VICTORIA'S POLITICAL CORRECTNESS & FREE
by Phillip D Butler
The imposition of politically correct legislation and the fundamental
importance of free speech has finally generated wider public interest
now that two Christian pastors have been found guilty - under the 'race-hate'
legislation - and will be fined and/or jailed unless they publicly apologise
for voicing their opinions on the Muslim religion.
The real intent behind the legislation is showing its ugly self. We
are going down the same path as Canada. In the land of "True North
and Free," the attack on free speech began in the 'heady days'
of Fabian Marxist/socialist Pierre Elliot Trudeau with the Canadian
version of 'Anti-Hate' legislation being foisted on the people.
But where will it end? The Herald Sun headlined on its front
page "Taxi Chat Gag", 25/06/05, that the latest attack is
on Melbourne's taxi drivers. They have been directed they are not allowed
to discuss political matters or wear or display anything that reflects
their religious background - or face the sack! Victoria is a "sorry"
state at the moment! George Orwell had it right in "1984"!
Victorians need reminding this draconian legislation
would not have got through the parliament - a minority Labor government
held power at the time with the support of two Independents - without
the backing of the Liberals and Nationals. Just to reinforce this fact,
remember the Libs/Nats also had control of the Upper House and assisted
in its passage through the Upper House!
Many thought when the Berlin Wall came down in Germany, the world had
got rid of the totalitarians. No, the lust for power and control lurks
in many a breast - we Victorians have the totalitarians roaming around
loose right now!

AMERICA - AND AUSTRALIA - TODAY
I am reminded of the emotional/cultural shock an elderly gentleman experienced
when he came face to face with the 'other' forces scrambling up the
ladder of power in his beloved city of Adelaide, South Australia. Comfortably
well off and socially secure in Adelaide's 'pecking order,' he, along
with many of his generation hadn't realised there was a 'coup' taking
place until it was too late. Just as the Bush camp referred to the conservative
Europeans as 'the old Europe,' in the same sense we could refer to this
gentleman (and the vast majority of Australians) as 'the old Adelaide'.
"No Job Is Safe"--A Patent Attorney
Reader Reports More Displacements
"Finally!" exclaimed our American correspondent, "Other
professionals are beginning to figure it out. I wonder how long it will
take for doctors, nurses and teachers to figure out that we are all
being replaced by imported foreigners. Professionals are being replaced
with imported 'visapukes'. Blue collar workers are being replaced by
'illegals' who walk across the borders.
This is a quiet war and we are being conquered without a shot fired,"
said her note attached to the following http://www.vdare.com/letters/tl_062405.htm
"I am a patent attorney. (Name withheld).
In reviewing some of the recent proposed rule changes in the weekly-published
Official Gazette [Provisions for Persons Granted Limited Recognition
To Prosecute Patent Applications and Other Miscellaneous Matters], I
noticed a proposed change to allow non-citizen, non-permanent resident
"patent practitioners" who are here under a work visa to prosecute
patent applications. Historically, only inventors or their registered
patent agents/attorneys have been recognized to do this.
My guess is that U.S. companies are importing non-citizen "patent
practitioners" under one of the infamous work visa programs, and
pressuring the Patent Office to amend its rules.
Anecdotally, a third of U.S. Patent Office examiners I encounter these
days seem to be foreign born, with heavy accents and exotic names (Asia
and Africa seem heavily represented).
I ran a quick review of my pending cases, and a surprising number appear
to be foreign (roughly 35% of my cases where examiners have been signed).
An increasing number of examiners seem to be foreign-born. This trend
has been ongoing for several years--maybe since the mid-nineties. No
job is safe."
WE BECOME SILENT
Exposing Danger of Free Trade & CODEX
That dynamic lady Eve Hillary wants all those concerned with the battle
to retain their right to choose their vitamin supplements, etc., to
watch (or purchase) a DVD documentary on just what CODEX is all about
- NOW! For those who have the necessary technology the documentary can
be viewed on her website: http://www.evehillary.org/WBS-Video.html
She writes: "Watch Kevin Miller's superbly done documentary "We
Become Silent" which exposes the immense dangers of so called "Free
Trade" and CODEX. Australians can draw parallels with regards to
WTO and Codex regulation. Even if the US health industry is regulated
differently (foods) it will not stop trade sanctions against Australia
with regards to changing our volumes and dosages from the "unsafe"
RDI's and RDA's to the new "safe" world standards.
