“WE ARE THE MASTERS AND WE’RE HERE TO PROTECT YOU FROM YOURSELVES” – and if we pick up some revenue in the process – too bloody bad for you.

A stop press situation -
The CH team were well on their way through researching an article about the ‘rule of law’ – or more precisely some examples on the face of the record proving that it doesn’t exist in God’s Own State when the email, below, arrived from a bloke who hadn’t been in contact with the NON Farmer since 2006.
It may be that those behind this message are probably overreacting since they are of a peer group that has caused ‘what passes for government’ a fair deal of nausea for about the last 35 years.

But here they are again, conscripts and volunteers alike, pretending they have some right to raise issue about the conduct of our highly trained, principled and oh so pro-active government employees.

Now what it is about these VietNam vets has us completely beat.

They’ve never worked out that their job finished in the earlier half of the 1970s when the last of them returned to Australia.

Once back here they were supposed to knuckle down and quietly take up some suitable  work where their scars, both physical and mental, were out of sight and mind of the rest of we citizens.

Oh, Anzac Day’s fine – so the solid citizens reckon.
Once a year at the rissole or the Depot - getting pissed blind is perfectly okay.
After all, the dead Japs ‘n Gooks are easy to hose out afterwards.

Yet here they are once again making use of their information ‘grapevine’ to meddle with the affairs of governance as if, by fighting a war for the ‘masters’ of their day, they had some God given right to do so.

But we’re dickheads at Calligula’s Horse.
Not only do we reckon that they do have a God given right to whinge and bellyache about what they like but we SUPPORT that right, especially when it’s justified and in the public interest.

So here goes – and is followed by another incident of official insanity linked by url.
Please read both and if you have any care at all, please send along your experience in comment.

If someone sent you a self addressed letter detailing a situation precisely then asking questions about that situation – would you answer it if it was within your domain?
If you had to send such a letter to the beekeeper would you expect a response?
What if it was you writing the letter expecting a response about something more important from, say, a minister of state?

Something like –
Mr. B. Buzzbee
Proprieter/Sole Trader,
“Buzzbee Honeys R Us” ™
Of - Etc, Etc.
Dear Sir,
I note that you are the beekeeper who had placed your hives immediately next to my residence.
I know that for a fact since I recorded your name and address from your vehicle when you first set up those hives in locations I had determined as far too close to my home.
At the time I asked you to consider that your hives were too close to my residence.
Your response was that –
  • they were only harmless bees
  • I couldn’t dictate to a beekeeper where he could or couldn’t place his hives
  • responsible beekeepers look after their hives and therefore there won’t be a problem
  • If any problems occur I was to contact you as soon as possible
  • You complied with - - the beekeepers code of practice, Qld
You would also recall my phonecalls on occasions  xxxx, yyyy and zzzz when I contacted you to let you know that your hives have swarmed and have established new hives respectively in my shed, my patio and now my bathroom.

In short I am satisfied beyond doubt that –
  • you are the beekeeper at question
  • the bees I mention are yours and therefore of your responsibility, within your duty of care
  • I have taken reasonable and timely steps to inform you that your bees have been causing myself and my family unnecessary stress, inconvenience and detriment.
  • you have failed your duty of care by neglecting your hives - causing their swarming
  • you have failed your duty of care by situating your hives in unsafe locations
  • you have failed your duty of care by locating them unnecessarily close to my home against my express objections
  • you willfully misrepresented your intentions by falsely citing the beekeepers code of practice, Qld as a compliance document mandating certain timely action on your part
It has now become necessary to inform you that a member of my family was attacked yesterday by a swarm of your bees while inside our home and has, as a result  been admitted to hospital and the prognosis is   

Okay; the letter could continue describing the fate of the person beestung and the  resultant itemised demands for immediate satisfaction from the householder.
Every beekeeper I’ve known has been all too aware of the consequences of neglect of, or negligence with their hives; that receipt of their worst dream, a letter similar to the above is something to be avoided like the plague.
Beekeepers I’ve known avoid letters like that by various, usually pre-emptive, management methods –
  • knowledge – never knew a beekeeper who stopped learning or closed their mind to information
  • care – beekeepers who stop caring cease being beekeepers – often at the bees’ decision
  • caution – badly or annoyingly situated hives go missing – part of the learning curve
  • consultation – leads to well placed hives, healthy bees and happy neighbours
  • rapid response – often pre-emptive, allays concern, prevents complaint
  • good relations – beekeepers are into intelligence gathering – the lay of the land, flora and fauna, nearby crops and activities
  • education – good beekeepers having to learn all the above aren’t averse to sharing it with those who ask (or just happened to be standing nearby)
  • good product – by nature sells itself and by abiding by the steps above promotes good will

