Locations of new P 2 P speed cameras in Qld

Drive for traffic revenue escalated by a broke ALP State Government

The second round of public surveillance will soon be deployed by Queensland Police in the South East of the State when point to point speed cameras are rolled out later this year.

The Labor State Government has called tenders for the Point to Point (P2P) Average Speed Camera System to be installed in the South East region.

All vehicles including trucks will be monitored for an average speed between points.

GPS monitoring will be used to define both geographic points to calculate the speed of the vehicle between the points.

P 2 P cameras will soon be collecting millions going to consolidated revenue for the Labor State Government under the guise of ‘road safety’.

Any speed detections will be sent in real time from the equipment to police and The Main Roads department computer data bank.

This is the first time such surveillance methods have been used in Queensland. The Labor Party has outdone the Liberals in transgressing the privacy of motorists who will have to dig much deeper into their pockets to fund the largesse of the Queensland ALP.

Cairns News received from a trucking industry source the locations where the P2P cameras will be installed.

Beenleigh to Gaven, approx. 30 klm installed on overpasses.

Gateway Motorway between Nudgee and Bracken Ridge

Toowoomba second range crossing. All eastbound and westbound marked traffic lanes, including hard shoulders along the primary corridor, will be monitored.

Cecil Plains to Gore Hwy

Between Warrego Highway east and New England Highway (east and west bound)

Camera located 33.3 km west of Warrego Highway (east)

Camera located 10.3km west of Warrego Highway interchange

Between Mort Street interchange and Warrego Highway west (east and west bound)

Camera located 18.6km west of Warrego Highway interchange

Camera located 10.3km west of Warrego Highway interchange

Main Roads Minister Mark Bailey’s spin

The Camera Detected Offence Program (CDOP) is a key road safety element of the Queensland Speed Management Strategy and the National and Queensland Road Safety Action Plans. CDOP is managed jointly by the Department of Transport and Main Roads (TMR) and the Queensland Police Service (QPS). The Traffic Camera Office (TCO) manages CDOP activities on behalf of the QPS.

Mr Bailey will be safe from the predatory cameras – he doesn’t drive a car.

Real women say stop demonising men just because you hate them

Catherine Deneuve leads group of 100 women denouncing #MeToo campaign for ‘puritanism’

from the ABC and Cairns News

Actress Catherine Deneuve and 99 other French women have denounced a backlash against men following the Harvey Weinstein scandal, saying the #MeToo campaign against sexual harassment amounts to “puritanism” and is fuelled by a “hatred of men”.

In the aftermath of accusations against the US movie producer, millions of women took to social media to share their stories of being sexually harassed or assaulted, using the #MeToo hastag worldwide or #SquealOnYourPig (#balancetonporc).

 

French actress Catherine Deneuve  says the puritan campaign against men has gone too far saying a man’s right to “pester” a woman was an essential part of sexual freedom.
Sydney-based commentator and author, Stewie Jones-Cartwright agrees, telling Cairns News  the legion of “men-hating dykes” working for the ABC and other extremist women’s groups are getting too much media attention over normal male and female interaction. The media should be censored over their campaigns against men, he said.

 

“This urge to send men to the slaughterhouse, instead of helping women be more autonomous, helps the enemies of sexual freedom,” the 100 women, including 74-year old Deneuve, one of France’s most famous screen stars, said in a column published by Le Monde daily.

The man’s right to “pester” a woman was an essential part of sexual freedom, they said, describing the campaign as “puritanism”.

Marlene Schiappa, the French minister tasked with cracking down on violence against women, said the Weinstein scandal forced a rethink of attitudes towards sexual harassment in France, a country that cherishes its self-image as the land of seduction and romance.

Ms Schiappa kicked off nationwide consultations on a law that is due to include steps to fight sexual harassment on the streets as well as extend the statute of limitation for rape of minors.

In late October, protesters in Paris disrupted the opening of a retrospective of Roman Polanski’s work following new rape allegations against the French-Polish film director.

But for Deneuve and the other signatories of the letter, including writers and journalists, this went too far.

“This vigilante (online) justice has punished men in their jobs, forced some to resign, when all they did was touch a knee, try to steal a kiss, talk about ‘intimate’ matters in a work dinner,” they wrote.

