I Will Tell My Story #7 No Room At The Inn

I have created art displays in Indonesia at places important to General Douglas MacArthur, Barak Obama and Presidents Jokowi and Yudhoyono. I should be helping Australia to be better friends with Indonesia.

But for me in this country there is no room at The Inn.

We should be living with Covid and applying our minds freely to saving our world.

Instead we are crippled by a culture of fear.

We need a restoration of freedom and human rights.

Not more votes for Barabbas.

We need to live in The Word. Rationality. Discourse. Freedom of Speech. Democracy.

Who will deliver that?

An Open Letter to All Christian Leaders

Fellow human beings,

Christianity was once the foundation of Western life.

In the West now, Christians are under merciless, almost constant, secular attack.

The challenge I see now for Christian leaders is to regain trust from the people on whom the living future of churches depends.

I recommend two strategies for achieving this goal:

A. Stop voting for Barabbas. (i.e. Do not support those who attack you. Call them out.)

B. Get better at living in The Word. (i.e. Do better at communicating.)

I hope this helps.

So many of us need you back at your best,

sincerely,

Geoff Fox, a non Christian grandson of a Presbyterian (Uniting Church) and an academic theologian, December 12, 2021, Terra Nullius

This Is Enough – The Anzac Spirit

I am 64 years old and I was a midwife in the State Of Victoria for over a quarter of a century.

Today I witnessed one of the most inspiring things I have ever seen a woman do.

In state parliament, MP Catherine Cumming, stood to tell the story of horrible mistreatment of a kind, gentle, deeply loved, homeless man by 6 Victorian police officers.

She stated that this man “was asleep in a sleeping bag. He was forcibly dragged out of his sleeping bag by six police officers and dragged around the steps of the parliament to the side of the parliamentary precinct. Roughly handled. The footage is there. This is not on. This is not the way that you actually treat Victorians. A homeless man. A young, homeless, articulate man.”

“This is enough.” Dr Cumming insisted emphatically. “Enough of the way that you talk about these protestors, but disgusting the way you’ve treated them on these steps while we were in here debating yesterday.”

To those of us long suffering Victorians who want to see democracy protected and human rights respected, these words are wonderful.

The ten years that Catherine Cumming spent in the Army Reserve may be one of the best investments in its people that Australia has ever made.

God Bless you, Catherine.

I pray that you are given the strength to work to save Victorians from their sufferings under one of the worst governments in the Western World.

Medals Of Honor

Today Andrew X, who served as an electronics technician with the Royal Australian Navy for six years including time in the Persian Gulf, gave me his service medals and read out this very powerful peice of writing at the bottom of the front steps of the Victorian parliament in Spring St.





This is an astonishingly powerful cry from the heart. His act of trust in me makes these medals relinquished in deep deep despair into Medals of Honor.

Being accepted by him to receive his medals is one of the greatest compliments ever bestowed on me in 64 years of a culturally rich life.

I will do all I can to make his voice heard.

And to continue to strive to spread knowledge of the human rights lessons of World War Two.

Lined Up Like Stormtroopers – Lest We Forget

Today is the 64th birthday of former Australian Prime Minister Tony Abbott.

For innovative policy and speaking truths that others wouldn’t speak, I rate him as one of the best Australian Prime Ministers since WW2 hero John Curtin.

A very recent outstanding act of service to Australia from Mr Abbott is his statement condemning police action against peaceful protestors in Melbourne. He described police as being “……. lined up like stormtroopers …….” to stop a peaceful protest by “people who are sick and tired of (lockdown) restrictions which frankly are now becoming absolutely unreasonable”.

It needed to be said. And the public have a right to know who gave the orders and authorisation for the teargas and rubber bullets used by police against citizens exercising their right to free speech.

God bless you and thank you Mr Abbott.

Please stay strong.

The Godlike Suffering of George Cardinal Pell

On this day two years ago, falsely imprisoned by dark secular forces in what I consider the police state of Victoria, George Cardinal Pell wrote, “……. we cannot escape suffering …….”

609 years ago on this day in 1512, Michelangelo unveiled his work in the Sistine Chapel.

Lest we forget.

Let there be light.

Daniel Andrews – How Many People Have Your Lockdowns Killed?

Daniel Michael Andrews, your government has made Melbourne the most locked down city in the world.

You act as if you do that for safety but you focus too much on Covid statistics and ignore other causes of death. I was a health professional in your state for a quarter of a century.

So I ask you: how many people have your lockdowns killed?

How many old people have died of grief in nursing homes when lockdowns have cut off their social contacts?

What has happened to the suicide rate during your 6th lockdown? Especially the teenage suicide rate.

What has happened to the breast cancer death rate ? And death rates from other cancers and other diseases?

In the UK 70,000 more people have died at home since the pandemic.

Have more people died at home during your lockdowns? How many of those deaths were preventable? Did they get adequate pain relief?

Daniel Andrews, the people have a right to know.

Open Letter to Karl David and All Good Cops.

Dear Karl David (President, The Police Association Victoria) and all your troubled colleagues,

today, on the 44th anniversary of Bing Crosby’s death, I invoke Gentleman Bing’s immortal spirit to ask you to listen to me and millions of others who are suffering needlessly and unfairly because of work you are, arguably, “forced” to do.

Lockdowns are killing people and trashing their human rights, their livelihoods and their societies.

You do not have to do that or assist that.

You have the right and responsibility to serve and protect.

You know that. I know that. So do many other people in their hearts if not their heads.

Please BE a force for good not for evil.

Stand up now against your own growing police states.

Please.

Geoff Fox, 14th October, 2021, Down Under.

ScoMo – How Many People Do Lockdowns Kill?

Dear Prime Minister Morrison,

I write to you from Melbourne, the most locked down city in the world.

I was a health professional in the State of Victoria from 1982 till 2018.

The current Victorian government is now trashing human rights and freedom in ways that kill people.

As I understand it:

A. The teenage suicide rate has doubled.

B. Deaths from breast cancer have increased.

C. Grief stricken residents in Aged Care are stopping eating when they lose contact with loved ones and are then dying. This would be death by starvation in modern Australia.

I know of numerous doctors who are deeply concerned that many other ways of dying from lockdowns will emerge in the future.

Now is the time to start preventing those deaths instead of ignoring them.

There is one simple question that needs to be addressed.

I call upon you, Mr Morrison, to use all the power and influence of your office to address it:

HOW MANY PEOPLE DO LOCKDOWNS KILL?

Australia Is Not A Free Country

Cardinal George Pell conducted a mass and was thrown into jail for over 400 days under the state government of Australian Labor Party Socialist Left faction member Daniel Andrews.

The High Court Of Australia overturned the conviction of Cardinal Pell 7-0.

When I demanded an apology from police because I was appalled by what they did to Pell, they did not reply.

This is not a free country. As Florida Governor Ron DeSantis said, it is “off the rails”. He is right.

Former Australian Prime Minister Tony Abbott has talked of “Victoria Police lined up like stormtroopers.”

When I asked politicians from this governing party to commemorate WW2, Victoria Police had me arrested and threatened with two years jail.

Australia and America should be friends and should be free.

But that dream of freedom is dead down under.
