Flag-burning mostly young white people posing as hard done by blackfellas marched through Brisbane in monotonous regularity on Saturday looking for a cause on which to vent their pent-up anger as they fumed over three months of Coronahoax lockups and being ignored by mainstream Australians.
Their destination was Musgrave Park in South Brisbane, a perpetual haunt of homeless, drunken Aborigines and whites for the past 60 to 70 years.
It has nothing to do with black deaths in custody but has been a youth rebellion rolled into several decades of demonstrations but in more recent times fostered by the extreme agendas of the Greens.
In Saturday’s ABC footage, which would have televised blackfellas had they been there, 80 per cent of the estimated 500 strong crowd are white.
Without any doubt most will be Greens members, supporters and uni students all plundering the public purse.
A spokesman for the mob calls himself Boe Spearim and he looks like he has been on the $30 billion Murri gravy train for some time. He does not give the appearance of any of his relatives in remote communities who actually work.
The mobs of screaming Brisbane riffraff, one could be forgiven for thinking, have been cajoled by deep state socialist operatives within the Labor Party and Greens.
Fortunately for a long-suffering, working Australian public these so-called BLM demonstrations across the nation have set back Aboriginal causes for another decade.
Already Prime Minister Scott Morrison has alluded to not holding a referendum on including Aborigines in the Commonwealth Constitution never mind they are already in it. If he did hold it in the foreseeable future most Australians would reject any more largesse for the Aboriginal industry particularly after the BLM demonstrations in which participants ignored every Covid 19 rule and burnt Australian flags.
For now reconciliation is finished.
Here is the weapon to use against the medical mafia
Commonwealth of Australia Constitution Act
51 Legislative powers of the Parliament
(xxiiiA) the provision of maternity allowances, widows’ pensions, child endowment, unemployment, pharmaceutical, sickness and hospital benefits, medical and dental services (but not so as to authorize any form of civil conscription), benefits to students and family allowances;
The LNP/ALP duopoly know they can’t forcibly vaccinate the population (any form of civil conscription) so they dangle carrots and withdraw Commonwealth benefits, (some of them are mentioned above), if vaccination is refused.
Take the nursing home nonsense being pushed by Chief Medical Officers requiring visitors to aged care facilities to have taken the toxic, ineffective and dangerous flu shot. No shot, no entry. As we have reported the flu season only starts when Big Pharma starts marketing millions of flu vials for dopey doctors to infect the population.
Readers have suggested a fighting force be started to take on Big Pharma and a group can be started when a leader steps forward to spearhead a class action against mass medication using Section 51 as a defence. Section 51 states unequivocally that “… any form of civil conscription” is not lawful.
There are several large no win, no pay law firms who should jump at this one. Certainly some NRL footballers have been doing a great job exposing the danger of dirty flu vaccines by refusing the toxic injection.
Aggrieved nursing home visitors and those who want to place their kids in educational facilities but are prevented enrollment unless they subject their poor kids to a dozen dangerous injections, would have incentive to start litigation. There are others who have been hung out to dry over opposition to forced vaccinations and looking to stymie Big Pharma’s multi-billion dollar vaccine depopulation programs.
If we could roll enough of them together a snowball effect would begin. Furthermore there are enough senior doctors and authoritative medical researchers coming out of the woodwork exposing the Coronahoax who could provide all the evidence needed to overthrow the criminal pharmaceutical industry and their bribed political stooges.
Urgent action is needed now before PM Scott Morrison gets his hands on Bill Gates’ witch’s cauldron of toxic ingredients waiting to be forcibly stuck into the bloodstreams of innocent people.
This pre-planned, societal shutdown experiment is entering its exit stages carefully managed and documented by the so-called National Cabinet of State Premiers and the Prime Minister.
This is round one, conducted to gauge public reaction by removing people’s rights, then benevolently returning them one by one thus conditioning suburbia to accept the upcoming, harsher round two.
The most disturbing aspect of the economic decimation, food deprivation, home imprisonment, job losses, military checkpoints and swift para-military police intervention is that it is being overseen by Chief Medical Officers. What happened to our political representatives? It seems they have been hiding under rocks since the contrived epidemic began.
