The Liberal CASH BAN - Last nail in Australia's coffin

It's time to kill the CASH BAN Bill. Many pollies are too thick to realise the full story about caving into banker demands to kill off cash. Aussies want to live in freedom. Rights have been destroyed by pollies for decades - the Cash Ban is the final straw. Attacks on journalists & whistleblowers. Surveillance state & other attacks on privacy. Corrupt donations to parties. Unaffordable housing. Cost of living pressures. These are all signs of Australia going off the rails. Enough..!! Get active and put pollies in their place. They serve us .... not the bankers.

This article explains the danger and government lies .... plus gives you some downloads to help you contact MPs and Senators. Make sure you put a submission into the new Senate inquiry before 15.11.19.

So you think we live in a Democracy? .... Maybe Crimocracy is a better description!

In a country as wealthy as Australia why are we seeing such horrific suicide figures - particularly amongst farmers, veterans and our young? Why are so many struggling with cost of living pressures - particularly housing? We are seeing such hardships because our economic system is structured to CRIMINALLY extract as much wealth as possible from the people and their country. Australians have noticed a gradual loss of core freedoms and rights as well as an attack on the nation's sovereignty. This is a worldwide phenomenon and it stems from a battle between competing criminal cartels using politics and finance as a weapon of abuse, exploitation and control. Try this thought experiment - think of Australia as a town run by an organised crime ring. AND then see what has happened to Australia - all is not as rosy as pollies and bankers told us for the last 30 years - especially before elections.

SUMIR® Begins - Join BRN: Stand - Unite - Make It Right®

Election 2019 is our chance to show we are not falling for the two party run around again. Both major parties serve the elite. Both parties have had decades to make a big difference in bringing about a fair go for most of us. Right now most of us are sick of the games, lies and systemic corruption that infests two party politics here and in other nations.

Politicians who are stuck in the old ways of – vote buying – tax & spend sleight of hand manipulations – phony policies & promises – corrupt deal making with corporate donors – us versus them divisive politics – are just tinkering around the edges. Real reform requires bold, innovative and new thinking. That is what BRN's SUMIR program offers.

Did he ask for more power and time? He should have.

Commissioner Hayne took on a role that deliberately limited his chances of successfully exposing the serious misconduct and crimes bankers are engaging in and profiting from. While there are some good suggestions for reforms in his report - he is really tinkering around the edges. While many in the media are keen to analyse what he has come up with - the real story is what he didn't look at.

Here we present some opinions re: his work but we also are keen to consider the areas that were not properly investigated ... or ignored. There is more work to do if Australians want a finance system that exists to serve their interests. That is a very different beast to the one that Hayne has been investigating.

Finance leaders exposed - no ethics, no heart, no competence

BRN and the merry bank warriors came to Sydney for Round 7 of the Hayne Banking Royal Commission. CBA, Westpac and ASIC were in the dock. QC Rowena Orr stripped the Emperors of finance bare. It was painful. How do these characters even think they deserve to be paid multi million dollar salaries?

Scandals, incompetence, chicanery, greed, deception all laid out forensically by the brilliant Counsel Assisting Rowena Orr. There is a cancer in our finance sector and it is killing our country. We need people like Ms Orr to cut it out. We cannot be free until the disease is cured. The Royal Commission needs to be longer and stronger. There are other players in the sector - including ex-CEOs - that require Ms Orr's healing touch and attention.

ScoMo Failed His Leadership Test - He won't make the next election

At certain times a nation's leader may have to handle a crisis. It is only then that you discover if a leader is made of the right stuff. Morrison is not a leader. Australia's fire crisis has proven that. Here we explain how he stuffed up and why he will step down well before the next election.

Government refuses to accept the will of the people re: Cash Ban

The government is playing dirty to try and ram through the Cash Ban Bill. The Senate refused publication of thousands of submissions including the one from Bank Reform Now. We publish it here and encourage you to get active. Albanese and his ALP also want to ban cash. The only way we can stop the Bill is to force Scott Morrison to scrap it. We need to split the Liberal and National parties. Some of their members are opposed to it and the Victorian State branch voted against it recently. Time to take a stand against pollies working in the interests of foreign powers and organisations.

A blast of truth to LNP MPs & Senators. What do you stand for?

For decades it's been very hard to tell the major parties apart. They have both presided over: the trampling of freedoms and rights; Australia being sold off; the gradual destruction of the nation's sovereignty; and of course - the loss of respect for politicians and the institutions that are supposed to work in the people's interests. Here we come to the realisation that the  Liberal Party has no interest in fundamental freedoms. We lay bare their hypocrisy and lies. It's not a pretty sight.

Two things must be done by LNP politicians that are not happy with the party's lurch toward authoritarianism. They must get Morrison to axe the Cash Ban Bill and they must see to it that the Speaker of the House changes the rules to allow peaceful protest inside Parliament House.

We're mad as hell ... and we're not going to take it anymore

This is a classic "truth to power" move from John Telford (VOFF) to Tim Wilson - Chair of the House Economics Committee. There have been too many financial scandals that have hurt hard working people who are saving for their retirement. It is no longer acceptable and if the government doesn't respond to reasoned discussion and peaceful protest then they will be held accountable. White collar criminals must be stripped of their assets and jailed. Victims of the Trio fraud are owed justice as are many others who have suffered from corporate criminals being allowed to get away with crimes by weak and compliant politicians.

The House Economics Committee - and indeed Josh Frydenberg - should now be insisting that banks claw back pay and bonuses ........ and "golden handshakes."

T-Shirt Threatens The System. Parliament Security Cracks Down.

BRN CEO threatened with eviction from Parliament House .... for wearing a T-Shirt. Is this what has become of Australia? Have we forgotten about cherished rights and freedoms? Will the Speaker of the House Tony Smith adjust the rules regarding protest? If people can't protest peacefully what are their alternatives?

While NAB's CEO Phil Chronican was in the dock at the House Economics Committee someone complained about a T-Shirt. This is what happened next ....
