Federal Member for Kennedy, Bob Katter has pleaded with North Queensland MPs and candidates (state and federal) to support an inquiry by the Parliamentary Joint Committee on Intelligence and Security into foreign influence at Australian universities, following the case of UQ student Drew Pavlou who was suspended after he was physically attacked during a pro-Hong Kong democracy rally on campus.
The KAP MP said the influence of the Chinese Communist Party went much further than the grounds of St Lucia. The agreement that James Cook University (JCU) recently signed with Xi’an University of Technology, for joint data science and engineering research projects as well as student and staff exchanges, must be properly scrutinised and investigated.
“I call upon the LNP Member for Herbert to support this Inquiry as he, along with myself, represents the people of the fortress city of Townsville,” he said.
“The Japanese had detailed photographs of every aspect of Pearl Harbour before that conflict kicked off. We now could have JCU, situated right beside some of the most intimate and sensitive parts of the Australian Defence Force’s communications infrastructure, working collaboratively with People’s Liberation Army scientists or on joint research projects in data science – and the People’s Liberation Army is a world leader in orchestrating cyber attacks on countries around the world, including Australia.
“The local brothels could pick up a few tips from these little, self-serving, visa-shop leeches at the universities. Mind you, in the brothels they don’t sell their souls, they only sell their bodies.”
Mr Katter has received support from Dawson MP, George Christensen, who will second the motion for the Federal Parliamentary Inquiry into foreign influence in Australian Universities.
“It is great to see Australians who are prepared to stand up for what they know is right,” he said.
“Democracy, freedom of speech and academic integrity are values this nation was founded on.”
Mr Katter said JCU had a number of questions to answer over the agreement made with Xi’an University in May.
“Australia’s leading defence and strategy think tank, the Australian Strategic Policy Institute, in 2018 produced a report on the People’s Liberation Army’s (PLA) expansion of its research collaboration with universities outside China,” he said.
“It said that since 2007 the PLA has sponsored more than 2500 military scientists and engineers to study abroad and develop relationships with researchers and universities. The report estimates that of that number 300 have been sent to Australia.
“For the PLA, the objective is to pick flowers in foreign lands to make honey in Australia. The report says that Australia was in the top five countries engaged in research collaboration with the PLA in 2017.
“JCU has made an agreement with the Xi’an University to be involved in a new International Engineering College Shaanxi province. JCU and Xi’an University staff and students studying engineering and data science will collaborate with each other and be involved in joint research projects. The PLA is heavily involved in China’s global cyber hacking programme and has an interest in data science and engineering.
“JCU must explain what it will do to make sure that no student involved in these arrangements is a member of or sponsored by the People’s Liberation Army. It also must say if it will seek advice from Australia’s security agencies about all students and academics nominated by Xi’an University to be involved in any joint research projects. In addition, the University needs to tell us what it will do to prevent the theft of intellectual property.”

VICTORIA’S political crisis will deepen, despite Premier aka comrade Dan Andrews’ attempts to exploit a so-called second wave in COVID19 infections, to deflect attention from it and buy time.
In addition to the scandal involving the foul, crooked Labor branch stacker and former Local Government Minister Adam Somyurek and two other ministerial resignations, the state has been caught in two massive fraud allegations involving the Dandenong City Council and the Department of Health and Human Services and the brazenly illegal “withdrawal” of taxi business licences in 2017.
Dandenong council, in the bullying manner typical of the bureaucratic, corporate monstrosities called “local government”, is accused of fraudulently shutting down a catering business named I Cook Foods 18 months ago.
The privately-owned family business just happened to be serious competition for another catering company, Community Catering, in which Dandenong council and others have financial stakes. This company was in financial difficulty and is being bought by the State Government.
Meanwhile taxi operators who were shafted by this same out-of-control China client state called Victoria, are now battling in the courts in order to get some justice after Andrews and company simply cancelled 5000 “pepetual licences” at midnight on October 9, 2017. So-called “transitional payments” of totally inadequate amounts, were offered with the new legislation.
The move smoothed the path for the entry of Silicon Valley tech giant Uber to the Australian market and no doubt paid off handsomely to Victorian Labor Party coffers.
One former taxi operator told Cairns News the government simply removed the word “perpetual” from the redrafted legislation and then let Uber into a now largely unregulated market.
“They reduced the price of the plates to zero. My business, superannuation, income and inheritance for my children is all gone.
