They paid the ultimate price for waging war against the satanic Crown of England.

Joseph Tocsano Anarchist Age Weekly Review 20th January 2010



The intense disquiet felt by an increasing number of Australians about celebrating Australia's national day on the 26th January – the day a colonisation process began at Botany Bay in 1788 which led to the brutal and violent dispossession of people who had inhabited this continent for over 40,000 years has all but been ignored by successive governments and the fourth estate.


The time has come for both indigenous and non indigenous Australians who find the idea of celebrating this country's national day on such an inappropriate day to set aside a day to commemorate the Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander freedom fighters who paid the ultimate price to protect their families, their culture and their land from an onslaught by a people who were willing to use the most brutal and inhumane practices to eradicate indigenous Australians so they could steal their lands for their own personal gains.


For far too long Australians have written and re-written Australian history to justify their refusal to confront the past and enter into meaningful negotiations with the descendants of the survivors of this invasion. In 2006 and 2007 the Melbourne based Anarchist Media Institute organised a commemoration to mark the judicial murder of Tunnerminnerwait and Maulboyheenner, two indigenous freedom fighters from Tasmania who, on the 20th January 1842, were the first people publicly executed in Melbourne.


They paid the ultimate price for waging war against the Crown.


In 2008, realising the public execution of Tunnerminnerwait and Maulboyheenner was an event that was pivotal in Australian history, the Tunnerminnerwait and Maulboyheenner Commemoration Committee was created to organise a public commemoration on the 20th January since 2008. Three years later all the attempts of the Commemoration Committee to highlight the unfinished business that still exists between indigenous and non indigenous Australians and their efforts to establish a significant public monument on the spot the men were executed on that fateful day on the 20th January 1842, have been largely ignored. The Melbourne City Council has put the issue on the back burner, the Governor General, Quentin Bryce and the Prime Minister, Julia Gillard send their apologies when asked to speak.


Reconciliation between indigenous and non indigenous Australians cannot occur until the past is publicly acknowledged. Australians unwillingness or inability to grasp the idea that celebrating this county's national day on the day the colonisation process began is both offensive and inappropriate demands a national response from those indigenous and non indigenous Australians who believe reconciliation is much more than a Prime Ministerial apology on behalf of the government, not the Australian people.

The Melbourne based Tunnerminnerwait and Maulboyheenner Commemoration Committee calls on all those Australians who are interested in reconciliation to mark the 20th January as Indigenous Freedom Fighters Commemoration Day. Six days before the traditional “Australia Day” celebrations it provides an opportunity for all Australians who want reconciliation to use the past to understand the present and change the future. We call on all those Australians who believe reconciliation is needed to lance this public carbuncle to follow our example. We call on other Australians to learn their local history, make contact with indigenous Australians and form groups across the country that on the 20th January 2012 – the 170th Anniversary of the execution of the indigenous freedom fighters Tunnerminnerwait and Maulboyheenner will be marked by public commemorations across the country that recognises the ultimate sacrifice made by so many Aboriginal and Torres Strait islanders resisting a colonisation process that attempted to eradicate them and continues to deny their resistance.

Reconciliation between indigenous and non indigenous Australians based on justice, not charity, will only begin to occur when Australians from all walks of life set up groups around the country who acknowledge the past. Acknowledging the 20th January as Indigenous Freedom Fighters Commemoration Day provides a mechanism to kick start a process that has been stillborn as a result of public apathy, government indifference and overt hostility from powerful sections of Australian society who continue to deny the past for their own personal gain.

The Myth of Defending the Homeland



For Australians the legend of the ANZAC (Australian New Zealand Army Corps) is part of our social framework, a reference for all things akin to Australia’s self-image or the idealised “Ozzie” character, to wit; The model Ozzie is a strapping broad-shouldered, sun-tanned young man with a square chin and the bearing of a maturity beyond his years; none the less he is a jaunty lad with a glint in his eye which suggests a cheeky larrikin of good-humour and pleasant temperament. He loves his mum and respects his dad; he is a good brother and a staunch mate to his friends and a loyal boyfriend to his partner and if you can find a young Ozzie that fits this description, I’ll marry him!


