middle and high income earners will be slugged – and critics of the tax say needlessly so.
Pensioners and low income earners will be over-compensated with a 20 per cent bonus in increased welfare payments above the cost of the tax.
Some middle and high income earners will get just a $3 tax cut, which the government has never included in its numbers for those in line to receive compensation.
Today is not a day to give up friends. Today is a day to say that we, the middle and high income earners will not be silenced.
Instead, we will not rest until decency returns to our economy – until the poor are inspired through life by the riches and prosperity that lie just ahead, and not the life they may want to live now. Until enterprise and family background are rewarded as they should be, and until we have meritocracy in our parliament, with a quota of seats in the senate apportioned to captains of industry, based on a fair, transparent, triennial assessment of weighted market capitalisation.
Until that days arrives. Tony Abbott’s prophecy remains operative. There will be blood.
Tony Tynan advised some media outlets in advance of a plan by a concerned citizen and member of our movement who was, in the words of the email:
“heading to Canberra next week to bring some rational thinking and logic into the climate debate”.
“Mr Wright plans to dress as Guy Fawkes and enter Parliament House with a suspect briefcase,” Mr Tynan wrote.
“He anticipates some sort of resistance from both Parliament House security and the Federal Government.”
What sounded to us like a pretty good plan for publicity has instead been attacked, and Tynan was forced to send an email soon afterwards “apologising” for his earlier email.
What was he apologising for? For helping the media cover an important story? For having his boss’s best interests in mind? We would have thought that if a media adviser didn’t act the way Tynan did, they should be thrown out of their job.
The protest was perfectly pitched. In the words of the media, bombs are “so hot right now”, and to use something already in the public consciousness to draw attention to something that isn’t in the public consciousness but should be (the bomb-like effects of the carbon tax) would seem to us to be straight from the textbook.
Show your support for Mr Tynan in the comments section below and let’s be clear that we will not be silenced.
Gerard Henderson has another corker today, highlighting the further take over of all parts of our lives by environmentalists and socialists.
He points to the series screening on the ABC, At Home with Julia, and says it doesn’t have anyone from the Greens party in it.
The problem with At Home with Julia is that it is not an equal opportunity political offender – because no Greens politicians make an appearance in any of the four episodes. In other words, Senator Bob Brown does not turn up.
Admittedly, the program has not been the propaganda piece that we might have feared. The revelation that Ju-Liar and her in-sin non-husband engaged in a sex act using our national flag as a sheet has exposed her desecration of our nation and raised questions of treason.
But the show is not completely right, and it takes a man like Henderson to hit the nail on the head of why.
At Home with Julia has become yet another taxpayer-funded program on the ABC that either criticises or laughs at Labor and the Coalition
This provides yet another example of the relative weakness of the conservative intellectual tradition in Australia. The British-based Barry Humphries or the American P. J. O’Rourke would see humour in the Greens. But there are few such comedians the world over and virtually none working in Australia.
Let's help cheer Gerard up after his latest column with some of the best anti-green jokes our movement has to offer!
It’s hard to disagree with much that Henderson says, but we do have to pick him up on a small point here, and that is that we conservatives are the intellectual tradition in Australia. Henderson himself could well be described as Australia’s philosopher in residence (although he would be too modest to admit it), Tony Abbott won a Rhodes Scholarship, and some of the best jokes going around are about environmentalists – Gerard himself often makes very amusing jokes on television and radio.
We’ll put some of the best here, but then throw it over to you to cheer Gerard up with some more anti-Green jokes in the comments section!
Q.What did the Green grape say to the Red grape?
A. Stop drinking so much cheap wine!
Q. What does Bob Brown’s answering machine say?
A. If you want to buy marijuana, press the hash key!
An environmentalist goes to the doctor and says “Doc I can’t stop singing The Green, Green Grass of Home.” The Doctor says “that sounds like Tom Jones syndrome.”
As Ronald Reagan said: “First they ignore you, then they laugh at you, then they fight you, then you win.”
Our opponents are fighting us at the moment and their weapon of choice is industrial-scale censorship.
Pravda gleefully tells the story of how the News Limited commentator Glenn Milne has been silenced for his attempt to blow the lid off a series of allegations which could bring down the Gillard government. As usual it was the lawyers and the cabal of other corrupt agents who were behind the silencing. Soon afterwards, the ABC dumped Mr Milne.
