West Australian Labor Govt set to ban scissors

 

A 19-year-old man has launched into a rambling outburst on his first appearance in court charged with the murders of his 48-year-old mother, her 15-year-old daughter and eight-year-old son in Perth’s north-eastern suburbs.

 

Teancum Vernon Petersen-Crofts (left) was charged after his mother, Michelle Petersen, and her son, Rua, were found dead and her daughter Bella was found critically injured at a house in Ellenbrook, about 30 kilometres north-east of the city centre, in the early hours of Sunday morning.

Officers went to the house after they were initially called to a convenience store on The Broadway at 1:30am on Sunday.

Police allege Mr Petersen-Crofts had entered the store and asked staff to call police.

They then investigated the property and found the two bodies, and the teenage girl outside the house fighting for her life.

Later on Sunday morning, officers found a large pair of scissors lying in a verge garden bed about 30 metres from the house.

Investigators photographed the scissors before placing them in an evidence container and removing them from the scene.

Mr Petersen-Crofts was remanded to the Frankland Centre secure mental health facility at Graylands Hospital.

Cairnsnews is appalled at such wanton murders. The alleged culprit is obviously a nut case. His ethnic appearance should shed light on this tragic event. All our thoughts are with the families.

Leyonhjelm rejects ‘misandry’ claim by Hanson-Young: not all men are rapists

Senator Fraser Anning moves a sensible motion to protect women from violence and allows self-protection

from Senator David Leyonhjelm

A number of supporters have contacted me in the last week to clarify what was said in the senate and why in the exchange with Sarah Hanson-Young. You may have heard media discussion, but many media accounts have lied about, misrepresented or distorted what I said.

The purpose of this email is to correct the record and allow you to judge for yourself.

The Greens nutcase Hanson-young should ‘stop shagging men’ according to Senator Leyjhohelm

Timeline

18/06/2018 – Senator Hanson-Young appeared on Sunrise following the rape and murder of Eurydice Dixon to speak on women’s safety. During this interview she said:

“I think that women around this country are sick and tired of being made to feel responsible for the fact that men cannot control themselves and deal with their own issues. It’s not women’s fault that men behave like morons and like pigs.”

28/06/2018 – Senator Anning introduced a motion in the Senate calling for women to be permitted to use pepper spray, mace and tasers for self-defence. The motion reads:

 

At various points during the speech, Senator Hanson-Young interjects. The video confirms her saying “that’s right” and “hear hear” at various points. It is available here (the motion begins at 12:06:15).

Just after Senator Rice’s speech, Senator Hanson-Young calls out something like “women wouldn’t need pepper spray if men weren’t rapists”.

I responded, “Well you should stop shagging men then, Sarah”.

Following this, Hanson-Young approached my desk and asked me what I’d just said. When I confirmed my comment she called me a creep and I told her to “f… off”.  None of this was captured by the microphones or reported in Hansard.

Later that day Hanson-Young made a statement to the Senate (shown below). I wasn’t in the chamber at the time.

In response I issued this media release in which I made the point that the exchange was essentially about misandry; that is, the labelling of all men as rapists.

That evening I appeared on Sky’s Paul Murray show where the issue was discussed. You can view the relevant extract here.

29/06/2018 – Media reports were tending to misrepresent the issue and leaving out important contextual details, framing the issue as though Hanson-Young was an innocent victim of sexism rather than a sexist who had been called out on her double-standard.

I was contacted by Rowan Dean and invited to appear on Outsiders the following day. I confirmed I was willing to appear but indicated that I preferred to focus the discussion on misandry rather than just my exchange with Hanson-Young.

30/06/2018 – On Outsiders I was asked about the exchange with Hanson-Young. You can view the video extract here. The transcript of my comments which seem to have prompted the complaints is as follows: Read the rest of this entry

NSW traffic cops prey on farmers’ drought misfortune

Cops hit hapless truck drivers with unlawful traffic fines

NSW Liberal Government just as bad as Labor when it comes to farmers and the transport industry

from The Land

Hay carriers are upset that they are being targetted for minor infringements on the Newell Highway as they try to bring relief to drought-hit farms.

