On Target

22 October 2004. Thought for the Week: "The good person out of the good treasure of the heart produces good, and the evil person out of evil treasure produces evil; for it is out of the abundance of the heart that the mouth speaks."
Gospel of Luke 6:45

'MORE OF THE SAME' TO COME - AS PLANNED

by Phillip Butler
Buoyed up by their win, the Liberals and their 'little mates' will claim to have a mandate not only to further centralise power and control over us and betray what is left of our national sovereignty, but to drag us into further wars-already planned some years ago by their U.S.-Israeli Neo-con Zionist 'friends'. All signs point to the next war of aggression being waged against Iran.
(It has been suggested Israel will launch the attack against Iran and the U.S. will stay on the sidelines supplying the fire-power and back up. We have heard the U.S. made a recent delivery of 300 'cluster' bombs to Israel.)
How sad to see the Australian elector, so brain-washed he doesn't realise he was being bribed with his own taxes, and so conditioned, he voted in a knee-jerk response to the party's fear-mongering 'doctors of spin'.
The sell-off of our few remaining national utilities, such as Telstra, is of course already planned by the Howard regime, and there are hints of interest rate rises in the foreseeable future. Hold on for a rocky ride.


FOR THOSE WHO HAVE 'EYES TO SEE'

by Betty Luks
One of our newer readers has expressed his frustration in coming to grips with the article in last week's On Target Vol.40, No.40.
"The Left the Right and the Truth".
He writes: "I am having trouble understanding why you would use a definition of left and right which only makes sense in the original (& scarcely used) French definition of the scale. Modern readers might be confused with this (I was, at least. I'm a novice - a significant element in your target audience). Therefore, if you want to use the scale this way, wouldn't it be diligent to explain/qualify your use of terms - especially in this case of which the opposite is the common/modern interpretation?
Any scale, of course, is neither right or wrong, it's just a simplified method of understanding the spectrum, but to use it the way you have, certainly needs qualification within the text so as not to confuse us 'less educated' in these matters.
Incidentally, it seems to me that the French scale was more to do with distinguishing between the Aristocracy and the commoners, rather than Anarchy vs Totalitarian Government, resemblant though it may be. My point being - why give it prominence at the expense of communication?"

Reply: The importance of the correct use of words
Ah! The constant and continuing battle of communicating in a language which has been captured and corrupted by the revolutionary forces to use as a weapon of dialectical mass deception against us!
Let me give an example: A number of years ago I had a discussion with a state Labor minister who was also prominent within the Uniting Church hierarchy. As with most members of the Australian Labor Party, being in reality International Socialists, this fellow claimed identity with Jesus Christ because "He was the first communist". It is a claim which leaves many Christians confused because they have not thought through the issue.
It is recorded in the New Testament, Jesus and His original group "had all things in common". The early Christians in Jerusalem also "had all things in common", but the group eventually broke up when the Jewish widows were treated more favourably than the Greek widows. They had not reached some 'utopia' as they had imagined; what was not taken into account when dealing with human associations is the factor of the weakness of human nature.

'Utopian' Christians make this most serious mistake, by confusing and 'sanctifying' the revolutionary lie of 'common ownership'; meaning in effect, State bureaucratic control of resources. Christians have not distinguished the genuine 'community of goods' as practised in some religious orders under vows of poverty, celibacy and obedience from the revolutionary Marxist/Communist 'common ownership'.
I would think the vow of poverty was absolutely essential under such an arrangement; in fact history shows such an arrangement has never survived in the absence of those vows, or when they have been broken.

'Anti-language' a cover for doing the opposite
Many who think of themselves as 'conservatives' (and voted the Liberals into power at the federal election) identify 'Rightism' with traditional values of 'social justice': i.e., protecting the weak and encouraging the self-reliant, cannot see past Howard's façade of 'conservatism' or policies of the 'right'. It was a brilliant campaign strategy by Howard to publicly associate with the Family First Party during the election -- all the 'right' values being implied without that party having been put to the test.
"But this is not the Rightism of the revolution," writes Geoffrey Dobbs in "What is Social Credit?"-- "but (it is) that which is appealed to by its verbal propaganda, for the purpose of its stifling and betrayal. A mere matter of words? YES! And desperately important, as the correct use of words is. It is a fatal thing to accept the enemy's terms at face value, or to upgrade and idealise them; for that is exactly how the Devil operates. 'Anti-language', or 'the reverse technique in words', i.e., creating a verbal image as a cover for doing the opposite, is now a standard, indeed a necessary routine in party politics, since it automatically neutralises the main opposition."