Are there any class action starters? email@example.com

Boris Johnson’s House of Commons Leader Jacob Rees-Mogg has no time for those who believe the coronavirus pandemic is a reason for sidelining parliament.
“Parliament’s role of scrutinising government, authorising spending and making laws must be fulfilled,” he said recently.
The only question for Rees-Mogg is how parliament can sit in the current circumstances. To that end, he is now “considering every technological solution available”.
PM Scott Morrison sees the role of the Australian parliament very differently. He’s dismissed the need for regular parliamentary sittings during the current coronavirus crisis on the basis that MPs “have got a bigger job to do out
there in their communities than they would have [in Canberra]”.
His Attorney-General, Christian Porter, has gone further, declaring “we’ve got better things to do” than “set down a regular sitting schedule”.
But parliamentarians serve their communities by representing them in parliament; there is no bigger job. It is through the parliament that MPs can ensure that the needs and interests of their communities are being addressed by the Government.
Fundamentally, that is the job they are elected to do.
When the parliament sat on 23 March, Mr Morrison shut it down for five months. He was forced to reconvene parliament again after reversing his position on wage subsidies but if he has his way, we won’t sit again until August.
That is not how parliamentary democracies work. Parliament is more than a group of MPs who are brought together whenever the government of the day needs approval for its latest legislation, however worthy that legislation may be.
It is not the Parliament’s job to serve the interests of the Australian Government. Its job is to serve the interests of the Australian people. That vital function must not be placed into hibernation during a time of crisis.
Disturbingly, Mr Morrison does not appear to think that his decision to shutdown the parliament is particularly significant.
But it is a momentous and unprecedented decision. Our federal Parliament continued to sit during World War I, the 1919 Spanish flu, and World War II. The mother of our parliament, the British House of Commons, even found ways to sit during the Blitz.
And as research produced by the Parliamentary Library has confirmed, Mr Morrison’s decision to shut down our parliament is not a decision that is being replicated in similar democracies such as the UK, New Zealand, Canada and the USA.
Over the next five months, the Morrison Government will make decisions that will have extraordinary repercussions for millions of Australians and for the social and economic fabric of Australia for at least a generation.
The parliament passed extraordinary powers to respond to the current public health crisis. It is absurd and dangerous to suggest that the parliament now has no role in ensuring that these emergency powers are being exercised in the best interests of their constituents and of our nation.
Of course the national parliament may need to alter the way it sits to protect the health of its members and the general public. There are many ways this can be done, such as by having reduced numbers of MPs attending in person and through the use of technology.
The sheer scale the current crisis should also prompt us to consider the adoption of additional accountability mechanisms.
The New Zealand parliament, for example, has tasked a special cross-party parliamentary committee with scrutinising the actions of the Government during the current crisis. The committee is chaired by the Leader of the Opposition, sits remotely and its proceedings are live-streamed to the public.
A number of prominent Australian judges have called for a similar model to be adopted here and this is certainly worthy of debate – in the parliament.
When parliament does reconvene to consider the Government’s proposal on wage subsidies, Mr Morrison should not try to shut it down again after he gets what he needs.
Instead, the Prime Minister must allow the parliament to continue to perform its vital democratic functions during the current crisis.
GREAT Australian Party South Australian federal Senate candidate Gary Matthews and his wife Sheryl are recovering, uninjured but shaken, after a fire bomb attack on their home late on Wednesday night.
The attack came after a series of death threats were made against the couple including a rape threat against Mrs Matthews.
“My wife and I have been targeted and had death threats since just before the last Federal when I ran as a federal Senate candidate for South Australia,” Matthews said on a Facebook post at 3am on Thursday.
“One of the guys that threatened us for weeks said he was going to rape my wife and kill me in front of her.”
Gary said the same person ended up stabbing a police officer in the back at Sydney’s Central Station a few days after that.
The bizarre knife attack was recorded on camera and run by various media outlets.
The man was named as Mark Thompson and he was supposed to appear in a Sydney court again in June after being held in custody.
Cairns News has was not able to find any media reports of any further appearances.
