The ‘first’ Australians died out millennia ago.
Joe Hildebrand (CM12 June) ‘Recognize our first Australians’, needs to learn history. Indonesia, PNG, and Australia were all one land mass joined by grassy plains numerous times over millennia, Indonesia has possums, gumtrees; PNG has possums, kangaroos, 4 species of Echidna, gumtrees, in the mountains it appears the Tasmanian tiger (Dobsegna) still exists. Many races of humans also migrated into and out of Australia over millennia, in the 1400’s and 1500’s, Dutchand Portuguese sailors sighting the Western Australian coastline noted “tall natives in warfare chasing and killing hordes of “little” native peoples”.

While Covid plandemic is a hoax in Queensland – the real pandemic is the hundreds of cars stolen across north each month
by Jim O’Toole, Townsville bureau
Police warn public not to stop or hinder car thieves – just let them take your car or you will be charged with an offence
Commentary from Cairns police (below) is proof the socialist Queensland Labor Party has warned its corporate police to back off blackfellas committing any type of offences.
The inability of police to stop or even hinder the epidemic of black youths stealing cars and breaking into homes or business premises is no more evident than at the far northern Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander community of Bamaga.
Voters in Bamaga keep supporting the Labor Party which will eventually destroy them
A spate of break and enters in the struggling community has not been hindered by police action despite security footage, names and addresses of offenders and details of stolen goods being given to police for the most recent offences.
Requests from the community council and pleas by commercial operators to curb the crime rate have fallen on deaf ears of police and officialdom.
A rogue family of Sydney-based former locals has been terrorising local businessmen making threats of repossessing “their” land and demanding protection payments in lieu of rent payable to the local council.
While threatening the lives of local people, the leader of the Sydney extortionists and stand-over man allegedly made an official complaint to senior police in Cairns they are being harassed by Thursday Island police who were simply doing their job.
Local residents from the five communities are reluctant to stand up to the experienced southern thugs in fear of being bashed.
Police seem powerless to act. Prominent businessmen and elders in the townships fear their community will soon equal the unenviable reputation of lawless Aurukun on Cape York Peninsula which would have a detrimental effect on the tourist trade which is their only source of income outside of welfare.
The emerging trend from endless Facebook pages and constant media reports of black malfeasance in the Far North appears to reinforce the Labor Party’s suspected adoption of American-styled black lives matter hate ethos.
In the US, BLM activists in Democrat (Labor) states have been constantly demanding governors disband police departments.
According to some reports it would appear President Creepy Joe Biden agrees.
Black car thieves in Cairns hold the city to ransom
Vehicles stolen this month: 32
Vehicles stolen this year: 385
Vehicles stolen in 2019: 659
Vigilantes have stopped teenage gang members allegedly stealing hire cars by cornering and confronting the youths outside a fast food restaurant.
The gang of six allegedly smashed into a Thrifty car rental business in Cairns’ CBD at 7pm on Wednesday night before breaking away in three Toyota Corollas.
Vigilantes managed to track down two of the alleged thieves (above), believed to be 14-years-old, in a white sedan outside a Hungry Jack’s, surrounding the vehicle so they couldn’t flee.
‘As police we don’t encourage any form of vigilantism,’ Senior Constable Matt Cornish said.
‘So if you do see a vehicle that you deem to be suspicious or suspect that has been stolen we encourage people to contact police on triple zero immediately.
‘Don’t attempt to interfere or intercept the vehicle in any way.’
The three allegedly stolen Thrifty cars were located in different locations around the city – one on the Bruce Highway at Woree, while the other two in the CBD.
Police allege the gang had found keys inside the company’s Sheridan Street building, before smashing the window of the car lot.
‘Obviously these are only suspects at this stage and we anticipate once arrests have been made charges will be laid,’ Snr Const Cornish said.
He discouraged anyone acting as vigilants, saying citizens could potentially face charges themselves if the situation got violent.
‘People might feel like this is the right thing to do. (But) if you do commit a violent offence against someone, you could be charged yourself,’ he said.
Leader of Katters Australian Party Robbie Katter of Mt Isa is well aware of the ongoing crime spree across the north which he says can only be fixed by immediately exporting captured youths to remote training and rehabilitation camps, a scheme that has been proven to work for decades and pioneered by Geoff Guest OAM.
The Labor Party believes that this approach no longer works and that wayward kids should be treated with kid gloves. The recent Labor state conference upheld a motion from, of all people, their Far Northern branches including Tablelands, not to place kids 14 and under into any form of custody.
This age group comprises the majority of car thieves.
