The facts behind Aboriginal recognition and Clinton’s insidious influence over indigenous land owners claiming 60 per cent of Australian land area
from Gil May
Why have Australian governments tipped money into Hillary Clinton’s Clinton Foundation helping to kill our coal industry? That it gave Julia Gillard a job and effectively a platform to continually spruik Hillary Clinton for president shows just how this very dodgy Foundation works.
The Australian taxpayer shovelled at least $88 million into the Clinton Foundation and associated entities from 2006 to 2014, reaching a peak of $10.3 million in 2012-13, Gillard’s last year in office.
On the Clinton Foundation website, AusAID and the Commonwealth of Australia score separate entries in the $10 million-plus group of donors, one rung up from American teacher unions.
In 2009-10 Kevin Rudd handed over another $10 million to the foundation for climate research, part of $300 million he squandered on a Global Carbon Capture and Storage Institute.
Gillard also donated $300 million of our money to the Clinton-affiliated Global Partnership for Education.
Lo and behold, she became chairman in 2014 and has been actively promoting Clinton as president ever since — in a campaign video last December slamming Trump, in opeds trumpeting the next woman president and in appearances with Clinton spruiking girls’ education.
The Abbott government topped up the left-wing organisation’s coffers with another $140 million in 2014, bringing total Australian largesse to $460 million, according to a press release from Foreign Minister Julie Bishop.
And yet, apart from the beautiful friendship with Gillard, what did Australia get from the Clintons for all that cash?
A whole lot of trouble is what.
Wikileaks emails released at the time shows that Australian green groups have been secretly funded to destroy our coal industry by environmental activists connected to the Clinton campaign.
The email account of Clinton’s campaign chairman John Podesta reveals extraordinary details of the sabotage of the $16 billion Adani coalmine in Queensland, which has damaged Australia’s national interest and denied cheap electricity to millions of poor Indians.
Last August John Hepburn, former Greenpeace activist and founder of Australian anti-coal group the Sunrise Project, sent a crowing email to his American paymasters, the Sandler Foundation, which is also a major donor to the Clinton Foundation. (Founder Herb Sandler and mate George Soros funded another Clinton-aligned progressive group, the Centre for American Progress, previously chaired by Podesta.)
“The Adani Carmichael mine and the whole Galilee Basin fossil fuel industrial complex is in its death throes,” Hepburn wrote in the email forwarded to Podesta.
“I am going to buy a few bottles of bubbly for a celebration with the (Environmental Defenders Office) legal team, our colleagues at GetUp, Greenpeace, 350.org, ECF, Australian Youth Climate Coalition, Mackay Conservation Group, Market Forces and the brilliant and tireless Sunrise team.”
In another email forwarded to Podesta, Hepburn panics about a then Abbott government inquiry into environmental charities and discusses hiding Sunrise’s sources of funding to safeguard its charitable tax status.
Hepburn boasts about the latest legal blow to Adani, when the Federal Court overturned its approval and the Commonwealth Bank quit the project.
In it he now wants to “escalate the campaign towards the other 3 big Australian banks”.
And he mocks miners who “try to claim that there is some kind of foreign-funded and tightly orchestrated conspiracy to systematically destroy the Australian coal industry. (I seriously don’t know where they get these wacky ideas from!)”
The Break-up of Australia: The Real Agenda behind Aboriginal Recognition.
As if it’s not bad enough that foreign-funded activists are meddling with our largest export earner, Podesta’s emails also detail their insidious influence on indigenous land owners who blocked the Adani mine using powerful native title rights.
This alliance of green groups with native title owners is a frightening development detailed in a new book by historian Keith Windschuttle, The Break-up of Australia: The Real Agenda behind Aboriginal Recognition.
He reveals the imminent expansion of native title claims, either approved or quietly being processed, stretch across a whopping 60 per cent of the Australian continent, an area twice the size of Western Europe.
Already 6000sq km of the Kidman cattle empire in the Kimberley has been given, via native title, to green activists to be converted from productive cattle country to a wildlife conservation area.
“In return, the Yulumbu people get a paltry $50,000 a year royalty,” Windschuttle writes.
“As a flora and fauna sanctuary it is economically defunct for the foreseeable future.”
At worst, writes Windschuttle, the mooted referendum for indigenous constitutional recognition, proposed by Gillard in 2012, could pave the way for a separate Aboriginal state on native title land, funded by taxation, royalties and lease payments — passive welfare in another guise.
