24 April 2009 Thought for the Week:
I never would have agreed to the formulation of the Central Intelligence Agency back in forty-seven, if I had known it would become the American Gestapo." -- Harry S. Truman.
"And how we burned in the camps later, thinking: What would things have been like if every Security operative, when he went out at night to make an arrest, had been uncertain whether he would return alive and had to say goodbye to his family?

CHINA DECLARES CYBER-WAR!
by James Reed
As for the need for the Chinese to spy on Rudd in the first place, this is all a bit rich. Even the Opposition has recognised that Rudd, the Sinophile 's sinophile is 'a Manchurian candidate a programmed traitor, as Dennis Shanahan (The Australian 3/4/09 p.12) describes the Leader of the Opposition 's depiction. I have been promoting this thesis for as long as Rudd was Big Kev 07 and it is good to see that the truth does out.
Elaborating on the Leader of the Opposition 's theme, it seems that if he (and my humble self) are right, then Rudd in acting as an envoy for China is a national security threat, who is putting interests of China over those of Australia. There are many of the Chinese race who have lived in Australia for generations who could represent Australia as a prime minister and have no trouble at all standing up for Australia. But not Rudd. Rudd represents the devolutionary forces of the Labor Party which are anti-nation.
The arrogant Chinese have also attempted to hack into foreign embassies in Canberra and government and business IT networks. China 's cyber-war, no doubt a prelude to the forthcoming shooting war, is global in extent. No nation is safe. Cyber-warfare is not only for military information, but also for commercial information. China sees cyber-war as a way of overcoming the lead which the US has over them in conventional military hardware absurdly, many of the components have been bought from Chinese companies and no doubt could be remotely disabled, or at least rendered useless in a war when spare parts are needed.
If the West had its brain together, it would recognise that China is already at war against them. Instead of fighting a purely defensive fight, Western computer experts should retaliate against the Chinese. But our deracinated, drained-to-death governments, rotted by globalist ideology are like bunnies caught in the dazzle of the Chinese hunter 's spotlight.
COURT HEARS OF CHINESE OFFICIAL 'S FORTESCUE THREAT
Signs of what's ahead if we continue to allow Chinese Investment? Chalpat Sonti 9/4/09:
John Karkar, QC, representing Fortescue in an action before the Federal Court in Perth which could see Mr Forrest fined and banned as a company director, told Justice John Gilmour that Mr He and a Fortescue consultant, Lawrence Xin, knew each other from their schooldays and Mr Xin mentioned he had "a friend" who held shares in Fortescue. The "friend" had heard Fortescue had signed contracts with the Chinese, but they were demanding a majority stake in the company in return.
"You better tell your friend to sell his shares immediately," Mr He is claimed to have told Mr Xin. Chinese companies wanted control of Fortescue, Mr He said, and as the company was resisting "we will teach them a lesson". Mr Karkar said: "It seems the lesson took the form of the interview in [The Australian Financial Review]". In that March 2005 report which prompted the Australian Securities and Investments Commission investigation, the Chinese said there were no binding agreements with Fortescue and that they were not prepared to build and finance the project.
A key ASIC witness, a former Fortescue head of marketing, Philip Kirchlechner, attended some meetings between the company and the Chinese entities in 2004 when the agreements were being negotiated. Mr Kirchlechner, who said he resigned from Fortescue after Mr Forrest reneged on a promise to give him shares in the company, provided documents to ASIC outlining discussions where the Chinese sought an equity stake.
Cross-examined by Mr Karkar, he did not remember if he had seen the draft of a media release in August 2004 in which Fortescue claimed to have a "binding contract" with a Chinese group to build a rail line from the mine to Port Hedland. That was the first of several documents in which the term was used.
Mr Kirchlechner said:
SORRY, BUT SCIENCE IS NEVER SETTLED

The university administration responded by not renewing Galileo's contract, thus ridding themselves of a troublemaker who challenged the accepted consensus. Galileo is better remembered today for clashing with the Catholic Church over the issue of whether or not the Earth was at the centre of the universe. An Earth-centred cosmology was first proposed by the Greek philosopher Eudoxus in the fourth century B.C.
When Galileo insisted that the Earth revolved around the sun, he was castigated by the church for advocating an idea that was not only heretical, but also "foolish and absurd in philosophy." Late in the seventeenth century, Isaac Newton demonstrated definitively that Aristotle's physics were incorrect. He proposed the Law of Universal Gravitation, and explained how the planets move around the sun in elliptical orbits.
Near the beginning of the nineteenth century, the Neptunian School of geology taught that all rocks had formed by crystallisation from a now-vanished universal ocean. Although the evidence falsifying this theory was both plain and abundant, Neptunists interpreted every observation as supportive of their hypothesis.
