Read or Condemn Yourself to Death by Ignorance

For those courageous souls brave enough to look and see what is,

who are unwilling to blindly accept

the lies and rules of tyrannical authority.

The simple step of a courageous individual is not to take part in the lie.

One word of truth outweighs the world.

Wednesday 25th November 2020


Hope this finds you fit and well.

A friend is selling her house and going caravaning. With the threat of bail in and the Global Financial Reset she asked for my advice. This is what I said to her.

I would get some cash (20%), silver and gold (20%). I get mine from

I would prepay anything I needed to pay in the next 12 months and stock up on non-perishable foods.

I would next take a guess at what else apart from gold and silver that holds its value and I could purchase that could easily be sold in an emergency and get some of that too.

Crypto currencies are soaring right now but they could be due for a correction so I would tread warily there. Perhaps I am too conservative so do your own research into them.

Here is a sampling of what recently crossed my digital desk.

Qantas Announce No Vax No Fly Overseas
Qantas Vaccination Announcement

Qantas CEO (member of social elite World Economic Forum) makes Australia/Qantas the test case for against no jab no travel. What we allow to happen here today will become the norm across the world, Qantas owned/linked companies e.g. Jet Star, Coles and Kmart next. If you like freedom of choice with regards to medication, and have loved ones overseas and interstate, work now to retain your freedom or start saying your goodbyes now.

Despite your stance on vaccines, let’s all agree that we deserve the right to choose what we put in our bodies, and that our personal freedoms, along with health and politics wont be dictated by corporations (especially over a virus with a 99.97% ’survival’ rate, yes even in Italy and USA, with 90 being the average age of death.

TIME TO FLOOD Qantas with your comments - the time is now. Go onto their FB page, Alan Joyce’s FB page, email Qantas etc etc. Do not wait until this is implemented as it is so much harder to ’undo’ these things.

This below is from a Qantas employee.

I have some intel on the Qantas mandate for vaccinations but I can’t comment as I’ll surely lose my job. Qantas was visited by Jane Hanlon some weeks ago. She is one of the most satanic public servants I know. She’s on the Covid Advisory Board. Basically she gave Qantas an ultimatum, get all employees and passengers in masks and require vaccination certificates for O/S travel and we will allow you to resume international operations. Masks became mandatory for employees within 5 days of her visit, cloth masks are being made and we are told we will need to wear them as a ’uniform item’ for 2 years. Vaccines for employees are going to be part of new work agreement and passenger vaccine Certs to travel by midway through next year. The only way around this is to be very vocal and write into the company expressing your non consent for travel vaccination. I’ve been with this company for over 30 years and I can tell you boycotting them after the fact won’t help. but I have seen many proposed changes fall over when customers wrote in and expressed their concerns. They want customers and they will listen, especially as they are vulnerable right now. But it must be now, not later! Share this widely!

Please message Qantas right now, and every day until they concede, that we are not a communist country and they have no right to make totalitarian policies.

Here is where to post a comment:

Here is the CEO’s email address:

Here is a petition to sign:

And for an example, here is my email to Alan:

Dear Mr Joyce,

Unlike the 87% of people who it is estimated make decisions by feeling not thinking, I read broadly to get a variety of views on topics of my selection. One of those topics is COVID-19.

I would like to make an argument against the policy of requiring a vaccination prior to flying with Qantas.

1. Koch’s four laws determining the verifiable existence of a pathogen have never been satisfied with respect to the existence of SARS-CoV-2. I repeat, using one of the most basic tenets of immunology, that of identifying, isolating, propagating and infecting with a pathogen to prove its existence, the virus has not been proven to exist.

2. The survival rate from alleged COVID-19 infections (99.97%) is very similar to the survival rate from the normal flu (99.99%), so the government response to it is completely and insanely disproportional to the risk of death.

3. Many, not just one, but many protocols exist for the prevention from infection and treatment of COVID-19. These have been used by different groups of doctors, many reporting 100% success rate.

4. Mandated experimental medical treatments (which this rushed vaccine undoubtedly is) are in contravention of the Nuremberg Code

5. The Universal Declaration on Bioethics and Human Rights available at the UNESCO site: requires informed consent to medical procedures. Australia is a signatory to these codes/declarations so mandating an inadequately tested vaccine puts you and your organisation at risk of profound consequences if harm ensues.

6. The Australian Constitution prohibits compulsory medical procedures.

7. The vaccine makers are in no doubt as to the potential for harm as they have lobbied the government to indemnify them from liability for any injury caused to recipients of the vaccine.

8. Apparently A Current Affair conducted a survey on Instagram: Would you get a vaccine if you needed one to fly: and when I last saw it, 81% of people said No. Not very scientific because you don’t know how many of those are flyers and how many would fly Qantas, but I am one of the 81%. I fly and it has been with Qantas for decades.

