The Australian deep state may be closely controlled from London/Washington, and used as a test-ground for emerging social control legislation.

The Australian deep state was spun off the main UK deep state in the 19th century[citation needed], allowing the country to be granted formal independence in 1901. As in many other Western-aligned countries, its alignment shifted from London to Washington after 1945. Australia still keeps deep ties to Britain. Since then, the Australian deep state has shown its hand periodically by covertly removals of unwanted elected governments. In 1975, for example, the local deep state in collaboration with the US executed a a clandestine coup d'etat against Gough Whitlam. In the 21st century, the Supranational Deep State has used Australiaas a testing ground for rollbacks of civil liberties, under pretexts such as the "war on terror". In 2020-2021, the country saw extreme restrictions introduced under cover of the COVID-19 pandemic.

History

As a British colony, Australia was used by London as a dumping ground for unwanted people. As increasing demands for self-rule increased, the UK deep state created an effective Australian deep state, controlled from London. Independent was publicly declared in 1901[Why?], and confirmed by the Statute of Westminster in 1931[1], Australia developed its own diplomatic service during World War 2. As with other colonies, the UK deep state continued its control, intervening if the "democratically" chosen leaders showed too much independence.

Pre-WW2

The Adelaide Establishment is a group of wealthy landowners and industrialists who have played a considerable role in the history of South Australia since its foundation in 1836. Similar establishment existed in the other states.

After the Russian revolution in 1917, paramilitary groups such as the Old Guard and New Guard were created secure the present order.

1940s

In 1949, the government of Prime Minister Ben Chifley and Foreign Affairs Minister Herbert Vere Evatt was considered ‘unsafe’ and subjected to Cold War smears and an American-backed campaign to install the conservative Robert Menzies, an Anglophile and imperial figure as PM[2].

The Australian Security Intelligence Organisation and the Australian Security Intelligence Organisation were involved in the 1973 Chilean coup d'état, together with the CIA, as officially admitted in 2021.[3]

Removal of Gough Whitlam

Sir John Kerr, who on the CIA's orders invoked "reserve powers" and dismissed the Australian Prime minister

Gough Whitlam became Prime Minister of Australia on 5 December 1972 and carried out policies unwelcome to the UK and the USA. Some of his ministers publicly criticised the Vietnam War, condemning the US indiscriminate bombing of towns, civilian targets and dense population centres as corrupt and barbaric. Whitlam also expressed his unhappiness about the Pine Gap spy station in the middle of Australia, spying on everyone including civilians, government and military.[4] In 1974, the White House made 'coupmaster' Marshall Green the US ambassador to Australia. In 1975, a clandestine coup d'etat removed Whitlam from power.

1980s

Bob Hawke was Australian PM from 1983-1991 and "served for some time as a US intelligence informant".[5]

1990s

The Australian American Leadership Dialogue was formed in 1992, a "private diplomatic initiative". The first meeting, in June 1993, was attended US deep state affiliates including Richard Cheney, Karl Rove, Richard Armitage and Robert B. Zoellick.[6]

2000s

The Australian deep state has promoted the "war on terror".

2010s

In 2010, a cabal of Labor Party and trade union powerbrokers, acting on behalf of the US embassy, carried out what amounted to a backroom, inner-party coup to remove Prime Minister Kevin Rudd and install his deputy, Julia Gillard, as his replacement. Secret US diplomatic cables published by WikiLeaks in December 2010 revealed that “protected sources” of the US embassy were pivotal figures in Gillard’s elevation.[7]

"In the 2019 report, Australia’s democratic ‘status’ dropped. This was due to recent police raids on media outlets, the growing trend of prosecuting whistleblowers."[8]


Unlimited spying on citizenry

Full article: Australia/Universal surveillance

After a 2015 bill claimed that the government had rights to carry out very broad warrantless mass surveillance of electronic media, including banning warrant canaries. The powers claimed were so broad that they have been called "nearly unlimited",[9] but efforts continue to expand their scope and use more resources to track and monitor citizens. In December 2018, it passed laws which claim the right to compel both "local and international providers — including overseas communication giants such as Facebook and WhatsApp — to remove electronic protections, conceal covert operations by government agencies, and help with access to devices or services."[10]

2020s

COVID-19/Lockdown

Full article: COVID-19/Lockdown

Although reporting relatively few deaths due to COVID-19, Australia took a decidedly extremist line during the COVID panic of 2020, enforcing strict COVID lockdown measures and drastically curtailing freedom of speech as well as freedom of movement.

Deep state milieux

Australia has had very few Bilderbergers. The country is better represented in the Trilateral Commission. Documents from the Integrity Initiative Leak refer to an Integrity Initiative Australian cluster, although they do not reveal its membership.[11]
