Wreckers At Work

J.G.Olsen / Financial Expositor

Various higher-ups from the Reserve Bank of Australia are planning on research tours to study how their rapid interest rate rise policy is damaging the economy and impacting on the lives of ordinary citizens, some of whom are being driven to the wall.

Inflation was of course produced by years of money-printing (borrowing from reserve banks), and this made the value of certain currencies of the world drop, to a point where the Oil Producing nations would not supply their product without a hefty price increase, which broke the dam wall holding inflation back. Now the instigators of inflation (politicians) try to blame the war in Ukraine and tell us the solution to all of this is to increase mortgage interest payments to banks.

It is abject nonsense.

How these ineffective and functionally useless business leaders and academics on the RBA board can show their faces on the evening news is beyond me. Ultimately all they do is to ape the moves of the US Federal Reserve.

The purpose of raising interest rates is to “bed in” the inflation they caused, originally by handing over so much freshly printed money to governments, whose officers complement and various liabilities continue to increase as a result, of course at an exponential rate. According to them, the only way to explain this “unexpected” outbreak of inflation is supply chain disruptions brought about by their own Covid program and the nonsense excuse of the  Ukraine war. So for this, mortgagees and following on, tenants, must be punished.

It’s the old blame the victim, which is based on the very common cause-and-effect inversion, which usually satisfies people who don’t know any better.

In another example of this, the Western medical fraternity is especially fond of treating the symptoms, which creates new symptoms, and keeps them in business. In physics and science fiction, they have “retrocausality” which is functionally useless, the correct and most advantageous place is for this type of thing is always in politics where it might have value in deception. There are so many forms of lies, they would fill a book. People as a whole often struggle to understand the reasons for things.

Former PM Paul Keating’s grandiose statement, “We have broken the back of inflation”, came after the inflation of the 1970’s and 80’s was bedded in by massive interest rate hikes. These wrecked the housing market’s prospects for some years and paved the way for former PM John Howard’s various house price boosters. The market was saved! He went on to tell us many times, how rising house prices made everyone happy. Before mid-2000, I can recall a farm for sale in Bunyip, south-east of Melbourne for $20,000 which couldn’t find a buyer. Now, it would sell instantly for ten times that. Under PM Howard, the broken back of inflation was simply transferred into housing. Wages kept eroding relative to everything else except Chinese imports, and this is the effect of diluting currency, which had been going on for decades. It’s wage theft, slow and stealthy. Former PM Bob Hawke had already nobbled the unions.

Some like to think a new BRICS gold-backed currency would save us from dilution, this would likely only be possible under a totalitarian regime, such as the digital prison currently underway.

The government is always at pains to quickly point out that they are “at arm’s length” from the rate increase decisions, but clearly, their arm is long enough to get into the RBA’s pocket and pull out the money.

For some light relief, a few minutes of pork barrelling in East St Kilda is of interest.

The frantic, excessive money printing has been policy since post-GFC, the Obama era Quantitative Easing, another fanciful name for the same old thing, dilution of currency and funding of selected interests.

The early beneficiaries are those closest to government, captains of industry, and those quick off the mark. Recall Kevin Rudd who heard about the moves to privatise the Commonwealth Employment Service and positioned his wife to capitalise on that, reportedly earning her $200 million by the end of the operation.

Government exists, amongst other things, to deliver gifts and favours where required, for the benefit of government office holders.

After those closest to government were drenched with money, they set out to spend it on yachts, mansions, old paintings, and whatever indulgences were available. Eventually, this flowed on in part to the lower classes who finally found their services in demand. Government largesse continued in the form of things like the NDIS, a compensation scheme for vaccine-injured children and other disabled. The inflation pressure slowly built, and finally increases at the petrol pump were the unifying trigger.

The RBA itself has no special reason to want to slow the economy and damage the lives of the marginalised, except to bed in the reduced value of their money, which is what happens when interest rates go up. They actually add to the forces driving prices up until the economy stalls, leaving the dollar at a new level of worthlessness while forcing the unfortunate out of their houses and into some form of inferior accommodation. Nobody in the Reserve Bank will ever be personally affected so it doesn’t matter quite so much, and nobody in government need be affected if they simply hang on to their job with grim desperation, as they are expected to. Public servants can relax knowing that eventually they will have wage adjustments and pay grade adjustments to match the increasing worthlessness of the money used to pay them.

Inflation is like a wave that builds up and comes into the beach, washing all the sand around, but then has to go out again, and sucks the hapless out with it. The entire cycle must be completed, for the money printing to start all over again. The RBA analogy, that their interest rate increases are like shooting bullets at inflation, is nonsense.

While RBA delegates are planning their government-funded jaunts, booking their charter flights, salivating over hotels, and so forth, Globalist Climate Change heroes are doing the same, having endless meetings to try to get themselves into the frame of appearing to do something.

In fact, everything has already been done by technologists and industrialists who have produced so many solar panels in the last decade. The end users who buy and install solar panels have done the work while the government has created nothing except “churn”. We pay tax then we perhaps get some tax back for installing solar panels.

Meanwhile, other branches of government, such as Bodies Corporate try to prevent individuals from installing solar panels. This clash of purposes helps to drive up the size of government, which adds protection to those at the centre and top, who try to delegate any responsibility they possibly can, downward, sideways and outwards.

By now, not so many people believe the CO2-induced Global Warming story, so Climate Change was speedily invented and this also requires a vast number of exotic conference experiences for the chosen few. A new gas has been found to replace CO2 (which itself replaced carbon monoxide by stealth) and this is methane. However, with accelerated self-interest at stake, ranchers discovered that feeding cows seaweed would stop excess methane production. Presumably, they already knew.

