According to a new survey more than half of Americans do not want COVID-19 vaccine. The study has also looked into the concerns among people reluctant to receive the jabs, with 68 per cent of people saying they are worried about the long term effects of the vaccines.
More than half of Americans say they want to delay getting a Covid vaccine until they know more information or even refuse it altogether, according to a new survey.
Only 41 per cent of those surveyed said they are eager to receive the shots as soon as possible, according to the tracking project by the non-profit Kaiser Family Foundation.
In the Kaiser study carried out in January, 31 per cent said they want to wait and see further results from the vaccines, seven per cent said they would only get inoculated if they were made to, while 13 per cent said they will definitely not receive the shots.
The study has also looked into the concerns among people reluctant to receive the jabs, with 68 per cent of people saying they are worried about the long term effects of the vaccines.

Other fears that the vaccine could cause Covid-19 and it might cause serious side effects are more pronounced in the groups less keen to receive the shots.
A YouGov poll last month found that vaccine skepticism is higher in the US than in many other countries.
COVID-19 never left the page upon which it was conceived
by Heather Warfield, RN, MSN and JB Lewis, B.S. Biology
The name, COVID19, was created to segregate it from the legitimate Coronavirus. This was done so that the original, not-so-dangerous virus, can be turned into an invisible terrorist – mixing a little truth with a lot of lies seems to authenticate the issue in the minds of nearly everyone and makes it more believable. By declaring COVID19 as a new bug (novel), a version without a past or known ailments or causes, the idea of it can be used as a (weapon) to control the public at large. In this way, any number of false terrors can be attributed to it; a ghost virus that can (get) you from anywhere and by any means, they say. It is time to realize the media and leaders do not have your best interest at heart.
Side Note: No One Has EVER had COVID-19. Do not confuse it with the actual Coronavirus.
COVID-19 is Not a virus. It is a fictional talking point created by the John Hopkins School of Medicine, The Council on Foreign Relations, The World Health Organization, The Center For Disease Control, the Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation, and a few others; conceived only as a tool of manipulation.
It is important for you to know that on October 19, 2019, these groups hosted, what they called, a Tabletop Exercise of a Fictional Novel Coronavirus Pandemic?
Those players could have chosen any number of viruses to execute their Virus Exercise; yet, they invented a fictional virus that magically leapt off the page and became a pandemic one month later. Global populations accepted this pandemic as real because the world at large had no idea the exercise was underway. And yes, it was the intention of the exercise to deceive the world.
How do we know the coronavirus pandemic is fictional?
On their website plan, they call it fictional by stating, “…for the scenario, we modeled a fictional novel coronavirus pandemic.”
Event 201: https://www.centerforhealthsecurity.org/event201/
More than a coincidence? We’ll even go a step further and say, calling it an exercise is a cover for the actual False Pandemic plan going into motion. It is time to be logical, reasonable, and use our basic common sense.
EVENT 201 and COVID-19 Are The Same Thing … https://livinginconsciousness.blogspot.com/2020/04/event-201-and-covid19.html
Why Use Coronavirus In A False Pandemic:
Because blending the name of a known virus with a fictional one makes confusing the public a lot easier. The news has been doing this for decades – there are no new tricks here. Still, the public continues to believe it.
Why Is COVID-19 False:
Animals of varying types have been known to carry certain strains of a virus called coronavirus; however, these sequences do not have a history of transmuting to humans via normal contact. A virus of this nature must be taught how to invade another species cellular makeup by manipulating the genetic code of the cells. Then, it has to be injected into a human via a vaccine or some other invasive measure; say, if an infected animal bit you. Even then, one would not necessarily become sick or shed the virus to someone else.