“We defend a right to pester, which is vital to sexual freedom.”

Sydney commentator Stewie Jones-Cartwright said the campaign against men had gone on for too long, leaving a trail littered with wrecked lives and broken families over often false accusations by women.

“The Family Court is known among men’s groups as a forum to legally denounce mostly innocent husbands or defactos as child abusers, rapists or worse,” he said.

“The Craig McLachlan case is one of the worst media circuses I have seen in decades similar to the Rolf Harris acquittal on appeal in the UK on some charges which were false allegations of sexual abuse.

“The men-hating lesbians in the media should be sacked and prosecuted for their long campaign against often innocent men.”

Senate orders inquiry into the sacking of Senators Culleton and Day

Submissions called to investigate the unlawful removal of Senator Rod Culleton from the senate earlier this year.

What really happened?  Why did the Attorney General Liberal George Brandis, intentionally mislead the senate about Culleton and how did the Senate President Stephen Parry(former Port Arthur undertaker) remove Culleton without a motion of the senate? Section 47 of the Commonwealth Constitution of Australia says only the senate can rule on the eligibility of a senator.

The senate has ordered an inquiry into the sacking of WA senator Rod Culleton while Brandis and Parry head for the hills.

Brandis is hightailing it to London as the new High Commissioner. He will no doubt be called to give evidence. He has a problem.

‘On 6 December 2017, the Senate resolved that the following matter be referred to the Joint Standing Committee on Electoral Matters for inquiry and report by 6 February 2018:

The implications of recent decisions by the Court of Disputed Returns concerning section 44 of the Constitution on questions referred by the Parliament under section 376 of the Commonwealth Electoral Act 1918, with particular reference to:

(a) the decisions in connection with the disqualification of former Senators Bob Day and Rodney Culleton;
(b) a regime for disclosing information relating to aspects other than section 44(i), for which the Parliament has already provided;
(c) the form such a process might take and how it could be implemented; and
(d) any related matters.’

Senator Bob Day(above) and Rod Culleton could be reinstated to the senate after a senate inquiry investigates the circumstances of their removal

A healthy Great Barrier Reef spawns fictitious, costly scare campaigns

The never-ending battles of the Coral Sea

by Viv Forbes, science writer

For at least 50 years Australian taxpayers and other innocents have supported a parasitic industry in academia, bureaucracy, law, media and the tax-exempt Green Alarm “Charities”, all studying, regulating, inspecting and writing about yet another “imminent threat to Queensland’s Great Barrier Reef.”

The Queensland Labor Party Government is about to embark on another reef-runoff onslaught against coastal farmers that is intended to close down farming along the entire coastline, from Cooktown to Brisbane.

It has become the never-ending battle of the Coral Sea.

The threats change, but there is always a doomsday forecast – Crown-of-Thorns, oil drilling, fishing, cane farming, coastal shipping, global warming, ocean acidity, coral bleaching, port dredging, chemical and fertiliser runoff, coal transport, river sediments, loss of world heritage status etc. Every recycled scare, magnified by the media and parroted by politicians, generates more income for the alarm industry, usually at the expense of taxpayers, consumers or local industries.

The reality is that sea creatures would starve in pure water – all marine life needs nutrients, salts and minerals. These come from other life forms, from decomposing rocks and organic matter carried to the sea by rivers, from dissolving atmospheric gases, or from delta and shelf sediments stirred up by floods, cyclones, dredging or coastal shipping. No one supports over-use of toxic man-made chemicals, but well-run cane, cattle and coal companies can co-exist with corals.

Conservation bodies and the Great Barrier Reef Marine Park Authority conjure up doomsday scare campaigns for a healthy Barrier Reef to attract more funding from inept government

Corals first appeared 500 million years ago and have proven to be one of Earth’s great survivors. They outlasted the Carboniferous Forests, the Permian and Cretaceous extinctions, the dinosaurs, the mammoths, the Neanderthals and the Pleistocene cycles of ice age and warming. They thrive in warm tropical water, cluster around hot volcanic fumaroles and survive massive petroleum spills, natural oil seeps, tidal waves and volcanic dust. They have even recolonised the Montebello Island waters devastated by atomic bomb testing in the 1950’s.

