Queensland authorities threaten to seize people’s homes, savings over unpaid Covid-related fines



(Planet Today) In Australia, fines are becoming quite common for violating the country’s tight COVID-19 restrictions, and now the state of Queensland has threatened to take severe action against people who don’t pay their fines – even going so far as to threaten to take their driver’s licenses, bank accounts or even their homes.

So far, the capital of Queensland, Brisbane, has issued more than 3000 fines to people and businesses who have been accused of violating pandemic-related laws to the tune of $5.2 million.

These types of fines are not difficult to attract, as nearly anything related to conducting their daily business can get Australians ticket these days. Going too far from their home or venturing outside of their permitted bubble and getting caught spending more than the allotted one-hour outdoors is enough to get a ticket, as is getting caught without wearing a mask, even if you are alone. Tickets are also being given to people who enter closed quarantine zones such as parks and venues. Police are handing out tickets everywhere, including on the street and in random checkpoints on the state’s roadways.

On top of that, people who have left Queensland and then returned are routinely being placed in involuntary quarantine, mostly in hotel rooms, in yet another expense that Australians have to shoulder.

Police use contact tracing scans to find violators

Police have also been taking advantage of the government’s required location scanning to identify violators and rack up more funds for themselves via fines. Citizens must scan their physical location through a QR code on their phone at checkpoints designed to help control the spread of the virus and facilitate contact tracing.

Because these checkpoints register a person’s physical location, it makes it easier for police and dedicated COVID-19 compliance officers to identify people who may be violating their draconian rules. For example, when a person checks in at a grocery store, the police can see how far away from home they are and determine if they may have been violating their permitted one hour of time outside of their home.

With many Australians finding themselves unemployed in the wake of the pandemic, a huge percentage of these tickets are going unpaid. In fact, just 56.4 percent of the fines have been paid so far or are in the process of being paid, while 25.2 percent are considered under investigation or open to being paid without the need for further action on the part of the government.

However, the remaining fines are subject to drastic measures. The State Penalties Enforcement Register is carrying out what it terms “active enforcement” on 18.4 percent of the fines, which equates to around $1 million in total. A spokesperson for the SPER has said that this could entail garnishing wages or bank accounts, suspending people’s driver’s licenses, or registering charges over their property.

In addition, there are more than 2,000 hotel invoices for quarantines that are now considered significantly overdue, totaling $5.7 million. Queensland has enlisted private debt collectors to encourage people to pay up; a Queensland health spokeswoman declined to say how much Commission the collectors would be earning with the arrangement.

Deputy Police Commissioner Steve Gollschewski said that police would be increasing their presence to crack down on violators, including checkpoints on roads where they will be checking to see whether people “have the right reasons to be out.”

He added: “It is a $1378 fine for contravening a direction from an emergency officer, which includes our police, and a $260 fine for a mask.

“If you continue to not comply, you face arrests and being put before the court.”

Experts Declare Experimental Cancer Vaccine Based On mRNA Technology Is ‘Safe and Effective’




A new cancer vaccine based on Covid mRNA vaccine technology
which has yet to be clinically tested has already been declared “safe
and effective” by the British government.

Known as ‘LungVax’,
the new vaccine is being developed by the University of Oxford, the
Francis Crick Institute and University College London, and is expected
to be the first of a huge range of new cancer vaccinations available in
the near future.

Research scientists developing the ‘groundbreaking’ lung cancer
vaccine claim it will be effective in preventing up to 90 per cent of
cases by training the immune system to locate and attack early signs of

Lung cancer cells look different from normal cells due to having ‘red
flag’ proteins called neoantigens. The LungVax vaccine will carry a strand of DNA which trains the immune system to recognize these neoantigens on abnormal lung cells.

It will then instruct the immune system to destroy these cells and stop lung cancer.

Professor Tim Elliot, lead researcher at the University of Oxford, said: ‘Cancer
is a disease of our own bodies and it’s hard for the immune system to
distinguish between what’s normal and what’s cancer. 

‘Getting the immune system to recognize and attack cancer is one of the biggest challenges in cancer research today.”

Elliot admitted the new vaccine is based on technology used to create the Covid vaccine.

‘This research could deliver an off-the-shelf vaccine based on
Oxford’s vaccine technology, which proved itself in the Covid pandemic.

Remarkably, given the disastrous health consequences for those
vaccinated with the experimental Covid vaccines, Eilliot praised the
mRNA roll out as a success.

‘If we can replicate the kind of success seen in trials during
the pandemic, we could save the lives of tens of thousands of people
every year in the UK alone.’

Researchers have been granted up to £1.7 million from Cancer Research UK and the CRIS Cancer Foundation.

The team will receive funding for the study over the next 2 years to
support lab research and initial manufacturing of 3,000 doses of the
vaccine at the Oxford Clinical BioManufacturing Facility.

If successful, the vaccine will move straight into a clinical trials,
involving those at biggest risk of disease, such as current and former
smokers who currently qualify for targeted lung health checks in some
parts of the UK.

TV Host Demands Gov’t ‘Take Control’ of Elon Musk’s X To ‘Shut Down’ Conspiracy Theories




Elon Musk’s X must be “shut down” by government because dangerous “conspiracy theories” are spreading on the social media platform, according to British TV host Jeremy Vine.

“If there any argument to say, and this will sound crazy, but
China does it, we’ve got to now take control of Twitter and shut it down
for the time being,”
said Vine.

Vine made the comments earlier this week during a heated debate
regarding speculation surrounding the health and whereabouts of Kate
Middleton, the Princess of Wales.

‘We’ve now got to take control of Twitter’…..???????????? ⁦

Boomers have become obsessed with speculating that Middleton has died or is severely unwell and that the Royal Family is hiding it because she hasn’t been seen in months after an operation.

The manipulation of a series of photo of Middleton and her children also only served to fuel the rumors, as some sources close to the princess claimed she had been murdered by the royal family.

However, instead of dismissing the whole issue for what it is, a pointless distraction that will disappear once Middleton makes a public appearance around Easter, Vine called for draconian measures.

Modernity report:

Ah yes, the Communist dictatorship of China, which shuts down the Internet to clamp down on dissent and enhance its repression of undesirables.

That’s definitely who we should be mimicking, Jeremy.

Throughout the COVID pandemic, Vine’s show was a platform for some of the most vulgar, authoritarian drivel imaginable.

One show asked if children who are unvaccinated should be banned from schools or made to wear special badges.

Another asked, “Is it time to ban the unvaccinated from traveling?”

Vine has made a name for himself as being a dutiful amplifier of regime messaging, while his annoying side hobby of biking around London looking to film confrontations with motorists has also angered many.
