Campaign to restore the Upper House in Qld should start now

Editorial

The SSM plebiscite could have been hacked with a predictably skewed result. In any case Cairns News has a long-standing policy of ignoring the gender neutral campaign started years ago by the feminist movement, contemporaneously referred to as the ‘femminazi’ collection of dykes.

Canberra is infested with thousands in this clique. They sit in the multitude of offices found in the Prime Minister’s Department many drafting bills such as the SSM legislation which was passed yesterday in the Lower House.

This newsletter will continue to use the grammatically correct terminology of Mr; Mrs; husband; wife; de-facto; girl; boy; married couple; fisherman; waiter; waitress, ad infinitum.

Time after time Australia has been the guinea pig for the cultural revolution orchestrated by the United Nations and the

Dark Government which is largely unknown to the average Australian. The SSM continues the tradition paving the way for the seemingly normal people remaining on the planet. Every day Mormon lifestyles seem more attractive.

The growing fascism emanating from state parliaments will be evident to all when the Queensland ALP begins its legislative attack on the business and farming sectors during this term of parliament.

The campaign to restore the Upper House should begin in earnest drawing its members from the existing number of state politicians without adding any more. – Gil Hanrahan

Barnaby Joyce and Steven Ciobo get Chinese government funds for India’s Adani coal mine

22 November 2017: Bob Katter MP, Federal Member for Kennedy,  is furious former Deputy Prime Minister Barnaby Joyce took part in selling Adani to China after news the Adani Group is close to securing finance for its coal mine and railway track in coming weeks with Chinese state-owned enterprises, banks, and export credit agencies backing the venture.

Media reports a director of Adani Mining said just days ago they would no longer need funding from Northern Australia Infrastructure Facility (NAIF) and a formal announcement of a financial close was imminent. It was reported in The Australian on Nov 14th Former Deputy Prime Minister Barnaby Joyce and Trade Minister Steven Ciobo wrote to top Chinese officials to vouch for Indian giant Adani. The report said they sent a letter to the chairman of China’s powerful National Development and Reform Commission saying they welcomed “foreign lending to support the development of major projects in Australia”.

Katter calls Liberals Barnaby Joyce and Steven Ciobo traitors for brokering Chinese Government funds to help Adani open Australia’s largest coal mine creating thousands of Chinese jobs in Central Queensland

“If you sell your country out, then you’re a traitor,” Mr Katter said.

It was also reported Chinese enterprises and export credit agencies invariably require that materials for key infrastructure are sourced from China, effectively shifting work out of Australia and undermining Adani’s claims its project will create many thousands of additional jobs for Queensland.

“Half Australia’s coal reserves will be controlled by whoever owns that railway line. It was not good enough for the ALP and  LNP to sell our coal seam gas, now worth $25b a year.  This is enough money to restore our outpatients at our hospitals, and give every pensioner and young families 10 grand each and every year.

“We sold the gas for 6 cents a unit we are now buying it back for $16 a unit – our own Australian gas. And now we are going to do the same thing with coal.

“Does anyone think a spineless Government in Canberra are going to stand up to the Chinese Government when they take over all of our unexploited coal reserves? The Greenies think they will stand up to that? Do they think the  spineless ALP Government will stand up against the Chinese Government? No, they won’t.

“This will go down as the biggest sell out in our country in Australian history, and will let all the world know that Former Deputy Prime Minister Barnaby Joyce and LNP PM Malcolm Turnbull will go down in the history of Australia in infamy,” Mr Katter said.

LNP SUPPORT JACKIE TRAD’S OVERBEARING GUN CONTROL

KAP Shane Knuth and Robbie Katter stated “There are a number of things that could be done to improve community safety including a permanent amnesty, a real time licence verification system, better screening of packages coming in from overseas and redirecting resources from persecution of law abiding shooters to fighting gun crime.

