10 December 2010 Thought for the Week:
The Herald Sun editorial wrote "Ted Baillieu may have brought back Christmas for thousands of Victoria's schoolchildren. Nativity scenes and children singing carols and exchanging cards could once again be part of Christmas celebrations at Victorian schools.
-- Jenny Stokes, Salt Shakers E-News: 2nd December 2010.
Sorry Jenny (Stokes) of Salt Shakers, but I consider Victoria’s new Premier Ted Baillieu’s ‘sop’ to Christian believers as typical of what we have come to expect from those in political power or leadership who don’t openly state “I don’t believe this Christmas myth’.
Jenny, do you really believe ‘Australia is a mostly Christian country’? If that was the case – how could there possibly be outright atheists and agnostics governing this country? If Christians are in the majority, the question has to be asked, how come we are fast sliding into a socialist world tyranny?

CHRISTIAN THEOLOGY: HARD, TOUGH, EXACTING AND COMPLEX
The following is an excerpt from a 1940’s address by Dorothy L. Sayers. I wonder what Miss Sayers would have to say about the state of the Church and what Christians believe, and their actions, today – seventy years later. The full text is found here:
And it is fatal to imagine that everybody knows quite well what Christianity is and needs only a little encouragement to practise it.
Theologically, this country is at present in a state of utter chaos, established in the name of religious toleration, and rapidly degenerating into the flight from reason and the death of hope…”
HOME IS WHERE THE HEART IS
Home is where people are whole people, and not 'employees' or functionaries: teachers or grocers, miners or doctors, railway men or tax collectors. However useful, or otherwise, these may be, it is their function to serve the people in the home, not the other way round, and that is what is so often forgotten. Traditional wisdom as expressed in the English language has always recognised the primacy of the home.
Consider the following: Home is where the heart is; Home, sweet Home, there's no place like home; make yourself at home; home made bread, home baked, home brewed, home truths; we come, from God who is our home; and in the end: Man goes to his long home.
What a word! It is like a fortress against the battering of homeless collectivism, and all these phrases give it an extra ambience and richer associations.
by James Reed
The mistake was the common one of centralising and believing “bigger is better”. The answer is to abandon the European Union, an absurd globalist experiment by the forces of international finance. Beyond that, each nation needs to adopt *social credit principles. In the short term though, moving back to national currencies is a necessary first step. To Freedom!
FIGHT BACK: PICK YOUR OWN FIGHT – AND GO FOR IT!
by James Reed
So, who is doing this? Ordinary folk like you and me, sick and tired of faceless bureaucrats and governments with special relationships with property developers. For example, residents at Woodside, South Australia, are upset about 400 refugees being dumped on them by the Red Lizard’s government. Why Woodside – why not Canberra?
TOWARDS THE END OF CHINESE IMPORTS
by James Reed
Wages, raw materials and other costs are likely to push up the price of Chinese consumer goods that now dominate our markets. Capitalists will look to Vietnam, Malaysia and maybe South America to make their junk. My hope is that costs rise in all of these nations. Fuel shortages from Asian development may ultimately swamp the global economic system, so that economic nationalism will arise once more by the very process of “survival of the fittest” that the global capitalists themselves supposedly live by. Let those who live by the market die by the market!
HEY! HOLD ON… RACISTS HAVE FEELINGS TOO!
from Len the Cleaner
Rann did not like this, and under cover of parliamentary privilege said: “I am told he is not the territory’s best and brightest, and the world that I most hear in the Territory is that he lacks any substance. When he played football, I think that his IQ was printed on his Guernsey”.
I am sure Don Dunstan would be proud of him. Ah, politics, it makes my profession of toilet cleaning look clean by comparison.
THE END OF THE WORLD IS NIGH – ACCORDING TO THE ECO-SEERERS
It has come at last. The Plan is now out in the open. That is, the Globalists’ Plan to reduce ‘the sheeple’, (the cattle), to servitude and starvation. To ensure the sheeple will not have the strength to revolt, their daily allowance of food and energy will be rationed. The airways are chock full of the propaganda: the environment is in such ‘dire straits’ the West must be put on rations to ‘save’ the Third World.
Piers Akerman shows the absurdity of the ‘spin’:
According to the Budget Papers, Australia will provide $157.3 million to the World Bank (through the International Development Association) in 2010-2011. Including Australia’s contribution, the World Bank is spending billions subsidising new coal-powered stations. This is happening while Gillard, just like Rudd before her, persists in claiming that burning fossil fuels will expose the world’s poorest populations to catastrophic climate change. Under Rudd, global warming induced by human activity was the “biggest moral challenge” of our times - until the rest of the world backed away from the prospect of massive carbon reductions at the failed Copenhagen conference almost a year ago.
Then the entirely poll-driven Gillard persuaded Rudd to dump his plans for a flawed emissions trading system before cutting short his prime ministership. This occurred when surveys and the ALP’s internal polling revealed that, while voters might not have liked Rudd, they disliked his backflip on so-called global warming even more. Gillard proceeded to campaign before last August’s election on the basis that her government would definitely not introduce a carbon tax. She could not have been more explicit. “There will be no carbon tax under the government I lead,” she told Network Ten…”
CANCUN CALLS FOR A RETURN TO WWII-STYLE RATIONING -
While They Party On! 29 November, 2010 Anthony Watts (here) http://wattsupwiththat.com/ gave us the news of the call for rationing:
“My parents used to talk about rationing during the war with great apprehension. Clearly the nutters in and supporting Cancun are clueless as to how such a scheme would be viewed by the public. My inbox has lit up today from all around the world over this issue. Short of Climategate itself, I haven’t quite seen any other similar reaction…”
Excerpts from the Telegraph: Cancun climate change summit: scientists call for rationing in developed world. Global warming is now such a serious threat to mankind that climate change experts are calling for Second World War-style rationing in rich countries to bring down carbon emissions. 'The Second World War and the concept of rationing is something we need to seriously consider if we are to address the scale of the problem we face'…”