The ENSO oscillation of blobs of warm Pacific water which caused recent coral bleaching can be identified in historical records for at least 400 years. Corals have survived El Nino warmings for thousands of years and they will probably outlast Homo Alarmism as Earth proceeds into the next glacial epoch.

See the Supercorals:
https://carbon-sense.com/wp-content/uploads/2017/12/supercoral.png

Corals do not rely on computer models of global temperature to advise them – they read the sea level thermometer which falls and rises as the great ice sheets come and go.

In the warming phase like the one just ending, ice melts, sea levels rise and the reef that houses the corals may get drowned. Corals have two choices – build their reef higher or just float south/inshore and build a new reef (like the Great Barrier Reef) in shallower, cooler water. When islands sink beneath rising oceans, corals may build their own coral atolls as fast as the water rises.

Then when the cold era returns, ice sheets grow, sea levels fall, and the warm era coral reefs get stranded on the new beaches and coastal plains. Usually the process is slow enough to allow the coral polyps to float into deeper warmer water closer to the equator and build another reef.

This eminently sensible policy of “move when you have to” has proved a successful survival policy for the corals for 500 million years.

Humans should copy the corals – “forget the computer climate models but watch real data like actual sea levels and . . . move when you have to.

Manus Island; the real story without the Greens and ALP hysteria

Australia does not want these so-called illegal immigrants to enter the country. The Federal Government supported by the ALP allowed 1000 immigrants a day to enter Australia in 2017 ie, 360,000 immigrants whose background is impossible to check

Manus Island violence, sexual assault and regular bashings of staff by inmates

by Alanah Robinson, whose husband worked at the centre

My previous Facebook post has been taken down. I find it interesting that it has seemingly breeched FB community standards for attacking someone’s race or ethnicity when not once did I do that. Apparently, it’s not OK to criticise violent behaviour. I would like to point out that I immigrated here from a Muslim majority country, I’m not white and spent many years in PNG.

Due to the recent spike in publicity surrounding the Manus Regional Processing Centre, I feel that I must speak up. First of all, whether or not I think that the men in the centre are refugees, asylum seekers, illegal immigrants or little green men from Mars is irrelevant to what I am about to share:

A staff member of the Manus Island detention centre speaks out about sexual assault and physical violence against the local population. Staff  members were subjected to violent physical and sexual assaults on a daily basis. A doctor was almost killed by strangulation.

For some time my husband worked at the centre. He, his former work colleagues, local staff, female and male were subjected to violent assaults and even assaults of a sexual nature on a daily basis; with my husband having been assaulted DOZENS of times.
The staff there were spat at, some being knocked unconscious and beaten whilst incapacitated, another was struck from behind with a metal bar (being partially scalped from the attack), chairs, rocks and poles were all used as weapons against the staff which, included females. There was even a recent incident of a female doctor surviving a strangulation attempt; these are just some of the hundreds of examples…..

There have also been numerous incidents involving the local populace, including children that have had physical attempts of a sexual nature made against them, by men staying in the centre. Despite what some elements within the media and politics would have you believe, they were able to leave and access places outside the centre, including beaches, villages and towns. Further to this almost one thousand of these men have elected to return home to their country of origin. Some of those who chose to remain on the island had to be escorted when leaving the centre as they had been identified as being high risk repeat sexual offenders… LET THAT SINK IN FOR A MINUTE…. This group of men have been caught using lollies and chocolates in an attempt to lure young children into their accommodation, for purposes I would shudder to imagine, with one of these men being recently charged for the sexual assault of a ten year old child.

The men at this centre have been coached by advocates in Australia on how to cultivate an image of who they are, and of their conditions that would best serve their political aims in Australia and abroad. They have for years now deliberately provoked the local population, routinely making threats, throwing rocks and defaming the local culture, race and the PNG nation itself. This type of deliberate and concerted behaviour has naturally elicited a reaction from the people of Manus Island and has helped to achieve the (false) narrative that Manus Island was an unsafe place to live.
My heart is breaking for the Manus Island people, as it is for every staff member, many of whom are Australian and New Zealand citizens that have had to endure sustained verbal and physical abuse.
After hearing so many first-hand accounts, I am grateful for the mental and moral resilience of the men and women who have been tasked with the difficult job of maintaining order within the centre, and hope that they have not suffered in their mental health at having to witness such depravity by these perpetrators.

