Martial law has begun in Queensland under the pretext of keeping a moderately dangerous flu virus out of Aboriginal communities. The huge land mass of Cape York Peninsula has been closed off to visitors.
Police roadblocks are in place at Mt Carbine at the southern entrance to Cape York, another west of Chillagoe to keep vehicles from heading to Kowanyama aboriginal community at the bottom of Cape York and another at Lakeland to keep vehicles from entering Cooktown and Hopevale Aboriginal community.
Airline Skytrans, which is owned by football legend Jonathon Thurston and NSW-based Rex Airlines which service Cape York and Torres Strait have all but closed down.
No aircraft are flying into the Northern Peninsula Area and with the road access closed by floodwater at the Wenlock River the NPA communities are effectively closed to the world. Goods are being shipped in by state government-owned Sea Swift barges from Cairns.
The economic loss to all businesses and Aboriginal communities on Cape York from the absence of tourists right at the start of the tourist season will be astronomical. At its Weipa mine Rio Tinto last week shut down production and stood down employees for an indefinite period due to a lack of ships to transport quarry material, eg. bauxite, to China and other countries.
Few domestic planes are flying into Cairns and international flights have ceased. Cairns has lost 100 per cent of its tourist industry and the economic loss will oversee mass bankruptcies across the region. No amount of government subsidies and handouts will enable the majority of these small businesses to survive.
In 12 months time a recovered China will step into Cairns and en masse swoop on every stricken or shut down business and end up owning the lot. Not a wimper will be heard from the China sycophants of the ALP/LNP duopoly.
What are dumbed-down Australians going to do about it? Vote for tweedle dee instead of tweedle dumb?
There may be no state or federal elections for several years.
This is what happens after a generation of treacherous party politicians has sold out Australian manufacturing and real estate to China and Asia.
Will these politicians be caught up in Trump’s snare?
The Queensland Government has allowed crocodile numbers to reach endemic proportions killing people and virtually closing tourist traffic to some northern areas of the state. The looney Green agenda driven by Deputy Premier Jackie Trad and Environment Minister Stephen Miles forced them so far out of their depth a croc will get ’em. Click on the video below:
Media organisations and newspapers are cowering under threat of prosecution by the Anti-discrimination Commission should they identify the ethnic origin of criminals when reporting their misdeeds. So much for the abortive attempt to rehabilitate Section 18c.
It matters not to the racist zealots of the loathed Anti-discrimination Commission that young Aborigines are by far the main perpetrators of rampant, serious assaults and other crime in the Cairns area.
Some white criminals exist but tourists bearing the brunt of robbery, assault and battery are taking home stories that a visit to Cairns is just not worth it.
If you go out at night, or now it seems even in broad daylight you are likely to be assaulted.
Worse still the average age and gender of assailants has shocked hardened policemen on the beat.
In the past week a 37 year old Japanese tourist was approached by three youths and asked for cigarettes but when he refused he was bashed with a tree branch. The juveniles then tried to steal his back pack without success. Paramedics arrived to find the man suffering “serious bleeding.”
Three of the four 13 year old muggers, some or all of indigenous appearance, have been caught and since charged but will be dealt with under the juvenile justice act. Police are still looking for the fourth offender.
Unravelling this media-speak means they will be given a stern lecture perhaps by a Magistrate and released into the custody of their parents or carers, who should have made them stay home and taught them how to respect others in the first place, instead of wandering the streets in the early hours of the morning.
Meanwhile a tourist remains seriously injured and is no doubt harbouring vicious intent against the hundreds of wandering, Aboriginal and white kids in street gangs who push pedestrians off the footpath because the Aborigines proclaim ‘white bastards’ are trespassing on their land.
In a separate and unrelated incident, a 19 year old female was taken to hospital after she was allegedly attacked by three youths during an attempted robbery in the Cairns CBD.
The trio demanded her phone but was punched and kicked unconscious when she refused to hand it over.
A Manoora boy and Bentley Park girl, both aged 12, and a 16 year old girl from Mooroobool, have been charged by police.
Police are frustrated by the Magistrates Court being unable to address the youthful crime wave across the region. The ALP can take responsibility for diluting existing laws and for failing to introduce harsher penalties to curb escalating youth crime.
At least 80 motor vehicles a month are being stolen throughout the Cairns and Tablelands district and police are discovering to their horror that some thieves who led them on car chases have been as young as 12.
In years gone by, courts would give young troublemakers two options in sentencing. One was to attend a state detention facility that provided much better facilities and tucker than that at home, or to undertake a period of attendance at the renowned Petford Farm rehabilitation centre, run by indigenous couple, Geoff and Norma Guest since the late 1970’s.
