Brits want a ‘no deal’ Brexit departure or threaten revolution

Oliver Cromwell reincarnated

from Neon Nettle

Yellow vest activists in the UK took to the streets of London on Friday protesting for ‘a clean exit’ from the European Union, according to reports. The group expressed mistrust in politicians and British Prime minister Theresa May, who recently gained the confidence vote despite the escalating chaos around Brexit.

One activist, who spoke to Sputnik News, said they voted Brexit because they wanted to reclaim control of their own country. “We don’t want to be part of the federal European superstate that’s going to erode our rights and take away democracy.”

Brits demand a ‘no deal’ Brexit departure or there will be a revolution. “We are not Europeans”  the protesters yelled!

“This is Britain. We are not European.

“We have never been European. This is our land, and we are taking it back.”

“If the political class doesn’t like it, they will see a revolution as they’ve never seen before. It is time to take up the spirit of Oliver Cromwell, rise and reclaim what’s rightfully ours.”

The activists, inspired by the recent “gilet jaunes” uprising in France, protested outside Downing Street, Tower Bridge, Westminster Bridge, and London Bridge. The group warned about their determination to support Brexit among other causes.

“The yellow vests are just a start. This will spread out to the whole country,” an activist told Sputnik.

According to a named source in the UK’s armed forces, London has tasked troops with developing a plan to prevent an uprising if the country leaves the European Union without a deal.

“We don’t want the deal. Dump the deal: no deal Brexit but trading under World Trade Organization terms.”

Poland climatefest locked Australia into Paris Climate Accord

Letter to the editor

Dear Editor

An interesting bulletin concerning December’s climate conference in Poland

noted that “…Australia sent 46 bureaucrats agreeing to shut down the remnants

of domestic industry…”

I am sure people will be thrilled with that as official, but largely unannounced,

government “policy” (the bureaucrats won’t make the undertaking unless told to

by their governmental superiors).

We already know that many of our industries have been off-shored, but the use

of the word remnants is particularly galling given that governments and

candidates always waffle the jobs, jobs, jobs mantra at election time whilst in full

knowledge of  the fact that sufficient numbers of apprentices, managers, etc, have

never been trained, supposedly necessitating the importing of foreigners to do these tasks.

So we  know, then, who the jobs are for, for for!

Australia sent 46 climate changing bureaucrats to play God with the weather, which most people (except ALP politicians)know is always changing. This lot committed Australia to the dreadful Paris Climate Accord which the UN has cleverly designed to transfer whatever wealth we have left to them!

If this is not government dropping the ball, then “agreeing to shut down the remnants

of Australian industry” is an even worse insult and evidence, seemingly, that government

is not at all interested in creating opportunities for Australians.

Yes, NDIS jobs may have been moved to Geelong, but they are just pants-shiner jobs that

have been moved from somewhere else, and do not represent future export income

related to merchandise other countries might buy off us.

These jobs do not represent anything related to the usual catch-all phrase “Sustainable.”

And if “shutting down the remnants of Australian industry” is the future, then what, actually,

is the Future?

ALP still hates the bush by its rush to close rural training colleges

ALP suggests college infrastructure should be converted to camps for illegal immigrants

Milk does not originate in a bottle from Coles or Woolies Mr Furner!

from Viv Forbes

The enemies of the bush (resident in green-and-pleasant Brisbane) want to close the Queensland pastoral colleges in droughty Longreach and Emerald.

It’s time for the Feds to act – slash spending on the climate alarm and climate tourism industries and use the money to save these threatened colleges.

Students learning sheep husbandry at Longreach Pastoral College, est 1967. It and the Emerald College will be closed down by the Marxists of the ALP. The hopeless Minister for Agriculture, Mark Furner, a former senior union organiser and senator, knows nothing about the rural sector or from where his next meal will originate. Furner is a typical union hack, not unlike Bill Shorten who infest our parliaments just like termites in a nest or flies on a carcase. Pic -ABC

For too long tax payers have watched federal agencies like CSIRO waste money on climate models that do not work, on carbon accounting that is not needed, on never-ending climate jamborees, and on re-invention of “carbon farming”.

Our great pastoral industries need trade-skilled people with relevant academic knowledge. They do not need lectures from city academics in green uniforms who are often hostile to rural industry.

