Manufacture our own goods instead of the ‘fairy floss’ of the ALP/LNP free market

While ever the LNP/ALP duopoly which kowtows to China stays in power Australia will flounder until drowned

AS Australia’s biggest anti-free trade advocate, Bob Katter, Federal Member for Kennedy has weighed in on the escalating trade tensions with China, slamming successive government free trade policies and warning that unless Australia breaks the “iron ball of bureaucracy around our ankles we will continue to be a begging bowl of Asia” with cattle, cotton, barley, wine, fruit and vegetables and coal.

Mr Katter said it was unsurprising that China was showing no signs of cutting down Australia’s trade deals with the top earning commodities.

China dwarfs nearly every country when it comes to manufacturing yet subservient party politicians do as the banks tell them and keep buying goods from China that we we could make

“If you take away China as a customer, you’ve lost 30 per cent of the nation’s income, and the criminals that allowed this to happen in the Parliaments of Australia by running around with their free trade, black-dogging the all-powerful Chinese, should be shot.

“For years they were running around saying that free trade would make Australia become the “food bowl of Asia” but we are now the begging bowl of Asia, just look at our fruit and vegetables where Australia is now a net importer.

“The country is now reaping the whirlwind that feeds the greedy snivelling sycophantic slave masters, the snake like Sydney city suits living in their pleasure domes.”

Mr Katter said the only response to Beijing’s power plays was to focus on developing Australia’s self-sufficiency particularly on essential products used every day which are currently produced in China, like plastic.

“Self-sufficiency in a post-Covid world should be the catch cry and I cannot see one single item undertaking by desperate Dan the dictator, or “do what I say” Palaszczuk, the NSW Premier seems to be too busy on extra-curricular activities and while I’d like to very much to think that Josh Frydenberg would be on board, I’m afraid Josh’s background inhibits him from building this nation.

“The problem with letting business build Australia as the Treasurer believes is that businesses are carrying more bureaucracy leg iron than my burdened convict forebears ever had to carry and it is  the banks, sorry the “mortgage lenders”, that have led us to this.

“The long term benefit for Australia is to produce in our country sophisticated industrial goods and the industrial by-products of agriculture such as ethanol which opens the way to plastics manufacturing. Fancy importing all your plastic products (your Coca Cola bottles etcetera) from overseas when we could be doing it here.

“Countries like China just print the money to build a development or project; state-of-the-art economies of scale and it is not cheap labour anymore given their wages are over 50 per cent of that of Americas.

“We have the iron ball of bureaucracy around our ankles and we have banks that want to know the value of our house when we want to build a Bradfield Scheme. And the mortgage lender banks are only interested in how much they can sell a half built dam or factory for. They look to the mortgage value rather than the project.

“Australians must throw out their current political and monetary regime and replace it with an aggressive build and own our nation attitude which is the driver in America, China, Europe and Brazil.

“Instead, we are still floundering around in the fairy floss of free marketism which is an explanation and admission that we know absolutely nothing about anything and we don’t have to do anything because it will all be done for us.”

 

Qld Nationals long gone, only Liberals wearing Akubras remain

LNP in love with Greens. Queensland as we know it will disappear

The LNP’s gifting of preferences to the Greens ahead of Labor should come as no surprise but is nonetheless the final death knell on the former National party’s allegiance to rural and regional Queensland, Katter’s Australian Party Leader and Traeger MP Robbie Katter has said.

“The Liberals have well and truly won over the old Nats; and these are Liberals who appear hell-bent on selling their souls,” Mr Katter said.

Speaking on the confirmation by Opposition Leader Deb Frecklington that the LNP would preference the Greens above Labor in all 93 Queensland seats at the upcoming State Election, Mr Katter said there had been no real Nationals in Queensland politics for a long time.

Robbie Katter warns the LNP that giving Greens their preferences will see a Greens minority government which will stop all development

“In the interest of playing politics and boosting their chances of taking office in the tower of power on George Street, the LNP has betrayed everyone outside south-east Queensland,” he said.

“The LNP’s former leader Tim Nichols best stated why the LNP should put Greens last and the KAP agree with his reasons completely.

“According to Tim, and the reasoning for which he provides very publicly on social media and the internet, the Greens are: anti-jobs, anti-farmers, anti-small business, anti-property rights, anti-school choice, anti-health choice, pro-death duties, pro-carbon tax, pro-higher electricity prices and pro-more government intervention.”

“Can the Opposition Leader tell us why she thinks that Tim Nichols is wrong, and why her path is right?

“Why does she disagree that the Greens are anti-jobs?

“Why does she think that the Greens are not anti-farmers and small business?

“Why does she give support to a party that is pro-carbon tax, pro-higher electricity price and anti-coal?”

Mr Katter said while he understood the age-old rivalry between the major parties, the LNP’s decision to effectively back the Greens during what has been heralded the most important State Election in decades was narcissistic and reckless.

He said it was likely both Labor or the LNP would need to seek support from the cross-bench to form government after October 31, and that handing extra seats to the Greens could be the end of Queensland as we know it in a balance of power situation.

“The fact is that the LNP is a Brisbane party and it is not surprising that it has all come to this,” he said.