It is the Far North that has had the explosion of black and white youth crime in which these Labor dimwits live.
Cairnsnews supports property owners who at common law attempt to prevent their property from being stolen or to recover it by any reasonable means.
Letter to the Editor
Magistrate Stuart Shearer (CM 27-5) correctly said “The younger generation is a bunch of ‘Fragile Princesses’ who can’t handle being called names”, as he sentenced a man who broke into his neighbours home stealing $9,000 worth of goods and doing $1,000 damage, because he was called a “junkie”.
Magistrate Shearer (below, reputedly one of the state’s harshest Magistrates) said his generation was taught “Sticks and stones may break bones, but names can never hurt you”. This was once written on the wall near the blackboard in every school and should be reinstated. How about it Education Minister, get these words back up on the wall near the blackboard in every school.
State Schools with socialist agendas are a causative factor for massive amounts of crime and unrest in the community by NOT teaching the above, resilience, self-discipline, and tolerance. Our teacher would challenge us to see who could hold their hand above their head the longest, who could hop the furthest on their left leg and many others, to teach us self-discipline.
Almost every problem in the community has a base factor caused by lack of Self-discipline and Tolerance. The Victorian Government threw $2 Billion at domestic violence to solve the problem, the usual stupidity of politicians with their mental aberration belief that throwing money solves problems, without any consideration of identifying causative factors and dealing with reality. There appear no identifiable changes to DV statistics in Victoria, just a lot of people having jobs on big wages that will achieve nothing other than generating self-adulating reports to ministers that are quoted in the press as some form of (failed) achievement.
The ‘Delicate Daisies’ being created in schools by similar ilk cannot handle reality, life is tough, you have to do things you don’t like, you have to clean the toilet — its your turn. You have to go to work and be productive, and you will be told firmly if your work is not up to standard — No, it is not bullying, or racial discrimination because your skin colour is different to the managers, it is not vilification when you are told several times to improve or be dismissed — your delicate sensitivities and attitude need serious improvement, get up to accepted standards — grow up.
We have industries based on servicing these failed products of school, children are taught to complain if spoken to a bit roughly. We have legislation that drags us down to the lowest level of those who you feel bullied, discriminated, or need counselling if they perceive a sexist word was used. The whole discrimination industry and legislation needs throwing out, and complainants told grow-up, toughen-up, and learn that “Sticks and stones may break bones, but names can never hurt you”, or seek mental health assistance.

Editor Jim O’Toole: Is it any wonder the entire Queensland community in particular Townsville and Cairns are suffering the worst outbreak of juvenile crime in the history of the state. Older people are locking themselves in their homes, afraid to go shopping, can’t leave their cars anywhere in fear of being car-jacked or stolen and juvenile, mostly Aboriginal youths rule the streets with impunity.
Police are at their wits end. Courts have revolving doors through Maccas.
If you are one of many thousands of juvenile crime victims tell socialist Education Minister Comrade Grace Grace (below) to shape up or get out. We can guarantee her car won’t be one of the several thousand stolen each year in Queensland
“We own this land so get out of my way” Aboriginal youth yell at pedestrians walking along footpaths. When they were visiting holiday hotspots such as Cairns, international tourists became horrified after being pushed onto the road by disrespectful black kids as happened many times in recent years.
This disgusting behaviour has been fostered by a generation of socialist teachers in Queensland State Schools who toe the United Nations’, Marxist land rights line driven into them by the comrades infesting universities.
As a result a great deal of Aboriginal kids claim they don’t have to go to school and they can do what they like because “we own everything,” which of course they don’t. Until these misguided, budding criminals, some as young as nine, who regard going to jail as a badge of honour, are taken to remote rehabilitation and training camps and taught how respect applies to every person and that they are responsible for their own actions, the race to the bottom will continue.
Trying to involve the majority of parents of these runaway kids is counter-productive, children’s advocates have discovered. Their mothers and fathers living on ‘sit-down-money’ in many cases are too addicted to drugs and alcohol to bother.
Unfortunately the many good parents get tarred with the same brush through no fault of their own.
The socialist Queensland Labor Party will change nothing and have included even more jaundiced ‘Aboriginal studies’ into the curriculum.
During this four year term of the Queensland Labor Party, it is mooted the socialists will usher in Cape York as a separate, independent Aboriginal state, supported by the Cape York Land Council, Balkanu, their business arm and the Northern Land Council.
Most of Cape York Peninsula has already been given to Aboriginal groups who have their own local government councils with a handful of white CEO’s. Lawless communities such as Aurukun, where two weeks ago another spate of drug and alcohol-fueled stabbings saw more houses burnt down was unreported by any media.