Whilst Geoffrey was dealing with the UK, it is just the same in this land.
"Of course it had to be the party with the patriotic image which could get away with the betrayal of Britain's national sovereignty. If it had been done by declared international socialists and anti-patriots they would have been up against the whole patriotic feeling of the nation." Time and time again we see this happening in this country with the phoney "Labor vs Liberal" charade.
If it had been the International Socialists who handed Rhodesia over to the Marxist revolutionary Robert Mugabe, the outcry would have been ten times greater. But it was 'conservative' 'rightist' Malcolm Fraser, John Howard and the Liberal Coalition in this country, and the Carrington-Thatcher ('conservatives', 'rightists') in the UK, who betrayed the Rhodesian people, thus reducing the protests to impotence.

The 'Third' Way's new clothes
On the other hand, whilst once the verbal champions of 'the poor' and the 'exploited masses', the International Socialists in the Labor Party are having difficulty in presenting themselves in their new clothes as "The Third Way". Having been washed up on the banks of a stream of history after the exposure of 'the workers' paradise' of Soviet Communism and its eventual collapse, they are still trying to 'reinvent' their image.
(Tasmanian timber workers witnessed this first hand with the ruthless gamble of the Labor Party 'heavies' to sacrifice them to the Greens in return for votes in the major cities… But it didn't pay off! The sitting Labor politicians lost their seats instead!)

These political dinosaurs are attempting to link themselves back to the movement coming out of the guild socialism of the late 1800s early 1900s and the catholic Distributist movement which grew out of it, but they haven't got the new role quite right as yet.
In politics as in all aspects of national life, we must make a realistic analysis of not just what is said but what is done! As Dr. Dobbs tells us:
"This sort of realistic analysis, relating actual policy as expressed in deeds with the use made of words in relation to it, is commonly rejected by those who have swallowed the anti-language at face value, as 'cynical'; but though these people (e.g. the average patriotic Conservative voter) think of themselves as 'sincere', they lack integrity in so far as they refuse to face the 'deeds'.
If they did so, all the parties would have been forced to fit their policies to their words long ago, or else would have been left high and dry with a mere handful of supporters.

"Since the point seems so hard to make, let me put it with different emphasis. There is no 'happy mean' between running and walking to Hell, between Right and Left, Conservative and Labour (let alone Liberal or Social Democrat!); between monstrous borrowing to keep the economy going with massive handouts, and strangling it with monetary restriction; between Tory (Right) inflation and Labour (Left) inflation; between multinational financial monopolies and State-controlled national monopolies; or between the typical bum's rush of a Labour or Tory Government (but the Tories are worst) to give instant 'recognition' to any gang of Leftist murderers who seize bloody control of a country. Indeed, when one compares them, it is clear that the Right has done a more competent job of encouraging the World Revolution than the Left.

The Left/Right conflict is a divide-and-rule strategy
The Left/Right conflict is a divide-and-rule strategy, and it is remarkable how closely it has succeeded in splitting the population down the middle, so that a 'swing' of only a few per cent can change governments. The two sides are at one on their evil policy, they differ only on the truth, which they divide between them and so render (Truth) impotent.

INDIVIDUAL LIBERTY AND THE PART OF THE STATE
For many the problem is solved by sacrificing one of these elements: either authority, as the anarchists; or liberty, as the partisans of permanent dictatorship.
LIBERTY AND AUTHORITY AT THE SAME TIME
The Church knows very well, on the one hand, that liberty is not only one of the most important privileges of man, but an inalienable right, and she is desirous of having that right not only respected, but also promoted. On the other hand, she sees that when different men freely associate themselves for a common purpose, they are unable to unite their efforts in harmonious co-operation without the help of a superior principle by which those efforts will be organized and unified, that is to say, without an authority.

