Australian police are the opposite wanting to disarm the entire population
(Natural News) A growing group of sheriffs in Illinois are vowing not to enforce provisions of a new gun control law passed by the Democrat-controlled General Assembly and signed by Democratic Gov. J.B. Pritzker this week.
The statute, which is being heavily criticized as anti-Second Amendment and potentially unconstitutional, not only calls for banning new sales of so-called “assault weapons,” but while it allows current owners to keep the weapons they have, they must register them with the Illinois State Police, and that is where the sheriffs have drawn a line.
The Democrat-controlled state legislature imposed a ban on a variety of semiautomatic guns, magazines, and devices that allow a weapon to fire more quickly on Monday.
The Protecting Illinois Communities Act passed the Illinois Senate on Monday night by a vote margin of 34–20. The bill makes it illegal for Illinois residents to purchase, transfer, or manufacture “assault weapons” and extended magazines. According to the bill’s language, an “assault weapon” is a semiautomatic rifle that can accept a detachable magazine and has a pistol grip or thumbhole stock, a flash suppressor, a grenade launcher, a barrel shroud, or other characteristics.
“I’m signing this legislation tonight so it can take immediate effect,” Pritzker said in a press conference, local media reported on Tuesday.
In a letter posted to Facebook, Greene County Sheriff Rob McMillen wrote that he plans to follow his “morals, beliefs, and obligations concerning protecting the rights” of the citizens of his county.
These types of laws put law enforcement officers and prosecutors in a very precarious box, with us having to decide to not enforce laws that were passed by government bodies,” McMillen wrote. “But, as your Greene County Sheriff, I cannot sit back and let laws strip Greene County citizens of their constitutional rights, and not take a stance supporting the citizens against a government that wants to trample on their rights.”
Meanwhile, Iroquois County Sheriff Clinton J. Perzee noted in a letter of his own, “The right to keep and bear arms for defense of life, liberty and property is regarded as an inalienable right by the people. I, among many others, believe that HB 5471 is a clear violation of the 2nd Amendment to the U.S. Constitution.”
His letter followed a Dec. 13 vote by the Iroquois County Board implementing a measure that forbids the “use of county funds, appropriation, personnel, or property” to enforce the law, The Epoch Times noted further.
Perzee said that neither he nor his office will be checking to ensure that “lawful gun owners register their weapons with the State, nor will we be arresting or housing law abiding individuals that have been arrested solely with non-compliance of this Act.”
Clinton County Sheriff Dan Travous, Macoupin County Sheriff Shawn Kahl, and Monroe County Sheriff Neal Rohlfing all made similar statements and commitments to their residents.
Also, Madison County Sheriff Jeff Connor, in conjunction with the county’s State’s Attorney Tom Haine, noted in a joint statement that they expect the law will face legal challenges and “trust that this legislative overreach will not stand.”
“In the meantime, we remain focused on reducing violent crime,” their letter reads. “Therefore, pending further direction by the courts, the Madison County Sheriff’s Office will not expend its limited resources to check whether otherwise law-abiding gun owners have registered their weapons with the State, nor will the Madison County Sheriff’s Office be arresting or housing otherwise law-abiding individuals solely due to non-compliance with [the law].”
Edwards County Sheriff Darby Boewe also took to social media with an almost identical vow not to enforce the law.
“Part of my duties that I accepted upon being sworn into office was to protect the rights provided to all of us, in the Constitution,” Boewe wrote on Facebook. “One of those rights enumerated is the right of the people to KEEP and BEAR ARMS provided under the 2nd Amendment. The right to keep and bear arms for defense of life, liberty and property is regarded as an inalienable right by the people.”
Logan County, Kankakee County, Piatt County, LaSalle County, Knox County, Pike County, Putnam County, St. Clair County, Union County, Wabash County, Woodford County, Williamson County, Wayne County, Shelby County, Ogle County, Jo Daviess County, and more posted similar letters.