9. It is improper to require a medical procedure as a prerequisite to a commercial transaction.

10. It is improper and just as discriminatory to select against a person because of their personal choice of medical treatment as it is to discriminate because of gender, race, religion, age, hair or eye colour, toenail length or brand of toothpaste they use.

If the government mandates that your airline insists I need to have a vaccine in order to fly, then I will NOT be flying with it ever again.

Do you personally understand what’s in this vaccine? If not, I suggest you appraise yourself promptly before you formulate company policy or recommendations that could put thousands at risk and will harm many. Do you know how many of the trial participants had an adverse reaction to this vaccine? ALL OF THEM.

I do hope you reverse your decision because NO MEDICAL PROCEDURE SHOULD EVER BE A MATTER OF COERCION OR EXTORTION and that’s exactly what Qantas is doing.I understand the government might be holding a gun to your back on this matter but it is important enough to make a stand and be on the right side of history with this one.

If you have any questions on the above or would like further information please feel free to come back to me.

It’s now Labor’s ’bail-in’

Ask Anthony Albanese: why are you protecting Scott Morrison instead of our bank deposits?

Opposition leader Anthony Albanese is more intent on protecting Prime Minister Scott Morrison’s position on “bail-in” than Australians’ deposits. Why? Call him today to demand he stop protecting Morrison and instead support the Banking Amendment (Deposits) Bill 2020 to explicitly protect Australian bank deposits from any sort of bail-in. Unless he does, this is now Labor’s bail-in—if Labor refuses to oppose the government on important banking policies, they will be held to account.

Call or email Anthony Albanese today! Electorate: (02) 9564 3588 Canberra: (02) 6277 4022

As Citizens Party Research Director Robert Barwick told Digital Finance Analytics’ Martin North on a 23 November Walk the World episode, It’s Deposit Bail-in “D” Day, the Banking Amendment (Deposits) Bill 2020 that Senator Malcolm Roberts introduced in February cuts through the arguments over whether bail-in is possible by making the law explicit that deposits can never be bailed in, to remove all doubt.

The only reason to oppose the bill is if you prefer not to clarify the law to put it beyond doubt. And the only reason to prefer not to clarify the law is if you want to retain the option of being able to bail in deposits in a future banking emergency. Why would Labor want that? Ask them!

Labor’s bail-in

Bail-in is the policy devised by the Bank for International Settlements (BIS)-based Financial Stability Board (FSB) under orders from the G20, which in 2009 charged the FSB with developing a way to resolve future financial crises without the need for taxpayer bailouts of banks. The FSB’s solution was to propose that banks should be “bailed in” instead of bailed out, by confiscating the funds of the banks’ “unsecured creditors”, including depositors. Labor was in government in Australia at the time, and then-Prime Minister Kevin Rudd took credit for persuading the world to adopt a coordinated policy approach through the G20.

Labor was still in government in 2011 when Australia joined the rest of the G20 in endorsing the FSB’s finalised bail-in policy, laid out in its blueprint called Key Attributes of Effective Resolution Regimes, which is explicit that bail-in applies to bank deposits. And Labor was in its final months of government in April 2013—the month after the first bail-in was imposed on depositors in Cyprus—when the FSB noted in a report that “bail-in legislation is in train … in Australia”.

In other words, it was a Labor government that made a commitment to the G20 and FSB to enact bail-in legislation in Australia! They share culpability with the Coalition government. Although Labor have been out of power in the seven years since 2013, the Labor Party has aided and abetted the Coalition government in implementing bail-in powers, and now they are protecting Morrison’s efforts to block Senator Roberts’ bill to clarify the law so bail-in can’t happen.

Albo’s lies

In a 23 November letter to a concerned citizen, Anthony Albanese’s office lied to protect the government.

“The Banking Amendments (Deposits) Bill 2020 has been extensively examined by the Senate Economics Legislation Committee”, Albanese’s letter stated. “Following an extended inquiry, with submissions from many stakeholders, the Committee found that the Bill would not provide any additional protections to Australian deposit holders. As a result, Labor will not be supporting the Bill.”

First, the Senate Economics Legislation Committee did not “extensively” examine the bill. In fact, the Committee did not even hold a public hearing, at which Senators would have been able to question experts who were willing to testify about the risks of bank deposits being bailed in. One of the experts who should have been questioned in a public hearing was none other than the former Policy Director of the Australian Banking Association, Nick Hossack, who is also a former advisor to Liberal doyens John Howard and Alexander Downer. “Senator Roberts has identified uncertainty in the Banking Act 1959 over whether bank deposits can be written off or converted to equity”, Hossack wrote in his submission to the Senate inquiry—specifically contradicting the claims of the government, echoed by Labor, that the law is already certain.

