Singapore Ag company sells 89,085 megalitres of Australian water to Canadian pension fund

Liberal and Labor party deregulation of farm water allows this profiteering of $311M for foreign companies which pay little or no Australian tax. How much longer will Australians put up with this sell-off of our natural assets, particularly water

SINGAPORE (THE BUSINESS TIMES) – A unit of Olam International is selling 89,085 megalitres (about 89 billion litres) of its permanent water rights in Australia to a related entity of the Public Sector Pension Investment Board (PSP Investments), one of Canada’s largest pension investment managers, for A$490 million (S$452.7 million).
The deal is expected to be completed in December 2019, whereupon Olam will receive cash proceeds of A$490 million. The agri and food giant is also expected to book a one-time pre-tax capital gain of about A$311 million.
Separately, PSP Investments has agreed to buy about 12,000 hectares of almond orchards and related assets in Victoria, Australia, that were previously leased to the Olam unit, Olam Orchards Australia (OOA).

Liberal and Labor free trade and de-regulation mantra has allowed huge profiteering for foreign companies by selling our water

Both the almond orchards and the associated water rights will continue to be operated by the subsidiary, said Olam.
OOA has entered into a new, tiered revenue sharing arrangement with PSP Investments for the almond orchards, related assets and permanent water rights. Under this arrangement, OOA will pay PSP Investments a share of revenue from the almond orchards.
The agreement is for an initial period of 25 years with options to renew for another 25 years.
Olam’s managing director and CEO of edible nuts Ashok Krishen said: “Consistent with our asset-light approach to tree crop production, this arrangement will enable Olam Orchards Australia to focus on operations and continue to deliver best-in-class products and services to customers.
“I am confident this partnership with PSP Investments will help lead the industry in sustainable farming and agricultural practices, and protect critical natural resources, such as water in Australia.”
In addition to the sale of its permanent water rights in Australia, Olam is in discussions to divest and/or restructure various assets and businesses in line with its strategic plan. Some of these deals may conclude in this financial year, said Olam.

Who is the real enemy of mankind?

Letter to the Editor

An excellent well detailed documentary with link below, exposes the perpetrators & who our real enemies are, right up to the snakes head. The SATANIC Rothschild.

We are today living in the world of the victors of that war and without an objective, rational and balanced view of our history, we are doomed to repeat the mistakes. After World War Two, the victors of the war not only went on to write our history books, infiltrate our media and public education but even going so far as to criminalize the mere questioning of the official story’s orthodoxy. The truth is, that our world today can only be understood through a correct understanding of World War II, the architects of it and the conflicts between Globalism and Nationalism. Between the old and new world order. The Traditional and the “Progressive”.

Day in and day out, has the post-war propaganda been pounded into the minds of three subsequent generations. Every medium of mass indoctrination has been harnessed to the task of training the obedient masses as to what the proper and “acceptable” view of this event should be. Academia, news media, public education, book publishing, TV documentaries, Hollywood films and politicians of every stripe all sing the same song.

For very good reasons, most people don’t trust the mainstream media anymore. You have already heard the official history millions of times.

This new epic documentary gives an overview of how Europe has been shaped in modern history. In it, you will find the secret history, where you will find the real causes of the events. Watch this series and uncover the real root causes of World War II. It will take you on an epic timeline that will transport you back in time and lead you on the journey through the Bolshevik Revolution, the communist attempts to take over Germany; hyperinflation during the Weimar Republic, widespread unemployment and misery, Adolf Hitler’s rise to power, World War I & II – all the way to the modern world. It presents the true historical events that lead to this world catastrophe known as the second world war, as well as the aftermath.

Climate change nonsense finally wearing off thinking parents

by Andrew Mackinnon

Did government agents light some of the multitude of fires?

The recent bush fires in New South Wales were deliberately lit in order to promote the idea that ‘climate change’ is the threat which caused them and that Australia therefore needs to enact policy to deal with ‘climate change’ so as to prevent further devastation.

It’s irrelevant who was caught lighting the fires, even if they were youths. These are third party intermediaries used for plausible deniability. The Australian government is behind the deliberate lighting of these fires.

