CONSIDER THE LILIES OF THE FIELD


     One of my granddaughters came to say ‘hello’ recently and shared that she had been looking at the passage in Matthew 6 where Jesus tells his listeners to ‘consider the lilies of the field’.  She knows it is a favourite passage of mine, but she wasn’t sure that she had the same idea, the same concept, as I had in my ‘mind’s eye’.  The conversation caused me to think of ways that could help her to envisage God ‘clothing’ the lilies of the field.

     I had to ‘consider’ very carefully just how to present a picture in her ‘mind’s eye’ of God ‘clothing’ the lilies.  After all, it is a privilege to have such a discussion with one of my grandchildren. I couldn’t let such an opportunity pass me by.

Human Rights OR Common Law Rights by Wallace Klinck

...in response to a recent prosecution in the British Columbia (Canada) Human Rights Tribunal     The Human Rights tribunals were set up to circumvent Citizens Rights protected historically under our Constitution as it derived from the British “unwritten” Constitution—and to deny citizens protection under the Common Law as this evolved in a Christian milieu.  The creators and administrators of these bodies profess to hold jurisdiction to prosecute for an alleged crime of “discrimination” which is little more than contrived Pharisaic sophistry.  Human “Rights” Tribunals are a travesty of law and justice as these developed under Christian influence over many centuries going back to the Magna Carta and I understand even to earlier times.

     The ability to exercise discrimination is the essential innate natural right of the conscious human person and failure to discriminate would create mindless chaos leading to an inability to function or survive for any length of time.  Human Rights Tribunals were not established because of proper reference to our historic past legal traditions and they were not formed consequent to any significant public demand.  They are creatures conceived by powerful subversive minority forces.  They are reminiscent of Bolshevik “Peoples Courts” where arbitrary and politically motivated “offences” were created as weapons to terrorize individuals and suppress freedom of individual thought and action as potential or emergent opposition to the illegitimate centralization and exercise of power.  They are in reality not adversaries of discrimination—but demand discrimination in accord with their own dicta. They are instruments of revolutionary policy designed to deprive citizens of property and freedom and can only contribute to installation of the Supreme State.

Letter to The Australian

  The problems for the federal Coalition are not insurmountable.  It just requires Malcolm Turnbull to resign gracefully without necessitating any kind of coup. As another Malcolm in Shakespeare’s Macbeth said: ‘Nothing in his life became him so much as his leaving of it.”  There is heaps of latent talent in the Coalition ranks.  A leader and deputy leader will emerge.  Babette Francis, Toorak, Vic

 Wallace Klinck commented on Babette Francis’ Letter to the Editor in The Australian     Well, I hope that Babette is correct but unless they have a realistic understanding of the financial issue they are automatically doomed to failure—for no good reason whatsoever other than ignorance.  The latent talent may indeed be present but latent talent is of no avail when it is not correctly and effectively activated and deployed.  Babette knows how to get attention by keeping her messages short—but ultimately they must also be effectively targeted.  A PDF is attached for your reference.  The document is relatively short but highly concentrated and deals not only with finance and economics but also especially with how these relate to successful human association.  https://alor.org/Library/Douglas%20CH%20-%20Economic%20DemocracyPAGESEDITED.pdf

Bank Royal Commission ‘Rank Socialism’: Howard

     FORMER prime minister John Howard has slammed a royal commission into the banks, describing it as “rank socialism”.In an interview due to screen in full on David Speers’ Sky News program this evening, Mr Howard warned the Coalition against the move, The Australian reports.  http://www.theaustralian.com.au/national-affairs/scott-morrison-defends-meeting-with-bank-chiefs/news-story/b7d883a8c0648a89cc1edc6975a5ec9b He said embracing such a policy would damage the Turnbull government’s fortunes.

 “Our banks demonstrated in 2009 that they were among the best-run, the most prudentially supervised, and the most well-capitalised in the world,” Mr Howard said. “I say to my former colleagues and the people I still support, don’t embrace a royal commission, and to those in the National Party and elsewhere who might see this as some kind of retaliation for co-operation between people on the same-sex marriage issue, I would say that I agreed with those people in the National Party on the substance of the same-sex marriage issue, but that is over.Read further: http://www.news.com.au/national/politics/bank-royal-commission-rank-socialism-howard/news-story/fb2e65449dc582adb1697179546e0bb

WHAT DO YOU MEAN BY ‘THE RULE OF LAW’? WHOSE LAW? WHICH LAW?

It would be worth while in looking at what is happening in Canada and the move for COMPELLED SPEECHFrom Jordan B. Peterson: 

Recently, the Law Society of Upper Canada (Ontario) has made major revisions to their requirements for the annual submission for legal practitioners in that province. As part of a five-part strategic program known as “Accelerating Culture Shift,” all lawyers are now required to write, submit and abide by a “Statement of Principles.” The details can be viewed here https://www.lsuc.on.ca/EDI/ -- a site which indicates what lawyers now need to “KNOW AND DO” (caps in the original) for 2017.

America (read Australia) A Captured Nation

     Whilst the following is aimed at America, it applies equally well in Australia.  Our politicians have succumbed to the temptations of evil Power and are dragging us along with them!

