The politicisation of the AFP and ALP corruption

The politicisation of the AFP and ALP corruption

Racism, and in particular anti-black racism, is a part of our community’s psyche. A significant segment of our community holds overtly racist views. A much larger segment subconsciously operates on the basis of negative racial stereotypes. Furthermore, our institutions, including the criminal justice system, reflect and perpetuate those negative stereotypes. These elements combine to infect our society as a whole with the evil of racism. Blacks are among the primary ...

The name is Funk, Skunky Funk

The name is Funk, Skunky Funk

What many people may not know is that Australia has its very own ‘007’, Federal Agent Peter Bond. Like all good ‘007s’ Federal Agent Bond needs an alias. After reading excerpts from his diary, which came into my possession in the form of subpoenaed material that had been placed into evidence in a matter that was recently heard in the Queensland Court of Appeal, I decided that the most appropriate ...

Genocide: the word behind law enforcement in Australia

Genocide: the word behind law enforcement in Australia

The following is an abridged version of one of the victim statements I have been collecting in support of an application to the United Nations Human Rights Commission, alleging human rights violations against Australia’s indigenous peoples by the Australian Government and its agencies. As some of the victims who have provided me with statements have been harassed, the name has been changed to protect her anonymity. Without any further introductions, ...

Gratuitous acts of racism in Australia’s capital, Canberra!

Gratuitous acts of racism in Australia’s capital, Canberra!

In fact, the worst offender of institutionalised discrimination and marginalisation of Aboriginal people is the government.—Neil Gillespie, head of the Aboriginal Legal Rights Movement Inc, South Australia (‘Poor health, racism go hand in hand – research’, Koori Mail 448 p.32) Over the last few months I have been liaising with an Indonesian journalist, who like me, has an interest in Australian Federal Police racism and corruption. While her particular focus ...

Worldwide phenomena: white hate crimes committed against indigenous people

Worldwide phenomena: white hate crimes committed against indigenous people

I was contacted over the weekend by a colleague in the United States who pointed out to me the similarities in the nature of the crimes I described in my post Lawrence and King: a study in institutionalised racism and the response by the white dominated Australian Federal Police to the complaint that was contemporaneously made about that incident by Ms. King and an incident that occurred in Nevada on May ...

The carbon tax, more scope for Australian Federal Police corruption

The carbon tax, more scope for Australian Federal Police corruption

Julia Gillard, in one of her more outrageous moments, has declared that her carbon tax would be “shyster” proof; to which, the Australian Federal Police Association (AFPA) quickly countered with “the policy would have a dramatic impact on the force.” The Department of Climate Change has indicated that provisions have been made under the dumped carbon pollution reduction scheme to appoint Australian Federal Police officers as climate inspectors. AFPA president ...

Co-operate or else, AFP thuggery in the pursuit of a white Australia

Co-operate or else, AFP thuggery in the pursuit of a white Australia

97 Quite rightly, the accused regarded ASIO and the AFP as arms of the state. He quite rightly assumed that they were acting together. The notion that he would be likely to reason that the AFP would not tell ASIO about the extent of his cooperation is fanciful. It would also have been utterly mistaken. Not only did the AFP disclose what he had said to ASIO, but both organizations ...

Drew Grant and the Organisasi Papua Merdeka

Drew Grant and the Organisasi Papua Merdeka

Firstly I want to dispel any illusions that my heading might have created about Mr Grant being in any way connected to the Organisasi Papua Merdeka. The connection between the two lies solely in the fact that over the weekend I was fortunate to meet people associated with the free West Papua movement, who were visiting from Europe. Over drinks I posed a question about the murder of Mr Drew ...

Another nail in the coffin of Australia’s democracy

“The pattern from the 1980s right through to Haneef is a culture of obsessive secrecy… where the AFP’s major objective has been to look good whilst at the same time avoiding public scrutiny and accountability,” (Former AFP officer interviewed in October, 2008 for ABC Four Corners programme Good Cop, Bad Cop) On the same programme, referencing senior Australian Federal Police officers, the former Commonwealth Ombudsman, Professor John McMillan, stated that ...

So who has been a naughty boy, then?

Well, it would appear that Australian lawyer and senior Australian Litigation Advisor to the Attorney-General of Vanuatu Ari Jenshel has been a very naughty boy! So naughty indeed, that he was expelled from Vanuatu by its government after it accused him of espionage. Mr. Jenshel was made to leave after the Australian government was warned he faced imminent arrest over his activities as senior adviser in the office of the ...

ASIO’s new power grab: be alert and alarmed!

Political language is designed to make lies sound truthful and murder respectable, and to give an appearance of solidity to pure wind. George Orwell. Why have there been no terrorist attacks in Australia (except for the bombing of the Sydney Hilton Hotel during CHOGM in 1978, for which ASIO opportunistically blamed members of the Australian branch of Ananda Marga, and the 1986 bombing of the Melbourne Turkish consulate, a crime ...

How about some honesty and transparency, please!

Chinese mafia groups have infiltrated and corrupted the highest levels of Papua New Guinea’s police force, crippling the struggling nation’s attempts to tackle its law-and-order crisis and posing a potential national security threat to Australia. An Age investigation has uncovered alleged links between 16 of PNG’s most senior police and Asian criminals implicated in people-smuggling, money-laundering, prostitution, illegal gambling, fraud and theft. Australian authorities fear that PNG’s police are so ...

Derision, lies and the death of OUR DEMOCRACY

Derision, lies and the death of OUR DEMOCRACY

I lived in Australia for a year and was astounded at the level of casual racism in all walks of Australian life. The term ‘wog’ is used by many people in casual conversation and looks of shock are met with “It’s just a word mate, they use it too!” (Samfromstroud 12 May 2011 at 10:59) Really? If this is true it is a terrible reflection on Australian society. Casual racism ...

Well thank god for that! Like all good rats, the king of spin is the first to abandon the sinking ship of state the Australian Capital Territory. Yes, strictly speaking the ACT is not a state and nor should it ever become one, so perhaps a more accurate descriptor would be King Rat surfaces in Australia’s cesspool of greed, corruption and shady deals.

Australia the land of the fair go – now that’s bullshit unless you happen to be fair!

Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander imprisonment (ATSI) rates have soared by a whopping 52 per cent over the past decade.
