IS AUSTRALIA HEADED FOR ECONOMIC ARMAGEDDON?

Remember in 2020 when EXPERTS told us that, contrary to what we were all taught in the past, mountains of government debt was actually a good thing?

It was called Modern Monetary Theory (MMT) and it all hung together beautifully in the models.

Well you don’t hear much about MMT anymore.

Not since inflation started skyrocketing and central banks began hiking their interest rates.

This month, Australia’s RBA raised interest rates to 0.85% and Goldman Sachs says it could hit 2.6% by year’s end.

Which makes RBA’s actions incredibly reckless, in my book.

Property and household debt are pretty much the only thing still driving this country’s economy.

We generate no real wealth, create no productive jobs, while private investment and wage growth have been stagnant for decades.

Where is the national productivity agenda?  There is none.

Australia is now a ‘service’ economy – ‘services’ and the longest running property bubble in history!

In 2020, the Treasurer said gross government debt would be $1.1 trillion by June 2024.

According to Treasury’s models, the total interest payable on all that debt was predicted to be $113 billion by June 2025, or close to $20 billion each year.

There’s just one tiny problem.

The  models were calculated on the ‘assumption’ that there would be A STEADILY FALLING INTEREST RATE ACROSS THAT PERIOD!

Which as everyone knows, didn’t happen. Instead of falling, interest rates have tripled.

So instead of having to pay around $20 billion in interest each year, the federal government could be looking at $60 billion.

And despite what MMT theorists believe, governments absolutely MUST pay their annual debt interest payments – or the whole house of cards collapses.

Imagine if interest rates do hit that 2.6% Goldman Sachs has predicted.  We could be looking at an annual interest bill ten times the amount predicted in 2020.

Even at $60 billion, Australia’s interest bill would be the Government’s third largest expenditure item behind health and aged income support, according to the IPA.

And remember! Australia’s Big Four Banks are 60-70% exposed to the property sector.  Even a moderate run of defaults could finish them.

And here’s the kicker.

Under the Financial Claims Scheme Guarantee, deposits of $1 million or below with Australian-owned banks, building societies, credit unions and even Australian subsidiaries of foreign-owned banks are automatically guaranteed by the Federal Government!

That means if the property market collapses and some or all of the banks crash, guess who’s on the hook to bail them out?  The Federal Government.

It would bankrupt the country.

Let’s hope the RBA knows what its doing!

THE BOMBSHELL EVERYBODY MISSED!

During the recent Senate Estimates hearings in April, an extremely revealing exchange took place between Senator Gerard Rennick and Prof. Paul Kelly.

It offered a rare glimpse of the hidden rationale behind some of the draconian measures adopted by our Government over the past two years.

It also showed the extraordinary inroads Treaties like the International Health Regulations have already made on Australian sovereignty.

Senator Rennick asked:

“Why are we stopping unvaccinated people from travelling overseas? I cannot for the life of me see the health risks in an unvaccinated person leaving the country? …Why do we have to restrict people from travelling freely outside of Australia if they’re unvaccinated? I would have thought it would reduce the risk, given there would be fewer people in the country?”

To which Kelly admitted:

“ACTUALLY, IT IS, BECAUSE WE ARE SIGNED UP TO A TREATY CALLED THE INTERNATIONAL HEALTH REGULATIONS, AND THERE IS A SPECIFIC COMPONENT OF THE BIOSECURITY ACT WHICH ADDRESSES THAT MATTER ABOUT PROTECTION FOR OTHERS.”

Rennick’s retort was priceless:

“SO IT’S NOT HEALTH ADVICE; IT’S BECAUSE WE SIGNED UP TO A TREATY!”

Boom!

Senator Antic got a similar response when he asked on 6 April:

“I understand that, if you’re an Australian citizen… you can’t leave Australia unless you’re fully vaccinated and yet foreign citizens are able to leave at any time. What is the rationale behind this? What is the science behind this? Is this not more the sort of thing that we’d see in communist North Korea—stopping citizens leaving their country?”

