Incredibly the perennial Warren Entsch has managed to hang onto the seat of Leichardt defeating Labor’s gay candidate Elida Faith, a former Centrelink worker.
Liberal Warren was champion of the same sex marriage bill which passed through parliament last year after a dodgy postal plebiscite which saw 248,000 envelopes returned to the ABS marked ‘return to sender, not known at this address.’
These fictitious entries which originated from the roll remain on it. As a result you may use your imagination as to the election outcome in marginal seats, just like Warren’s.
In Leichardt, the Christopher Skase Utopia of Port Douglas is Queensland’s significant gay garrison and its foot soldiers to a man and woman (woops, fluid genderless persons) supported Warren.
Cairns has a reputation nationally and internationally as the ‘gay capital’ of Queensland so Warren was on safe ground taking the multitude of gays under his arm.
Ditto for Cairns northern suburbs such as Palm Cove which has a large ‘fluid’ population.
Similar to the result in many other electorates across Australia fearful voters simply wanted to reject the ABC/ALP/Green climate change rubbish and voted with their feet, ignoring the independents.
Fortunately only a few Liberal MP’s believe the UN’s global warming or climate change agenda which has been designed through the Paris Agreement on Climate to transfer even more wealth from developed nations to black juntas in Africa.
The blacklisting of coal by the ABC/ALP/Greens triumvirate and the potential loss of franking credits for several million retirees was the hapless Shorten’s Achilles heel.
As re-elected Member for Dickson(north of Brisbane) the much maligned Liberal Peter Dutton said it was the best help anyone could get after the Shorten-aligned GetUp doorknocked his electorate vigorously trying to slander his reputation.
Baseball bats, buckets of tar and feathers from battery hens will be in line for 700 anti-coal mine protestors when they arrive in the Central Western Queensland township of Clermont.
Led by failed former Greens leader and Tasmanian Bob Brown, the rent-a-crowd convoy plans to arrive in Clermont on April 28 to rally against the Adani coal mine.
Emotions are running high in the Central Highlands about ‘Mexicans’ infesting Queensland with their “nonsense of climate change and wrecking the Barrier Reef by coal mining,” according to Rockhampton-based mine supplier Stephan Hall.
“There will be hundreds of miners, contractors, ringers and truckies and people from local towns waiting to give these knuckle draggers a nice reception.
“I have heard of people taking baseball bats and other things to give the unemployed bludgers and their rabble something to remember that coal miners won’t be f….d about by these grubs,” Mr Hall said.
Clermont hoteliers and food suppliers have warned the protestors they are not welcome in Clermont and would not be served any food while in the township.
Mr Hall said the Queensland economy would crash overnight if coal mining was stopped in Central Queensland.
“When the Emerald mine closed the town was broke in a week and the same will happen to Rocky, Mackay and Clermont. Nearly every cattle property around here has a family member who works in a mine and the ringers will give them a big touch up.
“They will leave Queensland covered in tar and feathers. Bob Brown, the Greens, Labor and their poofter mates can go screw themselves not us!” he exclaimed.
The facts behind Aboriginal recognition and Clinton’s insidious influence over indigenous land owners claiming 60 per cent of Australian land area
from Gil May
Why have Australian governments tipped money into Hillary Clinton’s Clinton Foundation helping to kill our coal industry? That it gave Julia Gillard a job and effectively a platform to continually spruik Hillary Clinton for president shows just how this very dodgy Foundation works.
The Australian taxpayer shovelled at least $88 million into the Clinton Foundation and associated entities from 2006 to 2014, reaching a peak of $10.3 million in 2012-13, Gillard’s last year in office.
On the Clinton Foundation website, AusAID and the Commonwealth of Australia score separate entries in the $10 million-plus group of donors, one rung up from American teacher unions.
In 2009-10 Kevin Rudd handed over another $10 million to the foundation for climate research, part of $300 million he squandered on a Global Carbon Capture and Storage Institute.
Gillard also donated $300 million of our money to the Clinton-affiliated Global Partnership for Education.