Knowing now what I do, I could hardly care less about the “plight” of these rapefugees, where they have come from, their culture or religion – my thoughts are only for the people of Manus Island and Australia.
I find it interesting that here in Australia many women leading the protests – determined to put pressure on the government to bring these low life’s here…..why is that? Why are these particular women making excuses for the violence against fellow citizens and ignoring the sexual assault of CHILDREN?!

The men there, in collusion with advocates from Australia, created a Facebook page (thankfully now removed) dedicated to finding out and posting the addresses of staff members’ family homes here in Australia (after viewing this page I was deeply disturbed by its content and its implications). The page contained images, locations and was threatening in nature. With this in mind the expatriate and local population in addition to the staff, all had threats made against their families (wives, girlfriends, parents and children) of a graphic, sexual nature…

So if you are a person who has a good heart and has been deceived into having sympathy for these young men and seek to bring them to Australia, I implore you to make decisions based not on emotion but on the raw tactile situation and make these decisions with your head. We are lucky to live in a safe country – lets keep it that way!

There is deep seated misogyny, violence and an often paedophilic nature that permeates their culture which is at odds with our values, that which we try to uphold, as Australians. We cannot hold them to a standard which they themselves have no desire to be a part of. We are also lucky to live in a country that allows for different ideas and opinions, but in the name of self-preservation, for the sake of ALL our families and children; if you are seeking to import these men, then your right to an opinion is directly endangering the public (particularly the families – myself included) should your ideals be reached.

DNA collection expanding rapidly in Queensland with dire consequences for loyal activists

by Gil Hanrahan in Townsville

The next time you are forced to submit to a roadside breath test and drivers licence check, do yourself a favour and ask the policeman to give you the used breathing apparatus which you placed between your lips.

Otherwise you have just provided a DNA sample to the cops without your knowledge or consent. The cop then surreptitiously correlates your licence data from the hand-held reader with the saliva on the breath tester.

The DNA sample is sent off for testing and the results stored in the vast electronic data banks held in Roma Street police HQ and the Main Roads Department.

Do you trust big brother with your DNA?

The Activist Post has revealed the level of citizen surveillance in China today with this worrying trend emerging in Queensland after the emergence of numerous, roadside infa-red cameras on the Kuranda Range and overhead surveillance cameras such as being erected east of Mareeba on the Kennedy Highway.

Australia has developed a massive facial recognition data bank

Nearly 80 per cent of people over 16 hold a drivers licence and 55 per cent have a passport. More than 600,000 citizens have a photographic gun licence in Queensland.

Justice Minister Michael Keenan told News Corp that passport photos would be accessed(for the data bank) in the coming months and drivers licences would be tapped into after ongoing discussions with the states were finalised.

If talking to you, individual police officers are recording your image and voice on their body cameras (without your consent), the data from which can be stored along with your DNA from the breath or drug saliva test.

Again Australia is the western world’s guinea pig for a massive citizen surveillance system soon to match that of China where innocent people are jailed for having biometrically assessed ‘bad thoughts’

In response to a query about newly installed roadside cameras in North Queensland, the Main Roads Department advised Cairns News:

“The fixed roadside cameras on Flinders Highway, near Woodstock, are Automatic Number Plate Recognition (ANPR) cameras. 

We use this state-of-the-art technology to collect information about travel patterns of vehicles using the road.  

The cameras take an image of all passing vehicles. 

Infra-red cameras and illuminators are used to automatically capture the registration number, date and time of passing vehicles, providing statistical data on travel times, volumes and vehicle types.  

ANPR cameras are strategically placed at key locations to provide:

  • Journey time,
  • Congestion information,
  • Origin and destination information, and
  • To monitor the use of the network by heavy vehicles. 

Collected data helps us understand vehicle movements, plan for future improvements and achieve efficient control and management of the road network. 

The cameras are also used to detect unregistered and uninsured vehicles. 

Only authorised officers, including Queensland Police and TMR Transport Inspectors are able to access information from the ANPR cameras where an offence is suspected.”

The reply did not include the camera’s ability to photograph each occupant of the vehicle in high resolution.

