A desperate LNP candidate for the federal seat of Kennedy and a senator have attacked sitting member Bob Katter with lies and innuendo, the whopper being that he does not support the Hells Gates’ dam he has fought to get built for years.
They belong to the LNP that supported Queensland Labor Premier Annastacia Palaszczuk’s extension of hated and unnecessary Covid mandates until October this year.
The same LNP at state and federal levels oversaw the states kill and maim tens of thousands of citizens with deadly mRNA Covid clot shots.
Then to cap it all off, Prime Minister Scott Morrison supported his communist mate and Victoria Premier Dangerous Dan Andrews when his megalomaniacal private cops shot and severely wounded a dozen Covid mandate protesters with large rubber bullets at the Shrine of Remembrance in Melbourne.
The federal ALP and unions also supported the entire Covid program.
This LNP mob just handed over Australia’s health sovereignty to transvestite and WHO Director General Tedros Adhanom Ghebreyesus, a former member of a Libyan terrorist group.
The LNP government has agreed, along with more than 100 other countries to hand over all health directives for any future pandemic to the WHO, delivering lockdowns or other police state measures for the UN to implement. Will they need UN troops?
Australia will have no say and when the planned 10 years of future pandemics start Tedros will shut down the economy.
United Australia Party chairman Clive Palmer, One Nation leader Pauline Hanson, firebrand independent federal MP Bob Katter and Liberal Democrats senate candidate Campbell Newman have partaken in Paul Murray’s Live Pub Test.
They passed with flying colours.
These figureheads are four of Australia’s most colourful figures and have gone head-to-head in Paul Murray Live’s The Pub Test which put them in front of a live audience in an unscripted and televised Q&A format.
United Australia Party chairman Clive Palmer, One Nation leader Pauline Hanson, firebrand independent federal MP Bob Katter and Liberal Democrats senate candidate Campbell Newman answered questions from voters in the forum hosted by Sky News Australia’s Paul Murray.
Following the debate and Q&A, Murray was joined for analysis by Sky News Queensland Editor Peter Gleeson, Courier Mail editor Chris Jones and Senator Amanda Stoker.
“I’m thrilled to be announcing our ‘Paul Murray Live Pub Test: The Mavericks’ episode,” Murray said.#
Cairns News strongly supports these independent party leaders being the best of a bad bunch. We would also add Riccardo Bosi to this group and urge readers to get this video to everybody they know. Under no circumstances vote for LNP, Labor or Greens.
Be careful of ‘independents’ read story in Cairns News about Climate 200 supported candidates.
Watch out for GetUp and voter fraud. There is a story coming.
Federal member for Kennedy Bob Katter has taken to the floor of Federal Parliament to voice the concerns of North Queensland’s farmers whose plight has been forgotten in the cost-of-living debate gripping the nation.
“Australian farmers have seen costs skyrocket – fertiliser, freight and packaging have nearly doubled in the past 12 months. Urgent action is required,” Mr Katter said.
“For example, medium sized banana farmers who provide work for 25-30 people face monthly bills of around half a million dollars. This equates to around $1.50 per kilo of bananas before the farmers have any return. Farmers receive about 20 cents less (around $1.30kg) but supermarkets charge consumers double (around $3kg).
“Farmers would actually save money if they did nothing but sit around and burn $5 dollar bills.”
The Katter’s Australian Party MHR called on the Federal Government to urgently act.
“Supermarkets must provide farmers with a minimum price guarantee that is higher than the cost of production,” he said.
“Supermarkets equally need to be accountable for the price increases that they charge Australians.
“We demand a strong Government that doesn’t provide a sugar hit to the Australian public.
“We demand a Government that provides real change to stop large multinational companies from continually taking advantage of our farmers and the Australian public.”
Joel Jammal journalist interviews MP Bob Katter, meets protesters and slams mandatory jab
A bypass road for the Kuranda Range is well into the planning stages by private means and has passed every test as a viable route from Mareeba to Cairns taking 20 minutes off the existing dangerous Kuranda Range track with its outdated, derelict, Barron River traffic bridge.
In spite of the garbage spewed forth by the Labor state member for Barron River and former ambulance attendant Craig Crawford, there would not be one house resumption , there would be no added traffic to Intake Road at Redlynch, no tunnels and it can be built in 18 months for $450 million.
