Banks in bed with Muslims over Bendigo Protestors Account

The Bendigo Bank fiasco all started when a group of Bendigo citizens heard about plans to build a huge new mosque in their city. Knowing that a mosque would bring untold trouble, as they had seen happen in other places where mosques were built, they decided to get together and work out ways to oppose the development application.

Oh piggy bendover bank!

They formed the Concerned Citizens of Bendigo group and opened a bank account to deposit donations they planned to raise from other concerned citizens.

But they soon found out that the Bendigo Bank is in bed with the Muslims. As opposition to the mosque grew the bank took it upon themselves to censor the protestors. The bank closed the Concerned Citizens account, stating that it did not meet the Banks Community Standards. This certainly raised a few eyebrows, because the Bendigo Bank markets itself as a Community Bank!

When news of the account closure got out over Facebook it created a huge backlash against the bank. To date, depositors have closed their accounts to the tune of at least $60 million, and many investors have divested themselves of their stock in the bank. The drain has not ended yet. In fact, it is likely to continue for the foreseeable future.

Meanwhile, the bank has stood firm on its decision, claiming the moral high ground. What a shame they cant understand that We the People can see right through the sham.

In an effort to counter the bad publicity that its actions caused the Bank put up a statement on its Facebook Page:

In response to recent questions and commentary regarding our decision to close an account. This was a considered decision by our Bank, and we respect everyones right to voice their opinions. Equally we have a right to ours, and we want to do business with organisations whose values align with our own. Our Bank values tolerance and inclusiveness, qualities which are an important part of a strong community. This is the only comment we will be making here on this matter. ^Jeanette

This only served to upset even more people. They flocked to the Stop the Bendigo Mosque Facebook page to voice their displeasure. They also vented their anger on the Bendigo Bank page where some of the comments were, shall we say, less than pleasant.

The account closure prompted the members of the Concerned Citizens group to start digging into the reasons behind it. Working to the old maxim, follow the money they soon started to yield results.

While they were digging into the Bendigo Banks motives the Concerned Citizens group was not giving up. They approached National Australia Bank (NAB), only to find that the bank declined to open a bank account for them. Not surprising really, as the group quickly learned that NAB is a major shareholder in the Bendigo Bank through its wholly owned subsidiary National Nominees.

So Concerned Citizens went to the Commonwealth Bank. To their surprise they found that the CBA also refused to open an account for them as did Bank Macquarie, and Westpac all claiming a values clash.

Where indeed?

Finally their accountant offered Concerned Citizens the use of one of his accounts at the Macquarie Bank. But their joy was short lived. They quickly found that this account was closed as well and the accountant also lost his standing with that bank as a result. Their first inkling came when they tried to log into the online banking facility only to find that there was no account to log into. When their accountant asked the bank what had happened they told him they had closed the account. However, they did promise that they would mail him the cheque for the missing money.

A supporter has revealed that the Macquarie is handling the sale of the Rural Finance Corporation for the State of Victoria, and that the Bendigo Bank is the only buyer in a no tender no public offering tender sale.

The supporter also found that J.P Morgan had advised the Victorian Government not to go to tender. Strange indeed, until it was found that J.P Morgan is also a shareholder in the Bendigo Bank!

The Bendigo Bank started the ball rolling that has sparked a chain-reaction throughout the banking system. Now, all the banks have closed ranks to protect themselves against We the People, not understanding that we have the power to stop them dead in their tracks and uncover every bit of dirt on them there is. They have prodded the tiger and now we are baring our teeth.

Not surprisingly, the Politicians will only side with the perceived winners, and to date that has been the Banks. However, this is likely to change. We the People are uniting as the murky facts in this distasteful drama are pealed back, layer by stinking layer.

Bendigo Bank CEO Mike Hirst

Mike Hirst, the Bendigo Banks CEO, tried to explain to Kent Baylay of the Gold Coast Sentinel in an off the record interview that was later uploaded to the Internet that the bank made a morally based decision against a group they considered a bunch of racists.

