cultures of impunity

You have heard the phrase “a culture of impunity?”

Australian police have come under fire for their “culture of impunity:”

More than 100 police have been caught up in the scandal over the distribution of racist, homophobic and pornographic emails, described by Mr Overland as “offensive” and “shocking”.

Two officers received section 68 notices from Mr Overland, in which they were asked to explain why they should not be sacked.

One of the officers facing the sack, Sergeant Tony Vangorp, responded by resigning last Friday. He was found dead from a self-inflicted gunshot on Monday night at the Healesville police station, where he had gone to collect personal belongings.

The most offensive emails are believed to include a graphic image of an ethnic man being tortured and another featuring bestiality, police sources told AAP.

Hot on the heels of that, some police officers have been captured on video using excessive force.

Interestingly, their defense seems to be something about having to deal with the “culture of impunity” of all those people who show up in their community to drink and misbehave. Who on earth approved all those liquor licenses anyway, and what were they thinking!?

All this chaos, the NWO at work, the poison of NWO ideas corroding the social fabric. Mix up the people, send them all over the place. Put them under stress, economic stress, emotional stress. Encourage them in licentiousness. Let them provoke each other and send in our cops.

The “culture of impunity” surrounds us. We live inside it. Each group has reasons to justify their own “culture of impunity” because each group feels assailed by some other group or groups. Division reigns. Chaos reigns. Violence reigns. This has not happened by accident.

Trust has been destroyed on purpose, because people must be divided before they can be conquered.

^^^^^^^

Meanwhile, the Vatican continues to twist in the wind for overlooking their own “culture of impunity.” And this time, there’s no defense. No defense. Well, this is the defense:

The following is part of a statement from the Vatican Press Office to the New York Times regarding the child sexual abuse cases involving Fr. Lawrence Murphy, which a report says then-Milwaukee Archbishop Rembert Weakland communicated to now-Pope Benedict XVI in 1996:

“The tragic case of Father Lawrence Murphy, a priest of the Archdiocese of Milwaukee, involved particularly vulnerable victims who suffered terribly from what he did. By sexually abusing children who were hearing-impaired, Father Murphy (1) violated the law and, (2) more importantly, the sacred trust that his victims had placed in him.

Notice how the defense proceeds, focusing on that law violation…

“During the mid-1970s,

a long time ago…

some of Father Murphy’s victims reported his abuse to civil authorities,

some people said something to some other people, maybe some police officers, who have nothing to do with us…

who investigated him at that time;

and they looked into it…

however, according to news reports, that investigation was dropped.

and hey we’re just going by the news reports too, and yeah uh looks like the whole thing was dropped.

The Congregation for the Doctrine of the Faith was not informed of the matter until some twenty years later.

REGRETTABLY, our special office that handles this stuff knew nothing about it until twenty years later. REGRETTABLY, it was too late to do much about it then.

“It has been suggested that a relationship exists between the application of Crimen sollicitationis and the non-reporting of child abuse to civil authorities in this case.

1962 Vatican document on the manner of proceeding when a priest solicits sex from a penitent, ie: crimen sollicitationis, click to enlarge

“The Instruction specifically states that those involved in processing cases under these norms are bound by the Secret of the Holy Office. Violation of the secret resulted in automatic excommunication, the lifting of which was especially reserved to the Holy Father. In fact, this represents the highest degree of Vatican secrecy which is imposed for the most serious processes and situations.”

So um maybe some people are saying that this was covered up or dealt with internally in the church, you know, because there was a procedure for that, and this suggestion indicates that the church knew and covered up this priest abusing all those deaf boys in Milwaukee for two or three decades.

In fact, there is no such relationship.

That never happened. That is a scurrilous suggestion. We did not cover this up internally.

Indeed, contrary to some statements that have circulated in the press, neither Crimen nor the Code of Canon Law ever prohibited the reporting of child abuse to law enforcement authorities.”

Somebody should have told the police.

This is not our fault.

Here’s the story.

Shared secrets reveal much suffering in silence, Milwaukee Journal Sentinel, March 25, 2006

Thirteen-year-old Arthur Budzinski hid under his bed crying. Born to hearing parents who did not speak sign language, he could not tell them of the terror he faced back at St. John’s School for the Deaf in St. Francis. It was 1962. When the truth was told decades later, they all would weep….Sometimes it was during confession, and often it was in the dead of night.

