The farming industry’s beloved Liberal National Party is about to betray them again when Liberal MP Susan Ley will today introduce a private member’s bill into the Lower House that would ban live sheep exports to the Middle East during the northern hemisphere summer months in 2019 and close the sector down entirely in five years.
The last major double-cross for agriculture by the Liberals was in 1999 when PM John Howard introduced the Environment and Biosecurity Conservation Act which was the key for the states to introduce severe vegetation management laws.
How much more government intervention the industry can take is anyone’s guess but soon over-regulation will choke all primary industry to a standstill regardless of the political hue in Canberra.
The last bastion of neo-liberalism, the National Farmers Federation and Meat and Livestock Australia have committed their final Judas act by rolling over whenever pressure is applied by activists.
The traitorous ABC troll responsible for shutting down the live cattle export industry based on false and misleading television footage of Indonesian-bred cattle being mistreated by bribed abattoir workers is Susan Ferguson.
Coincidentally she is the wife of Q&A presenter and ALP sycophant Tony Jones.
Ferguson and the Animals Australia snake Lyn White aided and abetted by the ABC shut down the live cattle export trade overnight in 2011.
It is on the record these misguided, athiest animal rights activists indirectly caused a number of suicides across the agricultural sector.
As a consequence a group of cattle producers is suing the Federal Government for $600 million in compensation after live exports to Indonesia were banned by the Gillard administration.
Now it seems the trendsetters of the left division in the Liberal Party have joined in to support the Liberal backbencher’s anti-export bill.
Shadow Agriculture Minister Joel Fitzgibbon said Labor will lock in its support for what will be known as the Live Sheep Long Haul Export Prohibition Bill.
Livestock producers should be aware these fifth-columnists won’t stop with sheep. Those opposed to live export are rounding up their forces right now to shut down cattle exports. http://www.animalsaustralia.org/
These pagans believe animal rights take precedence over human lives in a similar fashion to the Queensland Labor Party and it seems the Liberals who continue to allow tourists and North Queensland inhabitants be torn apart by monstrous crocodiles.
The sheep meat industry and producers had better take a strong stand instead of simply rolling over as normal. If they leave it to the producer bodies they might as well hand the farm keys to the Chinese now.
What will their starving, urbanised grandchildren say?

Paying homage to non-existent blackfellas for ‘allowing an Anzac ceremony to be held on their land’ by the ALP Member for Cook, Cynthia Lui has upset RSL members and a part of the Mareeba audience.
Cairns News was contacted by ex-servicemen and an audience member attacking Mrs Lui and a Mareeba Shire Councillor for politicising what should have been a speech about those fallen soldiers, sailors and airmen who were being commemorated.
One returned serviceman, who did not wish to be named after ABC Radio beat up a story about a wrong wreath being placed on the cenotaph by Member for Kennedy Bob Katter, said he did not want to be harassed or misrepresented by ABC reporters.
“I am very upset about the local member and a councillor talking about thanking blackfellas for the use of their land who have no bearing upon this ceremony,” the ex-serviceman said.
“Since when is it their land?
“How dare the lunatic left of the Labor Party try to hijack an Anzac ceremony.”ends

