The incident in this first link took place across the ditch (Australia) in the state of Victoria.. For those who want to know what is in the link it is a live recording of the search warrant being served and arrest of a pregnant woman in her own home for expressing an opinion on facebook.........


Here is a follow up interview given by the woman when she was released...........


After watching the second video I clicked on this link which is an opinion piece and at the 5.57 min mark it talks about the second civil war which is happening in the USA.

    About a week ago I read a piece that showed Australian "Authorities" using surveillance drones to spy on citizens to enforce mask compliance. Dissenters who refuse to comply are promptly arrested including warrantless searches in private homes. We're seeing Orwell's 1984 or Bradbury's Fahrenheit 451 literally play out before our eyes. Is it any coincidence that Australia confiscated and destroyed all semi-automatics some time back? Here in America we are on the same path with these disgusting progressive leftists who are destroying our country. TennMike nailed when he called them "Feral Humans." Sadly, many so-called "conservatives" here in America dismiss it as a "teething" process and/or are completely blind to it.

    Hate to say it Alec, but thats where you guys are likely headed too. I know you guys don't have a 2nd amendment but what they did to you guys was worthy of an armed uprising. Now they'll always have a jump on ya.

    When someone is arrested for expressing their opinion either by speech or written word then the seeds of revolution are sown on fertile ground. I don't care how benign or hateful the speech may seem, it is the right of people to express themselves. It is up to the listener/reader to take what is there and agree or disagree with it. It is NOT by  any means within the power of any  authority to stifle the free expression of one's thoughts and speech, ever.
    People that are elected to hold political office are THE REPRESENTATIVES OF THE PEOPLE, NOT RULERS OVER THEM. When they forget that salient FACT then they become nothing more than despots fit only for the gallows or other means of destruction of their  worthless carcasses. History is going to repeat itself again because of the irredeemably stupid and lazy will cause the pot to boil over, AGAIN.
    I hope our friends in Australia remember this incident when elections come round again, and that things remain calm between now and then. And when the elections do come, I hope that they elect a bunch of freedom loving TRUE Australians to replace the despots en masse.

     Sadly, many so-called "conservatives" here in America dismiss it as a "teething" process and/or are completely blind to it.
    Well, there's a bit of a conundrum among the conservatively-minded.  When you're generally of a law-and-order mentality, you're not inclined to take independent action against the more radical opposition - that sort of thing is supposedly the job of law and order.

    In the book Unintended Consequences, John Ross's main character discusses the problem in these general terms:  when people have just started talking about taking your freedoms away - which, after all, they should be free to do - almost nobody is going to take your side if you start violently opposing them.  On the other hand, when you reach the point that those same people have you handcuffed, starving to death, and being led into a gas chamber, you have given up too much freedom and it's far too late to do anything about it.  What is the point of action?

    There really is no good or easy answer there, and all the more disquieting that the freedom-stealing side understands it.  The talking head in the Aussie newscast probably hits closest to the mark in that this is becoming a VERY important American election that we NEED to participate in.  We for sure are standing on the edge of a cliff, or more likely, the peak of a mountain - if we fall off on Trump's side, it's STILL probably going to be really ugly short-term; if we fall off on Biden's side, it's going to be really ugly long term.  Both side's pots are on the stove; right now, the left's is boiling and the right's is at a fast simmer. :/

    Orchidman nailed it - a troubled world for sure.  Hopefully in his theater, the Aussie/NZ's are starting to see the tiger they've let loose and can reign him in  - while they're still ABLE to have elections.

    There seems to be an almost world-wide communist/fascist revolution going on. The Catholic Church is even preaching from the pulpit that ridiculous renouncement of the "white privilege" in us. The Pope is a commie, so I guess that is where that comes from. Private industry and federal bureaurocracies has gotten on the bandwagon too with re-education seminars.

    Well, I aint holding my breath waiting for the 'light bulb' moment. In NZ the current Socialist Party Leader is the darling of the masses and it looks like the Socialists will be returned to power with an increased majority. Having said that, it appears some of the thread on the socialist coat tail is starting to unravel due to their ineptitude at securing our borders.

    Here are a couple of links if you feel like reading more...........

    All the above articles come from left leaning media sources...........which up until recently have been overwhelming in their praise for the current Govt.......

    Maybe there is hope............
