Letter to the Editor
Today I was told by a friend that there could be some hassle with the banks and there was the chance of a bail-in. As I was in Busselton town when she rang on my mobile, I went to Westpac where I have an account and said to the teller I wanted to draw out $20,000 in cash but if they didn’t have that much, could I please order it and pick up next week.The teller said because of all the scams, she would have to ask me some questions, to which I said OK. She then asked me what I wanted the money for and I said why would you want to know that?
She said because they had lost 6 million dollars replacing scam money from customers and I said well I’m not sending it to an online lover in Africa. She then asked if I was buying a washing machine or some appliance or a car etc and did I have the receipt to show her, and she would give me the cash.
I said I’m not buying anything so there are no receipts, I just want to draw out the money which is my money and my business. She said she would have to go and get the Manager so after about 5 mins back they came – and the Manager showed me a tick list of Q I had to answer. So we start the process again! So I say I just want the money and I’m not buying anything and jokingly said I’m putting it under my bed. The Manager then suggested we go into an office as all this talking had taken place outside the teller’s booth. Once in the office with the door shut, she proceeded to tell me about all the scammers and how a lady had pulled out cash and bought a dodgy caravan etc and I said I am not buying anything, I am not sending the money to anybody, I am putting it in a friend’s business safe. This still wasn’t a right answer to release my cash.
She said I could have a bank cheque and I said no, I wanted the cash. She said I couldn’t have it because of their protocol in place to safeguard their customers, so I said well I’m happy to sign an affidavit to say I won’t come looking for a refund if the money has an accident somewhere. So she then said I would have to talk to one of the guys in the Scammers department and got him on the phone. She spoke to him first and he then asked her for my Medicare Card. Without thinking to say no, I handed it over and she wrote the number down and handed it back. As she had already had my drivers licence, don’t know why they wanted the Medicare card and was cross with myself for refusing to give it as was nothing to do with me wanting to draw money out!!
So we went through the whole thing again and me saying the cash was going in a friend’s business safe wasn’t good enough so in the end I told him what my friend had said about the banks being broke and there could be a bail in so I was playing safe in case this happened. At that he said the banks have plenty of money and asked to be put back to the Manager. They spoke for a few minutes and I said well just give me $5000 then in cash. He apparently said no to her re this, she hung up and said I could take $1000 out from the ATM, but that was all. So I said that means I have to come up here every day for 5 days to get $1000 out each day because you won’t now even give me a lump sum of $5000 cash? (and I live 11kms out of town) She said yes that’s right.
So I got quite vocal and said how disgusting it was and this was Australia for heaven’s sake and it was my money and they had no right to refuse to give it to me. So I said as far as I am concerned, the bank can stick its protocol up its arse and I will close my whole account and take out all the money in it and I want it in 2 cheques and I will be taking this matter further. The Manager typed all my complaints which was sent to HO Complaints Dept – she said they wouldn’t be contacting me but they held round table conferences re all the complaints and discussed how they could improve. We then moved to the teller and she organised my 2 cheques which I then deposited in 2 different banks where I have accounts.
I am sending this around as a warning to others. Maybe I played it wrong and should have just gone in and withdrawn $5000 today and done it again 3 times next week so that I flew under their radar.

We have received a torrent of similar complaints since we published the first story about Westpac. Perhaps the bank has started to remove cash from circulation before the Liberal/Labor coalition makes it compulsory?
Letter to the Editor
Earlier this evening I did an online payment of five k to someone I know in australia. Westpac decided it was a scam and called me, left a message and asked to call them back as the payment had been suspended. After waiting twenty minutes online I answered all their security questions, assured them the payment was gong to someone I know and there were no problems as far as I was concerned. What is the money for she asked? That’s none of your business I replied. It’s my money and how I choose to spend it is my business no one else’s. It went down hill from there fairly quickly…she refused to put the payment through and said any further payments would just bounce back into my account. I have now been suspended from accessing my account online. A couple of other women have said recently that they have been questioned by branch staff when withdrawing cash as to what it was for and not being allowed access without giving a reason. Has anyone else had this problem…is it a certain demographic they are targeting…what is going on?
Commonwealth Bank, ANZ, Westpac, St George, Bank of Melbourne, Macquarie Bank and Bank SA. customers have been hit several times by a nationwide outage, with widespread reports of people being unable to pay for shopping or access accounts.
