by Robert J Lee
Quarries across Australia are stripping our non-renewable resources and our national heritage enabling our emerging enemy to make more steel and aluminium for its armaments which will eventually be used on us.
It’s somewhat ironical that Australians when ultimately forced into protecting our shores and the few resources we have left, will be killed by tanks, ships, munitions and explosives made from Australian iron ore and bauxite.
The political party duopoly has been beholden to China for decades and the basket case of Victoria is an outstanding example of Chinese influence over state governments and individual politicians from all parties. Bribes are a way of life.
Bribes paid to politicians and their parties are considered as an operating expense for the Communist Chinese government and is a normal business practice as we have seen in Victoria with Premier Dan Andrews’ Belt and Road project.
It begs the question as to the whereabouts of Premier ’Dangerous’ Dan Andrews, a communist sycophant who it is believed was bashed senseless and is supposedly in a Melbourne hospital.
Cairnsnews was told by a Victorian reporter it was strongly suspected Chinese interests gave him a touch up for not delivering on their invasive project designed to turn the state into a CCP satellite.
Recently, a nest of Chinese military operatives was flushed off Yam Island in the Torres Strait before they could get well established.
Cairnsnews has been told the brother of a Labor member of State Parliament was involved in the deal with the Chinese.
They had bribed an island inhabitant with a new boat, a car and other incentives in exchange for a house which they turned into a grocery shop and a base for 9 Oceans Fisheries, a shelf company owned by Chinese Nationals. The local council was unaware of the planned outpost.
None of the four Chinese men of military appearance and behavior, all being aged under 35 seemed to have any fishing experience and as none could speak English or the local language, had little chance of buying crayfish from local fishermen.
After federal MP Bob Katter in Parliament, exposed the plan to establish a CCP spy post right under the noses of authorities, the operatives were gone by the next day.
Treacherous Australian politicians and their political parties sold the country out long ago and one worrying deal involved former Prime Minister Bob Hawke in 2012.
As Prime MInister and in retirement Hawke became another Chinese asset with close ties to Australian governments. He brokered a deal between the West Australian government and the Chinese government to buy Stage 2 of the Ord River Irrigation Scheme.
“In 2012 the Chinese Shanghai Zhongfu group wanted to grow its own irrigated sugar cane in the $311m second-stage expansion of the Ord irrigation project.
To top off this farmer coup-de-grace, former Prime Minister Bob Hawke is acting as gigolo for a Chinese conglomerate offering to buy 15,000 hectares of prime farming country east of Kunnunurra in Western Australia.” (Cairnsnews April 2012)
The WA government accepted the Chinese deal in deference to 13 Australian companies and individual farmers who tendered for the project. Hawke’s commission on the Ord River sale was a reported $11 million.
It was widely suggested at the time WA politicians did extremely well. It seems since 2012 not much has changed while the LNP Federal Government falls over itself to sell China more of Australia and more of our non-renewable mineral resources.
The Queensland Labor Party allowed Anglo-Swiss mining giant Glencore to take over a former Chinese-owned mining lease several years ago and the miner has just done a deal with Mitsibushi Development to extract 357 million tonnes of bauxite from its Aurukun, Cape York site for sale on the international market.
The headlines resonated with 650 jobs in the offing as the $500m deal was done.
Why is Australia not developing our own non-renewable iron ore and bauxite deposits to make alumina and manufacture motor vehicles, aircraft, building materials and many other goods?
Rio Tinto has been mining bauxite at Weipa for 50 years but has not got the show to itself anymore. A new neighbour at Mapoon is Brisbane company Metro Mining which is about to restart its operation after the wet season.
Metro is a fly-in-fly out operation that provides a limited number of jobs for local indigenous workers and has most of its supplies shipped in by barge from the south. Like the Metro operation Glencore will provide little return for an economically ailing Cape York.
Federal and State Governments should be legislating for all miners on Cape York to contribute towards an entire new value-adding refining and smelting installation to be built near Weipa producing alumina ingots.
Instead of sending ingots to China from its Boyne Island smelter, which is under threat of closure, Rio should be restricting output and selling their entire production onshore to Australian industry for manufacturing vehicles, boats, aircraft and every other item that Australians pay through the nose from overseas factories.
Unfortunately senior politicians and their parties have become so compromised, as we have seen recent evidence of in federal and state parliaments, that the Deep State has prevented any sovereign manufacturing industry from starting again.
Australia the quarry, was confirmed by the compromised, alleged pedophile, PM Paul Keating when he said in 1994, “Australia is to become a service country only, and I can’t understand why anyone would want to live more than 100 klms inland from our shores….”
