3 September 2010 Thought for the Week:
• So far from nationality being the cause of the world-wide unrest, it is sovereignty, whether national or international, which is resented, and that to replace national sovereignty by international sovereignty is to still further complicate and exaggerate the evil against which the whole world is rebelling. (Internationalists) are not really interested in removing the cause of complaint at all, they are merely interested in making it impossible for complaints to become effective.
• Society at the present time is a battle ground of two fundamentally opposed ideas and the future of society (now civilisation) likely to be determined by which of those ideas shall prevail. One of these ideas is the breaking down of all differences, social and national, and the setting up of a world state. And evidence to the contrary offers no evidence or argument to the Internationalist. The idea is impervious to the assault of fact.
• The mentality which is attracted by the Internationalist idea is incapable of distinguishing between numbers, things, and individuals. It is a type of mentality which is fostered and ultimately becomes inseparable from people who deal with nothing but figures, and is, the reason why the banker in particular is fundamentally unsuited for the position of reorganiser of the world.
• No banker as such, has any knowledge of large undertakings. He thinks he has, because he deals with large figures, and he mistakes the dealing with large figures as being equivalent to dealing with large numbers of things and people. ''Can like be equated to like, by any necromancy of gold?" You might put the matter another way by enquiring whether there was any similarity between a Beethoven Sonata and a bottle of wood alcohol in New York, because you can buy either of them for 5s.

PORT LINCOLN MAYOR PUBLICLY VOTES INFORMALLY
Port Lincoln Mayor Peter Davis publicly voted informally in both the House of Representatives and the Senate elections – and below are his reasons why.
1. No candidate has given an unequivocal guarantee to defend our
cultural and religious origins: That is, the British Constitutional
Monarchical system of Parliament, our National flag and our Christian
- - Signed: P.W. Davis, Pt. Lincoln S.A. 5606
WHERE WILL WE GET THE MONEY FROM? ASKS NARACOORTE MAYOR
Mayor of the Naracoorte Lucindale Council, South Australia Mr. Ken Grundy writes: The Weekly Times of August 18th reports the grim situation facing Local Government where an estimated $31 million shortfall exists as Shires attempt to fund repairs to infrastructure including roads and bridges.
Councillors face the annual balancing act where the bulk of expenditure needs to be financed from rates. This year many have increased rate revenue by 12% and some individual ratepayers have been angered by their increases of between 30% and 40%.
As Mayor of the Naracoorte Lucindale Council, I certainly see the need for a change. As the Global Financial Crisis approached, the Rudd Government decided to stimulate the economy as a means of minimising the impact on Australia. Millions of dollars were made available to individuals, schools and Local Government, to name a few. Recipients were delighted and soon put the money to ‘work’ in their communities.
The Coalition parties in Opposition offered some criticism about the amount of funds but generally agreed that some level of stimulus spending was necessary. Like any stimulating drug, the enjoyment has been followed by the hangover. In this case the enjoyment of spending has been followed with the bill. We have the bill to pay because all of the stimulus funds were borrowed as an interest bearing debt.
The Nation’s Bank
Money - backed by productive capacity of the Nation!
Just imagine the benefit the stimulus money would have had, if it was sourced from the RBA on the generous terms available! That same amount of money could have been issued debt free. It is worth stressing that any increase in the money supply needs to be appropriately backed by the productive capacity of the nation.
Local Government is always battling the equation of services supplied and rate revenue. Meeting the rules of compliancy imposed by other levels of Government is a cost which consumes a good deal of rates. If only the politicians would exercise the powers of the RBA to direct a new stream of finance to Councils, Local Government could flourish.

AND SO TOO IN NEW ZEALAND !
To the Editor, New Zealand Herald 25-8-10:
I almost wept at reading of John McKearney’s and others “Save Our Farms” campaign. They have my complete support.

