Australia Parliament to comply with UN World Government 17 Goals September 25-27

MENU for Official Documents September 25-27 Agenda

Prime Minister Tony Abbott

If you are surprised that your parliament is handing over Australia to the United Nations “Agenda21” that will introduce a world government, then you need to be brought up to speed.

Did you know that the UN is planning to launch a “new universal agenda” for humanity in September 2015? That phrase does not come from me – it is actually right in the very first paragraph of the official document that every UN member nation will formally approve at a conference later this month. The entire planet is going to be committing to work toward 17 sustainable development goals and 169 specific sustainable development targets, and yet there has been almost a total media blackout about this here in the United States. The UN document promises that this plan will “transform our world for the better by 2030“, and yet very few Australians have even heard of the 2030 Agenda at this point. Instead, most of us seem to be totally obsessed with the latest celebrity gossip or the latest nasty insults that our puppet politicians have been throwing around at one another. When will people finally start waking up?

Both Liberal and Labor parties are totally compliant with “Agenda21” and have it as a hidden agenda since 1990, keeping you out of the loop.

The United Nations is the worlds most proven inefficient organisation, a facade working for international corporations and bankers to launder themselves as humanitarian while harvesting massive funding and power-base footing ready for Agenda21 opening the flood gate to dominate under one government they already preside over.

We have compiled some information for you with the current ““Agenda21” foot holding that will make George Orwell’s 1984 fiction novel become reality.

From the official UN document these quotes are disturbing:

You need to be concerned

We, the Heads of State and Government and High Representatives, meeting at the United Nations Headquarters in New York from 25-27 September 2015 as the Organization celebrates its seventieth anniversary, have decided today on new global Sustainable Development Goals.

Now you really need to be VERY concerned

On behalf of the peoples we serve, we have adopted a historic decision on a comprehensive, far-reaching and people-centred set of universal and transformative Goals and targets. We commit ourselves to working tirelessly for the full implementation of this Agenda by 2030. We recognize that eradicating poverty in all its forms and dimensions, including extreme poverty, is the greatest global challenge and an indispensable requirement for sustainable development. We are committed to achieving sustainable development in its three dimensions – economic, social and environmental – in a balanced and integrated manner. We will also build upon the achievements of the Millennium Development Goals and seek to address their unfinished business.

This is nothing less than a global government takeover of every nation across the planet. The “goals” of this document are nothing more than code words for a corporate-government fascist agenda that will imprison humanity in a devastating cycle of poverty while enriching the world’s most powerful globalist corporations like Monsanto and DuPont for starters.

Now the future of Australia and future generations are to be handed to the United Nations … DO SOMETHING … TODAY ! ! ”

Debt Summit calls for government moratorium on bank foreclosures

From cairnsnews.org

A meeting of more than 300 cattle producers at Charters Towers has called on the federal government to create the Australian Development and Reconstruction Board and place a moratorium on bank foreclosures before the State’s cattle industry completely collapsed.

Called by the Member for Dalrymple, Shane Knuth the crisis meeting followed on from a similar meeting held by the Member for Mt Isa, Robbie Katter at Winton last year.

Producers demanded the federal and state governments act immediately to introduce the ADRB, modelled on the Rural Reconstruction Board of 30 years ago which was designed to absorb the “toxic” trading bank interest debt that has engulfed primary industries and to issue low interest development funds for primary producers and small business.

More than 20 resolutions were passed unanimously by the gathering of desperate and often distraught cattle producers.

“While an unprecedented 80 per cent of the state is reeling under a drought declaration, producers heard how social media and 60 Minutes superstar Charlie Phillott, 81, of Winton, beat the ANZ Bank and had his property returned with a substantial settlement“.

Mr Phillott’s plight has been closely monitored by the 60 Minutes television show and scored an Australian record 3.5 million hits on Toowoomba veterinarian David Pascoe’s social media site.

He urged producers to stick together when fighting questionable behaviour by the banks.

