Pauline Hanson’s popularity spooks Labor before Queensland election

Labor figures pushing for election before the end of the year due to worries One Nation’s vote will increase

The One Nation leader has emerged as a spectre for Queensland political pundits who remember when her personal popularity took her party to a 23% primary vote, nabbing 11 seats in the state’s unicameral parliament in 1998.

While she is yet to see those heights uniformly, with One Nation polling at about 15% in statewide Newspolls and hovering at about 8% nationwide, seat by seat it is a different story.

“It is definitely a factor,” one party heavyweight told Guardian Australia. “Not the only one. There are boundary redistributions, local factors and other issues but it is there.

“There are those within the party pushing for it to happen soon, looking at the Newspoll figures, worried it will increase. But then the seat-by-seat figures are showing One Nation is much higher than that, across a range of seats.

“So you have to weigh up – can we turn that around? Do we risk more seats heading that way?”

Culleton brings criminal charges against Brandis

The Federal Government and Opposition continue to fall apart driven by corruption scandals, citizenship disqualification and a judiciary acting as the arm of dishonest political parties.

Former One Nation WA senator Rod Culleton has borne the brunt of a corrupt and unaccountable judiciary marching to the orders of Liberal Attorney General George Brandis.

This time justice might catch up to the errant Brandis after he was served with a summons to face the Magistrates Court on a criminal conspiracy charge.

Attorney General George Brandis faces disqualification from two fronts. One is a criminal charge against him and two is an entitlement to German citizenship.

Culleton has charged the beleaguered Attorney General with conspiracy allegedly over his part in giving the senate false information to have the High Court disqualify Culleton over his bankruptcy which he says was an intentionally incorrect finding of a Federal Court judge.

Culleton launched the private prosecution after a meeting with the Chief Magistrate in Canberra.

Meanwhile the Director of Public Prosecutions is attempting to take over the case and shut it down, no doubt on orders from the accused Attorney General.

Culleton says the DPP is a public servant, “not a duly elected public officer.”

“The Director has no right or qualifications to take over my case. They are not a judge or jury,” he claimed.

“I was tossed out of the senate because my first question to Senator Brandis pointed out the High Court and all other courts had been functioning unlawfully since 2004 when the courts removed the Crown(Queen) from all process.” (Cairns News Nov 22, 2016)

Disqualification of sitting politicians under Section 44 of the Commonwealth Constitution of Australia, should also apply to lawyers or barristers who sit in Parliament.

“The Parliament is in conflict with the Constitution by having lawyers as politicians,” Mr Culleton explained.

“These members are officers of the court and being a politician they receive a reward under the Crown and as such should be disqualified under Section 44 too.”

A constitutional analyst has pointed out to Cairns News that George Brandis’ parents were both born in Germany, entitling him to German citizenship.

“”This would bar him from sitting,” the analyst said.

 

 

Hanson speaks the truth about Muslims taking over Australia

Speech in the senate August 9, 2017

Senator Pauline Hanson sorts out the haunting Muslim problem facing all Australians

I am well known for speaking up about immigration, but what isn’t well known is that I am not anti migrant. In 1996, I spoke out about the high rate of immigration from Asia that would have put us on a trajectory of losing our Australian identity. I support immigration when it is in the best interests of Australia, but we have made a mistake in accepting high levels of migrants from countries where democracy is unknown and accepting people who follow Islam and its political ideology.

One of the reasons we don’t know enough about the extent of the problems with Islamic immigration is that political parties don’t want to upset the Muslim vote. There is plenty of information collected, but it is not published and it is not available to senators like myself. In hiding the evidence of high unemployment and high dependence on social welfare, the government hopes you won’t discover the problems associated with Australian Muslim communities.

