As I see it –
Karl Marx Communist Manifesto
1. Abolition of property in land and application of all rents (land taxes, council rates)
of land to public purposes.
The “rent” on your property in Australia is in the form of an illegal tax which if not paid over a period of 3 years the “Local Government’ is obliged to hold an auction sale for the recovery of the money owed. So who owns the house and land?
“The Australian Taxation Office (ATO) is an Australian government statutory agency…..”
Where are the statutes to be found?
Similarly where are the Commonwealth of Australia governments statutes authorising a 3rd tier of government?
Section 109 of the Australian Constitution states:
“When a law of a State is inconsistent with a law of the Commonwealth, the latter shall prevail and the former shall, to the extent of the inconsistency, be invalid.”
Because the state Parliaments of Australia are subject to the Commonwealth Parliament and also subject to the Commonwealth Constitution, the states cannot lawfully impose a ‘Land Tax’, ‘only the Commonwealth Government holds such taxation authority’.
“The very same applies to local governments continuance and application of rates and taxes issued on their behalf”
(State governments cannot be awarded powers from the commonwealth that are not theirs to hand over)
Until the states of Australia can provide a legal authority either from the High Court of Australia; or from the Federal Government giving authority to raise taxes, to comply with your intentions would be in breach of the law itself, that you are bound to uphold.
All local government has been constitutionally illegal since 3-9-88 when there was a referendum to incorporate local Government into the Australian Constitution, and prior to the referendum, there has never been any implied legality.
This means that all local government authorities now operate without a lawful head of power. The legal bind is that states cannot retain legislation that condones any form of local government.
Thus all levels of government are operating illegally ignoring the instructions of the people. If the government will not obey the Constitutional Will of The People and thus democratic law, why should the people obey parliamentary law? The precedent has been set.
FURTHERMORE Local Government Rates are deemed a tax thus no GST is applicable.
Clearly in sections 51 and 52 of the Constitution and from the Constitutional Commission (1985 – 1988) report that the power of taxation is held exclusively by the Federal Parliament. No states have authority under the constitution to impose a tax. Clearly in sections 51 and 52 of the Constitution and from the Constitutional Commission (1985 – 1988) report that “The power of taxation is held exclusively by the Federal Parliament.” Thus Local Government Rates being a tax are unlawful and in breach of the constitution.
4. Unless we receive a “Rates Notice” from the ‘Commissioner for Taxation council rates are INVALID and UNLAWFUL.
BUT – The ATO is an agency of the Commonwealth.
STATEMENT by former Attorney General to prevent validity of ATO from scutiny
Attorney-General – George Brandis QC
Senate Hansard, Monday, 28 November 2016
“………..Nevertheless, because a constitutional issue had been raised, a notice under section 78B of the Judiciary Act went to the Commonwealth, as well as to the states and territories, asking if the Commonwealth wished to intervene in the proceedings. It is important to point out that although the ATO is an agency of the Commonwealth it is a different legal personality. It nevertheless represents the interests of the Commonwealth in protecting the revenue. It is not automatic that the Commonwealth intervenes in proceedings every time it receives a section 78B notice. Every section 78B notice is assessed according to its own particular facts………………”
….Relatively low key but highly symbolic Commonwealth support of local government continued during the Howard Liberal–National Government (1996–2007). A significant local government initiative of the Howard years was the Roads to Recovery program, which provided funds direct to local governments to upgrade, construct and maintain local roads. Begun in 2000, some $1.2 billion dollars was spent on Roads to Recovery grants by May 2005, and a further $1.23 billion was subsequently committed for the 2005–06 to 2008–09 fiscal period. This program benefited many rural and regional councils, a reflection, perhaps, of an old national ideal identified by political scientist Judith Brett:
Built into the notion of what it was to be an Australian was an idea of shared access to basic services, a shared minimum standard of living, no matter where you lived.
