Read or Condemn Yourself to Death by Ignorance

For those courageous souls brave enough to look and see what is,

who are unwilling to blindly accept

the lies and rules of tyrannical authority.

The simple step of a courageous individual is not to take part in the lie.

One word of truth outweighs a world of lies.

Human Rights and Vaccine Passports

Vaccine passports violate the principle if not the letter of every medical, ethical and human rights agreement known to man! It is an abhorrent and tyrannical abrogation of our natural rights in the guise of helping and should not proceed.

Please sign this petition to support those who are defending our rights!

And here’s an article I penned showing your rights and all the violations our elected representatives are making against agreements our country has signed.

Making Biscuits 1938
Making Biscuits 1938

The poster of this wrote:
A young girl making biscuits in 1938. Look at this picture. We really think we have it bad in today's world. This is the generation that did make America great. Tough as nails. Worked hard. Made the changes necessary to work their own way out of poverty. There was no welfare, food stamps, public housing. They had to pull themselves out of their own situations.

Yes, in Australia and other countries too!
Hard times create tough people.
Tough people create easy times.
Easy times create soft people.
Soft people create hard times.

Harden up people!
Resolve to then do the following.
Raise your confront!
Raise your communication level!
Raise your ethic level!
Raise your competence!
Raise your production!

Only a high confront individual with their ethics in, being highly competent and productive and demanding the same of others is a solid building block of first a family unit and thereafter, society.

Now THAT is one helluva wise and kind woman!

The Carters
The Carters

In 1927 in Plains, Georgia, a three-year-old boy named Jimmy Carter lived next door to an auto mechanic, Francis Smith, and his pregnant wife, Allie. That August, Allie went into labor, and Jimmy’s mother, a nurse, helped deliver her daughter. The next day, little Jimmy went next door and peered into the crib. The baby inside was named Rosalynn.

As a teenager, “Rosie” had a fierce crush on Jimmy, but he was three years older, and apparently took little notice of the shy kid next door. During WWII, he left town to join the Naval Academy. One day in the summer of 1945, Jimmy returned to Plains on vacation. While riding in the rumble seat of a friend’s Ford, he looked toward the United Methodist church and saw Rosie, now seventeen and all grown up, standing out front. He was gobsmacked. Jimmy hopped out of the rumble seat and asked her to the movies. She jumped right in. He came home that night and told his mother that the baby she’d delivered seventeen years earlier was the girl he was going to marry.

This week, Jimmy and Rosalynn will celebrate their 75th wedding anniversary. Theirs is the longest marriage in presidential history. They have known each other for almost one hundred years.

HOPI Projection and Wisdom
Floyd Red Crow Westerman

“We were told that we would see America come and go. In a sense, America is dying, from within, because they forgot the instructions of how to live on earth. It’s the Hopi belief, it’s our belief, that if you are not spiritually connected to the earth, and understand the spiritual reality of how to live on earth, it’s likely that you will not make it.

Everything is spiritual, everything has a spirit, everything was brought here by the creator, the one creator. Some people call him God, some people call him Buddha, some people call him Allah, some people call him other names. We call him Tunkaschila, Grandfather.

We are here on earth only a few winters, then we go to the spirit world. The spirit world is more real than most of us believe.

The spirit world is everything. Over 95% of our body is water. In order to stay healthy, you’ve got to drink good water. Water is sacred, the air is sacred.

Our DNA is made out of the same DNA as the tree, the tree breaths what we exhale, we need what the tree exhales. So we have a common destiny with the tree.

We are all from the earth, and when the earth, the water, the atmosphere is corrupted, then it will create its own reaction. The mother is reacting.

In the Hopi prophecy, they say the storms and floods will become greater. To me, it’s not a negative thing to know that there will be great changes. It’s not negative, it’s evolution. When you look at it as evolution, it’s time, nothing stays the same. You should learn how to plant something. That is the first connection.

You should treat all things as spirit, realize that we are one family. It’s never something like the end. It’s like life, there is no end to life.” ~ Floyd Red Crow Westerman

Who’s packing your parachute?
Charles Plumb

Charles Plumb was a US Navy jet pilot in Vietnam. After 75 combat missions, his plane was destroyed by a surface-to-air missile. Plumb ejected and parachuted into enemy hands. He was captured and spent 6 years in a communist Vietnamese prison. He survived the ordeal and now lectures on lessons learned from that experience!

