Merck Created Hit List to "Destroy," "Neutralize" or "Discredit" Dissenting Doctors

Merck made a "hit list" of doctors who criticized Vioxx, according to testimony in a Vioxx class action case in Australia. The list, emailed between Merck employees, contained doctors' names with the labels "neutralise," "neutralised" or "discredit" next to them.

"The Australian:

The court was told that James Fries, professor of medicine at Stanford University, wrote to the then Merck head Ray Gilmartin in October 2000 to complain about the treatment of some of his researchers who had criticised the drug.

"Even worse were allegations of Merck damage control by intimidation," he wrote, … "This has happened to at least eight (clinical) investigators … I suppose I was mildly threatened myself but I never have spoken or written on these issues."

The allegations come on the heels of revelations that Merck created a fake medical journal – the Australasian Journal of Bone and Joint Medicine – in which to publish studies about Vioxx; had pop songs commissioned about Vioxx to inspire its staff, and paid ghostwriters to draft articles about the drug."

Brothers speared by marlin that crashed onto inflatable fishing boat off NSW coast

Sourced from QRes#8399

Two brothers have been seriously injured after being speared by a marlin that crashed onto their inflatable boat north of the NSW Central Coast.

The men, aged 46 and 48, were out on the ocean as part of a fishing trip with another 46-year-old man in a five-metre-long rigid hull-inflatable boat in the Solitary Islands Marine Park off Wooli around midday when the incident occurred.

The trio told NSW Police the marlin, which they estimated to have weighed between 80 and 100 kilograms, crashed onto the small vessel while they were travelling back to shore at a speed of about 21 knots.

The animal’s sharp snout sliced open the 46-year-old man’s lower right arm and caused a fracture, and also caused a deep cut to his brother’s right shoulder.

The third man in the vessel was not injured, while the fish then scrambled off the boat and back into the water.

Assange Faces Death Penalty As DoJ Files Espionage Act Charges

Sourced from QRes#8399

The worst fears of Julian Assange's legal team have just been realized.

Just as Wikileaks' editor in chief anticipated, the DoJ has unveiled a slate of new charges against Assange including 17 new counts of violating the Espionage Act stemming from his role in publishing the classified documents leaked by Chelsea Manning, per the New York Times.

In addition to significantly raising the punishment threshold (from a maximum of 5.5 years under the previous indictment to the prospect of a death sentence for violating the Espionage Act), the new charges will raise serious first amendment issues as Assange will become the first journalist charged under the Espionage Act.

Though it's not a guarantee, Espionage Act violations carry the prospect of a death sentence.

The Justice Department’s decision to pursue Espionage Act charges signals a dramatic escalation under President Trump to crack down on leaks of classified information and aims squarely at First Amendment protections for journalists. Most recently, law enforcement officials charged a former intelligence analyst with giving classified documents to The Intercept, a national security news website.

Legal scholars believe that prosecuting reporters over their work would violate the First Amendment, but the prospect has not yet been tested in court because the government had never charged a journalist under the Espionage Act.

Though he is not a conventional journalist, much of what Mr. Assange does at WikiLeaks is difficult to distinguish in a legally meaningful way from what traditional news organizations like The New York Times do: seek and publish information that officials want to be secret, including classified national security matters, and take steps to protect the confidentiality of sources.

Per the NYT, the Obama administration considered bringing the Espionage Act charges against Assange, but balked because it didn't want to raise the First Amendment issue. While Wikileaks had warned of this possibility, they suspected that the US would wait until Assange was on American soil before bringing Espionage Act-related charges.

Remember, the UK and Ecuador promised that no serious harm would befall Assange - ie that Assange wouldn't be put to death in the US. Now that the death penalty is a possibility, whether this helps or hurts Assange's chances of successfully battling extradition remains to be seen.

For clarification, it's really 18 charges. He is facing 17 MORE charges in addition to one charge that was unsealed shortly after Assange was arrested in London in April.

50 children saved after police bust online pedophile ring: Interpol

Sourced from QRes#8401

International police group Interpol said Thursday that nine people had been arrested in Thailand, Australia and the U.S. and 50 children had been rescued after investigators took down an online pedophilia ring. More arrests were expected as police in nearly 60 countries pursue investigations stemming from an Interpol operation launched two years ago into a hidden "dark web" site with 63,000 users worldwide.

Fifty children were rescued following the arrests. Police are trying to identify an additional 100 in images that had been shared on the internet's uncharted corners. Interpol said its Operation Blackwrist began after it found material that was traced back to a subscription-based site on the dark web, where people can use encrypted software to hide behind layers of secrecy. Dark web sites can't be found through search engines, and users need to have the specific URL address to land on a site. Interpol enlisted help from national agencies worldwide, with the US Homeland Security Investigations (HSI) department eventually tracking the site's IP address, where new photos and videos were posted weekly. The first arrests came in early 2018, when the site's main administrator, Montri Salangam, was detained in Thailand, and another administrator, Ruecha Tokputza, was captured in Australia.

'Child's worst nightmare' Salangam, whose victims included one of his nephews, was sentenced in June last year to 146 years in prison by Thai courts, while an associate, a pre-school teacher, got 36 years. Tokputza was handed a 40-year prison term at his trial in Australia last Friday, the longest ever for child sex offences in the country.

The Australian Associated Press reported that Tokputza, 31, pleaded guilty to 50 counts of abuse of 11 babies and children – one just 15 months old – between 2011 and 2018. "You are a child's worst nightmare, you are every parent's horror, you are a menace to the community," Judge Liesl Chapman said in Adelaide. Interpol did not identify the others arrested.

The HSI's regional attache in Bangkok, Eric McLoughlin, said in the statement that "numerous arrests" had been made in the U.S. Some held "positions of public trust," he said, and one individual was abusing his two-year-old stepbrother. "Operation Blackwrist sends a clear message to those abusing children, producing child sexual exploitation material and sharing the images online: We see you, and you will be brought to justice," Interpol's Secretary General Juergen Stock said.

'Modern fascism is breaking cover': Journalists react to Assange Espionage Act charges

Sourced from QRes#8401

The US government's indictment of Wikileaks publisher Julian Assange on 17 additional charges under the Espionage Act has shocked and horrified journalists who are calling it an unprecedented attack on press freedom.

The new indictment claims Assange endangered the lives of individuals working for the US government when Wikileaks published leaked documents received from intelligence analyst Chelsea Manning in 2010. Under the draconian Espionage Act, which has never before been used against a journalist publishing classified information, Assange faces up to 10 years in prison for each charge.

"Assange was complicit with Chelsea Manning…in unlawfully obtaining and disclosing classified documents related to the national defense," the Department of Justice said in a statement, while National Security Division head John Demers insisted "Julian Assange is no journalist."

Actual journalists, however, were horrified by the "unprecedented assault on the First Amendment."

Papua New Guinea's PM is forced to deny being Australian after his citizenship is called into question

Sourced from QRes#8406

Papua New Guinea's prime minister has told a court he's never been an Australian citizen amid questions about his eligibility to hold office.

Attorney-General Alfred Manase this week launched a probe into the citizenship of all 111 sitting members of PNG's parliament after outspoken opposition politician Bryan Kramer alleged PM Peter O'Neill held dual Australian citizenship through his Melbourne-born father.

Dual citizens are not eligible to serve as members of the Pacific country's parliament.

O'Neill's lawyers on Thursday submitted an affidavit saying he had never been an Australian citizen and did not hold an Australian passport.

The prime minister has also asked for a court order preventing Kramer from continuing to make what he calls defamatory statements.

Kramer has said he will only provide proof in court or parliament next week.

Global paedophile ring bust leads to the rescue of 50 children amid fears of hundreds of abuse cases

Sourced from QRes#8408

A global police operation has rescued 50 children from an international paedophilia ring, following the arrest of multiple people – including one man based in Australia.

The International Criminal Police Organisation, Interpol, first started investigating the ring in 2017 after the discovery of online material showing the abuse of 11 boys, all under the age of 13.

Authorities allege the material surfaced on the darkweb through a subscription-based website with an audience of almost 63,000 people worldwide.

After surveillance involving authorities from Thailand, the USA, Bulgaria, New Zealand and Australia, the website’s main administrator, Montri Salangam, was arrested in November 2017 in Thailand.

Police allege material on the website showed Salangam abusing 11 boys – one of whom was his nephew – after he lured them to his home with food, internet access and football games.

Another man, Ruecha Tokputza, was also arrested in Adelaide before 251 pornographic videos and 415 videos were found on his phone, with some showing him as the main abuser.

Tokputza’s youngest victim was just 15 months old. It is believed he also removed one child's nappy and abused another while he slept.

AUSTRALIAN ANONS have undoubtedly already noted the masonic checkerboard and iron cross symbols of the Queensland Police emblems. I just had a closer look at some of Qld Police's latest propaganda, which incorporates aboriginal art into their Luciferian agenda.

This new propaganda initiative is called "Look to the Stars," and seems like it's ostensibly an initiative for improved cooperation between aboriginal communities and Qld police. It's actually a bit unclear what it's really for, but they've still made a fancy website for it: https://looktothestars.mypolice.qld.gov.au/

There's not much on the site, and I'm not even sure who would bother to look at the site, except Luciferians. A few things jump out at me, though, including more iron crosses, and also the language of the text which recalls familiar Luciferian themes:

"Shining brightest are the nine stars of our constellation."

NOTE: The notion of "shining stars" is in the vein of sun/star worship of Lucifer (The god of the Morning Star).

Three stars "our guiding constellation lights up the sky, illuminating our way forward to the united future."

NOTE: Lucifer is the "Light Bringer" and the concept of "illumination" is where the term Illuminati originates, incorporating the idea that only the elites are "illuminated" or "enlightened." The rest of us are sheep/animals. Also the idea of "forwarding" is a Luciferian concept where elite leaders are meant to shepherd humanity toward the Luciferian vision of the world.

"Look to the stars."

NOTE: I couldn't help recalling Q's words here, "They thought we would follow the stars," which I think we all thought meant movie stars and elite leaders…but might actually mean something more darkly symbolic after all. Triple meanings exist.


"The paths SWIRL in and out of themselves."

NOTE: the swirl symbol familiar to the FBI.

"Dark moments" "Dark empty space"

NOTE: What this has to do with an optimistic police initative to repair broken relationships with lost communities, I'm not sure, but it definitely recalls some Luciferian concepts of "darkness" and quantum physics.

"The police…demonstrate absolute impartial service to the law, in complete independence of policy, AND WITHOUT REGARD TO THE JUSTICE OR INJUSTICE OF THE SUBSTANCE OF INDIVIDUAL LAWS."

NOTE: This was a bit unsettling. Sounds like the SS to me. Are they trying to convince the police to do things against the people even against their own conscience? I'm not sure.

NOTE: Aboriginal culture is ancient and full of symbolism and a deep understanding of the spiritual forces that exist in this world, so I have no doubt this artwork might also be drawing on venerable icons in the ancient aboriginal culture. But I also think much of that knowledge is lost and corrupted by the Luciferians, and I don't think these symbols here are being used as positive symbols of freedom, but are hand-picked to represent the Luciferian agenda.

So it begins…

Australia in Trump's sights for 'Russia hoax' investigation

New York: US President Donald Trump has asked his Attorney-General William Barr to investigate Australia's role in sparking the 2016 FBI probe into potential links between his election campaign and Russia.

On Friday, local time, Trump publicly singled out Australia and the UK - two of America's closest allies - when discussing what he calls the "Russia hoax" and "witch hunt".

The move was criticised by some members of US Congress who predicted that the investigation could undermine trust between the Five Eyes intelligence sharing nations: the US, Australia, UK, Canada and New Zealand.

On Thursday Trump gave Barr sweeping new authorities to conduct a review into how the 2016 Trump campaign's ties to Russia were investigated.

On Friday he announced that he had declassified potentially millions of pages of intelligence documents related to surveillance activities on his campaign and Barr would have "full and complete authority" to examine them.

"So what I've done is I've declassified everything," Trump told reporters at the White House before departing on a trip to Japan.

"He can look and I hope he looks at the UK and I hope he looks at Australia and I hope he looks at Ukraine.

"I hope he looks at everything, because there was a hoax that was perpetrated on our country."

Trump is believed to be operating without precedent by giving an official who is not in charge of an intelligence agency the power to reveal its secrets.

US Special Counsel Bob Mueller's report on links between the Trump campaign and Russia, pointed to a 2016 meeting between then Trump campaign aide George Papadopoulos and Australian then high commissioner to the UK, Alexander Downer, in a London bar as prompting the FBI to open its Trump-Russia probe.

The FBI probe led to Mueller being appointed as special counsel.

Papadopoulos has repeatedly claimed Downer spied on him during the bar meeting, a claim which Downer has rejected.

Downer has said that Papadopoulos told him at the bar Russia had damaging material on Trump's presidential rival Hillary Clinton.

The information was forwarded to Canberra and then passed on to US intelligence services and the FBI.

Papadopoulos denies telling Downer anything about Russia obtaining damaging information on Clinton.

In response to Trump's announcement Papadopoulos tweeted: "I have kept the heat on the UK and Australia for a while now. They will finally be exposed. None more than Clinton errand boy, Alexander Downer."

He continued: "Fortunately, so many of these clowns that started to spy on me were from the UK/Australia/Italy. Those governments have absolutely no loyalty to the Obama administration/Comey/Brennan now. They are going to be the straw that breaks the camel’s back."

Trump described the Russia probe as "an attempted coup or an attempted takedown of the President of the United States".

Trump also said he might ask outgoing British Prime Minister Theresa May about "potential Five Eyes spying" on his campaign.

"I may very well talk to her about that, yeah," Trump said.

"There's word and rumour that the FBI and others were involved, CIA were involved, with the UK, having to do with the Russian hoax," Trump said.

Jim Himes, a Democrat member of the House Intelligence Committee, said Trump was damaging alliances and potentially exposing confidential sources for his own political purposes.

"What the UK and Australia and New Zealand see is because the President, in order to forward a political fantasy, may blow our sources and methods, put our people at risk," Himes told CNN.

"This is a very dangerous thing for the United States."

Papadopoulos was one of Mueller's first convictions, with the former aide pleading guilty to lying to the FBI. He was sentenced to 14 days' jail.

Papadopoulos, Republican members of Congress and right-wing US media figures have been urging the president to declassify the documents.

"It's the greatest hoax, probably, in the history of our country and somebody has to get to the bottom of it," Trump said.

"We'll see.

"But for a long period of time, they've wanted me to declassify and I did."

Snap ‘climate emergency’ rally to disrupt parts of Melbourne CBD at midday

A group that caused widespread disruptions in London last month has gathered for a “snap rally” in the Melbourne CBD.

Sourced from QRes#8409

More than 1000 people marched through the Melbourne CBD to lay “dead” at one of the city’s busiest intersections this afternoon.

Holding placards and banners that read “don’t burn my future” and “too late you bastards we’re done asking nicely”, the so-called snap ended at Bourke and Swanston streets for a “die-in”.

The climate emergency rally was organised by Extinction Rebellion, the same group behind large-scale disruptions in London last month.

More than 5000 people responded to an invitation to attend but less than half of that number showed up.

Among them were hundreds of school students — including a pair who climbed on top of tram stop shelters to enjoy the view.

Statement from the Press Secretary | The White House

Issued on: May 23, 2019

Today, at the request and recommendation of the Attorney General of the United States, President Donald J. Trump directed the intelligence community to quickly and fully cooperate with the Attorney General’s investigation into surveillance activities during the 2016 Presidential election. The Attorney General has also been delegated full and complete authority to declassify information pertaining to this investigation, in accordance with the long-established standards for handling classified information. Today’s action will help ensure that all Americans learn the truth about the events that occurred, and the actions that were taken, during the last Presidential election and will restore confidence in our public institutions.

Trump Orders Declassification of Obama-Era Russia Probe Intel

Democrats leading the impeachment charge against President Trump have repeatedly called on him to justify his assertion that Obama administration officials tried to undermine his 2016 presidential campaign and election. On Thursday night, he took the first step in trying to do just that when he ordered the declassification of intelligence documents that he has said show the pathway Obama officials navigated to spy on the campaign.

In a directive to the CIA, the director of National Intelligence, the Pentagon and several other national security agencies, Trump handed Attorney General Bill Barr the authority to declassify or downgrade “information or intelligence that relates to the attorney general’s review.” The president ordered the agencies to “promptly provide such assistance and information as the attorney general may request in connection with that review.”

Barr has begun looking into the origins and timing of the FBI’s 2016 counter-intelligence investigation, code-named “Crossfire Hurricane,” aimed at uncovering evidence that Trump campaign officials were conspiring with Russians to interfere in the election. The FBI’s probe included wiretaps on a Trump adviser Carter Page.

Trump’s move came earlier than many of his allies and associates had expected. Most had expected him to wait until Justice Department Inspector General Michael Horowitz released the results of his year-long investigation into the sources and methods the FBI used to begin surveillance on the Trump campaign based at least in part on discredited information gathered by former British spy Christopher Steele.

Barr has said the inspector general is wrapping up his probe and could release a final report as early as next month.

But after a series of fiery clashes between Trump and Speaker Nancy Pelosi over the last two days, Trump moved to begin the declassification process.

White House press secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders in a statement said the order “will help Americans learn the truth about the events that occurred, and the actions that were taken during the last presidential election and will restore confidence in our public institutions.”

Sanders also underscored the “the full and complete” authority Barr now has “to declassify information pertaining to this investigation, in accordance with the long-established standards for handling classified information.”

The declassification process will undoubtedly shed new light on the role FBI officials, including former Director James Comey and his deputy, Andrew McCabe, as well as former FBI agent Peter Strzok, lawyer Lisa Page and former Associate Deputy Director Bruce Ohr, played in seeking the warrant application under the Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Act to begin spying on Page.

The move also could help detail the role former CIA Director John Brennan played in pushing the narrative regarding Russian efforts to penetrate the Trump campaign. The first evidence of those efforts, according to media reports, came from foreign intelligence sources’ tipoffs, based on voice intercepts, computer traffic or human sources based outside the United States, dating back to 2015.

Former National Intelligence Director James Clapper has argued that the unproven “Russian dossier” that Steele composed — and which was bankrolled by the Democratic National Committee and the Clinton campaign — was not the primary source for the FISA warrants. If not, then the declassified FISA-related documents will undoubtedly show what other information officials used to secure the surveillance warrants.

Nearly two years ago, when Trump accused Susan Rice, Obama’s national security adviser, of engaging in the “unmasking” of U.S. persons as part of the counter-intelligence probe, a potentially criminal act, Democratic Rep. Adam Schiff said he should show proof that it occurred.

“If he’s going to make accusations of criminality against anyone, he needs to show evidence to support that kind of charge,” the then-ranking member of the House Intelligence Committee said at the time.

Rep. Eric Swalwell, now a candidate for the Democratic presidential nomination, went further, arguing that “if the president wants to say that Susan Rice committed a crime, he has the power to declassify. No one else does.”

Trump tried to declassify materials related to the FBI’s Russian investigation back in September, but Democrats objected that doing so would compromise FBI “sources and methods.” The president abandoned the plan after key allies called on him not to release the material over concerns that doing so could have a negative impact on the then-ongoing Russia probe led by Special Counsel Robert Mueller.

George Papadopoulos Twitter Round Up

It’s time to also understand why two US intel guys were spying on me in London days before Clinton errand boy/US intel asset, Alexander Downer, started to spy as well. Who was sending these jokers? Out them all and their handlers.


I think a short phone call with Bibi Netanyahu will help the president get to the bottom of what the Australians were really up to. Downer went on a bizarre rant and blamed the Israelis for him spying on me in a recent interview he gave.


Fortunately, so many of these clowns that started to spy on me were from the UK/Australia/Italy. Those governments have absolutely no loyalty to the Obama administration/Comey/Brennan now. They are going to be the straw that breaks the camel’s back.


Italy was the first to flip. They are giving up Mifsud. The rest of the dominoes are all falling after him implicating the UK and Australia with the FBI/CIA.

Major new risk noted by Swiss Re in their 2019 SONAR report: 5G "Off the leash: The spread of 5G technology":

Sourced from QRes#8414

Digital technology's clash with legacy infrastructure, new risks emerging from the spread of 5G mobile networks, increasingly limited fiscal and monetary policy flexibility, and genetic testing and its implications for the insurance industry are challenges with potentially high impact.

Off the leash: The spread of 5G technology

5G will enable wireless connectivity in real time for any device of the internet of things (IoT), such as autonomous cars or sensor-steered factories. Current concerns regarding potential negative health effects from electromagnetic fields are likely to increase. In addition, hackers can also exploit 5G speed and volume to acquire (or steal) more data faster. Major concerns are possible privacy and security breaches, as well as espionage.

Aging infrastructure, 5G, economy among top emerging risks: Swiss Re

Aging infrastructure, the spread of 5G technology, a potential economic downturn, the growth of genetic testing and climate change are the five emerging risks with the highest potential impact on the insurance and reinsurance industry in 2019, according to a new Swiss Re Institute report.

Technological improvements are ongoing and hardware in critical infrastructure, including smart electric power grids or pipelines and hospitals, is often outdated, according to the Swiss Re SONAR report on new emerging risks published on Wednesday.

“As a consequence, insurers face higher risk accumulation unexpected loss potential in the areas of property damage, bodily injury, business interruption and cyber risk,” the report said.

In addition, advancements in 5G mobile networks will enable wireless connectivity in real time for Internet of Things devices, according to the report.

“Current concerns regarding potential negative health effects from electromagnetic fields are likely to increase,” the report said. “Hackers can also exploit 5G speed and volume to acquire (or steal) more data faster. Major concerns are possible privacy and security breaches and espionage.”


Anons comments (needs sauce)

Insurers are not going to underwrite the health risks associated with 5G. Who is going to carry the can? When the chickens come home to roost? And the epidemiological ducks are in a row, showing thousands of people dying around towers?

There was one estimate by an Australian insurer that tried to quantify the liabilities involved with the wireless industry. They returned a single word: "Incalculable." The insurance industry has woken up to the dangers of 5G. They are not fooled; and that should send a huge message to anyone watching this industry. How can you undertake an enterprise of this scale, with no research and no standards and no regulations and absolutely no underwriting of the health risks? This is gross economic malpractice.

‘Everyone else must take my place’: Assange in letter from British prison

Sourced from QRes#8415

In a handwritten letter from Belmarsh prison, WikiLeaks co-founder Julian Assange says he is being denied a chance to defend himself and that elements in the US that “hate truth, liberty and justice” want him extradited and dead.

The letter was sent to independent British journalist Gordon Dimmack. It was dated May 13 – ten days before the US announced 17 additional charges under the Espionage Act against the jailed whistleblower.

In light of the new indictment, Dimmack read out the letter in a YouTube video. A photo of the handwritten note was soon posted online as well.

“I have been isolated from all ability to prepare to defend myself: no laptop, no internet, ever, no computer, no library, so far, but even if I get access it will just be for a half an hour, with everyone else, once a week,” Assange wrote. “The other side? A superpower that has been preparing for 9 years, with hundreds of people and untold millions spent on the case.”

Assange was arrested on April 11, after Ecuador revoked his political asylum and UK police seized him from the Latin American country’s embassy in London. He was sentenced to 50 weeks behind bars for skipping bail, and sent to Belmarsh, a prison south of London once dubbed 'British Guantanamo' for being used to jail terrorism suspects.

I am defenseless.

“I am unbroken, albeit literally surrounded by murderers, but, the days where I could read and speak and organize to defend myself, my ideals, and my people are over until I am free! Everyone else must take my place,” Assange wrote in the letter.

