2006 Thought for the Week:
first step in undermining confidence in a long-established institution is to raise
destructive questions about it in the guise of giving patronising advice for its
own good. We have seen this unrelenting ideology being spread around for the last
25 years with the continued assault on certain members of the Royal Family. Our
Monarchy and our Royal Family now occupy the focal point of the crucial spiritual
and political conflict of this New Age. Between people treated as unique, living,
human persons and people treated as equal, indistinguishable, economic, financial
and political units; between family and the products of short-term mating; between
propriety and impropriety; decency and indecency; between inheritance and disinheritance;
between real wealth and outrageous accumulations of power based on debt; between
the efficient near-perfection of a Royal Occasion, and the insane inefficiency
of Big Business and a Government Department; in fact, between a nation continuing
in its Christian tradition, and one which has abandoned it for largely atheistic,
chaotic pluralism with no common morality."
George Merritt in "The
Republic of the Rich," 1999.
SUBLIME AND THE PREDICTABLE
by James Reed
The Murdoch media (among others), has for some time been launching a full-blown
attack upon the credibility of Prince Charles. However on the rare occasion a
few fish of truth swim through the net. The Weekend Australian, 29-29/1/06,
p.22 reports on Prince Charles' organic Duchy Home Farm at Highgate in Gloucester.
Two decades ago the farm adopted organic farming practices and the Prince set
up his own food brand, 'Duchy Originals'. The company now has an output of AU$11
million per year, with all profits going to charity. What has Hawke, Whitlam,
Keating and - Howard - done for charity lately? If they are active then I haven't
read about it.
(They don't contribute their money to charity James,
but they are very free with other people's money, such as the foreign aid, confiscated
- legalised robbery - via the taxation system and used to prop up puppet regimes
all round the world
is the person that the establishment media don't want as king - in fact the monarchy
is to be abolished in favour of a grey, lifeless "republic". Despite lip service
about having a popularly elected president (how about Pauline?), you can bet your
wheat kickback dollar that the system will be ruled by conventional grey-water
types. The same type of characters, for example, who feature in the "Wheat for
Weapons" AWB scandal.
Scandal? Isn't it
business as usual in our wondrous, diverse Australia? Unsurprisingly the conduct
of ministers and the Prime Minister has been exempt from the Cole Inquiry. Although
I hate being in agreement with Opposition Leader Kim Beazley, he was right in
his claim to the National Press Club on 1/2/06 that John Howard, Mark Vaile and
Alexander Downer all "knew" or ought to have known. If the Australian ambassador
to the US lobbied Congress not to investigate the AWB, then it is reasonable to
suppose that the ambassador knew the AWB had something to hide. And surely the
ambassador was not on a frolic of his own, but was acting under the directions
of Foreign Minister Alexander Downer?
was a trade issue which intersected with the Iraqi war issue, both the Trade Minister
and the Prime Minister would, or should also have known. Sure they did. According
to The Australian of 3/2/06, p.1, the Cole Inquiry has already received
evidence that the Department of Foreign Affairs and Trade had known since June
2003, 10 weeks after the war in Iraq had started, that kickbacks had been made
to Saddam Hussein's regime. The Weekend Australian of 4-5/2/06 p.1, reports
that there were at least five separate occasions when the government had been
warned of the illegal payments.
Thus if Honest
John, et al, did not know that the AWB was paying kickbacks to Saddam Hussein,
then it was only because they were recklessly indifferent about the truth. John
Howard admitted on 3/2/06 that his government had received a report by Iraq's
interim Coalition Provisional Authority that said Saddam Hussein had abused the
oil-for-food programme by forcing suppliers to put kickbacks into the prices.
Howard said that the report didn't specifically
mention "wheat contracts". He maintains that even though Australia was one of
Iraq's leading trading partners and under the oil-for-food programme was supplying
over $1.5 billion worth of wheat. It goes to show that in the game of global
capitalism, there are no enemies, only customers. We will feed you, take
your money - then shoot you!
system will present us with the same type of characters: tired grey men in a morally
corrupt system. Prince Charles operates on a higher moral plane than the runts
and grunters who presently rule the pig pen of modern politics.
THE HISTORY WARS: TOWARD THE PAST
Prime Minister John Howard's press club speech "Towards One Destiny"
(26/1/06) well illustrates the fundamental incoherence of his world view. The
speech was classical conservative stuff which would be right at home in Quadrant.
