CORRUPTION AT CAIRNS COUNCIL HITS THE SUBURBS EVEN HARDER THAN THE CBD

BLUEWATER OWNER PETER SAYERS.
MORON OF THE YEAR.
The Cairns Council and their staff have been corrupted by developers for years.

A story in the Cairns Post highlights the problems - payoffs from developers to Council wreck havoc on our residential neighbourhoods.

Here we have the owner of the Bluewater Bar and Grill, a waterfront bar in the Bluewater Marina project in Trinity Park.  Bluewater was originally approved by Kevin "Hiding from the Pakis" Byrne as part of his "Fuck Up The Northern Beaches" agenda while Mayor.  Bluewater was approved with narrow roads unsuitable for street parking, and little in the way of Council amenity for the existing boat ramp and fishing community.  The master plan for Bluewater required the tavern project to have a minimum of 91 carparks.  This figure of 91 was even known to be inadequate when the project was first approved. 

But master plans are made by the Cairns Council only to facilitate the extraction of developer bribes later when they "modify" it.   

The developers of the tavern then showed up.  They wanted a (much larger) building and MUCH LESS parking on-site.  You can read the modified development approval here.  Why would they fight to reduce the parking?  Apparently owner Peter Sayers is a moron.  It was obvious to all that this tavern would be frequented by people who own automobiles - with no other alternative available to them.  What kind of dickhead removes 30% of the carparks necessary to operate his business?

Well we know the answer to that in the CBD - where Council has allowed huge projects to be constructed with huge carpark shortfalls.  Like the aquarium which is also creating turmoil in the CBD.  And this shortfall includes Council's own projects - the Civic Theatre and Munro Martin Park being just two.

Kelly Reaston is the Council General Missmanager of Development who is
responsible for this dud development approval.  Reaston (who tutored at the knee of previous development manager and Bob Manning lapdog Peter Tabulo) was  well-trained in the Cairns Council drill.  Kelly Reaston will approve ANY old shit as long as money greases the wheels.  And in this case the developer paid over $275,000 to get this crap approved by Reaston and the lapdog Council.  

And there are numerous other violations of the APPROVED development approval, with noise abatement, landscaping, bicycle parking,  and other requirements never constructed.  And since Cairns has NO process to evaluate DA compliance after a project is constructed, no worries, mate.  

This is little different than the developer corruption recently exposed on the Gold Coast, and which will ultimately jail Ipswich mafioso Paul Piasale.  

And all of this corruption impacts the regular residents of Cairns.  Peter Sayers is now threatening to close the Bluewater Bar and Grill - to what end?  Leaving an empty, cheaply-built, derelict building to rot in the sun?  


APPARENTLY FOOD AND SERVICE
IS PRETTY SHITTY AT THE BLUEWATER.
THEY WON'T BE MISSED. . . 
Council insiders have confirmed that one Cairns councillor, John Schilling, has "had his eye" on this property for some time with a plan to get it cheap.  Pushing the existing owner out on the back of improper and fraudulent Council decisions that allowed the place to be built is an unsurprising outcome to this Council-caused shamozzle.  


DEVELOPMENT MANAGER
KELLY REASTON:
EVIL INCARNATE


The wholesale disregard of state and local planning rules in exchange for what can only be described as developer "bribes" is just the tip of the iceberg in Cairns.  We continue to look forward to continued sunshine on these corrupt local government practices by Cairns' Independent Member of Parliament, Rob Pyne.

MEMBER FOR CAIRNS ROB PYNE - RESULTS FOR CAIRNS AND A QUEENSLAND BREATH OF FRESH AIR - UNDER ATTACK BY LEFT AND RIGHT AS THEIR BAGS OF CASH START BEING EXPOSED

SEND IN THE CLOWNS
Rob Pyne was a very successful and well-liked Cairns Councillor for several terms, representing a solidly working-class area of south Cairns with an energy not usually seen from "able-bodied" politicians.  Pyne handily defeated the universally loathed Gavin King at the last election as a member of the Labor Party.

No one can say the ALP didn't know what kind of candidate they were getting.  Pyne has never been a smooth operator - nor was his father, the revered Cairns Mayor Tom Pyne.  Cut from the same cloth, Rob has had the same low-tolerance for political gamesmanship and has found his disdain for leadership limiting.

More importantly, Pyne's attitudes reflect the hostility Cairns voters, along with voters in many regional areas of Queensland, have developed towards the party leadership of both major parties.  They exist to service primarily the Brisbane/Gold Coast corner of our state and have mostly given lip-service to the needs of a city like Cairns.

The realization came to Pyne that like Billy Gordon, Robbie Katter, and others in the far north, we are much better served by independent members of parliament.  

Pyne bolted the ALP and has proven that he can still address the needs of the Cairns area as an independent as well as shine a light on the core of corruption that exists across our state.

