Part 19: Australia’s “irrelevant” Crimes against Humanity. Another email to the Queensland Justice Minister, Yvette D`Arth re the wisdom of a High Court Challenge to the Baden-Clay decision. Ronald's space

Below is the text of another email to Yvette D`Arth, the Queensland Justice Minister, in which I emphasize the risks involved if Gerard Baden-Clay takes on-board the evidence relating to the civil rights violations that have seen millions of welfare recipients ripped off and the possibility  of a huge death toll caused by these violations of rights. References to ‘The Emcott Report’ refer to the document below which contains over 80 case studies that could aid anyone accused of crime, including murder, to mount an Apprehended Bias defence in a court of law.

[Note the short link URL for this posting is:  http://wp.me/p1n8TZ-t4    ]

This is a 328 page report that is still being edited. it identifies politicians, public servants and police officers involved in hiding the death toll caused by both Breaching and Centrelink's "Waivergate" rip-off. It also looks at other deaths caused by lousy decision making by politicians, bureaucrats and police.

"The Australian newspaper is like a free market Pravda." (Dr Jeremy Salt) (We) can do better

Why does the mass media support false government narratives that justify our support or participation in deadly wars? Media analyst, Jeremy Salt and Susan Dirgham of Australians for Reconciliation in Syria, explore this perplexing question that shapes our times and our future.

Why does the mass media support false government narratives that justify our support or participation in deadly wars? Media analyst, Jeremy Salt and Susan Dirgham of Australians for Reconciliation in Syria, explore this perplexing question that shapes our times and our future.

This article is summary plus transcript from the video of Part Two of Politics and war in Syria: Susan Dirgham interviews Jeremy Salt. Susan Dirham is convener of Australians for Reconciliation in Syria (AMRIS) and Jeremy Salt is a scholar of Media propaganda and the Middle East.

SUSAN DIRGHAM: Explains how Syrian society is secular, how women have freedom there, and that it is predominantly secular. For her it is very comparable to Australian society. So why don’t Australians know this? Furthermore, the Sunnis in Syria, who are in the majority, do not welcome the extremism that is being brought into the country.

Mystery of mass media’s motivation in supporting false government narratives

JEREMY SALT: Relates the problem back to the mass media again, ( as in Part One of this series). What people know about Syria is what the media chooses to tell them. There is a huge question about media ethic...

Regarding the US Camps and the End Times… DavidShurter.com

There has been a lot of conversation regarding the camps that America has built, and the miles of coffins they have constructed that hold five bodies a piece, and the 40,000 guillotines that have been brought in. Many are convinced that our government is planning something terrible- and they are correct. They have been planning on this for a long time now- as we can see with all of the effort and money that has been spent on all of this. But now they find themselves in a situation where they are not able to implement their plans. Why do I say this? Because I was taught as a child that by 2015 these killing camps were to be in full operation and it is obvious that they are not. These had been the plans for an awful long time, but now something has become amiss concerning this operation. They no longer have the power to engage their plans. They have everything built- and everything is prepared- but now they can no longer figure out how to pull off their plans. Basically because the power that fueled them- protected them- has been removed and they are at a complete loss as to how to get everything back to the way it was.

Justice Anton Scalia was found with a pillow over his head. Was he murdered? I don’t think anyone will really ever know the truth, but he hasn’t been the first- nor will he be the last. Was his death supernatural? Did the Grim Reaper suddenly appear and claim him? He is, no doubt, dead as a door nail- but how did it happen? I have an idea.

You see, when you practice dark magic- and there is a group who is most definitely guilty of doing this- it opens you up in ways that aren’t really in your best interest. Possession CAN and DOES happen- and it can make you do things that you wouldn’t do otherwise if left on your own accord. I am not saying that the “devil made you do it”, but there ARE beings who have a vast amount of influence on the human species, and they have the power to encourage us in ways that we can’t fight....

Video: Mark Allen, planner: Fast population growth and poor planning - a vicious circle (We) can do better

“So, increasing the population – fast population growth and poor planning – they’re like a vicious circle. When I worked as a planner, I’d go to VCAT and, quite often, development applications would be turned down by councils and the developer’s argument would be, ‘I know, ideally, this isn’t the best place to build this development, but you do know that Melbourne’s population is going to double by 2040-something and so, therefore, we’ve got to start building high-density in areas where we wouldn’t normally build it, because, you know, unless we’re just going to sprawl outwards forever…’. But both are going to happen, so we’ve got to understand that rapid population growth and developers who are making sure that they’re taking control of the planning system - they’re intertwined.†Mark Allen, former planner, of Population, Permaculture and Planning in a speech at the Sustainable Living Festival in Melbourne, 14 February 2016.

Mark Allen of Population Permaculture and Planning asks: Is it possible to accommodate a growing population without unacceptably high density living and urban sprawl? If so, what rate of population growth should we be looking at and what types of community should we be creating? This workshop discusses the merits of village style living in combination with permaculture principles and asks the question, where do we go from here?

New Research: Mussels are fighting back against ocean acidification (We) can do better

The gradual rise in oceanic acidity is weakening the shells of shellfish, corals and sea urchins, making them vulnerable to predation and damage from oceanic movements.

Many marine animals produce protective shells and exoskeletons from calcium carbonate from seawater, but higher CO2 concentrations absorbed into seawater from the environment is lowering the oceanic PH.

