Katter’s Australian Party says a $70 billion rail proposal for south east Queensland is a slap in the face to North Queenslanders and supports the argument for North Queensland to break away and become self-governing.
The KAP says the State Labor Government is looking at pie in the sky proposals to save itself at the next state election, funded by the resurgence in coal prices and the likely start of the giant Adani coal mine.
KAP State Leader and Member for Traeger, Robbie Katter wants $250,000 allocated by the State Government to look at the economic, legal and cultural elements of a separate state in North Queensland.
“I bet this Government is spending a lot more on supporting the Jeff Horn/Anthony Mundine fight later this year in Brisbane, than the $250,000 requested to map out the costs and benefits of North Queenslanders being able to govern themselves,” he said.
“This Government has brought out the Adani credit card and is starting to spend the coal royalties, the great bulk of which come from North Queensland.
“We do not want to see progress stopped in south east Queensland but fair go – what about the North?”
“We don’t want $70 billion. We just want to see a better allocation of government investment in infrastructure, human and natural resources.
“The first step is $250,000 to map out a plan. Queensland Rail spent $500,000 on organic soap and toiletries in 2017, so we are not asking for much from this government to prove that the North can stand on its own two feet.”
Mr Katter said respected demographer Bernard Salt had said as far back as 2010 that North Queensland had a case for secession. He said that case was even stronger today.
Mr Katter said the combined gross regional product from the economies of Townsville and Cairns was around $25 billion – the same as Tasmania, run by its own State Government.
“Even without Adani, combined mining royalties in Queensland generated in the North is about $5 billion and that money should flow to the North. It isn’t,” he said.
“This Government is spending over $500,000 on trade missions overseas every year; millions on promoting boxing matches in Brisbane and at least $30 million to try and attract the Hollywood film industry here.
“The $250,000 we are seeking is a drop in the ocean.
“Why is the Premier so scared of this independent study proceeding? The answer is she knows that it will prove the case for North Queensland to make its own way.”
Mr Katter said previous work done by Queensland Treasury estimated the gross domestic product for someone living in the north west of the state was $186,502 per person compared to $63.631 in the south east, yet the flow of investment back into the regions doesn’t reflect this.
State KAP Leader Robbie Katter has called on the Queensland Attorney-General to refer Premier Annastacia Palaszczuk to the Director of Public Prosecutions over her sacking of KAP staff last month.
Mr Katter’s calls preceded news that Labor had this week used its numbers in Parliament to vote down an LNP motion that would see a special committee established to investigate the Premier’s behaviour.
Mr Katter said the objectivity of the Ethics Committee that the Premier had been referred to had huge questions around it.
“Both major parties are compromised in this process, but particularly the Labor Party as each Labor MP on the Committee will be investigating their boss,” Mr Katter said.
“We’d be naïve to think that they won’t have that in the back of their mind when making recommendations.
“It’s vitally important that the Ethics Committee seeks impartial and independent advice from experts about the case.
“The CCC has said the Premier has breached the Criminal Code – if that doesn’t require significant punishment under our parliamentary standards I don’t know what does.”
A report handed down by the Queensland Crime and Corruption Commission on September 27 found there was “prime facie” evidence the Premier had breached the Criminal Code by using the funding she had granted the KAP as leverage to influence the minor party.
Mr Katter said there was now great public pressure on the government to uphold the integrity of the Queensland Parliament, and that it was vital for the Attorney-General Yvette D’Ath to step in.
“The Director of Public Prosecutions has two tests to consider when taking on a prosecution,” he said.
“1. Is there sufficient evidence? The head of the CCC has said that there is a prima facie breach of the Criminal Code.
“2. Does the public interest require prosecution? The individual occupying the highest office in the state has acted illegally. If this isn’t in the public interest, I’m not sure what is.”
Mr Katter said he was astounded by the fact the Premier had refused to stand aside while the matter was being investigated.
