The United States National Security Advisor under President Barack Obama, Susan Rice, requested that GCHQ continue its pre-election spying on President Trump, his offices, and his residence at 725 Fifth Avenue in New York—an illegal act, but one supported fully by her ‘boss’, Barack Hussein Obama.
In fact, closed door testimony and corroborating e-mails ordered disclosed by a court under a Freedom of Information Act request, a senior FBI agent confirmed that ‘The White House is running this.’
Clintons Collude to Frame Trump
Hillary had to become president to prevent investigation of other crimes. She and Obama signed off on a deal to sell the Russians roughly 20% of U.S. uranium stores to be used for nuclear weapons in a pay-to-play scheme with Russia.
Her husband, Bill, made US$1/2 million for speeches in Russia, met with Putin on it, and their Clinton Foundation was paid $145 million by the same parties to the illegal transaction.
With but one exception, the Mainstream Media completely covered up or ignored the Uranium One scandal, even though it may be the greatest act of treason in my home nation’s history.
Hannity Attacked for Truthing
Only Australia’s News Corp allowed its U.S. affiliate, FOX News, to cover it, which caused an immediate campaign of terror against News Anchor, Sean Hannity, for doing so.
He was smeared publicly, received death threats, and shrill voices from inside and outside government called for his dismissal and ruin.
FOX News anchor, Sean Hannity was virulently attacked by others in his profession as part of the Clinton/Obama cover-up. They all remain silent on Uranium One.
Possible Treason from the Obama Administration
But now we have perhaps a greater act of treason—by the same bad actors. We can prove that the Obama Administration used foreign spies and agencies to begin what was nothing short of an attempted coup.
They intended to:
1) defeat President Trump using a knowingly false and salacious ‘dossier’ paid for by the Democrat party and Hillary Clinton’s presidential campaign employing foreign spies and Russian collaboraters to produce it
2) in the unlikely event that Trump won, take him down with a FBI/CIA fabricated hoax about ‘Russian collusion’ — something that the Obama White House, The Democratic National Committee, Australian diplomats and ASIS, the British Government, the Clinton campaign, GCHQ, the CIA, FBI, NSA and Russian sources, actually did, while pasting the narrative on their opposition—the man they claimed was ‘too dangerous’ to be President— Donald J. Trump.
In closing, I wish to examine that promoted narrative that President Trump is ‘dangerous’ as the world’s media has sycophantically fallen in line with that story—and that is likely to be all you have heard. But as most such co-ordinated narratives fail upon the slightest inspection, so does this one.
Trump Boosts the Economy – By Taking the Government’s Boot off its Neck
First let’s look at the economy. Using the most rudimentary of economic principles, President Trump turned a stagnant mess into the most vibrant in the world in just two years.
No nation in history has ever taxed and regulated itself into prosperity—a perfect description of President Obama’s failed eight years at the the helm—and all President Trump had to do was leave more money in the people’s pockets and slash regulations.
For every new hindrance bureacracy put in the way of success in the form of new regulations, Trump’s team cut 22 others—and made it a rule that for every new one, at least two had to go.
Tens of thousands of stifling and mostly stupid rules went away over night, and the multiplier effect on the dollars left in the public’s hands through massive tax reductions immediately started working.
A dollar left in the hands of those who earned it, tends to benefit the economy in a roughly four-fold effect. I buy a new refrigerator with my extra money. The person who sold it to me opens another store.
The new store hires more people, and so on. A $250 billion dollar tax cut can be expected to create a trillion in new activity due to the multiplier effect—ultimately creating even greater tax revenue for government than before even at a higher rate. And guess what, it has.
Money stolen by government in the form of new taxes—like the Obamcare tax, for example—had a negative multiplier effect of roughly 1.3. A dollar taken, not only misses out on the upside, but puts a drag on existing economic activity.
The economy of the United States has added $9 trillion in value since the President made these simple moves.