In the last couple weeks the rats are well and truly in full scurry mode, with ALP leadership in Brisbane ordering the ALP flunkies into the street under the guise of a "spontaneous protest".

What a load of crap!  You can't make this shit up.

Pyne this week was accused of enabling the "stalker of a female pregnant MP" (boo-hoo) into the Parliament building for public business.  This Member for Keppel,  Brittany Lauga, is a former Town Planner - a training ground for developer corruption.  Her husband Wayne is a disgraced former employee of Hutchinson Builders, a major company in Queensland that includes significant government business.  The so-called stalker was in fact acting as an independent journalist (much like us) that was working to expose widespread corruption in the construction of a new home for the Lauga's while Wayne was acting as "inside bagman" for the Member for Keppel.  A classic scam in which cost overruns on their home were apparently "forgiven" by Hutchinson.  Classic political corruption.  A case that was being reported by the so-called stalker, Petros Khalesrad - and who Wayne Lauga as referred to as "that raghead cunt". 

Mr. Khalesirad, a former "Young Queenslander of the Year" is a lawyer specialising in IT crime, and is fully entitled to enter the Parliament and any other government building he wishes.  Despite the shrieking by Ms. Lauga, there was no breach of bail by Mr. Khalesirad during this incident, or ever as the Queensland Police Service have confirmed. 

On the other hand, the Lauga's have a track record as brawlers, with at least two documented incidents of them being booted from local pubs with their drunken behaviour towards the other patrons (voters all).  

The access by MP Pyne to Mr. Khalesirad was typical and not noteworthy, until Premier Palaszczuk, cajoled by ALP "black hands", decided to make it an issue.  

Palaszczuk instructed local braindead ALP leadership to "get some protestors out in the front of Pyne's parliamentary office", and three blockheads were located and dispatched with their instructions that included what to write on their signs.  One of the blockheads, Carolyn Unwin, was happy to push her son Cameron on the state parliamentary payroll two years ago.  Cameron, a lazy millennial loser, couldn't bother to show up even for this make-work job that mummy got him.  The other two blockheads had to be recruited from the electorate of Barron River, so angry are much of the ALP leaders in the seat of Cairns - who STILL support Pyne despite his defection to independent status.  Craig Crawford in Barron River has been one of the most ineffectual lapdogs of Premier Palaszczuk and will likely be sent packing at the next election.

Corruption in the Cairns (non)Regional Council is rampant, with virtually all of the councillors having taken large developer contributions in the last TWO elections.  Like in Ipswich, bags of cash changing hands are reportedly in full swing with much of the Council.  Getting a CCC investigation in Far North Queensland is only a matter of time.  Already we've seen Mayor Sleepy Manning, former Mayor Kevin "Hiding from the Paki's" Byrne, the Federal Minister for Bloggers Warren "Tranny" Entsch, and other recipients of developer largess circling the wagons.  This isn't a party issue - as noted, the so-called defenders of the poor and disadvantaged in the ALP are mostly all living in $1M+ homes, far away from any reminders of these poor or disadvantaged.

Pyne has been systematically exposing these cretins to the light - Ipswich Mayor Paul "Bags o' Cash" Pisasale just the first of the clowns to be jailed.  It is the corruption that is one of the major causes of regional areas always feeling "shortchanged".

CAIRNS COUNCIL CONTINUES ANTI-RESIDENT MELTDOWN AS BOB "SLEEPY" MANNING PREPARES TO DEPART WITH A BAGFULL OF RATEPAYER MONEY

The drip-drip-drip of damage being done by Bob "Sleepy" Manning and his do-nothing, rubber-stamp council has continued unabated into the fall and winter months.

HBW has continued to receive information from both Council insiders as well as the public complaining about the massive damage being wreaked across Cairns.




RECYCLING AND ENVIRONMENT

Large and worthwhile recycling programs were initiated by the Schier Council in the city years ago.  Mayor Schier initiated not only residential recycling programs (that have had the highest participation rate of any regional city in Queensland), but began more "public" efforts at recycling.  These efforts included replacement of trash bins with multi-bin recycling bins.  

These have served not only to help our Council reduce costs, but underscore for our tourist visitors the seriousness we take our environment.  

Bob Manning continues to dismantle this system - now replacing the popular "recycling" bins in the CBD and Council park areas with - SINGLE STREAM trash bins. 

You can't make this shit up.

The Freshwater-Stratford area residents have asked Manning and their (worthless) councillor Linda "Fuck Me" Cooper for an explanation about the removal of these bins from their parkland areas.  Likewise residents in Edge Hill, who've asked for a similar explanation from THEIR (less than worthless) councillor, Max "The Groper" O'Halloran.  Neither has proffered an explanation, 'natch.


 CBD PARKING


NO LEASE - WHERE DOES
THE MONEY GO?
Cairns Council under Mayor Sleepy refused to build the shovel-ready parking structure planned for the old post office site on Grafton Street.  Instead they've removed lanes on CBD streets, added a couple dozen new parking bays while then taking them back for U-Turn pockets.  

