Alan Jones has been an outspoken critic of the government’s Covid mandates since the pandemic began. His criticism has been especially sharp in regards to NSW Premier Gladys Berejiklian’s recent treatment of Freedom Day protests and the tough Sydney lockdown.
His commentary came after the country was shocked by the overnight creation of a special police task force whose purpose was to track down protesters. NSW Police used social media to encourage residents to dob each other in to Crime Stoppers.
Alan Jones’ take on the situation differs considerably from his mainstream media counterparts, who have gone so far as to run identical newspaper covers ‘Just get the damn jab!’ to assist vaccination programs.
Clips from Alan Jones’ Sky News nightly show are routinely among the highest digital performers along with other outspoken hosts on Outsiders and The Bolt Report.
Major anti-lockdown protests last Saturday saw thousands of frustrated residents flood the CBD, demanding freedom from government health orders. As there is no protest organiser to take to court, the NSW government has focused on pursuing anyone who breaks Covid health directions. Thousands of tip-offs have been sent in from members of the public.
The decision to use the ADF in a visible role is likely to cause controversy, given there is a great deal of difference between the Army assisting with floods and bushfires compared to policing Australian citizens.
Australians are not accustomed to heavy a police presence on their streets, let alone the use of the army outside their doors. The issue is particularly fragile given the large amount of civil resistance to health orders which have been creating financial havoc in NSW, costing the state $2 billion a week.
In a press conference earlier today, Fuller declined to rule out bringing in the ADF to patrol Sydney streets.
“Nothing is off the table between the conversation between the [NSW] premier and myself. We are not stretched at the moment, but clearly if there was an LGA expansion I would absolutely have the confidence in expanding the Australian Defence Force in NSW. To be clear, they are working with us now in hotel quarantine, they are working in our police operation centre – some forty-thousand shifts in hotel quarantine. If we had to use them, absolutely I would call out,” said Commissioner Mick Fuller.
David Elliott, Minister for Police and Emergency Services, also voiced his support for the announcement.
“As I have said previously, support from the Army will add another line of defence to the NSW Government’s crackdown on Covid-19 compliance. The Army’s unique skills and training have combined many times with those of our police officers to serve the people of NSW in times of crisis, such as the floods of severe bushfires we’ve experienced in recent years.”
Prohibiting political protests, even in a pandemic, remains a big question in Australia. Police failed to stop Black Lives Matter and Metoo protests at other points during the Covid outbreak, but have always shown a heavy-handed response when a protest is held in the name of liberty. The double standard continues to be a matter of contention between Australian citizens.
Early today, Prime Minister Scott Morrison caused his own controversy during a radio interview with 3AW when he laid the ground work for discrimination based upon vaccination status.
“We’d have to have more restrictions on people who are unvaccinated because they’re a danger to themselves and others. If you’re not vaccinated you present a greater health risk to yourself and to others than people who are vaccinated […] and public health decisions will have to be made on that basis,” said Scott Morrison.
“If people are unvaccinated they are more at risk and would have to have more restrictions on people who are unvaccinated because they are a danger to themselves and others.”
Morrison did not elaborate, but hinted that the state premiers were on board with announcing increased restrictions on citizens. He did, however, strongly oppose compulsory vaccination.
This comes despite advice from both the CDC and vaccine producers that Covid vaccines do not stop transmission, but rather lesson serious symptoms in vaccinated individuals. On July 27, the CDC updated its advice to recommend fully vaccinated adults and children continue wearing masks indoors.
It is not the first time a Liberal politician has found themselves in hot water when being interviewed by 3AW’s Neil Mitchell. Victorian Opposition Leader Michael O’Brien endorsed jail for those who refused to cooperate fully with contact tracers during the last Victorian outbreak.
The Prime Minister refused to guarantee that Australia would be open by the end of 2021.
“There is a clear learning here, and that is the approach that I would expect states would follow in the future,” said Scott Morrison.
‘An Australian legislator has proposed vaccine passports for everyone over 18 years as a way of providing a restriction to those who refuse the vaccine. The strict proposal comes as the country handles new waves of infections that are much lower than in other countries.
