Shocking new abortion laws supported by the Labor Member for Cook, Cynthia Lui in 2018 that allow a medical practitioner to abort a living foetus at 37 weeks have been aired on radio ads running across the state and paid for by the ‘Put Labor Last’ group.
On October 17, 2018 the Termination of Pregnancy Act was passed. The legislation allows a late term foetus to be terminated until birth at 37 weeks. Aborting this living child amounts to murder.
Cynthia Lui hails from Yam Island in the Torres Strait where traditional custom does not allow for abortion and her support for killing babies and other repugnant, feminist Labor policies have infuriated a portion of Islanders.
A Torres Strait Regional Council source on Thursday Island said two factions had formed among the island communities, one to support Ms Lui and another to get rid of her.
Lui’s support of late term abortion has also grated with voters in the lower half of the Cook electorate in which she took power at the 2017 state election following the dis-endorsement of then Labor member Billy Gordon.
Polling booth workers in Mossman, Mareeba and Port Douglas have reported disquiet among voters who once may have supported Lui.
Killing living babies has been first among Labor rejections heard by booth staff.
Lui, said to have three children of her own, supported the conscience vote as did every other Labor member. See the shocking video of Labor politicians rejoicing in the House after the Abortion bill was passed.
Particularly repugnant is the image of Premier Annastacia Palaszczuk being furiously hugged by the now disgraced Labor back-bencher Jackie Trad.
Three members of the LNP also supported the legislation but Katters Australian Party, the remaining LNP members and a cross-bencher voted against it.
The Labor Party could have a vested interest in killing live babies for organ harvesting to make the banned substance Adrenochrome which is said to be the elixir of life and taken by celebrities around the world purportedly to keep them young.
It is manufactured by oxidising adrenaline extracted from live babies and consumed by the Hollywood elite, politicians and other high-ranking world figures.
Like the world market in human organs, young children trafficked for the sex-trade and burgeoning witchcraft ceremonies in Queensland, this could be another underground industry supported by the elitists of the Australian Labor Party.
Protesters say there is a much broader, hidden agenda
More than 60 police officers descended on Darlinghurst, in central Sydney, as an anti-same-sex marriage rally was held in the city’s gay epicentre.
A crowd of about 20 people associated with the “straight lives matter” event at Green Park were outnumbered by counter-protesters, who tried to drown out the speeches with chants and horns.
Sydney MP Alex Greenwich, who is a leading voice in the “Yes” campaign, dismissed the rally in his electorate as a “distraction” and spent the day doorknocking with volunteers.
Nick Folkes, who organised the rally, denied the location — about 300m from Sydney’s famous Oxford Street strip — was significant.
Nick Folkes (centre) says he is exercising his right to free speech
“Some people have said it’s provocative but we’re just exercising our democratic right to freedom of speech and freedom of location,” he said.
“I have real concerns about not just being about gay marriage, but a much broader agenda.
“We’re acting within the boundaries of law. I do believe we’ve got a right to be there, just as gay people have a right to be anywhere in support of their cause.”
Mr Folkes was a driving force behind a rally to commemorate the 10th anniversary of the Cronulla Riots in 2015.
New South Wales Police said there were no incidents at the event.
Same-sex marriage debate has reached fever pitch in the past weeks, as postal survey voting forms continue to be distributed by the Australian Bureau of Statistics.
Last weekend, a sign writer caused controversy by writing “Vote No” in the air three times over the Harbour City.
In Hobart, former prime minister Tony Abbott complained to police after allegedly being headbutted by someone wearing a “Yes” badge on Thursday night.
The alleged offender denied the incident had anything to do with same-sex marriage, stating: “I’m a lone anarchist that felt the need to headbutt Tony Abbott because I didn’t think it was an opportunity I’d get again”. from ABC

The Premier of Queensland has agreed to subsidise eight expensive new toys – electric cars.
Greens are hailing this as the spear-point of their green energy revolution.
But the Premier’s green cars will run on . . . COAL.
Electric cars need large batteries, which have to be recharged.
Maybe the Premier has a large subsidised solar panel on the roof of her garage, so that when she comes home, she can recharge the big battery?
But the sun does not shine at night, so the car will still rely on electricity from coal.
She could of course get taxpayers to buy an expensive battery for the garage which gets charged when the sun shines and then re-charges the green car at night – all very expensive to install and replace. And during and after every cloudy spell, it would still need to run on coal.