Of the people who have had the flu shot, or other vaccines, within the last 15 to 20 years, it is possible, but not guaranteed, that a portion of the population has one or more of the 6 known strains of the animal based Coronavirus, or other animal sequences, lying harmlessly dormant in their system. This would be due to several modern vaccines being synthesized through animal tissue. What the population Does Not have is a COVID-19 infection. COVID-19 never left the page upon which it was conceived. There are those in positions of power that are making every effort to purposely confuse the Coronavirus and COVID-19 in order to mislead everyone. The art of confusing the public is not a new one …
Compulsory vaccination and associated penalties for refusal are unlawful
Kick out the fascists of the Liberal and Labor Parties for promulgating a false Covid pandemic
The Commonwealth Constitution of Australia states categorically that Political Party ‘Governments’ cannot force compulsory vaccination upon the public. This section cannot be altered and any penalties such as banning kids from school or a loss of social security payments to parents are unlawful.
Any amendment to the Commonwealth of Australia Constitution Act 1901 MUST be voted on in a referendum before the Constitution can be changed.
State legislation is always subordinate to a Constitutional Act. All state legislation imposing covid restrictions are NULL and VOID. We, the people of the Commonwealth of Australia, can lawfully refuse to obey any state legislation that is against the constitution.
In 1946 Australians voted in a referendum that asked if they would authorise the so-called political party governments to force anyone to undergo a medical or dental procedure without their consent.
Here is what the referendum asked, and the voting result:
Referendum 1946 CONSTITUTION ALTERATION (SOCIAL SERVICES) 1946
Do you approve of the proposed law for the Alteration of the Constitution, entitled Constitution Alteration (Social Services) 1946?
THE FIRST QUESTION
CONSTITUTION ALTERATION (SOCIAL SERVICES) 1946 SOCIAL SERVICES
New paragraph to be added to section 51 of the Constitution:
(xxiiiA) the provision of maternity allowances, widows’ pensions, child endowment, unemployment, pharmaceutical, sickness and hospital benefits, medical and dental services (but not so as to authorize any form of civil conscription), benefits to students and family allowances;
Q1. The referendum was carried.
All six States recorded a YES vote. Nationally 54.39% of electors voted YES
The question was approved, but with a condition:
medical and dental services (but not so as to authorize any form of civil conscription)
This means that the People of the Commonwealth of Australia denied the government any power to force people to undergo any medical or dental procedure without their consent.
You do not have to consent!

If you are stopped by the police or the covid cops show them this document and explain to them politely that they are also men / women of the Commonwealth of Australia with one vote each. They do not have any authority to break the law.
Forcing people to wear a mask, or undertake any test (including for covid or RBT) is a crime under the Crimes Act 1914, as codified in our Commonwealth of Australia Constitution Act 1901 S. 51 (xxiiiA)
Inform them that if they continue to demand that you submit to their unlawful orders you will citizens arrest them and summon them to appear before a Common Law Court.
If they continue to demand that you submit to their demands, utter the words:
I hereby arrest you under my common law power to citizens arrest anyone I observe committing a crime. By insisting that I submit to your demands you are committing an indictable crime against me. You are hereby required to supply your name, badge number and police station you are working from.
Make sure you get as much information from them and inform them that they will be required to appear before a Common Law Court when they receive the summons, and that if convicted by a jury of 12 of their peers they will be held personally responsible for any harm they have caused.

Scott Morrison’s Successful Year
By: Rossleigh – Australian Independent Media Network
Scott Morrison has had a really successful year! I know this, and not just because the media keep telling me what a great year he’s had.
Compare his year with Peter Dutton who, at the start of the year, wanted Border Force to be the unquestioned ministry in charge of everything, had to announce that they had nothing to do with keeping our borders safe when it came to quarantine. Or, indeed anything that didn’t involve leaky boats.
Or compare it with Alan Tudge who got caught with his proverbial pants down and ended the year being given the Education Ministry as punishment. (Just before the lawyers get consulted, I’m not talking about Tudge’s personal life here. I’m referring to the way his conduct was described as “criminal” by a judge, which must have reminded some people of when he, Michael Sukkar and Greg Hunt all had to apologise for their comments, so that they weren’t found guilty of contempt of court.) While some suggested that Tudge should have lost his position on the front bench for any number of reasons, nothing he did was a hanging offence.
