Minister’s foreword to ‘Your guide to the Digital Identity legislation’
As we have seen during recent years, Australians are keen and willing to adapt to challenges (Scamdemic). In recent years, our nation has transformed the way we go about our daily lives – and it all revolves around digital. From shopping to banking to accessing government services, Australia has turned to digital in droves.
With this comes great benefits – a thriving digital economy drives growth by enabling businesses to prosper, providing more job opportunities for Australians, and connecting us with emerging industries and technologies across the world. However, Australians and Australian businesses must have trust and confidence that the system and their personal information is safe and secure.
A safe, thriving digital economy is the best way we can grow the Australian economy.
A safe, thriving digital economy is not possible without digital identity – that is, a safe, secure and convenient way for Australians to prove their identity online.
This is the focus of the proposed Digital Identity legislation. The Trusted Digital Identity Bill, once passed by Parliament, will establish permanent oversight and governance structures for the Australian Government Digital Identity System, and enshrine in law important privacy and consumer protections. It builds on strong safeguards already in place, providing the authority for a consistent set of rules that will protect Australians and Australian businesses. The work achieved in this space, and the future opportunities that legislation will enable, are critical parts of the Morrison Government’s ambition for our nation to be a leading digital economy and society by 2030.
The release of this exposure draft of the Bill and supporting materials is the next step in a multi-year journey of consultation to ensure the legislation is robust, fit-for-purpose, and meets public expectations. My sincere thanks to those who have contributed their views to date. I encourage you all to review the materials and provide your feedback to help us ensure this important work is done right.

NSW Supreme Court judgement on Covid mandates just proves, like Queensland, NSW has the best judges money can buy!
Letter to the Editor
“Soylent green and gold” gave insight into the arrogance of some men in wigs in this Country but no one was listening. This legal grab really needs to be sorted before they announce the coming Marburg virus. That’s the one predicted by censored Scientists. It will be hemorrhagic and deadly as a symptom of those who continue, with boosters, to be jabbed. Like an Ebola. After 9/11 Australia created new Counter-Terrorism Laws (2008) and we still have rights under the International Human rights treaties including the Covenant on Civil and Political rights. Surely Section 100.1 of the Criminal code could be argued.
In this, “an action or threat of an action, is made with the intention of advancing….a political, religious OR ideological cause….and coercing or influencing by intimidation, the Government of the Commonwealth, State or Territory or the Government of a foreign country OR intimidating the public or a section of the public….it is a terrorist act if it causes serious physical harm or death, seriously damages property, endangers a person’s life, creates a serious risk to public health or safety….” All these things have occurred in 2020/21. Suicide, bankruptcy, family breakdown and violence, death in Nursing homes…people locked up in Unit blocks.
In my way of thinking, we continue to be terrorised (by fear tactics) and harassed, not by guns but by needles. International lawyers have already called out WHO and have already won. The PCR tests are redundant. They will no longer be used after Dec. The whole pandemic was based on a false test. We know who GAVI is. We know who turned up to influence the WHO in 2015. We know what the World Economic Forum want…for the serfs to own nothing and be happy. We know they are pushing for their NWO, a One World Government ideology. We know of the Biometric Digital ID pass system that they are trying to impose by DNA collection/PCR testing and jabs. This is an ongoing assault on our lives. We the people are being terrorised.
Justice Beech Jones is supposed to be a Common Law judge. We doubt he has any knowledge of common law at all. Maybe he was a conveyancing clerk before he was appointed to the bench at the Inns-of-Court late one night while being jolly at the festive board. Editor
NSW Liberal/National Parties with Labor support terrorise mum and dad shoppers with para-military police
Massive police presence at NSW Basshill shopping centre terrorised shoppers who still do not know why they were there in force. Drones and choppers overhead it was a military-style invasion the residents of Sydney’s west are being subjected to daily.. Thanks go to Rebel News, always at the front line.

