TO MEMBERS SUPPORTERS AND PEOPLE OF AUSTRALIA
Is Pauline Hanson (the "redhead you can trust") really telling you the truth?


FACT
:       PAULINE HANSON TODAY HOLDS NO EXECUTIVE POSITION IN ONE NATION!
                   SHE'S NOT LEGALLY BACK UNTIL MEMBERS
AND STATE EXECUTIVES
                   ACROSS AUSTRALIA CONSTITUTIONALLY AGREE IN AN OPEN TRANSPARENT
                   VOTE! THAT HAS NOT HAPPENED!
FACT:       PAULINE HANSON WAS NEVER A MEMBER OF ONE NATION ANYWAY!
FACT:       PAULINE HANSON WAS NEVER "AT THE HELM" OF ONE NATION!
FACT:       PAULINE HANSON WAS NOT THE FOUNDER OF ONE NATION!
FACT:       THE ADVERT ABOVE SAYS THE "RE-LAUNCH OF ONE NATION"?
                   HOW CAN SHE RE-LAUNCH WHAT'S EXISTED SINCE 2006?
 
(She founded Pauline Hanson's One Nation Limited) a totally DIFFERENT PARTY - which had failed by 2006 and was replaced by the modern One Nation.
 
SO, HOW CAN SHE CLAIM TO BE back as the leader of One Nation?

Today the One Nation national website - controlled by Queensland Division announced ...

Hanson Resurrects One Nation

After nearly thirteen years away from the helm of One Nation, Pauline Hanson has once again taken up the reins as National Chairman and Leader of the party, after exiting in 2002. 

Due to a flood of public support through her Facebook page and a request from the One Nation QLD Division State Executive to return to the party as leader, Ms Hanson said, 

“It’s time to resurrect the party I founded in 1997.  Australians are feeling very disillusioned with all the political parties and want someone else to vote for.  Honesty and integrity is of the utmost importance and Australians are fed up with corruption and snouts in the trough.  Many feel the Australian way of life, and their rights are under threat.  Foreign ownership of agricultural land, assets and housing concerns Australians with more imported foods, rising costs due to foreign investment and many Australians never being able to own their own home.”    

The party claims to always have had a finely attuned antenna to the people, and the courage to speak out when others fear to do so.  One Nation QLD Division State President, Jim Savage, maintains that “One Nation has lead the way on many state and federal policies, although the average person is not aware of it.  We are very relevant when the current and past governments adopt One Nation’s 17-year-old policies.” 

The One Nation relaunch, open to the public, will be held at the Caboolture Golf Club this Saturday, 29th November at 3:15pm, where Mr. Savage and State Director Ian Nelson are set to address the public, alongside Ms. Hanson. 

With a variety of topics to be discussed, including the price of petrol, Islam in Australia, water rights and the declining Australian food industry, the meeting has attracted people as far away as Adelaide, South Australia. One Nation has said it has received over one thousand emails and messages of support since Ms. Hanson had returned to lead the party, with former members turning back to join from all over the country.

Ms Hanson said she will “always stand up for all Australians, raise the real issues and throw political correctness into the rubbish where it belongs.“

A QLD Division member’s meeting will be held at 2pm, prior to the public meeting, to request a party name change back to ‘Pauline Hanson’s One Nation,’ from the QLD membership. 

FACT: Pauline Hanson cannot resurrect something she never led ie. One Nation. 

FACT: The Queensland Executive of One Nation alone neither owns, nor controls, the party nationally. It alone cannot vote her back. The National Committee and State Divisions of the party haven't been consulted.

 FACT: Members nationally were not (lawfully) constitutionally consulted or asked for their opinion about Hanson!

FACT: We believe Pauline Hanson doesn't have the skill set necessary to run a successful political party. Her sixteen years of failure attest to that!

FACT: We believe an attempt is in full swing to hijack the party and its funds from it's own members in a similar way that led to disaster for the original party after 1997.

Accordingly a court injunction is in process to stop this illegal farce orchestrated from Queensland.

 

DON'T FALL FOR HANSON'S SMOKE AND MIRRORS!

MEMBERS REJECT PARTY FOUN
DER
24th November 2014

Members of the ONE NATION party have begun preparing the court injunction to put a stop to the attempt by members of the QUEENSLAND division from wresting total control of the party without consultation of the general membership. This continued unconstitutional assault by these people and coupled with the complete lack of transparency in regard to party finances at the national level has culminated in this drastic but necessary action.

Members are aware of and support the ongoing push by the Western Australian Division executive to bring the party back under control of the members, and the appeal to the AEC (Australian Electoral Commission) to uphold the application to change the registered officer is currently before the Commission.

While the return of Pauline Hanson to the party could be seen as an attention grabber by some members, many other members see her as a failed candidate and that she has shown little or no loyalty to the party over an extended period and will bring nothing worthwhile to the movement.

The claim by Pauline on the "national website" (and see below) that she is now national chairman and party leader has caused suspicion and mistrust by members who have not been consulted in any way as to her purported elevation to that position.

Members also reject the attempts by Queensland to change the name of the party to: Pauline Hanson's ONE NATION as Pauline "was not a member" when the party was re-formed into the national body now known as: ONE NATION.