How many deaf children Murphy molested remains unknown. He was at St. John’s for 24 years. The victims who have come forward, who said they saw many of their classmates being abused, think he molested more than 100 boys. Murphy admitted to molesting at least 30, according to Alisa Cohen-Stein, a clinical social worker in the Chicago area who has worked with several of Murphy’s victims. She said she was told of Murphy’s admission by an employee of the archdiocese.

The children were uniquely isolated. Note the abuse and bad advice of authorities.

Murphy, who was fluent in sign language, became a key link to the hearing world for the many deaf children who, like Budzinski, were unable to talk with their hearing parents….”When you had a deaf child, the public health nurse would say, ‘Send them to some school.’”

The church falls back on confidentiality.

The Milwaukee Archdiocese has acknowledged that Murphy abused boys at the school, which was at 3680 S. Kinnickinnic Ave. in St. Francis, but has provided few details. The residential school closed in 1983 for financial reasons.
The archdiocese denied requests for church records regarding Murphy’s offenses, citing victim confidentiality.

Pompous and patronizing to the end, the church knows what’s best. The church believes it’s best for these victims to pour their little hearts out. Digging up arcane facts that might make us look bad? Um no thanks. The church believes that’s really not for the best.

“We firmly believe that these individuals have suffered so desperately in their lives that it is far more appropriate to listen to them - hear their stories of pain, grief and suffering - than it is to dig through our records for arcane facts and data, which we believe must be held in confidence,” Kathleen Hohl, communications director for the Archdiocese of Milwaukee, wrote in her response to the newspaper.

Murphy did so much good, raising money, making people feel like a million bucks, schmoozing with his powerful connected friends to help the deaf community…

At the center of the building frenzy was Murphy, a gregarious Irishman, short in stature with a smile that could melt ice. Yearbook photos and newspaper clippings show him as a whirlwind of activity, accepting thousands of dollars for the school from civic groups, coaching basketball and giving speeches all over town about deafness and why people should contribute to St. John’s.

But it was Murphy’s ability to speak American Sign Language so gracefully and beautifully that sealed his closeness to the deaf community. Parents and students loved to see him sign the Sunday Mass, which was described by some as truly spiritual.

Murphy’s well-connected friends contributed basketballs and baseballs and supported his push to replace the old, castle-like buildings. He established an athletic program and an alumni association.

…By all accounts, Murphy was enthusiastic and patient with the children.

Murphy abused his power to molest the boys. He left them horribly confused.

The men’s stories are similar. Murphy would call them to his bedroom in the school, or visit them in their dorm beds late at night, masturbate them and leave. Sometimes he would go on to other boys. Often he would say nothing. Sometimes when the boys saw him molesting other boys in the dorm room, they would cover their heads with their blankets, hug themselves tightly and weep. At times, he would take their confession in a second floor walk-in closet in the boy’s dorm and molest them.

“Murphy was so powerful and it was so hard,” said Geier who was molested when he was in seventh grade and said he saw more than a dozen other boys molested. “You couldn’t get out. It was like a prison. I felt so confused. Here I had Father Murphy touching me. I would be like, ‘God, what’s right?’ “

Geier said the boys received no sex education and had no idea what was happening to them. Some, he said, believed it must be all right because it was being done by a priest.

And this is what happens:

Like other victims, Joe Daniels, 58, of Union Grove was not believed when he tried to quietly tell family members and other adults about the molestations when he was in his 20s. “It was an awful thing,” Daniels said. “I felt anger and shame.”

…”One person actually said: ‘I would have to rebuild myself if I started talking about this. I would fall apart because all of the threads are so tangled.’ “

^^^^^^^

Here’s the “culture of impunity.” Notice that somebody did, in fact, tell the police. And that accomplished nothing.

Staring abuse straight in the face, Milwaukee Journal Sentinel, March 26, 2006

Murphy’s dark side might never have surfaced if not for Bolger, Budzinski and Gary Smith, who began having flashbacks in their 20s about the sexual abuse and started sharing their experiences with each other. In 1974, they decided it was time to tell their secret. They wanted to save other deaf boys from being molested by Murphy.

One year earlier, a deaf boy went to the St. Francis Police Department to report that Murphy molested him, records show. The case was dropped after Murphy told police the boy was mentally retarded, according to a deaf teacher who was at the school at the time.

