Former Prime Minister John Howard comes out of mothballs to demonise gun owners yet again!
This autocrat of the Liberal Party lives in another world. This is the man who allowed Port Arthur to occur. This man knew there was to be a psychological operation about to be waged against the Australian people. It was our first real, large scale terrorist attack putting aside the 1970’s rubbish bin bomb in Melbourne, which on the facts today was the first psy-ops carried out with the knowledge of a few in authority.
Howard and others knew the Tasmanian massacre was about to occur. It was not perpetrated by an ineffectual and incompetent young man with an IQ if 60.
Cairns News has published much about the Port Arthur shootings. Martin Bryant was not capable of inserting a box magazine into a Colt AR 10, 7.62mm assault rifle. This testimony was given to police by a Tasmanian gunsmith. This gunsmith was pilloried and harassed by authorities until he lost his business and fled the State.
Martin Bryant was charged for mass murder which he was incapable of doing. Simple facts that were buried by a 30 year ban on court transcript publication.
Now we have a raving Jesuit such as former National Party deputy Prime Minister Tim Fischer, again bagging and demonising gun owners. Tim should explain to the Australian people why he left Parliament overnight. The Federal Liberal member for the Cairns-based electorate of Leichardt, Warren Entsch was involved in Fischer’s sudden departure from Parliament.
Fischer also might like to explain what happened to him when subsequently he was resident in the Vatican as Australian Ambassador to the Holy See.
The Jesuits are the hitmen of the Catholic church, pure and simple. Fischer was an army officer who served in Vietnam. He and the Bolshevik television personality Ray Martin led the campaign to disarm the Australian people.
Now after an Islamic terrorist attack in Sydney that, as Senator Leyonhjelm said today, could never have occurred in most States of America because its citizens are allowed the right of self-defence. The Islamic terrorist would know he was interfering with people who might be carrying a firearm. That alone would have been a deterrent.
At least one person in the café could have been carrying a firearm.
The mad muslim would have been shot immediately. The psychological distress and economic savings to the country are immeasurable.
As the Senator said: “Our citizens are victims waiting to be hurt.”
For many years Australian defence experts have advocated arming the population with military rifles based on the Swiss citizens militia model where all responsible adults keep a government issued rifle in their home.
They undergo periods of mandatory military training in readiness for any invader. Not surprising, there is little recorded crime against the body or property in Switzerland. Can anyone remember Switzerland having ever been invaded?
There are no violent home invasions that we see every week in Brisbane and other larger centres. Because responsible Swiss citizens have been taught how to use a firearm.
How much longer do we have to put up with the treachery of the Labor Party’s Bill Shorten, the Greens Hanson-Young and the likes of Howard and Fischer. These people should have been tried for terrorism.
Watch this video featuring Wendy Scurr the first person into the broad arrow cafe after the Port Arthur massacre. She has a completely different story to tell from the mainstream media , the police, and the federal and state governments. Find out just how much disinformation and myths have been created around the pre-planned Port Arthur massacre. Watching this video with an open mind you will never be the same again.
How is it this so-called ‘lone nut’ shooter had been previously incarcerated at a NSW jail under a different name? According to prison sources how is it the FBI had this ‘Iranian’ infiltrator tagged and not Australian police?
Lack of data records prevents serious crime investigations, AFP Commissioner tells parliamentary committee investigating new security laws
Australian Federal Police Commissioner Andrew Colvin has warned of “grave implications” for terrorism investigations if telecommunications companies are not forced to keep phone and internet data.
Commissioner Andrew Colvin and other senior security officials were giving evidence to a parliamentary committee inquiring into proposed legislation making it mandatory for telcos to keep certain types of data for two years.
Mr Colvin told the hearing in Canberra agencies could not be left to “rely on luck” to deal with serious threats and serious crimes.
“I could not understate enough that it would have grave implications for law enforcement’s ability in this country to investigate, deter and disrupt potential terrorist acts,” Mr Colvin said.
He said that as more telcos were entering the market, less data was being kept and for shorter periods.
He emphasised that data had played a key role in terrorism, corruption and child exploitation investigations.
Mr Colvin gave the example of an online child exploitation case in 2013, where the lack of internet records retained by service providers prevented the investigation of 156 potential offenders.
“If those ISPs [internet service providers] face the consistent obligation to retain data for two years as proposed under this Bill, it’s quite possible additional persons of interest, some of whom appeared to be involved in serious offending, could have been identified and properly investigated,” he said.
Of the AFP investigations that started between July and September this year, telecommunications data has been used in 92 per cent of counterterrorism investigations, 100 per cent of cyber crime investigations, 87 per cent of child protection investigations and 79 per cent of serious organised crime investigations.
The Joint Intelligence and Security Committee was investigating the Government’s third wave of national security laws into phone and computer data retention.
Committee chairman Dan Tehan earlier asked whether the Government needed further powers in the wake of the Sydney siege.
Mr Tehan said he expected the Government to separately consider whether its new suite of measures would be enough to prevent lone wolf attacks.
“We’ve got to have a proper inquiry about that,” Mr Tehan said.
“We don’t want to get ahead of ourselves and say, ‘OK, we need to do this, this and this’.
“Let’s examine the facts, let’s have a proper look at it and then work out, ‘OK, do we need to make some changes?'”
The committee observed a minute’s silence in recognition of the hostages killed in the Sydney siege yesterday.
Mr Tehan started today’s hearing by acknowledging the violence and describing it as “a despicable attack on Australians at home”.
“Tragically two innocent people have lost their lives, Katrina Dawson and Tori Johnson,” he said.
“The impact on their family and their friends will be deep and everlasting.
“Threats of terrorism or terrorist acts will not change this nation, they will only strengthen our resolve.
“The values that we hold dear as Australians are the best way to defeat this evil.”
The committee was set to examine the next package of proposed counterterrorism laws.
Those listed to front the committee today include Australia’s top spy, ASIO Director General Duncan Lewis.
The committee was also expected to hear from the Australian Crime Commission and the Attorney-General’s department.
