On Target

17 September 2004. Thought for the Week:

If people wore colours according to their deeds,
You would see men in highest places wearing black,
And lots of unsung heroes who never made a name,
Would be going round with gold upon their backs.

If people were like flowers, imagine what you'd see,
Thorns in highest places, where the roses ought to be,
And down among the hedgerows, where the grasses grow so tall,
You will find the sweetest roses of them all.

FURTHER NEWS FROM MADAGASCAR

by Diane Boucher
Editor's note: Readers will remember we reported on the Madagascar villagers founding their own Social Credit Bank (Vol.40 No.35) but queried why they "brought all their belongings to create a fund to start the new bank". Diane Boucher has answered that query.
"What the villagers did with their belongings was to put a monetary value on them. So the accountant of the Bank was able to write these values to the account of each member of the Social Credit Bank.
The credit (positive side) transaction and debit (negative side) transaction (I'm not sure if credit and debit are the right words in English) are simply written in a small accounting booklet for each member and in the great book of the accountant during each sale.
When somebody needs credits to make products, the accountant writes the new credits in the producer's account. So the new credits are created with the new production. Without any interest."
Comment: Nor have the created accountancy figures been claimed by the accountant as his own - to be repaid, with interest to him! He can quite justly claim a fee for the service he provides to the villagers, but he cannot claim the figures in his great book belong to him, and not only does he want them back, he wants interest on them as well!
Diane continues: "The credits are cancelled when the products are sold, that is to say they are cancelled with the consumption of the products.
Periodically, new credits are written to the accounts of every member of the Social Credit Bank in the measure where there is social progress. It is the [local] dividend. It is the same way of functioning as in the story of the five islanders.
The discount is not implemented yet, because this economy is very simple. When it will become complex enough to have producers of intermediate goods or equipment goods, it will be necessary to implement the discount to consumers with compensation to the producers."

THE TREMENDOUS POTENTIAL ABUNDANCE

In the early 1900s Clifford Hugh Douglas saw:
"The outstanding facts so far as Western Europe and the United States of America are concerned, are first of all this tremendous potential abundance, and, secondly, that this abundance is obtained by a decreasing amount of what we call employment.
One of my colleagues in Great Britain, working along quite separate lines, and using somewhat different data, arrived at the same conclusion that I did and that was the result which was confirmed by the more responsible side of what is called the Technocracy Movement in the United States which is also studying the matter, and the three groups came to the same conclusion, which amounted to this:
It was obvious so far as Great Britain was concerned, that by 1942, if there was no tremendous jump forward in invention or innovation; if matters actually took their normal course, it would be possible to supply all the goods and services that Great Britain could possibly use for a very much higher standard of living than anything we have conceived up to the present, with an unemployed population of over 8,000,000 in Great Britain."

Now, try to graft a policy of something for nothing (Grace) onto that philosophy which insists: "He who does not work will not eat! Whether the work is needed or not!"
"Why," say our masters, "if we don't have the masses ground-down with work and more work, and paying taxes and more taxes, some might have some leisure time, some time to think for themselves; and that would never do! They might even wake up to the scam we are perpetuating!"
Some might even pose the question: How is it possible for a world which is suffering from over-production to be in such economic distress?

In an article republished in the September edition of The New Times Survey, ("Economics is not the Central Problem") the writer helps us to see the wood and the trees: "It is not a matter of precedence, of what comes first in considering spiritual and material values. The real issue is Truth applied to both worlds! The real issue is that of Truth itself, which belongs to and unites both spheres, making flesh and spirit one, informing the whole of life!"

