On Target

7 June 2013 Thought for the Week:

National Sovereignty: Before going any further a word needs to be said about whose country this is, and about national sovereignty, the right of a nation to govern its own affairs. The ‘sovereign’ is the ultimate authority in any political system, the person or body with the ultimate say. It might be the king or queen, or a dictator, or it might be the government. Under the Australian Constitution it happens to be the people.

The lie has been invented that there is something wrong with the Australian Constitution, that it is ‘outmoded’, or that it was inherited from ‘the British’. While no Constitution is perfect, there is nothing fundamentally wrong with the Australian Constitution. It is uniquely Australian, and it has been one of the most successful Constitutions in the world. T he Australian nation, before globalists started transforming it on the sly, was living proof of that. Australia was one of the most politically stable, socially tolerant societies in the world.

The problem with the Australian Constitution lies with the people presently entrusted with upholding it. No Constitution can work if its caretakers are trying constantly to subvert it and to replace it with something else, and that is no ‘conspiracy theory’, their intentions are quite open: a Republic, a new Constitution, and a new flag.

The only thing ‘outmoded’ about the Australian Constitution is that it makes the people the sovereign. It stands for proper democracy: government of the people by the people, something now being labelled ‘populism’. It is the Constitution of a self-governing people in a self-governing nation, and as will be seen in a moment, such a concept has no place in the intended new global order.

The Commonwealth of Australia Constitution Act, of which the actual Constitution is a part, states clearly that ‘The Commonwealth’ means the people of Australia [CACA s.3]: ‘It shall be lawful for the Queen.....to declare by proclamation that....the people of [the various states].....shall be united in a Federal Commonwealth under the name of the Commonwealth of Australia.... This means that the Australian people are The Commonwealth of Australia (common weal, meaning ‘common well being’…ed).

ONLY THE QUEEN HAS BEEN OUR CONSTANT

At her Coronation 60 years ago, on June 2 1953, the most important moment for Elizabeth II was not the crowning but swearing to God to serve her people all her life
- - - William Shawcross  

“The person who is greatest among you must be your servant”
- - Matthew 23:11

William Shawcross wrote in The Telegraph, 25 May 2013: Maybe we would have survived all this in a republic, too. But I think it is not coincidental that, instead of one politician succeeding another as president, we have, at the centre of the tempest, a still, small voice of calm.
In seeking to understand how Her Majesty has done it – how she still does it at the age of 87 – I think one has to look to her belief in God. She was brought up by a mother who was taught by her own mother (Lady Strathmore) to believe in three things: love of God, love of family, love of country; as well as cherishing a sense of duty, Princess Elizabeth inherited all those commitments.

In advance of her Coronation, Elizabeth said...“I want to ask you all, whatever your religion may be, to pray for me… to pray that Christ may give me wisdom and strength to carry out the solemn promises I shall be making, and that I may faithfully serve him, and you, all the days of my life.” That prayer, that commitment, has informed her and guided her always.

One of the most difficult questions was whether to allow the newfangled machinery of television into Westminster Abbey to transmit the great event live. This was a momentous decision. The Queen was at first against the idea, fearing the eyes of the world on her every facial movement and on possible mistakes. These were sacred rituals, surely not to be flashed live around the country and thence at once around the world.

Churchill agreed with her. The great war leader had been aghast at the death of the King and worried that he barely knew his new monarch. He need not have worried; in a romantic, chivalrous manner, he fell instantly in love with her. Although she has always been careful never to say that she liked one premier more than another, her affection for Churchill was enduring. Their weekly meetings, she once said, were “always such fun”.
When the decision to keep television cameras away from the Abbey was announced in October 1952, there were immediate protests from the BBC (which had a TV monopoly in those days) and clear disappointment from the public. The Queen gave way, insisting only that there should be no close-ups of her face at the most sacred moments of all – when she was anointed and took Communion. She wanted her moments with God to remain unseen by the world…

The service was clearly Christian but with elements of older, almost primaeval, rituals of sacrifice and dedication. The words resound with glory. It began with the Archbishop of Canterbury, Geoffrey Fisher, declaring to the bishops: “Sirs, I present unto you Queen Elizabeth, your undoubted Queen.” This was followed by cries of “God save the Queen” and the soundings of trumpets.

