NEWMAN/BLEIJIE ATTACK ON CIVIL LIBERTIES CLOAKED IN UNACHIEVABLE GOALS - LNP MP'S COERCED INTO THE MOST UN-AUSTRALIAN OF ACTS IMAGINABLE

 This isn't 1971.  

Australians over the last twenty years or more have been fed a steady diet of American television.  From Sesame Street (sponsored by the letter "zee", no "zed" here) to what seems like hundreds of hours of "Law and Order", the Australian public isn't nearly so uneducated about the proper limits of police power in developed societies.

Indeed, Australian reporters routinely cite the United States' Bill of Rights and their First Amendment when threats are made by governments to a free and open press.  Australia is the only western democracy without a Bill of Rights or other codified protections against police abuse - a fact that led to the rise of Joh Bjelke-Petersen's Queensland Police State beginning with the South African Springboks tour in 1971.

It took Queenslanders from 1968 until 1980 before any Liberal Coalition member got enough balls to protest the criminal operation that was the Queensland government.  It seems both ALP and LNP parties are filled with "yes men" (and women) who prefer their big pay packets and perks to actually having to defend the Australian way of life.  Separation of powers had collapsed by 1971 with Joh running the QPS directly, and corrupt police more than willing to do his dirty work.  Joh forced all the Liberal ministers from government and gerrymandered the Queensland electoral map in what was seen as "the most criminal act every perpetrated in politics" (Evan Whittan in his book "The Hillbilly Dictator").

This isn't 1971.  And yet we now have a Premier acting like the new Hillbilly Dictator, along with his Attorney General puppet, Jarrod Bleijie - a man who's depth of legal experience is limited to property conveyancing (a job done by 20 year old clerks in most countries).  

Warrantless searches are now authorised against "bikie gangs".  People can be ordered unilaterally out of their homes with no probably cause, and in fact with no legal authority.  Police have been ordered to act in what is obviously well over-the-line intimidation with no "probably cause", and so far there has been little comment from the apparently stifled legal community of stuffed shirts.



If you describe the acts of police harassing and intimidating operators and customers of tattoo shops to anyone in free countries, they can't believe their ears.  If Saudi Arabia had tattoo parlours, this is the kind of police action you would expect.  With half or more of the 20+ year old girls in Cairns with tats, why are we harassing law abiding citizens?  Bleijie and his wife Sally have two daughters who, before you can say "habeas corpus", will be getting tramp stamps to meet the demands of their hillbilly boyfriends.  Why does he have no respect for the daughters of Queenslanders who now choose to desecrate their bodies with chinese characters and idiotic sayings?   

In an editorial by Sunshine Coast Daily (Bleijie's home electorate area) editor Mark Furier, he describes the actions of Bleijie as "courageous" in fighting crime.  Maybe Furier is scared too, because the sweeping powers Bleijie has used at the direction of the Premier can easily be turned against anyone, including the press.  If Furier decides to have lunch with a couple of colleagues, under the Newman "Vicious Unlawful Association Disestablishment Act" he can be arrested and charged, and if arraigned before an idiot judge, he can be jailed.

To the credit of the Cairns judiciary, Judge Trevor Black wasn't yet prepared to be bullied into jailing two gainfully employed men who happened to be LIVING IN THEIR OWN HOME - the crime they were charged with!

State Premiers have since the Federation disrespected the independence of the judiciary, and separation of powers.  Citizens depend on quick and decisive actions by the courts to hold rogue governments in check.  No more so than in Queensland, that ended use of the upper house which is designed in parliamentary countries to minimise government abuse.  Newman claims his new laws will "destroy bikie gangs".  The idiocy of this remark speaks for itself.  

Australians need a Bill of Rights to clearly delineate human and natural law rights, now under attack by Campbell Newman and tacitly supported by the Federal Liberals who've sat on their hands as they see fellow Australians terrorised.

Local crackpot Gavin "Don't Rape Me" King has been cowed into silence, knowing full well that an expanding witch hunt against journos can easily turn against him as his lurid journalistic stories are examined by the right wing of his party.  

Remember - you can be next!

And likely will.

Every Saturday morning from Villa Romana in the city between 40-70 cyclist ride together over a 50k circuit, some have tattoos. Will the police stop this cycle club and interrogate the tattooed and non tattooed members of this peloton? Can someone shed light on this question for me? I have a small tattoo but do not want to be incarcerated for riding amongst others who have more tattoos or who have better bikes.

