Victoria’s VEET scheme could cost you your home

Alan Manson has provided an update on the Victorian Marxist Government’s VEET scheme,

which could lose you your home

UPDATE 1: Land Grab in Victoria Being Legislated!

Politicians are now ducking for cover!  Since revealing in a recent Cairns News article what the proposed Local Government Act 20181 bill and the 10-year old Victorian Energy Efficiency Target (VEET) Scheme)2 potentially have in store for Victorians, a few interesting events have occurred.

* A response from the Minister for Local Government (Ms. Marlene Kairouz MP) was received that did nothing to address the issues raised with her.

* Similarly, a response from the Shadow Minister for Local Government (Mr. Robert Morris MP) was received that only gave an assurance that “…the Liberal and National parties will not support any legislation that extends the power of local councils beyond the limits of the current Local Government Act.”  He ignores the fact that the letter cast serious doubt about the lawfulness of the 1989 Local Government Act to which he refers, so his assurances are worth nothing.

Some interesting statistics have emerged in relation to this campaign:

* The previous article in Cairns News produced over 10,000 hits.  Although it is impossible to tell how many of these hits were from people located in Victoria, it does indicate there is some serious interest in this matter. 

* The Change.org petition recently produced 1,544 signatures.  This number will not worry anyone at Parliament House, Melbourne, as there are other petitions addressed to the Premier such as banning plastic bags (183,000) that he would prefer to spend more time addressing.

* The second phase of the campaign requested that Victorians email the Minister and the Shadow Minister for Local Government to require them to answer questions about the proposed legislation.  The appeal produced only 6 participants out of several thousand people emailed.  

Does this statistic indicate that Victorians are apathetic, or could it be because most people cannot find the time needed to read each document before making a decision?  But—what is the cost of Aussies retaining their freedoms—to maintain freedom of speech, freedom of choice, or even to own their land and use it as they see fit?  Is ‘Freedom’ worth a couple of hours of reading and then deciding to participate?  It appears NOT—because the statistics above indicate that “She’ll be right, mate” prevails more than undertaking due diligence.

In contrast to this attitude, one respondent said, “I looked at this in some detail and couldn’t find the horror. So I sent it on to an intelligent friend of mine to peruse which he did and he came to the same conclusion as I did, that it has been misunderstood by the original reader who is so worried. I wouldn’t worry about it”.  Hmmm.

Since then, additional information received from America confirms a number of the claims highlighted in the LGA 2018 and VEET documents are indeed “horrific”.  This video link (https://youtu.be/ayFCPtm__E8?t=449) reveals how Climate Action Plans (CPAs) have been implemented throughout local counties in the USA since 2015, and that it is intended they will be rolled out throughout the rest of the world—which includes Australia.  The UN schedule for this first phase to be finalised is 2020, and involves reducing the world’s carbon footprint to 25% less than 1990 greenhouse gas levels.

Some points worth noting in the video are these:

* Nationwide Climate Action Plans (CAPs) are being implemented in the USA by Local Councils.

* The Government trains and sends out Environmental Auditing inspectors who invite landowners to have an energy audit of their house or business where various measurements and recommendations are recorded.  Once these details are uploaded to a massive database, conveyancing of any sold properties cannot take place until any outstanding work identified in the audit has been completed.

* All houses will be required to have additional insulation installed in the roof and wall areas.

* All appliances and electrical equipment are to have the latest star energy rating.

* All appliances are to have an RFID chip installed so that the energy company can monitor their use using the building’s smart meter.  

* All gas appliances are being phased out.

* All gas central heating systems are banned.

* Transportation in each city is to be reduced by ONE DAY PER WEEK, where bicycles and other human powered means are used instead.

* Cars will be banned for idling for more than 5 minutes.  Each car will have a black box fitted to monitor these requirements.

* Farmers will be required to properly manage animal waste on their farms to reduce methane gas emissions.

* Local councils will offer people Green Loans that will enable the prescribed work to be carried out.  A 7% interest applies and will last 10-20 years.  The loans are collateralised to the value of the home or business premises.

* In the future, all house roofs are required to be painted white.

All Victorians are encouraged to view the 91-minute video and to decide for themselves whether there is a serious threat to their home, their business and their livelihoods in the future through the Local Government Act 2018 and the VEET Scheme that appears will implement Climate Action Plans throughout Victoria.  

Nevertheless, most people would agree that we (as a community) cannot continue to use energy and water in an unrestricted or wasteful manner.  Climate Action Plans that have been established through community consultation with our political leaders is a good thing and should be encouraged; but to have CAPs that are draconian in nature and place more value on producing LESS CO2 than on the welfare of people is unacceptable.  Our politicians need to know this from the people they purportedly represent.

