Home Invasions & Assaults 2018 to date.

Possessing any object specifically for the purpose of self-defence, lethal or non-lethal, is a criminal offence in Australia. There are many women, raped and/or murdered, who would have been liable to prosecution had they been carrying anything that might have saved them.

We NEED to stop talking about more firearms restrictions and start talking about WHY people are getting killed!!! I don’t give a rat’s arse what they are killed with, car, knife, hammer, gun, they are dead! Why aren’t concerned groups & people asking “why are people killing?” AND “What can be done to stop the killing?” Are they all brain dead???!!!

The family at the Margaret River property that got shot needed help, but they did not get that help, & IF what the police are saying is true, that the shooter was the Grandfather, then it is pretty obvious that they did need help!

 Three guns found at the Margaret River property shootings, I have more than three guns & I haven’t killed anyone! Hell, I am not legally allowed to use my guns to defend the lives of my family or to save my own life! What is a matter with people, & it is people, not just the government. People who call for disarmament! Don’t they understand that criminals do NOT obey the laws???!!! They can confiscate the guns totally from all the law abiding licenced gun owners in Australia, & the criminals will still have guns, people will still be killed. When they realise this will they give our guns back to us? Hell no! What is done is done!
I am finding it really hard to understand why the majority of Australians are so bloody stupid & ignorant. This is a societal problem, not a gun problem, & so long as allow this corrupt to the core government to RULE Australia, then our society’s problems with crime, poverty, homelessness, unemployment, high taxes, high rates, low wages, inappropriate council fees, environmental pollution, Big government & corporatism & the loss of our human rights will continue! This government in total is the cause of all our problems, & yet the majority of Australians either can’t see that or just refuse to do anything about that!
So every day we will continue to read about crime, read about killings, rapes, muggings, kidnappings, violent attacks, robberies with violence knowing that all this could be significantly reduced by implementing a new government system & yet knowing it will never happen. No wonder there is so much depression & suicides. I am now lost for words.

Thoughts For The Week. Gun Control!

Well the Port Arthur Massacre certainly worked, & it is the belief of many, including some high ranking qualified people, that the massacre was orchestrated with government knowledge, & Martin Bryant has been falsely accused & imprisoned without any evidence of his guilt & without a coronal enquirie. The word is Bryant has been held in solitary confinement all this time to stop him talking to anyone. Certainly no news has been forthcoming from ex prisoners or the press!
For those that don’t WANT to believe this, ask yourself this question: If the powers that be want the rest of our guns, when & where will the next shooting be?

In Australia we have had our semi-automatic rifles & pump action shotguns confiscated! DO YOU TRUST OUR GOVERNMENT NOW!!!


The Purge, The Movie.

Click here to view the original post.



The purge is about the government reducing the population, mostly the poor & disadvantaged. They came up with a scheme that would appeal to all the sickos like themselves! An annual time of the year when you could kill with no legal consequences. 

I thought this was a great movie, full of action. A few loopholes, things you & I would not do, but on the whole worth watching. The scary part is that I can see this could easily happen here in Australia. We have a totally corrupt to the core government who is actually paying the Indonesian government to kill our WW2 Allies in West Papua. This is the genocide that the world in ignoring! So yes, I think our sick government is quite capable of turning on Australian citizens if it means gaining more power, control & wealth. Remember, it is now illegal in Australia to purchase, own or carry anything for use in self defence of for the defence of others!!! Think about that!

Tomorrow When The War Began & The Hunger Games. Are they so far fetched?!

Click here to view the original post.
Tomorrow When The War Began is about Australia being invaded by Indonesia. Now if you are wondering why the world has gone silent on the Indonesian government’s Genocide on West Papuans, it is because many countries have an investment in the wealth of West Papua, namely the gold mines. Australia is one of these which is why it has not only trained the Indonesian military but it is also funding the genocide of our WW2 allies! That’s right, we have no honour left!
So if we were invaded, what makes the majority of complicit Australians think that anyone would come to our aid???!!!

The Hunger Games, based on the wealth of the government overpowering the people & basically turning them into slaves. Too far fetched for reality? Okay, ask yourself this; if Australia owns gold mines in West Papua & is funding the genocide of West Papuans, where is this money from these mines going? Are we reaping any of this “blood money”? No we are not & personally I would not want to, I find the whole thing disgusting & almost beyond belief!!! So our corrupt to the core government is a law unto its own, it is getting wealthier along with many corporations, whilst many of us are living below the poverty line & paying more taxes. You still think the Hunger Games are too far fetched?
Remember, our government is after our guns, & they have already confiscated our semi-auto bunny guns. The only people that can now legally own & use semi-automatic guns are the Police & the Military!!!

Australia Declares War!!!

Trophy Photo!!!

Australia declares war, does this title get your attention? Australia military have trained the Indonesian military to commit Genocide on West Papuans, & we back this Genocide financially!!! If this is not declaring war on our WW2 allies, then what would you call it???

Why does it seem that I am the only one bringing this Genocide to people’s attention? Why is the rest of the world ignoring this Genocide? Is it because the so called world leader Donald Trump has an interest in the gold mine in West Papua & also condones this genocide?

Rape & Murder, their suffering & blood is on the majority of Australian’s hands!

The slaughter of men, women & children & the majority of Australians say nothing & allow this to continue!

What have the Australian people become that they can sit on their hands & say “she’ll be right mate” when these people on our own doorstep are being slaughtered & persecuted? Since when did our government have the power in our name to say who lives & who dies? Seeing as our government is actually a part of this genocide of innocent people, what makes you think you can trust our government with your welfare, your lives? You think our military would not kill Australian citizens? Well they trained the Indonesian military to kill West Papuans & they were our allies in world war 2!!! Have you seen what our police do to some civilians? Did you know it is now illegal to carry anything for the purpose of defending yourself against an attack?

Did you know that even if you own a gun you are not legally allowed to use that gun for self defence or for the defence of your family in a home invasion? Our government has confiscated our semi-auto bunny rifles, & shotguns, which means that the only people who now can legally use semi-automatic guns are the police & the military!!!

I don’t think that my making posts like this will have any influence on Australian citizens what so ever, which is a shame, because that means that the majority of Australian citizens are complicit with the corruption of our government & its control of the Australian people. Well you can bet your bottom dollar that if TEOTWAWKI ever happens in Australia, the majority of Australians in the city will NOT survive. Do not expect any assistance from Donald Trump, he has an interest in the gold mine in West Papua so I have been told! Don’t expect any help from our own government or the UN, you will be on your own!

Australians No Longer Care About Other Australians. Brainwashed by the Australian government?

Click here to view the original post.

Homeless people are people with no permanent home, they sleep in cars, family garages, in doss houses or perhaps a family member’s home.

People living rough live on park benches under bridges, anywhere they can find where they hope they will be safe.

The Australian government DOES NOT CARE about these people, & the majority of Australian citizens do not care about these people. Just think about that, is this what we have become as a nation, as a people? Do we have no honour at all? No caring attitude towards fellow Australians in need?

We have the power to put things right, it is quite obvious that the government is not governing Australia properly, it is quite obvious that the care & welfare of the Australian people is not their priority. Oh you may be fine, you may have a good job & a nice home so why should you care about other Australians who have nothing?! What does this say about you as a person who is not willing to say ENOUGH IS ENOUGH!

Growing your own food is a must for future survival, you can’t trust foods from overseas, & Australia & the UK are producing less & less of our own foods! If it all hits the fan, there will be no foods to purchase, it will be a matter of grow or forage or starve.

Recently we put in a new berry patch for growing Boysenberries & Young berries, & we added another pumpkin patch ready for next spring.

We have a lot of regrowth tree saplings to get rid of for fire safety, so we spent some time cutting & mulching for the new berry patch.

Self Defence Law in Australia. REFERRAL TO LAW AND SAFETY COMMITTEE.

Wednesday 22 November 2017

REFERRAL TO LAW AND SAFETY COMMITTEE

John Barilaro Deputy Premier Minister for Regional NSW Minister for Skills Minister for Small Business Wednesday 22 November 2017 REFERRAL TO LAW AND SAFETY COMMITTEE The Deputy Premier and Minister for Regional NSW .

John Barilaro today wrote to the Legislative Assembly Committee on Law and Safety to request it inquire into the operation of the Firearms Act 2016 in relation to people to reasonably believe they are proportionately responding to a threat to them or their family. The Committee has since published the terms of reference which also include:

· The adequacy of protections for victims of a home invasion in responding to a threat;

· Previous incidents involving a response to a threat which resulted in the suspension of a firearm license; and

· The current awareness of firearms license holders of their rights and responsibilities.