Gary said police were “very confident” of finding suspects as they had taken DNA samples off a plastic jerry can the two attackers left behind as well as from several collector cars in a shed that were damaged.
“The police forensic team have been here for four hours going over everything. It is now 3am in the morning. My wife and I are not going to sleep tonight at all. Can’t even stay safe in our own home any more,” he said in the post.
The Matthews were going to bed when Sheryl saw a huge flash and explosion outside the kitchen window.
“I flew out the door to see two young guys running out through our fence and into a grey or light blue Commodore ute driving off at great speed.
“My wife and I struggled to get the fires put out before it could burn the rest of our house down.
“This time they could have killed us both if we had gone to bed earlier as were going to do.
“We got the fire out with our garden hose and a fire extinguisher, however, they have done around $50,000 damage to our collector’s cars.
“They left a red plastic jerry car under one of the vans which I managed to get out while still burning to stop it getting to the fuel tanks.”
Gary ran with Adelaide market operator Mark Aldridge on The Great Australian Party ticket for the Senate last year.
The duo finished 10th in the state’s Senate vote, gaining 12,698 or 1.6% of the vote, just under 700 votes ahead of the Shooters, Fishers and Farmers Party.
Both Gary and Mark have large followings in Facebook.
Letter to the Editor
Nowhere in the Cth Constitution is mentioned Political Parties or a Prime Minister, only a Federal Executive Council.
COMMONWEALTH OF AUSTRALIA CONSTITUTION ACT – SECT 62
Federal Executive Council
“There shall be a Federal Executive Council to advise the Governor-General in the government of the Commonwealth, and the members of the Council shall be chosen and summoned by the Governor-General and sworn as Executive Councillors, and shall hold office during his pleasure.”
To this end, all Members of Parliament must be independent and to influence a Member in any way is an offence, therefore Political Parties should not exist and are criminally liable for the offences of influence and collusion.
On and after the date of commencement of this Act, a person is not liable to pay any sum under section 46 of the Constitution and no suit shall be instituted, continued, heard or determined in pursuance of that section.
Original jurisdiction is conferred on the High Court in suits under this Act and no other court has jurisdiction in such a suit.”
COMMONWEALTH OF AUSTRALIA CONSTITUTION ACT – SECT 46
Penalty for sitting when disqualified
“Until the Parliament otherwise provides, any person declared by this Constitution to be incapable of sitting as a senator or as a member of the House of Representatives shall, for every day on which he so sits, be liable to pay the sum of one hundred pounds to any person who sues for it in any court of competent jurisdiction.”
As well in Common Informers (Parliamentary Disqualifications) Act 1975
…. (3) The High Court shall refuse to make an order in a suit under this Act that would, in the opinion of the Court, cause the person against whom it was made to be penalized more than once in respect of any period or day of sitting as a senator or as a member of the House of Representatives.” = TREASON.
So much for Separation of Powers!

The “Stinkin Thinkin” that underpins the left of Australian Politics is that Almighty God is elected to the Parliament of the Commonwealth, and that he also is elected to every State and Territory Parliament with unlimited power, to use and abuse the electorate as it deems fit. The “Stinkin Thinkin” introduced by Whitlam, followed by Fraser, and continued by every Liberal-Australian Labor Party –Greens Coalition Government since, is that once a Parliament is elected it has a divine right to govern as it sees fit.
However like Mighty Mouse, confronted with a Tiger, it has and looks pathetic when push comes to shove. This “Stinkin Thinkin” has permeated the United Kingdom, the European Union, and is of course in force in China, which on every occasion when united has sought to expand. Donald Trump has ended the “Stinkin Thinkin” in the United States of America, and Scott Morrison ought to be given a chance to end it here. Unless the Parliament of the Commonwealth asserts it superiority by getting its identity correct, and the Paramount Parliament, chaos will continue for another three years unless a minor party, the Great Australian Party gets enough Senators to ensure sanity returns.
