To those who ignore the requirements of future generations — those who only think of themselves with no planning for the requirements of future generations:
You voted for politicians to treat your grandchildren’s future with contemptuous disinterest, to sell it out from under them.
Have you given any consideration of future generations survival requirements or are you too busy and self-centered to care?
AUSTRALIA THE WORLD’S QUARRY, what happens when there is none left?
What do your grandchildren do for “their” nations income and industry?
When all the oil, gas, copper, gold, precious metals needed in modern technology, and other minerals have been sold to China and others, how do your descendants survive?
How do they power their homes and industry?
How do they process and cook their food, as you did or as caveman did?
It requires energy to think, intelligence to formulate thoughts, and wisdom to put them into practice — do you have any of these requirements?
Or do you default to other’s thinking and instructions, instead of using your own?
You are the beginning of your children’s and their children’s future,
Will you make it a success for them?
Or by your own inaction let others destroy it?
You have a responsibility to those who walked before you to make your life of value, their sacrifices in war and backbreaking toil of their life’s work for a better world for you, to make your life of value.
What are you doing to continue their work for your children and grandchildren?
When did you take a little of your time to tell your local MP and Senator, what you want them to do for your children’s future?
Too much trouble for you to take time away from your sport, pub, and other interests?
By your inaction you default your thinking and direction to those of lesser intelligence who have no concern nor interest in your children’s future — only their own.
Are you one of those who stand tall and proud on ANZAC DAY — then wilt with disinterest and lack of concern for your children’s future the next day?
It took years of hard work to produce the great Australia we know today, it took less than a decade for ALP and Green politicians to allow mentally deranged religious terrorists into your community to kill you — then take billions of you taxes to protect you from them — taxes that should have been spent on education and health for your family.
Our pioneers, community, parents and defences personnel set a standard for Australia to live by — in a decade you have allowed these standards to be destroyed by social engineers, word warpers, gender benders, the offence industry, and the those unable to analyse common sense into reality.
It’s never too late – ‘IF’ you care for your children and Australia’s future.
Take a deep breath, stand on your feet and let that bit of ‘snake’ in you rise to the surface, go and take your local politician head-on — as you did opponents on the football field years ago — tell them and their pathetically complaint staff that put you correspondence to them in the rubbish bin — that you have had a gutful, that you demand a better standard, no more twisted words and sexual distortions, we are male or female — what you do with it does not change your sex.
Go back to a high standard of decency in the community teaching children basic subjects, English, Maths, Science — where factual history is taught and twisted, sanitised personal opinions in lieu of fact are banned — PROVE IT OR REMOVE IT, from teaching.
Everyone — it is up to us what direction our children and society goes forward into the future with. We must demand an improved standard from teachers, bureaucracy, politicians — or dissolve into a quagmire of confused nothing the Chinese are watching happen — as they let us destroy ourselves, making it easier for their planned invasion — it’s not far away.
They have control of land near every infrastructure, military establishment, ports, airports, parliaments, water supplies, roads, bridges, and power supplies — with permission of stupid state governments and prior federal governments — at least this federal government is taking action.
It has been revealed Chinese intention is to kill all defence personnel, politicians, community leaders, *non-productive people, and take ownership of your home with a bullet induced vacancy — as done in Tibet. *(Protestors note)
We provide them with all their construction and development material for their massive trillion-dollar military equipment, that will be attacking us in the future — have we gone mad?
Their biological weapons are well established, as detailed in ‘China Speaks’ by General Chi Haotain — Covid-19 was a test run to observe how it would cripple the West’s economy and military.
It provided the camouflage under the guise of Covid vaccination, to inoculation their population against the next one that will destroy Australia, the West and most of the world.
Then as detailed in ‘China Speaks’, “Only countries like the United States, Canada and Australia have the vast land to serve our need for mass colonization”, “Only by using special means to ‘clean up’ America will we be able to lead the Chinese people there. Only by using non-destructive weapons that can kill many people will we be able to reserve America for ourselves”. “It is indeed brutal to kill one or two hundred million Americans (and Australians). But that is the only path that will secure a Chinese century, a century in which the CCP leads the world”.
