THE WAR LORDS OF WASHINGTON
As we partake of the daily diet of carnage
and chaos around the world, served up to us via our television
screens, newspapers and/or radios, we need to remind ourselves
there is 'order and design' behind it all. Author and journalist
John Pilger explained the latest 'game plan' for us in the
New Statesman, 21st August 2004.
"Supremacy is the essence of Americanism; only the veil
changes or slips. In 1976, the Democrat Jimmy Carter announced
"a foreign policy that respects human rights." In
secret, he backed Indonesia's genocide in East Timor and established
the mujahedin in Afghanistan as a terrorist organisation designed
to overthrow the Soviet Union, and from which came the Taliban
and al-Qaeda. It was the liberal Carter, not Reagan, who laid
the ground for George W Bush."
The Blueprint for the new Imperialism
"In the past year, I have interviewed Carter's principal
foreign policy overlords Zbigniew Brzezinski, his national
security adviser, and James Schlesinger, his defence secretary.
No blueprint for the new imperialism is more respected than
Brzezinski's. Invested with biblical authority by the Bush
gang, his 1997 book The Grand Chessboard: American Primacy
and Its Geo-strategic Imperatives describes American priorities
as the economic subjugation of the Soviet Union and the control
of central Asia and the Middle East.
"His analysis says that "local wars" are merely
the beginning of a final conflict leading inexorably to world
domination by the US. 'To put it in a terminology that harkens
back to a more brutal age of ancient empires,' he writes,
'the three grand imperatives of imperial geo-strategy are
to prevent collusion and maintain security dependence among
the vassals, to keep tributaries pliant and protected, and
to keep the barbarians from coming together.'
"It may have been easy once to dismiss this as a message
from the lunar right. But Brzezinski is mainstream. His devoted
students include Madeleine Albright, who, as secretary of
state under Clinton, described the death of half a million
infants in Iraq during the US-led embargo as 'a price worth
paying,' and John Negroponte, the mastermind of American terror
in central America under Reagan who is currently 'ambassador'
James Rubin, who was Albright's enthusiastic apologist at
the State Department, is being considered as John Kerry's
national security adviser. He is also a Zionist; Israel's
role as a terror state is beyond discussion.
Cast an eye over the rest of the world
"As Iraq has crowded the front pages, American moves
into Africa have attracted little attention. Here, the Clinton
and Bush policies are seamless. In the 1990s, Clinton's African
Growth and Opportunity Act launched a new scramble for Africa.
Humanitarian bombers wonder why Bush and Blair have not attacked
Sudan and 'liberated' Darfur, or intervened in Zimbabwe or
The answer is found in the 'censored'
history of the world
(In the 1960s-70s there were other writers with a more
perceptive eye than Mr. Pilger, such as South African journalist
Ivor Benson. He witnessed the 'winds of change' taking place
on the continent of Africa and insisted it was always a white
hand in a black glove directing the 'revolutionary forces'.
The Zionist Factor
Benson records the role the Zionists played in the Rhodesian
drama in a book with the above title. Ivor Benson wrote:
"A significantly different version of the Rhodesian drama,
in which the Zionist role is explained at some length, is
presented in a book published in Zimbabwe, formerly Rhodesia
- Majuta by B.A. Kosmin, with the sub-title A History of the
Jewish Community in Zimbabwe. The author makes no secret of
the fact that in Rhodesia long before the unilateral declaration
of independence (UDI) the terms "Jew" and "Zionist"
were, as he puts it, "almost interchangeable". He
tells us that in 1967, when the Rhodesians were already feeling
the bite of UN-imposed economic sanctions, the President of
the Central African Zionist Organisation (CAZO), Mr A.E. Abrahamson,
led a delegation to Prime Minister Ian Smith "to inform
him of their planned manpower and financial aid to Israel",
a move which, he adds, "achieved the desired results".
