Attention King Charles #2 What Do You Stand For Now?

King Charles,

My current problems in the police state of Victoria began when I was dragged through psychological hell by the police here in 2016 to protect an ALP politician in government from doing the job of being a people’s representative.

On 9/11 this year, during the memorial service for your mother at your church, St Paul’s Cathedral in Melbourne, things got worse. Click here for a detailed account. In a nutshell, when I tried to tell police that they had human rights responsibilities, (here I use the words of the Dean of the Cathedral written to me at 3.02 p.m. today AEST to describe what happened): “Victoria Police arrested you on the forecourt of the Cathedral. I believe that you have no reason to lie to me when you tell me that you were manhandled by the police in a way that you describe to be a low-grade sexual assault.”

Today I reluctantly agreed to meet the Dean at a building behind the cathedral to try to find a solution. He just wouldn’t even walk outside the building to a place one minutes walk away where discussion of human rights issues would have felt right to me.

A bit after 2.15 p.m. the Dean spoke to me about what happened to me at his church on 9/11 as if he didnt know what happened. 15 days after the event. It took 15 days for him to talk to a victim of sexual assault by police at the entrance to his cathedral. Anglican authorities who work closely with him were informed of the incident by me the following day (9/12), as I recall.

I exploded with anger at this point, about 2.20 p.m. today, at the Dean, and, shortly afterwards at the man who accompanied him. I wish I hadn’t, but I did. I had tried very hard to get the Dean to agree to meet at a more appropriate location for human rights issues, but the Dean just didn’t see how asking a man traumatised by sexual assualt to meet him at the complex of buildings where the assualt happened was gob smackingly insensitive.

And to day the Dean has written to me (3.02 p.m.) that the answer to this situation is to get the assault dealt with by complaining to the organisation whose personnel committed the crime.

Again, gob smackingly insensitive to me.

FYI, King Charles, I have begun formal complaints on human rights grounds to the Victorian Equal Opportunity and Human Rights Commission about both The Dean of St Paul’s conduct in response to police attacks on me at the entrance to the Cathedral and Archbishop Philip Freier’s conduct in response to the same police attacks on me at the entrance to the Cathedral.

Victoria Police might be treating Victorians worse now that they did when their predecessors persecuted Irishman Ned Kelly in the late 1800’s and turned him into a national hero.

It is very every healing for me in this time of a profound emotional trauma to commune with Ned:

Communing with the amour of Ned Kelly in a sanctum of refuge for me in the police state of Victoria.

It seems to me that two of your subordinates, the Dean and the Archbishop are in this matter not up to the job of treating a male victim of sexual assault with sensitivity and respect. I believe the story of their best and their worst makes compelling reading.

Will you tolerate the trashing of human rights at your mother’s memorial service without making any comment, King Charles?

What sort of king are you going to be ?

I’d rather plant environmentalist WW2 memorial trees with you than send an open letter like this.

But such is life.

Attention King Charles: Daniel Michael Andrews Is A Criminal in Government In Victoria

King Charles,

you face enormous challenges to hold together the best values of our British heritage which have spread around the world.

In Melbourne, Australia, an arrogant, inhuman, stupid, selfish man named Daniel Michael Andrews has caused too much misery to his own people to be ignored.

But people are speaking out and their voices will prevail.

Freedom Party leader Morgan C Jonas talks to the people of Melbourne about Victorian Premier Daniel Michael Andrews

Commentator Rebekah Spelman writes:

“I fully agree with Morgan, who is the most honorable man I’ve ever met.

Andrews is clearly a power hungry despot and a coward. He won’t offer any evidence for why he imposed such harsh lockdowns on Melbourne and regional Victoria. 

I believe Andrews knows he couldn’t get to power without cheating, and he’s too spineless to ever answer accusations against him. A coward says “I can’t recall”.

I would like to see Daniel Michael Andrews arrested and tried, then when found guilty, prosecuted as harshly as our laws allow; which in my view is not harshly enough.”

When good people do nothing, evil triumphs.

Becky Spelman and Morgan Jonas fill me with hope that good can triumph.

King Charles, please don’t ignore their voices.

If you speak up for freedom, you will be a great king.

Open Letter To Andreas Loewe: Please Talk With Me And Our Uncle Glenn

Dean,

Existing below the supreme power of God, not all powers on our earth are equal.

In Western societies, justice systems are failing the people again and again and again.

