Invasion Of The Giant Mutant Goldfish!

No, not a B-Grade 50s monster movie: This is for real!

Australian giant goldfish

Dumped pet goldfish have been found in Australian estuaries, prompting fears the fish could make their way into connected river systems and kill off native species.
Last year, scientists from the same university discovered giant, football-sized goldfish weighing more than two kilograms stalking the waterways.
Now new research has revealed the invasive species are living in salt water, which means they can travel between river systems and colonise more ecosystems.
Murdoch University’s Dr James Tweedley and team discovered the goldfish while conducting fish surveys in Vasse and Wonnerup estuaries, in Western Australia’s South West.
He said he was surprised one day in 2012 that his team started pulling up goldfish in their nets.
The academic has now analysed the research from that expedition, and tests measuring the salinity-resilience of the species revealed surprising results.

“Typically goldfish are a species that live in freshwater, like you get from your tap, but we were finding them in an estuary that has salty water,” he said.
“To be an introduced species, you really have to be able to adapt to an environment you’re thrown in, and goldfish have colonised the world. They’re native from China but they live in every continent except for Antarctica.
“It’s their plastic biological traits — that they can adapt to anything — that makes them so successful.”
He said tests revealed that rather than adapting to the salt levels in the estuary, goldfish may always have had some natural resistance to salinity.
“We tested the salinity tolerance of the goldfish from the Vasse estuary, and compared them to some goldfish we purchased from a pet store, and we found they were the same,” he said.
Dr Tweedley said the fish owners were releasing them into rivers in the belief it was the kindest way to dispose of unwanted pets, but once released they posed a threat to native species and the ecosystem of the rivers.
“They have a big mouth, and what they do is they feed on the bottom of the water, they scoop the sediment up, and as that sediment comes up it brings with it nutrients, which can fuel algal blooms.
“They are also carnivorous, and they predate on the eggs of our small native fish species, and some of our frogs too.”
He is urging people to either return their unwanted pets to the store, give them to a friend, or dispose of them humanely by placing them in very cold water and then putting them in the freezer, which slows their metabolism and eventually causes death.

Pauline Hanson: ‘I felt terrible wearing the burqa’

By Natalie Cornish

One Nation leader, Pauline Hanson has defended wearing the burqa in parliament yesterday saying she “did it to prove a point” about national security and felt “terrible” but not nervous peering out at the chamber from inside.
Hanson has ignited a heated and divisive debate about religious freedom after she donned the full veil during question time.
The Queensland senator entered parliament in the full black veil, and took her seat as fellow politicians groaned and shook their heads in disbelief.
She then rose to her feet and removed the garment with an arrogant smirk.
Attorney-General George Brandis instantly condemned her actions. His emotional speech, in which he called Hanson out for “ridiculing” Muslims and branded her actions “appalling” was applauded both in the house and on social media.
Now, she’s spoken to Karl Stefanovic on the TODAY show about the stunt saying she wasn’t proud of her actions but “did it to prove a point” about national security and “social cohesion”.
“My private member’s bill that I moved on the floor later in the day was all about banning the burqa in Australia based on national security, based on the fact I’m wanting social cohesion. This is the case in many countries around the world.”
Brandis had hit back at Hanson’s claims in the chamber saying: “I can tell you, Senator Hanson, that it has been the advice of each director-general of security with whom I have worked and each commissioner of the Australian Federal Police with whom I have worked that it is vital for their intelligence and law enforcement work that they work co-operatively with the Muslim community, and to ridicule that community, to drive it into a corner, to mock its religious garments is an appalling thing to do.”

Blue Vs. Red: NZ Opposition Accused Of Trying To “Bring Down” Australian Government!

In a truly bizarre bit of news, a minor political spat has erupted into claims of major political sabotage down-under!

It all boils down to Blue Team Vs. Red Team:


Firstly; Should the Aussie Government really be making these claims a few weeks out from a New Zealand election? Surely this could be construed as interference in the electoral process?

