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

The validity of the Federal Government’s backpacker tax is under fire, a year on from the legislation passing the parliament.
It’s almost exactly a year since the Coalition struck a deal with the Greens to impose a 15 per cent tax rate on working holiday makers.
But proceedings initiated in the Queensland Federal Court today claim the backpacker tax breaches international treaties and discriminates against foreign workers.
The backpacker tax taxes all working holiday maker earnings at 15 per cent. Previously, they were eligible to earn up to $18,200 tax free.
Irish-based Taxback.com has initiated the legal action on behalf of workers from the United Kingdom, United States and Germany.
“There is a breach with double taxation agreements,” Taxback.com’s Eileen Devereaux told the ABC.
“There’s an audience that arguably don’t have a voice on the ground.”
The legal action claims the backpacker tax is in breach with treaties Australia has with the UK, US, Germany, Finland, Chile, Japan, Norway and Turkey.
Ms Devereaux said workers from these countries represent 50 per cent of people who travel to Australia on 417 and 462 working holiday visas.
A spokesman for Treasurer Scott Morrison said he could not comment on the matter because it was now before the court.
The news has come as a surprise to federal politicians and agricultural lobby groups.
All had assumed the debate was over and industries had adopted the new tax rates.
Prior to last year’s deal with the Greens, the backpack tax debate raged for 18 months, with the agricultural and tourism sectors claiming the uncertainty was harming their industries.
Ms Deveraux said international lawyers wrote to the government to flag their legal action in September.
She said the government responded to that letter and she hoped further negotiations would ensue.
Ms Devereaux said she hoped the government would seek to reinstate previous working holiday maker legislation to prevent the legal action from needing to proceed.
She said the backpacker tax risked giving Australia a poor international reputation.
“These individuals are de facto ambassadors for Australia,” Ms Devereaux said.
“They ultimately fuel the tourism industry and sector into the future when they bring back their various experiences of Australia locally.”
‘Agnotology in Vaccines – the cultural ignorance induced by the publication of misleading and inaccurate scientific data’
Governments around the world are mandating vaccines at a rate of knots and the safety studies have NEVER been done!
The vaccine debate is not all as it seems. Vaccines DO kill and maim every day and you aren’t being told about it!
Pixie Seymour is helping to end this culture of ignorance by lifting the lid on the foul practice that is agnotology in vaccines. Find out who’s who and join the dots of the vaccine industry here in Australia and elsewhere (and it’s way more shocking than you think!) She has a background in marketing and natural health and is a mother of four children. Only one is of school age and once she found out what’s in vaccines, she realised that her youngest child is in the firing line. It’s personal for Pixie.
With her background in marketing, Pixie aims to beat the computer algorithms and get this book in front of as many order followers as possible, but she needs your help.
This is a once in a lifetime opportunity to virtually force TPTSB (The Powers That Shouldn’t Be) to take a fresh look at vaccination and the damage that it’s doing to our children. Relying on misleading and inaccurate scientific data has resulted in a dead and severely disabled generation of children and a tainted human genome. This must stop!
Get on over to help change this horrific situation of harming children at the behest of those that profit from it, today.
Lui claims Cook but the ALP is not yet over the line
Anxious candidates across the state are awaiting the final counting of postal and absentee votes as ECQ staff work overtime to sort through the backlog.
One Nation, KAP and the LNP are waiting for the final tally to determine how many seats the ALP will have to form a majority.
The ALP has claimed the contentious seat of Cook stretching from Mareeba in the south to the PNG border in the north, however One Nation sources say the counting will not finish until Tuesday night when the final postal votes are counted.
The final postal and absentee numbers will have an impact on preference flows to the One Nation candidate Jen Sackley, who seems set to overtake the lead of the Labor candidate Cynthia Lui.
KAP candidate Gordon Rasmussen said either his preferences or those from the LNP would help One Nation get across the line.
“The staff at the Mareeba ECQ office have been outstanding with the counting and very helpful to scrutineers and I thank them for their great effort,” said Mr Rasmussen.
“Their integrity has never been in question but I am concerned about the reports of suspicious activities on Cape York Peninsula which happens after every election on the Cape.”
