5 July 2013 Thought for the Week:
We Won! Section 13 of the Canadian Human Rights Act is Repealed!
Thanks to all the MPs, Senators and, most of all, the many free speech letter writers across this country. It has been a long fight. Marc Lemire deserves special credit for his ferocious fight which, on September 2, 2009, resulted in a Canadian Human Rights Tribunal ruling Sec. 13, essentially, unconstitutional. However, we cannot rest on our laurels.
We usually don't quote or acknowledge the anonymous smear artists at Anti-Racist Canada. After all, who goes around trying to answer graffiti on a washroom wall? ["Call Susie for a good time -- 403 -777-7777" "No, Susie is no fun."]
The Federal Court overturned most of the decision in the Lemire case and upheld the constitutionality -- minus the financial penalties -- of Sec. 13. This ruling is now being appealed to the Federal Court and CAFE is in the thick of the fray as an intervener.
Here's to free speech! I deeply regret my old comrade Doug Christie did not live to see this important victory.

LABOR LEADERSHIP CHANGE - BUT NO LABOR POLICY CHANGE?
Kevin Rudd has once again been ‘dug up’, ‘dusted off’ and re-presented to the Australian electorate as a credible PM by his desperate parliamentary colleagues. But let’s recall the last time he held the position and what James Reed wrote:
Write – ‘reduce immigration’ on ballot papers
In the election to come, let us do what we can to unseat her and as many big figures as possible. Don’t sit back on your hands doing nothing. Help independent candidates when you go for a walk, mail drop leaflets. Spread the idea of Denis McCormack’s by writing “reduce immigration” on all ballot papers. (I favour “stop immigration now!”)
A STARK VIEW OF AN EVIL TREE AND THE FRUITS THEREOF
by Wallace Klinck, Canada
During the Great Depression era of the nineteen-thirties, the late William Aberhart was so upset by the suicide of one of his students that he spearheaded a drive for the implementation of Social Credit in his own Canadian Province of Alberta. (social-credit.blogspot.com/2008/04/synopsis-of-social-credit.html) The actions resulted in a Government devoted to changing not only the Province and the Nation, but also the world at large. Only sabotage and betrayal halted the momentum which was established.
Where are such men of human sensitivity and integrity in today's jaded world?
WAVE OF SUICIDES CONTINUES IN RECESSION-HIT ITALY
(ANSA) - Turin - A former factory worker hanged himself in a wood near his home at Brusasco near Turin Sunday after becoming depressed because of fruitless job-seeking efforts, relatives said Monday. The 35-year-old was struggling with debts, police said.
On May 31 Italian President Giorgio Napolitano urged the government to try to stop a wave of suicides among the rising numbers of unemployed workers and debt-ridden businessmen in recession-hit Italy.
A fertiliser-factory owner killed himself near Pisa earlier last month while a man afraid of losing his job in an eyewear factory near Belluno and a carpenter whose business was in trouble in central Sardinia also took their own lives.
Businesses are closing at an unprecedented rate, employers' associations report, while unemployment is at a record high in Italy's worst recession for 20 years.
Napolitano has invoked the Constitution, which is based on labour, in an appeal for the nation's political parties, trade unions and businesses to combat unemployment.
Unemployment reached 12.8% in the first quarter of 2013, the highest since the first quarter of 1977, national statistics agency Istat said last month, with almost 3.3 million people out of work. Istat said 11% of them had given up hope of getting a job.
These people are not far from C.H. Douglas' National Dividend proposals.

RECOGNISE THIS: THE BATTLELINES HAVE BEEN DRAW ON ANOTHER CONSTITUTIONAL FIGHT
by Ian Wilson LL. B.
The idea is to connect to the 1967 “march” and the American Civil Rights marches of the 1960s. Claims have been made that the reforms “will bind us as a nation” (The Weekend Australian, May25-26, 2013, p.3) and will mean, “no more lost generations” (The Australian, May 27, 2013, p.6). None of this withstands analysis – the idea of a “lost generation” (rather than a “saved generation”) is highly contentious and even so, a “no” vote wouldn’t mean the past was going to be replicated. If anything, Aboriginal children today are less united if a “yes” vote gets through.
