28 September 2012 Thought for the Week:
Imperial By Design: America is not doing very well. Why? What went wrong? How difficult it is to spread de’markrazy at the point of a gun! “We” believe we have the responsibility to run the world! The goal is global domination!
Carbon Trading Scheme needs to be examined very carefully:
You cannot eat pine needles and gum leaves, even in the city. Fresh food prices have skyrocketed in the past month. We will be importing all food if this does not stop. In the meantime Australians are being taxed for having electricity, breathing and... Oh! my God, you have to laugh. Have some more prescription pills, fluoride, more flu injections and you won't even know how it happened!
When a government does not have the best interests of its own people at heart, we would be better off without them. Gilliard has created a vehicle for decommissioning productive farmland and producing extreme profits for the landowner.
THE TREASON QUESTION
by Ian Wilson LL.B.
The Australian dealt with all of this in two articles, Christian Kerr, “An Insult to the Memory of Many” (The Weekend Australian 25-26 August 2012, p.18) in an opinion piece, and Nick Leys’ “Traitor Article ‘Failed to Include Key Fact’” (p.3). Among other things, Butler had been found by the Reed board of inquiry into military offenders to be “loyal to His majesty the King”, as the Leys’ article says.
So, what’s the “key fact”?
Thus, what then about the allegations of being anti-Semitic? Mr. Jackson challenges such allegations arguing that one can be critical of Jewish activities without being anti-Semitic. But suppose by hypothesis that this was not so, that anything but positive propositions about Jewish activities would constitute anti-Semitism. Would that meet the Criminal Code definition of treason? Hardly.
There is no doubt that in the past, at the time of World War II, many soldiers held views similar to Butler’s and especially on the race issue. Whether this is right or wrong need not concern us. What counts is that it is not relevant evidence to support a section 80.1 violation and would not be admissible evidence in any such trial. Nor would claims that “Churchill, Roosevelt and John Curtin were covert communists” be admissible because it is not materially relevant to the defined conditions under section 80.1.
Even if one was shown in the 1940s to be anti-Semitic, it still did not follow at the time that one was therefore a Nazi. There are many historical examples of anti-Semitism which have no connection to National Socialism philosophy. Butler’s “The International Jew”, whether it be regarded as anti-Semitic by the standards of the times or today’s standards, still criticised Hitler. Any fair court would have to conclude that the book is not “Nazi” even if it was “anti-Semitic”. Only by equating all anti-Semitism to Nazism (historically false), could this book be seen as in some way supporting one of the things that the National Socialists may have believed. I take no position on the merits or otherwise of this book.
To summarise: the case for Eric Butler being a “traitor” is refutable in legal terms. The alleged evidence, even taken to be genuine, would not establish the treason charge. This is so regardless of all the complexities involving anti-Semitism and these sorts of allegations that Mr. Jackson has dealt with, and no doubt will continue to deal with.
THE COMING GREAT STARVATION
by James Reed
Speaking about starving to death: “Family Farms Soon to be a Foreign Nation” (The Advertiser 8 September 2012, pp.26-27) reports that Professor John Lee from Sydney University has raised security concerns about Chinese investment in Australia, coming primarily from State-owned enterprises which are very closely linked to the Chinese Communist Party. They are legally required to transfer any intellectual property to other State Chinese agencies. Exxon, Siemens and BMW had their intellectual property in car parts transferred over. But Tony Rabbit doesn’t see a problem here.
The Advertiser article is explicit: “It is predicted more Australian agricultural land will be needed to feed China’s rapidly urbanising population of 1.3 billion.” By adopting Western diets, China could in principle command the entire food of the world. Certainly “food bowl” Australia will be eaten up, while we starve. Since there is no fight left in us anymore, I recommend not throwing out your copies of The Australian as in the future they may be all we have to eat – unless we eat each other!
WHAT COST TO AUSTRALIA’S LONG TERM BENEFIT?
Ausby is conducting an internet campaign to let YOU have a say in the matter. “Foreign Investment - at What Cost to Australia’s long term benefit?” All Australians must be concerned about the sale of our land to foreign investors. The headline in the Land 7/6/2012 stating “Australia in need of off shore investors” reflects an attitude which has prevailed to our cost for decades.
It is irrelevant that investment in farming is relatively small. We cannot buy land in China, the Arab States, Japan or any of the other nations buying our wealth creating assets whether land or companies. We have the highest interest rates in the world yet our assets our being bought by foreign countries, companies, hedge funds and superannuation funds because they want the profits our assets offer. And in the meantime we pretend the mining industry will save us when 80% of our mining companies are foreign owned much of which is threatening farm land.
