In the Land Down Under ‘Senator Pauline Hanson has been pushing for a Royal Commission into the government’s handling of Covid, and demand for one is starting to gain momentum. People always say that the preparation for Royal Commissions costs way too much money, with all the lawyers and whatnot, which is true, so… as an act of selfless public service, here’s a list of questions I’ve drawn up. For free. To save the lawyers the bother.
- Whose decision was it to scrap the previous pandemic plans put into place by Abbott and other earlier governments?
- Whose decision was it for the federal government not to join in the Clive Palmer legal challenge to the closing of state borders?
- Whose decision was it to set up the National Cabinet?
- Why was the National Cabinet given priority over the federal Cabinet?
- Under what legislation was the enforced closure of trade and businesses across the nation permitted?
- Does that legal authority need to be revisited or curtailed to prevent similar outcomes in the event of future pandemics or emergencies?
- What commercial or financial links, if any, exist between any of our health bureaucrats at a state or federal level and any pharmaceutical companies involved in the production of Covid vaccines?
- Are there any conflicts of interest between any of our politicians or health bureaucrats and the vaccine industries?
- Why were certain potential Covid treatments being trialled overseas using medications approved for other uses disallowed by our own health authorities?
- How many times has this ever occurred in the past? If the answer is ‘it has never happened before’, why did it happen this time?
- How much of the JobSeeker and Jobkeeper money was pocketed by big business?
- How much per head did Australian taxpayers spend on stimulus and other such emergency measures? How does this compare with other countries?
- Upon what evidence did our health bureaucrats base their decisions regarding lockdowns and curfews?
- At what point did our health authorities become aware that the vaccines do not necessarily prevent transmission? Did this discovery alter their advice?
- How accurate were the predictive models about deaths in Australia due to Covid?
- What is the federal government’s legal definition of mandatory vaccination? Of coercive vaccination? And of manipulative vaccination?
- How many Covid-registered deaths in Australia were “from” Covid and how many were “with” Covid? Precise numbers please.
These are just some of the questions I would like to see answered. No doubt you’ve got a few of your own you could add.’https://www.spectator.com.au/2022/01/my-questions-for-the-royal-commission-into-covid/?utm_medium=email&utm_campaign=UNFI%20%2020220131%20%20GK&utm_content=UNFI%20%2020220131%20%20GK+CID_a0717a015ab15c42ed9e5933da185fb6&utm_source=CampaignMonitor_Australia&utm_term=pointed%20questions%20for%20a%20hypothetical%20Royal%20Commission%20into%20Covid
In Nazi ‘Western Australian Premier Mark McGowan has announced a new Covid health order that will ban unvaccinated parents from seeing their sick children in hospital. The rule comes into place on January 31.
There is the possibility of obtaining an ‘exemption’, but the chances are tiny leaving most unvaccinated parents without access to their own children. Such exemptions would be assessed on a case-by-case basis, according to a government spokesperson.
McGowan has hinted that these excessive restrictions on unvaccinated people could remain in place for many years. This comes shortly after the premier indefinitely delayed the re-opening of the Western Australia border (except to international students).
The new measure forms part of McGowan’s self-declared ‘broadest vaccine passport measures’ that locks unvaccinated citizens out of almost every part of life – including the public spaces which their taxes pay for.
McGowan proudly announced that he would make life ‘very hard’ for the unvaccinated.
“They [the unvaccinated] won’t be able to go to the football, they won’t be able to work in a whole range of industries. They won’t be able to go to concerts, restaurants, bars, cafes, pubs, fitness centres, gyms – all those things will be restricted. Life is about to get very difficult for you… it’s a big encouragement to go and get yourself vaccinated,” said the premier.
Most reasonable people would call that a threat, not encouragement.
Hospitals are deemed a ‘high risk’ location covered under the premier’s general health order that forbids unvaccinated people entry to a wide range of locations.
“Entry into a hospital or RACF by unvaccinated individuals (in those jurisdictions) is prohibited unless an exemption is in place or permitted under compassionate grounds, such as visiting a family member during the terminal phase of their life. In situations where visitation is permitted by unvaccinated individuals, additional risk mitigation precautions are required to be met by the individual,” said Dr Andy Robertson.
Given the data coming out of New South Wales and Victoria – not to mention the rest of the world including 100% vaccinated Israel – it can be stated categorically that being fully vaccinated and boosted against Covid does not stop the spread of Omicron while banning unvaccinated people from these locations does not prevent Covid from entering them.’https://www.rebelnews.com/unvaccinated_parents_banned_from_seeing_their_own_sick_kids?utm_campaign=rb_01_28_2022&utm_medium=email&utm_source=therebel
‘Another pro-democracy outlet based in Hong Kong has been shut down following a raid by the police and the arrests of seven former and current employees and board members. Stand News was one of few remaining pro-democracy media outlets, following the shut down of Apple Daily in April.
