The Government has been forced to correct the record.

Foreign Minister Julie Bishop has confirmed Australia is spending $320 million a year on 4,000 scholarships for international students not, as it previously claimed, 10,000 African students.


I don’t know about you, but it makes my blood boil when I discover the Australian Government have given a $320 million dollar education scholarship package for up to 10,000 (***4000***) Africans to come to study in Australia.

Eligible Countries include Algeria, Angola, Benin, Botswana, Burkina Faso, Burundi, Cameroun, Cape Verde, Comoros, Congo(Republic of), Djibouti, Egypt, Ethiopia, The Gambia, Ghana, Kenya, Lesotho, Liberia, Libya, Malawi, Mali, Mauritius, Morocco, Mozambique, Namibia, Nigeria, Rwanda, Sao Tome & Principe, Senegal, Seychelles, Sierra Leone, South Africa, Swaziland, Tanzania, Togo, Tunisia, Uganda, Zambia.

All of their expenses will be paid, including the uni degree.

Am I the only one who thinks this is complete madness?

Over half a trillion dollars in debt and here are the Government and Labor throwing borrowed cash around the globe. It’s an absolute insult to every citizen in Australia and a disgrace to hard working people who slave their guts out to be taxed so people like Julie Bishop can go around big noting themselves on a global stage.

These people are elected to represent you, not nations across the globe. I wish they’d remember that!!!

    This puts to rest any doubts that may have been held as to the intelligence, common sense and capabilities of our elected politicians, most of whom would not know their arse from their elbows. How can our elected government, having been left with a massive deficit, even consider such a massive foreign aid payment when our own economy is struggling and many Australians are either unemployed, living on or close to the poverty line or, in the case of many younger Australians cannot afford the high costs of a university education. Hang your heads in shame.

        My post addresses the same question.

    $320,000,000 to foreign students when our public schools are falling apart? Oh, but of course that doesn’t include the private schools that their kids go to. You know, the schools that are funded by tax payers whilst our kids struggle to get any sort of education in public schools.

      There’s nothing good to be said for the so-called men in power either. Big boys with little boys with their “me, me, me” mentality. And isn’t it the “men” behind the scenes in the party room who control things? The entire political system needs serious and drastic overhaul. Kick out the thieves and the deceitful, whatever their gender, and without the benefits they think they are entitled to and start anew. Go for it Pauline.

      Probably not until Pauline & One Nation gets more of her party in & lots of power….we have a bunch of gutless pollies running the country. Only Pauline & very few others ever speak out …. they are all in there certainly NOT to help or benefit Australians….they don’t give two hoots about Aussies who are the ones that pay their tax AND their wages …. we are not all a bunch of idiots like the think we are, but we certainly need more people turning against the major parties or these stupid decisions will not ever stop ! The more mozzies that they let in power & into the country the harder it’s going to be to stop….look at what is happening overseas…..the frustrating thing is they can say & do whatever they like ….we are expected or bow & scrape to them then if we do or say anything against them & their ideologist we are the racists the bad guy & as happened in England & here, in Australia end up in jail ! Talk about double standards….they are NOT compatible with western society & the last thing we need is our money paying for them to come here to study at uni when Aussies can end up with debts of over $100,000 …..but they think that’s ok ! NO !! subsidise Australian students with that money NOT Africans !!!! Turnbull you disgust me with the stupid decisions you are constantly making for this country ….you are destroying us …. so much treason happening within the government & it needs to stop !
      We need someone like Trump, along with Pauline who have the guts to follow through on the promises they make !

I think i will write to julie bishop, and seeing that she is so accommodating in giving away 320 million dollars for an educational grant to 4,000 overseas pupils, including a uni degree and paying all their ssociated costs … maybe she would consider paying for my grandaughters uni degree in nursing, plus all her associated costs……?

