Armed soldiers observed patrolling in Kurrajong, NSW
Kurrajong – NSW
These soldiers patrolling a street have their Steyr rifles at ready it seems without red Blank Firing Attachment’s which means they mean business. The picture was posted on March 20, 2023. Unfortunately with a lot of Twitter postings there is little information attached. We have contacted Army Media for comment.
Meanwhile Brisbane ADF sources advise a host of new commanders has ordered the deployment of armed patrols in cities and towns and to be noticeable among the public in vehicles with mounted Minimi 5.56mm machine guns.
Troops now would be trained in heavier 7.62mm Mag 58 and a special forces training program has started. The military is ramping up.
The public should be ready for many more military movements in the suburbs and towns around Australia. –contributed

Hopefully the brainless ALP, LNP duopoly will not ship these Qld made armoured cars off to Ukraine
Defence has contracted Rheinmetall Defence Australia to deliver and support 211 Boxer 8×8 Combat Reconnaissance Vehicles (CRV) for the Australian Army.
This is a significant Army capability that will enhance the safety, security and protection of Australian troops for the next 30 years. The Boxer CRV will replace the Australian Light Armoured Vehicle, which has seen extensive operational service since its introduction in 1996.
The Boxer CRV will operate in a range of environments, from the littoral environment of our near region, to contested complex urban environments. The high levels of protection, firepower and mobility provided by the vehicle will enable sustained operations, varying from peacekeeping to close combat.
Rheinmetall Defence Australia has delivered the first 25 Boxer CRVs (known as Block I vehicles) to Defence. The Block I vehicles were built and assembled primarily in Germany and underwent final integration and acceptance testing in Australia.
With a deliberate period of transition, the remaining Boxer CRVs (known as Block II vehicles) will be built and assembled in Australia, under a gradual ramp down in Germany and ramp up in Australia. This will enable progressive technology transfer of the manufacturing techniques and assembly line processes to Australia during this period.
The Resident Project Office in Hamburg continues to support the delivery of the capability and will be in operation until December 2023.
Rheinmetall has officially opened its Military Vehicle Centre of Excellence (MILVEHCOE) facility in Redbank, Queensland, and is progressively establishing contracts with its major Australian sub-contractors.
The Australian workforce involved in the construction of the vehicles will be used to support sustainment, progressive development and upgrades to the Boxer CRV. They will also be used to support potential export opportunities.
Some variants of the CRV will be equipped with:
- an Anti-Tank Guided Missile; and
- a Remote Weapon Station – Block I (Kongsberg) and Block II (Electro Optic Systems).
Australian Industry Capability (AIC)
- Rheinmetall Defence Australia has committed to Australian expenditure of $1.685 billion under the Boxer CRV acquisition contract, as outlined in the AIC Plan.
- Rheinmetall Defence Australia has committed to Australian expenditure of $173 million under the initial support contract for the Boxer CRV, as outlined in the AIC Plan.
- Defence has contracted Australian company Universal Motion Simulator to deliver a high fidelity and immersive training solution to support the Boxer CRV driver training. This includes a commitment to Australian expenditure of $22 million, as outlined in the AIC Plan.
- Defence has contracted Australian company Electro Optic Systems to provide Remote Weapon Stations for the Block II vehicles. This includes Australian expenditure of $35 million, as outlined in the AIC Plan.
Rheinmetall Defence Australia has established an online industry portal for LAND 400 Phase 2, to advertise future work and communicate with the Australian industry network.
Wasting $7B on Olympics and $235m on the Voice instead should be spent on defence
By Gil May
The Chinese military have been on high alert war footing for over a year, they spend 293.35 billion U.S. dollars a year on defence, THEY DO NOT DO THAT JUST TO DEFEND CHINA. The make border incursions into India testing their ability to respond, they killed an estimated 120 India soldiers with microwave beams. They have been flying large numbers of planes into Taiwan airspace practice runs, to test their defence and to provoke US and identify where they will respond from, giving them the target to take out before attacking Taiwan. The have surveyed the deep ocean trenches around Australian and other countries where they can safely hide nuclear submarines to attack as they choose.