Noel Pearson (The Weekend Australian, May25-26, 2013, p.19) tells us that the idea of race, of biological or genetic differences is “outdated”, and hence the Constitution that mentions them needs to be corrected. By that logic, we should also repeal the Racial Discrimination Act, shouldn’t we, if race is a myth?!
Finally, mediate over the picture of Tony Abbott with Labor Minister Peter Garrett at the start of the Journey to Recognition relay in Melbourne. My question is: whose hand is “Tony Rabbit” holding in the photograph published on page 1 of The Australian, May 27, 2013? Is this a trick photograph?
APPLE CO-FOUNDER SLAMS NSA SPY PROGRAM
Apple co-founder Steve Wozniak is really, really concerned about the NSA spying scandal.
"All these things they talk about in the Constitution that made us so good as people, they're kind of nothing. They all dissolved with the Patriot Act," he said in the video interview.
Wozniak said when he was a kid, he was taught to fear Communist Russia because its government was known to spy on citizens and arrest them unlawfully without cause. "They followed their people, they snooped on them, they arrested people, put them in secret prisons-they disappeared them. We're getting more and more like that," Wozniak said in the video.
Wozniak also seems to believe Edward Snowden, the 29-year-old former NSA contractor who leaked details of the agency's surveillance tactics, is telling the truth in his descriptions of the powers he had. "That sort of structure is wrong," he said.
HAS NATIONAL SECURITY AGENCY BEEN BLACKMAILING SUPREME COURT?
Natural News’ Mike Adams writes:
In an article published on June 16, 2013, I wrote, "There could already be countless cases of the NSA using its god-like powers to blackmail people in key positions in the U.S. Senate, the House of Representatives, the State Department or even the US Supreme Court. There are virtually no limits to the abuses of this power." Learn more:

HOUSING: THE REAL COST OF AUSTRALIAN IMMIGRATION
by James Reed
Seldom though, is the real cause of this problem discussed: Australia’s insane Third World levels of population growth, fuelled by anti-Anglo genocidal immigration. It is a question of supply and demand with more people seeking a finite resource. This makes money, and pots of it, for the housing and construction industry, while Aussies are marginalised and dispossessed.
A report "Assessing the Costs of Alternative Development Paths in Australian Cities", released by the Curtin University Sustainability Policy Institute, Fremantle, found that the costs of connecting up a new house in the outer suburbs was $684,000 per dwelling or approximately $263,000 per person – read basically per migrant.
According to Infrastructure Partnerships Australia there is a national backlog of $770 billion (William Bourke, at http://abc.net.au/unleashed/39930.html). Bourke points out that if just the 147,000 ex-students with permanent residency stay then the state-level development costs for them is $38.7 billion, just to accommodate them. With family reunion (remember the majority are Asian), the costs reach $150 billion and beyond. All of that doesn’t include social and environmental costs.
The growth lobby wants ever more immigration, for some groups 500,000 per year, others 1,000,000 per year. At the 500,000 per year rate basic infrastructure costs are $263,000,000,000 ($263 billion) and at 1,000,000,000 basic infrastructure costs are $536 billion. Bankruptcy Australia here we come!
Along with this there is a seldom discussed crisis in civil engineering (my brother is a thinking retired civil engineer, so my thanks for this) about decaying infrastructure, especially concrete. For example, the American Society of Civil Engineers in its 2013 report card gives America’s infrastructure a D+ grade, a near failure due to delayed maintenance and underinvestment. The place, the sewers, concrete and roads will eventually fall apart. Today’s concrete doesn’t last like the concrete used by the ancient Romans and will fall apart in less than 100 years. Thanks to the growth Lobby, the future of the West is anti-growth and will resemble a post-apocalyptic movie.
“OUR URANIUM CAN HELP CHINA” AND OTHER CAPITALIST BABY TALK
by James Reed
Is this the same China whose cyber warfare includes stealing the floor plans of ASIO’s new building in Canberra? Is this the same China that for decades has sought to steal US military technology and whose hackers “have compromised many of the most advanced US weapons systems, including programs crucial to missile defences in Asia, warplanes and naval ships.” (The Australian 29 May 2013 p.8) A 2012 US congressional report said that China was “the most threatening actor in cyberspace”.
