Coal and climate change drain the swamp of Labor politicians

by Jim O’Toole, Townsville bureau

Queensland Premier Annastacia Palaszczuk is reeling after the Labor Party lost every federal seat north of Brisbane at last week’s election. Fed-up voters elected only one ALP senator for Queensland.

In a fleeting visit to Cairns on Friday to shore up its four state ALP MP’s, the Premier allocated just 15 minutes for each one to air their grievances.

Comrade Premier Palaszczuk discovered on Monday morning after the federal election that coal was not so bad after all

Pundits claim stalling on the Adani mine approvals and scaremongering over fictitious ‘climate’ change’ by the Labor Party turned voters away in droves from their federal candidates.

Even the hard-nosed, anti-coal mining Deputy Premier Jackie Trad joined with the Premier’s change of heart and discovered on Monday morning after the election that coal was all right after all.

These two hypocrites will battle to hold seats north of Brisbane at the next state election and rightly so as every city and all regions north of the Sunshine Coast, except the coal mining depot of Mackay are experiencing severe economic downturns.

Katters Australian Party warned during the federal campaign that every Labor- held state seat north of Rockhampton would be contested by its candidates, with some already campaigning in the regions.

Bob Katter’s spectacular result in the sprawling electorate of Kennedy left the LNP and ALP candidates speechless after he increased his margin by 2.5 points to 65 per cent easily retaining the vast cane, cattle, mining and tourism region.

Bob Katter has warned the Queensland Premier due to her alliance with the de-industrialising Greens she is likely to lose all Labor-held state seats north of Rockhampton

Although recording substantial results without spectacular numbers were KAP’s five other federal candidates who were bypassed by panicked voters in an effort to keep out the Labor Party.

Party polling officials in the hotly contested, marginal seat of Leichardt which extends to the PNG border some 1500 klms to the north of Cairns, were warned by Voting Australia to be on the lookout for voting fraud.

In the last federal election 18,000 voters across the nation were found by the Australian Electoral Commission to have recorded more than one vote.

No action was taken by the AEC against this fraud.

Just a small percentage of these dud votes would have enabled Liberal Party candidate and incumbent member Warren Entsch to get across the line.

In spite of numerous requests from voters to Prime Minister Scott Morrison prior to the election to ensure the AEC implemented the recommendations of the Joint Standing Committee on Electoral Matters for compulsory identification, the AEC confirmed no ID requirements were enforced at polling booths.

 

Shorten will tax us into Venezuela

After the ‘rich people’ have deserted the country and can’t be taxed any longer by the ALP, Shorten will tax workers and small business into oblivion and the death duties he has mentioned will take us to new lows such as crippled Venezuela

Australia Headed for a Perfect Storm…………

Thoughts from a concerned Australian including on the 2019 election

REASON : 3 current convergences

  • China bubble potential burst and commodity price collapse upon which Australia is so dependent
    1. 22% of all apartments are empty due to massive government building programs sold to individuals and producing no income. This bubble will ultimately burst. Similarly with factories etc
    2. The Chinese, with little trust of their government had been laundering their money through buying houses into what they considered safer jurisdictions such as Australia particularly Sydney and Melbourne, and forcing prices to record, unrealistic levels. The Chinese government has now cracked down on funds leaving the country hence a huge decrease in demand in those centres causing the current drop in the market. Some analysts believe the market in Sydney and Melbourne could drop by 42% at best case to 75% worse case.
    3. Dramatic decrease in demand for commodities upon which our economy depends as our main export destination for these.

    Would you trust this union hack with the future of Australia and the destiny of your kids? Only God can help Australia because this trade union fascist is under control of Islam and the International Socialist Organisation

 