Look at the flare up in the Jewish-controlled media linking the fires to ‘climate change’. It’s obvious. First, schoolchildren in Australia protested about ‘climate change’ and that fell flat. Then Greta Thunberg travelled to the United Nations in a yacht to protest about ‘climate change’ and that fell flat because nobody wants to be lectured by a sixteen year old girl being fed a bunch of lines by adult propagandists.

Climate change nonsense is finally wearing off Queenslanders after seeing how the George Soros asset, Greta Thumberg and her well rehearsed performance left parents worried their children might end up like her.

So, the people who want policy to be enacted in Australia regarding ‘climate change’ said to each other, “They ignored the schoolchildren. They even ignored Greta! Let’s give them something they can’t ignore.”

Australian citizens voted Liberal over Labor at the last federal election because they didn’t want the action on ‘climate change’ that Labor was promoting. The majority think that ‘carbon dioxide-driven climate change’ is a fraud, like I do. (Carbon dioxide exists in the earth’s atmosphere at less than 400 parts per million, which is less than 1 part per 2,500, so it doesn’t influence the climate to any appreciable extent.) Australians voted the Liberal Party into federal government at the last federal election earlier this year because it’s the lesser of two very bad evils. Scott Morrison is an appalling Prime Minister but Bill Shorten would have been twice as bad.

The Liberal Party pretends to be opposed to action on ‘climate change’ when it actually supports it and wants it. It knows that the majority of Australian citizens don’t trust the ‘climate change’ agenda, so it’s pretended to adopt the same mistrust in order to win their support. Therefore, if it’s going to be successful enacting policy on ‘climate change’, it needs to resort to indirect methods of lobbying the citizenry, such as deliberately lighting bush fires and then relying on the media to push the narrative that ‘climate change’ is the reason for the fires. The Liberal Party wants to end up in a position in which it is seen as having no choice but to enact policy to deal with ‘climate change’, since ‘climate change’ has become universally recognised as a threat by the citizenry due to high-impact incidents like the bush fires in New South Wales.

The Liberal Party supports action on ‘climate change’ because its allegiance is to the Rothschilds-led synagogue of Satan that needs action on ‘climate change’ in countries around the world in order to provide an excuse for establishing world government ruling over various unions around the world like the European Union, the African Union and the South American Union. There is a planned Asia Pacific Union including China, India and Australia, as well as other Asian countries. There is also a planned North American Union including the United States of America, Canada and Mexico. ‘Climate change’ is the fabricated threat to the entire world which the synagogue of Satan will claim, can only be properly addressed with common policies and methodologies enforced and implemented by world government.

The Rothschilds-led synagogue of Satan has been pushing the fraudulent ‘climate change’ agenda in earnest since 2008 and it’s had this issue on the boil for the past three decades and longer.

 

Saltbush Club calls for Water Minister Littleproud’s resignation

Letter to the Editor

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.

Minister for Wasting Water, David Littleproud should resign, says the Saltbush Club

“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”.

Ron Pike.

How much CO2 gets emitted to build a wind turbine?

Largely useless eyesores, these towers have a limited lifespan and what happens after they expire? As we have said fo years: “the only wilderness left in Australia is between a greenie’s ears”

-contributed

What is the carbon footprint of a wind turbine with 45 tons of rebar & 481m3 of concrete?

Its carbon footprint is massive – at 241.85 tons of CO2.

Here’s the breakdown of the CO2 numbers.
To create a 1 tonne (1,000 Kg) of pig iron, you start with 1.8 tonne (800 Kg) of iron ore, 900 Kg of coking coal 450 Kg of limestone. The blast furnace consumes 4,500 Kg of air. The temperature at the core of the blast furnace reaches nearly 1,600 degrees C (about 3,000 degrees F).

The pig iron is then transferred to the basic oxygen furnace to make steel.
1,350 Kg of CO2 is emitted per 1,000 Kg pig iron produced.

70% of steel is made from Coal: A 1 MW of wind turbine capacity requires 220 tonnes of coal.

Useless wind generators are subsidised by Governments but nearly every wind generator site is owned by foreign companies. Australians lose again and the ALP/LNP duopoly doesn’t care

A further 1,460 Kg CO2 is emitted per 1,000 Kg of Steel produced so all up 2,810 Kg CO2 is emitted.
45 tons of rebar (steel) are required so that equals 126.45 tons of CO2 are emitted.