Second, the Albanese letter lied that deposits are already protected by the $250,000 Financial Claims Scheme guarantee and the Roberts’ bill “would not provide any additional protection”.

What a load of rubbish!

When Labor was in government and enacted the FCS guarantee, it hid the fact that both the Council of Financial Regulators, chaired by the Reserve Bank, and the Financial Stability Board had noted that the FCS was useless for protecting 80 per cent of Australian bank deposits—namely the deposits in the Big Four banks—because the $20 billion provision per bank could not hope to cover the hundreds of billions of deposits in each of the Big Four. Labor also legislated that the FCS must first be “activated” upon the failure of a bank, and that the decision to activate is at the discretion of the government. So it is not an active guarantee, and it does not automatically pay out, as per Labor’s design.

So much for Labor’s idea of deposit protection!

But to say that the Roberts bill would not provide additional protection is a bald-faced lie. The Banking Amendment (Deposits) Bill 2020 would insert an explicit provision that deposits can never be bailed in, no way no how. No such explicit protection against the specific policy of bail-in exists right now. By definition, this is “additional protection”; in fact, it is a level of protection seldom seen in legislation—it is iron-clad and watertight, with no possibility of loopholes.

If you want a watertight protection against bail-in for your savings, call Anthony Albanese, the other relevant Labor leaders, and all your Senators this week to demand they support Senator Roberts’ bill on 30 November.

6 days to get Labor to vote to end the ’bail-in’ nightmare

In six days the Senate votes on Senator Malcolm Roberts’ Banking Amendment (Deposits) Bill 2020, which would end the threat that Australian bank deposits could be “bailed in” once and for all. The government wants you to take them at their word that deposits won’t be bailed in, but that’s not good enough—the assurance is worthless unless it is written into the law. Therefore, it’s very important that in the next six days you call all the Senators from your state, your local federal MP, and Labor leader Anthony Albanese, deputy leader Richard Marles, and Shadow Assistant Treasurer Stephen Jones to demand they vote for the Banking Amendment (Deposits) Bill 2020.

Ask the Labor leaders: “Why would you protect Scott Morrison on bail-in, instead of making the law explicit that deposits can never be bailed in?”

My letter:

G'day Mr Albanese,

I am writing to ask you to support the Banking Amendment (Deposits) Bill 2020 so that depositor's funds are not subject to Bail-In. The owners (shareholders) of banks are the ones that stand to profit via dividends when the banks do well and lose their funds if the banks fail.

The depositors enter a contract for a known interest rate return on their money with no further upside when the banks do well so should not be penalised by having their funds confiscated when the banks do not do well or fail. Any other arrangement is iniquitous.

Because the banks lend out far more than they have on deposit, the depositors funds are more than protected by the value of loans on the books of the bank. Depending on the loan to deposit ratio the banks could have 90% of their loans default with no security recoverable and still be able to guarantee depositors' funds, they would just not make as much profit.

So the only justification for allowing bail-in is to protect bank profits. A tawdry and sordid priority compared to securing the savings of ordinary Australians, whom you were elected to represent.

Warmest regards,

Tom Grimshaw

Powerful stories -- to be so short

These twelve short stories are all very good stories and make us think twice about the daily happenings in our lives as we deal with others!!

1. Today, I interviewed my grandmother for part of a research paper I’m working on for my Psychology class. When I asked her to define success in her own words, she said, “Success is when you look back at your life and the memories make you smile.“

2. Today, I asked my mentor - a very successful business man in his 70s what his top 3 tips are for success. He smiled and said, “Read something no one else is reading, think something no one else is thinking, and do something no one else is doing.“

3. Today, after my 72-hour shift at the fire station, a woman ran up to me at the grocery store and gave me a hug. When I tensed up, she realized I didn’t recognize her. She let go with tears of joy in her eyes and the most sincere smile and said, “On 9-11-2001, you carried me out of the World Trade Center.“

4. Today, after I watched my dog get run over by a car, I sat on the side of the road holding him and crying. And, just before he died, he licked the tears off my face.

5. Today at 7AM, I woke up feeling ill, but decided I needed the money, so I went into work. At 3PM I got laid off. On my drive home I got a flat tire. When I went into the trunk for the spare, it was flat too. A man in a BMW pulled over and gave me a ride. We chatted. And, then he offered me a job. I start tomorrow.

6. Today, as my father, three brothers, and two sisters stood around my mother’s hospital bed, my mother uttered her last coherent words before she died. She simply said, “I feel so loved right now. We should have gotten together like this more often.“

7. Today, I kissed my dad on the forehead as he passed away in a small hospital bed. About 5 seconds after he passed, I realized it was the first time I had given him a kiss since I was a little boy.