Questions over private health corporations big political donations
South Coast Labour Council secretary Arthur Rorris is questioning why some of the nation’s private health corporations are channelling millions of dollars to a ‘’political party with a privatisation agenda’’.
Mr Rorris said Australian Electoral Commission data revealed that health and pharmaceutical companies had forked out more than $8 million in political donations in the past decade.
He said the vast majority of the donations went to the Liberal Party with Ramsay Health Care – which operates Wollongong, Figtree, Lawrence Hargrave and Nowra private hospitals – one of the biggest donors.

He said from 2006 to 2016 Ramsay Health Care had donated around $750,000 to the Liberals at a federal and state level, while $1.7 million had been donated by Paul Ramsay Holdings.
Sonic Healthcare, BUPA Australia, Swisse Vitamins and Novartis Pharmaceuticals were among the other major political donors.
‘’No reasonable person could come to the conclusion that big health corporations donate to politicians for our health, they’re doing it for their own interests,’’ Mr Rorris said.
‘’Corporations see political donations as their way to get access to politicians and promote their agenda – and their agenda is clearly to increase their market share.’’

Far North Queensland federal member Bob Katter has attacked the Liberal National Party’s Identify and Disrupt bill before Parliament, enabling police to spy on every citizen by coming through a back door in emails and other private media communications.
He said Australia is now a total Orwellian society and voters should be alarmed at the LNP/ALP duopoly’s trashing of human rights.
The Identify and Disrupt Bill 2021 grants the Australian Federal Police (AFP) and the Australian Criminal Intelligence Commission (ACIC) the power to modify, add, copy, or delete data, on a person’s online accounts.
So what this means is that the AFP can log into your Email, your Facebook, Instagram any other social media, and not only view it but actually alter it however they want. They can send emails on your behalf, they can post things on your behalf, they can engage in criminal activity on your behalf in order to reach their objective. And if they want to throw you under the bus, you’re just collateral damage.
This will not only turn Australia into a bigger surveillance state, but it will make the government the enemy of Australians.
“The Christian Brothers, and other educators, insisted on us reading 1984 and A Brave New World, and now these Orwellian predictions have never seemed more real,” Mr Katter said.
“Whatever argument you have for forsaking your freedoms, at the end of the day you will find it’s a poor trade off.
Mr Katter said Australia was becoming one of the most oppressive western regimes, and things were getting worse every day as both mainstream political parties restricted people’s freedoms.
“George Orwell’s book 1984 released in the 1960s was a horror story, but now it is a brutal reality,” he said.
“The Government can fund multi-million-dollar hardware to use against its own people when at the same time they can’t even provide the resources to protect their citizens against continuous home invasions, build dams, or to firm up our fuel security.
“Even boiling a billy after a walk through the bush can put you in breach of multiple petty regulations these days. It’s 1984 Orwell, not Australia.”
On many occasions in the last year I have addressed the Senate in regard to freedom as a counterbalance to medical tyranny. And I recently addressed the Canberra Freedom Rally, remotely. The side that is locking people up for the crime of being healthy, arresting protesters, pepper spraying kids, beating up grannies, banning books and electronic messages, censoring social media, sending threatening letters, forcing small businesses to close, urging people to dob in dissenters and banning safe drugs that have worked for 60 years are all on the wrong side of history.
In a frightening development, New South Wales has called in the troops to keep innocent, healthy citizens locked in their homes in what can only be called martial law. Recent freedom marches showed what happens to citizens who exercise their democratic right to protest. People are demonised, hunted down; the media vilifies them to discourage others from questioning the control state. If the government can decide who is free and who is not, then that is not freedom and no-one is free. A crisis will always be found to justify measures designed to protect the government, not the public—a crisis that is as is easy to create as turning up the PCR test from 24 cycles to 42, where a false positive is the most likely outcome, as has occurred.