History as taught in schools is a stew of politically correct ideologies mixed
with cultural relativism and post modernism. The values of the Enlightenment -
individual freedom, egalitarianism and the rule of law - take second place to
leftist "progressive" values of social reform. The institutions and values of
British political culture are vilified.
of this is true, but the great irony of all this is that Howard has done more
to undermine Anglo-Australia than even that great defamer of the English, Paul
Keating. Asian migration has been (officially - we all know that with illegals
and Asians from New Zealand the figures are higher) in excess of 70 per cent of
the annual intake for many years. Economic globalisation has proceeded at full
steam, a part of which is draconian industrial relations. Basic freedoms have
been destroyed by his security legislation. But his conservative speeches still
tug at the heart strings of those dopey conservatives who - with the same mindless
faith of new-agers and X-File advocates of UFO alien abductions - "want to believe".
John Howard is not a conservative, but a radical
globalist, more dangerous than those he (rightfully) criticises. Watch carefully
- you can see the strings being pulled.
genuine conservative educationist Kevin Donnelly has argued in his book "Why Our
Schools Are Failing," and in many newspaper articles that high school and as well,
university, history is essentially the product of the Left's long march through
the institutions. Schools of education are primarily concerned with inculcating
politically correct values.
Donnelly in The Australian of 31/1/06 substantiates
this claim by a survey of the mission statements of most of the nation's schools
of education. There we find that making teachers "agents for social change and
justice" within a "critical Social-constructivist framework" is a primary concern.
A typical high school history text teaches that the foundation of Australia
was based upon genocide. As Donnelly puts it: "European settlement is described
as an invasion, Australia's Anglo-Celtic heritage is either marginalised or ignored,
indigenous culture is portrayed as beyond reproach and teachers are told they
must give priority to perspectives of gender, multiculturalism and global future.
(The Weekend Australian, 28-29/1/06, p.24).
Pre-1788 Aborigines are
portrayed as "noble savages" living in a political and ecological utopia. No mention
is ever made of their appalling treatment of women - giving teenage girls to old
men ("Elders) was common. Nor is the fact of inter-tribal warfare mentioned. Only
with White settlement were individual Aborigines relatively free to move over
Australia as before this they ran the risk of being killed by another tribe.
much for "migration," "multiculturalism," and "tolerance". The aim of such education
strategies is to cultivate a sense of shame so that Whites can be manipulated
by the new class. The story behind all of this is complex and has been detailed
in a variety of League publications. The influence of Jewish intellectual Franz
Boas and other left wing 'intellectuals" would need to be examined against the
background of real world history.
Kevin MacDonald's book * "The Culture of
Critique" is a good starting point for those who wish to understand "how it got
In conclusion, the Left, paradoxically,
are perhaps right in their general claim that the study of history and social
change are intrinsically connected. After studying the history of their activities
maybe it is time for some real social change, but not of course in the direction
they desire. Rather, genuine conservatives should believe in the motto, "forward
to the past".

BENDED KNEE TO ISLAM
by James Reed
simultaneously with the Muhammad cartoon controversy was the issue of police bias/inaction
in respect to Middle Eastern race rioters. NSW Opposition leader Peter Debnam
made headlines when he stated that the Labor Government of Premier Morris Iemma
had encouraged police to "go soft" on the Middle Eastern revenge attackers in
the wake of the Sydney December 2005 race riots.
Not one Middle Eastern
attacker had been arrested, although 30 White men had been charged. After the
political storm erupted by 31 January 2006, six Middle Easterners had been arrested.The
Opposition Leader stated what is now common knowledge: that the "go soft" position
arose from Labor's political correctness. Many electorates had large Middle Eastern
populations (a "reserve army" of Labor voters) and during the 1990s Labor Party
branches had been stacked with Middle Eastern members.
Kerr, a Liberal MP whose seat is Cronulla said that he had a multitude of constituents
complain of inaction by police on revenge attacks (The Weekend Australian,
28-29/06, p.17). Iemma and NSW police commissioner Ken Moroney claimed that the
easy arrest of Anglos was made because of the existence of video footage, while
there was no video footage of the Lebanese revenge attacks. However Channel 9
showed video footage of about 30 Lebanese bashing an Anglo at Cronulla after the
riot. The Weekend Australian cites the example of a police document that
said that the night after the Sydney riots vehicles and a crowd of Middle Eastern
criminals were sighted in the vicinity of Punchbowl Park but: "A direction was
given to the police around midnight not to enter the area and antagonise these
Tim Priest, a retired detective,
said (The Australian 25/1/06, p.8) that Middle Eastern criminals were allowed
to run amok" because of directives given from "up high" for the police to avoid
taking action. Pacific Islanders were also involved in smashing cars during the
riots, but no charges were laid over damage to vehicles (The Weekend Australian,
28-29/1/06, p.6). This is the real face of multiculturalism. It is about the rule
of law being forgotten in favour of political correctness. It is about the discrimination
of the dispossessed majority (soon to be minority) Anglo population. That which
the great League man, Eric Butler, warned us about in his articles of forty years
ago, is coming to pass. From the perspective of the racial health of the Anglo
ethnic group, Australia's post World War II immigration programme has been little
more than an "ethnic dilution" programme.