In last week's On Target Anthony Cooney helped us to get a better grip on the importance of applied Christian Faith by not only distinguishing between the spiritual and temporal in his explanation of 'faith' and 'works' in relation to the social credit of a community, but also in seeing the absolute importance of marrying the two in our application of the Faith. He wrote: Sufficiency is the message of the Gospels-
"Behold the lilies of the field, they sow not, neither do they spin" - applied by the Honest Money and Just Prices of Social Credit, (the National Dividend and National Discount.)
"Sufficiency" according to the social credit definition "can be measured in terms of human satisfaction."
The "work ethic" which is the antithesis of Social Credit, whether it be called "Protestant," "Catholic" or "Marxist," is that which demands MORE, irrespective of human satisfaction.

The American social crediter Michael Lane wrote in response to Cooney's article:
This piece by Tony is so deep! Good Works sanctify a man's moral character; the "work ethic" of the Middle Ages was Sufficiency; Sufficiency can be measured in terms of human satisfaction; the purpose of the National Dividend is to decentralise credit to allow the individual to express his satisfaction or dissatisfaction. Beautiful!
The 'B' element in prices is Dead Work… The purpose of the National Dividend is to cancel out from prices the detritus of the costs of 'dead labour'.
I'd put this a little differently: I'd say "Past Work" and "Past Labour" or "the Work of the Dead" and "the labour of the dead."
The people are dead, many of them. The labour is done, the cost is paid. But something remains, the fruitful and creative aspect of their work, the immortal part, which never dies, which keeps on producing for us.
The marvel of the Cultural Heritage. We should be done with it as far as costs go, but we can enjoy its fruits forever."


PRINCIPLE - FIXED FOR ALL TIME

It is my experience people grasp truth in their own individual ways and one example which works for one person doesn't necessarily work for another. The following excerpt from Sir Charles Leonard Woolley's "The Sumerians" is offered as another example of 'the cultural heritage' quite a number of following civilisations 'inherited'.
Sir Charles describes the Sumerians' achievements in social organisation, system of law and concepts of justice, education, the arts and crafts and the working of metals -- long before the Greeks or the Egyptians, or even the Babylonians entered on to the stage of world history.
Of their building techniques he had this to say:

"The arch was a commonplace in architecture, the doorways (of houses) were arched with bricks set in true voussoir fashion… What is true of the arch is true also of the dome and the vault. Here, where the principle once invented is fixed for all time… the sequence is easier to follow than in the more fluid arts of design…"

That is why Michael Lane can say: "The marvel of the Cultural Heritage (is) we should be done with it as far as costs go, but we can enjoy its fruits forever."
We should be able to enjoy the fruits of our cultural inheritance, in all fields of activities, from past generations. We don't have to reinvent the wheel. The benefits -- of the knowledge of how to do this and how to do that -- belong to all the community. It is the cultural inheritance of each and every one of us.
"(The purpose of the) National Dividend: The 'B' element in prices is Dead Work… The purpose of the National Dividend is to cancel out from prices the detritus of the costs of 'dead labour'."

Editor's note: As anyone who runs a business would know, payments in a production system are divided into two groups: The 'B' elements are all the payments made during the production process, including wages, salaries and dividends, which have to be recovered in prices in the market place -- or the business goes bankrupt. The wages, salaries and dividends (the "A" payments) represent the purchasing power of the community.


ONLY ONE PARTY - THE FINANCE PARTY

One man who has grasped the truth is Ron Fischer of Ballarat, Vic. He wrote to the Ballarat Courier, 3rd September, 2004.
"Let's be thankful that the election has been called. At least it will put an end to the tedious speculation in the media. It matters little who occupies the Lodge after October 9. No side is going to challenge the money power.
It was remarked some seventy years ago during the Great Depression, "There is only one party - the finance party". Against that party governments are impotent.
The result of the election will hinge on which party promises the most goodies to the most marginal seats. When the dust settles hang on for the repudiation.
The economic rules that dictate what governments can do served the purpose when horsepower came on four legs, when the greatest cost of producing any thing was the labour. The wages were there to buy the final product.
Those rules are totally inadequate today. A major cost is in the debt created to buy the machinery and technology that reduces the wage bill. The difference between the total cost of production and the purchasing power to distribute that production is directed to exports. All taxation aggravates the difference.
As one country's exports are another's imports it must surely be obvious that exporting is not going to solve the problem of insufficient cash globally."

