Digital ID Will Be Voluntary the Way Covid Vaccines Were Voluntary

The same Australian Senator who promised Covid-19 injections would be voluntary is promising that Digital ID will be voluntary. What could possibly go wrong?

In the latest edition of Politician Does Doublespeak, Finance Minister Senator Katy Gallagher says that Australia’s Covid vaccination policy is voluntary and that infringements on human rights were justified because of the government’s good intentions, even if they were completely wrong.

It is very important to understand what the word “voluntary” means to Senator Gallagher, as she is currently working to legislate Digital ID, which she maintains will also be “voluntary.”

Senator Gallagher, in her capacity representing the Prime Minister, said in response to last week’s Queensland Supreme Court ruling that Covid vaccine mandates for emergency workers were ‘unlawful’,

“The Government’s position on Covid-19 vaccinations is that it is voluntary, as are all vaccinations in Australia, although we do encourage and aim to vaccinate as many people as possible.”

Under Australia’s No Jab, No Pay policy, family assistance payments are withheld from parents of children who are not vaccinated according to the National Immunisation Program schedule. Vaccination objection is not a valid exemption.

Additionally, in most states and territories, unvaccinated children cannot attend early education or care services.


And of course, under Covid vaccine mandates, unvaccinated Australians couldn’t work, couldn’t travel, couldn’t visit grandparents in aged care, couldn’t go to a gym, couldn’t sit in a restaurant, couldn’t attend their school ball.


Though most Covid vaccine mandates have now lapsed, there are still industries and workplaces requiring proof of vaccination.

    Rebekah, a brilliant piece. I must say, where does this lead me now, today? I guess, ‘preparing myself and my loved ones’ for what could be coming down the pipe. I guess, its a call to prayer too. But while the majority of our political class are comfortable with ‘double speak’, ours is to simply ‘do and die’!

    Thank you for amazing researching and exposing all of this Rebekah and for showing the what will/could play out unless we are aware and fight against this and pray its over-ruled. It is a terrible reminder of what was a time of great suffering under the COVID laws, with the division of society, the hype of media, the double talk about what was safe and for the good of all.
    It’s a real call to prayer.
    Thank God too for Senator Malcolm Roberts- he is a spokesman for the truth.

    Digital ID is the end of our Freedoms as happened with the Covid Vaccines by using the EXPEDIENCY excuse that Senatory Gallegher is using now with her big, fat LIE that the vaccines were “VOLUNTARY “! The vaccine harmed me and I am still very ill. Digital ID will impose Social Credit on us to steal all our assets for which we have worked hard all our lives . They will become the property of The Communist Elitist World Government which is proposed for us all . I suggest a Petition to get rid of that ” waste of space ” and of taxpayers’money = Minister for a Republic and his Department. Get rid of this evil Albanese government and vote to retain the Monarchy when a referendum is called as we cannot trust a change to our stable Constitution, or, we will become like Russia, China and the failed South American republics where people are in dire poverty , where the countries are in constant turmoil despite possessing enormous resources.Digital ID will allow the transfer of our collective wealth into the hands of the UN , local politicians and company directors.

    As Senator Gallagher continues to deny that the vaccine was mandatory in each state in Australia and to maintain there was no manipulation, coercion, no penalties for those who did not take it- it seems she is backing herself into a corner where finally the truth will come out and she will realise that the vaccine was in no way voluntary. As more and more evidence comes to light, there is mounting statistical evidence to show many were harmed and an excessive number died due to the vaccine which was presented as a ‘safe’ product (though was at least called ‘experimental’ )
    Similarly, the Digital ID system is also being presented by Senator Gallagher as ‘safe’ and the way is being paved to introduce a social credit digital surveillance system, as more and more banks cut back human services. This is slowly undermining the role of the local banks and forcing more of the population to rely on IT and computer run systems. The main goal is control over populations, possessions (money, land, houses), and a reward and punishment system to maintain power, to formulate undemocratic laws using coercion. Great discernment is needed and research is needed to show what has happened when this system is introduced in other countries.
    May many pray about this and God help us preserve the democratic right to choose what system to use.
    (Let us learn too from the COVID era, to question medical decisions and do the research before being manipulated.)
