Big Brother now wants to control your mind with a 5G network. This is scary, read the entire article:
Find out why 5G is the basis for the IoT (Internet of Things): a complete, inescapable technological control grid manipulating the human energy field.
By Makia Freeman
5G is being rolled out fast right now, with Verizon testing it out in 11 US cities and ATT also conducting experiments. For those who don’t know, 5G is the latest wireless system that telecommunications companies are trying to implement to service wireless communication. It’s designed to allow faster downloads of more data. It uses the 28, 37 and 39 GHz bands, also known as millimetre wave (mmW) spectrum. 5G, which comes from the term 5th generation, is designed to work in conjunction with what former CIA head David Petraeus called the Internet of Things or IoT. The agenda is to hook every single material thing on the planet, as well as humans themselves, onto a vast planet-wide web where everything and everyone become nodes on the network – connected by microchips which are nano-size and can be inhaled (like smart dust).
Many people are encouraging the advancement of 5G by their desire at all costs for convenience and speed (give me my multiple gigabit downloads now!). People are foolishly valuing this over privacy, safety and health. 5G is not merely an upgrade of wireless infrastructure; it is a giant leap towards the erection and installation of a total technological control grid. The agenda is to cover the entire Earth – including rural areas – with the 5G electromagnetic blanket, so that its effects can literally not be escaped by anyone living on this planet.
FCC Chairman Tom Wheeler’s Scary Speech
If I haven’t got your attention yet, please take a look at this video, where FCC (Federal Communications Commission) head Tom Wheeler lays out how 5G is going to happen – consequences be damned. At the 2:42 mark, the video goes through an edited version of his June 2016 speech at the National Press Club in Washington DC. From my perspective, Wheeler appears more than just intense or defiant; he borders on the psychopathic. This guy is another former corporate lobbyist using the good old “revolving door” at the top of the business-political world. He now occupies a key governmental office to promote the agenda of his former industry (telecommunications). He is advocating the rollout of a game-changing technology (with toxic and cancerous side effects for some) that’s going to affect all life on Earth, but he doesn’t want to wait for safety standards. Later on the video, Wheeler ignores and dodges questions about the wireless radiation-cancer connection.
Here’s a summary of his points:
– 5G will penetrate material objects better: thanks to “brilliant engineers”, 5G radiation will be even harder to shield yourself against;
– 5G will be infrastructure-intensive: the plan is to erect even more radiating towers in every corner of the planet, adding a new meaning to the concept of electromagnetic soup;
– 5G will make tens of billions of dollars for its owners through “unanticipated and unintended” consequences (after this point, Wheeler slams his fist on the podium and says, “That’s damn important”);
– 5G is going to go ahead without the FCC waiting for governmental standards (Wheeler proudly proclaims that “unlike other countries”, the US cares about being “first out of the gate” (i.e. economically). He suggests we “turn innovators loose” rather than wait for committees to decide things. He defiantly declares that, “We won’t wait for the standards”);
– 5G will require the sharing of frequencies with the military;
– 5G is the technological basis for the IoT (Wheeler states that “hundreds of millions of microchips” will be in everything [and everyone if they get their way]);
– All parts of the Earth will be covered, so there will be urban and rural radiation saturation.
Welcome news from the Liberal and Labor church of free trade – Adam Smith would be proud of Mr Turnbull, Mr Shorten and their Uruguay DOFAT mandarins
Today the Queensland Government has confirmed White Spot virus has been found in wild prawns in Moreton Bay off Brisbane and now cannot be stopped.
KAP Member for Kennedy, Bob Katter said, “I congratulate the Government of the Australia with their Free Trade policies and no quarantine.
“Our prawn industry has been sacrificed on the altar of Free Trade.
“Not only all our industries have been exported overseas, and our jobs exported overseas but you’ve imported workers from overseas, which has been a cancer upon our pay and conditions and job opportunities in Australia — but now you’ve succeeded in destroying our oceans.
