Here are some key points to consider:
- Excess Mortality Rates In these countries, excess deaths, which are deaths beyond what would be expected based on historical data, have been on the rise. Figures show a substantial increase, ranging from 5% to 20% in the years 2021, 2022, and even continuing into 2023.
- Lack of Investigation Despite these alarming statistics, there has been a surprising lack of investigation into the underlying causes of these excess non-COVID deaths. Our political leaders, medical professionals, and even the media have not given this issue the attention it deserves, raising questions about their responsibilities in addressing unexpected changes in mortality rates.
- Call for Action It's time for a comprehensive investigation into the factors contributing to excess non-COVID deaths. Understanding the root causes and developing effective strategies to mitigate this trend should be a top priority.

- The rules of war do not restrict a military's response to any attack as long as it is directed at the military of the attacking force.
- The right to self defence allows a disproportionate response, an overwhelming response, as long as it is directed at the opposing military and military targets
- The principle of proportionality requires that any attack against a military target must be evaluated taking into account the likelihood of collateral damage on civilians.
- An attack on a hospital operating as a hospital with possibly hundreds of civilians and several enemy militants and arms would not pass this principle.
- At the same time, an attack on a mosque with multiple enemy combatants with just a few civilians would be acceptable, despite the collateral harm to civilians.
- The judgement is made by the military.

In one of my recent discussions on X (Twitter), with Captain Chaos, I commented that the GAP could be addressed in ways that did not require changing the Constitution. I then sent a link to my post Are we perpetuating the GAP? This then led to a range of comments. At this point, I thought I could address this better in a post. So this post provides a bit more clarification on my post as well as addressing Captain Chaos' points.
So here is a recap of the discussion so far; -
Several points - the $30 billion is not a valid amount for argument's sake, that is known.— Captain Chaos (@Captain_Chaos_X) October 11, 2023
As a city based observer, is relatable to 'bureaucracies' and those without knowledge & experience doing what they think is needed as opposed to knowing what is needed.
You overlook the why

Which did suspend the racial discrimination act.— Captain Chaos (@Captain_Chaos_X) October 11, 2023
Since that time the insinuation that there is an epidemic of abuse (child) has been left unsubstantiated
In fact, in recent months the unsubstantiated allegation was repeated by both Jacinta Price and Peter Dutton, without evidence
You have raised a number of points. I would like to respond in my blog. Are you ok with my including your tweets in my response?— Grappy (@grappysb) October 12, 2023
Captain Chaos did agree with my response in a post. So here goes.
- As a city based observer, is relatable to 'bureaucracies' and those without knowledge & experience doing what they think is needed as opposed to knowing what is needed.
Yes, I do not claim to know 'what is needed'. Nor do I claim specific knowledge or experience. My suggestions are exactly that, suggestions.
- You overlook the why. Why is a First Nation's male more likely to go to prison than University? Why are there problems with social cohesion?
I do not overlook the why, but admit I do not go into the specifics. I have not analysed the individual issues that make the difference between indigenous and non-indigenous but rather focused on what is different in the way we govern the two groups. So if we are getting different outcomes then maybe our governing them differently is contributing to the different outcomes.
- Me personally I would not have implied that they are more violent, abusive and truancy inclined. Do you have actual evidence for that?
The statistics on domestic violence, truancy, and incarceration rates speak for themselves.
Indigenous Australians make up almost 30% of hospitalisations due to domestic violence, report finds - while indigenous people represent ~3% of the population
Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander prisoners accounted for 32% of all prisoners again while ATI represented just 3% of the population
- Also note the intervention did suspend the Racial Discrimination Act. Since that time the insinuation that there is an epidemic of abuse (child) has been left unsubstantiated In fact, in recent months the unsubstantiated allegation was repeated by both Jacinta Price and Peter Dutton, without evidence That's been reported in the media & both Jacinta Price and Peter Dutton have failed to make reports of the alleged abuse that they are required to do, by law, to investigating authorities. I could continue, however, I think what I have outlined suffices, check your preconceptions
The 'intervention' was in response to the Little Children are Sacred report published in June 2007, being the findings of an inquiry into child sexual abuse in the NT commissioned by the Northern Territory Government. The report provided shocking evidence of domestic violence and sexual abuse. So it was not without a basis. Also with regard to Jacinta Price, I think she has personal experience through her exposure to indigenous life. You cannot both accept there is a GAP and then dismiss the symptoms that are evidence of the GAP.

