19 September 2008 Thought for the Week:

A bank loan is of worth only if the community has already produced wealth and services, which it can buy. Therefore the only natural limit to the creation of credit is the ability of the community to honour that credit. From this angle, the whole resources and wealth of the community may be considered as assets against which all money and credit are a liability. Whatever is physically possible is financially possible.

From every angle, the community is therefore the ultimate owner and creditor of all credit created by the banks. This moral relationship should be legally expressed. Just as the borrower is in debt to the bank, so the bank should be indebted to the public and this relationship should find expression in a system of National Bookkeeping.

The banks, whether private or Commonwealth, should be indebted to the Treasury for every loan granted, and released from that indebtedness when the loan is repaid. By this means both the Commonwealth and the Trading banks would become agents of the Government on behalf of the public, and the financial sovereignty of the government firmly established.

ELECTRICITY SELL-OFF AND IEMMA'S 'AAA' CREDIT RATING

by Betty Luks
They say a week is a long time in politics. Well, for some politicians even two days can mean the difference between a rooster and a feather duster, as events in politics in this last week has shown us all.
Not only did NSW Labor sack its own party-members - Premier and Treasurer - but in WA the Labor government may have received a mortal blow from the wrath of the voters. Counting of the votes is still continuing in that State.

According to Imre Salusinsky in The Weekend Australian (6-7/9/08), storm clouds began to gather when NSW State Treasurer Michael Costa prematurely, and publicly, foreshadowed the swinging reforms and public service job cuts he saw as necessary in the aftermath of the collapse of the electricity sell-off, and all to preserve NSW's AAA credit rating. OT has reported that 80 per cent of the people did not want further assets sold off to the money lenders. Of course, there is much blather, blather, blather, discussion and discussion, about the demise of Iemma and Costa but no explanation as to why a sovereign State has to borrow money from private money lenders - and fraudulent ones at that!

At last people 'in the street' are coming face to face with the fact that the State's prerogative to create and be responsible for its own financial system has been usurped by private interests. Throughout history it was the prerogative of the King or Civil Government to issue its own currency to facilitate the production, exchange and distribution of its goods and services. Why is it that we now have private money-lenders (who create the money out of thin air at that!) controlling and benefiting from the system - at our expense?

Avoid getting into debt:
In his epistle to the Christians in Rome (13:8-10), St. Paul exhorts them: Avoid getting into debt, except the debt of mutual love (Strong's Concordance: the Greek word meaning: "in a social or moral sense"). All the commandments: don't commit adultery, don't kill, don't steal, don't covet, and so on, are summed up in this single command: You must love your neighbour as yourself, (e.g., mutual love and co-operation). Love is the one thing that cannot hurt your neighbour; that is why it is the answer to every one of the commandments.

But! In a modern money economy:
In a modern money economy wrote C.H. Douglas in "The Monopoly of Credit": "money, is the starting point of every action which requires either the co-operation of the community or the use of its assets. If it be realized that control of its mechanism gives, to a major extent, control of both personal and organized activity, it is easy to see that education, publicity and organized Intelligence (in the sense in which the word "Intelligence" is used in military circles) can be controlled, first to minimize the likelihood of criticism arising, and should it arise, depriving it of all the normal facilities for effective action. Finance can, and does, control policy, and as has been well said by an American writer, Charles Ferguson, control of credit and control of the news are concentric."

If the money system is based on fraudulent practices and does not reflect the real physical facts, how can any of us live up to the ethical standards called for by St. Paul ? In today's money economy, one must work in order to receive money based on a fraudulent foundation, in order to live. And this is but a short step to that of a modern economist and/or politician who fills the airwaves with such terms as 'cost benefit analysis, economic viability, productivity, economics of scale, gross domestic product, blather, blather, blather '.ad infinitum.

Do you imagine Chinese workers produce goods any faster than Australians when both have the same tools and machines ? Time and energy are the real laws of cost. The main reason Australians cannot compete with Chinese produced goods is because the financial system is weighted against them.

Natural Law of Cost? Why Time and Energy of Course!
We go to work in order to earn money in order to live. In the real world, work involves Time and Energy. It could be human time and energy or it could be power-machine time and energy, etc. But it does not necessarily have any connection with money. That is quite another system altogether.