“Licences used to cost hundreds of thousands of dollars per set of plates. That’s where the wealth was in the industry. But now people have a debt on something that no longer exists.”
Dandenong Council and Red Dan hand-in-hand for dollars
Comrade Dan’s crooked corporate state also works hand in hand with the council corporations.
I Cook Foods supplies packaged food for nursing homes, Meals on Wheels and hospitals, but was temporarily shut down by Dandenong council and the Victorian Department of Health and Human Services (DHHS). They used the death of an elderly woman initially attributed to listeria and linked it to I Cook Foods.
Ian Cook’s factory was later cleared of having contamination and documents revealed council officers knew within days of the closure that the listeria levels at the business were safe.
However, the council raised other “food safety” concerns, including a slug being found in the kitchen, and laid 96 food safety charges against Mr Cook and his company.
The closure resulted in 41 people losing their jobs and basically destroyed a $25 million business. It is still managing to survive on limited business.
A council health inspector is now accused of planting the slug on the property after video footage was reviewed.
Luckily for Ian Cook, his matter has now been widely publicized and was the subject of a parliamentary hearing this month (June).
Ian has also been given access to a commercial law process by a group of Geelong activists, which has enabled him to sidestep the courts and expensive legal obstruction by council solicitors.
He has also gained the voluntary help of two retired Victorian cops who have been supplied with extensive evidence of the misconduct.
It is hoped prosecutions may be undertaken in the near future.
(Natural News) Many people are unaware of it, but communist China already has a foothold in the United States. The fields of solar energy farms that blanket much of the American southwest are actually controlled and run by the Chinese military, in many cases, and one day these “sleeper cells” are going to awaken and carry out the rest of the takeover, reports a prominent analyst.
What takeover, you might be asking? The one that is right now being ratcheted up with the manufactured public outrage over George Floyd. According to Dave Hodges of The Common Sense Show, the next phase of China’s “Red Dawn” invasion of our country involves escalating the number of domestic terrorist acts in order to destabilize the country and pave the way for the final solution.
Likening the current situation to the infamous TET Offensive that was unleashed by the Viet Cong and the North Vietnamese Army back in 1968, the goal right now is to further deunify and splinter America to the point that a divide-and-conquer plan of attack can be quickly executed, bringing our country to its knees.
“The Floyd murder has provided the Deep State an excuse to perpetrate rioting across America with the intent of promoting a helter-skelter race war designed to destabilize the country,” Hodges writes about the slash-and-burn approach currently being used to weaken the U.S.
“These other groups will play a role in this phased attack upon America,” he adds. “The real enemy of America is communist China. And the main force behind the CHICOMS’ attack upon America will prove to be ISIS.”
Listen below to The Health Ranger Report as Mike Adams, the Health Ranger, talks about what he describes as the “chaos agenda,” and how it will be used to further strip Americans of their Second Amendment rights:
Is China on the verge of attacking America with military force?
Concerning America’s solar farms, China’s occupation of many of these facilities has created a landing zone, so to speak, where Chinese military men and women can quietly group together and plot the next step while posing as “security.” And most Americans are none the wiser as to what is transpiring right under their noses.
Hodges believes that America will soon be under direct military attack by communist China, meaning bullets and bombs targeted at American aircraft, both military and civilian. And the reason he thinks this is because of these solar farms, which are directly tied to the communist Chinese military.
“The solar energy deals that were put into place by Senator Harry Reid were done in conjunction with Chinese energy companies run by the Chinese military,” Hodges explains. “All personnel manning these planned plants would be affiliated with the Chinese military.”
“This includes the inland ports (e.g. Kansas City) which are controlled by the Chinese courtesy of the treasonous trade agreement we call NAFTA. As former Secretary of State, Hillary Clinton gave tacit approval and participated in these actions which had their origins prior to her tenure as Secretary of State.”
Cinta, a company that owns most of the solar energy farms throughout the American West, is merely a front for the Chinese military, according to Hodges. And nearly all of the employees who work at these farms are Chinese soldiers who have gained a type of beachhead in our country, he says.
Former California Governor Jerry Brown was also in it, as he included the nation of China, as well as the Bank of China, in his CALEXIT strategy. As you put all of the pieces together, as Hodges has, it becomes clear that the solar energy scam was all a front for communist China.

Time for the LNP/ALP duopoly to hit the reset button.