8. Today, in the cutest voice, my 8-year-old daughter asked me to start recycling. I chuckled and asked,“Why?“ She replied, “So you can help me save the planet.“ I chuckled again and asked “And why do you want to save the planet?“ “Because that’s where I keep all my stuff,“ she said.

9. Today, when I witnessed a 27-year-old breast cancer patient laughing hysterically at her 2-year-old daughter’s antics, I suddenly realized that, I need to stop complaining about my life and start celebrating it again.

10. Today, a boy in a wheelchair saw me desperately struggling on crutches with my broken leg and offered to carry my backpack and books for me. He helped me all the way across campus to my class and as he was leaving he said, “I hope you feel better soon.“

11. Today, I was feeling down because the results of a biopsy came back malignant. When I got home, I opened an e-mail that said “Thinking of you today. If you need me, I’m a phone call away.“ I t was from a high school friend I hadn’t seen in 10 years.

12. Today, I was traveling in Kenya and I met a refugee from Zimbabwe. He said he hadn’t eaten anything in over 3 days and looked extremely skinny and unhealthy. Then my friend offered him the rest of the sandwich he was eating. The first thing the man said was “We can share it.“

The best sermons are lived, not preached.

I am glad I have ’you’ to send these to.

These are worth passing on. I hope you enjoyed them as much as I did!

The Value of Giving
Katharine Hepburn

Every day I trawl Facebook and some other social media sites to find posts worthy of sharing. Very often I find one that stands head and shoulders above the rest. This is one such story.

I love this story from Katharine Hepburn’s childhood; in her own words.

“Once when I was a teenager, my father and I were standing in line to buy tickets for the circus.

Finally, there was only one other family between us and the ticket counter. This family made a big impression on me.

There were eight children, all probably under the age of 12. The way they were dressed, you could tell they didn’t have a lot of money, but their clothes were neat and clean.

The children were well-behaved, all of them standing in line, two-by-two behind their parents, holding hands. They were excitedly jabbering about the clowns, animals, and all the acts they would be seeing that night. By their excitement you could sense they had never been to the circus before. It would be a highlight of their lives.

The father and mother were at the head of the pack standing proud as could be. The mother was holding her husband’s hand, looking up at him as if to say, “You’re my knight in shining armor.” He was smiling and enjoying seeing his family happy.

The ticket lady asked the man how many tickets he wanted? He proudly responded, “I’d like to buy eight children’s tickets and two adult tickets, so I can take my family to the circus.“ The ticket lady stated the price.

The man’s wife let go of his hand, her head dropped, the man’s lip began to quiver. Then he leaned a little closer and asked, “How much did you say?” The ticket lady again stated the price.

The man didn’t have enough money. How was he supposed to turn and tell his eight kids that he didn’t have enough money to take them to the circus?

Seeing what was going on, my dad reached into his pocket, pulled out a $20 bill, and then dropped it on the ground. (We were not wealthy in any sense of the word!) My father bent down, picked up the $20 bill, tapped the man on the shoulder and said, “Excuse me, sir, this fell out of your pocket.“

The man understood what was going on. He wasn’t begging for a handout but certainly appreciated the help in a desperate, heartbreaking and embarrassing situation.

He looked straight into my dad’s eyes, took my dad’s hand in both of his, squeezed tightly onto the $20 bill, and with his lip quivering and a tear streaming down his cheek, he replied; “Thank you, thank you, sir. This really means a lot to me and my family.“

My father and I went back to our car and drove home. The $20 that my dad gave away is what we were going to buy our own tickets with.

Although we didn’t get to see the circus that night, we both felt a joy inside us that was far greater than seeing the circus could ever provide.

That day I learnt the value to Give.

The Giver is bigger than the Receiver. If you want to be large, larger than life, learn to Give. Love has nothing to do with what you are expecting to get - only with what you are expecting to give - which is everything.

The importance of giving, blessing others can never be over emphasized because there’s always joy in giving. Learn to make someone happy by acts of giving.” - Katharine Hepburn

A Very Sane Letter From Cops For COVID Truth

Conspiracy theory you say? Well please read what some cops in NSW are saying about COVID-19 restrictions and why they reject them. A longish read but finally we’re hearing what many cops are really thinking.

October 26, 2020
To: Michael Fuller
Police Commissioner of New South Wales

RE: Open Letter Concerning the Police Enforcement of ongoing COVID-19 restrictions

We are writing to you to raise concerns we have about the use of the police to enforce the ongoing restrictions placed upon our citizens relating to COVID-19, which has seriously eroded community trust in our great police force.

Since the Attorney General Declared a State of Emergency for the novel coronavirus, our governments have acted upon certain powers to impose restrictions on its citizens, using the police to enforce their rules.

Due to the novel nature of the SARS-CoV-2 virus, most people concurred that certain restrictions should be followed, until more was learnt about the virus.

