Four corners has exposed that Funeral Directors are robbing the dead. I am not surprised and the exposure should be seen for what it is, all part of a culture of plunder. The dodgy practices exposed on Four corners can be seen as the introductory ticket to the death ride. It has already begun when one enters the retirement village a business made and controlled by the legal industry. Russell Kennedy are leaders in this industry, providing advise to retirement village owners consulting with government and writing standards, all of which appear to be causing problems, as is being shown by the need for a very expensive lawyer run Royal Commission into the aged care sector.
So when you die in the nursing home you are shipped out by the preferred supplier known in business circles as the biggest briber unknown to your family, hope they knew which rings you were wearing and whether or not they were returned. Lucky you didn’t die at home on the mattress where you kept your cash, because you never know what happens there. Or in a room where you kept your valuable possessions, after all you are dead and there is know body around to check on what went missing. In a land born of plunder it is no wonder the the regulator casts his eye asunder and refuses to hear the thunder or more like the screams and tears of the bereaved family at seeing this blatant abuse of their loved one.
Oh watch out for you bank account and those phoney charges, of course you need life insurance, and health insurance, you may all of a sudden come back to the living?
And there is that Time Bomb the will. Where is the will and who wrote it, oh no it was that friendly lawyer from the friendly charity who she or he would mention on visits and point to those lovely daisies nicked from the nearby cemetery on Monday Morning, it was always Monday morning when they came. Oh shit they changed the will, the new executor is Lawyer XYZ working for the worlds most friendly people the charitable children of love and care.
So soon we are now on the ride to hell, in and out of the supreme court at $10,000 a day for the man in the wig. He said to me “A good estate is one where the is nothing left for the beneficiaries to waste. What did he mean by that?”
Australia is one nation but it`s citizens are bound under
eight separate jurisdiction just as
the eight legs of the spider. At its head sits the Federal Parliament who
determines how this dastardly beast weaves its legislative web.
We have recently seen a large number of issues arise that have required expensive and time consuming Royal Commissions and parliamentary inquiries into the disasters that are hurting our families, our communities and our nation as a whole. These inquiries spout forth numerous recommendations which if implemented with integrity could halt the decay and allow us to rebuild. The inquiries and Royal Commissions have investigated: The abuse of our children in Institutions. The abuse of our citizens by our banks and the financial services industry. The Inadequacies of the family court of Australia. The disaster that is ongoing in the building industry. The fiasco between Nicola Gobbo and the Victorian Police. The robbery of our main water resource along the Murray Darling basin. The reform of our Inheritance laws, just to name a few.
In every investigation a failure of those with the power to
act upon the warning signs screamed from the roof tops by the victims has been
identified as the root cause of the problem. Those with that power are the
regulators and the courts. The people who run those regulators and courts are
We as a nation have a very serious problem with regards to
the culture of hubris that is ingrained within this vital profession. The profession
itself is self-regulating, that is each state and territory has its own legal
regulator that is formed from the legal profession. When a consumer brings a
complaint to one of these bodies they find that instead of the complaint being investigated
the regulator will focus on how to dismiss the complaint. Note when making a
complaint to one of these institutions it is advisable to record everything
because they do have the capacity to create stories about your behaviour that
can lead to criminal charges being bought against you. If this happens you have
very little chance of success as who would believe that people of good character
could tell lies and getting a court to believe you is harder than entangling
the web that traps a fly. A persistent consumer can take the complaint to the
Ombudsman, another lawyer, and then to the Attorney General another lawyer. After discovering this dysfunctional system the
consumer is directed by this cartel to go and hire a lawyer.
Any naive person may think that this advice has credence and
will then be drawn into the vortex of litigation. In this vortex they will discover
the invisible web the spider has woven, a web called justice that traps them as
if they were a fly to be bled by the spiders offspring the lawyers in an
endless game of delay, incompetence and legal argument that is built upon the
science of stupid which defies common sense apart from feeding the financial
interests of the vested interest.
The Lawyer cartel monopolises legislative reform by: Doctoring the recommendations of the investigative process in favour of the vested interest prior to them being formed into legislation. Interpreting that legislation in the courts. Administrating that legislation during an expensive and drawn out court process.
This makes it impossible for the citizens, families and
communities of Australia to realise any positive change. To understand how this
mess has evolved one needs to revisit the origins of white settlement in
Australia on 18th to 22nd January 1888. This settlement was established as a
penal colony under maritime law; the white settlers were formed of two classes
of people, the convicts collected from the most oppressed inhabitants of Great
Briton and the Naval component who ran the prison. The original peoples were
ignored as the land was declared Terra Nullius, that is no original peoples and
no treaty was formed between those peoples and the invaders. A systemic
genocide was carried out upon those peoples with the spread of disease and the
use of military techniques, the basic principles of humanitarian law were non-existent
and respect for family and community within the legal structure of the colony were
Unfortunately this is the seed from which Australia was
formed and is very much alive and affecting all of the people who currently
live in this nation.
The legislative structure and the legal profession who
control the nation remain unaccountable through a self-regulatory system that
has allowed them to ignore the consumer rights of the people who pay them for
The culture of this legal spider needs to be obliterated and
replaced by a culture that respects our families and our communities by
ingraining these humanitarian principles into our laws. The regulators of the
practitioners of law need to be independent of the legal profession and only by
changing this culture will the regulatory system within Australian begin to
work for the citizens of this nation.
