The Rudd Government allowed 120,000 refugees of unknown origin to enter Australia by air
from The Horn News
Just before he was fired, FBI Director James Comey dropped a truth bomb on the floor of the U.S. Senate: President Donald Trump was right.
Our broken refugee policy is killing us.
Accepting refugees from the Middle East has let hundreds of would-be terrorists enter the United States, he told the Senate last Wednesday.
Comey testified that the FBI was investigating at least 2,000 terrorists nationwide – and about 15 percent of them got into the United States by posing as “refugees.”
“You take that 2,000-plus cases, about 300 of them are people who came to the United States as refugees,” he told North Carolina Senator Thom Tillis.
One Muslim terrorist killed 49 people in Orlando. Two pulled off the shootings in San Bernardino. And 18 managed to kill about 3,000 people on 9/11. Who knows how much damage 300 could do?
Comey said the terrorists are everywhere – no corner of America is safe. The terror investigations include all 50 states, including small communities.
Immigration officials were amazed in 2011, when they found two al-Qaeda terrorists living in the U.S. after posing as “refugees.” The Muslim terrorists – who had killed American soldiers in Iraq – had settled in Bowling Green, Kentucky. One of them was living in government housing on the taxpayers’ dime. The FBI recorded them planning a “huge” attack in the U.S.
As bad as that is, the problem’s actually worse –- much worse. The refugee terrorist problem is even bigger than the numbers let on. The 2,000 FBI investigations include everybody suspected of terrorism, from the Ku Klux Klan to Barack Obama’s old buddies in the Weather Underground.
A lot of those terrorists are Americans. That means refugees make up an even bigger percentage of immigrant terrorists than the government wants to let on.
That wasn’t even the most shocking part of Comey’s testimony. He said that if Donald Trump’s travel ban had been in effect, it would have kept all of these potential terrorists from ever setting foot in the United States.
Comey testified that every single one of those 300 refugees came from the seven Muslim nations Trump wanted to place under a temporary immigration ban: Iran, Iraq, Libya, Somalia, Sudan, Syria, and Yemen.
But instead, left-wing judges have struck down both his executive orders. Now, the floodgates are open.
The United States has admitted more than 5,500 refugees from these seven Muslim countries since Donald Trump has been president – more than 50 a day. How many of these will end up under investigation for terror?
The Hate Trump crowd doesn’t care. It considers spiting Trump more important than protecting their own country. And they seem to live in an alternate reality when it comes to terrorism.
Senator Chuck Schumer said Trump’s executive order “makes us less safe, not more. It is mean-spirited, and un-American.” 800 diplomats signed a cable to Secretary of State Rex Tillerson in February saying a refugee ban would make America less safe.
Not to be outdone, the United Nations issued a report saying that tough immigration measures “may in fact be damaging to state security.”
That would be news to countries that have admitted refugees in massive numbers, like most of Europe. ISIS used the refugee crisis to infiltrate the continent and kill the infidel.
Last summer, there were three separate attacks by refugees inside Germany within a week – two of them on the same day.
ISIS managed to get its murderers into Paris by posing as refugees. The November 2015 Paris attacks left 130 people dead.
And not all the terrorists were refugees – some of them just used the refugee chaos to help cover their tracks. One of the people who planned the Brussels bombing last March was a Swedish-born Muslim of Syrian heritage. Swedish police knew he was a radical. But he eluded them by slipping into Greece and re-entering Europe as a “refugee.”
The Brussels bombing killed 32 people.
Trump’s executive order would have kept at least 300 potential terrorists out of the country – but experts say it’s not really enough to keep us safe. We need a much tougher policy.
“Better, tougher, more thorough vetting isn’t likely to make any difference since refugees really are pretty thoroughly vetted,” wrote immigration reformer Mark Krikorian wrote in National Review. “The problem is that vetting people from failed or enemy states is impossible.”