It is not hard to imagine the fate of the many decent inhabitants of remote Aboriginal communities when they gain statehood.
There is no Aboriginal industry on Cape York, less than 20 white pastoralists remain and resources giant Rio Tinto dominates the limited mining industry.
Investigators have discovered the Aboriginal member of parliament for the electorate taking in Cape York and Torres Strait, was one of a number of Labor candidates elected by voter fraud at the October 2020 state election.
Consequently, a lot of Far Northerners repeatedly tell Cairns News they will not bother voting again in the Dismal State. More hard Labor and don’t expect any help from the hopeless, languishing Liberals.#

Over the past fortnight Townsville’s population of 174,000 has seen 300 home break ins and 70 cars stolen in a crime orgy unequalled anywhere in Australia.
Townsville police have warned it is only a matter of time before gangs of marauding, mainly black youths kill a resident in a home invasion or a homeowner kills one of them.
In the latest incident, juveniles allegedly forced their way into a Townsville home just after midnight on Wednesday and attacked a 28-year-old man with a machete.
Police said he was taken to hospital in a stable condition with multiple wounds to his hand and back.
A blue four-wheel-drive was stolen during the incident.
The 4WD Ford Ranger was later sighted at 4am and police began a short pursuit before calling off the chase.
Chief Superintendent Craig Hanlon said since Thursday, 12 people had been arrested in Townsville on 57 charges ranging from unlawful use to burglary and stealing.
“Of those 12 people, nine are juveniles and all of those juveniles currently remain in custody,” he told the Townsville Bulletin on Wednesday.
“The use of knives and machetes has to stop.
“We’re one minor issue away from someone being seriously injured or killed.
“I want to know what those family and friends of those people are doing … this is disgusting behaviour and it’s got to stop.”
Approximately 40 police were deployed across the city overnight to deal with a range of incidents.
Residents of a home who are invaded, threatened or injured have every right at common law to defend themselves with whatever means are available.
Guns are not out of the question and should be used as a deterrent against these anti-social attackers before these often mentally retarded* invaders kill an innocent resident.
Last year black youths stole a car from a home in Townsville after pointing a rifle at the owner and taunting him as he moved towards the offender: “You want to be a hero mate….?”
If this homeowner had a firearm he could have defended himself but Labor’s gun policies have left people unprotected and at the mercy of marauding Aboriginal youths.
It will take just one blackfella to be shot, then their gutless mates will disappear into the night when they realise Labor’s policies rightly have been ignored. People when threatened or injured will arm themselves and defend their families and property. That is their inherent right.
After all the homeowner is the first responder. Calling the police as the evidence shows often is a waste of time because the understaffed and under-equipped stations cannot respond immediately even if a victim was fortunate enough to actually speak to an officer on the phone.
Dial 000 and get an operator from anywhere in Australia or Police Link which is a recorded phone service requiring an email address to record a crime.
Labor is trumpeting its recent changes to the Juvenile Justice laws which purportedly allow magistrates to refuse bail to serious repeat offenders, but Katters Australian Party leader Robbie Katter and LNP Opposition Police spokesman Dale Last say the changes are superficial and will not and have not made one bit of difference to re-offending.
Mr Katter said the evidence revealed the crime rate is increasing even though the Labor Party had instructed senior police to downplay the burgeoning crime data.
*Data regarding young Aboriginal and white offenders in 2019 showed most were suffering from malnutrition or had damaged brains from petrol sniffing, illicit drug and alcohol abuse.
Woke culture in curriculum being forced onto young students places too much emphasis on Black Lives Matter
All lives matter – time for more parents to start home schooling
Albert Facey’s autobiographical tome A Fortunate Life would become required national reading in Years 7, 8 or 9 as part of the Australian Curriculum in a proposal floated by the KAP to prevent the further “woke” ideological indoctrination of today’s youth.
The draft changes to Australian’s national education doctrine were revealed last week and have led to heated debate.
The new national plan, which must be signed off on by the state and territory governments, effectually cancels any positive mention of Judeo-Christian tradition and frames the birth of modern Australia as an inhumane, colonial conquest that has led to continued Indigenous dispossession and oppression.
Islam is mentioned in the new curriculum eight times, but Christianity just five. Liberalism, the West’s defining ideological principle since the 17th century, is hardly mentioned at all.
However the KAP said there was one quick fix that would create some balance – introducing Albert Facey’s poignant, and quintessentially Australian, book.
KAP Leader and Traeger MP Robbie Katter said few youth of today would be able imagine the hardship the author, born in 1894 in Melbourne, had faced and overcome in his life.
