Hello & Welcome.
Let me introduce myself. I am Frank James Monte, a long Divorced, straight, non-smoker, non-gambler, non-drug-user, sole Parent, Catholic, Ex-Cop, Ex-Private eye, Aussie senior citizen and I’m the Convener and the 1st active member of this, AUSTRALIAN CRUSADERS PARTY. No, we're not Uber-Nationalist, Nazis or Extremists, but we strive to maintain our values as depicted above and hereunder. We believe in Pride not Racism.
If you disagree with our Aims or My stances, no worries!
I'm not here to convince you! Be well. Move on.
'The AUSTRALIAN CRUSADERS PARTY does not have much of a record as it was created in November 2016. It's not affiliated with any other party. I call it Centre Right, not Far Right, we're not trying to change Aussies we're trying to STOP other people changing us! But I've been around for a few lifetimes already, if you've heard of me you'll agree there's not much I haven't done, or places I haven't been to. So I can only base the character of the ACP on my life and beliefs for now. Once the ACP forms itself and enlists many identities who hopefully will stand for several seats, then we'll review the site and diminish my role.
The dozens of pictures through these pages with VIPs, Politicians and Movie stars, are not an ego trip, I've been to many places and met many notable persons, many of whom were or are clients that is a way of showing this life experience photographically. I can deal with the Biggest and the meanest or talk to mums & dads as I am one myself.
As they say, ' This ain't my 1st Rodeo!'
My History; I'm a Naturalized Australian Citizen, born of Italian parents in a Catholic environment. A licensed Private Investigator for over 50 years, at Sydney University after school, then a NSW Kings Cross Cop, a Justice of the Peace. at 22 years of age. I opened and taught the 1st Aussie Private Detective School in 1971 to 2000, a sole parent to my two sons, a Published Author, Script Writer and now an Independent LA Film Producer & Director. I'n also a licensed Californian Private Investigator with the ability to work in 11 US States, The UK and many other places. I am indeed the Grandfather of the Industry.
As a Private Investigator for half a century, I've worked on thousands of cases here and all over the world. There is no doubt that I am one of the best, oldest and certainly the Most Famous Private Investigator Globally.
Many PIs , Police Officers and reporters are/ were jealous and incredulous of my successes in the 1970's and 1980's, but they'll never get the chance to replicate my opportunities or get paid the $millions, as I had in the 70's, 80's, and 90', and thus mock what they cannot ever fathom as possible in their parochial minds.
Bless them, had they been any smarter I would not have such an easy climb to the top and success.
So be it a PI , Cop or local journo they sneer, mock and deride, saying who'd hire an Aussie PI ?
The Answer my friends is; The Whole World did !
Unfortunately the only negative & false press amongst my 4500 press articles, comes out of Australia's Fairfax Ltd. Australians truly suffer from the Tall poppy syndrome, so beware if you stand out or buy a flashy car or tie!

Early History; As a kid I was brought up in an Army Compound in Alexandria, Egypt run by the British Occupational Forces of the Suez, where my 7 Italian aunts, who had all married British Army officers, [ they weren't stupid!] lived with their Generals & Colonel husbands. Through them, I learnt discipline, English, [in Italian School I was taught, French, Italian and Arabic,] strong moral codes, beliefs and respect for proper authority.
Then the Suez Canal War erupted and my small world changed forever. We left everything behind as we scattered for ships in the harbour going to Italy. We lived for a time in a refugee camp in Genova [Genoa] before leaving on a 6 weeks sea journey to Sydney. We were not 'assisted' Migrants like many Brits. Our ship the 'Sydney' carried hundreds of normal Christian European families: French, Italian, Germans, British, Poles and Hungarians. All who sought to work and live in the fresh Australian dream, and to integrate and assimilate. I've written a lot about my life in the book printed twice called 'The Spying Game'.
I've said all the above to show that I'm aware of tragic reasons for good persons becoming refugees or displaced by war, conflict or famine, through no fault of their own. Such was our plight BUT we were documented, welcomed, integrated and went to work ASAP. I was 12, and went to a Nuns' school at St Mary's. on the outskirts of Sydney. Father worked at 3M at St Mary's also. Mum worked miles away in town at Mark Foy's then the Super store. I was shocked at 1st, as it was it was a Catholic nun who first nastily referred to me as a Wog! I'd hear that over and over again as well as 'Dago'. Funny that the day I became a NSW cop with a gun on my hip, it stopped? It bothered me, but at least I knew who not to spend time with? Most of our friends went to work on the Snowy River Hydro Electric Scheme, others to Albury-Wodonga to live in makeshift migrant camps. We'd never heard of Social Benefits Payments. No one had.
Immigration; Most of what I've said above should show anybody I know what being an Immigrant and refugee is all about! There has to be a strong need for us to allow many people into Australia who may not all be genuine or Political refugees. We simply lack the services or wealth to accommodate and care for everyone. Do we wish to become another South East Asian backwater full of cheap labour and shoddy goods? NO!
Many Immigrants just want our piece of our pie, others are criminally bent and some just want to marry an Aussie and get pregnant?
Let's Stop, Look and Listen for a while whilst the world stops this mad violent, anti-Christian merry go-round. They're bashing at the door, don't just open it with a welcoming smile, barricade it and look after our Children, elderly, homeless, sick and veterans first. The rest of Humanity are NOT our responsibility, regardless what Barack Obama and Malcolm Turnbull would have you believe, they're both Socialists and grieve for power in the UN. The ex-boat people or now 'refugees', try all the tricks, like sabotaging their boats when they saw our Navy Patrol ships arriving or attempting suicide. Naturally our Fair-Go naïve, Good intentioned, Aussie Government staff and Armed Forces fall for it, feeling pity!
Don't buy into their misery, don't let them contaminate us with it.
Don't just be Politically Correct do goodders like our Power Crazy, Aimless Politicians.