Secondly; Turnbull’s government and NZ’s National Government (Led by Bill English) are both on the “Blue Team” (International Democratic Union) whereas Labour (led by Jacinta Ardern) are NZ’s “Red Team” (Progressive Alliance). So of course the Aussie “Blues” don’t want the NZ “Reds” in power.

These two opposing teams are like Mcd’s and BK: A franchise in every country, with minor local differences (France uses the Metric System, so they call the “Quarter Pounder” the “Royal With Cheese”, as Pulp Fiction fans will know!) but they’re all guaranteed to serve the same generic shit nevertheless. Ya want fries with that?

Anyone who thinks these local governments are in any way independent and unbiased, take a look at the global map from IDU’s own website, complete with  ex NZ PM John Key’s infamous “Smiling Assassin” face in the header:

Red team Blue Team

This has all been triggered, of course, by NZ Labour’s spectacular last-minute surge in popularity thanks to the unleashing of “Jacindamania”, making Labour a serious threat to National for the first time in a long time.

Jacinda Ardern

It’s going to be very interesting few weeks in NZ politics and Australian Governmental reactions!

Australia threatens NZ Labour Party over citizenship scandal

Julie Bishop

Australia’s Foreign Minister Julie Bishop says it would be “very difficult to build trust” with Labour if they form a government after September’s election.
After speaking to an acquaintance in the Australian Labor Party (ALP), Chris Hipkins put two Parliamentary questions to Internal Affairs Minister Peter Dunne about the citizenship of children born in Australia to a New Zealand father.
Mr Dunne then revealed Mr Joyce is a New Zealand citizen, meaning it’s against the law for him to stand in office in Australia.
Having criticised the ALP over its contact with Labour MP Chris Hipkins, Ms Bishop was asked whether she would trust a future NZ Labour government.
“I would find it very difficult to build trust with members of a political party that had been used by the Australian Labor Party to seek to undermine the Australian government,” she said in Canberra on Tuesday.
Mr Hipkins has caused a trans-Tasman political scandal with his questions. The whole affair has thrown the Australian government into chaos, after three politicians had to stand down when it was revealed they also held dual citizenship.

Mr Hipkins told media on Monday that he should have looked into the background of why his ALP acquaintance was seeking information, and said he had no intention of getting involved in Australia’s politics. He said he never spoke to the ALP member about Mr Joyce specifically.
However Prime Minister Bill English says it’s up to MPs to make sure they don’t get embroiled in the politics of another country.
“I can’t remember a time when an MP has done something like that that involves the politics of another country. It’s just another misjudgement about what is actually a serious issue,” Mr English told reporters.
The High Court will determine later this month if Mr Joyce is in breach of the Australian Constitution’s prohibition on dual citizen MPs.

Related, Jacinda Ardern takes the spotlight and shows her mettle, no apology, no backing down;

Sounds to me like the Australian Government doesn’t want the Labour Party in power. Looks like the pot calling the kettle black as far as interference in another nations politics goes, eh, Julie Bishop?

Perhaps there is a wee bit of bias involved as both NZ and Australia’s current governments are IDU members,  whereas Labour (and Aussie Labor) are Progressive Alliance Members. Not to mention NZ’s “retired” PM JOHN KEY being head honcho of the IDU.

At the end of the day it’s all the same anyhow, Red or Blue, take your pick. The Elite will get their light rail system and all the rest, regardless of which party wins.

Breaking: interview with Vaxxed producer who was banned from Australia

Interview with Vaxxed producer banned from Australia

Producer of film Vaxxed banned from Australia

by Jon Rappoport

August 9, 2017

(Part 2 of this story here.)

Polly Tommey, producer of the famous documentary, Vaxxed (trailer), has been banned from Australia. If that sounds quite insane—it is.Polly Tommey

Vaxxed has been screening across the world. It is an explosive revelation about egregious fraud at the US Centers for Disease Control (CDC).

The film focuses on the 2014 public confession of a long-time researcher at the CDC, William Thompson. Thompson admits that he and his colleagues committed a crime, by manipulating data to give the MMR vaccine a free pass, “proving” it had no connection to autism—when in fact, as Thompson states, the vaccine does raise the risk of autism in children.

