Australia shifts to the climate denialist right

Tony AbbottAustralia has shifted to the climate change denialist extreme right - it has a new extreme right wing, pro-war, pro-Zionist, anti-environment, anti-science, effective climate change denialist, war criminal, climate criminal Liberal Party-National Party Coalition Federal Government headed by PM Tony Abbott. This extreme right wing Coalition Government is currently held in check by a Labor plus Greens majority in the Senate but after mid-2014 a new Senate will have an extreme right wing conservative majority and the Coalition will have free reign to implement its regressive agenda.

The main opposition to the right being Coalition Government comes from the pro-peace, pro-environment, pro-refugee, pro-science, pro-human rights Greens. The Australian Labor Party (the ALP) represents the formal Opposition but under right wing Opposition Leader Bill Shorten the neoliberal, pro-war, pro-Zionist, pro-coal, pro-gas, anti-environment, anti-science, US lackey Labor (the Labs) is very similar, rhetoric aside, to the neoliberal, pro-war, pro-Zionist, pro-coal, pro-gas, anti-environment, anti-science, US lackey Liberal Party-National Party Coalition (the Libs).

The neoliberal Australian Labor Party (ALP) has lurched to the right, like the British Labour Party under warmonger Tony Blair, to become an Alternative Liberal Party, Another Liberal Party, an American Lackey Party, an Apartheid Labor Party, an Apartheid Israel-supporting Labor Party and an Australian Lying Party. However in terms of current voter preferences the ALP is the only alternative to form government at the next elections in 2016. Australia has a compulsory preferential voting system which means that if a candidate fails to get more than 50% of the votes, second and further preferences are taken into account. Thus in the 2013 Federal Elections held on 7 September 2013 the primary vote was about 45% for the Coalition, 32% for Labor and 8% for the Greens but the preferential voting system meant that after preferences were distributed where necessary, the Coalition won 52% of the “2 party preferred vote” and Labor only 48%.

Right wing Labor was deeply unpopular because a right wing, pro-Zionist faction of the Labor Party removed popularly elected PM Kevin Rudd in an overnight Coup in 24 June 2010. His successor from this pro-Zionist-led Coup, PM Julia Gillard, was forced to form a Minority Labor Government with Green and Independent MPs after the 2010 Federal Election. PM Julia Gillard and was ferociously attacked by the Coalition Government , especially because while she had promised pre-election that “There will be no carbon tax under a government I lead”, with Greens support Labor had legislated post-election for a Carbon Tax that would transmute into an Emissions Trading Scheme (ETS) in 2015. PM Julia Gillard was fittingly removed as PM and Kevin Rudd re-installed on 26 June 2013 in an attempt to improve Labor’s disastrous electoral support, with a key player in her downfall being right wing, pro-Zionist Bill Shorten who had also played a key role in the 24 June 2010 Coup against PM Kevin Rudd.

In the aftermath of the 2013 Federal Election Labor elected right-wing, pro-Zionist Bill Shorten as the new Opposition Leader by a narrow margin under new rules whereby 50% of the votes came from Federal Labor MPs (about 60% voted for Shorten) and 50% from Labor Party members (of those who voted, about 60% overwhelmingly rejected right winger Shorten). If neoliberal Labor does not sufficiently differentiate itself from the neoliberal Coalition and meet the aspirations of its own members, then the Coalition will get a second term, notwithstanding the call by sensible Labor Opposition Deputy Leader Tanya Plibersek to make PM Tony Abbott a “one term Tony”.

PM Kevin Rudd is famous for correctly stating that “Climate change is the key moral challenge of our time” but failed to measure up to his rhetoric. Indeed prior to the September 2013 elections, PM Rudd announced that Labor would “terminate the Carbon Tax” and go for a demonstrably ineffective and fraudulent European-style ETS in which the Carbon Price was a derisory $6 per tonne CO2-equivalent (CO2-e) (as compared to estimates of $150 per tonne CO2-e being required to meet the actual cost of fossil fuel burning and for effective climate change action. A fundamental strategy for voters is to “punish the incompetent incumbent” and hence on the climate crisis issue and its Refugee Convention-violating maltreatment of refugees Labor deserved to be kicked out. However within weeks of being elected the anti-environment and anti-refugee Coalition Government under Tony Abbott has rapidly moved to undo the little that Labor had achieved on climate change and to worsen the barbarous Australian maltreatment of refugees.

At the next election decent Australians who care for Humanity and the Biosphere should vote 1 Green and put the Coalition last on the basis of “punish the incompetent incumbent” (indeed the next partial election is likely to be a re-run of the September 2013 Senate election in Western Australia in coming months because the Australian Electoral Commission while conducting a re-count of Senate votes from the September 2013 election discovered that they had “lost”1,400 votes!).

Set out below is an alphabetically organized summary of 120 reasons why Australians must kick out the extreme right wing, climate criminal, war criminal Coalition Government. As is made apparent below, the Labor Opposition is just as bad as the Coalition but Australian voters faced with the problem of who to put last will hopefully take the key voter strategy advice to “punish the incompetent incumbent” and toss out the climate criminal, war criminal Coalition Government at the next election.

1. ABC (Australian Broadcasting Corporation) censorship, sidelining, blocking and defamation. Despite repeated complaints about lying by omission, lying by commission, defamatory anti-Arab anti-Semitism, defamatory anti-Jewish anti-Semitism, censorship (notably of anti-racist Jewish opinion), genocide ignoring, holocaust ignoring, genocide denial and holocaust denial by an egregiously politically correct racist (PC racist), Orwellian and Neocon American and Zionist Imperialist-subverted and-perverted ABC (Australia's equivalent of the UK BBC), the Coalition (like Labor) has ignored the complaints and increased the ABC budget to over $1 billion per annum. Indeed most Australians are unaware of most of the serious matters outlined below because of cowardly, unethical and egregiously dishonest ABC lying and ABC censorship (e.g. see “Censorship by ABC Late Night Live”). Indeed for ready documentation of the Elephant-in-the-room, Mainstream media-ignored matters below simple Google the relevant term e.g. “Aboriginal Genocide”, “Iraqi Genocide”, “Afghan Genocide', “Palestinian Genocide”, “Climate Genocide”, “Preventable deaths” , “Avoidable deaths”, “Educational Apartheid” etc. with or without the word Polya. Indeed the Coalition has promised to cut off all Federal funds for anti-racist Jewish and non-Jewish academics that support Boycott, Divestment and Sanctions (BDS) against Apartheid Israel (see “Anti-racist Jews” below).

2. Aboriginal ethnocide, Aboriginal genocide, Aboriginal rights. Under the Coalition and Labor (aka the Lib-Labs or Liberal-Laborals) 9,000 Indigenous Australians die avoidably every year, Northern Territory (NT) Aborigines are excluded from the protection of the 1975 Racial Discrimination Act, Aboriginal ethnocide proceeds apace (50 languages surviving out of an original 250 in 1788) and 80% of NT Aboriginal children fail basic literacy and numeracy standards. The Aboriginal avoidable mortality rate of 1.8% is the highest for any major group in the world and nearly twice that of non-Arab Africa. – yet this is happening in one of the richest countries in the world.