The Church, therefore, speaks out for liberty and authority at the same time. She does not demand the sacrifice of either, but tries to conciliate and to bring them in harmonious accord with each other, by basing herself on the principle which the Pope calls that of the suppletive function of the State, a fundamental principle of social philosophy, unshaken and unchangeable. This means that in the first place, the greatest liberty possible -- legitimate liberty, of course -- must be left to private enterprises, individual or associated, and that State intervention must be resorted to only when such enterprises prove themselves unable to attain their particular ends, become detrimental to the general interests of all, or when the direct promotion of the common welfare is concerned.

This, in our opinion, is the real teaching set forth by the Encyclical Quadragesimo Anno
"None the less, just as it is wrong to withdraw from the individual and commit to the community at large what private enterprise and industry can accomplish so, too, it is an injustice, a grave evil, and a disturbance of right for a larger and higher organization to arrogate to itself functions which can be performed efficiently by smaller and lower bodies...."

Individual liberty protected
In this way the individual is assured of his liberty and protected against continual and embarrassing interference by the State, and the State in turn is delivered of almost unlimited and overwhelming responsibilities which do not rightly belong to it and which it cannot properly fulfil…"The State should leave to these smaller groups (and to the individuals) the settlement of less important business, by which its efforts would be exceedingly dispersed; it will thus carry out with greater freedom, power, and success its own tasks, because it alone can effectively accomplish these, directing, watching, stimulating, and restraining as circumstances suggest or necessity demands."

Socialism on the contrary
To the individual, first of all, must be left the greatest liberty and initiative possible. Then, in order to make up for his incapacities, appeal must be made in the first place to the family group, then to a group of greater dimension, professional or others, for everything that is beyond the power of domestic society; and finally, the State will be called upon to undertake the tasks which these larger organizations themselves are unable to accomplish, especially those directly concerning the common welfare. Thus each social group must supply the deficiencies of the inferior groups or those of the individual, to co-ordinate their respective activities while protecting their own initiative and liberty.
The proceedings of the Socialistic School, on the contrary, are exactly the reverse. It aims to build up society by beginning with the State, entrusting to the latter nearly all the power, functions, and wealth of the country and paying but a secondary attention to the individual's liberty, tastes, personal enterprises, and rights.

LIFESPAN CRISIS HITS AMERICANS

Researchers claim the latest figures on the decline in expected lifespan for Americans point to two key factors: obesity, and inequality of health care. Left unmentioned are not only two chemicals their food and drinks are dosed with, but also chemical farming, processed foods and vaccinations and a whole host of factors which also contribute to ill health and disease.

Aspartame and Monosodium Glutamate
Both of these chemicals induce cravings for more food. Aspartame, touted as a diet aid, actually creates cravings for carbohydrates, which is why food companies link diet sodas and snack foods in their sales promotions, i.e. a six-pack of diet soda and two giant bags of chips together for a special price. Monosodium glutamate also creates cravings for people to eat more food.

As you read the following 'orthodox' article, take into account the following
Not only the additives must be taken into account when considering a healthy diet, but also the matter of the 'poor and ill-fed' accepting responsibility for their own diets, health and well-being. They would be much healthier if their diets consisted of less processed 'dead foods' and more fresh and living foods. Also, implied in the article is the assumption orthodox medicine is the only acceptable form of treatment and that vaccines etc. are beneficial to us all. For all that, the article points to the fact Americans are going to have to change their eating habits and lifestyles if they want to live long and healthy.

Lifespan Crisis Hits Supersize America
Taken from The Observer, UK by Robin McKie, science editor. 19/9/04
Bloated, blue-collar Americans - gorged on diets of fries and burgers, but denied their share of US riches are bringing the nation's steady rise in life expectancy to a grinding halt. Twenty years ago, the US, the richest nation on the planet, led the world's longevity league. Today, American women rank only 19th, while males can manage only 28th place, alongside men from Brunei.
These startling figures are blamed by researchers on two key factors: obesity, and inequality of health care. A man born in a poor area of Washington can have a life expectancy that is 40 years less than a woman in a prosperous neighbourhood only a few blocks away, for example.
'A look at the Americans' health reveals astonishing inequalities in our society,' state Professor Lawrence Jacobs of Minnesota University and Professor James Morone, of Brown University, Rhode Island, in the journal American Prospect .

