The insect farmer representatives of the World Economic Forum addressed a meeting of 100 primary producers at Mareeba, Far North Queensland recently, feeding the crowd with bread made from 336 crickets and wheat flour.
The WEF tentacles are spreading across the nation conditioning the population to eat insects while their climate change ‘great reset’ is disassembling farms, water supplies and food chains.
When traditional food supplies are shut down, leftist WEF Director Klaus Schwab says “everyone will own nothing an be happy.”
Described as “futuristic farming themes” Cairns insect farmer Stirling Tavener of ‘Bugs Alive’ with the help of Alessandros Pizzeria and Antipasto Bar have developed a cricket meal bread which was available throughout the day.
He said crickets are considered environmentally friendlier and had a much lower carbon dioxide footprint than cattle, pigs and sheep, require less resources to produce but are high in protein, fibre and Vitamin B.
Green Food Australia managing director and founder Jess Uhlig tackled the vexed issue of how to remove fertiliser from agriculture by developing natural alternatives.
It seems the elephant at the meeting was totally ignored. Over the past decade Tablelands farmers have attended a number of gatherings to address declining food nutrition from depleted soils which after 100 years of continuous production has been ‘mined’ of nearly all essential trace elements and minerals necessary to produce healthy and nutritious food.
Kingaroy soil nutritionist and farmer Mr John Koehler told a meeting held at Yungaburra some years ago that Australian soils generally, were simply a “medium to hold up a plant.”
He provoked a great deal of mirth when he told the meeting of about 50 farmers that there was “more nutrition in the cardboard box the produce was packed in than in the produce itself.”
“Our soils are seriously depleted of essential elements to produce any nutritious food including livestock,” Mr Koehler said.
“Today there is only half the nutrition in beef than there was 50 years ago.”
Mr Koehler was critical of carbon dioxide farming and its derivatives which would eventually kill all food production, something he says is a part of the world depopulation plan signed up to by Australia in the Paris Agreement.
“Jess Uhlig’s fanciful ideas about ‘natural alternatives’ continues the anti-scientific sophistry of the ratbag Prince Charles’ organic themes that there are natural minerals and artificial minerals,” he said.
“There is only one atomic structure for all elements on the periodic table. This garbage can only be marketed to the sheeple after years of the dumbing down of our children with their socialist school curriculum by the removal of any useful learning and replacing it with Marxist indoctrination.
“This has led to total ignorance of how creation works as evidenced by the more or less general acceptance that an essential and vital trace gas, carbon dioxide upon which all life depends, is a deadly pollutant and causes ‘climate change’.
“The great brainwashed masses suck in this total rubbish and struggle to find ways to ‘reduce our carbon footprint’ so as to receive the accolades of their fellow victims. The reality is that the more CO2 we can produce or rather release into the atmosphere to be usable to plant growth the better for all the planet’s ecosystems.
“The WEF and the United Nations Agenda 21 which Australia signed in 1992, is a plan to destroy the worlds population by about 95 per cent as they have committed to in their genocidal Bio-diversity Treaty that requires food production and the plentiful, cheap supply of energy stopped.”
He said the repair and rebuilding of soils on a massive scale worldwide needs to be a prime duty of all governments.
“The fertiliser industry should be taken out of the hands of global cartels and placed into farmer-controlled co-operatives with full government support. Organic fantasies are just that,” Mr Koehler explained.
“If an essential element is missing from soil it has to be introduced from mineral deposits.
“The problem facing agriculture is that the proper balances and total necessary levels for each food crop remain a mystery for most so-called experts in our universities and the poor-quality graduates from these politically correct institutions.
“The minute you hear an expert dribble on about carbon footprints you must know that you have a real live idiot on the loose. Someone that sings off the politically correct music sheet just to keep their job, regardless of the consequences should be ignored.
“Proposals to eat disease carrying insects shows a damaged mind which has been ‘Aristotled’ not educated.
“These people were merely taught what to think, not how to think.