Agriculture Minister mark Furner, a former ALP senator, union organiser now farm eradicator, wants to shut down the State’s multimillion dollar rural training colleges and fill them up with Muslim refugees

Farming parents would prefer their taxes were spent on local colleges educating their sons and daughters in practical skills rather than sending them to the coast to learn how to smoke pot, drink beer, buy ice and follow the green religion.

Our rural food bowl is far more important to Australia than all the tax-supported climateers with their dodgy science, biased forecasts and green propaganda.

Editor:

The Marxist Queensland Labor Party intends to close the famous Longreach Pastoral College and the Emerald Agricultural College after receiving a negative report on the future of rural training from the notorious ALP stooge and socialist, Professor Peter Coaldrake. The dumb Minister Mark Furner sat on it until early December, hoping its release would get caught up in Christmas madness and pass unnoticed.

Furner further suggests the college buildings be used for accommodating illegal immigrants and refugees, including Muslims. This slap in the face for the hard-pressed rural sector struggling to find trained recruits after enduring years of drought comes from an totally urbanised, socialist, Marxist Labor Party Government which prefers to pass laws allowing doctors to kill unborn babies.

It also heralds the ALP plan to flood the country with unwanted and often subversive immigrants from Muslim countries, at the instruction of the United Nations.

The agricultural sector could die out completely which would suit the Labor traitors.

Katters Australian Party Queensland leader Robbie Katter has foreshadowed legislation to counter the ALP closure plan.

 

Australia in boots and all with climate racketeers at Poland conference

Liberal and Labor supported 46 emissaries now back home to spread climate scare stories while the absent US throws a party to celebrate fossil fuels

December 16, 2018

Negotiators from around the world struck an eleventh-hour deal Saturday, laying out rules to implement the Paris Agreement and keep the landmark 2015 climate accord intact.

But it wasn’t easy.

The two-week, drawn-out fight that included a rehashing of old battles and the introduction of new ones stretched late into the night here at the COP 24 UN climate conference in Katowice, Poland. The pitched battle hints at challenges to come in the global fight against climate change as the new world order continue to face a wave of political pressure that has put a strain on international cooperation.

15 December 2018, Poland, Katowice:  Australia sent 46 bureaucrats agreeing to shut down the remnants of domestic industry.  President Michal Kurtyka (M) of the UN Climate Change Conference COP24, and other participants of the climate summit are pleased about the decision of the compromise at the world climate summit.

“It has been a long road,” said Polish Energy State Secretary Michał Kurtyka, who served as President of the conference. “This deal hangs in fragile balance, we will all have to give in order to gain.

The issues on the table in Katowice were largely technical questions centering on accounting, finance and seemingly arcane word choices that signal how aggressively countries will cut their emissions. But geopolitics never lurked far from the surface, and the urgency of climate change never proved great enough to keep the politics from bubbling up and disrupting proceedings.

“People are pulling away at the edges of the multilateral system and you wonder whether or not it’s going to unravel further,” said Rachel Kyte, who headed the World Bank’s climate-change program and who now leads Sustainable Energy for All, before the final decision. “Is the beginning of something bigger? How do we cope with it?”

The potential for disruption was clear from the beginning. The U.S., the world’s biggest economy and second-largest emitter of greenhouse gases, promised to exit the Paris Agreement last year under President Trump’s direction. This left a void in leadership even as the U.S. officially remains in the talks until it’s eligible to withdraw in 2020. That void opened the door for others to rebel, particularly in places where climate change does not jive with the priorities of populist or authoritarian governments.

In a highly-publicized affair, the U.S. held an event promoting fossil fuels, during which a White House official argued that the country was injecting a dose of “reality” in the face of “alarmism” around climate change. The event won the support of Australia, whose ambassador for the environment joined the panel. And a senior administration official said that other countries had conveyed that they appreciate the U.S. perspective even if they don’t feel comfortable stating so publicly. “They don’t talk about it as much,” said a senior administration official. But, “there’s an appreciation for the realism.”

 

In another conflict, Brazil faced off against the rest of the world when it threatened to reject any deal because of language that would fix an accounting loophole that gives the country double credit for preserving forests in the Amazon. The rest of world protested, but Brazil refused to budge and in the final hours negotiators decided to punt the issue to a future conference.