  1. Housing market collapse as above-Add to the above factors the current Bank created credit squeeze during and since the banking enquiry where potential home buyers are having difficulty in obtaining finance. It appears the Banks are thumbing their nose at governments and showing them who the real bosses are by turning off the credit tap until the restrictions are put aside or lessened. Whatever their reason, this in turn has tightened housing and other markets resulting in the current slowing. Job losses due to the drop in the housing market will inevitably result.
  2. Shorten election policies if he wins the election-Socialist take from the “rich” to give to the poor -to pay for the freebies- Shorten’s promises amount to an increase in asset taxes to cover his spending spree on social and climate change programs. Just a few examples:
    1. Taxation policies – Shorten has misrepresented these to the population
      1. Franking credits -are NOT A GIFT as Shorten constantly refers to them – a FC is the tax that the company paying a dividend to shareholders has to take out of that dividend to pay to ATO before the dividend is paid to the shareholder– so that the shareholder then includes the dividend in their personal tax returns and pays more tax if not enough has been deducted or gets a refund if excess has been taken out in relation to their overall personal tax position)- essentially similar to the principal of tax taken out of a wage(PAYG)-you get a refund if your individual circumstances give you unaccounted for deductions. This penalises people who have sought to be independent and cover their own retirement and not rely on the government pensions or handouts. Their doing so benefits the government bottom line. IT IS NOT USING OTHER TAXPAYERS TAXES to benefit the shareholder but uses their OWN PREPAID TAX. If he cannot be trusted on a simple thing like this what does it say about the other policies and hidden costs and smoke and mirrors.
      2. Negative gearing– the right to deduct expenses and losses from an investment property from other taxable income. Essentially it can be considered similar to an equipment dealer (for example let’s say a dealer in trucks or bull dozers which can be of similar value to an average house or more) selling items and claiming any expenses or shortfall if there is one against their tax. Selling a house that is not a private home is just similarly a trading business deal with income and expenses with input tax credits. Why is it being treated differently re negative gearing just because it is a fixed building?

 

This in effect will decrease investment in property to rent, thereby increasing demand competition through under supply, thereby increasing rents. Isn’t Australia already suffering from a short supply and especially will this be exacerbated by the Shorten immigration policies of bringing in huge numbers of refugees already requiring huge government aid. The greatest effect will be on those on the lower end of the market who can’t afford it -rents could have a very significant increase. Shorten  says his government will then build 250,000 new low priced houses to fill the supply need – guess who pays- the taxpayer again. And if other schemes are an example (e.g. buildings for schools, insulation debacle) the waste will be frightening. Why not let the taxpayer be incentivised to  build, own and deal with the houses rather than government? Far more efficient and economic.

In addition to government housing, currently the government runs a subsidised rental scheme where private investors provide the house to rent and it is rented out to vetted poorer families at a reduced rate by the government subsiding the balance. This reduces government outlays. Why would an investor take the risks and outlays if it is not tax deductable. This would decrease with fewer properties then available to those in greatest need. This currently supplies an additional affordable housing program over and above direct government built housing.