To create a 1 tonne (1,000 Kg) of Portland cement, calcium carbonate (60%), silicon (20%), aluminium (10%), iron (10%) and very small amounts of other ingredients are heated in a large kiln to over 1,500 degrees C to convert the raw materials into clinker. The clinker is then interground with other ingredients to produce the final cement product. When cement is mixed with water, sand and gravel forms the rock-like mass know as concrete.

An average of 927 Kg of CO2 is emitted per 1 tonne (1,000 Kg of Portland cement. On average, concrete has 10% cement, with the balance being gravel (41%), sand (25%), water (18%) and air (6%). One cubic metre of concrete weighs approx. 2.4 tonne (2,400 Kg) so approx. 240 Kg of CO2 is emitted for every cubic metre.

481m3 of concrete are required so that equals 115.4 tons of CO2 are emitted.

Not included are the emissions of the mining of the raw materials or the transportation of the fabricated materials to the turbine site. So the emission calculation above would be on the low end.

Extra stats about wind turbines you may not know about:
The average towering wind turbine being installed around beautiful Australia right now is over 80 metres in height (nearly the same height as the pylons on the Sydney Harbour Bridge). The rotor assembly for one turbine – that’s the blades and hub – weighs over 22 tonnes and the nacelle, which contains the generator components, weighs over 52 tonnes
This stands on a concrete base constructed from 45 tonnes of reinforcing rebar which also contains over 481 cubic metres of concrete (that’s over 481,000 litres of concrete – about 20% of the volume of an Olympic swimming pool).

Each turbine blade is made of glass fibre reinforced plastics, (GRP), i.e. glass fibre reinforced polyester or epoxy and on average each turbine blade weighs around 7 tonnes Kg each.
Each turbine has three blades so there’s 21 tonnes Kgs of GRP and each blade can be as long as 50 metres.
A typical wind farm of 20 turbines can extend over 101 hectares of land (1.01 Km2).

Each and every wind turbine has a magnet made of a metal called neodymium. There are .5 tonnes of it in each one that have just gone up around Australia.

The mining and refining of neodymium is dirty and toxic – involving repeated boiling in acid, with radioactive thorium as a waste product – that only one country does it – China.

All this for an intermittent highly unreliable energy source of electrickery

Now, considered the manufacture of the thousands of pylons and tens of thousands of kilometres of transmission wire needed to get the power to the grid. And what about the land space needed to house thousands of these bird chomping death machines?

Renewables like wind turbines will incur far more carbon dioxide emissions in their manufacture and installation than what their operational life will ever save.

Doesn’t the false pollution “cure” of using wind turbines sound worse than the problem? A bit like amputating your leg to “cure” your in-growing toe nail?
Germany’s Renewable Energy Fail: German CO2 Emissions 10 Times Higher than Nuclear- France
Germany has added 30,000 wind turbines and millions of solar panels to a coal fired grid and its carbon dioxide gas emissions continue to rise and are magnitudes higher than its nuclear-powered neighbour, France.

GMO crops bill will finish the farming industry as we know it

Letter to the Editor

Dear Farmer

A bill has been presented to Parliament that is trying to deregulate some new genetic modification (GM) techniques and the genetically-modified organisms (GMOs) that are produced as a result, by classifying them as non-GMOs.

Do you know what that could mean for you?

Deregulation means that there is no requirement to tell you that the crop you are planting contains one of these new GMOs.

The genetic sequences developed using these techniques will be patented. This means that wherever these sequences land, they can be covered by patent rights.

GM canola. Canola oil suitable only to put into air compressor motors. It is toxic to humans.

One of these new genetic sequences, called dsRNA, can be sprayed. The patent can extend to the crop and the grain produced by the crop. Spray drift from your neighbour could result in your produce being affected by patent rights. If fruit trees or vines are sprayed with patented dsRNA, the patent could extend to the fruit or grapes produced, for the life of the plant.

The patent-holder can enforce their patent rights. In the USA and Canada, this has resulted in farmers who were contaminated with past versions of GM crops, being sued for growing GM crops without a licence.

The situation in Australia could be worse. Under our existing end-point royalty system, a positive test of the patented material in a farmer’s product gives the patent-holder the legal right to deduct their user fee from the farmer’s produce payments. Even a presence of as low as 0.01% could result in a positive test, and any subsequent action against the farmer is entirely at the patent-holder’s discretion. Farmers that object to this fee being deducted from their payments will need to take legal action against the patent-holder to try to recover their money.

