This absolutely brilliant quote from the former President of the Czech Republic Vaclav Klaus – a spot on description of the US voters and the US Media:
“The danger to America is not Barack Obama, but a citizenry capable of entrusting a man like him with the presidency. It will be far easier to limit and undo the follies of an Obama presidency than to restore the necessary common sense and good judgment to a depraved electorate willing to have such a man for their president.
The problem is much deeper and far more serious than Mr. Obama, who is a mere symptom of what ails America. Blaming the prince of the fools should not blind anyone to the vast confederacy of fools that made him their prince. The republic can survive a Barack Obama, who is, after all, merely a fool.
It is less likely to survive a multitude of fools, such as those who made him their president.”
It would be easy to attribute this brilliant expose of the US public to the Queensland voters who supported the Marxists of Queensland Labor at the November election, albeit with a good deal of voting fraud thrown in.

If you love our nation and want the best for the future of our children and their descendents take the time to watch this video FIRST. We have listed the references below with comments about how the laws have been used against us. This video runs for one hour. We bet you won’t be able to stop watching it as you learn how the political parties have lied, deceived, stolen and destroyed our nation and our heritage…..
Many Australians know that something has gone with our political system, but we don’t know why it is broken, how it happened, or who is responsible. We have seen our manufacturing base eroded and destroyed. Our farmers are no longer among the top producers as we were in the past. We have draconian laws being enacted, yet We the People are powerless to stop them. As a result, our freedoms have been eroded, and many of them destroyed.

Minister Cormann refuses to answer questions regarding the security of the postal ballot
by Lex Stewart, President of Vote Australia
Possibly, Yes. Massive frauds cannot be ruled out yet.
It might be that the officers of the ABS (with staff seconded from the AEC) have conducted the Australian Marriage Law Postal Survey in an honest and accurate manner, so that the Australian public can trust the result.
However it is also possible that massive frauds have been conducted, and that the true result could have been 60% no, and 40% yes.
We do not yet have sufficient information to rule out the possibility that the AMLPS result was massively frauded.
Over the period 26 September to 8 November I asked about 30 questions of the ABS and of the Minister Cormann.
In the absence of answers at this stage, it is impossible to verify the accuracy and integrity of what happened in the AMLPS.
I say this from my perspectives both as President of Vote Australia, and as a Consultant Engineer who does Audits of factories and farms for Workplace Health and Safety and for Food Safety, issuing ‘HACCP’ compliance certificates.
It is almost meaningless if I inspect a factory and find that the food being produced is free of contamination, or that nobody was killed or injured on that day.
It is not just what happens when I am present in a factory or farm that matters. There needs to be in place a robust “quality assurance” program, with transparency and accountability.
Before I can issue a compliance certificate, I need to check the management, methods, training, etc to make sure that hazards have been assessed and that procedures are in place to ensure food safety or human safety for the other 364 days of the year.
The lack of evidence of a robust “quality assurance” program and procedures in the ABS is alarming.
Based on the somewhat limited information to hand so far:
- Website www.abs.gov.au, notably the two sections with titles:- “Quality & Integrity Statement” and “External Observers”
- The “Fraud Control Plan and fraud control measures”and its related ‘comprehensive risk assessment’ mentioned on www.abs.gov.au have not been made public
- And this plan and assessment seem not to have been audited by independent experts
- Unsatisfactory answers by the ABS to some of my 9 questions of 26 September
- Lack of answers by the ABS to my questions numbered 10 to 22 of 7 and 8 November
- Lack of answers by the Minister’s office to my 8 questions numbered A to G
- Apparent anomalies in the mathematical patterns of votes
- The refusal by Protoviti, the auditor engaged by the ABS, to answer my questions
- The ABS not making public the Protoviti reports (likely they have done excellent work, but only within the scope of the ‘terms of reference’ set for them by the ABS)
- The strange phenomenon that Protoviti employees were forced to sign a “non-disclosure” agreement – the sort of thing only relevant to matters of defence and commercial competitiveness re tenders etc
- The lack of any publicly-available knowledge as to whether the ‘terms of reference’ (i.e. the scope of activities that Protoviti was asked to address) were adequate or had been set too restrictively by the ABS
- The inherent possibility that ABS computers could have been ‘hacked’ unless the “cyber security controls including extensive use of data encryption” were of a higher standard than that which normally prevails in Canberra public service agencies
October 11, 2017 – The LNP tonight backed Jackie Trad’s stricter Queensland gun control laws, with both parties displaying their willingness to work together to successfully attack the rights of law-abiding firearm owners.
