“He can look and I hope he looks at the UK and I hope he looks at Australia and I hope he looks at Ukraine”, Trump said. “I hope he looks at everything, because there was a hoax that was perpetrated on our country.”

Home Affairs Minister Dutton wanted to clean out far left and far right “lunatics,” with ASIO Amendment bill
The ASIO Amendment bill 2020 introduced to Parliament by then Home Affairs Minister Peter Dutton on Wednesday May 13, 2020 made it easier for ASIO to install tracking devices in a person’s bag or car without the approval of anyone outside the organisation.
Among the many treasures in this innocently titled bill are oral arrest warrants – including for children (s.34B). Questioning warrants that allow anyone between the age of 14 to 18 in relation to politically motivated violence, to be detained and questioned can be issued orally, ignoring the need for nasty paper trails which could later prove inconvenient in court
“Mr Dutton said it would only apply to teenagers suspected of engaging in terrorist attacks, not espionage or other examples of foreign interference”.
Failed spymaster 007 Dutton thus condoned teenage spying as acceptable under his watch
Dutton began telling reporters it was important for security agencies to deal with threats from both rightwing and leftwing “lunatics”.
“If somebody is going to cause harm to Australians, I just don’t care whether they’re on the far right, far left, somewhere in between, they will be dealt with,” the home affairs minister said. “And if the proliferation of information into the hands of rightwing lunatics or leftwing lunatics is leading to a threat in our country, then my responsibility is to make sure our agencies are dealing with it and they are.”
Australia with just 25 million people, has tax payers funding some 20 federal security agencies, manned by public servants terrified of making decisions that may reflect on career prospects, imagine the information blockade and false flags flying from these duplicated bureaucratic empire fortresses.
The Cyber Security sector employs 26,500 who fail to protect sensitive data from international hackers. ASIO has around 2000 staff. Nearly every day there are media reports of a business or government quango being hacked.
There have been 41 counter terrorism operations in Australia with 93 people charged but no stats on convictions was available.
The USA reported in 2010, there are 1,271 government organisations, 1,931 private companies with 854,000 people holding top-secret clearances working on counter terrorism and homeland security for a population of 332 million people
This ASIO Bill is about the 90th such piece of legislation passed following the 2001 New York attacks. And there are around 10 more civil rights-eroding bills before federal parliament.
One of those pending is the Identify and Disrupt Bill. Another Dutton special, this aims to enhance the abilities of the AFP and the Australian Crime Intelligence Commission to sweep the internet for anonymous operators and take over their online accounts.
Dutton is only the latest architect piecing together this ever-encroaching internal surveillance system that’s been propagated upon the pretext of a perceived foreign terrorist threat that’s never really come to fruition on these shores.
The closest such incident was the Lindt Café siege, which was the work of a mentally unsound local playing the ISIS apparition, rather than any real overseas operators. But despite this, NSW police were given shoot-to-kill powers in response to guard against any purported future terrorism.
Just like his predecessor George Brandis, Christian Porter is part of the surveillance state legislating act. In 2018, the attorney general oversaw the passing of laws permitting the easy deployment of the Australian and international defence forces for domestic incidents, and lately, he’s done the same with ADF reservists.
Indeed, over the last two years, it’s also come to the fore that home affairs minister Dutton is itching to set the nation’s international spying agency – the Australian Signals Directorate (ASD) – upon his own citizens.
And following the leaking of such rumours to the press, the AFP went on to raid the Canberra residence of journalist Annika Smethurst for breaking the news.
Disgraced Labor politician Sam Dastyari, of Iranian origin, from 2013 to 2018 represented NSW in the Australian Senate. In November 2014 Dastyari declared a Chinese company, linked to the Chinese government, had provided him with $44,000 to settle legal bills by providing counter-surveillance advice. Dastyari’s net wealth as of December 2022 is $5 Million, but he is not in jail for treason or espionage.