With the initial modelling from the Imperial College in the UK [1] and the Peter Doherty Institute here in Australia, indicating a catastrophic number of cases that would severely burden our hospital system and could result in up to 150,000 Australian deaths [2], it is easy to comprehend why our governments would respond as they did and why the vast population would comply.

With these frightening projections it became evident that we needed to find a way to quickly diagnose the disease. Yet the Centre for Disease Control in the US states that “no quantified virus isolates of the 2019-nCoV are currently available”. [3] So even without the virus being isolated, the RT PCR test was picked to become the gold standard for testing.

We note that the modelling was later found to have serious calculation errors, such that experts who later reviewed it have said “no serious scientist gives (it) any validity”. [4, 5] And now the RT PCR test has been proven to be unreliable at best, with the inventor stating it should “never be used to diagnose infectious disease”, because it cannot tell if what it detected is alive or dead. [6, 7, 8] This test is still being relied upon to make critical decisions in the interest of public health and safety.

In the same way we cannot use an inaccurate speed detection device to proctor a civilian’s speed, the same must be demanded of a faulty RT PCR test and as such, police should not in any way mandate testing for covid-19, or rely on any outcome of the results.

Now that we have almost 12 months of statistical data that can be relied upon, in place of flawed computer modelling, these statistics show a reality that is far from the modelling projections, which were relied upon by National Cabinet in their response.

For example, we now know that around 45% of people who contract the virus are asymptomatic [9] and asymptomatic transmission is between 0-2.2% [10]. We also know that 80% of people who contract the virus will only have mild symptoms [11] and it is overwhelmingly the elderly and immunocompromised who are at risk of severe symptoms that could result in death. [12]

At the time of writing, the world-wide survival rate for covid-19 is 97.3%. [13] The ordinary flu is 99.9%. [14]

Furthermore, statistics clearly show that while the confirmed cases may be on the rise, the percentage of deaths is plummeting.

Here are some statistics which reflect this reality: –

Sweden and Taiwan did not enforce lockdown on its citizens like much of the world did. Although Sweden failed to take better precautions to protect the elderly in the early stages, their death rate is comparable, and Taiwan’s is outstanding: –

The statistics show there is a high infection rate across the globe, but very low deaths; regardless of whether there was forced lockdowns or not. What we can derive from analysis of this is that these two distinctly different ways have resulted in much the same outcome.

We note from the recent Federal budget, huge debt and unemployment, is that our lockdowns have created a series of problems that now seem to outweigh the threat this virus poses. In our line of work, we know that the socioeconomical problems created here will transpire into a greater threat down the track, as people struggle to deal with the collateral damage this is causing.

We have been told that the advice from the World Health Organization is a key aspect to the National Cabinet response, yet Dr David Nabarro of the WHO recently stated “We in the World Health Organization do not advocate lockdowns as the primary means of control of this virus,” [15]

So in spite of the facts, as they stand now, it would appear that the National Cabinet has been lagging in its capacity to adapt to the reality of the situation and this is causing them to fail in their duty to respond in proportion to the risk. The risk being overwhelmingly with the elderly and immunocompromised. [16, 17, 18]

What is even more concerning is the prohibition on prescribing hydroxychloroquine for COVID-19 [19], when over 121 peer reviewed scientific studies have shown it to be effective in treating and preventing the disease [20, 21, 22]. Instead, the federal government has done a vaccine deal with AstraZeneca [23] and Australians told we cannot expect to go back to normal until a vaccine arrives.

AstraZeneca has been found guilty of offences relating to off-label or unapproved promotion of medical products, making false claims, kickbacks and bribery, consumer protection violation, healthcare offences, government-contracting violations and more. Since 2000 they have been fined over US$1.1billion dollars for these offences and violations. [24] Still, they have been granted protection from future product liability claims relating to its COVID-19 vaccine [25].

Alarmingly, Prime Minister Scott Morrison stated they will make the vaccine “as mandatory as you can possibly make it” [26], in spite of the criminal record of its producer, their exemption from liability claims, the fact we already have at least two approved and extremely safe medications in Ivermectin [27] and hydroxychloroquine; shown to be effective treatments and the reality that the virus does not pose a serious threat to the healthy. It seems these decisions appear to be corporate interests, not in the best interests of public health and wellbeing as is claimed.

All this indicates that the ongoing restrictions on the healthy population is a disproportionate response, yet the police are still expected to continue to enforce these measures and at risk of being forced to vaccinate against a disease that is showing not to be virulent, with a vaccine that has had no long-term safety studies and then forcing it upon the population. The evidence would suggest resources are better directed to protect the vulnerable.

We are concerned with the legitimacy of the actions we are being told to take against the citizens of Australia. States and territories cannot rise above the commonwealth constitution as well as international treaties we are signatories to, yet this is occurring.