Albert Facey’s father died when he was two, then his mother deserted him. He started work aged eight and being denied an education, grew up illiterate but later taught himself to read and write. 
He survived Gallipoli but lost two of his brothers there and suffered terrible pain because of injuries he sustained. He married and had a family, but one of his sons died in World War II.
Despite all this, the retired pig and poultry farmer decided to term his life story A Fortunate Life when he sat down at his kitchen table to write it in the early 1970s.
Mr Katter said contemporary Australia was so far removed from the reality of lives like Albert Facey’s, even though he was around until just a few decades ago.
“Mr Facey’s book is one I read when I was young and something I have revisited over the years – it is an incredible story and a very good lesson on perspective that many of us could do with these days,” he said.
“History is not for those who have an ideological agenda, and it is not there to be twisted to indoctrinate our kids – it is for remembering in all its complexities and learning from.
“Young Australians are being perpetually taught to be ashamed for simply existing, whether the topic is climate change and their involvement, racism or some other systemic inequality – they are being falsely led to believe the world has never been in a worse state and it’s all their fault.”
Mr Katter said Albert Facey was a self-described “Labor man” who believed the party stood on the side of the workers.
“I am not sure what he would think of the Labor party we have today,” he said.
The KAP believes the book should become mandatory reading for English students in Years 7,8 or 9 – while the book is sometimes currently used in schools, it is not mandatory.
The Australian National Curriculum serves as a framework for all Australian educators and students, but the new draft curriculum has been publicly criticised for being ideological and abstract. Further it proposes to delay teaching primary school kids core maths concepts, and places a greater focus on sex and relationship education in the early school years.
Not to be outdone by illegitimate Traditional Owners and the Cairns Post newspaper, Far Northern tourist operators have been trumped by the Northern Peninsula Area Regional Council which has removed the car ferry from the Jardine River for maintenance.
Now in dry dock the only land link between the Top of Queensland and the Peninsula Development Road to the south is gone until April 26.
Holidaymakers who made bookings for the caravan parks and resorts north of the Jardine River have been forced to cancel causing struggling tourist operators to lose significant income desperately needed after last year’s unnecessary Covid disaster.
Popular tourist camping grounds such as Loyalty Beach, Seisia Camping Ground, Bamaga Resort and Punsand Bay resort will have to lay off staff.
Punsand Bay resort operator Rod Colquhoun said he has lost the remaining 100 bookings he had saved after assuring tourists the Tip was not closed following scurrilous reporting by the Cairns Post newspaper a week ago claiming the gates were closed to the Tip of Cape York.
“Apart from the fact there are no gates anywhere, the Tip could not be closed unless the council did it,” Mr Colquhoun said.
“I have just employed staff for an expected busy Easter. I have now sought legal advice to claim compensation for lost income.
“The council could have done maintenance on the ferry after the Easter holidays which would not have affected tourism and not caused a loss of income for the service stations, grocery shops, the pub, the baker and all the tourist operators.”
Thursday Island tourism and the island ferry operator would also suffer significant losses as the Easter break is the start of the tourist season.
NPARC Mayor Patricia Yusia said the council’s hands were tied because the car ferry had exceeded regulated hours for maintenance and did not meet safety standards.

Tourists intending to visit the top of Cape York for the Easter holidays have been turned back by a fake news campaign emanating from the Cairns Post newspaper claiming the Tip is closed.
An islander from Bamaga, Michael Solomon, acting largely on his own according to Injinoo sources, has duped the newspaper into supporting his agenda of closing the Tip to garner state government funds to develop one of the Aboriginal freehold titles he was handed by the Department of Natural Resources in 2019.
Nearby Punsand Bay Resort owner and operator Rod Colquhoun has called out Mr Solomon for disrupting tourism and causing considerable economic loss on Cape York Peninsula including Mr Solomon’s community of Bamaga.
Mr Colquhoun said there had been hundreds of cancellations by tourists who had booked in at his camping ground and others across the Peninsula since the fake news was published.
“I ask Mr Solomon what right he has to speak for Pajinka when I have been reliably advised his grandfather is from St Pauls community of Pacific Islanders on Moa Island,” Mr Colquhoun said.
“Can he produce a certified copy of his genealogy?
“Every year I make major contributions and give my time to the local communities for school competitions, sporting events, rodeo and show.”
After determining his losses Mr Colquhoun said he would be seeking legal advice.
