Climate change report predicts Armageddon by 2050

An Australian policy paper outlining a doomsday scenario for humans if there is no action taken to deal with climate change suggests that by 2050, there could be irreversible damage to global climate systems.
This would result in a world of chaos where political panic is the norm and would see us on a path facing the end of civilisation.

Scientists say intensifying heatwaves will soon make Australian cities ‘uninhabitable’

Climate scientists are warning that if these conditions persist, a number of Australia’s capitals will become uninhabitable in the very near future.
Heatwaves form when high pressure in the upper atmosphere stops air from rising and traps the heat, similarly to how a pressure cooker works. Extreme heatwaves wreak havoc on the environment and threaten power, traffic and water infrastructure.

“If climate change keeps accelerating the Top End will become uninhabitable”

“If climate change keeps accelerating the Top End will become uninhabitable due to extreme heat, catastrophic storms and sea level rise.”

'Many parts of Earth could become uninhabitable': Study's grim warning!!!

Earth is at risk of entering an irreversible "hothouse" climate, according to a new study
Many parts of the planet could become uninhabitable, scientists warn
The point of no return "could be only decades ahead"

Too hot for humans? First Nations people fear becoming Australia's first climate refugees!!!

Aboriginal people in Alice Springs say global heating threatens their survival
The town had 55 days above 40C in the year to July 2019
Central Australian outstations are running out of water
Poor quality housing in town camps cannot be cooled effectively
Indigenous leaders fear extreme heat will cause influx of internal refugees

Climate change evacuation planning needs to start now, scientists urge

Some people will become stateless, and will need to find homes in new countries, while others will need to relocate within their own borders.
Researchers writing in Science today argue that it's time to begin preparing the retreat of people living in regions that will become uninhabitable due to climate change.
By preparing now we can manage retreat in as equitable a way possible, and minimise paternalism and disruption to culture, according to author AR Siders from the Disaster Research Centre at the University of Delaware.
"People need to think about it right now," Dr Siders said.

Aljazeera. Climate Change Extinction.

Aljazeera. Climate Change Extinction.
11,000 scientists just announced that climate change has us on track for 'untold suffering', while the UN says the collapse of our ecosystems could wipe out a **MILLION** species.

And, we could be one of them.

There used to be many "environmental issues". But now, it's all one struggle. For life itself. We’re not separate from nature -- we ARE nature, and in this struggle we can find our true selves: not a virus that plagues this planet, but a species that protects all life.
Catastrophic climate change could end life on Earth. But our most powerful protection against climate change is life itself - vast forests and grasslands that turn our carbon emissions into water and oxygen. But since 1970, we've destroyed vast habitats, wiping out 60% of mammal, bird, fish and reptile populations! Only by saving both the climate and nature can we ultimately save ourselves.
I don’t know if there are any organizations out there that can organize a peaceful revolution, but if there is, then you better do it NOW, because we are fast running out of time!!!

Global Warming 2020 Australia.

It is early summer here in Australia; the temperature outside in the shade today was 35 degrees C. Fire season started here in New England in winter, & the bushfires have increasingly got worse. People are still talking about what we are going to do before 2050, but don’t you think that by 2050 the temperatures here will have reached such a height that we will not be able to go outside!!! The human body shuts down at 50 degrees C. !!! At these temperatures road surfaces will be melting, & this includes airport runways! Railway tracks will be buckling, transport will be at a standstill!!!
What do you think is going to happen to the electricity grid when everyone turns on their air conditioners? Is the government going to cater to this with more coal power generators?!!! The government says that Australia has met its carbon reduction target, but this is absolute bullshit, & on top of this Australia is exporting more coal than any other country in the whole world!!!
Bushfires are already in the extreme, & summer has only just started. Each year Australia will get hotter, my dam is the lowest it has ever been, leaves in the garden burn from the sun without shade cloth. The forest trees are dying fast, & the more trees that die, the faster global warming accelerates!!! Our tanks are not empty yet, but with no decent rain they soon may be. I am not likely to live until 2050, but my sons will, & my grandchildren will. Imagine what life is going to be like for them in 30 years time?!!!
We all know what needs to be done, we need to stop burning fossil fuels, & we need to stop destroying the native forests & woodlands, but this is not going to happen is it? The government certainly won’t stop selling coal or stop the burning of fossil fuels, will the people do it? No of course they won’t, they will sit on the fence until global warming really gets bad, so bad that those city lifestyles are affected, then they will start to winge & wine & some may even join the street protests, but will they do anything? Will they take control? No they won’t.
Eventually global warming will get really bad, and then the street protests will turn violent. People will get hurt & arrested. Things will get worse & this may start a revolution, but by this time it will be too late. Global warming will have past the point of no return, society will collapse, climate change will cause TEOTWAWKI, & after that possibly a mass extinction! WHY? Why is the Australian public sitting on the bloody fence waiting for this to happen? It makes no sense to me what so ever. If the government were to ban the drinking of beer I will wager the whole of Australia would be up in arms, but tell them that there is going to be a human extinction & they totally ignore it.
I don’t have any answers for the minority like myself who can see what is coming but are unable to stop it. All I can advise is that you start to prepare for what is coming. Get out of the city, go off grid. Grow your own food as best you can, be as self reliant & self sufficient as you can given the present society restrictions. Teach your children what to do. Start preparing now while we still have time.

How deadly is 50-degree heat? Australia's cities face the new reality of climate change

Buckled train tracks, grounded planes, melting bitumen and massive blackouts: the dystopian vision of the 50-degree city is closer to reality every day.


So what happens when transport comes to a standstill in & out of the city?!!! Even 4WDs can't move with a build-up of melted tarmac on their tyres!!!

Climate Change Emergency is Real. Our very lives depend on us acting NOW!!!

