Burning forests to generate electricity is probably the worst green energy stupidity. It destroys forests, creates its own pollutants, is less efficient than coal to harvest, handle and burn and has a low heat value. If all factors are counted, it will take decades of forest regrowth to match the CO2 emissions of burning high-energy coal.
Most coal-fired power stations are built on a coal field with reserves to last the life of the power station. The coal is mined efficiently, the fuel is of known quality and sizing and efficient repetitive methods are used to extract and prepare the coal and convey it continuously into the power station.
The most infamous wood-burning power station in the world is DRAX in Britain. It burns more wood than UK produces and more than any other station in the world. It gets huge subsidies for felling forests as far away as America, then chipping and drying the wood and transporting pellets across the Atlantic. Every step on the way causes large emissions of CO2, but these are conveniently ignored in the mindless war on coal.
Australia’s greenie godfather, Bob Brown, became famous for stopping construction of green-energy dams in Tasmania. Then he helped the LNP win the recent federal election by opposing coal mining in Queensland’s Galilee Basin. And recently he revealed himself as just another NIMBY (not in my backyard) in opposing a proposed wind power project in his homeland, Tasmania. Why not oppose them everywhere, Bob?
Bob should also look into another green energy abomination – bio-fuels. Surely he does not support burning forest to generate electricity or growing huge cultivated tracts of corn, palm oil or sugar beet and calling them biofuel for motor cars?
If Greens want to reduce life-supporting CO2 (a foolish goal), they should be building houses out of old growth forest, not burning it. Then replant the mature milled trees with young trees that will grow much faster than old trees and burn the sawdust in power plants or use it to make compost.
KAP Leader and Federal Member for Kennedy Bob Katter has slammed a Federal Government Bill which will control how much cash people are allowed to spend as being a danger to the Australian freedoms; a danger which he thinks is greater than the danger to our lives through a terrorism event being carried out in Australia; which the bill sells as being able to reduce.
The Federal Government snuck through and tabled The Currency (Restrictions on the Use of Cash) Bill 2019 on Friday afternoon of the last parliamentary sitting while the House had risen and all Members and their staff were returning home.
The bill carries a punishment of significant fines and jail time of up to two years if a person is caught spending or accepting a cash payment over $10,000. If passed, the bill will come into effect from 1 January 2020.
“The danger here to our freedom is greater than the danger to our lives through terrorism,’’ Mr Katter said.
“Clearly there are a thousand reasons why people like to hide a little bit of wealth; and have access to cash.”
Mr Katter quoted George Orwell in his dystopian novel ‘1984’ saying “Big Brother is watching” and that a person’s right to privacy with some of their wealth is one of the most important rights that Australians have.
“I’m told that for every 10 people in China there is one camera watching. Now whether that’s accurate or not, in most police cases that have caught my interest, I notice that the first thing they go to is the security cameras and people have no idea to what degree they are being watched on a daily basis.”
The Federal Government’s key selling point of the bill is better control of the ‘black economy’; arguing that it will reduce money laundering and the purchasing of weapons on the black market, but Mr Katter warned that an increase in going digital will result in an increase in cyber-hacking and that the bill’s passing will open the flood gates on further restriction of freedoms.
“The Government promotes the bill as a measure to combat funded international and homegrown terrorism yet with the ever-rising digital theft and threat of international cyber hacking I wouldn’t be trusting my bank account or the authorities to protect it, nor should they be controlling it.
“The Government will argue that this is the one and only initiative that they will implement to eliminate the black economy however, once the bill is introduced and passed, they will have the flexibility to dictate many more amendments to the law. It will give the police the power to control your cash over $10,000.
“Once the legislation is in place, they have opened the doors to regulate and change as they see fit.
“The assumption that our cash transactions are due to unsavoury activity allows for the prosecution of the potentially innocent, it has always been innocent until proven guilty?
“I’m sure the Government and policing authorities’ intentions are good but the only people allowed to have guns in our society are the people in uniforms.