3. Academic freedom, academic free speech, academic freedom of speech. The Coalition has been a willing accomplice with Labor in the degradation and dumbing down of Australian universities whose education of 250,000 overseas students each year is worth about $16 billion pa. This has been a slow strangling of the goose that laid the golden egg. The education of overseas students is worth about $16 billion per year to Australia but Labor, from Dawkins and the Hawke Government onwards (the re-introduction of fees and the Dawkinization of Australian universities with the forced fusion of the vocational Colleges of Advanced Education with teaching and research universities), has been hell-bent on dismantling quality universities in Australia. The former Gillard Labor continued this trend, so that universities are now deregulated to permit a flood of inferior students with consequent course dumbing-down. Gillard Labor has slashed university funding by $4 billion, cut $0.5 billion from university research, and recently slashed $2.8 billion from universities to pay for a further $2.4 billion for the intellectual child abuse of private religious schools. Half of undergraduate teaching is now done on the cheap by part-time academics. Indeed Universities Australia (the former Australian Vice Chancellors Committee) unsuccessfully pleaded with the Gillard Government over the huge threat to academic freedom and to the teaching of 250,000 overseas students posed by the draconian, Labor- and Coalition-supported, US-linked Defense Trade Controls Bill (10 years in prison for an academic scientist who mentions any of thousands of things to overseas students without a permit from the government. Anti-racists Jews are inescapably morally obliged to adhere to “never again to anyone” but have been egregiously and falsely defamed as “anti-Semites” by Coalition MPs for supporting Boycotts, Divestment and Sanctions (BDS) against Apartheid Israel (as indeed have been all those supporting BDS). The Coalition has promised to cut off all Federal funds for anti-racist Jewish and non-Jewish academics who support Boycott, Divestment and Sanctions against Apartheid Israel, a huge attack on academic freedom and on anti-racist Jews in particular (see also “Anti-racist Jews”, “Free speech”, “Freedom of speech”, “Universities”).

4. Afghan Genocide, Afghan Holocaust, Afghan War. Pro-war, pro-Zionist, Islamophobic, US lackey Coalition and Labor are complicit in a post-2001 Afghan Holocaust involving 4.2 million avoidable deaths from war-imposed deprivation, possibly 1.3 million violent deaths (based on Iraq War comparisons) and 3.0 million under-5 infant deaths, 90% avoidable and due to Lib-Lab–complicit US Alliance war crimes in gross violation of Articles 55 and 56 of the Geneva Convention relative to Protection of Civilian Persons in Time of War.

5. Alcohol abuse. Under the neoliberal, pro-corporate Lib-Labs alcohol continues to kill 3,000 Australians every year and blight the lives of millions through violence, domestic violence against women, child sexual abuse, fetal alcohol syndrome and alcohol-related morbidity.

6. Anti-Arab anti-Semitism. Anti-Arab anti-Semitism is verbal or physical abuse of 300 million Arab Semitic people who are ethnically Arab or 1,500 Muslims who are ethnically and/or culturally Arab Semitic. Under both Coalition and Labor Governments Australian public life is characterized by egregious, false defamation of Muslims that would elicit national and international outcry if applied in the same way to Jews. Under the Lib-Labs Australia has been involved in 2 genocidal wars against Muslims (the Iraq War and the Afghan War) and has been a part of the Zionist-backed post-1990 US War on Muslims that has been associated, so far, with Muslim deaths from violence or violently-imposed deprivation totaling 12 million and Muslim refugees that now total over 20 million.

7. Anti-education. Notwithstanding false Labor rhetoric about an “Education Revolution”, under both Labor and the Coalition Australia's Education Apartheid system ensures that the majority of Australian children attending state schools are disproportionately excluded from a decent education, university, top universities, and top courses such as medicine and law; that 80% of NT Aboriginal children fail basic literacy and numeracy standards; and that children attending taxpayer-funded private schools are subject to religious brainwashing (intellectual child abuse) that variously teaches them to accept sexism, misogyny, sexual guilt, unsafe sex, creationism, intelligent design, anti-science miracles and the right to invade, occupy, devastate and ethnically cleanse other countries. Gillard Labor ripped $4 billion from university funding while enabling increased enrolment of weaker students at dumbing-down universities. The Coalition has suggested “privatizing” university students’ tuition debt (HECS debt) and police recently clashed with university students protesting this in Melbourne. The Coalition supported a draconian threat to the academic freedom of university scientists through Labor’s US-linked Defense Trade Controls Bill and has promised to cut off all Federal funds for anti-racist Jewish and non-Jewish academics who support Boycott, Divestment and Sanctions against Apartheid (see “Science” and “Universities” below).

8. Anti-environment. Despite egregiously false rhetoric to the contrary, pro-coal, pro-gas, pro-oil, pro-logging, pro-highways Labor has an appalling anti-environment record. Australia's Carbon Tax scandal means that Labor has made fossil fuel producers virtually tax free through huge circa $10 billion per annum subsidies for fossil fuel use and underestimating the greenhouse gas (GHG) impact of gas fugitive emissions by a factor of about 140-330. However the common Coalition and Labor commitment to unlimited fossil fuel extraction and export means that Australia is set to exceed by a factor of three (3) the whole world's terminal GHG pollution budget that must not be exceeded if we are to have a 75% chance of avoiding a catastrophic 2C temperature rise.

9. Anti-Jewish anti-Semitism. Pro-Zionist, pro-Apartheid Israel, US lackey Coalition and Labor are egregiously anti-Jewish anti-Semitic by falsely conflating the criminal activities of Apartheid Israel and genocidal racist Zionists with all Jews and thus horribly defaming decent, patriotic, anti-racist Jewish Australians who believe in “never again” to anyone (including Palestinians) and human rights for everyone (including Palestinians) and agree with outstanding anti-racist Jewish American scholar Professor Jared Diamond who in his best-selling book "Collapse” (Prologue, p10, Penguin edition) enunciated the "moral principle, namely that it is morally wrong for one people to dispossess, subjugate, or exterminate another people". This injunction is grossly violated by racist Zionist (RZ)-run Apartheid Israel and its racist, genocide-committing and genocide-ignoring US Alliance backers. Both the Coalition and Labor have ignored anti-Jewish anti-Semitism directed at anti-racist Jews through censorship and defamation by the taxpayer-funded ABC and the taxpayer-funded, universities-backed web magazine The Conversation (indeed Labor responded to repeated complaints by increasing the ABC budget to over $1 billion per year). Anti-racist Jews are inescapably morally obliged to adhere to “never again to anyone” but have been egregiously and falsely defamed as “anti-Semites” by Coalition MPs for supporting Boycotts, Divestment and Sanctions(BDS) against Apartheid Israel (as indeed have been all those supporting BDS). The Coalition has promised to cut off all Federal funds for anti-racist Jewish and non-Jewish academics who support Boycott, Divestment and Sanctions against Apartheid Israel (see “Anti-racist Jews” below).

10. Anti-racist Jews. Pro-war, pro-Zionist, US lackey Coalition and Labor have ignored the sideling, defamation and censorship applied to anti-racist Jewish opinion by the taxpayer-funded ABC and the taxpayer-funded, universities-backed web magazine The Conversation and has responded to repeated complaints by increasing the ABC budget to over $1 billion per year. Indeed the Jewish Zionist Labor Attorney General who has refused to discuss the torturing to death of Australian Israeli spy and traitor Ben Zygier by Apartheid Israelis, represents the electorate of Isaacs which is named after Australia's most eminent Jewish figure, Sir Isaac Isaacs, Australia's first Australian-born Governor General and who was resolutely opposed to Zionism, stating (1946): “The honor of Jews throughout the world demands the renunciation of political Zionism”. Anti-racist Jews are inescapably morally obliged to adhere to “never again to anyone” but have been egregiously and falsely defamed as “anti-Semites” by Coalition MPs for supporting Boycotts, Divestment and Sanctions (BDS) against Apartheid Israel (as indeed have been all those supporting BDS). The Coalition has promised to cut off all Federal funds for anti-racist Jewish and non-Jewish academics who support Boycott, Divestment and Sanctions against Apartheid Israel (see “Anti-racist Jews” below) (see also “Anti-Jewish anti-Semitism”).

11. Anti-science. The Coalition like Labor is profoundly anti-science by massively supporting anti-science private schools with taxpayer funds; by ignoring the demands of its own Climate Commission for cessation of fossil fuel extraction and burning (both the Coalition and Labor are committed to unlimited fossil fuel extraction, export and burning); by ignoring the advice of Australia's top water experts over the threatened, iconic Murray-Darling River system; by ignoring Australia's top climate scientists and coral experts over the destruction of the Great Barrier Reef due to CO2 pollution, global warming and ocean acidification; and by threatening university science academics with 10 years in prison via the US-linked Defense Trade Controls Bill if they mention any of thousands of things to overseas students without a permit from the Australian Defense Force or the Australian Public Service (see “Defense Trade Controls Bill”, “Great Barrier Reef’, “Murray River”, Murray –Darling” , “Tarkine”, “Universities”).

