Bob Katter's First Letter: The Last Six Months Have Been the Worst Period in Australian History

Tired of the election debate already? Why not read things THAT WILL NEVER BE DISCUSSED IN THIS ELECTION? Whether you like Bob Katter or not, the issues he raises in his three “Letters to My Fellow Australians” are the things we should be discussing.

Here I have reprinted – without express permission – the first of Bob Katter's “Letters to My Fellow Australians”. I cannot confirm the accuracy of his claims, and I do not accept his assumption that (white) Australians are a race. Nevertheless he discusses what is the main concern of Australian Voice, the increasing control of Australia by foreign investors and the way politicians of both major parties have clearly allowed this to happen. Foreign investors are getting everything they want, and we are getting inadequate government services and rising unemployment.



I begin with a summary of Katter's main points in his first letter, mostly in his own words. After this summary I give the full text of his first letter, posted by Dr David Pascoe on facebook: https://www.facebook.com/OVHRepro/posts/873137406147471:0


SUMMARY OF BOB KATTERS FIRST LETTER:

MANUFACTURING IS VANISHING

Seventy percent of Australia’s manufacturing vanishes with the closure of the Australian Motor Vehicle industry next year.

CHINA OWNS THE ONLY PORT IN NORTHERN AUSTRALIA - DARWIN
The only registered Port in the Northern Half of the Australian Coastline has been sold to the Chinese (…) creating a foreign owned tollgate, which under the China Free Trade Agreement provides the Port owner with the right to an UNLIMITED TOLL CHARGES on all Imports and Exports flowing ‘into and out of’ the North West quadrant of Australia.

LNP GOVERNMENT WILL GIVE $5 BILLION TO FOREIGN INTERESTS TO DEVELOP NORTHERN AUSTRALIA
Two members of the Federal Cabinet announced the $5000m North Australia Development Fund. The Australian Financial Review newspaper photographed the “potential investors” (assumed recipients) of the $5000m namely:- Wilmar the giant foreign sugar Corp., JBS Swift the giant foreign beef Corp. and the Chinese CEO of the Port of Darwin. No Australian’s were mentioned.

HALF AVAILABLE LAND IN AUSTRALIA IS FOREIGN OWNED
It was reported in the media, following government statements that 11% of Australia was foreign owned. Since 79% of Australia’s lands is ecologically and or legally precluded from any economic activity, at least half of available land is foreign owned.

CHINA GIVEN $.5 BILLION TO DEVELOP AUSTRALIA'S BIGGEST FARMING OPERATION
Minister Barnaby Joyce announced the Ord Stage 3 as a preferred recipient of Northern Australia $500m Water Fund. The Ord Stage 2 and Stage 3 are both Chinese owned. They will comprise Australia’s Biggest Farming Operation.

CHINA HAS BOUGHT SEVERAL VERY LARGE FARMING OPERATIONS
The Van Diemen's Land Dairy farms Australia’s biggest farming operation purchased by China.
Cubbie Station Australia’s 2nd biggest farming operation is China owned.
Chinese purchase Nicoletti Farms, Australia’s biggest grain grower.
Terra Firma Australia’s biggest cattle producer disclosed 60% of its operations are to be Indonesian owned.
Queensland 2nd biggest cattle station Wulugurang (Wentworth) sold to China.
Glenrock, reportedly NSW most valuable ($45m) cattle property (Hunter Valley) sold to China.

THE AUSTRALIAN DOLLAR IS KEPT ARTIFICIALLY HIGH
Doubling the price of the Australian dollar effectively doubles the price of exports – pricing us off the world market. Similarly it halves the price of imports pricing us out of the Australian market.

UBER CAR HIRE WILL SEND REVENUE OVERSEAS AND CUT FULL-TIME EMPLOYMENT

The New South Wales Government has decided to legalise the Uber Corporation’s car hire operations which at present breach the (Taxi Hire) laws of NSW. This decision effectively and ultimately will take some $2000m of licence values off the (NSW) Australian taxi owners (mostly owner drivers), and gives it to the foreign Corp Uber, franchised by Google. 15,000 full time jobs will vanish into part time employment. 25% of all taxi hire revenues will now go overseas, taken off the people of New South Wales, off the people of Australia, and given to offshore interests.

AUSTRALIAN ECONOMY RESTS ON ONLY TWO VOLATILE COMMODITIES
Successive governments have reduced the Australian economy to a single motivating mechanism “Free Marketism”, the most primitive simplistic and supine of principles has been applied to the most highly complex, and most deadly competitive, of all human activities. The only significant export items we are now left with are iron ore and coal, they comprise $120b of Australia’s exports of $270b, so the country’s economy depends on just two commodities.