“So we have lost the right to protect ourselves and now our right to privacy has been taken away with this bill. Are the Government and authorities going to act responsibly? Yes, most of the time. All the time? No.
“All I see here is the undermining of the great principles of Magna Carta in the rule of law. Through insidious increments, ‘The means that is argued justifies the end’.”

The bloodless coup by communist China taking over Darwin Port seems set to continue as Chinese nationals move onto the Tip of Cape York Peninsula.
On a second visit to the Tip this week Chinese interests were shown the ruins of Pajinka Resort, nestled on about 700 acres of mostly undeveloped land , by members of the Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Wymarra tribe.
Local Aboriginal elders and genuine traditional owners for the area are aghast China could buy the three Perpetual Leases should the Department of Natural Resources allow the local government authority which holds the title in trust to be transferred.
A local Islander identity assisting the delegation, has applied to have the Northern Peninsula Area Regional Council transfer the lease into his name, which, according to local Aborigines, would allow it to be on-sold to Chinese interests.
A lease in perpetuity has no expiry date which means it can be held indefinitely.
The potential Chinese buyers have been reported taking photographs of the entire area including the rugged northern coastline sparking great security concerns.
It is believed state and federal authorities too are concerned about the Chinese delegation getting their hands on such a valuable and strategic site.
The Wymarra delegation has been proposing a new resort complete with a Greg Norman-designed golf course within sight of the iconic Tip.
Deep State has been caught out scrubbing the internet of any older mentions of the alleged shooter at Dayton, El Paso. The below obituary of Connor Betts is from 2014, but he was blamed for the Walmart massacre last week!
Give them nothing and don’t waste one second watching the liars who told you 9/11 was done by men in caves with box cutters. The fake media commentators like Tucker Carlson tell you Oswald was the lone gunman that killed Kennedy even though 95% of Americans don’t believe it and there’s pictures showing Oswald standing in the door of the book depository as Kennedy motorcade goes by! Oh and of course H.W. Bush and son G.W. Bush were both in Dealey Plaza watching it go down! And some of you still watch the liars of Fox News? Unbelievable!
Fox News in El Paso went off the script and reported the El Paso Shooting early! You won’t find this clip on the Fake Youtube of course! I had to upload it to Brighteon run by patriot Mike Adams! The woman says, “Oh that hasn’t happened YET!”

Lies Are Being Exposed the Awakening Momentum Is Gaining Speed
We're in an asymmetrical war right now and we're observing unconventional warfare tactics coming from the Mainstream Media.
I've been saying this for months but there is something very weird about humans. One of our greatest gifts can also be one our greatest detriments and I'm referring to our amazing adaptability.
We normalize things in order to maintain cognitive homeostasis and to optimize our ability to function. Before you know it, we've normalized all kinds of crazy things, just in order to just keep functioning. All kinds of bizarre cultural products have come from this, from haggis to Chinese foot binding to dare I say "Russian WikiLeaks".
So, I'm reminding you, again that we're in an asymmetrical war and that we're observing unconventional warfare tactics that are so ridiculous that they're getting hard for even normies to normalize.
There's an Emmy Award-winning journalist who contacts me from time to time. I wouldn't call her Red-Pilled but I would call her a real journalist and not someone who's being paid to spew propaganda in bad faith, like the bulk of the denizens of the corporate news media - which, I no longer feel should even be called the "Mainstream" or even the "MSM".
From now on, I will refer to them only as the Fake News because that is what they are. The Fake News is only worth paying attention to if you're curious to know the latest line of BS from the corrupt, Globalist establishment.
Last night, she wrote to me: "A friend thinks the mass shootings were staged to divert attention from the forthcoming disclosures related to the Epstein pedophilia ring scandal..."
I could have simply said, "Your friend is correct," but instead, this is what I replied:
Yes, there's some evidence for that.
This is a company that does emergency drills. They were offering crisis actors $375/day to be in a staged emergency to be held in Dayton, although the exercise dates were slightly off, starting August 6th.