Located on a remote cattle and horse property 30 klms west of Dimbulah, the facility can claim outstanding success with more than 3000 attendees over a 30 year period.
Health authorities have boasted a 70 per cent non-recidivism success rate with Aboriginal and white youth after completing the Guest courses. Many adults also passed through the drug and alcohol rehabilitation program developed by Geoff Guest OAM. His wife Norma passed away last year after a long illness.
The Petford Wellness group in more recent times, rather than taking troubled boarders, has been developing a rehabilitation curriculum for implementation into Aboriginal communities, with the notion of prevention rather than cure.
Mr Guest wants to train trainers so they can instruct intending mothers, mothers and children about proper nutrition, removal of sugar from diets and food preparation methods. He believes in the adage, ‘we are what we eat.’
Now aged 90, the intrepid Geoff Guest still breaks in horses, which have played an integral part of his outstanding rehabilitation process.
The Queensland Labor Party recently ruled against the state’s youth boot camp apparatus, in effect the Guest legacy, claiming it was too hard on participants and ineffectual.
The crime wave apologists of the socialist Labor and Greens will continue to flay Far Northern tourism with their unauthorised United Nations Human Rights obligations, causing visitors to condemn destinations such as Cairns, being dangerous and a hazard to their itineraries. – contributed
The freemarketeers have been “Trumped” according to Bob in his latest video where he addresses the American people’s decision to elect Donald Trump as their next President. Bob is hopeful that this election, along with Brexit, will help Australians secure their own “great victory” against those who are not interested in our well-being or the well-being of the country at large.

Harsh vegetation management laws to be enacted by the State Government have united political identities across the spectrum. Protesters marched on the Gordonvale electorate office of State Treasurer Curtis Pitt on Saturday. Speakers at the rowdy rally of 80 farmers, politicians, indigenous representatives and political aspirants, warned the proposed laws would “shut down” agriculture and make criminals out of farmers if they clear regrowth or vegetation on their farms
Atherton solicitor Anne English on the doorstep of Curtis Pitt’s office told the rally the new laws turned farmers into criminals by reversing the onus of proof and removing the centuries-old ‘mistaken belief’ principle as a defence if trees are cleared.

Warren caught out again telling porkies, first in Weipa and now Cairns. No deal with ALP or Greens
The battle lines have been drawn in the Far North between incumbent Federal Liberal Member for Leichardt Warren Entsch and KAP senate candidate Joy Marriott after Mr Entsch allegedly abused Ms Marriott at a landowners forum at the weekend.
Monday saw a round of media conferences in Cairns with Joy Marriott and fellow candidate for Leichardt, Brad Tassell condemning Mr Entsch for telling Ms Marriott to “F**K off” in front of witnesses at the Lakeland forum.
Pouring fuel onto the fire he started, Mr Entsch dug himself deeper and deeper into the hole by denying he swore and refusing to apologise to Ms Marriott.
Claiming KAP had done a preference deal with the ALP and Greens was absurd and easily confirmed they had not, both candidates said.
Brandishing how to vote cards at the television interviews, Mr Tassell and Ms Marriott clearly explained that no deal had been done with the Greens or Labor and in fact both parties were placed last and second last on KAP tickets.
Ms Marriott said she felt intimidated and disgusted about Mr Entsch’s behaviour which was inappropriate at a public meeting.
“Warren Entsch has lost the plot, and I think he has been affected by two serious accidents he had recently when he was hospitalised for head injuries,” Ms Marriott said.
Compounding Mr Entsch’s aggressiveness and anger was the tight exchange of preferences between independent Dan McCarthy and KAP’s Brad Tassell that will in effect, according to KAP sources, prevent Mr Entsch from being re-elected.
“Mr Entsch seriously mishandled the truth again on ABC radio on Monday by claiming KAP was doing an exchange of preferences with the ALP and Greens,” Mr Tassell said.
Having a more circumspect outlook than Mr Entsch, Brad Tassell said he was prepared for either himself or Mr McCarthy to win the seat, “as long as we get rid of the major parties,” he added.
A Cairns News special presentation
Parry must break silence on post-massacre report
A senator has refused to comment about allegations he had prior knowledge of the Port Arthur massacre in 1996 when 35 innocent people were killed in a precision shooting operation.
Another 23 men, women and children were wounded by a trained and methodical gunman with long blond hair.
Revelations by Austrian-based author and researcher, Keith Noble, that Senator Stephen Parry had prior knowledge of the shootings, have not been refuted.
Parry at the time was a qualified embalmer and a former member of Tasmania Police who led a team of embalmers which handled the bodies in 1996.
