On Target

3 December 2010 Thought for the Week:

Scrambled Social Credit: Policy is always more important than method: The Social Credit movement in its early days attracted a number of Socialists who did not understand Social Credit policy, but thought that the technical proposals could make Socialism workable. With the publication of the perverted proposals of John Maynard Keynes, they joyfully transferred their allegiance, landing us in the very antithesis of Social Credit – Monopoly Socialism dominated by the institutions of Finance.

- - The Social Crediter 7th September 1968.

Freedom - the Issue: "... it should be plain that the fundamental issue we face today is not materialistic. It is not a question of whether people should have more food, better homes or a higher standard of living. That is an issue, but it is not the central issue. Economic security can be purchased at too high a price as the people of Germany (and Russia and Poland and Hungary and China, etc., etc…) found to their cost under the Nazi regime. Economic security without freedom in all its fullness would be little better than slavery.
The real issue is human freedom – freedom to live our lives with a minimum of interference and domination. That is the very cornerstone of democracy. And it is around that question of freedom that the conflict between democracy and totalitarianism is raging, for there is no place for freedom in the essentially materialistic concept of the Supreme State doctrine of the various brands of socialism. Thus we find the very core of the matter is not materialistic but spiritual – and human freedom, itself a non-material and spiritual attribute, is fundamental to Christian teaching regarding Man’s relation to Man and Man’s relationship to God
If I have given you a forbidding picture, it is because we face an ugly situation… And each one of us has to accept full responsibility for the manner in which we personally meet the inescapable challenge which confronts us…”

IT’S NOT A GAME - PASTOR TO HANG FOR APOSTASY

by Betty Luks
The news that an Iranian Christian pastor has been sentenced to be hanged for ‘apostasy’ has jolted me out of my everyday comfort zone. Wondering how I would measure up to this man’s courageous stand for his faith caused me to critically look at myself. In doing so I was reminded of Geoffrey Dobbs’ paper “The Church and The Trinity” where he wrote of the ancient heresies that, as he observed, “seem to have scarcely changed at all over the centuries; they have taken different forms but their essential errors remain the same”. One of the heresies is that of Sabellianism or modalism, and, Geoffrey writes: “… a sure sign of it is the selection of the most trivial meaning of the word persona to denote an actor’s mask, thus retrogressing our faith’s image of God to that of a Monarchical Jehovah, merely play-acting with his people by appearing to them in different guises. The practical significance of such a belief as it works out in human affairs is catastrophic”.

The practical significance?
Does Dr. Dobbs mean, ‘as each Christian practises, applies, his faith in human affairs', the implication being that Christians themselves have to guard against ‘merely play-acting’ their faith in human affairs? Surely this is why we must always examine our own selves – to ensure we are not merely ‘playing a game’ or ‘acting out’ our faith.

Pastor Grigor-Scott asks: Please continue to uphold our Brother in prayer, and sign this petition which names other Iranian Brethren including Pastor Youcef's wife, Fatemeh Pasandideh; Pastor Behrouz and his wife, Fatemeh Kojouri Tork; Mehdi and Mina Kerbalayi and their mother, Nahid; Brother Afshin, Sister Mahsa, Brother Mid, Sister Nasrin Karaj, and Pastor Behnam Irani Shiraz who are all incarcerated for the faith or released on bail, and email or Fax the Supreme Leader of the Islamic Republic, His Excellency Ayatollah Sayed Ali Khamenei, + 98 21 774 2228; His Excellency the President Dr. Mahmoud Ahmadinejad, Fax: + 98 21 649 5880, and the Minister of Foreign Affairs, His Excellency Mr. Manouchehr Mottaki, Fax: + 98 21 390 1999, requesting the release and remission of all charges against Pastors Youcef Nadarkhani, Behrouz Sadegh-Khandjan, Behnam Irani Shiraz, and other Christians and prisoners of conscience in Iran.  


THIS YOU’VE JUST GOT TO WATCH !

Irish Minister Suffers Humiliating Take-Down: This fellow seems to have that rare (these days) loyalty and concern for his people, the Irish people. He displays great moral courage and singleness of purpose. He is like a breath of fresh, clean, invigorating air - so good after the foul, putrid party-politically-correct smell that usually comes across the airways !

