Daniel Andrews – How Many People Have Your Lockdowns Killed?

Daniel Michael Andrews, your government has made Melbourne the most locked down city in the world.

You act as if you do that for safety but you focus too much on Covid statistics and ignore other causes of death. I was a health professional in your state for a quarter of a century.

So I ask you: how many people have your lockdowns killed?

How many old people have died of grief in nursing homes when lockdowns have cut off their social contacts?

What has happened to the suicide rate during your 6th lockdown? Especially the teenage suicide rate.

What has happened to the breast cancer death rate ? And death rates from other cancers and other diseases?

In the UK 70,000 more people have died at home since the pandemic.

Have more people died at home during your lockdowns? How many of those deaths were preventable? Did they get adequate pain relief?

Daniel Andrews, the people have a right to know.

ScoMo – How Many People Do Lockdowns Kill?

Dear Prime Minister Morrison,

I write to you from Melbourne, the most locked down city in the world.

I was a health professional in the State of Victoria from 1982 till 2018.

The current Victorian government is now trashing human rights and freedom in ways that kill people.

As I understand it:

A. The teenage suicide rate has doubled.

B. Deaths from breast cancer have increased.

C. Grief stricken residents in Aged Care are stopping eating when they lose contact with loved ones and are then dying. This would be death by starvation in modern Australia.

I know of numerous doctors who are deeply concerned that many other ways of dying from lockdowns will emerge in the future.

Now is the time to start preventing those deaths instead of ignoring them.

There is one simple question that needs to be addressed.

I call upon you, Mr Morrison, to use all the power and influence of your office to address it:

HOW MANY PEOPLE DO LOCKDOWNS KILL?

Government By Ignorance

Florence Nightingale – she cared.

Angie (an assumed name) is a professional woman on the front lines in the health system in Melbourne, Victoria. She cares about truth and about other people.

After her first dose of the Pfizer vaccine she started having stabbing sensations in the chest and hoped it was nothing serious. (This is a common reaction to chest pain.)

But one evening an online friend who was an experienced emergency department doctor told her “Go and get it checked out.” Angie went straight to an emergency department of a major Mellbourne public hospital.

At midnight.

About half a dozen people were in the waiting room.

Angie told the young triage nurse that she had had chest pain for a few days and believed it was because of the Pfizer vaccine. The nurse said an electrodardiogram would be performed. This is a standard test for chest pain. It is a quick and simple test to perform but often needs specialist nursing or medical eyes to interpret accurately.

Four hours later Angie had not been seen. She went back to the counter and told the same nurse behind the security screen that she had to work in the morning and was going to leave. The nurse said, “If you still aren’t feeling well, go to your GP.” (General Practitioner or Family Doctor)

Angie left, disgusted.

The ECG had not been performed.

What sort of health care is this?

The Victorian government imprisons five and a half million people in their own homes when diagnosed cases of Covid in the whole state are double figures.

But when the vaccine causes chest pain, basic testing doesn’t get done.

Back at home, Angie could not report chest pain on the government website designed to report side effects.

This. Government. Does. Not. Care.

Respecting The Police – It’s a Two Way Street

An angry citizen and a police officer in Melbourne, Australia at a Freedom Day Rally on 5th September 2020

I believe any society needs a respected police force to be sustainable. But I believe the man throwing the punch in the above photo is a freedom fighter, fighting the tyranny of Socialist Left political leader Daniel Michael Andrews.

Respect for police is impossible when the police become a political tool of a corrupt government or corrupt or incompetent politicians. I believe the police officer under attack by an outraged citizen in this photo is an innocent victim of the immoral incompetent government of Dictator Dan.

I believe all police officers in Victoria should be urging their police association to protest publicly in the loudest possible terms against the misuse of police services against the Victorian people by the Andrews government and the Australian Labor Party.

Premier Daniel Andrews of Victoria leads a political party where a politician can use the police to trash the democratic rights of a citizen at election time.

