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.


It was 1971 and I was working for the Melbourne Herald and Weekly Times when Britain first gave notice that it was about to join the EEC in 1973. It was then The European Economic Community, and two years after joining in 1975 PM Harold Wilson needed reassurance of the wisdom of such a move with a UK referendum. It was duly passed.

That the Brits could join Continental Europe was unthinkable… most Australians saw it with trepidation and as a treasonous abdication by the motherland.

Sure enough, as with all things Left, the EEC proved to be far more sinister than a mere economic cartel. Slowly yet surely it became the European Union with all its Stateless communistic structures and borderless mayhem. It took Britain almost a half century to understand its own awful mistake.

Now Britain's far Left want yet another Brexit vote until the stupid poms can get it right.

The unelected EU had set itself up as a new world order to be administered from Belgium where ISIS had also claimed its Islamic European base at the behest and finance of Saudi Arabia with its Grand Mosque in the centre of Brussels.

                             Some fools will remain on the wrong side of history

I am still scratching my head as to how any sensible European could believe that one single currency could operate in such diverse economic States as those of Europe. It’s a Communist imperative that the weaker States must always take advantage of the stronger ones. In return weaker States will be forced to shoulder more than their fair share of unchecked Islamic immigration.

It all appeared to be working well for a while but now it is showing its threadbare fabric.

In 1949 NATO was born as a bulwark against the evil USSR. Yet it was Russia that stormed Berlin to end Hitler’s idea of a new Europe. It was Russia that lost more lives than any other nation and it was Russia that was the Shangri La of the West’s Left where every Union boss worth his salt made pilgrimage at least once to return with fresh ideas of collectivisation.

The signing of the Treaty of Versailles in Paris by the Allied Powers at the end of World War I was virtually without German participation. Much of what was left of Germany was cut up and distributed to France, Poland and Belgium. All German colonies were given to France, Japan and Britain.

War reparation costs were so onerous that all agreed such huge sums could never actually be repaid. But it was not just the permanent crippling of Germany’s economy that mattered, it was the sanctions on any material that could be imported to rebuild its armed forces. Germany was in such a hopeless corner that it allowed Hitler to become Fuhrer of Germany and wage World War II.

Funny how the worm turns because now its NATO and the EU, led largely by Germany, that are doing the exact same thing to Russia. And if you think Russia doesn’t want a return to the old USSR you haven’t been watching.

Japan rose in the face of similar sanctions... why don't we respect history?

Putin will be competing with Turkey for all of Georgia and probably for a start, the Baltic States, Azerbaijan and the prize jewel of Bulgaria. Yet Turkey is a member of bloody NATO FFS. But there will be no red buttons pushed by any major power. Putin is confined to do what all countries now do and use cyber activity to attempt to unsettle opposing world democracies.

The savage vilification of Russia by the Left is astounding… the nerve agent Novichock must have been administered by Russians because it’s a Russian named poison? Why then was not Arsenic administered by the Italians because it’s a Latin named poison. Bloody hell!

The Left forgets to mention that a referendum determined Russia’s annexation of Crimea… it wasn't illegal as they say, almost 80 per cent approved of it. Russians are fervently patriotic and Putin has a right to battle in South Eastern Ukraine for land access to his warm water Navy base that Kiev is denying him with the EU’s encouragement. 

What would the US do if Hawaii and Guam were denied access by North Korea?

Putin doesn't complain much but now Russia is ‘prosecuting’ the Ukrainian Constitutional Court for finding its annexation of Crimea was illegal.

Trump understands this and he is the one person who could solve this European mess. He clearly can have a dozen balls in the air at the same time and his Summit with Putin has implications far deeper than the Left can conceive of. It could even lead to the US threatening to pull out of NATO, and that’s exactly what Putin desperately wants, why wouldn’t he?

Europe is now coming apart at the seams anyway, mainly due to the influence of Angela Merkel. European bureaucrats, along with America’s progressive Left, see Trump as a passing anomaly but Trump is smarter than they give him credit for. He possesses common dog fuck to the extent I have only known one other person to have… my life-long friend John Singleton.   

The dumb Democrats are insisting Trump cancel this Putin Summit.

Britain’s PM, David Cameron, voted to remain in the EU and he resigned because he had no heart for administering Brexit, and the current PM Theresa May voted to “remain” also, so it appears she has no ovaries for the defence of Britain and wants to craft a “soft” Brexit which means the UK would largely remain in the grip of a dysfunctional Europe overrun by Islamic Jihadists.