“We already know that the LNP will not support financially coal-fired power stations and that the LNP voted against a motion that the KAP pushed for, which called on governments to treat coal the same as renewables,” Mr Katter said.

“The LNP Member for Callide Colin Boyce put the interests of his electorate first and shocked us all last month when he voted with the KAP, One Nation and Jason Costigan against the mining commissioner/reef approvals legislation, which is even more lead in the saddle for miners and farmers.

“However it was the LNP who ignored the interests of regional Queensland and pandered up to the inner suburbs of Brisbane once again.

“This will be the last straw for many long-suffering LNP supporters who have put up with the LNP’s drift away from its values and its supporters to the point that it is now unrecognisable.

“What we need to know is what else the LNP will give away.

“We know that Labor is ready to pander to the extreme Left if needed; but now it would appear we have much of the same from the Opposition too.

“The LNP are ‘cityslicker wolves in sheep’s clothing’, and they should be ashamed to show their faces north of the Sunshine Coast.”

Mr Katter said the KAP had always put the Greens last on its how-to-vote cards and would do the same in the 2020 Queensland Election.

“If people want to be certain that they are putting Greens last and voting for a party which will not deal with the Greens, they should look to the KAP,” he said.

The baby killers of the Queensland Labor Party

By Jim O’Rourke, Townsville bureau

In October 2018 every Labor Member of the Queensland Parliament passed the Termination of Pregnancy bill which allows a health practitioner to abort a foetus over 22 weeks old.

The legislation allows a late term foetus to be terminated until birth at 36 weeks. Aborting this living child amounts to decriminalised murder.

Introducing the bill, the Attorney General Yvette D’Ath told parliament the bill decriminalised abortion and removed the offence of killing an unborn child from the Criminal Code.

Termination of Pregnancy Bill 2018

6 Termination by medical practitioner after 22 weeks

(1) A medical practitioner may perform a termination on a woman who is more than 22 weeks pregnant if— (a) the medical practitioner considers that, in all the circumstances, the termination should be performed; and (b) the medical practitioner has consulted with another medical practitioner who also considers that, in all the circumstances, the termination should be performed.

(2) In considering whether a termination should be performed on a woman, a medical practitioner must consider— (a) all relevant medical circumstances; and (b) the woman’s current and future physical, psychological and social circumstances; and (c) the professional standards and guidelines that apply to the medical practitioner in relation to the performance of the termination

This legislation horrified the Christian community and the Catholic church railed against the Labor Party for introducing baby killing laws.

Not only did all Labor Party MP’s vote for this abomination, so did three LNP members, Jan Stuckey (since resigned), Steve Minnikin, Tim Nicholls,  the only Greens member Michael Berkman and the sole independent Sandy Bolton.

The majority of the LNP and the three Katters Members voted against it.

Cairnsnews was told at the time this bill passed into legislation, at an ‘abortion bill’ celebration held in a hotel by some Labor members after parliament, an obviously intoxicated Deputy Premier Jackie Trad danced on a table top with a bottle of alcohol.

The Labor Party’s baby killing laws will be their Achilles heel come the state election on October 31.

Labor members who voted for this bill:

This is an extract from Hansard on October 17, 2018 which records the Ayes and Noes in favour of this revolting, Satanic bill.

It is time to flush out the child traffickers and Satanists from all Australian parliaments. It starts at the top.

The China – Jesuit partnership. Who owns China?

by Bob Thompson* (first published CN April 11, 2020)

Back in the mid-nineties I had occasion to meet a man who had a close connection to the Order of Jesuits and the Vatican.

As circumstances evolved I saved the man’s life. We developed a friendship and this led to him opening up to me about his strange life and history. I will call him Max.

One day he reacted to a comment I made that maybe the communist Chinese regime wasn’t held in serfdom to the financial and political power of the old Satanist families of Europe which the Jesuit order represented.

His response was, “I am disappointed in you. I thought you were smarter than that! I thought you knew more than most people!”

So I asked him to enlighten me, knowing that he had spent many years in China but what he confided in me was unexpected.

Chairman of Chinese Communist Party Deng Xiaoping partnered with wealthy European Jesuit families to relocate western manufacturing

During the later years of the Mao Zedong dictatorship the Jesuits sent Max into China to offer a partnership between the corrupt, wealthy European Jesuit families and the Chinese Communist Party.

Mao responded to this offer by throwing Max into jail. He remained there for quite a while until the Chinese leadership changed when Deng Xiaoping became Chairman in 1978 until retirement in 1992.

The Vatican again sent Jesuit emissaries into China with a renewed offer and Max was released from jail.

The business deal was finally put into place and today has changed the world.

Socialist China had become an impoverished, backward country with a massive military and police force.

The Jesuits offered to use their power over western nations through front organisations like the Masonic Lodge, banking industry, Catholic politicians and the various socialist assets such as environmental groups which they owned in Western Europe, America, Canada, Australia, New Zealand and the United Kingdom to transfer western industries to China.

These undercover organisations, some holding tax-free status in Commonwealth nations, pushed the free trade agenda upon the west to allow slave labour manufacturing of Chinese goods.