Undoubtedly you’ve heard that expression before and guess it could explain why no Coalition ministers ever lose their portfolio when it’s established that their actions were the result of incompetence or corruption. “Minister Miscreaent did overlook his purchase of property in the area and failed to declare his conflict of interest before overseeing a change that resulted in a large windfall but he has since updated his assets appropriately and this certainly not a hanging offence.” Given that – in Australia – there is no capital punishment, even for murder, then nothing actually IS a hanging offence, so obviously if there are no hanging offences, then there is no crime or misdemeanour for which a minister could be regarded as having gone too far.
Yes, the expression “not a hanging offence” is silly but not as silly as the phrase “gold standard”. When Scott Morrison said that he wasn’t worried about the recent COVID-19 outbreak in New South Wales because they were the “gold standard”, I worried that our PM had no Understanding of what the term gold standard means. Simply, it’s a monetary system where a country’s currency or paper money has a value directly linked to gold. The USA abandoned it under Nixon and, in 2020, no country uses it. So was Morrison suggesting that NSW approach to the virus was something out-of-date and obsolete or was he suggesting that it was backed by gold?
Either way, one has to conclude that he thinks that Gladys has had the same sort of great year that he’s had. To recap briefly on why it’s been such a great year for ScoMo:
- He began the year in trouble, not merely for going off to Hawaii while the nations burned, but for having his office lie about it.
- HIs explanation of not being the one to hold a hose, led to some ribald comments and lots of mocking.
- He attempted a reset with lots of photos of maps and firefighters, where he was pointing in a way that suggested he had something to contribute, leading to various media outlets telling us that he’d learned his lesson.
- His attempt to shake the hands of unwilling people undercut his attempt at empathy, leading to suggestions that his empathy coach may, in fact, have been Andrew Bolt.
- With the outbreak of COVID-19 in Australia, he got to show his true leadership by telling us that there was nothing to worry about and that he was going to the football, but because of potential backlash, he changed his mind.
- He told us that schools were safe just before a number of schools were shut down because of the outbreaks of the virus.
- The auditor-general released a scathing report about how taxpayer funds were used in the lead-up to the previous election prompting the phrase “sports rorts” to be used everywhere except for Parliament where the term was deemed unacceptable.
- He left various people out of JobKeeper such as university staff
- He told us that we couldn’t stay under the doona forever.
- He showed that even though Australia was a small nation who couldn’t possible take the lead or even influence any action on climate change, we could be the world leader when it came to demanding an inquiry into China and the Coronavirus.
- His government failed to deliver the promise surplus in the May budget, but they did at least not have a deficit because they announced that there was really no point to doing a budget when they had no idea what was going on.
- He announced a big package for the Arts which we later discovered wouldn’t be delivered until they were back up and running and no longer needed money as desperately.
- He handled the escalating trade problem with China by telling them that they were wrong about everything.
- China has now stopped taking our coal as well as barley, wine and other imports.
- It was discovered that very little money had been spent on bushfire relief.
- Various ministers showed themselves to be corrupt, incompetent or both.
- Robodebt was settled, but the government still insisted they’d done nothing wrong every through they paid out over a billion dollars.
- His government delivered the largest deficit in our history and went deeper into debt than all the previous federal governments combined which people agreed was necessary because of the pandemic.
- His government announced that they wouldn’t be worrying about budget repair until unemployment was back down to appropriate levels.
- Some of his photoshoots are so obviously staged that it’s embarrassing, but in the most recent ones, the idea that standing by oneself in the country with your hands in your pockets seems to suggest that one is wanting to be a model for R.M Williams and not that one is a man of the people who belongs in the bush.
- There’s so many more things to add to this list that I could keep going for an hour and someone is bound to write one I forget in the comments that I’m just going to say “and the rest”.
So, all things considered, Morrison has had a great year. In spite of doing things that would have had the media calling for rioting in the streets, he has been congratulated, praised and has a high approval rating in the polls. Yes, the fact that he’s made just about every mistake in the book and it’s only been the premiers and the National Cabinet that’s saved him from himself. he’s still PM.