While the next replacement gas is sought to blame for weather events and theoretically destroy us all, Bill Gates has not been snoozing. He is now backing cures for cow flatulence to replace abundant natural seaweed, and as you can probably guess, we won’t be safe from the atmosphere until every cow in the world has been injected or otherwise treated. There are more than one billion cows in the world, and in Australia there are more cows than people. The World Health Organisation will be kept busy chasing down cows for their transformational synthetic bromoform and other treatments, potentially with ongoing boosters schedules and if the animal trials for the humanity-saving mRNA treatments are anything to go by, it will be no obstacle if the treated cows end up dead.

According to this story, the ozone layer will possibly be wrecked as well:

Vaccine for cow flatulence is the holy grail:

The objective of factory farming is to feed animals any sort of rubbish obtained as cheaply as possible to produce a marketable product; these materials are as far removed from the animals’ natural diet as processed and prepacked food is from a healthy human diet.

Many will recall Mad Cow Disease, and such possibilities are no obstacle to profiteering, Creutzfeldt-Jakob  disease is the human version:

Seems a high price to pay for Global Warming which so far has evidently been making us cooler. In Melbourne, it is the height of summer and we have just had snow in the ranges.

From fallscreek.com.au Friday 2nd February 2023:

MIN, MAX, PRECIPITATION, OUTLOOK. Friday, -2, 1, 80%, 1-5mm, Mostly cloudy. Mix of rain, snow and sleet. Fresh NW winds.

North west winds – note: that would be straight off the desert in the hottest part of the year.

Now, a conference in midsummer in the snow, would be an experience worthy of posting on social media, and could probably be caused by Russians eating cabbage soup.

Alice Springs Violence: Who Has the Answers?

We are living in an era where social breakdown and moral decay are drawing heavily on the state’s resources and collective wisdom. The elucidative bankruptcy of the state’s ‘wise men’ is being exposed, as surely as it was in the ancient empires of Egypt and Babylon.

The next morning Pharaoh was very disturbed by the dreams. So he called for all the magicians and wise men of Egypt. When Pharaoh told them his dreams, not one of them could tell him what they meant. ~ Genesis 41:8 

The Chaldeans answered the king and said, “There is not a man on earth who can meet the king’s demand, for no great and powerful king has asked such a thing of any magician or enchanter or Chaldean.” ~ Daniel 2:10

Take the very broken town of Alice Springs, for example. Overnight reports of an axe attack on a teenager by three indigenous youth is just one violent incident among countless attacks occurring every day in Alice Springs. Our governments appear at a complete loss as to what to do. The ‘wise men’ have no answers.

Generational Trauma

Years ago, I closely followed the violence that erupted in Aurukun, Queensland when teachers were twice evacuated after children threatened the principal with knives and machetes. Seven years on, Aurukun still resembles a war zone. Recent reports reveal dwindling attendance at the school, the closure of essential services, a council without a CEO, and residents walking the streets with metal fence pickets and crossbows. Many locals are reluctant to leave their homes.

Many of the insights I gained, as I studied Aurukun’s widely discussed demise in 2016, apply to the collapse into chaos of Alice Springs. There is talk of rugby league identities coming to Alice Springs to help in some way. This reminds me of the goodwill demonstrated in 2016 by Australian rugby league player, Johnathan Thurston, when he used a post-State-of-Origin interview to encourage children in the embattled community of Aurukun. “There’s obviously been a lot of trouble up there,” he said, “so to all the students there, I just want you to believe in yourselves and keep turning up to school.” The following day, an Aurukun teacher reported that the children cheered when they heard Thurston reaching out to them.

And yet for all such gestures of goodwill by celebrities like Thurston, and for all the strategising by government agencies, I don’t think all the king’s horses and all the king’s men can put Alice Spring back together again, anymore than they could put Aurukun back together again. A certain wisdom is needed that transcends the most brilliant intellect of fallen men.

Exploitation and Alcoholism

Common to both the demise of Aurukun and the ruin of Alice Springs is the sidelining of the church and the introduction of alcohol. For Aurukun, the decade following the introduction of alcohol was the darkest decade in the history of the community. Herbert Yunkaporta, a pastor born and raised in Aurukun, laments, “I’ll tell you this: the community is asleep. When did they go to sleep? In the mid-eighties. This is a deep crisis. Aurukun needs help.” There must have been a cry of lament in Alice Springs by many Aboriginal elders when alcohol restrictions were removed six months ago.

Insights from the demise of Aurukun can help in understanding the lawlessness on display in Alice Springs. Aurukun’s history is a tragic story that begins with broken promises and broken dreams. It is a story of Goliath-like state and corporate interests outmuscling local and cultural leadership in a greedy grab for Aurukun’s vast bauxite reserves. It was Aurukun’s buried treasure that attracted mining leases and state administrators in the 1970s, followed by the imposition of a wet canteen in the 1980s. In the face of vehement objection by community elders, trucks laden with beer rolled into the town in 1985 and Aurukun took a nosedive.

Faith and Prosperity

It’s hard to imagine that, as recently as 1970, there was no hint of the misery that would engulf Aurukun. Professor Sutton describes his experience of Aurukun in the early 1970s:

Suicide was unknown. People who survived the rigours of infancy and early childhood had a good chance of living to their seventies…

Local men mustered cattle and ran the local butcher shop, logged and sawed the timber for house building, built the housing and other constructions, welded and fixed vehicles in the workshop, and worked in the vegetable gardens, under a minimal set of mission supervisors.

Women not wholly engaged in child-rearing worked in the general store, clothing store, school, hospital and post office.

(The Politics of Suffering, Melbourne University Press, 2010, p. 40)

This somewhat idyllic life, as described by Sutton, was the peaceful and industrious heritage left by the Presbyterian Church and the Archer River Mission Station. Despite being poorly funded, and notwithstanding its shortcomings, the mission station founded in 1904 is remembered for being supportive of Aboriginal rights and self-determination.

