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.


Ancient Bedouin warfare was reborn in the Gulf yesterday as the Saudi’s long held hatred for the tiny State of Sunni Qatar bubbled over amid claims of hacking and executions of each other’s citizens. It’s not just another spat this time as the Saudis via OPEC have the major say in total oil production, therefore pricing. And Qatar owns and exports gas from the world’s largest deposits.

There is little doubt that President Trump’s visit and his brash comments lit an old fuse between all those States who want a piece of Syria and Iraq, if not the entire Levant, once the dust settles.

Qatar is largely Sunni and supports the overthrown Egyptian Muslim Brotherhood, Al Queda and ISIS terrorists. Qatar also boasts media influence in the area via its Al Jazeera network where two separate channels are each dedicated to English and Arabian versions.

                                     The Arab Language channel is not promoted

The headquarters of Al Jazeera Arab Language channel in Doha is an extravagant shrine to slain Saudi, Osama bin Laden, with huge photographs including him on a horse with an assault rifle backed by an Arabian sunset. The entire studio leaves little doubt as to Qatar’s affiliations. 

But Al Jazeera English channel shows nothing of its terrorist alliances. Peter Greste did not understand that his English reporting, when it suited Qatar, was shown on the Arab channel to the Egyptians who promptly jailed him for three years. Peter never realised he was dealing with the devil who was using him for desperate influence in the Gulf.

Qatar's number one enemy is Egypt and it was Greste of Al Jazeera who got the blame for supporting the Brotherhood.

                                            ... and no landing rights for Qatar

But Qatar is about to host the corrupt FIFA’s World Cup in the middle of a Gulf summer and it has other Gulf States nervous over the tiny country’s increasing influence in the region. 

              Newly elected President of Iran, Hasaan Rouhani, cited as a "moderate".

It also has closer than acceptable (for the Saudis that is) relations with Trump’s new foe, the Shia State of Iran, and Iran hates all the same things as does Qatar. And it supports the same terrorist groups as Qatar, including Al Queda and ISIS who are already seeking a new alliance of destruction in the wake of an impending Syrian/Iraq vacuum.

So Trump’s determination to dump the EPA to assist with energy self-sufficiency may be a good move as oil is central to Gulf tribal warfare. But the terms of engagement of warfare have changed since the tented Bedouins' squabbles, now all States have access to modern weapons, no longer do they charge each other on moulting camels.

The only real damage is likely to be a sharp rise in the world's oil price, but even that will not be as catastrophic as it once was.

The West has continued to coddle the Saudi Family and the Saudis have recently taken an emboldened leadership of the Gulf’s task force to help wipe out ISIS. But that is already starting to come undone at the seams. 

The West seems incapable of realising that to kill off anything in the Middle East leaves a vacuum that will incite even greater problems.

Obama supported the 10 per cent of Shia in Iraq and in most States, this led to vicious tribal vengeance against the Sunnis and the Sunnis responded with even more violent paybacks. Trump has stated his determination to castrate Shia Iran's tilt at nuclear capability and that has altered the balance once again. And no-one knows where this one will finish.

Russia’s Putin apparently has greater foresight than the Americans who are fighting for the demise of Assad, because the vacuum that the popularly-elected Assad will leave is a short fuse on a Middle East time bomb that could involve Israel and suck the US and even Russia into another endless war where no-one can be sure of who they should be fighting.

                          Qatari bribery is king when it comes to a FIFA World Cup

Do you seriously believe NATO members, including the US, come even close to understanding corrupt Middle-East geopolitics?

It’s time to get out of that decadent Islamic hotbed of tribal hatred... we have enough trouble with it over here.


Have a look at the King of the Saudi's eyes looking at Bazza and the King's guard looking apprehensive .

Concentration camps for muslims on police watch lists.

Have a Chuckle...see the REPLY BOX....

