SOUND FAMILIAR? The police said in a statement that the warrant was related “to the alleged publishing of information classified as an official secret, which is an extremely serious matter that has the potential to undermine Australia’s national security.” 'The Australian union for journalists called it “an outrageous attack on press freedom.”“Australians are entitled to know what their governments do in their name! That clearly includes plans by government agencies to digitally spy on Australians by hacking into our emails, bank accounts and text messages.” In April 2018, a top-secret proposal to expand the powers of the Australian Signals Directorate, (the equivalent of the National Security Agency in the US) was to be submitted for ministerial approval. The proposal would allow “cyber spooks to target onshore threats without the country’s top law officer knowing.”

A conversation in The SUN with Ralph Nader and David Barsamian which is relevant to this:

"...what fascism is: the merger of big business and government, so that big business not only has power over the private economy but uses the power of government to entrench itself. This usually brings violations of civil liberties, suppression of free speech, manipulation of elections to a point where they shouldn't even be called elections, and the concentration of wealth, income, and power in the hands of the few."

Barsamian: Would you include Trump's relentless attacks on the media and journalists as a warning sign of fascism?

Nader: Yes, of course. Fascism attacks any potential challenge from society. It attacks minorities who don't go along, which is what Hitler did, obviously. The fascist corporate state can brook no budding challenge. It can't allow challengers to get a foot in the door.Barsamian: Individual journalists have been called out by the president, putting them in danger.

Nader: If Trump creates a constitutional crisis, "I predict he will incite the people at his rallies to physically attack and injure reporters, and Trump will be sued for incitement to violence. Though presidents are above the law when it comes to military and foreign policy, they cannot escape criminal law."

The Last American Vagabond has a more appropriate view than the johnny come lately if at all pretentious publication NYT, that lies to its readers, deliberately keeps them in the dark and ready to support their masters next war.

This is according to the Australian BC...ABC's managing director, David Anderson, said in a statement that it was "highly unusual for the national broadcaster to be raided in this way."


Wow. Really? That's all he can say?
