Race Commissioner:” Guilty Until Proven Guilty by Ian Wilson LL.B.

When I say cartoonist Bill Leak’s cartoon about an Aboriginal police officer approaching an Aboriginal father about his delinquent son’s behaviour, and the father giving a delinquent response, I knew that many would find the cartoon offensive.

Although I am a free speech advocate, I do not believe that such comments are particularly helpful, merely getting a chuckle out of a terrible situation where there is genuine human misery. Such comments do not help, although peole should be free to make them. But, then, I am a Christian.

The Great Same-Sex Plebiscite ruse by Mrs. Vera West

We know that the high court of Australia, has ruled that the definition of “marriage” in the Constitution is such that it embraces same-sex unions. This was done through using a “living” method of constitutional interpretation, saying that words should not be defined as the Founders used them, but as, well, modern progressives use them. This is a handy dandy way of making the Constitution mean anything that progressives want.

Perhaps you hope that the same sex marriage agenda may be defeated in the plebiscite, and will then go away? Think again!

China and the Grid by James Reed

There has been weeping and gnashing of teeth (Matthew 8:12) in the media over Scott Morrison’s decision to reject two Chinese bids for majority control of NSW’s electricity assets, on national security grounds. This is seen as pulling the plug on china, a retreat from our “Chinese future,” and numerous other nauseous phrases.

But the decision is right, and a good start in regaining some sense of national identity and sanity from the insane cult of globalism. In a nut shell, China and no other Asian nation would even dream of allowing Australia to own its vital infrastructure, such as electricity assets.

Pride: The Cause of Many a Fall by Mrs Vera West

Pride is said to come before a fall. But in actual fact pride is often the cause of a fall, what is called hubris. Research published in the journal Social Cognitive and Affective Neuroscience, studied the brain activity of 308 people using MRI scanning. The subjects evaluated their own performance in a cognitive test.

People who were confident about their performance in the test showed higher levels of brain activity in those areas of the brain normally associated with reward processing. That would be all well and good, except for one fact; those over-confident people actually got poorer test results than more modest subjects. Over-confidence led to an inflation of these people’s abilities, and a delusion about their capacity to succeed.

America’s Race War: A Product of the New World Order by Chris Knight


The headline from Natural News.com, proclaims that a full-on race war is in motion in America. Mike Adams does not mince words: “it is now obvious that American society is breaking down into social chaos characterized by racially motivated black-on-white mob violence. As much as I have repeatedly called for peace and unity among all citizens to realize the TRUE enemy is a corrupt, criminal government, there are still sectors of society where so-called "Black Lives Matter" rioters have become de facto Black Power terrorists who are deliberately hunting down and targeting white people for beatdowns and murder.”

The Left and the Right and the Truth by Betty Luks

Ref: http://www.onlineopinion.com.au/view.asp?article=18449

Mr. Aitkin’s OnLine Opinion.com.au article (15 August 2016) which prompted his  “Left and Right in Australian Politics" discussion reminded me of Geoffrey Dobbs’ article titled, “The Left and the Right and the Truth” written many years ago.

To the Editor

Tony Abbott has bemoaned the fact that 'our Parliament prefers to tolerate over-the-top prosecutions than to upset thin-skinned activists' (The Age - 'Reflective Abbott reopens racial hate-speech debate', 13/8). Also regrettable is the lack of concern in ordinary, thoughtful Australians over the fact that honourable and informed dissidents can be wrongfully attacked under the present law. This in turn is perhaps an aspect of a greater problem here: the growing selfishness of individuals, which seems clearly linked to the diminution of religious observance.

Protecting disadvantaged persons from malicious abuse can be achieved without infringement of free speech. However, another roadblock to reform is the fear of both major political parties that they will lose key votes from minority groups if they defend free speech and that this could cause them to lose an election. The remedy to this situation is more outspokenness from citizens generally to defend dissident speech.NJ, Belgrave Victoria

THE CENSUS AND THE BUREAUCRATS

http://www.smh.com.au/federal-politics/political-news/code-red-how-the-bureau-of-statistics-bungled-the-2016-census-20160811-gqqpxf.html

Not only do all Australians know about the Census disaster we would think: so does the rest of the world!  But what we especially noted was taken from the Sydney Morning Herald: Peter Martin “A former head of the ABS described the grab for names as the “without doubt, the most significant invasion of privacy ever perpetrated by the ABS” – like an “Australian Card”.   Directed to actually conduct the census, and keen to extract some value from it, (David) Kalisch and his team (had) revived an idea categorically ruled out by his predecessor. Brian Pink had said no to retaining names...Names had always been retained for a short time in order to eliminate duplicates and establish the relationship between household members, but destroyed after checks, usually well before 18 months.  Appearing before the Senate economics committee...Kalisch said nothing about the plan to retain names and addresses. He made a short statement to "update the committee about our census preparations". Things were "on track" and momentum was building. A few months earlier he had told the committee things were coming along "beautifully".  ...Information from the census on ethnic or religious backgrounds could be linked to information from the immunisation register to work out what type of families on what types of incomes were the least likely to immunise.   Criminal records could be linked to census records, if permission were given, to see what sort of Australians were convicted of what sort of crimes…”

THE CULTIVATION OF HISTORY by Hewlett Edwards - The Fig Tree 1954

There is a saying among the south sea islanders: Know the roots and you will know the tree. Know the tree and behold! It will answer to your cultivation.