How convenient is that? The ACCUSED tells the police the boy is retarded, and the police drop the case! Hey, do you suppose it might have something to do with all the powerful friends and all those nice things Murphy did all the time raising money for the deaf community, that encouraged the police to drop the case? No other interviews with other boys, other witnesses? Well anyway how could they talk to the boys? Murphy has to translate everything?!?

Now adults, the men go to the district attorney’s office and the police to file statements.

Murphy denied the allegations, and the police investigation was dropped. No criminal charges were issued because the men were adults and the crimes were beyond the statute of limitations.

So to be clear, in 1973 a BOY reported abuse to police. The next year men in their 20s reported their abuse while boys, to police. Would that not justify re-opening the investigation, at the very least? What kind of police work is going on here?

Another had reported the abuse to priests, which also didn’t accomplish anything.

He said he reported the abuse to three priests on three separate occasions through the years. Two indicated they did not believe him, and the other told him to forget about it.

Some other people, hearing people, get involved. They finally get 15-20 affidavits and secure a meeting with the archbishop for May 9, 1974.

“There were at least a dozen people in the room. Some were other staff from St. John’s.

…Conway said he was stunned when the archbishop began to explain that they had been aware of the problem for years.

“Then they proceeded to tell us that they understood our desire to have Father Murphy removed from the school, but they felt that Murphy was so important to the school, its livelihood and history that they did not want to remove him,” he said. “Instead they said they would remove him from having any contact with the children. I was frankly shocked.”

After faculty members and others described the good things Murphy had done for the deaf community, Conway, who served as an interpreter, said he, Quant and the victims who attended walked out of the meeting in disgust.

And there, I suppose you have it. The school’s livelihood and history, the church’s livelihood and history, Murphy’s livelihood and history, outweigh the livelihood and history of all those boys who had their bodies raped and their minds fragmented and their souls crushed under the guilt and shame of Murphy’s abuse.


The church JUSTIFIED sacrificing all these boys, deaf boys, trapped boys, powerless boys, to keep Murphy happy. Because Murphy brought home the bacon. And the police helped the church, because the culture of impunity for the powerful extends right through to various circles of authority, including the police of course. All it takes is for the order to come down from on high. You do what you’re told or you lose your job, right? We all know this. It is the bane of working people everywhere, to play their little part in the machine, like it or not.


But the orders always come from on high. That’s the point. Otherwise the cover ups could never happen.

the analog cover for X Wars

The Australian government is reportedly giving a lot of money to schools run by the Exclusive Brethren, a religious sect, with a few thousand pupils in the whole country.

Although the Brethren have been accused of ‘breaking up families’, the group also received grants under the Schools Pride program. All up, the 2400 children in Brethren schools will each receive the equivalent of AU$26,127 in recurrent funding and AU$11,200 in stimulus funding.

Angelo Gavrielatos, the Australian Education Union federal president, said the sums were ‘outrageous’. ‘How can the Government justify handing tens of millions of dollars to an organisation it believes is a cult while public schools which educate the vast majority of our children are struggling for funds?’ Mr Gavrielatos said.

According to The Australian, the Exclusive Brethren is a ‘fundamentalist Christian sect that lives by the doctrine of separation from mainstream society. Brethren schools must teach the normal curriculum, although reports say some novels are banned and chapters on sex and reproduction are excised from science textbooks’. Members of the group do not vote, do not use technology including television, radios and movies and are not allowed to eat in public restaurants.

Aangirfan recently pointed out that Aleister Crowley’s parents were both Exclusive Brethren.

As a child, the only book Crowley was allowed to read was the Bible. From the age of eight he was sent to strict Evangelical boarding schools. At his second school he was bullied and beaten by ‘a sexually ambiguous sadomasochist’ headmaster. When Aleister was 11, his father died. Aleister came to hate the Brethren.

So after his education at many schools, Crowley went on to became a famous satanist linked to pedophilia, human sacrifice, spies, drugs, etc. After rejecting the Brethren “cult,” Crowley went on to make his own “cult.”

According to Crowley, the God told him that a new Aeon for mankind had begun, and that Crowley would serve as its prophet. “Believing himself to be the messiah of a new epoch, Crowley swore that he would perform depraved acts and learn to love them.” Christianity was dead, he declared. “His new religion had one all-powerful doctrine: ‘Do what thou wilt shall be the whole of the law.’”

