Liberals & Labor terrified of Muslim voting power

United they rule – divided we fall. ALP and the Liberals ignore the majority of Australians opposed to Islamic immigration.

By Robert J Lee in Canberra

The Liberal and Labor parties are terrified by the extent of the Muslim vote in Australia, particularly in NSW and Victoria.

The Pickering Post last year reported the Muslim bloc vote across both states could affect the outcome of a federal election.

Up to 15 per cent of the primary vote in 15 seats is controlled by the Muslim community and Defence Minister Christopher Pyne’s recent reaction, denigrating Pauline Hanson for her comments about stopping immigration from Muslim countries reveal how scared the Liberals are of offending Islam.

Independent Member for the Far Northern seat of Kennedy, Bob Katter has a bill prepared to do just what Hanson is frightening the Liberals and Labor about.

Katter’s bill is modelled on US President Donald Trump’s controversial anti-Muslim immigration bill that would stop residents of identified Islamic countries from entering Australia.

It will be tabled in the House of Representatives in May.

The Vaucluse vacuum, Prime Minister Malcolm Turnbull fares no better. His continued public support for Islamic citizens in Australia, more so those in Liberal-held electorates, demonstrates the extent of his fear.

Turnbull wants to continue with the importation of 12,000 ‘refugees’ from Islamic countries, in spite of 500 so far having been rejected on security grounds.

The religion of these ‘refugees’ remains largely unknown, a little bit like the section of the Australian Census form asking for religious status.

The Liberal Party seems oblivious to 80 per cent of Australians rejecting the UN-orchestrated immigration plan, to further inject a large number of Muslim ‘refugees’ into a once homogenous society.

Like a broken record Turnbull, at every opportunity claims Australia is the most successful ‘multicultural country in the world.’

This is correct in part thanks to the ‘White Australia’ policy that ensured the majority of immigrants from the 1950’s to the late 70’s originated from European countries.

Turnbull’s claim has not been relevant since the early 1980’s coincidental with the corrupt regime of the infamous Labor Prime Minister Bob Hawke, whom Australia has to thank for the ethnic ghettos of Sydney and Melbourne accompanied by rampant gangland crime.

To expect Muslims or any other person to truthfully reveal their religious ideology is a pipe dream of the Bureau of Statistics. It is easy to mark in ‘Christian’ without fear of checks or balances.

Thus the number of real Muslims living in Australia is anybody’s guess although the ABS claims there are roughly 500,000.

Australian Muslim ‘how to vote card’

In 2014-15, of the total of 13,756 humanitarian migrants:

  • 2,335 were from Iraq
  • 2,232 were from Syria
  • 1,813 were from Afghanistan and
  • 331 were from Iran.

These four majority Muslim countries made up 48.8% of the humanitarian intake. (source Business Insider)

During the 2007-13 Rudd-Gillard-Rudd era of Prime Ministership an estimated 120,000, mainly Muslim refugee immigrants entered Australia by air. It is believed most of these immigrants remained in the country, in addition to the normal immigrant inflow.

Australia’s immigration policy does not discriminate on the grounds of ethnic origin or religion.

Perhaps we should ask the United Kingdom or France how many radical Muslims does it take to make a bomb or drive a car?

Australia Post CEO quits his $5.6m a year plum job-no more gifts to Muslim museum

Following KAP Member for Kennedy, Bob Katter’s Question in Parliament last week, Mr Katter is calling Australia Post CEO, Ahmed Fahour’s resignation today – “a win for the people”.

 Last week, Mr Katter asked the Minister for Communications about the $5.6m pay packet for the CEO:

 Mr Katter said, “We asked a very funny, but also very ‘bash them up’ question in the Parliament last week and even I was surprised that we’re climbing up towards 600,000 hits on our Facebook page on that Question https://www.facebook.com/bobkattermp/

 “Clearly the people of Australia are absolutely sickened by people paying themselves $6M a year.  I mean look around at 20 of your mates – in your whole lifetime the 20 of you will not receive $6M.

 “You would have to go back to the days where there were about 1,000 people owned the wealth of Australia in the wool industry to find the disparity in wealth that we have today and those people earned that wealth, today these people do not earn that wealth.

 “The suits that run around in your tapestry towers in Brisbane, Sydney and Melbourne and pay yourselves these absolutely sickingly unconscionable salary levels – then your day is coming to an end – you suits in your tapestry towers, your day and the day of your mouthpieces, the two major parties, is coming to an end.”