Electric cars can reduce pollution in cities. Petrol and diesel engines degrade mega-cities with noise and use up oxygen; and some emit air pollutants such as soot, smoke, carbon monoxide, NOX, SOX and unburnt hydrocarbons.
The Premier should promote Queensland industry by highlighting the fact that her new toys are not only clean and quiet, but also run on nature’s best solar energy battery – ancient sunshine stored in good Queensland coal.
We will face the crisis with aggression and unity – KAP
Charters Towers Debt Summit August 31, 2015
With less than a week until the Charters Towers Rural Crisis Summit, Member for Dalrymple Shane Knuth said he has felt a groundswell of interest.
” Since we announced that a summit would be taking place I have been fielding calls from graziers and small business owners in drought effected areas all over the state,” Mr Knuth said
“The amount of people who are getting involved in this is encouraging, the rural crisis really is the issue of our time.
Mr Knuth who will be chairman on the day with KAP member for Mount Isa Rob Katter said while the speakers at the summit will help bring context, it is a priority locals are given the opportunity to speak.
“The summit is important but the action that follows after is essential,” Mr Knuth said.
“The resolutions devised and agreed upon at the summit will form a blue print for action in rural Queensland.”
Member for Mt Isa Rob Katter who held a similar summit in Winton last year said the rural crisis committee which has since become the backbone for rural advocacy in the area.
“Less than a year on the committee has been instrumental in applying strong pressures to the government in face to face meetings, but we aren’t done yet,” Mr Katter said.
“There needs to be a stronger and more direct connection with between the cattle producers, business owners and the policy makers, we are trying to facilitate this.”
KAP Federal member for Kennedy Bob Katter who will also be part of the day has widely encouraged people from all walks of life to join to help find a solution.
Mr Katter said the current high price of cattle due to the lack of stock available isn’t a consolation for struggling farmers because they themselves have no cattle to sell.
“There are answers here, and we have got to go to those answers with aggression and unity,” he said.
“Wandering around blaming political parties quite frankly isn’t going to get us anywhere, there is a big system of power there and we must assail it on the political front, the economic front and through social media.”
Mr Katter drew reference to the story of Charlie Phillott (speaking at the summit) who’s story written by David Pascoe, went viral and became the most shared post in Australian History.
“The people of Australia are behind us, but we have got to know clearly what we want,” Mr Katter said.
“We must fight for survival.”

Cairns News can confirm there are people in Australia who intend to vote for Labor. As hard as it is to believe, these people have as much intelligence as an Islamic goat rider. This is not to say the Liberals are much better, but with Dick Smith emerging soon to lead a new political force there is hope for this country. Unless the two-party nexus is broken up we will be doomed forever to financial slavery, corporate government, union corruption, government corruption and more and harder police-state controls. Wakey wakey ALP and Liberal voters – your time is here!

Last weekend’s nationwide Reclaim rallies shook the foundations of the treasonous political establishment. Never before has the public witnessed such a firestorm of verbal hate and bigotry emanating from the pampered multicultural lobby and political elites who are finally being challenged for not listening to the peoples’ concerns. The Australian people are fed up with the failed policies of mass third world immigration, the foreign sell-off of Australia, failed political ideology of Islam and the preferential treatment given to those seeking ethnic privilege in the soiled state sanctioned multicultural industry.
Thousands of patriotic Australians took to the streets exercising their freedom of speech in a peaceful and dignified way. Regrettably, the nationwide Reclaim rallies were countered by a brutish collective of anarchists, communists and nappy clad students who were intend on inflicting violent physical attacks on their peaceful opponents. The violence and hatred manifested itself particularly in Melbourne where alcohol and drug fuelled mobs of anarchists and communists attacked protestors, Police and innocent bystanders resulting in many arrests.
The collective of ‘useful idiots’ representing failed anarchist and communist rabble, the militant gay lobby and ‘tolerate’ Muslims banded together in a marriage of convenience to strike a blow against peace loving Australians. The ‘useful idiots’ were on a violent rampage displaying their totalitarian nature and hatred of freedom and democracy.
The treasonous political elite and multicultural industry are both up in arms, totally shocked that their genocidal ideology and morally corrupt policies are being exposed and challenged. The response from the decadent and self-serving elites proves that they are removed from the daily struggles of life that most Australians face. Many politicians have come out publicly pouring scorn on patriotic Australians who attended nationwide rallies calling them “bigots” and “racists” for merely exercising their freedom of speech, again highlighting the disconnect and lack of natural affection shown by arrogant politicians who are not interested in trying to read or understand the peoples’ concerns.