Sorry LP, I just can’t support this diversion of culpability for the Islamic infection we have wrought upon ourselves in the West.
What type of Arabs we are dealing with is not relevant, nor is where they are from, their cultural origins, what religious variants they represent, nor their relationship with each other, all are totally irrelevant misdirection.
They are all ARABS. They are doing what they have always done for thousands of years, tribal warfare, rape, pillage and medieval butchering savagery. It is wrong and malicious to focus on why they do it in our countries because it is what they do in ANY country, especially their own. Do we really want to debate their lack of appreciation for OUR values?
Even worse, by even referring to such issues is simply feeding the progressive narrative that harnesses such issues as mitigation. The acid test is, when progressives try to explain which is the good end of the turd to pick it up by, they are nailed.
Our focus must be on why they were allowed out of their own countries in the first place that they are likewise destroying. Why are we focussing on the “symptoms and mitigation” rather than the “causes and solutions”?
“Another Arab War”? WTF Larry, when have they ever been not at war?
When we eventually recognise that our politicians are not just part of the problem, they are the problem; we can begin our journey back to freedom, democracy, our own values and sovereignty.
Progressives, with the support of unelected swill at both the UN and EU, are not just directing ideological policies; they are inflicting “sanctions” by the unelected against their own peoples.
C’mon Larry, start a campaign to get money donated for “Funeral Lilies and White Feathers” to be sent to Parliament House by the millions, rather than spending money on teddy bears, candles, flowers and solidarity marches. Why “Run, Hide, Tell” whilst waiting for the polling booths to open?

No truer words said by Miranda Devine in today's DT. All the bleating on about Australia being a bigoted and racist country by the bed wetting left and the ABC have spawned the Muslim jihadists on. We have those bastards preaching to these Muslims to become terrorists. And of course that despicable traitor c*nt whom headed up Punchbowl Boys High school. Teachers also have a lot to answer for.

Where's Flannery when we need him? we could do with some dry weather here in Sydney and a bit of global warming, it's wet and cold! That's climate change.
Shamless bastard, counting the sucker money the fools paid him, I suppose.

O/T....The old drink spiking defence.Check out this vile mouthed trollop ....

I switched over to 24 today and just caught Prince Harry's speech and then left. Some one else came in later and switch back to 24 just in time to hear that creep WWW adding his bloody son-in-law into the same category as those wounded soldiers! Tony Abbott never ever would be so crass as to shove his family into our faces at every possible opening. The Chinese grand-child in Singapore, the other grand-child shoved into some visiting leaders arms in Sydney. Couldn't get his face off the tv quick enough. That horrible son-in-law of his is one of the detractors on this site!!

What causes heart disease – part XXX


Inflammation – or not

Over the last few years there has been a significant shift, from many researchers, towards the idea that atherosclerosis is an inflammatory process, to a greater or lesser extent. Below is a quote from a cardiac surgeon. A man who admits he was wrong about cholesterol being the main underlying cause CVD, so I can applaud him for that. He goes on to say:

‘Simply stated, without inflammation being present in the body, there is no way that cholesterol would accumulate in the wall of the blood vessel and cause heart disease and strokes. Without inflammation, cholesterol would move freely throughout the body as nature intended. It is inflammation that causes cholesterol to become trapped.

Inflammation is not complicated — it is quite simply your body’s natural defence to a foreign invader such as a bacteria, toxin or virus. The cycle of inflammation is perfect in how it protects your body from these bacterial and viral invaders. However, if we chronically expose the body to injury by toxins or foods the human body was never designed to process, a condition occurs called chronic inflammation. Chronic inflammation is just as harmful as acute inflammation is beneficial.’............................”

Just had a look on Flightradar24 and there are plenty of planes flying in and out of Doha airport.

DT, How do I post in replies like you do?