Now we have biometric identification rampant on every street corner and road checkpoint in China and most of Queensland’s main roads.

Liberal Prime Minister Malcolm Turnbull reveals the covert plan to digitalise and record the images of every person living in Australia, a plan Current Affair interviewer Tracey Grimshaw labelled the “New World Order.”

China Accused of Using Biometric Surveillance to Send Thousands to Political Detention Camps

By Nicholas West, Activist Post

As we continue to chart our path down the slippery slope of biometric identification for human beings, we’ve had to speculate about how far we could slide. Well, it appears that China is providing an early example that we would all be wise to take notice of.

It is now a fact that nearly all areas of the modern world have adopted some form of surveillance camera apparatus. Meanwhile, biometric identification technology has advanced to a degree where it’s now possible to merge the two and create not only a pervasive surveillance network, but a nearly real-time identification system that police can use to act upon.

Back in May I highlighted a Russian company called NTechLab that combined CCTV cameras with the vast database of Russian social media giant VKontakte with 300 million users. Using its FindFace system, they announced that they could not only identify people by using facial recognition, but that their system had advanced to integrate emotional identifiers. They claimed a 94% success rate in being able to detect markers that indicate stress, anger or anxiety. The company believes that the merger of these technologies would be a natural fit for surveillance cameras to aid police in pre-crime detection.

Meanwhile, the U.S. has implemented its own pre-crime detection programs in many locations. Additionally, the U.S. was revealed to be one of a number of countries who were using facial recognition billboards to identify political persuasion and manipulate people’s views. It’s called Neuropolitics.

This got the “conspiracy theorists” to wonder what might happen if the biometric surveillance state that was emerging might start using both sides of the technology as a form of political identification and even punishment.

It didn’t take too long for China to confirm that this conspiracy is now a reality.

 

Katter questions boys going to school wearing dresses

“In the yes-no ballot we were lied to. The law recognises no difference between man & woman or man & man. After a period of living together the law imposes all the rights & legalities of ‘marriage’ whether the word is ‘partner’ or ‘de facto’, in the eyes of the law you are ‘married’, whether you like it or not.

“We’ve been told people won’t be discriminated and won’t be punished – they’ve already been persecuted. The Catholic Bishop in Tasmania was charged under the discrimination act. All the legislative amendments in Parliament to protect religious freedom were voted down.

The real controversy here arose out of Victoria where boys were being made to go to school wearing dresses – a move which supposedly would enable them to be more ‘open minded’ about their sexual preferences.

“One thing for absolute certain is that up until 30 years ago, every single person on this planet, for the last 3.5million years, was the result of a heterosexual relationship and when you start putting into an impressionable young boy that he should be a girl’, then I’m not really surprised Australia has some of the highest juvenile male suicide rates in the world.

“For those promoting this behaviour, if you are successful, we Australians have the lowest birth rate on earth, in other words we are a vanishing race.  Come back in a hundred years time and we’ll be gone. When 20 Australians die, they are replaced by only 17 people. There cannot be a more definitive statement on a race of people than that they simply eliminate themselves from the gene pool.

“The health risks and a lot of this behaviour are high and they are real, and this happy clapper stuff out there is like the use of the word “gay”. It’s not real.

“I got Distinctions for English on an essay on Alexander Popes, a famous poem “And then Belinda smiled, and all the world was gay”. The word gay has been arrogated by the homosexual community. The dictionary defined ‘gay’ as beautiful, light, ethereal, attractive, happy. You’ve got to have a really high opinion of yourself describing yourself with those adjectives. Now they want to steal the word marriage. Marriage is a ceremony sanctifying the relationship between a man and a woman.

“I do not advocate anything else except friendship towards same sex couples, some of whom definitely have it as nature not nurture. My attitude towards such people is best exemplified in my History of Australia where I continuously quoted a person who I consider to be one of the wittiest communicators in the country.

“Finally, I saw the rally on the yes-no vote and I could not see a single person who was over 27 years of age. And I recall my days at Qld University when thousands of students were running around at demonstrations waving their Mao Tse-tung books. We now know he was responsible for 48 million deaths. One of the greatest monsters in history. How did my generation get it so wrong?