Donald Trump would have bought a little time to figure out how to deal with that problem. But the “resistance” shot even that down.
If one of these murderers pulls off their terrorist intentions, the PC liberals will have the blood of Americans on their hands.
Trump – and Comey – tried to warn them.
Islam is a total system of life
Here is a perspective by Dr. Peter Hammond. Dr. Hammond’s doctorate is in Theology. He was born in Capetown in 1960, grew up in Rhodesia and converted to Christianity in 1977.
Adapted from Dr. Peter Hammond’s book: “Slavery, Terrorism and Islam: The Historical Roots and Contemporary Threat” – Islam is not a religion, nor is it a cult. In its fullest form, it is a complete, total, 100% system of life.
Islam has religious, legal, political, economic, social, and military components. The religious component is a beard for all of the other components.
Islamization begins when there are sufficient Muslims in a country to agitate for their religious privileges. When politically correct, tolerant, and culturally diverse societies agree to Muslim demands for their religious privileges, some of the other components tend to creep in as well.
Here’s how it works:
As long as the Muslim population remains around or under 3% in any given country, they will be for the most part be regarded as a peace-loving minority, and not as a threat to other citizens. This is the case in:
United States — Muslim 2%
Australia — Muslim 2.5%
Canada — Muslim 2.8%
Norway — Muslim 2.8%
China — Muslim 2.9%
Italy — Muslim 2.5%
At 3% to 8%, they begin to proselytize from other ethnic minorities and disaffected groups, often with major recruiting from the jails and among street gangs.
This happening in:
Denmark — Muslim 5%
Germany — Muslim 6.7%
United Kingdom — Muslim 7.7%
Spain — Muslim 8%
Thailand — Muslim 7.6%
From 8% on, they exercise an inordinate influence in proportion to their percentage of the population. For example, they will push for the introduction of halal (clean by Islamic standards) food, thereby securing food preparation jobs for Muslims. They will increase pressure on supermarket chains to feature halal on their shelves — along with threats for failure to comply.
This is occurring in:
France — Muslim 12%
Philippines — 9%
Sweden — Muslim 8%
Switzerland — Muslim 8.3%
The Netherlands — Muslim 8.5%
Trinidad& Tobago — Muslim 10.8%
At this point, they will work to get the ruling government to allow them to rule themselves (within their ghettos) under Sharia, the Islamic Law. The ultimate goal of Islamists is to establish Sharia law over the entire world.
When Muslims approach 15% of the population, they tend to increase lawlessness as a means of complaint about their conditions.
In Paris, we are already seeing car-burnings. Any non-Muslim action offends Islam, and results in uprisings and threats, such as in Amsterdam, with opposition to Mohammed cartoons and films about Islam.
Such tensions are seen daily, particularly in Muslim sections, in:
Guyana — Muslim 15%
India — Muslim 19.4%
Israel — Muslim 16%
Kenya — Muslim 18%
Russia — Muslim 21%
After reaching 25%, nations can expect hair-trigger rioting, jihad militia formations, sporadic killings, and the burnings of Christian churches and Jewish synagogues, such as in:
Ethiopia — Muslim 32.8%
At 40%, nations experience widespread massacres, chronic terror attacks, and ongoing militia warfare, such as in:
Bosnia — Muslim 40%
Chad — Muslim 53.1%
Lebanon — Muslim 59.7%
From 60%, nations experience unfettered persecution of non- believers of all other religions (including non-conforming Muslims), sporadic ethnic cleansing (genocide), use of Sharia Law as a weapon, and Jizya, the tax placed on infidels, such as in:
Albania — Muslim 70%
Malaysia — Muslim 60.4%
Qatar — Muslim 77.5%
Sudan — Muslim 70%
After 80%, expect daily intimidation and violent jihad, some State-run ethnic cleansing, and even some genocide, as these nations drive out the infidels, and move toward 100% Muslim, such as has been experienced and in some ways is on-going in:
Bangladesh — Muslim 83%
Egypt — Muslim 90%
Gaza — Muslim 98.7%
Indonesia — Muslim 86.1%
Iran — Muslim 98%
Iraq — Muslim 97%
Jordan — Muslim 92%
Morocco — Muslim 98.7%
Pakistan — Muslim 97%
Syria — Muslim 90%
Tajikistan — Muslim 90%
Turkey — Muslim 99.8%
United Arab Emirates — Muslim 96%
100% will usher in the peace of ‘Dar-es-Salaam’ — the Islamic House of Peace.. Here there’s supposed to be peace, because everybody is a Muslim, the Madrassas are the only schools, and the Koran is the only word, such as in:
Afghanistan — Muslim 100%
Saudi Arabia — Muslim 100%
Somalia — Muslim 100%
Yemen — Muslim 100%
Unfortunately, peace is never achieved, as in these 100% states the most radical Muslims intimidate and spew hatred, and satisfy their blood lust by killing less radical Muslims, for a variety of reasons.