Under the state of emergency, the emergency requirements are qualified and restricted by the significant fact that emergency requirements and directions cannot request an individual to be isolated, detained, tested, vaccinated, medically treated or bodily searched in the absence of a biosecurity control order issued to the individual.

These measures are referred to as biosecurity measures and are captured under Subdivision B of Division 3 of Part 3 of Chapter 2 of the Biosecurity Act 2015. [28] (Emergency and public health powers, at the States and Territories, do not provide a carte blanche to breach an individual’s human rights by isolating them, or detaining them or testing them without the proper required notifications and risk assessments first).

There is an inter-governmental agreement [29] which places the Commonwealth in the lead as well as the Australian Health Sector Emergency Response Plan [30]. This ensures that the States and Territories act to compliment the Federal Legislative Framework.

Article 7 of the international convenient of civil and political rights states “no-one shall be subjected to torture or to cruel inhuman, or degrading treatment or punishment, in particular, no-one shall be subjected without his free consent to medical or scientific experimentation.” [31]

Article 27 of the Vienna convention on the law of treatise “A party may not invoke the provision of its internal law as justification of its failure to perform a treaty.” [32]

Article 7 of the Australian human rights commission Act 1986 states “no-one should be subjected to torture or to cruel inhuman or degrading treatment or punishment, in particular, no-one shall be subject without his free consent to medical or scientific experimentation. [33]

Section 109 of the commonwealth of Australia constitution states “when a law of a state is inconsistent with a law of the commonwealth, the latter shall prevail, and the former shall to the extent of the inconsistency being valid.” [34]

With federal and international legislation breaches, it will be taken that we are complicit and consensual in their undertaking on the people of Australia, potentially rendering us criminally liable under the Crimes Act 1914 [35], as well as the Criminal Code Act 1995 [36].

Many members of the force are fed up with the approach to enforce oppressive rules placed upon the population in the name of COVID-19 and the looming mandatory vaccinations. We feel a real calling to do our part to stop this oppression, so we are writing to you to raise the following issues:
• Police Force employees have ’choice’ as to whether or not to receive vaccines;
• The Police believe that all members of the community also have choice around receiving vaccines;
• Police do not participate in any way in the forcing of vaccines upon the population;
• That the Police Association start preparing to defend Police employees who choose to not be vaccinated
• To raise the alarm that there is a global dictatorship occurring and the Police Force is being used as a tool to push these global and corporate agendas upon the population; and
• To warn the Police Force not to simply acquiesce to these requests, rules and laws and to act in the best interest of its population, not tyranny of government.

Recently letters have been written to our leaders from the legal fraternity, including high profile Judges and QC’s [37], The Australian Institute for Progress penned by 30 public intellectuals including 15 professors of relevant disciplines, one of whom is an advisor on health and well-being economics to the UK government [38], Advocate Me’s open letter to all leaders seeking to review disproportionate response to SAR-CoV-2 [39], as well as hundreds of doctors from the medical fraternity [40]. Despite the government continually parroting that they are following the advice of ’the experts’, all these requests have been ignored and the police used as the enforcers of these senseless rules.

We ask that you consider the information provided herein and the NSW Police Force statement of values: –

Each member of the Police Force is to Act in a manner which:
• Places integrity above all;
• Upholds the rule of law;
• Preserves the rights and freedoms of individuals;
• Seeks to improve the quality of life by community involvement in policing;
• Strives for citizen and police personal satisfaction;
• Capitalises on the wealth of human resources;
• Makes efficient and economical use of public resources; and
• Ensures that authority is exercised responsibly.

Many of us believe that we are removing our own rights and freedoms by enforcing these rules upon the community, including our family and friends. And the community are confounded by the intensified police enforcement around peaceful freedom protests and how inconsistent this was when compared with the Black Lives Matter protests. This contradiction is further destroying public confidence.

We are reaching out to all our fellow police officers across the country, to write a similar letter to their respective police commissioners, or sign our form at to show your support for this stance, which we have called Cops for Covid Truth.

With trust in our police force now seriously eroded, we ask you to consider now challenging the necessity of the ongoing restrictions to restore community trust, by being an integral part of returning our State and Country back to normality.

De-banking a weapon in the war on cash

Westpac has reportedly “de-banked”—cut off from banking services—hundreds of business clients in recent weeks. Westpac’s excuse is it is going out of its way to be squeaky clean following its record $1.3 billion fine for its breaches of anti-money laundering/counter-terrorism financing (AML-CTF) laws revealed in late 2019. The businesses targeted by Westpac are involved in the non-bank/cash economy, including gold and silver bullion dealers, Bitcoin traders, and cash remittance (international transfer) companies. However, unlike Westpac, these businesses are fully compliant with AML-CTF requirements—Westpac and the other major banks are targeting them as part of their war on cash to destroy competition to the banking system and force everyone to transact electronically through the banks.