Disregarding the question of morality in the necessity for all to work in an industrialized, computerized, technology-driven modern economy, it should be noted that the only means of obtaining something to eat in a money economy is to work to earn money. Money is the means and by making the means a necessity it is a very short step to the means of control of the individual. It becomes a government, not in political terms but in monetary terms. And the control of the monetary system provides the means of control over lives - that is, if one wishes to eat !

To accept blindly that the way to salvation is through the ability to gain value in the 'Almighty Dollar' at the expense of the people who produce the goods and services is to deny the existence of any Absolutes and objective truths.


GOVERNOR-GENERAL SWEARS ALLEGIANCE

from David Flint's Opinion Column:
In a simple but moving ceremony, our new Head of State, as The Australian described her, was sworn in on 5 September, 2008 in the Senate Chamber of the Federal Parliament in Canberra. The process prescribed by the Constitution and by convention has long assured that at the centre of our constitutional system, our oldest institution continues to provide leadership beyond politics, and remains an effective check and balance - something which few countries have achieved.

First, this Commission from Her Majesty appointing Her Excellency was read:
"ELIZABETH THE SECOND, by the Grace of God Queen of Australia and Her other Realms and Territories, Head of the Commonwealth: To Quentin Alice Louise Bryce, Companion of the Order of Australia, Greeting:
WE DO, by this Our Commission under Our Sign Manual and the Great Seal of Australia, appoint you, Quentin Alice Louise Bryce, to be, during Our pleasure, Our Governor-General of the Commonwealth of Australia.
AND WE DO authorise, empower and command you to exercise and perform all and singular the powers and directions contained in the Letters Patent dated 21 August 2008, relating to the office of Governor-General or in future Letters Patent relating to that office, according to such instructions as Our Governor-General for the time being may have received or may in future receive from Us, and according to such laws as are from time to time in force.

AND WE DO declare that the powers conferred by this Our Commission include any further powers that may in future be assigned to the Governor-General in accordance with section 2 of the Constitution of the Commonwealth of Australia. Given at our Court at Balmoral Castle on 21 August 2008. By Her Majesty's Command, (Kevin Rudd) Prime Minister "

Two Oaths sworn...
Then, Her Excellency was invited by the Chief Justice of Australia to swear two Oaths on the Holy Bible.

The first was this Oath of Allegiance:
"I, QUENTIN ALICE LOUISE BRYCE, do swear that I will be faithful and bear true allegiance to Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth the Second, Her heirs and successors according to law. SO HELP ME GOD! (Quentin Alice Louise Bryce)

Sworn, declared and subscribed by the above named Quentin Alice Louise Bryce at Canberra in the Australian Capital Territory before me on 5 September 2008. (Robert French) Chief Justice of Australia"

This was followed by the Oath of Office: "I, QUENTIN ALICE LOUISE BRYCE, do swear that I will well and truly serve Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth the Second, Her heirs and successors according to law, in the office of Governor-General of the Commonwealth of Australia, and I will do right to all manner of people after the laws and usages of the Commonwealth of Australia, without fear or favour, affection or ill will. SO HELP ME GOD! (Quentin Alice Louise Bryce)

Sworn, declared and subscribed by the above named Quentin Alice Louise Bryce at Canberra in the Australian Capital Territory before me on 5 September 2008 (Robert French) Chief Justice of Australia"

Her Excellency then made the following Proclamation, countersigned by the Prime Minister:
"WHEREAS Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth the Second has been graciously pleased by Commission under Her Royal Sign Manual and the Great Seal of Australia dated 21 August 2008 to appoint me, Quentin Alice Louise Bryce, Companion of the Order of Australia, to be Governor-General of the Commonwealth of Australia:
NOW THEREFORE I proclaim that I have this day made the prescribed oath of allegiance and the prescribed oath of office of the Governor-General of the Commonwealth of Australia before the Honourable the Chief Justice of Australia, and that I have assumed that office accordingly.

Signed and sealed with the Great Seal of Australia on 5 September 2008. (Quentin Alice Louise Bryce) Governor-General By Her Excellency's Command (Kevin Rudd) Prime Minister"

A twenty one gun salute announced that a new Governor-General had been sworn in. As Dr David Phillips, ACM's South Australian Convener reminded me, such an honour is reserved for The Queen, certain royalty and Heads of State. The Governor-General is, of course, the Australian Head of State.

