for the Week:
"There is I think one safe
rule to apply to all Schemes Plots and Plans. It is called the Golden Rule and
it is not new. Disregard all the fine phrases. Disregard all appeals to your 'Public
Spirit'. Don't bother about Liberty, Equality and Fraternity. Don't waste your
time trying to find out who the Proletariat are going to dictate to when we're
all propertyless - and so all Proletariat.
Merely enquire "What are you
going to do to me, and how do I stop you if I don't like it? Can I kick your inspectors
and your Ogpu-Gestapo and your Kommissars out of my (excuse me, my mistake, the
proletariat's) house, or can they kick me? If I believe it isn't my business to
spend the rest of my life making tractors for China, and say so, do I get my coupons,
or don't I?
If you ask the Utopian this kind of question, you will
discover an interesting fact - that one of the biggest parts of the Big Idea is
the indispensability of the Ogpu. Or call it the Gestapo - or the G-men. Or the
"snoopers". We don't hear much about the Ogpu these days, but, like
Benjamin Cohen of the U.S.A., it's there.
And so we come to the core of the
matter - it isn't the scheme that matters - that's just to keep you quiet
It's the sanctions that matter. You think the World State would be governed by
Saints? Remember the wise Lord Acton, 'Absolute Power corrupts absolutely.'"

The headline and
cartoon says it all "Howard's $2.5bn Water Grab" (The Australian 25/1/07
The cartoon has Howard as a TV weather-boy
pointing to a map of Australia with dollar signs over each State. The League has
warned that Canberra control of the Murray-Darling Basin will lead to further
degradation and exploitation of water resources.
water corporations already monopolise precious water resources and stand to be
the real benefactors of Howard's plan as they continue to sell off water and water
Out of all of this, South Australia
will be the worst off, but this relatively low migration State is no doubt regarded
by the elites as expendable and can go into the waste basket of history.
is truly appalling about this event is that even though the Constitution itself
protects the State's control over water, according to The Australian article,
Howard has "obtained high-level advice that clears the way for it to wrest control
from the States."
Realisation of worst
So the lawyers have worked out another way to get around the
Constitution, and you can bet that the centralist and symbiotic High Court will
deliver the right judgement. Just use the Corporations Power, which as they recently
held, is virtually unlimited in extent.
is what Australia has become, the realisation of the worst nightmares of Major
Clifford Hugh Douglas: a place where Monopoly has triumphed. The League, a David,
stands its ground against this Goliath.
JEREMY LEE WRITES TO STATES' PREMIERS (Have you?)
Powers and call for Referendum. (Letters also to Iemma and Beattie).
Hon Mike Rann, Premier, South Australia, Parliament House, Adelaide 5000:
You are absolutely right to resist the Federal takeover of powers
over water. Prime Minister Howard's move is not so much a spat with the States
as an attack on the people.
Section 100 of the Constitution says:
Commonwealth shall NOT, by any law or regulation of trade or commerce, abridge
the right of a State, or of the residents therein, to the waters of rivers for
conservation or irrigation" (emphasis added)
Mr Howard believes the drought has created sufficient reason for a transfer of
powers. The Constitution provides the formula for such a procedure - a referendum
of the Australian people under Chapter 128 of the Constitution.
1942 a similar attempt was made, under the excuse of wartime emergency to persuade
the States to transfer 14 powers to Canberra. Every State agreed, with the exception
of the Upper House in the smallest State, Tasmania. The leader of the Upper House,
one-time Test cricket captain Joe Darling, bluntly told Federal Attorney-General
Dr H.V. Evatt to go back to Canberra and hold a constitutional referendum, as
was his duty.
Tasmania, and Joe Darling, were
attacked for hindering the war effort, but stood firm. Frustrated,
Dr Evatt was finally forced to hold the famous "14-powers-referendum" in 1944.
There was a massive vote "No" in every State, with the biggest vote against in
Tasmania! It is always under threat of crisis or emergency that the Commonwealth
seeks to by-pass the Constitution.
trading on the Stock Exchange, the separation of water and land titles, the foreign
and corporate 'ownership' of water, the blasphemous claim that "ownership of all
water is vested in the State", and the transfer of power over water from the States
to the Commonwealth are all ultra vires and should not be contemplated without
the peoples' consent.
This, as Mr Howard knows,
is both the letter and the spirit of the Constitution, and to disregard it is
an abuse of power. Absolute power corrupts absolutely!
this why tuition on the Constitution and its history has been weeded out of the
school curriculum? Please stand, firm, Mr Rann, not
only on behalf of South Australians, but on behalf of all Australians currently
being muzzled by power-crazy politicians and bankers.
sincerely Jeremy Lee, Ravensbourne Queensland.
all do just what Jeremy has done:
Write to our political representative
and State Premier protesting this power grab by Howard. Surely the Commonwealth
and the States could agree to work together for the GOOD of ALL the Australian
people without the States handing over their Constitutional powers over water?
Ask Howard is he threatening he will withhold the finances IF the States
don't hand over their Constitutional powers to the Commonwealth? Just whose money
does he think he is handling?
DECISION: RACIAL DISCRIMINATION ACTThe Sydney
Morning Herald reported 4/2/07 Pastor Anthony Grigor-Scott of Bible Believers
has been ordered to remove from his website "a hate-filled" newsletter
that refers to the 'Holocaust hoax' and claims Jews have 'monopolistic control'
over (the) world's media and film.
The Executive Council of Australian
Jewry instigated proceedings against Pastor Grigor-Scott and his website. The
Federal Court ruled that some parts of the website contravened the Racial Discrimination
If Truth was a defence in this strange legal-world of racial and
religious vilification - where Truth is No Defence - Pastor Grigor-Scott could
suggest that before making a judgement the judge read the facts in such books
as: "The High Priests of War" and "The New Jerusalem - Zionist

