Why does your Council desperately want recognition in the Constitution ?

An “expert” panel is commissioned by the Gillard government to try to figure out how to squirm into power, their unlawful and unconstitutional Local Government (ie – your Local Council).

The “expert” panel wants Australians to vote for a change to our Commonwealth Constitution, which would give local government (Councils) recognition.

This shows 2 blatant facts

1 – The Government knows that the Constitution and Common Law prevail,

2 – The very fact that there is a move to have Councils recognised is PROOF that they are NOT recognised.

And why did our wise founding fathers who drafted the Constitution deliberately exclude Local Govt.? Simple – to prevent local dictatorships, harassment and corruption in towns, communities and cities. Read – The Origins of Common Law by Arthur R Hogue (Liberty Press)

COUNCILS ARE NOT CONSTITUTIONALLY LAWFUL
 VOTE – NO

WHEN A NATIONAL REFERENDUM IS BROUGHT TO THE PEOPLE OF AUSTRALIA, AS WE CANNOT AFFORD FOR COUNCILS TO BECOME A THIRD TIER OF GOVERNMENT.

WHY CAN’T WE?

Local Councils are PRIVATE COMPANIES with ABNs Their By-laws and Statutes apply only to their own staff. Their true purpose is to provide essential services + maintenance.

If they become “government” your rates will soar unabated.

Local government and the associated “Acts”(illegal) that support it have reverted us back to the dark ages before the Magna Carta and the Bill of Rights. We are now subject to “off with their heads legislation” … all done without mandate.  If Local Governments are are legally recognised their agenda will be to bring each locality under the United Nations Agenda 21 Club of Rome’s plan, which is to abolish State Governments and to break our country up into smaller more manageable regions to help bring about the New World Order plan of forced population reduction.

The respective State Local Government Acts (illegal) seek to enable council staff to commit trespass, theft, debt bondage and extortion, And yet this “panel” and the political parties think this abuse of power deserves Constitutional recognition. We are now faced with the Stalinist anti-freedom political conditions today as the people faced under James II. Bring on the next Glorious Revolution.

What people want, is a reduction in the cost of living and the right to the quiet enjoyment of their hard won private property, without harassment and State sponsored extortion.

Local Councils in Referendum 1988 (This was the 3rd attempt since 1901) Question 3 from the referendum was: A Proposed Law; ‘To alter the Constitution to recognise local government.’ Do you approve of this alteration ?

The SPECIFIC (Federal Referendum) proposal was: Constitution Alteration (Local Government) 1988…. 119A, It asked you the people …

“Each state shall provide for the establishment and continuance of a system of local government, with local government bodies elected in accordance with the laws of the state, and empowered to administer, and make BY-LAWS FOR, their respective areas in accordance with the laws of the state”

Note the words – establishment and continuance – for reasons stated before, Local Councils were not lawfully established as Government and the referendum asked your permission for them to be so.

The entire 1988 referendum was REJECTED by the will of the people. It obtained NO majority in any State and an overall minority of 3,084,678 votes.

http://www.electoralgeography.com/new/en/countries/a/australia/1988-referendum-australia.html

So why do they desperately want recognition ?

Simple – if councils and staff, (ie – those “wannabe policemen and women”) don’t get it, they could all end up in jail or lose their jobs. The general public is starting to wake up to their fraud and extortion tactics to obtain revenue to feed their own bureaucracy.

When we DO see a referendum, and once again, thinking people vote “NO”, then thousands of major Writs need to be prepared now and placed in “ALL” courts around Australia charging local councillors personally for their past theft and extortion via rates, parking fines, land taxes ….. and don’t for a moment think those in admin are ignorant of their actions … they know exactly !

 Local Councils are PRIVATE COMPANIES with ABNs Their true purpose – to provide essential services + maintainence.

If this was done without their top heavy bureaucracy, your rates would be a fraction of what they are now

President of the Local Government Association of Queensland, Paul Bell says “if there aren’t changes, direct funding by the Commonwealth for programs like the Roads to Recovery could be in jeopardy. 99 per cent of it spent on roads that are not able to be funded through local rates.” (so where is your License and car registration money going now ?)

