US- , Zionist- And Corporate-Perverted Australian Labor Vilifies
And Rejects Australia-First Ex-PM Kevin Rudd

By Dr Gideon Polya

28 February, 2012

Australia has just witnessed a week of political high drama in which ex-PM Kevin Rudd, deposed in a pro-Zionist-led 24-hour Coup in favor of pro-Zionist Julia Gillard on 23-24 June 2010,  challenged PM Gillard for the top job but failed to win the support of the Caucus of Federal Labor MPs by a margin of 71 to 31. The saturation Australian  Mainstream media coverage of a week that saw vitriolic character assassination of ex-PM Rudd by Julia Gillard and leading  Gillard supporters somehow managed to miss 3 huge Elephants in the Room in relation to the 2010 Coup and the appalling, vitriolic 2012 character assassination of Australia-first Kevin Rudd - the role of foreign interests, notably the endlessly subversive US, Apartheid Israel and foreign-owned mining corporations. Just because the truth is buried does not mean it will go away.

The neoconservative, corrupt and cowardly Australian Labor Party (ALP) in addition to being an Anti-Labor Party, an Alternative Liberal Party, and Another Liberal Party (the Liberal Party being the major Australian conservative party), has now entrenched itself as an American-lackey Labor Party, an Apartheid Israel-supporting Labor Party and an Anti-Australian Labor Party, these transformations sustained by its transmutation into an Australian Lying Party and an Anti-science Labor Party. Indeed, through  its complicity in the post-1990 US War on Muslims (12 million deaths), its ignoring  of the views of anti-racist  Jews and its false identification of race-based, genocidal Apartheid Israel with all Jews the Australia Labor Party has become an Anti-Semitic Labor Party, an anti-Arab anti-Semitic Labor Party and an anti-Jewish anti-Semitic Labor Party.

The transformation of the formerly anti-war, anti-racist, pro-environment , pro-equity, pro-human rights and progressive Australian Labor Party (ALP) into a neoconservative Abominable Labor Party is outlined below.

ALP = American-lackey Labor Party.   Outstanding expatriate Australian journalist John Pilger  has stated: "Australian intelligence agencies are, in effect, branches of the main office in Washington . The Australian military has played a regular role as US mercenary. When prime minister Gough Whitlam tried to change this in 1975 and secure Australia's partial independence, he was dismissed by a governor-general using archaic “reserve powers” who was revealed to have intelligence connections. WikiLeaks has given Australians a rare glimpse of how their country is run. In 2010, leaked US cables disclosed that key government figures in the Labor Party coup that brought Julia Gillard to power were "protected" sources of the US embassy: what the CIA calls “assets”. Kevin Rudd, the prime minister she ousted, had displeased Washington by being disobedient, even suggesting that Australian troops withdraw from Afghanistan . In the wake of her portentous rise to power, Gillard attacked WikiLeaks as “illegal” and her Attorney-General threatened to withdraw Assange's passport. Yet the Australian Federal Police reported that Assange and WikiLeaks had broken no law" (see "John Pilger: Threat to Assange is a threat to us all", GLW, 5 February 2012: http://www.greenleft.org.au/node/49948  ).

This transformation comes after about 70 years  of US, UK and religious right  perversion  of Australian democracy. The ALP was kept from power for 20 years by its 1950s split from the fiercely anti-Communist  US-connected, Catholic-dominated Democratic Labor Party. ALP leader Gough Whitlam finally gained office in 1972 after bribing the Catholics with state-funding for Catholic and other  private schools but was eventually dumped in a US-backed Coup on 11 November 1975.  The US was concerned about Whitlam stopping Australia 's involvement in the Vietnam War and his concerns over joint nuclear war-related facilities. Since the 1975 Coup the sine qua non of the ALP has progressively  become “all the way with the USA ”. When Labor Leader Mark Latham promised to bring Australian troops back from Iraq ”by Christmas” he was effectively vetoed by the US ambassador in the 2004 Federal elections and has subsequently been publicly vilified by both the conservative Liberal Party- National Party Coalition and the Labor (collectively known as the Lib-Labs).

