I STAND WITH THE DUTCH FARMERS

There is no greater power in the world than the power of the people when they stand together to fight for their rights and freedom.

We saw it in Canada in January and we are seeing it again today in Europe, where Dutch farmers are refusing to back down.

Their brave stand against the forces of globalist tyranny has been taken up by hundreds of thousands of farmers, fishers and truckers across Europe.

The protests have provoked a mass outpouring of sympathy and support from the public, who are cheering the farmers on despite shameful attempts to smear them by the media.

This is the greatest mass movement for freedom the Netherlands has ever seen!

I stand with the Dutch farmers.  Their fight is our fight!

THE WORLDWIDE ASSAULT ON TRADITIONAL FARMING AND AGRICULTURE HAS OFFICIALLY BEGUN!

I hope all Queensland farmers are taking note of what is going on in The Netherlands right now.

For days there has been a complete mainstream media blackout on the story, but finally news of the extraordinary revolt by Dutch farmers over the country’s new ‘Net Zero’ farming laws emerged yesterday.

The new regulations aims at slashing nitrogen oxide emissions 50 to 95 percent, depending on the province, by 2030.

To comply with the new limits, Dutch farmers will be forced to cull (kill) 30 per cent of their livestock.

An estimated 5,000 farms will be wiped out immediately, especially those near Holland’s ‘protected areas’, where the levels have been reduced a staggering 95 percent.

“The honest message … is that not all farmers can continue their business,” the Dutch Government said smugly when announcing the new laws.

This is beyond stupidity.

The idea that Dutch farmers are producing so much nitrogen, a gas that has NO EFFECT on global climate, that a third of the country’s farms must be shut down is absolutely insane.

So insane, in fact, that fifty thousand tractor-driving, furious Dutch farmers have brought the country to its knees over it.

It’s now impossible to cross the border with Germany because farmers, truckers and other allied workers have blocked all the highways with tractors, trucks, mounds of manure and hay bales.

Giant tractor chains, meanwhile, are blocking access to the country’s 20 food distribution centres, while fishermen, sympathetic to the protest, have blocked most of its ports.

The Dutch media are of course trying to paint the farmers as “far right-wing extremists” and “domestic terrorists”, but so far their words are falling on deaf ears.

The Dutch people are backing the farmers and their protest to the hilt!

The farmers say they have blocked highways, ports and supermarket distribution centres, to make the point that without farmers, no one eats.

They aren’t kidding either.

The Netherlands is the world’s second biggest agricultural exporter in the world and the largest meat exporter in Europe.

That means ALL of Europe will suffer.  Food shortages alone will be crippling.

Any Australian who thinks this doesn’t affect them are in for a shock when similar measures are imposed here – and believe me, they will be!

Too many people have allowed their heads to be filled with green fairy tales when it comes to this “transition” to ‘net zero’.

Most have no idea of the enormous costs and pain involved.

At a bare minimum, it is going to mean less farms, less livestock and a lot less food!

LET’S START A REVOLUTION ….

A number of countries worldwide, are saying their population could be facing severe food shortages and widespread hunger by the end of 2022.

Others are slapping export bans on fertilisers, fuel and food staples like wheat, potatoes and edible oil – all of which are in critically short supply.

In just the last few hours, there are reports of mass food recalls of peanut butter and hazelnut truffles in the US, along with many other foods containing those products.

Earlier today, the FDA also issued a massive recall of Smithfield’s bacon and around 185,610 pounds of RTE bacon – that’s over 90 tons of bacon products.

These moves follow a mass poultry cull and a rash of fires and explosions that have destroyed food processing plants and storage facilities across the US.

Even mainstream news outlets like Fox have started asking questions about the “odd string of coincidences” that have helped cripple the nation’s food supply.

As Tucker Carlson pointed out, over the past 6 months, there have been 17 incidents of fires and explosions, including two plane crashes – one into a  food processing plant and the other, a food storage facility.

Of course, mainstream news outlets like CNN have trotted out a conga-line of “experts” to explain to the silly ‘deplorables’ how all these were just “random occurrences”.