Council is also engaged in illegally taking parking fees at several "parking lots" run by them - specifically the parking areas opposite the Queensland State Building at Hartley & Sheridan, as well as the Bunda Street parking next to the CY Hotel.  Council is collecting parking fees (and issuing parking infringements) at BOTH carparks.  But Council does not own EITHER of these allotments, nor is any lease agreement been signed with the property owners.  Where's the money going?  

And according to State Law, Council cannot collect money from EITHER of these locations without a registered lease over the title.

We've reached out to Richie "Master" Bates but he's been too busy to respond.  

But the biggest bombshell is soon to hit the CBD parking with the consecutive openings of the Aquarium and the new Cairns Civic Theatre. 

Residents are already aware of the parking chaos created by the events at the Munro Martin park - with many businesses and apartment buildings in the area constructed with no or inadequate on-site parking over the years.  The Aquarium doesn't have ANY onsite parking for patrons nor most of the staff.  And parking was REDUCED at the Civic Theatre while the number of seats was DOUBLED.

You can't make this shit up!!


SECRET ACTIONS BY COUNCIL


IF NO ONE CAN READ THE MAPS,
NO ONE CAN COMPLAIN, CAN THEY?
Council has also continued other anti-resident actions, usually by stealth.  With virtually NOTHING about public meetings being published now by the Council (by orders of Sleepy Manning, who's got no time to read all that shit), neighbourhood associations have to be extra-vigilant to determine what's really going on in their areas.  

This recent notice REQUIRED BY STATE LAW was dropped into the Cairns Council website.  But it couldn't be any more unhelpful.  It proposes to take gazetted parkland for additional (unnecessary) roadworks.  It is identified only by the obscure legal description and doesn't identify even the cross streets being discussed.  And if that isn't deceptive enough, Council has included a map that is completely unreadable! 


Then there's whatever is going on at Mt. Whitfield - with the public warned off the site for no apparent reason!

AND still never any explanation why Mayor Bob Manning and his wife Claire were not prosecuted for "Trading While Insolvent", and steering no-bid contracts to their company!

These are the acts of a corrupt Cairns (un)Regional Council.

MICHAEL TROUT BLATANTLY IN THE POCKET OF BIG DEVELOPERS AND BIGGER CROOKS WHILE PRETENDING TO BE A "FAMILY MAN"

VENETTE TROUT CELEBRATES HER
FREEDOM FROM THE CORRUPT
MICHAEL TROUT
The Trout family are quite well-known in Far North Queensland.  The family is known for decades of operating on the edge of legality, and in the last ten years have been caught out well over the line.  The stories are well-known.  

Stolen heavy equipment being used on Peter Trout's pastoral property in the Cape.  The last time stolen heavy equipment turned up on the Trout-owned Kalinga Station, police executing the search warrant wanted to hook-up the old man.

Michael Trout's brother Steven was a continual and habitual drug dealer, and was known to be dealing even from one of the family tourism business locations in the Northern Beaches!  

Michael Trout squeaked into the seat of Barron River as part of the failed Campbell Newman LNP government.  Trout barely survived an investigation into this business ties that he was SUPPOSED to shed when elected.  He was caught-out by the Attorney General but fortunately for Cairns, he was removed by the electorate.


HBW was the major reporter in the story of Michael Trout's continued corruption. . .

But not before lying up a storm about youth centres in Kuranda and other disgusting activity.  During his years out of government he's attempted to pawn himself off as a "fixer" and lobbyist.  Apparently finding out that not a lot of businesses are interested in a "fixer" who's old-boiler girlfriend is a prostitute and stripper.

You can't make this shit up.

Trout is now attacking the ALP plan to put youthful offenders into "Bail Houses" in stable families across the state.  This plan is a far sight better than the secret plan Trout approved to put a youth offender centre on a residential street in Kuranda - and then lie about it!!

After Trouty was exposed with his hookerette, his ex-wife Venette wrote to HBW asking us to not post the hooker-like photos of the girls she had with Trout during their marriage, exclaiming that now that they've divorced "she has a great life now".  Still using the Trout name for all its worth, apparently.  She also asked that the public not judge her daughters Emma, Heidi, and Hannah (all who've left Cairns for larger cities due to the economic failures in FNQ) despite the plethora of trampy photos of them available to anyone.  Heidi Trout, who's soon to join the ranks of unwed mothers bringing another publicly-supported bastard into the public purse.  

Sorry Venette, you and your daughters get no pass as long as he continues to claim to be a "family man" and you continue to leverage the Trout family name. 


And then there's Blythe Trout, who jumped into an arrangement with Matt Trout to snag Australian residency, is engaged in a scheme at Mugalli Falls while spruiking a worthless weight-loss scheme from the USA called "Herbalife".  The prostistripper doesn't fall far from the pole. . . 