The "manifesto" that has been attributed by the Fake News to El Paso shooter, Patrick Crusius that was posted to 8chan was not associated with any of Crusius' social media accounts. It may not even have been his, at all.
The "race mixing" anxiety in Patrick Crusius' alleged "manifesto" did not match his Far-Left Instagram profile, in which he described himself as pro-immigrant, pro-free healthcare for illegals and extremely anti-racist. His mother's MyLife profile describes her as Hispanic-American. Since he is still living, everyone will become aware of this, as his case goes to trial.
Given that we're in an asymmetrical war and that witnesses at both crime scenes described multiple shooters dressed in black, I can't rule out that the Crusius' persona wasn't constructed by the Fake News. His Instagram profile picture looks like a totally different person from his mugshot and there's this picture, that looks like a cross between the two, as if somebody were using NVDIA's generative adversarial network (GAN) technology to mix images of two individuals to create a third fake person, as fake as his "manifesto".
A company called Human Domain Solutions was soliciting crisis actors for up to $375 per day in Dayton, Ohio for a drill operation called VIGILANT GUARD to be held today.
Connor Betts, the Dayton shooter was a rabid Socialist who supported Antifa, Bernie Sanders and Elizabeth Warren - and he killed his sister in the attack. Yet both shooters are being called "Trump-emboldened white supremacists" by all of the Democrat candidates and by all of the members of the Fake News.
These pronouncements of the Democrat candidates and their flacks are unconventional warfare tactics. I'll remind you, again that we are in an asymmetrical war between the corrupt Globalist establishment and the US military-backed Trump operation.
Over the weekend, 8chan was de-platformed by its hosting service, Cloudflare, due to the Crusius "manifesto". 8chan then moved to Bitmitigate - who were, themselves de-platformed for hosting 8chan! They are still down.
8chan is where Q posts, by the way.
Cloudflare, who had been providing CDN hosting for 8chan recently received $150M from a Chinese concern and their guy was placed on Cloudflare's board of directors.
China does not want to see Trump re-elected. China is a one-party state where every citizen and every business must toe the party line, period. Thus, every dollar received by an American business from China buys influence for the Chinese Communist Party.
One wonders if much of the Internet censorship, certainly, of Google's censorship might not be analogous to what happened on 8chan and reflect the interests of the Chinese Communist Party?

Witnesses in the El Paso shooting reported seeing 3 or 4 masked shooters wearing all-black and one reported killed by police
It has many similarities to alleged New Zealand shooting
El Paso Shooter’s Father Was a Therapist Tied to John of God
by Alexandra Bruce
The two mass-shooters from this past weekend are being grossly misrepresented by the Fake News to push an anti-Trump agenda, in tones that can only be described as incitement to civil war. The press has lied to us so much over the past few years that there is no reason to believe anything they’re reporting about these mass-shooting events, especially with so many details coming out that contradict the scripted narrative that “white supremacy” is the greatest threat to the US.
Dozens of Antifa members following and followed by 24-year-old Ohio shooter, Connor Betts are mass-deleting their social media accounts as I write this but I got a look at some before Betts’ Twitter account was taken down. Betts clearly expressed that he was a Satanist who hated Trump, hated ICE, supported (Marxist) Bernie Sanders and Elizabeth Warren and he specified his gender pronouns as “he/him”. Last June, he tweeted, “I want socialism, and I’ll not wait for the idiots to finally come round to understanding”. Nowhere to be seen was anything about white supremacy. One of his shooting victims was his own sister. How Betts is being spun as a “white supremacist” and being blamed on Trump by the Democrats and the Fake News truly beggars belief.
Witnesses in the El Paso shooting reported seeing 3 or 4 masked shooters wearing all-black. Besides the one suspect apprehended, a second suspect was reported killed by the police to the DC Examiner’s Anna Giaritelli. Despite this, the Fake News quickly propagated a classic Lone Nut narrative about 21-year-old Patrick Crusius, while officials refuse to release any of the numerous security camera videos.