“While people might still have a choice whether or not to get vaccinated, what they can do in the community will need to be controlled and restricted,” said Frank Pangallo, a Member of Parliament in the Upper House, speaking to Adelaide Now.
The SA-Best Party legislator said vaccination certification should be mandatory in hospitality venues, public places, workplaces, and for travel. He proposed the introduction of “vaxport,” a vaccination certification (vaccine passport) document in order to avoid what he says would be a “health and economic catastrophe” in Australia.
So far, the Australian government, led by Prime Minister Scott Morrison, has not hinted that it would mandate vaccine passports. Speaking to Adelaide Now, the chief public health officer Prof. Nicola Spurrier said the government was considering mandatory vaccination for high-risk professions, not the wider population. The Health Minister Stephen Wade said the government was committed to having the vaccines remain “free and voluntary.”
“I understand people will think this is a rather drastic and draconian step, but this pandemic continues to evolve in ways and waves nobody can predict,” Pangallo added. He continued to argue that regardless of vaccines, “we do not seem to control its spread and those variants that are emerging — not just (the) Delta strain but the deadly Lambda variant from Peru.” Pangallo called on the government to update the vaccination program so that individuals who are not yet eligible to get the virus can get it if they want.
Currently, in Australia, people under the age of 40 are not eligible to get the Pfizer vaccine, but it was recently announced that they could get the AstraZeneca shot with a green light from their doctor. An advisory from the Australian Technical Advisory Group on Immunization (ATAGI) recommends the AstraZeneca jab only for people over the age of 60, recommending Pfizer for those under 60.
“Australia is on the cusp of a health and economic catastrophe which requires strong and decisive leadership to prevent the entire country going into lockdown,” Pangallo said. “Hard times create strong leadership and strong leadership creates good times. This is what’s needed now. The pussyfooting around by Scott Morrison needs to stop.”
‘A social media row has erupted after some Chinese cities issued public notices threatening to restrict millions of citizens who are yet to receive a COVID vaccine from entering public spaces.
A handful of smaller cities in Jiangxi, Shanxi, Zhejiang, Fujian and Hebei provinces announced that if people fail to have their jabs, they are likely to be banned from entering schools, childcare, supermarkets, government buildings, hospitals, hotels, banks, aged care facilities, wet markets and government-owned premises.
These local governments say officials will put a strong emphasis on monitoring non-vaccine recipients, who are required to obtain an exemption letter from a hospital.
Socialist ‘French President Emmanuel Macron has announced a package of measures to help France control a fourth wave of Covid19 cases, including stricter border controls, the extension of the health passport for more everyday activities, and making the vaccine compulsory for all healthcare workers.
Is the Uk now under Sharia? Even if you are not a Christian believer this is scary and will affect you in someway in the future. If the Speaker’s Corner in Hyde Park is truly a place for FREE SPEECHhttps://www.speakerscorner.net/ who is the real criminal in this article? Also take time to view the video at the conclusion of this article.
In the UK the ‘Speakers’ Corner is known as the home of free speech. Yet a brave Christian preacher has once again been arrested there because she was being critical of Islam.
Hatun Tash is a regular feature at Speakers’ Corner. Just last September she was escorted out of Speakers’ Corner by police; again, because she was being critical of Islam. Hatun has been warned that there are Muslims who want to kill her and that it is therefore dangerous for her to attend Speakers’ Corner. But Hatun is not intimidated or cowed. Even though she has been assaulted there before, she continues to preach there every week. She feels called to preach to the Muslims there and she is very effective in her ministry.
Hatun’s style is provocative. Deliberately so. This is how she attracts attention and gets people to listen. In September, the offending item was a copy of the Qur’an with holes drilled through it as a visual aid to point out that there are holes in the narrative around the Qur’an. As I pointed out then, no other book with holes in it would cause any problems or be seen as beyond the bounds of free speech. Only if we are effectively enforcing sharia law would we prohibit display of a Qur’an with holes in it.
