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.”
by ‘Nola’ a Victoria Government media adviser
What an absolute load of rubbish. Whilst you are referring to Dan Andrews and China, why not tell the entire story – why are you trying to undermine a Labor Premier? That entire article about DA and Fox is so obviously lies, but here do some more on the China aspect.
Who signed the Australia China Free Trade Agreement? Who leased the Darwin Port? In 2015, the Liberals agreed to lease the Port of Darwin to Chinese company, Landbridge, which says it was part of Belt & Road. It was the wrong call. During this time, Frydenberg was Minister for Northern Australia, Morrison was Treasurer and Andrew Robb was part of photo op and then took a job with China. “The Victorian agreements certainly pale in importance compared with the deal the Northern Territory government did a few years ago to lease the Port of Darwin to a Chinese company. “
Premier Dan Andrews (below) signs up to the Belt and Road thus creating a rogue China state. Nola says the Liberals and other Labor States are bigger China sycophants than Dan. We couldn’t agree more. Editor
And you might want to check out the NSW Strategy?
or this; “Aug 27, 2020 — Of the agreements found on public record there are 19 by the NSW government, 31 by Queensland, 29 are with South Australian authorities …”
Australia’s biggest and oldest farm sold to China, and sale approved by none other than Scotty from Marketing.
The federal government also signed this in 2017. The Victorian document was negotiated by the previous Liberal government and Labor signed it only a couple of weeks after taking office.
In 2018 Simon Birmingham declared “we welcome the fact that Victoria has shown their enthusiasm and initiative. The Australian Government welcomes the fact that through the Belt and Road Initiative China invest more across our region.”
Back in 2019 Scott Morrison had this to say about the Belt and Road Initiative, “We would be mugs to not accept the Belt and Road Initiative with China – mugs!”
And Abbott welcomed PowerChina’s investment into The Australian market after it signed a MOU with Victoria. He said, “ They are looking to invest in infrastructure in Victoria and obviously the East West Link offers them a very big opportunity in the months and years ahead.”
Denis Napthine was also pleased that PowerChina was looking at bidding on stage two of the East West Road Project, the Melbourne Metro rail tunnel and the Port of Hasting.
Of course, the Turnbull Government refused to release the agreement it had signed with China that detailed the terms of the Belt and Road Infrastructure Initiative saying China did not want the details of the agreement released to the public.
This occurred after Federal Government Trade Minister Steve Ciobo signed the memorandum of understanding, agreeing to cooperate with China building Bridges, Roads and dams in Australia.
Then a hawkish Scott Morrison in 2021, tears up two Belt and Road Initiative agreements between Victoria and China.
Why? Because Victoria has a Labor government. Morrison is all about politics, nothing else.
Editor: Cairns News has already published much of Liberal and Labor’s China escapades mentioned above.
Nola should read Cairns News more often. Why not ring Dan at his parents Mansfield property ask him to send a selfie mug shot next to Monday’s Age newspaper. No more photoshop please.
Our Mansfield correspondent advises she has another article ready to go. Watch this space.

Electric Busses made in China
Brisbane has bought electric buses from China that are possibly and most likely loaded with Spyware and potentially miniaturized military explosive devices to disable them when needed. Aluminum/magnesium and other alloys can be triggered to flash burn, we learnt that 60 years ago; modern science can explode specific materials by simple devices.
Four of these buses go on trial on June 14.
Very sophisticated Spyware appears to have been in many other devices manufactured there, phones, photocopiers, coffee machines etc, for over twenty years. Strange devices appeared in early photocopiers etc. the repair man did not understand, they do now. Now it appears phones are taking photographs and recordings that are automated and sending them.
Many programs have other activities, it appears if using Ticktock of Huawei your data can be manipulated, forwarded, copied, or deleted — wonder why UK, France, US and Australia object to Huawei.
We should have brought Australian made electric buses; we refuse to travel on them and so should you.
Readers should look up the speech to Officers and Generals given 15 years ago by General Chi Haotian Vice-Chairman of China’s Military Commission and Défense Minister 1993 – 2003.