Today Cairnsnews received information from a One Nation source in NSW that the wife of Aljazeera Muslim spy Rodger Muller had been charged by police with 46 fraud offences.
Muller is the scumbag who released the covert footage of One Nation members Steve Dickson and James Ashby aided and abetted by the left-wing of the ABC Four Corners program which broadcast the private conversations of private people at a social gathering, being representatives of a political party.
In talks with the National Rifle Association in the US, the two One Nation members were secretly recorded by Muller while asking the NRA for a donation. Big deal. Its a shame they didn’t get it. They might have been able to get rid of the ABC and Greens.
During WW2 spying for the enemy attracted the death penalty in Commonwealth countries, US, Germany and Japan. This grub should get the same treatment.
If Mrs Muller has had her fingers in a till somewhere then ten to one her husband Rodger would be aware of her crimes.
Aljazeera is a company owned by the Saudi Government therefore the operative Mueller is an agent of a foreign government and should be prosecuted by Australian authorities as such.
The hypocritical outpouring of rage by politicians is remarkable because the Liberal and Labor Parties get millions in donations every year from international banks, insurance companies, mining companies, media conglomerates(Newsltd) and a host of other donors.
Not forgetting the communist, activist organisation GetUp started in Australia by Labor Opposition Leader Bill Shorten on whose board he used to sit.
GetUp is well known for getting substantial financial support from the left wing money market manipulator and billionaire George Soros.
Soros and Hilary Clinton have financed a number of dissident mobs in the US trying to bring down President Trump.
Former CIA Officer: Christchurch Shooting Smells like a ‘False Flag’
GreekNewsOnDemand.com comments: This like all the other “shootings,” was, indeed,…FAKE, it was a FALSE FLAG meant to serve as…YET ANOTHER PRETEXT by which to…DISARM GOOD, LAW-ABIDING CITIZENS!!! Click HERE and HERE for more from us at GreekNewsOnDemand.com.
Former CIA officer Robert David Steele warns that the Christchurch mosque shooting bears the hallmarks of a classic ‘false flag’ operation.
Go here for more disturbing international analysis: https://off-guardian.org/2019/03/27/lone-wolf-myth-covers-up-possible-mossad-role-in-new-zealand-terrorist-attack/#comments
In an interview with Tehran Times, Steele claims the shooting was orchestrated by the shadow government as part of a plan to disarm the general population and ignite World War III.
- You are well known as a former spy, and you have also said many times on the public record that you managed a false flag operation for the Central Intelligence Agency (CIA). You have also written three books and two chapters on specific false flag operations – False Flag Attacks – Tool of the Deep State,9/11 Truth, Sandy Hook Truth, Orlando Atrocity, andParis 11/13. In brief, what is a false flag attack?
- The term originated in maritime warfare, where pirates as well as countries such as Spain and France, would fly the flag of their prey so they could sail closer and mount a surprise attack. The term today means nothing more or less than “not as it appears.” This means that the event did not happen the way the government says it did; it was not carried out for the reasons the government says it was; and both the attacker and the victims are not as they appear. In the USA most attackers are patsies, some mind-controlled, and most victims are crisis actors or paid locals who are then sworn to secrecy using national security warrants that threaten them with life in prison if they tell the truth about the event.
- The attack on a mosque in New Zealand by an alleged white supremacist appears to have many questionable aspects. In broad terms, what do you think happened?
- A careful analysis of all available information, including a complete technical as well as military analytic review of the full video tape, suggests that this was a false flag event. We need Muslim and US white nationalist investigators on the ground to determine if anyone actually died, all indications are that no one died, this appears to have been a completely staged event managed by the Mossad in complicity with corrupt New Zealand police and national authorities, and corrupt Freemasons. Let me point out that most Freemasons are honest decent people. I believe the Chinese Freemasons particularly are intent on the future of Freemasonry to be about the good of all, and this apparent crime against humanity by New Zealand Freemasons should see them cast out of the international order.