If a GMO spreads to the fields of an organic farm, the farm could also lose its organic status.

If Australia deregulates these GM techniques, it does not mean that importing countries have also deregulated them. In many countries, these products will still be considered as either approved or unapproved GMOs.

If a contaminated export from Australia arrives at a country that has not approved that GMO, the import can be refused. There were 200 cases of trade disruption due to unapproved GMOs between 2002 and 2012, resulting in serious consequences for some exporting countries, including the permanent loss of export markets. Losses have been in the billions of dollars.

If the export is contaminated with a GMO that is actually allowed into the food supply of the importing country, most food will be required to be labelled as GM in that country and subject to major consumer and market rejection.

Take GM wheat as an example. Although varieties of GM wheat have been available for years, it has never been commercially grown anywhere in the world, due to massive market rejection. Any escapes of GM wheat varieties from old trial sites are quickly eradicated, but have still caused markets to cease trading with areas where contamination was found. Any introduction of GM wheat into Australia therefore risks losing an industry that is worth $7.1 billion per year (5-year average).

GMOs are living organisms. Once a GMO is released into Australia on a commercial scale, it will spread and it cannot be recalled. It will be like trying to recall cane toads, blackberries, lantana or rabbits. Therefore, any impact could be permanent.

How is it then possible to recall a GMO if it causes economic loss? Who will be liable for any losses? Will the Federal Government indemnify you against any losses, immediate and on-going?

How will your industry manage these new GM varieties, when they are not considered as GMOs in Australia, but will be considered either as approved or unapproved GMOs in countries that Australia exports to?

Given there have been numerous cases of GM wheat trials in America causing contamination and immediate cancellation of all wheat orders from the area concerned, who will be liable for any economic loss to Australia’s $7.1 billion per year wheat industry if it is contaminated with deregulated GM wheat varieties?

More information can be found in the attached scientific briefing paper, written in everyday English.

If you are concerned, please send an email to the following people expressing your concern and asking “for Gene Technology Amendment (2019 Measures No. 1) Regulations 2019;12 to be blocked, by, for example, withdrawing the legislation, voting against the legislation, or disallowing it”. Tell them that you want these new GMOs to be regulated. Tell them that you want them to be identified as GMOs through the supply chain so that you have a choice about whether to use them or not. Tell them how you and your industry could be impacted if they are deregulated.

LNP set to ban cash to allow forfeiture of bank accounts when economy crashes

from CEC, Melbourne

The fight against “bail-in” is on! The Morrison government has released for consultation a new law that bans cash transactions over $10,000. The pretext for this law is to crack down on money laundering and tax evasion in the “black economy”. This is a shameless lie! The formal recommendation to ban cash comes from “big four” global accounting firm KPMG, which is an accomplice of the world’s biggest money launderers and tax evaders. The real purpose for the cash ban is to trap Australians in the banking system, so they cannot escape negative interest rates or having their bank deposits “bailed in”.

Scott Morrison first announced this measure in the 2018 budget, originally to come into force this month, but now scheduled for January 2020. It was recommended in the October 2017 Black Economy Taskforce Report by Michael Andrew AO (who died last month), a former chief of global accounting giant KPMG. The report revealed that the strategy is to: “Move people and businesses out of cash and into the banking system, which makes economic activity more visible, auditable and efficient.” (Emphasis added.) It gives the game away by noting that it may benefit “financial stability and the effectiveness of monetary policy”—code for policies like bail-in and negative interest rates. To achieve this it recommended: “Moving to a near cash free economy. A $10,000 economy-wide cash limit should be introduced.” But $10,000 is just the beginning: in June 2018, just after Morrison announced it, KPMG was already lobbying Treasury to lower the limit to $5,000 or even $2,000.

Deception and stealth

When Morrison released the exposure draft of his bail-in law in 2017, he did so on a Friday afternoon when there would be no media attention. Only a sharp-eyed CEC staffer spotted it and recognised it as bail-in, enabling the CEC to mobilise a massive nationwide campaign against it which continues to this day. The government is being equally sneaky with this law. Treasurer Josh Frydenberg quietly released the exposure draft of the legislation, called the Currency (Restrictions on the Use of Cash) Bill 2019, last Friday afternoon, 26 July, and has allowed only two weeks for public comment.