The rhetoric behind the Roads to Recovery scheme included a slightly ‘Whitlamesque’ concern for fostering local ‘agency’ and expeditious outcomes without state involvement: ……
Public Service Act 2008 Section 24 Chapter 1 Introduction Part 2 The Queensland Public Service
What is a government entity
1. (a) a department or part of a department; or
2. (b) a public service office or part of a public service office; or
3. (c) an agency, authority, commission, corporation, instrumentality, office, or other entity, established under an Act or under State authorisation for a public or State purpose; or
4. (d) a part of an entity mentioned in paragraph (c); or
5. (e) another entity, or part of another entity, declared under a regulation to be a government entity; or
6. (f) a registry or other administrative office of a court of the State of any jurisdiction.
(2) However, each of the following entities is not a government entity— (a) a local government; etc
Therefore corporate Local government is like the corporate ATO which has no Commonwealth Constitutional authority and is therefore an agency of the Commonwealth and States. Local Government and ATO Acts are only corporate statutes, and only apply to the employees of that private company (Corporations Act 1990 Sec 8).

Mindless farmers continuing to support the LNP can expect more of the same
THE amount of foreign owned agricultural properties and water entitlements in Australia continues to skyrocket, with the newly released Foreign Investment Review Board (FIRB) figures for the 2019 financial year revealing nearly 20% of Queensland’s water entitlements are now foreign owned – a 6.7% increase in just one year.
Kennedy MP, Bob Katter said the figures made him sick to the stomach, but didn’t surprise him in the slightest knowing the traitors who were running the country.
“As outrageous as the figures are, they are wildly inaccurate,” he said.
“They don’t take into account the shareholding of Australian companies that belong to foreigners, which would make the overall foreign ownership of water entitlements and land much higher.”
The 2019 financial year FIRB report showed the amount of foreign held water entitlements in Australia was up by 1.9%, to 10.5% of overall water entitlements, and the number of agricultural properties with a level of foreign interest was up 3.8% to 9,044 properties nationwide.
Mr Katter introduced The Foreign Acquisitions and Takeovers Amendment (Strategic Assets) Bill 2020 to the Federal Parliament earlier this year to keep Aussie water, strategic assets and land in Aussie hands.
“If the Government has any sense of sovereignty or national pride they’ll bring on the Bill for a vote at the next sitting and support it,” he said.
“On behalf of the Australian people we say no more foreign ownership. Nearly everyone I meet is sick of the sale of our assets including the Port of Darwin, Ord Stage II and Stage III, much of the Murray-Darling Basin and four of our biggest farms.”

Letter to the Editor
The call by Mr Bob Katter to the purported Federal Government to restart an Australian car industry has fallen on deaf ears, just like pleas from thousands of intelligent Australians over the last 35 plus years who demanded that we build new power stations, irrigation dams, steel mills, metal refineries and a host of manufacturing industries.
This political criminal faction has instead facilitated the destruction of most of our agricultural industries and most of our manufacturing. My advice for the well intentioned Mr Katter is to save his breath.
Instead ask SCOMO to explain to the people why he wants to destroy the means of supporting our people.
Just like all the “governments” since Hawkes junta, SCOMO and ALBO are totally committed to the genocidal policies contained in the infamous UN Rio Bio Diversity Treaty, and it’s agenda for the 21st century. Labor and LNP endorsed it in 1992. They have never dared to tell this to the people. They wouldn’t last a day if they did.
The Paris accord organised by the Pope strengthened its nation destroying measures.These people are totally committed to participation in reducing (murdering) the world’s population to less than 500 million. This is worse than Hitler, Mao and Stalin combined. Exposure of this crime is of paramount importance.
MEMBERS of the federal Liberal National Party Government have voted against restarting Australia’s car manufacturing industry, and shutdown debate on the motion which was moved by Kennedy MP, Bob Katter.
Mr Katter said the end of the Holden brand was a national shame and a dark day for the country.
“The Government’s Free Trade agreements have destroyed our manufacturing industry,” he said.
“I called on the Government to re-establish an Australian car manufacturing industry with a majority Australian shareholding; and put relevant policies in place to ensure that all cars purchased under federal government contracts are made in Australia.
“When my father bought his first Holden he was so excited and he ran around exclaiming we Australians built this car! Now, we make nothing.”
Mr Katter said he was surprised but not shocked that the Government had not learnt any lessons about the need for self-sufficiency from the Coronavirus pandemic
“I think the Government MPs are getting increasingly more sensitive about the industries that they have shut down in this country,” he said.
