16 October 2009 Thought for the Week:
Today we but repeat the mistakes of the past; however today it is not merely disaster to a small city or state and its way of life, but with the existing refinement of that which can only be described as the money swindle as it was conducted in ancient times by the trapezitae at their bench in the market place... Those lines of Solon say enough:
But of themselves in their folly the men of the city are willing
A further couplet indicates the meaning of "our great city to wreck".
Great men ruin a city: for lack of understanding
These lines written after the seizure by Peisistratus of the Tyranny at Athens would indicate that the same Peisistratus had the assistance in his rise to power of those former great landowning families of Attica who had been drawn into the schemes of the foreign money masters to their undoing... These landowners had forgotten their duty towards their own people.
Fascinated by strange luxuries and the stranger talk of the money men, the trapezitae… They forgot that in the absolute analysis they themselves were but stewards of a higher power. Lacking understanding, above all, of the true nature of this money as being above all their own law towards the facilitation of the exchanges amongst themselves and their people, they had been lead astray from their duty.
By conniving with the bankers and their protégées the new manufacturers, to drive their own people off the land into the cities, and into the industries rapidly speeding up from the new money economy, they forgot that in their capacity as rulers, the whole land was theirs in trust to their people, and that the people therefore were expectant of them to be their guides and shepherds…”
- - David Astle in “The Babylonian Woe” 1975
WHAT OF AUSTRALIA’S FUTURE IN ALL THIS ?
by Betty Luks
Watching America, the most productive, energetic nation in history, going through its own financial and economic death throes is not a pretty sight. But what of those who, behind the scenes, pull the strings of the puppet politicians and business ‘leaders’?
If the real history of this group is anything to go by - and where we are to look for answers – this parasitical group is already settling comfortably upon another group of host nations, to feed off of them. When the time comes and history is once more repeated they will leave the ‘dying host’ and find others to suck dry.
Robert Fisk gives us some clues in “The demise of the dollar – report” 6th October 2009:“In a graphic illustration of the new world order, Arab states have launched secret moves with China, Russia and France to stop using the US currency for oil trading. Iran announced late last month that its foreign currency reserves would henceforth be held in euros rather than dollars.
Where Will The Australian Dollar Go Next?
A UNION IS COMING OUT FIGHTING ?
by Betty Luks
Under the headlines: “Hansonite protest out of left field” 22/9/ 2009 Malcolm Colless in The Australian reports:
The influx of Chinese money on to the Australian housing market follows a relaxation by the federal government last March of its rules on foreign companies and temporary residents. Liberal Party officials say uncertainty about this and the effect of Chinese investment in Australian industries are surfacing during the process for preselecting candidates for the next federal election, particularly in Victoria.
Union launch against Australia signing free trade agreement with China:
The campaign launch by the secretary of the union, Dean Mighell, had the support of three lower house independents, Bob Katter, Tony Windsor and Rob Oakeshott, who argued that the government should give the parliament a bigger role in evaluating the merits of free trade deals… (Because4 of illness Senator Barnaby Joyce was not at the launch). Mighell says a union-commissioned report on the FTA, titled The China Advantage, is aimed at sparking public debate on its effect on the livelihood of Australians. It has sent the report to other unions across the country seeking support and has established a "save Aussie jobs" website to drive the campaign.
"Astonishingly, there is currently very little public debate," Mighell says. "It is a social-justice matter that all Australians should be concerned about." He says the dangers posed by the FTA would not only be a threat to jobs "but also (affect) the employability of our children".”
Comment: Yes, it is astonishing Mr. Mighell ! But you seem to have been around a fair while, yet it has taken you and the Union movement quite some time to wake up to the fact that in the plans of the Trapezitae, Mammon, or whatever is the current term for this mysterious group, Australia is destined to be a colony of China.
JEREMY LEE 'S 2001 WARNING
Let me remind the reader of Jeremy Lee’s warning to the Australian people eight years ago. On Target 28/9/2001:
Putting the kindest interpretation on it, these 18 companies, with combined sales in 1999 of $2,000 for every living man, woman and child on earth, are not really concerned about the freedom and prosperity of the Australian people! They simply want to clear the decks for their own continued expansion.
