The Liberals are after you bank deposits – no cash transactions over $10,000 or go to jail

from CEC, Melbourne

After ramming his $10,000 cash ban law through the House of Representatives last week, Scott Morrison is now trying to pretend he has responded to concerns about his cash ban, by releasing a set of “rules” that exempt many activities from the ban.

(This legislation is yet to clear the senate.Ed)

Shane Wright reported in the 28 October Sydney Morning Herald: “The Morrison government has sought to head off internal and crossbench anger over plans to forbid cash payments of $10,000 or more, outlining a string of exclusions it says will protect those who still want to use notes and cents.

“Rules governing new laws around large cash payments make it clear they will exclude gifts, private transactions such as used car sales and situations where people have no other way to pay but via cash.”

The Liberal party is after your bank deposits. Scott Morrison’s legislation to outlaw cash transactions over $10,000 or go to jail, will see their demise at the next election. However will the Labor Party follow the IMF direction to make us a cashless society?

It is not true that Morrison is softening the law with these rules. They were always planned to be attached to the law, as a ploy to make the ban initially more acceptable.

The problem is that all the rules providing exemptions to the cash ban are in a separate legislative instrument, and not in the bill itself. This means that the Minister can change the rules at any time, without a vote in Parliament. While the Parliament can disallow the Minister’s changes, it has a strict time limit on doing so, which limits the ability of the public to have a say in the changes and gives the Minister the advantage in making changes.

In other words, the rules are not real protections at all, but exemptions that can be temporary, and easily removed to make the ban more draconian.

The bill itself, which does require a parliamentary vote to change, is an absolute ban on all transactions over $10,000.

Even the ‘myths’ are lies

Demonstrating how disingenuous the government is being over this law, Treasury has issued a “Fact Sheet—addressing the myths about the cash payment limit”.

The so-called “myths” listed in the fact sheet have nothing to do with the main objections to the law.

The Government’s “myths” are:

  • Cash cannot be used for everyday transactions.
  • Family members cannot give cash gifts.
  • Private individuals cannot buy or sell second-hand goods using cash.
  • People are required to store money in the bank.
  • People are no longer able to deposit or withdraw cash from their bank account.
  • The Government can amend the Bill for the cash limit without scrutiny by the Senate.

In denying all these claims, the government fails to mention that they are only false because they are exempted under the rules, which can be changed at any time. They are not exempted in the legislation, which requires a Parliamentary vote to change. As independent researcher Melissa Harrison from exposingtheblackeconomyreport.com asked: “Why is the government not being upfront about this?”

The government’s fact sheet doesn’t address the main objections to the law, because the government cannot answer them. They prove the government’s excuses for this law to be false.

The government claims the cash ban is necessary to eliminate the black economy and reduce tax evasion.

In truth, as proven by studies of the global black economy by Leandro Medina and Friedrich Schneider published by the IMF, Australia doesn’t have a serious black economy problem; the black economy we do have is already shrinking without any cash ban, having halved since 1991; and comparable countries with cash restrictions have much bigger black economies.

As for tax evasion, it is false to blame tax evasion on individuals using cash. Real tax evasion is perpetrated on a massive scale by multinational corporations and banks, and ultra-rich individuals, using the Big Four global accounting firms and the global network of offshore tax havens. This is how Netflix can pay less than $500,000 tax in Australia, on revenue of almost a billion dollars. It is especially outrageous that this cash ban was recommended by a former global boss of one of the Big Four accounting firms, KPMG, which is up to its ears in real tax evasion, and that KPMG is already lobbying to reduce the limit from $10,000 to $2,000.

It is now proven that the real reason for the cash ban, which the government doesn’t want to acknowledge, is not a “conspiracy theory”, but is a recommendation from the IMF which can be read in black and white: cash must be restricted to make negative interest rates work. Countries all over the world are either at negative interest rates or close to, and the IMF has recommended cash restrictions to trap people in banks so they are forced to pay the banks to look after their money.

Another reason to trap people in banks is so they cannot escape “bail-in”, which is when deposits are seized to prop up failing banks.

