Back to school

Back to corporate slave programming.


Australia's schooling system is totally useless for anything else except churning out the next generation of non argumentative, brainwashed corporate slaves / 'consumers', addicted to their devices in a vegetative state.

Parenting IS 'hard yakka' where the majority of the parents from the herd population will do nothing to undo the 'damage' the system has done to their son / daughter.

It's up to YOU (the parent) to change that.

In today's day and age of information being literally at your fingertips ignorance is no excuse.

Although this video is I.T. centric it concerns everyone who is part of society.

The primary enemy of a government is their own people

In the words of Noam Chomsky:


Australia is Alcatraz v2, where democracy and freedom are a state of mind.

Every newly enacted law will take away what little rights you have left.

Canberra's accidental Top Secret document release exposes incompetence of the AFP

The boffins in Canberra are calling the accidental sale of classified document cupboards a "security breach" which it is not but rather a failure of procedure which are totally two different scenarios.


In these documents another failure of government is exposed, in that the people within the Australian Federal Police (AFP) "lost" nearly 400 national security files between 2008 - 2013.

How can the public trust the AFP with sensitive information?

This "Top Secret" label and as a result lack of action on the AFP is a cover up of government incompetence.

There should be an inquiry to the incompetence of the AFP, and people to be sacked.

Do you STILL trust the people in government with their 'honest' actions, and (deliberate lack of) transparency?

WARNING: Another Bill of Rights for Australia?

The good people of Australia should be aware that the people in government have been 'misbehaving' well before 1865, where as a result in that year the Imperial government installed the Colonial Laws Validity Act.

People should also be aware that the laws of England are valid on this land, which also includes the Bill of Rights 1689, Habeas Corpus Act 1679, Free Access to Courts Act 1400.

The people in government have been enacting laws without the lawful authority to do so for quite some time (the abolition of Queensland's upper house in 1922).

Something that the mainstream media has not reported on is that;
Currently what is sitting on the table of the "Parliament of Australia" is pieces of paper under the label "Australian Bill of Rights Bill 2017".


Very, very briefly;

- People should also be aware that for any laws to be lawful (among other "checks and balances") they must be passed by the parliament of the Commonwealth of Australia, where the proposed laws are to be checked against the 'Constitution' (or rather the Commonwealth of Australia Constitution Act 1900 (UK)).

  • Is this new law a lawfully enacted law?

  • Are the Australian people being segregated by this proposed Bill?

  • Are the Australian people losing more of their rights with the newly proposed law?

As of this writing the State Law Publisher of Western Australia has removed the link to the (UK) Bill of Rights.

Shutting the door down to anonymous travel?


When it comes to anonymity, you can say cash is king.

This does not fare well with the administration of the colony called Australia.

While one can argue that the ever growing presence of cameras can take your mugshot, there is no linkablity to your 'person's' name.

Currently you can purchase a myki card for cash, not register it and be able to use it for traveling on Melbourne's corporatised train network.


The administration wants to stamp out cash where as a result all the slaves moves are logged and stored forever.

The excuses vary from illegal criminal activity to ease of use for the consumer.

The people in government recently stated that the price of cigarettes was increased in order to deter  people from smoking, something that has factually not occurred.

The people in government do not give a stuff about how easy anything is for the 'consumer', but rather what is of benefit to the people pulling the strings and their corporate brethren.

There will be plenty of people from the slave pool that will be ambassadors for cashless transactions. 

The people in government lie (i.e. deliberately provide false information) to the tax slave population in order to further their own / corporate agendas at the expense of the general population.

We recommend the use of cash in as many transactions as possible, and do not recommend keeping any significant amount of cash in the bank.

Telstra fixes tower issue after three years

The bane of Australian communications is Telstra.

They deliberately limit people connecting to the internet via other service providers.

A country whose internet speed rating is falling every year and embarrassingly slower than other third wold countries.

Here is an example of Telstra's (deliberate) incompetence, as described by adelaidenow.com.au

Faulty Adelaide Hills phone tower fixed three years after issue



A FAULTY phone tower that left Hills residents without service during power outages has been fixed by Telstra three years after the issue first arose.
As reported by The Advertiser on January 12, residents feared lives were being put at risk because Telstra’s Inglewood phone tower would fail whenever power was cut, leaving them unable to call for help during emergencies.

It was believed a faulty back-up battery was to blame for the problem.

Locals said outages, caused by either planned maintenance, storm damage, accidents or fallen trees, would plunge Inglewood as well as parts of Houghton and Paracombe into a telecommunications blackout.

They said a lack of phone services during power outages had been an issue since the Sampson Flat bushfires in January 2015 but complaints to the telco had fallen on deaf ears.

Following queries from The Advertiser earlier this month, Telstra said it would replace the back-up battery system at the Inglewood tower.

On Tuesday, the company installed the new batteries at the tower.


“In the event of any short term power outages, the upgraded battery supply will enable mobile phone services for local residents to continue for several hours until the electricity supply is restored,” Telstra spokesman Mark Bolton said.