In the 1930s, says Dr Kosmin, the
per capita monetary contribution of Rhodesian Jews to the
Zionist cause was the highest in the world, "a tradition
maintained into the 1970s" in spite of sanctions which
had virtually placed the country in a state of siege. Equally
disproportionate, it would seem, was the attention lavished
on Rhodesia, with its tiny Jewish population, by the world's
Zionist leaders: we read that visitors to the country included
Chaim Weizmann, Vladimir Jabotinsky, Nahum Sokolov, Moshe
Sharett, Nahum Goldmann, Norman Bentwich, Cecil Roth and,
in more recent time, Generals Moshe Dayan, Yigal Allon, Chaim
Hertzog and Ezer Weizmann.
Kosmin's book makes it clear that
a highly organised and powerfully united Rhodesian Zionist
community, which dominated the country's economic life, was
always totally opposed to independence as envisaged by the
ruling Rhodesian Front party, although frequently compelled
for reasons of strategy and tactics to occupy positions on
both sides of the battle line.
White Rhodesia is described by Kosmin
as a "Herrenvolk democracy" with political trends
"dangerous to Jews", among these dangerous trends
being "a greater and more exclusive British patriotism"
engendered by World War II, to be further enhanced when British
forces were drawn into a struggle with Irgun and other Zionist
terrorists in Palestine. In 1952, therefore, it was firmly
decided at the annual congress of the Jewish Board of Deputies
to urge Jews to become more actively involved in Rhodesian
"It was perhaps no coincidence", says Kosmin, "that
Jews returned to the Federal and Territorial Assemblies in
the 1953 elections were all actively identified with the community
and had experience of Jewish organisations".
Those who benefited from the sanctions
were those mainly responsible for it
"As events were to prove, economic sanctions greatly
strengthened the Jewish hold on Rhodesia's commerce and industry,
since inevitably the persons who benefited most from the sanctions-busting
operation were those mainly responsible for conducting it;
and those most vulnerable to sanctions were also most vulnerable
to campaigns of intimidation and pressure exerted by Black
nationalist revolutionaries inside the country.
The net result is that commerce and industry in the new Zimbabwe
are more than ever concentrated in the hands of the Jews,
with big companies powerful enough to be able to influence
the Black politicians, and strategically placed to share with
them the abundance of money coming into the country in the
form of low-interest loans and foreign aid grants...
The struggle of a predominantly British
White Rhodesian population to avoid being drawn into the internationalists'
New International Economic Order occupies only a small part
of Dr. Kosmin's rather indiscreet history, which traces the
role of the Jews since they entered the country before the
turn of the century, mostly as pedlars and cattle dealers,
to be joined later by numbers of "refugees" from
To continue John Pilger's article
"The answer is that they have no interest in human distress
and human rights, and are busy securing the same riches that
led to the European scramble in the late 19th century by the
traditional means of coercion and bribery, known as multilateralism.
The Congo and Zambia possess 50 per cent of world cobalt reserves;
98 per cent of the world's chrome reserves are in Zimbabwe
and South Africa. More importantly, there is oil and natural
gas in Africa from Nigeria to Angola, and in Higleig, south-west
Sudan. Under Clinton, the African Crisis Response Initiative
(Acri) was set up in secret. This has allowed the US to establish
'military assistance programmes' in Senegal, Uganda, Malawi,
Ghana, Benin, Algeria, Niger, Mali and Chad.
Acri is run by Colonel Nestor Pino-Marina, a Cuban exile who
took part in the 1961 Bay of Pigs landing and went on to be
a special forces officer in Vietnam and Laos, and who, under
Reagan, helped lead the Contra invasion of Nicaragua.
The pedigrees never change
"None of this is discussed in a presidential campaign
in which John Kerry strains to out-Bush Bush. The multi-lateralism
or 'muscular internationalism' that Kerry offers in contrast
to Bush's uni-lateralism is seen as hopeful by the terminally
naive; in truth, it beckons even greater dangers
Nato back in train under President Kerry, and the French and
Germans compliant, American ambitions will proceed without
the Napoleonic hindrances of the Bush gang.
