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.

CASSOWARY COUNCIL TURMOIL JUST ONE INCIDENT OF COUNCILLOR MISCONDUCT THAT GOES UNADDRESSED WITH WEAK STATE SUPERVISION RULES

CR. RICK TAYLOR AND WIFE TRACEY
IN HAPPIER TIMES
Recent turmoil in the Cassowary Coast Regional Council has highlighted the ineffectiveness of rules designed to ensure the ratepayers are being appropriately represented.

For almost a year, the Council there has been aware of immoral acts being conducted by Deputy Mayor and  Division 2 councilor Rick Taylor, a resident of Mission Beach.  Taylor, married to Tracey Taylor with four children, was revealed to have been using the dating application “Grindr”, the gay-sex equivalent of the sex-hookup app Tinder.  Complaints to the Council CEO included photos of an apparently naked Cr. Taylor, along with emails documenting the torment and “dark place” quite often inhabited by closeted gay men, apparently penned by Taylor. 

Council CEO John Gott rejected the complaint against the councillor claiming only that it was “outside policy” for council to investigate.

When Campbell Newman and his LNP thugs were elected to run Queensland, they gutted all the ethics rules that previously had been in place, and the current Premier Palaszczuk has refused to restore them.  It was these basically ineffectual councillor rules that ultimately caused the break from the ALP by current Member for Cairns Pyne.  And with these now ineffectual rules, the Cairns (un)Regional Council has run amok with ratepayer money - up to $7Millions squandered on computer systems that STILL don’t work, with the principal culprit, former CEO Peter Tabulo, allowed to resign without any investigation.  Documents held by Council have been systematically withheld from investigators including Hillbilly Watch as well as the ComPost.  

There has also been a complaint made to the Cairns Council’s CEO about “improprieties” by a councillor and current development projects, where services contracted have not been declared as a Conflict of Interest.

WHICH CAIRNS COUNCILLOR HAS A SECRET
 "WINK AND NOD" 
DEAL TO PROVIDE DESIGN SERVICES
TO GA GROUP PROJECTS IN CAIRNS?


We sympathise with Cr. Taylor.  We’re aware of the family problems created when closeted gays marry - and have second thoughts later.  Areas of Far North Queensland and Leichhardt are filled with such stories, even in these more-open times we live in.  “Acting out” by trolling for other young men, transexuals, and others by our elected officials can’t be condoned by the public.  When personal issues cross over into the public domain, these elected officials need to go.

Cr. Taylor, who resigned as Deputy Mayor but still retains his councillor seat, has stripped all his social media profiles of virtually everything.  It would be best for the ratepayers in Mission Beach for him to resign.  

It is our view that under the current "anything goes" rules regulating Queensland local councillors, nothing is likely to be done by the way of investigation about the misdeeds at Cairns Council, either.  This includes the bankruptcy and "trading while insolvent" actions of the Mayor.  

Pity.

CURTIS PITT AND CORRUPT ALP PROVE TO BE JUST AS CORRUPT AS LNP

LAGOON VISITORS ENJOY THE VIEW OF
CAIRNS' FIRST SUPERLINER VISIT
Several years ago, John MacKenzie latched on to the "dredging of the Trinity Inlet" as some magic elixir for the flagging Cairns tourism-centric economy.  A whole corrupt industry has been created around the "dredge the inlet" crowd, despite the fact that these cruise tourists spend little and generally stay 12 hours or less.

When Campbell Newman and the LNP defeated the failed ALP government of Anna Bligh-Beattie, John MacKenzie took great comfort in his alleged "iron-clad commitment" from Newman to dredge the inlet.  Rapist-defender Gavin King built a brief political career on it before going back to "journalism" (his own dodgy website because no REAL new outlet will have him).  

The LNP failed to deliver, and even "hid" the environmental report from the public.  After losing the election to Palaszczuk, she and treasurer-trainee Curtis Pitt manipulated this report to suggest the cost would be almost $400 Million.  Clearly not something a cash-strapped Queensland government was going to build.

Everyone knew the $400 Million quote was a bald-faced lie.  

Now with an election looming, Pitt has "figured out" a way to partially dredge the inlet, pump the dredge spoil into Yorkey's Knob, all for the bargain basement price of $120M!

Which will blow out to $400M - AFTER the election it is designed to help Palaszczuk win!

Politicians on both sides dangle a treat in front of us, that yank it away after it has done their political job.  There is NO economic justification for this project - it can NEVER produce enough revenue to account for the cost.  What's changed?  