NSW Premier Dominic Perrottet’s brothers Charles and Jean-Claude, who operate behind the scenes in the Liberal Party trying to turn a dollar, were accused of further crimes such as branch stacking and taking bribes on last Monday’s Four Corners (4/7/22) show but the old media have gone into cover-up mode.
A quick internet search shows this is not the first time they have been accused of crimes with Charles being accused in 2014 at the NSW ICAC of money laundering donations for the Liberal Party and Jean-Claude being acquitted of rape by a jury in the NSW District Court in 2017.
I edited the Four Corners program titled “The War Within” which is about Liberal Party infighting and used the part about Charles and Jean-Claude Perrottet and added my commentary in the video below:

WikiLeaks came to international attention in 2010 when it published a series of leaks provided by U.S. Army intelligence analyst Chelsea Manning. These leaks included the Baghdad airstrike Collateral Murder video (April 2010), the Afghanistan war logs (July 2010), the Iraq war logs (October 2010), and Cablegate (November 2010). After the 2010 leaks, the United States government launched a criminal investigation into WikiLeaks.

CLIVE Palmer has exposed the corrupt role of big pharma companies Pfizer and AstraZeneca behind Gladys Berejiklian’s frantic push for vaccines in NSW.
In a press conference on Tuesday Palmer dropped a bomb on the NSW Liberals and the corrupt role of a political lobbyist being paid tens of millions of dollars by Pfizer and Astra Zeneca. The same lobbyist, says Palmer, controls the Liberal Party in Sydney and is using the threat of the Independent Commission Against Corruption’s (ICAC) inquiries into Gladys Berejiklian to pull her strings and push the vaccines.
Media and mainstream parties are in a panic, trying to cover up the mounting scandal by attacking Palmer, whose United Australia Party is about to become the biggest political party in Australia by membership.
Palmer also accused the head of the TGA Prof. John Skerrit, as the chief regulator of drugs in Australia, of being in a “serious conflict of interest” by going on television in a white coat promoting vaccines threatening media owners with withdrawal of advertising if they published stories contrary to government vaccine policy.
Palmer dropped the bomb when a jabbering journalist tried to push the NSW government’s lies about 1600 “cases” and that people really were dying from COVID-19 and the only way out for locked-down small businesses in NSW was for most of the population to get a double jab. “They can’t open their businesses because the premier’s telling them the only way out is a double jab and that’s what they’re being told,” said the journo.
“I’d say the premier is lying to them,” Palmer shot back. “And I’d say that she’s under an ICAC inquiry, but a particular lobbyist in Sydney controls the Liberal Party in Sydney and told her the only way she gets out of that inquiry is if she pushes the double jab, and his clients are Astra Zeneca and his clients are Pfizer.”
At that point the upstart journo butts in again, repeating the nonsense that the only way out for the business owners is the double jab. Palmer’s very newsworthy allegation of high-level corruption was too much for the lame-brained scribbler to take in, apparently.
Palmer came back, again trying to answer the question. “That’s what I’d tell them (the business owners) and that what the premier’s saying is not true and … that they shouldn’t be locked down, businesses should be open and the government’s using this as an excuse to destroy them and they know that.”
Palmer’s reference to the big plan behind COVID-19 triggered the journo again. “You think that the Premier of NSW wants to destroy businesses?” “I do,” said Palmer. “Why would she want to do that. It’s her economy!” he countered.
“Because as I tried to explain to you, she’s being directed by a lobbyist in Sydney who’s being paid by Astra Zeneca and by Pfizer tens of millions of dollars to get these policies through, to make sure these vaccines are pushed. That’s why. You asked the question and that’s my personal knowledge and I’m happy to make the statement here to the police or anyone who want to know what’s going on … I’ll be doing that. They’ll be named.”
Palmer went on to remind the journo that United Australia Party is about to become the biggest political party in Australia, with some 46,000 people recently joining, including 20,000 from western Sydney.
He told the media conference earlier that he and the UAP leader Craig Kelly welcomed a bizarre threat by the head of the TGA, Prof. John Skerrit, to lay criminal charges against them for exposing the 483 post-vaccination deaths reported by the TGA. Cairns News believe the figure is now at least double that.
“It’s an extraordinary situation where you’ve got a member of the Australian House of Representatives being attacked for doing nothing more than circulating a government report. First of all United Australia Party Welcomes any legal action against Mr Kelly and we look forward to it as an opportunity when John Skerrit himself can be subpoenaed and be asked the question about the 483 Australians who died after having the vaccine and be asked to say to the court and the Australian people what were their causes of death and what did the TGA do to investigate that, and why is it justified to continue the roll out?
“Secondly, we can ask Mr Skerrit on oath about the 46,000 adverse (event) reports that his office has received, about what he’s done about it and thirdly we can raise the question about how he threatened media owners with cancellation of advertising if journalists wrote anything about a contrary view of the government and his attack on freedom of speech.”
Palmer said Health Minister Greg Hunt would also be subpoenaed over his role in the vaccine roll-out. He said Craig Kelly had nothing to fear for publishing a government document.