He said he had never missed a repayment but when the bank restructured his loan he was unable to manage and was eventually put off his Winton property after the bank took it over.

“All of us here owe a great deal of gratitude to Bob Katter for he saw my position and stood by me for two years ,” Mr Phillott said.

Primary Industries Minister Bill Byrne when addressing the meeting started an uproar when he said the State Government would not be building more dams because there was “no business return” from farming.

Charters Towers cattleman Mick Pemble attacked the Minister asking why he could not build dams, and “…do what everybody else in this room does and borrow the bloody money!”

“If I could make it rain I would, but our resources are finite and we are working on what can be done in the circumstances,” Mr Byrne said.

“There are amendments before Parliament and our policy is that water is critical to agriculture but the government capacity to fund such a project is limited.

“If you build dams in the city or for mining you get capital back but for agriculture you do not get capital back.

He said federal money or private investment would be needed to build dams.

Meeting chairman Shane Knuth said he was aware of highly questionable behaviour by bank-appointed receivers that had caused a lot of grief to families through no fault of their own.

He said there were many hundreds of northern producers in financial difficulties and the local industry could collapse unless the bank debt issue was resolved.

“I know some of you want to speak, and I am aware that confidentiality agreements stop you from telling us about what the receivers have done to you, but everyone is behind you and we must stop the foreclosures,” Mr Knuth said.

Burdekin farmer Max Menzell asked the Minister why police were involved when foreclosures took place adding that they should not be used by the banks and receivers as debt collectors because foreclosures were a civil matter.

The Minister strongly defended the use of police stating categorically: “That is the law.”

Mr Knuth said more meetings and what actions should be taken would be called unless the government brought the banks into line and stopped foreclosures immediately.

Mr Phillott said the northern grazing industry and businesses owed Bob Katter a great deal of gratitude for giving producers a voice in dealing with banks and foreclosures.

Humpty Dumpty will have a great fall If the High Court files this application to stop bankruptcy

When will the first shots be fired by the oppressed citizenry

A former police prosecutor has attempted to file an application in the High Court of Australia against his bankruptcy proceeding initiated by Mackay City Council. If filed it will bring down the entire bogus system of corporate government operating in Australia.

So far the Registrar, Deborah Carslund, has refused to file it, knowing the consequences would collapse the unlawful corporate system.

David Walter, of Herberton, (pictured)who is a passionate Constitutional analyst, gave his evidence by phone to a Federal Court Circuit hearing in Brisbane on February 14.

The presiding Judge, Angelo Vasta, said in spite of the pleadings by Mr Walter detailing the unlawful system of government, he was bound by the Bankruptcy Act 1966, that coincidentally was the year of the introduction of decimal currency, that Mr Walter contends has no value anywhere in the world.

Judge Vasta upheld the order of the lower court to bankrupt Mr Walter, in spite of his admiration for the judge’s concordance with his argument.

He told Judge Vasta by telephone hook-up that in light of careful manipulations and entrapment by counsel Mr Houghton, instructed by King and Co for the Mackay City Council to entice him into the court, he could not enter a courtroom in Queensland or he faced two year’s incarceration as a result.

Judge Vasta did not know about the defendant’s dilemma, brought about by the former tenacious prosecutor’s appearances in Queensland courtrooms over a decade helping land owners who had been crushed by former Premier Beattie’s unlawful Vegetation Management Act and other corporate policies.

The Bar Association with its normal vindictive attitude towards any person who steps outside of the precious but unlawful legal boundaries jealously protected by the State’s legal system, was able to get an order from one of its compliant Justices to have David Walter banned from court rooms or face two years jail.

Such is the threat posed by David Walter to the cosy relationship between the political party government of the day, all levels of the judiciary, the banks, the Bar Association and the Law Society.

Mr Walter has asked readers to send this article to every email address they have in their address book.

 

An unholy alliance of LJ Hooker, the Liberal National Party and GB Investments

What’s the Price Of A Rambo Hooker

by

 Robert J Lee of Cairns News 

Prospective buyers of a 160 acre Atherton farm listed for auction on March 28, have been warned by a bank watch group that any sale is “buyer beware”.