its instructions to the public of South Australia for action.
It relates the
legal experiences of the two pastors, Danny Nalliah and Daniel Scot as On Target

story at the National Seminar a few years ago.)
14th of December 2006 the Victorian Appeal Court upheld the appeal by the two
pastors against the 2004 decision of the Victorian Civil and Administrative Tribunal

But the pastors' case has been sent back to the Tribunal,
to be heard again by a different judge to be heard again later this year.

WARMING AN 'APOCALYPTIOC RELIGION'?
Andrew Bolt (Herald Sun 2/2/07) has whipped up a global summer storm, or
should I say "whipped up a global warming", by questioning the dire apocalyptic
predictions from some of Australia's environmental 'experts'.
wrote: "Scarier than global warming is that even - even? - our top academics exaggerate
so wildly about it. No, I'm not talking again about Tim Flannery, our Australian
of the Year, but of his former friend and colleague, Mike Archer. Read on, to
see again how recklessly even our men of science now feed you hype. Archer is
dean of science at the University of NSW, where, you'd hope, he teaches students
to stick to the facts. But this week he wrote an apocalyptic piece on global warming
for the Sydney Morning Herald, warning of a Noah's flood:
if the Greenland and Antarctica ice-sheets melt (which they are doing in spectacular
fashion), sea levels could rise, as they have done many times in the past, by
100m. If that were to happen, forget the metre-in-a-century mantra, and forget
half of Sydney, along with most of the world's coastal populations."
it? Forget the seas rising a metre by 2100. Says Archer, the melt of Greenland
and Antarctica is so "spectacular" our beach by then will start at Eltham. Except
for this. Origins of the 'global storm'? The United Nations' Intergovernmental
Panel on Climate Change has whipped up most of the warming panic, but even its
latest report -out today - will challenge every claim Archer makes.
Reuters reported yesterday, a draft of that report, the work of 2500 scientists,
concedes that, no, Antarctica may well gain snow cover, even Greenland may not
be melting overall and the seas will rise not by 100m in the 100 years, but at
most by 43cm. It continued: "More snows could also offset any thaw of the vast
Antarctic ice cap and the smaller cap on Greenland. If both melted over thousands
of years world sea levels would be about 65m . .. higher (emphasis added). "In
a warmer climate, models suggest that the ice sheets could accumulate more snowfall,
tending to lower sea level," the draft says. But "rapid thawing at the fringes
has probably outweighed any such trend in recent years."
Confirming what I wrote on Wednesday, Reuters added: "The IPCC is .. .set
to predict sea level rises this century of between 28 and 43cm . . . a lower band
than forecast in the 2001 report."
how could a dean of science at a top university exaggerate so recklessly? Answer:
because global warming is a religion, so facts don't count. Beware."
ANOTHER REPORT - HYSTERIA AT HERZLIYA
Patrick J. Buchanan
"...America is on a collision course with an Iran of 70
million, and the folks who stampeded us into Iraq are firing pistols in the air
again. At the annual Herzliya Conference [in Israel] U.S. presidential aspirants,
neoconservatives and Israeli hawks were all invoking the Holocaust and warning
of the annihilation of the Jews... Israel's war is to be sold as America's war.
The project is under way. According to Peter Beaumont, foreign affairs editor

