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.


David Cameron has apparently decided the Left is the preferred place to be in future. Any British PM worth his salt would have punched Obama’s lights out for threatening Poms with “going to the end of the queue” if they did not vote to stay in the EU.... Extraordinary!

Fancy a bloke who has stuffed everything he has touched telling Europe how to suck eggs... and it’s possible the Poms, because of his arrogance and in the face of Continental Europe’s hordes of illegal immigrants salted with ISIS terrorists, will now vote the other way.

The move to rid the world of sovereign borders to make way for a new world order is an ambition of the loony Left, but the Left never learns, even when its dreams become nightmares.

Hollande and terrorism, Merkel and illegal immigration, Obama and regime change, Gillard and spending, Shorten and negative gearing, Turnbull and treachery, yet the Left never wavers and stands steadfast in its resolve no matter what the damage.

Angela Merkel's Germany is now being sued by hordes of illegals for not providing assistance quickly enough.

Bloody mindedness or ideological commitment, who cares? It’s wrong! I recall like yesterday the new dawn of a European Economic Community (EEC) in 1973. At the time it all made sense, trade wise, but 20 years later its name was changed from the “EEC” to the “European Union” with a communal currency and Brussels given extensive new powers. That was just the start of the decline.

Paedophile and close friend of Jimmy Savile, PM Sir Edward Heath, produced a 1971 White Paper on EEC entry which had promised no “erosion of essential national sovereignty”. Unfortunately European law still over-rides British law, and plenty more of the over-riding is still on the way from Brussels, not to mention the disaster of borderless entry and exit between States with one “European” passport and one currency.

UK media at the time spoke as one in agreement with entry, but it slowly came apart at the seams for Britain as various smaller economies took advantage of the one currency. The UK retained its domestic Sterling but still suffered from a ridiculous single currency when it came to disparate State economies selfishly looking to enjoy the security of Brussels.

The EEC was a grand idea with many problems before it morphed into the EU, the extent of that folly quickly became evident. The EU referendum that Cameron promised is on a knife edge with a “stay in” vote becoming more likely by the day, despite Obama’s threats.

British taxpayers are slugged £1billion per month in dues to Brussels and the bill was recently increased by another £1.7billion but never mind, Brussels is currently “rebating” Cameron to pay for the “stay-in” campaign.

Obama is light-headed over security matters in any forum and as a member of NATO the US is exposed to 28 independent European member States, many of whom are also locked into the EU with terrorism supporter Turkey knocking on the door with provisional EU membership and a demand for a visa waiver.

Bloody hell, aren’t there enough ISIS operatives already transiting through Turkey?

Turkey’s Erdogan has threatened to renege on a landmark agreement to curb illegal migration to the European Union if it isn’t granted visa-free travel to Europe for Turkey's 78 million citizens by this year.

If Ankara gets what it wants as the only Islamic State in the EU it would allow more millions of illegal “migrants” from Africa, Asia and the Middle-East to flow through Turkey into Europe.

"Democracy, freedom and the rule of law.... For us, these words have absolutely no value any longer”, said Erdogan.

If Obama forgives the Saudis for organising 9/11 then the Turks should be able to shoot more of Putin’s air force down with complete impunity and be privy to a future US Administration’s  war plans.

Is it any wonder North Korea can thumb its nose at the US, Iran can break a nuclear agreement and Russia can buzz US warships? Obama’s response is more sanctions... sanctions that only hurt innocent civilians.

Obama’s pacifism is breeding another world war. 

His answer is to wedge Putin into a corner with the corrupt Poroshenko of Ukraine and NATO members to its West and the US, forty mile across the Bering Strait, to its East. Fortunately Putin can run rings around Obama where tactics are concerned.

The end of the Obama era can’t come quickly enough.


Rudd is merely an embarrassing joke to Australians and i suspect the Chinese realise that too.

Peter Dutton sounding very much like an achieving Minister on the Right side. Fluent, congruent, positive and affirmative tone, convincing and with subtle 'warnings' to the troublesome illegals and mercenary people smugglers.,8678

The U.S. Senate is poised to give President Obama and the next president unprecedented war powers that amount to declaring martial law upon the entire world. Majority leader Mitch McConnell surprised almost everyone last week by saying he has a war resolution ready to be voted on at any time.

The resolution is a new authorization for use of military force (AUMF) for declaring war on ISIS. It would give the president even more power than the AUMF granted to Bush after 9/11, which is still in place today.

“The AUMF put forward by McConnell would not restrict the president’s use of ground troops, nor have any limits related to time or geography. Nor would it touch on the issue of what to do with the 2001 AUMF, which the Obama administration has used to attack ISIS despite that authorization’s instructions to use force against those who planned the 9/11 terrorist attacks.”

