Greens still stuffing up economy
Pictured above. Former Obama White House and Hillary Clinton campaign Advisor John Podesta ...... Wikileaks drops the bombshell that foreign activists are stuffing up Australia's economy with their anti coalmining campaign. Foreign, as in American, to be precise and there is also also a suggestion that one of Obama's advisors is involved. From The Australian
A highly orchestrated, secretly foreign-funded group of Australian environmental activists opposing the $16 billion Adani coalmine in Queensland has “dampened” Indian investment interest in Australia and received heated criticism from the federal Coalition and Queensland Labor governments.Heated criticism doesn't create jobs or wealth. It wont drag the poor Indians who currently heat and cook with animal dung into the 21st century. The Weekend Australian revealed that “progressive” US foundations were funding opposition to the Adani project and passing reports from Sunrise Australia, which was using legal challenges and advice to indigenous groups against the mine, to Mrs Clinton’s campaign chairman, Mr Podesta.
The leader of a foreign-funded, highly orchestrated group of Australian activists working to stop the $16 billion Adani coalmine in Queensland has confirmed links with the Hillary Clinton 2016 Presidential campaign and warned a Clinton administration will “embarrass” the Turnbull Government over coalThat's pretty clear but Anastacia misses the point, most probably deliberately.
Ms Palaszczuk, who was in Prosperine yesterday to talk about the benefit of Adani’s project, for which the company began seeking approval seven years ago, said the US groups should look after their “own backyard”. “US-based and funded organisations worried about political decisions anywhere in the world should be working to keep Donald Trump out of the White House,’’ the Premier said.Keep Trump out of the Whitehouse! For heaven's sake concentrate Annastacia. While you need Green votes to stay alive we know you aren't going to do anything about the activists but at least try and appear interested in the economy of the state you lead...well sort of lead. Oh, and can we improve on "heated criticism from the Federal government?" Maybe some legislation that restricts activists activities to pointless but less dangerous street marches. If the courts of the land can stop development because some Greenie activists planted a skink in the region and then take the developer to court funded by anti-develoment foreign activists then the laws need changing. NOW! UPDATE!
Malcolm Turnbull will revive Tony Abbott’s proposed laws to block environmental activists seeking to stymie major projects. Another example of Tony Abbott getting it right and Turnbull doing nothing about it until he's forced to by the media.
The Abbott government proposed the laws to stamp out “legal sabotage” of major projects after the Federal Court last year upheld a challenge to a massive Queensland coalmine brought by environmental groups. The proposal – rejected by senators in the last parliament – would restrict access to the courts to individuals with a direct interest in the project, such as local farmers and townspeople, and shut out climate change activists who often live hundreds of kilometres away.And, it's not an answer, just a suggested answer that has no relevance until passed by the Senate. Greens and left wing nutjobs still hold sway but maybe Hanson's troops will help this time. Here's hoping.