“We all make mistakes and we all must be held accountable for those mistakes; if the same level of standards were being applied to the Premier now as she had applied to some of those in her Cabinet, she would have stood down,” he said.
“To me, that refusal is the height of arrogance and suggests that in our Parliament, some people can get away with things while others can’t.
“Unfortunately for the State Government, I don’t think Queenslanders are very accepting of that sentiment.”
KAP Leader and Federal Member for Kennedy Bob Katter has today continued his insurgency against the ratification of the Trans-Pacific Partnership-11 (TPP-11) as it heads into the Senate by unleashing a tirade on the Government’s claim that Australia will be ‘last in the queue’ should the bill be shot down.
“Most of my last speeches in Parliament have been what I’ve hoped are fierce attacks upon the hypocrisy of free trade; upon our industry representative organisations particularly in agriculture. All we’ve got out of these bodies in Canberra is a clapping of hands for every free trade deal.
“The Federal Government couldn’t drive the drover’s dog to a drink in the Murranji Track, and yet, they live in a world where their peculiar Adam Smith policies eliminate any reference to the assumptions upon which free markets are valid.
“Adam Smith would turn in his grave if his principles had been used to abolish arbitration in the dairy industry when there were 15,000 sellers in the market, and only two buyers: “Woolworths and Coles”.
“These people would fail the most elementary economics course at a reputable university and yet they continue on with the most crude and snivelling supine pathetic resort to the mantra of free trade when it has removed our car industry, made us petrol mendicants, blast production, halved our cement and steel industries and reduced us to two quarries: iron ore and coal.
“Take note, if the TPP-11 is signed it will be the greatest blow to democracy in 300 years, and will amount to nothing more than a new form of Corporate Colonialism.
“This agreement is not about trade, it’s about sovereignty,” Mr Katter said. “Governments will now be stripped of their power to regulate the behaviour of overseas companies and will face legal consequences if they do. The cigarette smoking case is a classic example.
“Companies will be able to come here under certain terms and conditions and no Government will be able to change those without fairly horrific consequences, if at all. It takes away our sovereignty and hands it over to the giant foreign owned corporations.
“Once in place, withdrawing from the TPP will ensure the wrath of countries infinitely more powerful than our own.
“Over the last two centuries America has constantly enforced these principals upon the Latin/American countries and reduced them to grinding poverty if not quite mendicant states”
Mr Katter expressed concern over the foreign workers who would be let into the country under the TPP agreement.
“Foreign workers will pour in and they are already at high levels, there are 600,000 foreign workers a year coming into an economy creating only 200,000 jobs a year. They are taking our jobs and undermining our pay and conditions, and there’s nothing we can do about it.”
Mr Katter said free trade had ravaged multiple agricultural industries in Australia, pointing to the US Free Trade Agreement as an example.
“The American free trade deal was about dairy, beef and sugar. The value to dairying was quoted as being the value of one free ice-cream a week for each farmer. The cattle industry has always had a fairly good deal on access to the US and the sugar industry was wiped like a dirty rag. It got nothing. The powerful ‘Florida cane mafia’, as they are called, laughed.
“The Americans on the other hand, wanted quarantine dramatically weakened. Our quarantine was dramatically undermined and our drug and pharmaceutical rules of entry dramatically weakened. They achieve both their goals, and it was hailed in the American congress as ‘wonderful for America’ and I quote: “I know Australia, there is a view that they got shafted, but I think there was some things in there for them”. Yes, there was, but we couldn’t find them.
“The Government told us how wonderful it was for us, but there were no specifics.
“These are the people that have halved our wage structure in the mining industry. They say labour costs are killing us. A decent income for our workers is what we strive for in this country. And what was once our great pride and achievement in the days of the Bjelke-Petersen/ McEwen Country Party governments, now it is apparently a mark of shame.