The ludicrous caricature described above is for many Australians the idyllic Alpha male archetype, why? Since the First World War or what I refer to as The Great Slaughter of 1914 to 1919; the framework within which Australian journalists are programmed to operate has manifested a meme regarding our financial, and materiel support for the British and subsequent Amerikan Empires and their Military exploits over the years, that leave little or no room for objective analysis. Recently, or since 9/11 the framework for perpetuating the Anzac stereotype has become even more rigidly enforced as a dominant narrative. This is not to suggest that much of the pro-war reportage of Australians at war is not enthusiastically pursued by many of our so-called professional Journalists and Reporters. The fact is, without willing and eager participants to rally to the summons of the succeeding Governments of Australia and thereafter present positively spun and downright propagandistic turpitude – Australia would not have the flower of its youth fighting and dying in some corner of a foreign field, as I write.

The sad and very poignant fact is that the soldiers that the “Anzac Day” anniversary celebrations are intended to remember, were, upon returning and certainly as evidenced in their vetted letters home, for the most ‘anti-war’ and certainly not jingoistic patriots; many joined political parties and associated groups for social reform, unilateral and bilateral ceasefires and many demanded a total end to Australia’s involvement in the war. None of these sentiments or opinions was espoused by the media then or now, in exceptional cases, you will now find criticism of ‘the War’ from an Australian perspective, these will invariably be academic chat-fests broadcast on Government sponsored minority mediums, if they are broadcast at all, or in the alternative media on the internet.


This article is not posted to undermine or disrespect the lives lost and shattered by the wars Australia has been sucked into. Their lives were precious and deserve the utmost respectful remembrance: Lest we Forget and continue with this insane folly of running-dog to empires.


Regardless of the shallow sentimentality and glossy heartlessness employed, to perpetuate the stereo-type of Bronzed Ozzies fighting bravely for King and Country. The fact remains that the basis of all this jingoistic clap trap is the relentless suggestion that our young men and women are fighting to defend their homeland: Well, here’s the thing, and I think this will go some way to dousing the patriotic nonsense that fuel this sacrificial pyre of jingoism.

Australia is not their Homeland.

Yes, many were born on this land, however; Australia was and is the natural property of the native aboriginals that “discovered” and populated this continent 40,000 years ago. The land was stolen from them at gunpoint – under the Westminster System of Common Law (Criminal Law) this act is referred to as a “Robbery under Arms”. Since Lieutenant Cook commanded HMB ‘Endeavour’, which was a Barkentine, or 'Bark' not a Ship, and yep, Cook was a Lieutenant when in the role of “OC” or ‘Officer Commanding’ HMB Endeavour at the time he and his crew came upon and charted the coastline of what was to become Australia. The excuse that was given which made it ‘legally’ accepted for the British Navy to claim this ‘landfall’ for HM was the term “Terra Nullius” which suggested that “the land is empty”.

Similarly and for exactly the same reason the yiddish khazarian gangsters from eastern Europe used the term “A land with no people for a people with no land” when they entered illegally and took by “an act of Robbery Under Arms” the homeland of the Palestinians.

The same tactic was used against the native inhabitants of the land now referred to as North America. And so, soldiers of the U.S.A are equally deluded when they suggest that their military aggression against foreign foes is in Defence of their Homeland.

It’s not their Homeland; its stolen property, the title of ownership for which should be returned immediately to the rightful owners and recognised as such across the globe, or at the very least a situation should be created whereby a more equitable representation of the indigenous communities is established and the profits from all and any revenues accrued on, by or from that land should be distributed as equal shares to the respective aboriginal (generic native) communities.


