Mark of the Beast – digital identification is being legislated right now in Canberra

Minister’s foreword to ‘Your guide to the Digital Identity legislation’

As we have seen during recent years, Australians are keen and willing to adapt to challenges (Scamdemic). In recent years, our nation has transformed the way we go about our daily lives – and it all revolves around digital. From shopping to banking to accessing government services, Australia has turned to digital in droves.

Federal Liberal Minister Stewart Robert is going to have you producing your ID before purchasing any item including food. Submissions for this bill close on October 27, 2021

With this comes great benefits – a thriving digital economy drives growth by enabling businesses to prosper, providing more job opportunities for Australians, and connecting us with emerging industries and technologies across the world. However, Australians and Australian businesses must have trust and confidence that the system and their personal information is safe and secure.

A safe, thriving digital economy is the best way we can grow the Australian economy.

A safe, thriving digital economy is not possible without digital identity – that is, a safe, secure and convenient way for Australians to prove their identity online.

This is the focus of the proposed Digital Identity legislation. The Trusted Digital Identity Bill, once passed by Parliament, will establish permanent oversight and governance structures for the Australian Government Digital Identity System, and enshrine in law important privacy and consumer protections. It builds on strong safeguards already in place, providing the authority for a consistent set of rules that will protect Australians and Australian businesses. The work achieved in this space, and the future opportunities that legislation will enable, are critical parts of the Morrison Government’s ambition for our nation to be a leading digital economy and society by 2030.

The release of this exposure draft of the Bill and supporting materials is the next step in a multi-year journey of consultation to ensure the legislation is robust, fit-for-purpose, and meets public expectations. My sincere thanks to those who have contributed their views to date. I encourage you all to review the materials and provide your feedback to help us ensure this important work is done right.

Halls of shame – Australian Universities ban free speech

James Cook University in Cairns leads the pack. Their precious academics don’t like peer reviews of their sometimes dodgy work. Never let the facts get in the way when appeasing governments for more and bigger grants.

A dark cloud hangs over the future of academic freedom of speech in Australia following the High Court’s ruling today against Great Barrier Reef expert Dr Peter Ridd, Katter’s Australian Party MPs have said.

The KAP which – alongside a variety of other supporters from across the country – have stood in solidarity with Dr Ridd as he took his former employer James Cook University (JCU) to court after being sacked in 2018, said the professor deserved to be applauded for his tenacity.

MHR Bob Katter; Dr Peter Ridd; Nick Dametto MLA and leader of KAP, Robbie Katter MLA address a recent cane industry forum in Ayr.
Dr Ridd said today he “may have lost a battle but he will win the war.”

Hinchinbrook MP Nick Dametto said today’s decision by the High Court meant, by law, Dr Ridd was in breach of his of JCU work contract when he publicly raised quality assurance and trust concerns around fellow researchers’ works.

The ruling had nothing to do with Dr Ridd’s expertise on the GBR or the validity of his scientific views, he said.

Mr Dametto currently has a Bill before the Queensland Parliament seeking a full repeal of the Palaszczuk Labor Government’s Environmental Protection (Great Barrier Reef Protection Measures) and Other Legislation Amendment Act 2019.

This Bill, labelled as “farm-destroying” due to the onerous requirements it places on North and Central Queensland cane growers, was predicated on water quality research similar to that which was questioned by Dr Ridd.

Dr Ridd has long called for the establishment of an Office of Science Quality Assurance to question and monitor the validity of scientific research used to underpin government policy.

“We believe that, in the court of public opinion, Dr Ridd has been successful,” Mr Dametto said.

“As a scientist, academic and individual we believe he deserves to be applauded for putting everything on the line to fight for what he, and many others, believe in, which is the fundamental importance of freedom of speech and academic integrity.

“In the name of standing up for what he thought was morally right and just, Dr Ridd has sacrificed his job and potentially his career and reputation, but he has done this because he believed it was right to at least question the science. 

“Few people understand the effects of sediment and nutrient run-off to the GBR better than Dr Ridd, and systemic quality assurance problems are still plaguing the way GBR ‘science’ is being used to affect modelling that drives government policy and public opinion. 

