The Foreign Investment Review Board is now obviously influenced by Liberal or Labor politicians and should be abolished and replaced with a parliamentary committee including independents
A decision to grant a Chinese linked company a mining licence on a remote West Australian island, close to a military training area, is raising concerns inside Defence and federal government ranks.
- A Hong Kong-based company was last year granted a 12-year lease of abandoned mining operations on Cockatoo Island
- The Foreign Investment Review Board examined the deal, but security officials have privately expressed concerns
- Liberal Senator Concetta Fierravanti-Wells says the leasing to a Chinese linked company shows current laws are “defective”
In October, the private Hong Kong-based entity was announced as the new owner of abandoned iron ore operations on Cockatoo Island in WA’s Kimberley region, next to the Yampi Sound Defence Training Area.
Cockatoo Island is roughly 2000 kilometres from Perth and boasts an airstrip which was used to service past mining projects as well as a resort built by infamous businessman Alan Bond during the 1980s.
According to Western Australia’s Department of Mines registry the new lease approved last year for ‘Cockatoo Island Mining Pty Ltd’ will expire in 2032.
Cockatoo Island Mining’s directors say they want to “establish a world class and responsible mining operation, within an area that has demonstrated high-grade iron ore deposits,” after the previous owner went into administration in 2015.
Company documents submitted to the Australian Security and Investments Commission confirm directors of the Cockatoo Island Mining venture reside in Australia, India, Hong Kong as well as mainland China.
The ABC has confirmed the 2020 takeover was examined by the Foreign Investment Review Board (FIRB) but the deal has still alarmed some federal government figures who believe it is similar to the controversial lease of Darwin Port to a Chinese state-owned company.
Liberal Senator Concetta Fierravanti-Wells, who previously served as Minister for International Development and the Pacific, has told the ABC she is alarmed at the deal.
“The Cockatoo Island ‘transaction’ is yet another example of why acquisition of strategic assets from governments in Australia by ‘private companies’ with links to Beijing should come within the scope of both FIRB and foreign relation legislation.”
“This ‘transaction’ is another glaring example of our defective federal laws,” the NSW Senator argues.
Nearly every person who walks past this polling table agrees with the banner. At least the people of northern NSW have woken up. None said they would have a Covid vax and the very slow uptake around the nation must be worrying Scott Morrisson’s keepers. Health Minister Greg Hunt believed his own false rhetoric about safe vaccines and he will be in hospital and out of the picture for quite some time it appears. How many others will the Liberals lose? Former Liberal Craig Kelly was smart by jumping out of the Halton, Hunt, Scomo, UN, WHO clique.
Kelly knew what was coming and he warned, as did many hundreds of doctors across the world, the experimental mRNA vaccines would kill. Want to take a ticket in the Covid lottery?

Political parties have usurped Constitutional government in Australia over at least the past four decades replacing it with corporate governance by removing the Crown and replacing it with the Queen of Australia.
There is no such lawful entity. Labor Prime Minister Gough Whitlam in 1972 started the rot and successive Prime Ministers both Labor and Liberal completed the treachery without referendum.
More and more Australians have discovered what has gone down around them aided and abetted by an equally treacherous media and the Bar Association incorporating the Inns of Court and the Law Association with its lawyer members.
Law faculties at universities staffed by socialist-left professors over many years have indoctrinated literally thousands of graduates to believe Parliaments are supreme and there is no recourse for litigants who have been reamed by this asset-stripping, banking industry- orientated court system developed by the party duopoly.
So much so that the Australian Banking Association employed as CEO former Queensland Labor Premier Anna Bligh who qualified for the position by borrowing $60 billion when Premier from Rothschild Bank and mortgaging the assets of the state for collateral.
Queensland’s system of law has degenerated into an asset-stripping operation for the banks, attested by the Labor-appointed judge in the recent taxi industry claim for compensation for now worthless taxi licences after the Labor gang allowed Uber ride sharing to jump the queue.
The Supreme Court judge gave Uber a free ride to the bank while taxi operators lost their mortgaged homes and suicided at a similar rate to cattle producers during the Labor-induced live cattle export embargo.
In Queensland the party duopoly has ensured there is no lawful remedy.