US TO STRIKE AT IRAN
FROM BULGARIA AND ROMANIA?
The Sunday Herald in Glasgow,
Scotland reported 31 January 2007:
"President Bush is preparing to attack
Iran's nuclear facilities before the end of April and the US Air Force's new bases
in Bulgaria and Romania would be used as back-up in the onslaught, according to
an official report from Sofia.
"American forces could be using their two USAF
bases in Bulgaria and one at Romania's Black Sea coast to launch an attack on
Iran in April," the Bulgarian news agency Novinite said...
the Bulgarian news report is a tactical feint or a strategic event is hard to
gauge at this stage... Sofia's news of advanced war preparations along the Black
Sea is backed up by some chilling details."
DON'T UPSET THE MUSLIMS
Ghassan Hage, Chairman (Chairperson?) of the Department of Anthropology
at the University of Sydney ("Values to Have and to Have Not," The Australian
27/9/06 p.34) wrote an article criticising the conservative campaign on values.
Hage agrees that there "is a section of the Muslim community that is not well
integrated into Australian society". However the conservative campaign on values
"can produce precisely the Muslim alienation and resentment it is supposedly combating."
Well for "progressives" (like Hage)
values are things one pursues whilst conservatives see them as part of a cultural
tradition being things one has. But Hage argues, conservatives introduce a "class
society divided between the haves and have-nots of values. It brings the insecurity
that is always part of any claim to have something: Is what I have good enough?
If what I have is so good, how come I don't feel fantastic?
stuff in a post-modernism kind of way: class, race, inequality and all the other
sorts of politically correct stuff coming from one analysis. It is the sort of
stuff that Australian Research Council (ARC) grants and Ph.D. scholarships are
made of. Hage also says that London's home-grown terrorists would have passed
any English values test.
It is a good point,
but it really undermines his ethicist/multicultural world-view. Aren't Marxist
- oops, sorry, my mistake - "progressive" values acquired? And what about these
idealised values - say of multicultural tolerance? What if the cool groups, perish
the thought, God forbid, don't accept bleeding heart liberalism?
Here is some recommended reading on this subject, relevant
in the wake of the present Pope's comments on Muhammad. Robert Spencer, New York
Times best selling author, is soon to release "The Truth About Muhammad: Founder
of the World's Most Intolerant Religion," (Regnery Publishing, 2006 ISBN 1596980281)
which challenges the worldview of the tolerance team, as exemplified by leading
academics like Hage. Spencer argues in this book or he did in other works that
Islam is incompatible with liberalism.
See also Robert Spencer, "The Myth
of Islamic Tolerance: How Islamic Law Threatens Non-Muslims," (Promethus Books,
2005) and "The Politically Incorrect Guide to Islam (and the Crusades)" (Regnery,
Further material for a refutation of
Hage is supplied by a new book by Mark Steyn, "America Alone: The End of the World
as We Know It," (Regnery, 2006) which sees Europe, with its multicultural tolerance,
falling to radical Islam and Sharia law, and only America (and possibly Australia)
continuing the tradition of the West.
By 2015 Muslims will make up the
majority of The Netherlands population: still think that immigration and multiculturalism
won't lead to racial suicide? Bruce Bawer, author of "While Europe Slept," cites
polls showing that 40 per cent of Britain's Muslims wish to see Britain under
Multiculturalism is a cancer that ultimately kills the host
society. According to Oriana Fallaci, "Europe is no longer Europe, it is 'Eurabia',
a colony of Islam, where the Islamic invasion does not proceed only in the physical
sense but also in a mental and cultural sense.
Servility to the invaders has
poisoned democracy, with obvious consequences for the Freedom of Thought, for
the concept itself of liberty." (Source: The Weekend Australian 7-8/10/2006