Independent MP Andrew Wilkie cited this evidence, including the need to ban cash to make negative interest rates work, in his speech in Parliament on 24 October opposing the cash ban. He also proved that the government is not interested in really eliminating money laundering, as it has ignored Wilkie’s evidence of money laundering at Crown Casino. Most importantly, Wilkie made the point that the government has all the laws it needs to crack down on the real black economy, it just doesn’t enforce them.

The government is trying to dodge the issue because of the huge backlash it has received against this law, which has sparked a mutiny even within its own Liberal Party ranks. We must keep the heat on!

Liberal plan to outlaw cash a bigger threat than terrorism

KAP Leader and Federal Member for Kennedy Bob Katter has slammed a Federal Government Bill which will control how much cash people are allowed to spend as being a danger to the Australian freedoms; a danger which he thinks is greater than the danger to our lives through a terrorism event being carried out in Australia; which the bill sells as being able to reduce.

Katter warns banning cash transactions will have a worse effect than terrorism. Liberals sneak bill through the House after it had risen

The Federal Government snuck through and tabled The Currency (Restrictions on the Use of Cash) Bill 2019 on Friday afternoon of the last parliamentary sitting while the House had risen and all Members and their staff were returning home.

The bill carries a punishment of significant fines and jail time of up to two years if a person is caught spending or accepting a cash payment over $10,000. If passed, the bill will come into effect from 1 January 2020.

“The danger here to our freedom is greater than the danger to our lives through terrorism,’’ Mr Katter said.

“Clearly there are a thousand reasons why people like to hide a little bit of wealth; and have access to cash.”

Mr Katter quoted George Orwell in his dystopian novel ‘1984’ saying “Big Brother is watching” and that a person’s right to privacy with some of their wealth is one of the most important rights that Australians have.

“I’m told that for every 10 people in China there is one camera watching. Now whether that’s accurate or not, in most police cases that have caught my interest, I notice that the first thing they go to is the security cameras and people have no idea to what degree they are being watched on a daily basis.”

The Federal Government’s key selling point of the bill is better control of the ‘black economy’; arguing that it will reduce money laundering and the purchasing of weapons on the black market, but Mr Katter warned that an increase in going digital will result in an increase in cyber-hacking and that the bill’s passing will open the flood gates on further restriction of freedoms.

“The Government promotes the bill as a measure to combat funded international and homegrown terrorism yet with the ever-rising digital theft and threat of international cyber hacking I wouldn’t be trusting my bank account or the authorities to protect it, nor should they be controlling it.

“The Government will argue that this is the one and only initiative that they will implement to eliminate the black economy however, once the bill is introduced and passed, they will have the flexibility to dictate many more amendments to the law. It will give the police the power to control your cash over $10,000.

“Once the legislation is in place, they have opened the doors to regulate and change as they see fit.

“The assumption that our cash transactions are due to unsavoury activity allows for the prosecution of the potentially innocent, it has always been innocent until proven guilty?

“I’m sure the Government and policing authorities’ intentions are good but the only people allowed to have guns in our society are the people in uniforms.

“So we have lost the right to protect ourselves and now our right to privacy has been taken away with this bill. Are the Government and authorities going to act responsibly? Yes, most of the time. All the time? No.

“All I see here is the undermining of the great principles of Magna Carta in the rule of law. Through insidious increments, ‘The means that is argued justifies the end’.”

Morrison moves to eliminate cash on instructions from IMF

THE Morrison government is attempting to sneak legislation through Parliament to virtually criminalise cash as part of an International Monetary Fund (IMF) drive to bring in negative interest rates, allegedly to “fight recession”.
Negative interest rates mean you pay the bank to hold your money, but cash in hand incurs no such charge.

It means governments will exercise even tighter control over money than they and the central banking system already have.
Draft legislation about to be pushed through Parliament by the Morrison Liberals will outlaw cash payments above $10k under the guise of tax efficiency and combating “the black economy”.

Prime Minister Scott Morrison acting under orders from the IMF moves to eliminate cash

But the Australian lobby group Interests of the People (IOTP) says the real agenda is all about the imposition of the IMF’s extreme global monetary policy in the form of negative interest rates.

