KAP ANNOUNCES “BAT RE-STOCKING” PROPOSAL
Katter’s Australian Party (KAP) has today offered to devise a plan to safely export hundreds of thousands of Queensland flying foxes to New South Wales with no option for “return to sender”, as part of a proposed “Bat Re-Stocking Program”.
The announcement follows the news that hundreds of bats were flown on a private plane for care at Queensland’s Australia Zoo following the recent NSW bushfires, and that local populations on the ground were likely to have taken a hit during the natural disaster.
It also follows an announcement by Australia Zoo that its ‘flying fox intake’ had sky-rocketed by 750 per cent due to the effects of drought in Queensland, followed more recently by the import of bats to Queensland affected by the NSW/Victoria fires.
While obviously a tongue-in-cheek proposal that should in no way been taken too seriously, the KAP is using this opportunity to call for some common sense to be injected into the way the State Government and Queensland communities handle flying fox populations.
KAP Leader and Traeger MP Robbie Katter said for too long Brisbane had failed to acknowledge through legislation the effect huge populations of flying foxes are having on the towns they inhabit.
Regional communities across Queensland have in recent months been battling with plague proportions of flying foxes, with hundreds of thousands of the animals roosting in urban towns like Charters Towers, Townsville, Ingham, Cairns and Mount Isa at any one time.
More recently, new reports circled that SEQ was also expecting a “flying fox invasion” of upto 600,000 bats, highlighting that no community is immune to the unsustainable numbers seeking refuge in urban areas.
Mr Katter recently made the Minister for Environment and Science, Leanne Enoch, aware of the bat import situation.
He has called for the Minister to detail if the State Government supported the import of bats from interstate and also asked her to clarify if any state money had been spent on the exercise.
Mr Katter said he has no personal issue with flying foxes, but believes it is ludicrous that Queensland’s Nature Conservation Act 1992 has enshrined their rights to the point that their well-being is routinely being prioritised ahead of people.
He said the latest news of the import of bats to Queensland was a symbolic slap in the face to the communities which have been battling plague proportions of the animals for weeks, months and in some cases, years.

The Minister for Wasting Water, DAVID LITTLEPROUD, must resign
The Saltbush Club today called for the immediate resignation of Mr. David Littleproud from his position as Minister for Water on the grounds of incompetence in his management of the Murray-Darling Basin Authority.
The call was made by Mr Ron Pike, the Saltbush Club Water Adviser with a lifetime of experience and information on Murray Darling Basin water supply, storage and use.
“Under Mr. Littleproud’s stewardship this Authority has grown to be a law unto itself and is repeatedly lying to both the people and the Government. As an example; ‘we had to drain Menindee Lakes, or the water would have been lost to evaporation.’
“We now have the wicked and unjust situation where this out of control Authority is denying available water to desperate end users by claiming that they are compelled by law to release this fresh water to the sea, while farmers and Municipalities are left without water.
“In a worsening drought no one in their right mind would condone wasting fresh water to the sea, while denying the people the water they desperately need. But Mr. Littleproud is.
“This is not only unjust it is a crime against the people perpetrated by a Federal Minister.
“Given that Mr. Littleproud has several advisors, he should have been aware that the MDBA were fabricating stories, just as they now are about releases from Wyangala Dam.
“Not only are the actions of the MDBA leaving the Government with little credibility they are exposing the Government to billions of dollars in compensation for lost businesses, especially the death of permanent plantings; something that has never happened since we built the dams on our western rivers.
“David Littleproud is responsible for a Government Authority that is denying the people their most basic of rights; that is access to water. Mr. Littleproud has broken his oath of office “To well and truly serve the people of Australia.”
“David Littleproud you have broken that vow and the people no longer trust you.
You must resign now”.

Scientist Ginny Silcox joins Justin Nemos to talk about Directed Energy Weapons, the World Trade Center Towers and the California fires. This is a very interesting conversation, that deserves that one set aside some time to listen to it.
Silcox has been in electromagnetic compatibility research since the 1980s. She says when most people think about electromagnetic frequencies, they don’t tend to think about it having any physical effects. She reminds us of the old Memorex commercials, when the singer hit a note that was the same pitch as the resonant frequency of the wine glass, causing it to vibrate uncontrollably and to shatter. She says that in a nutshell, this is how the World Trade Center Towers were vaporized (!)
She reads from a science book by physicist Paul LaViolette, about how different kinds of materials respond differently to microwave frequencies and says that this explains the pronounced anomalies seen in the California fires, whereby houses were pulverized and trees directly beside them were quite unscathed.