Tens of thousands public servants, defence force personnel and government contractors are required to undergo security checking before accessing confidential government information as do Ministerial staff. Government ministers are not required to clear ASIO scrutiny.
Big brother is alive and very well enjoying continued support from the voting public allowing the nation to retain subservient status to our unaccountable, lying, corrupt political masters.
Hackers have no opposition when it comes to bureaucratic IT drones
By HARRY PALMER
Recent computer hacking of Optus and Medibank confidential data also raises the question of security with our nations public confidential records.
Computer security in government is farcical. Subjected to political spin, bureaucratic bungling, un-accountability and unadulterated El-Toto-Excreta is a despicable display of Australian government inability to maintain top security of our public confidential records.
Breaching Australian government and corporate computers is game world hackers enjoy.
We the public will never know to what extent this has occurred. Back in 2016, the Australian Bureau of Statistics census under PM Malcolm Turnbull saturated the media with the introduction of on-line forms. The launch took place so government computers started to melt down causing a national outage. Hackers or incompetence, this government project given the Public Service OK to go on-line failed. It would have been quicker for me to carve my details into stone with a hammer and chisel than to wait for Malcolm’s magic machine to revive.
Let us not forget the 2013 Australian Security and Intelligence Organization (ASIO) classified blueprints plans of the new headquarters building in Canberra stolen from a building contractors computer. The cyber attack was confirmed to have come from a server in China. Then federal Attorney General Mark Dreyfus, also our curren AG and responsible minister for ASIO, declined to say the breach took place despite world media publishing irrefutable information daily. What controls were set in place by ASIO to secure these highly confidential national security plans being stored on a building contractors computer and what has changed today?
It should be stated again that much of our classified military data is stored in Chinese-owned data banks.
Then most Australian states sent their electoral rolls to Chinese data banks, not for election manipulation of course.
First a need to understand government and public service mentality that includes massive power and unlimited department control by computer illiterate senior management often delivering unqualified final decisions for disaster.
The more qualifications you have the greater chance of securing a controlled public service job. At no time is the applicants capability or expertise questioned, academic credentials secure government jobs. Keep in mind once admitted into the bureaucratic inner sanctum you are unaccountable for your blunders with a 99% chance of holding your public service job unscathed, short of having set fire the office building or launched a missile into the canteen .
Chains of command in the public service keep highly paid dinosaurs at the top controlling drones within the ant farms, all trained to obey and not think. These clones are accompanied by cash hungry contractors looking for any opportunity to slip their fingers into the till.
In 2013 Indians became the 8th most populous army of hackers by the number of cyber attacks and can be found in a ripe community of “hackers-for-hire” firms in India. By 2016 Indian hacking activity jumped to 6th place, now holding down 3rd position in 2022.
China’s “hacker army” personnel is suggested from 50,000 to 100,000 individuals and still holds the world No1 title otherwise known as “patient visionaries & social engineering experts” with their favorite targets being Asia, the Pacific and Australia.
What has this to do with our security under safer keeping by a duopoly government hosting a bungling bureaucracy in charge?
Contractors (not staff) make up a big contingent of government programmers and IT specialists from Indian or Chinese heritage. Passing ASIO background checks together with the right credentials (not required by hacker attackers), move into positions in government where they can do what they do best with computers. We are not suggesting all are conspirators but a dark cloud remains.
Referencing Optus and Medibank computer security, let me quote from the Financial Review October 27th 2022;
“However, despite the company admitting to losing such a huge hoard of sensitive data, the privacy watchdog said it was not ready to talk about the likelihood of starting a new investigation into Medibank’s conduct, or expanding the Optus investigation to incorporate Medibank”.
As the buck passing continues government fight to stem the illegal flow of information from their custody is Attorney General and Spin Doctor, Mark Dreyfus. An expert in commercial and planning law, just the credentials to defend a nation from computer hackers, aimed his deadly weapon of LEGISLATION squarely at the cyber crooks and truant Australian corporation’s launching the barrage with a payload of penalties for an unknown foe.