Mr Barilaro said the referral to the Law and Safety Committee stems largely from an incident involving a Bungowannah Farmer David Dunstan. Mr Dunstan used an unloaded rifle to scare an intruder who came to his back door at 3AM on 14 September 2017 armed with a block of wood and a knife. His wife Andrea and their three children were at home asleep at the time. Mr Barilaro said that after meeting David and his wife Andrea in Albury on Monday 25 September 2017, he felt compelled to take action. “As a father of three daughters, David and Andrea’s story struck a nerve with me, as it did with so many people,” Mr Barilaro said. “The case raised a number of serious questions about one’s ability to defend their home and family,” he said. “I have referred this matter to the Committee and asked it to look at whether current legislation does enough to protect the victims of home invasion. “There is a lot of confusion about what our rights are to defend our homes and families from intruders, and this case has highlighted the need for the laws to be examined,” he said. Mr Barilaro said Mr Dunstan told him how upon seeing the intruder, he retrieved his unloaded rifle from the gun cupboard, and then encouraged the intruder into the passenger seat of his car. Mr Dunstan says when he drove up his driveway he was soon met by a police car which had been in the area investigating a similar incident. As part of the police investigation the offender was charged and remanded in custody. The next day police officers also seized all of Mr Dunstan’s guns and suspended his firearms license. On 3 October 2017 Andrea Dunstan also received a letter from the Licensing and Permits Authorities at the Firearms Registry, stating that her license would be subject to a special condition that prohibited her from storing or possessing firearms at their residential address or any address where her husband (Mr Dunstan) resides or frequents.

The government claims we do not need guns for self defence. I beg to differ!!!

It is even illegal in Australia for law abiding citizens to purchase or carry pepper spray or tasers. I say forget about the pepper spray & tasers, we want to be legally allowed to purchase & carry firearms for the purpose of self defence & for the defence of our families. This is a human right that we Australian citizens are being denied by our government.

Gun confiscation was never anything to do with the safety of Australian citizens, the fact that there have been no mass shootings since the Port Arthur massacre has nothing to do with it. People are killing other people with knives, such as the massacre in China, & the terrorist attack in London, no guns were used in these killings. But we NEED to be able to use a gun for our defence, do you really want to have to get into a knife fight or defend yourself with just your fists against a bigger person? This is not sensible or practicle.

Human Rights. David Leyonhjelm is correct: Australians should be able to arm themselves against terror

Click here to view the original post.
These basic human rights are:

Universal: they belong to all of us – everybody in the world.

Inalienable: they cannot be taken away from us.

Indivisible and interdependent: governments should not be able to pick and choose which rights are respected.

Article 1 Everyone is born free and equal in dignity and with rights.

Article 2 You should never be discriminated against for any reason. Rights belong to all people, whatever our differences.

Article 3 Everyone has the rights to life, liberty and security.

Article 4 No-one shall be held in slavery or servitude.

 Article 5 No-one shall be subjected to torture or to cruel, inhuman or degrading treatment or punishment.

Article 6 You have the right to be treated as a person in the eyes of the law. Article 7 You have the right to be treated by the law in the same way as everyone else. Everyone has a right to protection against violations of their human rights.

Article 8 If your rights under law are violated, you have the right to see justice done in a court or tribunal.

Article 9 No-one shall be subject to arbitrary arrest, detention or exile. Article 10 You have the right to a fair and public trial by an independent and impartial tribunal.

Article 11 Everyone is to be presumed innocent until proven guilty in a fair trial. No one should be charged with a criminal offence for an act which wasn’t an offence at the time the act was done.

Article 12 No-one has the right to intrude in your private life or interfere with your home and family without good reason. No-one has the right to attack your good name without reason.

Article 13 You have the right to freedom of movement within your country. Everyone has the right to leave a country and to return home.

Article 14 You have the right to seek and to enjoy asylum from persecution in other countries. You may not invoke this right if fleeing just laws in your own country.

Article 15 You have the right to a nationality.

Article 16 You have the right to marry and to raise a family. Men and women have the same rights when they are married and when they are separated. Article 17 You have the right to own property and it cannot randomly be taken away from you.

Article 18 You have the right to freedom of thought, conscience and religion and to peacefully express those beliefs in teaching, practice and worship. Article 19 You have the right to freedom of opinion and expression.

Article 26 You have the right to an education.

Article 27 No-one may stop you from participating in the cultural life of your community.

Article 28 You have the right to live in the kind of world where your rights and freedoms are respected.

Article 29 We all have a responsibility to the people around us and should protect their rights and freedoms.

Article 30 There is nothing in this declaration that justifies any person or country taking away the rights to which we are all entitled.

The Australian government has denied us a human rights, as law abiding citizens we SHOULD have the right to protect ourselves & our families, but that right has been taken from us with a law which states that we are not legally allowed to purchase or carry: Pepper spray, Tasers, or guns for the sole purpose of self defence & the defence of our families!
This law does not stop crime, it does not stop home invasions, muggings, beatings, rapes or murders. All it does is leave us defenceless.
So what are you going to do about this? Our government system is totally corrupt to the core, there is little point in begging to the government. I have started petitions, but hardly anyone bothers to sign! You still think we live in a free country? Think again. Most people are totally apathetic to the loss of our human rights & exist with their heads buried in the sand.

This is why our anti-self defence laws need changing. We are not legally allowed to purchase or carry ANYTHING for self defence, no pepper sprays, no tasers, & no guns. HOW are we supposed to protect ourselves & our families?! This is not a one off, these home invasions, attacks, killings & rapes are happening all the time & more frequently. The police can’t protect us, and the government will NOT protect us or even give us the human right to protect ourselves.
Remember, when voting time comes, vote first for those that support the right to own guns for self defence, vote for pro gun candidates. Do NOT vote for the Liberals or Labor.

The deadly diseases being released as ice thaws. Surviving the next pandemic.

Scientists have raised the issue of new old diseases being released by the global warming melting the ice. They say it is quite possible that these diseases have been lying dormant since before the coming of man. This means that we will have no immunity to these diseases, & we will have no medicines to combat these diseases. Once released & started they could sweep the globe annihilating humanity completely except perhaps in isolated cases.

In this day & age an infected person could get on a plane & be in another country before they even know they are carrying a disease!
So there is a hell of a biggy to add to our lists!

More on Gun Control & the Recent Firearms Amnesty.

Click here to view the original post.

We are seeing the use of terms such as “Illegal”, “Arsenals” “guns off the streets” & other sensationalising terms. So who made these guns illegal in the first place? Our government. Some guns being handed in now date back to WW2. All these thousands of “Illegal Guns” have supposedly been “on our streets” since WW2 & we only had one mass shooting which was in Tasmania!!! Don’t you think this sounds a little odd?

Now we are hearing about private “arsenals”, not collections or ownership but arsenals. Well if these private “arsenals” are such a risk, considered so dangerous, how come we have not had mass shootings like they have had in America? The confiscation of law abiding gun owner’s guns after the Port Arthur shooting did nothing to stop crime, because these guns BELONGED to law abiding gun owners. But now you might as well put a poster out front of every Australian home declaring “This House Not Protected With Firearms”!!! Now we are seeing regular home invasions, AND you can face charges if you try to defend yourself or your family. Australian women are attacked & assaulted every 2 minutes in Australia & all the government did was to cut funding to women’s help centers!!!

Surely we should have the right to defend ourselves & our families from harm? Yet in Australia it is illegal to purchase or carry ANYTHING for use in self defence, no guns, no pepper sprays, no tasers, not even marking paint!

Farmers used to be able to carry hand guns whilst they went about their daily work. Some carried snake guns which were cut down .410 shotguns for protection against snakes. Not any more. These were law abiding people who were suddenly classed as criminals because the government deemed it so! Shotguns, the farmer’s stock in trade along with the little .22 rimfire rifle is now under attack by the Greens & the anti-gun lobby. Semi-auto .22s have already been banned, & now they want our shotguns as well!!!

As I see it it is no good us complaining & protesting against more gun control & the loss of our human rights. We need to put an end to this. Our government is supposed to be looking after our well being, that means ALL OF US. Not just big companies, not just the wealthy, but ALL OF US. This is no longer happening. Whether it be the environment, our safety, our freedoms, our human rights, our well being, or the right to choose our own lifestyle, the right to defend ourselves, our families & our homes. All that is gone now.

I think Australians need to ask themselves where this is all going, is there no end to the government seemingly uncaring attitude. If we have lost the right to defend ourselves & our families without risk of prosecution, then what rights do we have left that matters? People are dieing out there! Do you think that this can’t happen to you? If the preservation of our freedom & the right to defend ourselves is NOT the most important thing in our lives, what is?