Silcox reads from the book again, describing an experiment with a focused microwave beam and she says, “Here, I have been in the sciences for all these years and now I’m reading what they were doing with it all along that I had no knowledge of and and I can understand it and I find it thoroughly frightening…
“Basically, what I’m describing is something that can part us out, molecule by molecule.”
Silcox gets into detailed scientific descriptions of the EM spectrum and different kinds of EM and what may be happening, including the blue beams people have reported seeing in the California fires.

Phone towers maiming people with EMF radiation. New 5G network will kill
from EMR Australia – Tuesday, March 02, 2010
Warning against rolling out more towers especially 5G
What inconvenient truth led a highly-regarded radiation expert to take the law into his own hands and demolish six mobile phone stations? As he faces sentencing this month, John Patterson talks to EMR and Health about the story behind the news.
John Patterson is a pleasant, considerate and well-mannered man with an easy smile and a wicked sense of humour. He is also one of Australia’s leading radiation experts—a man who has been at the cutting edge of communications technology for the past 33 years.
Yet on 14 July 2007 John Patterson broke into a truck yard, ‘borrowed’ a former British army tank and proceeded to systematically demolish six mobile phone base station in the Sydney suburb of Mt Druit, before his vehicle stalled at the site of the seventh base station and he surrendered to police.
Why did he do it?
According to John, mobile phones and their base stations pose a devastating risk to human life, to nature and to the planet that supports it.
Background and experience
John’s unwelcome conclusion is one that he is, unfortunately, extremely well-qualified to make.
John is one of Australia’s leading radiation experts—a man who has been at the forefront of technology for more than three decades; a man with a passion for electronics.
A telecommunications engineer, John has worked with every communications technology there is. Employed by the Overseas Telecommunications Commission (OTC), Telecom and Telstra, he built, tested and commissioned communications systems and completed over 54 engineering courses in order to keep up to date with the newest technologies. John was one of Australia’s leading radiation measurers, a trouble-shooter and the man who found the solutions to the toughest problems.
As early as 1978 OTC trained John in ‘radiation awareness’ and advised him to keep a diary of his experiences with the cutting edge radiation-emitting technology with which he worked. At that stage, no one knew what the effects would be.
All too soon John was to find out.
As his career progressed, John became a very sick man. ‘The more I was exposed to, the sicker I became,’ he said. The crunch came after two mobile phone base stations were installed—one on either side of his workplace. By that stage, John was having regular heart attacks which continued for four years.
In his impeccably-maintained diaries, John detailed the health effects that he observed in himself and other workers, many of whom later died. ‘Telecom had a very high number of suicides,’ he recalls.
The symptoms he observed, in order of occurrence, included:
- short-term memory loss (including momentary lapses)
- long-term memory loss
- involuntary contraction of muscles and tendons
- chronic fatigue
- problems with balance—at first walking, then riding
- sore neck muscles
- jaw out of alignment
- vertebrae in shoulders and bottom four vertebrae out of alignment—caused by cramping of muscles
- misco-ordination between eye and muscles
- reduction in elasticity in body, especially throat, resulting in a ‘choking’ effect when swallowing
- thyroid problems
- heart problems (including heart attacks)
- stomach valve not opening properly, leading to heart burn and nausea
- changes to gait
- numbing of the skin
- black rings around the iris
- kidney problems
- liver problems—leading to skin problems, rashes and pimples that don’t heal. (John saw at least 1000 workers with similar skin problems.)
- inappropriate emotional responses.
The concern for John is that the symptoms he once saw only in exposed workers, he’s now seeing in members of the public—including very young children.
Mobile phone radiation
John Patterson does not own a mobile phone—nor do many people who’ve spent time talking with him. However, he does own an impressive array of technical equipment with which he is able to measure the effects of this and similar technologies, which puts him in a strong position to offer advice.
Mobile phone technology uses a combination of frequencies that John was taught were too dangerous to be used together. It was designed to create new channels for interstate communications and undersea cables, says John.
‘It was never meant to be sprayed out in a circle.’
As early as 1978 John was warned by OTC that it could take four days to recover from one exposure to digital radio waves. Yet consider the number and frequency of exposures one commonly receives today!
Analogue phones affect only part of the body, he says, but digital phone signals affect the whole body.
According to John, mobile phone signals diminish the ability of pharmaceuticals to work and they carry disease.
For people wanting to know whether mobile phone radiation is affecting them, John suggests two quick tests:
‘When you are in a room with a mobile phone, walk outside and notice the change’. This is radio awareness which John was taught in the 1970s by OTC.
