Former CIA Officer: Christchurch Shooting Smells like a ‘False Flag’

Former CIA officer Robert David Steele warns that the Christchurch mosque shooting bears the hallmarks of a classic ‘false flag’ operation.

In an interview with Tehran Times, Steele claims the shooting was orchestrated by the shadow government as part of a plan to disarm the general population and ignite World War III.
- You are well known as a former spy, and you have also said many times on the public record that you managed a false flag operation for the Central Intelligence Agency (CIA). You have also written three books and two chapters on specific false flag operations – False Flag Attacks – Tool of the Deep State,9/11 Truth, Sandy Hook Truth, Orlando Atrocity, andParis 11/13. In brief, what is a false flag attack?
- The term originated in maritime warfare, where pirates as well as countries such as Spain and France, would fly the flag of their prey so they could sail closer and mount a surprise attack. The term today means nothing more or less than “not as it appears.” This means that the event did not happen the way the government says it did; it was not carried out for the reasons the government says it was; and both the attacker and the victims are not as they appear. In the USA most attackers are patsies, some mind-controlled, and most victims are crisis actors or paid locals who are then sworn to secrecy using national security warrants that threaten them with life in prison if they tell the truth about the event.
- The attack on a mosque in New Zealand by an alleged white supremacist appears to have many questionable aspects. In broad terms, what do you think happened?
- A careful analysis of all available information, including a complete technical as well as military analytic review of the full video tape, suggests that this was a false flag event. We need Muslim and US white nationalist investigators on the ground to determine if anyone actually died, all indications are that no one died, this appears to have been a completely staged event managed by the Mossad in complicity with corrupt New Zealand police and national authorities, and corrupt Freemasons. Let me point out that most Freemasons are honest decent people. I believe the Chinese Freemasons particularly are intent on the future of Freemasonry to be about the good of all, and this apparent crime against humanity by New Zealand Freemasons should see them cast out of the international order.
- Before I ask for specific reasons why you challenge the official narrative – that a lone white man killed at least fifty Muslims and wounded at least 50 more mostly Muslims – let me ask about motive. Assuming you are correct and this was a staged event followed by immediate global censorship to block common sense challenges, what was the purpose of this event?
- I am so glad you asked that, because my answer could help to unite Muslims everywhere with white nationalists in the USA and perhaps in other countries. This event was designed with two objectives. The first is to demonize white nationalists who support President Donald Trump, and to set the stage for disarming them in violation of the US Constitution by using a flood of new “red flag” laws that the Deep State is attempting to push through in the USA. Just as the Zionists assassinated John F. Kennedy Junior to clear the way for Hillary Clinton to buy her Senate seat in New York, they are seeking here to help the Democrats defeat President Trump in 2020. My colleague Scott Bennett, a former US Army psychological warfare officer, has published a useful analysis of objectives and tactics for this event.
In New Zealand, where the government is a mix of good – criticizing Zionist Israel – and bad – seeking to confiscate weapons – this false flag event is clearly being used as a deception to justify the disarming of the public.
The second objective is to set the stage for World War III. I will predict right now that at least two Muslim mind-control patsies will murder – for real – at least 20 kindergarten children in the USA immediately before Syria launches its promised attack to remove the Zionists from the Golan Heights where oil has been discovered. The Zionists are desperate to keep the Golan Heights and to draw the USA into a Middle Eastern general war. False flag operations as well as the bribery and blackmail of most US Members of Congress and key Senior Executive Service officials is how they get their way.
Let me say very clearly that I believe that this event, for the first time in modern history, gives white nationalists in the USA, and Muslims world-wide, a foundation for coming together against Zionist Israel. I want to see a Muslim investigative team in New Zealand immediately, and I want the exposure of this atrocity to bring down the government of New Zealand and force President Donald Trump to honor his campaign promise to fully disclose the who, how, what, and why of 9/11, which will end the reign of terror by Zionists in the USA. If invited, I would be honored to donate my time and join the team, I am quite certain I can extract the truth from the alleged shooter within 24 hours. Sadly, I would not be surprised to see the alleged shooter die in the next few days, allegedly by his own hand, to silence him forever.
