Geelong footballer Billie Smedts apologises over driving selfie

GEELONG footballer Billie Smedts has put the Cats' future relationship with the Transport Accident Commission in doubt after using an extendible arm to take a picture of himself driving home for Christmas. 

The half-forward's ``selfie'' photo was posted it to his 10,000 followers on social media site Instagram on Monday.

Smedts fixed his camera to a pole and took the photo of himself while behind the wheel, posting the message "Driving back to warrnambool for Christmas!!! #goproselfie".

With both hands occupied, the photo appears to show him steering his dark utility with his knees.

However, the Geelong Football Club this afternoon said the photo was "staged".

Police said staged or not the image sent the wrong message.

Geelong's top road policing cop, Senior Sergeant Shane Coles said careless driving was a "recipe for disaster".

"If a kangaroo were to jump out in front of his car he'd have gotten a nice photo of himself being killed," he said.

Sen Sgt Coles said there was no way a motorist could have total control of their vehicle while driving with one arm out the window.

"(Billie) is in a position where people idolise him and if they see this they'll think it's the norm and it's not, it's the complete opposite message of what we're trying to get out there.

He said this type of behaviour ``with someone driving with a bloody camera hanging out the window'' breaching laws with possible charges including careless or dangerous driving.

The 21-year-old Smedts has since taken the photo off the media site, perhaps prompted by a message that read "Hmmm. Seriously hope the cops or footy club don't see this". "TAC would not be too happy. A cousinly tip - take it down."

The TAC has confirmed it has already spoken with the Geelong Cats about the incident, flagging that a doubt had been cast over future arrangements with the club.

The TAC's chief executive officer Janet Dore said she was astounded by the photograph.

"It's extremely disappointing to see this dangerous behaviour from someone who should be a role model in our community. This is just unacceptable when there have already been so many tragic crashes this month in the lead up to Christmas," Ms Dore said.

"Now, more than ever, everyone needs to be safe on our roads as we celebrate this special time of year.

"Penalties for mobile phone use have gone up recently to $433 and four demerit points and this type of behaviour just reinforces why there has been an increase in the penalties."

Ms Dore said the Geelong Cats had done great work in the community, including taking the time to meet many people injured in car accidents.

Police have also been in contact with the Geelong Football Club and would like an apology from Smedts.

The Geelong Football club said Smedts had assured staff that the photo was in fact staged, and was his vehicle stationary while the image was taken.

Smedts has since apologised for the stunt.

"I understand that in taking and posting this image that it sends a poor and irresponsible message and I'm sorry for causing that," Smedts said.

"Road safety is something that is critical and should be taken seriously at all times.

But Victoria Police Superintendent Neville Taylor, head of Road Policing Operations, said it was inconsequential whether or not the car was in motion when the picture was taken.

"It doesn't matter really whether the car was moving or not, the message clearly in the photo is this is a person driving a car with a phone stuck out the window taking a selfie," he said.

``That is just absolutely stupid behaviour, it gives the wrong message, it's the kind of behaviour that can cost lives on the roads."

Cats chief executive officer Brian Cook acknowledged that the image has caused consternation.

"We take road safety seriously and like many others are disappointed that this image was taken and posted," Cook said.

"We will continue to educate our players and staff on the importance of road safety.

"We will further discuss this matter, however it will not be concluded until our player leadership group and playing list returns in early January."

The TAC does not currently have a sponsorship deal with the Geelong Football Club, which it has supported since the 2006 season.

In 2013, the TAC had an advertising package deal with the Cats worth about $220,000.

Smedts has attracted headlines in 2013, not always for the right reasons.

In April, he and recruit Josh Caddy had a run-in with the law when they donned balaclavas and, in a misguided prank, broke into a house, wrongly believing it was the home of teammate Jackson Thurlow.

While footballers are not genrally known for their Nobel prize winning Intelligent Quotient levels, could this whole scenario be blown out of proportion by the powers at large?

What is [worse?] than the ball throwers antics is the fact that the club that he belongs to provided false information.

The Geelong football club stated that allegedly he, Billie, assured that the photo was staged, when in reality it was NOT staged.

