Muslim land development scammers claim they are ‘exempt from Australian law’

Liberal Malcolm Turnbull and Labor Bill Shorten want to allow more grubs like these into the country

‘You dogs…I step on your cross…’ said the Imam

from ABC

A religious leader accused of illegal land clearing on a rural property used for religious prayer has claimed a Western Sydney council is infringing on his group’s religious freedoms by pursuing him over the allegations.

Hawkesbury City Council has launched civil action against Dr Mustapha Kara-Ali and Diaa Kara-Ali in the Land and Environment Court, alleging they carried out illegal land clearing, earthworks and built gates, fences and driveways without seeking any of the relevant development approvals at a property in Colo, in Sydney’s north west.

Mustapha Kara-Ali, a former member of then Prime Minister John Howard’s Muslim Community Reference Group and past postdoctoral fellow at Harvard University, is the Imam of religious guild Diwan Al Dawla.

A letter he wrote to a council staff member, filed in the court documents, says the members of the guild live “separated from secular lifestyles to pursue a religious mode of worship and an ascetic lifestyle under an oath of self-sacrifice and dedication to the purposes of Diwan Al Dawla”.

The Colo property was owned by the members of Diwan Al Dawla and used “for the carrying out of religious activities of devotion, self-discipline, ritual baptism, inter-community prayers, contemplation and religious study,” the letter said.

A council compliance officer visited the property in October last year following an anonymous complaint to find land clearing, including a number of large native trees and the removal of metal waste, according to court documents.

Over the following months, more complaints were made and council staff returned several times to find people clearing vegetation, knocking down trees and that a main gate, driveways and a boat ramp on the river bank had been built, the documents state.

The Council also issued a $8,000 fine for pollution or potential pollution caused by failed sediment erosion fencing.

The property is actually owned by Southern Chariot Stud, of which Diaa Kara-Ali is the director.

But Diaa Kara-Ali’s correspondence, filed to the court, states the Stud owns it in trust for Diwan Al Dawla, and that Mustapha Kara-Ali is responsible for all works being undertaken.

The conflict between council and the Kara-Alis came to a head last month when three council officers visited the property to provide them with court papers.

A dashcam video tendered to the court shows a man, standing beside Mustapha Kara-Ali, spitting on council staff and attempting to throw a large rock, which hits the fence and then falls to the ground.

“Both men were repeatedly yelling obscenities from the other side of the gate, calling out ‘you dogs, I step on your cross’,” one of the council staff alleged in an affidavit.

“The unknown male person said ‘I spit on you’. He then lunged his head forward towards me and spat at me.”

Religious charity ‘not required to comply’ with law

When the council wrote to Mustapha Kara-Ali directing him to remove a boat ramp and retaining walls at the property, he responded by claiming his organisation was exempt from Australian law because it was classed as a basic religious charity.

“The Australian Charities and Not-for-profits Commission (ACNC) Act 2012 stipulates that when it is carrying out religious activities that are related to the practice, study, teaching or propagation of its religious beliefs, or other activities ancillary to them … Diwan Al Dawla, as a basic religious charity is not required to comply with Australian laws,” he wrote.

“As the Imam of Diwan Al Dawla and its spiritual leader, I, therefore, ask the Hawkesbury City Council to revoke its letter … on the basis that its demands infringe upon our religious freedom and tamper with our mode of worship in contravention of our ACNC status as a Basic Religious Charity.”

An ACNC spokesperson said basic religious charities did not have to comply with the ACNC Governance Standards.

“However, the exemption of basic religious charities from complying with the Governance Standards does not mean that they do not have to comply with Australian laws,” the spokesperson said.

“A registered charity cannot have a purpose of engaging in or promoting unlawful activity — this can be grounds for revocation of charity status.”

Qld Govt says it owns rainfall once it hits the ground on your property

Lakeland farmers have been told they no longer own the water after rainfall hits the ground on their properties.

Desperate for irrigation water to keep their banana crops alive the State Government delivered a mortal blow preventing farmers from building any more dams over 50 megalitres capacity without applying for an expensive licence.

Mareeba-based Department of Natural Resources, Mines and Energy officer Patrick Huber broke the devastating news at a meeting of Lakeland farmers recently.

Mr Huber stressed that water caught in domestic rainwater tanks was safe from government hands but any other water belonged to the State.