The world has just witnessed an act of barbarism! It is hard to accept human beings perpetrating the atrocities we have seen. Israel has vowed to destroy the barbarians responsible and to ensure it cannot happen again. Most Western leaders have expressed their support and reaffirmed Israel's right to self-defence. A few, however, have qualified their support, demanding that any response by Israel be 'proportionate'.
What, I ask, is a proportionate response to such heinous war crimes? The common use of the word 'proportionate means 'of relative equal magnitude'. What would be of relatively equal magnitude to 5000 rockets launched indiscriminately towards large built-up areas, the massacre of over 1000 mainly women and children of all ages, and the brutal abduction of over 150 hostages.
Would a proportionate response be randomly firing 5000 rockets back into Gaza, capturing 1000 men, women and children, massacring them, and then abducting 150 random civilians off the streets of Gaza? No one could argue that would not be of equal magnitude.
What would the civilised world say of that? What would Australia's Foreign Minister Penny Wong say to that? After all, in one of her earliest tweets on the attack by Hamas she added; -
"Australia urges the exercise of restraint & protection of civilian lives."
Restraint? Protection of civilian lives? Would that be proportionate? I don't think many would think so. Did Hamas show restraint? Did they protect civilian lives? Certainly not!
Of course, she is not alone. Many, too many, so-called leaders and commentators urge restraint on Israel when they would never do so for other countries faced with terrorist attacks. Did they urge restraint on the US after the 9/11 attack? Of course not. The US started the war on terror, invaded Afghanistan, and later Iraq. They did not hold back. Nor did their citizens want them to. It seems Israel alone is singled out for such advice on proportionality, restraint, and the protection of civilians.
I hope these leaders never face Israel's dilemma, but if they do, I expect they would truly identify with Israel, perhaps for the first time, and then say proportionality be damned. If these barbarians target my people, we will use disproportionate, unprecedented, unforgettable force to ensure that these perpetrators will forever remember there are severe, brutal, disproportionate, consequences to such atrocities. Consequences harsh enough to build a wall of deterrence that lasts for decades.

J'Accuse, I accuse all journalists of betraying their sacred duty. A duty not just to their profession, but to the very soul of humanity. Have you forgotten your role as the watchdogs of society? All journalists? Yes, every single one who has turned a blind eye to the truth, who has failed to probe the uncomfortable questions, who has silently observed the spreading web of deception.
We see those who know the answers but dare not unveil them, those who allow the fabrications of others to fester in the public mind, those who cower in fear of losing their paychecks, their stature, or becoming the target of their peers' scorn. Is this the legacy they wish to leave?
Had they but found the courage to speak out, to seek the unvarnished truth, to do the job they were called to do, our world would be different.
Consider what we would all have gained had they done their job by;-
- exposing sexual abuse by Harvey Weinstein, Rolf Harris, Bill Cosby, or Jeffrey Epstein when they first heard of instances
- calling out China's infiltration into the Western World through stealing intellectual property via the 1000 Minds projects, the harassment of ex-Chinese citizens via the illegal Chinese Police Stations or its tentacles in the upper echelons of governments worldwide
- reporting honestly about the Antifa-led riots and not condoning them by calling them 'mainly peaceful'
- reporting honestly and accurately on the riot at the Capitol on Jan 6 and not mislabeling it an 'insurrection' and the 'worst since the Civil War'
- calling out the origin of the COVID virus as most likely from the Wuhan WIV
- not encouraging mandatory vaccination when using an emergency authorised vaccine
- discouraging climate hysteria by providing an accurate IPCC perspective and calling out terms such as 'global boiling'
- calling out the immoral support of Hamas and Hezbollah by European countries calling it aid knowing the money is diverted to funding terrorists
- accurately reporting on the Hunter Biden laptop
- exposing Joe Biden's cognitive deficit before he was elected. There was ample evidence for every one.

