The nation urgently needs a Donald Trump clone, to ‘Make Australia Great again’
In 2003 I resigned from my job as a Senior Intelligence Analyst to blow the whistle on the fraudulent claims the Howard Government was using to justify taking us to war in Iraq.
I’ve never doubted for one moment that what I did served the interests of my country and its people. Fast forward 15 years and I’m an Independent Federal MP representing the Tasmanian electorate of Denison.
Our Parliament is on the verge of passing draconian legislation that undermines government transparency, our civil liberties and freedom of the press.
Had this legislation (the Espionage and Foreign Interference Bill) been in place in 2003 when I alerted the Australian people to our government’s Iraq War deceit, I’d have faced 25 years in prison.

I’m deeply concerned about the chilling impact this legislation will have on political debate in our country. Whistleblowers and journalists help us hold power to account, and when those voices are silenced our democracy suffers.
And it’s not just whistleblowers and journalists who need to be worried about this legislation. Ordinary people participating in peaceful protest also risk being charged with serious offences. For example, if you or one of your loved ones blockaded the Adani coal mine, the Attorney General could choose to charge you with sabotage – which carries a maximum sentence of 20 years in prison.
I don’t know about you, but I don’t think any single politician should have that sort of power.
Given the current state of global politics, it’s disturbingly easy to imagine the Australian Government might try to follow the US into Donald Trump’s first war. If that were to eventuate, do you want us to be a society that has criminalised whistleblowing?
The Turnbull Government looks set to pass this legislation next week, with the support of the Labor Party. Time is running out for us to make sure the Australian public know what is happening to our democracy.
Andrew Wilkie MP
Malcolm Turnbull, Plague Bacillus
The PM and his Black Handers hijacked the Liberal Party, and in this shameful endeavour they have had far too much success. Barely recognisable as the party of Menzies and Howard, its flight from principle can end only in electoral doom
Niki Savva is apparently unaware of how sadly comic her obsessive Turnbull sycophancy and Abbott-hatred have come to look, repeated monotonously in The Australian. One of the more recent effusions by this spouse of a prime ministerial staffer is headed Turnbull is flawed but only he can win for the Libs and breaks new ground in the reversal of fact. She even managed to dredge up that greatest beat-up of all time, Abbott’s “knighting” of Prince Philip, which unlike Turnbull’s energy policies, cost the community nothing. It simply brought Australia into line with other Commonwealth countries. The remainder of her article is long on abuse but short on facts, plus religious statements of faith such as that under Turnbull the next election is “eminently winnable.”
If the Liberals go into the next election under Turnbull, I believe that they will stand not only to lose but to lose on a scale that will make their recent wipe-out in Western Australia look like the proverbial vicarage tea-party. Forget about merely losing government for a term, let alone any chance of retaining it: the Liberals, as the standard-bearers of Australia’s liberal-conservative tradition, under a continuing Turnbull leadership, stand a good chance of disappearing from history, or perhaps, like the British Liberals, dragging out existence as a sort of ghost of a party. A conservative party under a man with no belief in conservatism is simply not viable.
They just might be saved in the short term by the electorate’s quite justified dread of Shorten’s ruinous 19th century socialism and generally dubious connections, but that’s not the way to bet. And remember 1982, when Labor in a last-minute ambush produced Bob Hawke as leader and trounced Fraser?
The closest thing to values that Turnbull has evoked has been the near-meaningless mantra of “Jobs and Growth.” There is no sign that he comprehends there are things of more transcendent importance. He has given no sign of any awareness of warnings like that given by Italian writer Giulio Meotti:
Without the courage to insist on safeguarding our values, and passing our inheritance on to our children, we Europeans will simply disappear — as many groups have before. With us, however, will disappear the most enlightened civilization the world has ever known.
It is conservatives who take values seriously, who see society not as a machine to be re-jigged but as an old growth to be trimmed and tended with care, the traditions, conventions and values of the past to be take seriously (as Chesterton said, “the democracy of the dead”). They will find precious few signs of such attitudes in what the ABC/Fairfax axis calls the “moderate” – ie Turnbullite – wing of the Liberal Party today.
As Whitlam, Fraser and others discovered to their cost, one thing the Australian electorate dislikes is arrogance. Voters are hardly likely to flock to a prime minister who is arrogance personified — and whose arrogance seems, moreover, to be quite without justification.