Whatever.  The fact remains that the world’s food situation is starting to look pretty dire.

I think it’s time the people started creating their own distributed food systems – so that we are not 100% reliant on those holding centralised control over our access to food.

Here in Queensland, we live in one of the most fertile regions in the country.  Absolutely anyone can grow anything.

I’ve already started mine.

Basil, coriander, garlic, parsley, chives, tomato, beans, beetroot, cabbage, cauliflower, potato, celery, cucumber, melons, lettuce, pumpkin and zucchini.

That’s just for starters.

We also need community gardens, aquaponics, rabbits, goats, chickens, ducks, quail, mushrooms, soil husbandry, dry farming and urban coops.

State and local authorities need to remove any restrictive regulations around home or community grown food production, to allow this to happen.

Churchill called them ‘Victory Gardens’.

I’m just saying, ‘Let’s Trust the Plant!

‘ROGUE STATE’ LEADS THE WAY ON DIGITAL ID LINKED TO FOOD RATIONING

Iran, notorious for silencing dissidents and persecuting minorities, has rolled out a new rule linking the ability to buy food and fuel, to the possession of a Biometric Digital ID card.

The system uploads iris scans, DNA/genomics, biometrics, and information on a citizen’s vaccine status, medical history and religious practice.

A special App, created by Google and Apple (thanks guys!) is downloaded and connects each user to the centralised government database.

The system is virtually identical to the one being pushed in Australia and which will no doubt be rammed through by whoever wins tomorrow’s election.

In Iran, the Biometric Digital ID has greatly expanded the government’s ability to keep tabs on citizens, target minorities and crush dissent.

This week, things were taken up a notch with the government using the food/fuel crisis to force even more of its citizens onto the Digital ID surveillance grid.

It did so by rolling out all the same ‘coercive control’ nudge tactics which have proved so popular with governments here in Australia.

The “lever” authorities chose to use, were the substantial food and fuel subsidies it provides  Iranians to reduce their ‘cost of living’ expenses.

Iranians are now being told that in order to buy bread/fuel at the reduced prices, they must present a Biometric Digital ID card.

Anyone without such a card can still purchase the items, but only at the sky-high ‘market price’.

The rule is currently only for bread and fuel, but officials say this will shortly be expanded to include foods like chicken and vegetable oil.

With half the Iranian population living below the poverty line, most won’t survive without the subsidies, particularly with Iran’s inflation running at 40-50 percent.

Mass protests have broken out in response which are being inaccurately reported by the world’s press.

The protests are depicted as nothing more than unruly ‘food riots’, with no mention of the new Biometric Digital ID rules.

Iran’s authorities are now shutting down internet service across whole regions to quell the protests.

It is odd how countries like Iran have moved in such perfect ‘lockstep’ with the World Economic Forum’s ‘Reset’ Agenda.

For 2 years, they have obediently rolled out all the same mass testing, QR codes, mandates and lockdowns as other countries.

Now they are trotting out the same WEF-inspired plans for CBDCs and mandatory Digital IDs.

Makes you wonder just how much of a ‘Rogue State’ Iran really is.

TWO CAPE YORK CATTLE STATIONS SNAPPED UP BY QUEENSLAND’S ‘GREEN GRABBING’ GOVERNMENT

The Queensland Government’s recent purchase of two existing pastoral leases north of Weipa, amounting to nearly 325,932 hectares of agricultural land, has led to calls for the buying program in Cape York to “stop”.

Many graziers say they are becoming fearful for the future of the cattle industry up North, as more and more large pastoral properties are being bought up by the Government.

Since 2007, the Queensland Government has bought more than a dozen pastoral properties in Cape York, including Kalinga, Crosbie, Strathmay, Killarney, Dixie and Wulpan Stations.

Bertiehaugh Station was bought by the Federal Government and renamed the Steve Irwin Wildlife Reserve.

All these stations have been permanently removed from Australia’s agricultural lands network and converted into national parks or wildlife reserves.

