Hello Rupert, bye-bye Malcolm

Anyone who doubts Rupert Murdoch’s role in the political chaos that has played out in recent days has never worked for him at a senior level.

Murdoch’s annual visits to Australia invariably trigger seismic events both in and outside News Corp, the company he’s presided over for decades.

So is it any surprise that Malcolm Turnbull has lost his job less than a fortnight after Murdoch arrived here? Of course it isn’t.

Murdoch flew in on August 10 and set about doing what he always does: he attended the annual News Awards, which fete the company’s best and brightest journalists, conducted one-on-ones with his editors and then signed off on the inevitable promotions, demotions and executions of the company’s most senior staff.

(I once endured all three on one of his visits – surviving a relatively benign one-on-one with Murdoch, accepting a News Award and then getting sacked, all in a matter of days.)

For good measure Murdoch also attended the 75th birthday of the Institute of Public Affairs on Monday night and was interviewed on stage with former Liberal PM, John Howard, by one of the media tycoon’s preferred columnists, Janet Albrechtsen.

Throughout all this he would have been forming a view that Turnbull’s time was up – in fact, he probably arrived with that view – and then imparted that message to his editors.

He wouldn’t have had to tell his columnists or his TV commentators because they arrived at that view months ago and have been preaching it ad nauseum. Foremost here have been Andrew Bolt, Miranda Devine and Peta Credlin.

They have been aided by an army of Sydney shock jocks, notably Alan Jones, Ray Hadley and Paul Murray.

In the end it took just 11 days after Murdoch’s arrival to bring about a party room spill. It played out less than 24 hours after that IPA appearance.

While much of Tuesday’s party room drama was driven by Tony Abbott and his ultra-conservative cohorts, there were plenty of willing executioners within News Corp, its various arms and Sydney’s blowhard broadcasters.

Turnbull alluded to these internal and external agents of regime change at his extraordinary press conference on Thursday afternoon in Canberra.

“A minority in the party room, supported by others outside the parliament, have sought to bully, intimidate others into making this change of leadership,” he said.

He avoided specifics, but it was clear who he was referring to.

Channel Nine political editor Chris Uhlmann had made the same point on Thursday morning, telling Today viewers hours before the Turnbull press conference that “everyone from the PM down has pointed out to me that they believe there has been a campaign waged against them”.

Uhlmann went on: “We are talking about The Australian, The Daily Telegraph, tabloid newspapers around the country, 2GB in Sydney led by Alan Jones and Ray Hadley, and Sky News in particular with its evening line-up, are waging a war against the prime minister of Australia.”

He’s right, of course.

Predictably, the News Corp backlash was swift, with various operatives condemning Uhlmann’s comments as “disgusting” and “outrageous”. They should get out more often.

Journalists traditionally tread a fine line in leadership contests, forced to sift through leaks, whispers and background conversations when reporting a fast-moving story. On this occasion though, too many appeared to cross it. And most of those work for News Corp or its entities.

Their willingness to insert themselves into the story was a long, long way from traditional journalism’s demands of objectivity, fairness, balance and a genuine search for truth. I fear it won’t be a one-off either.

The front pages of the company’s tabloids were also firmly against Turnbull, the Herald Sun branding him “Dead Mal Walking” and the Courier-Mail welcoming candidate Dutton with “The Pete Is On”.

The choir was pretty clearly singing from the same song sheet. This is not entirely unexpected. As many have observed on this and other continents, Rupert has form in this regard.

Time and again it’s been shown that he likes to meddle in the politics of the countries his outlets operate in. Just last month The Washington Post reported that he talks with US President Donald Trump every day.

This week’s events and Murdoch’s role in them were another reminder that recent law changes have created media monsters that even prime ministers have reason to fear.

Turnbull has now paid with his job because on some level he failed Murdoch and his minions. The simplest explanation is he was perceived as just too liberal.

The real beneficiary of all this is Bill Shorten. But he shouldn’t dwell on his good fortune for too long.