International Trade about power politics:
With all eyes on America, little coverage was given to the just-concluded ASEAN meeting in Hanoi, where 12 nations - Australia, New Zealand, Singapore, Thailand, Malaysia, the Philippines, Brunei, Indonesia, Cambodia, Myanmar (formerly Burma) Laos and Vietnam - agreed to form a Closer Economic Partnership initiative " (The Press, Christchurch, NZ, 19/9/01)…”

MEETING NOTICE FROM ECONOMIC REFORM ASSOCIATION
Prof. Michael Hudson a Distinguished Research Professor of Economics at the University of Missouri, Kansas City (UMKC) is to speak in Adelaide, South Australia.
The title of his address is: “Recovering from the Neoliberal Disaster”
EMISSIONS TRADING ANOTHER 'PONZI SCHEME ?
Liberal leader Malcolm Turnbull (formerly of Goldman Sachs banking) “is facing a rebellion from the Liberal Party's West Australian branch, which is demanding he drop his plan to negotiate with the Rudd government on an emissions trading scheme before the UN summit on climate change to be held in Copenhagen in December. (The Australian 6/10/09) The looming revolt in Western Australia this Saturday comes as divisions on the ETS spread to the Coalition front bench…
The first item on the agenda at (next) Saturday's West Australian Liberal Party state conference demands a rethink on the ETS, urging Mr Turnbull to "delay any negotiation with the federal Labor government on the design or introduction of any emissions trading scheme until after the climate change conference in Copenhagen".
The motion from the state party's influential rural policy committee, which appears to have wide support among the West Australian Liberals, further declares: "We also ask that any future decision to introduce an ETS be in line with the actions taken by Australia's major trading partners." The motion follows shadow parliamentary secretary Mitch Fifield's call that any vote be deferred until after the Copenhagen conference.
All is not well in the Liberal party camp. The West Australian branch motion comes amid overwhelming opposition from WA Liberal backbenchers to negotiating with the government on the ETS ahead of Copenhagen…
Veteran Liberal Wilson Tuckey predicted that Liberal senators who ignored the wishes of the West Australian party would be putting themselves at risk. "It would be a courageous senator who did not take serious note of what the state conference believed," he said.
He said that Mr Turnbull's position on the ETS issue defied logic. "Turnbull knows the Rudd scheme is going to destroy thousands of jobs, and put people out of business," he said. "But his solution is to keep the ETS and weaken its effect - well if you are a believer in the proposition emanating from the carbon emissions camp, why would you do that?'”
AUSTRALIA 'S MIGRATION MADNESS
by Brian Simpson
Immigration and refugee lobby groups across the country were ecstatic by this news, for the more refugees pouring into Australia, the more “moral” we allegedly are. Nevertheless, refugee numbers are only a drop in the ocean compared to legal migration numbers which are literally choking Australia to death.
Australia has one of the highest population growth rates in the world – at 1.9% only Mexico and Turkey are growing faster. The new “immigration revolution” has pushed our population to 22.8 million. Ten years ago it was projected that our population would not reach 23 million until 2021. 60% of this increase is due to immigration and immigration is primarily coloured immigration. Asians and Middle Easterners. Permanent immigration is now 219,098 per annum. Temporary immigration is about 657,124 people per year – most of them will never return.
Probably one million per year:
Andrew Markus, co-author of “Australia’s Immigration Revolution”, and I recall a critic of Professor Blainey, has said that the growth of long-term residents without citizenship raises identity problems when people have loyalties to multiple countries (The Age, August 31, 2009). “That’s a fundamental shift…the way we define belongingness and the way we define cohesion, we have to look at that.” And: “The magnitude of change is breathtaking in the character of our cities”.
Don’t expect any critique of immigration numbers though. In Melbourne, immigration has meant that it is increasingly hard to get rental accommodation and housing demand is high, keeping the housing industry happy. Indeed, Australia post–World War II has been essentially a gift to the housing and building industry, making its ruling elites super-rich at the expense of the destruction of our nation.
