JULIA SURE COULD PICK 'EM

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.

The CFMEU is finally in the spotlight as the Royal Commission tears apart its countless layers of corruption, thuggery, blackmail, bribes, death threats and blackballing. 

The CFMEU is actually a reconstruction of the infamous Builders Labourers Federation (BLF).

Four of Julia Gillard’s many male and female partners were two dickheads and two ruthless union thugs. The two dickheads were Craig Emerson and Tim Mathieson, the two union thugs were Michael O’Connor and Bruce Wilson of the equally infamous AWU.

Michael O’Connor is the CFMEU National Secretary and brother of shadow frontbencher Brendan O’Conner. His dalliance with Gillard began with the Australian Union of Students and they remain close friends today. He, along with Gillard, is an unabashed Communist and close friend of Trotskyist, Paul Howes. 

In her maiden speech to Parliament, Gillard said Michael O'Connor was still her closest confidant: "I would not have reached this place without his support", she said.

Chief CFMEU boss brawler, John Setka, is the master of standover tactics. Melbourne developer Leigh Chiavaroli told the Commission that Setka demanded he employ his friend Anton Sucic and brother-in-law Ivan Dadic as “safety officers”, or he would have Chiavaroli’s $800 million development site shut down. 

Chiavaroli had agreed but said both men were "hardly ever" on the site and overstated the hours they were there, a common AWU tactic that was used by Gillard’s other partner, Bruce Wilson on the Dawesville and other projects in WA.

Leigh’s father, Peter Chiavaroli, said he was told by CFMEU industrial consultant, Ken Hardy he should pay Melbourne gangland identity Mick Gatto $50,000 each time he wanted a problem “fixed” with the union.

In the midst of Gillard’s “misogyny” hysteria her friend Michael O’Connor had arranged for the comedy entertainment at a national CFMEU conference. One of the jokes told by the entertainer was that, “Tony Abbott's chief of staff, Peta Credlin does a good Head job... Abbott calls her the Vacuum Cleaner ‘cos she cleans up his messes”. 

It was reportedly met with howls of laughter from the Labor front bench who were present.

At the same time, Gillard was bravely defending Peter Slipper who had just texted his gay staffer, James Ashby some delightful mollusc jokes about women’s vaginas.

It made Julia’s “misogyny” wailing about as genuine as a Hong Kong $20 Rolex.

And her choice in union men was anything but naive, she was drawn to the excitement of powerful union thugs who were swimming in fraudulent funds and who could interrupt concrete pours with a single phone call. 

She was intoxicated by union power and brutality.

Bill Shorten may well have been another notch on her bed-head had he not been involved in other political front bottom matters at the time.

The Royal Commission is a Liberal witch hunt eh? So far, the only whistle-blowing witnesses to spill their guts have been card carrying members of the Labor Party.

all that is bad will be found to be bad in the hearts of the people who are bad, its not a race human life is discovery , imagine all traffic infringements and other things were perfect what would happen to a police force of 500 thousand in australia including all the kids , the pay roll would stop

To get to become our first female PM, was Gillard, in fact lying down on the job?

I t would appear Gillard and Wilson created the template for this who union/workplace safety scam which has cost industry $Bills over the years. If what is alleged about the AWUWRA with her and Wilson's involvement is true, Gillard has been responsible, in no for the creation of a legal vehicle to extort $Bills out of industry. Lets not forget that the first legal entity to use OWHS as a scam was the Dawseville Cut project and that Gillard used her old Socialist Forum articles of incorporation and Memorandums to cut/paste the constitution of the AWUWRA- this was the genisis for hundreds of such scam organisations. Gillard's wrecking of Australia's economy started long before she entered politics.

She only bunged it on for friends and she never had a enemy in the world.

She had more pricks than a dart-board

The problem also is big-business paying these bribes for industrial peace and to have a commercial advantage. What must be remembered is that the cost of those illegal bribes is passed onto the end-users of the commercial enterprise, big-business don't wear these costs to the bottom line of their profits and therefor you won't see them complaining about it.Thug-unions like the CFMEU, AWU, MEU and their fellow travelers are laughing all the way to their brothels and high-class restaurants.

posters on here in reply l am not defending Gillard in the least...l despise her she has NO class..BUT l think she doesnt have the intelligence...l know she was manipulated..but she doesnt! what she did have was Ambition,arrogance and an unquenchable thirst for power a dangerous combination.......but there are so many more who must also be investigated...............she was a reckless fool!

As a kid going fishing at McGloughlins Beach here in VIC there was always a talking point, being Norm Gallagher's beach house that was paid for out of graft and kickbacks. When I got older I had to join the BLF to be able to work on a local shopping centre. The Union always made sure that there was a "problem" with something on Friday so those from Melbourne could knock off earlier and go home. The ONLY time I've ever been a Union member, thank Christ!

CFMEU - Construction, Forestry, Mining and Energy Union. It's much more appropriate to their activities when you re-arrange the sequence to be Forestry Union and Construction, Mining, Energy.

A DD may well sort the problem . I guess that Australia can stand another couple of years of waste. If only , i'm dreaming , could we offer all Senators a golden handshake of , say $2m. ea. to just vote the Senate defunct and then piss off !! This worked when I was in Commercial Building and a simple brown paper bag , solved all safety issues !! Dreamin' I know .

If it doesn't improve , I see 12 months down the track , a possible DD and there should be more than enough turn around in polls and exposing the problems of the morons in there ...

The bright spot , I hope , is that Joe will refrain from telling Australia to " stick it !!". For goodness sakes , 6 years of ' hard labor ' and now , when the people agree to the LNP plan , another bunch of non representative swill to destroy our country.

...political front bottom matters ... hilarious Larry! Haven't heard that in many years.

And Bill Shorten and the rest of the Union Labor MP's are displaying just how that criminal orgainsation works. Just too dumb to realise how every day, they are illustrating through their media, especially their ABC mouthpiece, who they really represent, not you or me or the general public but the bikies and standover merchants and mostly, themselves.
