Tyranny coming our way…
Sweeping new vaccine mandates for 100 million Americans
Speaking at the White House, Biden sharply criticized the tens of millions of Americans who are not yet vaccinated, despite months of availability and incentives.
“We’ve been patient. But our patience is wearing thin, and your refusal has cost all of us,” he said, all but biting off his words. The unvaccinated minority “can cause a lot of damage, and they are.”
"The vast majority of Americans are doing the right thing.”
"We're in a tough stretch, and it could last for a while."
"We are going to protect vaccinated workers from unvaccinated co-workers."
“This is not about freedom or personal choice. It's about protecting those around you."
The Department of Labor’s Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) is developing a rule that will require all employers with 100 or more employees to ensure their workforce is fully vaccinated or require any workers who remain unvaccinated to produce a negative test result on at least a weekly basis before coming to work. OSHA will issue an Emergency Temporary Standard (ETS) to implement this requirement. This requirement will impact over 80 million workers in private sector businesses with 100+ employees. <Source>
Tyrannical government control is now being tested in freedom-loving Australia...
(1) In Darwin, Australia…
Darwin, Australia Adopts China’s Tech for Total Social Control
Australia is preparing to debut its version of the Chinese regime’s high-tech system for monitoring and controlling its citizens. The launch, to take place in the northern city of Darwin, will include systems to monitor people’s activity via their cell phones.
The new system is based on monitoring programs in Shenzhen, China, where the Chinese Communist Party (CCP) is testing its Social Credit System. Officials on the Darwin council traveled to Shenzhen, according to NT News, to “have a chance to see exactly how their Smart Technology works prior to being fully rolled out.”
In Darwin, they’ve already constructed “poles, fitted with speakers, cameras and Wi-Fi,” according to NT News, to monitor people, their movements around the city, the websites they visit, and what apps they use. The monitoring will be done mainly by artificial intelligence, but will alert authorities based on set triggers.
Just as in China, the surveillance system is being branded as a “smart city” program, and while Australian officials claim its operations are benign, they’ve announced it functions to monitor cell phone activity and “virtual fences” that will trigger alerts if people cross them.
“We’ll be getting sent an alarm saying, ‘There’s a person in this area that you’ve put a virtual fence around.’ … Boom, an alert goes out to whatever authority, whether it’s us or police to say ‘look at camera five,’” said Josh Sattler, the Darwin council’s general manager for innovation, growth, and development services, according to NT News.
The nature of the “virtual fences” and what type of activity will sound an alarm still isn’t being made clear.
The system is being promoted as mostly benign. Sattler said it will tell the government “where people are using Wi-Fi, what they’re using Wi-Fi for, are they watching YouTube, etc. All these bits of information we can share with businesses. … We can let businesses know, ‘Hey, 80 percent of people actually use Instagram within this area of the city, between these hours.’”
The CCP’s smart city Social Credit System is able to monitor each person in the society, tracking every element of their lives—including their friends, online purchases, daily behavior, and other information—and assigns each person a citizen score that determines their level of freedom in society.
The tool is a core piece of the CCP’s programs to monitor and persecute dissidents, including religious believers and people who oppose the ruling communist system. <Source>
(2) In New South Wales…
‘One Stop Shop’ Vaccine Passport and Check In App for Australian State NSW
The Australian state of New South Wales (NSW) is developing a “one-stop-shop” app for residents to use as a type of vaccine passport when checking in to venues with QR codes.
The new app will be piloted in early October, making it easier to deny entry to unvaccinated people, and making it more “seamless” for fully vaccinated people to show proof and check-in
“Technically, a lot of venues won’t let you check-in, because you won’t be vaccinated,” NSW Premier Gladys Berejiklean told reporters on Tuesday. “So this product means that when you put your QR code on a cafe or restaurant, it will say you’re vaccinated, and you’ll be allowed into the venue.”
The premier said the whole point was “having a one-stop-shop on your phone” for both checking in when visiting a location or venue and showing proof of immunisation, which she said makes it easier for businesses and for the government’s contact tracers.
The NSW government’s app will play a major role in life for the state’s residents once implemented.
From Monday, fully vaccinated residents in NSW will be granted some additional freedoms, such as one extra hour of outdoor exercises.
Until the new app is ready, people will need to use the federal government’s Medicare app to show proof of being immunised against COVID-19, the disease caused by the CCP (Chinese Communist Party) virus.
“I just want to make this point very clear: if people want to enjoy the things that we’ve missed, such as a meal or any … venue, they’re going to have to be vaccinated,” the premier said. <Source>
(3) The National Firearms Agreement (NFA)
The National Firearms Agreement (NFA) was an agreement concerning firearm control made by Australasian Police Ministers' Council (APMC) in 1996, in response to the Port Arthur massacre that killed 35 people. Four days after the killings, the Australian Prime Minister John Howard told the parliament “We need to achieve a total prohibition on the ownership, possession, sale and importation of all automatic and semi-automatic weapons. That will be the essence of the proposal that will be put by the Commonwealth government at the meeting on Friday...". The laws to give effect to the Agreement were passed by Australian State governments only 12 days after the Port Arthur massacre.