SEEMS TO ME I’VE HEARD THAT S-O-N-G… BEFORE!

I have a copy of a report on what happened at the time from the *“Home” journal. The headlines read: “The British Housewives burnt their ration cards in protest!”:
ANOTHER MORE RECENT EXAMPLE
Jeremy Lee’s book “Australia 2000”
For example, C. Gordon Tether, one of Britain's most revered forecasters, whose Lombard column in the London Financial Times was one of the longest-running in English history, had his career abruptly terminated when he stumbled on the Bilderberg conferences and, against advice, wrote about them in his columns. These conferences are no less lavish than those of the UN itself. Consider this picture of the 1986 World Bank and IMF annual stoush: Money, not politics is the conversation of choice at Washington parties this week. 'Both a borrower and a lender be' is the rule as Washington is host to the annual meeting of the International Monetary Fund and the World Bank...
Picture the Sheraton Washington Hotel ballroom filled with 5,000 bankers and finance ministers from around the world... They discuss the money supply in terms such as M-1 over hors d'oevre, dinner and dancing in Washington's museums, hotels, embassies, Georgetown townhouses, Potomac River boats and private clubs. The irony of this extravagant entertaining has not been lost on many participants. "The banks have lost more money lending to developing countries than ever before and the parties are bigger than ever before," said a World Bank official. "Things are lavisher and lavisher all the time you're talking about the debt crisis. It's a crazy situation. A distinguished British banking official looked round the Sheraton taking in Scotch salmon, Swedish meatballs and French champagne the other night and observed dryly: "It's a waste of money. They could give all this money to African aid." . ." (10)
But they knew what they were doing. As director of the World Order Models Project said in 1975: "There is no longer a question of whether or not there will be world government by the year 2000. As I see it, the questions we should be addressing to ourselves are: how it will come into being - by cataclysm, drift, more or less rational design - and whether it will be totalitarian, benignly elitist, or participatory (the probabilities being in that order)…" (11)

INTERESTING PEDIGREE OF CARBON CURRENCY RATIONS
eremy Lee provides us with some details in his book.
It was also Keynes who in 1942 - two years before Bretton Woods - outlined the idea for International Commodity Control in a memorandum, "The International Control of Raw Materials." Although written in the war years - before the UN, the IMF or SDRs even existed - it was not until 1974, the year the Sixth Special Session of the UN made its Declaration for A New International Economic Order that Keynes's memorandum was published.
The question occurs: How is it that decisions made in an international conference of the UN in 1974 - supposedly reached by democratic vote - concur so exactly with a memorandum written 32 years previously, and unpublished until the same year as the decision? Could there be a hidden plan and a guiding hand somewhere?...”

ABANDON THE REFUGEE CONVENTION NOW!
by James Reed
The real test for the elites will come if the eco-doomsters are right about the coming environmental collapse and billions of refugees plop on their doorsteps. Will the feminist law professor be willing to give up her good wine and cream cakes so as to take a hundred or more boat people into her house?
That of course is the solution to the refugee problem. Those people wanting refugees can have them – and support them at their own personal expense. See how many of our “courageous” academics line up to help them!
PRINCE WILLIAM ONLINE ENGAGEMENT CARD
By popular demand, the Australian Monarchist League has established a stunning new website initiative whereby an engagement card for Prince William and Miss Kate Middleton can be signed on-line. The facility can be accessed via
According to AML National Chair, Philip Benwell MBE, The Royal wedding belongs to the people and should not be hijacked by politicians and celebrities. Mr Benwell has formally submitted a recommendation that a few tickets for the ceremony at Westminster Abbey be put aside for citizens from each of the Realms to be selected by ballot.

It was not until she arrived in Holland and later in America that she discovered that women were allowed to have opinions and were allowed to question the opinions of others. In the Muslim world denying belief in Allah is considered heresy punishable by death when in reality it is an opinion and should be treated as such. Ayaan claims that when large groups of Muslims are settled in one area in western countries they tend to remain segregated from the rest of the community. Their lives can be much the same as in their countries of origin with the repression of women and genital mutilation of girls.
In her chapter on feminism Ayaan wonders why feminists who have been outspoken about women’s rights in our society have little or nothing to say about repression of Islamic women and circumcision of young girls which she claims is still happening in migrant populations. When Germaine Greer was asked why she did not speak against the oppression of Islamic women she said, “Well it is a bit tricky”. Bravely Ayaan does not let this stop her even though it means that she needs bodyguards constantly. “Nomad” is well worth reading.