Actions such as these have created a crisis of confidence in government, and that, fellow citizens, is on the Senate. We are the house of review. We’re tasked with a duty to ensure honesty, transparency and accountability in the government of the day. We have failed in that solemn duty, our duty to our constituents. We have failed those who are yet to vote, our children, who are now being injected with a substance that has not undergone meaningful safety testing. The Liberal, National and Labor parties have colluded to waive these measures through this place, reducing the Senate to the status of a dystopian echo chamber.
Each new restriction, although met with rightful public opposition, has not led to a re-evaluation but, rather, has led the government to crack down even further. The Morrison government is behaving like a gambling addict who loses a hand but doubles down instead of admitting error and walking away. With troops now on the streets, it’s frightening to contemplate where this will end. Everyday Australians are being deliberately demoralised to extract a higher degree of compliance. When COVID first arrived, there were few masks, and the experts and authorities told us masks were not necessary. Now, those same medically ineffective masks are used to condition people to fear and obedience. Crushing resistance crushes hope, and without hope we have no future.
Is it any wonder that small businesses are closing permanently? Every small business that closes is a family that was being provided for through hard work and enterprise. Who will look after those families now—the government? With whose money? The Reserve Bank, using electronic journal entries, can only create fiat money out of thin air for so long before it runs down our country. The government can only sell bonds until buyers stop coming forward. Then what happens? We will have no tax base left to pay government stipends to people who were once able to pay their own way. Since when has the Liberal Party, the supposed party of Menzies, been dedicated to making huge sections of the population totally reliant on the government for survival? The bad joke here is that the excuse used to justify the sudden rush to Marxism—public health—is moot. Death from all sources, including coronavirus and the flu, are at historic lows. Australia’s death rate in 2020 was less than in 2019, and 2021’s death rate is lower again.
We’re strangling Australia’s economic life and future for no reason. Power has gone to the heads of our elected leaders and unelected bureaucrats, who are exercising powers yet do not feel the consequences themselves.
Never in history has Lord Acton’s famous quote rung more true: ‘Power corrupts, and absolute power corrupts absolutely.’ It’s been calculated that the civil disobedience tipping point—which is the maximum capacity of the police to arrest people, of the jails to hold people and of the courts to process people—is in Australia around 100,000 people. Anything more than that and the system comes crashing down. Attendance at the freedom rallies last month shows we’re almost there.
No wonder the Morrison government has been scared into resorting to the refuge of tyrants—using the military to intimidate civilians into compliance and to mandating injections and threatening to rip away people’s livelihoods. Everyday Australians are seeing through the smokescreens of fear and intimidation. People now see that the costs of the restrictions to family and community exceed the medical cost of the virus. Everyday Australians have spoken. We will not be divided, we are united, we are one community, we are one nation.
Scott Morrison was at the Eagles-Magpies game in Perth Friday night appearing on the big screen at the Optus stadium but was met with a deafening roar by the 54,159-strong crowd booing.
Morrison’s approval rating has been smashed by voters amid a backlash led by rape survivor Brittany Higgins, other sexual abuse survivors and women’s fight for justice.
More fuel on the Morrison fire as an ABC investigation reveals a group of taxpayer-funded aged care homes funnelled $31 million back into the coffers of one of Australia’s largest churches, an ABC investigation has found.
The homes include St Basil’s in Melbourne, where 45 residents died in Australia’s deadliest COVID outbreak.
In the past eight years, St Basil’s paid more than $22 million in rent and fees to the Greek Orthodox Archdiocese while receiving federal government funding.
Cairns News commercial real estate sources said this was double the rental market rate.
A Sydney harbour views apartment purchased by the Greek Orthodox Archdiocese at $6.5 million is part of supporting a lavish lifestyle of of its newly appointed Archbishop Makarios.
At what point of irrefutable blatant, endemic, government corruption can we expect the bean counters in Canberra to reel in irrefutable, indictable theft defined in the Crimes Act our god fearing Prime Minister appears to condone?
To add to his woes, recent polls have shown voters do not approve of an ID Card or vaccine passport being developed by the Prime Minister’s Department.
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.