- What is a “red flag” law?
- Thank you for asking. A “red flag” law is a very unconstitutional law that is being passed by US states that do not believe in the US Constitution and the right to bear arms. In Maryland a man was assassinated by police recently when they went to confiscate his weapons without notice. A red flag law allows anyone – someone you owe money to, for example – to tell the police that they feel “threatened” by you, and this – without due process, without a judge, without a hearing – allows the police to demand your guns. If someone wanted to assassinate me, arranging for a “red flag” report so that I am disarmed first by the police, without actual just cause, would be the perfect preamble.
- Isn’t it far-fetched to think that Muslims themselves would participate in a false flag event desecrating their own mosque?
- You raise a very important point, and this is one of the reasons I want a Muslim investigative team on the ground as soon as possible. In my experience most Muslims are very eager to accommodate the authorities and demonstrate that they have assimilated and are loyal to their adopted country. I strongly suspect the participants were given incentives they could not refuse and their participation was demanded as a condition of their continuing to enjoy unencumbered residency in New Zealand.
- List for us the anomalies – the clear indications that this was a false flag event.
- My list is drawn from both my own viewing of the movie, which is clearly full of special effects such as bullet casings that “disappear” and do not hit the ground, and the works of Gordon Duff, Kevin Barrett, James Fetzer as well as Baldrmedia and William Craddick. I will divide my list into event anomalies and contextual anomalies.
- These are clearly toy guns firing air and not ejecting casings or firing real bullets. In the video the bullet casings were added after the fact as a special effect.
- With the exception of the alleged dead by the front door, who appear to have been staged beforehand, none of those allegedly killed in the video fall in spastic shock as real wounded do, and there are no blood splatters. Some of those lying dead are not actually shot in the video. Indeed, the shooter exits the mosque and then returns, this time we see some rather amateurish blood evidence, as if he had to leave so the special effects crew could come in.
- The piles of bodies appear to have been there prior to the gunman entering. They are all in very unnatural positions, and interestingly, not a single one is face up, useful if you want to conceal all their identities.
- Shots fired from a shotgun inside the car do not blow out the front windshield.
- All traffic is blocked from the street during the event, as if the police had roadblocks set up.
- The police do not arrive officially until 36 minutes after the first shot, never mind that their nearest station is two minutes away from the first mosque.
- The video shows clear signs of having been technically altered, including the addition of bullet casings, after the fact, never mind the reality that the shooter was quickly arrested and had no time to edit anything.
- The individual either is not who they say he is, or he is much older than they claim. Gordon Duff has documented his family history and it leads back to Zionist Israel in multiple ways.
- The individual received an “inheritance” when he lost his family, a common Mossad technique for picking up promising orphaned males for mind-control projects, and spent years traveling including North Korea, China, Afghanistan, Pakistan, Turkey, and Syria and in training in Zionist Israel.
- The shooter allegedly drove past at least two police stations enroute from the first to the second mosque.
- Video exists of at least two others shooters, and evidence exists of at least four women in a tour group that appear to have been a Mossad support cell.
- Government claims that this individual was not on their radar are a clear lie. He was a known shooter in the Brice Rifle Club catering to military shooters and is known to have visited countries of concern including North Korea.
- He is known by Turkey to have entered that country intent on carry out an assassination or some form of terror attack. Alone among all Muslim nations, Turkey has a team on the way to New Zealand where I expect they will be denied access to the prisoner and the mosques in fear of their quickly seeing this for what it is – a false flag provocation.
- The government of New Zealand has entered into a censorship panic, and in the USA the Zionist- controlled social media notably Facebook and Twitter, are actively censoring the video particularly, and skeptical comments generally. The video, intended by its originators to defame white nationalists and anger Muslims, has clearly become a liability because watching it one is quickly convinced this is a false flag event – not what the government claims it to be.