- Before I ask for specific reasons why you challenge the official narrative – that a lone white man killed at least fifty Muslims and wounded at least 50 more mostly Muslims – let me ask about motive. Assuming you are correct and this was a staged event followed by immediate global censorship to block common sense challenges, what was the purpose of this event?
- I am so glad you asked that, because my answer could help to unite Muslims everywhere with white nationalists in the USA and perhaps in other countries. This event was designed with two objectives. The first is to demonize white nationalists who support President Donald Trump, and to set the stage for disarming them in violation of the US Constitution by using a flood of new “red flag” laws that the Deep State is attempting to push through in the USA. Just as the Zionists assassinated John F. Kennedy Junior to clear the way for Hillary Clinton to buy her Senate seat in New York, they are seeking here to help the Democrats defeat President Trump in 2020. My colleague Scott Bennett, a former US Army psychological warfare officer, has published a useful analysis of objectives and tactics for this event.
In New Zealand, where the government is a mix of good – criticizing Zionist Israel – and bad – seeking to confiscate weapons – this false flag event is clearly being used as a deception to justify the disarming of the public.
The second objective is to set the stage for World War III. I will predict right now that at least two Muslim mind-control patsies will murder – for real – at least 20 kindergarten children in the USA immediately before Syria launches its promised attack to remove the Zionists from the Golan Heights where oil has been discovered. The Zionists are desperate to keep the Golan Heights and to draw the USA into a Middle Eastern general war. False flag operations as well as the bribery and blackmail of most US Members of Congress and key Senior Executive Service officials is how they get their way.
Let me say very clearly that I believe that this event, for the first time in modern history, gives white nationalists in the USA, and Muslims world-wide, a foundation for coming together against Zionist Israel. I want to see a Muslim investigative team in New Zealand immediately, and I want the exposure of this atrocity to bring down the government of New Zealand and force President Donald Trump to honor his campaign promise to fully disclose the who, how, what, and why of 9/11, which will end the reign of terror by Zionists in the USA. If invited, I would be honored to donate my time and join the team, I am quite certain I can extract the truth from the alleged shooter within 24 hours. Sadly, I would not be surprised to see the alleged shooter die in the next few days, allegedly by his own hand, to silence him forever.
- What is a “red flag” law?
- Thank you for asking. A “red flag” law is a very unconstitutional law that is being passed by US states that do not believe in the US Constitution and the right to bear arms. In Maryland a man was assassinated by police recently when they went to confiscate his weapons without notice. A red flag law allows anyone – someone you owe money to, for example – to tell the police that they feel “threatened” by you, and this – without due process, without a judge, without a hearing – allows the police to demand your guns. If someone wanted to assassinate me, arranging for a “red flag” report so that I am disarmed first by the police, without actual just cause, would be the perfect preamble.
- Isn’t it far-fetched to think that Muslims themselves would participate in a false flag event desecrating their own mosque?
- You raise a very important point, and this is one of the reasons I want a Muslim investigative team on the ground as soon as possible. In my experience most Muslims are very eager to accommodate the authorities and demonstrate that they have assimilated and are loyal to their adopted country. I strongly suspect the participants were given incentives they could not refuse and their participation was demanded as a condition of their continuing to enjoy unencumbered residency in New Zealand.
- List for us the anomalies – the clear indications that this was a false flag event.
- My list is drawn from both my own viewing of the movie, which is clearly full of special effects such as bullet casings that “disappear” and do not hit the ground, and the works of Gordon Duff, Kevin Barrett, James Fetzer as well as Baldrmedia and William Craddick. I will divide my list into event anomalies and contextual anomalies.
- These are clearly toy guns firing air and not ejecting casings or firing real bullets. In the video the bullet casings were added after the fact as a special effect.
- With the exception of the alleged dead by the front door, who appear to have been staged beforehand, none of those allegedly killed in the video fall in spastic shock as real wounded do, and there are no blood splatters. Some of those lying dead are not actually shot in the video. Indeed, the shooter exits the mosque and then returns, this time we see some rather amateurish blood evidence, as if he had to leave so the special effects crew could come in.
