Kā Austrijā cīnās ar blogeriem un vārda brīvību

Some people may receive defamation charges from the Austrian Ministry of Justice and feel a little dejected. After all, such charges carry a jail setence.


However, for me, it was a moment of great pride. This is because the defamation charges underlined that the alternative media is now a force that has become so powerful that it has broken the stranglehold of the mainstream media controlled by a small clique in Austria.

Indeed, the independent media is clearly now so influential that it the whole machinery of repression has to be wheeled into action to crush the freedom of speech of a  blogger, including the mighty Ministry of Justice.

The desire to crush, silence and destroy a critic, however, collided with the immovable granite of fact and evidence – and facts are what count even in an Austrian court of law in the new environment of transparency created by the internet.

As a result, state prosecutor Bernhard Löw was forced to drop the defamation carges.

Law Professor Petra Velten also received similar defamation charges after criticising the animal right’s trial; they were dropped about the same time  as mine.

In my case, I not only received the defamation charges, I was also a victim of a cynical and brazen state-organsied attempt to silence me. Justice officials at every level conspired to try to place me under a court guardianship this summer – and it is worth asking whether Raiffeisen Bank itself and other corporations like Baxter and their pet politicians like Maria Rauch Kallat had a hand in this given the enormou influence they have on the government.

The company Kleider Bauer initiated the animal rights trial, it was emerged. Rauch Kallat and her husband, armaments lobbyist Mensdorff-Pouilly, also took legal action against the activists, it has emerged.


A court guardianship would have resulted in my being stripped of all my civil rights, and reduced to the status of a slave of corrupt justice officials and their corporate paymasters.

I would have been stripped of the right even to access my own bank account. A court guardian would have had the authority to run all my affairs and could even have consigned me to a pyschiatric asylum for forced medication in an action reminiscent of the Nazi era.

It has turned out that the Ministry of Justice gave instructions to the corruption state prosecutor and other judicial bodies to allow Judge Michaela Lauer to engage in a criminal misuse of her position to place me under this court guardianship – and so has been caught red-handed in criminal activity itself. It has to be asked: who gave the Ministry of Justice the instructions?

It is a well known fact that the political and business influence on the Ministry of Justice is huge.

On December 10th, the same ministry slapped defamation charges on me, though I had escaped the court guardianship at the end of August because of the clear, incontrovertible evidence that the statement being used to impose it was false.

Someone very powerful wanted me out of the way – and it may not have been just Baxter and Rauch Kallat.

Rauch Kallat as ÖVP Health Minister signed the Austrian pandemic plan into law in 2005 that guaranteed Baxter huge profits from government pandemic vaccine contracts if Baxter triggered a pandemic.

In February 2009, Baxter then nearly did trigger just such a pandemic by circumventing all the biosecurity procedures in place – a fact that points to a deliberate action and sparked an investigation by state prosecutors following my criminal charges in April 2009.

Rauch Kallat’s pandemic plan foresees provisions for making vaccination with th pandemic jab compulsory.

Since September this blog has largely focussed on the bank crisis scam, and some banks may also be happy to see my blog end.

Banks  have lost no real capital in this financial crisis, and yet they have received billions in tax payers money. Thanks to the way the fractional reserve banking system and fair value accountin rule works, banks can create money – and phantom debts – out of thin air as Vienna Economics Professr Franz Hörmann explained in an interview in Der Standard in October.

Banks like Hypo Alpe Adra and Hypo Niederösterreich have sucked billions from Austria tax payers by creating paper losses and persuading their friends in political office to pass legislation to nationalise the banks, putting tax payers on the hook.

Austrian taxpayers were forced to pick up the bill in 2009 for the nationalisation of Hypo Alpe Adria because the gigantic phantom losses it made were ten times more than the budget of the  federal state of Carinthia at 1.8 billion, which had guaranteed Hypo’s losses.

In the same way, the way is now being paved for tax payers in the eurozone to pick up the bill for the gigantic phantom losses of banks in countries like Ireland that are far higher than anything the country can ever hope to repay even if it hands over all its tax revenue and sells off all its assets..

The new perrmanent European Stability Mechanism (ESM) is effectively a 700-billion euro ($995-billion) fund for banks.

The scale of the looting will leave states with too little money to pay pensions, unemployment or fund schools etc – and the solution being planned is clearly a major war. Military intervention in Libya is being led by French President Nicolas Sarkozy, one of the key players in the looting of tax payers by banks.

Given the scale of the looting, banks like Raiffeisen can surely not be too happy about a blogger like myself circumventing the  mainstreammedia Raiffeisen largely controls.

Raiffeisen dominates the Austrian media and holds shares in or has financed a huge list of local media companies including Kurirer, News, profil, Format, Österreich, APA, SAT 1 Österreich and ORF subsidiary ORS.

Indeed, Raiffeisen is the biggest company in Austria, according to Hans Weiss (Schwarzbuch Landwirtschaft). It  is active in just about every sector, even enjoying generous subsidies from the European Union for its growing agricultural arm.

“Whoever confronts Raiffeisen has to reckon with being intimidated,“ says Weiss (page 105, Schwarzbuch Landwirtschaft).

Raiffeisen boss Christian Konrad threatened to sue parliamentarians who wanted to hold an inquiry into ist Eastern European business operations in 2006, and they abandoned the plan.

Weiss calls Konrad „allegedly the most powerful man in Austria“ and maintains that Raiffeisen Bank pulls the strings of the ÖVP party.

There are so many ÖVP parliamentarians who also work for Raiffeisen, that they are just need one more member to form a fraction in parliament on their own.

Justice Minister Dr Claudia Bandion-Ortner was appointed after a meeting with Raiffeisen boss Christian Konrad. What was discussed during this meeting is not clear: Bandion Ortner has refused to answer parliamentary questions.

Given this context, it is reasonable to ask whether a call from Raiffeisen prompted the extraordinary and well documented attempt by justice officials to rob me of my liberty and inheritance in broad daylight, and it is reasonable to ask whether, when that failed Raiffeisen intitiated the extraordinary defamation charges in a brazen attempt to silence me?

„Crow, black moloch and green Mafia – these are just sme of the many names for Raiffeisen,“ says Weiss.

‚Foolish’ might be another word that springs to mind given the evidence of a state-organised crime in my case and the question that is bound to be asked about just who had the motivation to silence me and  who the power over the state apparatus to do it in this specific way.
