Martin Armstrong Warns, Australia Is "Crossing The Line Into A Totalitarian State"

Tyler Durden's picture

Authored by Martin Armstrong via ArmstrongEconomics.com,

Behind the Curtain, there seems to be no government going completely nuts more so than Australia.

They are doubling taxes on all foreigners who own property, which is a violation of international law, and then they made it a crime for a foreign to even buy a house undisclosed.

On top of all of this insanity, then they are planning to strip consumers of their legal protections if they pay in cash and fail to get a receipt.

If an Australian pays for anything in cash, they suspect he is hiding money.

The Australian government is looking to impose penalties if a consumer pays cash and FAILS to get a receipt so they can end the underground economy.

 

They are expecting to change the culture by forcing consumers to ask for a fiscal receipts when paying cash for anything.

 

Now the Australian government has moved beyond eliminating cash, they seek to punish people who pay in cash.

This outrageous proposal is clearly exposing the Australian government as a leftist goose-stepping authoritarian regime going completely insane hunting Australians for taxes. They are even stalking children on their way to school and then check the school as to how they are being paid. This is real Hitler stuff.

That is why the Swiss created numbered accounts because Hitler made it illegal for a German to have any account outside of Germany.

This anti-free society the Australian government is establishing is just off the charts. They have set up a Black Economy Taskforce to hunt down their own citizens.

The Black Economy Taskforce has turned its attention from the businesses to  consumers they now say are “part of the problem” adding that “[w]e intend to examine the merits of consumer focused sanctions, including the loss of consumer protections, warranties and legal rights for people who make cash payments without obtaining a valid receipt.”

 

They are out to change the entire culture of Australia because the government refuses to see itself as the spendthrift causing the entire problem. They wrote: “This is not simply of matter of imposing new penalties, but part of a wider cultural change agenda.”

This is becoming very dangerous.

Can you imagine a government staking your children? This gestapo agency is indeed spying on its own citizens in every aspect just as did the NAZI government in Germany. They have put forth 35 recommendations contained in the interim report where they are arguing the need for “consumer-focused action” to crack down on cash payments.

Obviously, Australia turned their own people into a hunt for taxes. Can you imagine stalking your children is legal? What is human rights? Australia is hunting its own people as if this were a fox hunt. Those who are looking to adopt children should consider adopting from Australia to save them from a government that is going down the path of a totalitarian regime.

This is always a dangerous historical path to proceed down. It has never ended nicely.

Thats too bad. What about the USSA? Think we reached that point after Bush 2.

All you need to know is when you drive on their highways it is all crystal clear what they think of the populace.

SO MANY SIGNS YOUR HEAD SPINS.

Do this, do that, variable speeds, flashing signs, cameras, fines.

You are regulated and told what to do within an inch of your life.  No deviating!!

No Rte. 66 there....

 

One visit told me this was no bug out place....

Yes very unlike the land of the "free"  the most over policed and imprisoned population on the planet.   Oh yes and plenty of signs as well.

Brilliant comment. I do not miss arsetralia nor its "feedoms".

One visit told me this was no bug out place.... absolutely correct.  Driest oldest continent with worn out leached soils. Not easy living like the USA.  Anyway we dont have room for any more, full up and over flowing. Good at bureaucracy/road signs as we started as a govt prison camp and were for 50% of our time since english invaded selling women convicts onlanding for rum.

I said to a friend of mine in Australia. How do you handle all the new rules and laws and regulations that are made every year.

He said "I hate it" but the rest of my family zombies say it's good because the bad people are doing bad things and the rules will stop them.  He feels his family are so totaly brainwashed He doesnt bother debating the idea of freedom with any of them.

PS: In Asia you cannot buy land so if Au.gov is banning foreigners buying land then that's fair.

This started with gun confiscation. For their own safety, of course.

OhNo's picture

I dont see you useing your guns to take back your country numb nuts, And besides you can get a gun licence in OZ which can give you an advantage as not everyone has a weapon.

yarpos's picture

Just part of their little mantra,  they get half a fact and then spin inti something that justifies their own position (or lack of one).   The truth disppears after the first retelling.     If you believed these dills you would think Australia was gun free / forbidden which is laughable.

Keyser's picture

While there is no outright ban on firearms in Australia, the gubbermint has made it next to impossible to own any type of weapon that can be used for self-defense... So take your pious attitude and shove it, moron... Read it and weep...

Rigger's picture

Because my glock is limited to 10 rounds instead of 15 it's no longer any good for self defence? There are more registered firearms in Australia than ever before. This doesn't even account for the ones that went into the ground before the first buyback... quite a number of those. And anyway, America is much more a fascist police state than Australia is anyway. No Aussie would put up with some high school dropout feeling up his daughter at the airport, so why do you and all your ar-15's allow it?

 

 

UselessEater's picture

only cause the high school drop out is his daughter...

That is so awesome for you.  Now .gov knows where to look if they want to take back the few guns they have allowed you people to think you own.  You'll be in even better shape if the Chinese hordes ever come pouring in.  While they will have trained for fighting people with guns you can boomerang them silly.

White Australians like you will be the new aborigines when this is all over.

Notwithstanding MA, perhaps, being correct about Australia

 

Martin Armstong crossed the line towards being a TOTALITARIAN STATE shill for a few years running now.

 

I guess everyone has their 'GET OUT OF JAIL FREE' card price...

 

Maybe 'Pastor Jim' (from Minnesota) can find a silver lining to this (like he somehow managed to do with Pepe Escobar a few days ago).

Well in the US they are now going after our constitutional rights.

