Liberal and Labor party deregulation of farm water allows this profiteering of $311M for foreign companies which pay little or no Australian tax. How much longer will Australians put up with this sell-off of our natural assets, particularly water
SINGAPORE (THE BUSINESS TIMES) – A unit of Olam International is selling 89,085 megalitres (about 89 billion litres) of its permanent water rights in Australia to a related entity of the Public Sector Pension Investment Board (PSP Investments), one of Canada’s largest pension investment managers, for A$490 million (S$452.7 million).
The deal is expected to be completed in December 2019, whereupon Olam will receive cash proceeds of A$490 million. The agri and food giant is also expected to book a one-time pre-tax capital gain of about A$311 million.
Separately, PSP Investments has agreed to buy about 12,000 hectares of almond orchards and related assets in Victoria, Australia, that were previously leased to the Olam unit, Olam Orchards Australia (OOA).
Both the almond orchards and the associated water rights will continue to be operated by the subsidiary, said Olam.
OOA has entered into a new, tiered revenue sharing arrangement with PSP Investments for the almond orchards, related assets and permanent water rights. Under this arrangement, OOA will pay PSP Investments a share of revenue from the almond orchards.
The agreement is for an initial period of 25 years with options to renew for another 25 years.
Olam’s managing director and CEO of edible nuts Ashok Krishen said: “Consistent with our asset-light approach to tree crop production, this arrangement will enable Olam Orchards Australia to focus on operations and continue to deliver best-in-class products and services to customers.
“I am confident this partnership with PSP Investments will help lead the industry in sustainable farming and agricultural practices, and protect critical natural resources, such as water in Australia.”
In addition to the sale of its permanent water rights in Australia, Olam is in discussions to divest and/or restructure various assets and businesses in line with its strategic plan. Some of these deals may conclude in this financial year, said Olam.
Its OK to feed koalas eucalyptus leaves; farmers get fined or jailed if they feed sheep or cattle mulga leaves to stay alive

The State Labor Government is moving to protect koalas in South East Queensland with new plans announced today to increase the protection of more than half a million hectares of land through a landmark new koala strategy.
At Currumbin Wildlife Hospital today, Premier Annastacia Palaszczuk said Queenslanders are able to have their say on the draft South East Queensland Koala Conservation Strategy 2019-24, which paves the way toward greater protection.
“We know koalas are under threat and that is why my Government has been working with experts, the conservation sector, local governments and industry on a plan to ensure they are protected into the future,” the Premier said.
“Today we are releasing a landmark draft strategy and draft mapping that outline strong measures to protect koala habitat and address the threats impacting South East Queensland’s koala population.
“New mapping identifies more than 570,000 hectares of land to be declared koala priority areas – an area that is twice the size of the ACT – of which more than 300,000 hectares is core habitat.
“We are proposing to implement stronger regulations to limit clearing in these large interconnected areas of high quality habitat.
“Ensuring the protection of these large corridors of land will address one of the main causes of a declining koala population, which is the destruction of habitat.”
The Premier said today’s release of the draft strategy outlines existing and future actions to deliver on an election commitment to implement the Koala Expert Panel’s six recommendations for protecting koalas.
“We have a once in a generation chance to ensure their survival in the South East and that is why we are asking every Queenslander to get involved.
“Particularly as recent bushfires have had a devastating effect on the koala population with animals killed or badly injured, it’s never been a more pertinent time to act.”
People will have until 31 January 2020 to provide feedback on the draft strategy.
Ms Palaszczuk also today announced the Government was providing $50,000 for koala care infrastructure.
The Palaszczuk Government is also investing $2 million into establishing a five-year partnership with the Queensland Trust for Nature to deliver on-ground koala habitat restoration in priority areas through partnerships with landholders and local governments.
Minister for Environment Leeanne Enoch said the strategy was based on the best available science to protect habitat and give koalas the best chance of survival.
“Sadly, science has shown that koala populations have decreased by 50-80% in South East Queensland habitat areas over about 20 years and nearly three quarters of essential koala habitat has already been destroyed,” she said.
“Koalas are an iconic species of state, national and international importance and Queenslanders want to see them protected.”
Minister Enoch said koala habitat areas in the strategy were identified using internationally recognised, state-of-the-art modelling, including two decades of koala sighting records, scientific research and existing mapping by local councils.
The strategy has been developed in consultation with a dedicated Koala Advisory Council, which includes members of both conservation and development sectors as well as koala experts, First Nations representatives and local government.