“The gravest concern attached to today’s ruling is that it has the real potential to scare off anyone else who wants to raise their head out of the trenches to question not only the reef science institutions but also science across the board.”

Mr Dametto said that, without academic freedom, there was a potential to stifle the progression of science and send us back to a time of limited academic thinking not seen since the Dark Ages. 

Kennedy MP Bob Katter said that the cases of Ridd and Pavlou made it quite obvious that there was no freedom of speech on Australia’s university campuses.

“Peter Ridd was expressing opinions, and that has been the entire essence of universities since the days of Plato and Socrates,” he said.

“There must a free expression of ideals for universities to operate properly. When I was at university I disagreed with radicals who opposed Vietnam but I defended tenaciously their right to free expression of their point of view.

“The CEO class now run the universities, the corporations and half the trade unions. They are stifling freedoms in this country.”

Qld cops, teachers and nurses speak out in defiance of Covid mandates

By staff writers

A retired Queensland police officer says the Queensland Police Union “are a bunch of cowards” for not supporting its members over informed choice with the Covid jab.

(Back) Former veteran police officer, Phil Nataro; Tracy Tully, Teachers Union and nurse, Margaret Gilbert, (Front) Leader of Katters Australian party, Robbie Katter and KAP Member for Hinchinbrook, Nick Dametto slammed the Labor Government and Liberal Opposition for their ongoing silence about Parliamentarians being forced to get the jab.

The Queensland Police Union President and former officer Ian Leavers is probably best known for his controversial public comments a few years ago “…only police officers should be allowed to own firearms…” in Queensland.

This is the union, like a lot of others that has become part and parcel of the Queensland Labor Party government. Perhaps the most outstanding, recent example of union and government solidarity was in Melbourne last week when many thousands of paid-up CFMEU members took to the streets in defiance of the corrupt Daniels’ regime of forced jabs and the union’s leadership being in bed with the corrupt Premier Andrew Daniels. Melbourne is now proving to be a Chinese Communist Party enclave after it was discovered last year the Victoria Labor Party was in solid partnership with the Chinese government.

Speaking on the podium with leader of Katters Australian Party, Robbie Katter, veteran cop Phil Nataro was scathing of the union which he said was once a very powerful body.

He said it was none of the government’s business if he was vaccinated or not.

“I shouldn’t have to tell anyone if I am vaccinated or not, it’s a personal choice,” Mr Nataro told the news conference.

“That’s what this is all about. Now we have unprecedented bullying and segregation in the police force and it needs to stop and someone in the executive leadership team has to grow a head and say enough is enough.

“You can’t keep doing this to your members.”

Representing the Teachers Union Tracy Tully and nurse Margaret Gilbert also castigated the Labor government for forcing union members out of their jobs over a lack of informed consent.

Ms Tully said the Public Service in Queensland and Australia was abusing its power and the Westminster system of government.

“They are not following the rules and regulations and they must consult comprehensively and they must provide risk assessment which they are not doing.”

Citing the hypocrisy of the current double standards when the Premier refuses to mandate the jab for politicians, Mr Katter said the motion would be designed to test whether “what’s good enough for the goose was good enough for the gander” in Queensland.  

Mr Katter said all levels of government had pushed the boundaries on individual choice, personal freedom and civic liberties over the last 18 months in the name of the pandemic.  

He said one of the worst examples was elected leaders’ silence on the COVID-19 vaccine mandate for State’s 15,000-strong police workforce and 90,000 Queensland Health employees.

To date, Education Minister Grace Grace has not ruled out mandating vaccinations for Queensland teachers and early childhood educators.

“While the KAP has encouraged all Queenslanders to have a conversation with their doctor about getting the vaccination, we are staunchly opposed to vaccine mandates,” Mr Katter said.

“In particular we have an issue with the way people’s employment and their fundamental need to earn an income has been used coercively to demand they comply.

“Our offices have been contacted by people right across the State, many who are employed in the policing and nursing professions, who feel very strongly about the importance of choice with relation to vaccines – however they feel they are unable to speak out.