China resources the youth (12 -20) into their computer invader”s army by talent and ability not PhD’s or parchment documented certificates with accreditation required in Australia.
Without doubt Australian youth have produced many with superior hacking knowledge and programing capabilities found around the world, no qualifications just 100% raw skills leaving public service academia floundering. Government needs to be sourcing this talent pool to combat cyber attacks without any interference from an incompetent public service.Wake up Australia, you do not take a knife to a gun fight.
And not forgetting the Labor apparatus wants to give everybody a national ID pass containing all of your personal data. No doubt some of the sheeples will fall for it.

Secretive annual talks influence Australian foreign policy
from Alison Ryan
Most Australians would be instinctively suspicious of a forum that, while the event itself is not secret, attracts scant publicity, and the discussions are secret—participants strictly observe rules that prevent them from disclosing the contents of any comments made at the event, even without identifying the speaker; they are only permitted to disclose their own comments.
It would enrage Australians to learn that regular participants in this forum publicly sneer at an Australian journalist imprisoned in China, and that the forum was used to plant a fake “spy” story in the Australian media to undermine Australia’s most beneficial international relationship. Australians can be confident that the politicians in Canberra who are strident in their public defence of Australian sovereignty and have made it their mission to combat foreign interference would use the full power of Parliament and foreign interference laws to scrutinise the working of this operation and expose its agenda.
Australians would indeed have such reactions, if this scenario were about a foreign interference operation by China. Except it’s not a scenario, and it’s not about Australia and China. It’s a very real, 30-year operation influencing Australia and the United States, called the Australian American Leadership Dialogue (AALD). The “dialogue” occurs during an annual junket alternating between the USA and Australia, the latest of which has just wrapped up in Washington DC.
If you were wondering why Australia’s bombastic new opposition leader Peter Dutton has been quiet lately, and why he gave an interview to Sky News on Sunday morning with the Washington Capitol building in the background, it’s because he has been on the latest AALD junket to the USA. Underscoring its political importance, the new CEO of the AALD is Tony Smith, the just-retired former Speaker of Australia’s House of Representatives, and its Advisory Board includes Professor Glynn Davis, Prime Minister Anthony Albanese’s newly appointed Secretary of the Department of Prime Minister and Cabinet, i.e. the head of Australia’s Commonwealth public service.
The above description of how the AALD operates is entirely accurate:
• It involves leading politicians from both countries’ two major parties, government officials, journalists, and business executives, who attend by invitation only;
• It receives little publicity in proportion to the political firepower it attracts, and its attendees strictly observe its non-disclosures rules, as evidenced by the fact there has been very few leaks in its 30-year history;
• A journalist who is a regular AALD attendee didn’t sneer at an Australian journalist imprisoned by China, but at Julian Assange imprisoned by the UK at the demand of the USA—ABC News Breakfast co-presenter Michael Rowland tweeted “A big gold star to Ecuador” when Assange was forcibly removed from Ecuador’s London embassy in 2018, and doubled down by tweeting that people who call Assange a journalist are in “a VERY small camp”;
• Liberal MP Andrew Hastie revealed he was contacted by an intermediary of a self-proclaimed Chinese spy while at the 2019 Australian American Leadership Dialogue event, which led to a sensational 60 Minutes story about a defecting Chinese spy exposing Chinese espionage in Australia, before the Australian Security Intelligence Organisation (ASIO) confirmed the claims were fake.
The AALD is the brainchild of then Coca-Cola Amatil CEO Phil Scanlan, an Australian business executive with an American wife, who also had a background in politics as advisor to leading Liberal Party identity Peter Coleman (a Cold War ideological warrior and the father-in-law of Peter Costello).
In his 2019 book The US Lobby and Australian Defence Policy, author Vince Scappatura reports that Scanlan confessed to a deep-seated fear that following the end of the Cold War, he “would wake up one morning and find that the US has declared independence from Australia”.