Rev Fred Nile says people are deserting the Liberal Party in droves; Tim Nicholls just doesn’t get it
Queensland Liberal leader Tim Nicholls in a Parliamentary address advised voters to support same sex marriage before the poll
The Queensland Christian lobby gets even with the Liberal Party, watch out Malcolm Turnbull and Bill Shorten
On Monday 27 November 2017, the federal Attorney General gave a press statement concerning the government’s plans to legislate so-called “same sex marriage” by the end of the year, and in which he asserted that:
“There is absolutely no inconsistency between giving effect to marriage equality [sic] and protecting religious freedom. The two are entirely consistent with one another […] I don’t favour and I’m sure the Australian people don’t favour using the result of the marriage survey as a platform to reopen a broader debate about discrimination law.”
Rev Fred Nile MLC makes the following comments:
- “The Turnbull government’s cynical manipulation of the results of the survey illustrates a betrayal of the Australian public.”
- “What people of conscience fear is not that their beliefs will be interfered with, they fear being prevented from living their lives according to those beliefs.”
- “Senator Brandis is a senior legal practitioner. He knows very well that the proposed legislation will change social norms and therefore the perception of acceptable conduct, for both individuals and business.”
- “Pretending to be oblivious to what we have been witnessing overseas is an insult to everyone, no matter how they voted in the survey.”
- “Senator Brandis has opened the floodgates to litigation, or the threats of litigation, that will restrict associational and expressive freedoms. That’s not what the people of Australia voted on in the marriage survey.”
- “There has been no better proof that the Coalition government has betrayed its small government and freedom oriented philosophies. It is not surprising that its voters are deserting the Liberal National parties in droves.”
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”.
“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.

Letter to the editor
The Canberra Times
Now that the High Court has shown it will almost strictly interpret OUR constitution, will we now see those who are “entitled” to the rights and privileges of citizens of foreign powers willingly or otherwise be removed from OUR parliament?
There are many who are in the proverbial cleft stick as they have parents who are citizens of Great Britain, Greece and others. If you have, for instance, renounced your British citizenship, you may still recover it by way of application and the Home Secretary will approve it unless you have a criminal record or an unstable mind. Apparently you will only have it returned once, but to reapply for it to rid yourself of it demonstrates a disloyalty to Australia.
Those born of German parents automatically gain German citizenship, as with George Henry Brandis.
How many other of those sitting in OUR federal parliament are ineligible according to Section 44?

Vexatious assault charges against David Walter by two Cairns court protective officers were dropped today at a trial in the Cairns Magistrates Court.
On the second day of the hearing, Chief Magistrate Ray Rinaudo allowed the police prosecutor to discontinue.
After eight witnesses for the defence gave their evidence that Walter did not assault the police officers, the prosecutor dropped the charges, which if found guilty, could have seen Walter jailed for a considerable time.
The moral of this story is that the bull-headed police, as most journalists know, form the thick blue line, and the prosecutor and the DPP are not afraid of spending more than $40,000 of Cairns Police District’s scant taxpayer operational funds to pursue a knowingly vexatious charge against a former senior police officer with 37 years unblemished service.
Details of Charge:
Charge 1 of 2 Bench Charge Sheet reference: 1701928063
Criminal Code (CC) – [CC] 340(2AA)(a)&(a)(ii) Serious assault public officer performing function causing bodily harm.
That on the 22nd day of May 2017 at Cairns City in the State of Queensland one David John Walter unlawfully assaulted Mark Francis Webb a public officer whilst Mark Francis Webb was performing a function of his office and it is further alleged that the assault by the said David John Walter caused bodily harm to the said public official.
Charge 2 of 2 Bench Charge Sheet reference: 1701928080
Criminal Code (CC) – [CC] 340(1)(a) Serious assault with intent to commit crime or resist arrest.
That on the 22nd day of May 2017 at Cairns City in the State of Queensland one David John Walter assaulted Matthew David Trezise with intent to prevent the lawful arrest of the said David John Walter.
Address of offence: CAIRNS MAGISTRATES COURT, SHERIDAN ST, CAIRNS CITY, QLD 4870
Occurrence no.: QP1700886562 QPS Reference: Senior Constable C. ERHARDT, 4019883, CAIRNS CIB.
Witnesses said Walter was able to get his entire argument about the court having no authority into the record in spite of the protestations of the prosecutor.
This has been a great day for the vague semblance of justice left in the corporate court system, run by judicial officers who are inside the corporation and lawfully, can only preside over civil matters to do with members of political parties.
Former Labor Premier Peter Beattie’s removal of the Crown in 2001 from the State of Queensland is now coming back to bite him.
These comments have been made by Romley Stewart who attended the court today:
“I know all about the brutality of the Queensland Police and the Government, its a shame because believe it or not, it was the honest Police that told the truth on the stand and could not back up the lies of the one that lied under oath.
