27 January 2010 Thought for the Week:
The statement by St. Paul "the love of money is the root of all kinds of evil" can be paraphrased to read: “For the love of money (Mammon) i.e., the preference for, in terms of personal advancement, above all other considerations, is the root of all kinds of evil.”
U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission. Pyramid Schemes:
The fraudsters behind a pyramid scheme may go to great lengths to make the program look like a legitimate multi-level marketing program. But despite their claims to have legitimate products or services to sell, these fraudsters simply use money coming in from new recruits to pay off early stage investors. But eventually the pyramid will collapse. At some point the schemes get too big, the promoter cannot raise enough money from new investors to pay earlier investors, and many people lose their money…

MCDONALD’S-MUNCHING SLAVES OF MAMMON

Darius Guppy observed:
Western democracy’s ‘Dirty Little Secret’
I have been looking deeper into the Derivatives Ponzi scam – and a blatant fraudulent scam it was! It was an outright fraud, a deliberate criminal scheme, and yet, to my knowledge, not one banker or employee - other than the Englishman Nick Leeson for his role in the collapse of Barings Bank years ago - has been gaoled for his/her involvement and the ill-gotten gains from it. How can this be so? Why aren’t the banksters who devised the Ponzi scam languishing in rotten prisons? And what of the politicians who 'propped them up’ with our taxes when the scheme came tumbling down (deliberately planned?) around them. I have read that the debts remaining, after the scam imploded, are 200-300 times greater than the world’s annual gross domestic product and ‘probably, in order of magnitude, the biggest fraud in history’.
Carbon Emissions Scheme another Ponzi?
HOW DID THEY DO IT?

“Apocalypse No!” also a ‘must’ featuring Lord Christopher Monckton who exposes the ‘climategate’ scam and push for world government. $10.00 posted.
TO LIE TO CHEAT TO STEAL IS OKAY - ‘FOR THE CAUSE’
We should thank Lord Monckton for the brilliant job he did in exposing the real intent and agenda behind the Copenhagen Conference ‘street theatre’. But do take note of how these people work. They have an agenda to push through and that agenda has nothing to do with truth or facts.
Those who have some idea of Marxist/Communist philosophy know that to lie, to cheat, to steal is ‘moral’ as long as it promotes Marxism/Communism. The ‘disciples of global warming’ have an agenda and that is what matters. Interestingly, Lord Monckton referred to the large numbers of Communist flags displayed by many ‘environmentalists’ at Copenhagen.
SON OF CLIMATEGATE - ANOTHER SCAM?
The new climate change scandal by Anil Dawar, Daily Express, 18 January 2010. Source: https://www.express.co.uk/posts/view/152422/
The-new-climate-change-scandal “Fresh doubts were cast over controversial global warming theories yesterday after a major climate change argument was discredited. The International Panel on Climate Change was forced to admit its key claim that Himalayan glaciers would melt by 2035 was lifted from a 1999 magazine article. The report was based on an interview with a little-known Indian scientist who has since said his views were “speculation” and not backed up by research.
Former railway engineer with PhD in economics – and a huge vested interest!
A multi-million pound ‘industry’
Yesterday, Professor Murari Lal who oversaw the chapter on glaciers in the IPCC report, said: “If Hasnain says officially that he never asserted this, or that it is a wrong presumption, then I will recommend that the assertion about Himalayan glaciers be removed from future IPCC assessments.”
CENTRALISATION OF POWER IS MORE LIKE IT!
by Betty Luks
He refers to an article in the Australian Financial Review (AFR) 21/1/2010, where the Attorney-General, Robert McClelland, confirms “the inclusion of local government in the Constitution is one of the four proposals currently being worked on by the Government. The other three relate to a republic, recognition of indigenous people and cooperative federalism. The Attorney also indicated that the Government is looking to pursue these changes in the next parliamentary term.”
Mr. Lake sees this as positive news and writes
There you have it fellow Australian – but don’t you also ‘smell a rat’ as I do?
But nowhere do I see mention of bringing the criminal banks to account! Nowhere do I read that the corrupt financial system will be ‘reformed’. To be forewarned is to be forearmed!
POLITICAL REFORMS IN LOCAL AND STATE GOVERNMENTS
Business SA has called for political reforms in State and Local Government. The plan to replace present Councils with Regional or Super Councils tends to occur quite frequently. In the SE, it would mean closing the seven Councils in favour of a single body, probably like SELGA based in Mount Gambier. Such a move would completely remove the concept of ‘local’ from what we call Local Government.
To operate such a large area, there would need to be several levels of administration beneath the Super Council to manage the to and fro of community requests. This administration would be unelected and more costly than having Councillors.
If Local Government is the easiest to control, I ask why would anyone wish to replace it with a more remote, centralist structure? I support Business SA in their suggestion that adequate funding accompany all responsibilities transferred from the State to Councils. The State realises that we can administer the services for less cost and so encourage the transfer. However, failure to continue the funding past a couple of years leaves the ratepayer having to shoulder the burden.
Nominations for the position of Mayor and Councillors for the next Council will close in September for a November poll. I urge members of the community to consider nominating and all will be welcome to sit in the gallery to experience Council procedure if they desire.