The major party duopoly voted down a KAP Disallowance motion, ensuring more irrational changes will be made to the National Firearms Agreement (NFA).
KAP members Robbie Katter and Shane Knuth commended LNP Member for Gympie, Tony Perrett for crossing the floor to vote for KAP’s disallowance motion and for putting his constituents before his party.
After a debate characterised by mudslinging and misdirection the LNP sided with the Government to vote down the KAP motion moved by Robbie Katter resulting in Queensland now having gun laws which go far beyond those put in place by John Howard.
When debating the motion, Robbie urged all members of the house to look past the fear and emotion of the issue to ensure our laws are based on evidence and fairness.
“The changes to the NFA have absolutely no empirical or practical justification.
“Unfortunately these laws only punish people who do the right thing while doing nothing to address community safety,’’ Robbie said.
Member of Dalrymple Shane Knuth said if the State Government was serious about community safety it would look at measures which crackdown on gun crime, including a permanent amnesty, real time licence verification and better mail and customs screening to stop illegal weapons entering the country.
“The aim of the KAP disallowance motion was to remove the additional regulations imposed by Labor, resulting in tougher gun control laws,’’ Mr Knuth said.
“The LNP had the chance to block these tougher gun controls but chose to support Labor, even though they had been telling constituents they would champion law-abiding gun owners.’’
The LNP attempted to shift the blame to the State Government and the KAP for their decision to support the irrational NFA changes, however it was clear to all observers this was a weak attempt to move the focus away from their attack on law-abiding gun owners and the division within their own party.
“We will always support measures that make the community safer however, good policy needs to be based on evidence and not emotion,’’ Mr Knuth said.
Leader of the Opposition, Tim Nicholls quoted support for John Howard’s gun laws as the rationale. However, the new regulations significantly strengthen John Howard’s laws and they have been made without sufficient consultation with shooters.
The major aspects of the regulations which strengthen John Howard’s laws include:
– A reclassification of lever action shotguns to Category D, which is the same category as AK-47s and AR-15s, while pump action shotguns with the same capacity are classified in Category C.
– Serious questions around changes to the definition of lawful modification which could have the effect of making any type of weapon that has been modified by a licence shooter illegal. This has potential to make hundreds of thousands weapons illegal.
– If weapons are now deemed illegal they need to be handed back. With no compensation scheme in place this is perhaps the biggest injustice in the new laws.
Robbie Katter talks about a number of changes that could be brought in to improve community safety.
“There are a number of things that could be done to improve community safety including a permanent amnesty, a real time licence verification system, better screening of packages coming in from overseas and redirecting resources from persecution of law abiding shooters to fighting gun crime.
“According to a report by the auditor general, Customs only screens 25% of consignments, whereas previously all international mail coming into Australia was scanned. That equates to just 46 million scans, resulting in 67,123 prohibited items being seized. On those calculations, a further 201,369 prohibited items were let into the country,” Robbie said.
BRING ON THE ELECTION … NOW IS THE TIME
PM’s no-show at repatriation “a bastard act” – Veterans Party
Mr Davey said that the PM’s decision demonstrates that he is seemingly more interested in his own political career than honouring fallen veterans and their families on a day of national significance.
“Like many Australians, I chose to watch the live coverage of the Terendak Repatriation. To my surprise, which quickly turned into an emotion of disgust, was the evident absence of our Prime Minister,” Mr Davey said.