October 11, 2017 – The LNP tonight backed Jackie Trad’s stricter Queensland gun control laws, with both parties displaying their willingness to work together to successfully attack the rights of law-abiding firearm owners.

The major party duopoly voted down a KAP Disallowance motion, ensuring more irrational changes will be made to the National Firearms Agreement (NFA).

KAP members Robbie Katter and Shane Knuth commended LNP Member for Gympie, Tony Perrett for crossing the floor to vote for KAP’s disallowance motion and for putting his constituents before his party.

After a debate characterised by mudslinging and misdirection the LNP sided with the Government to vote down the KAP motion moved by Robbie Katter resulting in Queensland now having gun laws which go far beyond those put in place by John Howard.

When debating the motion, Robbie urged all members of the house to look past the fear and emotion of the issue to ensure our laws are based on evidence and fairness.

“The changes to the NFA have absolutely no empirical or practical justification.

“Unfortunately these laws only punish people who do the right thing while doing nothing to address community safety,’’ Robbie said.

KAP Member for Dalrymple Shane Knuth

Member of Dalrymple Shane Knuth said if the State Government was serious about community safety it would look at measures which crackdown on gun crime, including a permanent amnesty, real time licence verification and better mail and customs screening to stop illegal weapons entering the country.

“The aim of the KAP disallowance motion was to remove the additional regulations imposed by Labor, resulting in tougher gun control laws,’’ Mr Knuth said.

“The LNP had the chance to block these tougher gun controls but chose to support Labor, even though they had been telling constituents they would champion law-abiding gun owners.’’

The LNP attempted to shift the blame to the State Government and the KAP for their decision to support the irrational NFA changes, however it was clear to all observers this was a weak attempt to move the focus away from their attack on law-abiding gun owners and the division within their own party.

“We will always support measures that make the community safer however, good policy needs to be based on evidence and not emotion,’’ Mr Knuth said.

Leader of the Opposition, Tim Nicholls quoted support for John Howard’s gun laws as the rationale. However, the new regulations significantly strengthen John Howard’s laws and they have been made without sufficient consultation with shooters.

The major aspects of the regulations which strengthen John Howard’s laws include:

– A reclassification of lever action shotguns to Category D, which is the same category as AK-47s and AR-15s, while pump action shotguns with the same capacity are classified in Category C.

– Serious questions around changes to the definition of lawful modification which could have the effect of making any type of weapon that has been modified by a licence shooter illegal. This has potential to make hundreds of thousands weapons illegal.

– If weapons are now deemed illegal they need to be handed back. With no compensation scheme in place this is perhaps the biggest injustice in the new laws.

Robbie Katter member for Mt Isa enjoying LNP and ALP pushing votes over to KAP by targeting legal firearm owners with looney legislation

Robbie Katter talks about a number of changes that could be brought in to improve community safety.

“There are a number of things that could be done to improve community safety including a permanent amnesty, a real time licence verification system, better screening of packages coming in from overseas and redirecting resources from persecution of law abiding shooters to fighting gun crime.

“According to a report by the auditor general, Customs only screens 25% of consignments, whereas previously all international mail coming into Australia was scanned. That equates to just 46 million scans, resulting in 67,123 prohibited items being seized. On those calculations, a further 201,369 prohibited items were let into the country,” Robbie said.

 

BRING ON THE ELECTION … NOW IS THE TIME

Rasmussen KAP candidate for Cook Listening Tour

A Katter call and a round table conference makes boaties safe again

A round table conference and a phone call to a senior bureaucrat was all it took to pull the State Government into line over its attempt to plunder the assets of the Port Douglas Marine Rescue group.

At the invitation of the Port Douglas Marine Rescue Volunteer group (QF10)commander Ross Wood, KAP candidate for Cook Gordon Rasmussen and Bob Katter were invited to discuss the impasse between the Coast Guard national management and QF10.