Despite the best efforts of Labor and the coalition, we have found some reliable information. The unemployment rate amongst Australian Muslims is more than double the average rate and it is more than 50 per cent higher than the nearest other major religious group. The unemployment rate for Muslim women is higher than that of Muslim men, making Muslim women the most likely religious group to be unemployed in Australia. This persistent high-unemployment level among Australian Muslims translates into high levels of income support in the form of payments made by the Department of Social Services.

I don’t have enough time to go into greater detail, but in densely populated Muslim suburbs, Muslims are paid high levels of taxpayer-funded support in the form of disability pensions, carer pensions, carer allowances and other forms of income support. Australian Muslims are a significant drain on the public purse, because of the rates of unemployment and dependence on social welfare. You will not hear these facts from Labor, because Labor is muzzled in pursuit of keeping the Muslim vote it already heavily relies on. We looked at the electoral areas containing 10,000 or more Australian Muslims, using 2016 census information. Every one of those 15 federal seats is held by Labor, and 50.4 per cent of all Australian Muslims live in these 15 Labor seats. It is the concentration of the Muslim vote, in a relatively small number of postcodes and electoral divisions, which gives Australian Muslims a much higher influence in Australian politics. What we know for certain is that Labor needs the Muslim vote to keep those seats in the parliament. The reliance on the Muslim vote in turn gives Australian Muslims an important say over Labor policy, and that influence is increasing because of the high birth rates among Muslim women. In fact, the number of Australian Muslims doubled in the decade between 2006 and 2016.

The young age profile of Muslims in Australia means that Muslims will increase naturally at a greater rate than any other. The concentration of Australian Muslims in a limited number of postcode areas, together with the high rates of birth, means Labor is now firmly in the hands of the Muslim voter. The demographic information is irrefutable. The only issue is how Australian Muslims will change the Australian Labor Party and Australia.

The Muslim vote has pushed hard for Labor to abandon its traditional support for Israel and they have kept Labor silent on the fate of Christians in the Middle East, particularly Maronite and Coptic Christians, who once made up 20 per cent of the Middle East and now make up less than 5 per cent. In the lower house seat of Blaxland, in NSW, there are 50,995 Muslims, or 29.2 per cent of the population. In the Sydney seat of Watson, there are 40, 903 Muslims or 23.4 per cent of the population. In Victoria it’s a similar situation. In Calwell, there are 29,324 Muslims and in Werriwa there are 21, 761 Muslims.

Labor has made a conscious decision to sell its soul for the Muslim vote. Every speech and every comment made by Labor is now made with reference to keeping the Muslim vote. Labor cannot speak out in opposition or act in government on issues affecting Australian Muslims because it fears losing seats in parliament. The numbers are so finely balanced in the lower house of this parliament that the loss of this small clutch of seats would see Labor’s chance of government end. Labor’s dependence on the Muslim vote is frightening, because a small but fast-growing group, opposed to our way of life, is bending Labor to its will. And communities of Coptic Christians and Lebanese Maronites and other Christians know how that story ends.

The Muslim vote opposes same-sex marriage because the notion of sexual orientation is against the fundamental teachings of Islam. So here is Labor’s dilemma: how does Labor get same-sex marriage passed, bury the hundreds of thousands of ‘no’ votes and not upset Muslims in Labor electorates? The best way forward is to let parliament decide, and then they will tell their Muslim voters they had to follow the party line—gutless!

It is common knowledge that areas with high concentrations of Australian Muslims are also areas associated with organised crime and acts of terrorism performed in the name of Islam. Labor knows this as well as any Australian, but it cannot speak directly, so it talks in riddles. Who can forget Bill Shorten talking to the cameras about combating extreme extremism and hoping those watching could see that he was like any one in a hostage situation. He was communicating in riddles, hoping not to offend the hostage takers—that is, the Muslim vote in Australia.