The gradual rise in oceanic acidity is weakening the shells of shellfish, corals and sea urchins, making them vulnerable to predation and damage from oceanic movements.

Many marine animals produce protective shells and exoskeletons from calcium carbonate from seawater, but higher CO2 concentrations absorbed into seawater from the environment is lowering the oceanic PH.

This makes conditions more acidic and is affecting the strength of shells making the animals weaker against predators such as crabs and other marine life. But new research at the University of Glasgow shows the humble mussel is fighting back by adapting and evolving to the sea changes.

In a new paper, published February 15, 2016 in Scientific Reports, researchers from the University of Glasgow found mussel shells grown under ocean acidification produce more amorphous calcium carbonate as a repair mechanism, compensating for the impact of environmental changes.

With growth in global industrialisation, the surface pH of the oceans has declined form pH 8.1 to pH 8.0, meaning the water is less alkaline. Increasing CO2 leads to ocean acidification and scientists expect a further reduction in alkalinity from pH 8.0 – pH ~7.7 by the end of the 21st century.

Video & Transcript: Women's Rights in Syria and a History of Western interventions in the region (We) can do better

Susan Dirgham of AMRIS talks with Middle East and propaganda scholar, Jeremy Salt, about the history of western interventions in the Middle East and in Syria. She asks why the mainstream press don't tell westerners how Syria is secular and has good women's rights; women got the vote there in 1947. This article is summary plus transcript from the video of Part One of Politics and war in Syria: Susan Dirgham interviews Jeremy Salt. Susan Dirham is convener of Australians for Reconciliation in Syria (AMRIS) and Jeremy Salt is a scholar of Media propaganda and the Middle East

Jeremy Salt begins by talking about 19th century history of interventions in the Middle East, then about intervention in Iraq in 1990s. The UN ran this nominally, but really England and United States did. Two UN humanitarians objected to the inhumanity of economic sanctions against Iraq, possibly even mentioned ‘genocide’: they were Denis Halliday and Hans von Sponeck. [1] To Susan’s question, Dr Salt agrees that UN personnel no longer speak out. On the subject of the 2003 ‘weapons of mass destruction’: The use of no-fly zones to conduct aerial bombardments. [2] Libya. No-fly zone fig leaf. Syria: they wanted to get a UN resolution for a no-fly zone, but Russia and China blocked this with the UN. Next best thing [sic] was to pull down the government of Damascus by using armed gangs – mercenaries. From 2011 until now and still [the west]have not reached their main objective, which is the destruction of the government in Damascus, but they have destroyed a large part of Syria. This is similar to the Sandinista template of mercenaries used in Nicaragua.

Part 18: Australia’s “irrelevant” Crimes against Humanity: Gerard Baden-Clay, Yvette D`Arth and Centrelink’s New Year’s Day violation of the civil rights of 73,000 people. Ronald's space

On New Year’s day, Centrelink violated the civil rights of 73,000 people and almost scored tens of millions of dollars as a result. However, as I pointed out in my last posting, Ms. Tracie Mitchell, a courageous young woman in Cowra, New South Wales, clobbered that when she spat the dummy on this abuse of power and blew the whistle to the 7 Network.

I’m taking that a step further by pointing out to the Queensland Justice Minister, Yvette D`Arth, that the endless violation of the rights of welfare recipients has reached the point where there is going to be blow-back, sooner rather than later, if she pushes ahead with a High Court challenge to the down-grading of Gerard Baden-Clay’s conviction from Murder to Manslaughter.

Dear Minister D`Arth

Re: Baden-Clay and Breaching, the classified “Coward’s Punch” serial killer.

The writer Aldous Huxley is credited with the cliché, “Facts do not cease to exist because they are ignored.”  This truism has the potential to alter the future of our nation in 2016. Whether or not you choose to accept my views on the facts that I place before you in this 12,000 word summary is irrelevant; what matters is what Gerard Baden-Clay may decide to do if he looks at the empirical evidence and accepts it for what it is, i.e. the truth.

The federal welfare penalty system known as Breaching is a serial killing ‘Coward’s  Punch’ that over a period of decades may have claimed the lives of between 15,000 – 60,000 very vulnerable people. View Breaching f...

Authors can now post and other candobetter.net news (We) can do better

In the column to the left you will find, as before, links for logging in (if you have an account) and links for starting new blog entries, stories etc - although these formats are all pretty similar and most contributors just use 'blogs'. You can make comments without having an account. You can submit stories via the contact link (at top of left hand column). Be sure to label them 'Submission for candobetter.net'.

Changes to site lay-out of formatting options:

Experienced candobetter.net writers will notice that the lay-out of the formatting options for articles is a little different. Just look carefully. All the options are still there, such as 'text', 'full html', publish, unpublish, front page etc.

Publishing pictures does require a slightly different pathway now. Instead of img src="/files/name-of-picture.jpg" you need to write: img src="/sites/default/files/name-of-picture.jpg". Email or ring if you have problems.

What we want you to publish:

The main thing is to write about what is going on today as you see it (or you may want to comment on the history of where we are now), related to our website subjects, which are 'reform in democracy, environment, population, land use planning and energy policy'. You will find that these topics cover just about everything you can think of - and that is why we have chosen them, although they originally relate to the thesis, The Growth Lobby in Australia and its Absence in France. A good short article about the Growth Lobby is this one by James Sinnamon:...