Premier Daniel Andrews leads a government which is using the police and even the the Australian Defence Force to imprison five million innocent people in their own homes.

Premier Daniel Andrews trashes the right to freedom of speech leading to the sort of righteous anger you can see in the above photo taken at a Freedom Day Rally in Melbourne yesterday.

Individual police officers do not deserve this, but such anger is the future of police work in Victoria if Socialist Left tyranny keeps misusing police services for destroying people’s lives.

Shame on you, Daniel Andrews.

Shame!

Shame!

Shame!

A Socialist Left Reign Of Terror.

Today is the  227th anniversary  of the start of the Reign Of Terror.

On this day the Australian Labor Party continues to use fear make a massive power grab in the State Of Victoria by imprisoning 5 million people in their own homes, by forcing most businesses to stop trading and by denying the fundamental right to protest and the right to freedom of speech.

Today an elected people’s representative of this political party told me that I was not taking the deaths of geriatrics seriously but that the deaths of aborted unborn babies did not count because those babies were “not human”.

Yesterday former conservative Victorian Premier Jeff Kennett tweeted this:

Today current Socialist Left Premier Daniel Andrews was asked to comment on this distinction between dying from Covd-19 as the cause and dying with Covid and other diseases contributing to the death.

Andrews said, “I’ve got absolutely nothing to say about anything that person says. Nothing.”

Former Premier Kennett called for an end to dictatorial fear mongering and deceptive statistics.

Dictator Dan refused to talk.

Meanwhile 5 million Victorians imprisoned in their own homes by Andrews’ decisions are terrified of a future while this socialist destroys the economy by shutting it down.

POLICE STATE BASTARDRY

I denounce the police state bastardry of Premier Daniel Andrews’ Labor Party government in the State of Victoria.

In 2016 when I lobbied them for memorial tree plantings, they trashed my civic and democratic rights to protect a Labor Party politician from doing her job.

Then they trashed the basic legal rights of Australia’s second most successful ever Catholic, Cardinal George Pell, and imprisoned him. The High Court Of Australia set him free in a resounding 7-0 judgement.

Now they are isolating old people from their families without giving them any choice.

This socialist left government is forcing most businesses in the state to stop normal trading.

This “government” is imprisoning millions of innocent Victorians in their own homes.

That is Victoria.

I condemn “Dictator Dan” for the anti-democratic, anti-freedom practices of his Big Government.

May God help us all wherever such “socialists” destroy people’s lives.

I Will Tell My Story #3: Free In A Madrassah But Not In Victoria

GHF - PP

In the past year, I have lived in three very different places.

First, there was almost three weeks as a non-paying guest receiving asylum in an Indonesian Pondok Pesantren (madrassah). This learning institution gave me asylum under Islamic law after I explained to them my reasons that I went to Indonesia to renounce Australian citizenship under Indonesian law. My long standing commitment to studying the 99 Islamic names of God, asmaulhusna, from a western perspective is probably the biggest reason that I received this rare privilege. Or perhaps I should call it a rare recognition of my fundamental human rights.

Then in the second week of August last year, I was arrested and placed in solitary confinement in an Immigration Detention Centre in Indonesia for three months.

Thirdly, after being deported to Australia against my will, I have been living in Premier Daniel Andrews’ Police State Of Victoria.

What follows is a comparison of life in these three places.

In the Pondok (madrassah) I had the most freedom, and was in the most democratic and civilised environment of all three places. The Islamic lifestyle is one of clean living and devotion to God. The People talked softly and modestly and were always friendly.

I could come and go whenever I liked, and on the rare occasions, when a door was locked but I wanted to enter, someone would invariably unlock it for me.

The religious tolerance was extraordinary. In an institution dedicated to the very devout Islamic practice, I was totally accepted even though I was not a Muslim and not engaging in all Islamic rituals. This is because Islamic people in Indonesia have a very widespread and deep tolerance for their own principle La Ikraha Fiddin. (There is no compulsion in religion.)