“Yet at the same the requirements that have been forced on to our police, our nurses and health care workers, possibly our teachers and many in the private sector, are not required of politicians.

“We feel this smacks of double standards and arrogance and would like to know what justification the Premier and Opposition Leader have for their silence on this.”

Mr Katter said if the Parliament was unwilling to mandate vaccines for politicians, it should immediately ban double-jabs being required for other workers.  

Qld Labor Party will not force MP’s to get jab but enforces it for most public servants

MP Robbie Katter hits out at Premier’s hypocrisy – is she afraid of another jab?

Queensland Labor Premier Annastacia Palaszczuk won’t force the state’s politicians to get the jab but on the other hand is forcing 115,000 public servants to run the dangerous spike protein gauntlet which, according the the world’s leading epidemiologists has been designed to eventually kill.

The Queensland Labor Government has denied the Queensland Parliament an opportunity to debate the double standards it is presiding over which give MPs freedom of choice around COVID-19 vaccines while allowing jab mandates to be enforced in other workplaces.

To date, the State’s 15,000-strong police workforce and 90,000 Queensland Health employees have been subject to vaccine mandates that have required workers to either comply or be forced out of a job.

The Education Minister Grace Grace has not yet publicly ruled out requiring vaccinations for Queensland teachers and early childhood educators, and mandates are already in place across the private sector. This includes in the aviation and transport industries. 

MP Robbie Katter says the Premier is full of double standards by forcing several thousands of resignations by police and public servants who are awake to the deadly jab and refuse to take it

Today Katter’s Australian Party Leader and Traeger MP Robbie Katter attempted to move a motion in the Queensland Parliament, calling on the Palaszczuk Labor Government to intervene in workforce vaccine mandates unless it requires all State politicians be vaccinated. 

Citing the hypocrisy of the current double standards, KAP Leader and Traeger MP Robbie Katter said the motion was designed to test whether “what’s good enough for the goose was good enough for the gander” in Queensland. 

Unfortunately it was voted down by the Labor Party meaning the debate could not even go ahead. 

Mr Katter said all levels of government had pushed the boundaries on individual choice, personal freedom and civic liberties over the last 18 months in the name of the pandemic. 

He said while the KAP’s position was to encourage all Queenslanders to have a conversation with their doctor about getting the COVID-19, and other, vaccines, the Party was staunchly opposed to vaccine mandates.

The text of the KAP’s motion was:

That this House agrees

  1. That all Queenslanders should be encouraged to get vaccinations, including COVID-19 vaccinations;
  2. That workplace vaccination mandates contravene fundamental rights of healthcare choice and access to employment free from discrimination and coercion because of healthcare choices;
  3. That breaching these rights through a vaccination mandate cannot be imposed by any business, government entity or authority without consent of the Queensland Parliament; and
  4. A breach of these rights may only be implemented when all Members of the Queensland Parliament are required to be fully vaccinated.

Mr Katter said it had been a disappointing day for democracy in the state of Queensland.

Sea Swift loses coast guard vessel overboard

Has anyone seen a six metre mono-hull vessel belonging to QF25 Coast Guard Cape York?

Several weeks ago it was loaded onto Sea Swift’s MV Trinity Bay passenger/cargo ship at Seisia at the top of Cape York Peninsula bound for Cairns to undergo maintenance.

When the Trinity Bay berthed at Cairns wharf the Coast Guard boat was nowhere to be seen.

The Queensland Labor Party has been lost at sea for a generation, and losing a vessel overboard should be quite normal.

It fell off somewhere during the 1000 klm journey heading south along the eastern coast line of Far North Queensland.

Australian Border Force has confirmed it was not one of their vessels.

Sea Swift freight company was purchased by the Queensland Investment Corporation two years ago.

Labor Premier Annastacia Palaszczuk QIC and former Deputy Premier Jackie Trad are listed as shareholders.

Industry sources said QIC paid an unconfirmed $300 million for the Cairns-based freight company which services much of Northern Australia including the Torres Strait and Gulf of Carpentaria.