DON’T FORGETTHE BANKER’ here:
From Bill Daly of New Zealand - "Faith, hope and charity, but greater than all these is banking":- A quote from the film “1492: Conquest of Paradise”, which brings us to Columbus and C.H. Douglas in "Programme for the Third World War" Chapter VIII:

"The curious myopia (possibly resulting from the exoteric interpretation of Genesis which was supposed to indicate the date of creation as about B.C. 4000) which regards history as the events subsequently to the landing of Norman William, with his select body of Jews, A.D. 1066, enables the statement that "Christopher Columbus discovered America at the end of the fifteenth century" to be accepted as accurate. Apart from the fact that Columbus never saw America, the mainland of which was "discovered" by John Cabot, who sailed from Bristol in 1497, there is strong, reason to believe that various Scandinavian peoples had fairly constant intercourse with the North American Continent hundreds, if not thousands, of years earlier. Their traditional name for it was Markland.

"There are, however, certain features in regard to the rediscovery of America which are worth attention. Christopher Columbus was a Jew, and John Cabot, although his ship and crew were English, was a Venetian. But the extraordinary and significant fact is that there was in Bristol at that time a secret Jewish community "who handed on their tradition by word of mouth" (Lord Melchett: Thy Neighbour, p. 90). subsequently, and it is not without significance also that the original British settlers were followed by a wave of Dutch, who for the most part remained on the Atlantic seaboard as traders and bankers.

"One of the real effects of the American War of Independence was that although a facade of the original settlers of British stock held most of the titular offices of Government, the control of development and policy rapidly passed to a tiny Dutch minority (not to be confused with the much larger German element frequently called Dutch in the United States by a corruption of the word Deutsch). Such names as Rooseveldt, Astor, Vanderbilt, Van Ranselaer, Van Cortlandt, etc., immediately occur to anyone in this connection. The Dutch were the Chosen Instrument of Finance.


" This is not an attempt to write a history of the United States. It is a suggestion that the United States is a definite and very important item in a plan which was interrupted by the expulsion from England in the late thirteenth and early fourteenth centuries of the Jews and their associates whom we now call Freemasons, but who were then called Knights Templars..."

Vikings brought Amerindian to Iceland 1,000 years ago: study
http://news.yahoo.com/s/afp/20101117/sc_afp/sciencebiologygeneticshistoryusiceland_20101117170943

AFP/SCANPIX/File – The Oseberg viking ship at the Viking Ship Museum in Oslo. The first Native American to arrive in Europe … – Wed Nov 17, 12:09 pm ET
MADRID (AFP) – The first Native American to arrive in Europe may have been a woman brought to Iceland by the Vikings more than 1,000 years ago, a study by Spanish and Icelandic researchers suggests.
The findings boost widely-accepted theories, based on Icelandic medieval texts and a reputed Viking settlement in Newfoundland in Canada, that the Vikings reached the American continent several centuries before Christopher Columbus travelled to the "New World."
Spain's CSIC scientific research institute said genetic analysis of around 80 people from a total of four families in Iceland showed they possess a type of DNA normally only found in Native Americans or East Asians.
"It was thought at first that (the DNA) came from recently established Asian families in Iceland," CSIC researcher Carles Lalueza-Fox was quoted as saying in a statement by the institute.
"But when family genealogy was studied, it was discovered that the four families were descended from ancestors who lived between 1710 and 1740 from the same region of southern Iceland."
The lineage found, named C1e, is also mitochondrial, which means that the genes were introduced into Iceland by a woman.
"As the island was virtually isolated from the 10th century, the most likely hypothesis is that these genes corresponded to an Amerindian woman who was brought from America by the Vikings around the year 1000," said Lalueza-Fox.
The researchers used data from the Rejkjavik-based genomics company deCODE Genetics.
He said the research team hopes to find more instances of the same Native American DNA in Iceland's population, starting in the same region in the south of the country near the massive Vatnajokull glacier.
The report, by scientists from the CSIC and the University of Iceland, was also published in the latest edition of the American Journal of Physical Anthropology.
The journal said 75 to 80 percent of contemporary Icelanders can trace their lineage to Scandinavia and the rest to Scotland and Ireland.
But the C1e lineage is "one of a handful that was involved in the settlement of the Americas around 14,000 years ago.
"Contrary to an initial assumption that this lineage was a recent arrival (in Iceland), preliminary genealogical analyses revealed that the C1 lineage was present in the Icelandic mitochondrial DNA pool at least 300 years ago.
"This raised the intriguing possibility that the Icelandic C1 lineage could be traced to Viking voyages to the Americas that commenced in the 10th century," said the journal.