Mike Hirst didnt let the facts get in the way of his attempted whitewash. Like just about everything that come out of his mouth he appeared less than truthful, to use the words of Dr. Alexander Douglas MP.

Dr. Douglas deserves the title The Honourable Member for Gaven in Queensland for his revelations on the Alan Jones radio show exposing the extent of the corruption within the banking and political systems of Australia.

As a result of his revelations the true facts are emerging and we are connecting the dots. The Bendigo Bank has been lying through its collective teethand then some.

It transpires that the property that surrounds the intended site of the Mosque in Bendigo is actually owned by a company controlled by an ex-Director of the Bendigo Bank and Chairman of Bendigo Telco. Mr. Don Erskine with his son Mark are involved in the Brickworks development.

At first glance, it looks like closing the Concerned Citizens account was just a favour done by Mike Hirst and the Board of Directors of the Bendigo Bank for an old friend. Obviously, they wanted to silence any opposition. After all, what is the small matter of closing a customers bank account when weighed against a $4 Million windfall?

Bend Over Bendigo Bank, the dhimmi bank

Next, the Concerned Citizens found out that the Bendigo City Council is about to sit in Chambers to discuss re-zoning all that land to high density residential.

The land owner and his partners stand to make a SUBSTANTIAL capital gain out of that deal. No wonder this mosque application has generated so much controversy.

Once the mosque is built hundreds, if not thousands more Muslims will move into the area. They will want somewhere to live: And where better than right next door to the mosque?

Perhaps this explains why the mosque application proposes such a LARGE facility. Its not just for the few dozen Muslims living in Bendigo today. They are planning on building up a substantial Islamic presence there.

What does this mean for the local residents?

Well, as we have already seen, if your business or group dares go against the plans of this mob you will be targeted, just as the Concerned Citizens Group were, and told to take your business elsewhere. Of course, they will make sure that it is just as impossible to open a new business or bank account, as the Concerned Citizens Group has. Since being rejected by the Bendigo Bank they have been unable to open a new account at any bank in Bendigo!

A romantic vision of the proposed Bendigo Mosque

The consequences, if the mosque is approved, will be catastrophic for any Australian businesses currently operating in the area. They will soon find that they are targeted by the Muslims in a concerted effort to move them out so that Muslims can move in. This will happen in a number of ways. Businesses will be broken into, people will be attacked, rubbish will be dumped outside their doors, windows broken, cars parked to block access.

If you think this is an over-reaction you only have to look at what has happened in other western countries. This is a standard practice wherever a mosque is built. Residents are forced to move and if they refuse their lives are made such hell that in the end they are happy to move even if they lose money selling their property. In some cases, people are killed.

As more Muslims move into the area traffic problems will increase. Crime will become rampantMuslims are not exactly always law abiding citizens. They put their Islamic sharia law before any western laws. Their loyalty is not to the country they live in but to Islam and sharia law.

Noise pollution will become a burden on all residents. The call to prayer will be blasted out of loudspeakers from the mosque from early morning to late in the evening.

But all this is in the future.

The biggest worry for Bendigo residents today is the impending City Council meeting to approve the application to re-zone that all important land around the proposed mosque. If this happens then there will be no stopping the mosque or the subsequent destruction of the peace and tranquillity of Bendigo.

Is this what Bendigo residents want?

We are calling on all concerned citizens to attend that City Council meeting and make sure that their objections are heard, loudly. (All objectors will be notified or inboxed through the Stop the Mosque Facebook page to attend.)

Millitary Technology used by Suspect Police To Spy

Military surveillance technology “Dirt Boxes” that can intercept data, calls and text messages from hundreds of mobile phones simultaneously, as well as jam transmissions from a device, according to documents obtained, are being used by USA Police and in the balance of probabilities Australian police.

stingray-2StingRay is a radio interception device that, when deployed, forces mobile phones in a given area to connect to it instead of a legitimate communications tower. A computer attached to a StingRay allows investigators access to a trove of data from intercepted mobile phones, including call and messaging logs, geolocation data and handset information.