- The piles of bodies appear to have been there prior to the gunman entering. They are all in very unnatural positions, and interestingly, not a single one is face up, useful if you want to conceal all their identities.
- Shots fired from a shotgun inside the car do not blow out the front windshield.
- All traffic is blocked from the street during the event, as if the police had roadblocks set up.
- The police do not arrive officially until 36 minutes after the first shot, never mind that their nearest station is two minutes away from the first mosque.
- The video shows clear signs of having been technically altered, including the addition of bullet casings, after the fact, never mind the reality that the shooter was quickly arrested and had no time to edit anything.
- The individual either is not who they say he is, or he is much older than they claim. Gordon Duff has documented his family history and it leads back to Zionist Israel in multiple ways.
- The individual received an “inheritance” when he lost his family, a common Mossad technique for picking up promising orphaned males for mind-control projects, and spent years traveling including North Korea, China, Afghanistan, Pakistan, Turkey, and Syria and in training in Zionist Israel.
- The shooter allegedly drove past at least two police stations enroute from the first to the second mosque.
- Video exists of at least two others shooters, and evidence exists of at least four women in a tour group that appear to have been a Mossad support cell.
- Government claims that this individual was not on their radar are a clear lie. He was a known shooter in the Brice Rifle Club catering to military shooters and is known to have visited countries of concern including North Korea.
- He is known by Turkey to have entered that country intent on carry out an assassination or some form of terror attack. Alone among all Muslim nations, Turkey has a team on the way to New Zealand where I expect they will be denied access to the prisoner and the mosques in fear of their quickly seeing this for what it is – a false flag provocation.
- The government of New Zealand has entered into a censorship panic, and in the USA the Zionist- controlled social media notably Facebook and Twitter, are actively censoring the video particularly, and skeptical comments generally. The video, intended by its originators to defame white nationalists and anger Muslims, has clearly become a liability because watching it one is quickly convinced this is a false flag event – not what the government claims it to be.
If 50 people prove to be dead and another 50 wounded, which I do not believe, this makes it certain that there were multiple shooters and raises the possibility of dead being brought in from morgues around the country to build up the body count. One man with several magazines cannot, under any possible circumstances, do the claimed damages.
The facts behind Aboriginal recognition and Clinton’s insidious influence over indigenous land owners claiming 60 per cent of Australian land area
from Gil May
Why have Australian governments tipped money into Hillary Clinton’s Clinton Foundation helping to kill our coal industry? That it gave Julia Gillard a job and effectively a platform to continually spruik Hillary Clinton for president shows just how this very dodgy Foundation works.
The Australian taxpayer shovelled at least $88 million into the Clinton Foundation and associated entities from 2006 to 2014, reaching a peak of $10.3 million in 2012-13, Gillard’s last year in office.
On the Clinton Foundation website, AusAID and the Commonwealth of Australia score separate entries in the $10 million-plus group of donors, one rung up from American teacher unions.
In 2009-10 Kevin Rudd handed over another $10 million to the foundation for climate research, part of $300 million he squandered on a Global Carbon Capture and Storage Institute.
Gillard also donated $300 million of our money to the Clinton-affiliated Global Partnership for Education.
Lo and behold, she became chairman in 2014 and has been actively promoting Clinton as president ever since — in a campaign video last December slamming Trump, in opeds trumpeting the next woman president and in appearances with Clinton spruiking girls’ education.
The Abbott government topped up the left-wing organisation’s coffers with another $140 million in 2014, bringing total Australian largesse to $460 million, according to a press release from Foreign Minister Julie Bishop.
And yet, apart from the beautiful friendship with Gillard, what did Australia get from the Clintons for all that cash?
A whole lot of trouble is what.
Wikileaks emails released at the time shows that Australian green groups have been secretly funded to destroy our coal industry by environmental activists connected to the Clinton campaign.