Releasing the Draft Water Plan for Cape York Peninsula he said overland flow had to be protected and the department would soon require land owners with existing dams, large or small, to supply dam measurements and capacities to the department.

Within 12 months of receiving the information the DNR would then issue a licence for the water and install meters on all private dams to get an idea of water usage.

Qld farmers under plans by the Department of Natural Resources will soon be paying for their own water stored in their own dams on freehold property.

When questioned if the reason for water meters was to charge landowners for their own water, Mr Huber said there was no mention of this in the draft plan.

It was pointed out that other Labor states began charging farmers fees for private water storages more than a decade ago but DNR staff denied this was their intention.

The Draft Plan allowed for total usage of only 2.5 per cent of the entire water availability on Cape York, which did not impress the meeting.

In the Normanby Basin which includes Lakeland, “the Draft Bill allows 2000 ml for general use but has allocated 16,000 ml to indigenous groups because they are the largest landowners under the Cape York Peninsula Heritage Act,” Mr Huber said.

“If farmers require more water allocation they can buy it from various indigenous bodies at commercial water trading prices.”

The Plan allows for a total of 516,350 ml of unallocated water across Cape York.

Lakeland stud cattle breeder Bill Reddie questioned why no more dams could be built saying he had lived at Lakeland since the 1980’s.

“There is more water going down our gullies than 30 years ago which could be caught,” Mr Reddie commented.

Weipa grazier Mr John Witherspoon said he was angry the DNR had not provided any allocation in the Watson catchment or allowed more water for farm usage across the Cape.

“The State Government is right out of touch with the Peninsula and we should be demonstrating against them over taking away our water rights and charging so much just to apply for a licence with no guarantee of getting it,” Mr Witherspoon said.

In attendance at the meeting was Katters Australian Party candidate for Leichardt Dan McCarthy who questioned the reason for restricting land owners access to the vast amount of fresh water on Cape York thus preventing any further agricultural development.

“I am very concerned about the overarching policy of only allowing 2.5 per cent of water that falls on Cape York for farming,” Mr McCarthy said.

Katters Australian candidate for Leichardt(Cape York) Dan McCarthy says KAP policy is that landowners own water on their properties, which has been held at Common Law since Federation.

“The government needs to make up their minds. They are restricting access to a mere 2.5 per cent of rainfall that falls from the sky claiming any more would be detrimental to the environment, yet on the other hand they squeal like a stuck pig that runoff is killing the reef.

“We are blessed with abundant water during the wet season and we should be encouraging land owners to capture more water rather than the State Government persecuting them for using a natural resource.

“It’s disgraceful situation that legislation is leading towards farmers having to install meters on their own dams on their own properties which will lead to them having to pay for their own water..

“We are constantly told that runoff is killing the barrier reef but farmers want to capture water runoff.

“KAP policy is that farmers own any water that falls on their property so how is it they can eventually charge farmers for their own water? – contributed

 

US agrees to ‘Full Implementation’ of United Nations gun control pact

Has Australia and Foreign Minister Julie Bishop also agreed to sign us up?

Posted on July 8, 2018

Free Thought Project – by Rachel Blevins

While the United States is typically set apart from other countries when it comes to gun laws, a recent conference with the United Nations has raised major red flags, as the U.S. agreed to enact “full implementation” of an international agreement on gun control that will violate Americans’ constitutional rights by adding their personal information to a global database.

The Third Review Conference (RevCon) of the United Nations’ Program of Action (PoA) on Small Arms and Light Weapons was held in New York last week with a 2018 agreement, which states that its purpose is to serve as “a renewed commitment to prevent, combat and eradicate the illicit trade in small arms and light weapons in all its aspects.”

A strong advocate for private gun ownership and the removal of gun registration is federal MP Bob Katter at a pistol range.

“We, the States participating in the third United Nations Conference to review progress made in the implementation of the Program of Action to prevent, combat and eradicate the illicit trade in small arms and light weapons in all its aspects, convened at United Nations Headquarters in New York from 18 to 29 June 2018 to review progress made in implementation and identify priorities for strengthened implementation, reaffirm our commitment to the full and effective implementation of all of the provisions of the Program of Action and the International Tracing Instrument, with a view to ending the human suffering caused by the illicit trade in small arms and light weapons.”

