Holy Week 22 April 2011 Thought for the Week:
HE CHOSE A CROSS –
“When the world had its beginning, the Word was already there; and the Word was with God; and the Word was God. This Word was in the beginning with God” --- John 1:1
There is the verdict that Jesus was a good man (verse 12).
That verdict is true, but it is not the whole truth. It was
Napoleon who made the famous remark: "I know men, and Jesus
Christ is more than a man." Jesus was indeed truly man; but in
him was the mind of God. There is the verdict that he was a prophet (verse 40). That
too is true. The prophet is the forth-teller of the will of God, the
man who has lived so close to God that he knows his mind and
purposes. That is true of Jesus; but there is this difference. The
prophet says: "Thus saith the Lord." His authority is borrowed
and delegated. His message is not his own. Jesus says: "I say

ANZAC DAY 25th APRIL 2011: “WE WILL REMEMBER THEM”
THE “DREADED” LEAGUE OF RIGHTS: A BLUSHING TULIP’S REPLY
by Peter Ewer
For a while the Greens were deep in thought, pondering, pondering. Did the party-party fail to win the seat of Marrickville because of the Israel boycott issue? Bobby Brown thinks from “feedback from the electorate” that the Israel boycott issue may have had an effect. But I find this hard to believe. How many voters in the seat of Marrickville could even correctly point to Israel’s location in an outline-map of the world? But boycotting Israel is now a popular cause among the hard Left, especially on University campuses.
Attacking Israel’s right to exist is a politically correct cause among this new crop of radicals. Anti-Israel posters can usually be found on university campuses. Further, although the Greens are distancing themselves from the boycott of Israel, the Senate Hansard of March 23, 2011 records that when Senator Mitch Fifield (Victoria) moved that, among other things, the boycott of Israel can be condemned, Senator Bob Brown asked that “the Australian Greens’ opposition to this motion be recorded.” The Greens then shifted their stated position when the present “boycott Israel” controversy erupted.
The media would be better off attacking these hard left radicals than pushing the long-refuted idea that the League is anti-Semitic or even anti-Israel. Those who respect race and nation, should have a “live and let live” attitude to all peoples.
ADAMS SPEWS FORTH HIS VITRIOL AGAINST ‘THE LION OF FREEDOM’
by Betty Luks
Adams commences: “Organised by the brainless bigots of shock-jockery, following the example of their American heroes in talking up the toxic Tea Party, a Canberra rally ostensibly about carbon tax was addressed by Tony Abbott and wisely boycotted by Hockey and Turnbull.
My comment: All the above is to keep Tony Abbott and the rest of the Coalition quiet on issues of great national importance. One can only hope and pray that more and more politicians will grow a spine and stand tall in front of their fellow Australians – and give the people genuine leadership.
Adams continues: “Climate change denial? There were deeper, darker purposes to the gathering. The crowd contained many members of deranged cults owing their existence to a truly evil man called Eric Butler. Shortly before his death in 2006, aged 90, Australia’s most virulent anti-Semite complained bitterly to the Press Council about some columns I’d written to expose him and his League of Rights. I’d wanted to remind the National Party, first infiltrated by the league in its Country Party days, of what these thugs were really on about – and to prevent such foolish Liberal ministers as Alexander Downer sharing public platforms with Butler’s acolytes. Not that Downer went as far as my old friend Jim Killen who, sadly, had backed the league in the 1960s, even travelling with Butler to Europe. Let me now warn Tony Abbott, and any shock-jock who can read.”
Our Answer to Slander: Eric documented all details that led up to the attacks upon him in the book “The Truth About the Australian League of Rights”, now out of print, but Jeremy Lee also answered all of Adams’ slanderous lies and the answers were recorded on “An Answer to Slander”. We have great pleasure in putting that presentation on our website for our fellow Australians to make up their own minds. For those who would like a full-definition copy of the DVD it is $12.00 posted.
As to the slander that Eric was a
traitor during WWII, we
have posted Eric’s official War Record details here on our website. Eric
never personally collected his Service medals, he was far too busy traipsing
the length and breadth of this land seeking to warn his fellow Australians
about the politicians’ sell-out of our sovereignty to the internationalists
and the utopian United Nations’ New World Order. Be that as it may, Bruce
Ruxton, at the time President of the Victorian Returned Services League,
presented Eric with his Service medals at the 1990 “New Times Dinner” in
NOW FOR PASTOR CHRIS FIELD’S DEALINGS WITH MACQUARIE BANK
by Betty Luks
FORGET ABOUT HYPE AND POLITICAL SPIN-DOCTORING – QUESTION IS:
Pastor Chris Field of the state of Victoria was evicted from his home for the second time, not for refusing to pay his mortgage, but daring to ask who actually held the legal mortgage document to his home. He wanted to know where his mortgage payments were going.
An Army of some 25 people invaded the home of Pastor Chris Field, evicted him and family leaving them out the front of the home with only the clothes they were wearing, but without shoes. The enforcers then erected a fence around the home to be policed by guard dogs. This show of strength by the Victorian Government on this passive family of God was larger than most sent to a hostage situation involving firearms.
If I have understood the situation correctly:
In 2008 American lawyer and author Ellen Brown alerted her readers to the fact that banks had on-sold the Mortgages without their clients knowledge, and had created such a tangle that original ownership was hard to prove.
"Let the Lawsuits Begin: Banks Brace for a Storm of Litigation": 13th, July 2008:
Olender wrote: "The sole goal of the freeze is to prevent owners of mortgage-backed securities, many of them foreigners, from suing U.S. banks and forcing them to buy back worthless mortgage securities at face value - right now almost 10 times their market worth. The ticking time bomb in the U.S. banking system is not resetting subprime mortgage rates. The real problem is the contractual ability of investors in mortgage bonds to require banks to buy back the loans at face value if there was fraud in the origination process.
