from Larry Pickering, the last surviving iconic commentator, journalist and cartoonist
It’s got me stuffed. Australians hardly ever pass changes in the law by ballot. They have on only 8 of 44 occasions, and although this survey is not a referendum, or even a plebiscite, the “survey” if successful, will lead to fully gazetted legislation. So why are 70 per cent of citizens going to vote yes? But is it really 70 per cent? Or is it really about the question the pollster asked?
More likely it is the question, a highly biased question designed to evoke only a “YES” answer: “Do you agree with marriage equality?”
That question will almost always get a “yes”, and the GGGGLL will ride a wave of confidence all the way to where they want it to finish… and where they want it to finish they dare not tell you.
I read the question on the survey paper and it asks if you want the Marriage Act changed to accommodate gay marriage. That is not what will happen if a “yes” vote gets up.
In fact the Marriage Act will be abolished completely and a new gender neutral Act will be drafted by the Gay Greens in the Senate, an Act that will please only the wind chime and bong manufacturers in the inner suburbs of Sydney and Melbourne, Byron Bay and South Australia all over.
Ex PM Howard is right when he says that we need to see the legislation first, http://pickeringpost.com/story/okay-mal-just-show-us-the-bloody-bill-/7542 but people are voting already and what’s to say the Gay Green Senate won’t make amendments we will never know about until they become law?
They will get no resistance from Turnbull as he wants the whole gay crap off the table and forgotten about. And so do we. We have energy prices and the Zika Kid to entertain us… we are sick and tired of listening to moaning gay people and Sky and ABC interviewers agreeing with them.
On another part of the survey sheet I read, “If you make a mistake just ask us to send you another form”. On another part is says the survey is 100 per cent anonymous, no names no addresses, no worries.
What a perfect set up for the devious and well-organised GetUp mob to easily skew the result. They will already have a dozen schemes in place.
The survey sheet is of such poor quality that any Asian printer could run off an undetectable few million. Any number of union-committed postmen could take every letter home or deliver them to GetUp’s hard-working gnomes who distance themselves from Shorten and Wong.
This postal survey seems almost designed to be scammed.
And the cherry on the top is when the Government makes temporary laws (that will of course stay in place) where opponents of this scam can be fined $12,500 with an adjudicator by the name of George Brandis at the helm. He alone will decide if you are guilty of offending the “YES” brigade.
What more do you need to vote “NO”?
Or maybe you believe GetUp is an honest political pressure group? Or Maybe North Korea is a pacifist group? Or banks don’t steal your money?
Maybe you really want these hairy arm-pitted, bare-titted sheilas and bare-arsed loony-tune, radical, pillow biters writing your marriage vows for you. If so, then vote “YES”.
But I don’t believe a “YES” vote will survive. If it does, we are not true-blue Australians. Because true-blue Aussies would never vote yes to something as full of holes and as deviously scammable as this.
A “YES” result could never be relied upon as even remotely accurate.
It’s more likely to be a “NO” result that CAN be relied upon because real Australians would never align themselves with a decadent, illegal mob like the Labor Green’s GetUp.
We are better than that,
GetUp Australia is billionaire George Soros’ puppet cult. It is one of the most dangerous pressure groups (naïve students and Greens disciples) in Australia today. Canada and Hungary right now are moving to ban all George Soros funded organisations in their countries. Soros backed and funded Hilary Clinton’s disastrous campaign to become US president. Soros has been found by US authorities to fund left-wing violent campaigns against Trump and the powerful firearms lobby.