“We need laws that make it a crime to promote any of this carbon pollution fiction. These people are contributing to national suicide,” Mr Koehler concluded.
QPWS Minister Meaghan Scanlon refuses to acknowledge a secret 10 year plan to eradicate all cattle on Cape York
by Jim O’Toole, Townsville Bureau
The Queensland Parks and Wildlife Service continues its wanton shooting of extremely valuable straying cattle on unfenced Cape York national parks and Aboriginal land in most cases without the knowledge or authority of Traditional Owners and pastoralists.
The Queensland Labor Party Corporation is denying an alternative, cheap supply of protein to Peninsula Aboriginal communities by shooting and not allowing indigenous mustering teams to catch and slaughter these cattle for consumption in communities where the price of beef imported from Cairns or elsewhere averages $25 for one slice of beef steak at supermarkets.
There are three licenced slaughter houses on Cape York Peninsula where cattle could be processed.
Presently local communities have to resort to catching and consuming dwindling dugong and turtle populations for just a minimum protein intake.
On June 26, in response to complaints from Traditional Owners and local pastoralists we sent the below media inquiry to Minister Scanlon to which we have not received a reply.
The aerial culling by supposedly trained shooters who “shoot only unbranded stock” is laughable according to independent aerial shooter and nearby veteran cattle producer Mr John Witherspoon who shot many thousands of his own stock during the BTEC eradication campaign during the 1980’s.
He said is it impossible to distinguish between branded and unbranded cattle that are crashing through scrub at 40 – 50 klms per hour or galloping in high-grassed open forest being chased by a noisy helicopter.
Last year the QPWS claimed branded stock were not being shot or being wounded or maimed by QPWS employed shooters using 7.62 mm semi-auto rifles.
The QPS stated cattle were being killed by head shots only. Eye witness reports given to Cairns News were that many cattle, branded and unbranded were left to die with gut shots or broken limbs.
Recently commercial aircraft passengers witnessed a number of dead cattle on the ground at Heathlands National Park north east of Weipa, causing them anger and distress.
The media inquiry below was not replied to by Minister Scanlon, a former Gold Coast solicitor. Cape York residents have told Cairns News they would be starting a class action against the QPWS which would be filed in the Federal Court, Cairns.
QPWS Cairns manager Chris Kinnaird would be a respondent it was claimed:
Minister Meaghan Scanlon
June 26, 2022
We have been made aware of an official Cape York Peninsula 10 year plan to eradicate all cattle from national parks, government nature reserves, private nature reserves, aboriginal-held land, DOGIT leases, Katter leases or any other land not held under a Pastoral Holding lease.
This in itself is a monumentally erroneous mission when few if any national parks are fenced.
CSIRO, in conjunction with Aboriginal-owned Normanby Station last year started a funded research project to electronically track the movements of cattle on Cape York Peninsula.
CSIRO refuses to release any information to us about this project.
Could you please confirm this ten year plan because as we write your officers are illegally shooting quite valuable cattle on national parks and Aboriginal land.
We have seen legal advice that these cattle do not belong to NPWS or the State Government in any shape or form.
Take note that when the State purchases Cape York properties, most of them former cattle stations, they are bought unstocked, eg, Dixie Station, Bramwell Station, Mt Kroll.
The only exception we are aware of is when Premier Beattie forced then lessees of Shelburne Bay Station to exit the property after refusing to renew their lease. In this case the State purchased the in situ cattle circa 2003.
Since then almost all of these Shelburne cattle have been either caught by local pastoralists or shot by NPWS.
Take note we have spoken directly to very experienced and professional aerial shooters who state that cattle or horses shot from the air cannot be differentiated between feral or domestic, branded or unbranded.
Indeed contributors to this news service have direct aerial shooting experience and confirm this fact.
It is legal malfeasance to suggest that cattle being shot have been abandoned by their owners after any period of time.