As seen in this video, Crusius’ Instagram account reveals him to be a Far-Left Progressive who is “Pro-LGBTQ+, Pro-immigrants, Universal healthcare for all, Free college, Agnostic, and
The “manifesto” published to 8Chan and attributed to Crusius has NOT been linked to any online account belonging to him and the authorities have wavered as to its authenticity. But before any confirmation was made, the Fake News reported that the manifesto and its anti-immigrant, anti-race-mixing views were his, even though manifesto’s ideology is 180º opposed to that on Crusius’ Instagram account. The MyLife account of his mother, Lori Lynn Crusius is still up and she self-reports to be Hispanic-American.
The creator of this video, my new favorite YouTube channel, Where We Go 1 We Go All (WWG1WGA), also shows us video of Crusius’ father, Bryan Crusius, a recovering addict and a psychologist who specializes in child psychology.
WWG1WGA gets into many other interesting details about these mass shootings and Bill Cooper’s 1991 prediction that these events would be deliberately staged in order to make the public beg to repeal the Second Amendment.

I’m so glad I don’t watch TV. I’m not saying this to flaunt my virtuousness. I’ve recently plunged into a Twitter addiction that’s a little scary but compared to how riled-up and weird people get when they watch TV, I’m grateful that I cut the cords with television decades ago.
I’ve long suspected that there are weaponized signals emanating from TV and I’d be a fool to think that optophotonic protocols aren’t also beaming out at me from the Internet but I do get a sense that the psychotronic arsenals might be different in each medium.
To learn more about such things and about the work that some are doing to demand and secure a Cognitive Bill of Rights, one might go to the upcoming Global Neuroethics Conference in Vancouver, Canada, starting on August 3rd, 2019, discussed in this latest piece by TruthStream Media.

Royal Commission required for age pension funds
Aged Pension Deception
Are you an aged person aged 65 or more and applied for an aged pension, when you have been industrious for many years and accumulated capital losses as contained in a family trust?
Have you then been told the following; Under the social security act, you are not able to receive a age care pension because you have been honest and declared the accumulated losses in the family trust which are now deemed to earn at an interest (usually 4%) a certain income (of money that does not exist and can not be spent). A typical scenario is an accumulated capital losses of say $750,000 then at 4% interest there is deemed to exist a mythical income of $30,000 per annum. Therefore this income prevents you from receiving an aged pension. Have you then been told that if you write out these accumulated capital losses, these losses are deemed to still earn this mythical income for 5 years. Maybe if you do this and re-apply after a further 5 years, you may be eligible for the Aged Pension.
Have you then been told that should you make any further objections, the social security officer would report this undeclared income to the taxation department and they would pursue the unpaid taxation, send you bankrupt, take your house from you and give you an imprisonment sentence for conspiring to defraud the Commonwealth of Tax Revenue. This scenario was established by the Hawk – Keating Government as a typical piece of Marxist legislation to cheat citizens out aged care pensions.
Comment… the aged pension was instituted in 1948 via a levy of 7.5% of personal income tax paid so at the age of 65 years, the aged pension was already paid for and actually owned by the Pensioner. These funds were kept sacred by all Federal Governments until Hawke and Keating 1980s and it is believed that this Government declassified these funds and transferred them to general social security and spent it all, subsequently inventing worker based superannuation to compensate. Should this be Correct, then it is not correct to assume that aged pensions are paid for by the Tax Payers as these pensions have already been paid for by the recipients. This scenario is worthy of a Royal Commission Surely?

from a West Australian mining executive
Wanted – a Lawfirm to conduct a class action Law Suite – GST Anomaly
The GST Act became operational in the year 2000 with all GST Collected to be transferred to the Commonwealth Government and then distributed to the States according to the agreed formula.