Minister Enoch thanked the Koala Advisory Council for its hard work over the past year and its commitment to striking a balance between conservation and the needs of a growing population.
Koala Advisory Council Chair Mark Townend said the strategy was comprehensive and addressed multiple factors that threaten koalas.
“I would like to thank each and every member of the Council for pushing hard to represent their stakeholders and helping to achieve a forward-thinking and realistic strategy that will protect the koala population in our state,” Mr Townend said.
“The strategy addresses all threats impacting on koala populations including habitat loss, disease management, vehicle strikes and dog attacks.
“Queenslanders can be confident the koala will be in and around our backyards long into the future.”
The strategy builds on the Palaszczuk Government’s work to protect koalas including annual funding of $1.5 million to the South East Queensland Wildlife Hospital Network and the $1.4 million Community Sustainability Action Grants program.
The new Strategy and mapping can be accessed by visiting www.qld.gov.au/seqkoalas.
How do 50 or more bushfires start almost simultaneously across NSW or Queensland? There have been no reports of lightning storms to speak of and just a handful of kids charged for allegedly starting fires near Brisbane. Power lines have not been blamed, so how do so many fires start in such a short time?
What is the end play? Authorities, some fire fighters, naturally the media in particular the jaundiced ABC blame ‘climate change.’ Well here is the evidence that something or someone is frequently changing the weather, causing unnatural fires and blaming it on climate change. Unnatural dry weather in the eastern states is driving the climate change hysteria. What has caused years of prolonged drought?
LAST month, the Gudang/Yadhaykenu Aboriginal Corporation took tenure of 211 ha of land in Cape York, including the abandoned Pajinka Resort and it is reported that Chinese investors are negotiating with the Traditional Owners to purchase the land.
KAP Federal Member for Kennedy Bob Katter shares the concerns of Northern Peninsula Area Mayor, Eddie Newman, that a takeover of the resort by offshore Chinese investors would lead to a dire situation for the Traditional Owners, and would be a major national security threat for Australia.
“I have been reliably informed that Chinese buyers have visited the northern tip of Cape York on at least two occasions to inspect the abandoned resort, with a particular interest in photographing the northern rugged coastline,” Mr Katter said.
“Concerns raised by Mayor Eddie Newman are that due to no consultation there has been no safeguards for local jobs and no reassurance that the profits will actually go back into the local community.”
Options for rebuilding the resort will be discussed at the Gudang/Yadhaykenu Aboriginal Corporation’s annual general meeting tomorrow, Friday December 6.
“Why would they want the most northern point of Australia? The closest point to Papua New Guinea,” asked Mr Katter.
“There are numerous questions here and I would think the answers are pretty ugly.”
Mr Katter has taken the step of meeting with Home Affairs Minister, Peter Dutton, who has the power to block such foreign investment if it were to proceed.
“Losing control of the Torres Straits would be a national security disaster,” Mr Katter said.
“They’ve already handed over the Port of Darwin and given away the Ord in Western Australia. Almost every big cattle aggregation is foreign owned.
“The defence and security of this nation is precipitation for extreme anger in the United States and, infinitely more importantly, for every Australian who is just simply fed up with watching day after day the sell off of their country.
“The suits are parading around saying isn’t this foreign investment marvellous, but one day they’ll wake up in
a country that isn’t their own.”

An excellent well detailed documentary with link below, exposes the perpetrators & who our real enemies are, right up to the snakes head. The SATANIC Rothschild.
We are today living in the world of the victors of that war and without an objective, rational and balanced view of our history, we are doomed to repeat the mistakes. After World War Two, the victors of the war not only went on to write our history books, infiltrate our media and public education but even going so far as to criminalize the mere questioning of the official story’s orthodoxy. The truth is, that our world today can only be understood through a correct understanding of World War II, the architects of it and the conflicts between Globalism and Nationalism. Between the old and new world order. The Traditional and the “Progressive”.
Day in and day out, has the post-war propaganda been pounded into the minds of three subsequent generations. Every medium of mass indoctrination has been harnessed to the task of training the obedient masses as to what the proper and “acceptable” view of this event should be. Academia, news media, public education, book publishing, TV documentaries, Hollywood films and politicians of every stripe all sing the same song.
For very good reasons, most people don’t trust the mainstream media anymore. You have already heard the official history millions of times.
This new epic documentary gives an overview of how Europe has been shaped in modern history. In it, you will find the secret history, where you will find the real causes of the events. Watch this series and uncover the real root causes of World War II. It will take you on an epic timeline that will transport you back in time and lead you on the journey through the Bolshevik Revolution, the communist attempts to take over Germany; hyperinflation during the Weimar Republic, widespread unemployment and misery, Adolf Hitler’s rise to power, World War I & II – all the way to the modern world. It presents the true historical events that lead to this world catastrophe known as the second world war, as well as the aftermath.