We're working on information that ties Michael Trout to some real dodgy dealings during his time out of government.  More soon.

ACCIDENTS FUELED BY ALCOHOL CONTINUE TO BE HIDDEN BY MEDIA TO COMMUNITY DETRIMENT"

"HOTTEST BITCH I EVER MET"
It is well-accepted that Australians have an alcohol problem.

It is also well-accepted that Australians do their best to excuse it, ignore it, cover it up, and otherwise diminish the known impacts.

We're all expected to feel sorry for Claire Tucker, a local hairdresser who stumbled off the highway into a culvert after an alcohol-fueled day at the races.  Like everyone, we're all saddened when an unnecessary death occurs in such a manner.  But we're even more saddened when the lessons of the death are hidden and obfuscated by the media.

Claire along with her friends were known "party girls", never ones to pass up an alcohol-fueled day or night.  Her bff Danielle Boldiston has been quoted to say of Claire:  "The hottest bitch I have ever met".  Claire was reportedly stumbling-down drunk when she left the racetrack.  So sloppy drunk her "friends" did a runner, leaving Claire to get home on her own in this condition.  

The "friends" are now soothing their conscience by putting up a GoFundMe troll for money from the community - now hopefully earmarked for Claire's child, named "Zephyr".  Because single women banging out a rugrat is now the equal of getting a tattoo, or a new handbag.  

But with no insurances to protect the little bastard, the public is now saddled with another homeless child.  A few thousand bucks isn't going to make much of a dent raising a 5-year-old.

So the media is making much of the "tragedy", with nary a hint of personal responsibility.

Cairns has a history of ignoring drunken behavior.

Second-rate AFL player Jeff "Hoppy" Hopgood careered off an
empty highway at the Gold Coast one night in 2006, and there was NEVER an acknowledgement of the police report showing his blood alcohol was over .25!  Instead, we named part of Cazaly's after the fool.  

Hopefully someone will sit little Zephyr down when he gets older and explain to him the REAL circumstances of his mother's life, and death.  And someone PLEASE - let's find the baby daddy and get him to take up his responsibilities!

CAIRNS BUS DRIVERS CELEBRATE "SUCCESS" - QLD GOVERNMENT ROLLS CAIRNS AGAIN

After over a year of "rolling strikes" by Cairns bus drivers, the weekend saw Deputy Prime Minister Jackie Trad hailing "wage parity" for transport workers, starting in Cairns.

Drivers hailed the "wage parity" agreement for Cairns.  Proving again that you don't need much in the way of brains to drive a bus.

The cost of living in Cairns is much higher than most areas of Queensland.  Why should we be paid the same wage? 

Example:  We pay Warren Entsch, the most worthless member of Parliament in Australia, the same outrageous salary as (insert name of ANY other MP here).  Parity never does Cairns any favours.  And despite an "opening" for Entsch to do his job for FNQ while the Minister for Northern Australia sorts out his citizenship issues, Entsch says "sorry, not interested.  Too much work".  

Oddly, you don't see anyone in government advocating "price parity" for petrol, nor home insurances, nor electricity.  Shit, we're even paying a lot more for Ikea products!  

Cairns, Rolled Again!  We have met the enemy - he is us!

ANTHONY MIROTSOS - ANOTHER CAIRNS REAL ESTATE AGENT SELLING BULLSHIT AND FAIRYDUST - AND PUTTING CAIRNS REAL DEVELOPMENT FIVE YEARS BEHIND

                   

Cairns is routinely derailed by fast-talking scammers, who like the Springfield Monorail, exchant the ignorant and feeble minded in our community (the politicians and their mouthpieces like John Cueball MacKenzie).


                         

The Aquis Project proposal was a fantasgormic proposal that everyone of our "leaders" pretend to embrace an support without getting too much of the inevitable shit stuck to them.  It stuck to all of them like glue.

The project was well and truly dead when the Fung Family purchased a derelict Boeing 757 Executive-Equipped aircraft that flew one group of potential investors from Mainland China.  This group (mostly PLA Insiders, Bankers, and other Money Launderers) looked at the project,  Fung plied them with second-rate Cairns Chinese food, put them up in a second-rate Cairns Casino Hotel, proffered to them third-rate Chinese hookers pulled out of the Cairns Post, and the powerful group issued their unanimous decision.

They passed.  There would be no "hot" Chinese money here. And without the "hot" money, the legitimate investors would NEVER put their dosh in here.

The group returned to China, never to be heard from again.  At least one group is now building condos in Hawaii.

When Tony Fung dumped the 757 a few months later, it was obvious it was a marketing ploy that failed.  It takes more than a few teenage squealing blowjobs to get Chinese money moving.  Tony Fung and his Canadian son have failed, and Aquis would never receive any more money.