12. Anti-terrorism laws. Obviously all terrorist lunatics need to be detected but under both Coalition and Labor Muslims are targeted by draconian anti-terrorism laws that grossly violate human rights in Australia. Thus an Australian complaining publicly about the imprisonment without charge of his/her spouse by the Australian secret police faces 5 years in prison. A Muslim observing the duty of zakkat (alms-giving) and making a donation towards a Gaza orphanage could face life imprisonment for unwittingly making a donation to an assertedly “terrorist” organization. In contrast, Australian donations to the Jewish National Fund and hence towards the Palestinian Genocide (the ethnic cleansing of Palestine) are tax deductible. It is estimated that the accrual cost to Australia of the War on Terror is now $125 billion, a huge fiscal perversion that is linked to the annual preventable deaths of 66,000 Australians and the preventable deaths of Australians since 11 September 2011 totaling about 790,000.

13. Apartheid Australia. Under both Coalition and Labor Governments there is an Educational Apartheid system that disproportionately favors children of the wealthy. Further, Indigenous Australians in the Northern Territory continue to be subject to discrimination including race-based exclusion from the protection of the 1975 Racial Discrimination Act. The avoidable death rate of Indigenous Australians is 1.8% per year, nearly twice that of non-Arab Africa and the highest avoidable death rate for any group in the world but occurring in one of the richest countries in the world. Apartheid Australia indeed.

14. Apartheid Israel. Apart from the US and UK Governments, the Australian Coalition and Labor Governments have been perhaps the strongest supporters of Apartheid Israel just as a succession of racist Coalition Australian Governments were supporters of Apartheid Israel-backed Apartheid South Africa. Fundamental to democracy is one-man-one-vote but pro-Zionist, US lackey Labor ignores the racist, undemocratic realities of democracy-by-genocide Apartheid Israel - only 7% of 12 million Palestinians and only 14% of the 5.8 million Palestinians actually living in Palestine under Jewish Israeli rule (the adults of 1.6 million Palestinian Israelis) can vote for the government ruling all of Palestine and 6 million Palestinians are forbidden to even step foot in their own country. Of course racism and Apartheid are utterly abhorrent to all decent humanity and decent anti-racist Australians are morally prevented from voting for the racist Coalition over this issue alone. .

15. Assange. Julian Assange, the world journalism hero and celebrated founder of WikiLeaks, has been incarcerated in the Ecuadorean Embassy in London for over 1 year because the US lackey Gillard Labor Government and now the US lackey Coalition Government have adopted the position of refusing to protect him. Australian PM Julia Gillard notoriously and falsely accused him of breaking the law over WikiLeaks. WikiLeaks has revealed how 2 key pro-Zionist supporters of Julia Gillard in the 2010 pro-Zionist–led Coup against former Labor PM Kevin Rudd acted as US “assets” who reported Labor caucus deliberations to the US Embassy. WikiLeaks has also revealed how PM Kevin Rudd suggested war against China to the Americans as an option and how former Labor Opposition leader and now Ambassador to Washington, Kim Beazley, offered Australian forces in that eventuality (see also “Julian Assange”).

16. Asylum seekers. Of over 45 million refugees in the world today, over half are Muslim refugees, mostly fleeing the Australia-complicit, Neocon American- and Zionist Imperialist-promoted US War on Muslims, the breakdown being 7 million Palestinians, 5-6 million Iraqis, 3-4 million Afghans, 2 million Somalis, 1 million Libyans, 1.5 million Syrians (with a further 4 million internally displaced Syrians), 2 million Pakistanis displaced in NW Pakistan, 2.3 million internally displaced Sudanese and 1.6 million refugee or stateless Rohingyas in Myanmar. Nearly 35,000 refugees have come to Australia by boat under Labor which has adopted the harsh Coalition policy of mandatory detention of such refugees in remote concentration camps. Lib-Lab PC racism means that this gross human rights abuse is described as “stopping the people smuggler business model to prevent loss of life of refugees at sea”. Former Labor PM Kevin Rudd has described those helping desperate refugees find safe haven as “scum of the earth who should rot in hell” – but decent people can well ask how one should describe the genocidal Zionists, the US Alliance and their Coalition and Labor Australian confrères responsible for generating over 20 million Muslim refugees in the first place. Currently under Labor about 2,000 refugee children are imprisoned without charge under mandatory detention in remote concentrations camps within Australia or in Nauru and Papua New Guinea, with all this in gross violation of the UN Convention on Rights of the Child and of basic human decency, this alone making Coalition and Labor utterly unfit for public life, let alone for governing a nation.

17. Australia Post. Under the pro-war, pro-Zionist Gillard Labor Government, Australia Post has issued a commemorative stamp in collaboration with Apartheid Israel and with text in Hebrew celebrating the defeat of the Ottoman Turks by the Australian Light Horse at Beersheba, Palestine, on 31 October 1917. This stamp is highly offensive to Palestinians, Arabs, Muslims, anti-racist Jews and indeed to all anti-racists, including anti-racist Australians, by proclaiming Australian involvement in the foundation of the genocidal Zionist colonization of Palestine. One notes that the notoriously racist Anglo-French Sykes-Picot Agreement that divided up the Arab world between the UK and France was signed on 16 May 1916, and the Balfour Declaration that dishonestly offered the Zionists Palestine as a Jewish Homeland (albeit with no detriment to Jews or to Indigenous Palestinians) was sent to Lord Rothschild on 2 November 1917 in an unsuccessful effort to get Russian Zionist traitors to keep Russia in World War 1. There is no mention in this obscene commemoration of the 10 December 1918 Surafend Massacre in which members of the Australian Light Horse massacred up to about 100 Palestinian villagers as a reprisal for the death of a New Zealand soldier at the hands of a thief trying to avoid apprehension. Palestinian deaths in the post-1936 Palestinian Genocide from violence (0.1 million) or from violently-imposed deprivation (1.9 million) now total about 2.0 million. The slavishly pro-Zionist Coalition raised no objection to this perversion of history and Australia’s reputation (see also “Apartheid Israel”, “Israel”, Palestine” and “Palestinian Genocide”).

18. Bullying. Under successive, pro-war, pro-Zionist, US lackey Coalition and Labor Governments the bullying of Muslims is so entrenched that Australian Muslims are too intimidated to object to the ongoing US War on Muslims in which 12 million Muslims have died from violence or from violently-imposed deprivation since 1990 and as a result of which Muslim refugees now total over 20 million. Muslims are singled out for draconian interpretation of anti-terror laws that make agent provocateur-encouraged intemperate utterances in private or the accidentally reading of certain things off the Web potentially subject to decades in prison.

19. Carbon Price. The Coalition opposes a Carbon Price and has vowed to abolish Labor’s Carbon Tax and the Carbon Price inherent in Labor’s legislated ETS scheme. By opposing a price on carbon the effective climate change denialist, climate criminal Coalition is giving carte blanche to climate criminal corporations to pollute the one common atmosphere and ocean of all nations on earth

20. Carbon Tax and Emissions Trading Scheme. The Labor Minority Government introduced a Carbon Tax and Emissions Trading Scheme (ETS) in return for parliamentary support from the pro-environment Greens. Whereas overseas a Carbon Tax means a tax on fossil fuels at the mine gate, under Labor it is confined to a tax on fossil fuel transport (outweighed by huge subsidies), a tax on gas fugitive emissions (scandalously under-estimated by a factor of 140-330, i.e. making fugitive emissions essentially tax-free), and taxation of domestic and industrial fossil fuel end-users with 90% of the receipts being returned to the end-users in a pathetic futile cycle designed to fool the public into believing that something is actually being done. The Carbon Tax fraud is exceeded by the ETS fraud. The ETS approach is empirically unsuccessful, is accordingly counterproductive, and is utterly fraudulent in that the Gillard Labor Government will (if re-elected) fraudulently sell licenses to pollute the one common atmosphere of all countries on Earth. The Coalition has opposed these measures not because they were ineffective (something of which the pro-fossil fuels Coalition would approve) but because the carbon tax would impact on household budgets and make Australian products less competitive internationally (see “Carbon price”, “Lying” and “Spin and slices (spin-based untruths”).