The Queensland Labor Party should feel right at home with the disappearance of this $280,000 vessel, no doubt resting on the bottom of the Coral Sea.

The ALP has been lost at sea for a generation.

Only mugs wear masks as useless, inaccurate PCR tests in Brisbane cause another unlawful lockdown

Hapless cops to be unleashed onto down-trodden residents under orders from the ALP lunatics in George Street asylum

from New Daily

Queensland has immediately returned to mandatory mask-wearing in Brisbane and the neighbouring Moreton Bay region after four new local coronavirus cases in the past 24 hours.

The infections, which break a 50-day streak without local cases in Queensland, include a man from Eatons Hill who works in an aviation training facility.

This communist stooge and Queensland Labor Premier is ensuring all small business collapses with the help of totally inaccurate Covid PCR tests

Queensland Health announced him a mystery case on Monday night.

The man, who is in his 30s, is double-vaccinated but had his second jab only a week ago. His wife has also tested positive, although their child is so far negative.

Premier Annastacia Palaszczuk said there were significant concerns about the third case – a truck driver who was active in the community for a week while infectious, and who was staying in share accommodation.

“The police are speaking to this truck driver to get some more information from him,” she said on Tuesday.

The truck driver stayed at two hotels in Spring Hill and a boarding house in Stevens Road, South Brisbane, while potentially infectious.

The fourth is someone who tested positive after 14 days of hotel quarantine. Queensland authorities are working to determine if it is a historic infection.

There were also two more overseas-acquired cases.

Masks will be mandatory indoors and outdoors, if social distancing is not possible, in the two local government areas for at least a fortnight.

Chief health officer Jeannette Young said visitors would also be restricted in hospitals, aged-care and disability homes and prisons.

She said the next 48 hours were critical for Brisbane – and settings would be reviewed daily.

“At this stage, I do not think a lockdown is warranted. That could change, but I am really, really very comforted by the fact that people do know how to respond and respond very quickly. We have seen that for the last few outbreaks,” she said.

Ms Palaszczuk echoed Dr Young’s view.

“There’s no need to panic because Queenslanders have been doing the right thing, especially in the south-east,” she said.

“We’ve been here before. I know that south-east Queenslanders will rise to this challenge once again.”

Sign this petition to kill one of the LNP/ALP duoploy’s most Orwellian pieces of legislation that Scott Morrison wants to introduce before the predicted thousands of vax victims start to die next year. Bob Katter MHR described the bill as draconian and Orwellian that enables the Federal Police or others to log onto your email server or social media and publish lies or anything else they consider as entrapment to achieve their evil ends.

Queensland cops rail against mandatory mRNA jab

Public interaction with Queensland Police will be even more risky after the Labor Party Corporation forces its 12,000 thick blue line to take the hated mRNA therapy.

Vaxxed officers will soon be virus shedding contaminating everything they touch and the air around them. Wearing masks as most intelligent people are aware is a complete waste of time in preventing the passage of any pathogen.

Even considering the flawed PCR test, watch the Brisbane Metro infection rates go through the roof as these cops move around cities.

Commissioner Katarina Carrol with her boss, Labor Premier Annastacia Palaszczuk who is calling the Covid shots

Nearly all of the patients admitted to Sydney hospitals when the latest Covid outbreak started several weeks ago had been vaccinated according to hospital staff who contacted Cairns News.

But some Queensland cops are not going down without a fight. At least 30 of them and their families have engaged a solicitor to fight the mandate.

They have set up a crowd-funding page to raise money to hire a lawyer, and it has received more than $18,000 in donations in just a handful of days.

For this outrage the dizzy blonde Commissioner Katarina Carrol, a career public servant, said she would have the fund raising investigated. Do not upset the Covid brotherhood…or sisterhood, now it appears….

But the Queensland Police Force has a union led by former officer and suspected megalomaniac Ian Leavers who once said only police should own firearms.

So it seems this courageous troop have not asked for his help.

Many of those donating appear to be serving and retired police officers, and the group behind the social media page seem to be taking a broader stance on vaccine mandates for employees in other sectors, public or private.