We either think "ethnically" and
"tribally" like all other groups do (which is our "multicultural right") or we
disappear from the face of history.

SAVE AUSTRALIA ALLIANCE
The great patriot of the Australian Freedom Movement, Tony Pitt,
sadly, is dying. However he and some other loyal patriots are attempting to get
together and rally the pro-freedom parties/groups/individuals in a massive push
to break up the cosy power structure of the major parties - and unseat them.
of the key issues which concern us will be on the agenda: the sell-off of Australian
minerals and energy, the privatising and foreignising of our water; the importation
of migrants who hate the Australian way of life; law and order, the banking issue;
the need to re-industrialise Australia; the need for the defence of Australia.
To take but one example: the establishment and politically correct groups (especially
feminist groups) want Australian males to be totally disarmed. In Victoria one
cannot even own a sword for home self-defence. Criminals thus have a field day
preying on a helpless population: for the 'crims' still have their guns.
more disturbing Janes, the world defence authority predicts that Australia
will be at war with Asia in 15 Years. Tony Pitt has a video of Mr. Samawaga
of the Indonesian Golkar Party threatening that Indonesia would invade Australia.
The then Indonesian Minister for Foreign Affairs, Ali Alites says on the same
tape that "Mr. Samawaga is only echoing the sentiments of the people and the parliament
of Indonesia. If only for the defence issue, we need to unite to begin dealing
with the threats to Australia's survival.

THE STORY OF THE BRADSHAWS
Ian Wilson LL.B.
I was naturally interested to read a review by Nicholas Rothwell
("Rock Bottom," The Weekend Australian (Books) 28-29/1/06) of Ian Wilson's
(no connection) "Lost World of the Kimberley: Extraordinary Glimpses of Australia's
Ice Age Ancestors" (Allen and Unwin).
Rothwell begins by saying that a "fanciful
interpretation of the Bradshaw figures of the Kimberley should never have been
given the imprimatur of a leading publisher." Wilson's book must have hit a
The Bradshaw figures consist of an array of rock art which
resembles the art of cultures like ancient Egypt more than that of Australian
Aborigines. Thus one painting "Reindeer Rock" consists of animals which clearly
look like reindeer. (Wilson has a photo of this in The Weekend Australian (Books)
4-5/2/06, p.R9) Wilson and others believe that the Bradshaws were painted by a
culture that lived in Australia before the last Ice Age - which seems confirmed
in part by radiometric dating.
Wilson, to be sure goes on to hypothesise about
the links between these paintings and European mythology, but that is not grounds
for the savage Rothwell review and the statement "we have reached a sad moment
in the degeneration of the nation's culture."
is challenged by the type of questioning of Wilson, and others, although he does
not say this himself, is the foundational myth of Australian political correctness,
that the Aborigines were first here. The story goes that they were then massacred
by Anglo-Australians. As punishment Anglos must lose this land to non-White migrants.
This is the sub-text to the politically correct history of today. Wilson, of course
doesn't discuss this issue, keeping solely to the archaeology, so his own views
are not known, but the question naturally arises when reflecting on these issues.
Whatever the ultimate political significance of the Bradshaw paintings are, Wilson
has done an excellent job in stimulating intelligent debate. Mainstream Australian
intellectual life has become a waterless desert of conformity, only enlivened
by the greenery of free thinkers like Wilson.
Buy his book and enjoy.
A SLOW NEWS DAY
It must have been a slow news/day in Adelaide on 31 January, 2006.
