Lost Sovereignty; a disgraced judge and a kidnapped Attorney-General

Lost Sovereignty; a disgraced judge and a kidnapped Attorney-General

Carl Schmitt’s Political Theology: Four Chapters on the Concept of Sovereignty is both famous and obscure. A twentieth-century political theory, containing two canonical sentences: “Sovereign is he who decides on the exception” and “All significant concepts of the modern theory of the state are secularized theological concepts.” These statements are regurgitated by contemporary political and legal theorists time and again. Standing alone, Schmitt’s statements are both puzzling and shocking. Schmitt’s ...

The masks we wear: Ernst & Young and global terrorism

…the threats we face are no longer from known enemies, nations that have fleets or missiles or bombers that we can see come to the United States, nations that can be deterred through previous notions such as mutually assured destruction or any other previous defence notions. (Ari Fleischer former White House Press Secretary for U.S. President George W. Bush as reported on ABC AM Tuesday, 3 December, 2002) The new ...

Operation Helpem Fren

Operation Helpem Fren

On 18 January 2012 the Solomon Star reported that RAMSI apologist and the former Solomon Islands Finance Minister and Member of Parliament for West New Georgia and Vona Vona, Peter Boyers, was arrested and charged with criminal trespass and intimidation. What is more interesting are the facts surrounding these charges. According to the Solomon Star, Boyers was engaged in a longstanding dispute with political rival Peter Boso. In an apparent ...

Mr Keelty said yesterday he was concerned about “recent developments” involving both PNG and the Solomons. “If the criminal justice system is corrupted, or otherwise interfered with, a community is left with few options, the least desirable of those options is for them to take ...

Former Kopassus commander Lt. Gen. (ret.) Prabowo Subianto (who was “forced to retire because of his involvement in the kidnapping, torture, and murder of democracy activists in early 1998”) has argued: Indonesian culture is very violent and the military is a mirror of society. … This whole culture in Indonesia is a culture of violence between tribes and ethnic groups. …This is something that we are aware of, something we ...

Moti a champion of indigenous human rights

Congratulations Julian Moti QC on your well-deserved win over Australian racism and hypocrisy! “If the criminal justice system is corrupted, or otherwise interfered with, a community is left with few options, the least desirable of those options is for them to take the law into their own hands,” Former Australian Federal Police (“the AFP”) Commissioner Mick Keelty While few would dispute the wisdom of Commissioner Keelty’s words they tend to ...

Anti-Aboriginal racism rife in the Australian Community

Anti-Aboriginal racism rife in the Australian Community

The National Tertiary Education Union (“NTEU”) has released the findings from the Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander member survey ‘I’m Not Racist But … Report on Cultural Respect, Racial Discrimination, Lateral Violence and related Policy at Australia’s Universities’. The survey findings indicate that Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander academic and general/professional staff continue to experience racial discrimination and a general lack of cultural respect in Australian universities. Following the numerous ...

Corporate greed and an update on a call for a Royal Commission into the AFP

Corporate greed and an update on a call for a Royal Commission into the AFP

I have spent the last few weeks travelling around remote Indigenous communities collecting signatures in support of a Royal Commission into the AFP and statements in support of my application to the United Nations Office of the High Commissioner for Human Rights(“OHCHR”). Simultaneously, I have been drumming up support for a personal message to the United Nations Security Council arguing that Australia, because of the entrenched and systemic racism that ...

Canberra Corrupt: The self styled Creative Canberran

Dear Creative_Canberran, Please forgive my tardiness in responding to your racist, defamatory and provocative insights into my research and writing abilities. No, your infantile rant on RiotAct has not escaped me; it’s just that it’s taken me some time to identify precisely who you are. After reading your infantile rant, I asked my main man Mahmud to track down the arse-wipe who wrote this, to which Mahmud replied, “Brother asking ...

What values do we want to bequeath to our children?

What values do we want to bequeath to our children?

There are many reasons behind Blak and Black’s decision to attempt to identify and expose Australian Federal Police (AFP) corruption where we can, the main reason however is the relative power even the most junior AFP Constable has over an ordinary citizen; power that seems to be magnified when the AFP operate extra-territorially, What happened to Captain Fred Martens, Mr Julian Moti QC, the Solomon’s triumvirate and the Sogavare Government itself ...

Have the AFP been busted, yet again?

Have the AFP been busted, yet again?

I have been arguing since 1996 that it is unlikely that David Eastman is responsible for the murder of Colin Stanley Winchester APM (18 October 1933 – 10 January 1989). Winchester was an Assistant Commissioner in the Australian Federal Police (AFP) and commanded ACT Police, the community policing component of the AFP responsible for the Australian Capital Territory (ACT). On 10 January 1989, at about 9:15 pm he was shot ...

Aborigines and the Australian Justice System

Aborigines and the Australian Justice System

For very many Aboriginal Australians the phrase ‘Australian justice system’ is an oxymoron. There are any number of reasons, many of which are justified, why we as Aboriginal Australians think of the Australian ‘just-us’ system as being exactly as it says, a system that is just for us, which if you are an Aboriginal only serves to further entrench your marginalization. The following exchange between a Canberra based public prosecutor ...

Damning difference - the start of the slippery slope

Damning difference – the start of the slippery slope

A few months back I penned an article about the plight of Marlon Noble, an Indigenous intellectually disabled man consigned to the correctional justice system for a crime of dubious veracity. One commenter has recently left a reply arguing that Mr Noble’s plight is more related to that of his handicap, than one of colour. I disagree, although it is certainly part of the issue and one that challenges more ...

Why Australia should not be rewarded with a seat on the UN Security Council

My apologies for my tardiness in updating Blak and Black over the last week or so, I’ve been reviewing evidence with a former colleague and equally concerned citizen relating to the alleged theft of $130,000,000.00 from the ACT Home Loan Portfolio (“Portfolio”) and its laundering through a Sydney ‘massage parlour’. Also, this will be the last post for a few days as Blak and Black is migrating to a more ...

AusAIDing and Abetting Corruption

AusAIDing and Abetting Corruption

Since writing my article Australia in the Solomons: A case study in 21st Century Gunboat Diplomacy I have had the opportunity to do some more research into AusAID and its so called commitment to the Pacific region, a commitment which the former Attorney-General of the Solomon Islands Mr. Julian Moti QC referred to as “AusAIDing and Abetting Corruption” and with good reason. In 2010 The Sunday Telegraph conducted an investigation ...

Australia in the Solomons: A case study in 21st Century Gunboat Diplomacy

Update: Subsequent to writing this post the Solomon Start has published an article which confirms much of what Blak and Black has been arguing concerning RAMSI’s role in the Solomon Islands and the 2006 Honiara riots. The main purpose of Blak and Black is to attempt to bring to the world’s attention the hypocrisy and racism that inform contemporary Australian society. While Australia’s treatment of its Aboriginal and Torres Strait ...

Pius wrote in ALP corruption, a suicide in the AFP and death threats made against a three year old – Human Rights Australian style about the actions of certain Australian Federal Police (“AFP”) officers who were involved in intimidating a witness to corruption at the highest levels of the Australian Capital Territory Government and the Australian Labor Party.
