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.


Barack Obama has already lost the House and is likely to lose the Senate as he struggles with foreign policy and domestic debt leading up to the mid-term elections in four weeks’ time. Like Joe Hockey, he has lost weight and passed through 50 shades of grey as he ponders his last two years as a lame duck President.

Like with his friend Julia, a glorious socially-engineered future lay ahead just four short years ago but, as is always the case with all things Left, it crumbled in decay leaving incoming conservatives to once again spend hard-won political capital cleaning up an unholy mess.

But the sins of Obama are far greater than those of Julia. He must leave the TV off as a host of foreign failures are typified by a small town on the Syrian/Turkish border that is defending itself unaided, fighting for its very existence in the face of Islamic State terrorists. 

He must know these townspeople are simple folk. A dad working at a local grainstore, a mum working part time while grandma walks the three kids to and from school. 

A vegetable garden is out the back where tomatoes and spinach are exchanged for goats’ milk with a neighbour. Where an olive tree is due to bear its first fruit in one year’s time.

On weekends dad works on his model aeroplanes while mum sews clothes, grandma crochets shawls and the kids play hopscotch with their friends on the road. But not this coming weekend.

This weekend the kids will be screaming with their hands over their ears while Islamic State rockets explode around all around them. 

Dad and mum will be guarding broken windows with vintage rifles. They will have no ammunition left but will fight to the death anyway because that will be their only option, there is nowhere else to go. 

East and west are other similar towns under siege. South is the rampaging Islamic State and on a hill, 500 metres to the north, is their arch enemy the Turks, manning 100 tanks and enjoying a dress circle view of the onslaught. 

The superbly well-armed Turks are motionless, they would rather see an Islamic State victory than a Kurdish enclave near their border... then the coalition can deal with the Islamic State.

The family’s relatives far to the east had been gassed by Saddam Hussein years before and the Kurdish Peshmerga soldiers and other ethnic groups have been sandwiched between the Turks and the Iraqis, fighting for their treasured independence.

The West’s quasi ally, Turkey, a member of NATO, a G20 member and attendee shortly in Brisbane, will watch the coming slaughter of this family and not lift a finger to help. 

The coalition of five Arab States will not assist either, their interest in this fight is one of total self. Neither will the US assist, nor its allies, they seem happy vaporising utes with $1.5 million Tomahawk missiles from a safe 30,000 feet.

No, in the next few days this family will watch in horror as five or six Islamic State fighters burst into their house.

Grandma will immediately be shot and left to bleed out in the corner of the lounge room. 

Then they will tie up mum and dad and make both watch the repeated rape of their trembling kids. If the children are still alive after that, they will try not to watch dad’s decapitation before mum is repeatedly gang raped and shot in the back of the head.

Sleep well Barack, you bastard.


I'm watching the Russians and Assad. I sincerely hope they have the tenacity to do what Obama and the Coalition have utterly failed to do. Obama is a closet Muslim and wants this to happen. He is a mongrel of the first order....

Paul Craig Roberts

I have come to the conclusion that the West is a vast lie machine for the secret agendas of vested interests. Consider, for example, the Transatlantic Trade and Investment Partnership and the Transpacific Trade and Investment Partnership.

These so-called “partnerships” are in fact vehicles by which US corporations make themselves immune to the sovereign laws of foreign countries in which they do business. A sovereign country that attempts to enforce its laws against an American corporation can be sued by the corporation for “restraint of trade.” For example, if Monsanto wants to sell GMO seeds in France or US corporations wish to sell genetically-modified foods in France, and France enforces its laws against GMOs, the Transatlantic Trade Partnership allows France to be sued in jurisdictions outside the courts of France for “restraint of trade.” In other words, preventing the entry into France of a prohibited product constitutes restraint of trade.

This is the reason that the US has insisted that the Transatlantic and Transpacific Partnerships be totally secretive and negotiated outside the democratic process. Not even the US Congress has been permitted knowledge of the negotiations.

Obviously, the Europeans and Asians who are agreeing with the terms of these “partnerships” are the bought-and-paid-for agents of the US corporations. If the partnerships go through, the only law in Europe and Asia will be US law. The European and Asian government officials who agree to the hegemony of US corporations over the laws of their countries will be so handsomely paid that they could enter the realm of the One Percent.

It is interesting to compare the BBC’s coverage (October 10) with that of RT (October 11). The BBC reports that the aim of the Transatlantic Partnership is to remove “barriers to bilateral commerce” and to stimulate more trade and investment, economic growth and employment. The BBC does not report that the removal of barriers includes barriers against GMO products.

Everyone knows that the European Commission is corrupt. Who would be surprised if its members hope to be enriched by the American corporations? Little wonder the European Commission declared that concerns that the Transatlantic partnership would impact the sovereignty of countries is misplaced.

RT, which is restrained in reporting truth because it operates inside the US, still manages to come to the point in its headline: “No TTIP: Mass protests slam US-EU trade deal as ‘Corporate power grab’.”