KingFish is a less-expensive, more-portable version of a StingRay. Some records indicate that, while a StingRay is intended to be mounted in and controlled from a vehicle, a KingFish can be remotely controlled and even be worn by its user.

The StingRay and KingFish manufactured by Hariis Corporation are sold as part of a larger surveillance kit that includes third-party software designed by Pen-Link, a company that makes programs for cellphone forensics, .and laptops by Dell and Panasonic.

Whistleblower like Julian Assange and Edward Snowden alerting us to government spooks spying on citizens that is a violation of the freeworld, now we have police services that are far from squeaky clean, unaccountable, and riddled with corruption availing themselves of technology to spy without consequence.

Internet Interception flow chart

With knowledge that in Western Australia a person suspected police were illegal spying and he set in place a network of sophisticated traps to confirm or refute suspicions – all 10 traps were sprung confirming illegal spying. The bonus was uncovering compliant well known internet provider colluding backdoor information to WA Police that will be revealed soon after the lines of red-herrings being planted across Western Australia no longer is entertains.

If enforcers are illegally or legally harvesting people’s emails and SMS messages, the information is illegible if encrypted. So why have you not been encrypting?

  • For messaging from PC,MAC, Tablet, or Smart-phones, the answer is a tidy high security free APP that is simple to use “wickr” (download www.wickr.com )  that works like a personal sms platform encrypting automatically every transmission and leaves no meta file footprints. You can set it to hold messages from one minute to one week before shredding. It also can send pictures and files. 
  • Email encryption has until now been somewhat complicated for the average user. A Switzerland based email very high encrypting service called ProtonMail really has big brother locked out offering this service FREE, and again like Wickr it removes all metadata foot prints from transmissions. It is web-based (like Gmail and Hotmail but without any backdoor access to big brother) and capable of dealing with unencrypted mail or the option of sending encrypted mail to recipients that do not have protonmail service. There is a qualifying period to obtain an account that takes up to a month depending when server space becomes available – www.protonmail.com. 

With our Australian government, led by the Attorney General George Brandis, are introducing legislation for meta data retention by your internet service provider to hold for seven years, a process now abandoned by the rest of the world reflecting just how far out of touch our government is with spying techniques. These user friendly personal security tools for your email and messaging lock out big-brother and any prying eyes and the threat of identity theft.

Start using Wickr and register for protonmail today, then engage family, business associates, and friends to protect their personal space with you online.

December Abbott To Sign Away Australia to UN Agenda 21

Time Australian Politicians told the public the truth, about how the United Nations are controlling Australia. Its not the Sovereign People of Australia, Its the United Nations, courtesy of the those politicians we pay to act in our interests!!!

It makes no difference which side of politics are in power, your vote means nothing, they are all working to the Global Agenda. which is NOT in your interests!

The media, all of them are totally useless, those with a public voice are silent, cowards that they are!

The UN Sustainable Development Agenda 21 has been in Australia since 1992, its now in every aspect of our lives. At the signing of SDA21 at the Earth Summit in Rio, the UN Man Maurice Strong said this:

“Isn’t the only hope for the planet that the industrialised nations collapse? Isn’t it our responsibility to bring this about?”

That is your future, collapse of your Nation. This December in Paris your politicians are ready to sign away your life, your freedom and that of your children. Because they are committed to the Global Agenda!

Who are the fools here???

HOW MUCH LONGER DO WE “COP” THIS

Assaulting and strip searching, a woman (Joanne Martin) in custody that included male officers, resulted in her finger being broken and a humiliating march through the Perth Lockup naked. The WA Police Commissioner dismissing the facts on video stating “It Was Lawful” and not one officer involved has been dismissed or charged. This confirms further that law enforcement in Australia is unaccountable, out of control, riddled with corruption and being run akin to “Mafia Thugs”. (Footage from Channel 9 News)

NOTE:  Further to this the Police Officers and government public servants that were found giving false evidence in their case brought against Robert Paul CPO, found not guilty of all charges in Perth, still have not been charged with perjury and are currently conducting their corrupt business as usual.

