2008 Thought for the Week:
Evatt and Social Credit: So far from regarding Social Credit financial proposals
as subversive, Dr. Evatt initially attempted to convince Social Crediters that
he was a sympathiser. But that was when the Social Credit movement was spearheading
the nation-wide campaign of opposition to Dr. Evatt's proposals to virtually destroy
the Constitution by a massive increase in powers for the Federal Government

JEROME KERRIEL AND THE FUTURES MARKET
by Betty Luks
Incredibly, one young Frenchman
has lost his employer-bank 3-4 billion Euros. How can this be? Well, if you were
allowed to play roulette with your employer's computer-figures and there was no
limit to the number of noughts behind the main blip figures, maybe you would get
carried away too.
I thought I should try to grasp how this futures market
works, so I looked up the edition of "The Global Trap: Globalization and the Assault
on Prosperity and Democracy" published in the 1990s by Pluto Press.
a sketchy explanation:
Futures trading started out as a form of insurance
for e.g., exporters who wanted to protect themselves against fluctuations in the
value of their trading partner's currency. But with the coming of computers and
their virtually unlimited capacity, the derivatives trade 'made itself' completely
This meant the big financial centres
had now their own exchange just for the futures trade. This heralded a dramatic
change in the nature of financial transactions, of which only 2 to 3 per cent
now directly serve to protect trade and industry. All other contracts on the futures
exchange "are bets organised among themselves by those who conjure with the market,"
writes Martin and Schumann in "The Global Trap."
example German government bond prices are not now negotiated by dealers in fixed-rate
securities at German banks. Long before that, jobbers (middlemen or wholesalers
have negotiated prices at London's 'Liffe' futures exchange, where two-thirds
of deals in 'bond futures' are now transacted.
are told: The big banks have done splendid business out of this latter risk which
was first generated by the derivatives trade itself. It is completely out of the
control of any government and huge sums slosh around the world daily. Numerous
corporations have long been their own bankers.
Corporations such as Siemens
earn more from its financial transactions than from its world-famous products.
Hundreds of big companies look after their 'credits' by themselves issuing world
And so it goes on in this vein, with our politicians attempting to
give the impression they are still in control!
TO THE PRESS ON THE ISSUE:
To The Editor, The Chronicle, Toowoomba.
29, January 2008.
Subject: JEROME KERRIEL and the Billions of Euros he lost
his bank on the Futures Market Roulette Wheel.
Like the wind, electricity, music and God, all money besides currency
in the form of notes and coin, is totally invisible.
Jerome Kerriel understands
this, if nobody else does. He has been operating his own Bank within a Proprietary
Bank, distributing credit to his friends and colleagues' accounts instead of the
usual debt distributed by his employer. A millionaire every minute is being made
in China by the same process, but for different reasons!
Jerome has obviously
overlooked powerful colleagues or opponents, who have not shared in the largesse,
or others who fear their own similar activities might reach the media front pages.
Distributing money for wars knows no boundaries, the winners being those who end
up with no financial debt, just as Jerome's friends can now appreciate.
good news about all of this, is that nobody has lost anything, or been deprived
of anything, but a lot of people have gained something for nothing. This
is what must be stopped!
While Jerome probably will not be facing a civil
court, for obvious reasons, he may have to face a far worse "Court", similar to
that faced by Jesus Christ when he whipped the same type of money-lenders 2,000
A flogging, a crown of thorns and a very heavy cross to carry and
hang from, will be far worse than any sentence a civil Court can bring. Otherwise
we will hear no more of this continuing practice.

BRITANNIA LOST OUT?
The headlines in the United Kingdom's Telegraph 28/1/2008
read: "After three centuries, Britannia loses her place on British coins." The
headline itself is misleading or the reporter doesn't know too much of Britain's
The article disclosed: "The
image of Britannia, which has graced British coins for centuries, is to be removed
from the 50 pence piece as part of a redesign by the Royal Mint." Only three centuries?
The image of the Barati's tutelary, the ancient goddess of plenty,
Britannia, who watched over and safeguarded the people on land and on the seas,
has graced British coins for more than a mere three centuries! But note,
I emphasise the word British.

The ancient Lycians dwelt on the coast of southwest Asia Minor and their language
was a branch of the Anatolian languages. According to my dictionary search this

European'; that is, the ancestor of all Indo-European languages.