“Because the currents flow north, White Spot will now be taken up the Qld coast and infect the Great Barrier Reef.
“This was done with eyes wide open.
“Every single person associated with the prawn industry and every scientist who ever looked at this knew if you brought the prawns in, you’d bring the White Spot in… and the IHHNV and heaven only knows which hundreds of other diseases we haven’t identified…and these damn people in Canberra run around talking about our clean green image,” said Mr Katter.
The Australian Prawn Farmers Association (APFA) President Matt West owns a prawn farm in the Mackay region. In a media report from January this year, Mr West says although his stock are some distance from the Sth East Qld region damaged by the outbreak, the disease can spread rapidly, “especially if it gets hold in the wild”.
NB: Cairns News published an exclusive story on January 10, 2107 about Chinese prawn importer Sino deliberately altering prawn samples for biosecurity testing. The company has been charged by Federal Police for falsifying records allowing white spot infected prawns to be introduced into Queensland. Imported green prawns infected with white spot virus used by anglers for fish bait are thought to have infected seven Gold Coast prawn farms and now Moreton Bay near Brisbane.
This review below from the Vaccine Information Service when read should be sufficient to bury the lying, misleading and harmful Australian Medical Association which claims vaccines are safe for all, including little babies.
What rot and the sooner Turnbull and wife Lucy are removed from the top job the better.
Lucy Turnbull is a major shareholder in a vaccine company, and the Prime Minister’s unlawful blackmail of unsuspecting parents who will be prevented from admitting their unvaccinated kids to child care and schools must be stopped. Section 51 (xxiiA) of the Commonwealth Constitution of Australia prevents enforced mass medication by government.
“The sooner one of the anti-vax groups starts a class action the better.”

|Below is a list of ingredients in vaccines. (It is not exhaustive – there are other chemicals not in the list.)
If you are tempted to assume that these poisons would only be in harmless quantities in vaccines, note:
1) There is no safe level for some of these poisons, such as formaldehyde and mercury, even if one of them was consumed or injected on its own.
2) Even if the quantity of any given ingredient was within a safe level, remember that a large number of these are being taken in all at once, which can lead to the accumulative toxicity being much higher.
Katter calls for minor parties to come together & don’t forget the Culleton factor
KAP Member for Kennedy, Bob Katter watched Pauline Hanson’s One Nation Party’s performance in the Western Australia (WA) election closely. It is Mr Katter’s little party, the KAP – who stand to gain or lose the most from One Nation’s performance in the looming Qld election.
Mr Katter said, “Anyone in Qld who thinks One Nation is dead in the water is badly misreading the situation. The LNP is toxic in WA, but the difference in Qld is, so is the ALP (as well as the LNP).
“The disaster of One Nation giving all their preferences to Liberals, and voting with them all the time in Canberra… (This brought down Tony Windsor who was always voting with the ALP), One Nation is beginning to look like a LNP lamb in wolf’s ‘Third Force’ clothing, the Hanson Party must realise the reason people vote for them is because they’re not one of the majors.
“But when in Canberra, One Nation has taken a stand on the following (and these were all burning issues):
“Came out against a banking Royal Commission,
“Came out in support for the sale of Kidman to Shanghai Cred (whoever their partners are is irrelevant),
“Voted for the Bash up the Workers Legislation (ABCC),
“Voted for the Bash up the Farmers and Tourist Operators legislation (the Backpackers Tax).
“Not only does this portray One Nation as an LNP supporter, but it portrays them as LNP.
“But if you look like a duck and quack like a duck, then you will get shot like a duck.
“We would like One Nation not to duck, but listen to calm, reasoned and experienced counsel. This is the kind of counsel we always reply upon.
“Also, people have underestimated the reaction to throwing WA Senator Rodney Culleton out of the Senate. Cool heads would have seen the disastrous ramifications of this.
“We shall be urging all of the Third Force parties in Australia, whatever their strengths and weaknesses, to come together.
