from Pastor Mel
Have you found people who aggressively proclaim themselves to be atheists to be angry people? Is it because they are denying something inherently human within themselves? Their mind can rationalize all sorts of reasons why God doesn’t exist, but their heart is saying something else.
In fact there’s a passage in the Bible, Psalm 14:1, that very bluntly addresses the issue of stubborn unbelief: “The fool says in his heart, ‘There is no God.’”
So the atheist, for whatever reason, willfully overrides that deep, spiritual, believing-beyond-what-is-known tendency in the heart of every human being made in the image of God. The atheist makes unbelief his code to live by.
But he’s foolish because there are many real benefits in believing in God and following his code. Yes, there are deep challenges too.
The atheist is also foolish because he denies the reality of God in all of human history. The Bible, and especially the New Testament, is not just another religious fairytale like the gods of Greece. It’s actual history involving real places and real people who witnessed the Son of God, the Messiah, the Christ, doing his miracles on earth. It’s a message that has influenced the entire globe at all levels from personal human experience to how societies operate.
“Ah,” the atheist says, “but now we have science!” OMG bro, wake up! Science is a mere tool to help us understand how things which already exist work e.g. the biology, chemistry and physics of nature. And the better we get at science, the more it shows us the incredible wonders of life like the DNA molecule that performs a multitude of intelligent, highly organised operations that make a mockery of the idea that life evolved at a cellular level by random, chance occurrences.
If you have problems understanding the God issue, be honest and be agnostic i.e. admit that you don’t know there is a God. But don’t be foolish and ignore the spiritual realm and what the Bible says about life and the universe. Actually, it’s not hard to find God if you go the mediator, Jesus. The third person of the trinity, the Holy Spirit, will help you find without having to see. So seek, and you will find.
Until next time…

The bloodless coup by communist China taking over Darwin Port seems set to continue as Chinese nationals move onto the Tip of Cape York Peninsula.
On a second visit to the Tip this week Chinese interests were shown the ruins of Pajinka Resort, nestled on about 700 acres of mostly undeveloped land , by members of the Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Wymarra tribe.
Local Aboriginal elders and genuine traditional owners for the area are aghast China could buy the three Perpetual Leases should the Department of Natural Resources allow the local government authority which holds the title in trust to be transferred.
A local Islander identity assisting the delegation, has applied to have the Northern Peninsula Area Regional Council transfer the lease into his name, which, according to local Aborigines, would allow it to be on-sold to Chinese interests.
A lease in perpetuity has no expiry date which means it can be held indefinitely.
The potential Chinese buyers have been reported taking photographs of the entire area including the rugged northern coastline sparking great security concerns.
It is believed state and federal authorities too are concerned about the Chinese delegation getting their hands on such a valuable and strategic site.
The Wymarra delegation has been proposing a new resort complete with a Greg Norman-designed golf course within sight of the iconic Tip.

Royal Commission required for age pension funds
Aged Pension Deception
Are you an aged person aged 65 or more and applied for an aged pension, when you have been industrious for many years and accumulated capital losses as contained in a family trust?
Have you then been told the following; Under the social security act, you are not able to receive a age care pension because you have been honest and declared the accumulated losses in the family trust which are now deemed to earn at an interest (usually 4%) a certain income (of money that does not exist and can not be spent). A typical scenario is an accumulated capital losses of say $750,000 then at 4% interest there is deemed to exist a mythical income of $30,000 per annum. Therefore this income prevents you from receiving an aged pension. Have you then been told that if you write out these accumulated capital losses, these losses are deemed to still earn this mythical income for 5 years. Maybe if you do this and re-apply after a further 5 years, you may be eligible for the Aged Pension.
Have you then been told that should you make any further objections, the social security officer would report this undeclared income to the taxation department and they would pursue the unpaid taxation, send you bankrupt, take your house from you and give you an imprisonment sentence for conspiring to defraud the Commonwealth of Tax Revenue. This scenario was established by the Hawk – Keating Government as a typical piece of Marxist legislation to cheat citizens out aged care pensions.