This was Wychwood Forest some years ago, now it is dying. There is no longer any green grass & the wildlife is suffering. The trees are literally dieing from the heat & the lack of rain. On top of this we are now threatened by catastrophic bushfires. All this is caused by human made climate change. 

Long before the cattle industry, the world was populated with large numbers of ruminants, but the world seemed to have no issues with methane. American plains Africa and other continents had millions of buffalo, so how & when did the problem arise?
The world was a different place back then, large grassy plains managed by the indigenous peoples, huge wide spread forests, & healthy oceans. All these were producing oxygen & absorbing methane/Co2.
Then came the industrial revolution & the invasion of America & Australia. The industrial revolution marks the time steam engines were invented & coal was being burnt for energy. The invasions killed off many of the indigenous peoples & changed their lifestyles for ever. The grassy plains were no longer being managed to produce more green grass for the wildlife, now it was overrun by cattle & sheep. The forests were being logged for timber & destroyed & cleared to make more land for settlement & farming. The oceans lasted a little longer, but eventually humans also managed to pollute & contaminate with radio active waste, oil spills, garbage disposal, & single use plastics.
The herds of herbivores were mostly killed off & replaced with cattle & sheep in far greater numbers. The world was/is no longer green & the carbon dioxide levels rose & the oxygen levels in the oceans reduced. Now we have human made climate change, which is further destroying our forests through creating catastrophic conditions for bushfires. We have the internal combustion engine churning out Co2 into the atmosphere. We have coal burning electricity plants churning out more Co2 into our atmosphere. The planet is warming which is melting the ice & the permafrost. Melting ice has created black water which absorbs more heat. Melting permafrost is releasing more carbon into the atmosphere & releasing long buried pathogens & viruses.
Our world can no long keep up with the massive production of Co2 from livestock & other sources. The planet will survive when most, if not all humans have died due to climate change.
The world's people, the Australian people, need to act now. If they do not take control of this human made climate change situation, then we may all quite possibly die in a mass extinction event!!! This is NOT paranoia, this is NOT sensationalising, this is NOT bullshit! This is REAL! If the people wait for someone else to fix this, they are going to find themselves trying to survive TEOTWAWKI, & after that possibly a mass extinction!
I have done all I can through popular media channels to warn the population about climate change global warming, apart from preparing my own home in the forest off grid to help my children & grandchildren survive, there is nothing else that I can do. You NEED to take control of your lives, you NEED to take control of climate change by stopping the burning of fossil fuels, & by stopping the logging & destruction of our native forests & woodlands. Your future & your children's future depends on it!!!

Why Sweden is encouraging citizens to become preppers.

Thoughts for The Week by Ron Owen of Owen Guns.

Thoughts For The Week.
“As in nature, politics abhors a power vacuum.”
History has shown that weak, undefended countries are short lived experiences, until filled by a more violent power.
“We have between two and three years to go, before we have a major confrontation with China.”
History through the ages is littered with examples of Australia’s current demise. The pages of history prove to us that when presented with a power vacuum: there will arise a force; a country and Empire which will try to fill that void. History also shows that the force will be sinister. A force that will take away your liberty, your property, your happiness, and ultimately your life. I have seen the modern examples in my own lifetime, in the form of Communism, and have second generation knowledge of the scourge of Fascism in Nazi Germany, Italy, and the Imperial designs of the Japanese empire. Only 1 in a 100 examples are power voids filled by a benign power and China does not have a record of being benign.