Sharing my friendship with Al Godfrey with you was one of the highlights of my artistic endeavours for Australia in Indonesia.

Myself in Morotai, Indonesia with an image of Al Godfrey.

We should have followed through on the spirit of international friendship in what we did with Al. Instead I have suffered terrible denial of my rights by police who appear to have been at your cathedral.

I have just submitted this human rights complaint to Victorian Equal Opportunity And Human Rights Commissioner Ro Allen.

“Ro Allen,

with a heavy heart, I name the Dean of St Paul’s Cathedral, Jost Andreas Loewe, as a respondent in this human rights complaint relating to the nature of his Cathedral’s relationship with Victoria Police and insensitivity and failure to properly address issues raised by me with him.

I do this under the Charter of Human Rights and Responsibilities Act 2006 both both section 10 B  (A person must not treated or punished in a cruel, inhuman or degrading way) and Section15.2 (Every person has the right to freedom of expression which includes the freedom to seek, receive and impart information and ideas of all kinds, whether within or outside Victoria and whether— (a) orally; or (b) in writing; or (c) in print;)

Dean, in this matter I look to a higher power than any western pretense of justice in the Police State of Victoria to resolve what’s gone wrong between you and me: Associate Professor Uncle Glenn Loughrey’s unique combination of ancient and modern knowledge may be the mediator you and I need.

While Uncle Glenn does not profess to have all the answers to everything, he is willing to listen.

Dean, will you talk with me and Uncle Glenn, just the three of us, and see if we can resolve the differences we have in accordance with an ancient culture which is probably much better attuned to human needs than anything which owes its origins to the pernicious lies and still pervasive methodology of the doctrine of Terra Nullius?

Dean, can you and I try to do this The Aboriginal Way?

Postscript. (26/9/2022)

Archbishop, you have helped me with my concept of being anglo-islamic this year.

You memorial tree planting collaboration with Bishop David Farrer enriched my progressive-conservative environmentalist website this year.

I am still thinking about the possibility of the compatibility of my core beliefs with becoming Anglican.

But every day on which you do not discuss my complaint against you of human rights violations against me based on your response to my treatment by police at the entrance to St Pauls Cathedral on 9/11 this year during the QE2 memorial service, is a day on which you dig a deeper hole for your self with respect to those violations.

Is this what your new boss King Charles would want you to do?

Is this what Jesus would do?

The Word = Logos = discourse = talking with me.

Victoria Police Human Rights Violations And Physical And Low-Grade Sexual Assault During Queen Elizabeth Memorial Service In Melbourne

“It has always been easy to hate and destroy. To build and to cherish is much more difficult.” – Queen Elizabeth The Second

I love St Paul’s Cathedral in Melbourne.

Owing to the wonderful freedoms the Cathedral gives to creative people, I have created online art there this year (for my Indonesianist website) about my own complex spiritual journey, which is now taking me closer to Anglicanism than I have ever been before in my life.

Last Sunday, I went to the Cathedral at about 6 p.m. to see if I could attend the memorial service for Queen Elizabeth The Second. As I approached the entrance I was able to say hello to a very interesting looking man carrying the Aboriginal flag. He was a Wathaurong man. As I understand it, Wathaurong is an aboriginal nation or language group located to the west of Melbourne.

The back of the Cathedral was extremely crowded and at that time it was impossible for me to see anything over people’s heads except the roof. It was also a little difficult to clearly hear everything.

I decided it might be more worthwhile for me to go outside and talk with the Wathaurong man.

I overhead a woman in good, dark clothes talking with him about the possibility of arresting him and I tried to talk with her about the human rights implications of threatening a non violent First Nations man with arrest. She told me that she was offended by me saying that she had threatened him with arrest. I told her that I was offended by her saying she was offended by what I had said. I now realise that her taking of offense proved to me that she did not understand freedom of speech.

Soon after that, the Wathaurong man was in discussions with a man at the cathedral entrance and dressed in a similar way to the afore mentioned woman.

Believing that there were potential human rights problems brewing here, I tried to be a go between and possible conciliator since it seemed to me that police were probably keeping an aboriginal man out of the cathedral.

Based on my very brief conversation with him, this man believes his people hold full sovereignty over their ancestral lands. I dont know enough about this belief yet to fully or partially ascribe to it or fully reject it, but I feel strongly that, like any real problem, First Nations claims to sovereignty in Australia must be discussed and addressed with something that gives Australia’s original first Australians a better place but probably not fully independent soveriegnty over Australian lands.