The agreement states that it will act as an “international instrument to enable states to identify and trace, in a timely and reliable manner,” light arms and small weapons, while “bearing in mind the different situations, capacities, and priorities of States and regions.” All the while, it will be tracking “progress made in the implementation of the International Tracing Instrument; note the challenges to the implementation of the Instrument, whether continuing, recent or emerging.”

The conflict and post-conflict situations addressed by the agreement include the need for “disarmament, demobilization and reintegration programs and community violence reduction programs,” along with international instruments, such as, “regular inventories, surplus disposal, including through destruction, and the implementation of appropriate measures when losses are detected.”

The agreement also listed management and security measures that would include “marking, record-keeping and, as appropriate, tracing by law enforcement authorities, for illicit small arms and light weapons that are found, seized, or recovered in conflict and post-conflict situations.” 

In order to implement the agreement on a national level, the Program of Action lists a series of requirements for each government to follow:

  1. To establish or strengthen national laws, regulations and administrative procedures in support of the full and effective implementation of the Program of Action.
  2. To strengthen coordinated national approaches for the implementation of the Program of Action, including, as appropriate, the establishment or designation of national coordination agencies or bodies involving relevant government agencies, including those responsible for law enforcement, border control and export and import licensing.
  3. To promote the full participation and representation of women in mechanisms relating to the implementation of the Program of Actionand to encourage strong cooperation with civil society, parliamentarians, industry and the private sector.
  4. To establish or designate a national point of contact to act as a liaison between States on matters relating to the implementation of the Program of Action, and to share and update this information regularly, and to provide the point of contact with the necessary means to carry out its role.
  5. To encourage the development and implementation of national action plans or other national policies in support of the implementation of the Program of Action by making better use of existing information to improve the measurement of progress and to coordinate the development and implementation of such plans or policies, as appropriate, in collaboration with relevant stakeholders, including those from civil society and industry, with those relevant to target 16.4 of the 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development and to the relevant United Nations resolution on women, disarmament, non-proliferation and arms control.
  6. To significantly reduce the illicit flows of small arms and light weapons, as appropriate, through illicit weapons recovery and voluntary surrender programs.

Americans who are reading the agreement may be thinking that in order to fully implement it in the United States, it would require a full repeal of the Second Amendment—but this Program of Action appears to be the overreaching plan that has already been proposed, in part, in individual laws introduced on national and local levels in the U.S.

Media coverage and calls for stricter gun control on the local level are having a real effect as multiple cities pass bans on “assault rifles.” Residents in Deerfield, Illinois, were forced to turn in all guns that qualify as assault weapons last month, or face fines of $1,000 a day if they did not comply.

The city council in Boulder, Colorado, has followed suit by unanimously passing a ban on the sale and possession of assault weapons, high-capacity magazines and bump stocks, giving residents until July 15 to comply. Massachusetts and New Jersey have also passed statewide bans on bump stocks, and police were shocked to find that only a few people complied by turning in the newly illegal accessories.

On the national level, when gun control legislation was introduced in Congress last year, it came in the form of the Fix NICS Act, which was later rebranded as the STOP School Violence Act and signed into law in March after it was quietly included in the 2018 Omnibus Appropriations bill. The legislation amends the agencies that have control over the National Instant Criminal Background Check System, which determines whether Americans are allowed to own guns.

As The Free Thought Project has reported, the changes to the NICS system—which received support from Democrats, Republicans, and even the NRA—put pressure on federal agencies and states to report as many names as possible, “making it only a matter of time before this list becomes so large that nearly any activity could serve to remove your Second Amendment rights.”

The NICS database will now continue to grow in the U.S. with government agencies receiving incentives for their contributions, and the United States’ involvement with the United Nations gives it the perfect setup to turn over all of its information on American citizens in the NICS database, in order to fully cooperate with the UN’s Program of Action.

As always, when rights are stripped away and civil liberties are ignored, it is done in the name of “safety and security,” even though, as history has shown, the opposite is true.

 

South African blacks to kick white farmers off their land

SOUTH AFRICA– White genocide, a re-run of Rhodesia

Greens leader Richard Di Natale accuses Dutton of racism for not bringing in more black savages

SOUTH AFRICA is in the news once again. But this time with an unexpected surprising crude twist. History is about to repeat itself. Peter Dutton– Immigration Minister in Australia has shown some guts – and opened a can of worms that now are reverberating across the world. He proposed that his department speed up visas for white farmers that want to migrate to Australia. AND that is HOT news that suddenly has the whole world abuzz. 