"We Become Silent" is narrated by well
known British actress Dame Judi Dench. It has interviews with many numerous
health freedom activists including Julian Whitaker, MD; Scott Tips,
JD; Carolyn Dean, MD; Joe Bassett, John Hammell and many others. There
is footage from health freedom demonstrations all over the world beginning
with Dr Matthias Rath's demonstrations in Germany. Kevin Miller has
produced a very good video which is in the same genre as the movie "The
Corporation" except with regards to vitamins, minerals and supplements.
Kevin Miller won the gold medal at the NY Film Festival in 1994 for
"Let Truth Be the Bias". Kevin showed some of the footage
John Hammell shot inside the Codex meeting in Berlin in '98. John's
efforts to highlight Elizabeth Yetley's (FDA) clear intention of ignoring
US law and constitution, the will of congress and the will of the people
as she railroads the US towards harmonisation with Codex, resulted with
John being taken off the US Codex Delegation in 2000.
Please show this documentary to everyone you know: especially to sleeping
CEO's of vitamin companies in Australia who have been lied to on this
issue by the pharma dominated vitamin trade associations, ASMI and the
TGA. http://www.evehillary.org Time is of the essence."
PAN TO STAND TRIAL
Interestingly, alternative 'medicines' giant Pan Pharmaceuticals will
be arraigned to stand trial on 42 criminal charges after waiving its
right to a committal hearing. According to the report in The Australian

Goods Administration - the regulator that cancelled Pan's licence. We
are informed, "It rarely uses its powers under the TGA Act."
SLAVERY IS WRONG: LETTER TO THE EDITOR
Mr. J.M. sent the following letter to the Editor:
"O.T." June 24, 05 "Myths About Slavery," is a disgrace.
Slavery is wrong. Yet instead of saying so, you comment about spelling.
The "New Times Survey," June, 2005 has an attack on religious
sources, and a reply by Wallace Klinck.
Well, I know that the New Testament, (quoting from O.T.) says at Luke
4:18 that Jesus said he had been sent "to preach deliverance to
However, looking at the Concordances, we find that the NT seems to condone
slavery. The book of Philemon is supposedly St. Paul sending a slave
Onesimus back to his "owner" Philemon. In another book, the
Greek text tells slaves to "obey their masters." So, the NT
has two contradictory views on slavery. No supporter of the LoR could
lend "OT" of June 24 to any sensible reformer. SLAVERY IS
J.M. of Greenwood, W.A.
J.M's letter throws a spotlight on the "babel of voices" Christians
have to contend with these days as they struggle to understand just
what their Faith teaches and how it relates to their everyday lives.
There are at least two prominent groups that I can see: those who go
back to Tradition for their understanding and those who go straight
to the Bible for understanding - and there is a great gulf between the
two. What is not recognised by the second group is the two thousand
years of history, experience and development of human consciousness,
and conscience, with (hopefully) understanding.
Of course slavery is wrong. The article was never intended to defend
slavery as such but to highlight how the actions of previous generations
of Whites is now being used to load guilt upon Whites today - for ulterior
Christian equality: It was the Christian idea of the equality of human
souls before God which led little by little to the abolition of slavery.
But physical slavery is not the only type of slavery to be condemned.
That is why the League of Rights continually points to the other slaveries
of the mind, especially the slavery of Mammon. There are no physical
chains, no physical whips used and yet the whole world is in bondage,
slavery, to Mammon!
Canon Arthur Fellows writes in "The Foundations of Liberty":
What the New Testament speaks of is spiritual freedom - interior freedom.
Jesus Himself, although bound before Pilate, was the freest man in that
Pilate was in bondage to his own hates and fears,
the chief priests and other leaders of the Jews in bondage to their
preconceived idea of the Christ and to a desire to keep the peace at
All exterior freedoms flow on from this interior freedom."
Our British-Christian history reveals the working out of Christian principles
was, and is, a slow process. Slavery existed in NT times, but the Christian
conscience eventually came to see that slavery was wrong in principle,
and its institution conflicted with the Gospel ideal, and it was abolished.
But, what of the 'dumbing down' of our younger generations within the
education systems? Isn't that a form of slavery of the mind? And yet,
there are no chains, there are no physical whips - in fact it is against
the law to physically touch children. But it is a slavery of the mind
none the less.
There was a time when the Liberals proudly stated: "We believe
in the great human freedoms; to worship; to think; to speak; to choose,
to be ambitious, to acquire skill, to seek and earn reward." (1949
Statement of Beliefs.)
