On Target

16 November 2012 Thought for the Week:

"Two major events have paved the way for [major] election manipulation: the mass adoption of computerized voting technology, and the outsourcing of our elections to a handful of corporations that operate in the shadows, with little oversight or accountability.

This privatization of our elections has occurred without public knowledge or consent, leading to one of the most dangerous and least understood crises in the history of American democracy. We have actually lost the ability to verify election results."

Corrupt Technological Age: “Fellow Reckoner, (The Daily Reckoning)
It’s no secret that it’s Election Day today... Millions of Zombies will roll out of their food-stamp induced comas to cast their vote for bigger government and more handouts. Others will travel to their local polling stations to try to make their own dent in the universe. But were today’s results determined before the first ballot was cast? That’s what a new report from our friends at Wall Street Daily claims... I’ve pasted the full note below. Take a look, then decide for yourself...

- - Joe Schriefer, Publisher, Agora Financial

Political intelligence expert, Robert Williams, calls the race for the Presidency a virtual “dead heat.” Williams, who made news last month for releasing the shocking details of his investigation into the private affairs of our nation’s most prolific lawmakers, now has bigger concerns... Some early voters in North Carolina cast their ballots for Romney, but... They claimed that the electronic voting machine logged their pick as Obama. Likewise, for a handful of early voters in Ohio.

Unconfirmed chatter from other locations suggests that machines are rigged in Romney’s favour… Once you witness the extraordinary pattern of corruption firsthand, you’ll appreciate how dangerous the situation is... A link to the investigation is here...

IN THIS CORRUPT TECHNOLOGICAL AGE

by Betty Luks
The above report came out the day the US elections took place. It is from a financial adviser’s newsletter and we thought worth reporting – not for the financial advice, but for what many Americans are concerned is happening to the US electoral system, and at the same time it reveals the underlying philosophy that is so typical of the ‘right’ of American politics.

Over the last 80 years, the United States of America has shown itself to be the most productive nation in recorded history – and yet it has continually had a section of its people living in poverty.

Stephen Lendman on Veterans Today Network summed the results up well, “Money Party Wins US Election”.
He writes, “The same party wins every time. Duopoly power rules. America is a one party state with two wings. Each replicates the other. On major issues mattering most, not a dime’s worth of difference separates them.

The late Gore Vidal explained it as well as anyone. Some of his best comments included:
• “Apparently, a democracy is a place where numerous elections are held at gr eat cost without issues and with interchangeable candidates.”
• “Any American who is prepared to run for president should automatically by definition be disqualified from ever doing so.”
• “By the time a man gets to be presidential material, he’s been bought ten times over.”

What Gore Vidal said about American politics applies to most countries in this corrupt age, certainly including Australia.
Read "The Pyramid of Power" by C.H. Douglas, written in 1919.

The world seems to be tottering on the edge of a precipice. No, not the earth, not the global sphere upon which we humans precariously live and move and have our being, but the organised systems and institutions man has devised and built up over the centuries in order to govern the peoples who live within the organised whole.
The earth, that global sphere, is part of God’s created order and moves and acts according to His (some people would say ‘natural’) laws. All that mankind can, in reality, do, and has only ever been able to do, is seek out those laws and work in harmony with them - if he wants to live the good life.

There are natural laws and there are moral laws, but we don’t hear much, if anything, about the moral laws these days, but they are just as absolute as are the natural laws and the chaos we see all round us are the ‘fruits’, the results, of ignoring those laws.

The late social crediter Victor Bridger wrote:
“Whilst there is a growing awareness for the need to rectify the banking system, there still remains the demand for wrong objectives, like providing “employment” and then later he wrote: “on the one hand we have people being made aware of the problem of the banking system's control on the creation of credit (debt-credit-money) and on the other, people being misled as to the correct policy required to bring about changes and the philosophical reasons behind them”.

What is ‘Democracy’ according to social credit teaching? You know the word gentle reader - that never defined word the demagogues like to use, “democracy” - which easily rolls off the tongues of western politicians but has a hollow ring to it.
Social credit teaches that true realistic ‘democracy’ is not 'majority rule (Might is Right) but is the self-determination of the individual within the framework of the Moral of the social body.

