Labor law firm Slater and Gordon want to rip off taxpayers over Manus Island

Letter to Slater and Gordon, the shameless law firm which protected alleged fraud by solicitor Juliar Gillard, this ALP dominated bunch of lawyers should have been struck off by the Law Society years ago…….

‘I write on behalf of some of my peers and fellow Australians with regard to your action in pursuing compensation for the illegal immigrants on Manus Island.

These immigrants came to Australia without invitation, were rescued by our Defence personnel who put their own lives at risk, were fed and lodged at cost to Australian taxpayers and, were free to return to their own country at any time. The conditions in which they lived on Manus Island are no worse than many legal immigrants who have arrived here for many years and who, in times past, lived in conditions much less well outfitted than those on Manus. They were able to communicate with anyone, anywhere in the world courtesy of the Australian people paying for the privilege of providing the internet and telephone services.

You have stolen money from all Australians, with your alleged human rights claim. We have people in our communities who are homeless, aged and sick who need assistance also. Will you provide legal aid to them free of charge and pay your own costs to represent them ? I think not.

My disdain for your company and their ilk is immeasurable.

I sincerely wish that I could afford to take you to Court and that my request that every illegal on Manus pay back the cost of their rescue and board and lodging, would be granted. That will not of course happen due to the fact that people like yourself have no shame and are willing to extort monies from Australian taxpayers.’

Pumping Snowy River water up hill is another Canberra white elephant

by Viv Forbes, science writer

Canberra breeds many white elephants, but now they are breeding a gigantic new breed of pachyderm in Australia’s Snowy Mountains – a Green Elephant. Grandly named “Snowy 2.0 Hydro-Electric”, it has the compulsory green skin, but it is just another big white elephant under a thick layer of green paint.

Snowy 2.0 plans a hugely expensive complex of dams, tunnels, pumps, pipes, generators, roads and powerlines. Water will be pumped up-hill using grid power in times of low demand, and then released when needed to recover some of that energy. To call it “hydro-electric” is a fraud – it will not store one extra litre of water and will be a net consumer of electric power. It is a giant electric storage battery to be recharged using grid power.

This is just the next episode in an expensive and impossible green dream to run Australian cities and industries, plus a growing electric vehicle fleet, on intermittent wind and solar energy and without coal, gas, oil or nuclear fuels.

Surely we can learn from the unfolding disaster of a similar German Grand Plan:
https://carbon-sense.com/2018/08/29/german-plan-to-abolish-carbon-fuels-fails/

The Liberal’s Snowy River 2.0 version white elephant which former PM Turnbull reckons will be built is a legacy to his (STUPID) green renewable power ideology.

The first stage of Australia’s green dream was to demonise coal and nuclear power, set onerous green energy and CO2 emissions targets, subsidise and mandate the use of intermittent energy from wind and solar, and give electric cars financial and other privileges. All of this costs Australian electricity users and tax payers at least $5 billion per year. This destructive force-feeding of solar and wind power is well advanced.

Solar energy peaks around mid-day, falls to zero from dusk to dawn and is much reduced by clouds, dust and smoke. Over a year it may produce about 16% of name-plate capacity. Thus a solar-battery system would need installed solar capacity of six times the demand. These solar “farms” are very land-hungry per unit of usable energy, often sterilising large areas of agricultural land.

Wind energy is much more erratic – it can produce about 35% of peak capacity but often produces peak power during the night when there is low demand. It may produce zero power for several days. A sudden high wind can send wind power surging onto the grid, and it falls to zero as the wind dies.

Wind power driving a wind-battery system would need installed wind capacity of triple the expected demand, but even that may not cope with a long windless spell. There can be days with zero production from either wind or solar, and neither can increase output to meet demand which often peaks around dinner time and breakfast time when green power is scarce. Wind “farms” are a blight on the landscape and are often built in scenic areas where farming and forestry are prohibited. Read the rest of this entry

Will Morrison claw back the $444 million Turnbull handed to the Reef Foundation

by Brent Melville

AUSTRALIA’S new Prime Minister Scott Morrison is an evangelical Christian. The deputy prime minister Josh Frydenberg is Jewish by religion.

It is not difficult to put the case that their values clearly do not synchronize with the environmentalist ideology being pushed on Australians under the so-called 2030 Sustainable Development Goals i.e. Agenda 20-30, which is subscribed to by Australia’s Department of Foreign Affairs and Trade, state governments and councils.