It is hoped that this ongoing dysfunction or otherwise can be rectified and that those loyal supporters standing outside of the party will once again re-join and work towards our original goals.

LIES, LIES AND MORE LIES


The notice below appears on the One Nation Party national website controlled by One Nation Queensland.

The statement "One Nation WA is managed by ONQLD is a lie and no correspondence for ONWA or memberships for people residing in WA or the NT should be forwarded to ONQLD!

One Nation
in Western Australia is an Incorporated Association - as is preferred by the Australian Electoral  Commission. ONQLD is not incorporated.

One Nation Western Australia is also a full constitutional state division of the federally registered One Nation Party and  recognised as such by the Australian Electoral Commission.


The intimation, below, that ONWA is somehow fraudulent is therefore incorrect.

The same nonsense applies the Northern Territory website. ONNT is a lawful branch of ONWA.

Please note: ONWA has received complaints from state executives in NSW and SA that they are not consulted on page content on their state's pages.

PAULINE HANSON CAUGHT OUT? ONE DELUDED LADY?

Date: November 18th SUNRISE SHOW - YOUTUBE
 
This is a MUST SEE Youtube!
 
On the Youtube below Pauline Hanson claims in a very nervous, quavering, stumbling, voice;
 
"I was actually voted in by the Queensland state executive and accepted by the National Executive three weeks ago and a letter was sent out to the members stating I am now back as National Chairman and leader of the party. And requesting for members to acknowledge and accept  my changes of the name back to Pauline Hanson's One Nation.  I was just told about ten minutes ago by the national er ... state director of the party and the party agent that no... not one letter has come back from the members. So I'm really pleased about that. So it looks like it may go through. But we'll see what happens. It's not over till the twenty ninth of November."
 
Really? What a confusing interview? What decision three weeks ago? What letter?  There are a hell of a lot of members who know nothing about this and executives across the country left totally in the dark!
 
As Pauline correctly said, the Queensland Division doesn't meet until 29th November 2014.

The national and state party constitutions say the national executive (actually committee) must consult with members before it (or she) can announce such a decision. Besides that's common meeting law!
 
We see Pauline has shot her mouth off too early and spoiled the plot to take over the party. But what if the members vote against you Pauline?  After all they, not you Pauline, own the party.
 
The fact is One Nation was never Hanson's party in the first place!  Her party was called Pauline Hanson's One Nation Limited - a totally different business entity registered through ASIC (Australian Securities and Investments Commission) and deregistered in 2006.
 
Certainly if members learn they are voting for a very confused and muddled up lady they should vote no!
 
And as for her being  "Accepted by the National Executive three weeks ago."???
 
No! The party has no "NATIONAL EXECUTIVE" that was her deregsistered party wound up in 2006! So what is she talking about?
 
And three weeks ago ... I think everyone was in the  dark that long ago?
 
The present One Nation party now has a "National Committee" and the present party chairman gave NO PROPER NOTICE of the proposal for him to step down and Pauline to take his place in the email in which he asked for a reply by "RETURN EMAIL VOTE".  See below.
 
 Insult the members by keeping them in the dark and slide the decisions in under the mat? Is this how the great One Nation party is now to be run?

To members of the National Committee.
 
The Queensland division (at State Division level) is holding a special general meeting of members on Nov 29th 2014 to determine a proposal to change the name of the Queensland Division of the Party back to its origins,ie; Pauline Hanson's One Nation (Queensland Division) (see clause 11.(iii) )and appointing Pauline as its Leader. We are doing this as a way forward for the Party here and I ask that you consider this for the other remaining States also.
 
Further I would like your vote to approve to appoint Pauline Hanson as National chairman of this Committee and accept my resignation as currently appointed under those circumstances.
 
I will remain a National Committee member in my capapcity as State Secretary.
I know we have dimminished in numbers following the resignation of the Victorian Division representatives but our constitution allows such for us remaining to carry on.  
 
I ask that you please consider these words for your approval and indicate your acceptance or otherwise of the appointment of Pauline as National Chairman by return email vote......Rod Evans.

 
Mr Evans email is barely coherent!
 
Now everyone who understands the laws which govern business meetings knows you must GIVE REASONABLE NOTICE of such a motion or vote! You can't just slide a matter of such importance through by return email.  Shonky!!! Shonky!!!
 
But it gets worse.
When contacted, a number of the interstate presidents and executives knew little or nothing of the carry on up in Queensland. So were Evans, Hanson and Co trying to pull the party away from the state divisions and change the name on the sly. If so. Why?
 
Well. Follow the money. There's an election soon in Queensland so there could be money there?
 
And of course there is the several hundred thousand dollars the electoral commission received way back when the party was Pauline Hanson's One Nation Limited - prior to 2006. Could Pauline and boys in Queensland be entertaining a silly idea that they can get that money back? Otherwise why change the name - when years ago Pauline herself commented that she wouldn't always be with the party?.
 
Perhaps Pauline needs to be reminded that the money still with the electoral commission isn't hers. It belonged to those who donated it to save her tail.