You should take cognizance of the fact that the entire Peninsula was officially declared stock-free by the DPI circa 1989 after the BTEC shoot out.
All cattle including their progeny re-introduced there since then have been purchased by pastoralists.
Can you please confirm that the long term plan for the Peninsula is to hand over the entire land mass to Aboriginal PBC’s and or other indigenous entities.
When does NPWS intend to shoot on Bromley NP, Batavia NP, Wenlock River and Wattle Hills?
Will the NPWS resume shooting along the Archer and Coen Rivers and when?
We are aware that pastoralists can apply for permits to enter national parks to recover their cattle but the process and conditions are so lengthy and onerous they either don’t apply or do so rarely receiving a ;permit.
Your early advice on all questions would be appreciated.#
The Queensland National Parks Service is about to aerial shoot cattle belonging to the few remaining graziers on Cape York Peninsula.
Affected landowners on Cape York were emailed a week ago by the parks office in Cairns advising feral cattle would be shot along river courses and park boundaries starting on March 8.
Over the past three years more than 5000 cattle worth more than $6m on today’s market have been wantonly killed on the orders of the Queensland Labor Party Minister Meaghan Scanlon a young Gold Coast lawyer who has not ever held a real job.
Last year Coen residents saw dead cattle along a bush track that had been shot from a helicopter chartered by the parks.
A local resident told Cairns News several cows, calves and bulls had been indiscriminately gut-shot, shot in the legs and elsewhere and there would have been no one shot kills.
The carcasses provide an easy food source for the thousands of feral pigs and wild dogs living unmolested on national parks.
The resident said some of the cattle were branded and were the property of local land owners. Local aborigines also complained they could have caught the cattle on national parks and along river courses giving them work in a jobless district and reuniting them with some self-respect rather than surviving on sit-down welfare money.
Cairns News doubts the Minister has ever been to Cape York or witnessed the alcohol and drug abuse among some communities.
Attempts to bring the issue to the notice of State Parliament in this sittings have failed as graziers who received emails from parks officer Chris Kinnairv in Cairns have been reluctant to publicise them in fear of retribution from the Labor Party Government or the parks.
Such is the atmosphere that has existed on Cape York for decades. Pastoralists, except for an outspoken few who care about the proper management of country, live in fear of having their leases taken from them by a bully-boy Labor Party and an out-of-control national parks service.
In response to inquiries made last year made by state Member for Traeger Robbie Katter an Environment Department spokesman said only the best shooters were employed to cull cattle and that no branded cattle were being shot.
Veteran Cape York cattle producer John Witherspoon begged to differ saying he has had his cattle shot by helicopter in the past and fears for his branded cattle he knows have been running on an unfenced, nearby national park for the past 12 months or longer.
“The parks have us over a barrel. They won’t let us go onto the park to muster our branded and unbranded cattle unless we jump through a lot of hoops,” Mr Witherspoon said.
“We have to apply for a permit which takes a minimum of 40 days before we get an answer.
“By then the cattle could go anywhere or be shot by the parks.
“”Any vehicle going onto the park has to be registered and roadworthy, insured and we need public liability of $20m, but there are few registered property vehicles on Cape York, because it simply costs too much and is unnecessary for day to day running.
Mr Witherspoon disputed the Environment Dept claim that only feral or unbranded cattle are shot.
“Firstly the parks do not own any cattle. When they take over a grazing property they are destocked and most of the properties are unfenced.
“Any cattle straying onto a national park belong to somebody, usually the adjoining landowner or the former cattle producer who owned the property.
“In the late 80’s the entire Cape York Peninsula cattle herd was shot out because of the BTEC (brucellosis tuberculosis eradication campaign) and declared by the government at the time as officially destocked.
“I shot many thousands of cattle from the air as a part of this campaign and it is impossible to tell if cattle are branded or not especially when most shooting is in thick scrub.
“It is not easy to do and one shot kills are rare.”