In exchange the Chinese communists were to agree to share the profits from this trade deal with the same old Jesuit families in Europe.

This deal has been kept secret for decades. Free trade was forced upon the western nations by the fifth column members of their political parties.

China was open for business.

Business and industry in the west had more and more taxes and environmental regulations imposed upon them, then the unions forced unsustainable wage increases allowed under China sycophants and closet Marxists PM Bob Hawke and PM Paul Keating.

Meanwhile in China it was business and manufacturing at all costs. There was no harsh and unworkable green and red tape holding it up.

Manufacturing in Australia and the US could not compete with China’s slave labour wages of $2 a day and eventually were forced to relocate their factories to China and along with their valuable, state-of-the-art equipment and patents.

Hawke’s ATO emissary shut down a Sydney manufacturing business

I met with a Sydney manufacturer at the time who made high quality fittings for gas and water installations.  He was visited by a representative of PM Hawke’s office.

The businessman was given an ultimatum, “shift your plant to China or you will be destroyed,” the government agent told him.  “All costs will be paid by the government.”

He refused the treacherous offer and a few weeks later had a visit from the Australian Tax Office. He was accused of tax fraud.  His bank accounts were closed while the ATO conducted an investigation.

Consequently the businessman was unable to pay staff or suppliers. The ATO kept up the charade until he was made bankrupt.  The business was sold and the plant and equipment went to a Chinese buyer.

One of the most destructive parts of the Jesuit – China deal was how China’s much touted economic “miracle’ was funded.

China was allowed to establish a two-tiered monetary system. Their banks did not borrow from the global banksters and did not have to accept so-called foreign investment.

Just as the Australian Treasury created $130 billion by adding extra noughts in their computers a week ago, and how Donald Trump created $2 Trillion interest-free by merging the Federal Reserve with Treasury.

Australia funded large infrastructure projects such as the Snowy River Scheme and the Nullabor Railway in the same manner. Debt-free, no extra taxes, no user pay and no foreign ownership.

After the Chinese deal there were no howls from the Jesuit-controlled media about ‘funny money’.

China went from a third world cesspit into a massive economic powerhouse in a few decades thanks to the crushing economic loss to Australia and the US.

President Trump has begun to claw back America’s former status as a manufacturing giant usurping China but the party duopoly of Australia continues to drag its feet under the weight of cash-backs, foreign bank accounts of politicians and bureaucrats and compromise on a scale that would make Indonesian politicians blush.

Now we are confronted by the Wuhan virus disaster and we have to manage with the loss of our own medical manufacturing industries which were shifted to China.

The cost of this treasonous transfer of our industrial capacity to the police state of China is clear.  This was the ultimate aim of the Jesuits in partnership with Communist China.

Max is long dead but we owe him thanks for revealing the truth about a very evil venture in which Australian politicians played a part.

I am remiss that I ought to have shared this story much sooner. Please pass it on.

The penny just dropped for Premier Palaszczuk – the ALP is on the nose

Staff writers

For Queensland Labor Premier Annastacia Palaszczuk the penny just dropped – Labor is on the nose, in fact it is putrid in the north and most other parts of the state except the spoilt south east corner.

For the past three days the entire State Cabinet descended on a languishing Cairns where the ALP has three state MP’s and another at nearby Mareeba.

Comrade Premier Palaszczuk porkbarrelling like a drunken sailor

The Labor Party has realised that strong opposition from Katters Australian Party and LNP candidates in the four, key Labor held seats could see all four sitting members exit parliament after the October 31 election and the Premier lose government.

Like a drowning man clutching at straws the Premier is lashing out with obscure, expensive projects trying to ooze into the duopoly’s pork barrel.

But the genie is already out of the barrel with the Bradfield Inland Irrigation Scheme, incidentally, which federal MP Bob Katter has been talking up for three decades.

Katter’s Australian Party Leader Robbie Katter warned North Queenslanders to be wary of lip service from both Labor and the LNP as the Brisbane-based parties attempt to out-bid one another as the number one supporters of the game-changing Revised Bradfield Scheme.

Mr Katter has thrown cold water on an announcement today by Premier Annastacia Palaszczuk that economist Professor Ross Garnaut will head the State Government’s review of proposals for the long-awaited, drought-busting scheme first proposed in the 1930s.

The discredited, token, ALP mouthpiece Professor Ross Garnaut should stick to economics for which he could have been trained.

Economist Ross Garnaut with his book on how to get rid of carbon dioxide and metres high ocean rises

 

Most people will remember Garnaut’s dire predictions resulting from his inquiry into so-called global warming.

According to Garnaut’s wild predictions ten years ago, those living along the eastern coastline would now be snorkelling  to their front doors under three metres of ocean.

Compounding her ridiculous policy thought bubbles, the Premier said she would spend millions of dollars planting trees on Cape York Peninsula. This stupid idea has enraged Cape York pastoralists who said they had spent a lifetime trying to get rid of excessive trees and thickening undergrowth to grow grass for stock.

One said there are “far many more trees on the Peninsula now than in 1770 when Captain Cook sailed past.”

