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.

Backbone of Australia
BACKBONE OF AUSTRALIA – Image Source Credit: https://principia-australia.org/how-to-break-the-backbone-of-australia/

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?

I have just realised that in the retrial of Cardinal Pell the accuser did not even give evidence and be cross examined by video. Zilch. They replayed the video from the first trial. It beggars belief. Not only is a man’s reputation and liberty at stake, not only is the accuser allowed to give evidence by video with a coach present, he did not even do that at the second trial. Cardinal Pell was convicted with the accuser not having to even give evidence, as it might upset the accuser to go through the charade twice. This must be a… Read more »

In the Cardinal Pell charade no member of the public was allowed to watch the deluded complainant give bullshit evidence and be cross examined over 4 days nor is any transcript available, contrary to what Inky QC thinks. “Was it an open trial? Yes, mostly. No one was banned from watching proceedings, and members of the public did attend. In Victoria there is a high level of protection offered to complainants in sexual abuse cases, based on evidence about the impact of testifying in court, and to encourage victims to come forward. So the court was closed to everyone except… Read more »

PPers, you know Pickering Post was rated about 11th or 12th (I can’t quite remember) in the world? The best 15 Conservative sites in the world (what are considered to be) were reviewed and rated … P.P. came in, as I have said, at about 11th or 12th. The people concerned said some very nice things about Pickering Post .. I recall they were impressed by the articles, among other things .. and this was before the shiny new site.

Here’s a link to the abstract of a paper by Patrick Parkinson called, “Another Inconvenient Truth: Fragile Families and the Looming Financial Crisis for the Welfare State” about the unsustainability of government support for single parenthood: https://papers.ssrn.com/sol3/papers.cfm?abstract_id=1992740

The link needs wide dissemination because Parkinson’s critique of single parenthood is based on financial not moral grounds.

The recent televised sentencing of Cardinal Pell is reported word for word available for download, but nowhere is there any copy of the transcript of evidence. All buried in darkest secrecy by the Marxists/Freemasons. This would give Stalin’s Russia a run for its money.

New York takes a dowdy, dirty second to the shining, clean glass palaces of a city such as Shanghai. SAN Francisco, Seattle, Baltimore, etc, are now filth cities, with tents lining city streets and shit all over the place. Soon Oz cities will become the same, with filthy African ghettoes and huge Muslim enclaves. This has all been planned by our Masters of the Universe (Chomsky) as is the destruction of the White society.

Hence, we are entering the north East Asian century of great success. Australian politicians, hell bent on bringing in some of the planet’s dumbest, underachieving peoples, are about to lower our intelligence quota considerably.

I think that explains their treatment of Israel Folau.

Clearly the game is now run by gutless PC-whipped losers terrified of criticism by the leftard commentariat.

Which is odd really. I would think a lot of people admire Folau for standing by his principles. It’s so rare these days.

Our moral backbone has been broken when Israel Folau is called a homophobe and against our lovely spirit of inclusion and diversity, when he expresses his religious belief that the disease ridden act of sodomy is wrong. He therefore loses his job and income and reputation. But our protected Muslims, in the name of diversity, are allowed to express their distaste for buggery and keep their grants and Centrelink payments. Our society is insane.

Milligan and the Victorian plods outed. Cardinal Pell should be released immediately. What a disgusting beat up between the Victorian Marxists/Freemasons and the ABC.

“Windschuttle believes that until now no one in Australia who has either covered or investigated the Pell case has mentioned the Gallagher testimony against Fr. Englehart in the American case because of slipshod research (Milligan) or a desire to have Pell convicted (the police of the Australian state of Victoria).”

Breaking the backbone of Australia? Why speak in the past tense? It was broken by Rudd, Gillard and Turnbull. Morrison has applied a band aid and nothing more.
We cannot expect any improvement from the forthcoming election no matter who wins.
Australia is the loser whichever way the result goes. Its only a matter of degree.

House Democrats Move to Make Trans Participation in Women’s Sports a Right

All but one Democrat in the House is co-sponsoring a bill that would require schools to allow biological males that identify as transgender females to participate in girls sports.

The legislation, called the Equality Act, would amend the Civil Rights Act of 1964 to make “sexual orientation and gender identity” protected characteristics. If signed into law, the bill would expand federal anti-discrimination law and have the effect of forcing public schools to allow transgender “female” men to play girls sports.