The WikiLeaks publisher had sought refuge in Ecuador in 2012, claiming – correctly, as it turned out – that trumped-up charges in Sweden would be used to get him extradited to the US. A secret indictment of Assange, only made public in March, charged him with violating the Espionage Act over the 2010 publication of secret US military and diplomatic documents.

“The US government, or rather, those regrettable elements in it that hate truth, liberty and justice, want to cheat their way into my extradition and death, rather than letting the public hear the truth, for which I have won the highest awards in journalism and have been nominated 7 times for the Nobel Peace Prize,” Assange wrote.

Truth, ultimately, is all we have.

The new charges against Assange have alarmed even the mainstream media outlets that have spent years pouring vitriol on WikiLeaks, as they began to realize his prosecution along those lines would essentially criminalize all journalism. However, because Assange and WikiLeaks have been demonized by advocates of the Russiagate conspiracy theory as “agents of the Kremlin” and spies, media pushback against the charges has been muted at best.

Trump ‘Hopes’ Barr Scrutinizes British And Australian Role In ‘Hoax’ Investigation

Sourced from QRes#8417

President Donald Trump said Friday he hopes the attorney general looks at the roles played by the British, Australian and Ukrainian governments in the investigation of the Trump campaign.

Trump called out the allied governments when asked about his decision to authorize Barr to declassify a slew of documents related to the origins of the Russia probe.

“I hope he looks at everything,” Trump said of Barr.

President Donald Trump on Friday said he hopes Attorney General William Barr looks at intelligence the British, Australian and Ukrainian governments provided their American counterparts as part of the investigation of the Trump campaign.

“And I hope he looks at the U.K., and I hope he looks at Australia, and I hope he looks at Ukraine. I hope he looks at everything, because there was a hoax that was perpetrated on our country,” Trump told reporters of Barr.

Trump authorized Barr to declassify documents Thursday related to the FBI’s surveillance of the Trump campaign. He also instructed other federal agencies, including the CIA and FBI, to provide classified materials to Barr as part of an inquiry he is making into the government surveillance of the Trump campaign.

Barr has said while he believes “spying” occurred against the campaign, he wants to find out whether it was authorized and legal.

“[W]hat I’ve done is I’ve declassified everything,” Trump said Friday.

Aussie MSM reporting of Trumps Comments

#1 9 News

US President Donald Trump wants Australia's role in sparking the 2016 FBI probe into potential links between his election campaign and Russia examined by US Attorney General William Barr.

In a potentially explosive development for the historically rock solid US-Australian alliance, Trump has publicly named Australia for the first time while discussing what he calls the "Russia hoax" and "witch hunt".

The move was denounced by some members of US Congress who predicted trust between the Five Eyes intelligence sharing nations - the US, Australia, UK, Canada and New Zealand - could be eroded.

Trump said he has declassified potentially millions of pages of intelligence documents related to surveillance activities on his campaign and Mr Barr would have "full and complete authority" to examine them.

"So what I've done is I've declassified everything," Trump told reporters at the White House on Friday before departing on a trip to Japan.

Papadopoulos has repeatedly claimed Downer spied on him during the bar meeting, a claim which Downer has rejected.

Downer has said that Papadopoulos told him at the bar Russia had damaging material on Trump's presidential rival Hillary Clinton.

The information was forwarded to Canberra and then passed on to US intelligence services and the FBI.

Papadopoulos denies telling Downer anything about Russia obtaining damaging information on Clinton.

In response to Trump's announcement Papadopoulos tweeted: "I have kept the heat on the UK and Australia for a while now. They will finally be exposed. None more than Clinton errand boy, Alexander Downer."

Huawei "Spent All Their Resources Stealing", Stunning New Exposé Shows

Sourced from QRes#8247

The accusations of Huawei stealing trade secrets from across the world are hitting a fever pitch, thanks to a new Wall Street Journal expose that blows open accusations of theft and stealing of trade secrets. The article includes insights from lawsuits, Huawei’s competitors and former employees. Allegations run the gamut against the company: from its business practices, to the science behind its 5G, all the way down to copying the text it used in its user manuals.

Huawei has grown into China’s global technology powerhouse, as a leader in 5G networks and giant maker of telecom equipment. The company employs 188,000 people in more than 170 countries and sells more smartphones than Apple. It also provides cloud services, manufactures microchips and runs internet cables undersea that help route global traffic.

The United States is finally following in the footsteps of places like Australia and putting pressure on the company out of concern for national security. Just last week, the Trump administration unveiled measures to help cut Huawei off from American suppliers and stop it from doing business in the United States. The administration believes that the company takes its orders directly from Beijing and that its standing as the top telecom company in the world makes it a powerful tool for China's authoritarian government.

Huawei writes the whole thing off as one big misunderstanding and says that it complies with laws in global markets: “We respect the integrity of intellectual property rights—for our own business, as well as peer, partner and competitor companies,” the company said.

The US had done little to confront Huawei head-on up until the last couple of months. This allowed the Chinese giant to grow bigger than companies like Cisco and Motorola, while at the same time settling civil litigation along the way without admitting fault.

Robert Read, a former contract engineer from 2002 to 2003 in Huawei’s Sweden office said:

“They spent all their resources stealing technology. You’d steal a motherboard and bring it back and they’d reverse-engineer it.”

"America is following the footsteps of Australia?!"

Is that a typo? Surely you meant Australia WILL BE following in the footsteps of America.

Notice how, when they cover Trump's Huawei ban, the Aus MSM never even mentions the fact that the ban might be because HUWAWEI IS A THREAT TO HUMANITY. Instead they're always just, "so what's a consumer gonna do if they want to download a new app from Google Play like Candy Crush 7?"

Aus MSM don't even ask what it might mean if Huawei is trying to spy on the people and on government in a VERY REAL WAR. Lives are at stake! Freedom is at stake! The whole Planet is at stake! But you'd never know it from ABC or Sky.

Has this Australia thread been taken over by shills? Is that why the last Aus thread was attacked?

Sinodinos tapped for US role as Trump raises questions over Australia

Scott Morrison has tapped one of the Coalition's most trusted voices, Arthur Sinodinos, to become the next ambassador to the United States as President Donald Trump raises questions over Australia's role in the FBI inquiry into his 2016 election.

Ahead of what could be a testing period for Australia's relationship with its most important diplomatic relationship, Senator Sinodinos - widely tipped to take a cabinet position in the re-elected Morrison government - will head to Washington.

The term of Joe Hockey, the current ambassador and former treasurer in the Abbott government, is to finish at the end of the year. This enabled Mr Morrison to offer the post to Senator Sinodinos who is expected to take over in January 2020, the start of a presidential election year.

Senator Sinodinos said he was pleased to take up the posting.

"I'm looking forward to the opportunity to serve my country abroad in this way," he said.

"This is a very good opportunity to regroup as a family after the health issues of recent years."

A highly respected former cabinet minister and chief of staff to John Howard, Senator Sinodinos served as Malcolm Turnbull's cabinet secretary but was forced to stand down to undergo treatment for non-Hodgkin lymphoma. He has since made a full recovery and was widely tipped to return to cabinet under Mr Morrison.

Senator Sinodinos, who will remain in the Senate until his posting, will walk straight into President Trump's concerns about the FBI investigation that led to the Mueller inquiry.

US Special Counsel Bob Mueller's report on links between the Trump campaign and Russia, pointed to a 2016 meeting between then Trump campaign aide George Papadopoulos and Australian then high commissioner to the UK, Alexander Downer, in a London bar as prompting the FBI to open its Trump-Russia probe.

The FBI probe led to Mueller being appointed as special counsel.

Ahead of a weekend trip to Japan, President Trump said he had declassified intelligence documents so the truth of the FBI inquiry could be determined.

"He can look and I hope he looks at the UK and I hope he looks at Australia and I hope he looks at Ukraine.

"I hope he looks at everything, because there was a hoax that was perpetrated on our country."

United States Studies Centre fellow Bruce Wolpe said Senator Sinodinos would be a fine appointment because of his experience and sharp political instincts.

He said they would come in handy given the move by President Trump to investigate the events of 2016.

"The trick will be engaging with President Trump and figuring out how to protect Australia's interests and dealing with a very transactional president," he said.

"The Mueller investigation is clearly in the mind of the President and how he thinks about the relationship. There is a big risk from Australia's perspective that in the future, if there is a request of President Trump, he's going to take into account the history of the relationship."

Mr Morrison would not be drawn on Mr Trump's comments or move, saying he would not comment on an investigation that was under way.

Senator Sinodinos focused on the close ties between the two nations.

"We are two of the world's oldest continuing democracies and have fought alongside one another in all the major conflicts of the last century. Above all we stand for humane and decent universal values," he said.

Papua New Guinea prime minister resigns after 7 years

PORT MORESBY, Papua New Guinea – Papua New Guinea Prime Minister Peter O'Neill has resigned after seven years on the job.

His announcement follows weeks of high profile defections from his government to the opposition.

O'Neill said in a news conference in the capital of Port Moresby that recent movements in parliament have shown a "need for change."

He handed over his leadership to a former prime minister and current member of parliament, Sir Julius Chan.

On Friday, one of O Neill's key coalition allies abandoned him. The opposition bloc has since been saying it has 62 lawmakers in its camp, which would give it a majority in parliament.

The resignation will be formalized when O'Neill visits the governor-general, the official representative of Queen Elizabeth II.

Sea level data ALTERED by scientists to create false impression of rising oceans

Sourced from QRes#8432

A scientific paper published by a team of Australian researchers has revealed a startling find: Scientists at the Permanent Service for Mean Sea Level (PSMSL) have been “adjusting” historical data regarding tide levels in the Indian Ocean. Their “highly questionable” activities have depicted rapidly rising seas — but the truth is that there is no reason to be alarmed at all. Scientists have found that sea levels are stable — and have been for the entirety of the 20th century.

To put it simply, these PSMSL “scientists” have been arbitrarily changing their data in order to create the illusion of a problem that doesn’t actually exist.

According to the Australian research team, sea levels in the Indian ocean have remained stable for decades. Dr. Albert Parker and Dr. Clifford Ollier recently published their astounding research in the journal Earth Systems and Environment; their extensive research gives an in-depth look at how this massive deception was undertaken.

PSMSL “realigned” stable sea level trends

As the researchers report, there are multiple lines of evidence that show sea levels in the Indian Ocean are completely stable. Further, the scientific duo explains that the data-adjusters at PSMSL were taking “misaligned or incomplete” sea level data (which showed no rise in sea levels, or even decreasing sea levels) and “realigning” them.

As Parker and Ollier contend, “It is always highly questionable to shift data collected in the far past without any proven new supporting material.” But what makes the PSMSL’s data shifts even more questionable is the fact that older datasets were adjusted to look lower while all newer sets of sea level data were re-configured to appear higher. When these arbitrary adjustments are taken together, it creates the appearance of a significant and concerning rise in sea levels — one that is entirely artificial.

Citigroup, JP Morgan, UBS Face Forex Cartel Class Action in Australia

Sourced from QRes#8346

Citigroup Inc., Royal Bank of Scotland Group Plc and JPMorgan Chase & Co. are among five banks named in a class action lawsuit in Australia seeking damages for colluding on foreign-exchange trading strategies.

UBS Group AG and Barclays Plc were also named in the suit lodged Monday in the Federal Court by Maurice Blackburn Lawyers. The action claims the banks colluded to rig foreign exchange rates, boosting profits at the expense of Australian businesses and investors, the law firm said in a statement.

Spokespeople at Citi and JPMorgan in Sydney had no immediate comment on the suit. UBS didn’t immediately return a call seeking comment. A representative for Barclays in Hong Kong declined to comment. A representative for RBS in London didn’t immediately respond to an inquiry outside of office hours.

Citi, RBS, JPMorgan and Barclays were among five lenders that agreed to pay European Union fines totaling 1.07 billion euros ($1.2 billion) earlier this month for colluding on foreign exchange strategies. UBS escaped a fine because it was the first to tell regulators about the collusion.

Traders allegedly used chat rooms bearing names such as “The Cartel,” “The Bandits’ Club,” and “The Mafia,” and communicated directly with each other to coordinate the manipulation of FX benchmark rates, control the pricing of spreads and to trigger client stop-loss orders and limit orders, Maurice Blackburn said.

The manipulation of benchmark foreign-exchange rates was exposed in 2013 via Bloomberg stories, triggering regulatory probes in the U.S., the U.K. and Switzerland. More than a dozen financial institutions have paid about $11.8 billion in fines and penalties globally, with another $2.3 billion spent to compensate customers and investors.

While the U.S. has won guilty pleas from JPMorgan, Citigroup, RBS and Barclays, three British traders in the group known as “The Cartel” were acquitted by a U.S. federal court last year of using a chatroom to coordinate trades and manipulate prices on the spot exchange rate for euros and U.S. dollars.

Maurice Blackburn’s suit claims Australian companies and investors, including importers, exporters, institutional investors and businesses with overseas operations have been affected by the distortion of currency markets by the five banks. The action is on behalf of customers who bought or sold more than A$500,000 ($347,000) of foreign currency between Jan. 1 2008 and Oct. 15, 2013, the law firm said.

Australian ships tailed by Chinese military in South China Sea

The Australian Navy was closely followed by the Chinese military in a recent transit of the South China Sea, near islands controversially claimed by Beijing.

Defence confirmed it had a "professional" and "friendly" interaction with the People's Liberation Army during Indo-Pacific Endeavour 2019, an ADF regional engagement mission which wrapped up today.

HMAS Canberra has anchored at Darwin, ending a three-month-long tour of seven Asian nations involving three other Australian warships, aircraft and more than 1,200 defence personnel.

Air Commodore Richard Owen spoke to the ABC on board the Task Group's flagship HMAS Canberra after she arrived in the Top End.

He said the Australian Task Group made two transits through the South China Sea, where the Chinese military keeps a close eye on international visitors who pass through the contested waters.

"It is controversial, we were quite aware of that," Air Commodore Owen said.

"We transited north and south through the South China Sea in international waters and we were engaged, as we normally are, by other navies."

The ABC can reveal the Australians were closely tailed by the Chinese military earlier this month as they made their way towards Vietnam, and as the Task Group departed Cam Ranh port.

"We were sensitive to all navy interactions, we train for that, we're aware of how they will behave and how we behave, so I had no extra worries about it at all, I was confident in the capabilities of the Royal Australian Navy and the ADF," Commodore Owen said.

"They'll want to know who we are, where we're going and what our intentions are, and the Chinese were no different — they were friendly, they were professional."

Last year the ABC revealed three Australian warships were also challenged by the Chinese military as they made their way to Vietnam for a three-day goodwill visit in Ho Chi Minh city.

During this year's Indo-Pacific Endeavour mission, HMAS Canberra was joined by HMAS Success, HMAS Newcastle and HMAS Parramatta, as well as embarked MH-60R maritime combat helicopters and MRH-90 maritime support helicopters.

New Labor leader Anthony Albanese calls for end to climate wars

Anthony Albanese has called for an end to the climate wars, saying he wants to work with Scott Morrison on an emissions reduction plan that benefits both the environment and the economy.

After being confirmed as the party’s new leader on Monday morning, the senior leftwinger has also urged more people to join the Labor party, saying the movement needs to be “larger and more inclusive” to win an election in three years’ time. Arguing the opposition had many lessons to learn following its shock election defeat under Bill Shorten, Albanese said he believed that “conflict fatigue” was among the reasons the party had failed to convince voters of the need for change.

“People want solutions, not arguments. They have conflict fatigue,” Albanese said.

“I am a values politician, but I also say this to Scott Morrison – I’m not Tony Abbott.”

Flagging his desire to see bipartisanship on the vexed issues of constitutional recognition for indigenous Australians and climate policy, Albanese said he was prepared to work with the Coalition to develop a consensus position on a national emissions reduction plan.

“Let me say this unequivocally – the science is in, climate change is real, we must act,” Albanese said.

“Action will create jobs, it will benefit our economy and it will benefit our environment.

“The time for the ongoing conflict over these issues surely is over.”

But while indicating he was prepared to cooperate on some policy areas, Albanese also pledged to “strongly, forcefully” hold the Morrison government to account.

Albanese’s call for climate policy certainty comes as Labor’s shadow environment minister Tony Burke indicated the party could move away from its support of a direct market mechanism to tackle emissions reduction, suggesting Labor shift to a regulation and spending model, such as that being advocated by the Democrats in the US. Albanese said he was neither a “neither a climate sceptic, nor … a market sceptic”, saying he had consulted with business about the need for policy certainty.

“They are crying out for certainty, and it is time that the government worked with the opposition to deliver that certainty going into the future.”

Treasurer Josh Frydenberg has indicated the Coalition will pursue the climate policy it took to the election which centres on a $3.5bn emissions reduction fund. Pledging to work hard over the next three years to convince people of the need to vote Labor, Albanese acknowledged the party needed to do more to “reach out” to those who didn’t support either major party at the May 18 election, while conceding Labor had a “big mountain to climb” to form government.

No Australian request for US Barr probe

Australia hasn't yet been asked to "participate" in an investigation into the circumstances that sparked a multi-year probe into whether Donald Trump's 2016 US presidential campaign colluded with Russia.

US Attorney-General William Barr has been tasked with examining the events that prompted the FBI probe, and Mr Trump wants Australia's role examined.

The president said on Friday he has declassified "potentially millions of pages" of intelligence documents related to surveillance activities on his campaign so Mr Barr can analyse them.

"He can look and I hope he looks at the UK and I hope he looks at Australia and I hope he looks at Ukraine," Mr Trump told reporters.

Foreign Minister Marise Payne says Australia has not been asked to be part of Mr Barr's investigation.

"We have not been asked to participate. We would, of course, consider such a request were it to be made," she told ABC Radio National on Monday.

The minister has also followed Prime Minister Scott Morrison's lead by not commenting on what the investigation may cover.

"We don't intend to engage in a public commentary that might entail any risk that we're seen to prejudice the ongoing examination of these matters in the US."

The move has been denounced by some members of US Congress who predicted trust between the Five Eyes intelligence sharing nations - the US, Australia, UK, Canada and New Zealand - could be eroded.

The FBI probe led to Bob Mueller being appointed as US Special Counsel to investigate links between the Trump campaign and Russia.

His report pointed to a 2016 meeting between in a London bar between then Trump campaign aide George Papadopoulos and Australian's then high commissioner to the UK Alexander Downer.

Mr Downer claimed Mr Papadopoulos told him at the bar Russia had damaging material on Trump's presidential rival Hillary Clinton.

The information was forwarded to Canberra and then passed on to US intelligence services and the FBI.

Mr Papadopoulos in return claimed Mr Downer spied on him during the bar meeting, a charge Mr Downer rejects.

Papadopoulos later pleading guilty to lying to the FBI. He was sentenced to 14 days' jail.

George Pell will not seek reduced sentence if appeal against guilty verdict fails

RP from QRes#8439

Pell has been behind bars since February and is due to return to court next month to fight his conviction.

But he will not be adding an appeal against the six-year prison sentence handed down by County Court Chief Judge Peter Kidd in March.

Pell was ordered to serve at least three years and eight months of that sentence after being convicted by a jury in December of one charge of sexual penetration of a child and four charges of committing an indecent act with or in the presence of a child.

Pell raped one 13-year-old choirboy and sexually molested his friend in the sacristy of St Patrick's Cathedral in Melbourne in 1996 when he was newly-installed as Archbishop.

Hey genius just think for a second.

No twenty, not thirty, not even ten.

Over 50 plus years just TWO…..2

You ever think something is really wrong here????

This just not add up……

Pell could be like Flynn or Rogers….

He knows where the bodies are buried.

This could be the big frame up of exposing the entire PEDOPHILE elites of Australia.

Pedophilia isn't just stopping at one or two.

There is a lot more to this story to come.



I have wondered if Cardinel Pell was a "Vatican hit" to warn other Church leaders what will happen if you criticize this Pope or expose the corruption in the Vatican Bank. Notice how Pope Francis tried to cover and even promote other pedo bishops and cardinals. Not one word to vouch for Pell. I wonder if Pell is, as you said the Vatican's version of Flynn or Rogers.

Army Virtue-Tweet Backfires: 1000s Expose "Heartbreaking" Horrors Of War

Today is Memorial Day in the U.S., an occasion for remembering the fallen who have served in the military. The U.S. Army twitter account invited people to respond to the question "How has serving impacted you?"


"Tweet after tweet after tweet, people used the opportunity that the Army had inadvertently given them to describe how they or their loved one had been chewed up and spit out by a war machine that never cared about them."

11,000 people have responded. Nearly all gave testimonies to the horrors of war, the destruction of lives and the inadequate care of wounded veterans. The Zerohedge article has another 2,400 comments.

Most realize that all the wars in our lifetime have served the interests of the elite at the expense of themselves or their family and friends. The people are awakening.

US investigative journalist Alex Bruce finds evidence the UK interfered in the US election, not Russia (posted in Cairnsnews.org)

RP from QRes#8441

United Kingdom begs Trump not to declassify Russia files – The Crown interfered with the US election, not Russia. The City of London’s Operation Crossfire Hurricane tried to take down a US President. May’s resignation over Brexit is a red herring

For a very low-budget, simple video, this piece by The Vincent Vendetta Channel is very affecting.

We’ve touched on the topic of our Very British Coup d’État in the past but not often enough.

As the DECLAS unfolds, we’ll be hearing more about how the American Nightmare we’ve been living is actually the product of fevered British imaginations consumed with the Great Game.

Before the dodgy work-product commissioned by Hillary Clinton’s campaign became known as the “Pee-Pee Dossier” or as the “Steel Dossier”, it was referred to within the FBI as the “Crown material”. Why, one might ask?

Vincent Vendetta tells us, “Maybe it’s because Operation Crossfire hurricane, which is what they named the operation to take down a duly elected American president mostly occurred on UK soil…I think it’s important to understand that Operation Crossfire Hurricane was a UK state project, a cross-party project, meaning they were all involved [and] Theresa May is guilty of committing an Act of War against the United States, by order of Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II and her Privy Council…The declassification of these documents will show how the UK Corporation risked all our lives in order to cover up their crimes.

“Would you like to know why [Theresa May] really resigned? You didn’t think it was about Brexit, did you? They never expected [Hillary] to lose and since the day she did, they’ve been pushing for a nuclear World War III with Russia!

“Expand your thinking. The Skripal Case, the Russian Dossier, all of it was lies. They risked a nuclear war on all of us, in order to cover up their crimes.

“What they were blaming Russia for, they were guilty of themselves. It was her majesty’s government that meddled with the US elections. It was the UK government that did their very best to overthrow a duly elected president. It was the UK government that wanted to overrule the American people. Now, ask yourselves, why on Earth would they do that? Their actions are, to put it mildly an Act of War.

“This is a message to the people of the United Kingdom as a nation. We need to start preparing for what’s about to come. The storm is here and this is a storm so big, it has the potential to devastate our political landscape and demolish the throne of this Kingdom.

In another all too ironic twist, today is also the day that failed UK Prime Minister Theresa May announces she is stepping down. I wonder what part in this hole spying scheme May played. She was an epic failure on Brexit, I wouldn’t be surprised if she botched the Trump coup attempt too.

This is just the beginning. Thanks to Trump finally declassifying the spying/coup documents, we may finally see just how deep this whole coup attempt runs. Somehow, I doubt only the UK and Australia are involved.

Swedish court rejects delay of Assange hearing over ill-health: lawyer

STOCKHOLM (Reuters) - A Swedish court has rejected a request to postpone a planned hearing to rule on the detention in absentia of WikiLeaks founder Julian Assange as part of an ongoing investigation into alleged rape, a defense lawyer for Assange said on Tuesday

The Swedish prosecutor heading an investigation into the rape allegation against Assange, which he denies, this month filed a request with a local court for him to be detained with a hearing scheduled for June 3.

