Vaxxed producer banned from Australia on instructions of Big Pharma cairnsnews.org

By Jon Rappoport

Polly Tommey, producer of the famous documentary, Vaxxed, has been banned from Australia. If that sounds quite insaneit is.

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 autismwhen 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 Heralds 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.

Producer of the controversial anti-vaccination film, Vaxxed, Polly Tommey, has been banned from entering Australia for three years by Borer Force at Adelaide airport, acting on the instructions of Liberal Health Minister Greg Hunt, who was no doubt acting on the instructions of Big Pharma and naturally the Australian Medical Association.

Ms Tommey spearheaded a sold-out national roadshow of the documentary Vaxxed:...

LifeFlight (Aeromed) LearJet 45 Bizjet VH-VVI "Ambulance 451" at Longreach and Mackay Airports "IndyWatch Feed Qld"

On Thursday 24 August, LifeFlight (Aeromed) LearJet 45 bizjet VH-VVI "Ambulance 451" was noted touching down at Mackay Airport from Brisbane.  About an hour later, it departed to Cairns.

From Cairns, VH-VVI then flew into Longreach Airport before it later returned to Brisbane.

Meanwhile, there has been another bizjet and some nice light General Aviation (GA) visitors to Longreach Airport over the course of this last week.

Last Saturday 19 August, Gulf Coast Aviation Cessna 510 Citation Mustang bizjet VH-KXM popped into Longreach Airport once again, calling in from Bankstown and departing to Vanrook Station near Normanton.

Also last Saturday 19 August, Tasfast Air Freight / Vortex Air Piper PA-31-350 VH-TWU also passed through Longreach Airport, arriving from Cairns and later departing to Charleville.  It eventually continued to its Melbourne (Moorabbin) base.  It appears that VH-TWU has been completing flights between Townsville and Palm Island over recent weeks.

While another Piper PA-31-350 VH-OMN of Dick Lang's Dessert-Air Safaris' arrived into Longreach Airport on Friday 25 August from Innamincka on what looked to be one of its many Safari flights.

Finally, a trio of Pilatus PC-12s have been noted calling into Longreach...

Queensland Government (QGAir) Rescue Bell 412 Helicopter VH-ESD Flys North via Gladstone and Mackay Airports "IndyWatch Feed Qld"

On Tuesday 22 August, Queensland Government (QGAir) Rescue Bell 412 helicopter VH-ESD was noted flying North from Archerfield to Townsville via Gladstone and Mackay Airports.

https://www.facebook.com/rescue521queensland/

It has been noted in recent times at Redcliffe Aerodrome receiving planned maintenance since it flew South from Townsville in mid-June.  It looked to fly across to Archerfield on Monday 21 August.

After returning to Townsville, VH-ESD looks to have returned to service already completing a med-evac flight to Ingham and back as "Rescue 521".

US Army Beech C-12J Huron (Beech 1900C-1) 86-00082 & Beech C-12F Huron (B200C) 84-00155 at Rockhampton Airport "IndyWatch Feed Qld"

As we mentioned on our Facebook page earlier in the week, a pair of small United States Army (US Army) turboprop aircraft were noted arriving into Rockhampton Airport from Cairns and Darwin.


They were identified as Beech C-12J Huron (Beech 1990C-1) 86-00082 "Cats 83" and Beech C-12U-3 Huron (B200C) 84-00155 "Cats 72" and have since spent their time parked on the Northern end of the Rockhampton Airport apron.


Information suggested that they were due to return to Cairns during the week but as shown, they remain at Rockhampton Airport and were moved to the Southern end of the parking apron on Saturday 26 August.

Of interest, both aircraft are flown by the 6th Battalion of the 52nd Aviation Regiment (6/52nd AVN) of the US Army.  It appears that they also spent some time flying with the United States Air Force (USAF).

Branching out from woodswallows to coucals tyto tony

Stiff breezes appear to have assisted prey up towards small appreciative groups of White-breasted Woodswallows in recent mornings.

Spent a few hours trying to catch a few birds in flight. Bit of cheating going on with these images.

Birds were coming and going from dead upright branch. Which has been cloned from the pictures. The birds are otherwise simply too fast for me.

Lots slower, Pheasant Coucals wandering down the road, singly, or often lately in hopeful or breeding pairs.

Adani: Australian Conservation Foundation loses appeal against $16b Carmichael coal mine "IndyWatch Feed Enviro.au"

The Age, By Ellie Sibson, 26 Aug 17, Environmentalists have lost another appeal against Adanis $16 billion Carmichael coal mine in Queenslands Galilee Basin.

The Australian Conservation Foundation (ACF) lodged the appeal last year after an earlier court ruling endorsed the mines environmental approval.

The full bench of the Federal Court in Brisbane today dismissed the foundations arguments that the Federal Environment Minister had failed in his duty to consider the mines impact on the Great Barrier Reef.

Anti Adani coal project movement continues, despite Court setback "IndyWatch Feed Enviro.au"

Court setback for anti-Adani campaign  Margaret Gleeson https://www.greenleft.org.au/glw-authors/margaret-gleeson, August 25, 2017  https://www.greenleft.org.au/content/court-setback-anti-adani-campaign

While further legal challenges in the High Court are still awaiting decision,  the movement in opposition to Adani is growing.  Protests have been held in recent weeks in Townsville and Brisbane  targetting Adanis offices and those of likely contractor Downer.  Arrests were made.

