Euthanasia Propaganda Video Horrifies People Into Supporting Medical Eugenics "IndyWatch Feed National"

A euthanasia propaganda film is making the rounds, spurring viral headlines to emerge such as this one from Unilad titled Euthanasia Video Of Dying Man So Horrific People Cant Watch It.

The Australian film depicts the death of a Victoria man named Greg Sims, as recalled by his daughter. He died of brain cancer.

According to 7 News:

Stop The Horror depicts the agonising death of Victorian father Greg Sims, as recalled by his daughter Nia.

It is the latest project from award-winning Snowtown director Justin Kurzel and was released on Thursday by Go Gentle Australia as part of its campaign to see assisted dying legalised.

The Victorian parliament will hold a conscience vote this year on whether to create assisted dying laws for the terminally ill.

This video is the epitome of fear-mongering. It was directed by Justin Kurzel, an Australian filmmaker known for producing horror movies. How did the Right-to-Die campaign come up with enough money to hire him to direct such a video?

Perhaps some influential people put money into it. The Victorian parliament are holding a vote on whether to create assisted dying laws? Why is that?

As the media operates in America, the Australian mainstream media, outlets such as Channel 7 or the Rupert Murdoch owned Daily Telegraph, propagandize about mandatory vaccination, euthanasia, and a host of other agendas.

An agenda of dehumanization is unfolding to state the simple truth. While people in agony who willfully choose to die instead of continue living in pain should have a right to do so, the people pushing pro-euthanasia propaganda have another agenda.

People must understand that once euthanasia is legalized, historically it leads to abuse and horrible corruption involving the lives of people who cant speak. People end up being euthanized who didnt want to die, and money is made from it.

If one researches the American Euthanasia Society for example, and its role in a network of eugenics societies from the US to Nazi Germany where coercive sterilization was....

To My Friends In Australia: The Vaccine War Deepens "GroovUs Feed Anews"

By Jon Rappoport

The string of abuses laid on citizens of Australia by their government grows almost week by week.

Now, parental rights to raise children, without interference from the State, is under a new form of attack. This must be resisted.

Schools are bringing doctors on board, as a permanent feature. Young children will be subjected to medical diagnoses and treatment, without consent or approval from parents, even if those parents actively object. The State is stealing the role of guardian.

The Herald Sun reports. Read carefully:

DOCTORS will have the power to treat students as young as 12 in schools even if parents refuse their consent.

GPs will consult at 100 Victoria high schools for up to one day a week as part of a $43.8 million program.

Guidelines released on Thursday show that even if a parent expressly states that a doctor should not [examine] their child, the GP can if they deem the teen mature enough.

Any student who wants to see the GP will be permitted to make an appointment, the policy said.

The GP will decide if the young person is mature enough to provide consent to any medical treatment for the prevailing issue.

A young child giving consent? This is supposed to be informed consent when facing off with an adult doctor?

The handwriting is on the wall. Multiple vaccines will be given, to bring children up to State standards. This whole operation is, in fact, a front for forced vaccination. Thats the goal.

But it doesnt stop there. The covert plan will eventually, if not sooner, include psychiatric diagnoses of so-called mental disorders. ADHD, clinical depression, bipolar, and so on. Followed by toxic drugs. Ritalin, Paxil, Zoloft, Prozac, Lithium. Its a parade of toxicity.

I have demonstrated, over and over, that NONE of these so-called mental disorders are based on diagnostic lab tests. Theyre pseudoscience.

I would be quite willing to show this and debate this with any Australian doctor or bureaucrat. Head to head, live on Skype.

Is that a challenge? You bet.

The whole medical takeover of parental roles in Australia is on the move. This is naked State force. Nothing less.

Doctors in schools is a wedge, a first step in the door, a first boot on the face.

The propaganda is: We doctors know best. We have the science. Parents are ignorant. We must protect the children....

Baker Creates Cake Pops That Are Tiny Edible Sculptures on a Stick "GroovUs Feed Anews"

Best Cake Pops by Raymond Tan

One of the best things about baking is that anyone can do it. With some basic techniques and imagination, its possible to produce edible creations that enter the realm of food art. Raymond Tan, aka Ray Ray, is a self-taught baker who uses the activity as his creative outlet. About two years ago, he explains, I set myself a challenge to bring a dessert every time I was invited to a party, hence my first cake left my tiny apartment kitchen and the rest was history.

Since the life-changing soiree, Tan has produced many eye-catching treats. His forte is a twist on cake pops; these desserts are typically shaped as small balls affixed to the top of paper candy sticks, but Tan uses wider wooden popsicle sticks that allow him to make more complex pops. With an increased surface design, he layers colors and textures to sculpt cute animal characters, marble surface patterns, and assemble pretty floral designs resembling bountiful bouquets. Like all incredible food art, Tans cake pops seem almost too good to eatbut with flavors like white lotus and chestnut, who could resist?

