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.


It won’t need Senate approval, it will not affect business or consumer confidence, it will reduce the deficit and it’s not before time. The obesity is chronic and it should have been Joe Hockey’s first target rather than pensioners, motorists and sick people.

The prospect of higher employment figures resides with small business and not, as Bill Shorten suggests, with heavily unionised corporations who are losing jobs quicker than the ALP’s NSW Right.

Gillard encouraged part-time employment in the Public Service to flatter employment figures (one job meant two or more employees) but when the goodies were due to be handed out, like the PPL, sabbaticals, sick pay and holidays the part-timers were quickly reinstated to full-timers only to return to part-time once the taxpayers' funds were safely in the bank. 

Over half Australia’s workforce is embedded in the Public Service, Public Service related Agencies and thousands of single-interest QUANGOS (quasi-autonomous non-governmental organisations). 

All have quietly exploded under successive Labor administrations, they depend to varying degrees on Government handouts and it’s no secret that those who work for the Government vote Labor. 

The waste and duplication is prodigious.

When the Abbott Government first took Office it was feared that Joe Hockey would take the easy way out and target the easy marks when looking for a surplus. But he did exactly that and now, after blowing all that political capital, he has returned to where he should have started.

The MYEFO is due this coming week and it won’t be pretty. This time Joe should plan how to sell a different budget, and blunting Shorten’s predictable and puerile one-liners should be part of that plan. 

Joe Hockey's first attempt at defending budgetary reform was woeful and amateurish only because it was steeped in Conservative doctrine rather than an understanding of what's politically possible.


seems the libs have cornered the market for collapsed souffles with phoney their latest concoction, compared with the foul offal leftoids.

One positive aspect of the siege is for Tony Abbott that he is not on the front page in the Press .

Filthy Muslims call Jews pigs, apes and dogs. They do this while killing innocent people and when Israelis are curing diseases. It's all very silly.

The trouble with posts like this is that they conveniently forget why Labor received their lowest primary vote in a century at the last election.

If anyone wants reminding, there is a comprehensive Google Doc that summaries (with references from reliable news sources) the extraordinary list of issues that resulted from six years of Labor. Those issues continue to plague Australia to this day, and unfortunately they will continue to plague us for years to come.

The document is titled "Before you vote Labor in 2013...", and can be read here:

It will remain there as a reminder to all ... forever.

Money well spent.

Equaliser, I think you mean to say the present parliament is unfit to govern.

Most of this government is Howard's, so they have form, TE. Do you have any suggestions or just partisan ridicule?

OMG, let's open the floodgates again. Are you mad?

Who is any better ?

The situation in Europe is making it clear to all but the most brainwashed that something historical is taking place.

What is happening is that the criminal element at the very top of the Western power structure, especially at the very top of the financial system, has been cut off from their money printing machine.

As a result, the IMF and the major European and US money center banks are insolvent. No amount of lying or paper shuffling or propaganda is going to hide this fundamental truth.

The governments of,




•Italy etc.

...know that the debts they supposedly owe to bankers were created through fraudulent book entries and thus do not have to be repaid.

That is why the banks suddenly announced that Greece only had to pay back 50% of their debt even though such a write off would destroy them. They are hoping for a tax payer bail-out that is just not going to happen.

It is game over. The Rothschild banking nightmare is ending.

Even the highly brainwashed priesthood known as Western financial gurus and journalists are starting to realize that something is not right. The big announcement by European governments of a “solution” to the Greek and Euro crises is a case in point. If you analyze the announcement you realize that essentially the banks and governments are saying the banks will pay for 50% of the Greek debt with money they do not have.

The governments say they will pay for it by “leveraging” the money they already have. They do not say who is going to be dumb enough to finance a bankrupt gambler who wants to quadruple his risk.

Please note that as soon as the “solution” to the crisis was announced, high level begging missions were sent to Asia, including French President Sarkozy. Why would they need to go to Asia to ask for money if they had come up with a solution?

The IMF, supposedly the world’s “lender of last resort” is also continuing to admit they have no money. The reason is that the IMF itself cannot prove that its money comes from legitimate sources.

The fact of the matter is that the criminal part of the world’s financial system is falling apart.

•The IMF will soon cease to be solvent.