PHILLIP BENWELL TO PETER COSTELLO

"So Peter Costello says that "the symbols of Australia at the moment are fraying". If they are indeed fraying, it is only because politicians like him are working ceaselessly to destroy the very Constitution they are sworn to protect through their Oath of Allegiance to The Crown."

PASSPORT TO TERROR

by Justin Raimondo antiwar.com:
Israel's Underground Passport Factory - A Threat To National Security:

While the following is written from an American perspective Australians would also share the same concerns
"In the world of international terrorism, both privatised and state-sponsored, passports and other identity papers are the coin of the realm. Terrorists targeting America are particularly eager to get their hot little hands on Canadian and New Zealand passports, for a number of reasons, most especially because the holders don't need visas across a wide swathe of the globe, including the United States.
Now, as the orange alerts have us wondering when and where the next terrorist strike on American soil will occur, and U.S., British, and Pakistani agents bust up an important Al Qaeda operation, discovering how the terrorists procure travel documents provides important clues as to how they operate - and with whose complicity.
In April I wrote about the "passport farm" Israeli agents set up in New Zealand, in which four employees of the Mossad, Israel's intelligence agency, were caught trying to obtain a New Zealand passport in the name of a housebound paraplegic.
Uriel Kelman and Eli Cara were arrested, in a much-publicized case, and jailed, while Prime Minister Helen Clark openly raged against what was undoubtedly an Israeli intelligence operation. Since then there have been a few rather interesting, albeit ominous, developments.
It turns out that the ringleader, Ze'ev William Barkan, who fled before New Zealand security could nab him, was and presumably still is a member of the Israeli diplomatic corps, having served at embassies in Vienna and Brussels. He was last seen in North Korea, travelling with a Canadian passport as "Kevin Hunter," where he turned up in Pyongyang as a "consultant" brought on to help the North Korean government build a "security fence" in order to keep their people in. Now that the East Germans have wound up in history's dustbin, the Israelis are the current experts in the field.

Barkan is a man of many skills, and one of them, according to an aid worker cited by the Sydney Morning Herald, is this:
"'He goes to Laos, Cambodia, Burma and Thailand and deals with gangs who rob tourists of their valuables and passports,' the aid worker said. 'Barkan is mostly interested in passports and there have been a number of Australian passports.' Intelligence analysts in New Zealand believe Barkan, a former navy diver in the Israeli Defence Force, was trying to secure a 'clean' passport for use in a sensitive Israeli undercover operation in the region, less risky than a forged passport."
The inner workings of Barkan's New Zealand operation were exposed when the fourth suspect in the case, Tony Resnick, was outed. Mr. Resnick, 35, who fled the day after the arrest of Kelman and Caras, was a paramedic with the St. John Ambulance in Auckland before taking a job as a healthcare lecturer at the Auckland University of Technology. He had previously worked as a paramedic in Israel, and, in his capacity as a paramedic in New Zealand, had possibly visited the home of the targeted paraplegic.
Using Resnick's connections to wheelchair-bound and otherwise incapacitated New Zealanders, Barkan's cabal targeted people who would not likely be travelling abroad, and set up a passport farm by stealing their identities. The Israelis were caught by a suspicious official, who checked their references and laid a trap. But the question that is no doubt haunting the government of New Zealand is how many times did they succeed before they were caught - and to what purpose was Israel culling travel documents?
The answer to this last question is discernible if we look at Israel's record in this regard. The botched assassination of Hamas leader Khaled Mashaal in Jordan caught the Israelis with their pants down on the passport issue: the assassins were outfitted with Canadian travel documents. This incident no doubt came to mind as New Zealand government officials contemplated the meaning and purpose of Israel's underground passport factory.