Paul Bell says that in some instances, communities want to work with the Australian government directly rather than via their state government.   He accepts there is likely to be opposition by a number of States.  “They like to be able to control the size, the shape and how local governments in their state work.” .. “We as local government are part of the constitution of the State,

NOTE – what is not said is that State Constitutions are fraudulent as they have never been approved by the electorate at referendum and are in breach of Sec 109)

And he says – “but what we are saying is where in the local interest, there is a national opportunity for the Australian government to work directly with local communities, that should be able to happen legally.” In other words, they know they are NOT currently acting legally and are charging monies illegally.

As part of Labor’s negotiation to form a minority government, Julia Gillard gave an undertaking to hold a referendum on indigenous recognition in the Constitution as well as constitutional recognition for local government. (I’m sure the indigenous people are NOT so excited about this nonsense And remember, we are being dictated to by a few independents who betrayed their own electorates)

 Local Councils are PRIVATE COMPANIES with ABNs
Their true purpose – to provide essential services + maintainence

Don’t say, “There’s nothing I can do!” There is!! …….

The public need this information and it is up to you to place a hard copy in their hands. It is NOT ENOUGH to just sit and forward this email to a few who might do likewise. If you care for your neighbour, yourself, your children and their future, print many copies, leave your beloved computer for a while and letterbox your area, your club and everyone in your Church. 1000 leaflets will cost you about $60.

If you choose not to, then expect more rules, harassment, fines and massive rates increases.

Love thy neighbour as thyself.
All that is necessary for the triumph of evil
is that good men do nothing.

Army of Chinese workers on diplomatic visas flown in to build new embassy in Canberra

Story mirrored from the Sunday Telegraph, November 3rd, 2012.  (A research friend of mine has noticed that stories of public importance are being removed from the internet, sometimes soon after posting, so thought it was in the public interest to post a copy of this story)

http://www.couriermail.com.au/news/army-of-chinese-workers-on-diplomatic-visas-flown-in-to-build-new-embassy-in-canberra/story-e6freon6-1226509841199

CHINA has flown in a small army of workers on diplomatic visas for a highly secretive project to build its new embassy in Canberra.

Immune from local laws, the builders are toiling away on the new mega embassy behind high steel walls designed to keep out prying eyes.  The extraordinary project – a few blocks from Parliament House – ensures the building will not be bugged as its consulate was when it was built in the early 1980s.

There is talk of a tunnel linking the buildings, but Chinese and Australian officials remained tight-lipped.

An embassy liaison officer, who gave his name as Dan, referred questions to the Department of Foreign Affairs and Trade. “I can’t tell you anything regarding this project,” he told The Sunday Telegraph. In an hour on Friday morning, two vehicles – supplying cement and gas bottles – entered the site, which is obscured from most sides.  Officials sought to film The Sunday Telegraph’s visit.

Meanwhile, the project’s secrecy has prompted concerns over worker safety. Union and ACT government representatives are barred from the site and there appears little they can do to ensure no one is injured or killed.  There appears to be grounds for concerns. The Sunday Telegraph observed six workers moving across a roof three levels high wearing no safety harnesses for protection.  Steel fencing was hung near a public footpath before being bolted into place, but prone to collapse in a gust of wind.

Dean Hall, ACT secretary of the Construction Forestry Mining and Energy Union, has tried to enter the site.  He is worried the Chinese are routinely breaching safety standards and is also concerned Australian workers who supply concrete and other materials will not be covered in the event of an accident.  But DFAT had earlier told Mr Hall there would be no interaction between Chinese and Australian workers.  Mr Hall is angry that he cannot check workplace safety because China has struck a deal with the government.

“Every single worker on that site is a diplomat,” he said. “When (Australian) workers go on that site, we don’t have any rights to inspect.”Mr Hall worries the embassy will not be built to Australian standards and frets that “no one is checking it”.

But a DFAT spokesman said China was required to comply with “Australian occupational health and safety requirements”. “A requirement to comply with ACT building standards, inspections and occupancy certifications has also been agreed,” the spokesman told The Sunday Telegraph.

But the ACT’s building inspector has also been frustrated in his efforts to examine workplace safety drills and it is understood the matter has been referred to the federal agency, Comcare.

Comcare did not reply to questions by deadline.

