World leaders per capita, Australia’s 25M population supports 54 spy agencies watching and listening everyday. All sanctioned by late night government bills passing in the name of national security without accountability.

Touching but the surface referencing your privacy and freedom violation by corrupt government, take heed of the following information, ask your self the question – “am I feeding votes to a political machine destroying my freedom”?.
Information from “Sydney Criminal Lawyers” Australia’s Leading Criminal Defence firm
Home Affairs Minister Peter Dutton has been absent from the media spotlight in recent times, ever since he contracted coronavirus.
And many are asking where the man at the helm of curtailing civil liberties on a federal level has been in the midst of the current pandemic.
The man at the helm of the surveillance state
Mr Dutton has been credited with proposing a wide range of laws designed to increase the power of authorities at the expense of individual liberties.
Among these, are proposed laws which would result in prison time for those who fail or refuse to hand over their passwords or PINs when requested to do so by authorities.
Peter Dutton says these types of laws are needed to help police catch criminals who are hiding behind encryption technology – a line we have heard many times before as the country’s law makers put in place draconian measures to grant police and other authorities surveillance powers that encroach upon our privacy.
Under the proposals, people who are not even suspected of a crime would face a fine of up to $50,000 and up to five years’ imprisonment for declining to provide a password to their smartphone, computer or other electronic devices.
Furthermore, anyone (an IT professional, for example) who refuses to help the authorities crack a computer system when ordered will face up to five years in prison. If the crime being investigated is terrorism-related then the penalty for non-compliance increases to 10 years in prison and/or a $126,000 fine.
Tech companies who refuse to assist authorities to crack encryption when asked to do so, will face up to $10 million in fines. What’s more, if any employee of the company tells anyone else they have been told to do this, they will face up to five years in gaol.
Under the legislation, foreign countries can also ask Australia’s Attorney General for police to access data in your computer to help them investigate law-breaking overseas.
Australia’s hyper-legislative response to September 11
Since the September 11, 2001, terrorist attacks in the United States, the Australian parliament has responded to the threat of terrorism here and overseas by enacting more than 80 new laws and amending existing laws – many of them with wide-reaching consequences, such as the terrorism laws used to conduct raids on journalist Annika Smethurst’s home and the ABC’s head offices, as well as charge former military lawyer and whistleblower David Mc Bride with offences that could see him spending the rest of his life in gaol.
Controversial metadata laws too, introduced in 2015, seriously impact our personal privacy requiring telecommunications companies to retain metadata including information on who you call or text, where you make calls from, and who you send emails to.
The problem is that once these kinds of extraordinarily heavy-handed powers are legislated, they are very seldom retracted or rescinded. In many cases, over time, they are expanded. Australia’s oversight body the Australian Law Reform Commission can review laws that are already in place, but it has limited powers which only enable the commission to make recommendations for change, not to actually change the laws themselves.
Police already have the power to seize a phone or laptop if you have been arrested.
Border Force has even more extensive seize and search powers.
The extensive powers of border force
In 2018, Border Force made headlines after intercepting an British-Australian citizen travelling through Sydney airport seizing his devices.
Nathan Hague, a software developer was not told what would be done with his devices, why they were being inspected or whether his digital data was being copied and stored. He believes his laptop password was cracked.
Australian Border Forces have extensive powers to search people’s baggage at Australian airports. These are contained in section 186 of Customs Act 1901 (Cth). These include opening baggage, reading documents, and using an X-ray or detection dog to search baggage.
The Customs Act allows officers to retain an electronic device for up to 14 days if there is no content on the device which renders it subject to seizure. And if it is subject to seizure, the device may be withheld for a longer period.
ABF officers have the power to copy a document if they’re satisfied it may contain information relevant to prohibited goods, to certain security matters or an offence against the Customs Act. A document includes information on phones, SIM cards, laptops, recording devices and computers.

Witnessing the erosion of our legal system, while the Mainstream Media cheers it along and gaslights hundreds of millions of Americans that it is justified has been one of the most distressing features of the past three years.
We’ve all been subjected to the psychological civil war and endless coup that began in January 2017, that is ultimately not about Donald Trump. It’s an attack on the US legal system and a daily attempt to overthrow our system of government.
California Representative, Devin Nunes sat down with Siraj Hashmi from the Washington Examiner in a rare interview, in which he is actually treated fairly.
Hashmi is a Left-leaning journalist during a time when his colleagues in the corrupt, Dinosaur Media do not practice fairness, let alone journalism, in their mission to obscure decades of Deep State corruption now coming to light.
Nunes gives an overview of the situation; the criminality, the laws that have been broken and that continue to be broken every day and the legal steps that are being taken.
“It went from a campaign dirty trick to an attempted coup on the presidency of the United States and now we’re in a status of a permanent coup, where, you know we’re gonna have these Ukraine Hoaxes and every day is gonna be something new.”
The politicization of the highest levels of US intelligence agencies under the Obama Administration created fertile ground to germinate this endless barrage of politically-motivated, manipulated intelligence that we’ve been seeing, starting with the “Intelligence Community Assessment” on Russian inteference in the 2016 elections to the Sham Impeachment in 2020.
Nunes explains, the previous administration was rife with cover-ups. “Whether it was the Benghazi attack or the rise of ISIS or the Iran nuclear agreement…all of those things were cover-ups.
“So, it was kind of a slow, rotten decay at the top levels.”

