there was once a garden where ruins lie 

Can there be such a thing as a quiet uproar? Unrelenting propaganda shouts with desperate double standards apparent – my child’s life is worth more than yours. This is Israel’s stance in a measured slaughter that they try to dignify by calling it a war. 

Zionism, a political ideology closer to Nazism than is comfortable for most to recognise, is separate to Judaism as the Torah Jews in the short video below make clear.

As for Chosen people and the burden it places upon believers in this idea – it doesn’t mean you’re special, able to do whatever you want, destined to rule the world – human nature hasn’t been changed by virtue of this idea while birth and death come to all, special or not.

These are not issues fresh to my mind, a mind which has been occupied territory for decades. The truth is a fierce creature. Make any tribe a chosen people or a master race and the dehumanisation of others naturally follows and so it has been in recorded history and continues to be.

Anyway – both short videos below are very clear statements by those intimately involved in these matters.

I add my small voice and make way for them.



how craven our leaders are 

even a voice such as mine, tiny in influence, doesn't escape notice as an email arrives, vaguely threatening no doubt because I will speak out about the glaring deceits we're fed - in this case the horrors of Gaza, not a war, how can it be?

I don't know how long Chris Hedges' reports will continue to be seen. This is, as usual, a timely piece.

meanwhile there is a wider Universe 

Grief may well be close to universal within the human family but humanity is not. Witness the difference in views on Israel and the Palestinians. As to who has the power – it is Israel which controls and now cuts off water, food and electricity to the Gaza Strip. Starve the Palestinians if they don’t die of thirst first. “Failure of intelligence” doesn’t begin to describe the situation.

Who wrote Shakespeare …. Edward de Vere if the evidence is looked at but a thriving tourist trade exists around the man from Stratford. It’s a Disneyland version of reality just as is the treatment of the Welsh genealogies wherein the two King Arthurs lie. There are other issues where the truth is covered or voices silenced. 

The smoking gun of Building 7 on the day of 9/11, Britain’s hidden history and why it is so, and while climate change is real in the emotional and mental state of all our societies, CO2 is not the issue and never has been. 

NATO  had no reason to exist after the collapse of the Soviet Union but continues because other agendas work in which Ukraine is cannon fodder in a proxy war between the U.S.A. and Russia .… all these issues have lies covering truth.

Here in Australia the referendum regarding an advisory body designed to give Aboriginal Australians a voice is framed as something sinister. I don’t see the problem and voted yes. 

Difficult times, trials and tribulations. Nothing particularly new nor occurring by accident.


the remarkable Bradshaw paintings 

I came across mention of this rock art years ago - quite different to other rock art in Australia. The video below is old but new to me. Reminds of the New Zealand documentary ‘Skeletons in the cupboard’ which opened my eyes to a history of that country not much mentioned. 

remembering 9/11 

Architects, Engineers for ‘9/11 Truth.’ 

Who cares and what particular ‘truth.’ If there’s nothing to question about the official story then why do these thousands of professionals continue to present evidence to a generally uncaring world as if it really matters.

It does matter. It’s the defining event of this century, millions dead, societies destroyed, the world changed in its course and the whole event manipulated to arouse ‘shock and awe’ in the American population who, up until that day, had no interest in the foreign wars so desired by the hawks within the U.S. administration.

The Project for a New American Century lays out what events were needed in order for American to retain its pre-eminent position in the world.

Evil men in positions of power … not evil in their own minds perhaps but … ‘by their fruits you shall know them.’

Following the evidence IS the scientific method. It’s unpalatable but there it is ………….‘Lest we forget……..’

'YES' to the Voice 

Apart from suspicion that it may not work or that Treaty and Truth Telling have greater importance it's hard to see quite why there's opposition to a YES vote in the upcoming referendum here in Australia.

For Australians.

I can do better than this – I can be better than this. When I arrived in this land over fifty years ago it was as an immigrant. If this isn’t part of your family story then you’re Aboriginal, the Original people, the ones our ancestors pretended didn’t count for anything. 

“In 1962 the Australian Parliament passed a landmark Act to give all Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people the option to enrol and vote in federal elections. But it was not until 1984 that Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people were finally treated like other voters and required to enrol and vote in elections.”

In 1975 I had the rare opportunity to work and live, 24 hours a day for about three months, with two groups of tribal men who were brought together by the Arts Council of N.S.W. with the aim and purpose of bringing some sense of Aboriginal culture to Primary schools across N.S.W. It was a profound and somewhat heart breaking experience.

“Culture? Where are their cathedrals?” – this echoes my dad’s understanding of Aboriginal culture – if you can’t see it in the material world then it doesn’t exist. He saw a broken people without having any understanding of what actions by our ancestors led to the situation now existing. Strange indeed as the substance in his ceremonies isn’t visible either.

They’re not a broken people but trauma with all its attending aspects can’t be denied and it’s inter-generational. This is something that many of us know and endure.

The last twenty years or so of my working life was within the Disability field in which I was a key worker – I advocated for my clients and did so with an intimate understanding of their needs and wants.

Who better to advocate for Aboriginal people than an advisory body made up of Aboriginal people with that same intimate knowledge of needs and wants. 

Do they speak with one voice? No more than any other group of human beings but that shouldn’t be reason to deny that voice the chance to exist and speak.

We can do better than that.

the Federal Reserve - from whence it came 

It was Eustace Mullins who introduced me to the history of the Federal Reserve. G.Edward Griffin wrote 'The Creature from Jekyll Island' which added detail for me but it's been James Corbett who delves deep enough to correct errors in the narrative.

It's a great shame that Bandzoogle don't support media other than youtube in a simple manner so the link is provided. If you're not familiar with James you could also look for ‘The Corbett Report.’

I've long wanted to present his meticulous work.

Aboriginal Australia and 'The Voice.' 

These are the key points. The case for YES is clear and I will vote accordingly. The case for NO isn’t clear and the key points can be countered which I’ll attempt to do.



  • The Voice was recommended after a years-long engagement with Indigenous communities across Australia.
  • Indigenous people should have a say in policies that affect them.
  • If the government listens to Indigenous people as it creates policies about them, the policies will be better.
  • It will be permanent, and future governments won't be able to remove it.
  • Ensuring the Voice can speak to "executive government" means its central role is entrenched, regardless of future governments.
  • It will be gender equal and include youth members, meaning more voices from Indigenous communities will be heard.
  • It has been carefully devised and given the green light by legal experts.
  • Fixed terms mean representatives will always be accountable.
  • The Voice would be a good mechanism through which to negotiate Truth and Treaty processes with the Commonwealth. 
  • Parliament, and by extension the Australian people, would still hold the ultimate say over what becomes law.


  • It's symbolic, and fixing systemic issues facing Indigenous communities would require a body with actual power. 

‘It’s symbolic” is opinion only. 

  • Governments can ignore its advice if they don't like it.

Governments already do this and it’s not necessarily a bad thing.

  • The Voice adds race to the constitution.

What’s wrong with acknowledging reality - Aboriginals are not only another race just as are Asians and Europeans but are our Original race in Australia and deserve to be recognised and heard.

  • Because the Voice will be designed by parliament, future governments could change or sideline it.

Design it so that this doesn’t happen.

  • Indigenous people already have a voice via an unprecedented level of Indigenous representation in parliament.

Aboriginals no more speak with one voice than do the rest of us. Representatives come and go while ‘The Voice’ would remain.

  • Truth and Treaty should come before the Voice. 

Why? Says who and based on what - other than opinion?