Follow along with Tans mouth-watering creations on his Instagram. And if youre local to Paris, hell be teaching a weekend workshop with Amourducake on October 7 and October 8, 2017.

Employment boom

Australia has created an extraordinary ~325,000 jobs over the past year, including a boom over the past six months the like of which arguably hasn't been seen in decades. 


The question is how? And where?

Greater Sydney (+83k), Melbourne (+59k), and now Brisbane (+46k) have each seen a drive in employment growth over the past year. 

Greater Sydney now has a monthly unemployment rate of only 4.46 per cent, and the annual average unemployment rate across the harbour city continues to decline, as it has for 3 years now. 

That's been partly driven by apartment construction and the associated multiplier effect, and a swathe of infrastructure projects. 


Increasingly Hobart is firing up, adding +6k jobs over the year to August 2017, with the median duration of job search continuing to decline.

Greg Clark visits Australia and finds high rates of status persistence "IndyWatch Feed Economics.au"

The co-authors on this paper (pdf) are Andrew Leigh and Mike Pottenger, here is the abstract:

The paper estimates long run social mobility in Australia 18702017 tracking the status of rare surnames. The status information includes occupations from electoral rolls 19031980, and records of degrees awarded by Melbourne and Sydney universities 18522017. Status persistence was strong throughout, with an intergenerational correlation of 0.70.8, and no change over time. Notwithstanding egalitarian norms, high immigration and a well-targeted social safety net, Australian long-run social mobility rates are low. Despite evidence on conventional measures that Australia has higher rates of social mobility than the UK or USA (Mendolia and Siminski, 2016), status persistence for surnames is as high as that in England or the USA. Mobility rates are also just as low if we look just at mobility within descendants of UK immigrants, so ethnic effects explain none of the immobility.

Social mobility is indeed difficult to pull off.  Hat tip goes to Ben Southwood.

Police live-stream a warning to Listen Out punters about a big drug crackdown "GroovUs Feed Anews"

Victorian police have hit up Listen Out punters on social media this morning to send a clear warning about their drug crackdown, ahead of the first leg of the touring festival hitting Melbourne this weekend.

Port Phillip Police commander Inspector Jason Kelly began the Facebook Live video stream by warning attendees who are planning to bring illegal substances to the festival that Victoria Police has resourced extensively to ensure the safety of the public [and] the local community so in other words, if you try to sneak drugs in, you have a very high chance of being caught.

Last year unfortunately we had the death of a young lady so well be increasing our resources around the event, Insp. Kelly told the paper. Well be out in force with (drug dogs), and well have plain clothes police, detectives, uniform members, our mounted branch and other resources deployed.

Anyone caught with a trafficable amount of drugs will be prosecuted and put before the courts, he added. We will arrest those in possession of and using drugs but certainly a key focus will be to identify and detect those trafficking drugs to festival goers at the venue.

Its not empty posturing, either. Although police praised the overall behaviour of the 25,000 attendees at last years sold-out Listen Out Sydney at Centennial Parklands, 116 were arrested for drug possession, and a further 13 with drug supply, after the riot squad, mounted unit and sniffer dogs all headed along to police the site.

Its indicative of a broader police crackdown on music festivals, too, including 24,000-strong Penrith EDM festival Defqon.1 last weekend, which saw a 22-year-old man arrested for the possession of almost 400 MDMA pills, together with 44 other drug-related arrests.

The message from police fight for anyone planning on taking or selling drugs at festivals this summer is simple: dont say we didnt warn you.

Media reforms to benefit major players "GroovUs Feed Anews"

Rupert Murdoch is increasing his political-influence footprint in Australian. Photo supplied.

Veteran journalist Alex Mitchell has condemned the Turnbull governments new media legislation, saying it represented a sweeping victory for the major media owners.

Mitchell will be appearing at the September 27 Politics in the Pub event at the Mullum Court House with Walkley award winner Chris Graham, editor of New Matilda.

They will discuss the establishment and the role of the media.

Mitchell told The Echo, The big players have been given the ability to concentrate their ownership of newspapers, television and radio in the major metropolitan markets.

They have been lobbying for a multimedia monopoly for two decades and the Turnbull coalition has given it to them.

There will be scramble for major media assets in the next six months and I predict we will see single private owners controlling major media in our capital cities including Sydney, Melbourne, Brisbane, Adelaide, Perth, Hobart, Darwin and Canberra.