This is $1.5 billion cheaper than Member for Kennedy Bob Katter’s ‘wobbly way’ to Edmonton and without heavy transport-inhibiting tunnels.
In a public tussle between Crawford and Bob Katter every bogey man possible has been dreamt up by poor Craig, in between drinks of course, believing houses will be bulldozed presumably with occupants intact and the job will take 15 years. Then he found two martians drinking at the bar under his house and discovered all his port and brandy had disappeared.
After a brawl with the slippery aliens, a somewhat bruised Craig called the ambos but they were too busy carting vaxx-damaged victims to the overflowing Cairns Base Hospital and told him to visit the local doctor.
He got his missus to drive him the few hundred metres but the clinic staff wouldn’t let him in because he hadn’t been jabbed.
Ah well back to Smithfield Tavern to top up his depleted supplies, nurse his bruises and lie-in-wait near his bar with a baseball bat for the martians to reappear.
Craig is moving his office from Smithfield away from the nearby ambulance station in case he is called to re-enlist as a driver to help replace the 600 ambos he and his Cabinet colleagues sacked because they won’t take the deadly jab. Nor will Craig – the Premier said he didn’t have to.
He is off to Redlynch to set up his new office, fortuitously near the shops and in case the martians come back, he can walk to the bottleo.
After Tablelands commuters threatened to lynch poor Craig last year over the poor state of the Kuranda Range Road and its 1000 daily, heavy vehicle movements, he promised the problem would soon be fixed.
He told ABC Radio he would place driver-less cars on the range and that would stop the cars and trucks from careering over the edge.
That didn’t go too well with many angry truckies thinking he was looking through the bottom of a brandy bottle while he was solving the problem.
Nevertheless now he is installing a system of stop and go lights along the length of the range road trying to stifle the traffic flow.
The cabling contract alone will cost $30 million and it’s anybody’s guess what the completed project will cost or if it will work.
Poor Craig, he wasted $30 million on the range road that was declared obsolete by the Main Roads Department in 2005. Those funds could have provided the necessary corridor for the proposed Reddicliffe Highway from Mareeba to the Cairns CBD.
If the state government had anything to do with the road construction then it would most likely take 20 years to build, one astute engineer quipped.
“We can build it in 18 months,” the engineer said.
Craig was being conservative probably for the first time in his life at 15 years.

This is a Cairns News exclusive feature on voter fraud in Australia and how it has changed governments by less than 5000 fraudulent votes cast at either a state or federal election and discusses the need for compulsory voting and the bona fides of the AEC
The introduction of voter identification at the next federal election has been hailed as long overdue by electoral systems analyst and engineer Mr Alexander Stewart.
Claims by the socialists of the Greens and the Labor Party that somehow not having ID at a polling booth would prevent Aborigines or Islanders from voting are “fanciful” at the very least Mr Stewart said.
Surprisingly federal member for Kennedy (NQ) Bob Katter has jumped in claiming the ID requirement is “racist” and will disenfranchise Aborigines. We are unsure how this fits with the bill but if indigenous people just like everybody else have to present ID at the door of the local pub or to enter any business premises under Covid regulations then surely the most responsible civic duty of all, voting, should be protected from fraud.
No doubt these claims have their genesis with the Labor Party which has long relied on wide-spread fraud at polling booths and captured postal votes to keep the party bankrolled and their snouts in the federal and state troughs.
Cairns News has covered numerous state and federal elections and published evidence of fraudulent entries on electoral rolls, bogus postal votes and of late the highly questionable Scytl electronic voting programs now used in Australia, particularly Queensland, which were used covertly to great effect in many American states to oust President Donald Trump.
To claim that the Liberal Party’s proposed ID requirements would disenfranchise anyone is laughable.
Almost every Aborigine or Islander in North Queensland and in most parts of Northern Australia carry a Medicare card and an Eftpos card without fail. Under the new laws either is acceptable ID to get a ballot paper.
Many Aborigines over 18 have a drivers licence either active or suspended and carry other means of ID such as Over 18 cards which would comply with the proposed law.
If an indigenous person does not have an Eftpos card then he or she would starve. They are carried on their person religiously. No Maccas, no grog without it. Their welfare payments are paid every fortnight straight into their bank accounts. Few carry large amounts of cash.
