Australian Labor Party
| Australian Labor Party |
|Formation||8 May 1901|
|One of the two major parties in Australian politics|
Formal political factions
The Labor Party has always had a left wing and a right wing, but since the 1970s it has been organised into formal factions, to which party members may belong and often pay an additional membership fee. The two largest factions are Labor Right and Labor Left. The Labor Right generally supports free-market policies and the US alliance, and tends to be conservative on some social issues. The Labor Left favours more state intervention in the economy, is generally less enthusiastic about the US alliance and is more focused on social-liberal issues. The national factions are themselves divided into sub-factions, primarily state-based such as Centre Unity in New South Wales and Labor Forum in Queensland. Some trade unions are affiliated with the Labor Party and are also factionally aligned.
Trouble getting power
The Liberal Party is the state-bearing party (with deeper ties to the deep state than Labor, similar to the Tories in the UK). With most press barons, business leaders and senior bureaucracy supporting the Liberals, Labor has historically had some trouble gaining and retaining power.
The deep state has engineered several campaigns to unseat Labor, such as in 1949, when Prime Minister Ben Chifley and Foreign Affairs Minister Herbert Vere Evatt were considered ‘unsafe’ and deposed; or most famously in 1975, with the coup against PM Gough Whitlam. The party is laced with deep state operatives (Gareth Evans, Bob Carr...). It has been a target of sexual blackmail operations, most noticeably exposed as happening in New South Wales in the 1980s (Lionel Murphy, Neville Wran), but also possible a wider operation led by people like Kim Beazley Sr..
Since the Whitlam coup, most Labor leaders have either been "confidential informers" to the US (Bob Hawke), or deep state actors (Kevin Rudd). Several MPs have been selected Young Global Leaders by the World Economic Forum.
ALP Premier Daniel Andrews in Victoria led the longest lockdowns in the world and forced the vast majority of the population to take the COVID-19 vaccines with coercive measures. Michael Gunner Leader of the Northern Territory government, conducted an equally ruthless policy, as did Mark McGowan, the Premier of Western Australia and Annastacia Palaszczuk in Queensland. All Labor state governments introduced policies to "lock out" the "unvaccinated" from the economy.
In November 2021, former NSW Premier Bob Carr called for the "unvaccinated" to "pay for their stupidity". Former Prime Minister Kevin Rudd contacted Pfizer CEO Albert Bourla in June 2021 to "expedite the delivery of vaccines".
In December 2021, Rudd called Senator Gerard Rennick, one of the few public voices against the deep state COVID-policy "a far right, anti-vaxx nut job." Kevin Rudd is President and CEO of the Asia Society with a salary of $988,541. The Asia Society is part-financed by Pfizer.
Corruption is widespread in the state branches.
Eddy Obeid was member of the New South Wales Legislative Council between 1991 and 2011, representing the Labor Party. A series of three investigative hearings by the Independent Commission Against Corruption between 2012 and 2014 into the conduct of Obeid and others found that Obeid acted in a corrupt manner in relation to cafe leases at Circular Quay and that he misused his position as a Member of Parliament to benefit his family's financial interests in both Direct Health Solutions and in water licences over the family's Bylong Valley farm. In June 2014, the Commission recommended the Director of Public Prosecutions (DPP) consider prosecuting Obeid for the offence of misconduct in public office over his attempts to influence bureaucrats and Labor colleagues to benefit his family. In 2013, the DPP announced that it would be prosecuting Obeid for misconduct in public office, and a criminal trial in the Supreme Court of New South Wales began in February 2016. Obeid pleaded not guilty; however, a jury found Obeid guilty of misconduct in public office. He was sentenced to five years in jail with a non-parole period of three years. In separate proceedings, Obeid, together with one of his sons, Moses, and former Labor minister, Ian Macdonald, were charged with conspiracy for Macdonald to conduct misconduct in public office and grant a mining lease over the Obeid’s family farm at Bylong. In July 2021, all three were found guilty; and on 21 October Obeid was sentenced to seven years in jail, with a non-parole period of five years and three months.
Adem Somyurek was a member if in Victorian Labor premier Daniel Andrews’s cabinet as the minister for small business and local government. In his 2021 Independent Broad-based Anti-corruption Commission testimony, Somyurek admitted that he arranged to put his own son on the payroll at the electorate office of a factional ally. Somyurek pocketed the salary himself as payment for a debt owed by the MP to Somyurek. His staff members also spent time organizing for the Right faction of Labor, also on the public payroll. While sitting in state-funded offices, Somyurek’s staffers ran right-wing branch meetings. While collecting state-funded salaries, they "harvested" ALP ballot papers from members of stacked-out branches before filling them out in bulk to secure the preselection of right-wing factional allies.
|Kim Beazley||“In the event of a war between the United States and China, Australia would have absolutely no alternative but to line up militarily beside the US. Otherwise the alliance would be effectively dead and buried, something that Australia could never afford to see happen.””||Kim Beazley||2006|
|Paul Keating||“The Albanese Government’s complicity in joining with Britain and the United States in a tripartite build of a nuclear submarine for Australia under the AUKUS arrangements represents the worst international decision by an Australian Labor government since...World War One...And that approach was to have the United States supply nuclear submarines for deep and joint operations against China...|
And how did this come to be? The answer lies in Anthony Albanese’s reliance on two seriously unwise ministers. Penny Wong and Richard Marles....Labor’s valiant three fell immediately into line – they would join the neo-cons in the Office of National Intelligence, ASPI, the country’s principal US apologist, the security agencies and the hapless Defence department....Indeed, two of our major dailies, the Sydney Morning Herald and the Age, have for five years now, argued the notion of war against China. Or readiness for war.”