Soros directly funded demonstrations to disrupt Trump’s inauguration and also contributed towards the ‘womens march’ in the US, attended by hairy armpitted, hairy legged, pseudo-intellectual, chardonnay-sipping left-wing feminists who hate men with a passion.Below is the latest tirade from the Bolsheviks of GetUp:
George Soros funds violent left-wing demonstrations, Hilary Clinton and GetUp Australia
Right-wing Senator Cory Bernardi just announced he’s leaving the Liberals to form his own ‘Australian Conservatives’ Party. Modelling himself on Donald Trump, Bernardi’s agenda is one of hate, climate destruction and increasing inequality. His policies hurt people. And he’s starting off with 50,000 followers and his “very close friend” Gina Rinehart, who joined Bernardi in meetings with Trump’s campaign team in New York.1 Like Trump, we can’t underestimate Bernardi or the damage he can do. We have a community of 1 million members, who proved last election we can take on the far right and win. If there’s any group of committed, passionate people who can counter Bernardi’s Trump-inspired politics of division, it’s us. But to keep countering that far right agenda, we need to fight harder and longer than any election campaign. That means more people joining the GetUp Crew — the team of GetUp supporters who make a regular donation to fund our collective power.
What will we do? Everything GetUp does best. We’re going to counter and frustrate Bernardi’s mining-backed right-wing agenda with bigger, deeper and more far-reaching campaigns — just like we did to stop Tony Abbott’s extreme agenda. We’ll hit the streets, airwaves and online. And we’ll counter his 50,000 followers with 1 million passionate GetUp members, like we’ve done time and again on the issues that matter. But we won’t stop there. We’ll also work with members to mobilise in their own communities, and get their neighbours and friends involved to organise for lasting, long-term change that combats hate and division with unity. And we’ll drive the political narrative with cutting-edge, media-grabbing policy research that takes back the agenda from Bernardi’s denial of science and fact. All to be backed in by the creative ads and viral videos that reach millions and stand out from the political pack.
Widespread false enrolments suspected in Canning
· Email by GetUP raises concerns about integrity of Electoral Roll
· 11,005 names added to Roll in 2 years, 4 times faster than national average
· AEC figures point to false enrolments and other Roll abuse as likely
Elections-monitoring group, Australians for Honest Elections (AFHE), is questioning the integrity of the Electoral Roll to be used for the Canning ByElection in the light of an email sent out by activist group GetUP to its supporters on 27 August:
“Here is our chance. A few hundred votes could tip the balance, and that’s when our movement is at its most powerful. But we need to act fast. We’re armed … [to] shift these key votes”.
“What key votes?” asks AFHE President Mr Lex Stewart. “Just what do they intend to do?”
According to AEC figures, the electoral roll for Canning gained 11,005 new names in two years, a 10.8 percent increase, compared to the national average growth rate of 1.37 percent per annum.
The Roll for Canning now contains 112,809 names, up from 101,804 names in the 2013 election.
“Where did all those extra names came from and how recently?” Mr Stewart asked.
Author and elections expert Dr Amy McGrath OAM has been researching vote frauds for years. In her 2013 book Wolves in Australia (pages 452-455) she warns about GetUP as follows:
“Given the intensity of far-left GetUP Campaigning in 3 past elections … a new bag of tricks called PlanningAlerts, … lists addresses of applications to local Councils for buildings being built, knocked down, or changing hands. PlanningAlerts is not as innocent as it sounds. … GetUP’s building lists provide possibilities for false enrolments faster than in the past … Such stacking of an Electoral Roll may be difficult to detect in that names roll-stacked are taken off shortly after the election. One case verified by the Australian Electoral Commission …”
”Might the Canning Roll be ‘padded’ with false names using GetUP’s lists of demolished/vacant buildings, or be padded with real names pretending to move like in Indi?” asks Mr Stewart.
“AFHE notes that in the WA Senate re-run it seems that thousands of real people from outside WA pretended to move to WA because the anomalous extra absentee/ postal votes for the Greens almost equalled the anomalous huge increase in the Roll, but the AEC did not enquire into that.”
“We hope the AEC is capable of detecting and rectifying Roll anomalies before 19 September.”
“Because afterwards, even if it becomes manifest that Rolls were bodgied with pretended transfer enrolments or false enrolments, then the Court of Disputed Returns is forbidden by a stupid law from looking at such,” said Mr Stewart.
“Section 361(1) of the Commonwealth Electoral Act states ‘assuming the Roll to be correct, shall not inquire into the correctness of the Roll’. Who else is going to enquire into the false/ pretend enrolments if the highest court in the land is forbidden by stupid law to do it?”
