    I would imagine that the Premier of Victoria’s refusal to answer a legitimate question concerning this man’s methods of ‘leadership’, is evidence alone of his subversive character.

    Here's Australia, which we can admit is not the USA or UK (yet):



    This epauletted tyrant boasts about smashing windows and pulling people out (presumably across the shattered glass?) so that Patrols can demand to see their papers.

    He said he was following the orders of, not a specific law exactly, but the dictates of some Health Commissar.

    Governments the world over have arrogated themselves powers they have no right to. They are not slowing their power grabs.

    They have treated this bug as if it was unprecedented and unique in its destructive power, which is false. Not just false, but demonstrably false.

    Also, we have seen more than enough evidence that government "helpers" have made things worse, and may have contributed to, and even caused, deaths.

    Not that this would bother these people one iota. They just want you to understand that you must follow orders and put on the mask, even if your own home. It’s for your own good. So what if there is no evidence of efficacy, and much evidence against it? Do what you’re told.

    Regrettably a large contingent of humourless unthinking drones do. The fear and glare in the eyes of the masked as the unmasked approaches them is real. Many WAY too many are sure they’re going to get sick unless you and I wear a mask. And that if they get sick, they will likely die.

    They could have merely recommended masks. Most would have worn them, for the fear of many is strong. But Australian governors made it a brand new crime not to wear one, just as it was a crime in many locales to go outside more than once a day during the lockdowns. You are now a criminal for not surrendering to irrational fear. Many Australian agreed, most of them, to these new lasting restrictions.

    We have moved rather quickly into a dystopian world of sanctioned media lies, social manipulation and authoritarian overreach. This was done with clear knowledge of how to create the psychological state necessary to render most people frightened and seemingly incapable of resistance. There is a reason these few have ruled the many for thousands of years.

    Here in America we get endless media drivel on Kamala Harris, while Australia descends into an Orwellian nightmare.

    There is a war on our consciousness.

    The evil that is here has not rested for one day. They want to drag us down their timeline.

    The psychopaths that run our countries answer only to the dark forces.

    What this all means is that the insane elite don't care about our rights at all. The elite don't care about what is legal and what isn't. They made it all up and they control it!

    They have overridden the Nurenberg code, the Magna Carta and the Constitutional rights of the people and they have already broken all the laws and covenants around our natural rights for literally forever.

    What makes anyone think that an enquiry or a petition is going to make a dent in their plans?

    It's got to get beyond petitioning and protesting for our rights; paperwork means literally nothing to these people.

    Despite everyone's best efforts to change or stop what is happening over the years, things are getting worse, not better.

    The agenda continues to roll on like a freight train. They are not going to stop. If you think like a psychopath does, why would they stop? They are winning the war on our hearts and minds. Psychopaths enjoy the suffering of people. They thrive on our suffering.

    As a close friend said to me this morning, "gone is the "totalitarian tiptoe" and in its place is a frantic, insane dash to the finish...
    I feel like it can be stopped, but if it isn't, whats currently happening will feel like a vacation."

    Robotics have advanced to the point of almost no return.

    Think skynet.

    It will be 'Artificial Intelligence meets totalitarianism on steriods' if we don't stop what we are doing right now and head in the opposite direction.

    And by that, I mean that we need to return to nature. Folks, it is our only chance for thriving.

    Those who are awake and aware need to share the crap out of what is currently happening so that the rest of the people can awaken to all of this and help each other to take action.

    And by action, I mean that we need to strike at the roots.

    And this is where we come into it folks.

    There is a saying, "a colony of ants can overpower a snake".

    We are so many, they are so few.

    We can create a new paradigm together. We just need to put our heads together. We need our brilliant creativity to shine and to collectively come together for the answers we need before it is too late.

    "Of the 42,199 residential mesh blocks currently under Stage Four restrictions, 3496 have between 0 and 4.5 square kilometres of parkland within five kilometres,” the experts wrote for The Conversation.

    This equates to about 135,000 homes or 340,000 people with little or no access to parks within their permitted area for exercising.”

    1. Recording covid-19 on the death certificate
    The new coronavirus strain (COVID-19) should be recorded on the medical cause of death certificate for ALL decedents where the disease caused, or is assumed to have caused, or contributed to death.


    There has been a huge grant offered to aged care facilities by our government to support those aged care facilities with patients who have COVID. There has been plenty of incentives here to have the deaths issued as COVID.

    Information about the COVID 19 aged care support program


    Troy Thornton (@troyjthornton) live on Instagram this evening with Hayley Vernon (@hayleyvernon) discussing his personal experience, which he has backed up by conversation recordings, of doctors trying to pressure his mother into listing his uncle's primary (not secondary, primary) cause of death as "C0V!D", despite the fact that he passed away from heart failure due to terminal lung cancer.

    I've sometime ago placed as many of the available Bilderberg meeting notes in the library so these comments attributed to Kissinger (above) ought to be easily verifiable, here

    Yeh absolutely. It's right up there with,

    beating each other up
    keeps the peace

    Ten years ago I would never have believed in my wildest dreams that any of this crap would fly, not in this modern day and age. Boy was I wrong.

    These contradictory slogans are a perfect example of doublethink. The first one they sold us, and people totally bought, was 'diversity is strength'. But it isn't, not really, not when you break it down (which I tried to do here). Unity is strength, actually. By emphasizing diverseness you artificially create it, and this then dissolves any bonds of unity that were there before. It's self-defeating.