Speaking of Canada, the story of the Mossad's New Zealand hijinks took a Canadian twist when that country's foreign ministry announced that it was investigating the matter of Barkan's passport.
New Zealand's foreign minister, Phil Goff, replied: "I have read with interest the Canadians are following up allegations he may have travelled at some point on a stolen Canadian passport. When he came to New Zealand my understanding was he was travelling on a U.S. passport. Clearly there would be co-operation between police forces in different countries to try to get to the bottom of these things."
So there's an American twist, too. Barkan reportedly had an American accent, and said he came from Washington, D.C., where his family supposedly was in the "windows and doors" business. The Sydney Morning Herald confirms his Washington residence, and says Barkan grew up there as Zev Bruckenstein, where his father was director of religious studies at a synagogue…
Maybe next time, the terror masters should seek out Ze'ev Barkan: I'm sure he can give them a real deal on a New Zealand passport - or perhaps even a Canadian one, in which case they'll have no trouble coming in from our equally porous northern border.
But wait: doesn't this posit a relationship of some sort - possibly falling somewhere between active and passive collaboration - involving the Mossad with the terrorists who seek our doom? Don't be too surprised, because it wouldn't be the first time …."


OPEN LETTER TO NSW COMMISSIONER OF POLICE

The following open letter by Mr. Stewart K. Beattie of 32 Brunskill Road, Lake Albert, Wagga Wagga, NSW was sent to us via email. Mr. Beattie is calling for a Coronial Inquiry into the deaths of the New South Wales persons who died at Port Arthur in 1996. The League has previously provided platforms for Wendy Scurr and David McGregor who are also seeking a Coronial Inquiry into the massacre in Tasmania. One would have thought in the aftermath of such a horrendous mass-murder of Australian citizens, a coronial inquiry would have been conducted as a matter of course. The League publishes the letter in the public interest.