Anson Chan, the former chief secretary of Hong Kong, occupied a position of trust unique in history. She was the last head of the Hong Kong civil service under the British and the first under the Chinese. She served four years under each, evidence that both powers trusted her impartiality and professionalism.
“I don’t think Australians understand the sort of country they’re dealing with. Look at the way they are infiltrating, even in Australia,” she said during a visit to Melbourne in 2016. “Australia is a very open society, so it wouldn’t occur to most people the designs of the one-party state. And it wouldn’t have occurred to the people of Hong Kong until we experienced it first-hand. No one should be under any illusions about the objective of the Communist Party leadership: it’s long-term, systematic infiltration of social organisations, media and government. By the time China’s infiltration of Australia is readily apparent, it will be too late.”
We’ve seen the pattern throughout history, with the empires, monarchies and savagery of forces seeking to conquer their known world, Babylonians, Greeks, Egyptians, Romans, Saxons, Danes, Norman, Mongols, the Spanish Armada, Napoleon, National Socialism, Hitler, Japanese Imperialism, Communism, Lenin and now Chinese Communism. They all have to try, as they know that if they fail to take an area someone else will fill the void. Power always seeks the ultimate in power. The opportunists are always rewarded, but not all win, some ultimately fail, but all leave behind them a total devastation, battlefields, personal human losses that in every instance the surviving common folk have to deal with until the next tyrant comes along. If there are any survivors at all.
Our Current Appeaser.
China’s ‘game-changing’ position will ‘reset the world order’, PM Scott Morrison says. China’s increased influence needed to be understood in terms of its rise.
“China in our lifetime has gone from a developing country, one of not great economic size or scale and not a large military, to the second biggest economy in the world with one of the largest militaries,” he said. “So it’s obviously been the game-changing country of our era and our generation. That’s obviously going to reset the world order. “We just need to understand that in its context. They’re a much bigger country than they used to be with much more influence, and that’s just something the system has to absorb and adapt to.”
Asked if the average Australian should be worried about China, he said “worry is not the word”.
Would “Petrified” be more of an honest response?
Is he mentally retarded, or is he a paid traitor for the Chinese like some of our other parliamentarians? Could he really be that blind to Chinese intentions.
Since 1949 China’s policy has been a never-ending pursuit of power, the relentlessly expanding influence and paranoid nature of the Chinese Communist Party invaded Korea, Tibet, Mongolia, East Turkestan, India, Vietnam means that it will continue to press outwards unless and until it meets resistance. It would be in Taiwan in a heart beat and is bursting to suppress Hong Kong. It has invaded Philippine’s Territory in the South China Sea and the world has done nothing. It has invaded Australian Antarctic Territory and Australia has not even asked them to leave. At home and abroad, it imposes one control after another until it is satisfied that it has total control. It is an ideology of authoritarianism animated by a psychology of totalitarianism.
The Appeasers are Sedated by this sort of Nonsense.
1. “No China can’t invade Australia.
China cannot break out of the first Island Chain or successfully invade Taiwan with a guarantee of success let alone Australia.”
Answer. The USA is not going to risk losing half its major cities to Chinese Ballistic Missiles to save Australia, South Korea, or Taiwan, or the Philippines. Once the threat of Nuclear War with the USA is removed, or fully cancelled Taiwan will not last a week.
2. “The distances are massive, 9,000km to Sydney, let alone Melbourne, Adelaide and the interior. China’s long supply lines can be easily interdicted by naval and air forces.”
Answer . China no longer has long supply lines it has bases all around us. Besides the South China Sea bases it has these as marked on the map.
3. “The forces required to invade Australia and secure it, are massive. Think of the Germans invading the USSR, Australia has great depth to fall back, hide, and counter attack at our choosing. No nation can successfully hold onto Australia with the deployments of hundreds of thousands of soldiers, perhaps a million.”
Answer . China has over 2 million men in its Army and millions more to call up. The Chinese also have a large well paid fifth column within Australia and subscribe to the creed to “Win Without Fighting”. Similar to Hitler’s strategy with the Appeasers he took the Rhineland, Austria and Czechoslovakia without fighting. Once they cut off our oil supplies and military goods our leaders will surrender and fly off to the South of France.
4. “The ADF would not engage in head on battles after a successful invasion, instead hit supply lines, logistics, hit and run tactics, use terrain and local knowledge to our advantage. Prior to the invasion force arriving which will need to traverse tight sea lanes and be visible to anyone who is looking.”
Answer. Amazing that people still see danger coming from the North of Australia, they imagine an enemy would be stupid enough to land in Northern Territory and march down to the southern capitals, when if all of their other ploys failed and they did have to fight they could either fly into the airports that they already own, or land anywhere between Sydney and Melbourne and drive to Canberra, or both. We have nothing to stop them. They have a Navy and Air force and we don’t.
5. “The Jindalee over the Horizon Radar System can track planes and ships in the South China Sea as far as Southern China. A large fleet headed to Australia would be tracked by this system or via satellite. Submarines and Aircraft would be used to either stop this fleet or reduce its effectiveness.”
Answer. More than likely China will take an off shore island like Lord Howe Island and one of the Chesterton Island and once supplied with J20 supersonic jet fighters and lots of missiles before turning off all our imports. From our six Collins Class Submarines we might get one to go to sea, as they are based in Western Australia it might take a fortnight to get to Torres Straits for its suicide run. China has 60 submarines and submarine drones even if we could send one or two destroyers or frigates they would be committing suicide again Chinese battle fleets with plenty of air cover.
6. “China would have limited or no air support. China has 1 Aircraft carrier with 1 locally built carrier soon to join the fleet. The limited numbers of aircraft they carry do not pose a significant threat to Australia’s air force which is also obtaining the F-35 Stealth Fighter. You only need to hit the air craft carrier to take out China’s air cover, then prevent China taking an airport/base as part of its invasion which would leave Chinese troops at the mercy of the Australian Air Force, it would be a slaughter. Australia would lose a number of F-18 Super Hornets to ship based defences, however combined with limited numbers F-35’s, P-8 Poseidon maritime strike planes, let alone the Australian Navy which would first use Collins Class Submarines.”
Answer. The Government stooge who writes the above clap trap has obviously not been informed of the two Chinese airport already here in Western Australia both controlled by Chinese State Corporations Citic and China Southern Airlines. The writer obviosly would not know that off shore Islands unlike aircraft carriers are un-sinkable, that China would not have to bring its carriers into the range of our air force, yet Chinese aircraft could dominate all of the East coast of Australia as the J20 has a range of 1100 miles. The J20 aircraft is considered a good match for the F35 maybe better, but no matter China has a lot more of them and has the factories that produce more when needed.
7. “Tiger attack helicopters would attack and landings and without air cover Chinese invading Ground forces would be decimated and easily repelled by the Australian Army. The US would also quickly resupply Australia with new aircraft, they have plenty of F-18 Super Hornets in the inventory to send us, plus the F-35’s will be rolling of the production line, they would be sent to the Australian air force to replace losses just as they did to Israel in its wars, we could also obtain resupply of smart missiles/bombs and other equipment we would require.”
Answer. Our 22 Tiger attack helicopter might have 12 working, China can draw on 1004, it also has 1500 fighter jets to give it as much air cover as it needs. The F-35s can role off the production line in the USA but Australia will have no means of flying or sailing them into the country. Re-supply of anything will be zero, as all sea way and air ways will be blocked by Chinese missiles or aircraft.
8. For China to successfully have any chance of invading Australia it would need to secure air bases and ports closer to Australia such as in Indonesia or PNG. This build-up of Chinese forces and bases would be seen and known well in advance and preparations would be made for a potential Chinese invasion. Without land based support from aircraft and a much shorter supply line an invasion would fail. Even with this the numbers of troops required to secure Australia’s population and hold the land against counter attack by Australian allies such as the US, Britain, NZ, Japan, Singapore to name a few would be immense and not possible.
Answer. We know about it already in advance anyway, we are surrounded by Chinese air bases and deep water ports. It has been seen, but our Appeasement Governments are too scared to alert Australia and place it on a ready for war footing. Defence problems happen quickly, China has land based support for its aircraft and short distances to its local ports and bases. China’s bases in Antarctica would assist with targeting Chinese missiles to knock out all government infrastructure. China has had much experience in securing civilian populations, it eliminates the none useful and makes slaves of only the ones worth feeding.
Good British, Canadian and American people would want there governments to assist Australia but they would be powerless to assist, China has its bases all in a row, it would control the Indian Ocean, the Pacific Ocean and the vast resources of the Southern Ocean, China’s southern flank will be secured they might be able to impose trade sanctions on China for a few years, they might stop the World Bank paying China a Billion US dollars every year in aid, but with all the resources from Antarctica, Australia and the South Pacific China will be an unstoppable world power. Japan, Taiwan, Malaysia. Indonesia, Africa and India will be the next ducks in the row.