Lets be real,Cairns and Qld in gemeral have gone backwards under this little Hitler.Along with his queer lawmaker, they have assembled a bunch of half baked MP's who only seem to be in it for the money and the opportunity to publicly air there "out there" thought bubbles.I remember coming to Cairns in 1982 and helped to establish a backpackers hostel and was impressed how business people mixed easily with others....it was the beginning of mainstream overseas tourism and everyone was working together to establish this sector.From memory the guys who started white water rafting were Kiwi backpackers.
Fast forward to2013 and see the difference,sections of the community hating each other,polarising politicians and a feeling that we are blindly following these politicians like Lemmings over the cliff.I have travelled to Adelaide,Sydney and Brisbane recently and it is only here that i get the feeling of hate in the newspapers.
By the way i think we are getting hoodwinked,Bris has new buses,trains ,roads ,hospitals,tunnels and we have nohinh

PART 1. Was sent this excerpt from Campbell Newman Facebook.

Mr Newman,
out of interest, what inspired you to take such a drastic course of action to try and rid Queensland, once and for all, of the bikie menace?

Was that inspiration also the reason you decided to bypass all the checks in place to prevent immoral and discriminatory laws from being passed?

And do you believe that the state of Queensland should foot the bill when this is taken before the high court, or will you be footing the bill in conjunction with your co-conspirator Mr Jarrod Bleijie?

Look forward to hearing from you,
Scott.

Campbell Newman posted back.

Hi Scott – The Premier is on the record stating that the straw that broke the camels back was the very public brawl at a Broadbeach restaurant. Parents with children in prams were cowering behind trees and tables when the brawl broke out.Eighteen bikies were arrested and seven people were injured, including four police officers, during the Broadbeach brawl which led to up to 50 bikies surrounding the Southport Police Station. Police have reported members of the criminal motorcycle gangs deliberately targeted female police officers during the brawl.

Criminal motorcycle gang members have been quoted in the Courier Mail threatening more violence:
"If anyone touches our guys in jail, it's on big time."He goes around bashing members when they are with their families and then goes and has dinner in Broadbeach.
"The boys were polite enough to not start it inside but when he was on his way out he started throwing punches."Then he got pumped. He's lucky the cops showed up when they did." "No one attacks a Bandido, especially when his kids are with him," said another member."It's our turf, we know everyone ... we get phone calls from club owners and restaurants telling us what's happening."

Apparently a number of individuals who are complaining on this page believe this is fine. It's interesting to note a large number of these individuals do not live in Queensland. The Premier has listened to Queenslanders and has taken action to give the Queensland Police Service and the Crime and Misconduct Commission the tools and resources they need to stamp out criminal gangs in our state.

He has previously indicated that if there is a high court challenge to the laws, the Queenlsand Government will just create new laws. We will not stand by and let certain groups who consider themselves above the law continue to endanger the lives of Queenslanders. –

Scott xxxxxxxx responded. -

So a brawl occurred between 2 gangs, the other people hurt were police officers performing their duty.

Common assault:
Any person who unlawfully assaults another is guilty of a misdemeanour, and is liable, if no greater punishment is provided, to imprisonment for 3 years.

Serious assaults:
(1) Any person who—
(b) assaults, resists, or wilfully obstructs, a police officer while acting in the execution of the officer’s duty, or any person acting in aid of a police officer while so acting;

Maximum penalty — (a) for subsection (1)(b), if the offender assaults a police officer in any of the following circumstances—
(i) the offender bites or spits on the police officer or throws at, or in any way applies to, the police
officer a bodily fluid or faeces;
(ii) the offender causes bodily harm to the police officer;
(iii) the offender is, or pretends to be, armed with a dangerous or offensive weapon or instrument — 14
years imprisonment

There's your course of action, nail the bikies that punched each other for 3 years, those that punched police for 14.

50 bikies surround the Southport police station.

Riot:
(1) If — (a) 12 or more persons who are present together (assembled persons) use or threaten to use unlawful violence to a person or property for a common purpose; and (b) the conduct of them taken together would cause a person in the vicinity to reasonably fear for the person’s personal safety; each of the assembled persons commits the crime of taking part in a riot.
Maximum penalty — (a) if the offender causes grievous bodily harm to a person, causes an explosive substance to explode or destroys or starts to destroy a building, vehicle or machinery—life imprisonment; or (b) if— (i) the offender is armed with a dangerous or offensive
weapon, instrument or explosive substance; or (ii) property is damaged, whether by the offender or
another of the assembled persons—7 years imprisonment; or © otherwise—3 years imprisonment. (2) For subsection (1)(b) , it is immaterial whether there is or is likely to be a person in the vicinity who holds the fear mentioned in the subsection. (3) In this section— building includes structure. vehicle means a motor vehicle, train, aircraft or vessel.

