The Future of Australia Day (and a Short History of Oz Rock)
The Australia Day Memory.
I have one memory of Australia day from childhood, I assume it is an amalgam of several different Australia days from the early 1980s.
The day is scorching. I am at a gathering with my extended family. It is the middle of the day, people are drinking beer and meat is being cooked on a barbecue. Cricket is on the television and people are clustered around it watching Australia who are losing badly and someone comments “At least you’d think they could win on bloody Australia Day” and it is all downhill from there.
The fact that we were celebrating the beginning of the colony and therefore the beginning of the land genocide of the indigenous population never occurred to us for a moment. The reason for this was ignorance and complacency.
Sadly many Australians still live in that world of ignorance and complacency but far fewer than at that time as attested by the large demonstrations yesterday against the national holiday being on the date of the beginning of the colony.
The date of the national holiday has little practical importance but it becomes insulting when people become indignant and upset when indigenous Australians refer to the date as “Invasion Day” missing the fact that the choice of this date makes it impossible for indigenous Australians to view it as a day for celebration.
The British, it should be remembered, classified Australia as terra nullius (nobody’s land) pretending the indigenous people did not exist, thus saving themselves the trouble and expense of negotiating with them and enabling the wholesale theft of the continent at almost no cost.A musket here, a blanket there.
It is sadly typical act of arrogance to expect indigenous Australians to celebrate the anniversary of the beginning of the land genocide that began in 1788.
The intent of the entire national day project (unity and celebration) is thus defeated, and will always be defeated while the date is January 26th. In some major cities more people are protesting the date than celebrating it already.
“The crowd at Federation Square – estimated by some to be up to 50,000 people – is believed to have eclipsed the number of people who attended the earlier Australia Day march along Swanston Street.” (Source)
Given that the nation was born on the New Year and the nation has tried to have a more constructive and inclusive relationship with the indigenous population who were simply treated as non-entities by the British, New Years Day would be a better choice for the national day of celebration .
People Should Simply Ignore the Government and Start Celebrating Australia Day on New Years Day or another.
The Government has the ability to make January 26th a public holiday and stage their tiresome and corny ceremonies but they do not have the power to make anyone participate in or pay attention to any of it. Nor do they have the ability to prevent anyone celebrating Australia Day on a different date.
It seems like a good idea to me to begin to stage Australia Day on another date and this will provide a positive outlet to celebrate Australia that would provide a nice compliment to the entirely negative (with good reason) Invasion Day movement.
The logical choice, with the built-in advantage that it is already a public holiday and the day the nation actually came into being would be New Years Day.
Warumpi Band, Black Fella White Fella
Growing up most of the big Australian heroes were sports players. We were told that the batting of Don Bradman and the winning runs of Phar Lap, the champion racehorse of the day, “kept people going” during the depression of the early 1930’s. The whole line is infantile nonsense in retrospect but that has been the standard in Australia.
Recently a video was posted on the internet showing Ukrainians in Kiev staging a march celebrating the life of the Nazi collaborator Stepan Bandera. I cruelly commented “Who or what else do they have to celebrate?”Yet if we cast aside our sporting heroes, whose achievements are made in an entirely insignificant field, the same question could easily be asked of Australia.
“Who or what do we have to celebrate?”
There are many practical things of course,there is so much we take for granted having never known any different. In terms of culture it becomes more difficult.
Between the mid 1970s and late 1980s Australian music, pop music seemed to go through a real heyday with a lot of great music being created in a short time and although several of the bands that were part of that broad wave, such as Midnight Oil, INXS, the Divinyls and Icehouse rose to international prominence, many of them were well past their best by the time it happened meaning that much of their best work remains neglected.
Here is a small sample of some personal favorites from this era and earlier with some brief explanatory notes where appropriate.
The Easybeats were one of the greatest bands of the 1960s,and are rightfully celebrated as the first great Australian band. Their greatness is undisputed however the Australian part of the story is cloudy.
The Easybeats were a British style band composed almost entirely of Brits who formed in a Sydney migrant hostel that still operates, today the site hosts a prison for people who are awaiting deportation named the Villawood Detention Centre.
They were not just British they were just off the boat. So, they were not Australian but they were a truly great band based in Australia, their brilliance must have helped other local musicians, they set a great example. Friday On My Mind is far and away their best known tune but they had numerous classics.
The Easybeats – Friday on My Mind
Friday On My Mind is a brilliant song but it is very British and very white, Good Times is a little funkier, less Beatles more Stones, this song was a massive hit decades later when covered by INXS.
The Easy Beats “Good Times”
Eagle Rock by Daddy Cool.
This song has been so overplayed that it has become easy for Australians to despise it, a fresh listen reveals Eagle Rock is a classic piece of pop blues reminiscent of a boppier Creedence Clearwater Revival, released in 1971 it was still a chart topper as late as 1990 when it hit number one in New Zealand.
AC/DC were drawn from the same group of British immigrants who formed the Easybeats. The guitarists Malcolm and Angus Young were the brothers of Easybeat George, who assumed production duties with AC/DC.
All of the important members were Brits, even those who came from outside the core coterie and after Bon Scott died in 1980 they became a completely British band.
Few guitarists have matched the heavy catchy riffs of Malcolm and Angus Young. I must admit that having been a big drinking band for me, I have never loved the as much since I stopped.
This is a classic typical AC/DC track with a simply brilliant video of them driving through Melbourne on the back of a flatbed truck. When Bon Scott was alive they were one of the greatest ever hard rock acts, they were pretty mediocre after his death except for Back in Black, the first post Bon Scott album.
IT’S A LONG WAY TO THE TOP (IF YOU WANNA ROCK ‘N’ ROLL) – AC DC
Cold Chisel came from Adelaide, Australia’s fourth largest city and not a noted cultural centre. Cold Chisel oved from Adelaide to Melbourne and then Sydney, where they finally found success.
The band never achieved great international success and this was a loss to the rest of the world. They were a strangely literate bluesy hard rock band capable of brilliant straight pop songs such as “Forever Now” as well as pub rock classics such as “Cheap Wine”. Interpersonal relationships within the band were often troubled with drunken internal brawls a regular item on the menu and they never made the international impact they deserved, but the work stands up very well.
Cold Chisel – Cheap Wine
Cold Chisel – Saturday Night
Cold Chisel – Forever Now
The Divinyls were a pop rock outfit in the Easybeats and (to a lesser extent) AC/DC tradition, they opened their set for many years with their brilliant version of the Easybeats “I’ll Make You Happy”, they were a brilliant band who achieved international success in the early 1990s when they were a crass imitation of their former selves with tracks like “I Touch Myself”
Chrissy Amphlett was a great singer and songwriter along with guitarist Mark McEntee, but because Chrissie Amphlett played quite a rough female character when Olivia Newton John style Kewpie dolls were the fashion they struggled for many years to make any international impact and even in Australia their greatness seemed to be under rewarded-Science Fiction is one of the greatest pop singles released anywhere anytime,yet it only reached number 13 on the Australian charts on release in 1983.(Source)
Divinyls ~ Science Fiction
Divinyls ~ Only Lonely
Icehouse were a vehicle for the classically trained Iva Davies.They had many great songs,my personal favorite is probably “Can’t Help Myself” but their most important song without a doubt is “Great Southern Land” one of the few truly great songs written about Australia.
Icehouse – Can’t Help Myself
Icehouse – Great Southern Land
INXS started in the late 1970s as a run of the mill post punk type outfit. By the third album Shabooh Shabaah in 1982 they were writing some excellent songs such as Don’t Change and the One Thing and had created a semi-original sound, a strange hybrid of synth heavy pop rock.