China will not care about Global Warming, or Save the Whales, they want world domination and nothing will stand in their way. Ron Owen

Got a gun? Meet the MP who thinks you're better off dead

Minister for Police Mr David Elliott.
Got a gun? Meet the MP who thinks you're better off dead
In late 2017, the Deputy Premier of NSW tasked a committee of the New South Wales Parliament to consider changes to the NSW Firearms Act to support the rights of homeowners trying to protect themselves.
The committee has just handed down its verdict.  In this blog we reveal the verdict, and why the NSW Police Minister seems to think:
 people are better off being Dead than Alive with a gun
Minister Elliott’s response
We have now received Mr Elliott’s advice. You can read it by clicking here (check your ‘download’ folder if you can’t find it).
To say it is astonishing is an understatement.  We have summarised what Mr Elliott's said below in bold, with our comments in brackets:
 The issue about whether you can use a gun contrary to your ‘genuine reason’ arises in the National Firearms Agreement  (Wrong.  Genuine reason is regulated by the NFA, but 'use' is not.  The 'use' of firearms is regulated by section 7A of the NSW Firearms Act which is out of step with every other jurisdiction and the NFA, and is something Mr Elliott could fix)
 Mr Dunstan acted outside the NFA (No.  If anything Mr Dunstan arguably used his firearm outside section 7A for the apparently trivial purpose of staying alive, but he was fully compliant with the NFA);
 "There is no intention to amend the genuine reasons provision" (We’re not asking Mr Elliott do that. We’re asking his government to amend 7A to allow for 'reasonable lawful excuse' so that courts can consider each matter on their circumstances and merit);  
 “… the use of a firearm in self-defence is a serious and lethal step which would not automatically protect the person from a criminal charge, despite the assertion they were defending themselves or their property” (Mr Dunstan was not charged with any offences, so Mr Elliott’s comments on this are not relevant);
 “In either case the use of a firearm is not endorsed as a means to self defend, given the potential lethality of a firearm, the risk to the person, the risk to any other person in the vicinity (including the criminal) in a highly volatile and emotionally fraught moment. The risk of escalating the violence is extreme” (Anyone who says this should not be allowed near guns ...); 
 “We also trust in our police to come to our aid and our criminal justice system to prosecute offenders and hold them to account for their actions” (Except that the police are 45 minutes away from Mr Dunstan’s property, and according Mr Dunstan, sometimes don't turn up to intruder calls. If you are going to wait for the NSW Police to come to protect you from a druggie with a knife, you will be dead by the time the police arrive)
Mr Elliott’s response is remarkable. It suggests the better outcome would have been for Mr Dunstan to have been dead, rather than be proactive and stay alive. 
… which is ironic given Mr Elliott was a captain in the army ….

Climate change driving entire planet to dangerous 'tipping point‘ Scientists "don’t think people realize how little time we have left,” to stop irreversible and disastrous changes to Earth’s climate systems.

EVIDENCE THAT IRREVERSIBLE changes in Earth’s climate systems are underway means we are in a state of planetary emergency, leading climate scientists warn. A cascade of tipping points could amount to a global tipping point, where multiple earth systems march past the point of no return, they say.
That possibility is “an existential threat to civilization,” write Tim Lenton and colleagues in this week’s Nature.
Such a collapse of Earth’s systems could lead to “hothouse earth” conditions with a global temperature rise of 9 degrees F (5 degrees C), sea levels rising 20 to 30 feet, the complete loss of the world’s coral reefs and the Amazon forest, and with large parts of the planet uninhabitable.
A global emergency response is required to limit warming to 2.7 degrees Fahrenheit (1.5 degrees Celsius), they warn. “The stability and resilience of our planet is in peril,” they say.
“It’s a nasty shock that tipping points we thought might happen well into the future are already underway,” says Lenton in an interview.

The National Climate Emergency Summit.

The evidence is clear. The world is standing at the edge of major ecological and humanitarian tipping points, and time has run out for half measures.

Thoughts for the Week.
For forty years, the Billionaire George Sorus has spent millions supporting ‘Gun Control Australia’, ‘Get Back’ ‘Friends of the ABC’ to promote his socialist, disarmament appeasement and to that end has installed his puppets on both sides of Parliament. He has paid the media to make Australians believe that they have No Rights, No meaningful Constitution and No protections under the law of the land. He has weaponized his vast wealth to erode those rights in every corner of the country by supporting anti-rights initiatives and anti-firearm politicians. He has waged a war on people who have committed no crimes, harmed nobody and merely wish to be left alone to mind their own business. Now, they are making the move to re-categorise Straight Pull, Bolt Action Shotguns and Rifles. By making them a different category most firearm owners will not be able to retain or apply for them.

They have Border Force (Gestapo) refusing entry into Australia of firearms on the pretext that there is a crimp in the magazine, (press metal magazine are impossible to make without crimping of some sort) and serial numbers that are not the size that they have dictated. Aside from George Sorus buying and selling our universities, media and political parties we have his twin socialist hero’s buying Australian real estate, electrical companies, water supplies, and bribing our political parties. These Chinese businessmen are not super smart entrpreneurial capitalists, behind everyone of them is the slave state monolith of the Communist Chinese Government.

