Labor should preference JLN and other independents over Greens, in a principled stand against Senate Voting Changes: Lambie standard

JLN Independent Tasmanian Senator Jacqui Lambie has called on Labor Leader Bill Shorten to commit his party to preferencing minor parties over the Greens in the Senate after the Greens did a rushed backroom deal with the Liberals to wipe out independents. “ In the last 24 hours, I’ve listened carefully to the feedback from Tasmanians and the debate in the Senate about these rushed voting changes.  It’s become obvious to me that the Liberals and Greens in doing this deal have underestimated the intelligence and anger of the Australian people,” said Senator Lambie. “Because of the contrived, last minute rush to ram changes through the Parliament, many people view the actions of the Greens and Liberals as too tricky. ...

VDL sale given green light by corrupt Government Process: Lambie standard

JLN Independent Tasmanian Senator Jacqui Lambie has described the Foreign Investment Review Board (FIRB) process as “corrupt” as it was used by the Liberal Government to justify the sale of VDL to overseas interests. “ Everyone knows after an ABC Four Corners Report that our FIRB has failed to do its job properly.  When it comes to offshore corruption, the Liberal Government have made the FIRB blind. Most will remember that a Four Corners Investigation found – Two former board members (FIRB) have confirmed concerns about offshore corruption are rarely discussed, even though $US1.25 trillion worth of corrupt and criminal proceeds from China is estimated to have been spent around the world in the decade to 2012,” said Senator Lambie. “Speaking ...

Changes to Senate Voting Rules and threat of Double D Election a distraction: Lambie standard

JLN Independent Tasmanian Senator Jacqui Lambie has labeled the proposed changes to Senate voting rules and the Liberal Party’s threat of a double dissolution election as a distraction. “The Greens have done a deal with the Liberal party to change the way Australians vote for the Senate.  Its more than likely the Liberals and the Greens will be preferencing each other in Tasmania.  The Greens Leader wants to become a minister in the Turnbull government. So what we really have is a deal being done between the party that wants to decriminalize Ice and the party that wants to increase the GST – because each thinks it will politically benefit from those changes,” said Senator Lambie “This change is a distraction, ...

Halal certification money from Army – must not fund the 190 Australian terrorist supporters being watched by ASIO: Lambie standard

JLN Independent Tasmanian Senator Jacqui Lambie has called on the Liberal Government to give a guarantee that Halal certification money raised by the sale of food to our defence forces – has not found its way to the 190 Australian terrorist supporters who are being monitored and watched by ASIO. “Last week in Senate Estimates committee hearings during the questioning of the chief of our spy agency – it was revealed that they were officially watching 190 Islamic Australians who were collaborators with our enemies in the Islamic state.

Liberals can’t be trusted with the GST: Lambie standard

JLN Independent Tasmanian Senator Jacqui Lambie has released two short 30 sec YouTube videos which show her talking with JLN Victorian Candidates Hugh Dolan and Matt Timson about the Liberals proposed increase in the GST. “ Matt and Hugh like most Australian’s – have seen through the Liberal’s lies on their GST policy.  The Prime Minister says they won’t take a GST to the election, but what about after the next election? It’s clear that the Liberals will break their promise not to increase the GST, should they win the next election. Every JLN Senate Candidate if elected, will oppose any increase in Australia’s GST.  There are much better ways of raising funds and repairing the budget without taking money ...