Now Bramwell and Richardson Stations have joined the list – the northern-most cattle enterprise in Queensland.

The buy-ups are impacting neighbouring stations and communities, as more money is ripped from town economies, along with countless jobs.

Many are suspicious that the government may be buying up land to gain carbon credits.  Bramwell Station, for example, came with a “carbon farming deal” in place.

Grazier Emma Jackson, who runs nearby Wolverton Station in Cape York, said the sale of Bramwell Station was very troubling.

“If the cattle stations continue to close down in Cape York, it will be … another nail in the coffin for the grazing industry” she told the Brisbane Times recently.

“The state government might buy the land, but they don’t invest money into it.  It’s not feasible or possible for them to manage it”.

“When you’re producing on the land, you know where every weed is, you do your fire management, you make a dollar and it goes straight back into the land”.

“There’s this perception that when you’re working the land in cattle or horticulture, you’re not working with the land, that you’re not doing the right thing and that’s simply not correct.”

Local graziers and communities are not being consulted or given a say over the government ‘buy-ups’.

While questions around the vital issue of our ‘food security’ or the impact on Queensland’s agricultural sector overall, go unanswered.

Bear in mind that this is productive farmland we are talking about – land that food producers could make good use of.

Land that is now lost to Queensland agriculture forever.

WORLD TOLD TO ‘BRACE FOR FOOD RATIONING’: MILLIONS WILL STARVE

There are so many bad things going on in the world right now, that it is getting harder and harder to keep up.
However, the wholesale destruction of the world’s food supply is something nobody should ignore.
While Australia and other wealthy countries will see shortages of some items and skyrocketing prices for others, many of the world’s poorer nations won’t be so lucky with hundreds of millions of people facing severe hunger in 2022.
The situation was bad enough with skyrocketing fertiliser, fuel and shipping costs, but recent events in the Ukraine have made everything a hell of a lot worse.
Russia and Ukraine alone account for roughly 30 per cent of global wheat and barley exports, while 40% of the world’s fertilisers are supplied by Belarus and Russia.
The sanctions on Russia and Belarus have therefore removed key ingredients from the world’s food supply, causing wheat and other grain prices, to absolutely explode.
Grain-rich countries like Moldova and Hungary, have put bans on the export of grains and fertilisers as they desperately move to hold on to their own supplies.
Countries like Egypt, Turkey and Lebanon, who rely exclusively on Ukraine-Russia-Belarus for supplies, are now scrambling to buy whatever they can on the grain market.
EU farmers have called for a suspension of Europe’s ‘Green New Deal’ farming restrictions, with no success.
Germany’s Agriculture Minister told farmers the restrictions, which prevent them from cultivating all their farmland or using more than 50% fertilisers/pesticides – are staying.
German farmers are furious, many accusing the Minister of “murder”.
As one said in a video that went viral:
“In the midst of this catastrophe, this green eco-fanaticism – is putting ecological madness before human lives”.
This is disgraceful.
You can’t just eliminate 40% of the world’s grains, from the Black Sea region, and expect innocent people not to suffer.
In the past, sanctions were carefully targeted. You never just cut off part of the world’s food supply like this.
It’s as though they just want to burn the whole system down in order to replace it with the new ‘Reset’ model they have planned.
Here in Australia, governments have done nothing to warn its citizens of the coming food crisis, or formulate contingency plans.
This means we all need to make our own, starting with emergency food gardens, to insulate our family and community as much as possible.
Everyone should also stock up on flour, rice, barley and other grains.
If you wait till you’ve run out, they may not be there.

THIS IS ABOUT “LAND, MONEY AND RESOURCE CONTROL”, NOT ‘SAVING’ THE ENVIRONMENT

Queensland Environment Minister, Meaghan Scanlon, recently announced the government’s purchase of 35,300 hectares west of Townsville, to be added to Queensland’s ‘Protected Area’ estate.

‘Lakes Station’, is “a massive and stunningly beautiful grazing property” in North Queensland that was owned by the same family for generations.