China have been programming the heads of our government since Gothic Prime Minister Gough Whitlam and even if we don’t believe that Prime Minister Harold Holt was taken away from Portsea on the 17th November 1967 by a Chinese submarine, China was the greatest beneficiary, as we have had “Wimps Are Us” for Prime Ministers ever since. Since the signing of the Lima Agreement we have born the cost, given away our manufacturing and production, (even food is being imported from China) given away our security as an independent nation and if China has a little cough, our politicians Kow Tow in submission.

In 2015 the Australian Security Intelligence Organisation (ASIO) reportedly warned the major political parties that two of Australia’s most generous donors had “strong connections to the Chinese Communist Party” and that their “donations might come with strings attached”. In December 2017, an unsourced report in The Australian said ASIO had identified candidates at state and local government elections whom it believed had close ties to Chinese intelligence services “in what security officials assess as a deliberate strategy by Beijing to wield influence through Australian politics”. Most notoriously, a Labor Party senator, Sam Dastyari, was forced to retire after Fairfax Media revealed that he had recited Beijing’s South China Sea talking points while standing alongside a Chinese citizen donor – and then counselled the donor to place his phone aside to avoid surveillance of their conversation.

According to ‘The Australian’, China’s security chief, Meng Jianzhu, warned the Labor leadership about the electoral consequences of failing to endorse a bilateral extradition treaty: “Mr Meng said it would be a shame if Chinese government representatives had to tell the Chinese community in Australia that Labor did not support the relationship between Australia and China.”

“We shall see how the counsels of prudence and restraint may become the prime agents of mortal danger; how the middle course adopted from desires for safety and a quiet life may be found to lead direct to the bull’s-eye of disaster.”
Winston Churchill, The Gathering Storm

Is ‘Appeasement’ Treason? 2
Here we are 20 million people, defenceless, dependent on China for food, clothing and toilet paper, sitting on a continent that has a major section of the worlds resources. Already, the Australian people have very little say in the countries direction, just think for how long have the majority opposed the importation of illegal, unwanted, immigrants, refugees who are not really refugees but economic invaders, how long have the people called out for a government that would defend our borders.

“If you will not fight for the right when you can easily win without bloodshed; if you will not fight when your victory will be sure and not too costly; you may come to the moment when you will have to fight with all the odds against you and only a precarious chance of survival. There may even be a worse case. You may have to fight when there is no hope of victory, because it is better to perish than to live as slaves.”
Winston S. Churchill, The Gathering Storm

Chinese Concentration Camp, or re-education camp

A few months ago I became particularly interested in this Defence Subject when on watching a few minutes of the TV program ABC Drum, which has a panel of typical Bimbette’s, (No Bimbo’s as the ABC and SBS only have female experts on everything, except for the fraud Bruce Pascoe of course who follows their traditional suppression of the truth), where one of the Bimbette’s experts came out with one of those all knowing statements. “China, since its communist state began in 1949 has never invaded another country”. I immediately growled under my breath, tell that to the Tibetan, Vietnamese, Koreans, Indians, Xinjiang, otherwise known as East Turkestan, with a population of more than 20 million mostly Ugyhurs. Turkestan was independent till the Chinese invasion of 1949. Tell that to the brave Umbrella protestors in Hong Kong. They know that death awaits them eventually, but still protest and face gas and bullets with Umbrella’s. The islands between the Chinese Mainland and Taiwan have been the target for Chinese artillery for many years. They might also have forgotten the Spratley Islands that China has invaded and turned into armed installations is the territory of the Phillippines. So is this mis-information paid for purposely, orchestrated lies, or is it just ignorance perpetuated by the blind leading the blind?

The Spratley Islands are NOT Chinese Territory.

In the previous editions we have well covered the what is called China’s extraterritorial influence described variously as “United Front work” and “influence operations”. “sharp power”, and then to “Hard Power”.
In other countries, this process may begin with a Confucius Institute, scholarships, grants, but the next thing you know you must self-censor discussions China considers sensitive. In the face of this authoritarian onslaught of China’s misinformation, cyber hacking, bribery, economic coercion, theft of technology, and intrusion in internal politics. This seems to be the formula that has been so successfully used in Australia and has been even more successful in New Zealand.

“Delight in smooth-sounding platitudes, refusal to face unpleasant facts, desire for popularity and electoral success irrespective of the vital interests of the State, genuine love of peace and pathetic belief that love can be its sole foundation, obvious lack of intellectual vigour in both leaders of the British Coalition Government, marked ignorance of Europe and aversion from its problems in Mr. Baldwin, the strong and violent pacifism which at this time dominated the Labour-Socialist Party, the utter devotion of the Liberals to sentiment apart from reality, the failure and worse than failure of Mr. Lloyd George, the erstwhile great war-time leader, to address himself to the continuity of his work, the whole supported by overwhelming majorities in both Houses of Parliament: all these constituted a picture of British fatuity and fecklessness which, though devoid of guile, was not devoid of guilt, and, though free from wickedness or evil design, played a definite part in the unleashing upon the world of horrors and miseries which, even so far as they have unfolded, are already beyond comparison in human experience.”
Winston S. Churchill, The Gathering Storm

In my August Bulletin “Thoughts of the Week” to summarise I explained Australia’s lack of an adequate defence force, our lack of Defence Industries, the scenario of China building an Island base at Long Island, (Chesterfield Islands) and then moving on to Lord Howe Island. The inability and lack of interest for any other nation to move them. (As with the South China Sea Spratley Islands, the USA has not stepped in to throw China off the Islands that the Philippines claims as its territory) The probability that China dominating all of Australia’s sea and air ways would blockade, preventing the importation of fuel, or manufacturing materials, in less then 25 days diesel fuel and petrol would run out, food would not be delivered to the shops, Australia the land of plenty would starve. Australian politicians would surrender, do a deal and fly to the South of France. The Australian population being superfluous to the Chinese requirements would die out.