The End Of History?
FURTHER STEPS TOWARDS THE MONOPOLY STATE
What is, overall, a good explanation of how private banks have the power to create the nations credit-money, the proposal put forward by John Carter in The Land, (NSW 9/4/2009) that 'nationalisation of the banks is the answer, is quite alarming. It must be asked is Mr. Carter simply lacking in understanding and is genuinely na 've, or is he, in reality, a mouthpiece for the banks, or, what about a socialist wolf in sheep 's farm-clothing?
Older readers will remember, the Australian League of Rights came into formal existence in 1946 after social crediters had battled the Labor centralist Dr. Vere Evatt and his moves to nationalise the private banks. Eric Butler had pointed out all those years ago in a "State Monopoly of Credit" - as outlined in Karl Marx's famous "ten steps" in the Communist Manifesto, this proposal was an even worse alternative to the world-wide power of private banking.
By 1948 Eric Butler and the League of Rights supporters, were involved in the battle to forestall Chifley's attempts to nationalise the banks. Eric had written a series of brilliant articles, 'Steps Towards the Monopoly State which were being published weekly by an old established Melbourne newspaper, The Argus. As a description of the threat to Australia's freedom by centralised power from a variety of sources - revolutionary, bureaucratic and corporate - his material was prescient. Before his final articles appeared, The Argus had changed hands and Eric's message was stopped in its tracks. They are all currently available in booklet form.
The Real Objective?
Camouflaging the Real Objective:
At the time Eric Butler insisted: 'Bank nationalisation is a direct assault upon the Federal Constitution; it is merely a means to an end and not an end in itself.
Despite John Carter 's present admiration for Labor 's Ben Chifley, Eric Butler saw through the media propaganda. Mr. Chifley was persistently publicised as a 'financial expert ', but it was obvious that his argument that bank nationalisation was necessary, supposedly to prevent any policy of credit restriction by the trading banks, was merely camouflaging the real objective.
As proved in practice in Russia under a Socialist regime, a "planned economy" cannot be allowed to be jeopardised by any individual having the power to contract out of the centrally imposed plans if he doesn't like them.
MAGIC CREDIT POISONING ECONOMY
Source: John Carter in The Land (NSW) 9/4/2009.
The credit crunch is lifting the lid off the magic box of credit creation: As JK Galbraith wrote: "The process by which banks create money is so simple that the mind is repelled."
This time, the Godlike reputation of bank directors, chief executive officers and the like have gone up in a cloud of incompetence and greed. If they had understood their job they wouldn't have allowed their banks to go into fields that have now sunk their shareholders and the real economy.
Sick - but that was only the beginning:
Australia fared worse in the last Depression than most countries. The Bank of England insisted on loan repayments by Australia. Jack Lang told them they would have to wait. He was right, but was sacked by the English establishment's representative - the State Governor, Sir Phillip Game.
China may give them the lesson they need this time:
A TALE OF TWO STATUES
Source: David Flint 's Opinion Column, 16/3/09:
This was only one example of leading republicans making ludicrous claims against the Australian Crown and the benefits of moving to a politicians republic. Grassby was a prominent campaigner in the years leading up to the 1999 referendum. The Australian people saw through these claims.
Paul Sheehan recently wrote in The Sydney Morning Herald about a sequel to the TV 'Underbelly series on organised crime. The sequel is called 'Underbelly: A Tale Of Two Cities '. He says this reflects a real-life tapestry of corruption which could be called "A Tale Of Two Statues".
The statue in Griffith was paid for by the local Rotary Club and commemorates the life and death of Donald Mackay, who resisted the Calabrian mafia who were operating around the town of Griffith. 'For his anti-drugs campaign, Mackay was murdered by Robert Trimbole, Mr. Sheehan states. This was done by an 'enforcer for the Federated Ship Painters and Dockers Union. 'It was then given extensive political cover by a Labor politician, Al Grassby, he adds.
He points out that a taxpayer funded $72,000 statue of Grassby as "father of multiculturalism" was recently placed in Canberra 's Civic Centre by the ACT Government at a time when evidence of Grassby's corruption, mafia links and treachery was widely known.
Mr Sheehan writes that this was multiculturalism, Grassby-style: 'His career was littered with race-based politics, he says. 'He was a hardened liar who led a double life, both in public and private. And the ACT Labor Government put up a statue in his honour. When Donald Mackay's four children complained about this public insult, they were brushed aside.
We are still waiting for the republican movement to admit the silly claims made by Grassby and other republicans were untrue and that they knew they were untrue at the time. Perhaps they could join in the denunciation of the ACT Government 's gratuitous insult to the memory of the late Donald Mackay.