NOTE:  MIRRORED Story is in BLACK My comments are in Red)

As China and America face leadership transitions in coming weeks, the changes highlight how the Middle Kingdom (read Middle East / Middle Earth / Middle Power / United Nations)  is set to topple the US (read United States Corporation – note they did not say USA – they are going to topple Wall Street and bring on the biggest wall street crash seen in history) as the world’s lone superpower. (United Nations HQ are in America – allows UN to bring in Agenda 21 effortlessly, turning (new world) order out of chaos) in US Nick O’Malley and John Garnaut report.

Late one afternoon in mid-February China’s president-in-waiting, Xi Jinping, stood on the verandah of Sarah Lande’s home on a bluff that rises over the town of Muscatine in Iowa and looked out over the slow flow of the Mississippi River into Indiana.  (Who is Sarah Lande? – she is an knowing or unknowing agent for the UN Agenda 21 Sister Cities Friendship Association Propaganda Spin Machine) 

Over tea, in the rather grand front room of the Landes’ polished Victorian home, Xi told Lande he had dreamt of the Mississippi since reading Mark Twain as a child.  (Agenda 21 captures the rivers using law as wildlife corridors which prohibit human interference – get your water elsewhere sucker!!!)

Being one of the most powerful men on earth, Xi was not the only guest. Lande remembers the Muscatine mayor (knowing or unknowing agent of UN Agenda 21, or Freemason, or Fabian Socialist) , China’s ambassador to the United States and assorted Chinese ministers. There were also 14 men and women whom Lande refers to as the “group of friends” (secret society members such as the Chinese Dragon Mafia) Xi had met when he travelled to the region in 1985 as part of an agricultural exchange (Alabama had xxx acres of agricultural land turned into a reserve – get your food elsewhere suckers!!!  Is that what they’re planning for Muscatine?)

When Fairfax Media (owned & controlled propaganda/spin doctored media empire) visited last month (UN Agent) Lande showed off the group photo taken on her stairs, and standing by the fire place where Xi had stood she explained how he had said: “For me, you are America.”  (UN Agenda 21 plans to get rid of the people – then when there are no more people America ceases to exist).

It is easy to imagine how the pretty rural prosperity of Muscatine might have impressed a Chinese provincial official (at steal at those Real Estate prices – the rich buy up the land, turn it into carbon sinks while disallowing / disincentivising agiculture and making a motza profit) less than a decade after the end of the Cultural Revolution.

“We treated him – what we like to call – ‘Iowa nice’,” Lande explains, referring to a form of hospitality that tends to include warm plain talk, corn and pork (no gmo or vaccinated and hormally treated pork for Xi and his mates?).

Xi might not feel so welcome now, at the end of a long and bitterly fought election (what spin – China does not have elections) campaign in which China has sometimes been used as a cipher (cipher means encrypting text and hidden messages, also numerically stands for zero or no quantity and the numeral three, in numerology defines the three points on a pyramid – an symbol used in the secret societies) for American fears (fear is spin doctored because America has self-mutilated itself) of economic, social and political decline.

In ads and speeches the Republican candidate, Mitt Romney (globalist puppet and Morman read secret society CIA operative), has accused President Barack Obama (Globalist Manchurian Candidate) of being too soft on China (Romney is another war monger) and has vowed to label the Chinese as currency manipulators ”on day one”.  (That may be true but America’s problems began when it allowed the Federal Reserve to set up shop in 1913 – blame the Rothschild banks not China – China was apparently duped into buying mortgage backed securities and has since asked for its money back).

The Obama campaign has portrayed Romney as a vulture capitalist who has enriched himself by exporting American manufacturing jobs to China.  (Romney is part of the problem)

In one anti-Romney ad a worker explains how the new owners of his company instructed staff to remove the American flag.  Allegedly non-partisan independent groups have been on the attack, too.  Ten days ago a group called Citizens Against Government Waste revived a highly controversial ad, which is set in Beijing in the year 2030, in which a professor is lecturing a class on why great nations fail.

”America tried to spend and tax itself out of a great recession,” the professor explains in subtitled Mandarin. ”Of course, we owned most of their debt. So now they work for us.”

The professor titters, the class laughs.  (Its true and its no laughing matter)

In these dying days of the deadlocked election both parties have focused on Ohio, where Obama led by just 1.9 points (perfect for vote rigging) in the Real Clear Politics poll average on Tuesday.

All indications are that again this state could decided which party wins the election. There is also evidence that Obama is still enjoying some advantage among the white male demographic as a result of his bailout of the auto industry.

