     Gas companies weigh a heavy influence over Australia’s political leadership. As the horror show over high gas prices unfolds, Big Gas Con whistleblower and analyst, Simone Marsh, reports on National Party donations, the gas lobby, the “revolving doors” between industry and politics, and Deputy Prime Minister Barnaby Joyce and his land parcel at Narrabri where Santos is planning to drill. This is the first of a two-part series.

Letter-to-the-Editor - Part Time Power

Solar power only works while the sun shines – it is part-time power.Wind power only works when suitable winds blows – also part-time power.Batteries only work when charged – part-time power again.Hydro fails in droughts – more part-time power.And using full-time power like gas to fill the inevitable supply gaps from part-time power forces backup gas to operate like part-time power.Moreover, on sunny windy days, wind and solar generators spew out electricity at little extra cost. These erratic surges of part-time power drive electricity prices so low that even low-cost full-time producers like coal cannot operate profitably at those times. They are throttled back and forced to operate as yet another part-time power plant.

     24/7 electricity users such as hospitals, trains, factories, refineries, fuel and water pumps, cash registers, infrastructure and mines cannot operate on part-time electricity.

     Moreover, every part-time power producer (using sun, wind, batteries, hydro, gas or coal) consumes money full-time for operations, standby, maintenance and replacement. Each also has to fund its own specialised generators, transmission lines, access roads and workforce. Electricity becomes both unreliable and expensive, and consumers suffer.

China’s Pivot to World Markets, Washington’s Pivot to World Wars… And the Debacle of the Latin American Left By Prof. James Petras, Global Research, October 15, 2017

     China and the United States are moving in polar opposite directions: Beijing is rapidly becoming the center of overseas investments in high tech industries, including robotics, nuclear energy and advanced machinery with collaboration from centers of technological excellence, like Germany.

     In contrast, Washington is pursuing a predatory military pivot to the least productive regions with collaboration from its most barbaric allies, like Saudi Arabia.

WELL DONE AND WELL SAID TIM BALL!

Collapse of Global Warming Deception Triggers Variety of Bailouts and RevisionismWatts Up With That?Guest Blogger /  October 15, 2017Guest opinion: Dr. Tim Ball

     We will see an increasing number of people changing their positions on global warming as the global warming ship sinks. It will take various forms including; articles appearing that subtly shift previously held positions; reevaluation of data; or finding new evidence that allows a change and perhaps worst of all those who say they knew the science was wrong all along but did not consider it important to speak out; dredging up a sentence or two from their writings that they claim showed they knew.  The level of inventiveness will astonish as rats desert the sinking ship.

Nenshi can’t hide behind outsider status; Calgary mayor now represents establishment

National Post (2017-10-13) Canada Calgary Mayor Naheed Nenshi came to power as a reformer, but has done very little achieving, writes Jen Gerson:

Lauded abroad and beloved across the country, Calgary’s mayor Naheed Nenshi is facing the unthinkable: he may be about to lose an election. At first Calgary’s Oct. 16 municipal election promised to be a predictable affair, with the guy once proclaimed Canada’s most popular mayor facing off against an unpromising slate of low-profile challengers. Yet several Mainstreet Research poll have shown mayoral contender Bill Smith with a double-digit lead. And while some have questioned the polls’ methodology, there is evidence to suggest that this race is far tighter than anyone anticipated, least of all Nenshi.

Same-sex ‘marriage’ is causing a schism among Catholics in Australia

     Many Australians, including Bishops, do not appear to be aware that while Christians are being bullied and punished now for opposing SSM, it will be immeasurably worse if this legislation is passed. This is our last opportunity to save our freedom of religion! The heterosexual nature of marriage is not only a religious concept, but has been accepted for millennia in all cultures, secular and religious alike. It is simply a matter of biology and human reason.

     Many homosexuals oppose the “gay lobby” and support the rights of children to know and be loved by their own natural parents: https://www.lifesitenews.com/news/homosexual-activists-aim-to-destroy-the-family-impose-totalitarianism-gay-p     The silence and timid platitudes apparent in the Church is a matter of grave concern for Australian Catholics, and Christians generally.

A CANDIDATE FOR THE AMERICAN SENATE MAKES APPEAL FOR HELP

Wallace,      Times were tough when I was a kid. I was in elementary school when my dad lost his job. Then my parents got divorced. My mom struggled to take care of us kids on her own. For three years, we lived in an abandoned gas station without running water or electricity. Sometimes we didn’t have enough food to eat, but we got by thanks to help from family, church, and even the government.

     Those were tough times, but I knew it could be different. I never thought being homeless was going to stop me from being who I wanted to be. My parents taught me that if you work really hard, you can make it. I worked really hard, but I still needed a little help. When I went off to college, I knew I wanted to help other people get their shot at the American dream, because that dream came true for me.

CANADA: REGIONAL and/or NATIONAL INSURRECTION Wallace M. Klinck

Dear Prof. Tombe,     Please note that the following post was made today to the Montreal Gazette:Why the time is ripe for a conservative Alberta premier to shake up Confederationhttp://montrealgazette.com/news/politics/why-the-time-is-ripe-for-a-conservative-alberta-premier-to-shake-up-confederation/wcm/1e1d34ec-c614-4451-8eca-ea4b351ab919

     “Equalization payments are a mechanism whereby the increasingly inadequate national financial income is shared sufficiently to provide the financial powers adequate assurance that they will not become the target of regional and/or national insurrection. Social welfare financed by taxation falls into this category. It removes pressure from an essentially corrupt, exploitative and dysfunctional financial system by ensuring that the relatively few crumbs which are allowed society are sufficiently spread to prevent outright rampant deprivation and starvation with ensuing open rebellion. State encouraged ‘charity’ (voluntary ‘taxation’) serves a similar function.

WALLACE KLINCK AND SKY NEWS REPORT

Universal basic income may counter automationPublished: 3:23 pm, Sunday, 24 September 2017http://www.skynews.com.au/tech/2017/09/24/universal-basic-income-may-counter-automation.html     Losing your job to a robot might not necessarily be all doom and gloom if governments revolutionise the way we can earn a crust.That’s the hope of social policy academic Professor Greg Marston, who wants Australia to join other nations in debating the merits of introducing a universal basic income to help with an expected surge in unemployment that the rise of robots may bring.

     The University of Queensland academic and other proponents of the UBI, including Facebook founder Mark Zuckerberg and Tesla’s Elon Musk, argue governments need policies that provide an economic floor for people who lose their jobs or are forced to work fewer hours as a result of greater automation.Governments would pay all adults a basic salary of about $20,000 to cover their basic bills, but there would be no requirement to work.

     Whether it is gay marriage, trangenderism, health care, or the these appalling national anthem protests, phase one of the left’s fascist propaganda campaign always begins in this way… Hey, just let us do our thing. We are not bothering you. No one is hurting you. We are just expressing ourselves. What do you care?

Major Bank to Governments: Go on, Give us your Carbon Tax Money… Eric Worrall


     Banks have become remarkably coy about demanding carbon tax cash, in return for support for climate “investment”, but at least one major bank wanted to make sure readers got the hint.

     Leaving aside that the energy debate in Australia is almost entirely a political one, there is another front, beyond politics and the economics of risk, for would-be financiers.    Global regulators of and investors in the financial services sector, the first port of call for funding or organising the funding of energy generation and distribution, have very clear views on the carbon economy.