A ‘HUNG PARLIAMENT’ MR. REED? DOES THAT MEAN…
by James Reed:
And my, how the ruling elites intermesh: “our” Governor General Quentin Bryce (a lady of course) may have a conflict of interest because her daughter is married to Labor “faceless man” Bill Shorten who, with other “faceless men” organised for Kevin Rudd to receive a knock on the door at midnight, as “Mad Monk” Abbott put it.
What a truly sickening mess our society has become in its plunge downwards. My only satisfaction is that there is still enough guts left in the remaining Australian people to throw a spanner in the works for a while I say “remaining Australian people” after chewing on Department of Immigration and Citizenship population estimates for 2007-2008.
Quoting from Endeavour magazine, August 2010, p.3:
These figures refer to “first-generation” migrants; that is, only people born overseas. Endeavour says: “with the outright numbers of “non-traditional” migrants rising, and with the percentage of “non-traditional” births here exceeding those of the founding population, the core ethnic group of the Australian nation is shrinking year by year. Endeavour believes that Anglos will be a minority before too long: my guess is that it has already happened.
Elections in the future for ruling Chinese and Indian MPs are just around the corner. Did YOU put “Reduce Immigration” on your democracy slip?
SITTING HERE WATCHING THE WORLD FALL APART
by James Reed
Sharon Astyk, “Things Fall Apart Slowly” (Science Blogs, 12/8/2010) is a smart lady with a lot of good old-fashioned home-spun wisdom. She says that when a society can no longer afford to maintain basic infrastructure such as schools, roads, libraries, street lights, etc., that society is heading for collapse.
Across the USA the decline continues, with public schools cutting down hours to save money, transit systems cutting services to save money and cities switching off street lights for periods of time, to also save money. I followed the links to check this: to the New York Times (“Governments Go to Extremes as the Downturn Wears On” 6 August, 2010).
The more centralised and complex things become
TRIGGER WORDS FOR ME - BOB KATTER’S HEROES
by Betty Luks
Another person mentioned in the film was Professor Giblin, a Canberran ‘economic adviser and planner’. In the “Australian Quarterly” September 1943, this man bluntly said that “there must come a time when somebody must decide what is a suitable job for a man to do, and he must do it.” Not all the Soviets were in Russia!
But why didn’t film producers dig deeper?
Voters will become disillusioned - yet again!
Back to Katter’s heroes: 'Red Ted' Theodore - Wikipedia:
'Black Jack' McEwen - I can remember Eric Butler saying he helped to campaign for McEwen in Victoria in the very early days. Wikipedia has the following on McEwen:
That must have been after McEwen had been ‘taken up on the high mountain and shown all the kingdoms of the world…’ and found he liked the view.
At the time Eric Butler commented: “This is another classical example of (Menzies’) “practical Socialism”. Why don’t Mr. McEwen, Mr. Menzies and many other members of the “Opposition” at Canberra openly join the Socialists and cease humbugging the people?”
The Strangling of the People's Bank
I have to say - so much for Mr. Katter’s heroes!
AND NOW TO THE GREENS
If the Greens were genuinely concerned about the environment their first target would be the Money Power, the waste of our resources and the nation’s ever-expanding financial debt.
There is nothing new in the twin problems of a people’s financial debt-slavery and soil erosion. The story of money is one long unbroken history of debt-slavery, corruption, waste, wars and soil-erosion or man-made deserts.
VITAMIN-C-a-DAY KEEPS CANCER AWAY
by James Reed
On the downside, a doctor from Imperial College, London has proposed that people who eat junk food at fast-food joints shall be given free statin drugs to counteract the cholesterol effects. (www.naturalnews.com 13 August 2010)
In fact the good doctor doesn’t want statin drugs to be prescription drugs at all, wanting them to be seen as a “supplement”. Will you have one lump of statin or two with your Mcheartattack burger and flies (oops, I mean ‘fries’). Don’t worry about side effects like kidney and liver disease – just drive in and eat your fill. What next? Mobile funerals?
MUSLIM WOMAN ORDERED TO REMOVE FULL BURQA IN COURT
The news that a Perth judge “has ordered that a Muslim woman must remove a full burqa (niqab) while giving evidence before a jury in a fraud case” has proved of interest overseas.
The BBC headlines read: “Australia judge orders witness to remove niqab in court” - An Australian judge has ruled that a Muslim woman must remove her full veil while giving evidence before a jury in a fraud case. The judge in Perth said she did not consider it appropriate that the witness appear with her face covered.
The prosecution said the woman - identified only as Tasneem - would feel uncomfortable without her niqab. But the defence team argued the jury should be able to watch her facial expressions. Lawyers said it would affect the way she presented her evidence.
Judge Shauna Deane ruled the woman should remove the niqab, though stressed she was not making a decision which should stand as a legal precedent. It was simply her ruling in these circumstances, she said. The judge also rejected the comparison with jurisdictions elsewhere, saying they were irrelevant because this was an Australian and not an Islamic court.
SHOULD ALEXANDER DOWNER WEAR A BURQA?
lexander Downer Foreign Affairs minister from 1996-2007 sees the difference between the French and British positions as one of an “organic” view of society where “individuals… act alone”, where “individuals in a society are supreme”. (“Don’t Ban the Burqa” The Advertiser 26/7/2010, p.21) So, does it come down to the old battle between social holism and radical individualism? I think not. Downer goes on to defend the clearest expression of women’s subservience to sharia law, the burqa, paradoxically on freedom of expression grounds.
The issue is one about multiculturalism vs individual liberty, but in this case, the liberty of women to be equal with men. The burqa is an expression of women’s subservience under Islam and this is quite incompatible with our Christian traditions of freedom. Downer has put the argument back to front in his bid to be ultra-politically correct. I would suggest a burqa with fishnet stockings for your next outing in the streets of Adelaide Alex.

HIRSI ALI TELLS IT LIKE IT IS ON REFUGEEISM
by Chris Knight
For that matter, nations should withdraw from a whole web of similar UN conventions that have strangled our freedom and sovereignty in the name of internationalism and one-world cosmopolitanism.