And that is the nub, it is a policy! Social Credit will not be understood without a good grasp of the philosophical foundation. Social Credit itself is not a philosophy - it is a policy. In his early Social Dynamics Training Course, Eric D. Butler cautioned eager students not to race ahead, but get a firm grasp of the foundational principles upon which the proposals being presented were based. To reinforce the point he quoted C.H. Douglas:
“As I conceive it, Social Credit covers and comprehends a great deal more than the money problem. Social Credit involves a conception, I feel a true conception of the relationships between individuals and their association in countries and nations, between individuals and their association in groups”.

What did Douglas and Butler conceive that many find so hard to grasp? First, Social Credit proposals stem from the Christian philosophy. Is that important? Yes. Why? Christianity teaches it is at the individual, personal level, that God deals with each and every one of us.
We are each, individually, morally responsible and accountable for our own actions, our own behaviour towards our families and neighbours (and neighbouring nations).

Faith, the Proof of the Unseen: Now faith is the substance of things hoped for, the evidence of things not seen Hebrews 11:1. “Upon that turns the life of every man,” observed the 19th century clergyman and author George MacDonald. In “Faith: the Proof of the Unseen” he wrote:
“We have been talking about faith ever since the Lord came. It is not exhausted yet; and God forbid that I should know what faith is, although I know a little what it is. I think the meaning of the phrase is this: “Faith is the foundation, the root, the underlying substance of hope. If you have any hope, it comes from some faith in you. Hope, you may say, is a bud upon the plant of faith, a bud from the root of faith; the flower is joy and peace. Now the ‘evidence of things not seen’ it is the trial or the proving of things not seen, upon that turns the life of every man, especially, perhaps, in the present day.

This thing of faith means the whole recognized fellowship of man to God and his fellows; it is the right position of the human soul which is made to understand the truth - the right position of that soul towards the truth; that is faith, partly taking it in its simplest, original development, it is the highest effort of the whole human intellect, imagination, will, in the highest direction…”

Let 's ask ourselves: what do we want, what do ‘we the people’ want from the society, the human association, in which we all live and move and have our being?
Don 't people want the same things you and I want for ourselves, for our children, for our families? The means to live as we choose? Peace, with security from want and war? What about the love and warmth of husband and wife, mother and father? What about nourishment within and for our families? What about the need for the freedom (to think, to speak, to associate, to choose or refuse one thing at a time) to encounter reality - and the extension of each and every individual in the process in all the directions it allows? Surely that is what 'organised society’ is for?

What is an economic system for? Surely production and goods and services are to give people a choice as to the ends they individually choose. This is the vision towards which the Social Credit policies aim. That is FAITH: it is the doing and being of life.


SOLAR POWER AND SOARING SKY-HIGH POWER BILLS

by Betty Luks
“Households will soon be slugged $240 annually to pay for the power produced by rooftop solar systems. New modelling has revealed that by 2015-16, almost 15 per cent of the total household power price will fund the solar feed-in tariff.

The Newman (Queensland) Government has already cut the tariff for home-produced power to 8 per kilowatt hour for all solar systems bought after July 9. However, the new figures exposing the huge burden being carried by all consumers to pay those who produce solar power may prompt the Government to also reduce the 44/kWh tariff paid to those who previously installed photovoltaic systems.

The Government is investigating ways to reduce network costs - the price of moving electricity from the power generators to people's homes - which account for about 50 per cent of all electricity prices.
The rush on solar power that saw more than 100,000 Queenslanders sign up for panels could end up costing households extra on their electricity bills.” (emphasis added)

Wait a minute, wait a minute!!!
We are continually fed the propaganda that we must all reduce our carbon foot print or there will be such dire consequences they are too awful to contemplate. Yet, the national grid system is more (ENERGY) costly, as well as financially costly to move electricity “from the power generators to people's homes - which account for about 50 per cent of all electricity prices”.

Could it be that the real purpose of the national grid system, smart meters, currency-energy cards, etc., really have nothing to do with ‘’greenhouse gases’, ‘saving energy’, ad nuseum, but have all to do with locking us all into the ‘brave new world’ of George Orwell’s “Nineteen Eighty Four”.  


THE ASIAN CENTURY? MORE LIKE THE ASIAN 15-MINUTES OF FAME!

by James Reed
The Asian Century White Paper has been released, but Julia Gillard and the rest of the Fabian socialists won’t be learning a (new) Asian language because they are busy, busy, busy. But your children will. Gonski funding will depend on schools meeting the proposed Asian curriculum. This has not been negotiated with any state and has been regarded as “blackmail” (The Australian, 30 October 2012, p.7) but that’s how the Red Lizard plays the game.