What is even more telling from the interview with Tom Mckeon CEO of Hassad, a Qatari Consortium, is that they have identified control of the supply chain including the land is the best way to ensure their food security. The issue is, food grown here will not necessarily stay here to the benefit of Australia. The scenario could occur where if the food exported and not sold then the owners will not pay tax as they are growing it for their own use. Easy to do when you are a nation. These assets will not be added to our exports. Australia will no longer derive income from these assets. Some say they cannot export the land, but land is being bought in strategic parts of Australia by countries and this is an issue of sovereign risk.
Decades of our own Governments’ policies has already exacerbated the situation beyond the farm gate by allowing the control of the supply chain of all but one food commodity, rice, to be majority controlled by foreign interests. To add insult to injury these foreign owned companies do not pay the same tax as Australian companies (10% withholding tax), and control many of our export industries. Private companies dominate in beef and wheat exports and like countries are not transparent. Any wonder farmers are being forced to sell their farms because we have made them price takers not price makers.
AUSBUY calls for a moratorium on the sale of our land and our assets until we establish a “national interest test”. Assets which are within Australia should return long term benefits to the people of Australia. The Mabo Treaty gives land rights to indigenous Australians, while non indigenous Australians have no rights. New Zealand recently applied their national interest test to stop the sale of eight dairy farms to the Chinese on the basis that these assets where for the long term benefit of the New Zealand People. Australians have no such protections… Go to www.ausbuy.com.au Click on Time to Wake Up Australia to have your say.
SOUTH AUSTRALIA: POWER PRICES ONE OF THE HIGHEST IN THE WORLD
Source: adelaidenow, by David Nankervis 12 September 12, 2012.
Soaring power prices are being blamed for this 38 per cent spike in disconnections, with welfare groups reporting those on fixed incomes suffering the most - including one man who had to resort to cooking his meals over a wood fire in his back-yard for six months after being disconnected. Welfare agency Anglicare said it had reports of disconnected households commonly using candles for lighting, heating rooms with barbecues - and keeping perishables such as milk and butter in Eskies. The number of reconnections is only about a third of the number of disconnections recorded in 2011/12, the figures show.
"While people can reduce their electricity use, they still have supply charges which they can't control," said Anglicare wellbeing manager Christine Bell. "More needs to be done, and one example we are looking at through international research is where people can make payments fortnightly and not be hit with a big quarterly bill."
Oh dear! Isn’t it a tragedy when the one institution (the Church) that once sought for answers to the oppressions of Mammon now can’t see the wood for the trees? This is a financial/ philosophical issue. It is not primarily an ecological/environmental issue. Read more:
ABBOTT SHOWS LIBERALS TRUE COLOURS: RED AND YELLOW OF CHINA
by James Reed
No doubt the ruling bunnies know that the white mice, the white “No worries, she’ll be right mate” lab mice, are being replaced by little yellow dragons anyway, so it doesn’t really matter if their food and resources are owned by China, as “Australia” is a Chinese possession. We must find a quiet spot to die and hope that the smell of our decaying culture and people does not offend.
REVEALING QUOTE ON THE LIB/LAB EVIL STUPID PARTY
by James Reed
We can add along with this, an ending of the White Australia Policy, pursuing multiculturalism, multiracialism, Asianisation and now Chinese colonisation, the Labor and Liberal Party have been as one. Abbott was “deputised” by Howard to deal with Pauline Hanson and One Nation. LabLib is the evil stupid party and stupid evil party, all rolled into one.
WORLD GOVERNMENT OF A DANGEROUS KIND ALREADY HERE
by Peter Ewer
Yes, in Bob’s world China, India and the Third World would make the decisions. What about a pro-growth decision of destroying all the rainforests of the world? Bob of course would argue that non-Western nations would not do this, but a glance at the present growth philosophy of China would lead one to believe that under Bob’s system you could kiss the environment goodbye, and our freedoms.
Keith Windshuttle wrote a piece about this in Quadrant May 2012, pointing out that conventional Bob Brown-style visions of world government (i.e., a world parliament) fail, but a global governance by way of international; courts, transnational bodies and the like is real. International conventions and treaties regulate many government activities, such as immigration and refugee policy.
This has created a “supra-national legal regime, a de facto constitutional authority above national constitutions but enforced mostly by compliant national courts.” This is a sort of world government we should fear, because we have it already, I believe.
Comment: Ever thought just how the smaller population of Australia would be outvoted every time by just such a system?
EQUALITY, THEN AND NOW
by Chris Knight
The phrase in question, “All men are equal” referred to the English and proclaimed that Americans ands Englishmen were equal. The passion of the War of Independence was still on their minds. At that time they never looked down the track. Look at us for example. It is clear that we are going to be swamped by the Chinese through migration but people in the freedom movement can’t get moving to put up even a token of resistance. How many people have resolved to write “Reduce Immigration” on their ballot papers? What will remain of our culture and race in 100, 50 – even 20 years time?