Turnbull has allowed the Australian government to pay, on an annual basis, $43.8 million to the Palestinian Authority and $17.6 million to the United Nations Relief and Works Agency. The PA is not only a vicious, corrupt dictatorship but both are directly connected to anti-Jewish terrorism and murder. About half the PA’s budget goes to paying terrorists and their families. The fact Turnbull and Bishop have made simultaneous warm overtures to Israel bespeaks either ignorant confusion of an attempt to run with the hare and hunt with the hounds. This is shocking and indefensible.
The Liberal powerbrokers, if there are any left, cannot depend on conservatives voting for them because, as Mark Textor shamefully and inaccurately opined, they have nowhere else to go. They do. This time there are a number of conservative, patriotic or generally-right-of-centre alternatives. None can be seen as achieving power in its own right but they do not need to. There are none, so far, I agree with completely, and I have deep disagreements with some, but compared to Turnbull’s Black Hand gang, they offer, so far, an awareness of honour and courage. It must take some bravery to be Pauline Hanson.
I write this with no pleasure. My family are rusted-on Liberals. My father and maternal grandfather were Liberal MPs and founding members of the party (my father being briefly Premier of WA). I have twice been a Liberal State candidate and have worked for the party in various capacities since I was teenager. With my children, that makes four generations.
The salient point is that many of the conservatives who make up a large part of the Liberal Party are utterly disgusted by Turnbull’s betrayal of Abbott in particular and betrayal of Liberal principles in general. And they have maintained their rage. The Turnbull regime amounts to nothing less than an attempt to hi-jack the Liberal Party, and in this endeavour it has had far too much success. It has already made it in some places unrecognisable as the party of Menzies and Howard.
Opposition Leader Bill Shorten has written to Prime Minister Malcolm Turnbull asking for him to intervene before Tasmania’s re-elected Liberal Government frees up the State’s gun laws.
Two days before the Tasmania election, the Liberals dropped a grenade – that if they won government they would amend the tough and ineffective laws to allow farmers and sporting shooters access to semi-auto rifles and shotguns.
However the Liberal Government had been in secret discussions with farming groups and the shooting lobby for six weeks prior to the election.
The glaring elephant in the room, is the bona fides of the Port Arthur massacre. The people’s court after dissecting the overwhelming evidence to the contrary has decided Martin Bryant did not shoot any person at the Broad Arrow Café – he was miles away at the time of the shooting. His mother and two other witnesses who knew Martin confirmed this fact with investigators yet none was called to give evidence to Tasmania Police.
The so-called National Firearms Agreement has no effect in law, it is only an agreement between the States because the Commonwealth cannot legislate firearms law for the States.
If any State wishes to amend their respective gun laws they can do so with impunity. When the Queensland National Party Government in 1997 said it would not enact the pre-packaged gun laws presented by the Federal Government, PM John Howard threatened to withhold Commonwealth money from the State.
The Nationals leader Rob (Bubbles) Borbidge buckled and pushed the new laws through Parliament.
Shorten, soon to be deposed by Anthony Albanese, is barking up the wrong tree, because the Tasmania Liberals can tell him to go to hell where he belongs.
Likewise Turnbull would be a fool to intervene, but in any case there is nothing he can do. Premier Will Hodgman needs all the support he can get. Cairns News urges Tasmanian readers to phone Will Hodgman and give him support over the proposed changes to the gun laws.
He should take notice because it was the gun lobby which got his government over the line.
Yesterday, after the usual pressure from the ABC, Mr Hodgman said the amendments would be put before a committee to examine the effects and if they would contravene the national agreement.
White South African immigrants getting preference over blacks stirs-up the communists in Liberal, Labor and Greens
A demarcation dispute has arisen between members of the Australian Liberal Party Government over relaxing visa requirements for white South Africans to enter Australia.
Left-leaning Foreign Minister Julie Bishop countered the offer when centre-right Immigration Minister Peter Dutton said he would relax entry rules before black Africans murdered any more of the 30,000-strong white farming community.
Bishop’s intervention came after the United Nations insisted, when assessing immigration applications that Australia give no preferential treatment to white farmers over black African savages. White farmers have been feeding the nation’s 50 million blacks for more than a century.