Here are a few statements from the The Sydney Morning Herald’s report, headlined: “Anti-vaccination advocate ‘banned from Australia’ after documentary tour.”

“The producer Polly Tommey behind a controversial anti-vaccination film which has been touring Australia has been banned from returning to the country for three years, she claims.”

“Ms Tommey spearheaded a sold-out national roadshow of the documentary Vaxxed: From Cover-up to Catastrophe organised by the Australian Vaccinations-Skeptics Network.”

“In a video, posted to Youtube on Tuesday, Ms Tommey claimed authorities seized her phone and copied her emails as she left Australian soil to continue the New Zealand leg of the film tour.”

“’They (Australian Border Force) told me I was banned from Australia for three years and that I would be getting a letter to confirm this,’ Ms Toomey said.”

“A number of secret screenings of the documentary and Q&A sessions were hosted in Australia, including one last week at Village’s Crown casino cinemas in Southbank and another in Melbourne’s eastern suburbs.”

I contacted Polly Tommey, and she sent me this statement, quickly typed on her phone as she was heading to New Zealand:

“After a very successful 2 week tour of Vaxxed in Australia with packed out venues including the Australian National University I went through passport control in Adelaide airport on route to New Zealand, I was traveling with Anu Vaidya, our social media director—he was allowed straight through (we are both on the same business visas and both do the same work, Q&As and stories from parents via social media) I was detained.”

“They took my phone and asked for my password which I gave them (I have nothing to hide) they screenshot emails between AVN [Australian Vaccinations-Skeptics Network (on facebook)] and Vaxxed. They grilled me on Vaxxed and who made money from the documentary, they asked me about Andy Wakefield [also involved in the film’s production].”

“They told me I was banned from Australia for 3 years and I would receive an email to explain in due course. They then gave me my phone back and let me board a plane to New Zealand.”

“Australia’s press did this, they promoted Vaxxed and our tour. We barely filled the venues before they wrote endless articles with quotes from health ministers saying how Vaxxed is dangerous lies. From that moment on the venues were packed with waiting lists, they are their own worst enemies.”

“I don’t need to go back to Australia, the people are strong and know what to do. They are as angry as the rest of the world at the death and destruction of our babies and loved ones.”

Doctors, medical bureaucrats, and government officials in Australia are foaming at the mouth, releasing statements against Vaxxed and warning how “dangerous” the film is, and how it should not be shown and seen.

These Orwellian lunatics want to cancel the public’s right to have access to information. “Don’t think, obey.”

Here is their strategy in a nutshell: they want to equate certain information with shouting fire in a crowded theater and, therefore, claim the right to free speech and free assembly is canceled.

Actually, and quite literally, they’re the ones shouting fire in a crowded theater. Because they want to empty the theaters.

The content of Vaxxed is all about exposing the lies of official science.

Toxic vaccination is destroying the brains of babies and children.

Whether you agree or disagree with that last statement, trying to outlaw conversation about it and intimidate people who want the conversation is sheer totalitarian madness.

Polly Tommey is a woman who stands for what she believes and puts everything on the line. She has delved deeply into the protected secrets of the medical establishment. She has emerged with a film brimming with knowledge.

In a half-sane world, she would be hailed as a hero.

Obviously, the customs agents who detained and questioned her, as she was leaving Australia, who told her she was banned from the country, were acting on behalf of higher-ups.

Those medical, political, and pharmaceutical higher-ups want silence.

From you.

They want you to shut up and close your eyes and march straight ahead into the future they are laying out for you.

A future ever more toxic.

Are you going to give in? Are you going to abandon your natural right to search for the truth? Are you going to suck on the teat of the State and thank your betters for the morsels they hand you?

Are you going to believe this surrender to the State has no danger?

Are you going to stop worrying and learn to love Big Brother?

