America running out of food, we are next

(Natural News) Today’s Situation Update podcast is one of the most important of this year. It explains how the domestic food supply is being militarized and controlled by a corrupt, criminal regime in Washington D.C. that now threatens food security for all Americans.

Infant formula acute shortage in the US causing panic among population

To address the infant formula shortage that’s causing widespread frustration and even panic across America, the illegitimate Biden regime has invoked Korean War-era emergency powers found in the Defense Production Act, which is administered by FEMA. That act, originally intended to allow emergency executive action to shore up critical infrastructure during times of war, is now being used by the Biden regime to seize control over food supply raw materials and force companies to deliver them to Abbott Laboratories to manufacture large quantities of heavily processed, junk food “infant formula” made with corn syrup solids and processed milk proteins.

Because this effort simply redirects existing food materials, this does not actually solve any food shortages in America, it merely shifts the shortages from one product category to another.

It also stands as a centrally-planned food distribution plan that resembles communism, not free market dynamics.

Furthermore, it means that as other food shortages emerge in the months ahead, the Biden regime will almost certainly invoke the DPA to seize control of other food materials, making sure favored corporations get supply while dissident companies and small businesses are driven into bankruptcy due to lack of supply.

Welcome to Joe Biden’s America, where nothing is safe from the catastrophically bad ideas of the Biden regime and its desire to destroy everything in sight, including food abundance and affordable fuel.

DHS has already secretly seized the output of food storage manufacturers across America

As my company (HealthRangerStore.com) is in the food production and storable foods industry, we are acutely aware of what’s happening across that industry. We have confirmed that the Dept. of Homeland Security (DHS) has already seized the entire production output of several large US storable food manufacturers. Those companies were also forced to sign non-disclosure agreements in order to keep this fact a secret from the public. But careful observers will note that any food production company claiming to be unable to fulfill customer orders for many months at a time is actually under the control of DHS, forced to shift all output to the US government.

DHS is currently funneling tens of millions of dollars a month of storable food products into underground government bunkers and tunnels while telling the public there’s no need to prepare at all. Food recalls are also being staged by the FDA in order to confiscate massive quantities of foods which are redirected to government bunkers.

DHS, I’m told, is preparing for a war with China which is believed will commence before the mid-term elections this year. I will have huge details on this in tomorrow’s podcast, which exposes China’s plan to invade the continental United States with millions of PLA troops in order to seize America’s farmland, oil and mineral resources. The plan involves exterminating every last American, including all the Democrats who have committed treason by working with the communist Chinese to achieve this plan. (Such as Calif. Gov. Newsom.)

China’s invasion plan, by the way, will begin with a D-Day-style landing on the beaches of California. Every Californian civilian who is unable to flee will be executed on sight. And since California is a gun control state, the American people have been deliberately disarmed in order to make China’s invasion far easier to accomplish. (More about that tomorrow…)

Dept. of Defense aircraft are now AIRLIFTING baby food into America, using military resources to solve domestic food supply problems that should be solved by the free market instead

The insanity of the Biden regime knows no bounds. Instead of allowing the free market to solve the infant formula problem by ending the FDA’s protection racket for Abbott Laboratories and other domestic manufacturers, Biden has resorted to using Dept. of Defense aircraft to airlift infant formula into the United States.

As CNBC.com reported yesterday:

Biden has also directed the Health and Human Services Department and Department of Agriculture to use aircraft from the Defense Department to pick up infant formula from overseas that meets U.S. health and safety standards.

So while DoD resources would be far better utilized to prepare for the coming World War III (with either China or Russia), Biden has DoD transport planes airlifting baby food in order to try to stem the tide of frustration among US voters.

This reflects the militarization of the domestic food supply, meaning that not only is Biden invoking emergency war powers to seize and control domestic food supply materials; he’s also using the military to choose where to distribute the available food resources.

There couldn’t possibly be anything wrong with militarizing the US food supply under war-time emergency powers, could there?

Minister Littleproud about to infect national cattle herd with lumpy skin disease

Letter to the Editor

The week of 8.4.2022 I came across an articles regarding a researcher and Government officials in Australia wanting to bring highly contagious lumpy skin disease samples into Australia so it can be studied.

Why would Agriculture Minister David Littleproud allow lumpy skin disease to enter Australia? It is found in India and Indonesia and we do not want it here.