Scanlan proposed his idea to US President George H.W. Bush during Bush’s 1991 visit to Australia, and Bush backed it. Scanlan’s goal for AALD was to strengthen the alliance between the two nations, or, more specifically, to strengthen the alliance as the foundation of Australia’s foreign policy, through “relationship management between current and likely future leaders from both countries”, according to the AALD website.
The attendees of the very first dialogue in 1993, held in Washington DC, included future PM Kevin Rudd, journalist Greg Sheridan, Nick Greiner, and then-US Defence Secretary Dick Cheney and his Under Secretary Paul Wolfowitz—the criminal conspirators behind the Iraq war—who the previous year had enunciated the strategic doctrine that America’s post-Cold War foreign and defence policies would focus on stopping the rise of any rival military or economic power, i.e. China. The AALD is committed to supporting this doctrine, by acting as a channel to communicate to Washington decision-makers a supposedly homogeneous Australian desire that America remain “engaged” in the Asia-Pacific.
In a 10 November 2016 ABC 7.30 interview, former Australian PM Paul Keating blamed the AALD for making Australian politicians of both parties subservient to the US alliance:
“We’ve got into this almost sort of crazy position now where the American alliance, instead of simply being a treaty, where the United States is obliged to consult with us in the event of adverse strategic circumstances, it has now taken on a reverential, sacramental quality”, Keating said.
“It’s like a sacrament. I’m not talking about simply the government; I’m talking about some people on the Labor side as well.
“There’s a view, there was a thing called the Australian-American dialogue, which by the way I never attended, which is a sort of a cult thing that’s gone on for years and I don’t know what the Americans put in the drinking water, but whenever the Australians come back, they’re all bowing and scraping and going on.” (Emphasis added.)
What Keating describes goes a long way towards explaining why new PM Anthony Albanese, one of many Labor participants in the AALD, is barely different from his predecessor. Meanwhile, nothing China has been accused of in terms of foreign interference comes close to the influence the AALD has over Australian foreign policy.

Chinese billionaire dissident reveals China’s plan to wipe out US military
Chinese billionaire dissident, Miles Guo says the quiet part out loud, as he describes the CCP’s vaccine plan to conquer the West.
Guo, who lives in exile in New York is the financier of the Chinese Whistleblower Movement, which broke the story about Hunter Biden’s laptop and which publishes the GTV.org and GNews.org websites. He has been correct so far in his assessments of the progress of the CCP’s Unrestricted Warfare campaign against the US.
He says the goal of vaccinating the militaries of the West is to wipe them out so China can take over and once these militaries are vaccinated, the campaign to get everybody vaccinated will end and an “antidote” will be offered that won’t save the lives of the vaccinated but it will stop them from shedding to others.
Miles Guo says:
“What the CCP wants the most is to have the troops get vaccinated. Once they get vaccinated, the US military will collapse and the CCP will triumph.
“After the US troops are vaccinated, I tell you the vaccination against the CCP virus will basically be near the end…Especially when Wall Street, Hollywood celebrities, the White House and the troops are vaccinated, I can assure you there will be no vaccination issue.
“The people implementing the vaccination are soon to be finished. Those who are pushing the vaccination behind the scenes will likely have achieved their goals. Vaccination will no longer be pushed, and the antidote will be certainly offered. The antidote will pop up.
“What is the antidote for? It’s not to heal the damage brought by the vaccines, it’s to prevent you from transmitting the virus instead of a remedy for the vaccines.
“Those who were vaccinated are sentenced to death. The antidote for the vaccines is still in the hands of the CCP. Since the CCP wants you to die, how would they offer the antidote to you?”
China is real time spying on every aspect of Australian life with CCTV – so is ASIO
by Gil May
We need a bit more intelligent in-depth thinking than this video. The bill referred to in this clip is the result of urgent national security requirements — think carefully about the words hereunder.