“All the little parties have one strength in common; they were not the ones who exported our industries and jobs overseas and imported workers into Australia to take what’s left of our jobs. That was (believe it or not) mostly the ALP, and most certainly the LNP.
“It will be a great tragedy for this nation if the Xenophons and Lambies, the KAPs and all the other non-major parties do not have a coming together.
“Our strengths are in our differences but one thing we all have in common is we tenaciously oppose the extremism of the Free Market ideologues and their privatisation, de-regulation and globalisation.
“To the people of QLD, don’t worry about WA; you’ve made a decision to leave the majors and as the Johnathan Thurston and his NQ Cowboys say — stay in the fight!”
Labor and Liberal ignore creating a Reserve Resource Policy
In media reports today, the Prime Minister said the revelations are “very concerning” and he’ll be holding an urgent meeting of chief executives of east coast gas companies to find out, “how they plan to address this threat to their customers.”
KAP Member for Kennedy, Bob Katter will be introducing into Parliament a Bill to enact a Reserve Resource Policy, (a policy where some of the gas is kept for Australians).
Mr Katter said, “We’ve already instructed the Parliamentary Draftsman to move on the Bill.
“We will be having discussions with a number of key players in the industry. We feel that there are at least three Government Members who will stand up on this issue.
“Almost every fertiliser producing country on earth (di-ammonium phosphate) has a Reserve Resource Policy. They get the ammonia (natural gas) for three or four dollars but Australian fertiliser companies are paying nearly 15 dollars.
“We have a steel industry with threatened closure, copper refineries closing, aluminium expansions abandoned, nickel refineries closed.
“And the Government’s answer is to call a meeting with Mr Foreign Gas Corporation? ‘Oh please, can you please give us some of our gas?’ We won’t be asking – we will be telling them!
“We will see if any of the LNP Members have the guts to stand up for Australian industry and Australian workers or if they’re going to be a bunch of cowards.
“The PM’s bleating is humiliating for all of ‘we Australians’ putting the begging-bowl out to giant foreign gas corporations who are not there to provide security of supply. They are there to maximise profits from the gas that we gave them for virtually nothing.
“It sure would be nice if an LNP person stood up on Economic Sovereignty where some of them will die in the ditches on social policy. It sure would be nice if they would show the same commitment on Economic Sovereignty and the morality of selling all of our resources to foreign corporations so that the southern states are left shivering in winter and the north swelters in summer. Neither can afford to pay the prices that gas owners (all foreign corporations) are charging Australians for their own gas.
“Huey Long, the 40th Governor of Louisiana was the most popular politician in human history. He introduced a Reserve Resource Policy on Louisiana’s gas so the people of the Louisiana were entitled to that gas for no more than the cost of production.
“In Qld under the much maligned Bjelke-Petersen Government, we had a Reserve Resource Policy. The bulk of Qld’s electricity came from overburdened coal which the Government took for free under a Reserve Resource Policy. Qld had the cheapest electricity in the world and we were the biggest mineral processing state on earth: aluminium, nickel, zinc, copper…
“Now Qld is on the National Grid and pays National Competition Policy prices and so we suffer the second highest electricity prices in the world.
“Successive governments have brought us to this impasse: no manufacturing, no mineral processing, and some of the highest electricity prices in the world.
“Pensioners can have a feed or turn the lights on; but they can’t do both. That’s of course when you can get the electricity to turn on. It will become increasingly unreliable.
“As Minister (in the QLD Government), we kept a 30 per cent spending reserve in electricity. We had transmission lines that enabled the 30 per cent reserve in almost every part of the state. We had absolute security of supply. We could lose six of our 22 major generating units and not a have single light out in Qld.
“Under national competition policy there is no guarantee of supply on the grid. Prices have gone up 300 per cent in 15 years. In the 30 years prior to that, prices only went up a little over 30.”
Validity of the Australia Act 1986 comes into play
Litigants in all four levels of Australian courts have long complained about spending sometimes hundreds of thousands of dollars for lawyers and counsel to wade through thousands of pages of the Corporation law or any other law only to have a single judge throw out their case.