Direct national security threat from China suggesting Australia should be bombed
Member for Kennedy, Bob Katter has seconded a motion that called for the Federal Government to immediately tear up the contract that allows a Chinese corporation to store Australia’s secure defence data, citing that the extension of this contract threatens Australia’s national security.
Supporting crossbench colleague and Member for Clarke, Andrew Wilkie, in moving the motion, Mr Katter said it was unbelievable that the Government would allow any foreign corporation to have access to and control over sensitive defence data, let alone a Chinese company called Global Switch.
Mr Katter said he was disappointed that major parties voted against a motion that attempted to claw back Australia’s sovereignty.
“My honourable colleague, Mr Wilkie, who is moving this motion said you couldn’t make this up, you seriously couldn’t make this up,” Mr Katter said during his speech to parliament.
“Australia’s most strategic security asset is that information system and it’s in the hands of people that put on social media, over there in China, a doctored picture of an Australian soldier cutting the throats of babies.
Mr Katter said that he was familiar with the power of inertia in the public service, after a decade in the Queensland Government as a Minister and pleaded with the Minister for Defence and the Assistant Minister for Defence to understand and act immediately.
“I have never seen a Government more out of step with the people. They’ve let every asset be taken over by foreigners and if they don’t stop this contract immediately, they can expect the rage and fire of 25 million Australians bearing down upon them.”
Assistant Defence Minister, Andrew Hastie responded to the motion, saying he didn’t take Department official’s word as gospel.
“My eagle eye will be on this issue going forward and I will be seeking additional updates as I did last week because my concern (about Global Switch) is no different than yours,” Mr Hastie said.
“I know the Minister for Defence is also keenly aware of this issue and we will both be monitoring this process carefully to ensure it happens as quickly as possible.
“Had I been a decision maker many years ago this would never have happened, but I’m here now and we’re working through this problem.”

We need a bit more intelligent in-depth thinking than this video. The bill referred to in this clip is the result of urgent national security requirements — think carefully about the words hereunder.
THIS IS A DRACONIAN BILL, BUT NECESSARY TO PROTECT AUSTRALIA.
You have already been warned of potential terrorist attacks, take them very seriously.
You should know China has fully mapped Australia for imminent invasion, they know more about our country than you do.
HIKVISION Home & Business security systems installed in many areas are owned by the CCP, all films are sent back to China. Sold by Australia Post. Every Chinese business is ex-official of the CCP or they are not permitted to operate.
Every high rise building owned by Chinese is a security beacon and control directional unit.
The new Brisbane electric buses made in China are all likely loaded with spyware that could possibly also detonate simple looking structural materials — they could have been made here in Australia.
The list is endless.
Understand there have been some very serious foiled terrorist attacks, some best kept from the public to prevent copy-cat acts and kept out of the press..
When the head of National Security warns the people, and very conservative and protective men of impeccable credentials like Peter Dutton take the action they have with this legislation — there is a very valid reason and urgent need.
We are under constant computer attack hacking into business and government computers, many attempts made to get into defence, national security areas and airports to crash planes; our system is being tested by criminal elements some supported by Governments, we are very vulnerable because we have never had tough laws given to government before as we have not needed them. Laws like these have been in overseas governments for decades, many since the last war.
Our lax laws are being used against us, the illegal boat people are just a tiny piece that you might understand easier than the complex algorithms and technical silent and invisible attack weapons unseen by the public — that are seriously visible to the defence industry.
At Christmas last year we finally gave the Federal Government authority over state governments on matters of national security – they had never had that authority before, states could enter into dangerous liaison agreements that could not be stopped. Dictator Dan had his Belt & Roads deal with China quickly stopped, others are underway, including a Defence Force investigation into the Darwin Port being controlled by Chinese thanks to the NT Govt.
We are now in a very different world to that of ten years ago, We either have hard laws or we do not survive as we know Australia today. If China wants to attack us there is little we can do without help from other countries UK & US. Sometimes measures for our own good are hard to take, and impossible for the ignorant whose attitude encourages attacks on our country.