Only one sitting member of the federal parliament broke ranks and spoke at a Reclaim rally in Mackay, MP George Christensen. He spoke passionately about his opposition to the repressive ideology of Islam, sharia law and affection for free speech. Opposition ‘leader’ Bill Shorten attacked Christensen for exercising his freedom of speech but Christensen wasn’t fazed by the old, lazy communist but he was disappointed and surprised at the “tidal wave of hyperventilation and confected outrage on social media”.
The week prior to the nationwide Reclaim rallies, the University of Western Sydney (UWS) hosted a conference entitled ‘Advancing Community Cohesion – Towards a National Compact 2015’. The taxpayer funded two-day do-gooder extravaganza was held to “examine international best practices for dealing with national and local issues regarding social cohesion”. In other words, the rampantly divisive ‘multicultural gravy train’ and its commissars are worried about the lack of social cohesion in Australia and they are searching for ways to counter the growing movement opposing the policy of ‘cultural & heritage genocide’. The quiver lipped cultural charlatans must be having nightmares about the impending collapse of the policy and the possible loss of their highly paid, and irrelevant existence. Multiculturalism is not ‘natural’, it is a policy of ethnic and socialist privilege that has created a hierarchy of over-paid swindling big eaters who have one mission; destroy the Anglo nation and replace it with a ‘meaningless state of no patriotism or heritage’.
Regrettably, Deputy NSW Police Commissioner Nick Kaldas, the police force spokesman on cultural diversity or ‘cultural genocide’ listed “far right extremism and rallies which encourage divisive notions of us and them” as some of the biggest challenges facing his troops. Kaldas born in Egypt of Coptic Christian heritage has spat in the face of Anglo-Australians who welcomed his family to Australia escaping the diverse cultural hellhole of a Muslim dominated nation. I’m sure most Copts in Australia wouldn’t be so rude and ungrateful in the way Kaldas attacked patriotic Australians who said, ‘we’re fed up with state sanctioned multiculturalism and incompatible large scale third world immigration’. Does he expect Australians to lubricate their backsides and walk backwards down the ethnically privileged ghettoes of Lakemba or Cabramatta in fifth gear?
Another conference seat warmer Dr. Anne Aly, a “counter terrorism expert” from Curtin University said, “violent extremism in Australia is beginning to mirror that of the US” – what a lie! Aly highlighted a report from leftist think tank ‘New America Foundation’ in which a selective report tries to fabricate the usual leftist position of manufacturing right-wing threats, fear and propaganda. The report entitled, ‘Deadly Attacks Since 9/11’ lists 26 people killed in ‘deadly Jihadist attacks’ and 48 people killed in ‘deadly right wing attacks’ in America. The selectiveness of the vulnerable left is on display again. If the report was produced by balanced and honest citizens it would have listed the 2,996 people murdered in the 9/11 Muslim terrorist attacks which would change the statistics to ‘3,022 people killed in ‘deadly Jihadist attacks’ since 2001 in America.
Dr. Anne Aly is no stranger to selective thinking when trying to portray “right wing extremism” as our enemy when it is abundantly evident that Muslim, leftist or anarchist groups have killed far more ‘innocent people’ than a few ‘right wing’ nutters. This is the same Anne Aly who said, “Don’t call Man Haron Monis a terrorist – it only helps ISIS” but more recently said, “Chapel Hill Shooting ticks all boxes for terrorism. Violent extremism has many faces”. Dear oh dear, Anne should pick up a dictionary from her local discount bookshop. Man Monis was driven to murder by the world’s most murderous and intolerant ideology so it is fair to label him a ‘Muslim terrorist’.
Dr. Anne Aly’s selective twitter comments:
The worldwide statistics compiled by National Counterterrorism Center (NCTC), a US government organization that provides information on known terrorist groups and individual terrorists and is also a knowledge bank says otherwise. The chart entitled, ‘Grouped By Perpetrator Characteristics’ gives a more balanced and honest view of the extent of terrorism in the world from 2001 to 2010. It is clear to see that Muslims and Anarchist individuals and groups are the real danger to peace and security, not a few beer swilling ‘White Supremacists’. The left needs to stop playing politics and accept the truth; that their deranged Muslim and Anarchist brethren are the ‘real extremists’.