Natasha Robinson reports that in 1975, the “progressive [Presbyterian] church was advocating land rights, bilingual education and a return to outstation life.” A Queensland Government report describes the mission superintendents from 1924 to 1965, Rev. Bill Mackenzie and his wife, as being “unusually liberal in their support for their continuation of Bora traditions, traditional hunting and the use of Wik languages.”

Without a doubt, the church played an essential role in laying the platform for the 1970s optimism and social cohesion that existed in Aurukun. There was hope and resourcefulness in the community, a healthy work ethic, a trustworthy moral compass, and emerging cultural leadership.

Secularism and Moral Decay

While it’s not popular to say these days, the church led the Aboriginal community well and was the chief supporter of Aurukun’s journey to self-determination. Tragically, the church would be sidelined as the lucre and liquor interests exploited Aurukun and sabotaged its promising future. This tragedy in Aurukun is not dissimilar to that facing Alice Springs.

There is a direct correlation between social breakdown and moral decay and the sidelining of the church. This is evident in Aurukun, Alice Springs, and indeed in towns and cities across Australia. The church is irreplaceable as both preserving agent and physician. Where the church is maligned and neutralised (as in the case of Joseph in Egypt and Daniel in Babylon), the state finds itself ill-equipped to halt moral decay or heal society’s wounds.

Both ancient and modern history teach us that the silencing and imprisoning of the church is never in the interest of society. Hitler scorched Germany’s soul with his murderous agenda — something he could only achieve with the church rendered dormant. With the exception of lone prophetic voices, like Lutheran pastor Dietrich Bonhoeffer, there was little moral resistance to Hitler. The removal of the church and its prophetic voice left Germany in great darkness.

Greg Sheridan describes the rise of a “new religion of aggressive secularism” that is filling a void in Australia that used to be occupied by the church. While this aggressive secularism is “more self-confident and fundamentalist than ever,” he astutely observes that the western church is nowhere to be seen or heard because, “widespread, prolonged affluence has been more effective than oppression ever was in killing religious belief and practice.”

I know where Sheridan is coming from. While we have not really known tribulation and persecution, the cares of life and the deceitfulness of riches have been effective in choking out the potent Word of God and rendering the western church unfruitful.

Losing Our Savour

Jesus warned about the church losing relevance. He warned that if the salt loses its saltiness, and its preservation qualities are squandered; it is good for nothing except road base (Matthew 5:13). He taught that lamps that no longer provide light must be removed (Revelation 2:5). The western church would do well to heed these warnings and strengthen the things that remain.

In many ways, we have failed in our responsibility to be salt and light in the world. Many young people in the western church have been short-changed. Rather than energising them and capturing their hearts with a truly noble cause to die for, church leaders have fed them entertainment and the merits of upward social mobility.

The church always thrives when it believes and embraces its true mission statement, as taught by Christ himself. “If any man would come after Me, let him deny himself and take up his cross and follow Me.” Self-denial, humility, and servanthood may have never been attractive, worldly ideals but these qualities underpin a satisfying and meaningful life and they give the church relevance.

The church, when true to form, has the power to provide young people with vision and intrinsic motivation for living a purposeful and selfless life. This is what Aurukun had, I believe. And this is what Aurukun and Alice Springs and Australia need today. This is what worked for David Wilkerson, founder of Teen Challenge, when he spent himself for New York’s bloodthirsty gangs in the late 1950s.

The church is the remedy to society’s ills. It is the preserving agent against moral decay and social breakdown. It is the steward of the Balm of Gilead that alone can heal the most broken lives. I remain a believer in the power of the Gospel message and what it can achieve when lived out. However, the western church has dropped the ball and we have work to do. And it is in our current, seemingly ‘irrelevant’ condition that we must once again prove our worth.

Ironically, the church is facing a fight for its existence at a time when our nation needs us the most. As a pastor and man of God, Herbert Yunkaporta knows the answer for Aurukun and troubled communities like Alice Springs.

“Aurukun needs to be awakened. When we throw a rock in the water, where does the ripple effect begin? From the inside out. We want to make a ripple effect in each and every individual man and young man, by helping them to restore what was lost.”

The hope for mankind and for our communities truly is a change in the human heart; a transformation of the human condition. And only the living organism, that is the church, can offer that miraculous remedy.

It is through the power of the Gospel that broken men and women receive true cleansing, a new heart, and the energising presence of the Creator Himself. It is in the God-breathed Scriptures that we find the blueprint for peaceful and productive societies. Australia boasts natural resources and underground treasure that are the envy of the world.

And yet it will be the rediscovery of the treasure in our people that will lead to the freedom and triumph of troubled towns like Aurukun and Alice Springs. Exploration companies and mining interests cannot help here. The state must ask for the church’s help. The church alone is the steward of the Gospel, wherein is the power to transform men and women “from the inside out.”

by Malcolm R Hughes

In response to Mary Maxwell’s Australia Day 2023 article on Martin Bryant’s continuing incarceration, and knowing that some people still believe, or pretend to believe, that Bryant was guilty, I gathered these questions. Anyone who wishes to provide answers, please contact me at malcomrhughes@bigpond.com

Questions for Those That Still Believe Martin Bryant Was the 1996 Shooter at Port Arthur:

How did Barry Unsworth come to make the prediction in December 1987 that, “there would never be uniform gun laws, until there had been a massacre in Tasmania? Why Tasmania?

Why did Ray Groom change from a ministerial position in Federal Parliament to take up a Tasmanian Parliamentary career about the time of the above statement by Unsworth?

Why did Ray Groom step down as Premier of Tasmania early in 1996, but still retain ministerial portfolios concerning the up-coming massacre?

Why did his replacement Premier Tony Rundle take a trip during this busy change-over time, to Dunblane, Scotland? (See Notes below.)