Did government agents light some of the multitude of fires?
The recent bush fires in New South Wales were deliberately lit in order to promote the idea that ‘climate change’ is the threat which caused them and that Australia therefore needs to enact policy to deal with ‘climate change’ so as to prevent further devastation.
It’s irrelevant who was caught lighting the fires, even if they were youths. These are third party intermediaries used for plausible deniability. The Australian government is behind the deliberate lighting of these fires.
Look at the flare up in the Jewish-controlled media linking the fires to ‘climate change’. It’s obvious. First, schoolchildren in Australia protested about ‘climate change’ and that fell flat. Then Greta Thunberg travelled to the United Nations in a yacht to protest about ‘climate change’ and that fell flat because nobody wants to be lectured by a sixteen year old girl being fed a bunch of lines by adult propagandists.
So, the people who want policy to be enacted in Australia regarding ‘climate change’ said to each other, “They ignored the schoolchildren. They even ignored Greta! Let’s give them something they can’t ignore.”
Australian citizens voted Liberal over Labor at the last federal election because they didn’t want the action on ‘climate change’ that Labor was promoting. The majority think that ‘carbon dioxide-driven climate change’ is a fraud, like I do. (Carbon dioxide exists in the earth’s atmosphere at less than 400 parts per million, which is less than 1 part per 2,500, so it doesn’t influence the climate to any appreciable extent.) Australians voted the Liberal Party into federal government at the last federal election earlier this year because it’s the lesser of two very bad evils. Scott Morrison is an appalling Prime Minister but Bill Shorten would have been twice as bad.
The Liberal Party pretends to be opposed to action on ‘climate change’ when it actually supports it and wants it. It knows that the majority of Australian citizens don’t trust the ‘climate change’ agenda, so it’s pretended to adopt the same mistrust in order to win their support. Therefore, if it’s going to be successful enacting policy on ‘climate change’, it needs to resort to indirect methods of lobbying the citizenry, such as deliberately lighting bush fires and then relying on the media to push the narrative that ‘climate change’ is the reason for the fires. The Liberal Party wants to end up in a position in which it is seen as having no choice but to enact policy to deal with ‘climate change’, since ‘climate change’ has become universally recognised as a threat by the citizenry due to high-impact incidents like the bush fires in New South Wales.
The Liberal Party supports action on ‘climate change’ because its allegiance is to the Rothschilds-led synagogue of Satan that needs action on ‘climate change’ in countries around the world in order to provide an excuse for establishing world government ruling over various unions around the world like the European Union, the African Union and the South American Union. There is a planned Asia Pacific Union including China, India and Australia, as well as other Asian countries. There is also a planned North American Union including the United States of America, Canada and Mexico. ‘Climate change’ is the fabricated threat to the entire world which the synagogue of Satan will claim, can only be properly addressed with common policies and methodologies enforced and implemented by world government.
The Rothschilds-led synagogue of Satan has been pushing the fraudulent ‘climate change’ agenda in earnest since 2008 and it’s had this issue on the boil for the past three decades and longer.

Co-founder of the Abel Danger news site Field McConnell used his right to a daily phone call, while imprisoned in Wisconsin’s Pierce County Jail to record a statement loaded with bombshells, relating to Ukraine, child sex trafficking, the ill-fated Malaysian Airlines flights MH-370 and MH-17 and the re-opening of a 9/11 investigation, with the help of Russia and Vladimir Putin (!)
As previously reported, Field McConnell, career pilot, 9/11 truth activist and co-founder of the Abel Danger alternative news website was arrested on November 4th in Pierce County Wisconsin. He’s being held without bail, awaiting an extradition hearing on December 2nd. He’s expected to be taken to a Broward County, Florida prison until trial.
McConnell was arrested for violating a temporary restraining order, when he broadcasted on the topic of Kim Picazio, an attorney in Broward County, Florida.
The sound quality is poor but I’ve done my best to transcribe what he said and to put it into context.
His first shock claim is that the Malaysian Boeing 777 aircraft involved in Flight MH-370, which disappeared on March 8th, 2014 en route to Beijing from Kuala Lumpur was the same aircraft (ID# 9M-MRO) that crashed in Ukraine during Flight MH-17 on July 17, 2014, which is what I reported, at the time.
