Andrews’ strategy cracks as top cop and CMO deny requesting curfew

By TONY MOBILIFONITIS
VICTORIA’S Chief Health Officer Brett Sutton and Victoria Police Commissioner Shane Patton have denied requesting the night-time curfew over the state.
The move could throw into legal doubt the draconian anti-virus measure which locks Victorians in their homes between 9pm and 5am.
Comm. Patton made the admission on 3AW radio on Thursday morning. ”I was never consulted,” he said. “I’ve made enquiries to determine if anyone in the organisation was briefed on the matter.”
He said police were only told about the curfew a few hours before it was due to begin on August 2. Chief Commissioner Patton’s comment contradicted Andrews who on Wednesday said police had given feedback that the restriction would make enforcement easier. And the admission of CHO Sutton that he never requested it either left Dictator Dan floundering and blustering as the media stepped up and started doing a long overdue job of questioning this entire psychological operation. 

Andrews’ strategy, backed up by dozens of spin doctors on big government salaries covering all manner of media, has been to control the whole destructive economic shutdown with a daily ritual of solemnly announcing the death numbers – only at times broken down to age groups and never mentioning comorbidities – and so-called “cases”, which are merely test results but which are never broken down into asymptomatic, non-infectious, infectious, mild or serious.

But it appears the daily game is wearing thin, following Andrews’ much despised extension of the lockdown and curfew.
According to News.com.au reporter Alexis Carey “Daniel Andrews copped a grilling following hours of finger pointing regarding who exactly was behind Melbourne’s curfew rule”.
“Brett Sutton has said this, but you’re now saying this – how can we trust you and follow the rules?” Mr Andrews was asked by a reporter during a heated exchange.
Andrews was then forced to double down on the so-called curfew rule and insisted it would not be revoked.
“What I’d say is that we’ve got a clear strategy, numbers are falling, the strategy is working, limiting movement is a critically important part of that, and our approach to that will not be changing,” he said.
Throughout the briefing, journalists repeatedly returned to the curly curfew question, but Mr Andrews stuck to his guns, the reporter noted. “We’re not removing it because it works,” Mr Andrews said.
“And if we remove it and make the job of police even harder – because it’s not easy to make sure that people are doing the right thing – then that will just mean we potentially have more cases, and opening up safely and steadily is further away than it should be.
“This is the right decision, it is limiting movement, it is making the very challenging work of Victoria Police just that little bit easier. And on that basis, limit movement, limit the virus.”
Andrews went on to brush the issue aside saying ultimately it was he “and the wider government who were responsible for the law”.

Police swarm Freedom Day protest, desecrating Melbourne’s historic monument to freedom

By EDITOR, CAIRNS NEWS

Police in riot gear marched at the double towards the protesters in a blatant act of intimidation. Nothing like this for Black Lives Matters protesters in Melbourne in June.
A wild scuffle broke out as police surrounded one of the protesters near the steps of the Shrine of Remembrance. Police systematically surrounded protesters, sending in riot squad members to arrest them one by one. Protesters offered no resistance.

VICTORIAN dictator Dan Andrews’ political police in full riot gear, on horses and on foot swarmed protesters at Melbourne’s Shrine of Remembrance, the site where the sacrifices for our nation’s sacred freedoms are remembered.

A few dozen of the several thousand protesters who made it to the Shrine were surrounded by police, driven back down the steps, encircled and arrested one by one while other protesters numbering about 2000 headed down to nearby St Kilda to avoid the melee. Media reported about 17 arrested.

Some division in the protest ranks arose late in the week when a number of protest leaders including James Bartolo, who was raided and arrested on Friday, backed off from the protest, saying it would be used by Andrews to extend his draconian shutdown of the state.

The police overkill was a stark picture of destructive forces unleashed against Australia by a hard-left Labor government, operating under the protection of, and likely backdoor funding from, globalist Davos-Gates-Rockefeller forces driving a global eugenics/population control program and attempt to derail the Trump presidential election.

In June the same Victoria Police openly expressed support for the neo-Marxist Black Lives Matters protest, some of them even “taking a knee” in public. One of the BLM speakers at that rally said “f… Australia. Burn it to the ground.” Not a peep from Victoria Police. That was “honourable”, but a protest defending historic rights and freedoms was worthy of suppression “for public safety”.

National media reports sided with Andrews as he continued with his deceitful “announce-the-daily-deaths-and-infections” game while destroying the state’s small business sector. Some radio reports made a point of accusing protesters of “hurling abuse at police” and “punching police”. An ABC TV reporter said media were on the receiving end of abuse as well. That’s no wonder, given the Melbourne media’s complicity in Andrews’ daily psyop of “sombre” death and infection announcements that fail to detail comorbidities, regular nursing home deaths or asymptomatic COVID cases.