But they still talked about from time to time, attempting to use the mirage to manipulate this or that government project or policy.  Only dickheads like Anthony Mirotsos, (un)Sir Bob Norman, Bob Manning, and the local developer mob kept the fantasy alive.  Smoking fairy dust apparently.

Cairns as a community lost FIVE YEARS of REAL INVESTMENT from State and Federal governments while our "leaders" slammed their Aquis hams instead of doing their jobs.

It's going to take us 10 years to catch up.  Just in time for the "Death of the Reef" ceremony.

DAINTREE CRYBABIES: NOW THEY WANT A BRIDGE TO THEIR SHITHOLE INSTEAD OF JUST HONORING THEIR PURCHASE AGREEMENTS AND BEING HAPPY THEY LIVE IN A WORLD HERITAGE AREA

The residents north of the Daintree River should never have even been allowed to live there in the first place.

In the 2016 census, the Daintree supported some 202 residents.  The area steadily declines in population as various land buy-back schemes have been implemented and the aging hippie population dies off.

Cueball MacKenzie loves giving these freeloaders a "free kick" on his radio programme.  And the captain of the freeloader brigade is Russell O'Doherty.  Readers of HBW are well familiar with O'Doherty. . . 


As word got around about O'Doherty's attempt to scam the public with this scheme, he went to ground.  Only to resurface again today with his new complaint - waiting time at the ferry.

O'Doherty was on the Cueball show on Monday whinging about long traffic queues waiting for the Daintree River Ferry.  In part his complaint was directed at the tourism transporters who apparently are allowed to "jump the queue".  So Russell is attacking the tourism transport companies who are trying to give their customers the best-possible Daintree experience, then complains that HE has to wait in line.

Dickhead.

Do-Nothing MP Warren Entsch jumps on every marginal bandwagon - he knows he'll get aurally fellated by the proponents while also knowing that bugger-all will be done.  He takes positions both on the left and right, driven only by his quest for an extra vote. Cairns true bi-pollie Parliamentarian.

John MacKenzie laps up all the idiocy, calling the situation "shocking" and "deplorable".  And knowing full well that NO GOVERNMENT is going to stump up $75 Million for a Daintree River bridge to service 78 residents, and a few tourists.  Shit, we can't even get proper bridges on the Cook Highway in Smithfield and Yorkey's Knob!

If it wasn't for the tourists wanting to go up there, I'd say screw 'em.  They shouldn't even have a ferry.  You want to live in the jungle and boast "you're living off the land".  Then do it and stop thinking it should be serviced like Double Bay.

MacKenzie also listened to whingers about the Trinity Inlet dredging - with a few proponents now figuring out that they've been outmaneuvered by the politicians and aren't EVER going to get enough dredging to dock the Queen Mary II.  They continue to tell easily proven falsehoods - there are NO current or proposed Australian Navy Vessels that even NOW need any further dredging of our port!  

But with an election in Queensland starting to warm up, MacKenzie is doing his usual best to "define the issues", irrespective of their legitimacy.

"CAIRNS PERFECT AS HOLLYWOOD OF THE NORTH" - TROTTING OUT THIS BULLSHIT IS CLEAR INDICATION AN ELECTION IS COMING

Premier Anastascia Palaszczuk has announced that after her "very positive meetings" in the USA last month, Cairns is poised to be a "major film production location".

Yawn.  

We've heard it all before.  What a load of bullshit.




The opportunity for Cairns to be a competitive film and television location was squandered away by the Beattie and Bligh governments along with former Member for Barron River, Lesley Clark.  Clark instead voted as the ALP masters demanded for expansion of the business in Brisbane at the expense of her constituents in Cairns.

The fact is that a window of opportunity DID open for the region after the Marlon Brando "Island of Dr. Moreau" and Sean Penn film "Thin Red Line" were filmed here.  Island of Dr. Moreau was filmed in Cairns for very specific reasons - the need for a tropical location on the Pacific Ocean, the refusal of Brando to go to Hollywood and the requirement that Brando could "commute" from his home in Tahiti.  

Instead of building on the buzz for FNQ after Thin Red Line, Cairns was once again victimised by the southeast corner.  Politicians there refused to allow investment in ANY infrastructure in Cairns to support a film industry, instead seeing Beattie and Bligh making "sweetheart deals" to pay for more infrastructure at the Gold Coast.  Essentially Corporate Welfare for Warner Bros, the largest media company in the world.

It stinks.

The reality is that the possibility for this kind of high tech business that could have employed hundreds of our youth in skilled, highly-paid jobs, is long since gone.  Our still last-century internet infrastructure, lack of studio facilities to host interior set construction, shortage of serviced hotel rooms, and increasing use of digital imaging ensure Cairns will never be on the production radar for Hollywood, or anyone else.

Besides, with our only REAL filming location, the Great Barrier Reef, now understood to be dying - really, what's the point?