Sydney terror suspect released overnight without charge Three men remain in custody

According to a joint statement from the Australian Federal Police and New South Wales Police, a terror suspects was “released from police custody last night (Tuesday, 1 August) without being charged with a criminal offence”.
The 50-year-old man was one of four arrested by the NSW Joint Counter Terrorism Team last Saturday after reports that there was an imminent threat to a flight departing from Sydney.
Items found by police allegedly could have been used to construct an improvised bomb.

The three other suspects will remain in police custody for a “specified time” according to the Crimes Act.
One of the men still being detained is Khaled Merhi, who had recently been fired from his job and was reportedly behaving erratically, accumulating massive gambling debts.
“He kept not turning up [to work] so I told him I wasn’t interested in employing him anymore,” Khaled’s boss said.
Khaled’s 76-year-old father, Omar, has lived in Australia for 47 years. He told The Daily Telegraph his son “has never been to a mosque in his life” and was christened at a cathedral in Redfern.
“It’s bulls*** that he wanted to blow up a plane,” Omar said, adamant that his son was always working hard to provide for his seven-year-old child and long-term girlfriend.

Foiled Australian Terror Plot: “Well Timed For The NWO Agenda”?

Foiled Australian Terror Plot: “Well Timed For The NWO Agenda”?

No doubt everyone’s heard the MSM story by now, and the astute will note the sketchy details, with plenty of speculation and use of guarded wording. Is this a false flag, or a real potential terror event that was foiled? Either way it’s certainly seems well timed for the NWO agenda.

Australian Terror Plot

“Four Lebanese Australians — two fathers and two sons — were in custody after police swooped on the cell and thwarted what they will allege was a sophisticated ­attempt to kill hundreds of people by crashing a civilian plane.
The Australian reported today that they had been told the men were allegedly constructing a “non-traditional’’ device that could kill the occupants of the plane with poisonous gas.
Multiple sources have told The Australian the four, who were ­related by blood and marriage, were constructing an explosive ­device that could have emitted a toxic, sulphur-based gas that would have killed or immobilised everyone on the aircraft…..

INCOMING Home Affairs Minister Peter Dutton has warned returning foreign fighters and radicalised terrorists were specifically seeking to kill Australians.
Speaking about increased airport security in the wake of the foiled terror plot in Sydney, Mr Dutton said the threat against Australia was only going to increase.
“People who don’t believe we need to do all we can do to make sure that we are absolutely as effective as humanly possible, they need to look at the facts,” he said.
“The facts demonstrate that we have foreign fighters returning to Australian shores, we’ve got people being radicalised online.
“This threat is not going to go away, it’s going to increase.”
There have been reports the most recent terror attack was discovered after a tip from foreign intelligence agencies
Mr Dutton said the newly-created Home Affairs portfolio, which he will head up, would enable Australia’s security agencies to communicate and share information more effectively.”

(Excerpts from article)

This could be seen as “The Australian 9/11 that wasn’t”: After the “real deal” WTC incident, the mere suggestion of a terror attack is now sufficient to heighten airport security overnight (and things ain’t going back) and ramp up the fear factor. It seems Australia is constantly making news for “police state” NWO innovations right now. Watch out Australia, your freedoms are fast disappearing! (And note the promo for the Five Eyes surveillance thrown in by Dutton)

Australian Aboriginal History Will Have To Be Rewritten Following Archaeological Finds

Aboriginal Archaeological Finds“Jabiru, Northern Territory: Aboriginal people have lived in Australia for a minimum of 65,000 years, a team of archaeologists has established – 18,000 years longer than had been proved previously and at least 5000 years longer than had been speculated by the most optimistic researchers.
The world-first finding, which follows years of archaeological digging in an ancient camp-site beneath a sandstone rock shelter within the Jabiluka mining lease in Kakadu, Northern Territory, drastically alters the known history of the trek out of Africa by modern humans, according to the leader of the international team of archaeologists, associate professor Chris Clarkson of the University of Queensland.”

Since Australia seems to be leading the charge towards the New World Order, I wonder how this fits into the grand scheme? Archaeological discoveries that force us to re-evaluate history and human origins are part and parcel of Project Blue Beam are they not?