That’s because the treatment of Turnbull by News Corp inevitably throws up this question: If Murdoch and Co will go to such lengths to oust a Liberal leader, what will they do to keep Labor from power?

  22. He fired two shots at 6.30pm at Port Arthur while he was under siege by police at Seascape. And fired from the right hip by a left hander. 4 more like him and we could take over the entire world.
  23. If you believe the official version, his marksmanship was fantastic – twenty head shots, from the right hip, in 90 seconds!A movement of 3 degrees would have missed at 3 -4 meters.
  24. There are only about 100 shooters that good (better than Olympians) in the world.

All done by an intellectually handicapped young man with an IQ of 66 and the mental age of an eleven year old boy ? The whole event was planned and announced in Hansard 2 years earlier – Why – to disarms us. Bryant was never given a proper trial. Prime Minister Johhny Coward prevented it! All previously arranged. He should replace Martin Bryant in jail!

Australia’s Secret War

The Labor leopard has not changed it’s spots

As the Abbott government began to take on union power and corruption and then a Royal Commission exposing Union liars, thugs & thieves, a 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.

CIA treasonous agenda to overthrow Trump government

CIA Treason Agenda

Angry, leftist politicians are seeking to overthrow the U.S. government, holding clandestine meetings with CIA operatives… and the media is complainant in the treasonous task.

It’s a sentence that reads like it comes from a two dollar-store spy novel… but it’s very real, according to best-selling author and noted journalist Glenn Greenwald.

Australian Treasonous Public Service

Australian embattled political establishment poised to be trumped by people powered One Nation and other elected independents platform returning the peoples stolen voice to their parliament back is terrifying the duopoly two party system of government, but most feared – “what if they examine the books”.

Treasonous agenda in Australia is not isolated to national security organisations as identified with American CIA, there is a deadly viper nest of entrenched unelected self appointed public servant puppet masters who unchallenged administer control over all elected Australian parliaments. When challenged these vipers access unlimited taxpayer funding to eliminate any threat to this power base. The only attack they cannot defeat is from a united front at polling booths that removes the two party system control of Australian government.

The Video

This video of  Tucker Carlson’s show on Fox News Thursday, Greenwald, not a Trump supporter, warned that there is “obvious open warfare” between the CIA and President Donald Trump. Even worse, Democratic lawmakers were encouraging and “openly calling for and cheering for the intervention of the CIA.”

That, folks, is high treason.

The real China outside our Kowtowing duopoly parliament

Canberra dictatorial duopoly puppets capitulating to China’s cashing up silent invasion via a Trojan Horse, are remote controlling Australia  from behind a facade of glossy assimilation.

BE PREPARED, new owners in waiting will  remove the tiny residue of freedom we have left.

 Duopoly faithful lemmings  sustain promoted mountainous fear driven legislation, set in place by self appointed political masters agenda to maintain total control  by deception, and so glaringly obvious to a far greater master targeting the defenseless.

Extreme torture inside China’s correctional facilities

WARNING: Disturbing content.

JINTAO Liu’s body shuddered in pain as he endured yet another day of extreme torture.

He had woken to pins being pushed into his nails before he was forced to stand still in a yard for some 18 hours. If he moved, he was beaten viciously and within an inch of his life.

Each excruciating second of the gruelling punishment caused his legs to swell as his body threatened to buckle under the pressure. He was given “no toilet breaks”, and shown no mercy. Time had become his enemy — but not his worst.

That was a typical day for Mr Liu during a lengthy stint in a series of Beijing detention centres and labour camps between 2006 and 2009.

There, he was subjected to electric shocks, medical tests, forced feedings, beatings, violent sexual assaults and other barbaric forms of torture designed by prison guards to humiliate and inflict maximum pain.

But it was one particularly savage punishment that etched the deepest psychological scar on Mr Liu.

“The incident which marked me the most was when they, four of (the prison guards), stripped me of my clothes, and used the toilet brush to pierce my anus, saying that they would pierce until I turned homosexual,” Mr Liu told news.com.au.

“They pulled my pubic hairs and played with my genitals.”