“This represents a significant curtailment of civil liberties, and more,” says IOTP.
Australians have less than two weeks to respond and mainstream media appears to have ignored it.

IOTP spokesman John Adams says the Australian Treasury has released draft legislation which was initially announced in the May 2018 Budget by then-Treasurer Scott Morrison.

Nothing was done last year, but the legislation now proposes introduction on January 1, 2020.

“I was skeptical that this ban on (cash) transactions would come in but now that the Coalition has been re-elected, the Coalition with ScoMo and (Treasurer Josh) Frydenberg have decided to push this initiative forward,” Mr Adams said on IOTP’s YouTube channel (“Red Alert: ScoMo declares war on the Australian people”).
Adams says the government is claiming it’s to deal with tax revenue and the black economy but if this was the case, why didn’t they do it a decade ago when the GST was brought in as a way of eliminating the black economy.

“They could have easily introduced certain bans on transactions at that point, but they never did. So why now?
“It’s because not of tax revenue, it’s about interest rates. It’s about the International Monetary Fund. They’ve written a series of technical papers … about how to make negative interest rates work.”
Adams says the IMF wants to make interest rates “deeply negative” e.g. negative 3 to 5 percent, something never done before in human history.

And this would allow the central banks to implement controls on money and people never before implemented in history.
Adams says this will be sold as an initiative to stop the black economy, but in reality it is the first of a series of stages to eliminate cash.
The Treasury announcement came out at 5:12pm on Friday, July 28, in an attempt to limit exposure of it. Mainstream media do not appear to have reported on the plans.
The consultation period ends on August 12th, which points to an attempt by the government to limit exposure of the plans, while allowing them to say “consultation was sought”.

Australia’s overheated housing bubble about to burst

from CEC, Coburg

Sensational information has surfaced that an Australian Treasury delegation travelled to Europe in February for discreet meetings with European countries on how they handled their banking crises.

Former Coalition economics advisor John Adams made the revelation in a 31 March discussion with Martin North posted on their Interests Of The People YouTube channel, entitled “Scandal – Australian Officials Caught In Covert Banking Meetings”.

Adams attributed the information to an unnamed source, who spoke with both him and Martin North.

CEO of the Australian Bankers Association and former Queensland Labor Premier Anna Bligh after sending Qld broke now heads the insidious Australian banking cartel. Economists warn of a bail-in law recently passed in the senate without a quorum, which will allow banks to take your deposits to prop them up

This information emerged following news.com.au on 19 March reporting Adams and North for their explosive analysis that Australia’s plunging property market could trigger a banking crisis that could spread overseas, “Australia could be ‘first domino to fall’ in next GFC”, in which they compared Australia’s housing market and banking system to that of Ireland before its crash in 2008. Adams followed this up with a top-rating appearance on Peter Switzer’s Money Talks program on 25 March to debate establishment economist Chris Joye on “Is Australia facing a house price collapse?”, in which he also made the comparison to the banking crises in Europe.

The Citizens Electoral Council can attest that Treasury has consistently denied the likelihood of an Australian banking crisis, despite the growing number of signs. Treasury’s claim that a banking crisis is “unlikely” is one of its excuses for opposing the need for a Glass-Steagall separation of banks.

So why would a Treasury delegation be holding covert meetings in Europe to consult on how to handle precisely such a crisis?

Don’t tell the passengers the Titanic is sinking!

As noted on the latest episode of the CEC Report, the Australian government has a policy of not telling the truth about the economy. Their logic is they don’t want to “spook” the market, or “talk down the economy”. John Adams has reported that government MPs have asked him not to speak out about the economy.

More to the point, according to Adams, one MP admitted they are anticipating a crisis, but hope it would be triggered by an international financial shock, so the government can have plausible deniability and not have to admit that their domestic economic policies, centred on inflating the biggest housing and debt bubble in Australian history, caused the crash.

