Foreign investors on hunt for Aussie farms

(Sunday Night) China is on the hunt for new food sources to feed its one and a half billion people and its central government has ordered $3 trillion be spent securing food and farmland overseas. A significant share of that fortune is already flowing to Australia — a trend likely to increase with the signing of […] […]

The Biggest Oil Discovery In 50 Years?

(The Economic Collapse) In a virtually uninhabitable section of South Australia, a discovery has been made which could rock the world. Some are calling it the biggest discovery of oil in 50 years. Earlier this year, a company called Linc Energy announced that tests had revealed that there was a minimum of 3.5 billion barrels […] […]

Swan’s debt dive an act of financial vandalism

(The Telegraph) WHEN the scandal-ridden Whitlam Labor government hit the fiscal bricks in the mid-seventies it turned to Pakistani Tirath Khemlani to act as a conduit for a $4 billion petrodollar loan. […] Over the past four years, the Labor government has lifted the debt ceiling four times, from $75 billion, to $200 billion, to $250 […] […]

Cui Bono: Labor Fabians, Foreign Governments, or you?

(AustraliaMatters) Busy week for the Gillard international socialist fabian society. It must be tough work increasing our debt, exporting our jobs, giving away our taxes, and literally selling country Australia to foreign governments. Aren’t you glad your family fought and died in wars to help keep Australia safe for foreign investors? Yeah, Gillard could have […] […]

Swan-RBA “Upbeat” About Economy While Rothschilds Bets Millions On Collapse

(Australiamatters) Que the twilight zone music. Three Jewish billionaires Jacob Rothschild, John Paulson and George Soros are betting millions on a coming financial disaster. Meanwhile Australian Treasurer comrade Wayne Swan and the RBA are “upbeat” about the Australian economy that’s floating on a $300 billion Chicom credit card. If the Australian economy was “upbeat” another […] […]

Wake Me When The Australian Revolution Starts

(AustraliaMatters.com) Good thing about AM is we don’t need to update the site every two nano seconds with fresh content or rely on people buying crap from google ad banners. What am I saying? I’ve been lazy and to be quite frank, bored silly watching world goings from under the doona cover the last few […] […]

Nation’s debt tops $200 billion after Labor borrows $100 million per day

(Barnaby Joyce) Congratulations Wayne on your double century. We knew if you stayed at the crease long enough you would get there. Actually it didn’t take you long at all; you have been doing a “fine job”. I have always had “complete confidence” in your ability to give Australia its largest debt in history. Today […] […]

Dear Julia…from grumpy old people.

(Grumpy Old People) This is written on behalf of grumpy old people…like me, and maybe you!…to Julia Gillard.

Dear Julia, Please find below my suggestion for fixing our economy. You can call it the Patriotic Retirement Plan:

Part 1. There are about 350,000 people over 50 in the work force. Pay them $1million each severance for early retirement with the following stipulations:

  1. They MUST retire. 350,000 jobs vacant – unemployment fixed
  2. They MUST buy a new Australian car. 350,000 cars ordered – Car Industry fixed
  3. They MUST either buy a house or pay off their mortgage – Housing Crisis fixed
  4. They MUST buy $100 WORTH of alcohol/tobacco a week ….. and there’s your money back in duty/tax etc
  5. Instead of stuffing around with the carbon emissions trading scheme that makes us pay for the major polluters, tell the greedy bastards to reduce their pollution emissions by 75% within 5 years or we shut them down.

It can’t get any easier than that!

P.S. If more money is needed, have all members of parliament pay back their falsely claimed expenses and second home allowances If you think this would work, please forward to everyone you know. If not, please disregard.

grumpy old people letter continues here…

Chinese Government buying up our farms, says Senator Bill Heffernan

(DailyTelegraph) THE Chinese Government is buying Australian farms to directly feed its population, a senior Liberal said on the eve of a visit by a top Bejing official. The purchases were unmonitored and did not have to be approved by the Foreign Investment Review Board, Senator Bill Heffernan told Parliament. “And the distortion that has occurred in the Sydney home market because of being off the FIRB’s radar … could happen with agricultural land,” Senator Heffernan said.” Read more

This news is 12 months old, but still relevant one year on. We read elsewhere that the bought up Australian farms will only have Chinese workers on them. Christians have to hire devil worshipers for secretarial jobs etc or risk being fined, yet Australian’s can’t work on chicom farms in Australia? This needs to be challenged at the employee level. If Australian land (and water) must be given for foreign use, then only short term lease with option to cancel should Australian food hardship shortages arise.