Palaszczuk is a dead duck and she knows her time is up. She has two local dud MP’s, Cynthia Lui and Craig Crawford who have been unable to stem the outward flow of Labor support.

Cairnsnews can reveal neither has the support of their local branch members and both have found it extremely hard to find polling booth workers or to get any assistance with their campaigns.

Labor Member for Cook Cynthia Lui has lost all support from local ALP branches

Labor sources claim unions have been asked to help but there has been no local assistance forthcoming.

The source said polling booth volunteers from unions would probably come from southern Queensland, provided Covid rules allow it.

Crawford as Fire and Emergency Services Minister has managed to disenfranchise and lose more than 11,000 volunteers from the Rural Fire Service over mandatory blue cards and unrealistic, dangerous, bureaucratic changes to fire ground operations.

RFS members say morale has never been worse or have they ever lost so many volunteers because of political stupidity.

Lui has been missing in action from her electorate of Cook since she was first elected in 2017.

Cook stretches north from Mareeba to the PNG border. Earlier this year she made her frequent absence from the electorate permanent by moving her Mareeba office and staff to Cairns where she lives.

 

Dangerous Dan’s Covid collateral carnage too much for Victorian doctors

from News Ltd

Senior doctors across Melbourne are urging politicians not to support a state of emergency extension, saying the move threatens to “destroy” the health and wellbeing of fed-up Victorians.

In a letter to Premier Daniel Andrews, seen by NCA NewsWire, 13 medical practitioners outlined their concerns about the State Government’s response to the COVID-19 pandemic.

They say it is “vital” stage four restrictions are lifted on September 13, believe “an alternative medical response” is required and highlight key data they think is being “excluded”.

Comrade Dan Andrews of Victoria wants to lock up healthy Victorians for 12 months. Doctors reject his attempted genocide

During question time in parliament on Tuesday afternoon Opposition Upper House leader David Davis demanded the Premier and Health Minister Jenny Mikakos meet the doctors who penned the letter.

“I ask that the Minister for Health with the Premier meet with all 13 doctors to listen to their views,” he said.

In the letter the doctors wrote: “It is our professional opinion that the stage 4 lockdown policy has caused unprecedented negative economic and social outcomes in people, which in themselves are having negative health outcomes.”

Speaking to NCA NewsWire, Box Hill Hospital urologist Dr Geoff Wells said he hoped the letter would convince the government to lift harsh stage four restrictions on September 13.

“When I see my patients and ask them how they’re coping, the number one response is the sadness at not being able to see their grandchildren for three, four or five months and the ones who live on their own are extremely isolated,” he said.

 

“The mood of the population has changed dramatically in the past two weeks – there seems to be one half that is getting angrier and angrier and the other half which has just lost all hope – these policies are effecting the general psyche of the community.

“We just want to have significant input into this response instead of a blanket approach that is harming the general population.”

The letter – a combined effort from urologists, psychiatrists and surgeons – sent to the Premier’s office on Monday compared coronavirus data with other serious medical conditions such as those of nursing home residents.

Well-known Royal Melbourne Hospital transplant surgeon Dr Bob Millar, Monash Hospital orthopaedic surgeon Dr Jon Bare and Nossell Institute for Global Health public health physician Nathan Grills were among the contributors.

Professors John Murtagh, Haydn Walters and Kuruvilla George, Dr Peter Denton, Dr William Edwards, Dr Andrew Taylor, Dr Michael Knight, Dr John Mathai and Dr Eamonn Mathieson also had their say.

In the letter, the doctors said specialist referrals from GPs had fallen dramatically as a result of patients fearing they would get sick if they went out.

“As a direct consequence of this delay, many will have poorer prognoses. This has especially been the case with three consultants who treat cancer,” they wrote.

“We now know that whilst COVID-19 is highly contagious, it is of limited virulence.”

Virulence is a technical term for the severity of a disease.

“We are told that since March 2020, 565 Victorian patients have died either with or from the virus (31st August numbers). This compares with annual Victorian deaths of approximately 10,000 patients with cardiovascular disease and 11,000 with cancer.

“Accordingly, the COVID-19 deaths are a relatively small proportion of the 114 deaths per day that are normally seen in Victoria. In comparison, since the start of March COVID-19 has been associated with 3 of the 114 deaths per day.

“Most of the 565 deaths have occurred in nursing homes which according to doctors currently working in this environment have described causal factors related not only to the virus but to other care related issues, including isolation, loneliness, and related diminished nutritional intake.”

The doctors go on to write about how Victoria has seen 541 fewer flu deaths this July than last year out of a total 313,000.

“In Australia last year, 2019, in the month of July alone we had 71,000 new laboratory-confirmed cases. And a total of 313,000 laboratory confirmed cases of influenza for the year.

“This is only a fraction of the actual total cases of influenza, as many cases go untested. In August 2017 we had 99,000 new laboratory confirmed cases of Influenza and a total of over 250,000 cases for the year.

“Since June 2020, the death rate has risen sharply in aged care facilities where the risk of transmission of COVID-19 has been unacceptably high. However, the government, and the doctors advising it, have not reviewed their policy in order to focus on this vulnerable segment of the population. Instead, stage 3-4 lockdowns for the whole community have continued for no apparent scientific reason.”