This amounts to: “If we don’t tell the passengers that the Titanic is sinking, maybe they won’t blame us.” The regulators are even worse. Their attitude is: “If we don’t find out whether the Titanic is sinking, maybe it will stay afloat”! This is evident in Reserve Bank of Australia (RBA) deputy governor Guy Debelle’s statement in December 2018 that when it comes to assessing Australia’s record debt, “there is little to form a strong conclusion about how much is too much”. It is also evident in the recent revelation by analysts at Deutsche Bank that the Australian Prudential Regulation Authority (APRA), the bank watchdog, has understated mortgage debt by as much as 40 per cent! This is not incompetence from APRA, but a result of its see-no-evil, speak-no-evil approach to regulation, even to the point of ignoring systemic threats. APRA in 2007 suppressed an internal report by its research department that warned lowered mortgage lending standards by banks had created a bubble, in which defaults were rising and were on track to cause a banking crisis and recession. In 2010 APRA went one step further and disbanded its research department.

Bail-in

Two possible explanations for the Treasury meetings in Europe are: 1) a genuine desire to learn from their experience so they can spot a crisis coming and take action to avert it—unlikely; 2) an opportunity to assess the “bail-in” system that is in force across all EU member states, the Bank Recovery and Resolution Directive (BRRD), which authorises financial authorities to contain a future financial crisis by seizing savings deposits to prop up failing banks, so they don’t set off a chain-reaction collapse.

Australia has outdone Communist China with citizen surveillance

The Parliamentary Joint Committee on Intelligence and Security (PJCIS) has commenced a review of the Identity-matching Services Bill 2018 and the Australian Passports Amendment (Identity-matching Services) Bill 2018.The Identity-matching Services Bill 2018 will facilitate the exchange of identity-information between the Commonwealth and State and Territory Governments as agreed by COAG under the Intergovernmental Agreement on Identity Matching Services of October 2017. The Bill will authorise the Department of Home Affairs to collect, use and disclose identification information in order to operate the systems that will support a set of new biometric face-matching services

Former army officer now Liberal member for Canning in WA, Andrew Hastie, is tying up the loose ends in what is probably the most comprehensive citizen surveillance system on Earth. This cross-matching of roadside infared car passenger photos, eye retina and facial recognition records from your drivers licence and passport will be stored in a massive Canberra data base. It seems reciprocal arrangements with overseas law enforcement agencies will allow your personal details to be accessed from almost anywhere in the world. What a prize for the extra-Orwellian police state now called the New World Order?

The Australian Passports Amendment (Identity-matching Services) Bill 2018 will amend the Australian Passports Act 2005 to make Australian travel document data available for the purposes of identity-matching services.The PJCIS Chair, Mr Andrew Hastie MP, said that “It is vital that a nationally-consistent approach to data-sharing is put in place so that law enforcement and national security agencies can use facial images to identify individuals in circumstances where they or others may be under threat”.The Committee intends to report by mid-May 2018.

Enquiries:
Chair, Mr Andrew Hastie MP (Canning, WA) on 08 9534 8044 (Electorate office) or (02) 6277 4223 (Parliament House)

Further information about the inquiry can be accessed via the Committee’s website

The Committee invites written submissions to the inquiry to be received no later than 21 March 2018. Information on how to make a submission is available on the Committee’s website.

Both Bills will support the Commonwealth to meet its obligations under the intergovernmental agreement to deliver fast, secure identity-matching services and improve Australia’s national security, law enforcement, community safety and road safety capabilities.

Editor: It should be noted the Coalition of Australian Governments(state corporations) is not recognised by the Commonwealth Constitution of Australia. COAG’s validity is in doubt. So are its policy agreements between state Premiers whose lawful position is CEO of each corporate state.

This huge social experiment fits in with all other earlier technological surveillance leaps taken by Australian corporate government. This time around the United States will follow our lead to enable the financial oligarchy to complete the enslavement of the people, better known as the sheeple.

This massive information exchange has nothing to do with national security. It is all about people control and eugenics.

Liberals join Labor to let banks screw farmers even more

Liberals join with Labor at the behest of the banks to kill Robbie Katter’s Development Bank bill

LNP VOTE WITH LABOR TO KILL RURAL DEBT REFORM

State Member for Mount Isa Robbie Katter has slammed the LNP for supporting Labor to vote against a real solution to address rural debt.

In a parliamentary session that went into the early hours of Wednesday morning the KAP’s Rural and Regional Adjustment (Development Assistance) Amendment Bill was denied a vote in the House through the blocking of a motion put forward by Robbie Katter.

