Spellbinding Look At A Secret History

Witchcraft and magic were alive and well in Australia's colonial days, if the findings of respected author and historian Ian Evans are anything to go by.

Mr Evans will reveal all when he talks next Wednesday at the Queensland Museum about his research into this previously unknown "underworld" in colonial Australia.

Spells and witchcraft are commonplace in the history of many countries, but have managed to bypass Australian historians almost completely - until recently.

Ian believes a convict woman's boot from the Moreton Bay penal settlement was part of an ancient folk magic ritual, and the boot is one of many objects found in old houses and buildings across Australia for the same reason. The boot was found in the roof cavity of the old Commissariat Store in William Street, Brisbane in 1913, but its full meaning has only been recently revealed.

Commonwealth of Australia Constitution Act- by Arthur and Fiona Cristian

Most Australians mistakenly believe we have a Constitution that determines how we are governed and the laws that are made that have an effect over our lives. Most Australians are unaware that, even to this day, The Commonwealth Of Australia does not have a Constitution and in fact, The Commonwealth Of Australia is now a registered private corporation, which the men and women of Australia do not own or control.

How did this happen?

Why have the men and women of Australia been lied to for more than 100 years?

Who has really benefited from this 100-year-old secret?
Lets find out.

There were three referendums over the Australian Constitution prior to 1900. When the results of the third referendum of 1898 for the proposed Australian Constitution were sent across to the British Colonial Office, 68 alterations were made by the Colonial Office before it was presented to the Imperial Parliament as a bill for debate.

Rise Up Against the Empire

President Hugo Chavez,
Address to the United Nations
20/Sep/2006

Yesterday, ladies and gentlemen, from this rostrum, the president of the United States, the gentleman to whom I refer as the devil, came here, talking as if he owned the world. Truly. As the owner of the world.

I think we could call a psychiatrist to analyze yesterday’s statement made by the president of the United States. As the spokesman of imperialism, he came to share his nostrums, to try to preserve the current pattern of domination, exploitation and pillage of the peoples of the world.