Queensland farmers want to stick to their guns but the Labor infested public service has refused several hundred handgun licence renewals over the past 18 months causing many cases of animal cruelty.
Farmers need handguns, which have been a part of their tools-of-trade since the first sheep and cattle were offloaded at Botany Bay in 1788.
But the socialist Queensland Labor Party is denying them a licence to carry one even if a farmer has been licenced for 20 or more years without incident or a change in circumstances.
Should a farmer find a cow with a dead calf stuck in its uterus while giving birth and the cow is on its last gasp after the crows have pecked out its eyes and those of the calf, he has no option but to kill the cow. How? He is 20 klms from the house and the nearest rifle because he is on a horse or motorbike.
He could cut the cow’s throat with a pocket knife, that is if he is still allowed to carry one.
The LNP Opposition in 2011 helped outlaw pocket knives by voting with the ALP to ban them. Agforce was dead quiet about this one.
Once a farmer would take his revolver out of its holster and shoot the cow, being the most humane thing to do while appeasing the brain-dead Animals Australia and the RSPCA both of which refuse to provide midwives for Brahman cows.
There are a number of alternatives for hard-pressed farmers such as buying one of many anecdotal ‘hot’ handguns available on the black market or to inadvertently misplace the licenced pistol, which happens on occasion.
Katters Australia Party State leader Robbie Katter says he will step up the pressure on the Labor Party when Parliament resumes to force the ALP Marxists to instruct the Weapons Branch to renew all licences for farmers.Police Minister Comrade Ryan like his predecessor Captain Bill Byrne has a generational hatred of farmers as this new parliament will reveal.
There is palpable union and Labor animosity towards those on the land producing clean and green food for Queenslanders, which unfortunately includes the Labor Party. Agriculture will be in for a torrid time unless the KAP cross-bench can hold them at bay.
The ALP is skating on climate-changing, thin ice even though it has a two seat majority, thanks to an abundance of vote fraud and the ethnic welfare vote. Before the new parliament sits, the Member for Mulgrave and former Treasurer Curtis Pitt is about to be hauled before the powerful Ethics Committee after the LNP alleged he misled the last parliament by pushing through a sweetheart deal for the Tram and Bus Union. Pitt’s fate is up in the air.
Another alternative is for farmers to launch a Federal Court class action to lay bare the unlawful Australia Act 1986 and the alterations to the Queensland Constitution in 2001 by the political miscreant, Peter Beattie without a referendum.
Has anyone noticed since 2001 how Beattie, Bligh, Newman and Palaszczuk refer to “my government’. Does anyone remember giving the ‘government’ to an individual?
Beattie removed the Queen and installed the Premier as the new head of State for the corporate, Socialist Republic of Queensland.The legal mechanism used by the malcontent Beattie can be found in the record of proceedings in the Cairns Magistrates Court: Queensland Police –v- Walter, 2016, QP1700886562 QPS.
If farmers could actually band together for the common good just for once, the Federal Court would have little alternative but to find there is no criminal law in Queensland applying to those citizens outside of the political parties, just the common law which exists across the nation.

Chief Justice French in his speech “The Judicial Function in an Age of Statutes
“As with the common law, there are statutes in which broad terms are used which are capable of application to a wide range of fact situations.

Lui claims Cook but the ALP is not yet over the line
Anxious candidates across the state are awaiting the final counting of postal and absentee votes as ECQ staff work overtime to sort through the backlog.
One Nation, KAP and the LNP are waiting for the final tally to determine how many seats the ALP will have to form a majority.
The ALP has claimed the contentious seat of Cook stretching from Mareeba in the south to the PNG border in the north, however One Nation sources say the counting will not finish until Tuesday night when the final postal votes are counted.
The final postal and absentee numbers will have an impact on preference flows to the One Nation candidate Jen Sackley, who seems set to overtake the lead of the Labor candidate Cynthia Lui.
KAP candidate Gordon Rasmussen said either his preferences or those from the LNP would help One Nation get across the line.
“The staff at the Mareeba ECQ office have been outstanding with the counting and very helpful to scrutineers and I thank them for their great effort,” said Mr Rasmussen.
“Their integrity has never been in question but I am concerned about the reports of suspicious activities on Cape York Peninsula which happens after every election on the Cape.”

