White Privilege Update By Tom North

     If you were doing an Arts/social science course at one of our cultural Marxist Australian universities, I think it would be that part of the day, where you put on sack cloth and ashes, feel very guilty and check your white privilege:  https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=KVyOE4vaU30 

     Oh, that was “their” ABC pumpimping (a new word I invented) out propaganda for children on white privilege. Ok, Leftoid. Let’s close down the ABC, sell of all of its equipment and give the money to the poorest people in the world. Then we start on the university academics, call them out, sell off their goodies, and channel their salary and super in the same direction. Would they still be squawking? Bring on the zombie apocalypse, anything to just end this!! Wait… we still have Mark Dice on YouTube so all hope is not lost. Just hearing his Christian guy smash the loopy liberals helps my psycho-political neurosis.  https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=BDtLi5N51_w

Total Data Collection By Brian Simpson

     Hands up those who think that Google et al., are not on the road to world conquest and domination, much like the villains in the old 007 movies with Sean Connery and Roger Moore?  http://www.breitbart.com/tech/2018/05/17/masters-of-the-universe-leaked-video-shows-googles-vision-of-total-data-collection/    https://www.theverge.com/2018/5/17/17344250/google-x-selfish-ledger-video-data-privacy

“Google has built a multibillion-dollar business out of knowing everything about its users. Now, a video produced within Google and obtained by The Verge offers a stunningly ambitious and unsettling look at how some at the company envision using that information in the future. The video was made in late 2016 by Nick Foster, the head of design at X (formerly Google X) and a co-founder of the Near Future Laboratory. The video, shared internally within Google, imagines a future of total data collection, where Google helps nudge users into alignment with their goals, custom-prints personalized devices to collect more data, and even guides the behavior of entire populations to solve global problems like poverty and disease. When reached for comment on the video, an X spokesperson provided the following statement to The Verge: “We understand if this is disturbing -- it is designed to be. This is a thought-experiment by the Design team from years ago that uses a technique known as ‘speculative design’ to explore uncomfortable ideas and concepts in order to provoke discussion and debate. It’s not related to any current or future products.”

The Left Defends the Most Vicious Gangs on Earth By Charles Taylor

     Let us catch this one before, like most pollution, it just disappears into the environment, making the world a wee bit more toxic:  http://www.breitbart.com/big-journalism/2018/05/17/journalists-admit-trump-called-ms-13-animals-still-declare-label-racist/   http://www.breitbart.com/big-hollywood/2018/05/17/celebrities-freak-after-trump-calls-ms-13-gangsters-animals/    http://www.breitbart.com/big-government/2018/05/17/nancy-pelosi-on-trump-calling-ms-13-gang-members-animals-does-he-not-believe-in-the-spark-of-divinity/    http://www.breitbart.com/video/2018/05/17/tucker-carlson/

“Left-wing journalists conceded on Thursday that President Donald Trump had referred to MS-13, not immigrants in general, as “animals,” but still argued that Trump was racist — or that he was to blame for their own failures to provide accurate context.” Well, what has this violent Latino gang got up to that the left are defending, remembering that much of the left still defends the communist revolution?

Letter to The Editor - There is a long and profound tradition of friendship and mutual understanding between enlightened individuals within all three of the Abrahamic faiths

To The Australian          Jennifer Oriel's spirited defence of religious freedom ('Christianity empowers our Western tradition', 21/5) is vitiated a little by her forgetfulness of past violence carried out by Christian religious fanatics and by her misinterpretation of extracts from the Qu'ran. Surah 8:12 does not, as she claims, 'prescribe violent monotheism.' It is a symbolic (not literal) reference to the battle of Badr (a single historical event). As for Surah 5:51, this gives a valid warning (for Muslims) against a danger in befriending Christians or Jews because each group, naturally enough, is characteristically biased in favour of its own members - something that can be seen in many contexts today. There is a long and profound tradition of friendship and mutual understanding between enlightened individuals within all three of the Abrahamic faiths, and between such individuals and corresponding persons in the Eastern sacred traditions. In recent times this has been apparent, especially, in the writings of the 'perennialists' - Rene Guenon, Ananda Coomaraswamy and their associates. In this context anti-Muslim prejudice looks small and mean.  Nigel Jackson, Belgrave, Vic

