Barbara Bush Was the Daughter of Famous Satanist Aleister Crowley "IndyWatch Feed National"

The earth is given into the hand of the wicked! [Job 9:24]

The Bush family are by far, the greatest example of a successful American crime family. No other American family can claim the kind of success that the Bush family has, over the past century. We must give credit, where credit is due. Right?

Samuel Bush was a very successful businessman. He was Skull & Bones I believe. He was instrumental in organizing the military industrial complex, with the Harriman family, and the Remmington gun & ammo company.

Together, they conspired to orchestrate WWI, and made many billions of dollars in 1917 money. That would make them trillionaires by todays standards, which they in fact are.

WESTERN AUSTRALIA PART 3 Cheynes Beach, Honey Possum & three mega-skulkers sunshinecoastbirds

After checking out Corakerup Reserve we headed west to Cheynes Beach for a 3-night stay in a chalet in the caravan park. The site is the best known hotspot for three notoriously skulky south-west WA endemics Western Whipbird, Western Bristlebird and Noisy Scrubbird. We were fortunate to see the whipbird at Corakerup because we failed to see or hear it at all at Cheynes Beach, unlike my last visit there. The coastal scenery was outstanding as usual and the wildflowers put on probably the best display of the trip.

Traditional Owners mount Korea tour to block Adani finance "IndyWatch Feed Enviro"

Media Release 5 November 2018

BREAKING: Korea Development Bank, Export-Import Bank of Korea and KDB Infrastructure Asset Management rule out finance ahead of visit

Brisbane, Australia: With Adani claiming to be close to securing finance, and media reporting the miner is holding talks with Korean finance companies interested in buying a stake in their port, leading Wangan and Jagalingou Traditional Owners are today travelling to Korea to urge investment banks there to shun the Adani coal project, pointing to the final violation of their rights that will occur if the mine proceeds. Three investment banks have ruled out finance in response to W&Js tour (ABC today). 

The heavyweight Korean lender Korea Development Bank (KDB) ruled out involvement last Wednesday, writing they have no intent to provide finance, as has the Export-Import Bank of Korea (KEXIM) and KDB Infrastructure Asset Management, following meeting requests from the Wangan and Jagalingou Traditional Owners Family Council. Documentation here. Meetings with the The National Pension Service, Mirae Asset Daewoo and NH-Amundi have been requested and W&J will visit their offices to conduct media events. In 2015 a visit by W&J to Europe, the UK and United States saw major institutions, including UKs largest investment bank Standard Chartered, publicly back away from financing the mine. Further background below.

W&J Traditional Owner and lead spokesperson Adrian Burragubba said, Whoever assists Adani financially at this crucial time will become complicit in a grave breach of our rights, and the destruction of our lands and waters and sacred places. They are also exposing themselves to financial risk because success...

Morrison government cuts funding for leading reef research centre "IndyWatch Feed National"

Contributed from Townsville

The Morrison government has done it again. This time they have defunded the worlds premier coral reef research centres through the back door. The Townsville-based Centre of Excellence for Coral Reef Studies (ARC), which carries out important research into coral bleaching, was not short-listed for the next round of funding, according to an estimates report tabled in the Senate.

TIn the rush to silence damaging information, this is a new low.

Together with James Cook University, which sponsors the Centre, this is the largest concentration of scientists working on the Reef. It is world renown and has earned citations from 1644 institutions in 103 countries.

How can education minister Dan Tehan can say that there was no targeting of the Centre of Excellence for Coral Reef studies, and that it lost out in funding, because it failed the tendering process? It doesnt add up.

It is no mere coincidence that it happened at a time when community concern over the extent of coral bleaching, and a glaring failure to take appropriate action. The government might be motivated to hide it.

Nor is it a coincidence that the funding cut comes on the heels of Aprils controversial $443.4 million grant to the Great Barrier Reef Foundation, a newly created group without coral reef expertise and largely representing pro coal interests, which wants to put the reef at greater risk, by transporting the stuff through it.  This attempt to pretend that action is being taken, while servicing major contributors to the government parties backfired

The Morrison government has no intention to protect the reef. Its destruction would mean that a globally important habitat would be lost.

Queensland would lose its most important tourism industry resource, costing jobs and sending businesses broke.

The Morrison government deserves to be condemned for this cynical act, and anyone who values the Great Dividing Reef, must insist that the Centre of Excellence for Coral Reef studies is funded once again and the pandering to the coal industry come to an end.

Will Dr Pridgeon End Up With Compo? "IndyWatch Feed National"

by Mary W Maxwell, LLB  (Satire)

It sometimes pays to fight City Hall. In 2007, during the reign of John Howard, the lowly visa-holder Dr Muhhamed Haneef had some big names arrayed against him Attorney General Philip Ruddock and Commonwealth DPP Damian Bugg, not to mention the heavily-armed AFP.

Muhamed Haneef had entered Australia on a special program for foreign doctors. He worked at Gold Coast Hospital and ventured home to India when his wife gave birth.

I wonder if his arrest was meant for show. EVERY COUNTRYS GOT TO HAVE A MUSLIM TERRORIST. They picked him up at Brisbane airport in 2007 for terror-related activities Australias first quarry after the passage of the 2005 anti-terrorism laws.

The evidence of Haneefs terrorism later boiled down to his having given his SIM card to his cousin. Oh my.

Traditional Owners announce Adani court appeal

Call on Qld Government to never extinguish their native title

Wangan and Jagalingou Traditional Owners opposing Adanis Carmichael Mine have this week served notice of a Federal Court full bench appeal. (See ABC today: Adani mine site to remain under native title until finance confirmed, Minister says). The Traditional Owners strongly reject last months decision of a single Judge of the Federal Court and will seek to have the decision reversed and the Adani Indigenous Land Use Agreement (ILUA) thrown out.

Mr Adrian Burragubba, a Traditional Owner of W&J country, and W&J Council spokesperson says: We will not abide a ruling that says its legal to have our ancient laws and culture, and our enduring rights in our lands and waters, merely voted away by a group of people who do not have the traditional authority to surrender our native title.

In a new development, the Queensland Government has confirmed that it will only act to take W&J native title for the Adani project when it has the financial capacity to complete it. This follows a resolution of the Queensland ALP state conference in early September 201...