Shadow Foreign Affairs Minister Penny Wong has accused the federal government of endangering Australia’s relationship with China by using alarmist rhetoric for domestic political gain.
In an address to a Canberra book launch, Senator Wong said Prime Minister Scott Morrison had been indulging in political opportunism in foreign affairs.
“My concern is that not only does he not fully comprehend Australia’s interests in relation to China, he doesn’t even seek to,” she said.
“It’s always about the domestic political advantage — either in the internal fights within the Liberal Party in pandering to the far right, or in seeking to pursue some partisan advantage over the Labor Party.”
Senator Wong also took aim at Home Affairs secretary Mike Pezzullo over his comments that free nations are once again hearing “the beating drums” of war.
“Today, as free nations again hear the beating drums and watch worryingly the militarisation of issues that we had, until recent years, thought unlikely to be catalysts for war, let us continue to search unceasingly for the chance for peace while bracing again, yet again, for the curse of war,” Mr Pezzullo told staff in an Anzac Day message last month.
He also said Australia should strive to reduce the likelihood of war “but not at the cost of our precious liberty”.
Mr Pezzullo’s comments came days after Defence Minister Peter Dutton said conflict over Taiwan should not be discounted as tensions between the US and China rise in the Pacific.
Senator Wong called that rhetoric unhelpful, and said inflating the threat of war would serve China’s purposes.
“Two of the people most responsible for keeping Australians safe are instead talking tough for political purposes, and in doing so they are playing directly into the CPC’s narrative and providing Beijing with the leverage that comes with a sense of inevitability about crisis, conflict and war,” she said.
“The first job of national leaders is the safety of their citizens. Our leaders do not make us safe by beating the drums of war with China.
“Foreign policy should not be the prosecution of domestic politics by other means because, as I’ve said, in diplomacy words matter.”
Australia’s relationship with China has deteriorated sharply over the past year, as the country hit local exports with a wide range of trade barriers after Australia called for an independent investigation into the origins of COVID-19.
The federal government also tore up Victoria’s controversial Belt and Road Initiative agreement with China last month, prompting China to freeze activities under its Strategic Economic Dialogue with Australia.
Fiery independent MHR, Bob Katter accuses Wong of stoking the China fire
“A Chinese Communist Party diplomat had a picture of an Australian solider slitting the throat of a child posted on twitter,” Mr Katter said
“They had on Chinese state media, which is government controlled, Australia should be bombed.
“Penny, is it really us stoking the fires?
“What has Morrison said?
“What has Dutton said?
“You might accuse me of stoking the fires. Well that’s because in the last major war they were prepared to give North Queensland to the enemy, Japan.
“Was it China or Australia who imposed trade bans on the other country?
“Drew Pavlou and his mates were having a peaceful protest at the University of Qld for Hong Kongers and Uighurs. Did they stoke the fire?
“Or was it the Chinese thugs who attacked them on campus during their peaceful demonstration.
“Penny Wong’s statements are outrageous.
“If things unfold as people are predicting they will unfold, then her comments will be remembered, just as those people who were selling iron ore to Japan before the 2nd World War.”
Katter says tear up Darwin Port lease to China now – he has the numbers to make it happen in parliament
Former LNP Trade Minister Andrew Robb profited enormously from the port deal
Member for Kennedy, Bob Katter, MHR has warned the federal Government to tear up the Port of Darwin lease with its Chinese owners, arguing that a “review” will achieve nothing but waste time.
Mr Katter’s opposition to the Port of Darwin sale – a 99 year lease to Communist Chinese controlled Landbridge Corporation – has been tenacious over the last six years, concerned by the economic and security implications of the sale.
Former Labor Prime Minister Kevin Rudd has joined the crescendo to kick out Landbridge which secured the long-term operational control of the commercial facility in 2015 as part of a $506 million deal with the Northern Territory government.
The lease was signed by former CLP chief minister Adam Giles, but Mr Rudd said key ministers within the federal Coalition government were also responsible for the outcome.