Channel 7 News reported on 19 June that the banks are boasting of using the COVID-19 pandemic to ram through their pre-existing cashless economy agenda. According to the banks, they achieved in just 10 weeks a goal of reducing cash use they thought would take five years! The Big Four banks closed 170 branches during the national lockdown months, Channel 7 reported, some of which aren’t expected to reopen. The banks are on track to reduce the number of ATMs from 28,000 nationwide to just 15,000.

The Morrison government tried to assist this goal through its bill to ban cash transactions above $10,000; however, following a massive public backlash it has gone quiet on the law. The ATM Industry Association (ATMIA) has launched a petition to protect cash use in the economy by mandating that businesses must accept cash as a form of payment for transactions below $10,000 (above that it’s up to the business). In a position paper, the ATMIA stated:

“Some retailers have gone cashless, which denies members of the public the freedom to choose how they wish to pay for goods and services. Cash, as public money, is guaranteed as legal tender and yet cannot be used at these cashless retail outlets. In addition to being public money, cash is a back-up when systems fail or malfunction. With the recent [attempted] introduction of a $10,000 limit on cash transactions in Australia, it is essential to secure the role of cash as a payment option for transactions below this amount. The ATM Industry Association proposes a mandate for cash as a payment option for in-person transactions below $10,000.” (Sign the petition, “Save cash—our right to access and use cash must be protected by law” on

While the banks boasted of being able to fast-track cash reduction goals, in the same period the Australian public voted with their feet and demanded record quantities of cash. The Australian on 15 October reported that between mid-March and the end of June the Reserve Bank issued $7.7 billion in high-value banknotes to the private banks to meet a surge in demand by the public. This year cash in circulation increased by 12.6 per cent compared with an average of 5 per cent in recent years. Due to concerns about the banks and the financial system and policies such as the “bail-in” of bank deposits to prop up failing banks, Australians withdrew cash in enormous quantities either to hoard, or to put in alternatives to the banks, including gold and silver bullion, and Bitcoin.

On 14 October, Paul Thomas of Commander Security Services received a letter from Westpac dated 2 October giving him effectively 12 days’ notice that Westpac was closing his accounts. Commander Security is a cash-in-transit business based in Sydney (a small competitor to Armaguard) that provides cash to ATMs and remittance companies, which is why Westpac is targeting the business. However, unlike Westpac and the other big banks, Paul Thomas’s clients are fully compliant with AUSTRAC, the regulator that enforces AML-CTF laws. Westpac didn’t give a reason for closing the accounts—a Westpac contact said the decision was made by a “faceless division” which doesn’t deal directly with customers—but another Westpac source confirmed the bank’s excuse is a determination to be squeaky clean following its record AUSTRAC fine. Yet this is clearly a smokescreen for knocking out businesses that compete with the banks.

Michael Kukulka of the Melbourne Gold Company has had the same experience, but from all the banks. His business was first de-banked by Westpac, then by CBA, and then NAB. Effectively none of the major banks will bank with him, and neither will most smaller ones. The banks were ruthless: not only did they close his business accounts, they also closed the personal accounts of all staff and family members connected to the business. Cut off from almost all banking services, the Melbourne Gold Company was forced to deal almost entirely in cash, which had to be stored onsite in company safes. This proved to be too much temptation for one employee, who in April conspired with a friend to rob the business of $3.9 million—the third biggest heist in the history of Victoria!

On 27 October One Nation Senator Malcolm Roberts questioned banking regulator APRA on “bail-in” and de-banking, and the cases of both Paul Thomas and Michael Kukulka, pointing out that they are in areas of the economy that are in competition with the banking system. “APRA appears to be turning a blind eye to banks de-banking their rivals—can you explain that?” Senator Roberts asked. APRA chairman Wayne Byres tried to deflect from Roberts’ questions by saying consumer protection isn’t APRA’s responsibility, but he agreed to look into their cases.

The major banks in Australia enjoy an implicit government guarantee—they are too big to fail. That must come with conditions, such as not being allowed to de-bank customers unless they have committed crimes. Otherwise, a permanent solution to de-banking is a public bank, such as a Post Office bank, owned by the government, which would be required to provide banking services to everybody. The private banks have repeatedly failed Australians—it’s time for the public bank solution.

Fight bail-in: We have an opportunity on 30 November to force Parliament to pass Senator Malcolm Roberts’s bill to protect deposits in all banks from bail-in.

Australia and Australians
Straya From The Air

The following was written by the late Douglas Adams of “Hitchhiker’s Guide to the Galaxy” fame.

“Australia is a very confusing place, taking up a large amount of the bottom half of the planet. It is recognisable from orbit because of many unusual features, including what at first looks like an enormous bite taken out of its southern edge; a wall of sheer cliffs which plunge into the girting sea.