Cairnsnews has discovered Mr Solomon is a member of the Gudang Yadhaykenu Aboriginal Corporation which holds the Deed of Grant. This corporation is not recognised by the federal government and does not represent the traditional owners of Pajinka. A search of the Native Title register revealed the Impima Ikaya Aboriginal Corporation RNTBC (Registered Native Title Body Corporate) at Injinoo is the real native title holder of Pajinka.
The Ipima Ikaya PBC should clarify their qualifications for membership as Mr Solomon is unable to be a member of the Impima Ikaya under the Native Title Act.
Injinoo Native Title holders have said generally they do not support Mr Solomon.
The three Pajinka Aboriginal Freehold titles are held as Deed of Grant of Land under the Land Act 1994 and cannot ever be sold or leased for more than 30 years.
An examination of the aerial map(above) with the Aboriginal Freehold title boundaries marked in yellow clearly shows a gazetted road (Pajinka Rd) bisecting the three titles heading to the north ending at the base of the Tip. This road comes under the control of Torres Strait Regional Council.
The Northern Peninsula Area Regional Council based at Bamaga controls this road on behalf of the TSRC south to where it joins the NPARC boundary where the council then assumes total control of the road.
It should be noted the 50 acres or more at the actual Tip of Cape York is not legally controlled by Mr Solomon. Nor is the foreshore esplanade which is controlled by the Commonwealth Government. This can be clearly seen on the map.
Mr Solomon cannot legally prevent any visitors from going to the Tip by road or sea. Cairns News has been informed the “You are standing at the Top of Australia” sign has been removed.
The collective media has been bluffed and has not done any due diligence instead accepting the untruthful story spun by Mr Solomon and is not at all concerned about the economic and cultural consequences of its blunder.
Traditional owners from other areas of the Peninsula have warned there is a deeper agenda in place with the attempted closure of the Tip of Cape York. They are suggesting the long-term plan is to totally close down Cape York Peninsula to visitors and create an independent Aboriginal State.
Hence the ongoing Cape York Land Council Number 1 claim which seeks to tie up all unallocated land and land not already subject to native title claim across the entire Peninsula approximately north from the 16 th Parallel.
According to extensive mining exploration surveys in recent years, Cape York Peninsula has some of the largest and most valuable mineral deposits in Australia and is ripe for development, however the State reserves the right to minerals and petroleum.
Existing mining operations on the Peninsula already pay royalties to native title holders, separate to government royalties.
The Cape York Land Council has its finger prints over this latest partial closure and some TO’s believe Mr Solomon has been projected as a forward scout to take the flak. Sources said he had been in Cairns recently and no doubt he would have met with the land council.
The Northern Peninsula Area Regional Council is holding fast against a rogue traditional owner who has told the Cairns Post newspaper he will shut down Pajinka at the Tip of Cape York to tourists.
Mayor Patricia Yusia said today tourists should not listen to Michael Solomon who is claiming to be a traditional owner for Pajinka.
Nor should they take any notice of the paper claiming the Pajinka Road will be closed because “it will not happen,” said the Mayor.
“The road is open, nothing has changed and tourists are always welcome.
“The council is in charge of the Pajinka Road not Michael Solomon.”
The glaring headline on the front page of the Cairns Post claiming the gate will be locked on the Tip is more beating up and has no basis in fact because there is no gate there or at any other of the tourist hotspots mentioned in the article.
Cairns News has been told Mr Solomon is upset because the State Government had knocked back a funding application for works at the Pajinka site, hence the attack on tourists which impacts the NPARC community as a whole, not tourists or the state government.
It was just a year ago that other rogue Pajinka claimants from Sydney signed up for the sale of the Pajinka site to a Chinese company.
Federal Member for Kennedy Bob Katter raised the matter in Parliament at the time citing national security concerns and after several genuine traditional owners discovered the imminent sale it was stopped.
Bamaga sources, in a previous article in Cairns News, said that Michael Solomon was not a rightful traditional owner or claimant of Pajinka. The source said Mr Solomon is a Solomon Islander whose grandfather moved from the Pacific Islands settlement on Moa Island to the mainland.
Blackfella politics has always been part and parcel of life on Cape York Peninsula and in some cases it has become ‘dog eat dog’ over land claims and boundaries between competing groups.
Former Prime Minister Bob Hawke was a cunning operator and he knew the land rights bill he started would divide Aboriginal and Islander people forever. After Hawke was deposed by Paul Keating in 1991 the Native Title bill was enacted in 1993.
Allowing governments to patronise indigenous people by divide and conquer tactics means the government of the day stays in control of indigenous people leaving them entirely dependent on the government teat to exist.
White people too however have long been caught in this divisive net.