Anybody who’s managed to demonstrate such incompetence, with so many mis-steps and such a lack of empathy and not only keep their job, but actually have the media talk about them having a great year, has certainly had a great year…
PM says free vaccines for all, omits the word compulsory
from Prime Minister’s office
Australians will be among the first in the world to receive a COVID-19 vaccine, if it proves successful, through an agreement between the Australian Government and UK-based drug company AstraZeneca.
Under the deal, every single Australian will be able to receive the University of Oxford COVID-19 vaccine for free, should trials prove successful, safe and effective.
Prime Minister Scott Morrison said the Oxford University trial was in a phase three stage and more work was needed to prove its viability.
“The Oxford vaccine is one of the most advanced and promising in the world, and under this deal we have secured early access for every Australian,” the Prime Minister said.
“If this vaccine proves successful we will manufacture and supply vaccines straight away under our own steam and make it free for 25 million Australians.
“However, there is no guarantee that this, or any other, vaccine will be successful, which is why we are continuing our discussions with many parties around the world while backing our own researchers at the same time to find a vaccine.
“We are taking advice from Australia’s best medical and scientific expertise to ensure that the Government’s work to select, produce and purchase COVID-19 vaccines and treatments is based on the best available knowledge.”
The Prime Minister also remains committed to ensuring early access to the vaccine for countries in our Pacific family, as well as regional partners in Southeast Asia.
The Government has also released Australia’s COVID-19 Vaccine and Treatment Strategy, guided by a group of medical and industry experts.
The Strategy sets out Australia’s approach to acquire doses of safe and effective COVID-19 vaccines based on:
1. Research and development
2. Purchase and manufacturing
3. International partnerships
4. Regulation and safety Immunisation administration and monitoring
The first announcements under the strategy are the signing of a Letter of Intent with AstraZeneca to supply the University of Oxford’s COVID-19 vaccine candidate to Australia and a consumables contract with Becton Dickinson for the supply of needles and syringes.
The Letter of Intent covers vaccine development, production and distribution. It commits to production of the vaccine in Australia, subject to safety and effectiveness.
A final formal agreement will include distribution, timing and price of the vaccine.
Becton Dickinson has been contracted to supply vital consumables, such as needles and syringes, to ensure that we can deliver vaccine doses as soon as we have them.
Minister for Health, Greg Hunt, said “From early on Australian officials led by my department has been meeting with developers and manufacturers of a number of promising vaccine candidates, both domestic and international, over recent months.
“We are confident these actions and targeted investments will put us in the best possible position to secure early access to safe and effective vaccines for Australia.”
The country’s most experienced scientists, biotech and pharmaceutical experts have been brought together to provide advice on acquiring a portfolio of safe and effective COVID-19 vaccinations.
The COVID-19 Vaccines and Treatments for Australia – Science and Industry Technical Advisory Group met for the first time earlier this week.
The advisory group is led by Professor Brendan Murphy, Secretary of the Department of Health, who has a leading role in managing the Government’s pandemic response.
The group will also provide advice on implementing Australia’s COVID-19 Vaccine and Treatment Strategy that drives the Government’s work with the states and territories, research organisations, industry, regulators and other countries.
Minister for Industry, Science and Technology Karen Andrews said Australia’s manufacturing capability is a huge asset in the push to deliver a COVID vaccine.
“The Australian pharmaceutical industry and its ability to produce vaccines is already among the best in the world and that puts us in a strong position to be able to roll out a COVID vaccine as quickly as possible,” Minister Andrews said.
“Through a coordinated approach and strategic investments we can also improve our knowledge and strengthen our manufacturing capability to respond in the future.”
Australia is contributing significantly to vaccine development work both in Australia and around the world, investing $333 million in vaccines, therapeutics and COVID medicines – including $256 million in vaccines.
This includes $5 million for the University of Queensland’s innovative “molecular clamp” COVID-19 vaccine. This Australian vaccine has commenced trials here in Australia.