His only ‘crime’ was to practice Falun Gong, a spiritual meditation based on the guiding principles of “truth, compassion and tolerance”.

But perhaps just as shocking is that the Chinese government has been carrying out these human rights atrocities — including forced organ removal for harvesting purposes — on innocent citizens and convicted criminals for the best part of the past two decades. And it’s still happening today.

WHAT IS HAPPENING AND WHY?

Mr Liu, 36, is one of thousands of people who have been incarcerated in some of China’s worst jails, labour camps and detention centres for practising Falun Gong and refusing to give up their spiritual beliefs.

By the 1990s Falun Gong had become so popular it was estimated to have 100 million members, outnumbering the country’s ruling Communist Party and prompting former Chinese leader Jiang Zemin to ban the practice in 1999.

Doctors Against Forced Organ Harvesting (DAFOH) Australia spokeswoman Sophia Bryskine said the persecution of Falun Gong practitioners was still extensive with many being locked up “with no legal proceedings”.

“In our recent research and communications we have focused predominantly on prisoners of conscience as the scale of abuse remains vast,” she told news.com.au.

Dr Bryskine said China was committing human rights atrocities on a mass, state-sanctioned level and that Australia, along with the other nations, needed to immediately act and condemn it.

Census privacy violation

How safe and secure are Australian’s private and personal details {data} that the Australian Bureau of Statistics is about to collect for the 2016 Australian Census?

In my opinion, it is neither safe nor is it secure.

Can the Australian Federal Government, Treasury and their Australian Bureau of Statistics be trusted to keep Census Data secure and safe.              

In my opinion, they have no intention of keeping them safe nor secure. 

greenrollerIn September 2015 Julie Bishop committed Australia to the United Nation’s $5-5 Trillion ‘Sustainable Development Goals/2030 Agenda’ {SDG’s}, and their 17 Goals and 169 Targets, another name and continuation of Agenda 21/ESD. The success
of the United Nation’s SDG’s relies solely upon the United Nation’s Biometric ID Scheme/National Electronic Identity Scheme {SDG Goal 16-9}. By their actions Australia is now committed to the mandatory reporting of all of Australians data including private and personal which is to be sent to the United Nations and Member States. No arguments that’s it.
The Australian Bureau of Statistics {ABS} has been leading the work on the United Nations Biometric ID Scheme for years. The ABS and CSIRO have been working for some time with the United Nations ‘BIG DATA AND GLOBAL WORKING GROUP’ in collecting Australian’s Mobile Phone Data and Social Media Data as well as other issues.
All of a sudden the UN’s 17 Goals and 169 Targets confirm that the 1992 Agenda 21/ESD is not solely about ‘SUSTAINABILITY’ and Climate Change, there are hundreds of other issues. The success of the SDG’s are reliant upon the United Nation’s Biometric ID Scheme/National Electronic Identity Scheme and the massive amount of data collected by CSIRO and by other means being sent to the UN.
Julie Bishop played a strategic part in formulating the SDG’s. Shortly after committing Australia to the SDG’s the Australian Senate Adopted them as a plan for the future up to 2030. The UN has embedded their SDG’s in their Human Rights Charter of which Australia is a signatory. This makes it mandatory for those who adopt the SDG’s to send all data collected to the UN so that they can monitor Australia’s progress in implementing their SDG’s.
While the ABS has handed our data to government, non government, businesses and civil society this is the first time in Australian history that a government has intentions of handing such a massive amount of data, including names and addresses that are to be kept for the first time, to an unelected foreign body.

80-year old Hindmarsh spring manufacturer to close; 54 jobs to go; management points finger at free trade deals

Another one bites the dust as government closes this 80 year old Australian business accredited to:

Andrew Robb, according to Malcolm Turnbull has been the most successful Trade Minister in our country’s history landing three enormous free trade agreements with Japan, South Korea and China. In addition, he has secured agreement of the historic Trans Pacific Partnership, eliminating tariffs on 98 per cent of traded goods and creating better access for Australia’s innovative service industries in 11 leading economies, including the US, Japan and Canada.