Will Scott Morrison claw back the $444m Turnbull handed to the GBRF of which his wife is patron?

Running parallel to this is the cultural Marxism as recognised in programs such as “Safe Schools” and the “diversity” agenda being pushed by governments, corporations and big sporting codes.
The so-called sustainable development goals in many ways are actually anti-economic development. They supposedly justify the creation of elitist qangos like the Great Barrier Reef Foundation (GBRF) to guide the unwashed masses into the supposed green, diverse global utopia.
The GBRF, with its six employees, was recently given an outrageous handout of $487.6 million by ex-PM Turnbull through then Environment Minister Frydenberg. Of course it’s not all for the employees, but to be dished out to any number of projects that supposedly do something to “save the reef from destruction”.
The sham is that some scientists who have long observed and studied the reef say it is not in danger of dying at all.

The handout would have to rate as one of, if not the biggest environmental rort in Australian history – close to the $460m spooned out to the horrifically crooked Clinton Foundation and associated entities by both Labor and Coalition governments.

The question is, can Morrison and Frydenberg, the Christian-Jewish duo, do something to break the oppressive grip of green-tinged cultural Marxism over Australia?
Both should readily understand the disconnect between their respective beliefs and the philosophy behind Agenda 20-30.
The Old Testament story common to both Judaism and Christianity tells of the earth and mankind being created by a supernatural God of infinite wisdom and love, who put mankind in charge of the planet with instructions (Genesis 1:28) to “Be fruitful, and multiply, and replenish (or fill) the earth, and subdue it: and have dominion over the fish of the sea, and over the fowl of the air, and over every living thing that moveth upon the earth”. The Commonwealth of Australian, through the English law tradition, has been and hopefully still is guided by Christianity and the “Almighty God” referred to in the Preamble to the Constitution.

This tradition recognises The Lord’s Prayer as a spiritual principle for the good government of the nation, hence it being a voluntary part of the parliamentary procedure – even if large numbers of MPs these days reject it.

But environmentalists mostly do not accept the existence of a God who is ultimately in control of the planet. If they are open to any spirituality at all, it’s the idea of a pagan spiritual entity called Gaia, the Mother Earth goddess of Greek mythology.

But there are also many atheistic or agnostic environmentalists who claim to be solely led by “science”, which for them has no place for spiritual entities, faith or a Creator. Their explanation for the existence of all things is the shaky theory of evolution, which is supposedly proven by science.
For those unconvinced either way on this matter, look up a lecture on YouTube by the late Chuck Missler, a former industrial engineer, who explains how Darwin’s “simple cell” theory, taught in high school classes as the basis of evolution, has now been totally disproven by modern science.

Science, rather than pointing to random, chance mutations as being the answer to life as we know it, now points to intelligent design in nature.

Where, we might ask, did this design, this highly ordered and complex information come from?

Those of faith might also ask, did the God of creation miscalculate the ability of the planet to sustain an ever-growing population or the ability of those “made in His likeness” to find technology in order to inhabit the vast, unpopulated regions and oceans of the earth and eventually, other planets.

Environmentalism, by contrast, says the human species as an imposition upon “nature” or “Gaia”.

Humans, they maintain, are causing nature to fail and Gaia to spin out of control in apocalyptic climate change, therefore humans must reduce their numbers and radically cut their economic activity.
Ideally, according to this global green ideology, we should be living in cubicles in high-rises covered in vines with little or no electricity, apart from that which solar panels or windmills can dribble in.
It’s a miserable outlook for humanity, otherwise known as cultural pessimism.

Whether a Christian and Jew in charge of Australia’s governing Coalition party, can throw off this dark cloud over the nation, has yet to be seen.

Hello Rupert, bye-bye Malcolm

Source: The New Daily – by Bruce Guthrie

News Corporation CEO Rupert Murdoch (AP Photo/Josh Reynolds)

Anyone who doubts Rupert Murdoch’s role in the political chaos that has played out in recent days has never worked for him at a senior level.

Murdoch’s annual visits to Australia invariably trigger seismic events both in and outside News Corp, the company he’s presided over for decades.

So is it any surprise that Malcolm Turnbull has lost his job less than a fortnight after Murdoch arrived here? Of course it isn’t.