In my September Bulletin, “Thoughts of the Week” I showed how the Chinese Communist Party leadership massacred its own young people at Tiananmen Square and supplied a speech from Chief of General Staff and Vice -Chairman China’s Military Commission Comrade Chi Haotian stating that they are preparing the way for world domination. Australia is a part of that world and is one of China’s main targets.

“ If China’s global development will necessitate massive deaths in enemy countries; will our people endorse that scenario? Will they be for or against it? The fact is, our ‘development’ refers to the great revitalization of the Chinese nation, which, of course, is not limited to the land we have now but also includes the whole world.
Only countries like the United States, Canada and Australia have the vast land to serve our need for mass colonization.”

Over 2 million men in the Chinese Army, Does that mean every Australian Firearm Owner needs only to shoot once?

In the October Bulletin Thoughts of the Week. I included photos of the October 1st 70th Anniversary Parade in Beijing (of the Communist take over) where the Chinese Government showed off its military technological superiority over the United States and quoted the Chinese President Xi Jinping, delivered a speech invoking the “Chinese dream” of national rejuvenation, his grand vision of restoring the country to his perceived past glory.

“No force can stop the Chinese people and the Chinese nation forging ahead.”

“There is no force that can shake the foundation of this great nation,” Xi said

“Unity is iron and steel; unity is a source of strength,” Xi said, according to an English-language transcript from the Ministry of Foreign Affairs.

There is an Obvious Pattern Forming Surrounding Australia.
Besides taking over the Spratley Islands and turning it into a Chinese Military Base with airports and manufacturing a deep water port facilities it claims the 200 miles of territorial waters around it. China has leased the Port of Darwin on our mainland. It leases two airports in Western Australia. China was within an inch of formalising a 75 year lease on the Island of Tulagi. Tulagi is in the Solomon Island on the northern edge of the Coral Sea. The deal would allow the communist country authority rights to the island’s deep water port, oil, gas, fishing, forestry and tourism.
Though the plan for a 75-year lease was unsuccessful, another of China’s plans was recently executed. A $825 million deal was struck to allow China to redevelop the Solomon Islands’ Gold Ridge mine. Chinese ambassador Xue Bing, described the deal as an “early harvest”.
Along with the profits from the mine, all port facilities, roads, rail and bridges built to service it will also remain in China’s control.


A former intelligence chief of the US Navy’s Pacific Fleet, Captain Jim Fanell, said that China’s interest in the area could have future impacts on Australia. “They’re (China) interested in this area because it’s essentially the lifeline or the choke point between America and Australia and New Zealand,” he said. “China has built the navy that people said they were never going to build. China has deployed their fleet to places which they said they were never going to sail to and they are sending their fleets around the world.”. “They believe that they’re supposed to be the rightful leaders of this new global order. The British century, the American century, now we’re going to have the Chinese century. That’s their vision.”

“With the flip at Kiribati and the Solomons, and what they’re doing in Vanuatu, what they’re doing in Fiji, you start to see a trend line here,” China quite clearly wants to dominate East Asia and the Pacific, pushing out the U.S. as the region’s dominant military power. Shortly, China will hold an invaluable base controlling the approach to Australia, and if the Solomon Islands borrow from China to pay for ports and other facilities and default, they could open the door for untrammelled military development.

“John Adams said infamously, “that a way to subjugate a country is through either the sword or debt”. China has chosen the latter,”

Captain Fanell, above quote appears to be the proof of it. As well as the Chinese building a deep water port in Fiji and Kiribati large enough for Aircraft Carriers, they have recently gained full control of the Sri Lanka Port of Hambantota. Under heavy pressure and after months of negotiations with the Chinese, the government handed over the port and 15,000 acres of land around it for 99 years. The large Chinese loans, inability of the Sri Lankan government to service the loans, and subsequent 99-year Chinese lease on the port have led to accusations that China was practising debt trap diplomacy.

Chinese Submarines have already began to call in for re supply visits The transfer gave China control of territory just a few hundred miles off the shores of a rival, India, and a strategic foothold along a critical commercial and military waterway. During the 2015 Sri Lankan elections, large payments from the Chinese port construction fund flowed directly to campaign aides and activities for Mr. Rajapaksa, who had agreed to Chinese terms at every turn and was seen as an important ally in China’s efforts to tilt influence away from India in South Asia. The payments were confirmed by documents and cash checks detailed in a government investigation. It took control of Nigeria’s Tin-Can Island Container Terminal (TICT)


The String of Pearls is a geopolitical theory on potential Chinese intentions in the Indian Ocean region. It refers to the network of Chinese military and commercial facilities and relationships along its sea lines of communication, which extend from the Chinese mainland to Port Sudan in the Horn of Africa. The sea lines run through several major maritime choke points such as the Strait of Mandeb, the Strait of Malacca, the Strait of Hormuz, and the Lombok Strait as well as other strategic maritime centres in Pakistan, Sri Lanka, Bangladesh, the Maldives, and Somalia. Chinese-controlled deep-water port near the mouth of the Persian Gulf in Gwadar, Pakistan, which is also the crux of China’s massive $62 billion China Pakistan Economic Corridor project. The port at Gwadar, which is connected to the Karakoram Highway linking Western China and the Arabian Sea, is and should be a concern for the Australian government and an even greater concern to the Indian government, which should view it as powerful evidence of Chinese and Pakistani collusion against Indian security and economic interests.


90% of Japan’s imported oil flows to Japan through the sea lanes of the South China Sea, and any undue Chinese influence in the region is seen as a potential threat to Japanese economic security. Moreover, Japanese officials envision that, in the case of a more pervasive Chinese power projection capability in East Asia, territorial disputes between China and Japan in the East China Sea and Philippine Sea might escalate to a point of outright military confrontation. In particular, the Senkaku, which is claimed by China but controlled by Japan, and Ryukyu island chains, are identified as key friction points between the two countries.