“I absolutely believe we are now retreating back to the days of colonialism, the only difference being that it is Corporate Colonialism and not Imperial Colonialism.
“We will continue the fight against the TPP-11 in the Senate by introducing an amendment and we plead with all Senators not to turn the control of their country into the hands of foreign corporations.”
Senator Anning Solid in Face of Anti-White Criticism, Again!
Speaking in response to the hysterical reaction to Senator Hanson’s motion which said “It’s ok to be white”, Senator Anning stood and defended the position to howls of outrage.
“Of course it is ok to be white. There is nothing racist about being proud of whom you are, if Senator Faruqi stood up and said she was a proud Muslim woman she would be hailed as a hero.”
“Conversely with any discussion or suggestion of being proud of being white, you are labelled a white supremacist or a Fascist- tired old labels the left attaches to anyone they disagree with.” Senator Anning said.
“The hysterical response to Government support for Senator Hanson’s motion today proves the point that there is most definitely a rise in anti-white sentiment creeping into Australian society.”
“Although Senator Hanson attacked my call for a predominantly European immigration programme in my maiden speech, I will always defend anyone who defends our national identity.”
“I was the only person who defended her position – the government is frantically trying to back pedal and her own senator Peter Georgiou was apparently urgently required elsewhere.”
“Today’s response has shown that there is anti-white racism and what we need in this country is some of my colleagues to grow an actual backbone” Senator Anning concluded.

The producer of the film ‘A Funny Thing Happened on the Way to the Moon’, Bart Sibrel joins Sean Kerrigan to discuss Fake News, the Apollo Moon missions, SpaceX and YouTube’s double standard regarding censorship and demonetization.
Sibrel believes that Alex Jones, for example was “taken down” to confer him with “Street Cred” to his millions of fans, in order to be trotted out to promote a big lie later – soon.
YouTube hates Sibrel’s truth-telling about the Lunar Landings and they demonetize his videos. Meanwhile, they allow incredible violence and other violations of purported “Community Guidelines” by big corporate accounts.
Sibrel easily demonstrates how the photographs of the Lunar surface are fake because the shadows are pointing in different directions. This would not be possible on the Moon, due to the Sun being the only light source and the light being unidirectional. This is to say nothing about NASA’s recent admissions that they don’t have the technology to protect Astronauts from the enormous radiation of the Van Allen Belts.
Sibrel continues his analysis of motion picture evidence and uses deductive reasoning to show how NASA’s claims that they destroyed their hardware and telemetry data as a basis for why they’ve lost the ability to accomplish that mission today is nonsensical. There is no precedent in history for people obliterating their latest technological achievement. He utterly squashes any consideration that Apollo completed manned missions to the Moon using 1960s technology.
Kerrigan asks him what he thinks of SpaceX and Sibrel says it’s fake and that it’s a front for the Intelligence Community and that Elon Musk is a cardboard cut-out phony. SpaceX’s hallmark vertical landing rockets are suspect; they unnecessarily waste fuel. The multiple vertical landing attempts finally succeeded in 2017 (if that footage is to be believed and Sean has his doubts about it) but even this just proves that NASA did not achieve vertical landing rockets until 50 years after they’d originally alleged this had been achieved.
As to Musk’s plans to conduct a manned mission to Mars in 2024, Sibrel says he wishes he could bet big money against the likelihood of this ever happening (“I could become a trillionaire with one dollar!”).
Sibrel believes that high profile people, like Elon Musk, Alex Jones and Joe Rogan are being told what they can and cannot say. Rogan used to be one of the most well-known Moon Landing skeptics but now he claims he’s “not smart enough” to know for sure. In Sibrel’s opinion, once you understand why the Moon Landings weren’t real, there’s no turning back and that Rogan was either threatened or bribed or blackmailed.