Then she took the oaths of office. She swore to govern her peoples all over the world, to judge with law, justice and mercy, to maintain the law of God, and “to preserve inviolably the settlement of the Church of England”. Laying her right hand upon the Bible, she said, “The things which I have here before promised, I will perform and keep. So help me God.”…

At Christmas 2000, Her Majesy explained: “For me, the teachings of Christ and my own personal accountability before God provide a framework in which I try to live my life.” That Christian framework has enabled her to keep every one of the vows she made on that wet summer’s day 60 years ago.


ROOTS OF CHRISTIAN CONSTITUTIONAL HERITAGE

Eric Butler wrote in 1988
“This heritage is one, which Australians share with other English-speaking nations, including the United States. That heritage reaches back through the mists of antiquity, back to the signing of the Magna Carta in England, back to those early centuries when England was being Christianised, and even back to the very beginning of Christianity itself.

At a time when great stress is placed upon the alleged virtues of the political vote, and democracy is equated with something known as "majority rule", it is essential to recall that the undergirding Christian value system of Western European Civilisation, was established long before the widespread use of the political vote… The social philosophy of traditional Christianity favoured the de-centralisation of all power as a reflection of Reality…

The Australian Constitution – every effort made to keep power decentralised
The framers of the Australian Federal Constitution grappled with the problem of how could the creators of the proposed Federal government, the States, whose Trinitarian constitutions, consisting of Lower Houses, Upper Houses, originally elected on a more limited franchise, and the Crown, derived from Great Britain, ensure that the inevitable natural centralising tendency of the Federal government be checked?

Every effort was made to keep power decentralised, with the Federal government having only limited powers in areas such as Defence and External Powers. The smaller States only eventually accepted Federation with the provision for a Senate in which all States, irrespective of size and population, would be equally represented, and possessing sufficient power to check the policies of any government. The Australian Senate (was) the most powerful Upper House in any Common Law country and, as demonstrated in 1975, can even force a government to face the electors at an early election by refusing to pass Supply.

Contrary to the myths of John Pilger and others, that both the American C.I.A. and British Intelligence were responsible for the Crown's representative, Sir John Kerr, destroying the Whitlam government, the truth is that the Senate had been blocking Supply for some time before Sir John Kerr, acting in accordance with the Constitution, ordered an election at which the people could say what they felt. What could be more democratic?...”

COMING REFERENDUM: NOTHING TO DO WITH LOCAL COMMUNITIES

“Don't listen to what Canberra says,” writes Chris Berg (The Age 5 May 2013).

“The local government referendum has nothing to do with local communities or anything like that. It's a power play - part of a long-running campaign by the Commonwealth to free its spending decisions from parliamentary scrutiny and undermine the states. To understand the significance of the September referendum, we have to go back to an obscure bill passed by Parliament last June: the Financial Framework Legislation Amendment Bill (No 3) 2012. This bill received almost no press attention. It was supported by all sides of Parliament. The Coalition half-heartedly put up an amendment, but once that was rejected, it backed the bill anyway. The bill was made law in three hours.

Yet it was one of the most undemocratic and scandalous pieces of legislation passed in recent years. Forget the carbon tax. This is what Australia should be most angry about. The bill authorises the government to spend money on 415 areas of public policy without having to ask Parliament for permission ever again.

It was quickly written in the wake of the successful High Court challenge to the school chaplains program. The court found that if the government wanted to spend money on a program, it was required to pass a valid law through Parliament - which it had not done in the case of school chaplains. This is not a trivial requirement. Parliamentary scrutiny is the essence of representative democracy.

The government's solution was smart-alecky, brazen and obnoxious. The Financial Framework Legislation Amendment simply authorised spending on everything at one fell swoop - everything from United Nations contributions, to ''diversity and social cohesion'' grants, to industry subsidies. Local government is in there, too. Now the government can do anything it wants. The bill even says the government can spend what it likes on ''political party secretariat training''. The constitutional scholar Anne Twomey has described this as an ''abject surrender'' by Parliament to the executive.