The Western Australian Dept of Mines charged GST on all tenement rents and services from 2000 to July 2010. At that time, Tenement rents were increased approx. 10% and the GST component was no longer charged through to the current time 2019.
Question1. Surely the GST charged from 2000 through to 2010 is recoverable along with compound interest unless the GST act was amended specifically to remove the requirement to charge GST on tenement rents.
Question 2. If the GST legislation was not amended in 2010, possibly, the GST on mining tenements is actually charged but not transferred to the Commonwealth Government as required by the GST Act. Should this question be answered in the affirmative, then this will compound into several more serious problems such as; tenement holders have not claimed the GST actually paid and consequently their tax records are incorrect. Additionally no shire council operating as a local Government Authority can charge GST on land taxes (as rates) as this is forbidden in the GST Act.
The shires that levy taxes on Mining Tenements can only do so via the formula where the tenement rent is multiplied to a valuation and then charge a percentage of this valuation which is false and fraudulent if these tenement rents actually contain an undisclosed GST component.

In its generational, ideological war against agriculture the Queensland Labor Party has delivered a final blow to the farming and livestock industries by closing down the state’s two iconic agricultural and pastoral colleges.
Amid a loud hue and cry from farmers and former staff, the state government has removed or stacked boards of management to ensure a fait accompli.
Several weeks ago sources revealed the prized Central Queensland Emerald Agricultural College irrigation farm was leased to a former director of the college’s board of management.
This valuable 360ha (900 acre) farm, which is attached to the college, two kilometres from the Emerald CBD has trained several thousand students over 40 years in the irrigated production of fibre and grain crops ensuring the state can prosper and generate billions of dollars in farm production.
Recently prized horses from Longreach college were offered for sale on Auction Plus.
Former students, now successful farmers have gone on to run their own farms or manage others bringing the latest technology to agriculture and cattle production.
State Member for Traeger, Robbie Katter said the closure of these iconic institutions was a national tragedy, considering their decades-long contribution to the economy by training younger famers to stay on the land to produce food and fibre.
Mr Katter said he is preparing to move against the planned disposal of the two multi-million dollar facilities and with the help of the LNP, force the state government to keep funding them.
Longreach Pastoral College has an international reputation for research and development of rangelands management producing cattle, wool and sheep meat in a semi-arid environment.
The horse production and horsemanship course is managed by Chief Instructor John Arnold whose acclaimed international reputation has drawn students from across the world.
The state government claimed low student numbers this year proved the colleges were no longer relevant to industry, but the seven year drought across much of the state prevented potential students from leaving their family grazing properties to study.
Or did parents have the financial resources to pay for tuition.
The vast Longreach training establishment showcased its 50th anniversary last year when many hundreds of former students converged on the college for a reunion.
At a time when sheep, wool and cattle have broken all previous market indicators the state government should allow and in fact support these institutions for the next generation of farming, instead of portraying farmers as environmental vandals.
The colleges could have paid their way instead the state government siphoned off most of the hundreds of millions of dollars revenue from decades of produce sales into consolidated revenue according to a retired senior manager.
The former manager of student services at Longreach Mr Bill Angus said he had devoted a lifetime steering students into running their own sheep and cattle properties across Australia and without the knowledge imparted by the colleges the ‘brain drain’ from agriculture would have had a serious impact on continued food production.
“Now I fear for agriculture,” Mr Angus lamented.ends

Biblical freedom = true freedom
We don’t need to lecture people who read Cairns News about the importance of freedom in Australia.
The Bible’s major themes are centred on the ideas of “freedom” and “liberty”, but diverge from popular ideas of freedom.
Many of us will know the story of Moses bringing the Hebrews out of slavery in Egypt or the famous words of the prophet Isaiah (61:1): “The Spirit of the Lord Jehovah is on Me; because Jehovah has anointed Me to preach the Gospel to the poor; He has sent Me to bind up the broken-hearted, to proclaim liberty to the captives, and the opening of the prison to those who are bound…”
Isaiah’s prophecy looks ahead to the ministry of Jesus, in physically and spiritually setting free the people of his time on earth and in the future.