Swedish defense lawyer Per Samuelson told Reuters he had visited Assange in British custody on Friday after which he had sought to have the hearing postponed.

“One of the reasons is that Assange’s health situation on Friday was such that it was not possible to conduct a normal conversation with him,” Samuelson said.

“I meant that it should be postponed until I had time to meet again and go through the issues in peace and quiet. I suggested no specific date and meant it should be postponed until everything was ready, but the district court has now decided that this won’t happen.”

The Uppsala district court, where the hearing is due to take place, was not immediately available for comment. A prosecutors’ office spokesman declined to comment.

Sweden reopened the rape investigation in early May. It was begun in 2010 but dropped in 2017 years after Assange took refuge in Ecuador’s London embassy. Assange was arrested in London last month after spending seven years inside the embassy.

If the court order is granted, it would be the first step in a process to have Assange extradited from Britain, where he is serving a 50-week sentence for skipping bail.

U.S. authorities are separately seeking to extradite Assange on charges relating to the public release by Wikileaks of a cache of secret documents and last week unveiled 17 new criminal charges against him, including espionage.

The British courts will have to rule on the two extradition requests, with the home secretary having the final say on which one takes precedence.

On April 1, 2019, Breitbart News reported New Zealand’s ban on “military-style” rifles also prohibited ownership of pump shotguns, “high capacity” magazines, and certain gun parts. These controls were enacted in response to the March 15, 2019, Christchurch attacks and RNZ reports that Gun Control NZ is already petitioning parliament to expand these controls and add new ones.

They want a national firearm register, a requirement gun owners renew gun registration every three years, and gun prohibition expansion that would cover all semiautomatic firearms.

Australian navy pilots struck by lasers in South China Sea

RP from QRes#8455

May 28, 2019

Witness says Australian navy helicopter pilots were hit by lasers while exercising in the South China Sea, forcing them to land as a precaution.

Scholar Euan Graham, who was on board the Royal Australian Navy flagship HMAS Canberra on a voyage from Vietnam to Singapore, said in an account of the incident that the lasers had been pointed from passing fishing vessels while the Canberra was being trailed by a Chinese warship.

While bridge-to-bridge communications with the Chinese during the voyage were courteous, the Chinese requested the Australian warships notify them in advance of any corrections to their course. That was something the Australian navy was "not about to concede while exercising its high-seas freedoms," Graham wrote.

China maintains a robust maritime militia in the South China Sea composed of fishing vessels equipped to carry out missions just short of combat.

China claims the strategic waterway virtually in its entirety and is sensitive to all foreign naval action in the area, especially by the US and allies such as Australia.

Similar incidents involving lasers and the Chinese military have also been reported as far away as Djibouti, where the US and China have bases. Last year, the US complained to China after lasers were directed at aircraft in the Horn of Africa nation that resulted in minor injuries to two American pilots. China denied that its forces targeted the US military aircraft.

The constant presence of Chinese vessels shadowing foreign ships appeared to indicate that the Chinese fleet had grown large enough to allow it to have vessels lying in wait for just such orders.

Their trailing actions also appeared to show that China's over-the-horizon surveillance capability was also maturing, supported by technology based at points such as Fiery Cross Reef in the contested Spratly island group where China has built military installations and an airstrip atop coral reefs.

Boy who 'egged' Australian politician has donates $100K GoFundMe cash to Christchurch mosque shooting victims.

RP from QRes#8455

This whole story sounds like it was dreamt up in a leftist think-tank. A total set-up imho.

"Egg Boy has donated $99,922.36 to the victims of the Christchurch mosque shootings on March 15 which killed 51 people.

Teenager Will Connolly made headlines around the world after cracking a raw egg over controversial former politician Fraser Anning’s head.

The egging came after Mr Anning made victim-blaming comments in the wake of Christchurch mosque shootings.

Mr Connolly was arrested following the incident which also saw Mr Anning and his supporters retaliate, with one crowd member holding him on the ground in a chokehold.

This prompted the creation of a GoFundMe page to raise funds for his legal fees. However, Mr Connolly promised to donate the money to the victims.

“Finally!!! After a huge amount of red tape, $99,922.36 has today been transferred to the Christchurch Foundation and Victims Support,” he said on Instagram last night.

“For those of you who don’t know, there were two GoFundMe pages set up to help cover the cost of my legal fees and to ‘buy more eggs’.

“Gratefully, Gordon Legal acted pro-bono for me so I don’t have any legal fees.

“I decided to donate all monies to help provide some relief to the victims of the massacre … it wasn’t mine to keep.”"

Julian Assange moved to prison health ward as WikiLeaks reveal 'grave concerns' about well-being

WikiLeaks founder Julian Assange has been moved to the heath ward of Belmarsh prison.

On Wednesday night the company released a statement confirming the move, adding that they have "grave concerns" over the state of his health.

At the start of this month Mr Assange was jailed for 50 weeks for skipping bail in 2012.

"Mr Assange's heath had already significantly deteriorated after seven years in the Ecuadorian embassy, under conditions that were incompatible with basic human rights," the group said in a statement.

It added: "During the seven weeks in Belmarsh his health has continued to deteriorate and he has dramatically lost weight. The decision of prison authorities to move him to the health ward speaks for itself."

The Ministry of Justice has been contacted for comment.

The move came a day before Assange was due to appear via videolink for the latest hearing in his extradition case.

Assange is facing extradition to the US, accused of conspiring to break into a classified Pentagon computer and facing 17 charges under the Espionage Act.

Greg Barns, an Australian lawyer and WikiLeaks adviser who visited Assange in January, said that the time Assange was suffering chronic pain in one arm and needed dental work. Assange’s health continued to decline, he said.

A defence lawyer for Assange said on Tuesday that a Swedish court had rejected a request to postpone a planned hearing to rule on the detention in absentia as part of an ongoing investigation into alleged rape.

The Swedish prosecutor heading an investigation into the rape allegation against Assange, which he denies, this month filed a request with a local court for him to be detained with a hearing scheduled for June 3.

Swedish defence lawyer Per Samuelson told Reuters he had visited Assange in British custody on Friday after which he had sought to have the hearing postponed.

"One of the reasons is that Assange's health situation on Friday was such that it was not possible to conduct a normal conversation with him," Mr Samuelson said.

"I meant that it should be postponed until I had time to meet again and go through the issues in peace and quiet. I suggested no specific date and meant it should be postponed until everything was ready, but the district court has now decided that this won't happen."

Sweden reopened the rape investigation in early May. It was begun in 2010 but dropped in 2017 years after Assange took refuge in Ecuador's London embassy.

If the court order is granted, it would be the first step in a process to have Assange extradited from Britain.

The British courts will have to rule on the two extradition requests, with the home secretary having the final say on which one takes precedence.

US Marine killed in NT training accident

RP from QRes#8459

A 21-year-old decorated United States Marine has died, days after a military training accident at an Australian Defence Force facility in the Northern Territory.

Lance Corporal Hans Sandoval-Pereyra died on Wednesday after succumbing to injuries he received during a tactical vehicle accident on the weekend, a media release from the US Marines said.

He was involved in routine training at Mount Bundey Training Area, east of Darwin on Saturday when the accident occurred and was taken by helicopter to Royal Darwin Hospital, where he died.

One other Marine received minor injuries from the accident and was released from the hospital.

The training was described in the Marine Expeditionary Force media release as routine.

RP from QRes#8461

The Reserve Bank of Australia is expected to cut its policy rate next week due to falling growth and low inflation levels.

The RBA has maintained its policy rate at 1.5% since August 2016 and policy-makers previously seemed reluctant to make changes. However, constant weak inflation and a declining property market is forcing the bank to consider a cut.

Earlier this month, the RBA downgraded its growth predictions for the second time in six months. It forecasts that the economy will grow 2.6%

Australian navy helicopter pilots were reportedly targeted with laser beams from fishing boats in South China Sea

RP from QRes#8466

Australian navy pilots were targeted with laser beams during an exercise in the South China Sea, a security analyst who observed Australia's operations said.

Euan Graham, an Asian security expert, said that pilots told him they were repeatedly targeted by laser beams as they flew, and that helicopters had to be temporarily grounded as a precaution.

He said that Australia was followed by a Chinese warship and the attacks could be be Chinese boats, as China's "approach in the South China Sea is to try to make life difficult for foreign aircraft and warships there."

US military pilots were targeted with lasers in the East China Sea last year, according to multiple reports.

New Zealand removes any reference to Jesus from parliamentary prayer!

RP from QRes#8468

In the wake of the Christchurch mosque attack, we come to find out that New Zealand has removed references to Jesus from the parliamentary prayer, sparking outrage among the country’s Christian population.

Speaker of the House, Trevor Mallard, made the decision to drop references to Jesus in order to make the prayer “more inclusive” for all parliamentarians.

The Guardian reported: A reference to “almighty god” remains, but it is not a specific reference to a Christian god.

The protesters want Jesus’s name reinstated, and held signs reading “Dishonourable Judas Mallard”.

Around 1,000 people protested on the steps of parliament house in Wellington, arguing that New Zealand was a Christian nation and Mallard had no authority to axe Jesus’s name.

“He needs a good kick in his pants, and he needs to actually be removed because this is a Christian nation”, protester Rieki Teutscher told Radio NZ. “We don’t share his atheism.”

Another protester, Carmel Morgan, said Mallard should have consulted with New Zealanders or announced a referendum before changing the prayer.

“This is a land of democracy, this is a land of freedom, you know, we want to be a first world country… he took that choice away from us.”

Politicians such as Jacinda Ardern and Winston Peters have said it would have been judicious for the speaker to have consulted more widely before actioning the changes.

“Well the decision as to what should be changed should be made by parliamentarians and not the speaker – that’s our position, I don’t mind telling you publicly”, deputy prime minister Winston Peters told RNZ.

“If you’re going to make a change let’s have parliament decide – not one person.”

Mallard said he had consulted with parliamentarians and the majority had indicated they were in favour of a secular prayer.

The brethren in NZ need anon prayers more than ever it seems!

Australia military pilots were targeted by lasers aimed at them from fishing trawlers in the South China Sea during routine operations.

RP from QRes#8478

Euan Graham, an academic from the La Trobe University, who was on board the HMAS Canberrawrote of the incident. Graham said the Canberra, a helicopter landing ship, was followed by a Chinese warship at a distance during its deployment.

Don Rothwell, a maritime law expert at the Australian National University, described the use of lasers in a ‘pseudo-military context’ as a new development. He explained that lasers can potentially blind the pilots and hinder them from properly navigating the aircraft.

The lasers were aimed from fishing trawlers, which have been recruited by the Chinese navy to act as a militia force in the South China sea.

Rothwell said these were no ordinary fishing vessels, but China’s maritime ‘militia fishing boats’. He explained that their purpose was ‘only to disrupt’. “We have seen the deployment of the Chinese militia to swarm or enclose areas that are subject of Filipino occupation as part of the Philippines territorial claim in the South China Sea.”

The U.S. military had encountered similar incidents at the American airbase in Djibouti, in East Africa. In 2016, China built its military base, first in overseas, a few miles away from the American airbase, and had installed lasers there . Dana White, a Pentagon spokeswoman alleged in 2018 that two US military pilots, while landing their C-130 transport airplane at Camp Lemonnier, suffered minor eye damage from lasers hitting the cockpit."

New Mosquito eradication method

RP from QRes#8479

"We demonstrated that the efficacy of the transgenic fungi is so much better than the wild type that it justifies continued development," said Raymond St. Leger, a Distinguished University Professor of Entomology at UMD and co-author of the study.

The fungus is a naturally occurring pathogen that infects insects in the wild and kills them slowly. It has been used to control various pests for centuries. The scientists used a strain of the fungus that is specific to mosquitoes and engineered it to produce a toxin that kills mosquitoes more rapidly than they can breed. This transgenic fungus caused mosquito populations in their test site to collapse to unsustainable levels within two generations.

"You can think of the fungus as a hypodermic needle we use to deliver a potent insect-specific toxin into the mosquito," said St. Leger.

The toxin is an insecticide called Hybrid. It is derived from the venom of the Australian Blue Mountains funnel-web spider and has been approved by the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) for application directly on crops to control agricultural insect pests.

"Simply applying the transgenic fungus to a sheet that we hung on a wall in our study area caused the mosquito populations to crash within 45 days," Lovett said. "And it is as effective at killing insecticide-resistant mosquitoes as non-resistant ones."



Given the increase in mosquito borne dengue fever and other diseases occurring further south than ever before, something like this might prove a useful control method for the little fuckers

UN torture expert names Australia among countries that “ganged up” on Julian Assange

A United Nations expert has pointed an accusatory finger directly at Britain, Sweden and the United States for “ganging up” on WikiLeaks founder Julian Assange.

In a report condemning their actions, the UN torture expert also highlighted Australia’s inaction as a damaging force.

“In 20 years of work with victims of war, violence and political persecution I have never seen a group of democratic States ganging up to deliberately isolate, demonise and abuse a single individual for such a long time and with so little regard for human dignity and the rule of law,” said UN special rapporteur Nils Melzer.

He also noted Australia’s failure to assist. “Australia is a glaring absence in this case. They’re just not around, as if Assange was not an Australian citizen,” Mr Melzer told The Sydney Morning Herald. “That is not the correct way of dealing with that.”

A spokesman for the Department of Foreign Affairs and Trade adamantly denied the claims. “We reject any suggestion by the UN Special Rapporteur on Torture that the Australian Government is complicit in psychological torture or has shown a lack of consular support for Mr Assange”.

“The Special Rapporteur has not been in contact with the Australian Government to raise these concerns directly.”

The Department insists that consular officers from the Australian High Commission in London have already visited Mr Assange twice this year — on April 12 and May 17.

While DFAT are “confident that Mr Assange is being treated the same as other prisoners in Belmarsh”, a recent examination found alarming deteriorations in his mental and physical health, impacting his ability to front court.

Assange’s lawyer Gareth Pierce said the WikiLeaks founder was “far from well”, as he failed to appear yesterday via video link at Westminster Magistrates’ Court as expected.

The Australian computer programmer was arrested at London’s Ecuadorean embassy in April, after spending seven years holed up there to avoid charges against him. WikiLeaks said his health “significantly deteriorated” during this time, “under conditions that were incompatible with basic human rights.”

Still, Mr Melzer is convinced Julian Assange a victim of “psychological torture.”

“The evidence is overwhelming and clear,” he said. “Mr. Assange has been deliberately exposed, for a period of several years, to progressively severe forms of cruel, inhuman or degrading treatment or punishment, the cumulative effects of which can only be described as psychological torture.”

Mr Melzer said he had initially been sceptical about Mr. Assange’s case, turning down a request from Mr. Assange’s lawyers back in December to investigate. But he said that what he found after having accepted a second request from the lawyers in March, changed his mind.

“Wherever I delved into the case, I found a lot of dirty stuff,” he told The New York Times.

Following media reports of Assange’s ill health yesterday, the Australian Government has reportedly made further inquiries with Belmarsh Prison authorities as to Mr Assange’s current health situation.

A DFAT spokesman confirmed: “We will continue to visit Mr Assange in prison, monitor and advocate for his health, welfare and equitable treatment, and closely follow his legal proceedings.”

'Complete beat-up': Downer laughs off Trump's Russian probe conspiracy theory

Former foreign minister Alexander Downer has ridiculed the idea he was sent to spy on a junior Donald Trump campaign aide as part of an international conspiracy to kickstart the FBI's Russia probe.

The US President has effectively embraced the wider conspiracy theory, asking his Attorney-General William Barr to investigate how the Russia probe got started and told reporters that "I hope he looks at Australia" as well as Britain and Ukraine for their involvement.

Mr Downer called it "a complete beat-up" and said the US President likely called an investigation into the origins of the Russia probe because he saw suggestions of a conspiracy in American media.

Mr Downer famously met with Trump campaign staffer George Papadopoulos at a London wine bar in 2016, when Mr Papadopoulos said Russia had indicated to the campaign that it could help by releasing thousands of stolen emails that were damaging to rival Hillary Clinton.

Mr Downer reported the conversation back to Canberra via diplomatic cable. Canberra passed the information on to Washington and it reportedly contributed to the beginning of the FBI probe into potential collusion between the Trump team and Moscow, which then morphed into the inquiry by special counsel Robert Mueller.

Mr Trump swung onto the offensive in the wake of the Mueller report's release and with the request to investigate its origins, he appears to be endorsing a theory – being pushed by Mr Papadopoulos and in conservative US media including Fox News – that some US intelligence and FBI officials conspired with help from foreign partners to concoct the Russia allegations and undermine the Trump campaign and presidency.

Mr Downer, who was Australia's high commissioner to Britain when he met Mr Papadopoulos – who went on to spend 12 days in jail for lying to the FBI – laughed off the theory that he had been sent to spy on the junior campaign aide.

"The FBI and the State Department know that's not true … As if somebody would ring me up and say, 'Will you go and spy on some clown called Papadopoulos who's a volunteer from the Trump campaign?'

"Are you kidding … If you wanted to spy on the Trump campaign, wouldn't you spy on a main player … Steve Bannon or someone like that?"

Mr Downer said Mr Trump likely called the investigation because he'd seen the theory promoted in the media.

"People make these allegations. He sees the allegations and he wonders what that's all about. That's fair enough. I don't think there's any big deal there, particularly as there's nothing to find out," he said.

Mr Trump has claimed exoneration from the Mueller report and even called the probe "an attempted coup", though Democrats and Trump critics say the report has raised troubling issues about the campaign and administration.

Mr Downer avoided directly criticising Mr Trump, saying: "I'm not against him."

Mr Downer said the matter was "to do with American politics" and he was comfortable about that.

"They have to play their politics … He's obviously very good at politics because he became the President."

He added: "The more it's investigated, the more it'll be shown to be a complete beat-up. So they're welcome to investigate. I don't care."

He dismissed suggestions that the Barr investigation could smear Australia either way, saying it could be "handled with consummate ease" by the Morrison government.

Michael Fullilove, executive director of the Lowy Institute, said even accounting for Mr Trump's history of scepticism about traditional US alliances, it was "disturbing to see him try to drag the UK and Australia into America's fevered conspiracy politics".

"Australia is the United States' most reliable ally," he said. "We don't interfere in American elections and we don't deserve to be treated like this."

"Julian Assange is showing all the symptoms associated with prolonged exposure to psychological torture and should not be extradited to the US, according to a senior UN expert who visited him in prison.

Nils Melzer, UN’s special rapporteur on torture, is expected to make his appeal to the UK government on Friday. It comes after Assange, the co-founder of WikiLeaks, was said by his lawyers to be too ill to appear by video link for the latest court hearing of the case on Thursday.

Assange has been moved to the health ward of Belmarsh prison, London, where he has been serving a 50-week sentence for skipping bail while fighting extradition to the US. He is accused of violating the Espionage Act by publishing secret documents containing the names of confidential US military and diplomatic sources.

After meeting Assange earlier this month in the company of medical experts who examined him, Melzer will say on Friday that he fears the Australian’s human rights could be seriously violated if he is extradited to the US and will condemn what he describes as the “deliberate and concerted abuse inflicted for years” on him."


OP Anon's comments

MSM says nothing, we do nothing?

If this country/POTUS lets him die in a UK prison, then we are NO better than the DS we'd like to take down. If we are the news, then president Trump needs to hear from us. No media coverage = no change.

He was responsible for Trump getting a lot of votes since he started the red pill process for so many people. Would we even know so much about Hillary, etc without Assange? Do you climb over him on the way up and then dispose of him? That's our deep state, not us.

There's also the freedom of the press to consider. Even if he gave password advice, I think he's paid enough. He's now too ill to communicate well. He needs to be here, getting better medical treatment. And PARDONED for whatever they think he did. And time seems to be growing short.

Please, Pres Trump, don't let him die over there. He needs saving NOW.

Nestle Says Requirement to Report Use of Slave Labor Would Cost Consumers More Money

RP from QRes#8488

While the Free Thought Project often reports on the megacorp Nestle and their rampant abuse and exploitation of drinking water supplies across the nation, few are aware that the company has been found using slave labor. What’s more, as governments across the world attempt to crack down the use of slave labor by requiring companies to report on its use, Nestle is fighting it, saying that it will end up costing consumers at the register.

Late last month, Nestle issued a warning against proposed legislation that would require them to report on their efforts to weed out slavery within their company. The company says the cost of checking to see if they are forcing people to work against their will end up being passed on to the consumer.

As the Sydney Morning Herald reports, companies operating in Australia with an annual turnover of $100 million or more would be required to annually report on the risks of modern slavery within their business and the actions they’ve taken to address those risks under the federal government’s draft Modern Slavery Bill 2018.

Nestle owns over 2000 brands and operates in 189 countries and has a history of using slave labor to produce its products. Yet they are warning against the legislation that would have them report on issues related to human trafficking, slavery, sexual servitude and child labor within their businesses’ operation and supply chains.

In a senate committee last month, Nestle claimed that the reporting requirements to keep them from participating in slavery and human trafficking would add “cost and time” to its businesses and suppliers “which will need to be borne somewhere.”

“While we are of the view that the mandatory requirements are sensible, in practical terms this difference means that multinational companies will have to prepare bespoke statements for each country in which they are required to report,” Nestle’s submission said.

” … Not all suppliers may bear those costs themselves; some may pass them on to customers/consumers.”

As TFTP reported in 2016, Nestle became embroiled in controversy, as the company went public with the admission that slave labor had been found in the multinational company’s supply chain in Thailand. Nestle claimed at the time that they would promise to self police and rid themselves of this problem.

One would think that since they claimed to already be self-policing, that simply passing this information on to the Australian government would be an easy task. However, evidence of Nestle’s lack of follow through on self-regulation can be clearly seen in the Engel-Harkin (aka the Cocoa Protocol), in which it promised to self-regulate and ultimately end child slave labor in their supply chain — signed in 2001.

Federal election 2019: Minor cousins of Right propped up Coalition victory

The major parties on the right side of politics gained more than half a million primary votes at the May 18 election, despite the Coalition parties losing about 65,000 votes nationally.

Analysis by The Weekend Australian reveals that, although Scott Morrison has hailed the election result as a “miracle victory”, it was sealed with a flagging national primary vote that was boosted by preference flows from minor right parties, which benefited from an even worse performance by the major parties on the Left.

When compared with the 2016 election and allowing for population increases, the major parties on the Left, Labor and the Greens, fared even worse than the Coalition, losing almost 200,000 primary votes combined.

The Coalition’s primary vote losses, which were heaviest in Victoria and Western Australia, and the disappearance of Family First were more than offset by the gains made by Clive Palmer’s United Australia Party, Pauline Hanson’s One Nation and Fraser Anning’s Conservative National Party.

Even in Victoria, one of two states Labor hoped would provide the path to victory, the Left has gone backwards. Labor’s gain of almost 46,000 primary votes in Victoria was more than cancelled out by the Greens going backwards by more than 53,000 votes.

Victoria was easily the worst state for the Coalition, which on current counting has lost about 107,000 primary votes. But when the parties of the right are clumped together, their vote total is almost 25,000 higher than it was at the 2016 election.

In NSW and Queensland, the two mainland states that underpinned the Coalition’s win, its primary vote gains of 17,000 and 16,000 respectively were dwarfed by minor right party increases. In NSW, UAP was the big winner with more than 130,000 votes, while in Queensland, the Hanson and Palmer parties each picked up almost 100,000 more votes than they did in 2016.

In Western Australia, minor parties on the right were the only winners. One Nation (about 72,000) and UAP (about 28,000) picked up almost 100,000 primary votes between them at the expense of the Coalition and Labor and, to a lesser extent, the Greens and other micro parties and independents.