“The Prime Minister holds the office that determines if Australia’s men and women go to war, and he should certainly have been there to see their return home, especially at a moment of such significance to the families, Vietnam Veterans and the wider Australian public.
“Mr Turnbull’s decision to campaign in a mattress factory was incomprehensible, and probably robbed the opposition leader of the opportunity to attend alongside the PM in a show of bipartisanship.
“I’ve been hearing the reaction of many veterans and whilst the majority of them were hammering the Prime Minister, Opposition Leader Bill Shorten has also been copping a fair flogging.
“Now I’m only speculating here, but I would suggest that if Mr Turnbull had made the conscious decision not to attend, then probably no opportunity existed for Mr Shorten to attend – but, Mr Shorten probably needs to clarify why he was not there too.”
Mr Davey added that Treasurer Scott Morrison’s choice of words and signage at a concurrent press conference was a poor decision.
“If I was Mr Morrison I’d be checking whether my closest advisers and confidants were members of another political party, because using the word ‘war’ in both his speech and accompanying signage at the time of a repatriation ceremony was simply clueless,” Mr Davey said.
“Surely such a political aspirant didn’t come up with this ‘brain-child’ idea himself.
The Veterans Party leader said today’s performance by key members of the Government were hardly heartening for Australia’s veterans or those who serve in the Australian Defence Force, let alone others in the Australian public.
“Let me say this to you Mr Turnbull; your decision today leads many to the suspicion that you possess no tradition other than self-interest. You have demonstrated a complete lack of leadership and a total disconnect from the issues close to the heart of our country. Even odds however, come Anzac Day, and you are the Prime Minister, you’ll be there hand on heart and taking salutes from members of the men and women who serve our country,” Mr Davey said.
Tuesday morning 31st May 2016 leader of this nation Malcolm Turnbull did not acknowledge returning thirty-three of our soldier and dependants from Malaysia and Singapore cemeteries in coffin draped with the Australian flag and carried by members of our ADF from the two Hercules aircraft at Richmond RAAF Base in NSW led by a chaplain, a lone piper and a drummer through a guard of honour into a hangar where some 100 relative had assembled to grieve.
Opposition leader Bill Shorten also was conspicuous by his absence as he maintain that plethora of lies and deceit with Mr Turnbull on their panic stricken campaign trail reflecting voters turning away in droves from the corrupt governments delivered by Liberal and Labor, took preference to honoring our fallen returning home.
Ex-service men and women wishing to reclaim Australia from the clutches of Liberal, Labor and Greens, to disengage them from controlling your parliament, may vote for “Veterans Party ” by visiting candidates tab on their website – http://www.advp.org.au and place the LNP’ALP’Greens last on you ballot paper.
Do not forget to take a pen with you on polling day, just to keep the bastard honest. Polling booth pencils can and do get altered. If you are challenged using ink, ask to see the supervisor of the booth to show you where in the electoral act it states you must use pencil – it does not exist.
from Australians for Honest Elections
· AEC not capable of detecting false enrolments that we found previously
· Audit Office reports show AEC did not act on recommendations to fix things
· cheating by multiple voting (18,770 at last election) can be expected again
As the deadline has now just passed for people to get their names onto the Electoral Roll, elections-monitoring body Australians for Honest Elections points to long-standing problems in the Electoral Rolls and questions the Australian Electoral Commission’s capacity to adequately cleanse the Rolls of false enrolments.
“There is always a last minute rush to get many thousands of enrolments onto the Electoral Roll before the deadline. We have evidence that the AEC accepts last-minute rush enrolments at face value and does not properly check them, and that some of these enrolments are then rapidly removed after the election, having been used to vote in false names. It seems that the AEC has neither the willingness nor the capacity to properly check that many enrolments are genuine,” said Lex Stewart, President of Australians for Honest Elections.
“There were 18,770 multiple votes at the last election yet nobody was prosecuted and no remedial measures have been introduced to stop it happening again!”
“With lack of ID to vote, such false enrolments and multiple voting could swing the results in marginal seats and pervert the election outcome,” said Mr Stewart.