All over Europe people are in the streets in mass rallies against secret agreements by their corrupt governments for Washington to take over their lives and businesses. RT reports that “social networks have been mobilized for a mass campaign that has been calling on Europeans and Americans to take action against ‘the biggest corporate power grab in a decade’.”

RT quotes a leader of the demonstration in Berlin who says the secret agreements “give corporations more rights they’ve ever had in history.” As we all know, corporations already have too many rights.

“Protests are planned in 22 countries across Europe–marches, rallies and other public events–in over 1,000 locations in UK, France, Germany, Italy, Spain, Greece, Netherlands, Poland, The Czech Republic and Scandinavian countries.”

Did you hear about this latest American corporate power grab from Fox “News,” CNN, New York Times, London Times, ABC? Of course not. Did you hear about the massive protests against it? Of course not. You only hear what the interest groups permit you to hear.

RT reports that the main aim of the international protests is “to reclaim democracy” and to put an end to the secret deals that are destroying life for everyone but the American corporations, organizations now regarded worldwide as the epitome of evil.

These phony “trade agreements” are advocated as “free trade removal of tariffs,” but what they remove are the sovereignties of countries. America is already ruled by corporations. If these faux “trade agreements” go through, Europe and Asia will also be ruled by American corporations.

A few hundred thousand people are about to learn just how phony Obama’s Big Lie was, as the magnitude of the next ObamaCare insurance cancellation wave becomes clear. Fox News reports that Wal-Mart’s big announcement this week was just the tip of the iceberg:

More than a dozen states plan to cancel health care policies not in compliance with ObamaCare in the coming weeks, affecting thousands of people just before the midterm elections.

“It looks like several hundred thousand people across the country will receive notices in the coming days and weeks,” said Jim Capretta of the Ethics and Public Policy Center.

The policies are being canceled because states that initially granted a reprieve at the request of President Obama are no longer willing to do so.

In coming weeks, 13 states and the District of Columbia plan to cancel such policies, which generally fall out of compliance with the Affordable Care Act because they don’t offer the level of coverage the law requires.

Virginia will be hardest hit, with 250,000 policies expected to be canceled.

And because federal law requires a 60-day notice of any plan changes, voters will be notified no later than November 1, right before the Nov. 4 midterms.

Many of those forced out of their current plans and into ObamaCare may not be able to keep their doctors. They also could face higher deductibles and out-of-pocket expenses, making ObamaCare an election issue on the eve of voting.

Perhaps, although methinks this analysis is underestimating the impact of early voting and absentee ballots. Quite a few people are going to stuff their absentee ballots into the mail one day, and receive their ObamaCare insurance cancellation notice the next.

Also, this is not the same nation it was when Barack Obama took office; a diminished America of low expectations and zero government accountability has become grimly accustomed to this sort of thing. Democrats can hope the public’s dislike of ObamaCare has already been “priced in” to the election – they already know Obama lied about being able to keep your plan if you liked it, and they’ve had some time to deal with it. As long as they don’t get angry enough to trigger the kind of sustained multi-election wave it would take to repeal the program, their disapproval is irrelevant – that’s what it means when your liberty is taken away.

And it will be two years before a new President might sign a repeal bill, which is two more years for the budget-busting program to armor itself politically behind dependents. Storming a legislative fortress requires a significant advantage in numbers, so even if the people who dislike ObamaCare dramatically outnumber its beneficiaries, Democrats calculate that the odds won’t tip enough in repeal’s favor to make it happen.

The people who lose insurance plans they liked will be expected to suck it up in silence; the media certainly isn’t going to spotlight them. Barack Obama and the other politicians and think-tankers responsible for this disaster will not have to face them. The designated losers will be told the cost and inconvenience visited upon them is a small price to pay for the benefits delivered to the designated winners, who will receive all the attention. That’s how the game is played with this most callous of reforms. Even the most watered-down of “good news,” far below the promises made four years ago, are good enough to be hailed as a “success”… provided the bad news, from canceled policies and elevated premiums, to lost doctor access and delirious levels of government spending, is completely ignored.

What’s wrong with ObamaCare long ago went beyond miscalculations, unexpected consequences, and unforeseen complications. If it was a private-sector enterprise, it would long ago have been torn apart for breach of contract in courts. Since it’s a government boodoggle, the only court hearing will be on Election Day, and you’ll have to render a pretty stunning verdict to keep the defense from claiming a victory. The people actually holding cancellation notices in their hands in November probably won’t be enough. It’s time to find out if the American people retain a sense of civic responsibility.

It is not the Gay/Elite/sock Puppet who is the problem, the secret deal to slaughter 160,000 Kurds was made by the US/SAUDI ARABIA/TURKEY/IRAN. Read and weep. I hope they all rot in heel for eternity.