The Afrikaners won’t tolerate another loss of land under any circumstances. Most of the 50 million black South Africans do not originate from South Africa. The Boers have as much right to stay there and feed the nation. If murderous Mandela’s ANC removes the white farmers then they will starve, just like Rhodesia.

For many years now  white farmers in South Africa have been exterminated in organized attacks- backed by the ANC regime. This fact was substantiated by both Adriana Stuijt from  the Netherlands – as well as  Dr. Gregory Stanton of Genocide Watch International in a report to the United Nations a few years ago already in his fact finding mission about the brutal onslaught against white farmers.  He classified the genocide in South Africa as a level 6 genocide.

Yet – because of the demonization  of the Afrikaners by mainly the British Press– nobody paid any serious attention to his warning- and because of that-

The late ANC leader Nelson Mandela has been accused of terrorism against the white and black population. Necklacing was the preferred method of murder by using tyres filled with petrol which were wrapped around their necks and set alight.

somehow the ANC got it right to slither past the international attention. The mind-set at that time was that the Afrikaners “deserved” to be slaughtered. That was what the liberal media propagated. But times have changed considerably since then.

Europe and the rest of the world is fed up with white nations being oppressed by the Jews -as well as all the flooding of their countries by alien infestations. More and more countries now turns back  to conservative values. Civil wars are brooding in Germany, Britain – and even the French are slowly waking up. America lead the way towards conservatism- thus it comes to no surprise that even Australia- also now heavily burdened with Muslim invasions- are in the process of breaking free  from their  liberal capturing cocoon. Thus the ANC communists and their vintage vindictiveness  now finds themselves wanted and their evil dictatorial ways now backfiring in their faces. Their time is up! 

For 20 years this onslaught went on unnoticed because the ANC was able to silence the media, cook stats, use the power of flat denial- and later on have time to even fine-tune and secretly fund their genocide against whites. They thought they have mastered the perfect killing method. By keeping on the “racist” rhetoric in their lapdog media against whites – they reckoned it will forever brain wash the international community that white Afrikaners are the true “racists”  and skunks of the world. BUT under the surface of a visible fair “democracy”-  there was another more sinister scenario playing itself off- one of brutal oppression, discrimination, dehumanization– and a silent genocide.

Australian Immigration Minister Peter Dutton has opened the doors to white migration from South Africa and hailed a hero by white South Africans

Then suddenly cracks start to appear in their otherwise solid defense. You can be as meticulous as humanly possible- but because the term “human” comes into play- you can expect to make mistakes- and that was precisely what the ANC did. The first cracks appear when they made a fuss about Katie Hopkins– the British journalist that visited South Africa on a fact finding mission about the farm murders. Instead of being friendly and helpful- they attacked her- and on her departure..ARRESTED her and want to take her passport away.

That was a BIG mistake! From their own earlier days being the “victims”- they should be quite aware of the fact that you do NOT f*ck around with news reporters- especially not international ones. What they did not notice- was that yet another correspondent- Laura Southern,- a Canadian reporter- ALSO was entering  into the country quietly and unnoticed.

She also did a fact finding mission on the farm murders- and this clever little vixen managed to slip past their security net without arousing suspicion – and quietly slipped out of the country again. Good for her!!  Now this foxy lady is giving them hell- exposing the white genocide in its full capacity from abroad…and it’s gonna get sticky.

But the ANC became complacent, arrogant- and sloppy. Then they committed their biggest felony- the pushed for “land expropriation without compensation” to foreclose all white farm land . That was the final nail in their clandestine coffin. Then by the action of one man-  Peter Dutton – their little ebony tower was rocked to its foundation – he exposed their weakest link...the white farm murders! As always the ANC killers made yet another foolish bugger-up….they  arrogantly “demanded” Dutton retract his statement to help white farmers. This only underlines the level of arrogance with witch the ANC mass murderers  operate.

Can white farmers expect this ‘necklacing’ treatment after the SA Parliament passed a law allowing black Africans to confiscate their land without compensation?