The exposure draft of the bill has two notable features:

  1. It bans ALL cash transactions over $10,000, enforced with a penalty of two years jail;
  2. Division 2 is blank, containing only the words “To be inserted”.

What is the government hiding by releasing an incomplete draft, on a Friday afternoon, and allowing only two weeks for public consultation?

The deception doesn’t end there. In its explanation of the law, the government has sought to make it palatable by emphasising that there will be exemptions to the cash ban, including depositing and withdrawing cash in banks, and, curiously, most consumer-to-consumer transactions, such as for a second-hand car. However, the exemptions are not in the legislation. They are in a separate regulatory instrument to be issued by the Minister after the legislation is passed. This means that they are not permanent, but that in the future, the Minister will be able to scrap the exemptions without requiring new legislation. This is the “salami tactic”: first pass the law in a form that is politically palatable, and then slice off key changes. In a bail-in scenario, for instance, under the current regulation people fearing bail-in may withdraw all of their money from the bank, but the Minister will be able to issue a new regulation that suddenly stops people from withdrawing more than $10,000.

Not about money laundering

This law is emphatically not about controlling money laundering and the black economy. The vast majority of money laundering and tax evasion is done by banks and corporations, not individuals. And who helps banks and corporations do it? The big four global accounting firms, including KPMG, whose boss Michael Andrew recommended this cash ban! The big four literally write the tax laws that enable corporations to evade tax, and dominate the offshore tax havens like the Cayman Islands that exist for tax evasion and money laundering. When Michael Andrew was the global boss of KPMG—the only Australian ever to lead the worldwide operations of a big four firm—two of KPMG’s biggest clients, British banks HSBC and Standard Chartered, were caught in 2012 by US authorities in massive money laundering operations. In other words, KPMG assisted its clients to launder money, but is using money laundering as the excuse to take away the rights of Australians to use cash!

The real reason: bail-in and negative interest rates

Money laundering and tax evasion are nothing new, that they would suddenly require this “solution”. What is new is the plunge in the public’s confidence in the banks, especially since the global financial crisis. But instead of properly reforming the banks to restore the public’s confidence, through policies such as Glass-Steagall, which separates normal banking from the financial gambling that causes crises, authorities around the world have resorted to insane and in fact criminal measures that further destroy confidence in the banks.

The two most egregious measures are the criminal bail-in policy and the insane move to negative interest rates; bail-in steals deposits to prop up failing banks, while negative interest rates force customers to pay to keep their money in the bank. Both are coming to Australia. Morrison snuck his bail-in law through the Senate in February 2018 with only eight senators present in the chamber and no recorded vote. The Reserve Bank of Australia has aggressively slashed interest rates to 1 per cent, and in the banking crisis that is brewing right now they will feel compelled to follow countries like Japan and Switzerland down past zero and into negative territory, as the International Monetary Fund is recommending.

Both bail-in and negative interest rates destroy confidence in the security of bank deposits, which motivates people to take their money out of the bank and hold it in cash. This is the experience in Japan and Europe. So like some European countries, Australia is banning cash to force people to use the banking system so they cannot escape these policies, under threat of two years jail.

Fascism is the use of state power to benefit private corporations; by definition, this is a fascist assault on the freedom of Australians to use cash and not private banks. The CEC is calling on all concerned Australians to demand the government scrap this law and reform the banking system instead!

What you can do

The government has allowed only two weeks for submissions, in order to avoid scrutiny. Don’t let them get away with it! We have until 12 August to swamp Treasury with letters and emails, demanding they drop this law. Write an email or letter today to the Treasury: state your objection to any law that removes your right to use cash, and demand the government restore confidence in the banking system by properly reforming the system, not by trapping people in the system so they can’t escape policies like bail-in.

Flood victims unable to access flood disaster grants in NW Qld

Natural disaster funding a ‘con’

by Jim O’Toole Townsville bureau

The Federal Government’s aid package for grazing property owners is a terrible confidence trick still being played on survivors of the horrendous floods in North Western Queensland.

More than 600,000 head of cattle were estimated to have been lost in the February, 2019 deluge.

Shane Stone was chosen by the Federal Government to sell its dodgy flood compensation scheme. The Federal Government is playing a terrible trick on NW Qld flood victims where more than 600,000 cattle perished in February floods

Prior to the federal election held on May 18, 2019 the government appointed former Northern Territory Chief Minister Shane Stone to sell their Clayton’s recovery package which involves a so-called $400,000 grant.