It seems we do not have the disease in Australia. After a bit of a search it also seems there is an alarming rate of spreading of this disease around the world at the moment, so why would you risk the importation of this bug into our country, given what has happened over the last couple of years. 11.4.2022 and David Littleproud has given permission.

In my opinion this researcher should pack their suit case jump on a plane and go and research  the disease where it exists. We have in the past have had a top biosecurity act in place here in Australia,

Unfortunately it no longer has my confidence as it has been thrown out the window. If private business is involved its just about the money, I am sure I am not the only concerned Australian in regard to these types of infectious diseases. Let’s hope the bureaucrats were qualified to make the right decision or perhaps it has been imported already. If this disease suddenly appears we know where to start looking for answers. I am not happy how Australia has and is being run for years, An absolute Disgrace if you ask me.

Kind Regards,

Andrew Copeland

Queensland

Editor: Minister Littleproud’s knowledge of agriculture would fit onto a postage stamp. His father was a country school teacher and David would have seen cows in a paddock somewhere which qualified him to be Minister. But have no doubt the ALP would do the same. Have these mindless bureaucrats and LNP dupes learnt nothing from the Covid scam?

UN Agenda 30 agreed to by the LNP/ALP will depopulate the bush

Letter to the Editor

If you read agenda 2030 you will see they intend to concentrate us in boxes in their “smart cities” with their Universal Wage. This is why there is a war on the bush – floods – fire – legislation conspiring to push people off the land. Eventually we won’t be allowed access to the bush. It’s all been planned for a long time..

Reference this US environmental mapping with the map of Cape York Peninsula we published recently and the similarity is striking.

Nearly 70 per cent of Cape York covered by nature reserves or national parks; little left for Aboriginal economic benefit

First published in April 2016

Aboriginal people of Cape York Peninsula are being duped and dudded by the State Government over large land ‘hand overs’ that the local communities believe will prevent them from earning income.

On April 7, another 54,000 hectares north of Cooktown was handed over to several tribal groups from Hopevale, adding even more locked-up land to the vast national park estate on Cape York.

Since the CYPLUS (Cape York Peninsula Land Use Study) research of the 80’s and early 90’s once productive grazing land has steadily been resumed by State Governments, mainly the ALP, to be gazetted as national park or some type of nature reserve.

Nature reserves, national parks, regional parks, timber reserves, environmental reserves and DOGIT land shaded areas cover at least 70 per cent of the Peninsula leaving small areas for grazing or commercial purposes that are not of any economic benefit to Aboriginal groups

Various Aboriginal corporations gratefully sign up to vast areas of former cattle stations, such as the Olkola people when last year they were handed five, once viable large cattle properties in central Cape York Peninsula totalling 1.5 million acres that used to run 30,000 cattle.

The Prescribed Body Corporation gleefully accepted the gift from the State Government, but seemingly did not properly read the paperwork. The PBC just helped the National Parks and Wildlife Service add another one million acres to their vast estate, on which no cattle grazing is allowed.

The remaining portion of Aboriginal Freehold can be used for grazing or selective timber cutting, but under the ALP environmental laws would have to be excluded from the nature reserves and park area by fencing it off.

The fencing would cost several million dollars and require maintenance on a weekly basis to be effective.

Indigenous leader Noel Pearson angrily said, “…again Aborigines have been duped by the Labor/Green bureaucracy.”

Noel Pearson sick and tired of being ‘dudded’ by the Labor/Green bureaucracy

Pearson heaped vitriol on the Labor and former LNP governments at a large meeting of stakeholders in Mareeba recently for dudding the communities of Cape York over land use.

“We have no property rights on Cape York and we need upgraded tenure. There are lots of fronts where all landowners are vulnerable,” he said.

Public servants who once worked for environmental lobby groups were targeted by Pearson for pushing extreme green agendas within government.

“These greens have infiltrated indigenous groups and government departments and it’s like a tag team, they are all the same, and have networked with all departments,” Mr Pearson said.

“Public servants should declare their association with environmental groups.

“The proposition there is going to be land clearing the size of Victoria, is fantasy.

“There are only pockets of land suitable for development.

“White people too have had many generations on this land and they have a great love for their land. It’s high time the law in Queensland started to respect that relationship.

“We spent five hard years and lots of money fighting Wild Rivers in court but we could have been doing other more productive things.

“We need another 10 independents in parliament to put us in a better position, given the absence of an Upper House.”

