Alex talks with filmmaker Joel Gilbert about his Dreams from My Real
Father, a documentary that posits Obama’s real father is was Frank
Marshall Davis, a Communist Party USA propagandist who likely shaped
Obama’s world view during his formative years. Dreams from My Real
Father is now available at the Infowars Store.

Dreams From My Real Father
At age 18, Barack Obama admittedly arrived at Occidental College a
committed revolutionary Marxist. What was the source of Obama’s
foundation in Marxism? Throughout his 2008 Presidential campaign and
term in office, questions have been raised regarding Barack Obama’s
family background, economic philosophy, and fundamental political
ideology. Dreams from My Real Father is the alternative Barack Obama
“autobiography,” offering a divergent theory of what may have shaped
our 44th President’s life and politics. [Sale $14.95]

Investigating Indian mining giant Adani

According to Mining Australia

Regulators are investigating Indian mining giant Adani over conflicting claims it’s cheating the migration system and seeking permanent residency for foreign workers.

Reports by The Australian claim an internal company review by Ernst & Young found none of Adani’s foreign workers were properly registered or accredited to work as engineers in Queensland.

It also claimed most foreign workers had been wrongly imported on short-stay 456 visas, which allow people to visit for meetings but ban most types of work  Adani Coal under Investigation 

I had done some investigation on Adani myself and found it was not so squeaky clean  in its operations back in India,  let alone here in Queensland..

What is Right with Selling QR Coal


Jobs go around the state..

THE AUSTRALIAN Manufacturing Workers Union warned yesterday that up to 100 skilled trade workers could be sacked at QR National’s Redbank workshops.

The AMWU said workers had been told they would either lose their jobs or be forced to move to Toowoomba.

AMWU acting state secretary Rohan Webb said QR National had failed to consult with workers before the announcement that 500 jobs would be cut across the state.

“There are more than 30 positions in the Locomotive Maintenance Department at Redbank, as well as another 20 in the foundry there. They will definitely close them down, and the wagon shop is also under threat,” Mr Webb said.

“The company told some workers there was still a job for them with QRN – but it was in Toowoomba.

MP demands answers, not attacks, on sell-off

07 Jun, 2012 04:00 AM
STATE Member for Mount Isa Rob Katter was handed a personal attack rather than an answer by Queensland treasurer and minister for trade Tim Nicholls after asking whether he would halt the final sale of Queensland Rail (QR) National.The state government’s $3.2 billion stake in QR National came under question as reports emerged that the bulk rail carrier may shed up to 900 jobs.Mr Katter said this raised concerns that the Liberal National Party (LNP) would continue with Labor’s asset sale program.”The LNP champion themselves as a government that will not sell off state assets and I sincerely hope that is the case,” Mr Katter said.”Unfortunately, the LNP Government’s refusal to rule out the further sale of QR National assets only raises concerns that they are planning to follow the course of Labor.”
