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?

“We cannot let our enemy define our reality”, Jewish writer, Henry Makow, April 11, 2019. Every time a misled Gentile uses the term anti-Semitism in relation to Jews, he or she is letting the Jewish hegemony of power define their reality. You are accepting their argument that they are want to be Semites. Most Jews do not have Semitic blood or genes in their systems. Most are European Caucasians, as for example, every member of the Israeli Knesset. They are not Semites. And Jews call the real Semites, the Palestinian Arabs, “anti-Semites” for criticising their genocidal programs. A trifling point,… Read more »

……………………..

Mark Fowler, an adjunct associate professor of law the University of Notre Dame, told The Sydney Morning Herald that RA would have to prove they were not terminating Folau’s contract because of his religion.

‘On what is publicly reported, it would seem hard to say that the action Rugby Australia is proposing is not because of his religious belief.’

THE CITY GATES — Bill Shorten wants control of the city gates. He has not the wisdom, the depth, the maturity, the intelligence, the understanding of history, the discernment, the insight, the judgement, the perceptiveness, the acuity, the sharpness of mind, the common sense, the astuteness, the judiciousness, the clear-sightedness to be given this responsibily.

Am I the only one who notices the ghoulish look as Ms Pliberserk peers darkly over Bill Shock’s narrow shoulders at almost every press conference, seemingly waiting for him to put his foot in his mouth, so she can slip a large carving knife into his spine? If the ALP gets up Bill might want to have a third eye surgically implanted into the back of his napper. Also a food taster could be a very good idea.

What a difference a year makes. 12 months ago Treasurer Morrison was praising Israel Folau’s strong character and applauding him for standing up for his faith after his comments about homosexuals. Fast forward and PM Morrison thinks Israel Folau’s comments about homosexuals is ‘terribly insensitive’.

I was very saddened to see The Oz come down on Israel Folau https://www.theaustralian.com.au/sport/rugby-union… It is obvious that the Oz senior sports writer is under the pump of Australia’s gay media lobby. Israel has more right than anyone to express his views, religious or otherwise, because he actually holds strong religious beliefs and not just protecting (or hiding from) a dubious lifestyle choice. Just like all of us he has the right to sell his skills to whomever he wishes and, to take his talent elsewhere. And like everyone in a free society, we the public, have the right to… Read more »

FOLAU WINS : “Folau’s new contract, signed in October, reportedly included a social media clause that would allow rugby bosses to sack him if he was found to have posted any further offensive material on social media following his initial attack on homosexuals last year, where he publicly stood against same sex marriage. The players’ association now claims the social media clause may violate the terms of the Collective Bargaining Agreement signed between the players and RA. RUPA claims, under the terms of the CBA, that “the only additional clauses that can be inserted into a standard player contract are… Read more »

Good one Viv. A great account of how we built this nation. Where do all these Lefty Millennial dick heads think Australia’s wealth and prosperity came from? And yes, our good fortune and resources are being eyed off by many of the countries and regimes that the younger generations aspire to become. The fools would give it all away.

US President Donald Trump is giving “strong considerations” to the idea of releasing undocumented migrants into cities run by opposition Democrats who have instituted immigrant-friendly policies.

There are some 11 million estimated undocumented migrants in the US.

The Washington Post reported the idea, as initially floated, was to release immigrants already in detention into so-called sanctuary cities.Sanctuary cities are local jurisdictions that refrain from co-operating with federal immigration authorities to detain undocumented immigrants for possible deportation.

Those localities argue that it is not their responsibility to help enforce federal immigration laws and that doing so could hinder policing efforts within communities.