The doctors recommended the state of emergency not be continued past September 13, with an agreement made for parliament to be allowed to “openly discuss and debate appropriate medical plans”.

The doctors want a panel of non-politically aligned medical and health-related experts be selected by a bipartisan parliamentary group to provide the transparent and active role of informing and advising government decisions and responses to the epidemic, as well as adequate measures, testing, and protection of the vulnerable, especially those in Aged Residential Care environments and their families and carers.

Victorian parliament will vote on the Premier’s controversial bill to extend Victoria’s state of emergency by another 12 months today.

The state recorded 70 new infections overnight, and five more deaths.

High power prices and renewable energy will finish off most industries

By Alan Moran, Saltbush Club and Cairnsnews,

Rio Tinto’s [Paywall] announced closure of its aluminium smelter in New Zealand due to uncompetitive power prices is a reminder of the vulnerability of Australia’s four remaining smelters, all of which face sharply higher prices courtesy of government energy policies. With energy costs comprising about a third of their total costs, smelters are industry’s bellwethers of future energy competitiveness and all four of Australia’s are on national suicide watch.

As a result of subsidies to wind and solar, these expensive and unreliable energy sources have caused high customer costs, both directly and indirectly, while also diverting the nation’s investment resources into avenues that actually damage the economy.

Amumina producer Rio Tinto Alcan has threatened to close its CQ Boyne Smelter over  extortionist power prices causing the loss of 3000 jobs. This would place Rio’s Weipa bauxite mine under a cloud.

The Queensland Labor Government”s suicidal rush to rely on 50 per cent renewable energy by 2030 will finish off any remaining industries that rely on base load power. Rio’s Tannum Sands aluminum smelter is struggling now with high power costs and has threatened to close down its Gladstone refinery and Boyne smelter if power charges don’t ease. This would result in the loss of more than 3000 jobs for its Gladstone  workforce.

Commonwealth and state subsidies for wind and solar energy are running at just under $7 billion a year. $4 billion of these are as a result of requirements imposed on consumers by the Commonwealth’s Renewable Energy Target, its similar provisions for roof-top installations and measures taken by state governments. Some $2 billion of assistance to renewables comes from direct subsidies.

The effect of these subsidies is compounded by their forcing out of production lower cost coal generators. As a result, prices are now double what they were three years ago, bringing the national damage to over $15 billion per year. The outcome is that from having the world’s lowest cost electricity we now suffer from being among the highest and our reliance on intermittent renewables has left supply increasingly precarious.

But it does not stop there. In order to accommodate the subsidised renewables, consumers are being required to spend vast sums to augment transmission links.

These expenditures are for two reasons. First, they are to allow the surplus from wind and solar during daytime peaks to be exported – a further subsidy to renewables. Secondly, they are to provide greater security for those regions, especially South Australia, which have become over-reliant on intermittent power, having jettisoned the in-state coal generators that provided stability and reliability. In addition, suffering from a disastrous Malcolm Turnbull thought bubble, we are in the process of converting the magnificent Snowy and Tasmanian hydro systems into quasi-batteries that will, at a cost of 30 per cent of their output, simply offset the inherent unreliability and intermittent nature of wind and solar. The Tasmanian link is likely to cost over $2 billion and Snowy2 will be far pricier than this.

At some future date we will ask how this was allowed to happen. How did we as a nation not only acquiesce in but actually finance the demise of our energy industry? Agenda 21 can provide the answers.

Obviously, the great sales pitch from the wind/solar subsidy seekers is part of the answer. That pitch promised low cost reliable electricity if only the government offered a few incentives as a bridge to this future. So also is the hysteria, on which the subsidy-seekers’ pitch partly rested, about global warming and the misinformation that this can be remedied by Australia abandoning the fossil fuels that still supply three quarters of our electricity.

But a great deal of the blame must be sheeted home to the bureaucracy, especially Treasury, formerly the gatekeeper to wasteful spending and the leader in combating other damaging proposals and policy stances. Forty years ago, under the legendary John Stone, the Commonwealth Treasury not only focused on paring back ministerial spending ambitions but was also the leader in reducing regulatory imposts – which were at that time mainly in the form of import tariffs.

Gradually Treasury has metamorphosed. Treasurers themselves, with the notable exception of Peter Costello, have been incapable of resisting the green interventionist advice that they have been offered.

Today the Treasury is headed by people who are wedded to accelerating an “inevitable” replacement of fossil fueled electricity generation to one dominated by wind, solar or some yet to be discovered alternative. Secretary Steven Kennedy was the author of the notorious 2008 Garnaut report with its panoply of taxes and new spending levers designed to transform the economy. The two senior Deputy Secretaries, Jenny Wilkinson and Meghan Quinn have also spent over a decade pressing for socialist carbon taxes and other interventions designed to push the economy in the directions they favour.

