Scott Morrison was at the Eagles-Magpies game in Perth Friday night appearing on the big screen at the Optus stadium but was met with a deafening roar by the 54,159-strong crowd booing.
Morrison’s approval rating has been smashed by voters amid a backlash led by rape survivor Brittany Higgins, other sexual abuse survivors and women’s fight for justice.
More fuel on the Morrison fire as an ABC investigation reveals a group of taxpayer-funded aged care homes funnelled $31 million back into the coffers of one of Australia’s largest churches, an ABC investigation has found.
The homes include St Basil’s in Melbourne, where 45 residents died in Australia’s deadliest COVID outbreak.
In the past eight years, St Basil’s paid more than $22 million in rent and fees to the Greek Orthodox Archdiocese while receiving federal government funding.
Cairns News commercial real estate sources said this was double the rental market rate.
A Sydney harbour views apartment purchased by the Greek Orthodox Archdiocese at $6.5 million is part of supporting a lavish lifestyle of of its newly appointed Archbishop Makarios.
At what point of irrefutable blatant, endemic, government corruption can we expect the bean counters in Canberra to reel in irrefutable, indictable theft defined in the Crimes Act our god fearing Prime Minister appears to condone?
To add to his woes, recent polls have shown voters do not approve of an ID Card or vaccine passport being developed by the Prime Minister’s Department.

What has happened to Premier Dan Andrews? After it was dutifully reported by Victoria’s captive media he “fell down the stairs and broke his ribs” at a mansion owned by transport magnate Lindsay Fox, his tweets, other than a photo-shopped picture of him in a hospital bed and a “happy Easter” message have disappeared into the ether.
Being a Labor Premier of a rogue Chinese state has its moments and fighting off a flu virus and overseeing the deaths of more than 800 age care residents across Melbourne occupied most of Dan’s time. When he had a tantalising opportunity to visit Linfox’s luxury home at Portsea, fortuitously the highway-hardened truck driver’s son Andrew too was in lockdown at the seaside.
Opposition MP Louise Staley attacked the Premier during Parliamentary question time in January for hob-nobbing with billionaire Lindsay Fox and cracking $10,000 bottles of wine when one business in Melbourne alone lost $10,000 in one day due to a snap Covid lockdown.
During Question Time, Ms Staley asked flatly how many helicopter flights or other gifts the Premier had received from the Fox family.
Mr Andrews said the only helicopters flights he had taken recently were to bushfire-affected areas.
“I meet with many people about many different issues,” Mr Andrews said.
“I behave appropriately at all times, that is the oath that I swore and if the conspiracy theorists opposite wants to make a claim or allegation, go ahead and do it.”
According to The Age there is no dispute that Andrews is a regular and welcome visitor to the Fox’s den. The most recent occasion The Age is aware of was January 9, two days after Andrews returned to work from a short summer break.
It was a Saturday night and the Premier and his wife, Catherine, made the familiar drive from their Mulgrave home to the Fox’s sprawling cliff-top compound that overlooks Portsea’s Point King Beach.
Seated around the table were Lindsay Fox and his wife, Paula, the Premier and his wife, tech entrepreneur Andrew Bassat and Luke Sayers, a former PricewaterhouseCoopers chief executive.
The Fox family were also in lockdown in Portsea. Andrew Fox, the son of trucking magnate Lindsay, and his family were enjoying isolation at the family’s clifftop compound.
His daughter Bella has shared videos on social media of the family partying on table tops in the midst of a pandemic. Ironically, the Mornington Peninsula, which includes Portsea, has recorded 36 cases of COVID-19 whereas the city of Melbourne has 32.
Dan Andrews and Andrew Fox, one of three Fox sons who control parts of the family business across logistics, airports and property, are particularly fond of one another’s company, with a shared passion for good red wines and fine whisky.
Through Fox and friends like promotions guru Michael Gudinksi, Eddie McGuire and multimillionaire businessman Gerry Ryan owner of Jayco Caravans, Andrews has gained entry into the seductive world of Melbourne’s uber-rich.
“They spend a lot of time in one another’s company talking shit and coming up with ideas that can bring their collective interests to bear,” a Labor source says.
Shortly before Christmas, staff who work for Andrews, Andrew Fox and Ryan were treated to a nosh-up at Vue de monde, one of Melbourne’s priciest restaurants. In response to questions from The Age, Andrews declined to say who picked up the bill.