In another newly published paper, statisticians at Boston College reveal that in France, Japan and Switzerland, men and women aged 65 now live several years longer than they do in the US. Indeed, America only just scrapes above Mexico and most East European nations.

This decline is astonishing given America's wealth
Not only is it Earth's richest nation, it devotes more gross domestic product - 13 per cent - to health care than any other developed nation. Switzerland comes next with 10 per cent; Britain spends 7 per cent. As the Boston group - Alicia Munnell, Robert Hatch and James Lee - point out: 'The richer a country is, the more resources it can dedicate to education, medical and other goods and services associated with great longevity.' The result in every other developed country has been an unbroken rise in life expectancy since 1960.
But this formula no longer applies to America, where life expectancy's rise has slowed but not yet stopped, because resources are now so unevenly distributed. When the Boston College group compared men and women in America's top 10 per cent wage bracket with those in the bottom ten per cent, they found the former group earned 17 times more than the latter. In Japan, Switzerland and Norway, this ratio is only five-to-one.

Jacobs and Morone state
'Check-ups, screenings and vaccinations save lives, improve well-being, and are shockingly uneven [in America]. Well-insured people get assigned hospital beds; the uninsured get patched up and sent back to the streets.' For poor Americans, health service provision is little better than that in third world nations. 'People die younger in Harlem than in Bangladesh,' report Jacobs and Morone.
Consumption of alcohol, tobacco and food can also have a huge impact on life expectancy. The first two factors are not involved with America's longevity crisis. Smoking and drinking are modest compared with Europe. Food consumption is a different matter, however, for the US has experienced an explosion in obesity rates in the past 20 years. As a result, 34 per cent of all women in the US are obese compared with 4 per cent in Japan. For men, the figures are 28 and 2 per cent respectively.

'US obesity rates jumped in the 1980s and 1990s, and the vast majority of the population affected by obesity had not yet reached age 65 by 2000,' state the Boston group. 'As the large baby boom cohort begins to turn 65 in coming years, a stronger connection between obesity rates and life expectancy may emerge.' In other words, as the nation's middle-aged fatties reach retirement age, more and more will start to die out. Life expectancy in the US could then actually go into decline."


CONTINUING: WHAT A BOMBSHELL! PUTIN ACCUSES US AND UK

by Webster Griffin Tarpley, Washington DC, 14 September, 2004:
From INN World Report, http://inn.globalfreepress.com/article.php?storyid=793
In last week's edition of On Target the first half of the article finished with the following words:
"In 1999, Putin rode to power on a backlash against Chechen terror which he had in all probability staged himself - thus just doing a long-standing US-UK capability. The key point is that the Russian press is now openly denouncing London and Washington as centres for terrorist control. This can blow the lid off the 9-11 hoax." It continues:

