17 September Brisbane hearing 20 September update
10 AM 20 September Queensland District Court George Street – hearing of application on declaration on jurisdiction. Defamation QC will appear for me. If the court rules that it has jurisdiction to hear argument on matter published in NSW we’ll argue the remainder of the contextual truth strike out application Her Honour refused to hear in June – on basis Qld court does not have jurisdiction. Plus an application by UM to order me to pay costs for the jurisdictional application that I have no control over.
Yes, I know. Keep your nightdresses on and I’ll inform you all of the result ASAP after hearing.
Thank you for all your messages etc. Yes, I’m paying attention – all received, and I will reply when I have a chance. Donate to my defence fund! Remember I’m not paying lawyers. Its strictly an avoid homelessness for Esther while she outs a multimillion dollar Eso healing thingo via the courts that includes a toner cartridge and copy paper for Paula Fletcher’s letters budget. What a waste of good forests. 😦 Donate! Please.
Ray Karam update
Word in from Lismore is that Ray didn’t make the preselection shortlist. The field was narrowed on Saturday to Young Nats favourite, Tregeagle farmer Austin Curtin, the Tenterfield Mayor who doesn’t do his research, Peter Petty, and Andrew Gordon who works with the amazing Deborah Benhayon on the Lismore Chamber of Universal Medicine Commerce.
12 September Ray Karam tilt for State Parliament
Judging by calls I got over the weekend, I wasn’t the only one surprised to hear Ray Karam put himself forward for National Party preselection for the state parliamentary seat of Lismore in the 2019 elections. The Nationals – a conservative party that represents the interests of rural Australians – is looking for a candidate to replace retiring member, Thomas George. The Northern Star ran profiles of seven preselection candidates on 9 September – no mention of Ray’s UM affiliation, or that Ray only recently joined the National Party. Last year I mentioned he’d been schmoozing Nats identities in the lead up to his unsuccessful run for Mayor of Ballina, however he told The Echo he wasn’t a member of any political party.
Apparently it will be a community preselection, meaning it’s open to all registered voters in the Lismore electorate, and the vote will be held at a meeting at Lismore City Hall on Saturday 16 September. Anyone want to guess how many UM subscribers will show up? The thing is, it’s not just down to a Lismore Chamber of Commerce style ‘People’s Choice‘ vote. Sources tell me the candidates are vetted by the party. I’m told the party knows how to operate Google. One wonders what they’ll make of Ray’s comments to The Echo last year about his proud membership of the UM FACTS Team. One also wonders if the Nationals are ready for an anti-fluoride, pro-occult and passionately pro-Serge candidate.

Tenterfield not sold on Girl to Woman Festival
UM exported its Girl to Woman commercial grooming festival to rural Tenterfield on August 27, but in spite of the Real Media Real Change’s PR fanfare, by the time the convoy of Audis rolled into town and spilled forth the Esoteric sales contingent and obligatory photographers (to take pictures of little girls in makeup), the good citizens of Tenterfield had seen and heard enough. They didn’t go. A look at the publicity footage shows about half a dozen Tenterfield kids showed up and about the same number of local adults. The rest of the saggy bums on seats, fifty or sixty of them, motored in from Goonellabah and surrounds, dragging their half starved, fun deprived kids with them, hoping to love-bomb new customers with how to be ‘who you truly are’ as long as its within UM’s rules, sell them stuff and convert them to their nihilistic New World Religion complete with a workshop habit, years of devotional volunteer promotional work, lifetimes of expenditure and an eternity of whingeing.
But alas, the Sons of God drove three hours to sell crap to themselves.
I imagine the EPIC FAIL, one of so very many over the past five years, will be blamed on me. Again.
It won’t have anything to do with the lousy content of the thing – teaching primary school kids how to paint their nails and make ‘perfumed body cream’, charging them to be photographed for UM publicity, and selling them orthorexia nervosa and other toxic stuff. It wouldn’t be the organizers’ esoteric honesty and integrity- or the recent hysterics about ‘harassment and intimidation’ and warnings to locals to CALL THE POLICE that pissed people off. It wouldn’t be down to the fact they didn’t bother disclosing the sexist, exploitative garbage was not a community event, as advertised, but a commercial recruitment pitch from an occult religious business. Desperate for financial converts. I’ve said it a hundred times – parents, teachers, the community, have a right to know who is behind events targeting kids.
