How Powerful Is That Minority That Wants A Carbon Tax?

7 Apr

Barnaby Joyce has written an article for the Australian Conservative, posing a question that regular readers all know the answer to (my emphasis added):

David Murray, outgoing Chairman of the Future Fund has blasted the carbon tax as the worst piece of economic reform he has ever seen.

So if the unions don’t like it, big business doesn’t like it, manufacturing doesn’t like it, farmers don’t like it, the electorate pathologically hates it, well the question then is who actually wants it? And how powerful is that minority? Where is the constituency that wants this tax? In Warrego on the weekend, out of 20,000 votes, the Greens received only 325. Maybe this is an example of how toxic these types of green policies have become.

The Labor party have tried to change the name to make the tax more palatable. First it was a tax to deal with global warming, then it was a tax to deal with climate change and now it is a tax for clean energy. What’s next? The happy pet tax? The peace in our time tax? It’s all the same, it’s an insane and very economically dangerous bureaucratic rip off.

Read the whole article here.

    O/T a bit, but I’m beginning to understand where Clive Palmer is coming from ––What-s-Obama-Really-Doing-Here-..

    This nefarious global network is precisely what Slaughter is promoting in her writings, constituting what she admittedly calls a “New World Order” for enabling global governance. For those that take the time to examine who is behind the “NGOs, universities, think tanks, churches, civic groups, political activists, Facebook groups” Slaughter refers to, they will find corporations like Exxon, Dyncorp, Goldman Sachs, Lockheed Martin, Boeing, Raytheon, Rothschild, Halliburton, Bechtel, BP, and many others.

    Could anyone seriously accept corporations that are responsible for the worst chapters in modern human history as the architects of a system of global governance and ultimately our future? With the power and wealth they wield, how would they be held accountable? They have the ability to literally buy politicians on both sides of every election from one side of the planet to the other with bottom-lines that eclipse many national GDPs – they do so in a process that is streamlined with the creation of supranational entities like the European Union, North American Union, ASEAN and others. Already the EU is proclaiming dictates each member state is beholden to, with supranational law superseding national and local laws.

    It is a bleak future indeed, one where true freedom is replaced with the mere illusion of it. Pragmatism and self-reliance is replaced with trips to the ballot box to pick from a variety of bought-off, ineffectual, self-serving crooks serving a degenerate global oligarchy.

    Policy is already being produced not by the people but by corporate-funded think-tanks that then market it to the public through their control of the mainstream media. Their system is refined down to a science – their system is now merely being replicated, nation to nation. The solution to this problem is obvious. If the power truly lies with these corporations, the very foundation upon which Slaughter’s “New World Order” rests, undermining these corporations through full-spectrum boycotts and the systematic replacement of their goods and services on a local level shifts that power back into the people’s hands – pragmatically, not politically. It is a solution as elegant as it is simple and one that is impossible to commandeer as the globalists have done with so many attempted political solutions in the past.

    There is no doubt now, with daily affirmations coming from the global elite themselves that their “New World Order” is coming. There is no doubt, as exemplified in Libya, that they are willing to murder on vast scales to eliminate any obstruction to their designs. There is no doubt, after the corporate-financiers have just helped themselves to trillions of taxpayers’s dollars to cover their collapsing pyramid schemes that they are far from the progressive “international order” they claim to represent. There is no doubt that now is the time to act. There is absolutely no justification for buying another Pepsi, Coke, Big Mac, or Starbucks and further empowering this modern day empire. What we have been taught are the features of a civilized society are in fact the padded, gilded shackles of our enslavement. There is absolutely nothing the global corporatocracy can do that people can’t do better locally. The only barrier is ambition, education, and a shift in our collective paradigm to see ourselves, not some elected savior, as the ultimate solution to our problems.

    The fulfillment of Slaughter’s depraved vision of the future rests entirely in our hands. It will be determined day by day, depending on how we choose to spend our resources, time, attention, and energy. The simple decision to buy or produce locally rather than patronize Walmart, Starbucks, or any number of other globalist consumer feeding troughs as an individual may seem futile, but a shift in our collective actions and paradigm will undoubtedly derail this ignoble future that awaits us.

      Thank You Kevin for saying so succinctly what I have been alluding to for many months.

      To put it simply, “Houston, we have a problem”…. We have a mega problem baked into our societal cake. Corruption of the monetary system, which bleeds into our political system, which bleeds into our day-to-day economic system,, which bleeds into our local communities. ……..and so on, and so on…..

      James Dines (The Dines Letter) who’s been around markets and geopolitics for many decades has an interesting take on the root cause of the problems we are being confronted with these days. It’s got something to do with the corruption of the currencies. Here’s the link if you’re interested….

      Is the problem the banking elite and their fiat fantasy currencies, or the corrupt politicians they support, or the corporations that grow up around this structure, or perhaps, ALL OF THE ABOVE!!!

      And thanks for the links. I’ll check them out..

      Dear Kevin,
      First I should acknowledge that your understanding, of the root causes of our financial and political woes, by far, exceeds mine. I am a 59 year old man who purchased a computer for the first time 3 months ago. I had long ago given up looking for truthful reporting, on any topic of importance, within mainstream media. With the possible exception of sections of the Australian newspaper.

      Since my recent “discovery” of the internet (thanks to Al Gore’s wonderful “invention”) I have been trying to educate myself about the powers who control the financial/political systems of the world.

      My findings, to date, are frightening, to say the least. The Rothschilds, Rockefellers and their Bilderberg cohorts appear to have a vice-like grip on, practically, all of our financial and political (both sides) institutions.