Little of this appears even in the American papers worth reading.
The Washington Post's hand-wringing apology to its
readers on 14 August for not "pay[ing] enough attention
to voices raising questions about the war [against Iraq]"
has not interrupted its silence on the danger that the American
state presents to the world.
The 'pre-fascist state'
Bush's rating has risen in the polls to more than 50 per cent,
a level at this stage in the campaign at which no incumbent
has ever lost. The virtues of his 'plain speaking,' which
the entire media machine promoted four years ago 'Fox and
the Washington Post alike' are again credited. As in
the aftermath of the 11 September attacks, Americans are denied
a modicum of understanding of what Norman Mailer has called
'a pre-fascist climate.'The fears of the rest of us are of
Those defending their homeland described
as 'militants' or 'insurgents'
"The professional liberals on both sides of the Atlantic
have played a major part in this. The campaign against Michael
Moore's Fahrenheit 9/11 is indicative. The film is
not radical and makes no outlandish claims; what it does is
push past those guarding the boundaries of 'respectable' dissent.
That is why the public applauds it. It breaks the collusive
codes of journalism, which it shames. It allows people to
begin to deconstruct the nightly propaganda that passes for
news: in which 'a sovereign Iraqi government pursues democracy'
and those fighting in Najaf and Fallujah and Basra are always
'militants' and 'insurgents' or members of a 'private army,'
never nationalists defending their homeland and whose resistance
has probably forestalled attacks on Iran, Syria or North Korea.
The real debate is neither Bush nor Kerry, but the system
they exemplify; it is the decline of true democracy and the
rise of the American 'national security state' in Britain
and other countries claiming to be democracies, in which people
are sent to prison and the key thrown away and whose leaders
commit capital crimes in faraway places, unhindered, and then,
like the ruthless Blair, invite the thug they install to address
the Labour Party conference.
The real debate is the subjugation of national economies to
a system which divides humanity as never before and sustains
the deaths, every day, of 24,000 hungry people. The real debate
is the subversion of political language and of debate itself
and perhaps, in the end, our self-respect." (emphasis
AS THE IRANIANS SEE IT
Contrary to the 'spin-diet' Australians are fed through the
mainline media, America (and by Howard's support of the US
war of aggression in Iraq, also Australia) is not seen as
the great white knight astride her white-as-white charger
rescuing the Middle East from the evil rule of Saddam Hussein
and his WMD.
Who remembers the bilge we were fed at the war's commencement?
It seems aeons ago now as this terrible situation drags on
and we view Iraq's physical structures being wiped out of
existence and more and more Iraqis brutally blasted out of
existence. Interestingly, a little snippet appeared in the
Ballarat Courier, 14/10/04 presenting another viewpoint
from Iran's Tehran Times.
"At this critical juncture, Russia must clarify its position
on the regional crises, so that regional countries can begin
working for progress and reconstruction free of US interference.
Regional countries have always respected Russia, and therefore
Russia should make use of its potential and position to challenge
the US attempt to impose its hegemony over the region and
the plans to redraw the map of the Middle East in line with
the interests of the Zionists."
MEANWHILE THE 'LITTLE' PEOPLE TAKE
Although the Australian people
have voted for 'more of the same' by giving John Howard control
of the House of Representatives and possibly the Senate, their
problems are not going to disappear by the wave of a magic
wand. The following report from our State Director Lou Cook
of Numurkah Victoria could help to enlighten them.
"The advertisement in The Leader, Numurkah 29th
September 2004, page 8, paid for by Jeff Davy was one of the
best summing up of the financial problems facing Australia
that I have ever read.
"The questions posed must be understood and answered
by the voting public, only then will we see responsible representation
by our elected members. It is true that WE get the government
WE voted into power."
