NSW health now doing district by district case data.

https://www.health.nsw.gov.au/Infectious/diseases/Pages/covid-19-latest....

Cases outside Sydney LGA's are very, very low.

If they lock down Sydney and prevent most travel outside urban areas, where the disease is concentrated, we should be able to keep this under control.

This is exactjy why i'm still finding it hard to believe it's an accident.

I would go as far as to create an oversight panel to review the actions of the FIRB as well. Most of their decisions are made in secret, FOI requests are very expensive and slow to process and without being able to quote specific examples, go against the national interest when huge fistfuls of grubby money are being chucked around.

Also, i'd be very wary of Chinese activity in the Pacific at this time. Australia may have the resources to ride this out for the time being but Pacific nations will be bought lock stock when they default on their loans that were benevolently bestowed upon them out of the selfless kindness from Grandpa China.

Just as a sideline story to what a lovely bunch of human beings both past and present Virgin Australia executives can be, I came across their ex CEO in 2010 who short changed me $200k on a building contract in Tasmania. Suffice to say my business, bank balance and family lost.

Interesting thing though is when the shit hit the fan I started Googling this bottom feeder who was worth $170 million and found the following article about a job that went bad in Noosa involving not just him but the whole merry band of muskateers including Sir Richard himself, the then current CEO of Virgin Blue Brett Godfrey and their project manager from Brisbane VMR International. Some of you Noosa locals might remember this and how it fucked some of the tradies up not to mention the poor builder as well

It’s about time the China situation was openly acknowledged.

It was only a few days ago that it was still considered racist to dare suggest that China was sourcing supplies from Australia.

The Chinese corruption throughout Australia has become so complete that any and all consideration of China as a threat , as unfriendly and as self interested to our detriment has been wholeheartedly defined as unmentionable .

The usual pinhead fake left on this site have been doing the CCP’s work for them relentlessly. They still are. Youd think that they’d finally recant their ignorant defence of the tyrannical dictatorship with its eyes on our country but you’d be wrong.

China is looking more and more like Germany in 1938. Taiwan will play the role of Poland .

Repost from comments elsewhere ( not my post )

“Voters were given a choice at the last election – turn the country into the third world overnight (Labor) or turn it into the third world in six months (Lnp). They chose the latter and here we are.

Labor’s policy of unlimited elderly parent visas was the single worst thing I’ve ever seen. On top of 500 mill to the UN, MORE protection visas etc. Nothing about the working class and this overrated negative gearing reform (which i supported but was milquetoast at best and everyone forgot it was Keating as treasurer who brought this in back in 1987)

I voted One Nation for the first time in my life because I didn’t want either choice or the Greens. Some of the centre left types need to move on and realise there was more at play other than the Domainfax franking credits narrative

Labor offer no alternative. They have said very little about China during this whole virus mess and we all know where they stand on that.”

The wife was just informed that all her clients (and all her colleagues clients) who are in remand are to be released at midnight tonight. That's a few thousand offenders, plus many more low-level prisoners, due to a CV spike in prison and acknowledged inability to control it.

The decision is so hurried that many don't even have ID, so they've got no access to govt support, no place to live, or means to provide for themselves.

Meanwhile, and this was before the decision was passed, refuges in Sydney have seen a tripling in demand for beds and food.

There's no easy decision to take, but this is wrong.

Even if you bring your own pen its pretty much impossible to place your voting paper down, fill it in and then pick it back up again without your fingertips touching the booth.

Our walks down in Gastown about 10 years ago were an interesting experience - and not necessarily the nice kind.

It’s the exact same playbook as they had planned as the “ solution “ to climate change. That was meeting too much resistance. Populism and nationalism were on the rise.

I’ll accept that it’s not premeditated when Xi or Christine Lagarde dies. They’ll be doing their utmost to infect Trump. I’m sure a few B Grade globalists will have to be martyred for the cause so that it’s not too obvious to the plebs.

Amazing plan if that’s true. They could never have imposed this curtailment on Western nations and now we are begging them .

Global currency aye? I posted this in the bitcoin thread but I'll put it here too seeing as the topic has come up.