They have grossly misjudged it this time. You do not “demand” from international politicians to do something. Canada maybe…Sweden maybe- but not Aussieland. They are a bunch of stubborn buggers – much like the Boers! They do not adhere to your African whims and orders. Neither do they listen to your “commands” either. Needless to say Dutton ignored them. And more and more Australian politicians are joining him. Suddenly the ANC dictatorship now  finds itself out of its depth as hundreds of international politicians, reporters and bloggers alike sprung up from no-where- condemning the communist kleptocracy with a vengeance-  born out of years of enforced liberal silence. Suddenly the “democratic” holy grail of Africa becomes the skunks of the world. Even staunch liberals now are attacking them. They now all are gunning for the ANC terrorists- and they seem to bring hell with them.

The ANC “strugglers” became used to everybody sucking up to their whims….but not this time. The party is over.  It now is time to dance with the Grim Reaper. As one politician in Australia rightly put it: ” Mandela’s legacy is DEAD!” Even A Call for sanctions and a sport boycott was mentioned for the farm murders.Now a domino effect is taking form as more and more politicians, correspondents , bloggers and activists from Belgium, Britain and the USA join the fry.  And they are not very friendly by look of it either. Soon more voices from Europe will be added to the ANC’s swan song. For long the Afrikaner prayed for some higher intervention in their struggle for survival under a brutal oppression – and lo…God surely works in mysterious ways. -contributed by White Nation

Lancet outs fluoride as a dangerous neurotoxin

A report from the world’s oldest and most prestigious medical journal, The Lancet, has officially classified fluoride as a neurotoxin, in the same category as arsenic, lead, and mercury. [1] 

The news was broken by author Stefan Smyle and disseminated by the Facebook page Occupy Food, which linked to the report published in The Lancet Neurology, Volume 13, Issue 3, in the March 2014 edition, by authors Dr. Phillippe Grandjean and Philip J. Landrigan, MD. The report can be viewed by clicking here.

Industrial chemicals identified

As noted in the summary of the report, a systematic review identified five different similar industrial chemicals as developmental neurotoxicants: lead, methylmercury, polychlorinated biphenyls, arsenic, and toluene.

The summary goes on to state that six additional developmental neurotoxicants have also now been identified: manganese, fluoride, chlorpyrifos, dichlorodiphenyltrichloroethane, tetrachloroethylene, and the polybrominated diphenyl ethers.

The authors added that even more of these neurotoxicants remain undiscovered.

Fluoride has been named by the prestigious medical journal ‘Lancet’ as being a neurotoxin, but the Qld Labor Party knows better, insisting it be added to drinking water

ADHD, Dyslexia, and other cognitive impairments

In the Lancet report, the authors propose a global prevention strategy, saying that “untested chemicals should not be presumed to be safe to brain development, and chemicals in existing use and all new chemicals must, therefore, be tested for developmental neurotoxicity.”

Also in the report, they note that neurodevelopmental disabilities, including attention-deficit hyperactivity disorder, dyslexia, and other cognitive impairments, are now affecting millions of children worldwide in what they call a “pandemic of developmental neurotoxicity.”

The report coincides with 2013 findings by a Harvard University meta-analysis funded by the National Institutes of Health, which concluded that children in areas with highly fluoridated water have “significantly lower” IQ scores than those who live in areas with low amounts of fluoride in their water supplies. [2]

Fluoride also linked to cancers

Sodium fluoride in drinking water has also been linked to various cancers.

It is functionally different than the naturally-occurring calcium fluoride, and commonly added to drinking water supplies and used by dentists and in dental products who posit that it is useful for dental health.

Currently, fluoride is added to water supplies across much of North America, however, adding fluoride to drinking water is not always standard practice, being banned entirely throughout most of Continental Europe and in several other developed nations across the world.

Australian Broadcasting Corporation perpetuates the Port Arthur massacre myth

by investigative journalist and editor-at-large Gil Hanrahan

The ABC has been caught out acting as an agent of government perpetuating the lies and terrible media misinformation that surrounds the Port Arthur massacre where 35 people allegedly were killed by a lone shooter, Martin Bryant.

For 22 years the ABC and other mainstream media have been paramount in manipulating the true story of Port Arthur, how a drill turned into a massacre which has been covered up at the highest levels of government.