Have you ever considered the 'apparent' financial policy of
the elected government, regardless of party affiliations,
toward the people of Australia?
It is to make sure that the majority of the population never
become financially independent. This is achieved by excessive
taxation, regulation licences and fees and any other method
that a bureaucratic mind can conceive.
And why would this be so?
How else can you secure votes from an electorate that is financially
independent? This is an observation formed after taking an
interest in the political scene for over fifty years. I found
the way Howard and Latham competed for the votes of decent
Australians extremely disgusting as they spend taxpayers funds
which should never have been collected in the first place,
on proposals that may never be implemented, for a variety
of reasons only politicians can invent.
What has this to do with the people of Murray?
The representatives we elect to the House of Representatives
and the Senate could aid and abet a further erosion of our
independence in all manner of issues affecting our individual
freedom. The bottom line is that "access to money is
a licence to live", if you do not have adequate financial
resources to keep you in the basic necessities of life, then
your lot is likely to be a miserable existence and that is
why you need to understand "what is money and where does
it come from?" the pertinent questions posed by Mr Davy.
I find it difficult to understand why the minor parties don't
take up these issues but then it possibly suits them to be
involved just enough to get their snouts in the public trough.
OPEN LETTER TO DR SHARMAN STONE
Summed up, Mr Davy asked Liberal Sharon
Stone to answer the following questions.
· WHAT is the current rural debt?
· What is the current foreign debt?
· And where does money come from?
He went on to answer the questions and warned the people in
his electorate of the approaching storms, the effects of which
we are all going to feel. He reminded those:
smug self-centred people who think that the Keynesian
debt-financial system won't affect them. I'm sorry, it's already
affecting you and it affects you through higher local government
rates and levies, higher state government taxes and levies,
and higher federal government taxes, levies, rates and under
Keynesian debt-finance, governments will always have to raise
taxation for local, state and federal government to pay for
services, water, roads, hospitals, aged care, public transport.
Look at what we've lost in Numurkah and district over the
last 25 years:
"Court house, state rivers and water supply depot and
office, trains system to Melbourne, lands department, state
electricity system office and depot, grain elevators board
depot, State Bank, and last but not least, Numurkah Shire
Council - all of these were driven out by the one thing, Keynesian
We have to become more efficient.
"We've just become the highest taxed group of Australians
in Australia's history with a $4.6 billion budget surplus.
The average Australian worker now pays $6,500 a year in indirect
levies and taxes or works 96 days a year to pay tax. 99.9%
of the population doesn't know where money comes from.
They either don't know or don't care or are just plain too
stupid to understand.
Which one are you?"
CLIFFORD HUGH DOUGLAS AND SOCIAL
In a follow-up advertisement, Jeff Davy
used more of his own money to continue educating the readers
of the local paper, and while delighted that he took upon
himself such a task at his own expense, we thought the following
information taken from notes by Douglas' pupil, Professor
Geoffrey Dobbs, could be helpful to those who first come across
the subjects of banking, finance, money, purchasing power
and the production system.
"During WWI, consulting engineer Major C.H. Douglas was
sent to the Farnborough Aircraft Factory to sort out some
costing problems for the British Government. His attention
was drawn to the much faster rate at which the factory was
generating costs as compared with the rate at which it was
Could this be true of every factory or commercial business
Distributed purchasing power - wages salaries and dividends
He collected information from over 100 large businesses in
Great Britain, and found that, in every case except in businesses
heading for bankruptcy, the total costs always exceeded the
sums paid out in wages, salaries and dividends. It followed
that only a part of the final product could be distributed
through the incomes disbursed by its production, and moreover,
a diminishing part, as industrial processes lengthened and
became more complex and increased the ratio of overheads to
Unless this defect in monetary book-keeping were corrected
(which in his view was perfectly practicable) the distribution
of the remainder must depend increasingly on work in progress
on future products whether wanted or not (look at what the
industrialised nations are doing to their own environments
with the insatiable appetite for more and more production
financed by loan credit, export credits, sales below cost
leading to bankruptcies and centralisation of industrial power,
or by consumer borrowing.
