For Like minded people who like to see-
I met Michael Smith last night in Brisbane, where he gave a speech about the misuse of AWU union funds, and Gillard's involvement in the fraud. Gillard has used threats and intimidation to cow the main stream media into submission for too long, until recently.
Michael Smith runs a blog called www.michaelsmithnews.com, where anyone can go and have a look at the history of the sham Association that Gillard helped set up (her HANDWRITING is on the application form!), which was used by her then married boyfriend Bruce Wilson to relieve the AWU of about $540,000.
Anyone interested in this amazing story of Government arm twisting the media, threats and intimidation used to gag anyone who wants to tell this story.
Thank goodness for a free internet.
I have, in my life, met people from Czechoslovakia, Cambodia, Cuba, Latvia and other countries who have literally risked their lives to flee to free and democratic nations; to escape such thuggery.
We now have a government that unashamedly gags the press by using the unlimited power of the state.
Please watch this compelling video, of Michael Smith's speech in Sydney a couple of weeks ago. His speech in Brisbane was much the same.
Please also visit Michael Smith News facebook page, like, share and comment to get the word out.
And do visit Michael Smith's blog.
I spoke briefly with Michael, and told him quietly that I had battled significant misconduct in body corporate, but that the changes were only made when the owners took a stand. I said to him "Michael: Australians WILL win because of men like you - thank you". And I meant every word.
So every Australian has to take a stand. Do you support government thuggery, or do you support liberty? Do you support institutionalised fraud or do you support transparency? Do you support a liar, or do you defend the truth?
And the media roll on, allowing Gillard to verbal Rhinehart. The difference between Gillard (I won't call her PM - she has trashed the title), and Minister Ferguson is profound:
"Gillard and Swan’s responses top Rinehart are contemptible - very like the deceptive flim-flam of professional shysters. Once again, Resources Minister Martin Ferguson reveals himself as the presiding adult of this government, with a reasoned response to Rinehart’s reasonable argument:
QUESTION: Gina Rinehart seems to thinks its all due to not so much the commodity price but perhaps compounded by our high costs, high risks, as she sees the economy. What do you think of that assessment?
FERGUSON: Gina Rinehart and I have spoken about a variety of issues from the MRRT to the carbon price etc. I simply want to say that firstly I acknowledge Gina Rinehart as a serious miner in Australia… (with) real potential investments in Australia that will create wealth and will create real jobs…
The real message to us with the lower commodity prices is that the fat within the commodity system has gone…
(W)e’ve got to do everything we can to deliver the cost of deliver of projects in Australia because there’s plenty of competition coming our way- look at Indonesia and coal, look at potentially into east Africa in terms of the petroleum industry, Africa generally in terms of a variety of commodities.
No one owes Australia a living… The next $230 billion (of investments) will be dependent on us delivering these projects and getting the cost of delivery of projects in Australia down.
Note the difference."
And the ABC piles on, supporting this fraudulent, immature, nasty, vile, contemptuous, poseur Gillard:
Astonishing. Who is the fill-in presenter on ABC Breakfast who at 7.45am this morning sneered at Rinehart’s “suggestion of $2 a day wages” for Australians? Surely he cannot seriously believe that’s what Rinehart suggested. So how to explain what he twice said?"
Read it all here, but don't weep. Stand and fight. Now. Share this link with your mates, and don't be afraid of a bit of a fight.
Please tweet and text and blog and host and post until this country is rid of Gillard. She is a liar, an opportunist and a vile destructive force who pits mate against mate, union against business, worker against employer and teachers against students.
Michael Smith has posted this interview where Gillard starts by saying she was a loyal deputy to Rudd. This is very interesting!
If only more people would hold public officials' feet to the fire then we would be in better shape.
Holy smoke. Can someone provide some commentary on this video?
From Michael Smith News facebook page.
I NEVER thought I would be alive to see the decimation, destruction and denigration of the liberties I enjoyed as a young adult. We either stand and fight NOW or remain on our knees before a bunch of tyrants.
Ruth.... Just a few comments I would like to make at this time: 1) thank you for posting this video; 2) if Michael Smith record of events were not a true account of the events that occurred then he would have been sued by Ms Gillard in a Civil Court ... she has not done this; 3) because Michael is speaking as an individual he has deprived Ms Gillard of the power she previously had to threaten the Companies he previously worked for; and 4) Michael is an exemplar to us all with regard to the power to speak up about injustice and criminal bahaviour no matter what position that person holds. Such people are worthy of nomination as Australian of the Year.
Great thinking Beverley where do I enlist sign up?
Hello Ruth- just got home @6pm in truck from Brisbane. Good on you for posting this as you said you would.
Yes- I feel like giving up on all the crooks and let them rot in their own toxic pool as the lack of action from the libs is appalling too!. If this crew get away with this -there is no rule of law in this country and people would be quite within their rights of withholding tax and other Govt receipts until they have all been bought to book.
Re the blogs- Michael doesn't care who uses the info as long as it is truthful. The need for multiple sites should be negated now as he said that his new one has had 170000 views in a matter of days. While he and others soldier on -we must support them 100%
Ruth I was wondering how Michael is able to help support his family financially as two avenues of employment for which he trained are no longer open to him?
Cate I'm sure all You need to do is increase the level of those stocks
"If the current government is in office much longer,tinned food,a generator,Beer and amunition are your best bets."
There fixed Cheers Stephen
I think Swan will use this few days to raise his profile, thereby damaging Labor stocks even more. Michael Smith and Larry Pickering won't be gagged, and thank God for that.
Vaclav Klaus has said it well:
“The arrogance of global warming activists and their fellow travellers in politics is something I know well from the past. They wish to suppress truth, control the market, and dictate policy; and I, who have spent most of my time living under communism, feel obliged to warn against it.”—Dr. Václav Klaus

I just typed Michael Smith into my search engine.
This discussion came up on the front page of all the listings.
Then I had to sign in to get here.
So Ruth you are famous.
Even better Beverly people will come across Justgrounds maybe for the first time and discover fellow travellers who hold Australia dear and who have also had enough of treasonous and treacherous Public Servants ,be they Politicians or Beaurocrats.
Ah cate, How true your answer I fear will be. If its not this goverment that are doing a shocking job at running this country and giving us this carbon tax sending us all broke. Given the economic preasures in many countries trying to stay afloat, not good. We cannot keep avoiding the aftermath has to hit. And you can see everthing is starting to slow down here, I know many down here have no work, building trade slowing down a hell of a lot, in the shopfitter's game it's the same, Same with the renovator's game. Already everything is just flying up. Veg, electricity, you name it, I see goverment cut backs happening everywhere, way too late, Our suplus of money should never had been spent in the first place That's very bad house keeping. Can't tell me we are in a good way that I keep hearing people say including Ray Hadly the other day. But this war that's about to happen will just send the biggest after shock to us all. Won't be able to avoid that. Get those bullets out for sure Cate. Have you any spares?!!!!. could make a killing on this....... Hmm!!!!!!!.
Have a good day