Compulsory Asian languages will disadvantage all European Australians, especially Years 11 and 12, as native speakers of, say Chinese, will do Chinese do well and effectively have one less subject to do. This will get them ahead into professions and medicine so that Australia’s future professional class will be primarily Asian (** see “The Howard Legacy” by Peter Wilkinson - a displacement of traditional Australia from the professional and managerial classes following the pattern of the SE Asian nations and having a dominant Chinese minority? Available from Heritage Bookservices)

Asian languages are hard to learn from scratch and most European kids will forget in six months after year 12 all they have learnt. Even with European languages kids forget them fast. Add to this that the Asian language and university goals will cost at least an extra $10 billion a year, with $100 million extra per year merely to double the number of students studying an Asian language. (The Australian 30 October, 2012, p.1)
English is already the lingua franca of science and business, so the Asian language push must surely be for Asianisation propaganda purposes. Hopefully kids going through the torture of learning an Asian language will “backlash” against the propaganda and think more critically about the Asianist agenda.

Surprisingly enough, the White paper is very shy about actual funding commitments to the Asian language programme. Gillard at a press conference said that it would all be done by using the internet, the National Broadband Network. Good luck with that one. Kiddies, that is the ones I taught, will probably try to look at internet porn!

I have not discussed the financial/economic rhetoric of the White Paper because we review these arguments every week in these pages. It is all just more of the same : Asia will have a middle class with lots of loot, please spend it here. One more global financial/economic crisis and it will all be washed away. There are even a few comments in the press from ‘Their Side’ of politics saying that the vision of Asia in the White Paper is “too optimistic” and ignores the danger raised by the 2009 Defence White Paper. Defence spending has been cut and is now proportionately as low as it was in 1938, primarily because, I suppose, Australia has already surrendered.  


MISPRISON OF FELONY vs SEXISM: SEXISM WINS!

by Ian Wilson LL.B.
Could the Liberals be working on something? Julia Bishop is question time has been attacking Julia Gillard on Gillard’s role in an alleged union slush fund. It’s been the battle of Julia versus Julia. Bishop has challenged Gillard’s claim that Gillard did not know about the workings of the AWU “slush fund” that she as a lawyer set up for her 1992 boyfriend.
It seems that Gillard as a lawyer signed power of attorney for said boyfriend on February 4, 1993 and that Gillard still had “involvement in the AWU slush fund, the year after she claimed she had no involvement”. (The Australian 2 November 2012 p.1)

Gillard responded to Bishop by saying that she had done no wrong and stood by her August 23, 2012 press conference. But Bishop’s new evidence shows that there are matters not dealt with at that conference, namely the signed power of attorney. Where is all of this leading? As Bishop said: the relevant law involved in the registration of an association “specifically precluded the registration of an association for the purpose of providing personal profit or benefit to individuals”. (The Australian 30 October 2012, p.13)

As well, the law through the notion of misprison of felony, requires that people who are aware of the commission of a serious crime, report it. Legal professional privilege is not defence. So there are two possible offences here: the specific WA registration offence and misprison of felony. Is there good evidence?

Bishop’s new piece of evidence does not of itself prove either offence but it is highly suggestive evidence, and if further evidence comes up, it could prove highly relevant. But meanwhile the Labor Party chungs away at politically correct causes of the week: sexism one news cycle, then the Asian Century, and who knows what next, as bread and circuses are fed to the asses-masses.  


MURKY DERIVATIVES SCAMS COMING BEFORE THE COURTS IN OZ

"Standard & Poor's misled investors, Australian court says" Business Section BBC News November 2012
“An Australian court has ruled that S&P and ABN Amro Bank should pay damages. Australia's Federal Court has ruled that credit ratings agency Standard & Poor's (S&P) misled investors before the global financial crisis. S&P gave its safest credit rating, AAA, to complex and risky securities, which later lost most of their value. In what is regarded as a landmark ruling, the court ordered S&P and the bank which arranged the product, ABN Amro, to pay damages to investors. S&P said it planned to appeal against the decision. "We are disappointed with the Court's decision, we reject any suggestion our opinions were inappropriate, and we will appeal the Australian ruling, which relates to a specific CPDO rating," S&P, one of the world's big three ratings agencies, said in a statement.

