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") 




TTNQ has finally selected our new marketing slogan:

CAIRNS:  WE'VE KILLED EVERYTHING THAT MAKES US UNIQUE FOR YOUR HOLIDAY CONVENIENCE

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.

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.
