Hang-up the Phone, Big Brother is Listening

the Australian Government is spying on youIn an another attempt by the Australian Government to whittle away the freedoms of ordinary Australians, an order spearheaded by Australian Government intelligence agencies to force all Australian telecommunications companies to collect internet data and phone records of all Australians for up to two years has been announced.

Announced in a discussion paper that was released by the Attorney-General’s Department, 40 proposals have been submitted by Australia’s intelligence agencies that are intended to give them more powers to infringe on your privacy.

As discussed in the paper, some of the changes to the Telecommunications (Interception and Access) Act 1979 that have been proposed are:

  •  15 (A): An offence for failure to assist in the decryption of communications (ie.. Fine and prosecute telecommunication companies for not sharing your private information)
  • 15 (C): Tailored data retention periods for up to 2 years for parts of a data set, with specific time frames taking into account agency priorities, and privacy and cost impacts (ie.. All internet data and telephone records must be retained for up to 2 years.

Even more disturbing than the changes proposed to the Telecommunications (Interception and Access) Act 1979, the Australian Government is proposing the following changes to the Intelligence Services Act 2001 .

  • 17 (A): Add a new ministerial authorisation ground where the Minister is satisfied that a person is, or is likely to be, involved in intelligence or counter‐intelligence activities. 

The changes proposed under section 17 (A) mean that a ministerial authorisation under the proposed changes to section 13A would usually be issued for a discrete activity for a specified purpose.

So what is a discrete activity and what is a specified purpose? I looked within the document for a definition of discrete activity and specified purpose. As expected, the document doesn’t define these terms, leaving them open to interpretation and abuse.

Under the guise of protecting all Australians from the threats posed by al-Qaeda, these proposed changes by the Australian Government will effectively create a long-tail record of all internet usage and phone calls without the users consenting to it and being made aware of the surveillance.

Not since the fall of communism in Eastern Europe have we seen such an attempt to infringe on the rights and privacy of ordinary civilians.

In relation to the use of Internet and other telecommunications services, Internet Service Providers (ISP’s) and telephone service providers are required to comply with the privacy protection provisions of the Telecommunications Act 1997 (C’th) and the Telecommunications (Interception) Act 1979 (C’th). These proposed changes make an absolute mockery of the current legislation.

The severity of these proposed changes by the Australian Government has been undermined by the lack of reporting in main stream media outlets. In fact, it appears agencies based outside of Australia are more interested in these changes than Australians themselves. There are some within the Australian Government that recognize the significance of these changes.

One government official was recently quoted as saying:

It will be one of the most controversial inquiries the committee has ever held

Privacy, in my opinion, is a fundamental right. If a government has no reason to investigate your actions online and has no suspicions that would warrant the storage and collection of your private data, for what reason do they intend to collect and store your internet data and phone records for two years?

What the Globalists in power fear the most is broad awareness from the public about this proposal.

It’s obvious that the Australian Government doesn’t want the public to know about this and that they don’t want the public to debate and scrutinize the validity of the proposal.

Recently, a government official from the Attorney-General’s Department, Claudia Hernandez, wrote in her decision about releasing parts of the highly censored document that the release of some sections of it:

may lead to premature unnecessary debate and could potentially prejudice and impede government decision-making

No government, especially the Australian Government, has the right to breach our fundamental right to privacy and no government has the right to view our private information without a valid warrant.

I’m sick of how these Globalists are constantly infringing on our right to privacy. Get out of our lives, leave us alone and don’t infringe on a birth right everyone is entitled to.

    “may lead to premature unnecessary debate and could potentially prejudice and impede government decision-making.”

    Impede grubberment decision-making,thats the crutch right there.These globalist UN suck-ups need to step back and start acting like Australians and for Australians and leave the global dictatorship-ing to the USA and their criminal elite.

    It’s bad enough that they put Australia in massive debt befor the big GFC was over,but then again that was their plan…servitude to the UN,IMF take-over club.

    SCUM.

    ukraine is being control by Russia again, they demand ukraine speak russsian the ukraines say that is treason when the ukranine president declare it so. the congress needs to vote on that they were not addressed

    i dont understand the issue with Australia but ENgland lose their right to guns and all rights i didnt know before last week I bet the wueen of england had command this australia comply or else, queen is illumnati and trample england for the satan return when a dudley brown a NRa president was drumming up support to fight hillary clinton she is a illuminati and directed by satan UN meeting to disarm all AMericans as well as the rest of the world of hand guns then rifles the you wife and daugthers and then all your valuables and your life, to put interesting notion , was a goat raising website and at the end of the site the author was upset about the weather and did their own research and found out we are in a interglacial melt down the past 20000 year we had 20 or so of them well we are at the top of the cycle and these warm up are natural, no human fossil fuels use is the cause for the warm up , there were very precise in their logic and it seem to be that the power of today know this, the natural resources we dry up when the temperature skydrives to 6 degrees and at least 18 feet of ice and snow will be on the earth sea level drop 350 feet this means the few the swift and the resourceful will live and the rest will die , or be saved through Christ Jesus, anyway it is my analysis why all these countries are acting like they are on the last days of planet earth.

    you can think about the islam law. the earth polar shift the continents coming together the collapse of every country to the form of one ass backward buttock screwed antichrist with a boiled faced fallen star asswipe satan , but if we can come together and humble ourselves repent unto YAHweh throught Jesus Christ the hope for tommorrow is for me is angel gabielle riding on the back of satan
    wipping his buttocks with a holy ugly stick the whole way to hell

    I hopefully getting pictures of the whole thing so the survivors have a series of pictures of every hit on the holy ugly stick on the screaming of the thorns tear up his buttocks and all the illuminata and the bilderbury group and Vatican occult and the st geraine and bushes and the clintons henry kissinger and others all go down with that bloody and screaming insane crying fallen star satan good for nothing

    That’s my take on it.

    Like all tyrannical governments, the Australian government is using national security as an excuse to further erode our fundamental right to privacy. The government insists that it’s doing this to protect us from terrorists. But what is it doing to protect us from the greater threat of the government itself?