As a consequence of the government’s declaration that the entire Cape York Peninsula landmass was stock free in the early 90’s after the BTEC shoot out, any cattle that exist there now are descendants of cattle introduced by re-stocking pastoralists.
The National Parks have been contacted for comment.
The Queensland State Government’s push to depopulate the regions has taken another turn for the worse as farmers in the Paradise Dam irrigation area in the South Burnett face water allocations of just 14 per cent, down from a usual 80 per cent.
Because of a farcical lowering of the dam wall by the state government owned entity Sunwater, allegedly due to engineering faults, farmers will suffer.
Irrigators say it will be the end of the line for many of them.
Then the socialist state government plans to allow the corrupt Royal Society for Prevention of Cruelty to Animals to rewrite the animal cruelty act which is akin to placing Dracula in charge of the blood bank.
Farmers will be decimated by new and harsh animal cruelty laws which will make livestock ownership impractical and nonviable by stopping the castrating, fire branding and dehorning of male cattle– thus driving more farmers from the regions.
The Nationals, once the farmers’ friend has dumped its core support base in the bush and now is cosying up to the Liberals and the inner-city latte set.
Three Katters Australian Party state members assisted by a lone One Nation member have been representing rural Queensland in the absence of the LNP for the past two terms of parliament.
With the livestock industry at its most buoyant in recent history and cattle numbers at an all time low the Labor Party can see another opportunity to push people from the bush to make them re-settle in the cities where they can be controlled under the providential Covid regime hoax.
The depopulation agenda which will ultimately result in a loss of production as family farms falter, has also got a hand up from another prong of the Labor attack.
Pastoralists on Cape York Peninsula, the last bastion of cheap cow breeder country in Australia have been active on the front line for a decade or more defending their Pastoral Holdings from the ongoing Labor and Greens assault.
Aboriginal encroachment of their properties is steady and continuous as graziers are forced to negotiate Indigenous Land Use Agreements with Aboriginal Prescribed Body Corporations before any change of land use such as building stock water dams or clearing fence lines.
Then along ride the cowboy cops from Cairns in deference to local police operations hammering white pastoralists along property roads and insignificant tracks sometimes on private property enforcing unworkable traffic and gun policies, issuing huge fines for unregistered farm vehicles or for carrying a firearm in a vehicle without it being locked up.
As one white cattle worker said: “I was fined by a Cairns copper for driving an unregistered four wheel drive car along a private road running through our property and this is not the first time they have struck on the Cape. They check the cars for road- worthiness. It is going on all the time.
“They are trying to drive us out and give the land back to the blacks to do nothing with and let it go to wasteland like all the other cattle properties they have seized.”
Road worthy certificates are not required in Cook Shire which covers all of Cape York.
Another grazier was apprehended on a road through his property for carrying a firearm in his vehicle, about to shoot a wild dog he saw menacing his sheep, goats and calves. The errant and hopeless cowboy cop from Cairns grabbed his gun, immediately checked the chamber of the bolt action rifle and in doing so unknowingly chambered a round from the magazine. He waved the rifle about uncontrollably causing the occupants of the car to duck fearing they would be shot. The officer did not know how to operate a simple bolt action rifle. Remember he carries a semi-auto .40 cal Glock lead pelter.
Then along came Wyatt Earp, the sharpest aerial shooter in the north. Contracted by the national parks service, helicopter culling of cattle, horses and pigs has been quietly going on for several years. Valuable branded and unbranded cattle belonging to white pastoralists straying into any state or Aboriginal owned land have been shot from the air often leaving wounded animals suffering for days on the ground.
One white pastoralist was left fuming when a horse was shot from the air at a salt lick trough and left to die while its foal was running in circles around its helpless mother.
Leaving a mare to die and rot at a crucial salt trough kept the traumatised cattle away until the manager turned up a week or more later to replenish the salt which the cattle had not touched.
The pastoralist said the foal lived and now runs with the cattle.