Who then is willing to support this campaign or any other action that will allow the voice of We the People to be heard about this?  If you now choose to join this campaign, please click here3.

Ice age on the way but Greens will be immune

by Viv Forbes  Science Writer

Earth is a dangerous place. Of all the species that have ever lived, over 95% have already been extinguished by natural disasters.

Ice, not global warming, is the big killer and this recurring calamity often strikes quickly. Thousands of mammoths and other animals were killed by ice storms and their snap-frozen bodies are still entombed in ice around the Arctic. Just 15,000 years ago great ice sheets smothered the northern hemisphere as far south as Chicago, Moscow and London and all life had migrated towards the equator. This deadly ice had gripped Earth for about 50,000 years.

Ice ages are also times of dry winds and drought as cold oceans and cold dry atmospheres produce little evaporation or precipitation. Great deserts like the Sahara and the Gobi expand, and wind-blown dust fills the skies and rivers.

Adding to Ice Age woes, cold oceans suck the gas of life (carbon dioxide) out of the atmosphere, thus making surviving plants less able to cope with cold and drought. One of the great serendipities of modern life is that man’s use of carbon-rich fuels like oil and coal not only provides energy but also adds carbon dioxide plant food to the severely depleted carbon stocks of the atmosphere. Satellites have detected the resultant greening of the Earth.

The ice age is coming. Which wild animals and humans will survive? The Greens are oblivious being too preoccupied burying CO2 and shutting down industries. Thank God the Greens and Gaia are on the way out.

Earth also suffers cycles of volcanism where much life is extinguished by ash, lava, earthquakes and tsunamis, usually followed by more cold and starvation as dust blocks sunlight. Just one era of volcanism covered the Deccan in India with many lava flows in places more than 2 km thick and spewed hot lava into the oceans along the mid-ocean trenches. Earthquakes and resulting tsunamis swept all life from large areas of land and dumped and buried their fragmented remains in heaps of mud.

We also have evidence of massive destruction on Earth from collisions and near misses by comets and other bodies in the solar system.

Humans are not immune to the threat of extinction, but it will not come from today’s warm, moist, atmosphere or from the gas of life, carbon dioxide. It will probably come from the next glacial cycle in the Pleistocene Ice age, where long bitter glacial eras are separated by short warm periods such as the Holocene warm era in which we live.

In every short warm era like today’s Holocene, the warming oceans expel enough carbon dioxide into the atmosphere to terrify today’s global warming alarmists. And these times have always supported abundant plant and animal life. But never has “global warming” from this “greenhouse gas” prevented the cyclic return of the ice.

When blizzards blow and glaciers grow, the great ice sheets will spread again and mankind will be decimated by cold, drought, crop failures and starvation. A lucky few living in equatorial regions or clustered in shelters and hot houses around nuclear power stations will survive. Those still able to extract coal, oil or gas may manage to generate enough warmth and carbon dioxide plant food to offset the cold sun, the perma-frost and the barren atmosphere. And a few with appropriate skills and tools may become hunters and gatherers again (but the Neanderthals did not make it last time).

We should celebrate, not fear, the Modern Warm Era and give thanks for the many benefits gained from recycling those marvellous batteries of stored and buried carbon resources to our still-hungry biosphere.

When the ice returns, derelict and snow-bound wind turbines and solar panels will remain as stark evidence of the failed Green religion of yet another endangered species.

Liberal government heading down the Chinese social score slippery slope using facial recognition to identify dissenters

by Alex Bruce

Australia on track with Canada to catalogue its citizens

No sooner has Xi Jinping donned the mantle of “Paramount” Leader-for-life and ramped-up Internet censorship than the “social credit” system outlined in 2014 has been unleashed upon the Chinese public, with people now being barred from air travel or riding on trains if their social credit score is found to be lacking, under the “Once untrustworthy, always restricted” policy.

A few months ago, I researched a story about China’s new Sesame Credit-powered social rating system, with China’s answer to Jeff Bezos, Jack Ma, founder of Alibaba Group Ltd. as one of its architects. The new Chinese social credit system merges individual credit and legal records and social media accounts, claiming to foster “sincerity culture” and “traditional virtues” to improve the honesty a creditworthiness of society as a whole.