The vast influx of Chinese students undertaking US scientific careers has also meant that Chinese migrants are working on military projects, and as one article puts it “where individuals possess divided loyalties, the Chinese diaspora also has magnified the potential for espionage and other forms of technology leakage”. (The Australian 31 May 2013, p.10)
THE BOATS END WHEN WE END
by Peter West
Over 10,000 have been released into the community without adequate ASIO checks. (The Australian 6 June 2013, p.1) Hardly any of the 45,000 have been sent “home” – now they call Australia “home”.
From these illegals will come an endless chain of migration ultimately leading to millions of Muslims.
Don’t expect Tony Rabbit to do much about this – the problem is now entrenched. Sending the boats back to Indonesia was a good idea but it was squashed by the Indonesian ambassador who said it wouldn’t happen, presumably because Indonesia wouldn’t co-operate. Well if Mr. Rabbit had the guts he could threaten Indonesia with cutting off foreign aid. This is where abandoning the White Australia Policy and embracing Asianisation has led us. Maybe the population deserves the collapse of the health and social security systems.
NONSENSE ABOUT XENOPHOBIA AND THE 457 VISA DEBATE
by Peter West
Yes, true and rightly so in my opinion. The White Australia policy was not “shameful”, but a survival measure. Without it, “Australia” would be little more than a burnt out shell of territory with an Asian population (Whites extinct) living in an appalling polluted environment. That is the logical conclusion of the one world capitalist globalist dream. It is already happening.
Let us be clear – the capitalist class love the 457 visas exactly for the reasons Gillard gave – although she is, of course, not likely to do much about it, only wishing to sound like she is doing something in the lead up to the election. 457 visas result in just more migrants and less jobs for locals. The capitalists make money out of migration (e.g., real estate, forcing Aussies to live like sardines) and don’t pay the social and environmental costs. A group whose only concern is self-interested profit maximisation, should not be permitted to set the agenda for society. Aussies of Australia unite: you have nothing to lose but your chains!
ASIA WAR: WILL THE “ASIAN CENTURY” LAST 15 MINUTES?
by James Read
Kiss the Asian century goodbye as World War V (III = Cold War; IV = War on terror) erupts. Meanwhile Han Xiaoping, an adviser to the communist Chinese government in Beijing has said “Australia wants to hold all the aces and does not treat China in a friendly manner.” (The Australian, April 4, 2013, p.1) In his opinion, Australia needs to encourage more foreign investment “to shore up future gas supplies and meet the rising demand from the Asian region”. Yes, those who warned the white race 100 years ago about the threat of Asia were right.
Wouldn’t it be nice if we had gone down the road of national self-sufficiency and were not at the mercy of the mining capitalists and migration lobby? If only past generations had taken a stand. But, as an old timer said to me, even if you went back in time and told them what was going to happen (and showed papers, photographs and videos), people wouldn’t believe it and would just go about their day, eating, drinking, reproducing and dying. What is wrong with us! Why so stupid?
KERMIT THE ABORTIONIST
by Mrs Vera West
At present Kermit the abortionist is being prosecuted with seven counts of first-degree murder in Philadelphia. An unlicensed medical school graduate helped snip spinal cords of babies born alive after abortions. Some babies screamed before being beheaded. Gosnell kept jars containing foetus body parts such as severed feet. Hundreds of spine-severings were performed.
In her article Mrs Francis notes that Victoria has abortion on demand up to 24 weeks gestation and if the consent of two doctors is given, right up to birth. I did not know that. Mrs Francis asked both the Police Minister and Health Minister what happens to babies born alive after abortions. She, at the time of printing, had not received an answer.
JULIA, ABORTION AND THE GENDER WARS
A politically desperate Julia Gillard has plunged back into gender wars claiming that electing Tony Rabbit would make abortion “the political plaything of men who think they know better”. My ooh my, how the feminists love their “abortion rights”.
Yes, from the party that gave us the magnificent White Australia Policy, to this nonsense. Deputy Opposition leader Julie Bishop pointed out the obvious – that the Liberals will not change the abortion law. Of course not, this party is just the Labor Party on good wine. But we should ask Gillard about the fate of babies born alive after abortions.