One day, when Plumb and his wife were sitting in a restaurant, a man at another table came up and said, “You’re Plumb! You flew jet fighters in Vietnam from the aircraft carrier Kitty Hawk. You were shot down!”

“How in the world did you know that?” asked Plumb.

“I packed your parachute,” the man replied.

Plumb gasped in surprise and gratitude.

The man pumped his hand and said, “I guess it worked!”

Plumb assured him, “It sure did. If your chute hadn’t worked, I wouldn’t be here today.”

Plumb couldn’t sleep that night, thinking about that man. Plumb says, “I kept wondering what he had looked like in a Navy uniform: a white hat; a bib in the back; and bell-bottom trousers.”

I wonder how many times I might have seen him and not even said “Good morning, how are you?” or anything because, you see, I was a fighter pilot and he was just a sailor. Plumb thought of the many hours the sailor had spent at a long wooden table in the bowels of the ship, carefully weaving the shrouds and folding the silks of each chute, holding in his hands each time the fate of someone he didn’t know.

Now, Plumb asks his audience, “Who’s packing your parachute?” Everyone has someone who provides what they need to make it through the day. He also points out that he needed many kinds of parachutes when his plane was shot down over enemy territory - he needed his physical parachute, his mental parachute, his emotional parachute, and his spiritual parachute. He called on all these supports before reaching safety.

Sometimes in the daily challenges that life gives us, we miss what is really important. We may fail to say hello, please, or thank you, congratulate someone on something wonderful that has happened to them, give a compliment, or just do something nice for no reason. As you go through this week, this month, this year, recognize people who pack your parachutes.

I am sending you this as my way of thanking you for your part in packing my parachute.

Morrison’s assault on Christine Holgate was NEVER about ’taxpayers’ money’ and Cartier watches

The chickens are coming home to roost at Australia Post. After the board and senior management revealed their cowardice and corruption by helping the Morrison government drive out Christine Holgate, the organisation is falling apart. Australia Post is haemorrhaging senior managers who are following Christine Holgate out the door, some to join her at Global Express, others just to get the hell out of there. The exodus spells bad news for the continuity of the organisation when new CEO Paul Graham takes over next month, and creates huge uncertainty, especially for the licensed post offices.

Already reeling from losing the “greatest CEO Australia Post has ever had” in Christine Holgate, under whom LPOs had enjoyed three good years out of the last 30, LPOs have now also lost the executive in charge of their division, Nicole Sheffield. Under Christine Holgate’s overall leadership, Nicole Sheffield had done a brilliant job in supporting the 2,850-strong LPO network and helping to make their businesses viable. However, like the rest of the executive team, she was caught up in the operation against Christine Holgate, and in the current state of chaos and dysfunction caused by that episode, she has decided to leave.

Corrupt hypocrisy!

In their desperation to retain executives, the Australia Post board has reportedly resorted to paying some of them retention bonuses of up to $250,000. The hypocrisy of this action is breathtaking! This is the same board that threw Christine Holgate under a bus and claimed in front of Senate hearings and the internal Maddocks lawyers’ inquiry that—hand on heart—they would never have approved of her awarding $5,000 Cartier watches to four executives if they had known about it. This is despite knowing that the watches were recognition for achieving the greatest deal in Australia Post’s history, which had saved both the LPOs and banking services in hundreds of regional communities. No, for some reason, Cartier watches were completely shocking, and this board would never have approved such a misuse of “taxpayers’ money”. Yet now this board is happy to pay an executive $250,000 to stay in their dysfunctional operation. The board members in question include four Liberal Party members who have been stacked on the board by the government, picking up $100,000 each to do PM Scott Morrison’s bidding: party “fixer” Tony Nutt; Michael Ronaldson; Bruce McIver; and Deidre Willmott.

The same goes for the spineless chairman, Lucio Di Bartolomeo. Unlike the four Liberals, Di Bartolomeo wasn’t at Australia Post when Christine Holgate awarded the watches. But he had worked with her for a year and knew what a good CEO she was. It was therefore his job to defend her from the political attacks she came under from Labor Senator Kimberley Kitching and Scott Morrison, but instead he also threw her under the bus and repeatedly told Senate hearings he too would never have approved the expenditure of $20,000 on Cartier watches. Now this Chairman is approving retention bonuses of up to $250,000 to bribe executives to still work for him.

