Liberal plan to outlaw cash a bigger threat than terrorism

KAP Leader and Federal Member for Kennedy Bob Katter has slammed a Federal Government Bill which will control how much cash people are allowed to spend as being a danger to the Australian freedoms; a danger which he thinks is greater than the danger to our lives through a terrorism event being carried out in Australia; which the bill sells as being able to reduce.

Katter warns banning cash transactions will have a worse effect than terrorism. Liberals sneak bill through the House after it had risen

The Federal Government snuck through and tabled The Currency (Restrictions on the Use of Cash) Bill 2019 on Friday afternoon of the last parliamentary sitting while the House had risen and all Members and their staff were returning home.

The bill carries a punishment of significant fines and jail time of up to two years if a person is caught spending or accepting a cash payment over $10,000. If passed, the bill will come into effect from 1 January 2020.

“The danger here to our freedom is greater than the danger to our lives through terrorism,’’ Mr Katter said.

“Clearly there are a thousand reasons why people like to hide a little bit of wealth; and have access to cash.”

Mr Katter quoted George Orwell in his dystopian novel ‘1984’ saying “Big Brother is watching” and that a person’s right to privacy with some of their wealth is one of the most important rights that Australians have.

“I’m told that for every 10 people in China there is one camera watching. Now whether that’s accurate or not, in most police cases that have caught my interest, I notice that the first thing they go to is the security cameras and people have no idea to what degree they are being watched on a daily basis.”

The Federal Government’s key selling point of the bill is better control of the ‘black economy’; arguing that it will reduce money laundering and the purchasing of weapons on the black market, but Mr Katter warned that an increase in going digital will result in an increase in cyber-hacking and that the bill’s passing will open the flood gates on further restriction of freedoms.

“The Government promotes the bill as a measure to combat funded international and homegrown terrorism yet with the ever-rising digital theft and threat of international cyber hacking I wouldn’t be trusting my bank account or the authorities to protect it, nor should they be controlling it.

“The Government will argue that this is the one and only initiative that they will implement to eliminate the black economy however, once the bill is introduced and passed, they will have the flexibility to dictate many more amendments to the law. It will give the police the power to control your cash over $10,000.

“Once the legislation is in place, they have opened the doors to regulate and change as they see fit.

“The assumption that our cash transactions are due to unsavoury activity allows for the prosecution of the potentially innocent, it has always been innocent until proven guilty?

“I’m sure the Government and policing authorities’ intentions are good but the only people allowed to have guns in our society are the people in uniforms.

“So we have lost the right to protect ourselves and now our right to privacy has been taken away with this bill. Are the Government and authorities going to act responsibly? Yes, most of the time. All the time? No.

“All I see here is the undermining of the great principles of Magna Carta in the rule of law. Through insidious increments, ‘The means that is argued justifies the end’.”

About Editor, cairnsnews

One of the few patriots left who understands the system and how it has been totally subverted under every citizen's nose. If we can help to turn it around we will, otherwise our children will have nothing. Our investigations show there is no 'government' of the people for the people of Australia. The removal of the Crown from Australian Parliaments, followed by the incorporation of Parliaments aided by the Australia Act 1987 has left us with corporate government with policies not laws, that apply only to members of political parties and the public service. There is no law, other than the Common Law. This fact will be borne out in the near future as numerous legal challenges in place now, come to a head soon.

  1. The govt actually has ZERO authority to do this.They can print and set the value of currency but they can’t tell people how to spend it and force people into the banks. This is a total rogue state and illegal government and all the sponsors and signers of the bill MUST be taken into custody by what ever means possible including deadly force. The citizens have all rights to take control of the government closing it down until this is sorted out. Death penalties must be issued.


  2. The Liberal national Coalition Party really needs to get a grip on reality.
    The Liberal National coalition Party need to take a firm hold of on institutions that waste Taxpayer dollars.
    The Australian Governments feed Hundreds of Millions of dollars into the private & public hospital system.
    And expect no account of where these monies are spent.
    And there is no accountability forthcoming from the private & public hospital system whatsoever.
    In October 2017 I was called in to St Vincent’s Hospital to have a Triple Bypass Operation. I was kept in the hospital for 10 days & sent home without a valid explanation.
    It cost $2.000 a day to keep me in hospital FOR NOTHING.
    42.000 A DAY COMES TO A TOTAL OF $20.000
    This money could have paid for pacemaker surgery for a needy Australian.
    This happens over & over again.
    Hard Earned Taxpayer Money FLUSHED DOWN THE TOILET.
    Istill have not had my Bypass Surgery & St Vincent’s have told me that I am now


  3. The Magna Carta was written to protect us from what is about to happen to us .


  4. Puppet criminals – the UN barks and they crawl..