The Australian National Audit Office conducted investigations into the “Integrity of the Electoral Roll” in 2002, 2004, 2010 and 2014 and found massive problems, and made recommendations, yet the AEC did little to fix things up.
EVEN WORSE the ANAO report of 4/11/2015 was ignored by Parliament and the media. The report states in unusually harsh language for a Canberra bureaucracy that the AEC inter alia has “not adequately and effectively addressed the matters that led to recommendations being made.
“Special Ministers of State have been ‘asleep at the wheel’ for years, allowing the AEC to get away with negligence of which the bungled WA Senate election fiasco was only one prominent example of many that this organisation has evidence of”
“Putting it bluntly, the AEC is simply not capable of running an honest, fair election with a clean Electoral Roll,” said Mr Stewart.
The Citizens for Honest Elections have calculated the only way to vote in the senate. Please follow the instructions below get this out to everybody you know.
DO NOT vote
(a) only “1” above the line, or
(b) 1 to only 6 above the line, or
(c) 1 to only 12 below the line
but please instead vote
(d) to number ALL squares above the line, or below the line.
In case you have any doubt this has been said about the treacherous Liberals and their partners in crime, the Greens:
· ex-PM John Howard said at a Liberal party dinner a few weeks ago, that this new Senate voting law “will entrench the Greens in control” [in the Senate]
· ALP Senator Conroy said in Hansard on 23 Feb, “… Let us be clear about this. The Government and the Greens want to wipe out the cross-benchers. That is the purpose of this Bill.”
· ALP Senator Dastyari said, “…This is a rort. This is a set of rules, a structure and a system that have been created with the sole purpose of wiping out a handful of crossbench Senators and locking in a handful of Greens senators. …. Let’s be honest about the result – there will be only 3 parties in the Senate and a Xenophon. … This introduction of optional preferential voting will result in a massive exhaustion of votes. This is about making sure that the votes of those people who choose to vote for a minor party will go nowhere.”
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.”
Major parties panic, change voting rules as intelligent electors join forces with disenchanted voters
People and the party faithful now are awakening they are being controlled by the major parties who are feeling this serious trend.
With battle lines being drawn in the Senate the major parties are experiencing their power base being dismantled by independent senators out of their control that has forced desperate action for survival at the coming election. Again they shift the goal posts by changing the rules to allow themselves preferential treatment on the senate ballot paper.
Liberal and Labor become allies when their decades of government dictatorship become threatened by the people.
The cross benchers represent people in parliament not party rooms engaging the agendas of big business.
Attracting detrimental comments from the threatened party room machines who control the stream of intimidating press releases from their spin doctors and fiction story tellers, the cross bench threat to the parties needs to be removed.
“If you play by their rules, you lose”
“Your rules apply on polling day, and they lose”
Make the most of it.
Will you vote with the SHEEPLE or the PEOPLE ?
December 20, 2015 Yoni Bashan and James Hooper The Sunday Telegraph
HIGH-profile deputy mayor Salim Mehajer has been charged with forging documents to rig the 2012 Auburn Council ballot that got him elected.
An Australian Federal Police investigation has also charged Mehajer’s sister Fatima, his brother-in-law Jamal Elkheir and five other associates and school friends who ran as candidates in the council poll.
The Mehajer siblings are accused of forging documents, a crime that carries a maximum penalty of 10 years in prison.
The rest of the group is charged with falsifying their candidate information sheets to claim they resided at addresses in Auburn, making them eligible to run.
The deputy mayor first came to the attention of the wider public earlier this year when his wedding, featuring helicopters, sports cars and a military flyover, all being filmed by a professional movie crew, brought parts of Sydney to a standstill.
However, the AFP has been watching Mehajer since 2012, when officials at the Australian Electoral Commission noticed a large number of online and postal applications in the weeks leading up to the poll from people requesting to change their enrolment address to Auburn Council’s first ward, where he was standing as a candidate.
Further checks allegedly revealed that several dozen of the online applications had been submitted from a computer located at the Mehajer family’s home and another at their business address.
