Update on four amendments to ‘The Code’ …

Private Media owner Eric Beecher, spells out what this all means!

“The grim reality is that this legislation supports and enshrines the concentration of public interest journalism ownership in the hands of five billion dollar-plus organisations, dwarfing the news publishers who, between them, constitute diversity of Australian media,” Mr Beecher said.

“It arms five enormous organisations with additional funding to dominate and, in some cases, wipe out smaller players.”

The legislation provides a framework for publishers to hash out commercial deals with Facebook and Google for using and linking to their content.

But the government amended the laws this week to placate Facebook after it blocked the sharing and publishing of Australian news on its platform.

The most important of the four amendments means the code may have already teased out all of the concessions it is going to get from Facebook and Google – even though it has yet to become law.

This is because it requires that Treasurer Josh Frydenberg take into account whether a digital platform has “made a significant contribution to the sustainability of the Australian news industry through reaching commercial agreements with news media businesses” before he can specify that the code must apply to it.

In other words: Facebook and Google are only bound by the rules of the code if and when the Treasurer says so.

And given Google has already struck multiple deals with individual news publishers, it’s a big stick that the Treasurer may never choose to use.


Mr Strom, president of the Media, Entertainment and Arts Alliance union that represents Australian journalists, told The New Daily the federal government should have focused instead on squeezing more tax out of the tech behemoths.

It could have then funnelled the extra revenue into expanding its Public Interest News Gathering Fund, while introducing more generous tax incentives for new media startups and for Australians who subscribe to local news, he said.

The Head of Multi-Million Dollar Money Laundering Ring Arrested!

Yi Zhong, seen in a file picture, has been arrested in Sydney.
Cybercrime squad detectives made the arrest on Monday.

WHAT a corrupt little Nation we have become whereby SO much ‘Black Money’ is awash here!

AND that it appears to have been encouraged with laundering facilitated by the growth of Casinos until recently …

and Our HOUSING MARKET is AWASH with it!

WHY was it that the Real Estate Gatekeepers were made exempt from Anti-Money Laundering Laws back in

October 2018 by the Morrison Government?

Whose interests does the Morrison Government represent? … Cough … cough …

‘$1m in cash seized as man arrested over alleged money laundering via cryptocurrency’

Police have arrested in Sydney’s Inner West … the Head of a MultiMillion dollar money laundering ring and seized $1M cash from his vehicle



‘Locked Out’ … Again!

CAAN suggests it is not only the impact of Mum and Dad Investors returning to the market … low interest rates … the limited supply of houses BUT the return of the Onshore Proxy … at Open Home Inspections messaging on Smart Phones … who do you figure they are buying for?

THEN Invite others to Search CAAN WEBSITE for how this dire predicament has in fact been contrived to benefit the few here, like those on the AFR Rich List, and largely their overseas wealthy clients who can gain a Permanent Resident Visa following property purchase!

HINT they can buy a ‘new home’ as an entry e.g. a studio apartment in woop woop, and gain this PR Visa … to then fly here and buy up more real estate including Heritage Homes, suburban bungalows, a whole level of an apartment development …

IT would seem they knew about this long before many of us …

It now emerges NBN could have cost $10Bn less!

‘Commercial-in-confidence’ … when did this first appear?  Isn’t that contrary to running an open and transparent government?

HOW convenient to pull this one out?

The GALL of the LNP …

-a 2013 strategic review into the NBN censored the savings estimates; have remained commercial-in-confidence

.the NBN Co and the federal government have kept secret for almost eight years

.Australia has been left with a second-rate network

The unredacted documents indicate ‘a full fibre network’ could have been $10Bn cheaper than that claimed by the LNP Coalition

IT APPEARS that no matter how good projects/infrastructure/services are … the LNP both Federally and in NSW in particular have an Agenda to pull everything apart, and/or to sell off  …

IT would be interesting to learn of the extent of politicians share portfolios … and benefits …


‘Secret figures show full Fibre NBN may have cost $10 Billion less than claimed’


The Blokey Kulcha and their Hero Tones …

The event was the first major fundraiser ahead of a Liberal Party bid to win back Warringah.

The blokey Kulcha in Australia

IF ever there were ‘a Pointer’ about the LNP Coalition … here it is

The Libs held one of their first fundraisers at the Mosman Club on Friday night, 19th February … to win back the seat of Warringah, and who was there, do you think?

Yes, ‘the Mad Monk’ … from whence, it appears, much of the damage to this Nation originated …

Was TA the instigator of ‘the Kulcha’, the LIEBRAL BOOFEY BLOKE KULCHA?

TA was known for his three word slogans!

‘AXE THE TAX’ … The Carbon Tax, and hence where we are now in a perilous position with Climate Change

‘STOP THE BOATS‘ … to stop most of those fleeing from war torn nations, and persecution to seek asylum in Australia. For the small number that gained approval as refugees they were limited to temporary visas.

In contrast the Chinese were invited to invest in Australian Tertiary Education, and buy up our Real Estate locking out Australians with Black Cash!  And to gain ‘Permanent Residency’! This began during the Howard Government with “Flexible Citizenship’ for Middle Class Chinese.

Daily Abbott taunted Prime Minister Gillard with his ‘Captain’s calls’ … thankfully ministerial scandals damaged its leadership …

AND typical of this ‘blokey kulcha’ there was a long line of them queuing up on Friday night for an $80 two-course dinner at the Mosman Club to rub shoulders with TA and their like boofey mates …

HOW good’s that?  How clever … hm?



THE BLOKEY KULCHA of sloganeering has grown even more with Scomo  … so much so some of us want to puke …

Like with ‘a fair go for those who have a go’

BUT what does SCOMO really mean?

Apparently what Scomo means is that ‘the fair go pertains if you do something, and don’t seek to take a contribution.’