McConnell states, “Broward County, Florida is connected to Ukraine, both by child trafficking, done by practitioners in Broward County Family Court and also, the ownership of the Twin [plane] to Malaysia Airline Systems, Boeing 777, registration identifier 9, Mike, hyphen, Mike, Romeo, Oscar (9M-MRO), which was operated as MH-370 on the 8th of March of 2014 and operated, again as MH-17 on the 17th of July, 2014.”
McConnell states that this plane was owned by GA Telesis, a Broward County corporation. As I reported on May 2, 2014, two months prior to the crash of Flight MH-17 in Ukraine, GA Telesis purchased the aircraft and delivered it to Tel Aviv’s Ben Gurion Airport on November 4, 2013, where it had remained “in storage”, as recorded on the Planespotters website – presumably, until it was used four months later, in March, for Flight MH-370.
In 2014, I’d reported that GA Telesis was founded and is co-owned by Abdol Moabery, son of wealthy Iranian immigrants. Moabery had previously been an executive at two George Soros-owned companies, Aviation Systems International and C-S Aviation.
At the time, I’d also noted Moabery’s affiliations with seven child- and youth-oriented charities: 1) His House Children’s Home;
2) Food for the Poor; 3) Kids in Distress; 4) Florence Fuller Child Development Center; 5) the ISTAT Foundation; 6) the Factor Foundation; and 7) the March of Dimes.
Do these children’s charities relate to what McConnell is referring to, when he says that the “ownership” of the plane are “practitioners” in child trafficking?
The next series of shock claims McConnell makes are his comments on the eventuality that the 9/11 investigation will be re-opened, in which case, “Russia and Vladimir Putin may be a powerful allies, with Trump’s 4th Marine…”
The reason for Russia’s involvement has to do with three Russian transport planes downed between 2012 and 2016 by the same secret “technology deployed on 9/11, in MH-370, in MH-17 and the 16-plus airliner murders-for-hire, collectively known as ‘The Baker’s Dozen’.”
A $1.9 billion road and rail package will boost the Queensland economy and drive more jobs, while getting people home sooner and safer.
Prime Minister Scott Morrison and Premier Annastacia Palaszczuk hailed the historic deal which fast-tracks spending on a host of road and rail projects all over the State.
The Morrison Government will bring forward nearly $650 million in funding and provide more than $680 million in new funding, with the Palaszczuk Government committing $606 million.
Prime Minister Scott Morrison said delivering critical road projects sooner, as part of the Government’s $100 billion pipeline, was responsible and considered economic management.
“We want these road and rail projects delivered as quickly as possible so Queenslanders can benefit from better infrastructure, but importantly we want to boost the economy now.
“We will bring forward more than $440 million in federal funding on top of the nearly $3.8 billion we will spend across the state over the next 18 months,” the Prime Minister said.
“By bringing forward these important road projects we will drive jobs, boost the economy and make Queensland roads and highways safer, while reducing travel times so people can be with their families instead of being stuck in traffic.
“We will bring forward funding for a total of 20 projects right throughout Queensland, including key upgrades on the M1, Bruce, Warrego and Cunningham Highways, and the North Coast Rail Line.”
Queensland Premier Annastacia Palaszczuk said the agreement means jobs.
“I have always said we work best when we work together,” the Premier said.
“We have called for a better deal for Queensland and the Prime Minister has listened.
“We’re getting projects off drawing boards to create more jobs in more industries and deliver the things that make people’s lives better.”
Both governments have reached an agreement on $9.3 billion Inland Rail project, paving the way for the delivery of the project in Queensland.
Deputy Prime Minister and Minister for Infrastructure, Transport and Regional Development Michael McCormack said the Liberal and Nationals Government is focused on job growth and strengthening the economy.
“The Government’s record $100 billion infrastructure pipeline is delivering projects people want and need, while providing employment opportunities and economic growth across Australia, in particular in regional communities supporting local jobs,” Mr McCormack said.
“The Inland Rail project is a critical investment for Queensland and is projected to create 7,200 construction jobs and a more than $7 billion boost to the state economy.
“We’re also bringing forward funding and delivery for key projects to benefit not only road freight but improve safety for locals and tourists such as the Rockhampton and Mackay ring roads.”
Queensland Transport and Main Roads Minister Mark Bailey said details of the projects included in the deal will be released shortly.
“This is a massive win for Queensland,” the Minister said.
“The Gold Coast’s northern suburbs are growing quickly so we need to start upgrades on the M1 at exits 41 and 49.
“Queensland’s money for those projects was already locked in, so now we can get on with them.