In addition, Sibrel believes that what’s going on with Alex Jones is that he might be “a CIA agent” who’s being groomed now to get everybody to believe one particular lie and that once Jones has been publicly “rehabilitated” he will be deployed upon the populace to do just that. Jones has never voiced any doubt about the official story of the Moon Landings, which he believes is very telling.
He says the Moon Landings are something that, if the truth were revealed to the public at large, it would take down the Main Stream Media.
However, Sibrel explains, “Bob Dylan didn’t say ‘Money talks.’ He said, ‘Money screams,'” and that if he were offered the right price, even he would definitely consider lying about the Moon Landings.

West Australian senator in exile Rodney Culleton has called on the senate President Richard Pye to call him and former senator Jacqui Lambie to appear before the senate by issuing a writ of Habeas Corpus.
Culleton has been dogged by state and federal government-initiated law suites since being forced out of the senate. When sitting in the senate he pushed for a Royal Commission into corrupt behaviour of banks and for the High Court to reinstate Queen Elizabeth 2 to legal process.
With the help of federal MP Bob Katter, he was successful with the Banking Royal Commission. In part, he got the Queen restored but he pointed out the HCA actually reinstated the fictitious Queen of Australia, which he says is not a lawful entity.
The maverick former farmer has been stymied by government in every legal move he has made to get himself reinstated to the senate.
On the evidence, there is no doubt government has called in judicial favours to knock out his appeals on every occasion, in all levels of courts.
Culleton has also called on the senate to include all other sacked senators, removed as a result of an order from the HCA sitting as the Court of Disputed Returns sought by the Turnbull Government which he says was in breach of the Commonwealth Constitution.
He has asked the senate to debate Motion 163 of 2016, which was lawfully enacted on December 1, 2016 and warned that s147.1 of the Criminal Code Act of 1995 could be invoked for failing to list the motion for further debate.
“Motion 163 of 2016 was a requirement passed by the House announcing that the referral of November 7, 2016 is faulty and that there needs to be further investigation into that faulty action, which was never passed by any procedure of law, orchestrated by former Senators Parry and Brandis,” Mr Culleton said.
“Brandis’ motion to the House in constitutionally forming a meeting by way of a Quorum on November 7, 2016 as defined in s 22 Constitution was a failure of the tellers who counted the ‘Ayes’ and ‘Noes’ who should have noticed insufficient senators were present to take a vote.”
It is of interest that former inept senator George Brandis was whisked away to London to fill the position of Australian High Commissioner, a reward from Turnbull, the Australian Bankers Association representative in government.
Former senate President Stephen parry, a former Tasmanian police officer, has disappeared from the face of the earth after allegations of his involvement in a massive cover-up concerning the framing of alleged Port Arthur shooter, Martin Bryant, caught up to him while sitting as President.
Dairy, citrus, potato, pineapple, prawn, fishing industries, motor vehicles, pulp, paper, fibre, fuel, plastics and more finished, now sugar
HINCHINBROOK MP Nick Dametto has urged the Federal Government to stand up for Australian cane farmers after India’s decision to dump millions of tonnes of subsidised sugar on the world market.
The Katter’s Australian Party (KAP) MP, whose electorate is home to a sugar industry worth more than $300 million a year, said India’s actions were a kick in the guts for local cane farmers.
“This is a disgraceful decision by India at a time when our producers are already dealing with a poor world sugar price below the cost of production,” he said.
“It is not a level playing field when India’s sugar industry is getting the equivalent of an $850 million government assistance package, including help to export their product,” he said.
Mr Dametto’s call for action was backed up by KAP leader and Federal Member for Kennedy Bob Katter who was also furious at the situation.
“Our country will not survive continuing to be what economist Trevor Sykes called the “only virgin in the brothel,” Mr Katter said.
“Most of my last speeches in Parliament have been what I’ve hoped are fierce attacks upon the hypocrisy of free trade; upon our industry representative organisations particularly in agriculture.
All we’ve got out of these bodies in Canberra is a clapping of hands for every free trade deal.
