A Sermon For the Ears of Scott Morrison


Acting-Prime Minister Scott Morrison (for all Prime Ministers act only until they are replaced, by the people or by their own party) do you recognise these words?

From my faith I derive the values of loving kindness, justice and righteousness, to act with compassion and kindness, acknowledging our common humanity and to consider the welfare of others . . . These are my principles

These were the words that came out of your lying, corrupt mouth during your self-serving and delusional maiden speech in the House of Representatives on 14th February, 2008. Some thirteen years of corruption ago!

As the disciple Matthew said in that Book you claim to revere and follow, ‘By your actions, so handshall you be judged.

And what actions have we seen? We will ignore the way you destroyed Michael Towke’s life to make your way into Parliament. Of course he is a Lebanese and so lacks that ‘common humanity‘ you promised to respect. May your God have mercy on your soul.

Shall we begin by remembering the way you so famously stopped the boats. With the best of intentions. Saving refugees from drowning. Only to rebrand them ‘Illegal Immigrants’ and consign them to offshore camps which are indistinguishable from the Concentration Camps so often used by nations to hide inconvenient people from sight. And then allowing them to die by their own hand or by medical neglect. Acting with ‘compassion and kindness‘ in that mostly forgotten maiden speech. May your God have mercy on your soul.

Then there was Robodebt, a scheme to defraud the poorest amongst us. Driving many to suicide and many more further into the penury our Social Security system is supposed to avert. Carefully avoiding considering the welfare of others. May your God have mercy on your soul.

More recently there was the so-called ‘Sports Rorts’ affair. Like attracts like and criminality attracts criminality so it is no surprise to see that those closest to you are also careless with facts and truth and the Law. Taking from the deserving and giving to the undeserving. A classic case of not caring for justice and righteousness. May your God have mercy on your soul.

Of course, you, Scott Morrison, may claim all that is simply politics and has no impact on your faith and on your private life. Yet it was you who decided that your wife and help-meet could not cope with her own life while you spent time in Canberra. Having spent a life caring for you and cleaving only to you as a handmaid it seems she had no friends, no support for herself and so you chose to pay someone some two thousand dollars a week to be her professional friend. It seems your ‘Jen’, who you so love to quote for her wisdom, is incapable of looking after herself. So that is the result of your loving kindness. May your God have mercy on your soul.

And now the Government you lead, and the Ministers you have appointed, have allowed a three year old girl under your control, to develop sepsis. Your people refused even the most basic of pain and fever control until it was necessary to fly her to the mainland to save her life and so separate her from her family. It would appear that the death of this young girl, and possibly the future death of her sister will be useful to you for it will allow their parents to be deported with no legal hindrance. To act with compassion and kindness, acknowledging our common humanity and to consider the welfare of others.’  May your God have mercy on your soul for few of the voters in Australia who have children of their own will show mercy to you and your Government!

I shall leave you, worshipper of a God I do not recognise with the words written in the Book you revere. They are found in Jeremiah 34:17.

‘Therefore this is what the LORD says: You have not obeyed Me; you have not proclaimed freedom, each man for his brother and for his neighbor. So now I proclaim freedom for you, declares the LORD–freedom to fall by sword, by plague, and by famine! I will make you a horror to all the kingdoms of the earth.

Have We Found Bruce Lehrmann?


Some time ago, now safely out of the memory of the average Australian, a political staffer working for Linda Reynolds, named Bruce Lerhmann was accused of rape inside Parliament House by Ms Higgins, a fellow staffer. The moment the matter went public, Mr Lehrmann disappeared.

There were rumours that he had returned to Texas to be with his parents. His mother is on the bench of the Texas State Court.

He has proved to be untraceable but information surfaced today which may solve the mystery.

That information was based on this.

May be an image of text that says 'Index of contact profiles from Parker & Partners 1-7 of results Contact Name Bruce Lehrmann Contact Info Email Job Title Direct Senior Account Manager Location Australia, Australian Capital Territory, Barton Last Update 4/23/2021'

The link to that page is now inactive yet, according to some social media people, it was still active this morning. An inspection of the home page for the above entry shows that it is a slick and very well presented website with several subordinate pages.

 https://www.p-p.com.au/

The six subordinate pages are fairly standard and five of them are operable and work very well.
The exception is the ‘Our People’ page. It is suddenly not available.