10,000 of the herd follow this moron on Instagram, maybe indicating he is a living legend?

McDonalds shuts down McResource Line employee website that warned about dangers of fast food

MCDONALD'S has shut down a website that warned employees about the dangers of eating fast food and advised them to return gifts if they needed cash. 
 
It was the latest in a series of gaffes involving the site, including a series of budget tips
Visitors to McResource Line no longer find any advice, just this message: "We are temporarily performing some maintenance in order to provide you with the best experience possible. Please excuse us while these upgrades are being made."

McDonald's, in a statement posted on its website, confirmed it had axed the McResource Line website, although some of the information is still available through a telephone hotline.

"A combination of factors has led us to re-evaluate and we've directed the vendor to take down the website. Between links to irrelevant or outdated information, along with outside groups taking elements out of context, this created unwarranted scrutiny and inappropriate commentary. None of this helps our McDonald's team members."

It appears the suggestion that its own food was not good for its employees was the final nail in the coffin.

"Fast foods are quick, reasonably priced, and readily available alternatives to home cooking. While convenient and economical for a busy lifestyle, fast foods are typically high in calories, fat, saturated fat, sugar, and salt and may put people at risk for becoming overweight," read one post, which included a picture of a hamburger and fries - staples of the fast food chain.

Another post labelled a meal with a cheeseburger and fries as an "unhealthy choice". A separate post writes, "it is hard to eat a healthy diet when you eat at fast-food restaurants often,” adding a warning about portion sizes.

The site also carried advice about not eating too many fries.

"In general, people with high blood pressure, diabetes, and heart disease must be very careful about choosing fast food because of its high fat, salt, and sugar levels," the post said, adding that items from fast-food places are "almost always high" in calories, fat, sugar and salt.

Last month, the company offered advice to its workers - many of whom earn minimum wage - about tipping. The list included suitable gratuities for au pairs, personal fitness trainers and pool cleaners, and was later removed from the site. It also offers the cheerless suggestion of returning unopened items after Christmas, to save money.

Other McBudget tips included:

SING AWAY STRESS: Singing along to your favourite songs can lower your blood pressure

BREAK IT UP: Breaking food into pieces often results in eating less and still feeling full

CUT OUT DEBT: You may also want to consider returning some of your unopened purchases that may not seem appealing as they did. Selling some of your unwanted possessions on eBay or Craiglist could bring in some quick cash

QUIT COMPLAINING: Stress hormone levels rise by 15 per cent after ten minutes of complaining
PACK YOUR BAGS: At least two vacations a year can cut heart attack risk by 50 per cent

Quite simply put McDonald's junk 'food' is for junk people.

Nothing healthy, nutritional or good about it whatsoever.

Carcinogenic junk for cannon fodder.

Kmart reveals its third-world sources

KMART has sought to lift the lid on its third-world supply chain by becoming the first Australian retailer to publish a list of factories it uses in Bangladesh. 
 
The discount department store chain will post the addresses of its Bangladeshi suppliers on its website from today, BusinessDaily can reveal.

It plans to announce the locations of Indian factories early next year and its Chinese suppliers later in 2014.
Kmart believes it is the only retailer in Australia and one of only a handful globally to publish the information. Managing director Guy Russo said transparency was crucial.

The move comes eight months after more than 1100 people died and 2500 were injured in the collapse of a nine-storey, illegally built workshop in Dhaka, Bangladesh, that was making clothing for the US and Europe.
No Kmart products came from the workshop, but the retailer later pulled orders from other Dhaka factories after deciding they were unsafe.

"Doing things the right way is really important to us," Mr Russo told BusinessDaily.

"Retailers worry doing something like this will hurt them competitively, but when you weigh up what's right against worrying about competition, this is what's right."

Kmart does not own any factories, but has contracts with more than 1500 factories that also supply other retailers around the world.

In addition to publishing factory locations, Kmart has drawn up a new ethical sourcing code that all its suppliers must adhere to.

It addresses issues including child labour, wages and working hours.

Mr Russo said hundreds of regular audits were carried out and Kmart had offered longer contracts to suppliers to give them security and an incentive to improve standards.

