Urgent Attention: Under the Cover of COVID

by Felicity Hingston

Our ‘friendly’ government wants to track your spending and snatch your savings!

While we battle the distractions of the ‘deadly’ cold virus; the legality of the ridiculous containment ‘measures’, the efficacy and availability of alternatives to a vaccine – and so forth — plus the lure to the various impending lawsuits against government and health authorities who have failed us… etc.

There is yet another agenda going on before our noses — total financial control.

BUT there are valiant defenders of our financial freedom, and they need our support!  

The Financial Agenda

Australia Citizens Party (ACP) media release 2 Oct 2020 says:

“The Senate on Wednesday 7 October will vote on the Morrison government’s bill to extend the trials of the Indue cashless welfare card. These trials are part of the government’s and banks’ creeping cashless agenda, to force Australians into electronic payments and effectively trap them in banks. The government’s bill to ban cash transactions over $10,000 is part of the same agenda. While Australians angrily reacted in huge numbers to the $10,000 cash ban, which sparked an insurrection against the bill in the government’s own ranks, too many have failed to recognise the cashless welfare card is a foot in the door for the same agenda…

“…the program to force Australians into a cashless economy system that will enable the private banking cartel and government to ‘monitor and measure’—their words—the financial activities of every Australian.”

This release is titled “Your grandma is next! Fight Morrison’s creeping cashless economy agenda”.

Make Your Voice Heard

To oppose this push to trap us all into a cashless economy, call cross-bench Senators Jacqui Lambie, Stirling Griff, and Rex Patrick before Wednesday to demand they oppose the bill.

Indue Welfare Card

The push for the welfare card (i.e., CASHLESS) is to ensure that welfare recipients in highly disadvantaged communities spend their money ‘responsibly’ — but, don’t fall for that! The card is really a totalitarian technological short-cut — to avoid addressing the real causes of welfare dependency and drug/alcohol abuse in such communities. The program on ‘trial’ is intended Australia-wide, to include recipients of the aged pension also.

The government calls the pension “welfare”, a huge insult to those who have contributed all their lives (‘Your grandma is next’). The trials already include recipients of disability and carers’ payments.

On 11 September 2019, the Citizens Party exposed how the Indue cashless welfare card is part of the broader push for a cashless economy.

The banks are already successfully using the pandemic disruption to reduce cash & get people to rely on electronic payment systems.

The $10,000 cash ban has been stalled through public backlash – it’s officially still in Parliament as a bill and the government has gone ‘very quiet’ on the issue. But we must keep fighting!

This cashless welfare card is a significant step.

The Australia Citizens Party (ACP) media release 23 Sep 2020 warned: “Two months to win the fight to protect Australian bank deposits from ‘bail-in’”.

In brief, Malcolm Roberts (One Nation Senator) does not trust the wording of the 2018 law (passed without a quorum, at the 11th hour, on the 14th of February, 2018) — “Legal analysis of the crisis resolution powers legislated secretively for APRA in February 2018 has confirmed they could be used to bail-in bank deposits” — and is seeking, with his amendment bill, to amend the 2018 law to explicitly exclude deposits.

The government is resisting any change to the law, denying that deposits can be bailed-in. However, it admits the law is from the Financial Stability Board (FSB), which applies bail-in to bank depositors! The FSB and the IMF are directing Australia to implement stronger bail-in laws like those in NZ, the EU, and the US, which apply to deposits.

ACP states three points being asked of the House, that is to:

  • pass Senator Robert’s bill
  • block the stronger bail-in legislation the government is planning
  • rescind APRA’s crisis resolution powers and pass instead the Separation of Banks Bill 2019 to protect deposits from speculation.

My Bank Visit

On a recent visit to my bank, which has decided to change accounts and, to give them credit, sent me enough information that I was able to understand what my options were, I asked the young employee: Did she know anything about ‘bail-in’ (It is no secret that bank employees have incentives to hold deposits with the bank that employs them). She had NO IDEA!

So, I can only guess few people are looking at this, let alone ‘joining the dots’. It ‘looks fine’, since few people, myself included, have the ‘supposedly exempt’ $250K. No worries….

Unless they pull a swiftie (oh, would they?) and just bail in anyone or everyone?!!

Government has a history of shifting the line in the sand, and this could well be just that.