The South Australian result was very different from the other states, with the plunge in the vote won by the Nick Xenophon Team in 2016. The rebadged entity, Centre Alliance, is down more than 176,000 primary votes, with parties on the right picking up about 77,000, parties on the Left about 74,000 and 25,000 flowing to independents and micro parties.

Trump administration considered placing tariffs on Australia: report

The Trump administration considered placing tariffs on Australian imports last week, The New York Times reported Sunday.

According to several people familiar with the discussions, the administration decided against it amid fierce opposition from military officials and the State Department.

Some of Trump's aides reportedly suggested the tariffs in response to a spike in Australian aluminum entering the American market over the last year.

Those opposed to the plan told Trump it would alienate a top ally and could come at significant cost to the United States, The Times reported.

Trump said Sunday that relations with Australia are strong when asked about the Times report.

“The Australian situation is interesting. But the relationship is very strong. No, we’re doing a very, very special relationship with Australia," he told reporters.

Australia was exempted from a 25 percent tariff on imported steel and a 10 percent tariff on imported aluminum from many countries that Trump imposed last year.

Imposing tariffs on Australian goods would expand the countries the U.S. has ongoing trade disputes with.

Trump announced Thursday on Twitter that he would place a 5 percent tariff on Mexican imports starting June 10 “until such time as illegal migrants coming through Mexico, and into our Country, STOP.”

The administration has also imposed tariffs on Europe, Canada and China.

Two Australians’ viral anti-gun video sends stern warning to US politicians

An anti-gun campaign born from two Australians has sent shockwaves throughout the US as the extremely stark reality of what American students can expect to face throughout their schooling is detailed by an 11-year-old-girl.

In a video, released by March For Our Lives, the gun control group established in the wake of 2018’s shooting at Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School in Florida, a young girl, Kayleigh, instructs a group of adults in their workplace on how to survive in the event of an active shooter.

“If there was an active shooter, you would all be dead,” she tells the group of shocked and confused employees.

“When you talk out loud, the shooter can hear where you are and where you’re hiding.”

As some of the adults are moved to tears, Kayleigh continues by informing the group how to deal with an armed attacker, including tips like pushing chairs up against the doors, how to detect the shooter’s location, and even squatting on toilet seats so the attacker can’t see your feet.

The harrowing footage, titled “Generation Lockdown”, is part of a campaign from the Australian creative directors of McCann New York, Alex Little and Karsten Jurkschat.

Being from Australia, the two creatives struggled to understand active shooter drills in public schools across the US.

“We made sure every adult and politician in the country knew what their inaction on gun reform was doing to the next generation,” Mr Little and Mr Jurkschat say on their website.

Since its creation about a month ago, the now viral video has racked up more than 50 million views sending a distressing reminder of something Americans are becoming increasingly desensitised to.

According to Everytown for Gun Safety there were at least 103 incidents of gunfire on school grounds in 2018.

“There wasn’t a lot of gift-wrapping around this. It’s what kids in America learn in school. And it’s putting it in an interesting environment, which is an adult situation,” Mr Little told the ABC.

“Usually these secrets — these lockdowns — are kept in the classroom. And parents hear snatches of what kids are learning in school, but they don’t really hear details.”

The video ends with Kayleigh singing a rhyme a teacher had taught her to make it easier to remember what to do in the event of an armed-attacker.

“Lockdown, lockdown, let’s all hide. Lock the doors and stay inside. Crouch on down. Don’t make a sound. And don’t cry or you’ll be found.”

The PSA speaks to an audience unaware of what is going on in American schools, a situation ignored by politicians, unknown to parents but becoming ingrained into students.

“Kids are politically powerless, but this film gives them a massive voice,” Mr Little said.

“Our goal is to keep trying to shift that needle, to keep trying to get Americans, more people, more politicians to kind of realise that this is not a normal thing for kids to learn,” Mr Jurkschat added.

Kayleigh practices lockdown drills at schools along with 95 per cent of public school children in the United States.

Sanctions…I mean TARIFFS coming to Australia?

After all, Australia is a "rogue state."

Australia has committed "acts of war" against a supposed ally, the United States.

The people of Australia have been oblivious, but the despot government of Australia knew exactly what they were doing. The despot government of Australia has known what it was doing for a long, long time.

The child trafficking alone condoned and committed by Australian officials would be enough to send every such official straight to Hell.

How do you deal with a rogue government?

Fortunately the Plan requires that the world come together, not fall apart in war. And so we're going to be lucky that tariffs is all we get.

There's just no way that it can be business as usual with Australia though. Everything has to change. The people of Australia have to know the truth about their government. The government officials who 'knowingly' participated have to be punished. And until Australia comes right, Australia IS A ROGUE STATE. Sanctions coming?

Wikileaks founder Julian Assange will not be extradited to Sweden in suspected rape case

A Swedish court on Monday rejected a request from prosecutors for WikiLeaks founder Julian Assange to be detained in absentia over a 2010 rape allegation.

Assange, an Australian national, is currently serving a 50-week sentence in Britain for skipping bail after spending seven years holed up in the Ecuadorean embassy in London to avoid extradition to Sweden. He denies the rape accusation.

The ruling by the Uppsala District Court doesn't mean the preliminary rape investigation must be abandoned, only that Assange won't be extradited to Sweden for now.

Assange's defence lawyer in Sweden, Per E Samuelsson, said his client would "be happy, we are happy" to learn he won't be extradited to Sweden.

The United States has already requested Assange's extradition on conspiracy charges.

If Britain were to grant that request before Sweden makes its own claim, Assange will be sent to the United States.

Another factor pushing the Swedish prosecutor to act quickly is that the statute of limitations on the alleged rape runs out in August 2020.

However, Mr Samuelson argued that Assange's imprisonment in Britain meant there was no flight risk.

"He is in prison for half a year at least, and he is detained on behalf of the United States. So there is no point detaining him in Sweden, too," Mr Samuelson said.

Swedish prosecutors dropped their rape investigation in 2017 but reopened it after Ecuador rescinded its grant of asylum to Assange in April, allowing British police to arrest him.

Prosecutor Eva-Marie Persson said in a statement that she will issue a European Investigation Order in order to interview Assange.

"No date has been set yet. We will constantly review the state of the investigation," she said.

"The [rape] investigation continues with interviews in Sweden."

The US wants Assange extradited on charges relating to the public release by Wikileaks of a cache of secret documents, including assessments of foreign leaders, wars and security matters.

On May 23, US authorities widened the scope of criminal charges against him to include espionage.

Britain's interior minister will have the final say on whether to extradite Assange to Sweden, the United States or neither.

Australian government, spy chiefs secretly urge UK to ban Huawei

The Australian government and senior intelligence officials have urged Britain to ban Chinese technology giant Huawei from a role in building new ultra-fast mobile networks, arguing the western alliance of intelligence-sharing partners should have a consistent position.

Multiple well-placed sources confirmed Australian officials have taken action on several fronts to impress on their British counterparts the drawbacks of having risky telecommunications vendors providing equipment for 5G networks that will power critical future technologies.

The sources made it clear that the representations were made acknowledging that the decision was entirely Britain's to make.

High Commissioner to London George Brandis appeared last month before Britain's high-powered and secretive Intelligence and Security Committee of Parliament. Sources familiar with the private meeting said he made the case that it was better for the so-called "Five Eyes" group of intelligence sharing nations to adopt a united front.

Other senior intelligence officials have, during trips to Britain, had high-level meetings with counterparts where Australia's position has been clearly put.

Of the Five Eyes nations - Australia, the United States, Britain, Canada and New Zealand - Australia was the first to put an effective ban on Huawei 5G involvement in August, which will power data-hungry future technologies such as artificial intelligence and driverless cars.

Senior figures including Office of National Intelligence deputy head Andrew Shearer and recently retired Australian Cyber Security Centre head Alastair MacGibbon have discussed the issue repeatedly with British counterparts in the past year, sources said.

The risks in telecommunications have been described as a "top tier" subject of security discussions.

Mr Brandis, who was previously the attorney-general, presented Australia's position to the influential British parliamentary committee alongside an official from electronic spy agency, the Australian Signals Directorate.

Not long after the appearance, the chairman of the committee, Conservative MP Dominic Grieve, wrote an opinion article in The Telegraph warning that Australia likely shared the concerns of the US about the security of shared intelligence if Britain were to use Huawei equipment.

An Australian government spokesman said the rules around the 5G build was "a sovereign decision for the UK, as it was for Australia".

Officials have also been trying to understand the British position, so that Australia can weigh up any effects that a British 5G network with Chinese equipment would have on Australia.

Telecommunications industry sources believe the moves from the Australian agencies amount to trying to strong-arm the British government, with British mobile providers particularly frustrated by the actions of the Australian representatives as a ban could amount to "billions of dollars" in extra costs for network roll outs.

They said there had been multiple visits to Britain by Mr Shearer in particular, a former national security adviser to John Howard and Tony Abbott, who is regarded as hawkish on China.

"The UK government did not want them [Britain] to be a 5G laggard," one telco source said, explaining British mobile providers had warned the government that without Huawei there could be delays and rising costs.

However, sources with close knowledge of the discussions said Australia had been "careful not to affront anyone".

"We've made representations to the UK on why our stance was taken … it's been respectful. It's a bit like a fight at a family lunch where people might go home sore but they quickly realise blood is thicker than water," one source said.

Another said: "Australia feels that it's in its interests that its close partners are aligned on this issue."

A third source dismissed any suggestion Australia was lobbying on the issue and said this was a "sovereign" decision for Britain.

The diplomatically sensitive campaign comes at a time when Britain is going through political upheaval with Prime Minister Theresa May resigning over the Brexit stalemate.

Britain is to decide if it will allow limited use of Huawei equipment, though a leak in April revealed the government was considering allowing the company to work on "non-core" areas of its network.

The US has a broad ban on Huawei and has pressured on Britain to follow suit. Secretary of State Mike Pompeo warned last month that the US might not be able to share all of its intelligence with Britain if it couldn't trust its network, adding that "this is just what China wants - to divide western alliances".

US President Donald Trump is expected to issue a similar warning this week when he visits Britain.

Sanctions work.

Australia must redeem itself. If Australia isn't ready to do so now, then Australia should be 'encouraged.'

Rogue governments receive economic sanctions to cut the government's illegal activities and put pressures on the people to demand change without a bullet being fired.

Cardinal George Pell's appeal begins TOMORROW, Wednesday 5 June 2019, 9:30am (Australian Eastern Standard Time)

George Pell appeal: What you need to know

George Pell’s case will return to court tomorrow as the disgraced cardinal appeals his conviction for sexually abusing two Melbourne choirboys.

The cardinal was found guilty in December of raping one choirboy and molesting another after mass in the sacristy of St Patrick’s Cathedral in 1996.

Pell, who was archbishop of Melbourne at the time, molested the first boy again about a month later.

The conviction was made public in February after a court-imposed gag order was lifted and Pell was sentenced to six years in jail – with a minimum of three years and eight months - by County Court Chief Judge Peter Kidd in March.

Pell’s team indicated last week they would not seek a reduced sentence if the appeal fails.


The appeal will take place in the Supreme Court in Melbourne tomorrow and Thursday from 9.30am.

Pell’s lawyers will first seek leave to appeal and if granted the case will be heard over the two days.

The case will be heard by the Chief Justice of the Supreme Court of Victoria Justice Anne Ferguson, President of the Court of Appeal Justice Chris Maxwell and Justice Mark Weinberg.

The appeal is being heard in the Supreme Court instead of the Court of Appeal to cater for intense interest in the case.

The case can be reported on and a live stream will be also hosted on the Supreme Court’s website.


Pell’s legal team cited three reasons for its appeal.

Their first claim is that the jury reached “unreasonable” verdicts based on the evidence.

“The verdicts are unreasonable and cannot be supported having regard to the evidence because on the whole of the evidence, including unchallenged exculpatory evidence from more than 20 Crown witnesses, it was not open to the jury to be satisfied beyond reasonable doubt on the word of the Complainant alone,” Pell’s team said in announcing its appeal.

Secondly, the defence says Judge Kidd erred by not allowing a 19-minute video reconstruction to be played to the jury which claimed to show where people would have been in the cathedral at the time of the abuse.

Judge Kidd had ruled the video was based on speculation and as new evidence, it could not be used during a closing address.

The final claim for appeal is that Pell was not arraigned in front of the jury in what was a “fundamental irregularity in the trial process”.

The video and arraignment arguments are technicalities and could see a retrial if they are upheld.

If the “unreasonable verdict” claim is upheld, Pell’s conviction would likely be overturned and he would be released from custody.


Pell has been in custody since February and it is not yet known if he will attend the appeal in person.

He was free when the appeal was lodged and had requested to be in court for the appeal hearing.

Now that he is behind bars, Pell may follow proceedings via video link.


We may not know the outcome of the appeal over the next two days.

The judges have the option to reserve their decision, the reasons for it, or both.

So no matter the verdict and given the public scrutiny on the decision, it may not be made public for weeks or months to come.

Four dead in Darwin shooting - possible FF?

"Four men have been killed and a woman has been wounded after a gunman opened fire with a pump action shotgun in five different locations in Darwin.

The 45-year-old suspected gunman, who was on parole, was arrested after being on the run for about an hour following the shootings in and around a hotel in Darwin's CBD on Tuesday.

He was arrested at the busy Stuart Highway and McMinn Street intersection near where the shootings occurred, with television footage showing him on the ground after being dragged from under his white dual cab ute, kicking his legs at officers from NT Police's Territory Response Group.

The incident started with reports of a man firing shots at Finnis St at about 5.50pm just outside the Darwin CBD, with the four deaths occurring at the nearby Buffalo Club, Gardens Hill Crescent, the Palms Motel and Jolly Street.

He also tried to enter the Peter McCauley Centre police station to possibly hand himself in, then contacted a duty superintendent who did a "magnificent job in negotiating with him" before the arrest, Police Commissioner Reece Kershaw told reporters.

The alleged shooter is an outlaw motorcycle gang member, well known to police with a criminal history, and the incident is not believed to be terror-related.

Mr Kershaw said he was was released from prison on parole in January after serving at least a year, was wearing an electronic monitoring bracelet, and had acted alone on Tuesday."

Catholic schoolgirls are being taught that God is gender-neutral and banned from using the words 'Lord', 'Father' and 'Son' in prayers.

A number of elite Catholic schools in Brisbane are making moves to teach their students to use inclusive language when referring to God.

Top schools including All Hallows, Stuartholme, Loreto College and Stuartholme School are leading a push towards a feminist interpretation of the Christian Bible.

Students at Stuartholme School in Brisbane's inner-city, which charges upwards of $40,000 a year, are taught to use the word 'Godself' instead of 'himself'.

As we believe God is neither male or female, Stuartholme tries to use gender-neutral terms in prayers … so that our community deepens their understanding of who God is for them, how God reveals Godself through creation, our relationships with others and the person of Jesus,' a spokeswoman told The Sunday Mail.

Loreto College in Coorparoo has taken the word 'Lord' from their prayers as it is a 'male term'.

The school's principal Kim Wickham said prayers written for use within the college didn't assign God a gender.

Australia-Japan-United States Defense Ministers Meeting Joint Press Statement

RP from QRes#8498

Australian Minister for Defence Linda Reynolds, Japanese Minister of Defense Takeshi Iwaya, and U.S.Acting Secretary of Defense Patrick Shanahan, convened a trilateral defense ministerial meeting in Singapore on June 1 on the margins of the 18th International Institute for Strategic Studies (IISS) Asia Security Summit (2019 Shangri-La Dialogue). The ministers were united in their shared commitment to do more together in support of security, stability, and prosperity in the Indo-Pacific region. This was the eighth meeting among the three nations’ defense leaders.

Minister Iwaya and Acting Secretary Shanahan congratulated Minister Reynolds on her appointment to Minister for Defence following Australia’s recent elections. The ministers affirmed their shared vision for an Indo-Pacific region that is open, inclusive, rules based and respectful of sovereignty, where disputes are resolved peacefully and free of coercion. The ministers recognized the importance of supporting Association of South East Asian Nations-led regional architecture and their support for ASEAN centrality which has played an instrumental role in establishing norms of behavior and habits of cooperation in the region. The Australian and Japanese ministers welcomed the United States Indo-Pacific Strategy Report announced by Acting Secretary Shanahan. The ministers agreed to continue to closely coordinate support to the region to maximize the benefits of their national and combined engagement activities in the region in a transparent, efficient and effective manner under their shared strategic vision.

The ministers underscored the importance of the international community’s ongoing commitment to achieving North Korea’s abandonment of all of its weapons of mass destruction, ballistic missiles, and related programs and facilities in a complete, verifiable, and irreversible manner in accordance with relevant United Nations Security Council resolutions (UNSCRs). The ministers welcomed the United States’ and Republic of Korea’s diplomatic efforts to achieve the final, fully verified denuclearization of North Korea and called on North Korea to return to negotiations with the United States toward this goal. They confirmed that while a diplomatic path to peace on the Korean Peninsula exists, North Korea remains an extraordinary threat, exemplified by its recent missile launches, that requires continued vigilance. They agreed to continue to fully enforce all relevant United Nations Security Council resolutions. The ministers welcomed and reaffirmed their commitment to sustained international cooperation to deter, disrupt, and ultimately eliminate illicit activities, such as illegal ship-to-ship transfers.

The ministers expressed strong opposition to the use of any coercive unilateral actions that seek to alter the status quo or increase tensions in the East China Sea. They also expressed their intention to remain in close contact on the security situation in that area with a view to deter such actions.

The ministers discussed the importance of adherence to international law and their shared commitment to upholding freedom of navigation and overflight in the South China Sea. The ministers remained seriously concerned about any action including militarization of disputed features in the South China Sea that are destabilizing or dangerous. They emphasized the importance of the peaceful resolution of conflict in accordance with the United Nations Convention on the Law of the Sea (UNCLOS), and expressed strong opposition to the use of force or coercion to alter the status quo; calling instead for all countries in the region to take meaningful steps to ease tension and build trust. All sides called for the Code of Conduct for the South China Sea to be consistent with existing international law, as reflected in UNCLOS; to not prejudice the interests of third parties or the rights of all states under international law; to reinforce existing inclusive regional architecture; and to strengthen parties’ commitments to cease actions that would complicate or escalate disputes.

The ministers underscored their commitment to work with their Pacific partners to support a Pacific region that is prosperous, secure and respects sovereignty. The ministers welcomed and acknowledged the significance of each state’s military-to-military activities, particularly when those activities contributed to whole of government engagement with the Pacific.

The ministers agreed on a Strategic Action Agenda (SAA) that articulates their shared long-term vision for trilateral cooperation in the Indo-Pacific region. They affirmed the SAA would enable their respective defense organizations to plan and implement enhanced trilateral defense cooperative activities.

The ministers underscored the close defense relationship between the three countries, and agreed to do more to coordinate their respective regional defense engagement activities, such as joint exercises and training and capacity building.

‘Record Number’ of Migrant Boats in English Channel, ‘Home Office Needs to Get a Grip’

RP from QRes#8499

The number of boats transporting illegal migrants to Britain appears to have hit a daily record, with HM Coastguard reporting it has assisted with 13 “incidents” off the Kent coast and a dinghy sighted off East Sussex.

The Kent incidents involved nine boats carrying dozens of migrants, according to Sky News — prompting Charlie Elphicke, MP for the Dover and Deal constituency on the frontline of the crisis, to admonish the authorities.

“If confirmed this would be a record number of boats arriving in a single day. This crisis was meant to have been dealt with at Christmas, yet numbers continue to rise,” he tweeted, in reference to Home Secretary and Tory leadership hopeful Sajid Javid having declared already “major incident” in the Channel as the number of boats were beginning to surge over the festive period.

“It looks set to surge to record levels through the Summer. The Home Office needs to get a grip on this crisis,” Elphicke added.

The MP warned that the Channel crisis was “about much more than simply border security”, noting that the “the exploitation of vulnerable people by criminal trafficking gangs” and the inherent dangerousness of the voyages were also concerns.

He reiterated the urgent need for the British and French authorities to crack down on the people-smugglers to avert “a tragedy in the middle of the English Channel resulting in loss of life”.

Australia managed to avert a similar crisis in the Pacific with its Operation Sovereign Borders policy, which deterred migrants from embarking on journeys in the first place by making it clear that anyone reaching their country by sea would either be turned back or, if found to be genuine refugees, resettled in another safe country.

While the boat migrants crisis has concentrated the minds of politicians and commentators on illegal migration into Britain, the hundreds of people involved make up a relatively small proportion of clandestine entrants — with tens of thousands still using more tried and true methods of breaking into lorries, ferries, or the Channel Tunnel in order to make their crossing.

Unlike the Australians, the British are able to deport very few illegal migrants who do make it to British soil or territorial waters, despite France — where most come from — being a safe country, thanks to onerous EU asylum regulations.

Former bank director calls for Sir John Key to be forced to resign from ANZ

RP from QRes#8499

A former top bank director has reportedly called for former Prime Minister Sir John Key to resign "or be removed" as chairman of ANZ following an incident that saw it censured by the Reserve Bank.

In a letter to Reserve Bank governor Adrian Orr, Kerry McDonald, the chairman of BNZ for 12 years until 2008, said he was "amazed" at the limited penalty imposed on the bank, Stuff reported.

McDonald also took aim at several others at ANZ – including chief executive David Hisco – saying they should resign.

The Reserve Bank revoked ANZ Bank New Zealand's accreditation to model its own operational risk capital requirement due to a "persistent failure" in its controls and attestation process.

The decision means ANZ is now required to use the standardised approach for calculating appropriate operational risk capital. From March 2019, this will increase its minimum capital held for operational risk by around 60 per cent, to $760 million.

According to the Reserve Bank, ANZ's failure to use an approved model was revealed after encouraging ANZ to review its attestation and assess its compliance with capital regulations.

A spokesperson for ANZ said: "ANZ New Zealand does not believe there is a systemic failure in its controls and attestation processes.

"While isolated, and with no impact on customers or the operation of the bank, ANZ New Zealand is disappointed this error occurred.

"Mr McDonald is welcome to discuss the issue with us at any time."

Sir John Key was named chairman of ANZ Bank's local arm in October 2017 and began his role in early 2018.

So much for climate change kek


Is the Southern Ocean getting greener?

RP from QRes#8506


The Southern Ocean is a key player in regulating the planet's biogeochemistry, productivity, and climate. Ocean color data from two NASA satellites show statistically significant increases in the concentration of chlorophyll in all sectors of the Southern Ocean, particularly in the Sub?Antarctic Zone and Permanently Open Ocean Zone. The smallest changes were observed in the Atlantic and Pacific sectors of the Sub?Tropical Zone. These trends seem accentuated by higher chlorophyll concentrations during the austral winter. Increases in the annual and wintertime chlorophyll concentrations can have implications for the Southern Ocean biological pump and ocean productivity and higher trophic levels.

Plain Language Summary

The Southern Ocean is getting greener because the amount of marine plants (phytoplankton) has been increasing in the last 21 years. These changes appear to be happening faster during the winter, which suggests that the growing season is getting longer. This is important because the Southern Ocean has a big role in the biology and chemistry of the oceans, and in regulating the Earth's climate. This work was done using 21 years of data from two NASA satellites.


Looks like it blooming in plankton … must be all the carbon dioxide/monoxide in the air like most plant life needs to thrive. kek.

Exposing The Lawlessness Of Assange's 'Slow Assassination'

With the news that Julian Assange is “wasting away” in Belmarsh prison hospital, and with UN rapporteur Professor Nils Melzer’s report detailing how this happens, I’m once again drawn towards the lawlessness that all “authorities” involved in his case have been displaying, and with impunity. They all apparently think they are literally above the law. Their own laws.