The Advertiser, the Murdoch press paper that solely "serves" that city
had as its headline "Race Hate Base". The story is about a group of "White supremacist
"crusaders" who have "gained a foothold in Adelaide". Now don't expect goose-steps
down Rundle Mall by blonde Aryan storm-troopers. The "crusaders" of the Creativity

a post office box. Page 6 of The Advertiser even has a photograph of the
Oaklands Park PO Boxes!
as a piece of investigative journalism found the site then alerted the Justice
Minister Chris Allison, who in turn asked the Australian Federal police to investigate
whether Australia's race/thought crime laws had been breached. All this for
A small group of individuals pushing a nutty creed who would have
never been heard of by most people without the exposure given by The Advertiser.
The exercise is one of "racists under the bed" where the establishment sabre rattles
to keep the little white mice in a state of control: don't even think about it.Thus
the page 6 photos of a smiling blonde child and the slogan "Our race is royal"
(a claim which all races believe to be true of themselves) are equated with other
quotations from the site which are genuinely offensive and objectionable.
again, extremists are used to tar all who care about their race, with the same
brush. When will the establishment media lament about the sale of black American
rap music containing racist lyrics about killing whites and raping white women?
THE TRAGEDY OF
by James Reed
A report by the
think tank, 'Women's Forum Australia,' released at the 34th session of the UN
Committee on the Elimination of All Forms of Discrimination Against Women, has
stated that the two most common reasons why Australian women (read "White women")
have abortions is that they think that they can't afford the baby or that the
father does not want to accept responsibility for the child. (The Australian,
30/1/06, p.6).The Australian Institute of Health
and Welfare released national abortion statistics which showed that one in four
Australian pregnancies end in abortion.
leaving aside the feminist angle and the UN New World Order angle, it is clear
even from the establishment's own data that the tragedy of abortion ultimately
lies with the heartless financial/economic system that rules our lives. The social
credit alternative at its most basic level would not permit innocent human lives
to be sacrificed on the economic altar. This is an overwhelming moral argument
in favour of social credit over the coldness and ruthlessness of global capitalism.

What hypocrisy. When it comes to what Germans are most sensitive about,
Hitler and the Holocaust, they are ruthless censors. British historian David Irving
has spent three months in a Viennese prison awaiting trial on Feb. 20 for speeches
he made 15 years ago in Austria. Skeptics and deniers of the Holocaust are prosecuted,
fined and imprisoned in Europe with the enthusiastic endorsement of the European
To advance a war of civilizations:
and agitators are exploiting those cartoons of Mohammed to advance a war of civilizations
and expel Europeans from the Middle East seems undeniable. But that does not excuse
the paralyzing stupidity of that Danish paper in running those cartoons - or the
arrogant irresponsibility of European newspapers in plastering those cartoons
all over their front pages.
The storm first broke last September, when Jyllands-Posten
published 12 caricatures of Mohammed, including a lampoon of the Prophet with
a terrorist bomb as a turban. In the Islamic faith, any depiction of the face
of Mohammed is forbidden.
The Danish paper knew this. It published the cartoons
to protest "the rejection of modern, secular society" by Muslims. The
cartoons were thus a defiant provocation. And they succeeded.
East responded with a boycott of Danish foods and goods. But when, in the name
of press solidarity, Le Soir and Le Monde in Paris, El Pais in Madrid and Die
Welt in Berlin republished the cartoons on page one, Islam exploded. For this
was an in-your-face declaration by the secularist media of the European Union
that it will exercise its right to insult any God, any Prophet, any faith, whenever
it so chooses.
"Enough lessons from these reactionary bigots," said
Serge Faubert, editor of Le Soir. "Just because the Quran bans images of
Mohammed doesn't mean non-Muslims have to submit to this." Faubert, however,
is not a Danish soldier in the Shi'ite sector of Iraq. Innocents will pay the
price of his 'heroism'.
The U.S. State Department
seemed to empathize with Muslim rage, stating that "inciting religious or
ethnic hatred in this manner is unacceptable." But, within hours, had retreated
to neutral ground: "While we share the offence that Muslims have taken at
these images, we at the same time vigorously defend the right of individuals to
express points of view."
Islamic countries have recalled ambassadors
from Copenhagen. People have been injured and property destroyed in mob assaults
as far away as Indonesia. Relations between the West and the Islamic world have
been dealt another rupturing blow.
And for what? What was the purpose of this
juvenile idiocy by the Europress? Is this what freedom of the press is all about
- the freedom to insult the faith of a billion people and start a religious war?
European governments are wringing their hands over the rage and violence unleashed,
but they seem paralyzed.
What is the matter?
Why cannot they denounce press irresponsibility while defending press freedom?