Culling of cattle herd and cattle stations on Cape York Peninsula

Part of the depopulation plan by disrupting food supplies

Shoot to kill cattle operations in Cape York must stop now, Member for Hill Shane Knuth said.

Mr Knuth said for years parks and wildlife had been performing shoot-to-kill operations, indiscriminately killing unbranded and branded cattle, often without any, or little notice to surrounding landowners who own most of the cattle.

KAP member for Hill Shane Knuth warns Qld Labor not to strangle any more cattle stations and cattle numbers on Cape York

“The department needs to communicate with landowners, who are rarely notified and often held up by government bureaucracy, sometimes waiting up to 50 days before they can obtain a permit to collect their branded cattle from national parks,” Mr Knuth said.

“Cattle are continually shot before landowners are given permission to enter parks to muster their cattle, which is a huge economic loss to the region.”

He said over the past three years more than 5,000 cattle, which could be worth more than $6m on today’s market, have been shot on orders from the Department of Environment.

“The question is, why are neighbouring properties to Cape York National Parks given only one week’s notice, or no notice before the killing of cattle occurs?” he said.

“And when adequate notice is given, it’s always during the wet season when it is far too difficult and dangerous to muster cattle.

“It is quite obvious that this Government wants to drive pastoralists out of the region, so they can lock it up to meet their environmental agenda.”

“I call on the Minister to fix this long-standing issue, streamline the permit process, instruct the department to give adequate notice and work with landowners to muster valuable cattle, instead of destroying this income stream.”

Sally Witherspoon, who has been involved in the cattle industry on Cape York for more than 50 years, (and still runs cattle on a northern Peninsula sublease) says, that National Parks are putting the final nail in the coffin of the beef industry in North Queensland.  

“There is a ridiculous rule that you must contact Queensland Parks and Wildlife Service 40 days before submitting a Permit to Muster application,” Mrs Witherspoon said.  

“The application takes time to be assessed and could then be denied for some reason. For example, too late in the season for a muster.

“National Parks should not be purchased unless there are funds to fully fence and maintain the Park. 

“They are the worst neighbours one could wish for with little to no weed control, no fences, nobody living on the property, little firefighting capability, and a propensity to shoot cattle.

“Shooting from a helicopter is often not humane and it is distressing to think our cattle are being cruelly “hunted” and maybe left to die a slow death.

“It is very telling that graziers on Cape York Peninsula and the north-eastern coast of Queensland are being forced out of business in the only areas of Queensland that have guaranteed rainfall. 

“It is my belief that this is part of a state government drive to disrupt food production.  A plan that is also evidenced by the recent slashing of the Queensland Mackerel quota.”#

Editor: The State Labor Party has just set aside $20m to purchase more cattle properties on Cape York. Since its recent $11.5m acquisition of Bramwell Station and Resort, there are few cattle stations left.

The Labor Party is intent on removing all of 15 remaining white pastoralists then turning Cape York Peninsula into a vast, unmanageable slab of impenetrable scrub. This has already occurred over much of the sterilised land area handed to Aborigines without a secure title.

It will become a potential firebomb of nuclear proportion already home to more than one million feral pigs and tens of thousands of wild dogs.

Yet feeble-minded city people keep voting for the ALP eco-fascists not even thinking about where their next beef steak will come from.

Qld Health warns venom immunotherapy soon after Covid vaxx is dangerous

by Alison Ryan

Australia’s future food supply, agriculture, chemical and radiation safety, security and border agencies are in danger.

Can anyone elucidate on the following statement from Queensland Health, given Seb’s information about snake venom?

Celeste Solum (former FEMA worker) spoke about the UN management of life on earth. She said that the Terrestrial Animal Health Code is now mandatory. “They consider humans an animal”

Quote from Queensland Health: “It is important that regular hay fever (allergic rhinitis), eczema (atopic dermatitis) and asthma treatments are continued when having the COVID-19 vaccine. However, it is recommended that allergen immunotherapy (AIT) or venom immunotherapy (VIT) injections should not be given within 48 hours of the COVID-19 vaccine injection. This avoids confusion about the cause of side effects or allergic reactions, if they occur in response to the COVID-19 vaccine or immunotherapy”.

