Where In The Universe is This Australia?

 mal-gaggedIf anyone knows where this “AUSTRALIA” described below is situated in the universe, I would  like to move there.

The Australia on earth once followed the description below. It now suffers a corrupt parliament that ignores the peoples constitution and introduced one of their own (Australia Act 1986) all without a required referendum vote of yes from the people that now have their  rights violated.  Queens Elizabeth II removed as monarch head of state making a political appointed compliant Governor General the royal substitutes under the Australia act 1986 7.(2).

This duopoly government have removed freedom of assembly, control the judiciary no longer compliant to the Westminster system, legislated against freedom of speech and freedom of expression, host 24 hour surveillance control of the population while condoning a corrupt electoral system ensuring  only one of two political parties hold government to maintain total control.

AUSTRALIA SOMEWHERE ELSE

Internet link to this Unknown Australia introduction – [HERE]

Australia was one of the first countries to establish democracy in the modern world. In the mid-nineteenth century, Australian colonies set about writing constitutions which produced democratically elected parliaments.

From the 1850s to the 1890s, when few other countries in the world were democratic, the Australian colonies progressively established universal male suffrage, and were also among the first to give women the vote.

Australian democracy has at its heart the following core defining values:

  • freedom of election and being elected
  • freedom of assembly and political participation
  • freedom of speech, expression and religious belief
  • rule of law
  • other basic human rights.

DID YOU KNOW?

Australia is a constitutional monarchy—’constitutional’ because the powers and procedures of the Australian Government are defined by a written constitution and ‘monarchy’ because Australia’s head of state is Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II.

The Australian Government follows the British (Westminster) tradition. The Governor-General, representing the Crown, exercises the supreme executive power of the Commonwealth. In practice, the Governor-General acts on the advice of the head of the Government, the Prime Minister, and other ministers.

The Prime Minister leads a cabinet of ministers, each of whom has responsibility for a portfolio of government duties. Commonwealth ministers, including the Prime Minister, are appointed by the Governor-General on the advice of the leader of a political party or coalition which represents a majority of the House of Representatives in the federal parliament. Similar systems operate in the states and territories. There are also more than 560 local councils across the country.

The 1901 Constitution of the Commonwealth of Australia sets out the powers of the Commonwealth and states. Each state has its own written constitution. The High Court of Australia and the Federal Court of Australia have the authority to interpret constitutional provisions. Under the Constitution, the legislative power of the Commonwealth is vested in the federal parliament. The parliament makes laws, authorises the Government to spend public money, scrutinises government activities, and is a forum for debate on national issues.

All Australians citizens over the age of 18 must vote in both federal and state elections.

Parliament and Government

  • 14 million+ Australians vote for federal representatives
  • 226 federal representatives
  • 76 senators in the Senate
  • 150 members in the House of Representatives
  • 50%+ support needed to form government

NSW Snowy National Parks Boo-Boo Brumby Problem

On the 10th August 2009, SOS-NEWS received a letter from a person wishing to be known as “Boo Boo” who had read one of our stories on the shooting of Brumbies at Thredbo with high powered rifles.  Deciding to become a whistle blower quoted, “I am in a vulnerable position to retaliatory action from NSW National Parks” and request to be anonymous in any publications”.

Our investigators have confirmed important information contained in “Boo Boo’s” first letter and all subsequent letters along with several other whistle blowers information compiled in our extensive database.

Current Model (BAR's)

Current Model (BAR’s)

From “Boo Boos” letters we followed up one interesting item with a freedom of information disclosure that a  now retired manager of the lower snowy National Parks, held a “Commissioners Permit”(NSW Police Commissioner) for multiple 7.65mm NATO caliber Browning Automatic military assault rifles (BAR), and in the balance of probabilities the licensed transferred to another NP public servant.

The question here;

“why the hell National Parks would need fully automatic military assault rifles when farmers effectively use bolt action .223 rifles for shooting feral wild dogs, goats & pigs plus euthanaising large livestock like horses & cattle”?

 A few Hypotheticals for 2009 and prior to ponder.

If we were to suggest hypothetically;

Two old brumbies that lived on the lower slopes of Mt Janungal for many years in the 90’s and were accustom to hikers and fishermen seeking out campers who had the pleasure of their company were executed.

Two Kosciusko National Park staffers acting under management instructions to shoot these two tame brumbies near Mt Janungal that also involved an RSPCA person.