Australian Muslims take all the benefits that Australia has to offer, but Australian Muslims are underrepresented in the workforce and underrepresented in the Defence forces, instead preferring to fight for ISIL in Syria and Iraq. A federal investigation into the status of foreign fighters found 96 per cent had been on welfare benefits, including disability pensions, before leaving to fight overseas. It’s a disgrace that more Australian Muslims have gone to fight in Syria and Iraq than have joined the Australian Defence Forces to defend Australia. It is a disgrace our pension system is abused by Australian Muslims, and it is a disgrace the Department of Social Services is inept. It is undeniable that many Australian Muslims choose to be separate from other Australians living in communities. Many of them never leave these communities except when accessing government services and benefits and having holidays in their countries of birth.

One Nation supporters have a positive view of migrants when they are willing to become active citizens, to work and to make Australia a better place. However, we are not seeing too much of that from Australian Muslims. It would be comforting to think the problems we have with Muslim refugees and second-generation Muslims will resolve, given time and money, but there is no evidence anywhere in the world that this will be the case.

We need to learn the lesson from other countries who have accepted high numbers of Muslims into their country. They have found that, as the number of Muslims rise in a country, the tolerance of those Muslims to others in that country falls. Then, Muslims demand special treatment, which is given for the sake of appeasement, but is never enough. The demands just keep coming—discussions to change the words ‘race’ to ‘people’ in Section 51(xxvi) of the Australian Constitution for the benefit of Muslims because they are not a race, they are a people.

There are no democratic Islamic countries in the world. If we don’t ban further immigration from Islamic countries, our way of life will be lost and the freedoms we take for granted will be gone.

 

Millions take to the streets in Italy opposing mandatory vaccines for kids

This video has many clips of massive street marches across Italy in July this year waging war against the Italian government and its implementation of the New World Order.

This video without doubt proves conclusively all of Australia’s major media organisations have colluded with the Liberal/Labor government to censor any anti-vaccination activities outside of Australia.

If any of our Australian readers have seen these demonstrations on any news bulletin please advise.

Malcolm and Lucy Turnbull have much to lose due to Lucy’s directorship of a large pharmaceutical company.

We will follow up the Italian campaign as soon as we contact our European correspondent.

Former ‘bank-bashing’ WA Senator Rod Culleton files charges against Hanson

from Gil Hanrahan in Melbourne

Senator Pauline Hanson

One Nation Senator Pauline Hanson, two of her senators and Attorney General George Brandis QC, have had criminal conspiracy charges filed against them in the Melbourne registry of the High Court of Australia.

The complaint was filed by former One Nation WA Senator Rodney Culleton on Friday June 23 and includes former colleagues senators Brian Burston (NSW) and Malcolm Roberts (Qld).

They have been charged under Section 43, Crimes Act 1914 (Cth).

The summons will be served by Mr Culleton on Monday, June 26.

Former senator Rodney Culleton, was sacked from the senate on Jan 12 after being found bankrupt by the Federal Court. His brother-in-law Peter Georgiou was nominated by the High Court to sit in his place as a One Nation senator for Western Australia.

Rod Culleton former One Nation WA Senator

Mr Culleton filed criminal charges of intent to attempt to pervert the course of justice in respect of the judicial power of the Commonwealth.

Mr Cullleton accused the senators of “seconding a motion in the Senate on the 7th November 2016, to refer the question of the possibility that Rodney Norman Culleton would be subjected to a term of imprisonment by a Magistrate at Armidale, and the Senate did refer the said Rodney Norman Culleton’s eligibility to the High Court.”

The charge further reads “…..and you allowed the matter to continue, even after an agreed Statement of Facts was filed in that Court proving beyond any reasonable doubt that the said Rodney Norman Culleton was never under potential imprisonment and thereby in breach of your sworn public duty, attempted to pervert the course of justice in respect of the judicial power of the Commonwealth.

“ (this is) An Offence against S 43 Crimes Act 1914 (Cth). Under S 129 (5) Evidence Act 1995, the transcript of proceedings in the Senate are admissible against you.”