21. Censorship. Under both Coalition and Labor there is massive self-censorship, lying by omission and censorship of humane, science-based and progressive views (e.g. those of anti-racist Jews) by Mainstream media including taxpayer-funded media such as the ABC, SBS (the multicultural Special Broadcasting Service) and the universities-backed web magazine The Conversation. University science academics are threatened with 10 years in prison via the US-linked Defense Trade Controls Bill if they mention any of thousands of things specified in a huge Defense and Strategic Goods List to overseas students without a permit from the Australian Defense Force or the Australian Public Service. Of course, under Labor academics in general are highly intimidated by massive job cuts, the massive casualization of academic teaching, and codes of conduct policed by an ever-increasing university bureaucracy that interprets the will of government and the corporate establishment. Of course Muslims are subject to draconian interpretation of anti-terror laws that make agent-encouraged intemperate utterances in private or accidentally reading certain things off the Web subject to decades in prison. These horrendous abuses were introduced by the Coalition under PM John Howard with craven Labor support. The Coalition has promised to cut off all Federal funds for anti-racist Jewish and non-Jewish academics who support Boycott, Divestment and Sanctions (BDS) against Apartheid Israel. Outstanding Australian-born journalist John Pilger has commented thus in support of the truth-purveying Green Left Weekly: “Australia has the most restrictive media in the western world. Censorship by omission denies Australians their democratic right to make sense of whole stratas of political and foreign policy. That's why Green Left Weekly is a beacon, doing a job of honorable journalism, as an agent of people, not power”(see “Anti-racist Jews”, “Anti-Jewish anti-Semitism”. “Defense Trade Controls Bill”, “Universities”).

22. Child rights. Under both Coalition and Labor about 2,000 refugee children are highly abusively imprisoned without charge or trial in gross violation of the Rights of the Child; most Australian children are disadvantaged by Educational Apartheid; and, as discussed in “Anti-education” above, children attending taxpayer-subsidized private schools are subject to appalling child intellectual abuse. Coalition- and Labor-complicit under-5 infant deaths in the post-1990 Iraqi Holocaust and the post-2001 Afghan Holocaust total 2.0 million and 3.0 million, respectively, 90% avoidable and due to gross violation of the Geneva Convention by the US Alliance and Australia. A Coalition Government under John Howard made a massive contribution to mass murder of Iraqi children through Australia’s illegal and war criminal invasion of Iraq. The right of NT Indigenous children to a decent childhood and a decent education is denied by the PC racist Coalition and Labor who also grossly violate the human rights of child asylum seekers who, if they arrive by boat, are almost immediately shipped off to remote concentration camps in Nauru or Papua New Guinea.(see also “Asylum seekers”, “Refugees”). .

23. Child sexual abuse. Labor instituted a Royal Commission that is confined to investigating horrendous institutional child sexual abuse (up to 40,000 cases over the last 40 years by Catholic Church personnel). However both the Coalition and Labor continue to ignore the awful reality that 34% of Australian women and 16% of Australian men – 4.4 million Australians in all - have been subject to child sexual abuse i.e. the Coalition and Labor have ignored huge non-institutional child sexual abuse.

24. Climate change inaction, climate crisis, climate emergency, climate genocide, climate injustice. Labor utterly falsely claims that it is “tackling climate change for a clean energy future”. However “tackling climate change” means reducing Greenhouse gas (GHG) pollution and Australian Treasury modeling indicates that under Labor Carbon Tax and ETS policies Australia's Domestic GHG pollution will increase from 578 Mt CO2-e in 2010 to 621 Mt CO2-e by 2020. The Coalition’s and Labor's climate criminal policy of unlimited coal, gas and iron ore exports means that Australia's Domestic plus Exported GHG pollution will increase from 1,512 Mt CO2-e in 2009 to 2,578 Mt CO2-e in 2020 and that Australia will exceed by a factor of three (3) the whole world's terminal greenhouse gas (GHG) pollution budget of 600 Gt CO2 that must not be exceeded if the world is to have a 75% chance of avoiding a catastrophic 2C temperature rise. It is estimated that climate change inaction may result in the avoidable deaths of 10 billion people this century (see also “Greenhouse gases”).

25. Coal. The climate criminal Coalition and Labor are both committed to unlimited black coal exports, approved brown coal exports, provided huge subsidies to coal burning power plants and has permitted huge coal exporting developments in coastal Queensland that provide a huge threat to the iconic Great Barrier Reef in addition to that posed by man-made global warming and ocean acdification. Indeed the climate criminal Coalition has threatened to take licenses off mining companies if they are not sufficiently assiduous in extracting and exporting fossil fuels.

26. Contract seizure and violation without permission. In Australia under successive Coalition and Labor Governments a contract with an individual and a company is no longer secure – another company can electronically invade the contracting company, seize the contract, change the contract, bill the individual and all this without the permission of the individual. Thus under the Labor Government our carefully negotiated, direct debit-based electricity account with a major company AGL was seized and changed without our agreement by a company called Simply Energy which then proceeded to demand payment. We paid up to avoid power disconnection and the Victorian Electricity Ombudsman then secured the return of our account to AGL (the local police and the Victoria Police Fraud Squad were not interested). Under the new Coalition Government a company called Talk365 seized my carefully negotiated account with major telecommunications company Telstra, changed the name of the account to that of my wife and proceeded to bill her – and all this despite our vociferous, repeated, verbal and written objections after this company first intruded into our lives. After we referred these events to the Australian Competition and Consumer Commission (ACCC), the Victoria Police Fraud Squad and Telstra, our telephone was disconnected but Talk365 continued demanding payment. Telstra kindly gave us a new contract and new phone number but we are now having to notify friends, relatives, business associates and numerous medical people involved in serious and routine family illnesses of our new number (an enormous inconvenience) but again the local police and the Victoria Police Fraud Squad were not interested (also see “Privacy violation”). .

27. Corruption. Both the Coalition and Labor have been in receipt of financial support from the proceeds of crime of a Zionist who was Australia's biggest white collar criminal and one of Australia's biggest donors toward the Palestinian Genocide. Australia’s Carbon Tax scandal means that Labor has ensured that the Carbon Tax on fugitive methane (CH4) emissions is negligible (the Coalition ignores this huge scandal). . Neoliberal, corporatist Labor similarly ensured that receipts from the post-Coup version of the Kevin Rudd-initiated Mining Tax were negligible.

28. Defamation of Muslims and anti-racist Jews. Pro-war, pro-Zionist, US lackey Labor has gone along with the Neocon American- and Zionist Imperialist demonization of Muslims that was violently expressed in the horrendous realities of the post-1990 War on Muslims (12 million Muslim deaths from violence or from violently-imposed deprivation since 1990 and Muslim refugees now totaling over 20 million). Both the Coalition and Labor ignore the defamation of anti-racist Jews opposing the Palestinian Genocide. Anti-racists Jews are inescapably morally obliged to adhere to “never again to anyone” but have been egregiously and falsely defamed as “anti-Semites” by Coalition MPs for supporting Boycotts, Divestment and Sanctions (BDS) against Apartheid Israel (as indeed have been all those supporting BDS) (see “Anti-Arab anti-Semitism” and “Anti-Jewish anti-Semitism”).. .

29. Defense Trade Controls Bill. The Coalition supported passage of the previous Labor Government’s US-linked Defense Trade Controls Bill that provides 10 years in prison for an academic scientist who mentions any of thousands of things to overseas students or other non-Australians without a permit from the government (see “Censorship”, “Universities”).

30. Deforestation. Both the Coalition and Labor continue to permit logging of South East Australian forests, resources that are the best forest carbon sinks in the world. Climate criminal Coalition and Labor policy of unlimited coal, gas and iron ore exports is compounded by their policy of logging the best forest carbon sinks in the world.