‘Before I was nine I had learned the basic canon of Arab life. It was me against my brother; me and my brother against our father; my family against my cousins and the clan; the clan against the tribe; the tribe against the world, and all of us against the infidel. — Leon Uris, ‘The Haj’
It is important to understand that in some countries, with well under 100% Muslim populations, such as France, the minority Muslim populations live in ghettos, within which they are 100% Muslim, and within which they live by Sharia Law. The national police do not even enter these ghettos. There are no national courts, nor schools, nor non-Muslim religious facilities. In such situations, Muslims do not integrate into the community at large. The children attend madrassas. They learn only the Koran. To even associate with an infidel is a crime punishable with death.
Therefore, in some areas of certain nations, Muslim Imams and extremists exercise more power than the national average would indicate.
Today’s 2 billion Muslims make up 28% of the world’s population. But their birth rates dwarf the birth rates of Christians, Hindus, Buddhists, Jews, and all other believers. Muslims will exceed 50% of the world’s population by the end of this century.
Remember a vote for the Liberals, ALP or Greens is a vote for Islam
By Robert J Lee in Canberra
The Liberal and Labor parties are terrified by the extent of the Muslim vote in Australia, particularly in NSW and Victoria.
The Pickering Post last year reported the Muslim bloc vote across both states could affect the outcome of a federal election.
Up to 15 per cent of the primary vote in 15 seats is controlled by the Muslim community and Defence Minister Christopher Pyne’s recent reaction, denigrating Pauline Hanson for her comments about stopping immigration from Muslim countries reveal how scared the Liberals are of offending Islam.
Independent Member for the Far Northern seat of Kennedy, Bob Katter has a bill prepared to do just what Hanson is frightening the Liberals and Labor about.
Katter’s bill is modelled on US President Donald Trump’s controversial anti-Muslim immigration bill that would stop residents of identified Islamic countries from entering Australia.
It will be tabled in the House of Representatives in May.
The Vaucluse vacuum, Prime Minister Malcolm Turnbull fares no better. His continued public support for Islamic citizens in Australia, more so those in Liberal-held electorates, demonstrates the extent of his fear.
Turnbull wants to continue with the importation of 12,000 ‘refugees’ from Islamic countries, in spite of 500 so far having been rejected on security grounds.
The religion of these ‘refugees’ remains largely unknown, a little bit like the section of the Australian Census form asking for religious status.
The Liberal Party seems oblivious to 80 per cent of Australians rejecting the UN-orchestrated immigration plan, to further inject a large number of Muslim ‘refugees’ into a once homogenous society.
Like a broken record Turnbull, at every opportunity claims Australia is the most successful ‘multicultural country in the world.’
This is correct in part thanks to the ‘White Australia’ policy that ensured the majority of immigrants from the 1950’s to the late 70’s originated from European countries.