That this was not for humane purposes but for NSW National Parks opening of the rebuilt O’Keefe’s Hut to tourist.

That the presence of tame friendly wild horses and no sign of horse damaging the environment did not suit that area National Parks management personal agenda along with the Greenies agenda to have all our wild brumbies shot.

That careful timing of the shooting was just before winter limiting the chance of the shattered bodies being found before wild dogs, snow and time destroyed the evidence……... or did it?

Would you be upset?

If we were to suggest hypothetically;

That just outside the Kosciusko Marangle State Forest (with much having been handed over to National Parks) brumby wild horses were shot down in groups under a hail of heavy caliber automatic rifle fire.

Such weapons requiring police commissioner approval.

Would you be upset?

If we were to suggest hypothetically;

That horse riders appeared on a ridge in Kosciusko National Park while parks were aerial shooting training on goats and were driven off by the helicopter along with ground rangers who just happened to be there.

That reports received suggested loud automatic heavy gunfire was heard before the chase which took 4 hours costing many thousands of dollars, then the subsequent kangaroo court case and more dollars.

That wild horse numbers in that area were quietly reduced from weeks of this “Goat Shooting”.

Would you be upset?

 A once silenced and controlled public now seek clarity outside the media and government box of tricks.  Some we will furnish soon through Snowy Brumby Support Group ( www.snowybruymby.com ) as election time looms for politicians, as public servants cringe in fear of exposure.

Russia Ukraine & the Rest

USA war machineIf ever there was proof just how western neo-cons and war mongers of the USA push for change in the governments of sovereign countries; this story tells it and tells who is at the top of the pile.

History may well hold President Obama high in esteem for his ability to stand against those in the political and military power of the USA; those who see the need to wage war where perhaps they should never be.

  • Regime change in Syria would see Russia’s small Mediterranean naval base gone.
  • Regime change in Ukraine would see the huge Russian Sebastopol naval base in Crimea gone.
  • Denigration and blustering against Iran sees another Russian friend put under pressure and assuredly regime change there is a USA goal for the same reasons.

As Europe – hence the European Union – has expanded and the USSR – now just Russia – has been decimated geopolitically & Geographically, NATO has never let up on the pressures being applied to remaining Soviet borders.  This may be a good thing in some minds, but at some time there comes a need to call enough as being enough.

eu_countries_europeThere can be little doubt of a need for Russia to remain a strong independent nation.  It is a nation rich in minerals, precious metals along with energy such as gas and oil. Europe relies on these natural commodities and in winter, not only would Europe suffer, but many, many citizens of the myriad of countries who rely on such energy for heating etc.; would die.

While the world demonises President Putin and his nation over Ukraine and perhaps culpably & falsely so over the downing of MH17; the USA is shown to have a grubby hand; yet people in general – busy with their daily lives – don’t seem to have the time to see it that way.

BOTH SIDES OF PIG TROUGH DOING WELL AT PUBLIC EXPENSE!

Politicians and their obscenely excessive perquisites (perks)

by Renny Carter

Renny Carter

Renny Carter 53, is an old journo and one of the Liberal Party’s faceless men, who has opinions on anything in Contemporary life.

DON’T SHOOT JOE HOCKEY

The poor bastard has inherited a mess of unprecedented proportions that is going to take a long Liberal tenure to sort out and return to some normality – if at all.

The sad reality is that Australia is made up of three types of people. Workers, bludgers and pensioners. And is desperately trying to claw every dollar they can back from this hurting system…the magnifying glass has momentarily paused above the latter category. Which is sad. We expect the pensioners to be looked after in this country. We don’t want to see elderly people homeless and destitute in Australia. And unlike Italy and Japan – we don’t have a culture of always looking after our senior citizens.

Gagging politicians perks

Pollies silent on perks

I have an immediate idea that could claw back quite a few millions. Means test the (expletive deleted) politicians for a start! Let’s take a few luminaries who really don’t deserve the largesse we give them.

The wastage in this area alone is horrendous and is a massive burden on the taxpayer. Moreover, is it justified? Do we get any value for money? The latest revelation that both Rudd and Gillard get a $200,000 salary for the rest of their natural lives plus enormous travel allowances, office accommodation and staffing costs is an insult given that neither was poor to start with and both now have ‘jobs’. They are young enough to work. Younger than me! If I have to keep working until I am 70 plus, why don’t they?