“Improving battery life capacity will extend mobile coverage and communications for local residents when the power supply is cut.

“However, in disaster situations such as bushfires it will not guarantee continuous mobile coverage due to the potential for damage to other transmitting infrastructure required to connect the base station to the broader Telstra network.”

Inglewood Inn manager Milly Howell, 27, said it was “great” action had finally been taken to rectify the issue.

“It’s going to be a huge weight off our shoulders next time we get a blackout,” she said.
“It is definitely a relief and I know a lot of people in the community will be really happy.”

However, fellow Inglewood resident Kerrilyn-Jodie Bridges, 48, was concerned the new batteries would not have the capacity to outlast power outages in the area.

“I’m glad it’s (been) done – We will have that four hours (of phone service) but after that we’ll still be stuffed but it’s the same everywhere,” she said.

Most people in the area used Telstra because it generally offered the best reception in the area.

Australia the Prison Island for Whistleblowers and Journalists




Soon after the marriage equality bill passed through the lower house on December 7, prime minister Malcolm Turnbull introduced a piece of legislation ostensibly aimed at countering espionage, treason and foreign interference. But in reality, the laws have frightening implications for those who divulge official secrets.

The National Security Legislation Amendment (Espionage and Foreign Interference) Bill 2017 creates a series of draconian laws that aim not only to penalise Commonwealth officers that leak classified information, but also criminalises all the steps that go into reporting such information to the public.

Commonwealth officers are classed as current or former public servants, members of the defence force or the Australian federal police, an employee working for a company providing services to the federal government, or a contractor.

However, the proposed offences apply to everyone. And they would impose maximum penalties of up to 15 years imprisonment for communicating government information, or five years behind bars for merely dealing with it. And an aggravated offence can result in up to 20 years prison time.

If passed, the bill would insert the new secrecy offences into the Criminal Code, under the newly created part 5.6 and division 121. These provisions replace the wartime offences that currently relate to official secrets contained in the Crimes Act 1914.

“Absurdly broad”
Bill Rowlings, chief executive of Civil Liberties Australia, explained that the new laws don’t just go after the leakers, like Chelsea Manning and Edward Snowden, but, they apply to anyone who has “dealings” with classified material, “including publishers, newspapers and journalists.”

“Wikileaks would become a criminal organisation under the law,” Mr Rowlings explained. And “so too, could Sydney Criminal Lawyers should you happen to report on something that was classified.”
Mr Rowlings noted that information doesn’t have to be classed as “secret,” or “cabinet in confidence,” but it merely has to be “classified.”

And given that many public servants have what could be described as a “pro-classification approach,” Rowlings said the laws could lead to absurd situations where an individual might be facing prison time for leaking a “internal staff manual” marked “for official use only.”

Wartime measures
The Parliamentary Joint Committee on Intelligence and Security is currently inquiring into the Espionage and Foreign Interference Bill. And its set to report back to the government by next month.
The Media, Entertainment and Arts Alliance’s (MEAA) submission to the inquiry outlines that the legislation significantly broadens the application of the law beyond current secrecy laws, and this could result in journalists, editorial staff, support staff, and even legal advisors, risking prison time.

The current laws regarding official secrets were drafted in 1914, after the outbreak of the First World War, by then attorney general Billy Hughes. The secrecy laws and harsh penalties were enacted due to fears over German espionage.

Severe penalties already apply
Section 70 of the Crimes Act makes it an offence for a former or current Commonwealth officer to publish or communicate any government information without authorisation to do so. The maximum penalty for this offence is 2 years imprisonment.

Section 79 of the Act outlines a range of crimes regarding official secrets that relate to any person. It lists a range of documents and items that can constitute as a prescribed official secret if it has been provided by an official.

Subsection 79(3) makes it a crime for any individual to communicate an official secret, or to permit another to have access to it. This carries a penalty of up to 2 years imprisonment. And an individual who knowingly receives a secret under these circumstances can also be sent to gaol for 2 years.

Subsection 79(2) makes it an offence for a person to communicate or retain an official secret, or to fail to comply with an official direction regarding one, while this is done with the intention of prejudicing Australia’s security. This crime carries a maximum penalty of up to 7 years behind bars.
Subsection 79(5) provides that if any individual knowingly receives an official secret under circumstances that prejudice national security, then they’re also subject to a sentence of up to 7 years behind bars.

The PM’s steep new penalties
The attorney general’s office states that the new secrecy offences need to be brought in, as the current ones “are outdated, ineffective and lack appropriately serious penalties.”

The new legislation would create the offence of communicating inherently harmful information. This includes information that could damage national security or defence, is classified information, or information obtained by a domestic or foreign intelligence agency.

The maximum penalty for divulging this sort of information is 15 years imprisonment. And if an individual has other dealings with such information, removes it from its proper place of custody, or fails to comply with an official direction regarding it, then they can be imprisoned for up to 5 years.
Another new offence, communicating official information that causes harm to Australia’s interest, can result in 15 years gaol time. And having other dealings, removing, or failing to comply with an official direction, in regard to such information, can see an individual sent away for 5 years.

