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.


A change in US Administrations involves getting rid of the dead wood the electorate has said it no longer trusts. A change in an Australian Administration involves maintaining the very same heads of the very same agencies that got a former Government into a heap of trouble in the first place! Is Turnbull right about his Republic notion?

Government Departments need a thorough spring clean each time a Government is thrown out and that is exactly what is happening in Washington right now. If not, there will be former ideological regimes working to bring down the soon-to-be-current one of Trump’s.

The IRS was found to have targeted Republicans for special audit over the past eight years. Our ATO also has a political agenda, as do all Government Agencies. So why the hell are incoming Governments obliged to keep the very Agencies that are certain to work flat out to kill them?

Oh yes, I know, Heads of Agencies are mostly term appointments made under the Governor General’s Office in order to maintain continuity. Yep I’ve heard all that guff before. 

That’s why we are still burdened with the likes of Gillian Triggs of the HRC, the ABC and the Director General of ASIO, Duncan Lewis, who is also a recent GG appointment who appears to be in the same useless mould as the former Director General, David Irvine who spent more time doing after dinner speeches than looking for manic Muslims. 

Irvine (and now Lewis) was in budget allocation competition with five other related Australian Security Agencies who still refuse to pool security intelligence for fear of losing the kudos that drives their budgets.

The CSIRO over the past 30 years has nurtured and promoted a global warming culture that has cosseted Left Greens in high office promoting Left Green policies. It is currently led by loony Larry Marshall, who pushes the dishonest warming “science” while developing his pet occult venture of water divining. 

    Larry Marshall (above) has had his tenure extended until 2025. Now there’s a surprise!

Minister Greg Hunt commented, "I look forward to working with Mr Marshall as CSIRO continues to deliver outstanding science for the benefit of Australia and Australian industry". Again that’s no surprise from the little Minister for Global Warming who hands over $10 billion a year in “science” development costs and works hand in hand with Gillard’s $10 billion Renewable Energy Fund.

How Abbott could possibly have successfully led a Conservative Government with such entrenched Left departments actively determined to unseat him is not a mystery...we all know what happened.

                                        The plush new Canberra offices of the CSIRO

The CSIRO has an office in every State and Territory with over-fed bosses who fold to any outrageous union demand. WTF does it need an office in every State for, if not for the interstate business class airfares to ensure they all enjoy long lunches to discuss the venue for the next bout of long lunches?

The CSIRO is allowed to fraudulently promote and represent itself as an innovator and inventor but with 6,500 staff on luxurious conditions it has been unable to even partially pay its way, still demanding huge dollar injections, greater than does the ABC, despite its claim of making big money from its endless list of phony inventions .

The CSIRO’s main claim to fame is the “invention” of WiFi. This is totally incorrect and has landed CSIRO in a phalanx of permanent US litigation with laptop makers Sony, Lenovo and Acer.

                                 John O'Sulivan receives the PM's award with Kim Carr

WiFi was invented by two US companies long before a Dr John O’Sullivan was employed by the CSIRO on the basis of his WiFi “add-on”, a sort of app, to the early 90s technology discovery. 

The CSIRO, no stranger to constant litigation, then set about suing dozens of US companies. Huge Companies such as Acer, Atheros, AT&T, Broadcom, Gateway, Lenovo, T-Mobile, Verizon, and Sony who paid the CSIRO an embarrassing pittance just to get rid of the serial litigant. 

Joe Mullin of ARS Technica Magazine, said, “The partial transcript from the 2009 trial still stands as the only public record of CSIRO's outsized claims to have invented WiFi.

 But hang on a minute, there are thousands of dodgy QANGOS dependent on our taxes and the CSIRO is but one of hundreds of organisations that suck on the taxpayer’s teat while dreading the election of another Tony Abbott.

Abbott was a successful micro version of Trump without the ability to drain anything. 

If a Tony Abbott happens again, they will be there to contribute to another assassination... their inflated incomes and obscene expense accounts depend on it.

As PM, Abbott was confined to wet lettuce, nominal cutbacks to these obese Government Agencies. Anyway “Green Energy” and ABC cuts were restored by Turnbull and Hunt immediately after the sacking of Abbott. 

And of course the stick insect rushed back to the UN with a replenished sack full of money to contribute even more to Australia’s belief in the global warming hoax that Abbott rightly claimed was "crap".

We can sit back and watch Trump drain the swamp... but hell will freeze over before the billabong gets drained of our bludging Left Green freeloaders. 


donna godbolt the troll is back again, this time as 'andrew blount'

The new picture of the Royal mob see's the Queen looking like Yoda from Star Wars fame minus the pointy ears ; Check out the look in her eyes ,she looks like she's about to bite someone.

