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 – 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?

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. Conversely, the insanely warped anti Semitic calling him or herself Rinaldo continues to pollute the site’s atmosphere together with a bird calling himself Pelican and a person, lg, whose avatar is… Read more »

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 »

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.

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.

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.

Prior to the disastrous Whitlam regime of 1972 to 1975, Australia had a myriad of successful industries. This nation had a strong appliance and white goods manufacturing sector, with names like Sunbeam, Chef, Hecla, Lightburn, Electrolux, Metters and many more being made locally. The electronics sector was strong, with many brands of TVs and radios, such as Astor, AWA, Admiral, Pye, Ferris, Thorn, Kreisler, HMV, Rank Arena, Philips and many others being made in Australian factories. Of course, we know about our automotive industry, with Holden, Ford and Chrysler being manufactured in Australia, plus all the ancillary industries that supplied… Read more »