Australia Post CEO Ahmed Fahour decides to call it a day and will soon quit his $5.6m a year job, thanks to questions in Parliament from Bob Katter

Last week, Mr Katter’s Question raised Mr Fahour’s pay; the cost of postage doubling to $1 a letter; and the $2.8m pre-tax donation it is reported that Australia Post “mutually agreed” to give to the Islamic Museum of Australia, founded by Ahmed Fahour’s brother Moustafa Fahour, when in the same year 900 Australia Post staff were sacked.  Mr Katter asked the Minister for Communications:

 “Australia Post’s CEO pre-corporatisation received $360,000, Ahmed Fahour the current CEO enjoys $5.6 million.

France’s Postal Services CEO receives $1m whilst the United States CEO only $550,000.

Pre Fahour stamps cost 50c; now $1.

Minister, no more Christmas cards.

In 2014 Australia Post sacked 900 staff. In the same year, Mr Fahour’s Australia Post donated $2.8m to his brother’s Islamic Museum.

In light of Ahmed’s Australia Post’s generosity, Minister, could I get $30,000 to repair the Catholic Church in Julia Creek?”

 

McDonalds nuke bacon because it could contaminate other food and lose Halal status

Islam strikes again

Letter to the Editor

I had to pick something up from Grays Online at Lidcombe yesterday and on the way back we called into Maccas on the corner of Parramatta Rd and Silverwater Rd.

shop

I got a Quarter Pounder and my wife got some Crispy Chicken, BLT Burger (Bacon, Lettuce, Tomato) the crispy was some rectangular things like corn chips but her bacon was cold and sort of pale and watery. When she questioned it at the counter and said the bacon should be cooked and a bit crispy, she was informed that they now do the bacon in the microwave because if they put it on the grill it would contaminate the other meats and they would lose their HALAL Certification. She then said,

“So I can’t have it how we have eaten it all our lives because this minority say it offends them?” The only reply was a shrug of the shoulders and a comment that this was a HALAL Store.

It seems that even the mighty Maccas have bowed to the Muslim Halal Beast. So next time you get a burger from Maccas and wonder why the bacon doesn’t taste right, you’ll know that it was thawed out and heated up in the microwave because it offends less that 3% of the population, (according to Google) and they want to keep their Halal Certification.

I guess that scratches Maccas off my food list. Maybe a good thing and I’ll lose some weight.

Top pay for Aust Post boss who produces nothing but $1 stamps

14 February 2017: Today KAP Member for Kennedy, Bob Katter delivered a Question without Notice in Question Time to the Minister for Communications about the $5.6m pay packet for the CEO of Australia Post – Ahmed Fahour.

 Mr Katter’s Question raised Mr Fahour’s pay; the cost of postage doubling to $1 a letter; and the $2.8m pre-tax donation it is reported that Australia Post “mutually agreed” to give to the Islamic Museum of Australia, founded by Ahmed Fahour’s brother Moustafa Fahour, when in the same year 900 Australia Post staff were sacked.  Mr Katter asked the Minister for Communications:

Australia Post CEO get $5.9m a year to produce only $1 stamps and make huge donation to Islamic museum

Australia Post CEO Ahmed Fahour gets $5.9m a year to produce only $1 stamps and make a huge donation to Islamic museum

“Australia Post’s CEO pre-corporatisation received $360,000, Ahmed Fahour the current CEO enjoys $5.6 million.

France’s Postal Services CEO receives $1m whilst the United States CEO only $550,000.

Pre Fahour stamps cost 50c; now $1.

Minister, no more Christmas cards. 

In 2014 Australia Post sacked 900 staff. In the same year, Mr Fahour’s Australia Post donated $2.8m to his brother’s Islamic Museum. 

In light of Ahmed’s Australia Post’s generosity, Minister, could I get $30,000 to repair the Catholic Church in Julia Creek?” 

On appointment in 2010 Mr Fahour was paid $2,086,710.  This salary package has almost tripled in 6 years to $5.6m.

Mr Katter has highlighted exorbitant CEO pay as a consequence of privatisation and deregulation; and it is not limited to Australia Post.

“The case was strongly pleaded by Lance Hockridge, to privatise Queensland Rail.  Mr Hockridge was the then CEO and as a senior public servant would have been on around $250,000 a year.  Within a few years after privatisation he was reported to be paying himself a package in excess of $6m a year, for exactly the same job.