With their fourth album the Swing in 1984 the group improved immensely and created some of the best songs in the history of Oz Rock. Two albums later they became massive with the firstthreesingles from 1987’s Kick making the top 3 in the US, after that they basically fell off but they made a string of classic singles right through the 1980s, this track from 1984’s the Swing is a high point.
INXS – Love Is (What I Say)
Midnight Oil are probably the greatest band Australia has produced, they were very idiosyncratic, they did not sound like any other band at all and they were the most ostentatiously Australian band of all yet still managed to achieve mass international success due to the quality of their work which speaks for itself.
Midnight Oil – Saturday Night at the Capitol part 9 – Lucky Country
One of the reasons I really love Midnight Oil is the fact they were one of the very few people in Australia who made some attempt to understand and explain what is going on.
Some of their lyrics are very interesting and thought-provoking, even to those who don’t share their political views, these passages from the 1983 classic “Power and the Passion” provide a great pocket glimpse into Australia then and now.
“People, wasting away in paradise…..
Sunburnt faces around, rhe skin so brown
Smiling zinc cream and crowds, some days the beach never a cloud
Breathing eucalypt, pushing panel vans
munch junk food, laughing at the truth
cos Gough was tough til he hit the rough
Uncle Sam and John were quite enough
Too much of sunshine too much of sky
It’s just enough to make you want to cry…….
I see buildings, clothing the sky, in paradise
Sydney, nights are warm
Daytime telly, blue rinse dawn
Dad’s so bad he lives in the pub, it’s underarms and football clubs
Flat chat, Pine Gap, in every home a Big Mac
And no one goes outback, that’s that
You take what you get and get what you please
It’s better to die on your feet than to live on your knees”
Songwriters: James Moginie / Martin Rotsey / Peter Garrett / Peter Gifford / Robert Hirst
It is overwhelmingly likely that Australian Prime Minister Tony Abbott’s political career is over after Minister for Communications Malcolm Turnbull announced he will challenge Abbott for the Leadership of the Australian Liberal Party and the Prime Minister position in the coming days.
Deputy Prime Minster Julie Bishop visited the Prime Minister today and indicated that there has been a loss of confidence and it is over for him in her view.
Turnbull has resigned from Cabinet and asked for a ballot, Abbott can deny him but the mechanics of the situation are irrelevant. The successor is almost irrelevant. The underlying truth of the situation is that it is over, in the hours sincethe Turnbull bombshell, and the Bishop visit not a word of support has come from a single minister.
It has been clear since February that the Conservative Coalition Government of Australia were facing defeat with Abbott at the helm. It has only been a matter of time for a long time.
It is unclear whether Turnbull will succeed in defeating Abbott but it is now clear that Abbott will be replaced in the near future, his position has been untenable for some time and now it is over for the execrable Abbott.
Pejoratives struggle to do justice to the cretinous and despicable Abbott persona.
A disgrace, an embarrassment, Abbott’s leadership has been marked by laughable incompetence and total moral degradation.
Within 12 hours of the MH17 tragedy Abbott claimed that Novorussian rebels shot the plane down intentionally. Abbott told these disgusting lies in the Australian parliament.
Not one member of the cowardly and worthless Australian media have ever questioned a word of it. That;s not really within their brief at this stage.
They have cooking and talent shows to make. They are busy.
It is worth remembering that in the weeks following the MH17 tragedy Abbott floated the idea of sending Armed Australian police into the Donbass region.
At times he made even Stephen Harper look dignified and intelligent. Al least by comparison.
Abbott was so wretched and low that he claimed that IS “are coming to get you, all of you” and proceeded to recommend regime change in Syria.
Abbott was an empty vessel, a used car salesman from the depths of hell selling lies and fear and spreading ignorance and evil.
This was a man willing to stoop to literally any level to satisfy the demands of his Murdoch handlers.
If Abbott is not remembered as the worst ever Australian Prime Minister, it will simply be because he is too minor a figure to even bother remembering.. The man was simply a nothing on every level other than evil, where he was a hard working mediocrity.
The leadership ballot will be held tonight. The result is irrelevant, it is all over now for our dirty little man and the destruction of this evil clown is a joy to behold.
The Liberal Party room meeting is reported to start at 9.15 pm in Eastern Australia.
Treasurer Joe Hockey has come out in support of the Prime Minister. He is likely roadkill at this stage.
In recent weeks Abbott loyalist and Minister for Immigration peter Dutton claimed that the ABC and fFairfax were conducting a campaign against the Abbott Government. The ABC’s four television stations all fell off the air this afternoon for at least half an hour.
Scheduled repairs always take place late at night.
Australian minister Turnbull announces leadership challenge to PM
February 7th 2015.
The political career of the Conservative Australian Prime Minister Tony Abbott is effectively over fewer than 18 months after winning a resounding victory in the Australian Federal Election of September 2013. Abbott’s demise is now certain, as the media have turned on him completely to an extent that is almost suspicious.
Abbott’s personal decision to Knight the Queen’s husband as part of the Australia Day honours was seen as the last straw for his leadership within the Conservative coalition. Numerous prominent figures within the Coalition have expressed their loss of confidence in Abbott’s leadership in recent weeks and he is now the “wounded bull” forced to spend all day every day trying to assuage doubts about his position. Constantly questioned by the media about his future and his shortcomings as leader. He cannot get a moment of “clear air” and it will remain this way until his ultimate political demise, whether at the Tuesday, February 10th Coalition party meeting or in the succeeding months.
Abbott has made little impact as Prime Minister. His main strength has been his incompetence which caused him to be unable to implement his bizarre and incoherent policies.
From a rhetorical point of view the Abbott leadership has been marked by numerous unseemly lows. We had the “Team Australia” nonsense, the utterly ridiculous declarations regarding Scottish independence . The disgusting claim on 18th July, 2014, less than 24 hours after the incident. that the Novorussian rebels had deliberately destroyed Malaysian Airlines Flight 17 in a terrorist attack, an entirely sinister and incorrect statement. A statement that has proven completely contrary to the facts. A statement that in time will shame the nation. I especially enjoyed the statement that “all Australians support the Ukraine Armed Forces” in their catastrophic and murderous Eastern campaign.
“The government and, I believe, the Australian people, would like to repay Ukraine for its support and friendship, especially as Ukraine continues to be subject to active destabilisation and indeed outright invasion from Russia, a country it has never, ever sought to harm,” he said.” He has also preached austerity whilst expending tens of millions of dollars on the farcical “search” for Malaysian Airlines Flight 370.
The decision to Knight the Duke was weird but so was the whole decision to restore the system of Imperial style honours after a 30 year gap. But it was harmless and had no negative impact on peoples lives and overall I am confused as to why the Abbott government has been destabilised and why the media have taken the clear strategic decision to destroy Abbott’s career and this new Conservative Government. Interestingly another power struggle is currently under way at the very top of the New South Wales police force and it is hard to avoid the suspicion that there are unspoken reasons behind these power struggles.
Abbott is expected to be replaced by the Liberal Oligarch, former Barrister and Merchant Banker Malcolm Turnbull, politically Clintonesque but never popular in the electorate. A fact that is generally ascribed to the combination of wealth and arrogance. Turnbull was the head of Australia’s disastrous Republican movement, Abbott on the other hand is an arch Monarchist. Both attended Oxford University. Turnbull won a conspicuous victory over the British establishment as a Barrister in the 1980s, successfully representing the former British Intelligence Officer Peter Wright in his bid to publish the book Spy-catcher, a somewhat unflattering portrayal of the operations of MI5, the domestic British intelligence agency.