The consistent theme here with these acts of “Robbery Under Arms” is that all these new “Nations” are by definition illegitimate and the positions they hold that they are defending themselves is null and void, due to the illegitimacy of their preposterous status as the legal owners of those stolen lands.


Each of these ‘Nations’ is currently involved in murderous and illegal conflicts throughout the world. I put it to the people of these ‘Nations’ that they call upon their respective Governments to recall their offensive forces and attend to the business of resolving the illegal and immoral conflicts of ownership that currently obtain with their self-proclaimed nationhood statuses.

Bogus claims on Australian floods from Australia’s ABC TV and Gobal Warming shill Dr Richard Somerville

This ridiculous video story below from ABC news cites über alarmist Richard Somerville of Scripps in San Diego, and is backed up with this print story [excerpts follow]:


Posted on January 14, 2011 by Anthony Watts

Here’s what the print story headline said:



Quoting Somerville:


“Because the whole water cycle speeds up in a warming world, there’s more water in the atmosphere today than there was a few years ago on average, and you’re seeing a lot of that in the heavy rains and floods for example in Australia,” Sommervile [sic] said.

he adds:


“This is no longer something that’s theory or conjecture or something that comes out of computer models,” Sommerville [sic] said. “We’re observing the climate changing — it’s happening, it’s real, it’s a fact.”


Well perfessor, while a warmer atmosphere can hold more water vapor content, I call BS on your statement. The climate has always changed. The same argument is being used to hype increased hurricane threats, and as we’ve seen from Dr. Ryan Maue, the Accumulated Cyclone Energy (ACE) says the linkage just isn’t there.


The headline of course is sensational, they really didn’t put any thought or research into the Brisbane, QLD flooding, they simply drew a conclusion and found somebody to support it with a soundbite. I’ve seen plenty of examples of this style of crappy TV news journalism in my career. Professor Somerville apparently couldn’t be bothered to do a little historical research before claiming the floods in Queensland were connected to “global warming”, neither could ABC News.

What did ABC news and professor miss? This graph from the Australian Bureau of Meteorology (BoM) on Brisbane flooding history. When you add the 2010 flood levels to the graph (as Dr. Roger Pielke Jr. bothered to do, shown in red below) all of the sudden, the historical context for the flood being driven by global warming disappears:

And this is backed up from the BoM web page narrative.


Explain then perfesser, how the 1974 flood, which was worse, links to “global warming”. Or how about the biggest flood, in 1893? How does that figure with “global warming”, especially when it was cooler in 1974 and in 1893 there was no appreciable rise in CO2 globally?


Some people will say, “well that’s just Queensland”, so here is the Australian continent. The same questions apply:


The historical narrative for 1893 from BoM:

3/2/1893 Lower part of Brisbane submerged, and water still on the rise; the “Elamang” and the gunboat “Paluma’ were carried by the flood into the Botanical Gardens, and the “Natone” on to the Eagle Farm flats.


4/2/1893 Disastrous floods in the Brisbane River; 8 feet of water in Edward Street at the Courier building. Numbers of houses at Ipswich and Brisbane washed down the rivers. Seven men drowned through the flooding of the Eclipse Colliery at North Ipswich. Telegraphic and railway communication in the north and west interrupted.


5/2/1893 The lndooroopilly railway bridge washed away by the flood. Heaviest floods known in Brisbane and suburbs.


6/2/1893 The lower part of South Brisbane completely submerged. The flood rose 23’9″ above the mean spring tides and 10 feet above flood mark of 1890; north end of the Victoria Bridge destroyed.


7/2/1893 Flood waters subsiding. Sydney mail train flood bound at Goodna, unable to either proceed or return.

13/2/1893 Second flood for the year in the Brisbane River.


16/2/1893 More rain in the south east districts; another rise in the Brisbane; further floods predicted.

17/2/1893 A third flood occurred in the Brisbane River for the year.


18/2/1893 The ‘Elamang” floated off from the Botanical Gardens. Business at a standstill in Brisbane. Ipswich and other towns. Several deaths by drowning reported.