How about spending $120M on the shitty road infrastructure, the missing upgrade to the Kuranda Range road, the lack of city bypass, the pie-in-the-sky Bob "Sleepy" Manning light rail project?  None of these projects stack up either, but they're not a lazy $120M being given to a (likely) Chinese dredging bidder.  

We're a mob of stupid fuckers in Cairns, aren't we?

BOB MANNING AND COUNCIL EXTEND FREE PEDOPHILE AND FRAUDSTER NETWORK INTO SUBURBS

When Cairns Council first threw a sop to the tourist industry by installing a free wifi network along the Esplanade, it was for the first year underfunded, slow, and basically unusable.  It's what you get when you give a contract to mates with no performance criteria.

As complaints rolled in to Council, in early 2016 they finally got serious about providing a useable and reliable network.  Now like most things government does, the system was "wide open" providing fast, unmonitored and unmetered connections.  

IT professionals monitoring the system for Cairns (un)Regional Council began seeing a disturbing trend over a year ago.

The system is now being used to download massive quantities of child pornography, and minimal controls to minimise downloaders are easy to be defeated by these vermin.

One of the most abused locations is adjacent to Radio 4CA on Grafton Street, with the second abuse hotspot the Cairns Public Library.

These hotspots allow the pedos to trade and download the most vile child pornography with little chance of being caught.  Other "free" hotspots in the city (Cairns Central, Smithfield Centre) are managed using published blacklists of websites that serve to make them un-useful for these downloads.  

The Australian Federal Police have noticed the Cairns Council about their unwitting participation in this child trafficking.  Given the Council's inability to handle even INTERNAL IT issues, what are the chances that anything substantive will be done?

A more recent development has seen at least two mass emailings of SCAM "spear phishing" messages using the ANZ, NAB, and Bank of Queensland logos to unwitting recipients.  Sending these from an open, unmonitored hotspot run by CRC makes the Council complicit in the scamming of our elderly and stupid residents.

Richie Bates has been quick to take credit for the free Wifi network.  Funny but he won't respond to these reports. 

One of the NEW hotspots is reportedly accessible for Cueball MacKenzie's hovel at 114 Cairns Street.  Should be interesting to see if the crimes start occurring from THAT location!

JOHN MACKENIZE IDOL, IPSWICH MAYOR PAUL PISALE, RESIGNS AS CORRUPTION REIGNS ACROSS QUEENSLAND

Queensland Police executed search warrants on Mayor Paul Pisasale of Ipswich yesterday and earlier today.  As a consequence, Pisasale resigned today.  Insiders believe charges are imminent by the Crime and Corruption Commission.


Investigators from the CCC have recently been combing through records and communications at the Cairns (un)Regional Council offices. The CCC is investigating corruption regarding the huge blowout of ratepayer funds for computers that STILL are not a workable system for Council.  

More soon. . . .

RECESSION? LETHARGY AND DEPRESSION SETTLES OVER FNQ AS PUBLIC ANGER GROWS

The last two months in Cairns may have been the worst since the 2007 crash.  Perhaps the worst since the pilot's strike.

It's a tale of two Queenslands.

The reorganized Cairns Airport is being prepared for sale by the New York investment bankers that control it.  Cairns Airport continues to tout INCREASED TRAFFIC.  But as any shop owner in town can tell you, this hasn't translated into more tourists.  TTNQ surveys being withheld from the public note that the average time a tourist stays in Cairns has declined almost one full day from three years ago. 


And exit surveys being done of tourists have seen a sharp decline in satisfaction with reef day trips.  Almost a third have seen evidence of coral bleaching and other reef damage. 

Longer-stay domestic tourists are now avoiding the beach areas.  With irukandji closing the beaches more frequently and crocodiles now in control of much of the waterfront, who would stay in Palm Cove?  Only the ignorant. 

Almost every resident in Cairns now is starting to realize that governments, state and federal, are disinterested in any investments in Cairns.  Roads.  Power. Tourism. Infrastructure.  All are being ignored as internal government reports indicate Cairns tourism has peaked, and further investments will be wasted.

Of course we've got "hot" Syrian and middle eastern money pouring into hotel projects.  This is a money laundering scheme at best.  It hasn't gone unnoticed that none of the new hotels are going to be branded with any major hotelier.  The finance and ownership won't pass the due diligence of any major hotel company.  These hotels will be flipped and the money removed faster than you can say "shock jock child molester".