If 50 people prove to be dead and another 50 wounded, which I do not believe, this makes it certain that there were multiple shooters and raises the possibility of dead being brought in from morgues around the country to build up the body count. One man with several magazines cannot, under any possible circumstances, do the claimed damages.
Where is Mossad?
Letter to the editor
Who are the shadowy figures behind this massacre?
Good question. By way of answer, I will ask who benefits(?) and give a short piece of relevant US history. In June, 1968, Robert F. Kennedy was assassinated in Los Angeles. His alleged assassin, Sirhan Sirhan, was a Palestinian, who has never given any evidence that he knows what he allegedly did or why he did it. Sirhan seems to have been a product of a military or intelligence service mind control program.
Israel did not like JFK, who opposed Israel acquiring the atomic bomb in the 1960s. Israel did not want another Kennedy to be US President. With Sirhan being blamed for the killing of RFK, Israel got a two-fer. 1. RFK was eliminated, and 2. the murder was blamed on a Palestinian to sway American public opinion against the Palestinians.
At the time of the murder of Robert Kennedy there were local reports in the news in Los Angeles of other figures seen escorting Sirhan into the hotel by the back door shortly before the assassination. As well, Sirhan was in front of Kennedy, but he was shot from the rear. Of course, these items were quickly suppressed and not included in any national coverage of the event.
The gun grabbers, those who want to restrict free speech on immigration policies, and those who want to demonize ethnic Europeans benefit from this attack in New Zealand.

The FBI announced ‘case closed’ this past Tuesday on the October 2017 Las Vegas shooting, which left 58 people dead and over 800 injured. They produced a 3-page report that did not identify a motive or establish any forensic connection between the alleged weapons and any of the victims. Indeed, there has been no forensic proof presented by either the Las Vegas police or the FBI that the alleged killer Stephen Paddock was, in fact the killer. (identical modus operandi to Port Arthur)
Noticeably missing from the report was any discussion of alleged killer Stephen Paddock’s chest wound or any evidence that the window in room 35-135 was broken before or during the attack.
Over 100 FBI agents were brought in from around the country to produce this 3-page report, that was even less detailed than the report produced by the Las Vegas Metro Police Department, which wrapped up its own investigation last August. Special Agent Aaron Rouse in charge of the Las Vegas Division of the FBI made a televised statement laden with comforting neurolinguistic programming phrases intended to reassure listeners but peppered with strange slips.
YouTuber John E. Hoover, whose channel has been dedicated solely to this historic case takes Rouse to task for the many questions that remain unanswered, such as the three helicopters seen on FlightRadar24 flying overhead of the attacks, not accounted for and not belonging to either the LVMPD or the two known services that fly out of the nearby airport. Hoover asks whether the time has come for a Congressional inquiry.

Magazine confiscation starting in New Jersey. Similar events coming soon to a town near you. Queensland Labor Government starting with ammunition restrictions in 2019
(Natural News) A New Jersey law that makes it a felony to possess a gun magazine capable of holding over 10 rounds of ammunition is now active. This wildly unconstitutional law instantly criminalizes hundreds of thousands of New Jersey citizens who legally acquired normal capacity firearms magazines — which include 17-round pistol magazines and 30-round rifle magazines — as tools of self-defense against the very same violent criminals that are protected by the Democrats who passed the gun magazine ban.
Now, the New Jersey State Police have told Breitbart News they won’t rule out “house-to-house enforcement” of the new magazine ban, meaning they plan to conduct house-to-house arrests and gun magazine confiscations. These Nazi-style anti-gun operations will, of course, be carried out at gunpoint, further underscoring the entire purpose of the Second Amendment and the need for citizens to arm themselves with 30-round magazines to defend against government tyranny.
“Breitbart News contacted New Jersey State Police on Monday to ask how they planned to enforce the newly enacted ban,” reports Breitbart.com. “The NJ State Police refused to rule out house-to-house checks. Rather, they responded: ‘We do not discuss enforcement strategies.’”
