Sydney, March 24, 2017– Frank J Monte, International Aussie Private Eye newly returned from the USA has decided to run for the Senate in the upcoming 2018 Australian Federal Elections. Monte a long time Aussie Liberal who lived and worked in LA and NYC from the 1990’s and who is a licensed Private Investigator in California will helm the newly created Aussie party with its Centre-Right Wing views. Monte has been involved at the pointy end of Politics as a friend and professional often giving his PI expertise or campaigned for; Sir Robert Askin, Bob Ellicott, Don Chipp, Malcolm Fraser, Nick Greiner, John Dowd, Jack Birnie, John Hewson and in the past ten years, Malcolm Turnbull in the Wentworth Electorate , Monte's home base for the past 60 years. His famous book ‘The Spying Game’ describes his close involvement with Whitlam Gov’t confidante Junie Morosi and his part in the Whitlam melodrama. [The most famous Aussie book rivalling Frank Hardy’s 1950 book of Victorian Police Corruption ‘Power without Glory’] ''I'm no stranger to the machinations and skullduggery of Political Life'' he says. Not content with retirement, he says, ''I'm ready to mix it up with the Federal System and make changes to Aussie trends which I find disturbing and menacing to our way of life.'' He says, ''I don’t believe Aussies are seriously able to find a strong dissenting voice, other that Pauline Hanson who I believe need help in the Senate esp.against the Green. I’m that man. I have my eye on several of the Greens’ seats. They are doomed. As is Global Warming, Muslim Immigration and Gov’t waste by the $Billions.  ''I want to bring back Coal, Gas and Nuclear Reactors ASAP. ‘’Stop the Rorts’’ is my slogan. Stop the Muslims World Domination. I’ll need 4 to 8 years and then I’ll go. I’m too old to be a Cabinet Minister or Leader. I’m past middle age!''                                               AUSTRALIAN CRUSADERS PARTY's Aims are; 1.     Stop Australian Gov't wasted spending and involvement with the Global Warming Fraud which pays Invested Naïve Scientists Millions of our dollars. Mr. Turnbull just sent in November 2016, 167 Federal staff with Senator Bishop to Paris to work on the Paris Global Warming Accord, which days before President Trump announced that the USA would abandon immediately. That trip by our Federal Staff was a waste of our money and a paid Holiday, in PARIS! Cost us over $20 million. Eventual cost of our share of the Paris Accord, AUD $1 Billion! Sen. Bishop gave away $40 million to Myanmar, they're having problems! So are we? And $27 million to Syria? 2.     Stop Australian Gov't spending money to fund Islamic or other Immigrants or any illegal refugees with our welfare. A moratorium date on any new landing of such persons to be implemented. Let's follow Italy's example and put them on boats and drop them off where they came from. Stop being polite/ scared of Malaysia, the Philippines and Indonesia. Stop rise of and deny use of SHARIA LAW! Deny Citizenship or Visas to Bigamists. Re-patriate trouble makers. Regardless of Aussie Citizenship or familial ties. 3.     Institute NEW Visa Guidelines. From inception the Visa holders are not to receive citizenship until they've lived in Australia for a total period of 3 years. Unless they commit a criminal offence, in that case they and their immediate family will be denied citizenship and removed. The family must pressure criminally bent persons from acting out criminally. Re-patriate criminally inclined Foreign Nationals. Implement a Compulsory Australian Picture ID card. 4.     Stop Foreigners rorting the system by tricking gullible Australians into pregnancy or/and marriage, and thus citizenship, they should be sent back regardless of 'Anchor' children, that's the old Mexican Con. That's Visa/Citizenship by fraud. Repatriate Thousands of middle easterners on permanent welfare! Incapable and unwilling to learn English or work. 5.     Stop Australian Gov't proposed and other illicit or unnecessary payments to Indigenous/Aussies. Why are we treating them like invalids and propping them up, let's give them back their pride and get them back to work? They're not pets, we're treating them like that. No more being SORRY! No more discrimination by guilt-ridden money payments. The Brits. may have killed a few Aboriginals, and they killed some Brits, but let's all get over it. It wasn't us.  We're all driving Japanese aren't we? Remember the Kokoda Trail? Changi? Well, if we can forget the Japanese slaughters of whites, the Aboriginals can forget what happened 230 years ago. Let's all be Aussies. No colour. Black, Brown, Yellow or White! 6.     Stop Australian Gov't giving Aboriginal Spokesman, Mick Goody $50- $100+ million to carry out a useless Royal Commission into the treatment of Criminal Aboriginals. We say that he's obviously biased. Stop 'Aboriginals' committing crimes, if they do so, they're 'Australians' doing it. Calling them Indigenous Australians is Discriminatory, aren’t they Australians? Then expect to act and be treated like one! One flag. One Nation! Stop this BS nation building. No more Black Flag! 7.     