    Dear Pauline,,

    Yes this is a total rort, I am sure , but can’t prove it that whoever organised that will have a fat envelope given under the table.
    NO government in its right mind would do ANYTHING like that , NOT when our own BACKYARD is screaming for financial help in many ways , E.G. Farmers .
    This woma, Either Julia Bishop or whoever has organised this very cleverly needs to be held to account over this.
    I am sure One Nation can do something about this in Parlament?
    I love to see the outcome of this

    I am a registered nurse working for the Shoalhaven Area Health. Last week, I believe, the public hospital had to cancel surgery as the staff were overworked +++ and what happens when staff are tired of shift work, overworked and being pushed…they get sick too! In the are where I specialise we have no space for all of the extra trollies, bins, equipment, lifters, beds etc left in the small area we work. We are in desperate need for a new unit. I cannot believe that this prosperous country is in so much debt to other countries and this spendthrift politician (who is obviously out of touch) is able to give away money like this when there is so many areas of health that this money can go to. I am disgusted! You will get my vote gladly Pauline.

    Recently there has been lots of discussion about a few interrelated issues.
    Chinese students paying for degrees in Australia as a stepping stone to permanent residency including their families. None of them are free from the watchful eye of the CCP.
    Black/African youths running amuck in Victoria terrorizing people including racial slurs. Most recently, a large group partying in a short term listed apartment (in private residential zoned area) acting out against police and vandalizing police cars.
    So are these youths from Africa being given the (equal) opportunity to also apply for permanent residency?? Or will they go home to help their own countries?
    How can this govt policy exclude the needs of the Australian taxpayer/voter?
    Australia simply cannot afford to this. Financially or socially.
    Thanks again Pauline.

    How can

    what is it with the current politicians, all parties included, do they like to big note themselves, buy giving away money for no other reason but to appear as the worlds most generous nation, when we have full employment and do not borrow money to pay the bills, thats when you can become a giveaway nation, get your priorities in order, and how come the public always seems to know nothing about this type of activity, where are those reporters who seem more interested in the royal family, than reporting the the real stories to the public. Pauline my wife and i have decided that from now on you have our votes, so keep up the pressure, and thank you for supporting the pensioners .

    This is a disgrace we continue to spend borrowed money because we do not have our own and the debt grows along with the interest paid in lost revenue.

Pauline thanks for you appreciation and understanding of what we really need.

    Julie Bishop – One World Govt – United Nations puppet. She has already given 100s of millions of Taxpayers money to the Clinton Foundation over the last 10-15 years under the disguise of foreign health aid. The WHO determined a decade ago that the Clinton Foundation was not qualified to administer Health aid programs (e.g. Haiti) but that didn’t stop Bishop from still donating to them.
    The Liberals and Labor and Greens are all puppets of the same criminals.

    We do not govern Australia, others tell Turnbull and co this is what you will do, remember the pairs agreement was signed just after Abbott was knifed by Turnbull and what has happened since has been planned for some time as we could not be the odd man out.
    This is just another way that we get the refuge influx into this country. People what is happening in Victoria with the gangs well get ready for more of it.
    This wont effect most of the polys as they are in safe seats where riots happen and when they do they are very careful in what they say as they don’t want to offend the rioters as the next time it could be in their own back yard.
    I call Julie Bishop Turnbull’s pinup girl as she is all smiling and usually like the rest of the team reads from same usual hymn sheet.
    Well Malcolm continue to be wherever you can for the selfie and the cameras and fill your photo album because that is all you are good for and soon you will be history like the rest of your good for nothing party.

Australian Defense need full audit and reigning in from the bottom up, theory being the grunts know better if educated or given a voice. There is no relevant education in schools. I could go on and on. Cash and Bishop need to cease pretending they care about anyone or anything other than grandstanding and the sound of their own voice, and I cant stand to hear them speak the lies and misinformation, but they are but a symptom.

  30. David A Lawton
    David A Lawton says:

    BUT ….. what or how can us minions do about it.
    FACT: the bulk of the electorate I am sure are slightly pissed off with majority of self serving politicians.
    Regardless of political persuasion the facts are , Turnbull says he knows what is best …… Ah ! the banking Royal Commission that he says we did not need …… shows him sort of wrong, the advice re the Sheep ships they ignored from a shipping company, yet the government did ZILCH.
    We all expect that our leaders who have a mile of consultants would get the big issues sorted.
    BUT they cannot …. they bumble along, are an embarrassment to our society and never seems to sack anyone.
    It gives rise to the sort of frustrated public uprising that says “throw therm out” ….. in some countries it would lead to RIOTS.
    Yet we appear to be so accepting of all this mindless bull- shit.


