Irish Government Begins Implementing Police State: Legislating To Read Emails WhatsApp And Social Media

% of readers think this story is Fact. Add your two cents.

New legislation will allow for “covert electronic surveillance”.

GARDAÍ ARE SET to be given powers to crack down on criminals communicating using emails, social media and messaging apps in Ireland. Minister for “Justice” Frances Fitzgerald has told reporters that she plans to extend the Proceeds of Crime Bill which was brought in during the mid 1990′s after the shooting dead of a Journalist which gave rise to the legislation Bills implementation in 1996.

Fitzgerald plans

Fitzgerald plans on extending these society based rules without putting them before the people of Ireland, for a referendum on whether or not the Irish citizens agree with their social and civil liberties being infringed upon unconstitutionally.

The Granting of powers

As granting such powers to the Irish police state will allow Garda Siochana to SPY on internet communications between users on the internet throughout Ireland. Just how will the Gardaí be able to differentiate between a criminal’s IP Address (internet protocal address) and an ordinary users IP Address is unknown. I can only speculate this will be a widespread surveillance operation which must be objected.

Minister for Injustice – Francis Fitzgerald

The Fitzgerald Agenda, and implementation of CAB (Criminal Assets Bureau)

Fitzgerald claims gun crime is out-of-control and her amendment bill will target a criminals wealth and bring about peace on our tiny Island. The facts couldn’t be further from the truth. Her bills are nothing to do with controlling gun and drug crime. They are solely to authorize monitoring of social networks and social apps like Facebook Messenger, and Whats App, Skype and alike. 
Fitzgerald has not provided any proof how these measures will reduce the criminal accessibility of guns and criminal feuds. The conspicuous facts of these intrusive bills to-be drafted today will provide a mechanism for the Irish police state to monitor all citizen activity unconstitutionally. The ultimate infringement of a persons civil liberty, and personal data will be intercepted inside a person’s home. 

The constitution states Constitution Article: 40.5

The Constitution (Bunreacht na hÉireann) declares that the dwelling of a citizen in Ireland is inviolable and shall not be entered forcibly except in accordance with the law. This means that no one, including the Gardai (Irish police force), may enter the place where you live without a warrant or other legal authority to enter.
If you are arrested as a result of an unlawful entry into your home, your arrest is illegal. Evidence obtained as a result of an unlawful entry onto your dwelling is inadmissible in court. Your right to inviolability of dwelling is set down in Article 40.5 of the Constitution. Further, to this article; any other statutory act would be a violation of the constitutions article 40.5. Its my understanding that a referendum is required to allow Gardai to supersede article 40.5.   

In a statement yesterday, the minister has said 

it is her aim to “enhance and update the legislative framework for the lawful interception of communications and for covert electronic surveillance”, something that will allow Gardaí to:
Combat the threats from serious and organised crime and terrorism.

My Journalistic opinion 

CAB is nothing more than a corporate entity enforced by revenue which is another corporate entity with legislative permissions of ability to extract funds from you in every which way we earn a living in this capitalist society… CAB is a direct infringement to the sovereign rights of the Irish nation as it is not a separate entity to the Irish state. It’s staff and board members are dictated too by members of the ministry for the Royal Oireachtas (Irish Free State – Dail).

Part of Fitzgerald’s service record

Since her inception as Justice Minister, she has undermined democracy in a number of ways. Let me outline some points for you:

  • (A) Failure to deal with Child abuse claims regarding the handling of a case by previous health Minister: Michael Noonan - Grace.
  • (B) A Fianna Fail politician accused of interfering in a murder investigation and calling off said murder investigation - MaryBoyle. And miss-information in the Philip Cairnes Case.
  • (C) Morris McCabe and other high profile claims surrounding the handling of Garda Malpractice.
  • (D) Totalitarian Political Policing surrounding Irish Water, and a TD, Paul Murphy who was penalised for the right to peaceful protest.
  • (E) The lack of political enforcement on the state broadcaster RTE, to coordinate honesty in its news castings, as apposed to the state peddled crap it has been pushing on behalf of right-wing flavored propaganda parties. 

The list is endless, but to spare the readers sanity, this will suffice for now….

Fitzgerald has proved to the citizens of Ireland that she is a fascist toxic bully advocating her right-wing policy’s which have had devastating consequences between the Gardai and civilian communities throughout Ireland. All a direct result of her politically malicious actions as the minister for justice.

Her imposition on the electorate has caused a tidal wave of people to rise against the Government throughout Social media. Fitzgerald’s true judicial principles lay in favour of further legislation to restrict the right to free speech by implementing extended legislation for CAB.

It is painfully obvious a corruptly state run entity such as the Gardai with no public confidence remaining whatsoever will be used to spy on activists, journalists, and possible whistle-blowers if this legislation is allowed be implemented. I have personally called on TDs to object to this legislation on one of two occasions and I suggest you do the same. 

The Journal; an Irish tabloid reported:

How is property considered to be the proceeds of crime? 

One nuance of the Proceeds of Crime Act – which legislates for the seizure criminal assets – is thatit is a civil act, not a criminal one.
What this means is that for a person’s assets to be seized they do not necessarily need to be convicted of a crime – as property is targeted, not the individual.
The determination about whether or not property can be taken comes down from the Garda Chief Superintendent, whose opinion later admitted as evidence.

My Journalistic Conclusion

I don’t make these remarks lightly, but it is very clear, that both of the leading political parties in Ireland are involved in deep dark corrupt and delicate scandals as I have precisely outlined a minority of them above.

A worrying concern for the establishment was previously broadcast on RTE; a rise in consumers actually get their news from Social Media sources like Facebook, reports RTE. This is a direct consequence of having a corruptly run unstable and biased state news provider.

I admonishingly advocate Irish people no longer recognize RTE as their state broadcaster for public news, and solely trust the sources of news from their local social media communities in which will now be policed circumstantially and directly after the release of the Mary Boyle Documentary two days ago.

Untold story of a little girl raped and murdered – Covered up by the Irish Government

A Trip Back To The 90′s - Ireland’s Child Sex Ring

I found this very coincidental given rise to the number of abuse reports sparking tabloid forecasts such as Gemma O’Doherty who is on the verge of exposing a politically run joint pedophile ring allegedly operating out of Donegal, Ireland.

Former Justice Minister Shatter: Refusing to tell victims the results of investigation

Reports claims from a number of news sources covering a number of articles which connect prominent political figures from established political parties to murder investigations as well as a long list of Child Abuse claims.

With a substantiating high volume of abuse reports, is it any wonder the Irish Government are using criminal activity as an excuse to clamp down on social media networks – the public and civil source of free speech?
