Labor Prime Ministerial aspirants never had a real job but want to run Australia – God help us if that happens
Anthony Norman Albanese born 2 March 1963) is an Australian politician serving as Leader of the Opposition and leader of the Australian Labor Party (ALP) since 2019. He has been member of parliament (MP) for the division of Grayndler since 1996. Albanese was deputy prime minister of Australia under the second Rudd Government in 2013 and a Cabinet Minister in the Rudd and Gillard Governments from 2007 to 2013.
Albanese was born in Sydney and attended St Mary’s Cathedral College, before going on to the University of Sydney to study economics. He joined the Labor Party as a student, and before entering parliament worked as a party official and research officer. Albanese was elected to the House of Representatives at the 1996 election, winning the seat of Grayndler in New South Wales. He was first appointed to the Shadow Cabinet in 2001 and went on to serve in a number of roles, eventually becoming Manager of Opposition Business in 2006.
After completing his economics degree, Albanese took on a role as research officer to the then-Minister for Local Government andAdministrative Services, Tom Uren, who would become a mentor to him. In 1989, the position of Assistant General Secretary of the New South Wales branch of the Labor Party became vacant when John Faulkner was elected to the Senate. The election to replace him was closely disputed between the Labor Left’s Hard Left and Soft Left groupings, with Albanese being elected with the backing of the Hard Left, taking on that role for the next six years. In 1995, he left the position to work as a senior adviser to New South Wales PremierBob Carr.
Solicitor Richard Marles was elected to Federal Parliament as the Member for Corio in November 2007.
Marles is the Deputy Leader of the Australian Labor Party, Shadow Minister for National Reconstruction, Employment, Skills and Small Business, and Shadow Minister for Science.

Coles sacked the last of its unvaccinated staff at the beginning of this year, long after state mandates fell and other industries began allowing the so-called mavericks of the workforce back into the office. The move, along with other supermarket giants, saw thousands of Australians unceremoniously dumped, many of them single mothers or from struggling households.
‘Shop safe at Coles’ is something that looks good printed in big letters across double-page ads to those still suffering from anxiety hangovers. Just don’t ask too many questions about the health logic, given unvaccinated people can shop in the store, but not stand behind the counter.
Speaking of corporate virtue signalling.
The same company turned around this week and announced it would be offering its trans and gender-diverse employees ten extra days of paid leave for the purpose of ‘gender affirmation’. ‘Affirmation’ is a hazy term that Coles describes as ‘any process’ that relates to the act of gender affirmation including surgical, social, legal, or medical action. Leave could be granted for anything from an appointment with a lawyer through to full surgery.
Gender Affirmation Leave was timed to coincide with the International Day Against Homophobia, Biphobia, Intersexism, and Transphobia – one of the dozens of days and months dedicated to a sexual preference or pronouns.
Coles Chief Legal and Safety Officer, David Brewster, (who also serves as the Chairman of the Pride Steering Committee), released a statement.
‘We know that we have at least 900 team members who identify as transgender or gender diverse. We need to have proper policy and education in this area so there is clear guidance around taking leave for this important transition in their life.’
Coles attached a long and bizarre ‘gender affirming’ statement that seems a little over the top for employment that largely involves stacking shelves and pushing trolleys. Its headings include ‘encouraging you to be your authentic self’ and ‘developing our Pride Team member network’ – which doesn’t sound like something employers should concern themselves with.
This move, described as ‘way ahead of politicians’ (add to that logic, reason, and fairness) is meant to be an action against ‘trans hate’. 2022 has transitioned into a world where an employer who is not constantly, publicly, and (preferably financially) ‘affirming’ an employee they must, by default, hate them. For most of human history, workers preferred their employers to keep their noses out of any private medical business.
‘You’ll be supported as the gender with which you identify, wear the clothes or uniform of your affirmed gender, use the toilets and change rooms of your affirmed gender and be referred to by the name of your affirmed gender too,’ read a statement, issued by Coles.
The statement leans heavily toward sentiments of anti-discrimination and equity – which is fine, one is simply left to wonder where this emotionally sensitive Coles hurt-feelings committee was when it was ruthlessly sacking unvaccinated staff who simply wanted to keep their jobs and their body autonomy at the same time. Coles went one step further, attempting to impose its vaccination policies on unrelated suppliers, contractors, partners, and anyone working onsite.
And no. If you’re an employee with a non-gender related medical or emotional issue, you’ll have to plan ahead and sacrifice some of your holiday leave when you run out of the standard state-sanctioned medical allotment. No one is going to give you a Woke Virtue point for a hip replacement.

Yet again, further evidence of meticulous planning and what *they* have had in store for us for some time.
$119 million spent on another ‘vaccine’, expressly Jynneos, which incidentally, Monkeypox was mysteriously added to the smallpox ‘vaccine’ – and approved in 2019 by another Big Pharma giant Bavarian-Nordic.
Bavarian-Nordic have been involved all along with the Convid ‘vaccine’. Flying under the radar.
They are also a member of the Alliance for Biosecurity.
Another ’vaccine’ which they have approved for manufacture transfer was in place for 2020 – 2025.
Yes, through to 2025.
This ‘vaccine’ is for none other than TBE (Tick-borne Encephalitis). BOOM!
As with Lumpy-Skin-disease-Littleproud’s Japanese Encephalitis, this is a disturbingly recurring word.

(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.
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.
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?

Anyone found breaching Covid rules in South Australia could be punished with two years jail as new laws are set to sail through state parliament this week.
LABOR PREMIER Peter Malinauskas orchestrated a shock cross-bench deal with support from the Greens and SA Best, but the opposition and civil liberties groups have voiced their fury at the move.
“Labor did a quick backroom deal because Peter Malinauskas is desperate to have the power to lock up (people) and dish out huge Covid-19 fines at the drop of a hat,” a Liberal Party spokesman told the Adelaide Advertiser.
Under the Public Health Act legislation, individuals who breach isolation requirements, or ignore vaccination mandates and mask rules in high-risk settings such as hospitals or nursing homes, can be fined $20,000 or face two years in prison.
Businesses found to be breaking those rules can be hit with a massive $75,000 fine.

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.
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.
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?

Nearly 1500 fed up Cairns residents turned up today for a rally along the Esplanade finishing in the CBD with election candidates speaking from a podium.
There are 11 candidates contesting the seat of Leichardt held by Liberal Warren Entsch, the architect of gay marriage laws.
Entsch naturally did not attend or did the Labor candidate Elida Faith. No doubt they could have held fears for their safety had they shown up.
The protest was well organised and there were no arrests for unruly behaviour. Police stopped traffic while protesters converged onto the mall area for short speeches from candidates.
All called for the demise of LNP, ALP and Greens describing them as traitors to the people for selling the country out and their police-state Covid responses.
Bob Katter said he would be investigating the prospects of prosecuting Queensland Labor Premier Annastacia Palaszczuk for killing off small business and enforcing vaccine mandates.
Every candidate spoke extremely well and it should be comforting that Cairns residents have so many capable independents to choose from on the ballot paper.
It was indeed refreshing to hear from KAP, UAP, One Nation, Informed Medical Options Party, Australian Federation Party and Fusion Party.