Andrews, however, is under intense pressure, as even channel 7’s morning show crew expressed shock when it was revealed during the week that the dictator was fiddling the numbers for political purpose.

The Melbourne protest was given moral support at other marches across the nation in the state capitals. The protesters everywhere chanted a simple, poignant message: “Freedom! Freedom!” Never in this nation’s history has that underlying national value been under such diabolical attack. The Freedom Revolution continues.

PNG cocaine bust: Italian police say Mafia so entrenched in Australian politics and business it is impossible to stamp out

PNG cocaine bust: Australia is a “state of Italy”

Italian police have now classed the mafia in Australia as so entrenched, they believe it would be impossible to stamp out completely with Australian police only able to make busts where they can.

ITALIAN police have carried out a series of raids to smash a Mafia-led operation to smuggle cocaine to Australia that police say godfathers have now divided into six zones for trafficking drugs, extortion and money laundering.

And such is the entrenchment of Mafia links to Australia now, authorities say the country is virtually a state of Italy and it would be impossible to ever wipe out.

Authorities have uncovered a treasure trove of intelligence related to the fearsome Calabrian-based ’ Ndrangheta mafia group and their operations in Australia including members’ infiltration of key areas to assist in their trade, including transport and politics.

The police operation last week with raids on more than a dozen homes in Calabria has seen 14 members of clans linked to ’Ndrangheta arrested and charged with “criminal association linked to international drugs tracking”, namely to Australia and Canada.

One of eight refused bail is a police officer tasked with protection of a port but instead was allegedly providing guidance on evading controls and security for drug shipments.

Leading Melbourne mafia figure Rocco Arico was jailed in 2017 for drugs, extortion and weapons offences

The case was the culmination of five years of work by the Central Operational Service of the Italian National Police, a specialist Italian police squad from Calabria and the district’s Anti-Mafia Prosecutor’s Office.

Despite the success of arrests and uncovering intelligence on international operations through extensive listening devices, taps and surveillance, it may not assist the overall ’Ndrangheta crime fight in      Australia.

Italian police have now classed the mafia in Australia as so entrenched, they believe it would be impossible to stamp out completely with Australian police only able to make busts where they can.

“Australia is not a target nation any more, it’s now like a state of Italy from a criminal perspective,” a senior Italian officer, speaking on condition of anonymity, told News Corp Australia.

“They are entrenched in their activities and have been for a long time. They have not got an expansion strategy with your country any more, it’s not expansion, it’s consolidation. Australia, Canada, Belgium, United States, Germany are all countries where these crimes are being consolidated.”

’Ndrangheta work as “strictly a family-based enterprise, affiliation having to be through blood relation”.

According to evidence gathered by authorities, the group had designated six “locales” in Australia for Calabrian-linked mafia, not necessarily by state but by powerbase for extended family support and drug importation markets as well as large-scale construction contracts, paying of backhanders and racketeering. Each locale has its own mob boss that reports directly to Italy

Former WA mayor faces accusations he led mafia cell

Court documents from ongoing proceedings in Italy also show Italian prosecutors allege Tony Vallelonga, who is the former mayor of Stirling in Perth, is the local leader of a mafia cell in Perth.

Court files allege that Mr Vallelonga is responsible for “making the most important decisions, imparting orders or imposing sanctions on other subordinate associates”.

The files allege Mr Vallelonga was concerned about a rival who wanted to start his own cell on Mr Vallelonga’s turf with the approval of Calabrian bosses.

Mr Vallelonga was allegedly recorded in an Italian laundromat recounting a conversation with his competitor where he allegedly said: “As long as I’m alive, you don’t get a locale [local mafia cell] … and that’s that!”

To which his rival responded: “You can’t be the man any more … enough!”

It comes after the prosecutors sought to question Mr Vallelonga over his dealings in Calabria with a notorious mafia boss.

Mr Valleonga has always denied the allegations and in a statement sent to the ABC, Mr Vallelonga’s lawyer said any allegation the former mayor had ever been involved in criminal activity was “completely without any foundation”.

Outside of the political arena, Italian police have identified another Australian allegedly working in Calabria who is part of the influential Alvaro family.

Some members of the family were recently subjects of an international anti-mafia operation when authorities seized tonnes of cocaine and made dozens of arrests.

Confidential Italian and Australian police files state that the Alvaro clan has arms in Australia.

They are allegedly headed by Adelaide construction figure Paul Alvaro, 64, and a New South Wales man.

The pair are among figures around the country, including in Griffith, New South Wales.

A police assessment said the individuals operate as “an executive board of directors” for the Calabrian Mafia.