These atrocious government-sanctioned activities are an almost daily event on Cape York according to those who live there which they say are part and parcel of the campaign to drive them off their properties.
Another attempt to surreptitiously shoot valuable cattle north east of Weipa two weeks ago was thwarted when an alert property owner spotted several drums of Avgas aviation fuel at a remote airstrip.
Inquiries discovered the national parks service was about to start aerial shooting cattle, the property of indigenous and white property owners.
A call from Member for Traeger Robbie Katter to the Environment Minister’s office was all it took to shake them down.
The Minister’s office denied any cattle were to be shot and that the helicopter was being used to show traditional owners their property boundaries.
Subsequent calls by property owners to the local TO’s revealed no knowledge of any helicopter flights for them to inspect property.
Such are the day-to-day events being hosted across Cape York Peninsula by a deceitful state Labor Party hell-bent on turning the once prosperous Peninsula into a world heritage park at the request of its mortgagees, Rothschild Bank.
Voter fraud keeps these socialists in power.
Member for Hill Shane Knuth is warning the state government there would be serious consequences if there was blanket legislation put in place on the control of recreational feral pig hunting, under the pretence of the recently announced review of the Queensland’s Animal Care and Protection Act 2001.
Mr Knuth expressed deep concerns about the over-reach of government into the private domain and fears the review is due to the recent case of where a Toowoomba woman was fined almost $5000 and charged with one count of unlawfully allowing an animal to injure another animal, after her two dogs bit and held a feral pig.
“The RSPCA has long campaigned against recreational pig dog hunting and I have grave concerns they are using this review as a mask to again push this agenda,” Mr Knuth said.
“If the state government decides to use this review to crack down on recreational pig hunting in regional Queensland, they will have a revolt on their hands and entire regional communities will be in uproar.
“It amazes me that the RSPCA would rather protect feral pigs then our native wildlife including emus, cassowaries and turtles.
“Not only do they pose a threat to our native animals, but they spread disease and weeds, devastate crops, and cause massive soil degradation to our creeks and river systems.
“Recreational pig hunters are the last line of defence against an explosion in feral pig numbers, which would see widespread destruction of our farming industry and native flora and fauna.
“The state government should thank recreational pig hunters for controlling feral pigs in their own time and expense, rather than even considering changing the Act to penalise this valuable community service.”
Mr Knuth said the Queensland Government’s own website stated there were up to 24 million feral pigs in Australia and that they were among Queensland’s most widespread and damaging pest.
As part of the review 1080 baiting, transporting leashed dogs in the back of utes and making it law for vets to report animal welfare concerns will be assessed.
Community consultation for the review of the Animal Car and Protection Act 2001 is currently under way until midnight Friday, May 21.
“I urge all rural and regional Queenslanders to voice their concerns about any proposed changes to the Act which may restrict recreational pig dog hunting for the control of feral pests,” Mr Knuth said.
Last week Minister for Agricultural Industry Development and Fisheries and Minister for Rural Communities Mark Furner called for Queenslanders to submit their views in response to the Palaszczuk Government’s major animal welfare law review.
The Minister said, in response to evolved “community expectations (on) animal welfare”, Labor wanted feedback on:
- Mandatory reporting by veterinary professionals of animal welfare concerns;
- Prohibited events, regulated surgical procedures and offence exemptions;
- The use of baits and traps;
- Restraining dogs in open utility vehicles and trucks;
- The use of animals in science;
- Inspector powers and arrangements for externally appointed inspectors;
- The management of animals seized during animal welfare investigations; and
- Penalties for animal cruelty.
Queenslanders can submit their views up to Friday, May 21, 2021, and should visit https://daf.engagementhub.com.au/animal-welfare to complete the survey or submit a written response.

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.
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 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.
“There are about 102.7 million farm animals in the country so Mrs Neil’s 850 million animals, unless she counted cane toads and rabbits, is just like most of their propaganda, deliberate lies.”