‘Firearms level field against an aggressor:’ Shooters Union Australia.

Click here to view the original post.
STATE laws should be changed to protect the rights of homeowners and help vulnerable victims protect themselves against attackers.

That’s according to Shooters Union Australia which is calling for the State Government to change ambiguous laws which leave licensed gun owners at risk of prosecution for defending their homes from intruders.

SUA vice president David Brown said the reforms should go further and allow background-checked and licensed residents, including vulnerable women, to carry guns as protection.

“We believe in everyone’s right to be background checked and licensed. Also the right to keep firearms for the purpose of self-defence as it is the only means of levelling the playing field against an aggressor,” Mr Brown said.

Living Off Grid. Rainwater Collection & Storage.

Click here to view the original post.
We have 4 rainwater tanks for the main house (Linstock), the main house garden & the main house outside laundry. The same 5000 gallon tank that feeds the outside laundry also feeds Elm Cottage via a 12 volt pump under the cottage. Both houses are solar powered.
 The lower cement 5000 gallon water tank is fed from the roof of the main house via down pipes from both the front & the rear of the house. The water from this lower tank is then pumped up to the higher tank which gravity feeds the main house.

 This pump is also a fire pump, it draws water from the stop cock on the side of the lower tank & pumps it up to the higher tank via a pipe that runs underground.

 This image shows the two “first flush” pipes on the lower tank. Any dirt on the roof or in the gutters is washed into these two pipes. When full, a ball float in the pipe rises to the top closing off these tow pipes & allows the rest of the water to flow into the tank. Over time, the water in these pipes is supposed to slowly run out via the hoses at the bottom, but invariably the small hole blocks with dirt, so every now & then I remove the bottom of the pipes, drain & wash out the filters.
 

The garden tank was placed on higher ground to the level of the garden so it would gravity feed better, but this meant that it was too far away from the house to use an overhead down pipe to fill it from the roof at the end of the house. So I run the down pipe underground then back up into the top of the tank.

This is the new 5000 gallon poly tank that feeds the outside laundry, & Elm Cottage. This tank is fed from the roof of Elm Cottage, but the ground close to the cottage was too soft to provide a firm base for the tank, so we placed it on higher ground. Again this meant that the tank was too far away to use overhead down pipes, so again the pipe to the tank from the cottage roof was placed underground then back up & into the top of the tank. The other pipe you can see is an overflow pipe which I have run into a water butt.
Cattail Pond is actually a dam we had put in to collect & store more water from the header stream in Butterfly Valley. It also enables us to keep fish for food. Cattail Pond feeds the gardens at both houses via another fire pump at the side of the dam.

Bugging In VS Bugging Out. How Safe Are Your Homes?

Click here to view the original post.

Many if not most people including preppers have decided that bugging in, staying at home in the city is the best way to go. I am not going to say that bugging out to the wilderness/bush is going to be easy, certainly if you have had no previous experience & have not learnt any primitive skills, then it will be very hard for these people. But is the option of bugging in really a good idea? I don’t think so.

In the city when the electricity goes off there will be no power, no cooking, no sewage so no toilets, & no water on tap. We are talking a major shtf situation here, long term problems. Not safe to go outside & I don’t think you will be safe inside. Preppers boo hoo the idea that gangs, raiders, thugs could run a Mack truck through a house or set their home on fire. Think again! If they can’t simply break in & take what you have, they will destroy your home.

So you have food & water supplies, how long do you think they will last? There will be no hunting, no foraging. The supermarkets will have been raided & all stocks gone. Too dangerous to cook outside & too dangerous to bury your toilet buckets outside.
Think about it.

The Australian Government has banned the right to obtain, carry & use anything for the sole purpose of self defence, & this is the result. Australian homes & law abiding citizens are left defenseless. NO guns, NO pepper spray, NO tasers, NO anything!!! One would have thought that it was a human right to defend oneself & ones family!!! NOT IN AUSTRALIA IT ISN’T!

Tesla to build world’s largest battery

Tesla CEO, Elon Musk says he will build the world’s largest battery in 100 days.

Tesla is teaming up with French energy company Neoen to build the world’s largest battery within 80 days in South Australia.

The state has been struggling with energy problems, and in an attempt to stabilise the energy Tesla has made a deal to pay A$50m if they fail to deliver the project on time. The grid-scale battery storage could help to even out price spikes, prevent blackouts and improve reliability across the network.

At a conference in Adelaide, Australia Tesla CEO, Elon Musk said the battery will be more than three times the size of the current record holder. It is a lithium ion battery and will be 100 megawatts, compared to the next largest battery, which is 30 megawatts. Tesla estimates the battery could power 30,000 homes. The 129MWh battery, which is paired with a wind farm, is designed to improve the security of electricity supplies across South Australia.

Musk told reporters in Adelaide this month he is confident in the techniques and design of the system, although it will be challenging: “There is certainly some risk, because this will be the largest battery installation in the world by a significant margin. When you make something three times as big, does it still work as well?”.

In March Musk made his pledge on Twitter the he could deliver the battery within 100 days of signing the contract or it would be delivered free. Jay Weatherill, the South Australia state’s premier, confirmed the deal, which now is a part of the government’s A$550m energy plan.

“I’m thrilled with the selection of Neoen and Tesla, whose experience and world leadership in energy security and renewables will help South Australia take charge of its energy future,” Weatherill said.

Your Rights To Self Defence In Australia. You have none!

Click here to view the original post.


The Australian government has not only cut funding to & closed women’s help centers, but it has also made it illegal for any law abiding citizen to purchase or carry anything that may specifically be used for self defence! Now what does that tell you about our government?! You still think that our government is looking after our best interests?! What is it that makes the majority of Australians so apathetic to the needs of others? What is it that makes the majority of Australians vote for a corrupt government year after year with no thought to getting rid of the whole corrupt system?!
We have lost rights as citizens, we have lost human rights, we have lost our freedom to this corrupt government system! The majority of Australians have no honour & no self respect, so how can we expect them to respect others?!


NUMBER OF SEXUAL ASSAULT VICTIMS REACH SEVEN YEAR HIGH

During 2016, the number of Sexual assault victims increased for the fifth consecutive year, up from 21,948 victims in 2015 to 23,052 victims, to reach their highest levels in seven years. The largest increases occurred in Tasmania (up 15% or 27 victims) and Victoria (up 14% or 662 victims). In contrast, the number of Sexual assault victims decreased in the Northern Territory (down 6% or 23 victims) and South Australia (down 4% or 69 victims) over the same period. (Tables 1 & 6)

Across all of the selected states and territories for which relationship of offender to victim data was available, most Sexual assault victims knew their offender and more frequently reported experiencing victimisation by a non-family member (which may include an ex-partner, friend, acquaintance, neighbour, employee, employer, co-worker, guardian, carer, teacher etc.). (Table 11)

In 2016, the number of victims of FDV-related Sexual assault rose by 6%, up 491 victims from 2015 to reach 8,210 victims. The majority of these victims (85%) were female (6,942 victims). (Table 22)

ROBBERIES RISE FOR THE FIRST TIME IN SIX YEARS

The total number of Robbery victims rose (5%) for the first time since 2010, up from 8,968 victims in 2015 to 9,403 victims. The increase was largely driven by an increase in victims of Armed robbery, up 7% or 328 victims nationally. (Table 1)

Defence Industry Minister Christopher Pyne says he wants Australia to become a major arms exporter on par with Britain, France and Germany and use exports to cement relationships with countries in volatile regions such as the Middle East. To read in full click the above link.  http://www.smh.com.au/federal-politics/political-news/defence-industry-minister-christopher-pyne-wants-australia-to-become-major-arms-exporter-20170715-gxbv4m.html

While spending 26 Billion dollars a year on our near non-existent military forces, he has a huge import budget but as he has few people, (all chiefs and no Indians) involved, no one will set up a factory, spend millions on research and development, spend more millions on tooling and staff recruitment to offer a product to equip a few battalions, a few thousand products to a few thousand men. Then Australia would have to compete
with Austrian plastic fantastic firearms and Chinese uniforms. Christopher Payne “IS DREAMING”,
 If he wanted to do anything seriously he would return to the 1903 Defence Act which encouraged the Militia the NRA Rifle Clubs which sustained the Australian Military Forces through two World Wars, Korea and Vietnam Wars. The Defence Ministry subsidised the purchase of the battle rifle of the time, the Lee Enfield .303, subsidised the ammunition and made local rifle ranges in every small town and hamlet in Australia. The Club Captain was the O.I.C. in charge of discipline and under the Defence Act of 1903 could call out the Militia for Aid to Civil Powers or in Defence of the Realm. Every man, or member had to take the Oath of Allegiance and was exempt from all State licence requirements.  He or she was a sworn in member of the Militia, part of the Defence Force of Australia, these hundreds of thousands of shooters created a service industry and sent trained shooters into the battalions of the AIF and the Chocolate Soldiers who stopped the Japanese in New Guinea and ultimately saved Australia. For a very small investment Australia was given a purpose, and a market for its Lithgow Rifles, its ammunition manufacturing and led the world in designing rifle sights, spotting scopes and proper cleaning equipment.
This market was again boosted by the Defence Act of 1909 which heralded a universal military training system for 18-25 year old males in operation in Australia from 1911-29. That was, all Australian boys aged 14-18 were compelled to train as cadets, as a type of apprenticeship to the adult army. After four years in the Army Cadets, they remained members of the Militia the NRA rifle clubs until they were 25. This was a significant social and military activity. Hundreds of thousands of cadets were placed in uniforms and graced the drill halls, and rifle ranges that had been newly built in almost every city, town and village of the nation.