A round table conference and a call from Bob Katter was all it took to put the National Coast Guard bureaucracy in its place and to halt its intended plundering of public assets. KAP candidate for Cook Gordon Rasmussen addressed the conference of Marine Rescue volunteers.

The National Coast Guard had seized the assets of QF10 including their sea rescue boat and vehicles because the locally funded group refused to hand over $300,000 in a bank account and the ‘Tin Shed’ building, provided by community fund-raising.

The National Coast Guard, in a similar grab by the Emergency Services Department trying to take over the Rural Fire Service under the recent LNP Government, the coast guard wanted to absorb QF10 into its bureaucracy.

The Port Douglas group of volunteers refused and it seems Bob Katter’s call to the Minister’s office yielded results.

Katter told the Chief of Staff: “ …look, I am not looking to pick a fight with you but you had better fix this up….”

The staffer told Mr Katter a delegation from the department would arrive in Port Douglas the next day.

Combined with mediation bythe Douglas Shire Council the matter was resolved and after 10 weeks out of action the boating public will again be protected by volunteer coast guard crews.

Terri Irwin should leave croc management to locals

Letter to editor

Mrs Terri Irwin from Australia Zoo near Weipa has placed the lives of salt water crocodiles above that of people.

It’s a fact the government purchased a Cape York property for $6 million to hand over to Australia Zoo some years ago.

But how can Mrs Irwin place animal lives over humans?

I have been told by tourists who visited Australia Zoo near Weipa, Mrs Irwin’s wildlife officers have tagged more than 130 saltwater crocodiles in a short stretch of the Wenlock River.

The river ecology simply cannot tolerate such a high incidence of estuarine crocodiles. Soon these crocs will start preying on each other because the fish population and any other animals on the croc menu will have been eaten out.

Indigenous people have told me there are far too many saltwater crocs and fish numbers have been seriously depleted in Peninsula waterways because of the explosion in numbers.

Mrs Irwin said on radio that more croc warning signs needed to be erected on beaches and at airports and schools should educate children that they can no longer go near any water anywhere in the north.

How does Mrs Irwin expect tourist operators to promote beaches and rivers for swimming and fishing when it is too dangerous to go near the water? What about the life savers?

Do indigenous people get a say over croc management? After all most of the crocs live in rivers and creeks on Aboriginal controlled land and coastal waterways north of Townsville.

Why does Mrs Irwin who does not live in North Queensland feel she should have more say than indigenous and local residents over croc management?

The ALP and LNP refuse to fast track KAP Safe Waterways legislation that will help protect tourists and northern inhabitants from attacks.

Twenty years ago we did not have this problem in the north.

How many more people and animals need to be devoured by the large, rapacious crocodile population before the party duopoly wakes up?

Gordon Rasmussen, KAP candidate for Cook

Katters Australian Party wants to abolish gun registration

Bob Katter took part in a recent western shoot at the Mareeba SSAA range. He joked that this might be the best way to bring the banks into line. Bob says KAP is the only party in Queensland that wants to do away with firearms registration which has been a long-held policy. Bob spent some time shooting at the range with pistol, rifle and shotgun. His pistol ability did not go unnoticed by the club. They want him to come back for a day’s competition. The veteran politician warns that if the Labor Party gets re-elected in Queensland with a majority, the state’s 600,000 shooters will be faced with restrictions on ammunition sales and even tighter restrictions on gun ownership. He says the ALP and LNP simply hate guns.

LNP leaves the crocs to eat Far Northerners and their animals

Young dog taken by huge croc near Innisfail

 Two days after a huge crocodile devoured a six-month-old puppy in North Queensland, the major parties have refused to declare KAP’s Safer Waterways bill as urgent.

 KAP’s Shane Knuth today sought leave to fast track the Safer Waterways bill so it could be voted on by October. Labor and the LNP ganged up to block Shane’s request, meaning Queensland will have to wait until at least the end of March next year for a vote.