And we should also remember that Australia is only cost-effective as a production location when the exchange rate is BELOW US$ .80.  As we're now drifting above this again (with bankers predicting parity again in the medium term), Australia is seeing DIMINISHING interest in filming even in Sydney.

Cairns has even struggled in porno production.  (Links
"ANGELIQUE", really our local
Port hooker Gloria Branchina.
NSFW).  Our two hometown "stars", Monte Cooper and Gloria Branchina have been a bust.  Monte and her skanky tattoos have mostly disappeared from the scene (but her videos live on at Pornhub).  Gloria is now flat-backing in Perth leaving her children home in Port Douglas with who-knows-who, and making the Branchina family proud.  Leaves our hooker business all to the Chinese students.  LOL



But nice try, Anna.  It's always good for a laugh.  We can hear the laughter from Hollywood here.

POLLIES ALL AROUND AUSTRALIA ARE UNDER ATTACK BY THE "PEOPLE'S PRESS"



Cairns is hardly the only city in Australia being run by nitwits, morons, crooks, and perverts.

As the recent events in Ipswich have shown, a great deal of government falls into these categories.

Fortunately, the citizens are fighting back with dedicated bloggers.  One of the more prolific has been Townsville's voice of the people, The Townsville Magpie.

And eventually the crooked targets of the blogosphere hire solicitors and try a counterattack.

Always unsuccessfully.

Even the Minister for Transexuals, Warren Entsch, was unsuccessful at attacking Cairns Blogs from the floor of the Parliament, under Parliamentary Privilege.  His attack was so flawed that the Parliament was required to publish a correction and retraction of the falsehoods.  

In Townsville, Failed Northern Fury CEO Rabieh Krayem is one of these corrupt individuals who's now on the attack through the courts.  Krayem has objected to being portrayed as a "disgraced and disgraceful person".  Krayem apparently doesn't realise that the truth is always a defence.  

Hell, Cairns has a mayor so corrupt he ran a local company into the ground DESPITE having lucrative public contracts steered to this company.  Traded for months while insolvent.  Then dumped the company with inadequate disclosures to an unwitting buyer.

The State of Queensland has STILL allowed Bob "Sleepy" Manning to act as Mayor, despite these facts!

We've got other dud businessmen in Cairns who've put their grubby dealings on the public purse here.  There's unSir Bob Norman, who ran TWO ice cream shops into the ground despite one of them located on prime tourist real estate in the Esplanade!  He was then appointed to chair the Cairns Base Hospital where he and his board were finally sacked for gross malfeasance.  

Krayem objects to being a "dud businessman"?  We've got 'em in spades!

With our local "official" media - the Cairns Post and Radio 4CA so completely corrupted, bloggers are the bulwark of the people's media.  The voice of the people.

We offer our wholehearted support to The Townsville Magpie.

ESTATE AGENT BOASTS "HE'S TAKING OVER PORT DOUGLAS" - WITH LISTING THAT BUYERS ARE SHUNNING

THE SHINGLES - IS THAT A SMILE, JENNA?
OR IS IT THE BOTOX? 
Tourist towns around the world are filled with charlatans and scam artists.  One of the biggest areas rife for scammers is real estate.

One of the more prolific agents in Cairns is a guy named Nathan Shingles.  Nathan for years has self-promoted himself as "The Top Agent and Agency in Trinity Park".  

It's the ONLY agency in Trinity Park.  Duh.

Shingles has been the front-man for dodgy LNP hangers-on Howie and Bronwyn Thomas, who have relied on Shingles's double talking to find them places to rent.  These political connections are what's brought him and his operations to our attention. Insiders have pointed out that the various Thomas scams - the overseas logo business and other unreported income, have made it increasingly difficult for ol' Howie to find a place without a guy like Nathan Shillgles running interference with the landlords.  

As sellers in higher-end suburbs like Bluewater have become disillusioned with the fast-talking Shingles and his silicone wife Jenna, Nathan has been casting around for a market where he can start afresh.

He's now snagged a higher-end residence near Port Douglas and has reportedly convinced the owners that his "skill with the Chinese", who have been purchasing some of Port's high-end investments, made him the best choice as an agent.

Shingle's skill however neglected a key point that means NO Chinese would ever touch this property.

The address, "144", is one of the worst fung shui numbers for a residential property.  Like the number "13" in many buildings which has been skipped altogether, the number "144" is seldom assigned to any Chinese property.  Even apartment buildings have no apartment "144".

144 means "Death, Guaranteed Death".

Nice job, Nathan.  Your career is rapidly careering to a guaranteed death.  Stick with your deadbeat South Africans.

"LAW AND ORDER" RIGHT WING WACKJOBS CHANGE THEIR TUNE WITH JOHN MACKENZIE IN AGREEMENT

Normally, Cairns' right-wing law and order radio clown John MacKenzie preaches a "hardline" against criminals, right across the world.  In his view most criminal acts should result in long periods of incarceration - although he has yet to explain who's going to pay for it.