The coronavirus crisis offers an opportunity to turn back the tide before it engulfs the entire economy. Benefits include savings of over $2 billion in Commonwealth and state outlays presently wasted in direct support of renewables, a further $5 billion in regulatory forced transfers imposed on electricity customers and almost $10 billion in consequent increases in wholesale energy costs. In addition, there are the further outlays down the pike on new transmission lines and in converting the hydro schemes into renewable support facilities.

But the leading bureaucrats will not help in illuminating these opportunities and the Energy Minister is either incapable of persuading his colleagues to reverse course or he too is captive to the same environmentalist fervor.

Busting the ‘poor blackfella me’ myth

Aboriginal Australians are riding on the gravy train and based on 2016* figures released by the Productivity Commission, state and federal governments spent $33.4 billion on the indigenous industry for that year.

This equates to $44,886 for every Aborigine and Torres Strait Islander, or at least people claiming to be indigenous, compared to $22,356 each for non-indigenous citizens across the 150 expenditure categories.

https://www.pc.gov.au/research/ongoing/indigenous-expenditure-report/2017/ier-2017-indigenous-expenditure-report.pdf

Whatever way it is looked at, putting aside the crescendo of racist screams from the pseudo indigenous mob marching in the streets demanding more taxpayers money, indigenous people are twice as well off compared to non-indigenous in financial terms.

Indigenous Australians plundering the public purse get twice as much as non-indigenous

If we take Cape York Peninsula, home to about 5000 Aborigines and Torres Strait Islanders, their living conditions are exactly what they choose.

The 14 isolated Peninsula and Gulf local government communities have more than double per capita spent on them than the rest of Australia. There they have well-funded government programs of every shape and size which have been ongoing for more than 40 years.

There are many thousands of government bureaucrats, quangos and NGO staff running these programs which are in the hundreds and too many to publish in this format, even if we could find all of them.

Housing and health consume much of the total annual budget. There are a dozen Aboriginal and Islander health organisations with offices in Cairns and every remote community including the Torres Strait. They operate large fleets of cars and buses all assigned with fuel cards.

The federal government is spending $4 billion over the next four years on the Indigenous Australian Health Program.

Another $90 million for primary health care was committed on July 1.

Indigenous Healthcare services for Queensland cost the taxpayer $1, 670.9 billion in 2016.

The hospitals and clinics in these communities are equipped with the latest medical equipment and staffed by well-trained black and white nurses and doctors.

There are five Queensland Ambulance Service bases across the Peninsula boasting some of the best trained staff in the country.

Royal Flying Doctor Service aircraft and doctors are continually servicing Aboriginal communities across the north, running regular clinics and transporting injured or sick patients to Cairns Base hospital on a daily basis.

A festering point of contention among Cape York residents is priority of patients for medical emergencies.

Although the Royal Flying Doctor Service will not admit it, pastoralists and other inhabitants claim Aborigines get priority over them for emergency medical evacuation flights.

Perhaps flights are prioritised on a financial basis? Which patient attracts the best contribution?

Housing for remote communities between 2008 and 2018 cost taxpayers more than $1 billion.

An election promise of another $105 million is expected to roll out over the next 12 months for remote northern indigenous housing.

The building industry benefits greatly from housing construction across the north where the average cost of a three bedroom dwelling is about $600,000. This does not include land.

In spite of continual drug and alcohol induced rioting at the Aurukun Aboriginal community, which saw six of these expensive homes burnt down last year, the capitulating Queensland Government is busy rebuilding them at great expense. These dwellings could easily be burnt down again in the ongoing warfare among the five community tribes.

Nationally, Indigenous Education and Training expenditure for the 2016 financial year was $5.776 billion, with Queensland’s share in 2016 costing $1,463.5 billion.

Every northern indigenous community has a modern school which is the envy of every teacher outside of the Far North. Technology has not been spared in these schools and most indigenous students, that is those who attend, are whiz-kids when it comes to mobile phone and internet ability.

The federal government in response to the Covid 19 destruction of the national economy is paying the displaced workforce of more than one million employees $1500 per fortnight to sit on their bums at home.

Dole payments have been doubled from $540 a fortnight to more than $1000 a fortnight which has provided a booze bonanza for many Aborigines lounging around on their boasted “sit down money.”

Is it any wonder most industries and farmers cannot get employees back to work?

Those who cry “poor blackfella me” should crawl back under their rocks.

Covid cops coming soon to a place near you

KTSX News

A Kentucky couple is under house arrest after one of them tested positive for coronavirus and refused to sign self-quarantine papers.

On Saturday, Elizabeth Linscott of Hardin County got tested for COVID-19 because she was planning to go visit her parents in Michigan.

Covid cops coming soon to a place near you to fit ankle bracelets for a bacteria that has a lower fatality rate than the flu. The Queensland Marxist labor Government has substituted Health officer Jeanette Young with police union megalomaniac Ian Leavers to demonise the public

“My grandparents wanted to see me, too, so, just to make sure that you know, if I tested negative, that they would be okay, everything would be fine,” Linscott said.

After testing positive but without showing any symptoms — Elizabeth says the health department contacted her — requesting she sign documents.

“Pretty much it was I agreed to consent to. I agreed to comply to call the health department if I was to go. I was to call the health department if I was to leave my house for any reason,” she said.

Elizabeth chose to not sign.