The University of Queensland has partnered with CSL to manufacture its vaccine here in Australia. CSL has made a commitment that its dose allocation of the University of Queensland vaccine will be used, at a minimum, to support its long-standing public health commitment to the Australian community
WHO tested papaya and goat samples for Covid; results came back to Tanzania as positive
Dr WHO should stay in his telephone box. Can someone ask PM Morrison to turn off the ABC
As the number of confirmed coronavirus cases explodes across Africa, the creeping involvement of the WHO has made some leaders suspicious of the NGO. Tanzanian President John Magufuli was growing suspicious of the organization, so he reportedly decided to investigate whether the organization was as trustworthy and reliable as it claimed to be.
He played what the local press described as “a trick” on the organization: He sent the WHO samples of a goat, a papaya and a quail for testing.
All three samples reportedly tested positive. When the president heard the news, he reportedly confronted the WHO, then kicked the organization out of the country. Though, to be sure, the WHO has yet to comment on the situation.
That would suggest one of two conclusions: either the strain of SARS-CoV-2 running amok in Tanzania is much, much more infectious than scientists understand, or the WHO has been reporting incorrect results either on purpose (as an attempt to bolster its credibility in the face of President Trump’s attacks) or via error (yet another indication that the WHO truly is “badly brokem” – as Vox described it back in 2015).
Most rational people would probably accept the latter scenario as the most accurate one.
Magufuli has garnered plenty of controversy himself over the past few weeks. He recently requested stockpiles of an ‘herbal tea’ that has been falsely branded as a COVID-19 cure, and has launched investigations impacting domestic labs and even frontline medical workers as he’s claimed the number of positive tests in his country is too high. The reality is that Tanzania doesn’t have much of a outbreak: It has recorded only 503 cases and 21 deaths. Though its mortality rate of 4% would suggest that the true number of cases likely numbers in the thousands.
Following the results, Magufuli fired the head of Tanzania’s national lab, sparking a political firestorm. Of course, though Magufuli has been criticized for trying to play down the impact of the virus, the government has so far refused to answer questions about where its test kits were manufactured, as Al Jazeera points out. On Thursday, the head of the Africa Center for Disease Control and Prevention rejected claims of faulty tests by Tanzania’s president.
The unreliability of COVID-19 tests manufactured in China has been a major problem for the US, and for Europe, as countries and states have been forced to discard PPE purchased in China – often after purchasing it at inflated prices – because only one-third of the masks actually work, and many of the tests have been found to produce positive and negative results more or less at random.
But we’d love to hear Bill Gates regale us with “data-based arguments” about why the WHO is indispensable to the international effort to combat the coronavirus.
NWO puppet Morrison wants to track you with your phone
‘You can check out any time you like but you can never leave…..’
Australian Prime Minister Scott Morrison’s continual support of New World Order policies to turn us into a full-blown police state has exposed his cover by forcing citizens to download a phone tracker app.
The tracking app is under development and Morrison says at least 40 per cent of phone users would have to download it to make it effective.
Daily we see the Coronavirus, which has proven to be less deadly than the common flu in Australia, dropping off the chart since it peaked last week. After a total over-reaction by state governments to the viral threat, a lot of people are asking “what is the real agenda here?”
While we are aware of US President Donald Trump’s ongoing campaign to drain the swamp, Australia’s Deep State as far as we can ascertain, largely have not yet been caught up in Trump’s net which so far has captured immense international pornography rings and reportedly released many thousands of young children trapped by pedophiles in the US.
Naturally the mainstream fake media won’t report on these world news matters but fortunately we have the alternative media which keeps citizens in the loop.
The national agenda as far as we can see is to keep people locked up at home for as long as possible. Before the exit plans start to kick in Scomo and the state Premiers plan to introduce a compulsory vaccine program which will be interfaced with your phone tracking app and control your access to digital banking and government services. Cash, ie, legal tender, soon will become a medium of the past.