Immigration needs to be seen for what it really is: a political weapon used by the elites in demographic warfare against Anglo-Australia.
ERGAS ON EVIDENCE, MORALITY AND POLICY
by James Reed
Ergas says that today “Supporting such a policy…would invite well deserved howls of derision”. But why? As I see it, only because the elites have decided that humanity should be non-white and that the white race, starting with the Nordics, should die out. Hence the war of political correctness against our race.
THE 'JOYS OF MULTIRACIALISM IN BRITIAN
by James Reed
Then again, other British Islamic extremists have been busy plotting to blow up jets in mid-air (International Express, 15/9/09, p.10). They were caught but who knows when such fanatics will succeed? And an immigration baby boom is already costing Britain one billion pounds just to provide places for migrant children at school.
EMERGENCY THIS BOOK WILL SAVE YOUR LIFE !
by John Steele:
Strauss’ book did not tell a long-term survivalist like me anything new, but it was interesting to see such a book on the best sellers list. Kurt Saxon and other members of the US survivalist movement get a relatively respectful treatment. Perhaps this is a sign of the times, that we are sensing that the end of this order is coming.
It need not be the end of the world as we know it, but the chance to rebuild a genuinely human world out of the sterile mechanism of global capitalism. Like in the book version of The Lord of the Rings (not covered in the film), the Hobbits return home to see The Shire in the grip of the great cancer of modernism, destruction; and we too need to fight this final battle.
THE ISLAMISATION OF EUROPE: BE ALARMED
by Peter Ewer
By 2050 one fifth of all Europeans will be Muslims and at present 5% of Europeans are Muslims. About 10% of the population of France is Muslim.
For Downer this demographic change is inevitable and in any case, most European Muslims are moderates. Further, Downer seems happy that Australia is moving away from its Anglo-Celtic roots: that ethnic group now constitutes only 65% of the Australian population. All of this is a recipe for social disaster. It goes against the grain of human experience to expect that all of this will have a happy ending. The Downers of the world will be proven wrong yet again, but at a terrible cost.
CANADIAN WRITERS WANT PROBE INTO HUMAN RIGHTS COMMISSION
Two writers appeared before the justice committee on Monday, repeating their call for a repeal of a controversial section of the Human Rights Act, and asking for a probe into the Canadian Human Rights Commission.
Ezra Levant and Mark Steyn are also calling for the elimination of Section 13 of the Canadian Human Rights Act, which allows the commission to investigate allegations of hate speech. "I think a very practical, doable thing for this committee and for Parliament would be to repeal Section 13 of the Human Rights Act altogether, to leave any hate speech prosecutions to the Criminal Code with its proper checks and balances, and frankly, to bring in a forensic audit to the Human Rights Commission to examine the allegations that I have made," Levant told the commission.
Levant is alleging that employees of the commission belong to neo-Nazi organizations, an accusation he made in July in a National Post column. Some committee members, like New Democrat MP Joe Comartin, seemed incredulous at the accusation.
Levant was subject of a complaint to the Alberta Human Rights Commission under the act for reprinting the provocative Danish Muhammad cartoons in his magazine in 2006. He published the controversial cartoons depicting the Prophet Muhammad in the now defunct Western Standard, arguing that they were "the central fact in the largest news story of the month."
A complaint was launched by the Canadian Islamic Congress against Steyn for an article he wrote titled "The Future Belongs to Islam" and posted on the magazine's website in October 2006. The article, an excerpt of a book authored by Steyn, talks about Islam being a threat to North American institutions and values. It used statistics to show higher birth rates plus immigration mean Muslims will outnumber followers of other religions in Western Europe. Both complaints were eventually dismissed.
Truth is no defence
Liberal MP Ujjal Dosanjh asked why they were recommending the abolition of Section 13, instead of amending it. "So you believe there then should be nothing between absolute free speech and the Criminal Code provisions?" he asked.