A SPECIAL MESSAGE FROM PAULINE HANSON

The message below "A SPECIAL MESSAGE FROM PAULINE HANSON" appeared on the One Nation national website last night at around 1.49am 18th November 2014 but was almost immediately removed.
 
It is clear from the message content that Pauilne Hanson and the Queensland Division have shot themselves in the foot... again! 
 
Pauline says "I am proud to announce that I am once again at the helm of One Nation, after accepting the position as National Chairman and Leader."
 
Wait a bit!!!!! 
 
FACT ONE: Pauline Hanson is not on the National Committee of One Nation. That's is a constitutional requirement prior to anyone being voted chair person by a quorum of members of the National Committee!  What she claims simply can't happen because she's in breach of the National Constitution of the party.
 
FACT TWO: Pauline Hanson could not possibly be voted State President in Queensland until the General Meeting (below) of the Queensland State Division due on 29th of this month!  So right now she holds no position in the party for her to announce she's "at the helm" of anything? 
She's got the cart before the horse!  If she believes she is, she's either psychotic or else she owns a time machine. 
 
FACT THREE: SHE IS OUT OF ORDER!
 
FACT FOUR: The meeting on the 29th is now billed (see below) as a 'PRE-LAUNCH' meeting. Pre-launch of what?  Nobody in the state divisions of the party knows about this so called coup d'etat!  Certainly no member knows anything about it! 
The Mad Hatters tea party certainly appears to be in full swing up there in Queensland.
 
FACT FIVE: The National Committee is in disarray and probably cannot field a legal, constitutional quorum, so it cannot function.
 
FACT SIX: The warnings of One Nation Western Australia (which remains a legal part of the One Nation party recognised by the Australian Electoral Commission) have been ignored and our executives are insulted by crude emails from certain people on Queensland executive. 
 
All members of One Nation should be aware that your party is about to be taken over by four people - Hanson, Evans, Savage and Nelson and will soon look very much like a private business rather than a political party.

We believe Pauline Hanson has decided to run with the rats, just as she did in her failed electoral attempt in 2013. The gal has got is wrong... yet again!

The policies of One Nation were always sound. Sadly, our opinion, Pauline Hanson's management of the party was not! She failed before. She will fail again.
 
To save One Nation you must protest loudly and publicly and refuse to accept this nonsense from Queeensland!
 
As Pauline says below "Let those who oppose us, those who disregard Australian values and way of life know that I am back."
 
Well okay, let's tell everyone the woman who wasted millions of dollars, burned and dumped hundreds of members, and ignored many of those who supported her through thick and thin is back
 
That'll work.... er won't it!?
 
Cheers,

A Special Message From Pauline Hanson

Dear One Nation Members and Public Supporters,

Let me first thank you for your support and commitment to One Nation, the party I founded in April 1997. One Nation was born because many Australians felt they were disregarded by other political parties and their voices were not being heard. My platform onto the political stage was nothing more than daring to raise issues that were politically incorrect and having a common sense approach rather than an elitist attitude, but most of all honesty. Australians saw me as a breath of fresh air on the floor of Parliament and flocked to join as members. At the height of Pauline Hanson’s One Nation we had 18,000 members.

In 2002 I was forced to resign as National President of Pauline Hanson’s One Nation by the National Executive. After a relentless campaign by the Liberal and Labor parties to destroy One Nation, and myself, I was convicted and sentenced in 2003 to serve a term of three years imprisonment. After 11 weeks, my sentence was quashed on appeal.

I was terribly concerned for Australia when first in Parliament, but more so now. We are witnessing large amounts of our prime farming land and housing sold to foreign ownership. The push for multiculturalism is only segregating us as a nation and not uniting us as Australians with the same values, beliefs and laws. Halal is being forced on us by 2% of the population. Increased violence, educational standards well below world standard and our health care are a lot to be desired. Our elderly are living in poverty and families struggling to make ends meet.

One Nation has been floundering for many years, this is not what I want for the party I founded on Australian values and a fair go. I am proud to announce that I am once again at the helm of One Nation, after accepting the position as National Chairman and Leader.

It’s time to reignite our voice. It’s time to let the political parties know they cannot take us, the Australian people, for granted.

Please join me at the special meeting to be held in Caboolture on the 29th November 2014. Let those who oppose us, those who disregard Australian values and way of life know that I am back. Invite your family and friends to attend my public address - more than ever I need your support, but more importantly Australia and our future generations need ours.    


Yours Sincerely,

Pauline Hanson

One Nation W.A. says, “Enough is enough!!  Game on!!”

One Nation Western Australia Division AGM for 2014

 


The One Nation Western Australia Annual General Meeting held Sat 25th October went well. A good turn out. We had the necessary quorum and a bundle of proxies from members. All reports were presented correctly and proxies (including those from interstate) nominations etc handled by an independent person.


The WA division has lost a few members, but the bank balance is up on last year. All members of the previous state executive were returned and three new ex-officio positions confirmed.


In addition, a formal motion was passed to appeal an AEC delegate’s recent decision not to replace the party registered officer. This matter will now return within 28 days directly to the three Commissioners of the AEC as a formal appeal from the W.A. division and interstate members, as well as the original signatories.


