Czech President Vaclav Klaus:- National Press Club (Australia)

Czech President also interviewed on the Bolt Report.

via Andrew Bolt

A very good interview with the President on MTR Radio. The President talks about climate change, Europe, and the debt in America. Listen here.

What I find that is really embarrassing for Australia, is that our Prime Minister, Julia Gillard refused to meet the President of the Czech Republic Vaclav Klaus, why you might ask, I can only assume it is because he does not believe in man-made Climate Change. Sure the President was not here on an official visit but that is no excuse not to make a President of another Country feel welcome in Australia, I dread to think of what the people in the Czech Republic think about us.

Yet our PM did meet the former PM of Britain Tony Blair, he is a firm believer in man-made climate change? (When someone is getting paid just for this purpose it does make one wonder), it really does beggar belief. So if you don't agree with the same things as our PM and you happen to come to Australia you are going to be snubbed. What makes this even worse is Tony Blair is of course getting paid Millions to try to change people's and Governments minds on climate change.

The former prime minister will be paid at least £700,000 a year to act as a “strategic adviser” to Khosla Ventures, a venture capitalist firm founded by Indian billionaire Vinod Khosla. The Californian company bankrolls businesses hoping to profit from technology that helps reduce global warming and carbon emissions.
London Evening Standard.

There is a very good article written in the paper by Miranda Devine I feel it is well worth a read if you haven't already read this piece.

In a Sydney hotel on Monday night, Czech President Vaclav Klaus, an economist who fought against communism, was warning of the new threats to our freedom he recognises in the doctrine of global warming.

Almost simultaneously, in a Hobart casino, Greens Senator Christine Milne was unilaterally announcing, on ABC TV’s Q&A show, that the government would be conducting an inquiry into that section of the Australian media that she finds “extreme(ly) bias(ed) against action on climate change”.

Australia We Have A Convoy:- Destination Canberra (Updated)

The Convoy arrives in Canberra on the 22nd of August.

Mick Pattel is the organizer with the board members of NRFA, (National Road Freighters Association) for this progressive joining convoy - much support for this to take place as the frustration and no confidence in the Federal Government is reiterated over and over again.

There is movement in Australia, the word has passed around,
A bob tailed truck is leaving Katherine, NT Canberra bound.
Now the truck will bolt from his yards on the 17th of August 2011,
No doubt the mob will be joining him, on his journey down.
Click onto photo's for a larger view.

A progressive Convoy is what he has sent the message for far and wide,
The call will be answered without a moments hesitation from all who can drive.
So down your tools, put your leave notice in - for today we become part of Australian history together.

Click onto flyer above, print it out and pass it around, see if your local businesses will put it in their window, or the local pub/club up on the notice board, help to spread the word.

Feedback is positive, with many welcoming his proposal. It is time for action, its time for history in Australian Government to be reminded that the people are who they must listen to..

The Prime Minister told Laurie Oaks, "Democracy is not an opinion poll Laurie..."
Quite right Prime Minister, it is not. Democracy is a vote...


Fantastic funny video:- The Convoy of No Confidence Song check it out.

Make banners for your vehicles, to show your vote of no confidence - people want an election..

Check your tyres, oil and water, fuel up, and join in when it comes through your town...

At this stage, due to so many stating they will be driving their cars, utes, trucks et, the convoy will likely be split to criss cross the states on the way down to Canberra, allowing more people to see the power of grassroots people, and join in the Convoy.

Update:- There are now 11 Convoy's.

Carbon Tax Package:- Labor is Still not Telling the full Story.(Australia)

After Labor showing such a bad result in the polls this week, The ALP primary vote is down 1 point to 26 per cent - the lowest for either major party in the poll’s 39-year-history, the results were published in The Age. I find it incredible that so many are still standing behind this unelected PM.

It does seem obvious to me that a lot of the population is well and truly turning their backs on the PM and Labor, and I feel that Labor really started falling when Julia announced that they will introduce a carbon tax. Some people, including myself, feel they can no longer trust not only the PM but the Labor Party as a whole.
A reminder of what was said before the election.

So it really does seem like the Greens are taking over power, and Labor is just bending to whatever they want. As you may know Julia is now going around trying to sell the carbon tax package, a few people who I have talked to are asking the question; is she being truthful about what she is saying. I think the question should also be what isn't she saying about the carbon tax package. I have put this is a post before, but for those that may have missed it:- Labor makes a big thing about raising the thresholds on the Statutory tax, but why have they not mentioned that the actual tax rate will be increasing.

                                     Via Andrew Bolt. Click picture for a larger view.

Also another item that I haven't heard Julia or Labor mentioning is that this carbon tax will rise every year. This was talked about before the package came out, but now we know exactly how much it will be going up. As we all know now the carbon tax will start at $23 a ton from July 2012, but every year the price will increase by 2.5% above the rate of inflation. As reported in the ABC.