NOW, LET’S GET THIS CLEAR IN OUR MINDS

The headlines read: “An Irish crisis and a British nightmare” ... Am I to understand from the headline that the people of Ireland woke up one morning and found the sun had not risen, the shops had run out of food, and, to make matters worse, the sheep, cattle and everything else that makes up their real world, their true economy, had either dropped dead or fell off the face of the earth? Of course not!

Look behind the ‘magical spin’ of the Money Cult gentle reader and what can you see? Isn’t the situation such as Wallace Klinck once wrote of? “The problems flow from our universal, evil and defective (non-distributive) financial system. (Note the headline once again, it is the Irish and the British people’s fault – not the financial system. Nor the fault of those who control the system nor that of the politicians who collude with the controllers!) This provides an abundant field for those with the Will-to-Power to seek increasing means of controlling rather than serving their fellow man. Angels could not live moral lives under the existing evil financial system. We engage in massive immoral programs of mass destruction and increasingly superfluous wasteful and ballooning bureaucratic administrative systems and still we cannot convey to the consumer our vast output.

Social Credit is concerned with the primary problem of the modern world and that is to distribute the results which flow from the Unearned Increment of Association and the Cultural Heritage. Douglas identified the artificial financial restraint in respect of consumption as the central and growing problem of the modern world. He regarded the problems of production in the modern technological era--if properly supported by effective consumer financial demand--as either essentially solved or solvable.

We live in a positively insane dimension of consciousness. Social Credit declares that anything that is physically required or desired and possible must be also financially possible. There is no sanity to making such things possible if the consumer is denied access to them as they emerge from the production system. If we instituted realistic financial measures as advocated by Douglas, we could utilize our resources toward living in peace and would not have to finance War.

But no, the plan is not to ‘institute sane financial measures’, not to give the people of Ireland and/or Britain relief from the debt-structure under which they groan, the plan is to centralise the world financial system even further and the trigger is to panic the nations into accepting The Plan.  


YOU CAN'T EAT TREES !

Taken from Andrew Bolt’s Blog, 22/11/2010 (08:08 am):
Andrew Bolt is doing his fellow Australians a great service by continually writing on this issue: “Think this through” he says. “What will happen to food prices and our exports if we pay farmers to cut back on their crops: Under government plans to test-run a carbon market for the sector, farmers will be able to cash in on measures to reduce carbon pollution. These will include tree planting and reducing fertiliser use.

Update: To confirm what critics in comments below seek to deny, here are examples of carbon dioxide offset schemes boasting that they are indeed sticking their (non-fruiting) trees on farmland: Rewards offers carbon sequestration projects for commercial clients, using permanent forest plantations to sequester carbon abatement from the atmosphere through the incorporation of Australian native species on to cleared Western Australian Wheat belt farm land.

And: Carbon Conscious plants mallee eucalypt trees… Importantly the majority of the plantations are on marginal Australian farmland. We work very closely with Australian farmers to identify tracts of land on their farm that are considered less productive. Comment: I was on a League speaking-tour in south-west West Australia a number of years ago. My driver pointed out the sad sight of productive farm land (he remembered it being cleared for farming forty years before) being planted with ‘pine forests’.

As the NSW Farmers Association says: Carbon plantation tax breaks are alienating agricultural land.

The Australian Banana Growers’ Council warns: As a major national agricultural industry association, we are fundamentally opposed to providing tax incentives for enterprises that will occupy agricultural land without providing food or fibre for consumption… First, developers of carbon sink forests are provided with massive financial advantage over the farmers who produce our food. Second, the proposed emissions trading scheme (ETS) will allow large polluters to offset their emissions by merely planting more forests, and third, the tree plantation industry itself will execute plans to treble forests acreage within 12 years. Any one of these proposals alone would have a severe impact on Australian agriculture, however there is no doubt that this combination of factors - and their propensity to leverage each other - will have a devastating effect on the availability of good agricultural land in Australia over the next decade, and the ability of our farmers to provide agricultural produce at reasonable and sustainable prices.