We ask readers to appreciate the damage being done to Far Northern tourism by The Cairns Post running fake news stories particularly after the Covid plandemic has left no option for the majority of Cairns tourist operators but to close down as soon as the federal Jobkeeper funding program finishes at the end of the month.
Where is Labor state member Cynthia Lui or Federal Liberal Member Warren Entsch?
by Senator Pauline Hanson
Today I attempted to use my Senate time to have the issue of the abuse and corruption that is rife in the indigenous industry debated in the Senate.
Sadly, the Greens decided to use every procedural trick in the book to run down the clock and silence debate, as you will see if you watch this video.
This is an important issue that has been swept under the rug by all sides of politics for too long.
It’s a shame that there are those in other parties who are too afraid to hear the truth about what is going on.
You can read my prepared remarks in full below. This is what the Greens didn’t want you to be able to hear.
I rise to bring to the attention of Senators and the people of Australia, yet again, the inequality that exists in the funding of Indigenous programs and the continuing desperate circumstances of the victims of this financial bastardry and mismanagement.
I learned of this in my many conversations over the years with indigenous communities across Australia.
Unlike many vocal urban aboriginal elites, I have walked through the streets of remote Aboriginal communities in Queensland, the Northern Territory, South Australia and Western Australia.
And I’ve listened.
And I understand.
Whether it’s sitting on the beach with Mullawop on Thursday Island or Jimpoona and her family at the base of Uluru. Just being in remote communities listening to elders and residents have been profound and very informative. There’s not one indigenous community I’ve met with that isn’t concerned and they want to share what’s going wrong.
A lot of these people can’t even gain access to their own land which has in many cases been given back to the registered native title bodies corporate which are often more restrictive than the government was.
Many of these Bodies, especially in more remote areas are highly restrictive to the detriment of the aboriginal people.
Some are charged to go on their ancestral land or worse still some are denied access altogether.
But those conversations in both the large communities and in remote locations, always turn to the needs that their isolation and situation brings.
- Needs reflected in a lack of adequate housing,
- A deficiency of infrastructure,
- Widespread alcoholism,
- Out-of-control levels of domestic violence,
- Repeated sexual abuse – including of young children,
- And a lack of effective pathways to escape the cycles of poverty and
unemployment that are often normalised and passed on from
generation to generation.
Those communities live on the other side of what the highly respected Indigenous spokesperson, Jacinta Price, referred to in the Australian newspaper recently as ‘the kasm’.
She described in detail how the aboriginal elite, the activists, the academics from the indoctrination centres posing as universities, those with their hands out for grant money, those with the loudest voices who want to change the date of Australia Day – they all live in the city – on their side of the kasm.
When was the last time you heard one of the members of the Elite in this place saying anything positive or uplifting about indigenous achievements? When was the last time you heard one of the activists who identifies as indigenous talk up the efforts of those in remote locations working to succeed?
The Elites, the truth deniers, they know there’s a multitude of ways to end the misery.
They know there’s a ton of money being poured into programs.

A heartfelt response to the article about runaway juvenile crime and to the idiots who voted for the ALP
So is the Qld Socialist Labor Government going to Reimburse all of us that have been broken into / robbed and had our cars stolen? We were lucky in a way because we had insurance to cover our car and it wasnt that badly damaged and we got it back , other poor people are not that lucky they dont get there cars back and cant afford insurance. The cost of repairs for the ute was around 8 to $9000 + we had to fork out $920.00 of our own money to pay for the excess .
Thats not counting what they took – Mob ph / $719.00 to replace / Drivers Licence 70 to $80.00 to replace / plant operator tickets have not replaced yet work bag with wallet $150.00 Dollars / small plastic bottle with $1.00 and $2.00 coins around $50.00 10 or $20..00 floating around in bottom of my bag / Bank Cards / Business cards /Spare keys for machinery ,Excavator key is over a $100.00 to replace and truck keys not yet replaced / ute keys $140.00 just for the key extra to have it cut / note book and leather cover my Granddaughter had bought me ( cant put a price on that ) to stop the notebook from getting wet when i sweat / breadboard stolen from kitchen sink / Tobacco $100.00 / lighter and ashtray / torches plus the gate POST and fence they knocked over stealing the car .Then the expense for security cameras / security lights + security alarms $300 + we were lucky we could install a lot of this stuff it has cost a lot of our hard earned money to be taken away by slimy little thieves that get a slap on the wrist and told dont do that again and released to go out and do the same thing all over again thanks to our Do Gooder Politicians SO WHO IS GOING TO REIMBURSE US not our POLITICIANS that are there to work for the people you can bet on that . We did have a second visit but the alarm scared them of but just to prove a point they didnt give a shit they stole a second ashtray out the back and another week or to later we had another visitor but she was caught on camera and has been charged with trespassing and she was well known to the police . So i reckon send these little Turds to a place like Petford and learn some respect and manners because later on in life it might be there hard earned money / cars and property that gets stolen because Karmas A Bitch Boys and Girls and this could happen to you later on in life . SO YOU POLITICIANS DO SOMETHING RIGHT FOR ONCE IN YOUR LIFE YOU LOT YOU HAVENT DONE SO FAR just destroyed our STATE OUR COUNTRY and our way of life . Dont get me going on that .