Why did the Tasmania Government buy the Broad Arrow Cafe when all governments, State & Federal were privatising all other ventures?

Why did the Tasmanian Government ask a Hobart funeral business to tender for a 22 berth freezer mortuary truck in the 12 months before the massacre? No other state had such a vehicle. Why after the massacre was there an attempt to sell this truck?

Why was this vehicle seen to leave Tasmania on a Military vehicle mover?

Why did the same funeral business buy mortuary boxes to handle the corpses in excess of 22, from a Victorian company in time for the massacre?

How is it that Police Commissioner Richard McCreadie had Martin Bryant’s file before the gunman had been identified as “Martin Bryant”?

Why were police in numbers, not sent to Port Arthur immediately the massacre was reported? Port Arthur is 1 hour, by road from Hobart, yet only one on-duty police officer arrived at the scene by 4:30 pm. (The massacre had occurred around 1:30pm)

Who organised to keep police members from Port Arthur for over 3.5 hours? Was this also Commissioner Richard McCreadie?

The gunman was never reported as wearing gloves, so why did the police never recover DNA or fingerprints from his eating tray, utensils, drink container, rifles or magazines said to have been used for the massacre? This sort of evidence is always the first evidence sought when a crime has taken place. This proves that the police knew that the killer was not Bryant. If they recovered this type of evidence the whole deceitful plot would have come apart.

Why did the police leave the window down of the abandoned Volvo overnight so that dew would dissipate fingerprints from the steering wheel?

Why did the gunman need to take the BMW to Seascape when he already had transport via the Volvo? Was it because there was equipment and false evidence in the BMW that had to be delivered to Seascape?

Why was the BMW set on fire, at Seascape? Was it set by a SOG officer?

Why did the gunman need to take Glen Pears as a hostage during the carjacking of the BMW?

Why did the Victorian bank manager, Anthony Nightingale, stand up and say, “No not here, not here” when the shooting started in the Broad Arrow Cafe, after which he was immediately killed?

Why didn’t John Avery present Witness Statements (see Notes below) or any other evidence favourable to Bryant, to the court?

Why was Roger Larner’s Witness Statement in which he proves beyond doubt that Martin Bryant could not have been at Port Arthur at the time that shootings began, taken into account?

How did Police Commissioner Fielding know that there were no live hostages in Seascape, on Monday morning, if he did not have radio contact with the people inside Seascape?

Why was Carleen Bryant, who was escorted to Police Headquarters by police, not asked to identify the telephone caller’s voice from Seascape as being that of her son Martin?

If the caller was Bryant, why was she not asked to convince Martin to give himself up?

Why did Sergeant Dutton falsify evidence about the weapons supposedly used?

Why did Sergeant Dutton have a questioner threatened with arrest and escorted from a “Port Arthur Massacre” meeting held in Queensland?

Why, when a sniper at Seascape requested to take out a gunman firing at helicopters, was he told, “Negative, this has to happen, this has to happen”? (This was overheard by emergency workers on their radio.)

Why did Damien Bugg, the Public Prosecutor, write to Wendy Scurr and other important witnesses before Bryant’s appearance, stating that they would not be required to give evidence?

Why was the Tasmanian Government able to confiscate Martin’s assets (approx. $1 million) so that he was unable to fund his own defence team? (Legislation to this effect was passed after Bryant “pleaded guilty”.)

Why was John Avery, illegally chosen as Byrant’s defence lawyer, even though he had represented the D.P.P. against a witness in the same criminal case?

Why were military helicopters heard overhead most of the April 28-29 night? They were not civilian or police helicopters, as it was not legal for them, at that time in Tasmania, to fly after sunset?

Why were Wendy Scurr and her husband, Graeme persecuted by Tasmanian Police such that they had to eventually leave Tasmania?

Why did the Australian Federal Police attempt to attack my computer three times with viruses and then crash it twice after I had made attempts to contact the then Governor General, Michael Jeffrey, in regard to my information from civilian investigators on the subject of the Massacre?

Why was Damien Bugg rewarded with the position of Commonwealth Public Prosecutor then given permission to operate from Hobart not Canberra?

Why was Justice William Cox rewarded with the appointment of Governor of Tasmania? (He was the first Tasmanian-born to be given that position.)

Why is it that after Benjamin Overbeeke, was named the gunman on the internet, he supposedly committed suicide? (I have heard that his father, who was also at Port Arthur, has stated that he did not suicide, but died in an accident? Set up by whom?

Why was Federal legislation on gun control drawn up prior to the Massacre?

How is it that a rifle handed in during a previous amnesty, was one of the weapons supposedly used in this massacre? (Bryant could never have got his hands on such a weapon, but police could.)

Why did John Howard lie to me personally, saying that the Port Arthur Massacre was out of the Commonwealth’s jurisdiction, even though he had already declared (illegally) that there would be no enquiry and that the Broad Arrow Cafe was to be destroyed?

If the official story is true, why did Justice Cox have all official records locked away, initially for 30 years, but later extended to 45 years? What do the authorities have to hide?

Notes

Graham Collyer who was shot in the neck, but survived, reports in his Witness Statement “that the killer had a pock-marked or acne face”, but it is known that Martin Bryant had a smooth complexion.

James Laycock, who had known Bryant for years, stated in his Witness Statement that “he did not recognise the gunman as Martin Bryant”.

Bryant left Mr Larner’s side at 1:15 pm at the earliest, yet he is supposed to have driven 3 kilometres, arrived at Port Arthur in time to stop to help two young women start their car and sell them some drugs, pay parking fees, park his car, carry rifles and video camera to the Broad Arrow Cafe, stand in a queue to order a meal, walk to the verandah, then be seated and eat that meal, to then start firing a weapon at 1:27 pm. Absolutely impossible in that time frame!

