Politicians again show “Real Genius”

Back in the chaotic dying days of the Whitlam-Cairns-Connor government, Canberra was buzzing with Rex Connor’s grand plans for a national energy grid and gas pipelines linking the NW Shelf to the capital cities, all to be funded by massive foreign loans arranged by a mysterious Pakistani named Khemlani. Malcolm Fraser staged a parliamentary revolt. The economy slumped.

A British observer at that time was asked who was the greater Prime Minister - Harold Wilson or Gough Whitlam. He replied:

“Any fool can bugger up Britain but it takes real genius to bugger up Australia.”

Australian politicians are again showing real genius.

Now, we have incredible tri-partisan plans to cover the continent with a spider-web of transmission lines connecting wind/solar “farms” sending piddling amounts of intermittent power to distant consumers and to expensive battery and hydro backups - all funded by electricity consumers, tax-assisted speculators and foreign debt.

We are the world’s biggest coal exporter but have not built a big coal-fired power station for 11 years. We have massive deposits of uranium but 100% of this energy is either exported, or sterilised by the Giant Rainbow Serpent, or blocked by the Green-anti’s.

Australia suffers recurrent droughts but has not built a major water supply dam for about 40 years, and the average age of our hydro-electric plants is 48 years. And when the floods do come, desperate farmers watch as years of rain water rush past to irrigate distant oceans.

Once, Australia was a world leader in exploration and drilling – it is now a world leader in legalism, red tape and environmental obstructionism.

Once, Canberra and the States encouraged oil and gas exploration with geological mapping and research - now they restrict land and sea access and limit exports.

Once, Australia was a world leader in refining metals and petroleum - now our expensive unreliable electricity and green tape are driving these industries and their jobs overseas.

Once, Australia’s CSIRO was respected for research that supported industry and for doing useful things like controlling rabbits and prickly pear and developing better crops and pastures. Now CSIRO panders to global warming hysteria and promotes the fairy story that carbon taxes and emissions targets can change the world’s climate.

Once, young Australians excelled in maths, science and engineering. Now, they are brain-washed in gender studies, green energy non-science and environmental activism.

Once, the opening of a railway or the discovery of oil, coal, nickel or uranium made headlines. Today’s Aussies harass explorers and developers, and queue at the release of the latest IPad.

As Australia’s first people discovered, if today’s Australians lack the will or the knowledge to use our great natural resources, more energetic people will take them from us.

ejada, I believe he is still a sell out, time will tell.
Remember I said most people in the world are living in an elite created illusion. I wasn't just talking about evolution and fake space.
Check this video out if you want a dose of reality. and can spare 40 minutes.
This is all to do with the financial system world wide and this person doesn't know how it works nobody does. No conspiracy here just cold hard facts.
this is part 1
What he says confirmed many things I have looked at over the years.

Germany, France, Canada, NZ and UK lead the race in assisting with the destruction of western style culture. I agree that under Turnbull we were headed in the same direction. Here is hoping that Scott Morrison is cut from better cloth. We desperately need a strong ethical leader who stands up for our country and culture.

Ejada, yes its a pity it can never happen as he says because of so called regions like Islam and sell out politicians such as we have here.

If Lennon's "World as One" is the Islam model that we are headed toward then it will truly be Hell on Earth.

I love the sound of Lennon's "Imagine" but the lyrics suggest was a promo for one world governance, which I don't support.
John Lennon, Plastic Ono Ban
Imagine there's no heaven
It's easy if you try
No hell below us
Above us only sky
Imagine all the people living for today
Imagine there's no countries
It isn't hard to do
Nothing to kill or die for
And no religion too
Imagine all the people living life in peace, you
You may say I'm a dreamer
But I'm not the only one
I hope some day you'll join us
And the world will be as one
Imagine no possessions
I wonder if you can
No need for greed or hunger
A brotherhood of man
Imagine all the people sharing all the world, you
You may say I'm a dreamer
But I'm not the only one
I hope some day you'll join us
And the world will be as one

As a "country" child I would look at the Milky-Way in awe of its splendor and wounder what mysterious places were light years away from us - something that time has taught me we will never know.

ejada, yes I wonder about that and many other things, I honestly do not know what is in the sky and I have never claimed to. I guess after seeing so much fakery from NASA It has really changed the way I think.

One question M.E., Has your God created mirror images of Earth throughout the cosmos or is Earth it. Or perhaps you also don't believe there is a cosmos. Don't you wonder just what is out there when you look up at the Milky-Way on a clear night far away from the dimming effects of all artificial light and see the splendour of the occasional shooting star? I know I do.

ejada, I know what I believe and I know why believe it. God or the creator made man in his image. We are not a half baked apes that some how evolved in to humans. From a blade of grass to an elephant or a blue whale all came from a big bag eh? Everything is just one big cosmic accident?
Sorry it does not compute and it never will.

And so I will leave you with the genetic conundrum posed by the mammilian Rhesus factor passed down from our shared ancestors, and to speculate how humans, chimpanzees, and bonobos share 99% of their DNA but have evolved into different species over the eons. Genes are opening Pandora's box on who is related to who - or what, for that matter. I suppose you could consider the basic "stuff" we are made of to be like a common cake batter that has then been divvied up into many separate batches to create lots of different exotic species.

History tells us that the sequence of eclipses were well understood a long time ago?
Billy what does this actually tell us?

ejada , It means that the way my brain now works .. and I can think for myself and that the earth and all its contents can not possibly come from a big bang. This is not a snap decision I have come to after coming across the flat earth theory either.
I have always questioned things ever since I was a child and it never ever ever made sense to me that we came from monkey's
I have tried to explain one of the reasons the theory of evolution is promoted as fact but it has obviously been disregarded and ignored if favour of so called proof. like I said you go right on believing what you do. When a belief is so powerful it makes you ignore what your own senses tell you it is more of a spell than a belief. I could list what your senses tell you that you ignore but it is pointless.

You don't accept any proof that the Earth is spherical because you have not seen it from space. That poses an interesting question. If you only believe what you can see, does that mean you have SEEN the Creator? Or does it mean that in some circumstances a leap of faith is OK?

thence the cover story for James Cook's mission to claim Australia around 6 generations before NASA
Your a funny bugger M-E

The shape, position and trajectories of the planets in our solar system were known and well documented long before NASA was established in 1958.

ejada by that if you mean have I been into space and actually checked out the moon, the sun and the stars, the answer is no. Just like you haven't.
Ejada, the proof of the pudding is in the eating. You are placing your trust in the hands of people like NASA.

So I take it you have never truly tested your own beliefs. Sad.

My point exactly. What are you seeing with a telescope? Honestly? You have no idea because you are just seeing a light in the sky. And that is the 100% truth of the matter.
Any time anyone wants to take me into space they can make me a true believer but until that happens I'm not accepting anyone's belief or NASA,s fake images of evidence of anything.
How far away does the moon and the sun look ? Using your own eyes? forget the telescope.

M-E, surely at some time in the past you have had the opportunity to look through a high powered telescope at the planets and stars? The first telescope was invented in 1608 by German-Dutch lensmaker Hans Lippershey, long before NASA was formed in 1958 and long before conspiracy theories abounded. Perhaps a trip out to Parks would be a good opportunity for you to gaze at the heavens in wonder and check out the planets of our solar system that are clearly spherical. YouTube videos are not as informative as a telescope and your own eyes.