And as it is for good beekeepers so it is in most other successful enterprises – a little knowledge, care, responsibility and consideration goes a very long way.

But if I told you that this was an exercise at getting you, the reader, to have a slantwise look at the failings of our governments – you’d immediately become reasonably pissed off.
Fortunately nothing is further from the truth
All I’ll say is that you’d have to be a pretty bloody incompetent and unethical beekeeper to dump your little employees in someone’s face – to be so blind to the considerations of your own occupation and that of the effected householder that you caused that much harm.

But isn’t that exactly what ‘what passes for government’ does to people every day?
Isn’t it true that when detriment is caused and complaint made we are asked to “put it in writing, preferably ‘dot-pointed’ as briefly as possible – so the minister can understand your complaint”?
Isn’t it true whether you do that as requested or create a long, detailed and precise account that you never receive an adequate response?
Isn’t it true that if you push the matter for all you’re worth they still obfuscate and tell you that, other than litigation, your options are closed?
Doesn’t that mean they are operating outside the law?

If you don’t believe so; if you are okay both with politicians and errant beekeepers doing whatever they like on your side of the fence as well as theirs then you are a damned fool and deserve what politicians and suburban beekeepers will be dumping on your head soon.

Disclaimer –
Nothing here is intended or implied as criticism of, or insult to, our apiarists – on the contrary it is intended as fair comment about the parlous state of our alleged democracy. If any apiarists out there have a night job as politician – then they should quit beekeeping, stop mixing their occupations and most importantly, stop treating Australians like brainless bloody insects.

“Man proceeds in a fog. But when he looks back to judge people of the past, he sees no fog on their path. From his present, which was their far-away future, their path looks perfectly clear to him, good visibility all the way. Looking back he sees the path, he sees the people proceeding, he sees their mistakes, but not the fog.”
Image – A few years later and not quite as shipshape as Matthew Flinders, RN would have kept the original, an alleged replica of his command, ‘HMS Investigator’ complete with ‘Trim’ the ship’s cat, visits our humble port.
‘Alleged’ because she’s figged out more like his ‘HMS Lady Nelson’ – a vessel Flinders rejected as ‘unsuitable for purpose’.
Taut rigging and nicely raked masts, though.
Is that Union flag missing the Cross of St Patrick?

The editorial meeting discussed early age ‘conditioning’ and mental hardwiring; whether it is possible for entire generations to be completely fooled by a confidence trick perpetuated by official control over, say, education and the media.
Inge, Lady Friday chaired the meeting and set the agenda beginning with her recall of schooldays carefully segregated into various seasons and subjects.
All a fair old monologue.

She maintained, despite being the beneficiary of a good non-government education, that much of what should have been her free time was spent in private tutorials providing her information in flat contradiction with the government mandated syllabus.
With certain subjects she enjoyed, maths, history and civics, she insisted the difference was often astoundingly conflicting – enough to play mayhem with her exam results up to and including reading humanities at uni.

When queried about what she meant by ‘seasons’ she said she wasn’t too fond of organized team sport and was required to play this ‘character building’ game in summer and another sort in winter while her requests to set up individual achievement sports like gliding, archery and rifle target shooting were strenuously denied.
Well, that set the scene.

Klaus spoke next with some pearls of wisdom about regimes present and past.

Grinning like the junkyard dog he started with –
“Ah, so you believe that they tried to condition you at school “?
“Well, they did that to the Hitler Youth and to Baden Powell’s Boy Scouts – and I’m sure they’re still doing the same to kids now here, in North Korea, Israel and the USA – so what makes you think that you should miss out on your share of disinformation and conditioning?”