Scores of hay trucks travel the Newell Highway each day, bringing hay up from Victoria, but according to one driver the Roads and Maritime Service inspectors were  picking them off almost one by one.

One major place to stop trucks was in the park at  Narrandera where Eugowra truck driver Peter Cox was hit with a $330 fine – but no infringement- for being over length. Ironically, if he had just one bale on the back of his truck he wouldn’t have copped a fine. But because he had 43 bales, his split-tray truck was classified as having two divisible loads.

He had to undergo a drugs test and face a log book inspection. He’d never been through a drugs test before. “Well, this is your first,” an officer said.

Peter Cox’s truck is pulled over at Narrandera and classified as overlength. He was drug tested, his log book was inspected and he was given a $330 fine for being overlength. If he had just one bale on the back he would have been legal.

He said the RMS was ruling the highway between Narrandera and West Wyalong, which he saw in most cases as just revenue raising. Mr Cox carries hay for the large Glenleigh Pastoral Company at Eugowra. He was bring hay from Boort in Victoria  to feed sheep. Because of the  drought, he is driving five or six semi-trailer loads of hay a week up from Victoria.

He said the NSW Government should show some concession to hay carters in the drought – as they had done on the Oxley Highway, where Triple-B hay loads were permitted.

“As far as I can see this is just revenue raising. I copped a fine but there was no infringement,” Mr Cox said. “I had 43 bales of hay on the back and I wasn’t over width, over weight, I was just over length. If you have two divisible loads you are illegal. Unbelievably, if I had just one bale of hay on the back it was a legal load.

“I told them that they were just targetting hay trucks. I said ‘We’re in the middle of a drought and you’re doing this’. I was told I could be legal, I just needed to go and get an exemption for being over 19 metres – but how many people know that. Then I had to go through a drug test that I’d never done before in my life and then they looked at my log book which doesn’t have one infringement. There are so many rules most farmers wouldn’t know about.”

Noel Pengilly, “Glenleigh Pastoral” who employs Mr Cox, said he also was pulled up at Parkes for a minor issue with brakes on a truck and was forced to drive all the way back to Forbes to get it fixed, which took just one quick turn of a spanner. “That was all time and money for nothing.” Mr Pengilly said.

“As far as I can see they are out to raise revenue, not protect the general public.” Glenleigh has over 60 registered trucks and vehicles. A comment was being sought from RMS and Roads Minister Melinda Pavey.

Late yesterday The Land received this response from Minister for Roads Melinda Pavey’s office:

“With large parts of NSW in drought and drought onset conditions, the NSW Government recognises the need for the increased movement of drought relief hay,” a spokesperson said.

“Operators transporting drought relief hay in NSW by heavy vehicles are encouraged to apply for high productivity vehicle access to the National Heavy Vehicle Regulator (NHVR) via the NHVR Portal.

“In order for the NHVR to prioritise drought relief access requests, operators are advised to list the word DROUGHT in the “Create a new application Reference”. The steps to do this can be found on the NHVR portal home page https://www.nhvr.gov.au/road-access/access-management/nhvr-portal in the News Feed section.

“The operator concerned may wish to submit representation for review and consideration by the Roads and Maritime Services Compliance Adjudication team, taking into account the circumstances and operator history.”

US agrees to ‘Full Implementation’ of United Nations gun control pact

Has Australia and Foreign Minister Julie Bishop also agreed to sign us up?

Posted on July 8, 2018

Free Thought Project – by Rachel Blevins

While the United States is typically set apart from other countries when it comes to gun laws, a recent conference with the United Nations has raised major red flags, as the U.S. agreed to enact “full implementation” of an international agreement on gun control that will violate Americans’ constitutional rights by adding their personal information to a global database.