Residents demand Labor amend its soft-on-crime policies
Innocent bystanders killed during stolen car pursuits in Brisbane and Townsville
from Jim O’Toole, Townsville Bureau
Female members of the looney Labor Left got their knickers in a knot at a public meeting held in Mareeba on Friday to discuss runaway Aboriginal juvenile crime which is wreaking havoc across the Tablelands, Cairns and Townsville.
Courageously organised by Tablelands resident Bill Cohen in response to hundreds of break-and-enters, robberies, car thefts and car-jackings about 90 people turned up to voice their opinions on how to overcome the Labor Party’s soft-on-crime policy.
Cynthia Lui, the Islander Labor Member for Cook, which takes in Mareeba, naturally was nowhere to be seen.
Fortunately the popular Member for Hill, Shane Knuth, from the adjoining electorate made a great effort to catch a bus in Charters Towers and travel to Mareeba.
The intrepid Member’s vehicle was not available but he made the arduous trip anyway suspecting the invisible Member for Cook would not be there leaving the meeting with no parliamentary representation.
Apart from the fact he was asked to attend and speak about the only proven remedy for the indigenous crime tsunami. Mr Knuth has a bill prepared for Relocation Sentencing to a remote rehabilitation facility a long way from indigenous hunting grounds and their mates where they are taught respect and some hard yakka.
Queensland used to have this option for Stipendiary Magistrates until the United Nations-driven, Fabian Socialist, Labor mob of union soft-cocks changed the Criminal Code to make juvenile crime an art form.
Different speakers, most of them victims of young, out-of-control blackfellas, offered remedies from a rattan cane to incarceration in the bastille for years on hard rations and hard Labor.
Commendable recommendations no doubt but how to get the message to corporate Labor?
Parents of juvenile delinquents were targeted by speakers for not being responsible for their kids but how can they be when they are traumatised by their parents lying prostrate on the floor every night alongside empty goon casks and marijuana dumpers.
These irresponsible parents are tarring decent Aboriginal families with the same brush.
A similar meeting in Atherton held the following day resolved to ask MP Shane Knuth if he would start a parliamentary petition across the north instructing the hopeless ALP to set up remote facilities based on the famous Petford Farm model in the Far North, which is now defunct.
Facebook attacks on meeting attendees and obscene phone calls after the meeting to MP’s offices from a female member of Mareeba’s looney left, being staunch supporters of the invisible Member for Cook’s Aborigines, Cynthia Lui, have been noticed.
It is hard to understand how organisations such as Tablelands Justice Group can get handsome pay packets every fortnight but have never been able to prevent any juvenile crime for the years they have been funded.
Deaths of innocent bystanders and motorists due solely to widespread juvenile crimewaves rest solely on the heads of the brain-dead, treacherous Queensland ALP.

Serious juvenile crime has finally hit the sleepy Tablelands town of Atherton in Far North Queensland, set among evergreen pastures and running creeks when last week two Aboriginal youths pulled a 47 year old woman from her sedan, threatened her, stole her purse then drove off in her car to continue their crime spree.
Both are foster kids aged 15 and 16 and they have finally been caught by police after a dramatic car chase near Cairns.
Police said they locked down the tourist town of Kuranda while trying to locate the stolen vehicle and its occupants.
The car left Kuranda and headed down the notorious Kuranda Range Road but the stolen vehicle was stopped at the bottom of the range with road spikes and one of the offenders was apprehended by police. The other was located two days later and both were in custody.
By now these youths could be out of custody awaiting a court appearance only to go on to re-offend again. Similar to the tragic incident in Brisbane where a 17 year old criminal on bail for 50 offences allegedly stole a four wheel drive station wagon which rolled during a chase killing two innocent bystanders.
In Townsville two police officers were seriously injured when they crashed their Hilux four wheel drive patrol car while trying to apprehend brazen, young black car thieves.