A senator in the US proposed a federal digital dollar in a senate bill as part of a covid19 stimulus package. This is what one person said about it:

"Okay, in a nutshell:
I'm a programmer that has worked with cryptocurrencies and understands how this works. Imagine that your money is not just money. It tells a story of what you do, who you do it with, how you do it, what you own, where you socialize, what Is your political association, and more.. it's dressed as a "money" but it's a token that represents YOU and represents ASSETS. It is placed on a national centralized database and used to monitor your activities. Depending on your activities, you can have your assets frozen, have you suspended from boarding a plane, have information about your health and vaccination history. It's more than just a digital dollar. It's a token of who YOU are. You don't exchange money with it, you just manipulate the ledger's entries. No real money is exchanged. I could go on with more, but this is not easy to explain. This is bitcoin gone on steroids! Only owned and controlled by state and corporations. Not distributed power, but centralized power."

Mike, local council has blocked/gated one road to one of those type carparks. Can we have a Mark McGowan over here in Vic? That's what's needed right now to save the vulnerable in the regions.

I do wonder about the Euro backpackers, situation might get dire for them if nowhere to stay, no funds. We should show compassion, get them to isolate, make sure they can eat, use facilities etc. But where? Hotel strategy using certain caravan parks? That would see way too many people using same ablutions so Wuhan coronavirus would go right through a place like that. Dunno? (An amusing/disturbing aside, we were at the big 500 site Pt Fairy caravan park in 2003 when easter coincided with an outbreak of gastro. The Ms came back from the ladies toilet late one night with wide eyes, saying OMG you have to see this. I was taken inside the empty ladies toilets and showers, and saw the entire back wall of one of the toilet cubicles covered in... I did not know humans could do that. Especially lady humans)

Blowin, astute observation. One could make any NWO assumptions at this stage but as I'm a bystander witnessing vignettes of the medical response/concern, I'd say it's a real threat rather than a psyop or similar power grab - those might be attempted anyway, the pieces are moving fast now. My 2c is a fuck up in a lab, has stuffed everyone over. If it was the full conspiracy depopulation stuff, you wouldn't see royalty or top leaders catching it. US has handled it poorly and will go through real strife.

Camped up in the prime carpark spots, shitting on every track ,washing their undies and dishes in the beach toilet sinks , spitting toothpaste on the ground, tuna oil, rubbish and then they hassle you in the surf at your spot! Try that in Hawaii. One parked up frenchman with his RV dropping cigarette buts right out the window (a pile of no less than 100 all in the same spot right below the rv window) been there for days in the same spot, i got into it with him through the side window and got nothing but typical french arrogance, so scooped them up and threw the handful right into his window onto the kitchen table him and his cunt wife were sitting at eating, very satisfying if a bit of a stinky hand was the cost ( I cleared glasses and emptied ashtrays at the local pub once upon a time so have dealt with worse) , weak cunt didnt even get out. Time to start giving them the heave ho, , nighttime visits and the like, lets take our country back. Give respect to gain respect and they know nothing about respect.

How about those horrendous wet markets in China!?
A despicable and filthy way to house poor animals of all descriptions.
The Chinese demand for "exotic" tastes, aphrodisiacs and herbal/traditional medicines such as tiger penis, rhino horn, etc is a disgrace.
Especially when it's done by the wealthy who should know better.

Reminds me of a time (pre mobile phones or I would have called fisheries) I was walking down a quiet coastal track for a mid week surf and came across a team of Chinese coming the other way with their striped $2 bags full of god knows what.? I was thinking wtf have this lot been up to??
Another time more recently there was about 10 of them crawling all over the rocks at a low tide beach like parasites taking any shellfish they could find.
When we confronted them they scurried off leaving their plastic bags behind with mainly dead and mangled remains.

Make no mistake, these people have NO regard for any other species or humans that don't think like them.
I know and have known some great Chinese people and what makes them great is that they dont think like Chinese!!!

If our leaders cant see a global invasion by stealth then we are finished. We may as well learn Mandarin. I think they can see the invasion; but arrogantly think they can control it and get rich too. Pressure your leaders via your local M.P. Tell them how we want our country to be like again.