Also treasury's modelling of the carbon tax was based on $20 a ton not on the $23 a ton that Labor/Greens/Independents decided on. The Australian. This means that all the prices that Labor released are wrong.

Council rates will also rise because of the carbon tax, not only for the emissions coming from local dumps, but also the extra costs the councils will have to pay for street lighting etc. Courier Mail. This of course will mean a rise for anyone renting as well. It will also mean an extra cost for businesses which will be passed on down the line.

Building costs will also rise under the carbon tax, $6.000 for a new home, that's based on the $20 carbon tax, not the $23 that has been put forward. I don't know how much more it will be as the price of the tax goes up, and naturally it will cost more to renovate as well. A very good article about this in the Herald Sun.

The money that the Labor Party has pledged to the UN through their climate change committee, Australia so far have sent $599 Million, that is a lot of taxpayers money for what? Jo-Nova.

I almost forgot; There will be no carbon tax on petrol (under a Government that I lead) said Julia, well that is not entirely true, it may only last for the 1st year of the tax, as the Greens say it will be in the tax. 9 News. Even so in the first year, the electricity rises for the garages will be passed on to the consumer anyway, also the extra power costs at the refinery's.

This is all going to cost a lot more than what Labor is telling us. As far as I'm concerned they may not be lying about this, but they sure are not telling us everything. If people truly believe that this tax is only going to cost us just under $10 a week, and will only add 80 cents a week to groceries sit down and do the sums, and don't forget because we are paying more for everything, the end price with the 10% GST is also going to be more, a tax on top of a tax.

The Labor Party is expecting public opinion to start to turn around after the tax is introduced, they say that people will see the sky is not about to fall and they will find it isn't that bad. My question is, forget about the 1st year of the tax, it's all the following years as it keeps increasing that is the worry, will people fall for this tactic when the tax is introduced, maybe some will, but by the following year they will soon see this is really going to hurt, and no amount of compensation is going to help those that will no longer have a job or keep up with the costs.

Sorry about such a long post, I hope you were able to get a bit of information that you may have been looking for.

Professor Richard Lindzen On Australia's Carbon Tax (Video)

Andrew Bolt interviewed Professor Lindzen on his show today (10th July 2011)"The Bolt Report" it was a fantastic interview I thought, so I decided I would put the interview in my blog for anyone that missed it, or would like to hear the other side of the climate debate. Professor Lindzen said "If you can get people to believe that paying a tax will save the planet, then it's a dream come true for politicians." Personally I really liked that line. Before you watch the video's, I just thought I would let you know what Julia didn't say, and that is, that the tax rate will be increasing for a lot of people, look at the report below.

Broncos Leagues Club Won't Allow Freedom of Speech

Lord Monckton (Climate Sceptic) had a venue booked at the Broncos here in Brisbane as part of his speaking tour in Australia. The Broncos have seen fit to cancel on Lord Monckton, the reasons given was that a number of members complained, and they were not happy with Lord Monckton calling Ross Garnaut a Nazi, Lord Monckton has apologized for saying this, in the newspapers as well as radio and TV, but it seems the club may have been fooled, GetUp seems to be involved in getting this shut down. Apparently it was on GetUp web site, since taken down, so that really does speak volumes I feel.

Screen shot of the now deleted item from GetUp. More screen shots here.
(Click screenshot for larger view)

It is hard to believe a club like this will not allow Freedom of Speech, and I certainly hope any members will let it be known that we are supposed to be a Democracy here in OZ. How gullible are these people that are supposed to be in charge of this club, they really should feel ashamed, and I certainly hope they lose a lot of members over this.
It is certainly not a club that I would want to associate with anymore, and I will not be going back there, and I have e-mailed and phoned to let them know exactly how I feel.

If you would like to let the club know how you feel, you can e-mail the club at or you can ring the Broncos Leagues Club Venue Feedback Ph: (07) 3858 9003

Leon Byner speaks to Lord Monckton about the Federal Governments proposed carbon tax and its impact on all Australians

Tickets had already been sold through ticketek to a lot of people, so it was already to go, fully organized, before the club decided against it. It is a scary thought to know that hard left activists can shut down a venue just like that, and even scarier to know that the people from the Broncos allowed it. What is happening to our Country?

Selective Free Speech on Display at the Broncos
In the Middle Ages they would have burned him. In the 1930’s they would be content with burning his books. Today they are content withdrawing their venues preventing him from speaking. What wonderful progress we are making.Read more here.

It seems a lot of people know GetUp was behind it all except the Bronco's, they are in damage control.
Michael Smith interviews the General Manager of Bronco's.

The Australian Government is now offering $250,000 to any organizations that can convince the public we need a carbon tax. Known as a Climate Change Grant Program.
Tim Blair

It does seem like the warmists are running scared, why are they so afraid of people hearing the other side of the debate on climate change? Could it have something to do with all the money that is involved, after all we are talking about just under $12 Billion paid to the Government in the first year of the carbon tax.