OVERSEAS “VISITORS” TAKE JOBS AWAY FROM AUSTRALIANS
What action the Government intends to take to head off ‘the explosion in welfare payments resulting from the policy of mass migration’ – the bringing in each year of over 620,000 people from overseas?
And this 620,000 is into an economy that generates each year only 200,000 jobs but that has over 200,000 school leavers each year chasing those jobs.

MIGRANTS WORK LONGER FOR LESS AND DRIVE AUSTRALIANS ONTO WELFARE
The reality that this mass migration is from countries whose average income is around $5000pa (and this for a 50 and 60 hour working week) the employer for most visa entrants has the power of deportation so the mass migration labour pool provides a very cheap and very docile employee. Consequently the newcomers predictably get job preference over Australians.
Thus it is the Australians that are forced on to welfare.

AUSTRALIANS WILL BE A VANISHING RACE IN 100 YEARS
We Australians are a vanishing race when 20 Australians die they are replaced by only 17 Australians. There were 22 million (m) Australians, here before this mass migration started. This 22m will dwindle down over the next 100 years to only 7m,

A BOMBSHELL DOCUMENT:
BOB KATTER WRITES A LETTER TO HIS FELLOW AUSTRALIANS
These are the very succinct thoughts of one of Australia’s most senior Statesmen.
What you will read is certainly not pretty, but it is a lot closer to the truth than we are likely to hear from any of the major parties.
We intend to run Katter’s letter as a three part series, because there is a lot to absorb and we believe that all Australians need to think, reflect and decide on how our great nation moves forward from our frightening edge-of-the abyss predicament.
Below is Part 1 – The Worst Six Months in Australia’s History.
This will be followed tomorrow by Part 2 – Why has this Deficit on the Current Account exploded? Why is your Country going broke?
On Thursday we will post Part 3 : Let's Go to Economic Solutions.