“They have deregulated and destroyed the dairy, beef, eggs, maize, peanuts, fishing and tobacco industries.
“And their free-market policies have destroyed our manufacturing industries including white goods, TVs, cars, textiles, furniture, housing materials and petrol.
“The most recent example of their ideological stupidity was during this pandemic, when instead of buying antiseptic and sanitiser from Australian producers like United Petroleum and Manildra, the Government Health Departments and private sector imported it from China.”
Mr Katter’s motion followed a demonstration at the front of Parliament House this morning where a dozen classic Holden owners drove around in a procession, and spoke to the national media about their deep sadness over the Government’s ongoing policy to close manufacturing in Australia.
Mr Katter’s motion was defeated by the Government and he was gagged from speaking on it.
Mr Katter’s motion:
“That the House:
- Notes that:
- on the 17th February 2020, General Motors announced the retirement of the Holden Brand in Australia
- the government’s Free Trade agreements have destroyed our Australian manufacturing industry
- Acknowledges that the government must build our way out of a
COVID-19 economic depression with ‘make money’ projects
- Calls on the Government to:
- support the reestablishment of an Australian car manufacturing industry with a majority Australian shareholding; and
- put relevant policies in place to ensure that all cars purchased under federal government contracts are made in Australia.”
Economy destroyed by death from a thousand cuts
A false positive Coronavirus test of a 30 year old miner who had passed away from other causes, threw a family into turmoil at Blackwater 200 klms west of Rockhampton last week.
This morning the Queensland Premier Annastacia Palaszczuk apologised to Nathan Turner’s family for the stress the government had placed them under and to the people of Blackwater for emergency testing of the town’s 5100 residents, all of whom tested negative.
The foibles of the entire Coronahoax epidemic have been reinforced after eminent virologists world- wide have been calling in the efficacy of testing and control measures and indeed the diagnosis and existence of the virus itself.
The US Government owned Centre for Disease Control on its Covid 19 test kits has the disclaimer that the test is not accurate, and can show any bacterial infection, the common cold or flu.
The unnecessary shutdown of the economy will haunt the political party duopoly for a decade and the Premier, magnanimously this morning continued with the “how good am I” slow release of restrictions for businesses such as hotels, cafes, tourist venues and airlines to reopen.
The Premier, or moreover, the Chief Health Officer Dr Jeanette Young, purportedly has been managing the destruction of the economy by death from a thousand cuts.
A Labor insider told Cairnsnews the psyche of socialist psychopaths is not complete until those in charge can unleash a break-up of the normal order to replace it with a depopulated socialist Utopia which is totally controlled by the state.
The Democrats, Bernie Sanders, Joe Biden and George Soros presently trying to destroy America are supported across the Pacific by their brothers of the socialist Australian Broadcasting Corporation parroting the same Communist-controlled WHO script.
Not to be left out, ABC TV in a show of support for the deadly American Marxist upheaval, broadcast a Joe Biden, US paid election advertisement at 11 pm on May 29.
This societal breakdown has been achieved leaving many hundreds of thousands of employees across the Australian business sector wholly dependent on the state for income and medical care.
The state, as it is done in Communist China, dictates how far and to where you can travel provided your travel documents are in order and the number of patrons allowed in a venue. It forces you to stay locked up in your home, enforces nonsensical, ineffective ‘social distancing’ and enforces vaccination.
The LNP is complicit in this transformation to a Marxist dystopia and until the sheeples take a stance nothing will change for the better.
Young children today will never know the freedoms Australians and Americans had before and post- WW2, until the 1970’s coup by leftist PM Malcolm Fraser followed by the paedophile, Marxist, Labor union hack Bob Hawke who earnestly started the rot in 1983.
Bookmark June 22, 2020 as the day the citizens of 52 Commonwealth countries take back control of their destiny. Form a group and co-ordinate with the UK. No more unlawful government. Government belongs to the people not sheeple.
So far in Australia there are allegedly 5.8 million certifiable sheeple who loaded a laughable phone tracing app; that leaves 19 million thinkers who could be a fighting force. Are you one of them?