“According to the Australian and the Daily Telegraph with one article titled ‘Happy Dragon’, assuming these stories are accurate, it would mean Gail Kelly had received $77m in 8 years, between 2002-2009.   “Happy Dragon indeed, but where is St George?” Mr Katter asked.

“Sol Trujillo for little more than 3.5 years at Telstra was paid $40m.  Ben Butler at the Courier Mail said ‘complaints had a 241% increase in three years during Trujillo’s reign at Telstra’.  Before he arrived at Telstra share prices were $5, when he left they were $3.

“Piketty in his landmark book, stated clearly that the world’s wealth now is going to the managerial class, which effectively sets their own wages.  He makes the point that 100 years ago the world’s wealth was going to the owner class, the Carnegies, the Fords, the Rockefellers.  People who risked their own money and built the motor vehicle industry, the steel industry, the American railways industry.

“It is now going to a class of people that really produce nothing.  Particularly in Australia’s case they simply cut workforce numbers and send the jobs overseas.  Then pay themselves an extra $1m a year for closing down an Australian industry.  “They cry out for foreign investment, which of course means CEOs pay themselves increasingly more.  Until now we reach the point where the only thing we export are jobs.

“Essington Lewis who created the biggest company on earth BHP, an Australian company, when he died he had an estate of $1.7m.  In today’s terms an estate worth a measly $2.4m, which would not buy you a decent home in Sydney today.

“Essington Lewis, Les Thiess (coal), Lang Hancock (iron ore), Laurence Hartnett (motor vehicles) all died with very little money. Their riches were in another treasure chest which, please god, they are enjoying now.

“Their riches were what they gave to their fellow Australians.  That was how those men measured their wealth”, Mr Katter said.

Obama’s deadly Islamic legacy

Islam could reign supreme in the US according to these statistics compiled by an astute American reader from Illinois. Obama has long been accused of being a closet Muslim and Trump’s inauguration speech certainly left the US people in no doubt he will deal with crazed Islamics across the world. His immediate problem will be eradicating IS operatives in the US. Germany has more then one million imported Islamics and the German identity and culture according to German researchers, will be lost within 20 years. France is in the same boat. With this startling evidence staring the Australian duopoly government in the face, Prime Minister Turnbull vows to bring in another 15,000 refugees from Islamic countries.

Obama entering a Mosque

Obama entering a US mosque for prayer.

  • All of a sudden, Islam is taught in schools. Christianity and the bible are banned in schools.
  • All of a sudden we must allow prayer rugs everywhere and allow for Islamic prayer in schools, airports and businesses.
  • All of a sudden we must stop serving pork in prisons.
  • All of a sudden we are inundated with law suits by Muslims who are offended by American culture.
  • All of a sudden we must allow burkas to be worn everywhere even though you have no idea who or what is covered up under them.
  • All of a sudden Muslims are suing employers and refusing to do their jobs if they personally deem it conflicts with Sharia Law.
  • All of a sudden the Attorney General of the United States vows to prosecute anyone who engages in “anti-Muslim speech”.
  • All of a sudden, Jihadists who engage in terrorism and openly admit they acted in the name of Islam and ISIS, are emphatically declared they are NOT Islamic by our leaders and/or their actions are determined NOT to be terrorism, but other nebulous terms like ‘workplace violence.”
  • All of a sudden, it becomes Policy that Secular Middle East dictators that were benign or friendly to the West, must be replaced by Islamists and the Muslim Brotherhood.
  • All of a sudden our troops are withdrawn from Iraq and the middle east, giving rise to ISIS.
  • All of a sudden, America has reduced its nuclear stockpiles to 1950 levels, as Obama’s stated goal of a nuke-free America by the time he leaves office continues uninterrupted.
  • All of a sudden, a deal with Iran must be made at any cost, with a pathway to nuclear weapons and HUNDREDS of BILLIONS of dollars handed over to fund their programs.
  • All of a sudden America APOLOGIZES to Muslim states and sponsors of terror worldwide for acts of aggression, war and sabotage THEY perpetrate against our soldiers.
  • All of a sudden, the American Navy is diminished to 1917 Pre-World War I levels of only 300 ships. The Army is at pre-1940 levels. The Air Force scraps 500 planes and planned to retire the use of the A-10 Thunderbolt close air support fighter. A further draw down of another 40,000 military personnel is in progress.
  • All of a sudden half of our aircraft carriers are recalled for maintenance by Obama rendering the Atlantic unguarded, NONE are in the Middle East.
  • All of a sudden Obama has to empty Guantanamo Bay of captured Jihadists and let them loose in Jihad-friendly Islamic states. He demands to close the facility.
  • All of a sudden America will negotiate with terrorists and trade FIVE Taliban commanders for a deserter and Jihad sympathizer.
  • All of a sudden there is no money for American poor, disabled veterans, jobless Americans, hungry Americans, or displaced Americans but there is endless money for Obama’s “Syrian refugee” resettlement programs.
  • All of sudden there is an ammunition shortage in the USA.
  • All of a sudden, the most important thing for Obama to do after a mass shooting by two Jihadists, is disarm American Citizens.
  • All of a sudden, the President of the United States cannot attend the Christian Funerals of a Supreme Court Justice and a former First Lady because of previous (seemingly unimportant) commitments.
  • All of a sudden the President of the United States won’t attend the funeral of a flag-rank Officer (Gen. Greene) killed in action; he played golf. But he sends a big delegation to Michael Brown’s funeral. He sends a minor delegation to Margaret Thatcher’s funeral. He won’t acknowledge Chris Kyle’s murder but he’ll fly the Flag at half mast for Whitney Houston.
  • All of a sudden, I’m sick to my stomach. I’m not sure the majority of Americans recognize the seriousness of the situation and how much “progress” has been made by Islam these last 7 years, a very brief time compared to a 75 year lifetime!-contributed by a US reader

