Australian Spy Agency’s figures support Trump Immigration Ban standard

Click below to view ASIO answers to Senator Lambie’s questions Independent Senator for Tasmania Jacqui Lambie has called on Australia’s Attorney General and Minister responsible for Australia’s Domestic Spy Agency (ASIO) to detail how many people on our official terror watch list are not Islamic. “Last year the head of our domestic spy agency reluctantly told me, that the majority of the 190 Australian terrorist supporters on their official watch-list were Islamic. In fact, I have a strong suspicion that they are all Islamic – and it’s now up to the Attorney General to prove me wrong,” said Senator Lambie. The Government must stop the cover-up and political correctness – and release full details on our official terror watch list. ...

Independent JLN Senator for Tasmania Jacqui Lambie has called for Australian Defence Force Personnel, Veterans and their Families to continue to make submissions to 3 special Senate Committees. “To some Australians, because of a lack of mainstream media attention, it may come as a surprise that the Senate established 3 separate investigations into important Defence and Veterans Affairs matters.  I urge all people affected by these matters to make a submission.” said Senator Lambie. 1 Suicide by veterans and ex-service personnel On 1 September 2016 the Senate referred the following matter to the Foreign Affairs, Defence and Trade References Committee for inquiry and report by 30 March 2017 2 Operation of the Australian Defence Force’s (ADF) resistance to interrogation (RTI) training On ...

S&P Questions during Senate Estimates Committee Hearings standard

Thursday 20 October 2016 Source : Senate Hansard, Economics Legislation Committee Participants:  Senator Lambie & Mr Wayne Byres – Chairman of the Australian Prudential Regulation Authority (APRA). Senator LAMBIE: In his effort to repair the budget, the Treasurer warned us about the risk to Australia’s AAA credit rating. I think this morning he talked about visiting the ratings agency S&P—or Standard & Poor’s. Do you know if that is correct? Mr Byres: I know it is correct that he talked about it, and I understand that, when he was in New York, he did so, but I was not there for the discussion, so I cannot confirm that. Senator LAMBIE: From your perspective, do you trust the rating assessments of ...

Senate supports Lambie’s call for Army to produce tens of thousands of hrs of official videos, likely to show naked soldiers being abused and sexually denigrated standard

Independent JLN Senator for Tasmania Jacqui Lambie won the support of the Senate this week when her motion (see RTI notice of motion) calling for a production of documents by the Defence Minister passed unopposed. “I was first alerted to the fact that something was very wrong with the training of our Special Force soldiers and others – by SAS whistle-blower Trooper Evan Donaldson. Evan reported to me that the Australian Army for decades have electronically recorded a Resistance to Interrogation (RTI) course where thousands of soldiers have been brutally assaulted, bound, hooded, stripped naked, abused and sexually denigrated.” said Senator Lambie. “So I asked some questions on notice from the Chief of Army – who confirmed in writing the ...

Fair Work (Registered Organisations) standard

This is the third time I have risen to briefly contribute to the debate on the Fair Work (Registered Organisations) Amendment Bill 2014, and for the third time I will vote against this government legislation. In division 3, this legislation takes away fundamental civil rights from blue-collar workers—like the right to silence, the presumption of innocence and freedom of association. I cannot in good conscience support extraordinary legislation which specifically targets union members and blue-collar workers while ignoring white collar crime and criminals. If the government were at the same time to introduce extraordinary legislation to parliament, which applied the same standards to all workers, both blue-collar and white-collar workers, then they would have my support. For example: if the ...

ADJOURNMENT SPEECH 09-11-16 standard

Previously, in the 44th parliament, the Senate voted to support my motion to establish a special investigation. The investigation focused on alleged human rights abuses including torture, sexual assault, abuse and sexual denigration during the Australian Army’s training of our special forces soldiers. I ask that all senators in the next couple of days once again support the re-establishment of this inquiry through a vote for the motion of which I have given notice. Over the next 20 minutes I will detail new evidence from Defence whistleblowers and official written replies from the Army which strengthen the need for this independent inquiry.

Speech: National Rural Women’s Coalition – Leadership and Politics standard

Today I gave a speech to the National Rural Women’s Coalition in Canberra today. Please see below transcript: It was a brutal 10-year battle with the Australian Department of Veterans’ Affairs to try and obtain proper medical treatment and secure all my defence force entitlements that led me to a crossroads. End the suffering once and for all – or change it – for me and everyone who had suffered just as I had. When the former didn’t work – you will have to buy my book next year to read the details – I seized my second chance and I set my course to help myself, and the thousands of veterans who would prefer to face the Taliban again than ...

People power killed off in the Senate standard

Independent JLN Senator for Tasmania Jacqui Lambie last night voted with the Government to give power back to the people over the same-sex marriage question.  “I was very disappointed that Labor, the Greens, and other Crossbench Senators combined to kill off people power in the Senate. Last night, we had an opportunity to put the question of gay marriage before the people of Australia – and politics got in the way,” said Senator Lambie. “I stand by what I said to the Senate yesterday, namely: After the people have their say – no matter what the result – there will be people – who for very good and legitimate reasons – will have very hurt feelings. If a plebiscite of the ...