Comment… the aged pension was instituted in 1948 via a levy of 7.5% of personal income tax paid so at the age of 65 years, the aged pension was already paid for and actually owned by the Pensioner. These funds were kept sacred by all Federal Governments until Hawke and Keating 1980s and it is believed that this Government declassified these funds and transferred them to general social security and spent it all, subsequently inventing worker based superannuation to compensate. Should this be Correct, then it is not correct to assume that aged pensions are paid for by the Tax Payers as these pensions have already been paid for by the recipients. This scenario is worthy of a Royal Commission Surely?

SOLDOTNA, Alaska — A Satanic Temple member who won the right to open a regional Alaska government meeting declared “Hail Satan” during her first invocation, prompting about a dozen officials and attendees to walk out.
Tuesday’s invocation that started the meeting of the Kenai Peninsula Borough also spurred a protest outside the southern Alaska borough’s administration building that drew 40 people, The Peninsula Clarion newspaper reported .
The Satanic Temple unveils its statue of Baphomet, a winged-goat creature, at a rally for the first amendment in Little Rock, Ark., Thursday, Aug. 16, 2018. The Satanic Temple wants to install the statue on Capitol grounds as a symbol for religious freedom after a monument of the Biblical Ten Commandments was installed in 2017.

Hi, we are group of Quiet Australians in Melbourne who are appalled that no one (not even one of our tax-payer funded Uni academics ) is debating Bruce Pascoe and his book Dark Emu and Aboriginal ‘farming”. Everyone down south is just swallowing it up. In response to his new Children’s version, which is set for a print run of 600,000 to get into schools to indoctrinate the next generation of Aussies to hate their country, we have started a review website at
where we are gathering evidence to debunk his “fiction”. If you like our site we hope you spread the word and ask your readers to contribute any evidence they may have to support our full review of his A Very Dark Emu Indeed!!

Last Tuesday, Project Veritas broke a story about Pinterest’s sneaky censorship tactics. I had no idea that my website was involved until the following day, when a subscriber told me she’d heard about it on Tim Pool’s podcast.
FKTV has never been called “Fake News” by the likes of the Poynter Institute, Wikipedia, PropOrNot nor by any other (Soros-financed) fact-checking organizations but Pinterest has now done is something blatantly deceitful. They have placed the ForbiddenKnowledgeTV.net domain on their blacklist of pornographic websites, along with other alt news, natural health and pro-life websites, like ZeroHedge.com and liveaction.org. Pinterest users were blocked from posting the FKTV web addresses on their site.
I have asked them to explain why to me and I’m awaiting a reply from ZenDesk.
This news came just as I learned that one of my favorite YouTube creators, Black Pigeon Speaks, with nearly 500,000 subscribers had his YouTube channel deleted without any warning. Those who’ve seen BPS’ great work on this website know that he never engages in any hate speech or profanity.*
With thousands of accounts deleted from YouTube and Facebook in recent weeks, I was beginning to feel very demoralized. Then I saw Project Veritas’ interview of the Pinterest whistleblower. Eric Cochran is the young engineer who came forward. He explains here the inner peace that he felt when Pinterest fired him:
“I could live in the comforts of life and I could go on for 80 years and make money…and then I’ll just fall to ashes. I think that’s how a lot of people live their lives and it’s hard to break out of that rhythm, there’s like an inertia…to me, this was just such an obvious choice because I saw wrongdoing…this is something that, no matter what happens, no matter what I lose, it’ll mean something after I’m gone…
“All the things that we think are so important, like our status on social media even our reputations online, they don’t matter and that’s really how the tech establishment controls people…fear, intimidation that you’re gonna be a social outcast but those things aren’t real…it’s just fake stuff and there’s so many people in the real world who do support you and who do have your back and you’re making all the difference for the country and for the world and for humanity when you come forward and you tell people what’s really going on inside of these dark censorship bureaus.”