In some communities welfare payments are quarantined in part to prevent gambling, drug abuse and excessive alcohol consumption. The kids are supposed to be the beneficiary. Over 18’s carry their cards as a necessity.
Unfortunately the Bolshies of the Greens and Labor are so far removed from reality, isolated in ivory towers in Canberra and major cities and almost certainly have never seen or spoken to a real blackfella in a remote community.
For too long entrenched voter fraud has dogged any candidate outside of the two-party system said Mr Stewart, a former president of Australians for Honest Elections.
In a submission to the Joint Standing Committee on Electoral matters in 2019 he outlined how the fraud continued since at least 1983 and how fraud has been allowed to continue :
- by deficiencies in the Commonwealth Electoral Act that permit Vote Frauds
- by the inherently-flawed design of the Australian Electoral Commission model that was introduced in 1984. In my view, the experiment has failed and elections should be run by a subset of the Public Service, as occurred very well from 1901 to 1983.
- by the mismanagement of the AEC, for example in mismanaging pre-polling
- by the deficiencies in Electoral Rolls
- by the debasement of Parliament due to the Party Machines preselecting candidates for their compliance rather than their competence/expertise, and by then using Vote Frauds to instal their wrongly-chosen candidates
Does voter fraud occur?
3.1.1 “That the electoral system is open to manipulation is beyond question … Fraudulent enrolment is almost impossible to prevent.” (NSW Electoral Commissioners, Messrs R. Cundy and Ian Dickson, in the NSW Government Inquiry 1989)
3.1.2 “Electoral fraud, malpractice and errors are a common feature of the Australian electoral system,” Alex Howen, Metropolitan Vice-Pres of the NSW Liberal Party 11/9/1999
3.1.3 78% of several thousand people voted “Yes” on www.publicdebate.com.au in year 2001 to the question “Should a Royal Commission be held into Electoral Fraud?”
3.1.3 The Shepherdson Inquiry in Queensland found that ALP members had committed Vote Frauds in 1986, 1993 and 1996. This was a finding by a Judge, based on evidence
3.1.4 Dr Amy McGrath OAM has written several books about Vote Frauds. She first discovered Vote Frauds when she was a member of the ALP and was working during World War 2 in the Balmain branch of the Ironworkers’ Union, and was given a list of dead people’s names and told to go and vote in those names. She made 17 Submissions to the JSCEM from 1993 to 2014, and was largely ignored. Her books are:- (Page 2:-)
CHANGES to a farm worker Industrial Relations Award means that fruit pickers will now receive a guaranteed minimum wage but Federal Member for Kennedy, Bob Katter, says the farmers will bear the brunt of an increase in costs in the supermarket as a result.
“The decision by the Fair Work Commission to provide a minimum wage for farm workers is a good decision because it will encourage people to become farm workers and not have to get everyone from overseas.
“Having said that, cost structures have to be born by the farmers – they can’t pass it on.
“We have only two or three people that sell fruit and vegetables in Australia and combined they have over 75 percent of the market. They pay the farmers whatever they feel like paying the farmers.”
Mr Katter said that farm incomes from the supermarkets giants had barely changed in the last 30 years ago but the price of food to the consumer has skyrocketed more than 250 percent.
“The real problem here is that the farmers had their collective bargaining rights taken off them. For the workers, this is a good thing that they have got their bargaining rights, but the farmers don’t have their bargaining rights because the National Party deregulated most of their industries.
“So yes, the workers can and should be given a better go but the people who are going to be punished here are the farmers and the benefit to the consumer, is nil.
“There is a as much chance of the supermarket giants passing on that charge and giving it to the farmers as I have got of becoming a beetle rider from Booroola.
“So, Mr Government, give back to the farmers their right to collectively bargain. The workers have that right and they should have it and the farmers should have it.
“You took it off them and they’ve been screwed through the floor. There were 270,000 of them, now there is a 160,000 of them. What a cruelty. What a cruelty. And the Australian people are paying the price.
“All those changes, clearly, we know who profited by them. It wasn’t the worker. It wasn’t the consumer, and it most certainly wasn’t the farmer.”
James Cook University in Cairns leads the pack. Their precious academics don’t like peer reviews of their sometimes dodgy work. Never let the facts get in the way when appeasing governments for more and bigger grants.
