Breaking the Backbone of Australia

Since the days of the gold rush and the wool boom, Australia has always relied heavily on its great primary industries – mining, farming, forestry and fishing and their supporting transport, energy and processing industries.

First was the export of hides and tallow, wool and timber. Then came the great discoveries of gold, coal, copper and silver-lead-zinc, followed by exports of wheat, butter, meat and cotton.

Luckily the effects of droughts in the rural sector were often moderated by booms or new discoveries in minerals.

Today government royalties and taxes on our massive exports of coal, gas, iron ore, nickel, copper, silver-lead-zinc, aluminium and uranium have become the main-stays of the tax-consuming and ever-growing state and federal bureaucracies.

These back-bone industries, directly or indirectly, have always paid the wages of most of the workers of Australia.

The Backbone of Australian Industry

Every one of these primary industries must have three things –

  1. secure access to resource-rich land;
  2. reliable low-cost energy for production, extraction, processing and transport;
    and
  3. reliable water supply.

These are the three things most threatened by today’s Chicken Littles.

Every day, vested interests, toxic environmentalists and green alarmists (often foreign-funded or tax-exempted) are using every worry they can discover or invent to break the backbone of Australia – global warming, species extinction, pollution, UN dictates, and land rights for everyone except those currently making productive use of the land.

They favour pest-ridden scrubs of woody weeds over productive grasslands and encourage farm invasions by vegan militants and media stirrers.

They prevent construction of new water conservation dams and weirs, insist in letting more stored “environmental” water flow back to the sea, and then spend billions on desalination plants to get that water back from the sea.

They close-the-gate to explorers, use death-by-delay to stop projects they disapprove of, throttle foresters and fishermen with ever increasing no-go zones, while sacred serpents or the “just three mines” policy smothers every uranium deposit discovered.

They re-define natural gases as “pollution” to be taxed, and now are driving whole industries offshore by forcing reckless conversion to high-cost, unpredictable intermittent green energy.

While politicians babble about dream-time electric cars, our huge transport fleet relies on imports of petrol and diesel refined overseas – Australia now has under 30 days of petrol and diesel supplies here.

As jobs disappear or migrate, welfare booms, and national bankruptcy beckons.

Australia is a poorly defended storehouse of under-utilised resources beside the teeming millions of Asia. Our un-appreciated assets include:

  • aluminium, nickel and cobalt in laterites from Greenvale to Cape York, to Mitchell Plateau, to Kalgoorlie;
  • rutile, zircon, ilmenite, monazite, silica sand and rare earths in coastal sands from Bathurst Island to Bunbury, in the Murray Basin and along the Sunshine Coast;
  • oil shales from Julia Creek to Gladstone to Mt Coolon and in most other states (not one shale deposit in Australia has yet been tested by fracking);
  • un-tested off-shore resources of oil, gas and methane hydrates in sediments on our vast continental shelf;
  • massive coal deposits in the Galilee, Surat, Bowen, Laura and Sydney Basins (all under green sabotage);
  • uranium deposits from Coronation Hill in NT, to South Australia and in the Harvey Range in Queensland;
  • vast fresh-water resources that regularly flood from coastal hills into the seas from the Gulf of Carpentaria to the Northern Rivers of NSW and down the Murray-Darling Rivers;
  • huge resources of free-range protein in mobs of wild rabbits, pigs, kangaroos and camels;
  • a wide continental shelf of marine life for harvesting or marine farm development.
  • Today, our Asian neighbours come as tourists and diligent observers to marvel at the backbone resources we have sterilised or neglected.

What will they come as tomorrow?

The Greenies and all the other parties trying to outdo them are wetting their panties about “species extinction” of all endangered species except one. Ethnically White Europeans. They are cheering on our extinction. Only Fraser Anning gives a damn for securing our people and a future for White children.

Scientists have just proved, via ancient ice samples, that Co2 is same now as it was 3 million years ago. The low surface atmosphere has remained constant in composition, but pollution of the face of our Earth is a disaster, with deafforestation and great rivers permanently poisoned. And then their is human excrement all over the streets of Chicago city. Be like Inky’s filthy bedroom.