      1. A string of others not elaborated on-halving capital gains concession in certain cases, death taxes etc. Venezuela was one of the richest countries but look at it now. Could we follow that path?
    1. Climate Policies-whether you agree with current global warming rhetoric or not, Shorten’s response to explanations that Australia cannot afford it and it will break the country is that Australia cannot afford not to act, yet all reports are that Australia’s contribution of 1.3% will not be measurable in overall “warming” of the planet or affect climate disasters. The policies have been costed out by an independent group as being approx. half a trillion dollars with the loss of 380,000 jobs and an 8% wage reduction for all.As an indicator which should raise questions : Look at the temp vs CO2 graph in Al Gore’s first movie An Inconvenient Truth which pushed all this into the public arena and seemed quite convincing- with the graphs separated so a comparison of timing of the movements in temperature with CO2 could not be seen. This was taken from an original research graph but in that graph temperature and CO2 were superimposed and this showed clearly ( and not surprisingly)that whilst both graphs followed each other as accurately portrayed in the movie, the key was that the temperature graph on the research document moved first and the CO2 graph followed. This could not have been anything other than a calculated misrepresentation in this presentation.CO2 is not a pollutant but the essential plant food and hence the main building block for all life on earth. Without it plants die (95% of the dry weight of a plant comes from the air- note the essential photosynthesis equations you all learned in high school biology classes). What will that do to the food supply? Death of most plants occurs below 150ppm compared to current 400 ppm CO2. An increase in CO2 will be a good thing for the planet as it increases the growth and production of plants and decreases water use( both gases uptake and release from the plant occur by diffusion through the stomata/pores in the leaf and hence increased amounts of CO2 results in faster diffusion of CO2 into the leaf and therefore less water escapes in the process) . As confirmed by the up to 30% increase in crop yields over the last 30 years in the Mid-West due to the 100ppm rise in CO2. This is worth billions of dollars to the global agricultural economy. Note also that nursery growers in various sectors release high amounts of CO2 into their greenhouses in order to greatly increase their productivity. Research has been confirmed by increasing CO2 to over 1000ppm (compared to the current 400ppm) and found great increases in productivity and also in drought resistance. Where did the huge growth come from in the era of the dinosaurs where plant growth was prolific with vast forests and the huge size of all living things during that era of high CO2 levels? It is reported to have been up to 4000 to 8000 ppm in the atmosphere and life obviously flourished.
    2. This is concerning especially when considered in the light of Princeton University physics Professor William Happer’s explanation of the logarithmic effect of adding more CO2 to the atmosphere (i.e. as CO2rates rise it takes double the CO2 to produce each degree of temperature rise ) and that we are in an historical Greenhouse drought. If you assume all of the temperature rise of 0.8 degrees Celsius over the last 100 years with an increase from 300 to 400ppm of CO2 was due to CO2 (which it is not anyway), to get the same 0.8 rise we would need a doubling of the CO2 and a further doubling to add each 0.8 of a degree as the amount of CO2 rises. Is destroying Australia economically worth “no result” environmentally. Add to this the fact that CO2 is only 0.04% of the atmosphere compared to say water vapour which is a far more effective greenhouse gas due to the quantity( So to be genuine they should tell us to limit the water vapour ?– but at least they don’t think we are stupid enough to fall for that suggestion).
    3. And what if Climate change theories are wrong??? There is a plethora of research contradicting the current public theories

Firebomb takes election campaign to a new low in Far Northern Qld seat of Leichardt

Sabotage of hundreds of election signs by Greens supporters, a firebomb, a stolen trailer, prosecution of a union member and a protracted offensive against independent candidates by News Ltd’s Cairns Post newspaper so far have marred the 2019 federal election campaign.

Candidates said although they knew they would be ignored or maligned by the Cairns Post, the newspaper’s exceptionally favourable promotion of sitting Liberal member Warren Entsch has gone far beyond expectations.

Entsch was the champion of gay marriage legislation last year which divided the nation on religious principles. Analysis of the plebiscite results since the passing of legislation has revealed the results were dodgy at the very least.

Vote Australia analysed the Australian Electoral Commission database from where the Australian Bureau of Statistics got its addresses. More then 248,000 envelopes marked “return to sender not known at this address” came back to the ABS.

The ABS did not give these names to the AEC enabling it to cleanse the roll.

These fictitious names remain on the electoral roll which allows those having access to these entries to register a dud vote at the federal election, a ploy developed by the Labor and Liberal parties some 30 years ago.

At the last federal election according to the AEC, at least 18,000 persons voted more than once in support of the ALP slogan ‘vote early and vote often comrade.’

The Townsville seat of Herbert, being hotly contested by Clive Palmer, was ‘won’ by the ALP at the last election by just 37 votes.

In spite of hundreds of requests to Prime Minister Morrison from constituents, he has steadfastly refused to follow the recommendations of the Joint Standing Committee on Electoral Matters to make voters provide identification when voting.

Leichardt is a marginal seat and voting fraud could be a lifeline for Warren Entsch or the saviour of ALP candidate and union hack Elida Faith.

Katters Australian Party candidate and charter boat skipper Dan McCarthy now is being attacked through social media by the Electrical Trades Union which is a sure indicator of his surge in the polls.

Once upon a time such election frivolity occurred only in corrupt Asian or African dictatorships, but it seems these tin pot nations had their training upgraded in Australia.

Vote fraud could cost Scomo government – ID required

by Jim O’Toole

“The mail-out by the Australian Bureau of Statistics to conduct the same-sex marriage survey in 2017 resulted in more than 248,000 individual envelopes marked ‘return to sender’  being returned to their office unopened.”

Turning up to vote at a state or federal election is the cornerstone of the democratic process, some politicians declare, but what if your vote no longer counts?

