... ya know what I'm sayin'?

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.


Hosni Mubarek was booted out of office with the support of the Obama Administration. Obama financially and personally helped one of the world’s oldest terrorist organisations, The Muslim Brotherhood, into power with the hopeless Mohamed Morsi as President. Many members of the now banned Muslim Brotherhood still hold positions in Obama’s Administration.

The Arab spring was an exhilarating time for Obama and Clinton.

President Bush Senior had already booted Saddam Hussein’s “million strong” Republican Guard out of Kuwait but, despite encouragement, stopped at the Iraqi border, refusing to go on and take Baghdad and destroy the Hussein regime. Bush the Elder wisely thought that move would be a disaster.

After 9/11 President Bush Junior decided Hussein had to go, despite the fact he had nothing to do with 9/11, so he invaded Iraq anyway and hung Hussein high before installing a useless Shia regime headed by Haider al-Abadi. Then a disaster of divisiveness and paybacks began until the reins were finally given over to Nouri Al Maliki. 

                                                       He was, and still is, worse.

Yet America inexplicably stuck by Al Maliki and as a result, is suffering a strategic defeat in Iraq that has spread to the Middle East in general. The Americans still don’t get how Islamic tribal warfare works. It’s not all about guns, it’s more about treacherously swapping sides to secure tribal power.

Never having been in charge of anything before, apart from a violent, secretive Shiite Islamist political party, Al Maliki struggled with his own Party’s violence. Thousands of Sunni Iraqis were killed and millions more were displaced, the oil industry collapsed, along with his corrupt political partners.

Then in 2007 President Obama incredibly gave a date that his 180,000 American troops would depart Iraq. Hmmm, pretty smart eh?

Well Bush Junior wasn’t much smarter when he signed an agreement with the Iraqi Government Forces setting a deadline of 31st December 2011, before which time "all United States Forces would be withdrawn from all Iraqi territory".

Of course the forewarned vacuum created allowed the newly-born ISIS leader Al Baghdadi (above) to lick his lips in anticipation. Now he had a date he could plan toward where there would be no opposition to a Sunni caliphate.

Shia Iraqis were naturally mercilessly murdered and the growth of ISIS exploded while Obama, despite PM Tony Abbott's urgings, refused to bring back all but a few Special Forces to control the mayhem.

Now the West, via the Holy Triumvirate of the United States, NATO and the European Union mused over yet another regime change, this time in Gaddafi’s Libya and led by Hillary Clinton. But only because France was planning to go it alone and take the rich Libyan oilfields as it was already well represented in many African countries and felt quite entitled.

In the Arab Spring of 2011 NATO then relentlessly bombed Libya into oblivion over seven months and Gaddafi’s opponents shoved a knife up his bum and twirled it around while another rebel shot him in the head with his own fancy hand gun. 

According to multiple sources interviewed by “The New York Times”, Hillary Clinton, as Secretary of State, and with the full backing of President Obama, became convinced that overthrowing Gaddafi would lead to a democracy. Hmmm, well that hasn’t quite worked out for Hillary either.

“Can I finish the two wars I’m already in before you guys go looking for a third one?” US Secretary of Defense, Robert Gates asked at the time. It fell on Hillary’s deaf ears.

The Afghanistan regime-change was also a disaster dressed with yet another of Obama’s troop withdrawal dates. 

For Christ’s sake it doesn’t take the military guile of a Napoleon to know that you should never expose your plans in advance to the enemy... unless of course you intend the plans to be a ruse.

But there was no ruse as the Taliban re-armed and patiently waited until the last soldier left before systematically killing all the girls attending schools and beating the women teaching them.

So that makes four fucked up regime-changes we can mark up to Bush, Obama, Kerry and Hillary Clinton. You would think they would be happy with that. But no, there was yet another tyrant they thought should be done away with... the democratically elected Bashar Assad of Syria (above).

Unfortunately Assad, a minority Alawite Muslim, decided to resist the Americans and has fought to save his nation from the rebel invaders. Even more unfortunately ISIS, Al Qaeda, the Khorasan and a hundred other of their evil offshoots have decided to fight alongside the US-supported rebels as they would all like a piece of the spoils when Assad is gone. Hmmm, should be fun watching that.

Unfortunately they all look the same militarily in a guerrilla fire fight. And try distinguishing fighters from a bomber aircraft!

Fortunately, Russia’s Vladimir Putin, a staunch ally of Assad, has decided to come to his rescue under the guise of killing ISIS jihadists. (He knows America would agree to that.) But Putin is killing American-funded rebel Syrian fighters instead and Obama is furious about that so he has bombed the crap out of a dozen or so of Putin’s and Assad's fighters.

With one million dead Syrian civilians and two million refugees escaping through to Europe with various terrorist intentions, Obama seems quite happy to take 110,000 refugees himself (I mean they are all Muslims aren’t they) with the Communist Canadian Trudeau to his north matching him.

Now, after all that, you would think Barack and Hillary would give the game away and hook up with Bill and one of his floosies for a swinging foursomes holiday in the Seychelles or something. But no... they not only want another term in the White House but they are siding with the corrupt Poroshenko of Ukraine against Putin who is fighting for land access to his Crimean Naval port.