The Labor Party’s decades-long, regional culture busting offensive stepped up a notch last week when the state government closed down sporting events and large rodeos in rural areas allegedly due to Covid restrictions.
It is quite acceptable for 50,000 people in Labor’s spoilt homeland to attend a Brisbane football match but any event attracting more than 1500 spectators in regional Queensland will be shut down by an urbane Premier and her boss, Chief Health Officer Jeanette Young.
Ridiculous conditions such as having a toilet for every 20 spectators and having them cleaned every half hour or to ban camping for out-of-town competitors is not economically feasible for volunteer sporting bodies.
Australia’s second largest annual rodeo held at Mareeba has been cancelled for the second year in a row followed by the hallmark Cape York rodeo and races held at Laura every June, then Weipa, Bamaga and the outstanding Mt Carbine event held every August.
The enormous financial benefits local communities will lose from these events will have a long-lasting impact. Never mind top level rodeo competitors and camp drafters with valuable horses or stock contractors with special rodeo cattle who will have to turn out their animals.
By the time rodeos kick off again much of this expertise and special animals will be gone and perhaps not ever regained.
While the ALP has always held Far North Queensland in contempt, their culture busting warfare started by the Goss government against northerners and the sparse rural Queensland population has taken another devastating turn.
These community events are run by volunteers and committees are finding it harder to attract workers, some of whom dedicate weeks of their time and expertise to create spectacular events. The cancellation of these community gatherings has broken the morale of rural districts particularly in some Aboriginal communities.
Rural people are even more disillusioned by the inaction and agreement of the Liberal National Party to the ALP’s ideological sanctions on community events naturally applauded by their socialist partners in crime such as Animals Australia, the World Wildlife Fund, Greens and their agnostic ilk.
After two years of inaction it is doubtful some committees will restart should the United Nations planned, influenza epidemic restrictions ever be lifted.
WHO, in conjunction with vaccine manufacturing companies and compliant governments world-wide, plans to continue annual Covid vaccinations provided sufficient numbers of the population survive after the first experimental jab.
If regional communities want to remain afloat perhaps it is time for civil disobedience such as we have seen in Victoria against unconscionable and unnecessary Covid lockdowns of healthy people.
Run the events and let the Covid cops act if they will. We outnumber the ALP Marxists 1000 to one.
As we have reported the Communist Premier Dangerous Dan got what was coming and ended up in hospital badly injured after a well-deserved bashing.
KAP Leader and Federal Member for Kennedy Bob Katter is furious yet another ‘greenie’ animal activist group has been caught offering payments to live export workers to capture footage of animals in a ‘bad light’, saying they are trying to institutionalise antagonism at the expense of the animals.
It is reported that the Department of Agriculture has begun an official investigation on Animals Australia over the allegations of offering workers as much as three months’ worth of wages in exchange for obtaining distressing footage.
“These people are trying to institutionalise antagonism; you have got to call this for what it is. We are investigating reports where people have created a horror story so they can get paid by the ‘greenies’ – and we’ve got two cases now with a reasonable chance of proving this,” Mr Katter said.
“Once again the Government can license these people to go on the boats and that person is there to ensure sanitary and reasonable conditions on these boats.
“99% of them are excellent 99% of the time, but they keep searching for the 1%.
“At the end of the day the only ‘green’ most greenies adore is the colour of the $100 bill, and in this instance, it’s at the expense of the animals’ welfare,” Mr Katter said.
Home-grown farm terrorists have produced a website map of nearly every Australian farming property ostensibly to incite farm invasions and terrorist activities in a campaign to shut down agriculture in all regional areas.
Ringleaders include Chris Delforce of Aussie Maps, Lyn White, Animals Australia, Mimi Bekhechi, PETA Campaigns Advisor.
These anarchists have thousands of dim-witted followers who finance the sabotage of piggeries, feedlots, poultry farms, grazing properties, abattoirs, livestock transport, horse races, rodeos, camp drafts and pony clubs.