Sydney- based SafeBank spokesman Peter Adler said the Atherton case was one of the worst examples of financial fraud the group had seen.

“Our legal team has perused the file relating to the impending auction of the property and has found the forced sale to be unlawful, due in part to the financiers refusal to provide any substantiating documentation,” Mr Adler said.

“How a court has overlooked this basic accounting requirement is remarkable.”

A plight of human tragedy unfolds

Kevin Ramke

Kevin (Rambo) Ramke

When a dodgy real estate agent hops into bed with peccant financiers to scam farms from desperate landowners a legal remedy is expensive and if you reside in Queensland, impossible to achieve.

There is a woeful tale of illegal financial dealings, fraud, real estate malpractice and human tragedy reverberating around the Far Northern town of Atherton.

The main player is, not surprisingly, the Dalrymple electorate Chairman of the Liberal National Party and L.J Hooker franchisee Kevin (Rambo) Ramke, who has made it his life’s mission to undermine and asset-strip a Tablelands’ pioneering family.

ljhooker-office

L. J Hooker Atherton office

The saga began six years ago when Upper Barron dairy farmers Ron and Sue Ford sought alternative finance after the price of milk fell below sustainable levels and they were left high and dry by their trading bank.

Private financial company and payday lenders, G B Investments of Adelaide took up the Ford’s loan after the National Australia Bank refused to extend more credit on their dairy business.

Over a lifetime the Fords have accumulated a number of adjoining properties and other small farms left to Ron, 65, by his father, providing ample security for another loan until two smaller properties were sold.

Had these two separate blocks been sold the debt would have been paid.

In 2007 the rural property market on the Tablelands collapsed and their loan to property value ratio was significantly affected. The two properties failed to sell at auction, then Hookers best and not-so-brightest, Rambo, stepped into action, selling the remaining three properties for whatever price he could get. They eventually discovered one block was sold for $150,000 under market value.

The Fords maintain that they had never given Ramke a mandatory, signed ‘authority to sell’ agreement for a real estate agent, authorising him to market any property on their behalf.

The errant agent sold six of their properties, over the past five years, taking commission each time.

How he was able to sell them remains a quirk of the law. When Ramke first learnt the Fords were in trouble with their new lenders, he contacted the company without the Ford’s permission or knowledge, claiming he had a buyer for one of the properties. The properties failed to sell privately, according to the Fords because Ramke had no buyer. He then advertised them at auction, without the Ford’s authority.

Sue Ford said the first thing she knew about the impending auction sale was when she saw her property advertised in the local newspaper.

Initially G B Investments sought an order in the Cairns District Court to sell the main property to cover the alleged debt. An order was granted to sell the farm that had the dairy. It was subsequently sold and Mrs Ford maintains the sale should have covered the debt.

Here’s the crunch. Neither the Fords nor their lawyers have ever been presented with a statement of account from any property sale showing how much they actually owed or if in fact the alleged $1.8m debt had been discharged.

G B Investments has simply sold each property using the one and only order ever granted by a court for the initial sale. The Fords do not know how much the properties made at private sale or how much they allegedly owe the company.

They have never signed a contract of sale.

G B Investments had never been granted mortgagee in possession from any court to sell any property.

In spite of repeated requests to G B Investments from the Ford’s solicitors and from personal approaches, at no time have the desperate landowners been given a statement of account.

In February the Fords took their plight to the Supreme Court in Brisbane expecting justice for what legal opinion said was a strong case.

They had no chance in Queensland as many other bank litigants have discovered, especially when they have been allocated the allegedly arrogant and incompetent Judge Deborah Mullins.

She threw the case out, much to the chagrin and despair of the Fords. Their last vestige of self-esteem, independence and their home has been cast aside by a nefarious and notorious legal system where only banks can win.

Their legal fees topped $60,000.