The email account of Clinton’s campaign chairman John Podesta reveals extraordinary details of the sabotage of the $16 billion Adani coalmine in Queensland, which has damaged Australia’s national interest and denied cheap electricity to millions of poor Indians.
Last August John Hepburn, former Greenpeace activist and founder of Australian anti-coal group the Sunrise Project, sent a crowing email to his American paymasters, the Sandler Foundation, which is also a major donor to the Clinton Foundation. (Founder Herb Sandler and mate George Soros funded another Clinton-aligned progressive group, the Centre for American Progress, previously chaired by Podesta.)
“The Adani Carmichael mine and the whole Galilee Basin fossil fuel industrial complex is in its death throes,” Hepburn wrote in the email forwarded to Podesta.
“I am going to buy a few bottles of bubbly for a celebration with the (Environmental Defenders Office) legal team, our colleagues at GetUp, Greenpeace, 350.org, ECF, Australian Youth Climate Coalition, Mackay Conservation Group, Market Forces and the brilliant and tireless Sunrise team.”
In another email forwarded to Podesta, Hepburn panics about a then Abbott government inquiry into environmental charities and discusses hiding Sunrise’s sources of funding to safeguard its charitable tax status.
Hepburn boasts about the latest legal blow to Adani, when the Federal Court overturned its approval and the Commonwealth Bank quit the project.
In it he now wants to “escalate the campaign towards the other 3 big Australian banks”.
And he mocks miners who “try to claim that there is some kind of foreign-funded and tightly orchestrated conspiracy to systematically destroy the Australian coal industry. (I seriously don’t know where they get these wacky ideas from!)”
The Break-up of Australia: The Real Agenda behind Aboriginal Recognition.
As if it’s not bad enough that foreign-funded activists are meddling with our largest export earner, Podesta’s emails also detail their insidious influence on indigenous land owners who blocked the Adani mine using powerful native title rights.
This alliance of green groups with native title owners is a frightening development detailed in a new book by historian Keith Windschuttle, The Break-up of Australia: The Real Agenda behind Aboriginal Recognition.
He reveals the imminent expansion of native title claims, either approved or quietly being processed, stretch across a whopping 60 per cent of the Australian continent, an area twice the size of Western Europe.
Already 6000sq km of the Kidman cattle empire in the Kimberley has been given, via native title, to green activists to be converted from productive cattle country to a wildlife conservation area.
“In return, the Yulumbu people get a paltry $50,000 a year royalty,” Windschuttle writes.
“As a flora and fauna sanctuary it is economically defunct for the foreseeable future.”
At worst, writes Windschuttle, the mooted referendum for indigenous constitutional recognition, proposed by Gillard in 2012, could pave the way for a separate Aboriginal state on native title land, funded by taxation, royalties and lease payments — passive welfare in another guise.
At the very least, the alliance between foreign-funded green groups and indigenous owners gives environmentalists the opportunity to take whole swathes of Australia out of the productive economy and shut down industries they don’t like, from coal mines in Queensland to cattle farms in Western Australia.
Thanks for nothing, Hillary and Julia.
As the Clinton Fund is now under investigation in the US, what has the Australian government done to recover our money?
Many people worked hard to pay in taxes, that would have gone a long way to building new dams for our drought stricken farmers or new hospitals.

|OBSERVERS suspect George W. Bush could face charges of treason in front of a military tribunal and a possible death sentence after a note left his wife Laura and brother Jeb in a state of shock at his father George H. W. Bush’s (senior’s) funeral on December 5.
A series of videos at the Bush senior funeral clearly show how the former presidents, vice-presidents and others of the US political establishment received unexpected envelopes carrying as-yet unknown but obviously shocking news.
Cardigan Jones of the RedPillBook channel has compiled three of the best commentaries on the video.
Trump’s Executive Order of December 2017 “blocking the property of persons involved in serious human rights abuse or corruption” means the Bush, Clinton and Obama families are now firmly in the sights of the “covert” military campaign behind the Trump administration to root out and prosecute the corrupt US “deep state” apparatus and its treasonous agenda to “globalize” America.