They also stressed that they were not “anti-vaccine”.

“We are not pro- or anti- the vaccine. This is not a pro- or anti- vaccine matter,” the group stated.

“It is a question of whether our employers on behalf of the government can authorise civil conscription and interfere with the relationship between a patient and their doctor by mandating a vaccine.”

They said that Australia has a “representative democratic government structured to afford its citizens legal protection against the exercise of arbitrary political power.”

In a statement, Commissioner Katarina Carroll said a highly vaccinated population was “the greatest protection we have against the virus”.

“That is why the QPS is mandating vaccinations for the entire workforce in all QPS workplaces within the next five months to protect employees, their families and the community from COVID-19,” Commissioner Carroll said.

Editor:

Can any of our police officer readers give us the crowd funding site for these intelligent protesters so we can get some help for them? – contributed

For any readers wanting to assist; We shall overlook their previous Covid duties and if they have fined any hapless citizen for not wearing a useless mask. Their legal action could help others.

ABC ramps up its hate campaign against Craig Kelly and UAP

The ABC with regular monotony attacks those they see as a threat to their Covid scam campaign

by staff writers

The Liberal and Labor Parties view the ABC as manna from Heaven while the public broadcaster’s vitriolic attacks on those who oppose the official Covid narrative continue unabated.

Latest in line for Aunty’s serve is Craig Kelly the errant member for Hughes in NSW, a Sydney electorate of 106,204 voters.

Look out LNP and Labor you have double-crossed the people for too long and copped too many backhanders for your trouble. Kelly and the UAP are right after you

Kelly left the Liberal Party after his electorate and thousands across the country pressured him to take action about the lockdowns and an avalanche of pending small business bankruptcies.

His pleas to the compromised Prime Minister Scott Morrison and the Liberal apparatus for a halt to the Covid lockdowns fell on deaf ears.

Realising the Liberals were mid-way into a deliberate program of vaccine genocide, Kelly ditched the Big Pharma-controlled party allowing him to continue his anti-Covid campaign which he believes will save many thousands of lives.

Right on cue the slippery Liberal Communications Minister Paul Fletcher said he was looking to see if any action could be taken.

“Sending unsolicited electronic messages containing misinformation or misleading health information during a pandemic is irresponsible,” he said.

“I have asked my department to investigate this matter.”

Labor’s communications spokeswoman Michelle Rowland said the messages were irritating and possibly harmful, and were best ignored.

“Exemptions for political parties are important in protecting implied constitutional freedom of political communication, but it’s important these freedoms are not misused for nefarious purposes,” she said.

“This misinformation and spam is particularly damaging at a time when all Australians are trying to do our best to work together to get through the pandemic.

“We should give this spam the attention it deserves, by ignoring it.”

Craig Kelly and the United Australia Party have them worried after attracting more than 40,000 new members in 10 days. He is a no nonsense, plain talking politician who has shed the party mantle and has meticulously done his homework about the mRNA gene therapy which almost every responsible, recognised epidemiologist and virologist around the world, (except for Australia where few exist), have warned of the dangers of the experimental inoculation.

Kelly’s Youtube advertisement as of today had nearly 8,500,000 views. Wouldn’t Scomo love a similar score?

Katter warns Australia is becoming one of the most oppressive western regimes

by staff writers

Far North Queensland federal member Bob Katter has attacked the Liberal National Party’s Identify and Disrupt bill before Parliament, enabling police to spy on every citizen by coming through a back door in emails and other private media communications.

He said Australia is now a total Orwellian society and voters should be alarmed at the LNP/ALP duopoly’s trashing of human rights.

Independent federal MP Bob Katter warns Australia has become a dystopian Orwellian state with few remaining human rights

The Identify and Disrupt Bill 2021 grants the Australian Federal Police (AFP) and the Australian Criminal Intelligence Commission (ACIC) the power to modify, add, copy, or delete data, on a person’s online accounts.

So what this means is that the AFP can log into your Email, your Facebook, Instagram any other social media, and not only view it but actually alter it however they want. They can send emails on your behalf, they can post things on your behalf, they can engage in criminal activity on your behalf in order to reach their objective. And if they want to throw you under the bus, you’re just collateral damage.