Murdoch flew in on August 10 and set about doing what he always does: he attended the annual News Awards, which fete the company’s best and brightest journalists, conducted one-on-ones with his editors and then signed off on the inevitable promotions, demotions and executions of the company’s most senior staff.

(I once endured all three on one of his visits – surviving a relatively benign one-on-one with Murdoch, accepting a News Award and then getting sacked, all in a matter of days.)

For good measure Murdoch also attended the 75th birthday of the Institute of Public Affairs on Monday night and was interviewed on stage with former Liberal PM, John Howard, by one of the media tycoon’s preferred columnists, Janet Albrechtsen.

Throughout all this he would have been forming a view that Turnbull’s time was up – in fact, he probably arrived with that view – and then imparted that message to his editors.

He wouldn’t have had to tell his columnists or his TV commentators because they arrived at that view months ago and have been preaching it ad nauseum. Foremost here have been Andrew Bolt, Miranda Devine and Peta Credlin.

They have been aided by an army of Sydney shock jocks, notably Alan Jones, Ray Hadley and Paul Murray.

In the end it took just 11 days after Murdoch’s arrival to bring about a party room spill. It played out less than 24 hours after that IPA appearance.

While much of Tuesday’s party room drama was driven by Tony Abbott and his ultra-conservative cohorts, there were plenty of willing executioners within News Corp, its various arms and Sydney’s blowhard broadcasters.

Turnbull alluded to these internal and external agents of regime change at his extraordinary press conference on Thursday afternoon in Canberra.

“A minority in the party room, supported by others outside the parliament, have sought to bully, intimidate others into making this change of leadership,” he said.

He avoided specifics, but it was clear who he was referring to.

Channel Nine political editor Chris Uhlmann had made the same point on Thursday morning, telling Today viewers hours before the Turnbull press conference that “everyone from the PM down has pointed out to me that they believe there has been a campaign waged against them”.

Uhlmann went on: “We are talking about The Australian, The Daily Telegraph, tabloid newspapers around the country, 2GB in Sydney led by Alan Jones and Ray Hadley, and Sky News in particular with its evening line-up, are waging a war against the prime minister of Australia.”

He’s right, of course.

Predictably, the News Corp backlash was swift, with various operatives condemning Uhlmann’s comments as “disgusting” and “outrageous”. They should get out more often.

Journalists traditionally tread a fine line in leadership contests, forced to sift through leaks, whispers and background conversations when reporting a fast-moving story. On this occasion though, too many appeared to cross it. And most of those work for News Corp or its entities.

Their willingness to insert themselves into the story was a long, long way from traditional journalism’s demands of objectivity, fairness, balance and a genuine search for truth. I fear it won’t be a one-off either.

The front pages of the company’s tabloids were also firmly against Turnbull, the Herald Sun branding him “Dead Mal Walking” and the Courier-Mail welcoming candidate Dutton with “The Pete Is On”.

The choir was pretty clearly singing from the same song sheet. This is not entirely unexpected. As many have observed on this and other continents, Rupert has form in this regard.

Time and again it’s been shown that he likes to meddle in the politics of the countries his outlets operate in. Just last month The Washington Post reported that he talks with US President Donald Trump every day.

This week’s events and Murdoch’s role in them were another reminder that recent law changes have created media monsters that even prime ministers have reason to fear.

Turnbull has now paid with his job because on some level he failed Murdoch and his minions. The simplest explanation is he was perceived as just too liberal.

The real beneficiary of all this is Bill Shorten. But he shouldn’t dwell on his good fortune for too long.

That’s because the treatment of Turnbull by News Corp inevitably throws up this question: If Murdoch and Co will go to such lengths to oust a Liberal leader, what will they do to keep Labor from power?

Anning calls for urgent referendum on immigration

United Nations sycophants of ALP, Greens and LNP decry Senator Anning’s remarkable maiden speech which is reproduced in full at the bottom of the page

The dominant left wing of national broadcaster, the ABC is frothing at both ends over Senator Fraser Anning’s maiden speech.

Cairns News has perused the speech and discovered it is not nearly as volatile as Pauline Hanson’s in the maiden speech stakes.

Brainless shock jock Senator Derryn Hinch, naturally a Victorian and ALP atheist Penny Wong  have joined the choirmaster ABC along with the Jew, Josh Frydenberg, unremarkably spluttering the views of the Liberal Left.