Chinese Mass Indoctrination Camps: Coming to a Quiet Suburb Near You? By James Reed

     This item tells of the creation of Chinese mass indoctrination camps in the US. First, one needs to know what an “indoctrination camp” actually is. Here is the good old New York Post to enlighten us:  https://nypost.com/2018/05/17/inside-chinas-new-mass-indoctrination-camps/ 

“Hour upon hour, day upon day, Omir Bekali and other detainees in far western China’s new indoctrination camps had to disavow their Islamic beliefs, criticize themselves and their loved ones and give thanks to the ruling Communist Party. When Bekali, a Kazakh Muslim, refused to follow orders each day, he was forced to stand at a wall for five hours at a time. A week later, he was sent to solitary confinement, where he was deprived of food for 24 hours. After 20 days in the heavily guarded camp, he wanted to kill himself. Chinese authorities in the heavily Muslim region of Xinjiang have ensnared tens, possibly hundreds of thousands of Muslim Chinese – even foreign citizens – in mass internment camps.

European Sex Crime Update By Richard Miller

     Sex crimes in Europe have become as common as popular sports, perhaps. But, to take one example, say Finland, a place that we don’t hear too much about, who is committing these crimes?  https://gellerreport.com/2018/05/sex-finland-migrants.html/   https://voiceofeurope.com/2018/05/93-of-migrant-sex-crimes-in-finland-are-committed-by-migrants-from-islamic-countries-study/    https://www.alandsnyheter.com/wp-content/uploads/2018/05/Polamk_rap129_verkko.pdf 

“An investigation into Finland’s police data by the country’s police academy, shows that 131 Finnish citizens became victims of sex crimes committed by asylum seekers in the year 2016. A total of 1052 asylum seekers were suspected of crimes in 2016 and virtually all were men, who together represented 29 nations. Two thirds were Iraqis and the age of the suspects was evenly distributed. Finnish women were victims in 8 out of 10 cases committed by mostly Muslim asylum seekers: 108 out of 116 suspects of sexual offenses came from Islamic countries like Iraq (83), Afghanistan (14) or Morocco (6). Almost half of sexual offenses were committed against Finnish girls under the age of 18 of which some were seeking men to access tobacco and drugs, the study says. Among the sexual offenses that asylum seekers were suspected of rape is the most common, with 32% of the reports. Almost one in 7 cases, or 16%, were about was gang rape and another 16% of the reports were for sexual harassment. 3 out of 5 sexual assault with asylum seekers as suspected offenders occurred in public places, 1 in 5 in private homes, 1 in 10 at refugee centres and 1 in 4 in unknown places.”

Bitcoins Bites too Hard, Dies By James Reed

     Mike Adams was issuing a lot of warnings about Bitcoin a few month’s ago, or was it longer? Things have gone a bit quiet on the Bitcoin doomsday front. Until now:  https://www.livescience.com/62582-bitcoin-energy-how-much.html?utm_source=ls-newsletter&utm_medium=email&utm_campaign=20180518-ls   https://www.cell.com/joule/fulltext/S2542-4351(18)30177-6 

“This paper has outlined various methods that are currently used in determining the current and future electricity consumption of the Bitcoin network. These methods tell us that the Bitcoin network consumes at least 2.55 GW of electricity currently, and that it could reach a consumption of 7.67 GW in the future, making it comparable with countries such as Ireland (3.1 GW) and Austria (8.2 GW). Additionally, economic models tell us that Bitcoin’s electricity consumption will gravitate toward the latter figure. A look at Bitcoin miner production estimates suggests that this figure could already be reached in 2018. With the Bitcoin network processing just 200,000 transactions per day, this means that the average electricity consumed per transaction equals at least 300 kWh, and could exceed 900 kWh per transaction by the end of 2018. The Bitcoin development community is experimenting with solutions such as the Lightning Network to improve the throughput of the network, which may alleviate the situation. For now, however, Bitcoin has a big problem, and it is growing fast.”