Dear PM Gillard, England, Germany, France say "multiculturalism has failed"!

france england germany say multiculturalism fails

(AustraliaMatters) Sure, boat people fleeing their homelands we’ve been illegally occupying post 2001 are causing havoc here in Australia, but what about groups legally allowed in and don’t assimilate into our way of life? Which groups? Ask three European country leaders for the answer. We tried to ask PM Gillard but she wasn’t available for comment.

British Prime Minster David Cameron: “multiculturalism has failed”

German Chancellor Angela Merkel: “multiculturalism has failed”

French President Nicolas Sarkozy:  “multiculturalism has failed”

Mate’s rates: the friendships bought by the hour

(SMH) In Japan, an agency called Hagemashi-tai – meaning ”We want to cheer you up” – supplies clients with adult actors to impersonate blood relations, like a trial husband to leave towels on a bathroom floor, to help people practising for coming marriages. And in the United States, a growing industry of ”baby planners” helps mothers-to-be with everything from choosing the perfect moniker for their unborn child to fitting their car with a baby capsule. Now, the trend has hit Sydney. Read more

Renting friends? The country is going to hell in a morally declined hand basket.

Organic farmer to sue over GM contamination

farmer_steven_marsh.jpg(ABCNEWS) An organic farmer in the Great Southern says he will sue the owner of a neighbouring farm, after being stripped of his organic certification because genetically modified canola was found on his property. Kojonup farmer Steven Marsh alleges the GM material blew in from a neighbouring property belonging to Michael Baxter. Mr Marsh says he will lose a significant amount of income without his organic certification. "Clearly I'm facing losses because I've lost my premiums on those crops and products I produce," he said. "How long those seeds are going to be in that ground and viable now because they are just everywhere, we've got to ascertain." He says he has been left with no option but to take legal action. read more

Sadly with the foreign Jewish founded Monsanto family mega corporation looming on the horizon, these matters never go to well for the organic farmers that don't want to bend a knee to the same family company that used to buy and sell human slaves. Canadian organic canola farmer Percy Schmeiser and many others know Mr Marsh's coming plight all to well.

Ipswich workers face sack days before Christmas

(CourierMail) A MANUFACTURING business west of Brisbane will close its doors, leaving more than 140 staff out of work just days before Christmas. Ipswich-based Australian Hardboards will shut down on December 17 after operating in the city for more than 50 years. […] Ipswich mayor Paul Pisasale said it was a "gut-wrenching" development, saying more jobs had been lost as a result of cheap overseas imports. "Recently Bradken Industries announced jobs were going offshore, and now after more than 50 years Ipswich will lose Australian Hardboards due to cheap imported products flooding the market," he said. "Australia must re-examine why we allow cheap overseas imports to destroy jobs." read more

The so called Australian government is ALLOWING which foreign country to import their dirt cheap harboard products into Australia? If we say China, will Julia Gillard label us "protectionist" for saying so? Anyone that's been reading here for a while knows we don't give a flying rabbi about what Fabian Gillard thinks anyway.

[Queensland Rail] QR National sale a success says Treausurer Andrew Fraser

(CourieMail) THE sale of Queensland's rail business, QR National Ltd, has been a success and history will remember it as the right decision, Treasurer Andrew Fraser says. The freight haulage company made a positive debut on the Australian Securities Exchange on Monday, trading at $2.65 at 14:30 (AEDT), above the $2.55 IPO price per share for institutional investors and $2.45 price for retail investors. read more

A "success" for whom — the Queensland people or global banksters and the monopoly art of privatisation? The Queensland tax payers already paid off and owned QR, yet now they are being asked to buy shares in something they already own?