An author, Michael Bachelard, published a book in 2008: Behind the Exclusive Brethren.

Out of nowhere in 2004, an obscure religious sect burst onto the political stage in Australia. Almost unheard of until then, the Exclusive Brethren was suddenly spending up big in election advertising in support of conservative political parties. But its members were shy to the point of paranoia about who they were — preferring, as they said, to ‘fly under the radar’. Brethren members assiduously lobbied politicians, but did not vote. And they were very close to the-then prime minister John Howard.

What exactly was their interest in politics? Why did their activism suddenly blossom almost simultaneously across the world, from Canada and the United States to Sweden and Australia? And how did a small, fringe group, whose values are utterly detached from those of most Australians, infiltrate the highest office in the land?

Bachelard endured considerable pressure for looking into this cult:

Bachelard’s research showed the Exclusive Brethren make plentiful use of large funds available for silencing criticism through the law courts. He says that, while reporting on the Exclusive Brethren, he has had a number of legal letters threatening actions for trespass, apprehended violence orders, complaints to the Australian Press Council and defamation.

In August, the Brisbane Times reported that the Australian government created a giant loophole for the Exclusive Brethren to exploit:

The Government, under its Building the Education Revolution (BER) funding, this year granted the Exclusive Brethren’s Brisbane campus, Agnew School, $1.6 million to build a library. The school, at Wakerley in Brisbane’s east, with 118 students in years three to 12, qualified for the funding because it spread its student numbers over six campuses….

Dr Kaye said federal Education Minister Julia Gillard had allowed the school to legally exploit the loophole and gold plate one of its campuses. Receiving $1.6 million for a library based on students who are enrolled at campuses that are many hours drive away makes a mockery of the Building the Education Revolution process, he said. Many students for whom this money was allocated will never see the library that is supposed to serve them. He said Ms Gillard was washing her hands of the issue by hiding behind funding formulas….A spokeswoman for Ms Gillard said: For the purpose of funding under the BER, schools with multiple campuses are treated as a single school.

Today The Australian reports that the funding loopholes costs Australian taxpayers $3.5 billion(???) a year and must be urgently reviewed. (I don’t know if that’s a typo but it does say “billion.” Other sources say million.)

The secretive but financially savvy sect has taken advantage of a “no-disadvantage” clause put in the funding system by the Howard government, of which the Brethren was a strong supporter. Federal education authorities warned the funding loophole was giving the Brethren a windfall, according to a 2006 report seen by The Australian, but nothing was done about it….The no-disadvantage clause means that despite the wealth of the Brethren schools’ communities, their funding level is preserved at that awarded to the original campus at Meadowbank in Sydney. Australian Education Union federal president Angelo Gavrielatos said the funding guarantee was costing taxpayers $3.5 billion a year and must be urgently reviewed.

The response?

“Brethren schools do not receive a cent more than they are entitled to; there has never been a special funding arrangement for Brethren schools.”

Aha, they did not receive a cent more than they were entitled to (wink wink wink!!!). You got a problem with that?

So what is this all about? Why is the Australian government catering to this group? I think it ties into X Wars and end time scenarios. (X Wars being ways of making things look like we are at the mercy of either God or Mother Nature and have no control over events.) If you want people to think that God is going to smite the world and bring about Armageddon, in a “clash of civilizations” for instance, you might want to empower whack-job fundamentalists to oppose your trusty islamofascist terrorists on the payroll, hmm? A little straight-forward Hegelian mind-fuckery, that’s all.

From a 2007 analysis of nuclear war risks:

The psychological mindsets, well being and religious beliefs of the nine sets of nuclear war decision makers is a very relevant factor in whether or not nuclear weapons are used. One example is the Fundamentalist Christian “End Times” beliefs of President George Bush. In this belief system nuclear war is regarded as a fulfilment of a much-desired Biblical prediction of God. End Timers believe God wants a final battle between ‘good and evil’ and they are the chosen people who will decide who is “good” and who is “evil”. The true believer is good and will be raptured to heaven and the unbelievers (those who do not believe in Fundamentalist Christian gospels) are evil and will be condemned by the Christian God to a perpetual hell. The ‘End Timers’ who have a strong influence on Bush, and are a very dedicated, wealthy and powerful minority in the US . They will support anything that leads toward a nuclear Armageddon and the fulfilment of Biblical prophesy as they interpret it. That’s one reason why the ‘Exclusive Brethren’s sect has given large donations to conservative political parties in different countries around the world.

