Victorian police can enter homes without a warrant

As part of new stage 4 lockdown restrictions announced this week, Victorian Premier Dan Andrews has cited harsher penalties for those found not to be following COVID-19 directions.

At the direction of health officers, authorities in Victoria can now enter any home without a warrant or permission, and take any action they deem ‘necessary’ to ‘slow the spread’.

POLICE GET BROAD POWERS

Australia’s second-largest city is now subjected to some of the most extraordinary COVID-19 lockdown measures on the planet, in a move that will cripple the struggling Victorian economy.

Now, it has been revealed police officers can take any action they deem necessary to ‘slow the spread’ of coronavirus, including authorities entering homes without a warrant or permission. 

According to reports, the state of disaster declaration empowers the police minister, Lisa Neville, to appoint police as ‘authorised officers’. When doing ‘spot checks’ on people’s homes, if the residents did not give permission for them to enter, police will be authorised to enter without a warrant.

The Public Health and Wellbeing Act 2008 states that authorities can close any premises and without a warrant, enter any premises and search for and seize anything that is necessary for the purpose of investigating, eliminating or reducing the risk to public health.”

Authorities may also “…direct a person or group of persons to enter, not to enter, to remain at, or to leave, any particular premises for the period of time reasonably necessary to investigate, eliminate or reduce the risk…”

On Tuesday, 172 fines were reportedly issued for breaching restrictions in a 24-hour period, totalling $250,000. This prompted ‘frustrated’ police to consider using the broad powers.

The reason the police now have these draconian powers is because the ‘situation’ in Melbourne has been upgraded from a “state of emergency” to a “state of disaster”. 

The last time a state of disaster was declared in Victoria was in January of this year, when a huge swathe of it was literally on fire

How can a 1.2 million-hectare bushfire that destroyed at least 200 homes warrant the same alert level as the deaths of age care home residents, all of whom were over 70 and one over 100?

This is an astonishing violation of civil liberties. Police officers should not be allowed to demand entry to a property without cause or due process. 

They especially shouldn’t be allowed on ’public health grounds’, when the median age of Australians who have died is exactly the same as the nation’s average life expectancy — 82 years old.

The kind of restrictions now imposed on the lives of five million people in Melbourne would have looked harsh in 1950s East Berlin.

TYRANNY RE-EMERGES

Victoria declared a state of disaster at 11:59pm on Sunday in an effort to ‘flatten the curve’ of the COVID-19 pandemic. This is despite already flattening said curve. It’s back again, to get revenge.

Andrews said ‘government modelling’ showed that without these measures, stage three restrictions would need to last six months. Can we see any of this modelling, Dan?

Dictator Dan’s authoritarian greatest hits now include:

  • A six-week curfew from 8pm to 5am across the entire Melbourne metro area, with the only exceptions being work, medical care and caregiving.
  • Outside those curfew hours, the only reasons to leave your home are: shopping for food and essential items, care and caregiving, daily exercise and work. Workers must show papers.
  • Daily exercise can only take place within a 5km radius of your home, cannot last longer than an hour and can’t be with more than one other person.
  • You cannot buy more than two units of certain essential items, including dairy, meat, vegetables, fish and toilet paper.
  • Masks are compulsory when outdoors, across the entire state.

As if the first round of lockdowns wasn’t bad enough, Victoria is once again in the firing line.

But for what? Let’s take a look at flu statistics for 2019. Last year, more than 310,000 Australians were hospitalised with flu and over 900 died. By all metrics, that makes the flu a worse threat than COVID-19, but police weren’t granted Stasi-like powers during the flu season. 

Millions of people weren’t confined to their homes and threatened with fines for not having a good reason for being out in the community. Australia is resembling a third-world dictatorship in 2020.

Let’s take this statement from commandant Andrews, for example. He told Victorians: “There is literally no reason for you to leave your home and if you were to leave your home and not be found there, you will have a very difficult time convincing Victoria police that you have a lawful reason.

How can a politician in a free country even conceive of uttering a statement like that? Give me a break. In a free country, you don’t need a reason to leave your home, you can just go out. That is what freedom means.

Anyone who tries to tell you to sacrifice freedom for ‘security’ is seriously misguided about the consequences of human nature and the context of recorded history. Simple.

As if it were not bad enough that you can’t leave your house without being muzzled without a ‘lawful reason’, now you can’t even remain in your house without being harassed by the cops if they see fit.

They can just pop ‘round anytime to make sure you haven’t had a neighbour over for a couple of drinks. How dare you threaten the country, you filthy health threat!

As anticipated, the ‘ultimate revolution’ is on still track, ladies and gentlemen. Continued international hysteria and a corporate-facist psychological operation being used to usher in a Brave New World Order. The Mind Virus from The Beast.

How did we get to this point? ‘I thought everything was almost over’, they say. A quick look beyond the spin reveals a clear path of deception once again. 

SECOND WAVE HOAX

The data behind the COVID-19 ‘pandemic’ was never reliable, with test kits being inaccurate, government policies inflating the death counts (including in Australia), and the media focusing solely on fear-based predictions that are repeatedly proven false.

Now, the establishment is once again making their move and the COVID-19(84) narrative is kicking back into gear, just as Australia was hoping to return to a sense of ‘normality’ (or so they were told).  

A ‘second wave’ was always anticipated, and Victoria serves as ‘ground zero’ for this new chapter.

Let’s examine: At the end of May, Victoria’s new COVID cases were in the single digits. On 6 June 2020, the state recorded no new cases for the first time since March.

