Women For Freedom #14 A Christian Lady

On this day in 1861, during the American Civil War, passionate anti slavery campaigner Julia Ward Howe wrote The Battle Hymn Of The Republic. Today I take some of the words of that song, modernising a few of them, and then combine them with images of an Australian Christian woman who regularly stands up against tyranny on the streets of Melbourne.

This anonymous woman is one of the many stalwarts of Melbourne’s freedom movement.

Again and again, I have seen her bring both passionate defiance of tyranny and devotion to Her Lord Jesus Christ to the streets of Melbourne. In this image, she does not look forward to the false promises of a clearway from a Socialist Left police state. She looks to what comes to her from the past, from her faith in Jesus Christ and what He contributed to Western Heritage to give her and so many His followers so much genuine moral strength.

God Bless Her Now And Forever

Aussie Freedom Fighters #11 Javin – Call For Solidarity

Javin’s dad is a king of the Taggers.

So Javin is a prince in more ways than one.

Like many others he is a victim of terrifying oppression and denial of basic rights in the police state of Victoria.

But Javin speaks up and calls on others to join him.

God Bless Freedom

Aussie Freedom Freedom Fighters #7 Pauline

The sophistication and complexity of our intellectual communication separates us from most other species, as far as I know.

All we mortal human beings usually seem to need to speak our truths as best we can.

That’s why freedom of speech is so important to us.

That freedom includes both speaking and being heard.

But absolute certainties reside with God.

Godless tyrants now frequently destroy what’s best in themselves and too many innocent victims.

Women For Freedom # 10 Mel


Registered Nurse Mel is one of Melbourne’s many beautiful dinki-di Australian freedom fighters.

On the 112th anniversary of the death of Florence Nightingale, Mel speaks up loud and clear for truth and freedom in health care.

Against bureaucratic political tyranny which trashes the relationships of trust which Florence Nightingale insisted are crucial to health care.

God bless freedom, truth and Mel.

A Half-Naked Queen Victoria As A Symbol Of Political And Spiritual Progress

The 22nd of June, 209 A.D., is considered the most likely date for the martyrdom of St Alban. The miracles surrounding his execution drew some of his Roman executioners to Christianity.

In 2022, the democracy beloved of Walt Whitman is under constant threat from various ideologies inimical to any social order based on civilised humanity and the freedoms humans need.

In opposition to those trends, I offer as a symbol of what we really need, the very real female beauty of the young Queen Victoria, as depicted as a symbol of progress over a hundred years ago in a statue in Queen Victoria Gardens, Melbourne. This statue makes me think that those values may have done better closer to the Victorian era than they are doing now in Melbourne, Australia and most of the Western world.

Demokrasi, Ma Femme, I hope you rise again. Martyrdom as Baptism in this world.

I am a man who loves to see beautiful women and democracy and freedom.

God put those loves in me.

Praise The Lord.

Women For Freedom #7 Brooke Brooks No Fear

The Melbourne freedom movement cannot be defeated. It might lose many battles but there are too many good, beautiful people, like Brooke, standing up against the stupidity of modern tyrannies, for those on the side of freedom to be defeated.

Eventually, mindless, inhuman government always implodes upon itself and dies.

As John Keats wrote “Beauty is truthtruth beauty,—that is all ye know on earth, and all ye need to know.”

And the truth will set us free.

Police State Crits #4 – Becky Spelman Awake To The World

Henry James died on this date, the 28th of February, 106 years ago, in 1916, in the middle of the Great War.

He wrote: “Life is, in fact, a battle. Evil is insolent and strong; beauty enchanting, but rare; goodness very apt to be weak; folly very apt to be defiant; wickedness to carry the day; imbeciles to be in great places, people of sense in small, and mankind generally unhappy. But the world as it stands is no narrow illusion, no phantasm, no evil dream of the night; we wake up to it, forever and ever; and we can neither forget it nor deny it nor dispense with it.”

People like Beck Spelman confront the world as it is and by doing so they make it better. They name problems which others deny and that naming is the first step to solving any problem.

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.