This time around a high profile victim of judicial chicanery, the erstwhile senator, Rod Culleton, wants natural justice after his brush with a bankruptcy finding.
A single judge of The High Court of Australia, or the Federal Supreme Court, on March 2, 2017 struck out Culleton’s appeal against bankruptcy, previously handed down by the Full Bench of the Federal Court.
“I am outraged and disappointed Justice Patrick Keane of the High Court did not ever read my written submissions yet he handed down his finding in spite of me asking for more time to prepare,” Mr Culleton said.
Coincidentally, March 2, 2017 was the 12 month anniversary when he was convicted of larceny in absentia in the Armidale Magistrates Court over the disappearance of a truck key worth $7.50, a charge for which he would not ever have been jailed.
“My counsel clearly told Justice Keane that the High Court did not have jurisdiction to deal with my position in the senate,” he said.
“Counsel told the court only the senate could deal with it and Justice Keane only had to read Section 47 of the Constitution which says any question over the qualification of a senator or a member of either House, ‘….shall be determined by the House in which the question arises.’
“The High Court says it gets its power from the unlawful Australia Act 1986 which was introduced two years after a referendum of Australian people said they did not want the Commonwealth to give its powers to the States.
“This referendum failed but here we have the High Court using powers the states should not have such as the denial of juries.”
The senate should be dealing with the validity of the Australia Act 1986 and this would result in Western Australia getting its fair share of GST revenue and preventing the sale of Australian freehold land to foreign governments.
“The people continue to say no to foreign buyers but the Liberals and Labor keep selling off our land,” he said.
“There is a huge cloud over the judicial system and my matter should be used as an example in the senate to clean it up.”
Comment from a reader, Howard, which is worthy of publication:
To hell with them alright, they are unfaithful usurpers and abusers of power who themselves will not acknowledge or respect law unless it is their own invention but they claim the claims of true law yet not only ignore their vows to the queen who evidently sets the example by ignoring her vows to God (legislatively recognised as the Lord Jesus Christ) and together they walk hand in hand with the Vatican to enforce legislated law that has been invented in parliament by a code that recognises the roman pontiff as God and thus, these usurpers embrace and endorse the very entity that once was universally recognised as the anti Christ eg true enemy of the legitimate head of the true and legitimate commonwealth. Whilst brutally enforcing their law they claim the authority from which their law comes doesn’t really matter. We have been manipulated into a western roman government system but in fact our legitimate government should be decidedly Christian , thus we are meant to have rights and to be ruled by moral principle but instead commercial contracts are being brutally and deceptively forced on us and that is what happened to our right of self determination. Once we are manipulated into the situation where an accused is considered guilty unless they prove otherwise as is typical of many state penalty based systems like traffic fines, then we have lost self determination. It means you can wake in the morning having stayed at home and ‘determined’ to not get involved in anything, yet, another can accuse you and you are required to defend or pay up. In such a situation (for example) you have no say in your involvement and no determination in your life, the state takes over.
One of the most ambitious eco-resort and housing developments seen in the Far North outside of the mooted Aquis venture in Cairns seems set to go ahead if the proponents get their way.
The proposed $650 million Kur-World resort at Kuranda held an open day at the 600 ha site on February 18, to showcase the project to local property owners and the public.
A timeline for the project recently released by the developers reveals consultants Reever and Ocean will deliver the draft Environmental Impact Statement in August this year.
Local property owners are relishing its release in September when it will be available for public consultation.
More than 70 people, many local, attended the property inspection where much interest was shown in the new dam, now full, that caused a lot of angst last year when it broke its bank during rain.
In November this year the EIS is expected to gain approval from the Queensland Coordinator General.
Chief Operations Officer Harry Sou said the Environmental Impact Study was the key to the project’s success indicating that their investors would be wary of any adverse findings.
“They will need surety,” he said.
Mr Sou said the development would be entirely self-sufficient and would not be a financial burden on any Mareeba Shire Council ratepayers.