Cooroy Rifle Club 1914, produced soldiers like the one below.

The Minister for Defence, Sir William Glasgow said he believed that Australia’s war effort, had been based on the old volunteer and militia system, and which without, it could not have assumed the proportions that it did.
Nothing has changed, we have the same materials, the same young people, we have the room for the rifle ranges, and training area’s, if Defence Industry Minister Christopher Pyne was half serious, if he wanted to create a defence industry, its like the chicken and the egg, he has to create our own Defence system, its fine having the latest electronic gadgets but to have a defence we need to look to Israel and Switzerland defence, we have to get the population involved and interested. If the Australian government encourage and supported a Militia/ rifle clubs using the equipment of the day, competition would develop invention, the numbers involved would create a market for military goods. Already we have a structure of Service Rifle Clubs, we used to shoot practical rifle competitions, prior to our governments disarmament hysteria in 1996.

Why wouldn’t the shooters above assist in producing the soldier below?
Just a half a billion of his current import budget would make a massive change to our society and give a huge purpose to a large amount of young men and women who do not want a life cooking the Colonels Chicken, or cleaning tables at Maccas. They would love jobs in the military, militia or a defence industry. It needs to happen sooner rather than later, the world is not a happy place.
………………….
URGENT not much Time Left to Change the mind of your local State and Federal MP.
NSW has already passed and started Registration of Ammunition, in compliance with the National Firearm Agreement, those traitorous Police Ministers and their Yes-men, unanimously agreed to impose this in every State of Australia.

The 660,000 licenced shooters of Queensland, (growing numbers at 35% per anum) do not have much time left to raise the alarm and tell all, that the new NFA (National Firearm Agreement) that our Labor Premier has ready to put before parliament, does not just alter the categories of Adler Lever Action shotguns, but its real intent is to register and limit all ammunition sales, creating another huge empire of public servants, recording, reporting, accessing and restricting your right to purchase ammunition. This will impose a huge burden on every shooter and on every point of sale, that has to employ people to register and report that information to the State.
Limiting Ammunition when Australia is being encroached upon, the word ‘invaded’ could be used, by 100 million feral pigs or more, they double their numbers ever year, so the CSIRO tells us. We also have huge external defence problems that would by any sensible government encourage production of ammunition and firearms.
Prices will rise and it will cause a black market in ammunition to thrive. More police will be needed to spy on shooters and gunshops, so the Police Union and bureaucracy will continue to increase in size. Criminals, who have no shortage of money will have no problem acquiring ammunition, the government knows this and so does any rational thinking person. This is just another small step with a big government boot to suppress the freedom of the individual.
Other sections of this NFA (National Firearm Agreement) (that no one, but government agreed to) is in changing the current requirement of collectors firearms and heirlooms, from temporary inoperable to permanently inoperable. Instead of a firing pin removal, or a trigger lock, these ancient masterpieces of invention that have huge emotional value to families will have to be welded up into a solid lump of junk.
So please inform your local members of parliament of every party. Emphasise the fact that you and your friends and families will all vote against them at the next election if they do not oppose these further impositions. They do not have to be told which way you voted last time. All federal politicians have already given their assent except David Ean Leyonhjelm so all accept him must be told that you will not vote for them.
Even ‘One Nation’ has these words in their policy “maintain the general principle of the National Firearms Agreement in restricting access to high powered, high capacity firearms.”
More than likely they have never read the NFA, but they have to be told by individuals. Don’t wait for your association to do it for you. Its numbers that count, every vote down, and given to another Independent means that they have to find two other votes to make up for that loss.
When you visit, your local member, he will more than likely blame everyone but himself, he will start with the opposition and then when he realises you know that both major parties have given bilateral support for the agreement. He will even look to blame his own party for a way out, or an excuse.
Just tell him to stand as an independent and proclaim his own policy,
A. For the individual right of law abiding citizens to own firearms,
B. To end long arm registration, to allow semi autos and pumps, and
C. Ensure that all law abiding citizens can use the Right of Self Defence as a reason to obtain the firearms that they believe are suitable for this need.
Remember if a Snap Election is Announced and you do not have time to vet your local candidates  put Labor last followed by the Greens and other major parties that are standing. Only know them by what they produce. Ron.

Economic Security Equals Personal Security.
As this Bulletin is concerned with our Freedoms, our Rights and our Security, its time to take a broader brush and give a lot of thought to our Economic Security.
WHY DO WE HAVE STARVATION IN A LAND OF PLENTY?
Why do we have an economic system that turns the government into an end, instead of a means, and the individual into a means instead of an end?
What has happened to the Constitutional demand that all institutions exist to serve the individual, that the State exists to serve its citizens? Now it appears that the only reason for individuals to exist, is to serve the State.
If it moves, tax it. If it keeps moving, regulate it. If it stops moving, subsidize it. The problem is not that people are taxed too little, the problem is that government spends too much. —Ronald Reagan.
Real economic security would mean that individuals in society must have sufficient purchasing power to provide effective demand in order to consume what they produce. Absolute economic security resides in the possession of a sufficient income at all times to buy the goods and services without which there would be no demand, no production and no payments of wages.
We have next to ask, where do wages, and dividends come from? All incomes as purchasing power are distributed into the hands of consumers through the operations of productive industry. All real purchasing power arises in production. It takes the form of wages, salaries and dividends paid directly to individuals engaged in industry or indirectly from them, through taxation, to those bureaucrats and beneficiaries who spend the money we produce. With loans they are spending future income from production. There is no other form of purchasing power in the Western World system of economics.
Why is there never enough purchasing power in our national economy?

Government doesn’t produce, it only consumes and produces a large negative effect. Here are some of the reasons we have poverty amongst the plenty.
In 2015-16 it took $405.4 billion in taxation, but its total expenses for 2015-16 were $434.5 billion, so the balance was a further debt of 29.1 billion. Just paying the interest on that is taking spending from our future earnings, or the earnings of our children.
In 2012 Australian Households spent a total of $642 billion on general living costs but in the same year only earned $521.3 billion in wages and income. So again the balance goes in a $120.7 billion dollar debt which has to be paid from our future earning.

The manufacturing industry in Australia has declined from 30% of Gross Domestic Product in the 1960s to 12% of GDP in 2007. Yet in 2012 we still donated $7.7 billion in Foreign Aid.
From the figures above we can understand that although Australians earn over a Trillion dollars annually, their government masters remove over $400 billion in taxation which is used to pay their governments interest on its debts. (According to a report released in October 2013, the nation’s poverty rate increased from 10.2 per cent to 11.8 per cent, from 2000/01 to 2013.)  The above general formula is endemic to most countries in the Western World, the governments are run in debt to the banks and so to are 90% of their populations.

There is no single cause operating in the western world today which is of such importance and is so fraught with the possibility of world disaster, as is the disparity between purchasing power and prices. The longer it continues, unchecked the more certain and with more speed approaches either Depression, or War, or Both.  (Please read the rest of this article)

North Korea Threat Sparks Rush To Build Bomb Shelters

HardenedStructures.com

The rising tensions generated by North Korea’s missile tests have convinced people around the world that it’s time to restock the bunker. Among the new generation of preppers is Australian businessman Nathan Stewart.

“If North Korea gets the ability to launch a long-range nuclear warhead, we have a place to go, which is why we are rebuilding it,” Stewart told The Australian. “We are going to restore the shelter to its former glory so it is fully operational.”