One of the biggest clamors of the conference came as four oil producing countries, including the U.S, Russia and Saudi Arabia, questioned the validity of climate science and refused to recognize the legitimacy of a report from the IPCC, the UN’s climate science body, showing the effects of climate change if temperatures rise more than 1.5°C.

Changing geopolitics even hit in places where governments care deeply about the threat of climate change. The wave of populism in the European Union fractured the block, weakening its negotiating position. Alden Meyer, director of strategy and policy at the Union of Concerned Scientists and a longtime climate negotiations expert, cited political change in Italy, the ongoing Brexit fiasco and the weak positions of German Chancellor Angela Merkel and French President Emanuel Macron as contributing to the E.U.’s struggle to wrangle other countries. “There’s always some of these clashes, but it’s more acute here,” he says.

And then there’s the U.S. relationship with China, which is in disarray over ongoing trade issues. The two countries, while often at odds in previous negotiations, often served as mediators between developing and developed countries and helped broker key deals. “There was a capacity to be a convener, each of us,” says Todd Stern, who served as the chief U.S. negotiator under Obama, of the U.S. and China. “That’s not available right now.”

All of these disruptions helped push the talks long into overtime, with a mix of yawns and applause when Kurtyka finally called the conference to an end more than a day later than originally scheduled. The deal that resulted came as a relief: the multilateral approach to fighting climate change will live to see another day.

At the same time, the new agreement left much to be desired from nearly all parties. “I trust that whenever you found dissatisfaction in one part of the text, it was balanced with satisfaction in another,” said Kurtyka.

Perhaps more importantly, all but the most out-of-touch acknowledged that the deal leaves much work to be done if the world actually hopes to limit temperature rise to 1.5°C, a level that the new IPCC report shows could wipe some countries off the map and cause widespread devastation across the planet.

“Carbon emissions keep rising and rising,” Mohamed Nasheed, former president of the Maldives, told reporters before the deal was finalized. “All we seem to be doing is talking and talking and talking.”

As countries continue to wind through the difficult international negotiation process, the obvious answer to make up for the gap caused by political disruption lies outside of the political system. Indeed, some local governments, businesses and apolitical multilateral organizations are already trying to take charge.

For most of the two decades that the U.N. has held these meetings, talk has focused on how to make action on climate change happen at a nebulous point in the future. Now, in large part thanks to the Paris Agreement, that action has already begun. And, while the international system is doomed to be defined by the least common denominator, many cities, states and businesses have stepped up to the challenge. In the months leading up to this conference, the World Bank committed $200 billion in climate investments, a slew of businesses lobbied for market solutions to climate change and alliances of sub-national governments in Japan, Argentina and Mexico joined the U.S. in making commitments to fill the gap in their national governments’ efforts.

“To combat climate change we need much much more than government,” says Laurence Tubiana, CEO of the European Climate Foundation and a central framer of the Paris Agreement. “It’s not for state only. It’s for society.”

The only issue is that none of this is moving fast enough. The IPCC report shows that temperatures have already risen 1°C as a result of human activity and that figure will surpass 1.5°C as early as 2030 without a dramatic shift in direction. A lot of work is necessary to facilitate such a shift. And that’s going to be a huge challenge so long as political tensions persist.

Federal inquiry into Qld Labor’s iniquitous Vegetation Management Act

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.

Labor’s Lima Agreement betrayed Australia

Letter to the Editor

Dear Prime Minister,

 I write with concern and trepidation, with regard to the published “Lima Agreement” signed off on by Australia in 1975 by (the late) Labor senator and Foreign Affairs Minister Don Willesee and successive governments on both sides of the house have been complicit in betraying Australia. Yes betraying Australia, until we are at the point where our economy will implode. We have appeasers soothing over our questions and calling us nay-sayers.

(Television personality Mike Willesee is a son of Don Willesee-Editor)

ALP Foreign Affairs Minister Don Willesee signed the notorious Lima Agreement in 1975 which stripped Australia of its manufacturing ability and handed it to third world countries. Neither the ALP nor the Liberals have made any attempt since to repeal this treacherous law.

Well Winston Churchill once said, an appeaser is one who feeds the crocodile, hoping it will eat him last. How true.