But they can’t be, nowhere, not above their respective national laws nor the international ones their countries have signed up to. They can’t, because that would instantly make any and all laws meaningless. So you tell me where we find ourselves today.

There’s this paragraph in an article by Jonathan Cook entitled Abuses Show Assange Case Was Never About Law, which lists “17 glaring anomalies in Assange’s legal troubles”, that sums it all up pretty perfectly:

Australia not only refused Assange, a citizen, any help during his long ordeal, but prime minister Julia Gillard even threatened to strip Assange of his citizenship, until it was pointed out that it would be illegal for Australia to do so.

See, Cook is already skipping a step there. Gillard didn’t take Assange’s citizenship away, because that is against Australian law, but it’s just as much against Australian law for a government to let one of its citizens rot in some kind of hell. Still, they did let him rot, but as an Australian citizen. At that point, what difference does anything make anymore?

This is a pattern that runs through the entire Assange “file”, and it does so to pretty astonishing levels. Where you’re forced to think that the countries involved effectively have no laws, and no courts, because if they did, the actions by their governments would surely be whistled back by parliaments or judges or someone, anyone. They’re all essentially lawless.

There are 5 principal countries involved in the case (that doesn’t absolve any other country from its own responsibility for speaking out when international laws are broken). In alphabetical order, they are Australia, Ecuador, Sweden, the UK and the US. We can go through them in that order.

Malaysian PM Says No Evidence Russia Shot Down MH17

"Australia's prime state run news service ABC News noted the Malaysian PM's speech has sent shock waves through the region as it questioned everything Australia's own leaders have said. "From the very beginning we see too much politics in it," Mahathir said in reference to the official Dutch-led investigation."

"The Malaysian PM further went so far as to point to Ukrainian pro-government forces as being prime suspects: “It could be by the rebels in Ukraine; it could be Ukrainian government because they too have the same missile,” he said."

They’ve Stolen Our Future!

RP from QRes#8509

It’s time to have a serious conversation. I know we’ve been having it, but maybe there’s another glove hidden beneath the one we’ve already taken off.

Put bluntly, there doesn’t seem to be any hope of avoiding a collapse of civilization. The forces of the Business-As-Usual crowd are just too strong, the narrative machine too honed, the interests too entrenched to allow any sort of meaningful course correction at this time.

But is that the case?

Writing about the outcomes of the recent Australian elections which saw a pro-business, conservative government elected, Australian based reader-member ezlxq1949 said:

“They’ve stolen our future!”

That was the wail of the 11-y.o. daughter of a Greens candidate who cried herself to sleep the night after the astonishing election results came in. It couldn’t be worse; the public have sold themselves into almost complete captivity to the neoliberal élites called the Liberal Party. (Liberal = Conservative. Go figure.) It was supposed to have been a climate change election but became a jobs ‘n growth election.

Mind you, it wouldn’t have been much better if the opposition Labor Party had won; they’ve moved so far to the right that like the US we really have only one party with two heads. For instance, Labor would not commit to stopping the monster Adani coal mine.

So it’s goodbye to:

the ABC (the excellent government broadcaster which has the gall and temerity to criticise the government of the day; the government badly wants to get even)

renewable energy (fossil fools rule ok)

the Great Barrier Reef (sliced and diced to let coal ships cross it)

our river systems (suck them dry, privatise the water, send the profits to the Cayman Islands — as is already happening)

the Great Artesian Basin (world’s largest and deepest, to be contaminated by coal mines and fracking)

public services (cut back yet again to create a damaging government budget surplus)

public health (to be Americanised)

public education (to be privatised; maybe high schools this time)

the Great Australian Bight (a pristine area which may have oil under it; damn the pollution, full greed ahead)

southern ocean fish stocks (they’ll let the supertrawlers in now).

The environment is completely expendable. All resources are permanently abundant and all will be fed into the growth machine. Climate change is NOT HAPPENING. It’s fake, right? Bah. Eat, drink and be merry, for tomorrow we fry.

There’s one ray of hope. Steve Keen predicts a severe recession, Depression really, within 6 months to a year from now. Our economy is indeed wobbling already. This will happen on the Liberals’ watch and they will be blamed for mismanaging the economy. This isn’t supposed to happen. Only Labor does that. Only Labor mismanages the economy. That’s what the Murdoch press drums into our heads. The Libs will panic. The Murdoch press won’t know what to say. Maybe this will shake up people’s belief and confidence in mainstream economics.

I’m not sleeping well at the moment. I wonder why.

Assange won’t face charges over role in devastating CIA leak

RP from QRes#8509

The decision surprised national security experts and some former officials, given prosecutors’ recent decision to go after the WikiLeaks founder on Espionage Act charges.

The Justice Department has decided not to charge Julian Assange for his role in exposing some of the CIA’s most secret spying tools, according to a U.S. official and two other people familiar with the case.

It’s a move that has surprised national security experts and some former officials, given prosecutors’ recent decision to aggressively go after the WikiLeaks founder on more controversial Espionage Act charges that some legal experts said would not hold up in court. The decision also means that Assange will not face punishment for publishing one of the CIA’s most potent arsenals of digital code used to hack devices, dubbed Vault 7. The leak — one of the most devastating in CIA history — not only essentially rendered those tools useless for the CIA, it gave foreign spies and rogue hackers access to them.

Prosecutors were stymied by several factors.

First, the government is facing a ticking clock in its efforts to extradite Assange to the United States from the United Kingdom, where he is being held. Extradition laws require the U.S. to bring any additional charges against Assange within 60 days of the first indictment, which prosecutors filed in March, accusing Assange of helping former Army intelligence analyst Chelsea Manning hack into military computers.

Second, prosecutors were worried about the sensitivity of the Vault 7 materials, according to an official familiar with the deliberations over whether to charge Assange. Broaching such a classified subject in court risks exposing even more CIA secrets, legal experts said. The CIA has never officially confirmed the authenticity of the leaked documents, even though analysts widely believe them to be authentic.

“There is no question that there are leak cases that can’t be prosecuted against the leaker or the leakee because the information is so sensitive that, for your proof at trial, you would have to confirm it is authentic,” said Mary McCord, who was acting assistant attorney general for national security at the Justice Department until 2017. “So the irony, often, is that the higher the classification of the leaked material, the harder it is to prosecute.”

So instead, the Justice Department will go after Assange on the one count for allegedly assisting Manning and the 17-count Espionage Act indictment. There are no plans to bring any additional indictments prior to his extradition.

Trump Administration Considered Tariffs on Australia

RP from QRes#8513

WASHINGTON — The Trump administration considered imposing tariffs on imports from Australia last week, but decided against the move amid fierce opposition from military officials and the State Department, according to several people familiar with the discussions.

Some of President Trump’s top trade advisers had urged the tariffs as a response to a surge of Australian aluminum flowing onto the American market over the past year. But officials at the Defense and State Departments told Mr. Trump the move would alienate a top ally and could come at significant cost to the United States.

The administration ultimately agreed not to take any action, at least temporarily.

The measure would open yet another front in a global trade war that has pitted the United States against allies like Canada, Mexico, Europe and Japan, and deepened divisions with countries like China. It would also be the end of a reprieve for the only country to be fully exempted from the start from steel and aluminum tariffs that Mr. Trump imposed last year.

Three massive Chinese warships made a showy arrival in Sydney Harbour this morning ahead of a four-day stopover in the city.

The ships, which are carrying around 700 sailors, docked at Garden Island navy base after requesting safe harbour from Australia, according to The Australian.

In a detail that has left some people concerned, the visit from the warships comes one day before the 30-year anniversary of the Tiananmen Square massacre when Chinese troops opened fire on protesters, resulting in 241 deaths."

‘I would not stand in the way of Assange's extradition’ – UK Foreign Secretary Hunt

British Foreign Secretary Jeremy Hunt, who is also vying to become prime minister, said he would not hamper Julian Assange's extradition to the US. Charges against the WikiLeaks founder carry up to 175 years in prison.

Washington wants Assange prosecuted under the Espionage Act for his role in publishing the classified documents released by whistleblower Chelsea Manning and revealing the high civilian death toll from US airstrikes among other things.

“Well, we would have to follow our own legal processes, just as the US has to follow its own legal processes,” Hunt told Face the Nation on Sunday. “But would I want to stand in the way of Julian Assange facing justice? No, I would not.”

Since Assange is “someone who is alleged to have committed some very serious crimes,” Hunt added, “it is absolutely right that he faces justice.” The foreign secretary also said that the journalist's “crimes” are “alleged to have led to people's deaths,” yet it was unclear what he meant exactly. During the Manning process, the investigators did not establish if the leak actually resulted in any deaths or put lives at risk.

YouTube pushes children’s videos to pedophiles through content recommendation engine

A mom in Brazil became concerned as she watched the viewing numbers on innocent backyard clip her daughter posted to YouTube suddenly climb hundreds of thousands of views. The child posted a video of herself and a friend playing in the family pool. YouTube’s recommendation engine had been suggesting the video as recommended content to viewers who’d just watched other videos that contained sexually oriented video content. YouTube’s AI sexualized her kid and pushed her image to pedophiles. This happens a lot, apparently.

“YouTube’s algorithm has been curating home movies of unwitting families into a catalog of semi-nude kids,” tweeted Max Fisher at the New York Times.

“YT often plays the videos after users watch softcore porn, building an audience of millions for what experts call child sexual exploitation.”

“I asked YouTube— why not just turn off recommendations on videos of kids? Your system can already identify videos of kids automatically,” says Fisher.

“The recommendation algorithm is driving this whole child exploitation phenomenon. Switching it off would solve the problem and keep kids safe.”

YouTube’s CEO is a woman, Susan Wojcicki.

From Max Fisher and Amanda Taub at the New York Times:

YouTube’s automated recommendation system — which drives most of the platform’s billions of views by suggesting what users should watch next — had begun showing the video to users who watched other videos of prepubescent, partially clothed children, a team of researchers has found.

YouTube had curated the videos from across its archives, at times plucking out the otherwise innocuous home movies of unwitting families, the researchers say. In many cases, its algorithm referred users to the videos after they watched sexually themed content.

The result was a catalog of videos that experts say sexualizes children.

Aussie Feds Raid News Corp Journalist's Home After Government Spying Exposé

Australian federal police officers are raiding the home of News Corp Australia journalist Annika Smethurst over an April, 2018 story accusing the government of radical new espionage powers allowing the Australian Signals Directorate (ASD) to monitor citizens for the first time, according to the Daily Telegraph (via the Herald Sun).

Ms Smethurst, the political editor for News Corp Sunday titles includingThe Sunday Telegraph, was at home preparing to leave for work this morning when several Australian Federal Police officers arrived with a warrant from an ACT magistrate giving them authority to search her home, computer and mobile phone.

Ms Smethurst complied with the warrant and is presently waiting for the raid to be completed. She has declined to answer questions apart from confirming her identity. -Herald Sun

Smethurst's article revealed that the emails, bank accounts and text messages of Australian citizens could be secretly accessed by government spies without a trace under the proposal, as long as the Defense and Home Affairs ministers approved the plan.

The raid comes three weeks after the federal election returned the Morrison government to power, leaving Home Affairs minister Peter Dutton at the helm.

Ms Smethurst’s original story included images of top-secret letters between the secretary of Home Affairs, Mike Pezzullo, and his counterpart in Defence, Greg Moriarty, outlining a plan to potentially allow government hackers to “proactively disrupt and covertly remove” onshore cyber threats by “hacking into critical infrastructure.” -Herald Sun

Current Australian law prohibits the ASD from spying on citizens - a power left to the Australian Federal Police (AFP) and the Australian Security Intelligence Organization, the country's domestic spy agency.

Smethhurt revealed that Dutton and former Defense Minister Marise Payne had reviewed the proposal, however it had not moved beyond that stage to be formally presented to the government.

Scott Morrison meets Queen, business leaders in London

London: Scott Morrison has held private talks on trade, politics and banking on his maiden trip to Britain as Prime Minister – and also found time to meet the Queen and give her a book about a horse.

Morrison and his wife Jenny were granted an official audience with the Queen at Buckingham Palace on Tuesday, and on the advice of John Howard brought a gift: Winx: The Official Biography by former The Age journalist Andrew Rule.

Howard advised that it would be well received: the Queen has a particular interest in Winx, even beyond her well-known fascination with all things equestrian.

The Prime Minister also visited nearby Clarence House to meet Prince Charles, who is taking an increasing role in the most senior work of the monarch in preparation for when he inherits the crown. Under royal protocol the content of their discussions is kept private.

Former attorney-general George Brandis, who is now Australia's High Commissioner in London, said on Tuesday he had been “teased” by members of the royal family – as well as British politicians - “about the frequency with which there was a turnover of prime ministers in Australia”.

He also said he was now happy to assure them the new Australian government had a clear and stable majority “and the prime minister has absolute and commanding authority in the government party room”.

Morrison arrived in London on Tuesday morning, local time, after a 26-hour flight from the Solomon Islands.

He gave a lunchtime speech to the Australia-UK Chamber of Commerce in which he warned the global trading system was “under real and sustained pressure”.

“Trade conflict between the US and China is testing the system as never before and is putting the prosperity, frankly, and living standards of billions of people at risk around the globe today.”

Morrison intends to use this visit, which culminates in D-Day commemorations in Portsmouth on Wednesday, to campaign against what he said was a developing “zero-sum mindset” in international trade – interpreted as a dig against Donald Trump’s America First policies.

In Portsmouth he will lobby G20 leaders including Trump, outgoing British Prime Minister Theresa May, French President Emmanuel Macron, German Chancellor Angela Merkel and Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau, for renewed support for institutions such as the World Bank, the IMF and the World Trade Organisation.

Morrison said those institutions had helped open markets and lift hundreds of millions of people out of poverty.

The WTO is in crisis as the US has blocked new appointees to its appellate body, which will lead to it being incapacitated in December when there will no longer be enough judges to issue rulings.

The EU and Canada are supporting a plan to set up a proxy version of the court to allow WTO members to continue using the body to arbitrate trade disputes.

Morrison said he would speak with Trump on Wednesday about his trade war with China.

“I will simply make [to Trump] the same comments that I’ve always made which is that I think it’s in everybody’s interests for these issues to be resolved,” he said.

The chamber of commerce lunch was sponsored by NAB.

Morrison thanked NAB and the Commonwealth Bank for “doing the right thing by their customers” by passing on the latest interest rate cut - “others omitted”, a reference to ANZ and Westpac.

He also singled out election guru Lynton Crosby whom he called a “dear friend over many years”.

“He taught me many things about campaigns and politics,” he said, and revealed he would be meeting Crosby and his wife Dawn in private later in the day.

The chamber lunch was due to be attended by former foreign secretary Boris Johnson, currently a leading contender to replace Theresa May as British Prime Minister.

However his seat – next to Crosby – was left empty.

Crosby is reportedly advising Johnson on his leadership bid.

On Tuesday afternoon Morrison also met Mark Carney, governor of the Bank of England.

During the private meeting they discussed the global economy and trade tensions – including the trade war between the US and China – and ways in which the G20 nations could help defuse them.

They also discussed “open banking”, a system in which banks share customer data to allow greater flexibility and competition in the financial sector.

Britain has led in this area but Australia is approaching it cautiously, with a pilot project due this year.

Anons, Cardinal George Pell's appeal begins TOMORROW, Wednesday 5 June 2019, 9:30am (Australian Eastern Standard Time).

George Pell appeal: What you need to know

George Pell’s case will return to court tomorrow as the disgraced cardinal appeals his conviction for sexually abusing two Melbourne choirboys.

The cardinal was found guilty in December of raping one choirboy and molesting another after mass in the sacristy of St Patrick’s Cathedral in 1996.

Pell, who was archbishop of Melbourne at the time, molested the first boy again about a month later.

The conviction was made public in February after a court-imposed gag order was lifted and Pell was sentenced to six years in jail – with a minimum of three years and eight months - by County Court Chief Judge Peter Kidd in March.

Pell’s team indicated last week they would not seek a reduced sentence if the appeal fails.


The appeal will take place in the Supreme Court in Melbourne tomorrow and Thursday from 9.30am.

Pell’s lawyers will first seek leave to appeal and if granted the case will be heard over the two days.

The case will be heard by the Chief Justice of the Supreme Court of Victoria Justice Anne Ferguson, President of the Court of Appeal Justice Chris Maxwell and Justice Mark Weinberg.

The appeal is being heard in the Supreme Court instead of the Court of Appeal to cater for intense interest in the case.

The case can be reported on and a live stream will be also hosted on the Supreme Court’s website.


Pell’s legal team cited three reasons for its appeal.

Their first claim is that the jury reached “unreasonable” verdicts based on the evidence.

“The verdicts are unreasonable and cannot be supported having regard to the evidence because on the whole of the evidence, including unchallenged exculpatory evidence from more than 20 Crown witnesses, it was not open to the jury to be satisfied beyond reasonable doubt on the word of the Complainant alone,” Pell’s team said in announcing its appeal.

Secondly, the defence says Judge Kidd erred by not allowing a 19-minute video reconstruction to be played to the jury which claimed to show where people would have been in the cathedral at the time of the abuse.

Judge Kidd had ruled the video was based on speculation and as new evidence, it could not be used during a closing address.

The final claim for appeal is that Pell was not arraigned in front of the jury in what was a “fundamental irregularity in the trial process”.

The video and arraignment arguments are technicalities and could see a retrial if they are upheld.

If the “unreasonable verdict” claim is upheld, Pell’s conviction would likely be overturned and he would be released from custody.


Pell has been in custody since February and it is not yet known if he will attend the appeal in person.

He was free when the appeal was lodged and had requested to be in court for the appeal hearing.

Now that he is behind bars, Pell may follow proceedings via video link.


We may not know the outcome of the appeal over the next two days.

The judges have the option to reserve their decision, the reasons for it, or both.

So no matter the verdict and given the public scrutiny on the decision, it may not be made public for weeks or months to come.

Legal action in Australia. Claiming Roundup was cause of non hodgkin's lymphoma

Melbourne gardener launches legal action against Monsanto in first Australian Roundup lawsuit

By national regional and rural reporter Jess Davis and Angus Verley

Updated Tue at 11:47am

Legal action has been launched against agribusiness giant Monsanto by a Melbourne gardener who claims his cancer was caused by the herbicide Roundup.

Key points:

The first Australian legal case against agribusiness giant Monsanto has been lodged by a Melbourne gardener who claims his cancer was caused by the herbicide Roundup

Roundup is the most commonly used herbicide in the world and its active ingredient is glyphosate

Monsanto has lost three trials in the US over links between cancer and glyphosate and has been ordered to pay out billions of dollars in damages to four cancer patients, with thousands more plaintiffs awaiting trial

It will be the first case in Australia following similar trials in the US.

The writs were lodged in Victoria's Supreme Court this morning.

Michael Ogliarolo, 54, ran his own landscape gardening business until 2015 but was forced to retire due to ill health.

Mr Ogliarolo was diagnosed with non-Hodgkin's lymphoma in 2011, after using Roundup for over 18 years in his work as a landscape gardener.

His lawyer Tony Carbone said his client would mix the herbicide and apply it on lawns and plants as part of his job.

The plaintiff claims that Monsanto failed to warn him that the use of Roundup products was dangerous and capable of causing serious injuries, loss and damage.

"What we're saying is that due to the heavy exposure, no warnings on the label to say 'look, wear a mask, wash your hands, do this and do that', consequently he was diagnosed with non-Hodgkin's lymphoma," Mr Carbone said.

Multiple fatalities, man arrested after shooting in Darwin

A man who allegedly opened fire in Darwin on Tuesday night, killing four men and injuring a woman, can be identified as 45-year-old Ben Hoffmann.

Hoffmann was on parole and wearing an electronic monitoring bracelet when he allegedly opened fire with a pump-action shotgun in the Darwin city area about 5.45pm local time (6.15pm AEST) on Tuesday.

The shooting spree began at a motel in the suburb of Woolner, before the alleged gunman travelled to four other locations, including to the outskirts of the city.

Police arrested Hoffmann, known to his friends as "Hoffy", in the Stuart Park area of Darwin at 6.45pm.

NT Police Commissioner Reece Kershaw said officers were able to track down the suspected gunman after he contacted a police duty superintendent, who alerted others to his location.

"He asked to be placed into protective custody, which we did," Commissioner Kershaw said. "We do believe he may have been trying to hand himself in. We're not sure."

"Witnesses say the man walked into the Palms Motel on McMinn Street in the suburb of Woolner just before 6:00pm while holding a pump-action shotgun and shot at multiple doors."

"Multiple witnesses said he was looking for someone called "Alex".

"He shot up every room in that place," one man said.

"He got what he wanted and then he left in his pick-up."

"I understand when an event like this occurs, especially considering recent global events, people's fears turn to terrorism. We can confirm this is not a terrorism event."

Some call it a pump-action shotgun, some call it a rifle, also witnesses say he left in a toyota pick-up. most Australians , especially Territorians, would call a Hilux a Ute

Gunman kills 4 people in Darwin, Australia.

(More RP from QRes#8527)

Four people have been killed and a woman has been rushed to hospital with gunshot wounds to her legs after a Darwin man allegedly went on a shooting rampage across the city tonight.

Parts of Darwin were thrown into lockdown before 6pm as police scoured the city to find the alleged gunman, believed to be armed with a sawn-off shotgun.

NT Police Duty Superintendent Lee Morgan confirmed to news.com.au four people were dead and two more had gunshot wounds.

Mr Morgan said police were unable to confirm if more people had been killed.

We’re still working through a number of crime scenes so we still don’t know if there are others,” he said.

Speaking at a press conference tonight, NT Police Commissioner Reece Kershaw said the alleged gunman had been out on parole after being freed from jail in January.

Mr Kershaw said the alleged gunman was well-known to police and was wearing an electronic monitoring bracelet tonight as he evaded officers through Darwin.

Australian Federal Police raid News Corp journalist Annika Smethurst's home over alleged national security leak

RP from QRes#8527

"According to The Daily Telegraph, the raid related to a story published in April last year in which Annika Smethurst reported that the Home Affairs and Defence departments were considering giving spy agencies greater surveillance powers."

"The Australian Signals Directorate (ASD) collects and assesses foreign intelligence information before passing it on to Australia's domestic and foreign spy agencies.

The ASD does not collect information on Australian citizens, but some senior public servants want to change that.

The story alleged new powers, if adopted, would go to the ASD to secretly access bank records, emails and text messages without leaving a trace."

Spying shock: Shades of Big Brother as cyber-security vision comes to light, Daily Telegraph


Federal police raid home of Australian journalist who revealed government's proposal to spy on the public


Australian journalist's home raided over spying report


Aussie Feds Raid News Corp Journalist's Home After Government Spying Exposé


* * *


The raid follows a story published by News Corp Australia publication, the Daily Telegraph, and written by national political editor, Annika Smethurst, in April 2018. The article, titled “Spying shock: Shades of Big Brother as cyber-security vision comes to light”, detailed a discussion between two government agencies that were reportedly discussing the potential for new surveillance powers for Australia’s electronic spy agency, the Australian Signals Directorate (ASD).

The Daily Telegraph article included photographs of top secret internal documents that detailed a proposal to allow the ASD to target Australians — if approved by the Defence and Home Affairs ministers.

An anonymous source told the publication the proposal would allow spies to access the digital records of Australians, such as financial transactions, health data and phone records, without a warrant.

The proposal also detailed a plan to grant authorities the ability to forcibly coerce government agencies and private businesses to comply with an order to provide information on Australian citizens, the Telegraph reported.

It would also allow for the ASD’s hackers to “proactively disrupt and covertly remove” cyber threats within Australia by “hacking into critical ­infrastructure”, it said. The organisation is currently focused on international threats.

