The Daily Dose – Monday 20 September 2021

Vaccine Passports to be implemented in current QR Code Check-In apps, all State & Territory leaderships complicit; Rape-accused Christian Porter defended by PM/media, allowed to resign; Victoria Police violently assault elderly woman, falsely arrest hundreds at weekend protests; and more in today's edition... Federal Office of PM | NSW TO RUN HOME QUARANTINE PILOT PROGRAM 17 Sep 2021 Office of PM | PM does the same interview 6 times for MSM in one day 17 Sep 2021 I can't even be bothered linking to all of these (for reference it was 2GB, Sunrise, ABC AM, TODAY, FIVEaa Adelaide, and 3AW), as usual it's the same interview with different wording. Some notes~ -PM still on first name basis with "Christian" Porter, even when answering questions about Porter's receipt of a massive sum to pay his legal fees from a shadowy donor (likely Fortescue Metals as reported by KCA -the very strange question "will Christian Porter be allowed to keep his job if he gives the money back?" is asked almost verbatim by two different outlets. surely just a distraction point as all MSM & ScoMo's crowd would have already been made aware that Porter was resigning the next day. -no mention of the reason for the legal case (rape allegations against Porter by Katharine Thornton) by any outlet. And some quotes... beginning with a totally-not-scripted 😉 😉 finisher from TODAY, in relation to Joe Biden forgetting ScoMo's name on live TV the other day; LANGDON: And look, Prime Minister, we never forget your show here on the Today Show, OK? Your name. KARL STEFANOVIC: You just did! Sucked in! PRIME MINISTER: See Ally, it happens to us all, doesn't it? It happens to us all, pal. It does. LANGDON: Oh my, Friday, I'm off, I'm out of here. STEFANOVIC: You just got smoked by the PM. LANGDON: Thank you, Prime Minister. PRIME MINISTER: Thanks guys, all the best. 3AW; NEIL MITCHELL: When will these subs be in the water? Looks like 20 years. Both Tony Abbott and Kevin Rudd are saying that's too long. 2GB; Fordham: Just on the COVID vaccine, are you getting sick of all the conspiracy theories out there? ... Prime Minister: Well, I'm concerned about it, I am. That's absolutely true, because it's dangerous. I mean, one of the things we're dealing with, particularly in a lot of disadvantaged communities in Australia, and in particular in Indigenous communities as well as some particular cultural communities, is that these conspiracy theories, this misinformation, and those who are out there peddling this misinformation - whether they're sending it into people's phones by text or they're putting it over the airwaves or they're parroting it from wherever they're doing it - they are putting people's lives at risk, and it's not right. And they should stop doing it. Fordham: I know you've got to run. You're off to Washington. Now, Joe Biden yesterday, I can’t remember what he called you, ‘Old mate from down under’, or something. Prime Minister: He called me pal. Fordham: What did he call you? Prime Minister: He called me, he called me his pal. That's actually how he usually refers to me on the phone, too. Fordham: He knows your name, though, right? Prime Minister: Of course, he does. Office of PM | NATIONAL CABINET STATEMENT 17 Sep 2021 "State and territory leaders received an update on work underway in some jurisdictions to progress home quarantine trials for fully vaccinated Australians. All jurisdictions agreed to integrate an individuals’ record of COVID-19 immunisation history into state and territory check-in apps. The record of COVID-19 immunisation history will be used within these check-in apps as per requirements under state and territory public health orders. ... National Cabinet received an update from Professor Jodie McVernon of the Doherty Institute and Mr Phil Gaetjens, Secretary of the Department of Prime Minister and Cabinet, on the Doherty modelling of additional scenario and workstreams, and the Taskforce report on reopening. Doherty’s sensitivity analysis found that the Delta variant can be managed at vaccination rates of 70% and 80% when combined with appropriate test, trace, isolate and quarantine (TTIQ) practices and public health and social measures (PHSMs) to control transmission and to manage capacity of the health system. ... Doherty is now undertaking further work that focuses on synergies between vaccination, TTIQ and PHSMs at a small area level and for high-risk groups and settings, including Indigenous Australians and schools. Professor