“We’ve spent the entire year in Parliament fooling around with the yes-no vote, it has no effect whatsoever legally. Wasted time and $122m. The rest of the year has been spent playing party games over ‘citizenship’ (‘let’s see if I can knock off more MPs than you can’). No wonder the vote of the Major Partys is down to the mid to low 30%.” Mr Katter said.

WAS THE SSM POSTAL PLEBISCITE FRAUDED?

Minister Cormann refuses to answer questions regarding the security of the postal ballot

by Lex Stewart, President of Vote Australia

Possibly, Yes. Massive frauds cannot be ruled out yet.

It might be that the officers of the ABS (with staff seconded from the AEC) have conducted the Australian Marriage Law Postal Survey in an honest and accurate manner, so that the Australian public can trust the result.

However it is also possible that massive frauds have been conducted, and that the true result could have been 60% no, and 40% yes.

We do not yet have sufficient information to rule out the possibility that the AMLPS result was massively frauded.

Liberal Finance Minister and Acting Minister for State Mathias Cormann has so far refused to answer questions relating to the bona fides of the Same Sex Marriage plebiscite.

Over the period 26 September to 8 November I asked about 30 questions of the ABS and of the Minister Cormann.

In the absence of answers at this stage, it is impossible to verify the accuracy and integrity of what happened in the AMLPS.

I say this from my perspectives both as President of Vote Australia, and as a Consultant Engineer who does Audits of factories and farms for Workplace Health and Safety and for Food Safety, issuing ‘HACCP’ compliance certificates.

It is almost meaningless if I inspect a factory and find that the food being produced is free of contamination, or that nobody was killed or injured on that day.

It is not just what happens when I am present in a factory or farm that matters. There needs to be in place a robust “quality assurance” program, with transparency and accountability.

Before I can issue a compliance certificate, I need to check the management, methods, training, etc to make sure that hazards have been assessed and that procedures are in place to ensure food safety or human safety for the other 364 days of the year.

The lack of evidence of a robust “quality assurance” program and procedures in the ABS is alarming.

Based on the somewhat limited information to hand so far:

  • Website www.abs.gov.au, notably the two sections with titles:- “Quality & Integrity Statement” and “External Observers
  • The “Fraud Control Plan and fraud control measures”and its related ‘comprehensive risk assessment’ mentioned on www.abs.gov.au have not been made public
  • And this plan and assessment seem not to have been audited by independent experts
  • Unsatisfactory answers by the ABS to some of my 9 questions of 26 September
  • Lack of answers by the ABS to my questions numbered 10 to 22 of 7 and 8 November
  • Lack of answers by the Minister’s office to my 8 questions numbered A to G
  • Apparent anomalies in the mathematical patterns of votes
  • The refusal by Protoviti, the auditor engaged by the ABS, to answer my questions
  • The ABS not making public the Protoviti reports (likely they have done excellent work, but only within the scope of the ‘terms of reference’ set for them by the ABS)
  • The strange phenomenon that Protoviti employees were forced to sign a “non-disclosure” agreement – the sort of thing only relevant to matters of defence and commercial competitiveness re tenders etc
  • The lack of any publicly-available knowledge as to whether the ‘terms of reference’ (i.e. the scope of activities that Protoviti was asked to address) were adequate or had been set too restrictively by the ABS
  • The inherent possibility that ABS computers could have been ‘hacked’ unless the “cyber security controls including extensive use of data encryption” were of a higher standard than that which normally prevails in Canberra public service agencies

New electorate of Cape York looming after welfare vote dominates result

-contributed

At least 4000 voters, solely dependent on government welfare payments to survive, have elected Labor in the seat of Cook, leaving the economic generators of the Far North floundering without a say in government.

To separate the disparate welfare influence from the southern half of the Cook electorate it has been suggested the creation of a new electorate would be more in the interests of maintaining a thriving agricultural and mining industry.

Plans to create a separate state seat of Cape York with a boundary drawn north of Laura will now escalate before the Labor Party is able to further entrench itself with welfare voters.

Patriach of North Qld Bob Katter has been approached by indigenous leaders seeking to form a new electorate of Cape York

One proponent of a new seat is the patriarch of the north, Bob Katter, who said he had been approached in the past by indigenous leaders seeking support for a separate electorate.