British Foreign Minister Jack Straw deplored republication of the cartoons as
"insensitive ... disrespectful ... wrong." But German Interior Minister
Wolfgang Shauble haughtily dissented, "Here, in Europe, governments have
nothing to say about which publisher publishes what."
When it comes to what Germans are most sensitive about, Hitler and the Holocaust,
they are ruthless censors. British historian David Irving has spent three months
in a Viennese prison awaiting trial on Feb. 20 for speeches he made 15 years ago
in Austria. Skeptics and deniers of the Holocaust are prosecuted, fined and imprisoned
in Europe with the enthusiastic endorsement of the European press.
are we all that different.
We have "speech codes" in colleges
and "hate crimes" laws to protect minorities from abusive remarks. But
newspapers that hail these codes throw a blanket of "artistic freedom"
over scatological art that degrades religious symbols - from putting a figure
of Christ in a jar of urine to a "painting" of the Virgin Mary surrounded
by female genitalia and elephant dung that hung in a Brooklyn museum.
has happened in Europe is that the secular press, which loves to mock the beliefs
and symbols of religious faith, has now insulted a deadly serious religion that
answers insults with action.
TO THE EDITOR
To the Editor of The Age,
7th February 2006:
Rabbi John Levi defames honourable and intelligent
men (7/2) when he falsely asserts that Holocaust denial (his term) is 'an insane
theory'. Anyone who carefully and fairly studies the writings of the major historical
revisionists who have questioned important aspects of the currently accepted understanding
of the Holocaust, will quickly see that they have adduced powerful evidence and
strong arguments, these presented in courteous and academic style.
that they are refused adequate space in most public forums to debate their theses
and are even subject to deportation and imprisonment, constitute a prima facie
case that a significant part of their findings is true and that powerful interests
are desperate to suppress it. Other claims by Rabbi Levi (that Holocaust revisionism
'deliberately profanes the memories of millions of people', 'contains a deep-seated
anti-Semitism' and seeks 'to intimidate the Jewish community') are also belied
by the published texts of men such as Robert Faurisson, Germar Rudolf, Jurgen
Graf, Carlo Mattogno and others.
It is not they but he who is 'peddling propaganda'
- Zionist propaganda; and it is he who should be ashamed.

Beautiful Italian Woollen Suits Now 'Chinese':
A friend recently toured Italy and whilst in the industrial area of Milan was
shown the rows of woollen mills where the famous cloth was produced from Australian
Merino wool. Regrettably many of them had closed their doors due to competition
from China. To add insult to injury, my friend was told that when the disused
mills became virtually worthless, the Chinese actually purchased some of them
and began production with Chinese labour. This would have been done to achieve
a genuine 'Made in Italy' label.
So there you have it - Italian cloth made
in Chinese owned mills by Chinese labour, in Italy!!
Closer to home, Australian
meat processors including Tatiara Meat and Australian Meat Holdings are importing
Chinese labour for their boning room workforce. Special classes are conducted
in the community for these people to learn English to help them blend into our
society. It is obvious they are here to stay (and bring their friends); they are
not 'fly in - fly out' labour.
Why does our system not encourage our home-grown
workforce to fill these positions?
Kenneth Grundy Naracoorte, S.A.
a Lack of Patriotism:
Sir: Lately there has been a lot of 'soul searching'
reasons and excuses appearing in the mainstream media as to why our young men
are not coming forward to join our "Defence Forces". Admirals, generals, politicians
and so-called "defence experts" have aired their opinions but not one of them
has had the courage to cite the politically incorrect reason for our youth not
volunteering to lay their lives on the line for the defence of our beloved Australia,
although in the past there were no shortages of volunteers.
An as ex-AIF volunteer
with service in the Middle East and the South West Pacific, I know full well that
each man who volunteered to join our defence forces was fully aware that he had
to be prepared to lay his life on the line.
However, it is an entirely different
matter when our young men are asked to lay their lives on the line to become little
more than mercenaries; to aid in the expansionist commercial ambitions of the
USA and to help make billions of dollars for the likes of Bush, Cheney and their
I know Australian soldiers, some senior ranking and some junior, who
were appalled when John Howard sent them off to a war which even 'blind Freddy'
could see was not a war in the defence of Australia, but a war of aggression against
mostly defenceless civilians.
In hindsight, can any of us believe that any
one of the 2,000-odd American soldiers who have given their lives would have believed
they were protecting America? So, I say again: is it any wonder that our young
men are not coming forward?
Yours sincerely Edward Paterson, Kingscliff NSW.