The Minutes of the AGM also now reflect that our state division's members agreed unanimously that we continue to seek the party registered officer's removal for dereliction of his duty to endorse candidates from WA at the last federal election. We are supported in this by our "out-of-state members", supporters and friends in NSW, Vic, SA and the NT. We actively seek further interstate support in this matter. If you can help, call 0415 030 442.


This action will be secondary to ONWA actively seeking members to re-register federally and also register in WA. That will cover all of us when/if One Nation (Beenleigh "head office") is de-registered at the next AEC review.


All of our members and friends are fully aware the National Committee of One Nation is dead and the position of chairman is a toothless phantom with no quorum of properly elected executives. There have been no AGMs in NSW or Victoria (closed down), and SA is losing members fast through aging and inaction.


Many members are also aware that neither the Queensland State division of the party or the dysfunctional national committee have any lawful basis to claim they manage the One Nation WA state division as stated on the national website. They also have no authority to direct inquiries from or about WA to Beenleigh Queensland for what appears to be the sole purpose of scamming money.


No committee "manages" a lawfully incorporated association as the WA division is, so the claims made on the national website W.A. contact page and authorised by the above mentioned party registered officer are false and grossly misleading!


The claim that all membership money from WA should go through Beenleigh in Queensland  is  just  another money creaming scam!


Finally any claim that the One Nation WA website is fraudulent is also an outright lie.


Our members have basically said, "Enough from Beenleigh; game on; rebuild the party and ignore the ‘head office’ blather.” And so as the only state with a full, properly elected executive and party incorporation, W.A. will now take the lead in rebuilding the party.


For further details, please feel free to call the State Director, Mr Brian McRea on (08) 9725 3320, or W.A. State President Lyn Vickery on 0415 030 442.



It's Not Exactly 'Shirt fronting' But Tony Abbott Did Confront Vladimir Putin Over MH17


Perspective from Business Insider Australia - Peter Terlato 12th Nov 2014


While it wasn’t exactly the shirtfronting confrontation Australian Prime Minister Tony Abbott promised, he was direct in a 15-minute meeting with Russian President Vladimir Putin overnight, saying that Australia has information suggesting flight MH17 was shot down by a Russian missile from inside Eastern Ukraine.

Abbott declared that if these sources were accurate, it would be a very serious matter, and referred the President to a precedent where the US had inadvertently shot down an Iranian civilian aircraft in 1988 and had agreed to pay $61.8 million in compensation.

During brief talks at the APEC leaders’ summit in Beijing, the Prime Minister told Putin that Australia was in possession of intelligence advocating a missile from a launcher that had come out of Russia, was fired from inside Eastern Ukraine and then returned to Russia, the SMH reported.

The meeting of the two heads of state was originally expected to take place on Australian shores at the G20 Summit in Brisbane this weekend.

However, after the Kremlin advised that it was “unlikely” Putin would engage Abbott in bilateral talks in Brisbane, Abbott obviously decided Beijing would be a more appropriate arena.


and another perspective ...


Putin and Abbott urge quicker MH17 probe
From Aljazeera news 10th Nov 2014 
 
Russian leader and PM of Australia, which lost 38 passengers in the crash, agree to have speedy and "unbiased" probe.
Last updated: 11 Nov 2014 09:41
  
Abbott, left, had threatened to charge at Putin before the Beijing meeting but did not carry out his threat [Reuters]
President Vladimir Putin and Australian Prime Minister Tony Abbott have urged a quicker probe into the MH17 crash but the two leaders appeared to avoid diplomatic butting of heads, the Kremlin said.

Abbott had famously vowed to "shirtfront" Putin - an Australian Rules football term in which a player charges an opponent - over the downing of Malaysia Airlines flight MH17 in July, in which 298 people died in rebel-held eastern Ukraine, including 38 Australian citizens and residents.

"The catastrophe of the Malaysian airliner was the main topic of discussion between Vladimir Putin and Tony Abbott," the Kremlin said in a statement after the leaders met at the APEC summit in Beijing.

"The leaders have robustly spoken out in favour of speeding up the investigation of the reasons for the tragedy."

"The unacceptability of a situation when experts cannot get to the crash site has been noted," the Kremlin added.

"Vladimir Putin stressed that from the very beginning Russia consistently demanded that the investigation be unbiased, quick and effective."

Separately, Putin's spokesman Dmitry Peskov told the state news agency RIA Novosti that Abbott did not appear to deliver on his threat.

Asked if Abbott managed to "shirtfront" the Russian leader over the loss of Australian lives, Peskov said: "It appears that he did not try."

Anger at Putin was so fierce after the MH17 tragedy - Kiev and the West say the plane was blown out of the sky with a missile supplied by Russia - that some said Putin should be banned from coming to Australia.

But Abbott also wants the G20 to stay focussed on its economic remit, and sought instead to meet Putin in Beijing rather than Brisbane, to get the MH17 conversation out of the way at APEC first.

Separately, the Kremlin said Putin also discussed the Ukraine crisis as well as Iran and Syria with US President Barack Obama.


COMMENT:  Australia's priority and first concern must be the truth for the families and loved ones left behind after the MH17 disaster - not politics. Lyn Vickery - President ONWA.



