I have just finished re-reading the first instalment of the Ned Kelly series and I find the same thought going through my mind: are we, the normal ordinary people, being turned into the Kelly Gang? 

I cannot help but reflect on history and see too many similarities for my liking. The police and the court system and government seem to feel that we are criminals for standing up for our families. Nothing in what is happening today is that dissimilar to the Kelly Gang who seem to have been bullied and coerced into acting and reacting to persecution. Our elected officials are being ruled by so-called experts giving advice, not opinions. That is dangerous to us and to our future. 

I wonder if the goal is to make us so angry, so frustrated and so outraged that we are being taunted into breaking the " law " so that we can be disciplined, dealt with and bullied into submission. I wonder. Being ruled by advice can be very dangerous indeed, except to those who hide behind the apron strings of those that dish it out. 

Hot on the heels of the Ned Kelly article, I have just finished watching the first Trump Rally in ages; what a dose of what many of us call " Hopium " it was. It was so damned refreshing to hear a man telling the TRUTH. Something that is a rare commodity these days. Thousands of normal and decent Americans travelled to Wellington Ohio to hear the words of the man they clearly LOVE. A man, I must confess I love and admire enormously. Without apology. 


It dawned on me while I was watching the Rally that he is all about expressing an opinion and not spouting it as advice. 

I am quite frankly sick of " advice. " Particularly from those who declare themselves as experts and start telling us what to do. My anger at this takeover of our ideals and our way of life is off the radar. 

We have elected politicians, our representatives, being paid good money every year to make decisions and to act in our best interests and in accordance with OUR wishes. 

Yet they constantly hide behind the apron strings of " experts " who go off half cocked in order to bolster their own ego and self importance. If something goes wrong, it is not their fault: it is the expert.


Now, it is fair to say the President Trump made some bad decisions. Much like Churchill did.  

But neither man cowered behind the advice of experts in order to justify his mistakes. They owned their mistakes and learned from them.

When Churchill was confronted with the ultimatum from Hitler that they negotiate a peace agreement, his experts advised him to agree. Hitler had more or less counted on a peace agreement with the UK in June 1940 but Churchill went against them and delivered one of his most famous speeches.

On 18th of June, Churchill went to Westminster to argue his case against negotiation. 

He told the truth. 

" The Battle of France is over. I expect that the Battle of Britain is about to begin. Upon this battle depends the survival of Christian civilization. Upon it depends our own British life, and the long continuity of our institutions and our Empire.

The whole fury and might of the enemy must very soon be turned on us. Hitler knows that he will have to break us in this island or lose the war. If we can stand up to him, all Europe may be free and the life of the world may move forward into broad, sunlit uplands.

But if we fail, then the whole world, including the United States, including all that we have known and cared for, will sink into the abyss of a new Dark Age made more sinister, and perhaps more protracted, by the lights of perverted science.

Let us therefore brace ourselves to our duties and so bear ourselves that, if the British Empire and its Commonwealth last for a thousand years, men will still say, 'This was their finest hour.' "


His powerful words inspired people and lifted their souls and hearts, their sense of patriotism and their desire to be free. He did not offer any solution or quick fix. He offered the people a chance to fight for what they took for granted and that which was about to be swept away because " experts " felt that it was a wiser course of action.

In some respects, I felt a similar sense of foreboding and honesty today, listening to Trump speak. He did not mince his words or try and hide behind expert advice. He simply spoke the truth.

Trump gave me no sense of false optimism. No sense of expert advice telling him or the American People it was going to be easy.

It is not going to be easy. It is not going to be resolved without hardship and sacrifice.

But nothing worthwhile is ever gained without commitment and a belief in the ideals we cherish. Over the years, we here on Patriot Realm have learned that history tells us more about the future than the present ever will. 


Ned Kelly was targeted by the Victorian police and judiciary, much like we are seeing on a daily basis in this so-called Covid Crisis. Experts are advising and manipulating our future and we are increasingly running for the hills to hide from the Law. 

Are we being driven to break the law in order to protect our families and our freedom? Are we being handcuffed and arrested because we say " No " to a vaccine or a lockdown that diminishes our rights? 

Who knows.


Perhaps we need someone to deliver a strong message to Canberra or our State Parliaments that defies the bully tactics of the enemies of our freedom to say that the Battle for Australia has begun and that the survival of our Australian way of life, and that they will have to break us in order to win the war against us. 

President Trump gave me the impression he was warning the American People that they are at war with their experts, their governments and with each other. That all that they have known and cared for, will sink into the abyss of a new Dark Age made more sinister, and perhaps more protracted, by the lights of perverted science. Perhaps. like Australia and other Nations around the world, let us therefore brace ourselves to our duties and so bear ourselves that, if our Nations last for a thousand years, men will still say, 'This was their finest hour.'

What I do know is that there is a dangerous difference between an opinion and advice and someone needs to step up and claim RESPONSIBILITY and stop hiding behind apron strings. 

And that will not happen any time soon. 

Like William Wallace and Ned Kelly. heroes are sometimes seen as criminals.

Maybe Craig Kelly is one of the Kelly Gang?

If that is the case, I am a member of the Kelly Gang.