Copied from the Queensland Health, COVID-19 Comirnaty™ Vaccine (Pfizer®/BioNTech®) Protocol 16 updated 24 December 2021

“What is snake venom good for”?
Snake venom contains several neurotoxic, cardiotoxic, cytotoxic, nerve growth factor, lectins, disintrigrins, haemorrhagins and many other different enzymes. These proteins not only inflict death to animals and humans, but can also be used for the treatment of thrombosis, arthritis, cancer and many other diseases. An overview of various snake venom components that have prospects in health and diseases are discussed in this review. https://pubmed.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/12974396/

Celeste Solum (former FEMA worker) spoke about the UN management of life on earth. She said that the Terrestrial Animal Health Code is now mandatory. It’s renewed every May. It is considered a living document. So, there are no absolutes. They consider humans an animal and this is basically the UN management of life on earth. Celeste also spoke about the Terrestrial Manual, saying it is actually the manual of Diagnostic tests and vaccines for Terrestrial Animals. It started in May 2005. To them terrestrial Animal includes Humans. They do have a depopulation manual called Stamping Out. The Food and Agriculture Organization (FAO) is part of UN. It was beta tested in AUSTRALIA and adopted in USA. All the countries have a Stamping Out manual. They have had this for a long time. So, it tells how to dispose of different species. It doesn’t go into humans. At the time it’s like we don’t put that into print. But it gives you an idea that they did already have a Plan and they are using the same Plan like right now.
See: Is the Test tagging you? What’s in the vaccine? Former FEMA Celeste Solum talks with David Icke

Yes, surely the AUSTRALIAN connection Celeste spoke of is true. The FAO Animal Health Manual
No. 16, 2002, does have William Geering, Former Deputy Chief Veterinary Officer, Australia listed. He’s also named as “Consultant, EMPRES/lnfectious Diseases Group, FAO, Rome, Former Director, Animal and Plant Health, Bureau of Resource Sciences”.

The oft mentioned AUSTRALIAN ANIMAL HEALTH LABORATORY, a Commonwealth Scientific and Industrial Research Organisation (CSIRO) facility in Geelong, is now called the AUSTRALIAN CENTRE FOR DISEASE PREPAREDNESS. This Biosafety Level-4 lab is a Collaborating Centre on Emergency Preparedness for Transboundary Animal Diseases for Asia and Oceania for the FAO of the UN.

Current Chief Veterinary Officer of Australia is Dr Mark Schipp. He signed the Australian National Action Plan for Health Security, along with Professor Brendan Murphy – Chief Medical Officer, in 2018, after Australia’s Joint External Evaluation was done by the WHO.

The updated NAPHS/IHR Plan, 2019 to 2023, maps out the pursuing globalists’ dream. And it’s also how we know that Australia’s future food supply, agriculture, chemical and radiation safety, security and border agencies are in danger.

Celeste Solum writes;
Novel pathogens have been released into the wild (world). They contain combinations of viruses-MERS-SARS-HIV-CORONA and combinations of animals: bats-snakes-pengolins-birds-pigs. What I am talking about is the deployment of a Nano Hybrid BioRobotic weapon, half biological-half robotic, that is hollow with a payload and a mission. Think of the novel coronavirus (and other new pathogens) as nanoshells with infinite combinations of pathogens that can emerge from the payload program contained within the nanoshell.

The primary stated goal of this whole design is to corrupt the DNA of the host and kill the host, even if it takes multiple passes to kill the host. That is why the World Economic Forum (WEF) and International Committee on Taxonomy of Viruses (ICTV) said there would be high morbidity (sickness) then death.

Since World War II there has been a proclivity among researchers and scientists to inject humans with snake venom for various purposes, all benevolent, in their eyes.

The stupidity of the federal bureaucracy and the ALP/LNP duopoly knows no bounds

Imported supply of diesel additive to make modern truck and tractor engines operate has run out

By Henry Jom

December 12, 2021 

Federal Trade Minister Dan Tehan is confident Australia’s urea supply will be unaffected as the federal government seeks to secure the crucial diesel fuel emissions ingredient from other countries.

Australia’s bloated, leftist bureaucracy has again stuffed up nearly shutting down much of the country’s heavy transport fleet and farmers by forcing the closure of fertiliser factories because of carbon dioxide emissions then relying on an expensive and unnecessary, imported environmental emissions preventative added to truck fuel. Farmers across Australia need more than five million tonnes of urea plus other fertilisers to plant next year’s cereal, oilseed and fibre crops. It seems there will be none available. The madmen of the ALP/LNP have shut down fertiliser factories because of onerous carbon dioxide targets that have been set by international agreements. And Barnaby Joyce the Nationals leader wants voters to keep away from independent candidates? The depopulation agenda continues.