National Counterterrorism Centre (NCTC) data on worldwide extremist groups:
Well-known Oriental supremacist, Race Commissioner ‘Trivial’ Tim Soutphommasane reached a new level of heightened stupidity when he said, “White supremacists” may become bolder in the future. Oh really, could this highly paid cultural commissar name one “white supremacist” organisation that is supposedly threatening the nation? Tim went further saying, “The last thing we would want to see is physical violence involving racism in our streets and in our suburbs”, I agree so I challenge Tim and the old tired Soviet relic called the Australian Human (less) Rights Commission (AHRC) to make a public statement requesting Police and other government agencies urgently address the growing issue of ethnic gang violence in our suburbs. The real victims are Anglo Australians who are targeted, bashed and raped by Muslim, African and Islander gangs. The unpatriotic left’s failed attempt at manufacturing a false scenario is pitiful and laughable at the best.
The angst coming from the political establishment over the nationwide Reclaim rallies is worthy of scorn. The Reclaim organising committee has made it abundantly clear in its media releases and also on social media that it will not ‘racial hatred or violence’ at its rallies. At the last Reclaim Sydney rally, there was a sea of unprejudiced patriotism coming from a diverse audience of Australians, many from migrant backgrounds. How refreshing to be joined by patriotic Australians of varying backgrounds whom identity and love this nation as much as I do. Many migrants have also rejected multiculturalism and the plethora of second-rate executive garbage emanating from Canberra.
The treasonous political establishment should hang their head in shame at trying to manufacture a red flag scenario branding patriots as “right wing extremists” or “white supremacists” for attending the Reclaim rallies. The pinko social engineers and the sooty-faced intellectual Bolshies are the real ‘racist extremists’ who should apologise to the Australian people for forty years of multicultural failure. We deserve better than to see our nation and its people fractured over some stupid Marxist dream of a utopian society based on preference, division and intolerance.
The nationwide Reclaim rallies have made Australian political history. Never before have we witnessed such a magnitude of patriotic Aussies taking to the streets exercising their freedom of speech. I’ve never seen so many different patriotic political groups; parties and individuals come together in unity under one banner before, what a great development. There will always be differences in methodology or delivery of the message but together we can create a new political paradigm that actually represents our interests and continues to challenge the status quo.
Over the past few months Party for Freedom activists have been targeted and physically attacked by anarchists and communists at rallies so it was indeed comforting to know Police were going to be present at Sunday’s rally. It is insane to think that any protestor could be in danger of being attacked for their political beliefs but the loony far left is driven by anger and intolerance and these ‘useful idiots’ will do anything possible to deny patriotic Australians their right to express their political beliefs.
Antifa attack Patriots, again
The attacks and intimidation perpetrated by the drug fuelled mobs of anarchists and communists on Party for Freedom members and supporters will not deter us from continuing our activism. On Sunday, 19th July, a group of Party for Freedom members and supporters met at the Queen Victoria building prior to the Reclaim rally as we planned to form a procession walking from the QVB to the designated Reclaim rally area at the top of Martin Place. A returning group of patriots from the Melbourne Reclaim rally also joined us at the QVB for the walk to the rally. We were very fortunate to have a Police escort to Martin Place, which provided the protection needed as we marched through the streets of Sydney to our final location.
As we walked through the streets, quite a few mentally challenged Stalinists and Maoists tried to breach the Police line formed around us but were held back further infuriating them. In childish retaliation, our aggressive opponents directed verbal threat and taunts at Police and protestors. Our opponents carried cheaply made cardboard placards with crayon drawn “anti-racism” slogans on them. The left has been using the “anti-racism” theme to compensate for their violence and hate, and today was going to be no different. The left has no capacity to debate, just intimidate and destroy.
As we approached Martin Place, we could hear the Reclaim crowd cheering in the distance. The volatile lefties were still yelling the same irrelevant slogans as we walked into Martin Place. It was impressive to see a large crowd of patriotic Aussies listening intently to guest speaker Pastor Danny Nalliah, President of the ‘Rise Up Australia’ political party speak about the disaster that is Islam. Danny is no stranger to controversy; in 2002 his ministry ran a seminar entitled ‘Insight into Islam’. At the seminar, Danny who is well versed in Islam spoke about the violent texts of the Koran and the danger the Islamic political ideology poses to Western nations. Unknown to Danny was the presence of “Australian” Muslim converts in the audience who later lodged a complaint with the then Victorian Equal Opportunity Commission on the premise of “religious intolerance”. The Victorian Opportunity Commission demanded an apology from Danny but he rightly refused on the grounds that what he said was from the Koran. Regrettably, Danny was forced to face the tribunal in a very costly case. Danny was finally vindicated after many two years of legal wrangling pushed by the Islamic Council of Victoria. Danny proved that the Koran is ‘hate speech’ in its purest form.