Federal member for Kennedy in Far North Queensland, Bob Katter said the next person to talk about Australia’s ‘clean, green image’ should be shot by the firing squad, after the Agriculture Minister axed a biosecurity levy designed to protect Australian farmers from pests and diseases.
“We are a net importer of fruit and vegetables, I repeat a net importer, and we are bringing in fruit and vegetables from across the world,” he said.
“If you have no border protection and check only 0.1% of the products coming in (that’s one grape in a thousand), then you are hardly clean and green.
“Ultimately every single disease foreign countries have, we will have.
“This has proven to be true in recent times with the introduction of noxious pests and diseases like the Fall Armyworm, banana-destroying Panama disease, and the destruction of prawn farming from White Spot disease.
“Quarantine has virtually been abolished in Australia; it is farcical.”
The KAP policy is to implement a 10% charge on everything coming into the country.
“That is to pay for the necessary policing of a country with one of the world’s largest coastlines,” he said.
“We have no protection currently. That levy would boost our biosecurity operation.”
‘You can check out any time you like but you can never leave…..’
Australian Prime Minister Scott Morrison’s continual support of New World Order policies to turn us into a full-blown police state has exposed his cover by forcing citizens to download a phone tracker app.
The tracking app is under development and Morrison says at least 40 per cent of phone users would have to download it to make it effective.
Daily we see the Coronavirus, which has proven to be less deadly than the common flu in Australia, dropping off the chart since it peaked last week. After a total over-reaction by state governments to the viral threat, a lot of people are asking “what is the real agenda here?”
While we are aware of US President Donald Trump’s ongoing campaign to drain the swamp, Australia’s Deep State as far as we can ascertain, largely have not yet been caught up in Trump’s net which so far has captured immense international pornography rings and reportedly released many thousands of young children trapped by pedophiles in the US.
Naturally the mainstream fake media won’t report on these world news matters but fortunately we have the alternative media which keeps citizens in the loop.
The national agenda as far as we can see is to keep people locked up at home for as long as possible. Before the exit plans start to kick in Scomo and the state Premiers plan to introduce a compulsory vaccine program which will be interfaced with your phone tracking app and control your access to digital banking and government services. Cash, ie, legal tender, soon will become a medium of the past.
The federal government already has admitted as much. Some researchers have established Google’s Bill Gates is up to his eyeballs in vaccine manufacturing and Google has developed software to merge every citizen’s phone, internet identities and facial recognition from driver’s licences, passports and the millions of 5G street cameras into one huge data bank.
Dumbed-down citizenry will be begging for the ‘mark of the beast.’
Facebook, Instagram, Twitter and all the other social media platforms have already amassed and stored this information and it probably in is the data bank awaiting official sanction from the federal government.
Bang! Then we will be monitored with 24/7 surveillance and be welcomed by the Hotel California aka the One World Government.
“Last thing I remember running to the door,
I had to find the passage back to the place I was before,

An interview with British medical journalist Phillip Day
April 10, 2020
ECHN: Morning, Phillip. How have things shaped up in your mind over the past week?
PHILLIP DAY: Morning Kevin. Glad you asked. I’ve stopped regarding the CoVid situation as any sort of drill. Mandatory vaccines are now on the table, courtesy of Bill Gates and a begging public. People are policing each other, which is exactly what the Evilarchy intends. And I’m out in the garden at the moment, but I’ve run out of compost.
ECHN: Summarise in a nutshell.
PHILLIP DAY: Alright. Depending on which country you’re in, the government is using a virus with a 98% survival rate (which no-one I know has caught yet) to shut down the country, destroy the economy, put millions of businesses at risk, throw countless millions of trusting people into anxiety, fear and depression, and introduce the most draconian legislation in living memory to limit movement and even what you can and can’t say on social media. Does this make sense?
ECHN: I don’t think I need to answer that. A cure should never be far worse than the disease.
PHILLIP DAY: How about if the ‘cure’ kills the patient, as we saw with AIDS, and as we see daily with cancer and a host of other problems? Anyone not familiar with how you can create a global ‘viral’ catastrophe out of thin air needs to remember the unveiling of ‘viral’ AIDS and read my book, The Truth About HIV. With CoVid, as Dr Shiva points out, it’s literally the same players and the same gameplan, only this time, what we’re witnessing is a full-on global coup d’état.