Many experienced tradies are concerned about payment, but like most "hot construction", some stupid tradies will eventually be dudded.  The Cairns Post runs these stories at the end of every boom period.

Queensland, now with the highest power prices in the developed world, is tipping higher prices as ALP and LNP governments agree - government can make big money from essential services like electricity.  

Petrol 30cents/litre more than the rest of Australia?  Warren Entsch tells constituents to "shop around".  Entsch - who spends more time obsessing over the newest ladyboy to hit the Cairns Post classifieds, is the biggest turd to ever occupy a political position.  Half a $Mil for his new office and the voters continue to be suckers.  

Meanwhile the Cairns Post runs almost daily stories about residents without jobs, neighbours losing their homes, people losing their benefits and ratepayers behind in their payments.  All of this drives more anti-social behaviour - a guy lying about a croc attack, cops getting promotions with stolen CV's, more fish-o's getting booked for green zone poaching, petrol station drive-offs, and rising crimes of opportunity.  

Premier Palaszczuk has adopted the simpleton message of US Idiot Savant, Donald Trump, and said that the ALP is all about "jobs, jobs, jobs".  For Cairns that means MORE casual jobs, more cash-in-hand jobs, more off-the-books jobs.  It hasn't been just the restaurants all up and down the Esplanade that are getting away with murder - the Chinese-owned Night Markets places are all dodging taxes at every turn (hence the "No Credit Cards" signs everywhere).  Even businesses owned by the lauded but now dead Charlie Woodward have been stiffing employees at Rainforest Station for YEARS.

It all comes back to what we've done to the Reef.  



Someone wake up Mayor Bob. . . . . .  Richie Bates has removed 400 trash bins, paying for the $7Million computer debacle one trash bin at a time.  Why hasn't this been investigated as a crime, anyway?  Along with the Manning family's Trading while Insolvent. . . .

The next elections are shaping up to be a bloodbath. . .

CAIRNS AIRPORT CANS EXPANSION - REAL REASONS BEING HIDDEN FROM VIEW

Since the Cairns Airport CEO Kevin Brown was pushed out of his position by the New York money managers who own the place, the airport operational staff has been in continual turmoil.  New CEO Norris Carter has struggled to bring some order and rationality to the place.



Carter, who had participated in the design and drafting of the $1.2 Billion redevelopment of the airport precinct, had seen interest for the project cool among the airport board members.  However with their hands stuck out for some of that cool, federal government Northern Australia Infrastructure Facility (NAIF) money, the plans still looked to be moving in the direction to overhaul the place.

At his first meeting with NAIF, Carter was said to be stunned at the coolness they showed towards the airport project.  Minister for Bloggers Warren "Tranny" Entsch has been MIA in the whole process.  And as Carter dug a little further, he was briefed by Advance Cairns CEO Kevin "Hiding from the Pakis" Byrne and given the awful facts about the Cairns Region's future.

Advance Cairns has a secret report that shows the Cairns tourism industry plateauing in 2020, and then beginning to decline steeply after that.  Tourist numbers will drop to levels last seen in 1985, or below.  Clearly there is no reason to expand an airport that isn't even at capacity now.

ALL BECAUSE OF GLOBAL WARMING DAMAGE 
TO THE GREAT BARRIER REEF.


Experts consulted for this report have confirmed that reef areas north of the Burdekin River will be mostly useless for tourism as the bleaching and coral death becomes widespread.  As potential tourists become aware of the coral disaster around Cairns, the "Gateway to the Great Barrier Reef" will shift south - with Airlie Beach the likely beneficiary.

Government tourism bodies at both the federal and Queensland State level have been aware of the report for several years.  Former Member for Cairns and Campbell Newman flunky Gavin King has told several business leaders  in Cairns about the existence of the report.

The Cairns Airport board clearly has no interest in investing their own money into an airport that is at peak usage now.  Nor does the federal government, hence the knock-back by NAIF.  

It's unfortunate that this important report is being withheld from the public and only being shown to "select" business managers in the Far North.  We've been told by insiders that David Fung and Aquis had heard rumours of this report but were repeatedly denied access to it - the reason negotiations with the Queensland Government stalled and then ultimately failed.   

We've confirmed that several retailers who had been in negotiations with the airport for commercial sites on the Cook Highway have been told they will not be available.  These retailers include the American Warehouse chain Costco, and the Swedish knockdown furniture company Ikea. Ikea is said to be looking for an alternative site.  Costco has not replied to requests for information.

