I’ve written a few times (here, for example) about ‘the nanny State’, and the way in which well-meaning people want to protect ourselves from ourselves by making illegal things that we like to do. Of course, virtually all domestic law is about protecting us from us, but every now and then I want to cry ‘Enough!’ And I do so in this essay, which is about the efforts of a Green MLA in Canberra to protect us, or more specifically, her grand-daughter, from the wicked writing on Wicked camper vans.
If you haven’t come across a Wicked camper van, then here is a photographic example:
If you travel our fair land by road you are likely to see such vans almost anywhere. I’ve seen one in Birdsville. Would I rent one? No. Would I write on my own car, let alone write stuff like that? No. Do I need to be protected against such writing? No. Am I offended, outraged or appalled? No. You just shrug, and ignore it. Life is too short.
Before I go any further, I should say that the Green MLA who felt otherwise, Caroline le Couteur, is someone I like. Elected several years ago, when the Greens had three seats in the Assembly, she turned out to be a useful and generally sensible MLA. She didn’t make the cut at the next election, but came back last year, as one of two elected Greens MLAs. But we all have our weaknesses, and this is hers. Here is the beginning of what she wrote in the Greens Magazine.
For over a decade our sosnews investigators continue turning over rocks under which government rely on to cover facts under the guise of conspiracy theory maintaining guilt of Martin Bryant conducting the April 1996 mass shootings in Tasmania.
Like DNA opening old and cold police cases investigation to reveal new evidence, technology also is revealing new evidence.
A few questions to consider: Surviving victims and families of the deceased still demanding a coronial inquiry John Howard quashed – Police evidence and very selective interviews are more than suspect – No police presence at Port Arthur for hours – Bryant is frightened with automatic guns, is left handed, with the shooter confirmed as right handed – IQ of a child Bryant is painted as an extraordinary marksman with exceptional ability military experts dismiss.
You can only hide for so long then a net of factual information closes around the fictional source.
This video is a further piece of information emerging from the silent abyss.
Doctors kill 25,000 patients each year: guns kill 211
The Australian Medical Association, better known as the ‘medical mafia’ has stumbled into the firearms ownership minefield making erroneous and ignorant statements about a “real time national firearms register” that somehow would magically remove firearms from groups such as the Muslim bikies.
Opening his mouth before engaging his brain, AMA vice president Dr Tony Bartone told ABC news that a national register would be able to track guns from when they were imported or manufactured to when they were either crushed or exported.
The AMA wants to infect your children and yourselves with toxic vaccines on one hand, and on the other impose a national level of even more restrictive regulations curtailing your Bill of Rights guarantee to own a firearm.
Shooters should demand a register of dirty, toxic vaccines that have without any doubt as the empirical evidence shows, caused autism in 2 per cent of all vaccinated American children and killed many more across the world.
The Australian statistics are just as bad and have been published over the past few years in Cairns News.
Cairns News has championed the burgeoning anti-vax movement for years as more and more evidence comes across our desks revealing the long term damage caused by most vaccines.
We advise shooters with registered and unregistered firearms to tell the well-heeled medical mafia to go to hell.
Few people have an understanding that their trusted AMA members are ripping off patients and Medicare to the tune of $3 billion a year for practicing voodoo medicine and infecting thousands of babies and young children each year with toxic vaccines and drugs.
One disillusioned doctor told Cairns News the first thing medical students learn at medical school is how to suck up to big pharma and rip-off patients by rorting Medicare with bulk billing and exorbitant charges for mostly unnecessary surgeries and prescribing deadly narcotics when there are non-lethal and non-addictive natural remedies readily available.
Big pharma controls the medical mafia, so one can only speculate why this stupid doctor would be their mouthpiece on such a touchy subject.
The number of Australian gun deaths has been declining since 1986 when 677 were recorded to 211 in 2015 (GunPolicy.org). This is in contrast to the thousands of patients doctors kill each year.
After all doctors kill more than 25,000 patients each year in Australia according to the medical industry expose, ‘Dead Doctors Don’t Lie’, the handbook about the medical mafia and available at most health shops.
HOW SOUTH AUSTRALIA SCAMS MOTORISTS
Here’s a brief example of how the 25 kph “law” is working here in Adelaide.
We have a road called Grand Junction Road. In one section between Hampstead Road and Main North Road, it has 3 lanes heading east and 3 lanes heading west. Median strip wide enough to park a semi-trailer on with trees and shrubs growing on it.
A friend was heading west one afternoon after work in the far left lane. On the opposite side of the road, heading west in its far left lane was a car pulled over by police with flashing red and blues. Friend didn’t slow down – obviously the cop car was 4 lanes away and on the other side of a median strip while heading in the opposite direction.