The federal government already has admitted as much. Some researchers have established Google’s Bill Gates is up to his eyeballs in vaccine manufacturing and Google has developed software to merge every citizen’s phone, internet identities and facial recognition from driver’s licences, passports and the millions of 5G street cameras into one huge data bank.
Dumbed-down citizenry will be begging for the ‘mark of the beast.’
Facebook, Instagram, Twitter and all the other social media platforms have already amassed and stored this information and it probably in is the data bank awaiting official sanction from the federal government.
Bang! Then we will be monitored with 24/7 surveillance and be welcomed by the Hotel California aka the One World Government.
“Last thing I remember running to the door,
I had to find the passage back to the place I was before,
Relax said the nightman,
We are programmed to receive,
You can check out any time you like,
But you can never leave…”
Lies, damn lies and statistics
The true extent of fatalities due the Covid 19 flu virus will never be known. Obfuscation by nation states, the medical profession and the False News media is overwhelming the outbreak of the virus which has a lower death rate than the common flu..
While we have published the accurate death statistics from Italy the false news media continues on blithely with its distortion under direction of the Deep State.
An Italian Government Scientist has asked the media to report the true fatality rates caused by Covid 19. He said 88 per cent died with the flu and just 12 per cent died from the flu.
Most readers know the real agenda here is to hold as many people indoors for as long as possible while the economy is trashed in a manner not seen since the great depression of the 1930’s.
Prime Minister Morrison, a banker’s man, has already heralded the era of the Deep State’s cashless society by introducing the Currency (Restrictions on the Use of Cash) Bill 2019.
If a vaccine is ever developed, as some researchers claim, it will be laced with microscopic radio receptors which will leave you with the ‘mark of the beast’ for life.
No injected transmitter – no money, no commerce, no job, no pharmaceuticals, no medical attention, no public utilities, no guns, no vehicle registration and your social credit score as determined by thousands of Telstra 5G spy cameras in every street shooting facial recognition images back to the politburo for analysis, will ensure your life is hell on Earth.
Show dissent and you will end up in a re-training facility in the country sitting on once exceptional agricultural land.
Your only income, similar to the majority of the jobless, working and retired population will be dependent upon the ‘government’. Prime Minister Scott Morrison and Opposition Leader Anthony Albanese are scrambling over each other to enact draconian laws which strip every vestige of a free society from every person in Australia.
Any overt dissent will be controlled by United Nations troops and the battle conditioned para-military police in every state. I have extreme doubt the Australian military, bar a few MK Ultra nutcases, will fire on their families and friends.
We have been told Queensland Police have armed themselves with high quality metal detectors and automatic military rifles looking for buried weapons. Already we have Stasi-modelled, military checkpoints around the states doing ID checks, demanding travel permits and searching vehicles. Fortunately so far they have reported few finds.
Without doubt other states and the Federal Police will have followed suit.
My military background helped me put together over 20 years this NWO planned takeover agenda which is now unfolding. Unfortunately city people have been conditioned by a generation of television and computers to think the government is here to help them.
God help Australia!
Federal Government getting set to implement a cashless society on the back of the Coronavirus scam
Coronavirus statistics are flawed worldwide. The economy must not be forsaken on this World Health Organisation contrived lock down of the world population. Australia will never recover from the loss of more than a million jobs.
Coronavirus or Covid 19 is no more dangerous than the common flu.
Tougher times to come across the nation holding off a virus
No order out of chaos
by staff writers
Allowing weddings with only five guests and funerals with 10 mourners are among the police state orders issued by Prime Minister Scott Morrison in a national broadcast tonight. His wide-ranging contradictory edict has excluded schools where many hundreds of kids assemble each day. He said all schools will remain open to function primarily as child minding centres for medical staff, other emergency services workers and parents who have to go to work.
Family barbeques, house parties, church services and outside gatherings have all been banned under sweeping, unprecedented policies formulated at a federal Cabinet meeting Tuesday night.
Real estate auctions and open house inspections also will end.
There have been more than 343,000 global Covin 19 infections resulting in 14,000 deaths. Australia has recorded 8 deaths from 2136 confirmed cases so far.