The Third Review Conference (RevCon) of the United Nations’ Program of Action (PoA) on Small Arms and Light Weapons was held in New York last week with a 2018 agreement, which states that its purpose is to serve as “a renewed commitment to prevent, combat and eradicate the illicit trade in small arms and light weapons in all its aspects.”

A strong advocate for private gun ownership and the removal of gun registration is federal MP Bob Katter at a pistol range.

“We, the States participating in the third United Nations Conference to review progress made in the implementation of the Program of Action to prevent, combat and eradicate the illicit trade in small arms and light weapons in all its aspects, convened at United Nations Headquarters in New York from 18 to 29 June 2018 to review progress made in implementation and identify priorities for strengthened implementation, reaffirm our commitment to the full and effective implementation of all of the provisions of the Program of Action and the International Tracing Instrument, with a view to ending the human suffering caused by the illicit trade in small arms and light weapons.”

The agreement states that it will act as an “international instrument to enable states to identify and trace, in a timely and reliable manner,” light arms and small weapons, while “bearing in mind the different situations, capacities, and priorities of States and regions.” All the while, it will be tracking “progress made in the implementation of the International Tracing Instrument; note the challenges to the implementation of the Instrument, whether continuing, recent or emerging.”

The conflict and post-conflict situations addressed by the agreement include the need for “disarmament, demobilization and reintegration programs and community violence reduction programs,” along with international instruments, such as, “regular inventories, surplus disposal, including through destruction, and the implementation of appropriate measures when losses are detected.”

The agreement also listed management and security measures that would include “marking, record-keeping and, as appropriate, tracing by law enforcement authorities, for illicit small arms and light weapons that are found, seized, or recovered in conflict and post-conflict situations.” 

In order to implement the agreement on a national level, the Program of Action lists a series of requirements for each government to follow:

  1. To establish or strengthen national laws, regulations and administrative procedures in support of the full and effective implementation of the Program of Action.
  2. To strengthen coordinated national approaches for the implementation of the Program of Action, including, as appropriate, the establishment or designation of national coordination agencies or bodies involving relevant government agencies, including those responsible for law enforcement, border control and export and import licensing.
  3. To promote the full participation and representation of women in mechanisms relating to the implementation of the Program of Actionand to encourage strong cooperation with civil society, parliamentarians, industry and the private sector.
  4. To establish or designate a national point of contact to act as a liaison between States on matters relating to the implementation of the Program of Action, and to share and update this information regularly, and to provide the point of contact with the necessary means to carry out its role.
  5. To encourage the development and implementation of national action plans or other national policies in support of the implementation of the Program of Action by making better use of existing information to improve the measurement of progress and to coordinate the development and implementation of such plans or policies, as appropriate, in collaboration with relevant stakeholders, including those from civil society and industry, with those relevant to target 16.4 of the 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development and to the relevant United Nations resolution on women, disarmament, non-proliferation and arms control.
  6. To significantly reduce the illicit flows of small arms and light weapons, as appropriate, through illicit weapons recovery and voluntary surrender programs.

Americans who are reading the agreement may be thinking that in order to fully implement it in the United States, it would require a full repeal of the Second Amendment—but this Program of Action appears to be the overreaching plan that has already been proposed, in part, in individual laws introduced on national and local levels in the U.S.

Media coverage and calls for stricter gun control on the local level are having a real effect as multiple cities pass bans on “assault rifles.” Residents in Deerfield, Illinois, were forced to turn in all guns that qualify as assault weapons last month, or face fines of $1,000 a day if they did not comply.

The city council in Boulder, Colorado, has followed suit by unanimously passing a ban on the sale and possession of assault weapons, high-capacity magazines and bump stocks, giving residents until July 15 to comply. Massachusetts and New Jersey have also passed statewide bans on bump stocks, and police were shocked to find that only a few people complied by turning in the newly illegal accessories.