"The Contribution of Greek Thought to Western Christian Civilisation"
at a Dinner Meeting to be held at: The Public Schools' Club, 207 East Terrace
(cnr. Carrington), Adelaide; Monday 5th March 2007.
will be a very special event and we encourage you to make every effort to be present.
The Archbishop's address will be filmed as well as audio-taped to enable a wider
We would be pleased to have
your company at the Dinner Meeting and ask you to phone Doug and Jean Holmes on
08 8258 7005 to make your bookings - by Thursday 1st March 2007. The cost per
person is a modest $21.00 for a tasty two-course meal with coffee/tea afterwards.
"The Hungry Sheep": Over many years
Eric Butler referred to the writings of Sir David Kelly, who wrote of the importance
of the Greek influence in the development of Western Culture; the Greek appreciation
and love of beauty, the search for form and balance and wholeness - including
the very processes of thought.
Sir David insisted: "The differences
between Christians and Pagans or Moslems had not been one of race or language,
but a gulf between two spiritual worlds. The transition had been a change not
only of religious beliefs, but of laws, customs, art, even a new script.
secularist tendency of the last three centuries had detached some Christian principles
from their context - the rights of man, liberty, equality (before God) social
justice; when the lack of an independent basis for these ideas was realised, men
turned to nationalism, class, or race, starting a new world of exclusive antagonistic
ideologies which undermine the very existence of Western civilisation."
as Sir David noted: "Everything therefore depends on whether our culture and our
religion can be reintegrated.
As an example only - it was asked of the Archbishop
How can we discuss
a 'just wage' if the matter of a 'just' price' is not also discussed. If a farmer
does not receive a just price for his product, but is bound by law to pay a 'just
wage' to his employees - even though it sends him bankrupt by doing so - then
the 'whole' matter has not been examined and injustice results. But of course
the labourer must also receive a 'just wage'. So, to take it a little further,
to discuss a 'just price' and a 'just wage' we must also look at a 'just money
system' and to do this we must also examine what is a 'just tax' -- from a Christian
to your company at the Dinner!
Mr.Peter Costello, M.P; Treasurer of Australia, Parliament House,
In respect to the G.20 protesters. I speak
not on behalf of the organised rabble who made war on our police, but as I meditated
over the real cause of the violence I thought of the incomparable violence unleashed
by the effects of our nation adopting a Marxist economic and financial policy
which has reduced us to pawns of the international debt merchants.
It is fitting
you are now selling off our water supply to them. We are now under the control
of a satanic evil force. Our mendicant government is only allowed to operate so
long as it remains a pawn of that evil force.
three years ago Gough Whitlam came to power as a reaction against the treachery
of the growing Liberal Marxism. He went centralist berserk, and per the grace
of a Christian Constitution and a valiant Governor General the Australian people
gave Malcolm Fraser a record majority to undo the devilry he had inflicted on
He revealed himself as a greater traitor than Whitlam. At the time we
had the basis of an Australian banking system, we owned our water, our public
transport, our communications, and our electricity. Australian industry was dotted
with Australian icons of which some 98 percent have been sold off since to foreign
I've lost count of our foreign
debt, but it is over half a trillion dollars, i.e. over 500 billion. Our economy
is a debt-ridden shell, and your government prides itself on having sold off all
our public assets to pay the debt merchants.
gave your government two options, serve God or serve mammon. You chose to serve
mammon. Both you and John Howard protest you are Christians. How God must weep
at such mammoth hypocrisy. When it comes to unleashing terror and violence, the
Howard-Costello government has no superior.
bother sending a reply from one of your minders. I fully realise you will not
have the guts to reply yourself. I write only to send copies to some of my Christian
leaders to encourage them to look more closely at the diabolical policies which
have reduced Australia to a moral and spiritual ruin.

so loved the world (of men):
To: The Editor, Herald Sun, 7th February
For all his huffing and puffing Christopher Bantick ('Jesus loves Bali
victims', 7/2) does not successfully land a blow on Archbishop Freier. Bantick's
opening concession that the Archbishop was theologically correct in supporting
publicly displayed church signs that 'Jesus loves Osama' is valid and entirely
overrules all his subsequent complaints.
The claim that the signs amount to
'a declaration of support' for a currently reviled terrorist is completely without
foundation, as Bantick should have realised from the statement by Bishop Davies
which he himself quotes.
Of course God's unconditional love for each and every
one of his creatures does not imply approval and condoning of their sins. Nor
are these signs 'ill-timed'. They are a fair use of shock tactics to make passers-by
As for Bantick's quite separate attack on the Archbishop's choice of
'expensive and ornate ceremonial trappings of office' at his installation, this,
too, is wide of the mark. Such splendour of dress and ritual is symbolic of the
glory of God and gives great joy and consolation, for that reason, to the faithful
who view it.