The charges were filed in support of a notice under 78B of the Judiciary Act 1903 of a constitutional matter alleging the Attorney General had withheld the agreed statement of facts of the referral to the courts by a motion instead of a mandated petition which in any case exceeded the 40 day requirement to lodge an objection to the eligibility of a sitting member.

The agreed statements of fact were not filed in the HCA by the Attorney General.

Culleton said the statements of fact clearly show that he would never have been sentenced to imprisonment for the alleged theft of a truck key two years ago.

“I got no say and the agreed facts were never presented to the bench,” he said.

“Brandis should have filed the agreed facts that were signed of off by the Australian Government solicitor stating that I would never have been sentenced.

“Sect 25 (1) (a)  of the Crime Sentencing  Procedure Act says the local court must not make an order of imprisonment if the offender is absent.

“This matter has never been held at trial but was only based on non-agreed facts put to the HCA by Brandis.

“He has used taxpayers money to unlawfully remove me from senate at the request of the banks.”

No date has yet been set for a hearing.

Senator Hanson was unavailable for comment.

During Culleton’s short tenure sitting in the senate he forced the High Court to restore the Queen in legal process.

He says the restored ‘Queen of Australia’, does not exist. Culleton has been a huge thorn in the side of the banks, calling for a federal inquiry into banking practices after presenting evidence of widespread corruption involving farm foreclosures.

Bureaucratic salaries account for more than 40% of Qld budget

Member for Buderim and Queensland One Nation Leader Steve Dickson believes Premier Annastacia Palaszczuk has brought democracy to it’s knees in Queensland after refusing to answer a Question Without Notice during budget week claiming it was actually two questions.

“On Wednesday I asked the Premier ‘While every day Queenslanders and businesses are finding it difficult to pay electricity bills and keep their heads above water financially, how many Queensland government employees are receiving taxpayer funded salaries in excess of $200,000 per annum?’ It was a very straight single question”, Mr Dickson said.

He added, “In part the Premier replied. ‘There are a couple of questions there; I will take the last one first. I am happy if the member wants to put that question on notice and I will get back to him about it. I do not have that information off the top of my head.’ There were not two questions, only one. It was a question about the number of government employees on salaries in excess of $200,000 when considering that so many people struggle to pay their power bills!”

One Nation Qld MP Steve Dickson with Pauline Hanson, embarrasses Premier over bureaucratic salaries

“The Premier was obviously rattled by my question, as I understand salaries account for more than 40 per cent of the entire state budget. But more particularly it’s the high priced bureaucrats Queenslanders should know about. I asked the question two days ago. The Premier needs to answer the question before she heads overseas tomorrow. Queenslanders deserve an answer”, Mr Dickson said

Culleton will not go away greatly upsetting the Liberal Party and its High Court

Former Western Australian senator Rod Culleton would have scuttled the criminal activities of the banks had he continued in the senate but Liberal Senators Stephen Parry and George Brandis, and their subservient courts acting under instruction from the ‘banks collective’ acted unlawfully by removing Culleton from the senate.

Parry has been compromised by his part in the Port Arthur massacre and will do everything he is told.  Parry’s involvement in the Port Arthur scam has previously been revealed in Cairns News.

Cairns News has no misgivings that the phantom government is making the Liberal Party lean very hard on Parry and Brandis to keep Culleton out.

In reality the WA businessman and Liberal sycophant Dick Lester spent $1.6 million in legal fees, pursuing Culleton for an alleged $205,536.50 debt that resulted in his unlawful bankruptcy.

Former WA senator Rod Culleton warns of biggest Constitutional alteration since Federation

Culleton’s affidavits showed that Lester was not interested in any financial payout but instead wanted Culleton to give him the patent to his invention and the shares to his company.

Culleton believes that Lester used the courts to try to gain control of Culleton’s company and colluded to ensure his removal from the Senate.

CULLETON SIGNALS “MAY-DAY” FOR WA

by Saraya Beric

West Australian ‘Senator in exile’, Rod Culleton is firing shots from all angles to reveal the truth in relation to his unconstitutional removal from the Senate earlier this year.