Ryan, like the Foxes, is an investor in Luke Sayers’ consultancy. Like Fox, he stands to benefit if the Andrews government backs a new quarantine facility at Avalon Airport .
Scuttlebut in a tightly controlled police state like Victoria eventually gets past the borders thanks to communist dissenters who have evaded the Zuckerberg crackdown on fair commentary on his Facebook.
Some of the ardent, well-connected commentators claim to have knowledge of Dan Andrews not behaving “appropriately” while visiting Fox’s Portsea residence, in spite of his earlier statement in Parliament.
The Facebookers allege Andrews is fighting a rape charge in court, under the radar naturally, for a dalliance with one of Lindsay Fox’s grand-daughters aged 17.
In return Andrews is said to be prosecuting his assailants for bashing him senseless over the alleged rape.
Who knows, after discovering the intrinsically connected Communist Chinese Party’s Belt and Road involvement with Andrews and the Labor government that flew under the national radar for some time added to persistent stories of dozens of Chinese aircraft night-flying into Melbourne airports during the lockdowns, anything is possible in the Garden State.
It is hard to believe how the medical mafia has so indoctrinated the public – spiraling death and injury rate in US
The data in VAERS now goes through March 26, 2021, and records 50,861 adverse events, including 2,249 deaths following injections of the experimental COVID “vaccines.”
Besides the recorded 2,249 deaths, there were 8,287 visits to Emergency Room doctors, 911 permanent disabilities, and 4,824 hospitalizations

Lying doctors and government trying to cover up the obvious vax deaths

At least twenty-two people have died at a Hampshire care home (Daily Mail is reporting 24 deaths) in one of the worst known outbreaks of the coronavirus pandemic to date.
The deaths occurred at Pemberley House Care Home in Basingstoke, operated by private firm Avery Healthcare.
The outbreak was first declared on Tuesday, January 5, with 60 per cent of its residents testing positive for the disease, according to sources.
Within three weeks, 22 people had died – over one-third of the home’s residents.
It is understood the outbreak started as residents began to have their first coronavirus vaccines. The Medicines and Healthcare Products Regulation Agency (MHRA) said there was no suggestion the vaccine was responsible for the deaths.
Government advice states that one “can not catch Covid-19 from the vaccine but it is possible to have caught Covid-19 and not realise you have the symptoms until after your vaccination appointment”, adding that it may take “a week or two” after the first dose to build up protection.
A spokesperson for the MHRA said they were saddened by the deaths but said they were not linked to the vaccine patients might have received, saying: “We are saddened to hear about any deaths which have occurred since receiving COVID-19 vaccination. However, our surveillance does not suggest that the COVID-19 vaccines have contributed to any deaths.
It is not unexpected that some of these people may naturally fall ill due to their age or underlying conditions shortly after being vaccinated, without the vaccine playing any role in that.” Full Article.
Your grandma is next! Fight Morrison’s creeping cashless economy agenda
From the Australian Citizens Party
The Senate will soon vote on the Morrison government’s bill to extend the trials of the Indue cashless welfare card. These trials are part of the government’s and banks’ creeping cashless agenda, to force Australians into electronic payments and effectively trap them in banks. The government’s bill to ban cash transactions over $10,000 is part of the same agenda. While Australians angrily reacted in huge numbers to the $10,000 cash ban, which sparked an insurrection against the bill in the government’s own ranks, too many have failed to recognise the cashless welfare card is a foot in the door for the same agenda. If you oppose the push to a cashless economy, call cross-bench Senators Jacqui Lambie, Stirling Griff and Rex Patrick before Wednesday to demand they oppose the bill.
Don’t fall for the justification that the Indue cashless welfare card ensures welfare recipients in highly disadvantaged communities spend their money responsibly and not on alcohol and cigarettes. The card is a totalitarian technological short-cut that is a substitute for addressing the real causes of welfare dependency and drug and alcohol abuse in disadvantaged communities. It is also a trial of a program that is intended to be rolled out Australia-wide, which will include recipients of the aged pension. The government falsely and insultingly calls the pension welfare when in fact it is a payment for which pensioners have contributed all their lives. The trials currently include recipients of disability and carers payments.