An open letter to: Mr Ken Moroney, The Commissioner New South Wales Police Service, 1424 College Street, Darlinghurst, NSW, 2010. September 7, 2004
RE: PORT ARTHUR VIDEO TAPE
Dear Mr Commissioner,
In late March of 2004, I received anonymously through the post, two (2) individual, unlabeled video tapes in total, delivered consecutively, which upon my viewing, I found contained several sections, all of which indicated to me the tape had been produced by the Tasmania Police. The second of these two video tapes was of such poor quality it would not run properly, and hence at the time, I disabled the cassette and disposed of it in the regular garbage pick-up.
The subject matter contained on my video tape I currently possess, has been the subject of much media attention in recent days. The Daily Advertiser newspaper of Thursday last, 2 September, 2004, and at pp.1-2, there is published an article - "Massacre On Tape" by Paul Enever. In that article I was the person referred to as having received two (2) such tapes. When your crime manager for this jurisdiction, acting Inspector Rod Smith, was approached by The Daily Advertiser, he was quoted as suggesting that if I have evidence that hasn't been disclosed to the Tasmania coroner, I should "present it to the relevant authorities."
After considering that advice, I now am complying. However, I have studied very carefully the content, especially of the last track, which demonstrates clearly what I seriously consider to be disturbing evidence of probable serious crimes having been committed which directly effect certain people of the State of New South Wales, who died there in the area known as Port Arthur on or about the 28th April, 1996.
I have therefore today, Wednesday the eighth day of September 2004, handed to a Police Officer of the New South Wales Police, at my home, the sole video tape copy in my possession. As I have already stated publicly, I have not made copies of this video tape. Also I now formally request your agent, the aforementioned Police Officer, on your behalf to receive this video, and forward it with all due care and haste to you, so that you can hold this tape as evidence in safe keeping, in a manner that shall protect the quality of the sound and vision of the tape, until such time as a formerly constituted open coronial inquisition can be held in New South Wales to inquire into all relevant matters surrounding the deaths of the six, persons then residing in the State of New South Wales, listed as follows:-
Zoe Anne Hall, 28 yrs, then of Kangaroo Point, Glenn Roy Pears, 35 yrs, then of Sydney, Russell James "Jim" Pollard, 72 yrs, then of Brunswick Heads, Mr Tony Kistan, 51 yrs, then of Summerhill, Mr Robert Salzmann, 58 yrs, then of Ocean Shores, Helene Salzmann, 50 yrs, then of Ocean Shores.
There has not been a coronial inquest conducted in the State of Tasmania into the deaths of any of the 35 people who died in the area of Port Arthur in the massacre that occurred there on the 28-29th April 1996. Hence I am formally asking that this unacceptable situation now be addressed for those 6 deceased persons I mention above.
Also, for the past six years, I have been engaged in investigating, researching, speaking publicly of my findings, and writing about the Port Arthur massacre and associated events. As a result of these activates, I now formally raise the following questions that I require answers to: -
Since there has never been a coronial inquiry, into the deaths of the six (6) persons all then resident in the State of New South Wales, is there any reason why an open, coronial inquiry into their deaths cannot be held in New South Wales?
Documented evidence show the New South Wales Forensic Police were given the duty of covering the Broad Arrow Café. The Forensic Sketch Plan that was presented to the Hobart Supreme Court was lacking in certain detail one of which was the presence of at least one ·308W spent cartridge case as is shown on the Tasmania Police Training Video. Were the New South Wales Police remiss in detailing such vital evidence, or was the Forensic Sketch compiled by the New South Wales Police altered after it was handed over to the Tasmania Police.
This altering of evidence is a felony, and the question now is, which Police Force was responsible for misleading the Supreme Court of Tasmanian, and was there a conspiracy between the two State Police Forces to mislead the Supreme Court?
In his report regarding the fire exit door to the Broad Arrow Café, the then DPP, Mr Damian Bugg QC, states that the Port Arthur Historic Site employee who was nailing all the doors and windows shut, with the assistance of a forensic policeman, tested the door lock, and found it to be inoperative. The questions are; why did the New South Wales Police permit the interference with a murder scene of the acts of nailing the particular door which was involved with the death of about six persons? Why did the New South Wales Police not make any report into the matter of the fire exit door that couldn't be opened? And was this particular door nailed shut prior to the arrival of the New South Wales forensic Team?
There is a large amount of carpet damage evident within the area of the Broad Arrow Café, near the Fire Exit Door, that appears to have been caused by bullets having been fired from a high powered rifle. None of this damage was listed within the New South Wales Police Forensic Sketch. Again which Police Force was responsible for this information being withheld from the Tasmania Supreme Court?
In the Court transcript the Tasmanian DPP, Mr Damian Bugg QC refers to live cartridge cases that were found within the Broad Arrow Café. The size of these live rounds has been stated by witnesses to have been of ·308W calibre. Why was this important evidence not listed or shown in the New South Wales Forensic Police Sketch Plan?