Meanwhile, former Cairns Airport CEO Kevin Brown, head of the Perth Airport barely a year, is already under attack by airport users in Perth as well as the airlines.  Changes made by Brown are causing havoc with aircraft turn-around times, and passengers are now being dudded for services (like WiFi) that are free at most airports around the world.  Many believe Brown will be gone by the end of the year.

MACKENZIE BIG STORY? WHY AREN'T WE SHOOTING THE CROCS? WORLD NEWS BIG STORY? ANOTHER YEAR OF MASSIVE CORAL BLEACHING ON GREAT BARRIER REEF!!

There's no accounting for stupid.

Lee DePaauw, a secondary school dropout in Innisfail, loaded up on grog, jumped into a river KNOWN to be inhabited by crocs. All in a desperate attempt to get his joint copped.  

The young lady being wooed by this dickhead is still "standing by her man".  Two morons for the price of one.


We've now got John "Cueball" MacKenzie raising his level of screeching on the croc issue, ignoring completely that his own LNP mates could not be moved on this issue THEIR last time around.  

MacKenzie continues to warble that "a croc death will spell the end of tourism in FNQ".  Absurd.  

The issue that WILL spell the end of Cairns as a tourism destination continues to be the butt of ignorance and scorn whipped up by Cueball.

For a second year in a row, massive coral bleaching has been seen on wide areas of the reef, including  ALL the areas visited by tourists to Cairns.

All of this is being reported extensively in the world news media.  But we're busy being fed a daily diet of croc stupidity and reconfiguration of a CBD street.  The reconfiguration of Grafton Street as done to MacLeod Street by Mayor Val Schier is a personal issue with John MacKenzie.  He bullied Bob "Sleepy" Manning when he first took office trying to get MacLeod returned to its previous unsafe configuration.  Now he's attacking Manning on Grafton Street.

All as we sit by watching the reef, and our tourism industry, die.

John MacKenzie is a cancer on the Cairns community.  His holiday exploits in child-abuse countries are well-known.  He continues to attack the police, the ALP, and others who he is not allied while cretins like the Member for Bloggers Warren Entsch and crime family leader Michael Trout continue unchecked.  

It's time for a housecleaning.

CAIRNS RESIDENTS STOCK UP ON JUNK FURNITURE, BROKEN TV'S, AND COLLAPSED BUG-RIDDEN BEDS

Is is the nature of the collapsed Cairns economy, or are people just this stupid?

Trip Advisor reviews on the Tradewinds hotel have, for YEARS, complained about collapsed beds, dirty linens, broken room furniture, and non-working televisions.  

So what would possess Cairns residents to line-up and PAY for furnishings that mostly should have been on a trash heap?  Or at the very least DONATED to worthy low-income people in the community? 

If anyone has a list of the purchasers, we'd be happy to post it as a warning to others - don't stay over on any of THESE beds!


Sadly, the unhealthy state of this hotel documented in literally HUNDREDS of reviews are far more damaging to the tourism industry in Cairns than a few crocodiles.  But the Cairns Council, who refuses to even implement a Restaurant Inspection and Grading System, has NO requirement for health inspections at local hotels.  Our tourism industry is still running on 1960's rules - to the detriment of us all.

TRADEWINDS HOTEL CONTRACTOR UNLICENSED - MORE TRADIES ABOUT TO BE DUDDED??

NEW TRADEWINDS TOWER HAS TINY, ODD
SHAPED ROOMS SERVED ONLY BY
ONE TINY GUEST ELEVATOR. BUT HEY, IT
 LOOKS NEAT FROM THE OUTSIDE! 
As hundreds lined up yesterday at the Tradewinds hotel for old, filthy mattresses and overpriced and dodgy hotel televisions, more serious issues surround the rush to approve this project despite continued questions about the developer, the use of "hot" money, the CEO, and now the contractor engaged to build the project.  

The poodle councillor for the Esplanade area has, as usual, refused to respond to these myriad of issues.  Nice going Richie.