Stewart is bringing back a bunker on his estate in Australia’s Adelaide Hills. The shelter — the size of a house — features a kitchen, living room, two bathrooms and enough space for 14 people. It was built in the 1970s by the estate’s former owner, deceased businessman Kim Bonython.

North Korea Threatens Australia, Too

Stewart is afraid that Australia’s historic alliance with the United States will lead to a conflict with North Korea. Recent statements are fueling his anxiety.

Are Your Prepared For A Downed Grid? Get Backup Electricity Today!

“If Australia persists in following the U.S. moves to isolate and stifle the DPRK [North Korea], and remains a shock brigade of the U.S. master, this will be a suicidal act of coming within the range of the nuclear strike of the strategic force of the DPRK,” the North Korean government said earlier this year.

Stewart seems to have little faith in the ability of Australia’s government to protect him from North Korean missiles.

“We are redoing the bunker structure with the latest technology to make sure it is sound and all sealed properly,” Stewart said. “We will ensure it is fully supplied and stocked with years of water and non-perishable goods.”

Stewart is far from alone. U.S. bomb shelter makers have reported a 700 percent increase in sales, The Australian reported. Sales of bomb shelters are also skyrocketing in Japan.

A Japanese shelter builder called Earth Shift is reporting a tenfold increase in sales, Reuters reported.

“It takes time and money to build a shelter,” Nobuko Oribe, the managing director of another shelter company, Oribe Seiki Seisakusho, said. “But all we hear these days, in this tense atmosphere, is that they want one now. They ask us to come right away and give them an estimate.”

Another Japanese builder, Shelter Co., is showing off a one-room bunker designed to withstand a blast of a “Hiroshima class nuclear bomb,” Business Insider reported. The shelter features steel doors and many of the comforts of home, including upholstered chairs and carpeting.

It looks like bomb shelters are all the rage again thanks to Kim Jong-un.

Firearm Owner’s Freedom at the Cross Roads.

Thoughts For The Week.

Firearm Owner’s Freedom at the Cross Roads.

The NEW ‘NFA’ will impose the worst restrictions on our rights since the 1996 Un informed debacle of John Howard’s implementation of the UN. 23 point Civilian Disarmament Treaty. Yet, we the law abiding firearm owners have never been so well equipped to oppose it, we have over 2 million licenced shooters in Australia, (only 13 million people voted in the 2016 Federal Election) we have the Internet, and Facebook which is our means of communication, a force that is now rivalling and taking precedence over the Foreign controlled mainstream media machine. Also, like the rest of the western world the voters are tired of Tweedle Dee, Tweedle Dum politics, tired of getting the same result from both mainstream parties. This has caused a fine line with no large majorities in any of the Australian Parliaments.

“There are more people on the waiting list to join the Melbourne Cricket Club than there are rank-and-file members in all Australian political parties put together.” (Cathy Alexander, 18th July 2013. https://gmggranger.wordpress.com/2013/10/15/quikstats-australian-political-party-membership/

“There are more members of the SSAA than there are rank and file members in all Australian political parties put together.” Ron Owen

As Party membership has dwindled the mainstream political parties have refused to make their membership figures public, but mainstream media themselves state that in 2013 the Liberal Party had 50,000 and Labor 43,000 and Greens 10,000 which by the 2016 Federal election results showed a further disinterest in the main parties and 22% voted for the minor parties.

So when the membership of our shooting associations which only 1 in 15 join (most remain hunting on rural property) are ‘mountains’ overlooking political parties of ‘mole hill’ proportion, why in a supposedly Constitutional Democracy are we dictated to by an elitist minority. Why do we have to resist and deal with politicians who seek to impose this NFA, National Firearm Agreement. We nor any representative from any shooting discipline, or association agreed, nor were we consulted. While our State and Federal Police Ministers met to unanimously vote to impose, not just a re categorisation of the Adler from A to B. All that was just part of the cover up ‘Flim flam’ creating the media ‘smoke and mirrors’ so it does not enrage the huge voting power of firearm owners.

Read if for yourself, its NOT just a Re Categorisation for the Adler Shotguns it has further impositions.

Find these in the Police Ministers, wish list.

AMMUNITION

54. Jurisdictions will legislate to allow the sale of ammunition only for those firearms for which the purchaser is licenced, and impose limits on the quantity of ammunition that may be purchased in a given period.

(This means that all sales will have to be recorded to whom and which licence another register, more public servants more taxes, more impositions)

55. On the purchase of ammunition, the relevant licence must be produced.

(d) the commercial transport of ammunition with firearms is prohibited

” This Agreement sets out minimum requirements in relation to the regulation of firearms. Nothing in this Agreement prevents jurisdictions from adopting additional, including more restrictive regulations.

Cat A

(c) Shotguns (other than semi-automatic, pump action or lever action)

Cat B

d) Lever action shotguns with a magazine capacity no greater than five rounds

Cat D.

(c) Semi-automatic, pump action and lever action shotguns with a magazine capacity greater than five rounds

20. Heirlooms

(a) Jurisdictions agree that where the owner of an heirloom firearm is unable to establish a genuine reason for possession of that firearm and/or does not qualify for a collector’s licence, jurisdictions may issue the heirloom owner with a special category of licence. The requirements of that heirloom licence must be that:

i. before the licence is issued, the owner provides sufficient proof of inheritance of the heirloom

ii. the licence apply only to a single gun, or a matched pair or set

iii. all heirloom firearms be rendered permanently inoperable

iv. the licence not authorise the discharge of the heirloom firearm or firearms in any circumstance

Collectors

i. the firearms which are the subject of the collection should be of or above a defined age

ii. firearms in a collection which have been manufactured after 1 January 1946 must be rendered inoperable (whether or not they are otherwise only required to be rendered temporarily inoperable according to paragraph 19(b))

iii. collectors may not possess ammunition for a collection firearm

iv. any attempt to restore firearms in the collection to usable condition should be regarded as a serious offence and subject to severe penalties

v. all operating firearms which are owned by the collector under separate licensing arrangements should be subject to the same level of regulation as any other operating firearm

vi. for the purposes of the collection of Category H firearms, genuine historical collectors must

1. be a member of a state or territory accredited historical firearm collectors society

2 .have their licence application endorsed by an accredited historical firearms collectors society

3. comply with strict storage requirements

4. display a commitment as a student of arms in order to collect or retain post-1946 handguns.

.43. Jurisdictions agree that the issuing of a permit must be subject to a waiting period of at least 28 days to enable appropriate checks to be made on licensees in order to ascertain whether circumstances have occurred since the issuing of the original licence which would render the licensee unsuitable to possess the firearm or which would render the licensee ineligible for that type of firearm.

45. Jurisdictions should consider imposing greater storage requirements where multiple firearms are kept on the same property.

Firearm Owners Association of Australia will be installing these 5 meter long banners on the Bruce Hyw in Gympie, if you can use one in your area they are $250. each

All shooters and all of their families and friends must VOTE AGAINST the National Firearm Agreement.
Contact your local State and Federal MP ask him to move a motion in parliament to oppose the NFA. His response will quickly inform you as to which side he is on. If he will not oppose it tell him you will vote for any other party that will. There are elections coming in Queensland and it has not been through the parliament so cannot be imposed yet. Seek them out, don’t be insulting just tell them that if they vote against law abiding firearm owners they won’t get your vote or you friends and families vote. If they vote for the NFA they will never get your vote in the future. Do not leave it to your association or your membership to a political party, it needs all shoulders to the wheel. Ten minutes on the phone now could save you years of aggravation in the future.

Where does all this anti freedom, anti human rights, anti firearm owners come from?

Please read thoroughly about George Soros and his establishment of the Open Society, and its relationship with Rebecca Peters, Anti Gun Coalition, and Save the ABC and George Sorus investment in Channel Nine, our major Banks and his investments into Australia’s political landscape. Please read Edition Owen Guns Bulletin Dec Special Christmas Edition 127, 2016

“Curiously though since Peters left, the shooting massacres, of the same style, lone gunman, have ceased! And private firearm ownership and number of firearms have doubled. Since Peters has returned to the USA, they have been subjected to the lone gunmen syndrome ever since.”

These days, this international conspiracy is not a theory it is a fact established and accepted by mainstream media such as the Weekend Australian article. “Influence Of George Sorus on Western Politics.

and

This coming battle at the Cross Roads against the latest NFA impositions on ammunition purchasers and Collectors firearm arms might not be the last battle, but it will the best chance we have to turn firearm legislation around and to create some sort of future for individual freedoms.

The Simple Things Could Mean the Difference Between Life and Death: A Real Life Scenario

Click here to view the original post.

