‘UN caused CQ floods’, says Capricornia Rise Up candidate

CAPRICORNIA'S newest federal candidate believes the United Nations contracted a private company to cause the floods in Central Queensland in 2010 and 2011.

Rise Up Australia Party's Paul Lewis yesterday expressed concern his views might not get him elected.

But he believes he has a better chance in Capricornia than in his home-town of the Gold Coast.

Mr Lewis said he told the newly-formed party he would be willing to move to Rockhampton and he liked the area.

"I came to Capricornia because it's a marginal Labor seat," he said.

"I knew this seat would be more winnable."

The self-proclaimed born-again Christian said he had visited friends in the region over the past six years.

During his visits in the past three years he said it was obvious "weather manipulation" technology was being used.

He said aerial tankers bought by a private company from the US defence force were sub-contracted by the UN to spray chemicals on clouds over CQ in 2010, causing high levels of rainfall.

Mr Lewis said Labor was mindlessly following a "global agenda".

He said Capricornia needed a voice in Canberra that was not politically correct and would not bow to the agenda of "global masters". Mr Lewis explained the "global masters" consisted of large, wealthy families across the world who also own Australia's four major banks.

"The general population has been dumbed down to accept the government we've got," he said. "I am a disciple of truth. There is a spirit of deception that covers the whole world."

Mr Lewis said part of the "global agenda" was legalising same-sex marriage.

He said Australia had a soul and would one day be physically annihilated by fire, like the kingdoms of Sodom and Gomorrah in the Old Testament, if same-sex marriage was made legal.

According to the Bible the people of Sodom and Gomorrah suffered God's wrath for their sins, particularly of homosexuality.

Mr Lewis described same-sex marriage as one of the biggest issues facing Capricornia.

He believes gay people can be taught to be heterosexuals again through Jesus Christ and his teachings.

Mr Lewis agrees with most of the teachings of the Christian pastor who created the party, Sri-Lankan born Daniel Nalliah.

The party was launched by British climate change sceptic Lord Christopher Monckton in February.

"When I get into power I will be disbanding the climate change commission," Mr Lewis said.