Suppression of riot
It is lawful for any person to use such force as is necessary to suppress a riot, a and is reasonably proportioned to the danger to be apprehended from its continuance.

I'm certain Southport is not the only police station on the Gold Coast.

By the way, all these have been taken from the Criminal Code Act 1899 – Current as at 17 October 2013.

They deliberately targeted female officers. I would expect that they also deliberately targeted male officers. The way you've stated that, to me, says that you have less faith in your states female officers' ability to handle difficult situations. Are they not expected to have the same level of competence as the guys?

As for threatening more violence, all they've said is that they will retaliate against any attacks against people they consider family. Given that they're in gaol, I think that puts the power in the state's hands to stop any further escalation. Don't want them to get violent again, make sure that the prisoner's safety is assured (something I would expect to be provided to ANY prisoner, regardless of sex, race, religion or other affiliation)

So I ask again, what inspired you to bring in laws that impinge on the liberties of anyone you deem to have had their day? And why did you bypass all the checks?

Amen.

It is an outright breach of the separation of powers, which is a cornerstone of our democracy. However sadly the halfwits, morons and fucktards amongst the voters don't understand this and never will. Also basically we are all supposed to be equal before the law, those of us who wear biker leathers and ride Harleys and those of us who wear thousand dollar suits and live in mansions. Bringing in separate legislation and separate penalties for one section of the community and then building special jails for them is totalitarianism. This whole legislation is appalling to say the least. We are on our way to a fascist dictatorship. Who is next on the agenda? Yeah, I know, I also fear it will be the unions, then environmental leaders.

Anonymous 9:44, thanks for that. I think the biggest outrage to civil liberties is that we are no longer policing a person's behaviour by arresting them for the crimes they commit but we are criminalising a person's friends, fashion choices and the vehicle they own.

Tony Hillier, very sad to think you may be right but I think you are correct. In the words of Martin Niemoller:

First they came for the Jews
and I did not speak out
because I was not a Jew.
Then they came for the Communists
and I did not speak out
because I was not a Communist.
Then they came for the trade unionists
and I did not speak out
because I was not a trade unionist.
Then they came for me
and there was no one left
to speak out for me.

So Trevor Black in Cairns has defied the Newman Government, without being betlittled and demonised by the Murdoch media machine. Not so a Gold Coast female magistrate who granted bail to a biker arrested under Nnewman's new laws. The Murdoch media has written a real piece of shit on her, pointing out she is a FAILED ALP candidate and making a point of saying that she didn't observe at one time, the minutes silence for veterans. One rule for the men, another for women. The LNP are still at it, putting the boot into women, presumeably this time to scare the male judiciary as well.

When the LNP won the last election in a landslide, with many ALP voters deciding to give them the vote, I wondered how long it would take for the LNP to fuck up! Much like alcoholics in charge of the brewery... Little time at all..

Cynic said...

Oh come on everyone, these laws won't stay in place for long. I predict that sooner or later some ambitious over-zealous young cop hoping for a fast ride up the promotions ladder will pull over some LNP honcho out doing his macho-male-hiding-little-dick thing, riding his Harley over to Mummy's place. The cop will pull him over, boot him up the groin so hard he splits his testicles, forcing on a heart attack and promptly karks it. Then the shit will hit the fan. The Harley rider will be revealed as an LNP identity, the local LNP branches will all be on the phone screaming to Herr Newman, the young cop will be banished out of Queensland, and amendments to the legislation will sneak in through the wee hours of the morning unannounced. It's only a matter of time.

Observer said...

Anonymous 22.10, Queensland voters demonstrated their stupidity by voting a government out, without thinking what they were voting in and giving a man who had no experience in Parliament whatsoever, the greatest majority in a government in Australia, ever. Never under-estimate the extent of the sheer stupidity of the Queensland voter. If the media told them to do so, they would all vote for a dead dog. Look at our local regional council. Once elected, nobody hears from most of the Councillors. In fact most people I talk to don't even know their names. There you go, more proof of the stupidity of voters.

Anonymous said...

Labor on many fronts have learnt valuable lessons about their own behaviour, the way they treated the public and the voters. Some said after the last state election that Labor would be in opposition for at least 10 years. The irresponsible voters of Cairns elected a tired old sook as mayor and a bunch of 'what's there names'. It is difficult to see the sook or the others being there in 2 years time. It is difficult to see the lnp holding onto the seats of Cairns, Barron River and Cook in the next state election and once Abbott and Hockey unveil the commission of audit cuts to the nation, it might also be a short term venture for them. In a time when individual need is a significantly greater priority than the opportunity for national, state or local prosperity, the actions and behaviour of the lnp will make it easy for the voters to remove them and their arrogance.