Turnbull’s claim has not been relevant since the early 1980’s coincidental with the corrupt regime of the infamous Labor Prime Minister Bob Hawke, whom Australia has to thank for the ethnic ghettos of Sydney and Melbourne accompanied by rampant gangland crime.
To expect Muslims or any other person to truthfully reveal their religious ideology is a pipe dream of the Bureau of Statistics. It is easy to mark in ‘Christian’ without fear of checks or balances.
Thus the number of real Muslims living in Australia is anybody’s guess although the ABS claims there are roughly 500,000.
In 2014-15, of the total of 13,756 humanitarian migrants:
- 2,335 were from Iraq
- 2,232 were from Syria
- 1,813 were from Afghanistan and
- 331 were from Iran.
These four majority Muslim countries made up 48.8% of the humanitarian intake. (source Business Insider)
During the 2007-13 Rudd-Gillard-Rudd era of Prime Ministership an estimated 120,000, mainly Muslim refugee immigrants entered Australia by air. It is believed most of these immigrants remained in the country, in addition to the normal immigrant inflow.
Australia’s immigration policy does not discriminate on the grounds of ethnic origin or religion.
Perhaps we should ask the United Kingdom or France how many radical Muslims does it take to make a bomb or drive a car?

Islam strikes again
Letter to the Editor
I had to pick something up from Grays Online at Lidcombe yesterday and on the way back we called into Maccas on the corner of Parramatta Rd and Silverwater Rd.
I got a Quarter Pounder and my wife got some Crispy Chicken, BLT Burger (Bacon, Lettuce, Tomato) the crispy was some rectangular things like corn chips but her bacon was cold and sort of pale and watery. When she questioned it at the counter and said the bacon should be cooked and a bit crispy, she was informed that they now do the bacon in the microwave because if they put it on the grill it would contaminate the other meats and they would lose their HALAL Certification. She then said,
“So I can’t have it how we have eaten it all our lives because this minority say it offends them?” The only reply was a shrug of the shoulders and a comment that this was a HALAL Store.
It seems that even the mighty Maccas have bowed to the Muslim Halal Beast. So next time you get a burger from Maccas and wonder why the bacon doesn’t taste right, you’ll know that it was thawed out and heated up in the microwave because it offends less that 3% of the population, (according to Google) and they want to keep their Halal Certification.
I guess that scratches Maccas off my food list. Maybe a good thing and I’ll lose some weight.
From Donald in Sydney
14 February 2017: Today KAP Member for Kennedy, Bob Katter delivered a Question without Notice in Question Time to the Minister for Communications about the $5.6m pay packet for the CEO of Australia Post – Ahmed Fahour.
Mr Katter’s Question raised Mr Fahour’s pay; the cost of postage doubling to $1 a letter; and the $2.8m pre-tax donation it is reported that Australia Post “mutually agreed” to give to the Islamic Museum of Australia, founded by Ahmed Fahour’s brother Moustafa Fahour, when in the same year 900 Australia Post staff were sacked. Mr Katter asked the Minister for Communications:
“Australia Post’s CEO pre-corporatisation received $360,000, Ahmed Fahour the current CEO enjoys $5.6 million.
France’s Postal Services CEO receives $1m whilst the United States CEO only $550,000.
Pre Fahour stamps cost 50c; now $1.
Minister, no more Christmas cards.
In 2014 Australia Post sacked 900 staff. In the same year, Mr Fahour’s Australia Post donated $2.8m to his brother’s Islamic Museum.
In light of Ahmed’s Australia Post’s generosity, Minister, could I get $30,000 to repair the Catholic Church in Julia Creek?”
On appointment in 2010 Mr Fahour was paid $2,086,710. This salary package has almost tripled in 6 years to $5.6m.
Mr Katter has highlighted exorbitant CEO pay as a consequence of privatisation and deregulation; and it is not limited to Australia Post.