And the legislation contains a number of aggravating factors that can increase the maximum penalties by up to 5 years.

These include situations where information is classified as “secret” or marked with the phrase “for Australian eyes only,” an offence dealing with five or more records, altering classified information, or in cases where an offender is the holder of an Australian government security clearance.

A shelved review
As Mr Rowlings pointed out, a review of the existing official secrecy laws was commissioned by the Rudd government back in 2008. The Australian Law Reform Commission’s (ALRC) Secrecy Laws and Open Government in Australia report was released the following year.

The ALRC recommended that the existing laws in the Crimes Act be repealed, as it found them excessive. And these provisions should be replaced with a new general secrecy offence, which would directly protect information that legitimately needs to be concealed.

It also suggested that regulation 2.1 of the Public Service Regulation 1999 should specify that a Commonwealth officer must not disclose information if it is “reasonably likely” to be “prejudicial to the effective working of government,” rather than the current specification of “could be prejudicial.”

Toeing the party line
According to Rowlings, the Turnbull government’s further crackdown on whistleblowers is just more of the same from the Coalition.

The civil libertarian pointed to the Abbott government’s introduction of the Australian Border Force Act 2015, which initially “criminalised the reporting of abuses on Manus and Nauru by doctors and service providers.”

And Mr Rowlings further outlined that since 9/11, both sides of government have introduced a total of 65 pieces of counterterrorism legislation that have gradually eroded Australians’ civil liberties. These have placed restrictions on freedom of speech, and implemented mandatory mass surveillance.

When defence is no defence at all
The current secrecy laws provide no defences. However, Turnbull’s legislation does. These include circumstances where information was divulged in the interest of the public, or in the case of a journalist, when information was dealt with or held for the purposes of fair and accurate reporting.

In its submission, the MEAA points out that the defence for “fair and accurate reporting” doesn’t actually cover a situation where the information has been communicated. And it also draws attention to what constitutes “in the interest of the public” in the bill’s explanatory memorandum.

In particular, the MEAA said it was vexed by the following passage: “the extension for the defence to a person who holds information is intended to enable journalists to perform the important function of ‘filtering’ stories that are contrary to public interest.”

Indeed, it seems that a journalist should be aware of what information the government takes an affront to, prior to ending up in the courtroom.

Each little freedom adds up
So, it seems the Coalition is continuing to place further restrictions on transparency, similar to the initial gag provisions contained in the Border Force Act, or last year’s Migration Act amendment, which further strengthened secrecy around intelligence agency and law enforcement information.

And unfortunately, when it comes to federal Labor – unlike its refusal to pass laws implementing welfare drug testing, or to agree to conservative amendments to the marriage equality act – when it comes to national security measures, the opposition just waves them through.

BlackBerry not so secure, should face court action - backdoors your emails


BlackBerry a (previous) phone manufacturer together it's own proprietary 'device' operating system is apparently renowned for its well advertised secure product, that being the phone's operating system mated to its corporate email solution.

The phone manufacturer literally gave phones away to government businesses where its cash cow was the email backbone to its servers.

Word spread very quickly of its apparent secure communications, that the general population were using the phone as well.

Well it seems that not only was the general population deceived, so were all those who thought they were exclusively logging into their 'private' email servers.

It seems that you were not logging into your server, but also re-routed through to GCHQ.

See attached screen capture of the details;


The 'problem' with a closed system, many lay person does not have the resources to find out who their phone traffic goes to.

This does not only apply to BlackBerry, but also to operating system manufacturers like Apple and Microsoft together with a plethora of app developers.

We do not recommend logging into any site from your mobile phone.

Do not think that BlackBerry's Android phones are secure or private.

It looks like you've been screwed over by John Chen.


Slave mentality bowing to an actor

So who is the woman in black, the woman in red bowing to?

She is an American 'actor' by the name Meghan Markle.

She has no other 'title' other than 'Ms.' Markle.


It looks like you deserve the slavery you requested.

Accept Failure of Government as YOUR new reality?


So people should be aware that the speaker of the house (Bronwyn Bishop) in 2015 stated that
"the first job of a government is to look after the safety of its people."

Now the term people may refer to the people of the government, or the slave population for the people in government, something that is left (deliberately) ambiguous.

In any event let's refer to the people as the masses.

The people in government have imported in record numbers savages from other countries into the state of Victoria, into Melbourne to be more specific, where the effects being that a high crime rate has hit the good people of Melbourne.

The people in government are not feeling the effects of their actions.

They are not feeling the effects of their homes being broken into, or their wives being bashed, or their children's automobiles being car-jacked.

They are literally immune from the effects they've imposed on society.

They have FAILED to keep the 'people' safe.

IT seems that the 'administration' has gone back to their policies of 1788, where they import criminal scum to f_ck over the good inhabitants of this land.

Do you accept being terrorised by criminals the people in government imported into this country?
