Peter Davis - Wallace Klinck - Ken Grundy - Arnis Luks discussing this issue @ thecross-roads.org - 2nd February 2018
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
The following is portion of a newsletter issued by the Rhodesia Christian Group, and sent to us by the Rev. Father Arthur Lewis:
“At the end of last year I returned briefly to my old mission-district in the Honde Valley, now perhaps the most war-torn area of Rhodesia. We travelled in mine-proof vehicles. In the driving rain near the Mozambique border I saw the dead and mutilated bodies of twenty-seven defenceless tea-estate workers, ripped by bullets and slashed by bayonets. This appalling atrocity was perpetrated by terrorist raiders in the presence of the victims’ wives and children, with whom I was able to speak and pray.
Your site provides a considerable amount of historical information on the “money question” but concentrates wrongly on the question of interest charges made by the credit creation of private bankers with the usual misguided recommendation that “private money creation” should be vested in the hands of sovereign governments. The fatal flaw in this recommendation is that it would place the power of money, or credit, creation as a centralized power resident in the hands of the State. This proviso is one of the main points of the Communist Manifesto and state control of credit was exercised also by the fascist States. Credit is the means of activating real productive resources and State control of its issue and cancellation confers centralized control over the entire real credit, i.e., productive capacity, of a nation. This control combined with a mis-conceived policy of “full-employment”, which you clearly have endorsed, is a certain recipe for tyranny.
Adani: DFAT facing questions over possible secret requests for foreign cash to fund controversial mine Exclusive by the National Reporting Team’s Alexandra Blucher and Mark Willacy
Key federal crossbenchers will today grill senior government bureaucrats about possible secret approaches to foreign agencies for financial support for Adani’s controversial Carmichael coal mine. Key points:
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.
National Post (2017-10-13) Canada Calgary Mayor Naheed Nenshi came to power as a reformer, but has done very little achieving, writes Jen Gerson:
Lauded abroad and beloved across the country, Calgary’s mayor Naheed Nenshi is facing the unthinkable: he may be about to lose an election. At first Calgary’s Oct. 16 municipal election promised to be a predictable affair, with the guy once proclaimed Canada’s most popular mayor facing off against an unpromising slate of low-profile challengers. Yet several Mainstreet Research poll have shown mayoral contender Bill Smith with a double-digit lead. And while some have questioned the polls’ methodology, there is evidence to suggest that this race is far tighter than anyone anticipated, least of all Nenshi.
Harvey Weinstein and Hollywood’s shadowy culture are not the only matters being exposed!Hidden camera: YouTube director censors Alex Jones, conservatives from news feeds…. Martin Barillas of Spero News, 11 October 2017
Project Veritas released a covert video featuring Nick Dudich, who works for The New York Times as Audience Strategy Editor. Using his power as a “gatekeeper” to influence news, Dudich boasted on camera, “I can choose what goes out and what doesn’t go out.” The video is titled American Pravda: Part II.
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.
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.
Universal basic income may counter automationPublished: 3:23 pm, Sunday, 24 September 2017http://www.skynews.com.au/tech/2017/09/24/universal-basic-income-may-counter-automation.html Losing your job to a robot might not necessarily be all doom and gloom if governments revolutionise the way we can earn a crust.That’s the hope of social policy academic Professor Greg Marston, who wants Australia to join other nations in debating the merits of introducing a universal basic income to help with an expected surge in unemployment that the rise of robots may bring.
The University of Queensland academic and other proponents of the UBI, including Facebook founder Mark Zuckerberg and Tesla’s Elon Musk, argue governments need policies that provide an economic floor for people who lose their jobs or are forced to work fewer hours as a result of greater automation.Governments would pay all adults a basic salary of about $20,000 to cover their basic bills, but there would be no requirement to work.
So heroic Iceland in dealing a blow to the “Bankers” appears not to be so noble after all!