BOB Katter, Federal Member for Kennedy has had a gut-full of China’s trade terror tactics on Australian producers and has slammed the Federal Government for failing to aggressively market our produce to other countries.
It comes as China began its investigation into anti-dumping allegations, slapping Aussie wine makers with a 200 per cent duty from midnight.
Mr Katter said, “We wouldn’t be in this position if the lazy, useless b.a.s.t.a.r.d.s, who occupy – with their big fat backsides – the parliamentary benches in Brisbane and Canberra, got out there like Jack McEwen did when Britain went into the Common Market and we lost 30 per cent of our exports.
“McEwen drew up an agreement on the supply of beef, grain and coal into Japan – all of which made us extremely unpopular because it was only 20 years after the war – but it was successful.
“But they have done absolutely nothing to develop alternative markets. Clearly the VIP countries, Vietnam, Indonesia and the Philippines, our bloody neighbours who have 700m people living there should be the priority?!.
“China may think they are tough and big and throw their weight around, but it was stupid that they picked a fight with the Muslim provinces, the Mongolian provinces, they have picked a fight with India and they have picked a fight with the United States, and that’s not a smart thing to do.
“They have managed to pick a fight with everyone – and well, I don’t know of any fights they have ever even won against Japan – but I certainly wouldn’t be provoking that little tiger either.
“It sure would be nice if we had 300 patrol boats with 60 cruise missiles on the back of them so we can defend our country. And yes, it may cost two per cent of the federal budget, but quite frankly it’s not going to break the bank.
“We must remember that we live on an island, with vast coastline, and are extremely vulnerable. We are overwhelmingly a European country in the middle of Asia with a landmass that is completely empty.
“You take out the coastal strip from Cairns through to Sydney, Melbourne and Adelaide, and take out a little dot around Perth, well you have less than one million people living there.
“And in that wasteland is all of our oil, all of our gas, all of our bauxite, and all of our coal and all of the nation’s water.
“’A land without people will be taken by a people without land’. That is the truism of history,” Mr Katter warned.
“So get off your backside and go chase up the VIP countries, get off your backside and do something about protecting us!”
Letter to the Editor
The call by Mr Bob Katter to the purported Federal Government to restart an Australian car industry has fallen on deaf ears, just like pleas from thousands of intelligent Australians over the last 35 plus years who demanded that we build new power stations, irrigation dams, steel mills, metal refineries and a host of manufacturing industries.
This political criminal faction has instead facilitated the destruction of most of our agricultural industries and most of our manufacturing. My advice for the well intentioned Mr Katter is to save his breath.
Instead ask SCOMO to explain to the people why he wants to destroy the means of supporting our people.
Just like all the “governments” since Hawkes junta, SCOMO and ALBO are totally committed to the genocidal policies contained in the infamous UN Rio Bio Diversity Treaty, and it’s agenda for the 21st century. Labor and LNP endorsed it in 1992. They have never dared to tell this to the people. They wouldn’t last a day if they did.
The Paris accord organised by the Pope strengthened its nation destroying measures.These people are totally committed to participation in reducing (murdering) the world’s population to less than 500 million. This is worse than Hitler, Mao and Stalin combined. Exposure of this crime is of paramount importance.
KAP Leader, Robbie Katter said it’s quite clear major businesses and government are closely aligned with China, after the ACCC cleared the way for China Mengniu Dairy to takeover Lion’s dairy and drinks portfolio.
“Unlike Australia, China’s government looks after the Chinese people first and foremost,” he said.
“It’s no secret that they have an insatiable appetite for our goods and industry and when it comes to their interests compared to ours, of course we will lose.
“Governments have proven time and again that they are less than willing to correct that imbalance.”
The State Member for Traeger said it was a bad outcome for the nation’s dairy farmers.
“While foreign investment is nothing new to the dairy industry, it still remains a characteristic of the government culture in Australia,” he said.
Federal Member for Kennedy, Bob Katter said he was sick of the blood sucking Sydney suits selling their country out.
“They get their 30 pieces of sliver for selling their country but I am certain they will rot in Hell,” Mr Katter said.
“The government is a joke. It’s not a government. It doesn’t bear any resemblance to a government.
“They are not reflecting the will of the people. The only will Australia’s governments reflect is the one they see in the mirror.”
Mr Katter said he was taking his fight against the foreign takeover of Australia to the Parliament; just last week he introduced the Foreign Acquisitions and Takeovers Amendment (Strategic Assets) Bill 2020.
Ten years ago Australia had five car manufacturers, Ford, GMH, Toyota, Nissan and Mitsubishi.
Now we have none. All gone overseas and the reason given? Costs were to high. Funny in that the cars we are now importing (Malaysia etc) are no cheaper.