ECHN: Who are the players and what’s the agenda?
PHILLIP DAY: I’ll get to them in a minute. First, let me address some current concerns. People ARE dying of respiratory problems, I never said they weren’t. In Britain, we’re still not even half way (7978) towards the average number of deaths (c. 17,000 – 28,330 in 2014/15) that usually occur in the UK from seasonal flu. Jon Rappoport covers the misreporting of data, for example, from Italy here, and how straightforward it is to create the illusion of a pandemic with testing here, especially if you have a controlled media who’ll gleefully print whatever their masters tell them to.(some Australian media is as bad as US Fake News outlets)
ECHN: And what are we’re hearing every day? We need to test. We need to test, test, test!
PHILLIP DAY: Of course. Because that’s the quack science they can wave in front of the public and yell, “See? We’re right, you conspiracy nutjobs.” Once again, let me bring the reader back to the central point: We’re destroying our society — all we’ve fought for and built over the centuries – purely on the basis of what we’re told by medical charlatans (Ferguson, Fauci, etc.) might happen in the future. These – let me call them people — have a proven track record I’ve covered before of hype and misrepresentation. Once again, look at AIDS and the other stillborn pandemics we’ve seen over the past few decades if you want proof of how they’re doing this. Look at Foot and Mouth Disease (bad cold for a cow). As usual, the world public largely goes along with it all, after all, these are ‘experts’ telling us this. In my village, the usual crop of Warden Hodge clones (Dad’s Army) are out on the streets policing us all. These fully masked-up jokers want the government to do MORE! Because it has to be the virus, right? Reminds me of what I read about 1930s Germany.
ECHN: But people ARE dying of respiratory problems. And there was Boris Johnson.
PHILLIP DAY: They certainly are. And I’m glad that at the time of writing, Boris is much improved, but again we don’t know the state of his immune system, vitamin D level, what drugs he was given, etc. Poor guy was probably thrashed immunity-wise coming out of both the winter and the election. Once again, I know it’s really hard to accept, but people get the flu between Nov and April EACH YEAR and THOUSANDS DIE. Every death is a tragedy for the families and friends involved. The crucial part is, up to now we haven’t filmed them on respirators and battered the public senseless with fear about it to the degree we’re seeing now. We’re given no real, useful information. You’re not told people are being put on the harshest ‘antiviral’ drugs (we saw those with AIDS). We’re not told who’s dying of regular flu as opposed to CoVid. We also need to listen to those top medical figures who are breaking ranks and coming out at great risk to their professional reputations to speak out.
ECHN: I passed a man in the supermarket yesterday who was done up in what looked like a home-made HazMat suit.
PHILLIP DAY: People are frightened while I’m an Angry Citizen. Once again, let me remind people of Adam Weishaupt’s famous quote (Illuminati founder), “O Mortal Man! Is there anything you cannot be made to believe?”
ECHN: The analogy you quoted of the elephant and the housecat stayed with me.
PHILLIP DAY: Perfectly summarises where we are at present. An elephant (us) is being attacked by a housecat (the dreaded, deadly, Lethal, KILLER VIRUS), and the elephant becomes so terrified it falls off a cliff. Well, as we talk today, the terrified elephant is teetering on the edge of the economy precipice.
ECHN: So, bottom line?
PHILLIP DAY: In my view what we’re witnessing is an attempted Pharma/Gates/Globalist/Deep-State global coup d’état of the money system and national government in general, and I’m by no means alone in stating that. ‘Deep State’ is an overused term to described unelected, monied or powered interests. These have been quite vocal over the years in their desire for global government to run the modern world, but it hasn’t really been possible until now. With the new 5G Internet of Things currently being installed at lightning speed, the tracking and control capabilities for those in charge are truly concerning. And that’s before you look at the health concerns.
ECHN: Was Britain leaving the EU a major blow to the European superstate part of this plan?
