THE STORY OF THE AUSTRALIAN PEOPLE’S BANK

In October of year 2017, the centenary of the completion of this wide brown land’s East-West railway will be celebrated.  There is quite a story to be told in relation to the East-West railway - stretching from the east coast to the west coast of Australia – and how it was built without debt to the people.In the Preface to the ninth edition of “The Story of the Commonwealth Bank” July 1940 D. J. Amos, F.A.I.S. took us back into the historical background all Australians need to know. Preface to the Ninth Edition"The Story of the Commonwealth Bank" was originally delivered as a lecture before the Sturt Electoral Committee, Adelaide, and was first printed in pamphlet form in 1931. It exhibited the usual defect of all lectures, namely, condensation of the subject matter to an extreme degree.The great and unexpected demand which arose for the pamphlet found me so closely occupied in other work that the second and third editions had to be printed practically unaltered, and I began to be more and more sensible of the need for amplifications and additions. These were accordingly made in the fourth (revised) edition, after which only minor additions, for the sake of clearness, were inserted in subsequent editions until the eighth was called for. It was then found necessary to continue the story up to Australia's entry into the second world war (1939), and also to include in it a short account of the note issue.  In the present (ninth) edition it has been deemed advisable to mention very briefly some important paragraphs in the Report of the Royal Commission on the Australian Monetary and Banking System (appointed in 1935), as this most important report is now either out of print or has been withdrawn from circulation.It only remains for me to thank the general public for the cordial reception they gave to all "The Commonwealth Stories," and which encouraged me to persevere and complete the series.ADELAIDE, July, 1940.D. J. AMOS, F.A.I.S.

More on this matter will be brought to the light as we approach the centenary in October. Read D.J. Amos’ work here….

Hanson tackles Section 18c Racial Discrimination Act in the senate - Hansard November 24, 2016

Pauline Hanson addresses the racial Discrimination ActSenator HANSON (Queensland) (10:48): I have listened to some comments in this chamber today and all I hear about is racism. Let me make my point very clear. When I first came into parliament I stood on the ground of equality for all Australians—equality regardless of race, colour or creed. Also, what I have tried to make quite clear is that, yes, Aboriginal and Torres Strait Island people were the first peoples of this land here. Yes, Australia was colonised and people came here. Since then, many migrants from around the world have sought to make Australia their home. They have come here to join us and to be one of us, and I welcome that. My first husband was actually Polish. He was a migrant after the Second World War who came to Australia for a new life with his mother.

I have had involvement with people of all different cultural backgrounds. The manager of my shop—my fish and chip shop—was also a refugee from Laos. I had the highest regard for her and we worked very well together. I had properties that I actually rented out to an Aboriginal lady and her child. My children grew up in the same street with Aboriginal children. My association will all different cultures has been one that I have cherished. My parents were people that welcomed anyone into their homes, and that is how I was taught. I have respect for so many different cultures and the people. Respect is earned by the person, not purely based on who they are or their race. It must be earned.

LET’S NOT MAKE IT EASIER FOR THE POLITICIANS by Betty Luks

I see that barrister Louise Clegg in her address to the Institute of Public Affairs has suggested that what is needed for ruling parties to ease the gridlock of an uncontrolled Senate, is to have longer parliamentary terms and joint sittings of both Houses to ‘ease the passage of Bills through the Parliaments’.  Her paper appeared on David Pascoe’s Facebook page.

She thought that “If the two major parties had the slightest inclination to put the national interest above their own, they would embark on bipartisan efforts for sensible constitutional change, such as lengthening parliamentary terms and the mooted constitutional amendment to enable joint sittings to address parliamentary gridlock.  These would provide much-needed structural circuit breakers and help governments to govern…”

The Queen. 65 Years on the Throne!

Today, the 6th February 2017, marks the 65th anniversary of the Queen’s accession to the Throne.

For Her Majesty this is also the anniversary of her father’s passing and she has indicated she will spend the day in quiet contemplation.   Yet, it appears that there will be no formal acknowledgement by Australian Federal and State governments nor, more importantly, does it seem that there will be any church services commemorating the first time in our shared history that a monarch has served her people for so long.   Called the “Blue-Sapphire Jubilee” it is unlikely that we will see another such anniversary for at least a hundred years and probably far longer.   The Australian Monarchist League has written on this matter to the Prime Minister and other dignitaries but without response.     Philip Benwell National Chair Australian Monarchist League

NSW council amalgamations by Bob Ryan

Source:  http://www.onlineopinion.com.au/view.asp?article=18808It was interesting that on the day following President Trump telling the people of the USA that they, the people, were taking back control, a mass turnout in Washington claimed they were taking back control. Yet President Trump and those in the mass turnout are on opposing sides. Because each side wants to improve the lot of their fellow Americans it would seem although the goal is common to both the means of achieving it differ. President Trump wants to do it his way and the protesters prefer the Democrats' way.