The reason for Tony Rundle’s trip? It appears to me that the only connection between Tasmania and Dunblane, is the already executed school massacre and the planned massacre at Port Arthur.

Seven of the dead have been named as intelligence agents. Two were killed in the Broad Arrow Cafe and five at the scene where the killer exchanged the Volvo for the BMW, after he had killed all five.

The bank manager, Anthony Nightingale, mentioned above, knew that the killings were planned to take part at the jetty. However, the organisers did not take into account that daylight saving adjustment took place during the previous night. This changed the time of the cruise boat departure.

When I reported the computer crimes, with evidence, to Mick Keelty of the A.F.P. and to the Australian Crime Commission, I received no answers.

Four of the people involved in devious action during this time of Tasmania’s sorry history, Ray Groom, Damien Bugg, Justice William Cox and Police Commissioner Richard McCreadie were all honored by becoming members of the Order of Australia. John Avery missed out — he did prison time for stealing funds from a client.

The BMW was probably set ablaze at Seascape to erase all evidence that Martin Bryant had not been in that vehicle. Had it not been burnt and had it undergone forensic testing, the real gunman would have been revealed.

Do you still believe that Martin Bryant is guilty of mass murder? If you do, I pity you, as I do Martin Bryant!

This is a crime of massive proportions, organised by both Federal & State of Tasmania Governments and the Intelligence Agencies of Australia against the population of Australia.

That is TREASON!

Breaking the Silence: Do mRNA Vaccine Harms Outweigh Benefits?

As someone who has always questioned the safety and efficacy of the Covid ‘injectables’, I’ve thought long and hard about why more doctors haven’t voiced concerns, why so many seem unaware of the documented side effects, and why so few are sounding the alarm.

To help me answer this question, I spoke with renowned UK cardiologist and heart-health campaigner Dr Aseem Malhotra, who has been breaking the silence.

‘Double-jabbed’ Malhotra originally supported the program, until a series of events sent him digging into the evidence. What he discovered alarmed him and resulted in the publication of two evidence-based, peer-reviewed papers along with a call for the immediate suspension of the Covid mRNA roll-out. He tells his story:

‘Despite being one of pharma’s biggest critics, I could not have expected or conceived of the possibility that these vaccines, these new vaccines, could cause harm. So very early on I was one of the first to have two doses of the Pfizer vaccine, and I helped out at a vaccine centre in January 2021.

About a month later I had a conversation with a friend of mine, film director Gurinder Chadha (who was) vaccine hesitant. I said to her, “Listen, traditional vaccines are still one of the safest pharmacological interventions in the history of medicine. That doesn’t mean that all vaccines are completely safe. No drug is completely safe. But when you compare them to other pharmacological interventions I’ve talked about and campaigned on, for example diabetes drugs, blood pressure pills or statins, they are far, far safer.”’

Personal Loss

Malhotra further explains his view during a Good Morning Britain interview.

‘I said, “There are rational concerns for vaccine hesitancy and irrational concerns. The rational concerns are when looking at what the pharmaceutical industry has done for years — they’ve been found guilty of fraud on many occasions — and prescribed medications are the third most common cause of death after heart disease and cancer.” So, I was being open, and I felt compassion for people who were vaccine-hesitant. And I said, “In my opinion, as it stands at the moment, traditional vaccines are the safest.”

‘Six months later my father suffered an unexplained… cardiac arrest. The post-mortem didn’t make sense, he was a very fit guy, yet he had very severe narrowings of two of his coronary arteries. I had known his cardiac history inside out, we had done imaging on him a few years earlier. I found myself thinking “hold on a minute, he’s got a rapid progression of coronary artery disease when he’s doing really well during lockdown, walking 10,000 steps a day and eating well. This doesn’t make sense.“ And I could only attribute it at the time to stress, I couldn’t think of any other reason.’

Over the following months, emerging data led Malhotra to question whether the vaccine was linked to his father’s death. The first was an abstract published in Circulation (November 8, 2021) by US cardiothoracic surgeon, Dr Steven Gundry, who followed several hundred of his patients after the mRNA (Moderna/Pfizer) jabs. Gundry found that inflammatory markers correlated with heart disease risk went through the roof. On average, that change increased the risk of those people having a heart attack or stroke within the next five years, from 11 per cent up to 25 per cent. This increase in risk is massive.

Cover-Up

The next event raised more alarm bells for Malhotra.

‘Within two weeks of that abstract, a whistle-blower contacted me from a prestigious institution in the country, and said that a group of researchers had accidentally found through imaging studies that mRNA vaccines were increasing heart attack risk through inflammation, but the lead researcher said they were not going to publish these findings because it may affect funding from pharma.

‘I then felt a duty and contacted GB News saying, “There is a Circulation abstract but also something else I’ve heard,” and I spoke about it on GB News. That interview went viral … with me raising questions and saying, “We need to investigate this.”’

The pushback was strong.

‘One very prestigious medical body that I am affiliated with received a number of anonymous complaints from doctors that I was bringing the medical profession into disrepute, and that as I was in an association with them, I was bringing them into disrepute. I was then asked to formally respond,’ he relates. Malhotra responded and let off with a warning.

Assessment

This experience made him realise how difficult it would be to publicly expose things, so he decided to critically appraise the evidence himself.

‘When I broke the data down, it became very clear, the harms of the mRNA vaccine massively outweigh the benefits. It was not even close! And that’s based on the highest level of quality of data we will ever have.’

The evidence comes from the original double-blind, randomised control trials, that led to the approval of both Pfizer and Moderna by regulators worldwide. Malhotra explains,

‘In a reanalysis of the original trials with the Wuhan strain, eminent scientists essentially found you were more likely to suffer a serious adverse event — for example hospitalisation, disability, or a life-changing event – than you were to be hospitalised with Covid. That means, in essence, the mRNA vaccine should likely never, ever have been approved for anybody in the first place.’