It should be noted the vast majority of the nation’s 50 million blacks do not originate from there, but came from across Africa to populate the country because of its strong, white-led economic management and prosperity.
Marxist Greens leader, Richard Di Natale, the son of Italian migrants. claimed Mr Dutton was a racist for allowing white residents preference over black immigrants.
A spokesman for Peter Dutton said the Minister would be “holding his ground” because he was greatly concerned about the violence being uncovered against the farming community after the South African parliament passed a law a month ago allowing black savages to forcibly remove white farmers from their land without compensation, some held in the same family ownership for 120 years.
Already reports have surfaced of families being murdered in much the same way as Mugabe’s terrorists did after the fall of the white Rhodesian Government 39 years ago
The disgusting, racist ‘apartheid’ campaign waged against the Rhodesian Government during the 1960’s and 70’s by the UK, EU and Australia resulted in the violent deaths of thousands of white Rhodesians.
Former left-wing Australian Prime Minister Malcolm Fraser, while visiting Tennessee in 1986, was found wandering in the Admiral Benbow Inn wearing nothing but a shirt and tie and a tiny towel.
Conspiracy theories about what happened to Malcolm Fraser’s trousers even extended to Mossad’s involvement because Mr Fraser was wrecking an Israeli arms deal with South Africa.
He said at the time: “There’s nothing I can say.”
Labor leader Bill Shorten, predictably, criticised the visa deal saying there should be no preferences given to oppressed white residents.
Mr Shorten and Mr Di Natale realise they shore up their voting base by allowing more blacks into the country.
Meanwhile terrified Melbourne residents on a daily basis have to face gangs of black African thugs who have taken control of the streets unopposed by law enforcement, which insists “there are no violent gangs here.”
Cairns is the car stealing capital – 767 stolen in 2017 and 38 cars stolen in March 2018
Nearly 100 Cairns region residents fed up with spiralling juvenile crime, unanimously passed a resolution at a meeting in Woree on Saturday instructing the State Government to immediately implement the renowned Petford Farm Rehabilitation Program.
Founder of the program, Geoff Guest OAM, 91, explained to the audience how over 35 years he had successfully transformed more than 3000 troubled youths and adults into a stable lifestyle by offering a holistic solution to substance and alcohol abuse.
He said the transition to normality could not be achieved without incorporating the families of offenders, teaching them proper nutrition and that diet was as important as a loving family environment to break the cycle of anti-social behaviour and re-offending.
“At Petford over the years we taught the kids self-respect and how to respect others and by teaching them horsemanship, fencing, cattle work and tidying up after themselves then cooking at night,” Mr Guest said.
“My late wife Norma made sure there was always a good meal after a day’s work and there was no need to rely on sugar hits from soft drinks or alcohol to keep going.”
Supporting Mr Guest were Member for Kennedy Bob Katter, Member for Leichardt Warren Entsch and State Member for Hill Shane Knuth.
The former Member for Mulgrave Naomi Wilson was present and also backed Mr Guest’s strategy.
Attila Feher-Holan, the founder of the neighbourhood watch group Cairns Knights, chaired the meeting and was scathing of the four local Labor Party state politicians who did not show up.
“The disrespect shown to constituents by the Labor members has not gone unnoticed and I ask if they have any intention at all of stopping the terrible crime wave local people are experiencing,” Mr Feher-Holan said.
“I personally asked Cynthia Lui, Michael Healy, Craig Crawford and Curtis Pitt if they would attend a meeting to help fix this awful problem but only Michael Healy accepted then pulled out after the government discovered he was coming.”
Long-time Petford supporter Professor Ernest Hunter, formerly Cairns and Hinterland Hospital and Health Service and Adjunct Professor at James Cook University, explained how the Petford Program had been so successful.
“One can’t work without the other and Geoff Guest incorporated a strict health and diet regime with a remote location and did not rely on any pharmaceutical drugs or more conventional methods of rehabilitation,” Professor Hunter said.
Member for Kennedy Bob Katter told the meeting how he had sought advice from different Aboriginal groups when formulating his Relocation Sentencing policy which allows Magistrates to sentence young offenders to a remote rehabilitation facility instead of going to jail.
“What happens is amateur criminals go to detention or jail and come out as professionals,” Mr Katter said.
“Jail for young offenders is not the answer.”