At the very least, the alliance between foreign-funded green groups and indigenous owners gives environmentalists the opportunity to take whole swathes of Australia out of the productive economy and shut down industries they don’t like, from coal mines in Queensland to cattle farms in Western Australia.
Thanks for nothing, Hillary and Julia.
As the Clinton Fund is now under investigation in the US, what has the Australian government done to recover our money?
Many people worked hard to pay in taxes, that would have gone a long way to building new dams for our drought stricken farmers or new hospitals.

A civilian in Cairns carrying a military-styled replica rifle was detained after a dumb member of the public complained to police this week.
The officers charged the man for carrying a replica in public although it was inoperable and not a real firearm.
What would today’s paramilitary police have done 40 years ago when Army cadets between the ages of 14 and 18 carried home from their school units SMLE .303 rifles that could be fired if the cadet had any ammo.
I remember when I was at school in the army cadets and was a member of the shooting team. In the 1960’s, 70’s and 80’s there was no paranoia about guns as we have now.
I would carry home a SMLE .303 from the school armoury on the bus ready to go on bivouac for the weekend at Greenbank or Canungra army training reserves.
People remembered then it was guns that kept the Japanese army from invading the north through New Guinea. The mischievous media today aided by the Labor and Liberal parties have demonised guns to the extent that they make it a great big deal if a house is raided and guns are found. Guns take precedent over dangerous drugs according to the media.
We can thank God there are still a few million unregistered guns in existence around the country because the only thing separating runaway government and citizens is guns.
When the trouble starts I would not like to be a member of the media or ALP or Liberal politician.
Has any Labor politician ever seen a gun fire of its own volition? No and they never will. It takes two to tango Mrs Premier.
When guns are outlawed only outlaws will have them!

The Labor Member for Cook, Cynthia Lui, from Yam Island in the Torres Strait, is urging northern recreational anglers to record their catches.
In the Cairns Post ‘Household Fish Quiz’ Cynthia is asking weekend fishermen to make and send these records to the Fisheries Department so they can collate the numbers and species being landed.
Any fisherman who falls for this entrapment would be a complete fool.
By hook, line or sinker Cynthia’s carefully woven spider web is enticing you to tell big brother about your catch so the Marxists of the State Labor Government can introduce much tougher legislation to regulate amateur and sports fishermen.
Look at what the Labor Government has just done to the professional fishing fleet.
The hard pressed fishermen of the local fleet have been forced to spend thousands to install GPS devices which record their vessel’s every movement in real time even if crossing a ‘Green’ area to get to regulated fishing grounds.
The Department of Agriculture and Fisheries intends to make fishmeal of those few struggling commercial fishermen left in the north.
Up and up will go the cost of ‘fishing licences’ (and fish) and soon you will need a licence to buy a rod or hook.
We urge all fishermen, commercial or amateur to revolt against the fascist Queensland Government. There is not a court of competent jurisdiction in Australia.
Read senator-in-exile Rod Culleton’s foray into the UK court system which has systematically overturned any authority of an Australian court which functions under the fictitious ‘Queen of Australia.’
Don’t fall for it Queensland fishermen. Never ever vote for the communists of the ALP! – contributed by a recreational fisherman
Letter to the Editor
Billions of your dollars given away overseas for many decades where it is wasted on problems others created or used to buy other countries armaments – what for: This is Australia we need dams to protect us in droughts. We could have been drought proofed with many storage dams – instead politicians big-note themselves giving our hard earned money away damaging our country by deliberate neglect – our urgent needs are treated as unimportant second class. They are working against Australia’s needs, judge them by what they do. We do not have huge dams across Australia because they wasted our money.
Our farmers cannot continue, they are hurt and broken beyond belief, they have struggled for many decades despite government contempt – Low quality foreign food is on the way. Governments send ‘guess-perts’ who have no idea of farming to give bad advice — just another contempt.
There have been numerous investigated press reports of people waiting and dying trying to get medical treatment, because they gave your money away to cover other countries incompetent management – they are not our problem. We need new hospitals, schools, roads and railways but they are not being built because they treated us with contempt giving our money away.
We are in urgent need of new coal fired power stations, soon we will be unable to afford what little electricity is available, what then? Other countries signed the Paris Accord have or are building 3,534 coal Power Stations many using our coal. We have no new Power Stations planned, why – again we are being treated like the fools we have been by electing politicians who waste our money and neglect our urgent future needs for your children’s future.
