On November 3, 2015 Dee McLachlan wrote a rippin’ mad article at Gumshoe entitled “Derryn Hinch Supports the Washington Syria Script.” Happily, it stirred the readers, who sent in 72 comments.
Christopher Brooks emailed “Hinchi,” the offending journalist, with Dee’s question: “What is your obligation, as a media professional, for furnishing evidence that Assad used chemical weapons — as you say he did?” Hinchi replied “I don’t hafta.” Actually his words were not quite that ungrammatical – I’m paraphrasing.
The title of the article at hand, “Yes, You Hafta,” is my rejoinder to Derryn Hinch and all his colleagues. Yes, you definitely hafta. Is that because the Press Council says so? Stuff the Press Council. Who cares what a whitewash entity says?
(See the APC’s rejection of Keith Noble’s formal complaint about the outrageous slandering of Martin Bryant.)
You hafta because you hafta. Google for “the Fourth Estate.” You’ll feel nice!
Judges Hafta, Too. Who Ever Said Otherwise?
One of our readers at Gumshoe, a barrister, has said that most judges in Australia know that Martin Bryant (now age 48) is innocent. Of course they do. And what’s more important, they know who is guilty.
They, the judges, need to come forward. Yes, come on; get it over with. Note: each judge takes home a big salary. I happened to see a document the other day that established the pay in 1922 for South Australian judges at 2,000 pounds a year. That was probably a fortune back then.
Why are judicial pay-packets so pudgy? It’s hush money. Logically, there’d have to be hush money if our Overlords, the cabal, want to stay afloat!
They need judges to look the other way when the Overlords murder 35 people at Port Arthur, for purposes of panicking the public. (Dr Richard Day adumbrated that in his 1969 speech, for Pete’s sake.)
There have to be judges who won’t open their dear mouths – ever – about the deaths in custody of prisoners in Australia, especially Aboriginal men. “Ho hum. You know how it is, that sort of thing happens. Don’t look at me!”
But I am looking at you, Enrobed Ones. You absolutely hafta. And you know it.
How About the Governor General?
It goes against my grain to criticise the GG. I consider the monarchy sacred. That is why we have a king – he or she stands for the right (and in our minds, stands for society). In my view, society and the right are the same thing.
However, the Australian situation is confusing. In Canada, Her Maj is queen and is even the commander-in-chief of Canada’s armed forces (should there still be any of those, après Northcom).
“The Crown” has a role to play in 15 ex-colonial countries. That doesn’t include the ex-colonial country into which I was born, and over which Queen Hillary will reign next year.
Now then, does the Oz Governor General “hafta”? I say yes. How can we claim to have a person occupying an important position and then say “Oh, but it’s a fiction, pay it no mind.” Daftaroonie, right? Let’s think how the GG might help us by manning up to some of our current problems.
The Australia Act of 1986 removed from London the constitution of this country. In other words, the authority of the Australian Constitution now lies somewhere between the Pacific Ocean and the Indian Ocean, not near the Channel Tunnel.
That’s a help. But where does the GG fit? In Chapter I, Part I, Section 2 of the Constitution, we find:
“A Governor-General appointed by the Queen shall be Her Majesty’s representative in the Commonwealth, and shall have and may exercise in the Commonwealth during the Queen’s pleasure, but subject to this Constitution, such powers and functions of the Queen as Her Majesty may be pleased to assign to him.”
GG – Is You Is, Or Is You Ain’t?
Royal assent is required before any bill can become law. Sounds like a biggie to me. Are there any laws you don’t like, such as the anti-terrorism secret-tyranny bill of 2007?
Or the George Brandis special of 2014 (cf “Bella Vista incident”) that will keep secret all SOG operations?
Oops, was Port Arthur an SOG? Was it “the massacre we had to have”?
Why blame Brandis? Without the Governor General’s signature (Sir Peter Cosgrove), it would’ve been dead in the water. One wonders how a GG decides which bills to approve.
Remember the song by Louis Jordan “Is You Is or Is You Ain’t My Baby?” Well, I want to ask Australia’s Governor General: Is you is, or is you ain’t, a leader of this nation? (And, by the way, as commander-in-chief of the ADF, did you advise us to bomb Syria?)
On October 28, 2015, I attended Senator Nick Xenophon’s speech at the Commonwealth Club of Adelaide. He said he might propose that South Australia become a sort of republic. Well, actually he only mentioned “an elected head of state.” This could at least make for discussion of constitutional duties. Yay!
Do Pollies Vaccinate Their Children?
I was told a while ago, by a ‘birdie,’ that some selected parliamentarians have been allowed to pose as Acting Prime Minister for 24 hours, only in order to claim it as an enhancer of their superannuation package. (What, we may ask, is an elected person doing getting a ‘retirement’ allowance of any kind?)
I promised I would check on it. The Remuneration Tribunal told me to ask someone else. I didn’t (yet) because I haven’t got the heart to find out if it’s true. Whaddya reckon? Would any of them do that? I don’t know.
Anyway it’s only money, but passing a bill that says vax-evaders lose their Centrelink payment is not. Forced vaccination must be – at the very least – the crime of assault.
Senator and Reps: you hafta. You hafta repeal that legislation immediately.
All of you, you hafta because you hafta. I don’t think I can be any more specific than that.
Oh wait, I can offer an “incentive”:
You hafta, because not to would be to engage in fraud or cover-up or other obstruction of justice and you don’t want to spend the next few years in Risdon Prison, or other suitable place of punishment, do you?
With or without the chocolate.