19/2/1893 The gunboat “Paluma” safely floated off the Gardens, and the “Natone” off Eagle Farm flats. Another span of the lndooroopilly railway bridge carried away. The third flood reached its maximum height at 12 noon, viz. 10 inches below the first flood.

In my opinion, professor Somerville is spouting nonsense about Australia.


The Australian rains are being driven by La Nina says NASA in this press release


“Although exacerbated by precipitation from a tropical cyclone, rainfalls of historic proportion in eastern Queensland, Australia have led to levels of flooding usually only seen once in a century,” said David Adamec, Oceanographer at NASA’s Goddard Space Flight Center, Greenbelt, Md. “The copious rainfall is a direct result of La Niña’s effect on the Pacific trade winds and has made tropical Australia particularly rainy this year.”

UPDATE: Here’s yet another expert with a similar opinion, from CNN, where they quote a Columbia (where NASA GISS is located) lead forecaster:


The catastrophic weather events taking place across the globe – from Brazil’s and Australia’s flooding to the Eastern United States’ heavy snowfall – have two likely explanations.

Tony Barnston, lead forecaster at Columbia University’s International Research Institute for Climate and Society, said two phenomena – La Niña and the North Atlantic Oscillation – are likely responsible for the patterns we’re seeing.


UPDATE2: T Gough in comments points out in this discussion on the Met Office website:


For the Australian state of Queensland, there is strong evidence to suggest that La Niña is the main reason for the ongoing widespread flooding. The current floods are also the worst since 1974 – which coincided with the strongest La Niña on record.

They offer this chart:

And this Q&A discussion which is a transcript of a video interview (PDF)









La Nina and severe weather around the world

Adam Scaife – Senior Climate Scientist

What is La Nina?


La Nina is part of a natural climate oscillation in the tropical Pacific. It oscillates between the warm El Nino phase, El Nino is Spanish for ‘the boy’, and the cold La Nina phase. So La Nina is like the cold little sister phase of this oscillation and it’s a purely natural event, occurs every few years as part of this natural oscillation.

Is the flooding in Australia linked to La Nina?


So during La Nina the rainfall that normally falls out over the Pacific shifts west over Indonesia and indeed northern and eastern parts of Australia. So the fact that there’s been lots of flooding in Queensland recently is very consistent with the occurrence of near record La Nina this year.

Is the flooding in Sri Lanka and Brazil linked to La Nina?

So La Nina affects weather patterns throughout the globe but of course the further away you are from the La Nina the more difficult it is to pinpoint the affects, it’s a bit like waving a long stick, the uncertainty grows the further away you are from the source. And so when we look at remoter regions, like Brazil or Sri Lanka, it’s more difficult to attribute the recent flooding events to La Nina. If we take the Brazil case, then when we look in historical records and in our climate models, then southern parts of Brazil are actually dry during La Nina so it would be difficult to attribute the recent flooding near Rio to the La Nina that is going on at the moment. If you go to Sri Lanka that is a little bit more complicated, a little bit less clear because it’s right on the edge of the wet influence from La Nina, but again historically it looks like La Nina tends to drive drier conditions in Sri Lanka so the previous biggest event, or the biggest on record in fact in 1974, Sri Lanka was actually dry.

Is La Nina linked to climate change?


La Nina, El Nino cycles have been going on for a very long time, they’re natural cycles, they’re part of a natural oscillation in the Pacific and indeed when we run our climate models into the future with increasing levels of greenhouse gases then there are no consistent changes in the El Nino, La Nina cycle.

Here’s the video:




While the Met Office may have trouble forecasting winter, they are right about this basic understandign of La Nina. It seem’s there’s a consensus forming that contradicts Somerville’s view of the world.

UPDATE3: My Oz friend Dr. Jennifer Marohasy has this discussion of Eastern Australian rainfall from 2008 and offers this graph, not the 1974 peak. When this graph is updated with the latest rainfall data, it may show a spike similar to 1974.