31. Democracy, democracy-by-genocide Apartheid Israel. Fundamental to democracy is one-man-one-vote but similarly pro-Zionist and slavishly US lackey Coalition and Labor both ignore the racist, undemocratic realities of democracy-by-genocide Apartheid Israel - only 7% of 12 million Palestinians and only 14% of the 5.8 million Palestinians actually living in Palestine under Jewish Israeli rule (the adults of 1.6 million Palestinian Israelis) can vote for the government ruling all of Palestine and 6 million Palestinians are forbidden to even step foot in their own country. The slavishly US lackey Coalition and Labor also ignore the reality of massive disenfranchisement of adult African-American men e.g. about 80% of adult male African-Americans in Chicago are forbidden the vote under Illinois felony laws. Under a succession of racist Coalition and Labor Governments Indigenous Australians were denied the vote until after the 1967 Referendum.

32. Drone strikes. Australia has joint telecommunications facilities with the US on Australian soil that are used for spying on telecommunications in the Asia –Pacific region and are indeed very likely to be involved in war criminal drone strikes from the Africa and the Yemen to Pakistan, The war criminal Coalition Government, like its war criminal Labor Government predecessors, refuses to comment and hides behind the mantra “We do not comment on intelligence matters”. The previous Australian Labor Government further suggested US drones being based in Australia’s Cocos-Keeling Islands in the Pacific.

33. Drugs. Under both the Coalition and Labor smoking kills about 16,000 Australians annually and alcohol kills about 3,000 Australians annually whereas illicit drugs kill about 1,000 Australians each year. Labor introduced plain packaging for cigarettes but smoking and alcohol remain legal and associated with the deaths of nearly 20,000 Australians annually. Equally pro-war and slavishly US lackey Coalition and Labor are both enthusiastically involved in the Afghan War that has been associated with the collateral damage of over 1 million opiate drug-related deaths world-wide since 2001 linked to the US Alliance restoration of the Taliban-destroyed Afghan opium industry from 6% of world market share in 2001 to 93% in 2007, the breakdown of this carnage including 200,000 Americans, 50,000 Iranians, 18,000 British, 10,000 Canadians 8,000 Germans and 4,000 Australians.

34. Economic incompetence, economic mismanagement. Both the neoliberal Coalition and neoliberal Labor have appalling records of economic incompetence and economic mismanagement. Under Labor Australia has seen a succession of budget deficits. Labor's profligate stimulus policies that it asserts enabled Australia to avoid disastrous consequences of the Global Financial Crisis (GFC), involved chucking scores of billions of dollars at the problem (e.g. building school halls) without thought for useful outcomes. Thus a massive implementation of wind power would have had immense long-term as well as rapid short-term benefits (however the Coalition has adopted anti-wind policies). Both the Coalition and Labor economic policies have been based on an utterly unsustainable, climate criminal policy of unlimited coal, gas and iron ore exports. It is estimated that for every $1 paid for coal, future generations will have to spend $2-$3 in today's dollars on requisite generation of biochar to reduce atmospheric CO2 (for every $1 for gas there will be a similar debt of $0.6-$1.0 for subsequent requisite biochar production) – a huge burden of intergenerational inequity and the Carbon Debt thus incurred under the 3-year Abbott Coalition Government is estimated to be $300-450 billion.

35. Education, Educational Apartheid, educational crisis, educational reform. Under the Coalition and Labor Australia's Educational Apartheid system the majority of Australian children attending state schools are disproportionately excluded from a decent education, university, top universities, and top courses such as medicine and law; that 80% of NT Aboriginal children fail to meet basic literacy and numeracy standards; that 47% of Australians are functionally illiterate and 53% are functionally innumerate; and that children attending taxpayer-funded private schools are subject to religious brainwashing (intellectual child abuse) that variously teaches them to accept sexism, misogyny, sexual guilt, unsafe sex, creationism, intelligent design, anti-science miracles and the right to invade, occupy, devastate and ethnically cleanse other countries. Labor's last-minute commitment to “Gonski reforms” after nearly 6 years of inaction can be seen as cynical political spin of promising huge amounts of money they don't have and won't get to spend. The Coalition opposed this expansion of funding to needy state schools. There are dozens of educational procedural innovations that cost nothing or very little and that can and should be introduced to address the educational crisis but the Coalition has a corporatist model aimed at perpetuating Educational Apartheid and indeed exacerbating it by turning state schools in prosperous areas into quasi-private schools.

36. Emissions Trading Scheme (ETS). The Coalition’s opponent Labor is committed to an ETS approach which is empirically unsuccessful, accordingly counterproductive, and is utterly fraudulent in that the Labor Government will (if re-elected) would fraudulently sell licenses to pollute the one common atmosphere of all countries on Earth. In contrast, the Coalition appears to be opposed to an ETS because it would increase household expenses and make Australian industry less competitive internationally. The climate criminal Coalition is quite happy to allow Australian companies to keep using the one common atmosphere and ocean of all countries on earth as an industrial sewer (see Climate change inaction”, “climate crisis”, “climate emergency”, “climate genocide”, “climate injustice”, “Greenhouse gases).

37. Environmental destruction, environmental vandalism. Both the Coalition and Labor are committed to unlimited coal, gas and iron ore exports that in terms of annual per capita Domestic plus Exported GHG pollution (74 t per person per year) make Australia one of the world's worst annual per capita GHG polluters. The Coalition and Labor have approved Queensland mining and port developments that threaten the Great Barrier Reef which at current rates of global GHG pollution will be doomed within 20 years. Both the Coalition and Labor approve continued deforestation of the world's best forest carbon sinks, the export of brown coal from Victoria, and a counterproductive coal to gas transition for power generation (depending upon the gas leakage, gas bring can be dirtier GHG-wise than coal burning). In addition to being committed to effective climate change inaction, the climate criminal Coalition wants to fast-track environment impact-based approvals for mining and industrial developments and thus fast-tracking environmental destruction (see Climate change inaction”, “climate crisis”, “climate emergency”, “climate genocide”, “climate injustice”, “Greenhouse gases).

38. Falsehood, false witness. Both Coalition and Labor politicians are involved in endless spin and falsehood. Thus Coalition and Labor MPs endlessly proclaim that democracy-by-genocide Apartheid Israel is a “democracy” whereas the Awful Truth is that only 7% of 12 million Palestinians and only 14% of the 5.8 million Palestinians actually living in Palestine (the adults of 1.6 million Palestinian Israelis) can vote for the government ruling all of Palestine, and that 6 million Palestinians are forbidden to even step foot in their own country. The Coalition has axed the expert Climate Commission and adumbrated removal of the Climate Change Authority, thus eliminating major sources of expert science-based advice on climate change and leaving the Australian public largely at the mercy of climate change denialist falsehood from the dominant US Murdoch media

39. Fiji. The previous Labor Government had a policy of offensive hostility to the unfortunately unelected government of Fiji which has nevertheless provided a good example of advancing democracy by demanding that Fiji media should be owned by Fiji citizens (this resulting in the Murdoch-owned Fiji Times being sold to Indian Fijian Mahendra Patel). Conversely, in Australia the US Murdoch media empire has 70% of Australian newspaper readership and Australia is a Murdochracy, Lobbyocracy, Corporatocracy in which Big Money buys politicians, parties, policies, public perception of reality, votes and political power. Australia is insistent in isolating Fiji but adopts a contrary policy to Sri Lanka’s Tamil Genocide. While pro-Zionist, US lackey Canada will boycott the forthcoming Commonwealth Heads of Government (CHOGM) meeting in Sri Lanka; Australia under both Coalition and Labor Governments ignores the evidence of horrendous Sri Lankan atrocities, supports the war criminal Sri Lankan authorities and supports Australian Government attendance at CHOGM (see “Tamil Genocide”).

