A challenge to National Party leader Barnaby Joyce for the leadership will be the most retrograde step the languishing Nationals could take.
Challenger David Littleproud has as much electoral appeal as Joe Biden and is not much more savvy, knows little about agriculture or livestock and as former Primary Industries Minister, was at the mercy of bureaucrats when making decisions that affect agriculture.
Littleproud is the son of a former National Party State Education Minister Brian Littleproud, a teacher, and has little background in the pastoral industry or farming.
At least Joyce, the former St George accountant when a youth was involved in farming. Joyce has sufficient industry knowledge to realise what effect his decisions had on the viability of agriculture.
The exception being when the National Party treacherously agreed with left Liberals to Turnbull’s zero carbon dioxide emissions target set for 2050 which will have disastrous effects on livestock producers and broad acre farming such as wheat production.
Cattle and grain prices, presently, have never been higher and Australia is experiencing an unprecedented agricultural commodities boom thanks to Bill Gates and Jeff Bazos purchasing vast tracts of some of the best farming properties in America to grow soybean and other pulse crops to be used in manufacturing artificial meat or Tofu.
Combined with an orchestrated fertiliser shortage and unprecedented, high fuel prices, the US, like the emerging Australian situation, has been unable to maintain production.
Food shortages have begun, and the US Government’s FEMA has taken over food distribution after many deliberate fires destroyed food manufacturing facilities.
The US was once the world’s largest grain grower and exporter but it has now fallen off the mantle.
Gates the genocidalist and avowed eugenicist through his deadly vaccines is intent, as he has previously, publicly stated, to reduce the world population from 7 billion to 500 million.
Red meat, which he wants to replace with Tofu and insect mash, are much more environmentally suitable than red meat production according to his skewed ideology.
Now the Labor and Greens will be managing Australia’s economy the future of farming and the coal industry is seriously in doubt. Cairns News warns any overseas investors in agriculture and mining to divest their holdings as soon as possible.
Brown outs and blackouts will be the new norm for industry dependent on base-load power.
Private water investors will be next in line when the Greens start flexing their newfound environmental muscle.
However this could be a good move if the international owners of our water entitlements disappear, our water will become ours again.
