Attention King Charles #3 Some Facts About My 2022 In What Some Call Your Realm

KC,

you are Australia’s head of state and you are the Supreme Governor of The Church of England.

I tried theologically to make friends with Anglicans in Melbourne this year. I failed.

An Anglican indigenous leader from New South Wales was falsely described as part of Victorian Wurundjeri language group on his own website. It took me months to get the man to correct the mistake. Ironically this man prides himself on the importance of getting local knowledge right. Sometimes this makes him very wise. But why was it that he could not and cannot respect my attempts to correct his own mistake about his own origins?

He told me that for him aboriginal people should get sovereignty over all of Australia. 3% of the people to rule over the other 97% ?

When I told him I might be 1/16th aboriginal he told me that I had to be all or nothing. I tried to be his friend and engage with his culture

When I was angry because police attacked me in front of the church where this man has been canonised, he and that church’s dean laughed at me. Maybe it was embarassed, nervous laughter in a difficult situation. Maybe not.

The Anglican Church has spat out my attempts at friendship.

Am I better off?

Perhaps I need to move away from them/you towards our God.

Women’s Knowledge and Life and Freedom #4 The Power Of Love

4 time British Prime Minister William Gladstone was born on this date 213 years ago in 1809.

He was both a strong opponent of slavery and a statesman who tried to get people to see during the American Civil War that the confederacy’s determination to be independent could not be ignored. He opposed restoration of The Union by military force from the North.

60’s guitar hero Jimi Hendrix borrowed Gladstone’s dream of looking “forward to the time when the Power of Love will replace the Love of Power. Then will our world know the blessings of peace.”

I admire the idealism, which I glimpse from outside their language and culture, of Iranian women and their families and community in Melbourne, who are now opposing evil tyranny by calling it out.

I hope that idealism can succeed.

Women’s Science and Life and Freedom #2

Human participation in the creation of new human life is perhaps what brings brings us closer than anything else we do to Our God. I believe the courageous Iranian freedom fighter in these images fully understands that.

I also believe that no group of human beings more fully understands the deep spiritual and personal significance of birthdays than the group of human beings who so often go through labour to give us birth.

These people are our mothers.

Today is the 128th birthday of one of the most profoundly influential thinkers and leaders in Australian history – Robert Gordon Menzies.

Menzies described Freedom like this:

Freedom still rings true to me.

NB for political balance I plan to publish quotes from Menzies’ peacetime rival and wartime colleague John Curtin in 6 days time.

Women’s Science and Life and Freedom #1

The slightly clumsy but popular slogan “Woman Life Freedom” comes form the Kurdish slogan “Jin, Jîyan, Azadî”.

Here I, as a poet, offer a different transcreation, “Women’s Science and Life and Freedom”, because it sounds poetically more elegant to my ears.

As someone who was a midwife for approximately 3 decades, my intention here is to ask women what women’s science means to them.

Midwifery taught me that if you want to know what is important to a woman , the best way to find out is to ask her. That is the foundation of my midwifery.

God Bless Truth.

God Bless Freedom.

Or Should I Write “Goddess”?

To begin with, here is how I see the best of what is happening now:

Jesus Against Tyranny #1 Helena

“Rebellion to tyrants is obedience to God!” – Benjamin Franklin

The transformative story of Jesus’ birth to Mary and Joseph was a massive shift in human faith from a focus on venal squabbling gods to the love and power of family. Helena is a stalwart of Melbourne’s protests against the Socialist Left tyranny of the Andrews State government.

She holds the iconic image of the Mother and Child and wears a Cross with joy, passion and devotion against a government which persecutes Christians and deprives parents of basic family rights.

Tyranny cannot survive powers like this.

Remembering QE2 Remembering Her Dad – We Need A Revival Of Spirit

Today is the 127th birthday of King George The Sixth, the father of Queen Elisabeth The Second. My grandfather, Ralph Blanchard, attended her coronation in his capacity as Moderator-General of the Presbyterian Church.

In a D-Day address in 2019, with both her son, then Prince Charles, and President Donald Trump sitting behind her, Queen Elisabeth recalled with pride her father’s call to his people for a “revival of the spirit”.

The beginning of her life was a time of great hardship, The Great Depression and World War Two. This period of difficulty lead to one of the great documents of human history – The Universal Declaration Of Human Rights. (UDHR)

This declaration was the response to the Allied world’s triumph aver fascism. It was an attempt to see that fascist atrocities could never be repeated.

It was a time of hope. The young Princess Elisabeth and then Queen Elisabeth was a continuing symbol of that optimism.

Princess Elisabeth and her fiancé a few months before their wedding.

She stood for high ideals.

Lincoln’s formulation of “democracy of the people, by the people, for the people”.

“Congress and our Parliaments are the twin pillars of our civilisations.”

Faith “in the freedom of the individual and the rule of a fair and just law.”

“…. our societies rest on mutual agreement on contract and consensus”

(These 4 quotes come from the Queen’s address to the U.S. Congress in 1991.)

4 decades before that, in 1951, President Harry Truman was not the only one captivated by young Elisabeth’s beauty, grace and charm.

But what has happened to those ideals over the course of her lifetime?

The tragedy of Diana.

The intercontinental family feud that is Megxit.

The persistent allegations against the new King’s disgraced brother, Andrew.

The very recent trashing of the human rights of millions of people across the Western World.

And I personally was physically and sexually assaulted by police representing The Crown at the entrance of The Church of The Crown during a memorial service for Queen Elisabeth on 9/11 a little over three months ago.