Kelly replied:

“The advice in relation to people exiting Australia, was in relation to our obligations under the International Health Regulations for protecting other countries.”

Australia’s Biosecurity Act 2014 is littered with references to the IHRs and Australia’s “obligation” to legislate the regulations “into effect”.

Part 2, Clauses 44-45 cover ‘Exit Requirements’ which the Explanatory Memorandum say are primarily for:

“ENSURING AUSTRALIA’S INTERNATIONAL OBLIGATIONS UNDER ANNEX 1B OF THE INTERNATIONAL HEALTH REGULATIONS ARE MET.”

Sub-clause 45(2) states “determinations” are laws, but cannot be “disallowed” by Parliament and are therefore not subject to parliamentary scrutiny.

During the 2015 debate on the Bill, there was no mention of the IHRs or ‘Human Health’ provisions, apart from a brief mention by the introducing Minister, Barnaby Joyce, who said:

“IT IS EXPECTED THAT THE HUMAN HEALTH PROVISIONS CONTAINED IN THIS BILL WILL BE SELDOM USED”.

Only Senator Nick Xenophon understood the danger.

He moved a motion that:

“..DETERMINATIONS BE MADE SUBJECT TO DISALLOWANCE AND PARLIAMENTARY SCRUTINY”.

A day earlier, he said:

“I remember the strong advocacy by former Senator Boswell, …he was absolutely right. WE ARE MUGS INTERNATIONALLY AND WE ARE SCHMUCKS INTERNATIONALLY… BECAUSE WE DO NOT PROTECT OUR NATIONAL INTEREST”.

“At the very least”, he said, a “risk analysis” should be tabled in both houses, and referred to a committee.

“We have to be extremely vigilant about this” he warned.

“Do not leave it to the bureaucrats”.

“THAT WOULD BE A VERY DANGEROUS PATH TO GO DOWN.”

His words all fell on deaf ears, however, and the Bill passed with bipartisan support.

All of which begs the question – how many other laws are being passed simply to ‘put into effect’ the dozens of secret international treaties and agreements our reckless governments are signing each year?

…..

Sign the Petition to ensure this never happens again: 

PANDEMIC TREATY AND AMENDMENTS TO THE INTERNATIONAL HEALTH REGULATIONS

ROYAL COMMISSION NEEDED ON AUSTRALIA’S SECRETIVE AND UNACCOUNTABLE TREATY-SIGNING PROCESS

 

The above IHR amendment would have given away Australia’s sovereign decision-making powers for declaring and managing ‘Public Health Emergencies” to a foreign entity, the World Health Organization.

It still might, given we have only been granted a reprieve, NOT a pardon, from these appalling amendments.

Once we have all breathed a collective sigh of relief, however, important questions need to be asked to ensure this never happens again.

How exactly did it happen that not a single member of Government OR Parliament, thought to notify the Australian People that such a dangerous and treacherous step was being considered by Canberra?

At no point, as far as I am aware, did anyone in authority, alert the Australian public of the existence of these Biden amendments or their implications for our national sovereignty.

The only reason the public here became aware of the Amendments was when an independent US researcher came across them by chance in April and posted them online.

Without that, the Australian people would have had no idea their Government intended on signing away their sovereignty, without any recourse to the ‘Will of the People’.

Australia has one of the most secretive and unaccountable treaty-signing systems in the world.

It’s practice of tabling treaties in batches in Parliament, AFTER they have already been signed, is a joke.

In 1996, the British Minister for Overseas Development, compared the Australian practice to the ‘Ponsonby rule’, which requires treaties in the UK to be tabled at least 21 sitting days prior to signing.

