Make Australia Great Again
That is a fact shanehardy. Can you name one other western country that has farmed out its immigration programs to the very people who would easily take advantage of it - and do. I have heard several nationals from one of those countries myself - saying they could bribe themselves in. And on a similar subject. There will be many thousands of Chinese 'tourists' and 'relatives' and 'students' who will try their best to stay here forever - and they are processing now. AKA Corona virus (Wuhan War Virus) They smell weakness, as they should. We are weak. Worse than weak. They will be using CHINESE/'Australian' owned agencies to try and find a sniffling federal Bob Hawke to give them all permanent residence. I am hearing those noises already, and they will reach crescendo as they do find federal weakness.
"Abolish stamp duty - impose a proper land tax instead
Sometimes it’s possible to sense when a good idea’s time has come - when several strands in the national conversation weave together to form an obvious pointer on where to from here.
I sense one now around tax reform. "Jessica Irving.
The federal government needs to think of the next Snowy Mountains Project. We will have about 300,000 Chinese thinking they have an entitlement to stay here - due to the illness back home. There are already some making their applications. And every new student/old student returning/perhaps tourists as well. They will feel a sense of 'belonging' to Australia - LOL. And hope for crocodile tears from ScoMo....and a helpful wink.
I doubt this group of LNP/ALP butt-lickers in Canberra can say no to them - and then do proper bows before their ruler of Australia - Xi. So I suggest with all this man and woman power blowing in. We need coolies digging wide and deep trenches from NT and Kimberley WA to southern and even central Australia. Make the desert green. Make the already owned Chinese farmland bountiful. I think it is the only realistic approach - and Xi would approve of that. And smile, in private. Maybe laugh too.
better the Chinese already here than the next bunch of random athletes that just want to overstay ( like they did in the Sydney Olympics )
the immigration system and international student system is completely broken ( and corrupted )
we may as well remove all the major parties and start the policies from a blank sheet of paper and THEN decide who we will invite in ( which won't be an awesome choice as the best and brightest are smart enough to go elsewhere )
I would advise we start fresh here, same for the US. I keep hearing rumours that Gabbard will go supernova with a new third party. And Yang may be her VP....I would endorse, and help finance it.
Democracy has been so corrupted almost in every country it has been practised in for the last couple decades. The people are revolting against these shams. Germany is one example. Scandinavia, thank Muslim immigration for turning their countries into sewers, are another shifting right. Britain, cautious peek at the right and what they can do. The US, I like a mix of left for citizens, and right for everyone else. Much the same for Australia. And like the US, the best defence is an overwhelming offence. That means nukes and delivery systems for Australia. Is that too much to ask? Maybe we can couch it in protecting Chinese farmland - for our turncoat federal politicians.
Good entertainment, but what the Australian Get Up mouthpiece forgot to mention (she goes on about West Papua and Puerto Rico afterwards - professional shit-stirrer)) - Great Britain was also plotting to grab Hawaii - and would have. Yes, a lot of native Hawaiians have a grudge - mostly fat and dropped out school and wonder why they never succeeded, aided by leftist younger ones brainwashed by people like her....LOL. Most other Hawaiians are happy to accept the status quo , and some have prospered. You should go visit. I recommend the Big Island. Kauai is nice too. Obama is African. He is no Hawaiian.
the same group have ads for Timor , West Papua , and some other injustices
but when the law of the land doesn't work ( for the citizen or victim )
the certificate says Hawaii , whether it is genuine or not is a different question if the mother was a US diplomat the question is mute as she is technically US 'soil ' wherever she is , making BO a US citizen by default , but if so why a fake birth certificate ???
( similar to being born on a US ship )
The mother however, was not a diplomat. She was a uni student used by Obama Sr. That said, I do presume Obama was born in Hawaii. But that it is about the extent of his ohana. He left the islands as a toddler to Indonesia. Quite a history, Obama and his parents, one worth reading
On the heels of the #sportsrorts and our investigation into the Coalition Government’s media and regional growth fund rorts, we bring you Pork ‘n ‘Ride. Jommy Tee uncovers the latest dodgy vote-winner from the 2019 federal election — the $149 million Commuter Car Park Fund.