THIS IS A DRACONIAN BILL, BUT NECESSARY TO PROTECT AUSTRALIA.
You have already been warned of potential terrorist attacks, take them very seriously.
You should know China has fully mapped Australia for imminent invasion, they know more about our country than you do.
HIKVISION Home & Business security systems installed in many areas are owned by the CCP, all films are sent back to China. Sold by Australia Post. Every Chinese business is ex-official of the CCP or they are not permitted to operate.
Every high rise building owned by Chinese is a security beacon and control directional unit.
The new Brisbane electric buses made in China are all likely loaded with spyware that could possibly also detonate simple looking structural materials — they could have been made here in Australia.
The list is endless.
Understand there have been some very serious foiled terrorist attacks, some best kept from the public to prevent copy-cat acts and kept out of the press..
When the head of National Security warns the people, and very conservative and protective men of impeccable credentials like Peter Dutton take the action they have with this legislation — there is a very valid reason and urgent need.
We are under constant computer attack hacking into business and government computers, many attempts made to get into defence, national security areas and airports to crash planes; our system is being tested by criminal elements some supported by Governments, we are very vulnerable because we have never had tough laws given to government before as we have not needed them. Laws like these have been in overseas governments for decades, many since the last war.
Our lax laws are being used against us, the illegal boat people are just a tiny piece that you might understand easier than the complex algorithms and technical silent and invisible attack weapons unseen by the public — that are seriously visible to the defence industry.
At Christmas last year we finally gave the Federal Government authority over state governments on matters of national security – they had never had that authority before, states could enter into dangerous liaison agreements that could not be stopped. Dictator Dan had his Belt & Roads deal with China quickly stopped, others are underway, including a Defence Force investigation into the Darwin Port being controlled by Chinese thanks to the NT Govt.
We are now in a very different world to that of ten years ago, We either have hard laws or we do not survive as we know Australia today. If China wants to attack us there is little we can do without help from other countries UK & US. Sometimes measures for our own good are hard to take, and impossible for the ignorant whose attitude encourages attacks on our country.
UK, Australia and global lawful rebellion against treason and sedition coming soon
Bookmark June 22, 2020 as the day the citizens of 52 Commonwealth countries take back control of their destiny. Form a group and co-ordinate with the UK. No more unlawful government. Government belongs to the people not sheeple.
So far in Australia there are allegedly 5.8 million certifiable sheeple who loaded a laughable phone tracing app; that leaves 19 million thinkers who could be a fighting force. Are you one of them?
What has five eyes and wears fishnet stockings?
from CEC Australia
The Five Eyes* intelligence partners are scurrying for dark hidey-holes. On 24 May US President Donald Trump announced that he has declassified everything related to the Russiagate hoax, so that US Attorney-General William Barr can investigate how the hoax came about.
This is a stunning development for Australia, which for too long has foolishly based its security solely on its relationship with the United States, but which in 2016 miscalculated that Trump wouldn’t get elected, and so participated in the intelligence hoax to derail Trump’s campaign policy of improving relations with Russia. Thanks to that miscalculation, Australia’s intelligence agencies have endangered Australia’s relationship with the USA, and therefore have endangered Australia’s national security, in terms of the way they have always defined it.
The hoax centres on the role of Alexander Downer, in likely setting up Trump campaign official George Papadopoulos to ostensibly reveal Russia’s intention to sabotage Hillary Clinton’s campaign, in a way that implied coordination between the Trump campaign and Russia. In the following Australian Alert Service article from 2017, Downer is revealed to be deeply embedded in MI6 networks that are the driving force behind the Five Eyes spying partnership, and which is determined at all costs to sabotage any chance for improvement in the strategic relationship between the USA and Russia, as well as China.
For background on Downer, read the CEC’s January 2018 article, “What has five eyes and wears fishnet stockings? The Australian link in the British Intelligence operation to sabotage US-Russian cooperation” here.
