27 July 2012 Thought for the Week:
The perfect storm – Santelli meets Nigel Farage:
From the simple self-referential idiocy of Spain's EUR100 billion bailout - that creates vicious circles on all the peripheral 'bailing' nations; to "the same bundle of money going round and round in circles" leaving Nigel tempted to describe it as "a giant ponzi scheme"; Santelli, not to be outdone, explains how the US is just such a money-circulating ponzi scheme as "one part of the government issues debt as another part is buying".
The ECB, of course, is becoming plagued with more and more of the ponzi-like peripheral paper and as Farage notes "the day Greece leaves the Euro - and it will - the ECB is left with a massive paper loss" leaving the ECB under-capitalized - which in all its wonderful craziness means "it has to go and get fresh capital from the other countries that themselves have been bailed out and are in fact in trouble…"
Sedgwick, Maine has done what no other town in the United States has done.
This includes raw milk, locally slaughtered meats, and just about anything else you can imagine. It means that farmer and patron agree to enter into private agreements with one another, and settle any disputes that arise personally and civilly. It is the way things used to be done before Americans sacrificed their freedoms to the US Food and Drug Administration (FDA). Learn about the principles in this video.- -
THE CONSPIRACY TO DESTROY WHITE RACE IN ENGLAND AND EUROPE
by James Reed and Peter West
Oh, by the way, Peter Sutherland in non-executive chairman of Goldman Sachs International. Sutherland told the House of Lords Committee : “It’s impossible to consider that the degree of homogeneity which is implied by the other argument can survive because the states have to become more open states, in terms of the people who inhabit them. Just as the United Kingdom has demonstrated.”
Then Sutherland was questioned about OECD evidence that employment rates among migrants in the US and Australia were higher than in EU countries. His reply: “The United States or Australia and New Zealand, are migrant societies and therefore they accommodate more readily those from other backgrounds than we do ourselves, who still nurse a sense of our homogeneity and difference from others.” And, Pete, what about the homogeneity of China? Why not go there and tell them to get “multicultural” as well?
It gets ‘better’: according to Elliot Lake News and Views “The EU also wants to invite 50,000,000 – that’s fifty million Africans to Europe to take up jobs. While Europeans, such as in Greece, are homeless and unemployed, the cynical elites are opening up job centres in West Africa, to begin a ‘master plan” of open African migration of workers to Europe.
The solution is obvious: send the 50 million African workers to Australia! Our elites tell us that there is no limit to the number of workers the mining industry needs. Why, 50 million workers, over double Australia’s present population, is surely just a drop in the ocean! As there are no environmental limits to growth, the 50 million workers could fly back to their home in Canberra, adding rich cultural diversity to that city!
MIGRATION IN ACTION : TAKE A LOOK AT BRITAIN
by Brian Simpson
But this is only temporary because it sets into play forces of resistance. Dr. Ellis believes that a civil-race war “is not beyond the realms of possibility”. He points out that in many parts of England, especially in the inner cities, something of a low-intensity urban war, grounded in drugs and crime and directed against the police, is already beginning.
Further to all of this, I think that the affluence of the post World War II world of the West has softened whites. The consumer society has put materialism as a new religion and made comfort and having “things” more important them ideals. What will be interesting to see is when economic/ecological breakdown smashes the consumer society. It is easy to be able to have a puffed-up morality of egalitarianism when one has so much – but what happens when it is lost?
SCIENCE EDUCATION AND THE SOCIAL CONSTRUCTION OF SOCIAL CONSTRUCTIONISM
by Chris Knight
This view is the social construction of science and is only a heart-beat from cognitive relativism, seeing all knowledge claims as “equal” because there is no standard to judge between them. Hence voodoo and quantum physics are “equal”. The Left loves this. But science done well, is in a league of its own. Voodoo and the like lack explanatory power and an experimental basis. Science gives us the modern world, and it is this, that the over-affluent, culturally bored Left, who so typically fill sociology departments, are in revolt against.
But let civilisation crumble and it will be the sociology types who will be first to perish - lawyers next; politicians being used to cannibalism will linger on.
AT LAST – QUESTIONING THE HOLY OF HOLIES
by James Reed
According to Morrison, “That’s a world of difference between people getting on planes to Indonesia or Malaysia as part of an integrated package to get to an asylum country of choice. That’s not what the Convention was designed to address.” But if that is so it is arguable that there is nothing wrong with the Convention, just its present interpretation.