From Cory Bernardi
I have just returned from two days in South Australia’s Riverland district. It’s a beautiful and productive part of the state with a tight-knit community.
They have been rocked by the murder of one of their own who was killed during the most recent London terror attack. It’s a tragic reminder that no matter how far away these events may seem, they often reach closer to home than we first realise.
The most recent barbarity by the pigs attached to Islamic fundamentalism seems to have woken Australian politicians from their slumber. Some are even now using the words ‘Islam’ or ‘Islamic’ in the same sentence as ‘terrorist’!
It’s clear that for many, political courage emerges in baby steps and only when it is safe to do so.
It’s also clear that the Australian people are fed up with that approach. They want their leaders to grasp the issues confronting our nation with a firm hand and an iron grip, not with some sweaty-palmed, dead-fish embrace. The terror incident in Melbourne led by a Somali refugee with a string of criminal convictions demonstrates how the system is working against us.
An individual is granted asylum, becomes a criminal, goes back to his oppressive country for some training and then is allowed back into our country. He commits further crimes and is paroled, only to commit an act of terror. There were plenty of opportunities to deport this creature but instead he was allowed to commit a final atrocity.
How can we excuse this approach any longer? If those who seek our assistance aren’t prepared to obey our laws and adopt our values then I don’t want them here. Send them back to wherever they came from.
There’s another seedy element that we don’t want here either - the foreign agents attempting to influence our body politic with money. The ABC’s Four Corners program highlighted just how murky the world of politics and foreign cash has become.
The major parties have accepted millions of dollars from ‘influencers’ bankrolled by the Chinese Communist Party. The money kept flowing even after our top spy agency warned the Liberal, National and Labor parties.
The Four Corners exposé was a damning insight into politics for sale in Australia and casts a huge shadow over many recent decisions including our free trade agreements, foreign investment regime, South China Sea protocol, the lease of the Darwin port and proposed Chinese extradition agreement.
That cloud is caused by Chinese Communist Party cash and it needs to disappear.
Unfortunately, the suggestion is that so many players in mainstream politics have been exposed to the cloud of cash that the major parties cannot be trusted to investigate themselves. If we want to strip away the shield of self-protection that inevitably kicks in when major party politics is involved, the investigation needs to be handled by an independent third party.
Nothing less than a Royal Commission will expose the true extent of foreign influence on Australian politics. It is only that process that will provide the transparency needed to prevent further erosion of confidence in our political system.
I have always been loath to pursue a Royal Commission but it is warranted in what appears to be the systematic attempted corruption of our political system by foreign agents.
Until next week.

Phillipines under siege: ISIS battle plans revealed in leaked video
It’s grainy and low-tech… but the contents are deadly. Get inside a secret meeting of ISIS terrorists plotting the deadly siege of the Philippine city of Marwari… on the back of a monthly calendar. See the startling first-hand video that’s going viral.

This is for people that can actually see ..
Police Caught Staging London Bridge Hoax !!!

Julie Bishop might think twice next time before wanting to get her mug on the telly first and come out saying 'No Australians were hurt in the attacks in London". Stupid woman. Those beautiful Aussies gone, what a loss. Our deep sympathies go to their loved ones.

Theresa May @theresa_may
I'm clear: if human rights laws get in the way of tackling extremism and terrorism, we will change those laws to keep British people safe.

Stupid or Liar ?

“Do you believe that the threat ( sic terrorism ) is being brought in, possibly from Middle Eastern refugees that are coming out to Australia,” Senator Hanson asked him.
ASIO Security Chief responded: “I have absolutely no evidence to suggest there’s a connection between refugees and terrorism.”

That’s NOT what Hanson asked.
She asked – from Middle Eastern refugees…NOT refugees generic.

Sadly, Pauline should have said MUSLIM ( cursed be their name ) refugees ( covers M.E., Africa, Bosnia, Pakistan, Iran etc. )

Our Australian so called Security Chief was playing with semantics.
He knew exactly what she meant and chose to lie.
He’s not stupid but politically devious.
He doesn’t need the $billion security service for advice he only needs to read the newspaper.

Off Topic.......Would like to congratulate Andrew Bolt for having the ticker to defend and stand up for himself when confronted and assaulted by two leftards by landing a punch and a good kick in the nuts on one of the assailants. Pity the second one was not provided with a decent gut churning kick in the nuts as well before the cowardly pair hurriedly departed the scene with their tails between their legs. Nothing wrong with a bit of violence especially when someone is confronted by a couple of arseholes like these and am sorry I wasn't there to see it. GOOD ONYA ANDREW.