Scanlon said she will be making a lot more purchases in the region this year, as part of the government’s efforts to ‘protect’ more than 17 percent of Queensland by 2030.

In 2020, the Government set aside $28 million to expand the State’s ‘protected areas’ and today, more than 14 million hectares across Queensland are protected in some way.

Last year, around 33,621 hectares of high value ‘conservation’ land was added to Queensland’s protected area network.

Altogether, the network currently ‘protects’ an area more than twice the size of Tasmania.

Most of this land was once fertile farming and agricultural land.

THESE LANDS HAVE NOW BEEN PUT OFF LIMITS TO ANY PRODUCTIVE USE, PERMANENTLY. 

How much the government paid for the property has not been disclosed, although it was revealed that $1.829 million came from the Wyss Foundation, set up by US billionaire Hansjorg Wyss.

Wyss is the former CEO of Synthes, a medical device manufacturer, specialising in medical implants and biomaterials.

In 2009, Synthes was charged with 52 felony for illegally experimenting on patients, three of whom died.

Wyss sold the company to Johnson & Johnson in 2012 for $20.2 billion and now focusses on his chain of billion dollar Foundations and Medical Institutes.

Interestingly, the Wyss Centre in Switzerland is developing a fully implantable brain-computer interface that directly detects brain signals and then wirelessly transmits them to a computer for decoding.

Wyss and fellow billionaires, Bezos and Bloomberg, have committed $5.5 billion to buying up ‘high value’ land worldwide.

Wyss alone has bought up 27 million acres of farming properties in the US and turned them into conservation areas.

In 2018 he bought 200,000 acres of farmland in Australia’s Murray Darling Basin to create a “protected zone”.

Clearly, the biggest threat the environment faces today, comes not from the people who live there, but from all these rich billionaires and their ‘dark money’ Foundations, looking to swoop in and buy up all the rights to it – financialising nature for profit and control.

As the head of Survival International said:

“Let’s not be fooled by the hype from the ‘conservation’ NGOs, UN and public-private funders.  This has nothing to do with climate change or protecting biodiversity – in fact it will only make them worse”.

“THIS IS ABOUT MONEY, LAND AND RESOURCE CONTROL AND AN ALL-OUT ASSAULT ON HUMAN DIVERSITY”.  

“THIS PLANNED DISPOSSESSION OF HUNDREDS OF MILLIONS OF PEOPLE RISKS ERADICATING HUMAN DIVERSITY AND SELF-SUFFICIENCY”.