When the Tradewinds was first approved in the 1980's, adjacent property owners battled with the council about the shortfall of parking.  At the time, the 256 room property was required by the then inadequate parking code to have 187 off-street parking spaces.  The developers bullied the council into an approval with only 139, but subsequently only built 95.  
OBJECTIONS TO THE ORIGINAL 1986 APPROVAL ABOUT PARKING SHORTAGE 

The new development adds 55 more rooms, and has provided a consultant's report that suggests that the 95 are completely adequate for the greatly-enlarged project!  The Cairns (un)Regional Council has, under Sleepy Bob, been completely under the grip of developers and their consultants, so don't look for anyone at council to question this bogus report.

In part the report completely ignores the parking requirements for STAFF.  Which is understandable, since employees at the Tradewinds have always been told to "park on the street".  

More serious however is the employment of Prime Constructions (Qld) P/L as contractor for this project.  Prime is only licenced as a Category 3 Contractor in Queensland.  This limits the company, and owner Andy Taylor, to projects no more than $30M in value.  


Emails to Prime have not had a response.  An email to the Prime PR shill Danae Jones wouldn't have much weight - she's a known bankrupt (In Touch Media) that left employees dudded, and former front-man to Cairns' Minister for Blogs, Warren Entsch.  We wouldn't trust a word she said, so tainted is HER credibility.

TERRY JAMES SHOVELING SHIT
AS NORMAL  
Trade workers in Cairns are often the victims of these dodgy developments.  Millions have been sucked out of tradie's pockets by millionaires like Ghassan Aboud, when the projects go belly up.  Like most construction projects in Cairns, this development has been set up around a purpose-formed company (Urban Sync P/L) that developers can easily "walk away" from, dodging personal liability and all the payments they can.

Starting out with a contractor who isn't licenced for this kind of project makes tradies even MORE vulnerable.

The upgrade to the existing Tradewinds building has NO additional elevators - a known shortcoming that has been well documented in TripAdvisor.  

There's no stopping the ghost train.  All aboard!!!  We look forward to the ribbon-cutting - we understand Bashar al-Assad will be hosting the festivities!

TOWNSVILLE CAIRNS POST EDITOR JULIAN TOMLINSON SCRUBS THE COMPOST SITE CLEAN SO TOM HEDLEY CAN FUCK MORE CAIRNS HOMEBUYERS

The deadly circle of scammers continues to reassert itself as the construction environment becomes slightly more buoyant.

Tom Hedley has returned.

We all remember Tom Hedley.  The "regular guy" who built the worst possible houses and apartment blocks in Cairns - tourists call them "prison towers".  Owners of these dud housing units fought incessantly with Hedley's companies until they finally went bankrupt, screwing tradies all over FNQ.

Hedley snuck away to PNG, with allegations that millions in construction equipment were loaded on a ship and barged away to avoid the creditors.  And he kept all his ponies, too.  Like most sleaze ball crooks he got away with it, screwed the little guy, and now is back for more.

Tom Hedley has returned.

And unlike newspapers all over the world, who regard their work as timeless, the high-school dropout editor Julian Tomlinson has scrubbed the cairnspost.com.au website from any links to Hedley's nefarious dealings.

We don't forget so easily, Tom.  Since the front page story about Hedley's return yesterday, the Hillbillywatch.com website has seen traffic EIGHTEEN TIMES the norm - with most of the searches looking for Hedley stories from the past.

And like our Cairns Mayor Bob "Sleepy Manning", who also bankrupted a business and walked away screwing the employees and others, Tom Hedley is being welcomed back to Cairns for another bite from the public's wallet.

You can't make this shit up.

WARREN ENTSCH "LAZIEST RATBAG IN PARLIAMENT" CONFIRMS - SCREW THE RESIDENTS! "I'M ONLY IN IT TO FILL MY POCKETS"

Warren Entsch, the federal Minister for Blogs and MP for Leichhardt, was recently voted the "LAZIEST RATBAG IN PARLIAMENT".  We have covered the disgusting ratbaggery by Entsch for years as a search on Hillbillywatch.com will reveal.  

Entsch was reelected at the last election because the Cairns ALP can't pull a real candidate out of their arse.  If Mickey Mouse were a resident of Leichhardt he could have beet the stuffing out of Entsch.  The electorate KNOWS Entsch is a fraud.  The ALP should stop rolling over and do something.

As the Australian Government finances continue their collapse, PM Turnbull has faced hard choices (cutting the idiotic profligate spending of the Rudd/Gillard/Rudd years), and this week he began to slash the obscene spending on the Members of Parliament themselves.  This is supposed to be  "public service" - but elected government has increasingly been seen as a pig trough by the vast majority of the MP's, along with city councilors.  