Friend was pulled over by an unmarked police car and fined for doing 60 kph in a 25 kph because of the cop car on the other side of the road. Was threatened with immediate licence suspension due to 35 kph over the speed limit.
Here’s the kicker – it’s regular. The unmarked car sits in a small side street about 100 metres away from where cars are regularly stopped on the opposite side of the road! I’ve used this road daily every morning and afternoon at the same times. It’s almost as if cars are purposely pulled over in that particular spot to grab a double hit!
But that’d be a silly conspiracy theory though – wouldn’t it? After all, the SAPOL motto is “Keeping SA Safe” 😉
How to talk to police when stopped on a road:
Comment below from Ziggy Zapata, Webmaster, Campaign Against Road Ripoffs:
So this is how the South Australian Police entrap motorists for revenue in situations where there is absolutely no reason to book them. In this particular instance, the police car with the flashing lights was on the other side of a very wide 6-lane divided road, yet the ludicrous South Australian law mandated that motorists driving on the opposite side of the road, even so many lanes away and across the other side of a median strip, had to slow to 25 km/h when driving by.
And of course there was a police car hiding on the other side of the road that was far removed from the police car with the flashing lights and a cop was booking motorists who failed to crawl along at 25 km/h in that spot.
Nobody would ever imagine that they would have to slow to 25 km/h on the other side of a very wide divided road, merely because a police car had its lights flashing, but it seems that this technique is perfect for luring motorists into forking out massive fines for no reason whatsoever.
*KPI: Key Performance Indicators that police officers have in their work contracts which require them to collect a certain amount of revenue in fines for them to progress their prospect of promotion.
Constable Grinch turned off Christmas spirit
22 December 2016
KAP Member for Kennedy Bob Katter labels police officer ‘constable bar-humbug’ after recently pulling over a cavalcade vehicle decorated with festive lights doing charity work in Mount Isa.
“Do you know just how you destroy the standing of your police force? When you go around and tell someone with some Christmas lights on their vehicle in a police escorted community event that they are breaking the law,” Mr Katter said.
“There is a great saying that ‘the Laws are made for the guidance of wise man, and the obedience of fools’.
“As a legislator for 42 years, it is hard to get a law perfect, a shoe just simply doesn’t fit every foot. We expect the people implementing these laws do so with a little bit of discretion; that is not being used here,” Mr Katter said.
The Federal Member for Kennedy said he is tired of personal freedoms being unnecessarily eroded over recent decades, from the requirement to pay for a licence to go fishing, to being fined for boiling a billy in your backyard.
“Queensland is the most restrictive state on Earth. There is hardly a week that goes by where we don’t get another example of just how abominable it has become, and just how many of our freedoms are taken away,” Mr Katter said.
“In the rodeo procession in 2015, there was a float in the procession, but 20 metres from where the procession line started, because there were people in the back of the procession vehicle, a person was fined $350 and lost three points, and the policer earned the undying hatred and enmity of so many people in Mount Isa.
“Good policing requires the people to be on side with your police force- good relations with the population. You will not get it with this sort of excessive behaviour. And yes, the letter of the law may not be being followed here,” Mr Katter said.
“Well, you can choose whether you’re the wise man or the fool,” he said.
Australian controlled media remain silent as international concern to government inflicted brutality at Standing Rock Dakota being meted upon the largest gathering of protesting American Indian Nations in recent history.
People power is the virus that destroys government indulging in people control and corruption.
Today Japan has offered solidarity with the Indian Nations adding further international support as some 2000 supporting US military veterans move into Standing Rock.
Originally the oil pipeline direction was through the town Bismark North Dakota with a white population of some 57,000 objected due to possible pollution from the pipeline. Redirected through disputed Sioux land per the treaty of Fort Laramie in 1851, the pipeline must now be tunneled UNDER the Missouri River, [not required over the original route] escalating the Bismark concern of an environmental disaster now includes water supply.
Following this protest unfold for some time observing North Dakota governor Jack Dalrymple engineer this fiasco, may well see him follow General Custer into a career threatening Indian ambush.

The reasons for protests at Standing Rock are complicated, morally-nuanced and steeped in history.
By Cresta Lee – SOS-NEWS
In 2014, Texas-based Energy Transfer Partners (ETP) proposed a 1,134-mile underground pipeline that would take newly- tapped oil from the Bakken oil fields in North Dakota to a terminal in Illinois where it could be shipped to refineries and processed as usable fuel. Routing the oil underground rather than by train is far more cost efficient and arguably more environmentally friendly than other forms of transportation, according to the oil companies.