The campaign is currently organising a series of summits in  Queensland regional centres, Brisbane and Sydney  to plan the next steps in the campaign.  The focus so far has been on direct action.
This has successfully prevented Adani from securing financial support from the Big Four Banks.

as Adani continues to have the support of both the Coalition and Labor,  to defeat Adani and put an end to all new coalmines in Australia,  mass demonstrations will be needed along with  the lobbyingdirect action and legal tactics.

Katters Australian Party wants to abolish gun registration cairnsnews.org

Bob Katter took part in a recent western shoot at the Mareeba SSAA range. He joked that this might be the best way to bring the banks into line. Bob says KAP is the only party in Queensland that wants to do away with firearms registration which has been a long-held policy. Bob spent some time shooting at the range with pistol, rifle and shotgun. His pistol ability did not go unnoticed by the club. They want him to come back for a days competition. The veteran politician warns that if the Labor Party gets re-elected in Queensland with a majority, the states 600,000 shooters will be faced with restrictions on ammunition sales and even tighter restrictions on gun ownership. He says the ALP and LNP simply hate guns.

Culleton brings criminal charges against Brandis cairnsnews.org

The Federal Government and Opposition continue to fall apart driven by corruption scandals, citizenship disqualification and a judiciary acting as the arm of dishonest political parties.

Former One Nation WA senator Rod Culleton has borne the brunt of a corrupt and unaccountable judiciary marching to the orders of Liberal Attorney General George Brandis.

This time justice might catch up to the errant Brandis after he was served with a summons to face the Magistrates Court on a criminal conspiracy charge.

Attorney General George Brandis faces disqualification from two fronts. One is a criminal charge against him and two is an entitlement to German citizenship.

Culleton has charged the beleaguered Attorney General with conspiracy allegedly over his part in giving the senate false information to have the High Court disqualify Culleton over his bankruptcy which he says was an intentionally incorrect finding of a Federal Court judge.

Culleton launched the private prosecution after a meeting with the Chief Magistrate in Canberra.

Meanwhile the Director of Public Prosecutions is attempting to take over the case and shut it down, no doubt on orders from the accused Attorney General.

Culleton says the DPP is a publ...

Federal Court rejects legal argument Adani Carmichael approval invalid "IndyWatch Feed Enviro.au"

The Federal Court has today rejected legal arguments that Federal environmental approval of the mine was invalid.

On behalf of ACF, we argued the approval of the mine was contrary to obligations to consider the climate change impacts of the mine on the Great Barrier Reef under the Federal Environment Protection and Biodiverstiy Conservation Act 1999. Unfortunately, the Federal Court did not agree. (Read the full judgment).

Today is a disappointing day for people concerned about the Great Barrier Reef and the impacts of this mine, including the 4.7 billion tonnes of carbon pollution that would result from the burning of its coal. But it is not the end.

Our legal staff here at EDO Qld were proud to represent the Australia Conservation Foundation in this case.

Public interest challenges like this, and the recent win for farmers against New Acland Coal, where people stand up to see the law is enforced are just so important to hold industry and government to account.

Dont forget it was the Adani Land Court case that exposed additional risks to the endangered Black-throated Finch and sacred Doongmabulla Springs and found the economic benefits Adani asserted in its EIS to be overstated.

Please make a donation to EDO Qld today so that we can continue to run these urgent climate change and Reef protection cases.

Thank you to the wonderful supporters of EDO Qld, to our barristers Mr Saul Holt QC, Mr Emrys Nekvapil and Dr Chris McGrath and to the Australia Conservation Foundation.

MEDIA RELEASE: Adani challenges fine for pollution breach next to the Great Barrier Reef Fight For Our Reef

The Australian Marine Conservation Society (AMCS) today expressed disbelief that the Adani company will challenge a $12,900 fine for breaching its pollution licence next to the Great Barrier Reef.

AMCS Great Barrier Reef Campaign Director Imogen Zethoven said it was inconceivable that Adani was challenging the paltry fine, given its own report found it had breached the licence.

Adani has admitted that it exceeded a temporary licence from the Queensland government to pollute the surrounding environment at Abbot Point coal port during Cyclone Debbie, Ms Zethoven said.

Adani released 806 mg/l when its temporary licence allowed it to pollute 100 mg/l.

The violation of the licence shows that Adani cannot be trusted to operate a coal port next to the Great Barrier Reef.

Scientists have warned repeatedly that severe cyclones Category 3 and above are likely to become even more severe as a result of climate change.

If Adanis Carmichael mine and port development is allowed to proceed, we risk damaging coal pollution discharges into the Great Barrier Reef. This is the last thing the Reef needs.

The Adani company has a very poor environmental track record in India. It is already showing that it has a poor track record here, even before the Carmichael mine commences operations.

Its high time for our governments to recognise that Adanis mine, rail and port project should be rejected outright, and all approvals revoked.

The federal and Queensland governments should be putting the Reef and its 64,000 tourism jobs first.

The Great Barrier Reef is in grave danger. Adanis project will only accelerate damage to the Reef, when we should be doing all we can to relieve pressure on our natural wonder by switching rapidly to 100% renewable energy, Ms Zethoven said.