Try adding a list of numbers (or, if you are able, translating a document from one language to another). Notice what happens to your concentration when the mobile phone is switched on and signalling. Read the rest of this entry
“A true story from the heart of Queensland”
“The farmers of Queensland would like to tell you a true story” – A must view video how this unchallenged dictatorial government is poised to destroy farming in Queensland.
What is the issue?
On the 1st of May the Palaszczuk Government may rush flawed legislation through before MP’s know the truth
- Locks up 1.7 million hectares of developed farmland with no compensation
- Bans all future agricultural development in Qld by removing agriculture as a purpose under the planning act
- Severely restricts other essential management activities like reducing encroachment or controlling woody weeds.
Why has the Government proposed these changes?
The Palaszczuk Government promised the Greens to toughen the rules on the farmers of Qld in return for preferences at the last election.
The Queensland Government has admitted it has not done any analysis of the social and economic impacts of the laws, and had no intention of doing so.

Research and warnings about health issues caused or increased from exposure to cell phone and wireless WiFi radiation and other sources of Electrical Pollution (Electrosmog) are nothing new. In 2010, NBCNews.com posted its article, “Is Electrosmog Harming Our Health?” According to it:
- Electrical hypersensitivity (EHS) is becoming more widespread.
- Experts say up to 3% of all people are clinically hypersensitive (to sources of Electrosmog), as many as 1/3 of us to a lesser degree.
- Electrical pollution is increasing dramatically.
There is diagnostic testing available if you are concerned that WiFi and Electrosmog exposure may be affecting you or someone you love.
ElectroSensitivity actually has a long history. It was originally referred to as “Microwave Sickness” when it was discovered in the 1950s.
ElectroSensitivity or “Microwave Sickness” is cumulative.
Electrosensitivity is not like an allergy you are born with; it is an illness that builds up over increased time and radiation exposure.
Just as we cannot yet explain why some individuals will die from second-hand smoke and others can live a long life smoking 2 packs a day, we cannot explain why some individuals react to wireless radiation. (Source: Vitality Magazine)
So why aren’t more people being made aware of ElectroSensitivity or Microwave Sickness?
- Outdated legislation and money. Doesn’t is always seem to be about money?
- “The Precautionary Principle” is not being followed with sources of WiFi and Electrosmog.
Many scientists believe that all sources of cell phone and wireless WiFi radiation should be classified as a carcinogen.
Manuals for personal devices such as cell phones, iPads, WiFi routers, activity trackers, etc. include guidelines and warnings. If we all read them thoroughly, we probably wouldn’t these devices as much – if at all. We’d probably keep them away from our children. This has been advised for several years already anyway by various sources including Dr. Oz.
Research confirms that exposure to cell phone and wireless WiFi radiation along with Electromagnetic Fields has a cumulative toxic effect when combined with other toxins. Most of us would agree that the world was already pretty polluted before new technology provided us with so many new sources of WiFi and Electrosmog over the last 20+ years.
These ridiculous new marketing campaigns for “The Race for 5G,” “The Internet of Things (IoT), “Smart Cities,” Automated Vehicles, Artificial Intelligence (AI) need to at least be put on pause also until we find a way to make all of this safe.
Here’s a list of symptoms of ElectroSensitivity or “Microwave Sickness”:
- ADD/ADHD, and Other Learning Disabilities
- Asthma, Coughing and Other Respiratory Issues
- Behavioral and Mood Issues, Changes, Anxiety, Depression, Panic Attacks
- Blood Pressure Abnormalities
- Cardiac Issues, Heart Arrhythmia, Heart Attacks, Palpitations
- Confusion, Inability to Concentrate
- Chemical Sencinogen,sitivities
- Dental Issues
- Diabetes, Blood Sugar Fluctuations and Conditions
- Diarrhea, Nausea and Other Digestive and Intestinal Issues
- Disorientation, Dizziness, Vertigo, and Balance Issues
- Endocrine and Thyroid Issues
- Food Sensitivities
- Hair Loss or Thinning
- Hearing Difficulties, Sensitivity to Noise, Ringing in Ears/Tinnitus
- Headaches, Migraines, Seizures, Strokes
- Hormonal Changes, Issues
- Insomnia, Changes in Sleep Habits
- Joint, Muscle, Nerve Pain and Inflammation
- Memory Loss
- Muscular Weakness and Failure
- Nose Bleeds
- “Rapid Aging Syndrome”
- Sensitivity to Light
- Sinus Issues, Allergies and Infections
- Skin Issues, Rashes, etc.