What would be prudent and logical is for the banks that sold this toxic waste to buy it back and for a lot of people to go to prison. If they knew about the fraud, they should have to buy the bonds back."
Toxic subprime paper-writing - design of banks' 'financial products':
Among other design flaws is that securitized mortgage debt has become so complex that ownership of the underlying security has often been lost in the shuffle; and without a legal owner, there is no one with standing to foreclose. That was the procedural problem prompting Federal District Judge Christopher Boyko to rule in October 2007 that Deutsche Bank did not have standing to foreclose on 14 mortgage loans held in trust for a pool of mortgage-backed securities holders.
What Australian homeowners have not been told by their governments is that they are also caught up in the tangle. Pastor Field wants to bring the matter out into the light of day.
THE SCALE OF THE PROBLEM WITHIN AUSTRALIAN BANKS:
This is their exposure, not their turnover. It is unfortunate that the banks combined exposure has been increasing, even in the past year. To get this figure into perspective the total shareholder equity of the banks at the same date was a mere $129 Billion (or $0.129 Trillion). The total shareholder equity in our banks is less than 1% of the banks combined 'off balance sheet exposure. In Australia the banks may claim that they are hedging however the size of their derivative positions dwarfs their total assets ($2T table B2) so this argument doesn't hold water.
NOW FOR AN ANGLE WITH A ‘POPULIST’ TILT
“Iceland Declares Independence from International Banksters” by Bill Wilson of Netrightly, President of Americans for Limited Government. Read full article here: http://netrightdaily.com/2011/04/iceland-declares-independence-from-international-banks/. He writes: “ICELAND IS FREE! And it will remain so, so long as her people wish to remain autonomous of the foreign domination of her would-be masters — in this case, international bankers.
On April 9, the fiercely independent people of island-nation defeated a referendum that would have bailed out the UK and the Netherlands who had covered the deposits of British and Dutch investors who had lost funds in Icesave bank in 2008.
In response, the Icelandic people have told Europe to go pound sand:
Under the terms of the agreement, Iceland would have had to pay £2.35 billion to the UK, and €1.32 billion to the Netherlands by 2046 at a 3 percent interest rate. Its rejection for the second time by Iceland is a testament to its people, who feel they should bear no responsibility for the losses of foreigners endured in the financial crisis.
Continuing Bill Wilson’s article:
“This is just the latest in the long drama since 2008 of global institutions refusing to take losses in the financial crisis. Threats of a global economic depression and claims of being “too big to fail” have equated to a loaded gun to the heads of representative governments in the U.S. and Europe. Iceland is of particular interest because it did not bail out its banks like Ireland did, or foreign ones like the U.S. did.
If that fervour catches on amongst taxpayers worldwide, as it has in Iceland and with the tea party movement in America, the banks would have something to fear; that is, the inability to draw from limitless amounts of funding from gullible government officials and central banks.
However, the alternative is for representative governments to sacrifice their independence to a cadre of faceless bankers who share no allegiance to any nation. It is the conflict that has already defined the beginning of the 21st Century. The question is whether free peoples will choose to remain free, as Iceland has, or to submit.
A GREENS PIPPED AN INDEPENDENT AT THE POST
We kept in mind Greens candidate Jeremy Buckingham’s response to Julia Gillard’s criticisms of the Greens: “As a country tradesman in western NSW (who loves and works hard for his family, Julia) I probably would have been a Labor supporter and voter in an earlier time, but the values that I hold dear are not reflected in the old parties anymore. Sticking your dig on a tough issue, standing up for communities in the face of vested interests, a fair go - true Australian values - have been abandoned by the spin doctors and manipulators who rule Labor. At every election more and more Australians are recognising this and are abandoning the old parties to elect Greens to federal, state and local government…” - - https://www.abc.net.au/unleashed/55402.html
Jeremy Buckingham ‘just pipped’ Pauline Hanson for that final spot in the NSW Legislative Council. It will now be the task of the people of NSW to keep Jeremy to his word and that may not necessarily be what his party has in mind!
BOLT, EUGENICS AND RACIAL VILIFICATION
by Ian Wilson LL.B.
Where does one start in deconstructing all of this? First, a question about the relevance of physical racial characteristics to the nature of Aboriginal identity does not constitute a eugenic claim. Eugenics is about improvement of the race and merely identifying racial characteristics does not constitute eugenics. Second, eugenics as practiced in Singapore and the US did not lead to the Holocaust.
Mr Merkel is quoted as saying that the case is not about free speech as there was a free speech provision in the Racial Discrimination Act, but a “challenge to what he’s written”.
THE FAILURE OF DEMOCRACY
by Brian Simpson
The key reason for this, as the Alternative Right article observes, is “that genuine democracy can only exist in a community with shared values and common historical ties”. Also important to the decentralisation philosophy of the League and social credit is that “the larger the political unit, the stronger the type of government needed to hold it together. The liberal democracies of the West, governing over vast multicultural multitudes are necessarily repressive and tend increasingly towards totalitarianism”. Further, de Benoist rejects equalitarianism, the dogma of our multicultural fascist societies, that all people are naturally equal.

MORE ON THE JOYS OF RADIOACTIVITY
by Brian Simpson
The corporates say that there is nothing to worry about: translation, get very nervous as radioactivity will spread around the Earth. Stock up on natural sources of iodine such as kelp. This won’t be the last nuclear “accident”.