I contend they now violate every one of those fundamental beliefs!
As for the Labor Party, we can't expect anything from them. They are
a socialist/Marxist party who are now floundering because the Liberals
and Nationals are implementing the very agenda they planned. They are
in such bondage to their ideology, it is inconceivable, for them, to
consider anything different!
Yes J.M. SLAVERY IS WRONG! But don't limit your definition of slavery
to the physical body alone.
Thank you for having the concern to write; your letter was much appreciated.
THE PATH OF LEGAL WARFARE AND CHARLES ZENTAI
Hungarian-Australians, don't leave the defence
of Mr. Charles Zentai to the few Australian-born citizens who took up
the cause of Ukrainian-Australian Ivan Polyukhovic in the early 1990s.
I'm sure you followed the trials and tribulations of Hungarian-Canadian
Imre Finta, the first person in the Western World to be charged with
"war crimes". Come on, give your fellow-ex-patriot your support.
Canadian Kelti Zubko wrote of her husband's experiences (barrister Douglas
Christie) whilst defending Imre Finta in "The Path of Legal
Warfare". She revealed the disgraceful communist court system
operating in Hungary, and just what a farce the whole proceedings were.
What an eye-opener! Do you really believe Mr. Zentai will get any better
treatment than did Mr. Finta?
At the time Kelti wrote:
"The Canadian War Crimes trial, and acquittal of Hungarian-born
Imre Finta will, in retrospect, be seen as an outstanding landmark in
Western Civilisation's struggle to survive the challenge of those dark
forces which seek to destroy the value system upon which that Civilisation
It was the first time anywhere in the world that a jury of ordinary
men and women had sat in judgment upon war crimes of the Second World
War. Nuremberg was judged by judges from the victor nations only, and
from them there was no appeal
Before the Finta case, the laws never had to be considered by ordinary
people without political appointments. In this sense, it is the judgment
of history upon the Nuremberg process, and its denial of obedience to
The jurors' judgment reflected common sense rather than political considerations
Imre Finta's jury came back on the 25th day of May, 1990, after about
five hours deliberation. Stephanie Reilander, the foreman of the jury,
said "Not Guilty' eight times in a loud clear voice. The Finta
case demonstrated that a careful examination of a survivor's testimony
reveals a wealth of contradictions casting serious doubt on the whole
story. That is why the emotional forum of dramatic monologues in high
schools is much more effective at communicating belief than the form
of cross examination and analysis
The state assisted the prosecution:
In Israel or in Hungary, the state simply assisted the prosecution for
years before the trial. They were not obliged to assist the defence
at all by the agreement negotiated with Canada by which access to Archives
and to all records was assured. The Canadian government got access to
the International Tracing Service at Arolsen where all concentration
camp records of the Red Cross are kept. This was denied to the defence
UNDER THE RED STAR
Barrister Douglas Christie recorded his experiences:
"One of the most frightening experiences I as a Canadian have ever
had, was to watch Canadian legal proceedings carried out underneath
the communist red star, in a courtroom that was the scene of many so-called
trials (including the notorious People's Courts) both after World War
II and the 1956 Uprising that were a mockery of Anglo-Saxon principles
of fundamental justice we Canadians think we enjoy.
Beside the Canadian judge sat a Hungarian judge, and according to the
order for the commission granted by Ontario Supreme Court, the commission
would be conducted according to Canadian rules of evidence, however
it would have to comply with Hungarian public policy and legal order.
The ramifications of this are evident when you consider that under Hungarian
· The judge acts as sole inquisitor and there is no such thing
as the right of cross-examination for the defence. One wonders what
the purpose of defence lawyers in Hungary really is.
· In Hungary, a lawyer is not allowed to 'insult' a witness,
for example by putting to him or her that he/she is lying.
· Under Hungarian law, bail is nonexistent.
· Under Hungarian law, witnesses are only summoned for one day,
and cannot be forced to attend beyond that day, even if defence counsel
hasn't completed cross-examination!
· The adversarial system is unheard of in Hungarian courts.Given
these few aspects of the experience in Hungary, as well as the fact
that the defence had not been given access to essential Hungarian records
relating to that period of history, a great deal of strain was present
throughout the entire five weeks (that he was in Hungary

SPEAKING FREELY - OIL AND FOOD
Speaking Freely is an Asia Times Online feature
that allows guest writers to have their say. <http://www.atimes.com/>
A new security challenge by Danielle Murray:
From farm to plate, the modern food system relies heavily on cheap oil.