If you live in a marginal electorate where the result of an election hinges on just a few votes, each ballot paper is critical usually for either a Liberal or Labor candidate to decide their individual fate or perhaps who actually forms government.

What if there are more than 248,000 names on the Australian electoral roll which have been confirmed as unknown?

The mail-out by the Australian Bureau of Statistics to conduct the same-sex marriage survey in 2017 resulted in more than 248,000 individual envelopes marked ‘return to sender’  being returned to their office unopened.

The ABS has confirmed this incredible figure some of which it says could comprise those who did not wish to take part in the survey. It could also include those who had recently moved house or other names which simply are fictitious.

More worrying is the admission by the ABS that a quarter of a million envelopes marked ‘return to sender’ were destroyed.

The ABS advised it did not give names of the unknown addressees to the AEC to enable it to update the roll before shredding the envelopes.

The ABS used Australian Electoral Commission data direct from the electoral roll to address the 12,727,920 envelopes mailed through Australia Post.

The result of the federal election scheduled for May  almost certainly will be affected by vote fraud after the ABS disclosed there are more than 248,000 fictitious names on the roll

This means as of December 22, 2018 there were 248,000 names on the roll whose identity has not been confirmed.

In the federal seat of Herbert in Townsville at the 2016 election just 37 votes after a recount separated the ALP winner from the Liberal loser.

Having 248,000 votes up their sleeve will dictate the result of every election. But who would do that?

Correspondence in 2017 between Chairman of Vote Australia Lex Stewart and the ABS reveals  that … “during survey operations, letters which were marked return to sender (RTS) were sent via Australia Post to our processing contractor Fuji Xerox’s Sydney site.  This material was then kept separate from the millions of completed and returned surveys.

The letter continued, “Note that some envelopes may have been marked RTS because the recipient did not wish to participate in the survey and was returning the material.

“Once the completed surveys were scanned and processed, Fuji Xerox scanned the RTS mail held and sent this barcode data back to the ABS.

“All materials from the AMLPS has now been destroyed in accordance with industry best practice, Government secured document certification standards, and all relevant requirements of the Australian Governments Protective Security Policy Framework (PSPF)

“As at 24 November there had been 248,000 RTS mail items received.  We are unable to provide an exact final figure of RTS material from the AMLPS as we continue to receive RTS material.  This is because RTS is low priority mail for Australia Post, and we expect to keep receiving this especially from remote areas, for the next few months.

“The ABS will provide some aggregate metrics to the AEC on the volume of returned mail by area in order to assist with electoral maintenance or other future AEC activities. The ABS will not provide name or address information from the Australian Marriage Law Postal Survey to the AEC.”  

After the 2016 federal election the AEC confirmed there were 18,000 voters who voted more than once.

Embedded in ALP-union genes, the motto for polling day is ‘vote early and often comrade’.

It is no secret in union circles that moles within the AEC supply bogus names and address lists to unionists and others complicit in voting fraud to use at polling booths across a given electorate.

Booth workers from all parties have reported busloads of voters converging on a polling place to vote with lists of fictitious names at correct addresses.

Senator Len Harris’ office in 2004 was given 16 AEC envelopes addressed with false names at a single legitimate address in St Lucia, a Brisbane suburb not far from Queensland University.

Compulsory ID will prevent much of this fraud but what of previous elections which have been won by dud votes?

Vote Australia Chairman Lex Stewart said he and his organisation had been warning the AEC and the Joint Standing Committee on Electoral Matters for more than 15 years that the roll contained hundreds of thousands of fictitious entries.

Finally the JSCEM in a 2018 review recommended the federal government introduce voter ID at federal elections to be produced by a voter before applying for a ballot paper at a polling booth.

In 2014 the JSCEM held its usual post-election inquiry into the conduct of the 2013 election.

Then Acting AEC Electoral Commissioner, Thomas Rogers observed there were startling differences between the NSW state roll and the federal roll.

“Yesterday the committee asked the New South Wales state manager, Mr Orr, for information on roll divergence in New South Wales. I have with me information by State on the divergence, and I am happy to discuss this with this committee,” Mr Rogers said.