Lo and behold, she became chairman in 2014 and has been actively promoting Clinton as president ever since — in a campaign video last December slamming Trump, in opeds trumpeting the next woman president and in appearances with Clinton spruiking girls’ education.
The Abbott government topped up the left-wing organisation’s coffers with another $140 million in 2014, bringing total Australian largesse to $460 million, according to a press release from Foreign Minister Julie Bishop.
And yet, apart from the beautiful friendship with Gillard, what did Australia get from the Clintons for all that cash?
A whole lot of trouble is what.
Wikileaks emails released at the time shows that Australian green groups have been secretly funded to destroy our coal industry by environmental activists connected to the Clinton campaign.
The email account of Clinton’s campaign chairman John Podesta reveals extraordinary details of the sabotage of the $16 billion Adani coalmine in Queensland, which has damaged Australia’s national interest and denied cheap electricity to millions of poor Indians.
Last August John Hepburn, former Greenpeace activist and founder of Australian anti-coal group the Sunrise Project, sent a crowing email to his American paymasters, the Sandler Foundation, which is also a major donor to the Clinton Foundation. (Founder Herb Sandler and mate George Soros funded another Clinton-aligned progressive group, the Centre for American Progress, previously chaired by Podesta.)
“The Adani Carmichael mine and the whole Galilee Basin fossil fuel industrial complex is in its death throes,” Hepburn wrote in the email forwarded to Podesta.
“I am going to buy a few bottles of bubbly for a celebration with the (Environmental Defenders Office) legal team, our colleagues at GetUp, Greenpeace, 350.org, ECF, Australian Youth Climate Coalition, Mackay Conservation Group, Market Forces and the brilliant and tireless Sunrise team.”
In another email forwarded to Podesta, Hepburn panics about a then Abbott government inquiry into environmental charities and discusses hiding Sunrise’s sources of funding to safeguard its charitable tax status.
Hepburn boasts about the latest legal blow to Adani, when the Federal Court overturned its approval and the Commonwealth Bank quit the project.
In it he now wants to “escalate the campaign towards the other 3 big Australian banks”.
And he mocks miners who “try to claim that there is some kind of foreign-funded and tightly orchestrated conspiracy to systematically destroy the Australian coal industry. (I seriously don’t know where they get these wacky ideas from!)”
The Break-up of Australia: The Real Agenda behind Aboriginal Recognition.
As if it’s not bad enough that foreign-funded activists are meddling with our largest export earner, Podesta’s emails also detail their insidious influence on indigenous land owners who blocked the Adani mine using powerful native title rights.
This alliance of green groups with native title owners is a frightening development detailed in a new book by historian Keith Windschuttle, The Break-up of Australia: The Real Agenda behind Aboriginal Recognition.
He reveals the imminent expansion of native title claims, either approved or quietly being processed, stretch across a whopping 60 per cent of the Australian continent, an area twice the size of Western Europe.
Already 6000sq km of the Kidman cattle empire in the Kimberley has been given, via native title, to green activists to be converted from productive cattle country to a wildlife conservation area.
“In return, the Yulumbu people get a paltry $50,000 a year royalty,” Windschuttle writes.
“As a flora and fauna sanctuary it is economically defunct for the foreseeable future.”
At worst, writes Windschuttle, the mooted referendum for indigenous constitutional recognition, proposed by Gillard in 2012, could pave the way for a separate Aboriginal state on native title land, funded by taxation, royalties and lease payments — passive welfare in another guise.
At the very least, the alliance between foreign-funded green groups and indigenous owners gives environmentalists the opportunity to take whole swathes of Australia out of the productive economy and shut down industries they don’t like, from coal mines in Queensland to cattle farms in Western Australia.
Thanks for nothing, Hillary and Julia.
As the Clinton Fund is now under investigation in the US, what has the Australian government done to recover our money?
Many people worked hard to pay in taxes, that would have gone a long way to building new dams for our drought stricken farmers or new hospitals.