Tehan has also urged businesses not to hoard AdBlue—a brand of diesel exhaust fluid (DEF) containing urea used in modern trucks and diesel vehicles—in order to prevent disruptions to the nation’s freight and logistics sector.

“There are obviously issues around containers, shipping disruptions which we’re also working through,” Tehan told ABC Radio.

“But from everything that we’re seeing, there is a clear supply which we can bring to Australia and given we have seven weeks already in stock, we are very confident we will be able to get the urea that we need into the country.”

Last month, the federal government imported 27,000 litres of urea from South Korea used to make AdBlue.

Australia is also speaking with Indonesia and will approach Saudi Arabia, the United Arab Emirates, Qatar and Japan, to secure further urea supplies.

“I’ve spoken to my Indonesian counterpart and there is some supply in Indonesia that we should be able to access in the coming weeks,” Tehan told the Australian Broadcasting Corporation (ABC).

This follows the banning of urea exports from China as it prioritises domestic supply.

Analysts estimate about three-quarters of urea produced in China is made with coal, while the rest uses natural gas, reported.

While Australia has previously imported 80 percent of its urea from China, countries like Indonesia and South Korea appear to be good alternatives for Australia, David Leaney, an International Supply Chain Management lecturer at Australian National University said.

“We’ve got good trade relationships with South Korea as well.”

Leaney added that the geographical closeness of Indonesia is more appealing for Australia as urea is a cheap commodity for its volume.

“What you don’t want is transporting cheap stuff using expensive transport a long way because then transport becomes a too higher percentage of the total price you’re paying,” he said.

Meanwhile, the Victorian Farmers Federation (VFF) said the shortage was a “wake-up call” for an over-reliance on concentrated international supply chains.

“We need to increase our domestic manufacturing capacity to increase Australia’s resilience to international supply chain shocks,” VFF infrastructure and transport committee chair Ryan Milgate said in a media release.

Milgate added that the agricultural supply was already under strain with truck driver shortages and global supply chain disruptions.

“As farmers produce essential perishable goods, the supply of critical inputs like AdBlue is essential to maintaining our food security.

“It’s critical the AdBlue supply chain including manufacturers, the fertiliser industry, transport operators and government work together to address the shortages,” Milgate said.

National Road Transport Association’s chief executive Warren Clark previously called on the federal government to form a task force of industry groups to look at options to mitigate the situation in the immediate term.

“If we learned one thing from COVID-19 it’s that a lack of coordination only compounds problems,” Warren said.

“Our industry isn’t the only one that will be affected, but we will be hit first and hardest.”

From a reader:

https://www.bakeryoung.com.au/a-boost-for-agriculture-from-sa/ Leigh Creek Energy is developing its flagship Leigh Creek Urea Project (LCUP), located 550km north of Adelaide in South Australia.

The $2.6 billion LCUP will be the lowest-cost sovereign producer of urea, producing nitrogen-based fertiliser for local and export agriculture markets. It will provide additional security for a critical product for the Australian agricultural sector and avoid supply-side risks associated with international transport, exchange rates, commodity prices, and import logistics that Australian farmers contend with.

Coles and Woolworths will get a hike in income from FWC ruling much to the detriment of farmers

CHANGES to a farm worker Industrial Relations Award means that fruit pickers will now receive a guaranteed minimum wage but Federal Member for Kennedy, Bob Katter, says the farmers will bear the brunt of an increase in costs in the supermarket as a result.

Bob Katter warns farmers will be unable to pass on fixed minimum wages costs awarded by the Fair Work Commission

“The decision by the Fair Work Commission to provide a minimum wage for farm workers is a good decision because it will encourage people to become farm workers and not have to get everyone from overseas.

“Having said that, cost structures have to be born by the farmers – they can’t pass it on.

“We have only two or three people that sell fruit and vegetables in Australia and combined they have over 75 percent of the market. They pay the farmers whatever they feel like paying the farmers.”

Mr Katter said that farm incomes from the supermarkets giants had barely changed in the last 30 years ago but the price of food to the consumer has skyrocketed more than 250 percent.