The United States National Security Advisor under President Barack Obama, Susan Rice, requested that GCHQ continue its pre-election spying on President Trump, his offices, and his residence at 725 Fifth Avenue in New York—an illegal act, but one supported fully by her ‘boss’, Barack Hussein Obama.
In fact, closed door testimony and corroborating e-mails ordered disclosed by a court under a Freedom of Information Act request, a senior FBI agent confirmed that ‘The White House is running this.’
Clintons Collude to Frame Trump
Hillary had to become president to prevent investigation of other crimes. She and Obama signed off on a deal to sell the Russians roughly 20% of U.S. uranium stores to be used for nuclear weapons in a pay-to-play scheme with Russia.
Her husband, Bill, made US$1/2 million for speeches in Russia, met with Putin on it, and their Clinton Foundation was paid $145 million by the same parties to the illegal transaction.
With but one exception, the Mainstream Media completely covered up or ignored the Uranium One scandal, even though it may be the greatest act of treason in my home nation’s history.
Hannity Attacked for Truthing
Only Australia’s News Corp allowed its U.S. affiliate, FOX News, to cover it, which caused an immediate campaign of terror against News Anchor, Sean Hannity, for doing so.
He was smeared publicly, received death threats, and shrill voices from inside and outside government called for his dismissal and ruin.
FOX News anchor, Sean Hannity was virulently attacked by others in his profession as part of the Clinton/Obama cover-up. They all remain silent on Uranium One.
Possible Treason from the Obama Administration
But now we have perhaps a greater act of treason—by the same bad actors. We can prove that the Obama Administration used foreign spies and agencies to begin what was nothing short of an attempted coup.
They intended to:
1) defeat President Trump using a knowingly false and salacious ‘dossier’ paid for by the Democrat party and Hillary Clinton’s presidential campaign employing foreign spies and Russian collaboraters to produce it
2) in the unlikely event that Trump won, take him down with a FBI/CIA fabricated hoax about ‘Russian collusion’ — something that the Obama White House, The Democratic National Committee, Australian diplomats and ASIS, the British Government, the Clinton campaign, GCHQ, the CIA, FBI, NSA and Russian sources, actually did, while pasting the narrative on their opposition—the man they claimed was ‘too dangerous’ to be President— Donald J. Trump.
In closing, I wish to examine that promoted narrative that President Trump is ‘dangerous’ as the world’s media has sycophantically fallen in line with that story—and that is likely to be all you have heard. But as most such co-ordinated narratives fail upon the slightest inspection, so does this one.
Trump Boosts the Economy – By Taking the Government’s Boot off its Neck
First let’s look at the economy. Using the most rudimentary of economic principles, President Trump turned a stagnant mess into the most vibrant in the world in just two years.
No nation in history has ever taxed and regulated itself into prosperity—a perfect description of President Obama’s failed eight years at the the helm—and all President Trump had to do was leave more money in the people’s pockets and slash regulations.
For every new hindrance bureacracy put in the way of success in the form of new regulations, Trump’s team cut 22 others—and made it a rule that for every new one, at least two had to go.
Tens of thousands of stifling and mostly stupid rules went away over night, and the multiplier effect on the dollars left in the public’s hands through massive tax reductions immediately started working.
A dollar left in the hands of those who earned it, tends to benefit the economy in a roughly four-fold effect. I buy a new refrigerator with my extra money. The person who sold it to me opens another store.
The new store hires more people, and so on. A $250 billion dollar tax cut can be expected to create a trillion in new activity due to the multiplier effect—ultimately creating even greater tax revenue for government than before even at a higher rate. And guess what, it has.
Money stolen by government in the form of new taxes—like the Obamcare tax, for example—had a negative multiplier effect of roughly 1.3. A dollar taken, not only misses out on the upside, but puts a drag on existing economic activity.
