31 May 2013 Thought for the Week:
The Aristocracy of the Earth: “To follow reason, however arduous be the way; to accept such truth as may be revealed to us, however unpalatable; to refuse to put a rose-pink veil between ourselves and reality; to see life as it really is, without flinching, and without flinching to see oneself as one really is; this is the life for men, this is to be of the aristocracy of earth, let who will wear the crown or the mitre.
- - Sir Walter Murdock KCMG, 1874-1970. Founding Professor of English and later Chancellor of the University of Western Australia. Just prior to his death, Western Australian’s second university “Murdock University” was named after him.
The New Despotism: “ I will be no party to the doctrine,” Lord Hewart said “ that a Lord Chief justice, summoned to the House of Lords, as he is, not merely to vote, but also to advise is condemned to a lifelong and compulsory silence on the affairs of State.”
- - The Rt. Hon. Lord Hewart of Bury, 1929
WE ARE GENUINELY SORRY MRS BESS PRICE
Why this deadly silence when our women are dying?
"Politicians have found that, if you erode civil liberties and human rights in the name of defending them, you will not only get away with it, but even be allowed to boast about it!"
“Yes, there could, and possibly will come "sanctions" against Australia for its "abhorrent" treatment of its Aborigines, and an "outraged" international community (don't ask us where you'll find this monster!) will press hard on the government of the day, at Canberra. So don't let us kid ourselves that, because of "Labor's" temporary electoral difficulties, the Bill of Rights threat has lessened. It hasn't.
Now to the year 2013: Tony Abbott has promised to hold a referendum acknowledging the Aboriginal people as the first Australians! Pray tell me Tony, just what will that do for the Aboriginal communities NOW? What are you and your party going to do NOW to help Mrs. Bess Price get some help for her people? Words, words, words, they’re not enough Tony. We were told that “by their fruits you will know them”, and the bitter fruits of both main political parties are there for all to see.
In his column 18 May, 2013, Andrew Bolt had some very telling points to make about Tony Abbott’s promise to hold a future referendum on the “acknowledgment of Aboriginal people as the first Australians”.
Mundine’s support does not show Abbott is ending the New Racism that most threatens to turn us into a nation of tribes.
Why this deadly silence when our women are dying? asks Bess
“Within the last four months, two more young mothers related to me were killed in Alice Springs Town Camp. One was injured mortally in public, in front of several families. Nobody acted to protect her. Dozens of my female relatives have been killed this way. Convictions usually lead to light sentences. I was told by a senior lawyer that no jury in Alice Springs will convict an Aboriginal person for murder if the victim is also Aboriginal and he or she is only stabbed once.
We all have done nothing effective to stop this from happening. It has been going on for decades. This week we heard outrage from the Stolen Generation Association because this government wants to put the safety and wellbeing of our children first before their (inaudible) culture. I am not talking about the children of the Stolen Generation. It is our children. Why hasn’t there been the same outrage over the continuing killing of our women and abuse and neglect of our kids? If these women victims were white, we would hear very loud outrage from feminists. If their killers had been white, we would hear outrage from the Indigenous activists. Why is there such a deafening silence when both victim and perpetrator are black? I believe that we can blame the politics of the progressive left and its comfortably middle class urban Indigenous supporters.
Because I have spoken out on this issue and others close to my heart, I have been routinely attacked by the left. Professor Larissa Behrendt claimed that what I say is more offensive than watching a man having sex with a horse. Her white professional protester colleague, Paddy Gibson, told the world that I was only doing it for the money and frequent flyer points.
The Crikey blogger, Bob Gosford, who calls himself ‘the Northern Myth’, calls me Bess ‘Gaol is Good for Aboriginal People’ Price and accuses me of ‘vaguely malevolent and populist buffoonery that is designed to capture the attention of the tutt-tutterers and spouted by politicians that inevitably have a short tenure in power’. In Brisbane, Tiga Bayles, using an Indigenous community owned radio station, told the whole world that I am ‘a head nodding Jacky-Jacky for the government’ and that I am ‘totally offensive and arrogant’ because I do not want people like Tiga who know nothing about us, speaking about my people. He and his friends laughed as they told the world that I am only interested in money.