Mr Guest said he had been asked by Innisfail and Townsville residents to stage further meetings because of the high crime rates in their communities.-contributed

A bill to corporatise local government
The Andrews Government has drafted the Local Government Act 2018 that has many draconian features about it. Reading the Bill indicates the following events will happen if the Bill passes through the parliament unchallenged:
- ALL local councils will become legitimised as “corporations” as representing “the third tier of government”. Our Constitution does NOT allow for this to happen; nor is it appropriate for a corporation be both a commercial profit-making enterprise and an arm of government.
- ALL Councils will be elevated to “Authority” status; meaning, they will become laws unto themselves.
- ALL councils will be able to make their own “Local Laws” (which are different to by-laws) and they will able to enforce them – even utilising the police when necessary.
- Councils will be required to bring community housing up to the standards specified in the Victorian Energy Efficiency Target 2007. This means they will send “approved officers” to people’s homes and businesses to produce a list of work required by the landowner to meet these targets for energy efficiency.
- If the landowner fails to complete the work within the given timespan, the council will then arrange for the work to be done. This could cost $$0,000’s!
- Once completed, the council gives the landowner time to pay. If he/she cannot do that, then the land is “”transferred” to the council.
- The council will then determine “market value” of the property and after any mortgage costs, encumbrances, fees and fines are deducted, many people will not see much cash remaining from the value of their former home. They could also be looking for other accommodation too.
With already corrupt councils potentially being offered so much POWER to exercise over their ratepayers, it is believed that the laws they enact will be so totalitarian that no person will have any means to object to their decisions.
Fortunately, this Draft Bill is available for public comment.
I have put together a Submission Template that exposes each council’s illegitimacy (together with other issues) and I’m seeking assistance from those who own/lease or invest in property to contact their MP’s and tell them to NOT support this Bill.
Larry Hannigan has kindly hosted for me a webpage about this matter; so I encourage you to visit the page and read it carefully, as it has extracts taken out of the proposed legislation to demonstrate how draconian this matter is.
More importantly, the webpage has a link where you can download a Submission template that I have created to assist people to make a submission

How many people know there is a ‘Bill of Rights’ bill sitting on the table in the House of Representatives in Canberra which already has survived a first reading.
It is called the Bill of Rights Act, 2017, tabled by Tasmania Independent MP, Andrew Wilkie.
According to Mr Wilkie it is a bill for an Act relating to the human rights and fundamental freedoms of all Australians and all people in Australia, and for related purposes.
This bill paves the way, setting the framework for Turnbull’s republic.
Mr Wilkie is obviously unaware we already have the inalienable Bill of Rights 1688, which cannot be altered by any parliament.
“If you were not worried before you need to be very concerned now”
The objects of this Act are:
15 (a) to promote universal respect for, and observance of, human
16 rights and fundamental freedoms for all persons without
17 discrimination; and
18 (b) to that end, to enact an Australian Bill of Rights giving effect
19 to certain provisions of:
20 (i) the International Covenant on Civil and Political Rights
21 done at New York on 16 December 1966; and
22 (ii) the International Covenant on Economic, Social and
23 Cultural Rights done at New York on 16 December
24 1966; and
25 (iii) the Convention on the Rights of the Child done at New
26 York on 20 November 1989;
27 being guided by:
28 (iv) the Declaration on the Rights of Mentally Retarded
29 Persons; and
1 (v) the Declaration on the Rights of Disabled Persons; and
2 (vi) the Declaration on the Elimination of All Forms of
3 Intolerance and of Discrimination based on Religion or
4 Belief; and
5 (c) to ensure that any person whose rights or freedoms as set out
6 in the Australian Bill of Rights are infringed by or under any
7 law in relation to which that Bill of Rights operates has an
8 effective remedy; and
9 (d) to promote, enhance and secure, as paramount objectives, the
10 freedom and dignity of the human person, equality of
11 opportunity for all persons and full and free participation by
12 all Australians in public affairs and public debate.
Australian Patriot Radio produced this podcast with Harry Palmer and Mike Holt discussing how the majority of Queenslanders do not realise they own nothing in Queensland today after Wayne Goss and Kevin Rudd manipulated the Queensland constitution to remove private land ownership to government and amend legislation at anytime to suit their power base control of you the people … and it is still LAW … Click Here to listen.