The economy of the United States has added $9 trillion in value since the President made these simple moves.

Even if you disable GPS, deactivate phone location tracking, and turn off your phone, it’s still possible for Google and the NSA to monitor your every move.
Police have illegally been using Stingray devices to eavesdrop on your calls for years.
Over the last two decades, cellphone use has become an everyday part of life for the vast majority of people around the planet. Nearly without question, consumers have chosen to carry these increasingly smart devices with them everywhere they go. Despite surveillance revelations from whistleblowers like Edward Snowden, the average smartphone user continues to carry the devices with little to no security or protection from privacy invasions.
Americans make up one of the largest smartphone markets in the world today, yet they rarely question how intelligence agencies or private corporations might be using their smartphone data. A recent report from the New York Times adds to the growing list of reasons why Americans should be asking these questions. According to the Times, law enforcement have been using a secret technique to figure out the location of Android users. The technique involves gathering detailed location data collected by Google from Android phones, iPhones, and iPads that have Google Maps and other Google apps installed.
The location data is stored inside a Google database known as Sensorvault, which contains detailed location records of hundreds of millions of devices from around the world. The records reportedly contain location data going back to 2009. The data is collected whether or not users are making calls or using apps.
The Electronic Frontier Foundation (EFF) says police are using a single warrant—sometimes known as a “geo-fence” warrant—to access location data from devices that are linked to individuals who have no connection to criminal activity and have not provided any reasonable suspicion of a crime. Jennifer Lynch, EFF’s Surveillance Litigation Director, says these searches are problematic for several reasons.
“First, unlike other methods of investigation used by the police, the police don’t start with an actual suspect or even a target device—they work backward from a location and time to identify a suspect,” Lynch wrote. “This makes it a fishing expedition—the very kind of search that the Fourth Amendment was intended to prevent. Searches like these—where the only information the police have is that a crime has occurred—are much more likely to implicate innocent people who just happen to be in the wrong place at the wrong time. Every device owner in the area during the time at issue becomes a suspect—for no other reason than that they own a device that shares location information with Google.”
The problems associated with Sensorvault have also concerned a bipartisan group of lawmakers who recently sent a letter to Google CEO Sundar Pichai. The letter from Democrats and Republicans on the U.S. House Energy and Commerce Committee gives Google until May 10 to provide information on how this data is used and shared. The letter was signed by Democratic Representatives Frank Pallone and Jan Schakowsky and Republicans Greg Walden and Cathy McMorris Rodgers.
Google has responded to the report from the Times by stating that users opt-in to collection of the location data stored in Sensorvault. A Google representative also told the lawmakers that users “can delete their location history data, or turn off the product entirely, at any time.” Unfortunately, this explanation falls flat when one considers that Android devices log location data by default and that it is notoriously difficult to opt-out of data collection.
No matter what promises Google makes, readers should remember that back in 2010, the Washington Post published a story focusing on the growth of surveillance by the National Security Agency. That report detailed an NSA technique that “enabled the agency to find cellphones even when they were turned off.” The technique was reportedly first used in Iraq in pursuit of terrorist targets. Additionally, it was reported in 2016 that a technique known as a “roving bug” allowed FBI agents to eavesdrop on conversations that took place near cellphones.
Shorten’s energy crisis in the making for Labor
Robert Gottliebsen’s article, in the ‘Australian’, 11/4/19, may force the many potential buyers of EV’s to proceed with caution:
The danger came home to him, when he met up with an affluent, long-time Melbourne acquaintance who lives in a street where there are six Tesla cars. If all six proud Electric Vehicle owners try to charge their EV battery at the same time, the power goes out in the street, because the grid fails – some times, it fails when just three, or four charge at the same time.