Last Sunday she was wearing a T-shirt with a cartoon of Mohammad on it. Cartoons of any other figures would be clearly within the bounds of free speech. Only if we are effectively enforcing sharia law would a cartoon of Muhammad be prohibited. This is the home of free speech after all.
Home of free speech or not, Hatun was arrested, carried into a police van to cheers by the Muslim mob. She was held overnight in a police cell, before being released without charge. You can watch a video of the arrest here.
Capitulation to the mob
In the video, it is clear that there is a group of aggressive Muslims who are threatening Hatun. They are doing so right in front of the police officers. The police response is to arrest Hatun and take her out of the park. But she has committed no offence. After the arrest, a police officer talks to one of the Muslim protagonists who suggests to the officer that he has recognised that wearing that t-shirt was a breach of the peace. The officer denies this and explains (from 2:58):
Officer: She was here, and causing trouble. There’s one of her, and fifty-odd of you. So what we do is we take her from the situation. That’s what we’ve done.
Muslim: Appreciate that man, thanks.
Earlier the same Muslim man had challenged Hatun to go to France and wear her t-shirt.
The police have allowed the mob to dictate what the police should do. Rather than protecting Hatun and controlling the behaviour of the mob, the police remove Hatun and the mob cheers. The mob now knows that if they kick up enough fuss the police will remove Hatun again. The police have as good as said so. If this policy continues then it is clear that the mob have achieved their aim of Speakers’ Corner becoming Sharia Corner.
At the start of that video, a man called Mohammad Hijab tells the police to “go away” and “get out of here.”
Hijab has a large following on YouTube. On the same day he posted a video of himself preaching in Speaker’s Corner criticising world leaders for saying that Israel has a right to defend itself and saying we shouldn’t be shocked if some Muslim “blows himself up in the next couple of weeks.”
“I’m not going to be shocked if I see that. I’m going to expect it. I’m not going on trains. You’re putting your own populations in danger.”
Earlier the same day, Hijab was involved in a pro-Palestinian counter-demonstration against the rally for Israel and for peace. In this video he can clearly be seen being antagonistic. Hijab referred to some Jews as Zionists and threatened to a police officer that he would kill their dogs if he saw them again (from 0:57).
This mob had thrown bottles and eggs at some Jews who took a wrong turning and ended up mixed in with the Islamists.
Hijab then led the Muslim antagonists to Speakers’ Corner. A member of the mob openly said in front of police officers:
“We’ll find some Jews there! We want the Zionists! We want their blood!”
Hijab is seen saying: “We believe that life begins at death. We don’t care about death. We love death!”
Preacher arrested – antagonists go free
These same people were in the mob which then threatened Hatun. The police did not arrest the antagonists – they arrested Hatun who had made no threats and committed no offence.
The police are meant to operate without fear or favour. This is clearly no longer the case. Where there’s a mob, the police don’t dare to step in. The person being threatened is arrested, not the members of the mob. The one who has committed no offence is kept in a cell overnight. The threatening mob get their reward and go free. This is how law and order break down.
YouTube and the other social platforms such as Facebook etc. are headed by Leftist/Marxist/Communist leaning people. If this continues there will be no alternative information put forth for people to read and make proper decisions in life. Freedom always comes at a cost and are we willing to pay that cost for that freedom?
Thankfully there is Rumble which has given people the freedom to put forth alternative views. HERE IS THE VIDEO YOUTUBE REMOVED!!!
Now, Finland is seeking to silence Christians for voicing their beliefs. Yes, ‘A Christian member of the Finnish Parliament is facing six years imprisonment for allegedly committing three crimes, including “hate speech,” for sharing her opinion on marriage and human sexuality on social media, on television and in a pamphlet.
The country’s chief prosecutor has brought three criminal charges against Finnish Member of Parliament and former Minister of the Interior, Päivi Räsänen, according to the Austria-based Christian legal group ADF International.
The politician, who is a member of the Evangelical Lutheran Church of Finland and former chair of the Christian Democrats, has been under police investigation since June 2019 for publicly voicing her opinion on marriage and human sexuality in a 2004 pamphlet, for comments made on a 2018 TV show, and a tweet directed at her church leadership.