In Conclusion

ISIS has all of the marks of a CIA-sponsored jihadist group, created to facilitate war abroad and repression at home. Whether we look at the “divide and conquer” history of the Middle-East or the suspicious details regarding ISIS and the repercussions of its existence in the Western world, one can easily see how ISIS is a continuation of an obvious pattern. The most important question one can ask is this: Who benefits from the existence of ISIS and the terror it generates? What does ISIS gain by creating videos taunting the most powerful armies in the world? Air strikes? On the other hand, what does the ruling class in the Western world have to gain? Continuing to make money through war and weapons, taking control of the Middle East while supporting Israel, increasing oppression and surveillance on domestic populations and, finally, keeping the masses constantly terrified and under control.

In short, stoking panic around the world by provoking a state of chaos in the Middle East has been deemed necessary to implement a new world order. ‘Isis’, the Egyptian goddess and mother of Horus, is the name of the one of the most important figures for the Masonic elite . Their motto? Ordo ab Chao … Order out of Chaos.

Courageous as they might be you cannot fight a 20th century war with 19th century weapons.................and there hangs the shame of west government....particularly USA........who were quick to arm the Syrian fighting with ISIL.

Or all of the above!

All our information comes from another source. One can plagiarize, cut and paste, give an opinion on the source or merely tell untruths. If the above words are lies, then prove it.

You blame Obummer, but the real criminals are the UN. Is in not their patch? The UN is more interested in prising money from you with the lie of Anthropogenic climate change. The UN need to step in now with peacekeepers and stop this slaughter.

BTW Rinaldo, even now a small number of of muslim 'scholars concede that all the lands they now squat on may have belonged to the Jews...............before Mo began his campaign of rape, murder and pillage!

Oi! Beagle! Go back and read Rinaldo's posts on various topics.....mostly cut and paste from sources who assume, speculate, fabricate or downright lie! I suspect if you could trace the 'sources' back even further a larger picture, or should I say agenda, might be revealed.

So, the only thing you REALLY know is cut and paste

OhBummer is the WORST Commander in Chief since GeoW.

Oh Bummer...... We are STUFFED.

sorry couldn't read it....The link is broken I think or the site is down

I am deeply disturbed after reading that there are abattoirs in Australia that kill cattle the halal way, the animals throats are cut while still alive, no stunning is used. it makes me sick to my stomach that our government allows this. what do others think.

I didn't expect OBAMA to be any different. Lets face it he is closet Islam and has Allah to pray to for absolution. The only absolution he should get is when he faces the Tribunal for Crimes Against Humanity, because HE is involved. Doing NOTHING is a crime.

The US don't care too much for ground troops in Mid East as it now no longer needs its oil imported or it's oil supplies secured there as Obama has BS the world with using less oil for action on climate change for his administration has done the complete opposite and ramped up local oil production more than any country in the world. Obama has opened more public lands to drilling than any other president, has (twice) reversed the moratorium on Atlantic drilling, has sped up the process of permit approval, etc.etc.
Obama has moved heaven and earth to maximize natural gas exports. A Good article putting aside their climate change waffle but exposes what oil baron Obama and co have become.


FBI Director: We Can't Stop Americans Fighting With ISIS From Re-Entering on U.S. Passports

Katie Pavlich | Oct 06, 2014

Two weeks ago the FBI and Homeland Security released a memo warning Americans about lone-wolf terror attacks inside the United States. For months lawmakers have expressed concern about Americans fighting with ISIS overseas re-entering the U.S. using their passports, which according to the State Department, have not been revoked. According to Democrat Rep. Tim Bishop, at least 40 ISIS fighters have already returned and are being tracked by the FBI.

Now in an interview with 60 Minutes, FBI Director James Comey is warning an attack inside the U.S. from the Al Qaeda linked Khorosan group could happen "very very soon" and said that stopping Americans fighting with ISIS or other extremist groups in the middle east from coming home is pretty much impossible.

From the Daily Mail:

The interviewer Scott Pelley asks: 'How many Americans are fighting in Syria on the side of the terrorists?'

'In the area of a dozen or so,' Comey replied.

'Do you know who they are?'

Comey answers: 'Yes.'

Pelley then pressed: 'Each and every one of them?'

'I think of that, dozen or so, I do. I hesitate only because I don't know what I don't know,' Comey said.

He said: 'Ultimately, an American citizen, unless their passport's revoked, is entitled to come back. So, someone who's fought with ISIL, with American passport wants to come back, we will track them very carefully.'

When U.S. airstrikes against ISIS targets started on September 24, Khorosan was also targeted in northern Syria. The Obama administration argued the group was planning an imminent attack on the U.S.

Republican Senator Ted Cruz introduced legislation last month that would have stripped Americans known to be fighting with ISIS of their U.S. passports. That legislation was voted down.

Thanks for those links Rinaldo. I have never believed that Obama does not know what he is doing. He has caused absolute chaos across the world. Many muslims regard him as "one of us". As for Tony Abbott, he has not yet apologised for this disgraceful way he took down Pauline Hanson and helped get her into jail. She was exhibiting free speech. Tony Abbott now breaks the promise on 18C which is against free speech. The two go together to show that Abbott is not a friend of free speech in Australia.