At the same time, in a very scaled-down version of a similar protest, representatives of the people in New South Wales demonstrated in favour of taking back control; in this instance, control of their local government areas. Here again, we have opposing sides seeking the same goal: i.e. better local government but, here again, the means of achieving it differ. The NSW government wants to do it one way and the protesters, another.

YES! The Australian people must play their part in this Constitutional Monarchy!

It is not just 'freedom' alone that we want.  Freedom must be balanced by responsibility and accountability - not only on the part of the elected representative, but also by the Australian people themselves.   The Senator (Rod Culleton) has worked hard for this.  It is now up to the Australian people to put pressure on their own political representative and get behind Rod Culleton's fight on their behalf.Listen to Rod's video explanation:https://www.facebook.com/RodCulletonOneNation/Well the BIG NEWS this morning is that George Christensen is ready to cross the floor over banks’ commission of inquiry.  WE ARE SO CLOSE!  This is a result from people power and the Australian people telling their politians what they WANT.  But we need more  pressure - take a listen and share this message: https://www.facebook.com/hashtag/royalcommission?source=feed_text&story_id=557848524424708https://www.facebook.com/hashtag/auspol?source=feed_text&story_id=557848524424708https://www.facebook.com/hashtag/canberra?source=feed_text&story_id=557848524424708https://www.facebook.com/hashtag/peoplepower?source=feed_text&story_id=557848524424708https://www.facebook.com/hashtag/georgechistensen?source=feed_text&story_id=557848524424708

A MESSAGE FROM AN AMERICAN PATRIOT TO HIS OWN PEOPLE

To: Americans everywhere;Thank you for your time and attention.First, please let me be very clear, what I have written here for your consideration is not about the Republican Party, Democrat Party, Independent Party, Libertarian Party, Tea Party or any other Party. It is about an idea conceived over two centuries ago, a country, a people, a document.

Two hundred and twenty nine years ago (1787) a group of men whom we now refer to as the "founding fathers," following a long and bloody battle for their independence from a dictatorial Monarchy, assembled themselves together in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania and did their best to establish a country governed in a God-fearing way by representatives who were selected by the people who were to be governed. No where in the history of all mankind were there any examples or even political theory in existence that offered them any hope that a republican form of government, based on the new concept of consent of the governed, could succeed on a wilderness continent which was much larger than any European state.

THE TRIUMPH OF DONALD TRUMP AND AMERICA’S FUTURE by Betty Luks

One of the first signs to look for will be the names and backgrounds of the folks Donald Trump, will appoint in his new administration. Especially his Chief of Staff and Secretary of State. I see that the President-elect of the United States of America is showing signs of “looking to old Wall Street hands” to fill some of the jobs that will be in his power to offer.So, when President Trump has put America back on the road to prosperity, what will he do with the production surplus that his own people cannot purchase through lack of purchasing power, and to which countries will he export the surpluses in this age of the Robotic Revolution – far surpassing the productivity, along with the globalization and ‘unemployment’, of the 20th century? 

Here is one example:  American ‘Greg’ emailed the following to Canadian Wallace Klinck:“Wally, there was a recent radio segment about Youngstown, [Ohio, USA], Steel country where mills long ago shut down.  When a French steelmaker moved in to set up a new mill, [there was] initial rejoicing, but it needed to hire only 400 workers to do production formerly requiring 20-thousand workers.  The factories come back but not the jobs.”

LEGALITY WITHOUT EQUITY – AN INGENEOUS FORM OF WARFARE by Betty Luks

“Legality without equity is clearly identifiable as an ingenious form of warfare in which moral violence is cunningly substituted for physical violence without incurring any risk of retribution under common law.”  - -  Ivor Benson in “The Zionist Factor” Helen Bender, daughter of the late George Bender presented a challenging and heart-rending paper at the recent ALoR’s Annual Seminar.  Helen spoke of the struggles and heartache her father experienced over a ten-year period with the Coal Seam Gas industry before finally taking his own life.Her Facebook page reads:  In memory of the late George Bender who struggled for 10yrs against the CSG Industry and paid the ultimate sacrifice.  Her Facebook page can be found here… https://www.facebook.com/GeorgeBender68/ While the struggles of George Bender seem to bear no relation to William Shakespeare’s plays, bear with me and think on these things.  In Shakespeare’s play "The Merchant of Venice", Shylock demanded ‘his pound of flesh’ from a living man, whereas in George Bender’s case, because of Queensland’s laws, the man George Bender took his own life - his whole life. 