To those who ignore the requirements of future generations — those who only think of themselves with no planning for the requirements of future generations:
You voted for politicians to treat your grandchildren’s future with contemptuous disinterest, to sell it out from under them.
Have you given any consideration of future generations survival requirements or are you too busy and self-centered to care?
AUSTRALIA THE WORLD’S QUARRY, what happens when there is none left?
What do your grandchildren do for “their” nations income and industry?
When all the oil, gas, copper, gold, precious metals needed in modern technology, and other minerals have been sold to China and others, how do your descendants survive?
How do they power their homes and industry?
How do they process and cook their food, as you did or as caveman did?
It requires energy to think, intelligence to formulate thoughts, and wisdom to put them into practice — do you have any of these requirements?
Or do you default to other’s thinking and instructions, instead of using your own?
You are the beginning of your children’s and their children’s future,
Will you make it a success for them?
Or by your own inaction let others destroy it?
You have a responsibility to those who walked before you to make your life of value, their sacrifices in war and backbreaking toil of their life’s work for a better world for you, to make your life of value.
What are you doing to continue their work for your children and grandchildren?
When did you take a little of your time to tell your local MP and Senator, what you want them to do for your children’s future?
Too much trouble for you to take time away from your sport, pub, and other interests?
By your inaction you default your thinking and direction to those of lesser intelligence who have no concern nor interest in your children’s future — only their own.
Are you one of those who stand tall and proud on ANZAC DAY — then wilt with disinterest and lack of concern for your children’s future the next day?
It took years of hard work to produce the great Australia we know today, it took less than a decade for ALP and Green politicians to allow mentally deranged religious terrorists into your community to kill you — then take billions of you taxes to protect you from them — taxes that should have been spent on education and health for your family.
Our pioneers, community, parents and defences personnel set a standard for Australia to live by — in a decade you have allowed these standards to be destroyed by social engineers, word warpers, gender benders, the offence industry, and the those unable to analyse common sense into reality.
It’s never too late – ‘IF’ you care for your children and Australia’s future.
Take a deep breath, stand on your feet and let that bit of ‘snake’ in you rise to the surface, go and take your local politician head-on — as you did opponents on the football field years ago — tell them and their pathetically complaint staff that put you correspondence to them in the rubbish bin — that you have had a gutful, that you demand a better standard, no more twisted words and sexual distortions, we are male or female — what you do with it does not change your sex.
Go back to a high standard of decency in the community teaching children basic subjects, English, Maths, Science — where factual history is taught and twisted, sanitised personal opinions in lieu of fact are banned — PROVE IT OR REMOVE IT, from teaching.
Everyone — it is up to us what direction our children and society goes forward into the future with. We must demand an improved standard from teachers, bureaucracy, politicians — or dissolve into a quagmire of confused nothing the Chinese are watching happen — as they let us destroy ourselves, making it easier for their planned invasion — it’s not far away.
They have control of land near every infrastructure, military establishment, ports, airports, parliaments, water supplies, roads, bridges, and power supplies — with permission of stupid state governments and prior federal governments — at least this federal government is taking action.
It has been revealed Chinese intention is to kill all defence personnel, politicians, community leaders, *non-productive people, and take ownership of your home with a bullet induced vacancy — as done in Tibet. *(Protestors note)
We provide them with all their construction and development material for their massive trillion-dollar military equipment, that will be attacking us in the future — have we gone mad?
Their biological weapons are well established, as detailed in ‘China Speaks’ by General Chi Haotain — Covid-19 was a test run to observe how it would cripple the West’s economy and military.
It provided the camouflage under the guise of Covid vaccination, to inoculation their population against the next one that will destroy Australia, the West and most of the world.
Then as detailed in ‘China Speaks’, “Only countries like the United States, Canada and Australia have the vast land to serve our need for mass colonization”, “Only by using special means to ‘clean up’ America will we be able to lead the Chinese people there. Only by using non-destructive weapons that can kill many people will we be able to reserve America for ourselves”. “It is indeed brutal to kill one or two hundred million Americans (and Australians). But that is the only path that will secure a Chinese century, a century in which the CCP leads the world”.
