The Day the Earth Moved by Viv Forbes

     The proposed Adani mine has been wading through a green swamp of political obstacles for nine long years. Other coal optimists have struggled to develop coal in the Galilee Basin for over 40 years. Federal Labor, State Labor and the Greens have taken turns to man the anti-coal barricades. In these bad new days, before anyone can open a mine they need multiple approvals, each one providing opportunities for do-nothing activists to raise new hurdles at every hearing. The whole process of judicial judgements and reviews, enquiries, objections, hearings and re-hearings has been a gold mine for lawyers and barristers and a bottomless pit into which mine optimists throw money. Nine years ago, Labor Premier Anna Bligh declared Adani “a significant project for Queensland”. The Queensland Co-ordinator General gave Adani approval to proceed in 2014.

     The Federal Government also gave its approval to proceed in 2014 but that approval was set aside because of complaints by the Mackay Conservation Council, the Australian Conservation Foundation and others that the yakka skink, the ornamental snake, koalas, the waxy cabbage palm and the black throated finch would be disturbed. And of course the Great Barrier Reef, the coastal seagrass and inland ground water would be threatened. The ACF and the Greens have also cowed most Australian banks into denying finance to the Carmichael Project. Native title rights have been asserted by two groups, and Greenpeace and the Climate Council have run scare campaigns on Greenhouse gas emissions should Adani go ahead. Naturally the ABC gives all Adani opponents good air time.

Ethnicity and UK Knife Crimes By Richard Miller

     The UK seems to be the knife crime capital of the world, with there being 100 fatal stabbings so far this year.
  https://www.breitbart.com/europe/2019/05/19/knife-crime-epidemic-100-fatal-stabbings-so-far-this-year/

“In the breakdown of figures, 83 out of the 100 fatal stabbing victims were male and 17 were female. Almost half of the victims were under 30 and the primary age range for victims was between just 20 and 29 years of age. Figures reported in April showed that 73 per cent of offenders and 53 percent of victims of knife crime were of a black or minority ethnic (BAME) background, and that two-thirds of all knife crime in London was carried out by people under 25.”

The Amazing Journey of a Plastic Bag By James Reed

     Hollywood makes movies about fish, so why not plastic bags? I can see no reason, especially since plastic has now made it to the deepest parts of the ocean, no mean achievement for the human races’ ingenuity.
  https://www.bbc.com/news/science-environment-48230157

“An American explorer has found plastic waste on the seafloor while breaking the record for the deepest ever dive. Victor Vescovo descended nearly 11km (seven miles) to the deepest place in the ocean - the Pacific Ocean's Mariana Trench. He spent four hours exploring the bottom of the trench in his submersible, built to withstand the immense pressure of the deep. He found sea creatures, but also found a plastic bag and sweet wrappers. It is the third time humans have reached the ocean's extreme depths.”

From the British Empire to a Playground of Child Sexual Abuse By Richard Miller

     The death of the West is a miserable affair, being not with a quick nuclear bang (yet, but the US neo-conmen are working on that one), but by the death of a thousand, or is that one million cuts? That is the number of British white children subjected to sexual slavery in heir own country by paedophilic rape gangs, but those objecting to this are hit with the full measure of the law, while for decades the police did nothing due to political correctness, as even mainstream media have stated:

If Foetuses Can’t’ Feel Pain, Can Leftists? By Chris Knight

     With some US states having banned abortion, it is only natural that the objective scientists will come out to tell us that the foetus does not feel pain, and doesn’t have a heartbeat, and in fact wants to be aborted, I guess.
  https://www.livescience.com/54774-fetal-pain-anesthesia.html?utm_source=ls-newsletter&utm_medium=email&utm_campaign=20190518-ls

“Utah recently passed a law that requires doctors to give anesthesia to a fetus prior to performing an abortion that occurs at 20 weeks of gestation or later. The law assumes that a fetus may be able to feel pain at that stage in development; however, doctors groups and other critics of the law argue that a fetus cannot feel pain at 20 weeks gestational age. Indeed, the American College of Obstetricians and Gynecologists (ACOG) said it considers the case to be closed as to whether a fetus can feel pain at that stage in development.”