Under its previous holder Javier Solana, the post of top EU diplomat focused on smoothing relations and boosting Europe’s influence in such places as the Middle East, Iran, and the Balkans. But the job has greater powers under the new Lisbon Treaty of reforms, even though the EU’s 27 nations remain well in charge over foreign and defense policy, with Ashton set to be their mouthpiece. Despite the pressure, Ashton appeared relaxed throughout, confidently responding to questions mainly focused on institutional concerns and how the former EU trade commissioner saw the future of EU foreign policy. She gave answers that demonstrated an understanding of the issues, but would not be drawn into diplomatic minefields like her stance on sanctions against Iran and was cautious on Middle East policy. More broadly she urged Europe to play a greater role on the world stage. “I am convinced there is a clear call, inside the EU and around the world, for greater European engagement—to promote peace, protect the vulnerable, fight poverty ,and address the many problems of our time,” she said. “We have to answer this call.”

14. China very very very unhappy with US weapons sales to Taiwan — in diplomatic language this is a full-blown fit

BEIJING, Jan. 11 (Xinhua) — The U.S. Defense Department announced on January 6 the approval of a plan of Lockheed Martin Corp. to sell Patriot III missiles to Taiwan. Although it was a step to implement the huge-scale arms sales package announced by the George W. Bush administration in October 2008, such a move only about one month after U.S. President Barack Obama’s visit to China tarnished the China-U.S. ties….the U.S. arms sales to Taiwan fully justified any suspicion about the United States’ sincerity to take concrete actions to “respect each other’s core interests.”

Undoubtedly, the U.S. arms sales to Taiwan seriously violated the principles established in the three Sino-U.S. joint communiques and the spirit of the Sino-U.S. Joint Statement, breached the U.S. promise to respect the core interests of China and disobeyed the mainstream wish shared by the people across the Straits.  This move clearly showed the dual character of the United States in dealing with the major issues related to China’s core interests, especially at the moment that the cross-Straits relations have embarked on a path of peaceful development.

Profound lessons should be drawn from history. All previous U.S. arms sales to Taiwan have caused great damage to the Sino-U.S. relations and blocked their stable and smooth development.  This time is no exception, since the arms sales to Taiwan are rootless and absolutely harmful, whether from the perspectives of legal, moral and justice principles, or from the perspectives of joint interests of the two countries and the long-term development of their relations.

…Earlier, dismissing Australia’s suggestions that Indian reaction on the issue of attacks was “hysterical”, External Affairs Minister S.M.

Subject: “Your Global Warming Hoax Agenda” violates my Invoking of the 2nd Law where all are accountable.

http://www.harold-holt.net/2ndLaw.htm

I have Invoked the 2nd Law of the Universe here in Australia to have all accountable for illegal technology on Australian soil and here on Planet Earth and for violating the Laws of Creation. As shown in my CT-Scan, illegal technology is being used on Planet Earth and this illegal technology had been placed in me against my freewill and consent, when I was under the legal adult age of consent (then 21 years old) during the period when I was a Navy Clearance Diver involved in several clandestine acts, as stated in my Affidavit of 11/11/99.

As the Australian Constitution is illegal and invalid shows how no-one has ever obtained the true consent of we the Sovereign People of Australia to have Joint Military Facility’s along with it’s “alien technology” on Australian soil such as Pine Gap or to have Satanic structures such as the Australian Parliament House built on Australian soil (see photos).

As “they” were fully aware of my Invoking as shown at: Australian PM Informed Website Under Second Law is why they are accountable for the action they all chose, which I will now explain.

You’re unable to charge any of “them” on the evil side for “their” criminal acts, and it’s the same for the village idiot who “they” stole 2 elections for won’t be charged for 9-11 or war crimes in Iraq, and the same applies for the atrocities that’s been occurring for the last 60 years in the Middle East. As the Middle East also shows, this killing and violence has been going on long before Crucifixion and the Babylonian days as shown in the Bible, and “their” script we are seeing today was laid out 4000 years ago, before the first Babylon was constructed.