“But, as an example, in New South Wales as at 30 September 2014 there were 139,898 more electors on the New South Wales state roll than the federal roll.

“And there were also 102,427 electors enrolled at different addresses. As you can see from this example, the divergence is a very significant issue …. ”

Mr Stewart said the cessation of physical habitation checks by the AEC of every Australian household some years ago has resulted in a completely inaccurate roll which has a sufficient number of fictitious entries to change the result of an election.

“The NSW Electoral Roll for the 28/3/15 election contained 5,040,662 entries.

“This ‘divergence’ between the two Rolls of 139,898 was therefore 2.8%,

‘very significant’ is a euphemism for ‘disgraceful !

“The AEC also admitted that this ‘divergence’ was higher than it had ever been!

“The discrepancy of 102,427 on both Rolls but at different addresses was 2.0%

“The divergence plus the discrepancy add up to 242,325 or 4.8% of the roll !

“Is it suspicious that such a record amount of divergence-plus-discrepancy occurred only a short time before the NSW State election ?

“How reliable could the result of the 2015 NSW State election have been, based on such deficient electoral rolls ?

“The total of 242,325 is an average of 2,594 per 93 state electorates

“Many seats are won or lost by margins of less than 1,000 votes

How many seats were swung by bogus votes from bogus enrolments?” Mr Stewart asked.

By-elections voting fraud expected

 

Can we rely on By-election results being correct?

On Sunday 22July 2018 on SkyNews, doubts were cast whether we can trust the results of the looming five By-elections.

Our Electoral Rolls lack integrity, thus enabling Vote Frauds,” said Lex Stewart, President of Vote Australia on the Outsiders program, where Rowan Dean asked questions about a list of 16 Electoral fraud cases in Australia, while Ross Cameron provided horrific information about Vote Frauds in USA.

It is not just me who is concerned. Reports by the Australian National Audit office state that the Electoral Rolls are in a shambles.”

Official advice to me recently is that the Electoral Roll contains at least 248,000 incorrect enrolments, many of which have been deliberately falsified.”

Salim Mehajer, Deputy Mayor in Auburn, was sent to jail a month ago for deliberately adding fraudulent names to the Electoral Roll.

Noreen Hay in Wollongong is another example of many that Vote Australia could provide.

Also Australia is one of the few countries in the world that lacks a requirement on voters to identify themselves when they go to Polling places to vote,” said Mr Stewart.

Voter ID is required in most countries. Kenya and Iraq introduced it last year.”

Using Vote Frauds, marginal seats can be won by candidates who are not the ones for whom the majority of voters truly voted for.

Our voting systems are simply not capable of delivering true Democracy,” said Mr Stewart.

“The government needs urgently to consider amending the Commonwealth Electoral Act to curb Vote Frauds.

Senate orders inquiry into the sacking of Senators Culleton and Day

Submissions called to investigate the unlawful removal of Senator Rod Culleton from the senate earlier this year.

What really happened?  Why did the Attorney General Liberal George Brandis, intentionally mislead the senate about Culleton and how did the Senate President Stephen Parry(former Port Arthur undertaker) remove Culleton without a motion of the senate? Section 47 of the Commonwealth Constitution of Australia says only the senate can rule on the eligibility of a senator.

The senate has ordered an inquiry into the sacking of WA senator Rod Culleton while Brandis and Parry head for the hills.

Brandis is hightailing it to London as the new High Commissioner. He will no doubt be called to give evidence. He has a problem.

‘On 6 December 2017, the Senate resolved that the following matter be referred to the Joint Standing Committee on Electoral Matters for inquiry and report by 6 February 2018:

The implications of recent decisions by the Court of Disputed Returns concerning section 44 of the Constitution on questions referred by the Parliament under section 376 of the Commonwealth Electoral Act 1918, with particular reference to:

(a) the decisions in connection with the disqualification of former Senators Bob Day and Rodney Culleton;
(b) a regime for disclosing information relating to aspects other than section 44(i), for which the Parliament has already provided;
(c) the form such a process might take and how it could be implemented; and
(d) any related matters.’

Senator Bob Day(above) and Rod Culleton could be reinstated to the senate after a senate inquiry investigates the circumstances of their removal
