Not a moment too soon.
Massive Development in Victoria, Australia – Major Trade Union CFMEU Goes To War Against Union Leadership and Politicians Over Mandated Vaccinations – Premier Daniel Andrews Shuts Down Industry
The Construction, Forestry, Maritime, Mining and Energy Union (CFMEU) has declared war against their own leadership, John Setka (left, circled), for not fighting against the mandatory COVID vaccine. As he was attempting to hunker down in his office headquarters, union boss John Setka physically came under attack from his own union membership over his political relationship with Victorian Premier Daniel Andrews.
This is the U.S. equivalent of AFL-CIO members launching a violent uprising against former union President Richard Trumka; and then Trumka running to Joe Biden for help and protection from his own membership.
The CFMEU members are the heavy-hitting blue-collar construction and dirty fingernail workers, and the leadership of the CFMEU are the thug-like mobsters who run the union.
Just like the AFL-CIO or UAW in America, the union leadership in Australia is politically corrupt and disconnected from the members they serve. Earlier today (AU-time), the union members organized to confront the union leadership.
When CFMEU union boss John Setka tried to weasel his way out of the confrontation things turned violent. The members have had enough of the lockdowns, ridiculous COVID regulations and now the forced vaccinations. Setka shouted, “What do you want me to do, shut it down?” The members erupted in cheers. Yes, that is exactly what they want.
The trade union members recognize their leadership is politically corrupt and supporting the totalitarian rules of the government. After things turned violent, Setka was forced to retreat to his office and position his foot-soldiers at the doors to protect him. The members launched a full frontal assault on the building, smashing windows, throwing bottles and forcing Setka’s thugs to run back inside.
Trapped and under assault from his own members, John Setka called for police and riot squads to rescue him from his own members. The riot police showed up in their ninja turtles uniforms and started firing rubber bullets and tear gas at the angry union members in the crowd. The workers fought back as hundreds of police units arrived to secure the building and attempt to form a defensive ring around the CFMEU building. Suffice to say, John Setka and Premier Daniel Andrews clutched their pearls and called the angry union workers a violent mob.
In an attempt to save face and give the appearance of having control over the situation; in a transparently political move; Premier Daniel Andrews then announced a retaliatory shutdown of the Victorian construction industry for two weeks. Essentially Daniels is trying to lockdown the CFMEU members, before the CFMEU members could strike.
Daniels and Setka know the members have the power in this scenario – so, they are trying to avoid the political optic of having the construction industry workers strike and lock down the economy, by being proactive and shutting down the industry. It is a face saving maneuver meant to give the illusion of power. However, shutting down the industry is what the union members wanted Union President Setka to do.
Is that all, you ask? No, it most certainly is NOT all.

Lawrence Person tells it true:
It’s not enough to break through police lines. Mobs need to track the politicians that imposed these lockdowns to their homes, bust down their doors, drag them forcibly into the street, and then tar and feather them.
Yes, indeedy. R For Resistance elaborates.
“But what can we do“? You can go out in the streets to show the monsters behind this global coup that you will not take anymore of their shit. You can fight for your rights, Human dignity for the future of your kids. This is how it’s done.
Melbourne, Australia, 18.09.2021, the People crushed the fascist regime thugs line.
And don’t think one second that these pigs didn’t deserve it!
That last line refers to a specific incident in Victoria which is one of the most abhorrent, bestial, and reprehensible acts of fascist thuggery I can remember seeing: an elderly woman lying on her back on the street, totally helpless, evincing not the most infinitesimal trace of credible threat towards…the two evil, subhuman pigs who are firing multiple streams of pepper spray directly into her face.
Deserve it? Yes. Yes, they most certainly do. In fact, getting a taste of some for-real Street Justice, being knocked ass over teacups and stomped flat as the angry mob of citizenry ignores every command issued by those goons to cease and desist, is the very LEAST they deserve.
The pic below that one features a close-up of this poor woman, who looks like somebody’s harmless old Gramma. Which I’m sure she is. The caption:
2 pathetic assholes gasing a defenceless lady on the floor that could be their mother. Why are animals like these allowed to disgrace their country?
So now that you’ve seen all that, the murderously-furious screed I’m about to uncork won’t seem over the top. Frankly, though, I don’t much care if it does.
Animals certainly fits, although it wasn’t merely “their country” they disgraced, but humanity itself. That these two rançid curs could find it within themselves to even think of dowsing with Hellfire-juice an innocuous old woman who would surely have conjured, in the minds of better men, memories of home-baked cookies and joyous childhood Christmases at the home and hearth of their own dear Grandmas is all the confirmation needed of the dominance of pure evil in the mental makeup of these two excrescences. Anyone possessed of the slightest trace of compassion and conscience would have checked fire and passed on by rather than damn themselves to Hell’s hottest corner the way they did.
But no. Incomprehensible as it must be to every decent, non-evil human being, the humane thing is of course NOT what they chose to do. Maybe this grotesque contravention of everything the words “police officer” used to mean to the general public had its roots in the increasing estrangement of LEOs from said public. Perhaps they hold a sick, perverse misperception of what police work ought and ought not to entail. Whatever the case may be, this is a mindset that of right ought to render every cop who indulges it totally unfit to work in the field. Worse yet, whatever convoluted mind-path these sadistic thugs had to walk in order to get themselves to a place where such an attack seemed kosher and in order to them is a much darker omen—because any man capable of following such a path isn’t just unfit to be a cop. The decent, the honorable, and the civilized tolerates his presence among them at their own peril.
Update! A timely reminder.
Your regular reminder that there is no such thing as government power.
When even 3-5% of the population simply says “no”, government is hopelessly outnumbered.
This was a protest of lockdowns in Australia. Police told them to go home.
They said “no”.pic.twitter.com/WFffzehyL7

Herschel steps up to put the cherry on top.
Interestingly, this tweet by someone named Evelyn Rae on the incident evoked the following reaction: “A very dark day in Australian history. I can’t believe it has got to this point.”
Funny, that. It’s just the opposite of my reaction. I think it’s one of the prouder moments in Australian history, especially after gun confiscations.
The only thing that would have made it prouder would have been for them to have shot the cops.
Does that surprise you? Remember. The pols are tyrants, and the cops are their willing enforcers. They have kidnapped people and sent them to concentration camps, and kidnapped children without permission or knowledge of their parents and taken them off for forcible vaccinations.
Tyrants and their enforcers.
Just so. The way I see it, Evelyn has it exactly backwards: the “very dark day” was the day Aussies—and Americans—sat back in passive denial and allowed the tyrants to take their liberty without a murmur of protest, in the name of false security. The day they rose up to reclaim their stolen freedom, their God-given rights, and their dignity from the oppressor was actually the day when the darkness began to lift.