But there’s more….
Litigants are advised to check out the newly formed Common Law Courts of Queensland where proper justice will be served in deference to the unlawful so-called courts of Queensland Inc.
Australian political party members of parliament should be mindful of what is soon to transpire in the United States affecting the traitors of Constitutional government. Corporate nemesis is coming to Australia……….
Eat your heart out Peter Beattie.
May 30, Brisbane
Controlled Brisbane media ignored largest ever Brisbane gathering to protest vaccination, chanting “our children our choice!”
The Coronahoax and those pushing it copped a serve from the kilometre-long procession of mums, dads and their kids

AUSTRALIAN governments had better take heed of a major new protest movement brought on by the Gates & company scamdemic, plandemic – call it what you want.
While George Soros and his highly organised global left rallies their footsoldiers around the George Lloyd killing this weekend, the weekend before saw large and spontaneous anti-vaccine, anti-COVID scam marches in Sydney, Brisbane, Melbourne and Adelaide.
The messages were clear – no to any suggestion of mandatory vaccination, COVID-19 fakery and Bill Gates’ global health mafia.
These were barely organised marches, with call-to-rally messages going out only two or three weeks before on social media.
Who actually organised them is not widely known, and media barely mentioned them.
The leftie publication The Guardian gave some coverage including photos and videos from the march claiming only 500 attended the Sydney rally.
However in Brisbane the March stretched for blocks and people ignored social distancing with few, if any, wearing masks.
A video posted on Twitter by a Brisbane Times reporter Lucy Stone showed thousands of marchers quietly streaming down Adelaide Street.
“Police are monitoring both protests and have blocked off Adelaide Street to allow protesters to walk up the street toward Parliament House. No arrests have been made, Queensland police say, despite there being not much evidence of social distancing.”
The other protest involved a small group outside the Chinese consulate, including anti-Chinese influence student Drew Pavlou, who has been suspended from the University of Queensland for two years.
Ms Stone completed her Twitter feed with a link to the snooty “academic” website The Conversation and an article on “5G-coronavirus conspiracy theories”.
The website targeted the “conspiracy theory video “Plandemic” featuring virologist Dr Judy Mikovits, which has been viewed millions of times despite being taken down by YouTube and Facebook.
The Conversation and the mainstream media is using the leftist US organisation Media Matters allegedly to “debunk” Plandemic.
It’s not working.
Federal Member Bob Katter has taken his fight to protect Australia from foreign corporations to the floor of the Federal Parliament.
The Katter’s Australian Party Member introduced a Bill today to protect Australia from the foreign corporate colonisation of rural and regional areas (The Foreign Acquisitions and Takeovers Amendment (Strategic Assets) Bill 2020) – the second time Mr Katter has introduced the Bill in five years.
Mr Katter said he didn’t know how other MPs would be able to look at their grandchildren and great grandchildren in the eye and tell them that they sold off their nation.
“On behalf of the Australian people we say no more foreign ownership,” Mr Katter said.
“Around 30 per cent of the people I meet tell me they are shocked and horrified that the Government is selling Australia off and out.”
The Bill states a foreign person cannot acquire a 10 per cent or greater interest in Australian land, water, or other assets that are of strategic economic or defence significance.
“A two thirds majority in both houses of parliament must approve foreign acquisitions, and the acquisition will be for no more than 45 percent of the asset,” Mr Katter said.
13.4 per cent of Australia’s agricultural land is foreign owned according to the ATO’s latest statistics from July 2018.
And foreign agricultural ownership is as high as 25 per cent in Western Australia and the Northern Territory.
Similarly with Australia’s water assets, the ATO data shows 10.4 per cent is owned by foreign interests.
“The Ord stage two and stage three were given completely to China, despite more than 30 Australians applying for the water,” Mr Katter said.
“Our most strategic northern deep water Port in Darwin was effectively sold off as well.
“It was also the most strategic Port for the Americans in the South Pacific. Is there anything this Government won’t sell?”
The Bill also calls for the establishment of a Foreign Ownership Assessment Board (FOAB) to determine whether an asset is of strategic economic or defence importance.