MALCOLM IS INTENT ON APOLOGISING IS HE?
Liberal MP Malcolm Turnbull is so sure that the present generation
of Australians should accept responsibility and apologise for the "forcible removal
of several generations of aboriginal children (from their parents and communities)
from the turn of the 18th and the 19th Century, through to the early 1970s". The
Australian online, 29/1/08:
If the man is in such an apologising frame of mind, and as one
who has only recently resigned from that class of banker-financiers once known
in derogative terms as 'coin clippers', I demand he apologise to ALL AUSTRALIANS!
But let me explain why.
As a recent merchant banker, a member of the present
evil financial system, and now a member of the present Commonwealth Parliament,
which legislation under-girds the 'coin clippers' debt-money system, he can act
as representative for both groups and apologise to the following:
families broken up because of financial stress
§ To those families who have
lost fathers, sons and/or husbands through suicide. Men, who could see no hope
of financially surviving because of 1970s prices but carrying 21st century costs
and overheads. There is such a thing as a just price Malcolm. How can a people
seeking justice for all consider a just wage but never a just price?
to all those families who lost their homes, businesses and farms, primarily through
no fault of their own but because of the present corrupt financial system!!!
on Malcolm. Apologise!
But no, an apology is not enough. If you are truly
genuine, then you must strive for financial policies that will reflect and release
and distribute the real wealth of this great land to all the people. By doing
so, you will have helped establish just and honest economic and financial systems
for all Australians.
But don't expect me to honour
you for it Malcolm, and I do hope neither will you expect to receive an 'Australia
To my understanding, you will
have done only that which it is your duty to do! You will have helped to express
through a just financial system God's Grace in the realm of a nation's housekeeping,
or as you would say, economics. You will have accepted your responsibility as
a member of the Commonwealth Parliament charged with the responsibility for a
just distribution of God's abundance to all Australians, including the Aboriginal

ME TO INTRODUCE THE PRESIDENT OF THE EUROPEAN UNION
From David Flint's Opinion Column:
William Hague's speech in the House
of Commons on 21 January 2008 on the EU (Amendment) Bill to ratify the Treaty
of Lisbon, without a referendum, was very amusing, and perceptive. Mr. Hague understands
how the politicians, having concocted a camouflage for the EU Constitution to
avoid allowing the people to vote, will themselves choose the President of Europe
behind closed doors. And then the incumbent will turn what was intended to be
a ceremonial post into one which wages awesome power.
Speech of 2008:
Mr Hague, a wonderful biographer writer as he demonstrates
in "William Pitt The Younger," (Alfred A. Knopf, New York, 2005), has delivered
what some are already calling "the speech of 2008." He referred to reports of
a drive led by President Sarkozy to make Tony Blair President of Europe.
see how the post of a permanent President of the European Council could evolve
is not difficult even for the humblest student of politics, and it is, of course,
rumoured that one Tony Blair may be interested in the job. If that prospect makes
us uncomfortable on the Conservative benches, just imagine how it will be viewed
in Downing Street!
I know Blair's mind
as well as they do:
"I must warn Ministers that having tangled with Tony
Blair across the Dispatch Box on hundreds of occasions, I know his mind almost
as well as they do. I can tell them that when he goes off to a major political
conference of a centre-right party and refers to himself as a socialist, he is
on manoeuvres, and is busily building coalitions as only he can.
can all picture the scene at a European Council sometime next year. Picture the
face of our poor Prime Minister as the name "Blair" is nominated by one President
and Prime Minister after another: the look of utter gloom on his face at the nauseating,
glutinous praise oozing from every Head of Government, the rapid revelation of
a majority view, agreed behind closed doors when he, as usual, was excluded.
would he more regret no longer being in possession of a veto: the famous dropped
jaw almost hitting the table, as he realises there is no option but to join in.
And then the awful moment when the motorcade of the President of Europe sweeps
into Downing Street.
"The gritted teeth and
bitten nails: the Prime Minister emerges from his door with a smile of intolerable
anguish; the choking sensation as the words, "Mr President", are forced from his
mouth. And then, once in the Cabinet room, the melodrama
of, 'When will you hand over to me?' all over again."
MULTICULTURALISM AND ITS POISONOUS 'FRUIT'
It is 7 or more years since Victoria's then premier Steve Bracks
was intent on introducing legislation outlawing 'racism', anti-semitism, etc.,
and further promoting the policy of 'multiculturalism'. Discussion papers from
the general public and interested groups were invited and the League of Rights
made a submission.
For those readers interested,
a copy of the League's Submission will be posted on its website at a later date.
Look for it under the Race, Culture and Nation section - Racial and Religious
At the time, the League
insisted the Australian people have the right to openly discuss such matters without
being criminalised for doing so and, in fact, saw the proposed legislation as
a violation of their long established rights to freedom of speech and association.
you can imagine our interest in Janet Albrechsten's report from Canada on the
Canadian Multiculturalism Thought Police - better known as the Canadian Human
Rights Commission - and the troubles 'free' Canadians are now experiencing as
a direct result of similar legislation in place in that country. (The Australian
January 16, 2008)
Albrechtson quoted Alan
Borovoy, general counsel to the Canadian Civil Liberties Association who back
in the 60s and 70s was instrumental in helping to set up the legislation he is
now opposed to. In the Calgary Herald, he said:
'During the years when
my colleagues and I were labouring to create such commissions, we never imagined
that they might ultimately be used against freedom of speech". Pointing to the
empire-building frolic of the commissions, Borovoy advised that the legislation
needed to be changed to make it clear that these commissions had no business investigating
and making edicts about thought crimes.'
Icke's Open Letter:
David Icke (many of our readers will have heard or
know of him) has recently written an open letter to the Canadians. It is headed:
Hey 'Free' Canada: Get Off Your Bloody Knees: "This is not just a story about
Canada - it is the blueprint for the end of free expression that is unfolding
across the planet under the guise of Orwellian terms like 'Political Correctness'
and 'Hate Speech'.
I first came across Richard
Warman, a 'lawyer' working for the Canadian government, when he campaigned with
the above organisations to have my public talks in Canada and elsewhere banned
because I was a 'racist'. This is invariably the insult hurled at anyone who gets
close to the truth. Even people demanding the truth about 9/11 or those questioning
the official version of global warming have been dubbed as akin to 'Holocaust
Deniers' and if you question any aspect of the official version of the Nazi concentration
camps you can now be jailed by the Thought Police.
Zundel, an elderly pacifist, was illegally abducted from his home in the United
States, thrown in a Canadian jail and eventually extradited to Germany to be jailed
again for the maximum five years by a kangaroo court masquerading (barely) as
the arbiter of 'justice'. What was Zundel's 'crime'? Differing from the official
history of what happened in the Nazi camps. He was, in other words, jailed for
this thoughts, his views.
Even his lawyer, Sylvia Stolz, has now been jailed
for three-and-a-half years, and banned from practising law for five years, for
having the same thoughts and views as her client.
All this in 'free'
What happens in fascist states is that the verdict and the sentence
are agreed before the trial or the evidence. That is what happened with Zundel
and that is what happens in the 'justice' and 'human rights' system in Canada,
as we shall see. What we need to understand before all freedom is extinguished
is that you don't have to agree with what someone says to defend their right to
say it. Indeed, you are defending your right to say and think what you choose
because unless everyone has free speech and free thought then no-one does. You
can't be free to think and say what you believe if someone is deciding what you
can think and say.
That is not freedom of speech or thought - it is the freedom
to agree with what the Big Brother state allows you to think and say.
Voltaire is claimed to have said: 'I disapprove of what you say, but I will defend
to the death your right to say it.' Why? Because your freedom is my freedom. So
what is happening in Canada and elsewhere is an attack on the freedom of everyone
and what is happening is truly, truly, staggering in what is claimed - hilariously
- to be a 'free society'."
Ouch David! These
barbs must have stung 'freedom loving' people wherever they be! We hope so. Now
get off your ***** knees and fight once more for your fundamental freedoms of
thought, speech and association.
Write to your political representative expressing
your outrage at what is happening here in Australia and to all who have already
paid a price of persecution and prison for you to retain your freedoms.

