Our Politicians Do Not Swear Allegiance To Us

13 Apr

Gillard2

Here’s an interesting factoid that I never thought to check, until this morning.

Ever wondered why it is that, on the occasion that new MP’s, senators, cabinet ministers, and/or Prime Ministers are “sworn in”, your TV may show you moving images of the ceremony, but never the sound-in-full?

From the Australian Constitution Part IV, section 42:

Oath or affirmation of allegiance

Every senator and every member of the House of Representatives shall before taking his seat make and subscribe before the Governor‑General, or some person authorised by him, an oath or affirmation of allegiance in the form set forth in the schedule to this Constitution.

And what does that schedule to the Constitution require?

OATH

I, A.B. , do swear that I will be faithful and bear true allegiance to Her Majesty Queen Victoria, Her heirs and successors according to law.
SO HELP ME GOD!

AFFIRMATION

I, A.B. , do solemnly and sincerely affirm and declare that I will be faithful and bear true allegiance to Her Majesty Queen Victoria, Her heirs and successors according to law.

(NOTE: The name of the King or Queen of the United Kingdom of Great Britain and Ireland for the time being is to be substituted from time to time.)

Just sayin’ ….

    Hi Again BI. And Oh dear.

    It appears you have just ventured into the “Commonwealth of Australia” rabbit hole that i have been wandering around in this last year.

    Are the appointment of State Governors and the Governor General made by assent of the “Queen of Australia”?

    Who or what is the Queen of Australia. Does the 1901 Constitution allow for this change of Sovereign without the consent of “we the people”? If our consent is not required and has never been required are we truly considered born as chattel?

    Or do we just need to recognise our individual sovereignty and stand within it? Stating clearly that no man or fictional entity has a claim over us.

    OK you can see I don’t have any answers and am currently lost within this labyrinth.

    Enjoy the quest should you choose to continue. I’m hoping you do.

    Cheers Phil

      Does the 1901 Constitution have any validity given that it was imposed on us by the British as a means of self governing for a Colony, and was voted on only by the Heads of the States of the day on “our” behalf? Given that our independence as a Nation was first recognized with our acceptance into the League of Nations, how can this Constitution that predated that event have any validity? The rabbit-hole you refer to is a veritable warren, with many twists and turns, but at the bottom is an illegitimate government and system of government presiding over a fraud of monumental proportions. They don’t swear an oath to us because they don’t represent us, and while they have the use of the titles of Government to alter their names with, they are above the laws they use to govern and control us. This has never been so obvious as it has become these last two years.

    The Australian Constitution is an Act of the UK parliament.
    8. After the passing of this Act the Colonial Boundaries Act, 1895, shall not apply to any colony which becomes a State of the Commonwealth; but the Commonwealth shall be taken to be a self-governing colony for the purposes of that Act.
    The Shedule, Statute of Westminster,1931. 8. Nothing in this Act shall be deemed to confer any power to repeal or alter the Constitution or the Constitution Act of the Commonwealth of Australia or the Constitution Act of the Dominion of New Zealand otherwise than in accordance with the law existing before the commencement of this Act.
    Can colonies make treaties with a foreign power?
    What validity has The Australia Act 1986.?