Threats to our oil supply are also threats to our food supply. As food
undergoes more processing and travels farther, the food system consumes
ever more energy each year. The US food system uses over 10 quadrillion
Btu (10,551 quadrillion Joules) of energy each year, as much as France's
total annual energy consumption. Growing food accounts for only one-fifth
of this. The other four-fifths is used to move, process, package, sell,
and store food after it leaves the farm. Some 28% of energy used in agriculture
goes to fertilizer manufacturing, 7% goes to irrigation, and 34% is consumed
as diesel and gasoline by farm vehicles used to plant, till, and harvest
crops. The rest goes to pesticide production, grain drying, and facility
MORE ABOUT THE MICHAEL GROUP'S INITIATIVE
from Victor Bridger
Victor Bridger of the Australasian Social Credit School of Studies has
sent out the following communiqué aimed at those following the
ground-breaking work of the Pilgrims of St. Michael in countries such
as Madagascar and the Philippines.
"Please note that the work being done by
François di Siebenthal in the Philippines and Madagascar is not
connected with the LETS operation. What François is attempting
to do is educate the locals how to handle their affairs. The scheme
he has introduced is not Social Credit but it is a step he has taken
to broaden their knowledge on how to conduct a business and run a simple
bank. They are not "Banks" in the normal sense but his approach
is to make the people aware of how a bank operates and he has them doing
simple things to gradually increase their knowledge.
"I (also) have a message from Therese Tardiff
from the Pilgrims of St. Michael stating they are not connected with
LETS in any way. A response from François to my question re operating
a LETS programme indicates that there is no connection. Many years ago
a Mr. John Turmell was telling the world that LETS was Social Credit.
He was also telling the world that he knew better than Douglas what
was Social Credit.
WHERE ARE ALL THE 'ANTI-APARTHEID' 'DO-GOODERS'
Jan Lamprecht, the writer of the following article
was born and raised in Zimbabwe, then called Rhodesia, during the "Bush
War", which resulted in Robert Mugabe coming to power. Jan was
educated in Harare, the capital of the country, before leaving for South
Africa, where he spent some time in the Navy. His book, "Government
by Deception" was about African politics and related to Zimbabwe
and the effects Mugabe's policies may have on other countries. He publishes
a popular, highly "politically-incorrect" web site AfricanCrisis.org/
"Just as Eddie Cross of the opposition MDC
predicted a short while back, Zimbabwe President Robert Mugabe has wiped
out homes, and even bulldozed grocery stores - in mid-winter. Eddie
Cross estimated two million Blacks will become homeless as a result
of the dictator's actions. The UN estimates that this campaign, which
has taken only 1 month, has already resulted in 1.5 million Blacks losing
their homes. As unbelievable as this may sound, at the time when Zimbabwe
needs to import 1.2 million tons of food to support its population,
Mugabe has banned people from growing food in their own yards in urban
areas to feed their own families. It appears to me that Mr. Mugabe wants
to be in complete control of the food supply so that he can starve people
The people are struggling to get food and stand for hours on end in
food queues. The people are just trying to feed themselves in a country
which has been on the verge of famine for years, and millions would
already starve to death were it not for food from the UN or (secretly)
from South Africa. They are, at best, just managing to survive.
Government by Deception
In my book, Government by Deception, I wrote about the need for
socialist governments to create a dependency on politicians. They work
hard, as they try to control the populace, to find ways of making the
people depend on them for everything, including food. So far, only the
United States criticized Mugabe's action. South Africa has not only
kept quiet, but actually supported the regime, both secretly and openly.
Where is 'THE WORLD' now?
Mugabe has said he will allow a UN inspection. But the Useless Nations
- as the UN really should be called - will probably do little or even
nothing. What is happening is despicable. South Africa's Apartheid regime
was never even 1/100th as evil as Mugabe's dictatorship. What is happening
there is unprecedented in southern African history. And yet, the world
has not seen the worst of Mugabe. If he is backed into a corner, this
man will not just make millions homeless - he will kill millions.
He wiped out 20,000 to 30,000 people belonging to the minority Matabele
tribe in 1985 when our entire villages were destroyed. They were throwing
Black people down wells. An old school friend of mine (see TheBeardedMan
Blog spot) was a Policeman in Zimbabwe and had the opportunity to see
some of the aftermath of Mugabe's mass murder in the 1980's. Mugabe
is capable of murdering not merely tens or hundreds of thousands - he
is a murderer on the scale of Adolph Hitler, Joseph Stalin and Pol Pot.
