The Trusted Digital Identity bill 2022 and 10 million Optus identity thefts
The massive and unprecedented Optus data heist this week should put paid to any Australians placing their trust in this so-called ‘trusted’ legislation soon to be introduced by the Labor Party.
As more and more information is released by telco Optus it seems that up to 10 million former and existing customers have had their identity stolen by sophisticated hackers to be re-sold to criminal networks in Asia.
Gone are your identities through the theft of Passport numbers and all personal details including drivers licences.
In Australia, particularly with government, banks and telcos your date of birth is your official ID number.
You can’t change your date of birth therefore the loss of the millions of birth dates will now cost victims dearly as criminal networks clean out your bank and credit card accounts.
These devious Asians will open false accounts in banks, obtain credit cards, rip off power companies(not that would worry most customers), food retailers and engage in just about every online business transaction that can be done.
Your identity is gone forever thanks to fascist government policies that forced telcos to take and store this personal ID data when activating a phone.
Thank the Liberal National Party and the Labor Party as your identity just jumped out the window.
And the devious socialists in the ALP want you to sign onto their Trusted Digital Identity legislation soon to go before parliament?
The Trusted Digital Identity bill 2022
This proposed legislation makes way for biometric data to be stored by government or private companies. It includes finger prints, hand prints, iris scans, facial scans and your DNA. (we have been reliably informed that Queenslanders who were PCR tested for Covid with intrusive nasal swabs have their DNA recorded in private data banks held in Brisbane.)
The government website states:
‘This legislation provides assurance to consumers that their privacy and security is protected.
It is also relevant for businesses and state and territory governments who wish to:
- be accredited for the digital identity services they provide under the Australian Government accreditation scheme, or
- participate in the System as an accredited onboarded participant (provides identity services) or a relying party (services that require their customer to verify their identity online).’
The Optus damage so far:
1.Nearly 10 million current and former Optus customers have been affected by the data breach
2. An expert says the data could be used by criminals to take out fraudulent loans or impersonate victims
3.Australian intelligence agencies are investigating the data breach, which could have implications for national security.
Brendan Walker-Munro of the University of Queensland said with those personal details, criminals would be able to commit “garden variety identity theft”.
“Someone posing as you can contact certain agencies and redirect physical mail, potentially even your electronic mail,” he said.
Dr Walker-Munro said the information released could allow people to impersonate others.
“Essentially, they’re able to commit a crime and almost make it look as though this this innocent person whose information they’ve obtained was actually responsible for it,” he said.
An Australian Federal Police task force will work with the Australians Signals Directorate to identify those behind the breach.
“I want to reassure Australians that the full weight of cybersecurity capabilities across government … are working round the clock to respond to this breach,” Home Affairs Minister Clare O’Neil said.
Yeah Albo and are you going to going to play Santa Claus at the ACTU Christmas party this year?
Editor: It should be noted that Australia has long been recognised as the world wide testing ground for all devious operations of the Deep State. Take the Covid mandates for example and years before the introduction of colour TV, fuel shortages, shooting millions of livestock under the bogus BTEC scheme and then the Port Arthur sting that removed many guns from the population, ad infinitum.
There could be more to this data heist than it seems.
Optus leaves internet window open for hackers
Following a Cyberattack, Optus is investigating the possible unauthorised access of 2 million current and former customers’ information.
Optus is working with the Australian Cyber Security Centre to mitigate any risks to customers. Optus has also notified the Australian Federal Police, the Office of the Australian Information Commissioner and key regulators.
Information which may have been exposed includes customers’ names, dates of birth, phone numbers, email addresses, and, for a subset of customers, addresses, ID document numbers such as driver’s licence or passport numbers. Payment detail and account passwords have not been compromised.
Optus services, including mobile and home internet, are not affected, and messages and voice calls have not been compromised. Optus services remain safe to use and operate as per normal.
“Optus has also notified key financial institutions about this matter. While we are not aware of customers having suffered any harm, we encourage customers to have heightened awareness across their accounts, including looking out for unusual or fraudulent activity and any notifications which seem odd or suspicious.”
We have been advised that our announcement of the attack is likely to trigger a number of claims and scams from criminals seeking to benefit financially, including through:
• Phishing scams via calls, emails and SMS.
• Offering illegitimate customer details for sale.