This mob in the White House is the most corrupt Administration since Serbia’s Slobodan Miloservic.

And they haven’t even finished with Kerry and Iran or the Saudis and Turkey yet. Golly!


I know that some of you aren't enthused about Donald Trump but it does explain some things.

This is absolutely unthinkable that nobody especially the CIA would have noticed this....

Trump is starting to look better all the time.

This information has all been checked, then double checked... It is 100% Correct.

That's why there is such an alarm within US government, since Trump's statement about temporary suspension of migration of Muslims to US until US authorities make sure there is a proper concept of safe penetration of US territory.

People are stunned to learn that the head of the U.S. CIA is a Muslim! Do hope this wakes up some!

Until it hits you like a ton of bricks read it again, until you understand!

We now have a Muslim government in the US!

John Brennan, c

you're pretty close here but not quite, there are no moderate rebels. Obama funded all of them (even ISIS) directly in an effort to topple Assad. The US exposed themselves recently when, for an hour they directly attacked Syrian soldiers that were fighting ISIS. In reality this war will be over when Syria clears this ISIS filth out of Aleppo. And the US knows this. Which is why they are desperately trying to stop the battle.

For BK's benefit, the current $55 departure tax raises $1b a year for the Govt. $250 m is needed to cover processing passenger movements, Security, Quarantine and customs. The rest is gouging and the extra $5 is more of that. What it is predicted to do is effect tourism and travel in a price sensitive market.

We live in n era of instant graifiction.

On ABC radio's PM tonight I heard some overpaid moron claiming that the SA storm was "unprecedented". Really? I don't think so.


"An Illawarra man who fathered multiple children with his biological daughter as the result of sexual abuse spanning more than a decade in the 2000s has been sentenced to 16 years jail."

Read this on breitbart. It seems that I have to use anti bacterial wash on my super market trolley to make sure that I do not get ill. I must use anti bacterial wash when I touch anything just in case I get infected. Banks in Australia are refusing to accept coins unless they are in bags.
We are infected.
The world is infected.
The millions that are invading our countries bring in TB, disease that no one knows about.
I would like to suggest that we all object to this by buying a mask tomorrow and wearing it.
I believe that the only way that people will understand how bad this is is that if we SHOW it.I am in.

South Australia will review the events that led to the state's big blackout but Premier Jay Weatherill is resisting calls for an independent inquiry.

He says a catastrophic weather event that brought down transmission towers in the north caused the statewide power failure and was not linked to SA's high use of renewable energy.

No energy system in the world would have been able to cope with the severe winds that tore towers from the ground and brought down high transmission lines, but he said the government would review what happened to see what could be learned from the experience.

"Of course there will be elements that did not work perfectly and we'll review each of those things," he said.

The Australian energy market regulator would also conduct a technical review to establish the sequence of events, and federal, state and territory energy ministers would meet to thrash over what happened to send SA dark.

Transmission company ElectraNet, which operates the damaged infrastructure, has also indicated it will look at what could be done to avoid a repeat of the crisis.

But the South Australian opposition says and independent investigation must begin immediately.

"The situation that occurred yesterday was totally unacceptable and we need to ensure it does not happen again," Opposition Leader Steven Marshall said.

"The independent inquiry into the unprecedented state-wide blackout should investigate, amongst other matters, the lack of baseload power generation in South Australia."

Independent Senator Nick Xenophon described the situation as a disgrace and also called for an investigation.

"This is unprecedented in this nation. We need answers," Senator Xenophon said.

I've figured it out. Why Australia is so disadvantaged. Just watched that channel 7 show "The Chaser", it's a quiz show that reflects the basic intelligence of the average under 40 Australian from what I could make out. The most basic simple general knowledge questions most had no clue. Unless it was a pop group/movie star question they were all buggered. Really we're producing morons.

Thanks Larry again for an excellent article. It's a mercy that someone is paying enough attention to the big picture, so that we can all know the truth without it being twisted by MSM.

Could find...

Shorten proves again what a dumb idiot he is every time he opens his mouth. Surely unionlabor cought find someone not quite as stupid. What about Olive ?

Putin must think the world is an idiot to believe the rubbish his propoganda machine is spewing out. The telephone intercepts are enough to prove Russia's invovement without the tons of other evede nce.It is a different world to when he was one of Stalins KGB officers. i e the w.w.w.!

What's that fuckwit xylophone been saying about the blackout ?

To some extent, South Australians should suffer a little due to the blackouts. They are the dopey bastards that voted Labor in. They might think twice next time.

They will ban motor vehicles next!

Thanks for this link BK... while I read the article, I'm afraid I'd have to question some of those figures... particularly the 40% of power which is generated by wind!

I too, trooper5.... found the same thing's-reputation:-uhlmann/788829 cannot be found. It might have been removed, had its name changed, or be temporarily unavailable.

Oh look, I know you all wont be able to resist Clemintine F on The Drum - apparently whinging about how hard it is to be a girl and fight or some such crap. I have seen some of her drivel she writes and I wonder how her upbringing was and where she went to school. Clemmy needs to learn what we all learned years ago - respect, discipline and manners. Those 3 abilities always made life pleasant for most if not all.

This weeks Darwin Digest reflects on Immigration, up to their usual very high standards.
Totally addictive listening IMO.