      I am particularly, concerned about the, stealth-like, implementation of the United Nation’s Agenda 21. Otherwise known as “Sustainable Development”,”Social Justice” etc.

      I, like you, have considered what actions, if any, can be taken to defeat, or at least halt, the march toward this “One World Government” that is their obvious, even stated , goal.

      Your suggestion of boycotts, while noble in intent, would, I fear, have little effect. The “Powers” behind this scurrilous movement act like a serpent, which is entangled throughout all institutions of society.

      Boycotts would attack the tail of “The Serpent” but would do little to stop it. That can only be achieved by the cutting off of the head. That is, by removing “The Serpent’s” influence from the Nation’s decision making body.

      Public awareness, through sites like this one, commentary, from people like you, talking to our friends and neighbours, annoying/enlightening our politicians and other appropriate actions are, I believe, our best hope of saving our freedom, our present and our future.

      Best Wishes,

        I had to be persuaded to get a computer not that long back myself. I killed the first one as i got very frustrated trying to make it work.
        The post above was just one I found that I thought was of enough interest to put here. I would take the christian approach to the solving of all problems – the forgiveness of debts and absolutely no charging of interest.
        The Serpent is mentioned in Isaiah 9:15 – “The elder and the lifted of face,he is the head;and the prophet who teaches lies he is the tail.”

        This site has is good to explore. I learned here about the gold fringed flag and its meaning [military] and I noticed not long back the NSW commissioner of police on the dais with a gold fringed flag beside him.

      Having read Juliar’s address to the Lowy Institue (where else) you’d have to conclude that she has New World Order written all over her.

      What a worry….

      And if she says “for our children and our childrens’ children” one more time….. need I remind anyone that SHE has NO CHILDREN.

    There can be only one explanation these days for the Gillard government’s perception that the carbon tax is so widely and strongly supported……

    Correct me if I’m out of line here, but……..

    I have the pervasive feeling that we are all being jerked off by the pollies. bankers, union officials, bureaucrats, media, economists, military analysts, “Think Tank Types”, and I’ve just about had a gutfull of it…..

    These people are the adult versions of the type of nerds and dorks we all knew at school. Geeky nerds who wrote the Students Uniion Political Journal. Dorks who wanted to be the Head of the Students Union…..You know,….. TOTAL DICKHEADS!!!

    These days, they’re the Prime Minister, or the Treasurer, or the Member for Lyne(Rob Oakshott) or the guy in Melbourne for The Greenies, Adam Bandt…

    Give me a break… Just because they’re organised. and politically motivated, doesn’t mean these DICKHEADS have the right to inject themselves into a political debate, unless, of course, they have children, or they have worked in a “Non Government Job” or they havpe run a business and paid other people’s salaries and benefits, and paid payroll tax and BAS and Workers Comp. and Long Service Leave and Sick Leave. and 17.5% Holiday Loading, ,,,,,,,are you getting my drift??? If you haven’t put up, then Shut the …. Up and get out of the way of the productive sector of society.

      They will never get out of the way. They, like anybody else, can never have enough money & while a corrupt monetary system gives them all the ‘money’ they ask for & more, they will never offer to get out of the way.

      To answer your question from your previous comment, it is all of the above but what you need to understand is a private bank, even Rothschild, can never force you to accept their shoddy credit in payment of debt. While banking elites make out like bandits under the current corrupt system, ultimately it is the government you vote for that enables the current corrupt system to endure, until the day it doesn’t.

      • Tomorrows Serf April 8, 2012 at 8:35 am #

        Thanks for your comment JMD.

        But we’re meandering back to the “chicken & the egg” debate, and I think you know my thoughts therein. We’ll have to agree to disagree.

        And as far as the “current corrupt (monetary) system enduring until the day it doesn’t”, well, methinks it may not be too distant in the future to see that day arrive.

        Happy Easter. I’m off for a ride up the coast.

          They end up as educated dickheads – Rhodes scholars and the like – unable to know the difference between bullshit and truth.

          Their ‘superior education’ teaches them to believe they are superior in a psycopathic sense. Pride!

    I just came across this political party – never heard of it before.

    TAPP is the only Political Party in the World to stand up to the implementation of a “New World Order” by Power hungry Elite Globalist’s TAPP has great knowledge that their agenda is to create a cashless society implementing draconian laws and stripping away the People’s common Law rights and creating a “One World Government” through the United Nations. Everyday we see their evil plans uncovered by the controlled mainstream media bit by bit your civil Liberties are being stripped away So Every Australian is immediately required to make a decision between debt controlled slavery in perpetuity-or the age of prosperity. Both are eminently possible, one we will have. Which one? Now rely on your gut feeling, ignore the controlled media propaganda — it’s owned by your would-be masters, but decide now between perpetual slavery or the age of prosperity.

    “When a Nation loses its Sovereignty and the rest of the world watches, at this point I know that Tyranny has played its hand.”
    – PJ Jackson
    We will also defend the Australian way of life and culture from individuals or groups of who wish to destroy it.
    Our government in Australia has the right to print its own money and instead chooses to borrow from overseas banks at high interest. We the people have to pay this debt back in the form of income tax which in 2011 was $63 Billion.

    We are rich in resources in the Country but unfortunately many of our mines are now owned by overseas interest that only pay approximately 18% tax and are robbing Australians blind of our natural wealth yet Australians can pay up to almost 50% in Income tax.
    Don’t we all own the resources under OUR land?
    NO! The Government owns all the mineral rights and in turn the United Nations and World Banks control our Government.