The Liberal government supports four states closing their borders to all but essential services such as freight and vital jobs. Western Australia, South Australia and the Northern Territory have closed their borders and Queensland will be closed off on Thursday. Notably three are Labor states.
Air and train services are almost non-existent and interstate travel will be prevented by closed borders. The PM has mooted this new way of life could be in force for at least six months.
These dramatic policies come on the heels of an escalating death rate across the world allegedly caused by the Covin-19 virus which investigations show was developed in the UK, sent to Canada for invigorating as a bio-weapon then stolen by two Chinese scientists working at the Canadian lab and taken to Wuhan in China.
Wuhan is one of China’s first smart cities smothered exclusively by the 5G network.
The government has developed a ‘social distancing’ regime of 1.5 metres to prevent close contact between persons in public and private. How couples can perform in conjugal activities and adhere to social distancing have not yet been included in the massive crackdown.
Persons hoarding essential items such as food, baby milk or even scarce toilet paper then on-selling overseas will be prosecuted, the PM said.
The government expects nearly 1 million sacked workers, small business operators and others displaced by Covin-19 to apply for assistance from Centrelink.
Today Cairnsnews was told that Centrelink has advised emergency assistance applicants not to expect any financial assistance for at least three weeks. A young girl who was laid off from a private administrative position on Monday said she had $200 in the bank and could not survive for three weeks without financial help.
Queues at main Centrelink offices were up to 500 metres long today, some waiting for 6 or seven hours without managing to get an interview. The numbers became so large that police had to intervene at some locations.
Chief Medical Officer Dr Brendan Murphy speaking alongside the PM said it was imperative people observed social distancing to prevent the virus from spreading any further.
“We are going to have to change the way we interact as human beings for some time,” Dr Murphy stated.
“These measures are draconian.
“In life threatening circumstances we might have to take even stricter measures.”
Weak Albanese bends to the banks supports jail for those with more than $10,000
Scott Morrison PM gives the banks total control over the population
The Labor Party now owns the cash ban law. They have “Albowed” Morrison and the government aside to take charge of the law that, stripped to its essence, will jail Australians for not using banks.
Australians should call Albo and every Labor MP and Senator and demand to know why.
Labor MPs will scream till they are blue in the face that it’s not their law, it’s Morrison’s, but that’s a cop-out. Labor has the numbers to stop this bill, but instead they have fallen in behind the government to recommend in the final report of the Senate inquiry, released Friday, that Parliament pass the bill.
The most disappointing and dishonest part of Labor supporting the final report, and not issuing a dissenting report as the Greens did (an excellent job), is that it was Labor Senator Kimberley Kitching, who was on the Senate inquiry, who tweeted last Monday, 24 February:
“On the Senate committee looking at this, I was waiting for govt to provide evidence that their #cashban would actually impact current law-breakers (e.g. drug-dealers) rather than just inconvenience the elderly and people who don’t like banks. So far… nothing.”
So how on Earth can Kitching and Labor turn around and support the bill?!
The final report has eight recommendations, most of which are weak. For instance, they recommend reviewing the penalties for one-off as opposed to repeat offenders, but not the draconian jail sentences, which no other country with cash restrictions has. And they recommend moving the exemption for personal and private transactions, i.e. cash gifts to family members and buying a car from a friend, from the regulation, which is easy to change, into the bill, which is hard to change, but they don’t recommend doing the same for withdrawing money from the bank—this exemption is still in the regulation and remains easy for the Minister to drop, effectively trapping people in banks.
The overall problem with these recommendations is they don’t make the bill more effective in combatting the black economy; they are only intended to make the bill slightly more palatable to the Australian public. They can’t make the bill more effective because the government couldn’t provide evidence this law was necessary in the first place, as Labor Senators demonstrated, which is why it should have been rejected outright.
Will Labor insist on the recommendations, or cave?