Mr Katter said the board would be chosen by a majority of the Senate of Australia and any determination of the FOAB would be reviewable by an appeals tribunal.

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.
LAST month, the Gudang/Yadhaykenu Aboriginal Corporation took tenure of 211 ha of land in Cape York, including the abandoned Pajinka Resort and it is reported that Chinese investors are negotiating with the Traditional Owners to purchase the land.
KAP Federal Member for Kennedy Bob Katter shares the concerns of Northern Peninsula Area Mayor, Eddie Newman, that a takeover of the resort by offshore Chinese investors would lead to a dire situation for the Traditional Owners, and would be a major national security threat for Australia.
“I have been reliably informed that Chinese buyers have visited the northern tip of Cape York on at least two occasions to inspect the abandoned resort, with a particular interest in photographing the northern rugged coastline,” Mr Katter said.
“Concerns raised by Mayor Eddie Newman are that due to no consultation there has been no safeguards for local jobs and no reassurance that the profits will actually go back into the local community.”
Options for rebuilding the resort will be discussed at the Gudang/Yadhaykenu Aboriginal Corporation’s annual general meeting tomorrow, Friday December 6.
“Why would they want the most northern point of Australia? The closest point to Papua New Guinea,” asked Mr Katter.
“There are numerous questions here and I would think the answers are pretty ugly.”
Mr Katter has taken the step of meeting with Home Affairs Minister, Peter Dutton, who has the power to block such foreign investment if it were to proceed.
“Losing control of the Torres Straits would be a national security disaster,” Mr Katter said.
“They’ve already handed over the Port of Darwin and given away the Ord in Western Australia. Almost every big cattle aggregation is foreign owned.
“The defence and security of this nation is precipitation for extreme anger in the United States and, infinitely more importantly, for every Australian who is just simply fed up with watching day after day the sell off of their country.
“The suits are parading around saying isn’t this foreign investment marvellous, but one day they’ll wake up in
a country that isn’t their own.”
New Zealand government trying to close down farming with draconian fresh water and environmental regulations
Letter to the Editor
Agenda 21/30 strikes NZ
Biggest ever farm protests in European history last week hidden by Australian media, and they are running a nation-wide campaign for government transparency?
Your advert and info of new book about Port Arthur which someone has just emailed to me. Google a book titled, CHRISTCHURCH MASSACRE: SATANISM & JOHN PODESTA posted on “Genuine Christianity” website in USA.
Also, although a different subject, which may be of interest to you, right now the NZ Government in collaboration with the Netherlands Government is trying to URGENTLY close down all pastoral farming with new draconian ‘Climate Change’ fresh water and environmental regulations (under UN Agenda 21 which they never mention) which will put most farmers out of business.
The Dutch farmers are awake to the seriousness of these UN Green fascist proposals and have been holding the biggest farming protests in Europe’s history the past two weeks, but the news of this has been totally censored by the mainstream media in NZ, hence our farmers still are doing virtually nothing to oppose the proposals. You know the apathetic old story down under, “She’ll be right mate!” Google “YouTube – Netherlands farmers protest 16 October, 2019.” Another massive protest is planned for next week. Appreciate your work. Jack N.Z.
This week’s two best stories came from 2GB. Alan Jones completely exposes the Adani coal mine and its Indian owners who cannot get finance for the project in India. Jones says the economics simply do not stack up and is greatly concerned about the amount of water the mine will use. It should be noted coal mines use lots of fresh water in the coal wash plant, cleaning coal of foreign matter before it is trucked off site.
Jones says the mine is unsustainable at its present, planned 27 million tonnes output. Its government permit allows for 60 million tonnes to be mined.
He says Adani wants the government to fund the railway line which Adani will own and charge all others to carry their coal to port. This is the only way the mine can show a profit.
Retired Major General Jim Molan was a liberal senator in the last parliament. He was doing a great job and was one of the best and brightest Liberal performers in years. He served under Malcolm Turnbull as PM. He was far too honest for the Liberals and Nationals especially when he exposed Australia had only 19 days or less fuel supply at any given time, useless in times of emergency.
This got right up the collective Liberal hierarchical noses who retaliated by placing him in the unwinnable fourth spot on the senate ticket. He ran a vote below the line campaign and according to ABC election guru Anthony Green got 115,000 votes as an individual, the highest in Australian history.