While it is a lovely dream to think that we elect Almighty God when we elect a Prime Minister: it aint necessarily so. Bill Shorten inane question to Scott Morrison about whether homosexuals go to hell, exposes his absolute lack even though he is a lawyer, of the first question any lawyer asks, when confronted with a court. Has this Court jurisdiction? The wonderful great big court of public opinion, in which we have a contest for Prime Minister, and lots of little contests for individual seats, is being led astray by a silver tongued lawyer, who presumes that the Australian Electorate is equivalent to Almighty God.
Shorten is supposed to say the Lord’s Prayer, every day he sits in the Parliament of the Commonwealth. No one has asked him if he does. I am sure his vision of heaven is a carbon free Australia, but without a World Referendum, Mr Shorten and his fellow dream merchants are urinating into the wind. The pandemonium that followed Whitlam’s election in 1992, and permanently damaged the Commonwealth, should not be repeated, in 2019. Only Almighty God can change the climate, and with over a billion Indians and more than a billion Chinese, all breathing out 2.5 pounds of carbon every day, only a nuclear war between those two superpowers can save the planet from Carbon Dioxide. That is if Carbon Dioxide is the villain Bill Shorten thinks it is.
My comment is that Bill Shorten made the same mistake as Mark Latham when he attacked Scott Morrison for his Christianity. Australia is still a Christian country albeit under attack. On Saturday the majority of Christians will smash Shorten and the Greens and endorse a return to the Constitution and its Christian roots. Take the five dollars the bookies are offering, because Almighty God always wins.
What sort of a question is it when the Leader of the Opposition wants the Prime Minister to talk for God Almighty, and decide who goes which way in the afterlife. Good on Israel Folau for sticking to his Christian beliefs, He may have just gifted Morrison an election!!
One question Bill Shorten and his lawyer mates need to answer: Since when did Almighty God appear on the ballot paper? Only Almighty God decides who goes to heaven or hell, not the Prime Minister. Does Bill Shorten believe he will become Almighty God and with his mighty wand end Climate Change, decide who goes to heaven or hell, and create all the gold he will need to keep his promises. There are 17% still undecided. How will they vote!!!!!!
Europe is burning wood to generate electricity, and the carbon released as Carbon Dioxide is not counted!!!!! Of course it is not counted as it is from the earth and when the ash is returned to the earth, the trees grow again and repeat the cycle. A biomass base load Power Station situated in the vast eucalyptus forests of the Savannah woodlands of Northern Australia would provide a renewable power source of unlimited potential.
Richard Marles, Mark Dreyfus, Penny Wong and Bill Shorten are all lawyers, and are assuming that if elected on Saturday Bill Shorten will become Almighty God and decide who will or will not go to hell, and who will not or will suffer from the actions on Climate Change. It is an insufferable imposition on Christians and Muslims alike, and the very worst kind of bullying, to attack the faith of a fellow Australian.
By having Her Majesty, Queen Elizabeth the Second the Queen of the Constitution of the Commonwealth as Sovereign, only a referendum can impose atheism upon the people of Australia. The Great Australian Party which is making the Commonwealth of Australia Constitution Act 1900 and Commonwealth its central policy, is a complete answer to this type of bullying, and Senator Rod Culleton and his team ought to be elected to the Senate to finish the job of returning law and order, as a civil and political right under the Constitution.
The legal profession which numbered among its number 23 Liberal Party members, and 23 Labor Party Members, and one Green in the House of Representatives and sixteen lawyers in the Senate carried bullying to an extreme, when Senator Rod Culleton as he then was called for a debate on the Judiciary, which are exclusively lawyers, in the Senate on the 1st December 2016.
The Turnbull Government carried out that bullying, by instructing the Australian Government Solicitor and its counsel in the High Court to mislead and deceive the High Court, by excluding admissible evidence, and mislead and deceive a Federal Court of Australia Judge in Perth, about the obligations of the Attorney General who was at the time Senator George Henry Brandis to obtain an adjournment on the 19th December 2016.
Banks and other criminal corporations have been using Bankruptcy for around 53 years to bully victims out of their day in a fair court with judges, as guaranteed by S 79 Constitution, and Bill Shorten’s arrack on Scott Morrison for his Christian views, is a full frontal attack by lawyers on the Christianity of Her Majesty, Queen Elizabeth the Second, the Queen of the Constitution of the Commonweal and is part of this widespread and systematic bullying policy.