Christianity and English as 1st language bring back the freedom to practice, into schools and work places, ESP. The Government Service & its illicit Multi Cultural Practices. Also as an important barometer of decency, we demand a new law whereas if you wantonly burn or destroy the Australian Flag or Christian Crosses you must be goaled for a minimum of 3 months, no community service. 8.     Bring back Christmas! Don’t' buy into the Anti Christian’s 'Happy Holiday' BS. Take back the Holy Church! We English Speaking Christians should not be made to observe Ramadan and/or Hanukah! Nor penalized for exhibiting our Holy Images or the Sacred Cross in public view. 9.     There are too many ridiculous welfare rorts, financial aid schemes that benefit people who just will not work but are able to. It's time to grow up, if you cannot make it as an artist or permanent mature aged student,  stop getting Australian Gov't  grants to be a BLUDGER, go get a job or join the Armed Forces. No more hand-outs to people who want to be life-long dreamers or have five babies for welfare! The Army and Royal Navy are waiting for you! Join up. Get fit, get off Drugs and Get a Life! 10.  Locate and remove all undocumented and illegal foreigners, who are here as 'slaves' or in hiding as 'students' or just living happily under the radar. Sent them home. 11.  We are nearly $500 Billion in Debt, from $00 when John Howard left. Mainly Rudd and Gillard's faults. We cannot sustain all these bludgers/ terrorists/ refugees arriving here and getting benefits weeks later, often promoted and protected by their own kind who work behind the scenes in our Government Agencies. Today the Gov't wants to bring out another 150,000- 300,000 refugees soon. Eventually 30 more Million. We say NO!   12.  Abolish the Racially Driven Anti-Discrimination & Human Rights Commissions and section '18c'. No more Political Correctness gone mad! Let's face it this was a Free Speech country. The Politicians seek minority voters by pretending to love their inclusion. They just want them as Obligated Voters. If I call you an offensive name, you'll KNOW not to talk to me. My loss? My Right!   13.   Re-instate Coal & Uranium Mining and Gas Drilling as well as all forestry work, immediately!  Stop the Wind, Solar, Greens' farce about renewable energy. No more Global warming expenditure allowed. Stop listening to leftie fraudsters like Al Gore and Michael Moore, they are actually desperate lefties out to scare you to make a dollar!  Did you know Al Gore was worth $3 million when he left office as Vice President, why is he worth $350 million now? That's money from an S/E Asian group benefitting in $Billions from the Global Warming scare! Plus unscrupulous UN 'Scientists'. 14.  Australian Gov't to stop United Nations funding. Regardless what any Aussie politicians promised. I've lived near and worked with UN officials in NYC. The UN interfered with and mismanaged Africa's wars and millions died in genocides whilst BLUE HELMETTED OBSERVERS watched. They’re a useless lot. They'll never come to our aid. They are, The Problem! Rudd & Turnbull are crying to be UN Secretary General, they’ll both sell out OZ to do it. 15.  Nuclear Energy. What's wrong with clean fast cheap Nuclear energy, are we letting three accidents 30 years ago spoil everything? Our new Submarines would be much cheaper with nuclear propulsion. The Challenger and USSR's Chernobyl 'accidents' were both Political sabotages. 16.  Guns & Firearms. Stop this idiocy of being scared of guns. When did this start? Nana State propaganda. Let's again allow non-criminal and sane Australian Citizens to have the ability to own and have guns especially at home for protection as we all did before 1993. The Pt. Arthur Massacre was an aberration but not our fault, although PM. John Howard pulled a Nazi Style, Law and Order dirty trick to disarm all Law abiding Australians! I doubt any Criminals handed over any weapons.    Frank James Monte, is the often well publicized LA- NYC- Sydney, Ex-Kings Cross Cop, Private Investigator known for his 1979 Irian Jaya expedition for the Skull of Rockefeller, recruiting mercenaries in 1975 for and body-guarding The Sheik of Dubai, The Sultan of Johore as well as providing security to many including; Gregory Peck, Diane Keaton, Jack Nicholson, Frank Sinatra, Neil Diamond, Marlon Brando, Sydney Pollack, Perry Farrell and Aristotle Onassis being employed by many of Forbes 500 clients as well as; Mc Donnell Douglas, The Times of London , Amoco, Westpac, Citicorp, 3M, Mitsubishi, Telecom, Westfield, Motorola, BHP, Cartier, Oracle, Bond Corp., Warner Music, Lend Lease, Bankers Trust and 10,000 more as well as 45+ Insurance companies & 1000’s of Lawyers worldwide.