KAP Senator Fraser Anning takes on the UN sycophants of the ALP and LNP

It is a terrible blight on the jaundiced, national Marxist education system, that a supposed government Minister is unable to rely on normal comprehension to understand the meaning of Senator Anning’s quite acceptable speech.

Readers can decide for themselves but the new senator leaves us in no doubt a national referendum on immigration should happen quite soon.

Below is a statement from Senator Anning:

Senator Anning has dismissed criticism of his use of the words “final solution” in regards to immigration as an effort by the left to shut down debate.

“Claims that the words meant anything other than the “ultimate solution” to any political question is always a popular vote are simply ridiculous.”

“Anyone who actually reads them in context will realise this.”

“Some in the media and left wing politicians are simply afraid of the Australian people having a say on who comes here.”

“As I called for a plebiscite on the immigration mix, this baseless and ridiculous criticism is simply an effort to play the man and not the ball.”

“It is ironic that those on the left such as the Greens and some Labor who seek to criticise me are the same people who refused to support my efforts to stop Australia funding the Palestinian Authority which finance terrorist attacks against innocent Israeli women and children.”

Minister approves $400m grant to 6 people without any consultation

Drought effected farmers living on 3 minute noodles watching their livestock die of starvation have been subjected to more Turn-bullshit as the government hand over $400M to 6 people to support the greens academic army totally reliant on government grants to exist.

An engineered world wide Greenie fictional fear mongering campaign that the barrier reef is in need of major repair requiring $millions has worked. On the factual side, never considered as relevant, is decades of experience from people working and looking after the reef have exposed this cashing up scam to feed the green machine.

The pittance Turn-bullshit has allocated to desperate drought affected farmers of $15,000 assistance upon completing a plethora of bureaucratic paperwork, will not be completed available until March 2019 long after farmers are destitute and their livestock are dead. Available now is the $400 million feeding the greens camp phd’s and cohort bludgers from the unaccountable public purse.

How much long is it going to take for voters to wake up and remove the duopoly establishment problem from power before the new owners move in.

Turnbull’s $444 million barrier reef fraud exposed

Channel Nine’s Karl Stefanovic in cash-for-comment scandal defending Malcom Turnbull’s $444 million fraud

by Shane Dowlingwww.kangaroocourtsaustralia.com

Prime Minister Malcolm Turnbull is in the fight of his life trying to justify his fraudulent awarding of a $444 million grant to the Liberal Party aligned and mining industry backed Great Barrier Reef Foundation. Nine’s Karl Stefanovic has come to Turnbull’s defence on Twitter defending the deal while knowingly concealing that the Great Barrier Reef Foundation is a sponsor of Channel 9.

The problem is that the deal it totally indefensible as all protocols were broken which makes Karl Stefanovic’s cash-for-comment routine blatantly obvious. It also raises issues with Nine’s planned merger with Fairfax Media which I will deal with later but firstly some of the background and Stefanovic’s grubby cash-for-comment Tweet.

Ruthless bank receivers Ferrier Hodgson dodge a silver bullet – for now

from ABC

The behaviour of receivers will not be investigated by the banking royal commission, despite a witness accusing them of causing a “massive destruction of value” for farm businesses.

In the opening address of the round four hearings, counsel assisting Rowena Orr announced the commission would not asses the role of receivers in farm foreclosures because it was not in the terms of reference.

“The conduct of receivers does not fall within the terms of reference of this royal commission because receivers do not fall within any of the categories within the definition of a financial services entity,” she said.

“A receiver cannot be considered to be a person or entity that acts or holds itself out as acting as an intermediary between borrowers and lenders.”

Seven carloads of armed enforcers and two carloads of Rabobank’s dodgy receivers, Ferrier Hodgson, arrive at the Bradshaw cattle property at Pentland in 2016 to drag off Neil Bradshaw, 29, in handcuffs. The show of force was endemic in dozens of rural foreclosures in Queensland.

Farmers in attendance, many of whom had travelled from interstate, were visibly upset with the announcement.

Farmers in the audience applauded witness Chris Wheatcroft, from Rural Financial Counsellors WA, who appealed to the commissioner to reconsider.

Mr Wheatcroft accused receivers of wasting farmers’ money when they took over a property and managed it until a buyer could be found.

