In May 2019, the Australian government announced their desire to spend $1 billion purchasing land to create a $200 billion high-speed rail link between Melbourne and Brisbane, via Sydney and the capital Canberra. The air route between Melbourne and Sydney is the third busiest in the world, so high speed rail is likely to be very popular.
The government has been trying to get this project off the ground for many years – for example in 2018 and 2016.
Conveniently for the government, the value of all the land around the route has now plummeted thanks to the devastation of this summer’s wildfires – many of which were deliberately lit.
Here is Australia’s existing inter-state rail infrastructure. While it may look like most of the country is completely uncovered, there are very few people in these areas. This is the Australian “Outback”.
This video was recorded almost a month ago, in the wake of the volcanic explosion in New Zealand at White island. Since then the fires in Australia have become much worse. 26 humans and many millions of animals have been killed.
The great Australian truther Peekay Censored has done some good videos about what’s going on with these fires (Warning: Explicit Language):
Peekay points out the similarities to the location of the fires and the plans for a new high-speed rail link in South-Eastern Australia.
This was also one of the speculated conspiracies behind the recent California fires, as we covered in this post:
The headline basically says it all. Re-blogged from Sydney’s Daily Telegraph (emphasis ours):
POLICE have charged 17 people with drug offences after an operation at Australia’s version of the Burning Man festival.
The large-scale long weekend police operation at the Burning Seed festival in the Matong Forest, near Wagga Wagga concludes tomorrow with police seizing a large number of drugs.
Sergeant Maggie Deall said there had been 40 drug detections and a total of 70 drug exhibits seized with additional police from Sydney helping in the operation.
“Some of those drug detections involve multiple drug possession matters,” she said.
“We have actually come across 36 different types of drugs; ranging from the party drugs that are fairly standard at these events.
“Ecstasy, MDMA, cocaine, all the way through to magic mushrooms, cannabis, and prescribed restricted substances like buprenorphine…People are so laissez-faire about their drug use given that they’re so far from medical help, I think it’s a fairly risky behaviour to undertake,” Sergeant Deall said.
“You may have taken 100 different pills, 100 different times and nothing has happened.
“You never know what’s in them. The next one could be the pill that kills you.”
The festival is now in its seventh year…
Those charged are believed to be from Sydney, Melbourne, the Northern Territory and even Germany and all listed to appear in court over the next couple of weeks.
Police have wrapped up their first ever drug operation at Burning Seed festival — Australia’s version of Burning Man — charging 17 punters with drug offences.
Cops with sniffer dogs set up a roadblock at the entrance to the ‘deep space’ themed music festival, which is currently underway at ‘Red Earth City’ in the Matong Forest, west of Wagga Wagga, seizing “a large variety of drugs” including cannabis, mushrooms, cocaine and ketamine.
“Police are very concerned with the amount of drugs that people are trying to take into the festival and the danger to their health and safety,” Acting Inspector Maggie Deall from Wagga Wagga police station tells the ABC.
While a dude named Rodney, who volunteers as second-in-command on the festival’s front gate, argues that the majority of the event’s attendees were ex-hippies who aren’t even that into drugs.
“I’m 35 and I’m one of the younger ones there really,” he says. “It’s not a drug-fuelled music festival. You can lose yourself without having to get inebriated.”
Punters angry about the police presence at this year’s festival have flooded the Burning Seed Facebook page, calling for the event to be shunted interstate where drug detection isn’t as tough.
A “punter” in Aussie parlance means a participant. It also means gambler, so perhaps they are suggesting that these 17 chose to try their chances against the sniffer dogs and came out on the losing side.
ACT, Australian Capital Territory, is not technically a State of Australia, it is a special district – like District of Columbia in Washington D.C., or Distrito Federal in Mexico City, or the City of London. Interesting that they are making a play now for the rave scene. It’s home to the nation’s capital city Canberra, where the politicians rule the country from. Canberra is a notorious hotbed of porn and prostitutes, another city laid out from a Masonic masterplan.
Maybe the Feds want to move Seed out closer to Pine Gap, all the better to keep the All-Seeing Eye of JORN on the trippers…