“The motion was put forward to enable the Parliament to adequately consider and vote on a solution that would’ve seen a new lending mechanism established to address the shortcomings in QRAA’s current activities”

“Each member of the crossbench voted to allow the motion to be heard but it was the major parties who didn’t allow it. It’s unbelievable that they would so blatantly work together to stifle a minor party Bill.”

“With so much public disappointment in partisan politics it’s ironic that the only thing the major parties can agree on is limiting consideration of minor party Bills”

Mr Katter highlighted the amount of consultation and analysis that went into the KAP’s Bill and expressed his disappointment at the behaviour of the major parties.

“The LNP not only supported Labor’s Bill over the KAP alternative, they actively worked to restrict debate and consideration of the KAP Bill”

“The LNP and Government used every excuse in the book to avoid undertaking a difficult reform. They even used banking regulations as an excuse. Do they forget where here to change laws and regulations? If I told my constituents that I wasn’t prepared to undertake legislative reform because of a regulation I wouldn’t deserve to represent them”

“For me, the genesis of this Bill was during the term of the Newman Government, which shows that this has taken years of stakeholder discussions, industry forums, community and local leader’s input,” Mr Katter said.

“Through the Rural Debt and Drought Taskforce that I chaired in this parliament it was clear that the debt problem is massive and that a significant response from the Government was required to address it”

“However what the Parliament has achieved is an ambulance at the bottom of the cliff. A farm debt mediation mechanism doesn’t solve the debt problem it just ensures that when the problem has finally caught up with a producer they can shut their business efficiently”

KAP’s legislation was designed to address not only the cattle industry, but also the viability of our rural towns.

“We need ways of stimulating the economies of the rural towns that rely on agriculture. Rather than using blunt funding programs to create short term employment, why not invest in reconstructing the core industry so longer term organic growth can be delivered”

Mr Katter expressed disappointment at the Government and Opposition’s “hands-off” approach to supporting a key Queensland industry.

“In 2015, I thought the Palaszczuk Government was serious about identifying solutions to address rural debt issues with the formation of a Rural Debt and Drought Taskforce. I was wrong. Just like the Opposition they prefer to leave it to the “market”. This approach has delivered a declining sugar industry, a decimated dairy industry and some of the most expensive gas and electricity in the world.”

“Government’s “intervene” in markets all the time. Between the Clean Energy Finance Corporation and the Australian Renewable Energy Agency there’s about $5 billion worth of low interest loans to help stimulate the industry. However when it comes to supporting agriculture, and particularly family enterprises, the Government doesn’t want to touch it”.

“The rural community right throughout the State should be angry that a significant proposal to benefit people doing it tough and earning a living in regional Queensland would be stymied and watered down by both major parties.”

 

Top pay for Aust Post boss who produces nothing but $1 stamps

14 February 2017: Today KAP Member for Kennedy, Bob Katter delivered a Question without Notice in Question Time to the Minister for Communications about the $5.6m pay packet for the CEO of Australia Post – Ahmed Fahour.

 Mr Katter’s Question raised Mr Fahour’s pay; the cost of postage doubling to $1 a letter; and the $2.8m pre-tax donation it is reported that Australia Post “mutually agreed” to give to the Islamic Museum of Australia, founded by Ahmed Fahour’s brother Moustafa Fahour, when in the same year 900 Australia Post staff were sacked.  Mr Katter asked the Minister for Communications:

Australia Post CEO get $5.9m a year to produce only $1 stamps and make huge donation to Islamic museum

Australia Post CEO Ahmed Fahour gets $5.9m a year to produce only $1 stamps and make a huge donation to Islamic museum

“Australia Post’s CEO pre-corporatisation received $360,000, Ahmed Fahour the current CEO enjoys $5.6 million.

France’s Postal Services CEO receives $1m whilst the United States CEO only $550,000.

Pre Fahour stamps cost 50c; now $1.

Minister, no more Christmas cards. 

In 2014 Australia Post sacked 900 staff. In the same year, Mr Fahour’s Australia Post donated $2.8m to his brother’s Islamic Museum. 