    http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/United_Kingdom_of_Great_Britain_and_Ireland
    The United Kingdom of Great Britain and Ireland was the formal name of the United Kingdom between 1801 and 1927. In 1922, the majority of Ireland seceded to form the Irish Free State. The Royal and Parliamentary Titles Act 1927 amended the name of the Parliament of the United Kingdom to reflect the change in the country’s boundaries, and the Act is conventionally considered to mark the point when the name of the state changed as well.
    The United Kingdom of Great Britain and Ireland came into being on 1 January 1801 under the terms of the Acts of Union 1800, by which the formerly separate kingdoms of Great Britain and Ireland were united. The Kingdom of Great Britain had itself been formed in 1707 by the union of the formerly separate kingdoms of England and Scotland.
    In 1919, Irish MPs refused to recognise the Parliament of the United Kingdom and formed a unilaterally independent Irish parliament, Dáil Éireann, with an executive under the President of Dáil Éireann, Eamon de Valera. A War of Independence was fought between 1919 and 1921. Finally in December 1922, twenty-six of Ireland’s counties exited from the United Kingdom of Great Britain and Ireland and formed an independent Irish Free State. The southern part of Ireland that seceded from the union is today the Republic of Ireland. It covers the same territory as the Free State, but adopted a new constitution in 1937.
    Six counties of Ireland, called Northern Ireland, remained a part of the continuing United Kingdom, which was renamed the United Kingdom of Great Britain and Northern Ireland in 1927, in accordance with the Royal and Parliamentary Titles Act 1927. The present-day United Kingdom retains the same constitutional and parliamentary systems but covering only a portion of the previous territory.
    The Cof A Constitution Act 1900 says “…..have agreed to unite in one indissoluble Federal Commonwealth under the Crown of the United Kingdom and Ireland, and under the Constitution hereby established.” But the Queen/King has since 1927 been the Crown of the United Kingdom of Great Britain and Northern Ireland.”
    Should the Uk parliament have altered the Cof A Constitution Act to recognise the change or is our Constitution obsolete?
    If Australia is to become a republic how will Malcolm Turnbull arrange Australias’ secession from the Commonwealth?

    We lost all our Constitutional Rights with the passing of the fraudulent & Illegal “1986 Australia Act”.
    All States & Territories in Australia are registered as Corporations, this removes the legal requirement for State & Territory “Representatives” (Remember, they are or Representatives, not our “Leaders”) to swear allegiance to the Crown
    this may help to explain some of it

      Though it may be the Queens Coronation is an act of subterfuge.

      From the 13th Century, a third symbol being a rod, often adorned with the symbol of the dove symbolizing fealty to the Roman Cult and absolutely authority was added during the coronation ceremony of Edward I of England.

      Queen Elizabeth 2 sat in Edward 1sts chair at her coronation

      X. The Investiture per annulum, et per sceptrum et baculum
      Then the Keeper of the Jewel House shall deliver to the Archbishop the Queen’s Ring, wherein is set a sapphire and upon it a ruby cross: the Archbishop shall put it on the fourth finger of her Majesty’s right hand, and say:
      Receive the Ring of kingly dignity,
      and the seal of Catholic Faith:
      and as you are this day
      consecrated to be our Head and Prince,
      so may you continue stedfastly
      as the Defender of Christ’s Religion;
      that being rich in faith
      and blessed in all good works,
      you may reign with him who is the King of Kings,
      to whom be the glory for ever and ever. Amen.
      Then shall the Dean of Westminster bring the Sceptre with the Cross and the Rod with the Dove to the Archbishop.

    Just to add to the confusing mess —

    A definition of Crown –

    A corporate entity and its subsidiaries formed during the 19th Century that usurped the monarch and commonwealth public acts by assuming the role of government and administration, including claiming ownership of previous public property and rights.

    http://openeye.99k.org/The%20Crown.html

    WHO OR WHAT CONSTITUTES THE CROWN

    The modern world of so-called Western Civilization began at the end of the 17th century with the blossoming of the British Empire. The underpinnings of that empire actually began several hundred years earlier with the establishment of the City of London, which is now an 800-year old corporation that controls finance and philosophy for an entity called the Crown. This entity is the creator and controller of the Bank of England and the US Federal Reserve. They also control the World Bank, the IMF and associated cartels. The crown identity is kept most secret. The Crown/Bank of England assumed control of the United States during the Roosevelt administration (1901-1909) when its agent J.P. Morgan took over 25% of American business. The Queen of England pays taxes and has to seek permission for entry into The Crown City of London.

    Who or what is the Queen of Australia is entirely a matter for the people of Australia.