“Because of the situation, Stand News is ceasing operations immediately,” the organization said in a Facebook post.
The publication’s office was raided by more than 200 police. The police said that they were authorized to “search and seize relevant journalistic materials.”
On Facebook, Stand News added that it would no longer add stories to its website, and that it would be removing all of its social media posts.
“This morning, the police arrested a number of senior and former senior staff of the company, [and] took many people away to assist in the investigation,” the statement reads.
The police seized documents and computers, the statement added. The outlet said that it would be assisting in the investigation.
The seven people arrested were detained on the basis of “conspiracy to publish seditious publications.”
In a statement, Hong Kong’s Chief Secretary for Administration John Lee said: “Anybody who attempts to make use of media work as a tool to pursue their political purpose or other interests [and] contravenes the law, particularly offenses that endanger national security, they are the evil elements that damage press freedom.”
The raid came a day after Stand News’ deputy assignment director Ronson Chan said Hong Kong “will always need journalists” during the annual Hong Kong Journalists Association (HKJA) dinner.
In his speech, Chan referenced the shut down of Apple Daily, saying it had “shaken Hong Kong.
He concluded that Hong Kong would “always need the truth and always need journalists… no matter how difficult the road ahead is, the [HKJA] will not fall down”.
Since Beijing passed the national security law, which applies to Hong Kong, authorities have increasingly cracked down on critics and dissent. The controversial law criminalizes collusion with foreign forces, subversion, and secession. Violators could be punished with life in prison.’https://reclaimthenet.org/pro-democracy-hk-news-outlet-stand-news-is-shut-down-after-staff-are-arrested/
The purge of anything not held by the Left in America and in most if not all of the West has begun. That purge is against not only conservatives of all stripes but I believe conservative Christians especially. The Left hate, literally hate God and His Word, the Bible. Censoring truth is the ultimate aim in dictatorial governments. In this article we read about the censoring by YouTube of Ivermectin, a medicine that works as a treatment for the China virus. YES, ‘THE PURGE HAS COMMENCED Dr Lawrie’s urgent appeal to the British Prime Minister to consider ivermectin against Covid-19 has been censored by youtube. Yesterday I received a call from a representative of FaceBook ‘requesting’ that I remove a post that contained comments (referenced with links) made by Australia’s Professor Tom Borody commenting about Ivermectin as a treatment Covid – otherwise by FaceBook would have ‘restrictions’ placed upon it. I have since removed the post containing Professor Borody’s comments under protest. He have entered a very dark time in human history when scientific debate and freedom of speech is being suppressed. Here’s the link that has now been suppressed https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=pXV42xkk8cMIvermectin poses a threat to the ideology of ‘’we must inject everyone with the vaccine” perhaps that’s why there is such extraordinary suppression of free speech to shut this down.’https://www.facebook.com/CraigKellyMP
This is my first video uploaded to Rumble. It is an interview Ben Fordham had with One Nation’s Mark Latham concerning the Liberal/Nationals push for 100% renewable energy in the next ten years.
I remember way back in the dark ages of the 50’s and 60’s reading and hearing about life behind the Iron Curtain. I had grandparents in California and every other summer we would drive out to see them. That trip was made with stops only for eating, refueling and one night sleeping in a motel. However, those behind the Iron Curtain had to stop at various check points and show papers to officials when they traveled. Today, the China virus has allowed Australian state dictators to do the same as Communist Russia did behind the Iron Curtain. Is this today’s democracy or government caring for your health?
‘Queensland Premier Annastacia Palaszczuk has announced her state will be completely open to all New South Wales residents from December 1, after Chief Health Officer Jeanette Young said she was satisfied with the case numbers in Sydney. Prior to this the Greater Sydney region was not able to enter the Sunshine State. “Dr Young is now satisfied that they have reached the over 28 days, so can I say to New South Wales – we welcome you to Queensland from 1 December,” Ms Palaszczuk said. “We know how tough this has been on families. “I hope this is welcome news. I think it’s great news in the lead-up to Christmas, but once again, that timely reminder for everybody – we need to make sure that we continue to keep up our social distancing.” Ms Palaszczuk also said she will make an announcement regarding Victoria on Wednesday.’https://www.skynews.com.au/details/_6211823294001?utm_medium=email&utm_campaign=Daily%20Sky%20News%20Australia%20%20Newsletter&utm_content=Daily%20Sky%20News%20Australia%20%20Newsletter+CID_2962903b0f77f9579acfd0b736c61571&utm_source=Daily%20newsletter&utm_term=Queensland%20to%20relax%20New%20South%20Wales%20border%20restrictions
The China virus has not only affected the Presidential election via mail-in ballots but allowed Australian state dictators to rule without opposition. ‘For the first time since self-government was granted by the British in the nineteenth century, Australia has become a series of rolling tin-pot dictatorships.