PETER SPENCER’S HUNGER STRIKE AND PROPERTY RIGHTS
It’s okay to ‘bail out’ the corrupt banksters with government ‘handouts’ but it is not okay to compensate Australia’s farmers who have had their property rights taken away from them by the same governments. John Roskam and Alan Moran of the Institute of Public Affairs brought this matter to the attention of its readership.
“New research released today by the IPA highlights that in New South Wales alone there are at least a dozen state government statutes and regulations that take away land owners’ rights to use their property. These total at least 700 pages.
“State governments are violating the basic right to property of thousands of landowners across the country. Private property rights are human rights just as much as freedom of speech and freedom of religion,” said Mr Roskam.
“It is a fundamental principle that property owners should be compensated when they are stopped from using their land as they choose.
“The reported comments of Minister for Finance and Deregulation Lindsay Tanner that ‘the commonwealth would face massive expense if it compensated farmers’ reveals the potential billions of dollars of property value which has been appropriated by these laws,” said Mr Roskam. (emphasis added...ed)
The statues and regulations that take away rural landowners’ rights to use their property in NSW are:
Property confiscation by state governments is not confined to rural areas. For more than sixty years the IPA has been monitoring the many laws which intrude on property rights. In urban areas, heritage laws and planning restrictions prevent property owners from using their property as they choose.
WHO SAID A MAN’S HOME IS HIS CASTLE?
"With the building works nearly over, Julian and Samantha Mosedale and their three children were looking forward to moving back into the home of their dreams. But their hopes have turned into a nightmare because a group of Romanians occupied the property over Christmas.
The unwanted guests have changed the locks at the three-bedroom terrace house and moved in their own furniture. Mr Mosedale, an illustrator, and his wife, a catalogue manager, both 45, had moved out of the house in Tottenham, North London, in July 2007 for extensive structural and renovation work. They rented another property and regularly visited the £285,000 house to oversee progress. But, after spending Christmas visiting relatives in Essex, they returned to the house on January 3 to find the squatters installed.
'We are hard-working citizens yet get treated like criminals when our home is stolen. This whole thing is making me feel constantly sick. All we want to do is get on with our lives.
When the family questioned the squatters' right to be in Britain, police told them that they were being 'racist'. Yesterday, the couple obtained a county court order giving the squatters 24 hours - until 2.15pm today - to leave. But Mr Mosedale fears they will not give in easily.
He and his wife are also worried that a drawn-out battle would exhaust their savings. They had planned to move back into the house in March. Mrs Mosedale said: 'We were in the process of creating our dream home and it has been ruined.
FROM HAITI – ‘THE NEWS BEHIND THE NEWS’
As readers will know, the internet came into its own before and during the Copenhagen Conference. News was presented from various angles and the mainline media could not censor it. If you have internet access and want to get news of what is happening in Haiti from another source go to:
Look at Video: Haiti Report by TeleSur's Reed Lindsay, Now Translated to English, 19, January 2010.
Update: In contrast, CNN and the English language networks have largely been doing a dreadful job covering the crisis and recovery in Haiti. Ansel Herz offers an informed critique via his blog, Mediahacker: “Tell CNN to Stop Hyping Fears of Violence in Haiti” and shows an example of yellow journalism being practiced by CNN this week.
“It occurred to me this morning that this is the first time since the dawn of cable news that during a big international story that I don't have CNN or the other TV news networks turned on as I go about my day. The shift has already happened in which the Internet reporting has surpassed what poses as journalism on the big networks, and any video clip they broadcast that does turn out to add to the story quickly gets posted to the Internet anyway.