Ditch China, confiscate their massive Australian property holdings as reparation for war crimes, re-start our manufacturing including motor vehicles, white goods, ship building and armaments, ditch Turnbull’s climate agreement, scrap wind and solar power, build coal-fired power stations. Get government out of primary production and cancel all free trade agreements. Triple military numbers and capacity. This will rebuild our stuffed economy overnight.

Here is Bill Gates’ newly registered patent to combine phone, internet, crypto-currency availability as described in Cairnsnews on April 17, 2020 https://wp.me/p2dFb5-3DA
Patented on March 26, 2020. How coincidental. A lot of people should start praying to stop Patent 060606
Watch the US dollar dive even further while a roll of toilet paper is worth more than a barrel of oil. This is the death of the petro-dollar. Keep a close eye on China. Unfortunately Prime Minister Scott Morrison and Deputy PM McCormack are total Chinese sycophants and will do nothing to upset the communist regime. Australia has to be wary of the Chinese military and its strutting in the Asia-Pacific region. America has been purposely weakened by China and we have to watch their every move and be prepared.
NSW Lebo Shaoquett Moselmane MP is a shameless, Australian-hating, Chinese sycophant who should be deported. He should pay his own airfare. He has brought disgrace upon the thousands of other decent Lebanese immigrants living peacefully in Australia.
In an opinion piece by Moselmane published by the East China Normal University he calls out Australians as ‘….obsolete White scum….’
The Lebanese MP wrote, “Today, media xenophobia and full-scale war against China have become the norm. Today the obsolete scum of ‘white Australia’ is once again flooding, and the theory of yellow fever has once again surfaced.
“Some mainstream media have bred and spread these racial viruses in our multicultural community with the purpose of inciting hatred.”
Moselmaine wants to get rid of Australians and replace them in this country with Chinese.
Yet this moronic Chinese sycophant takes home his annual $200,000 parliamentary wage paid by the very people he wishes to exterminate.
There is now no doubt as to where the Covid19 emanated. It was released from the Bio-security facility in Wuhan, however the accused killer is 5G radiation found in the Smart City.
Cairnsnews has sent this article to the Speaker of the NSW Parliament demanding this sychophant be sacked from Parliament and deported to Wuhan. We reckon you should send your complaint to Speaker Jonathon O’Dea at:

Did Trump just nationalise the Federal Reserve?
by Alexandra Bruce
Special Purpose Vehicles (SPV) devised by the Trump Administration will enable the Treasury to finance his $2 trillion Coronavirus stimulus package WITHOUT INTEREST.
Where did Australian Prime Minister Scott Morrison find $130 billion at the drop of a hat to fund the Coronavirus economic stimulus package for struggling Australia?
The video ‘The Goldfish Report’ on forbiddenknowledgetv.net is the most informative yet about the world monetary system.
NESARA, which stands for the National Economic Security and Recovery Act was conceived by Harvey Francis Bernard, who held a doctorate in Systems Theory that he applied to economics.
On his deathbed in 2005, Harvey Bernard heard claims about NESARA and denied NESARA had been enacted into law.
But here’s where it gets REALLY crazy: The title of Bernard’s NESARA proposal is Draining the Swamp: Monetary and Fiscal Policy Reform.
One of Trump’s top three slogans is associated with all of the craziness above – and we are living it now!
Godfather of the Rothschild banking cartel, Mayer Amschel Rothschild said, “Give me control of a nation’s money and I care not who makes the laws.”
In a recent Bloomberg article, ‘The Fed’s Cure Risks Being Worse than the Disease’, Jim Bianco explains what is now happening with the Federal Reserve Bank in their response to the coronavirus. He writes, “This scheme essentially merges the Fed and Treasury into one organization, so meet your new Fed Chairman, Donald J Trump.”
Did President Trump just nationalize the Federal Reserve Bank?
On June 4th, 1963, President John F Kennedy issued Executive Order 11110, which many believe was an effort to transfer power from the Federal Reserve Bank to the United States Department of the Treasury by replacing Federal Reserve notes with silver certificates, thereby taking the power away from the international banking cartels. Less than six months later, President Kennedy was assassinated and his move against the Fed was reversed.
During the Civil War, President Abraham Lincoln printed $400 million worth of Greenbacks, a debt-free, interest-free money, independent of international bank control. In response, the London Times wrote that, “If that mischievous financial policy, which had its origin in the North American Republic should become indurated down to a fixture then that government will furnish its own money without cost. It will pay off debts and be without debt. It will have all the money necessary to carry on its commerce. It will become prosperous beyond precedent in the history of the civilized governments of the world. The brains and the wealth of all countries will go to North America. That government must be destroyed or it will destroy every monarchy on the globe.”