40. Free speech, freedom of speech. The Coalition has been a willing accomplice with Labor in the degradation and dumbing down of Australian universities whose education of 250,000 overseas students each year is worth about $16 billion pa. This has been a slow strangling of the goose that laid the golden egg. The education of overseas students is worth about $16 billion per year to Australia but Labor, from Dawkins and the Hawke Government onwards (the re-introduction of fees and the Dawkinization of Australian universities with the forced fusion of the vocational Colleges of Advanced Education with teaching and research universities), has been hell-bent on dismantling quality universities in Australia. Gillard Labor has continued this trend, so that universities are now deregulated to permit a flood of inferior students with consequent course dumbing-down. Gillard Labor slashed university funding by $4 billion, cut $0.5 billion from university research, and recently slashed $2.8 billion from universities to pay for a further $2.4 billion for the intellectual child abuse of private religious schools. Half of undergraduate teaching is now done on the cheap by part-time academics. Indeed Universities Australia (the former Australian Vice Chancellors Committee) unsuccessfully pleaded with the Gillard Government over the huge threat to academic freedom and to the teaching of 250,000 overseas students posed by the draconian, US-linked Defense Trade Controls Bill (10 years in prison for an academic scientist who mentions any of thousands of things to overseas students without a permit from the government). Anti-racist Jews are inescapably morally obliged to adhere to “never again to anyone” but have been egregiously and falsely defamed as “anti-Semites” by Coalition MPs for supporting Boycotts, Divestment and Sanctions (BDS) against Apartheid Israel (as indeed have been all those supporting BDS). The Coalition has promised to cut off all Federal funds for anti-racist Jewish and non-Jewish academics who support Boycott, Divestment and Sanctions against Apartheid Israel, a huge attack on academic freedom and on anti-racist Jews in particular (see also “Academic freedom”, “Anti-racist Jews”, :Censorship”, “Universities”).

41. Gas, gas (conventional, coal seam gas, and fracking-derived gas). Both the Coalition and Labor support unlimited gas extraction (conventional, coal seam gas, and fracking-derived gas), gas export and gas burning whereas Australia had already in 2011 exceeded its “fair share” of the world's terminal GHG pollution budget that must not be exceeded if the world is to have a 75% chance of avoiding a catastrophic 2C temperature rise. Labor has repeatedly supported a coal to gas transition for power whereas the reality is that, depending upon the degree of gas leakage, gas burning for power can be dirtier GHG-wise than coal burning. Even if gas burning were clean-er than coal burning, the Coalition- and Labor-approved building of gas-fired power plants with lifetimes of circa 40 years simply blocks the urgently needed progress to 100% renewable energy. The Carbon Tax on gas fugitive emissions was scandalously under-estimated by Labor by a factor of 140-330, these making fugitive emissions essentially tax-free. Apprised of this huge scandal, the Coalition has ignored it and allows its corporate climate criminal friends and campaign fund donors to defraud the taxpayer of billions of dollars (see “Carbon Tax and Emissions Trading Scheme”, “Corruption:, “Greenhouse gases”, “Natural gas”, “natural gas (conventional, coal seam gas, and fracking-derived)).

42. Gay rights, gay marriage. Despite the Australian Labor Party being in favor of same sex marriage, former Labor PM Gillard opposed this reform and Gillard Labor together with the Coalition effectively blocked this reform in the Federal Parliament. The Coalition opposes this reform in keeping with its appalling record of human rights abuse. Both Coalition and Labor Governments have provided huge taxpayer subsidies for private schools that impose sexist, sexual guilt, homophobic and misogynist views on children in a process of gross intellectual child abuse.

43. Gender politics. Former Labor PM Julia Gillard made an impassioned speech against misogyny (the “Misogyny Speech”) that was well received by many women and men but she has subsequently sought to play the “gender card” in an unacceptable, unfair, dishonest and abusive fashion. Of course the ultimate in misogyny is the mass murder of women and their children and pro-war Coalition and Labor Governments have helped make most Australians complicit in the following atrocities (under-5 infant deaths in parentheses): the Zionist-backed US War on Muslims (6 million), the post-1990 Iraqi Genocide (2 million) and the post-2001 Afghan Genocide (3 million). A Coalition Government under John Howard made a massive contribution to mass murder of Iraqi men, women and children through Australia’s illegal and war criminal invasion of Iraq.

44. Genocide. Genocide is defined by Article 2 of the UN Genocide Convention as “acts committed with intent to destroy, in whole or in part, a national, ethnical, racial or religious group”. Pro-war, pro-Zionist, US lackey Coalition and Labor Governments have helped make most Australians complicit in the following genocidal atrocities (deaths from violence and from violently-imposed deprivation in parentheses): post-1950 US Asian wars (38 million), the post-1990 Muslim Genocide (12 million), the post-1990 Iraqi Genocide (4.6 million), the post-2001 Afghan Genocide (5.5 million), the post-1936 Palestinian Genocide ( 2.0 million), and the continuing, post-1788 Aboriginal Genocide (2 million, annual; avoidable deaths 9,000 out of an Aboriginal population of 0.5 million).

45. Great Barrier Reef. The world’s coral started dying off from ocean warming and acidification when atmospheric CO2 reached 320 ppm. The atmospheric CO2 has now reached 400 ppm whereas it had previously not exceeded 280 ppm for the previous 800,000 years. Coral experts say that the world’s coral reefs face irreversible decline when the atmospheric CO2 reaches 450 ppm – and at current rates of pollution that will be in about 20 years’ time. The Coalition’s and Labor's climate criminal policy of unlimited coal, gas and iron ore exports means that Australia's Domestic plus Exported GHG pollution will increase from 1,512 Mt CO2-e in 2009 to 2,578 Mt CO2-e in 2020 and that Australia will ultimately exceed by a factor of three (3) the whole world's terminal greenhouse gas (GHG) pollution budget of 600 Gt CO2 that must not be exceeded if the world is to have a 75% chance of avoiding a catastrophic 2C temperature rise. Coalition and Labor policies of climate change inaction and support for massive coal exports via the Queensland coast doom the Great Barrier Reef.

46. Greenhouse gases. The Coalition’s and Labor's climate criminal policy of unlimited coal, gas and iron ore exports means that Australia's Domestic plus Exported GHG pollution will increase from 1,512 Mt CO2-e in 2009 to 2,578 Mt CO2-e in 2020 and that Australia will exceed by a factor of three (3) the whole world's terminal greenhouse gas (GHG) pollution budget of 600 Gt CO2 that must not be exceeded if the world is to have a 75% chance of avoiding a catastrophic 2C temperature rise. It is estimated that climate change inaction may result in the avoidable deaths of 10 billion people this century (see also Climate change inaction”, “climate crisis”, “climate emergency”, “climate genocide”, “climate injustice”, “Greenhouse gases”).

47. Health. Under both Coalition and Labor an estimated 66,000 Australians die preventably each year, this being linked to egregious Coalition and Labor dereliction and compounded by Coalition and Labor commitment to an estimated $125 billion long term accrual cost for Australia's part in the Neocon American- and Zionist Imperialist-backed US War on Terror that has killed 9 million Muslims (half of them children) since 2001 through violence or violently-imposed deprivation, this moral and fiscal perversion being associated with 12 x 66,000 = 792,000 Australian preventable deaths and 12 x 9,000 = 108,000 Indigenous Australian preventable deaths since 2001. Coalition commitment to carbon burning kills 10,000 Australians each year and will kill 30,000 Australians in this way if the Abbott Coalition Government lasts full-term.

48. Highways. For reasons of transport efficiency and overall societal energy efficiency, governments should be investing in highly energy-efficient, renewable energy-powered rail mass transit rather than in highways. The pro-fossil fuels, anti-environment Coalition and Labor think otherwise, are committed to pork-barreling highways and have been subsidizing oil-based transport to the tune of circa $10 billion per year. In this area both the Coalition and Labor are involved in crass, stupid, and ignorant political corruption. About 10,000 Australians die each year from the effects of pollutants from carbon burning, the breakdown being 5,000 (coal burning for power), 2,000 (vehicle exhaust) and 3,000 (other carbon burning excluding bush fires) (see also “Greenhouse gases”, “Rail”, “rail transport ”, “Roads”, “road transport”).

