Newman!

Former Footy Show star Sam Newman and others are being “actively investigated” by police for encouraging a quarter of a million Melbourne residents to protest against Stage Four lockdown…

Victoria Police told 7 News they were “actively investigating those responsible for coordinating and encouraging protest activity on Saturday”.

“Victoria Police expects to make further arrests over coming days in respect to individuals suspected of inciting illegal activity,” police said in a statement. “Organising and participating in this protest would be a serious and blatant breach of the Chief Health Officer’s directions and jeopardises the health of the entire community…”

Newman, 74, could face the same fate as a number of other Victorians who have attempted to organise protests in recent months.

[T]here is no evidence that there was any spread from the Black Lives Matter protest.” – Professor Paul Kelly

 
Good onya, Sam. The Australian death toll from coronavirus has now reached the 650 mark. That’s not far off about half of the annual national road toll. Nearly 3000 people die every year from accidental falls. As statistics in epidemiology go, coronavirus in the largely uninhabited island of Australia is not even a blip on a blip. The most remarkable sub-statistic is this: only 87 people have died of the virus who were not living under the rule of Daniel Andrews and Victoria Police. As I wrote at the start of this “pandemic,” Australia is the easiest COVID gig in the world. Only a negligent imbecile or a sociopath could have screwed it up.

    People are beginning to wake up. They just need to realize that this is the biggest con in history. A CCP/WHO orchestrated hoax. Amazing how banning hydroxychloroquine is part of the deal. Now protests are banned.

    Rowan Dean’s interview with Canadian Dr Kulvinder Kaur Gill hits the real issues Clearly this is worldwide conspiracy by the CCP to bring down as many countries as possible, kill Trump, and put in the CCP paid and bought Democrats into power. Tedros Adhanom Grebreyesus, the director general of WHO is an Ethiopian communist and the CCP’s lapdog.

    But here in Australia certain doctors are claiming to be experts and have to be obeyed. They claim they know that hydroxychloroquine inefficacious when it comes to treating people with coronavirus. Ever heard of iatrogenesis? How about false diagnosis? If doctors saved lives, how come people are not living to 150 yrs of age. But peoples’ lives are more important than people’s rights. Bullshit!!! Without rights, you may as well as have no life.

    I thought the people always had the right to “Peacefully Protest”
    How can it be a crime to organise a Peaceful Protest.
    Apparently now it is against the law to protest.
    So, it is against the law to protest against the same freaking law.
    If the Victorians – the stupid ones – elect this Andrews feller again, I don’t care what happens to them. I really don’t.
    And if the Victorians – the not-so-stupid ones don’t organise a protest against the Police (if ever it is legal to do so again) then I don’t care what happens to them either.
    If one thing has come out of this is the absolute criminality of the Police Hierarchy, and, it seems in many cases, some Police Officers themselves.
    When the Police allow the Police to break the law, there is no Police, and you can’t tell me there is no law against Police assaulting someone.
    The shit will hit the fan when they shoot someone, and that seems to be only a matter of time.
    After all, the dingoes need Six to bash up a mentally disturbed man, then torture him, what happens when there is only five of the pricks?

    re 29 Aug Berlin protest over covid restrictions. have seen comments under youtubes saying half a million, a million attended, but cannot verify. however, interesting RT Germany mentions 2 million. this would be spread out around Berlin, it seems. the protest was banned, but overturned by a court at the last minute. MSM worldwide reported 18,000 attended, tho Deutsche Welle called it 38,000:

    (translation)
    29 Aug: RT Germany: Berlin2908: “We are not Covidiotes” – tens of thousands of people demonstrate at the Victory Column
    According to police spokesman Thilo Cablitz, there are “tens of thousands” of people listening to the speakers on the Great Star alone by the Victory Column. Although there are no reliable figures on the total number, ***some speak of an upper limit of two million people who gathered in Berlin today and protest against the Corona measures, but also against the federal government itself…
    https://deutsch.rt.com/inland/106097-berlin2908-wir-sind-keine-covidioten/

    MSM were repeating headlines stating the protest was shut down for lack of social distancing, but this is from the night rally:

    29 Aug: Deutsche Welle: Berlin: Police call off protests against coronavirus curbs
    Hundreds were arrested in Berlin after opponents of coronavirus restrictions marched through the city and defied the police orders to disperse. Authorities said the protesters violated court orders on health and safety.
    by kp,ab,jsi/dj (dpa, AFP, epd, AP)
    Officials estimated some 38,000 protesters took part in the rally on Saturday, a day after a court overturned the capital’s ban on the protest.
    By the evening, police had arrested around 300 people, Berlin state Interior Minister Andreas Geisel told reporters…

    Police had previously criticized participants for ignoring repeated instructions to follow social distancing measures, warning on Twitter that the march would not be allowed to start if demonstrators did not keep a safe distance from each other.
    The crowd had initially gathered around the Brandenburg Gate on Saturday morning, news agency dpa reported. Demonstrators shouted “Open the gate” and “We are the people,” echoing chants used in the pro-democracy movement in former East Germany…
    Some 3,000 police officers were deployed Saturday morning to control the crowds…

    An administrative court in Berlin on Saturday morning ruled that the demonstration could go ahead, overturning an earlier decision from a lower court banning the protest.
    The city had announced the ban earlier this week, citing the lack of health precautions taken by protesters at a similar demonstration earlier this month…

    Barriers were required in place in front of stages where speeches are held and event coordinators were told to regularly remind those in attendance to keep a safe distance from each other. The judge did not include wearing masks in the guidelines.