So the last few days he's lined up a crying brigade, denouncing the American system of justice because it apparently has resulted in the unfortunate death of an Australian woman, Justine Ruszczyk, in the state of Minnesota.  

Yes, her name is Justine Ruszczyk, not Justine Damond as previously reported.  And although the Australian news media and her Australian family have reported that she was "engaged" to be married, she was in fact an illegal overstayer in the United States - living for over two years there on a tourist visa.  She did NOT have dual citizenship, as previously reported falsely.  

She was an illegal overstayer.  

John MacKenzie and his denizens routinely want Australian overstayers jailed, deported, or worse.  It's clear this incident would NOT have taken place had Ms. Ruszczyk not been in the USA without the proper documentation.

We expect an apology to the Australian audience for supporting such blatant illegal activity. 

It's too bad she was killed.  Way too many guns in the USA, and even well-meaning coppers are working in a climate of fear.

CAIRNS NOW TOUTED TO THE WORLD AS "TOURISM DEATH CAPITAL" IN DESPERATE ATTEMPT TO ATTRACT MORE VISITORS

With the death of the northern Great Barrier Reef now looking to be imminent, Cairns is expanding its reputation as the wildlife death capital of the world.


In a fawning caller to the Cairns Mayor for Vice Terry James, the following priorities were listed by Cueball Show callers - to the strong agreement by James and John MacKenzie.  


•  Humans are here now - we should get on with killing all the crocodiles
•  The flying foxes "are spreading the seeds of weeds into the pristine rainforest" - so we should kill all the bats, too
•  We organise contests to kill the cane toads
•  We organise contests to kill the tilapia, too - a fish that most other people around the world eat as a delicacy!
•  All those pesky wallabies on the Northern Beaches and in the Southern Suburbs are "eventually all going to get run over" anyway.  We should kill them all now, and save our cars from the panel beaters
•  The aboriginal street people are embarrassing Australia to the tourists - if we can't kill them, we should at least bus them far, far, out of town.
•  Our teens, who have NO chance of a casual part-time job, NO recreational events since council cutback on all the neighbourhood programs, and NO future in the FNQ economy, steal cars out of boredom.  MacKenzie routinely calls for their execution. . . (Stupid fucking residents still insist on leaving their keys in their cars)
 Council should NOT use ratepayer money to pay for any more o' them faggot ballet dancers as entertainment in our parks.  We don't need no homo cultural events.
•  And since we've already killed all the turtles, we now have to figure out a way to kill the jellyfish who used to be controlled by them!

And it was also noted by Bransfords Tackle shop owner Keith Graham, who organised last week's "young fisho's tournament" at Palm Cove that, despite near-perfect conditions, the actual number of fish caught had declined from last year by almost 50%!  That have anything to do with the warming of our ocean and death of our reef?  Nah. . . .

(Graham, btw, was caught out shortchanging his already minimum-wage employees while he lines his own pockets with "death dollars".  All while he sells $300 sunglasses to "pro fishos")

FNQ POLITICAL CORRUPTION PLUMBS NEW DEPTHS AS QLD MEMBER FOR CAIRNS WORKS TO EXPOSE THE WHOLE STINKING MESS

It's a bizarre situation, that's for sure.

A Mission Beach couple, Steven and Julianne Toogood, have been arrested for "stalking" and "distributing prohibited visual recordings".  These charges aren't for kiddie porn.  They aren't from a jilted lover.  (Well we don't know that for sure).  They're being charged for distributing lewd recordings of Cassowary Regional Councillor and disgraced Deputy Mayor Rick Taylor.  


THE SLOGAN OF THE
TOOGOOD-OWNED BUSINESS
"AGENCY BLUE" - APPARENTLY THEY
WILL DO ANYTHING!
VIDEOS MADE BY, AND POSTED TO THE INTERNET BY CR. RICK TAYLOR HIMSELF!

This looks to be a gross misuse of police power.  Would these charges have been brought if this wasn't about a councillor?

We all know the answer to this conundrum.  The "fix is in" to silence the public.

And in an even more bizarre move, a spokesman with the Cassowary Regional Council claimed that neither the Queensland Ombudsman nor the Queensland Office of the Information Commissioner was conducting an investigation into the Rick Taylor scandal.

How the fuck would a Council spokesman know that, anyway?

They wouldn't - the reason the Ombudsman immediately repudiated Council's statement.  Cr. Rick Taylor is a lying  pervert and profoundly dishonest.  He needs to do the right thing and resign, even more than Tony Abbott.

And to the knee-jerk lefties, this isn't about Taylor's being homosexual.  It's about dishonesty - having a sham marriage, being devoid of basic decency, and using the internet and council-provided services to troll for sex partners.  This would be true if he were straight - the issues are the same.


NOTICE:

WE WOULD BE HAPPY TO SHARE THE RICK TAYLOR PHOTOS WITH THE PUBLIC, WHO DESERVE TO SEE THEM.  