- Unexplained weight loss or gain
- Urinary Issues, Frequency, Incontinence, Infections
- Vision Issues and Poor Eye Health

GetUp gears up to stop legislation designed to get rid of them. Campaign starts to ensure the ALP opposes it
Great, at last somebody has found some political guts to get rid of GetUp. George Soros, their main financier, will be livid; he has been funding terror campaigns world -wide including the ragtag Marxist GetUp mob in Australia.
George was found contributing towards Hilary’s anti-Trump campaign and Obama’s 30,000 strong mob of mad women and malcontent men trying to usurp the legitimate election of Trump by staging women’s marches consisting the communist, atheist, anti-family horde of dykes, trannies and a few poofter terrorists thrown in.
Then there also is the other mob of anarchists Soros is funding in a direct attempt to overthrow Trump and his far stronger tens of million supporters. GetUp features in similar anti-Christian, anti-social activities across Australia usurping traditional ways of life practiced by the majority of Australians.
Look at what this bunch of anarchists did to Tony Abbott.
It propagates phony global warming and climate change theories when we are actually heading towards an ice age. Getup and the terrorist George Soros in Australia? No thanks!
For the first time I would support Liberal legislation designed to rid Australia of a terrorist organisation.
EHP calls tenders to bulldoze huge dam wall near Cooktown; 30,000 tonnes of potential sediment runoff
The fallout from the 2016 acquisition of Springvale Station at Lakeland continues after the Queensland Department of Environment and Heritage Protection called for tenders to demolish a 1200 megalitre irrigation dam on the property.
Last year the EPH was caught out when a neighbour complained of long silt plumes found in the permanent East Normanby River after the department began siphoning water from the $400,000 dam into the river.
The river eventually drains into Princess Charlotte Bay and onto the Great Barrier Reef.
The water was left to run across 150 metres of soil between the dam bank and the river, gouging one metre channels in the earth creating many hundreds of tonnes of sediment which flowed into the river.
A local engineer estimated the wall would contain 30,000 cubic metres of compacted earth, when removed could eventually end up in the river system.
The hydrologist who designed the dam for the previous owners said the dam wall was sound and in no way would have breached after heavy rain events.
The EHP Minister at the time, Stephen Miles, claimed the design of the dam’s construction was unknown and therefore considered the wall “unsafe.”
Refuting the Minister’s assertion, the hydrologist, Geoff Benjamin, of Mareeba, said the wall remained intact and sound after 300 mm fell in one night, before the wall construction was finally completed.
“The dam was designed with an effective spillway and fish-way, however construction work was forced to cease due to early wet-season rains,” Mr Benjamin said.
“Although I did not visit the site when work ceased, I believe that the embankment height was about 1 to 1.5 m below the intended final design elevation.
“At this elevation a natural depression on the eastern side provides a broad, natural spillway so that the embankment would not be compromised in the event of intense storm run-off; which is in fact, exactly what occurred when Cyclone Etta, I think, passed straight over the property in January 2014, reportedly dropping about 300 mm of rain over-night!
“The statement about ‘unacceptable safety risk’ would therefore seem totally baseless. Unfortunately such uninformed, alarmist comments seem to be what we’ve come to expect from this particular Minister.”
Defending the decision to demolish the valuable water asset, home to innumerable birdlife and other aquatic wildlife, the EHP claimed the design was unknown, which has been ridiculed by Mr Benjamin.
“Likewise the assertion that ‘the status of its design and capacity is unknown’ is inaccurate, since I provided details of the design to one of the Minister’s departmental officers not long after EHP acquired the Springvale property,” Mr Benjamin said.
The EHP claimed it acquired Springvale to prevent sediment runoff into the Great Barrier Reef catchment, however the Chief Scientist for Queensland, Dr Geoff Garrett, told a meeting of landowners at Lakeland prior to the property purchase there was no measurable sediment runoff from the Upper Normanby catchment.
Minister Miles ignored this advice and continued with the purchase, wasting $7 million of taxpayers funds and removed 4000 head of cattle from the local economy.
The property is being divided into yet more unnecessary national park with the balance being given to an indigenous group.
Tenders to decommission the dam were called on January 24 and will close on March 5, 2018.
Be Careful What you Wish For
In today’s crazy world, western politicians are wasting billions of tax-payer dollars force-feeding costly unreliable green energy in the bizarre belief that this will somehow change Earth’s climate.
Even more incredible, they fear global warmth and seem hell-bent on creating global cooling. They should study climate history. It is snow and ice, cold dry air and carbon dioxide starvation we need to fear, not a warm, moist, fertile, bountiful atmosphere.
Climate change is natural and unstoppable.