Under Australian law, the Australian Security Intelligence Organisation (ASIO) can spy on Australians but they must have obtained a warrant issued by the Attorney-General. The warrant allows ASIO to enter and search premises, intercept and inspect mail, use surveillance devices, monitor communications and remotely access computers. It is expected to use other methods before using these powers.

Note that AUS Intel agencies did not need to out-source spying on AUS citizens in Australia. So what might have been the exchange made to get them to spy on USA citizens abroad?

Federal police raid home of Australian journalist who revealed government's proposal to spy on the public

JENNI RYALL, BUSINESS INSIDER JUN 4, 2019 (few hours ago)


9cba00 () No. 6675982


Ms Smethurst, the national politics editor of the Sunday Telegraph and other News Corp Australia titles, reported last April that Australia's Home and Defence ministries were discussing a proposal that would grant new powers to the Australian Signals Directorate (ASD), a cyber intelligence agency.

She wrote that under the plan, emails, bank records and text messages of Australians could be accessed by the ASD if the two ministries gave their approval. Currently, the ASD is not allowed to spy on Australians, though the domestic spy agency, ASIO, can investigate citizens with a warrant.

Ms Smethurst's report included images from a top secret document.

At the time, the two ministries and the ASD released a joint statement saying: "There is no proposal to increase the ASD's powers to collect intelligence on Australians or to covertly access their private data."



Smethurst’s article revealed that the emails, bank accounts and text messages of Australian citizens could be secretly accessed by government spies without a trace under the proposal, as long as the Defense and Home Affairs ministers approved the plan.

The raid comes three weeks after the federal election returned the Morrison government to power, leaving Home Affairs minister Peter Dutton at the helm.

Current Australian law prohibits the ASD from spying on citizens – a power left to the Australian Federal Police (AFP) and the Australian Security Intelligence Organization, the country’s domestic spy agency.

Smethhurt revealed that Dutton and former Defense Minister Marise Payne had reviewed the proposal, however it had not moved beyond that stage to be formally presented to the government.

“This raid demonstrates a dangerous act of intimidation towards those committed to telling uncomfortable truths. The raid was outrageous and heavy handed.

“News Corp Australia has expressed the most serious concerns about the willingness of governments to undermine the Australian public’s right to know about important decisions governments are making that can and will impact ordinary Australian citizens.

“What’s gone on this morning sends clear and dangerous signals to journalists and newsrooms across Australia. This will chill public interest reporting.”

NGO Electronic Frontiers Australia (EFA) told Business Insider Australia via email that the police raid was “authoritarian intimidation” and that we are all entitled to live in a free society without fear of bullying by police.

“We need to have a debate about Australians’ rights to privacy and security, and it needs to be held out in the open with the participation of civil society,” a spokesperson for EFA said.

“Exposing the government’s secret plans for yet more surveillance of our everyday lives is clearly in the public interest. This heavy-handed reaction from the government, and so soon after being returned to government after an expected loss, indicates that this is about consolidating power, not keeping us safe. That should scare anyone who wants Australia to be a free society.”

Australia suffers second worst mass shooting since 1996

RP from QRes#8528

Four are dead and one is injured in Australia’s second deadliest mass shooting since the 1996 Port Arthur massacre in Tasmania. A 45-year-old gunman began opening fire with a pump-action shot gun at a motel in the northern city of Darwin before opening fire at other nearby locations in the city’s central business district around 6 p.m. Monday. Pump-action shotguns are largely prohibited in the country under sweeping legislation passed in the aftermath of the Port Arthur shooting, where 35 people were killed.

“He shot up all the rooms, and he went to every room looking for somebody, and he shot them all up,” John Rose, a witness, told Australia’s public broadcaster. “Then we saw him rush out, jump into his Toyota pickup and rush off.” Police said the man was out of prison on parole and was wearing an electronic monitoring bracelet. After about an hour police took the suspect into custody.

Northern Territory Police Commissioner Reece Kershaw said that they were still working on establishing a motive for the shooting. “We’re still trying to establish the intent and motivation behind this, but all I can say, sadly, is that people have lost their lives this evening,” Kershaw said. Australian Prime Minister Scott Morrison said that the shooting was not terrorism-related. “I have been in contact with Chief Minister Gunner and understand this is not an act of terrorism and a person has been taken into custody. My thoughts are with Territorians and the tight-knit community in Darwin,” he tweeted.

In addition to prohibiting pump-action shotguns, the strict gun control measures passed after the Port Arthur shooting also banned automatic and semi-automatic assault rifles, except in rare circumstances. It also created a national gun registry and a temporary buyback program.

WikiLeaks outs America's Aussie mole: Labor's Mark Arbib named as embassy source



10:54PM DECEMBER 8, 2010

FEDERAL Labor powerbroker Mark Arbib has been outed as a key source of intelligence on government and internal party machinations to the US embassy.

New embassy cables, released by WikiLeaks to Fairfax newspapers today, reveal the influential right-wing Labor MP has been one of the embassy's best ALP informants, along with former frontbencher Bob McMullan and current MP Michael Danby.

The documents say the Minister for Sport had been secretly offering details of Labor's inner workings even before his election to the Senate in 2007, dating back to his time as general secretary of the party's NSW branch from 2004.

But Mr Labor minister Mark Arbib has defended his relationship with America after revelations in WikiLeaks cables that he has been their insider in Canberra for years.

In a three-sentence statement issued to The Sydney Morning Herald, Senator Arbib. who is currently on leave, said: "I am publicly known as a strong supporter of Australia's relationship with the United States.

"I am an active member of the well known Australia-American Leadership Dialogue which meets regularly.

"I, like many members of the Federal Parliament, have regular discussions about the state of Australian and US politics with members of the US mission and consulate."

Senator Arbib was one of the "faceless men" who was instrumental in the decision to oust Kevin Rudd and install Julia Gillard as Prime Minister in June.

The documents also identify Senator Arbib as a strong backer of the Australia-US alliance.

He understands the importance of supporting a vibrant relationship with the US while not being too deferential. We have found him personable, confident and articulate," an embassy profile on Senator Arbib written in July last year says. "He has met with us repeatedly throughout his political rise.

Government frontbencher Bill Shorten rejected suggestionsSenator Arbib was a spy.

"I just think that's nonsense," he told Sky News, adding that Senator Arbib was "a very conscientious minister".

"He puts a lot of effort into his portfolios and any other proposition about him just isn't correct at all."

Mr Shorten played down reports that Mr Arbib forewarned US officials in October 2009 that then-prime minister Kevin Rudd may face a leadership challenge.

"I think that the commentary I've seen this morning in the newspapers is dinner party gossip masquerading as US intelligence.

"I think each week someone's got to send a report of to America. So they jot down gossip and conversation.

"I just don't think what I've seen today is any more than what any journalist in the press gallery would already know, indeed what half of Australia might already know."

The embarrassing revelations come as lawyers for whistleblower Julian Assange say the 39-year-old Australian will not be safe if he is sent to Sweden for trial because the "endgame" of US authorities is to move him there to be charged with espionage.

The US Justice Department is considering charging Mr Assange with espionage over the website's release of a mass of classified documents and Britain's The Independent newspaper said US and Swedish officials had already held informal discussions about the possibility of him being delivered into US custody.

Assange was yesterday refused bail and sent to London's Wandsworth prison after appearing in a British court to answer a Swedish extradition application.

As he awoke from his first night in British custody, his lawyer, Mark Stephens, told The Australian the Townsville-born computer hacker had formally approached Australian consular officials in London and Sweden for help in fighting a Swedish extradition request over sexual assault allegations.

Describing Sweden as the US's "lickspittle state of choice", Mr Stephens said he feared the Swedish extradition order was merely a prelude to Mr Assange's ultimate removal to the US, where possession of 251,000 state department cables has caused a political uproar and calls for retribution.

"His Swedish lawyer has said explicitly to me that it would be quite unsafe for Julian in Sweden at this time," Mr Stephens said. "Not in terms of he would be harmed in Sweden, but that Sweden is not the end game."

Snow fall in southern Queensland, Australia

RP from QRes#8531

Snow has fallen in parts of southern Queensland for just the third time in 35 years and temperatures are expected to continue to plummet. Icy winds dropped the apparent temperature to below zero in other inland Queensland communities on Tuesday.

Snow fell in Queensland's Granite Belt west of Brisbane, at the Girraween National Park and nearby Eukey, but it was only light and it did not accumulate on the ground for long. Bureau of Meteorology forecaster Lachlan Stoney said it was the third time snow had fallen in Queensland in 35 years, with 2015 and 1984 recording snowfalls.

"We've had colder mornings (this year) but we had enough moisture in the atmosphere for snow (on Tuesday)," Mr Stoney told AAP. While it is not expected to snow on Wednesday, he said temperatures across the southern Queensland were expected to drop below zero due to clearer skies.

The arrival of a cold air mass from southern states is responsible for the drop in temperatures. At Toowoomba, west of Brisbane, the temperature felt like -4.6 degrees early on Tuesday morning, even though the official temperature was 3.1 degrees. It was a similar situation in other southern inland communities, where the "feels like" temperature was at or slightly below zero.

Cardinal Pell’s court appeal will be live-streamed from Australia

RP from QRes#8533


MELBOURNE, Australia, May 30, 2019 (LifeSiteNews) — Cardinal George Pell’s appeal to the Victorian Supreme Court next Wednesday will be available for viewing worldwide from Australia via a livestream broadcast.

Cardinal Pell was convicted earlier this year on charges that he sexually abused two boys in the 1990s while he served as Archbishop of Melbourne. Presiding over the appeal will be Chief Justice of the Supreme Court of Victoria Anne Ferguson, President of the Court of Appeal Justice Chris Maxwell and Justice Mark Weinberg.

The hearing is scheduled to be live-streamed

[ https://www.supremecourt.vic.gov.au/law-and-practice/court-of-appeal ]

from the court’s website throughout Wednesday, June 5 and into Thursday, June 6. During the hearing, a camera will be focused solely on the three justices of the Court of Appeal. Neither Pell nor the lawyers will be shown on camera.

Pell, who turns 78 in June, has served three months of his prison term and would not be eligible for parole until 2022.

The cardinal is expected to appear before the Court of Appeal, to whom the lawyers will appeal his conviction. Rather than being held in the Court of Appeal building, where seating is limited, the hearing will take place in one of the larger courtrooms in the Supreme Court building.

Barrister Bret Walker, who is leading Pell’s appeal, is expected to argue against the jury conviction. Pell’s lawyers have not yet filed an appeal of the sentence.

The judges will hear arguments that the verdict was unreasonable and that evidence presented by prosecutors was faulty. Pell’s lawyers are expected to say that the fact that he was not arraigned (asked to plead guilty or not guilty) before the jury was irregular. Instead, jurors were shown a video of Pell’s plea that was recorded at the original trial four months earlier.

In addition, Pell’s lawyers will argue that Judge Peter Kidd, who sentenced Pell, wrongly prevented Pell’s lawyers from introducing a graphic video to the jury during their closing arguments. Purportedly, the video shows how Pell, when vested in liturgical vestments, could not have easily abused the boys in question. Pell did not, however, take the stand to answer questions on that point.

Pell’s case was retried with a new jury after the original jury was dismissed when it failed to reach a unanimous verdict. In the new trial, the jury accepted prosecutors’ arguments that Pell had sexually assaulted two boys in a room in the cathedral in December 1996, and then again sexually assaulted one of the boys in a cathedral hallway the following year. Evidence was provided by one of the former rboys, now a man in his 30s. However, another alleged victim died in 2014 due to a heroin overdose.

Pell’s convictions would be annulled if the appeals court rules in his favor, thus allowing his release from prison. However, the judges may also call for a retrial.

Should Pell succeed in his appeal, it is likely that he may face additional days in court for a new trial on the charges. There are other civil suits underway against the Archdiocese of Melbourne. Two other men allege that Pell touched them inappropriately when they were boys.

Pell was one of the closest advisers to Pope Francis. If his conviction is upheld, he will face removal from the College of Cardinals and suppression of his priestly faculties, thus becoming one of the highest-ranking churchmen to face such a sanction.

Critics of Pell’s trial have suggested that some of the evidence was actually taken from an article in Rolling Stone magazine, which described in 2011 allegations of sexual abuse leveled at a priest in the United States.

Federal Police raid ABC offices in Sydney over 2017 story about Afghanistan, a day after Annika Smethurst search

RP from QRes#8535

Australia’s media industry is bracing for more “heavy-handed” raids by the Federal Police, following the extraordinary searches of the ABC today and a journalist’s home yesterday.

Several officers remain inside the Sydney headquarters of the public broadcaster, trawling through more than 9200 items in relation to reports published two years ago regarding alleged unlawful killings and misconduct by Special Forces troops in Afghanistan.

It comes just a day after the Canberra home of Annika Smethurst, political editor of News Corp Australia’s Sunday newspapers, was stormed by seven AFP officers who spent seven hours poking through her personal items, including her underwear drawer.

Claire Harvey, deputy editor of The Sunday Telegraph, said she was concerned more journalists would be targeted in what was clearly an attempt to intimidate.

“All media organisations should be concerned about who’s going to be next,” Harvey said on ABC News today.

“There will be more raids. That’s inevitable. There are plenty of stories I can think of that the government might be targeting next.”


Australian Federal Police officers are conducting a raid at the ABC’s headquarters in Sydney over reports published in 2017 about alleged unlawful killings and misconduct by Special Forces troops.

The public broadcaster’s Ultimo offices and studios are the subject of a search in relation to The Afghan Files special, which included hundreds of pages of leaked Defence Force documents.

John Lyons, executive editor of ABC News and the head of its investigations department, is live-tweeting the raid, being carried out by six AFP officers, including IT specialists.

The national broadcaster says a raid on its Sydney headquarters over a 2017 story that Australian defence personnel may have committed war crimes in Afghanistan "raises concerns over freedom of the press".

The ABC vowed to protect its sources even as the federal police raid was continuing at the broadcaster's offices in Ultimo on Wednesday.

A warrant indicates digital forensic officers will target documents and computers linked to reporters Dan Oakes and Sam Clark as well as news director Gaven Morris, the ABC reports.

The news organisation says the raid is in relation to a July 2017 story that revealed "hundreds of pages of secret Defence Force documents leaked to the ABC give an unprecedented insight into the clandestine operations of Australia's elite special forces in Afghanistan including incidents of troops killing unarmed men and children".

The ABC reported at the time that some of the cases detailed in the documents were being investigated "as possible unlawful killings".

"It is highly unusual for the national broadcaster to be raided in this way," the ABC said in a statement on Wednesday afternoon.

"This is a serious development and raises legitimate concerns over freedom of the press and proper public scrutiny of national security and defence matters."

The ABC said it stood by its journalists, would protect its sources and continue to report "without fear or favour" on national security and intelligence issues in the public interest.

The Australian Federal Police in a statement said the raid was "in relation to allegations of publishing classified material contrary to provisions of the Crimes Act".

It said the search warrant related to a referral received on July 11, 2017, from the Defence Force chief and the then-acting secretary for Defence.

The federal police said the warrant was duly authorised and no arrests were planned.

ABC executive editor John Lyons tweeted that ABC lawyers asked the AFP if there was any connection with a raid on News Corp Australia journalist Annika Smethurst on Tuesday and the police said "No".

The AFP raided Smethurst's Canberra home over a 2018 story detailing an alleged government proposal to spy on Australians.

The AFP on Wednesday confirmed officially that: "This (ABC) activity is not linked to a search warrant executed in Canberra yesterday."

The media union said the dual raids were a disturbing attempt to intimidate legitimate journalism in the public interest.

"This is nothing short of an attack on the public's right to know," MEAA media section president Marcus Strom said in a statement.

"Police raiding journalists is becoming normalised and it has to stop."

The union argued national security laws passed in recent years had been designed not just to combat terrorism but also to persecute whistleblowers who sought to expose wrongdoing.

Storm demanded to know who'd ordered the raids and why they came after the federal election given the stories were published in 2017 and 2018.

Federal Labor said it had requested a briefing through Home Affairs Minister Peter Dutton's office asking "why raids of such nature are warranted".

Lyons tweeted ABC lawyers had told the AFP officers: "We waive no rights, and reserve right to take injunction against the warrant."

Australian Federal Police raid ABC headquarters at Sydney's Ultimo

RP from QRes#8536

June 5, 2019


Australian Federal Police are carrying out a raid on the ABC headquarters in the inner-Sydney suburb of Ultimo.

Three officers entered the Harris Street building just before 11.30am. The plain-clothes officers were met by ABC security and staff in the lobby area of the ABC Ultimo Centre before meeting lawyers for the broadcaster.

The raids are in connection with a 2017 report called "the Afghan files", based on leaked defence documents.

The police warrant names ABC reporters Dan Oakes and Sam Clark and news director Gaven Morris.

The story revealed incidents of Australian troops killing unarmed men and children, with the cases being investigated as potential unlawful killings.

The sensitive documents were marked as "AUSTEO" - Australian eyes only.

The raid comes the day after Australian Federal Police raided the home of News Corp journalist Annika Smethurst in connection with a 2018 story she authored concerning top-secret plans to expand surveillance of Australian citizens. Smethurst has not been charged with any offence.

It also comes days after a former Australian military lawyer, charged over the leak of documents to the ABC, was committed to stand trial in the ACT Supreme Court.

David William McBride, 55, is accused of theft and three counts of breaching the Defence Act, for being a person who is a member of the Defence Force and communicating a plan, document or information, an offence that carries an unlimited fine or prison time as penalty when heard on indictment.

ABC executive editor John Lyons, who is tweeting Wednesday's conversation between ABC lawyers and the AFP officers, said police have told them Wednesday's raid is not in connection with Tuesday's search of Smethurst's house.

"ABC lawyers tell AFP: We waive no rights, and reserve the right to take injunction against the warrant," Lyons tweeted.

"The AFP tell us they are interested in 'certain things'."

In a statement, the Australian Federal Police said Wednesday's search warrant "relates to a referral received on 11 July 2017 from the Chief of the Defence Force and the then-acting Secretary for Defence".

The raids were "in relation to allegations of publishing classified material, contrary to provisions of the Crimes Act 1914".

"All AFP search warrants are authorised by a magistrate or an appropriate member of the judiciary. This is the result of supporting documentation or material being presented to the court which provides sufficient suspicion that a criminal offence has been committed," the statement said.

"No arrests are planned today as a result of this activity."

ABC managing director David Anderson said it was "highly unusual" for the national broadcaster to be raided in this way.

"This is a serious development and raises legitimate concerns over freedom of the press and proper public scrutiny of national security and defence matters," he said in a statement.

"The ABC stands by its journalists, will protect its sources and continue to report without fear or favour on national security and intelligence issues when there is a clear public interest."

Prime Minister Scott Morrison on Wednesday said he was not troubled by a federal police raid on the home of Smethurst, arguing all Australians must abide by national security laws.

2GB radio host Ben Fordham also revealed this week that he had been contacted by the Department of Home Affairs about his reporting, with the department investigating how he obtained "highly confidential" information about asylum seeker vessels.

Fordham said the department was seeking his co-operation with the probe, which could become a criminal investigation and "potentially" involve a police raid.

Journalists' union the Media, Entertainment and Arts Alliance said a second day of raids set a "disturbing pattern of assaults on Australian press freedom" and was an attack on the public's right to know.

"Police raiding journalists is becoming normalised and it has to stop," union official Marcus Strom said.

"These raids are about intimidating journalists and media organisations because of their truth-telling. They are about more than hunting down whistleblowers that reveal what governments are secretly doing in our name, but also preventing the media from shining a light on the actions of government."

Strom said the Coalition and Labor had together created a legal environment that was enabling a "politically motivated assault" on public interest journalism.

Centre Alliance senator Rex Patrick immediately hit out at the latest police raids, saying the ABC's investigation was clearly in the public interest.

"It appears this is the chosen week for a full-blown attack on freedom of the press in this country," he said.

Greens senator Sarah Hanson-Young called for an urgent inquiry into press freedom.

"Another day, another AFP raid on Australian journalists. This is a very worrying sign," she said.

"Australians deserve and have every right to know what our [government] is up to."

Australian police raids on national broadcaster, News Corp prompt outcry

RP from QRes#8536

SYDNEY (Reuters) - Police raided the offices of Australia’s national broadcaster on Wednesday over allegations it had published classified material, the second raid on a media outlet in two days, prompting complaints that the “outrageous” raids hindered media freedom. The Australian Federal Police (AFP) said its officers carried out a search warrant at the head office of the government-funded Australian Broadcasting Corp. (ABC) in Sydney on Wednesday. That came a day after police raided the home of a News Corp editor, although the AFP said the raids were unrelated.

“It is highly unusual for the national broadcaster to be raided in this way,” ABC Managing Director David Anderson said in a statement. “This is a serious development and raises legitimate concerns over freedom of the press and proper public scrutiny of national security and defense matters,” he said. The AFP said the ABC raid was in relation to allegations it had published classified material and followed a referral from the chief of the Australian Defence Force and a former acting defense secretary in 2017. The ABC raid was authorized by a court and based on evidence that provided “sufficient suspicion that a criminal offence has been committed”, the AFP said in a statement.

Marcus Strom, president of the Media Entertainment and Arts Alliance trade union, said on his Twitter account the two raids were “just outrageous”. “Police raiding journalists is becoming normalized. It has to stop,” he said. The ABC raid was in relation to a series of broadcasts in 2017 about alleged misconduct by Australian troops in Afghanistan, the broadcaster said.

The raid on the News Corp editor related to a 2018 newspaper report that said Australian intelligence agencies wanted to carry out surveillance by accessing people’s emails, bank accounts and text messages, domestic media reported. News Corp called the raid on its employee “outrageous and heavy handed”, and “a dangerous act of intimidation”. The Rupert Murdoch-controlled company said it had “the most serious concerns about the willingness of governments to undermine the Australian public’s right to know about important decisions governments are making”.

Australian Prime Minister Scott Morrison was reported as saying he believed in media freedom but that there were also clear rules about the use of classified information. “​It never troubles me that our laws are being upheld,” the Sydney Morning Herald quoted Morrison as saying.

Questions raised over arrival of Chinese warships in Sydney

RP from QRes#8539


Questions have been raised about the arrival of three Chinese warships in the Sydney Harbour, with New South Wales Premier Gladys Berejiklian revealing she was not informed prior.

Prime Minister Scott Morrison has dismissed concerns, saying he had known about the arrival for 'some time' and insisting 'it certainly wasn’t a surprise to the government'.

Defence experts say the government's decision not to formally announce the Chinese naval taskforce visit to Australia is a 'bad look'.

Shadow Minister for Defence and newly appointed Deputy Labor leader Richard Marles has taken aim at the government for its failure to announce the arrival in advance, questioning why the Coalition 'wouldn't bother to let anyone know it was happening'.

Australian feds raid broadcaster’s office over Afghan war crime stories

RP from QRes#8541

Australian police have raided national broadcaster ABC's headquarters over a 2017 story series exposing crimes committed by special forces in Afghanistan, the second raid on journalists in two days.

Six officers, including three police technicians, descended on the broadcaster's Sydney offices with a warrant explaining the raid was "in relation to allegations of publishing classified material, contrary to provisions of the Crimes Act 1914." The classified material in question? Hundreds of pages of leaked defense documents marked AUSTEO (Australian Eyes Only) that formed the basis of ABC's 2017 story series 'The Afghan Files.' The warrant names the report's authors, Dan Oakes and Sam Clark, as well as ABC news director Gaven Morris.

The officers rounded up ABC's IT staff to assist in examining their email server looking for "a series of key words," while others scoured a hard drive, according to John Lyons, ABC executive editor and head of investigations department, who live-tweeted the raid. Officers helpfully told him they were interested in "very specific matters" and "certain things," dryly noting "this could take some time," Lyons reported. Four hours into the raid, they had collected over 9,200 files and were deciding which could be seized under the warrant.