The case preparation was meticulous. Mrs Ford had kept a copy of the scant paperwork relevant to the sales and all dealings with the company; the only missing piece of the jigsaw was a statement from the financiers showing how much was allegedly owed.

Their 160 acre retirement home and land that director John Barry told Mrs Ford “would never be sold” has been advertised for auction by Hookers on March 28.

Directors of G B Investments, Bob Holyoak, Albanian John Barry and similarly Kevin Ramke, have refused to answer emails from Cairns News requesting their comments.

Mrs Ford said the activities of GB Investments and L J Hooker would be tabled next week in Federal Parliament and then State Parliament in its first sittings.

You Can Bank On Bob

KATTER’S AUSTRALIAN PARTY TO LAUNCH STATE BANK!

profile-pic-bob-katterPresident of Katter’s Australian Party and candidate for Gympie Shane Paulger today unveiled KAP’s major policy announcement  – The Queensland Industry Development Bank (Q.I.D.B).

Speaking with Federal member for Kennedy Bob Katter in Gympie, Mr Paulger stated the Q.I.D.B is a long overdue and vital initiative for rural and regional communities.

The Katter’s Australian Party intends to transition the existing Queensland Rural Adjustment  Authority (QRAA) into the Q.I.D.B to provide suitably tailored funds and capital arrangements for the sustainability and development of at risk Queenslanders.

Through the Q.I.D.B regional businesses, land owners and local industries will have access to much needed finance, loaning at concessional government set rates.

“I think years of neglect and failed ideology has lead us to the situation today, where many small businesses and farms can’t get access to acceptable and reliable finance,”  Mr Paulger said.

Currently up to $650,000 is available through the QRAA via sustainability loans, however this amount of money is very short of the mark required by today’s agricultural industry, with much of the debt running into the millions.

“Every day we see farmers thrown off their land in droves, clearly rural debt and stagnation has to be addressed,” Mr Paulger said.

The KAP Party President suggested the loans should be based on a 20- 25 year term to allow the establishment of the industry.

“There is undeniable evidence that little of the funding is being taken up by the farming community because of the short term loans, this clearly demonstrates the current structure is not working,” Mr Paulger said.

“Young farmers and the businesses who depend on that industry need a hand up not a hand out to get a start, and transition into ownership of farms,” “We believe the Q.I.D.B will go onto benefit both struggling individuals, businesses and communities with a strong commitment to the rural industry,” he said.

Federal KAP Leader and Member for Kennedy Bob Katter threw his support behind Shane Paulger and said he was ‘dead right’ when he said that every reconstruction bank in Australia had negligible defaulters and was even making money.

“The bitter irony is that we’re not asking for any money, we never have. We’ve asked for a reconstruction of our debt. We want a State Bank to take over the bad debt, to write off a percentage of the debt and loan it back to farmers at around the mark of two per cent interest.

“In that case over 90% of those at risk, being the farmers and the numerous rural businesses that depend on them, will come through and move onto normal commercial rates over the next 3-4 years,” Mr Katter said.

A WAKEUP OPEN LETTER TO THE AUSTRALIAN PEOPLE

Liberal, Labor, the Murdoch media, their mates the banks and foreign mining companies should be banned from Australia. Withdraw your savings(if you have any) and place your money in credit unions. Never again vote for the ALP or LNP. Do not buy News Ltd newspapers.

Australia I urge you to share this letter written by Dr David Pascoe, which has over a million hits so far. Public outcry is the only way to make the Federal Government act on the massive rural debt issue that is about to bring down the agricultural industry in Australia. We need to stop the foreclosures now! We need to introduce an Australian Reconstruction and Development Board to take over and re-finance farmers’ debt. Otherwise we face a grim future where we will have no Australian farmers left.