The very reason citizens need 30-round magazines is because the government wants to use coercion and the threat of violence to take away their legally-acquired firearms and magazines. If citizens surrender 30-round magazines, the next step will be New Jersey banning all magazines, followed by the banning of all semi-automatic firearms. Almost overnight, citizens of New Jersey will find themselves living under an authoritarian regime of pure tyranny and lawlessness… with no means to defend themselves against the state, which will then have a monopoly on effective firearms.
This is a repeat of Nazi Germany, which disarmed the Jews before mass murdering three million of them. It’s so much easier to murder people, after all, when the government disarms them first. And anyone going along with the disarmament is signing their own death warrant.
The purpose of the magazine ban is to make sure citizens can’t shoot back when the authoritarian government comes to take ALL their guns
The entire purpose of the gun magazine ban, of course, is to make sure that innocent citizens are unable to shoot back when the government sends gun confiscation teams on door-to-door raids, gunning down citizens and taking their firearms by force. Anyone who knows history will immediately realize that New Jersey is walking down the path of Stalinist Russia or Hitler’s Germany, weaponizing the power of corrupt government to disarm the very people that government will later target for mass arrests and mass murder.
Have no illusions: The aim of all Leftists in government is the establish an authoritarian government regime that holds a monopoly over all firepower, ruling over disarmed citizens who are taxed to death, silenced by the tech giants and criminalized for seeking to defend their own nation against tyranny. This will be combined with open borders policies that flood the nation with violent criminal illegal aliens who will all be granted absolute legal immunity from their crimes, even while American citizens are arrested and imprisoned for merely exercising their Second Amendment rights.

The despicable and persistent hounding of Wendy Scurr by government enforcers terrified this hero and most other credible eye witness who publicly exposed the cover-up which made intellectually challenged Martin Bryant the patsy for the shooting at Port Arthur 28th April 1996.
The following article published in Gumshoe News by Malcolm Hughes is a befitting tribute to a great Australian taking on Goliath’s lies and relentless persecution of Wendy. Living in total fear this witness could not achieve her goal of bringing John Howard and his cartel to justice….
A courageous Australian passes —vale Wendy Scurr
Today Australians have lost a brave, patriotic lady, Mrs Wendy Scurr. We repost Mal’s article from The Great Australians: Wendy Scurr in 2016.
by Malcolm R Hughes (4 December, 2016)
This great Australian, Wendy Scurr, became an unplanned heroine during and after the Port Arthur Massacre in 1996. For those who have not previously seen the purposely lost word “heroine,” the meaning is female hero.
Wendy is happily married to Graeme Scurr and they reside on the mainland of Australia. Why the mainland? Because they were driven out of their home state of Tasmania. Why driven out ? For doing the right thing. You know how it goes these days – but Wendy was ahead of her time, having stuck up for the truth about Port Arthur 20 years ago.
The Port Arthur Massacre was a Federal and Tasmanian government-planned event whereby several people were to be shot dead, at the Port Arthur Historic Site on the island state of Tasmania in Australia.
The reasoning behind this plan (I think) was that the population would then accept the Commonwealth Government’s implementation of the United Nations wish to disarm this part of the World’s public. (See Terry Shulze’s 3-part article here.)
Unfortunately, to fulfill this plan, a dupe was required. Martin Bryant, an intellectually handicapped man, was framed as the gunman and has, until now been imprisoned for 20 years. The killing of 35 people took place on April 28, 1996.
It is now widely accepted that Bryant did not shoot anyone, and could not have been the gunman.
The most evil part of the situation is that many politicians, public servants, lawyers and investigative bodies, have had the proof of this thrust in their faces but will not do anything to rectify the situation.
Wendy Scurr, a survivor of that April 28, 1996 massacre, had been an ambulance driver for several years and a first-aid instructor. Very selfless occupations.
Wendy was a tour guide for the Port Arthur Historic Site until after the massacre, when, owing to events that took place that day, she like others were overtaken by post trauma stress disorder or P.T.S.D.