The first to display open-mouthed shock after opening the envelopes were Obama’s Vice President Joe Biden and his wife Jill.
Hillary Clinton read her’s with steely resolve and only revealed an uncharacteristic grimace while presidents Bill Clinton and Barack Obama appeared to be in some sort of denial.
Trump made it clear at the signing of the Executive Order that human trafficking was a major target of his administration.
The Clinton Foundation has been accused of trafficking Haitian children while Hillary herself is rumoured to have been caught on video in acts of satanic cannibalism involving a child.
The long-running “QAnon” or “Q” coded messages coming from within the Trump administration have long warned that the hammer is coming down on this “sick” deep state elite, whose activities have long been chronicled by numerous independent research websites such as Abel Danger. “Q” has been warning of The Storm coming to Washington, and it appears it has arrived.
Don’t fall afoul of Clintons or they will ‘turn off your chip’
by Alex Bruce
The zombies in our governments and in the mainstream media are observably controlled, whether through bribery, blackmail or both.
If the film, ‘The Spider’s Web’ details the rise of secrecy jurisdictions that have allowed entities to hide their ill-gotten assets in offshore banks, this interview between Douglas Gabriel and Michael McKibben charts the provenance of the Federal Public Key Infrastructure Architecture (FPKIA) of encryption and certificates, which has facilitated total surveillance and the power to blackmail anybody worth blackmailing.
McKibben, Founder of Leader Technologies has been engaged in massive forensic research to produce indictable evidence for their case against Facebook. Several times along the way, they’ve been floored by their discoveries about how the world actually works, in the spheres of high finance, governments and telecommunications.
A recent finding has left him particularly flabbergasted: Hillary Clinton and her cronies have access to all of the digital keys for all transactions on the planet. In other words, unless you can build a new Internet, you – and say, your cryptocurrencies, for example – are accessible by them. This is literally how they can (and do) “turn off your chip”, in the words of the late Aaron Russo.
It started back in the 1980s, while Hillary was a patent attorney at the Rose Law Firm, which for some odd reason represented the patent claims of many of the entities who would become today’s Tech Giants. (That’s a long story that I’ll attempt to unpack in future posts).
Focusing back on the fundamental encryption keys used on the Internet: McKibben says that back in 1993, the Clinton Administration began giving these backdoor encryption keys to the FBI. He says, “By that I mean, anytime you connect from one computer to another, those computers exchange keys and without those keys, you can’t encrypt or decrypt the signal coming from one machine to another.
“So literally, these keys are used in every transaction on the planet that uses the Internet and what we’ve discovered and – I’m still reeling, my mind is boggled by what we’ve now come to find out, but that a company called Entrust was created in 1998 as a spin-off of a Canadian telephone company [Nortel, a now-defunct Canadian telecommunications conglomerate, with people like former US Secretary of Defense, Frank Carlucci on its Board of Directors. Its 2009 bankruptcy was the largest in Canadian history, leaving pensioners and shareholders with staggering losses while Nortel executives continued to draw “retention bonuses” totaling US$190 million during the eight-year post-bankruptcy period].
McKibben continues, “Entrust became the certificate authority for issuing these digital keys for many organizations and we’ve had people looking at the securities filings for this company from 1998 to 2009, when they sold out to a San Francisco firm and what we discovered, astoundingly is that Hillary Clinton’s partner at the Rose Law Firm [Jerry C Jones] directs this company as a Class-One Director. He was slipped in in late 2003 and this means that we can show solid proof that the entire Internet has been compromised, in that Hillary Clinton and the Clintons have access to all the digital keys for all transactions on the planet.”
[AB note: This relates to how people who run afoul of her are robotically de-platformed and de-monetized, as part of the developing Internet of Things and its attendant Social Credit System].