GREENHOUSE CUTS WOULD LAND US IN THE MIDDLE

Greenhouse cuts would land us in the Middle Ages, says Labor sceptic

to anthropogenic greenhouse gases," he says. He also says the temperature on Mars

IS THE GLOBE COOLING? IT IS ALL SO CONFUSINGDennis
Behreandt, 2/1/08: JBS
January 2, 2008:
You wouldn't know it from the dramatic, tearful pronouncements
of doom that emanated from the UN's recently concluded climate summit in Bali.
And you would get no idea from the Bush administration's much celebrated about-face
acceptance of global warming at that summit. Nor would Al Gore be likely to let
on. But the really, really inconvenient truth is that, for six years now, there
has been no global warming.
According to former
long-time BBC science correspondent and editor David Whitehouse, global warming,
in contradiction to the current theories predicting ever-increasing temperatures,
has stopped. "The fact is that the global temperature of 2007 is statistically
the same as 2006 as well as every year since 2001,"
Whitehouse noted in an
article in New Statesman. "Global warming has, temporarily or permanently,
ceased. Temperatures across the world are not increasing as they should according
to the fundamental theory behind global warming - the greenhouse effect." In Whitehouse's
estimation, "something else is happening...." Maybe it's global cooling.
According to the Washington Times, 2007 was noteworthy for the number of
"record low temperatures ... being set all over the world." In Buenos Aires, the
Times recounts, "snow fell for the first time since the year 1918. In Peru,
200 people died from the cold" and "the Peruvian government declared a state of
emergency" amid a rash of cold-related crop failures and respiratory ailments.
Similar problems afflicted the northern hemisphere with cold snaps in
the Spring destroying 95 percent of South Carolina's peach crop and 90 percent
of North Carolina's apple harvest. According to the Times, the cold trend is continuing:
"On Dec. 4, in Seoul, Korea, the temperature was a record minus 5 degrees
Celsius. Nov. 24, in Meacham, Ore., the minimum temperature was 12 degrees Fahrenheit
colder than the previous record low set in 1952. The Canadian government warns
that this winter is likely to be the coldest in 15 years."
Despite this, David Deming, the author of the Times article and a geophysicist
with the National Centre for Policy Analysis, says true believers in global warming
will not be swayed by any amount of evidence that runs counter to their preferred
"Nothing creates cognitive dissonance in the mind of a true believer,"
he writes. "In 2005, a Canadian Greenpeace representative explained 'global warming
can mean colder, it can mean drier, it can mean wetter.'
other words, all weather variations are evidence for global warming." "I can't
make this stuff up," Deming sarcastically concludes.