After all, Cr. Taylor had no compunction with sending them to other STRANGERS on the homosexual dating app "Grindr".  HILLBILLY WATCH is happy to publish them, as is our right to free speech.  hillbillywatch@gmail.com

This incident and other recent instances of un-investigated Queensland Council corruption are increasing the likelihood that Member for Cairns Rob Pyne, who bolted the ALP as corruption gripped the State Party, will get reelected to his seat at the next election.  After all, neither the ALP nor LNP are doing anything substantive for Cairns.  As disgraced Paul Pisasale has shown, Queensland politicians have no compunction in taking bags full of cash to act corruptly.

When do we get some idea who got the missing $7M from Cairns Council for a computer system that reportedly STILL doesn't work?

Former corrupt Member for Barron River, Michael "Hide the Backhoe" Trout, was today bleating on the Cueball show that "he guarantees the LNP will embrace crocodile culling for Cairns".  However Trout was proven a liar early in his term as LNP member - lying about the location of a youth correction facility in a Kuranda residential area and getting NO support for Cairns from his LNP mates.  Trout comes from a corrupt family, with massive drug dealing and caches of expensive stolen equipment just the tip of the iceberg.  Trout even lied about his divestment in the family business while acting as an MP.  These are Donald Trump games. . . 

The fact is that the independent MP's in North Queensland are getting things done as a potent alternative force in Parliament and flexing their corruption-fighting positions.  When the general public gets attacked by the police for exposing Council corruption like in Cassowary, the importance of the Parliamentary Privilege to expose the criminals becomes all-important.



Then we have Minister for Blogs Warren Entsch.  The most corrupt, do-nothing representative Cairns has ever had.  He's been caught taking a helicopter (along with this spouse/beard Yolande) to a music festival!  Entsch has protested this junket is part of his official "duties".  However Entsch attacked former minister Bronwyn Bishop (who was a REAL woman pollie, not just a cross-dresser) for taking a helicopter to a POLITICAL event.  



Clearly Entsch is even MORE in the wrong than Bronwyn Bishop was.  Will the "good ol' trannies" club in Parliament be so quick to boot Entsch?  One can hope. . .

JOHN MACKENZIE SHOVES HEAD FURTHER UP ARSE PRESENTING "CLIMATE DENIER" AS GREAT BARRIER REEF EXPERT

NOPE!  DON'T SEE NO
CORAL BLEACHING HERE!
Even Donald Trump has accepted that man-made climate change is having negative affects on the world.

But it continues to be a surprise that Cairns radio pedant Cueball MacKenzie is among a fading few that continues to wreak havoc across Far North Queensland with his claims that reports of large areas of reef bleaching and death don't exist.

In his quest to defend this indefensible position, MacKenzie has reached deep into the scientific shit bag and pulled out one of the biggest turds imaginable - Professor Peter Ridd, who's barely hanging on to his job at James Cook University-Townsville.

Ridd has been censured more than once for his misleading claims and outright lies by his employer, JCU.  And the reasons for "Professor" Ridd's lies?  The oldest reason known to man - it puts big money into his pockets.  For you see Ridd is bankrolled by the Coal and Energy industries to write glowing environmental reports to justify expansion of coal loading ports and port dredging projects.  Ridd is the Paul Pisasale of Queensland higher education!

Ridd in fact has NO expertise in marine biology - he's more like a silt expert.  But once he got the word "Marine" attached to to his C.V., he's milked that baby for every dollar he can extract from the big-pocket energy companies.  He disparages the concept of "peer review" - a scientist he ain't.  It's been revealed as well that he and MacKenzie became mates in a teeny-tranny bar in Ho Chi Minh city.

Of course MacKenzie didn't have him in just to disparage settled science on Climate Change.  No, Ridd is now being trotted out to provide his paid lies in support of the Trinity Inlet Dredging project.  

Mackenzie on cue trotted out port supporters and topped it off with whinge from the fishos.  

It's really all very pathetic.

Then speaking of cross-dressers, MacKenzie calls on the Member for Blogs Warren Entsch to get his ignorant opinion on the subject - and Entsch of course defends the status quo and then undercuts Professor Ridd and MacKenzie by AGREEING that the water has warmed, and that we can't stop it!  Entsch then goes FULL TRUMP, claiming that the reef has INCREASED in size by over 16%!!!  Then throws his weight into "coral farming" as our saviour!

The increase in hot air comes solely from Warren Entsch - who has done nothing about the crippling insurance rates, the crippling and unnecessary petrol pricing, or any of the other challenges facing Cairns.  Entsch is mentally ill.  

MacKenzie has also spent lots of time heaping accolades on his Cairns (un)Regional Council mates and Sleepy Bob Manning - all for their installation of a CCTV camera at a park just adjacent to his home in Cairns Street at 114.  We support closer monitoring of this ratbag.