In light of Ahmed’s Australia Post’s generosity, Minister, could I get $30,000 to repair the Catholic Church in Julia Creek?” 

On appointment in 2010 Mr Fahour was paid $2,086,710.  This salary package has almost tripled in 6 years to $5.6m.

Mr Katter has highlighted exorbitant CEO pay as a consequence of privatisation and deregulation; and it is not limited to Australia Post.

“The case was strongly pleaded by Lance Hockridge, to privatise Queensland Rail.  Mr Hockridge was the then CEO and as a senior public servant would have been on around $250,000 a year.  Within a few years after privatisation he was reported to be paying himself a package in excess of $6m a year, for exactly the same job.

“According to the Australian and the Daily Telegraph with one article titled ‘Happy Dragon’, assuming these stories are accurate, it would mean Gail Kelly had received $77m in 8 years, between 2002-2009.   “Happy Dragon indeed, but where is St George?” Mr Katter asked.

“Sol Trujillo for little more than 3.5 years at Telstra was paid $40m.  Ben Butler at the Courier Mail said ‘complaints had a 241% increase in three years during Trujillo’s reign at Telstra’.  Before he arrived at Telstra share prices were $5, when he left they were $3.

“Piketty in his landmark book, stated clearly that the world’s wealth now is going to the managerial class, which effectively sets their own wages.  He makes the point that 100 years ago the world’s wealth was going to the owner class, the Carnegies, the Fords, the Rockefellers.  People who risked their own money and built the motor vehicle industry, the steel industry, the American railways industry.

“It is now going to a class of people that really produce nothing.  Particularly in Australia’s case they simply cut workforce numbers and send the jobs overseas.  Then pay themselves an extra $1m a year for closing down an Australian industry.  “They cry out for foreign investment, which of course means CEOs pay themselves increasingly more.  Until now we reach the point where the only thing we export are jobs.

“Essington Lewis who created the biggest company on earth BHP, an Australian company, when he died he had an estate of $1.7m.  In today’s terms an estate worth a measly $2.4m, which would not buy you a decent home in Sydney today.

“Essington Lewis, Les Thiess (coal), Lang Hancock (iron ore), Laurence Hartnett (motor vehicles) all died with very little money. Their riches were in another treasure chest which, please god, they are enjoying now.

“Their riches were what they gave to their fellow Australians.  That was how those men measured their wealth”, Mr Katter said.

Katter to boot out foreign gambling agencies

Yesterday in Federal Parliament of Australia, KAP Member for Kennedy Bob Katter moved that majority foreign owned interactive gambling agencies be barred from operating in Australia.

Mr Katter moved an amendment to the Interactive Gambling Amendment Bill 2016 that any company that is majority foreign owned is not eligible for registration as a gambling agency in Australia.

Mr Katter said “I voted by myself on the amendment. At the present moment with gambling in Australia, the money is going overseas. I lived in an era where every single dollar (except if you went to a racecourse) — every single cent went into health services for the people. Now most of it is going overseas.

“If the proposition was put to people, do you want the money to go overseas or do you want it to go into health services for Australians, or to help our struggling retirees, or our single mothers trying to make ends meet with three children? I think 80 or 90 per cent of Australians would vote with me, yet I am regarded as the minority.”

The Bill Amendment is as follows:

Interactive Gambling Amendment Bill 2016

23B At the end of section 5

Add:

(4) Despite subsection (3), a gambling service covered by subsection (1) is a prohibited interactive gambling service if the service is provided by a person who is:

(a) an individual not resident in Australia; or

(b) a corporation that is majority foreign-owned.

[majority foreign-owned providers]

 

Letter to Turnbull from senior law researcher says Governor General not legitimately employed

Dear Prime Minister,

Writing to you appears to be a waste of time, but nonetheless I think you should listen to what I am about to tell you. In 1965 without a referendum as prescribed by S 128 Constitution the Parliament of the Commonwealth introduced Decimal Currency. In 1966 without a referendum courts of Judicature were abolished in Bankruptcy jurisdiction and Star Chambers introduced at the option of a Judge. ( S 30 (3) Bankruptcy Act 1966. One David John Walter of Herberton Queensland has been made Bankrupt in one of these Star Chambers probably by a Registrar. He says he cannot be made bankrupt for a Costs Order expressed in Australian Dollars. S 3 Australian Constitution, prescribes the Salary of the Governor General SHALL by paid in pounds.