KAP ANNOUNCES “BAT RE-STOCKING” PROPOSAL
Katter’s Australian Party (KAP) has today offered to devise a plan to safely export hundreds of thousands of Queensland flying foxes to New South Wales with no option for “return to sender”, as part of a proposed “Bat Re-Stocking Program”.
The announcement follows the news that hundreds of bats were flown on a private plane for care at Queensland’s Australia Zoo following the recent NSW bushfires, and that local populations on the ground were likely to have taken a hit during the natural disaster.
It also follows an announcement by Australia Zoo that its ‘flying fox intake’ had sky-rocketed by 750 per cent due to the effects of drought in Queensland, followed more recently by the import of bats to Queensland affected by the NSW/Victoria fires.
While obviously a tongue-in-cheek proposal that should in no way been taken too seriously, the KAP is using this opportunity to call for some common sense to be injected into the way the State Government and Queensland communities handle flying fox populations.
KAP Leader and Traeger MP Robbie Katter said for too long Brisbane had failed to acknowledge through legislation the effect huge populations of flying foxes are having on the towns they inhabit.
Regional communities across Queensland have in recent months been battling with plague proportions of flying foxes, with hundreds of thousands of the animals roosting in urban towns like Charters Towers, Townsville, Ingham, Cairns and Mount Isa at any one time.
More recently, new reports circled that SEQ was also expecting a “flying fox invasion” of upto 600,000 bats, highlighting that no community is immune to the unsustainable numbers seeking refuge in urban areas.
Mr Katter recently made the Minister for Environment and Science, Leanne Enoch, aware of the bat import situation.
He has called for the Minister to detail if the State Government supported the import of bats from interstate and also asked her to clarify if any state money had been spent on the exercise.
Mr Katter said he has no personal issue with flying foxes, but believes it is ludicrous that Queensland’s Nature Conservation Act 1992 has enshrined their rights to the point that their well-being is routinely being prioritised ahead of people.
He said the latest news of the import of bats to Queensland was a symbolic slap in the face to the communities which have been battling plague proportions of the animals for weeks, months and in some cases, years.

Anyone who doubts Rupert Murdoch’s role in the political chaos that has played out in recent days has never worked for him at a senior level.
Murdoch’s annual visits to Australia invariably trigger seismic events both in and outside News Corp, the company he’s presided over for decades.
So is it any surprise that Malcolm Turnbull has lost his job less than a fortnight after Murdoch arrived here? Of course it isn’t.
Murdoch flew in on August 10 and set about doing what he always does: he attended the annual News Awards, which fete the company’s best and brightest journalists, conducted one-on-ones with his editors and then signed off on the inevitable promotions, demotions and executions of the company’s most senior staff.
(I once endured all three on one of his visits – surviving a relatively benign one-on-one with Murdoch, accepting a News Award and then getting sacked, all in a matter of days.)
For good measure Murdoch also attended the 75th birthday of the Institute of Public Affairs on Monday night and was interviewed on stage with former Liberal PM, John Howard, by one of the media tycoon’s preferred columnists, Janet Albrechtsen.
Throughout all this he would have been forming a view that Turnbull’s time was up – in fact, he probably arrived with that view – and then imparted that message to his editors.
He wouldn’t have had to tell his columnists or his TV commentators because they arrived at that view months ago and have been preaching it ad nauseum. Foremost here have been Andrew Bolt, Miranda Devine and Peta Credlin.
They have been aided by an army of Sydney shock jocks, notably Alan Jones, Ray Hadley and Paul Murray.
In the end it took just 11 days after Murdoch’s arrival to bring about a party room spill. It played out less than 24 hours after that IPA appearance.
While much of Tuesday’s party room drama was driven by Tony Abbott and his ultra-conservative cohorts, there were plenty of willing executioners within News Corp, its various arms and Sydney’s blowhard broadcasters.
Turnbull alluded to these internal and external agents of regime change at his extraordinary press conference on Thursday afternoon in Canberra.
“A minority in the party room, supported by others outside the parliament, have sought to bully, intimidate others into making this change of leadership,” he said.
He avoided specifics, but it was clear who he was referring to.
Channel Nine political editor Chris Uhlmann had made the same point on Thursday morning, telling Today viewers hours before the Turnbull press conference that “everyone from the PM down has pointed out to me that they believe there has been a campaign waged against them”.
Uhlmann went on: “We are talking about The Australian, The Daily Telegraph, tabloid newspapers around the country, 2GB in Sydney led by Alan Jones and Ray Hadley, and Sky News in particular with its evening line-up, are waging a war against the prime minister of Australia.”
He’s right, of course.
Predictably, the News Corp backlash was swift, with various operatives condemning Uhlmann’s comments as “disgusting” and “outrageous”. They should get out more often.
Journalists traditionally tread a fine line in leadership contests, forced to sift through leaks, whispers and background conversations when reporting a fast-moving story. On this occasion though, too many appeared to cross it. And most of those work for News Corp or its entities.
Their willingness to insert themselves into the story was a long, long way from traditional journalism’s demands of objectivity, fairness, balance and a genuine search for truth. I fear it won’t be a one-off either.
The front pages of the company’s tabloids were also firmly against Turnbull, the Herald Sun branding him “Dead Mal Walking” and the Courier-Mail welcoming candidate Dutton with “The Pete Is On”.
The choir was pretty clearly singing from the same song sheet. This is not entirely unexpected. As many have observed on this and other continents, Rupert has form in this regard.
Time and again it’s been shown that he likes to meddle in the politics of the countries his outlets operate in. Just last month The Washington Post reported that he talks with US President Donald Trump every day.
This week’s events and Murdoch’s role in them were another reminder that recent law changes have created media monsters that even prime ministers have reason to fear.
Turnbull has now paid with his job because on some level he failed Murdoch and his minions. The simplest explanation is he was perceived as just too liberal.
The real beneficiary of all this is Bill Shorten. But he shouldn’t dwell on his good fortune for too long.
That’s because the treatment of Turnbull by News Corp inevitably throws up this question: If Murdoch and Co will go to such lengths to oust a Liberal leader, what will they do to keep Labor from power?