As the South Australian Advisory Board of Agriculture tried to tell the Rudd Government: Threats to food security, employment in regional areas, and social ramifications, are high amongst the implications of Australia’s most productive land being locked up to tree plantings for at least 100 years under the ETS Lack of food production will impose imported foods grown under regimes with far lower safety standards…
Food security is being threatened by encroachment of reforestation onto safe food producing areas. Cashing in on carbon sinks, the resource industry is encouraging the conversion of food producing areas to forests.”
Look here: And you are still unsure as to the real motive behind the carbon currency (ration) card!   

HOW IMPORTANT IS CARBON FOR OUR HEALTH?

Well worth giving this piece some thought.
“What Are the Elements in the Human Body?” by Anne Marie Helmenstine, Ph.D., from - About.com Guide:
Question: What Are the Elements in the Human Body?
Answer: Most of the human body is made up of water, H2O, with cells consisting of 65-90% water by weight. Therefore, it isn't surprising that most of a human body's mass is oxygen. Carbon, the basic unit for organic molecules, comes in second. 99% of the mass of the human body is made up of just six elements: oxygen, carbon, hydrogen, nitrogen, calcium, and phosphorus. Oxygen (65%) : Carbon (18%) : Hydrogen (10%) : Nitrogen (3%) : Calcium (1.5%) : Phosphorus (1.0%) : Potassium (0.35%) : Sulfur (0.25%) : Sodium (0.15%) : Magnesium (0.05%) : Copper, Zinc, Selenium, Molybdenum, Fluorine, Chlorine, Iodine, Manganese, Cobalt, Iron (0.70%) Lithium, Strontium, Aluminum, Silicon, Lead, Vanadium, Arsenic, Bromine (trace amounts)

BETTER PART OF IRELAND THAN ASIA!

by Peter West
I have a great love of Ireland and the Irish. I noticed the remarks made at a recent comedy festival in Ireland, which pitted great Irish wit against each other in the quest to save Ireland from bankruptcy. The winner of the contest suggested that Ireland merge with Australia. The comedian said: “They [Aussies] have lots of mineral wealth but no water and no culture. We have no mineral wealth but lots of water and lots of culture. G’day”. (The Australian, November 17, 2010, p.15).

Although said in jest the idea is not a bad one and far better than “Asianisation”. The geographical separation by distance argument has been killed by modern transport and the internet. The two countries could merge: for that matter it was probably a mistake to separate from Britain in the first place. Australia was a ripe sugar plum that our traitorous elites could not wait to sell to the lowest bidder. Of course, it was the same globalism which trapped Ireland and is now throwing her on the same rubbish dump as Greece.


MONOPOLY SOCIALISM DOMINATED BY THE INSTITUTIONS OF FINANCE

“‘The City’ demands End of Sovereignty - for Ireland and the World” from Richard Eastman:
“The City of London and its Inter-Alpha Group of Banks is strangling Ireland, to force the Irish government to take over the debts of the private banks, including Inter-Alpha's own Allied Irish Banks… The illusion of a 'recovery' since September/October 2008 has depended entirely upon governments taking over the banking system's gambling losses, and pushing the burden of those losses on to the public…

The flagship [Rothschild's] London Economist similarly says that the purpose of the bailout of the Irish banking sector is to 'make it sturdy enough for some of Ireland's banks to be bought up by foreign ones'. . . Since the old game is up, the article then calls for a technocratic dictatorship to restructure the banking system into a system of "super banks" backed by a European governments-financed bailout in the form of the European Financial Stability Facility and other such funds.

"No one can be relaxed about the chaos such a process may cause. But it can be minimized by putting in place the technocratic capacity; by preparing large, well-capitalized banks for quickly taking over operations whose disruption is most damaging, such as small business banking and deposit taking; and [by] readying the large funds needed for transitional outlays and liquidity needs — with borrowing from the EFSF if necessary."  (emphasis added..ed)


SWEDISH 'RACE-HATE': MERELY MIGRATION AT END OF ITS TETHER?

by Peter West
The liberal elites are worried about racial and ethnic tensions in Europe, with the city of Malmo, Sweden, being in world focus. It seems a serial killer is targeting “dark skinned” people. The killings are said to be racially motivated, although police have said about the shootings that they have “no apparent motive”.