Opinion
Gough Whitlam a martyred man of myths
by: Miranda Devine From: The Daily Telegraph October 22, 2014 12:00AM 


GOUGH Whitlam made a much better legend than a prime minister. No sooner had the news broken yesterday of the death of the former Labor prime minister in a Potts Point nursing home at the age of 98, than the ABC airwaves erupted in tearful hyperbole.

“This country would not be Australia without Gough Whitlam,” said one weeping caller to ABC 702.

“Devastating, devastating,” said former Hawke government minister Susan Ryan. “The loss to the nation is just indescribable.”

“Whitlam knew what government needed to do,” opined playwright David Williamson. “With-out Whitlam where would Australia be? … We would be like America where if you’re poor you die.” And on and on it went all day. The myths, the exaggeration and the outright lies.

Gough Whitlam led a chaotic big-spending government for less than three years between 1972 and 1975, reaching high farce in the shady Khemlani Loans Affair, and ending when he was dismissed by the governor-general and lost the ensuing election in a catastrophic landslide. That’s the truth.

But if you consumed any news yesterday you might believe that Whitlam was a visionary genius who single-handedly ended the White Australia policy and the Vietnam War, opened Australia to Asia, ended discrimination against women and Aborigines, gave university education to poor people, and was overthrown by the CIA in cahoots with Rupert Murdoch. In fact the best thing that ever happened to Whitlam was to be dismissed from office, because he became a Labor martyr, and never had to account for the devastation he wrought on his country and his party.


The Left has always been better at making myths than conservatives, and none is bigger than the myth of Gough, created and burnished by the self-described “Great Man” himself, a superb showman with a brilliant wit, charisma and an optimistic disposition.

Whitlam is crucial to Labor lore because they think it proves theirs is the party of “enlargers” and reformers, whereas the Liberals are just agents of resistance.

Among the myths is that Whitlam was a western suburbs kid made good, like Paul Keating, when in fact he was a Knox boy. The son of a senior public servant, he grew up in Turramurra and Mosman and other Melbourne and Canberra suburbs.

Not that there’s anything wrong with that. But it’s amusing that Mark Latham, who later ­inherited his seat of Werriwa, a genuine westie and class warrior, who once boasted of hating ­people from Mosman, would wax lyrically yesterday about “the greatest-ever Australian”.

Alan Reid, the most senior press gallery journalist of his time, wrote of Whitlam in his definitive 1976 book The Whitlam Ventures that he was “the quintessence of upper class suburbia … He was pedantically precise of speech, sloppy in action.”

Yet Whitlam was fantastically good at self-promotion. As Malcolm Turnbull said yesterday: “He will be given credit I imagine for many things that were equally or perhaps even entirely the achievements of others.”

Whitlam claimed to have ended (Labor’s) White Australia policy when it was actually Harold Holt’s government, on March 9, 1966, which changed immigration policy so that race was no longer a criterion for entry.

Those who were uni students in the 1960s also remember it was Robert Menzies who effectively scrapped fees by introducing Commonwealth scholarships so any student who did well in high school could go to university for free and receive a living allowance. Whitlam just removed the competitive aspect and extended university to anyone, regardless of aptitude.

Whitlam’s proposals for modernising Australian were really to introduce welfare state measures that were popular in continental Europe at the time. If he did transform Australia it was to start us down the road from self-reliance to entitlement so that half the ­nation is now on welfare.

Yet the arrogance of Labor’s mythmakers would have us believe Australia was a terrible country ­before Whitlam.

Thankfully, John Howard’s book The Menzies Era rescues Australia from such slander.

He shows it was the Menzies era which utterly transformed the Australia, “bequeathed to the incoming Labor government in 1972 after 23 years of Coalition government’’. Howard wrote the book to “provide a substantial rebuttal of 30 years of consistent myth-making … It’s a hard slog,” he said.

Yes it is. But the Whitlam Myth has gone so far into fantasy that it may become toxic.

It’s what brought us Julia Gillard and Kevin Rudd, both of whom yesterday declared Whitlam had been their inspiration.

As a shiver runs down your spine, hold on to the memories of how bad the Gillard-Rudd era was, because in another 30 years they, too, may be mythologised, their faults replaced by falsehoods.

Australia Just Announced New Sanctions Against Russia

Peter Terlato Sep 1, 2014


Prime Minister Tony Abbott announced in Parliament today that Australia will increase its sanctions against Russia, matching the levels of the European Union.

Australia’s expanded sanctions include:

•restrictions on arms exports;
•restrictions on the access of Russian state-owned banks to Australian capital markets;
•preventing the export of goods and services for use in Russia’s oil exploration or production;
•restrictions on Australian trade and investment in Crimea; and
•targeted financial sanctions and travel bans on an additional 63 Russian and Ukrainian individuals and 21 entities.
In a press release from the Prime Minister’s office, the Government outlined concerns with the escalating events in Ukraine.

The situation has recently worsened as Russia steps up its persistent and deliberate violation of Ukraine’s sovereignty. Around 1000 heavily armed Russian troops are now operating openly in eastern Ukraine, in defiance of Ukraine’s sovereignty, the international community and international law.

According to the release, Russia has ignored the international community’s call to de-escalate the crisis, resulting in the Government’s decision to expand Australia’s autonomous sanctions and travel bans.