PHILLIP DAY: Yes. The Evilarchy isn’t getting things all their own way. You could spot the globalists as the UK Remainers who wouldn’t quit, even when they lost the EU Referendum. I hardly believe it a coincidence that CoVid popped up in a big way not weeks after we left the EU. I watched the killer virus bubbling malevolently in the wings in China, probably to see how things would turn out in the UK election, or whether Trump would be impeached. Now, their evil plans are in jeopardy and it’s in their interests to crash the global money system and replace it with a digital system in an attempt to seize control. Why do you think they’ve been closing all the banks? Won’t need ‘em.
ECHN: We had Gordon Brown the other day crying for a global government to save the world.
PHILLIP DAY: And Blair. Anyone who’s done any research knows global government is the single most dangerous idea imaginable for the simple reason that there are no checks and balances to such ultimate power.
ECHN: And you’re assuming the global government would not be benign.
PHILLIP DAY: Yup. As the old cliché goes: Power corrupts. And absolute power corrupts absolutely.
ECHN: Is anyone in power opposing this?
PHILLIP DAY: I’ve been consulting researchers in the political field who are better positioned than I to comment. The silent war that’s happening right now, according to some, is between The Globalists, comprising the aforementioned powers, and a diametrically opposed cabal, you can loosely term The Nationalists. The latter could comprise such diverse characters as Trump, Putin, Xi Jingping, maybe even Boris (I feared for him when he was in ICU). Notice how Putin and Xi aggregated longterm powers to themselves. While the West cried ‘Dictators!’ it’s not beyond possible that this was an effective measure to keep out the globalists.
ECHN: And there’s that move on the Federal Reserve.
PHILLIP DAY: Yes. Many don’t know that Trump recently put the Federal Reserve under control of the US Treasury. So the new Fed chairman is none other than Donald J Trump. This is a major blow to the monied interests. What people reading this need to know is that there are powers attempting to sort this out. There are two reasons a government might order its citizens to stay indoors. One, so citizens don’t see what’s going on in the neighbourhood. Or Two, to keep them safe from what’s coming down, and I don’t mean THE KILLER VIRUS. It struck me that Passover/Easter is now upon us. Could be symbolic in a number of ways.
ECHN: Go on.
PHILLIP DAY: Passover was when God ordered the Jews into their dwellings in Egypt and told them not to come out while the Death Angel went to work on the rest. I’m not prophesying, but I also never write off of a major clear-out. It’s all too easy to think all is lost.
ECHN: How do you see this all playing out?
PHILLIP DAY: Hard to say. It could be that lockdown is lifted soon and we go back to ‘normal’, but not the old normal. The new normal will be citizens going back indoors if ever the wicked KILLER VIRUS emerges to haunt us again. We’ve had our political, democratic, and for many, their spiritual power ravaged by what has happened. The other scenario is that the putsch continues and we pitch into a full-blown collapse of the global money system, already deliberately weakened by hyperinflation.
ECHN: From which the world emerges into the New Order and all that might entail.
PHILLIP DAY: Correct. Don’t know about you, but I’ve got my popcorn. Just no compost.
Scott Morrison PM gives the banks total control over the population
The Labor Party now owns the cash ban law. They have “Albowed” Morrison and the government aside to take charge of the law that, stripped to its essence, will jail Australians for not using banks.
Australians should call Albo and every Labor MP and Senator and demand to know why.
Labor MPs will scream till they are blue in the face that it’s not their law, it’s Morrison’s, but that’s a cop-out. Labor has the numbers to stop this bill, but instead they have fallen in behind the government to recommend in the final report of the Senate inquiry, released Friday, that Parliament pass the bill.
The most disappointing and dishonest part of Labor supporting the final report, and not issuing a dissenting report as the Greens did (an excellent job), is that it was Labor Senator Kimberley Kitching, who was on the Senate inquiry, who tweeted last Monday, 24 February:
“On the Senate committee looking at this, I was waiting for govt to provide evidence that their #cashban would actually impact current law-breakers (e.g. drug-dealers) rather than just inconvenience the elderly and people who don’t like banks. So far… nothing.”
So how on Earth can Kitching and Labor turn around and support the bill?!