McVernon noted the impact of COVID-19 on children is already incorporated in the Doherty’s previous modelling and the setting of targets. The best way to protect children is for the adult population, including their parents, to get vaccinated, as they are more likely to transmit COVID-19, and children experience less severe health outcomes from COVID-19. The Doherty modelling confirms that with high vaccination and appropriate TTIQ and PHSMs to constrain outbreaks, overall cases and deaths are expected to be similar in order of magnitude to annual influenza." Guess what? The A.W. Merrick Institute (which I just invented) confirms that neither TTIQ or PHSMs are appropriate or (to a large extent) even legal, and that the vaccination rollout should be stopped immediately with liability schemes introduced and backdated for government, health departments and vaccine producers 🙂 this Institute has the same powers as Doherty (ie. none)... why not follow our advice instead? Office of PM | PRESS CONFERENCE KIRRIBILLI, NSW 19 Sep 2021 Alternate headline; Scott Morrison defends alleged rapist, confirms Ministers can simply resign after breaking codes of conduct and will even be rewarded with another position – thereafter praised in official statements and media – for doing so. Prime Minister: Ministerial standards set a high mark for both perceived and actual conduct, and particularly in relation to conflicts of interest. All Members, when they become Ministers, understand that, when they sign on and become a Member of the Cabinet and take on the role in the Government's executive ranks. And all of my Ministers seek to uphold those standards at all times. The complex nature, often, of particular arrangements, can sometimes test those standards and their wording and their application in specific circumstances. [ed; what an absolute cop-out] In relation to Minister Porter, over the course of the last few days and in the discussions that we have had, the inability for him to be able to practically provide further information because of the nature of those arrangements, [ed; so according to ScoMo, it's not even Porter's fault that he can't say where the money came from – it's just the 'nature of those arrangements'! and we are supposed to believe that some random donor would send him this kind of money anonymously without his knowledge of who it was – as noted above, KCA already figured it out, too] if he were able to do that, that would allow Minister Porter to conclusively rule out a perceived conflict. And as a result of him acknowledging that, he has this afternoon taken the appropriate course of action to uphold those standards by tendering his resignation as a Minister this afternoon, and I have accepted his resignation. His actions have been about upholding the standards. Our discussions today were about upholding those standards. We each believe they're incredibly important. And it isn't just about actual conflicts. It is about, under the standards, for Ministers to have an obligation to avoid any perception of conflicts of interest. And that is what, ultimately, has led the Minister to make that decision this afternoon. I want to thank Minister Porter for his service in my Government. I want to thank him for his service as the Minister for Industry, Science and Technology, most recently. I want to thank him for his role as Attorney-General for several years, not only under my Government, but under my predecessor. I want to thank him for the role that he performed as Leader of Government Business in the House of Representatives also. Minister Porter will be returning to the backbench, where he will continue to serve as the Member for Pearce. But, I thank him for his service in our Government to the people of Australia. [ed; insert coarse admonishments here] Today I've taken the step of appointing Angus Taylor as the Acting Minister for Industry, Science and Technology. He will perform those responsibilities together with his responsibilities for Minister for Energy and Emissions Reduction. Both of these portfolios sit within his department, and I have no doubt that he will perform extremely admirably in taking on those responsibilities." [ed; Here is a non-exhaustive list of Angus Taylor's corruption to date, again from our friend Shane Dowling at Kangaroo Court of Australia.] "Journalist: Prime Minister, you’re still his [Porter's] boss. Prime Minister: No, no, the people of Pearce are his boss. He is a Member of Parliament. He’s a Member of