The bankers were not willing to lose power and the Bank of England went on to fund the Confederacy. Weeks prior to Lincoln’s assassination, assassin John Wilkes Booth spent time in Montreal, known as the “Confederate capital of Canada” and was found after the assassination with a banknote from Ontario Bank. Booth’s personal manager, was banker, Joseph Simonds. After Lincoln was killed, power was restored to the international banking cartel.
The National Economic Security and Recovery Act, known as NESARA was a set of proposed economic reforms suggested during the 1990s by Harvey Francis Bernard. Bernard created the NESARA proposal during the late 1980s. He sent copies to members of Congress but was ignored. In 2001, he established the NESARA Institute and published the second edition of his book in 2005, re-titling it, ‘Draining the Swamp: The NESARA Story Monetary and Fiscal Policy Reform’.
The policies included replacing the Income Tax with a National Sales Tax, abolishing compound interest on unsecured loans and returning to a “bimetallic currency” (gold and silver), which he claimed would result in zero percent inflation and a more stable economy.
There is a big buzz on the Internet that President Trump is implementing this plan. There is also speculation that this is part of a huge global economic reset, GESARA to be decided at the international World Court of The Hague. If this is true, certainly this decision has been decided years ago and we are just now feeling the effects.
The Coronavirus scare is beginning to look like a false alarm but the reaction is looking just like a false flag and it seems that when we come out the other end of this the world will be different.

Google had decided to sacrifice their own mission statement as a company, to ‘organize the world’s information and to make it universally-accessible’ – by censoring everything!
One of the bright spots of the past 3 years has been the emergence of Google whistleblower, Zach Vorhies and his insider confirmation that our most paranoid imaginings about Google were true with his gory details of how they’ve been actively working to censor independent content creators.
Vorhies, who was an engineer at Google-YouTube for 8 years describes working there as a dream job until he noticed a marked change in corporate ideology immediately following the election of Donald Trump.
This culminated into his jaw-dropping discovery that Google’s mobilization against “Fake News” and with their supposedly anti-bias “Machine Learning Fairness” program was almost entirely designed to protect Hillary Clinton from scrutiny into her crimes (!)
For example, he says, “[Google management] said that Hillary Clinton running weapons through Benghazi was an example of Fake News.” Not knowing whether or not this was true, Vorhies did his own due diligence and discovered, to his surprise that there was overwhelming evidence that Hillary had not only funneled weapons to ISIS, but that ISIS had fired a stinger missile she’d given to them, which didn’t ignite, therefore allowing it to be traced back to her.
It was at this point that he began to ask himself if Google’s efforts were “really about Fake News or is this really about controlling the narrative?”
Then he thought, “If they have a way to classify ‘Fake News’, then they must have some way to execute on removing this ‘Fake News’ from their search engine.” He scoured Google’s corporate intranet to discover what was doing this, which is how he discovered the project known as ‘Machine Learning Fairness’.
“They had put a lot of time into this project” and into convincing fellow managers into giving a priority to the project for all of their different systems, including Google Search, Google News and YouTube.
He’d stumbled upon these plans in early 2017 and was shocked over the course of the rest of the year, to watch it being pushed into more and more projects and to see more and more people hired for it. They were clearly going into an implementation phase.
Vorhies grew increasingly concerned and wondered why Google had decided to sacrifice their own mission statement as a company, to ‘organize the world’s information and to make it universally-accessible’ – by censoring everything!
He then describes an instance of how Google collaborated with the New York Times and the Washington Post in a psychological operation upon the world, when they removed the word “Covfefe” from the Arabic language section of Google Translator, to support the mainstream media in its full-saturation campaign to portray Donald Trump as “mentally ill”, in their bid to invoke the 25th Amendment and to have him replaced, due to his obvious “incapacitation”.
At this point, he had to ask himself whether he was witnessing a large scale act of sedition.
He then noticed that Google executives, including current CEO, Sundar Pichai lied to Congress by denying that they blacklisted any websites. When Vorhies went to check Google’s corporate intranet, he found that several websites were blacklisted in the wake of the Las Vegas shooting, including the independent cold fusion website, E-Cat.