Molan should replace Arthur Sinodonis when he is bought off by the party, vacates the senate and relegated to the position of Ambassador in Washington.

Queensland Labor Premier Annastacia Palaszczuk is having herself on, at the behest of the rabid, green Deputy Premier Jackie Trad thinking she can curb the growing influence of Katters Australian Party across the north by sacking their government employed staff.
One of the most mendacious media campaigns in recent years, naturally spearheaded by the left wing of the ABC, against Senator Fraser Anning and his now famous immigration speech has spectacularly backfired.
While it is a normal occurrence, Bob Katter has been mobbed by the old and young alike. It was evident at weekend functions across Shane Knuth’s state electorate of Hill and in Katters federal electorate of Kennedy, ordinary people, the quiet majority have emerged from their slumber.
Grandmothers, grandfathers, mothers, fathers and kids were lining up for photos with Katter like never before. Similarly in yet another failed attempt by the rather obnoxious socialist hosting the ABC’s Q&A, Tony Jones, Bob Katter was unable to leave the Mackay premises of the Q&A show after the program. Again he was mobbed by audience members who wanted to thank him for Anning’s speech and his contribution to the immigration debate.
As he explained to many, it was not only Anning’s call for a referendum on immigration, it was the odious reaction of the ALP/LNP duopoly which sparked life into a sleeping giant.
It is evident the Labor Party is running scared of KAP. On Sunday, in front of the ALP rent-a-crowd at a state conference, Palaszczuk promised to remove five of the KAP parliamentary staff because Robbie Katter refused to denounce Anning’s call for an immigration referendum.
It is plain to see the ALP is heavily reliant on the vote of Muslim immigrants.
In effect the not-so-smart Premier is purposely hindering the duties of an elected member which attracts three years goal under the Crimes Act 1995.
The ALP hierarchy was shocked when 75 per cent of respondents, ironically to an ABC poll said Fraser Anning should not apologise for his comments about Muslim immigration.
This sent the ALP into a frenzy and their knee-jerk reaction was to penalise KAP.
Now, most voters are not silly and older Brisbaneites should remember Annastacia’s father Henry, who was the member for the state seat of Inala for years. He even made it to Primary Industries Minister but it was no secret poor Henry was not the sharpest tack in the box.
Some scientists believe intelligence is hereditary and if so Annastacia missed the boat.
The bite she hasn’t seem coming will be from her ambitious deputy, Trad, who has made it known on several occasions, she wants the top job.
When the house comes tumbling down, Comrade Trad will pounce.
The ABC, setting the Marxist agenda for aspiring Communist politicians from all sides, targeted a completely innocuous phrase in Annings hallmark speech, trying to foment hate among middle eastern Muslims in Australia.
Fraser said in his revered speech: “We should go back to that and ban ALL immigrants receiving welfare for the first five years after they arrive.
“The final solution to the immigration problem is of course a popular vote.”
It is this phrase ‘,…the final solution…’ which the perfidious ABC, ALP and LNP have taken completely out of context, likening it to Hitler’s so-called holocaust.
This nation building speech is so monumental and significant, it will endure for a generation among parents, children, clergy, small businessmen, teachers of truth and hopefully genuine parliamentary representatives.
It should be mandatory reading in citizenship classes in every public and private school.
Like the ALP, this lying campaign has come back to bite the ABC. Fewer and fewer viewers among a dwindling audience now disregard the ABC as the leading source of news. Gone is the mantle of respectability, neutrality and accuracy, if these attributes have existed over the past 20 years.
It seems the ABC, Guardian and Fairfax have modelled their news gathering and dissemination on that of US fake news channel CNN.
If we had a leader unafraid of Murdoch, Fairfax and the ABC and astute as Donald Trump these insidious news agencies would be shut down, their monopolies broken up and smaller, reliable news sources would fall into place.
Suggestions in the past by former Prime Minister Tony Abbott to defund the ABC and remove its egregious snout from the public trough, were the predisposing cause of his downfall.
Today KAP sought legal advice and if successful Trad will be top dog sooner rather than later.
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.
