  • OT - Climate Of DeCeption? - Funding Of A Referendum A Scam? 2 comments
    Feb 22, 2013 7:55 PM

    Here in Australia, Government is stealing our tax money and is funding favourable reports (along with the UN's Agenda21 Global/Local plan), to then use these false reports - as a base to raise even more taxes.

    A One World Government

    More tax collected effectively bank-rolls a planned UN "Sustainability" (world) program, across our entire nation. (Across the entire globe.)

    This draconian radical change to people's lives will soon, all get to be 'governed' (globally) through or, by local bodies or, municipal councils.

    They will then be 'empowered' to make and get to administer many new laws and will enforce them - onto all the people of the world.

    And all will be mostly funded by a carbon emission's taxation. (A total of $150 billion in Carbon Tax over 10 years will now be paid/collected from the people, here in Australia.)

    Australia's Major Problem

    The Australian Constitution does not recognize or, make any mention of our 'Local' Councils. (That operate as pseudo, Local Governments.)

    The (established in 1901) Australian Constitution is the people's only protection from bad governments, in our country's democratic process.

    To gain this necessary recognition will require the people's approval in or, via a Referendum. (Forty-four proposals to amend the Constitution have been voted on at referendums of which only eight have been approved.)

    In Australia, Governments have already had two 'failed' attempts (in 1974 and 1988) to rectify this situation-within TWO referendums held.

    The following notes (and links, as provided) clearly show (I feel) that Govt's at all levels will be using all their might/resources and will likely be (once again) very 'well funded' by (yes, you guessed it), the very people that a (this) change in the Australian Constitution, will directly effect.

    Climate Of DeCeption? - Funding Of the Referendum a Scam?

    (Behind the scenes - as busy as Bees? Worth considering is that the people haven't ask for or, been consulted about - any of this!)

    ..."The referendum would ask Australians to amend Section 96 of the Constitution.

    [ The referendum put would propose that Section 96 be amended to read:.

    ........................"the Parliament may grant financial assistance to any State or to any local government body formed by State or Territory legislation on such terms and conditions as the Parliament thinks fit".]

    This would guarantee federal government powers to directly fund essential community programs and infrastructure."

    ...The Joint Select Committee on Constitutional Recognition of Local Government has endorsed the form of words proposed by the Expert Panel on Constitutional Recognition of Local Government to form the basis for negotiations.

    The committee has also recommended a referendum panel of experts and key public figures be formed to oversee campaigning and funding for groups to ensure the success of the referendum.

    ........The background to the Panel's work was the Constitution's omission of any mention of local government, and the question of whether local government should be recognised in this founding legal and political document - the basis for our laws and political system.

    Funding of a ('normal') Referendum

    Australian Electoral Commission

    1999 Referendum

    National advertising campaigns for and against the republic

    The government appointed 'Yes' and 'No' committees to conduct national advertising campaigns to promote the arguments for and against the proposed republic model.

    Each committee was allocated up to $7.5 million, with the members drawn from delegates of the 1998 Constitutional Convention.

    The advertising campaigns were run in the weeks before polling day.

    See: Public Information Campaign - Australian Electoral Commission


    Funding for THIS proposed Referendum? (Financial & resources?)

    This Referendum appeal to the people for change (Note: two previous attempts at this - as above), the Govt is leaving no stone unturned.

    ALGA addresses second hearing into 2013 referendum

    The committee's preliminary report and the recommendations of a previous Expert Panel report recognised several preconditions for referendum success:

    • the need for strong bipartisan support;
    • the Commonwealth negotiating with state and territory governments to achieve their support for financial recognition;
    • a public information campaign to achieve informed and positive community engagement; and
    • changes to the referendum process to allow public funding of referendum campaigns.

    ......"We are now less than seven months out from a referendum if one is to be held at the time of a federal election and we have previously raised concerns about the limited time available for making the necessary changes to the Commonwealth legislation which governs referendum processes," Mayor Lewis said.

    Local Government Minister, Simon Crean, has assured ALGA there is enough time to meet the preconditions and he gave strong assurances that the referendum could go ahead.

    Why we (people of our world) need a One World Government?

    Here's the only real basis for which this (ultimate) GLOBAL (one World) Government is being justified as a 'must-have'- to 'save' our planet?

    Climate of DeCeption?.. or first step to freeDom?-Malcolm Roberts

    ....."This document and its appendices are provided in good faith and without malice or ill will.....It analyses public claims made primarily by advocates in public functions funded by government using the public purse."


    ........"I've written to many of the people whose behaviours, opinions and/or claims are discussed in this report and whose core claim is that human carbon dioxide (Co2) caused earth's latest modest cyclic global atmospheric warming-that ended in 1998.

    Most have responded.

    All have failed to provide empirical scientific evidence and logical scientific reasoning for the basis of their core claim.

    All seemed reluctant to address my questions adequately. They failed to meet my reasonable need for integrity, reassurance and understanding."


    "My report is based on five years' voluntary research and investigation to protect my family and taxpayers affected by serious issues raised in this report as a result of activities and claims of people funded by taxpayers.

    It's based on facts and is contextually true."

    IPCC - Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change

    The IPCC assesses the scientific, technical and socio-economic information relevant for the understanding of the risk of human-induced climate change.

    The Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (NASDAQ:IPCC) is the leading international body for the assessment of climate change. ........ It was established by the United Nations Environment Programme (UNEP) and the World Meteorological Organization (WMO) in 1988 to provide the world with a clear scientific view on the current state of knowledge in climate change and its potential environmental and socio-economic impacts.

    In the same year, the UN General Assembly endorsed the action by WMO and UNEP in jointly establishing the IPCC.


    Final Comment

    It amazes me and how sad it is, that people in Govts at all levels in all countries and in particular those who represent ordinary hard working people, in Local Councils -- are prepared to actually want to 'sell-out' their own flesh and blood- their families, to such a dark future, ahead.

    WTF is this world coming to?

    Always, only an opinion.



    pps; What is Sustainable Development?

    According to its authors, the objective of sustainable development is to integrate economic, social and environmental policies in order to achieve reduced consumption, social equity, and the preservation and restoration of biodiversity.

    Sustainablists insist that every societal decision be based on environmental impact, focusing on three components; global land use, global education, and global population control and reduction.

    From a Facebook thread is the following 'conversation', that readers may well find of interest.


    Sue Maynes for Local Council:
    Interesting post Ross - people may not be aware that local councils in parts of NSW are levying $18,000 per shire on rate-payers - to go to the local govt association - in order to fund the manipulation of the people so they will give a yes vote to loc...See More

    Agree completely with you Sue. I think that it borders on being an act of TREASON. Certainly when it is considered - - - that the people being asked to change the constitution, have not ask for nor, have they been consulted about - any of this!

    Sue Maynes for Local Council:
    The other thing I noted in that link Ross, was the comments on actually changing the referendum process.


    When is everyone going to recognize that WE the People made the rules by which government are supposed to operate? That does NOT allow government to change those rules just because THEY feel like it. They work for US.

    ABSOLUTELY! There is scant regard for - and people continue to want to act in contempt of, the Constitution. And I'm sure that Queen Victoria would be frowning from her grave too, about all this!

    Does THIS make her a "screw-ball", conspiracy theorist? :)