An Australian, Mr Noble is leading a campaign to free accused shooter Martin Bryant from Risdon Gaol in Tasmania.
A paper written and presented in 1997 by Stephen Parry entitled ‘Port Arthur Massacre – AFDA National Embalming Team – Detailed Report’, that appears in a little-known book entitled ‘PORT ARTHUR SEMINAR PAPERS: A record of the Port Arthur Seminar’, 11-12 March, 1997, Melbourne, Victoria (ISBN 0642271364) clearly shows the incident that rocked a nation was planned.
In his 16 page, disturbing 1997 paper, Senator Parry stated in the following passage :
“I was particularly impressed by the quick response and initiatives by some of the team members in packaging and collecting equipment.
The response time and the amount of equipment quickly relocated was fantastic. One firm in particular, Nelson Brothers, had organised for an embalming machine box and a special large equipment case to be manufactured ready for the incident. These two containers were the envy of all embalmers and worked extremely well.
I would suggest that design specifications may be available from this firm for any future considerations by other firms.” (highlighted by CN)
Parry reveals the funeral services company of Nelson Brothers in Melbourne, Victoria, had undertaken preparations prior to the shooting.
According to Wikipedia:
“Parry was born on 31 October 1960 in Burnie, Tasmania, to William Stephen Parry and Patricia Dawn Evans. He was educated at Burnie’s Marist Regional College after which he enrolled at the Tasmanian Police Academy in Hobart.
Parry was employed as an officer with the Tasmanian Police from 1977 to 1986, and was promoted to Detective in 1983. After leaving the police force, he completed a certificate in Mortuary Science at the Australian College of Funeral Service, and was a funeral director from 1986 to 2004, becoming president of the Australian Funeral Directors Association. Parry was also president of the Burnie Chamber of Commerce and Industry from 2000 to 2004, and a director of the Tasmanian Chamber of Commerce and Industry from 2000 to 2005.”
In 2004, Parry was elected to the Australian Senate for the State of Tasmania as a member of the Liberal Party.
Senator Parry was eminently qualified to lead the embalming team and as such his published comments would have to be accurate.
On February 26 he was emailed a ‘Show Cause’ notice by Keith Noble who accused the Senate Leader of having prior knowledge of the tragedy.
As of going to print Mr Noble says he has had no acknowledgement or reply from senator Parry.
Cairns News emailed senator Parry’s office with a copy of the notice but he had not responded at the time of going to print.
In furthering his moves to get Bryant out of gaol, Mr Noble told Cairns News there is an abundance of available evidence that the Tasmania Police refuse to acknowledge, clearly indicating Bryant is innocent.
“There was no trial, no coronial inquest, no public enquiry, no royal commission,” Mr Noble said.
“The story pushed by authorities that a trial would have been upsetting is the way the State has kept its crimes concealed from the public.
“John Howard was the worst Prime Minister Australia has ever had, and he encouraged the Liberal Party in Tasmania not to give innocent Martin a trial.
“Howard, who is also a qualified lawyer, spoke out to have Martin denied his legal rights and he never had proper legal representation and was kept in isolation for over six months.
“His lawyer at the time John Avery, who was convicted in 2008 for misappropriating and stealing $512,000, forced Martin to change his not guilty plea.
“He is another person who played the game after the official incident at Port Arthur. This is the depth to which the legal system in Tasmania has been taken over by corrupt lawyers, which includes that other pair of mongrels who wrongly prosecuted and convicted innocent Martin, Damian Bugg and William Cox.”
Mr Noble said the incident at Port Arthur was a premeditated, planned, and professionally perpetrated act of psycho-terror undertaken by the State to coerce the public into accepting firearm legislation.
“Martin Bryant is the patsy,” he said.
Major parties panic, change voting rules as intelligent electors join forces with disenchanted voters
People and the party faithful now are awakening they are being controlled by the major parties who are feeling this serious trend.
With battle lines being drawn in the Senate the major parties are experiencing their power base being dismantled by independent senators out of their control that has forced desperate action for survival at the coming election. Again they shift the goal posts by changing the rules to allow themselves preferential treatment on the senate ballot paper.
Liberal and Labor become allies when their decades of government dictatorship become threatened by the people.
The cross benchers represent people in parliament not party rooms engaging the agendas of big business.
Attracting detrimental comments from the threatened party room machines who control the stream of intimidating press releases from their spin doctors and fiction story tellers, the cross bench threat to the parties needs to be removed.
“If you play by their rules, you lose”
“Your rules apply on polling day, and they lose”
Make the most of it.