The NFA placed tight control on semi-automatic and fully automatic weapons, although permitted their use by a small number of licensed individuals who required them for a purpose other than 'personal protection'. The act included a gun buy-back provision. <Source>
(4) Compulsory voting
Voting is Compulsory
The Commonwealth Electoral Act 1918, under section 245(1), states: "It shall be the duty of every elector to vote at each election".
Under the Electoral Act, the actual duty of the elector is to attend a polling place, have their name marked off the certified list, receive a ballot paper and take it to an individual voting booth, mark it, fold the ballot paper and place it in the ballot box.
On a related matter, it is also an offence under the Electoral Act to remove a ballot paper from a polling place.
As voting is compulsory, electors are given a number of ways to cast their vote at an election, including postal voting, pre-poll voting, absent voting, voting at Australian overseas missions and voting at mobile teams at hospitals and nursing homes and in remote localities, as well as ordinary voting at a polling place in their electorate.
Because of the secrecy of the ballot, it is not possible to determine whether a person has completed their ballot paper prior to placing it in the ballot box. It is therefore not possible to determine whether all electors have met their legislated duty to vote. It is, however, possible to determine that an elector has attended a polling place or mobile polling team (or applied for a postal vote, pre-poll vote or absent vote) and been issued with a ballot paper. <Source>
A free vote is one not tainted by a “you must attend” edict, and it is only a matter of time until you are forced to use your new phone-based voting app to cast your ballot. Even though the communications between the application and the server may be heavily encrypted, at some point, your vote is decrypted and processed. Those government workers doing the counting, therefore, control the system.

Australia’s Top Court Finds Media Companies Liable for Other People’s Facebook Comments
Decision could hinder the promoting of important public-interest journalism, legal experts say
Australia’s highest court found that newspapers and television stations that post articles on Facebook Inc.’s platform are liable for other Facebook users’ comments on those posts, a ruling that could prompt traditional publishers to rethink how they engage with social media.
The High Court of Australia determined that media companies, by creating a public Facebook page and posting content on that page, facilitated and encouraged comments from other users on those posts. That means the media companies should be considered publishers of the comments and are therefore responsible for any defamatory content that appears in them, according to a summary of the judgment from the court.
Some legal experts expressed concerns about the ruling. Jason Bosland, an associate professor at the University of Melbourne’s law school, said it could hinder the ability of media companies to promote important public-interest journalism. Mr. Bosland said even moderating comments in real time wouldn’t be enough to completely shield newspapers from liability, because the ruling effectively means media companies are responsible for people’s comments the instant they are posted.
“I think it chills the capacity for the media to produce stories which provoke public discussion, and that’s exactly what you want the media to do,” he said. “You want them to be able to put up stuff online and you want them to be able to encourage people to engage in a civilized public debate.” <Source>
(6) New World Order?
AUSTRALIA'S HEALTH OFFICIAL LOOKS FORWARD TO THE NEW WORLD ORDER. YES, SHE ACTUALLY SAID 'NEW WORLD ORDER'
Australia's public health chief, Dr. Kerry Chant, in a press conference about Australia's lockdowns, referred to the new world order.
"We will be looking at what contact tracing looks like in the New World Order … yes, it will be pubs and clubs and other things if we have a positive case there."
Point of information. Dr. Kant is the same specimen who told Aussies not to talk to people during the few opportunities they were allowed to go outside. <Source>
Is this a test to see if China can infiltrate and control foreign sovereign countries using government proxies, some of whom may have been compromised by Chinese intelligence operatives using the standard money, sex, power, or blackmail?
When asked about how Biden's new initiative would impact Americans’ lives, Presidential spokesperson Jen Psaki said that “it depends on if you’re vaccinated or not.”
The government has already stripped parental rights from responsible, caring parents, even for life-altering actions with potential adverse consequences.
The Delta variant may have washed through much of the population when the government plan is implemented.
The “mu (pronounced "me" in Greek) variant of COVID-19 has already spread to nearly four dozen countries and has made its presence known in Hawaii and Alaska. It has been found in 49 states, with Nebraska being the only state not to have a mu variant case detected. Health officials believe mu is even more transmissible than the delta variant and has the potential to resist vaccines.”
Being a somewhat, ok, majorly cynical person, I must wonder how much of the Covid response will drive the same type of voting rules that allowed major fraud to “infect” the 2020 election and may be used in the 2022 and 2024 elections?
ASK YOURSELF ONE QUESTION: What better vehicle than COVID contact tracing exists that could legally surveil the activities of domestic American citizens using a public-private partnership between the government and tech tyrants?
Since everything could theoretically be linked to “public health,” will we see restaurants forced to serve low-calorie meals to citizens with high body mass indexes? Possibly demanding an hour's worth of timed exercise before being authorized to eat a dessert?
It appears that at the present, our brothers and sisters in Australia may be slightly more screwed than us Americans. But under the progressive communist democrats, we may be on the fast track to hell or authoritarian socialism as the case may be.