    It's worth copying out here Orwell's definition of doublethink:

    The power of holding two contradictory beliefs in one's mind simultaneously, and accepting both of them... To tell deliberate lies while genuinely believing in them, to forget any fact that has become inconvenient, and then, when it becomes necessary again, to draw it back from oblivion for just as long as it is needed, to deny the existence of objective reality and all the while to take account of the reality which one denies—all this is indispensably necessary. Even in using the word doublethink it is necessary to exercise doublethink. For by using the word one admits that one is tampering with reality; by a fresh act of doublethink one erases this knowledge; and so on indefinitely, with the lie always one leap ahead of the truth.

    I've sometime ago placed as many of the available Bilderberg meeting notes in the library so these comments attributed to Kissinger (above) ought to be easily verifiable, here

    Cheers Tintin. I couldn't see it in there, but it's quite likely this document only contains what was officially transcribed. I have a doubt that every word spoken at this and other Bilderberg events is completely and officially transcribed. There may well be one transcription for open distribution, another for private use. No one can prove anything of course. But this Kissinger quote is attributed to a recording made by one of the Swiss delegates. We don't have that recording and I've never heard it, and maybe this quote is just an urban myth...

    However, theoretically - and spitballing here - I see a small detail that might lend it some further validity. He places his hypothetical military incursion in the city of Los Angeles. Why Los Angeles? Exactly three weeks before this alleged speech in May 1992, the police officers accused of murdering Rodney King were acquitted. Los Angeles then suffered the worst civil disturbance since the Watts riots about 30 years prior iirc. Scanning the rest of those notes, LA is mentioned a number of times in relation to those riots, so with that indeed being officially on the agenda, Kissinger's comment, while not proven, is both logical and credible.

    Now your neighbor, New Zealand, perhaps emboldened by Australia's success, is moving to its own draconian measures where people who have "tested" positive will be sent to a camp where their every activity will be monitored. Winston Smith would be right at home tho' he probably wouldn't be much happier.




    New Zealand To Put COVID-19 Patients Into Mandatory Quarantine Camps

    August 14, 2020

    In a move right out of George Orwell’s 1984, New Zealand has announced it would put all COVID-19 patients into mandatory quarantine camps. The Prime Minister of New Zealand has said that your each and every activity will be monitored in these camps and those that refuse to be tested would be forced to stay in the camps for a longer duration.

    New Zealand’s Director-General of Health Dr Ashley Bloomfield announced at a press conference that the use of quarantine facilities marks a major departure from how positive cases were managed by health officials when New Zealand was last at level 3, as cases earlier in the year were told to simply self-isolate in their homes.

    Dr Bloomfield says the mandatory quarantine will apply to both new cases and, if necessary, close family members who might be at risk.

    “[It] shows how serious we are about limiting any risk of ongoing transmission – even in self-isolation and including to others in the household,” he added.

    Quote “A reminder, these facilities have been set up specifically and have excellent processes and resources in place to look after people with COVID-19, including health staff on site at all times.

    “It will help us avoid any further inadvertent spread into the community as part of our overall response.”
    The announcement didn’t say much about how the quarantine would be. However, New Zealand’s Prime Minister Jacinda Ardern in a Facebook live video explained in detail how each and every activity will be monitored in these camps and those that refuse to be tested would be forced to stay in the camps for a longer duration.

    Quote We are quarantining everyone. Now we are also mandating testing. That makes us the most stringent in the world. There are countries that are requiring self-isolation; we’re taking it a bit further.

    If anyone moves into a common area or is getting some fresh air, which is all monitored no one can do that on their own. They can only leave or be in a space to get a little bit of fresh air if they are supervised, because of course it’s a quarantine facility.

    We have put in millions of dollars into supporting that to happen.

    I have a number of questions about people refusing – what do we do if someone refuses to be tested. Well they can’t now. If someone refuses in our facilities to be tested, they have to keep staying. So they won’t be allowed to leave after 14 days. They have to stay on for another 14 days.

    So, it’s a pretty good incentive. You either get your tests done and make sure you’re cleared or we will keep you in a facility longer. So I think most people will look at it and say I will take the test.
    Interestingly, earlier New Zealand’s deputy opposition leader accused the government of stage-managing the outbreak over a week.



    The announcement come days after Canada’s Chief Medical Officer of Health Dr. Barbara Yaffe exposed the uselessness of mandatory mass coronavirus testing warning that it takes resources away from more essential fields and does not “actually achieve anything.”

    This is more promising.





    Of course the media are spinning it their way:

    Shoppers crowd on busy Melbourne strip on Saturday morning

    Pictures of a bustling shopping strip in Melbourne, taken this morning, have sparked fears that some Victorians believe the pandemic is already over.

    You would be forgiven for thinking there were no stage four restrictions in some parts of Melbourne where people have gathered at busy shopping strips.

    Authorities have begged people to stay inside today, as sunny weather hits the Victorian capital.

    However, one reporter at Oakleigh in the city’s southwest took pictures showing a bustling pedestrian zone outside a shopping centre this morning.

    The images appear to show a lack of social distancing and a group of elderly residents sat together on the strip.

    Some Victorians have taken to social media, saying they’re worried today’s good weather and the state’s dropping case numbers will result in Melburnians believing the pandemic is over.