I recently came across the Quadrant Article about Bess Nungarrayi Price dated 5th September 2023 titled "Making Life Even Worse for Us" and felt that every Australian should read it. Seeing I had missed it for a month, perhaps it was worth putting out a post dedicated to it.
It would be unfair for me to quote it in its entirety as Quadrant has published it and would like you to subscribe ( See Quadrant online).
Nevertheless I include some snippets in order to encourage you to read it in full; -
This is Bess Nungarrayi Price’s foreword to the new book The Spirit Behind the Voice: The Religious Dimension of the “Voice” Proposal, edited by Gabriël Moens and Augusto Zimmermann and published by Connor Court, retailing for $29.95. Stephen Chavura, Senior Lecturer in History at Campion College in Sydney, says of this book:
“One could be forgiven for thinking that the only Christian response to the Voice to Parliament is Yes, if we went by the pronouncements of prominent churchmen and theologians. But I think these prominent churchmen and theologians are misguided on this issue. It is my conviction that when all things are considered, Christians should vote No to this divisive constitutional change. This book is a unique contribution to the debate in that it takes the question of the Voice to Parliament very seriously from a Christian, Jewish and secular point of view. I urge everyone who is pondering how to vote on this momentous question to carefully read this book and give serious consideration to voting No."
And some snippets from Bess Price from the Foreword to her book; -
"Naturally those who control the national debate are those people of indigenous descent who speak English and are well educated kardiya way. They have access to the media and politicians and are the loudest in their criticism of governments and kardiya (white men) in general. They criticise the old missionaries, but they don’t live by the Old Law and never have. They romanticise it, creating what I call a Disneyland version. They never talk about the down side, the acceptance of violence as a way to settle conflicts, the misogyny and acceptance of violence against women, the forcing of young girls into marriage with old men, the belief in sorcery. These old ways still cause a lot of problems, like continued violence against women, family feuding and the humbugging that forces so many to give their money to addicted kin for grog and gambling. All of these things come from the culture we were taught as children. The so-called First Nations Leaders tell us that all of these things are caused by kardiya, by racism and colonisation. They have made everything worse but all of these problems come from our own culture. The “leaders” call any kardiya racist if they say this and they put great effort into “cancelling” Aboriginal people like me who want the truth to be known."
"My joining the Country Liberal Party has made me anathema to the Labor Party since. They think they own us, and they can’t tolerate our dissenting from their narrative. And they don’t forget.
My family was denied royalties that we were entitled to by the Central Land Council. My father’s role as a senior traditional owner for the country and Dreamings involved were simply denied. When we made a formal complaint we were denied the most basic natural justice. We have witnessed violence at Central Land Council convened meetings. They don’t hesitate to use intimidation and manipulation to achieve their goals. We are at their mercy. I was told to my face by a white Central Land Council staff member, “I am a lawyer. I can tell you that you can’t win.” But I have not given up."
"The Voice advocates are polite and well-mannered in the light of day but many are offensive and aggressive in the shadows. My daughter, Senator Nampijinpa Price, and I have been threatened with death several times. In the Northern Territory we women are used to that. We are routinely vilified in obscene, racist and misogynist terms simply because we disagree with the Left’s narrative. GetUp sends young Aboriginal women, mostly from Down South, to campaign against us in elections in favour of kardiya who have done nothing for us. We have been ignored or defamed by the mainstream media. I was awarded an Australia Medal on Australia Day this year. I was contacted by commercial media from all over the country but I have not been contacted once by the ABC, even in my own town of Alice Springs. The Green/Left wish we didn’t exist. We have a different point of view that they don’t want to be heard."
"I will be voting No and I urge all Australians with a conscience, whatever their religion, to do the same. I am sick of burying our children, seeing education denied to them, seeing them incarcerated, living in dire poverty and taken from families that don’t know how to care for them. We want real solutions and decision-makers willing to listen to all of us, whatever our politics and the languages we speak. We need open ears, not a constitutionally embedded, bureaucratised, highly selective Voice set up and run by those who have controlled the narrative and the funds for decades while everything got worse for us."
Some home 'truths' that we do not hear from most of the media. Well worth reading the whole article at "Making Life Even Worse for Us".