A study in 2010 by the Daily Telegraph revealed that Mr Rudd, at 52, a young ex-prime minister, will receive well in excess of $20 million worth of allowances if he lives to 85. This is despite the fact he had served just 2 1/2 years as P.M. at that point. This of course has altered even more dramatically with his additional tenure.

Once retired, he is entitled to his own office, worth about $120,000 a year in Brisbane for the rest of his life and four staff, which political insiders say will cost $240,000 a year. What? The Rudd’s new multi-million home doesn’t have room for a home office?

Mr Rudd would also be entitled to the lease of a car worth up to $55,000 for the rest of his life. Leasing experts say this would be worth $1000 to 1500 a month. And Mr Rudd will receive all of these benefits on top of his wife’s estimated $210 million fortune!

Surely this good luck is the result of considerable ‘Government’ work being put her way and rules them out of any more wanton generosity from the Australian people.

Add to this, Gillard. This former communist who has now embraced the capitalist ideal with both arms and not a whimper of complaint I notice. She has already ditched the brick veneer in Altona for a swanky pool-side ponderosa in leafy Adelaide no doubt made possible by a $500,000 salary and ongoing perks.

My point is this. I have had to make cuts to my life because things change. The expensive office I used to lease in Melbourne is gone because, with the Internet I can now work from home. I now use consultants rather than employ up to 10 people which today would send me broke. I now drive a Ute because it is cheaper to register and insure. Cost cutting measures made to ensure I can continue to work in a country that is very much prejudiced against senior aged workers.

Mrs Renny is not happy. I have taken over a picturesque corner of our winter lounge room and in her words – I am a messer! When the drawing board comes out, which it does at least once a month, the kitchen table is also rendered unserviceable. Not to mention several square yards around it.

Why is it then that we continue to provide multiple millions to give these buggers swanky offices to run their now quite irrelevant lives from? I mean what has Hawke’s or Keating’s offices churned out in the past few years that justifies these silly extravagances? Books about them? Utterances from them? Both could be made from their kitchen tables surely! Does an Ex-PM really need an office that costs up to $14,000 a month? They have large homes with room for an office. None lives in a ‘bed-sit’. None even knows what a ‘bed-sit’ is! Maybe they should become pensioners and find out.

Just so I am being even handed here – according to the 2010 figures Keating was in fact the most frugal as he keeps staffing costs low by engaging people on a part-time and ad hoc basis.

Each former PM is entitled to at least two staff, including a senior private secretary, and the annual wages bill of each is nearly $300,000. Mr Keating saves about $70,000 a year by using staff as he needs them instead of full time appointees.

However, new figures have come to light revealing that in the seven months after leaving office, Mr Howard spent $109,892 on limousine services, evenly split between the government Comcar service and private hire cars. Mr Howard’s office rental was the highest at $13,853 a month, closely followed by former PM Malcolm Fraser, whose 101 Collins St office in Melbourne costs taxpayers $12,122 a month.

Former Labor PMs Whitlam and Hawke have offices on adjacent floors in Sydney’s Potts Point at 100 William St The monthly cost for each is $7464 and $7898 respectively. Mr Keating’s office is also in Potts Point, in Manning St, and costs slightly less at $7434 a month.

The former PMs also have their home and mobile phone bills paid by taxpayers, as well as unlimited allowances for publications, a private self-drive car, and air fares for them and their spouse. (Which really irks in the case of Therese Rein who has $210 million in the bank.

These are in addition to their pensions under the generous former Parliamentary superannuation scheme, which gives them a pension INDEXED TO CURRENT MPs’

SALARIES FOR LIFE!

The payout they receive depends on their length of service in Parliament, which is accelerated in the case of prime ministers and their final salary.

Each PM can usually expect to receive about 70 per cent of the incumbent’s salary, unless they chose to take a lump sum on retirement. (I thank the Daily Telegraph for doing the hard yards here with the figures and info.)

I have nothing against paying our PM a wage that reflects the importance of their job, but I have lots against them making millions from us when they a) don’t really need it and b) don’t really deserve it anymore.

But now, the ones facing the fiscal axe, are the poor pensioners who have worked and paid tax all their lives! As for the bludgers.. well that’s a whole separate issue.

THIS STORY MERITS AN APPEARANCE ON THE FRONT PAGE OF EVERY AUSTRALIAN NEWSPAPER – OF COURSE THAT WON’T HAPPEN, SO LET’S CIRCULATE IT FAR AND WIDE BY EMAIL

NATO push vs MH17 Passenger’s Justice

missileIt just doesn’t stop.  The main stream western media are so in bed with the propaganda being hurled out, that there is little chance of President Putin ever being allowed any credibility.