Governor -General speaks.....
The Governor-General then addressed the assembly, during the course of which she said:
"I want you to know that I take on this role with solemnity, impartiality, energy, and a profound love for the country we share. I undertake to do my very best to observe, sustain, and uphold the principles, conventions, and rule of law that are our foundation....I promise to be alive, open, responsive, and faithful to the contemporary thinking and working of Australian society. Australians, you have entrusted a great deal to me. I will honour your trust wholeheartedly."

The Prime Minister, Kevin Rudd, responded, in the course of which he commended the continuity which our constitutional system provides:
"We are here today to celebrate two great continuities. A continuity which exists Aboriginal Australia and the continuity that exists also in our modern constitutional arrangements."

What a pity he had to spoil this when later eulogising the occasion and the bipartisan support for the appointment he twice added this rider to a Channel 7 reporter, laughing : "While we are a constitutional monarchy."
Prime Minister , there is a time and a place for this sort of thing. In the meantime, one person watching the installation noted that the Prime Minister was seated on the right of the Governor-General and at the same height during the ceremony, suggesting equality. This was mitigated to an extent by those sitting with the Prime Minister.
Would it not be more appropriate to adopt the seating used when Parliament assembles to hear the speech from the throne at the opening of Parliament? There the Prime Minister sits in the body of the chamber.

Comment - something peculiarly English:
Owen Barfield draws the reader's attention to the important contribution the English have made to foreign languages - the political words ("History in English Words"):
It is a fact that "modern meanings of European words such as constitution, represent, vote, or of Old French words such as address, majority, minority, motion, parliament, … are derived from English, (and) we feel ourselves in the presence, not so much of something peculiarly English as of something universal which England has been the means of bringing to earth."
The Frenchman produced moral abstract ideas and it was the Englishman who attempted to clothe those ideas with reality.


ARGENTINIAN GROUP MEMBERS SUE ZIONIST NGO

Tehran, Sept. 6 (MNA) -- Members of the Argentine Second Republic Movement (MSRA -- Movimiento por la Segunda Rep 'blica Argentina) are suing the Delegation of Israeli Associations in Argentina (DAIA). MSRA members sue Zionist NGO DAIA

MSRA Press Communiqu No. 50 (www.m2ra.com) was issued on August 29, 2008 to explain their position.
Following are excerpts of the text of the press communiqu ': We fight those who wish to silence all public debate on Zionism, a key political issue for Argentina and of global consequence.

Why we sued the Zionist NGO DAIA
Adrian Salbuchi, Juan Gabriel Labak and Enrique Romero filed a criminal lawsuit alleging calumny and slander against the top officers of the DAIA, in respect of the contents of their "Report on Anti-Semitism in Argentina - 2006" prepared by the Centro de Estudios Sociales (CES - Social Studies Center), belonging to the DAIA (Delegaci 'n de Asociaciones Israelitas Argentinas - Delegation of Israeli Associations in Argentina).
Our lawsuit was filed with District Court No. 13, Secretariat No. 80 in Buenos Aires, Argentina, provisionally presided over by the Honorable Judge Dr. Ra 'l Juan Garc 'a.
In their report, the undersigned are insulted and slandered by the above, as they accuse us of "virulent anti-Semitism" because of our global and national geopolitical analyses published as press communiqu 's of our group, MSRA and as reports in the "El Traductor Gr 'fico" bulletin. "Anti-Semitism" constitutes a crime of discrimination under the Argentine Discrimination Act, Law No 23.592 (i.e., Art. 3 defines "discrimination against persons or groups on account of their religious beliefs").

A militant organization
Adding insult to injury, the CES gave their report ample local and international publicity through diverse channels and the media, also translating it fully into English, and authorizing its publication on the Internet by the powerful U.S.-based Zionist organization, the Anti-Defamation League (ADL), a militant Zionist organization founded and operated by the Jewish Masonic lodge B'nai B'rith, whose top officers recently met with Argentine President Cristina Kirchner and Foreign Secretary Jorge Taiana in Buenos Aires and told them to be more outspoken against so-called "anti-Semitism" in Argentina. In addition, the "Reports on Anti-Semitism" issued every year by the CES/DAIA are used as an official source of information on our country by the U.S. State Department. All of this and other actions on their part have caused the plaintiffs severe moral, professional and economic damage and injury.