Prime Minister Malcolm Turnbull and wife Lucy, arrive at Kinselas to enjoy the Sydney mardi gras parade.

Picture: Kristi Miller, Source:News Corp Australia

Since the Salary of the Governor General has not been paid in Pounds, since 1966, he argues that the Governor General has not been legitimately employed, and the whole system of Government has become corrupted by this error. He argues that NO Legislation since 1966 has been legitimately approved by any Governor General because none of them have been paid in legitimate currency. Notwithstanding that, the fraud industry in Bankruptcy must be addressed. I have been pushing for this since 1993, and made a vexatious litigant for continuing to do so. Telling the truth is vexatious to some.

David John Walter tried to have the Federal Court of Australia Judicially Review the possession order against him issued by a Star Chamber in Queensland. A State Star Chamber and the Federal Court of Australia says they have no jurisdiction to do so. You should get an Officer of the Australian Federal Police to attend the Brisbane Registry of the Federal Court of Australia and point out to them that S 39B 1A (b) Judiciary Act 1903 written in the language of the Law, English, gives them original jurisdiction to entertain this Appeal under S 2 Judiciary Act 1903. The definition of appeal is also written in English.

By claiming No Jurisdiction the Federal Court of Australia has offended S 43 Crimes Act 1914, ( Cth). A measure introduced in 1914 and tested in the High Court in 1915, in Kidman V The King, to guarantee the integrity of courts of Judicature. This is what the Australian Federal Police Officer should point out and advise that this law is still in force, and has been increased to impose ten years jail on an offender. I am aware that the fertiliser will hit the ventilator over this. However I would advise a referendum to normalise the currency before embarking on the adventure of a Double Dissolution. Due to this endemic corruption I am dependent on the Age Pension. I should be a very wealthy man. Along with millions of others. I am very frightened of its ramifications, but no one should have to endure what I and David John Walter have had to put up with.

Kind regards

Venezuela is out of food: here’s what an economic collapse really looks like

February 14, 2016

Socialist Government takes crops from farmers at whatever price it likes

When legal tender (cash) is abolished in Australia, the population will be completely at the mercy of ruling political party junta of the day

Australia on its present course of so-called treaties like the TPP and the China Free Trade agreement will in 10 years finish up just like these poor venezuelan people

 

By Daisy Luther Activist Post

Venezuela is out of food

After several years of long lines, rationing, and shortages, the socialist country does not have enough food to feed its population, and the opposition government has declared a “nutritional emergency.” This is just the most recent nail in the beleaguered country’s slow, painful economic collapse.

Many people expect an economic collapse to be shocking, instant, and dramatic but, really, it’s far more gradual than that. It looks like empty shelves, long lines, desperate government officials trying to cover their tushes, and hungry people. For the past two years, I’ve been following the situation in Venezuela as each shocking event has unfolded. Americans who feel that our country would be better served by a socialist government would be wise to take note of this timeline of the collapse.

A quick review: Why Venezuela Is Out of Food

In 2013, many began to suspect that the outlook for Venezuela was grim when prepping became illegal. The Attorney General of Venezuela, Luisa Ortega Díaz, called on prosecutors to target people who are “hoarding” basic staples with serious sanctions.

Shortly thereafter, grocery stores instituted a fingerprint registry to purchase food and supplies. Families had to register and were allotted a certain amount of supplies to prevent “hoarding.”

Then, just over a year ago, it became even more apparent that the country was falling when long lines for basic necessities such as laundry soap, diapers, and food became the norm rather than the exception. Thousands of people were standing in line for 5-6 hours in the hopes that they would be able to purchase a few much-needed items.

Shortly after the story broke to the rest of the world, the propaganda machine shifted into high gear. As the government began to ration electricity, it was announced that this was not due to economic reasons at all, but instead was a measure of their great concern for the environment.

