Could NSW State Labor Leader Luke Foley be considering going Federal? [Are NSW state issues are getting boring for him?] As reported in page two of the Australian newspaper [September 27th] by Primrose Riordan “Labor leader aligns with China on BRI”. NSW Opposition Leader Luke Foley has fully endorsed Red China’s global infrastructure fund and mimicked language used by Beijing officials in attacking Australia’s media for being driven by a Cold War mentality towards the Communist governed nation. Mr Foley and prominent NSW Labor MP Ernest Wong [tied to a prominent Chinese political donor] , hosted a media conference

Beware the Creeping Tiger

China’s state-controlled Yan­zhou Coal says the planned $US2.45 billion ($3.2B) purchase of Rio Tinto’s Hunter Valley coalmines by its Australian subsidiary, Yancoal, will give China a bigger say in coal price talks. Australia continues to sell off its abundant legacy of natural resources to the stealthy creep of the PRC and other nations. Soon we will no longer be masters of our own destiny but rather slaves to a dominant communist regime with global aspirations. Woe the day Australian governments began selling off Australia’s infrastructure and natural resources to foreign predators. Governments are selling your future to regimes that

In November 1975 an unsuccessful approach was made to Saddam Hussein’s Ba’ath Party in Iraq for a $US500,000 gift to help fund Labor’s 1975 election campaign. The co-instigators of the approach to the Iraqis were allegedly Opposition Leader Whitlam, prominent Victorian Socialist Left identity Bill Hartley and then ALP National Secretary from South Australia, David Combe. David Combe resigned as National Secretary in 1981 to start up his own lobbying business, and his timing was good as Bob Hawke won the March 1983 Election for Labor. Soon after the Hawke victory, David Combe was suspected by ASIO of being

Communist Cash is King! Yes cash is king and China has more of it than most and in the year 2016 had spent $72Billion in the Australian property market and their spending is increasing. This has to STOP! It’s ridiculous that our government is allowing offshore speculators to push our domestic housing market to extreme heights. Housing ownership is already largely out of reach for new market entrants. However, little has been said recently about those seeking to merely rent to put a roof over their head. Costs for rental properties around the nation have risen sharply to meet

Is Australia becoming the Peoples’ Republic’s sanctuary? Here we go again, Australia kowtowing to a foreign power, in this case China. As posted online on May the 5th, 2017, is just another example of how vulnerable Australia has become to being manipulated by foreign governments, multinational corporations and in fact by anyone with access to serious money. In scenes described as “extraordinary” and “disgusting”, a Chinese delegation forced the Australian government to evict Taiwanese visitors from a key international summit held in Perth last week. It begs us to ask the question, who governs Australia and who controls who?

Welcome to the Real World

Welcome all. After watching a 4 Corners program entitled “The Age of Consequences” I was somewhat alarmed at the lack of acknowledgement  and collaborative action by our astute politically correct politicians. Yes we are talking about climate change and the escalating effect it will have on global security, trade, migration and the security of Australia’s future. With most of Queensland drought declared and other parts of Australia suffering climatic changes affecting agriculture and livestock isn’t it possible that Australia is just as vulnerable as Africa with most of the continent consisting of uninhabitable arid land? The majority of the population

Protecting Australia’s Sovereignty

Grant Goldman Editorial for Wednesday 22 February 2017 The Chinese Government’s push for globalism and free trade is seen by some observers as being more of a strategy for even greater control and ownership over Australian assets and that of the Pacific Rim. The PRC now seeks to fill the USA’s vacuum & its place for the secretive and undemocratic TPP. The Rinehart model for foreign ownership is the best and most forward-thinking option for Australia. Gina Rinehart’s recent push into the Cattle industry has involved  her purchase of a substantial two thirds interest in the Kidman cattle empire comprising

Chinese Tactical Maneuvering

On August 13 2016 we wrote an article ‘Endgame’ outlining reported acquisitions by Chinese interests. The news report Jan 5 2017 ‘Communist China moves against Trump, asserts control over strategic ports’ details specific procurement by Chinese state controlled corporations masquerading as private entities. In Australia it appears that a blind man could have seen the surreptitious manoeuvring by Chinese entities throwing money at State and Federal governments to secure key infrastructure within the nation. No matter, MONEY talks, even at the expense of Australia’s future, unfortunately blind men never get elected to government. Australia is being manipulated by all

‘In time, this world will be China’s’

“In time, this world will be China’s” It could be the title for a Bond movie but it refers to a comment made by a brother of one of China’s richest men. The Ye Cheng family, Chinese billionaires behind the contentious  Landbridge Group acquisition of the Port of Darwin. Adding to this another world port has been purchased – read more. Should Australia be concerned about handing control of a major northern port to foreign interests – YES is our answer. Stop to look at how China is positioning itself globally. While the world is distracted by global conflict and

Aggressive Neighbors

An editorial which appeared in The Global Times last week and reported on by The Daily Mail should be a wake up call to all levels of Australian government that there is trouble smoldering and that Australia is a target of aggression not only from IS but also from its neighbors. Wake up Australia! The past few years have seen the world fall victim to criminal gangs using religion as an excuse for their atrocities, countries invaded, millions of peoples displaced by their governments and many other acts of violence and aggression globally. This level of violence combined with