This week Romney’s campaign attacked on the issue, releasing an ad claiming that the bailout had led to Chrysler – which had been bought out by Fiat – transferring jobs to China.

The ad is not entirely true, as the plant in China is expanding to increase output to feed demand from the burgeoning Chinese middle class. Jobs are not being transferred from the US to China, they are being created in China.

But electoral politics is a killing ground for such nuance, and though the ad has been torn apart by the fact-checkers that have been so much a part of this campaign, the response of Romney’s team has been to ramp up their broadcasting in Ohio. Clearly strategists believe it is working.

Two days after the November 6 election the Chinese Communist Party will begin its own leadership transition at the Great Hall of the People (should be renamed The Great Hall of the Ruling Class). The 18th Party Congress, from November 8 (eight is Chinese auspicious number) to 14, will be immediately followed by the unveiling of the new general secretary, Xi Jinping, and the expected new Premier, Li Keqiang, and their team, on November 15. The personalities and positions that are set in Washington and Beijing will shape the world.

The coincidence of a US and China leadership transition is a once-in-40-year event (the Trilateral Commission will be looking to take advantage from). And it is happening at a historic moment when China is challenging the United States’ position as the world’s sole superpower.

If Xi can keep the ship on course, the Chinese economy may well overtake the United States as the world’s largest economy during his decade-long term. China. Every country in the region is scrambling to exploit, hedge and otherwise adjust its bearings.

”The weight of the world’s economy (especially since Gillard has pledged Australia will help bail out Greece at taxpayer expense) is genuinely moving in our direction,” the Prime Minister, Julia Gillard, said this week, unveiling her new white paper (hiding a dark lie – Fabian Socialists are black wolves in white sheep’s clothing – their insignia) on the Asia Century. ”When we map (UN Agenda 21 is mapping the world into regions within regions devolving control for implementation of Agenda 21 to the local governments masquerading as councils masquerading as Corporate entities) the centre of gravity of global consumption (could we see a Pole Shift?) we see it is shifting east by more than 100 miles a year.”

Inevitably, where economic power goes, strategic and military power follow. The global centre of military fire power is shifting towards this region almost as fast as GDP. Canberra has been at the vanguard of building and reinvigorating a latticework of regional security relationships, anchored in the might of the United States. A year ago Obama chose the Australian Parliament as the venue to announce his foreign policy ”pivot” (read war mongering) to Asia.

”The possibility that we could devolve into a much more confrontational relationship is at one of the highest points than at any time since the opening of relations,” says Bates Gill (an ancronym for Bill Gates), the newly arrived CEO of the US studies centre (an agent for the Trilaterial Commission?) at the University of Sydney, who is also an expert on China security issues.

The Obama administration and the Gillard government have been at pains to avoid naming China as the reason (Fabian Socialists prefer deceit over outright violence).. But others aren’t so reticent.

”Australians view themselves as facing a strategic threat (yes, Australia’s agricultural land is being acquired by the Chinese) – this time from a China that is growing in every way and very fast, and that shows every sign of wanting to expand territorially as well,” the Pentagon consultant Ed Luttwak writes in a new book, The Rise of China vs The Logic of Strategy.

Dennis Richardson, the outgoing secretary of the Department of Foreign Affairs, told his new cadets earlier this year that the rivalry between the two powers would last longer than the Cold War and it would not simply ”evolve so you can tie a ribbon on top”, according to a source in the room. ”The dynamics of the US-China relationship will shape your entire careers,” said Richardson, who has recently moved to run the Department Defence.

The realignment of diplomatic and military power will be more complex and fluid than the Cold War with the Soviets. Growing US-China rivalry is accompanied by growing interdependency (Rothschilds and bankers are back funding both sides,again).

It is no coincidence that Richardson sent two of his top China hands to key American posts. Graeme Fletcher, the former deputy head of mission at the Australian embassy in Beijing, is now the deputy in Washington. The international adviser to former prime minister Kevin Rudd, Scott Dewar, is consul-general in Honolulu, where his job is to liaise with the US Pacific Command as it deploys its six aircraft carrier strike groups, 180 ships and 1500 aircraft across half of the globe.

In June, in Singapore, the US Defence Secretary, Leon Panetta (who admitted to US Congress that he takes his orders from the United Nations), flagged a ”rebalancing” that would see 60 per cent of US naval assets positioned in the Pacific.