Although this does NOT locate the missing Staffer with certainty. The page could be a forgery or the person named as Bruce Lerhmann could be a different person to the political staffer, perhaps further investigations could find the facts and verify that Bruce Lehrmann has been found!

Could it be that the sudden disappearance of that page could indicate a sudden resignation from the firm of Parker and Partners.

UPDATE

This may be the reason the ‘Our People Page was withdrawn. Found on the Twitter account of Marie @mariewalsh18

Marise Payne – Soon to be Prime Minister?


Having been Minister for Foreign Affairs in the Morrison Government since 2018, and was also appointed Minister for Women in 2019, and with a looming leadership crisis within the Federal Liberal Party, there is a possibility that Marise Payne may be elected leader. Although Payne is a Senator there is a precedent. Senator Gorton was elected leader, became Prime Minister and was then successfully elected to the Lower House in a by-election. Good Grief! Was that in 1968? Nearly 50 years ago!

Payne has a number of advantages over Peter Dutton, the obvious Morrison replacement now that Porter has lost his place at the head of the queue.

First and foremost, she is not universally disliked and mistrusted. Peter Dutton carries a lot of very negative baggage and would be a severe electoral disadvantage for the Liberal Party. This would probably still be true even with a major Murdoch campaign to turn him into the guy next door.

Secondly, there is a spreading panic within Liberal Parties across Australia following the McGowan Landslide in Western Australia. The first signs have begun to appear with a snap spill in the Victorian party room.

Thirdly, she is a woman in the midst of a Women-led protest at the age old gender status quo.The potential for her to reclaim the Liberal female vote is great. After all, it worked with Julia Gillard. And Payne is also a redhead!

Fourthly, as the ‘yes-woman’ she has become, the men who will promote her know that she will do as she is told. She may not iron shirts for the party leadership but she would be trusted to keep the seat warm while a more electable male is groomed.

THINKING ABOUT CHINA


I looked at the attached, poorly photoshopped, image tweeted out by the Chinese Government today.

My mind goes back to the horrendous cartoons published in the German press demonising the Jewish people in the 1930’s. They prepared the ground for what eventually became WW2.

Now it is Australians who are being demonised by the Chinese. It could be seen as an opportunistic addition to the Trade War which is currently being waged on Australia in retaliation for our Trump-supporting Prime Minister’s demands for investigations into the origins of the COVID-19 virus.

We have been told in no uncertain terms not to interfere in China’s internal affairs. Yet here we are. At the first opportunity, China not only interferes in Australia’s internal affairs but also sets about portraying ALL Australians as child murdering monsters. Yet any mention of the Uyghur or Tibetan genocides must not be mentioned because it hasn’t happened and anyway it is an internal Chinese matter.

It is hard to avoid the feeling that China would find Australia, a vital source of both raw materials and high quality agricultural products, much easier to deal with if it was just another province of the Chinese hegemony.

Cruel cartoons and inhuman images were used during WW1, the Boer War and the Napoleonic Wars. They have probably been used in most wars throughout human history. The composite image of the ‘enemy’ in the mind of a nation is what allows a Ruler to convince those people to slaughter ‘the enemy’.

Australians are currently being demonised by China.

I wonder just what will the conquest of Australia be called in the history books of 2120?

A Tale of Two Slogans


I am sorry if this affects you badly. Memories of past atrocities can be offensive.

It is meant as a warning, as a sombre reflection on what is happening in our society today. Concentration camps did not begin with gas chambers (The British started them during the Napoleonic Wars) Yet the carelessness for human life grew as the camps became commonplace in The Nazi Empire.

That carelessness for human life is beginning to show in our Australian society.

In the Refugee ‘facilities’, in our ‘care’ for the unemployed, in our Aged Care ‘Homes’, . Unless we, as a nation rise up and say, ‘ALL our people are valuable. All humans have worth.‘ then we are committing our nation to a path which I dare not contemplate.

They imprisoned the Refugees and I said nothing because I was not a refugee.

They forced the unemployed into crime, prostitution and drugs but I said nothing because I was employed.

They imprisoned the aged in understaffed, underfunded institutions and starved them but I said nothing because I was not old. But I accidentally lived long enough and the Old caught up with me!