There has been no bigger swine than Warren Entsch.  And
"I'M TELLING YOU, HER DICK WAS THIS BIG"
Entsch squealed like a two-bit tranny whore this week when Turnbull removed Entschy's favourite perk.  Free airline flights in perpetuity for himself and his lavender spouse.  Now done and dusted.  Entsch will have to live on his $200K/plus per year superannuation.  


And instead of just lubing up and taking it, Entsch becomes the only MP to prance off to the media complaining that the law is "retrospective" adjustment of his "contract" as MP.  Retrospective legislation has been used frequently by Parliament to fuck the public.  Entsch has VOTED AYE on retrospective legislation to fuck the public.  Usually tax legislation in order to pull more money out of our pockets after we've earned it. 

And I would guess voters would forgive Entsch free airline flights for life if he had accomplished EVEN JUST ONE DAMN THING HE'S PROMISED.



Sure, most of the Fat Boy's promises are complete nonsense.  The tunnel to East Trinity - technologically impossible.  The tunnels to Kuranda.  The Monorail around the Daintree.  Just reviewing the last of Entsch promises brings peals of laughter to every resident of Cairns.  One CBD business owner said "yeah, but he's drunk most of the time".  But then there are the more serious issues that have gone unaddressed.  Home insurance rates in North Queensland astronomically above anything reasonable.  Jobs.  Crime.  Jobs.  Port dredging.  Jobs.  Oh, and did we mention jobs?

Entsch has proven to be less than worthless.  Even his colleagues treat him like the cipher he's become - pushing him off to the back row and giving him a Dorothy Dixer a couple times a year.   

But he's been on the front line attempting to legalize his right to marry his tranny friend.  With many in the LNP claiming that marriage equality legislation WOULD have been passed EXCEPT for the bleatings of Entsch, who put everyone right off.

Far North Queensland is in desperate need of a representative that can garner us the proper attention and level of support we've been shortchanged.  Warren's whiney complaints about his free airline flights does no one any good.

SORDID BACKGROUND OF MICHAEL TROUT MAKES HIS PROSTISTRIPPER PARTNER THE LEAST OF HIS PROBLEMS

The cover of today's Compost has a photo of former MP Michael Trout and his prostistripper partner Donna Nicholson - in Trouty's sleazy attempt to "get ahead" if the obvious PR issues raised by his bottom feeding.


TROUTY WRESTLES A DUGONG
It's been suggested by those that troll this side of Cairns "entertainment" that Nicholson isn't her real name, with a search now underway for her honest  identity and background.

Cueball attempted to make light of the issue this morning by calling attention to 4CA's Murray Jones dalliance with a tranny.  More well known around town is Macca's penchant for travel to known kiddy porn destinations around southeast Asia, but you didn't hear Murray making light of Macca's travel "hobbies".  


TROUT FAMILY IS FULL OF 'EM
Michael Trout comes from a family of recidivist criminals.  The last time stolen heavy equipment turned up on the Trout-owned Kalinga Station property up on the cape, police prosecutors were close to charging property owner Peter Trout for having the stolen property on his land.  So introducing his old-boiler prostistripper partner to the community should come as no surprise.



The voters in Barron River remember that while member of the Campbell Newman government, Michael Trout lied to residents of Kuranda about the shortlived youth detention facility that was shoved into their residential community, and lied about his ownership and operational control of family properties including Blazing Saddles - finally ordered to divest by the government.

It also shouldn't be a surprise that Trout is attracted to prostistrippers.  Members of his own family look to be hoeing the same row.  

Michael "Hide the Backhoe" Trout is ethically and morally unsuitable to be a government MP.  He's refused to even answer LNP questions on his "consultancy work" that's he's done since being ousted the last time. Barron River isn't interested in paying Michael Trout to fuck us again - despite him getting schooled by a pro now.  

The Compost has put the whole sordid mess behind a paywall.  We won't tolerate that, either.

CAIRNS AQUARIUM READY TO COLLAPSE DESPITE MASSIVE GOVERNMENT SUPPORT ALREADY

We warned years ago that the financing for the proposed Cairns Aquarium was well short of the mark.

We're now finding out that the building can't be finished as proposed, the number of jobs is MUCH less than advertised, and that the place likely won't even be able to open without $1M in government money.



Our money.

MORE of our money.

