The Green War on our Primary Industries

triggers the

Convoys of No Confidence

Please Pass this On.
This battle against a tax on the gas-of-life (carbon dioxide) is approaching a climax.



The Greens now control the Australian Parliaments – neither the ALP nor the Coalition can pass legislation without support from the Greens and their patsy independents.


For years now the Greens have waged war on our primary industries – mining, grazing, farming, forestry and fishing.


This war reached a climax recently with their unprincipled attacks on two industries - coal and cattle. Bob Brown wants to close all Australian coal mines and coal fired power stations and other greens want to stop all live cattle exports. That infamous economist, Ross Garnaut, seems to think we should eliminate our cattle and sheep and farm kangaroos instead. (Naturally the surplus cattle and sheep will all be euthanized humanely.)


Every war is triggered by one dramatic event and the overnight banning of live cattle exports from Australia to its near neighbour Indonesia was the trigger for action across Northern Australia. The bush is now like an agitated meat-ants' nest.


Thus the proposal by one NT truckie, Mick Pattel, to organise a Protest convoy to Canberra has escalated into 11 convoys from all parts of Australia.




Already the first convoy is heading south. For up-to-date details of all convoys see:

Carbon Tax Lies and Bribes



The Green/Gillard government's $4 million carbon tax manifesto was sent to every Australian household last week.


It is a litany of lies in a bucketful of bribes.


The document is so biased and deceptive that the government should conduct a referendum or an election before introducing a carbon tax.


If a referendum was held, the "No Carbon Tax" case would soon expose the lies in the current deceptive document."


The first lie is to claim that a tax on carbon dioxide will "cut pollution". It is blatant false advertising to use "pollution" to describe a rare colourless non-toxic natural gas which is generated in the lungs of all animals and feeds all plants by fertilising the oceans and the atmosphere.


It is another lie to claim that a carbon tax "will protect the economy". The reverse is true. It will reduce the asset values, share prices, profits, dividends and growth of our biggest companies, destroy jobs and waste community savings on piddling power schemes like wind and solar energy.


It is another lie to insinuate that a carbon tax will reduce "droughts, heat waves and bushfires". Where is the evidence?


Finally, it is electoral bribery to use carbon tax receipts to buy votes from pensioners, retirees, families, tax payers, carers, students and tenants. These bribes can never compensate for the job losses, reduction in retirement nest eggs, and increased living costs for everyone.


The carbon tax manifesto is a dishonest document full of lies, deceptions and electoral corruption.

Why you should oppose the Carbon Tax:


Al Gore generating Global Warming?


Texas governor Rick Perry is bidding for the Republication nomination for US President.


Perry calls global warming "all one contrived phony mess that is falling apart under its own weight."


Perry served as Al Gore's Texas campaign chairman in the 1988 presidential race, just before switching his party allegiance from Democrat to Republican, but conservatives don't have to worry that Perry holds any residual affection for the former veep.


"I've heard Al Gore talk about man-made global warming so much that I'm starting to think that his mouth is the leading source of all that supposedly deadly carbon dioxide," Perry said in 2007.






Nevertheless we do face:
