At present in Australia, banks are effectively above the law with respect to small business customers. Banks operate, self-consciously, in the realm of the law of the jungle. The public image of the Australian regulatory system is that the rule of law prevails. The ACCC, ASIC, APRA, and so on, are the public face of this public image. The public image in this domain is a lie.
Most victims, good law-abiding citizens, have lapsed into passivity, which suits the banks and the regulatory agencies perfectly. The less fuss the better. The victims have been reduced to idleness (when not futilely seeking assistance from politicians and regulators), supported by relatives, and/or are on pensions at public expense. Family breakdown is par for the course. Suicide is not unknown, especially amongst farmers (drought is a contributing factor to depression in the bush, but bank thuggery is also a contributing factor, well known to those affected but suppressed by the media and rendered oblivious to those in authority).
Frankly, one can understand if bank victims took the view that they could achieve better justice if they themselves took the law into their own hands and operated according to the same law of the jungle.

Australian coal-mining companies and Prime Minister John Howard are promoting "clean coal" as a technology that will enable the coal industry to continue its exports while supposedly cleaning up the greenhouse-gas emissions from the burning of this coal.
According to the Australian Coal Association (ACA), clean-coal technologies "reduce emissions, reduce waste, and increase the amount of energy gained from each tonne of coal". These measures focus on capturing and storing the carbon dioxide gas emitted from burning coal to power electricity generation.

Tony Rigg has agreed to be/live behind the barriers as of Tuesday morning 20th February 2007. In discussions with Tony, we now ask all victims of banisters since the 1970's to unite together in solidarity with us, as a show of strength and unity in support of the 2nd Eureka Stockade. For those who do not know about Tony's actions since the mid 1980's please go to this page for further information.
There is and has always been a divine influence that has meddled in the minds of the bank staff, the solicitors and the judiciary, leading to our court case and now the 2nd Eureka Stockade. The opportunity has been presented to us and we should grab it while we have got it and use it to force our story into main-stream. This coming together of all victims in the spirit of love-for-life is a healing and a stand for love-for-life. Alan Heart, a native American is compiling Australian victims of banks into a website and this is being listed in our website www.loveforlife.com.au shortly.

As expected, arrogance, scorn, ridicule & derision was the tone of the day from the judge, the plaintiff's barrister & lawyer, leading to no stay being granted again. Justice McDougall did not disappoint me. He was full of his own glory or was it all just a front, shitting himself if he stuffed up.
The Judge was scripted.
No doubt about it.
Phil Atkinson & Mick Gallagher were there with Mick giving out Love For Life fliers in the packed court room while I was on stage with the judge. Phil says they were reading the fliers intently.
I told the judge that Supreme Court judges were arrogant, containing highly developed intellects that were very clever and crafty, determined to ignore truth & justice without any empathy, compassion or love for this nations citizens.

A new World Rainforest Movement report 'A funny place to store carbon' documents human rights abuses at Mount Elgon National Park in east Uganda, where the Dutch FACE Foundation has been planting carbon 'offset' trees since 1994. The report exposes how villagers living along the boundary of the park have been beaten and shot at, have been barred from their land and have seen their livestock confiscated by armed park rangers guarding the 'carbon trees' inside the National Park.

Sunday, December 31st, 2006 - The conventional healthcare system in the US, rated 72nd in quality but first in cost by the World Health Organization, (WHO) and declared in the authoritative study "Death by Medicine" to be the number one killer of Americans is finally beginning to suffer the consequences of its policies.
Americans are challenging, not just the concept of "five minute medicine," but the absurdity of the "drugs, drugs, and more drugs," approach to dealing with health issues.
Everywhere in the land, the health care system is being challenged. State legislatures, like California and others, are so fed up with the greedy-maw-with-trash-offering of organized health-care, that many are considering forcing health care into State-run systems, in an attempt to force some honesty and integrity into the morass. Consumer groups across America are railing over health issues, loudly, proclaiming their anger at vaccinations infested with pollutants and toxins, deadly radioactive fluoride in their water, testing of their children in schools to justify forced drugging, and more.

The Cristian family - Arthur, Fiona, Jasmin, Emma and Frances - have found themselves caught up in a NSW Supreme Court drama over a home loan with Macquarie Banks intermeddling interloping interfering impostors (agents), some known as Macquarie Mortgages Pty Limited and Perpetual Limited ACN 000 431 827.
In a dispute that is now entering its second year, Fiona, a determined NSW Southern Highlands Suburban Housewife, operating on an oily rag and without legal representation, has continued to defend her fortress with sticks and stones against a multi-billion dollar banking giant who covets it.
"For those who understand legal terms, they mendaciously and wilfully created a false perjured brief which they submitted in collusion to the court as evidence against us. It was seriocomic in that it was laughable in its ridiculousness but deadly serious and dangerous at the same time. They conjured up an imaginary legal profess contract based on their poetic, artistic licence.

Thom Hartmann is a multifaceted man. He's a well-known host of three nationally syndicated radio talk shows and a Project Censored award winner for his writing on the issue of corporate personhood. He also began seven companies, worked in international relief, founded schools and hospitals on four continents, and has expertise in childhood psychological disorders. Along the way he found time to write 19 books including his newest one just out in early September dramatically titled Screwed: The Undeclared War Against the Middle Class. It's an account of how our government lost its moorings and is acting against the interests of the people it was elected to serve. The results are disturbing as the book shows how the US middle class is shrinking, democracy is ebbing, and both are on life support and threatened with extinction by an omnipotent corporatocracy wanting to destroy the system of government on which the nation was founded and is codified in the letter and spirit o f the Constitution.