The resilient farmer was disqualified from the Senate on 23rd December  2016 over a purported bankruptcy. He and others have now filed petitions into the Senate under Standing Order 207, which allows people to dispute the election of his replacement. Mr Culleton says that he has filed a 231-paged affidavit into the High Court yesterday making this move, after learning from a ‘leaked source’ that the Government is moving to sue him for the salary he collected as a  duly elected Senator for West Australia.

“In January, Senator Parry declared that I had been disqualified, yet the bankruptcy matter was still before the court at the time. He ignored the court stay on all proceedings and the notices from my legal team; he interfered with the process and I believe he breached both the Bankruptcy Act and Commonwealth Constitution,” Culleton argued.

“Senator Brandis, as Attorney General, was also asked to intervene to ensure a lawful and transparent process but was found derelict in his duty in refusing to act to rectify the anomalies. This matter is very serious, as it constitutes a breach of the Senate Standing Orders and both Brandis and Parry, I believe, are in contempt of the Senate standing orders.”

“Furthermore, the Governor of West Australia, who had the jurisdiction to appoint a replacement Senator because the WA State Parliament was not sitting, had not ratified the appointment. The procedure under Section 15 of the Commonwealth Constitution clearly demands these procedures are followed, however there is no evidence to suggest this has happened. Documents tabled in the Senate show that Senator Parry used the 10th March, 2017, Court of Disputed Returns Order over a matter which had been annulled, to fill the ‘vacant position’ instead, clearly showing that correct procedure was not adhered to.”

“Senator Parry has crossed the legal boundaries, breaching his responsibilities as Senate President and must review the Senate rules on this matter. He is not above the law and has clearly usurped the powers of the Senate and the West Australian Parliament. This has become an embarrassment for the government and the evidence points to Senator Parry and Senator Brandis having mislead the Senate.”

“My submissions state that the Supreme, Federal and High Courts breached Constitutional clauses, the Parliamentary Privileges Act and the Senate’s manual on its powers, procedures and practices, OdgersSenate Practice, which instructs that ‘no vacancy is to be filled until an outcome is final, or that placement will be void’” .

ONE NATION WA ELECTION FALL OUT

Katter calls for minor parties to come together & don’t forget the Culleton factor

KAP Member for Kennedy, Bob Katter watched Pauline Hanson’s One Nation Party’s performance in the Western Australia (WA) election closely. It is Mr Katter’s little party, the KAP – who stand to gain or lose the most from One Nation’s performance in the looming Qld election.

Mr Katter said, “Anyone in Qld who thinks One Nation is dead in the water is badly misreading the situation. The LNP is toxic in WA, but the difference in Qld is, so is the ALP (as well as the LNP).

“The disaster of One Nation giving all their preferences to Liberals, and voting with them all the time in Canberra… (This brought down Tony Windsor who was always voting with the ALP), One Nation is beginning to look like a LNP lamb in wolf’s ‘Third Force’ clothing, the Hanson Party must realise the reason people vote for them is because they’re not one of the majors.

“But when in Canberra, One Nation has taken a stand on the following (and these were all burning issues):

“Came out against a banking Royal Commission,

“Came out in support for the sale of Kidman to Shanghai Cred (whoever their partners are is irrelevant),

“Voted for the Bash up the Workers Legislation (ABCC),

“Voted for the Bash up the Farmers and Tourist Operators legislation (the Backpackers Tax).

“Not only does this portray One Nation as an LNP supporter, but it portrays them as LNP.

“But if you look like a duck and quack like a duck, then you will get shot like a duck.

“We would like One Nation not to duck, but listen to calm, reasoned and experienced counsel.  This is the kind of counsel we always reply upon.

“Also, people have underestimated the reaction to throwing WA Senator Rodney Culleton out of the Senate. Cool heads would have seen the disastrous ramifications of this.

