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.

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.

Barnaby Joyce and Steven Ciobo get Chinese government funds for India’s Adani coal mine

22 November 2017: Bob Katter MP, Federal Member for Kennedy,  is furious former Deputy Prime Minister Barnaby Joyce took part in selling Adani to China after news the Adani Group is close to securing finance for its coal mine and railway track in coming weeks with Chinese state-owned enterprises, banks, and export credit agencies backing the venture.

Media reports a director of Adani Mining said just days ago they would no longer need funding from Northern Australia Infrastructure Facility (NAIF) and a formal announcement of a financial close was imminent. It was reported in The Australian on Nov 14th Former Deputy Prime Minister Barnaby Joyce and Trade Minister Steven Ciobo wrote to top Chinese officials to vouch for Indian giant Adani. The report said they sent a letter to the chairman of China’s powerful National Development and Reform Commission saying they welcomed “foreign lending to support the development of major projects in Australia”.

Katter calls Liberals Barnaby Joyce and Steven Ciobo traitors for brokering Chinese Government funds to help Adani open Australia’s largest coal mine creating thousands of Chinese jobs in Central Queensland

“If you sell your country out, then you’re a traitor,” Mr Katter said.

It was also reported Chinese enterprises and export credit agencies invariably require that materials for key infrastructure are sourced from China, effectively shifting work out of Australia and undermining Adani’s claims its project will create many thousands of additional jobs for Queensland.

“Half Australia’s coal reserves will be controlled by whoever owns that railway line. It was not good enough for the ALP and  LNP to sell our coal seam gas, now worth $25b a year.  This is enough money to restore our outpatients at our hospitals, and give every pensioner and young families 10 grand each and every year.

“We sold the gas for 6 cents a unit we are now buying it back for $16 a unit – our own Australian gas. And now we are going to do the same thing with coal.

“Does anyone think a spineless Government in Canberra are going to stand up to the Chinese Government when they take over all of our unexploited coal reserves? The Greenies think they will stand up to that? Do they think the  spineless ALP Government will stand up against the Chinese Government? No, they won’t.

“This will go down as the biggest sell out in our country in Australian history, and will let all the world know that Former Deputy Prime Minister Barnaby Joyce and LNP PM Malcolm Turnbull will go down in the history of Australia in infamy,” Mr Katter said.

Union to push for determined Mareeba meat workers

A determined display of solidarity among a large number of Mareeba residents who want jobs at the local Steggles chicken factory was the outcome of a packed public meeting on Monday night.

More than 160 previous and prospective employees demanded they be employed in preference to the large number of 417 Holiday Visa and 457 Temporary Work (Skilled) workers employed at the factory.

Organised by the Australian Meat Industry Employees Union Assistant Secretary Ian McLauchlan and  Mareeba AMIEU delegate Fred Brunjes the rally was addressed by the  General Secretary of the Queensland Council of Unions, Ros McLennan.

Steggles, owned by Sydney company Baiada, was accused by workers of employing temporary visa workers in preference to locals.

Mr McLauchlan told the meeting that the large roll-up at the racecourse venue was ample proof Mareeba people wanted to work.

More than 50 potential employees lined up to fill out Steggles work application forms which would be handed to the company’s HR department at the Mareeba plant.

Solidarity among Mareeba workers demanding an end to 457 visa workers taking their jobs at the local Steggles chicken abattoir. front: Ros McLennan, Secretary Qld Council of Unions; Ian McLauchlan ,Assistant Secretary AMIEU; Fred Brunjes, local AMIEU delegate; Member for Cook, Billy Gordon

“We are fair dinkum, we want to work but local people who hand in applications at the security gate say the forms never make it to the office,” Mr McLauchlan claimed.

“Somehow they get lost between the gate and the HR department.”

The Member for Kennedy, Bob Katter said he has been long opposed to the 200,000 overseas workers arriving in Australia every year on 457 visas.

“‘They are taking our jobs and undermining our pay and conditions,” Mr Katter said, apologising for not attending, due to commitments in Parliament.

Addressing the Steggles situation, he asked: “Who will you take as a worker, the bloke overseas used to working for $5 a day and 60 hour week and has a deportation order at your discretion?; or would you take an Australian who you have to pay a fair days pay for a fair days work?”

Member for Cook Billy Gordon told the meeting he remembered the problems of getting a job when he was a young man growing up in the Mareeba area.

“I picked mangoes at local farms and did other farm jobs years ago working around the area and being a young Blackfella in those days it was hard to get work when I was just out of school,” Mr Gordon said.

“It inspires me at the turnout here tonight with people standing up for families.

“There is 25 per cent youth unemployment here and it irks me there are companies out there not prepared to do the right thing by the community.”