What the graph demonstrates is that heavy rainfall spikes have occurred in the past, and they are not exclusive to our present with m ore CO2. h/t to reader Crosspatch for this link.


UPDATE4: Crosspatch also points out that BoM now has the most recent rainfall totals online, here is the rainfall for QLD:




Weather history apparently can repeat itself, and the precedent was set before CO2 became a worry.

Weather Underground Forecasting All Time Record Cold for the Northern Hemisphere Tonight


“The coldest temperature ever recorded in the Northern Hemisphere is -90F.”


-92F is forecast for tonight.

Good article at the Guardian UK by Germaine Greer:


“Australian floods: Why were we so surprised?”


Meteorologists warned Australians six months ago to prepare for a soaking. And nobody did a thing …


…In Brisbane the benchmark was the flood of 1974; most Queenslanders are unaware that the worst flood in Brisbane’s history happened in 1893. Six months ago the meteorologists thought it was worthwhile to warn people to “get ready for a wet, late winter and a soaked spring and summer”. So what did the people do? Nothing.


….The phenomenon is anything but momentary; the not-so-exceptional rainfall will continue, probably until the end of March. Professor Neville Nicholls, president of the Australian Meteorological and Oceanographic Society, believes that “the Queensland floods are caused by what is one of the strongest (if not the strongest) La Niña events since our records began in the late 19th century”. He was asked if the intensification was a consequence of global warming, and declined to comment.


Other people have been rather too quick to claim the extreme weather as a direct consequence of global warming. (It will surprise many readers of the Guardian to learn that in Australia there is still a bad-tempered debate about whether global warming is happening or not.) …


http://www.guardian.co.uk/environment/2011/jan/15/australian-floods-queensland-germaine-greer

There are essentially 3 points contradicting this bogus “science”


1. If increased moisture is used to explain these floods, draughts should become less frequent/severe and not the opposite.


2. La Nina is on a global scale a cool weather event, which should become less frequent/severe in a warming world and not the opposite.


3. There have been worse floods in history all occurring in typically cold episodes of temperature history, the worst in the 18oos.




Status of the CLOUD experiment – November 2009


http://cdsweb.cern.ch/record/1221088



Just because people (worldwide) happen to live in areas subject to natural extremes doesn’t mean we have to reorganize our entire economies to chase after a microscopic margin of “safety”.


People die every day under perfectly mundane circumstances. That’s life. Not global warming.


“Because the whole water cycle speeds up in a warming world, there’s more water in the atmosphere today than there was a few years ago on average, and you’re seeing a lot of that in the heavy rains and floods for example in Australia,” Sommervile said.


Then it follows that, with more water in the atmosphere and on land, sea level must be falling. No? But that’s not what these snake-oil salesmen are pitching – along with the rest of the Global Warming tripe.


So, if the extra GHG heating, excluding water vapor, is 2.63W/m**2 according to NOAA.


Evaporation/Convection, which causes weather, removes about 100 W/m**2 from the earth’s surface.


If this GHG heating causes an increase in surface temperature, both radiation and evaporation/convection will increase. Surely the maximum increase in evaporation/convection is 2.63/100.


So how can the GHG heating increase convection by more than a couple of percent? This effect would always be too small to be statistically detectable, surely.


So, the GW Climate Gate “a global tax’ll fix it” IMF cheer squad are blaming GW for the Australian floods: Are they sure? 1/4 of 1 degree difference in global temperatures since 1980 makes that much difference that they can be that sure that this year's storms are affected by the change in temperature going on since 1750; but not last years', the previous years', nor any of the previous 29 years of weather were affected?


Let’s assume that we have Global Warming and more moisture in the sky due to the increased temperature. OK, come winter the cold causes more snow, more moisture = more snow; it all sounds reasonable, UNTIL you look at the science.


(1) The process of freezing water causes the water to release heat energy.