It’s as if someone were out there making up pointless jobs just for the sake of keeping us all working.
In the year 1930, John Maynard Keynes predicted that technology would have advanced sufficiently by century’s end that countries like Great Britain or the United States would achieve a 15-hour work week. There’s every reason to believe he was right. In technological terms, we are quite capable of this. And yet it didn’t happen. Instead, technology has been marshaled, if anything, to figure out ways to make us all work more. In order to achieve this, jobs have had to be created that are, effectively, pointless.
While the “national debt” has been the concern du jour of many economists, commentators and politicians, little attention is ever paid to the historical significance of debt.
For thousands of years, the struggle between rich and poor has largely taken the form of conflicts between creditors and debtors—of arguments about the rights and wrongs of interest payments, debt peonage, amnesty, repossession, restitution, the sequestering of sheep, the seizing of vineyards, and the selling of debtors’ children into slavery.
Society and Credit: “The credit of a society belongs to the individual members of that society, and Governments should have to come to individuals for required credits in the same way that a company is dependent upon shareholders for its share capital.

A study by the Swiss Federal Institute of Technology in Zurich has found that a mere 147 corporations control the world – orchestrating events and controlling governments.
It certainly looks like the Marxists believe their ‘revolution’ has come about in America as in other western countries. Social Credit seeks a Resolution of conflict not a Revolution and republishes a letter which appeared in a Social Crediter edition of 1942 . It is taken from Quadragesimo Anno, the great encyclical on the Reconstruction of the Social Order issued by the late Pope Pius XI.
The letter reads: Sir,
Someone has posted this simple animated brief video to Youtube a short time ago. It seems to be quite sound and provides full text as well as audio--and obviously has been “borrowed” by a well-intended person.
To which Wallace Klinck Responded: Monique Teal (Daily Kos) Our “economic viability” is primarily determined, and sabotaged, by a dysfunctional, exploitative and costive financial system which is increasingly non-distributive, except by means of exponentially increasing financial debt, and which stops up the potential abundance of nations. If you prefer to ignore this final and definitive cause of our problems of poverty, crime, war, etc., and instead choose to encourage women to destroy the life within them without humanity, emotion or moral concern, you are hopelessly confused, and culpable if actually aware of the destructive and degrading nature of your actions, which seem to assume that women, along with the rest of humanity, are primarily and inevitably mere economic functionaries serving the powers of Mammon, as embodied in the banking and financial fraternity. You are basing your policies upon fear and avarice rather than upon faith, love and compassion. We live in a world of actual abundance and financial scarcity, and are deceived by the latter to believe in a material scarcity which does not exist except for the inhibiting influence of its false symbolic accountancy representation and determinant, which we call money. An increasing portion of the world’s human “work” is done not for any genuinely or justifiable productive purpose but rather merely to receive financial incomes enabling us to obtain not current but past production. This is called “salvation through works”—and the “works” (defined as expended human energy) become evermore irrelevant, wasteful, idolatrous, enslaving and threatening as technology replaces human energy as a factor of production. The crime is not the marvellous displacement of labour by technology but in our inability, or mindless and stubborn unwillingness, to provide a means for dispersion of the spectacular abundance which technology makes possible. A nation or society which has no Cultural Inheritance, or refuses to recognize, acknowledge and confer it, is doomed for consignment to the scrapheap of history.Major C.H.

Australian League of Rights (SA Branch)
No political movement can exist in a moral vacuum, and Australians have traditionally accepted that it is the Christian Faith that generated our heritage of representative government. While the League maintains a small full-time staff primarily motivated by Christian service, it is the extensive network of volunteers from all walks of life who form the backbone of the Movement.
The League of Rights seeks to help create a body of dedicated men and women who serve not for their own material gain, but as custodians of those truths and values which must form the basis of all successful efforts to defeat the enemies of human dignity and freedom.
The League encourages and equips individuals to independently exercise their own initiative in the service of freedom.