And in a fortnight Panetta and the outgoing US Secretary of State, Hillary Clinton (treasonous whore), are scheduled to fly to Perth for the Ausmin (read ANZAC Alliance) strategic dialogue. They are pencilled in to dine with Gillard (Queen of the Fabian Socialists Australian Chapter) on November 14, after discussions with the Foreign Affairs Minister, Bob Carr (treasonous blood sucking bureaucrat), and Defence Minister, Stephen Smith.

Professor Gill says both countries will likely be ”quietly exploring” ways to increase intelligence co-operation, upgrade co-operation in operating space-related assets from Australian soil, and also enhance the capacity to maintain and re-supply American naval vessels.

It is unlikely that they will use the occasion to act on a suggestion in a recent report to the Pentagon that the local deep-water port, HMAS Stirling, will be expanded to accommodate US aircraft carriers.

The Australian ambassador to Beijing, Frances Adamson, said this week that Smith would not be making any surprise announcements about deepening military ties. Mr Smith’s press releases, she said, ”are not necessarily the sorts of things that make you swing into print and write front-page stories” (so read he will be making plans but they’re secret so forget asking about it, if you live in Australia you have no Right to Information, which used to be known as Freedom of Information)..

Not, at least, on the eve of Xi Jinping’s rise to power.

Until the start of this year the consensus among political analysts was that China would have a smooth leadership changeover, any differences safely locked away behind closed doors. This transition, however, is the first in the history of the People’s Republic that has not been orchestrated by the founding fathers of the 1949 revolution (Uhmm… very interesting!!!).

It is shaping as an epic contest at a moment of growing social, economic and political tension and uncertainty. And whereas America’s presidential candidates slog it out in public, with clear and independently (yeah, right, independent … as if!!!) enforced rules, China’s political adversaries face off against each other inside the same tent (read within the Chinese mafia families) and without enforceable ground rules (they make the rules up as they go along).

The Chinese political scandals (NO … no … not in China!?) that have leaked out from the black box this year make Romney’s tax problems look trivial.

They include the highest level attempted defection in 40 years (who attempted to defect, to where, and for what reason?); a murder of an English businessman (by the wife of a Politburo member); a top party official covering up his son’s death in an exploding Ferrari (reportedly with two semi-clad women) and foreign media expose´s that separately found that the families of two of the top leaders controlled billion-dollar fortunes. And then Xi Jinping failed to emerge in public for a fortnight.

”The poor (everyone, altogether now …. aawhh) guy – it’s like Obama four years ago – facing a completely impossible array of challenges,” Professor Geremie Barme, director of the Australian National University’s centre on China in the world, says. ”That’s probably why he took a sickie (a forced holiday under whose hand?) a few weeks ago,” he said, referring to Xi’s two-week disappearance from the public stage, which remains entirely unexplained.

”It is a state of extreme chaos,” said one Beijing political watcher, Li Weidong. ”There is nobody in absolute control.”  (Oh yes there is, we just can’t see them)

While the American contestants are sometimes reacting crudely to the fact of China’s rapidly accumulating power, those in China seem more preoccupied with their own fragility. Chinese leaders have responded by bolstering their personal and collective defences with the strongest, crudest and most dangerous display of nationalism in decades.

Japan has been the target (by CIA ot MI6?) of shrill propaganda and state-sponsored protests, over the Diaoyu/Senkaku Islands, but the spectre of America has been hovering in the background. Chinese politicians and regional security analysts see regional affairs almost entirely through the prism (looking glass = Alice in Wonderland = Crystal Ball) of what they see as the US defending its hegemony against the rising power of China.

That’s why many observers see the dispute ”as a time bomb planted by the US (told you it was the CIA) between China and Japan”, a retired senior Chinese official told foreign reporters in Hong Kong this week. ”That time bomb is now exploding or about to explode.” (read – war is imminent)

If China has emerged as a feature in American politics, then the US is China’s obsession, the measure of the country’s achievement and also the imagined ”enemy” by which it defines itself (the Rothschild bankers want control of China’s currency and banks).

”It has been a constant and strong belief that the US has sinister designs (CIA interference) to sabotage the Communist leadership and turn China into its vassal (impotent) state,” as Wang Jisi, a foreign policy adviser to a former Chinese president, explained in a candid report for the Brookings Institution (implicated in the New World Order conspiracy) earlier this year.