"The message we got from everyone in Bangladesh was not to leave, because employment is providing a way out of poverty," Mr Russo said.

"The factory owners we do business with are as passionate as we are about creating safe workplaces."
Kmart and fellow Australian retailers Target and Woolworths are also signatories to the independent Bangladesh Accord which is a legally-binding agreement to maintain standards at factories.

More than 100 businesses globally have signed the accord, but many Australian retailers have yet to make the commitment.

The joy of 'slavery' brings the true spirit of a (Corporate) Christmas to the multinationals.

The true (Corporate) spirit of Christmas

In Australia, there is an enormous emphasis on the purchase of goods during a period commonly known as Christmas, and the follow up, which has been introduced by the English empire commonly known as Boxing Day, where employers (and industrialists) would box up presents for their employees.

There may be different variations to the birth of 'Santa Claus' a Coca Cola invention, to St. Nicolaos of Greece, and the variations in between, but there can be no denying that in this commercial age, it is all about the economy of 'consumerism'.

It's all about how Australians will spend $2,900,000,000 in 'bargains' on 'Boxing Day' 2013 in purchasing overpriced 'junk'.

Christianity is an 'Abrahamic' regligion given to the masses by Israeli scholars, which has no factual proof of the existance of one 'God' as claimed.

Islam another 'Abrahamic' religion, in certain circles it has been mentioned that an Israeli by the name of Lothar Schmalfus wrote under the pseudonym 'Mohammed', has a massive global following.

Whatever the real truths of the Abrahamic religions, one fact still cannot be wipped from the history books is that there was a time where polytheism reigned supreme, and the scholars of the day went on a crusade to promote (forced) the 'idea' (no factual basis) that one 'god' exists as depicted in the Abrahamic religions.

What went unoticed is that in Australia, the summer solstice went by quietly on the 22nd of December.

The periods known as Christmas and Easter are actually pagan celebrations of the seasons for sowing seeds.

Knowledge is power and education is just one factor in achieving 'success', something that the Australian education system (deliberately) fails to deliver to the children of the cannon fodder.

Who needs educated children to stop cannon balls???

P.S. - Coca Cola IS a carcinogenic drink, which is detrimental for human consumption, despite this fact is one of the more successful global trademarks.

The Australian government sells water at $1.40 per million litres, where the public pays approximately $0.90 per 1000 litres from the domestic tap, or approimately 642 times more than Coca Cola's price for the same water.

Ringwood solicitor Graeme Steart in court but not registered

A LAWYER who has represented people charged with theft and making threats to kill is not licensed to appear in court. 
 
Ringwood solicitor Graeme Steart is not registered as a legal practitioner and does not hold a current practising certificate, despite being regularly seen representing clients at the Frankston Magistrates' Court.

All licensed lawyers are listed on the Legal Services Board Register of Legal Practitioners and Law Practices.

Mr Steart and his firm, FW Robson & Co, which he runs form his Ringwood home, has not been listed on the register since at least September this year.

Mr Steart has represented at least two clients while not being registered with legal authorities.
But when the Herald Sun contacted him on Thursday, Mr Steart said he thought he was registered.
"That is news to me,'' he said.

"I will have to check and get back to you."

Mr Steart has not returned the Herald Sun's calls since.

Legal Services Commissioner Michael McGarvie confirmed Mr Steart was not registered but said he could not comment any further on individual cases.

"It is the responsibility for every one of Victoria's legal practitioners to ensure that they have a current practising certificate and that they reapply for one every year,'' Mr McGarvie said.

"If they do not do this, they are committing a crime."

The maximum penalty for those masquerading as a lawyer is two years' jail for each offence.

Mr McGarvie said an unlicensed representative must make an application to the magistrate or judge if he wished to appear for someone else.

But Mr Steart made no application when he represented a man charged with making a threat to kill and firearms offences at the Frankston Magistrates' Court on December 4.

Mr Steart's client did not answer bail and magistrate Paul Smith issued a warrant for arrest.

Prosecutors and court staff said Mr Steart was a regular at Frankston Magistrates' Court and even wished security staff a "Merry Christmas" as he left the building on December 4.