“[It was] all approved, all let through, by Morrison when he was Treasurer [and] Frydenberg was then Minister for Northern Australia,” Mr Rudd said.
He added that former Trade Minister Andrew Robb also took on a lucrative consulting job with Landbridge after he left office.
“For all those political reasons, Dutton, Morrison, Frydenberg know that they are deeply exposed on this issue.
Katter warned Australia’s national security was being severely compromised while the CCP continues to acquire strategic assets across the north of the country, “right on our doorstep”.
He reminded the LNP government that the top half of the Australian continent was already encircled by China, stretching from Cockatoo Island near Derby in Western Australia to Keswick Island near Mackay in Central Queensland.
“Why do we need a review to see if it is good for Australia? Blind Freddie could see it’s not!,” Mr Katter said.
“Darwin is the only port between Cairns and Broome making up half of the entire Australian coastline and the sale should never have happened in the first place.
“You can’t get anything out of the Northern half of Australia except out of a foreign Check Point Charlie (Port of Darwin) which can charge you whatever he feels like charging you.
“Up to 300,000 head of live cattle go through Darwin, and for six years we have been in a situation where a foreign corporation can charge us whatever they feel like charging and decide what goes through the port because they own the port.
“They can close the port to any competing development by Australians and by having control of that port, they control the whole economy of the north western quarter of Australia.
“It is not my aspiration as an Australian, to work in a country owned by foreign landlords where I’ll work as some sort of modern-day serf for whatever amount of money that they feel like paying me”, Mr Katter said.
“I’ve said this before, anyone that would give away their only ‘non-coal loading’ Panamax port in the northern half of the continent to a foreign power has committed treason.
“Don’t waste time with a review. Just tear it up now.”
Mr Katter said that he was confident he had the numbers in the Parliament to suspend standing orders and move for the Port of Darwin lease to be torn up.
“I’ve had a motion drafted and ready for the last few months. I’m confident that I have to numbers to get this up. So who’s going to move first?!”
Landbridge secured the long-term operational control of the commercial facility in 2015 as part of a $506 million deal with the Northern Territory government.
The lease was signed by former Country Liberal Party chief minister Adam Giles, but Mr Rudd said key ministers within the federal Coalition government were also responsible for the outcome.
“[It was] all approved, all let through, by Morrison when he was Treasurer [and] Frydenberg was then Minister for Northern Australia,” Mr Rudd said.
He added that former minister Andrew Robb also took on an $800,000 per annum lucrative consulting job with Landbridge after he left office.
As part of the “confidential” consultancy deal, Mr Robb, the architect of the China-Australia Free Trade Agreement, began consulting to Ye Cheng the day before the July 2 federal election in 2016.
It’s estimated that Mr Robb pocketed more than $2 million plus expenses from Landbridge. A company document revealed that Mr Robb’s consulting contract was so vague and ill-defined he would be paid even if he did nothing.
“For all those political reasons, Dutton, Morrison and Frydenberg know that they are deeply exposed on this issue.
“Hence, my prediction is that they will seek to scupper the lease and then there’ll be a huge financial liability on the part of the taxpayer.”
Mr Rudd said he was not privy to current intelligence briefings, but he was aware of concerns raised by the US after the deal was signed.
“My understanding from Washington, for example, is that the US administration at the time was absolutely ropeable by the dim-witted nature of this particular decision back in 2015.”
DFAT has previously said the Darwin Port lease was not within the scope of the Foreign Relations Act.
Mr Robb’s consultancy with the leaseholder of the Darwin Port, Landbridge, was trumpeted by the Chinese-government aligned company in 2016, but became intensely controversial when an investigation by The Age, The Sydney Morning Herald and Four Corners revealed his fee, and that he had joined the company straight after quitting parliament.
Mr Robb joins former foreign minister Bob Carr and former Victorian premier John Brumby in taking up lucrative roles with companies or, in Mr Carr’s case, a think tank, founded by businessmen with strong ties to the Chinese Communist Party.