“I had gotten a message from them, a text message that stated, because of your refusal to sign, this is going to be escalated, and law enforcement will be involved.”

On Thursday, the Hardin County Sheriff’s Dept. greeted Elizabeth’s husband, Isaiah, at their front door.

“I open up the door, and there’s like eight different people, five different cars, and I’m like what the heck’s going on? This guy’s in a suit with a mask. It’s the health department guy, and they have three papers for us. For me, her and my daughter.”

The couple was ordered to wear ankle monitors. If they travel more than 200 feet law enforcement will be notified.

“We didn’t rob a store. We didn’t steal anything. We didn’t hit and run. We didn’t do anything wrong,” Linscott said.

The couple says they never denied self-quarantining. They just didn’t agree with the wording of the documents.

“And, that’s exactly what the director of the public health department told the judge, that I was refusing to self-quarantine because of this, and I’m like that’s not the case at all. I never said that.”

Elizabeth Linscott says even without the ankle monitor she had planned to be cautious.

She says if she had needed medical care she would have let healthcare workers know she was infected with the virus.

Undercover Covid-cops raid Qld pub terrorising patrons and publican with a $6672 fine

from Townsville Bureau

Only 2 recorded Covid cases in Brisbane, Queensland as of today

Katter’s Australian Party leader and Traeger MP Robbie Katter has called for the Police Minister to intervene after struggling outback Queensland pubs were slapped with fines at the weekend for breaching COVID-19 social distancing rules.

Mr Katter said it was beyond outrageous that the Palaszczuk Labor Government was presiding over a system that hits outback businesses in the hip-pocket, but gives a free pass to 30,000-plus BLM people attending a single protest in downtown Brisbane.

He is now calling for Police Minister Mark Ryan, or the Premier, to overturn the fines in the interest of community fairness and decency.

“Rural, regional and remote Queensland had been among the hardest hit locations economically during the COVID-19 pandemic, despite many areas not recording a single positive case of the virus,” he said.

“We have been saying all along that it is nonsensical for the outback to be persecuted under the same rules as the city, and now we are seeing this unfairness in reverse.

“The bush has been grossly and unfairly targeted – what are they trying to achieve here?”

According to the ABC, Queensland Police confirmed three businesses at Roma, Injune and Wallumbilla had been fined during a ‘police sting’ where plain-clothes officers were not asked for contact details, and because social distancing was not properly enforced. [1]

Kennedy MP Bob Katter said the weekend’s events were another example of regional Queensland bearing the burden of the south-east corner.

Here it is folks, the first round fired in the upcoming Covid wars where you will need a Covid pass in your pocket to go to public events, cafes, restaurants, public buildings, driving your car and of course now pubs. Welcome to Queensland the police state. “The brainless Chief Health Officer and even more intellectually deficient Premier have been given a truck load of medical evidence from some of the best epidemiologists in the world saying ‘social distancing’ is unnecessary and does not prevent infection by a virus. It is a part of the WHO and Deep State agenda for mass tracking Covi-Pass Immunity Passports and massive 5G facial recognition programs to be rolled out world-wide as espoused by Bill Gates,” Editor

“Once again Brisbane is applying ridiculous rules to regional Queensland that should only apply to the metropolis,” Mr Katter Snr said.

“I mean oh ghee, we’ve had a huge coronavirus outbreak in the town of Injune – the only area that ever needed quarantining was Brisbane. The only cases we got were the ones they sent us.

“Some 150 doctors signed a petition calling for regional areas to be protected off.

“There was never a case for the draconian lockdowns and the destruction of the economy of every regional Queensland town.

“As Slim Dusty’s song goes, ‘I’ve got the pub and general store what’s the use in anymore.’

This is what you will need by 2022 to drive your car or to travel anywhere in Australia or the world, all based on the Coronahoax believed by a lot of dumbed-down Aussies.(MPN News)

“Close the pub and there is no town – it is the very existence of these communities; these pub owners have already suffered a huge financial burden during the last four months, so this could be the straw that breaks the camel’s back.

“The local coppers traditionally have known policing needs the cooperation of the people.

“This piece of jackbooted Brisbane-ism will be remembered.”

Foreigners own 20 per cent of Australian water rights – up 6.7 per cent in one year

Mindless farmers continuing to support the LNP can expect more of the same

THE amount of foreign owned agricultural properties and water entitlements in Australia continues to skyrocket, with the newly released Foreign Investment Review Board (FIRB) figures for the 2019 financial year revealing nearly 20% of Queensland’s water entitlements are now foreign owned – a 6.7% increase in just one year.

Kennedy MP, Bob Katter said the figures made him sick to the stomach, but didn’t surprise him in the slightest knowing the traitors who were running the country.

“As outrageous as the figures are, they are wildly inaccurate,” he said.

“They don’t take into account the shareholding of Australian companies that belong to foreigners, which would make the overall foreign ownership of water entitlements and land much higher.”

Bob Katter warns foreigners now own 9044 Australian farming properties, up 3.8%

The 2019 financial year FIRB report showed the amount of foreign held water entitlements in Australia was up by 1.9%, to 10.5% of overall water entitlements, and the number of agricultural properties with a level of foreign interest was up 3.8% to 9,044 properties nationwide.