Too many will suffer until that time.

Cynic said...

We won't be able to get rid of Herr Adolf Newman for at least 9 more years. It may well be by that time that they will have outlawed any political opposition. I fully expect to see union leaders jailed, and unions smashed within three years. It has always been a core policy of the LNP to have a de-unionised workforce. Read their party platform and you will find it clearly and succinctly states they want the abolition of trade unions. Watch the pressure being put on at the moment to abolish penalty rates and bring in the 7 day working week. I confidentally predict Newman and his government will do this to immense cheers from LNP supporters. Before the cheering and champagne drinking is over however, the sporting industry will start their whinging that their industry will be rooted. Your typical LNP politician and voter is incapable of thinking of the economic importance of leisure time on the Australian economy.
We are in for a hell of a lot of changes and our way of life will be greatly altered. However don't think for a moment that voters will be able to vote Newman and his LNP out so easily. This government is the closest we have had to a fascist government and they will not surrender power so easily. I fully expect to see them jail political opponents on trumped up charges.

Anonymous said...

Like Cynic, I don't have any expectations at all from the Queensland voter. I know they are heavily influenced by the mainstream media machine. They will vote for whoever Murdoch tells them to vote for like good little children and that is that. So until Newman does something to irritate Murdoch, he stays as Premier.

I see in the compost today that King is still doing the job of the Mayor and planning the CBD.

Nice one hey?

Bob R. I suspect the Newman Government are getting the media to put pressure on the judiciary. Yes I also saw that story on the female Magistrate who bailed the young biker. Let there be no misunderstanding, the judiciary is now under threat from the LNP government. In typical right wing fashion, they will go for the female judges and magistrates first. Murky waters are ahead.

We are all supposed to be equal before the law. That is one of the tenets of our democracy and won which was hard won. Bringing in special laws for one group of people, bikers, is not democratic and a breach of the separation of powers which is also a cornerstone of our democracy. Introducing special penalties, special jails for one section of the community smacks of Nazism. Newman is going too far. NO, never think for a moment I am a supporter of the biker culture. However if one of them robs a store, then he or she should receive the same justice as a businessman who might also rob the same store. Equal justice for all. That is what we fought for over the centuries.

Alarmed as well said...

We are supposed to have under our Constitution, "Separation of Powers" which see the role of parliament as separate to the role of the judiciary. Newman has blurred the lines between the two here, which is also a huge danger. It is NOT up to the government to be judge and jury. Secondly "Outraged" is correct. The law should apply equally to all who are before it. Cherrypicking which people will get stiffer sentences, and which people won't, is a dangerous corruption of our democratic rights. To sum up, everyone should be starting to feel a wee tad worried about our boy Attorney General especially since his only legal experience since uni was working as a conveyancing clerk!!

Yes, the Newman Government are using the bikies, in much the same way the Nazis and the Fascists such as Mussolini and Franco used "the communists" to flex their political muscle on the people. It is an outright breach of democracy in that it corrupts the separation of powers and strips away the tenet of equal justice for all. It gives the government the right to decide who is a criminal. It gives the government the right to decide who gets what sentence. They have abandoned the democratic principle of equal justice for all. We haven't seen anything like that in centuries in our Westminster system of government.
Moreover, Newman is now attacking the judiciary and legal fraternity who have lodged strong protests.
Mussolini and Franco hanged judges who opposed them.
Damned right some of us are getting bloody worried. The scariest thing is the people of Queensland are so fucking retarded as to not understand what is happening.

We, the people are so focussed on single issues that we are missing the big picture - connect the dots - the two party system is a farce perpetuated to keep us thinking we are achieving something when 'voting the rascals out'. In fact the 2 parties are TWO CHEEKS ON THE SAME BUM. It is crucial to 'get this' understanding. They bow to the same masters, and its all about bringing in their One World Government by stealth ie Bush's and Howard's and Brown's and Blair's so-called "New World Order". This involves the step by step dismantling of our private property and individual rights. I am new to this blog and pleased to discover it, but for the BIG PICTURE I highly urge you all to listen to Leon (truckie) online on Fair Dinkum Radio. Learn about the Lima Agreement, and especially now about UN Agenda 21 - the United Nations takeover of our properties by stealth through ICLEI, an international German based organisation that is embedding its members and their UN programs into our local councils. The CRC is a member of ICLEI and You the rate payer are being milked to pay for this privilege of a United Nations sovereign takeover. Campbell Newman knows all about UN Agenda 21, having been Mayor of Brisbane. We are in Deep trouble. Wakeup sheeple. Do your research asap and awaken others. We, the people are on our own and must make a stand together. The 'Wolves in sheeps' Clothing' are running the show.