CommBank, Australia’s largest, confirmed the outage in a social media post on Tuesday morning.
Overseas banks have reported similar problems over the past few months which media commentator Charlie Ward says is testing for the switch across to the new, global Nesara financial system.
The outages also hit airline Virgin Australia and Australia Post and a broad swathe of other companies.
“Virgin Australia was one of many organisations to experience an outage with the Akamai content delivery system today,” Virgin said.
“We are working with them to ensure that necessary measures are taken to prevent these outages from reoccurring.”
Akamai is a US-based global content delivery network or “edge platform”, cybersecurity and cloud service provider.
ANZ acknowledged a similar issue and said “at this stage we do not have an ETA for a fix, please try logging on after an hour”.
Customers reported being unable to use internet banking, mobile banking, as well as some ATMs and cards, from about 2.10pm, according to Down Detector.
Shortly after 3pm (AEST), Commonwealth Bank tweeted that it was aware some customers were “experiencing difficulties accessing our services and we’re urgently investigating”.
“We apologise and thanks for your patience, we’ll provide an update soon,” it said.

Anatomy of the Plandemic International Crime Scene
By: The Armchair Covid Crime Investigator
What follows is the shockingly intentional step-by-step criminal conspiratorial plot to commit global genocide and seriously debilitate populations around the globe via various types of COVID bioweapons and the ensuing Covid Super Vaccination Agenda.
Given the sheer depth and breadth of this worldwide scheme to deliberately kill and/or injure as many human beings as possible, it’s clear that every major government, globalist institution, Fortune 1000 corporation and nongovernmental organization (especially healthcare), which is controlled by the New World Order globalist cabal, had to have had foreknowledge of this highly complex criminal scheme. Therefore, each remains an unindicted co-conspirator in the greatest crime spree ever to be perpetrated against the entire human race.
Now, here’s what these inconceivably brazen, desperate and reckless Covid criminals meticulously planned out in advance with great attention to the malevolent details……………
Role Reversal: How the US Became the USSR
Paul Craig Roberts
“…………….Whatever serves the tiny clique that rules America is legal; whatever exposes the criminals is illegal.
That’s all there is to it”.
“There is but one solution. The root cause of this cancer must be extracted. This would be the Jewish Mafia. The objectives of the Jewish Mafia include both Zionist and non-Zionist elements. Their main goal is to extract all wealth from every nation and seize complete control of the entire world. Until Americans come to acknowledge the role of the Jewish Mafia in the subversion of their nation, they will remain enslaved indefinitely. The same applies to Canada, Australia and all of Europe.”
Exterminating the Goyim is Basis of the Cabala (have another good think about all those COVID ‘vaccines’ invented by Jewish scientists)

On Tuesday 13 April Christine Holgate will speak publicly for the first time, at a hearing of the Senate inquiry into her removal. For a reminder of what is at stake, watch this short clip of Christine Holgate in 2018 announcing the banking deal with CBA that saved community post offices, jobs, and the regional communities that rely on post offices for banking services. Without this deal…
Banks forced Liberals to sack Christine Holgate, best ever Post Office CEO – Katter calls for reinstatement
KAP Federal Member for Kennedy Bob Katter, a staunch supporter of former Australia Post CEO Christine Holgate since her unethical dismissal last year will move in the Federal Government a motion to reinstate her as CEO.
He praised her integrity and perseverance in defending her decision to purchase Cartier watches as a reward for key employees securing long-term, profitable banking services which ensured the longevity of Australia Post branches around the country.
“The most successful and honourable businessmen I have ever had the pleasure of being a friend of, Marcus Blackmore, the great innovator in medicinal supplements had Christine for a long period as his Chief of Staff and he swears by her integrity and her competence,” he said.
“I cannot say how much I admire a person that cut her salary in her job down to that of a departmental head in a state government department. This is one of the largest operations in the country and she is the only CEO in Australian history that I can think of that reduced her salary down a fraction of what it had been under her predecessor.
“It is the first time that post offices have spoken positively about their CEOs of Australia Post and she gave them hope for the future. She had worked with owner/operator pharmacies which are owner/operated by law (albeit with corporate oversighting) and she was determined to keep the owner/operator model – clearly the most successful model which guaranteed local ownership throughout the suburbs and regional towns of Australia.
“Quite frankly she should had been sacked if she hadn’t given these star-performing, hardworking employees a bit of reward for their efforts.”