There were quite a few other speakers who touched on their concerns about Australia’s collapse into the abyss. It seemed everyone was in agreement about the failings of multiculturalism and the unfortunate advance of Islam in Australia. Shermon Burgess of UPF spoke about the unfolding violence perpetrated by anarchist and communist thugs in Melbourne at the previous day’s rally. Again, protestors were targeted by the ‘violent loving’ authoritarian thugs who attacked countless protestors and innocent bystanders. After the Melbourne rally, a group of patriots went to a local pub for a few celebratory ales but were attacked when the chartered bus was about to leave. The unwashed ferals ambushed patriots who were on the bus, pelting the bus with large rocks smashing the front window screen. The boys got off the bus to defend the passengers from further attacks. When the anarchist thugs were confronted, they ran away in a cowardly fashion.
Patriots attended the Reclaim rallies to voice their frustrations and concerns about the present disastrous direction pushed by treasonous government unlike the anarchists & communists who showed up, not to counter our political platform but to engage in physical battle proving that they are motivated by violence and hatred.
The rally was well organised and the presence of the NSW Police gave peaceful Reclaim protestors the security needed. The Police contained the rat bag collective of feral filth just one block away forming Police lines to make sure the feral bog stench could not breach the Police lines.
After the rally, the protestors dispersed pretty quickly to avoid possible dramas with the methadone fuelled anarcho-pinko thugs. It was time to move and the Police kindly gave a group of Party for Freedom activists’ police protection when walking back to our vehicles. Anarchists and communists who were no doubt looking for us rudely interrupted our walk. Once the screaming children of the left spotted us, their behaviour became instantly aggressive with them turning the corner towards us in the hope of breaking the Police line to attack us.
Fortunately, there was a Police van nearby. The back doors of the Police van swung open and we were told to get inside the vehicle while other Police detained the aggressive mob. The anarchists and communists were in the background screaming for our blood. Once inside the van, we travelled down Market Street passing the motley gang of thugs. We drove in style and protection while our aggressive opponents were kept at bay. We arrived at our destination safe and sound ‘thanks’ to the efforts of the NSW Police.
Party for Freedom would like to say ‘THANK YOU’ to the good men and women of the New South Wales Police Force for doing an excellent job in maintaining order and keeping the peace despite the difficult and volatile environment.
And, we would also like to thank the Reclaim organizing committee for their diligent work in coordinating successful nationwide rallies.

‘Ode To Australia‘
Farewell to Australia, just two hundred years old,
Your heritage fought for, now has been sold,
by wimps we entrust, they’re changing the mould.
The spirit of ‘ANZAC’ and ‘DIGGERS’ so bold,
beats in the heart of we who are old.
For they who have no sacrifice made,
do sell our heritage, tho’ it were trade.
What of the ‘ANZACS’ the DIGGERS’ tradition?
The quisling wimps have no definition.
Oh! What a time to run out of ammunition.

LIBERAL GOVERNMENT LEFT WITH EGG ALL OVER ITS FACE
THE CAIRNS POST AND THE ABC HAVE HAD THIS STORY FOR 3 WEEKS BUT WILL NOT TOUCH IT
TROUBLE AHEAD FOR ALL RESIDENTS OF CAPE YORK PENINSULA WITH A NEW INDIGENOUS STATE TO BE CREATED
Cape York Land Council takes control of the Peninsula Development Road on Cape York Peninsula.
Cape York Land Council says the $210 million Mein Deviation road job near Weipa can start
The prospect of Northern Development hailed by the Federal Government as the panacea for northern Australia has been placed on the back foot after the State Government and the Cape York Land Council signed an agreement allowing the Land Council to control the Peninsula Development Road, the main arterial access to Cape York.
The Land Council claims it wants jobs for local community residents but some Cape Traditional Owners, businessmen and pastoralists believe it to be a “greedy land grab for the few at the top of the CYLC” that will not benefit most struggling communities.
There will be more of the traditional CYLC ‘jobs for their boys’ who in most cases are never local indigenous businesses. Richie AhMat, Gerhardt and Noel Pearson are in bed with the big boys and their predictions of jobs for Peninsula indigenous contractors like most of their other failed, expensive schemes will also fail local businesses, contractors and the long-suffering community resident.