Senator in exile, Rodney Culleton, after being locked in battle with the corporate Australian legal system since 2016, has filed an action in the High Court of the United Kingdom to have his expulsion from the senate overturned.
Culleton said yesterday he was excited the High Court had accepted his Constitutional argument in the first step to overturn the Australian High Court direction he be thrown out of the senate because of bankruptcy.
“I have never been bankrupt,” he said.
A single judge of the Federal Court issued sequestration orders against Culleton in 2017 freezing his assets in spite of a 21 day stay of proceedings being granted by the Federal Court.
Vexatious litigant and Perth businessman Dick Lester claimed Culleton owed him $200,000 over a failed sale contract on land, a claim pursued hotly by Culleton but he says Federal Court Judge Michael Barker failed to follow court rules, ignored all due process and did not look at his affidavits.
“When I was sworn-in as a senator on August 30, 2016, I swore allegiance to Queen Elizabeth 2 of the United Kingdom, making an oath to uphold the law.
“I did not swear allegiance to the fictitious Queen of Australia.
“This ceremony was witnessed by the Governor General and his deputy.
“It should be noted the Commonwealth Constitution Act of Australia 1900, (UK) remains in force and cannot be repealed by an Australian Government.
“The High Court of Australia does not have the jurisdiction to throw senators or members out of Parliament. Either House has the only jurisdiction under s47 of the Constitution to deal with a Member’s qualification.
“The Constitution is everyone’s contract but we can’t get a remedy in Australian star chambers which don’t recognise the Constitution.”
The HCA has long drawn criticism from those being refused a hearing on Constitutional matters, with litigants claiming the court is not functioning as a Chapter 3 court as required by the Constitution.
Culleton gave the example of any senator or MHR who files an action in the HCA. It is unlawful for the court to hear any evidence relating to parliamentary procedures under s16 (iii) of the Parliamentary Privileges Act 1987, he said.
“As a result they threw out my Motion 163 without having jurisdiction because they are not sitting as a Chapter 3 court operating under the proper Crown.
“There is no such thing as the ‘Queen of Australia’.
Culleton has asked the Law Lords of the Queens Bench to examine his request to debate his senate Motion 163 of 2016 which the Solicitor General filed in the HCA.
The statement of agreed facts filed in the HCA by the Solicitor General states a NSW Magistrate, in Culleton’s absence could not imprison him for the alleged theft of a $7 truck key from his own truck.
This matter could have, if imprisoned, disqualified Culleton from the senate under s44 of the Constitution.
“Motion 163 of 2016 was a requirement passed by the House announcing that Attorney General George Brandis’ referral of November 7, 2016 to the HCA is faulty and that there needs to be further investigation into that faulty action, originally orchestrated by former Senators Parry and Brandis, which was never passed by any procedure of law, ,” Mr Culleton said.
He said the senate could not lawfully vote on Brandis’ December 7 motion at the time because there were insufficient senators present to form a Quorum under s22 of the Constitution and the relevant material was withheld from the chamber by Senator Brandis and Senator Pauline Hanson.
Culleton’s legal team remains in London until a hearing date is set by the full bench.

This expensive, paternalistic exercise will, if enshrined in the (Claytons) Constitution will cost every Australian a fortune for ever more. The first thing the militant blackfellas will demand is rent be paid to every one of them in the country. The majority of those claiming to be black all appear to be largely white. What a bonanza for the lawyers and those white men who reckon they once lived in gunyahs.
If Shorten and his Labor Party band of carpetbaggers, lesbians and poofters get a majority at the federal election the blackfella bonanza will be legislated. According to the ALP the Commonwealth Constitution of Australia is only useful to kick opposition members out of parliament.
The Joint Select Committee on Constitutional Recognition relating to Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Peoples has presented its final report to the Parliament.
The Committee was established in March to consider matters relating to constitutional change, including the recommendations of the Expert Panel, the previous Joint Select Committee, the Statement from the Heart, and the Referendum Council.
