Our Position Regarding the Katter (Australian) Party

Members ask: what is our attitude to Bob Katter's "Australian Party", specifically with respect to the upcoming Queensland election?

This was a matter discussed at length at our recent State Meeting and is deserving of clarification.

Supporters of the Australia First Party, and readers of this blog, will be aware that we have specific criticisms of the Katter group.

We are very clear about the policies and positions that we believe to be critically important for Australia's future. Our members and supporters would not be part of Australia First if they were not similarly clear that the ultraliberal, globalising order simply has to go if our nation is to have any future at all. As such, we do not compromise on what we firmly believe to be matters of vital principle. This does not mean we are inflexible, merely that our focus is clear. We have a job to do.

There are some policies espoused by the Katter group that worry us.  In particular, we do condemn the Katter view that immigration should be continued to increase Australia’s population. This can only be done with Third World migrants who cannot be assimilated to Australia without Australia being assimilated to them. Immigration has had its day. To say otherwise is dangerous and foolish and is a fundamental difference between us.

However it is also our view that the supporters of Katter's party, and most likely Katter himself, have only honourable intentions to see rural Australia put right to the advantage of Australia. Any differences in our platforms are, accordingly, due not to differences in our devotion to Australia, but in precisely how we understand the nature of the problem our nation faces. It is our view that certain troubling Katter policies are most likely due to a perception that the problems we face are merely problems of policy which require "tweaking".

We know differently. Our problem is an alien ideology imposed on our nation by very malignant and entirely self-serving forces, none of which have our nation's interests at heart in any way. Whereas we know this ideology has to be deconstructed and broken before change is possible, those who believe in "tweaking" and fine-tuning the system naturally do not have a clear, unified approach but instead are liable to believe in a patchwork-quilt of policy positions that each independently seem reasonable. This does not make them people of bad conscience in any sense whatsoever, and, without surrendering our principles in any way, we can certainly work with such people for the common interests of our nation.

On a practical level, due to the constraints of the electoral registration process, it is unlikely that Australia First will have completed a successful state registration application before the Queensland election, an election which rumour has it might well be called early.

We are not "wreckers". It is not our intention to see Bob Katter, whatever his faults, fail and the Liberal/Labor system succeed at his expense.

As is already our stated policy, we encourage independents to challenge the parties of the system at this and every election. It is not a stretch to include in this definition those parties, such as Katter's, which we fully hope will be proved to be genuinely independent of the system. Australia First therefore intends at the next election to endorse any number of candidates such as we might find upon investigation to be worthwhile and who have Australia's interests at heart. It is likely we will also recommend a vote for Bob Katter ahead of the Liberal/Labor system as part of this.

As we always remind our supporters and voters in general, there is no point whatsoever in a vote for Labor or Liberal (LNP) at this or any future election. Do not be taken in by LNP rhetoric to the effect that a vote for LNP is essential to get rid of Anna Bligh. This is their scam, a long-running trick worthy of any sideshow hustler. Don't fall for it.

At the upcoming Queensland state election, we feel that despite the real problems with Katter's policies, his members and supporters are good people whose hearts are in the right place. Accordingly, we recommend that a vote for the "Australian Party" is an acceptable alternative on this occasion.

Update: Christmas Party

Earlier this blog carried a notice regarding a Christmas party organised by a supporter of the Australia First Party in Brisbane.  As an update, the following has been received for publication and is reproduced accordingly:


CHRISTMAS PARTY ON 23rd of December Friday 6pm Venue to be notified on call

Please Come along and Clash Celebrative Cheers!

We would like to commend the supporter in question for his efforts in organising this event and hope he will be rewarded with a good attendance and positive 'vibe'.  If you are free on the date in question, please do join him in what promises to be a fun event and a night to remember.

A Christmas Event

A supporter in Brisbane advises that an informal Christmas social event is being organised and has asked that details be posted on the blogsite.

The event will take the form of a dinner party at a quality restaurant. Plans are flexible but the event may be held on either the 23rd or 24th, depending on what best suits those planning to attend. There is a possibility of holding the event in either Brisbane or Toowoomba, again dependent on the wishes of attendees.

The organiser hopes to see Toowoomba, Brisbane and Gold Coast members and supporters for what is planned to be a fun, informal night of pre-Christmas festivities and a chance to build a good social atmosphere and create camaraderie between local supporters. An excellent way to meet other like-minded people in your area!