The state and federal governments have rolled over to the unrepresentative CYLC yet again. Next comes the new Aboriginal state of Cape York above the 16th Parallel with the TOLL gates set at Laura or Lakeland.
Every local authority in the nation should be terrified about the hijacking of this vital state government-owned road that is the only land access to important northern defence facilities and the major mining town of Weipa.
Meanwhile September is a few days away and the wet season a few months away. Starting such major roadworks near Weipa that should have begun in May will be a disaster for the unlucky contractor, soon to be announced.
And the annual $25 billion Aboriginal industry, taxpayer feeding frenzy continues for CYLC and Balkanu……..
Meetings to discuss Cape York issues to be held soon
A series of meetings about the Penisula Development Road will be held next week across Cape York Peninsula.

It would seem Federal Member for Leichhardt, Warren Entsch has been fence sitting over this issue and continues to ignore the voice of the people. He may have started his own political demise with voter anger reaching boiling point in North Queensland.

Landmark agreement paves way for Peninsula Development Road
Published on Facebook – 29 July 2015
THE Cape York Land Council today signed an important agreement which paves the way for the start of construction on the Mein Deviation and other sections of the Peninsula Development Road, known as the PDR.
Under this agreement, the Queensland Government and Native Title Holders will now begin negotiations to settle an Indigenous Land Use Agreement for the whole of the PDR by the end of 2015. These negotiations follow the lodgment and registration of one of Australia’s largest native title claims earlier in the year, over Cape York.
Chairman of the Cape York Land Council, Mr Richie Ah Mat, said the Department of Transport and Main Roads could now finalise contract arrangements for construction to commence next week.
“There has been a mammoth effort by the Queensland Government and the Cape York Land Council to settle these outstanding matters over the last two months and our meetings over the last two days have endorsed our approach,” he said.
The agreement addresses Indigenous employment, training and business opportunities, cultural heritage clearance processes and environmental considerations.
“On Cape York, where the Indigenous community is battling very high unemployment, high incarceration rates and alcohol and drug abuse, projects such as the PDR are critical in providing opportunity to our mob,” said Mr Ahmat.
“This is a great example of the State Government recognising the Native Title and cultural interests of Traditional Owners to maintain respectful ongoing relationships to carry the PDR to completion.”
Under the agreement, a Traditional Owner steering committee has been established that will guide the settlement of the Indigenous Land Use Agreement with the Queensland Government.
Mr Ahmat said that it was very important for Traditional Owner groups to work together on major linear projects such as the PDR. “An important principle of the Native Title claim has been that Traditional Owners speak for their country,” he said.
“Prior to the settlement of the Indigenous Land Use Agreement, there will need to be further discussions with Traditional Owners from along the road route”.
Southern Kandju and Negotiating committee member, Dion Creek, praised the agreement.
“For the first time, the State Labor Government, Cape York Land Council, and Traditional Owners have respectfully negotiated a single agreement covering the PDR,” he said.
“There can be no longer be any excuse for our people to remain on the sidelines, when it comes to capitalising on investments for the PDR and other road networks throughout Cape York.
Mr Creek said that PDR investments specified in the agreement would be used to increase the capacity of Indigenous people, through the provision of training and employment, enterprise facilitation and the commitment to support local business.
“We have a jobs crisis in Cape York,” he said. “It is a priority we must address
Did Bill Shorten swap workers’ benefits for union fees? Yes he did.
Did he hide Gillard and Wilson’s theft from his AWU members? Yes he did.
Did he try to hide the HSU fraud? Yes he did.
Did he have Bob Kernohan bashed? Yes he did.
Did he rape a drunk 16 year-old girl? Yes he did.
Did he knife two sitting Labor Prime Ministers? Yes he did.
Did he… oh, I could go on all day, because this bloke has a rap sheet longer than both the Kray brothers combined.
But Bill is not your average crook, he plans very carefully each and every move, right down to how he was going to rape that young girl after getting her drunk. He knew in advance his girlfriend would not be there that night and had arranged who would be sleeping where. Everything Bill does is meticulously planned.
You only get to see the real Bill Shorten when there’s no camera or mike in sight.
His comrades get their hands dirty while he gets the benefits. He ensured employers were as equally culpable when he shafted his workers, so it’s hard to see the TURC nailing him.
You will not see Commissioner Dyson Heydon recommending charges but today, and maybe tomorrow, you will get glimpses of the type of person Bill Shorten really is… and it’s not pretty.