All the Vibrancy of the Royal Wedding By Peter West

     I imagine that there may be one or two peole who feel a little uncomfortable about the choice of partner that Prince Harry made: Meghan Markle, a 36-year old divorced multiracial actress. And, they married on the same date that Henry VIII had Anne Boleyn’s head chopped off, surely a good omen:  https://www.livescience.com/62612-royal-wedding-boleyn-beheading.html#?utm_source=ls-newsletter&utm_medium=email&utm_campaign=05202018-ls 

     This is a wedding which the Queen approved, perhaps because she had no choice. As the establishment papers have been pouring out, this brings Britain into the 21st century. Welcome to their world, not your world, or that of your ancestors, which is being quickly dismantled in the New World Order, or is it Disorder. Yes, accepting mass immigration which has transformed many British cities into non-white majority enclaves, is not enough, for every institution must be deconstructed. Expect some future Royal wedding to push the agenda further with the first gay marriage. Then transgender, then whatever the elites are pushing next. What about a Muslim Royal? Why Not? It would be racist not to, surely?  https://edition.cnn.com/2018/05/19/europe/royal-wedding-meghan-markle-prince-harry-intl/index.html

Another Gem for the Gun Banners By Charles Taylor

     Yes, another shooting here in  the US. It was getting near the time when one would expect the Deep State to either rollout another psy-ops, or alternatively, for some kid on Big Pharma meds, to flip a switch and go mad:  https://www.cbsnews.com/news/santa-fe-high-school-shooting-suspect-idd-as-dimitrios-pagourtzis-live-updates-today-2018-5-18/

“The suspect in a Friday’s deadly Texas high school shooting has been identified as 17-year-old Dimitrios Pagourtzis. Texas Gov. Greg Abbott said 10 people were killed and 10 others wounded in the shooting Friday morning at Santa Fe High School south of Houston. The suspected shooter, who was in custody, also had explosive devices, including a molotov cocktail, that were found in the school and nearby, said Gov. Greg Abbott, who called the assault “one of the most heinous attacks that we’ve ever seen in the history of Texas schools.” Police found pressure cookers and pipe bombs around the school, one law enforcement source told CBS News.

Oh, What a Tangled Web They Weave By Chris Knight

     It is hard to keep up with the “Russia stole the US election” nonsense. The issue at the moment seems to be that there really was an FBI/CIA/M16 spy-op, but this was directed towards the Trump campaign, not Hillary Clinton:  https://www.zerohedge.com/news/2018-05-19/fbi-spy-op-exposed-trump-campaign-infiltrated-longtime-cia-and-mi6-asset   https://www.naturalnews.com/2018-05-19-deep-state-leak-to-ny-times-is-admission-that-obama-regime-spied-on-trump-campaign.html 

“Following two weeks of mounting speculation over the FBI’s so-called “mole” inside the Trump campaign, the New York Times and Washington Post published separate accounts on Friday detailing the infiltration of the Trump campaign - a scheme revealed in a Wednesday report by the New York Times in which “at least one government informant met several times with Mr. Page and Mr. Papadopoulos.” The Wednesday report also disclosed the existence of “Operation Crossfire Hurricane” - the FBI’s code name for their early Trump-Russia investigation. Thanks to Friday’s carefully crafted deep-state disclosures by WaPo and the Times, along with actual reporting by the Daily Caller’s Chuck Ross, we now know it wasn’t a mole at all - but 73-year-old University of Cambridge professor Stefan Halper, a US citizen, political veteran and longtime US Intelligence asset enlisted by the FBI to befriend and spy on three members of the Trump campaign during the 2016 US election.

Killing Everybody to Make the Economy Strong! By James Reed

     Shamefully, a conspiracy, tin foil hat guy like me did not go the final step and think of this one, which just shows how limited my intellect is. Never mind. Here is Mike Adam’s depopulation hypothesis, which I reproduce because Mike is a great guy that likes to spread the word. At first, I thought that the idea that governments just want us all to die was wrong because there was the agenda of white genocide and all that. But, probably he is right, for it just makes economic sense, in the black magic world of conventional economics, for everybody, sans the super-class, to just die to keep their system going:  http://www.collapse.news/2018-05-18-why-governments-are-pursuing-depopulation-to-save-themselves-from-financial-collapse.html

“Ever wonder why governments allow so much deadly pollution to be dumped into food, water and soils? Part of the real reason may surprise you: Governments no longer want people to live long enough to collect entitlement benefits, and allowing the contamination of everything with death-inducing substances actually saves governments money by accelerating the death of citizens. This is all covered in my video, below. Here’s a brief introduction: Three generations ago, governments wanted more people to run the factories, settle rural lands and generate economic productivity that could be siphoned off by the political elite. Over time, continued promises of entitlements such as social security, Medicare, pensions and welfare payouts caused large populations to become financial burdens to the sustainability of those same governments.

