Validity of the Australia Act 1986 comes into play
Litigants in all four levels of Australian courts have long complained about spending sometimes hundreds of thousands of dollars for lawyers and counsel to wade through thousands of pages of the Corporation law or any other law only to have a single judge throw out their case.
This time around a high profile victim of judicial chicanery, the erstwhile senator, Rod Culleton, wants natural justice after his brush with a bankruptcy finding.
A single judge of The High Court of Australia, or the Federal Supreme Court, on March 2, 2017 struck out Culleton’s appeal against bankruptcy, previously handed down by the Full Bench of the Federal Court.
“I am outraged and disappointed Justice Patrick Keane of the High Court did not ever read my written submissions yet he handed down his finding in spite of me asking for more time to prepare,” Mr Culleton said.
Coincidentally, March 2, 2017 was the 12 month anniversary when he was convicted of larceny in absentia in the Armidale Magistrates Court over the disappearance of a truck key worth $7.50, a charge for which he would not ever have been jailed.
“My counsel clearly told Justice Keane that the High Court did not have jurisdiction to deal with my position in the senate,” he said.
“Counsel told the court only the senate could deal with it and Justice Keane only had to read Section 47 of the Constitution which says any question over the qualification of a senator or a member of either House, ‘….shall be determined by the House in which the question arises.’
“The High Court says it gets its power from the unlawful Australia Act 1986 which was introduced two years after a referendum of Australian people said they did not want the Commonwealth to give its powers to the States.
“This referendum failed but here we have the High Court using powers the states should not have such as the denial of juries.”
The senate should be dealing with the validity of the Australia Act 1986 and this would result in Western Australia getting its fair share of GST revenue and preventing the sale of Australian freehold land to foreign governments.
“The people continue to say no to foreign buyers but the Liberals and Labor keep selling off our land,” he said.
“There is a huge cloud over the judicial system and my matter should be used as an example in the senate to clean it up.”
Comment from a reader, Howard, which is worthy of publication:
To hell with them alright, they are unfaithful usurpers and abusers of power who themselves will not acknowledge or respect law unless it is their own invention but they claim the claims of true law yet not only ignore their vows to the queen who evidently sets the example by ignoring her vows to God (legislatively recognised as the Lord Jesus Christ) and together they walk hand in hand with the Vatican to enforce legislated law that has been invented in parliament by a code that recognises the roman pontiff as God and thus, these usurpers embrace and endorse the very entity that once was universally recognised as the anti Christ eg true enemy of the legitimate head of the true and legitimate commonwealth. Whilst brutally enforcing their law they claim the authority from which their law comes doesn’t really matter. We have been manipulated into a western roman government system but in fact our legitimate government should be decidedly Christian , thus we are meant to have rights and to be ruled by moral principle but instead commercial contracts are being brutally and deceptively forced on us and that is what happened to our right of self determination. Once we are manipulated into the situation where an accused is considered guilty unless they prove otherwise as is typical of many state penalty based systems like traffic fines, then we have lost self determination. It means you can wake in the morning having stayed at home and ‘determined’ to not get involved in anything, yet, another can accuse you and you are required to defend or pay up. In such a situation (for example) you have no say in your involvement and no determination in your life, the state takes over.
Federal Member for Kennedy Bob Katter today rallied against changes to the voting system in the Senate as the Commonwealth Electoral Amendment Bill 2016 was debated in Parliament, saying it was a sneaky trick to ensure the major parties have all of the say.
The Bill was introduced into the Lower House on Monday, with the Government making no secret it is designed to reduce the number of minor parties in the Senate. The Bill reportedly has the support of the Greens and Senator Nick Xenophon.
“Everyone knows the major parties are controlled by the party machine, which is controlled by the major corporations,” Mr Katter said.
“The majority of the money coming into the ALP comes from big corporations, and that is even more true of the Liberal Party and their lapdogs the National Party.
“But what you’re watching here is the muzzling of the people.
“We are nearly the only country on earth that has the two-party system – but over 10% of the population do not want to vote for the mainstream parties, they are disenfranchised.
“I think people like Dio Wang, John Madigan, Glenn Lazarus, Ricky Muir and Jacqui Lambie are outstanding examples of independents and small parties who make a very valuable contribution.
“They vote, in my opinion, infinitely more intelligently than those in the mainstream major parties who have destroyed our economy with their fanatical free-marketism.
“They represent the people, the rest represent the ALP and LNP corporations.
“But they depend upon that 10% of the vote to get elected and it will now be removed – so over the next 10 years they too will be removed.
“And we will just have the two major parties and their lapdogs left – the Greens and the Nick Xenophons,” Mr Katter said.