THIS POST ON FACEBOOK HAS GONE VIRAL AND IS NOW HEADING TOWARDS 1.5 MILLION HITS SINCE POSTED  ON MONDAY AFTERNOON

Charlie Phillott (left) The Australian December 2014 – Florence Owens Thompson (Dorthea Lange) March 1936 (originally photographed in b&w and retouched)

Dear Men and Women of Australia,

There are two photographs on this page, and while they might look like father and daughter, they are separated by two nations, one ocean and some seventy years.

Yet incredibly, they are both part of the same tragedy, the kind that leaves deep and irreparable scars on a nation and its people for a lifetime.

The young woman who was born in 1907. The elderly man who was born twenty years later in 1927.

The photograph of the woman was taken in the Great Depression of 1936 when the man was still only 9 years old.

Her name was Florence Owens Thompson and she was a 32 year old mother of seven who was photographed sitting homeless in a tent. The image was published across the newspapers of America and it managed to enrage the nation, because people could not believe that Americans could be treated in such a way.

It forced President Roosevelt to act, to step up and become a leader for his times: he launched soup kitchens, work gangs, programs for the homeless, dams and roads and railways were built – and he gave his people hope.

John Steinbeck later wrote a book called The Grapes of Wrath which became an American literary Icon. It was about a drought that made the farmers penniless – and how the banks had forced them off their land so they could sell it on to the big powerful corporations. What happened to the farmers of Oklahoma ultimately carved a deep and shameful scar across the American identity that was felt throughout the Twentieth Century.

The second photograph on this page is of Charlie Phillott, now 87, an elderly farmer from the ruggedly beautiful Carisbrooke Station at Winton. He has owned his station since 1960, nurtured it and loved it like a part of his own flesh. He is a grand old gentleman, one of the much loved and honoured fathers of his community.

ANZNot so long ago, the ANZ bank came and drove him off his beloved station because the drought had devalued his land and they told him he was considered an unviable risk-  Yet –  “Charlie Phillott has never once missed a single mortgage payment”.

Today this dignified Grand Old Man of the West is living like some hunted down refugee in Winton, shocked and humiliated and penniless. And most of all, Charlie Phillott is ashamed, because as a member of the Great Generation – those fine and decent and ethical men and women who built this country – he believes that what happened to him was somehow his own fault. And the ANZ Bank certainly wanted to make sure they made him feel like that.

Last Friday my wife Heather and I flew up with Alan Jones to attend the Farmers Last Stand drought and debt meeting in Winton. And after what I saw being done to our own people, I have never been more ashamed to be Australian in my life.

What is happening out there is little more than corporate terrorism: our own Australian people are being bullied, threatened and abused by both banks and mining companies until they are forced off their own land.

So we must ask: “is this simply to move the people off their land and free up it up for mining by foreign mining companies or make suddenly newly empty farms available for purchase by Chinese buyers? As outrageous as it might seem, all the evidence flooding in seems to suggest that this is exactly what is going on”.

  • What is the role of Government in all of this?
  • Why have both the State and Federal Government stood back and allowed such a dreadful travesty to happen to our own people?
  • Where was Campbell Newman on this issue? Where was Prime Minister Abbott?

The answerThey are nowhere to be seen.

For the last few months, the Prime Minister has warned us against the threats of terrorism to our nation. We have been alerted to ISIS and its clear and present danger to the Australian people.

Abbott has despatched Australian military forces into the Middle East in an effort to destroy this threat to our own safety and security. This mobilization of our military forces has come at a massive and unbudgeted expense to the average Australian taxpayer which the Prime Minister estimates to be around half a billion dollars each year.

We are told that terrorism is dangerous not only because of the threat to human life but also because it displaces populations and creates the massive human cost of refugees.

Yet not one single newspaper or politician in this land has exposed the fact that the worst form of terrorism that is happening right now is going on inside the very heartland of our own nation as banks and foreign mining companies are deliberately and cruelly forcing our own Australian farmers off the land.

What we saw in the main hall of the Winton Shire Council on Friday simply defied all description: a room filled with hundreds of broken and battered refuges from our own country. It was a scene more tragic and traumatic than a dozen desperate funerals all laced onto the one stage.