I called into the Court today and made a verbal complaint against the officer that lied under oath, the hearing was still going I think, the lying officer was the one that punched me in the back while I was in the watch house, I made a complaint to Sargent Dwan (Nice man) of the Cairns police and he asked me to please keep it internal, which I did and after seeing the same man lying under oath in David’s case, I went and made the complaint that I should have stuck to my guns and made the complaint formal in the first place… Both magistrate Bentley and the Lying Officer should be removed from Queensland Police and the Court…
David raised some very concerning points about the conduct of Queensland Police and Queensland Government while in Court, and even the Magistrate, as good as he was, seemed concerned about the research done by David in relation to the validity of governments since Whitlam signed the UNIDROIT treaty of Rome in 1973 and in relation to the registration of Australian governments being registered to the US SECURITIES AND EXCHANGE COMMISSION, being a foreign banking system.
In relation to the Magistrate Rinaudo, and Magistrates like Magistrate Comens, as corrupt as the system may be, such man do consider and are interested in knowing the truth before making judgement within their Star chamber courts. Well done David, and thanks to Magistrate Rinaudo, for his conduct as well… He respected David from the beginning and gave David plenty of scope in order to get the truth out of this matter…”
Queensland State election to be held on November 25
by Gil Hanrahan in Brisbane
Rumblings from One Nation members have confirmed there is an unhatched master plan in place to elevate Pauline Hanson’s Chief of Staff James Ashby to the senate.
In its usual response the High Court sitting as the Court of Disputed Returns has ordered a recount for the next candidate on the party ticket to replace the ousted Malcolm Roberts, a most competent senator.
Roberts now will stand in the state seat of Ipswich as a part of the plan, to take over the state leadership should sitting One Nation member Steve Dickson(another competent Member) lose his seat of Buderim at the November 25 poll.
In the current episode of sloppy administration by One Nation, the next in line is Fraser Anning, a Gladstone business man.
Sources have revealed that Anning, believed to be close to bankruptcy, suddenly had his creditors paid off allowing him to sit in the senate.
It seems the deal is for Anning to step aside and create a casual vacancy which would allow Pauline Hanson to insert Ashby into the senate.
There is a similar precedent to this scenario going back to the famous case when a hostile Labor Party member,Albert Patrick Field(Pat) was appointed to the senate after union organiser, Senator Bertie Milliner died suddenly. This extract from Wikipedia explains how One Nation could appoint Ashby:
“On 30 June 1975, Bertie Milliner, a Queensland ALP Senator, died suddenly. It had long been a tradition that when a casual vacancy occurred in the Senate, the relevant political party would nominate the replacement to the state premier, and the state parliament would formally appoint the new senator. As was usual practice, the Labor Party nominated only one name, Mal Colston, to replace Milliner. Country Party Premier Joh Bjelke-Petersen asked for a list of three names from which he would choose the replacement; he was possibly relying on a 1962 precedent, when his predecessor, Frank Nicklin, had also required such a list of names. The Labor Party refused to provide a list and insisted on Colston being appointed.
Although Field had long Labor Party and union connections, he was certainly not an active politician and had never before sought to become one. Nevertheless, he made himself known to the Premier’s office and offered his services.
Although he would be technically a Labor Senator, he vowed never to vote for the Whitlam government. Field was conservative and religious and was openly critical of what he saw as a range of “immoral” policies being advanced by Whitlam and his government. That was exactly the sort of person wanted by Bjelke-Petersen, who responded by nominating Field in the Parliament of Queensland as the new senator.”
To the public, One Nation it appears, can do no wrong. Their savage internal politics have seen numerous candidates kicked out because they would not pay Ashby’s Sunshine Coast printing business for election material believing they could buy it cheaper elsewhere. Others have been kicked out for not adhering to Hanson’s ‘it’s my way or the highway’ policy.
This writer does not believe the platitudes coming from the mouth of Liberal leader Tim Nicholls stating he will not do a deal with Hanson to form government. He would do a deal with the devil to grab a hold of the Treasury spoils.
So would Hanson and Ashby, both traditional Liberals with close ties to both the state and federal Liberal parties.
At a Canberra function soon after last year’s federal election, according to a bystander, Hanson’s first comments to Malcolm Turnbull were,” how can I help you Malcolm?” (Cairns News has contacted a bystander and Hanson’s comments were confirmed).