Jesus confirmed this in John 8:35-36 in a heated confrontation with some unbelieving Israelites: “A slave is not a permanent member of the family, but a son belongs to it forever. So if the Son sets you free, you will be free indeed. I know you are Abraham’s descendants, but you are trying to kill Me because My word has no place within you.…”
As we know, Jesus went on to suffer a cruel death at the hands of his countrymen and their Roman rulers, but rose again from death to life to reveal his power and confirm himself as the Son of God.
St Paul, the main persecutor of the early church who turned key witness for it, made the profound, big-picture statement in Romans 8:20-21 that the entire creation is destined for freedom: “The creation waits in eager expectation for the revelation of the sons of God. For the creation was subjected to futility, not by its own will, but because of the One who subjected it, in hope that the creation itself will be set free from its bondage to decay and brought into the glorious freedom of the children of God.”
The same St Paul also had much to say about freedom to the Galatian church that had come under the sway of Judaizers i.e. those Jews who wanted to impose legalistic, Pharisee-like practices on the church.
In Galatians 5:1 Paul states: “For freedom Christ has set us free; stand firm therefore, and do not submit again to a yoke of slavery.”
But most importantly, Paul underlines that freedom in Christ is not simply being free “to do what you like”. “For you were called to freedom, brothers. Only do not use your freedom as an opportunity for the flesh, but through love serve one another.” (5:13)
True freedom puts aside selfishness and takes a higher path where reward is neither sought nor expected but where love is exercised for the benefit of others.
THE Morrison government is attempting to sneak legislation through Parliament to virtually criminalise cash as part of an International Monetary Fund (IMF) drive to bring in negative interest rates, allegedly to “fight recession”.
Negative interest rates mean you pay the bank to hold your money, but cash in hand incurs no such charge.
It means governments will exercise even tighter control over money than they and the central banking system already have.
Draft legislation about to be pushed through Parliament by the Morrison Liberals will outlaw cash payments above $10k under the guise of tax efficiency and combating “the black economy”.
But the Australian lobby group Interests of the People (IOTP) says the real agenda is all about the imposition of the IMF’s extreme global monetary policy in the form of negative interest rates.
“This represents a significant curtailment of civil liberties, and more,” says IOTP.
Australians have less than two weeks to respond and mainstream media appears to have ignored it.
IOTP spokesman John Adams says the Australian Treasury has released draft legislation which was initially announced in the May 2018 Budget by then-Treasurer Scott Morrison.
Nothing was done last year, but the legislation now proposes introduction on January 1, 2020.
“I was skeptical that this ban on (cash) transactions would come in but now that the Coalition has been re-elected, the Coalition with ScoMo and (Treasurer Josh) Frydenberg have decided to push this initiative forward,” Mr Adams said on IOTP’s YouTube channel (“Red Alert: ScoMo declares war on the Australian people”).
Adams says the government is claiming it’s to deal with tax revenue and the black economy but if this was the case, why didn’t they do it a decade ago when the GST was brought in as a way of eliminating the black economy.
“They could have easily introduced certain bans on transactions at that point, but they never did. So why now?
“It’s because not of tax revenue, it’s about interest rates. It’s about the International Monetary Fund. They’ve written a series of technical papers … about how to make negative interest rates work.”
Adams says the IMF wants to make interest rates “deeply negative” e.g. negative 3 to 5 percent, something never done before in human history.
And this would allow the central banks to implement controls on money and people never before implemented in history.
Adams says this will be sold as an initiative to stop the black economy, but in reality it is the first of a series of stages to eliminate cash.
The Treasury announcement came out at 5:12pm on Friday, July 28, in an attempt to limit exposure of it. Mainstream media do not appear to have reported on the plans.
The consultation period ends on August 12th, which points to an attempt by the government to limit exposure of the plans, while allowing them to say “consultation was sought”.