Along with the UN, Goldman Sachs et al were the architects of the now captive global energy market feudal system that delivers untold enrichment (for them) on the backs of the captured energy consumer serfs (that's us) who, as they (we) are herded into certain energy poverty via the UN's climate fraud is nothing less than a redistribution of global wealth apparatus. Cornering the market on any essential commodity, is a tried and tested path to enrichment, as documented by the U.S. Senate Committee on Environment and Public Works Report:

The Chain of Environmental Command:

How a Club of Billionaires and Their Foundations Control the Environmental Movement
and Obama’s EPA

Depends on where the bullets hit, although shock may have an effect, if one were kneecapped (2 bullets), shot in each shoulder (2 bullets), and stopped another two in non-lethal spots.

Seems the whole lot are feathering each other while they keep putting pressure on the taxpayer to come up with more. And this has been going for at least the last 40 years... the mind boggles.

tsk tsk

Excerpt from
Truth and Fiction in Elie Wiesel’s “Night”

“…….The trouble here is that in its central, most crucial scene, Night isn’t historically true, and at least two other important episodes are almost certainly fiction. Below, I cite views, vigorously expressed to me in recent weeks by a concentration camp survivor, Eli Pfefferkorn, who worked with Wiesel for many years; also by Raul Hilberg. Hilberg is the world’s leading authority on the Nazi Holocaust. An expanded version of his classic three-volume study, The Destruction of the European Jews, was recently reissued by Yale University Press. Wiesel personally enlisted Hilberg to be the historical expert on the United States Holocaust Commission.
If absolute truth to history is the standard, Pfefferkorn says, then Nightdoesn’t make the grade. Wiesel made things up, in a way that his many subsequent detractors could identify as not untypical of his modus operandi: grasping with deft assurance what people important to his future would want to hear and, by the same token, would not want to hear.
The book that became Night was originally a much longer account, published in Yiddish in 1956, under the title Un di Velt Hot Geshvign(And the World Remained Silent). Wiesel was living in Paris at the time. By 1958 he had translated his book from Yiddish into French, publishing it in that year under the title La Nuit. Wiesel says it was severely cut down in length by Jerome Lindon, the chief editor at Editions de Minuit. In 1960 came the English translation, Night, published by Hill & Wang. The 2006 edition of Night is translated from the 1958 French version by Wiesel’s wife, Marion, and in the introduction Wiesel says he has “been able to correct and revise a number of important details”………………..
Elie Wiesel admits his true stories never happened -
"........In his autobiography, Wiesel recounts a time when, visiting Israel, he went to see the “young” Rebbe of Wizhnitz, whose father he remembered with reverence from his childhood. At the end of the visit, which took two pages (273-75) to tell, the Rebbe questioned the young writer without being satisfied with his answers. Then:
The conversation became more relaxed. He asked me about my work. He wanted to know if the stories I told in my books were true, had they really happened. I answered not too convincingly: “In literature, Rebbe, certain things are true though they didn’t happen, while others are not, even if they did.”
I would have loved to have received his blessing.1
Notice that he first says he is writing “literature”2, not faithful accounts of his own experience. Next, we understand that by withholding his blessing, the noted Hasidic rabbi conveyed he was not pleased with the evasive answers of the Hasidic Jew Elie Wiesel. Wiesel himself says his answer to the final question was “not too convincing.” And finally, since Wiesel admits that he writes about things that never happened as being true, we can’t even be sure that this event happened, can we. This is the problem with everything in the life and work of Elie Wiesel........................."


Interesting articles in that site dusty, never came across it till now.


I thought he died of lead poisoning

I can see that. hahahaha

You're the only fools, godbolt and dodo...made a career out of abusing and threatening people's lives here...Miss Gorilla...I have a complete record of your "glory" nights back in March this year, remember ? 'slowly, bitch, slowly'? you two can't even get it through your abnormally thick heads, that V and I are two different people. So easy to understand, except apparently for you two thickies. Gosh Zannetti must have had a laugh at you 2 every time you rant at me for being her..dumb, and dumber.

hahahahaha...Frank, it's port disgusting, (bound for) South Australia, heel away you rogues and thieves, heel away, haul away....

And up in the nursery an absurd little bird, Is popping out to say "cuckoo"....Cuckoo, cuckoo !!

Lights, reminds me of how many many years ago, my juvenile friends were trying to light their own farts. Apparently they are flammable, and they ended up with singed a-holes.

shouldn't think so m'friend !! I once saw a college prank photo...a group of friends rented a house, the number of front windows the same as the tenants who moved in. each one took his place at one of the windows, and a mate across the street took photos as they simultaneously did a moon out of every window....juvenile yes, but made the photos were a great talking point in the pub !!

Frank is back. What, or who, is Donna Godbolt to you ?

a cab driver in Canberra told me that the water "quality" is so dangerous, people aren't safe if they fall, obviously no swimming...I guess you wouldn't fish there either. doesn't sound great. it looks nice though. from a distance. mind you, that's about all that looks nice in Cantberra...the most appalling hole of a place I've ever been in, with the sole exception of Bromley in Kent (England).

Frank is back. = Vivienne Frances Harrod Sigley of Ballina NSW (stolen account)