Australia is the western world’s guinea pig for a massive citizen surveillance system soon to match that of China where innocent people are jailed for having biometrically assessed ‘bad thoughts’.  Your assessment can lower your social credit score making you unable to participate in the trappings of life and relegated to a second rate citizen status

If your “citizen ranking” sinks too low, you cannot travel, buy property, send your child to a good school or even eat at a nice restaurant. Every aspect of life factors in. Online shopping habits are traced, with certain purchases dragging down your score, such as video games. The government looks at your bills, your school records, whether you jaywalk and even whether you visit your parents enough. Your social media accounts are checked for any form of dissent. Your score can tank, cutting you off from your life if your enter the wrong numbers while paying a court fee, as Chinese journalist, Liu Hu found out, according to 9News in Australia.

The final version of this scoring system is set to be implemented in 2020. It will relay real-time data reports to government officials, law enforcement and maybe to certain private citizens. Law enforcement is currently testing eye glasses with advanced facial recognition software that pull data from national databases, to instantly recognize criminals or political dissidents and which could conceivably be plugged into this social credit system.

This is not an Orwellian freak show reserved for an increasingly repressive Communist state. A Sesame Credit-type Carrot Rewards app has already been rolled out in Canada, in what James Corbett calls a “merger of behavioural science, gaming and government.”

Cairns region Labor MP’s have no intention of stamping out runaway crime

Cairns is the car stealing capital – 767 stolen in 2017 and 38 cars stolen in March 2018

Nearly 100 Cairns region residents fed up with spiralling juvenile crime, unanimously passed a resolution at a meeting in Woree on Saturday instructing the State Government to immediately implement the renowned Petford Farm Rehabilitation Program.

Founder of the program, Geoff Guest OAM, 91, explained to the audience how over 35 years he had successfully transformed more than 3000 troubled youths and adults into a stable lifestyle by offering a holistic solution to substance and alcohol abuse.

He said the transition to normality could not be achieved without incorporating the families of offenders, teaching them proper nutrition and that diet was as important as a loving family environment to break the cycle of anti-social behaviour and re-offending.

“At Petford over the years we taught the kids self-respect and how to respect others and by teaching them horsemanship, fencing, cattle work and tidying up after themselves then cooking at night,” Mr Guest said.

“My late wife Norma made sure there was always a good meal after a day’s work and there was no need to rely on sugar hits from soft drinks or alcohol to keep going.”

Attila Feher-Holan of Cairns Knights asks why the four Labor MP’s who represent Cairns and the Tablelands, did not attend a community meeting to actually address runaway juvenile crime in the Cairns region

Supporting Mr Guest were Member for Kennedy Bob Katter, Member for Leichardt Warren Entsch and State Member for Hill Shane Knuth.

The former Member for Mulgrave Naomi Wilson was present and also backed Mr Guest’s strategy.

Attila Feher-Holan, the founder of the neighbourhood watch group Cairns Knights, chaired the meeting and was scathing of the four local Labor Party state politicians who did not show up.

“The disrespect shown to constituents by the Labor members has not gone unnoticed and I ask if they have any intention at all of stopping the terrible crime wave local people are experiencing,” Mr Feher-Holan said.

“I personally asked Cynthia Lui, Michael Healy, Craig Crawford and Curtis Pitt if they would attend a meeting to help fix this awful problem but only Michael Healy accepted then pulled out after the government discovered he was coming.”

Long-time Petford supporter Professor Ernest Hunter, formerly Cairns and Hinterland Hospital and Health Service and Adjunct Professor at James Cook University, explained how the Petford Program had been so successful.

“One can’t work without the other and Geoff Guest incorporated a strict health and diet regime with a remote location and did not rely on any pharmaceutical drugs or more conventional methods of rehabilitation,” Professor Hunter said.

Member for Kennedy Bob Katter told the meeting how he had sought advice from different Aboriginal groups when formulating his Relocation Sentencing policy which allows Magistrates to sentence young offenders to a remote rehabilitation facility instead of going to jail.

“What happens is amateur criminals go to detention or jail and come out as professionals,” Mr Katter said.

“Jail for young offenders is not the answer.”

Mr Guest said he had been asked by Innisfail and Townsville residents to stage further meetings because of the high crime rates in their communities.-contributed

Australia has outdone Communist China with citizen surveillance

The Parliamentary Joint Committee on Intelligence and Security (PJCIS) has commenced a review of the Identity-matching Services Bill 2018 and the Australian Passports Amendment (Identity-matching Services) Bill 2018.The Identity-matching Services Bill 2018 will facilitate the exchange of identity-information between the Commonwealth and State and Territory Governments as agreed by COAG under the Intergovernmental Agreement on Identity Matching Services of October 2017. The Bill will authorise the Department of Home Affairs to collect, use and disclose identification information in order to operate the systems that will support a set of new biometric face-matching services

Former army officer now Liberal member for Canning in WA, Andrew Hastie, is tying up the loose ends in what is probably the most comprehensive citizen surveillance system on Earth. This cross-matching of roadside infared car passenger photos, eye retina and facial recognition records from your drivers licence and passport will be stored in a massive Canberra data base. It seems reciprocal arrangements with overseas law enforcement agencies will allow your personal details to be accessed from almost anywhere in the world. What a prize for the extra-Orwellian police state now called the New World Order?