“That is just astounding, how a private individual could have come to have such power but the facts are now clear, that’s the circumstance we’re in right now. This includes almost all of the agencies, executive agencies of the government and that includes the Federal Deposit Insurance Corporation (FDIC), Department of Treasury, Department of Commerce, National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST), General Services Agency (GSA), the Department of State, the Department of Energy, the US Post Office, the US Patent Office, the US Marine Corps, the US Coast Guard and on and on and on and then beyond that, we see the names of most of the major telecommunications players in Canada, in Scandinavia, in Denmark. According to their records they have over 2,000 key customers and therefore, the Clintons through their Director, his name is Jerry C Jones have access to the entire back door of the Internet.”
I’m trying to keep this article short but will stay on this development. You can hear many more mind-blowing details in this interview.

The Clintons and Turnbulls
One can’t escape that the two families seem to like ‘foundations’, it has a cozy sound, one of philanthropy through the pure heart of a samaritan—even Mother Theresa like. Past Australian governments simply adored the Clinton Foundation to the tune of more than $400 million. Gillard is in there somewhere also. Perhaps ‘foundation’ was the lure for Malcolm? The Great Barrier Reef Foundation sounds regal—don’t you think? The Clinton Foundation $400 million odd. The GBRF $444 million—not too much and not too little. Gee, big Mal has a lot of good friends—today. Tomorrow—I dunnow!
Malcolm Turnbull’s office has confirmed that two of the directors of the Great Barrier Reef Foundation — the recipient of a $444 million grant from his government awarded without tender — may have been hosted at the Prime Minister’s home by wife Lucy.

PM fends off Lucy’s links to $444m reef grant recipients
The Australian can reveal the head of the Great Barrier Reef Foundation’s philanthropy committee, Stephen Fitzgerald, a one-time head of Mr Turnbull’s former investment bank Goldman Sachs, was on the board of the European Business Advisory Council at the same time as Mrs Turnbull.
Mr Fitzgerald is also on the council of advisers for the US Studies Centre in Sydney — where Mrs Turnbull is patron — and was on that council while Mrs Turnbull held the role of deputy chair between 2012 and 2015.
The chairman of the philanthropy committee for the Great Barrier Reef Foundation before Mr Fitzgerald, Stephen Roberts, was also on the council of advisers for the US Studies Centre at the same time Mrs Turnbull held ceremonial roles. Mr Roberts resigned from his foundation role in June after being charged with alleged criminal cartel conduct.
Asked yesterday whether Mr Fitzgerald or Mr Roberts had been to the Turnbulls’ home, a spokesman for the Prime Minister said: “Prior to 2015, as deputy chair of the US Studies Centre, Mrs Turnbull occasionally hosted USSC directors and advisers at her home.”
The revelations will raise more questions about the grant to the foundation but the Prime Minister’s office insists the decision was not a result of connections.
The Australian understands Mrs Turnbull concedes she knows Mr Fitzgerald but says she has not seen him for more than three years and cannot “recall” discussing the Great Barrier Reef Foundation with him.
“Mrs Turnbull is not a director of the European Australian Business Council and has not been for more than a year,” a spokesman for the Prime Minister said.
“The PM’s parliamentary disclosures reflect this. (Mrs Turnbull) has not spoken directly with either man for several years, and does not recall discussing the funding of the Great Barrier Reef Foundation with them.”
He said: “The PM has not discussed this issue with Mr Fitzgerald or Mr Roberts. The government is preserving the Great Barrier Reef for future generations. This initiative will secure jobs and improve the health of the reef. The foundation is the best-placed body to deliver on these goals.”
Asked whose idea the grant was, Mr Turnbull’s spokesman would only say: “The proposal was developed within the Department of the Environment and Energy in consultation with the Department of Prime Minister and Cabinet, the Department of Finance, Treasury, the Great Barrier Reef Marine Park Authority and the Great Barrier Reef Foundation.”
The Australian does not suggest the grant was made improperly.
Mr Turnbull has conceded he knows Mr Fitzgerald but says he does not know another Goldman Sachs boss, Keith Tuffley, who was on the Great Barrier Reef Foundation board until he resigned on federal budget day, May 8.