Further digging led Vorhies to the discovery that Google had their own secret cold fusion laboratory, which has since been made public. So, not only has Google been blacklisting and depriving many businesses, especially competitors of search traffic but they’ve been aiding in an attempted coup d’état against the duly elected president, all while adhering to the KGB playbook of Socialist ideological subversion, according to the tenets described by Soviet defector, Yuri Bezmenov.
This is the best interview with Zach Vorhies by far, going into the heart-pounding details of his resignation from Google, how Google called a massive police raid that shut down 2 square blocks of downtown San Francisco with a bomb squad and two helicopters, followed by harrowing lawfare. He describes how he’s strategized and prevailed. Zach is a real spiritual warrior.
He says all except one of the US’ 52 State’s Attorneys (except for California’s, naturally) are now investigating Google with Zach’s evidence, in addition to the City of New York and the Federal Government.
I didn’t realize when I started this that I would end up on the front lines of an asymmetrical civil war. As someone whose business has been destroyed in part by the algorithms discussed here, it’s been a validating experience to have a brave insider confirm what was so clear to many of us who make our living online and who could perceive that the Internet had been suddenly rigged against us.
It’s been such a relief to have him come forward, after over three years of algorithmic censorship and recurrent de-platformings, destroying my business when I do nothing wrong, let alone illegal, while these tech companies remain inscrutable and unpunished. Together with the Full Spectrum barrage of Fake News from the Mainstream Media, that has brainwashed my friends and family, I have to say, the past few years have been very demoralizing.
Recently, there’s been a ray of light. Around March 14th or 15th, I began to notice that my website’s traffic had significantly increased but that this wasn’t coming from my newsletter or from social media. This had to mean that it was coming from organic search traffic to my website’s nearly 6,000 pages, that people are again able to find using Google. My search traffic has been shut off for the past three years, which translates to lower page views and less ad revenue.
Vorhies gives his theory as to why it seems that Google removed some of their censorship algorithms. Those “17,000 Google engineers” that Trump said he’d hired to make a coronavirus app (which they still haven’t delivered) really only requires the skills of one engineer and no more than 3 days to create. He says each one of these engineers earns about $200,000 per year or a total of $3.4 billion per year – more, if the project stretches longer.
Vorhies’ best guess is that Google has accepted the Trump administration’s payoff to “unf@ck” their algorithms and to hopefully avoid serious trouble. Google has committed a laundry list of crimes with the expectation that Trump would not survive to prosecute them. The restoration of engagement-based search ranking should have an impact on the 2020 election.
By: John Hayward, Breitbart, 24 Mar 2020:
The opacity of the Chinese Communist government obliges responsible outside observers to look for clues to the truth of the coronavirus epidemic, instead of merely repeating official information without question.
The official count from China is 3,277 fatalities from 81,171 infections as of Tuesday, but the Epoch Times noted the troubling disappearance of some 21 million cell phone accounts in China over the past three months – an unprecedented decline that hints at more fatalities than Beijing is prepared to admit.
It should be stated at the outset that we should not be forced to read tea leaves to figure out what really happened in China, especially in the virus epicenter of Hubei province and the city of Wuhan, where Chinese officials are currently making claims of zero new infections that no one seriously believes. While more responsible governments issue troubling warnings of a second wave of infections, severe enough to prompt the re-imposition of quarantine procedures that were only recently lifted, China claims it has no second wave and all of its new coronavirus cases are imported.
WITH THAT IN MIND, THE EPOCH TIMES THOUGHT IT WAS A BIT ODD FOR 21 MILLION CHINESE CELL PHONES TO ABRUPTLY DISAPPEAR, GIVEN THAT CELL PHONE USAGE HAS BEEN INCREASING CONSTANTLY IN CHINA FOR YEARS, AND PHONES HAVE BEEN TOUTED AS AN IMPORTANT TOOL FOR CONTAINING THE CORONAVIRUS EPIDEMIC:
More From The Web
China’s Ministry of Industry and Information Technology (MIIT) announced on March 19 the number of phone users in each province in February. Compared with the previous announcement, which was released on Dec. 18, 2019, for November 2019 data, both cellphone and landline users dropped dramatically. In the same period the year before, the number of users increased.
The number of cellphone users decreased from 1.600957 billion to 1.579927 billion, a drop of 21.03 million. The number of landline users decreased from 190.83 million to 189.99 million, a drop of 840,000.