The Abbott government lists as it’s achievements the abolition of the Mining Tax on Oligarchs and the maintenance of brutal prison camps for refugees in Papua New Guinea. The Government’s politically disastrous first Budget will presumably be accorded the primary blame for the Prime Minister’s political downfall.
Although the comparatively warm and intelligent Turnbull is the front runner to replace Abbott, there are other possibilities.
One is the Foreign Minister Julie Bishop, another is the Cheneyesque Scott Morrison. It appears that Abbott still retains a reasonable degree of support from Right wing elements of the Coalition, but should they realise that Abbott is doomed, they may choose to try and insert anyone other than the unacceptably liberal Turnbull.
Sunday, February 8th. Brief Update.
The Coalition Vote on the Leadership spill was brought forward to Monday the 9th today. Interviews with supposed Sydney siege hostages were broadcast on Channel 7 tonight and in the course of the interviews it was made crystal clear that the false narrative that has been created was specifically crafted to discredit Prime Minister Abbott. I refer specifically to the Marcia Mikhael interview during which Mikhael related that she was told that the Prime Minister would not talk to the hostage taker as he demanded, because the Prime Minister “is a busy man.” This is a most silly and sinister story. It is unbelievably silly because we are expected to believe that a politician would ignore the chance at glory provided by causing hostages to be freed. It thus appears clear that the removal of PM Abbott is part of a large and well orchestrated plot. The identities and motives of the plotters however remain obscure.
Prime Minister Abbott shows his character in the Australian parliament, July 18th, 2014.
MH17 ‘looks less like an accident than a crime’
This week Elizabeth Regina became Britain’s longest ruling monarch.
The controlled media celebrated this although Elizabeth Regina has never achieved anything nor even attempted to do so.
Elizabeth Regina has been the Queen of Australia for more than half of Australia’s history as an independent state. The Monarchy is an inherently unjust and immoral institution and the truth of this can be easily assessed by simply viewing the hideous and hate filled society that is modern Britain.
Elizabeth Regina is reaching the end of her feted life yet she has not achieved or contributed anything during her life and neither has her pitiful and well “beyond mediocre” son.
The idea that these people are to be admired is an absolute travesty.
The level of stupidity is equivalent to the worship of the badge that sits at the front of a car.
These people are simply nothings. To offer a single positive word about any of them for even a second is a powerful indication that the person involved is mentally dead.
Saturday July the 18th marked another pathetic episode in the festival of simple mindedness and ignorance that comprises the bulk of political debate in Australia.
The “anti-Islam” protests inspired larger counter demonstrations in Melbourne and Sydney. The crowds were tiny other than in Melbourne where around one thousand “anti-racism” protesters met several hundred of the Reclaim (or Restore) Australia nationalists.
The New World Order rulers congratulate themselves as the “divide and rule” tactic successfully distracts people from the reality of the world we live in yet again.
A quick glance at the Age article on the event points to the quality of the political debate surrounding these events..
“These racists are like Hitler. He was allowed to go for five years and this is Hitler again. We cannot allow this,” Mr Adel said” in a piece of political rhetoric that bears no connection to reality at all. The reference to Hitler is the classic lowest common denominator tactic of the intellectually bereft.
This was the word from the re-badged “Restore ” Australia Mike Holt”
” they were not racists but were there to protest against the “creeping Islamisation of Australia.”
With the best will in the world I have literally absolutely no idea what Mr. Holt is even referring to but it is hard not to suspect that these people are simply a by-product of the brainwashing and vilification of Muslims and Arabs over several decades in the Zionist dominated Western media. They probably think that Halal meat tastes different.
Statistically speaking Australia’s Muslim population was a whopping 2.2% at the last census in 2011. There are more Australian Buddhists than Muslims. The idea that Australia is being Islamicised is an idiotic fantasy, it is that simple.
Far-right vs anti-racists: Aussie cops use pepper spray to quell chaos
(original April post)
The Awesome Ignorance of the Australian People Exposes the Evil Australian Media and the Success of New World Order Mind Control in the Southern Enclave.
Members of an anti Islam group named Reclaim Australia thought that Easter was a good time to hold an anti-Islam demonstration across most large Australian cities on Saturday, April 4th, 2015.
The demonstrations were met by counter demonstrations by “anti-Racist” activists in many places and there were a number of minor scuffles between the two groups in Melbourne and a couple of people were arrested.
A Nothing Event.
All in all a rather predictable and nothing event all around. The crowds who attended the Reclaim Australia demonstrations were not large, in the hundreds rather than thousands, but it was still extremely depressing to witness such a public and infantile display of the broader ignorance and simple mindedness that is predominant in Australian thought across all classes and age groups. These seem to be the ties that bind the Australian mind. This has nothing to do with stupidity in the innate sense. Being an Australian, being a member of the Australian community basically requires people to maintain their mind at a very low, infantile level, just to fit in.
These are not stupid or ignorant people inherently, far from it, a tremendous effort has been taken especially by our apparently demonic corporate media, both state and private to impose simple mindedness and awesome ignorance upon the Australian population so that people literally never develop the innate tools of analysis and reasoning that would enable them to understand and oppose the New World Order project.
The people who attended the Reclaim Australia protest have a genuine grievance, in many cases, but their utter inability to think analytically or to begin to understand power means that their grievances are easily misdirected by the powers of evil onto any convenient scapegoat the controlled media prods them towards.
These are the people of mental death.
I am going therefore to provide a very simple framework for understand power in this world in the hope that these ridiculous misdirections may be prevented or lessened in future. A Couple of Simple Things.
In order to understand the world at all it is helpful to think about why something is happening or being allowed to happen. Do not simply react against the person or element of your environment that you find upsetting or displeasing but try and think about the course of events that led to the situation that troubles and therefore who is actually responsible. If we stop and think about it for five seconds it can be easily recognised that the people who live in other countries, the prospective immigrants have little or no impact on the policy making of the Australian government.
The Reason for Immigration is Actually Quite Simple.
The reason for immigration in Australia is actually very simple. Australian immigration policies have absolutely nothing to do with multiculturalism or a tolerant society or any of the crap that the lying politicians have claimed for decades. Nothing.
The Australian policy of constant high levels of immigration is designed quite simply to maintain an acceptably high level of unemployment and cause a constant labour surplus in order to serve the interests of the men from the Chambers of Commerce who fund the major political parties, and as a consequence own the government of Australia,.
The whole program is there to make sure that the “Capital class” meaning the Bankers and all the businesses who essentially work for the Bankers always have the upper hand as when you have very low unemployment levels , as Australia had before the 1970s, the workers simply have too much power. The relative equality of power that you get between worker and boss in the low or no unemployment economy is completely unacceptable to the real owners of the Australian government and it had to be phased out as it has been for that reason.
Unemployment Must Be Maintained at an Acceptably High Level.
The lie has gotten so big and so silly that the Australian Government often frequently tries to pretend that 5% unemployment is actually equivalent to no unemployment at all, but merely the level of “churn” as people change jobs.
This is transparent nonsense of course. People who simply change jobs never even appear on the unemployment figures as anyone who does any work in any given month does not appear on them so the argument is a complete joke.
Added to that is the fact that Australia has actually reached that low 5% level and it turned out that there were still hundreds of thousands of people long term unemployed at that time. The 5% claim is pure nonsense but it does point to the truth that 5% is the absolute minimum acceptable level to the owners of Australia.