On 11 September 2019, the Citizens Party exposed how the Indue cashless welfare card is part of the broader push for a cashless economy:
The Morrison government’s cashless welfare card, and draft $10,000 cash ban bill, are part of the program to force Australians into a cashless economy system that will enable the private banking cartel and government to monitor and measure their words-the financial activities of every Australian.
In 2012 the RBA [Reserve Bank of Australia]-the high priests of the financial system who conjured Australia into a debt and real-estate bubble, and now use monetary policy solely to pump more debt into the bubble to prop up the banks-conducted a review of the payments system, using its legislated powers, unique among central banks, to promote efficiency and competition in the payments system. That review led to the establishment of the Australian Payments Council (APC), which was founded by the Australian Payments Clearing Association (APCA, now Australian Payments Network) to promote a strategic agenda for the Australian payments system through industry collaboration. The APC set out to create the platform for real time electronic payments clearing (including peer-to-peer consumers instantly paying each other through their phones), which is the infrastructure for a cashless economy. This idea became the New Payments Platform (NPP), and to coordinate the project and industry efforts to bring it to life, APCA engaged global accounting giant KPMG.
The NPP is now up and running, although in a fledgling state. It is jointly owned by 13 of the biggest financial institutions in Australia. Extraordinarily, the RBA itself is one of the owners-a massive conflict of interests for Australia’s central bank to effectively be in a business partnership with the private institutions it is supposed to regulate. Another curious name on the owners’ register is Indue, the private corporation that holds the contract to manage the government’s cashless welfare debit card, for which Indue is paid $10,000 per card to administer, and which the government wants to roll out Australia-wide.
While KPMG was coordinating the NPP, its former boss, Michael Andrew (now deceased)-the only Australian to ever become the worldwide boss of one of the Big Four global accounting firms-was chairing the government’s Black Economy Taskforce. In the Taskforce’s 2017 report, Andrew recommended the $10,000 cash ban to move people and businesses out of cash and into the banking system, which makes economic activity more visible, auditable and efficient. In other words, to force Australians on to the NPP!
With the Indue card the government is picking off welfare recipients to be the first forced into their cashless regime, but your grandma is next. Meanwhile the banks are succeeding in using the pandemic disruption to advance their plans to reduce cash use and make people more reliant on electronic payment systems.
Here’s the good news: although it’s officially still in the Parliament as a bill, the government’s $10,000 cash ban has stalled. The government has gone very quiet on the issue, and that is entirely due to the huge public backlash they received after unveiling the bill last year. The Australian people fought them back, but must continue to do so every time the government tries to push the cashless agenda. This cashless welfare card bill is one of those times, so the Citizens Party is calling on concerned Australians to contact the three cross-bench Senators before Wednesday to insist they oppose this bill.

Aged care homes spend just $6 a day on food for older, former tax payers now paying aged care Mafioso hundreds of millions of dollars to neglect them. They deserve much more than what the Mafioso dish out
from ABC and Cairnsnews
Sydney’s streets were thick with smoke as the blazes took hold on December 5 last year. That may explain why few noticed or cared about the final sitting day in Canberra.
But what happened in the Senate that day shows just how strong the ties that bind the aged care lobby and government really are.
At 9.30 that day, some crucial amendments to aged care legislation were introduced which would force nursing home to reveal how they spent their $20 billion of taxpayer funds each year — specifically, how much went to staff, food and “the amounts paid out to parent bodies”.
Unlike hospital and child care centres, aged care facilities can employ as few staff as they like because there are no staff-to-resident ratios in nursing homes.
When it comes to food, a study of 800 nursing homes shows the average spend is just $6 a day.
The Senate vote was taking place just five weeks after the scathing interim report from the Royal Commission into Aged Care Quality and Safety.
Among its findings of a “sad and shocking” system which was “inhumane, abusive and unjustified”, the commissioners also commented on the lack of transparency in aged care, with the numbers of complaints, assaults and staff numbers all kept secret from the public.
Are you worried about aged care in Australia?
“My amendments are all about transparency and accountability — and, boy, do we need more of this,” said Senator Stirling Griff from Centre Alliance, who proposed the amendments.
When the crucial vote came, Labor, the Greens, Centre Alliance and Jacqui Lambie supported it. But the Government voted against it and, with the help of Pauline Hanson, the reform was defeated.