The proposed local government referendum builds on the 2012 bill. The Commonwealth wants free rein to fund councils directly, bypassing state governments. True, it wouldn't be a new power. The Commonwealth has been giving money to local government for a while. Some of the most wasteful parts of Kevin Rudd's stimulus program went through councils… What if the referendum fails? Will it stop handing cash to local government? Of course not. No, the real story here is how the Commonwealth is trying to erase all parliamentary, legal, and constitutional impediments that limit its spending. The referendum is just a small skirmish in a larger war.

Local government recognition has always been a tool to neuter the states. The last two referendums on this question were under Labor. Both failed. Gough Whitlam was clear about his real goal during the 1974 attempt. States had ''little relevance to today's needs''. Funding local government directly would undermine the power and authority of those states. The Coalition might be expected to oppose Gillard's referendum. Federalism is a bedrock principle of Australian liberalism. But Tony Abbott is no fan of the states, either. He supports a yes vote…” (emphasis added..ed)


JEREMY LEE ONCE ASKED US - WHAT WILL WE TELL OUR CHILDREN?

In 1997 Jeremy Lee published a comprehensive account of the United Nations-inspired policies Australians were being exposed to, he also listed some of the groups already involved in implementing the United Nations’ policies into Australian life. There are too many to list in this article but we should look closely at some of them and how they tie up with the push to include Local Government recognition in our federal Constitution.

Let’s start with the World Trade Organisation (WTO)
Jeremy writes: “In the name of ‘free-trade‘ the World Trade Organisation has a mass of regulations and demands for uniformity. One of these is ‘compulsory competition‘ - a self-contradictory expression if ever there was one. One barrier to be crossed is the division of powers in federal systems. Uniform compulsion works best under central direction.

The Hilmer Report and the subsequent Competition Commissions are the Australian equivalent of what is being forced on all industrial economies. Section 92 of the Constitution, allowing free trade between the States, is not good enough; the WTO demands uniformity across nations.

Enter the Council of Australian Governments (COAG): “This has been done with the emergence of a fourth tier of government in Australia, the Council of Australian Governments (COAG), where State Premiers are coerced into legislating by uniform direction. With a central government that openly coerces the States through its monopoly of public credit-allocation, the State governments have no option but to obey or be pauperised. Even their obedience is not enough.

In the face of the Constitution, and contrary to the expressed will of the people, Canberra is directly enlisting Local Government, through Regional Organisation Councils (R.O.C.s) into national compliance. Increasingly, Councils are being forced to police the global demands of the WTO, through planning, standardisation and environmental programmes at local level.

Mutterings by local councillors who find themselves increasingly constricted by centrally-directed programmes in these areas have been muted by turning Council representation from a voluntary service into a paid profession. Councils are amalgamated and corporatised. High-salary CEOs direct paid-councillors on what is to be done. The answer to local resistance is centralisation through amalgamation.

And then along came the International Union of Local Authorities (IULA):
“The role of another international body, the International Union of Local Authorities, (I.U.L.A.) is of increasing importance. The IULA Declaration demands that Local Government be nationally organised and directed. This flies in the face of Australia's constitutional arrangements, which allow the Commonwealth no role in Local Councils.

International Organisation for Standardisation (IOS): For the sake of the environment – of course!
Continuing Jeremy’s explanation:
“In July 1996 the Financial Review reported an ominous development: "Australian companies will have to pay up to $200,000 each to comply with new global environmental management standards. The new rules, imposed by the International Organisation for Standardisation, have sent shock waves through local industry, which claims they could become a barrier to international trade. The code, which is expected to come into force in the next 12 months, will hit the small business sector particularly hard. Business groups are worried that the only people to benefit from the ISO 14000 series will be accreditation consultancies set up to steer companies through a complex compliance process. There are growing concerns that the new standards, like their predecessor the ISO 9000 series, will contribute little to improving environmental standards for business and will result in higher prices for consumers.

Where did this incredible stuff originate? Earth Summit 1992 - of course!
“The new ISO 14000 series evolved out of the Earth Summit held in Rio de Janeiro in 1992, as well as the seven-year negotiations of the Uruguay Round of the General Agreement on Tariffs and Trade…

Eleven months later, a major conference of 1,100 people from 50 nations was held in Newcastle, NSW. Registration fees were $900 per head - over $1 million for the Conference.
In attendance were Councillor Peter Woods, representing I.U.L.A.; Councillor John Campbell, Deputy Lord Mayor of Brisbane, representing A.L.G.A, the ‘Australian Local Government Association, and Jeb Brugmann, representing the International Council for Local Environmental Institutions (I.C.L.E.I) from Canada.