Because of the power that voters still wield, ideally the unemployment level has to be maintained between 5 % and 8%, any lower than 5% and the men from the Chamber of Commerce start lobbying for higher immigration levels and whining about non-existent labour shortages in order to maintain their position of power and supremacy in the Australian economy.
Any higher than 8% and the voters may act against the political party in power at the time.
Immigration at a constant high level (never ever to be debated) is how the “owners” ensure the Government maintains the position of strength of the Corporate Oligarchs who own Australia. It is that simple, so blaming the people who had no power over the policy but who came here as a result of it is nothing less than epic stupidity. The Counterargument.
The argument that is trotted out in opposition to this is that immigrants boost the overall size of the economy, increase the overall demand, so there is negligible or even positive economic outcome.
Over decades this is true. Once people have lived in Australia for decades, the economic impact is either negligible or positive, but that situation is never actually achieved when there are constant high levels of new immigrants. who through no fault of their own, do undoubtedly have a negative impact on the Australian economy and specifically on the interests of the Australian labour force, again through no fault on their part. Remittances End the Argument.
The truth is that many of the people, indeed most of the people who have emigrated to Australia are very nice people with many virtues. One virtue that many immigrants share is a loyalty to their families, a very laudable quality. In many cases one of the manifestations of this loyalty is that recent immigrants, send much of their salary or even benefit income home to their family.
Guess what the impact is on the Australian economy every time that happens? This is in every case a straight out loss to the Australian economy, it is quite simple and yet this also shows that the immigrants are good people, their individual quality is not the issue,
According to the most recent World Bank statistics available, for the year 2011, at least $4 billion dollars leaves Australia each year in this manner. This probably only represents a small fraction of the total sum, yet this money alone is equivalent to 80,000 median wage jobs in Australia. The impact is very clear and the absurdity of maintaining the high levels of immigration to Australia regardless of the economic circumstances should be obvious
The Scapegoat Parade.
The fact that these polices are devised and implemented on behalf of the Corporate owners of the Government may explain why Australian Governments,especially Conservative governments spend so much time cycling through different scapegoats to demonise in order to hide the fact that the interests of the nation and the people are secondary to them.
The people are a problem they are to manage on behalf of the corporate owners, and misdirection and scapegoating the stupefied and brainwashed Australian people is a key tactic.
There will always be a phony crisis with a phony perpetrator for the simple minded to fixate upon and direct all their resentment towards. It could be anyone. Muslims today, boat people tomorrow, and later the unemployed. The force of the people’s resentment must always be misdirected. The identities of the destruction of the Australian lifestyle must always be protected.
Any Debate but Immigration.
We are presented with a bizarre and nonsensical set of narratives from the controlled media towards that end. There is no immigration issue, only a problem with boat people. Everyone is free to jump up and down and scream until they are blue in the face about boat people, but let’s not ever hear a word about the true purpose or true beneficiaries of the immigration program. That is off limits. Never to be discussed.
The Murdoch Group and the state run Australian Broadcasting Corporation appear to have performed a mass lobotomy on many of the Australian people along with their lesser media minions. I hope to destroy some of the evil work they have done though it seems an almost impossible task.
In order to protect the program two avenues of misdirection are presented to the people as the only options.
There is the “ignorant bigot” option and the simple minded “I’m a nice person” the more immigrants the better “anti-Immigration is racism” nonsense of the counter demonstrators.
One group is more egregious certainly, but the ignorance and simple mindedness is shared equally across both groups. The United States has an Open Southern border for the same reason.
It is worth noting that this pattern of behavior can be seen across the West with the United States being a most obvious example. A nation with an official military budget of more than $700 billion dollars, and hundreds of military bases around the world and yet it has an open southern border.
Securing the border should be a fundamental task of the Security forces of any nation yet here we have the most powerful military force the earth has ever seen and they are somehow unable to perform this most basic task, Why?
For the exact same reason that Australia is not allowed to have an immigration debate, A closed border might hamper the financial interests of the US ruling class. Who appear to be the most venal and corrupt group who ever walked the earth.
The actual people who cross the border are largely blameless, closing the border is not their responsibility. Their willingness to work for very low wages is quite understandable. The border is deliberately left open so that the pool of desperate people crossing the border will maintain the wages of US workers at a low level and maintain a large labour surplus at all times.
The employer offering you wages of $8 dollars an hour an always find a Mexican to do the job for even less if you refuse. It destroys the bargaining power of the American labor force almost entirely. The Muslim threat to Australia is non-existent
If you have the slightest understanding of the world you may have picked up on the rather straightforward fact that in the real world Western nations invade Muslim nations and destroy them. The West is the dominant power in the world running an imperial project to dominate the world so the entire notion that Muslims are plotting to dominate the world or take over Australia is really pitiful. These pathetic canards are parroted by the same people who believed that we had to send thousands of Australians to die in the Vietnam Civil War in order to prevent the “red tide” from the North.
The fact is that the Communists won the war and there was no “red tide” and the whole thing was pure bullshit . The Cold War was another immaculate con job from start to finish from the warmongers of the West that has now been replaced with the even more infantile and dishonest War on Terror.
I would actually like these people to provide an example of a Muslim nation attacking the sovereign territory of a Western nation in recent history. Try and find a single example in the post World War 2 era if you can and then count those examples against the Western acts of aggression against Muslim states. The last “Muslim” empire worthy of the name were the Ottoman Turks. The Ottoman Empire ceased to exist around a century ago.
The War on Terror is a Complete Con.
Australians in their awesome ignorance (myself included), were easy victims of the propaganda campaign that augmented the phoney War on Terror.
The war on terror was a manufactured farce created in order to inflict the despicable Israeli mindset upon the West and to provide the military industrial complex with a fresh stable of enemies to bomb and “liberate.”
The whole scapegoating of Muslims phenomenon is quite a new one for Australia. When the Australian Security Services accidentally blew up and killed three people in Sydney in the late 1970’s and needed a patsy, they turned to the Ananda Marga, a Hare Krishna offshoot and framed several members of the group for the attack. One of the most obvious and incompetent (it was really an accident) false flags ever conducted.
The whole Islamaphobia phenomenon is completely based on lies generally constructed around false flag terror attacks conducted by Western Intelligence Agencies and their cut-outs.
The September 11th attacks were not conducted by Muslims. There were no hijacked passenger aircraft attacks at all on September 11th a fact at can be proven simply by looking at a picture of the plane that struck the South tower and comparing it to what it was supposed to be- a United Airlines Jet.
The World Trade Center was attacked and destroyed using pre-planted explosive devices and incendiaries. The destruction of WTC7 makes it obvious, but the fact is the whole WTC was attacked with bombs. If you do not know that then you do not understand the world we live in at all.
Compiled Footage of Building 7’s Collapse
All of the Terror is Synthetic and Managed.
This is the most blatant example but as it happens all of the big terror attacks that have taken place in the West over the past thirty years have been false flag attacks managed and conducted by Western intelligence agencies and their cut outs.
Muslims did not murder all those people in Bali, and as it happens, Tim McVeigh and Terry Nichols did not murder all those people in Oklahoma City either, Both were false flags, augmented attacks using managed patsies with small devices.
Before Muslims became the go to scapegoat the American “Patriot” movement was targeted in exactly the same way.
London, Madrid, Sydney, Ottawa. Paris, Copenhagen, WTC 93 were all false flags and/or downright hoax events. Your entire narrative of the supposed “Muslim threat” is completely anchored in fallacy! You are sleepwalking through life in a mentally dead zombified state.