(2) According to the laws of thermodynamics, the energy does NOT just disappear.


(3) Air circulation will mix the air from the ground level to the cloud level and back again.


The explanation given could explain more snow, BUT it should be very mild cold temperatures. Sooner or later the heat will make its way to the ground. If it doesn’t, then we would have more snow, followed by more rain. However, we are seeing a very bitter cold. The facts don’t fit the theory.


Given that 10 years ago they told us that, “However, the warming is so far manifesting itself more in winters which are less cold than in much hotter summers. According to Dr David Viner, a senior research scientist at the climatic research unit (CRU) of the University of East Anglia, within a few years winter snowfall will become “a very rare and exciting event”. ”


http://www.independent.co.uk/environment/snowfalls-are-now-just-a-thing-of-the-past-724017.html



I’d say they are just making it all up as they go along.


The individuals who claimed that Queensland would not experience floods anymore due to AGW need to be listed in large bold print on the front page of the newspaper.


Anyone now saying that floods are due to AGW need to be likewise listed along with the notation that today’s floods is still less than the flooding that has appeared in the past.


What they attempt to do is take ANY current weather extreme and link it to AGW. If it is dry, it is AGW. If it is wet, it is AGW. If it is hot, it is AGW. If it is cold, it is AGW. What some newspaper there needs to do is contrast these conflicting claims on the front page in large, bold print.


The ABC’s story is a piece of warmist clap trap. You expect this from ABC that has bought the AGW con hook, line and sinker.


But please don’t compare 1893 with what has just happened. There are 2 significant dams in place today that weren’t present in 1893. If these dams were not present it is quite possible the 1893 flood level would have been exceeded for the current event although it’s hard to be certain.


Some areas in SE QLD saw flood levels 1-2m above the 1893 event bear this in mind when making comparisons. Several recording stations in the Lockyer Valley had their gauges destroyed so we will never know what the true river levels were at these places. Both events were very different in nature. The current event saw wide spread rainfalls up to 600mm whilst 1893 saw more concentrated rainfalls in the northern part of the catchment with one measuring station recording 2000mm+ in a 4 day period.


This link to Jennifer Marohasy, in Australia is very interesting. When this graph is updated, it may be close to the 1974 rainfall peak from that La Nina – Anthony


http://www.jennifermarohasy.com/blog/archives/Eastern%20Oz%20No%20Trend%20Line.jpg


Met Office has a report (14/1/11) on its website ‘Global flooding and La Nina’


http://www.metoffice.gov.uk/news/releases/archive/2011/La-Nina-impacts

They say “For the Australian state of Queensland, there is strong evidence to suggest that La Niña is the main reason for the ongoing widespread flooding. The current floods are also the worst since 1974 – which coincided with the strongest La Niña on record”.

I guess Australia had access to the real story as early as 2008:


http://jennifermarohasy.com/blog/2008/08/interpreting-eastern-australian-rainfall-data/



Brisbane is not the only part of eastern Australia affected by floods. The problem started as a cyclone developed in the Coral Sea, moved south and then inland. This left a trail of townships flooded down the Queensland coast.


Oz is the flattest continent, averaging only 300 m asl. The continental divide runs close to the eastern coastline and is generally less than 1000 m asl. As a result, major waterways starting in the ranges, run inland until they reach the Southern Ocean or Lake Eyre. The gradients on these rivers is thus very low, except near the headwaters and so there are no effective deep channels to guide rainwater in the manner of many northern hemisphere rivers. Instead large downpours in the headwaters of the major rivers readily spread across broad, ill-defined flood plains and readily cause chaos.


A similar pattern has developed in the Gascoyne region of WA and flash flooding is seriously affecting northern Victoria. Much of the Queensland water is about to flood western NSW.


It is like pouring water on a table. Too readily the flow takes ill-defined courses to the sea or lowest point.