And while the children of the party elite are travelling in droves to study in the United States, the party itself sees the very existence of the US as a challenge to its monopoly on power. Party leaders seem to have even made a pact with each other – like a gang, or a cult (or the mafia) – that they would not succumb to American ideas.

”We have made a solemn declaration,” said China’s low profile second-ranked leader, Wu Bangguo, last year, ”that we will not employ a system of multiple parties holding office in rotation; diversify our guiding thought; separate executive, legislative and judicial powers; use a bicameral or federal system; or carry out privatisation.”

Later in 2011, Obama responded with his ”pivot” speech in Canberra, which outlined all the things that China’s leaders insist that they will resist.

”Certain rights are universal; among them, freedom of speech, freedom of the press, freedom of assembly, freedom of religion, and the freedom of citizens to choose their own leaders,” Obama said (the same Obama who signed into law the NDAA, National Defence Authorisation Act which denies those subjected to it a trial, or to even know what they have been charged with). Within months of the speech the first US Marines arrived in Darwin.

If the 2008 US election was about hope and change then this year’s ambitions are far more modest (read quiet and/or grandiose). Obama is fighting a rear-guard action (actions behind the scenes to impeach him) to protect what change he managed to grind through the recalcitrant Congress he was left with after 2010, when in the midterm elections he was punished for all that he had already done and all that he had failed to do.

Romney, ignoring his own bold record on health reform as governor of Massachusetts, argues that his business experience qualifies him to cut unemployment, deficit and debt. He boasts the ambitions of a bookkeeper. His broad approach to China seems unlikely to diverge much from Obama’s, despite some occasional rhetorical excursions.

In his book No Apology – effectively a job application published two years ago, he quixotically describes how in 2006 the former US ambassador to China Clark Randt jnr told him that many Chinese believe that their nation contains an energy – much the same as an individual does – and that when that energy is blocked the nation becomes ill.

”When foreigners cut off Tibet, Hong Kong and Taiwan, this theory holds the weakened China and prevented it from regaining its past greatness,” Romney writes.

Mostly, however, Romney is re-phrasing Obama policy.

”It is in our best interests to draw China into the circle of responsible nations and, at the same time, to strengthen our capacity to intervene in Asia, if necessary, to prevent China from imposing its will on independent nations,” he writes.

Mitt-Romney

One of Romney’s advisers is Aaron L. Friedberg, (Picture shows Mitt Romney and ?) who served as a national security advisor to then vice-president Dick Cheney (the man at the helm during numerous atrocities) between 2003 and 2005. In September Friedberg, now a Princeton professor of public and international affairs, wrote in the journal Foreign Affairs that the ”responsible stakeholder” policy of integrating China was not working and that China’s at once ”arrogant and insecure” leadership was prompting increased tension in the Pacific and had failed to help America solve its key diplomatic problems, particularly North Korea’s and Iran’s nuclear programs.

Friedberg says China’s leadership is determined to overtake America as the dominant regional power – a situation he says America could not and should not abide. He suggests America should adopt a policy of standing its ground, continuing its engagement with China while increasing its force in the region, specifically by increasing its military investment and deepening its alliances in the region, and by supporting arms purchases (war is good business for the globalists) by those allies.

This sounds like Obama’s ”pivot” announced during an address to the Australian Parliament, which Friedberg dismisses as a largely symbolic (read real) transfer of existing forces. It is perhaps a pivot, but with more teeth.

This heavily contested American election may not change the world (how can it when both Obama and Romney are globalist puppets) but the ”selection” in China, in contrast, where there is only one party – the possibilities seem wide open.  (expect another False Flag?)

Xi’s treatment of the US will, to a large extent, define the China that he rules for the coming decade. The relationship will shape the world.

On the banks of the Mississippi they reckon that Xi is not a man who pits himself against America.

After his recent visit to Muscatine The New York Times noted dryly that it constituted something of a propaganda coup, a ”tightly choreographed moment” intended to demonstrate his deep connection with the American heartland.

Well, perhaps. But Mrs Lande does not doubt Xi’s sincerity.

”When he walked in the door, the smile the greeting, the handshake, it was so warm,” she said. ”We could see he was so happy to see us. It jumped out of him.”  (Good actor)