The government treats Australians this way because they know that most of them have a criminal background.

yarpos's picture

Pretty easy to assemble comparable crime stats for the US,  Australia and other first world countries.   The ranking would clearly be a suprise to you.

Mr 9x19's picture

in europ they just prepare the gun ban because of the sandniggers populations.

 back  in the 70' there were shotguns in supermarkets , along 22lr, no problem.

now you have to be part of federal sport association, plus administrative papers in tons, it is a clusterfuck, those hoplophobics never handled a carbine in their hands and put laws over others like they just want to shit on you, they do so, whatever you think about.

the main difference between whites criticized to possess guns ( like me ) but do not act against the tyranic govs is because we still think things can change, and we can still live together in peace.  you put weapons in niggers hands, the 1st thing  done is a robbery within 30 minutes.

also, whites do not attack gov's because of the response, military scaled, it would be a mess. the system is so dense you have no utlity to fragilize it.

you want  populations to stay together,  common denominator : guns, you remove em,  common socle, every one on the same level...theorically....

things are what they are, but it is too late to make em change deep enough to make it great & equal, because the price to pay is way above 90% can accept it.

1. the flood of new immigrants have changed aus .. lost its identity. 

2. chinese warned me that police were car wheel blocking the area I used to live in. It was over run by chinese moneylaunderers. Fact was the chinese didnt ever pay their traffic fines.  

I saw chinese black economy, corruption, insurance jobs, failure to pay private school fees (playing on kindness and decency), plagiarism, cheating, lying, using, entitlement in 1st generation cheater, all in just  one reasonably  nice chinese neighbour.

I guess Martin Armstrong likes to do business under the table.

Of all the things wrong in the world, he is outraged by a crack down on black ecnomy.

Interesting.

That is indeed brutal and a sign of lefties going insane...and yet, I'd rather live there than in the banana republic of america.

c2nnib2l's picture

what the fuck is going on with this world ?

everything is shifting into left utopia state direction 

is there a place to hide ?

I think it's about time to respond with force to this shit... Global scale martial law and start puting left wingers into jail or some kind of locked reserves

and by the way... doesn't matter how bad Trump is I think he is trying his best to really do something 

 

imagine having HRC right now on the throne

so we have gone from a small country doing something t avoid tax evasion,  to global martial law.   Hysterical much?

The old ones are returning. Men will try to hide themselves in the rocks and it won't save them. Men's hearts will fail them for what is coming on the earth. Nations will be distressed with perplexity.

As we speak, nations are burrowing with every boring machine they can keep functional. Underground bases and highways are being fitted out to try and escape what will be bombarding us from space; rocks, iron dust, and charged particles. It won't save them from what has been appointed.

Hey Marty, why don't you tell us something we don't already know. The US went there long aw. But, hey Marty, you've known that for some time now. The others are just following in the footprints of the US. You're a shill Marty. Go pitch your Bullshit elsewhere, you fucking Clown.

Really, what else but Totalitarianism would you expect from a nation founded by transported convicts?

Akhenaten II's picture

Moron.  Our convicts included Irish Republicans seeking to imitate the US revolution, people who stole bread to eat because of Britian's insane Corn Laws made bread unaffordable (a covert way of starving the poor out of existence) and other crimes against the state. Moron.

francis scott falseflag's picture

Golly, I had no idea.  

"seeking to imitate the US revolution"

Then it must be that just the transported convicts went into politics.

 

Yeah, that's what I meant.

fukwit. Turnbull is an ex-goldman. Aus is a us vassal of course. Look up wikipaedia for 'US Coups" and pull your fkn head in.

Bread is bad for you. They should have eaten meat.

yarpos's picture

yep , nobody else there at all,  just pushed them over the side and sailed off.  Then of course nobody else came at all did they?    I wish I had your historical knowledge.

just a small example,   my family arrived in the 1880s ,  a boat load of Danes and Germans looking for a better life sailing up the Mary River north of Brisbane.   Still lots of Germanic names in the area.   But lets not let facts get in the way of a good story.

Well, at least your family had the good sense not to come to America.

 

Still they prolly talk funny

Governments hold these sorts of inquires all the time, they rarely enact any of the proposals.

There is also an inquiry into slavery, something that might interest Americans?

The Article seems a bit too alarmist.  Looks like they're trying to avoid what happened in London and Vancouver, by curtailingfrivolous foreign Investors(possibly dirty foreign funds - especially Cash) from pumping up RE Px

Also serves to encourage Immigration.

Winston Churchill's picture

The Channel Islands(Guernsey and Jersey) have charged foreigners far higher prices to purchase

RE for decades.As Tax havens the locals were being priced out.I'm out of date but it was

triple in a duty, payable to their govt.,over the locals price.

Armstrongs idea of illegal seems to be warped, could explain his time served.

Aus has the LEAST AFFORDABLE HOMES IN the WORLD   exceeds London Canada, ... geez New York is cheap.

I know , its a terrible thing for the people of a country to want a stop the Billions of dollars of criminal proceeds flooding into their country  from China etc that is pushing up the price of real estate etc and ensuring that the people of a country and their children will forever be unable to purchase a home of their own, be consigned to being permanent renters their entire life and retire with nothing....such a terrible situation....HOW could they do it!!!

The cash receipt thing is also a load of Bollocks, just because some economist or Politicians expresses some retarded opinion does not mean Australia has turned into some sort of Fascist regime.

FU**ing stupid article.

I was surprised at how many chinese were in sydney.  A LOT.

Just curious, did the foreign money do this to the New Zealand real estate market starting many years ago?

The average price of a single family home (any single family home) in Auckland passed 1 million NZD some time ago.  

Relative to local wages, the affordability gap in Auckland is the 2nd highest on the planet... after Hong Kong.