This also means that the politicians who grandstanded about “taxpayers’ money”—Communications Minister Paul Fletcher, Finance Minister Simon Birmingham, and Prime Minister Scott Morrison—approve of Australia Post paying $250,000 retention bonuses. And what about the sanctimonious assassins in the Labor Party—Kimberley Kitching, Michelle Rowland, and Anthony Albanese—who instigated the attack on Christine Holgate for spending $20,000 on watches? They have been silent on the $250,000 retention bonuses. Whereas last year $20,000 of watches was the greatest sin of all time, for which Anthony Albanese said Christine Holgate deserved to lose her job, now $250,000 on numerous retention bonuses isn’t worth mentioning.

These $250,000 bonuses can be added to the list of other costs caused by the railroading of Christine Holgate, which already proved the rhetoric about “taxpayers’ money” to be a cynical joke. The costs incurred in outrage over $20,000 in “taxpayers’ money” include:

$350,000+ for a corporate headhunter to find her replacement;

$1-2 million to pay for the Maddocks inquiry and associated legal fees;

Multiple millions of dollars to pay for the Senate inquiry, its three hearings, and the associated legal costs; and

$1.1 million to pay out Christine Holgate’s contract and her legal costs, and unknown amounts for Australia Post’s legal costs.

Australia Post cover-up

Meanwhile Australia Post has turned down a Freedom of Information request from the Citizens Party for the terms of CBA and NAB’s 10-year renewal of their Bank@Post deals, specifically the amount of money they had agreed to pay as an annual Community Representation Fee (CRF). Australia Post’s excuse was that this was a commercial deal, and its commercial activities are exempt from FOI. According to reliable sources, Australia Post and the banks are hiding the figure because it is $10 million, half of the $20 million per year Christine Holgate had made them pay.

The fact is Christine Holgate was driven out of Australia Post because she saved it from banks and privatisers; now the banks have the upper hand and have used it to squeeze Australia Post to accept a lower payment for Bank@Post, even though the banks are closing branches at a record rate and creating more work for post offices. The only way to break the power of the banks and secure the long-term viability of Australia Post and its LPOs is by establishing a Commonwealth Postal Savings Bank, for which the Citizens Party has drafted legislation to introduce into Parliament.

What you can do

Get involved in the campaign for a postal bank by signing the petition (below) and forwarding the draft resolution to your local councillors, asking them to pass a motion endorsing the bank.

Contact Greens Senator Sarah Hanson-Young, who chaired the Australia Post inquiry, and One Nation Senator Pauline Hanson, who initiated it, and ask them when they intend to follow up their report and refer Australia Post Chair Lucio Di Bartolomeo to the Privileges Committee for misleading Parliament? This is a crucial next step in cleaning out the corruption at Australia Post, and keeping pressure on the Morrison government.

Lockdown Shuffle Protest Song by Kent Steedman

I received an email from Kent Steedman:

Kent here
Thanks for keeping people informed,
Here is a version of protest. Share if you feel to..not everyone likes rock music, but it works to protest, one of my ways of helping.
Al the best
Kent-Andrew Steedman

For those like me who find it difficult to make out the lyrics...

Lockdown Shuffle
See the adviser and the politician
They’ll tell you anything without contrition
They will just lie if its not verified
The level of incompetence can never be denied

So toe the line without thought or debate
If you don’t agree we ’ll humiliate
Wear a mask so you can’t breathe
And stop the spread of democracy

So remember while you’re locked away
Having such a struggle on full pay
you’ve set the course to ruin peoples lives
But it’s only the plebs who sacrifice

You’ve done an excellent job destroying the arts
Close all the borders and create a farce
Look now here’s a sculpture of a foot
Plenty of people can tell you where it should be put


Until next time,
dream big dreams,
plan out how to achieve them,
be continually executing your plans,
enlist people to your causes,
travel and/or read widely, preferably both,
all the while observing what you observe
rather than thinking what you are told to think,
think well of your fellow man,
take time to help your fellow man,
he sorely needs it and it will help you too,
eat food that is good for your body,
exercise your body,
take time to destress,
and do the important things
that make a difference -
they are rarely the urgent ones!