The ruling is the first of its kind on a rating agency's liability for investors' losses. Federal Court Justice Jayne Jagot said that S&P was "misleading and deceptive" in its rating of two structured debt issues in 2006, which she described as "grotesquely complicated".
The case was brought against S&P and ABN Amro Bank by several Australian local governments which lost millions when the value of the investments was virtually wiped out during the financial crisis. Judge Jagot said S&P and ABN Amro would have to pay 30m Australian dollars ($31m; £19m) in damages to the authorities.

IMF Australia, a company listed on the Australian Stock Exchange which funds legal claims, said the ruling was "likely to have global implications and be felt hardest in Europe and the US, where similar products were sold to banks and pension funds". The firm said this could pave the way for investors in Europe to recover significant losses from both S&P and ABN Amro, which is now owned by Royal Bank of Scotland. It estimates that 2bn euros ($2.6bn; £1.6bn) of the same sort of financial products, called CPDOs or constant proportion debt obligations, were sold in Europe.

"Today's court ruling will enable the councils to recover a significant proportion of their losses that will now be available to provide services for their communities," said IMF Australia director John Walker. "It is welcome news and a relief for the tens of thousands of Australians who make up these local communities as they rely on the range of services provided by their local council."

On Target has reported on this scam a number of times. Another Ponzi Scheme Lurking in the Shadows?
Source: Local Opinion Editor, Barbara Hollingsworth The Examiner, 20 April 2010.
“Fannie Mae owns patent on residential 'cap and trade' exchange": - When he wasn't busy helping create a $127 billion mess for taxpayers to clean up, former Fannie Mae Chief Executive Officer Franklin Raines, two of his top underlings and select individuals in the "green" movement were inventing a patented system to trade residential carbon credits.

Patent No. 6904336 was approved by the U.S. Patent and Trade Office on Nov. 7, 2006 -- the day after Democrats took control of Congress. Former Sen. John Sununu, R-N.H., criticized the award at the time, pointing out that it had "nothing to do with Fannie Mae's charter, nothing to do with making mortgages more affordable." It wasn't about mortgages. It was about greenbacks.

The patent, which Fannie Mae confirmed it still owns with Cantor Fitzgerald subsidiary CO2e.com, gives the mortgage giant a lock on the fledgling carbon trading market, thus also giving it a major financial stake in the success of cap-and-trade legislation. Read further …


THE GREAT CALWELL MYTH

by Peter Ewer
Usually when John Pasquarelli (Pauline Hanson’s former advisor before she formed One Nation) writes an article on immigration he favourably mentions Labor immigration minister Arthur Calwell. Pasquarelli does so again in a recent article “What if Rudd and Turnbull Return?” The Australian 19 October 2012, p.12.
Pasquarelli seems to think highly of Calwell, even though this article describes him as a “socialist”. He says: “Calwell the socialist in 1972 was more conservative than the present day Coalition and that is cause for concern. Calwell was our greatest immigration minister”.

That line of thought is popular with conservative Mediterranean’s and Eastern Europeans who Calwell admitted en masse into the country. As an Irish Catholic socialist he had a dislike of the WASP culture he existed in and responded to change it. he also, apparently supported some version of race hate legislation long before it was brought in by the Keating government.

Calwell gave lip service in his autobiography “Be Just and Fear Not” (1972) to the White Australia Policy but did nothing to oppose its abandonment. That is the acid test. Calwell was thus the “greatest immigration minister” for promoting what would become multiculturalism and Asianisation. Relative to his time he was more radical than Paul Keating. Keating seems to be an explicit globalist and Asianist, whereas Calwell held to Fabian socialist ideals until the end.

BASIC FUND

The year's annual Basic Fund has been set the same as last year, a modest $60,000. The inaugural meeting was well over 60 years ago and now we are planning still further projects for the promotion, development and defence of our Christian-Social-Credit heritage and culture which is under constant attack.
The website, www.alor.org is proving an extremely valuable tool as we reach out to the younger generation.
Many of the older cassette tapes and videos have been converted to compact disk and DVD so new generations can keep in touch with their past and face the future with a new vision.
We look to our loyal supporters to once more give generously. While the League really does operate on a 'shoe string', it does have financial commitments which must be meet. It can only do so through your giving to the annual Basic Fund. Please don't let us
down. Decide to send a generous contribution today!

The early figure for the Basic Fund is $6,642.05. Thank you for such a great start. — National Director
