On the mid-week edition of WilmsFront my guest is MMA Fighter Nick “Banjo” Patterson whose training clinic has remained open in an act of civil disobedience against Victoria’s continued lockdown lunacy despite the coronavirus infection curve as flat as can be. Plus an update on triggered China and their threats against Australia.
Victorian Premier Daniel Andrews has refused to follow other states in relaxing lockdown provisions keeping Victorians under house arrest only allowed to leave the house for “essential reasons”. Victoria Police have issued the most penalty infringement notices of any state during the lockdown to people they deem to be out of the house without a “reasonable excuse”. Some of the more ludicrous fines have been withdrawn.
Two Victoria Police officers visited Nick’s MMA clinic last Wednesday night and returned with 22 police and an official from the Victorian Department of Health and Human Services on Friday night. They never entered the premises as Nick stood his ground and asserted his rights. He has not heard from them since.
MMA training is Nick’s livelihood and he’s lost almost all of his clients despite remaining open. He’s willing to fight the state at every escalation point. We won’t get our freedoms back unless we ask for them, the power that Daniel Andrews has is only there because the people have given it to him.
Nick filmed and uploaded both his encounters to the Solutions Empowerment Vimeo channel along with a vlog from a training session inside his facility and his full interview with Channel Seven’s Paul Dowsley. Solutions Empowerment is financial and government rights assertion educational website with an associated online community.
In the second half of the show, I discuss China’s continued triggered threats to Australia over our bipartisan call for an independent international investigation into the origins of the coronavirus. I also explore the claim that Queensland Premier Annastacia Palaszczuk staged her flu vaccination.
