Do Freemasons and Fabians still rule the roost?
Freemasonic control of police forces has been around for a long time. In Australia and the UK many of the police hierarchy are members of a Freemasonic Lodge. In 1961 the first Queensland Police Lodge was formed in Brisbane with more than 80 active police officers meeting to form Vigilance 494 Lodge.
The Lodge was consecrated in June 1961 and initially met at the Kedron Masonic Temple, later to moving to the Petrie Terrace Masonic Temple (next to the Petrie Terrace Police Barracks), and finally to the Stones Corner Masonic Centre where it still meets today.
The Lodge has recorded a total of 318 members to date and 218 of them have been Police Officers. The Foundation Master, Norwin William Bauer MVO, QPM, GM became Commissioner of Police. Three of the original 66 Foundation Members are still members.
But it should be noted there are many more police officers who are members of other lodges around the state and across the nation.
It came as no surprise in the early eighties that aspiring Liberal or National Party political candidates were required to become lodge members before their nominations were accepted.
It is no secret either that aspiring Labor candidates had to be members of the International Socialist Organisation (ISO), the Fabian Society or other secretive groups to gain endorsement particularly in the federal arena.

The entire Bjelke Petersen Cabinet between 1968 and 1987 were Freemasons or they would not have been nominated for the Ministry. This follows a similar tradition in the UK Parliament.
However Bjelke Petersen was not a member. He once told this scribe after he was deposed by then leading light Freemason and National Party Chairman Sir Robert Sparkes he was “disgusted” at his treatment by Sparkes and some Liberal MP’s.
He said “those dashed Freemasons” were responsible for his demise.
A number of senior police officers appearing before the Fitzgerald Inquiry, 1987 – 1989, into government and police corruption were revealed as Freemasons.
It has been said that the Lodge is losing influence in political and judicial circles in modern Australia however the brotherhood still exists in the ‘job’ according to retired police officers.
Lodge activities are not confined to a group of men or women (Order of the Eastern Star) huddling in a corner conspiring against others. They look after their own by building retirement homes and other worthy community sponsorships, generally flying under the radar.
In those heady days the Lodge ran Queensland. The State today owes its economic prosperity to the reign of the National Party which opened up the coal industry and balloted land for family farmers right across the brigalow belt, some of the most fertile land in the world.
The Nationals were leaders in Aboriginal welfare and under then Minister Bob Katter created long term leases in the Torres Strait enabling Aborigines and Torres Strait Islanders home ownership. In some communities there may be leases (or lease applications) under the then Aborigines and Torres Strait Islanders (Land Holding) Act 1985 (often called ‘Land Holding Act’ and ‘Katter’ leases)
The Nationals built dams and opened beef roads, made cheap funds available for family farmers, beef and sheep producers through the Agricultural Bank and created vast, new remote electricity networks which saw production surge to unprecedented levels across the entire agricultural sector.
The Nationals today are but a shadow of their early compatriots whose membership has dwindled to a handful. Today the Nationals, aka Liberals wearing Akubras, support the Climate Change hoax, the totally corrupt Ukranian President Zelensky, carbon dixoide reduction and Covid jabs. They no longer represent the bush and are largely a group of flunkies without a roost.
Then the rot set in when Labor Premier Wayne Goss, a solicitor, was elected in 1989, post-Fitzgerald, forming government which immediately set about to unwind the economic successes of the National Party.
Goss and the ALP hated the bush and the Nationals for having kept them out of power for a generation and proceeded to kill off regional governmental services and start the deliberate break down of bush culture evolved over the previous 150 years.
This culture-busting by the ALP continues today. Since 1987 not a dam or new highway has been built outside of the Brisbane triangle. Their Marxist legislative agenda has curtailed or prohibited many rural social activities and industry, the latest being animal welfare laws which in effect will prohibit rodeos and horse racing over time.
Now the Marxist Premier is trying to tighten up the already most restrictive gun laws in the world.
Land development all but ceased in 1992 when then ALP State Attorney General Rod Welford signed off on the United Nations Agenda 21 treaty designed to shape Local Government By-Laws and reform and consolidate Shire Councils making them rubber stamps for State Government environmental policies by prohibiting or to stymy regional development.
The unintelligent voters of Brisbane keep returning the ALP, with help from proven voter fraud which will be accelerated now that China has been given our state electoral roll.
In true Fabian style, the ALP by gradualism, has turned this once prosperous state into a socialist enclave, all the while enriching ALP mates that would make the clandestine activities of the Old-Guard Nationals seem like a Sunday school picnic.
Former Senator Len Harris exposes the extinguishing and shredding of all freehold title deeds by Labor Government
Goss shredded parchment deeds now Palaszczuk is tearing up paper titles
Land ownership deed of grant in fee simple no longer available in Queensland
- From 1 October 2019, paper certificates of title will no longer be used and will cease to be an instrument under the Land Title Act
- From 1 October 2019, an equitable mortgage will no longer be created by leaving a certificate of title with a mortgagee
- A number of other minor amendments to the Land Title Act are highlighted
On 26 March 2019 the Queensland Parliament passed the Land, Explosives and Other Legislation Amendment Act 2019 (Amending Act). The Amending Act introduces significant amendments to the Land Title Act 1994 (Qld) (LT Act) which sees paper certificates of title becoming redundant as part of the push towards a completely electronic conveyancing system in Queensland.
The practical effect of these amendments is that as of 1 October 2019, the Registrar will not be able to issue paper certificates. There will also no longer be a requirement to lodge existing certificates in the Titles Office for future dealings with the land to which they relate. As a result, paper certificates will not provide evidence of an owner’s indefeasible title over property, and there will be no requirement to deliver paper certificates of title at settlement.
A raft of amendments will be made to the LT Act to give effect to the Amending Act. Although many of those changes only reflect the removal of references to certificates of title as contained in the LT Act, some of the more substantive changes include:
- Removal of section 154 of the LT Act. This means that, where an instrument (for example, a transfer of land) is sought to be lodged and a paper certificate exists, the purchaser will no longer be required to lodge any certificate of title for cancellation with that transfer.
- An instrument (that has not already been rejected) lodged before 1 October 2019 but not registered because the paper certificate was not returned, may be registered despite noncompliance with section 154. For example, where a mortgage was lodged over land prior to 1 October 2019 without the certificate of title, after 1 October 2019, the Registrar can register that dealing, without the certificate of title having ever been lodged.
- A certificate of title will cease to be an instrument under the LT Act, and as such, will no longer be evidence of the indefeasible title for the lot upon which it is issued. The electronic title maintained by the Titles Registry will be the record of ownership.
The amendments also have ramifications for the creation of equitable mortgages over property. Currently, section 75 of the LT Act states that an equitable mortgage can be created by leaving a paper certificate with the mortgagee. Under the amendments, that will no longer be possible from 1 October 2019.
However, the omission of section 75 does not alter rights or obligations arising under an existing equitable mortgage created prior to 1 October 2019. A mortgagee wanting to enforce their security under an existing equitable mortgage arising pursuant to section 75 will still be required to prove that the equitable mortgage was created by the provision of a certificate of title. Furthermore, such an equitable mortgagee will still be required to enforce their security through an order of the Court.