Cairns News

Industrial Engineers and Springmakers’ Chris Coxon is both sad and angry about the impending closure of the 80-year-old business.

THE management of an 80-year-old Hindmarsh family business that announced its closure this morning, costing 54 jobs, has lashed out at the recent spate of free trade agreements that it says has made its future unviable.

Family owned business Industrial Engineers and Spring Makers will cease operations on March 24, with all 54 employees — the majority of whom are older than 50 — to be made redundant.

The company makes springs for cars, trucks, trailers and industrial applications, along with other allied products. However, management said the demise of the local automotive industry was not the driving factor of its predicament.

Instead, senior manager Chris Coxon, whose grandfather Jack Marsh founded the company in 1935, laid blame on the increasing number of free trade agreements, which he says has created a uneven playing field.

In recent years, former trade minister (now trade envoy) Andrew Robb has overseen the signing of a number of agreements, with partner countries including China, Japan and Korea.

“To us it boils down to a policy issue, presumably in the name of free trade, which in turn assumes that free and open trade weeds out businesses that are inefficient,” Mr Coxon said.

“While true at a broad macro level, it can be utter nonsense at the micro community level, particularly when copies of our products are not made under the same conditions and regulatory environment.”

Mr Coxon said the writing was on the wall when major client Kenworth Trucks switched to an overseas supplier last year.

“Our issue is with the Chinese copying our products,” he said.

“They produce a lower quality good and charge, say, 20 per cent less for it, which, in this economic climate, sees around 80 per cent of people select that good.

“We make a better quality product but can’t compete on price.”

Managing director Tim Marsh said all of the company’s suppliers will be paid in full, on top of more than $1 million in redundancy payments and other entitlements.

“We want to do the right thing by everyone — nobody will miss out,” he said.

“I have grown up with this place and I consider everyone here to be friends.”

Mr Coxon said he particularly felt for employees aged in their late 50s and early 60s who are not yet ready to retire.

The treachery of the LNP/ALP nexus – Lima treaty winds down manufacturing and production by 30%

THE LIMA DECLARATION AN OVERVIEW

  •  How does it effect you and your family?
  •  What is the Lima declaration?

The correct title is:-  Lima Declaration and plan of Action on Industrial Development and Co-operation

agenda21logoIt is an international trade agreement similar to G.A.T.T, (General Agreement on Trade and Tariffs), Australia is a signatory to The Lima Declaration as it is to many GATT agreements.

Australia signed The Lima Agreement with the total support of all major political parties and no consultation with we the people.

It should be clearly understood that the ‘Lima Declaration’ is one of many hundreds of international agreements and treaties signed by Australian Public Servants, usually by The Minister for Foreign Affairs or nominee, who signs on behalf of all Australians.

It should also be clearly understood that 99,9.% of Australians do not know what such agreements and treaties are about, nor how they effect their lives, and they are not told, if they were, there would be instant riot.

International treaties in the main are the handy work of the United Nations and have been used by Australian Governments to undermine Australian Sovereignty.  The High Court decision on the Franklin Dam issue in Tasmania is a case in point.  Used to put in place processes the impact of which the Australian ~op l e are completely unaware, and if they were aware, would be totally opposed to, processes that “get- around”  “The Australian Commonwealth Constitution.”  In other words, treason.  And treason is being committed in the name of International Treaty, or the other names given to them, such as conventions, or in this case declaration, The Lima Declaration.

You may say treason is a strong word, but after reading this brief you will say it is not strong enough, without doubt sufficient reason to impeach the Australian Government and opposition on charges of Treason.

A copy of The Lima Declaration may be obtained from the United Nations in your Capital City, or the department of Foreign Affairs in Canberra, by phoning the treaties support unit on (06) 261 3590 .

While you are on the phone ask them how many treaties, declarations, conventions, etc exist.  Ask for copies.  Ask for the complete set.

You may say treason is a strong word, but after reading this brief you will say it is not strong enough, without doubt sufficient reason to impeach the Australian Government and opposition on charges of treason.
