Just checked my emails that low and behold, this was in there.  As i cannot make that night (Son’s Birthday) i thought i would put the invitation on my blog so that any one in Sydney that can attend, can do so and know about the event. Please share with anyone in the Sydney Basin interested in attending. – AA

Australian Taxpayers Alliance – is the organisation running the event. Contact: http://www.taxpayers.org.au or enquiries@taxpayers.org.au or phone: 02 9864 8651.

I would like to invite you to a very special event. An event that reveals the sordid details behind the allegations surrounding Julia Gillard, Bruce Wilson, and Ralph Blewitt – and how the government tried to stifle free speech and suppress this story.

Late last year, Michael Smith, the host of Radio 2UE’s afternoon show, was set to go on air with an explosive story. He had the detailed facts behind allegations of Julia Gillard’s involvement in corrupt activities by her then partner Bruce Wilson and his accomplice Ralph Blewitt. Activities that make Craig Thompson look like a saint in comparison.

It was cleared by lawyers, by producers. The facts were all confirmed.

10 minutes before he was to go to air, the story was pulled and Michael Smith lost his job.

That very day, The Australian newspaper reported similar allegations. Julia Gillard herself phoned News Limited CEO John Hartigan, and demanded that the story was retracted, and that “News Ltd give her an undertaking that it would never again report in any way on websites or in its newspapers on this matter.” Senior Journalist Glen Milne was sacked, and Andrew Bolt ordered to never speak of this again.
The story was buried.

But the truth can’t stay buried forever. Free Speech can’t be suppressed. Two weeks ago, Mike Smith had an interview with Alan Jones and spelled out in great detail not only what he learned – but the attempts by the government to silence it. A few days later Ralph Blewitt came forward and said he’d be willing to testify in a court of law – if granted immunity.

THIS IS THE STORY THE GOVERNMENT TRIED TO KILL.

THIS IS A STORY THAT ALL AUSTRALIANS MUST KNOW.  

That’s why the Australian Taxpayers’ Alliance has just arranged for Mike Smith to make a special address in Sydney detailing in full the truth behind this case – and the shameful attempts by the government to stifle any reporting on it.

This is our chance to hear from Michael Smith himself – and learn all the facts.

this is an event no Australian can afford to miss.

If you are in Sydney, or able to make it to Sydney on Monday the 20th, I hope you will be able to join Michael Smith for this very special event.

A UK bank hid £160billion of transfers that helped finance terror groups and Iran’s nuclear weapons programme, it was claimed last night.

In another devastating blow to the City of London’s reputation, Standard Chartered is accused of conspiring with Tehran for almost ten years.

Regulators in New York said it was a ‘rogue institution’ that broke sanctions imposed on Iran and put profits ahead of global security and the law.

It worked with three Iranian banks suspected of being used by Tehran to finance its weapons programmes, according to an explosive report.

US authorities suspect the Iranian banks also funded terrorist and militant groups, including Hezbollah, Hamas and the Palestinian Islamic Jihad.

The New York State Department of Financial Services accused Standard Chartered of doing business with Burma, Libya and Sudan, which are also under sanctions.

It said the London-based bank, which has 87,000 global staff with 2,000 of them in London, had shown ‘obvious contempt’ for US financial regulations.

The case echoes that of HSBC, which faces up to £600million in fines for laundering billions of pounds for Mexican drug lords and rogue states.

The world of banking has already been rocked by the ‘Libor’ rate rigging scandal that landed Barclays with a £290million fine last month.

At least 15 financial institutions, including Royal Bank of Scotland and Lloyds, are being investigated over concerns that rogue traders manipulated crucial interest rates which are used to set mortgages and are linked to trillions of pounds of investments.

In a devastating conclusion to its report, the New York watchdog wrote that Standard Chartered was ‘motivated by greed’ and had acted ‘without any regard for legal, reputational, and national security consequences’.

‘SCB designed and implemented an elaborate scheme by which to use its New York branch as a front for prohibited dealings with Iran – dealings that indisputably helped sustain a global threat to peace and stability,’ the New York regulators alleged.

The watchdog, which reviewed more than 30,000 pages of documents during its nine-month investigation, said Standard Chartered covered its tracks by removing information from wire transfer messages used by US authorities to identify sanctioned countries – a process known as ‘wire stripping’.

The regulator said in ‘its evident zeal to make hundreds of millions of dollars at almost any cost’ the bank falsified business records, failed to keep accurate books, obstructed authorities and committed ‘wilful and egregious violations of law’.

Sixty thousand financial transactions were cited as suspicious.

It even cited a response from a senior London-based Standard Chartered executive to a New York official saying: ‘You f***ing Americans. Who are you to tell us, the rest of the world, that we’re not going to deal with Iranians?’

The Americans have threatened to revoke the licence of Standard Chartered in the US, which makes most of its money in Asia and sponsors Liverpool Football Club.

For nearly a decade until 2010 the lender ‘engaged in deceptive and fraudulent misconduct’ to move money through its New York branch on behalf of Iranian clients.

US sanctions against Tehran date back to 1979 but were heightened following the Iranian invasion of Iraq in 1980.

In 2002, the country was described by former US president George W Bush as part of his ‘axis of evil’. Standard Chartered was one of the few banks to emerge from the financial crisis intact.

Julia Gillard had criminal allegations made against her in 1995 when she was accused of helping her boyfriend steal over $1,000,000 from the Australian Workers Union (AWU) and helping him spend the money on such things as her personal home renovations and dresses.

Julia Gillard has never denied helping him rip off the $1,000,000 plus dollars, what she has done is denied doing it knowingly. Her part was helping set up an account called the “AWU Members Welfare Association No 1 Account” and possibly other accounts that the money was laundered through when she was a lawyer working for Slater and Gordon who were the solicitors representing the Australian Workers Union.

The allegations against Julia Gillard were initially raised in the Victorian Parliament in 1995.

In an interview with Glenn Milne of the Sydney Sunday Telegraph in 2007 Julia Gillard said:

“These matters happened between 12 and 15 years ago,” Ms Gillard told The Sunday Telegraph. “I was young and naive.

“I was in a relationship, which I ended, and obviously it was all very distressing. I am by no means the first person to find out that someone close turns out to be different to what you had believed them to be. It’s an ordinary human error.

“I was obviously hurt when I was later falsely accused publicly of wrong-doing. I didn’t do anything wrong and to have false allegations in the media was distressing.”

The article also says “But she has strenuously denied ever knowing what the association’s bank accounts were used for.”