Former Vatican treasurer appeals against abuse convictions

RP from QRes#8544

MELBOURNE (Reuters) - Former Vatican treasurer Cardinal George Pell appeared in an Australian court on Wednesday for an appeal hearing to overturn convictions for sexually abusing two choir boys in the 1990s. Pell, who has maintained his innocence throughout, wore a black suit with a clerical collar in his first public appearance since March, shortly after becoming the most senior Catholic worldwide to be convicted for child sex offences. The 77-year-old was jailed for six years after he was found guilty on five charges of abusing two 13-year-old boys at St Patrick’s Cathedral while he was archbishop of Melbourne more than 20 years ago.

The appeal is being held over two days in the state of Victoria’s Supreme Court, although a ruling could take several weeks. Pell could be released or face a retrial if the court rules in his favor. The court was packed with lawyers, journalists and members of the public while a few protesters outside the building carried placards denouncing the Catholic Church. Pell’s original trial judge in March said that because of his age, the former Vatican treasurer could die in jail. His fate now rests in the hands of three judges presiding over the appeal.

Pell is appealing his conviction on three grounds: the jury verdicts were “unreasonable” based on the evidence, the judge erred by blocking the defense from showing a video graphic in its closing argument, and there was a “fundamental irregularity” as Pell did not make his plea physically in the presence of the jury panel, but rather by a video-link. Pell’s appeal claim said the whole case rested on the account of one of the two victims, and there were “at least thirteen solid obstacles in the path of a conviction”. “No matter what view was taken of the complainant as a witness, it was simply not open to the jury to accept his word beyond reasonable doubt,” the appeal claim to the court said.

Pell’s barrister, Bret Walker, told the court his client could not have been in the priests’ sacristy at the time of the events as he would have been out on the front steps of the cathedral after mass, a point that went unchallenged at the trial. The claimant said the first assault took place in the priests’ sacristy after mass in late 1996. “You have to destroy the alibi, otherwise there is a reasonable doubt,” Walker told the court. He said the victim who testified at the trial gave differing accounts about the timing of the abuse, which also should have raised a reasonable doubt. The Crown will lay out its response to the appeal on Thursday.

While awaiting the outcome of his appeal, Pell remains a cardinal and could only be dismissed from the priesthood if the Vatican’s Congregation for the Doctrine of the Faith found him guilty following a separate canonical trial or a shortened procedure called an “administrative process”. Pell was chosen in 2014 to oversee the Vatican’s vast finances, but no longer has any position in the Vatican.

No repeat of WWII horrors: leaders

Scott Morrison sat behind the Queen, outgoing British Prime Minister Theresa May and US President Donald Trump during a moving commemoration of the 75th anniversary of D-Day, soon after signing a world leaders’ Peace Pledge declaring the unspeakable horrors of World War II would never be revisited.

The Prime Minister was one of 16 world leaders, including German Chancellor Angela Merkel, to make the pledge as they saluted the anniversary of the turning point of WWII.

Mr Morrison then met 300 veterans of the D-Day landing, although there were none of the 3300-strong Australian contingent that took part in Operation Overlord on June 6, 1944. Thirteen Australians died on D-Day.

Ninety-three-year-old D Day British veteran Thomas Stonehouse, 93, of Hampshire told The Australian: “I was dead lucky to survive.” He said that his abiding memory was being dreadfully seasick during the landing. His mate who had enrolled in the army on the same day as him — their shared 18th birthday — died beside him that day.

The Peace Pledge acknowledges the 16 nations present at the D-Day ceremony will ensure the un­imag­in­able horror of what happened 75 years ago will not be repeated.

The nations who have signed it include Germany, the US, Britain, Australia, Belgium, Canada, Greece, Czech Republic, Holland, Norway, Poland and France.

“In this way, we salute the surviving veterans of D-Day and we honour the memories of those who came before us,” the pledge says. “We will ensure that the sacrifices of the past are never in vain and never forgotten.”

It also promotes working together in a multilateral sense, and reinforces the strong message of the UK from Britain to Mr Trump to work together constructively as friends and allies.

World leaders who were in attendance were Mr Morrison, French president Emmanuel Macron, Canadian PM Justin Trudeau, US President Donald Trump, Prime Minister Charles Michel from Belgium, the Czech Republic’s Prime Minister Andrej Babis, President Prokopis Pavlopoulos from Greece, Germany’s Chancellor Angela Merkel, the Prime Minister of Luxembourg Xavier Bettel, the Dutch PM Mark Rutte, Norway’s PM Erna Solberg, Poland’s PM Mateusz Morawiecki and Slovakia’s deputy Prime Minister Richard Rasi.

Lieutenant Commander Scott Roberts of the Royal Australian Navy Lieutenant Commander Scott Roberts had a key role in the emotional commemoration representing Australia’s participation in the huge Allied invasion.

Lieutenant Commander Roberts read an excerpt from the 1943 Tehran Conference, where Winston Churchill, Franklin D. Roosevelt, and Russia’s Joseph Stalin discussed military strategy against Germany, and developed the D-Day plan.

“We look with confidence to the day when all peoples of the world may live free lives, untouched by tyranny, and according to their varying desires and their own consciences. We came here with hope and determination. We leave here, friends in fact, in spirit and in purpose,’’ he read.

The Queen is the only female member of the royal family to have served in the military, training as a mechanic with the Auxiliary Territorial Service in 1945 upon turning 18. She remembered the words of her father, King George VI, as he called for a new unconquerable resolve for the D-Day invasion and she then added: “With humility and pleasure on behalf of the country and the whole free world I say to you all, thank you.

She said: “When I attended the commemoration of the 60th anniversary of the D-Day Landings, some thought it might be the last such event. But the wartime generation — my generation — is resilient, and I am delighted to be with you in Portsmouth today.’’

Other speakers at the commemoration were Mr Macron, who read a letter from a 16-year-old French Resistance member who was executed by the Nazis; Mr Trump, who read excerpts of a prayer broadcast across the US by his predecessor Franklin D. Roosevelt on the night of the D-Day invasion; and Mrs May, who read a letter from Captain Norman Skinner of the Royal Army Service Corps, to his wife Gladys on June 3, 1944, that was found in his pocket after he was killed in action.

Before the event, Mr Morrison said he would be remembering the sacrifice of Australians in both ­during D-Day and the entirety of WWII. He said it was an honour to represent Australia paying tribute to those who stormed the beaches and landed in of Normandy on June 6, 1944.

“At those beaches now forever etched in our consciousness, our memory — Utah, Omaha, Juno, Gold and Sword — tens of thousands of young men faced enemy fire and their own fear and conquered it, all for the higher cause of freedom,’’ Mr Morrison said.

More Police Raids As War On Journalism Escalates Worldwide

RP from QRes#8549

The Australian Federal Police have conducted two raids on journalists and seized documents in purportedly unrelated incidents in the span of just two days.

Yesterday the AFP raided the home of News Corp Australia journalist Annika Smethurst, seeking information related to her investigative report last year which exposed the fact that the Australian government has been discussing the possibility of giving itself unprecedented powers to spy on its own citizens. Today they raided the Sydney headquarters of the Australian Broadcasting Corp, seizing information related to a 2017 investigative report on possible war crimes committed by Australian forces in Afghanistan.

In a third, also ostensibly unrelated incident, another Australian reporter disclosed yesterday that the Department of Home Affairs has initiated an investigation of his reporting on a story about asylum seeker boats which could lead to an AFP criminal case, saying he’s being pressured to disclose his source.

AFP: I’m still staggered by the power of this warrant. It allows the AFP to “add, copy, delete or alter” material in the ABC’s computers. All Australians, please think about that: as of this moment, the AFP has the power to delete material in the ABC’s computers. Australia 2019.

Citizens Disobey New Zealand Gun Ban, Only 530 of 300,000 People Turned Guns In

RP from QRes#8549

After New Zealand banned people from having guns in reaction to the terrible shooting in March, almost everyone is refusing to obey the law.

In March, New Zealand Prime Minister Jacinda Ardern announced the “first tranche” in a number of moves to restrict the rights of New Zealand citizens to protect themselves with firearms. This move was in direct response to the horrific murders that unfolded on March 15. Coincidentally, this is the exact move the terrorist who carried out these attacks had hoped for and predicted. The good news is, however, that most citizens are refusing to turn in their guns.

The terrorist who murdered 50 people earlier this year was engaging in a classic propaganda of the deed in which he predicted—accurately—that his murder would spark the restriction of gun rights. Lawmakers took his bait.

“On 15 March, our history changed forever. Now, our laws will too,” said Ardern as she carried out the will of this terrorist. “We are announcing action today on behalf of all New Zealanders to strengthen our gun laws and make our country a safer place.”

“What we’re banning today are the things used in last Friday’s attack,” she said, adding: “It’s about all of us, it’s in the national interest and it’s about safety.”

According to a new report from the NZ Herald, however, the citizens feel “safer” by holding on to their guns.

Australian Authorities seize almost 1.6 tonnes of ice (Meth) hidden in stereo speakers

RP from QRes#8556

A joint investigation between Australian Federal Police and Border Force officers has uncovered the largest amount of ice to ever make it to Australian shores.

The mega-haul, close to 1.6 tonnes, was hidden inside stereo speakers sent from Bangkok, Thailand and was discovered when border officers selected a container for further inspection at Melbourne’s ports.

In total, 1.596 tonnes of methylamphetamine and 37kgs of heroin

here have been no arrests and ABF and the AFP are continuing investigations.

ABF Regional Commander Victoria, Craig Palmer, said the record detection would have a significant impact on drug supply in the state.

“Without the sophisticated targeting and detection capabilities of the ABF, these drugs would have made it to the streets of Melbourne and beyond,” Commander Palmer said.

“This is the largest meth bust we’ve ever seen in this country and demonstrates not only the brazen nature of those involved in this criminal activity, but the resolve of the ABF in Victoria and around the country to stop these imports.”

AFP Acting Commander Peter Bodel, Organised Crime, said the seizure has stopped the drugs from devastating the community.

“The effect of these drugs on the community and families would have been profound. It may be your loved one, a friend or neighbour who has been spared the terrifying impact of this mammoth shipment.”

Maybe China owns Australia? Or they think they do?

But what about the Australian Federal Police raids on deep state journalists. This is really confusing since I doubt that either the ABC journalists or the AFP leadership are white hats.

Right now I'm thinking that this is the Australian deep state trying to tee something up. Maybe to set a precedent to raid everyone they want? Maybe to set a precedent to so that they can claim everything posted on 8Chan is an illegal leak, even when it's not?

It really looks like somebody in Australia is panicking. Now we have to figure out what it means. Right now I can't decide.

US police officer Mohamed Noor jailed for death of Justine Damond Ruszczyk

A former Minneapolis police officer has been sentenced to jail for the fatal shooting of an Australian woman nearly two years ago.

Former police officer Mohamed Noor was sentenced to a 12.5-year prison sentence for shooting dead Australian life coach Justine Damond Ruszczyk.

Justine Damond Ruszczyk grew up on Sydney's northern beaches and devoted her life to helping people and animals.

Mohamed Noor was born in war-torn Somalia, fled to Kenya as a five-year-old refugee with his family before settling in the US where he overcame racism and a lack of English to become a celebrated Minneapolis police recruit.

Ms Damond Ruszczyk, 40, was shot dead in an alley.

Noor, 33, fired the fatal bullet.

"Good people sometimes do bad things," Judge Kathryn Quantance told Noor as he stood before her in a Minneapolis court on Friday.

Noor was convicted by a Minneapolis jury of Ms Damond Ruszczyk's third-degree murder and second-degree manslaughter in April and Judge Quantance showed little mercy.

She sentenced Noor to a 12.5-year prison term.

The sentence was announced at the end of an emotionally-charged hearing where the fallen officer spoke to Ms Damond Ruszczyk's American fiance and Australian family.

Noor, who admitted he took the life of "a perfect person", said he had wanted to meet with Mr Damond and Ms Damond Ruszczyk's father John, brother Jason and other family members but was prevented from doing so.

He issued an apology and told how he wrote the family a letter from jail.

"I have wanted to sit with Mr Damond and tell him about what happened and to extend my condolences to him for the last two years as well as to Ms Ruszczyk's other families," Noor said in a voice trembling with emotion.

"The process of the courts and the lawyers (are) so cruel in the way it makes us behave to each other.

"The system is dehumanising."

The public gallery was filled with tears as a video of Ms Damond Ruszczyk's life was played.

Tears also flowed when Mr Damond, who was set to marry his "soul mate" in a romantic ceremony in Hawaii just weeks after the tragedy, addressed the court.

It was in the form of a letter he wrote to Ms Damond Ruszczyk.

Mr Damond's heart-wrenching words included how they were planning to have a baby.

"I miss you every day - every moment," Mr Damond said.

Ms Damond Ruszczyk's Australian family members were not in court but their impact statements were read.

Her father requested the maximum sentence and described how "Justine's death has left me incomplete".

The murder count carried a maximum 25 years' prison and the manslaughter charge 10 years.

George Pell faces new legal fight over allegations he failed to protect abuse victim from paedophile

A man abused by notorious paedophile Christian Brother Edward "Ted" Dowlan is suing George Pell, alleging the disgraced Cardinal did nothing to protect him.

The man was a student at East Melbourne's Cathedral College when he was abused by Dowlan, who was first jailed in the 1990s for abusing boys in the 1970s and 1980s.

Taking civil action in the Supreme Court, the man alleges Pell knew of Dowlan's abuse and was involved in moving him from school to school, allowing it to continue.

Pell was the episcopal vicar for education in the Ballarat diocese from 1973 to 1984.

Dowlan is serving jail time for abuse he admitted committing between 1971 and 1988.

The Supreme Court heard on Friday Pell had not responded to the civil suit.

Dowlan remained a Christian Brother until 2008 and changed his name to Ted Bales in 2011 to separate himself from the earlier offending.

He was jailed again in 2015 after admitting to the abuse of another 20 boys.

The civil case is due to go before a jury next year, but parties will first have to attend mediation.

Barrister Geraldine Gray was in court representing Bishop of Ballarat Paul Bird, Archbishop of Melbourne Peter Comensoli and the Catholic Education Commission, who are also named in the suit.

Michael Magazanik, representing the man, said there was no question the abuse occurred and his client had been compensated for it previously.

It was not a complicated case, he said.

Ms Gray noted there were specific allegations made against each defendant which would take time to address.

Pell is facing a number of civil suits in the Supreme Court, on top of his criminal matters.

He faced the Court of Appeal this week in a bid to overturn his December conviction on five charges for abusing two 13-year-old choirboys at St Patrick's Cathedral in 1996.

Pell was jailed in March and is serving a six-year sentence, with a minimum three years and eight months.

It is Gerry Harvey of Harvey Norman who forced the government’s hand to introduce GST on purchases under $1000 made from overseas websites.

You see, Gerry, who is really quite poor, was contemptuous that he was missing out on the extra profits he so desperately needed, so lobbied the government to apply the tax WHICH COSTS MORE TO ADMINISTER THAN IS COLLECTED. So if you follow this to it’s natural conclusion, the government (you and me) spend more money than we make charging GST so Gerry can make more sales and money. We should just let him pay less tax and we’ll all be happy.

After Assange’s Espionage Act Indictment, Police Move Against More Journalists for Publishing Classified Material

RP from QRes#8559

Less than two months after the arrest of journalist Julian Assange, and two weeks after his indictment under the Espionage Act, emboldened governments have sent the police after journalists who’ve challenged the state. Joe Lauria reports.

By Joe Lauria

in Sydney, Australia

Special to Consortium News

Following the arrest and Espionage Act indictment of Julian Assange a number of police actions against journalists for publishing classified information and other journalistic activity has heightened fears among mainstream journalists that they could be next.

Police in Sydney, Australia on Wednesday raided the offices of the taxpayer-funded Australian Broadcasting Corporation, copying thousands of files related to a 2017 ABC broadcast that revealed allegations of war crimes by Australian special forces in Afghanistan.

Three Australian Federal Police officers and three police technicians entered ABC’s Sydney headquarters with a search warrant that named two ABC investigative journalists and the network’s news director. The police demanded to look through the journalists’ emails, ABC reported.

David Anderson, the ABC managing director, said it was “highly unusual for the national broadcaster to be raided in this way”.

“This is a serious development and raises legitimate concerns over freedom of the press and proper public scrutiny of national security and Defence matters,” he said. “The ABC stands by its journalists, will protect its sources and continue to report without fear or favour on national security and intelligence issues when there is a clear public interest.” John Lyons, ABC’s executive editor and head of investigative journalism, tweeted:

Lyons said the federal police were going through dozens of emails with the authority to delete or even change their content. Protagonist Winston Smith’s job in Orwell’s 1984 was to rewrite news archives.

“I recall writing ages ago about Australian legislation giving the Australian govt power to ‘add, alter or delete’ targeted material,” Australian psychologist and social critic Lissa Johnson told Consortium News.“The msm barely batted an eyelid at the time. Now that power is being wielded against the ABC.”

Gaven Morris, ABC’s news director, said: “Journalism is not a crime.”

“Our journalists do a really difficult job, I’m proud of what they do, they do it in the public’s interest,” he said. “I’d say to all the journalists at the ABC and all the journalists across Australia, don’t be afraid of the job you do.”….

Australian newspaper running a hit-piece on DJT re Central Park 5.

RP from QRes#8570

Donald Trump’s role in the tragedy of the Central Park Five case -

It was a sickening case that became infamous. And now a director refuses to let President Trump forget his role in the wrongful conviction of the Central Park Five.


Donald Trump, then a real estate tycoon who had recently shot to prominence in the city due to his ghostwritten book The Art Of The Deal, paid $85,000 to run full-page ads in New York’s four daily papers: The New York Times, The Daily News, The New York Post, and New York Newsday. The same inflammatory 600-word diatribe, running May 1, 1989, across all four papers, was titled ‘Bring Back The Death Penalty. Bring Back Our Police’ and while it didn’t refer to the incident specifically, it referred to “roving bands of wild criminals” and called for the “criminals of every age” to be put to death. “I want to hate these muggers and murderers,’’ Trump wrote. “They should be forced to suffer and, when they kill, they should be executed for their crimes.’’

Rallying against a largely misunderstood quote from Mayor Koch that “hate and rancour should be removed from our hearts”, Trump called for zero policy sentencing.

“How can our great society tolerate the continued brutalisation of its citizens by crazed misfits?” the letter asks. “Criminals must be told that their CIVIL LIBERTIES END WHEN AN ATTACK ON OUR SAFETY BEGINS!”

Since then, he (Trump) has repeatedly reiterated the guilty verdict of the men, even though their convictions were vacated. Just this week, he alluded to the case again.

“Anyone associated with the 1994 Crime Bill will not have a chance of being elected,” he tweeted. “In particular, African-Americans will not be able to vote for you. I, on the other hand, was responsible for Criminal Justice Reform, which had tremendous support, & helped fix the bad 1994 Bill!”

The film’s director, Ava DuVernay, was quick to fire back: “The story people know is the lie that you told them. Your violent rhetoric fed tensions that led to the bill you pretend to distant yourself from. But you can’t hide from what you did to The Central Park Five. They were innocent. And they will have the last word.”

5 Discrepancies Call the Accuracy of Mueller’s Report Into Question

RP from QRes#8573

The Mueller report appears to have been carefully worded by the lawyers working under former special counsel Robert Mueller, and perhaps Mueller himself, in a manner designed to inflict political damage on President Donald Trump.

Additionally, we now know that sections of the report were also selectively edited to provide damaging portrayals. Examples include the representation of the transcript of a phone call between the president’s attorney, John Dowd, and the attorney for former national security adviser Michael Flynn, a letter from the attorney of an individual referenced in the Mueller report, and a sequence of dates concerning the meeting between Trump campaign adviser George Papadopoulos and Australian diplomat Alexander Downer.

Lastly, there are troubling and disturbing details surrounding a heavily used witness in the Mueller report, George Nader.

What makes these examples particularly notable is that access to the underlying material used in the Mueller report is extremely limited. In each of the instances where information is publicly available—documents released in the ongoing Flynn case, a rebuttal letter from lawyers for the individual mentioned in the Mueller report, and details surrounding the Papadopoulos case—they highlight inconsistencies, thereby raising concerns that Mueller’s report may be hiding many more such problems.

Rep. Devin Nunes (R-Calif.) highlighted the Dowd transcript in a May 31 tweet, saying, “This is why we need all backup and source documentation for the #muellerdossier released publicly. It’s all a fraud…”

Chinese warships collect baby formula in Australia

Chinese warships that docked unexpectedly at an Australian port departed with a cargo of baby formula, local media discovered.

The arrival of a trio of Chinese ships, including an amphibious assault vessel, set off alarm bells on Monday morning among Australian citizens who did not have advance notice of the visit and analysts who regarded it as a show of force. But the trip also highlighted China’s vulnerabilities, as Chinese sailors were photographed loading baby formula onto the ships before they departed.

“What some Chinese colleagues were saying about ‘realistic socialism’ as true state of affairs in their country, and best epitomized here: advanced warships that project the State's might while sailors cope with tainted food products back home,” Collin Koh, a research fellow at the Institute of Defense and Strategic Studies in Singapore, commented in a Friday night tweet.

China was rocked by a scandal involving tainted baby formula in 2008, when testing showed that a toxic chemical was being used in milk powder that resulted in the death of six children and illness for 300,000 more, including more than 50,000 babies who required hospitalization.

“On Thursday, on the eve of the ships’ departure for China, People’s Liberation Army personnel were seen loading dozens of boxes full of A2 platinum and Aptamil formula on board,” the Weekend Australian, which photographed the sailors, explained. “Baby formula made in Australia, the US and Europe has been highly sought in China for the past decade.”

The arrival of the three ships stirred a controversy in Australia, in part because Prime Minister Scott Morrison’s government did not warn local officials to expect the warships. Their trip was billed as a routine visit while returning from the Middle East.

“Chinese naval visits to Australia have more typically been a lone frigate, not a task group with an amphibious assault ship and 700 personnel,” Rory Medcalf, the head of Australian National University’s National Security College, said this week. “Sydney is hardly a convenient stopover on their way home from the Gulf of Aden.”

AFP media raids: defence agencies refuse to say if minister was told before leaks referred to police

Defence agencies are refusing to say whether they consulted with the then defence minister Marise Payne before referring leaks of classified information to the Australian federal police.

The AFP has confirmed that it began its investigations into the ABC’s report of alleged unlawful killings by Australian troops in Afghanistan and Annika Smethurst’s report of plans to extend spy powers after it received referrals from agency heads in July 2017 and August 2018 respectively.

Payne was the relevant minister for both the defence department and the Australian Signals Directorate at the time of the referrals.

Both agencies refused to respond to questions from Guardian Australia about whether they had consulted with Payne before asking the AFP to investigate, with the Department of Defence saying it would be “inappropriate” to respond.

The ongoing secrecy over the handling of the raids comes as the AFP faces the possibility of two inquiries into its widely condemned actions when parliament resumes next month. The chair of the committee overseeing law enforcement agencies, Craig Kelly, has pledged to review the AFP’s conduct, while crossbench senators are also pushing for a separate Senate probe.

Labor’s shadow home affairs minister, Kristina Keneally, has said a Senate inquiry is “an option open to the opposition”, but it would still require the full support of the crossbench to become a reality.

The ABC is also considering taking legal action over the raid, its chair confirmed on Monday. Ita Buttrose said the broadcaster had consulted lawyers about its options but had not “briefed anybody yet”.

“At this point, we’re really assessing the allegations to see what actions can be taken and we want to make sure that we’re in the strongest available position to defend ourselves and also our journalists,” Buttrose told ABC radio.