There is, however, one recommendation that could potentially defeat this policy, but only if Labor insists on it! In the list of eight recommendations, the first is that “the government review existing powers and trends in the digital economy to assess whether the bill is the most effective response to the black economy”. In other words, the government should review whether this law is even necessary, and if it would work.
If implemented, this recommendation would significantly delay the cash ban bill, and possibly even end it altogether, because a genuine review would prove that the claims of KPMG’s Black Economy Taskforce, which recommended the cash ban, were dishonest. That report is a fraud: the late Michael Andrew who chaired the Taskforce—the only Australian to ever rise to global chair of a big four international accounting firm, KPMG, which is notorious for helping its clients in megabanks and multinational corporations evade tax and launder money to the tune of tens and hundreds of billions—had the supreme arrogance and gall to characterise the black economy as a blue-collar problem! His report pinned the blame for tax evasion in the black economy on the likes of tradies, hairdressers, nannies, personal trainers and gardeners, while absolving his former multinational business and its corporate clients. Worse, this report shows that Labor, supposedly the party of blue-collar workers, swallowed it.
It would be shocking to most Australians that this Senate report is not binding on the government, even though it’s from the government’s own committee. And even though Labor politicians signed off on the final report too, the Labor Party is also not bound by it. It is entirely possible for the government to reject the recommendations in the report, and for Labor to cave and support the bill anyway.
The question is: will Labor at least insist on the recommendations, or will they cave, and be responsible for a law that jails Australians for not using banks?
Call Parliament and demand answers
It is crucial that we keep the heat on politicians over this report, and this week flood politicians in Canberra with calls demanding they account for this report. All politicians are in Parliament this week, so the calls people make will be amplified. Here is who must be called:
- Assistant Treasurer Michael Sukkar, who is the Minister responsible for this law. Demand to know what the government’s response to the committee report will be, and whether it will accept all the recommendations. Ph: (02) 6277 7230 Email: Minister.Sukkar@treasury.gov.au
- Labor leader Anthony Albanese. Demand to know:
- Why is it Labor’s policy to jail Australians for not using banks?
- Why is Labor supporting this law even though their own Senators proved there’s no evidence for it?
- Will Labor even insist on all the recommendations, or will it cave and pass it anyway? Ph: (02) 6277 4022 Email: Anthony.Albanese.MP@aph.gov.au
- All Labor Senators and MPs. Ask them the same questions as Albanese, about Labor’s cash ban law to jail Australians for not using banks. Click here for a list of all Senators; click here to search for your MP on Parliament’s website.

Scomo most subservient to banks and big brother by pushing cash ban
Bob Katter, MHR said ‘big brother’ was getting more and more powerful after a Senate inquiry recommended a Bill banning cash payments over $10,000.
“This would be absolutely disastrous for the senate to pass this at a time when people are trying desperately to get their money out of the banks and financial institutions,” said Mr Katter.
“If this passes and you want to get your money out of the banks you simply won’t be able to.”
Mr Katter said the Bill would have dire implications for small businesses during natural disasters when people are unable to use Eftpos due to power and internet outages.
“If you are running even a very small business, $10,000 a week is not an unreasonable figure. During Cyclone Larry Eftpos was down for more than a week,” Mr Katter said.
“It is extraordinary that the Government would consider such an intrusion and destruction of basic human rights and privacy.
“The Parliament has sold the entire nation off to foreign corporations, they’ve bankrupted agriculture and now this is the next step.
“In China there is one CCTV camera for every three people and they are now incorporating facial recognition. In Australia the only people who have guns are the people in uniforms.
“In the famous novels A Brave New World and 1984 they had two way cameras in every household. Well, now we aren’t too far off from that.”
Queensland Katter MP, Nick Dametto said the limit on cash payments would be another assault on Australians’ freedom to be able to conduct legitimate business in a manner of their own choosing.
“This has been sold to us as a way for the Federal Government to control tax evasion but in reality all it does is give way to more control from the major banking corporations,” said the Member for Hinchinbrook.
“Australian currency is owned by the people, not the banks, and it should not be up to the Federal Government to decide how you spend it.”