Rapacious demand of continuous economic
Douglas insisted the end result of such a system was (predictably)
disastrous -- as national and international events are now
It is the dilemma between:
· Mass-poverty through unemployment and growing inflation,
debt and monopoly, with waste of human effort and the earth's
resources to maintain 'full employment'.
· And the rapacious demand of continuous economic 'growth'
(resulting in economic warfare between nations) leading inexorably
on towards military war (between nations).
"This original engineer's approach, which regarded the
monetary system much as Douglas, a former railway engineer,
had regarded the ticket system, as a mere book-keeping convenience
for the efficient distribution of the product, was completely
alien and unacceptable to the economic theorists of the day."
Mr Davey was right to point to the
warnings made by men such as Douglas
some time into the future, under ever increasing taxation,
ever increasing government debt, ever increasing personal
debt, ever increasing cost of production
not only would
there be a 'debt crisis', but it was inevitable that it would
get progressively worse to the point where society will slowly
collapse into a state of total chaos and suffering under the
extreme financial pressures'.
Mr. Davey noted:
'We are seeing the start of it now through a hospital system
that can't cope, where doctors and nurses are pushed to the
limit just to carry out every day chores, through the record
breakdown of marriages, increase in alcoholism and violence,
record bankruptcies, record suicides, youth included, record
homelessness, degradation of the environment and river systems.
Farmers have been pushed to use large volumes of irrigation
water to increase production just to remain viable. And who
now are about to have the rug pulled out from underneath them
if 1500gl of water is returned to the Murray River environmental
It is pointless to talk about sustainable agriculture and
sustainable environments when the production system is distorted
by an unsustainable banking and money system.
Sooner of later, even Dumb and Dumber will wake up to the
flaw in the money system. (Mr. Davey, methinks you are too
kind in believing Dumb and Dumber are simply ignorant of the
flaw in the money system
The reserve bank's own official figures once showed that there
was only $15.201 billion in currency in Australia, yet there
was $333.730 billion of credit (read debt
to the banks.
How can you pay off $333.730 billion of debt with $15.201billion
of money, I would like someone to tell me! Perhaps we could
ask the man responsible for monetary policy in Australia.
The treasurer, he seems to think he knows the answers to everything,
but I don't think he could answer that one.
For every $1 of credit, there is $22 of debt. How can you
pay that off?
Not only is it a mathematical impossibility to pay off debt,
it is also a physical impossibility
Australia's money supply has increased
$100 million dollars every 24 hours since the coalition government
gained office. And banks make $27 million profit every 24
hours. The banking and money system is nothing more than a
corrupt, contrived, immoral, unfair and unjust way of obtaining
Sooner or later, there is going to be a lot of angry people
around when they realise that they have lost their farm or
their business, or their home, or their family through the
breakdown of their marriage, but I guess that's nothing to
the people who could see no way out under the crippling burden
of debt but to take their lives and leave behind their families
to suffer a life of guilt and not knowing why.
1. What is the answer? Create a Commonwealth Rural Bank with
long term, low interest fixed rates for all primary producers,
rural business, rural councils and shires to be able to borrow
money at between that of our trading competitors, Japan at
zero percent, America at base rate of 1.5 percent and Britain
at three percent which equals two percent, to cope with seasonal
fluctuations and conditions such as drought, floods, bushfires
and storm damage to crops.
2. Have a three-year debt moratorium with no interest and
no principal repayments.
If you fix the banking-money system, then all the economic,
social and environmental problems will begin to fall into
line. Allow it to continue and as sure as the sun comes up
in the morning, rural Australia will be headed for economic
Money is only a medium of exchange, (it is simply a means
by which we deal with the real things