  31. David A Lawton
    David A Lawton says:

    A point that no one seems to address or be aware of.
    Not my opinion but from the Australian Government archives.
    The nitty gritty is way back in late 1940’s 50s.
    The government became aware of the establishment of a welfare program that European countries had implemented. It was for people who became pensioners after their working life. It was then set up in Australia a similar scheme by the government of the day.
    It deducted a percentage from each wage earners pay packet.
    Work out the numbers as to how much loot would be / should be in the can, however in the late 1970 some smart arse politician decide to raid the cookie jar, took millions of dollars that was not theirs and supposedly put it in to consolidated revenue.
    The electorate apparently knew little of this raid.
    Then in later years the Hawke government feasted on the balance; and yes it has NEVER been repaid.
    The fact is it was never theirs to nick.
    Another example of the way that those in power deny us what is ours.
    Have a look at the world ranking of Australians with respect to pensions.
    Last time I looked as a ranking of developed countries Australia is eleventh in the world.
    Have a gander as to how much we pay in foreign aid and behold, if you ask to see where did it go there is NO accountability.
    It will stun you when you see the arsehole countries that we give our hard earned loot to.
    And the total of the tape is absurd.
    The politicians are incapable of understanding the inequity of this policy, ….. give to others …. yet stuff their fellow countrymen.
    Fact: As a helicopter pilot for many years I was flying security for the PNG Constabulary in Rabaul when dopey Gareth Evans flew in to Rabaul to do his big man thing, his much publicised trip to PNG to deliver I think $33 million dollars for Foreign Aid.
    Were there any conditions as to where the money goes …. you jest ? anyone who has worked in PNG will attest that the rorting of the system by those in power, is so blatant and visible it is laughable.
    That is not only PNG nationals, but also the so called do-gooder expats that are there for the take.
    I must qualify that there are many who sincerely strive to help and support groups of PNG citizens.
    They are in the minority.
    The Australian leaches sadly are a realty, you can see it everywhere, usually pissed by 1000 am at the Yacht cub, Squash Club, Golf club .. YES …. those who prostitute them selves at the expense of those they are supposed to serve, they take their money with all the concessions that are given and yet still deny those in need and to those so entitled of the aid money.
    …………. When are we going to balance the books ….. these arseholes cannot be allowed to keep on conning us.

    • Geoff Schleehauf
      Geoff Schleehauf says:

      I wholeheartedly agree with this and they don’t have to be “working” overseas. There are many here in Australia doing exactly that, particularly those working with Aboriginal and Islander Affairs and obviously those in the know who help the Muslims and Illegal Immigrants to thwart the system in getting maximum Centrelink benefits (sickness benefits and the like). There has to be a business that has sprung up where either accountants, lawyers or other learned people know exactly how to wrought the system, which in turn denies genuine Australians from receiving the assistance they so badly need. THIS SHOULD NOT INCLUDE DRUG ABUSERS OR ALCOHOLICS AS THAT IS SELF INFLICTED. I maybe straying slightly, but with all the schemes and processes that have been unsuccessfully employed to stop drug abuse, NOTHING has worked. It’s time to stop using kid gloves and give those who import or deal with this garbage to be given a death sentence ASAP after being found guilty. There should be no appeals, and no prison sentences. They are nothing but parasites and cost not only lives of victims, pain to the victim’s families but huge amounts of money to try and rehabilitate those caught up in this insidious business. It’s time to let those involved in drug trafficking that Australia means business and that if caught up in dealing/supplying, your are going to be as dead as your victims – but quicker! Australia is seen as a laughing stock by criminals, both home grown or foreign. The Goose that laid the golden egg! I hate being thought of as a GOOSE by rip off merchants.