But as we know, Glenn Milne is not one to give up without a fight, and the government may have bitten off more than it can chew by taking him on!
We’ll be watching the developments of this case with interest.
Polling over many years has found that Alan Jones is the overwhelming favourite of Australians to become Governor-General. He showed why when he officially opened the peoples' parliament on the lawns of "Parliament House" today.
“This is the most disgraceful thing that has ever been done to democracy” said Alan Jones today. As is usually the case, he was dead right. But instead of stopping when challenged, the disgrace has rolled on.
Today was the culmination of the convoy of no confidence – a nationwide movement of the silent majority in Australia, organised in part by no-carbon-tax.org.
The overwhelming majority of the country were represented in Canberra by around 200 delegates who gathered on the lawns in front of Parliament House to call on the government to resign.
There were a number of outstanding warm-up acts – Tony Abbott appeared and kept the crowd warm in anticipation of the headline event – an address by Alan Jones. And when the headline came, the crowds were not disappointed.
A moment of reverence - Tony Abbott bows his head as Alan Jones takes centre stage.
Alan Jones brought news of 2km of trucks stopped at the border – unable to get into the Australian Capital Territory because the socialist police were keeping the protesters out.
The ACT police, (who you would think might have better things to do) were quick to deny this, and before long, the socialist media had pounced. The story was not about an entire nation in revolt and the establishment of a peoples’ parliament and the appointment of the Governor-General that Australia has always wanted.
Instead, it became an opportunity for the socialist media to attack the peoples’ Governor-General.
As organisers of the convoy, we had promised thousands of people and thousands of trucks. When we took a symbolic move to call upon only 200 hand-picked delegates to come to the lawns, we were called “failures”.
Instead of reporting on the outstanding performance given by Alan Jones, the media seized on the statement about people being prevented from coming into the protest.
What the socialist media don’t seem to be able to understand is that Alan Jones is not like them.
When he speaks about people being held up at the border he is using metaphor and imagery to channel the millions of Australians being held up on the wrong side of the border of prosperity by this government.
When Alan Jones speaks of democracy, it is not like you or me speaking about the subject – the man is democracy. Australians have fought and died for democracy. Those who attack it now should be dealt with in the same way as the attackers from decades past.
Democracy in stereo. Dennis Jensen MP is listening to the people. Will anyone else join him?
It is easy to get despondent about the march of Socialism in this country. We have business on our side, we have the Australian people on our side, but sometimes it can feel like even this won’t change government policy.
But just when those despondent thoughts feel like they’re taking over, along comes someone like Dennis Jensen MP to show us that the solutions are actually quite simple.
“A royal commission into that? It’s not sensible [...] I support more science, more research, not a royal commission.”
At no-carbon-tax.org we think we can have the best of both worlds. Why not a Royal Commission led by Australia’s most eminent scientist, Ian Plimer? Give scientists the powers of a Royal Commission – to arrest and interrogate people, and they’ll have the teeth they need to settle the climate “debate” one and for all.
For too long we’ve allowed scientists to get away with lying to the public and engaging in treason. Out of touch judges won’t help us, but Ian Plimer can, and Dennis Jensen will help him do it.
Students of history understand that there are a small handful of days in history which have altered the course of mankind.
One of no-carbon-tax.org’s favourite such days was D-Day, when Australian forces fought a battle on two fronts – against islamic extremism on the left flank, and a full frontal assault from the Communists.
The Aussie diggers were well-prepared, well trained, well resourced, and destroyed both enemies, securing our freedom.
Today, we find ourselves under attack from the same foes, this time bearing taxes – weapons far more dangerous than the outdated weaponry used by the Communists and Islamists during D-Day.
But amidst the constant assaults, No-Carbon-Tax.Org is proud to announce that the D-Day of our age has arrived – we call it Profit Day, or P-Day.
It reminds us of why the fight against the Government’s failed Mining Super Profits Tax was so important. If you had a golden goose (Rio Tinto), who would you entrust it to? The Red Army (Labor)? The Smurfs (UN global government)? Or what about the real green berets (captains of industry commanding our crack troops – not the green greens)?
As Andrew Bolt correctly writes, the government is incapable of managing crises like this. The only reason Australia emerged from the last GFC unscathed was because our courageous miners fired much of their workforce in order to protect profit and keep the wheels spinning.