No! The whole ideology of immigrationism and refugeeism should be rejected, and should have been rejected in 1951, along with that globalist pseudo world government, the UN. But given present realities, rejecting the 1951 Convention is a great start and delivers a needed smack on the wrist to the cosmopolitans.
POLITICAL PIGGIES WITH THEIR SNOUTS IN THE TROUGH
by James Reed
THE GREENS AND THE MEDIAEVAL MIND
by James Reed
O’Neill mentions *Gaia (“Mother Earth”) but he does not comment on the seeming cult of regarding the Earth as a living entity. James Lovelock the scientist popularised this idea, but Greens have taken things much further creating a new ecological paganism, a religion, I believe for the one world government that Bob Brown so hopes for. It is a pity that the “collapse” that so many of them hope for, will not bring on a “new age”, but rather the end of civilisation.
* Geoffrey Dobbs dealt with the “Mother Earth –Gaia” concept in his Local World series available to download here.
TRUTH vs JUSTICE
by Ian Wilson LL.B.
The argument cannot be justly summarised here, but in a nutshell he finds no reference to “the pursuit of truth” in fundamental documents such as the 1823 Charter of Justice (King George IV) (rather reference is to the “administration of Justice”) The Supreme Court Act 1970 (NSW) and the Civil Procedure Act 2005 (NSW). The adversarial system seeks truth, but a qualified truth, consistent with the values of “justice”. I think the complex roles of evidence and admissibility (not explicitly discussed) also support this.
Freedom folk note that “justice” is not your kind of moral rightness. Justice is what the court system delivers, by its rules and on its terms. Ash does not go on to discuss this. It is therefore conceptually distinct from truth. I think, in many cases, “justice” delivered based upon morally bad laws, gives tyranny. Hence I am of the opinion that our adversarial and legal system is intrinsically flawed, putting “justice” first and absolute truth, way back.
SOCIETY GENUFLECTS BEFORE NUMERICAL ABSTRACTIONS
by Wallace Klinck, Canada
Any society that genuflects before a numerical abstraction that sabotages every scientific advance in productivity and insists perversely on accounting its growing real assets as a liability is on a collision course with disaster -- a disaster that is probably well-deserved. If we are at a "turning point" we had better do some realistic thinking instead of emulating the Gadarene swine--or civilization is going to turn off a cliff.
Furthermore, both accountants and economists seem to not understand the creditary nature of money. Economists understand how demand effects prices, and accountants understand how cost accounting effects prices. In my opinion neither understands how both effect prices! This is a serious flaw in the way economics is taught at university. I know it's quite possible, in fact I'd argue that it's most probable, that someone can obtain a PhD in economics without taking a single course in accounting. And I'm sure it's possible to obtain a PhD in accounting with taking only one or two courses in economics.
C H Douglas, The Social Creditor, Sept. 22, 1945 wrote: "We have noticed many times that there appears to be a sheer inability on the part of monetary experts both orthodox and unorthodox ... to apply the simplest principles of double-entry book keeping, or of cost-accounting, to the money system. In consequence, many of their doubtless well-meaning proposals are as incompatible with each other, that the whole subject assumes the aspect of a mad-hatters' tea-party."
PHONIES, PHONIES - ALL OF THEM!
by Betty Luks
Huh? Against anti-competitive conduct?
In an earlier news release you called for local councillors to get behind the push for cash-starved Local Councils to be acknowledged in the Commonwealth Constitution – so they could have access to funds through the Federal government. You saw nothing wrong with the further centralisation of political and financial power in this case, nor did you question - or tell us -as to why local councils are so cash starved.
Tell me Barnaby, as a (so I understand) Christian, what do you make of the New Testament parable of the Unmerciful Servant (Matthew 18:21-35). It has to do with debt forgiveness.
And so it is today. We are told ‘Banks are too big to fail’ no matter how criminal their activities and governments are busily ‘shoring them up’ to save them and so retain the present financial set up, but the little people are brought before the courts and the full weight of the corrupt system is brought down upon them.