How many people know there is a ‘Bill of Rights’ bill sitting on the table in the House of Representatives in Canberra which already has survived a first reading.
It is called the Bill of Rights Act, 2017, tabled by Tasmania Independent MP, Andrew Wilkie.
According to Mr Wilkie it is a bill for an Act relating to the human rights and fundamental freedoms of all Australians and all people in Australia, and for related purposes.
This bill paves the way, setting the framework for Turnbull’s republic.
Mr Wilkie is obviously unaware we already have the inalienable Bill of Rights 1688, which cannot be altered by any parliament.
“If you were not worried before you need to be very concerned now”
The objects of this Act are:
15 (a) to promote universal respect for, and observance of, human
16 rights and fundamental freedoms for all persons without
17 discrimination; and
18 (b) to that end, to enact an Australian Bill of Rights giving effect
19 to certain provisions of:
20 (i) the International Covenant on Civil and Political Rights
21 done at New York on 16 December 1966; and
22 (ii) the International Covenant on Economic, Social and
23 Cultural Rights done at New York on 16 December
24 1966; and
25 (iii) the Convention on the Rights of the Child done at New
26 York on 20 November 1989;
27 being guided by:
28 (iv) the Declaration on the Rights of Mentally Retarded
29 Persons; and
1 (v) the Declaration on the Rights of Disabled Persons; and
2 (vi) the Declaration on the Elimination of All Forms of
3 Intolerance and of Discrimination based on Religion or
4 Belief; and
5 (c) to ensure that any person whose rights or freedoms as set out
6 in the Australian Bill of Rights are infringed by or under any
7 law in relation to which that Bill of Rights operates has an
8 effective remedy; and
9 (d) to promote, enhance and secure, as paramount objectives, the
10 freedom and dignity of the human person, equality of
11 opportunity for all persons and full and free participation by
12 all Australians in public affairs and public debate.
A series of videos compiled by www.sosnews.org we have selected evidence to the people of Australia that the Port Arthur shooting was not cut and dried as your government would have we the people believe. To suggest mentally challenged Martin Bryant with very low IQ, and the intellect of a nine year old child could out shoot any trained military marksmen alone raises a false flag. Further , one of hundreds of pertinent questions must be – “how did Bryant manage this alleged skill and accuracy as a left handed person when witnesses inside the cafe collectively state the shooter was right handed?

David Walter appeared in the Cairns Magistrates Court on January 24 to appeal against his bankruptcy. The former police prosecutor has battled long and hard against what he says is a failed legal system spawned by an unlawful system of government, since at least 1973 or as he probably since 1966, the year decimal currency was introduced to Australia.
He was bankrupted by four shire councils as a non-party to actions taken by the councils against ratepayers for refusing to pay rates. In what was a first ever action of this nature, Walter experienced judicial and political corruption on a scale not seen in Queensland.
The letter to the Magistrates Court is largely self-explanatory. In a letter to Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth he says the political parties have formed Parliaments of Australia, to create Corporations Registered in Washington DC, using a foreign currency and measurements in contradiction of the Commonwealth of Australia Constitution Act.
That has left the assets of the people and our Common Law rights and the laws of God in the hands of private people inside the Preamble of the Commonwealth of Australia Constitution Act to form Corporations across the Commonwealth of Australia, some 20 years ago.
As you are totally aware that was done by the Members of the Registered Political Parties inside the Legislative Assembly of the Constitution Act 1867 Qld.
David has lost his property, stolen by corrupt courts and even more corrupt solicitors and barristers. After the Culleton debacle and an unlawful property seizure west of Townsville last week, the people are finally waking up there is no Common Law and no legal redress for civil or criminal matters in Australia, only political party policies developed by members of registered political parties inside the Legislative Assembly of the Constitution Act 1867 Qld.
David Walter has urged readers to tell political party members that the system has failed miserably and should be rectified.