AMERICA BECOMES MEXICO
by Chris Knight
Continuing from her enlightenment Coulter goes on to say
Coulter goes off then about welfare dependency and all that is dear to the hearts of capitalist-loving-libertarians (free enterprise will save us), without seeing the racial implications. Across the West, there was an attack on established white populations and a drive to demographically displace them. She needs to ask, “who and what groups did this and who benefits from destroying White Europeans?”
Any ideas? Marco Rubio’s amnesty bill will give 11 million illegal immigrants citizenship. With their extended families the once-US will have 80 million Hispanics. America becomes Mexico. But will that make the ruling elite feel safe, if the result is the breakup of America?
Consider Edwin Rubenstein’s article “Lessons from 1965: More Immigrants = More Violent Crime”
Rubenstein concludes: “Had national crime rates fallen to 1965 levels, there would have been 628,000 fewer violent crimes committed in the U.S. in 2010 – a reduction of 50.4% . . . Immigrants and their U.S.-born children, have prevented violent crime from falling as far as it otherwise would have done since 1990.” The future? – God help America, and God help us.
RACE AND THE ATTORNEY GENERAL
by Ian Wilson LL.B.
Modifying section 18 C does not change the fact that Australia has, and will still have thought control “hate-speech” laws. Nor is the London Declaration explicit about what laws should be enacted; one interpretation is that there is no legal obligation to enact laws and that such a Declaration, signed by individuals, has no legislative force. So, from a strictly legal point of view, the Attorney General is wrong. In the extreme, one could support the Declaration and even repeal section 18 C, as one support is for “ethics”, the other for “law”.
A recent article “Discrimination Laws Still Flawed” (The Weekend Australian, May 25-26, 2013, p.14) indicates that the law/race/multiculturalism/ethnic lobby are still working for discrimination law “consolidation” which if realized, you can be sure will further restrict free speech. At least the coming reign of the hopeless Liberals will end the Roxon–Dreyfus scheme until the next time round. Hopefully civilisation would have collapsed by then, saving us from that fate.
NO FREE SPEECH AT THE MODERN MULTICULTIVERSITY
by Geoffrey Hunter M.A.
I was simply stunned to read that Sydney law graduate and university medallist Daniel Ward criticized Sydney University’s policy on harassment which bans “behaviour that offends, insults, humiliates or intimidates a person” on grounds of sex, race, disability and political and religious belief.
This goes much further than existing discrimination law which stops short of “protecting” politics, but which Labor intends to implement, in due course.
Indeed, but that shouldn’t worry the Australian University establishment. The university, like the wider Australian “community” is basically a “market” and the ban on “harassment”, common across Australian campuses, is simply necessary to ensure peace among education consumers, the possibility of conflicts now too high. So I understand why universities have such policies.
THE LIBERALS FALLING OVER THEMSELVES IN POLITICAL CORRECTNESS
by Betty Luks
So much for the Libs supporting freedom of intellectual inquiry! You can be sure that funds will not be cut for a multitude of other political activities on campuses much more destructive of the Australian community. This story is a good example of what the Liberal party is really about.
FRIENDS, THERE IS A CONSPIRACY AND ROLLING STONE MAGAZINE TELLS YOU SO
by James Reed
First there was the Libor scandal where between 7 and 16 megabanks manipulated global interest rates interfering with in excess of $US 500 trillion of financial instruments.
Now the London-based firm ICAP, “the world’s largest broker of interest-rate swaps” is being investigated by American authorities for similar Libor behaviours, namely working with 15 of the megabanks to manipulate ISPA fix, which is used to calculate the prices of interest-rate swaps.
The manipulation of gold and silver prices is also likely. In fact the US federal court in a civil action against banks for Libor-style offences was dismissed on the basis that the banks’ argument was accepted: it’s the fault of people for believing that banks ever competed. Collusion, not competition, generates the cosmically high super-wealth that the gangster banksters love. So, all that talk about the “free market” – why it’s just a joke. And the bankers laugh all the way to, well, the bank.