This will not only turn Australia into a bigger surveillance state, but it will make the government the enemy of Australians.

“The Christian Brothers, and other educators, insisted on us reading 1984 and A Brave New World, and now these Orwellian predictions have never seemed more real,” Mr Katter said.

“Whatever argument you have for forsaking your freedoms, at the end of the day you will find it’s a poor trade off.

Mr Katter said Australia was becoming one of the most oppressive western regimes, and things were getting worse every day as both mainstream political parties restricted people’s freedoms.

“George Orwell’s book 1984 released in the 1960s was a horror story, but now it is a brutal reality,” he said.

“The Government can fund multi-million-dollar hardware to use against its own people when at the same time they can’t even provide the resources to protect their citizens against continuous home invasions, build dams, or to firm up our fuel security.

“Even boiling a billy after a walk through the bush can put you in breach of multiple petty regulations these days. It’s 1984 Orwell, not Australia.”

North Queensland in ruins as mostly young black criminals run riot

Hunted police should retaliate with a few shots from their .40 cal Glocks. If they hit an offender or two bad luck – the police have not had time to engage in any pistol practice at the range because they are too busy dodging house bricks!

Katter’s Australian Party MPs have called for a no-holds-barred round-table with the Police Minister, Minister for Youth Justice, Regional Queensland Police Deputy Commissioner Paul Taylor and North Queensland MPs to be held within the next two weeks to address the ruinous state of Queensland’s youth justice system.

“Trust me” says Queensland Labor Premier Annastacia Palaszczuk, the Queen of spin. “We asked the police to back off black criminals” because court appearances were upsetting their perceived culture.

Robbie Katter, KAP Leader and Traeger MP, said the Labor Party had allowed Townsville, and other North Queensland cities like Mount Isa, Cairns and Mareeba to descend into mayhem.

Most Far Northern Aboriginal communities are facing the same problem due solely to Labor’s policies.

“Our cities are now nothing but playgrounds for delinquent youths who have no life skills, no hope for a future and nothing to offer society at this point but carnage,” he said.

“Their offending, which has now turned predatory towards both residents and police, has escalated beyond the parameters of what the current broken youth justice system can try to deal with.

“We need new solutions, and we need Labor to stop playing silly buggers with their spin and manipulated data.”

Mr Katter said crime in his hometown of Mount Isa was eroding business confidence and viability.

“Businesses are now making decisions around whether to open or stay close based on the level of crime being reported in the community,” he said.

“While at the same time we have State Government saying they are getting on top of the issue.

“I have been hearing the message from the community – enough said.”

KAP Hinchinbrook MP Nick Dametto said Townsville’s three Labor MPs needed to stand up for the community, or stand aside.

“Police are now being actively targeted by youth offenders, recently a magistrate’s home was broken into by adult offenders – this is an escalation in brazen attacks on our community, and those employed to uphold the law indicate there’s a dark new era of crime,” he said.

“This offending is premeditated – a cohort of youth offenders are now stealing cars, loading them up with house bricks and actively hunting down police offers who are doing their very best to keep our community safe.

“The KAP has a number of measures we believe need to be implemented to deter offending but it’s up to the State Government to at first accept that their laws are not working and the current punishment is not a deterrent to recidivist youth offenders..

“Who does the Government want to protect here?

“I can’t imagine what it’s like to be a front-line police officer right now on the streets of TownsviIle; these children have no respect for our community, the law or themselves.

“If I was an officer and had a house brick thrown at my vehicle while driving, I would find it very difficult not to discharge my firearm in defense.”

The KAP has reiterated its call for Relocation Sentencing – a policy that would send hardened, recidivist offenders to facilities in the bush for a 6-12 month period of rehabilitation as an alternative to short-term incarceration at over-crowded detention centres like Cleveland.

The party also wants further legislative changes for repeat offenders, including mandatory sentencing for particular crimes including break and enter and the amending of Section 150 of the Youth Justice Act to remove Clause 2e that states detention must be considered a last resort.