His rise to the top was styled on his hero, Bob Hawke. He too extricated himself from the filth of the union movement to shower and don an Armani suit and red silk tie, ready for the political rough and tumble of Parliament. But Bill is no Bob… and Bill can never be PM.
Many people unexpectedly took a bullet for this man. Those who suffered, suffered in silence for the sake of their beloved union movement… and Bill knew they would.
He has no old friends, only new ones who can never be real ones.
No, you wouldn’t want to be in the trenches with this bloke. He will be the last to go over the top and the last to bare his back to the comrades he bayoneted. But, as with all craven crooks who pretend to be soldiers, they eventually fall back into the trench to die with those they killed.
But Bill’s death will be slower.
He will have time to gaze into the glassy eyes of former comrades like Bob Kernohan.
The promise of northern development, heralded by the Federal Government as the saviour of the languishing agricultural and business sectors took a mortal blow last week as the Queensland Government contemplates withdrawing from a $220 million road project on Cape York Peninsula.
Central to unlocking the great potential and opportunities in the north is all weather road access, but moves by the Cape York Land Council to place an Indigenous Land Use Agreement over the Peninsula Development Road network have stalled the Mein Deviation upgrade north of the Archer River.
In spite of tenders being called three months ago, the successful tenderer for this project has not yet been announced and nearly two hundred jobs hang in the balance.
Main Roads Minister Mark Bailey said his department was working through Native Title issues with the Cape York Land Council.
“The Palaszczuk Government is keen to create jobs and get this project up in the Cape once agreement can be reached,” Minister Bailey said.
“We will work closely with the CYLC, Traditional Owners and Native Title applicants to deliver this important project for the Cape York community.
“Ultimately both parties are working towards an outcome that will be in everybody’s interests.”
CYLC Chairman Mr Richie Ahmat said he had not been following the ILUA negotiations because of his involvement in the campaign to include indigenous people in the Commonwealth Constitution.
Spokesman for the Land Council Peter Callaghan was unavailable for comment.
Meanwhile Cook Shire Mayor Peter Scott said he was unaware of any result with the negotiations and feared other road works in Cook Shire could be impacted as a result of the demands made by the CYLC.
“There could be an agreement on doing only priority works or maybe compulsory resumptions of land necessary to start the road program,” Cr Scott said.
“If this project does not go ahead contractors will lose a lot of money and worst of all we all lose credibility with any investors who want to start projects in the north.
“The Premier wants to have a conference to attract investors to the north but if we lose the (Federal) funding for this project, then it will be hard to get anyone interested in northern development.”
Musgrave Roadhouse operator and a member of Cape York Sustainable Futures, John McDowall said he was “horrified” at the prospect of the CYLC registering an ILUA over the PDR.
“We are worried that if the Land Council gets total control of the road they could charge tourists and trucks to go up the Peninsula,” Mr McDowall said.
“This would keep tourists away and the only reason they are coming in such big numbers this year is because most gravel sections are in good condition.
“Until the end of June, the traffic counter showed that 20,400 vehicles had passed the roadhouse and this looks like being one of the biggest years ever.
“Local communities want a bitumen road because the cost of freight and the cost of living will come right down if fresh food like milk can get through quickly and without truck breakdowns.
“We have heard the Main Roads Department might walk away from this road job and that will be a bad result for the future of businesses on the Peninsula.”
Traditional Owner and spokesman for the Yadaikana Tribal Group of Elders at Injinoo, Meun Lifu said he did not agree with an ILUA being placed over the northern section of the Peninsula Development Road or the Telegraph Road.
“This is not good for development and it should be stopped,” Mr Lifu said.
“We want the road upgraded and a bridge over the Jardine River, otherwise we will look for another access to go around the river.
“We have had no say and nobody has asked us about the Land Council taking control of the main road.”
A Coen businessman has labelled the move to control the PDR as “a greedy grab for total control of the Cape.”
Publican Barry Mulley said the local business community could not afford to lose the Main Roads Department project.
“My business will be stuffed and I would never be able to sell it if they close off the Peninsula,” he said.
“Its time the government stood up to the Land Council and their greedy demands.”

For all those ill advised people employed by the Commonwealth of Australia and do not yet understand what they are doing within their work that entails criminal ways. Let them read and comprehend because the freight train of enlightened Australians is heading toward them to deliver a catastrophic blow upon their full commercial liability now outside public service protection as they continue to demand money with menaces from those of us who are not employed by their corporation the Australian Government. Their actions are in fact extortion. This include all members of federal and state parliaments all local government councils across Australia which includes ALL public servants, consultants, etc.