Right now, all over the inland of both Queensland and NSW, there is nothing but social and financial carnage on a scale that has never before been witnessed in this nation.

It was 41 degrees when we touched down at the Winton airport, and when you fly in low over this landscape it is simply Apocalyptic: there has not been a drop of rain in Winton for two years and there is not a sheep, a cow, a kangaroo, an emu or a bird in sight. Even the trees in the very belly of the creeks are dying.

There is little doubt that this is a natural disaster of incredible magnitude – and yet nobody – neither state nor the federal government – is willing to declare it as such.

The suicide rate has now reached such epic proportions right across the inland: not just the farmer who takes the walk “ up the paddock” and does away with himself but also their children and their wives. Once again, it has barely been covered by the media, a dreadful masquerade that has assisted by the reticence and shame of honourable farming families caught in these tragic situations.

My wife is one of the toughest women I know. Her family went into North West of Queensland as pioneers one hundred years ago: this is her blood country and these are her people . Yet when she stood up to speak to this crowd on Friday she suddenly broke down: she told me later that when she looked into the eyes of her own people, what she saw was enough to break her heart

And yet not one of us knew it was this bad, this much of a national tragedy. The truth is that these days, the Australian media basically doesn’t give a damn. They have been muzzled and shut down by governments and foreign mining companies to the extent that they are no longer willing to write the real story. So the responsibility is now left to people like us, to social media – and you, the Australian people.

And so the banks have been free to play their games and completely terrorise these people at their leisure. The drought has devalued the land and the banks have seen their opportunity to strike. It was exactly the excuse that they needed to clean up and make a fortune, because once the rains come – as they always do – this land will be worth four to ten times the price.

In fact, when farmers have asked for the payout figures, the banks have been either deeply reluctant or not capable of providing the mortgage trail because they have on-sold the mortgage – just like sub-prime agriculture.

This problem isn’t simply happening in Winton, but rather right across the entire inland across Queensland and NSW. The banks have been bringing in the police to evict Australian famers and their families from their farms, many of them multigenerational. One farmer matter of factly told us it took “oh, about 7 police” to evict him from his first farm and “maybe about twelve” to evict him from his second farm which had been in his family for many generations. You think they are kidding you. Then you see the expression in their eyes.

And there was something far worse in the room on Friday: the fear of speaking out against the banks: when we asked people to tell us who had done this to them, they would immediately start to shake and cry and look away: They have been silenced to protect the good corporate image of their tormentors called the banks. What in God’s name have the bastard banks been allowed to do to our people?

This is a travesty against the rights and the human dignity

of every Australian

So it’s only fair that we start to name a few of major banks involved: The ANZ is a major culprit (they made $7 billion profit last year). Then there is Rabo – which is an international agricultural bank – the NAB, Bank West and Westpac (who paid CEO Gail Kelly a yearly salary of some $12 million). They are all equally guilty. For any that we have missed, rest assured they will be publicly exposed as well

But here’s the thing: when these people are forced off their farms, they have nowhere to go. There are no refugee services waiting, such is the case for those who attempt to enter the sovereign borders of this nation. The farmers simply drive to the nearest town – that’s if the banks haven’t stripped their cars off them as well – and they try and find somewhere to sleep. Some are sleeping on the backs of trucks in swags. There is basically no home or accommodation made available to take them. They camp out, shocked and broken and penniless – and they are living on weet bix and noodles. If there is someone that can lend a family enough money to buy food, they will: otherwise they are left completely alone.

And consider this: not one of them has asked for help. Not one. They just do the best they can, ashamed and broken and brainwashed by the banks to believe that everything that has happened is completely their own fault

There is not one single word of this from a politicians lips, with the exception of the incredibly courageous father and son team of Bob and Robbie Katter, who organised the Farmers Last Stand meeting. The Katter family have been in the North since the 1890’s, and nobody who sat in that hall last Friday could question their love and commitment to their own people.

There is barely a mention of any of this as well in the newspapers, with the exception of a brief splash of publicity that followed our visit.