Police asked me to move on. I asked if I was committing a crime. The reply was to move on.

I stuck to my guns stating there were human rights issues. I believe in living in The Word which for me means discussing what needs to be discussed. I consider that to be both a right and a responsibility.

Police dragged me away from the cathedral. I resisted that and in the scuffle, I  was pushed to the ground and held to the ground with a level of force way above what is needed for a small group of younger police officers to subdue a peaceful, but talkative, potbellied 65 year old like me.

I was now very angry and began shouting things like “Freedom of religion.”, “Freedom of speech.” , “My dad faced Japanese bullets in World War Two in Balikpapan so Australia would be free.” and “This is a police state.”

It would be a great shame if my noise caused a problem for those mourning in the cathedral, but I do not think what i was doing was completely out of sync with the beliefs of Queen Elizabeth herself. On the 9th of October 1964, HRH said, “It is my ardent desire that no citizen in my realms should suffer restraint.”

I was then frisked. This included a finger or two going down the back of my underpants between my buttocks.

I felt exceedingly uncomfortable and profoundly degraded by that.

As I recall, I said something about the finger or fingers in my underpants, but no one from the small gang of police officers made any response.

The police then took me to the Swanston St seats at the Cathedral’s side and asked me my name.

I told them I would give my name if they gave me an event number for a police investigation into Shane Andrew Patton’s culpability in the false imprisonment of Cardinal George Pell.

This question was repeated by quite a few police officers over the next hour or so and I gave variously worded but substantially unchanging responses. I did my best to impress on those officers willing to listen to me, that Patton’s crimes are much more important business for the police or other more willing authorities to sort out, than halting my human rights and religious conversations in front of the cathedral.

I was taken to a lockup and photographed and fingerprinted.

The cell I was placed in had a toilet and a camera on the wall close to the roof. this camera looked like it could see everything if someone who used the toilet was not very careful about how they used it. There was no toilet paper provided.

Finger prints revealed my identity  and I was released. Police officers told me charges would be mailed to me.

Not knowing where I was and not granted the ride back to the city which I requested, I eventually found my way back to town.

My conservative, libertarian friend Rebekah Spelman has had this to say about my account of what happened:

“That’s a frightful experience, Geoff.

It sounds to me like VicPol dragged you through the gauntlet as far as they did in order to not lose face or give up ground.

What an absolute waste of resources, not to mention the needless suffering or angst for you. I hope you’re alright.

You committed no crime.

They gave you The Full Treatment.

This is what our tax payer dollars are going to.

Meanwhile a friend of mine lives next door to known junkie criminals who blatantly and repeatedly break into her backyard and shed to steal, and the police can’t do a thing at all.

This state is rotten and the problem starts at the top.”

I agree with Becky.

That is why I tried to get the police to focus more on the crimes of Shane Andrew Patton than on violating my human rights to freedom of speech, to freedom of association, to freedom of movement, to freedom of religion and to freedom from degrading and humiliating treatment.

But the most important thing here for me now is not the police violation of my human rights or the physical or low-grade sexual assault against me.

I reported a crime to them.

They did not investigate or respect the report I made.

That’s one more reason that I have the right and responsibility to call the country of my birth a police state.

Women Against Andrews #2 Rebekah Spelman

On the 21st anniversary of the horrific terrorist attacks on the World Trade Centre in New York and the Pentagon in Washington DC, I, Geoff Fox, speak up with Rebekah Spelman against the despicable terrorism of Daniel Michael Andrews, the Premier of Victoria.

Becky has currently left Victoria to try to take stock of what has been done by the evil Andrews state government.

Here are this woman’s strong, raw words on the deep wounds to her patriotic soul from that man:

“I am here in London because I can’t stand the tyranny and the way our lives are being decided for us by a bunch of self-declared rulers ……. Andrews is a power hungry despot and his history of corruption, lies and blatant disregard for the law or the social, moral, legal and economic bounds on him are infuriating. He runs our state into the ground financially by blowing up the state budget to the point where our debt is greater than New South Wales and Queensland combined. There’s no limit to his spending; that’s not good governance. It’s ignorance.

He has broken the law and abused our human rights and these breaches have been found and declared by official inquiries, but there are no consequences and he just carries on.”

Daniel Andrews made shameless use of fear politics in daily press conferences about the Coronavirus to justify lockdowns which trashed educational outcomes, trashed the economy, did enormous damage to just about every aspect of social living and falsely imprisoned millions of Melbourne people in their own homes longer than in any other place in the world.

