Opinion – Easter, Jesus, Julian Assange and Truth

As thousands of people commute out of Sydney Australia on their epic annual migration north for the Easter weekend. Where there will be much rejoicing, much drinking of beer, barbecues and the rather gross ceremony of the exchanging of strange chocolate easter eggs that are absolutely terrible for your health. I thought it wise to reflect for a moment on what this weekend really  means.

Firstly, this is a weekend where we strangely celebrate, or more correctly remember, the public horrific execution of one of the greatest and most well known activists of the last 2100 years.

Yep, thats right, an activist, a speaker of truth, and with the coming of Anzac Day “lest we forget” or more aptly”I think we forgot” the person more correctly known as Yeshua Ben Yosef  (Jesus is a Greek title meaning Son of Zeus) stands as a powerful example to us all of what the Government really does to people that speak the Truth.

I wonder how much has really changed since those times when even today we have a person like Julian Assange a Journalist who has committed no crime, persecuted and ridiculed. We all sit at our computers and watch world governments, including our own pathetic Australian government, as they collude with other powers all over the world and condone and help orchestrate the public murder of a man who for all intensive purposes has done nothing other than simply speak the truth.

I think about all the  journalists, news reporters and humble podcasters like myself everywhere dedicated to exposing the truth about our draconian governments and what they really do in the name of God, Truth and Justice, the hypocrisy beggars belief.

My blood boils as our own Government spends the two days before Easter arguing on mainstream media about the immense cost of climate change policies from both major parties and how we cannot afford to change. And yet in their profound ignorance they overlook the blindingly obvious, there is no economy without an environment because even an economy requires an environment in which to exist.

Our own Government, responsible for the deaths of over a million Iraqis and numerous other disgraceful abominations as we play lap dog to multi national foreign governments and corporations, a government which in truth has no legitimacy. A Government that in essence behaves exactly as the romans did over 2000 years ago.

We see the yellow vests, the extinction rebellion and numerous other groups all around the world mobilising as we the people recognise that the fox is guarding the hen house. Governments are now so devoid of any true spiritual foundation that all they appear to think about is economics, money, money, money. Meanwhile the Garden of Eden is raped, abused and consumed at the behest of these so called leaders driven by greed and an insatiable desire for power. Further to this they are directly responsible for the senseless murder of millions of innocent people through their continued worship of war.

So Jesus died for us, he spoke the truth and so many were moved by his words that the powers at the time needed to make an example of him to continue their reign of tyranny and fear. The stories are always written by the victors.

So this is Easter, and what have we done? what has humanity actually achieved in over 2000 years? have we learnt anything?

Oh foolish mankind, you made a terrible mistake over 2000 years ago and those same mistakes continue today, so I guess you can eat the chocolate eggs and get drunk whilst those in power keep nailing good people to crosses everywhere, or you can just lay mute in fear and ignorance and turn your heads away, but then you too are complicit for there comes a time where even silence becomes betrayal.

Or ……………..

If you want a different outcome why not try doing something different, get active and become the change you wish to see in the world, be a spiritual warrior, walk the teachings, don’t get caught in all the division and  media fluff, and lets together create the word we want based on the highest moral and ethical principles as taught by true Christ Consciousness. At least when your breathing stops, and mark my words this will happen to everyone of you at some point, you will die knowing you tried, in my view it is far better to fight a righteous war than to do nothing.

Paul Robert Burton is a Minister of Religion, Bard and Activist Protector, he is the President of Our Land Our Water Our Future and a member of the Holy Ramakrishna Order. He is currently fighting draconian suppression laws enforced upon him to suppress truth. If you wish to support Paul and his work you can do so here.

The Law Of Conscience

To good people everywhere, It gets somewhat difficult to keep track but for those of you who are familiar with the relevant history of events and our following ongoing now nearly two year journey within the Australian judicial system. On the 1st of April 2019 I successfully completed my Application to Seek Special Leave To The High Court of Australia concerning the Equity Court Suppression Orders against myself as first defendant and Dr Andrew Katelaris as second defendant.

PRB v The Secretary, Dept of Family and Community Services

To explain as simply as possible, both myself and Dr Andrew Katelaris have been taken to court in two jurisdictions (Equity & Law) for identical charges that claim we allegedly published the name of a certain child, the image of the child, and published medical information about that same child on Facebook, within about a ten day period around 21 months ago. Meanwhile, millions of other people including multi-national media corporations, had already released, published and shared the same information, about the same child. Strangely, none of these people have been charged, only the two of us.

Further to this I made two attempts at a private prosecution against FACS caseworkers involved, but in both instances the matters were taken over by the Director of Public Prosecutions (DPP). The judicial process was then simply bypassed and the matters were in both instances closed without ever having the opportunity to even be heard. This in my view is contrary to the rule of law and founding democratic principles.