The Australian Passports Amendment (Identity-matching Services) Bill 2018 will amend the Australian Passports Act 2005 to make Australian travel document data available for the purposes of identity-matching services.The PJCIS Chair, Mr Andrew Hastie MP, said that “It is vital that a nationally-consistent approach to data-sharing is put in place so that law enforcement and national security agencies can use facial images to identify individuals in circumstances where they or others may be under threat”.The Committee intends to report by mid-May 2018.

Enquiries:
Chair, Mr Andrew Hastie MP (Canning, WA) on 08 9534 8044 (Electorate office) or (02) 6277 4223 (Parliament House)

Further information about the inquiry can be accessed via the Committee’s website

The Committee invites written submissions to the inquiry to be received no later than 21 March 2018. Information on how to make a submission is available on the Committee’s website.

Both Bills will support the Commonwealth to meet its obligations under the intergovernmental agreement to deliver fast, secure identity-matching services and improve Australia’s national security, law enforcement, community safety and road safety capabilities.

Editor: It should be noted the Coalition of Australian Governments(state corporations) is not recognised by the Commonwealth Constitution of Australia. COAG’s validity is in doubt. So are its policy agreements between state Premiers whose lawful position is CEO of each corporate state.

This huge social experiment fits in with all other earlier technological surveillance leaps taken by Australian corporate government. This time around the United States will follow our lead to enable the financial oligarchy to complete the enslavement of the people, better known as the sheeple.

This massive information exchange has nothing to do with national security. It is all about people control and eugenics.

What happens next?

 

First they came for the Jews and I did not speak out because I was not a Jew.

Then they came for the Communists and I did not speak out because I was not a Communist.

Then they came for the trade unionists and I did not speak out because I was not a trade unionist.

Then they came for the gun owners and I did not speak because I handed mine in

Then they came for me and there was no one left to speak out for me.

Lancet outs fluoride as a dangerous neurotoxin

A report from the world’s oldest and most prestigious medical journal, The Lancet, has officially classified fluoride as a neurotoxin, in the same category as arsenic, lead, and mercury. [1] 

The news was broken by author Stefan Smyle and disseminated by the Facebook page Occupy Food, which linked to the report published in The Lancet Neurology, Volume 13, Issue 3, in the March 2014 edition, by authors Dr. Phillippe Grandjean and Philip J. Landrigan, MD. The report can be viewed by clicking here.

Industrial chemicals identified

As noted in the summary of the report, a systematic review identified five different similar industrial chemicals as developmental neurotoxicants: lead, methylmercury, polychlorinated biphenyls, arsenic, and toluene.

The summary goes on to state that six additional developmental neurotoxicants have also now been identified: manganese, fluoride, chlorpyrifos, dichlorodiphenyltrichloroethane, tetrachloroethylene, and the polybrominated diphenyl ethers.

The authors added that even more of these neurotoxicants remain undiscovered.

Fluoride has been named by the prestigious medical journal ‘Lancet’ as being a neurotoxin, but the Qld Labor Party knows better, insisting it be added to drinking water

ADHD, Dyslexia, and other cognitive impairments

In the Lancet report, the authors propose a global prevention strategy, saying that “untested chemicals should not be presumed to be safe to brain development, and chemicals in existing use and all new chemicals must, therefore, be tested for developmental neurotoxicity.”

Also in the report, they note that neurodevelopmental disabilities, including attention-deficit hyperactivity disorder, dyslexia, and other cognitive impairments, are now affecting millions of children worldwide in what they call a “pandemic of developmental neurotoxicity.”

The report coincides with 2013 findings by a Harvard University meta-analysis funded by the National Institutes of Health, which concluded that children in areas with highly fluoridated water have “significantly lower” IQ scores than those who live in areas with low amounts of fluoride in their water supplies. [2]

Fluoride also linked to cancers

Sodium fluoride in drinking water has also been linked to various cancers.

It is functionally different than the naturally-occurring calcium fluoride, and commonly added to drinking water supplies and used by dentists and in dental products who posit that it is useful for dental health.

Currently, fluoride is added to water supplies across much of North America, however, adding fluoride to drinking water is not always standard practice, being banned entirely throughout most of Continental Europe and in several other developed nations across the world.

Gun lobby propels Tasmania Liberals back into power

The Tasmanian Liberal Party has won another four-year term, holding government after Saturday’s election.