Unfortunately many settlements are on or close to the “normal” water courses, and hence they are too readily prone to flooding, because there is little to contain extra waters in existing channels. Brisbane is one such settlement. Water from the eastern side of the Darling Downs escarpment was channeled onto the flood plains of the Brisbane River. Old hands learnt by experience and designed the “Queenslander” style of house on stilts that generally survives flooding. Unfortunately engineers warnings, particularly after the 1974 floods, were ignored by governments and planners and much of the damage witnessed in the past few days could be blamed on lax planning laws about rapid development and poor house design on flood-prone plains, ie. in much of western Brisbane.


AGW fruitcakes say the rising sea temperatures around Australia this past 30 years exacerbated the La Nina effect. Using the same logic warming oceans should moderate the cooling around Australia during an El Nino event and hence reduce drought severity. Yet we have been told AGW will increase drought frequency and severity; WTF?


For further consideration:


http://www.bom.gov.au/lam/climate/levelthree/c20thc/flood7.htm

The year 1973 was one of the wettest known over much of Australia, and in keeping with the strong La Niña event that prevailed, the 1973/74 northern wet season started early. By the end of 1973 large areas of the country were saturated. Then came January 1974, which featured probably the biggest continent-wide drenching since European settlement, inundating vast areas of the country.


New Year celebrations had barely finished when torrential rains on 4 January soaked northeast Victoria and parts of the Riverina, and flooded Albury. Meanwhile, far away in north Queensland, big floods on the 5th marooned cars and coaches across a broad area. The deluge then extended to northwest New South Wales on the 7th and 8th, causing flooding along the Namoi and Castlereagh rivers: railways and roads were cut, necessitating evacuations by helicopter.


Further heavy rain fell in NSW during the second week of January , and many rivers in the north of that State were flooded. On 11 January, creeks in Brisbane burst their banks, flooding roads and streets. Northern Victoria experienced a second burst of heavy rain on the 13th; this time, floodwaters swirled through the streets of Nhill and Dimboola. Rains also extended to the normally arid north of South Australia on the 17th, flooding opal mines at Coober Pedy.


As monsoonal rains poured down, the Gulf Country of Queensland, and extensive areas of the dry centre, was turned into vast inland seas, isolating pastoral stations and causing heavy cattle losses. About 500 people were evacuated from Normanton and Karumba, while 250 stranded passengers on the Townsville-Mt Isa railway were air-lifted to Mt Isa. Some 400-600mm of rain inundated the southern Northern Territory and southwest Queensland in January, more than twice the average ANNUAL total at some locations.


On top of all this came tropical cyclone “Wanda”, which moved ashore north of Brisbane on Thursday 24 January, producing relatively little wind damage, but sending down enormous quantities of rain over the Australia Day weekend. In Brisbane, intensifying rain throughout Friday dumped over 300mm within 24 hours. In three days (ended 9am 27th) the Queensland capital received 580mm, with even heavier falls over river catchments near the city (1,300mm in five days at Mt Glorious). Wanda flood: The first houses were washed away along Enoggera Creek early on the 26th. As rivers continued to rise, many more were lost. The Bremer River peaked at Ipswich on the Sunday, and the Brisbane River peaked early on Tuesday; both at their highest levels since the disastrous floods of 1893. Fourteen people were drowned, some trapped in offices by the rising waters.


By the end of January much of Australia – normally the “dry” continent – was experiencing the problems of too much water. Vast areas of the inland remained submerged for weeks – in some cases, for months. Crops were destroyed, and outbreaks of disease, such as Murray Valley encephalitis, took their toll.

“Again, how did this massive flood happen without the help of CO2 back then?”

That’s easy!


In the past such disasters were due to the weather … these days they are due to the climate!


Whenever, or wherever, engineers construct a major new processing plant or bridge, they are asked to ensure it will continue standing in a 50, 100, 200, or in some extreme cases a 500 year weather ‘event’.

Only the most stupid AGW fanatic would refuse to accept we have occasional extreme weather events in the past and will continue to do so in the future.