She told Parliament:

“Your lordships would be right and, indeed, would have every reason to complain had we followed such a practice of tabling treaties in bulk. We have not done that. If our Australian friends had used something like the Ponsonby Rule on treaties effectively one by one, THEY WOULD NOT BE IN THE SITUATION IN WHICH THEY NOW FIND THEMSELVES.  We are very different from the Australian Government in this.  We are committed to a policy of open government.”

Australia’s practice of treaty signing has eroded our sovereignty and democracy, in ways most of us are still not fully aware of.

It is also why there is so much confusion amongst Australians as to why so many impenetrable laws are being rammed through our State and Federal Parliaments, without being either asked for or needed by the Australian people.

That’s why we need a full Royal Commission into Australia’s Treaty signing process, to get to the bottom of all this.

PANDEMIC TREATY AND AMENDMENTS TO THE INTERNATIONAL HEALTH REGULATIONS

 

AUSTRALIA FALLS TO A BUNCH OF VIRTUE-SIGNALLING ELITES AND THEIR MASTERS

Saturday’s count saw massive swings to far-left green candidates in leafy inner-city areas, where privileged ‘elites’ now hold profoundly radical views on everything from climate change to ‘gender equity’.

And for all the rhetoric around conservatives and their so-called ‘racist’ agenda, it was One Nation who ran a far more diverse range of candidates across every measure of race, class and life experience, than all the pseudo left parties combined.

But that’s not something you’ll hear about from the mainstream media.

No.  They’re all too busy proclaiming a mandate on radical climate action and wokedom to notice how riddled with inconsistency and hypocrisy their side has become.

Amanda McKenzie, CEO of the Climate Council, led the way calling for a “RADICAL RESET” on climate action.

Others quickly followed, including Adam Bandt, Penny Wong and Albanese, who told Australians he would be adopting much more radical emissions targets now.

“We have an opportunity to end the climate wars in Australia” Albanese told the BBC, who smugly noted “he has a mandate now”.

If ordinary Australians needed a reminder about just how much contempt the country’s elite, inner-city green ideologues feel about their struggles, then Saturday’s election coverage just handed it to them in spades.

There really are two Australias now and the political fault lines dividing the two were set in stone by this election.

The Australia that won the count on Saturday is one I barely know, or care to know.

It is a leafy place of wealth and privilege, where all the residents have cushy jobs and a string of letters after their name; not to mention a whining sense of entitlement Prince Charles would blush at.

And yet, when you boil everything down, Australia has a new government that nearly 70% of the country didn’t vote for.

That’s astonishing.

Labor won with the lowest primary vote ever recorded in our history.

The party also saw significant swings against them from its own traditional support base – blue-collar workers.

Areas with lower incomes and lower levels of education, are now much more likely to vote conservative than Labor – even people on welfare have shifted.

Waleed Aly commented on this historic shift, saying voters in wealthy electorates shifted left, while people in less wealthy seats moved right.

In the end, it was the hard swings in a few key bastions of inner-city privilege that proved decisive.

Sadly, the weekend’s losers are all those in the suburbs,  households, small business and regions.

The people Menzies once famously described as Australia’s ‘forgotten people’.

Only this time, there’s no Menzies coming to save them.

THERE NEEDS TO BE A RECKONING …

In Shanghai right now, nearly 25 million humans have been put under house arrest.

Imprisoned in high-rise apartments, they can’t leave their homes for anything – even food or water.

‘Essentials’ are delivered to them by a nightmarish army of white-garbed, masked ‘health workers’.

The city’s streets and parks are no-go zones and medical-testing is mandatory.

Groups of people are frogmarched to testing sites where anyone testing positive is forcibly taken away and incarcerated in vast prison-like quarantine centres.

House arrest, invasive tests, detention, starvation rations and countless other human rights abuses are now the norm.

Once upon a time, this would have provoked outrage and condemnation from leaders of the ‘free world’.

Not anymore.

Governments everywhere, including Australia, are utterly silent in the face of this tyranny.

Something Australians should consider an ominous sign for their own future.