“The case was strongly pleaded by Lance Hockridge, to privatise Queensland Rail. Mr Hockridge was the then CEO and as a senior public servant would have been on around $250,000 a year. Within a few years after privatisation he was reported to be paying himself a package in excess of $6m a year, for exactly the same job.
“According to the Australian and the Daily Telegraph with one article titled ‘Happy Dragon’, assuming these stories are accurate, it would mean Gail Kelly had received $77m in 8 years, between 2002-2009. “Happy Dragon indeed, but where is St George?” Mr Katter asked.
“Sol Trujillo for little more than 3.5 years at Telstra was paid $40m. Ben Butler at the Courier Mail said ‘complaints had a 241% increase in three years during Trujillo’s reign at Telstra’. Before he arrived at Telstra share prices were $5, when he left they were $3.
“Piketty in his landmark book, stated clearly that the world’s wealth now is going to the managerial class, which effectively sets their own wages. He makes the point that 100 years ago the world’s wealth was going to the owner class, the Carnegies, the Fords, the Rockefellers. People who risked their own money and built the motor vehicle industry, the steel industry, the American railways industry.
“It is now going to a class of people that really produce nothing. Particularly in Australia’s case they simply cut workforce numbers and send the jobs overseas. Then pay themselves an extra $1m a year for closing down an Australian industry. “They cry out for foreign investment, which of course means CEOs pay themselves increasingly more. Until now we reach the point where the only thing we export are jobs.
“Essington Lewis who created the biggest company on earth BHP, an Australian company, when he died he had an estate of $1.7m. In today’s terms an estate worth a measly $2.4m, which would not buy you a decent home in Sydney today.
“Essington Lewis, Les Thiess (coal), Lang Hancock (iron ore), Laurence Hartnett (motor vehicles) all died with very little money. Their riches were in another treasure chest which, please god, they are enjoying now.
“Their riches were what they gave to their fellow Australians. That was how those men measured their wealth”, Mr Katter said.
Islam could reign supreme in the US according to these statistics compiled by an astute American reader from Illinois. Obama has long been accused of being a closet Muslim and Trump’s inauguration speech certainly left the US people in no doubt he will deal with crazed Islamics across the world. His immediate problem will be eradicating IS operatives in the US. Germany has more then one million imported Islamics and the German identity and culture according to German researchers, will be lost within 20 years. France is in the same boat. With this startling evidence staring the Australian duopoly government in the face, Prime Minister Turnbull vows to bring in another 15,000 refugees from Islamic countries.
- All of a sudden, Islam is taught in schools. Christianity and the bible are banned in schools.
- All of a sudden we must allow prayer rugs everywhere and allow for Islamic prayer in schools, airports and businesses.
- All of a sudden we must stop serving pork in prisons.
- All of a sudden we are inundated with law suits by Muslims who are offended by American culture.
- All of a sudden we must allow burkas to be worn everywhere even though you have no idea who or what is covered up under them.
- All of a sudden Muslims are suing employers and refusing to do their jobs if they personally deem it conflicts with Sharia Law.
- All of a sudden the Attorney General of the United States vows to prosecute anyone who engages in “anti-Muslim speech”.
- All of a sudden, Jihadists who engage in terrorism and openly admit they acted in the name of Islam and ISIS, are emphatically declared they are NOT Islamic by our leaders and/or their actions are determined NOT to be terrorism, but other nebulous terms like ‘workplace violence.”
- All of a sudden, it becomes Policy that Secular Middle East dictators that were benign or friendly to the West, must be replaced by Islamists and the Muslim Brotherhood.
- All of a sudden our troops are withdrawn from Iraq and the middle east, giving rise to ISIS.
- All of a sudden, America has reduced its nuclear stockpiles to 1950 levels, as Obama’s stated goal of a nuke-free America by the time he leaves office continues uninterrupted.