 In seeking leave, Shane read out a letter from a constituent (who did not want to be named):

LNP an ALP refuse to fast track KAP’s crocodile legislation, leaving more North Queenslanders to be eaten by crocs

 “We live on the banks of the South Johnstone River in Mourilyan, North Queensland. On Tuesday afternoon we lost our six-month-old purebred white Sheppard to a very large crocodile. As we live very close to the river our dog had gone down to the water’s edge, failing to call her up to our yard we went down to try and get her when the crocodile just so quietly grabbed her and took her into the water. This was absolutely terrifying for both my partner and myself as we weren’t aware it was there and it could easily have been us.

 About half hour or so after our puppy was taken on Tuesday, we were sitting there looking over the river when another two crocs showed up! It was like feeding time at the zoo.

 Please help us to do something about these monsters, we need dogs for security reasons, but it’s simply too dangerous for them and traumatic for us.”

 It’s the second puppy they’ve lost to a crocodile on their property in less than a year.

 Shane Knuth introduced the Safer Waterways bill on 25 May. The legislation would make it mandatory for rogue crocodiles to be removed from populated Queensland waterways. It would also empower landowners to manage crocodiles on their own land.

 “I cannot believe that Labor and the LNP don’t think this urgent,” Shane said. “This is clearly a safety issue. This family’s puppy being eaten on Tuesday is not an isolated incident.”

 Shane tabled four news articles from the last 12 months; Croc kills family dog in Innisfail; Croc kills spear fisherman in Palmer point; Croc kills tourist at Thornton Beach; Report confirms that Queensland’s saltwater crocodile populations are rising.

 “If someone else is killed by a crocodile, the government and LNP will have a lot of explaining to do. We need to act now,” Shane said.

 

Christian teaching removed from schools

KAP Federal Member for Kennedy Bob Katter on Thursday afternoon questioned the Minister representing the Attorney General on the eradication of Christian moral grounding in Primary Schools across Australia.

“Attorney General, secularist attacks upon Christianity inundate – Nativity scenes gone. Star removed from Christmas trees. Now QLD’s government eradicates Christian moral teachings from schoolyards.

Chairman Mao killed millions due to humanism which is replacing Christianity in State Schools. Charles Darwin was a fraud admitting on his death bed that he had been wrong about evolution

“Can we be assured that the replacement won’t be humanism to quote Lenin, “Communism’s father and mother, Stalin Mao 72m dead or Charles Darwin Adolf Hitler’s master race 26m dead?

“And that education in Australia tells of Pax Romanus replacing Roman tyranny.  Bishop Langston’s Magna Carta, the abolition of slavery, the collapse of communism and history’s 6 greatest scientists all this from the carpenter preacher from Nazareth?”  

The question is in response to a report auditing religious instruction curriculum in public schools  issued by the Queensland Department of Education and Training which noted that “students should not be encouraged to evangelise to other students at school” and referenced that schools should “take appropriate action” if a student is found to be doing so.

Mr Katter said Judeo-Christian was the motivating force of some of the most prominent names in our history books.

“Pasteur, Newton, Einstein, Galileo, Mandell and Faraday all practiced Judeo-Christianity and the three great men of European history: Alfred the Great, Constantine and Charlemagne were all fathers of European Christianity”.

Mr Katter said Christian churches were being ridiculed and he was sick of sitting back and copping it by the humanists and the Darwinians.

“Let’s face our enemy squarely; the humanists and the Darwinians.

“We will stand as Christians on our record. Islam from Arabia executed 23,000 Christians in Aleppo while the Turkish Islam came back a century later and murdered 33,000 Christians. Arguably, the only time the Middle East knew peace was under the Crusaders.

“We make no apologies. We serve notice that we will not continue to cop persecution until they annihilate us”.