“What country on earth free trades?”
Mr Katter also cast doubt on the willingness of industrial countries like China or India to be transparent when it came to playing by the rules on free trade.
“Does anyone seriously believe that China or India free trade?” he said.
“The damage done by deregulation has been colossal. The damage was done by national Liberal governments. The National Competition Policy was forced upon the states by the Federal Government. I know this because I was then in that Federal Government and this was one of the major reasons I left.
“Before deregulation, the sugar producer was receiving $473 a tonne and the price to the consumer was $1040 a tonne (104c per/kg). A mark-up of around 100 per cent.
The “current price” to the producer is $317 per tonne and the price on the shelf is $1750 per tonne ($1.75 per/kg). That’s nearly a 600 per cent mark up.
“The supermarket chains have said “thank you, we love you Mr Government. You have enabled us now to charge the consumers a 600 per cent mark-up instead of a 100 percent mark-up”.
“American farmers get paid for sugar around $600 a tonne, French farmers’ $700 tonne, Thailand farmers around $450 a tonne, and Australian farmers, $317 a tonne. We have the most poorly paid sugar farmers in the world and that is the outcome of government free-market policies.
Mr Katter said free trade had ravaged multiple agricultural industries in Australia, pointing to the US Free Trade Agreement as an example.
“The American free trade deal was about dairy, beef and sugar. The value to dairying was quoted as one free ice-cream a week for each farmer. The cattle industry has always had a fairly good deal on access and the sugar industry was wiped like a dirty rag. It got nothing.
“Mark Vaile, the then National Party Minister for Trade, said before a negotiations started, “There would be no deal unless sugar was included”. To call anyone in the National Party a liar is not really correct, they are actually jokes. They are not the beer in the bottle; they’re the label that tells you how good the beer is.
“When Tony Abbott rose to his feet to congratulate Andrew Robb on securing the free trade deal with China, all the Liberals and their flunkies – the Nationals – stood up and gave a standing ovation. I said to the MP next door to me, “Abbott just wrote his own death warrant”.
“A couple of months later, he was gone.
“What they don’t tell you on beef, is yes, you can get beef into the US free of tariffs (around two per cent), but the USA beef subsidy is around 30 per cent. Under the Free Trade Agreement, it stays.
“The subsidy in India on ‘fertiliser alone’ was, when I last looked, $2.3 billion a year. The Indians believe in cheap food for their people, and quite rightly so. The ALP and LNP believe in free trade – yeah, for the supermarket giants.
“But clearly not in cheap food for the people.”
Walter calls for supporters to attend the court
After losing his wife and property, then being jailed for a month in 2017, former policeman and Constitutional analyst David Walter has struck back, filing a claim in the Supreme Court against the Queensland Premier.
A hearing to strike out Walter’s application under the Uniform Civil Procedure Rules 1999 by solicitor Paul Andrew Lack for Premier Annastacia Palaszczuk has been set down for October 12, 2018 in the Cairns Courthouse.
Walter was bankrupted by the Mackay City Council and other regional councils allegedly for advising ratepayers not to pay council rates.
He said he had made two requests to the Premier to have the matter settled out of court, but she had refused.
In 2017 he was unlawfully bankrupted by four shire councils as a non-party to actions taken by the councils against ratepayers for refusing to pay rates. In what was a first ever action of this nature, Walter experienced and exposed judicial and political corruption on a scale not ever seen in Queensland.
In his deposition Walter states private citizens are excluded from any criminal or civil legal actions by the ‘State Government.’
“Any property be it real or ready money Legal tender of the Commonwealth Pounds, shillings and pence, real property land or any private property held in any private Constructive Trust of any private person which includes Her Majesty, Queen Elizabeth 2 in their will and testament for their heirs and assigns, is protected under the Common Law of the Commonwealth of Australia (UK) as held to Crimes Act 1914 and the ASIO Act of 1914 from any taking and use for any business purposes of a private person themselves the Members of the Registered Political Parties in the Commonwealth of Australia Act (UK), must be by way of signed Contracts by all parties involved and the property be it Money Legal tender of the Commonwealth or Real or Personal Property by way of acquisition only,” Walter deposed.
