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.

WE WERE WRONG, CLIMATE SCIENTISTS CONCEDEBen Webster, The Times

     Catastrophic impacts of climate change can still be avoided, according to scientists who have admitted they were too pessimistic about the chances of limiting global warming.The world has warmed more slowly than had been predicted by computer models, which were “on the hot side” and overstated the impact of emissions on average temperature, research has found.

This is what we can expect in Australia if same-sex “marriage” is legalised

     The Trump administration just delivered a gut shot to the Homosexual Lobby and their radical anti-Christian Agenda.The U.S. Department of Justice (DOJ) sided with baker Jack Phillips in the U.S. Supreme Court case, Masterpiece Cakeshop v. Colorado Civil Rights Commission. You see, Jack Phillips, owner of Masterpiece Cakeshop, refused to bake a cake for a homosexual “wedding” and immediately faced legal action.

     Mr. Phillips was sentenced to attend “sensitivity training” re-education class, threatened with fines and was forced to stop baking wedding cakes.Unfortunately, cases like this are becoming a trend.

Qld LNP/ALP joined forces to stop farmers from having guns by cairnsnews

     THE LNP and the ALP have once again teamed up to defeat a common sense measure put forward by the Katter’s Australia Party; this time in relation to primary producers who need to use handguns for their work. The Motion, which called for the parliament to support the rights of Primary Producers to own handguns, was voted down by the Government and LNP.

“The Government has continued its attack on regional Queensland and the LNP has supported them. These city based politicians really have no understanding of what life is like west of Ipswich”, Mount Isa MP Robbie Katter said.

Taxpayers give $300m to Saudi billionaire for solar plant that makes 2% of old dying coal plant’s power: From Jo Nova’s website:

http://joannenova.com.au/2017/09/taxpayers-give-300m-to-saudi-billionaire-for-solar-plant-that-makes-2-of-old-dying-coal-plants-power/     It will only take 50 plants like this, and $15 billion spare dollars, to replace the Liddell coal station (8,000GWh), now slated for closure in 2022.$300m handout to Saudi tycoon for solar farm: http://www.theaustralian.com.au/national-affairs/saudi-solar-tycoons-300m-handout/news-story/e963968ea2e23b284036debd3ee8b0d7

     Australians are set to pay $300 million in subsidies to an outback solar farm owned by a Saudi Arabian billionaire in a new test of the federal government’s looming energy reforms, escalating a dispute over whether to cut the handouts to keep coal-fired power stations alive.AGL’s controversial Liddell coal power station in the NSW Hunter Valley generates 50 times as much electricity as the Moree solar farm in the state’s north, which stands to gain big subsidies from households from higher electricity bills until 2030…But we need more chinese-built glass panels that make green weather-controlling electrons.Lucky solar power is so competitive. Look at the money roll…

What’s changed in Britain since same-sex marriage? - David Sergeant

https://www.spectator.com.au/2017/09/whats-changed-in-britain-since-same-sex-marriage/     Four years ago, amid much uncertainty, 400 British members of parliament voted to redefine marriage in the United Kingdom.  Then prime minister David Cameron announced that, despite having made no mention of the issue in his party’s pre-election manifesto, it would be MP’s who decided the fate of marriage.  Now, it’s Australia’s turn to choose. There’s one key difference. Unlike in Britain, it will be the people who decide.

     Everyone agrees, whether they admit it or not. This is a decision of enormous significance.  Therefore, it seems sensible to analyse the consequences of the potential change, within nations in which redefinition has previously been carried out.

Same Sex Marriage debate - reply from Wallace Klinck

http://www.abc.net.au/news/programs/national-press-club/2017-09-13/national-press-club:-same-sex-marriage/8941880

Hello Lou,    Many thanks—this link brings up and plays the Press Club event immediately and I am grateful for the opportunity to view the discussion.  I think that Lyle Shelton and Karina Okotel conducted themselves with dignity and respectfully presented, with honesty, a number of entirely valid comments.  Of course, in final analysis no popular plebiscite, referendum or election will or can establish the rightness or wrongness of homosexuality, per se, in terms of Natural or Divine Law because that is something inherent in the laws of the Universe, which man did not create.