When, during this whole campaign, did we hear a single Minister or shadow Minister, make reference to what has gone on over the past two and a half years?

How many apologised for the part they played, or didn’t play, in that nightmare?

A nightmare that saw countless lives ruined, dreams smashed, businesses destroyed, relationships broken and jobs/careers stolen.

Not a single one.

Even today I find it hard to credit the sheer lunacy of it all.  And cruelty.

I received literally thousands of letters and emails over the past year, many from Australians who have been deeply traumatised by recent events.

Most heartbreaking are those who say how “sad” they feel all the time now.

As though all feeling of happiness or hope for the future has been drained out of them.

Many of these are young people.

By rights, our youth should be brimming with joy, looking forward to a future filled with brilliant career opportunities, overseas travels, new friends, activities and adventure before meeting someone, having children and everything else that goes with that.

That’s why I’m saying:

There needs to be some kind of reckoning for all this.

My hope is that tomorrow will be that reckoning …

……………………………………………………………………..

Please REMEMBER all those standing who fought tirelessly, and continue to fight, by the side of the PEOPLE and AGAINST TYRANNY.

ABOVE ALL

REMEMBER TO VOTE MAJORS LAST!

BOTH LEADERS SAY THEY SUPPORT HAND-OVER OF OUR SOVEREIGNTY TO WHO – BUT NEITHER THOUGHT TO LET AUSTRALIANS KNOW BEFORE NOW!

The WHO is making a power grab over Australian sovereignty this weekend in Geneva.

Australians were NEVER told that this was happening, until TODAY!

Both the Prime Minister and Opposition Leader were caught RED-HANDED today when  confronted by the media for the first time at separate press conferences.

Albanese looked like a deer in the headlights, mumbled something about being a big WHO supporter, then scuttled away.

Morrison, meanwhile, is made of sterner stuff, decided to bluff his way through, waxing lyrical on how the whole thing was just the most brilliant idea.

If it was so brilliant, PM, why did neither you or your Ministers think, even once, to alert the Australian people on what you were planning to do behind closed doors?

#SaveOurSovereignty

WORLD GOVERNMENTS WILL MEET IN GENEVA IN 5 DAYS AND SIGN AWAY THE SOVEREIGN RIGHTS OF THEIR PEOPLE

Turns out things are far worse than I realised.

The REAL POWER PLAY that will put national decision-making powers in the hands of WHO, is set to take place on 22 May 2022, when the world’s governments all sign off on the Biden Administration’s proposed Amendments to the International Health Regulations in Geneva.

The Amendments are described as “complementary”, but separate to the proposed Treaty.

Like the Treaty, however, they will be “legally binding and enforceable” under international law.

More alarming, however, is that they are the primary instrument through which national sovereignty is to be ceded to the WHO, and the globalist funders who pull its strings.

Funders that include the Chinese Government and billionaire entities like the Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation, Rockefeller Foundation and George Soros.

Michele Bachmann, Dean of the Robertson School of Government and a former U.S. Congresswoman, has rung the alarm bells in the US, saying it is: “the most dangerous power grab by an unaccountable organisation in history”.

Once the amendments are signed, she warns America, WHO technocrats will have the authority to intervene in the policies and laws of “any nation in the world without its permission.”

Chinese-style lockdowns (which WHO has NEVER criticised or condemned) could be mandated “for whatever pretext they want, they don’t have to show data, they could do this”, Bachmann said.

Why is there almost no public discussion or debate on this issue in Australia?

The amendments were presented to the World Health Organisation by Biden on 18 January 2022, but there is NOTHING about them from before mid April – and even that’s only in the alternative news outlets.

Biden has released a list of countries who he says have agreed to sign away the constitutional rights of their people.  AUSTRALIA is top of the list!

Was this the REAL reason world governments suddenly, and ‘in lockstep’, toned down their previously harsh rhetoric on the virus, and even lifted many of their restrictions and mandates?

Was it all just to lull people into a false sense of security?