“The real problem here is that the farmers had their collective bargaining rights taken off them. For the workers, this is a good thing that they have got their bargaining rights, but the farmers don’t have their bargaining rights because the National Party deregulated most of their industries.

“So yes, the workers can and should be given a better go but the people who are going to be punished here are the farmers and the benefit to the consumer, is nil.

“There is a as much chance of the supermarket giants passing on that charge and giving it to the farmers as I have got of becoming a beetle rider from Booroola.

“So, Mr Government, give back to the farmers their right to collectively bargain. The workers have that right and they should have it and the farmers should have it.

“You took it off them and they’ve been screwed through the floor. There were 270,000 of them, now there is a 160,000 of them. What a cruelty. What a cruelty.  And the Australian people are paying the price.

“All those changes, clearly, we know who profited by them. It wasn’t the worker. It wasn’t the consumer, and it most certainly wasn’t the farmer.”

Nanoparticles to contaminate entire food supply under guise of food safety – latest attack on agriculture

by US correspondent Alexandra Bruce

Scientists have been designing ways to put their so-called vaccines in the food supply and it seems they may have created an avenue to begin this, brought to you my the American Chemical Society and four scientists from Communist China.

Functional Hybrid Micro/Nanoentities are being implemented to promote food safety. To detect hazardous substances in agricultural food products – they’re putting in experimental hazardous substances.

Australian Deputy Prime Minister wants to censor social media – now we know why

-contributed

It is hard to pick which one is Barnie Joyce, Deputy PM but our guess is on the left and the other is Sir Les Patterson (Barry Humphries). Barnaby’s latest kudos is collapsing under threat of losing Ministerial leather for himself and his hopeless National Party cronies by acquiescing to compromised PM Scott Morrison over the Glasgow environmental jaunt to eradicate farmers over the next 20 years. No more prime rib steaks then Barnie! Just Scomo’s mate Bill Gates’ soybean mush.

Halls of shame – Australian Universities ban free speech

James Cook University in Cairns leads the pack. Their precious academics don’t like peer reviews of their sometimes dodgy work. Never let the facts get in the way when appeasing governments for more and bigger grants.

A dark cloud hangs over the future of academic freedom of speech in Australia following the High Court’s ruling today against Great Barrier Reef expert Dr Peter Ridd, Katter’s Australian Party MPs have said.

The KAP which – alongside a variety of other supporters from across the country – have stood in solidarity with Dr Ridd as he took his former employer James Cook University (JCU) to court after being sacked in 2018, said the professor deserved to be applauded for his tenacity.

MHR Bob Katter; Dr Peter Ridd; Nick Dametto MLA and leader of KAP, Robbie Katter MLA address a recent cane industry forum in Ayr.
Dr Ridd said today he “may have lost a battle but he will win the war.”

Hinchinbrook MP Nick Dametto said today’s decision by the High Court meant, by law, Dr Ridd was in breach of his of JCU work contract when he publicly raised quality assurance and trust concerns around fellow researchers’ works.

The ruling had nothing to do with Dr Ridd’s expertise on the GBR or the validity of his scientific views, he said.

Mr Dametto currently has a Bill before the Queensland Parliament seeking a full repeal of the Palaszczuk Labor Government’s Environmental Protection (Great Barrier Reef Protection Measures) and Other Legislation Amendment Act 2019.

This Bill, labelled as “farm-destroying” due to the onerous requirements it places on North and Central Queensland cane growers, was predicated on water quality research similar to that which was questioned by Dr Ridd.

Dr Ridd has long called for the establishment of an Office of Science Quality Assurance to question and monitor the validity of scientific research used to underpin government policy.

“We believe that, in the court of public opinion, Dr Ridd has been successful,” Mr Dametto said.

“As a scientist, academic and individual we believe he deserves to be applauded for putting everything on the line to fight for what he, and many others, believe in, which is the fundamental importance of freedom of speech and academic integrity.

“In the name of standing up for what he thought was morally right and just, Dr Ridd has sacrificed his job and potentially his career and reputation, but he has done this because he believed it was right to at least question the science. 

“Few people understand the effects of sediment and nutrient run-off to the GBR better than Dr Ridd, and systemic quality assurance problems are still plaguing the way GBR ‘science’ is being used to affect modelling that drives government policy and public opinion. 

“The gravest concern attached to today’s ruling is that it has the real potential to scare off anyone else who wants to raise their head out of the trenches to question not only the reef science institutions but also science across the board.”