At the outset, the Committee understood and acknowledged that the Statement from the Heart was a significant turning point in the discussion about the constitutional recognition of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples.
As such, the Committee focussed its efforts on the central proposal for constitutional change made in the Statement from the Heart—the proposal for a First Nations Voice.
The Committee has also been mindful of the need to ensure that its recommendations are legitimate and acceptable to Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples, the Parliament, and, ultimately, the Australian people.
In its interim report, the Committee considered the proposal for a Voice in detail, and since July the Committee continued to seek the views of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples and others about how best to achieve constitutional recognition.
In its final report, the Committee endorses the proposal for a Voice. The Committee recommends a process of co-design between government and Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples to determine the detail of the Voice, to conclude within the term of the 46th Parliament.
The Committee further recommends that the appropriate legal form of the Voice be determined following this process of co-design.
The Committee considers that these recommendations are significant steps for the Parliament to discuss and consider, and significant steps towards a bipartisan and agreed approach to advancing the cause of constitutional recognition.
The Committee also makes recommendations in relation to truth-telling about Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander history, traditions, and culture. The Committee hopes that a fuller understanding of Australia’s history will lead to a more reconciled nation.
The Committee acknowledges and thanks everyone who participated in the inquiry, including those who made written submissions and gave evidence at public hearings around Australia.
The final report is available on the Committee’s website at: www.aph.gov.au/jsccr

West Australian senator in exile Rodney Culleton has called on the senate President Richard Pye to call him and former senator Jacqui Lambie to appear before the senate by issuing a writ of Habeas Corpus.
Culleton has been dogged by state and federal government-initiated law suites since being forced out of the senate. When sitting in the senate he pushed for a Royal Commission into corrupt behaviour of banks and for the High Court to reinstate Queen Elizabeth 2 to legal process.
With the help of federal MP Bob Katter, he was successful with the Banking Royal Commission. In part, he got the Queen restored but he pointed out the HCA actually reinstated the fictitious Queen of Australia, which he says is not a lawful entity.
The maverick former farmer has been stymied by government in every legal move he has made to get himself reinstated to the senate.
On the evidence, there is no doubt government has called in judicial favours to knock out his appeals on every occasion, in all levels of courts.
Culleton has also called on the senate to include all other sacked senators, removed as a result of an order from the HCA sitting as the Court of Disputed Returns sought by the Turnbull Government which he says was in breach of the Commonwealth Constitution.
He has asked the senate to debate Motion 163 of 2016, which was lawfully enacted on December 1, 2016 and warned that s147.1 of the Criminal Code Act of 1995 could be invoked for failing to list the motion for further debate.
“Motion 163 of 2016 was a requirement passed by the House announcing that the referral of November 7, 2016 is faulty and that there needs to be further investigation into that faulty action, which was never passed by any procedure of law, orchestrated by former Senators Parry and Brandis,” Mr Culleton said.
“Brandis’ motion to the House in constitutionally forming a meeting by way of a Quorum on November 7, 2016 as defined in s 22 Constitution was a failure of the tellers who counted the ‘Ayes’ and ‘Noes’ who should have noticed insufficient senators were present to take a vote.”
It is of interest that former inept senator George Brandis was whisked away to London to fill the position of Australian High Commissioner, a reward from Turnbull, the Australian Bankers Association representative in government.
Former senate President Stephen parry, a former Tasmanian police officer, has disappeared from the face of the earth after allegations of his involvement in a massive cover-up concerning the framing of alleged Port Arthur shooter, Martin Bryant, caught up to him while sitting as President.
A proposal to create new state of North Queensland has been around for decades but momentum is gathering among fed-up Far Northerners who attended the ‘Boot Brisbane’ forum on Wednesday night.
The first State of Origin match for the year did not deter more than 80 supporters from packing the Brother’s club boardroom in Cairns to hear a decisive argument for the north to break away from a decadent south east corner.
A southern border following the Tropic of Capricorn north of Rockhampton would ultimately foster great prosperity for a languishing North Queensland economy.