Everyone, go and ask your local candidates to give you a written guarantee they will stop overseas aid and give Australia Aid, write/phone to editors and ask them to please support Australia and publish each candidates signed statement. Dear Editors how about your political impartiality – make Australia’s needs and our future your goal too. Create the biggest political fight ever seen for Australia’s future – it may be too late next time: Already too many broken futures, homes, families and suicides – no more – give us hope and a future to aspire too.

The Labor Party never learns. Again Far Northern voters have been treated as second-class citizens by Labor dropping in a senate candidate from the Gold Coast.
Nita Green and her wife Lacey have relocated to Cairns, joining the Labor Lower House do-drop-in candidate Elida Faith, much to the delight of Cairns Post reporter Chris Calcino who already has claimed a senate victory for Green.
It is understood Green has strong union support not for being a vocal advocate of same-sex marriage or the killing of unborn babies, because she is a union hack and will do their bidding in the senate if elected.
Cairns News has exposed wide-spread vote fraud which the ALP has orchestrated for 20 years or more. (https://wp.me/p2dFb5-2RR)
Investigations by Vote Australia have revealed the same-sex marriage plebiscite result was severely skewed by fraud after the Australian Bureau of Statistics admitted it found 248,000 fictitious names on the electoral roll.
The ABS did not pass on these bogus names to the AEC.
Vote Australia spokesman Lex Stewart said the real plebiscite result was ‘no’ in a similar proportion to the ‘yes’ vote.
Green’s support will be shored up by trade union rent-a-vote unless the Prime Minister forces the Australian Electoral Commission to clean up the roll and introduce ID provisions requiring voters to prove their identity when registering to vote at a polling booth.
The AEC reported 18,000 voters who voted more than once at the last federal election.
Postal voting ID requirements also should be strengthened, Mr Stewart added.
The Prime Minister has been warned by Vote Australia that the Liberal Party will be swamped by bogus voters in all marginal seats such as Herbert, which was stolen by the ALP at the last election by just 37 votes.
The House Standing Committee on Agriculture and Water Resources today launched a new inquiry(Dec 7) into the impact on the agricultural sector of vegetation and land management policies, regulations and restrictions, and called for submissions.
The Committee’s Chairman, Rick Wilson MP, acknowledged that the impact of land management and vegetation policies can be significant on the agricultural sector.
“Bushfires, expanding land use, and hazard management can dictate the future of regional, rural and remote land areas. The Committee’s inquiry into these issues is timely, given the current and impending natural disaster probability”.
The Committee will be inquiring into these impacts, with particular regard to:
- Past and current practices of land and vegetation management by the agricultural sector and regional industries;
- The science behind activities such as back burning, clearing and rehabilitation;
- The economic impact of vegetation and land management policies, regulations and restrictions;
- The impact of severe fires on the agricultural landscape, agricultural production and industry in regional, rural and remote areas;
- Factors that contribute to fire risk in regional, rural and remote areas; and
- The role the agricultural sector has in working with emergency services and forestry management officials in managing fire risk.
The Committee will be accepting submissions until Friday 25 January 2019.

State KAP Leader Robbie Katter has called on the Queensland Attorney-General to refer Premier Annastacia Palaszczuk to the Director of Public Prosecutions over her sacking of KAP staff last month.
Mr Katter’s calls preceded news that Labor had this week used its numbers in Parliament to vote down an LNP motion that would see a special committee established to investigate the Premier’s behaviour.
Mr Katter said the objectivity of the Ethics Committee that the Premier had been referred to had huge questions around it.
“Both major parties are compromised in this process, but particularly the Labor Party as each Labor MP on the Committee will be investigating their boss,” Mr Katter said.
“We’d be naïve to think that they won’t have that in the back of their mind when making recommendations.
“It’s vitally important that the Ethics Committee seeks impartial and independent advice from experts about the case.
“The CCC has said the Premier has breached the Criminal Code – if that doesn’t require significant punishment under our parliamentary standards I don’t know what does.”
A report handed down by the Queensland Crime and Corruption Commission on September 27 found there was “prime facie” evidence the Premier had breached the Criminal Code by using the funding she had granted the KAP as leverage to influence the minor party.
Mr Katter said there was now great public pressure on the government to uphold the integrity of the Queensland Parliament, and that it was vital for the Attorney-General Yvette D’Ath to step in.
“The Director of Public Prosecutions has two tests to consider when taking on a prosecution,” he said.
