POLICE STATE BASTARDRY

I denounce the police state bastardry of Premier Daniel Andrews’ Labor Party government in the State of Victoria.

In 2016 when I lobbied them for memorial tree plantings, they trashed my civic and democratic rights to protect a Labor Party politician from doing her job.

Then they trashed the basic legal rights of Australia’s second most successful ever Catholic, Cardinal George Pell, and imprisoned him. The High Court Of Australia set him free in a resounding 7-0 judgement.

Now they are isolating old people from their families without giving them any choice.

This socialist left government is forcing most businesses in the state to stop normal trading.

This “government” is imprisoning millions of innocent Victorians in their own homes.

That is Victoria.

I condemn “Dictator Dan” for the anti-democratic, anti-freedom practices of his Big Government.

May God help us all wherever such “socialists” destroy people’s lives.

Religious Persecution – Joan Of Arc and Cardinal George Pell

with Pell

Joan of Arc was executed on the 30th of May 1431.

She was a religious warrior.

What was done to her by the English forces invading France and their French allies was wrong.

Joan wore male clothes to protect her from rape and this dress was part of the “reason” she was executed.

Cardinal George Pell was found guilty of molesting two boys while wearing garments which made that molestation impossible. These traditional garments worked to prevent what Pell was shamefully accused of. easons which make me believe that the conviction and imprisonment of Australia’s second most successful catholic was an injustice on a par with what was one to Saint Joan.

I dont have time now to state all the other reasons I believe the treatment of Pell can be compared with what was done to Joan Of Arc. (I am going out this Sunday afternoon in Australia to have a kick of the footy (a.k.a. football) with a Man Of God.)

Suffice to say the High Court Of Australia overturned Pells’ conviction in a 7-0 judgement.

I too suffered injustice in the so-called justice system of the police state of Victoria.

Shame on you, Socialist Left Premier Daniel Andrews.

Shame!

Shame!

Shame.!

Cardinal Pell Was Crucified – Premier Andrews MUST Resign

4U

I make this statement as the proud grandson of two distinguished Christian theologians, Professor Arthur Clampett Fox and senior Presbyterian leader, Rev Julian Ralph Blanchard, who finished life in the Uniting Church.

I make this statement because I know how badly justice and western traditions have been trashed in Daniel Andrews’ Victoria.

I make this statement as a poet proud of the power of metaphor in the English language which I love.

Cardinal George Pell was crucified.

Socialist Left misleader Daniel Andrews MUST resign.

Conservatives – The Future’s Best Conservationists.

For a long time the progressive side of western politics has largely owned the issues relating to the environment. (Apologies to Margaret Thatcher and Arnold Schwarzenegger.)

I predict that conservatives will become the best conservationists because conservatives care about conserving what is good.

Conservatives are often better at being humble about their responsibilities to the created world gifted to us (as I believe) through the evolutionary process from A God worshipped by most of the world’s people. As I wrote for the concluding words spoken at an international Islamic  environmentalist conference in Bogor, Indonesia, about a decade ago: “God is green.”

How can progressive thinking which so often ridicules faith in God connect with the whole world on issues vital to the whole world.

Progressives are their own gods. They seem to think they themselves are omnisicient. In the real world, intellectual humility works better. This requires a balance of respect for past, present and future not trendy self-absorption.

Progressives cannot stop themselves from making the world worse by trying to change things which don’t need changing. Look at the way the Presumption of Innocence and the principle of Beyond Reasonable Doubt in Australia have gone out the door in Victoria’s shameful persecution of Cardinal George Pell.

Pell’s persecution was initiated by the same police who trashed my rights in the same court system where Pell suffered. The progressive side of Australian politics produced my sufferings at the hands of police when I wanted to combine environmental tree planting with memorial tree planting on vacant defence department land in my own neighbourhood. Interviewing me to hear my side of the story before locking in court action was never considered by them.

Progressives aren’t happy unless they are changing something, anything. This can mean they then toss out what is good from the past and feel that just because things have changed things will be better. They don’t always assess whether the change is needed. Consequently the heavy lifting on what really does need to change is frequently done by conservatives.

Does anyone who knows how America and the Democratic Party were tearing themselves apart in 1968, seriously think that Lyndon Johnson created a great society? But who can deny that it was Richard Nixon who gave America an Environmental Protection Agency?

In Australia, the White Australia policy was dismantled, Aboriginal people were first formally recognised as Australians and gay marriage became law under conservative governments.

This happened because conservatives can be better at freedom and openness and respect which are preconditions for the consensus essential for change.

Human fallibility has not ruined all of this world yet. I believe we can probably survive.

But we must find ways to come together to conserve.

In Australia right now that leadership job falls to conservative Scott Morrison not the apparatchiks of the Australian Labour Party.

The world is watching. The fires got their attention.

What will happen next?