    This is like the fruit picking as they pay for flights and also accommodation and they get paid more then a Australian. If you have a look they will only hire back packers now and people are losing their homes and a lot more. They say for Australians need jobs well how can you when they give them to overseas people? They get all there tax back when they leave Australia. If only you could see what is going on. I cannot get work now thanks to back packers only. Amazing.

    Shane says:

    This makes me so angry.

    I work 7 days a week sometimes 6 depending on when the bosses say. I work 8 to 12 hour days and I am a loyal worker and always have been.

    I have done fruit picking since I was 5 years old as my parents done it so the children done it too.

    Now these days it’s back packers as they will not hire Australians at most farms. They get in overseas contractors and only hire their own nationality.

    They pay $60 a week for a nice cabin as the government helps them to pay the rest and I live in a old caravan to where I pay a full price. How does that work?

    I would like you to come and see me in Mundubbera as my partner cannot even get work due them only putting Tonga people on and they sit under trees and here I am working so hard as I believe in you get work for what you get.

    I think it’s not Australia anymore and it’s sad.

    Tell your local member;
    On all issues relating to what our government wants to pay out for OTHER countries shall go before the electorate to vote on at ELECTION time.
    (It will be there for all to see).
    Tabulated will be the amounts prescribed for each country and also how will the distribution of that funding be nominated for and how will it be accounted for.
    It is mandatory that a report on the application of those funds be given to the Australian electorate prior to the next election.

    Folks, we must take action to pull our so call ‘servants’ into gear.
    Can you not appreciate the fact that NO POLITICIAN would give a ‘rats’ as to how much of our money is given away.

    Stick it into your local member, other wise sit back have a cuppa and don’t whinge, the fact that these politicians are having a lend of us.

    …. appreciate any comments …. don’t claim to get it all right but concerned for our country and those who work hard and are being SCREWED.

Heaven forbid what they will be portrayed as in the future! Unfortunately with the immigration intake we are loosing not only our identity but also our vote as we the true Australian people who have made Australia a prosperous country will eventually have no say in the 100 mill population they predict. Mr. Turnbull & Mr. Turnbull plan to give the prosperity Australian citizens have built since colonisation and give it to anyone but the Australian people Shame on them Its all a scam and brainwashing of the public into thing they are there for us

      My husband has a rare condition of MND called Kennedy’s disease. He has also been recently diagnosed with prostate cancer and barrets syndrome which is a pre cancerous condition of the oesphagus. He is currently going through biopsy’s ops etc etc.My husband and I were both made redundant at age 60and because of my husbands condition must maintain private health care otherwise his life is on the line. We have worked hard all our lives to possibly have quality in our retirement but unfortunately not so due to circumstances as above but at least for this I would hope for guaranteed health care. Even going privately he has to wait 5 weeks for a biopsy. A life time for us. But to see non citizens being given free health care etc etc etc as with the amount spent overall on schorlarships is obscene at the cost of needy Australian citizens. This not meant to be a sob story but the sad facts of one pensioner couple

    Having watched and listening to Paulines video message, I read all the comments from everyone and came to the conclusion that anyone of us could write a thousand words each and still that would not be enough to describe the madness of julie bishops actions. Yes you may have noticed that I have written her name in lower case because that’s what she deserves. WOULD SHE PLEASE CONFRONT THE PEOPLE OF AUSTRALIA, ESPECIALY THE PEOPLE WHO ELECTED HER AND EXPLAIN IN PLAIN ENGLISH HOW SHE MADE THIS DECISION. THE ONLY WAY FOR FOR US IS TO GET HER OUT OF OFFICE. TO THE VOTERS IN W.A. DON’T VOTE FOR HER. To anyone who reads this thank you . To anyone who reads this and will take action THANKYOU A thousand times over. Jim from W.A.

    Giving money to other countries for education when we need the money here
    just tell you there is something wrong “upstairs” with politicians. At the same
    time criminals from overseas can stay in Australia, what a joke. I can not vote
    for someone who only look after their own pocket and don’t give a sh.. about
    the Australia people. I hope the next election will change the way we are going.

