Ian Turnbull’s Non-Trial.

Farmer Ian Turnbull shot dead Greg Turner as a result of legislation removing property rights from the Australian people and the only hope we ought to have of reversing this atrocity. Thomas Jefferson said, “Trial by jury is the only anchor yet imagined by man that can hold a government to the principles of its constitution.” Lord Edward Coke said, “Common law doth control Acts of Parliament and adjudges them, when against common right, to be void.”
Framer Ian Turnbull was denied his common law right to “the lawful judgment of his equals which is the law of the land” and this persecution was relentless until he “simply cracked” and took the life a man who “was only doing his job”.

Another farmer, George Bender, suffered the same violation of his common law rights and also took a life – his own, as an incalculable number of victims of Australian courts continue to do. Meanwhile the general population are kept well fed, entertained and blissfully ignorant of their rights and freedoms.
Ian Turnbull’s trial continues tomorrow in the NSW Supreme Court, Sydney, where “His Honour Justice” Peter Johnson is a typical example of the corrupt and treacherous judiciary destroying any semblance of justice as he lies to tell the uninformed and incompetent jury, “You can only judges the facts. I am the judge of the law and I will direct you accordingly.”- thereby, committing treason which is “an act intent on overthrowing the sovereignty of the people”.
In this trial, there are no facts to judge because prosecution and defence unreservedly agree to the facts. The only dispute here is that Ian Turnbull pleads guilty to manslaughter while the prosecution insists it is murder. The juror has been instructed to choose which definition in law is appropriate.
This trial will follow the same course as every jury trial in Australia does and conclude with the so-called “judge” receiving the verdict from the jury, dismissing them and then carrying on to render his own judgment with any consent and, therefore, no jurisdiction. Because it is “the lawful judgment of his equals” that is mandated by the Rule of Law, any sentence given by a “judge” in this manner is wholly void.
Neither the prosecution nor the defence (and certainly not the “judge”) have any intention of allowing the jury to judge the justice of law that caused the death of Greg Turner at the hands of Ian Turnbull. And, if any juror should dare to venture down that path, they will incur the wrath of “His Honour Justice” Peter Johnson. This is a disgrace and brings shame on the entire country.
Ignore the NSW Liberal/National Party policies that will put you in jail for seven years if you protest against any mining activity even on your own freehold land(Deed of Grant in fee simple). This policy of the NSW Liberal/National Party Corporation only applies to a ‘’thing’. Their corporate policies are gender neutral and do not apply to a living human being. Toss out the NSW party duopoly at the election and replace them with independents and smaller parties. It is working extremely well in Queensland where two Katters Australia Party members and an independent control the excesses of the Labor Government. Bob Katter is the only Australian politician who has ever stood up to the foreign owned CSG mining companies. He has a bill on the table in Federal Parliament for an immediate moratorium on CSG, awaiting support from other members. Unfortunately the CSG companies own the Australian Liberal/National Party, ‘lock, stock and barrel.’ Do not be misled by the lies of the Labor Party. They too wholly support CSG companies, particularly in Queensland where it is a policy platform. The Greens have been in the senate for a decade or more and have not introduced a bill to stop CSG. They too are false prophets with their noses in the trough.
Local Communities Fight Back!
A social movement is sweeping the nation.
Communities are coming together to fight for their way of life and protect their health, their environment and their future…
And they’re having FUN!
All around Australia people are getting involved in the fight against gas mining at the local level. Some communities are even achieving big wins against these mining giants!
People are going door to door and surveying their own communities in a grassroots democracy process. More than 360 communities have declared themselves Gasfield Free. They’re not waiting for their governments, they’re doing it for themselves!
And don’t believe for a moment that this only applies to rural communities – Sydney’s Drinking Water Catchment is also under coal and gas licenses. Nothing is safe.
So – do you know what could happen to your local community?
I hope to see you at future events.
Thanks for standing with us,
Annie Kia – Community Engagement Coordinator
p.s. We can’t do this alone – we’d love to have your help!

Exclusive from Harry Palmer
New anti-protest laws to give police powers to search, seize, and move on protesters align with a Nazi Germany dictator’s handbook.
The NSW Baird government laws will increase fines for illegal entry into CSG & mining sites from $550 to $5,500. Anti CSG protestors can be jailed for up to 7 years. This reeks of a mining corporation’s puppet government.
At the same time this Baird government has strengthened it’s wrath upon protestors freedom of speech, introducing the “Petroleum Onshore Legislation Amendment Harmonisation Act” to reduce mining companies penalties when in breach of the law.
For example, a current $550,000 fine for a mining company breach will now be a $5,000 penalty infringement notice.
Mike Baird at a dinner in 2014 promised his former chief of staff Steve Galilee, who is now head of the Minerals Council, to crack down on protesters and reduce mining company fines. He has now delivered that promise.
Mining companies write their own Environmental Impact Statements [EIS] worded with very creative misinformation on health, community, water, etc. Under the crimes act, providing false and/or misleading information attracts a fine of $550,000 plus $50,000 a day until the false statement is rectified. That now has been reduced to fine of $2,500.
Failing to submit a report on a petroleum title attracted a fine of $1.1 million plus $110,000 a day. That is amended to a fine of $2,500. Now there is a real incentive for companies to lie and mislead with greater creativity.
Farmers protesting against mining company’s blatant violation of EIS who park a tractor or truck across an access on their own freehold property in protest, are looking at 7 years jail, a $5,000 fine, and their vehicle confiscated and destroyed.
Welcome to the 4th Reich of NSW. The Liberals, Nationals (the farmers friend), Shooters and Fishers party and Christian Democrat Fred Nile.
Demands from Labor and the Greens that the Bill at least be taken to the Law and Justice Committee were dismissed by the government.
Greens MP and Justice Spokesman David Shoebridge said:
“The right to protest dates back 800 years to the Magna Carta but Premier Baird is so arrogant that he believes he can trample that right to deliver for the Liberal party’s paymasters in the mining industry.
“Protest is an essential part of a functioning democracy, it ended slavery, delivered Aboriginal land rights, gave women the vote, saved the Franklin and protected the Sydney Rocks area.
“These laws have no social licence in NSW and if ever the police or the Liberal National parties try to enforce them, they will hit a wall of public protest that will stop them in their tracks”.
So can we count on you voting one of these LNP/LABOR parties back into government to support the tyranny of the two-party system and maintain this level of dictatorship and stop your freedom to protest?
Your water supplies will be gone and so will the farms.

Ignoring a decade of Hunter Valley farmers in their plight to halt coal mining and gas fracking of prime agricultural land, Prime Minister Malcolm Turnbull now is at the coal face himself.
His family farm lies under clouds of dust driven by prevailing winds 5 kilometres from Nathan Tinkler’s open cut venture at the underground Dartbrook coal mine, which is of great concern to the township of Aberdeen, next door to the mine.
Malcolm advocates the mining of prime food bowl agricultural lands, but those driving the opposition are wealthy horse stud breeders also backed by our ever arrogant Prime Minister.
We will be following this battle front with interest comparing the plight of neighbouring Liverpool Plains farmers under siege from coal mining operations protected by government legislation. Many of those farmers have been prosecuted for trying to protect their properties.
Election now looms through a contrived fog of media polls, drowning out that distinct stench of political corruption and previously tolerated arrogance, now being challenged.
‘King Malcolm’ now sits upon a throne of thorns. Will he legislate or will he capitulate?
Death and disaster has befallen farmers as a result of government support of invasive coal and gas mining.
Independent internet outlets are now dwarfing establishment media, and have presented the Vaucluse farming PM with a political cross roads.
What do you think he will do?
