Maybe cost-blowouts of Rates, Interest, Power, Fuel & Food will do the trick!!

Councils are trying to impose Recession-rated rate hikes to support an international agenda which just taxes the local mugs. Leeton Shire Council, for example, is trying to get a 52% “R-rated” rise over 2 years, with a fall-back position of 20% over 2 years. 26% annual inflation at worst, and 10% at best, which will only be the tip of the iceberg if Councils keep kowtowing to the UN/WEF dictates by imposing these totalitarian taxes, and central banks keep driving interest up.

According to the Australian Local Government Association (, the 17 “transformational” UN Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) to “tackle our social, economic and environmental challenges”, are being taken on by Local Government. Globally, Mayors are leading the way, it boasts because in September 2015, at the SDG Summit, Mayors from 40 countries met and declared their support and intention to drive the SDGs in a declaration of cities.

Actually, it was well under way long before 2015, because the United Nations have been planning the demise of our Local Councils for many decades, aided and abetted by politicians and bureaucrats who have been feted at UN funded gala events, and introduced to the “best way” to do things, (ie international best practice, so our bureaucrats think they are up with the best, doing the right thing). So far, despite three referendums on the subject, “the people” have decided to keep their local government (an arm of State governments, ie, not State Corporations). However, the UN and those who know better have been busy circumventing the law to suit themselves, and take power out of our hands. Councils are no longer owned and operated by the people, for the people, with elected Councillors to do our bidding.

Many will remember what’s generally referred to as the Tasmanian Dam Case (1983) – a watershed moment for Australia, when the High Court made a decision that because the Commonwealth Government had entered into various international treaties, agreements and conventions under the External Affairs Power of the Constitution (S51 [xxix]), then it could over-ride the State’s rights.

Part I: Councils Lighting a Fire under Ratepayer Bums – J Bird 16/10/2022

Since then, we’ve signed a plethora of these agreements, and totally eroded our Constitution, our freedoms, and our rights. What we, the Aussie people want is of no concern any more. Effectively, UN law now over-rules our Common law by default. AND, rest assured, the UN has been VERY busy while our pollies sleep, or are compromised.

Our very muddy and divisive Water Act (2007) is driven by the international agreements we have signed – all relating to eco/climate or migratory birds. Furthermore, I was the first person in Australia to point out in my various submissions regarding water that the Act also, in tacking on words to the effect “and any other relevant treaty”, could mean FUTURE TREATIES which haven’t been thought of yet. Thus, more mess and red tape to unravel, at the expense of those of us living and working in rural and regional Australia.

I remind you what two High Court Judges on the Tasmanian Dam Case said, who in 1983 could foresee this as well:

“…It is no exaggeration to say that what is emerging is a sophisticated network of international arrangements directed to the personal, economic, social and cultural development of all human beings. The effect of investing the Parliament with power through section 51 (xxix) in all these areas would be transfer to the Commonwealth of virtually unlimited power in almost every conceivable aspect of life in Australia, including health and hospitals, the work place, law and order, education and recreational and cultural activity to mention but a few ….”

Judge Wilson

“…There would be no field of power which the Commonwealth could not invade, and the federal balance achieved by the Constitution could be entirely destroyed”.

Justice Gibbs

Yet Justice Lionel Murphy thought this wouldn’t be enough! He said “…Australia would be an International cripple unable to participate fully in the emerging world order….” (being fully aware that we were committed to World Government because we signed a UN Agreement under UNCTAD (UN Conference on Trade and Devt) – the Declaration for the Establishment of a New International Economic Order adopted by the UN General Assembly in 1974.)

We have not been vigilant, while the UN ploughed on taking our rights and freedoms over many years – very aggressively after Lima and then Rio when Agenda 21 emerged under UNCED (UN Conference on Environment & Devt). That was a “comprehensive plan of action to be taken globally, national and locally by organisations of the UN system, Governments, and Major Groups in every area in which human impacts on the environment”. That means a “World State” using “sustainable” programs driven by Local Government.

Does that remind you of Judges Wilson & Gibbs’ comments?

Agenda 21 has morphed to Agenda 30 [ie 2030] and Paris now, so we have the WEF implementing their “Great Reset”. Trump at least got in their way; consequently people are now waking up all over the world as to what these elites have done to us, and are fighting back. Big time!

Australian governments of both major parties followed the Lima Declaration (1975) with disastrous results, exporting jobs and industry to developing countries (predominantly China), and set us on the path of dependence on imports (eg from China) while decimating our industries. Farmers and family businesses were bankrupted; banks, conducting, or in on the act, raked in the interest, and today we continue to reap the agenda sown by the UN and compliantly implemented by governments, as we are on the brink of their latest financial and societal collapse to bring in the elite’s “Great Reset”.