Election candidates, booth workers and scrutineers again have reported widespread corruption similar to that reported at the 2012 and 2015 state elections run by the dodgy Electoral Commission of Queensland.
Booth workers across the state claim the Labor Party and unions have infiltrated to ECQ to such an extent there is no possibility of this government department carrying out a state election to deliver a clean result.
In the Far North an onslaught against conservative political parties began in earnest at least eight weeks ago.
Many hundreds of election signs erected by party supporters were reported damaged or stolen from roadsides and private property. At an estimated cost of $8 for a corflute sign and $3 for a wooden stake, the financial loss to candidates was crippling.
Candidates have blamed the ALP and the crocodile lovers for the sign thefts. Cairns News hopes the croc shaggers and the militant Labor trench-coaters are soon devoured by the explosion of dangerous crocs infesting human habitats.
One Nation and Katters Australian Party were hard hit by sign thieves who struck in the middle of the night.
Booth workers across Cape York Peninsula reported ALP posters being left in polling booths at indigenous communities, ALP-aligned scrutineers accompanying indigenous voters into booths and actually filling out their ballot papers, with a lead pencil, naturally.
A Kowanyama booth worker reported Labor supporters telling indigenous voters on their way to the booth to vote only for the Labor candidate or they would lose their pensions and dole (sit down money).
Meanwhile we are advised the counting continues at the Cook electorate office where Labor candidate Cynthia Lui has a slim lead over One Nation candidate Jen Sackley and KAP candidate Gordon Rasmussen. This is occurring in spite of the questionable Bamaga ballot box being included in the count.
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
You can have your solar panels
and your turbines on the hills;
You can use the warmth of sunshine
to reduce your heating bills.
You can dream you’re self-sufficient
as you weed your vegie bed;
As long as you make sure to keep
A diesel in the shed.
by Viv Forbes, Science Writer
When I was a kid on a dairy farm in Queensland, we relied on green energy – horses and human muscles provided motive power; fire-wood and beeswax candles supplied heat and light; windmills pumped water and the sun provided solar energy for growing crops, vegies and pastures. The only “non-green” energy used was a bit of kerosene for the kitchen lamp, and petrol for a small Ford utility.
Our life changed dramatically when we put a diesel in the dairy shed. This single-cylinder engine drove the milking machines, the cream separator and an electricity generator, which charged 16 lead-acid 2 volt batteries sitting on the veranda. This 32 volt DC system powered a modern marvel – bright light, at any time, in every room, at the touch of a switch.
There were no electric self-starters for diesels in those days – just a heavy crank handle. But all that effort, noise and fumes were superseded when every house and dairy got connected to clean silent “coal power by wire”. Suddenly the trusty “Southern Cross” diesel engines disappeared from Australian sheds and dairies.
In just one life-time, candles and kerosene were replaced by diesel, which was then replaced by clean silent ever-ready electricity.
Today, after Aussies have enjoyed decades of abundant reliable cheap electricity from coal, green energy gambling has taken Australia back to the era which kept a diesel in the shed.
Tasmania is the greenest state in Australia. It once had a vibrant economy that created mines, saw-mills, farms, orchards, oil and metal refineries, dams, hydro-power and railways. It is now a green no-go land. Greens have stopped new hydro developments, opposed mining, crippled the timber industry, prevented new wood-chip developments and will probably celebrate when their last refinery closes.
Tasmanians get their electricity mainly from hydro assets created long ago by their more productive ancestors. But recently a long drought caused a shortage of Tasmanian hydro-energy – they became reliant for up to 40% of their electricity needs on the Bass-link undersea cable bringing electricity from reliable coal-fired stations in Victoria and NSW. However the overloaded Bass Link cable failed, and an old gas-powered station was brought back into service (importing gas from Victoria) to keep the lights on. Subsequently their politicians hurriedly put 150 diesel generators in their shed (costing A$11 million per month).
South Australia is the next greenest state in Australia, hosting about 35% of Australia’s wind turbines. These were force-fed into existence by mandatory green energy targets and tax benefits. In a burst of green destruction they also closed their gas-fired power stations and demolished their coal-fired station. However wind power failed recently and a storm tore down their life-line bringing reliable coal power from Victoria. Now Premier Weatherill is planning to install up to 200 megawatts of diesel generators in his shed. Many residents are following his lead.
As some wag said: Question: “What did South Australians have before candles?” Answer: “Electricity”.
The UK has been badly infected by the green energy virus. Engineers warned that this intermittent and unpredictable supply had increased the risk of blackouts, so the UK government offered subsidies for emergency backup power. This subsidy, plus consumer concerns, put so many diesels in British sheds that they now provide a major backup capacity for UK electricity.
Many Spaniards found a diesel in the shed was very profitable. Their government had been drinking green-ale and offered attractive subsidies for solar power produced. The subsidy was very successful – so successful that someone eventually noticed that some suppliers were even producing “solar” power at night. It was coming from diesels in their sheds.
Finally, our green media likes to feature some green energy enthusiast who is “off the grid”. But it usually emerges later in the show that there is a diesel in their shed too.
Those who remember the days of relying on a noisy smelly diesel in the shed have no wish to be dragged back there by green zealots.
Yesterday in Federal Parliament of Australia, KAP Member for Kennedy Bob Katter moved that majority foreign owned interactive gambling agencies be barred from operating in Australia.
Mr Katter moved an amendment to the Interactive Gambling Amendment Bill 2016 that any company that is majority foreign owned is not eligible for registration as a gambling agency in Australia.
Mr Katter said “I voted by myself on the amendment. At the present moment with gambling in Australia, the money is going overseas. I lived in an era where every single dollar (except if you went to a racecourse) — every single cent went into health services for the people. Now most of it is going overseas.
“If the proposition was put to people, do you want the money to go overseas or do you want it to go into health services for Australians, or to help our struggling retirees, or our single mothers trying to make ends meet with three children? I think 80 or 90 per cent of Australians would vote with me, yet I am regarded as the minority.”
The Bill Amendment is as follows:
Interactive Gambling Amendment Bill 2016
23B At the end of section 5
(4) Despite subsection (3), a gambling service covered by subsection (1) is a prohibited interactive gambling service if the service is provided by a person who is:
(a) an individual not resident in Australia; or
(b) a corporation that is majority foreign-owned.