The League has been reporting on ICLEI for quite some time now:
Oct 12, 2012 ... At recent League seminars, national director Louis Cook, presented papers on ICLEI www.alor.org/Volume48/Vol48No40.htm
Nov 9, 2012 ... “ICLEI – Local Governments for Sustainability is an international ... For the Australian scene you need to read all about ICLEI - and act on it! www.alor.org/Volume48/Vol48No44.htm

Nov 2, 2012 ... For the Australian scene you need to read all about ICLEI - and act on it!
“ Confronting Earth Summit: Agenda 21” www.alor.org/Volume48/Vol48No43.htm

Continuing Jeremy Lee: Interestingly, also attending were Premier Bob Carr from NSW, and Federal Minister for the Environment Senator Robert Hill. A local press report said:
"The world's local governments urgently needed to cut waste and ensure global sustainability was achieved by the year 2000, delegates to the Pathways to Sustainability conference were told yesterday. The conference concluded yesterday afternoon with the signing of the Newcastle Declaration, a commitment to action for local governments round the world to adopt sustainable development practices. The document will be presented to a special session of the United Nations in New York this month. . . "

The Global Gulag: “What the press report did not mention was that NSW Premier Bob Carr promised to reform the NSW Local Government Act to comply with international requirements. Nor did it mention a devastating paper given by a nuclear physicist, Dr Nandana Shiva, Director of the Research Foundation for Science, Technology and Natural Resources in India. Dr Shiva electrified the audience by laying the blame for environmental destruction on the multinationals.

While free trade may be free for the multinationals, it is not free for the people, she claimed, and as soon as foreign investment comes into a country, the people are reduced to poverty. She pointed out that multinationals were dumping toxic waste in India, as they had done in Zaire. She said that last year India had imported 2 million tonnes of wheat, and exported 2 million tonnes of wheat! There were four million tonnes of wheat somewhere, but the people were still starving.

Competition, she said, is not true competition at all, but is about mergers of competitors - meaning less competition. She called it ‘bio-piracy’. She gave the example of the grain firm Cargill, the biggest private company in the world, which provided university funding, but demanded from the recipient-university the production of hybrid seeds for Cargill's commercial benefit, and not that of the university.
She centred much of the blame on the World Bank and the World Trade Organisation. Yet no word of this paper in the Australian Press! It is obvious that, as this global programme lurches towards critical mass, and crisis escalates, a growing minority will begin to perceive the nature of their own troubles and the wider source from whence it is derived…” (emphasis added..ed)

Fellow Australians, don’t be short sighted. In the light of the above just what do you think will happen should you vote for Local Councils to be recognised in our federal Constitution? How much control will you have over what your Local Council does should all power and direction be centred in that world body known as the United Nations?


"OBAMA IS AN ‘ELECTED DICTATOR’" Ron Paul spells it out:

Fox Host: "You called the President recently, an elected dictator. What do you mean by that?"
Ron Paul: "Well, you know, a couple weeks ago he announced Congress is too slow. They don’t move fast enough. So, he was very bold about it. He says, ‘I’m going to pass my legislation one piece at a time. His stimulus package. I’ll write an executive order every week’.
I mean that is arrogant. He is flaunting the Constitution and the whole principles of how we are supposed to operate. Even though these Executive Orders have been around for a long time and I’ve complained about them a long time. But the idea that they can just do this and take over the legislative function and brag about it and Congress does nothing and the courts do nothing."

MEATCLEAVER MULTICULTURALISM

by Peter West
The images of two British-Nigerians blacks who slaughtered a British soldier with knives and a meat cleaver, beheading him, has gone ‘viral’ on the net. Prime Minister David Cameron said, “The people who did this were trying to divide us.”

Well, I mean to say, one of the killers, drenched in the white man’s blood did say he wanted “to start a war in London tonight.” The authorities immediately went on the alert when threats of riots from “far right” groups were made. I don’t imagine there was much of a riot, maybe a couple of old timers shivering in the cold. But it is a good excuse to crack down on anyone objecting to what Britain has been transformed into.