The astonishing thing is that these people have not even noticed that a police state is being erected around them and yet they have the hide to moan about “freedom” whilst they cheer and support every last police state measure the New World Order representatives in Australia implement! Words fail me.
Muslim Power in Australia.
Muslims as a group have almost no political power in Australia. That is why the buffoons of Reclaim Australia are free to spout whatever bile they want against Muslims yet when a Perth man named Brendan O’ Connell made unkind remarks about the Jewish religion he was sentenced to THREE YEARS IN PRISON!
If Muslims had any real power in Australia they would be able to achieve similar results, they do not because they can not.
The Sharia Nonsense is Almost Funny.
I also noticed among the crowds the unfathomable notion that some Australians in their truly awesome, world beating ignorance think that Muslims want to inflict Sharia Law upon them.
A couple of basic facts. The Australian Muslim population is around 2% of the overall population. There is therefore no possibility that even if every single Australian Muslim wanted to implement Sharia law, which they do not, that they could do so.
Even if Australia’s Muslim community was demographically significant, and even if they wanted to implement Sharia Law, it would never be imposed upon non Muslims because Sharia Law is not applied to non Muslims.
It is so sad to see what has been done to the Australian people and the results are really a grotesque comedy of idiocy. Conclusion-The World is a Business.
The Islamophobia exists for a very specific reason. It is there to provide a safe release valve for those who are unable to comprehend the very simple fact that the cause of their economic and political marginalisation and increasing alienation has nothing to do with the actions of Muslims or indeed immigrants.
The real source is actually the New World Order corporatocracy that seeks to dominate the entire planet like a Colony and sees Australia as just another plantation, while using the media they already own and the politicians they purchase in order to achieve their goal of a World Wide corporate super state with complete and total power.
It was clearly decided decades ago that all manufacturing would be removed from the West and all those jobs be imported to China and other places where the workers could still be paid and worked as slaves.
The system of tariffs that were designed to protect Australian workers from the predatory labour practices in other states were largely demolished.
The path chosen was clear. Close all the factories in the West and pay people in China slave labor wages and as long as the freight costs are less than the massive saving in labor costs, Western manufacturers will not be able to compete.
The people who essentially abandoned the Sovereignty of Australia were the leading Australian politicians, all of them over the past forty years. They have been entrusted with the position by the Corporate masters on the basis of their ability to hoodwink, con and misdirect the people of Australia. If the pitiful spectacle of the Reclaim Australia Easter travesty is any indication they served their masters well.

A Brief Note on Australian Casualties in Vietnam-
The Official Australian death toll fro the Vietnam intervention was just under 500, since the war ended countless others have undoubtedly fallen to PTSD related suicide that related to their traumatic experiences of war. Thousands of Australian were indeed sent to Vietnam including many conscripts, the phrase “thousands of Australians were sent to die in Vietnam” however could be misconstrued as an exaggeration of the casualties of Australian troops there that was not intended.

Calls for Australia to use G20 presidency to cut remittance costs – Australia Network News (Australian Broadcasting Corporation)
This story is not about Roman Catholicism, Christianity or religion. This is the story about a small group of venal and self-serving corrupt individuals whose commitment to the institution they were a part of completely destroyed their capacity to live up to the tenets of either the Christian faith nor common decency. The very simple idea that the Church should serve the congregation is completely alien to these men who have nothing but derision and contempt for their congregation and the many victims within.
This a story of power and corruption and the names of the institutions are almost immaterial, the deplorable and low conduct described has been exhibited across a wide variety of Western institutions, in Washington DC, in London, in Northern Ireland, Nebraska and Queensland, to name a few very obvious cases.
To state, as Adam Brereton did in the Guardian in July 2014 that “child abuse in Australia has a distinctly Catholic character” is simply an indication of the profound ignorance of the writer.
The Guardian piece is grounded in two patently incorrect assumptions.
One is the obvious point that many, indeed apparently all major religious institutions located in Australia have harbored child abusers within their ranks at one time or another. To single out the Catholic Church is to by implication exonerate all the others. Why anyone would want to do that or how anyone could possibly be so simple-minded and infantile is a mystery beyond contemplation.
The other tremendously foolish assumption is that WE KNOW what has taken place. What has taken place in the past is still in the process of emerging. Only some of the parties involved have been identified.
The tactic of attacking one specific group serves only to obscure the real issues these cases present.
The truth is that power in Australia has a character of corruption. The cover up of child abuse is merely one consequence of that corruption and the Australian Catholic Church is but one of many prominent Australian institutions that have behaved in a despicable and contemptible manner towards the people of Australia, whom they apparently view with nothing but disdain, judging by their actions.
The Venal, Morally Corrupt and Wicked Career of Cardinal George Pell
Cardinal George Pell was born in 1941, in 1960 he began his “priestly studies” and was ordained as a priest of the Australian Roman Catholic Church in 1966. Pell was elevated to the position of Archbishop of Melbourne in 1996, three years after accompanying Ridsdale, the notorious paedophile he had protected for decades, to court.
The career of Cardinal George Pell, behind the grandiloquent titles, stands as a grotesque and hideous caricature of the spiritual leader. For decades Pell expended the maximum possible effort to protect known paedophile priests from justice and to ensure that their victims were silenced and marginalised.
The career of Cardinal Pell has been one of the assiduous devotion to the protection of evil. Because of his actions, hundreds of children have been raped by known child abusers in his employ and under the protection of his formerly respected institution. In person Cardinal Pell is almost the parody of the pompous and self-important hypocrite. He poses to this day as a well intentioned and unsuspecting victim of circumstance. This is laughable.
The actions of Cardinal Pell have enabled and strengthened evil in Australia. This is the Pell contribution, and the extraordinary case of Gerald Ridsdale and the protection he was offered by the church over a period of decades makes this completely clear.
Protectors of Evil- the Case of Gerald Ridsdale.
Gerald Ridsdale was born in 1934, he is a defrocked Catholic priest and one of Australia’s most prolific convicted child rapists. Ridsdale has been convicted of more than one hundred counts of child sexual abuse over several decades. Allegations of child rape against Ridsdale date back to the mid 1950s. Ridsdale’s wikipedia page gives an account of the moves that were made well after his criminal activities were known to the leaders of the church.
“the bishop of the Roman Catholic Diocese of Ballarat, Ronald Mulkearns, claimed that he had no idea of Ridsdale’s actions until 1975, when the priest was in Inglewood police officer involved with the case spoke to Mulkearns; the latter promised to handle Ridsdale, but moved him on instead. In 1976, Ridsdale was moved to Edenhope. Operation Arcadia, a three-month police investigation into what Mulkearns knew about Ridsdale, concluded that he knew about Ridsdale’s crimes earlier than he admitted. Subsequent revelations in 2013 claimed that Risdale, aged 21, allegedly sexually abused boys as early as 1955.”
“Ridsdale was moved in 1980 to the National Pastoral Institute in Elsternwick, in Melbourne. In 1981 he was moved to Sydney. He was moved to Horsham in 1986; there, two people made complaints about him in 1988. In 1990, Ridsdale was sent to New Mexico. He was appointed chaplain at St. John of God hospital in Richmond on the northwestern outskirts of Sydney. While he was working there, a victim phoned Victoria Police, leading to Risdale’s arrest three months later.”
Following decades of protection from the Australian Catholic Church, who simply moved the predator to another parish when he committed crimes in a certain area (NINE TIMES!) and a compliant police force apparently repeatedly willing to abrogate their responsibility and allow the church to deal with the matter, Ridsdale was finally prosecuted for 30 child sex offenses in 1993.