ABC Hobart journalist Fiona Blackwood was either under instruction or did not bother to do any basic research when she claimed Martin Bryant shot Peter Croswell, instead perpetuating the now thoroughly discredited line that intellectually impaired Bryant was the shooter.

This week the Tasmania Liberal Party Government, in election mode, announced it will free up the stringent provisions of the state’s firearms laws enacted by all states after the Port Arthur event in 1996.

The  Liberals have proposed changes to gun laws which would give farm workers and sporting shooters greater access to category C weapons, including pump-action shotguns, self-loading rifles and silencers.

The usual cries of horror by the media and now a survivor of the shooting, are screaming foul that the laws should not be tampered with and left alone.

Port Arthur shooting survivor Peter Croswell does not want any changes made to gun laws by the Tasmania Liberals should they win today’s state election.

The excerpt below from an ABC news transcript released on March 2, 2018, clearly shows how a manipulative journalist, Fiona Blackwood, has inferred Port Arthur victim Peter Croswell was shot by Martin Bryant.

“…survivor Peter Crosswell said he would be devastated if Tasmania’s gun laws were weakened in any way.

Mr Crosswell was shot by Martin Bryant while lying on the ground trying to protect two women.

He was one of the few people to survive the shooting massacre inside the Broad Arrow Cafe at the convict-era tourism site at Port Arthur in 1996, later being awarded a bravery medal for his actions.

“After Port Arthur, there was a lot of work put in by a lot of people, a lot of people were in a great deal of pain then, to get these gun laws in place,” Mr Croswell said….”

Nowhere in the ABC article was Mr Croswell directly quoted as saying Martin Bryant shot him.

Thanks to expatriate Australian, now Austrian-based investigative journalist and author Keith Noble, his hallmark work MASS MURDER: Official Killing in Tasmania, Australia (2nd edition; 2014) reveals a great deal about the massacre the Federal Government would not like published in the news media.

Indeed on April 28,1996, the same day he was shot Mr Croswell was shown a number of photos including one of Martin Bryant and in his statement told police:

WITNESS:   CROSSWELL, Peter David

DATE:          28 April 1996 (same day as incident)

CONCERNS: “At this point a male person stood up. He yelled out something like ‘No No Not Here.’ I then saw the gun­man shoot this guy in the head.” &
“I didn’t move but I could see his sandshoes across the floor.” &“I then saw a yellow car of some description leave the car park.”

WITNESS:   CROSSWELL, Peter David

DATE:          1 July 1996 (63 days after incident)

CONCERNS: “…long shoulder length blonde hair.” &

                    “I do however remember that he was carrying a long bag when he came into the restaurant. The bag appeared to be heavy.” &

                    “I have been shown a photograph identification board by Detective GHEDINI which consisted of thirty (30) photo­ graphs of male persons. I am unable to identify any of these males as being responsible for the shootings in­ side the Broad Arrow Café.”

A footnote by author Keith Noble identifies the man who stood up in the Broad Arrow café when the shooting started:

“This witness(Peter Crosswell) was wounded inside the café. To his credit and that of witnesses Pamelia (sic) Law and Thelma Walker who were with Crosswell, none of them identified Martin Bryant as the gunman. It would have been easy for them to say it was Martin. They all saw the gunman, but they all stated the truth – they did not see Martin Bryant. Thank you. The person this witness saw get shot inside the cafe, the person who called out “No No Not Here,” is believed to be Anthony Nightingale, a suspected intelligence agent. (see INDEX)”

The news clip from ABC archives shows Mr Croswell in hospital, but his narrative does not mention Martin Bryant.

This is the depth of depravity into which our mainstream media will prostitute themselves to keep the real truth from the public.

We could make excuses for the ABC journalist as she would have been a young girl at the time of Port Arthur, however she was either under instruction or had not bothered to do any basic research about the events of that fateful day at one of Tasmania’s iconic convict outposts.

NOTE: Cairns News does not in any way suggest Peter David Croswell is involved in a cover-up of the actual events at Port Arthur, then or now. Major amendments to Australia’s costly, unworkable and ineffective gun laws are long overdue consequently the Cairns News editorial board wishes the Tasmania Liberal Party all the best for the election and sincerely hopes it can retain government. Read our archives for more in-depth investigations of this tragic event. There you will discover a photograph and the names of the real shooters, as well as the true reason why the President of the Australian senate was forced to quit Parliament last year.