- All of a sudden, a deal with Iran must be made at any cost, with a pathway to nuclear weapons and HUNDREDS of BILLIONS of dollars handed over to fund their programs.
- All of a sudden America APOLOGIZES to Muslim states and sponsors of terror worldwide for acts of aggression, war and sabotage THEY perpetrate against our soldiers.
- All of a sudden, the American Navy is diminished to 1917 Pre-World War I levels of only 300 ships. The Army is at pre-1940 levels. The Air Force scraps 500 planes and planned to retire the use of the A-10 Thunderbolt close air support fighter. A further draw down of another 40,000 military personnel is in progress.
- All of a sudden half of our aircraft carriers are recalled for maintenance by Obama rendering the Atlantic unguarded, NONE are in the Middle East.
- All of a sudden Obama has to empty Guantanamo Bay of captured Jihadists and let them loose in Jihad-friendly Islamic states. He demands to close the facility.
- All of a sudden America will negotiate with terrorists and trade FIVE Taliban commanders for a deserter and Jihad sympathizer.
- All of a sudden there is no money for American poor, disabled veterans, jobless Americans, hungry Americans, or displaced Americans but there is endless money for Obama’s “Syrian refugee” resettlement programs.
- All of sudden there is an ammunition shortage in the USA.
- All of a sudden, the most important thing for Obama to do after a mass shooting by two Jihadists, is disarm American Citizens.
- All of a sudden, the President of the United States cannot attend the Christian Funerals of a Supreme Court Justice and a former First Lady because of previous (seemingly unimportant) commitments.
- All of a sudden the President of the United States won’t attend the funeral of a flag-rank Officer (Gen. Greene) killed in action; he played golf. But he sends a big delegation to Michael Brown’s funeral. He sends a minor delegation to Margaret Thatcher’s funeral. He won’t acknowledge Chris Kyle’s murder but he’ll fly the Flag at half mast for Whitney Houston.
- All of a sudden, I’m sick to my stomach. I’m not sure the majority of Americans recognize the seriousness of the situation and how much “progress” has been made by Islam these last 7 years, a very brief time compared to a 75 year lifetime!-contributed by a US reader

Many of us came from convict backgrounds, sent in to exile for stealing a coat or a loaf of bread or a silver spoon. Some came for murder and robbery or prostitution. Tough people. Many came from China to work on the Gold Fields. Some came from Italy to work on the Snowy Mountains Hydro-Electricity scheme. Some came from Hungary during the Revolution. Some came from Vietnam during the Vietnam War. But they came for a chance to work and start a new life.
And they worked hard !! The Greeks, Serbs, and Irish, so many more that it would be impossible to name. There were no hand-outs, no privileges offered. These people were given a chance to start a new life, in Australia, to become Australians. And Australians they became. They learned English and embraced our country while offering the gift of their food and culture and music. We accepted that gift and sat together at the same table and laughed and drank their wine, ate their food, danced to their music and married and loved their people. As they did us. I have spoken with friends from Hungarian, Italian etc, backgrounds and, while they embrace and celebrate their roots, they consider themselves Australian. The common denominator with this terrible situation that we find ourselves in is that our current immigrant population do not want to embrace our culture but to destroy it. They do not want to learn our language, but to annihilate it. They do not want to work but to get us to work for them.
When our feminists ignore the genital mutilation, oppression of women, rape of little children of both sexes, we have a problem. When our Politicians condemn an elected member of the Dutch Parliament for coming to Australia to speak his views, we have a problem. When Australians are callously-murdered in cold blood by immigrants of any Nationality, Religion or Race and our Government offers sympathy to the family of the perpetrator of the crime before offering sympathy to the family of the victim, then we have a problem. When Australians are living below the poverty line and have nowhere to live while immigrants of any Nationality, Religion or Race are prioritised, then we have a problem. When 16,000 English-speaking skilled-professional workers are refused visas and 12,000 uneducated, non-English speaking refugees are accepted, then, guess what, we have a problem. When Australians are called racists and bigots for speaking out about their concerns about the above, then again, we as a Nation, have a problem. When people prefer to debate the best bachelor or best contestant on X Factor to debating our Nation’s future, our children’s future and our grandchildren’s future, well, you got it, we have a problem. When our news is censored and we have to delve in to the internet to find out what is happening in the world and in our own country, dare I say, we have a problem.