A good indication of what this is, is given by Tobias Langdon “The Blessings of Diversity: Muslim Sex-Crimes 101 with Statistical Sue” (Occidental Observer)

V IS FOR VIBRANCY… You know how it goes. You wait months for a depraved-gang-rape-and-child-prostitution trial —and then two come along at once:

Asian grooming gang convicted of appalling acts of depravity on children

Police and social services have apologised for the failings and missed opportunities that allowed a gang of men to carry out appalling abuse on young girls in Oxford for six years. When Thames Valley Police was first made aware of allegations of rape and sexual assault against teenagers in August 2006 — and on at least three further occasions — it failed to pursue the investigations after the terrified victims withdrew their complaints.

Seven men of Asian [= Pakistani] or North African origin were found guilty of grooming six vulnerable white girls before putting them through a “living hell” during which they were forced to commit acts of “extreme depravity”. In a case that bears harrowing similarities to the Rochdale grooming scandal, carefully chosen victims were showered with gifts and plied with alcohol and drugs before being subjected to years of terrifying abuse.

The gang recruited its victims from the Oxford area between May 2004 and January last year, deliberately targeting vulnerable girls. … Once under their control the abusers forced the girls to have sex using threats of extreme violence. Some were gang-raped, while others were prostituted to men who would travel from all parts of the country to have sex with them. If the girls did not comply, they were beaten and burned with cigarettes. One girl was even branded with her abusers’ initials. When another victim became pregnant aged 12, she was forced to undergo a dangerous backstreet abortion. Another was abused with sex toys to “prepare” her for one of the gang rapes. …

A serious case review has been announced while Thames Valley Police and Oxfordshire county council apologised for their failure to spot the pattern of abuse earlier. Det Chief Sup Rob Mason said:
“Thames Valley Police and Oxfordshire county council social services deeply regret that this activity wasn’t identified sooner and that we were too reliant on victims supporting criminal proceedings, and that they suffered a terrible ordeal.”

Joanna Simons, the chief executive of Oxfordshire county council, also apologised to the victims. She said: “We are incredibly sorry we were not able to stop it any sooner. We were up against a gang of devious criminals. The girls thought they were their friends.”…

The case is the latest high-profile trial involving Asian gangs convicted of targeting and abusing vulnerable white girls. Last May eight men of Pakistani origin and one Afghan were convicted of trafficking and raping girls in the Rochdale area. Last week a gang of Asian men who groomed vulnerable white girls in Shropshire between 2006 and 2009 were jailed for more than 50 years.

Mohammed Shafiq, the chief executive of the Ramadhan Foundation, said:
“The majority of Asians from all backgrounds abhor these crimes these criminals have brought shame on themselves and their families and the wider Asian communities. We have to use our faith to actually tell how horrific these crimes are and how forbidden they are in our faith.”

Two sets of brothers, Akhtar Dogar, 32, and Anjum Dogar, 31, and Mohammed Karrar, 38, and Bassam Karrar, 33, were convicted with Kamar Jamil, 27, Assad Hussain, 32, and Zeeshan Ahmed, 27. (Asian grooming gang convicted of appalling acts of depravity on children, The Daily Telegraph, 17 May 2013)

Horror of Telford girls’ sex abuse ordeal
Today the Shropshire Star can finally tell the horrific story of sexual abuse and exploitation of schoolgirls by a group of men in Telford.… Today’s High Court ruling brings to an end a three-year investigation into a child prostitution ring in Telford. Youth workers first raised the alarm when teenage girls in Wellington, some as young as 13, started telling them the same stories about men they were seeing. The subsequent police investigation, dubbed Operation Chalice, revealed details of a network of men from the Muslim community who targeted young and vulnerable teenage girls.

After West Mercia Police’s investigation into suspected under-age sex and child prostitution, seven men were finally convicted in cases stretching over two years. Four experienced judges have heard distressing evidence from four young women, who were aged 13 to 16 when they were abused during a two-year period between 2007 and 2009.
The leading players in the abuse were brothers, Ahdel and Mubarek Ali, who received long jail sentences after an eight-week trial. Ahdel Ali, 25, was given a 26-year extended sentence – 18 years’ immediate custody with an additional eight-year period on licence after release.
His 29-year-old brother, Mubarek Ali, was given 22 years, 14 years’ immediate custody and eight years on licence, for seven offences – four of controlling child prostitution, causing child prostitution and two offences of trafficking in the UK for the purpose of prostitution, involving two of the victims. Both men were made the subject of lifelong Sexual Offences Prevention Orders.