“Consider the USA; would you believe press reports from the states that Elvis is still alive and slinging hamburger in some sleazy dive?
Yet enough Americans believe it and many more support their right to believe that crap and worse.
Now you tell me who wired them up that way and why they would bother?”

“Are you saying we are so stupid that we’d fall for stuff like that” – demanded Arthur.

“Oh go look at yourself Arthur; you’re the bloke who never steps on the joins in the concrete path.
Who put that idea in your head then – and when – or is it some tribal memory?”

“No, what I mean”, says Klaus, “is that some myths just happen out of the blue while others happen and are perpetuated for a reason.
Take Elvis. Without the myth being perpetuated Gracelands would become a crumbling ruin and so would many bank accounts.”

“So when does a myth become a colossal lie?” Inge asks Klaus.

“Well, let’s look at a couple of situations written as fact in our official histories that have been exposed as myths by guests of Phillip Adams on his LNL radio show.
One has to do with the Nazi concentration camps and the small point that they were not dedicated death camps. The guest author is not a holocaust denier by any means but felt motivated to correct huge factual errors to do with that sorry time.”
Now that one was last night.
On his first show of the year his guest was Professor Alan Frost of Latrobe U., a specialist in Australian history.
Prof. Frost wished to advise that his research has disclosed a mass of original documents dealing with the first settlement of Australia, not as a penal colony but rather as an adjunct to Empire involving military facilities and ultimately materiel support for other outpasts of Empire”.

“That’s all well and fine;” says Calligula “but as you know I’ve been writing to John Passant recently about the same subject. Must be Australia Day causing it all”
“But why don’t we do some mythbusting ourselves?”

Let’s start with Joseph Banks. Who was he –
  • Of the gentry
  • Wealthy
  • Well educated
  • A Mason
  • A man of multi-disciplinary science, a polymath
  • A mentor of applied science, especially military materiel applications
  • An industry stakeholder in military procurement
  • Fellow of the Royal Society
  • An advisor to court
  • Ditto to the Admiralty
  • A mentor of discovery

Much more could be said about him; say, his willingness to share the risk of the odd voyage of discovery by embarking himself, the fact that a disproportionate number of his friends and colleagues were involved with interesting activities like military technology and espionage, and that so many schemes he was involved with, apparently beginning as private ventures, concluded successfully as part and parcel of Empire.

Now if that doesn’t describe the world’s all time most successful and influential spy master – then nothing would.

It would be extremely doubtful whether such an intelligent, well informed and self-interested person would lend support to converting New Holland into  a mere penal colony at the outrageous cost of 100 pounds per convict (Alan Frost’s research).

It is unreasonable to pretend that New Holland was the only bit of spare real estate available to the Brits at that time for the establishment of a convict colony.

A really cynical reader of history could readily conclude that if all England needed to do was rid herself of some unwanted unruly population then all that would be necessary would be to pre-empt the next Continental skirmish or ship them off to Ireland.

The true story – The “Great Game”
Britain did not accidentally forge an Empire.
As is so often declaimed these days the Great Game whirls around oil and energy resources.
In the days of Farmer George enough oil came from whales and energy from coal whereas the great game was played over sources of cordage, timber, leather, cloth, saltpetre, sulphur and tar necessary to keep the great ships at sea and ports to replenish them.
A modern Naval strategist is as perfectly aware of the concept of Naval Chokepoints as would Evan Nepean’s advisors.
Britian had made a conscious decision to embark on an incremental campaign of Imperialist expansion.
Naturally enough the Royal Navy had to be the vehicle of that campaign and was fortunate enough to possess human resources skillful and audacious enough to best utilize the limited available materiel resources.
In short men like Joseph Banks and Evan Nepean worked in close collaboration with heroes like James Cook, William Bligh, Matthew Flinders and George Bass in order to establish a military presence and series of naval stations (strategic naval chokepoints) guarding Imperial interests in Southern/South East Asia, the Western Pacific, the Southern and Indian Oceans.
Not a bad job at all, done on the cheap with an ad-hoc flotilla of merchant built vessels and a motley crew of convicts.

But it is Australia day today and instead of the bleeding obvious we have to proceed with the same old myth that keeps us all in our allotted mediocre place.