There are a number of facts which we all need to consider when each of us individually decides for ourselves  what is and what is not the truth about the downing of MH17 and the death of 298 souls believed as a result of a Russian made BUK ground to air missile system; known to the West as an SA-11. There are numerous versions of the BUK as it has evolved over the years.

  1. Russian military hardware is essentially the only weaponry hardware that fills the arsenal of both the Separatists and the Ukraine military.

Russia has been the main supplier of military hardware to Ukraine for many years and the training of this Russian made weaponry has of course been by Russian experts. In today’s war; the supply of weaponry to Ukraine is not all that clear. It is also not clear at all whether the Ukraine Separatists actually had access to a latest SA-11 missile battery; but it is a fact that the Ukrainian Army does have such in its arsenal.  Furthermore, it is reported the Ukrainian Army has deployed this weaponry into the Eastern Ukrainian battle ground.

  1. The Separatists may have appeared to some to be nonchalant about the bodies of the downed MH17 passengers; but when they had secured body bags the remains of the dead were efficiently  picked up.

The bodies of the lost souls from MH17 were strewn across the crash site and almost immediately the Separatists were instrumental in marking out the position of any bodies and parts found; just as would happen anywhere else there may occur such a tragedy.  With the obvious lack of body bags available to such a make shift army; it wasn’t until these bags materialised the movement of the deceased commenced from where they lay.  It was clear though; as soon as those bags arrived, this is exactly what occurred.  It was also clear those bags once filled with a deceased’s remains, they were being transported and carried as respectfully as possible under the circumstances.  The placing of the bodies alongside the road was purely an interim action and at no time was there any disrespect shown in the video footage spread about the world of this happening.

West Pushing Ukraine to War

 

Kerry1War is not about war in itself here; it is about the arms Industry, the energy resources and most importantly for the USA and its desires; it is about bashing Russia to the ground once and for all under the guise of NATO.(This you tube video is of the 5th March) To do this, the people of the Ukraine are essentially to be sacrificed.

The hawks of war from the West – point-manned by John Kerry & Victoria Nuland – are slowly getting their way. Five billion dollars of US aid to Ukraine which is touted to lead the country towards democracy but ostensibly was more about NATO getting closer to Moscow and wider-retreating Russia; is now having an effect.

They are leading a fledgling nation to civil war as we speak. Still those plans may not be working as well as desired by the western protagonists, or fast enough; hence the overt western troop deployments.

This in itself is bad enough, but the reality behind the scenes, is the slow yet steady build-up of those US and Canadian forces within the area, in Poland and Estonia etc is now bolstered by a Jet fighter group from Canada being based in Romania. Combined with the Harpoon Missile carrying USS Truxtun in the Black Sea; this fighter group seriously and provocatively threatens the Russian Black sea fleet at Sevastopol.

The whole mess is starting to exponentially explode and the causation for this in the first place will be hidden behind the smoke of war and the mushroom clouds of nuclear retaliation. History’s veracity of this fiasco will only be fact in the eyes and minds of the winners; yet it is doubtful if there will be any winners at the end of this conflagration.

  • President Putin is fighting for the long term survival of his nation Russia.
  • President Obama via the powers who hold more might than the office he holds, are fighting to preserve the military industrial machine which will wither to dust as the wars in Iraq and Afghanistan cease to be for the US.
  • The privateer armies – these are the contractors and mercenaries – they are almost assuredly already with boots on the ground in Ukraine and although they fight for money individually as unconscionable soldiers; as a led legion of death dealers, they fight for the global oil and energy companies along with the military industrial machine as paid spoilers of peace: In fact they will fight for anyone or cause that is capable of paying their fee.

AcademiCOMMERCIAL SERVICES – Academi

[Threats to the human experience manifest themselves in innumerable ways. When an event occurs that causes harm, chaos and disruption, the costs to recover can be incalculable. Critical Infrastructure operators and commercial facilities are increasingly targeted by adversaries in often violent and unrecoverable ways. ACADEMI provides facility assessments, tailored training and armed protection to high-risk commercial clients worldwide.]

The people of Ukraine are just fighting for the survival of their country; their way of life; their very existence.

