“Those who would give up Essential Liberty, to purchase a little Temporary safety, deserve neither Liberty nor Safety” -Benjamin Franklin (Australia Matters) While Tony and his mates take more of our liberties, real terrorists head down to the local electronics shop or eBay and buy cheap $80 disposable WiFi computer tablets. Quick trip to McDonald’s and or […] […]

A historical review of anti-terrorism legislation in Australia

(Truth News Radio) Today we look at the recent history of anti-terrorism legislation in Australia. We demonstrate that the term “anti-terrorism” is a euphemism for “anti-democratic”, since the substance of all these laws is to roll back and undermine the essential principles of law in a democratic society, such as the presumption of innocence, the […] […]

Un-elected Attorney General Wants Your Computer Passwords

(AustraliaMatters) I though this young lady was nuts when I first heard this. She’s not. Read the main stream source report from here where even a taxation trained ass clown in the Treasury department is supporting privacy thievery. If ASIO gets too busy spying on we Australians, the plan seems to be give the work […] […]

The “G-d Gene” Cure?

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=nADFJlAggnY (AustraliaMatters) Have a listen to this effeminate nerd with generic eye problems proposing the US Pentagon use a “virus” to cure “religious fundamentalists” of their “G-d gene”. Remember the 1948 religious fundamentalist group called the Irgun? They shot their way into Palestine because of the “G-d gene”. The effeminate nerd calls this virus the “funvac”. I though […] […]

Yahoo Info Bombs

We’ve been a bit slack not posting bad news here of late. We’ve been spending time posting replies to main stream news reports on a main stream news site, Yahoo news.

Big Brother gongs go out for privacy wrongs

(SMH) TWENTY-SEVEN years ago the world envisaged by George Orwell seemed far-fetched. But when the Privacy Foundation announced its Big Brother Awards for this year, the range of contenders would probably have made Orwell proud. ”We already have Newspeak, we’ve got TV which at the moment doesn’t look at us, but that’s not far off. There’s two-way communication on the streets … There’s GPS,” said Julie Cameron, co-ordinator of the awards. The foundation’s spoof awards for privacy intruders seek to draw attention to privacy invasions.This year’s winners include Facebook (worst corporate invader), airport body scanners (most invasive technology) and Google’s previous chief executive Eric Schmidt who said Street View’s data collection had caused ”no harm” (boot in the mouth award).

Cue the Mastercard music — Sydney Morning Herald (SMH) reporting “Newspeak” manipulation awards? Priceless!

Internet filter on track for July 2011: Conroy

wood wedge.jpg(ARN) Communications Minister, Senator Stephen Conroy, claims the voluntary Internet filter is on track for implementation by Optus, Telstra and iPrimus this year and has denied any suggestion it's on the backburner. read more

Voluntary? Yes, for the ISP's. We'll have to wait and see if ISP's, Optus, Telstra and iPrimus give their customers the same choice, cough cough, seemingly removing Conroy from the firing line. Future Conroy comment prediction: "Ow dang pass the parcel ma — the decision to filter was made by the three largest ISP backbones, not poor old little me!"

Move over WW2 IBM: HP is in town.

(ZNet) Video source and article

(AustraliaMatters) Most of you are using a computer right now where your PRIVATE files that belong to you, are stored on the private computer that belongs to you — That is GOOD — That is NORMAL! On the other hand net nanny police state boss Stephen Conroy is on the "cloud" wagon promoting our private computer files be stored at GOVERNMENT kosher "data collection centers". Stalin and Hitler would be very very jealous of Stephen conman. We know for a fact that non-government IBM (whom cataloged WW2 prisoners) have a whole floor in a high rise building on the Gold Coast that "data collects" on citizens. Private NGO companies being allowed to spy and hold private files and thoughts is so very very wrong. These aren't new examples. Do you see what is being built up around us and supported by smiley faced bureaucrats? Now non-government HP and a 54x sized tennis court information collection and storage center in Sydney? Do you see where this is going?

Accurate 1993 predictions from AT&T “You Will” Ads

(AustraliaMatters) This was 18 years ago — Computers in 1993 were running primitive Windows 3.1 So called "elite" (usury banksters) are also wanting a cashless society whereby the global sheeple are implanted with computer microchips to be better tracked and traced with the same AT&T like computing technologies. Below are two comments we like on the YouTube channel where this video is hosted…

"Have you ever been trapped in a multi-year contract that promises you unlimited data transfer, but later get your bandwidth capped? You will. And the company that will bring it to you? AT&T."

The next comment says it all about these wonderful big brother companies…

"Have you ever had your phone company participate in a criminal conspiracy to let the government spy on your phone calls without a warrant? You will."