The final report has eight recommendations, most of which are weak. For instance, they recommend reviewing the penalties for one-off as opposed to repeat offenders, but not the draconian jail sentences, which no other country with cash restrictions has. And they recommend moving the exemption for personal and private transactions, i.e. cash gifts to family members and buying a car from a friend, from the regulation, which is easy to change, into the bill, which is hard to change, but they don’t recommend doing the same for withdrawing money from the bank—this exemption is still in the regulation and remains easy for the Minister to drop, effectively trapping people in banks.
The overall problem with these recommendations is they don’t make the bill more effective in combatting the black economy; they are only intended to make the bill slightly more palatable to the Australian public. They can’t make the bill more effective because the government couldn’t provide evidence this law was necessary in the first place, as Labor Senators demonstrated, which is why it should have been rejected outright.
Will Labor insist on the recommendations, or cave?
There is, however, one recommendation that could potentially defeat this policy, but only if Labor insists on it! In the list of eight recommendations, the first is that “the government review existing powers and trends in the digital economy to assess whether the bill is the most effective response to the black economy”. In other words, the government should review whether this law is even necessary, and if it would work.
If implemented, this recommendation would significantly delay the cash ban bill, and possibly even end it altogether, because a genuine review would prove that the claims of KPMG’s Black Economy Taskforce, which recommended the cash ban, were dishonest. That report is a fraud: the late Michael Andrew who chaired the Taskforce—the only Australian to ever rise to global chair of a big four international accounting firm, KPMG, which is notorious for helping its clients in megabanks and multinational corporations evade tax and launder money to the tune of tens and hundreds of billions—had the supreme arrogance and gall to characterise the black economy as a blue-collar problem! His report pinned the blame for tax evasion in the black economy on the likes of tradies, hairdressers, nannies, personal trainers and gardeners, while absolving his former multinational business and its corporate clients. Worse, this report shows that Labor, supposedly the party of blue-collar workers, swallowed it.
It would be shocking to most Australians that this Senate report is not binding on the government, even though it’s from the government’s own committee. And even though Labor politicians signed off on the final report too, the Labor Party is also not bound by it. It is entirely possible for the government to reject the recommendations in the report, and for Labor to cave and support the bill anyway.
The question is: will Labor at least insist on the recommendations, or will they cave, and be responsible for a law that jails Australians for not using banks?
Call Parliament and demand answers
It is crucial that we keep the heat on politicians over this report, and this week flood politicians in Canberra with calls demanding they account for this report. All politicians are in Parliament this week, so the calls people make will be amplified. Here is who must be called:
- Assistant Treasurer Michael Sukkar, who is the Minister responsible for this law. Demand to know what the government’s response to the committee report will be, and whether it will accept all the recommendations. Ph: (02) 6277 7230 Email: Minister.Sukkar@treasury.gov.au
- Labor leader Anthony Albanese. Demand to know:
- Why is it Labor’s policy to jail Australians for not using banks?
- Why is Labor supporting this law even though their own Senators proved there’s no evidence for it?
- Will Labor even insist on all the recommendations, or will it cave and pass it anyway? Ph: (02) 6277 4022 Email: Anthony.Albanese.MP@aph.gov.au
- All Labor Senators and MPs. Ask them the same questions as Albanese, about Labor’s cash ban law to jail Australians for not using banks. Click here for a list of all Senators; click here to search for your MP on Parliament’s website.

The LNP/Labor duopoly strikes again-gone will be your savings under the Bail-in laws as soon as interest rates hit zero. The banks, thanks to new laws passed by the LNP before Christmas can take your savings from your bank accounts to prop up their viability in the upcoming depression enabled and orchestrated by the trojan horse Coronavirus pandemic. Remember the Greek banks stole the deposits of their customers three years ago.
Most intelligent Australians know this $10,000 cash ban has nothing to do with curbing drug dealers’ cash flow. It is all about control. Scomo has been compromised by Hillsong church activities and is simply doing the bidding of the City of London for the New World Order. – Editor
Mr Katter will purchase gold bullion with more than $10,000 cash ($40,000 of gold and cash will change hands); an act that will soon be illegal under proposed laws.
The implementation of the Restriction on Cash Bill, currently before the Senate, significantly abolishes our right to “Legal Tender” – a right enjoyed for a millennium. Property rights and privacy are undermined.