Mr Katter introduced The Foreign Acquisitions and Takeovers Amendment (Strategic Assets) Bill 2020 to the Federal Parliament earlier this year to keep Aussie water, strategic assets and land in Aussie hands.

“If the Government has any sense of sovereignty or national pride they’ll bring on the Bill for a vote at the next sitting and support it,” he said.

“On behalf of the Australian people we say no more foreign ownership. Nearly everyone I meet is sick of the sale of our assets including the Port of Darwin, Ord Stage II and Stage III, much of the Murray-Darling Basin and four of our biggest farms.”

Labor branch stacking and electoral fraud in Victoria tip of the iceberg – in Qld it’s an art form

by Robert J Lee

Labor branch stacking comes hand-in-hand with false electoral roll entries but the Murdoch media and the ABC have not included this corruption in their reporting of branch-stacking imperator and Victorian MP Adem Somyurek.

For decades the ALP has perfected the art of branch and electoral roll stacking. Evidence the inquiry into Queensland voting fraud when Labor imprimatur Mike Kaiser had been caught out fiddling with the electoral roll which sparked the Shepherdson Inquiry into Electoral Fraud.

An April 2001 report presented the results of the independent Inquiry by the Honourable Tom Shepherdson, QC, into allegations of electoral fraud.

The Inquiry was prompted when a member of the Australian Labor Party, Karen Lynn Ehrmann, made serious public allegations about the possibility of electoral fraud by members of the Queensland branch of the ALP.

Queensland Labor imprimatur Mike Kaiser has not been left off the party endowment list by attracting plum highly paid jobs for copping it sweet in 2001 for Labor and union voting fraudsters. His latest lucrative jaunt as a KPMG partner was to assist the State Government with its Coronavirus jobs strategy.

Allegations examined by the Inquiry related to two main categories of false enrollment, forgery and consensual false enrollment. The information gathered during the Inquiry clearly established that the practice of making consensual false enrollments to bolster the chances of specific candidates in pre-selections was regarded by some Party members as a legitimate campaign tactic.

The Inquiry uncovered evidence of forgery, but there was significant difficulty in obtaining evidence to establish who was responsible.

There was no evidence indicating that the tactic had been generally used to influence the outcome of public elections.

This was due to the limited scope of the Inquiry reviewing illegal activities only between 1993 to 1997. This paper was tabled in Parliament on 1 May 2001.

ALP Member for Woodridge in 2001 Mike Kaiser quit parliament after being outed by the Inquiry, taking the hit for numerous other ALP and union identities involved in voting fraud.

Two other Labor MP’s were forced to resign.  Kaiser’s indiscretions were rewarded in 2010 by slotting him into the NBN Board on $450,000 a year.

In essence, to enable ALP branch members a vote for election candidates they have to be on the electoral roll.

In larger branches factional interests wanting a particular candidate to be endorsed simply pad the electoral roll with names of people literally off the street. These names, real or not, end up on the roll.

The proxies of these ‘voters’ are used to stack the numbers for a candidate’s endorsement. What the major media did not mention in the Victorian affair is that in marginal electorates these fictitious names are then given to unionists or Labor members and supporters to vote with at general elections.

If there are sufficient bogus numbers on the roll the election result can be swayed in the ALP’s or LNP’s favour.

In tight electorates just 50 false entries can change the result.

The Federal seat of Herbert in Townsville was taken by the ALP with just 37 votes after a recount in 2016. This result was without doubt enabled by voting fraud utilising false enrollments and those voting more than once.

The losing Liberal candidate stated he would seek a remedy in the Court of Disputed Returns but soon dropped the action after LNP backroomers realised court action would expose their voting fraud activities.

It is of note that the very first piece of legislation enacted by the incoming Queensland Labor Government in 2015 was to repeal the previous Liberal government law requiring identification before voting.

In 2018 the Joint Standing Committee on Electoral matters staunchly recommended the Federal Government enact an identification requirement before the 2019 federal election. Prime Minister Scott Morrison steadfastly refused to implement any ID requirement for voters.  He won the election in 2019 by just two seats.

Since the Australian Electoral Commission stopped checking the accuracy of the rolls nearly 25 years ago by conducting physical habitation checks going door-to-door verifying occupants, election results have been manipulated to choose a government.

The AEC and the Queensland Electoral Commission will howl that their rolls are accurate but in 2004 the AEC Commissioner admitted to then Senator Len Harris there were more than 400,000 entries on the roll whose identity could not be verified.

Recent investigations by Vote Australia revealed the rolls remained in a mess, in fact former President of the organisation Lex Stewart said the roll was full of bogus entries certainly sufficient to change the course of a federal or state election.

Readers should realise the Liberal Party too has been renown for branch stacking but to our knowledge is not involved in stacking the roll with large numbers.

Cairnsnews has been leading the charge nationally to expose widespread voting fraud which has changed the outcome of past elections.

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 not known at this address’ being returned to their office unopened.

The ABS used addresses from the AEC electoral roll to mail out ballot forms to voters.
