Climate Change Insurgent: Tony Abbott’s Crusade – » The Australian Independent Media Network

He is the inimitable, true political ugliness, the bad boy with a mistimed punch. While not quite professorial in his lunacy (that honour will have to go to Pauline Hanson of One Nation, whose sincere bigotry remains pungent), he aspires to it with a greater sense of reason. This Exocet missile of Australian politics continues…

Abbott risks looking like a bitter wrecker

Mr Turnbull and Mr Abbott and their colleagues rightly promote the Liberal Party as a broad church, but there is a difference between what Mr Abbott and those few others are doing and what constitutes a constructive contribution to policy debate.

Putin’s & Russian Contribution vs Abbott’s & Australian Contribution to Ebola War. Shirtfront Abbott


Ebola Virus Disease: A potential global catastrophe. 53791.jpeg

While there is no room for complacency, by pulling together and fighting side by side, the international community can beat this serious threat. Perhaps Ebola Virus Disease has taught us all a lesson.

Putin’s contribution

The Russian Federation has been present fighting this pandemic at all levels. President Vladimir Putin has met the WHO Director-General Margaret Chan and has pledged full support. A medical team of Russian virologists, epidemiologists and bacteriologists is in the field in the Republic of Guinea, to date 19 million USD has been provided, alongside humanitarian aid. Russia is ready to send large numbers of doses of the anti-viral drug Triazavirin, which is effective in 70 to 90% of cases of infections with 15 strains of Influenza, including A H1N1 (Swine Flu) and H5N1 (Avian flu), at any stage of the infection.

Russia is also working on a vaccine and is ready to begin trials on primates. After this the human trials will begin and it may be ready for massive operations by Summer 2015.

Abbott’s contribution




When the Labour government made moves to be elected to the United Nations Security Council the coalition derided them for their efforts. Shadow Foreign Affairs Minister, Julie Bishop describing it as ‘extravagant’ and distracting ‘from core foreign policy interests’. Critics  produced a range of arguments, which were wheeled out by the Opposition in Parliament.
Australian national interest is not confined but interrelated — defence, human rights and trade all intersect globally. Transnational issues such as people movement and refugee settlement cannot be managed effectively without global coordination and discussion. So the ‘Australia within it’s region’ mindset is both limiting and outdated.It was the Gillard government  argued that a seat at the UN Security Council would allow the Australian community via the Australian Government to speak out more clearly on issues of moment, and it would allow Australian diplomats to keep their fingers on the pulse of important discussions affecting global diplomatic norms and also Australia’s regional security.What’s more, it would provide Australians with the motivation to think through more clearly and consistently the kinds of values we wish as a nation to inform our engagement on the world stage.
Tony Abbott and Julie Bishop should be grateful now for the position  the current  immense tradjedy of MH17’s downing has placed them in. Slap bang in the center of world affairs. A position that has changed the face of Australia’s media and taken the attention away from the realities of their governments current  shit political policies. They are now the beacons the represenatives of world values.
Abbott hates the UN interference in our national interest neocons argue it’s a dead weight around the necks of governments and their regions. World Heritage is a load of crap the Great Barrier Reef belongs to us as does the Old Growth Tasmanian Forrest. The UN are just interfering do-gooders. Shit Human Rights Scott Morrisson is the Minister in charge and the UN can take a running jump as far as asylum seekers are concerned. Close down the the UN it’s almost bankrupt, ineffective and interfering in national progress and internal decisions.
It’s this the organization, the UN and Australia’s position on the Security Council that is allowing Abbott to bellow. Be it all for a good cause but after the noise calms down let’s not forget that Hockey and Abbott would not have spent the money to be at the table and would prefer to be non members lurking in the shadows.


This governments cry for deregulation of the financial industry is going to achieve exactly what multi nationals want and what 1%ers would like a gold rush of opportunity but only for those at the top.
Abbott’s coalition are either fully aware of what they are doing or under the misguided belief in a trickle down effect that will benefit all. Bullshit there’s more generosity at the the middle and lower end of the social hierachy than there is at the top.

 Immigration regulations have  been increased to such that assylum seekers have been disappeared they no longer exist.  Scott Morrison has no information on anything, his dept  employs 90 spin doctors, media managers who don’t only watch his words but scrutinizes ours throughout the social media. Comic to the extreme we have a bigger  Immigration Dept doing more things about nothing. Transparacy is not required because there’s nothing to be transparant about, just ask a spin doc…….spokesperson.
Deregulation however is only one side of the coin. More regulation is the other. Kevin Andrews wants more Welfare. He wants want’s to micro-manage what individual recipients  recieve  and what they can and can’t spend  with their payments . The very nature of this  magnified  state control starts to smack of  the most extreme facism.
 Corporate trustees are given virtual carte blanche to administer, invest and disburse the money in charitable trusts, and critics say they charge whatever fees they deem appropriate. Yet as calls mount for greater regulation of the sector, the government is moving to axe the watchdog. Sarah Dingle
 Yep the Charity Watchdog is to be axed and the industry to self regulate. Money left in wills for charities is a ‘rivers of gold’ situation for corporate trustees, who are entitled to administer the money in perpetuity. Corporate trustees administering a fund for the Childrens Hospital have diminished it’s capital over the past 5 years by about $20mill  in those 5 years the Corporate trustee took $2mill in fees. By comparison, the Children Hospital’s own self managed foundation managed to grow it’s  capital by 10 per cent and distribute $80 million to the hospital in the same timeframe. 90% of these corporate trustees have $3.5bill are under the sole management.  Currently they can be the trustee, the investor, the administrator and the disburser of the funds, and they don’t have to show that all those charges are fair and reasonable,’’Rivers of Gold”. Andrews wants to axe the ACNC and handball the fee gouging issues to the States. Charities Commissioner Susan Pascoe says State regulation is non existing. In WA there is no cap on fees that can be charged. These Corporate trustees apply the same fee structures to the trusts of disabled, mentally impaired  across the board. Andrews isn’t saving money he’s handing the problem over to the states were no protective structures exist.

 The Dept of Trade and Froreign Affaire is in secret  TPP trade negotiation revealed by WIKI leaks which demand deregulation to open up the freer market  for Multinational corporations . Yes but not for  the interests of all of us. Australian bank regulations which saved us from the GFC pain that Europe & the US experienced  are going to be loosened up. It was deregulation of the financial markets that caused the GFC in the first place. This government wants to remove our safety net & say we are “open for business”. The flip side is that we the consumers are to be effected by the new TPP agreements . We will pay more for drugs and medicines, movies, computer games and software, IT  and be placed under surveillance as part of a US-led crackdown on internet piracy.  ”One could see the TPP as a Christmas wish list for major corporations, enriching them and their investors but of no  help those in the middle, let alone those at the bottom. Goods will become more expensive, pharmaceuticals, IT, software, entertainment, food packaging, among other things will go up. The belief that economic growth is the key to benefit for all is a myth. This governments ear is only open to those guaranteed to win putting the bulk of the population at greater risk. Those 10% at the top will make more money and be  overcompensated for the price rises and the other 90%  gouged.