The problem is the pipeline crosses close to the sovereign land of the Standing Rock Sioux Tribe and underneath a stretch of the Missouri River near the tribe’s water supply. The tribe claims construction of the pipeline will destroy their sacred grounds and put the safety of their water supply at risk. They say they were not consulted in the investigation phase of the pipeline’s approval and that their complaints were dismissed by the Army Corps of Engineers responsible for approving projects like the pipeline.
Understanding the tribe’s side to the story necessitates understanding their status as a sovereign nation. In response to the horrendous treatment of Native American tribes in the United States’ history the government has recognized the sovereignty of these tribes and their land in specifically designated areas. Key in this is not that the government has “given” them sovereignty but rather acknowledged these groups of people as being a separately existing nation within the United States. To that end, tribes like the Standing Rock Sioux Tribe theoretically have the same status as a foreign country, and therein lies the problem.
Making things even more complicated, the Standing Rock Sioux Tribe claim the land in question did originally belong to them via a treaty made in 1851 that has since been routinely violated by the federal government. The Sioux claim they have never ceded the land in question but have had it taken from them against their will.
Private security groups and law enforcement have been responsible for increasingly violent clashes with water protectors camped out on the land.
The Standing Rock Sioux are a sovereign nation of historically abused people who are protesting the annexation and profiteering of their own land, and in return are experiencing particularly brutal forms of police suppression. On September 3 a protest over a construction site that was believed to be inactive led to a clash between security personnel and water protectors.
On October 27, mace, rubber bullets and water cannons were used against 200 protesters. In November water cannons were again used against water protectors in freezing weather, leading to 26 people being hospitalized for broken bones and hypothermia and 141 people being arrested. Police claim they were using the water cannons to put out fires, while the water protectors claim the fires were started after the cannons to keep people warm.
The fallout from the actions of security personnel and law enforcement in November has served to bolster the resolve of water protectors and led to veterans of the US Armed Forces organising as a group to travel to Standing Rock to defend the safety of those peacefully assembled against future brutality.
This video below presents interview and footage from events at Standing Rock from November 20th – 21st 2016. The medic in this interview speaks to the violence that occurred last night as the riot police and the national guard used a spray cannon to drench the “Water Protector Defenders” for 9 hours in freezing temperatures. Tear gas canisters were launched at us one after another. Rubber bullets were fired at us, as well as sand bags. The Protectors stood strong, stayed calm and maintained good spirits, holding the bridge until at least 1:30 am.
French backpacker shouts “Ali ackabar” (God is great) as he stabs two backpackers at Home Hill in North Qld
From ABC and Cairns News
More than 30 people witnessed a double-stabbing at a north Queensland backpackers hostel which left one woman dead and another fighting for his life in hospital, police say.
Police were called to Shelley’s Backpackers in Home Hill, south of Townsville, after receiving reports of a knife attack at about 11:15pm on Tuesday.
They arrived to find a woman, a British national, dead, and a man, a 30-year-old British national, with serious knife wounds.
He was taken to Townsville Hospital where he remains in a critical condition.
Another man, a 29-year-old French national, has been taken into police custody. Witnesses reported the French assailant screamed “Ali ackabar” as he stabbed the two innocent backpackers.
He received an injury to one of his arms.
Detective Superintendent Ray Rohweder told a press conference more than 30 people witnessed the incident.
“As we understand it at the moment, the French gentleman, the person who’s helping us, has attacked the two British nationals,” Det Supt Rohweder said.
“We don’t have any motive at this stage. We’re taking a number of statements in relation to what exactly was said on the evening.”
Dep Supt Rohweder said the first responding officers were confronted by a terrible scene.
“But both officers in my book acted tremendously and ensured the safety of other persons at the venue,” he said.
Police have taken possession of a knife believed to be the weapon used in the attack.

Missed opportunities that could have ended fatal Lindt cafe siege
Fifteen hours later, as a police team that had none of the real-life experience of TAG East would storm the Lindt cafe, the special forces soldiers were still on standby. TAG East — the Tactical Assault Group based on the east coast — has commandos who have worked in Afghanistan and Iraq.
If, for example, 18 Australians were taken hostage by Islamic State in Iraq, this is the team the Australian government would dispatch to rescue them. Yet here they were — 30 minutes drive from the Lindt Cafe — and they were never called.
NSW Attorney General: Benjamin Batterham was protecting his family, RELEASE Benjamin Batterham from custody WITH NO CHARGES NOW!
I’ve just seen on the news that a Newcastle man Benjamin Batterham had his home invaded by a criminal who just got out of jail – apparently he found him near his baby’s room at 3:30am. Benjamin chased him down and tackled him to the ground, where he was held until police arrived – he later died in hospital.