Civic leaders from throughout the north have had enough of the Labor Party’s go-soft-on-crime policies which force police and courts to let offenders go free after they have been caught and charged.
This five year old legislative amendment has watered down any notion of curtailing criminal behavior by juveniles. It is why police do not put much effort into catching indigenous and white youth because courts do not impose any meaningful punishment.
The Youth Justice and Other Legislation Amendment Act 2015 has in its very first section:
Under the youth justice principles in schedule 1, it is a principle of this Act that a child should be detained in custody for an offence, whether on arrest or sentence, only as a last resort and for the least time that is justified in the circumstances. 1 2 Clause 3 4 5 Clause 6 7 8 9 10 11 Clause 12 13 Clause 14 15 16 17 18 19 20 21
After suffering several years of a continuous crime wave in the Far North by Aboriginal youths ranging in age from 10 to 18 years, community and business leaders have called for the establishment of youth relocation sentencing facilities to be modeled on the world-acclaimed Petford Farm facility operated by Geoff and Norma Guest which began in the 70’s until it ceased operation 12 years ago.
Katters Australian Party leader Robbie Katter has remote sentencing legislation prepared and several remote properties in mind to counter the black crime gangs creating havoc across the north.
Located one hour west of Mareeba the Petford Farm facility was originally funded by the State Government during the 80’s at $400 per week for a continual eight participants ordered there by courts.
Now aged 94 Geoff Guest OAM said while the government funded a minimal number of youths his attendance roll would normally show 20 to 25 participants each week.
Most kids, he said, would turn up of their own volition seeking help for substance abuse or alcohol rehabilitation based on a horse adventure. Other kids simply wanted training in a cattle station environment to enable them to find a good job before they went off the rails.
A one-off government grant of $200,000 during the 80’s allowed the facility to employ a school teacher and youth worker to assist him and his wife.
“They eventually left because they said the kids were too dangerous to deal with,” Mr Guest said.
Undeterred he and Norma soldiered on for another 18 years overseeing a total of nearly 4000 graduates from his all-encompassing course in which the WW2 veteran contradicted many norms of psychiatric and medical dogma. It was his unconventional, pharmaceutical-free, successful bush therapies which overturned decades of established medical orthodoxy attested by his outstanding world-first, non-recidivism results recognised at nearly 70 per cent.
He said a proper diet played a major part of his success story.
To this day visitors to the now-idle Petform Farm will not find one grain of sugar, one slice of bread, any flour or vegetable oil.
Wheat, he says, attributed to poor mental health of many of the students. “Soft drinks I found are an extreme health hazard,” he said.
“One can of soft drink a day equals 30 kilos of sugar a year. The younger they are the more susceptible they become.”
“Poor diet, tobacco and marijuana can affect female health for three generations.”
“The majority of these troubled kids are unfit and incapable of working. At Petford Farm I put them into fitness courses to toughen them up in readiness for a job.”
“The bad behaviour and mental health of these young offenders today can be sourced back to a poor diet and a lack of parenting and role models.
“Like a lot of indigenous people I have known for many years I agree there are few suitable ‘elders’ to take kids back to country to share knowledge and help with their problems.”
When asked how to fix this burgeoning health blight on regional communities Mr Guest said there was no silver bullet, but in his experience courts should order parenting courses which include financial budgeting and proper food preparation.
He criticised the delays in the justice system where sentencing of offenders takes months or years after being arrested.
“These young repeat offenders should be sentenced and have a penalty incurred within a week of being arrested otherwise they simply re-offend again,” he said.
“I am deeply offended the government is allowing overseas people to work on farms when there is an abundance of youth available to fill these jobs.”
He supported the re-establishment of community fruit and vegetable gardens and a return to remote sentencing facilities based on his Petford Farm model. Prison for most of these offenders should be a last resort.
Editor: Social media is alive with calls for indigenous Labor MP Cynthia Lui for the first time since the October election, to visit the largest town, Mareeba in her electorate of Cook, to experience the daily terror caused by juvenile blackfellas forcing the elderly to lock themselves in their homes. Break and enters, home invasions and property theft are at an all time high and now car hijacking targeting older people has reviled the Tablelands population. They are after Lui’s blood considering she moved her electorate office from Mareeba last year to Cairns out of her electorate, so she could better look after blackfellas from the Peninsula and Torres Strait. After all she was re-elected by a large proportion of these welfare voters who should not be forced to participate in an election.
Cynthia Lui is a puppet of socialist Premier Annastacia Palaszczuk and she is forever beholden to her every whim and fantasy after being appointed as Deputy Speaker and given a golden handshake of $400,000 per annum.