Anyone who cares about this country and future generations, needs to drop everything right now and focus on this ONE issue.

We only have three working days to turn things around!

An unequivocal message needs to be sent to every member of our UNI-POLAR Government in Canberra, including the wolf-in-sheep’s clothing GREENS Party, that under NO circumstances are these Amendments to be signed before there has been a full public debate and, more importantly, A NATIONAL REFERENDUM.

More to come….

#STOPWHO

NONE DARE CALL IT TREASON …

Last month, while most people were distracted by rising inflation, food shortages and events in the Ukraine, the latest round of WHO’s hearings on the “Pandemic Treaty” took place in Geneva.

The next round of talks are due to start mid-June, with a working draft to be ready for “internal negotiations” by 1 August 2022.

The Treaty is expected to be ratified by 194 countries and become fully binding under international law by no later than May 2024.

To date, only ONE country has lodged a “rejection letter” with the WHO, and that’s Russia.

Any government that signs this Treaty, will have effectively signed away their country’s sovereignty, without the full knowledge or informed consent of its people.

The Treaty hands WHO supranational powers, including the right to decide what a pandemic is, declare a state of emergency on a nation’s behalf, and determine what measures should be taken in responding to it.

Bear in mind that, according to “experts”, a “pandemic” can have any number of meanings nowadays.  According to them, there can be pandemics of heart disease, obesity, cancer and even poverty.

Draft clauses grant WHO a vast array of compliance powers, including harsh financial sanctions, enforced by the UN and a newly created body housed within the World Bank called the Global Health Security Financial Intermediary Fund.

The drafters will also be mandating huge increases in ‘COMPULSORY’ financing of WHO, which member states can raise by imposing new public health taxes on their citizens.

Other clauses allow WHO to put a country under a ‘state of emergency’ PREVENTATIVELY, for which the dreaded ‘precautionary principle’ is being trotted out.

Like ‘pre-crime’ for pandemics.

It will mean an emergency can be declared, and lockdowns imposed, in countries where not a single case has been identified.

The Treaty puts unparalleled powers into the hands of a few unelected foreign bureaucrats, allowing them to make “unaccountable” decisions which override the decisions of a country’s national, state and local governments.

Here’s what that looks like – say our parliament passed a law banning mandatory vaccination – the Treaty gives WHO technocrats the power to overrule the law and force the jab on Australians anyway.

All of which makes the passing of Australia’s Defence Legislation Amendment (Enhancement of Defence Force Response to Emergencies) Bill in 2020, even more reprehensible.

By passing such laws, Parliament placed Australians in enormous danger.

Danger that could one day put heavily armed men outside their front doors during a WHO imposed ‘state of emergency’.

Men who don’t answer to the Australian people OR their Parliament.

#StopTheTreaty #SaveOurSovereignty

THIS COULD BE YOUR LAST CHANCE TO HOLD POWER TO ACCOUNT – DON’T BLOW IT AUSTRALIA!

All over the world, governments are fast-tracking the imposition of tyrannical Digital ID laws on their citizens.

Digital ID laws have already been rammed through some of the smaller countries.  Governments in those countries are now bent on coercively forcing their citizens to accept them.

73 million Nigerians, for example, had access to their mobile phones cut off recently, when they refused to comply with the new laws.

Countries like New Zealand, Canada, UK and Singapore, all have Digital ID bills before parliament or will have soon.

The EU’s Digital ID was modelled on WEF’s Digital ID 2020, and has been ‘sold’ to Europeans as ‘reducing red tape, safeguarding privacy and making life ‘easier’.

‘It will make citizens completely powerless against governments and big corporations’ one horrified MEP said yesterday.

“We think it’s incredibly creepy.”

In France, Macron announced Digital ID the minute he was safely elected.

The ‘pre-text’ he chose to ‘sell’ it on was ‘stopping illegal immigration’.