China may sit on the fence, but which side they step off on may very well determine the fate of the globe.

Public Servants Wages revisited and Current Are Obscene

 

Adam Creighton, writing in the Australian back in 2012, reports on the obscene amounts of hard earned taxpayer funds paying for public service bureaucrats: “The head of the Department of Climate Change — one of many departments of dubious value — is set to earn at least $700,000 a year by 2014, a 39 per cent pay rise in two years…The secretary of the Prime Minister’s department will get $825,000 a year, more than any other and a 50 per cent pay rise.

These increases are preposterous. For instance, the head of the US Treasury earns less than $200,000 a year and the

Bank of England governor is paid about pound stg. 310,000 ($487,000). These are roles where the need to attract talent is surely at least as pressing…

The profusion of senior executive service personnel, the 2790 bureaucrats in Canberra who typically earn between $200,000 and $360,000 a year, is even starker. Their number remained broadly flat between 1984 and 2001, but since then their ranks have almost doubled. Entire suburbs of Sydney and Melbourne are paying tax to support these jobs.”

We decided to do a quick google search to compare the most recent salaries from some other politicians and bureaucrats in the US and UK to what is being proposed for our bureaucrats in 2014.

Here are the results:

 

Name Job Country Salary ($AUD)
Bill Daley White House Chief of Staff USA $167,000
Tim Geithner Secretary of the Treasury USA $186,000

MP Slams Stand Over Dictating Bureaucrats

“Here is a very rare Australian MP who after election day is standing up for his constituents against the entrenched out of control unelected bureaucracy dictating to politicians what they want”

Tony Abbott’s office has ‘obsessive centralised control phobia’

Liberal National backbencher lashes out at government’s handling of inquiry into development of northern Australia

A Liberal National party senator has lashed out at Tony Abbott’s office for displaying an “obsessive centralised control phobia” over every aspect of parliament, saying he will not be bossed around by “unelected advisers”.

The veteran Queensland senator, Ian Macdonald, who has voiced his disappointment at being passed over for a front bench post, levelled the fresh criticism over the government’s handling of an inquiry into the development of northern Australia.

Some Coalition members have privately raised questions about the level of control exercised by Abbott’s office, headed by chief of staff Peta Credlin, but Macdonald chose to make his views public in a short address to parliament on Wednesday.

Macdonald said he was “incensed” that two key elements had been left out of the instructions for the new joint select committee on northern Australia, including an examination of the zone tax system and a definitive programme towards sustainable development in the region.

He said there had been little or no consultation with senators with a special interest in the north over the terms of reference, arguing that the prime minister’s office seemed to have “an almost obsessive centralised control phobia over this and every aspect of parliament”.

Moving an amendment in the Senate on Wednesday, Macdonald said such action should not have been necessary, but the terms of reference that he “eventually discovered almost by accident” were not in accord with the Coalition’s previously stated aims.

Macdonald pointedly declared he was “not elected to this parliament by the prime minister’s office but by the Liberal National party of Queensland and by the voters of Queensland, particularly those in the north”.

“I have to advise them and my constituents that I’ll not have unelected advisers in the prime minister’s office telling elected politicians who are actually in touch with their constituencies what should and shouldn’t be done,” he said.

The original terms of reference asked for recommendations on establishing “a conducive regulatory and economic environment” in northern Australia. Macdonald’s amendment makes clear that taxation should be part of this examination.

Before the election, the Coalition promised to develop within 12 months a white paper on policy options, including building on existing key urban zones such as Darwin, Cairns, Townsville and Karratha.

“To this end, the efficacy and targeting of current relocation incentives and personal and business tax incentives could be reviewed,” Abbott said in a statement before the election. Kevin Rudd subsequently proposed cutting company tax in the Northern Territory but faced criticism over the lack of detail accompanying the campaign pledge.

Also added to the committee’s terms of reference is a specific requirement for advice on a white paper to detail government action needed to make the proposals a reality, including funding sources and a timeline for implementation.

Most elements of the terms of reference put to the lower house on 21 November will remain the same. The committee will consider policies for developing parts of Australia that lie north of the Tropic of Capricorn spanning Western Australia, Queensland and the Northern Territory.

It will look at opportunities in the mineral, energy, agricultural, tourism, defence and other industries, trade and investment links with the Asia-Pacific, critical economic and social infrastructure, “impediments to growth” and ways to encourage private investment and innovation.

The committee is expected to report about the middle of next year.