I remember back in 1968 living in Brisbane, when the 3 major cities back then were Sydney, Melbourne & Adelaide a nd Adelaide was the Industrial City.
Adelaide – South Australia, was where you went to work in the Iron Ore Industry, or where you could get a job making railway tracks for B.H.P.
You could get a job building ships, submarines, cars, washing machines, fridges, TV’s, Hills hoists, Victa Lawn Mowers or make tyres at Bridgestone tyres.
Lightburn Washing Machine Company even made a car called a Zeta. It was not much of a car, but at least it was Australian and we built it. I worked at Stanvac where we made our own Petrol, Diesel, Kerosene and Oil. We had Oil Rigs in Bass Straight, North West Shelf and the Timor Sea. We even had Australian owned Service Stations like (H.C. Sleigh) Golden Fleece and many of us young wanna-be mechanics back then worked as a driveway attendant. (Just like Stanley).
I remember catching a train from the city to Gawler and then on to Freeling, Hamley Bridge, Stockport, Riverton, up to Clare, Gladstone, Laura etc. And all these towns were bustling with activity, and on the weekends they were all open for business. Our shops were filled on every shelf with food and products all proudly made or grown, in Australia. Our fridge was full of Lamb Chops and Steaks because it was cheap as we were a huge Lamb and Beef growing Nation. And once a month Mum would make us all a delicacy! It was called a Sunday Roast Chicken.
I remember when we all had trade skills and high quality tools that would last and last. But most of all we had Mates. We as Australians watched each other’s backs even if we had not met yet, and we all said G’Day to everyone with a smile. Our kids could go anywhere they liked on their bikes, just as long as they were home before dark.
Australia was pretty safe back then. Yes, Australia was once a self supporting nation that had it all. It had Farms that produced our dairy, fruit & vegies and meats etc. And Politicians back then were known as Statesmen and they were voted by the people, for the people, on behalf of the people and did what the people wanted.
We had public utilities owned by us the people, that guaranteed our Electricity, Water and Sewage forever.
No one knew how much the Snowy Mountain Scheme cost, we just built it.
No one knew how much the Sydney Harbour Bridge or the Indian-Pacific railway cost!
WE JUST BUILT IT!
Then came CORPORATE GREED.
Now everything above has GONE.
Now we don’t watch each other’s backs anymore but watch each other through security bars, burglar alarms, and security screens.
Now we dob each other in.
Now we import poor quality processed food.
Now we import cheap tools that break just taking them out of the packet they come in.
Now we rely on ships to bring in our fuels.
Now we can’t afford our own Lamb or Beef anymore.
Now we eat steroid pumped chicken just about every day.
Now we import trade skill workers on 457 Visa’s.
Now we have high unemployment as nearly all of our Industry and Manufacturing has gone offshore.
Now we have that many Laws that we have just about outlawed ourselves.
But I guess we need even more laws, so now we will have Sharia Law as well. We now pay for water that falls out of the sky at $3.80 a litre.
Now we have taxes for everything.
Taxes for carbon, taxes for sake of having taxes, (They call them Levy’s).
And don’t forget the newest tax is the ISLAMIC TAX (Halal Certification)
Now here in South Australia in our towns we have Railway Stations and railway tracks, but no trains.
We have Public Bus Stops in our Towns but no buses. We have Hospitals and Clinics but very few Doctors or Nurses.
We all have Mobile Phones, and have little to no reception.
We have Digital TV’s with Bugger all Signal in the country.
And the worst of all, is our once great nation is being sold off, piece by piece to every other country on earth, except us.
Tis very sad but very true! Enjoy whats left while you can?
The Australia we knew when growing up is now STUFFED!!!

Letter to the Editor
Dear Prime Minister,
I write with concern and trepidation, with regard to the published “Lima Agreement” signed off on by Australia in 1975 by (the late) Labor senator and Foreign Affairs Minister Don Willesee and successive governments on both sides of the house have been complicit in betraying Australia. Yes betraying Australia, until we are at the point where our economy will implode. We have appeasers soothing over our questions and calling us nay-sayers.
(Television personality Mike Willesee is a son of Don Willesee-Editor)
Well Winston Churchill once said, an appeaser is one who feeds the crocodile, hoping it will eat him last. How true.
Currently, I see no voter having any respect for politicians, you have shown yourselves to be self serving time servers. Yet again today we see and read of another tawdry episode by a politician.
But will they charge the national politician ? Will they hell, no doubt he will be quietly given a promotion and hidden from sight.
PM, your whole rotten morass can sink no lower, the many folks I have spoken to just won’t waste their time even discussing politicians.