Currently, I see no voter having any respect for politicians, you have shown yourselves to be self serving time servers. Yet again today we see and read of another tawdry episode by a politician.

But will they charge the national politician ? Will they  hell, no doubt he will be quietly given a promotion and hidden from sight.

PM, your whole rotten morass can sink no lower, the many folks I have spoken to just won’t waste their time even discussing politicians.

 It is easily seen now that Australia is slave to the UN, to Agenda 21(now 30) and the Lima Agreement.

 Thank you very much for selling out our great land, you are traitors all.

US citizens to cop gun magazine confiscations

Magazine confiscation starting in New Jersey. Similar events coming soon to a town near you. Queensland Labor Government starting with ammunition restrictions in 2019

(Natural News) A New Jersey law that makes it a felony to possess a gun magazine capable of holding over 10 rounds of ammunition is now active. This wildly unconstitutional law instantly criminalizes hundreds of thousands of New Jersey citizens who legally acquired normal capacity firearms magazines — which include 17-round pistol magazines and 30-round rifle magazines — as tools of self-defense against the very same violent criminals that are protected by the Democrats who passed the gun magazine ban.

Now, the New Jersey State Police have told Breitbart News they won’t rule out “house-to-house enforcement” of the new magazine ban, meaning they plan to conduct house-to-house arrests and gun magazine confiscations. These Nazi-style anti-gun operations will, of course, be carried out at gunpoint, further underscoring the entire purpose of the Second Amendment and the need for citizens to arm themselves with 30-round magazines to defend against government tyranny.

Australian governments want to take your guns under the pretext of the Port Arthur massacre scam

“Breitbart News contacted New Jersey State Police on Monday to ask how they planned to enforce the newly enacted ban,” reports Breitbart.com. “The NJ State Police refused to rule out house-to-house checks. Rather, they responded: ‘We do not discuss enforcement strategies.’”

The very reason citizens need 30-round magazines is because the government wants to use coercion and the threat of violence to take away their legally-acquired firearms and magazines. If citizens surrender 30-round magazines, the next step will be New Jersey banning all magazines, followed by the banning of all semi-automatic firearms. Almost overnight, citizens of New Jersey will find themselves living under an authoritarian regime of pure tyranny and lawlessness… with no means to defend themselves against the state, which will then have a monopoly on effective firearms.

This is a repeat of Nazi Germany, which disarmed the Jews before mass murdering three million of them. It’s so much easier to murder people, after all, when the government disarms them first. And anyone going along with the disarmament is signing their own death warrant.

The purpose of the magazine ban is to make sure citizens can’t shoot back when the authoritarian government comes to take ALL their guns

The entire purpose of the gun magazine ban, of course, is to make sure that innocent citizens are unable to shoot back when the government sends gun confiscation teams on door-to-door raids, gunning down citizens and taking their firearms by force. Anyone who knows history will immediately realize that New Jersey is walking down the path of Stalinist Russia or Hitler’s Germany, weaponizing the power of corrupt government to disarm the very people that government will later target for mass arrests and mass murder.

Have no illusions: The aim of all Leftists in government is the establish an authoritarian government regime that holds a monopoly over all firepower, ruling over disarmed citizens who are taxed to death, silenced by the tech giants and criminalized for seeking to defend their own nation against tyranny. This will be combined with open borders policies that flood the nation with violent criminal illegal aliens who will all be granted absolute legal immunity from their crimes, even while American citizens are arrested and imprisoned for merely exercising their Second Amendment rights.

Do the community a service-give your kids a gun for Christmas

Precious Police Commissioner like the Police Union president Ian Leavers hate guns; only police should be allowed to own one Ian says

Queensland’s police chief says a billboard suggesting people give each other guns for Christmas is abhorrent and should be taken down.

The billboard at Logan, south of Brisbane, features a gun wrapped in shiny Christmas paper, two images of Australia in the crosshairs, and asks: What’s under your tree this year?

Our kids are getting a gun each for Christmas – are yours? Commissioner Ian Stewart wants to ban free speech. Its time readers!

Police Commissioner Ian Stewart says there’s nothing illegal about the gun shop’s advertising, but it does not reflect what Australia stands for.

“I would like to see the billboard taken down. People who use firearms for their sport or work know where to go to purchase guns and I don’t think we need that type of advertising,” he has told ABC radio.