Just 20,000 years ago, Earth was in one of its recurring glacial phases. A thick massive ice sheet smothered Canada, Alaska, Iceland, Greenland, North Asia and Europe as far south as London. Much of the animal and plant life of the previous warm era was extinguished. Even in warmer lands not covered by the ice sheet, plants suffered as the cold oceans removed moisture and carbon dioxide plant food from the atmosphere.
Then, because of changing cycles in Earth’s orbit and tilt, reinforced by changing solar cycles, the sun warmed the frozen lands. The great ice sheets melted, sea levels rose and the warming oceans expelled moisture and CO2 plant food into the atmosphere. Plant life recovered. Tundra, forests, grasslands and herbivores advanced towards the pole and fish became abundant in the shallow seas that flooded coastal plains. Hunters, herders, farmers and fishermen followed the food.
Human population increased greatly. They gave thanks for the warmth, and worshipped the sun.
But the peak of the modern warm era is past, and the natural cycles controlling global temperatures are pointing downwards.
Only an idiot with a death wish for life on Earth would attempt to accelerate our inevitable descent into the next ice age.
Luckily, their costly war on warmth is totally futile, but their war on carbon energy will prove tragically misguided in the cold times ahead.

Letter to the Editor
I don’t want to tell anyone any more bad news this year. It can wait until 2018.
I want my grandchildren and great grandchildren to remain innocent, to believe that the world is a wonderful and a safe place, where all their dreams will come true, where there is no bad government, a mainstream media and that reports the truth, that they can rely on their education system that they received, the established medical system, and that all is well, that if they work hard and do the right things that all their dreams will be accomplished.
I was born in Australia’s outback one month after the bombing of London by Hitler, and saw the end of WWll, though I was not affected too much because my mother grew all our food and my dad worked in the mines. Millions died fighting for freedom and their countries. The world that we had after the second world war, was one where everyone was so poor, so damaged, that they wanted nothing but good things for themselves and everyone else. The children had no shoes and had to stand on sticks in the school playground so they would not burn the soles of their feet. Most of the girls had shoes, but many boys did not. Children were lucky if they had 3 sets of clothes to change into, and only one toy was given for Christmas, and if you were very lucky you got another one for your birthday. We didn’t know that we were poor, until we grew up and learned about it, because everyone was in the same situation. And so everyone worked hard, built a country that was, and is the envy of most others, a generous country where the rich and the workers provided enough tax, to a system that would provide help to the underprivileged and help to the widows. We were taught not to speak of politics or religion, because they would cause arguments.
Most immigrants wanted to forget where they came from. The memories of the war horrors, memories too painful that they were tucked into the back of their minds never to be spoken of. And so a country developed where we trusted the government, we trusted the authorities, we trusted each other, we trusted the churches, and we lost all knowledge of our political system, how it worked and our spiritual understanding of why knowing the difference between right and wrong was important to the survival of any civilization. The agenda was set in the 1970’s to destroy the family unit by giving children more rights than their parents, and parents taught to put their own desires and happiness before all else. Some were sensible enough to resist, but others were not.
In our ignorance we lost control of our destiny. We gave our rights over to the atheist United Nations, who had a different agenda than those who went to war to protect our freedom, our sovereignty, our families, our children, our land, our industries, our homes and our survival. The people lost their constitutional rights, their Constitution was corrupted,
and the corruption sealed in the courts with judges on the same agenda as the authoritarian New World Order. Australia lost their inherited religion, their beliefs and their soul.
Powerful pharmaceutical cartels took over the health of the nation, trained the doctors, rewarded the universities and government officials, so that laws were introduced that had no bearing on good health, but were focused on power for a few, and financial rewards for those who co-operated with the population reduction agenda of the New World Order. Many had no idea what was happening, others did not care and those who could see the truth were labelled “Conspiracy theorists”.
And so we now find ourselves in the position that the “state” has taken control of all aspects of our lives, our freedom of choice, our most precious gift from God, is almost gone. That is why the “Great Division” is taking place, a heavenly and spiritual movement, in total opposition to the “one world agenda of the United Nations” and those who wish to control a world made in their own godless image. This is not a division between races or different countries, it is a division between good and evil. Please meditate on this to see what part you play in the destiny of the planet. No matter what age you are, you are more important than you ever imagined. Everyone plays a part in the survival or the destruction of the earth.

“Climate change is by no means the sole or even the most significant
symptom of the changing interests and values of the West. Still, only
societies with high levels of cultural amnesia could have made such a religion
out of it. Beware the pronouncement, “the science is settled”. It’s the spirit of
the Inquisition, the thought-police down the ages. Almost as bad is the claim
that “99 per cent of scientists believe” as if scientific truth is determined by
votes rather than facts.”