I hope that George the Sixth and Elisabeth the Second rest in peace.

But I will not abandon my real human need for a spirit of revival and the fight for fairness and justice and universal human rights from modern government tyrants.

Freedom works.

To quote her own words, corruption of the best ideals espoused by Elisabeth “never grows well nor for very long. Force, in the end, is sterile.”

God Bless Freedom.

God save democracy and human rights.

Women Against Andrews #4 A Lady Artist

I do not know exactly why there is what to me is very clear evil in government over Australians and so many other western peoples now.

A brilliant anonymous lady artist who marched for freedom in Melbourne last Saturday has shown through her art on a placard that her perceptions have a great deal in common with mine.

She brilliantly condemned what she and I both see as the brainless and morally vacuous sheep who occupy far too many positions of power over people in the judiciary, bureaucracy and police force in Daniel Andrews’ Victoria.

Samuel Johnson, who died this day 238 years ago, described the process of the growth of corruption in ancient Rome like this: “…… the Commonwealth of Rome …… grew great only by the misery of the rest of mankind. The Romans, like others, as soon as they were rich, grew corrupt; and in their corruption sold the lives and freedoms of themselves and of one another.”

Is that the same as us in the rich, modern West?

I do not think that a single individual or group of individuals is a puppeteer behind Daniel Andrews.

The cord in the above photo that runs in a line to the middle of his back is a tramways power line. It carries electrical power.

What is the power that causes Andrews to be what Andrews is? To many of us, but not a majority, in Victoria, he is an unspeakably callous and evil “leader” who is singularly unfit to lead anyone.

To me, the power behind Andrews appears to be a mass psychosis sweeping The West.

An elemental force that is outside rationality.

Can the rational traditions of The West restore us to sanity?

Huck Finn Week – Day 4 – Dusty’s “Coming Down” And Beautiful White Angel Thalia With Her Dad

In the following instrumental, “Coming Down”, Australian Country Music singer-songwriter Dusty Starr plays guitar in a way that reminds me a little or a lot of Elmore James and Willie Nelson and Robbie Robertson rolled into one.

A laidback, easy going auditory heaven.

To try to capture the feel of this music in words, I have transcreated into objectified, slightly more modern English parts of runaway slave Jim’s hair-ball fortune-telling speech to Huck at the end of the fourth chapter in The Adventures Of Huckleberry Finn.

Huck was scared but Jim said,

Your dad dont know what he will do, so rest easy in letting him go his own way.

He’s got two angels ….. one white ….. one black.

The white one’s the right one, but the black one can sail in and bust it all up.”

That story was set in antebellum America of the 1840’s. Huck had a very troubled relationship with his drunk, violent father.

In the current year of the 2020’s, a beautiful white angel who has appeared in Melbourne, is Thalia looking safe and secure standing up for freedom with her dad on the recent Mission To Melbourne, when decent country people like Thalia and Dan brought new life and hope to Melbourne’s freedom movement.

Thalia and Dan.

You can’t stop human progress when traditions like honesty, good will, family and friendship remain solid and sound: this was as true in Mark Twain’s classic, as it is in Melbourne now.

Praise The Lord.

Huck Finn Week Day 3 – Jim Cousens Invokes The Anzus Treaty Against Daniel Andrews And Anthony Albanese

I am Jim Cousens. I don’t want to boast but, just so there wont be any confusion about how important my dockamentry films are to the future of mankind: “I am I am”.

In seeking a “show (chance) for freedom” with his friend, the runaway slave Jim, Huck Finn fled the constraints of houses and schools on land where he was “so cramped up and sivilized” and discovered on the mighty Mississippi River that, “You feel mighty free and easy and comfortable on a raft.”

Huck’s creator, Mark Twain, learnt on travels abroad that “when you get used to terror your emotions get dulled.”

This describes the nation of sheep which is Australia: too many idiots following bigger idiots to their freedom’s doom. Increasingly a nation of slaves.

Now I am not a shrinking violet when it comes to pointing out what is wrong with Australia. As Mark Twain wrote: “To be a patriot, one had to say, and keep on saying, ” Our country, right or wrong,” and urge on the little war. Have you not perceived that that phrase is an insult to the nation?” A true patriot will try to fix what’s wrong with his country, not pretend that everything’s allright.

So today, Pear Harbour Day, is the perfect time for me to turn what’s wrong around by sneaking up on my commie enemies in government in Australia and invoking the Anzus treaty which was created to deal with the threat of communism.

Today, 7th December, 2022, in the year of Our Lord, I call upon POTUS 47, Mr Ron DeSantis, of the free state of Florida, to exercise his moral authority and abilities, which already far exceed those of Joseph Robinette Biden Jr., and to invade as much of Australia as is necessary to save Australia from the evil pinko threat of Criminal-In-Chief, Daniel Michael Andrews, and his protégé, Anthony Norman Albanese. Biden is a mostly pinko Catholic, so the job has to go to a proven Pope Benedict style Catholic like Ron, the Navy Lieutenant Commander from Jacksonville.

Without wanting to put any undue emotional pressure on Mr DeSantis, I do point out now that no one has ever compensated Australia for what was done in America to Phar Lap and to Les Darcy and, even worse, to Olivia Newton-John.

If Ron is feeling really energetic at this time, he could consider fixing up New Zealand as an added bonus. I say in conclusion, “It’s up to you, mate. Whaddayareckon?”