On the national level, when gun control legislation was introduced in Congress last year, it came in the form of the Fix NICS Act, which was later rebranded as the STOP School Violence Act and signed into law in March after it was quietly included in the 2018 Omnibus Appropriations bill. The legislation amends the agencies that have control over the National Instant Criminal Background Check System, which determines whether Americans are allowed to own guns.

As The Free Thought Project has reported, the changes to the NICS system—which received support from Democrats, Republicans, and even the NRA—put pressure on federal agencies and states to report as many names as possible, “making it only a matter of time before this list becomes so large that nearly any activity could serve to remove your Second Amendment rights.”

The NICS database will now continue to grow in the U.S. with government agencies receiving incentives for their contributions, and the United States’ involvement with the United Nations gives it the perfect setup to turn over all of its information on American citizens in the NICS database, in order to fully cooperate with the UN’s Program of Action.

As always, when rights are stripped away and civil liberties are ignored, it is done in the name of “safety and security,” even though, as history has shown, the opposite is true.

 

Labor prefers southern votes to croc protection for Far Northerners

KAP State Member for Hill Shane Knuth has again called for the State Government to ‘get real’ on crocodile management following the release of the 2017 Queensland Crocodile Management Update.

 “Today’s announcement reaffirms there is a croc issue in North Queensland,’’ Mr Knuth said.

KAP Member for Hill, Shane Knuth warns croc sightings have doubled in two years

 

“The Government is reluctant to make the tough decisions because keeping southern votes is more important to them than protecting the life and livelihood of North Queenslanders.”

 The Government’s update showed a spike in the number of crocodile sightings, jumping to 684 in 2017 compared to 378 in 2016 and just 176 in 2010.

 “This is triple the sightings reported from seven years ago and an 80% increase in sightings from 2016,’’ he said.

 “Those are extraordinary numbers and any sane person would argue it represents a large increase in crocodile numbers. Most people I speak to in the region tell me they don’t even bother reporting sightings anymore as nothing gets done, so that increase is only the tip of the iceberg.’’

 Mr Knuth said most North Queenslanders were sick and tired of the glossy, political speak from the Government and Minister Enoch’s assertion ‘the Government is confident that Queensland’s approach to crocodile management is sound.’

 “Obviously the reality is the exact opposite,” Mr Knuth said.

 “When we have tourism bodies such as TTNQ and TPDD warning of the effects on the tourism industry because of increased activity of crocodiles and the Government’s own report showing staggering increases in sightings, it begs the question – why isn’t the Government acting?”

 He said the provision of funding for drones to Surf Life Saving Queensland was a welcome addition to the organisation, but is not the solution to crocodile management or reducing the instances of sightings and beach closures.

 “It is great for SLSQ to have access to this technology, but it doesn’t solve the root of the problem,” Mr Knuth said.

 “We shouldn’t accept the increasing number of beach closures or beach sightings, as crocs shouldn’t be there in the first place. A zero tolerance policy regarding crocodiles on our beaches and in surrounding waterways, will drastically reduce the threat and allow our life savers to use this technology more effectively in patrolling stretches of beach not normally patrolled.’’

What happened to a free Australia?

The nation urgently needs a Donald Trump clone, to ‘Make Australia Great again’

 

Hammonds released from jail after Trump pardons them for staging a siege against the US Government and Obama

One protestor killed in cold blood by troopers

President Trump on Tuesday pardoned the father and son ranchers from Oregon whose imprisonment for setting fires on federal land sparked a 41-day takeover of a wildlife refuge in the state.

Trump signed the order granting clemency to 76-year-old Dwight Hammond and his son, Steven Hammond, 49, who were convicted of arson in 2012 for fires that burned on federal land in 2001 and 2006.

Steven and Dwight Hammond have been released from jail after President Trump issued a pardon for holding a 41 day siege involving hundreds of farmers and the FBI. One protester was shot in cold blood by police.

Morgan Philpot, an attorney for the Hammonds, confirmed to Fox News that his clients were released from a federal detention center south of Los Angeles Tuesday afternoon.