“It is a massive destruction of value and that sits deeply with people,” he said.

“I wonder if the commission could look at [the reasons] why receivers are put in, as opposed to the practice of receivership.

“There is nowhere to go once receivers are in, and in terms of values, farmers will see their hard-earned money-farm-asset disappear under a receiver like you’ve never seen,” he said.

“They would perceive the money as absolutely wasted and I would be hard pressed — with my background from farming or business management — to say that is not correct”.

Merchant banker PM Malcolm Turnbull ensured the Claytons Royal Commission into Banking would not cross-examine ruthless bank receivers whose actions cost agriculture a loss of tens of millions of dollars. Seven carloads of enforcers swoop on the Bradshaw property to evict an elderly Mrs Bradshaw and her son. Dispossessed farmers have advised sooner or later rogue receivers will get their just desserts.

Mr Wheatcroft also said the receivership process was not good for anyone involved — farmers or banks.

“The act of putting in a receiver never benefits the client, I categorically say that,” he said.

“I actually think in most cases it doesn’t benefit the bank [either].”

Dennis McMahon from Legal Aid Queensland, who also gave evidence at the royal commission, said farmers were often too stressed to engage with receivers, and might not be aware of the trouble they were in.

“Some of those people may have been through years and years of drought or had to destroy all their livestock, so they may not have any income for the foreseeable future,” he said.

“I’ve been to properties where there is three months’ worth of mailing sitting in the corner and they [farmers] are unable to open it.

“The bank manager complains that person isn’t responding to their requests for information, but those people are sick, they are suffering from depression.

“They need a lot of assistance and time to work through their problems, and don’t know who to go to.”

Ms Orr said the Commonwealth Bank told the commission it took enforcement action against 82 agriculture customers in the past decade, while ANZ said it took enforcement action on 30 farm businesses in the last four years.

Calls for receivership reform

New South Wales National Party senator John Williams, who agitated for a royal commission into the banks, said he was disappointed the behaviour of receivers would not be probed.

However, he said hoped banks were now reconsidering their reliance on insolvency practitioners in future, arguing the process was too stressful for family-run farms.

“I’m disappointed, but it’s not for me to direct the royal commission,” he said.

“The Government set the terms of refence, but that doesn’t stop us in Government working with banks to get things changed.

“I’ve said to banks and the Australian Bankers Association, ‘please do not send receivers into family farms’. It’s all good to send them into corporate farms because the management is retained.

“So even if the royal commission isn’t looking into it, I hope banks don’t send receivers into family farms.”

In 2017, the Select Committee on Primary Production Lending recommended the Australian Bankers Association revise the Code of Banking Practice to stipulate that if farmers and banks cannot come to an agreement and foreclosure is inevitable, receivers should not be appointed.

The committee also recommended the farmer and his or her family be allowed to stay on the property and manage it, while being paid the minimum wage, until it is sold.

It also recommended insolvency practitioners be more transparent by providing an estimate of receivership costs in advance, and monthly reports to the lender and the borrower afterwards.

“A key problem we found [in that inquiry] was with receivers when they ran the farm — the cost of running them [was high], we had evidence of farms for what I considered to be sold for far below their value,” Senator Williams said.

“I’ve seen some situations where sometimes it’s not done well and it’s an utter disgrace how receivers manage the livestock and the property.

“Farmers need to be treated with respect and dignity, and sending in receivers is too hard and there’s a huge cost they charge, which means less money for the banks anyway, so it’s better for banks to work with farmers on an exit plan.”

Senator Williams said he hoped the royal commission’s failure to probe receivers would lead to a renewed push for a national farm debt mediation scheme, where banks would be forced to offer mediation to farmers before foreclosing on them.

Currently only New South Wales, Victoria and Queensland have legislated farm debt mediation schemes in place, while South Australia has a voluntary one.

Ms Orr said “several” financial service entities had told the royal commission “they would support a uniform farm debt mediation act”.

Receivers Korda Mentha

In one case at Charters Towers in 2015 receivers Korda Mentha allowed at least 500 head of cattle to perish because the owners were not allowed to shift the cattle to agistment and the receivers had provided no money to feed them.

In this case Mr Bradshaw said Rabobank demanded the Bradshaw family pay the entire debt “straight away.”

“They are trying to get their hands on Ballabay Station(Pentland) too, so my parents have worked for a lifetime for nothing,” he said.