History is the endless record of experiments; a series that cannot be broken and of which there is never complete specification nor adequate separation from a multiplicity of similar operations. The movement of events cannot be arrested for examination and analysis, history shows and must show approximation upon approximation. Within itself each event appears to be complete and completed, it cannot be undone; but, as a part of a series which is one whole, what is so indeterminate as an isolated event? It seems conclusive, yet it is always moving on to fresh conclusions.

Identity Politics and Australia by Chris Knight

Although I seldom agree with The Australian's "editor-at-large", Paul Kelly, his article "Race, Gender: The Risk of Identity Politics" (The W.E. Australian, August 6-7, 2016, p.15), raises issues that conservatives have become too afraid to address. In fact Kelly does talk about the question of "weakness":

"This movement proves the ideological creativity of the Left, the manipulative power of human rights law and the perversion of the idea of justice - seen in this country in Section 18 C of the Racial Discrimination Act where individuals can (initiate) legal action because they are "offended" by others".

Keeping the Australian Public Out: Race Inquiry by Ian Wilson LL.B.

 The Human Rights Commission is seeking to have the public prevented from commenting on an inquiry into their handling of the University student race-hate case. (The Australian, August 8, 2016, p.5) The commission submitted that it would not be appropriate to consider submissions from the public.

That, I think, is the best argument which one can give for the dissolving of the Human Rights Commission.

The Rules of the Universe Transcend Human Thinking by Betty Luks

My ego received some rather large dents when a couple of loyal readers contacted the editor complaining OnTarget for that week was ‘boring’.  After knocking a few of the dents out and recovering some semblance of equilibrium I thought a good deal about the matter and thought that I failed to get my message across as was intended.  So here goes… again.The response is based upon an article which appeared in the OT Christmass issue of December 2004.  http://alor.org/Volume40/Vol40No49.htm

In “Releasing Reality” Eric Butler writes: “One of the most illuminating statements made by C.H. Douglas, one which reveals his proper humility in the search for Truth, was that the rules of the Universe transcend human thinking, and that if the individual wished to live in a world of harmony, he should make every endeavour to discover those rules and obey them.” It comes as a bit of a shock when one realises that at the last judgement Christ will judge us, not by our great exploits, not by our great ‘faith’ or ‘belief,’ not even for the number of convert ‘scalps’ we have ‘chalked up’, -- but by how we have treated our fellow man: “I was hungry and you fed me; thirsty and you gave me drink; a stranger and you took me in; in prison and you visited me… Inasmuch as you did it unto one of the least of my brethren you did it unto Me.” Matthew 25.37. One could say that has always been God’s purpose and policy for the ‘fruits of the earth’. His provisions are there to feed and clothe and house mankind. Put simply they are a means to sustain and maintain Life.

THE CENSUS DEBACLE

Andrew Bolt's Blog:  "This is a political disaster. True, the buck should stop with the Australian Bureau of Statistics, and the Turnbull Government is not directly involved in the managed of this. Yet it will wear the political responsibility, and the price will be high."

Seems to me there are just too many bureaucrats running these systems.  Lots of theories but not much practical experience. Reminds me of C.H. Douglas's comments on the International Bankers who think they can run the whole world: Just because they deal in huge numbers within the banking system - they think they have the expertise to direct and run the whole world's other systems. Reminds me of the joke about God giving this fellow permission to run the natural world for a year.  The fellow got everything right - except accounting for the wind. Without the wind blowing the pollen and pollinating the flowers the trees did not bear fruit.  And guess what - no food to eat!

IT PAYS TO CHECK THE FACTS

Readers can be forgiven for mistaking Lady Susan Renouf with Lady Michele Renouf. It was in July of this year that socialite Lady Susan Renouf died of ovarian cancer at the age of 74 years. If one followed only the history/politics columns of the mainstream newspapers, one could be forgiven for mistaking this Lady Renouf with the second Lady Renouf known to Holocaust revisionists as a defender of free speech.

According to Wikipedia: Susan, Lady Renouf : Born Susan Rossiter, 15 July 1942, Died 15 July 2016 (aged 74).Her spouses were: Andrew Peacock (1963-1978, 3 children) Robert Sangster (1978-1985) Frank Renouf (1985-1998?, divorced)…

Politicians Only Yield to Pressure

Australian people are having their debates and discussions stifled by the threat from the 'NSW Civil and Administrative Tribunal for Homosexual Vilification' and the 'Racial Discrimination Act Section 18c' on several important political issues that will affect many generations to come: 'national security', 'immigration', the 'definition of marriage' and 'Aboriginal recognition in the constitution'. Paul Coleman in his book 'Censored: How European "Hate Speech" Laws are Threatening Freedom of Speech' shows the threat to free speech is not limited to locally grown authoritarians, but all the way up the halls of power.

Several important articles in the media report the problem of stifled debate.