At Senate estimates last night, ANAO executive director Brian Boyd came out swinging with a volley of unassailable rebuttals. No, Mr Morrison, the sports grants were not “all eligible”. Nearly half – 290 – were ineligible. But, as we now know, the sports rorts were just the bottom of the pork barrel. In the public’s interest, we have now investigated the Commuter Car Park Fund. We at Michael West Media have dubbed it the “Pork ’n’ Ride” program..
we need a new political party ( or Albo will have an armchair ride )
But banks already have a legal obligation to advise the tax office of all cash transactions over ten k a law which has been in place for decades , IMO Slo Moron and his colleagues in Canberra have been smoking to many legal bongs before going to parliament .
Nearly 50,000 people who have had their claims for asylum rejected after arriving by plane are still in Australia awaiting deportation, raising questions over the efficiency of our border controls. A government backlog is being blamed for the slow progress in tackling the problem, with Labor warning that people smugglers are using the system to exploit illegal workers.
The number of people who have had their claims rejected after arriving by air increased to 46,391 at the end of January, according to government figures that show almost all of them remain in the country. The long appeals process also means 37,913 of the “airplane people” are still waiting for their refugee status to be determined, an increase of more than 1000 over the past month.
Fewer than two dozen were deported last month after failing to gain protection visas from the Department of Home Affairs and then losing their appeals in the courts, suggesting the backlog continues to grow. While the government insisted the system was working, Labor home affairs spokeswoman Kristina Keneally called for faster action to prevent illegal workers entering the country as tourists and staying when their claims were rejected.
much better to arrive as athletes and just never go back
bring on the 2032 Olympics ... LOL
Australian National Debit Interest per Year= A$19,035,874,355 straight to the banks
debit / citizen = A$ 24,169 , and as % of GDP= 48.39 % of GDP A$1,205,377,000,000
This is a world wide phenomenon in broke Democratic Countries, perpetual taxation of the future generations without representation., It matters mot what political party is in power they are all complicit with the bankers.
Government borrowing has to stop. Constitutional Reform is necessary along with the banning of Career Politicians who are only interested in their own immediate interests,
Revolutionary forces are stirring worldwide against this misallocation of the taxpayers incomes from eternal Government borrowing to pay the banks. These funds should be used for the people , not the freeloaders pulling the strings of this current puppet show.
Socialist model......destroy modern Democratic countries by tying a yoke of perpetual debt to be controlled by 1 central system.....let's call it the .UN......elevate 2nd world countries to be in equilibrium with 1st world countries by bringing them down under the guise of environmental action reducing emissions stifling economic progress. The new world order is here imo.......
Caulfield Grammar may revive plans to name its new $25 million aquatic centre after Olympic champion Mack Horton, following a fierce backlash to revelations it quietly shelved the idea for fear of offending Beijing.
The school’s move to disassociate its pool from Horton after he publicly snubbed his Chinese rival Sun Yang at last year's world championships was condemned as "kowtowing" to China and prompted threats by some parents to pull their children out of school.
"Will Beijing determine the kind of words and language that are usable at Caulfield Grammar?" asked Clive Hamilton, an author and academic who has examined China’s reach into Australian institutions. "It’s completely beyond the pale. Mack Horton’s courage in calling out a drug cheat contrasts with Caulfield Grammar cowardice in kowtowing to a foreign power."
Federal MP Tim Wilson, whose electorate of Goldstein lies just south of the school’s main campus, wrote to Caulfield Grammar on Monday calling on the school to overturn the decision, which he said sent a "truly disturbing message".
illio the LNP are still selling off everything they can , Australians don't own the ground under our feet queenie and her inbred family on the other side of the world owns more of Australia than every Australian combined does . The LNP conservatives have held power for 16 of the last 20 years and they are to blame 100% for the economic and social train wreck that their incompetence ass licking and greed has caused .