The Minister for Agriculture Barnaby Joyce attended the meeting in a bitter blue-funk kind of mood that saw him mostly hunched over and staring at the floor. He had given $100 million of financial assistance in a lousy deal where the Government will borrow at 2.75% and loan it back at 3.21%.

The last thing these people need is another loan: they need a Redevelopment Bank to refinance their own loans: issuing a loan to pay off a loan is nothing more than financial suicide.

The reality is that Joyce cannot get support from what he calls “the shits in Cabinet” to create a desperately needed Redevelopment Bank so that these farmers can get cheap loans to tide them through to the end of the drought.

Our sources suggest that those “shits in Cabinet” include:

Malcolm Turnbull – Minister for Communications and the uber-cool trendy city-centric Liberal in the black leather jacket.

Andrew Robb – Minster for Trade and Investment and the man behind the free trade deal, the man who suddenly acquired three trendy Sydney restaurants almost overnight, the man who seems to suddenly desperate to sell off our farms to China.

Greg Hunt, Environment Minister and the man who is instantly approving almost every single mining project that is put in front of him.

 

At the conclusion of the meeting, we stood and met some of the people in the crowd. My wife talked to women who would hug her for dear life, and when they walked away people would suddenly murmur “oh, she was forced off last week” or “they are being forced off tomorrow” . Not one of them mentioned it to us. They had too much pride.

The Australian people need to be both informed and desperately outraged about what is being done to our own people. This is about every right that was once held dear to us: human rights, property rights, civil rights. And most all, our right to freedom of speech. All of that has been taken away from these people – and the rest of us need to understand that we are probably next.

In the last four weeks the Newman Government has removed all farmers rights to protest to a mine and given mining companies the rights to take all the water they want from the Great Artesian Basin – and at no cost to them at all.

And all of this has happened under the watch of both Premier Newman and Prime Minister Abbott.

Until Friday, we used to think of Winton as the home of Waltzing Matilda: it was written at a local station and first performed in the North Gregory Hotel. I think it was Don McLean who wrote, “something touched me deep inside…the day the music died”… in his song American Pie, and for us, last Friday was the day music died.

We will never be able to sing Waltzing Matilda again until we see some justice for these people, and all the farmers of the inland.

This is no longer the Australia we once knew: no longer our country, no longer our people, no longer the decent caring leaders we once remembered.

Right now, the banks, the mining mates, the corrupt politicians and all the ‘mongrels in suits’ have won – and the Australian people don’t have a clue what has been done to them.

Like the American Depression and the iconic photograph of Florence Owens Thompson, there is a terrible, gaping wound that has been carved across the heartland of this nation.

We need to fully grasp that, and to understand that our people – dignified, decent and honourable old men like Charlie Phillott – have been deliberately terrorized, brutalised – and sold out.

In one sense, Charlie Phillott has become the symbol overnight of every decent Australian: the simple right to live out our lives on the land we love – and the land we are still free to call our own. At least until some dangerously persuaded corrupted trendy liberal theorist decided to strip all that away.

The truth is, no Australian was ever consulted about whether or not they wanted to see their land mined into oblivion or see our precious water poisoned and given away for free, whether they wanted to be driven off their land by the greed of banking executives who saw the chance to make a profit by wiping out the weakest and most vulnerable amongst us.

No Australian was ever consulted about whether or not we wanted to see our beloved homeland sold on the cheap to greedy faceless foreigners just because some slimy two-faced minister managed to convince a weakened prime minster to meekly carry out his bidding.

Nobody has asked, “We the People” – Not once.

So if we are ever going to do something, then we’d better realise that its now only two minutes to midnight – so we’d better move fast.

The Fall Of Australia

This video was produced in 2012 by Stephan Molyneux, a disturbing collection of facts, figures and assessment.

You may not agree with all that is said,  but facts of that time having  escalated the ensuing 12 months,  paints a dim future for Australia living in the clouds  of “She’ll be right”