Geologists assure us that this is simply an accident of geomorphology, but they still call it the “Great Australian Bight”, proving that not only are they covering up a more frightening theory but they can’t spell either.

The first of the confusing things about Australia is the status of the place. Where other landmasses and sovereign lands are classified as continent, island or country, Australia is considered all three.

Typically, it is unique in this.

The second confusing thing about Australia is the animals. They can be divided into three categories: Poisonous, Odd, and Sheep. It is true that of the 10 most poisonous arachnids on the planet, Australia has 9 of them. Actually, it would be more accurate to say that of the 9 most poisonous arachnids, Australia has all of them.

Any visitors should be careful to check inside boots (before putting them on), under toilet seats (before sitting down) and generally everywhere else.

A stick is very useful for this task.

The last confusing thing about Australia is the inhabitants.

A short history: Sometime around 40,000 years ago some people arrived in boats from the north. They ate all the available food, and a lot of them died.

The ones who survived learned respect for the balance of nature, man’s proper place in the scheme of things, and spiders. They settled in and spent a lot of the intervening time making up strange stories. They also discovered a stick that kept coming back.

Then, around 200 years ago, Europeans arrived in boats from the north.

More accurately, European convicts were sent, with a few deranged people in charge. They tried to plant their crops in autumn (failing to take account of the reversal of the seasons), ate all their food, and a lot of them died.

About then the sheep arrived, and have been treasured ever since. It is interesting to note here that the Europeans always consider themselves vastly superior to any other race they encounter, since they can lie, cheat, steal and litigate (marks of a civilised culture they say), whereas all the Aboriginals can do is happily survive being left in the middle of a vast red-hot desert - equipped with a stick.

Eventually, the new lot of people stopped being Europeans on “extended holiday” and became Australians. The changes are subtle, but deep, caused by the mind-stretching expanses of nothingness and eerie quiet, where a person can sit perfectly still and look deep inside themselves to the core of their essence, their reasons for being, and the necessity of checking inside their boots every morning for fatal surprises. They also picked up the most finely tuned sense of irony in the world, and the Aboriginal gift for making up stories. Be warned.

There is also the matter of the beaches. Australian beaches are simply the nicest and best in the world, although anyone actually venturing into the sea will have to contend with sharks, stinging jellyfish, stonefish (a fish which sits on the bottom of the sea, pretends to be a rock and has venomous barbs sticking out of its back that will kill just from the pain) and surfboarders. However, watching

a beach sunset is worth the risk.

As a result of all this hardship, dirt, thirst and wombats, you would expect Australians to be a sour lot. Instead, they are genial, jolly, cheerful and always willing to share a kind word with a stranger. Faced with insurmountable odds and impossible problems, they smile disarmingly and look for a stick. Major engineering feats have been performed with sheets of corrugated iron, string and mud.

Alone of all the races on earth, they seem to be free from the “Grass is greener on the other side of the fence” syndrome, and roundly proclaim that Australia is, in fact, the other side of that fence. They call the land “Oz” or “Godzone” (a verbal contraction of “God’s Own Country”). The irritating thing about this is... they may be right.


Don’t ever put your hand down a hole for any reason - WHATSOEVER.

The beer is stronger than you think, regardless of how strong you think it is.

Always carry a stick.

Air-conditioning is imperative.

Do not attempt to use Australian slang unless you are a trained linguist and extremely good in a fist fight.

Wear thick socks.

Take good maps. Stopping to ask directions only works when there are people nearby.

If you leave the urban areas, carry several litres of water with you at all times, or you will die. And don’t forget a stick.

Even in the most embellished stories told by Australians, there is always a core of truth that it is unwise to ignore.


They pronounce Melbourne as “Mel-bin”.

They think it makes perfect sense to decorate highways with large fibreglass bananas, prawns and sheep.

They think “Woolloomooloo” is a perfectly reasonable name for a place, that “Wagga Wagga” can be abbreviated to “Wagga”, but “Woy Woy” can’t be called “Woy”.

Their hamburgers will contain beetroot. Apparently it’s a must-have.

How else do you get a stain on your shirt?

They don’t think it’s summer until the steering wheel is too hot to handle.

They believe that all train timetables are works of fiction.

And they all carry a stick...

(Tom: Bright guy, Douglas Admas!)

A worth while lecture.


Until next time,
dream big dreams,
plan out how to achieve them,
be continually executing your plans,
enlist people to your causes,
travel and/or read widely, preferably both,
all the while observing what you observe
rather than thinking what you are told to think,
think well of your fellow man,
take time to help your fellow man,
he sorely needs it and it will help you too,
eat food that is good for your body,
exercise your body,
take time to destress,
and do the important things
that make a difference -
they are rarely the urgent ones!