In the previous February, the number increased. According to MIIT, the number of cellphone users increased in February 2019 from 1.5591 billion to 1.5835 billion, which is 24.37 million more. The number of landline users increased from 183.477 million to 190.118 million, which is 6.641 million more.
According to China’s National Bureau of Statistics, the country’s population at the end of 2019 was 4.67 million larger than in 2018, reaching 1.40005 billion.
The article went on to postulate that some of the landlines might have been shut down as a consequence of the coronavirus quarantines, particularly lines used by shuttered business operations, but the sheer magnitude of the cell phone user decline makes it more difficult to explain. China Mobile, the nation’s largest carrier, reported gaining 3.7 million new accounts in December but then losing over 8 million in January and February, months in which it posted gains of 3.5 million users the previous year.
The Epoch Times considered several explanations for the loss of users, such as migrant workers who kept different cell phones for their home and work cities – necessary due to some of China’s regulations on phone service – abandoning the work phone because it was not needed during the quarantine period, or people generally canceling their phone service because they wanted to save money during the hard months.
On the other hand, the government is currently requiring citizens to use their cell phones to generate “health codes” so their movements can be tracked and permission to travel can be restricted to healthy individuals, so as U.S.-based commentator Tang Jiangyuan put it, it is effectively “impossible for a person to cancel his cellphone.”
“Dealing with the government for pensions and social security, buying train tickets, shopping … no matter what people want to do, they are required to use cell phones,” Tang noted.
The New York Times explained just how heavily Chinese authorities are leaning on those cell phones to monitor their population, and not just for coronavirus infections:
The Times’s analysis found that as soon as a user grants the software access to personal data, a piece of the program labeled “reportIng And Location To Police” sends the person’s location, city name and an identifying code number to a server. The software does not make clear to users its connection to the police. But according to China’s state-run Xinhua news agency and an official police social media account, law enforcement authorities were a crucial partner in the system’s development.
While Chinese internet companies often share data with the government, the process is rarely so direct. In the United States, it would be akin to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention using apps from Amazon and Facebook to track the coronavirus, then quietly sharing user information with the local sheriff’s office.
The system, which relies on a unit of the immense Chinese e-commerce company Alibaba, assigns users a green, yellow, or red “health code” in the style of a traffic light. Predictably, Chinese citizens find the opaque system cryptic and frightening, since the government has not explained exactly how it works.
“In some cities, residents now have to register their phone numbers with an app to take public transportation,” the Times added.
At the beginning of March, the so-called Alipay Health Code system had been launched in the city of Hangzhou, expanded to 200 other cities, and was on its way to a complete nationwide rollout. The rollout ran into some hitches over the following weeks, from technical glitches to confusion caused by local governments adding their own health codes to the already intimidating system.
A correspondent writing for Bloomberg News on March 18 reported using the system and said it was in the process of being “rolled out nationwide at railway stations, restaurants, pharmacies, and more.” Other reports in China have noted how cell phones are ubiquitous there and are employed for everything from accessing public and commercial resources to telecommuting to school during the coronavirus lockdown.
With this in mind, it might not be completely impossible to get by in Chinese cities without a cell phone at the moment, but it seems unlikely that a huge number of citizens would choose this moment to get rid of their phones.
“Lacking data, the real death toll in China is a mystery. The cancellation of 21 million cellphones provides a data point that suggests the real number may be far higher than the official number,” the Epoch Times concluded.
Letter to the Editor
Martial law in Poland
The world is in various forms of lockdown to avoid the inevitable—a trimming of the human herd.
It’s disconcerting to reach the age and time of life where you are the one the wolves would choose to trim out of the herd, but that’s life—and death.
It’s Mother Nature’s way and I respect it—even though I heard from a reliable source that Covid-19 might have had a little help from the P-4 lab on the outskirts of Wuhan.
My beloved Warsaw is in lock-down to prevent the spread of this killer disease. Sure, it’s over-hyped, but on the other hand—it seems to be working. Only a few deaths today and the spread is rapidly grinding to a halt.
The weak and old are dying. The young and healthy are recovering.
Once we reach a 60% level of infection/exposure, Mother Nature kicks in with an incredible defensive mechanism yet to be understood—herd immunity.
That’s right. Once 60% of us are exposed to this virulent form of flu, our human herd develops its own defense mechanism. How?
They haven’t a clue, but it happened with Covid 1-18, and it will happen again on #19, with or without a vaccine.