    I give up. We have lost our beloved country. I am glad people are now saying what I have been saying for years. Whitlam started it. Great statesman, rubbish. The labour Libs and greenies should hang their heads in shame. I use my freedom of speech and daily admonish all who are here for the welfare, break our laws and hate us. So I treat them with the contempt they treat us. One day I may get killed as I , when I see them, Africans , Muslims and Indians doing wrong I tell them in no uncertain words. Our police are on the gravy train as well. Frightened and only can pick on the weaker older Australians. They know who the real crims are. Anzac Day is a day that no immigrants have any respect for. Why were they sacrificed by our and the lousy British Government. Also sick of hearing about the the so called immoral Royal Family. They are just useless unworthy scum.

    Hi Pauline
    Thank you for your concern in this situation. It is disgraceful negligence on the part of Julie Bishop and and all concerned who have passed t;his payment. The problem as we see it is only half the story. Julie Bishop has her own agenda, to ingratiate herself with the UN to gain a place on this evil organisation. She has zero concern for the Australian People, and being the evil snake in the grass that she shouldn’t even the position she holds that gives her the checkbook.she is a disgrace to the Australian people. So grateful for people like you Pauline, that has our country and its people at heart. Thank you.

    Joe Attard says:

    I can not believe that these educated politicians are so stupid to to be running our country into the ground. So the only other side of this coin is nothing more than plain old corruption with those at the top being bribed by corporations and the UN wanting to turn Australia into another third world country. Lets no kid ourselves no matter it Liberal or Labor the results are the same form the gas in the ground to our power crisis to this aid money to help outsiders who do absolutely nothing for our country. We have pensioners who can’t afford to eat doe to the cost of living to veterans on the streets and returned soldiers being dis guarded like litter in a bin. When will the people say enough is enough and if the govt won’t listen then it may take civil war against our own govt to rectify it.

    Can’t they get their university education online? Why do they have to come here? Will they decide to take up Residency at the completion of their studies? Do we, as taxpayers, really want our tax contribution spent on foreigners rather than our own Australian kids educations? My son has a huge hex debt as do many young Australians. I believe in putting Australians first, as does Pauline, which is why she gets my vote. Every other political party panders to foreign investment and agendas.

    I don’t care the details,,,, if we are spending money for African students instead of Australian students then I don’t believe in it,,,, Our priorities are WRONG !!!!!! We are not that well off to be sending millions to Africa when we have our own young lagging behind in the education….

    Doug Moss says:

    In reply to one nations view on foreign students getting this outragious payment on educating in Australian universities when we have young Australian trying to get enough to even live on i can assure you that both sides of the political agenda are nothing but outragious liars and do so because they have what they call parliament privilege which allows them to lie and cheat without remorse, whether the check book be in julie bishops hands or the oppositions the same thing would be the same even worse.We have a primeminister who is obsessed with taking selfies of him self whenever he goes to a meeting or function instead of worrying about the economy, man who in my oppinion believes in himself so much that he most possibly drinks his bathwater,when are the people of this lucky country going to wake up and give these two mager parties the shove, this country is going down the drain hole so fast if we as true Australians dont act very soon it will be too late, our children now in some cases are working for foreign companies and foreign bosses and getting worse. Greed and corruption is alive and flowing in this country in all aspects of life and the two mager parties are right in the middle of it all because they are getting bigger and fatter all at the expence of the hard working australian battler .wake up Australia we possibly may never get rid of them but we can build a third party with pribe anb dignity to counter balance the corruption that is rife and well in the two major parties today

    Folks ,
    Hear ye all.
    After the budget put down by this government I would BET my u-know whats that the Turnbull government days are kaputski; ….. they are gone …..sadly the alternative is worse.
    How could any person with a brain have listened to the unbelievable events that were tabled at the banking investigation and still persist in giving the millions to them (banks) and others.

    Is it not an insult to US ?

    Turnbull is hopeless, do not forget “We don’t need a bank enquiry” days later “Oh yes we will”

    He takes us all for mugs.

      Thank you Pauline. We’re not for you, we would never know about these sneaky expenditures of money about which Australians would never have been told. You are doing wonderful work Pauline.