ZOMBIES FROM THE DEEP SURFACE AGAIN

May 25th 2010 we published this story with concern to government pollution of our oceans. Maybe this explains the shoals of dead and deformed fish appearing around NSW coastline, for the politicians took no notice in 2010 and we may expect the same result today.

Burned hand in 2004 by a mustard gas shell

SOS-NEWS released a small segment on toxic waste dumping in our near off-shore waters in an earlier issue. This story received quite some attention from the South Coast fraternity of New South Wales. Initially it was apparent that many down that way wished that this issue would just slide under the carpet and not rear it”s ugly dangerous head on their patch.

Then, obviously some in that neck of the woods did a little research of their own and as far as we can tell, a bit of pressure was put on to the Coastal Rights association to look into this time bomb and in so doing they contacted SOS-NEWS. Discussions re this matter ensued and the CRA decided that they would consider the issue.

After a period CRA came back to SOS-NEWS and although they were coming to a conclusion from their own research into this poisoning of Australia”s future, they wished to take the matter on themselves. The deal agreed to by SOS-NEWS and CRA was to allow the CRA time to contact Politicians of their choice and attempt to get (a) recognition of the problem (b) political movement towards addressing the immediate concerns, and (c) Political management of the public”s right to knowledge of the seriousness of the problem.

SOS-NEWS reluctantly agreed to this on the proviso that there would only be a short time frame given to allow the Political leaders to come to the table with CRA. CRA advised that they would write to a number of senior politicians and keep SOS-NEWS abreast of the responses, thereby giving both them and us a clear indication that this was not going to be a political snow job, as almost all else in the state of NSW has been since the post Carr, now Iemma government has delivered to the citizens since they have been and are still in power.

We have now heard from CRA and they have advised of the response they have received, but first, the letter CRA sent to 24 Politicians across this Nation.

Water Peril Water & Hope

courtesy Google Images

James Famiglietti, a leading hydrologist at the NASA Jet Propulsion Laboratory, wrote a recent article in Nature Climate Change entitled, “The global groundwater crisis”. In that article, he warns that, based on satellite imagery analysis, “most of the major aquifers in the world’s arid and semi-arid zones, are experiencing rapid rates of groundwater depletion.”

Worse, “nearly all of these aquifers underlie the word’s great agricultural regions and are primarily responsible for their high productivity.

“These water-deficient agricultural regions include California which, based on satellite image data, has less than one year of water remaining :

“Data from NASA satellites show that the total amount of water stored in the Sacramento and San Joaquin river basins – that is, all of the snow, river and reservoir water, water in soils and groundwater combined – was 34 million acre-feet below normal in 2014. That loss is nearly 1.5 times the capacity of Lake Mead, America’s largest reservoir.

“California been dropping more than 12 million acre-feet of total water yearly since 2011. Roughly two-thirds of these losses are attributable to groundwater pumping for agricultural irrigation in the Central Valley. Farmers have little choice but to pump more groundwater during droughts, especially when their surface water allocations have been slashed 80% to 100%. But these pumping rates are excessive and unsustainable.

California has only about one year of water supply left in its reservoirs, and our strategic backup supply, groundwater, is rapidly disappearing.

There is no contingency plan.

• According to an A.D. 2013 article in Slate magazine entitled “The C-free Diet”:

“California produces a sizable majority of many American fruits, vegetables, and nuts: 99 percent of artichokes, 99 percent of walnuts, 97 percent of kiwis, 97 percent of plums, 95 percent of celery, 95 percent of garlic, 89 percent of cauliflower, 71 percent of spinach, and 69 percent of carrots (and the list goes on and on). Some of this is due to climate and soil.

“No other state, or even a combination of states, can match California’s output per acre. Lemon yields in California, for example, are more than 50 percent higher than in Arizona. California spinach yield per acre is 60% higher than the national average. Without California, supply of all these products in the United States and abroad would dip, and in the first few years, a few might be nearly impossible to find. Orchard-based products in particular, such as nuts and some fruits, would take many years to spring back.”