Parliament and a member of the Liberal Party, and, like I am the Member for Cook. And, ultimately, to sit in the Parliament, then it is up to me to maintain my faith with the people of Cook." That's right, mate!!! You serve us... not the other way around. Office of PM | REMARKS SYDNEY AIRPORT, SYDNEY NSW 20 Sep 2021 "We've worked together over many years to countenance the threat of terrorism here on our own shores. Working with partners all around the world ... is our responsibility to ensure we keep Australians safe ... [ed;] ... because that's what we desire as a peaceful and free nation. The peace and freedom of all of those who live across the Indo-Pacific." ScoMo desires our peace and freedom, eh? I believe he's also said “There’s such a thing as freedom of speech in this country and that will continue”. Let us hold him to these words. • Department of Health | Boosting COVID-19 Vaccination Support for Indigenous Australians by Greg Hunt MP • TGA | Nicotine vaping products 17 September 2021 From 1 October 2021, you need a prescription for nicotine vaping products. Obviously the tobacco industry has taken a big hit and is dishing out massive kickbacks to "health authorities" like TGA in return for their further regulation of vaping products. The taxi industry did the same thing in Australia when Uber was first introduced – remember when Uber was banned in Queensland for a couple of months? There was no reason, and it was obvious to everyone that the taxi industry had bribed the government to make this decision. The Treasury Casino did the same thing by bribing the government to introduce "lockout laws" in which the only liquor-licensed venue with an exemption (and likely one which attracted the most violence) was the Casino itself. These laws are still in place today. • APH | Public hearing on referendums Issue date: Friday, 17 September 2021 Register of Legislation | recent bills introduced (* = since last update) National Redress Scheme for Institutional Child Sexual Abuse Amendment Bill 2021 Biosecurity Amendment (Enhanced Risk Management) Bill 2021 Commonwealth Electoral Amendment (Integrity of Elections) Bill 2021 Aged Care and Other Legislation Amendment (Royal Commission Response No. 2) Bill 2021 Foreign Intelligence Legislation Amendment Bill 2021 National Health Amendment (COVID-19) Bill 2021 International Human Rights and Corruption (Magnitsky Sanctions) Bill 2021 Human Rights (Targeted Sanctions) Bill 2021 States • NT | Greater Geelong, Wangaratta, Murrindindi and Mitchell declared hotspots 17 September 2021,-wangaratta,-murrindindi-and-mitchell-declared-hotspots • TAS | Home quarantine trial for travellers returning from regional NSW 17 Sep 2021 • WA | COVID-19 Updates 18-19 September 2021 • SA | COVID-19 Updates 18-19 September 2021 | Directions issued by Victoria’s Chief Health Officer 17 Sep 2021 | New Freedoms When 70 Per Cent First Dose Target Reached 16 September 2021 Don't get too excited... • QLD | Updated border restrictions for Glen Innes 17 September 2021 | Queensland Health welcomes three Deputy Chief Health Officers 17 September 2021 | Press Conference 19 Sep 2021 News/Media/Misc (Mainstream Media)ABC News | Are we really ready for a showdown with China? / Australia's nuclear submarine deal hints at a showdown to come with China — but is the West ready for it? 17 September 2021 ABC Journalists would do well to watch a few of the "classic" Westerns – it might teach them a thing or two about their fellow man, and the perils of authoritarianism. • ABC News | Police investigate after Age photographer capsicum-sprayed during Melbourne protest 20 September 2021 And not a word on the elderly woman who was knocked over, pepper-sprayed by TWO VicPol officers, and marched over the top of by another 30-odd cops before some go back to "help her", presumably realising they were on camera...

The point of this article is to make us (the reader) feel sorry for Porter, as more than half the article is about how much everyone thought he'd be Prime Minister and how masterful a leader he was up until this point. "Those who have worked closely with Porter speak of his intelligence, his ability to get across complex details and his communication skills. ... It was a sign of his ability to work with those who see him as their political nemesis and it won him praise across the political landscape. ... Some have despaired at his judgement in accepting the money, others argue he's done nothing wrong and had no conflict in accepting the money."