“The bullying of small nations by big ones and assertions that might is right should have no place in our world,” Abbott said.

“Russia must understand that if it does not act to defuse the current situation, the cost to its economy and international standing will grow.”

The sanctions are being coordinated with the US, Canada and Europe.

These measures build on Australia’s existing financial sanctions and travel bans, announced in March this year and the Government has not ruled out imposing further sanctions in the future.

Comment: In world affairs Australia is a little Koala ... Tony Abbott, please stop poking the Russian bear!


The Australian Government Wants To Let Business Hire Foreign Workers On 10% Less Than
Australian - Greg McKenna Aug 29, 2014,

The Government has a plan to allow regional business, struggling to get workers, to hire foreigners on a 10% discount to local workers, according to The Australian this morning which says the new rules were signed off this week.


Initially applied to Darwin, which is losing workers to the local Icthys gas project, The Oz says the new rules will then be rolled out “to other areas suffering an exodus of skilled workers rushing to join mining and gas companies”.

The Oz also says that “concessions” on skills and qualifications will also be considered if companies get desperate for workers and can show that they can not find appropriately skilled workers.

In an economy that has just seen a spike in unemployment to 6.4% and which is struggling to absorb the new entrants into the work force, this plan is likely to ignite political debate and a fight with those opposed to 457 visas.

But the reality is that Australia is a complex mish-mash of regional economies with different demands, drivers, inputs, outputs, populations, employment markets and workforces, and not the homogeneous single entity many assume.

COMMENT: One simple solution to ease this problem without cutting wages would be to allow these young people, usually students on their gap year from France, Italy, UK, Germany etc, to stay longer in the country before Immigration turfs them out!


Washington prepares to attack Islamic State targets in Syria
August 26, 2014
 

The United States intelligence and defense communities are preparing a long list of possible military targets in Syria for President Barack Obama belonging to the Islamic State, a terrorist organization holding ground throughout eastern Syria and northern Iraq.

The US government has stepped up its efforts to increase its knowledge of Islamic State activities and assets in and around Raqqa, the group’s nominal capital, after it finished taking over the region from the Assad government last week.

The US understanding of the reality in the portion of Syria under Islamic State control – what the intelligence community calls “visibility” – has been poor, as evidenced most publicly by a covert rescue operation in July that incorrectly identified the whereabouts of several Americans held captive by the group.

Clive Palmer's Company Just Lost A Legal Battle Against Chinese Owned Citic Pacific
Alex Heber Aug 20, 2014, Business Insider

Clive Palmer’s horror week just got worse.

After an epic rant about China on Monday night’s Q&A he has just been defeated in one of his legal battles against Citic Pacific, the company that supposedly provoked his outbursts.

The Federal Court today threw out his application to become a security operator at the Cape Preston port in Western Australia.

Palmer’s company, Mineralogy, was attempting to take control of port security operations from the Chinese giant.

Mineralogy argued the Federal Infrastructure Department erred when it appointed Citic as head of security at the port, The Australian reports.

That approval subsequently allowed Citic to begin exporting ore from the Sino Iron project in Western Australia late last year.


Clive Palmer goes on rant against China on Q&A, claims China govt are ‘mongrels’ who kill their own people and want to take over Australia

Perhaps Clive Palmer would do better to keep is personal legal and business squabbles to himself rather than let some TV host bait him into shooting himself in the foot!

Certainly many Australians are seriously concerned, and rightly so, about the rise of China and the possible threats it may pose to our country and to the wider world should it make the same mistakes other nations made in the twentieth century.

Arrogance is a terrible hook in the nose of any nation. It certainly led Germany and Japan to ruin.

China is a very old culture, yet growing rapidly now and there is an air of arrogance emanating from certain sectors The People Liberation Army (PLA) have made some pretty silly comments recently.

On the other hand Australia is young and expanding rapidly. We too need to beware of the sin of getting too big for our boots! Humility, wisdom and an eagle eye on our partners at all times will get us much further than calling them "mongrels".


Rants like Mr Palmer's aren't helpful, especially when China is our biggest trading partner.

Certainly our goverment must be wise in the way we deal. Certainly we know about China's rotten human rights record, the food poisoning scams and cheap junk products. Yes, we know about commie land barons over there kicking out peasant farmers.  But can Clive do anything about that?


Australia must always be on its guard. We must protect our values, our assets, our resources and our land.

Deep concerns exist about Chinese investment in domestic and rural property here. The government must stop the greed and signal an immediate end to the open slather purchase of houses, farms, manufacturing business and the control of Australian mining companies.

Investment is one thing. Control is very different. Australia must be absolutely firm about protecting our assets and borders and ever wary of those in for the quick buck and too hell with the consequences. The Chinese of all people respect firmness, maturity and wisdom.  It's a tragedy there hasn't been more from our governments both federal and state. Had there been, we wouldn't be in this mess.

That doesn't mean we need to be offensive to a valuable partner. Australia is a small country and one that could learn a lot from another small and very successful one - Switzerland!  We must become the Switzerland of the southern hemisphere.