It’s the simple things, the know-how and the skill to actually do it, that can mean the difference between life and death. This truth didn’t become more real than just recently when a father and son were lost in Australia and were thought to be dead. It was a crude shelter they built that kept them alive!

John Ward, 42 and his son Stephen, 13, decided to spend some time bonding and went on a day hike in the Tasmanian wilderness, Nine Mile Creek, Arthurs Plains to be exact. They mistakenly started a multi-day hike, thinking it was just a day hike trail.

“It nearly turned to tragedy but left them unscathed, apart from Mr Ward’s mild hypothermia. As well as being inexperienced, they were underprepared for the punishing conditions.

With snow falling on nearby mountains, their chances of survival were rated 0 to 5 percent by some searchers on Thursday morning, after a third night in the open.”
Source

Rescuer’s credited the father and son’s survival on one big factor, the ability to make a shelter.

“They’ve built a small shelter (from vegetation) … they’ve been able to protect themselves somewhat from the elements, from the heavy rain we had,” Sergeant Williams said. “That’s most likely saved their lives. They’ve had the smarts to build something like that and keep themselves out of the weather.”  Source

Some other things that helped in their survival and rescue were they were able to find a food depot that was left for other Bushwalkers. They were able to eat and maintain their energy throughout the three days they were exposed.

On the day they were found, they walked to higher ground, but left clues for searchers and even used “something reflect­ive to signal, as well as yelling.” Source

Real life survival stories help us understand how quickly a situation that we are in can go south. It also helps us understand or be reminded that there are some things that we can do and lessons to be learned so we don’t make the same mistakes.

Lessons to Learn

Kit Up! – Regardless if you are going on a day hike or not, if you are traveling somewhere, carry a survival kit with you! Putting some supplies inside a small backpack would have made a big difference in this scenario. A knife, a fire kit, some cordage, a means to filter water, some snacks and first aid supplies should be the minimum. You just never know! What would it have been like if this father and son had a fire kit and knew how to make a fire? They would have stayed a lot warmer and could have signaled rescuers more easily.

My suggestion – If you are not comfortable in your fire craft skills yet, please purchase some wet fire to go in your kit. Having this will help ensure you have a way to start a fire in harsh conditions. And, at the very minimum, make yourself a robust Altoids Tin Kit that you can slip in your pocket in a moments notice.  Check out these easy DIY fire starters. They are all very easy to make.

 

Get Familiar with the Lay of the Land Before You Go Out! – The Tasmanian Wilderness is beautiful but can be deadly. In researching this story, I came across another situation where a Forest guide tripped and broke her ankle. She spent two days out in the wilderness in cold temperatures. So if even guides can have a hard time out there, we should do everything we can to make sure our memories are all good ones. Source

The Tasmanian Wildlife Service has a nice PDF with plenty of info. (The pics alone are worth a peek) (Source) Many places that have hiking trails have something similar. But, you should also have a trail map and a compass and know how to use it! Just don’t go out without doing some research on where you’re going!

My suggestion – Watch this video on how to use a compass and practice in your neighborhood or local park. Teach your kids how to do this too!  Also, if this guide would have been carrying around a whistle, it would have helped others locate her more easily.  I purchased this whistle for my wife (for safety reasons). It is supposed to be the loudest made whistle available.

 

Get Some Book Knowledge?!? – Book knowledge will never replace actual skills! Let me say that again so you make sure you read it… Book knowledge will never replace actual skills! But, it is in reading and studying where we get ideas and a foundation for building on our current knowledge.

My suggestion – Create a list of survival skills you would like to learn: fire craft, filtering water, building a shelter, making cordage, etc… Then devote a few hours on the weekend to practicing one until you feel comfortable enough to mark it off your list. Also, purchase a copy of Mors Kochanski’s classic book, Bushcraft. This is a must have book if you are going to be spending time in the wilderness!

Let Other’s Know Where You’re Going – I understand…sometimes you just want to get away! But it is just being responsible to let others know where you are going. There are people that will be worried and scared that something terrible has happened to you. In the father and son situation, the wife was frantic. Could you imagine losing your husband and son at the same time? They might not have been able to let someone at the campsite know where they were going, but they could have left a message in their tent or even in their vehicle. Something like, “It’s Friday, 1 p.m., we are taking a day hiking trip down trail such and such. I agree that this would be a pain and something else to do, but you just never know! Even if you think you are experienced, it is a good practice.

For another example, in the above situation with the female trial guide, if she would have let other’s know where she was going or left a message, they would have found her so much more easily.

My suggestion – Get into the habit of letting those close to you know where you are going. It’s a hassle, but better safe than sorry!

Think Worst Case Scenario – Some will take this as pessimistic, but I don’t. I like to think about what is the worst case scenario, and then put things in place to help mitigate that possibility. It’s an attitude that doesn’t come from a point of fear, but instead a place of strength. You have the strength to change things, make adjustments, prepare before you are stuck in a terrible situation! If this father would have thought worst case scenario, he might have realized that they could get lost or even hurt on the trail. He could have then taken measures to mitigate that possibility, like kit-up and leave a message about their route on the trail!

My suggestion – If you are going to spend time in the deep wilderness or even on the ocean, get a Personal Beacon Device. These devices will connect with satellites and send your coordinates to rescuers. They are pricey for something you might not ever use ($260), but if you needed it…what is your life worth?

Concluding Thought

We get put in situations every single day that can go south. Just getting in your car and driving to the corner can change your life forever. And although spending some time outside is a goal for many of us, we should be eve more careful and wise about how we prepare and prep when we are out in the wilderness, whatever that looks like for you. Be smart and don’t add more grief to your life – yours or anyone you love!

Peace,

Sex attacker charged with assault of 12th Sydney victim. Government’s Ant-Self Defence Laws!

Click here to view the original post.

This is practically a daily occurrence now, in fact many rapes & attacks may go unreported. Here in NSW Australia it is illegal to carry anything with which to defende yourself, no sprays, no batons, no tasers, & of course no guns. The new 2017 National Firearms Agreement also states that firearms may NOT be used in defence of self, family or property in home invasions. We are left defenceless unless we can find something in the house with which to defend ourselves, and even then it may not be enough against superior odds.

Australian tiny home on wheels in outback

Australians are freeing themselves

Over a century ago, Australia’s 1911 census registered the average household as 4.5 persons, compared to the average today of 2.6, yet Australian homes have increased a staggering 40 per cent in size since 1984. The average family home has increased from 162 square metres to a whopping 227 square metres.  Just because they can.

Now news articles call on Australia’s middle classes to imagine owning a home under $100k, living completely unplugged, and moving it to a new location in retirement … being debt free in a flexible creative community, with an abundance of leisure time.

Its a big country with a tiny population and consequently, according to the WWF Living Planet Report of 2008, the Australian ecological footprint  on the earth is 2.8. That measure in layman’s terms is that they are using 2.8 times more resources than the earth can sustain.

As well as one of the largest building footprints in the world Australians send out an average of 18 tonnes of carbon per household.

This is all a backlash from the previous century where six or seven people packed in  a 2-bedroom house.

If those stats aren’t enough, Australians are also among the longest commuters in the world, above New York and LA.

Architecturally-designed eco homes, solar-panelled, moveable, self-sufficient, are the new status symbol. Time to relax and enjoy the family, or grow vegetables, instead of being gridlocked in a traffic jam.

It’s all possible. Most baby boomers have moved on from our gas guzzling cars of the 70s and 80s, to smaller, smarter economical ones.

Why wouldn’t they do that with homes when they are not sustainable?  Anyone scrolling through social media or Instagram lately, or watching lifestyle television shows, would be aware of eco or small homes popping up all over the place.

Some look like pods from Mars and others gypsy caravans on wheels, but the trend is being dictated by an awareness of a lower carbon footprint and a foreboding sense of our finite energy reserves.

I hazard a guess here, but nobody in Australia will be selling a 400-square metre home in 10 years’ time!

Darwin couple rescued from WA desert. What To Carry With You When Going Bush.

Click here to view the original post.
The Darwin couple were saved from WA’s Gibson Desert. Picture: AAP


Things/Items to carry with you at all times when going bush: (1) A good winch, preferably a hand operated winch. (2) A post hole shovel. This shovel can be used to dig yourself out by creating ramps from the bog. It can also be used to bury your spare wheel to use as an anchor for winching your vehicle out of the bog. (3) Plenty of drinking water. You can survive for up to 3 weeks without food if you are fit, but you can only survive 3 days without water. Hotter conditions and exertion will shorten the time you can survive without water. (4) Food. (5) A 4 litre container of engine oil. (6) Extra fuel. (7) A good medical kit. (8) Tool kit. (9) Wool blankets. My Father always carried a wool rug in his car. This was a carry-over from the days when our cars had no heaters. It is however still relevant, because deserts can get cold at night, and if it is winter it can get cold wherever you are in Australia. (10) A good tyre pump. We have an electric one. If purchasing an electric pump, make sure you get a good one. This is a classic case of “you get what you pay for”! (11) A “snap-strap”. Just in case someone else comes along and is able to pull you out. (12) A high lift jack. We call them “wallaby jacks”.