They have had spies all over Australia for decades and the governments did nothing, they own land near every major facility ready to take them out, they have mapped every bit of Australia, tourists found them in many out of way areas, with short hair, regimented sharp staunch manners from years of military training.
Senior US and NATO Generals, top US House Foreign Affairs officials and UN Secretary General Jens Stoltenberg, have all seriously warned China is about to start a major nuclear war, probably in 2025. The spy balloons and ocean spy-buoys that float just below the surface are just a small part made public, they had their practice run with covid, under that guise they vaccinated their population against the big one they are about to release genetically targeted.
While total stupidity reigns supreme here in Australia, with little preparation, run down defence ability and the ignorance of all it a government too stupid to build our defences as a matter of urgent top priority and bring in conscription military training, if you want to live in a free country be repaired to fight for that right.
They are going to waste $235 million urgently needed for our national defence on a stupid unnecessary Voice referendum that will further divide us making an easier target for the Chinese knowing we have no defence. The spend $7 billion on Olympics that may never be held in three years when China start WW3. This money should be going into defence, conscription and arming the population.
When The Voice people and mixed gender folk, Greens and TEALS march in protest after the Chinese take over, they will only do it once — as the Tibetans learnt, most are too young to remember the brutality to the peaceful Buddhist Tibetans’, monks and civilians raped, tortured, body parts cut off and thousands forced over cliffs.
The ignorance and attitude of those in government are destroying our country, with the threat of war looming. A wise government would cut all grants and public wastage to consolidate funds for defence.
CO2 will not mater in time of war, stop wasting urgently needed defence money — stop the US, when under attack they will have to defend their homeland not ours — wake up to that fact.
We are being handed over to the Chinese invasion, and NO, they will not honour any agreements, why should they, we lost. We hear they refer to our PM as Abbonese, Gaybonese etc — He appears a laughing stock to the old-world morals of Chinese and other people.
They have fully infiltrated all aspects on industry and defence as I wrote to the Government about 35 years and was ignored ago, with detail of how inside photocopiers was a component when opened it had inside a computer that sent everything you copied and your computer files somewhere. These were in offices all over Australia, including government and defence offices. No one want to know about it — Typical eh!
Today Chinese spy ware is in many electronic operated home and business appliances, security cameras, TV, work equipment and vehicles.
As explained the Marxist infiltration into the education department, bureaucracy and other organisations encourage such.
Due to apparent incompetent governments, Chinese own land near most strategic infrastructure, electricity, water, rail, roads, defence establishments, Govt Department, airports and sea port. They have been reported by grey-nomads sighting Chinese neatly dressed, short hair with regimented stance and walk, in many far away out of usual reach places.
This proof today shows what a bunch of incompetent people we have had in parliament, has anything changed?
Clearly there need a very BIG change of political party’s pre-selection system of apparently electing low level mediocrity with big egos and little else of national benefit?
THE CHINESE NATION IS NOW ON A WAR FOOTING
World military leaders and analysts advise China will start a World War within 3 to 5 years if not sooner, China cannot wait until AUKUS is established with Japan wanting membership, and Australia gets armed with nuclear Submarines: And a new powerful President is elected in America. The war has already begun with the Covid attack upon the west killing millions and directing finance away from defence, their national vaccination program contained the antigen to protect Chinese from the next one to be released.
US and Western defense forces have dispersed worldwide (The Australian 11/2), Norwegian intelligence advise the Russian nuclear fleet has left bases for world dispersant. It is China, Russia, North Korea, Iran and Pakistan verse the West, defenseless Australia is lost, in part due to educated stupidity being common, and the media not being honest with the people and keeping hard pressure on governments to build our defense systems and introduce conscription. Editors, media owners and officials will be early purge targets of elimination as stated by the CCP.