Now, Can I Remember Where I Put the Dark Chocolate? By Mrs Vera West

     Continuing our health and fitness series, with a focus on the older citizen, chocolate has been reported to have numerous cardio-vascular benefits, but now it has been found that chocolate actually helps relieves stress and improves memory:  https://www.naturalnews.com/2018-05-19-dark-chocolate-reduces-stress-while-improving-memory.html   https://www.sciencedaily.com/releases/2018/04/180424133628.htm

“New research shows there might be health benefits to eating certain types of dark chocolate. Findings from two studies being presented today at the Experimental Biology 2018 annual meeting in San Diego show that consuming dark chocolate that has a high concentration of cacao (minimally 70% cacao, 30% organic cane sugar) has positive effects on stress levels, inflammation, mood, memory and immunity. While it is well known that cacao is a major source of flavonoids, this is the first time the effect has been studied in human subjects to determine how it can support cognitive, endocrine and cardiovascular health. Lee S. Berk, DrPH, associate dean of research affairs, School of Allied Health Professions and a researcher in psychoneuroimmunology and food science from Loma Linda University, served as principal investigator on both studies.

Come and Take it! By John Steele

Suicide of the West 2.0 By Chris Knight

     When I think of the book title, Suicide of the West, I think of the 1964 book by James Burnham, with the subtitle: An Essay on the Meaning and Destiny of Liberalism. This book anticipated the cultural wars that were to come because Burnham saw that liberalism was the acid eroding Western civilisation, and the real cause of Western “suicide.” The new book by Jonah Goldberg, Suicide of the West: How the Rebirth of Tribalism, Populism, Nationalism, and Identity Politics is Destroying American Democracy (2018), predictably enough, argues the opposite from Burnham, namely that the nationalist/populist departure form liberal cosmopolitanism is contrary to the Enlightenment project, and contrary to the spirit of American democracy, which apparently is endless openness to migrants and multiculturalism.

     National identity is opposed, except of course for Israel, and opposing open borders and immigration is also rejected, as that is nationalism, and populism, except for Israel. Of course, as I see it, Israel should be free to protect its borders as it sees fit, because it has a right to exist,  but so should every one. Here is Goldberg on the splendours of immigration: “I tend to believe that high levels of immigration, particularly skills-based immigration, are economically desirable policies. Also, the evidence that low-skilled immigration is a net detriment to the country is not as cut-and-dried as some claim. (The field of economics that studies immigration is shot through with methodological and ideological problems.)” The claim that there are no reliable studies showing the negative impact of immigration on the poorest locals, is nonsense, and contrary anway to direct observation and experience. The problem is with the studies of the alleged economic benefits of immigration, studies which are usually biased and ignoring negative effects.

The Rich Get Richer … and the Rest Just Drown! By James Reed

     I am sure that the same result would hold true for Australia, but the US middle class and others are slowing sinking under the economic waves, soon to drown all:  https://www.axios.com/americans-who-cant-afford-middle-class-basics-united-way-5da1e2e6-046b-4a53-9a11-1106a77564ef.html?utm_source=twitter&utm_medium=twsocialshare&utm_campaign=organic

“At a time of rock-bottom joblessness, high corporate profits and a booming stock market, more than 40% of U.S. households cannot pay the basics of a middle-class lifestyle — rent, transportation, child care and a cellphone, according to a new study. Quick take: The study, conducted by United Way, found a wide band of working U.S. households that live above the official poverty line, but below the cost of paying ordinary expenses. Based on 2016 data, there were 34.7 million households in that group — double the 16.1 million that are in actual poverty, project director Stephanie Hoopes tells Axios. Why it matters: For two years, U.S. politics has been dominated by the anger and resentment of a self-identified “forgotten” class, some left behind economically and others threatened by changes to their way of life.