    The Australian Constitution is clear about amending, as requires any such amendment to be passed in accordance with s. 128

    The Queen appears consistent that whatever the issue raised, when decided by the Australian people voting in accordance with s. 128, it is the purpose of the Australian people which dominates.

    Should the High Court considering an issue presented find exists reasonable grounds to believe there was a conflict of purpose between the purpose of the Australian voters, and, the purpose of the Parliament, with any amendment, who wins ?

    After Libya, the usurers of the temple are pointing to Mali, watching Algeria….

    Mali, Hagel & the Rothschilds

    Yesterday, as if to send a message to the US Senate Armed Services Committee, Israel bombed a convoy on the Syria/Lebanon border. It seems to have worked. This morning, chicken hawks on that committee with names like McCain and Inhofe are busy grilling Obama Defense Secretary Nominee Sen. Chuck Hagel (R-NE) as to his unflagging allegiance to mother Israel and the military-industrial complex alike.
    Meanwhile, the Rothschild-led City of London Illuminati banksters who run the dog and pony show otherwise known as Israel, seek to grab more global resources – this time in the north African country of Mali…..”

    Paul: “The Queen appears consistent that whatever the issue raised, when decided by the Australian people voting in accordance with s. 128, it is the purpose of the Australian people which dominates.”

    That may be the case but if you value your word and do your best to make the thoughts in your head largely match the words coming out of your mouth, how can you live with swearing your loyalty to the Queen of another country? I guess if the minister believes we are just another colony of UK then it’s all good.

    But you would think it would be on their to-do list of something to sort out.

    I swear that I will be faithful to the Queen?

    What the F!@$@ is that supposed to mean?

    “I swear I will do my best to help Australia stand on its own two feet”

    Swearing to the Queen is not an international focus in my opinion, just more submission. Submit to the Media, Submit to the Queen, Submit to opinion polls, Submit to the party line. Be a good boy.

      Australian Taxation Office (ATO)
      Cannot Furnish Legal Files for its Own Creation!
      Q: Is the ATO operating legally?
      A: Going by the Australian Constitution and the following letter from the ATO,
      the answer is “No!”
      Here is an Affidavit by Anthony Wallace, an officer within the ATO, Australia.
      IN THE ADMINISTRATIVE
      APPEALS TRIBUNAL
      Tribunal Reference: N1999/1483
      In the Matter of
      Douglas Cameron
      Applicant
      AND
      COMMISSIONER OF TAXATION
      Respondent
      AFFIDAVIT
      On 25 February 2000, I, AnthonyWallace of 2 Constitution Avenue, Canberra, Commonwealth
      public servant, say on oath:
      1. I am an officer of the Australian Taxation Office (hereafter “ATO”) holding the position of
      Executive Level 1 in the Legal Policy and Coordination section.
      2. My duties in the Legal Policy and Coordination section are primarily concerned with responding
      to applications under the Freedom of Information Act 1982 (Cth.).
      3. By virtue of my duties as an officer of the ATO, I prepared the reply to Mr Douglas Cameron’s
      letter of 18 February 1999.
      4. In order to prepare the reply to Mr Cameron’s letter of 18 February 1999, I searched for and
      caused searches to be undertaken for the documents setting up the Australian Taxation Office.
      5. I searched for and caused searches to be undertaken for the said documents during the months
      of March and April 1999. I could not identify any other possible or likely repositories for the
      documents.
      The Searches Undertaken
      6. I searched the ATO’s computerised file marking system (TORT) for files referring to the creation
      of the ATO but I was unable to identify any relevant files.
      7. I conducted an extensive search of the ATO’s National Office library. I was assisted in this task
      by Karen Moore who was one of the ATO’s librarians.
      Page 2
      8. I contacted Denis Gray of the Records Management section of the ATO and asked him if he
      was aware of any files that related to the establishment of the ATO. Denis told me that he had no
      knowledge of any such files and that he was unable to identify any such files when he searched
      the section’s manual card index.
      9. I contacted Paul Southwell whom I understood at that time to be the acting Director of Policy in
      the Parliamentary Business Unit within the ATO. Paul was unaware of any executive instrument
      that set up the ATO.
      10. I contacted Jane Holden who was the Authorisations and Delegations Officer in the Office of
      the Chief Tax Counsel within the ATO. Jane was not aware of any documents creating the ATO.
      11. I contacted the secretary of the Commissioner of Taxation and asked if she had knowledge of
      any administrative file that might contain documents setting up the ATO. The secretary informed
      me that she did not have knowledge of any administrative files that contained documents setting
      up the ATO.
      12. I spoke to Jody Kisbee who was the Executive Assistant to Robyn Orr, the Acting Assistant
      Commissioner of People and Structures in the ATO. I asked Jody if she knew of any files that
      contained documents setting up the ATO. Jody replied that she did not know of any such files.
      13. I contacted Madeline Campbell of the Australian Government Solicitor. Madeline referred me to
      Dianne Callahan who was an officer in the Governor-General’s Office dealing with requests under
      the Freedom of Information Act 1982 (Cth.)
      14. I contacted Dianne Callahan. Dianne was unaware of any documents setting up the ATO and
      referred me to Frank Leveritt of the Federal Executive Council.
      15. I contacted Frank Leveritt who referred me to Kate Banks of the Federal Executive Council. I
      contacted Kate Banks who undertook to search for documents setting up the ATO and then to
      inform me of the results of her searches. Kate later telephoned me and said that she was unable to
      find any documents setting up the ATO but referred me to the National Archives.
      16. I spoke to Caroline Connor of the National Archives. Caroline later telephoned me and said
      that she had searched for documents setting up the ATO but had been unable to find any.