He continues:

‘The randomised control trial data showed a risk of serious adverse events of at least 1 in 800 within two months. It’s probably much higher than that as you go forward because one of the mechanisms is accelerated heart disease. My dad died six months after the second dose of the vaccine; many people are going to be dropping dead and having heart attacks months after having the vaccine because it accelerates coronary artery disease.

But other vaccines have been pulled for far less: the swine flu vaccine was withdrawn in 1976 following episodes of Guillain Barre syndrome at a rate of 1/100,000; rotavirus vaccine was withdrawn in 1999 for causing a form of bowel obstruction (intussusception) in 1/10,000; this is 1/800 at least. So, it’s a no-brainer. The question is: why have they not pulled it? Some say, “It was an emergency use authorisation.” Well, it’s no longer an emergency.’

This begs the question: if the evidence is now so clear, why does the silence continue? Well, I’m glad you asked. In a follow-up article, I will explore the factors contributing to the great silence — hint, it’s not just AHPRA — and how we can move from here.

Encouragingly, if recent events are anything to go by, the silence is (slowly) breaking. The past few weeks have seen appearances by doctors on mainstream media voicing jab safety concerns, including Australia’s Dr Kerryn Phelps, and Malhotra’s recent truth bomb drop on a live BBC broadcast receiving millions of views on Twitter. Thanks Elon.

They are joined by other eminent professors and clinicians sounding the alarm and calling for governments to ‘Stop the Shots’.

Always Was, Always Will Be… Not

Since the 1980s, there’s been an increasingly common slogan. The phrase is synonymous with Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander land rights, self-determination, and sovereignty. “Always Was, Always Will Be” has become an expression of grievance and unhappiness.

But does the concept fit within a Biblical framework?

Always Was?

In the creation process, God began with a water-covered Earth. Not a hot molten mass that slowly cooled over millions of years. On the third day, God separated “dry land” from “the waters below the heavens”. Then He created all manner of plant life to grow on the earth (Genesis 1:9-13). Land, and the vegetation that grows on it, was created by God.

The Bible does not tell us the size and shape of the “dry land”. We’re not told of its location on the globe, or whether it was one continental landmass or many smaller landmasses.

But it was certainly not the landmass that today is called Australia. Nor was it Africa or Asia or the Americas.

On the sixth day, God created the first man and the first woman (Genesis 1:26-27). God placed only one restriction on the first humans… not to eat the fruit of one particular tree (Genesis 2:16-17). Disastrously, they disobeyed God’s command, ate that forbidden fruit, and plunged themselves and all of their descendants into a fallen state of sinfulness (Genesis 3:1-19).

Sometime later, God “saw that the wickedness of man was great on the earth and that every intent of the thoughts of his heart was only evil continually” (Genesis 6:5). God’s response was to destroy humanity (and all land-dwelling air-breathing creatures) with a global flood (Genesis 6:11-13, 17). Only Noah, his wife, their three sons and their wives, and the creatures that God brought to Noah survived.

This means, of course, that every human being is a descendant of Noah and his family. There were no groups of humans living in some remote south land that escaped the Flood. From a Biblical perspective, no group of people can claim to have lived on some land “from the beginning of time”. Only eight human beings in a large ship survived the Flood. So, every single one of us is blood-related, regardless of our ethnic or cultural background.

The Flood did something else… it reshaped the landmasses of the earth. Today, we can observe just how much a local flood can reshape a place. The waters of the global Flood “prevailed more and more upon the earth” (7:19). The land was broken up; tectonic plates rapidly shifted around; and new geographic features were formed.  It was out of the Flood and its aftermath that the continent which today is called Australia was formed.

Never has it been always under the ownership of a particular group of people!

Always Will Be?

It is God who establishes nations. It is God who determines the extent of a nation’s reign, both in a geographic sense and in a temporal sense. Paul declared that God “made from one man every nation of mankind on all the face of the earth, having determined their appointed times and the boundaries of their habitation” (Acts 17:26).

One clear example of nations being displaced is the removal of the Canaanite peoples from their lands.  God promised Abraham that his descendants would be instrumental in driving out the Canaanite nations at a time when “their iniquity” would be complete (Genesis 15:16-21). This would occur over four centuries later under the leadership of Joshua.

Therefore, it is simply arrogant for any individual or any nation to claim “always will be”. Our times — both as individuals and as nations — are in God’s hands. Physical things do not last, and if we link our identity to the physical world, we miss the best that God has for us through relationship with Him.

This truth applies as much to Aboriginal people seeking to derive their identity from land and traditions, as to modern Westerners seeking to build their identity in property, possessions, and pleasures.

Nothing “always was” and nothing “always will be”. Except for Jesus Christ!

‘We Created a Monster’: Djokovic Makes Australian History in the Country That Deported Him

Djokovic’s historic Australian Open win is a reminder that principles matter more than victory, and that adversity can be the best medicine.

Last night Novak Djokovic made Australian history, winning his 10th Australian Open title at an electric Rod Laver Arena, defeating up-and-coming Stefanos Tsitsipas of Greece in straight sets (6-3, 7-6, 7-6).

The win, which Djokovic called “the biggest victory” of his life, puts him on equal footing with Rafael Nadal’s 22 Grand Slam men’s single titles and returns him to the world number one spot.

It was an emotional night for the 35-year-old Serbian, who fought a hamstring injury throughout the Open and then saw his father miss last night’s final due to an off-court controversy late last week. On winning, Novak clambered up into the stands with his family and team, where he sobbed uncontrollably for several minutes before the awards ceremony commenced.

Australia has proven to be a centre of gravity for Djokovic, who won his first Australian Open in 2008, and two decades ago launched his professional career at the same tournament.

