I am thankful indeed that One Nation does not really attempt to conceal what it actually is, although I am sad to say, too many Aussies aren’t getting it. As the saying might go – the truth is hidden in plain sight. Nonetheless, the latest from Pauline Hanson’s Western Australia One Nation should help us clear away the sleep from our eyes.
In a report today (reproduced at the end of this article) we read:
“One Nation is calling for ASIO to vet Western Australian members of Parliament for links to organisations run by the Chinese Communist Party. The party also wants ASIO to conduct background checks on its own party members born in China.”
One Nation’s mistake is to assume that ASIO is some sort of benign organisation out to help us all keep our country safe. If only that was true! ASIO may indeed check Chinese security threats, but ASIO is a structure set up to preserve by legal and illegal means the system of globalist rule. How ideological of me to say that! How true! Why would One Nation peddle the opposite?
Chinese Tshung Chang a One Nation Candidate
Further, to allow ASIO into one’s records generally goes just one further step in stupidity. In particular however, we note One Nation has “party members born in China”, which raises a few questions: how many? why are they there? how do they explain their ‘loyalties’? do One Nation members ‘accept’ them?
It gets better:
“One Nation state president, Paul Filing, a former federal MP who represented Perth’s northern suburbs, said party membership applications from Western Australians born in China would only be approved after a robust background check.”
We learn that Paul Filing is the Western Australia State President of One Nation.
For those who have forgotten, he was a Liberal Party MP. What ‘road to Damascus’ was he on, when like Saul (Saint Paul) – he saw a new truth? We would say that he was a Liberal yesterday and he is a member of a Liberal Party satellite party today. One Nation accommodates him because there is no real difference of opinion.
We see that the party will take memberships from “Western Australians born in China”… Reasonably, this is in accordance with One Nation’s assimilationist policy, whereby anyone can be an Australian by adopting citizenship and flying a flag? Do One Nation voters and supporters understand that? We would say many do not.
Amazing, it becomes:
“Mr Chang, who is our State Secretary and has Chinese-Malay heritage, will be tasked to ensure each applicant is a bona fide West Australian loyalist with no ties to the Chinese Communist Party,” Mr Filing said.”
The One Nation State secretary is Chinese from Malaysia. Do One Nation members and voters see that the party has now “been swamped by Asians” (well, just a little at this time, till more “bona fide” people get leadership roles)?
I have to ponder – what sort of party is this One Nation?
If nationalist minded voters and would-be activists are reading now, I would give the following if tongue-in-cheek guarantees (as President of Australia First):
- I will not ask ASIO to vet our membership records
- I will not allow Chinese members
- I will not appoint a secretary of ‘Chinese-Malay heritage’ or any Chinese heritage.
If that means our party is in breach of Human Rights legislation, I am happy to sign a statement. Our party is established for certain purposes. It can do nothing but obey its principles.
It seems to me that Australia is already in the preparatory stages of war with China, so why mince words to sound nice?
I consider One Nation to be traitors and collaborators with Chinese imperialism. Ever since Pauline did the business with Gina Rinehart to spruik the sale of Kidman Cattle, the collaborationist trend has grown stronger. Paul Filing has sung it to the world.
One Nation calls for ASIO vetting for MPs amid Chinese influence concerns
By Nathan Hondros, December 30 in 2018, published in WA Today
One Nation is calling for ASIO to vet Western Australian members of Parliament for links to organisations run by the Chinese Communist Party. The party also wants ASIO to conduct background checks on its own party members born in China.
WA Legislative Councillor Charles Smith said alarm bells should be ringing around the country after Labor MP Pierre Yang had failed to declare his links to pro-Beijing organisations.
He also called on the state government to examine the nature of foreign political donations.
“One Nation WA are now proposing the need for ASIO to vet all members of the West Australian Parliament,” he said. “The state and the whole country need to get the bottom of these unhealthy relationships, including political donations connected to foreign governments.”

Mr Smith said One Nation had never accepted foreign political donations and had been the first Australian political party to call for them to be banned.
“Now I am also calling for a lifetime ban on former politicians lobbying for foreign governments,” he said.
Mr Smith said there were “unanswered questions in WA about the lobbying activities that led to the awarding of the railway mobile network contract to Huawei“.
“ASIO vetting will go a long way to stopping those who would seek to influence and compromise our Ministers and will only uphold the integrity and confidence of the Government in the eyes of the public,” he said.
WA politicians, business leaders targeted in Beijing’s ‘political war of influence’
One Nation state president, Paul Filing, a former federal MP who represented Perth’s northern suburbs, said party membership applications from Western Australians born in China would only be approved after a robust background check.
He said the party’s state secretary Tshung Chang would be responsible for vetting applicants.
“Mr Chang, who is our State Secretary and has Chinese-Malay heritage, will be tasked to ensure each applicant is a bona fide West Australian loyalist with no ties to the Chinese Communist Party,” Mr Filing said.
Really? Tshung is married to a Chinese and is fluent in English, Mandarin, Cantonese and Hakka (Taiwanese). He spent nine years running regional businesses out of Hong Kong.
Mr Filing called on all political parties to develop a ‘foreign influence transparency scheme’ to ensure there were no agents of unhealthy influence in WA politics.