Developer Daniel Leipnek's original project proposal blew out from $35M until over $50M, and the ratepayers have chipped in with free parking.  Well, we actually just guaranteed that this whole area of the CBD would become a parking nightmare, and Leipnek's paying nothing.

Now he's cap-in-hand asking for government money, and threatening to keep the place shuttered without it.  Who can blame him?  This strategy worked with the Bob "Sleepy" Manning, and we DO have a state election coming soon.

In a coffee shop on the Esplanade this morning, someone was heard to say "why doesn't someone get the arab to part with a lazy million".  However a REAL businessman would run screaming into the good night after hearing what's been going on at this aquarium.  Better to go down to the casino and put it on plaid.  

It's a shame that so many good projects in this town die from neglect, bad business planning, stupidity (that means you, Paul Freebody!!!), and government laziness.

KEVIN BYRNE - STILL AN IDIOT AFTER ALL THESE YEARS

Kevin "Hiding from the Pakis" Byrne, a former mayor of Cairns deposed by (horrors!!!) a woman, Val Schier, rejoined the Cairns "leadership" (cough, cough) after his failed stint with an American oil company in PNG.

Kevin Byrne has elbowed his way into a "leadership" role at Advance Cairns, a nice little earner for him - with no actual way to figure out what the hell he's actually doing.  And in typical Byrne-bully style, he's now been overheard angling to undermine chair Trent Twomey.  Byrne is not one to take direction from ANYONE.  Often seen panting and huffing from his car into a meeting here and there, Byrne was asked for his expertise and guidance this morning on growing the export of fruit/veg/dairy from Cairns to Asia.

The Jonsson Farm Market Crook followed Byrne pointing out that the farmers aren't the ones to identify markets and customers, ADVANCE CAIRNS is supposed to be doing that.  Byrne has been junketing to China and other destinations in Asia for DECADES, with nothing to show for it.  

The level of Byrne's ignorance is encapsulated in his whinge - "why are the Chinese buying milk from Victoria and Tasmania, when they could be buying it from us"??

You can't make this shit up.

We Kevvy, if you had bothered to check you'd know the
ALL THE COWS NOW
SPEAKING MANDARIN
reason for the Chinese planeloads of dairy products from Victoria and Tasmania - THEY OWN THE FUCKING DAIRIES!


Why would they buy from the pissant dairy production in North Queensland?  All of Queensland produces barely 400 million litres of milk per year, Victoria - 6,180m litres per year. And Victoria has DOUBLED their dairy production with the same size herds by implemented a proper investment strategy.  Queensland?  Well, the Malanda farmers are still driving Mercs.   

Get a grip, Kevin.  Your continued laziness is all to evident to the Cairns populace.  The reason Val Schier was able to shitcan your arse so handily.

4CA MACKENZIE AND JONES CO-OPTED BY SYRIAN INVESTOR WHO IS NOW KNOWN TO BE PERSONA NON GRATA IN THE USA

When Syrian born Muhammed Ghassan Aboud  (غسان عبود‎‎;) arrived in Australia in 2015, ASIS had already been briefed on his arrival and background by the American CIA.  Aboud has been on the US "Watch List" since the start of the Syrian civil war in 2011.  

Aboud is a smooth talker and works hard to groom his public image.  However the core of his business interests is moving new cars into countries that have been blocked from normal auto trade - places like Syria, Iran, Libya, the "-Stan" countries, etc.  US Military sources have previously linked Land Cruisers and Utes that passed through Ghassan Aboud Cars on the DAESH battlefield in Syria and Iraq.  Why else would someone use a non-franchised car dealer to purchase a standard, off-the-shelf vehicle.  Even a "luxury" vehicle.  It's absurd on its face.

But Muhammed Ghassan Aboud's big expansion to Australia in 2015 was inexplicable - even selling vehicles to countries on UN Embargo lists isn't all that lucrative.  And yet Aboud is spreading cash around Australia now like crazy - and there have been significant questions raised about this cash having ties to the leadership of Syria and Bashar al-Assad.

Additional questions were raised this week when a major hotelier considering the GA Group project expansions in Australia discovered that despite his EU Passport, Muhammed Ghassan Aboud is NOT allowed entry into the United States.  It is believed this restriction has been in place even prior to the block on Syrians placed by President Donald Trump this week.  

And like David Fung before him, Cairns pollies are lined up to grease up the member of the latest wallet to show up in Cairns - despite the serious questions raised about Aboud's links to terrorism, and support for wealthy members of the  butcherous Syrian regime.  Aboud's PR machine is legendary - with his Orient Humanitarian Relief organisation often touted by him, but in fact run by Syrian Dr. Ammar Martini and his colleagues.  