“My wife was just fined $5,600 for “gathering at a shop during lockdown while shopping for food with her mother, in a small country town”
This reader will not be voting the Australian duopoly back to our parliament allowing continuance of entrenched ALP/LNP dictatorship that unlawfully replaced our rightful democracy.
Craig Kelly MP, the Independent Member for Hughes, has today called for all Politicians both Federal & State, and all Senior Government Bureaucrats to have their weekly salary reduced to $750 per week for as long as any lockdown continues in their State or Territory.
“If governments are going to continue to deny Australians the freedom to earn a living or prevent them from opening their businesses, and Politicians expect families to survive on $750 per week for an extended period, then Politicians and Senior Bureaucrats need to set an example and cut their salaries to the same $750” said Craig Kelly.
“If ‘we are all in this together’ as the marketing slogan goes, then we ALL need to be IN THIS TOGETHER, including financially.”
“Given that individuals and businesses have been given as little notice as at ‘midnight tonight’, this pay cut, reducing weekly salaries for all Politicians and Senior Government Bureaucrats, should be made effective as of midnight tonight” said Craig Kelly.

Australian polling booths provide alterable graphite pencils in lieu of indelible ink pens is of concern. Coupled to our no proof of identity checks when officials mark voter attendance give credence to greater concern. Further recorded anomalies reveal missing and over supply of registered voters always dismissed by AEC and government with monotonous regularity.

My wife and I were both born in Australia, as were two children and four grandchildren. Our parents were born in Australia as were all of their parents. And some ancestors go back much further in this land.
I feel rage every time I have to sit through another patronising “welcome to country” charade, designed to make me feel an intruder in my own land. Indigenous history on this continent is the same as our family story – it just goes back a bit further.
The first aboriginals probably walked here over a land bridge and Europeans came later in sailing clippers. All caused displacement of prior inhabitants. They brought dingos which are now “protected” – we brought cattle, sheep, horses and ploughs which are increasingly condemned. They mined ochre, quartzite and basalt, which are now heritage sites – but our coal mines are widely condemned. They brought spears and boomerangs – we brought guns and swords.
Racial referenda, indigenous “Welcomes”, talk of Treaties and special land rights for some Australians just create and maintain division. How long before we are one people with the same rights and responsibilities?
Two centuries is surely time enough?

That’s correct Viv, but wait until you have to sit through a phony ‘smoking ceremony.’ Our northern blackfellas shudder every time they see one. It’s only for tourists and has no traditional basis but the silly Prime Minister allowed hours of it at Parliament House for the opening ceremony. What a laugh!

How sad is this. Having to give up your job so you can get more money. AND they tell us they do it for their constituents NOT FOR MONEY!!!!!! By the way check out what pensioners get in this country.
The real reason behind 60 Elected MPs not seeking re-election
Sixty elected members of the federal government have now reported they have made the decision not to run in the upcoming next election!
It’s a very high number compared to previous elections. Some of them tell us that it’s for family reasons, others for their desire to serve their fellow citizens in other fields and many other great stories to make us cry for them.
Besides all the tear jerking that politicians have been giving about retiring here is something else to consider.
In 2015 a change in the pension for MP’s ensures that the age of full retirement for an MP having served at least 6 years, will no longer be 55 years but 65 years. Thus any MP not yet 65 and who wants to benefit from the present pension scheme need only not run in the next election and thus will draw for 10 years longer a government pension of over $100,000/year.
For an elected MP approaching 55 and who is not running, that means about $1 million that he/she would not receive should he/she run and win again. One should also add the severance premium (between $80,000 and $125,000) upon his/her departure.
You can now understand better all these sudden “family emergencies”, appreciate the newfound desire to advance his/her career in a government job or a committee of some sort and have two or three salaries (and possibly two or three pensions).
Not bad as a justification to not run eh?,