Mr Dametto said that, without academic freedom, there was a potential to stifle the progression of science and send us back to a time of limited academic thinking not seen since the Dark Ages. 

Kennedy MP Bob Katter said that the cases of Ridd and Pavlou made it quite obvious that there was no freedom of speech on Australia’s university campuses.

“Peter Ridd was expressing opinions, and that has been the entire essence of universities since the days of Plato and Socrates,” he said.

“There must a free expression of ideals for universities to operate properly. When I was at university I disagreed with radicals who opposed Vietnam but I defended tenaciously their right to free expression of their point of view.

“The CEO class now run the universities, the corporations and half the trade unions. They are stifling freedoms in this country.”

RSPCA and Labor Left coming after farmers and pig dog hunters

by Jim O’Toole, Townsville bureau

The RSPCA, in cahoots with the Labor Party is doubling up its rural culture busting efforts by calling for a tightening of animal cruelty policies.

They are coming after steel traps, pig dogs, 1080 poison and the alleged mistreatment of farm animals. The fact that there are more than one million feral pigs between the Tablelands and the Tip of Cape York eating their way through thousands of eggs laid by cassowaries, scrub turkeys, turtles and crocodiles, is not as important as a dog chewing on a pig’s ear.

Pig hunting is a necessary and socially acceptable method of controlling the exploding feral pig population across northern Australia

Maybe some of the more colourful pig hunters could be more careful should their dogs latch onto the handful of worrisome RSPCA dopes if they trespass on private property so these city-centric idiots understand just how pig hunting works.

This official rural terrorism falls into line with the present Labor disarmament of gun owners and harassment of gun shop proprietors.  Last week Covid cops visited gun shops ensuring counter staff were wearing useless and dangerous masks, another facet of the war on freedom of choice.

Note the word policies (above) because Labor Premier Peter Beattie in 2001 removed the Crown from all Queensland legal procedures and the Parliament, without referendum, following the Goss and Blight campaign to destroy freehold land titles and land ownership when all parchment deeds were shredded in the 90’s.

The Emperor has no clothes and according to two Constitutional law analysts’, ‘legislation’ churned out by the State Parliament is only applicable to members of political parties and the Public Service who sign employment contracts with the party controlling the Parliament.

Members of the public lawfully, are bound only by Common Law.

The RSPCA’s Royal patronage was called into question several years ago when LNP Senator Bridgette McKenzie wrote to the Queen asking her to remove her patronage from the gamin animal protection society after the group tried to kill off family farming in NSW and Victoria.

RSPCA and Animals Australia lawyer and ambulance chaser Tracey Jackson is after farmers and pig hunters who perform a necessary and welcome public contribution by catching some of the million or more feral pigs

RSPCA solicitor and spokeswoman Tracey Jackson of Animals Australia, announced today the offensive against farmers and pig hunters would be taken up a few more notches in the policy review.

Jackson told ABC Radio her left lily-pad mob would be coming after livestock producers  claiming they were not in step with the “public perception” of alleged, cruel animal husbandry practices.

Such drivel about the ‘public perception’ when the vast majority of the public, other than a few scruffy, Gaia Greens and ambulance chasers like Jackson, couldn’t care less how livestock are being farmed just as long as the butcher has a stock of nice T bones.  

The alleged ‘public perception’ emanates from a few Animals Australia agitators and the Labor Left which has been trying to close down the bush for decades.

RSPCA survives by public subscription and we suggest pig hunters and farmers step up their Facebook exposure of this motley mob of con artists.

Farmers cannot expect much help from their respective primary producer bodies as they have been purchased by the Labor Party.

Some time ago the Victorian RSPCA was caught out lying about farm animal numbers and how these animals were being mistreated by farmers.

This article was published in Cairns New six years ago:

RSPCA CEO Heather Neil

RSPCA CEO Heather Neil said the group “will not turn our backs on any group of animals including those used in farming where there are more than 850 million animals that need a voice.”

A Mallee farmer, Mr Dick Worthington said Mrs Neil and PETA were “suffering from a terrible delusion, that animals are more important than humans.

“These poor misguided ‘feminatzis’ are taking public subscriptions under false pretences and there should be no taxpayer funds given to these anti-social groups whatsoever,” he said.

“There are only 22 million cattle, 75.5 million sheep, about 1.2 million horses and 4 million goats nationally, so the misinformation continues to harm the farming industry.
