No matter how far you look up, you will barely see me.

Only those above me can see me.

I pour what the above has to offer.

In speeches, I am suspicious.

I'm going to suggest the word is

Nose


No matter how far you look up, you will barely see me.

We can always see our nose in our very peripheral vision, and our ability to view it doesn't matter how far up we look.

Only those above me can see me.

Only our eyes ("those" above our nose) can see our nose.

I pour what the above has to offer.

Our eyes offer up tears to our nose, which pours out as water, snot, and other unpleasantness.

In speeches, I am suspicious.

"Keep it under your nose", tapping on the nose, wrinkling of the nose, are all indications of suspicion or covertness. It's also possible to be nosy (i.e. nose-y, as a figure of speech), which follows from suspicion of others.

I think the word is,

Shadow


No matter how far you look up, you will barely see me.

Shadows on Earth are formed down as the source of light, the Sun is above it. So we can't see them above us.

Only those above me can see me.

We can see the shadow only if we are above it.

I pour what the above has to offer.

Shadow is the silhouette of the object above it and it is formed/poured down.

In speeches, I am suspicious.

Here shady = suspicious

    $\begingroup$ If the shadow is on the wall (created by say a light bulb) then you do not have to be above it to see it. Just a thought. $\endgroup$

    $\begingroup$ The 4th hint has the answer I was looking for, it is a good interpretation, however it isn't the exact answer I was looking for :) $\endgroup$ Jan 30 at 9:32

In my opinion the word is,

Eyes


No matter how far you look up, you will barely see me.

We cannot see our eyes if we try to look up.

Only those above me can see me.

Only taller people can see the eyes of ones who are shorter than them.

I pour what the above has to offer.

Tears pour down as offered by the person above.

In speeches, I am suspicious.

suspicious eyes is commonly used for a doubtful/suspecting person.