According to the French President, forcing workers to apply for government ‘authorisation’ in order to get a job in France, will stop illegal migrants from “flooding our borders” and “taking our jobs”.

But it won’t JUST be ‘illegal migrants’ who are forced to be ‘biometrically authenticated’ in order to hold a job – It will be EVERY worker in France.

Darpa and Microsoft have put together something called the “Coalition for Content Provenance and Authentication”, to be incorporated into Digital ID.

It prevents anyone from buying a home, renting anything, buying a car, travelling etc, without ‘authorisation’ by the government.

Posting online or accessing your financial/medical/welfare accounts will only be possible with a Digital ID and a biometric ‘authentication’ scan.

The ‘synchronicity’ and speed with which all this is being done is astonishing.  Virtually every country in the world is singing from the same song-sheet on Digital ID.

Australians should be disgusted at their major parties’ bipartisan support for such an unconstitutional, internationally co-ordinated, ‘top down’ global power grab.

If it wasn’t for One Nation and other unaligned Senators, Digital ID would ALREADY be a reality in Australia.

That’s why the ONLY hope we have to defeat these unAustralian laws, is for everyone to FLOOD THE FLOORS OF FEDERAL PARLIAMENT with as many honest, ordinary Australians as possible – especially the Senate.

This means putting ideology to one side and doing something completely unprecedented on election day – you need to vote ALL the major party candidates last.

If we don’t, there will be NO STOPPING Digital ID laws in Australia.

Let’s save what little freedom and sovereignty this country has left, and break this corrupt and traitorous two-party paradigm once and for all.

THE AEC HAS TAKEN TO CENSORING ‘FREE SPEECH’ AND SMEARING OUR MINOR PARTIES, BUT HERE’S THE THING … 

The Australian Electoral Commission has been out and about early in the election cycle, throwing as much mud as it can on minor parties and their supporters.

According to the Guardian, AEC is accusing “minor party candidates” of making “baseless claims about election fraud”, calling it “dangerous misinformation imported from the US”.

I guess labelling anyone who criticises our electoral system as a ‘dangerous Trumper’, is easier than actually doing your job and safeguarding the integrity of Australia’s voting system.

The  AEC even had the gall to boast it had “successfully applied to Facebook to take action” against anyone discussing ‘voter fraud’ in the lead-up to the election, with at least five posts removed and two pages taken down entirely”.

Nice.  So, misusing your delegated power to silence free speech is now cause for crowing amongst Australia’s authoritarian public officials.

Here’s the thing.  Voter fraud is a real issue with real effects.

Just ask Gough Whitlam, who famously told Joe Riordan, after he lost the Sydney seat of Philip:

“Comrade, comrade, how negligent of you. To lose a seat in which there is not one, but three cemeteries is unforgivable.”

Once upon a time, Australian’s ballot papers were numbered and therefore traceable if a result was in doubt.

All attempt at accountability was discarded in the 1980s by Bob Hawke who said he wanted to make it “simpler and easier” to vote.

His “reforms” not only made it “easier” to vote – they made it easier to vote more than once.

Enrolling is now incredibly simple.  No ID required.  Just fill in a form online or at the Post Office and your good to go.

Subdivisional rolls, which once meant a name only appeared at one polling place, were scrapped and a person’s name now appears on the roll at EVERY polling booth in an electorate.

This means there is nothing to stop someone going from one booth to another to vote.

When later the votes are counted, there is no way of knowing whether a person has voted once, twice or multiple times.

The AEC may check a few ‘sample’ ballots here and there, but it simply doesn’t have the resources to check them ALL.

Pre-polling and postal voting has also increased enormously in recent years.

Did they vote again on election day? Nobody really knows, because nobody really checks.

The fact is Australia’s electoral system is a shambles that depends on a form of ‘honour system’ no business manager in the world would accept.

Electoral fraud is virtually undetectable and untraceable.

It is also a form of corruption that the AEC and major parties have ignored for years.