An online ad for FW Robson & Co Solicitors said the firm accepted publicly funded legal aid.

"If you are due to appear in court then you need us - Graeme Steart appears personally in courts in all jurisdictions so you will not incur additional costs for barristers to appear and you will be represented by someone you know and trust,'' it says.

It is not clear when Mr Steart first became unregistered but there is no public record of him being struck off by authorities.

Lawyers can allow their registration to lapse or not apply to renew it.

In 1999, the Victorian Legal Professional Tribunal reprimanded Mr Steart and ordered him to pay $600 costs after he failed to retain a record of a cash payment made by a client.

What the general populous are tragically unaware is that Australia's 'legal system' is actually a farce.

FACT:

What the corporate media is NOT reporting:

  • The so called 'law courts' of Australia are NOT courts of law, but rather ALL are registered businesses i.e. place of business / commerce and trade, and NOT law.

For the record anyone can represent themselves in court if they wish, therefore do not need any 'license' to do so.

  • When hiring a 'real' lawyer, the public is (deliberately) NOT made aware that the lawyer makes and oath first and foremost to the Court, then their Colleagues and lastly to the Client (internally called the 3 C's), therefore ANY repsresentation before a judge may not be to the benefit of the 'client'.

  • Australia's judges / magistrates DO NOT have ANY authority over you as a human being.

Another lie spread by the corporate media?

New money for Australia in two years time

Is Australia's current currency legal tender?

Does the current plastic money hold ANY value?

Is the government aware that the people are catching on that there may be an enormous fraud that might make its way to the high courts?

What does a change in company name really mean, for example when you have debts?

What does a change of curreny really mean?

Australia will be recieving new currency in the next two years.

Here are some explanations regards to 'our' money.

“Australian Money”
is not Legal Tender Currency “of the Commonwealth”



There have been no laws enacted since 4th December 1972 by “The Parliament of the Commonwealth of Australia”, i.e. the Legislature as constituted under the “Crown” of the United Kingdom under the Commonwealth of Australia Constitution Act from 1st January 1901, inter alia with the Commonwealth of Australia Constitution Act 1900 (UK) [63 & 64 Vict.] [Ch. 12].

The Commonwealth of Australia Constitution Act from 1st January 1901, inter alia with the Commonwealth of Australia Constitution Act 1900 (UK) [63 & 64 Vict.] [Ch. 12] state at:
Chapter 1—The Parliament
Part V—Powers of the Parliament
Section 51—Legislative Powers of the Parliament

The Parliament shall, subject to this Constitution, have power to make laws for the peace, order, and good government of the Commonwealth with respect to: (i) to (xxxix) e.g. with respect to the particular matters of “mediums of exchange” “of the Commonwealth,” as in
(i) Trade and commerce with other countries, and among the States;
(iv) Borrowing money on the public credit of the Commonwealth;
(xii) Currency, coinage, and legal tender;
(xiii) Banking, other than State banking; also State banking extending beyond the limits of the State concerned, the incorporation of banks, and the issue of paper money;
(xvi) Bills of exchange and promissory notes;
(xxix) External affairs;
(xx) Foreign corporations, and trading or financial corporations formed within the limits “of the Commonwealth”;
(xxx) The relations of the Commonwealth with the islands of the Pacific;
and as at Part V—Powers of the Parliament, Section 54—Appropriation Bills.

From 5th December 1972, the “Parliament of Australia”, without the authority of the “Crown” of the United Kingdom and without the will and consent of the people “of the Commonwealth of Australia” who willed and voted to be
in one indissoluble Federal Commonwealth under the “Crown” of the United Kingdom, made laws with the enacting manner and form of “Be it enacted by the Queen, (Note: Most Excellent Majesty removed)
the Senate and the House of Representatives of Australia ..... “.

but that Queen, “Queen of Australia” under the Royal Style and Titles Act 1973 (Cth), does not hold the constitutional “Crown” of the United Kingdom of Great Britain and Northern Ireland, “Parliament of Australia” is not the same as “Parliament of the Commonwealth” and thus enacts contra to Commonwealth of Australia Constitution Act from 1st January 1901, inter alia with the Commonwealth of Australia Constitution Act 1900 (UK) [63 & 64 Vict.] [Ch. 12].

