The world as we know it

ALP shutting down free speech and online blogs

Update; Pickering Post now confirm they are under attack with DOS attacks as well. Read here as well as the latest about Is our Prime Minister a crook? Please link, facebook & retweet – we need to get word out as our freedoms come under direct attack.

From Wikipedia;

One common method of attack involves saturating the target machine with external communications requests, such that it cannot respond to legitimate traffic, or responds so slowly as to be rendered effectively unavailable. Such attacks usually lead to a server overload. In general terms, DoS attacks are implemented by either forcing the targeted computer(s) to reset, or consuming its resources so that it can no longer provide its intended service or obstructing the communication media between the intended users and the victim so that they can no longer communicate adequately.

Denial-of-service attacks are considered violations of the IAB‘s Internet proper use policy, and also violate the acceptable use policies of virtually all Internet service providers. They also commonly constitute violations of the laws of individual nations

From the Australian Federal Police website;

High tech crime offences are defined in Commonwealth legislation within Part 10.7 – Computer Offences of the Criminal Code Act 1995 and include:

Each State and Territory in Australia has its own legislated computer-related offences which are similar to the Commonwealth legislation.

If the Finkelstein inquiry by Gillard’s ALP wasnt enough where those critical of the government could be jailed, then came the ALP’s internet freedom attack requiring all our passwords etc to be provided to a corrupt government. At the same time there is the ALPs attack on the free press (from Andrew Bolt’s blog);

– a media inquiry called into the alleged “bias” of newspapers, following Greens complaints about the “hate media” attacking its policies.

– proposals for a media supercop, able to jail journalists, being considered by the Government.

– proposals for new restrictions on media owners being considered by the Government.

– campaigning by Government against Gina Rinehart’s move on Fairfax.

– two journalists sacked last year over coverage of Julia Gillard’s past amid Government pressure on newspapers..

– expansion of state-funded ABC into internet, competing against private media.

– refusal to remove restrictions on legitimate public debate in the Racial Discrimination Act.

– interference in tender process to knock out News Ltd’s winning bid for Australia Network as apparent punishment.

So in every way we now have a government that acts like the North Korean Communist Party and destroys the once great democracy of this country. Now we are seeing the ongoing shutting down of websites critical of the government. This week JoanneNovas site was shut down & Larry Pickering has also had problems (though he claims they were simply increased traffic).

Reminds me of the night before the carbon tax was to be launched, and being highly critical of it & the government on my blog I was shocked to see that my blog was shut down completely and that without warning. The host Bluehost said it was a DOS attack from Australia through Telstra. As I tried to pursue the matter with both of them Telstra requested the IP address of the attack which Bluehost claimed it didn’t have and so I hit a brick wall.

On a similiar issue of free speech I have had a complaint with the human rights commission regarding Gillards ALP giving we the people a mere week to provide comment on over 11,000 pages of information on the carbon tax. The ALPs arrogant response to my complaint was they can do what they like and are unaccountable for it. The Human Rights Commission subsequently refused to pursue the matter & closed it. It seems we the people of Australia under this government have lost our rights.

And finally when you consider over 700 people are dead from Rudd & Gillard boat people policies, as well as those death from the insulation debacle, as well as the billion dollar burning of the people’s taxes by fraudulent policies  – it is criminal that this excuse for a government remains in power.

Is Gillard a crook? ; What is Gillard trying to hide? ; Gillard beyond redemption ; JuLIAR Gillard must stand down ;

    This Government is just plain dodgey but I’m sure they gave up caring what the voters think of them a long time ago. They know they are going to be demolished at the next election so as Julia says, ” we aren’t interested in polls we have been elected to do what’s right and make the unpopular decisions”.

    How arrogant is that to believe that once you are in Government your responsibility to public opinion ends and you can dismiss mismanagement with comments like we are here to make unpopular decisions.

    In my job every six months I have to have a performance review and submit Key Result Areas which are graded. I think the Government after they are elected should have to submit one of these at least every year and the public grade it online. Should it fall below a predefined benchmark, they are ousted and a new election held and if they were ousted before their 3 year term, their pensions-for-life are forfeited. This would remind them in no uncertain terms, who their boss is and encourage them to stick to election promises.

      Yeah there seems to be 2 sets of laws, one for the elitist left and another for the rest of us. We step out of line and we are heavily fined or imprisoned, yet the ALP can lure 700 people to their deaths, be incompetent policies that result in the deaths of tradesmen and yet they do it all with impunity and immunity. At the same time this government refuses to leave office despite its appalling practices & records.

    Finkelstein and the ALP are like a creeping paralysis on the rights of Australians


  3. Geoff Brown says:

    Unfortunately our champion of the products of Australia, Dick Smith, approves of Finkelstein –

    • twawki says:

      Dick Smith is another political elitist with a messiah complex who wants to be known for saving the world – problem is what the people think or want no longer matter to him.

  4. Wow! If Gillard & Labor can’t handle the heat, they should get out of the kitchen!

  5. RoHa says:

    I thought this came from a joint committee, which means the Coalition wanted this as well. No government wants criticism, so I can’t imagine the Coalition rushing to protect our freedom of speech once they are in power.

    yep green on the outside, red on the in

    I wonder if this new legislation will apply to the polititians or will they be the only voices spreading lies and hate from behind the cowards curtain of Parliamentary priviledge.

We fight not to enslave, but to set a country free, and to make room upon the earth for honest men to live in. Thomas Paine

Above all, we must realize that no arsenal or no weapon in the arsenals of the world is so formidable as the will and moral courage of free men and women. RONALD REAGAN,
My definition of a free society is a society where it is safe to be unpopular. Adlai E. Stevenson Jr
If you want to be free, there is but one way; it is to guarantee an equally full measure of liberty to all your neighbors. There is no other. Carl Schurz
The First Amendment is often inconvenient. But that is besides the point. Inconvenience does not absolve the government of its obligation to tolerate speech. Justice Anthony Kennedy
Self-reliance is the only road to true freedom, and being one’s own person is its ultimate reward. Patricia Sampson
Many politicians are in the habit of laying it down as a self-evident proposition that no people ought to be free till they are fit to use their freedom. The maxim is worthy of the fool in the old story who resolved not to go into the water till he had learned to swim. Thomas Macaulay
The law will never make men free, it is men that have to make the law free. Henry David Thoreau
If the freedom of speech is taken away then dumb and silent we may be led, like sheep to the slaughter. George Washington