There is no farming industry north of Laura, just a handful of viable cattle breeding properties locked in a continuing battle with federal and state environment departments, indigenous land rights encroachments, egregious mining exploration companies and a Labor Party determined to shut down the cattle industry.

During the election campaign, notorious Green lackey, Deputy Premier Jackie Trad, threatened land owners with a new round of Wild Rivers, more water storage restrictions and World Heritage listings over the remaining 50 per cent of the land area of the Peninsula not already languishing under conservation zones.

The world’s toughest vegetation management laws will be introduced under the guidance of two of the ALP’s in-house, rabid greenies, Trad and colleague Dr Stephen Miles.

If either possessed a modicum of political will, no help can be expected from so-called representative bodies such as Agforce or the Natural Resources Management (NRM) quangos which are dependent almost entirely on government funding to survive.

Agforce, the last bastion of the failed Liberal Party will struggle to attract membership or have any direct policy influence on a resurgent Labor Party, driven entirely by the trade union movement and the United Nations Agenda 30 to which Queensland is a signatory.

Spot the clowns: Miles and Trad want to lock up Cape York in a deal with the Greens for allowing Adani mine to go ahead

It will be an entirely political manoeuvre to protect the Far North from the flush of international socialism seeping from the confines of the Queensland south east corner which enjoys state government largesse at a ratio of 10 to one over the north.

It is only the cross bench in State Parliament which now can thwart the UN agenda pushed by the Marxists of the Queensland Labor Party seemingly aided and abetted by the flailing Liberals.

As one commentator quipped, “there are no Nationals in the Queensland parliament, just Liberals wearing Akubras.”

The electorate of Traeger, formerly Mt Isa until the unaccountable Electoral Commission tagged it with this misnomer, was held easily by Robbie Katter with 66 per cent of the primary vote.

In the campaign Katter warned the ALP that one of his first policy initiatives for the new parliament would be to create the new State of North Queensland.

This policy obviously resonated with the adjoining, redrawn electorate of Hill easily taken by his colleague Shane Knuth, in spite of the best attempts of the Electoral Commission to gerrymander Knuth from Parliament.

Hinchinbrook, joining Hill to the south also seems set to go to Katters Australian Party.

North Queenslanders will be assured of a tumultuous ride during this term of parliament, towards attaining their well-deserved, modernised statehood.

At the close of counting on Tuesday night, Labor held Cook with a margin of 2900 preferences.

Rev Fred Nile says people are deserting the Liberal Party in droves; Tim Nicholls just doesn’t get it

 

Queensland Liberal leader Tim Nicholls in a Parliamentary address advised voters to support same sex marriage before the poll

The Queensland Christian lobby gets even with the Liberal Party, watch out Malcolm Turnbull and Bill Shorten

On Monday 27 November 2017, the federal Attorney General gave a press statement concerning the government’s plans to legislate so-called “same sex marriage” by the end of the year, and in which he asserted that:

“There is absolutely no inconsistency between giving effect to marriage equality [sic] and protecting religious freedom. The two are entirely consistent with one another […] I don’t favour and I’m sure the Australian people don’t favour using the result of the marriage survey as a platform to reopen a broader debate about discrimination law.”

Rev Fred Nile MLC, NSW warns Malcolm Turnbull and the Liberals are manipulating the Same Sex Marriage results that will not protect freedom of religious beliefs

Rev Fred Nile MLC makes the following comments:

  • “The Turnbull government’s cynical manipulation of the results of the survey illustrates a betrayal of the Australian public.”
  • “What people of conscience fear is not that their beliefs will be interfered with, they fear being prevented from living their lives according to those beliefs.”
  • “Senator Brandis is a senior legal practitioner. He knows very well that the proposed legislation will change social norms and therefore the perception of acceptable conduct, for both individuals and business.”
  • “Pretending to be oblivious to what we have been witnessing overseas is an insult to everyone, no matter how they voted in the survey.”
  • “Senator Brandis has opened the floodgates to litigation, or the threats of litigation, that will restrict associational and expressive freedoms. That’s not what the people of Australia voted on in the marriage survey.”
  • “There has been no better proof that the Coalition government has betrayed its small government and freedom oriented philosophies. It is not surprising that its voters are deserting the Liberal National parties in droves.”