Israel’s Begin-Sadat Center for Strategic Studies – advises more than 40 Chinese facilities are involved in bio-weapon production. It is reported they have a successful vaccine for Ebola Virus, highly infectious and usually fatal , and many other gain-of-function chimeric viruses (Lab created viruses with fatal components of others genetically fused).
You either stop them now or they will end your children’s future — like they did to the slaughtered Tibetans and those in Tiananmen Square on 4 June1989, where they shot, killed and injured an estimated 10,000 students, then ran over the dead and dying with tanks pulping their bodies, then scraped their bodies into heaps and burnt them — because they dared to have a different opinion to the government — the same government our politicians and industry suck-up to for dollars.
In a secret cable to Britain (BBC), British ambassador to China, Sir Alan Donald reported:
“….. at least 10,000 people were killed”, “Students linked arms but were mowed down including soldiers. Armoured Personnel Carriers then ran over bodies time and time again to make ‘pie’ and remains collected by bulldozer. Remains incinerated and then hosed down drains”. “Four wounded girl students begged for their lives but were bayoneted.”
Australia’s chief nursing and midwifery officer, Alison McMillan, said Queensland Health was working hard to get the jab to healthcare workers as quickly as possible.
But she conceded the task could take several more weeks.
The Morrison government is aiming for everyone who wants to have the vaccine to receive their first dose by October, far short of initial targets of four million by early April.
More than 541,000 Australians have received their first COVID-19 vaccines, including 259,000 in the past week.
Tasmania, Western Australia, South Australia, Victoria, the ACT and Northern Territory have moved in a variety of ways to restrict or outright ban incoming travel from Brisbane, or the state, over the growing cluster.
The NSW border remains open. But Mrs Berejiklian has asked residents eyeing a trip north over Easter to change their plans.
The Brisbane outbreak is also a double blow for non-essential hospitality and tourism companies in Queensland ordered to close just a day after the federal government’s JobKeeper wage subsidy scheme ended.
“It does make you wonder when the government says that we’re ‘not in a race’ for vaccination,” Labor MP Andrew Leigh said.
“It absolutely ought to be treated as a race. The government ought to be sprinting.”
He said Australia remained about 90th in the world in vaccine rollouts per capita, with a third of Queensland businesses are close to hitting the wall.

Cairnsnews can’t understand all the fuss from the woke women’s brigade. The political parties in Parliament House have been f…ing the country for years.
A federal Liberal staffer sacked over a video of himself performing a lewd act on the desk of a female MP in Parliament House also took another video of himself performing a sex act on someone else in what he said was his boss’ office.
In a video seen by The Sydney Morning Herald and The Age, the man performs a sex act on another man in an office. The green carpet visible behind him in the video matches the carpet from the floor of the House of Representatives’ wing of Parliament.
The man in the video later claimed it was filmed in his boss’ office.
Ten News on Monday night reported a group of Coalition government staffers exchanged pictures and videos among themselves of sex acts performed in Parliament House.
Government sources confirmed the man in the Ten News video was sacked on Monday night after the report went public. They did not confirm the man’s name. Ten News showed heavily pixelated images of the man masturbating over the desk of an unnamed female MP. The Sydney Morning Herald and The Age have seen an unpixelated image from the video showing his face.
This masthead contacted the man on Monday night but he did not respond. The Sydney Morning Herald and The Age have chosen not to name him because his employer has not confirmed his identity.
Former Attorney General George Brandis and his boys will be ducking for cover in London
Ten News also reported that sex workers had been brought into Parliament House to visit MPs.
Prime Minister Scott Morrison said the reports and videos were “disgusting and sickening”. He urged anyone with further information to come forward, noting the man at the centre of the allegations had been identified and sacked.
“It’s not good enough, and is totally unacceptable. The people who come to work in this building are better than this,” Mr Morrison said in a statement on Monday night.