Really what about the philosophy of the LNP about making a motza … and TAX avoidance?

So to distract the audience from what is really going on, constant reference is made to ‘conniving welfare cheats and dole bludgers’ …

HOW TOXIC is that Kulcha?



On the Kulcha in Austraya

May be an image of 2 people and text that says '"They're on to us" "The people are waking up Gladys, I don't know how much longer we can masquerade as their saviours" "Scott, the Media Complex will keep the myth alive and people scared long you keep pouring money into the media coffers with useless public service announcements about masks and hand washing etc. That will buy more time."'

SHOULD WE BE ‘Under New Management?  Seriously …


From Janine:

I live in a country where women are paid 20% less than men I live in a country where women represent 30% of Govt I live in a country where 18% of CEO’s are women. I live in a country where the elected Govt. conspires to coverup the rape of women – I LIVE IN AUSTRALIA ….

From Sarah:

On Monday, a student disclosed to me that she hadn’t eaten for 36 hours. She was so ashamed, but so hungry she was in tears. She said Dad left & Mum couldn’t afford food and the bills. I gave her my lunch. This is the life of a teacher. This is Australia. #aussieEd #auspol

From 9 NEWS:

Teachers should be paid more and have more time away from class to prepare lessons. That’s the finding of an independent inquiry, which concluded that teachers are enduring unsustainable workloads.

From Helen:

In a week when the Family Court is abolished, when we remember Hannah and her 3 children who were burned to death, when a serious crime against a young woman happened in our Parliament and it was covered up. Can anyone join the dots other than me

From Dr Sheep Person:

Every journalist who is now working to “humanise” Morrison is part of the problem. Every single one.

CAAN:  However, the journalists are under the direction of their Masters … the donors and supporters of the LNP Coalition …

From Gary:

I find it more than a little hypocritical the Liberal Party claims to be the party of “law and order” yet happily seems to cover up crimes ….

From Kelly:

CAAN:  And this is before the Cut to JobSeeker!

I’ve got $8 to my name. If you don’t laugh you cry. I’m laughing. I’m ok btw. Not asking just expressing a minor anxiety. I don’t have a mortgage, I don’t have children (1 dog actually and she’s beautiful) so I’ll be ok. But fark lol

From Paul:

CAAN:  And how many of you bought the B.S. from Tone’s mouth?

The more time rolls on, the more I realise I didn’t appreciate at the time how good Gillard was as PM #auspol

From Senator Rex Patrick:

So, Mr Gaetjens,

@ScottMorrisonMP’s former political Chief of Staff, will conduct an investigation into who knew what inside the Prime Minister’s Office, just as he did for #SportsRorts. #PubTestFail #auspol

CAAN:  And search our Website for more about Gaetjens, the Foreign Investment Review Board (the FIRB) and why it is FHBs particularly have been locked out of Home Ownership in Austraya …

What ever happened to the no bonking rule in Canberra?





From those whose Reports are telling us How it is!


On the unemployed and underemployed … from Michael Pascoe …


Hence the constant lobbying of government to get temporary work visas going again and reduce welfare to force unemployed and underemployed people to be compliant, never mind 100 per cent effective tax rates.

Pick up an Australian Financial Review and it’s not hard to find first paragraphs like this one: “Job seekers taking advantage of the welfare system and foreign workers restricted from rolling over their visas have created major difficulties for employers desperate to hire workers.”


More about Brittany’s push for justice; that the perpetrator face the full force of the law  …


Greens senator Larissa Waters is not satisfied by an internal review into the text messages, and will push for a public inquiry into the alleged rape and response when parliament resumes next week.

“We need an independent review, which has public findings,” she said.


‘Yesterday, she (Brittany) announced she had “re-engaged” with the Australian Federal Police (AFP), pressing ahead with a formal complaint and asking them to undertake a “comprehensive” investigation to ensure her alleged perpetrator faced the “the full force of the law.”

The second woman, who has not been identified, has told The Weekend Australian newspaper she is also a former Liberals staffer.

She alleges the man raped her last year, after the pair had dinner and drinks.

She has told the newspaper she has come forward to help Ms Higgins shine a light on the culture in Federal Parliament, and suggested her assault may never have happened if Ms Higgins had been properly supported in 2019.’

‘The Culture’, it would seem, is all about $$, business, and winning … no matter at what cost to others, to the constituency … through rorts, political donations including those from foreigners …

Could ‘the Culture’ be the underlying problem?



Why is Sydney’s Property Market running so hot?

We have heard and read numerous reports about low interest rates, First Home Buyers entering the market taking up government grants

AND the short supply

BUT what we are not hearing about  … is the growing presence again of the ‘Onshore PROXY’ on the mobile updating their Hong Kong buyers … that would seem to be where a lot of competition is coming from and hence the inflated housing prices … beyond the means of our First Home Buyers and other Aussie buyers!!!  FFS!

WHY?  Because they can … the Smirko grubment exempted the real estate gatekeepers from Anti-Money Laundering Laws back in October 2018

IF SM was really concerned about ‘the Australian People’ one would figure he would put a stop to this! Just as readily … or is there more to this story?

Could it be that the Donors demands have to be met … for more housing … even more housing … to bring back Visa Workers … Skilled Workers … to buy ever more housing … as Aussie Buyers are Outbid …

And we become unemployed or underemployed …

SO what are you going to do?  Are you going to vote them back in?  Is that what you want? A guvmnt with no moral compass?  In all that they do??


‘Autumn traditionally out ranks spring as the biggest selling season of the year, with March its busiest month. But overall listings are down 12 per cent on the same time last year, according to CoreLogic who calculate there are 16,000 listings across Sydney.

Some 6000 fresh listings were added over the last month, which is down seasonally by around 2 per cent.’