ALP = Apartheid Israel-supporting Labor Party. On June 3 2010 Rudd held a lavish dinner at the Lodge for the Zionist Lobby who had been enraged by his (albeit limp-wristed) objection to continuing , large-scale Israeli forging of Australian passports for terrorist purposes and the violent kidnapping of Australians in international waters (the latter and probably the former continuing under pro-Zionist Gillard Labor). While the 2010 Coup was driven by the Mining Lobby over the Mining Tax, US and Zionist hostility to Rudd evidently contributed and the Coup plotters mostly came from the extreme pro-Zionist faction of the Labor Party. Outstanding anti-racist Jewish Australian writer Antony Loewenstein ("My Israel Question", Melbourne University Press) has analyzed the Zionist role in the downfall of Australian PM Rudd and concluded "It is reasonable then to assume from what Sheridan has written that, to one degree or another, Australia's Israel lobby was a factor in, or even perhaps a player in, Rudd's removal from the prime ministership. If so, this is a truly extraordinary and deeply disturbing development in Australia 's political history and merits the closest possible examination" (see Antony Loewenstein, "Does the Zionist lobby have blood on its hands in Australia ?": http://antonyloewenstein.com/2010/07/02/does-the-zionist-lobby-have-blood-on-its-hands-in-australia/  and Gideon Polya, “Pro-Zionist-led Coup ousts Australian PM Rudd”, MWC News, 29 June 2010: http://mwcnews.net/focus/politics/3488-pro-zionist-led-coup.html  ).  Last year pro-Zionist Gillard shamed Australia internationally by overruling FM Rudd and insisting that Australia vote no to statehood for Palestine (noting that the forebears of the Palestinians have continuously inhabited Palestine for thousands of years from the very dawn of agrarian civilization).

The Zionist Lobby ascendancy in Australia mirrors that in the US and is in part associated with the ascendancy of an increasingly Zionist beholden US and perversion of Australia democracy mentioned above. John Kennedy and Robert Kennedy both unsuccessfully sought to have the Zionist Lobbyists registered as agents of a foreign power but assassination terminated such moves. The family of Sirhan Sirhan,  the murderer of Robert Kennedy, was held hostage by the Apartheid Israeli racist Zionist  terrorists.  Just as the US generated US “assets” by sponsored trips to the US so Apartheid Israel and the Zionist Lobby did the same through political donations (including  the proceeds of crime; see “50 ways racist Zionists (RZs) and Israeli state terrorism (IST) threaten Australia and YOUR country too”, Bellaciao, 14 March 2010: http://bellaciao.org/en/spip.php?article19618 ) and sponsored trips to Apartheid Israel (some of the 2010 Coup plotters had been on such trips to Apartheid Israel; see lists of  “Rambamming” Australian politicians and journalists in “I've been to Israel too”, Middle East Reality Check, 10 March 2010: http://middleeastrealitycheck.blogspot.com.au/2009/03/ive-been-to-israel-too.html  ).  

ALP =  Anti-Australian Labor Party. The largely foreign-owned Mining Industry spent a mere $22 million in 2010 to get rid of Rudd over the Mining Tax. Pro-coal, pro-gas, pro-mining Gillard negotiated with a small number of Big Miners and watered down Rudd's egalitarian, Australia-first Mining Tax proposal. Australian journalist  Peter Hartcher stated: “ But consider the savings. The union movement feared for its existence under WorkChoices. So $30 million [for a campaign] is cheap. Kevin Rudd's original mining tax would have collected $12 billion in two years. The latest version projects a tax take of $7.4 billion in two years. The miners saved $4.6 billion for an outlay of just $22 million, a return on investment of 20,800 per cent. This makes political activism one of the few activities in Australia more profitable than mining” (see Peter Hartcher, “Give us $52 million and we will decide who runs the country”, Sydney Morning Herald, National Times, 2 February 2011: http://www.smh.com.au/opinion/politics/give-us-52m-and-we-will-decide-who-runs-the-country-20110201-1aceo.html ).