Considering what Bush and Obama did with the 2001 AUMF—invading and occupying countries in “pre-emptive” war, CIA black sites, extrajudicial killings, inventing the term “enemy combatants” to bypass international law, new forms of torture, drone bombing women and children, and assassinating U.S. citizens—the specter of a new and expanded AUMF is truly frightening.

“This resolution is a total rewrite of the War Powers Clause in the U.S. Constitution,” said Sen. Chris Murphy (D-Conn). “It is essentially a declaration of international martial law, a sweeping transfer of military power to the president that will allow him or her to send U.S. troops almost anywhere in the world, for almost any reason, with absolutely no limitations.”

McConnell’s resolution is more than what Obama asked for last year, but this is of little relevance since Obama has been carrying out a war against ISIS, including the use of special forces, with no authorization. The administration has refused to put forward a legal framework, insisting that the 2001 AUMF is enough.

As the New York Times pointed out, ISIS was created long after 9/11 and is actually a competitor to al Qaida, which means that Obama’s war on ISIS is not justified under the 2001 AUMF. Even members of Congress recognize that current military operations have no legal basis.

“I believe the war is illegal,” said Sen. Tim Kaine. “I don’t think there’s a legal justification for it. And I think the greatest danger we end up doing is allowing the president to wage a war without Congress weighing in.”


So any decision with what to do with these "fakugees" is put off until AFTER the election, talk of dodging his (mt's) duties.. Hasn't got the guts to even make that decision.

The American Mugabe !

Here is the latest documentary produced by Eric Hunt. This is definitely worth watching. Also, check out his website and donate some money to help him continue producing these great documentaries exposing one of the biggest lies foisted upon humanity.

If Churchill or Thatcher were alive today they would have recognised the signs of danger immediately and hastily removed the UK from the EU.

Pier Akerman on his blog wrote ...Turnbull is hysterical at his own cleverness ...and there is no denying he has well and truly stitched up voters......we honourable conservatives have no home base now and despised by Turnbull Textor who has told us we no longer matter . Along with Turnull and his cabal in his govt we have Savva Devine and a chorus of Abbott haters who also have nothing but ridicule for us and our morality we have been cast adrift.

No Rinaldo. I have it on very good authority that Abbott is going to announce something very controversial tonight on Bolt Report 7pm. Make sure you are watching. Over and out Mata Harry.

Well Shotty in Houdini's defence, the same poster DG as it is known howled down many posters using a nom de plume, Rosa 16, Marigold,IE, hadenuff, Lights etc and it berates me without success on regular occasions. You must not have been paying attention to the various incarnations of the DG character to realise what a destructive ratbag it is. I know you rather turn your attention away from such silliness, but when it prays on the vulnerable as mentioned, it deserves to get whatever it gets when karma catches up.

I don't agree with you madmax about Peter Dutton. He is the one stable factor in this farce of a government we have at the moment. The day he is replaced is the day we should start to pick up arms. He is doing a great job and Turnbull knows it. He is irreplaceable that is why he still has his job. I think he is equally as good as Morrison was, in fact I would say he is better as he has had to fight off the likes of the SHY's and all those hangerons like the dam lawyers. Under TA he had these people way in the background, but now look at them all raising their heads. They know Turnbull is soft.

Hooray - Who is that conspired and what exactly is it that needs unravelling or are you just talking nonsense?

Harry you really are a prime example of why we should not give out our personal names. You have been on the receiving end of so much personal abuse since you divulged your name that it makes one wonder why we would put ourselves in the same firing line that you have. I don't even know who that Godbolt person is that you seem to have a problem with, but if you had just stayed using a nom de plume you wouldn't have drawn so much fire. I feel sorry that these people are on your case, but you have opened the door my friend.

That gives me an idea Houdini. I think Abbott is behind the ALA after all. The name really stands for Anthony Liberal Abbott. Another conspiracy theory for Rinaldo and Marco to unravel.

Are you saying that the person behind the site is gutless because he doesn't publish his name Harry? That is a bit rich considering this site is full of people who make comment in anonymity. If you can point to anything that is not correct in the information on that site it would be a better rebuttal that simply laying claim to the author is gutless.

Just found this snippet on the subs. "This could kill the usefulness of Australia’s submarine program, even before the first boat hits the water in the late 2020s". Thirty years before the first one hits the water? Are they so damned difficult to build?

Only problem with that plan madmax is that someone will be voted in regardless. You will probably end up with Labor and Greens running this country. That is a proposal that I could never live with. the brilliant conservative grandee David Flint wrote in the Spectator Australia....Turnbull is a human kleptoparasite....he used TA as a stalking horse doing all the hard work and winning the election....all the while sneering, undermining gathering support and number samong the Liberal Party despicable MPs to stage his coup....then claim all Abbotts achievements for himself to win the election which will give him mandate to do God knows what to Australia as a leftwinger.
