  1. Ask the right person or department and you may get an answer. Surely your staff could find out who’s best to ask.

  2. Allowing comments at last.
    Hooray, about time.
    Thanks for you work senator Roberts, you've got more integrity and courage than the rest of both houses combined.

  3. Have to admit Roberts is going into bat for the Hunter. Don't hear of many other Pollie's doing same.

  4. General Campbell is a little soy boy nothing but a political hack no wonder our military has gone to shit

  5. Ever thought PFAS might be harmless and just another way of driving farmers off the land just like their climate change lies the environmentalist will tell us anything

  6. You must irritate the hell out of those left-right Masons. I can just imagine them plotting when they meet up on Saturday nights at their Temples. It's been a long time since an independent like yourself (nothing but interdependents in the 1901 Constitution) has been in that position without first having sworn a masonic oath of death if secrets revealed, and or be family of other that already had. Hanson's very lucky to have you.

  7. Senator Roberts , they are literary shiting there pants . go you good thing go go . great stuff . Cheers mate . we do Hear YOU .

  8. Oh my…
    Came here to re-paste a (edited) reply I just left with another commenter… And I just realised this is actually Mr Senator Roberts own channel and not a re-post of one of his videos….
    👏🏼👏🏼👏🏼👏🏼👏🏼👏🏼👏🏼 👌🏼
    About time we were able to comment and give context and credibility to what he is saying by showing public support and agreement (if applicable) to what this man is saying. And fighting for.

  9. What is PFAS? My father was stationed at Richmond and died of cancer. Du Pont is a global criminal in Teflon alone which is still being used on fry pans and kitchen ware being sold daily in supermarkets worldwide.
    "Dark Waters" is a 2019 American legal thriller film directed by Todd Haynes and written by Mario Correa and Matthew Michael Carnahan. It is based on the 2016 article "The Lawyer Who Became DuPont's Worst Nightmare" by Nathaniel Rich, published in The New York Times Magazine. Parts of the story were also reported by Mariah Blake, whose 2015 article "Welcome to Beautiful Parkersburg, West Virginia" was a National Magazine Award finalist, and Sharon Lerner, whose series "Bad Chemistry" ran in The Intercept. Robert Bilott, the principal character in the film, also wrote a memoir, Exposure, detailing his 20-year legal battle against DuPont.

    Diplomatic Cable Leak

    In a 2007 cable, the US ambassador to France, Craig Roberts Stapleton, recommended "retaliation" against European "targets" in order to defend Monsanto sales of genetically modified organisms (GMOs) in Europe, where controversy over GMOs is strong. In the cable, the French decision to suspend Monsanto's MON 810 patented seed product line was described as "damaging" and not "science-based". The French government's "apparent recommitment" to the precautionary principle written in the French Constitution was also referred to as "damaging".
    In the cable, Stapleton stated, "Country team Paris recommends that we calibrate a target retaliation list that causes some pain across the EU since this is a collective responsibility, but that also focuses in part on the worst culprits. The list should be measured rather than vicious and must be sustainable over the long term, since we should not expect an early victory."
    A 2007 cable reports a meeting between several agricultural biotechnology companies (Dow Chemical Company, DuPont, Monsanto) where they raise concerns to the French governments stance on agricultural biotechnology. The concerns included the destruction of test fields by activists, whether French police will enforce vandalism laws, whether French farmers will have to be on a public list saying they are growing GMOs, and whether France will follow EU approval guidelines. Also the cable discussed an approval dispute about a genetically modified potato variety from BASF which the French government showed signs of approving, but later ruled against. No United States government representatives were involved.
    A 2009 cable reports the May 13 meeting of US diplomats report with Monsanto's Director for Biotechnology for Spain and Portugal. The representative voices concerns over increased "Anti-biotechnology activists in the EU" and their attempts to build support for a prohibition on cultivation of the MON810 corn variety. The cable concludes with an action request for continued support of "Spain's science-based agricultural biotechnology position" in response to the requests of Monsanto and Spanish Ministry of Environment and Rural and Marine Affairs State Secretary Josep Puxeu."

    Shame Roberts told me personally that he knows very little about Julian Assange. His wife knew more.
    He'd have him home in no time. We need Assange's skills and intellect.

    Should Roberts be PM?
    Or maybe he's best at this type of investigation. At last Hanson found a good one.

  11. `Malcolm Robert's ' your a champion .. Thankyou for caring your patience is second to none mate… It seems to me to be an increasingly drawn out and overwhelmingly frustrating process to acquire simple answers to clear and concise questions … wow ! Obviously hours of valuble time and hard work go into preparing for these inquiries but it seems to be that important valid questions put to so called expert spokespersons are disrespected and increasingly met with answer dodging , handballing and often questioned as to validity or relevance . All this lack of professionalism to avoid any accountability just leads to countless drawn out meetings regurgitating the same points over and over without result … Combining the joke that is question time etc and repeated independent enquiries of nothingness resulting in needing inquiries into inquiries whilst distracting attention away from the implementation of stupid careless and often questionable policies that due to the exeption of any economic common sense are purely designed to enhance the lifestyle of polies when they leave the puppet show to float blissfully into early retirement after completing there 10 year career of no accountability. But no matter what financial and or economic burdens are left behind by the political incompetence polies have the luxury of knowing the taxpayer will forever foot the bill towards not only the new shitfight left behind but the cost of ongoing perks enjoyed by former polies … No wonder the country's going down the shit shoot.. Thankyou again Malcolm for what you do as there is some light in the darkness as you are one of the few genuine fair dinkum patriotic good guys … All I can say is how can we help mate ??