Aboud goes to great pains to claim he does "not belong to any political parties or Syrian opposition coalitions".  However  Aboud operates an anti-Assad TV station in Dubai.  Questions about his links into the Syrian regime persist - the rumoured 30-40,000 cars per year can't pay for everything being bought in Australia by Aboud's company GA Group Pty. Ltd.  And the massive spend by the GA Group in Australia coincides with the increased involvement of the Russian government and Vladimir Putin in shoring-up the impotent al-Assad government.  
FROM "OLDTIMER CAR SALES" TO MD
OF $100M HOTEL COMPANY.  HUH?  

Despite some quick handshaking with the Australian Minister of Blogs & Twitter Warren Entsch, Aboud has mostly been the invisible hand guiding the Australian "Cutout" Managing Director, Mark Davie.  It's unclear how Mr. Davie's checkered history as a used car salesman qualifies him to manage the almost $100M real estate and hotel buildout for Mr. Aboud.   Insiders at Cairns (un)Regional Council have noted Mr. Davie's high level of development ignorance when meeting with the planners, so it looks like another corporate cutout has gotten past the ASIC wicket-keepers.

We understand that Entsch has been cautioned by ASIS staff via the Turnbull staff office.

With the Australian government now under Trump government pressure to adopt the travel ban on Syrian and other middle East peoples of the muslim faith, it's curious that the hardcore anti-muslim audience of John "Cueball" MacKenzie hasn't been fully informed on their new "economic saviour".  Cueball's silence on the issue along with his new MIWF Pauline Hanson is deafening.

Pass the chips, Pauline.

LOCAL LEADERSHIP IDIOTS RUN RIOT IN COMPOST

The "big announcement" made in Cairns yesterday was the arrival of limited, e-commerce service from Swedish furniture retailer Ikea.

Clearly Cairns is too small to support a giant furniture operation like Ikea.  But Ikea has discovered how weak the taxation system is in Australia and are now planning to milk this cash cow for all its worth. Why invest in bricks and mortar when you can strip sales out of Cairns, Townsville, and other regional cities with virtually no investment?

Last year, Ikea booked almost $1Billion in sales.  (John MacKenzie thinks it sounds more impressive if we call it "1 thousand million", but he's an idiot).  

$1Billion.  And Ikea paid a total of $10.7MILLION in tax.  About 1%.

YOU CAN'T MAKE THIS SHIT UP.

So Chamber of Fools CEO Deb Hancock bleats 'we should get our own store so we can increase jobs'.  Hancock, with zero in successful business experience, regularly shoots off her mouth without engaging a brain.  She's completely ignored the likely result of the Ikea announcement.  ALL the other shops in town that sell shitty, cheap furniture will need to make staff redundancies and many will likely close.  Super A-Mart, Freedom, VIP - all will likely take a header when Ikea begins servicing Cairns.  Sure, Ikea has no "service", but neither do these other locals.  And Ikea is 50% cheaper.  Say goodbye to more jobs.

Then we've heard about the massive investment made in this year's Chinese New Year's celebration - you know, the one WITHOUT Chinese tourists.  Lots of people knew the flights were cancelled, but that didn't stop Sleepy Manning and his layabouts from dropping big $$$ into the failed fete.  

Finally, you can't beat the story about a young mother, appropriately named Cindy BOGAN, who complains bitterly that school supplies for her little rugrats cost her almost $200 EACH.  She bemoans the discontinuation of the School Children Bonus Scheme bitching that the government should be paying for her little car thieves in training.  

These child welfare schemes were part of the orgy of spending done under PM Kevin Gillard.  It's no wonder kids are bagging over 2 cars a day now in Cairns - with parents who think the government should be raising them.  What happened to "paying for your own kids"?  Sounds like we've got a spoiled generation of millennial parents who need a little tough love.

CAIRNS POST DEATH SPIRAL CONTINUES AS ONLINE DEPENDING NOW ON "CLICK-THRU" FAKE NEWS


The news being served up by the Cairns Post continues the slide into the gutter.  

They're now fully engaged in a search for "click-thru" revenue, signing up to present "Fake News" and other junk to the Cairns public.

Cueball John MacKenzie was the first to click and read "Why All Men Need An Anal Toy".  

What, another one?