“We shall be urging all of the Third Force parties in Australia, whatever their strengths and weaknesses, to come together.

“All the little parties have one strength in common; they were not the ones who exported our industries and jobs overseas and imported workers into Australia to take what’s left of our jobs. That was (believe it or not) mostly the ALP, and most certainly the LNP.

“It will be a great tragedy for this nation if the Xenophons and Lambies, the KAPs and all the other non-major parties do not have a coming together.

“Our strengths are in our differences but one thing we all have in common is we tenaciously oppose the extremism of the Free Market ideologues and their privatisation, de-regulation and globalisation.

“To the people of QLD, don’t worry about WA; you’ve made a decision to leave the majors and as the Johnathan Thurston and his NQ Cowboys say — stay in the fight!”

Christensen neck to neck with One Nation but Pauline does not support a bank Royal Commission

  KAP Federal Member for Kennedy, Bob Katter has called on Australians to contact their local politicians and give them The Request’- to support the Banking Royal Commission/Commission of Inquiry. 

A Newspoll released today shows that sitting member for Dawson, LNP George Christensen is neck to neck with One Nation, which places him on a suicide mission if he does not cross the floor to support Katters bill for a Royal Commission.

 Although 68 per cent of voters in Dawson support the Royal Commission, they haven’t yet realised One Nation is now another branch of the Liberal Party and will not support the inquiry.

 

LNP Federal Member George Christensen will cross the floor of parliament to support Katter's bill for a bank Royal Commission

LNP Federal Member George Christensen will cross the floor of parliament to support Katter’s bill for a bank Royal Commission

George would be best placed for his longevity in Parliament to support Katter and join his party.

 PM Malcolm Turnbull and his Cabinet, including Barnaby Joyce have been instructed by the Australian Bankers Association new chairman, Anna Bligh (ex Qld ALP Premier), to prevent a Royal Commission from going ahead.

 Bligh is simply reinforcing a long-held policy of the ABA and the Liberals.

Only the executive arm of Government can call for a Royal Commission, so a Commission of Inquiry is being pursued with all the powers of a Royal Commission, but it will report to the Parliament, instead of the executive arm of Government.

To become law the Commission of Inquiry will require two members of the Government in the lower house to cross the floor.  The Federal Member for Dawson, George Christensen has publicly stated he will support a Commission of Inquiry – so one more Government MP’s vote is required for the bill to pass.

“So we just need one more.  There is only one language politicians understand and that is ‘we are going to get you, we are going to get rid of you at the next election’,” Mr Katter said.

“We have had 100s of people from all over Australia ringing my office and demanding a Royal Commission into the banks – which we already support and we introduced Commission of Inquiry legislation last year. 

“So from now on we are telling them to put ‘The Request’ to their local Federal Member of Parliament and get three people to do the same.  Those three people are then asked to get another three people each, who then get another three people….and so it continues.

“I’m telling Australians to contact their local Federal Member of Parliament and say ‘are you voting to support this?’  If the Local Federal Member is not supporting the Royal Commission into the Banks then say, ‘we officially inform you that we are working to get rid of you at the next election’.  It is not about saying we support someone else, it is just that we are getting rid of you.

“80% of the Australian people want a Royal Commission into the banks.  It is a litmus test really on whether you are there to represent and protect the established order, or if you are there to represent the people.  This could not be a more clear cut case.

“It is quite clear to me that George Christensen is a man of integrity and will cross the floor, as he has done before. He is a Lone Ranger.  Not another soul from the ALP or LNP has crossed the floor in the last 20 years. 

“Depending on definition there has been between 15 and 38 inquiries since 2010.  But the savagery of a Royal Commission and its powers can’t be ignored.  I never regretted the Royal Commission in QLD, even though it cost me and my Country Party greatly and many innocents were burned.  Even though we never put the bad guys in gaol, we did remove their protection and destroyed the corruption.  This is what a Royal Commission brings.