The registration of The Commonwealth of Australia as a company in Washington DC by government without referendum or consultation with we the people now make political parties, parliamentarians, public servants and all who sail within Corporate Australian Government accountable in the real world of litigation and treason charges.

The Enemy Within
As the Abbott government begins to take on union power and corruption and the recent Royal Commission exposing Union liars, thugs & thieves, a timely new book reveals the union movement’s role in one of the most shameful periods of Australian history. What the wharfies did to Australian troops – and their nation’s war effort – between 1939 and 1945 is nothing short of an abomination.
Perth lawyer Hal Colebatch has done the nation a service with his groundbreaking book, Australia’s Secret War, telling the untold story of union bastardry during World War 2.
Using diary entries, letters and interviews with key witnesses, he has pieced together with forensic precision the tale of how Australia’s unions sabotaged the war effort; how wharfies vandalised, harassed, and robbed Australian troop ships, and probably cost lives.
One of the most obscene acts occurred in October, 1945, at the end of the war, after Australian soldiers were released from Japanese prison camps. They were half dead, starving and desperate for home. But when the British aircraft-carrier HMS Speaker brought them into Sydney Harbour, the wharfies went on strike. For 36 hours, the soldiers were forced to remain on-board, tantalisingly close to home. This final act of cruelty from their countrymen was their thanks for all the sacrifice.
Colebatch coolly recounts outrage after outrage. There were the radio valves pilfered by waterside workers in Townsville which prevented a new radar station at Green Island from operating. So when American dive bombers returning from a raid on a Japanese base were caught in an electrical storm and lost their bearings, there was no radio station to guide them to safety. Lost, they ran out of fuel and crashed, killing all 32 airmen.
Colebatch quotes RAAF serviceman James Ahearn, who served at Green Island, where the Australians had to listen impotently to the doomed Americans’ radio calls: “The grief was compounded by the fact that had it not been for the greed and corruption on the Australian waterfront such lives would not have been needlessly lost.”
Almost every major Australian warship was targeted throughout the war, with little intervention from an enfeebled Prime Minister Curtin. There was the deliberate destruction by wharfies of vehicles and equipment, theft of food being loaded for soldiers, snap strikes, go-slows, demands for “danger money” for loading biscuits.
Then there were the coal strikes which pushed down coal production between 1942 and 1945 despite the war emergency. There were a few honourable attempts to resist union leaders, such as the women working in a small arms factory in Orange, NSW, who refused to strike and “pelted union leaders with tomatoes and eggs”.
This is a tale of the worst of Australia amid the best, the valour and courage of our soldiers in New Guinea providing our last line of defence against Japanese, only to be forced onto starvation rations and to “go easy on the ammo” because strikes by the wharfies back home prevented supplies from reaching them. A planned rescue of Australian POWs in Borneo late in the war apparently had to be abandoned, writes Colebatch, because a wharf strike in Brisbane meant the ships had no heavy weapons.
There was no act too low for the unionists. For instance, in 1941, hundreds of soldiers on board a ship docked in Fremantle entrusted personal letters to wharfies who offered to post them in return for beer money. The letters never arrived.
At one point in 1942 a US Army colonel became so frustrated at the refusal of Townsville wharfies to load munitions unless paid quadruple time, he ordered his men to throw the unionists into the water and load the guns themselves.
In Adelaide, American soldiers fired sub-machine guns at wharfies deliberately destroying their aircraft engines by dropping them from great heights. Australian soldiers had to draw bayonets to stop the same Adelaide wharfies from stealing food meant for troops overseas. You will read this book with mounting fury.
Colebatch offers various explanations for the treasonous behaviour of the unions. Many of the leaders were Communists obsessed with class warfare. Fervent “identity politics” led them to believe they were victims, and that servicemen and women were “puppets of capitalism whose lives were of no consequence”.
Contrary to popular belief, strikes and sabotage continued to the end of the war, even after the Soviet Union became an ally, writes Colebatch, who contends that the Australian Left may have wanted to undermine the military in preparation for revolution after the war. Whatever the reasons for the defective morality of those unionists who sabotaged our war effort, the traitors have never been brought to account.
This story has been largely suppressed for 70 years because Labor and the Left have successfully controlled the narrative of history. But no more, thanks to Colebatch.