When my daughter went to Sydney for the Deadly Awards, an Aboriginal interviewer for the Koori Radio Station in Redfern advised her not to tell anybody who her mother was. This is how these people show respect for family. In the last month, I have watched three of my sisters and a grand-daughter being buried.
These racists and sexists hypocrites sneer at our grief and care nothing for our suffering, but they are the darlings of the left. I wonder what would happen if Andrew Bolt had used insults like these against any Indigenous Australian. The hypocrisy of these people is incredible. But I am in good company. When Mantatjara Wilson, a wonderful strong compassionate women I called mother, told the world about the crimes against her children on national TV, back in 2007, with tears streaming down her face. The left-wing activist moved to undermine her. They went into the communities not to protect the kids but to find women who would oppose Mantatjara. They talked about outrage and shame, not because of the crimes you all know about but because somebody else was brave enough to tell the world about them and ask for help. That was what they called shameful.
They worry about the shame felt by perpetrators once they were exposed, not because of the agony of the victims and families. It is easy to find women who will support their men even though they are killers and rapists. Families always stand up for their own and those who call themselves progressive will always find those willing to stand beside them and betray their own women and kids.
A few others have stood up and faced the vicious criticism of the left. I acknowledge the wonderful work of Dr Hannah McGlade in Perth and Professor Marcia Langton in Melbourne. Warren Mundine and Noel Pearson have also spoken out. A conference of Aboriginal men in Alice Springs publicly apologised to Aboriginal women and kids for the violence and abuse men have inflicted on them. None of those people have received support from the left or from Labor governments.
The left has tried really hard to call us liars and to put us down for speaking the truth and for wanting to stop the killing and the sexual violence. But they have put no effort, none at all, into protecting our kids and women. The exception to this has been a determination of Minister Jenny Macklin, who I acknowledge for her courage in the face of strong criticism from her own party and the Greens.
I recently went to Sydney for the launch of a book called Liberating Aboriginal People from Violence by wonderful caring friend of mine Dr Stephanie Jarrett. My words are on the cover of her book. We need to support those who tell the truth. Dr Jarrett does that and she cares, maybe too much for her own good. I have seen the tears in her eyes and heard the passion in her voice when she talks about her murdered and bashed ones. I trust her completely, but, of course, those who are not interested in the truth are out to bring her down.
She has been attacked in the Monthly magazine by its editor John Van Tiggelen in an article called Thinking Backwards. Dr Jarrett is saying there are elements to our traditional culture that we must change if we are to stop the violence that is destroying us, and she is right.
Some people call this integration, others call it simulation because they want us to continue to live in poverty, violence and ignorance so we can play out their fantasies on what the word culture means. I call it problem solving and saving lives. The left has its own agenda and liberating our people from violence is not part of that agenda.
Van Tiggelen talks about the book Black Death - White Hands written by Paul Wilson in 1982. In that book Wilson argued that when a man called Owen Peters killed his girlfriend in Queensland it was actually because of white colonialism and racism. It was not the killer’s fault it was the whitefellas’ fault. This argument worked. Peters was only given a short sentence.
In 1991, Audrey Bolger of the ANU’s North Australian Research Unit, wrote a wonderful little book called Aboriginal Women and Violence. At last, somebody was taking notice. At last, a white woman was trying to get governments to act. She was ignored and, as far as I know, nobody tried again after that.
The report of the Royal Commission on Aboriginal Deaths in Custody said the same thing. In a way, she was right: my people need to act now to stop our own violence. But, in another way, this has given governments and the wider community an excuse for the big cop-out. Okay. We whitefellas caused the problem but only blackfellas will solve them, so we sit around waiting for that to happen.
We have had committees and research projects, and advisory councils, and ATSIC, and now we have A National Congress of Australia’s First People. Billions of dollars have been spent. We have had visits from the United Nations special rapporteurs, and Amnesty International Indigenous officers.