You see, our Power Grid is designed to transmit predictable, regular waves of power through it’s wires and transformers. But… suddenly, we began generating large amounts of power from different directions, and much of this is intermittent and based on less predictable sources, such as wind and sunshine. So, instead of being regular waves of electrons travelling in one direction, – choppy electron flows hit the transformers, causing greatly increased operating temperatures.
You don’t have to be very bright to know that most nights, up to 70% of our population habitually switch on the ‘aircon’, & go to the shower, before cooking the evening meal, (often, while the family are watching TV). The majority of these actions occurs somewhere between 5pm & 10pm, and most rely on power from the grid.
In Bill Shorten’s ‘new green world’, there’ll be yet another task – i.e. Recharging the EV battery in 50% of homes, probably for many hours, after dark.
Statistics reveal, Australian households currently use, on average, approx. 20k/Wt per day. By comparison, a full charge for an electric vehicle battery needs about 60k/Wt – That’s THREE times the normal household consumption. Power Bills could treble.
So, the progression from conventional vehicle to an EV involves :
- a) Buying the pure-electric vehicle ….let’s say, at least $45,000,
- b) Installing a suitable wall-mounted Charger ….let’s say $13,000,
- c) Saving up for the annual Energy Bill – let’s say, an extra $3,000 per annum….
- d) Check that there aren’t many EV’s in your street – or you’ll be wasting your money !
That’s a total cost over $60,000…. (the average family may choke on this).
Don’t expect to trade in your old beast – There’ll be thousands of rusty cars everywhere.
Bill says he expects there will be about 600,000 pure electric vehicles on Australian roads by 2030. Yet, the Labor/Greens Alliance are committed to gradually close Coal-Fired Power Stations, the source of most reliable, base-load power.
Bill also says fully subsidised Renewables will provide CHEAPER Energy prices. SURE.
What plan does Bill have to DOUBLE Australia’s electricity supply to enable half the population to regularly charge their Electric Vehicle. Well, BILL hasn’t mentioned it.
THAT’S BECAUSE IT’S PURE FANTASY…..Bullshit Bill can only guarantee Energy Chaos.
Sabotage of hundreds of election signs by Greens supporters, a firebomb, a stolen trailer, prosecution of a union member and a protracted offensive against independent candidates by News Ltd’s Cairns Post newspaper so far have marred the 2019 federal election campaign.
Candidates said although they knew they would be ignored or maligned by the Cairns Post, the newspaper’s exceptionally favourable promotion of sitting Liberal member Warren Entsch has gone far beyond expectations.
Entsch was the champion of gay marriage legislation last year which divided the nation on religious principles. Analysis of the plebiscite results since the passing of legislation has revealed the results were dodgy at the very least.
Vote Australia analysed the Australian Electoral Commission database from where the Australian Bureau of Statistics got its addresses. More then 248,000 envelopes marked “return to sender not known at this address” came back to the ABS.
The ABS did not give these names to the AEC enabling it to cleanse the roll.
These fictitious names remain on the electoral roll which allows those having access to these entries to register a dud vote at the federal election, a ploy developed by the Labor and Liberal parties some 30 years ago.
At the last federal election according to the AEC, at least 18,000 persons voted more than once in support of the ALP slogan ‘vote early and vote often comrade.’
The Townsville seat of Herbert, being hotly contested by Clive Palmer, was ‘won’ by the ALP at the last election by just 37 votes.
In spite of hundreds of requests to Prime Minister Morrison from constituents, he has steadfastly refused to follow the recommendations of the Joint Standing Committee on Electoral Matters to make voters provide identification when voting.
Leichardt is a marginal seat and voting fraud could be a lifeline for Warren Entsch or the saviour of ALP candidate and union hack Elida Faith.
Katters Australian Party candidate and charter boat skipper Dan McCarthy now is being attacked through social media by the Electrical Trades Union which is a sure indicator of his surge in the polls.
Once upon a time such election frivolity occurred only in corrupt Asian or African dictatorships, but it seems these tin pot nations had their training upgraded in Australia.