The National Dividend- Arthur Brenton editor of The New Age journal, in 1925 wrote in “The Veil of Finance:-
We press the view that the dole or subsidy need never be repaid, but that both should be regarded as a belated payment to the public on account of the stupendous hidden debt of credit owed to them by their financial agent, the banking system. There is only one objection to the present “subsidies”—we are not every one of us sharing in them. The distribution is partial, when it ought to be general. And when it becomes general, we have only to discard its obsolete and false name of “subsidy” and “dole,” and to clothe it with its scientific name and economic vestment—The National Dividend. The Veil of Finance will have been lifted.
MACQUARIE GROUP UNIT FACES US PROBE OVER DEAL
According to Scott Murdoch The Australian: The Macquarie Group is being investigated by the US Securities and Exchange Commission over a botched subprime mortgage bond deal from before the global financial crisis. It was revealed yesterday that Delaware Investments, now a subsidiary of Macquarie Group, and Mizuho Financial Group are likely to face civil charges over the $US1.6 billion Delphinus bond offer in 2007. The Wall Street Journal reported yesterday that the SEC, the US corporate regulator, was about to file lawsuits against the two groups.
It will be alleged that the bond deal consisted of a collateralised debt obligation that "imploded" just months after it was sold to investors. The failed deal has been under investigation by the SEC for the past five years since the transaction soured. The CDO was made up of a pool of subprime mortgages and other loans.
In a statement, Delaware said it had been working with the SEC on the allegations concerning its role in the failed deal. "This type of notice from (the SEC) . . . is neither a formal allegation nor a finding of wrongdoing," the company said.
The likely SEC action is an embarrassing blow for Macquarie which finalised the Delaware purchase in early 2010. The business has been hit by a staff exodus as well as volatility in US financial markets.
DOTH THE LADY PROTEST TOO MUCH?
From Larry Pickering’s Face Book
The lady is a lawyer and should know that if you are caught with your pants down, it’s better not to draw attention ...to the problem. If your pants are still firmly around your waist then simply walk on. If you ARE indeed caught with your pants down, the logical thing to do is shuffle to the nearest microphone and rationally explain the situation. The lady steadfastly refuses to do that. In fact she refuses to answer any questions asked of her by media. The lady always responds, “...I have dealt with this matter previously, please refer to that response.” We can’t find any response.
All we wanted was an explanation. Who knows, the whole affair may be entirely explicable! If it is, then it will simply go away. We will all apologise for misreading the evidence and go about our business. No problems.
Too many people lie injured and still bleeding in the aftermath of the Wilson affair. They are now determined a certain lady will also spill blood. The Pickering Post has it on good authority that legal proceedings will shortly commence out of Melbourne. The star witness will be a person the Lady knows well. All this nasty stuff could have been averted with an explanation. A plausible explanation.
LETTER IN THE PRESS
Numurkah Leader - Local Councils, July 2012:
The State Government can also set financial policy and this is defined in the Constitution of The Commonwealth of Australia (Part V, Section 51, Par. xiii) so from the foregoing we can say that the Commonwealth has no business interfering with the machinery of Local Government. The State Government also has a policy of “cost-shifting” so loading an increasing financial burden on councils and I fail to see why council representatives do not baulk at the State’s demands.
Why do they continue to increase the financial burden on ratepayers “year in, year out”? This year’s 6% increase is on top of last year’s 5% increase and it goes on without bounds year after year… have you ever experienced a rate decrease? This is accompanied by increased bureaucratic regulation – for your own good, of course! The system works against the smaller home-owner as re-valuations ensure the well remunerated administrators are paid with little improvement in service delivery, but then, they “are just doing their job” and move on when the atmosphere becomes uncomfortable.
I am sure as valuations and rates increase, then home-owners down-size to reduce the financial burden and often at a cost to themselves and their families. What can be done? Is it too much to expect any candidate at the forthcoming council elections to draw a line and say… “This is where it stops!” In the final analysis, it is up to the voting ratepayer… Will you vote for more of the same or will YOU say “I have had enough!”
If you judge by results then Local Government has been left wanting and the burden is becoming too much to bear. This is not a call for the abolition of Local Government, on the contrary, a new way of funding Local Government MUST be found!

LETTER TO THE PRESS
A Crime Against Humanity: To the Editor of The Age, 19th July 2012
Nonagenarians, including Australia's Charles Zentai, whose case is still under consideration by the High Court, should be left alone and referred to the justice of God.