A spokeswoman for the Palmer United Party’s Chinese born senator, Dio Wang, who holds a seat in Western Australia, told news.com.au Mr Wang had “no comment”.
He was busy preparing papers for the next senate session.
Wise move! Mr Wang was born in Nanjing, China, and emigrated to Australia in 2003. He has been an Australian citizen since 2009.
 
Palmer United Party Tasmania senator Jacquie Lambie’s today emailed a media statement and “opinion piece” regarding her boss Clive Palmer's tirade on Chinese “mongrels” on QandA last night.  “If anybody thinks that we should have a national security and defence policy, which ignores the threat of a Chinese Communist invasion — you’re delusional and got rocks in your head. Today China is controlled by an aggressive, anti democratic, totalitarian government. We need to double the size and capacity of our military right now.” Probably true, but do you think that would stop China Jacqui? You better get a lot smarter than just that girl!

BE CAREFUL HOW WE POKE THE PANDA!



Meanwhile, former One Nation leader Pauline Hanson has shocked Australia this morning by giving a measured and thought-provoking interview regarding Clive Palmer’s explosive tirade against the Chinese on the ABC last night according to a report from news.com.au. HERE

In an interview alongside former radio shock jock Derryn Hinch on Channel 7’s Sunrise program, Ms Hanson criticised Mr Palmer for his tirade against Australia’s biggest trading partner.

Palmer slammed over China tirade
PHOEBE WEARNE The West Australian August 19, 2014.

Premier Colin Barnett has rounded on Clive Palmer, saying his anti-China tirade represented the “worst of Australia” and his comments were offensive, abhorrent and damaging to WA’s relationship with China.


“From Western Australia’s point of view, we totally repudiate the comments that Mr Palmer has made and I will extend an apology to the Chinese on that basis,” Mr Barnett said. “He is an embarrassment. “(The comments) could be extremely damaging to the mining industry and to Australia and Chinese relations.

“China is our largest trading partner and WA counts for 70 per cent of Australia’s exports to China.”

The West Australian reports the following. 

Brendon Grylls, who was WA Nationals leader and minister for regional development when Mr Palmer was a major Nationals donor and investor in the Pilbara, said the Fairfax MP used to have a different tune on China.

“When I was dealing with Clive Palmer we were actually talking about building and growing the relationship with China… especially on the agriculture stuff, which is now coming to the fore,” Mr Grylls said.

“I spent a lot of time talking to him off the back of saying ‘can agriculture follow the resource sector?’

“He’s now a senior political figure and probably should choose his language more carefully on issues like this.”

The Palmer United Party leader is embroiled in a legal battle with Chinese state-owned company CITIC Pacific, which has accused the mining magnate of siphoning off $12 million in funds.


Comment: While One Nation is no fan of Colin Barnett he does have a few valid points!

MULTICULTURALISM HAS FAILED
MISERABLY!


BERLIN (AFP) – Germany's attempt to create a multi-cultural society has failed completely, Chancellor Angela Merkel said at the weekend, calling on the country's immigrants to learn German and adopt Christian values.

Merkel weighed in for the first time in a blistering debate sparked by a central bank board member saying the country was being made "more stupid" by poorly educated and unproductive Muslim migrants.

"Multikulti", the concept that "we are now living side by side and are happy about it," does not work, Merkel told a meeting of younger members of her conservative Christian Democratic Union (CDU) party at Potsdam near Berlin.

"This approach has failed, totally," she said, adding that immigrants should integrate and adopt Germany's culture and values.

"We feel tied to Christian values. Those who don't accept them don't have a place here," said the chancellor.  Full Story HERE



HISTORY REPEATING ITSELF...

Oliver Cromwell’s speech on the dissolution of Parliament in 1653:

    "It is high time for me to put an end to your sitting in this place, which you have dishonoured by your contempt of all virtue, and defiled by your practice of every vice; ye are a factious crew, and enemies to all good government; ye are a pack of mercenary wretches, and would like Esau sell your country for a mess of pottage, and like Judas betray your God for a few pieces of money.

    Is there a single virtue now remaining amongst you? Is there one vice you do not possess? Ye have no more religion than my horse; gold is your God; which of you have not barter’d your conscience for bribes? Is there a man amongst you that has the least care for the good of the Commonwealth?

    Ye sordid prostitutes have you not defil’d this sacred place, and turn’d the Lord’s temple into a den of thieves, by your immoral principles and wicked practices? Ye are grown intolerably odious to the whole nation; you were deputed here by the people to get grievances redress’d, are yourselves gone! So! Take away that shining bauble there, and lock up the doors. In the name of God, go!"

We in One Nation note Cromwell's words. The new Liberal Government is already showing weakness! Caving in to the new world order, the banksters and now the Prime Minister is consulting the Muslims?

How long before the Australian people say, as they did to the Gillard/Rudd governments, "In the name of God, go!
"



THOSE IMMIGRANTS, WHO ARE NOT AUSTRALIAN MUST ADAPT!

IF YOU CAN'T OR WON'T YOU HAD BETTER LEAVE!


Democracy allows us to make up our own minds.

Bureaucracy prevents us from sharing our thoughts.


Dictatorship controls our minds, thoughts and everything else.