“We delivered a record $23 billion over four years for road and transport in this year’s state budget.
“This deal boosts that record investment and will strengthen the pipeline of work coming online.”
Minister for Population, Cities and Urban Infrastructure Alan Tudge said the new package followed a significant funding boost for Queensland at the most recent Budget.
“Since coming to Government we have committed more than $25.7 billion towards infrastructure in Queensland and this new package will now see around $10.5 billion delivered across the state over the next four years,” Minister Tudge said.
“These commitments build on an already strong track record of investment by the Morrison Government in Queensland through projects like the Gold Coast Light Rail which will contribute to our SEQ City Deal.”
KAP Federal Member for Kennedy Bob Katter has warned the Australian people that the persecution of Christianity is on the rise as Israel Folau again makes front page headlines for delivering a sermon in his church on Sunday which suggested the bushfires were a Divine repercussion of legalising same-sex marriage and abortions.
Mr Katter said, “I just toured with Pauline Hanson and we have some very fundamental differences but we work together for the good of the nation. I may disagree with Folau on some elements of theology and fundamentalism, but the intense persecution that he has been suffering to me is just continuation of the religious persecution that is taking place against Christianity almost everywhere in Australia.
“Is this any different to blaming the greenies for the fires? And is there any logic in the greenies blaming the people for the fires?
“They listen to the scientists with a different point of view, the scientists can argue, but theologists can’t. Clearly this man is a preacher and I don’t feel that a nation that kills little children before they are born is a good thing.”
“From where I sit, I’ve always voted for freedom in a society that is overly restrictive and there is no doubt that religious freedom is under attack here. And whether you agree with his comment or you don’t, rest assured they will come after you.
“They managed to take out Pell and Hollingsworth, and now they are going after the most prominent spokesperson for the Evangelic church.”
Mr Katter said that the history books tell of thousands of examples where the groups of people rose up against the persecution of their freedoms.
“Most of the world thought communism was good, even though Mao Tse Tung was responsible for 47,000 deaths and Stalin for 28,000 deaths. But we that belong to the English speaking tribe have prided ourselves on freedom of thought and expression and whilst we may attribute this to the German Martin Luther, and the Medici (who were also the Popes for nearly 70 years) Florentine family, both these people were characterised by Freedom of Thought. Tolerating and protecting even fanatics like Savonarola.
“Unfortunately for our enemies, history records that we Christians thrive on persecution. But even the most cursory reading of history will find that evil people don’t like being criticised for their evil – again, Stalin and Mae Tse Tung, McCarthyism, Salem witch burning, the Spanish Inquisition.
“People do not tolerate criticism or even people being different and not towing the conventional wisdom of the day.
“The great Thomas Jefferson said, ‘I do not agree often with what you are saying, but I will fight to the death for your right to say it”.
“Someone that puts moral convictions over his personal income, I find inspirational whether I agree with what he is saying or whether I don’t.”

Nowhere in the Cth Constitution is mentioned Political Parties or a Prime Minister, only a Federal Executive Council.
COMMONWEALTH OF AUSTRALIA CONSTITUTION ACT – SECT 62
Federal Executive Council
“There shall be a Federal Executive Council to advise the Governor-General in the government of the Commonwealth, and the members of the Council shall be chosen and summoned by the Governor-General and sworn as Executive Councillors, and shall hold office during his pleasure.”
To this end, all Members of Parliament must be independent and to influence a Member in any way is an offence, therefore Political Parties should not exist and are criminally liable for the offences of influence and collusion.
On and after the date of commencement of this Act, a person is not liable to pay any sum under section 46 of the Constitution and no suit shall be instituted, continued, heard or determined in pursuance of that section.
Original jurisdiction is conferred on the High Court in suits under this Act and no other court has jurisdiction in such a suit.”
COMMONWEALTH OF AUSTRALIA CONSTITUTION ACT – SECT 46
Penalty for sitting when disqualified
“Until the Parliament otherwise provides, any person declared by this Constitution to be incapable of sitting as a senator or as a member of the House of Representatives shall, for every day on which he so sits, be liable to pay the sum of one hundred pounds to any person who sues for it in any court of competent jurisdiction.”
As well in Common Informers (Parliamentary Disqualifications) Act 1975
…. (3) The High Court shall refuse to make an order in a suit under this Act that would, in the opinion of the Court, cause the person against whom it was made to be penalized more than once in respect of any period or day of sitting as a senator or as a member of the House of Representatives.” = TREASON.
So much for Separation of Powers!