“Any acquisition of property by the Members of the Registered Political Parties are held to Paragraph 51 (xxxi) of the Commonwealth of Australia Constitution Act (UK):
acquisition of property has the same meaning as in paragraph 51(xxxi) of the Constitution.
“Section 33 binds the Crown in the right of the Commonwealth, as the Crown is represented by the Constitutional Sovereign Her Majesty the QUEEN Elizabeth 2, in the Constitutions of the Six former Colonies those Constitutions are held to Parliaments of the (UK) – as members of the House of Commons as held to Common Laws of England, not being Members of Registered Political Parties or a MP in a signed De Facto Relationship with either John Howard or Peter Beattie both private persons an subjects of the Crown in the Preamble, the Deed of the Commonwealth of Australia Constitution Act (UK).
“As the Crown, being a private person Elizabeth 2, the Crown herself cannot be liable to pay any pecuniary penalties in Australian Currency $AUSD a digital Currency only, by way of a fine under Australian Law.
“Nor can Her Majesty the Queen be imprisoned for any Statutory Offence of the Australian Parliaments commencing 1988, by any Judicial Officer (Justice or Magistrate) in any Australian Court on the land of the Crown held to Common Law of England as is every other person of the Commonwealth including the Queen herself.
“Therefore any person being a subject of the Crown, imprisoned in Queensland, under the statutory Laws of Private persons, Members of Registered Political Parties, in unsigned and dated and sealed Judgements signed by a employee of (the “State”) a State of a Clerk of any Queensland Courts or person holding that authority and paid in Australian Currency, for their private services to the Parliamentary Members of the Parliament of Queensland Act No.80 of 2001. Reprint 1E © State of Queensland 2016, persons themselves inside the Constitution Act 1867 Qld, as those they have imprisoned or fined under digital Australian Law, must be immediately released as held to the Common Law of England as held to Church of England and the Holy See.”
David Walter has asked for supporters to turn up at the Cairns hearing to ensure a repeat of his incarceration by a wayward Magistrate does not occur again.
Port Arthur false flag did the damage
In 1929, the Soviet Union established gun control. From 1929 to 1953, about 20 million dissidents, unable to defend themselves, were rounded up and exterminated.
In 1911, Turkey established gun control. From 1915 to 1917, 1.5 million Armenians, unable to defend themselves, were rounded up and exterminated.
Germany established gun control in 1938 and from 1939 to 1945, a total of 13 million Jews and others who were unable to defend themselves were rounded up and exterminated.
China established gun control in 1935. From 1948 to 1952, 20 million political dissidents, unable to defend themselves were rounded up and exterminated.
Guatemala established gun control in 1964. From 1964 to 1981, 100,000 Mayan Indians, unable to defend themselves, were rounded up and exterminated.
Uganda established gun control in 1970. From 1971 to 1979, 300,000 Christians, unable to defend themselves, were rounded up and exterminated.
Cambodia established gun control in 1956. From 1975 to 1977, one million educated people, unable to defend themselves, were rounded up and exterminated.
56 million defenseless people rounded up and exterminated in the 20th Century because of gun control:
You won’t see this data on the evening news, or hear politicians disseminating this information.
Guns in the hands of honest citizens save lives and property and, yes, gun-control laws adversely affect only the law-abiding citizens.
Take note fellow Australians, before it’s too late!
The next time someone talks in favor of gun control, please remind them of this history lesson.
With guns, we are “citizens”. Without them, we are “subjects”.
During WWII the Japanese decided not to invade America because they knew most Americans were ARMED!
If you value your freedom, please spread this message to all of your friends.