The then Member for Dalrymple Shane Knuth of Katters Australia Party has been following the case and is critical of the legal system that allows such travesties to occur.

“These people have committed no crime and contributed so much to their community over many years,” Mr Knuth said.

“They have been heavily involved in Landcare and supporting the beef industry. It is not their fault they copped five years of drought and a government enforced live cattle export ban.

“It will take them up to five years to recover from this drought.

“This episode demonstrates a clear demand for a Royal Commission into banking.”

Prophetic words from Mr Knuth in 2016.

Wilkie warns of totalitarian whistleblower bill supported by Liberal and Labor

In 2003 I resigned from my job as a Senior Intelligence Analyst to blow the whistle on the fraudulent claims the Howard Government was using to justify taking us to war in Iraq.

I’ve never doubted for one moment that what I did served the interests of my country and its people. Fast forward 15 years and I’m an Independent Federal MP representing the Tasmanian electorate of Denison.

Our Parliament is on the verge of passing draconian legislation that undermines government transparency, our civil liberties and freedom of the press.

Had this legislation (the Espionage and Foreign Interference Bill) been in place in 2003 when I alerted the Australian people to our government’s Iraq War deceit, I’d have faced 25 years in prison. 

click this link

Can you watch and share this video to make sure this anti-democratic attack doesn’t fly under the radar?

I’m deeply concerned about the chilling impact this legislation will have on political debate in our country. Whistleblowers and journalists help us hold power to account, and when those voices are silenced our democracy suffers. 

And it’s not just whistleblowers and journalists who need to be worried about this legislation. Ordinary people participating in peaceful protest also risk being charged with serious offences. For example, if you or one of your loved ones blockaded the Adani coal mine, the Attorney General could choose to charge you with sabotage – which carries a maximum sentence of 20 years in prison. 

I don’t know about you, but I don’t think any single politician should have that sort of power.

Given the current state of global politics, it’s disturbingly easy to imagine the Australian Government might try to follow the US into Donald Trump’s first war. If that were to eventuate, do you want us to be a society that has criminalised whistleblowing?

The Turnbull Government looks set to pass this legislation next week, with the support of the Labor Party. Time is running out for us to make sure the Australian public know what is happening to our democracy.

Yours Sincerely,

Andrew Wilkie MP

Jewish citizenship entitlement could disqualify these federal MP’s

Letter to the Editor

In 1950, Israel’s Knesset passed a remarkable law, beginning with a few simple words that defined Israel’s central purpose: “Every Jew has the right to immigrate to this country…”
.
With the inception of the State of Israel, two thousand years of wandering were officially over. Since then, Jews have been entitled to simply show up and request to be Israeli citizens, assuming they posed no imminent danger to public health, state security, or the Jewish people as a whole. Essentially, all Jews everywhere are Israeli citizens by right.
.
In 1955, the law was amended slightly to specify that dangerous criminals could also be denied that right.

The Israeli Knesset(Parliament) allows any Jew an entitlement to citizenship

.

In 1970, Israel took another historic step by granting automatic citizenship not only to Jews, but also to their non-Jewish children, grandchildren, and spouses, and to the non-Jewish spouses of their children and grandchildren. This addition not only ensured that families would not be broken apart, but also promised a safe haven in Israel for non-Jews subject to persecution because of their Jewish roots.

…………….“While Israelis may hold dual citizenship, a Basic Law passed in 1958 states that Knesset members cannot pledge allegiance as parliamentarians unless their foreign citizenship has been revoked under the laws of that country,” the article states.
.
Another Israeli politician, who was elected at the same time as Svetlova is Rachel Azaria, who was also forced to renounce her foreign citizenship–in the US! Again from the Times of Israel:
.
Azaria, a 38-year-old Jerusalem deputy mayor, renounced her American citizenship, which she had held by virtue of her mother having been born in the US.
.
It is astounding, is it not? Israel gets billions of dollars per year courtesy of US taxpayers–but anyone holding US citizenship is barred from serving in the Knesset! But we are not allowed to have a similar law here in the US banning Israeli citizens from serving in Congress!
.
And not only do we not have a similar in the US, but apparently Freedom of Information Act requests aimed at finding out which Congress members do in fact hold dual citizenship–are denied. The following is a 2015 article that was published at Counterpunch.