Vote for the ALP, Greens or LNP and you will lose your guns

Ammo limits coming: the Indos and Chinese just love the ALP/LNP

Liberal Democrat Senator David Leyonjhelm warns the NSW Government is in the process of seeking comments on the consultation draft of proposed Firearms Regulations before the existing regulations expire on September 1 2017.

This is an opportunity to have your say on the existing regulations and propose amendments.  This is also an excellent opportunity to recommend that Paintball and Airsoft ‘guns’ are no longer classified as firearms.

A sharp-eyed Liberal Democrats member has noticed the following in the draft regulations:

13 (3) The Commissioner may refuse to issue a permit authorising the possession or use of a firearm if the Commissioner is satisfied that the applicant intends to possess or use the firearm for personal protection or the protection of any other person or for the protection of property.

This member has pointed out that if a firearms owner advocated in favour of firearms for self-defence to be legalised, the ‘Commissioner’ could see that as an intent to use their firearms for personal protection and refuse to issue or revoke a firearms licence.

Opinion from Ron Owen, Owen Guns at Gympie about Queensland ALP and its hatred of guns:

NSW has already passed and started Registration of Ammunition, in compliance with the National Firearm Agreement, those traitorous Police Ministers and their Yes-men, unanimously agreed to impose this in every State of Australia.

The 660,000 licenced shooters of Queensland, (growing numbers at 35% per anum) do not have much time left to raise the alarm and tell all, that the new NFA (National Firearm Agreement) that our Labor Premier has ready to put before parliament, does not just alter the categories of Adler Lever Action shotguns, but its real intent is to register and limit all ammunition sales, creating another huge empire of public servants, recording, reporting, accessing and restricting your right to purchase ammunition. This will impose a huge burden on every shooter and on every point of sale, that has to employ people to register and report that information to the State.

Limiting Ammunition when Australia is being encroached upon, the word ‘invaded’ could be used, by 100 million feral pigs or more, they double their numbers ever year, so the CSIRO tells us. We also have huge external defence problems that would by any sensible government encourage production of ammunition and firearms.

Prices will rise and it will cause a black market in ammunition to thrive. More police will be needed to spy on shooters and gunshops, so the Police Union and bureaucracy will continue to increase in size. Criminals, who have no shortage of money will have no problem acquiring ammunition, the government knows this and so does any rational thinking person. This is just another small step with a big government boot to suppress the freedom of the individual.

Other sections of this NFA (National Firearm Agreement) (that no one, but government agreed to) is in changing the current requirement of collectors firearms and heirlooms, from temporary inoperable to permanently inoperable. Instead of a firing pin removal, or a trigger lock, these ancient masterpieces of invention that have huge emotional value to families will have to be welded up into a solid lump of junk.

So please inform your local members of parliament of every party. Emphasise the fact that you and your friends and families will all vote against them at the next election if they do not oppose these further impositions. They do not have to be told which way you voted last time. that you will not vote for them.

Even ‘One Nation’ has these words in their policy “maintain the general principle of the National Firearms Agreement in restricting access to high powered, high capacity firearms.”

More than likely they have never read the NFA, but they have to be told by individuals. Don’t wait for your association to do it for you. Its numbers that count, every vote down, and given to another Independent means that they have to find two other votes to make up for that loss.

When you visit, your local member, he will more than likely blame everyone but himself, he will start with the opposition and then when he realises you know that both major parties have given bilateral support for the agreement. He will even look to blame his own party for a way out, or an excuse.

Just tell him to stand as an independent and proclaim his own policy,

  1. For the individual right of law abiding citizens to own firearms,
  2. To end long arm registration, to allow semi autos and pumps, and

C. Ensure that all law abiding citizens can use the Right of Self Defence as a reason to obtain the firearms that they believe are suitable for this need. Remember if a snap election is announced and you do not have time to vet your local candidates  put Labor last followed by the Greens and other major parties that are standing. Only know them by what they produce.
Remember – Port Arthur was the greatest scam ever perpetrated in Australia by a government- Editor