Matthew Collins QC, president of the Victorian Bar Council, confirmed he had been retained by the ABC but could not comment further.

Buttrose also said she would be meeting with the prime minister, Scott Morrison, about the raid this week.

“I’m not going to tell the prime minister what to do but I will tell him how we feel at the ABC and how I feel,” she said.

The home affairs minister, Peter Dutton, has claimed the AFP’s investigation happened at “arm’s length” from the government, saying he had been aware that the investigation was under way, but had no prior knowledge of the media raids.

Under the AFP’s guidelines, matters where the execution of a search warrant may have “politically sensitive implications” should be raised with the minister responsible for the AFP, by the relevant minister or department at the time of the referral.

“This enables the government to be informed at the earliest juncture of potentially politically contentious matters that may require investigation by the AFP,” the guidelines state.

As the government faces sustained pressure over the nature of the raids, former defence secretary and former head of ASIO Dennis Richardson said agencies needed to be “cautious” about referrals to the AFP.

“If you refer a matter to the AFP they take control of that, and it goes where it goes – they drop some, they pursue others,” Richardson told ABC radio.

“This one … was a matter referred to them two years ago and it pops out of the woodwork now. That to me is not unusual, but I do think that it points to the fact that you need to be cautious in what you refer to the AFP if you don’t want it to surprise you down the track.”

He said he understood the “emotional reaction” to the raids, but believed it was “misplaced” to suggest the AFP was trying to intimidate the media.

“It might have had the consequence of that, but everything I know about the AFP would lead me to believe that the AFP is not in the space of deliberately setting out to intimidate the media.”

Found on twatter

Rod Dreher



Just heard from a clerical source I trust that 3 yrs ago, #CardinalPell was describing how much hidden money he'd found investigating Vatican Bank. Someone present said, “Your Eminence, don’t you fear for your life?” Pell responded, “No, they will destroy my reputation.”


Cardinal Pell & The Mafia

By ROD DREHER • June 6, 2019


In 2014, Pell was given by Pope Francis responsibility for cleaning up the infamously corrupt Vatican Bank. When that news broke, I thought, “They’ll find some way to take him out. They won’t let him do it.” When the child abuse charges were brought against Pell in 2017, I thought, “So that’s how they did it.” But I didn’t go further, because how would I prove that Pell was set up? It was just a hunch.

When I was in Australia last month, I found myself in a conversation one evening with someone about all this. (I had a lot of Pell conversations, as you might imagine.) I shared with my interlocutor my suspicion that Pell was set up to take him off the Vatican Bank case. The man across the table said, “That’s interesting. You may not know it, but the ‘Ndrangheta is quite well established in Australia, especially in Victoria. That’s where the cardinal was charged.”

The ‘Ndrangheta is the Calabrian mafia, and yes, they are well established in Australia. They control organized crime on Australia’s East Coast, and are said to have infiltrated every part of the Australian establishment. With that in mind, here’s an interesting bit of news, from the Irish Times, Nov. 16, 2013:

Senior Calabrian Mafia investigator Nicola Gratteri, whose investigative zeal has forced him to live with police protection since 1989, has said the pope’s plans to reform Vatican structures, including the Vatican bank, the IOR, could prove a problem for the ’Ndrangheta, Italy’s most powerful Mafia.

He said that while Pope John Paul II called on the “military” mafiosi to “repent” in 1993, Pope Francis has gone further, perhaps hitting the ’Ndrangheta where it hurts.

“He has named his G8 [council of cardinals] to overhaul the entire structure of the Vatican, including a review of the Vatican’s economic affairs and in particular, the IOR,” Gratteri says.

“For those with real economic power it is obvious this could be a huge disadvantage . . . Given that in the past we’ve had collusion at the highest level between church and Mafia, this exposes the pope.”

Months after this report, Cardinal George Pell was named by Francis to reform the IOR. In 2014, Pell said his team found nearly two billion euros hidden away in various Vatican accounts, off the balance sheets. In November 2015, with the Pope’s approval, Pell issued new guidelines for running all Vatican offices, to bring them up to international standards for financial transparency.

In April 2016, without consulting Pell, the Vatican Secretary of State suspends an external audit of Vatican finances. The National Catholic Register quotes an unnamed source as saying that officials are afraid of what the audit will find, and want to get rid of Pell. A year later, Pell was charged in Melbourne with sexual abuse. And that was the end of the Pell threat to the Vatican Bank insiders.

This mafia thing, it could all be a coincidence, and in any case, there are other factors in play in the persecution of George Pell, who was widely hated by Australian anti-clericalists. But it’s curious all the same. George Pell was the No. 1 enemy of the ‘Ndrangheta in the Vatican, and he showed early on in his tenure, when he uncovered all the hidden euros, that he meant business. Now George Pell sits in solitary confinement in a prison cell in Melbourne, convicted on pathetically shabby charges. The old guard in the Vatican won. The world is as it always was.

UPDATE: I have been told by someone very much in a position to know that the current head of the Vatican Bank is from Calabria. For what it’s worth…

Exposing Australia’s recycling lie | 60 Minutes Australia

There is no doubt Australia is one of the most wasteful nations in the world, so the practice of recycling helps to lessen our guilt. As we drag our bins out for collection each week, we feel like we’re helping the environment. But the reality is that we’re all being conned. Right now, Australia is stuck in an unsightly and worsening recycling crisis. What is being done with plastic waste, the material most people think would be easy to salvage and re-use, is of the greatest concern. As Liam Bartlett discovers, most of it ends up either being buried or worse – exported to countries like Malaysia, a place we are now treating like a garbage bin.

Why Mexico is the new China

RP from QRes#8590

The trade war represents a perfect opportunity for Australia to move away from its dependence on China and start thinking more globally, according to a former economic adviser to US president George W. Bush.

Pippa Malmgren believes Australia should start looking to areas such as Latin America as China begins to price itself out of the market.

"Mexico is the new China," she told The Australian Financial Review last week.

"Mexico's wages are 20 to 40 per cent cheaper but their quality control is American-standard. Australia has always linked itself to China, and China alone, but the whole rest of the world is building and making stuff now – why isn't Australia doing more business in Mexico?

"It made sense [to invest in China] when they were achieving this extraordinary competitiveness, but that ended a while ago."

Dr Malmgren, who was in Australia as part of AMP's Amplify festival, now heads commercial drone business H Robotics.

She said China's rapid growth had seen it become less competitive in the global landscape.

"I'm a manufacturer and I can make electronics in the UK as cheaply as in China but with much better quality control," she said.

"They have so lost their competitive edge, their quality control isn't good enough and their costs have gone through the roof."

"China's threatened to restrict the flow of refined rare earths metals and there's loads of rare earths all over the world but they're useless unless they're refined and we moved all the refining to China because it was so environmentally toxic we didn't want it in the west," she said.

"So suddenly, within weeks of this announcement, you see Lynas building the first rare earths refinery in the US in decades in Texas. So I suspect what we'll see is the rebuilding of the supply chains in the West now, and it's happening at a moment in history when China has priced itself out of the market and they're not very competitive anyway."

US submits formal extradition request for WikiLeaks’ Julian Assange – reports

RP from QRes#8599

The US Justice Department has formally submitted its extradition request for Julian Assange to the United Kingdom, American media report, citing government sources. The notice, which by law had to be provided to British authorities within 60 days following Assange’s arrest on April 11, was sent on Thursday, the Washington Post reports.

The whistleblower is set to appear in court on June 12, where his fate could be decided. In the US, the WikiLeaks co-founder is wanted on 18 counts, including charges under the Espionage Act for receiving and publishing top secret information obtained by former military intelligence analyst Chelsea Manning. If proven guilty, the Australian-born publisher could face up to 175 years in prison.

Assange continues to maintain his innocence while incarcerated in HM Prison Belmarsh following the suspension of his seven-year-long political asylum at the Ecuadorian embassy in London and his subsequent arrest two months ago.

To reduce reliance on China, US will team up with Canada and Australia to boost output of key minerals

RP from QRes#8607

The United States will team up with Canada and Australia to help countries around the world develop their reserves of minerals like lithium, copper and cobalt, the US State Department said on Tuesday, part of a multipronged strategy to reduce global reliance on China for materials crucial to hi-tech industries.

Washington grew more concerned recently about its dependence on mineral imports, especially the so-called rare earth minerals, after Beijing suggested using them as leverage in the trade war between the world’s largest economic powers. This would interrupt the manufacture of a wide range of consumer, industrial and military goods, including mobile phones, electric vehicles, batteries and fighter planes.

“Over 80 per cent of the global supply chain of rare earth elements … is controlled by one country,” the State Department said in a fact sheet outlining the effort, which it has dubbed the Energy Resource Governance Initiative.

“Reliance on any one source increases the risk of supply disruptions.”

Matriarch of alleged incest family Betty Colt bailed ahead of perjury trial

RP from QRes#8610

The matriarch of a family alleged to have engaged in incest over four generations has been released on bail by order of the Supreme Court ahead of her trial for allegedly trying to conceal the paternity of her children.

Supreme Court Justice Desmond Fagan ordered the release of the 52-year-old mother of 13, known by the pseudonym Betty Colt, saying that so far she has spent 14 months on remand and he could not “justify holding her in prison for what is likely to be longer than her ultimate penalty.”

“It is alleged that on a particular rural property where a large number of members of the family resided various adults engaged in encouraging children who were related to each other to engage in sexual acts.”

The eight Colt family members were arrested in simultaneous raids across NSW, Western Australia and South Australia in April 2018.

It was five years after their alleged incest was first uncovered when 12 children were removed from the Colt’s remote property near Yass in the NSW Southern Tablelands by police and welfare workers concerned the minors were being neglected.

Authorities found 38 Colt family members living “off-the-grid” in squalid conditions in a collection of tents, caravans and sheds.

The children were allegedly showing signs of neglect and sexualised behaviour. Some of them had never used a toothbrush or toilet paper and spoke in unintelligible speech.

Lads, about 90 minutes ago I was down at the river sitting on a bench after cycling and a camo military chopper appeared from the direction of the Perth Intl. Airport, banked near the Raffles, circled over Canning Hwy exit, circled near some construction twice and then headed in the direction of Fremantle or (I assume) Campbell Barracks and now I can see RAC rescue heading in the same direction, anyone know what's up? I took some shitty phone footage but it's nothing special. I'll cross-link to the main general too.

WikiLeaks founder Julian Assange a step closer to US extradition after Britain signs order

British Home Secretary Sajid Javid has signed an extradition order to send Julian Assange to the United States.

The US Justice Department this week formally requested Britain extradite Assange to face charges that he conspired to hack government computers and violated an espionage law.

Mr Javid told the BBC the final decision on Assange's extradition would be up to the court.

"There's an extradition request from the US that is before the courts tomorrow, but yesterday I signed the extradition order, certified it, and that will be going in front of the courts tomorrow," he said.

"It's a decision ultimately for the courts but there is a very important part of it for the Home Secretary and I want to see justice done at all times.

"We've got a legitimate extradition request so I've signed it, but the final decision is now with the courts."

Assange's lawyer Jennifer Robinson told the ABC the signing of the order was a normal part of the process and the extradition challenge now begins.

Assange wanted in US and Sweden

Assange, who is currently serving a 50-week jail sentence for skipping bail, is due to face court in London on Friday for the extradition hearing.

The United States has charged him with conspiracy to commit computer intrusion, which carries a maximum penalty of five years in prison.

US government counsel Ben Brandon previously told the Westminster Magistrates' Court the case against Assange involved one of the biggest compromises of classified information in history.

It included hundreds of thousands of activity reports relating to the Afghanistan and Iraq wars and 250,000 US diplomatic cables.

He is accused of conspiring with former US Army intelligence analyst Chelsea Manning to crack passwords to gain access to the information, which was subsequently posted on WikiLeaks.

Sweden has also reopened its own investigation into a 2010 rape allegation made against the WikiLeaks founder.

Earlier this month, the Uppsala District Court rejected a request from prosecutors to detain him in absentia.

However, the ruling does not mean the preliminary rape investigation must be abandoned, only that Assange won't be extradited to Sweden for now.

Assange was arrested by British police and carried from the Ecuadorean embassy after his South American hosts abruptly revoked his seven-year asylum in April.

UK Signs Julian Assange’s US Extradition Papers

RP from QRes#8621

The United Kingdom has signed an extradition request for WikiLeaks founder Julian Assange, who faces charges in the U.S. under the Espionage Act.

UK Home Secretary Sajid Javid said he signed the papers on Wednesday, a day after the U.S. Justice Department formally asked Britain to extradite the 47-year-old Australian.

“First of all I am very pleased the police were able to apprehend him and now he is rightly behind bars because he broke UK law,” Javid told BBC Radio 4 on Thursday.

“There is an extradition request from the U.S. that is before the courts tomorrow but yesterday I signed the extradition order and certified it and that will be going in front of the courts tomorrow,” he added.

The U.S. will detail all charges against Assange on Friday, when it seeks his extradition in a London court.

U.S. prosecutors initially charged Assange with a single count of computer intrusion, but last month added 17 new counts, including controversial charges under the Espionage Act for encouraging, receiving and publishing national defense information in concert with former Army intelligence analyst Chelsea Manning.

Such a charge under the Espionage Act has never been successfully prosecuted, according to CNN legal analyst Steve Vladeck.

Assange’s initial indictment sparked a debate over the First Amendment and whether his alleged role in procuring secret U.S. material constituted protected journalistic activity.

Assange lived inside the Ecuadorian embassy in London for seven years until April when the country revoked his protection and he was arrested.

Founder of The Family cult in Australia, Anne Hamilton-Byrne has passed away at 98

RP from QRes#8629 and article content added

Anne Hamilton-Byrne, the matriarch and co-founder of The Family cult, has reportedly died in a suburban nursing home in Melbourne.

Chris Johnston, an author who has followed the family closely, confirmed on Twitter on Friday the notorious figurehead had passed away.

She was 97 years old.

Hamilton-Byrne, who was a charismatic yoga instructor at the time, founded The Family in 1963 with Melbourne University academic Raynor Johnson.

She managed to operate the doomsday cult in near-total secrecy for the next two decades and amassed a following of almost 500 members.

Convinced she was the reincarnation of Jesus Christ, she acquired numerous children – some born to cult members and others through adoption scams – and raised them as her own.

The children, who at one point numbered up to 28, were isolated from the outside world on a property in Lake Eildon – dressed in matching outfits and given identical dyed blonde hair.

They were also allegedly beaten, starved, and upon reaching a certain age, given extreme doses of LSD as part of an initiation ritual.

The kids – who thought they were brothers and sisters – were rescued by police in 1987 after the increasing number of dodgy adoptions tipped them off.

Assange 'won't receive a fair trial' in the US

RP from QRes#8631


Julian Assange is set to face an extradition hearing in the UK on Friday, which could ultimately see him sent to the United States to face trial.

The Australian Wikileaks founder was evicted two months ago after spending seven years as a political asylum at the Ecuadorian Embassy in London.

Retired intelligence officer John Kiriakou has been in a similar position to Assange, spending two years in prison for leaking classified information.

Mr Kiriakou told Sky News he does not think Julian Assange will receive a fair trial if he is extradited to the United States, and says ‘no national security defendant has ever won a case in this courtroom.’

The former intelligence officer says if Mr Assange goes to trial ‘it will be a case that future generations of law students study.’

He says the press ‘keeps the government honest’, and the Australian's case is an infringement on basic rights of freedom of speech and freedom of press.

Have been contacted by about a dozen Australian journalists for comment on Clinton errand boy, Alexander Downer, and him being idiotic enough to spy on me with his phone. The transcript of my meeting with him will show Australia was willfully trying to sabotage Donald Trump.


It is in Australia’s interest to throw Downer under the bus quickly and release the recorded transcripts of my meeting with him for both the Australian and American public to see. He will forever be remembered as the fool who almost torpedoed the US-Australia relationship.

Alexander Downer (AU) and Sir Richard Dearlove (UK) are HRC Deep State on our Planet, and are "the" Main Masters of these 2 "Friendly" nations to America, THAT USED ALL THEIR POLITICAL POWER AND SPY AGENCIES TO HELP SET-UP TRUMP AND COUP AMERICA!

Notice these so called "friendly" nations, refused to remove them from their covering up their crimes, and their nations 100% support their Coup of America Attempt? Ask yourself, if they were fluke rogue criminals, why are they still in their positions, and not removed? See how our friends and really our enemies? Deep State is not only in US, but the entire world, in their NWO attempt to control the world.

They each need to be arrested, and Interpol deliver them to the US for TRIAL! If found guilty, they need to be put to immediate death, for using their Nations Power to COUP AMERICA! I would be nice and force their families to sit in the front row and watch as the lever is pulled, and they drop to break their necks! Need to film their families reaction to their Treasonous Satanic Loved ones, and those photos a warning to all other Nations and people, who attempt to Coup America and Our President!

The latest episode in the made-for-television series future historians will name “American Goes Insane”, began airing this week when President Donald Trump gave an interview wherein he said he’d consider taking intelligence dirt about a rival from a friendly ally—a familiar plot script as this is EXACTLY what the Obama Regime did, in 2016, when it accepted unsolicited information from ALEXANDER DOWNER, an Australian diplomat who just happened to have helped arrange a $25 million government donation to the Clinton Foundation—and that saw Downer providing “intelligence dirt” with his claiming that he had witnessed a Trump campaign aide, George Papadopoulos, bragging about some dirt that the Russians supposedly had on Democratic candidate Hillary Clinton.

Remember, US could not spy upon its, and BO used Italy, UK and AU Deep State HRC operatives to set up Trump, and us their spy agencies, in their nations, to do it for BO. This way, DS agents placed in powerful positions all over the world, would Set Up and and all False Flags to force all nations into doing what they would to rule the world.

Downer placed the 2nd needed nail into the fake "Evidence" as being Verified by the AU spy agency, to cross verify it was a valid Russian link, which was known a lie to all in this setup plot.

Sir Richard Billing Dearlove crminal HRC Deep State controller inside the UK, was the physical spy agency who verified all information, and physically did the "Wire Tapping" of Trump towers and everyone.

This is WHY all the 300+ UNMASKINGS BY BO's criminal chick Diplomate, who had no power to Unmask anyone, yet the did! I think here name was Samantha Powers? You know, that Ambassador/Diplomate who did that mass unmasking of American Citizens/

Explains why that BO just happened to work with one crminal DEARLOVE to dig dirt on US citizens, and given directly to him by this unmasking.

Get the picture yet? Answers all your questions WHY that US lady unmasked ALL 300+, which she was never allowed to do, because one DEARLOVE needed to connect the dots ON HIS SPY AGENCY, he overseen, wire tapping Trump!

It was the UK criminal DS spy agency who did all the physical spying, and one DOWNER worked with DEARLOVE, and they double teamed Trumps Coup, hand in hand, for HRC/BO. DOWNER was their from the start, and lied to place the needed 2nd confirmation nail of it being real, but they were both part of the HRC/BO Deep State, and used each of their most secret spy agencies against Trump and America, to Overthrow America!

Their hands were all over this, and need to be charged and tried on US Soil. Death to their heads, with giving their families front row seats to their deaths…

Mifsud, Downer and Halper were all part of the same operation. Halper got involved to cover for Downer so that he wouldn’t get burned the way he did by having me “repeat” Mifsud. In the end, the CIA/FBI burned three of its assets, likely more, to try and frame me. Boomerang time.

Bob Hawke memorial service draws thousands to Sydney Opera House for 'very Australian celebration'

The master of ceremonies, former Labor minister Craig "Emmo" Emerson, probably summed it up best while listing the dignitaries in attendance.

"Albo, ScoMo, Emmo — a very Australian celebration," he told a packed Sydney Opera House.

"And, this is a celebration."

Thousands of people gathered inside the harbourside icon and at its forecourt to pay tribute to former prime minister Bob Hawke, who died aged 89 on May 16.

Among them were Mr Hawke's widow Blanche d'Alpuget, his family, and a slew of politicians, diplomats and dignitaries.

The Opera House was a fitting place to farewell Mr Hawke, who launched his first campaign there in 1983.

He would go on to win four elections.

There were five former prime ministers in attendance, including Tony Abbott, who was last month criticised for claiming Mr Hawke had a "Liberal head" the day after his death.

Paul Keating, Mr Hawke's former long-time treasurer who rolled him for the nation's top job after a 1991 leadership challenge, spoke at the service.

The pair's relationship broke down after Mr Hawke was dumped but they reconciled last year and had begun to meet regularly.

"Bob and I would have private skirmishes over this policy or that, even criticise one another to immediate staff," Mr Keating said.

"But by instinct and a very large dollop of friendship, we always remained wedded to the same objective, a point even the closest of our staff sometimes fail to comprehend.

"I'm not sure they knew how stuck together we were."

Ms d'Alpuget said her late husband's death had sparked a "national outpouring of grief".

"With today's transformative service, we smile again, we glow with pride for the presence among us for almost 90 years of a great human being," she said.

'His moral compass did not waver'

Prime Minister Scott Morrison, the first speaker at the service, said the 1980s in Australia would always be "the Hawke era".

"Our 23rd prime minister was a proud and faithful son of the Labor movement," he said.

"He became one of the proud fathers of our modern Australia."

Former Labor leader Kim Beazley, the Governor of Western Australia, delivered the eulogy and asked: "Was he our greatest prime minister, or our greatest Labor prime minister?"

"Bob told me he was neither.

"His aspiration was to be our greatest peacetime prime minister."

The loudest applause was saved for the Sydney Symphony Orchestra and Sydney Philharmonia Choir's rendition of the Hallelujah Chorus.

Mr Hawke had conducted Handel's famous oratorio at the same venue 10 years ago for his 80th birthday, and a video of that moment was beamed over the stage.

He was remembered as a larrikin with an unwavering commitment to his job.

Federal Labor leader Anthony Albanese said Mr Hawke was "no shrinking violet", and a man who wanted to protect Australia from "those who sought to divide us".

"Yet when he was up against those forces of division, his moral compass did not waiver," Mr Albanese said.

"Beneath that cloud of hair, the sunshine would give way to lightning and to thunder.

"But the sunshine always returned and his positivity changed the nation for the better."

Look back at how the memorial service unfolded.

Senator Bill Heffernan uses parliamentary privilege to accuse a former PM of being alleged paedophile

21 Oct 2015

Liberal senator Bill Heffernan has used parliamentary privilege to accuse an unnamed former prime minister of being an alleged paedophile, while also pointing the finger at the judiciary.

Senator Heffernan has been campaigning for the Royal Commission into Institutional Responses to Child Sexual Abuse to expand its investigation to include the court system.

He told Senate estimates on Tuesday that he had given the commission "very disturbing" police documents that named at least 28 alleged paedophiles, some of whom are prominent Australians.

But he said the commission had told him it could not investigate the cases because they were outside its terms of reference.

"We have in Australia, sadly, a compromise at the highest of levels. There is a former prime minister on this list and it is a police document, " he told senators.

"It's not so much the secret that's the problem, it's when a group of people, such as the 28 people on this page, keep each other's secrets that the institution is compromised."

Senator Heffernan did not expand on the allegations or provide any further details, instead focusing on what he believed were the failings of the "the institution of the law".

"The treatment in the federal jurisdiction of children by some people in the Family Law Court is disgusting and a disgrace," he said.

Attorney-General George Brandis suggested the royal commission could look into the "grave matters" raised by the senator but said it was ultimately up to the commissioner to decide.

"The royal commission has a process for dealing with complaints and other information brought to its attention and placed into its hands by citizens," he said.

"It is for the royal commission to judge whether, by reference to its terms of reference, that information is something that it should or indeed is capable of inquiring further into."