Writing in The Times, Roger Boyes says that this “reflects the failure of Swedish multiculturalism”. And ‘Foreigners are more likely to be pushed into urban enclaves, where they live on welfare, often barred from working”. Yes, call it “racism” – call it what you will – but the fault for all of this lies with those who promote mass migration with no concern for social cohesion, all for a few dollars more. Racial hate is the effect of this, not the cause. Clearly immigration must end to allow these terrible social wounds to heal.  


BBC IN DISTRESS - BAD NEWS FOR MULTICULTURALISTS

The latest is the Sweden Democrats. With over 4% of the vote they passed the threshold to enter parliament and now have 20 seats and potentially hold the balance of power.
Seems like a pattern: In the Netherlands the [so-called] anti-immigrant Freedom Party was the third largest in the June elections. Since then the country has been unable to form a stable government. Polls suggest that if an election was held now Geert Wilders, the leader of the Freedom Party, would do even better. He campaigned on shutting down Islamic schools and banning face veils.
In Italy, the Northern League – which is the fastest growing party – has embraced a tough new law enabling authorities to fine and imprison illegal immigrants.
In Austria, the anti-foreigner Freedom Party captured 17.5% of the vote two years ago and is now pushing in regional elections for a vote to ban minarets and Islamic veils.
In Germany the former member of the Bundesbank, Thilo Sarrazin, has attracted large audiences to hear him discuss his book Germany Doing Away with Itself. His main critique is directed at Islam. Guess multiculturalism failed.

THE SUICIDE OF REASON AND THE COMING CRASH OF CIVILISATION

by James Reed
Recently President B.Hussein Obama in a Univision interview said that Hispanic voters should have the attitude: “We’re gonna punish our enemies and we’re gonna reward out friends who stand with us on issues that are important to us”. Obama also said that if the Republicans gain control of the House and/or Senate then he predicts “hand to hand combat” on Capitol hill.

So long reconciliation and unity from Mr I-am-beyond-race. Hello the war against white Americans. Perhaps it was a bad hair day or did he just read Lee Harris’ "The Next American Civil War: The Populist Revolt Against the Liberal Elite", (Palgrave Macmillan, New York, 2010) another book dealing with the yawning abyss between the cosmopolitan dreams of the intellectuals and the practical localism of the ordinary folk.

Lee Harris previously published The Suicide of Reason: Radical Islam’s Threat to the West (Basic Books, New York, 2007) which predicts a “crash of civilisations”. Radical Islam is an example of the reawakening of the tribal mind. Individualistic rational Western man is expecting the world to conform to Enlightenment ideals, but it is not. All this is set for a battle between reason and tribalism. Harris does not see any inevitability to the triumph of Western liberalism. There is no end of history or coming golden age. It is an illusion to suppose that reason is universal.

Although Harris does not discuss demography, a recent book by Eric Kaufman, "Shall the Religious Inherit the Earth: Demography and Politics in the Twnty-First Century", (Profile Books, London, 2010) adds to this “crash of civilisation” picture. For example, in 1959 Europe had 2.5 times the population of Africa. By 2050, Africa will have over four times the population of Europe. By the same token about 40% of Europeans will be over 60. Kaufman analyses these trends in terms of religion rather than race. But it is obvious that the demographic explosion is in the non-white world – all thanks to our promiscuous altruism, cosmopolitanism and universalism. Add to this that the West will try to prop up its diseased economy by immigration of majority non-whites, further demographically displacing itself.
Harris makes the interesting observation that Francis Fukuyama’s “The End of History and the Last Man” is about not only the end of history (with liberalism) but also “the last man”, the end of males with testosterone, alpha males or “John Wayne” men. Islam is encouraging warriors whilst the West through feminism emasculates men. There will be no fight left in Western men who simply give up. Thanks a lot liberalism, consumerism and women’s lib for finishing our civilisation!

Hopefully a quick global economic/ecological crash will bring forth the horsemen of the apocalypse and a return to reality, forcing the West to toughen up.