     Whose fault is that? It is the voting public of Australia! We must be accountable for how we vote and this means taking responsibility for the results and not blaming politicians or political parties.

Internet Censorship

Wallace Klinck writes:

     Not surprised—especially after watching the U.S. hearings earlier today.  They are challenged to effect censorship without revealing it to the general public and I am sure will use any subterfuge which they think they can get away with.  I am much afraid that the Internet is in process of being “scrubbed”.  A criminal tragedy.     Read further here: https://jamesperloff.com/2017/10/27/the-war-on-truth-is-a-lonely-warrior/

Letter-to-the-Editor - Part Time Power

Solar power only works while the sun shines – it is part-time power.Wind power only works when suitable winds blows – also part-time power.Batteries only work when charged – part-time power again.Hydro fails in droughts – more part-time power.And using full-time power like gas to fill the inevitable supply gaps from part-time power forces backup gas to operate like part-time power.Moreover, on sunny windy days, wind and solar generators spew out electricity at little extra cost. These erratic surges of part-time power drive electricity prices so low that even low-cost full-time producers like coal cannot operate profitably at those times. They are throttled back and forced to operate as yet another part-time power plant.

     24/7 electricity users such as hospitals, trains, factories, refineries, fuel and water pumps, cash registers, infrastructure and mines cannot operate on part-time electricity.

     Moreover, every part-time power producer (using sun, wind, batteries, hydro, gas or coal) consumes money full-time for operations, standby, maintenance and replacement. Each also has to fund its own specialised generators, transmission lines, access roads and workforce. Electricity becomes both unreliable and expensive, and consumers suffer.

China’s Pivot to World Markets, Washington’s Pivot to World Wars… And the Debacle of the Latin American Left By Prof. James Petras, Global Research, October 15, 2017

     China and the United States are moving in polar opposite directions: Beijing is rapidly becoming the center of overseas investments in high tech industries, including robotics, nuclear energy and advanced machinery with collaboration from centers of technological excellence, like Germany.

     In contrast, Washington is pursuing a predatory military pivot to the least productive regions with collaboration from its most barbaric allies, like Saudi Arabia.

WELL DONE AND WELL SAID TIM BALL!

Collapse of Global Warming Deception Triggers Variety of Bailouts and RevisionismWatts Up With That?Guest Blogger /  October 15, 2017Guest opinion: Dr. Tim Ball

     We will see an increasing number of people changing their positions on global warming as the global warming ship sinks. It will take various forms including; articles appearing that subtly shift previously held positions; reevaluation of data; or finding new evidence that allows a change and perhaps worst of all those who say they knew the science was wrong all along but did not consider it important to speak out; dredging up a sentence or two from their writings that they claim showed they knew.  The level of inventiveness will astonish as rats desert the sinking ship.

Same-sex ‘marriage’ is causing a schism among Catholics in Australia

     Many Australians, including Bishops, do not appear to be aware that while Christians are being bullied and punished now for opposing SSM, it will be immeasurably worse if this legislation is passed. This is our last opportunity to save our freedom of religion! The heterosexual nature of marriage is not only a religious concept, but has been accepted for millennia in all cultures, secular and religious alike. It is simply a matter of biology and human reason.

     Many homosexuals oppose the “gay lobby” and support the rights of children to know and be loved by their own natural parents: https://www.lifesitenews.com/news/homosexual-activists-aim-to-destroy-the-family-impose-totalitarianism-gay-p     The silence and timid platitudes apparent in the Church is a matter of grave concern for Australian Catholics, and Christians generally.

A CANDIDATE FOR THE AMERICAN SENATE MAKES APPEAL FOR HELP

Wallace,      Times were tough when I was a kid. I was in elementary school when my dad lost his job. Then my parents got divorced. My mom struggled to take care of us kids on her own. For three years, we lived in an abandoned gas station without running water or electricity. Sometimes we didn’t have enough food to eat, but we got by thanks to help from family, church, and even the government.

     Those were tough times, but I knew it could be different. I never thought being homeless was going to stop me from being who I wanted to be. My parents taught me that if you work really hard, you can make it. I worked really hard, but I still needed a little help. When I went off to college, I knew I wanted to help other people get their shot at the American dream, because that dream came true for me.

CANADA: REGIONAL and/or NATIONAL INSURRECTION Wallace M. Klinck

Dear Prof. Tombe,     Please note that the following post was made today to the Montreal Gazette:Why the time is ripe for a conservative Alberta premier to shake up Confederationhttp://montrealgazette.com/news/politics/why-the-time-is-ripe-for-a-conservative-alberta-premier-to-shake-up-confederation/wcm/1e1d34ec-c614-4451-8eca-ea4b351ab919

     “Equalization payments are a mechanism whereby the increasingly inadequate national financial income is shared sufficiently to provide the financial powers adequate assurance that they will not become the target of regional and/or national insurrection. Social welfare financed by taxation falls into this category. It removes pressure from an essentially corrupt, exploitative and dysfunctional financial system by ensuring that the relatively few crumbs which are allowed society are sufficiently spread to prevent outright rampant deprivation and starvation with ensuing open rebellion. State encouraged ‘charity’ (voluntary ‘taxation’) serves a similar function.