What was truly appalling this year was than not one of the checks and balances we rely on to protect us from any rampant Mussolini class actually worked.
Most of the dictatorships were installed by ministerial subordinate legislation.
Like a tsunami, nothing stopped them. Not disallowance by a second chamber, which exists in all states except Queensland. And even where there is a second chamber, the disallowance power has too often been deleted by a compliant chamber.
Nor the courts where the prime minister does not see a sacred duty to maintain the federation and our open borders, where there have been few other plaintiffs who stay, and which anyway did not show the urgency the High Court did when it once rushed to get rid of John Howard’s attempt to block electoral fraud. Some of the viceroys may have expressed their concerns, but too often the making of subordinate legislation has been taken away from and not reported to the executive councils. And rather than a check and balance, much of the mainstream media has preferred to act as the panic adjunct of the relevant premier relaying endlessly the dictatorial mantra to ‘do the right thing’.
Thus, Australian democracy collapsed before a tsunami of power-crazed politicians and their armies of advisers.
And yet we are one of the half-dozen oldest continuing democracies in the world.
The point is that if anyone doubts Lord Acton’s dictum that power tends to corrupt, an objective analysis of the politicians’ response to the Wuhan virus should settle the matter. Decisions were too often taken for political advantage rather than on medical grounds, often exhibiting blatant inconsistencies.
The decision to impose a lockdown which so seriously damaged the lives, businesses liberties and freedom of hundreds of thousands of law-abiding Australians necessitated great care and attention to the question whether it was justified.
But instead, the politicians revealed an incompetence that was breathtaking, suggesting that attention was concentrated on political considerations rather than on the question of absolute necessity.
In place of the requisite judgement Edmund Burke suggested is the only point in choosing a parliamentary representative, Australia’s political leaders substituted flawed and exaggerated modelling. As mentioned before, and which should never be forgotten, this contained a key error so astronomical and so glaring (the projection of a daily need of 35,000 intensive care units) that the humblest tradesman, farmer or small businessperson would have surely questioned it had they been allowed to lay eyes on it
Neither our leaders noticed it, nor did the bureaucratic supremos privy to the modelling.
They want you to forget this outrage. You shouldn’t.
The result was that what in many ways is a trial dictatorship was imposed, and especially in Victoria, the state appropriately in some embryonic relationship with communist China.
The nation, to a greater or lesser degree, was subject to a brutal and wholly unnecessary lockdown. The number who died from the virus was well over 125 times higher than it should have been had the politicians disobeyed Beijing’s wishes and followed Taiwan, home of world’s best pandemic practice.
To recall the corollary of Acton’s dictum about power, a constitutional system must provide checks and balances against the corruptive nature of power.
This experience has become an evil precedent for the politicians and not only about pandemics. Already there are calls to use the concept of dictatorship to impose the imagined cure to global warming, no doubt another way for the communists to undermine the West which among Western leaders President Trump alone has noticed.
Now in determining what should be the question du jour, how to ensure checks and balances always operate to prevent the abuse of power, it is appropriate to recall that the federation of Australia was achieved not by the politicians alone, but by the direct involvement of the people under the Corowa Plan.
This required the direct election of a convention with its conclusions being put directly to the people for decision by referendum. Our ancestors designed a constitution for a country, put it to the people, changed it, put it again, took it to London and put it through the Westminster parliament. All in four years without air travel and the internet. This is a precedent worth following for the first people’s review of the constitution in over 120 years, particularly of course to reinstall protections against the abuse of power.
To do this, some formal changes to the Constitution should be made consistent with the Corowa Plan. As argued here, we should constitutionalise Alan Jones’ Pub Test, that is, ensure that the common sense with which the rank-and-file are liberally endowed, can always prevail.
There are six points which should be encompassed in this approach:
– either House, or three state Parliaments or the people by a petition of, say, 5 per cent of electors nationally and in a majority of states, shall be able to call an elected convention to sit for a maximum of three years.
– each state and territory shall be entitled to elect a number of unpaid delegates equal to one half the total of their senators and MHRs.
– no candidate shall in campaigning be entitled to claim endorsement or affiliation with a registered political party.
– where possible the convention shall operate through committees and with electronic communication.
– after wide consultation, the convention may put a constitutional referendum or referendums.
– Yes and No cases for all voters will be prepared for each referendum question by the appropriate delegates, with federal funding for reasonable advertising expenses.
This of course will only occur if there is an overwhelming demand from Australians to take back their country. The solution is in our hands.’https://www.spectator.com.au/2020/11/trial-dictatorship/?utm_medium=email&utm_campaign=OZWH%20%2020201107%20%20AL&utm_content=OZWH%20%2020201107%20%20AL+CID_3b76ec7e531d74e43d3c90137e6fe1ab&utm_source=CampaignMonitor_Australia&utm_term=Trial%20dictatorship