Firstly, let’s bring you up to speed with qld* governance -
She’s beyond redemption, literally FUBAR, when an entire state of this alleged common-wealth can be signed over to a mob of raffle winners.
Fig 1 – Mr. Beattie dictates at his second regional cabinet meeting in our little burg. We’d just been told that the CMC had been put under police control and that the qld constitution had been amended without the inconvenience of boring referenda, or for that matter even consulting anyone. Note the unconfined joy on every face.

Yes, raffle winners; not the sort of raffle where the average Lucky Joe gets to win a flyblown meat tray once or twice in life – rather the sort of rigged affair where someone chosen from a shortlist of interested mates challenges two or three of similar mindset and inclination in a compulsorily enforced popularity quest.

Multiply that fiasco about 89 times and you get the one stop shop (if your pockets are deep enough) jokingly called ‘queensland parliament’.
Of course there’s about 51 of those bludgers who won first prize (go figure) and call themselves ‘government’.
That 51 argue and blackmail amongst themselves and those who win that undemocratic little spat get to call themselves ‘premier and cabinet’ and gain a license to lock up anyone who disagrees.
Cabinet - - consists of a ‘collective’ about 18 who dictate the lives of about 4.5 million people without fear of any oversight/accountability mechanisms whatsoever.

A neat little situation where any incriminating cabinet documents if ever released under the ‘freedom from information’ bureau would by then be way past the use by date of the statutes of limitations.

But don’t think for a second that it is only the government/majority party that acts this way;
queensland replaced its Legislative Council (senate) with a committee system gracing (bribing) a few ‘acceptable’ members from other parties with a slice of the action; a sop to their egos providing little more than an illusion of influence over events.

It’s a great system when you look at it dispassionately.
A handful of whiteanted ‘political parties’ pushing a Hobson’s choice of ‘candidates’ down the throats of a captive, confused and mostly uncaring populace whose understanding of civics is marginal at best.

The most jaded intellect would realise that such a turnout is travesty; even the ANU has its doubts -

The political advantage of the recent floods will come next year when the political mileage gained from Bligh zipping about playing concerned leader combines with the ‘Stockholm Syndrome’ kicking in amongst the victims as they fight through the red tape while attempting to reclaim their lives.
If Ms. Bligh plays her cards right and suppresses publication of bureaucratic excess well enough she may well be able to slant the post-flood situation to her advantage and achieve another term as Fuhrer of queensland.

Why Fuhrer?
Well, why not. It merely means ‘leader’ but historically retains the tinge of dictatorship.
She certainly ain’t a premier since qld hasn’t had a proper parliament since about 1922 when the upper house was dissolved in what is considered by those who should know an ‘Ultra Vires’ fashion.
If we don’t have a proper parliament then it stands to reason that neither do we have a proper Australian style premier.
When what passes for a federal system condones that then we have no Commonwealth either.

Anyway queensland is such a silly name. Joh (bless his memory) should have changed it to NordReich, or something – then we’d all know where we stand.
Fig 2 – Fuhrer Beattie has the people assembled again four years later in order to have them instructed about the new police powers and responsibilities act and how well it fits in with subjects raised at the last meeting.
Note how carefully the photographer excluded those who had collapsed with rapture following his news.

So what caused this latest fulmination?
The other day Arthur was suffering from cabin fever what with all this flood stuff happening.
And since the devil makes work for idle hands he just had to go digging in old files.

He found an item referring to ‘The Brigalow Corporation’  amongst the NON-FARMER’s files which somehow caught his attention. Arthur being Arthur he had to go googling; probably in the vain hope he’d find pikkies of bikini girls prancing about in a natural setting wearing little else than gum leaves or something.

With that he was unlucky but neither did he expect to discover such a groundswell of reasonable fury that were queensland any sort of democracy an outside auditor would need be appointed to run the place while all the raffle winners were brought to trial.

Now all Arthur had to do was Google “BRIGALOW CORPORATION” and hit a few sites to realize that the usual queensland snow job was in operation apparently with a fair bit of help from Senator Conroy’s team out there in cyberspace.