Not only have solutions not been found, but the most important issues are not even raised and talked about. I want to work through these issues and find solutions. For the left and for many Aboriginal politicians on the national stage, it seemed the only issues worth talking about were the Stolen Generations and Aboriginal deaths in custody. These are real issues that have to be addressed, but they were not the only issues.

USING REPRESENTATIVE GOVERNMENT TO BYPASS REPRESENTATIVE GOVERNMENT

CRU Associate, Amanda Sapienza, writes as follows about the Commonwealth's legislative response to the Williams case:
The genesis of the Bill in the High Court’s decision in Williams v Commonwealth  HCA 23 and the level of parliamentary scrutiny (or lack thereof) that the Bill received in the House of Representatives are discussed by Anne Twomey in an earlier post on this Blog:
THE ULTIMATE PROBLEM OF CAPITALISM
by Chris Knight
Spend some time reading this sort of stuff, along with a week of the Australian Financial Review and Wall Street Journal and you will see that these people are in an alternative reality, where MONEY rules. We are never told why such growth and money is a good thing because few of these corporates could fully enjoy their wealth – being busy, busy, busy, making more “wealth”.
They could easily be replaced in total by thinking machines. Indeed, the ultimate fate of capitalism could be just that: the end of life as thinking machines playing financial games with “1’s” and “0’s”. Products are made by one computer/robot and the “consumed” by being taken apart by another computer/robot. It would make as much sense as modern capitalism does today, and equally as alienated and de-humanised.
TOXIC FOOD FROM CHINA
by James Reed
Chinese food is regularly found to contain “unapproved chemicals, dyes, pesticides and outright fraud (fake food).” Heavy metals such as arsenic, cadmium, lead and mercury are routinely found. In the communist dictatorship of China, environmental regulations are not usually enforced and food fraud is seldom detected by a state system which itself is corrupt.
Mike Adams at Natural News.com speaks Mandarin Chinese, has lived in Asia and has worked in the food health industry for a decade. His own company has tested Chinese food and rejected it from suppliers because it did not meet quality control standards. He does not trust Chinese supplied food, i.e., food from China.
Meanwhile we have our own Asianising former PM John Howard telling us that the debate about a choice between the US and China is “infantile” because “we” can have both! (The Australian 16 May 2013, p.2) “We” are not in a position to choose, even if “we” refers to our local B-grade elites.

ALL ABORTION IS MURDER?
by Mrs Vera West
In this context it is good to see young students – including conservative woman founding pro-life clubs at university to take on the feminists. One thing which needs to be looked at by pro-life lawyers is that in most states abortion is legal to preserve the woman from serious danger to her life or health, or if the risk to the woman’s life or health is greater than it would be if the pregnancy was not terminated. In NSW the doctor must find an “economic, social or medical ground or reason” to avoid a “serious danger to the pregnant woman’s life or to her physical or mental health”.
Now, estimates of the number of abortions performed in Australia range from about 73,000 to 100,000 or more. To suppose that even a fraction of these meet the legal conditions for abortions is absurd. Medical advances have made having a baby safer than at any time in history.
IS MOST MEDICAL RESEARCH FALSE?
by Brian Simpson
Ansell describes the results: “Children as young as two years old are being diagnosed with bipolar disorder and treated with a cocktail of powerful drugs, many of which were not approved by the Food and Drug Administration… No one knows the total amount provided by drug companies to physicians, but I estimate from the annual reports of the top nine U.S. drug companies that it comes to tens of billions of dollars a year. By such means, the pharmaceutical industry has gained enormous control over how doctors evaluate and use its own products. Its extensive ties to physicians, particularly senior faculty at prestigious medical schools, affects the results of research, the way medicine is practiced, and even the definition of what constitutes a disease.”
This is a good example of the way mega-corporates come to rule the world and define “reality”. It shows the immense challenge we have in returning the world to health and sanity.