    Thousands had gathered in the German capital. But the march was shut down after an hour for failing to obey social distancing rules.
    By Christopher F. Schuetze and Melissa Eddy
    BERLIN — Thousands of Germans angered over restrictions intended to control the coronavirus marched in Berlin on Saturday, but the police dispersed them after an hour because many were violating the very social-distancing rules championed by Chancellor Angela Merkel that they say threaten their rights and livelihoods.

    Many of the marchers were bunched together and maskless in Berlin’s streets, with some shouting “Merkel must go!” and others carrying American flags and a photo of President Trump that read, “Help.”…

    BBC has now, on top of their anti-HCQ attitude, gone to some lengths to discredit Trump’s move to shame the FDA into agreeing the use of recovered plasma as a treatment, taking the antibodies from one recovered person to give to others.

    Who is Taking the Beijing Bribes?…
    Posted on August 31, 2020
    ODNI John Ratcliffe made an interesting, frightening & stunningly open direct statement yesterday when he described intelligence evidence that China is putting on a full-court press against governors and local officials to retain their influence campaign in 2020.
    Essentially what DNI Ratcliffe described boils down to Beijing threatening economic blackmail against U.S. officials who were comfortable being reliant on local Chinese investment and purchases of U.S. companies, assents and interests.
    With that stark statement in mind; and keeping the full national security ramifications in the forefront; it is worth remembering a foreboding speech given by Secretary of State Mike Pompeo in February.
    This is specifically important now against the backdrop of how some U.S. politicians appear to be reacting to the COVID-19 challenges, perhaps even weaponizing the virus to achieve political objectives; and with a perspective toward the way media outlets, some businesses and many politicians appear to be influenced by China. The background context for this speech takes on an entirely new dimension.
    Pompeo’s remarks were made to the National Governors Association (NGA) Feb 8, 2020; and there’s an interesting segment where Pompeo reveals his awareness of a list of U.S. governors compiled by China’s communist party; and their alignment with China’s interests. A transcript of the key excerpt from his speech is provided.

    I think Andrews is about to send out the signal that ordinary people do not have the right to protest – unlike the feral left who were not protesting what their government was doing to them, but demanding the government implement their own agenda on the grounds of a fictitious story on the other side of the world.

    Good onya, Sam.

    If every time you don’t like a law you can organize a mob to disregard it then why have laws anyway? You’re embracing anarchy.
    So Sam is achieving the exact opposite of what he’s trying to do.
    It’s especially sad in his case because he actually has public recognition and could draw a sizable audience if he actually wanted to put forward proper arguments and properly push for a change in policy.
    But that requires actually having proper arguments, ideas, etc.

    I thought we have a right to political protest. Didn’t Dan Andrews support the right of the BLM protesters? Why is he then sending out his storm-troopers (aka VicPol) to shut this demonstration down?

    It’s not anarchy – it’s their right to associate, right to assemble, right to free speech, and right to political protest. You should be sad about that, because it’s your right too.

    Covid isnt about the disease – its about imprisoning a whole population in some sick, sadist fantasy. The sooner these sickos running it are removed legally from power, the better.

    Bit of a problem of Comrade Dan – latest report from CDC in USA says 94% of “covid deaths” are actually due to underlying medical conditions.

    94% of deaths “from covid” are actually due to pre-existing medical conditions.

    As such, it would seem logical that healthy people have nothing to fear and logically don’t need to be under lockdown.

    There is a very serious issue that comes at the end of all of this.

    How to replace the current Police Force(s) in toto. Every single last one of them.

    There is no way any of the current mob can be allowed to stay, since their deliberate collaboration with a tyrant to usurp the freedoms of the community they had sworn to serve.

    Is there a case, anywhere, of an Officer or Officers refusing to follow immoral orders? We cannot have “just following orders” types in our Police Forces. Principles and Integrity are paramount.

    They can never have the respect that is needed from the community to fulfill their function when they have voluntarily become the strong-arm of oppression, for a dictator. Their positions are untenable.

    Case numbers are going down in Victoria, so you knew this was coming:

    Victoria’s testing rates have dropped too low, Chief Health Officer Brett Sutton has said, with the state recording a net increase of 58 cases overnight after 12 cases were reclassified.

    Professor Sutton told today’s press conference the state was on the right pathway but could be compromised by low testing rates, which dropped to 10,000 tests received in the past 24 hours.

    Case numbers are dropping? Quick, do more tests! So, out of 10,000 tests yesterday we got 70 new cases. Did it occur to Brett the Buddhist that if fewer people are presenting for tests maybe it’s because fewer people are experiencing systems? And if the testing has such a low ‘hit’ rate (0.7%) then increasing it isn’t going to do much.

  51. Rafiki

    Is this a possible explanation? Andrews signed up the ChiComs to fund and build (with CFMMEU support) a massive infrastructure project, which he hoped to unvail not too far distant? The worse the economic situation at this point, the more willing the hapless Vics will be to see him as a saviour.

    Covid mortality rate in Australia (excluding Victoria): 4.6 per million

  53. mem

    Victoria’s rate is 18.5 times that of the rest of the country.

    And that is because of Daniel Andrews’ mismanagement of quarantine and the fact that many of those working in the botched security were related to people doing shift work in aged care. Unlike other states Daniel Andrews did not bring in extra protective protocols into aged care until after stage 3 lock downs by which time the virus was replicating amid the frail and terminally ill elderly. He continue to blame the rest of Victoria for his malfeasance and has taken away our rights rather than to take responsibility for the aged care debacle.