Which brings me to this guy – Tenterfield’s mayor, Peter Petty.
He’s also up for preselection for the Lismore seat. Walks into a commercial event run by an organization that’s a magnet for bad press and gives his endorsement. Onya Peter Petty. It’s amazing what people will overlook when they’re trying to get elected and get wind they might win a few votes from a clutch of overdressed Goonellabah Esos. Care to comment on Esoteric Womens Health Pty Ltd’s marketing of Esoteric Breast Massage with the claim that women harm their babies via breast milk if their breasts aren’t ‘cleared’ of ‘imposed male energy’?
And what benefits did UM bring to town? They came to town under false pretences to sell their worthless pyramid scheme and Esoteric products – to take good money from the local economy. Tenterfield might have been able to sell them a tank or two of petrol, a few bottles of water and a packet of almonds between 50 of them, but that would have been it.
It’s a cautionary tale. Research the people you endorse. The rest of Tenterfield seemed able to manage it.
20 September short hearing Brisbane
On 20 September will be a short hearing for the Raphael & Karam v Rockett defamation claim. I updated last month with the ruling for the June hearing of six applications that dwindled down to two that ended up making pretty much no difference to my defence for the amount of effort they threw at them. At the June hearing Her Honour ruled that the Queensland court doesn’t have jurisdiction over the first matter complained of, and refused to hear over half the argument, given that the first matter, an email, was published in a different state, NSW, and must be heard, (according to the Defamation Act of Qld 2005 section 11(1)) under the law applicable to that jurisdiction. Turns out Ray and Caroline want the court to make a declaration on jurisdiction, in spite of Her Honour’s ruling that there was no evidence the email was published to anyone other than in the state of NSW. They’ve also indicated they want me to pay the costs of their application. We’ll be in court some time after 10 am on 20 September in the District Court of Qld, George Street, Brisbane. My QC or his colleague will appear for me. I don’t expect it will take long. I’m guessing half an hour. I’ll update if anything changes.
Converys Lane compounded properties
Funny what you find out when you’re rifling through Development Applications, and then run a property ownership search around Converys Lane. We know who owns the ‘Hall of Ageless Wisdom’ Church of Serge property at 37 Converys Lane, which used to be earmarked as the College of Universal Medicine premises until the ACNC asked a bunch of questions about how tax exempt gift fund proceeds would be used to improve a commercial property and whether the owner would benefit financially if the charity was wound up… So yeah, his holiness bought 37 Converys for about $2.3m and told the McIntyre v O’Regan hearing that he spent $1.2m on renovations. Unfortunately, he didn’t have development approval from the Ballina Council to increase student numbers over 100. Mid this year the Council refused to increase the student numbers to 250 due to concerns about traffic volume. Anyway, it turns out two neighbouring properties were purchased in 2015 and 2011 by his well heeled faith-full, owner of ACM, now Evolve College, Robert Wild, and UM’s in house barrister, College of UM director, and retained counsel for Benhayon, Raphael and Karam, Charles Wilson. The larger property is now owned by Charlie’s ex (yes, a UM devotee too) since they split. All up, the three blocks total about 120,000 m².
As Serge says, ‘a true seer uses smell to look into the future‘. Take a sniff past UM’s pea soup flatulence and overripe internet PR and one smells expansion plans, which I hear have gone belly up. Any amateur clairsentient would have seen the writing on the wall yonks ago – the ‘non-accreditation’ ‘professional’ Chakra-puncture practitioner training hasn’t exactly put the UM/Evolve conglomerate through the profit stratosphere. It’s just another product in a market over supplied with New Age ‘healing’ crap.
Wollongbar is a nice place. The potential site for an Esoteric practitioner ‘accreditation‘ and palliative care mega-mart it’s not.