I wrote warning of this four years ago. Their intention has been made very clear to the world, and stupid Australia’s love of the holy dollar keeps sending them material to build their military equipment, tanks, and navy to conquer and destroy us.
General Chi Haotian made their intention very clear https://jrnyquist.blog/2019/09/11/the-secret-speech-of-general-chi-haotian He openly states they may need to kill 2 to 300 million Americans (and Australians) to enable Chinese expansion. They want our resources for free and there is nothing we can do about it as we have never developed a satisfactory National defence preferring to parasite the US, they will NOT be here when defending US from nuclear attack.
Understand China now has spies all over Australia and own land near most strategic areas including
Merredin Aerodrome south of Perth they were given a lease by the WA government as perfect spy base and control centre for invading planes, and Darwin Sea Port compliments of the government who refused to restrict ownership.
Too late when Chinese knock on your door — Bang — thanks for the house.
Current world news advise the Chinese nation is on a war footing — Wake up Australia or die.
I said before and I say again, no one knows the awful truth of Port Arthur, they only got the sanitised press version to form and opinion on; thinking people ask why so many glaring errors the gullible would never see, why were we banned from writing a historical treatise and a 30-year military secrecy ban put in place now increased to 70 years, when the military wanted to do a ballistics test in the Broad Arrow café, the government quickly demolished it. But they did disarm Australia just like Hitler disarmed Germany. WHY? (CN has published probably the most complete dissertations of Port Arthur available on this site)
A minimum of intelligence would predicted a future attack, so easy, a rundown military, no conscription, the population disarmed and incompetent governments — the mineral rich resources prize is there for the taking. A nation of stupidity overwhelmed by theoretical baloney, gay rights, and terrified of a few tough words and strong debate, big footballers devastated because they were called a perceived racist word by a kid, if they were called blue, purple or other no offence would have been taken.
If the Chinese drop millions of leaflets with a few strong racist, sexist, discriminatory, misogynist, and CO2 real descriptives — many in the population will be too devastated to be able to defend their homeland.
People often get snarky when you present facts because they do not understand and don’t want too. It interferes with their sport, beer and social life — the real sadness is in so many young people who say they are here for a good time and a short time. The end result of education that failed to teach
Australian 3RAR soldiers training at Townsville to control Australians
The right to peaceful assembly and protest is protected by the Commonwealth Constitution, the Universal Declaration of Human Rights (1948), International Covenant on Civil and Political Rights – Article 12 and Article 21 (Freedom of Movement), Section 83:4 of the Commonwealth Criminal Code Act 1995, and the Summary Offences Act Section 6(5) which states that people cannot be directed to move-on if they are: picketing a place of employment; demonstrating, holding banners or signs or speaking in public.
Throughout 2020 and 2021 in Victoria we witnessed numerous instances of terrorism by elite cops incl: CIRT, SOG, PORT and private UN cops wearing Predator badges, including harassment, violent assaults, kettling, depravation of basic human rights, and the indiscriminate use of pepper spray, battons, tear gas, rubber bullets, bean bag rounds, pepper balls, foam baton rounds, smoke bombs and stringer grenades.
Indeed the IBAC investigation last year found “ongoing misconduct issues and risks with the CIRT” and found that CIRT members “acted inconsistently with the Victorian Charter of Human Rights and Responsibilities”. Now they want to throw kerosine on the fire by bringing in the ADF???
Personnel from the 3rd Battalion, Royal Australian Regiment (3RAR), with the support of the 1st Military Police Battalion (1MP), conducted PPC training at Lavarack Barracks.
The course focused on soldiers’ individual PPC training while ensuring the ready battle group met the qualifications required of the ADF’s contingency operational response element.
Infantry sections integrated closely with military police arrest teams, detainee processing capabilities, and military working dogs to enhance security and crowd dispersion.