At subsequent trials Ridsdale was convicted of a further 81 child sex offenses making a grand total of 111 child sex abuse convictions against the long protected priest who will be eligible for parole in the year 2019.
Ridsdale is merely the most prolific and notorious example of the common practice of simply shipping child raping priests onto another unsuspecting parish to harvest new victims. The church acted as a co-perpetrator, it is that simple, they were accessories both before and after the fact. They conspired to pervert the course of justice as a standard operating procedure.
”In May 1993, Ridsdale was charged on summons in the Melbourne Magistrates Court with thirty counts of indecent assault against nine boys aged between 12 and 16 between 1974 and 1980. Cardinal George Pell, a former Archbishop of Melbourne, testified before the 1993 hearing that Pell, while an assistant priest at St Alipius’ Church with Ridsdale in the 1970s, shared a house together. Pell denied knowing about any of Ridsdale’s ways. Ridsdale pleaded guilty and was sentenced to 12 months’ jail with a non-parole period of three months. A few weeks later, Ridsdale was first put on trial on charges of sexually abusing children. He was jailed in 1994 after pleading guilty to 46 charges of abusing 20 boys and one girl between 1961 and 1982. He was sentenced to 18 years’ imprisonment with a minimum of 15 years, to be served cumulatively with the previous sentence.
“In 2006, he pleaded guilty to 35 charges relating to indecent assault against 10 boys between 1970 and 1987. He was sentenced in 2006 to 13 years’ imprisonment and with a minimum of seven years, three years of which was ordered to be served concurrently.”
The Ridsdale case also involves the allegation that Ridsdale raped a young girl in the 1970s at the home he shared with Pell, and the crime was actually heard by another priest, (not Pell), who did nothing.
“The inquiry heard the defrocked priest abused the girl at the Ballarat East presbytery in the 1970s, where he was living with a number of other priests, including Australia’s now most senior Catholic leader (Cardinal George Pell)
The inquiry heard the girl went to look at the rock collection in Ridsdale’s bedroom, but saw a pornographic magazine and ran away. When Ridsdale caught up to her, he raped her.”
The girl was eleven years old.
When Gerald Ridsdale attended court in 1993 to plead guilty to the initial batch of 30 child abuse charges, his old housemate George Pell there to offer comfort and support and to act as an advocate.
How Do Pedophiles Choose The Institutional Cover They Will Use?
The Catholic church is but one of many religious and secualar institutions that have harbored and protected child rapists. The perpetrators of these offenses are often “low opportunists” who will place themselves in positions where they have access to and power over potential victims. It doesn’t mean all scout leaders are like that because one or two are and the same goes for all the other groups represented. Make no mistake ALL other groups of the Australian community are represented.
One of the most recent horrific and proven serial child rapists in the US was a highly respected and well liked American Football (gridiron) coach named Jerry Sandusky. It’s not about being a football coach or a scout leader or a Catholic priest is about gaining a position of trust and power with access to children.
The more trusted and venerated the institution the abuser hides behind the more attractive the institution will be to potential abusers. That’s one reason for all the priests. It was one of the best covers available, because it would sound crazy, the victim would sound crazy, and the more devout the community the crazier it would sound.
Imagine what it would be like in Ireland or Italy , a place where the Roman Catholic Church has historically been highly venerated. The child would try to tell the parents or someone and the response would be “What the hell are you saying he’s a holy man!”
So it seems infantile and unfair to blame the institutions on the basis of them being used as a cover by child rapists, because if you understand their psychology a little, they will always try to target the best covers, the most respected institutions, as this will provide the best chance at successful evasion of the law and the continuing ability to offend.
The response that institutions make to the unhappy discovery that they have in their employ a child rapist, on the other hand, is very telling.
In the case of the Catholic Church in Australia there has clearly been a long established pattern of protecting the institution-and the abuser before the victims or the congregation of the Church.
It is not disputed that the church knew that Ridsdale was a predator and protected him from prosecution and scrutiny by simply moving him on repeatedly when he abused children. The identities of Ridsdale’s assistants in evil are the only thing in dispute. Ridsdale crimes against children became known to the church by 1975 at the very latest, Ridsdale continued to be employed by the church for at least another decade and a half, the depraved crime spree was only halted when finally one of the victims went directly to the police and the entire cover up began to collapse.
The case of David Ridsdale raped by his Uncle Gerald and allegedly offered a bribe to keep quiet about it by Pell exemplifies the moral corruption of both the institution and many senior individuals within it.
David Ridsdale is the nephew of Gerald Risdale. After being sexually abused by Gerald, David sought assistance from George Pell. David Ridsdale alleges, and there is no reason to doubt the claim, that Pell responded by asking
“What would it take to make you keep quiet about this?”
Pell is therefore personally responsible, without any doubt in my opinion, for protecting Gerald Ridsdale and all the known facts corroborate this version of events.
Stunning Attack on Cardinal Pell from Vatican Child Abuse Reformer Peter Saunders.
On Sunday May 31st, the Australian version of the Sixty Minutes program broadcast a most extraordinary interview with a member of the Vatican appointed anti-child abuse commission Peter Saunders.
It comes more than 20 years too late but the wicked and self-serving Cardinal Pell has finally been publicly destroyed. It was very cathartic viewing..
On Cardinal Pell,
“cold hearted, callous and almost sociopathic” a man who displayed a “lack of care”
“quite a dangerous individual”
Saunders added that
“I see not a shred of evidence that Pell has any sympathy, empathy or any kind of understanding or concern for victims and survivors.”
On Ridsdale having been moved nine times Saunders stated.
“It is inconceivable that they (the hierarchy of the Catholic Church in Victoria, including Pell) would not have known.”
Adding the blistering…
“These are the people who should be facing criminal charges. These are people who have allowed theabuse of children to continue. And that is an unforgivable crime.”
Every word that Saunders spoke could have been applied to the current British Home Secretary Theresa May and Prime Minister David Cameron amongst many other notables of the British establishment over decades only to name one obvious example.
These statements of truth were met by Cardinal Pell, typically, with threats of legal action, as if the deluded clown actually believes he will benefit from further scrutiny of his actions in a courtroom!
What on earth did Australian Catholics do to deserve such arrogant, brutish, despicable protectors of evil as “spiritual leaders”?
This is what Pell has been doing for decades of course, reaching into the large church pot of cash in order to make the problem go away by splashing as much of it around as was required to make a problem go away.
The Catholic Church the “Christian” Church that Makes Hundreds of Millions of Tax Free Dollars a Year from its Extensive Gambling Interests!
Religious organisations in Australia are exempt from paying company tax.The rationale behind this policy seems obvious, the Government did not want to be seen to be taking their cut from the donations boxes of churches.
This loophole is exploited in order to run tax free businesses with no religious connection by a wide variety of Australian religious groups.
The most successful products that the tax exempt status has inspired are probably the line of breakfast cereals and other foods run by the Seventh Day Adventist church under the Sanitarium brand name. Clearly the tax free loophole is being exploited here.
The products that the Seventh Day Adventist sell are at least healthy and positive.
The Australian Catholic Church on the other hand is the owner/shareholder of a number of gaming venues in Australia and according to the lone article the major Australian media have ever written on this subject,
In 2012, the profit from the Catholic holdings in Australian Gaming Venues was more than $130 million dollars
This is a purportedly Christian organisation that is so venal, so greedy, so morally bankrupt that they think it is perfectly okay for them to sell addictive and destructive products (gambling and alcohol) that destroy the lives and families of countless Australians every year!