The Australian government doesn’t give a damn about the safety of the public. Gun control has nothing to do with public safety. We are not allowed to own, carry or use anything specifically meant for use in self defence or in the defence of others. Now the government has banned the use of firearms for defence. Australians are left defenceless unless we break the law. We should have the right to defend ourselves and our families in whatever way we consider necessary. Surely this is a human right?! The Australian government is denying us this right!

Sooner or later I think Australian citizens will have to ask themselves this question: Would you rather be judged by 12 or carried by 6 ?!

Robbed & Left To Die, He Survived 71 Days In The Desert On Frogs And Leeches

The road was rough and dusty, as usual. Two jackaroos, or Australian ranch hands, had been sent out from the nearest cattle station to perform their day’s labor. Their first order of business required them to head into some of the most desolate country that surrounded them.

In this part of the northern outback, that meant going into some of the most isolated pockets on the continent. Jackaroos like these were accustomed to living and working in the desert conditions, and their bronzed skin and weathered clothing testified to that. Still, even with an iron constitution, the trip to this remote area was a tough one, even by pickup. Not only would the road nearly jar a man’s teeth from his head, but as it was the end of the rainy season, the temperatures were beginning to heat up.

So the duo bounced along across the desolation. With nothing in sight, the pair talked and joked with each other to pass the time. As they slowly worked their way across the expanse, they spied something moving off in the distance. It was something unfamiliar, something odd and foreign to the regular scenery. They drove closer to investigate. As they drew closer, their curiosity only grew at the strange figure that rose and fell in the distance. Ever so slowly, the tattered pickup eased across the hot sand and unforgiving terrain of the Australian outback. As they approached, the two wide-eyed jackaroos looked at each other in disbelief. The mysterious figure they had found appeared to be a walking, stumbling and living skeleton. They had found a man by the name of Ricky Megee.

Get The Essential Secrets Of The Top Survivalists In The World!

The story of Ricky Megee is a captivating tale of survival in the Australian outback. Although the story is one fraught with hardship and the reality of death, it all began with a young man full of optimism.

Story continues below video

 

Ricky had just landed a new job and was driving along a barren north Australian highway when he came across a group of stranded travelers huddled around their vehicle on the side of the road. Not wanting to pass a stranded person on this desolate stretch of highway, Ricky slowed down and pulled over. The group needed help to get their car going. Megee allowed a few of them to hop in his car so they could hitch a ride to the next town, where they could get help. The men piled in, and then … blackness. That is the last thing he remembers.

He woke up, naked in the middle of the desert, baking in the hot sun. Confusion overtook him as he tried to understand what had happened. He sat down in the shade for hours, pondering his predicament. Nobody in sight. No roads. No houses. No water. Nothing. Just desert. What was he to do?

Not being one to let pessimism crowd his psyche, Megee walked across the desert, barefoot and naked, to find help. Each morning he told himself that today was the day he would find help. His efforts proved fruitless, though, and he traveled for days without finding anyone. His best option, he soon realized, was to find a good source of water and to stay next to it. Fortunately, the rainy season was just ending, and the desert held pockets of water. He committed himself to one such waterhole and constructed a makeshift shelter.

Robbed & Left To Die, He Survived 71 Days In The Desert On Frogs And LeechesAfter more than a week in isolation, Ricky was getting hungry. His stomach cramped, and his muscles ached from exhaustion. He knew he had to find food. Then, a lizard scurried past. Without even thinking, Megee lashed out and stunned the reptile, killing it instantly. With no fire, he improvised. He laid the lizard in the sun for a few hours and allowed it to dry. After that, he peeled the skin off and enjoyed his first bite to eat in the bush.

Over the course of his 71 days, Megee ate nearly everything he could find. Lizards, frogs, leeches, snakes, grasshoppers and caterpillars. Anything that slithered, crawled, scurried, or crept across the desert floor was fair game. In fact, he developed an affinity for certain kinds of frogs over others. Leeches, he said, are OK – but you must eat them quickly, otherwise they attach to the inside of your mouth.

Megee also ate plants. His rule for eating plants: If it tasted good, he ate it. This isn’t the safest way to test plants – in fact, it is dangerous — but he was fortunate. He mostly stumbled upon a few edible plants aboriginal people had used for millennia.

This Cool-To-The-Touch Lantern Provides 100,000 Hours Of Emergency Backup Lighting

But as much as he tried, and as much as he ate, Ricky was slowly losing his battle with the desert. He was gradually starving to death.

After a few weeks at his first shelter, Megee decided he needed to move on. He found a different waterhole and constructed another shelter, and settled in for what he thought might be his last few days on Earth. His strength was failing, and he knew setting across the desert was fruitless.

He began to battle with the thought that he was going to die in the outback. He even mounted a cross on his shelter, marking what he believed was going to be his grave. He simply hoped his corpse would be found for his family.

Robbed & Left To Die, He Survived 71 Days In The Desert On Frogs And LeechesIn his weakened and gaunt condition, Megee also felt the need to block the entrance to his shelter at night. Dingos had been prowling around his camp, and he got the impression they were sizing him up for a meal. Each night he crawled into his shelter, hoping to keep the wild dogs out just one more night.

So it went … for 71 days. By the time the jackaroos stumbled upon him, he was only a gaunt figure of his former self. Previously a strong-and-stout chap at 233 pounds, he weighed a skeletal 100 pounds when the ranch hands arrived. He was emaciated, weak and tired — but he was alive.

What can we learn from such an amazing story of survival? First, finding shelter, water and food — in that order – are the priority. Second, a positive outlook is essential. He remembered friends and family, and the thought of seeing them kept him going.

Ricky Megee was able to stay alive in one of the world’s most inhospitable environments for more than two months. Could we?

We need new laws that will give people like Gayle and other citizens a better chance of survival when crime is on the increase in Australia. Allowing two nurses to work together is a start, but it is not enough. We need legislation allowing law abiding Australian citizens to carry guns for self defence and if necessary for the defence of others, such as family members. In cases where people do not wish to carry a gun, then tasers and capsicum sprays should be a legal option.

Gun control explored at Clark University program.

Click here to view the original post.

Ms. Schwoerer said firearms were around in England since the late 13th century, but didn’t play an important role in society until the early 1500s, when Henry VIII ramped up production of guns with the hopes of proving his prowess on the battlefield by making war with France. He purchased artillery from elsewhere in Europe and encouraged gunmakers to set up shop in Britain. In addition to bolstering the military, the focus on production eventually put guns in the hands of people “up and down the social scale,” she said.

Guns helped people hunt more effectively, putting more protein on the table. There was an early interest in hunting for sport and protection, but early on, increased access to game meat was a major factor, she said. In a less practical sense, the gun was a novelty and carried with it an aura of power and authority.

States agree on gun control code

Hobart.

The states took a tentative step towards uniform gun laws yesterday when police ministers agreed to establish a national gun-control code on shooter licensing, mail-order sale, safety training and secure storage.

The Federal Government will also further restrict the importation of ammunition and machine pistols. But those attending the Australian Police Ministers Council yesterday left unresolved a national argument on the registration of all guns.

The federal Justice Minister, Mr Kerr, described yesterday’s code decision as “a step towards uniformity”.

He said quick responses to shooting tragedies in different states in recent years had led to ad hoc, potentially conflicting standards. Now ministers had set up a mechanism to take a more considered, long-term view.

Mr Kerr said the latest statistics showed that in 1993, only about 70 of Australia’s 526 firearm deaths involved violent crime.

The planned code was welcomed by Victoria’s Police Minister, Mr McNamara, as the most significant improvement in decades, and one that would remedy Victorian concerns about the effect of more relaxed laws in other states.

“It’s the hoons and lunatics that everyone wants to see firearms removed from,” he said. “We need to look at measures where we can more closely interact with mental health authorities so that we can identify persons who should be prohibited from obtaining firearms.”

The NSW Police Minister, Mr Paul Whelan, did not attend the meeting and is awaiting a briefing. Mr Kerr was confident that NSW and the other absent states, Queensland and the Northern Territory, would agree with the proposals.