Come an get me musloids

Ann Barnhardt is described as “a livestock and grain commodity broker and marketing consultant, American patriot, traditional Catholic, and unwitting counter-revolutionary blogger. “ She has taken on Islam and they have noticed.

DEATH THREAT:

To: annbarnhardt
I’m going to kill you when I find you. Don’t think I won’t, I know where you and your parents live and all I’ll need is one phone-call to kill you all.

 mufcadnan123!

 

usa lady

ANN’S RESPONSE:
Re: Watch your back.
Hello mufcadnan123!
You don’t need to “find” me. My address is 9175 Kornbrust Circle, Lone Tree, CO 80124.
Luckily for you, there are daily DIRECT FLIGHTS from Heathrow to Denver.

Here’s what you will need to do. After arriving at Denver and passing through customs, you will need to catch the shuttle to the rental car facility.

Once in your rental car, take Pena Boulevard to I-225 south. Proceed on I-225 south to I-25 south. Proceed south on I-25 to Lincoln Avenue which is exit 193. Turn right (west) onto Lincoln . Proceed west to the fourth light, and turn left (south) onto Ridgegate Boulevard . Proceed south, through the roundabout toKornbrust Drive . Turn left onto Kornbrust Drive and then take an immediate right onto Kornbrust Circle . I’m at 9175.

Just do me one favor. PLEASE wear body armor. I have some new ammunition that I want to try out, and frankly, close-quarter body shots without armor would feel almost unsporting from my perspective. That and the fact that I’m probably carrying a good 50 I.Q. points on you makes it morally incumbent upon me to spot you a tactical advantage.

However, being that you are a miserable, trembling coward, I realize that you probably are incapable of actually following up on any of your threats without losing control of your bowels and crapping your pants while simultaneously sobbing yourself into hyperventilation. So, how about this:

why don’t you contact the main mosque here in Denver and see if some of the local musloids here in town would be willing to carry out your attack for you?

After all, this is what your “perfect man” mohamed did (pig excrement be upon him). You see, mohamed, being a miserable coward and a con artist, would send other men into battle to fight on his behalf. Mohamed would stay at the BACK of the pack and let the stupid, ignorant suckers like you that he had conned into his political cult do the actual fighting and dying. Mohamed would then fornicate with the dead men’s wives and children. You should follow mohamed’s example!

Here is the contact info for the main mosque here in Denver :
Masjid Abu Bakr
Imam Karim Abu Zaid
2071 South Parker Road
Denver , CO 80231
Phone: 303-696-9800
Email: denvermosque@yahoo.com

I’m sure they would be delighted to hear from you. Frankly, I’m terribly disappointed that not a SINGLE musloid here in the United States has made ANY attempt to rape and behead me. But maybe I haven’t made myself clear enough, so let me do that right now.