“1. Is there sufficient evidence? The head of the CCC has said that there is a prima facie breach of the Criminal Code.
“2. Does the public interest require prosecution? The individual occupying the highest office in the state has acted illegally. If this isn’t in the public interest, I’m not sure what is.”
Mr Katter said he was astounded by the fact the Premier had refused to stand aside while the matter was being investigated.
“We all make mistakes and we all must be held accountable for those mistakes; if the same level of standards were being applied to the Premier now as she had applied to some of those in her Cabinet, she would have stood down,” he said.
“To me, that refusal is the height of arrogance and suggests that in our Parliament, some people can get away with things while others can’t.
“Unfortunately for the State Government, I don’t think Queenslanders are very accepting of that sentiment.”
Walter calls for supporters to attend the court
After losing his wife and property, then being jailed for a month in 2017, former policeman and Constitutional analyst David Walter has struck back, filing a claim in the Supreme Court against the Queensland Premier.
A hearing to strike out Walter’s application under the Uniform Civil Procedure Rules 1999 by solicitor Paul Andrew Lack for Premier Annastacia Palaszczuk has been set down for October 12, 2018 in the Cairns Courthouse.
Walter was bankrupted by the Mackay City Council and other regional councils allegedly for advising ratepayers not to pay council rates.
He said he had made two requests to the Premier to have the matter settled out of court, but she had refused.
In 2017 he was unlawfully bankrupted by four shire councils as a non-party to actions taken by the councils against ratepayers for refusing to pay rates. In what was a first ever action of this nature, Walter experienced and exposed judicial and political corruption on a scale not ever seen in Queensland.
In his deposition Walter states private citizens are excluded from any criminal or civil legal actions by the ‘State Government.’
“Any property be it real or ready money Legal tender of the Commonwealth Pounds, shillings and pence, real property land or any private property held in any private Constructive Trust of any private person which includes Her Majesty, Queen Elizabeth 2 in their will and testament for their heirs and assigns, is protected under the Common Law of the Commonwealth of Australia (UK) as held to Crimes Act 1914 and the ASIO Act of 1914 from any taking and use for any business purposes of a private person themselves the Members of the Registered Political Parties in the Commonwealth of Australia Act (UK), must be by way of signed Contracts by all parties involved and the property be it Money Legal tender of the Commonwealth or Real or Personal Property by way of acquisition only,” Walter deposed.
“Any acquisition of property by the Members of the Registered Political Parties are held to Paragraph 51 (xxxi) of the Commonwealth of Australia Constitution Act (UK):
acquisition of property has the same meaning as in paragraph 51(xxxi) of the Constitution.
“Section 33 binds the Crown in the right of the Commonwealth, as the Crown is represented by the Constitutional Sovereign Her Majesty the QUEEN Elizabeth 2, in the Constitutions of the Six former Colonies those Constitutions are held to Parliaments of the (UK) – as members of the House of Commons as held to Common Laws of England, not being Members of Registered Political Parties or a MP in a signed De Facto Relationship with either John Howard or Peter Beattie both private persons an subjects of the Crown in the Preamble, the Deed of the Commonwealth of Australia Constitution Act (UK).
“As the Crown, being a private person Elizabeth 2, the Crown herself cannot be liable to pay any pecuniary penalties in Australian Currency $AUSD a digital Currency only, by way of a fine under Australian Law.
“Nor can Her Majesty the Queen be imprisoned for any Statutory Offence of the Australian Parliaments commencing 1988, by any Judicial Officer (Justice or Magistrate) in any Australian Court on the land of the Crown held to Common Law of England as is every other person of the Commonwealth including the Queen herself.
“Therefore any person being a subject of the Crown, imprisoned in Queensland, under the statutory Laws of Private persons, Members of Registered Political Parties, in unsigned and dated and sealed Judgements signed by a employee of (the “State”) a State of a Clerk of any Queensland Courts or person holding that authority and paid in Australian Currency, for their private services to the Parliamentary Members of the Parliament of Queensland Act No.80 of 2001. Reprint 1E © State of Queensland 2016, persons themselves inside the Constitution Act 1867 Qld, as those they have imprisoned or fined under digital Australian Law, must be immediately released as held to the Common Law of England as held to Church of England and the Holy See.”
David Walter has asked for supporters to turn up at the Cairns hearing to ensure a repeat of his incarceration by a wayward Magistrate does not occur again.