During the killings, Wendy was nearly hit by a bullet fired from the cafe as she went to investigate the noise coming from within. She had heard the whiz of the bullet right past her but did not realise what it was. Upon visiting the scene two days later, husband Graeme pointed out the hole in the window that indicated what a near miss she had had.
After the tremendous amount of shooting in the historic site’s café, it was Wendy who phoned the police to report the noise – this was at 1.32pm on that infamous Sunday. She had to hold the telephone outside of the office so the person on the receiving end of the call would believe that shots were being fired.
Once the killer had left the Broad Arrow Café (remember: it’s not Martin Bryant as we were brainwashed to believe), Wendy then entered to check on and help the victims. Although she did not see it – no mirror there — she became covered with blood and human tissue. The worst anxiety for all the survivors was not knowing if the gunman was going to return.
She, along with the remaining hundreds of people had to continue in a stressful state as police did not arrive in sufficient numbers until six hours after the first report of the shootings to police headquarters. That deliberate delay was, of course, planned, and is unforgivable.
Months after, Wendy had to cope with a letter she received from the DPP (Director of Public Prosecutions of Tasmania, Damian Bugg) telling her that she would not be required in court to give evidence. That was despite her having been one of the main witnesses to the Port Arthur massacre!
Wendy soon realised the event had been a Federal and State conspiracy. Thus she travelled the east coast of Australia lecturing on her experiences and that of co-workers on the day of the massacre.
By this time, private investigating citizens had unearthed many troubling events of that day and these were spoken about by these investigators at Wendy’s talks. One who shared the podium with her was retired Victorian cop Andrew MacGregor.
Wendy’s contact with a later generation of Aussies has manly been by Youtube. One of her Youtube videos has had 166,000 hits. She is a very loved and admired figure – and a modest one.
Wendy wanted the public to know what really happened on Sunday 28th April, 1996 and to force the release from custody of the entirely innocent man, Martin Bryant.
For this, she was terrorised in her home by the Tasmanian Police to such an extent that the Scurrs were forced to sell up their property and move. She still has health and mental problems related to that pre-planned event.
When “the people” take no notice of what good people like Wendy Scurr tell us, and allow evil employees in Government to get away with their perverted schemes such as the Port Arthur massacre, more of the same will follow. Next time, and there will be many other next times, unless the vile evil-doers are stopped, you and your family members may be the victims either directly or as collateral damage.
I see Wendy as a very courageous woman who deserved a better fate than that dished up by Australian society. It takes an exceptionally brave person to take a stand against the Government and its agents, knowing that at any time, they may arrest you on false charges, to have you thrown in jail.
I consider Wendy Scurr a truly great Australian and am hoping that the Australian public will give Wendy the recognition that she so justly deserves, at some time in the near future.
Port Arthur false flag did the damage
In 1929, the Soviet Union established gun control. From 1929 to 1953, about 20 million dissidents, unable to defend themselves, were rounded up and exterminated.
In 1911, Turkey established gun control. From 1915 to 1917, 1.5 million Armenians, unable to defend themselves, were rounded up and exterminated.
Germany established gun control in 1938 and from 1939 to 1945, a total of 13 million Jews and others who were unable to defend themselves were rounded up and exterminated.
China established gun control in 1935. From 1948 to 1952, 20 million political dissidents, unable to defend themselves were rounded up and exterminated.
Guatemala established gun control in 1964. From 1964 to 1981, 100,000 Mayan Indians, unable to defend themselves, were rounded up and exterminated.
Uganda established gun control in 1970. From 1971 to 1979, 300,000 Christians, unable to defend themselves, were rounded up and exterminated.
Cambodia established gun control in 1956. From 1975 to 1977, one million educated people, unable to defend themselves, were rounded up and exterminated.
56 million defenseless people rounded up and exterminated in the 20th Century because of gun control:
You won’t see this data on the evening news, or hear politicians disseminating this information.
Guns in the hands of honest citizens save lives and property and, yes, gun-control laws adversely affect only the law-abiding citizens.