So as soldiers are closing and barricading the roads in and out of my ancient city, I’ve been thinking.
By Monday morning, only food and necessary deliveries will be allowed—which at first seems a little scary—but I’ve realised that it’s not all bad.
You see our borders are also closing for the first time since The Schengen Agreement was signed on June 14, 1985—but yesterday when guards starting dragging truckloads of combat-aged Muslims out of trucks and containers at the new border checks (15 Afghan soldiers in just one lorry)—it occurred to me that there are some upsides to all of this pain.
And it’s not just stopping the endless flood of young Muslim men invading Europe. It’s much more—and it’s all for the better.
Borders. Boundaries. An end to the terrible Globalists. A return to National Sovereignty. Hmmm
We’re going to lose a lot from our herd to this Chinese disease—yes, that’s where it came from and they deserve the credit, so I’ll continue calling it that.
But think of it. This killer has done something that a very few of our weak-sister politricksters would on their own—it has forced them to act like leaders of nations again.
They must focus now on taking care of those they were meant to serve instead of being the head whores of open-door flop houses for the rest of the world.
So, let’s look on the bright side of Wuhan Fever
Not only are borders and boundaries springing up again—entire restructuring of our supply chains is occurring as well—and it’s all happening quite literally overnight.
“Chinese pharmaceutical companies have supplied more than 90 percent of U.S. antibiotics,” according to the New York Times—and a Chinese official hinted this week that those might be withheld as a threat to the U.S. as leverage on trade issues—and if they do, it would be good thing in my opinion.
Yes, some of us will die for lack of medicine, but it will force my home nation and everyone else’s to wake up to the dangers of allowing a Communist totalitarian gang bent on world control to hold us hostage for basic needs
The last penicillin producer in America, as example, was shuttered in 2004, largely due to unfair trade practices by China and weak U.S. leadership allowing it—but one will spring up within days now, just like two surgical mask businesses did last week.
Surgical mask and latex glove manufacturing moved to China decades ago, but they’re rolling off the assembly line in Texas by the thousands as I write—and were up and running within weeks—thanks to private entrepreneurs and the elimination of thousands of regulations under President Trump—more of which were ditched yesterday as part of his declaration of a National Emergency.
In fact, the re-location of the supply chains just from the Hubei Province will leave China weakened for decades, and all of our nations will be strengthened in the process.
Jobs—real manufacturing jobs—are already flooding back to America, for example. Even in the midst of this crisis, 273,000 new jobs sprung up just last month and unemployment dropped to a record low of 3.5%.
There are only two losers in all of this—the Chinese Communist Party and the Soros One Worlders. They’re both done by the end of this pandemic.
It won’t happen overnight, but it will happen. The world has seen the dangers of totalitarianism and the Chinese people will demand a change—in order to survive now that China’s weakness has been exposed (they’re $40 trillion in debt and entering a steep recession).
The other form of totalitarianism—Globalism—the one that brought on this pandemic—will be the other loser.
And I look forward to writing both of their obituaries.
Totalitarianism and globalism
Here they lie in this twin grave
Because like humans they could not behave.
One stole our wealth and one stole our soul,
Which is why they ended up in this damn hole.
May they never rest in peace

KAP Leader, Robbie Katter said it’s quite clear major businesses and government are closely aligned with China, after the ACCC cleared the way for China Mengniu Dairy to takeover Lion’s dairy and drinks portfolio.
“Unlike Australia, China’s government looks after the Chinese people first and foremost,” he said.
“It’s no secret that they have an insatiable appetite for our goods and industry and when it comes to their interests compared to ours, of course we will lose.
“Governments have proven time and again that they are less than willing to correct that imbalance.”
The State Member for Traeger said it was a bad outcome for the nation’s dairy farmers.
“While foreign investment is nothing new to the dairy industry, it still remains a characteristic of the government culture in Australia,” he said.
Federal Member for Kennedy, Bob Katter said he was sick of the blood sucking Sydney suits selling their country out.
“They get their 30 pieces of sliver for selling their country but I am certain they will rot in Hell,” Mr Katter said.
“The government is a joke. It’s not a government. It doesn’t bear any resemblance to a government.
“They are not reflecting the will of the people. The only will Australia’s governments reflect is the one they see in the mirror.”
Mr Katter said he was taking his fight against the foreign takeover of Australia to the Parliament; just last week he introduced the Foreign Acquisitions and Takeovers Amendment (Strategic Assets) Bill 2020.