“We will give preference to local tradesmen and material suppliers and do not propose to bring in any outside labour,” Mr Sou said.
In view of recent speculation after the failed 1500 pupil Standard Bearers Academy at Mareeba in 2015, Mr Sou stressed the makeup of the 500 student educational facility would be across the board, comprising Australian and international students, not from one country.
“We will lease out the faculty to either James Cook University, Central Queensland University, Latrobe or another Australian university,” he said.
“A part of the agreement with the faculty will ensure that we won’t try to market the unique courses in one country. The image is international.
“There will be boarders and day students with a focus on agriculture, green tourism, hospitality, environmental and organic courses.
“The business model has to survive, be sustainable and it would be way too sensitive to attract one group – it will be very versatile.”
Visitors toured a large organic vegetable garden growing a wide variety of normal and exotic plants watered by one of six bores on the property.
Project Manager Mark Lawson said organic farming would be a main feature of the green image, with the ability to supply vegetables for the resort.
The open day was not all beer and skittles when some pertinent questions about the adequacy of public infrastructure were directed at the Environmental Coordinator Neil Boland during his presentation.
Local protesters, members of the Kuranda Region Planning Group complained the strata development of 373 villas would place a huge burden on local facilities, in particular the water supply.
They maintained that residents mostly relied on bore water although there was some town supply available.
Nearby land owner Tanya Vickers warned the development was a threat to the lifestyles of all Kuranda inhabitants.
“The facilities like water, power and roads are insufficient and people will lose part of their properties to widen roads,” Ms Vickers claimed.
Responding, the Infrastructure Manager Nathan Lee Long said it was too early to predict what the outcomes of the EIS would be, and that he could not advise what effect it would have on local properties.
President of Kuranda Envirocare, Cathy Retter has long held reservations about the size of the resort and its social impact on the nearby and wider communities.
“We conducted a poll and we have had 400 responses so far. About 90 per cent were either somewhat against or strongly against the residential development,” Ms Retter said.
“These three bedroom villas will have to sell for around $750,000 and there are 373 proposed by 2023, with about 2000 residents using the Kuranda Range Road.
“The Initial Advice Statement said the resort will not have any impact on the range road, but add in 500 students and staff, of course it will.”
The developers hope to market the strata-titled villas locally, interstate and overseas and will be built in three stages over six years.
“We are going to work out what we would like to see with social and environmental outcomes,” Ms Retter said.
“There should be standards they are adhering to and a level of responsible stewardship.”
No adequate political representation for the Far North after ECQ and ALP gerrymandered northern seats to Brisbane. Consequently the new State of North Queensland is in the making
The Electoral Commission of Queensland, a Brisbane-based bureaucracy headed by H W H Botting has long defended itself against corruption allegations and again has come into the spotlight after a State electoral redistribution moved several key northern seats to Brisbane.
The Labor orientated ECQ cries independent but long suffering voters outside of the south east corner of the State have been crapped all over by its ALP and LNP driven agenda for decades.
Released today, the ECQ has engineered a gerrymander of monumental proportions removing Katters Australia Party Shane Knuth’s seat of Dalrymple stretching from Atherton in the north to the southern mining town of Moranbah in the Coalfields.
The last time the effective and independent member Rosa Lee Long threatened the status quo of the LNP and ALP, her seat of Tablelands was abolished by the ECQ in 2009.
Far North people are sick and tired of being the political football for the LNP and the ALP. Cairns News has no doubt many thousands of voters who have depended on Shane Knuth for his astute representation will protest to the ECQ during the public comment period.
Several contributors to Cairns News have already suggested that the entire population of the Far North refuse to vote at the next State election.
The people should take a line on the map north of the Tropic of Capricorn and tell the south east corner Labor and Liberal politicians and their public servants to go to hell – the north is creating its own state, we don’t need you, one contributor said.
The Mt Isa electorate will now take in Charters Towers in a ploy to spread its highly effective member Robbie Katter wafer thin across an electorate nearly twice the size of Victoria.