A fair few remaining documents could only be opened from the cached files while attempts to open official public files all too often had the PC doing “BLING, GLING, Danger, Will Robinson” fits.
(It might be astounding news to some that you don’t have to be Julian Assange to have your PC invaded, pages censored or cop enough heat to encourage you to ‘just walk away’ when a certain amount of digging causes nausea to happen.)

Nevertheless the few pages remaining in the public domain convey a remarkably convincing picture as to why EX-POQ Beattie suddenly had to drop everything and depart to California until the heat died down.
So what did that grinning item, the poor man’s caricature of Teddy Roosevelt, get up to while destroying the last vestiges of the Rule of Law in queensland.

Indeed it is true that amongst other things he converted at the stroke of a pen all of queensland including every Joe Blow’s and Freida Nerk’s back yard into one gynormous corporate park?

At times like this a wealthy person would compile a list of dot-points indicating what’s been so expertly mangled. To do that an immense amount of money would need to be handed over to the ‘freedom from information’ bureau – inevitably, as every journo knows, with unsatisfactory results.

It would be infinitely easier to list what has escaped the predation of the last few queensland regimes except that we run up against the same problem – successive queensland regimes have operated in secrecy and consequently little verifiable information is available to those outside the tontine.

Summary -
The entire situation has honest Queenslanders** innocently wondering what the queensland government corporation thinks it’s about.
Queenslanders are stuck with paying taxes, fees and fines to a secretive regime that apparently has nothing but contempt for those shelling out all that money in the forlorn hope that some benefit will be returned to them in services they’d once customarily received from the state of Queensland and from their once non-politicised/non-corporatised local councils.

Occasionally some of the more civic minded burghers object but are inevitably ‘dismissed’ out of hand by decree of an autocratic premier.
Which leaves the fallback scenario – “when state and commonwealth legislation is in conflict then commonwealth law shall prevail” - another futile argument lending to nothing but a feeding frenzy of legals in the higher courts.

The whole show is a road to nowhere -
If Queenslanders and for that matter all Australians cannot manage to get past their greed reflex they’ll never realize they are being duped by an oligarchy so narrow in mind thought and deed that any form of compromise, accommodation or cooperation is entirely alien to their nature.
For many years now we’ve heard the all the lip service and hot air about uniform national legislation from all tiers of government.
Yet those elected by the populace refuse to represent the populace while hiding behind false constructs surrounding unworkable constitutions.
Beattie has ably demonstrated that constitutions in Australia can be altered on the mere whim of a dozen or so conspirators meeting essentially in secret.
It becomes clear why Australians were denied a referendum about a bill of rights last year.
It seems we are all cut from the same cloth

So what document discovered by Arthur prompted all this -
Here it is below. The NON-FARMER is not a member of any political party, religious denomination nor extremist organization and for the record was ‘permitted’ to meet with the premier for a few minutes early in 2009.
He and his wife sat at a table opposite the premier while a Glock in bumbag wearing goon leaned over them waiting for the slightest excuse to make an arrest. ( A Glock automatic pistol concealed in a bumbag has been the fashion accessory of the queensland palace guard for some years now.)
NON-FARMER and his wife requested a meeting with Ms. Bligh to acquaint her with some facts regarding matters already provided her in writing (including matters mentioned in other articles in this weblog – malfeasance, detriment caused, official misconduct).

But all Madame Bligh could do is offer sympathy for the death of their son and a remarkably Bjelke Petersen style ‘don’t you worry about that’ for the item below.

At least, said the NON-FARMER, Joh would have made it sound sincere.

Dear Queensland Members, Premier and Senators,
Does Queensland have the right to annex or confiscate private property?
Does the Commonwealth, by inaction, condone theft?
Should a Bill be introduced in order to manage the confiscation of the proceeds of patriotism?
The elements compiled below seem to suggest so.
The corporatisation of government is one issue that would be unacceptable to the majority - but the consequences of corporatisation is something that appears to have not been noticed.