Environment Minister Josh Frydenberg repeatedly refused to say on 2GB yesterday whether the decision to give the $444m to the foundation without tender was Mr Turnbull’s idea. “It’s the government’s idea and it was one of the major announcements … in the budget because we want to save the Barrier Reef,” he said.
“This is the single largest ever investment in the Barrier Reef.”
Labor senator Kristina Keneally said: “There is something fishy about this grant.
“How does a prime minister give away $444m of public money without due diligence, competitive tender or grant application?”
“If Malcolm Turnbull and his family has a personal relationship with one or more of the Great Barrier Reef Foundation board members, that’s even more reason (he) should have ensured this grant decision was taken at arm’s length from him, with the highest standards of probity and contestability, so as to give the public confidence in the decision.”

On the council of advisers for the US Studies Centre at the same time Mrs Turnbull was on the board of directors. The PM’s office confirms Mr Fitzgerald may have been hosted by Mrs Turnbull at the Turnbulls’ home.
Former head of Citigroup. Was charged with alleged criminal cartel conduct related to his time at Citigroup. Was chairman of the Great Barrier Reef Foundation philanthropy committee in 2016 and 2017. Resigned from Great Barrier Reef Foundation board in June after he was charged. Was on the council of advisers for the US Studies Centre at the same time as Mrs Turnbull was on the board of directors. The PM’s office confirms he may have been hosted at the Turnbulls’ home.

What is going on with Trump?
by Brent Wordman
If we’re to believe the mainstream media, in particular the ABC, the Trump administration is a chaotic mess ruled by an egomaniacal despot. But appearances can be deceptive.
Trump always had the mission to go to Washington as a populist, to kick heads and “drain the swamp” i.e. radically change the political landscape of Washington DC with its entrenched, corrupt interests and the anti-American neo-liberal globalist agenda of the wealthy east coast aristocracy (e.g. Rockefellers).
Trump also has to deal with a corporate elite called the Senior Executive Service – highly-paid bureaucrats who essentially decide what governments should and shouldn’t do, based upon their “corporate expertise”. The SES also exists in Australia, and probably many other countries as well, e.g. to “provide APS (Australian Public Service) wide strategic leadership of the highest quality that contributes to an effective and cohesive APS” – in other words make the APS more self-serving than public-serving as it should be.
So undoing a highly controlled corporatocracy is no easy job, which is why Trump is reported to have approached the matter military style with the help of the US military e.g. former marine and Special Counsel Robert Mueller.
Encoded details of Trump’s operation are being leaked out on Twitter (deliberately I guess) by an anonymous source called variously “QAnon” or “QAnon8chan”.
Veteran journalist Jerome Corsi has spent time decoding the messages (like the decoded one below) and the picture has emerged of the highly organised Trump operation to drain the swamp.
In fact it was revealed early this year that Trump had invoked emergency powers under an anti-human trafficking executive order.
The Clinton Foundation is one organization accused of human trafficking in Haiti. The Foundation operated in 70 countries. Bill Clinton was also a frequent rider on the “Lolita Express” – billionaire and now convicted pedophile Jeffrey Epstein’s flights to a private island also known as “orgy island”.
The attached email promoting some sort of pool party with kids was written by Hillary and Jay Rockefeller’s former chief of staff.
It was further revealed that more than 18,000 sealed indictments had been issued against pedophiles, human traffickers and other offenders (see Dilley Intel’s reference below).
All the while the Democrats and some Republicans have accused Trump of “colluding with the Russians” to trick the American people into voting for him and against Hillary.
In fact if there was any Russian collusion it was with the Obama administration and Secretary of State Hillary Clinton.
Investor and author Charles Ortel has investigated the Clinton Foundation and Hillary Clinton’s episode as Secretary of State using private email servers, a criminal offence with jail terms.
Ortel is calling the Clinton Foundation the largest fraud in US – and possibly world – history.