49. Homosexuals, homosexual rights. Despite the Australian Labor Party being in favor of same sex marriage, PM Julia Gillard was opposed and Gillard Labor and the Coalition effectively blocked this reform in the Federal Parliament. Coalition and Labor Governments have provided huge taxpayer subsidies for religious private schools that impose sexist, sexual guilt, homophobic and misogynist views on children in a process of egregious intellectual child abuse.

50. Human rights. Successive Coalition and Labor Governments have been complicit in gross human rights violations abroad as part of the US Alliance which has grossly violated the UN Charter, the UN Rights of the Child Convention and the Geneva Convention in the post-1990 Iraqi Genocide and the post-2001 Afghan Genocide. Domestically, successive Coalition and Labor Governments have grossly violated human rights in relation to the imprisonment without charge or trial of thousands of refugee men, women and children; the race-based exclusion of NT Indigenous Australians, Afghan refugees fleeing the Afghan Genocide and Tamil refugees fleeing the Tamil Genocide from the 1975 Racial Discrimination Act; the violation of Australian human rights by the Neocon American- and Zionist Imperialist-inspired Australian anti-terrorism laws; and failure to protect Australians from gross human rights abuse by Apartheid Israeli state terrorism and US state terrorism (see “Apartheid Israel”, “Israel” and “Opiate drugs”).

51. Imprisonment of uncharged refugee men, women and children. Labor has a policy of highly abusively imprisoning tens of thousands of refugee men; women and children without charge or trial in remote concentration camps (see “Asylum seekers”, “Refugees”).

52. Inequity, intergenerational inequity, intergenerational injustice. Labor's neoliberal commitment to inequity reached a new low when it changed welfare arrangements for single mothers (and single parents in general) leaving this highly vulnerable group and their children about $100 per week worse off and thus consigning already impoverished single parents and their children to dire poverty (see “Mothers” and “Single Parents”). The neoliberal Coalition has taken this neoliberal War on the Poor to further depths by cutting back on low income superannuation benefits. Both the neoliberal Coalition and neoliberal Labor are committed to Australian Educational Apartheid that cements egregious social inequity in a rich society in which the gulf between rich and poor is widening. The climate criminal Coalition is leaving a huge Carbon Debt for future generations. Thus it is estimated that for every $1 paid for coal, future generations will have to spend $2-$3 in today's dollars on requisite generation of biochar to reduce atmospheric CO2 (for every $1 for gas there will be a similar debt of $0.6-$1.0 for subsequent requisite biochar production) – a huge burden of intergenerational inequity and the coal-based Carbon Debt thus incurred under the 3-yeat Abbott Coalition Government is estimated to be $300-450 billion.

53. Infanticide. Successive pro-war, pro-Zionist, US lackey Coalition and Labor Governments have made most Australians complicit in the passive mass murder of millions of Muslim children through violently-imposed deprivation. Thus under-5 year old infant deaths (90% avoidable and due to horrendous, Australia-complicit US Alliance war crimes) total 6 million (post-1990 US War on Muslims), 4.4 million (post-2001 US War on Terror), 2 million (post-1990 Iraqi Genocide), and 3 million (post-2001 Afghan Genocide). A Coalition Government under John Howard made a massive contribution to the post-invasion passive mass murder of 0.8 million Iraqi children through Australia’s illegal and war criminal invasion of Iraq.

54. Iraqi Genocide, Iraqi Holocaust, Iraq War. The war criminal Howard Coalition Government ordered Australia’s illegal and war criminal invasion of Iraq. Australian forces were present in Occupied Iraq under Labor PM Kevin Rudd and only finally left Occupied Iraq in August 2011 during the second term as Labor PM of Julia Gillard. The illegal Iraq War (2003-2011) was associated with 1.5 million violent deaths, 1.2 million avoidable deaths from war-imposed deprivation, 5-6 million refugees and 0.8 million under-5 infant deaths (90% avoidable and due to horrendous US Alliance and Australian war crimes). Labor was party to the Gulf War and Sanctions war against Iraq that was associated with 0.2 million violent deaths, 1.7 million avoidable deaths from war-imposed deprivation, and 1.2 million under-5 infant deaths (90% avoidable and due to horrendous US Alliance and Australian war crimes in gross violation of the Geneva Convention). The war criminal Coalition and Labor MPs should face justice at the hands of the International Criminal Court (ICC).

55. Iron ore exports. Iron ore exports carry an implicit greenhouse gas (GHG) pollution associated with subsequent iron and steel manufacture. The Coalition and Labor's climate criminal policy of unlimited coal, gas and iron ore exports means that Australia's Domestic plus Exported GHG pollution will increase from 1,512 Mt CO2-e in 2009 to 2,578 Mt CO2-e in 2020 and that Australia will exceed by a factor of three (3) the whole world's terminal greenhouse gas (GHG) pollution budget of 600 Gt CO2 that must not be exceeded if the world is to have a 75% chance of avoiding a catastrophic 2C temperature rise. It is estimated that climate change inaction may result in the avoidable deaths of 10 billion people this century (see also “Greenhouse gases”).

56. Israel (see Apartheid Israel), Israeli state terrorism. While numerous anti-racist Jewish Australians are opposed to Israeli Apartheid and the ongoing Palestinian Genocide, pro-Zionist, US lackey Coalition and Labor (the Lib-Labs or Liberal-Laborals) have spurned their advice in favor of advice from genocidal racist Israeli war criminals and their Australian supporters. Labor has comprehensively failed to protect Australians from Israeli violence that has included the shooting, torturing, kidnapping, illegal imprisonment and robbing of Australian citizens. The Coalition and Labor supported Apartheid Israel when it was bombing 25,000 Australians in Lebanon in 2006, and was craven in its responses to the repeated kidnapping of Australians in international waters and the large-scale forging of Australian passports for Israeli terrorism purposes. Both the Coalition and Labor are in receipt of financial support from the proceeds of crime of a Zionist who was Australia's biggest white collar criminal; oppose Boycott, Divestment and Sanctions (BDS) against Apartheid Israel; rubbish and defame anti-racist Jewish and non-Jewish supporters of BDS; and put Apartheid Israeli interests before those of Australia and Australia’s international reputation. Both the Coalition and Labor have disgraced Australia by making it one of the world's strongest allies of Apartheid Israel and refuse to support the UN Palestinian statehood vote and the Durban I, II and III objections to Israeli Apartheid. While PM Kevin Rudd was removed because of opposition to the Mining Tax, the people who removed him were members of the pro-Zionist Gillard faction i.e. PM Kevin Rudd, one of Australia's most popular PMs, was found to be not pro-Zionist enough in objecting to the Israeli kidnapping of Australians in international waters and the forging of Australian passports, and was removed in an overnight pro- Zionist-led Coup. Labor will never achieve government again as long as it contains pro-Zionists supporting the Apartheid Israel rogue state. However the Coalition is even more wedded to the Apartheid state.

57. Julian Assange. As outlined under:”Assange”, both the US lackey Coalition and US lackey Labor have betrayed this Australian who is a world hero for exposing US war crimes and subversion.

58. Kakadu. Kakadu in Arnhem Land is Australia’s largest terrestrial national park. However it is under great threat from climate change, sea level rise, salinization, introduced plant and animal pests and biodiversity loss. The climate criminal climate change inaction policies of both the Coalition Government and the Labor Opposition threaten Kakadu and other Australian environmental treasures (see Climate change inaction”, “climate crisis”, “climate emergency”, “climate genocide”, “climate injustice”, “greenhouse gases”, “National Parks”). .

59. Knowledge nation. Labor has spouted rhetoric about the “knowledge nation” and the “education revolution” but has failed to address Australian Educational Apartheid (see “Education” and “Educational Apartheid”), has slashed funding for universities (see “Universities”), has slashed funding for university research (see “Science”), and indeed has criminalized the free speech of academic scientists (university science academics are threatened with 10 years in prison via the US-linked Defense Trade Controls Bill if they mention any of thousands of things specified in a huge Defense and Strategic Goods List to overseas students without a permit from the Australian Defense Force or the Australian Public Service). Under the Coalition and Labor, 80% of NT Aboriginal children fail basic literacy and numeracy standards, 47% of Australians are functionally illiterate and 53% are functionally innumerate. Under the new Coalition Government it will be Business As Usual (BAU).