“The message that sends to me and to most people in the community would be quite abhorrent and against everything that’s really good about Australia.”

The billboard is for the same gun shop that erected another giant ad earlier this year, featuring a line of bullets, scaled in size, with the tag line: “Size does matter.”

Labor plans to abolish negative gearing will crash house market

Non-recourse lending needed urgently to curb banks

Plummeting house prices has KAP Leader and Federal Member for Kennedy Bob Katter slamming the banks saying it’s time we stepped in line with other countries and introduced non-recourse lending to prevent further torture to homeowners while the banks take a free ride, using their power to “drive over the top of us” and “crush us at their whim”.

Labor will crash the housing market when it removes negative gearing  for mums and dads

 Currently, Australia has recourse lending, while America (and most other countries) have non-recourse lending, which means the bank can only get the house back; they can’t get the debt back.

 “The borrower pays off $100k on their $500k house, he’s behind on his repayments, the bank sells it up for $300k, they get a tax write off of $100k, they have an insurance loan guarantee that pays off the other $100k. Meanwhile, the poor old once proud homeowner now has no house, has lost $100k and is $200k in debt – he’s a debt slave for the rest of his life,” Mr Katter said.

 “Undoubtedly we’d be one of three or four key players in securing the banking enquiry – we never made a call for it without reference to the overheated housing market.

 “There is an impending disaster – the average price of a house in Sydney, Newcastle and Wollongong is $800,000 and the average take home pay for a couple is around $80,000 – how are you going to service that debt?

 “KAP policy says that Australia must get in step with other countries. The bank knows better than a 23-year-old newly married apprentice and whether he and his wife can afford to pay $1000pw.

 “It may be argued the bank is more culpable than the borrower – in America there is non-recourse lending where the banks, as they should, share the loss.

 “Further, I am scared silly that the ALP actually intends to abolish negative gearing, people buying houses for investment will leave the market and housing prices will collapse even further, and I want people to know cold bloodedly there is a crashing down of housing values that will be precipitated if Labor proceeds with extraordinarily irresponsible action,” Mr Katter said.

 

Australia for sale? Already sold!

KAP Leader and Federal  Member for Kennedy Bob Katter slammed the Government on foreign ownership in Parliament yesterday asking if there will be a new regime to stop selling Australia, or is it business as usual, Australia for sale?

Tensions mounted as Mr Katter listed the major foreign owned or run companies, stating that free trade  means jobs exported, cheap labour imported.

Katter says there is not much left of Australia to sell. The LNP/ALP duopoly has already sold it. Will the last Aussie leaving switch off the solar/wind lights?

“The biggest farm in Australia ‘Van Diemen’s dairys’  is 0wned by China, the 2nd biggest ‘Cubbie’ owned by China, the biggest grain farms ‘Nicoletti’ owned by China, biggest farming aggregation ‘Kidmans’ controlled by China, the biggest of all, ‘Ord stage 2 & 3’ owned by China, Australia’s most strategic port, Darwin owned by China, Taxi Hire industry Uber  foreign owned, the car manufacturing, glass, textiles, petrol, whitegoods – all gone overseas,” Mr Katter said.

“What has free trade done for us? It gave away the entire coal seam gas reserves of this nation; $23 billion a year was given away. We gave it away for six cents a gigajoule and we bought it back for $16 a gigajoule. In fact, it is cheaper to buy Australian gas in Tokyo and bring it back to Australia than to actually buy it in Australia. That was a magnificent free-trade deal.

“We freed up the wool industry–oh, what a magical achievement; it is now costing the nation $16 billion a year. Ethanol: ‘Oh, we must have a level playing field; we must have a free market.’ So while Brazil produces ethanol and provides a $4 billion cross subsidy to its sugar industry, we’re ‘free trading’, so we import $23 billion worth of petrol every year instead of producing one litre of petrol of our own, which, of course, we could do tomorrow with ethanol.

“Oh, and we wiped out the entire manufacturing industry of Australia. The car industry alone was $25 million a year. Just in coal seam gas, wool, ethanol and motor vehicles, we have lost $40, $50, $60, $70 billion in just five items.

“Do we have a new regime that won’t continue to sell off Australia, or is it business as usual – Australia for sale?” Mr Katter said.
