FOI delays double in 10 years

FOI delays outside the statutory 30-day period have doubled in the past 10 years, according to new research by the Centre for Public Integrity.

As well as systemic delays, the research finds that FOI refusals have increased 50%, while requests granted in full have fallen 30%.

The research finds:

  • FOI requests responded to outside the statutory 30-day period have increased from 11.5 per cent in 2011-12 to 22.5 per cent in 2021-22.
  • FOI requests over 90 days late have increased over 10-fold, from 1.3 per cent in 2011 to 12.4 per cent in 2021.
  • The percentage of FOI requests refused completely has increased 52 per cent from 11.5 per cent in 2011-12 to 17.7 per cent in 2020-21.
  • The percentage of FOI requests granted in full has fallen 30 per cent from 59.1 per cent in 2011-12 to 41.1 per cent in 2020-21.

Bret Walker SC, one of the country’s leading barristers, said “Without knowing about what government is doing, the idea of democracy is defeated.”

“The desire for secrecy has gone way beyond acceptable limits on the part of governments in this country. The supposed benefits of freedom of information legislation have nearly been destroyed by recalcitrant administrators and counterproductive exemptions,” said Mr Walker.

“The public has a right to know information pertaining to public administration,” said Geoffrey Watson SC, a director of the Centre for Public Integrity.

“FOI is an important aspect of our democracy. Without transparency of information, a culture of secrecy and corruption can flourish,” said Mr Watson

“The system is broken. Delays and refusals to give information are on the rise, leaving the public in the dark about important government business. We need to increase staffing and resourcing of the Information Commissioner, and implement sanctions against officers in contempt of the FOI Act,” said Mr Watson.

The harms from wearing masks are real

Face Masked

  • Researchers found a robust relationship between mask wearing, low levels of blood oxygen, and increased levels of carbon dioxide (CO2), heart rate, humidity and systolic blood pressure
  • Clinical symptoms included headache, fatigue, shortness of breath and dizziness. High levels of CO2 reduce blood pH and may be associated with protein misfolding and altered interactions with nucleic acids, which is hypothesized to lead to diabetes, osteoporosis, cancer and neurological disorders
  • In 2020, national experts on respiratory protection and infectious diseases said that while there was limited evidence of effectiveness, they still supported wearing masks in public. However, people should “not count on or expect” face coverings to protect them
  • There is a cost for ignorance, which may be paid for decades. Although population-wide mask mandates never made sense, the massive censorship and shutdown of healthy scientific debate was perhaps the most disturbing aspect of this masking debacle

Class action lawsuit over Covid vaccine injuries targets the Australian government: ‘There has been a cover-up’

At The Court

A landmark Covid-19 vaccine injury class action lawsuit has been filed against the Australian government and the medicines regulator.

The nation-wide suit, which reportedly has 500 members including three named applicants, seeks redress for those allegedly left injured or bereaved by the Covid-19 vaccines.

One of the applicants who suffered a severe heart condition after getting the Pfizer jab is even claiming there was ‘cover-up’ during the vaccine rollout which hid the potential risks.

The federal government, the Therapeutic Goods Administration (TGA) and the Department of Health – in addition to a number of senior public servants – are all named as parties to the class action, which was filed in the New South Wales Federal Court on Wednesday.

The named parties are accused of negligence in their approval and monitoring of Covid-19 vaccines, breach of statutory duty and misfeasance in public office.

The lawsuit was organised by Queensland GP Dr Melissa McCann who raised over $105,000 through crowd funding.


Apeel Sticker

A brand new, edible coming from a person known for dodgy software, coercive and manipulative business practices, who made millions investing in vaccines prior to all the earmarks of a staged pandemic then selling said shares when the reports of vaccine injuries started? Just no!

Police charge big pharma boss with falsifying his Covid vaccination status

Those In The Know

Jose Maria Fernandez Sousa-Faro, president of European pharmaceuticals giant PharmaMar, has been charged by police with being falsely vaccinated against Covid-19. Dr. Sousa-Faro has been caught up in a scandal in Europe involving people being added to the National Immunization Registry in exchange for large sums of money, with many of them familiar faces and household names.

Police allege that Sousa-Faro arranged to be injected with a saline solution instead of a Covid-19 vaccination and paid thousands of dollars to have his name added to Spain’s immunization register, as confirmed by police sources and reported by El Periodico de Espana.

Dr. Sousa-Faro is among more than 2,200 celebrities and European elites on the list drawn up by National Police of those falsely vaccinated against Covid.

According to El Mundo, Spanish police carried out the investigation called Operation Jenner which uncovered the vast network of celebrities and elites who have paid money to have their names fraudulently entered on the National Immunization Register, despite refusing to be vaccinated.

EuroWeekly News reportThe leader of the network was a nursing assistant at the La Paz University Hospital, where he is accused of charging more than €200,000 euros for fraudulently registering 2,200 people as vaccinated in the National Registry against Covid-19. He has been arrested and is currently in custody.

‘Shocking Numbers’ from Acetaminophen Study Suggest Troubling Connection with Autism

Is Acetaminophen Leading To Autism?

“If you look at the overall numbers in his [Dr. Schultz’s] study, it’s shocking,” expressed William Parker, Ph.D. “If you give your child acetaminophen between the age of 12 and 18 months, you’re 20 times more likely to have … a child with autism than if you don’t give them any acetaminophen from 12 to 18 months.”

acetaminophen: noun an analgesic for mild pain but not for inflammation; also used as an antipyretic; (Datril, Tylenol, Panadol, Phenaphen, Tempra, and Anacin III are trademarks of brands of acetaminophen tablets)