In the Tasmania Police Training Video there is shown a large blue sports bag, which appears rather empty, save for a white jumper, but according to several witnesses who saw the gunman carrying this bag, the bag appeared to be very heavy. What happened to the very heavy contents of this bag, bearing in mind that an AR15 is not that heavy.
Beside the same blue sports bag and resting on the table, there was a tray with a soft drink can on it and other food items. This tray and its contents match those witnesses state they saw the gunman carry, and drink from. What happened to this empirical evidence that was under the control of the New South Wales Police Forensic Team? Who permitted this experiential evidence to be lost?
Also the Tasmania Police training video shows clearly beside the bag and the food tray on the same table, there is resting a large, all black video camera, with an integral, external microphone visible. In the Court Document and at p.160 for instance the DPP's assistant Mr Perks talks about a "grey video camera bag". At p.71 the DPP Mr Damien Bugg QC, mentions the gunman carrying a video camera. However in a newspaper report by Chip Le Grand, in The Australian newspaper of 4 May 1996, it reports that Mr David Gunson had just been briefed to defend Martin Bryant. In that report, the first concern raised by Mr Gunson was the eyewitness reports of the gunman carrying a large video camera, which he is reported to have stated had not been recovered. Was this important empirical evidence lost, and if so was it loss due to any remiss on the part of New South Wales police, or Tasmania police?
In relation yet again to the sports bag left inside the Broad Arrow Café: We have evidence that a bag was left inside the café but we also have five witness statements saying that the gunman left the Broad Arrow Café carrying a bag, and then placing the bag into the boot of the Volvo. The James Balasko video, shows the gunman picking up the bag he departed the Café with, and placing the carry strap on his shoulder. Can the New South Wales Police Forensic team give us a proper explanation of why two bags were used by the gunman at the Port Arthur Massacre?
In relation to the crime scene on Jetty Road: The Tasmania Police Training Video shows somebody pick up the arm of the eldest Mikac child, and display a ·223Rem fired cartridge case. When considering the manner in which this child was murdered, and the firearm alleged to have been employed, there is no way that a fired cartridge case could end up under the body of this victim. The question is who picked up the fired cartridge case, thus interfering with the evidence at a major crime scene and then placed it under the body of the child? How did the person picking up the arm of the murdered child know that the fired cartridge case was there at that instance?
In the boot of the yellow Volvo sedan allegedly abandoned by the gunman at the tollbooth of the Port Arthur Historic Site, we are shown a fired cartridge case of ·223Rem calibre, and the Daewoo shotgun, and what was later described as hand drawn cardboard targets. However the Daewoo is shown sitting on top of a striped blouse or material, in a very neat arrangement, and the targets are placed neatly at the back of the boot. Now considering that the Volvo has completed various driving manoeuvres, just how were the targets able to remain in a neat position at the rear of the boot? Who placed the blouse under the shotgun to better illustrate that firearm?
Again with the Volvo sedan as shown in the Tasmania Police Training Video, you can see where a person's hand suddenly comes from within the back seat area of the Volvo and clasps the rear right window of the Volvo demonstrating that there was a person in that compartment of the Volvo. We are told by the Coroner that when he viewed the Volvo there were several petrol containers therein. The Coroner apparently didn't see the box of ammunition in the Volvo at Port Arthur, the policeman inside the rear passenger compartment wasn't impeded in any manner by a box of bullets, or at least one container of petrol, and the photographer certainly didn't take any photographs of that major piece of evidence until the Volvo was placed under police guard at Police Headquarters in Hobart. Would the New South Wales Police consider the act of embellishing evidence an ethical practice? Would the New South Wales Police consider such acts of interfering with evidence as perverting the course of justice?
Lastly we have the Tasmania Police Superintendent, Bob Fielding state that he made the right decision in forcing the gunman to come to us. Considering that the only way in which the gunman vacated Seascape Cottage, was that that building was set on fire, then we can only conclude that Seascape Cottage was set on fire by the Tasmania Police under the command of Superintendent Fielding. In other words, Fielding has confessed to crimes including Arson and the destruction of evidence. Of course there is also the numerous charges of perverting the course of justice that must be levelled against numerous members of the Tasmania Police, and one must also consider the involvement of the New South Wales police within these matters.
Sir, the matters I have raised with you here, are I believe of the gravest nature possible. I do not take such steps lightly. In raising these grave questions, I also realize that once raised, I could well be the target of retribution by those persons who may subsequently be found responsible for these unlawful acts. I therefore request that the New South Wales Police Service afford my family and I, due care and consideration for our continued well-being.
I do expect, that you will give all of the matters I raise your immediate consideration and attention. I also ask you to note, that as this correspondence is an open letter, I will today, simultaneously with it being served on your Police Officer, be furnishing all major news media, and Daryl Maguire MP, Member for Wagga, with a copy of my letter.
I await your reply at your earliest convenience, and until then,
I Remain, Yours Faithfully, Stewart K. Beattie.