Later in 2010 in Rome out came a book called, ‘Metastasi’ by GianLuigi Nuzzi a respected Italian Author [ Vatican SPA and ors. ] which repeats the Versace’s mafia hit man, Guiseppe Di Bella’s account of the Versace murder and Assertions agreeing with Monte’s Original utterances. Indeed Di Bella admits money laundering and other illegal acts took place with the Versaces. He is protected & trusted by the Italian Anti-Mafia Commission. Saying; 1. Donatella Versace was and admitted being was a cocaine addict for 30 years and lied in the Australian Federal Court case. 2. That Versace was killed as Monte said by the Mafia after years of money laundering, drug dealing and for his debts. Monte also successfully acted in 2010 in Sydney, in destroying the court case by a young lady, Kristy Fraser-Kirk against David Jones Ltd the super store, for $37 million for Sexual harassment, by his secret often aggressive, tactics.

He is now pursuing a career in TV and Film Production in Los Angeles having just completed a TV Pilot of the show seen at; www.ThePrivateEyeandtheMadam.com. He spent most of late last year chasing after and cornering 5 of Mr. Trump’s 7 detractors who falsely claimed Mr. Trump had known them and harassed them. Monte fought tooth and nail with Gloria Allred the O.J. ambulance chaser feminist Attorney out of Los Angeles who appears next to all pseudo victims to protect them. Monte was on record on CNN as the 1st to publicly claim, that O.J.  Simpson was innocent and 1st on Twitter saying that Mr. Donald Trump would be elected to the Presidency. His publicly available Tweets and private emails reveal this.

New venues and events in the city’s west, north, south and east will be added alongside existing crowd favourites in the fesitval program that runs October 20-29. The SBW team have started discussions with breweries and venues across Sydney to develop events for SBW17, and are encouraging beer fans to talk to their favourite beer venues about getting involved. Any venues interested in participating should contact SBW who have staff on hand to assist with event development. “Sydney Craft Beer Week, as the festival was previously known, did a tremendous job turning Sydney into a global craft beer city under the stewardship of Joel Connolly and with the support of the local beer community” says Dave Phillips, Festival Director. Phillips explains that dropping ‘craft’ from the festival title and expanding the footprint is all about making Sydney Beer Week more inclusive and aligned to where beer is going. “Our vision is to deliver a world class celebration of beer – for consumers, producers, venues and communities. This means continuing the great work done by the previous owners and expanding the festival to reach more of Sydney. We want to provide opportunities for the beer curious as well as those already passionate and knowledgeable across as much of Greater Sydney as we possibly can”. The flagship events of SBW 2017 will include an opening gala tasting event, the Sydney Beer Awards, the Hair of the Dog breakfast and the new Food Truck Corral. A Festival Hub will also be established as homebase with SBW staff on hand to advise visitors on festival events, over a cold beer of course. Festival events will be arranged into five streams – Food, Education, Activities, Technology and Showcase. Liam Pereira, Sydney Beer Week General Manager, has seen a big change in Sydney’s beer community in recent years. “As the beer industry has grown and matured, and peoples’ palates have changed, the conversation is not about craft or mainstream beer – it’s more about what kind of beer people like to drink. We have seen bars across Sydney embrace all styles of beer – you can have a watermelon sour as your mate beside sips on a traditional pale lager and we think this is great.” Sydney Beer Week has put in place a team with a broad range of expertise across the beer, events, hospitality, and tourism industries with the aim of cementing the festival’s presence on Sydney’s event calendar.