What all the stage players have failed to comprehend is that “their” Annointed One, The Controller, The Illuminated One, The Devil along with his many other names was always accountable for his actions from “Day One” and this is why he laid out this evil game that we see today to make everyone else just as accountable as he is and especially the Dark One’s who were attracted later to the game, which was changed to include them. ( Israel, U.S and including the Jesuits and the Vatican belong to this Dark group )

His mocking of “all of them” is shown in his handy work of unfinished structures around the world and the actors themselves are too silly to see this mocking as shown by the completed E.U Parliament being a copy of the “unfinished structure” of Babylon, which was destroyed as stated in the Bible. Another great example is the Australian Parliament House with the capstone in place without the all seeing eye, further showing this is another incomplete structure. He has also deliberately put flaws in his handy work that allows “them” to fail as shown by “their” failure to obtain the true consent (Allowance) of the Aboriginals and of the Sovereign People of Australia to participate in this evil game by the Australian Constitution being illegal and invalid.

Also, he allowed “their” own actions to put my Invoking of the 2nd Law of the Universe into play when they granted my demand to withdraw my consent and be discharged from the Navy showing this to be the biggest example of how he has deceived “them” by “his knowing” that my Invoking of the 2nd Law of the Universe would have “them all” as accountable as he is, which shows he has mocked “them all” from “Day One”.

The Actors on the world stage, might be able to scoff at Domestic and International Law “they” created but “they” are accountable to the Creators Laws through my Invoking of the 2nd Law and it’s these Laws that will take “their” accountability out to infinity for standing in defiance to the Creators Laws and his Creation.

The Laws of the Universe are Immutable and cannot be changed or distorted. They work without question
as to whom is applying them and dire consequences for those who interfere with them.

As I have Invoked the 2nd Law of the Universe here in Australia, I give No Allowance to anyone or anything in the flow of Creation to violate my Invoking as it’s through my Invoking of the 2nd Law of the Universe here in Australia all are accountable for illegal technology on Australian soil and here on Planet Earth and for violating the Laws of Creation. As shown in my CT-Scan, illegal technology is being used on Planet Earth and this illegal technology had been placed in me against my freewill and consent, when I was under the legal adult age of consent (then 21 years old) during the period when I was a Navy Clearance Diver involved in several clandestine acts, as stated in my Affidavit of 11/11/99.

And also as the Australian Constitution is illegal and invalid shows how no-one has ever obtained the true consent of we the Sovereign People of Australia to have Joint Military Facility’s along with it’s “alien technology” on Australian soil such as Pine Gap or to have Satanic structures such as the Australian Parliament House built on Australian soil (see photos).

It should be remembered “they” used me for “their” Evil Agenda when I was a minor and I withdrew my consent when I was 21 years old which was then the adult age, by demanding to be discharged from the Navy, where I was given an Honourable Discharge in 14 days and it’s this action, which put my Invoking of the 2nd Law of the Universe into play and has taken all these years to for me to comprehend and understand the position I had taken and stand today. - Also see my writings above Letter to John Howard the then Australian Prime Minister.

It’s of no concern to me whether people accept or believe what I am saying as I only have to satisfy my own knowing but the facts speak for themselves, view my CT-Scan and see the objects in my throat and question how evil is this to control ones life and which is in violation to the Laws of Creation and for those who ignore this evil act against me, should ask themselves in what GOD do they believe in?

Yes, “they” thought they could control and do what they liked in the Satanic world they created 4000 years ago and not be accountable but now “they” are accountable through my Invoking for what has been done to me when I was underage and for all the violations that has occurred here in Australia and these violations can never be undone, “they” are accountable and “they” know it.

May I add, I don’t care what people want or say must happen as I give No Allowance through my Invoking, there will be no New World Order, Anti-Christ or Mark of the Beast nor will the Australian Parliament house with it Satanic symbols be the New World Order head quarters as these are in violation to my Invoking.

This is why this evil game on Earth is slowing down dramatically and it will soon be at a stop and then all on Earth will see the illusion that was created including all the Emporers are wearing no clothes as “they” are accountable and have no authority to be here or to play this evil game here on Earth when it is not even “their” Planet. In other words, “their” game is over, “them” and their Satanic God are accountable now to our Highest Authority, our Creator through my Invoking of the 2nd Law of the Universe here in Australia and where now their mocking has come to an end.

The Laws of the Universe are what they are and the harold-holt.net website is what it is