Israel’s Begin-Sadat Center for Strategic Studies – advises more than 40 Chinese facilities are involved in bio-weapon production. It is reported they have a successful vaccine for Ebola Virus, highly infectious and usually fatal , and many other gain-of-function chimeric viruses (Lab created viruses with fatal components of others genetically fused).
You either stop them now or they will end your children’s future — like they did to the slaughtered Tibetans and those in Tiananmen Square on 4 June1989, where they shot, killed and injured an estimated 10,000 students, then ran over the dead and dying with tanks pulping their bodies, then scraped their bodies into heaps and burnt them — because they dared to have a different opinion to the government — the same government our politicians and industry suck-up to for dollars.
In a secret cable to Britain (BBC), British ambassador to China, Sir Alan Donald reported:
“….. at least 10,000 people were killed”, “Students linked arms but were mowed down including soldiers. Armoured Personnel Carriers then ran over bodies time and time again to make ‘pie’ and remains collected by bulldozer. Remains incinerated and then hosed down drains”. “Four wounded girl students begged for their lives but were bayoneted.”

Quarries across Australia are stripping our non-renewable resources and our national heritage enabling our emerging enemy to make more steel and aluminium for its armaments which will eventually be used on us.
It’s somewhat ironical that Australians when ultimately forced into protecting our shores and the few resources we have left, will be killed by tanks, ships, munitions and explosives made from Australian iron ore and bauxite.
The political party duopoly has been beholden to China for decades and the basket case of Victoria is an outstanding example of Chinese influence over state governments and individual politicians from all parties. Bribes are a way of life.
Bribes paid to politicians and their parties are considered as an operating expense for the Communist Chinese government and is a normal business practice as we have seen in Victoria with Premier Dan Andrews’ Belt and Road project.
It begs the question as to the whereabouts of Premier ’Dangerous’ Dan Andrews, a communist sycophant who it is believed was bashed senseless and is supposedly in a Melbourne hospital.
Cairnsnews was told by a Victorian reporter it was strongly suspected Chinese interests gave him a touch up for not delivering on their invasive project designed to turn the state into a CCP satellite.
Recently, a nest of Chinese military operatives was flushed off Yam Island in the Torres Strait before they could get well established.
Cairnsnews has been told the brother of a Labor member of State Parliament was involved in the deal with the Chinese.
They had bribed an island inhabitant with a new boat, a car and other incentives in exchange for a house which they turned into a grocery shop and a base for 9 Oceans Fisheries, a shelf company owned by Chinese Nationals. The local council was unaware of the planned outpost.
None of the four Chinese men of military appearance and behavior, all being aged under 35 seemed to have any fishing experience and as none could speak English or the local language, had little chance of buying crayfish from local fishermen.
After federal MP Bob Katter in Parliament, exposed the plan to establish a CCP spy post right under the noses of authorities, the operatives were gone by the next day.
Treacherous Australian politicians and their political parties sold the country out long ago and one worrying deal involved former Prime Minister Bob Hawke in 2012.
As Prime MInister and in retirement Hawke became another Chinese asset with close ties to Australian governments. He brokered a deal between the West Australian government and the Chinese government to buy Stage 2 of the Ord River Irrigation Scheme.
“In 2012 the Chinese Shanghai Zhongfu group wanted to grow its own irrigated sugar cane in the $311m second-stage expansion of the Ord irrigation project.
To top off this farmer coup-de-grace, former Prime Minister Bob Hawke is acting as gigolo for a Chinese conglomerate offering to buy 15,000 hectares of prime farming country east of Kunnunurra in Western Australia.” (Cairnsnews April 2012)
The WA government accepted the Chinese deal in deference to 13 Australian companies and individual farmers who tendered for the project. Hawke’s commission on the Ord River sale was a reported $11 million.
It was widely suggested at the time WA politicians did extremely well. It seems since 2012 not much has changed while the LNP Federal Government falls over itself to sell China more of Australia and more of our non-renewable mineral resources.