Mr Katter said, “Call me paranoid but I just can’t get it out of my head that the banking agencies were working so well that the banks were getting toey that there might be another powerful banking player in Australia. The last thing they want is any further competition, particularly from an organisation that has branches in every suburb and town in Australia, places they have long since abandoned.
“Christine has extraordinary capabilities – you don’t run a multi-billion-dollar corporation like Blackmores if you are a fool – was in her vary nature, threatening on the banking front. And a rabid free market government in Canberra whether LNP or ALP except for Rudd, I can’t name one of them that is ideologically bound to a free market mentality, has made continuous efforts to prioritise one of the last assets the Australian people own. Everything has been sold off with the vast bulk in the hands of foreigners.
“Christine did not strike me that she would agree to sell off the magical asset of Australia Post and/or bow to the whims and interests of the banks whose record was so bad that each of the banks did a huge backflip and apologised for their conduct.
“Well now we know the truth. We know now we have been misled and we know now who has misled us.
“We will get a vote in the Parliament and she will be reinstated. And if the Government doesn’t do that, then the way it is headed at the present moment, it will just be another nail in their coffin.”
Deflecting blame, Prime Minister Scott Morrison said today her dismissal is now the subject of a senate inquiry.
by staff writers
Political parties have usurped Constitutional government in Australia over at least the past four decades replacing it with corporate governance by removing the Crown and replacing it with the Queen of Australia.
There is no such lawful entity. Labor Prime Minister Gough Whitlam in 1972 started the rot and successive Prime Ministers both Labor and Liberal completed the treachery without referendum.
More and more Australians have discovered what has gone down around them aided and abetted by an equally treacherous media and the Bar Association incorporating the Inns of Court and the Law Association with its lawyer members.
Law faculties at universities staffed by socialist-left professors over many years have indoctrinated literally thousands of graduates to believe Parliaments are supreme and there is no recourse for litigants who have been reamed by this asset-stripping, banking industry- orientated court system developed by the party duopoly.
So much so that the Australian Banking Association employed as CEO former Queensland Labor Premier Anna Bligh who qualified for the position by borrowing $60 billion when Premier from Rothschild Bank and mortgaging the assets of the state for collateral.
Queensland’s system of law has degenerated into an asset-stripping operation for the banks, attested by the Labor-appointed judge in the recent taxi industry claim for compensation for now worthless taxi licences after the Labor gang allowed Uber ride sharing to jump the queue.
The Supreme Court judge gave Uber a free ride to the bank while taxi operators lost their mortgaged homes and suicided at a similar rate to cattle producers during the Labor-induced live cattle export embargo.
In Queensland the party duopoly has ensured there is no lawful remedy.
But there’s more….
Litigants are advised to check out the newly formed Common Law Courts of Queensland where proper justice will be served in deference to the unlawful so-called courts of Queensland Inc.
Australian political party members of parliament should be mindful of what is soon to transpire in the United States affecting the traitors of Constitutional government. Corporate nemesis is coming to Australia……….
Eat your heart out Peter Beattie.
While ever the LNP/ALP duopoly which kowtows to China stays in power Australia will flounder until drowned
AS Australia’s biggest anti-free trade advocate, Bob Katter, Federal Member for Kennedy has weighed in on the escalating trade tensions with China, slamming successive government free trade policies and warning that unless Australia breaks the “iron ball of bureaucracy around our ankles we will continue to be a begging bowl of Asia” with cattle, cotton, barley, wine, fruit and vegetables and coal.
Mr Katter said it was unsurprising that China was showing no signs of cutting down Australia’s trade deals with the top earning commodities.
“If you take away China as a customer, you’ve lost 30 per cent of the nation’s income, and the criminals that allowed this to happen in the Parliaments of Australia by running around with their free trade, black-dogging the all-powerful Chinese, should be shot.
“For years they were running around saying that free trade would make Australia become the “food bowl of Asia” but we are now the begging bowl of Asia, just look at our fruit and vegetables where Australia is now a net importer.
“The country is now reaping the whirlwind that feeds the greedy snivelling sycophantic slave masters, the snake like Sydney city suits living in their pleasure domes.”
Mr Katter said the only response to Beijing’s power plays was to focus on developing Australia’s self-sufficiency particularly on essential products used every day which are currently produced in China, like plastic.