I have included a piece of writing by Corky Edwards which is
an apt description of how the situation really is.
This describes how the threat by Vic Roads to
desecrate a sacred area continues right up until this very second in time.
Colonial violence continues.
Djab Wurrung people declare “these are our
ancestor trees”. Violent settlers declare they will burn their ancestors,
just like they did before. And so they did.
Nothing has changed.
The absolute disrespect, contempt, and even
downright hatred of Aboriginal people in this colony is undeniable and
palpable. If they hate us, they don’t have to feel anything about their
treatment of us. If they hate us, they can blame us.
Yes all of you.
Colonisers love to absolve themselves of
responsibility for the past and current wrongdoings of this colony. Whether
denying any wrongdoings completely by making up a fake race of pygmies, saying
“every country has been invaded” like post-Tudor colonisation is the
same as the Romans or Vikings coming and going over time and leaving England to
the English. Or, whether they do the old “I’m not responsible for what
happened hundreds of years ago”. They all wash their hands of it. All the
while tying the blindfold tighter so as to not see what they themselves are
They happily perpetuate colonialism by forcing
colonial rule on us and browbeating us for not being happy about it, and then
say “wasn’t me!”. Trying to force us to exist in this colony just
like they do, fit this capitalist system, give up our rights to our land, our
way of life, our rights to be how we are and have always been is EXACTLY WHAT
THEIR ANCESTORS DID and makes them just as bad, Worse, because they have the
privilege of hindsight. They can see the damage colonialism did to us and they
still want to force it onto us. So yes you, all of you, You, Are, Responsible.
Deal with it. Or as they so eloquently love to put it, “get over it”.
They also love to confuse ancestor worship for
patriotism, yelling “PEOPLE DIED FOR THAT FLAG/SONG” and then ignore
their own grandma in a nursing home. They have no idea what love for ancestors
even means. They just use it as a guise for white nationalism, to boss blackies
around like the good old days. So any connection we have to ancestors is just
too foreign. They don’t even care about the ones that are still alive.
Our ways aren’t based on materialism. Our
spirituality isn’t selfish. So it’s all gibberish nonsense to them, our ways
backwards and silly. Get with the times, they reckon. So they climb all over it
and wear it down, spitting on us in the process. They debate it with an all-white
panel on morning TV. They post polls on Facebook and leave all the racist
comments up like we aren’t actual people and are just a simple matter of
opinion like whether you keep sauce in the fridge or not. They burn it down,
with no billions of dollars of donations in 24 hours. They bulldoze it to save
2 minutes of driving and a few minor alterations to the plans.
Our story means nothing. We mean nothing. We are
nothing. Because what we have can’t be measured in gold bullion, unless it’s
underground. Then they can declare a fake national emergency of child
endangerment and send in the army to tear our communities apart to get to our
land and sell it to their mining company donors on 99 year leases. Don’t worry
if they spend millions and a decade looking and find nothing in the
Intervention act, they still got the land. And please ignore the same man who
called the emergency on “child sex rings” giving a glowing character
reference to a convicted child rapist for his sentencing hearing, Completely
fine and normal and not indicative of anything suspicious at all.
This colony is a racist place. Always was and always
will be. You can’t build a house out of shit and expect it not to stink.
Don’t play with fire with a people who have been
using fire since before the white gene even mutated. We ARE the fire.
(•You can come and you can cry to me about how it’s
not you. But it is. If you’re crying to me instead of doing something to fight
for us, it is. If you’re not actively supporting us, it is. If your feelings
are hurt, it is. You want to prove it isn’t? Go fix our reef. Go fight for our
trees. Go fight for our rock. Go fight the people who say disgusting things
about us instead of fighting against me. Use your actions to prove it. I don’t
need you to tell me about it. That’s making the action more about how you look
than about who you’re doing it for, which makes it selfish and pointless. Just
go do it.
•And if you want to come fight me about this because
you’re angry, prepare to just be laughed at. You can’t hurt my feelings, honey.
I’ve been doing this for too long for anything you could say or do to be new or
significant. Don’t embarrass yourself.)
At a national level, the Law Society is engaging with the Law Council
of Australia in making representations to our federal politicians regarding the
future of the Federal and Family Courts, and in particular the Family Court as
a stand-alone court. The impact of the proposed changes cannot be understated.
It should remain a serious concern to all practitioners and indeed all
Australians and I urge members to use any influence that they can bring to bear
on Federal members of Parliament to make their feelings known. Although I have
brought specific attention to those matters particularly affecting the members
of the Profession themselves in their practices, we have continued to have a
good relationship with the media and have spoken on a wide range of topics
relating to rule of law matters and matters of interest to the public in
general. Indeed, so much so that certain members of the media felt that it was
completely alright to phone me for an interview about a bail reform paper put
forward by the Government at 9:00 am on New Years morning! Nonetheless, I have
taken the view that we do not need to express our thoughts on every matter.
Indeed, I believe that sometimes our message may get lost if we do so and that
it may be wise to confine our comments to matters of particular importance to
the rule of law and the interest of our members. In saying that in no way do I
seek to bind my successors in that view.

Thank you for reading, please share and one day soon we will
have a film that will convince us all to make our politicians work for us and
build a completely different legal system that does not permit lawyers to rob
families but instead to care for those people who are vulnerable at a moment in