The best news emanating post-election is the stunning loss of two Greens seats, leaving a lone member. Greens leader of herself, Cassy O’Connor is a racist zealot and after hearing her losing speech on Saturday night, one could be forgiven for thinking she is a few sheep short in the pen.

O’Connor, resplendent with arm tattoos looking like a spokesman for the local chapter of Hells Angels, moaned-on how she wanted to give all of Tasmania to the blackfellas. Poor blackfella me was the gist of her tirade, after which she attracted three clappers from the mildly attentive Greens throng assembled at the electoral commission headquarters.

Sole surviving Tasmania Greens member Cassy O’Connor wanted to give Tasmania to the blackfellas. She can’t understand why the Greens vote dropped to less than 10 per cent 

Miss O’Connor probably doesn’t know that Trugannini was the last, real indigenous woman to live in Tasmania. She died in 1876. There have been a few imposters and interlopers since but history has it; there were no Tasmanian blackfellas alive after 1876.

Like all of Miss O’Connor’s diatribe, this part remains a mystery as to which blackfellas she wanted to give Tasmania.

Predictably, after losing 28 straight opinion polls embattled Prime Minister Malcolm Turnbull has claimed some of the credit.

He has to gain some accolades from somewhere, self-aggrandisement or not.

Not all election analysists have lost sight of the bolstering effect of the shooter’s vote which gave the Liberals victory.

Two days before the election a smart operator dropped a grenade; the Libs would overhaul the ineffective and costly gun laws adopted by the apple isle after Martin Bryant was framed for the Port Arthur massacre in 1996.

The mainland Liberals and Labor had better take a lesson from this most astute Premier and the gun lobby. Will Hodgman is a presentable, seemingly honest and smart politician the likes of which are sadly lacking in every other state.

We won’t go near federal parliament.

The rest is history.

Gun amnesty a fizzer

National Firearms Amnesty a waste of resources

The results of the amnesty were nothing out of the box with not many semi-auto and automatic firearms handed in.

Of the overall 57,324 recorded, one third were destroyed and the balance was registered in various states and returned to the owners.

As we have stated many times in the past it is a fallacy to claim registered guns help solve crime. They don’t and there are no authentic studies or figures to say this helps to track gun crime.

There are probably over 1.5 million .22 calibre rifles registered across the nation and another 200,000 that are not registered. How does this make the unregistered guns illegal?

This handed-in rocket launcher is no more dangerous than the thousands of light artillery pieces and inert rifles or tanks found at any Australian RSL club.

Thousands of unregistered motor vehicles sit in yards and paddocks across Australia. Does that make them illegal?

People have been conditioned into thinking because a firearm sits in a cupboard for years waiting for a need on a rainy day then these guns are illegal?

Wakey wakey they are no more illegal than the cars even if we had legitimate government.

Nearly 2900 handguns were handed in plus a nice little rocket launcher, recovered from a dump, no doubt having its origins with army ordinance. It found its way to the crusher.

Only 2500  semi-automatic firearms were handed in.

New South Wales received the highest number of firearms at 24,831, followed by Queensland on 16,375. Victorians handed in 9,175 guns.

Federal Minister for Law Enforcement Angus Taylor said the weapons were no longer on the “grey market”, which refers to guns that are not registered and not in the hands of criminals.

This Minister has no idea what he is talking about. He thinks criminals might get their hands on these guns. There would be none to hand in if this were the case.

You only made more criminals out of law abiding citizens who foolishly handed them in Mr Taylor.

What enterprising bank robber would use this 170 year old Tower Enfield flintlock pistol?

When these gun owners became ‘licenced’ all of their personal details were entered into the federal Crim Trac records along with tens of thousands of real criminals who, incidentally, have not handed in their guns.

So-called government is criminally stupid.

Senator David Leyonhjelm, an avid shooter and gun advocate, does not think it has achieved much at all.

“We know it makes no difference to anything that really matters,” Senator Leyonhjelm said.

 

“The Government says its taking guns off the street. The guns that it gets in an amnesty were never on the street. They’re grandpa’s old guns. They were in the back of a cupboard or wardrobe in a ceiling somewhere. They were never going to be used in a crime.”

These ancient guns were handed in. It is impossible to source ammo for any of these antique guns.

  • Norinco SKK semi-automatic rifle (the remaining 900,000 are buried)
  • A WWII Russian PPSH submachine gun
  • Martini Henry rifle circa 1873
  • Spandau MG08 heavy machine gun(should be given to a RSL club)
  • Beaumont Adams Revolver circa 1856
  • A homemade machine gun