Take note fellow Australians, before it’s too late!
The next time someone talks in favor of gun control, please remind them of this history lesson.
With guns, we are “citizens”. Without them, we are “subjects”.
During WWII the Japanese decided not to invade America because they knew most Americans were ARMED!
If you value your freedom, please spread this message to all of your friends.

Port Arthur – HOW AUSTRALIANS WERE DISARMED BY A FALSE FLAG “MASSACRE”
26 Coincidences Which the Media and Officials Cannot and Do Not Want to Explain at Port Arthur – Can you explain them?
- Martin Bryant got the Tasmanian authorities to have a 22-body refrigerated morgue truck available for his handiwork.Specially built and the only one in Australia, advertised for sale afterwards. YEAH RIGHT ! read YEAH RIGHT after each point .
2 – The actual advertisement:
Vehicle for Sale. Genuine Enquiries only. Yellow Chevrolet 350 V8 truck with refrigerated body, holds 22, this vehicle was primarily used as the disaster vehicle in the Port Arthur Massacre. This vehicle is currently for sale and all reasonable offers will be considered. The vehicle has value as not only a refrigerated unit for body removal, it is the only one of its kind in the entire country. The memorabilia value of it for anyone making a movie/series or writing a book on Port Arthur is limitless. Not only would the purchaser be getting the disaster vehicle, but the whole Port Arthur Story would be given as well.This vehicle is currently for sale and all REASONABLE OFFERS will be considered.
- Nelson Brothers in Victoria had special big-job embalming equipment “manufactured ready for the incident.” Why did the government specially order such beforehand? YEAH RIGHT !
- Martin Bryant organised for senior Port Arthur staff to go away on a Work Seminar so they wouldn’t get hurt. YEAH RIGHT !
- He managed to get Royal Hobart Hospital to have their Emergency Plan in place two days before the massacre so things would run smoothly. YEAH RIGHT !
- He managed to get Hobart Hospital to have a Trauma Seminar timed to end at the exact moment he started shooting so they could patch up all the wounded quickly.
- He arranged for helicopter pilots – usually unavailable – to be available that Sunday.
- He managed to kill the Martins of Seascape with a firearm when he was at a service station 57 kilometres away.
- He decoyed the local police to be at the opposite end of the peninsula at the exact moment the shooting began.
- He managed to fool staff at the Historic Site into believing he arrived at 1.15pm when in fact he was there at 12.45pm.
- He managed not to look like himself – as if wearing a woman’s wig – when being filmed in the car park by tourists.
- He wore a face mask making his face look pockmarked when shooting in the cafe.
- He arranged for a suspect black van to appear outside the Broad Arrow Cafe afterwards so people wouldn’t think it was him who did it.
- He managed to get Sally Martin to run around Seascape naked that afternoon and make it appear she had been killed that morning.
- He managed to shoot a rifle from upstairs at Seascape when he was downstairs talking to police on the phone.
- He had infrared night vision eyes.
- He managed to shoot from two Seascape buildings at once during the night of the siege.
- He managed to stay in a heavily burning building shooting and yelling at police and get severe burns only on his back.
- He managed to have the world press to have a convention in Hobart on the 30th April so there were plenty of reporters on hand so he would get better than usual media coverage.
- He managed to make it appear ASIO was behind the incident.
- He managed to make it appear Tasmania Police had fabricated and tampered with evidence.
- He managed to get the Tasmanian DPP lie to the Court about his activities.
- He arranged for the media nationwide to display his photo to witnesses to influence them; and to print false stories about him and get Channel Nine To fabricate a video – all while in custody.
- He fired two shots at 6.30pm at Port Arthur while he was under siege by police at Seascape. And fired from the right hip by a left hander. 4 more like him and we could take over the entire world.
- If you believe the official version, his marksmanship was fantastic – twenty head shots, from the right hip, in 90 seconds!A movement of 3 degrees would have missed at 3 -4 meters.