The “environmental movement” that may have gone nowhere was bolstered to usher in our compliance by the Club of Rome, formed in 1968 and often described as a “crisis think-tank specialising in crisis creation”. The purpose of this was to create a crisis that would unite the world and by “gradualism” (the long game), conditioning us to accept their “global solutions” to our (created) “local problems”. (Some may remember when the Club of Rome decided that Egypt didn’t have to pay our Wheat Board for our wheat. Who were they to make that decision???!)

In a report by the Council of the Club of Rome, “The First Global Revolution”, they said “In searching for a common enemy against whom we can unite, we came up with the idea of pollution, the threat of global warming, water shortages, famine and the like, would fit the bill….. All these dangers are caused by human intervention.”

p75 Sound familiar?? Fifty years later and $zillions of UN money (funded by us), and we are reaping their rewards to our detriment as they usher in their Great Reset; it’s infiltrated down through all levels of government, and affecting us at local council levels.

A 52%, or even the fallback 20% Special Rate Variation is just assisting the Great Reset, and your advancement to owning nothing, while the “elites” who own the global media tell you what to think, and the banks or financial institutions (who we allow preferential trading terms over anyone else, and pay them for the privilege!!), hike interest, foreclose, and become owners of your property, or sell off to their elite mates. No doubt you’ll be happy, with a brain adjustment so you see it their way!

These SDGs have been overlayed over all council plans, often window-dressed innocuously as ‘biodiversity’, ‘bushfire’, ‘flood’ (= increases to your insurance premiums), gender equality, green energy, sustained and inclusive economic growth, reduced inequality, climate action, water, land, and public- private partnerships. They always sound good, but in general, you can say that whatever the UN is telling you they mean, it means the opposite.

We need to ask local Councils, what has been the cost of implementing the SDGs to OUR local council? (I bet they have no idea, it’s SO endemic now!)

Ask too, what is the ongoing cost of our local council in following these UN directives and continued implementation of these SDGs? I’m willing to bet it’s close to the the 52% increase required! They should just stop it, and work for the Aussie people, not the UN, who are un-elected.

Aussie Councillors need to get a handle on this. So do our local Parliamentary Representatives. They are completely clueless, or they’d be speaking out, if not compromised, or perhaps one of the graduates of the WEF “Young Leaders” program, which Schwab boasts infiltrate Cabinets and bureaucracies across the globe. Of course, the sessions the States run for aspiring local councillors are run by the people pushing this agenda, and they railroad well-meaning community-minded people into thinking that they have to follow the UN dictates which the State is pushing about how Council works, thus usurping our system of governance.

The World Bank, the IMF, the WTO and WHO, in cahoots with Big Media and Big Pharma mates with all the UN agreements, foremost being the Paris accord, of which we are part, are using “climate change” and “Sustainable Development” goals to usher in a monetary reset which will mean they will not only control the global financial system (they already do), but nearly every aspect of your life. You WILL lose equity in/or your property with the financial Great Reset they have planned. Their next planned CRASH is in free-fall now.

This CONCERNS YOU, it’s YOUR LOSS of property/rights, YOUR well-earned money going into THEIR black hole, and YOUR freedom so do your research, don’t take my word for it. You are not that far away from losing it all via an induced global DEPRESSION on the heels of Covid19. You could say that REAL INFLATION is half of the 52% proposed rise, and you wouldn’t be far off!!

There’s a not-so-secret war being waged against us – and many world leaders, including Prince Charles have echoed World Economic Forum’s (WEF) Chair, Klaus Schwab’s sentiments in his book “COVID-19: The Great Reset” to “make good use of the pandemic” and “not letting the crisis go to waste”. It’s to be ushered in under Covid, because, as Schwab’s offsider Yuval Noah Harrari proudly asserts, “humans are now hackable animals” (that’s if they had the jabbadabbadoo). Harrari says the idea that humans have freewill, is over. (This is where our churches have let us down badly – very few will stand for anything now.)

Harrari said Covid-19 is critical because this is what convinces people to “accept TOTAL biometric surveillance”. “We need, not just to monitor people, but we need to monitor what is happening UNDER their skin.” He’s happy that “mass surveillance systems” have been established in “even democratic countries”.

Local Councils are helping to achieve this, but they do not understand they do NOT have the Common- law Constitutional power to do this. They have usurped that power, but you, as Ratepayers and local people, can take it back.

Ratepayers have to reverse this, and LIGHT A FIRE UNDER YOUR FRIENDLY COUNCIL instead of letting them do it to us.