A dark cloud hangs over the future of academic freedom of speech in Australia following the High Court’s ruling today against Great Barrier Reef expert Dr Peter Ridd, Katter’s Australian Party MPs have said.
The KAP which – alongside a variety of other supporters from across the country – have stood in solidarity with Dr Ridd as he took his former employer James Cook University (JCU) to court after being sacked in 2018, said the professor deserved to be applauded for his tenacity.
Hinchinbrook MP Nick Dametto said today’s decision by the High Court meant, by law, Dr Ridd was in breach of his of JCU work contract when he publicly raised quality assurance and trust concerns around fellow researchers’ works.
The ruling had nothing to do with Dr Ridd’s expertise on the GBR or the validity of his scientific views, he said.
Mr Dametto currently has a Bill before the Queensland Parliament seeking a full repeal of the Palaszczuk Labor Government’s Environmental Protection (Great Barrier Reef Protection Measures) and Other Legislation Amendment Act 2019.
This Bill, labelled as “farm-destroying” due to the onerous requirements it places on North and Central Queensland cane growers, was predicated on water quality research similar to that which was questioned by Dr Ridd.
Dr Ridd has long called for the establishment of an Office of Science Quality Assurance to question and monitor the validity of scientific research used to underpin government policy.
“We believe that, in the court of public opinion, Dr Ridd has been successful,” Mr Dametto said.
“As a scientist, academic and individual we believe he deserves to be applauded for putting everything on the line to fight for what he, and many others, believe in, which is the fundamental importance of freedom of speech and academic integrity.
“In the name of standing up for what he thought was morally right and just, Dr Ridd has sacrificed his job and potentially his career and reputation, but he has done this because he believed it was right to at least question the science.
“Few people understand the effects of sediment and nutrient run-off to the GBR better than Dr Ridd, and systemic quality assurance problems are still plaguing the way GBR ‘science’ is being used to affect modelling that drives government policy and public opinion.
“The gravest concern attached to today’s ruling is that it has the real potential to scare off anyone else who wants to raise their head out of the trenches to question not only the reef science institutions but also science across the board.”
Mr Dametto said that, without academic freedom, there was a potential to stifle the progression of science and send us back to a time of limited academic thinking not seen since the Dark Ages.
Kennedy MP Bob Katter said that the cases of Ridd and Pavlou made it quite obvious that there was no freedom of speech on Australia’s university campuses.
“Peter Ridd was expressing opinions, and that has been the entire essence of universities since the days of Plato and Socrates,” he said.
“There must a free expression of ideals for universities to operate properly. When I was at university I disagreed with radicals who opposed Vietnam but I defended tenaciously their right to free expression of their point of view.
“The CEO class now run the universities, the corporations and half the trade unions. They are stifling freedoms in this country.”

Far North Queensland federal member Bob Katter has attacked the Liberal National Party’s Identify and Disrupt bill before Parliament, enabling police to spy on every citizen by coming through a back door in emails and other private media communications.
He said Australia is now a total Orwellian society and voters should be alarmed at the LNP/ALP duopoly’s trashing of human rights.
The Identify and Disrupt Bill 2021 grants the Australian Federal Police (AFP) and the Australian Criminal Intelligence Commission (ACIC) the power to modify, add, copy, or delete data, on a person’s online accounts.
So what this means is that the AFP can log into your Email, your Facebook, Instagram any other social media, and not only view it but actually alter it however they want. They can send emails on your behalf, they can post things on your behalf, they can engage in criminal activity on your behalf in order to reach their objective. And if they want to throw you under the bus, you’re just collateral damage.
This will not only turn Australia into a bigger surveillance state, but it will make the government the enemy of Australians.
“The Christian Brothers, and other educators, insisted on us reading 1984 and A Brave New World, and now these Orwellian predictions have never seemed more real,” Mr Katter said.
“Whatever argument you have for forsaking your freedoms, at the end of the day you will find it’s a poor trade off.
Mr Katter said Australia was becoming one of the most oppressive western regimes, and things were getting worse every day as both mainstream political parties restricted people’s freedoms.
“George Orwell’s book 1984 released in the 1960s was a horror story, but now it is a brutal reality,” he said.