Captain Nicholas Crosbie, from 3RAR’s Alpha Company, said PPC was a non-lethal combat technique to maintain control, detain and “protect populations”.
Not ONLY the government have betrayed us, so have the police and military.
OUR ENEMY IS AT HOME. NOT IN A FAR FLUNG COUNTRY.

26 Australian bushmasters burnt to the ground at the Odessa port after being offloaded
General Armageddon has installed order on the battle field. The front line has been strengthened and straightened for all intents and purposes the RF is at war with 18 countries. South Korea recently delivered a load of 155mm shells to RF.
The western fighters pretending to be Ukrainians are running low on munitions. The RF continues to pound Ukro power infrastructure this greatly impacts their ability to produce military armaments. In the meantime, the RF continues to clean house internally exposing those that are working on behalf of foreign parties.
My contacts in the Ukraine are informing me that locals in Odessa and other cities are starting to riot. The railway stations in Ivano-Franko have been heavily damaged. EU supplied military equipment is malfunctioning and breaking down, parts of this gear cannot handle travel over long distance. The RF lancets continue to rain down havoc on the Ukro-NATO forces. The west continues to complain about Iran providing drones to the RF when the west provides the Ukros with almost everything including piles of cash.
The RF has modified its drones to be constructed from plastic and timber it makes it harder to detect them and they are almost silent now. 80% of the Ukraine is now in darkness many are forced to recharge their phones in shopping centers. Finally, the RF is conducting itself professionally.
On December 13th, “the Kiev regime tightened censorship of the information space,” the Ukrainian parliament passed in its final session the “media law,” which bans positive coverage of Russia’s actions and expands the rights of the authorities to regulate the media sphere completely.
The Turks were delivering a shipload of generators / power supply units to Ukraine, unfortunately for the Ukros it hit a Ukro sea-mine. It appears that the Ukros have been given much of Germany’s money I can only wonder what the Germans plan to eat this winter? The price of generators in Odessa has quadrupled.
The temperatures are currently fluctuating between -5C/+5C. the locals are leaving Kiev seeking shelters in Dachas, beyond the city centers, fire wood is hard to come by. The Kiev mayor Klishenko has authorized the felling of trees in the city parks, in a month or so there will be no more trees standing within Kiev.
In the Kharkov region the fighting is essentially on standby the line is being held, most of the bridges along the borders have been blown. The Belarus/RF have some new bridge technology. Two specialized trucks are used, one pulls up and places its payload the other drives up and over the first to place its payload. The placement of bridges has been expedited significantly. The Ukrainians are engaging the skills of the elderly as the young generation lacks any skills to achieve practical results.
The RF has reversed engineered the targeting equipment captured from the west and have applied it to their own equipment, the RF is finding this upgrade very useful and feels that the west should be thanked for their contribution. The Germans announced that 1000 Ukros were killed in their recent attempt to storm RF fortified areas.
These are acts of madness and can only make sense if the orders are being issued by foreigners that are removed from the real fighting. The RF estimates that in the last 2.5 months in the Odessa/Kherson region approximately 100,000 Ukro/NATOs are dead or wounded.
Even though the Polish leader Duda publicly announced he does not want war with Russia the Poles continue to build an army of at least 250,000 souls, Belarus has understood what Poland’s (NATO) nefarious intentions are and have stablised their own counter force, the borders have been fortified by their military ranks reinforced with battle hardened Russians and Chechens. The Belarus is spiritually prepared for the fight NATO’s Poland intends to bring.
Historically 150 years ago Ivan the 3rd defeated Kiev, if memory serves in 1203 the Ukros killed prince Oleg Vesliv, the mother princess Olga was able to acquire her son’s body for burial asking that the Ukrainians each provide a bird as compensation which they did. In return the princess tied oily rags to the birds and setting the rags on fire releasing the birds. As a result, Kiev was decimated with fire. Now in 2022 Kiev is facing round III.