Cory Bernardi - Common Sense Lives Here

       It's been a chaotic couple of days in the Senate and there's no sign of that changing this week!The usual argy-bargy over procedure and process continues but it is the legislative agenda that is worthy of comment.

     Specifically there are two bills that have failed the common sense test. The first of these is about 'protections' to make hurt feelings an offence during the debate on redefining marriage. This was rushed into the senate this morning and within hours passed with little critical examination - but with plenty of emotional and self-serving stories over how nasty the debate has been.Unlike most, I chose to question the government over some contents of the bill and frankly wasn’t satisfied with the answers.Firstly, it overturns the people's right to access the legal system by requiring their complaint to be first approved by the Attorney-General, who coincidentally is a cheerleader for the rainbow brigade.

Welcome to 1984: Big Brother Google Now Watching Your Every Political Move By Robert Bridge

     RT News, September 12, 2017  https://www.rt.com/op-edge/402588-google-eric-schmidt-republicans/

     Google has taken the unprecedented step of burying material, mostly from websites on the political right, that it has deemed to be inappropriate. The problem, however, is that the world’s largest search engine is a left-leaning company with an axe to grind.Let’s face it, deep down in our heart of hearts we knew the honeymoon wouldn’t last forever. Our willingness to place eternal faith in an earth-straddling company that oversees the largest collection of information ever assembled was doomed to end in a bitter divorce from the start. After all, each corporation, just like humans, has their own political proclivities, and Google is certainly no exception. But we aren’t talking about your average car company here.

“Dissident Dispatches” by Andrew Fraser


BOOK REVIEW:  The Occidental Observer: “Dissident Dispatches” by Andrew Fraser:  London: Arktos, 2017

     “Andrew Fraser was for most of his career a professor of law at Macquarie University in Sydney. He was catapulted to prominence in July, 2005, by a letter to a local newspaper warning against the importation of Sudanese refugees into Australia: “Experience everywhere in the world shows us that an expanding black population is a sure-fire recipe for increases in crime, violence and other social problems.” The controversy surrounding the letter resulted in his departure from Macquarie.

Australian Bureau of Meteorology Mucks-up by Dr Jennifer Marohasy Researcher & Writer

Keeping You in the Loop     There is evidence to suggest that the last 20 years of temperature readings taken by the Australian Bureau of Meteorology, from hundreds of automatic weather stations spread across Australia, may be invalid. Why?  Because they have not been recorded consistent with calibration.

     Somewhat desperate to prove me wrong, late yesterday the Bureau issued a ‘Fast Facts’ that really just confirms the institution has mucked-up.   You can read my line-by-line response to this document here: http://jennifermarohasy.com/2017/09/bureau-management-rewrites-rules/

Why Capitalism Creates Pointless Jobs By David Graeber


     It’s as if someone were out there making up pointless jobs just for the sake of keeping us all working.

     In the year 1930, John Maynard Keynes predicted that technology would have advanced sufficiently by century’s end that countries like Great Britain or the United States would achieve a 15-hour work week. There’s every reason to believe he was right. In technological terms, we are quite capable of this. And yet it didn’t happen. Instead, technology has been marshaled, if anything, to figure out ways to make us all work more. In order to achieve this, jobs have had to be created that are, effectively, pointless.

DEBT: The First 5,000 Years by David Graeber


     While the “national debt” has been the concern du jour of many economists, commentators and politicians, little attention is ever paid to the historical significance of debt.

     For thousands of years, the struggle between rich and poor has largely taken the form of conflicts between creditors and debtors—of arguments about the rights and wrongs of interest payments, debt peonage, amnesty, repossession, restitution, the sequestering of sheep, the seizing of vineyards, and the selling of debtors’ children into slavery.