Telecommunications engineer destroys six mobile phone towers with a tank due to radiation poisoning
Phone towers maiming people with EMF radiation. New 5G network will kill
from EMR Australia – Tuesday, March 02, 2010
Warning against rolling out more towers especially 5G
What inconvenient truth led a highly-regarded radiation expert to take the law into his own hands and demolish six mobile phone stations? As he faces sentencing this month, John Patterson talks to EMR and Health about the story behind the news.
John Patterson is a pleasant, considerate and well-mannered man with an easy smile and a wicked sense of humour. He is also one of Australia’s leading radiation experts—a man who has been at the cutting edge of communications technology for the past 33 years.
Yet on 14 July 2007 John Patterson broke into a truck yard, ‘borrowed’ a former British army tank and proceeded to systematically demolish six mobile phone base station in the Sydney suburb of Mt Druit, before his vehicle stalled at the site of the seventh base station and he surrendered to police.
Why did he do it?
According to John, mobile phones and their base stations pose a devastating risk to human life, to nature and to the planet that supports it.
Background and experience
John’s unwelcome conclusion is one that he is, unfortunately, extremely well-qualified to make.
John is one of Australia’s leading radiation experts—a man who has been at the forefront of technology for more than three decades; a man with a passion for electronics.
A telecommunications engineer, John has worked with every communications technology there is. Employed by the Overseas Telecommunications Commission (OTC), Telecom and Telstra, he built, tested and commissioned communications systems and completed over 54 engineering courses in order to keep up to date with the newest technologies. John was one of Australia’s leading radiation measurers, a trouble-shooter and the man who found the solutions to the toughest problems.
As early as 1978 OTC trained John in ‘radiation awareness’ and advised him to keep a diary of his experiences with the cutting edge radiation-emitting technology with which he worked. At that stage, no one knew what the effects would be.
All too soon John was to find out.
As his career progressed, John became a very sick man. ‘The more I was exposed to, the sicker I became,’ he said. The crunch came after two mobile phone base stations were installed—one on either side of his workplace. By that stage, John was having regular heart attacks which continued for four years.
In his impeccably-maintained diaries, John detailed the health effects that he observed in himself and other workers, many of whom later died. ‘Telecom had a very high number of suicides,’ he recalls.
The symptoms he observed, in order of occurrence, included:
- short-term memory loss (including momentary lapses)
- long-term memory loss
- involuntary contraction of muscles and tendons
- chronic fatigue
- problems with balance—at first walking, then riding
- sore neck muscles
- jaw out of alignment
- vertebrae in shoulders and bottom four vertebrae out of alignment—caused by cramping of muscles
- misco-ordination between eye and muscles
- reduction in elasticity in body, especially throat, resulting in a ‘choking’ effect when swallowing
- thyroid problems
- heart problems (including heart attacks)
- stomach valve not opening properly, leading to heart burn and nausea
- changes to gait
- numbing of the skin
- black rings around the iris
- kidney problems
- liver problems—leading to skin problems, rashes and pimples that don’t heal. (John saw at least 1000 workers with similar skin problems.)
- inappropriate emotional responses.
The concern for John is that the symptoms he once saw only in exposed workers, he’s now seeing in members of the public—including very young children.
Mobile phone radiation
John Patterson does not own a mobile phone—nor do many people who’ve spent time talking with him. However, he does own an impressive array of technical equipment with which he is able to measure the effects of this and similar technologies, which puts him in a strong position to offer advice.
Mobile phone technology uses a combination of frequencies that John was taught were too dangerous to be used together. It was designed to create new channels for interstate communications and undersea cables, says John.
‘It was never meant to be sprayed out in a circle.’
As early as 1978 John was warned by OTC that it could take four days to recover from one exposure to digital radio waves. Yet consider the number and frequency of exposures one commonly receives today!
Analogue phones affect only part of the body, he says, but digital phone signals affect the whole body.
According to John, mobile phone signals diminish the ability of pharmaceuticals to work and they carry disease.
For people wanting to know whether mobile phone radiation is affecting them, John suggests two quick tests:
‘When you are in a room with a mobile phone, walk outside and notice the change’. This is radio awareness which John was taught in the 1970s by OTC.
Try adding a list of numbers (or, if you are able, translating a document from one language to another). Notice what happens to your concentration when the mobile phone is switched on and signalling. Read the rest of this entry