A classic case of: “Don’t confuse me with the facts, my mind is made up.”


Well, I think my work here is done – I feel that my mission to kick the AGW freaks squarely in the arse is accomplished – Anthropomorphic Global Warming is another Jew World Order scam: How anyone would buy a Global Taxation system will solve anything to do with the environment leaves me gob-smacked and drooling from my bottom lip...

Much like the junk-food chomping sheeple slouched in front of their Talmud-vision brain-washing machines.

Saudi princes are the high end buyers in the US child sex slave market: Updated

 

This little girl and thousands like her are tortured sex-slaves
because people that watch Fox programs are fucking stupid!
 The Newsletter the Saud family and their Washington retainers love to hate:


ARABIAN PENINSULA AND THE INTERNATIONAL SEX SLAVE TRADE.


The Arabian Peninsula inhabitants have long been involved in purchasing slaves. Up until recently, most of these slaves were purchased in Africa. With the advent of oil wealth the Saudi princes have been able to extend their slave purchases throughout the world. This has enabled the Saudi princes to become more selective and specialized in their tastes for slaves. The Saud family continue to be the prime purchasers on the international slave trade and are known as high end buyers.

The Saudi Arabian Government continues to refuse to sign the United Nations treaties on slavery or other human rights issues because they do not want to be subject to their provisions.

Sex slavery is funded by people that

They will not sign extradition treaties even with Washington. They constantly declare they are free of slavery but will not allow international scrutiny.

We will deal with the kidnapping of US male and female children by Saudi princes and their associates in this issue. We will substantiate the pattern of abuse using documented occurrence where the princes and their associates have been caught.

STATE DEPARTMENT SENSITIVITIES TOWARDS THE SAUDI ARABIAN INTERNATIONAL SLAVE TRADE:


It has been an open secret in Washington that the State Department has been extremely sensitive to criticism of its actions regarding Saudi Arabia and its princes. There has been an unusual amount of personnel turnover at the Saudi Arabian desk where officials showing the slightest tendency towards ethics and morality are either transferred or terminated to make an example to others.


Beaten by coward saudis that are bitter because
they have small penises
 Why the State Department sensitivity?

There are things going on in Saudi Arabia which are so embarrassing to Washington that if the United States citizenry knew, their worst fears about Washington would be corroborated. We will deal with one of these sensitivities in this issue, child abduction by Saudi princes. This is one of several issues we have been reluctant to publish because of the emotional ramifications to families of children who have been abducted around the world in general and the United States in particular. We had to balance what the Saudi princes involved in these abductions would do upon publication. 

saudi men abuse arab women because
saudi men are inadequate sex partners

In considering publishing this article against the potential benefits of making known their actions, we chose the latter. The humanitarian action would be for the Saudi Arabian Government to return the sex slaves to their US families so they could receive hospitalization and rehabilitation. We believe this will be considered impractical because of the numbers as well as the legal and political ramifications. we have seen time and time again US media reported scandals when slaves of Saudi princes and their associates brought into the United States try to escape.  
The State Department then intervenes on behalf of the Saudi princes with diplomatic or retroactive diplomatic immunity. We initially became aware of non-parental child abductions by Saudi princes when a US citizen enslaved and tortured by King Fahd's nephews was told by a guard in their palace prison the last person to inhabit his cell was a "US girl child whore slave". We soon found the extensive nature of the non-parental abductions of US children by Saudi princes and their procurers.


"Saudi" Arabia was created by the same back-stabbing cowards that sold-out the Palestinians to the evil yiddish scum from eastern europe! The murderers and child-molesters in this picture are typical of the cronies that perpetrated 9/11 for the yiddish occupiers of israhell and the thieves that profit from the rothschild international banking scam:

This room eerily looks like the room in Kuwait used by the Iraqis to torture Kuwaitis during the gulf war. This cell is in the Eastern province of Saudi Arabia within King Fahd's nephews' palace and is where the "US child whore slave" was held.