Now Benjamin is being charged with MURDER, for protecting his home and family! What are you supposed to do, lay down and die and let unspeakable things happen to your loved ones while you wait for the police?
Homeowners should be able to defend their families from criminals who break into their homes – and Benjamin should be released now!!!
A Cairns News special presentation
Parry must break silence on post-massacre report
A senator has refused to comment about allegations he had prior knowledge of the Port Arthur massacre in 1996 when 35 innocent people were killed in a precision shooting operation.
Another 23 men, women and children were wounded by a trained and methodical gunman with long blond hair.
Revelations by Austrian-based author and researcher, Keith Noble, that Senator Stephen Parry had prior knowledge of the shootings, have not been refuted.
Parry at the time was a qualified embalmer and a former member of Tasmania Police who led a team of embalmers which handled the bodies in 1996.
An Australian, Mr Noble is leading a campaign to free accused shooter Martin Bryant from Risdon Gaol in Tasmania.
A paper written and presented in 1997 by Stephen Parry entitled ‘Port Arthur Massacre – AFDA National Embalming Team – Detailed Report’, that appears in a little-known book entitled ‘PORT ARTHUR SEMINAR PAPERS: A record of the Port Arthur Seminar’, 11-12 March, 1997, Melbourne, Victoria (ISBN 0642271364) clearly shows the incident that rocked a nation was planned.
In his 16 page, disturbing 1997 paper, Senator Parry stated in the following passage :
“I was particularly impressed by the quick response and initiatives by some of the team members in packaging and collecting equipment.
The response time and the amount of equipment quickly relocated was fantastic. One firm in particular, Nelson Brothers, had organised for an embalming machine box and a special large equipment case to be manufactured ready for the incident. These two containers were the envy of all embalmers and worked extremely well.
I would suggest that design specifications may be available from this firm for any future considerations by other firms.” (highlighted by CN)
Parry reveals the funeral services company of Nelson Brothers in Melbourne, Victoria, had undertaken preparations prior to the shooting.
According to Wikipedia:
“Parry was born on 31 October 1960 in Burnie, Tasmania, to William Stephen Parry and Patricia Dawn Evans. He was educated at Burnie’s Marist Regional College after which he enrolled at the Tasmanian Police Academy in Hobart.
Parry was employed as an officer with the Tasmanian Police from 1977 to 1986, and was promoted to Detective in 1983. After leaving the police force, he completed a certificate in Mortuary Science at the Australian College of Funeral Service, and was a funeral director from 1986 to 2004, becoming president of the Australian Funeral Directors Association. Parry was also president of the Burnie Chamber of Commerce and Industry from 2000 to 2004, and a director of the Tasmanian Chamber of Commerce and Industry from 2000 to 2005.”
In 2004, Parry was elected to the Australian Senate for the State of Tasmania as a member of the Liberal Party.
Senator Parry was eminently qualified to lead the embalming team and as such his published comments would have to be accurate.
On February 26 he was emailed a ‘Show Cause’ notice by Keith Noble who accused the Senate Leader of having prior knowledge of the tragedy.
As of going to print Mr Noble says he has had no acknowledgement or reply from senator Parry.
Cairns News emailed senator Parry’s office with a copy of the notice but he had not responded at the time of going to print.
In furthering his moves to get Bryant out of gaol, Mr Noble told Cairns News there is an abundance of available evidence that the Tasmania Police refuse to acknowledge, clearly indicating Bryant is innocent.
“There was no trial, no coronial inquest, no public enquiry, no royal commission,” Mr Noble said.
“The story pushed by authorities that a trial would have been upsetting is the way the State has kept its crimes concealed from the public.
“John Howard was the worst Prime Minister Australia has ever had, and he encouraged the Liberal Party in Tasmania not to give innocent Martin a trial.
“Howard, who is also a qualified lawyer, spoke out to have Martin denied his legal rights and he never had proper legal representation and was kept in isolation for over six months.
“His lawyer at the time John Avery, who was convicted in 2008 for misappropriating and stealing $512,000, forced Martin to change his not guilty plea.
“He is another person who played the game after the official incident at Port Arthur. This is the depth to which the legal system in Tasmania has been taken over by corrupt lawyers, which includes that other pair of mongrels who wrongly prosecuted and convicted innocent Martin, Damian Bugg and William Cox.”
Mr Noble said the incident at Port Arthur was a premeditated, planned, and professionally perpetrated act of psycho-terror undertaken by the State to coerce the public into accepting firearm legislation.
“Martin Bryant is the patsy,” he said.