Those three platforms mentioned in my title are Leftist/Marxist conservative speech censoring platforms. I personally do not go to or use these three platforms for much of anything other than publishing this blog. However, I must have recently written something that those who run LinkedIn don’t agree with as I am not allowed to publish there now. Oh, well these companies are only puppets of the Leftist/Marxist crowd so if I am banned from them all I will be in pretty good company because according to the head man at Twitter we shouldn’t ‘…expect the @realDonaldTrump account on Twitter to be back in action anytime soon.
“There has been no changes to anything we have shared in the past around the former president’s account,” Twitter CFO Ned Segal said on Yahoo Finance Live.
On Jan. 8 of this year, Twitter famously handed out a permanent suspension of then President Donald Trump’s widely followed account. The decision came in the wake of the uprising on Capitol Hill, which many believe was fueled by Trump’s comments on Twitter.
Segal says it’s important Twitter stays consistent with its policies.
“When you step back and think about our policies, we want to work hard to be consistent, to be transparent so people know exactly what to expect from us. We don’t have an oversight board like that [like Facebook]. Our team is accountable for the decisions that we make. There is no changes to anything we have talked about in the past,” Segal added.

Twitter rival Facebook is on the cusp of deciding what to do with a Trump suspension of its own that was enacted on Jan. 6.
On Wednesday, an independent oversight board at Facebook is expected to announce whether it will uphold the indefinite ban on the former president or reverse it.
These platforms and those who lead them are liars. They do not desire for any other opinion different from their own! So, if you want to continue to read my articles the safest way to do so is to follow this blog. These social platforms have an agenda and it does not include furthering those who are conservative. I even believe WordPress stifles real conservatives in someway. Whatever these companies do they can NEVER completely stop what we conservatives hold dear to our hearts and that is real Freedom!
The major political parties in Australia have gone PC WOKE as well as swallowing all of the climate scam Kool-Aid. However, don’t despair there is a new party for true conservatives, Australia One Party https://australiaoneparty.com/.
The following is one reason why a new conservative party is needed! When you have politicians like the Liberal and Labor Party who needs enemies?
‘A Chinese-owned data storage company will house files for the Australian Defence Force, sparking fears the global superpower could easily access Australia’s military secrets.
The parent company of data firm Global Switch, Aldersgate Investments, sold 49 per cent of its stake to Chinese consortium Elegant Jubilee in 2016.
At the time then-treasurer Scott Morrison said all military documents would be phased out of the storage facility in Ultimo, Sydney, by 2020.
Instead the contract, which was due to expire in October last year, was quietly renewed until September 2025 in a $53.5million deal, federal parliament revealed on Tuesday.
In 2017 Prime Minister Scott Morrison, who was then treasurer, ordered all sensitive data be removed from a storage facility run by Global Switch in Sydney by 2020, reported the Daily Telegraph.
‘They’ve made a decision to get their data out of that data centre and that’s an entirely appropriate decision, and they’ll get that done I understand by 2020,’ he said at the time.
Mr Morrison defended the renewal in parliament this week, saying the facility does not hold the most classified documents and defence was moving ‘less sensitive and unclassified data assets to an alternative data centre’.
However, Queensland MP Bob Katter and independent MP Andrew Wilkie moved a motion to end data storage contracts with foreign-owned companies.
‘What is the point of having a defence system when a military 100 times larger than ours knows where all your defence assets are?’ Mr Katter said in parliament.
Elegant Jubilee bought their $4billion stake in the company in cash, a decision by Aldersgate Investments that caused ire among some UK politicians at the time.
Defence has said they will control the data at the Sydney warehouse until all the files had migrated somewhere else by 2025.
The Australian Taxation Office and the Australian Securities and Investments Commission are progressively moving their files away from the company due to security concerns.
‘Across the many international markets in which we operate, Global Switch partners with governments and leading organisations to house their mission critical IT infrastructure,’ Group Director of Global Switch in the Asia Pacific Damon Reid said in a statement.
