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?

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.

When I arrived as a 10pound tourist in 1967 there were more jobs than workers. Back then when you went for an interview you told the, prospective, employer you’d get back to them as you had several more jobs to look at .. happy days .. long gone!

EUSSR COLLUDING WITH IRAN EU’s Collusion with Iran by Judith Bergman April 13, 2019 at 5:00 am https://www.gatestoneinstitute.org/14006/eu-collusion-iran The main purpose of the Instrument in Support of Trade Exchanges (INSTEX) is to ensure that Europe — and potentially third countries — can continue doing business with the mullahs in Iran without risking US penalties for contravening US sanctions. EU foreign policy chief Federica Mogherini seems strongly committed to ensuring that Iran — and Europe — continue receiving economic benefits from the illegal, unsigned, and unratified Iran nuclear deal. Mogherini insisted that Iran is complying with the JCPOA. It is not.… Read more »

A bloody disgrace.

Offenders not charged after NT robbery

A 19-year-old woman was forced to lock herself in her bedroom for 20 minutes, while armed youths taunted her as they ransacked her Darwin home before stealing the keys to her partner’s car and taking off in the vehicle.

Ebony Sloan told Sky News she’d been left traumatised by the attack and says she’s furious the offenders won’t be charged.

I agree with most of what you’ve written there H02. Whitlam was probably the worst PM we ever had, but Gillard carried on the destruction just as he did, simply by denigrating the position of PM so that the majority of the population have lost so much respect for politicians in general. Where to from here ? In my opinion, we need politicians or candidates with guts, like Frazer Anning, we need people like him to band together with like minded peole and form a new co-ordinated party.

OK, let me get this straight. the “Commonwealth of Australia” is a for-profit corporation, listed with the United States Securities and Exchange Commission, and all the departments, agencies, authorities, courts and local councils in Australia, including the police and the tax office, are similarly for-profit corporations, presumably wholly owned by the “Commonwealth of Australia”. So, if the tax office wants me to pay income tax, then presumably there is a contract somewhere which I have signed, in full knowledge of what I was doing, that is, without having been subjected to fraud and misrepresentation, under which I have agreed to… Read more »

Scary stuff what the Democrats in one State are up to …

Colorado Democrats have passed a law which makes Colorado voters nearly irrelevant. Under their new law, a candidate could receive no votes in Colorado, and still receive the state’s electoral votes. Or conversely, a candidate could receive every single vote in the state, and not win the state’s electoral votes. The entire intent of the bill is to ignore the will of Colorado voters. Colorado Democrats describe this plan as “a move towards democracy.”