While all jurisdictions now follow the principle that firearms be securely stored, the provision was variously interpreted. A Western Australian model is being proposed in which guns must be kept in steel cabinets with separate lockable ammunition storage.

The Victorian Justice Department is to coordinate the development of the code, which will be put before the next Police Ministers’ Council meeting in Tasmania in November.

The Commonwealth’s tightening of imports will outlaw a variety of ammunition, including military ammunition greater than 12.7mm, tracer bullets, armour-piercing and flechette ammunition.

Imports of standard hollow-point and soft-nosed ammunition will still be allowed, but a prohibition on military-style weapons will be extended to pistols configured as semi-automatic machineguns.

The president of the Sporting Shooters Association of Australia, Mr Ted Drane, said there were up to four million licensed shooters who ought to be consulted before changes were made to gun laws.

“We will never have national gun registration because that would mean that too many people (politicians) would lose their seats if they did in places like Queensland, New South Wales and Tasmania,” he said.

A spokesman said Victoria’s chief commissioner of police, Mr Neil Comrie, said he supported uniform gun laws.

THE PROPOSED GUN CONTROL CODE.

Recognition of licensing, perhaps with a categorisation system.

Control of mail order firearm sales.

Firearm safety training standards.

Pistol registration methods.

Secure storage standards.

Regulations governing types of ammunition are to be tightened.

Is the Australian Government a registered Corporation in the USA?!

Click here to view the original post.
Is the Australian Government a registered corporation? As I understand it, and I must admit that I am not in any way legally minded or very knowledgeable in regards to politics, the idea of a corporation is to make money for it’s investors. Now Australian citizens are not investors in a monetary sense IF the Australian Government is a corporation. So, we can’t earn any dividends from this corporation, but it is in the interest of the corporation NOT to spend money unless it can also make money.
Funding cuts to public services are obviously making money for someone, but certainly not us. Money spent of firearms registration comes out of our pockets, and again is not for our benefit. Money spent on gun control and gun confiscation is again payed for from our taxes, but again does not benefit us in any way or form. We work all our lives, and part of the deal was that we get a pension when we retire, but again, pensions have been cut and the retirement age extended! All this is putting money into the government coffers, but we the law abiding citizens are not receiving any benefits.
So, can anyone throw any light on this Australian government corporation thing? Is it fact or fiction? Is the Australian government a USA registered corporation?

Contamination in Australian water & foods.

(Click the web browser refresh button to see the latest reports. Date Formatting is Day/Month/Year – 11th March 2011 is 11.03.2011.) March 2015 – Tuna Contamination Report,
This incident reportedly happened six months ago, and unfortunately there was no available sample to test.
In late March I received this email from a contact who has a Geiger counter.
I have removed some information from the correspondence to protect the contacts anonymity.
“You have to watch your food like a hawk. My daughter had some tuna in oil….very small tin. I had been warning her. But dad is crazy. I found the tin going into the recycle, it still had a bit of oil in it. So, me being me, I got out my geiger counter and took a reading………it went ballistic.
It just keep climbing and climbing. I didn’t think it was going to stop……It stopped climbing when it hit 38K counts per minute….I didn’t know my bGeigie Nano meter went that high. The oil seemed OK, the tin seemed OK, but a tiny flake of leftover tuna the size of a match head was on the lip of the tin, that is what set it off. Don’t eat ANYTHING from the sea….anymore. That tuna was toxic radioactive nuclear waste, and not food.”
38K counts per minute would be around 1000 times background, using this model Geiger counter!
I sent this email to get more information on this very high detection.
Do you still have the sample?
If you are located in Australia, and still have the sample, I could test it, if you posted to me.
If you don’t have it, if you provide the information below, I may be able to source some here, and test it.
In what country was the tuna tinned?
In what country was it purchased?
Here is the reply to my email query.
This happened over 6 months ago.
I can only assume it was canned in the USA. tuna in oil. At that time I thought the reading was coming from the oil in the tin….I didn’t notice the flake that was on the outside top edge of the can. I got it stuck on my finger and washed it off. After this, is when I couldn’t get a reading from the tin or the oil again. I realized that the flake which was gone down the drain by then was the cause.
I thought my Geiger counter was malfunctioning at the time, which it never has before or since. The count was going up and it freaked out my son as we watched it climb. The highest reading I have ever gotten until then was 164 CPM off of a milled piece of pine, but at that time I was (and still am) learning how to use the geiger counter.
Comment:
A small number of tests on different brands of tinned tuna have been conducted here recently, and over the last couple years. There was nothing to report from these tests. This is only one community testing lab, and each test takes 24 hours, or more. A large variety of mainly Australian food products have been tested, so statistically the number of tinned tuna tests conducted here at this stage is very small.
It obvious more widespread community and government food testing needs to be conducted.
08.03.2014 – Proven: Pilliga groundwater contaminated by Santos CSG
Extracts:
Documents obtained by The Wilderness Society show that groundwater in the Pilliga has been contaminated by Santos CSG operations.
Uranium levels recorded in the groundwater as a result of CSG activities are at 20 times the Australian Drinking Water Guidelines.
The NSW EPA have confirmed the contamination event, but failed to act with any proper legal force, choosing to fine Santos only $1,500 dollars.
On Friday, EPA chief environmental regulator Mark Gifford confirmed the contamination was caused by water leaking from the pond and that lead, aluminium, arsenic, barium, boron, nickel and uranium had been detected in an aquifer at levels ”elevated when compared to livestock, irrigation and health guidelines’
Comment By Lock the Gate:
Uranium levels recorded in the groundwater as a result of CSG activities are at 20 times the Australian Drinking Water Guidelines. It is the nightmare that the communities of the north west dreaded, and we hope that the contamination is contained and does no harm. Groundwater is the lifeblood of towns and rural businesses and the worst fears of local farmers are being realised.

Australia/Ukraine nuclear deal — because Fukushima turned out so well !!!

— ‘A uranium sales deal between the country that fuelled Fukushima and the one that gave the world Chernobyl doesn’t sound like a good idea.’

~ Dave Sweeney

EARLIER this week, without much fanfare, the Federal Parliamentary Treaties Committee recommended the conditional ratification of the nuclear co-operation agreement with Ukraine — a plan initiated by Tony Abbott and advanced by Julie Bishop.

At first glance, a uranium sales deal between the country that fuelled Fukushima and the one that gave the world Chernobyl doesn’t sound like a good idea.

And all the subsequent glances confirm that it’s not.

There are serious and unresolved nuclear security, safety and governance concerns with the plan — putting more unstable nuclear material into a deeply politically unstable part of the world, that is experiencing active armed conflict, is force-feeding risk.

In a recent ABC report, the Ukrainian ambassador to Australia, Dr Mykola Kulinich, observed that the renewed violence in Ukraine could be a “precursor to something much worse”.

Time for global action on Earth’s great threat – Fukushima’s spreading ionising radiation

Federal Government says that the radioactive levels within it are “within safe limits”? Are we going to continue to label people like myself (of which there are many) as “conspiracy theorists” and uneducated alarmists who have been expressing concern over the Fukushima catastrophe since it occurred — people like me who know from objective observed and scientific fact that all is not well with what is going on (or not going on) at Fukushima?

No Profit From Rape & Violence. Please sign this petition.

The move to make RDVSA tender for its work is ideological and it has the potential to allow an organisation to profit from rape. 

On 13 February 1800RESPECT, the national telephone and online counselling service for women, men and children experiencing domestic or sexual violence, was advertised for tender.

Since its inception, 1800RESPECT has been provided by specialist domestic violence and sexual assault trauma counsellors, employed by the Rape and Domestic Violence Services Australia (RDVSA).

RDVSA has been told it must tender for this work and, despite the exceptional support it provides, is unlikely to be successful without widespread community support.

Why does RDVSA have to compete with ‘the market’ to provide life-saving support to victims and survivors of domestic and sexual violence? 

RDVSA is a union workplace with almost all of its 100 specialist counsellors and support staff members of the Australian Services Union.

RDVSA is a feminist organisation which has been critical of this Federal Government’s approach to addressing domestic violence.

It’s not about money: in 2015 RDVSA sought an additional $2 million from the Federal Government to fund additional specialist counsellors and telephone hardware that would allow them to answer all calls- instead the Government gave $5 million to corporation Medibank Health Services (MHS) to provide a ‘triage service’ as part of 1800RESPECT.

RDVSA openly opposed this move by the Federal Government, that more specialist counsellors not a call centre was needed to support those experiencing domestic and sexual violence.

No one should be able to profit the trauma of those experiencing domestic and sexual violence.