Kremlin Press Release – February 22, 2016 21:50
The President made a special address following the adoption of a joint statement by the Russian Federation and the United States of America, as co-chairs of the International Syria Support Group (ISSG), on the cessation of hostilities in Syria.
I just had a telephone conversation with President of the United States of America Barack Obama. The phone call was initiated by the Russian side, but the interest was certainly mutual.
During our conversation, we approved joint statements of Russia and the US, as co-chairs of the ISSG, on the cessation of hostilities in Syria. Adoption of the statement was preceded by intensive work by Russian and American experts. We also made use of the positive experience we accumulated over the course of cooperation in eliminating chemical weapons in Syria.
Our negotiators held several rounds of closed consultations. As a result, we were able to reach an important, specific result. It was agreed that the cessation of hostilities in Syria commences at 00:00 (Damascus time) on February 27, 2016 on terms and conditions that are a part of the Russian-American statement.
The essence of these conditions is as follows: by 12:00 pm on February 26, 2016, all parties warring in Syria must indicate to the Russian Federation or our American partners their commitment to the cessation of hostilities. Russian and American troops will jointly delineate the territories where these groups are active. No military action will be taken against them by the Armed Forces of the Syrian Arab Republic, Russian Armed Forces and the US-led coalition. In turn, the opposition will cease all military action against the Armed Forces of the Syrian Arab Republic and other groups supporting them.
ISIS, Jabhat Al-Nursa, and other terrorist organisations designated by the United Nations Security Council, are excluded from the cessation of hostilities. Strikes against them will continue.
It is fundamentally important that Russia and the US, as co-chairs of the ISSG, are prepared to launch effective mechanisms to promote and monitor compliance with the ceasefire by both the Syrian Government and the armed opposition groups.
To achieve this goal, we will establish a communication hotline and, if necessary, a working group to exchange relevant information. Russia will conduct the necessary work with Damascus and the legitimate Syrian leadership. We expect that the United States will do the same with regard to their allies and the groups they support.
I am sure that the joint actions agreed upon with the American side will be enough to radically reverse the crisis situation in Syria. We are finally seeing a real chance to bring an end to the long-standing bloodshed and violence. As a result, humanitarian access to all Syrian citizens in need should be made easier.
Most important is the creation of conditions for launching a long-term political process through a broad inter-Syrian dialogue in Geneva, under the auspices of the UN.
Unfortunately, recent history has many examples where one-sided actions not sanctioned by the UN, which favour short-term political or opportunistic interests, have led to dramatic results. These examples are on everyone’s lips: Somalia, Iraq, Libya, Yemen.
Against this background, Russian-American agreements on the cessation of hostilities in Syria, and their joint implementation in coordination with all nations participating in the International Syria Support Group, can become an example of responsible actions the global community takes against the threat of terrorism, which are based on international law and UN principles.
I would like to hope that the Syrian leadership and all our partners in the region and beyond will support the set of actions chosen by representatives of Russia and the US.
1. In 2008, General David Morrison had urged the federal government NOT to recognise the 2nd D&E Platoon because ‘amending archives was high risk’ and ‘could open the floodgates to others to might want to correct the official records.’In other words, this bastard preferred the official records to remain false and inaccurate- and to hell with military integrity and the service histories of the men involved in such units.
This also explains why the Australian War Memorial refuses to release the 235 documents it holds concerning the 2nd D&E Platoon despite its own (and the government’s FOI policies).
How can anyone support the deliberate falsification of war records?
2. And it’s interesting to note that before he retired, General Morrison wanted the Army website ‘revamped’ and paid Deloitte Australia $2,600,000 to do it- and now, Deloitte is paying him $200,000 to advise it on because he is an ‘amazing role model and advocate for diversity and inclusion, gender equality and fairness.’
What a load of want!

How many Australians outside of Sydney saw this Channel 10 news segment?
Hundreds of fanatical Islamics rioted in Sydney on September 9, 2015, claiming they were objecting to the release of an anti-Muslim film. Police were caught off guard and a number were seriously injured while trying to contain the mob surging through the CBD. Police were forced to shut down Market Street sending the rioters back to Hyde Park to regroup. There police dogs and capsicum spray were used to break up the crazed Muslims. The chanting, mindless mob took to police with missiles and boots hospitalising six officers.
The blame for these disgusting anti-Australian attacks on the majority of peaceful citizens by several hundred Muslim immigrants can be placed squarely on the shoulders of the Labor party, the Liberal Party and the equally crazed Greens.
North Queensland MP Bob Katter has called for an end to all immigration tying the annual 600,000 influx of immigrants to job availability. Until the nation can absorb existing immigrants and place them in meaningful jobs, Katter says from today no more, finished, don’t apply.