According to the Australian Catholic Church it is ok for them to do this because after the person loses their home and their family due to their alcohol and gambling addiction the church will chip in to help them out!
The church owns venues that contain hundreds of the hypnotic, mind numbing and completely rigged poker machines (the machines are set to simply pay out around 85% of the money that is put into them,literally all players will lose over time) that see victims sit in a trance for hours as they waste all money on an addictive and unwinnable wager,
For the Catholic Church to be an active participant in this industry indicates that they simply do not care what anyone thinks of them. This is one of those in your face, “go f.. yourself” type of organisations in the level of it’s venality and arrogance.
The appearance even of human decency and moral behavior is a thousand miles beyond them. That ship apparently sailed in the deep distant past. All that remains is the hollowed out carcass produced by these modern day Pharisees.on their very own highway to hell.
These are the actions of people with nothing but contempt for the people of their congregation and for the most basic tenets of the Christian faith.
In it’s way this story is even more shocking than the protection of paedophiles by the Australian Catholic Church because whilst those actions came in response to something unexpected and aberrant, The paedophile protection is what they do when things go wrong, the drinking and gambling venues, these are the brazen everyday reality of the functionally satanic Australian Catholic Church.
Why stop at gaming, why not get into brothels also? After all, running a Licensed brothel is not against the Law any more than running a Licensed Gaming venue so why not go all the way and get into the whorehouse game? Just think how many people the church might help with the funds raised!
The Modern Day Pharisees,
“They taught the law but did not practice some of the most important parts of the law — justice, mercy, faithfulness to God. They obeyed the minutiae of the law such as tithing spices but not the weightier matters of the law. (Matt 23:23-24”
“They presented an appearance of being ‘clean’ (self-restrained, not involved in carnal matters), yet they were dirty inside: they seethed with hidden worldly desires, carnality. They were full of greed and self-indulgence.” (Matt 23:25-26)
“They exhibited themselves as righteous on account of being scrupulous keepers of the law, but were in fact not righteous: their mask of righteousness hid a secret inner world of ungodly thoughts and feelings. They were full of wickedness. They were like whitewashed tombs, beautiful on the outside, but full of dead men’s bones.” (Matt 23:27-28)
“They professed a high regard for the dead prophets of old, and claimed that they would never have persecuted and murdered prophets, when in fact they were cut from the same cloth as the persecutors and murderers: they too had murderous blood in their veins.” (Matt 23:29-36
The Pharisees were the corrupt ruling religious elite in Jerusalem at the time of the life of the Christ figure. Anyone who wants to interpret the story of the Pharisees in the Bible as being intended to demonstrate the unique corruption of Jewish religious leadership, whether in Roman ruled Jerusalem or more generally is completely missing the point of the story in my opinion.
One need only look at the leadership of Australian Catholic Church to understand that the story of the Pharisees could be applied to any hypocritical, self-serving and corrupt religious institution in any place at any time. These are the people whom, seduced by power and status, betray their professed ideals and beliefs in exchange for power in this world.
Make no mistake that if George Pell had been a religious leader in Roman Jerusalem in early AD, he would have been the first in the queue calling for the execution of the Christ figure. He may even have helped out with the nails because Cardinal Pell is the very mirror image of the Pharisees, a corrupt self-serving hypocrite of the lowest and most despicable type. If the people at Vatican headquarters do not relieve him of his commission in the near future it will be clear that the once venerated Roman Catholic Church is beyond reform or repair.
Pope’s top advisor says callous Cardinal Pell should step down
Cardinal George Pell was himself accused of child sex offenses relating to the alleged rape of a 12 year old boy at a Catholic summer camp in 1960.The matter was investigated by a church appointed commission of inquiry and in 2002 it was found that the complainant was a credible witness but that given Pell’s vehement denials, the passage of time and attendant lack of corroboration, the claims could not be proven.
Nor disproven. The truth was unclear. I chose not to make mention of this because the facts are not known and therefore all associated assertions must by necessity and fairness, be equivocal.
The case against Gerald Ridsdale is unequivocal. Beyond doubt. The protection the church offered Ridsdale is also unequivocal and without doubt. The fact that Ridsdale continued to rape children for more than a decade after his criminal predilections were known to the church hierarchy is also beyond all doubt.
With so much irrefutable evidence of these misdeeds and crimes the neither proven nor disproven allegations against Pell seemed redundant.

ANZAC Day 2015 100th “Anniversary” of the Dardanelles Fiasco.
Tomorrow, April 25th will mark the 100th anniversary of the failed British, Australian and New Zealand attack on Gallipoli, Turkey. This is an extremely big deal in Australia because the First World War was the first major war for the Australian military, Australia having become an independent nation at the beginning of 1901 and Gallipoli was the first battle of that war.
The Gallipoli campaign involved an eight month attack on a remote region of Turkey for unknown reasons that left more than 6,000 Australians dead and achieved absolutely nothing positive, other than for the Turks, whose Commander at Gallipoli Kamal Attaturk rose to lead the post Ottoman Turkish nation who justifiably celebrate their great victory at Gallipoli.
World War 1 for Australia- a Human Catastrophe Borne of Blind Loyalty to the British Empire.
To Remember the soldiers who died in our name is a very good thing, to do otherwise would be unthinkable, but we do the sacrifice they made a disservice if we neglect to mention the context in which the wars were fought. The reasons or lack thereof for the sacrifice that we commemorate.
World War I was completely unnecessary, achieved absolutely nothing and ultimately was little more than an elite organised mass human blood sacrifice. Neither Australia nor even Britain were under any real threat. The lesson we have only half learned is that Australia should never become involved in Imperial wars that have no bearing on Australia and take place in distant continents ever again.
More than 420,000 Australians participated in World War 1, more than 60,000 died and 137,000 more were wounded.
In 1915, the Australian population was recorded at fewer than 5 million, Translated into today’s Australia with a population of around 23 million people, that would be the equivalent of more than 270,000 killed and 630,000 wounded and a deployment of 2 million. The scale of the deployment was clearly pure madness.
A Very Brief History of the Australian Military.
Like all forces that are not great powers, the history of the Australian Military is of little interest to outsiders. To put it in the simplest terms, by and large the history of the Australian military is a very respectable one, albeit almost always in the capacity of the imperial Janissary. This overall relatively positive history is marred by two major calamities. The calamities were the World War 1 involvement and the consequences of the fall of Singapore in early 1942 that saw thousands of Australian forces trapped and captured by the Japanese Army.
Each of these calamities was caused by blind faith in Britain and the naive, indeed idiotic belief that Britain would act loyally towards Australia.
The Birth of a Nation?
It seems mad that the single most disastrous decision ever made by an Australian government should be celebrated in any way. Did anyone actually think to ask the Australian Prime Minister Billy Hughes at the end of the war,what Australia had achieved for the loss of 60,000 dead men (and women)?
The answer for decades was that it was worth it because the valor of our troops proved to the British that Austral ans were no longer convicts, but honorable and worthy of respect. That seems to be why the catastrophe occurred, the desperate desire for the approval of the British establishment mobilised the Australian politicians and people alike it seems.
It appears that Australians were intensely brainwashed to respect the British establishment despite their transparently criminal and vile nature and to take seriously the whole “island of reprobates” myth.
The Meaning of Independence.
Even when the war is portrayed critically we are delivered simple minded trash about it all being the fault of the British aristocrats who led the British army at that time.
Yet it was Australian politicians that wasted hundreds of millions of dollars and hundreds of thousands of young Australian lives on the basis of the pathetic fantasy of winning the respect of the British.