This week the Queensland Rural and Industry Development Authority has placed advertisements in regional newspapers offering these grants of $400,000 for restocking lost livestock, replanting lost or damaged crops repairing or replacing damaged or lost on-farm infrastructure.

A meeting of affected landowners held in Winton in April was told the $400,000 federal grant was available to individual graziers who had matching funds.

In other words if a family farmer had $400,000 in his bank account, the grant was available.

It was pointed out at the meeting by a flood victim that the entire North Western region had been in a seven year drought before the ‘Great Flood’ event.

“How would any of us have $400,000 in the bank after feeding stock for so long?” the grazier asked.

Mr Stone was at great pains to explain the ‘grant’ was just that; no repayments were required provided there were matching funds.

The lasting legacy of the flood has already seen an exodus of generational farmers from the area with predictions of more to leave.

They are unable to continue on their properties, some held for more than 100 years, because they simply have given up hope.

The national cattle herd numbers are seriously depleted due to ongoing drought in all eastern states.

Suitable replacement cattle are not available for restocking.

Governments have deployed counsellors and financial advisors to the area trying to stem widespread bouts of personal depression and giving financial advice to stressed farmers in an effort to extract them from this economic maelstrom.

Alan Jones says Adani wants railway line coal freight to prop up its mine

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.

Alan Jones slams Adani decision

Senator Jim Molan, Senator for NSW Liberal Party of Australia was too honest and smart for the Liberals or Nationals.

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.

Labor wants to get rid of Anglo Saxon farmers and replace them with Chinese tenants

by Andrew Mackinnon

Thanks a lot for reminding me of the machinations of the Labor Party. Since I share your contempt for the Labor Party and since this website posts comments made in good faith without censoring them like the mainstream media, it’s my great pleasure to share my perspective on your comment.

The Labor Party is enthusiastic about progressive income taxation when a flat rate of 20% on all income above the tax free threshold is what would be fair. Who wants to work more than one day out of five to support the needs of the nation via taxation? It’s not necessary.

(What is the purpose of progressive income taxation? It’s to maximise income taxation revenue. Why? The official reason is so that the money can be given to those with less via old age pensions and unemployment benefits (ie. Newstart). However, this can’t be the real reason because the old age pension in Australia is barely adequate and Newstart allowance is much less than adequate. So, what’s the real reason? It’s to fund government spending that funnels super profits to the private entities that the government pays to deliver its projects. An example is $50 billion to French entities for submarines. A huge percentage of that figure is gratuitous super profit – money for nothing. That super profit is paid for out of the income taxes of Australian citizens.

If the government doesn’t have enough income tax revenue to fund largesse like this, it doesn’t let that stop it from pursuing this scam that transfers wealth out of the public purse to private entities. It borrows money by issuing government bonds in order to fund its spending on projects so that the private entities delivering the project can receive their super profits and thereby increases this transfer of wealth. Now, taxpayers are not only on the hook for repaying the cost of the project out of future income taxes to the bondholders who lent the money to the government, they’re on the hook for paying the bondholders a yield of something like 5% per annum on the money that the bondholders have lent to the government. The government’s enthusiasm for increasing debt by issuing bonds is deliberate. Wealthy entities are keen to earn a guaranteed 5% yield on their wealth by lending to the government and the government is keen to make it happen by borrowing (for projects that transfer super profits to the private entities delivering the projects) because the government has been hijacked by traitors who are committed to making this transfer of wealth from the public to the private purse happen.

I know that the Liberal Party is famous for this financially traitorous behaviour and that the Liberal Party is responsible for the example above of $50 billion for submarines, however, the Labor Party does this also. The same principle applies.)

The Labor Party introduced capital gains tax in the 1980s which should be abolished. Capital gains tax is in direct opposition to property rights. If somebody saves up some money and then invests it in shares (or anything for that matter), they quite obviously don’t have full property rights to it because if they later sell it for more than they paid for it, the government wants a cut of the gain via capital gains tax. If they had full property rights to it, they could sell it and keep the full amount they receive for it without paying any capital gains tax.