Robbie Katter says the re-mapping of the boundaries is another blow for rural representation.
He has constantly pushed against further expansion to rural seats and had hoped for more adequate representation in regional areas.
“The major parties have got what they wanted, in particular the ALP,” he said.
“Adequate representation means that each person has the opportunity to meet and shake hands with their local member.”
“It’s a shame the new seats being created are closer to metropolitan areas, not in western areas where it’s already difficult for the local member to get around their massive electorates.”
Mr Katter said the proposed changes meant that the Mount Isa electorate will lose Diamantina and Winton Shire boundaries, of less than 2,000 people combined, while taking in the Charters Towers Regional Council, with a population in excess of about 12,000 people.
“I’m very concerned that we’ll continue to see people with no idea what it’s like to live out west, making decisions about how we use our land and water.”
“That’s a nett gain of approximately 10,000 people for the local member to represent.”
“The people of these smaller rural towns, that already struggling, need more representation, not less.”
“We need to make sure that everything is being done to ensure adequate representation in rural and regional areas.”
Mr Katter was disappointed the rural areas would miss out once again.
“The major parties have got what they wanted which is less representation in regional areas,” he said.
“It’s another example of rural areas being overlooked.”
“With less representation in the bush we’ll continue to see policies focussed on cities.”

Netherlands-based bank Rabobank with the aid of an armada of government-paid enforcers arriving in government vehicles along with grubby receivers Ferrier Hodgson heavied Noeline Bradshaw and her son Neil to get off their cattle property, Ballabay north of Pentland.
Noelene and Neil were arrested by several violent officers and marched off to the paddy wagon
Although the receivers and Rabobank representatives indicated they would go to the negotiating table after a court appearance on Thursday, in order to avoid a welcoming party at the property they did not arrive on Monday February 20 as they had indicated.
Instead they arrived in military style on Wednesday, with enforcers blocking the entry road and threatening any media or supporters with arrest if they tried to enter.
Ferrier Hodgson were supposed to remove the family on “voluntary terms” as they had suggested.
It appears they did not wish to have any other parties present when removing the entire family.
Neil Bradshaw owns cattle on the property that are not mortgaged to Rabobank. He previously circulated descriptions and brands of his cattle to all livestock agents and meatworks warning them not to deal with the cattle.
This sorry saga of a foreign bank dispossessing honest, hard-working Australians from their properties is completely sanctioned by the LNP and Labor Party.
Banking industry sources believe Rabobank is acting in league with coal and gas companies to remove land holders in order to easily access known coal and gas reserves in the Pentland district.
“Rabobank will have token buyers lined up ready to buy the properties at discounted prices, leaving the Bradshaws holding the bag with a $1 million or more deficit, which without any means of income they will never be able to pay off,” the source said.
Yesterday Member for Kennedy Bob Katter weighed into this disgraceful episode, contacting the Labor Polce Minister(whose husband is a police inspector) then arriving at the Charters Towers police station to get the Bradshaws out of the watch house.
He was told the Bradshaws had been released just before he arrived.
The clearly upset Bob Katter told Cairns News that the lending practices of the banks are designed to allow foreclosures.
“In this case the bank loaned the family too much money because of droughts and poor cattle prices then the government-instigated live cattle export ban which placed them in an unviable position,” he said
“The banks are a law unto themselves and there is no power on earth to control them.
“I have got hundreds of similar cases on file where farmers have not been able to get any relief from any of the so-called government watchdogs like ACCC, courts, the Reserve Bank ASIC and others that are supposed to offer financially stressed businesses relief.
“Banks like Rabobank continue to flagrantly break the law.
“The Bradshaws are devastated after a lifetime’s work to lose their possessions to a foreign bank or any bank.
“The bank will make a profit of half a million or more from these seizures and the Bradshaws will have to carry a $1 million or more debt for the rest of their lives.
“This assault on an Australian farming family clearly demonstrates the urgent need for a Royal Commission into banking practices.”