Also convicted were Mohammed Ali Sultan, 26; Tanveer Ahmed, 40; Mohammed Islam Choudhrey, 53; Mahroof Khan, 35, and Mohammed Younis, 60. This afternoon, Detective Chief Inspector Neil Jamieson, who was the senior investigating officer on Operation Chalice, said:
“We are pleased with the convictions we have achieved as a result of this operation – an operation that is among the most complex West Mercia Police has ever undertaken. The convictions are the result of several years’ hard work from an investigative team that at times has contained more than 50 police officers. …”

Laura Johnston, director of children’s services at Telford & Wrekin Council, said alarm bells first started to ring when council staff working with young people realised some young women were talking about seeing the same men and being taken to the same places. Mrs Johnston said:
“It was as a result of this that the police were alerted and we continued to work very closely with the police as the investigation that became Operation Chalice developed, ultimately leading to the subsequent successfully prosecuted court case. It has been extremely difficult for the victims, who were all vulnerable young women.
We are pleased that the judicial process has resulted in a number of convictions and consequent jail sentences. We have been clear from the start that this is purely about criminal behaviour by a few individuals.” (Horror of Telford girls’ sex abuse ordeal, The Shropshire Star, 10 May, 2013)…”  


ANJEM CHOUDRY REFUSES TO ABHOR WOOLICH ATTACK

Radical Islamist preacher Anjem Choudary has said he was "shocked" by the murder of a soldier in Woolwich, but has refused to condemn the attack. Drummer Lee Rigby was killed in broad daylight on Wednesday by two men, who were subsequently shot by police. The suspects, now known to be Michael Adebolajo and Michael Adebowale, were known to security services.

Mr Choudary told the BBC's Newsnight programme that he encountered Adebolajo at a number of Islamist demonstrations. "When I saw what took place I was shocked... but what he said in the clip, I think not many Muslims can disagree with," he added…BBC 24 May 2013. Watch here 


LETTERS TO THE PRESS

Vote NO at September Referendum: The Editor, ‘News’, 24 May 2013.
Dear Sir,
Please allow me to comment on the article ‘Ryan takes a pot shot at Powell as councillors back yes vote’ (News May 22, 2013, page 4).
Are City of Greater Shepparton councillors stepping out of their league? By what authority has $26,535 of ratepayer’s funds been committed to campaign for a ‘yes’ vote?
If some residents of Shepparton wanted a similar amount to advocate a ‘NO’ vote then surely they should be entitled to it as a precedent has been set. Further, if individual councillors want to support a ‘yes’ campaign then it should come out of their own personal pockets and not from ‘ratepayer funds’!
The foregoing indicates a likely misuse of council funds and a ‘black mark’ on CoGS. Sadly, councillors who support a ‘yes’ vote are ignorant of early Australian political history and as Local Government Minister, Jeanette Powell says “Local Government is already recognised in the Victorian Constitution” and “We (the Victorian Government) think there is a strong possibility that Victorian councils will be financially disadvantaged by this change” (News, May 20, 2013. Page 5).
I believe this is a true statement and sufficient reason for voters to deliver a resounding NO for any change to the Australian Constitution in September.
Meanwhile, Councillor Ryan would be well advised to get off the ‘pot’ and stick to issues directly affecting those he is supposed to represent instead of wasting ratepayer’s hard earned money on hazy propositions of doubtful value.

London Declaration on Combating Anti-Semitism: To the Editor of The Australian, 28th May 2013
Senator Brandis is wrong to say that nothing in the London Declaration on Combating Anti-Semitism 'acts as a constraint on intellectual freedom' ('Coalition targeted on race', 28/5).
On the contrary, the whole drift of that document is towards restricting free speech to the advantage of sections of the world Jewish community.
In particular, its opposition to the 'denial, denigration or trivialisation' of the Holocaust amounts to a direct attack on the academic freedom of Holocaust revisionists, whose theses should be published more widely in the Western media and disputed by argument, not by repressive laws or cultural outlawing.