IMMIGRATION SHOULD NOT BE IGNORED
by James Reed
Soames has rightly blamed Labour for its “chaotic ill-thought out and deeply irresponsible approach to immigration” which gave the UK “the greatest wave of immigration … in nearly 1000 years.” Soames did not mention that newspaper articles have shown that this was deliberate and planned, to create a multiracial/multicultural society that would vote Labour. That’s right, change the people to keep the evil stupid Party in power. (BBC News, 6 September 2012 “Stop Ignoring immigration, Soames urges MP colleagues”).
THE DEAD DUCK OF CONSTITUTIONAL RECOGNITION?
by Ian Wilson LL.B.
She went on to say: “Being descended from an Aboriginal person who lived before British colonisation is not sufficient reason by itself to hand out money to people who make a claim to being indigenous. This attitude of entitlement is poisoning Aboriginal society just as much as it is poisoning Australian attitudes to indigenous people.”
Yes, she observed “Many Aborigines share some of Andrew Bolt’s concerns about Aboriginality.” But don’t get too excited. Langton still wants the constitutional recognition of Aborigines as a first peoples, not a race. The Constitution needs to be deracinated. Instead the proposal is for the Constitution to have a prohibition on discrimination “on the grounds of race, colour or ethnic or national origin,” not precluding affirmative action style measures “for the purpose of overcoming disadvantage, ameliorating the effects of past discrimination, or protecting the cultures, languages or heritage of any group.”
Here is the worst of all possible worlds as I see it. An enshrining of politically correct dogmas as well as allowing the great affirmative action gravy train to charge on. The anti-discrimination clause would, as I believe, amount to Constitutionally grounding immigration, multiculturalism, Asianisation and anti-Anglo ideology in the Constitution. Just imagine the field day the human rights legal elite will have with it. I can hear the ‘pitter patter’ of tiny keyboards now as they prepare for the onslaught.
This entire debate has been put on the wrong foot. If there is any change to the Constitution it should be to recognise and protect the Anglo-Saxon founders of this nation. Before them there was no “Australia” – only a land mass with a group of tribes. This was not a nation, anymore than say the Germanic tribes of Northern Europe formed a nation 2,000 years ago.
It is clear that the direction to be taken by the Constitutional change debate is one which pushes the agenda of the new class even further. Don’t be lulled into a sense of false security, the real battle is just beginning.
ECONOMICS AND THE LIMITS TO GROWTH AND ECONOMICS
by Brian Simpson
Within a few months though, economics becomes a justification of capitalism with a consumer culture and unending economic growth to feed consumer needs. Surely something went wrong here. Yes, we all know that ideology was added to this witches’ brew.
The environment and the life support systems of the planet, which inconsistently, capitalist economics gives no value to, will be degraded. Rational economic man thinks that technology puts him above biology and ecology: a rude shock is about to be delivered.
ORGANIC SAFER, HEALTHIER, THAN PESTICIDE-LADEN ALTERNATIVES
by Peter and Vera West
Even after concluding that the limited studies reviewed (17 studies in humans) allegedly showed that there was a lack of evidence that organic foods were significantly more nutritious than conventional (Big Agri foods), the paper concluded that “Consumption of organic foods may reduce exposure to pesticide residues and anti-biotic-resistant bacteria.”
Mike Adams (Natural News.com, 4 September 2012), points out that the study did not examine the issue of genetically modified foods and the use of genetically-modified bovine growth in conventional milk, which is not permitted in organic milk. Nor was the issue of the environmental impact of conventional Big Agri chemicals and pesticides discussed. This is an example of science becoming ideology because of the use which the opponents of alternative agriculture can make of an admitted limited study.
French GM study raises red flags on both sides
Food Standards Australia New Zealand said it had not seen compelling evidence of a safety risk.
FSANZ chief scientist Paul Brent said it would look at any new research, but its confidence in the safety of GM products was backed by regulatory counterparts in the US, Canada, Japan and Europe.
END OF MODERN MEDICINE? SUPER BUGS BEAT ANTIBIOTICS
by Vera West
Dr. Margaret Chan, the director general of the World Health Organisation has recently said: “Things as common as strep throat or a child’s scratched knee could once again kill him.” She went on to say that “A post-antibiotic era means, in effect, an end to modern medicine as we know it.”
Mike Adams argues that the death of modern medicine may not be all that bad because of the side effects of its drugs and treatments. He says that superbugs can be controlled by an array of natural cures which are not used because they are not profitable: garlic, colloidal silver, Manuka honey, copper surfaces, vitamin B3, organic extract, are cited.