• The implications are obvious. If California runs out of water next year, the domestic supplies of many fruits and vegetables will probably diminish. The prices of fruits and vegetables will probably rise.

Food shortages are possible.

Food riots are unlikely in the near term, but within a year or three, conceivable.

If we have a year before California runs out of water, it might be a good idea to use this year as an opportunity to establish your own garden or aqua-culture operation.

• But, here’s an extraordinary video that deals with much the same problem: global desertification. As you can see from the video, much of the world may be turning into desert. For production may therefore wane, contributing to starvation and violence.

But–as the speaker (Alan Savory) in this video explains, all is not lost. In fact, the solution to many instances of desertification may be to increase grazing on lands that have become arid. Sound nuts? Take the time to view the video. The speaker makes me proud to be a member of mankind. He’s doing something good.

NOT GUILTY Verdict slammed Perth DPP Tainted Evidence

Child sexual abuse is not tolerated by Australians. The use of such allegations as a tool to further the vindictive personal hatred of a partner is deplorable and to tutor your two young daughters to support fabricated evidence is despicable. Involving authorities in a vendetta to satisfy a personal agenda utilising this fabricated evidence is shameful. Leanne Patricia Daley is such a person.

On Wednesday March 18 2015 she and the entourage of Police and Child Protection personnel were discredited before a jury in the Perth Court when a verdict of “not guilty on all charges” was returned after just two hours to finally vindicate Robert Paul McJannett who walked free totally exonerated of these malicious charges laid in 2009.

The Western Australian judicial is world renowned for never letting justice or constitutional rights get in the way of the “good ole boys” personal agenda.

Confined to the dock Rob McJannett represented himself [usually a suicide mission] from the hundreds of hours it took him in preparation.  He had documents and videos stacked on a tiny table with more packed in a suitcase beside him then without input of a WA marionette lawyer he systematically dismantled the dubious evidence presented by the prosecution over the course of a marathon 15 day trial.

The prosecution team working with engineered evidence underestimated this crane driver’s ability in court to present his case. He exposed a chain of collusion and conspiracy between the DPP, Police and Child Services whose agenda was to mislead the court and incarcerate an innocent man.

SOS-NEWS “smelt a rat” in 2009 when Rob McJannett confided that Leanne Daley had made these allegations against him. Investigations conducted by SOS-NEWS confirmed the evidence was tainted and doubtful at best. Despite these issues the authorities had an agenda and did not concern themselves with the little matter of the truth. They continued to their taxpayer funded trial.

With truth and remarkable resilience on his side Robert Paul McJannett was able to stand before a jury in a biased court system exposing the perpetrators of this malicious prosecution.

The full story will be published when the dust settles and congratulations to you Rob you have given us all hope.

Andrew’s Periscope Crap from the Crypt in Canberra

Poli-Waffle Government bull & Spin banner

Competitive Evaluation Process

Watch this video first to hear the encrypted waffle by Andrews as he dodges the media questions, then read the story below.

The Minister for Defence, Mr. Kevin Andrews, taxpayer funded  $336,599pa plus perks, has certainly practised the mandatory pollie skill of speaking much, meaning little, thus sidelining his real intentions.  He has managed to elevate to the next level, in that he has not only confused the public, but the rest of the Government with respect to the Submarine tendering process, or whatever else he may have been thinking.

The Submarines shall no doubt be build overseas, with the decision more than likely already set in concrete. The latest assumed tendering requirement, being the “Competitive evaluation process”, probably already excludes Australian builders anyway, as any such analysis would probably declare us lacking competence in manufacture, and ability to hold to time and budget.  Why do we need twelve conventional submarines anyway, in a nuclear world???

However, many have attempted to root out the cleverly concealed meaning within the statement, the code of which required considerable decoding.  Bringing confusion to a complete Government, most of whom are members of the legal fraternity, is no mean feat.

I have studied this statement and believe I may be able to elucidate and offer up some understanding:  “The Submarine project should be so structured, such that it maximises the probability of project success and minimises the cost and time required for the philosophy of commonality and standardisation”.  I hope this helps; even Mr Andrews to understand that which he said.  As a resultant implication, there must exist, the characterisation of specific criteria.