Notably all three ringleaders and most of their followers are vegans and due to their diet, have acute trace element deficiencies which usually leave the victim with mental issues often causing severe schizophrenia and delusionary behaviour.
The federal Agriculture Minister David Littleproud has slammed the online map and jumped on the farm invasions calling for each group’s charity status to be withdrawn, in an effort to starve the groups of funds.
Farmers on social media have demanded the terrorists to be prosecuted under federal terrorism laws for attempting to destroy or contaminate public food supplies.
Meanwhile investigators have discovered Animals Australia has again been caught paying bribes to animal workers to deliberately harm animals at abattoirs or on board livestock ships while being filmed.
The fake footage is then supplied to the conspiratorial ABC for viewing by a gullible public.
The Greens Party should be included in any prosecutions of the terrorists for giving the groups political support.
Cairns News supports the prosecution of these farm terrorists under counter-terrorism laws. Farmers are urged to make a complaint to the Federal Police or ring the NATIONAL SECURITY HOTLINE 1800 123 400
The Attorney General’s website states:
‘It is an offence to counsel, promote, encourage or urge the doing of a terrorist act or the commission of a terrorism offence where the person intentionally engages in the conduct reckless as to whether another person will engage in a terrorist act or commit a terrorism offence.
If found guilty of advocating terrorism, a person could face up to five years imprisonment.’
KAP State Member for Hill Shane Knuth has again called for the State Government to ‘get real’ on crocodile management following the release of the 2017 Queensland Crocodile Management Update.
“Today’s announcement reaffirms there is a croc issue in North Queensland,’’ Mr Knuth said.
“The Government is reluctant to make the tough decisions because keeping southern votes is more important to them than protecting the life and livelihood of North Queenslanders.”
The Government’s update showed a spike in the number of crocodile sightings, jumping to 684 in 2017 compared to 378 in 2016 and just 176 in 2010.
“This is triple the sightings reported from seven years ago and an 80% increase in sightings from 2016,’’ he said.
“Those are extraordinary numbers and any sane person would argue it represents a large increase in crocodile numbers. Most people I speak to in the region tell me they don’t even bother reporting sightings anymore as nothing gets done, so that increase is only the tip of the iceberg.’’
Mr Knuth said most North Queenslanders were sick and tired of the glossy, political speak from the Government and Minister Enoch’s assertion ‘the Government is confident that Queensland’s approach to crocodile management is sound.’
“Obviously the reality is the exact opposite,” Mr Knuth said.
“When we have tourism bodies such as TTNQ and TPDD warning of the effects on the tourism industry because of increased activity of crocodiles and the Government’s own report showing staggering increases in sightings, it begs the question – why isn’t the Government acting?”
He said the provision of funding for drones to Surf Life Saving Queensland was a welcome addition to the organisation, but is not the solution to crocodile management or reducing the instances of sightings and beach closures.
“It is great for SLSQ to have access to this technology, but it doesn’t solve the root of the problem,” Mr Knuth said.
“We shouldn’t accept the increasing number of beach closures or beach sightings, as crocs shouldn’t be there in the first place. A zero tolerance policy regarding crocodiles on our beaches and in surrounding waterways, will drastically reduce the threat and allow our life savers to use this technology more effectively in patrolling stretches of beach not normally patrolled.’’

The farming industry’s beloved Liberal National Party is about to betray them again when Liberal MP Susan Ley will today introduce a private member’s bill into the Lower House that would ban live sheep exports to the Middle East during the northern hemisphere summer months in 2019 and close the sector down entirely in five years.
The last major double-cross for agriculture by the Liberals was in 1999 when PM John Howard introduced the Environment and Biosecurity Conservation Act which was the key for the states to introduce severe vegetation management laws.
How much more government intervention the industry can take is anyone’s guess but soon over-regulation will choke all primary industry to a standstill regardless of the political hue in Canberra.
The last bastion of neo-liberalism, the National Farmers Federation and Meat and Livestock Australia have committed their final Judas act by rolling over whenever pressure is applied by activists.