The unconstitutional “Parliament of Australia” with the enacting manner and form of “BE IT ENACTED by the Queen, (Note: Most Excellent Majesty removed) the Senate and the House of Representatives of Australia, ..... ”
unconstitutionally removed the words “of the Commonwealth” from Sections of the Banking Act 1959-1967 (Cth) with the Banking Act 1973 (Cth) Act No. 116 of 1973 Commonwealth Banks Act 1959-1968 (Cth)
with the Commonwealth Banks Act (No. 2) 1973 (Cth) Act No. 117 of 1973.

Reserve Bank Act 1959-1966 (Cth) with the Reserve Bank Act 1973 (Cth) Act No. 118 of 1973, all assented to on 26th October 1973 but not necessarily all commencing on date of assent, then amended the Banking Act 1959 again with the Banking Act (No. 2) 1973 Act No. 193 of 1973.

The Statute Law Revision Acts 1973-1974 (Cth) Act No. 216 of 1973 and Act No. 20 of 1974, both with the unconstitutional enacting manner and form of
“Be it enacted by the Queen, (Note: Most Excellent Majesty removed) the Senate and the House of Representatives of Australia, ..... ” were both deemed to commence 31st December 1973 and unconstitutionally removed the words “of the Commonwealth” from the corporate Australian system of government and from
numerous Sections of Statute Laws, including the Currency Act 1965-1969 (Cth) and the Banking Act 1959-1967 (Cth) as amended by Acts Nos. 116 and 193 of 1973.

The Banking Act 1974 (Cth) Act No. 132 of 1974 was assented to on 9th December 1974, came into operation on a date fixed by Proclamation, had the enacting manner and form of “BE IT ENACTED by the Queen, (Note: Most Excellent Majesty removed) the Senate and the House of Representatives of Australia, ..... ” and amended the Banking Act 1959-1967 (Cth) as amended by Acts Nos. 116 and 193 of 1973 and Act No. 216 of 1973 (as amended by No. 20 of 1974) and with Section 3, inserted a new “Part III—Foreign Exchange, Foreign Investment, etc.” in which Section 39 gave power to a Governor-General (who swore Allegiance to a “Sovereign of Australia”, a corporate patron “Queen of Australia” under the Royal Style and Titles Act 1973) to make regulations relating to matters of “Australian property” as defined at Section 39 (8)

“Australian currency” includes notes, coins, postal notes, money orders, bills of exchange, promissory notes, drafts, letters of credit and travellers’ cheques payable or expressed in Australian money, and also includes rights, and instruments of title, to Australian money;

“Australian securities” means securities or other property included in a class of securities
or property specified in the regulations as Australian securities;
“property” includes securities and rights under securities;
“resident” means
(a) a person, not being a body corporate, who is ordinarily resident in Australia; and
(b) a body corporate which is incorporated in Australia;
“securities” include shares, stock, bonds, debentures, debenture stock, treasury bills and notes, and units or sub-units of a unit trust, and also includes deposit receipts in respect of the deposit of securities and documents of title to securities.
And in the new Part III at Section 39 (9) states “Nothing in Part IV shall be taken as limiting the power of the Governor-General to make regulations under this section for or in relation to the control or prohibition of the importation or exportation of gold, or otherwise with respect to gold.”

But from 1973 the Governor-General swore an Oath of Allegiance to a “Sovereign of Australia”, a corporate patron “Queen of Australia” as under the Royal Style and Titles Act 1973 (Cth) who does not have the prerogative of the “Crown” of the United Kingdom to the gold as mentioned.

The Statute Law Revision Acts 1973-1974 (Cth) removed “of the Commonwealth” from the Australian system of government and in 1974 in the “Legend” on the form of paper money to be used as legal tender, the words “Commonwealth of Australia” were changed to “Australia”

This means that money in the Commonwealth of Australia can no longer be guaranteed by “the Commonwealth” because the corporate “Australian Government” now owns and controls “Australian currency” which is not legal tender currency, is therefore counterfeit and has no equity in the World’s whole economic and banking systems.
This would also mean that—the Queen’s Most Excellent Majesty, holder of the “Crown” of the United Kingdom, Elizabeth the Second by the Grace of God of the United Kingdom of Great Britain and Northern Ireland and of Her other Realms & Territories Queen, Head of the Commonwealth, Defender of the Faith—Her Heirs and Successors—and Her loyal subjects, the people of the Commonwealth of Australia—are not liable—for any debts incurred or any crimes committed by persons in the corporate Australian system of government.