I also within that time, initiated two defamation cases (self represented) against two multi-national media corporations successfully removing two appalling defamatory media releases. These articles were published in my view, to help disguise and distract from the State Governments disgraceful actions that were witnessed by millions of people on social media.

To summarise the current Legal matters we have the following:

Secretary, Dept of FACS v Paul Robert Burton and Dr Andrew Katelaris (Supreme Court of Equity) Case No: 2017/214962         This matter is currently on hold pending special leave to the High Court of Australia and pending the later alleged criminal charges that are identical in every respect.

PRB v Secretary, Dept of FACS (High Court of Australia) Case No: S106 2019. This matter is currently in process awaiting a determination seeking leave to the High Court of Australia on 14 grounds.

DPP v PRB (Local Criminal Court Newcastle heading for the District Court Newcastle) Case No: 2017/00387583 

DPP v Andrew Katelaris (Local Criminal Court Newcastle heading for the District Court Newcastle) Case No: 2017/00388124

The above two matters are listed for further mention in the Local Court Newcastle on Friday 17th May 2019 and if not dismissed will eventually go to a Jury Trial in The District Court Newcastle, however some charges are determined by a Jury and some are heard Summarily.

PRB v The State of NSW (District court Newcastle) Case No: 2018/00234630.

This Civil Battery matter is listed for hearing in the Newcastle District Court from May 27th til May 29th. This will be a three day hearing and I have already subpoenaed some witnesses.

PRB v The DPP (District Court Newcastle) Case No:2018/00309486

This matter has been dismissed by the Courts and I am currently in the process of Appealing the matter to the Court of Appeal.

When you consider that all the cases above never ever needed to happen, when you further consider the now millions of dollars of taxpayer money that has been absolutely flaunted, and that the child who was forcibly removed has now since been restored to his loving family and is no longer even within jurisdiction. Also considering the now former Secretary of FACS himself will as of the 1st of July 2019 be the head of The Justice Department looking after the Dept of Public Prosecutions, The Crown Solicitors, The Police, The Court Registrars, Emergency Services and numerous other departments as well as being the head person overseeing the removal of children.

Interestingly when I was before the Court of Appeal and The Supreme Court I was told repeatedly that the Equity Matter and Criminal Matter against me were different because one was instituted by The Secretary of FACS and the other was the DPP,  and that these are completely seperate entities. But now through recent changes enacted by the Governor,  all our Court matters are overseen by the same entity.

In my view the suppression laws and the court matters against Andrew and I  have nothing to do with the protection of children. How could they ? The child has been restored and isn’t even within jurisdiction, these laws are undoubtedly to protect The State of NSW at the expense of it’s own people.

We are in strange times when to speak the Truth becomes a crime.

District Court Judgment 12th April

Love to all and my apologies for sharing legal updates online on a Sunday, but its the first time I have had an opportunity to write due to my new full-time no income government initiated independent legal work experience training crash course.

To good people everywhere and those in the public who are aware of my history and the current legal situation and court matters that now exist as a result of that history. Approximately 12 months ago along with my other court matters I filed a statement of claim for collateral abuse against the Office of The Director of Public Prosecutions (DPP) on the grounds that three of the ten criminal charges against me could never ever be sustained. Namely because the interim orders to which they relate could never be proved to be in force. Further to this I was appalled that the DPP would use the child abuse and sex crimes squad to charge me for ten offences that have nothing to do with either child abuse or sex crimes. My question was, if you wish to charge me why choose that department ? To take someone to court for charges, which cannot be sustained, and to also use a specific department that further implies things that are completely untrue, is most certainly in my view, vexatious. Also considering the charges mirror identical charges in another jurisdiction, and to charge someone after complying with suppression laws once they were known, further adds to this vexation. And lets not forget in the Supreme Court matter on the 8th of March that the DPP also withheld evidence essential to my defence for nearly a year.

In response, the significant independent legal organisation hired by the DPP filed a Notice of Motion to strike out my claim.

This matter was determined on the 12th of April when the Judgment was released and my collateral abuse claim was dismissed and costs awarded against me.

To share as simply as I can, and in my understanding as best I can, the defence raised four grounds and the matter was dismissed on one of those grounds only.

It is my understanding from His Honour’s Judgment, he has dismissed my statement of claim on the basis that if the Director of Public Prosecutions initiates proceedings that are considered vexatious, that this is not an improper purpose outside the scope of lawful proceedings. 

In the alternative in my view this can only mean one thing , that being vexatious is a proper process within the scope of the lawful proceedings of the DPP? 

I do not consider being vexatious is within the scope of lawful proceedings, I assert that being vexatious is unlawful and outside the scope of lawful proceedings, so for this reason at this time I intend to Appeal. I believe that the DPP has an obligation to the public to not use their position and authority in such a way as to vexatiously inflict unecessary suffering on innocent people and/or to use the judicial process to protect and/or hide the actions of other government departments that fail in their responsibilities to the public.

In respect of our system of open justice the full Judgment has been made available online here (link below) on caselaw for those who are interested.