      What The FUQ? – Frequently Unanswered Questions of the “Australian Government

      Political parties are private corporations which form a government under our present Constitution –is that legal – what if Coles or Woolworths formed a party?
      If the Commonwealth of Australia is registered in the U.S. as a corporate entity, does that mean that those registered by the Commonwealth of Australia inc. by means of an Australian birth certificate are also U.S. corporate citizens? The US and the Commonwealth of Australia inc. are both chapter 11 bankrupt corporations owned ultimately by the Crowned Bank.

      Is this why Julian Assange can be FORCED to face a kangaroo court in the US but no other country seems to have the same power?

    There is no doubt we have only the illusion of democracy.If we do not have control of our money creation, then bankers control our Govts and most of our large corporations. Baron MA Rothschild,” Give me control of a nation currency and I care not who makes the laws.”

    The best doco on money ever.’ The Secret of Oz’ by Bill Still.
    http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=swkq2E8mswI Discover the hidden meaning behind ” The Wonderful Wizard of Oz” In the book Dorothy has silver slippers and not the ruby ones worn by Judy Garland in the movie.Each of these characters represented sectors within our society.The wicked witches of the East and West represented JD Rockefeller and JP Morgan ,the two major banking powers of that time.As our heros were forced to walk upon the yellow brick road of gold slavery,they did not realise that Dorothy had the secret of their freedom at Dorothy’s feet.

    In 1873 , known as the crime of ’73, the elites in the USA removed all the silver money from their economy and replaced it with their gold.By the 1890’s their money supply was reduced by 80%.Since the elites owned most of the gold,they assumed most of the wealth.

    Today they are stealing from us by “quantative easing” ie money printing and the scam of derivatives.The theft ensues,yet most of our population remain blissfully ignorant.

      Stumbled across a link last night that allows you to make your own Hitler downfall video, so made one about this allegiance to the Queen thing:

      “A taxpayer finally makes it into parliament.”

      Theres a link in the description of the video where you can make your own. Obviously theres a bit too many Hitler downfall videos on youtube, but it was fun to make nevertheless.