I learnt a lot among those students about good calm living and made a little film about the liberation and enrichment which can be gained by prayer.

The Islamic environment was democratic because all the people there had freely consented to be there and were proud to be there. In any democratic organisation governing by the consent of the governed is essential.

The immigration detention centre was obviously very different. I was there because immigration officials believed I had broken Indonesian law. I disagreed with them and still do. The head of the madrassah and the very devout mayor of the large city in which it was located both agreed that from the religious point of view I had the right to seek “aman” (meaning safety) in Indonesia.

I was not in the detention centre by consent but my basic needs were met. There were lots of great people there. I got enough exercise and the food was nutritious and I was always delivered three meals a day. The ventilation of my cell was great. It was never too hot or too cold. I had all the sterile drinking water and washing water and toiletries  I needed. I received the medical care I needed.

I was able to communicate with a senior guy in America’s National Coalition For Men who wrote a letter to the head of the Detention Centre explaining why he thought my actions were justified. For two months I was able to engage online in artistic collaborations with Australians of which I remain proud.

There was a good balance between privacy and social interaction.

I also became much more accurate at kicking a soccer ball.

Compared to those two Indonesian places Daniel Andrews’ Victoria just doesn’t measure up. In this sad state all of the worst traditions of Terra Nullius are fully maintained. (It has to be said that there are a few great people here who have ensured that my experience here these last 8 and a half months has not been as bad as I feared it would be.)

This is a state where too many people live in fear.

Thats not surprising. If anyone was silly enough to go and sit on a park bench here in Victoria’s capital, Melbourne, that person would risk being fined $1,600.

Widespread fear now means that the economy is being trashed to fight a disease which is well under control by global standards.

Daniel Andrews has had the most draconian lockdown laws in Australia but this severity has given him the least success in getting the sort of community effort going where a virus can be controlled.

Freedom works, Daniel Andrews. Your Police State tactics don’t.

Democracy dies when the governing political party uses scandalous branch stacking the way it’s been used in Daniel Andrews’ branch of the Australian Labor Party and that party stays in power.

Being civilised is impossible when the government treats outdoor activities like golf and fishing in wide open spaces as dangerous.

Australian Rules Football is sometimes said to be the religion of  Melbourne. AFL footy was born in Victoria and none of the best clubs are playing here anymore. The grand final appears more likely to be played in Brisbane or Perth than in its normal home of Melbourne.

For any government in the world, getting the balance right between the economy and the Corona-virus pandemic is going to be hard.

Daniel Andrews and his political party proved to me in 2016 and 2017 that they don’t respect people like me or our rights or needs.

Nothing has changed.

Compared with being in Victoria, life in the Pondok in Indonesia was very very good.

I miss you, Gus.

Religious Persecution – Joan Of Arc and Cardinal George Pell

with Pell

Joan of Arc was executed on the 30th of May 1431.

She was a religious warrior.

What was done to her by the English forces invading France and their French allies was wrong.

Joan wore male clothes to protect her from rape and this dress was part of the “reason” she was executed.

Cardinal George Pell was found guilty of molesting two boys while wearing garments which made that molestation impossible. These traditional garments worked to prevent what Pell was shamefully accused of.

I believe that the conviction and imprisonment of Australia’s second most successful catholic was an injustice on a par with what was one to Saint Joan.

I dont have time now to state all the other reasons I believe the treatment of Pell can be compared with what was done to Joan Of Arc. (I am going out this Sunday afternoon in Australia to have a kick of the footy (a.k.a. football) with a Man Of God.)

Suffice to say the High Court Of Australia overturned Pells’ conviction in a 7-0 judgement.

I too suffered injustice in the so-called justice system of the police state of Victoria.

Shame on you, Socialist Left Premier Daniel Andrews.

Shame!

Shame!

Shame.!