The Globalising Order, Once Again, Teeters On The Edge Of Collapse

Editor's Note: the following was published in an internal document in November; while events described are not now so recent as when this was written, the information contained here is still of significance and accordingly is reproduced here in its original form.
- - -
Dr. Jim Saleam
The pathetic spectacle of Julia Gillard telling the G 20 Nations Summit to get tough on certain European countries in order to salvage globalist capitalism was worse than a case of the mouse that roared. It was also an example of the fear that has gripped the little sister of the leaders of the so-called western world.  All is not well in the fairytale ledger books of the bankers and the multinationals. Like three years ago, the system now teeters again on the edge of collapse.
The big alarm was sounded as the Greek state, facing bankruptcy, might default on its financial obligations. Obligations? And if Greece defaults, the Italy, then Spain, just as Ireland and Iceland all but did last year and the year before.
For the ignorant in their McMansions in suburban Australia, all this is far away and hard to understand. Yet, some Australians do understand – some business-people pushed to the wall by overseas competition, some farmers pushed off their land by the mining multinationals, towns threatened with water takeovers, students threatened by overseas student influxes. All these things are part of globalisation and some Australians have taken the road of resistance. Still, the great mass do not understand. Experience teaches and it is sure to show that the big tale of permanent economic progress and expansion in a globalised economy is also one big lie. It was an evil lie too that has killed off our farms, factories, and businesses and endangered our heritage as Australians. McMansion land opted out of it all for the dollars. These folk are our people too, even if we can be more than a little unhappy with their indolence or their self-interested greed, their veritable resignation from being Australian.
Right now, eyes are riveted on Greece.
For those of us who are students of politics, Greece presents an interesting model. The borders are cracking open and immigrant criminals flood the streets. If you resist you are called by the alien media a “far right extremist”. Unemployment rises. People don’t get paid. Businesses fold and anarchists try to incite street riots. The government rules by threats of force. All parties reveal themselves as parties of the regime, all bow to globalist money.
Into the maelstrom has come the Greek party ‘Golden Dawn’. I publish here an extract from a Greek newsmagazine. This is what is coming for Australia. For my part I wish the Greek party Golden Dawn the political victory they deserve:
“In July, reports in the Greek press citing information by the police and E.U. border-control organization FRONTEX revealed that neighbouring Turkey is about to release approximately 10,000 Asian illegal immigrants that were apprehended in Turkey en route to the European Union via the Greek-Turkish borders. Since the issue of unconstrained immigration from Asia has become a focal theme in Greece and in conjunction with the recession in the economy, these reports alarmed quite a few pundits that predict a "hot winter" within the Greek urban centres, due to the further increase of illegal aliens in the country lacking employment and shelter.
Dr. Nestor Kourakis, professor of criminology in Athens, in a recent university survey revealed the extent by which criminal rates have affected the daily lives of Athenian citizens. According to the survey, 85.1 percent of the residents in the centre of the city have been victimized by criminal action, and 76 percent state that they are afraid to live in their neighbourhoods. Moreover, 70 percent state that the police cannot do anything to assist them, and more than 50 percent say they should take the law into their own hands. The statistics reveal a situation that contains elements of social implosion not far away. The vast majority of the participants in the survey blame illegal immigration as the primarily factor for the criminal rates.
Far-right groups started patrolling in certain regions in Athens, the most notable one named "Golden Dawn." There are also many incidents of small-scale rioting and violence between different ethnic groups and attacks against immigrants that have surpassed the level of spontaneous violence and seem to be organized by competing centres of local criminal power aiming to control parts of the city's centre for reasons mostly related to narcotics contraband and the accumulation of capital through illicit means.”

The Ties That Bind -- Guest Post

  The 'Australian Financial Review' is a daily newspaper, not perhaps for those in the big end of town, but for those who, like this reader, would like to be.
     It adopts the usual trendy-left editorial stance of daily newspapers everywhere in Australia, pretending to be unaligned but treating any sort of principled position (such as nationalism) with contempt.
     On the inside back page (one of its opinion pages) on 17th November, the 'Fin' published a piece entitled "It's Time to Spell Out the Ties That Bind," by one Josh Frydenberg, who is described as the Federal Member for Kooyong, party affiliation not reported.
     Mr Frydenberg is on about the visit to Australia by the (negro) head of state of our esteemed ally, America. He starts by recounting our shared history, being on the same side in every stoush since World War I, win or lose.
     "For both nations," he lets us know, "democracy is our beacon, commerce is our creed and we share a fundamental belief in the power of the individual" - as long as the individual isn't a self-respecting human being, I suppose.
     He goes on to point out, quite rightly, that paying for "security" in the "Asia-Pacific region" is getting to be expensive for the American taxpayer.
     The article then makes a reference to the latest free-trade deal, before drifting off into frothy generalities.
     This reader is buggered if he can figure out what the 'Financial Review' means by it.
     Is it a warning that the Americans are apt to leave us in the lurch? Does it mean that we had better toe the American line more carefully in the dangerous days ahead? Or is it telling us that maybe we'd better suck up to China a bit, too?
     Maybe, in light of the supposed new defence deal whereby a small number of American marines are apparently to be stationed in Darwin, it is just one more bit of dust kicked into the air, in a futile attempt to confuse the Indonesians and the Chinese about what we would want American troops for.
     Australia pays a heavy price for American protection. The protection is there, no doubt about it. But like the protection of an alcoholic father or a mentally ill mother, it comes at a cost. We have to send troops to every ill-conceived American policy initiative that includes shooting at somebody. We have to accept sick American cultural values like multiculturalism and race-mixing. In this, of course, we are no different from Europe - although Turkey, Israel, Taiwan and Japan apparently do not have to accept racial pollution as a price of American protection. Maybe there is a difference there somewhere.
     Anyway, the story is accompanied by a nice piccie of Barack and Julia strolling arm-in-arm away from a couple of flags - no prizes for guessing which ones. Is there symbolism here? Are they leaving Australia and America behind and strolling into a Chinese future? Buggered if I know.