"On Saturday, September 4, Putin had delivered a national television address to the Russian people on the Beslan tragedy, which had left more than 300 dead, over half of them children. The main thrust was that terrorism constitutes international proxy warfare against Russia. Among other things Putin said:
"In general, we need to admit that we did not fully understand the complexity and the dangers of the processes at work in our own country and in the world. In any case, we proved unable to react adequately. We showed ourselves to be weak, and the weak get beaten."
"Some people would like to tear from us a tasty morsel. Others are helping them. They are helping, reasoning that Russia still remains one of the world's major nuclear powers, and as such still represents a threat to them. And so they reason that this threat should be removed. Terrorism, of course, is just an instrument to achieve these gains."
"What we are dealing with, are not isolated acts intended to frighten us, not isolated terrorist attacks. What we are facing is direct intervention of international terror directed against Russia. This is a total, cruel and full-scale war that again and again is taking the lives of our fellow citizens." (Kremlin.ru, September 6, 2004)
Recruitment in London:
Around the time of 9/11, Putin had pointed to open recruitment of Chechen terrorists going on in London, telling a German interviewer:
"In London, there is a recruitment station for people wanting to join combat in Chechnya. Today -- not officially, but effectively in the open -- they are talking there about recruiting volunteers to go to Afghanistan." (Focus -- German weekly newsmagazine, September 2001) In addition, it is generally known in well-informed European circles that the leaders of the Chechen rebels were trained by the CIA, and that the Chechens were backed by US-sponsored anti-Russian fighters from Afghanistan. In recent months, US-UK backed Chechens have destroyed two Russian airliners and attacked a Moscow subway station, in addition to the school atrocity.
Some aspects of Putin's thinking were further explained by a press interview given by Aslambek Aslakhanov, the Chechen politician who is one of Putin's official advisors. A dispatch from RIA Novosti reported Aslakhanov's comments as follows:
"The terrorists who seized the school in Beslan, North Ossetia, took their orders from abroad. 'They were talking with people not from Russia, but from abroad. They were being directed,' said Aslambek Aslakhanov, advisor to the President of the Russian Federation. 'It is the desire of our "friends" - in quotation marks -- who have probably for more than a decade been carrying out enormous, titanic work, aimed at dismembering Russia. These people have worked very hard, and the fact that the financing comes from there and that they are the puppet masters, is also clear."
Aslakhanov, who was named by the terrorists as one of the people they were going to hold talks with, also told RIA Novosti that the bid for such "talks" was completely phony. He said that the hostage-takers were not Chechens. When he talked to them, by phone, in Chechen, they demanded that he talk Russian, and the ones he spoke with had the accents of other North Caucasus ethnic groups. (RIA Novosti, September 6, 2004)
"School seizure was planned in Washington and London":
The above headline is an even more explicit commentary by the Russian news agency KMNews.ru. This analysis blames the Beslan school massacre squarely on the U.S. and British intelligence agencies. The point of departure here is that Shamil Basayev, the brutal Chechen field commander, has been linked to the attack (something that Putin advisor Aslambek Aslakhanov yesterday said was known to the Russian FSB, successor of the KGB).
Michel Chossudovsky pointed out some years back, the Chechen leaders Basayev and Al Khattab were trained in the CIA-run camps for Islamic fighters in Afghanistan.
In 1999, Putin rode to power on a backlash against Chechen terror which he had in all probability staged himself - thus just doing a long-standing US-UK capability. The key point is that the Russian press is now openly denouncing London and Washington as centres for terrorist control.

PEOPLE FOR A CORONIAL INQUIRY INTO PORT ARTHUR MASSACRE

The Tasmania Police Training Video linked to the Port Arthur massacre found at a rubbish dump has given rise to further questions about what really happened that dreadful day at Port Arthur. "Approximately 120 people attended a meeting Wednesday, 29th September to hear the latest revelations to the Port Arthur massacre. Guest Speaker was Mr. Andrew Macgregor, former Victoria Police Officer who has researched extensively circumstances surrounding this terrible tragedy.
Using the evidence of some eye-witnesses, examining events and comments from various sources and statements by police and other officials, Mr. Macgregor gave compelling evidence to suggest that Mr. Martin Bryant, the young man jailed for the crime, could in no way have committed the crimes attributed to him, and that it was rather a carefully planned operation involving agencies in and beyond Tasmania.
Some of the evidence was obtained from the Tasmania Police Training video-tape which found its way into public hands recently and has been the subject of media comment in recent weeks. So compelling was Mr. Macgregor's presentation that at the end of the meeting a motion was put and was unanimously agreed to by those in attendance.

The motion was:
I move that this assembly of Australian citizens from Tasmania and other States, in light of the evidence presented here tonight and on other occasions, demand that the Parliament of Tasmania obey the Law and cause a Coronial Inquiry to be held into the Murders at Port Arthur on Sunday April 28th, 1996.
Further: That this motion be presented to The Speaker of the Tasmania Parliament along with an outline of evidence for reasons why we do not accept the official story of the massacre.
That this material be copied to Members of all Australian Parliaments, the Media and to Australian Citizens by whatever means possible."