Winter Flu: Why? Climate Change: What! By Brian Simpson

     I noticed even as a child that wet winters brought colds and flu s, but when the summer came, the threat was much less. Some people thought that this was due to the temperature, but my guess was always based on the moisture content of the air being a more suitable environment for the germs to survive and thrive and generally lower temperatures. That view seems to be correct:  https://www.naturalnews.com/2018-05-16-science-explains-why-we-are-more-vulnerable-to-getting-sick-when-the-seasons-change.html 

“People are more vulnerable to getting sick when seasons change, especially during spring and fall, and experts may now know why. According to research, it’s not the cold air that makes people sick; rather, it’s the virus. Rhinoviruses and coronaviruses, the two main causes of the common cold, can multiply quickly when the weather is cool – but not too cold. “A lot of the viruses that cause the common cold are shown to cause outbreaks more frequently in the early to late spring and early to late fall,” explained Dr. Kittu Jindal Garg, an internal medicine specialist, in an interview with The Weather Channel. In the same way, the influenza virus multiplies and spread more easily and rapidly when the air is cold and dry. As a result, people tend to catch the flu during winter.

Now Aliens are going to Destroy Us because of Global Warming! What! By James Reed

     This is one of those stories where you can’t trust secondary sources and “professional” (not really) journalists like me go right to the primary source to check. Yep, its true: out there in university land there are scientists who think that extraterrestrial aliens may destroy us because global warming indicates that we are a destructive species, and thus a cosmic pest:  https://www.theguardian.com/science/2011/aug/18/aliens-destroy-humanity-protect-civilisations 

“It may not rank as the most compelling reason to curb greenhouse gases, but reducing our emissions might just save humanity from a pre-emptive alien attack, scientists claim. Watching from afar, extraterrestrial beings might view changes in Earth’s atmosphere as symptomatic of a civilisation growing out of control – and take drastic action to keep us from becoming a more serious threat, the researchers explain. This highly speculative scenario is one of several described by a Nasa-affiliated scientist and colleagues at Pennsylvania State University that, while considered unlikely, they say could play out were humans and alien life to make contact at some point in the future. Shawn Domagal-Goldman of Nasa’s Planetary Science Division and his colleagues compiled a list of plausible outcomes that could unfold in the aftermath of a close encounter, to help humanity “prepare for actual contact”.

“Mr Macron’s plans are seemingly at odds with EU boss Jean-Claude Juncker who admit there is no future in the “United States of Europe” vision being chased by the Frenchman. Before accepting his prize, Mr Macron wrote on Twitter: “The European dream is now gnawed by doubt. “It’s up to us to decide whether we want to live it or let it die.”

Have a Cuppa and a Laugh! By James Reed

     This YouTube clip is very interesting, but the comments underneath are gut-bustingly funny. Police try to break down a door, but fail. Everything they tried (no explosives) fail. The comments speculate about what happens next; the crook inside dies of old age; or changes his ways becomes a cop and comes to help break down his own door; the door is unlocked and opens out; there is a wall behind a false door and so on. There are certainly some amusing things on YouTube, making it an escape almost as good as getting blind drunk. In fact, getting blind drunk, then surfing YouTube may be the best thing of all. Ok Vera, you can eat chocolate whilst surfing and drinking, not that you see any benefits to alcohol.   https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=FNRJGbZNvVQ

The Heart of Chocolate By Mrs Vera West

     Dark chocolate is being increasingly seen as a healthy food in limited quantities, with beneficial effects upon the heart:  https://www.naturalnews.com/2018-05-14-eat-more-dark-chocolate-to-resolve-irregular-heartbeats.html

“A study published in the journal Heart has found that eating moderate amounts of chocolate can reduce the risk of developing atrial fibrillation (AFib), a life-threatening form of irregular heartbeat. Scientists at the Beth Israel Deaconess Medical Center, together with the Harvard T.H. Chan School of Public Health, Aalborg University, and the Danish Cancer Society‘s Institute of Cancer Epidemiology used data from a large-scale cohort study of men and women in Denmark for their research. “Our study adds to the accumulating evidence of the health benefits of moderate chocolate intake and highlights the importance of behavioral factors for potentially lowering the risk of arrhythmias,” added Dr. Elizabeth Mostofsky, the study’s lead author and an instructor in the Department of Epidemiology at Harvard T. H. Chan School of Public Health."