The Crimes (Currency) Act 1981 (Cth) Act No. 122 of 1981, with Sections 1 to 3 commencing on assent 17th September 1981, remainder 16th December 1985, defined at its Section 3 (1)—

“Australia” includes the external Territories;
“Australian money” means a coin or paper money that is, by virtue of a law in force in Australia, lawfully current in Australia;
“authorized person” means the Treasurer or a person authorized, in writing, by the Treasurer for the purposes of the provision in which the expression occurs.

Legal tender Crown Fait Australia Money no Crown Commonwealth of Australia no Commonwealth of Australia

More Corrupt Cops - Police pay out $12.4 million in compensation

ROGUE cops responsible for brutal beatings, bullying and bungling have cost taxpayers more than $12.4 million in the past five years. 



The compensation bill includes court-awarded payouts since 2007-08 but does not include sums that may have been paid in confidential settlements of claims before trial.

It is believed that a number of payouts have been made to gangland figures and their associates.
Some recipients fought for justice for 16 years.

One claimant was Farah Jama, just 20 when wrongfully convicted of raping a woman who was found unconscious at a Melbourne bar in 2006.

Despite an airtight alibi he was jailed for 18 months, until it was revealed DNA samples had been mixed up at the forensics laboratory.

Police now question whether the woman had been sexually assaulted at all.

The largest payout was to a family awarded $2.5 million by the Court of Appeal after two police officers bashed down the front door of a home in Surrey Hills in 1993 and brutally attacked the occupants.

The court heard the two constables, who said they were responding to telephone reports of domestic violence, assaulted a 67-year-old disabled woman and her son.

The man had two broken ribs after an officer kneed him while he was handcuffed.

Flemington Kensington Community Legal Centre CEO Anthony Kelly called for an independent, less costly process to address allegations against police officers.

"It takes many years and is a long and arduous process," Mr Kelly said.

He said some victims waived their right to compensation to ensure swifter changes to police procedure or simply for an apology.

Victoria Police spokesman Lisa Beechey said incidents requiring financial settlements were rare.
"Civil legal action against Victoria Police is not a common occurrence and generally arises from an unusual set of circumstances," she said.

"Where Victoria Police is subject to civil legal action, independent legal advice is sought and decisions are made having regard to the "model litigant" guidelines and the obligations imposed by the Civil Procedure Act.''

news.com.au 25 Dec 2013

Victoria Police, a company run for profit (with the ABN: 63 446 481 493) and its employees are factually corporate entities (e.g. Sgt JOHN SMITH) that can be sued.

Currently one of the more corrupt police forces in the country, there are many more instances that involve members of the police in unlawful activities, that (deliberately?) go unreported.

The payout to gangland figures confirms that fact that Vic Pol work together with the crime syndicates, where 'bungled' actions result in 'compensation'. This is organised prior to any arrest or official action taken against the gang.

FACT:

  • Literally anyone in the business will know and cannot deny that the New South Wales police of the 1970's and 80's was the biggest drug runner in the country.

Many of the shootings and subsequent killings of police and others were related to drug turf control.

The corporate media seldom reported the truth, including the very prominent killing of two Melbourne police officers as pay back to the gangland killings, again a fact well known to all involved, but not accurately reported by the media.

Police are also instructed to intimidate and in cases beat up citizens who are aware of their Common law or Constitutional rights, something that ALL Australians can call on.

Aged pension at 70 government reaps rewards


There has recently been an announcement in Australia, which is a global policy, that the aged pension will be extended to 70 years of age up 5 years from the current 65 years of age.
 
Some people may view this as a benefit to them, a sure case that there will be no shortage of ‘testimonials’ to support this view, but the non visible agenda is more sinister.

