If you would like to be involved or support the upkeep and further development of this site, it would be very welcome no matter how small.


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.


She has wheat dust in her veins, red Mallee dust in her hair, calluses on her palms and a Mallee root for a heart. I have made no secret of my political admiration for her. She is the one person who could not only win any Liberal seat but would unseat the disastrous Turnbull as Leader in a heartbeat, and do it with a long-term success that is rarely seen in the Liberal Party. But she should not contest Bennelong as it would appear to be a “me too” move.

                                                           Certain to be aced

There is little doubt, in my opinion, that Kristina Keneally will take Bennelong from John Alexander, and quite handily. 

              The old powerbroking crooks Keneally will need to distance herself from

Keneally was elected NSW State Labor leader as a sacrificial lamb going into an unwinnable State election. Maxine McKew, another media far Lefty from the ABC, took the Bennelong seat from PM Howard and lasted one term in an uninspiring performance before tennis champ John Alexander regained it for the Libs in 2010, held it again in 2013, and once again in 2016 despite Turnbull’s loss of all that Abbott had gained. 

Alexander has not managed any sort of promotion during his unspectacular tenure.

                  Devilishly politically cunning, she got Mark Latham sacked from Fox

A protege of crooks, Eddie Obeid and Joe Tripodi, Keneally will need to overcome an association with the worst NSW Labor could offer in terms of corruption. It is widely known that Keneally accepted the poison chalice of Premier with the permission of, and at the behest of, Eddie Obeid. She is arguably smart enough to extricate herself from her gaoled former Party and Cabinet crooks.

Peta Credlin has so far refused to publicly entertain a tilt at politics but I detect a glint of stimulus stirring in her eyes when it’s mentioned. The Left media are promoting the Stick Insect as a Turnbull alternative... hmmm you can't get dumber than the frying pan into the fire scenario! 

But it would be fascinating if a retiring Tony Abbott was offered the Chief of Staff’s role in Credlin's office. 

Bennelong is not a safe seat of any colour. It is widely cosmopolitan with a high Chinese component and has more than its fair share of latte sippers and gangrenous Greens. 

Alexander has worked hard to keep a ten per cent margin over Labor. That margin will be lost to Keneally’s charisma, media profile and GetUp guile.

Without the magnetic talent of Credlin the end for Turnbull is nigh,

…and the Party with him.  


It would be nice if Credlin ran in Trumbles seat of Wentworth.

Pyne likes Gay Porn!!! "I've been hacked"!! I'm a fixer, I'm a fixer"! Yeah right, like he wasn't pissed celebrating his gay win!!

Government is a religion - whoever makes your laws, that is your God
To combine Christianity with paganism is known as “syncretism”, meaning to combine two religions that oppose one another. A Scriptural example is found in 2 Kings 17:24-41 of people who attempted to worship the LORD alongside their pagan deities:
“And the statutes, and the ordinances, and the law, and the commandment, which He wrote for you, ye shall observe to do for evermore; and ye shall not fear other gods. And the covenant that I have made with you ye shall not forget; neither shall ye fear other gods. But the Lord your God ye shall fear; and He shall deliver you out of the hand of all your enemies. Howbeit they did not hearken, but they did after their former manner. So these nations feared the Lord, and served their graven images, both their children, and their children's children: as did their fathers, so do they unto this day.” (2 Kings 17:37-41, KJV)

Thanks Lady P. I suppose a stiletto could cause an injury. :))

Golly surprise surprise

Natural law! Glad you mentioned it. In the natural laws of nature it's takes a male and a female to procreate, and no amount of scientific fiddling can get away from the fact that to create a living embryo you need an ova from a female and sperm from a male. The natural law of Evolution is not headed toward SS procreation. Nature does not give a stuff about laws made by man - even gay ones.

Rights naturally conferred

Janet Albrechtsen touched on a most profound area of political life when she referred to Tim Wilson’s distinction between universal human rights and civil rights (“Forget hurt feelings, free speech is a birthright”, 15/11).

That distinction was implicit in the 1776 Declaration of Independence although it declared that people had inalienable rights conferred on them by natural rights.

The problem with Albrechtsen’s analysis is that by characterising rights as human rights, they meet that criterion by being applicable to a human being. Natural rights, on the other hand, are teleological, and are the rights of all men that promote mankind’s natural end or purpose. Natural rights imply a moral criterion that, when secured by law, promote the happiness of all men.

Her thoughtfulness comes too late to have any influence on the SSM debate. Had it come earlier and referenced natural rights, it would implicitly have shown why SSM was destructive of the natural purpose of mankind and hence not a natural right, such as traditional marriage.

Late night Television so many Politicians were making comment on our Illustrious TURDBALL. Everyone of them said that he has no control over the backbench.That he will be remembered for not being able to unite the parties and his policy failures. If this is so WHY hasn't there been a call for TURDBALL to resign.These were senior Liberal Party Members.The way they talked TURDBALL was linked to the Likes of Kevin 07 JuLIAR all but "LOOSER" words that were spoken. They also stated at the moment TURDBALL GOVERNMENT would rather give the Election Away rather than admit he and they got it wrong.If this is the case why Haven't the Leaders of the Liberal/National Party given thought for the Australian Taxpaying Voter present and past.

New post up. Photo alert. Wear dark glasses. Very dark.

The institution of marriage is fucked in this country and others that have legalised ssm. If Mrs Pepper and I were to get married today we would give our vowes to each other without ceremony. We would be binding our lives to one another and not call it 'marriage'. We would not give the queers and poofters the satisfaction of thinking they are equal to our love and commitment.

If this FAG legislation is passed, by the current group of very doubtful eligible politicians ( dual citizens ), surely there would be grounds for an appeal to the Courts, re its legality ? Or will the Turd and Shortass have conspired together, as they have obviously done so all along, to close that avenue down ?

Starting today you will start to feel the sting in the Scorpions tail, the yes voters will now start to find out exactly what they have actually voted for. You voted for a Legislation that has not been released yet, just wait for the Senate to start today.

Yep the Turd now riding high mounted on his good steed Abbott who made the vote possibly, the next poll will see the Turd numbers up a bit waving his arms about and sinking the spurs into Abbott ribs ,but it will be short lived as he cant plug the good steed into the grid as their is no power ,Loosey trying to mount the insect with no luck

"No man can serve two masters: for either he. will hate the one, and love the other; or else. he will hold to the one, and despise the other. Ye cannot serve God and mammon.'

A Leonarda da Vinci painting has just been auctioned off by Christies in New York for US$400 MILLION

Highest price ever paid for a painting and the only da Vinci painting that was held in private ownership.

Originally thought that the painting would go for around US$100 Million.

SSM nearly sorted. Voluntary euthanasia next?

Sadly, it's happening everywhere dusty. Those boys don't look to convinced by the forceful teacher. Maybe there's hope.

If they could Hack/Hijack the Defense Ministers phone, perhaps they Hacked the SSM Survey too........They need only check the phone and see the usage just before and after the message was sent..Any Teenager can show you how to do it....He recons he was Asleep at the time, so if there is No other phone usage around that time, that would sort it out pretty quickly....But I would bet, the first thing he has done was delete the lot....Hindering the investigation into how the Defence Ministers phone was Hijacked..This is a Serious Incident in more ways than one.......Now if it comes out that he DID look at the Homosexual Porn, he has now also Lied about the event, which means his position is untenable....
