to find Abdullah Bergdahl’s son, Bowe.

Parents of the six dead soldiers received a pro-forma letter of condolence from Obama. But you can only imagine how those parents felt watching Obama’s White House reception for the parents of the man their sons died trying to "rescue". 

In the embracing arms of Obama they left the Rose Garden knowing full well their son had deserted to the other side to assist the Taliban and then feigned capture to gain the release of the Gitmo five.

Thank God those six dead soldiers didn’t live to see Bowe Bergdahl feted as a returned captive hero by the Obama Administration. 

Bowe, who said he was ashamed to be an American, had left his firearm and deserted his post taking only a water bottle and a compass. It had taken him a reported three hours to find the Taliban encampment he was searching for. 

Children of the Taliban had rushed to greet him indicating a pre-arranged meeting. (Bowe’s father Abdullah is in constant touch with the Taliban speaking, typing and tweeting in Arabic.) 

The Taliban then waited for six of Bowe’s platoon members who had set out to “rescue” him. They promptly killed all six while Bowe watched. 

Bowe immediately converted to Islam and regularly took part in Taliban training exercises firing his own gun given him by his “captors”. American deaths from Taliban IEDs soon doubled... Bowe had disclosed information the Taliban wanted. 

After three years of fun and games with the “enemy” Bowe agreed to play the role of captive to enable negotiations to begin for the release of the Taliban heroes from Gitmo.

The US Defence Intelligence Agency could have provided Obama with details of who was sleeping with the enemy, but they weren’t asked. If they had been, it would have ruined Obama’s plans. 

The five terrorists are now in the “safe keeping” of Qatar for one year before they can recommence killing Americans. But few trust Qatar, particularly after its involvement with FIFA and its fraudulent acquisition of the 2022 World Cup.

There is little doubt Bowe Bergdahl and his Islamic father acted in concert with the Taliban to obtain the release of five "high level" terrorists. There is no doubt that Bowe was a Taliban collaborator. 

Obama is bathing in the glory of “never leaving a soldier behind” but that false claim is about to backfire as the Military, the Democrats, the Republicans and most Americans start to see their Islam-sympathising President in a different light.

What were formerly fluid conspiracy theories are starting to gel.

Obama's written speech at Normandy praising the thousands of American soldiers who gave their lives for Western freedom somehow seems empty.


Regardless of Obama's middle name or background, what has happened to the time honoured adage of WE WILL NEVER NEGOTIATE WITH TERRORISTS?? Stand by for a spate of terrorist activity, emboldened by their latest triumph.

FBI involved now.

This is a disgrace. But I am not surprised. Unfortunately 'what creepy puppet', will replace him? Biden? Hillary? The world is doomed. Psychopaths are in charge of the world, cold callous snakes - Soros's weird little creeps with names like Herumphry, Frilly Tiarared Queens, Chocolate Kings and other ground grovelling fall out.

Why, ct? It can't be enjoyable, surely? There's a bunch of good brains here that fell into the toilet. Who's better, Malcolm or Tony?

Who'd have thought that a bunch of twelve year olds would be tapping away on PP on a Sunday night. Gee wiz, this new generation of children are immature.......and nasty. Now kids, what is the quickest and cheapest way to cover 100 x 100 meters of level soil with couch grass? Much obliged in anticipation.

It would be an impossible task for a fag to give up fags.

..and we thought we would never ever have to suffer again, the likes of Windsor, Oakshott and Brandt , the recent political prostitutes!!!... and here comes Palmer and his bunch of 'pros' to cause more economic disaster to Australia.

I don't know waldo, ct but that last comment was a beauty. How anyone can work a lifetime in this country and then need stolen money to survive in retirement is just ridiculous.

I wasn't really having a shot ( pardon the pun ) at the military. There are plenty of politicians who don't have military service and who are just space wasters....I was questioning the role of military and its incompatibility with civilian models of government a la Cromwell's "Model Army" and the separation of powers as it has emerged.....I am for limited numbers of lawyers and ex military in our parliaments...a few are OK I would agree.....

At least he is into his Nicorette's and trying to give up the fags!

9/11 WAS an Inside Job!
Listen verrry carefully – Ve vil say this just Once only.....
(Vell OK Maybe 3 Times – Jus’ for You.)

So – Are we All now suitably worked up in our hatred of all things Islamic?
Well - That's the Whole Idea. And They in turn HATE us Infidels right back.
BUT - The 9/11 Attacks on the WTC Towers & Pentagon were NOT the work of Al Qaeda, although they are proud to take the credit .
CIA trained Bin Laden was the perfect Fall Guy for this extraordinarily planed Attack which must have taken Years to set-up and execute.
The Taliban just would not have had the Technology to pulverize these specially designed buildings, nor the access to plant the explosives. – Especially inside the Pentagon.
The Only group capable of an Operation of this magnitude is “The Illuminati” (AKA; Power Elite, New World Order, Agenda 21, One World Government etc. etc.)
The Point of this exercise was an excuse to declare a “War on Terror’ and to reduce the liberties of the sheeple by introducing the “Patriot Act”.
No - Don’t bother to Think for yourselves – Answers will be Provided.

So – Go Ahead, Rip Me to Pieces– “Make My Day....”

JF. Thanx for your opinion of the foibles of The Military. I served six permanent years and can agree with only some of it. The Military makes MEN out of BOYS and creates Leaders with discipline who can structure and implement a plan to defend their Homeland / State from 'The Enemy'. Despite your opinion ( did you ever serve?) I still believe Newman can and will do more for this State and country than the likes of Clive Palmer or any of the proven hopeless would be leaders of the bagatel now called 'the Opposition'.

I wouldn't be surprised what pup are up to. Cunning Clive is into so many things, and whether they are legal or not, that's another thing.

100 Aussie...perhaps we should be afraid......very afraid...?

brian. I asked a friend of the member of pup and she said he was really into clive and still thought he was great. They're trying to set up a "Friends of PUP" in the dance club and local area. Clive must be handing out goodies or offering incentives to him. That's all I can say. Maybe there are incentives we don't know about.

Ad 3 recounts because it was so close . Palmer had 29% of the primary vote and O'Brien was over 40%.

I see a Christabel and Dee emerging from this bunch of idiots. Two retards who find it hard to wipe their own arses but who will stymie the government because they listen to a big blowhard who can bullshit his way along.

Not quite right DS... Like the US, Russian Presidents cannot stand for elections after two consecutive terms, and Putin didn't. He stood for two five year terms and was elected, then he stood down for 5 years and was elected Prime Minister, then he stood for president again. He can and will be elected again when the next election is due... he can then start again as Prime Minister...

They reckon if you pulled Obama's pants down you would see the scar where they cut his tail off.

Thanks to you DJT . I was listening to something entirely different until you posted your link, seems now every media outlet in the USA is on to it. Will take awhile for the ABC to cotton on to it, they are focusing on the guy in china with the small dick