The one thing that sets Australia apart from almost any other Nation on Earth is the Aussie spirit. It can be seen as a “she’ll be right mate” attitude that suggests apathy; or “she’ll be right mate” because we will take care of it. I went and saw “Bridge of Lies” yesterday and it is well worth the watch. The Berlin Wall was put up to separate two different Political views. It was a physical wall.
Today, we have a wall being built in Australia.
It is not made of bricks and mortar. It is made of censorship, Political Correctness and insidious manipulation through media control, Acts of Parliament and Social media trolls.
There is no razor wire, no watch towers. Just the ability to call someone a racist. I am reminded of the words in the old childhood saying: “Sticks and Stones may break my bones – but words will never hurt me.”
Well today, apparently words can hurt you, but only if you live on the side of the wall that our Government and Politicians have elected as the “right” side of the wall. No longer are people in Australia even able to scale a wall. Bullets are not needed.
To shoot us down, all that is needed is to call us racists or bigots.
I am hoping that the Aussie “she’ll be right mate” translates to “don’t worry, we will take care of it” and rise up and say that this is our country Friends, this is not a Refugee crisis.
This is an Australia Crisis.
I fear that it will be too late if something does not happen while we still have enough Aussies left. – Larry Pickering
Yanner nearly jailed for an attack on a woman in 1997
Aboriginal activist Murrandoo Yanner yesterday verbally abused One Nation leader Pauline Hanson accusing her of being a racist and telling her she was not welcome at the indigenous art show she visited in Cairns.
Yanner, whose Christian name is Jason, comes from the Gulf community of Doomagee near Burketown and like Hanson is no stranger to controversy.
Indigenous industry sources have told Cairns News Yanner converted to Islam about 10 years ago which explains his vile attack. https://www.facebook.com/PaulineHansonAu/videos/492107537660230/
Hanson laughed it off, later releasing a Facebook clip asking Yanner to stand with her against the corruption in various land councils and in government.
Yanner is regarded as a thug among some of his own people and his outburst will win him no friends within the wider Aboriginal community and certainly none at all in the white community.
A Traditional Owner and elder from Cairns called Yanner a “…disgrace, and our community will not tolerate this attack on a woman.”
Murrandoo Jason Yanner, regarded as a thug among the wider Aboriginal community verbally assaults Pauline Hanson at an art show.
Yanner was given a suspended jail sentence by a Mt Isa court over his role in a vicious pub brawl. The Court of Appeal found Yanner’s sentence should be increased, ordering he be jailed for 18 months, but wholly suspended the sentence for a period of four years.
The Attorney General had appealed a Mt Isa District Court sentence in which Yanner was placed on community-based orders.
However, in a split decision, one of the three appeal court judges, Chief Justice Paul de Jersey, found Yanner should actually serve time in jail – recommending an 18-month sentence suspended after six months, with an operational period of four years.
“There is no doubt in my mind that Murrandoo Yanner should be actually imprisoned,” Justice de Jersey said in his written judgment.
“His substantial episode of unprovoked vicious and brutal thuggery involved as many as four innocent victims, people who were thereby both physically injured and emotionally traumatised.”
Yanner and his young brother, Bruce Lee Yanner, 21, were involved in the fight outside the Burketown Hotel in May 1997. Yanner had pleaded guilty in the Mt Isa District Court to three charges of assault causing bodily harm and one of assault causing bodily harm in company, over attacks on a woman, a Telstra worker and a male nurse.