•The same is true of the World Bank.

•The BIS is also in trouble.

In fact, the entire Rothschild banking monopoly is in deep trouble.

The freeze of “trading platforms” remains in place, meaning that the controllers of the fiat system can no longer pump new money into the system. The best they can do is reshuffle money that is already in the system.

New money will only start entering the global financial system once the new asset-backed system is in place.

“The IMF and the World Bank existed to force the Rothschild banking system on the countries of the world,” is how an extremely senior Chinese official explained the situation.

“Our goal is to reboot the system, to start over and set all the parameters in a fair way so that all countries benefit from the pooled assets of the people of the world and not just Europe and North America,” he continued.

The original system was meant to have been run by the Swiss and protected by the Americans, he continued.

“The basic failure was that the system of checks and balances failed and the people who were supposed to protect the system ended up abusing it,” he added.

What is now going to happen is that the 100 countries that have so far joined the new system started in Monaco in August, are going to implement the new system in four stages, according to a White Dragon Society source.

The US military and agencies will be involved in this process right from the beginning, he added. Efforts to intimidate generals by using corrupt institutions like the IRS to try to repossess their homes will backfire and lead to criminal prosecutions.

The first step will be a lawsuit that will be filed before November 15th against the individuals and groups who abused the Federal Reserve Board system. This will lead to liens being placed against many of the largest financial institutions in the world, according to the filers.

There will also be mass arrests. The other steps have yet to be disclosed.

However, some basic truths are already known.

•First of all, all honest businessmen and bankers worldwide will have nothing to worry about.

•Second of all, the money created through derivatives fraud will be eliminated from the books, even if that means bankrupting many of the big Western financial institutions.

•Third, major historical financial injustices will be addressed and stolen monies and assets will be returned to their rightful owners.

This will be good news for the vast majority of Western citizens as well as the inhabitants of long exploited regions like Africa.

The international banking and payment settlements systems will remain in place after the reboot. This will mean the minimum possible disruption to legitimate business.

However, as mentioned earlier, the international institutions set up and controlled by a small group of Western oligarchs after World War 2 will be totally revamped.

You are talking about interest paid on bonds not actual debt racked up by borrowing from others like the World Bank etc ?

Can a conservative vote for Abbott's coalition next time around? Hmmm, that's tricky but the answer is "surely not". To tick the Tony box would mean a tacit approval of increased income tax on success. It would mean that you are OK with $200m in tax take being handed to communists at the UN or $1 Billion every year donated to communists at the ABC. And stealing from achievers to support the division of Australians by race whilst splurging billions on "climate". It would mean that we agree that IR is best dealt with by ex-trade union hacks at Fair Work and that Islam is faultless in Islamic fundamentalist mayhem. And what conservative would subscribe to the view that Whitlam and Shorten are great and patriotic Australians? Where did our conservative party go and what does one do now?

I saw on the list Defence Force housing, I lived in a D.F. house and paid rent as would the housing commission, it was reasonable rent, and helped because you never knew where your next posting was.

OT - I was sitting at a red light yesterday, minding my own business, patiently waiting for it to turn green even though there was no oncoming traffic.
A car-load of bearded young, loud Muslims, shouting anti-Aussie slogans, with a half-burned Aussie flag duct-taped to the boot lid of their car and a "Remember 9-11" slogan spray-painted on the side, stopped next to me.
Suddenly they yelled "Allah Akbar!" and took off before the light changed.
Out of nowhere a bus came speeding through the junction and ran directly over their car, crushing it completely and killing everyone in it.
For several minutes I sat in my car thinking to myself "Bloody hell! That could have been me!" So today, bright and early, I went out and got a job as a bus driver.

Pensioners, motorists and sick people. !!!! Where do you get that from Larry ?

The States are bad enough, but this whole Federal government thing is a monstrous bloodsucking leech on all Australians.

Get on with it and demonstrate to the public the features and benefits of what you are doing…features and benefits…sell it to the public or pay the consequences….

yeah its a fascinating list of entities there, and all the free loading public servants just sucking on the cream. Well one thing, it should make for some very cheap legal advice as hundreds of lawyers and barristers and solicitors will be looking for something else to do, and the old supply and demand principle should kick in with them too.

About bloody time, Joe!