“The Government can fund multi-million-dollar hardware to use against its own people when at the same time they can’t even provide the resources to protect their citizens against continuous home invasions, build dams, or to firm up our fuel security.
“Even boiling a billy after a walk through the bush can put you in breach of multiple petty regulations these days. It’s 1984 Orwell, not Australia.”
This is not vax vs anti-vax, this is not state vs state, this is human rights. Do you want to ask the government permission to go see your Mum who lives in another state or never travel to another state because they’ve decided your not allowed in.
We need our rights and freedom back, we can use our numbers, lets use people power. We all need to get involved for it to work. Please take this seriously and take a few minutes to help protect your rights, protect the children’s future!
Craig Kelly Introducing the Bill for ‘No domestic COVID vaccination passports 2021’
Letter to your Senator template and your local Senator look up
Local senator look up;
You can copy the Template Letter from directly below (same as one in link above) add your own details (senators details at the top your name at the bottom).
Note – make it your own; take or add what you like/belief, we are individuals and have our own beliefs so please express your beliefs as i said we are talking about protecting our Human Rights with this Bill, Covid is just the easy fear tactic for us (Australian’s/Humanity) to not fight for our ‘rights’ and freely give up our birth right of ‘freedom’ to move uninhibited around our big beautiful country we all love so much. Fight for Australia, fight for our freedom and fight for our future generations freedom.
To ____ the Federal member for _____
I’m writing to you as a concerned constituent, as I am deeply disturbed by the prospect of limited travel under the introduction of domestic vaccine passports.
Restricting travel as a means of coercing the population of Australia into receiving a vaccine that is still in it’s trial phases is extremely unethical, and I’m of the firm belief that to do so is a gross violation of our civil liberties and medical autonomy.
To restrict our freedom of movement in exchange for a medical procedure or otherwise goes against:
- The Universal declaration of human rights – article 13
- The Australian human rights commission – article 12
- The Australian Commonwealth Constitution – section 92
Covid-19 vaccines have somehow breezed through the system without TGA approval under rushed emergency legislation with no scientific transparency, and I’m disgusted that our federal government would consider restricting our freedom of movement as a means of coercing Australians into accepting a substance that has not yet been proven safe or effective.
To restrict Australian’s from interstate or intrastate travel is an outrageous violation of our human rights, and completely disproportionate to the objective of effectively managing covid-19.
It is completely unnecessary and wildly unethical to coerce Australian’s into making a medical decision without so much as a standard TGA approval.
In light of this information, I strongly urge you as one of your constituents to uphold the Australian people’s right to choose and vote in favour of Craig Kelly’s ‘No Domestic Vaccine Passports Bill 2021’.
If you choose not to protect our rights as Australians as a priority going forward, you will leave me no choice but to vote against you in the next election.
KENNEDY MP, Bob Katter, has called on the Federal Government to cancel its membership with the United Nations Educational, Scientific and Cultural Organization (UNESCO) which he says has become controlled by the dictatorial Chinese regime.
Mr Katter’s comments follows a push by a China-chaired UN committee to declare the Great Barrier Reef “in danger”.1
The Katter’s Australian Party (KAP) Federal MP says the move by UNESCO is not related to environmental concerns but a further bullying move by the Chinese regime.
“UNESCO has moved to classify one quarter of Australia’s oceans endangered, well how come only five years ago the leading world authority on nature, David Attenborough, said the reef was ‘the most magical place on earth’2,” Mr Katter said.
“Just last October myself and the other Members of the KAP (Nick Dametto, Robbie Katter and Shane Knuth) went diving on the Great Barrier Reef off Mission Beach, and I would describe it as magnificent.
“My office was on the phone just this morning with Daniel McCarthy one of the biggest tourism operators in Cairns; he’s been at Lizard Island for two months and he said the areas that were thought to be dead or destroyed two years ago are now thriving.”
Mr Katter said Australia had to stand up to the bully that is China, and fight this move to classify the Great Barrier Reef as endangered.
“China has come after our coal industry, they’ve halted trade on our beef, grain and wine; well we must say enough is enough,” he said.
“When are we going to stand up? China is still in control of the Darwin Port; they still have their tentacles in our universities with the Confucius Institutes and they’re still in control of our sensitive defence data through the China-owned Global Switch data centre in Sydney.
“The Federal Government has made the right noises, but I don’t see them acting.”