Taking the information at face value, from government sources (which incidentally do not have to be accurate, as there is no mandate) approximately half of Australia is on some sort of social security benefit.

The two most common forms of social security support are the Newstart Allowance (colloquially referred to as the ‘dole’) and the pension. 

The ‘price’ difference is at approximately $150 between the two, per week per recipient, with the dole at approximately $250 and the pension at $400 per week. This equates to a ‘saving’ of $7,800 per year per recipient.

The government in not interested in ‘saving’ any money whatsoever, but rather the tactic of Financial Terrorism is employed in order to limit the possibilities of the masses by controlling the money supply.

The middle class are the greatest threat in terms of exposing the corruption and false information that is being propagated by governments and corporations, which work hand in hand in some of the largest frauds on record.

In order to curb the middle class, constricting the money supply is essential to limit the possibilities one has to ‘fight’ the corrupt system. This is staged at various levels from limiting movement (e.g. by inflated petrol prices – A verbose Australian Labour party policy), overinflated utility prices, overpriced consumer goods to distractions that divert funds to useless and meaningless matters, e.g. court matters, speeding fines, a tactic used so that the general populous is always 'struggling'.

The Australian government is well on its way to implementing another form of slavery / oppression on the masses, in a carefully orchestrated stealth format, which will be accepted by all.

Westpac bank mortgage fraud

Mortgagee auctions in Australia a more common than most people are led to believe, with the corporate media playing the matter down, not in the business of exposing the backroom deals of the untouchable banking elite.

Westpac bank is touted as Australia’s first bank naturally brought over from mother England, with links to the Rothschilds banking family.

Information from the ‘archives’ has been obtained by corpau of how the (Westpac) bank is involved in property theft, which includes mortgagee auctions, that are deliberately devalued by real estate agents, sold under auction for over 100’s of thousands of dollars less than the true market value, to buyers that have been put in place to specifically purchase the property for the devalued amount.

In cases where customers have more than one property with the bank, e.g. the matrimonial home and investment properties, the bank is involved with the falsifying of documents including forged signatures of the parties concerned, regarding the transfer to one owner.

In many cases the fraud goes undetected by the aggrieved party, only to find out that they do not own the asset any longer many years later.

Letters seen by corpau to and from Westpac indicate a cover up of not only facts, but also any records of the transactions ever existing, with total lack of co-operation from the bank.

An anonymous source from within the bank has mentioned that Westpac make a tidy profit from ‘this business’, which is well known within the banking industry and is not limited to the Westpac bank, but also involves the ANZ , Commonwealth and NAB banks as well.

When reported to police, these matters are usually not taken any further, as this policy is an order from the top.

Any court matters that are presented before the ‘County Court’ have to be agreed on by both parties before they are listed as matters.

The ‘County Court of Victoria’ is a privately owned and operated business with the ABN of 32 790 288 959, which has nothing to do with ‘law’ but rather is based on ‘contractual agreement’ between the listed entities, is owned and operated by the Liberty Group, stakeholder names like ABN Amro, Rothschilds and many more operating under ‘shelf’ companies for the sole purpose of tax evasion, an act which is supported by the Australian government, but illegal for the general populous to perform.

Joseph Antoun death by gunfire reveals ugly world of debt collecting and criminals

WHEN debt collector Joseph Antoun opened the door of his Sydney home early this week and was shot five times, no one was surprised - except him. 
 
He lived in the dangerous world of debt collecting but thought his reputation and connections made him untouchable. He was obviously wrong and, just like his business associate Vasko Boskovski, he was executed by a professional hitman.

Antoun's murder last Monday and Boskovski's in July has opened up a list of suspects that would fill the Entertainment Centre, as Sydney businessman Jim Byrnes quipped this week when told his protagonist Antoun was dead.

It has also exposed a murky world where debt collecting is big business - and a shady one - especially when you deal in millions.

Murdered Sydney businessman Michael McGurk was known as a violent standover man, albeit in a suit, who lived on the north shore and would buy debts confident he could recover them using his own brand of tactics.

The most common practice was for commissions to be paid to those offering to collect the debt on behalf of the client.