As the situation continued to devolve, farmers in Venezuela were forced to hand over their crops last summer. They assumed control of essential goods like food, and began putting retail outlets out of business. Then, once they had control of the sales outlets, they began forcing farmers and food manufacturers to sell anywhere from 30-100% of their products to the state at the price the state opted to pay, as opposed to stores and supermarkets.

But that wasn’t enough to keep the population fed. (Isn’t it astonishing how much less motivated people are to produce food and supplies when they are no longer allowed to benefit from their hard work? Historically, collectivism and farming have never gone successfully hand in hand.) This January, the government told citizens that they would need to produce their own food. The Ministry of Urban Farming was created to oversee this. While self-reliance sounds great, it isn’t so great in Venezuela. Just so the urban farmers don’t get too self-reliant, a registry of the crops and livestock will be required. (And obviously, they’ve already proven that they have no issue forcing farmers to hand over what they’ve produced.)

Now, it looks like all of the socialist measures and forced food production haven’t been enough to keep the people of Venezuela fed. The country is in so much trouble now that it isn’t possible to cover it up with propaganda.

According to Breitbart.com, lawmakers have learned nothing.

Socialist legislators are hoping to manipulate the initiative in the other direction, and use it to expand government control of private food enterprises. Legislator Héctor Rodríguez has insisted that the economic emergency “does absolutely nothing,” and the government should impose itself on private enterprises. Another socialist legislator, Ricardo Molina, is calling for the government to expropriate Polar, Venezuela’s largest private food corporation: “we have to intervene on private sector enterprises.”

Venezuela previously forced a Polar food distribution center in Caracas to shut down in July, putting 12,000 tons of food, six million liters of soft drinks, and 2,000 jobs at risk.

And now, the announcement of the “nutritional emergency” makes it official. Venezuela is out of food, and it’s only a matter of time before Venezuelans are quite literally starving due to a long series of terrible decisions by their leaders.

Australian Jewish billionaire Frank Lowy conceals $US68 million from tax office

Letters to Editor

The Zionist Jews for years are rumoured to have their own very well equipped Jew army in Sydney and Melbourne. They have got millions of dollars worth of the best weaponry. They hold their clandestine meetings in a Frank Lowy complex ( Westfield Centres ). Successive Australian Federal Governments have allowed them ( the Lowys ) to control the substantial Temora Air force facility. The Temora locals think it’s great – it brings jobs and tourism. They are ready to move and takeover. They’re ready to pounce, like they did when they took over and massacred 100s of thousands of simple living Palestinians in their own country, like they did when the New York Jew funded Jews took over Russia in THEIR ” revolution” and then proceeded to massacre 66 million Christians over the next 38 years. They have their plants at the top in every government department ( ASIO, ASIS, Signals, Police forces, Australian defence forces, every conceivable government funded body and major company ). They control government policy through bodies such as the Lowy Institute and ALL the other Jew funded institutes and all their politician bribes. Bob Hawke Jew funded Rhodes ” scholar “, Tony Abbott Jew funded Rhodes ” scholar “, Malcolm Turnbull – Jew, Josh Frudenstien – Jew and you wonder why Australia has been sold out. For the whole of my 72 years of life Australia has been sold out by these traitor arseh—s. Most of them lawyers and do they know how to rob Australians blind.

The Australian Broadcasting Commission’s head office in Sydney has been run by the Jewish faction for three decades: Editor

When a US Senate committee alleged Frank Lowy, 84, concealed $US68 million from the Australian Tax Office in Liechtenstein, Lowy said he had given the money to Israeli charities and insisted he had met all his tax obligations. As an Australian parliamentary committee prepares to question the Tax Commissioner this week, Middle East Correspondent Jason Koutsoukis explores Lowy’s strong links with Israel.

Commonwealth Bank’s Brendan French. Is he Australia’s biggest bank fraudster?

by Shane Dowling

The Commonwealth Bank of Australia’s senior executive Brendan French, who is one of Australia’s biggest fraudsters, recently won a defamation case against a whistleblower. This is quite amazing given that it is French’s role at the Commonwealth Bank to cover-up multi-million-dollar fraud and theft by Commonwealth Bank staff and others and Brendan French should be […]