The story of Gallipoli only goes to show that in 1915 Australia was independent in name only and that the mindset of the Australian political leadership was no more than obedience and fealty to the British.
The Convict Stain is a Joke.
The real crime, the real stain we bear as Australians is that of the destruction and displacement of the indigenous Australian civilisation that we displaced and largely destroyed.It is obvious to anyone with any sense that the whole convict story was a bunch of self serving tosh the British used to mask the real crime, the theft of the continent and the declaration that the existing inhabitants were flora and fauna!.
The British had recently abolished slavery, but the slave owner mindset persisted The British wanted to steal Australia and there was a lack of volunteers,so the convict transportations were simply a means by which to press gang sufficient numbers of the British underclass to leave and at the same time also provide a slave labor work force to help induce the free settlers to join the colony. Settlers and workers were required in order to populate the continent. and thus extend their Empire to the southern island continent, the convicts were two birds with one stone. Many of the people they sent were criminals, but many were not. People were transported for belonging to Trade Unions and the rule of Law was an absolute joke in Britain as remains the case to this very day.The truly wicked British criminals rule and live behind a veil of legal impunity and do not hesitate to frame any who threaten their position.
Today a man named Michael Shrimpton sits in a British jail because he offered intelligence about a terror threat in good faith to the British government. The corruption is truly breathtaking and was presumably even more pronounced in the 18th century. All the findings of British courts both then and now can thus be treated with skepticism if not outright contempt
The British System is Completely Corrupt, Hypocritical and Morally Bankrupt.
High status individuals still enjoy immunity from prosecution. The nauseating case of the pathetic worm Greville Janner makes it absolutely clear that this persists to this very day. So of course the people transported were almost all members of the underclass, the upper echelon criminals enjoyed immunity in Britain in the 18th century as they do today.
A week before the DPP Alison Saunders adjudged Janner unfit for trial on dozens of cases of child rape Janner had written and signed a letter to the House of Lords stating that he would like to extend his leave from the House, this fact surely makes the position of the DPP completely untenable. How is that possibly tolerable? Not only is it tolerable but this is the British way, this is the tradition.
So the whole idea that Australia was a “nation of miscreants” in need of redemption from the “convict stain” was pure nonsense, a farce that the British managed to inculcate in Australians and this was a root cause of the catastrophe of Australia in World War 1.
It is astonishing the way the Australian leadership and people were never able to see Britain for what it was, a criminal Empire run by feudalist crime lords with sick predilections and no legitimate claim to the throne under the supposed bloodline system.
The real British monarch is some anonymous bloke who lives in country New South Wales. Not that it matters.
Transportation for whatever reason was thus a rescue, the Australians were at least physically, beyond the clutches of the venal and wicked British establishment. They deserve gratitude for that if nothing else.
Head Office Moves to Washington DC.
It made perfect sense for Australia to transfer loyalties to the new head office of the empire, Washington DC during World War 2 and all in all, coup aside, the Americans were a far better ally than the UK for the obvious reason that the American leadership did not share the neuroses and class obsessions of the British establishment.
Australian forces participated in the Korean and Vietnam wars, suffering around 500 deaths in each, lost forty soldiers in the Afghan war,(the US remains but the Australians have departed) and also participated in the criminal attack on iraq,This means that the former Australian PM John Howard is an unprosecuted war criminal along with Bush, Blair and the rest.Howar deserves condemnation as for the =decision to join the criminal coalition of the willing.
From a purely Australian viewpoint Howard deserves immense credit for not subjecting the Australian military to the nightmare occupation of Iraq. As a result Australia suffered zero combat fatalities in the Iraq war in contrast to the 150 plus British troops and 4800 Americans that died there.
In Vietnam, Korea in Afghanistan and most of all in Iraq, the US took more than their fair share of the casualties.
The US population is 15 times Australia, between these three wars the US has taken almost 70,00 kia whereas Austrlai suffered around 550, rounding up. These casualties are only 10% of the US based on population. The Australian casualties were very low proportionally, unlike World War 1 when Australian casualties were among the highest for any participant.
Other than World War 2 All Australian wars were Wars of Choice Acting as Imperial Auxiliaries.
Beyond the many wars for the sake of the alliance, there have been Australian military operations in East Timor and the Solomon Islands, I categorise East Timor as a peace keeping operation that was not aggressive in intent. War like incidents took place, If you call that a War it was an exception to the rule. It was not an act of aggression, they didn’t attack East Timor anymore than Russia attacked Crimea in March 2014. It was a show of force operation that was sanctioned by the UN and it did not lead to major violence. That is not to understate the risks to the soldiers stationed there, it just wasn’t a war in the negative sense and did not lead to a bloodbath but rather reduced the violence. If an operation reduces the violence in an area as that operation did, it is not a war in my opinion .
The Same Old Rhetoric but the Lesson Was Learned.
A century and many wars later, Australia’s World War 1 casualties still comprise well over 50^ of the total Australian military death toll. Australia remains a Janissary nation but the politicians who followed Hughes never showed the same callous indifference towards Australian lives, nothing like it. That is one thing that deserves gratitude, but it also shows what a maniac Hughes must have been to send ALMOST 10 PERCENT OF THE ENTIRE POPULATION (8.4%) in a war no one can explain even a century later that had no bearing on Australia’s vital interests. Billy Hughes, the British born Australian politician who sent all those men to die for nothing deserves to be remembered as quite simply the worst “Australian” politician who ever lived. Funnily enough he was British.
The fact that this man is greeted with the same reverence attended any other dead politician merely shows how supine and asleep we apparently remain.
Still the 40 soldiers killed in Afghanistan in an unwinnable war with ridiculous aims incited by an obvious and proven false flag attack that really had nothing to do with Afghanistan even by the Official story. The proponents of the war tried to say that terrorists trained in Afghanistan. It was true that MI and CIA maintained training bases for jihadists there, Osama bin Laden helped run some of their camps. But much of the training for 911 according to the Official story , took place in the USA, this is where the pilots trained, others supposedly took martial arts, so you might just as well invade America as Afghanistan, it was that silly. And as for the idea that a progressive social order can be imposed upon people by the force of arms and military occupation. It is pure stupidity. No one surely really believes that sending heavily armed men to occupy a nation and bombing it extensively from the air will have a moderating influence? No one could possibly be so silly to believe that could they?
As if you need to occupy a country for more than a decade in order to wipe out a couple of training camps that the US air force could destroy completely in around two minutes. I feel terrible for the soldiers that had to go through the ordeal, they are the real victims in this matter, not the people who sit at home. There is no point trying to lie and pretend that the war was a good idea or for a just cause, no matter how well intentioned the participants, when it wasn’t. It just wasn’t.
The Hard Lesson.
A security policy that is anchored in one alliance with one very powerful nation has many shortcomings and problems. It is not the fault of the American people that their nation has been seized and is under the control of a psychopathic crime syndicate, but it has happened, the success of the September 11th false flag massacre makes this fact inescapable. Until the US is liberated from these sinister forces, the alliance , which has overall been relatively cost free for Australia could become a poisonous thing. If the Washington warmongers decide to do something really mad like a major war with Russia or China, or even Iran, Australia must be a voice of moderation and sanity and we must never again throw our people away in the Empire’s Wars of choice.
The Bottom Line.
Although the casualties at least are minute compared to the World War 1 nightmare, the truth is the Australian military should only be used to defend the Australian nation and should only ever be deployed overseas on peace keeping operations such as East Timor and the Solomon Islands. If the Australian nation is to mature we must recognise that the only true security comes from independent means of defence that do not presume the assistance of any ally.