Lambie and Katter force LNP to hold Royal Commission into war veteran suicide
Bob Katter says Joe Biden the greatest danger to world peace he has seen in his lifetime
These two representatives, possessing tremendous intestinal fortitude are just that. They listen to the people. The LNP/ALP free-trading and de-regulating duopoly represent only foreign interests and the big end of town. Katter and Lambie represent the people.
It is so important for voters to support these two aussies who have the good of the people and country at heart. The political definition of stupidity is to keep voting for the same people but expect a different result. If voters cannot see that the corporate duopoly looks after only corporate vested interests then these people should not be voting.
The Northern Peninsula Area Regional Council is holding fast against a rogue traditional owner who has told the Cairns Post newspaper he will shut down Pajinka at the Tip of Cape York to tourists.
Mayor Patricia Yusia said today tourists should not listen to Michael Solomon who is claiming to be a traditional owner for Pajinka.
Nor should they take any notice of the paper claiming the Pajinka Road will be closed because “it will not happen,” said the Mayor.
“The road is open, nothing has changed and tourists are always welcome.
“The council is in charge of the Pajinka Road not Michael Solomon.”
The glaring headline on the front page of the Cairns Post claiming the gate will be locked on the Tip is more beating up and has no basis in fact because there is no gate there or at any other of the tourist hotspots mentioned in the article.
Cairns News has been told Mr Solomon is upset because the State Government had knocked back a funding application for works at the Pajinka site, hence the attack on tourists which impacts the NPARC community as a whole, not tourists or the state government.
It was just a year ago that other rogue Pajinka claimants from Sydney signed up for the sale of the Pajinka site to a Chinese company.
Federal Member for Kennedy Bob Katter raised the matter in Parliament at the time citing national security concerns and after several genuine traditional owners discovered the imminent sale it was stopped.
Bamaga sources, in a previous article in Cairns News, said that Michael Solomon was not a rightful traditional owner or claimant of Pajinka. The source said Mr Solomon is a Solomon Islander whose grandfather moved from the Pacific Islands settlement on Moa Island to the mainland.
Blackfella politics has always been part and parcel of life on Cape York Peninsula and in some cases it has become ‘dog eat dog’ over land claims and boundaries between competing groups.
Former Prime Minister Bob Hawke was a cunning operator and he knew the land rights bill he started would divide Aboriginal and Islander people forever. After Hawke was deposed by Paul Keating in 1991 the Native Title bill was enacted in 1993.
Allowing governments to patronise indigenous people by divide and conquer tactics means the government of the day stays in control of indigenous people leaving them entirely dependent on the government teat to exist.
White people too however have long been caught in this divisive net.
We ask readers to appreciate the damage being done to Far Northern tourism by The Cairns Post running fake news stories particularly after the Covid plandemic has left no option for the majority of Cairns tourist operators but to close down as soon as the federal Jobkeeper funding program finishes at the end of the month.

Last year Professor Charles Lieber(Wuhan) and 2 Chinese nationals were arrested on fraud and scientific espionage charges. China maintains a program called the “Thousand Talents Plan”, which is designed to bribe foreigners and convince them to divulge information to the Chinese, giving them a strategic technological advantage.
Charles Lieber has been working at Harvard on fibre-optic nanowire tech for the past 22 years, and with nanotech and nanoscale structures in general for even longer than that. All of his publications are still online:
Many of his papers describe using silicon nanowires as the basis of BCIs, or brain-computer interfaces.
Silicon nanowire transistors are extremely small, on the order of a few micrometers long by a few nanometers thick. They are small enough to be coated with HIV TAT peptides and slipped right through the membrane of a cell.
Once inside, they’re capable of reading signals from (and modulating the activity of) individual neurons. How does one power them if they’re inside cells and have no batteries, capacitors, or other power source? Simple. RF induction.
What device is capable of directing the required RF frequency directly into someone’s head? A phased-array beamforming antenna. What uses phased-array beamforming antennas? 5G wireless cell networks.