Katters Australian Party parliamentary representatives, Robbie Katter, Shane Knuth, Nick Dametto and newest recruit Senator Fraser Anning joined Member for Kennedy Bob Katter who held the floor with compelling economic data compiled by Cairns economist Bill Cummings.
Mr Katter said necessary infrastructure had been neglected by successive state and federal governments and there was no alternative but to allow North Queenslanders to govern themselves because much of the State’s economy was generated north of Rockhampton.
“The State Government has committed $7.5 billion – $2 billion for pleasure domes and $5.5 billion for yet another tunnel in Brisbane.
“There’s just no way that a budget of $54 billion can take a hit of $7.5 billion and have something left over for the rest of the state and the further away from Brisbane then the less money you will get. While they’ve got $5 billion to improve their transportation systems, four years ago we did not get a single cent for road improvement in North Queensland except for a roundabout at Port Douglas that was it.
“We got a roundabout at Port Douglas worth half a million dollars and Brisbane got $3 billion for tunnels and this is going to go on.”
Mr Katter accused the governments of failing to understand industry and economic development in the North.
“You are not allowed to use a drop of water for irrigation in North Queensland except if you make outrageous, corrupt payments to political parties – that’s the only way you’ll ever get a drop of water in North Queensland for irrigation and yet, if North Queensland were a separate country we would be the wettest country on earth.
“We’ve got these huge resources and we’re not allowed to use them so we can’t develop. “We’re not allowed to dredge the Port of Cairns; one of most significant tourist destinations in the world.
“Don’t expect any new dams from the State Government for the Tablelands anytime soon.”
Former Mulgrave Councillor Ron Crew explained how Cairns and the hinterland agricultural industry lost $35 million a year due to a lack of infrastructure projects
“The government won’t agree to dredge the port in a reasonable manner, yet we have the largest population adjacent to any port in northern Australia and agriculture can’t expand,” Mr Crew said.
From a legal point of view the creation of a new state was a simple exercise according to Townsville barrister Peter Raffles, one of the first law graduates from JCU in 1991.
Mr Raffles cited a High Court case in 1978 whether the approval of a majority of electors for surrendering a State and the acceptance by the Commonwealth is necessary and the ability of the Queensland Parliament to legislate for the excising of a new State.
“The State Parliament can do it and no referendum is required,” he said.
Letter to the Editor
In 1950, Israel’s Knesset passed a remarkable law, beginning with a few simple words that defined Israel’s central purpose: “Every Jew has the right to immigrate to this country…”
With the inception of the State of Israel, two thousand years of wandering were officially over. Since then, Jews have been entitled to simply show up and request to be Israeli citizens, assuming they posed no imminent danger to public health, state security, or the Jewish people as a whole. Essentially, all Jews everywhere are Israeli citizens by right.
In 1955, the law was amended slightly to specify that dangerous criminals could also be denied that right.
In 1970, Israel took another historic step by granting automatic citizenship not only to Jews, but also to their non-Jewish children, grandchildren, and spouses, and to the non-Jewish spouses of their children and grandchildren. This addition not only ensured that families would not be broken apart, but also promised a safe haven in Israel for non-Jews subject to persecution because of their Jewish roots.
.Federal MP’s alleged to be Jewish
…………….“While Israelis may hold dual citizenship, a Basic Law passed in 1958 states that Knesset members cannot pledge allegiance as parliamentarians unless their foreign citizenship has been revoked under the laws of that country,” the article states.
Another Israeli politician, who was elected at the same time as Svetlova is Rachel Azaria, who was also forced to renounce her foreign citizenship–in the US! Again from the Times of Israel:
Azaria, a 38-year-old Jerusalem deputy mayor, renounced her American citizenship, which she had held by virtue of her mother having been born in the US.
It is astounding, is it not? Israel gets billions of dollars per year courtesy of US taxpayers–but anyone holding US citizenship is barred from serving in the Knesset! But we are not allowed to have a similar law here in the US banning Israeli citizens from serving in Congress!
And not only do we not have a similar in the US, but apparently Freedom of Information Act requests aimed at finding out which Congress members do in fact hold dual citizenship–are denied. The following is a 2015 article that was published at Counterpunch.