In a statement, the Hammond family said they were “grateful to the president and all who worked to make this possible, and to bring this about … We are very anxiously looking forward to seeing Dwight and Steven home.”

Though they served their original sentences for the conviction — Dwight serving three months, Steven serving one year — an appellate judge ruled in 2015 that the terms were too short under federal minimum sentencing laws and the Hammonds were resentenced to serve the mandatory minimum. This decision led to the 2016 protests.

“The Hammonds are multi-generation cattle ranchers in Oregon imprisoned in connection with a fire that leaked onto a small portion of neighboring public grazing land,” the White House said in a statement. “The evidence at trial regarding the Hammonds’ responsibility for the fire was conflicting, and the jury acquitted them on most of the charges.”

The statement added: “Justice is overdue for Dwight and Steven Hammond, both of whom are entirely deserving of these Grants of Executive Clemency.”

Dwight has so far served about three years in prison and Steven has served about four years. They have also paid $400,000 to the United States to settle a related civil suit.

The resentencing sparked a protest from Ammon Bundy and dozens of others, who occupied the Malheur National Wildlife Refuge near the Hammond ranch in southeastern Oregon from Jan. 2 to Feb. 11, 2016.

The armed occupiers changed the refuge’s name to the Harney County Resource Center, reflecting their belief that the federal government has only a very limited right to own property within a state’s borders.

During the standoff at the refuge, FBI Agent W. Joseph Astarita allegedly fired shots during the arrest of rancher Robert “LaVoy” Finicum. Astarita later was accused of falsely denying he fired two shots at Finicum or his truck and pleaded not guilty to three counts of making a false statement and two counts of obstruction of justice.

Joseph Astarita later was accused of falsely denying he also fired two shots at Finicum or his truck and pleaded not guilty to three counts of making a false statement and two counts of obstruction of justice.

This is the latest in a series of Trump pardons. – Fox News

Samoa seizes all MMR vaccines after two infants die minutes after receiving the vaccine

by Brian Shilhavy
Health Impact News

TV1 in Samoa is reporting that two infants have died within minutes of receiving the measles, mumps, and rubella (MMR) vaccine.

Tala Fou brings you breaking news on the death of two young children both aged 1-year-old from the villages of Safotu and Sasina in Savaii. Both children died within minutes of being vaccinated with the MMR vacine at Safotu Hospital on Friday morning the 6th of July.

Our News Reporter Alisa Faamaoni met with both families in Savaii today. The parents of the first child Marietta and Samuelu Tuisuesue of Sasina explained in detail to Tala Fou that within three minutes of their 1-year-old daughter Lannacallystah Samuelu being injected with the MMR vacine by a nurse she was dead. (Source.)

Two one-year old infants died minutes after being injected with MMR vaccine. The Samoan Government has confiscated all vaccine supplies to prevent any more vaccine injuries.

What is so tragic, and has this island nation in such an uproar, is that the parents of the second child who died had reportedly already learned about the first infant’s death a couple hours earlier and declined to have their child receive the same vaccine. The mother reports that the nurse administered the MMR vaccine against her consent, leading to the child’s immediate death upon receiving the vaccine.

The second family from Safotu is still coming to grips with the loss of their 1-year-old son Lameko Siu. The parents Punipuao and Si’u Timua arrived at the Safotu hospital with their son Lameko on Friday within two hours of the death of the first child once they became aware of what had happend the mother refused to allow her son to be vaccinated.

The mother claims that the nurse on duty persisted and without her consent vaccinated her son administering the MMR vaccine and within a minute he was dead. (Source.)

After the second death, government authorities immediately confiscated all the remaining doses of the MMR vaccine, and dismissed the medical staff, not only to apparently conduct an investigation, but for their own safety from an outraged public.

The Prime Minister of Samoa, Tuilaepa Aiono Sailele Malielegaoi, issued a statement about the tragic events and reported that, as a grandfather, one of his grandsons had previously suffered something similar, an apparent vaccine injury that he survived but now can no longer talk.