In addition to composing and playing music for Stinky Ninja, Vashti Perera is ensuring a focus on educational elements, including research into the ongoing transformation of music in modern times and developing consumable focused outcomes such as teaching guides and lesson plans. “Stinky Ninja offers a very unique package that combines education, technology and entertainment through the lens of comedy and storytelling. The concepts contain many levels of possible engagement making it appealing to diverse audiences in a variety of ways. The Stinky Ninja brand incorporates key areas that I feel most crucial about; education through creativity, connecting social communities and being able to celebrate life’s amusing quirks. Personally, it is a way I can bring my diverse experience in teaching, composing and performing together to create high quality musical productions presented in an educational format that is both fun and innovative”, explained Vashti Perera. “From industry veterans to the youngest of children Stinky Ninja’s animated musical journey is an opportunity for a wide variety of audiences to learn something about music”, observed Adam Sivell, founder of Stinky Ninja. “For children it might be a fun first introduction to different styles, and for the more well-travelled an insight into the history of music, instrumentation, and the connection and evolution of genres. One of the really exciting things about Vashti is that she is able to incorporate layers of hidden complexity. At first glance Stinky appears as a simple cartoon. Then you realize that the music is actually very high quality. As you keep listening you begin to notice that the lyrics are telling a funny classic story, and that each song represents a different musical style. And underpinning all of this is the connection between the musical styles, instrumentation, and the educational elements.” About Vashti Perera Vashti Perera is an Australian Pianist, Composer, Producer and Music Teacher who started her music studies in Classical Piano the age of 7.

Whether it’s watching the latest episode of Peppa Pig or navigating through the back garden jungle discovering new wildlife, iPads can open up a world of exploration, but more often than not, a small chip here or a little crack there means that fun can be cut short. Prolong the play time and keep that shiny new look and feel to your iPad even when little fingers have put it through its paces thanks to tech21’s new iPad case, Evo Play. This comfortable and lightweight case has been designed to offer unbeatable drop protection from up to two metres, and with its iconic design, vibrant colours and handy multi-use handle, this case will remove any glimmer of fear you had in handing over your iPad to your children. This case is constructed almost entirely from tech21’s unique material, FlexShock™ Foam, meaning all sides and surfaces are protected from drops as the material moulds snugly to your iPad. Better still, the case is entirely dishwasher safe, so it’s easy to keep clean, and when it’s on your iPad, its sealed outer shell is abrasion/bite resistant, preventing any bacteria from getting in under the surface. “We’ve designed the all-new Evo Play with kids in mind. We know children love to learn, play and explore, and we recognise iPads are a great way for them to do this. However, they may not love your precious iPad back, so Evo Play is there for you,” comments Jason Roberts, CEO, tech21. “Evo Play is lightweight and comfortable for little hands to hold, yet strong enough to keep your iPad safe from tumbles and drops.” Evo Play is available in pink/purple and blue/green colours from tech21.com, RRP $79.95 for Apple iPad mini, mini 2, mini 3 & mini 4, and RRP $109.95 for Apple iPad Air 2. Much like all of tech21’s products, Evo Play comes with a simple promise: it’s rigorously tested to work harmoniously with your iPad. Like the technology it’s designed to protect, it uses the latest science, ingenious design and unbeatable user-friendliness to make advanced impact protection possible. Tech21 calls it ‘Protection Made Intelligent’. ### For further information, questions, or cases for review, please contact: Jim Barker, tech21/Poem Phone: +61 418 163 770 Email: jim@poemgroup.com.au High-res images: Download here About tech21 Since 2005, tech21 has been developing the most advanced, scientifically proven cases and screen shields for mobile, tablet and laptop devices worldwide.