An Icon of Free Choice

“This has been one of the most challenging tournaments that I’ve played in my life,” Djokovic told crowds during his Churchill-esque victory speech last night. “Given the circumstances, not playing last year… I want to thank everyone who made me come back and made me welcome.”

It was Djokovic’s subtle reference to the humiliating saga he endured last year, when Australian authorities kicked him out of the country for his personal stance on mandated COVID-19 injections.

Critics and the legacy press variously blamed Djokovic’s deportation on his vaccine-free status and visa application errors. However, as reported by the Daily Declaration, Australian Government representatives made it clear their decision to deport the tennis star was to prevent “an increase in anti-vaccination sentiment” and to keep “an icon of free choice” out of the country.

Ironically, then-Prime Minister Scott Morrison claimed that barring Djokovic from entering Australia somehow protected the country, even as the virus was spreading uncontrolled among the ‘vaccinated’ along Australia’s east coast.

‘We Created a Monster’

Australian Nick Kyrgios, who faced Djokovic in last year’s Wimbledon final, believes the Serb’s deportation only fuelled his desire to take home this summer’s Aussie title. “Haha I told you,” Kyrgios tweeted after Novak’s win. “We created a monster. Well done @DjokerNole.”

Kyrgios was a vocal critic of Australia’s treatment of Djokovic last year. “For the sport, we need him here,” he said at the time. “I just want it to end. I’m feeling for him now, it’s not really humane what’s going on.”

Kyrgios then predicted a principled Novak would channel any feelings of vengeance towards his opponents on court. “He’s going to be very determined to play well and stick it to everyone [because] of what’s going on,” Kyrgios remarked — also warning, “If he’s allowed to play the Australian Open, I don’t want any bar of him.”

‘I Became the Villain of the World’

In spite of how he was treated, Djokovic — who is an Orthodox Christian — has guarded his heart from bitterness. “I don’t hold any grudges. Definitely not against the people of Australia,” he said earlier this month. “I think me being here proves how much I really want to be here and how much I want to play, and how much I like it.”

Nor has Djokovic shied away from discussing what he endured. “All of a sudden, I became the villain of the world which was obviously a terrible position to be in as an athlete and someone who is looking to thrive in its own direction of life and profession,” he said earlier this month. “But that’s something that I had to learn how to handle.”

Novak invested his time off court in further developing the skills that helped him secure his weekend win in Melbourne. “The fact that I wasn’t playing for several months at the beginning of last year allowed me to really get together with my team and work on my body, on my strokes.”

Djokovic’s historic win is a reminder that, even when big sacrifices are required, principles matter more than victory — and victory is still possible in the long run, anyway.

Excess Death Spike Now Seen Simultaneously in 30 Western Nations

Data from across the Western world shows an unusual excess death spike that demands an explanation.

At least 30 Western nations are experiencing a coincidental spike in excess deaths years after the peak of the COVID-19 pandemic, according to statistics from national databases.

Examples of the national data in question have been circulating for months on social media. This week, up-to-date statistics were collated and summarised by Covid commentator Dr John Campbell. A retired Ph.D. nurse educator from northern England, Campbell has had over 600 million views on his popular YouTube channel.

Australia, the United States, the United Kingdom, Canada and New Zealand, as well as 25 European countries or subnational regions, all have rising excess mortality data showing hundreds of thousands of collective excess deaths during the latter half of 2022.

“I think we are in somewhat of an international emergency,” the usually understated Campbell tells viewers in his most recent video.

Despite heavy interest from the legacy press in daily deaths during the pandemic, mainstream news outlets are yet to show any interest in the highly unusual spike in worldwide excess mortality.

What the Excess Death Statistics Say

In the United States, excess deaths throughout 2022 total more than 242,000, per CDC and census data. According to Campbell, this is the opposite of what should be expected since so many of the nation’s vulnerable already died during the pandemic and immunity should be higher now than in recent years.

Excess mortality also remains high in Canada, though currently, Statistics Canada only provides data until August 2022.

In Australia, the most recent provisional mortality statistics show almost 20,000 more deaths than the historical average — a 16% spike. Less than half of these, or 8,160, are attributable to Covid-19. The remainder are yet unexplained, though a significant number have been referred to coroners.

New Zealand has seen a 10% rise in deaths between 2021 and 2022 per StatsNZ data.

Excess Death Data in the UK and Europe

Statistics bureaus in the United Kingdom are releasing particularly worrisome data. During a single week in January, almost 20,000 deaths were recorded, or 20.4% more than the historical average. As Campbell points out, in raw numbers that week more UK citizens died than there were victims in the 2001 World Trade Centre terrorist attack, yet the press has responded with “a deafening silence”.

As elsewhere, in the UK, Covid-19 cases and hospitalisations are going down and intensive care admissions remain low, even as excess deaths are up, indicating that the vast majority of these excess deaths are not attributable to Covid-19. Indeed, only 5.3% of UK deaths involve Covid-19, per the Office for National Statistics.

According to EuroMOMO data, all-cause mortality is significantly up in 25 European nations or subnational regions. Elevated levels of excess mortality are seen in all age groups compared to average levels from before 2020.

Excess Deaths and the Bradford Hill criteria

In summarising the worldwide data trend, Campbell refers to the Bradford Hill criteria, a set of principles widely used in epidemiology to establish a causal relationship between an effect and its presumed cause.

According to Campbell, the Bradford Hill criteria has been met in the excess deaths fiasco, though he stops short of naming the probable cause for fear of violating YouTube’s so-called COVID-19 medical misinformation policy.

“I really hope this stops soon,” Campbell laments, adding, “But even if it did stop tomorrow, this demands an explanation.”