“Strength, moreover, could have been used in righteous causes with little risk of bloodshed. In their loss of purpose, in their abandonment even of the themes they most sincerely espoused, (Australia) Britain, France, and most of all, because of their immense power and impartiality, the United States, allowed conditions to be gradually built up which led to the very climax they dreaded most. They have only to repeat the same well-meaning, short-sighted behaviour towards the new problems which in singular resemblance confront us to-day to bring about a third convulsion from which none may live to tell the tale.”
Winston S. Churchill, The Gathering Storm

Bougainville is another hot spot where China has been financing an independence movement, to break away from Papua New Guinea. Apparently, if the Independence movement succeeds in the current elections there is no doubt where the finance will come from to re-open the huge reserves left in Panguna (copper) mine. Given the new strategic landscape, between the retreating USA (America First movement) we can bet that Bougainville will have new deep port facilities very quickly.


While relations between Timor-Leste and Australia remain strained, because of Australia’s 2004 bugging of its cabinet office, the young nation, on half an island just 720 kilometres from Darwin, has asked China to help train its Navy. The request was made by Timor-Leste’s defence and security minister, Filomeno Paixao, at talks this month with Rear Admiral Yu Wenbing of the People’s Liberation Army Navy. The talks took place during the visit to Dili of a Chinese warship and are an unsettling reminder to Canberra of Beijing’s growing military influence very close to home. The request for China to train Timorese naval officers was confirmed by a local defence source.

The officers and crew of the 5,548-tonne Qi Jiguang, a Type 679 training ship, received a gala welcome as the vessel was escorted into Dili Harbour by the Timorese patrol boat Kay Rala Xanana. The Shanghai-class patrol boat is one of two purchased from China by Timor-Leste in 2008 to protect its ocean fishery. Dili regards strengthening bilateral cooperation and economic and defence ties with Beijing as a useful hedge against what some in the government consider undue influence and pressure from the West, including from Australia.
China, which has poured money into East Timor in recent years, has financed everything from the presidential palace to a $490 million deep-water port near Dili to an electricity grid that has given power to at least 80 percent of the population. And it has also spent a significant amount of cash near the proposed location of the on-shore part of the Greater Sunrise project, known as Tasi Mane. China has built the first leg of a new four-lane highway linking the airport in Suai with other southern coastal towns that will host the LNG plant, a petrochemical refinery and a supply base. And in April, state-owned company Timor Gap signed a $943 million contract with a China Railway Construction Corp. unit for a new port to help facilitate the main LNG plant. China signed a contract providing US$9 million toward the building of a new headquarters for the military in East Timor.

For a long time, China has been eyeing the Australian Antarctic Territory, a large portion of the Antarctic that by Canberra’s definition belongs to us. In 1951, Australia and a group of interested other countries signed a document called the Antarctic Treaty System.
Australia claimed six million square kilometres of the icy continent — around 42 per cent of its total land. The Treaty recognised the sovereignty claims of Australia. However, this is not recognised by China, who were not signatories to this treaty, and they don’t recognise Australia’s claims.
Over the past decade, China has slowly been expanding its reach in Antarctica by creating networks of stations in Australia-claimed territory.


Dr Adam Lockyer, a security expert at Macquarie University and author of Australia’s Defence Strategy:
Evaluating Alternatives for a Contested Asia. Dr Lockyer said there are several reasons for China’s interest in the region. “For one thing, it’s part of their broader strategy for global domination. The rising superpower is increasing its presence everywhere, from South America to the South Pacific.”
Similar to its pursuits in the South China Sea, China is seeking to increase its influence, but fall just short of sparking an actual military conflict with the United States and its allies.

China says its outposts on the Antarctic region are purely for scientific purposes. But they could also potentially be used to aid the country militarily.“Beijing can make legitimate claims that the installations and outposts on the Antarctic are for scientific purposes, and you can’t argue with that,” Dr Lockyer explained. “The fear is that they have a dual use, and that is that they can be used in a confrontation with the US.” But also, the region could prove hugely lucrative, holding large deposits of natural resources.

“The US and China’s use of their Antarctic ground stations to control offensive weapons systems and relay signals intelligence, all while conducting legitimate scientific activity has the potential to shift the strategic balance that has maintained peace in the Asia-Pacific for nearly 70 years. “In a time of conflict, if the US denied others access to GPS, China and Russia could employ BeiDou and GLONASS to guide strike weapons.”
China and Russia currently rely on GPS, but these host satellites are all controlled by the US. This means that, in the event of a conflict, America’s first tactic would be to switch these all off, leaving China blind and lost.
This is why China and Russia are working to build their own network of navigation satellites. One of the best places to communicate with those satellites is Antarctica. China’s BeiDou and Russia’s GLONASS are navigation systems. They’re not actually weapons, but they can be used to guide cruise missiles and ballistic missiles to different parts of the world.

But Dr Lockyer says it’s worrying Canberra doesn’t seem too concerned about China’s possible ulterior motives. “The Australian government doesn’t seem too concerned about it,” said Dr Lockyer. “They very rarely turn around and look at what’s going on in Antarctica.” “It’s like they forgot to lock the backdoor.”

It is highly unlikely that the government forgot to lock the back door, or the front door, but seem to be locked into a silent panic. They can feel the noose tightening, but are petrified of speaking out about it, or heaven forbid, announcing general conscription and a re-armament plan. The Australian government could not ignore the lack of fortitude of the USA in the loss of the Philippines territorial islands in the South China Sea. The Philippines are hardly going to declare war on China, so China moves a thousand miles closer to Australia. When China can take the Australian Territory in Antarctica and no one says, boo to them, when they can take Lord Howe Island and place a few aircraft carriers and a few hundred missiles, will anyone say, boo then?