Much like our PM Turnbull who has no stomach for cheap coal and wants a renewal of the carbon tax. Hmmm, he must have voted for the Greens.

                                           Both will be gone soon, thank Christ.

If a nation’s agencies are allowed to survive without regular Spring cleaning, they always become dysfunctional Left wing bureaucracies wallowing in their own sewage. Agencies like our ABC, SBS, the CSIRO, and five disjointed security agencies, DFAT, the public service and thousands of QUANGOs.

Australia is desperately in need of its own Trump.   


John Swinton - Yes, He Said It, But...

".........One night, probably in 1880, John Swinton, then the preeminent New York journalist, was the guest of honour at a banquet given him by the leaders of his craft. Someone who knew neither the press nor Swinton offered a toast to the independent press. Swinton outraged his colleagues by replying:
"There is no such thing, at this date of the world's history, in America, as an independent press. You know it and I know it.
"There is not one of you who dares to write your honest opinions, and if you did, you know beforehand that it would never appear in print. I am paid weekly for keeping my honest opinion out of the paper I am connected with. Others of you are paid similar salaries for similar things, and any of you who would be so foolish as to write honest opinions would be out on the streets looking for another job. If I allowed my honest opinions to appear in one issue of my paper, before twenty_four hours my occupation would be gone.
"The business of the journalists is to destroy the truth, to lie outright, to pervert, to vilify, to fawn at the feet of mammon, and to sell his country and his race for his daily bread. You know it and I know it, and what folly is this toasting an independent press?
"We are the tools and vassals of rich men behind the scenes. We are the jumping jacks, they pull the strings and we dance. Our talents, our possibilities and our lives are all the property of other men. We are intellectual prostitutes."

Putin reportedly tells Netanyahu: "Israel's concern about Iran in Syria must be postponed until terrorism totally defeated"
".................Sources within the Syrian leadership said the Russian President "was clear with the Israeli Prime Minister that discussion of his concerns are postponed until the dossier related to terrorism is closed". "If terrorists hide in an Israeli controlled area (the occupied Golan Heights) we (Russia and its allies) will eliminate them one by one", said the source.

"Lawmakers eye possible new leads after hearing with FBI attorney"
"Lawmakers from the House judiciary and oversight and reform committees questioned Page in a closed-door hearing Monday, during which they said they obtained new leads to follow in the Justice Department's Russia investigation.
Committee member Rep. Steve King, R-Iowa, wrote a letter to the panel's leaders Monday requesting they subpoena additional information.
"She's certainly more cooperative than Peter Strzok was and the pieces of information filled in some blanks along the way, but we've got a huge jigsaw puzzle to put together," King wrote."
"Rep. Mark Meadows, R-N.C., chairman of the House Freedom Caucus, said some answers given by Page Monday were interesting because they offered new information or contradicted other statements from witnesses.
Rep. John Ratcliff, R-Texas, said Page offered lawmakers "plausible answers" and "plausible explanations," unlike Thursday's highly contentious hearing when Strzok was confronted by lawmakers about his messages.
"In many cases, she admits that the text messages mean exactly what they say, as opposed to Agent Strzok, who thinks that we've all misinterpreted his own words on any text message that might be negative," Ratcliff said."

We will all know if Trumble is going to back a few coal fired stations so we can keep warm ......Just watch for when his son to dump his Renewable's portfolio....

Why is the media laser pointer focusing on Russia?

Because the real culprit is China.

(And they don't want you to know that.)

FBI: Lisa Page Dimes Out Top FBI Officials During Classified House Testimony; Bureau Bosses Covered Up Evidence China Hacked Hillary’s Top Secret Emails

The Turnbull Plan ..... say what we want to hear, before the by-elections, get reelected on those implied faux promises then do a Gillard “there will be no carbon tax in a government I lead” it’s that simple people and we are going to fall for this charlatan .... again. Then watch his true nature really emerge. If we want the LNP to be reelected without Turnbull the secret is Wentworth and for about 15-20 thousand former Liberal voters to cast an invalid ballot and this man will be gone from our shores before the new Parliament is sworn in. Who will be the PM? The LNP can decide that once Turnbull is gone. And relax it won't be any of his acolytes. Any comments?