POPULATION VIABILITY….WHO IS MAKING A STAND?
 
 Australia is a large country with only a very small portion around the southern and eastern coastlines housing the greatest number of our ever increasing population.
 
This view of Australia was recognised by European explorers from very early times, and halted settlement by those countries for several hundred years.
 
The small aboriginal population encountered here upon white settlement confirms that the country cannot support a large population, as aboriginals, although essentially hunter/gatherers had adopted an efficient existence and their small numbers reflected this reality.
 
Non aboriginal settlers have through their knowledge and tenacity pushed settlement to the extreme edges of our deserts where water is the dominant factor in life.
 
Some years ago a study into our available water resources stated: that our ideal population was around 12 million, with 23 million (Australian Academy of Science 1994: “Population 2040 Australia’s choice”) the absolute maximum in order to support a realistic and viable lifestyle…..WE ARE NOW WELL ABOVE THESE FIGURES, AND THESE PREDICTIONS ARE PROVING TO BE CORRECT!
 
Successive governments of both political persuasions have ignored these findings and bumble ahead with unbounded immigration and refugee policies which are rapidly approaching boiling point.
 
Even the GREENS who claim to be environmental watch dogs pursue this madness and in doing so present their true colours.

There is an outcry by Australians across the country as they see their environment and their lifestyle rapidly eroding into a third world existence pushed by leaders who march to the tune of a different band?
 
ONE NATION is the only political party who have put the interests of Australians foremost, and have had the courage to doggedly pursue this volatile question while a continuous barrage of “red neck” and “racist” drivel is leveled at them by those other parties who show more interest in serving other than their own countrymen and women.

We are told by mindless mouthpieces that the ¼ acre block and a family home is no longer a reality and that we should be prepared to live in rented flats and multi-story apartments where there is little room to keep a family car let alone a “tinny” or a caravan, and the only place for a vegie garden is on the window ledge?
 
While this is not so good for us ordinary Australians, Governments and Local Councils revel in the opportunity to cash in on the extra rates and taxes generated by such a plan.
 
Multinational companies rub their hands with glee as self-dependency is ripped from the hands of every day Aussies and all are compelled to rely on food and produce imported form poor countries at low cost and palmed off at extreme profit to householders cooped up in soul breaking conditions and without the opportunity to break from this oppressive lifestyle?

AND IT IS ALL BECAUSE OF THE RIDICULOUS IDEALOGY OF CRAMMING AS MANY PEOPLE AS POSSIBLE INTO OUR COUNTRY………”A STOCKYARD FOR CONSUMERS”.
 
REMEMBER THE TIME OLD ADAGE: YOU CAN ONLY RUN SO MANY SHEEP TO AN ACRE!
 
Once a bountiful country where we were able to provide all of the necessities of life while at the same time enjoy a free and casual lifestyle, our limited prime farming and horticultural land is now being broken up into postage stamp sized building blocks and turned into mundane lifeless and sprawling suburbs where the inhabitants spend half their life travelling to and from work, and at a spiralling cost in fuel and other resources.
 
HOW LONG CAN THIS MADNESS LAST?
With the huge influx of migrants entering this country after WW2 from Italy, and other European countries, where did they all go?..........straight to work in any job available and helped to build their futures, as well as our own, and at the same time became Australians as soon as they were able

Where do the majority of refugees and migrants from Africa, and poorer Middle Eastern and Asian countries go today?....straight to the cities and onto welfare and begin breeding at a rate far above that of native Australians.
 
WHERE IS THIS MADNESS LEADING US?
Undisciplined population growth is a path to destruction as has been seen in the cases of  Africa, Bangladesh, Central America, Mexico and any number of 3rd world countries where population has far outstripped the ability and even the desire in many cases to provide their own food and essential materials for a buoyant and vibrant economy.

Some republican movements and business groups in this country advocate a population of 100 million as they pander to the more money at any cost mentality of those multinational conglomerates, and greedy government and public funded entities. AND WHO ARE THE BUNNIES? ................NOT: “BRER RABBIT” OR “BUGS” BUT THE GENERAL POPULATION OF OUR COUNTRY, REGARDLESS OF POLITICAL LEANING.
 
Australians have been played for suckers by political parties of all leanings for a long time now, and the new resurgence of interest in ONE NATION is a glimmer of light in an otherwise uncertain future for us and our children.

A RUSSIAN EXAMPLE
2014

The soft Russian occupation of the unstable and disintegrating Crimea was in glaring contrast to the tactics employed by America and Europe and unfortunately Australia in their management of a troubled neighbour, or in America’s cases: countries that will not kow-tow to the “International sheriff”.

While Putin quietly places troops in a security position without firing a shot or destroying infrastructure, and supports a referendum by the people to solve the problems internally, America and its allies barge in destroying countries and killing civilians and in so doing providing their own corporations with a rebuilding program which fattens America while at the same time rendering the conquered country bankrupt to the international banks.

The Russian bear has stared down the American hamster and Australia would do well to sit and observe rather than jumping into a murky pool as has been the case with Iraq, Afghanistan and a history of other international conflicts not of our concern.

As was the case with the Romans, America is collapsing for the same reasons and is bringing down her allies with her.

Australians beware!