Andrews is a terrorist.

I am confident that, when Becky Spelman returns to Melbourne, she will keep calling him out.

Her real strength and the greater freedom movement are bound to win.

Freedom always wins because freedom works.

Police State Crits #8 Unnecessary And Counter-Productive Police Involvement In Charity Work

This morning at breakfast at an historic church, I met a homeless guy, whom I will call D, with what looked like wonderful sporting memorabilia which he was seeking to sell. I told him I would like to help and to be involved as a filmmaker and/or photographer.

With his permission, I sent a text to P, a fantastic but overloaded worker at a nearby charity organisation which both helps the homeless and is well connected enough to arrange an auction to get a good price for the memorabilia. I told him that I believed this organisation would be a worthy recipient of some of the money raised if he were willing to give them a commission.

I asked P by text if she would help selling the memorabilia. Earlier in the morning I had sent P another text message pushing hard for discussion of two unresolved incidents of bullying at the organisation earlier in the year.

D and I walked to the organisation’s premises.

When we arrived, I made a follow up phone call to P, who said that she was nearby and would meet us in front of the building.

As a film maker, I told P that her involvement in an auction would help get a better price because she is beautiful. Which she is. Both the inner beauty of someone who cares deeply about others and physical female beauty.

P arrived at our meeting with two police officers in full uniform. No crime had been committed or was likely to be committed, as far as I knew, so I saw no need for their presence, but I kept quiete about that initially. (The primary role of a police force should be to deal with crime, not to oversee charity fund raising efforts among vulnerable people who might actually be put off by police involvement.)

But in a police state, the police can become involved in everything and far too often nobody ever says how ridiculous it is for police to do things like being involved in someone’s desire to help a homeless man and a charity.

I asked P if she was willing to be filmed sighting the guys memorabilia. She said she wasn’t camera ready. Assuming this mean she wasn’t wearing make-up, I asked if she’d be willing for her hand to be onscreen handling the goods and her voice offscreen. She declined. No worries. Move on.

Seeing no further role for myself in the likely exchanges that morning, I asked her to focus on D. She said she wanted to deal first with the bullying issues I had raised. I asked her to step aside as that was not a conversation I wanted to happen in public. The two police followed us as we did so. I stated my opinion to one of them that this was not a police matter.

I then found myself facing one of the police officers whom I will call B adopting the pose in the photo the reader can see of him as the feature photo of this post and below in another photo which was taken about a second or two later and is slightly different emotionally.

I get very angry when I see officers of Victoria Police force concealing their identity in public. I demanded that B tell me why he was concealing his identity and told him that he was breeching professional standards by doing so.

He than lowered his hands so his identity was visible and told me in an incredibly condescending and patronising voice something to the effect that he wanted to help me. Condescension is not police work.

This made me even angrier and I started to demand an explanation from him for his organisation’s appalling treatment of Cardinal George Pell. One intention I had underlying this change of topic was to test out B’s professed desire to help by redirecting our focus towards a real crime (the false imprisonment in Victoria for over 400 days of Cardinal George Pell) which has not yet been properly investigated by the organisation primarily responsible for doing so: Victoria Police.

I had an appointment for WW2 military heritage work with a veteran’s organization in another part of town, so I decided that I could not contribute positively anymore to helpng D and left.

I asked P to contact me ASAP to deal with things better.

I think she made a big mistake involving the police, if that is what happened, but she is a kind hearted hard working over loaded charity worker so I dont want to get too critical on that.

For all I know, Officer B might be a great bloke who could become a fantastic friend to me. But concealing his identity and talking in a condescending way were not good. I hope he apologises. If he does apologise, its case closed as far as I am concerned with respect to what he did. If he doesn’t, then concealing his identity is a clear breech of professional standards. It happens far too often. He should be held to account.

It. Is. not. Acceptable.

The really big issue here for me is over-policing in Victoria. Bad government in this state has created horrible problems for far too many people, when police are used to trash freedoms for stupid reasons.

In my non expert opinion, up to half of Victoria Police Force should be redeployed to the Australian Defence Force and retrained to help face Australia’s real security and safety problem which is the unknown future of the nation’s relationship with the People’s Republic of China.

But I don’t know everything. Being omniscient is God’s job. Not mine. Not P’s. And not B’s.

But God help us all when unnecessary police interference stops good people doing good things.