This is the work of a megalomaniac who is punishing those who voted
against him in past elections. I find it incomprehensible that no major
country in the world will sponsor a war against this complete maniac
of a man. Not even Saddam Hussein has done anything close to the evil
that this man has gotten away with. The Black African states are refusing
to deal with Robert Mugabe, and some even admire him. They will never
condemn him - even if he slaughters millions of his own people.
The Chinese-sponsored Communist
And the British talk, but never act. The British Bulldog is toothless.
Yet, the British were the ones who strong-armed Zimbabwe's first democratically
elected, pro-Western Black Prime Minister, Bishop Abel Muzorewa into
handing over to this Chinese-sponsored Communist cretin - Mugabe - who
used intimidation to win his first election back in 1980. He has cheated
in several elections ever since. He clothes himself in a weak charade
of so-called "democracy" - but he is, and has almost always
been, an outright Dictator.
So where are the British now to take responsibility for this maniac
whom they helped to get in power? I haven't seen bombers flying over
Zimbabwe, Naval forces in the Mozambique channel or the SAS sneaking
into southern Africa, as happened during the era of Ian Smith's rule.
In the 1960's, when Rhodesia issued the Universal
Declaration of Independence, the British sent the Royal Navy to hunt
down tankers bringing oil to Rhodesia. The UN declared Rhodesia a "threat
to world peace" and the whole world immediately declared "comprehensive
sanctions" on 250,000 of White people, who were trying to stand
in the gap, trying to prevent absolute vicious dictators like Mugabe
from bringing that country down to where it is now. White people were
allegedly the vicious criminals which the world could not wait to kick
But no destruction ever took place in Rhodesia.
Rhodesia grew amazingly fast, despite total and complete world sanctions.
Rhodesians, White and Black, never went hungry despite comprehensive
world sanctions. Rhodesia had to export its beef and other products
illegally, but both Blacks and Whites had food. They had more work too.
Things were so much better back then - but everyone attacked the government
of Ian Smith. And now? Mugabe is laying waste to the country and has
been bringing complete ruin to it for the past 5 years. Yet, the world
Sanctions were employed only against White people
in Rhodesia and South Africa - but when a Black Megalomaniac Dictator
commits crimes ten thousand times worse than any White regime ever did,
we hear only silence. Politically Correct hypocrites only see evil among
Whites, but a Black man can do anything he wants, even to other Blacks.
There is no evil too great - as long as you are Black."
Mr. Lampret would find Ivor Benson's books on
Southern Africa very enlightening. Ivor Benson, as a freelance journalist
he traveled round Africa during the Macmillan's "winds of change"
which swept the African continent, and wrote of what he saw happening.
He saw "the white hand in the black glove" manipulating and
directing events behind the scenes.
Ivor Benson's books, such as "The Truth Out of Africa,"
are available from League Book Services.

"Confessions of an Economic Hit Man,"
by John Perkins: The inside story of how America turned from a respected
republic into a feared empire. "Economic hit men," John Perkins
writes, "are highly paid professionals who cheat countries around
the globe out of trillions of dollars. Their tools include fraudulent
financial reports, rigged elections, payoffs, extortion, sex and murder."
John Perkins should know - he was an economic hit man. His job was to
convince countries that are strategically important to the U.S. - from
Indonesia to Panama - to accept enormous loans for infrastructure development,
and to make sure that the lucrative profits were contracted to the U.S.
corporations. Saddled with huge debts these countries came under the
control of the United States government, World Bank and other U.S. dominated
aid agencies that acted like loan sharks. This extraordinary real-life
tale exposes international intrigue, corruption, and little-known government
and corporate activities that have dire consequences for American democracy
and the world. Price: $52.95 posted.
"The Church and Farming," by
Rev. Denis Fahey, C.S.S.p, D.D., D.Ph., BA. Written by Father Denis
Fahey this book is particularly important at this time, as the rural
sector struggles to survive. Father Fahey brings together the relationship
between the spiritual and practical applications of living with and
working the soil for the betterment of mankind, in harmony with God's
laws. It touches on all aspects of rural life and economics... It cannot
be too often repeated how much the work of the land generates physical
and moral health, for nothing does more to brace the system than this
beneficent contact with nature which proceeds directly from the hand
of the Creator. The land is not a betrayer, it is our salvation. An
essential back to basics book available from all League Book Services.