I will NEVER, EVER, EVER submit to islam. I will fight islam with every fiber of my being for as long as I live because islam is pure satanic evil. If you are really serious about islam dominating the United States and the world, you are going to have to come through me. You are going to have to kill me. Good luck with that. And understand that if you or some of your musloid boyfriends do actually manage to kill me, The Final Crusade will officially commence five minutes later, and then, despite your genetic mental retardation, you will be made to understand with crystal clarity what the word “defeat” means. Either way, I win, so come and get it.

Deo adjuvante non timendum (with the help of God there is nothing to be afraid of).

Mad Islamic kills 84 with a truck at Bastille Day celebration

ALP, LNP and Greens to welcome 15,000 Muslim refugees

A large truck laden with guns and ammunition today careered through crowds in Nice as they lined the streets for Bastille Day festivities, killing 84 and injuring another 100, some critically.

Onlookers reported shots coming from the truck cabin before the driver was shot dead by police.

While more mass killings occur in France and the horror of Middle East carnage continues in the name of Islam,  Liberal, Labor and their bedmates the Greens blunder on blithely unaware that such an incident could occur tomorrow anywhere in Australia.

Much of the Australian community was outraged at Prime Minister Malcolm Turnbull’s public endorsement of Islam by supporting Muslims celebrating Ramadan.

The poor 2016 election result for the Liberal Party and the election of Pauline Hanson to the senate demonstrates the general dislike of extreme Muslims by Australian society.

The trilogy’s united support for Islam flies in the face of the majority of the Australian population.

While Europe burns, Turnbull, Shorten and Di Natale will soon welcome another 15,000 Muslim refugees into Australia after the leaders were bullied  by the United Nations.

“From my family to yours, Ramadan Mubarak ” Turnbull wrote on his Facebook page.

Turnbull’s Sydney electorate of Wentworth reportedly is controlled by Muslims who command more than 15 per cent of the vote.

Pauline Hanson to attend demonstration near Cairns Saturday

Pauline Hanson along with some of her senate candidates will visit Cairns on Saturday, July 16 to take part in a rally at Gordonvale against the Labor party’s  widely-hated vegetation management laws due to be debated in State Parliament in August.

Budget allows big tax deductions for Sharia finance and Sharia law follows

Allan Jones tips the bucket on a sneaky clause in the Federal Budget allowing Arab money to enter Australia to buy public infrastructure and get a big tax deduction on profits. This is the result of Liberal and Labor free marketing and deregulation and Australia loses its last vestige of sovereignty. Following Sharia finance is Sharia law.

Regional Queensland to provide safe haven for eligible refugees

April 7, 2016

longreach refugee

Eligible refugees will soon be making their way to regional Queensland.

It’s part of the Federal Government’s Safe Haven Enterprise Visa (SHEV) scheme, agreed to by the Queensland Government late in March.

SHEV is open to those who have arrived in Australia “illegally” but who qualify for protection and “have demonstrated an intention to work and or study in Australia”.

It is a path to permanent residency, and many see it as a win-win for regional communities who are desperate for workers.

But the Federation of Diverse Cultural Communities in Queensland (FDCCQ) says more can still be done to help get the SHEV scheme off the ground.

President of FDCCQ, Agnes Whiten says without the financial support base, it will all be for nothing.

“FDCCQ is willing and able to support this initiative and do much more, but we need funding to do so,” Ms Whiten explains.

“Our aim is to encourage migrants and refugees to settle in the regions where their skills can be utilised.”

Currently there are settlement services for migrants and refugees in Queensland, but they are concentrated mainly in the South East corner of the state and these organisations need support in enhancing what they offer.

They say there’s a need to connect migrants with each other and the communities that they live in.

“The scheme and it’s success is vital to Queensland’s future but employment opportunities and local support will be crucial,” continues Ms Whiten.

“Relocating these people with the help of new technology will ensure a smooth transition both culturally and economically.”

A SHEV holder can also apply for a prescribed permanent or temporary onshore substantive visa (except a permanent Protection visa) if, for at least 42 months of the 5 years of the SHEV, they:

• were employed in regional Australia and did not receive any social security benefits;

• were enrolled in full time study in regional Australia;

• a combination of the above

The FDCCQ say the new scheme is a step in the right direction to facilitate greater community engagement, regional business engagement and business to business opportunities.

It’s a start to help unite culturally and linguistically diverse communities as never before.

“Our organisation was started because we are passionate about helping migrants to settle and to feel they belong in regional Queensland,” Ms Whiten says.

“We are now a culturally diverse society; we have embraced multiculturalism so we can’t send 25% of Australians who come from a different background back home.”