How Barnaby could save us from this putrid billabong

Larry Pickering

Four-time Walkley Award winning political commentator and Churchill Fellow, has returned to the fray over concern that the integrity of news dissemination is continually being threatened by a partisan media.

 

The next NATs’ Party meeting could set Australia back on track by deciding to reverse what Turnbull tried to do to them. Turnbull made no secret of the fact he was trying to get the NATs to sack Barnaby. Well, that’s heresy and guess what, as I have been saying from day one, Barnaby is going nowhere, it’s Turnbull who should be worried.

A deputation of NATs should now go to Turnbull’s office and demand he step down or the NATs will rip up the coalition agreement and leave the Libs to wallow diseased and deceased.

“WTF?”… Of course, Turnbull will not agree.

So, at the next joint Party meeting, the proposition should be put to the entire Liberal Party where many would be quite excited by the idea.

The NATs, in the meantime, will have had meetings with Bernardi and all other Right of Centre Parties and Independents, who I believe would break their necks to preference the NATs at the next election but not the Libs.

Turnbull support diminished and still shrinking

There would no doubt be Liberal Party defections as it became clear that this NAT coalition would stop Shorten dead in his tracks and the Liberal Party would effectively become defunct, never to rule again.

Those who always voted Liberal will also naturally preference the NATs. The Liberal Party deserves to die for allowing Turnbull to capitulate to his Lefty Labor mates, deserting the Menzies centrist doctrine.

The combination would see the NATs as the senior conservative Party in Government as it already holds 21 seats in the Parliament. The three-corner election deals would be scrapped and the NATs could field and win with candidates in seats, where it formerly could not.

This would give Aussie voters what they crave… a clear choice between socialist and conservative and if you add to that Shorten’s appalling popularity figures it would be impossible for even Graham Richardson to predict a Labor/Green win.

The senior Coalition partner?

The NATs would undoubtedly win between 35 and 40 seats, most at the expense of the Liberals, but it would be the NATs, combined with a diminished Liberal Party, who would be able to convince the GG that they could easily form government as one Party.

The Liberals would then have to agree to a One-Party Conservative Coalition where grubby Lefty wastrels like Bishop, Payne, Frydenberg, Hunt and Pyne etc would no longer run the joint and they would have to toe the line as they did before Turnbull assassinated Abbott.

A One-Party Coalition Government would likely elect Dutton as PM and retain Joyce as his Deputy.

Now Australia could have an honest Conservative Government that will kill off the ABC and Fraser’s SBS, dump the Paris accord, start re-mining coal, get energy costs back to normal, ban RETs, develop the north, start on nuclear power, halve immigration, combine and halve our security agencies, decimate the corrupt and bloated SCSIRO, ban immigration from known terrorist nations, reduce QUANGOs by 75%, reduce all Departmental budgets by 10%, reduce the Public Service by 5,000, cap their salaries, allow the States to collect and spend their own GST, stop ‘nominated’ Aboriginal status, reform the judiciaries, Reform the Senate, force States to reform the Family Court and the CSA, stop Islamic welfare rorts, tell the Islamic dominated UN to go root its boot, ban deficit spending, rip up 20,000 regulations, cull crocodiles and bats and at the next election include a fair dinkum referendum on restoring a trashed Marriage Act. (You can look forward to a much different result than the last Green inspired dodgy one.)

Okay so I might have my hand on it but really, Turnbull must go, and the only people with the testicular fortitude to make that happen are the NATs.

Coming soon to Australia at a school near you

This experienced Colorado teacher, Karen Smith, has been charged with ‘child abuse’ for making a snotty nosed kid stand up for the Pledge of Allegiance’. How long before this happens in an Australian school when a politically correct, gender confused boy dressed as a girl refuses to stand for the national anthem?

A Colorado middle school teacher is facing child abuse charges for forcing a boy to stand during the Pledge of Allegiance, a report says

from Breibart News by Warner Todd Huston

Karen Smith, a physical education teacher at Angevine Middle School in Lafayette, Colorado, is accused of grabbing a student by his jacket and forcing him to stand during the recitation and then forcibly removing him from the classroom afterward. The incident occurred on February 1, Denver’s CB affiliate reported.

