Australian Halal Money Funds Terrorism According to Jacqui Lambie, But She's Not Alone

AAP reported last night that in a late night address to the upper house on Tuesday, the outspoken independent senator questioned whether halal certification funds militants in Syria and Iraq.

She said she was prompted to look into the issue after receiving hundreds of emails from concerned residents.

A study the Tasmanian senator commissioned the parliamentary library to examine exposed some “surprising facts” that alarmed her.

Certifiers are not legally required to disclose their fees, nor is there a formal reporting or auditing system to ascertain whether funds are being misused, she says ::::
“Given that our enemies in Islamic State are receiving a steady cashflow to control their caliphate in Syria and Iraq, why isn’t there a legal requirement in Australia for halal certification fees to be disclosed?” Senator Lambie said.

“And given that our nation is on high terrorism alert, while hundreds of Australian Islamic State sympathisers are fighting our ADF forces in Iraq, why is there is no formal reporting or auditing mechanism in Australia to ascertain whether monies paid for halal certification are misused?”

Senator Lambie warned if the government failed to answer her questions, she would introduce legislation to close such “legal loopholes”.

“(The loopholes) could allow financing of terrorists and Australia’s enemies through halal money,” she said.

She’s not the first politician to raise the issue.

Nationals MP George Christensen last year wrote an opinion piece suggesting consumers who bought halal products could be funding Islamic extremism.

Is The Australian Sports Party a Topless Joke?As polling booths prepare to open across Perth, one political party has ramped up its media presence with that standard Aussie manoeuvre, a pair of strategically place boobs.

In this latest round of political campaigning – Senate seats for Western Australia – The Australian Sports Party has posted a joke on it’s Facebook page that has many wondering what direction – if any – the party intends to canvas punters on.

Australia has a rich history of political cranks, our last election, 2013, witnessed a cacoffiny of crazy, odd-ball candidates.

From Clive Palmer’s paranoia – the billionaire turned politician still reckons lefty Greens are funded by the CIA – to the dope (hemp if you must) party, This latest election – a senate only re-run due to bungling by the Electoral Commission – will surely see politics over-run by mental micro opinion?

The big question has to be ‘has Australian politics become, well, too Aussie?’ As minor, micro parties busily stitch together preferences, swapping deals in the hope of riding an unpredictable wave into the Australian Federal Parliament, the marriages are likely to be idiosyncratic matches, The Hemp, Sports and Sustainable Pollution Parties have little in common but are likely to swap preference in order to gain seats.

The Australian Sports Party -ASP – should apologise for the above Facebook photo, a prominent women’s rights group says. The picture is accompanied by an anecdote about the woman, described as “voluptuous” and a “babe”, who is running with a sign around her neck saying, “If you catch me, you can have me” :: Read the full article »»»»

Australia's Attorney General Considering Heavy Handed Copyright EnforcementAustralia’s Attorney General, Senator George Brandis has foreshadowed serious changes to the nations copyright laws.

Senator Brandis says one move he’s considering is asking internet service providers – ISPs – to issue warnings to customers.

Australians are among the worst offenders when it comes to illegal downloads, Senator Brandis is also apparently considering asking ISPs to block sites where content can be illegally downloaded.

Copyright holders like film and television and music studios have long argued that it is ISPs role to prevent internet users from illegally downloading their content.

The glitch in the plan might be a landmark High Court ruling in 2012, where the court found service provider iiNet wasn’t responsible for its customers’ illegal activities :: Read the full article »»»»

REBLOG! New Australian Mental Health Report Says ‘No Progress’ in 30 Years

New Australian Mental Health Report Says 'No Progress' in 30 YearsIf you’ve followed my blog, you’ll know I have a passion for mental health. This slight obsession has allowed me a tiny window into a world that for most doesn’t exist. A tragic place who’s border is much finer than most would expect, at any given moment almost any breathing human can topple from well-balanced mental health, into a world that is not only coddled by confusion, but largely ignored by the galaxy.

Mental health truly works in shades-of-grey, what for one person might simply be an anxious moment, is for another a life crippling disability. And although medicine – and medicine of the mind – has made huge discoveries over the past three decades, a new report suggests the insights gained might not have improved the overall life of suffers.

The damning report undertaken by The University of Sydney’s Brain and Mind Research InstituteBMRI – has found the life expectancy for people suffering a mental illness hasn’t improved in 30 years. The finding is in stark contrast to the advances made for Australians suffering from illnesses like heart disease and cancer :: Read the full article »»»»