ALP = Alternative Liberal Party, Another Liberal Party and an Anti-Labor Party. Pro-war, slavishly pro-US, anti-environment , grossly human rights abusing, pro-inequity, pro-Educational Apartheid Labor has utterly betrayed decent, anti-racist, anti-war, pro-human rights, pro-equity Labor voters who are now voting in droves for the Greens and one hopes will put Labor last until it reverts to decent values. At least the Coalition - who have the same policies as neoconservative Labor - have not betrayed Labor voters. Indeed Coalition leader Tony Abbott was deeply upset over Gillard's Malaysian Solution that effectively meant deportation of minors to caging, caning and loss of basic human rights. Extraordinarily, it was revealed that this week 75% of the Labor MPs in the 20 most electorally vulnerable seats effectively supported a Tony Abbott-led Coalition victory rather than support Australia-first Kevin Rudd.

ALP = Australian Lying Party and Anti-science Labor Party. Pro-coal, pro-gas Gillard Labor's endlessly repeated claim that they are "tackling climate change" for a "clean energy future" is utterly false. According to Treasury analysis (see "Strong Growth, Low Pollution": http://cache.treasury.gov.au/treasury/carbonpricemodelling/content/report/
) , ABARE data and US EIA data, under Labor's Carbon Tax-ETS  Australia's Domestic greenhouse gas (GHG) pollution will rise from  578 Mt CO2-e (2010) to 621 Mt CO2-e in 2020, and Australia's annual Domestic plus Exported GHG pollution would increase 1.7-fold in 2020 and 4.2-fold in 2050 relative to that in 2000. Gillard Labor is claiming that "more means less" and that increasing GHG pollution means "tackling climate change" for a "clean energy future" - immense Goebbelsian untruths (see "2011 Climate Change Course": https://sites.google.com/site/300orgsite/2011-climate-change-course  ).

ALP = Anti-Semitic Labor Party. The Australia Labor Party has become an anti-Arab anti-Semitic Labor Party though complicity in the Zionist-backed, post-1990 US War on Muslims that has been associated with 12 million violent deaths plus avoidable deaths from war-imposed deprivation, the breakdown being 4.6 million (Iraq 1990-2012), 2.2 million (Somalia, 1992-2012), 50,000 (Libya, 2011-2012) and 5.6 million (Afghanistan , 2001-2012) (see “Muslim Holocaust, Muslim Genocide”: https://sites.google.com/site/muslimholocaustmuslimgenocide/ ). The Australia Labor Party has become an anti-Jewish anti-Semitic Labor Party though false conflation of race-based, genocidal Apartheid Israel with all Jews, including decent, anti-racist Jews. The Australia Labor Party has become an anti-Jewish anti-Semitic Labor Party through  resolute ignoring of the  opinions of outstanding  anti-racist Jewish scholars (see “Jews Against Racist Zionism”: https://sites.google.com/site/jewsagainstracistzionism/ ) . Such Labor-sidelined anti-racist   Australian Jews include Australia's most eminent and  famous Jewish figure, Sir Isaac Isaacs, the first Australian-born Governor General of Australia, who stated (1946): “ The honour of Jews throughout the world demands the renunciation of political Zionism ” (see: https://sites.google.com/site/jewsagainstracistzionism/isaacs-isaac-sir-isaac-isaacs-first-australia-born-australian-governor-general-denounced-zionism )  and outstanding,  internationally-famous anti-racist Australian Jewish scholars Professor Peter Singer (bioethics, animal liberation) and Professor Dennis Altman (gay rights) who with numerous other outstanding anti-racist Jews have denounced and renounced the race-based Israeli Law of Return that underpins the Palestinian Genocide by Apartheid Israel (see: https://sites.google.com/site/jewsagainstracistzionism/antiracist-australian-jews ). .

Labor is presently finished for decent traditional Labor voters and evidently also for most Australians. Decent,  anti-war, anti-racism, pro-equity, pro-human rights, pro-environment  Labor voters will vote 1 Green and put Labor last until it ever decides to revert to decent values.