The traitorous ABC troll responsible for shutting down the live cattle export industry based on false and misleading television footage of Indonesian-bred cattle being mistreated by bribed abattoir workers is Susan Ferguson.
Coincidentally she is the wife of Q&A presenter and ALP sycophant Tony Jones.
Ferguson and the Animals Australia snake Lyn White aided and abetted by the ABC shut down the live cattle export trade overnight in 2011.
It is on the record these misguided, athiest animal rights activists indirectly caused a number of suicides across the agricultural sector.
As a consequence a group of cattle producers is suing the Federal Government for $600 million in compensation after live exports to Indonesia were banned by the Gillard administration.
Now it seems the trendsetters of the left division in the Liberal Party have joined in to support the Liberal backbencher’s anti-export bill.
Shadow Agriculture Minister Joel Fitzgibbon said Labor will lock in its support for what will be known as the Live Sheep Long Haul Export Prohibition Bill.
Livestock producers should be aware these fifth-columnists won’t stop with sheep. Those opposed to live export are rounding up their forces right now to shut down cattle exports. http://www.animalsaustralia.org/
These pagans believe animal rights take precedence over human lives in a similar fashion to the Queensland Labor Party and it seems the Liberals who continue to allow tourists and North Queensland inhabitants be torn apart by monstrous crocodiles.
The sheep meat industry and producers had better take a strong stand instead of simply rolling over as normal. If they leave it to the producer bodies they might as well hand the farm keys to the Chinese now.
What will their starving, urbanised grandchildren say?

The Queensland Police Service, under pressure from the Labor Party is attempting to crucify a 69 year old Cairns resident, Errol Copley, for catching a 3 metre crocodile on a 68lb mackerel fishing line. The croc eventually died.
Wildlife officers from the Environment Department came across the dead croc when looking for ‘illegal’ fish nets in a creek running through Mr Copley’s farm at Deeral, south of Cairns
The officers set up a covert camera which caught Mr Copley disposing of the dead croc on January 18.
He was subsequently fined $500 in the Cairns Magistrates Court.
Mr Copley said he had no intention of catching such a large croc on a set, light line but due to its short length the croc was unable to return to the water after the hook pierced the gut wall and lodged in the reptile’s heart.
The semi-retired cane farmer and commercial fisherman removes mangrove shoots on mud flats near the Cairns Esplanade as a part-time job.
Police want to make an example of Mr Copley by dragging him back to the Magistrates Court arguing his original $500 fine and no conviction would not deter farmers from slaughtering crocs.
Police and the Labor Party’s environment department want the fine increased to $7000.
Herein lies Mr Copley’s defence.
Ever since former Premier Peter Beattie in 2001 unlawfully altered the Queensland Constitution by copyrighting Acts of Parliament to himself including the Public Service Act and removing the Queen, public servants are now responsible only to political party corporations.
Police, employed by the corporation and held to the Public Service Act since then have been unlawfully operating as judge, jury and executioner. Demanding any penalty is unlawful.
A Magistrate sitting in an unconstitutional court can determine the amount of a fine however Mr Copley would be foolish if he paid it.
The corporate State Labor government and its public servants are so far out of touch they have no idea how many crocs have been killed over the past decade by fed-up farmers, fishermen, Aborigines and tourists.
Anecdotal evidence would suggest many hundreds of crocs are killed each year across the north yet their numbers have exploded in places where the dangerous saurians have never been seen before.
Cairns News encourages farmers to rid the rivers of ferocious salt water crocodiles by whatever means possible.
The police allege Mr Copley’s crime was serious because the death occurred “over a prolonged period” and taking the carcass exasperated the offence.
Mr Copley said he removed the dead croc and performed an autopsy so he could get his hook back.
Why would he leave a dead croc in a waterway to pollute the water?
Well done Mr Copley you have performed an honourable public safety service. – Cairns News editorial board.