I have the Premier listed in the mailing address so that you all might choose to contact her in order to be advised about the veracity of the letter below, from her Staffer, S. Beckett.
"Apr 15th, 2008 at 11:32 am
I have today received a copy of a letter from the Office of the Premier, Queensland Government.
It reads as follows:-
"Thank you for your email dated ----
concerning claims that the State of Queensland has been removed as a State of the Commonwealth of Australia and common law is no longer recognised in Queensland.
I have been requested to reply to you on the Premier's behalf.
The comments in your correspondence have been noted. As these claims are to be considered in a current application before the High Court of Australia, it is inappropriate for the premier to comment at this time.
Again, thank you for bringing your views to the Premier's attention."
Yours sincerely
Stephen Beckett
Deputy Chief of Staff" 

Though these elements copied here result from a search of the net (about the only information resource left) I state that I shall rely upon them in the absence of anything readily available from 'governance'.

It appears that some are convinced beyond doubt that 'corporatisation' has gone too far - that Real Assets have become arbitrarily sequestered without precedent, justification or assent.
Appears they are quite right.

The Premier might consider there is a public perception that the Common Law is being subsumed to a regime of Civil Law without provision of those checks and balances as are necessary for the protection of the rights of Queenslanders.
So what do we have - a Queensland that has corporatised and decentralised the agencies of governance. They now exist as entities registered in the US - with the US Securities and Exchange commission. They are now untouchable and as is becoming noticed, growing increasingly amoral, unethical and irresponsible.
Certainly irresponsible enough to entrust what should be confidential information to cyberspace.

In our circumstance when the corruption has gone so far that police are being used by the state of queensland to stop us, as a still registered family business/defence industry, from making a living - then it has become impossible.
So I take the time this weekend to do research only to find that in the opinion of many Australians most of our elected representatives are traitors.

This document illustrates a small part of what I discovered.

506B Corporation
(1) The Corporation of the Land Administration Commission is continued in existence, as a corporation sole, under the name of the  Brigalow Corporation .
(2) The  Brigalow Corporation --
(a) is a body corporate; and
(b) has a seal; and
(c) may sue and be sued in its corporate name.
(3) The chief executive constitutes the  Brigalow Corporation .
(4) A reference to the Corporation of the Land Administration Commission in any Act or in any document is taken to be a reference to the  Brigalow Corporation .
(5) Judicial notice must be taken of the imprint of the  Brigalow Corporation 's seal appearing on a document and the document must be presumed to have been properly sealed until the contrary is proved.

"QLD is now outside the Commonwealth of Australia as an independent sovereign State without common law, and the people are subject to civil and statute law only. The 'common law and general jurisdiction'; the 'Laws of England to be applied in the administration of justice' and 'equitable jurisdiction' have been removed under the Supreme Court Act 1995(Qld) Reprint number 2A dated 2nd March, 2001 under Schedule 2 of the Constitution of Queensland 2001.

All private equity and inheritance in the State is the property of “the State”, see Corporations (Q) Act 1990 (Q), Reprint No 3, reprinted as in force immediately before 15 July 2001 ©State of Q 2006. All courts, including the Magistrates Courts, are inside the Parliament of QLD.

The jurisdiction of the Supreme Court of QLD is found in the Constitution of Queensland 2001, Part 5 - Powers of the State. Therefore it is assumed that the Judges of the Supreme and District Courts of QLD must protect the 'assets' of the State of QLD and find only in favour of the State, not in favour of the registered owners of private land who have lost, under the statute laws of QLD, the rights to use their fee simple land as they see fit.

The Constitution of Queensland 2001 Chapter 3, Sections 51 & 27 are ultra vires to the Commonwealth of Australia Constitution Act at s109, s106, s107, s51 & s52 of the Referendum (Machinery Provisions) Act 1984 (C’wth). Ultra vires meaning Without authority. An act which is beyond the powers or authority of the person or organization which took it."

Best regards – A NON FARMER
(Full/correct name and address supplied with original)

Further reading – - see chapter 2 part 1 for the core mischief – part 2 etc goes on to detail in its secretive way how the public service has been extinguished and replaced by ‘officers’ of a corporation under the dictation of a minister but from time to convenient time being required to act ‘as’ the minister. (a dictatorship) - funny this - the premier told the NON FARMER (early 2010) that “the situation was being dealt with” – if so then why is Werner still worried? - 26 points summing up the implications - a reasonably well researched resource

* queensland – with reference to the regime illegality does not warrant capitalization
** Queenslanders – are the people of Queensland; an entity and a people apparently unlawfully disposed of by a dictatorial regime