Smith, a 20-year teaching veteran, turned herself in to police on February 1 to face the charges of child abuse as well as assault in the third degree.

The Boulder Valley School District released a statement saying they were cooperating with authorities:

Today we learned that the Boulder County District Attorney’s office has formally charged Angevine Middle School Physical Education Teacher Karen Smith. Ms. Smith has served Boulder Valley School District for 20 years and is currently on paid administrative leave.

We are cooperating with the District Attorney’s Office and respect their decision on this matter. We are unable to comment further because it remains a personnel matter that the school district is actively investigating.

A district spokesperson also told the media that there is no rule requiring students to stand for the Pledge.

“No basis for objection need be stated,” Randy Barber wrote in an email obtained by the New York Daily News. “Students who choose not to participate should not be disciplined nor should they be forced to stand, leave the room, or be ostracized in any way.”

“We are dedicated, as always, to supporting our students and ensuring that we have qualified educators working with them during their physical education time,” district spokesperson Randy Barber said.

The teacher is known to be “strict” with students, but there is no public history of complaints against her.

EHP calls tenders to bulldoze huge dam wall near Cooktown; 30,000 tonnes of potential sediment runoff

The fallout from the 2016 acquisition of Springvale Station at Lakeland continues after the Queensland Department of Environment and Heritage Protection called for tenders to demolish a 1200 megalitre irrigation dam on the property.

Last year the EPH was caught out when a neighbour complained of long silt plumes found in the permanent East Normanby River after the department began siphoning water from the $400,000 dam into the river.

The river eventually drains into Princess Charlotte Bay and onto the Great Barrier Reef.

This massive irrigation dam costing $400,000 to construct will soon be bulldozed by EHP, by removing an estimated 30,000 cubic metres of earth in the wall. An engineer predicts this soil could eventually end up in the river system and be deposited onto the Great Barrier Reef.

 

The water was left to run across 150 metres of soil between the dam bank and the river, gouging one metre channels in the earth creating many hundreds of tonnes of sediment which flowed into the river.

A local engineer estimated the wall would contain 30,000 cubic metres of compacted earth, when removed could eventually end up in the river system.

The hydrologist who designed the dam for the previous owners said the dam wall was sound and in no way would have breached after heavy rain events.

The EHP Minister at the time, Stephen Miles, claimed the design of the dam’s construction was unknown and therefore considered the wall “unsafe.”

Refuting the Minister’s assertion, the hydrologist, Geoff Benjamin, of Mareeba, said the wall remained intact and sound after 300 mm fell in one night, before the wall construction was finally completed.

“The dam was designed with an effective spillway and fish-way, however construction work was forced to cease due to early wet-season rains,” Mr Benjamin said.

“Although I did not visit the site when work ceased, I believe that the embankment height was about 1 to 1.5 m below the intended final design elevation.

“At this elevation a natural depression on the eastern side provides a broad, natural spillway so that the embankment would not be compromised in the event of intense storm run-off; which is in fact, exactly what occurred when Cyclone Etta, I think, passed straight over the property in January 2014, reportedly dropping about 300 mm of rain over-night!

“The statement about ‘unacceptable safety risk’ would therefore seem totally baseless.  Unfortunately such uninformed, alarmist comments seem to be what we’ve come to expect from this particular Minister.”

Defending the decision to demolish the valuable water asset, home to innumerable birdlife and other aquatic wildlife, the EHP claimed the design was unknown, which has been ridiculed by Mr Benjamin.

“Likewise the assertion that ‘the status of its design and capacity is unknown’ is inaccurate, since I provided details of the design to one of the Minister’s departmental officers not long after EHP acquired the Springvale property,” Mr Benjamin said.

The EHP claimed it acquired Springvale to prevent sediment runoff into the Great Barrier Reef catchment, however the Chief Scientist for Queensland, Dr Geoff Garrett, told a meeting of landowners at Lakeland prior to the property purchase there was no measurable sediment runoff from the Upper Normanby catchment.

Minister Miles ignored this advice and continued with the purchase, wasting $7 million of taxpayers funds and removed 4000 head of cattle from the local economy.

The property is being divided into yet more unnecessary national park with the balance being given to an indigenous group.

Tenders to decommission the dam were called on January 24 and will close on March 5, 2018.