I suspect Ruby's comment applies equally to the majority of the current 'wet-behind-the-ears' members of Queensland's State Parliament, who would have no better understanding of the Westminster system of government, its tenets and the separation of powers than the "great unwashed".

For the record, I am no card-carrying ALP supporter and I do not sympathise with the party's current lowly status, for which it only has itself to blame.

Just on another issue, but the cunning deceit is much the same. Just as Newman is deceiving the uneducated and gullible that losing their basic rights to equal justice is because he is getting tough on crime and the bikies, we have Tony Abbott now doing a turn around on climate change. Yep good old Tony sucked in the uneducated by declaring global warming a load of crap, but in his latest interview with The Washington Post now says he agrees with it and agrees with an emissions trading scheme. He turned global warming and the carbon tax into an election issue, got the vote from the morons of Australia, and now he is in office, he now says he agrees there is climate change. How easy it is to deceive the voter.

As one person wrote very succinctly, "Not all bikies are criminals, not all criminals are bikies." Newman himself appears to be rattled by the community's response, and statements by the likes of newly elected Clive Palmer who has quipped, "The only separation of powers we want in Queensland is to see Newman gone."
My take is that the public generally see the State Government as "going too far" on this one.
However it has acted as a diversion from the preparations his government are making to privatise water and electricity assets, changes to WorkCover and the continuing stripping of union gains.

Judge Trevor Black my arse, he is a dishonest grubby Roman Catholic magistrate piece of shit protected by the child molesters in the church and playing his own game and he is quite prepared to play the police game when it suits him and protect his Roman Catholic brothers when it beneficial to him or his dishonest catholic brothers.

PRAVDA was the Russian Communist news media and only ever supported the government line. Our Murdoch media is following suit. Our radio shock jocks would have done well in communist Russia.

You're all so mean and cruel to me. You only ever pick on me, never Trouty or Kempton. Just me. Just because the people of Queensland want us to get rid of the bikeys and we are doing it. I mean I got rid of the Rebels and Satan's Cavalry and pissed them all off to Mulgrave so Curtis Pitt can deal with them. Do I get any thanks from Hillbilly and you lot? No. We mean what we say about getting tough on crime. Just think about a biker being dressed in a pink onesie being in isolation for 23 hours a day for 10 to 15 years. Think about it. Now isn't that being tough or isn't it. Awesome. I am so excited about it. I can't wait to see them all dressed up in their onesies sitting all alone in their cells. Cool. It is why being a member of Campbell Newman's government is soooooo exciting. Campbell has another novel idea for our prisoners which is also just sooooooooo exciting and awesome. Because our prisons are already overflowing, because we have been tough on crime, we're going to outsource our prisons and prisoners to Papua New Guinea or some place like that. Now isn't that just so exciting. It's never been done before, ever. I'm so thrilled and honoured to be part of one of the most innovative governments the world has ever seen. Awesome. We've all been asked to provide our ideas on how to punish these criminals who will be sent to PNG. My suggestion is to bring back the rack which I think is so cool. Awesome. Campbell said he would consider it. I said I would love to see a demonstration and I know Trouty would too. Awesome. I see some commo unions are whinging about losing workers compensation. We all discussed whether some of these commo union leaders should be sent off to PNG and the first lot to be blooded on the rack. Gotta go, sooooo much to do.

For God's sake, what is Queensland coming to? Putting a man in isolation for 23 hours out of 24 hours for up to fifteen years? This is barbarism and something which is the practice of tinpot dictatorships, NOT Queensland 2013.
This is extreme cruelty, the like of which Western democracies have long abandoned. Any prisoner subjected to these horrific conditions is likely to end up insane, and on medication for the rest of his life. Is this punishing a person? To see him lose his mind? This legislation is nothing short of fascism in action.

Good point, being "tough" on criminals should never be confused with outright sadism. Yes Alison, what is Queensland coming to? We are being dragged backwards to very dark times. I read somewhere where our Queensland jails are full up and the boy wonder the Attorney General is going to release some prisoners earlier to make more room. What will happen when he can no longer do this, but has more and more prisoners to put into prisons? I confidentally predict Newman will re-introduce the death penalty.