Think on these things:Ivor Benson notes in “The Zionist Factor,” the legal structure of Shakespeare’s play “The Merchant of Venice” is “fallacious since no system of law would permit a man to put his own life in jeopardy as one of the conditions of a contract.  The legal framework of the drama is no more real than so much stage furniture and painted scenery.  What is profoundly real is Shakespeare’s most elaborate statement of the relation of positive law to equity in the dealings of man and man….   It is the relation of common law to equity which, more than any other aspect of law, comes into question in the quarrel between the money-lender and the merchant of Venice…”Surely the same could be said in the quarrel between George Bender and the CSG Industry? "It is the relation of common law to equity more than any other aspect of law…"

Marriage - the Bigger Picture

MALCOLM TURNBULL LIED TO GROUP OF CHRISTIANS CONCERNING PLEBISCITE?It is not just practising Christians who should be vitally interested in the proposed national plebiscite on ‘same-sex ‘marriage’.  As the outcome of such a move would eventually affect the very foundation of this nation, Australians one and all should be concerned.

I see Andrew Bolt is more concerned, along with many another journalist, about the spat between the group of Christians and Turnbull than the proposed plebiscite:“Turnbull vs Christians: which do you think is lying?”http://www.heraldsun.com.au/blogs/andrew-bolt/turnbull-vs-christians-which-do-you-think-is-lying/news-story/SPP-1361680But I don’t want to go into ‘who said what and when’, I am more interested in how the issue will eventually be played out for the Australian people to understand the real issues.

LET’S RECAP SOME IMPORTANT HISTORY AND AUSTRALIA'S SELL-OUT BY POLITICIANS

WORLD REVOLUTIONOn Target, 6 February 1981. "The French Revolution did not arise merely out of conditions or ideas peculiar to the eighteenth century, nor the Bolshevist Revolution out of political and social conditions in Russia, or the teaching of Karl Marx. Both these explosions were produced by forces which, making use of popular suffering and discontent, had long been gathering strength for an onslaught, not only on Christianity, but on all social and moral order.

"It is of immense significance to notice with what resentment this point of view is met in certain quarters. When I first began to write on revolution, a well-known London publisher said to me, 'Remember that if you take an anti-revolutionary line, you will have the whole literary world against you.’Mrs. Nesta Webster, in the Preface to her "Secret Societies and Subversive Movements" (1924)

CONTINUATION OF: Commonwealth Constitution Act: The Historical and Political Origins of the Current Preamble

The Baconian Phrase:  A Just Relationship between the Mind and Things In a discussion paper read to the Science and Religion Forum 9 April, 1976 biologist and academic Geoffrey Dobbs noted that Science shares a dimension with Religion beyond the cerebro-verbal plane of academic philosophy, and that is: “namely that of the external world, in that its thoughts and symbols must be ‘bound back’, in detail, to an external, non-cerebral, non-verbal, reality.”  Dobbs insisted:

It is of the essence of the scientific method that theory must constantly be checked by observation and experiment. It is of the essence of religion that the professed faith must be put to the test of practice, both on the individual scale, and on the more visible, general, social scale. It is of the essence of words and of symbols of all sorts, that their connection with the referent is indirect – entirely through the human mind, and hence easily confused or diverted or even inverted.

Commonwealth Constitution Act: The Historical and Political Origins of the Current Preamble

It is written, one of the few human freedoms “guaranteed in the Australian Constitution - the free exercise of religion (s.116) - owes its existence in part to the insertion of the phrase 'humbly relying on the blessing of Almighty God' in the Preamble…”Source: setis.library.usyd.edu.au/ozlit/pdf/fed0014.pdf

Which was “added at the Federation Convention in Melbourne in 1898, s.116 largely at the behest of the Victorian, Henry Bournes Higgins, while the inclusion of God's blessing in the Preamble was due to the efforts of the South Australian, Patrick McMahon Glynn… Glynn's public justification for reference to the Almighty in the Preamble referred to the 'great central fact of faith' and the 'spirit of reverence for the unseen' which pervaded civil life in Australia.”(4)…

POLITICAL CORRECTNESS: THE DEMISE OF DEBATE

Source: On Line Opinion,  19 August 2016Louis O'Neill, who is studying writing at Macquarie University defended his right to freedom of speech:

“Frequently I find myself holding what one might consider a politically incorrect opinion, such as having scorn for Islam, disagreeing with myths peddled by the third wave feminist movement or finding no legitimacy in the claims of the black lives matter movement. As a result my adversaries are more than ready to deviate from the laws of discourse, veering off into ad hominem, red herring or appeal to emotion fallacies. The legitimacy of my political viewpoint is often times devalued, as I occupy the “privileged” end of the spectrum, being a heterosexual white male, and so I'm told that I mustn't speak on issues which aren't specifically related to my own demographic. Sometimes the sanctimony of my ideological combatants is so abundant that they feel they need not even engage further in conversation once I've pushed their buttons enough. Well to them I say, if your idea cannot withstand the corrosive qualities of informed conversation, then your idea is not one worth having. We must herald logic as the great sieve through which we may push idiocy and illogicality, and allow the juices of truth to percolate from it…” Read further here … http://www.onlineopinion.com.au/view.asp?article=18460