The Queensland Labor Party allowed Anglo-Swiss mining giant Glencore to take over a former Chinese-owned mining lease several years ago and the miner has just done a deal with Mitsibushi Development to extract 357 million tonnes of bauxite from its Aurukun, Cape York site for sale on the international market.
The headlines resonated with 650 jobs in the offing as the $500m deal was done.
Why is Australia not developing our own non-renewable iron ore and bauxite deposits to make alumina and manufacture motor vehicles, aircraft, building materials and many other goods?
Rio Tinto has been mining bauxite at Weipa for 50 years but has not got the show to itself anymore. A new neighbour at Mapoon is Brisbane company Metro Mining which is about to restart its operation after the wet season.
Metro is a fly-in-fly out operation that provides a limited number of jobs for local indigenous workers and has most of its supplies shipped in by barge from the south. Like the Metro operation Glencore will provide little return for an economically ailing Cape York.
Federal and State Governments should be legislating for all miners on Cape York to contribute towards an entire new value-adding refining and smelting installation to be built near Weipa producing alumina ingots.
Instead of sending ingots to China from its Boyne Island smelter, which is under threat of closure, Rio should be restricting output and selling their entire production onshore to Australian industry for manufacturing vehicles, boats, aircraft and every other item that Australians pay through the nose from overseas factories.
Unfortunately senior politicians and their parties have become so compromised, as we have seen recent evidence of in federal and state parliaments, that the Deep State has prevented any sovereign manufacturing industry from starting again.
Australia the quarry, was confirmed by the compromised, alleged pedophile, PM Paul Keating when he said in 1994, “Australia is to become a service country only, and I can’t understand why anyone would want to live more than 100 klms inland from our shores….”
The Foreign Investment Review Board is now obviously influenced by Liberal or Labor politicians and should be abolished and replaced with a parliamentary committee including independents
A decision to grant a Chinese linked company a mining licence on a remote West Australian island, close to a military training area, is raising concerns inside Defence and federal government ranks.
- A Hong Kong-based company was last year granted a 12-year lease of abandoned mining operations on Cockatoo Island
- The Foreign Investment Review Board examined the deal, but security officials have privately expressed concerns
- Liberal Senator Concetta Fierravanti-Wells says the leasing to a Chinese linked company shows current laws are “defective”
In October, the private Hong Kong-based entity was announced as the new owner of abandoned iron ore operations on Cockatoo Island in WA’s Kimberley region, next to the Yampi Sound Defence Training Area.
Cockatoo Island is roughly 2000 kilometres from Perth and boasts an airstrip which was used to service past mining projects as well as a resort built by infamous businessman Alan Bond during the 1980s.
According to Western Australia’s Department of Mines registry the new lease approved last year for ‘Cockatoo Island Mining Pty Ltd’ will expire in 2032.
Cockatoo Island Mining’s directors say they want to “establish a world class and responsible mining operation, within an area that has demonstrated high-grade iron ore deposits,” after the previous owner went into administration in 2015.
Company documents submitted to the Australian Security and Investments Commission confirm directors of the Cockatoo Island Mining venture reside in Australia, India, Hong Kong as well as mainland China.
The ABC has confirmed the 2020 takeover was examined by the Foreign Investment Review Board (FIRB) but the deal has still alarmed some federal government figures who believe it is similar to the controversial lease of Darwin Port to a Chinese state-owned company.
Liberal Senator Concetta Fierravanti-Wells, who previously served as Minister for International Development and the Pacific, has told the ABC she is alarmed at the deal.
“The Cockatoo Island ‘transaction’ is yet another example of why acquisition of strategic assets from governments in Australia by ‘private companies’ with links to Beijing should come within the scope of both FIRB and foreign relation legislation.”
“This ‘transaction’ is another glaring example of our defective federal laws,” the NSW Senator argues.