With but one week to go, we are in the 'home stretch' of this extended Voice referndum. Given the 24/7 media we now know what 'saturation' advertising really means. So no doubt you are getting 'over it'. Despite this if you are still in doubt about your vote, let me add a few words to try to sway you.Despite the fine words by many a YES advocate downplaying the impact of the Voice, never mind the details, you owe it to our indigenous citizens, it is the moral thing to do, nothing could be further from the truth.
This is a momentous decision that will shape the nation's future. The Voice referendum carries significant implications for the country.
I have already recorded my reasons for voting NO (see Why I am voting NO to the Voice ), however, that was not an exhaustive list, and in this note want to focus on some of the consequences of a successful YES vote.
One of the commitments Anthony Albanese announced on election night was that he would "implement the Uluṟu statement in full". The authors of this statement have made it clear that the Voice is just the initial step in 3 stage process emblazoned on many a T-Shirt " Voice, Treaty, Truth".
While Albanese has tried repeatedly to divert discussion from Treaty or Truth, preferring to narrowly focus our attention on the 'Vibe', it is nonsensical to simply vote YES and ignore what follows. After all Albo has repeatedly stated that he wants to implement the Uluru statement in full. So, we cannot but conclude that the Treaty and Truth steps are the necessary consequences of a YES vote.
Given the government's refusal to even discuss these steps there is no detail or formal policy position to review. However, we can rely on the authors of the Uluru statement to gauge their thinking. There are some 100 pages of notes recording formal discussions between the authors that are available The full document is printed in full here: Uluru Statement from the Heart. They cover a wide range of topics and these in turn trigger a whole range of questions. Questions like; -
- Questions about Treaty
- How does a country create a treaty with a subset of its own citizens?
- Who signs the treaty when government representatives are indigenous themselves?
- Will there be reparations?
- How much, who will pay and who will receive it?
- Questions about Truth telling and its implications?
- Have we not been telling the truth until now?
- Who determines what is true?
- Will the process build unity or cause more division ?

The paper is based on 17 countries in the Southern Hemisphere and equatorial region. A definite causal link is shown between many peaks in all-cause mortality and rapid vaccine rollouts. The authors quantify the fatal toxicity risk per injection, which is exceedingly large in the most elderly.
and most alarmingly concludes vaccination caused
17.0 ± 0.5 million COVID-19 vaccine deaths worldwide, from 13.50
billion injections up to 2 September 2023, ...(1 death per 470 living
persons, in less than 3 years), and did not measurably prevent any deaths.
The implications of these findings are profound and require immediate attention from our leaders and society as a whole. If these studies hold true, it signifies a monumental failure in our efforts to safeguard our citizens' health. Therefore, it is imperative that we shift the spotlight onto this issue and encourage open and honest discussions.
- Open Discussion: We need our leaders and experts to engage in open discussions about these findings. This is not a time for political bias or suppression of differing views. All voices, regardless of their perspective, should be heard and considered.
- Thorough Medical Investigation: The medical establishment must conduct comprehensive studies on the topic. These studies should be rigorous, transparent, and impartial. The results should be published in peer-reviewed articles, allowing the scientific community to scrutinize and validate the findings.
- Media Responsibility: Media outlets must play a responsible role in disseminating information. It is their duty to present the findings without sensationalism or censorship. The public has the right to be informed about potential risks associated with vaccines, as well as the benefits.
- Tech Transparency: Big tech companies should resist the urge to suppress information. Censorship, particularly in matters of public health, only fuels distrust. Instead, they should ensure that all perspectives have a platform for discussion.