60. Lesbians. Despite the Australian Labor Party as a whole being in favor of same sex marriage, former Labor PM Julia Gillard (who lives unmarried with a male partner) was opposed and with Coalition support Gillard Labor effectively blocked this reform in the Federal Parliament. Labor provides huge taxpayer subsidies for private schools that impose sexist, sexual guilt, homophobic and misogynist views on children in a process of intellectual child abuse. The new PM Tony Abbott is a conservative Catholic, opposes same sex marriage and opposes a conscience vote on this matter for Coalition MPs (see “Gay rights”, “gay marriage”,Homosexuals”, “homosexual rights”, “Marriage equality”, “Same sex marriage”).

61. Logging. The Coalition and Labor continue to support logging of South East Australian forests, resources that are the best forest carbon sinks in the world. The climate criminal Coalition and Labor policy of unlimited coal and gas exports that helps worsen climate change risks to Australian forests (especially due to more frequent and more intense bush fires associated with global warming) is compounded by its policy of logging the best forest carbon sinks in the world. (see “Deforestation”).

62. Lying. Both Coalition and Labor politicians are involved in endless spin and falsehood. Thus PM Julia Gillard notoriously promised before the 2010 election that “There will be no carbon tax by a government I lead” and then promptly introduced a Carbon Tax-ETS when barely re-elected. The Lib-Lab Mainstream in Australia endlessly proclaim that democracy-by-genocide Apartheid Israel is a “democracy” whereas the Awful Truth is that only 7% of 12 million Palestinians and only 14% of the 5.8 million Palestinians actually living in Palestine under Apartheid Israeli rule (the adults of 1.6 million Palestinian Israelis) can vote for the government ruling all of Palestine, and that 6 million Palestinians are forbidden to even step foot in their own country. The most serious lie is the Labor assertion that “we are tackling climate change for a clean energy future” whereas the reality is the opposite (also see “Mendacity”).

63. Marriage equality. Despite the Australian Labor Party as a whole being in favor of same sex marriage, former Labor PM Julia Gillard (who lives unmarried with a male partner) was opposed and with Coalition support Gillard Labor effectively blocked this reform in the Federal parliament. Labor provides huge taxpayer subsidies for private schools that impose sexist, sexual guilt, homophobic and misogynist views on children in a process of intellectual child abuse. The new PM Tony Abbott is a conservative Catholic, opposes same sex marriage and opposes a conscience vote on this matter for Coalition MPs (see “Gay rights, gay marriage”, Homosexuals”, “homosexual rights”, “Lesbian”, “Marriage equality”, “Same sex marriage”).

64. Mainstream Media, Mainstream media censorship, Mainstream media lying. Labor has been legitimately if hypocritically criticized by the Coalition and by egregiously censoring Australian oligopoly Mainstream media for wanting to impose government controls on media freedom of speech in Murdochracy, Lobbyocracy and Corporatocracy Australia. However the Coalition substantially owes huge electoral support to the Murdoch media that owns 14 out of 21 major Australian newspapers and has a dirty record when it comes to censorship. Thus anti-racists Jews are inescapably morally obliged to adhere to “never again to anyone” but have been egregiously and falsely defamed as “anti-Semites” by Coalition MPs for supporting Boycotts, Divestment and Sanctions (BDS) against Apartheid Israel (as indeed have been all those supporting BDS). Further, the Coalition has promised to cut off all Federal funds for anti-racist Jewish and non-Jewish academics who support Boycott, Divestment and Sanctions against Apartheid Israel. “Publish or perish” in today’s Australian universities means that such anti-racist Jews will not be able to do their research and will be lose their academic jobs and careers and will have to seek academic careers overseas as did Jewish academics in Nazi Germany (see “Anti-racist Jews”, “Anti-Jewish anti-Semitism”).

65. Mass infanticide, mass paeodocide. Successive pro-war, pro-Zionist, US lackey Coalition and Labor Governments have made most Australians complicit in the passive mass murder of millions of Muslim children through violently-imposed deprivation. Thus under-5 year old infant deaths (90% avoidable and due to horrendous, Australia-complicit US Alliance war crimes in gross violation of Articles 55 and 56 of the Geneva Convention relative to the Protection of Civilian Persons in Time of War ) total 6 million (post-1990 US War on Muslims), 4.4 million (post-2001 US War on Terror), 2 million (post-1990 Iraqi Genocide), 1.3 million (post-1992 Somali Genocide), and 3 million (post-2001 Afghan Genocide).

66. Mass murder. Pro-war, US lackey Coalition and Labor Governments have been complicit in the following atrocities (deaths from violence and from violently-imposed deprivation in parentheses): the Iraq War (4.6 million) and the Afghan War (5.5 million) (see also. “Mass infanticide”, “mass paeodocide”).

67. Mendacity. Labor politicians are involved in endless spin, falsehood and mendacity. Thus PM Julia Gillard notoriously promised before the 2010 election that “There will be no carbon tax by a government I lead” and then promptly introduced a Carbon Tax-ETS when re-elected. The Lib-Lab Mainstream in Australia endlessly proclaim that democracy-by-genocide Apartheid Israel is a “democracy” whereas the Awful Truth is that only 7% of 12 million Palestinians and only 14% of the 5.8 million Palestinians actually living in Palestine under Apartheid Israeli rule (the adults of 1.6 million Palestinian Israelis) can vote for the government ruling all of Palestine, and that 6 million Palestinians are forbidden to even step foot in their own country. The most serious lie is the Labor assertion that “we are tackling climate change for a clean energy future” whereas the reality is the opposite (see “Lying”).

68. Mothers. Neoliberal Labor reached a new low when it changed welfare arrangements for single mothers (and single parents in general) leaving this highly vulnerable group and their children about $100 per week worse off. The neoliberal Coalition Government has been happy to keep these unjust arrangements. Successive neoliberal Coalition and Labor Governments have made the majority of Australians voting Labor or Coalition (circa 80% of voters) complicit in the horrendous under-5 infant mortality in Occupied Iraq and Occupied Afghanistan totaling 2.0 million infant deaths since 1990 in Iraq and 3.0 million since 2001 in Afghanistan, 90% avoidable and due to horrendous US Alliance and Australian war crimes in gross contravention of Articles 55 and 56 of the Geneva Convention relative to the Protection of Civilian Persons in Time of War. Successive Coalition and Labor Governments have imprisoned refugee mothers and their children without charge or trial in remote concentration camps and adopted the policy of shipping all refugees arriving by boat to such imprisonment in malaria- and dengue-infested Papua New Guinea. The Coalition has taken a further step of saying that all refugees who arrived by boats and are currently on temporary protection visas will eventually be deported to another country (also see “Single parents”).

69. Murray River, Murray-Darling. The Murray-Darling River system is the biggest such system in Australia and is threatened by anti-environment, corporatist Coalition and Labor failure to back science-based return of the minimum required 4,000 GL water per year to keep the system healthy (see “Environmental destruction”, “environmental vandalism”).

70. National Disability Insurance Scheme (NDIS). The National Disability Insurance Scheme (NDIS) is generally regarded as a positive achievement of the Labor Government and the Coalition Opposition but can be viewed critically in relation to (a) why it took so long to do this; (b) payment for the scheme will come from an increase in the health care levy i.e. a likely scenario of more money for improvement in quality of life at the expense of saving lives (e.g. 66,000 Australians die preventably each year); and (c) the need to ensure that the scheme is carefully managed to prevent profligacy at the expense of genuine need and health care in general.

71. National interest. Both the Coalition and Labor have grossly violated the national interest by acting as slavish lackeys of the US and thence of Apartheid Israel, permitting US and Apartheid Israeli subversion and perversion of MPs and institutions and allowing egregious violation of the privacy of Australian with the resultant information being delivered to the US and thence to Apartheid Israel. 1,500 million Muslims live in countries