This should qualify me for at least a seat on the backbench.  Amen.

The American Sierra Club was formed in 1892 political lobby group to expand the bushwalking academics empire across America based on this mythical being of John Muirs so called wilderness, purposely dehabited of Indians, farmers, foresters, fishing communities. Antarctica of 100 years ago was about the only uninhabited wilderness. Most other land across the globe had humanity as an integral part of the ecology. The wilderness mob are quite an elitist antisocial mob on a cop out for the city experiment were in 1800 there were only 2% of the human population living in town today there is over 47% and where in 1800 there were the first billion people, doubled by 1930 and now 7.2 billion and still rising. While ever the greedy escape to ‘wreckreate’ in rural well managed areas the city despot is not being addressed.

love-that-dirty-waterAs more land grabs occur for the global national park empire there is less ability to move on a shrinking agricultural ecology and spell it. Farmers, foresters fishermen ripped off for their produce such their ability to look after the land and water is diminished. Boffins and bureaucrats try to wedge into the food chain with their not so good expertise foisted on the unwary. Rural minorities are forced into end on end production to pay the bureaucrats and boffins to oversee the food chain no doubt. Cities are invariably social concentration camps set over river mouths that used to be clean and fed the people. Not so today. Australia has perhaps the lowest population density. Pick any capital city and tell me if you’d drink the water straight from the river flowing through town. Brisbane? Hunter? Hawksbury? Georges? Molongolo? Murrumbidgee below Canberra? Yarra, as it meets Port Phillip, the lower Murray, Swan?

  • Would you drink from any of them?
  • Would you eat the today fish?
  • Would you go today swimming?

The Thames and Rhine are probably cleaner from where most of our environmental activists come from passaged through university indoctrination systems.

Tank Stream was the reason Sydney was located there. Tank Stream was bricked in by 1820 after use only since 1788 by Europeans. Aboriginal people came and went for about 60000 years previous and the water was fine sweet and clean, spelled and looked after with civic pride. 200 years on Sydney, Canberra, Melbourne, Adelaide want to inflict their behaviours on the Snowy. Try drinking around the tourist resorts and ski fields. Follow the blow flies to the camping area toilets.

Katter Supports Spencer- “Who Owns The Land”

katter-spencer court

Bob Katter media meet Sydney Federal Law Court

Bob Katter has flown into Sydney to support the property rights activist, who was hospitalized in 2010 after a 52 day hunger strike up a wind tower on his property near Comma, New South Wales.

Mr Spencer’s case is currently before the Federal Court in Sydney, where he is suing the Commonwealth and State Governments for compensation over a decision which removed fundamental property rights affecting his land.

Former Howard Government Minister, Dr David Kemp, will today be giving evidence in the case.

Mr Katter said today that “we’ve flown in from North Queensland for what is one of the most important cases in Australian jurisprudence history.

“This case is equally as important in Australian history as Mabo.

“The Crown has given away our rights to our own property. This is a simple case where a person had millions of dollars’ worth of timber and the timber rights were taken off him, with no payment or compensation.

“In 1215 our forebears wrote out the great Magna Carta, which says that “No free man is to be taken or imprisoned or disseised of his free tenement or of his liberties or free customs”.

“That is a very clear cut statement; it has been the hallmark of the British justice system, until the last 30 years when in Australia that hallmark has been taken away by legislators.

“This case is about whether you, as an Australian own your land, or whether the Crown owns your land.”

Mr Katter said that Mr Spencer’s case had been running for 7 years and that there were a string of cases lining up behind it, such as those involving the Government’s World Heritage declaration in North Queensland, which took millions of dollars off property values. Mr Katter said that every single case so far had been settled out of Court.

Mr Katter said that ultimately, “we want justice for Peter Spencer. We want a decision which says that if the Government takes property rights off a person, they have to pay compensation.

“Rest assured, if Peter Spencer loses his case, we will have set the freedoms of the people back hundreds of years,” Mr Katter said.