VACCINATIONS AND POLITICAL CORRECTNESS
by Mrs Vera West
The unvaccinated child is said to put other vaccinated children at risk? How? If the vaccine really did work, then there is nothing to fear – is there? Isn’t it the case that the vaccinated children are immuned? Oops, a slip of logic there.
It is known that some vaccines have produced adverse reactions in children with seizures and resulting in autism. Admittedly these cases are a minority, but not to be discounted. Is it wrong for a parent to want their child to get natural immunity, to childhood diseases like chicken pox, by actually getting the disease (which is mild) and having life immunity?
Of course this won’t be true for all diseases (e.g., cholera, small pox, etc) but is it irrational to minimize the amount of artificial drugs consumed? Surely not. So what possible justification could there be for “No Jab, No Play”? This is a clear violation of human rights and I for one, and you should too, protest to the NSW Human Rights and Equal Opportunity Commission.
ONE LAW FOR THEM; ANOTHER FOR THE REST OF US
by Peter Ewer:
Exhibit Two: “Poor Slugged for Court Fees as Boatpeople Get Free Ride,” The Australian 3 May 2013, p.6. Illegals in immigration detention will be given an exemption from court fees whenever they want to take legal action to aim at staying in dopey-Australia. But, as illegal immigrant litigation explodes, court fees for ordinary Australians has almost doubled since 2010. The aim was to bring in $104.2 million, so that it could be used on – guess who? Wouldn’t it be great if the ordinary Aussie stopped suffering in silence and got angry for a change and got together in their legal protests to tell the Rulers: No more – we have had it up to here with you mob!
ON THE PASSING OF MRS JOAN BENSON
by Bill Daly, New Zealand
“I first met Joan Benson in Canada in 1983 where her husband Ivor was one of the speakers at a conference in Calgary, Alberta, concerning the spiritual and moral defence of our once Christian Civilisation. Two years earlier Ivor had been a speaker at a similar conference in Auckland, New Zealand. It is possible that Joan accompanied Ivor in 1981 but I cannot recall. After the Calgary Conference, I had the privilege of travelling with them by private car and bus to Vancouver where we parted company - they to their home in South Africa and myself to New Zealand.
Few young men, I suspect, get to experience, over several days, the wonderful company of such an older and generous man - a man who was totally honest in every respect; who was completely humble and yet so accomplished; and had that rare depth of Christian faith that is always able to rely on a sense of humour, no matter what the situation.
My initial impression of Joan was that she was overly stern. But I soon discovered that Joan had a deep love and care of others. While she would not put up with nonsense from anyone, I never felt that she ever carried any malice or wish for harm. And, like Ivor, she also knew that evil exists and that real battles for freedom and truth have to be fought.
Joan was very motherly towards many others, especially younger people. During our Canadian trip she made the effort to talk to a pimple-faced young woman in a chemist shop and explain the benefits of eating a healthy diet, and that herbs and proper nutrients rather than chemicals would be helpful to her.
Shortly after their Canadian trip, Ivor and Joan moved to England and bought a small cottage near the centre of the delightfully historic village of Sudbury in Suffolk. They made it into a happy home for themselves and visitors. I stayed a few days with them in the mid 1980s. A decade later I spent a few months visiting various parts of England and Joan made her home readily available for me to stay as much as I wanted. I was there on and off for a couple of weeks and we became close friends.
I saw Joan on three later visits to the UK. On the last in 2007 I did not stay with her. She was frail and not in the best of health but had slowed her advancing glaucoma with nutritional supplements and diet changes and was still relatively active and interested in political and religious issues. We went to a church service one day.
I learnt so much from Ivor and Joan Benson. They reinforced the high regard I have for the late Russian writer and Christian patriot Alexander Solzhenitsyn whose life and writings are a powerful signpost for today's world. Ivor had been a highly respected journalist with British and South African newspapers before he realised that to be completely truthful to himself and God, he had to sever those ties and enter a less lucrative existence as a freelance researcher and writer, eventually establishing his own long running journal Behind the News.