Has Tony Abbott seen the writing on the wall and made the jump to the Senate yet ?
It’s long odds to believe Warringah will give the backbencher another chance .
But in the Senate Tony WILL receive the percentage required without too much effort
Be settled for 6 years and as a Senator will NOT be be a leadership threat so should get a Ministry if LNP win
Pragmatist or Gambler ? Not much time left to decide

Last night at 6.30 pm this was the state of the electricity generation in Australia.———- black coal 14763MW brown coal 3498MW gas 2856MW hydro 2405MW wind 1768MW solar nil TOTAL 25,290MW Wind and solar were 7.00% of the generation capacity at this time. Looking at these figures is it not amazing that we get the Billy B`s of this world going off their heads about renewables. Seven precent of our power last night was from wind (Solar nil), it is just like CO2 a trace gas in the atmosphere it is all too small to bother about. With this in… Read more »

Bad news if you own shares in the major Australian manufacturers / exporters but good news if you are an Australian mother who may have had issues sourcing product from the local supermarkets.

Why is Whitlam in particular venerated by socialists? Why are so many other socialist *heroes*. Think of all the *creator* industries that are no more & ask, why would any labor voter even think that the destroyers of those industries has their well being at heart? Socialists think well ahead, if you don’t think that have a glance at their early literature & the destruction of Australia’s industry had to come about, in order that we arrive at where we are now. We are de-industrialised we rely on China, Japan anyone in the entire world but our selves. We are… Read more »

THE DUTTON SAGA. What did Dutton actually say? Mr Dutton told ‘The Australian’ there were plenty of people living with a disability in the seat of Dickson. “A lot of people have raised this with me. I think they are quite angry that Ms France is using her disability as an excuse for not moving into our electorate,” Mr Dutton said. “Ali has been telling people that even if she won the election she won’t move into our electorate. She has now changed that position, but I don’t think it is credible.” Since the public media concocted outrage at Dutton,… Read more »

I support Israel Folau and the Sultan of Brunei in their sentiments. Arse plugging is the ultimate unnatural act and transmits diseases. Arse pluggers’ adoption of children and the use of breeder females is morally repugnant. Whilst the Stinkys and such will not agree, due to their perverse sexual undertakings, homosexuality should be banned and a crime against Nature.
Pooftas can be rededucated out of their mental illness and can be attracted to the hairy lassoo, but then the state of our disgusting women often precludes this; hence go to China.

I have not logged into this blog for some years. What I see after that lapse in time is a vast change in its tone and manner. They are changes for the better, notwithstanding a few of the old gang of lunatics are allowed to continue on with their silliness. I see the vile character, Sailor, no longer posts. Chopper and Stoney 23 seem to have disappeared as well.

South Africa is lurching towards another electricity disaster to make the Eskom disaster even worse.

It comes from “renewable energy”, which here usually means solar and wind.

These are excellent for off-grid uses, such as solar water heating, wind pumps on farms, and small electricity supply for households.

But they are useless for grid electricity (electricity on national electricity networks, such as Eskom’s). ………………………..

Rammer, I was being serious, but obviously jocular, about the state of Oz women. Young lads tell me that our new breed give it out on the first night and regard oral sex as no more than a kiss. Like their older sisters whom I have encountered, they pride themselves in swallowing. Such is the brainwashing of ever popular shows like Sex and the City, where Samantha is always sucking off some John. Chinese women are very much the opposite and make great companions. The Sultan of Brunei is taking the fat whores, many white women, off the streets and… Read more »

Please do not get sucked into the duopoly game, yes Whitless was the PM at that time but it wouldn’t of mattered who, they all were for it, the traitors. When gough was replaced what did Malformed Frazier do? Fuck all to change it, sweet FA, as it turned out with South Africa, Frazier the grazier was a bigger commo leftie than all of them, yet like now, Liberal voters thought the sun shone out of his arsehole.

Take a good look at the degenerate, highly obese state of Australian women. Most of them are worn out, long time riders of the cock carousel. Tattooed and pierced, tHey are not worth a crumpet. Loud mouthed, vulgar and dumb. Eg, watch the stupid cooking shows and mafs. Handsome, rich, intelligent men like me have given up on the local carousel variety and are attracted to beautiful Chinese women, who come with virgin certificates. They know how to look after a man, can cook and clean and are not overweight and foul mouthed. It is well worth a trip to… Read more »

What a joke, Peter Beattie giving Falou a lecture on morals! Beattie had to leave Qld before all his affairs caught up with him. It seems slavery is well practiced in Aus now with SPORT owning Israel Falou and telling him what he is allowed to do in his own time. I only watch RU when Falou is playing.

A disqualified driver who knocked down three women in Brisbane yesterday (Two of whom remain in hospital) blew five times over the legal blood alcohol limit. 28 year old, Deng Mayoul, claimed in mitigation “I didn’t kill nobody [sic] . . . That was an accident. I was on the phone and I made a mistake. You made a mistake when you were drunk? The thing went green and then I moved” Sounds like racist cops just picked on him.