The Labor Party introduced compulsory superannuation in the 1990s, which has resulted in a significant percentage (eg. 9.5/109.5 x 100% = 8.7%) of citizens income being compulsorily confiscated week after week after week. Employers don’t pay employees superannuation as a gift. Employees earn it via their work. The fact that employees endure this loss of what is their property – income that they’ve worked for, is more evidence of the Labor Party’s animosity and hostility towards property rights. Such hostility towards property rights is one of the ten planks of communism. Property rights is a biblical concept and is a foundation stone of western societies.

Regarding taking over private land like farming land, I have negligible expertise regarding agriculture, however my guess is that Labor’s enthusiasm for “vegetation management” laws is all about its animosity towards Anglo-Saxon farmers. My guess is that it’s not that Labor isn’t interested in agriculture. I think the problem for Australia is that Labor is hostile towards farmers of Anglo-Saxon ancestry – likewise the Liberal Party. My guess is that it intends to drive Anglo-Saxon farmers out of business via vegetation management laws so that it can obtain their land and then sell the land to China so that the Chinese can farm it. Why China? Because that’s who the Australian government has been selling a lot of land to. Why China? Because communism in China was establish by Jews – it’s not common knowledge, just like communism in Russia was established by Jews – also not common knowledge. With the United States and Australia both similarly under the thumb of Jewish rule, who has their manufacturing, land and who knows what else been sold out to? China.

Jihadists bomb Christian school kids in Syria

Shorten said he will allow another 50,000 Muslims into Australia if he is elected. Remember the Muslim vote controls 15 federal electorates across Sydney and Melbourne. The Liberals are nearly as corrupt on immigration

The Islamists who launched the missiles belong to the terror group Hayat Tahrir al-Sham, which was previously affiliated with the al Qaeda, reported Syrian Arab News Agency (SANA).

Jihadists bombed the Syria Christian village of Al-Sekelbiya (Suqaylabiyah) Sunday, killing at least four children during a catechism lesson along with their teacher and leaving another six children injured, according to local media.

The Pontifical Foundation Aid to the Church in Need (ACN) reported that four catechism students between the ages of six and ten years — Jessica, Bashar, Angy, and Suheir — died in the missile attack, which targeted the catechetical school of Al-Sekelbiya.

Other reports have placed the number of children who died at five.

Franciscan Father Hanna Jallouf, parish priest of the Latin church of Knaye, in Idlib, said that “rebels bombed the Christian city of Al-Sekelbiya. They hit the catechetical center killing 5 children and their catechist.”

“The situation is precarious because of the clashes between the regular army and the rebels,” said Father Jallouf. “That is why many have had to leave their homes and have come with us. They live under the trees with the earth for their bed and the sky as their blanket.”

“Many people die because of this dirty war. We hope that this massacre ends soon,” the priest said.

Liberal Frank Beveridge supports Labor’s nationwide land clearing ban

from Jim O’Toole

Farmers in Bob Katter’s Kennedy electorate have been warned the Liberal candidate in the upcoming election has agreed with Labor’s intention of halting all land clearing in Australia.

Liberal Frank Beveridge, along with a Labor hopeful, at a candidates forum held in Mareeba two weeks ago said he was “100 per cent behind” Labor’s harsh clearing laws.

LNP candidate for Kennedy Frank Beveridge supports Labor’s proposed national clearing ban which will bring agricultural production to a halt within a few years

Some members of the audience expressed astonishment at hearing a Liberal candidate support clearing laws which had brought the state to a standstill and mercilessly prosecuted farmers through the courts for knocking down a tree or shrub in their paddocks.

Mareeba is a large farming and grazing district to the west of Cairns which has supported Bob Katter for decades as a true representative of rural Queenslanders who has consistently opposed Labor’s stringent vegetation management laws.

Katter said the Labor Party and now it seemed the Liberals had no interest in the rural sector and Deputy Premier Jackie Trad would like to see it closed down forcing farmers out of business.

Meanwhile Lakeland farmers after a meeting with government representatives have reported that the State Government plans to further penalise farmers by charging them licence fees to cultivate their fallowed paddocks.

Whatever happened to freehold rights which the duopoly has trashed?

State Leader of Katters Australian Party Robbie Katter said the next election would see Labor lose its majority by KAP getting at least three more members elected.

He said his team would be in a powerful position to clean up the ALP and LNP mess by reversing draconian legislation.