“Self-sufficiency in a post-Covid world should be the catch cry and I cannot see one single item undertaking by desperate Dan the dictator, or “do what I say” Palaszczuk, the NSW Premier seems to be too busy on extra-curricular activities and while I’d like to very much to think that Josh Frydenberg would be on board, I’m afraid Josh’s background inhibits him from building this nation.
“The problem with letting business build Australia as the Treasurer believes is that businesses are carrying more bureaucracy leg iron than my burdened convict forebears ever had to carry and it is the banks, sorry the “mortgage lenders”, that have led us to this.
“The long term benefit for Australia is to produce in our country sophisticated industrial goods and the industrial by-products of agriculture such as ethanol which opens the way to plastics manufacturing. Fancy importing all your plastic products (your Coca Cola bottles etcetera) from overseas when we could be doing it here.
“Countries like China just print the money to build a development or project; state-of-the-art economies of scale and it is not cheap labour anymore given their wages are over 50 per cent of that of Americas.
“We have the iron ball of bureaucracy around our ankles and we have banks that want to know the value of our house when we want to build a Bradfield Scheme. And the mortgage lender banks are only interested in how much they can sell a half built dam or factory for. They look to the mortgage value rather than the project.
“Australians must throw out their current political and monetary regime and replace it with an aggressive build and own our nation attitude which is the driver in America, China, Europe and Brazil.
“Instead, we are still floundering around in the fairy floss of free marketism which is an explanation and admission that we know absolutely nothing about anything and we don’t have to do anything because it will all be done for us.”
Totally compromised banker’s man PM Scott Morrison, rushes in a ban on cash that has nothing whatsoever to do with alleged Covid 19 infected banknotes or tax evasion. The ABC and MSM are supporting the NWO takeover with their fake news
Federal Member for Kennedy, Bob Katter, has expressed his disgust on the back of the announcement that some inner-city supermarkets will no longer be accepting cash.
“A proposal by one of the supermarket chains to go cashless?” Mr Katter said in disbelief when first confronted with the news.
“Once cash vanishes then you become the puppet of the banks,” said Mr Katter.
“A cashless society means the only way you can buy anything is if the bank approves it and four banks encompass 90% of Australia’s transactions.”
“If we Australians are stupid enough to trust 4 giant corporations and their puppets, the Federal Government, then we are really stupid people.”
“Australian currency is owned by the people, not the banks.”
Mr Katter’s tirade follows a major supermarket informing the public that, from yesterday, they would no longer be accepting cash payments at six more inner city stores in Melbourne and Sydney. This is on top of the six stores that began the trial in July this year.
“The concentration of power here is really scary,” Mr Katter added.
“The giant supermarket chains have destroyed owner operator businesses across Australia.”
“This is the first step onto a slippery slope, and it will be absolutely disastrous, at a time when people are trying to desperately to get their money out of the banks and financial institutions.”
“I will lead the first demonstration in the first store that they attempt to do it!”
Cairnsnews advises voters in the upcoming Queensland election on October 31 to vote for a KAP candidate or you will go down with the Admiralty law ship. If valid, corporation law would prosecute Queensland Inc for trading while insolvent. The state is hopelessly bankrupt yet the knucklehead Premier and the equally silly Opposition Leader, bereft of any intelligence have taken election pork-barreling to such lofty heights the Reserve Bank will have to print money non-stop for the next two years.
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.

Best video of the year explaining the World Economic Forum’s plan to remove Trump and force a world reset, installing the New World Order, supported by Australian bankers’ man PM Morrison and the LNP/ALP/Greens triumvirate:
by Alexandra Bruce
I’ve been pleasantly surprised to discover that one of the most consistently hard-hitting and incisive sources of news and analysis on YouTube is Remnant TV, a channel published by The Remnant, a St. Paul, Minnesota-based Catholic newspaper that bills itself as the “Oldest traditional Catholic newspaper in the world” and is strongly critical of Pope Francis and of all the Globalist policies currently endorsed by the Catholic Church.
This eye-opening documentary published 3 weeks ago on August 6th, hosted by The Remnant Editor, Michael Matt explores what’s really going on with the global pandemic.
He takes us to Switzerland—to the World Economic Forum—where the movers and shakers of the world meet in Davos to discuss the implementation of UN Sustainable Development Goals in order to fundamentally “transform” every aspect of life as we know it.
They want a New World Order and the only thing standing in their way, at the moment is Donald Trump.