- There are only about 100 shooters that good (better than Olympians) in the world.
All done by an intellectually handicapped young man with an IQ of 66 and the mental age of an eleven year old boy ? The whole event was planned and announced in Hansard 2 years earlier – Why – to disarms us. Bryant was never given a proper trial. Prime Minister Johhny Coward prevented it! All previously arranged. He should replace Martin Bryant in jail!

Opposition Leader Bill Shorten has written to Prime Minister Malcolm Turnbull asking for him to intervene before Tasmania’s re-elected Liberal Government frees up the State’s gun laws.
Two days before the Tasmania election, the Liberals dropped a grenade – that if they won government they would amend the tough and ineffective laws to allow farmers and sporting shooters access to semi-auto rifles and shotguns.
However the Liberal Government had been in secret discussions with farming groups and the shooting lobby for six weeks prior to the election.
The glaring elephant in the room, is the bona fides of the Port Arthur massacre. The people’s court after dissecting the overwhelming evidence to the contrary has decided Martin Bryant did not shoot any person at the Broad Arrow Café – he was miles away at the time of the shooting. His mother and two other witnesses who knew Martin confirmed this fact with investigators yet none was called to give evidence to Tasmania Police.
The so-called National Firearms Agreement has no effect in law, it is only an agreement between the States because the Commonwealth cannot legislate firearms law for the States.
If any State wishes to amend their respective gun laws they can do so with impunity. When the Queensland National Party Government in 1997 said it would not enact the pre-packaged gun laws presented by the Federal Government, PM John Howard threatened to withhold Commonwealth money from the State.
The Nationals leader Rob (Bubbles) Borbidge buckled and pushed the new laws through Parliament.
Shorten, soon to be deposed by Anthony Albanese, is barking up the wrong tree, because the Tasmania Liberals can tell him to go to hell where he belongs.
Likewise Turnbull would be a fool to intervene, but in any case there is nothing he can do. Premier Will Hodgman needs all the support he can get. Cairns News urges Tasmanian readers to phone Will Hodgman and give him support over the proposed changes to the gun laws.
He should take notice because it was the gun lobby which got his government over the line.
Yesterday, after the usual pressure from the ABC, Mr Hodgman said the amendments would be put before a committee to examine the effects and if they would contravene the national agreement.
The Tasmanian Liberal Party has won another four-year term, holding government after Saturday’s election.
The best news emanating post-election is the stunning loss of two Greens seats, leaving a lone member. Greens leader of herself, Cassy O’Connor is a racist zealot and after hearing her losing speech on Saturday night, one could be forgiven for thinking she is a few sheep short in the pen.
O’Connor, resplendent with arm tattoos looking like a spokesman for the local chapter of Hells Angels, moaned-on how she wanted to give all of Tasmania to the blackfellas. Poor blackfella me was the gist of her tirade, after which she attracted three clappers from the mildly attentive Greens throng assembled at the electoral commission headquarters.
Miss O’Connor probably doesn’t know that Trugannini was the last, real indigenous woman to live in Tasmania. She died in 1876. There have been a few imposters and interlopers since but history has it; there were no Tasmanian blackfellas alive after 1876.
Like all of Miss O’Connor’s diatribe, this part remains a mystery as to which blackfellas she wanted to give Tasmania.
Predictably, after losing 28 straight opinion polls embattled Prime Minister Malcolm Turnbull has claimed some of the credit.
He has to gain some accolades from somewhere, self-aggrandisement or not.
Not all election analysists have lost sight of the bolstering effect of the shooter’s vote which gave the Liberals victory.
Two days before the election a smart operator dropped a grenade; the Libs would overhaul the ineffective and costly gun laws adopted by the apple isle after Martin Bryant was framed for the Port Arthur massacre in 1996.
The mainland Liberals and Labor had better take a lesson from this most astute Premier and the gun lobby. Will Hodgman is a presentable, seemingly honest and smart politician the likes of which are sadly lacking in every other state.
We won’t go near federal parliament.
The rest is history.