When AFP officers later raided Mehajer’s property at Lidcombe they located a printer that appeared to have the same security identifier as some posted application forms.
Phones were also seized that revealed text messages allegedly relating to the suspicious applications sent to the AEC.
A second part of the investigation focused on Mehajer’s close associates, who ran with him and his sister as group independent candidates.
Scrutiny of their candidate information sheets revealed they had been falsified to say they lived in Auburn, allowing them to run in the ballot as part of a group, police claim.
Mehajer’s group of six contained four people now charged as part of the investigation. His sister’s group of five contained two now charged.
As the head candidates of their respective groups, both Mehajer and his sister were given a box “above the line” on the ballot paper, putting them in a favourable position to earn votes. The vast majority of voters at that year’s council election — 77 per cent — voted by ticking a box above the line, according to AEC data.
While Fatima Mehajer was unsuccessful, her brother was elected to the fifth and final spot on council by more than 500 votes.
The brief of evidence for the investigation was served on the DPP for assessment in February, several months before Mehajer shot to notoriety with his lavish wedding.
The investigation, which has been running since August 2012, culminated with court notices being served on all eight people on December 9 and 10.
The others have been named as Jamal Elkheir, Fatima Kandil, Shi Lao, Abhinav Mehta, Arjun Mehta and Ahmad Trad.
“All eight are scheduled to appear in the Downing Centre on 2nd February,” an AFP spokeswoman said.
The Mehajers have each been charged with 76 counts of using forged documents and one each of using false or misleading documents.
The remaining six people have been charged with one count each of using false or misleading documents.
Mehajer responded to the allegations last night on behalf of his sister and his brother-in-law, saying the charges were false and motivated by a hidden agenda.
“Allegations will continue to grow in anticipation to tarnish us however, this will not in any way, shape or form, threaten us to step down,” he said.
“They are false and misleading with hidden agendas to bring us down. We shall remain focused on our roles and responsibilities.”
Eleven candidates ran across two groups in Auburn Council’s first and second ward. Group H was led by Salim Mehajer and had a total of six candidates running in the first ward.
Group G was led by Fatima Mehajer and had a total of five candidates running in the second ward.
Of these 11 candidates, eight were closely known to each other and have each been charged by the AFP.
Salim Mehajer – Facing charges of using forged documents to commit electoral fraud and producing false or misleading documents. Ran as lead candidate for Group H (first ward) in 2012 Auburn Council elections.
Fatima Mehajer – Salim’s sister. Ran as lead candidate for Group G (second ward) in 2012 Auburn Council election. She is facing the same charges as her brother. Salim’s sister. Ran as lead candidate for Group G (second ward) in 2012 Auburn Council election. She is facing the same charges as her brother.
Fatima Kandil – Salim’s school friend. Ran in Group H with Salim. Charged with producing false or misleading document.
Jamal Elkheir – Fatima’s husband, who ran beneath her in Group G in the 2012 Auburn Council election. He is Charged with producing false or misleading document.
Ahmad Trad – Fatima Mehajer’s ex-partner. Ran in Group H with Salim. Charged with producing false or misleading document.
Abhinav Mehta – Ran in Group G with Fatima. Charged with producing false or misleading document.
Arjun Mehta – Ran in Group H with Salim. Charged with producing false or misleading document.
Shi Lao – Salim’s school friend. Ran in Group H with Salim. Charged with producing false or misleading document.
Now the AFP have proven to be effective with election fraud investigation, can we expect this to continue into federal government election fraud?
Strictly speaking, and barring some rare, isolated cases, there is no electoral fraud in Australia if by that one means ‘illegal interference with an election process’. None of the defining instances of ‘electoral fraud’ is present in Australia — not intimidation, vote buying, misinformation, misleading or confusing ballot papers, ballot stuffing, mis-recording of votes, one million or more bogus names on rolls, compulsory voting, destruction or wrongful invalidation of ballots. And pigs are flying. It is ‘the electoral process’ itself which is fraudulent by engineered legislation to maintain the two party preferred duopoly.
