So why would the Liberals say I’ve preferenced the Greens – who have caused a loss of at least $5B in Tasmania business investment, have been responsible for ...

Tasmania is in a Win Win situation standard

Independent JLN Senator for Tasmania Jacqui Lambie has made a comment on a media report which says: “Jacqui’s popularity putting the major parties on edge” and “The surging popularity of Jacqui Lambie could catapult her running mate (Mayor Steve Martin) into the Senate at the expense of Tasmania’s most senior Liberal figure. “JLN senate candidates are not taking any vote for granted and there’s lots of hard work and door knocking to do before the election.  However, now there’s serious independent political competition – both major parties have been finally, forced to promise serious money for vital Tasmanian infrastructure. It means that no matter what the election result – Tasmania is in a win/win situation.  But the only way to ...

Ordinary Australians tricked into standing beside extremists and haters standard

Independent JLN Senator for Tasmania Jacqui Lambie and JLN Senate Candidate Marcus Saltmarsh have released a YouTube Video which shows the difficult choices peace-loving, ordinary Australians face when deciding who has the best policies to deal with the rise of Islamic extremists. “The fact that both Labor and Liberals are happy for ASIO to just watch 190 radicals – our spy agency knows are actively helping ISIS and have not charged them with treason or sedition and put them in jail – has made Australia less safe from terrorist attacks. So it’s clear to all that the major Australian political parties have failed to properly deal with Australian citizens who have chosen to help and assist Islamic extremists.  This political ...

Independent JLN Senator for Tasmania Jacqui Lambie has welcomed the Liberal’s promise to match Labor’s commitment of $150M to the University of Tasmania. “The fact that the Liberals have been forced to promise $15OM in funding to UTAS, vindicates my vote against their plan to deregulate universities.  We’re now in a win / win situation, no matter which party forms government.  Tasmania has an extra $150M – without $100K degrees for our students,” said Senator Lambie. “It shows the important value of having a Tasmanian independent Senator holding the balance of power in the Australian Senate.  Andrew Nicholic, the Liberal member for Bass, underneath the fake smiles today must be seething.  The Liberal’s commitment of $150M shows that he lied ...

How many of PM’s Iftar dinner guests were on ASIO’s radical Islamic watch list? standard

Independent JLN Senator for Tasmania Jacqui Lambie has challenged the Prime Minister to disclose how many of his Iftar dinner guests were on ASIO’s radical Islamic watch list. “The Liberal / National Government has used the current war against Islamic state extremists and their supporters – as an excuse to pass extraordinary laws which undermine basic civil rights for ordinary law-abiding and peace-loving Australian Citizens. Before the civil rights of peace-loving Australians are undermined – why hasn’t our government truly cracked down on the extremists who are actively helping the Islamic state terrorists? Anyone who helps – in any way whatsoever, our enemies could be arrested and charged with Treason or Sedition and face 7 years to life in jail.” ...

Super Trawlers are responsible for wiping out the baitfish in Africa and pose a significant danger to our environment and local fishing industry. I am a pro-development, pro-business politician – but wiping out fisheries for short-term financial gain – makes no economic or environmental sense and must always be opposed.