BOB KATTER – A LETTER TO MY FELLOW AUSTRALIANS
PART 1. THE LAST SIX MONTHS HAVE BEEN THE WORST PERIOD IN AUSTRALIAN HISTORY
To My Fellow Australians,
This last six months ending February 2016 concludes the worst period in Australian History.
I Seventy percent of Australia’s manufacturing vanishes with the closure of the Australian Motor Vehicle industry next year.
“Australia will have made its last motor car.”
With the closure of Australia’s last Whitegoods Plant at Orange all Whitegood manufacturing is gone.
“Australia has made its last washing machine.”
II The only registered Port in the Northern Half of the Australian Coastline has been sold to the Chinese (a) compromising USA defence usage, (b) creating a foreign owned tollgate, which under the China Free Trade Agreement provides the Port owner with the right to an “unlimited” toll charge on all Imports and Exports flowing ‘into and out of’ the North West quadrant of Aust..
Soon after this extraordinary event two members of the Federal Cabinet announced the $5000m North Australia Development Fund. The Australian Financial Review newspaper photographed the “potential investors” (assumed recipients) of the $5000m namely:-
Wilmar the giant foreign sugar Corp., JBS Swift the giant foreign beef Corp. and the Chinese CEO of the Port of Darwin. No Australian’s were mentioned.
III It was reported in the media, following government statements that 11% of Australia was foreign owned. Since 52% of Australia is on the World Register of Deserts and over 20% is “Aboriginal Land” for which no Title Deed is available or possible (and therefore no economic development), and 7% is National Park. In other words 79% of Australia’s lands is ecologically and or legally precluded from any economic activity. So even in the early 2000s more than half of Australia’s usable land was probably foreign owned.
In the last six months:
• Minister Barnaby Joyce announced the Ord Stage 3 as a preferred recipient of Northern Australia $500m Water Fund. The Ord Stage 2 and Stage 3 are both Chinese owned. They will comprise Australia’s Biggest Farming Operation.
• The Van Diemen's Land Dairy farms Australia’s biggest farming operation purchased by China.
• Cubbie Station Australia’s 2nd biggest farming operation is China owned.
• Chinese purchase Nicoletti Farms, Australia’s biggest grain grower.
• Terra Firma Australia’s biggest cattle producer disclosed 60% of its operations are to be Indonesian owned.
• Queensland 2nd biggest cattle station Wulugurang (Wentworth) sold to China.
• Glenrock, reportedly NSW most valuable ($45m) cattle property (Hunter Valley) sold to China.
IV The decision to continue Interest Rates at a 1000% higher level than our competitor nations pressures upward the price of the Australian dollar (Paul Keating and Peter Costello free floated the dollar. It went down to 49 cents and 51 cents respectively. Their subsequent intervention almost doubled the dollar’s value). Interest rates are set by the Federal government’s Reserve Bank (RBA rate is currently over 2.0%. Overseas rates are around 0.3%). Doubling the price of the Aust. $ effectively doubles the price of exports – pricing us off the world market. Similarly it halves the price of imports pricing us out of the Australian market.
V The New South Wales Government has decided to legalise the Uber Corporation’s car hire operations which at present breach the (Taxi Hire) laws of NSW.
This is quite extraordinary. An Australian State govt. will enforce Taxi Hire laws against its own people, but won’t enforce those same laws against a Foreign Corporation.
I. This decision effectively and ultimately will take some $2000m of licence values off the (NSW) Australian taxi owners (mostly owner drivers), and gives it to the foreign Corp Uber, franchised by Google.
II. This will create ultimately a foreign corporate monopoly on Taxi Hire, bad enough in itself, but 15,000 full time jobs will vanish into part time employment (and this employment will be by a foreign corporate monopoly).
III. 25% of all taxi hire revenues will now go overseas, taken off the people of New South Wales, off the people of Australia, and given to offshore interests.
IV. In a deregulated taxi market, services will plummet. Gone will be oversighting and scrutiny of drivers, virtually:- no cameras, no meters, no distress alarm, no base, no taxi ranks, no ‘early hours of the morning’ service, no services for the disabled, no commercial insurance for passengers. But what we will have is variable pricing (ie. sky hi prices at peak hours).
VI The collapse in the World Market Price for iron ore and coal brings the Ideology Chickens home to roost.
Successive governments have reduced the Australian economy to a single motivating mechanism “Free Marketism”, the most primitive simplistic and supine of principles has been applied to the most highly complex, and most deadly competitive, of all human activities.
After all “there is only so much game at the water hole”.
At this juncture we have to buy almost all of our essentials from overseas, but we now have no money to buy these essentials.
The only significant export items we are now left with are iron ore and coal, they comprise $120b of Australia’s exports of $270b. This is bad enough in itself that the country’s economy depends on just two commodities. But worse still, both are facing the most serious long term structural adversity.
VII The ALP, LNP governments ‘mass migration’ programme leaves Australians drowning in debt and increasingly engulfed in foreign culture and values. The failure of Prime Minister Abbott and his Federal Governments ‘belated’ efforts to deport “Visa Overstays” failed miserably.
When the police knocked on doors calling for identification, the media fell upon the P.M like the Red Indians upon General Custer.
Some weeks later Tony Abbot was sacked as Prime Minister. This brought the reality that students and gust workers (section 457 visas) simply, in the main, don’t go home.
A. A question in Parliament from myself sometime before the crackdown asked what action the Government intends to take to head off ‘the explosion in welfare payments resulting from the policy of mass migration’ – the bringing in each year of over 620,000 people from overseas.
And this 620,000 is into an economy that generates each year only 200,000 jobs but that has over 200,000 school leavers each year chasing those jobs.
A week after this Question in Parliament Welfare Minister Christian Porter announced that welfare - now 25% of the budget, within 10 years would grow to 50% of the budget.
B. The overwhelming bulk of this mass migration is from countries that have virtually:-
No democracy,
No Rule of Law,
No Judeo Christian underpinnings, and
Very little egalitarian tradition.
Clearly the Great Pillars of Our Way of Life shall be pressured if not actually undermined (this is already creating serious community tensions).
These two effects are greatly magnified by:-
I Firstly, the reality that this mass migration is from countries whose average income is around $5000pa (and this for a 50 and 60 hour working week) the employer for most visa entrants has the power of deportation so the mass migration labour pool provides a very cheap and very docile employee. Consequently the newcomers predictably get job preference over Australians.
Thus it is the Australians that are forced on to welfare.
II Secondly, we Australians are a vanishing race when 20 Australians die they are replaced by only 17 Australians. There were 22 million (m) Australians, here before this mass migration started. This 22m will dwindle down over the next 100 years to only 7m, and most of this 7m will be fairly old people.
People entering under this mass migration programme, in stark contrast, within 20 years will see ‘their’ numbers grow from the 2 ½ m that are here now to (with children) over 16m within 20 years.
(end of Section 1.
Section 2 – Economic solutions - will be posted tomorrow (Wednesday).
On Thursday we will post Part 3 : Let's Go to Economic Solutions