It is easily seen now that Australia is slave to the UN, to Agenda 21(now 30) and the Lima Agreement.
Thank you very much for selling out our great land, you are traitors all.

Buggered with Asbestos (Navy) but still willing to fight for my country.

How Whitlam paved the way to destroy manufacturing by signing Lima Declaration 1975
Senator ANNING (Queensland): I rise today to oppose and condemn the Customs Amendment (Comprehensive and Progressive Agreement for Trans-Pacific Partnership Implementation) Bill 2018 and related bills, that enable what is commonly called the Trans-Pacific Partnership. This agreement is bad for Aussie business and bad for Aussie workers and families. Because of this, I foreshadow that I will be moving a second reading amendment to the bill.
The Trans-Pacific Partnership agreement might be great for Vietnam, the Philippines and other low-wage Third World economies, but it is very bad for Australia. This agreement is but the latest in a long line of deals with foreign countries that give away Aussie jobs and industry to supposedly disadvantaged foreign nations, beginning with Whitlam, who put a wrecking ball through Australian industry with his unilateral tariff cuts. Subsequent Liberal and Labor governments have all been infatuated with the internationalist vision of trade. In 1975, the Whitlam government signed the United Nations Lima Declaration, through which the Australian government sold out Australian industries and workers by specifically agreeing to transfer manufacturing to Third World countries, supposedly to help them develop. Almost every move to liberalise trade since that day has led to a net transfer of jobs and industry away from Australia and the current TPP is just the latest outrageous example. Giant transnational corporations love the Lima agreement, of course, since taking jobs away from decently-paid Aussie workers and instead employing Third World semi-slaves made them a fortune. Perhaps that is the reason why both Labor and the Liberals agree on these kinds of trade deals. The Left think that our national prosperity is something to apologise for and that we have an unending obligation to subsidise foreigners. In practice, if not intent, the capitalist globalists agree with them. Transnational corporations don’t care about the best interests of Australians, only their own profits, and profits are larger if you employ Third Worlders on slave wages than if you employ Aussies on decent award wages.
Like all post-Lima declaration trade deals, the TPP will allow foreign multinationals the right to dictate terms to our government regarding rules and regulations. The TPP will see Australia’s sovereignty further eroded. This agreement will allow cheap foreign goods from countries with historically bad safety regulations to flood the Australian market. The TPP will see food from countries with almost non-existent workplace health and safety standards enter Australia—just like the Asian white spot disease, which was introduced and devastated our prawn sector. The TPP will see hardworking Australians fighting against workers whose wages would be considered slavery in Australia. Their wages are so low that they struggle to afford food, shelter or clothing. To protect our sovereignty, food security, wages and work, the TPP agreement must be rejected.
Australia was once a nation of doers, hard workers and builders. We tamed the harsh, dry land of the outback. We built massive infrastructure projects, like the Snowy scheme. Australia was the land of the worker and the farmer. Now, ever since the Whitlam era, we have seen a Liberal-Labor consensus in favour of globalism, foreign ownership, exporting jobs and importing cheap foreign labour. This has resulted in Australia becoming the land of unemployed university graduates and foreign workers. Our major parties have allowed Australia to become a nation without work, with our remaining major industries, mining and hospitality, digging things up and selling them to foreigners, and serving dinner and drinks to our foreign overlords. Our once prosperous economy has been raided and pillaged by multinational corporations. That is exactly what Australia has seen with these global trade agreements.
We have seen the demand for labour drop as factories move overseas, while the major parties allow foreign workers to flood the country. This has caused the devastating problems of wage stagnation and the casualisation of our workforce. Without a proper wage and stable, full-time work, how can Australians provide for their families? Before Whitlam, 70 per cent of the Australian workforce were employed in decent, well-paid jobs in manufacturing. Now there are barely any. One-sided trade deals since the Lima declaration, like the TPP, have seen almost all of our manufacturing closed down. The Liberal-Labor consensus is happy to see the whitegoods industry gone, the textile industry gone, the glass industry gone, the steel industry gone and, of course, the Aussie motor industry gone. Whatever we have left will be destroyed by the TPP.
The first focus of any Australian government should be the long-term security and prosperity of Australian families and Australia. Families are only strong when there is stable, well-paying, full-time work. A nation is only strong when families are thriving. My amendment goes to the heart of this issue. My amendment will provide that further consideration of the bill will be postponed until the TPP agreement is renegotiated to exclude countries with low wage levels and countries that provide direct or indirect subsidies for key products. My amendment will protect the jobs and conditions of Aussie workers. I ask my Senate colleagues to think again about this UN-inspired globalist compact, voting for my amendment or rejecting these bills if my amendment is unsuccessful.