Some experts say two years, I would hope for three years, but watching the Chinese advances in technology and organised power play on the international chess board they will choke the life out of Australia in four years or sooner.
We quickly need a re-incarnated Winston S. Churchill to awaken the people and re-arm our nation. If we do not find one, our future and the future of our children will be at best death, or worst slavery, or worst still, like the million incarcerated Uyghur (wigger people) who are just hosts for the “Body Part” market. We need new secret weapons. Weapons like their underwater drones that can be unmanned and still sink their landing ships. We have to make our own fighting drones that can beat the Chinese ones. We have to have Sovereign Industries that produce our defence products without relying on imports as without Air and Sea superiority re-supply will be impossible. Do not look for anyone to come and help us they have too much to lose. The Chinese need ‘living space” and we in Australia are up for grabs. We need leaders who forget to mention Global Warming or Gun Control. We need leaders who can re-kindle this ancient spirit, and put fire in our bellies. As it seems our future is going to be a lot harder, before if ever, it gets better.
Sir Winston S Churchill inspired nations with his use of his words and actions.
“We shall not flag or fail. We shall go on to the end. We shall fight in France, we shall fight on the seas and oceans, we shall fight with growing confidence and growing strength in the air, we shall defend our island, whatever the cost may be. We shall fight on the beaches, we shall fight on the landing grounds, we shall fight in the fields and in the streets, we shall fight in the hills; we shall never surrender”.

Australia’s famous poet Henry Lawson, created similar nationalistic emotions with his choice of words. Albeit at a slower pace but the intent to arise, unite and prepare to fight for your country is very strong.
Every Man Should Own a Rifle.
“So I sit and write and ponder, while the house (parliament) is deaf and dumb,
Seeing visions “over yonder” of the war I know must come.
In the corner – not a vision – but a sign for coming days
Stand a box of ammunition and a rifle in green baize.
And in this, the living present, let the word go through the land,
Every tradesman, clerk and peasant should have these two things at hand.

No – no ranting song is needed, and no meeting, flag or fuss –
In the future, still unheeded, shall the spirit come to us!
Without feathers, drum or riot on the day that is to be,
We shall march down, very quiet, to our stations by the sea.
While the bitter parties stifle every voice that warns of war,
Every man should own a rifle and have cartridges in store!”
By Henry Lawson.

That was how patriots felt in the 20th Century and I admit, that is the Century that I’m from, so even with my old bones and creaky body, I would get a truck load of ammo and my rifle to my station by the sea. I might not be very mobile, (it does make running away improbable) but I can still shoot better than most, but would I have anyone on either side of me? I might have to shout into the distant past of history, to find a new Horatius to help guard the Gate. Ron Owen

We have left it too late for any half arsed measures to stabilise climate change! There is no time left for changing from coal power to solar, we can't wait that long & the government will not do it anyway! You want to do something NOW? Then turn off your coal powered electricity to your home, because when climate change gets worse I think the grid will go down anyway!

Climate Change Survival Here & Now!

The sun going down yesterday, it looked the same coming up this morning.

Climate Change Survival Here & Now!
Whilst the climate change skeptics & deniers carry on with their normal lives completely oblivious to what is happening in the rest of the world, people like myself face each day with trepidation.  It is still spring time here in New England NSW Australia, yet the temperature outside yesterday was 45 degrees, 35 degrees in the shade, that is far hotter than our normal summer temperatures here. Not far away there are catastrophic bushfires, & we are enveloped in smoke, so much so that even without the extreme heat I could not work outside.
Cattail Pond is barely visible through the smoke from the bushfires.

We have had to change our gardening methods; everything now must be under shade cloth to stop it from burning. Unfortunately that does not stop the possums from eating our garden due to the fact that they are suffering from a shortage of food in the forest. Our forest trees are dying rapidly, Cattail Pond is almost dry, & we are running low on drinking water in our tanks. Frankly I find this all pretty scary, I have fought raiders & bushfires in the past, I have been attacked by feral dogs, wild bulls, buffalo, wild boar & people, but none of that was as daunting to me as climate change is now, because to be honest, I have no idea whether or not we can survive this!
The people should be out on the streets protesting this, & although I know many actually are, there are simply not enough to make any difference. I honestly think that in the not too distant future there will be more people protesting, & I think that these protests will no longer be peaceful. I think that just like in Japan right now, these protests are going to turn very violent. Unfortunately it too will not make any difference, because our corrupt Australian government has too much invested in mining/drilling/fracking, burning & selling fossil fuels. They are perfectly prepared to see climate change cause TEOTWAWKI & then possibly a mass extinction event just for their own short term monetary gain.
That makes no sense? No it doesn’t, I have no idea where they think they will be able to spend their money. I suppose they must have plans in place, a doomsday bunker, or perhaps first a move overseas where the climate is not quite so bad as in Australia. Have they no concerns for their children & their grandchildren? It would appear not, just like the cigarette tobacco executives, so long as they are making money they will lie to the public regarding the dangers & perhaps even allow their own children to smoke!
So what can we do as a minority? Well nothing I guess. The only thing we can do is prepare for what is coming. Make plans for leaving the city when things get really bad, better still leave the city now & live off grid. But even living off grid is no guarantee of survival. We can’t live without water, the nearest town to me has already run out of water, & the nearest small city is on water restrictions with no rain forecast for at least the next six months. Is that going to be six months of 45 degrees of heat?! Yesterday I spoke for the first time to my wife about the possibility of having to move from Australia, I mean if we are getting conditions like this in New England, then where else in Australia would it be any better? Maybe something will happen; perhaps the winds of change will blow something else our way. Perhaps TEOTWAWKI will be survivable & this will be the end of fossil fuels in Australia. Perhaps.
Take care out there & keep prepping.