Mr McLauchlan said Steggles job application forms were available at Mr Gordon’s office and urged applicants to fill them out then hand them to AMIEU delegate Fred Brunjes.

Mareeba Shire Council had been invited to the meeting, but Mr McLauchlan said he was unaware of any representatives in attendance.

He said Baiada senior management had agreed to meet with the union in Brisbane on Thursday to sort out the issues.

CFA under threat from Vic Premier’s union thugs

Labor Premier Daniel Andrews on a rare visit to earth to support CFA union stand over grubs

What a political gift for Turnbull, thanks in no small way to Tony Abbott. I caught a glimpse of Shorten’s press conference earlier today. Shorten is showing definite signs of election campaign fatigue.

He is very uncomfortable when asked questions about his mate Andrews (Vic premier} deal that will see the hard left wing secretary of the united firefighters union, Peter Marshall, a self confessed communist gain absolute control over the 60,000 volunteer firefighters in Victoria.

It is time for Turnbull to up the anti and expose Shortens well documented corrupt union past exposed by Tony Abbott’s trade union royal commission. I wait in hope…

Please share, particularly if you live, or have family/friends that live in Victoria.

Bob Kernohan.

Quoted from Andrews Mein Kampf II .. “This dispute ends today,’’ Mr Andrews said, brushing aside ­criticism from lawyers, the CFA, volunteers and the opposition of the government’s boots-and-all approach.

Unions campaign to pad the electoral roll

This story was posted on News Ltd web site May 13, 2016:

Unions will step up their election campaigning this weekend, making 20,000 telephone calls to swinging voters in marginal seats.

The two-day telethon will involve 600 ACTU volunteers asking voters about their issues of concern and urging them to put the Liberals last on July 2.

“We want to see Australians elect a government that will put their interests first, create jobs, and fund health and education with revenue from a fair and equitable tax system,” ACTU secretary Dave Oliver said in a statement.

This excerpt from a letter to Cairns News places a different slant on the story above:

At the risk of exposing my ignorance, I am not sure how the unions could reliably know who is and isn’t currently a swinging voter in a marginal seat sufficient to “telephone” them.

The sceptic in me immediately wondered if this was a cover story (above)for a secret plan that relies on the telephone campaign to identify occupancy at addresses known to have changed hands sufficiently recently. Real estate activity here in Forest Hill (Melbourne) has been epic in the past two years thanks to Chinese interest in Australian property. It must have generated hundreds of title transfers per electorate only recently, potentially representing thousands of electors who have died or moved away while their names remain on the roll.

Could the union telephone campaign be exploiting the latency arising from transfers of titles in the marginal seats to validate name of electors for impersonation at polling places on 2 July? With electoral laws as fraud-friendly as they are and contests so nail-bitingly close, anyone not constrained by law would have to think themselves fools not to try.”

Bob Katter addresses the rally against 457 overseas visas

I marched in a rally to end fly-in fly-out mining and 457 overseas visas and to support our rural and regional communities. Local jobs for Australians means money spent in our local communities. Here is my speech on video:

Turnbull hands ship building contract offshore

Off Shore Galore with Turnbull

PM Malcolm Turnbull

PM Turnbull

Prime Minister Malcolm Turnbull has failed his first serious test of political leadership by turning his back on Australian shipbuilders and placing an order for a new Australian icebreaker offshore.

Just a day after the ASC shipyard in Adelaide announced its intention to lay off another 45 workers, and following intensive lobbying for new shipbuilding orders by the South Australian Government, Mr Turnbull has revealed his manufacturing industry policy is no better than Tony Abbott’s.

“This is proof that the new Prime Minister doesn’t understand the crisis that the Coalition has created in the shipbuilding industry,” said Glenn Thompson, Assistant National secretary of the Australian Manufacturing Workers’ Union (AMWU).

“It’s no use blaming Labor for the state of shipbuilding in Australia. This Government has had an opportunity to build the icebreaker here and has failed to do so,” Mr Thompson said.

“The last Australian icebreaker was built for the Antarctic Division by the Forgacs yard in Newcastle and there is no reason why Australian industry could not complete another similar vessel,” he said. “Except that the Coalition Government excluded Australian companies from taking part in the tender process.”

Mr Thompson said the shipbuilding industry was in crisis because its only customer was the Federal Government and this decision shows the Turnbull Government was as short sighted as its predecessor.

“The new icebreaker is a billion dollar project that should be built here in Australia,’ Mr Thompson said.

“Malcolm Turnbull is touring Australia talking up the need for innovation and enterprise and yet here he is sending jobs offshore as the Australian shipbuilding industry withers on the vine because of a lack of new orders.”

“Mr Turnbull needs to justify to Australian workers who are losing their jobs why his government has failed to back a local build.”