Fewer voices

When media plurality is diminished, and we have few voices, then it is clear that the rich and powerful steal an advantage, and accountability and transparency suffers.

Mitchell was scathingly critical of the concessions to Senate crossbenchers Nick Xenophon and Pauline Hanson. Spin doctors from the coalition and the major media are working overtime to convince people that the new legislation is fair and reasonable when in fact it strengthens private monopoly control.

The $60 million fund to support small publishers is loose change when compared to the billions of dollars that the private investors and hedge funds will make from concentrating media assets and future profits.

Good luck to the small publishers who apply for a Xenophon grant, but I bet most of them will be allocated to loyal proprietors in National Party territory.

NSW to consider assisted dying laws "GroovUs Feed Anews"

SYDNEY  [AAP]

Terminally ill NSW residents aged over 25 would be able to end their own lives with medical help under legislation bound for state parliament.

Nationals MP Trevor Khan is one of the key figures behind a cross-party voluntary assisted dying bill to be introduced on Thursday.

Mr Khans motivation is a personal one, having watched his father die after suffering a stroke.

I thought what he went through isnt necessarily what others should have to go through, Mr Khan told AAP on Wednesday.

A raft of safeguards have been added to the bill after a public consultation received 72 substantive submissions.

Some of those safeguards include an external assisted death panel to review all cases put forward, as well as the requirement of a psychiatrist or clinical psychologist to oversee the process to prevent elder abuse.

In the face-to-face forums we have held the primary concern received is that the bill doesnt go far enough, Mr Khan told AAP.

This is nothing like the European model, what we are proposing is much more conservative.

But its better to get 70 per cent of something than a mouthful of ashes.

Various state and national public polls reflect strong community support for an appropriate assisted dying bill but several key politicians will not support the legislation.

NSW Premier Gladys Berejiklian continues to oppose the bill, describing voluntary euthanasia as a difficult issue.

I personally havent been able to bring myself around to supporting the bill, Ms Berejiklian told reporters on Wednesday.

Victorian MPs are also debating voluntary assisted dying legislation, which would apply to adults with a terminal illness and life expectancy of less than 12 months.

Victorian Premier Daniel Andrews said the legislation, introduced to the states parliament on Wednesday, contained strict and guidelines and strong p...

PTUA supports call for better services for Ballarat "GroovUs Feed Anews"

Ballarat single track

The Public Transport Users Association today welcomed Committee for Ballarats new #59minuteballarat campaign, which calls for full duplication of the line to Ballarat, electrification of the line to Melton, and faster, more frequent and more reliable services.

PTUA Ballarat Branch Convener Ben Lever said the region needs a long-term bipartisan plan to deliver the infrastructure and services it needs.

The Ballarat line has always been held back by the long single-track sections. Trains need to wait in crossing loops for trains coming the other way, which adds to journey time and limits how frequently trains can run. It also means that when one train is late getting to the crossing loop, other trains need to wait for it meaning delays spread from one train to another.

Weve seen some fantastic investment recently, with part of the line to be duplicated over the next two years but theres still a long way to go. With Ballarats population expected to grow to 160,000 by 2040, and the western suburbs of Melbourne already growing rapidly, we need the full duplication of the line to Ballarat, and electrification of the line to Melton, as soon as humanly possible.

The good news is, we know this is a sound investment for governments to make from the Regional Fast Rail project to Regional Rail Link, when governments have invested in a better service, people have flocked to it. If governments continue to invest in better public transport, the public will use it

The Committee for Ballarat proposal calls for an express train between Ballarat and Melbourne in under an hour, as well as more frequent and more reliable trains.

The full duplication of the line is going to allow for some dramatic improvements to service on the Ballarat line not just a faster journey once youre on the train, but more trains, more often. Not only would running trains more frequently reduce overcrowding and give people more choice in when to travel, it would cut door-to-door journey time less time waiting on the platform means more time at home with your family.

The State government maintains that Melton cant be added to the electrified Metro network until the Metro Tunnel opens in 2026 even if this is the case, detailed planning needs to start now, so that the two projects can be built alongside each other and open...

Melbourne: Rival groups face off as police test new anti-mask laws "GroovUs Feed Anews"

Hundreds of opposing protesters have been kept apart in central Melbourne as police test new powers to prevent violence by masked offenders. Right-wing Jewish activist Avi Yemini attracted about 50 people for a Make Victoria Safe rally outside Victoria's Parliament, while at least three times that number gathered opposite a police barrier. Police arrested at least one person from each opposing group, and one protester taking part in the "anti-racism" march was taken away for wearing a mask. The two groups used loud speakers and chanting in a futile effort to drown each other out. Mr Yemini said his protest was rallying against violent crime.