Political ideology
As we explain in our lawsuit against DAIA and CES officers, our analyses and criticisms are aimed solely at the official policies of Israel and Zionism as a political ideology that supports, promotes, and defends the interests of that foreign power throughout the world. We solely focus on highlighting the grossly inhuman nature of those policies that breach basic human rights, their expansionist plans in the Middle East and their illegitimate interference in the internal affairs and policies of the Argentine state. All of this forms part of our work and efforts (as politicians, journalists and international social analysts), to promote greater public awareness in Argentina of the concrete risks that our country runs, if we allow the United States, Israel and Zionist lobbies and pressure groups to move forward with what increasingly appears to be a well-orchestrated campaign over the Argentine Republic, its territory, foreign policy, natural resources, national unity and social peace.

Pressure exerted by Zionists
The undue pressure exerted by Zionist organizations over global and domestic public opinion tends to misinform and distort reality in these key issues, which also puts at risk the very welfare and physical integrity of Argentina's large Jewish community that for the most part wishes to live in peace and harmony, as it always has, by unjustly tarnishing them with the violence emanating from and promoted by the terrorist (entity) of Israel and its unconditional ally in the Middle East, the United States of America.

Silence any criticism
We stress that using their enormous financial, media, diplomatic and political resources at their service, internationally and domestically, these and other Zionist organizations, lobbies and other (directly or indirectly) pro-Zionist entities attempt to silence any criticism and balanced analyses of these fundamental political issues. Zionist activities in different parts of the world today threaten to drag all of mankind towards new and increasingly violent wars in the Middle East and elsewhere. Not satisfied with having unleashed genocidal destruction upon the nations of Palestine, Lebanon, Iraq and Afghanistan, they now target (the) next victims for unilateral military aggression and they clearly also have in mind the so-called Triple Border Areas (where the Argentine, Paraguayan and Brazilian borders meet), and where not surprisingly huge fresh water resources lie (attacking this region was already announced in September 2001 by former top Pentagon Zionist government officer Douglas Feith, tacitly supported by his bosses Paul Wolfowitz, Donald Rumsfeld and George W. Bush).

Clearly define
In presenting our lawsuit, we asked the Court, amongst other things, to not only sentence the accused regarding the calumnies and slander perpetrated against us but, more importantly, to clearly define that criticism against the official policies of the United States and Israel, and the ideological premises of Zionism in no way constitute acts of "anti-Semitism" or "anti-Judaism", nor crimes of discrimination of any sort whatsoever. We also ask that the Court clearly establish as legal precedent the conceptual differences that clearly exist between the terms "Anti-Semitism", "Anti-Zionism" and "Anti-Judaism".
We further point out that the ways in which every manner of distortion is unleashed upon this complex subject regarding these and other relevant terms nowadays constitute clear examples of psychological warfare, often assuming the marks of veritable intellectual terrorism, in that those who perpetrate them try to silence all manner of serious, balanced and fair public debate on such fundamental political matters. In short, to any person of goodwill, as well as for all dictionaries of Western languages, we have that:

Judaism is
Judaism is a millenarian religion. The Jewish ethnic group is a millenarian social group dispersed amongst many countries of the world, whose members have specific cultural, social and religious characteristics, but who nevertheless differ -- often very acutely -- in their ideological and political stances and opinions.

Zionism is '.
Zionism is a nationalist and fundamentalist political ideology founded in the late 19th century that today has grown and integrated into a very powerful global network of pressure groups, lobbies and organizations of different kinds, totally aligned with the interests and objectives of Israel.
Amongst the main organizations forming part of this global network, we find: AIPAC (American Israel Public Affairs Committee), the American Jewish Congress, the ADL (Anti-Defamation League), the AJC (American Jewish Committee), the Conference of Presidents of Major American Jewish Organizations, and the ZOA (Zionist Organization of America) (all based in the United States); the World Jewish Congress, World Jewish Committee, World Zionist Organization, Jewish Agency, and B'nai B'rith (all of which are multinational entities); and the AMIA (Asociaci 'n Mutual Israelita Argentina), DAIA (Delegaci 'n de Asociaciones Israelitas Argentinas) and OSA (Organizaci 'n Sionista Argentina) (all based in Argentina). Israel is a national political entity created in 1948, established in a specific geographic location.

Naturally, all our analyses and critiques -- which are consistent, balanced, well-documented and referenced -- are centered on the latter two. Signed: Adrian Salbuchi, Enrique Romero, Juan Gabriel Labak '. Tehran:, 2008/09/06 PA/HG END MNA.