There is ongoing street fighting within the strategically important city Baxmut. This city provides access to the hinterlands beyond, it is surrounded by fortified natural geo-morphological ridges held by the Ukros. The area forms a natural geographical pinch point where many roadways and train lines come together. When the Ukros lose this position their supply lines will be extinguished, that is why Ukros are throwing their elite forces into this city, the city that is fondly become known as the Ukro meat grinder.
From the elevated Baxmut positions the Ukros launch US Himars shells at the peaceful citizens of the Donbass city. The RF expects Baxmut to fall by the New Year other nearby towns and cities are being steadily acquired by the RF forces. The SMO looks like it will cull most Ukrainian males, the Ukrainian female fighting forces now numbers in the 10s of thousands.
Two weeks ago, the RF destroyed 26 Australian bushmasters, they were burnt to the ground at the Odessa port after being offloaded. An additional 6 bushmasters were destroyed while moving as a convoy to the conflict zone. One of our planes was hit by the Ukros the pilot chose to crash the plane into the convoy as opposed to ejecting, either way it would have meant his death.
Approximately a month ago 8 bushmasters were destroyed in the Baxmut region. The Turks allow the ships access through the Bosporus Straight the ships then travel along the Romanian coast line to Odessa here NATO air defenses provide cover for the ships. Once they reach the ports of Odessa, they become sitting ducks.
Poland and Romania have closed their borders to the Ukrainians, no more tourists no more refugees. If a Ukrainian national tries to access Canada they are placed in a camp, without a green card they have no access to anything, no documents and no exit. Things there are really bad for Ukrainians. A reservation has been setup up for the Ukrainians.
The Polish Parliament officially allows Poles to fight in the Ukraine. A draft resolution on amnesty for Poles who have fought illegally in the ranks of the Ukrainian armed forces since 2014 was signed. The authors of the law believe that these so-called Polish mercenaries are fighting for the “peace and security of Poland.” There is no doubt that Poland’s intent is to invade and annex parts Western of Ukraine.
The American Patriot defense system is second rate and the RF expects it will have negligible impact on the final military outcome. This system may provide some protection for one or two regions in western Ukraine. Current air defences in the Ukraine are Soviet which cannot be integrated into the NATO systems. The Patriot system is pricey (1 “battery” of 4-8 units’ costs $700m to $1 billion USD), ammunition and maintenance are expensive, one missile costs between 2 & 4 million USD. Shipping multiple units together and storing them together provides a prized target.
The US mercs referred to as Academia tried to cross the line, they were hit hard at least 80% dead or wounded, the RF estimates that the original force comprised 1000 men. A minimum of 26 corpses will be returned to the US. Recently the Ukros tried to hit stationary RF strategic bombers deep within Russia using drones. There was potential to hit an RF bomber, it was more than possible for one of these bombers to be equipped with a nuclear payload. RF nuclear weaponry is superior to that of the US I feel that if such an incident had materialized then the only response to the Ukros would have been to return a small nuke.
The PMC Wagner Group has initiated a forum, 12 teams from different Russian cities will develop software for UAVs. The centre provides all the necessary computing power and drones to the participants. The intent is to create positioning systems using video recognition and algorithms for finding waypoints by landmarks in the absence of satellite navigation systems and the absence of external control. The idea is to teach the drone to use its cameras to navigate in the event the drone loses its GPS signal it can still orient itself.
The RF has exited the WTO and will no longer work with the central bank, China and the UAE are increasingly using the Yuan to trade hydrocarbons. Uranium (U2) shipments to the US and France have stopped. The RF estimates that the French have about 6 months of U2 fuel remaining. The RF generally exchanges one American per ten RF troops.
All sectors of the front in the LPR have stabilized. The LPR sector and all other sectors of the front in the LPR have stabilized well, the front is advancing in all directions, the enemy is suffering very heavy losses in manpower and equipment.