Rio Tinto to expand autonomous fleet as part of $5 billion productivity drive
Rio Tinto will expand its fleet of autonomous haul trucks at its world-class iron ore operations in the Pilbara by more than 50 per cent by 2019 after signing agreements with leading manufacturers Caterpillar Inc. and Komatsu Ltd. to convert traditional trucks to autonomous vehicles.
A total of 29 Komatsu haul trucks will be retrofitted with Autonomous Haulage System (AHS) technology starting next year. The project at the Brockman 4 operation is scheduled for completion by mid-2019, allowing the mine to run entirely in AHS mode once fully deployed.
A further 19 Caterpillar haul trucks at the Marandoo mine will also be retrofitted starting mid-2018 for completion by the end of 2019. The retrofit is significant for Rio Tinto as it marks the first time AHS technology has been deployed by the company on Caterpillar haul trucks.
Once completed, the retrofit projects are expected to make a significant contribution toward Rio Tinto’s $5 billion productivity programme, helping to underpin the continued delivery of superior returns for shareholders.
Rio Tinto Iron Ore chief executive Chris Salisbury said “We are excited to be starting a new chapter in our automation journey with a valued long-term partner in Caterpillar and we are proud to be extending our successful partnership with Komatsu on this world-first retrofitting initiative.
“Rapid advances in technology are continuing to revolutionise the way large-scale mining is undertaken across the globe. The expansion of our autonomous fleet via retrofitting helps to improve safety, unlocks significant productivity gains, and continues to cement Rio Tinto as an industry leader in automation and innovation.
“We are studying future additions to our autonomous fleet in the Pilbara, based on value, to help deliver our share of $5 billion of additional free cash flow for the company by 2021.
“Rio Tinto is committed to working closely with our workforce as we transition to AHS including providing opportunities for new roles, redeployment, retraining and upskilling.”
Automation is helping to improve productivity and efficiencies across Rio Tinto’s operations in the Pilbara. The retrofit programme will assist the iron ore business in delivering an additional $500 million of free cash flow annually from 2021. As part of this initiative Rio Tinto is increasing scrutiny of each and every one of our cost components and have so far aggregated more than 3500 employee ideas in the company’s productivity pipeline, many of which will deliver cost benefits.
Last year, on average, each of Rio Tinto’s autonomous haul trucks operated an additional 1000 hours and at 15 per cent lower load and haul unit cost than conventional haul trucks. About 20 per cent of the existing fleet of almost 400 haul trucks in the Pilbara is AHS-enabled. Following the completion of the projects with Komatsu and Caterpillar, Rio Tinto will have more than 130 autonomous trucks, representing about 30 per cent of the fleet.
From a safety perspective, automation has been shown to reduce the number of people exposed to potential hazards as well as reduce the number of critical risk scenarios.
Autonomous haul trucks, locomotives and drilling systems
Komatsu, founded in 1921, has established a leading international market position in the areas of construction and mining equipment as well as industrial machinery. Rio Tinto has been partnering with Komatsu, using their advanced truck technology at our mines, for 20 years.
In September, Rio Tinto and Komatsu deployed the world’s first retrofitted Komatsu autonomous haul truck at our Hope Downs 4 operation.
Rio Tinto’s relationship with Caterpillar extends over 50 years. Caterpillar was founded in 1925 and is an industry leading manufacturer of construction and mining equipment, diesel and natural gas engines as well as gas turbines and diesel-electric locomotives.
AHS allows trucks to be operated by a supervisory system and a central controller, rather than a driver. It uses pre-defined GPS courses to automatically navigate haul roads and intersections and knows actual locations, speeds and directions of all vehicles at all times.
Rio Tinto started deploying autonomous technology in 2008. The iron ore business also operates six fully Autonomous Drill Systems (ADS) to drill production blast holes.
Rio Tinto’s ran its first fully autonomous heavy haul train in September 2017, completing a 100-kilometre pilot run without a driver on board. AutoHaul® is on track for completion by the end of 2018, making it the world’s first fully-autonomous heavy haul, long distance rail network.
The Perth Operations Centre is the nerve centre of Rio Tinto’s autonomous operation with around 400 people monitoring our Pilbara operations in real time.