Respectable businesses have been known to use collection agencies who then employ less desirable types to get the money.

Antoun dabbled in debt collection - and just generally ripping people off. He was a well-known thug with a criminal record but had recently taken to using the Brothers for Life gang to do his dirty work.

Police confirmed their investigation into Antoun's murder includes Brothers for Life.

"But there are a lot of other people who may have wanted him dead," they added.

According to police, Antoun and Boskovki had links beyond the normal Sydney criminal milieu.
"If you look deeper you will find connections to figures in the Melbourne underworld as well, especially with Antoun.''

The lesser known Boskovski has been linked to a convicted Sydney Muslim terrorist.

There is some speculation their murders are a result of their switch from employing Brothers for Life as muscle to another group linked to Muslim crime groups.

Both gangs are well known to the Middle Eastern Crime Squad.

The other theory doing the rounds of the Sydney underworld is Antoun and another of his associates had been hauled in to the NSW Crime Commission for questioning more than once over the past few months.

Other crims get nervous when people like Antoun are under the glare of the all-powerful Crime Commission, who have the power to jail people simply for not answering questions. Many fellow criminals fear they are likely to cut a deal and give them up. That makes them a target to be silenced.

The pair were known to be loving family men who lived fairly unpretentious lives in simple suburban Sydney homes.

Sydney businessman Jim Byrnes has already told police he had been involved in a soured business deal with Antoun and named him as being behind a drive-by shooting of his home, vandalism of his offices and cars and assaults on his staff.

"I have never said I wanted Joe Antoun dead. I had hoped up until the news of his death that he would be arrested and charged with crimes arising from complaints I had made of Mr Antoun of arranging the drive-by shooting at my house and arranging for the assault of a colleague in Queensland and destroying my Sydney admin office and assaulting staff,'' he said.

"I had hoped that some years of incarceration may give him time to reflect on his actions."

Byrnes said he had settled the dispute with Antoun, paying him "f … off" money.

"A commercial settlement was agreed to settle any claims Antoun might have tried to bring in the future,'' Byrnes said.

"In all honesty, these claims would have been vigorously defended and were without merit, however while both corporately and personally we have a zero tolerance for thuggery, intimidation and demanding money with menace, we were extremely mindful of the toll Mr Antoun's actions had caused to families, including my own, the sheer lack of productivity based on the huge wasted time and effort dealing with heightened security, investigations, legal options and other advice. So, in order to obtain closure on the dispute, a settlement was negotiated and agreed.

"Our various company interest have now tightened corporate governance so these forms of attacks can never lead to the corporate sabotage brought about by Mr Antoun and his partner in crime.''

He said the man was a chameleon whose personality could turn on the drop of a hat.
"I first met Antoun in the company of an associate and others. Although in shorts, running shoes and long-sleeve
T-shirt he had a rather brutish appearance but he had a very polite manner and was courteous, respectful and polite,'' Byrnes said.

"I would however, some months later when we disagreed on an agreed terms of a purchase, that I began to understand that Antoun had two very different sides.

"Antoun could have a most intimidating demeanour when angry. To say I felt uncomfortable would be an understatement.''

Byrnes expected to be questioned by police over Antoun's death but, according to detectives, it may be some time before they get around to him. There are plenty of other suspects.

Jim Byrnes writes exclusively about his dealings with slain standover man Joseph Antoun.

What the corporate media fail to disclose is that debt collection in Australia IS 'unlawful'.

ANY debt collection agency CAN be dealt with in a manner that can dissolve the debt, in a 'lawful' manner.

Corpau will be posting the information regards to debt collection in the How To / How the post label.

This is all part of the 'Financial Terrorism' policy supported by the 'authorities'.

The police are also part of the 'debt collection' scam against the people of Australia.

  • The police swear an oath to the 'Queen', but are at the disposal of corporations in order to enslave the masses to 'corporate rule' rather than the Common Law and 'Constitutional' freedoms Australian citizens truly have.

The new policy is to criminalise as many citizens as possible, so that they have a 'police record' in order to control / limit options and (free) movement.

The effect is that the media verbosely denotes that (Victorian) jails are overflowing, and other makeshift measures have to be implemented.