Ripe for Revival — Reflections on “Great Southland Revival”

It will probably come as a surprise to many people that the word ‘revival’, like the term ‘Trinity’, does not occur in any reputable English translation of the Bible.

However, while the word can’t be found anywhere, the concept can be seen everywhere.

Its origins are simple. It derives from the Latin infinitive revivere, which means to live (vivere) again (re). Basically, it means ‘new life’.

Biblical Beginnings

Paul tells us in Romans 6:4, that we were buried with Christ by baptism into death, in order that, just as Christ was raised from the dead by the glory of the Father, we too might walk in newness of life. He writes elsewhere of being made alive in Christ; of living a life by faith towards God; of experiencing new life (2 Corinthians 3:6; Galatians 2:19-20; Ephesians 2:5; Colossians 2:13).

The Psalmist celebrates the pathway of life (Psalm 16:11) and the promise of everlasting life (Psalm 119:50; 133:3). To summarise: to walk in newness of life is to walk in revival. To be in Christ is to be in a state of revival.

This leads us to the inescapable conclusion that revival is — or ought to be — the everyday experience of followers of Christ. Leo Harris, the pioneer of the CRC churches, described it simply as living out the New Testament.

Geoffrey Bingham, biblical expositor and author, used to remark that revival is basically giving attention to ‘the bread and butter’ issues of life — prayer, Bible study, faith, hope, love, forgiveness, kindness, reliability, steadfastness, integrity and so on.

Biblical revival affects every aspect of what we do and how we behave. This is why the apostle talks of ‘walking’ in newness of life. Walking is steady, ongoing action. It is not explosive or dramatic. Sometimes not even exciting. Missionary hero William Carey attributed whatever success he had experienced to this.

‘I am a plodder,’ he once wrote. ‘I can plod. To this I owe everything.’ Decades of ministry have persuaded me of the same reality. I used to drum into my students a simple, short phrase: ‘Plod with God.’

Arise

What we commonly call revival can be seen as the outcome of two direct scriptural terms, ‘awakening’ and ‘visitation’. Frequently, the prophets called people to wake up (Isaiah 26:19; 52:1; Joel 1:5), as did both Jesus (Mark 13:33-37) and Paul (Eph 5:14).

When the people of God become sleepy, they need to be aroused. Such awakening includes the idea of action. Lazarus may be well and truly alive, but he still needs to get up and walk. He is not resurrected to stay in the grave.

Similarly, the Bible frequently refers to times of visitation, when God drops in, as it were, to demonstrate his power. Sometimes, he visits us with judgement (Exodus 20:5; Psalm 59:8; 89:32); more often, he visits us with blessing (Genesis 50:2 4-25; Psalm 106:4; 1 Samuel 2:21). The greatest visitation of all was the coming of Jesus (Luke 1:68; Acts 15:14).

Divine visitations remind us of how things ought to be. Stuart Piggin has written of revival being an intensification by Jesus of the Holy Spirit’s normal activity. For this reason, it is often relatively short-lived. It may also be unexpected. Jonathan Edwards called the initial phases of the Great Awakening ‘a surprising work of God.’

Martin Luther, the premier pioneer of the Reformation, the greatest visitation since the days of Christ, was as surprised as anyone when it began. It is self-evident that awakenings and visitations are necessarily the work of God, initiated by Him. They do not originate as the result of human effort. We cannot awaken or visit ourselves.

God’s Hand Throughout History

It is appropriate to speak of such manifestations as revivals so long as we recognise that they have a purpose beyond themselves. And this is where this book, Great Southland Revival, is so important. The authors make it clear that their aim was not to write another study of the nature of revival, but rather to record how and when revival has been experienced in the past, so that we can be pointed to
possibilities for the future. And they have accomplished this purpose admirably. The book is prophetic.

It is particularly gratifying to read accounts of divine visitation that have been buried, ignored or simply unknown to contemporary Christians. There are many surprises to be enjoyed. It is enlightening to read of the work of the Spirit in apostolic and medieval times; it is heart-warming to see how the Wesleyan revival touched so many lives; it is exciting to observe the impact of the Great Awakening and the Pentecostal outpouring; it is invigorating to trace the Evangelical roots of Australian society.

Many readers will be astonished to learn of the 1902 Simultaneous Mission in Victoria and New South Wales which led to tens of thousands of professions of faith and remarkable social transformation. The best example was the visitation in Mount Kembla — similar to the impact of the Welsh Revival, but predating it by three years.

Or of the astonishing move of God in the mining town of Moonta in 1875, where the whole community was deeply touched by God’s Spirit. Or of the powerful effect of Evangelicalism on the founders of Australian Federation.

Renewal

This volume offers hope and encouragement to people everywhere, and to Australians in particular. This is not to say we will suddenly all be perfect. It is salutary to be reminded that the congregation at Ephesus, one of the best New Testament churches, included people who had to be instructed not to abuse their families, get drunk, tell lies or steal. Even so, they had been ‘made alive’, that is, revived, and were now far from the darkness that once held them in thrall. They were ‘walking’ in revival (Ephesians 2:10; 4:1; 4:17; 6:2, 8, 15).

It all began with an outpouring of the Holy Spirit, followed by months of patient preaching of God’s Word, whereupon God worked unprecedented signs and wonders and the name of Jesus was held in high honour throughout the city (Acts 19:1-17). Idolatry was shattered and inevitably, persecution followed (Acts 19:18-41).

If this is a template of revival, it is salutary to ask where Australia stands on the continuum. Mahlburg and Marsh give us plenty of reasons to ask the question — and to pray for a visitation from on high.

As journalist and Christian apologist Greg Sheridan pointed out in late 2022, Australia has unashamedly taken a position as a pagan nation and is, therefore, like Corinth, another New Testament city, not fit for destruction but ripe for revival. I look forward to the day when a later edition of Great Southland Revival will chronicle that story.