Stephen Andrew statement on Segregation in Queensland

Those who believe that the “segregation” of legally designated outgroups in Australia, could NEVER happen, clearly know nothing of history. Because it already has – on a number of occasions in fact. Australian South Sea Islanders were subjected to great suffering, hardship and adversity for most of the twentieth century, due to discriminatory laws passed on the State and Federal level.
The laws relegated them to ‘second class’ status and legally prevented them from enjoying any of the same rights and freedoms as other Australians. In 1902, they became the only victims of a mass deportation order in Australia’s history. Between 1904 and 1909, almost 10,000 of them were torn from their homes and families and forcibly deported to islands few could remember. Those who remained, did so on sufferance, and ongoing discrimination by law.
Until 1967 they were banned from:
1. Voting;
2. Buying alcohol;
3. Taking out loans;
4. Opening a savings account;
5. Buying or renting a house;
6. Leasing a business; or
7. Owning land.
Their movements were restricted and many were forced to live in shanties and camps erected in the bush, or along riverbanks. Then there were the regular ‘scare’ stories in the press, linking ‘Kanakas’ to outbreaks of disease and influenza. It was a time when anyone with a black skin was considered as less than human, and few people spoke out on their behalf.
Worst of all, they were legally prevented from working in agriculture, the only industry they knew. If they tried to work elsewhere, trade unions picketed the businesses that employed them. Any farmers who took pity on them and gave them labouring or gardening work, they were reported to authorities and prosecuted.
Long after ‘Kanakas’ ceased to be a threat to white workers, unions refused their union membership applications, preventing them from being employed in jobs covered by industrial awards. It wasn’t until 1964, that the prohibition of ‘black’ labour in the agricultural industry was finally abolished.
In 1991, the Call for Recognition reported on the plight of the South Sea Islanders, and recommended special measures be introduced to help right some of the many wrongs of the past. To this day, the recommendations contained in this report have not been actioned by any government in Australia, State or Federal.
Stephen Andrew statement on supply chains
The world’s supply chains are imploding and the global elites couldn’t be happier. The global shipping industry is in chaos, beset on all sides by government restrictions and regulations, surging fuel costs, ongoing labour change issues, and costly port delays. The result has been a stratospheric rise in freight rates.
The cost of shipping a container on popular trading routes like the one between China and Europe has soared 840%, with the cost of containers from China to the US jumping from $US1,500 to $US25,000.
In Australia, shipping companies are charging $8,000 per container for shipping to Australia, against $1,370 a year ago.
As one industry forum said “shippers are facing a “meltdown” with rates in the stratosphere, slots up for auction and service performance in the trash”.
“What none of the industry metrics show are the huge numbers of shipments not being moved – boxes left on the quay, stacked in the terminal or stockpiled in export warehouses awaiting a slot”.
Last month, the carrier ONE announced a string of port omissions for Sydney, Brisbane and Melbourne, citing the need for schedule recovery, and costly port delays. Australian meat exporters are reporting 10 day delays to secure containers for their shipments. Australian grain farmers are even worse off, with many failing to meet contractual obligations, due to schedules being regularly cancelled by shipping lines.
According to the F&TA, “three of our members collectively paid in excess of $US117,000 in contract breaches in the past three months alone … because low-paying cargo, such as grain, is getting bumped-off vessels at transhipment ports for higher-paying priority cargo”.
There is no incentive for the shipping carriers to move grain which could lead to bottlenecks next harvest, with farmers potentially having no way to unload grain. The flow-on effect means Australian retailers are waiting months for stock to arrive.
Key stock is down more than 40%, and what they can get, is costing them an absolute fortune in shipping rates. All these extra costs are being passed down the line with the price of food, clothing, shoes, toys and computers all rising steadily. Things are much worse across Europe and the US, with widespread reports of rampant inflation, empty store shelves and crippling fuel and food shortages.
Many ‘experts’, however, seem almost gleeful at this wholesale destruction of the world’s supply chain. Instead of reassuring the public they will fix it, they are saying empty shop shelves and shortages are now “permanent” – all part of the ‘New Normal’.
The Food and Drink Federation boss told a UK industry event last week, that the days of people being able to “find any product they want on the shelves” are gone. “That’s over. And I don’t think it’s coming back”. From now on, he said, people must simply learn to ‘prioritise’ – ‘rationing’?
Our broken supply chains are starting to sound more and more like a ‘managed demolition’ by our self-appointed ‘chosen ones’, as they frogmarch humanity down the ‘Great Reset’ Road to a greener, more sustainable future.

Stephen Andrew statement on commercial freedoms

Which seemingly normal practices, commercial freedoms are going to be written off today? It seems that the retail sale of firearms is ok but you cannot ship them any more if your involvement is with retail customers.
Given the fact we have strict compliance criteria one would think shipping dealer to dealer would be acceptable but alas, they are involved in retail so it’s a no go zone either but you can ship from wholesalers to dealerships? Dealerships are retail, thus the supply and parts chain is broken. What if you ship other goods, nope still not allowed because you retail firearms.
Are you actually seeing this?
I lost freight and finance in 2 Months. They are shutting finance and international transfers down as well. So commerce and trading weapons is now being treated as “too risky” to continue to do business with, what’s next; red meat, cows milk, fossil fuels or parts for farm equipment?
The silent war war on certain things seem to be alive and well, where is it coming from, nobody seems to know, they just know your account is closed as of the end of the month.
The 64 Million $$ question. ..what part of our seemingly normal society, trade or practices will be the next “Shot Duck”?
Incrementalism at its finest, coming to everything you hold dear very soon.