On 20 June 2020, the Victorian government announced $1,500 support payments would be given to those who were impacted by COVID-19 or even knew somebody who was

Targeting vulnerable citizens with payments, who took the bait, subsequently leading to the lockdown of ‘the towers’ in North Melbourne after cases emerged. Testing was soon opened.

The Victoria government ramped up testing and, predictably, it has seen an uptick in cases. Next thing we know, cases began to spike ‘out of control’. Hundreds per day, correlating with new tests.

This week, things have finally reached a tipping point, now ‘spinning out of control’. All justified on cases, rather than death rates. Forget international wars of the past, it seems all it would take to bring this great country to its knees was an increase of runny noses during flu season.

Just as the country reached the ‘final stages’ of lockdown restrictions, new spikes in ‘confirmed cases’ served as the catalyst for a new paradigm of propaganda. 

Authorities have used psychological warfare throughout history to manipulate public opinion, gain political advantage and generate profits. Western governments have engaged in such tactics in the ‘war on terrorism’ as well as in its predecessor, the ‘war on communism’.

In both cases, state-sponsored terrorism and propaganda were used to distort the public’s perception of the threats, leading to increased governmental control of society and huge financial benefits for corporations. It appears that the same kinds of tactics are now being used on everyone.

The scientific religious cult driving the coronavirus scare has a history of unethical behaviour, fabricating statistics and hyping pandemics to push vaccinations. 

They appear to not just be seeking long-term profits through means of deception, but also hope to achieve the implementation of a new world, highly controlled society.

When will Australians say ‘enough is enough’?

  1. I don’t know what to mourn more; the takeover of the Technocratic Cult, or the revelation of who I have been living amongst – sheep dressed-up as humans! Although I hate using such language, the reality that is unfolding with each breath we take is predominantly the fault of the sheeple readily handing over their entire existence without a question. My dog has more personality than the lot. I can’t put a muzzle over my dog’s mouth… She resists, and she wins! Thank you Ethan and Tott News for the amazing collection of thorough information and knowledge you publish and make available. Bless and stay well.

  2. “When will Australians say enough is enough?” I don’t see any evidence that the vast majority ever will.

    It’s a miserable feeling to have a conversation about Covid 19 (84) with someone who is supposed to be a friend, and they say “I’m not going into conspiracy theories, they just suck you in and it’s too draining”. Good-bye to that friendship.

    Yesterday an acquaintance said to me “I can’t believe that there are still stupid people in Victoria not wearing masks! How selfish!” etc, etc. So I said:

    “Do you know how many Australians died last year from influenza?”

    “No”.

    “The official record was 902 people aged between 12 months and over 100. 902!!!”

    “Yes … but that was just the basic ‘flu”.

    It would be funny if it wasn’t so sad.

  3. To me it seems as if Victoria is the testing ground for the Chinese social credit system in all its glory. How easy has it been to fast track with most obeying? We have been easy targets here in Australia with no history of dictatorships or wars within this country. The psy-op is being implemented quite efficiently no thanks to the criminal mainstream media. They have kept the majority in their trance like stupor with the $$$ being dangled out here and there to keep them prisoner in their own homes. All of this evil that is being directed to the Australian people is war against them. This is a cull of the population of the world. Rockefeller – Lock Step – look it up.
    I truly believe that somehow and very soon more people will come to see this for what it is – they are being attacked by their own Government. We outnumber them big time! We need to show them that we are DONE with their attacks and WE will have NO MORE.

  4. Once again, a spot on analysis of this disgraceful situation. Thank you Tott News. This is what we should be getting from the mainstream media; but of course, that’s never going to happen!

    Victoria has definitely reached 1984/Brave New World status. I wonder how long till the ‘second wave’ hits the rest of the country!

    As per comments above, it’s depressing how blind and docile most people are – standing idly by, or cowering in fear of this ‘deadly virus,’ while their rights, freedoms and future are being stripped away from them. If I open my mouth, I’m accused by family and friends of being a ‘conspiracy theorist.’ How can they not see what’s going on? Cognitive dissonance is rife!

  5. This is unbelievable we really are becoming a Marxist-Leninist hellhole! I wouldn’t be surprised if Dicky Dan authorities lethal force next!

  6. Time for D.H. Dan and the corrupt police supporting him are rounded up and incarcerated. They need to be quarantined from the rest of society!

  7. All Victorian’s have practically lost of of their precious few remaining civil liberties under this declaration of state of disaster by Daniel Andrews.

    The Victorian state government under Daniel Andrews can now do the following:

    1) Access infinite government resources
    2) Control the actions committed by any government agency
    3) Suspend any active laws in Victoria
    4) Confiscate any Victorian’s property
    5) Control any Victorian’s movements

    I wrote a piece about this on my website going over the Emergency Management Act 1986 law that gives them these excessive powers at the link below.

  8. ‘States of…’ are not states. Anything with an ‘of’ is a corporate fiction. Corpororation.

    Corpse

    ‘Corp-‘=the dead.
    ‘oration’=speak.
    Therefore, make believe ‘corporation’=The dead speak.

    Under attack by the ‘speaking dead’, zombies trumping flesh and blood mankind.

    So scary. [sarc]

  9. I’m so scared, I feel like theres no hope left and there’s no point to anything. I can’t do anything and it looks like when I finally can… There’ll be nothing left anyway. I can’t believe the elderly have let this happen and done this to us. They’ve taken everything.