More Amazing than the Amazing Spider-Man! By Brian Simpson

     This is pretty amazing, far better to think about than all that superhero nonsense pushed in the media, as the real superheroes, or just plain “supers” are spiders that can use their webs better than Spider-Man:
  https://www.livescience.com/65491-spider-web-slingshot.html?utm_source=ls-newsletter&utm_medium=email&utm_campaign=20190518-ls
  https://www.naturalnews.com/2019-05-18-spider-species-discovered-to-use-catapult-technology-to-fling-sticky-webs-at-prey.html

“Does the idea of a spider using its web to catapult itself at high speeds give you the willies? Then be forewarned: the triangle weaver spider (Hyptiotes cavatus) does just that. Which makes it the only known creature, besides humans, to employ a strategy known as "external power amplification, a new study finds. The concept of external power amplification is simple. Basically, an animal uses an external device (in this case, the spider's web) to store energy, like a person storing energy in a bow with a pulled-back arrow. Once the energy is released, the spider is flung forward like a slingshot, greatly exceeding the speeds at which the arachnid could otherwise travel. This crafty trick helps the spider survive. The triangle weaver spider doesn't have venom, so it uses this slingshot method to help it swiftly catch prey that land on its web, the researchers said. To study the critter, the scientists collected wild triangle weaver spiders, which are native to the United States and Canada, and brought them to the lab, where the spiders were housed in terrariums and filmed with high-speed videos as they hunted prey. The videos revealed that after the spider builds a triangular web, it retreats to the web's corner, where the long lines of its web join together. Then it takes the web's anchor line, the main strand that connects the web to something stable, like a branch, and cuts the line in two. Then, the spider does its trick: it uses its body to bridge the now-loose, cut strand of web. It holds the far end (the end closest to the branch) with its hind legs and the front end with its front legs. Next, the spider walks backward "in a 'leg-over-leg' motion, pulling the web taut," the researchers wrote in the study.

What! Sweden is Not Dead Yet? How About Now? By Richard Miller

     Sweden is so cucked that even other cucked Scandinavian nations make fun of it; if Sweden was a planet, then politically correct pieces of cuck would start to orbit it. Now, surprise, surprise, Sweden has another looming immigration crisis. I do not know how, since Sweden does everything possible to abolish itself, so how could infinity migrants be anything other than a joy?

  https://www.breitbart.com/europe/2019/05/18/swedish-municipalities-head-chain-migration-causing-new-migrant-crisis/

“The chairman of SKL, which represents Sweden’s municipalities and county councils, has warned the country could be facing a new migrant crisis due to so-called “family reunifications” — chain migration — saying the influx could rival 2015. Anders Knape warned that the Swedish municipalities may not be able to handle the costs of so many new migrants taking residency in Sweden as part of the family reunification programme, and, according to a report in the newspaper Aftonbladet, said, “[Sweden is] facing the second wave of refugee reception, the family migration. As we don’t know how big it gets. It can be extremely powerful and mean that we are approaching the figures we experienced in 2015 and 2016.”

Naturally the ABC gives all Adani opponents good air time. Just 5 months ago the anti-Adani Deputy Premier of Queensland, Jacki Trad, said she did not believe the Adani project would ever get off the ground. But immediately after the recent Federal election landslide which left the ALP holding no federal seats north of Brisbane, and winning only one of the six senate vacancies, Queensland Premier Palaszczuk flew north to Mackay and demanded that her departments produce firm timeline for Adani decisions “by Friday” (today).  What a difference a day makes.

Wow, Inequality Undermines Democracy By Richards Miller

     Who would have thought this, that increasing inequality would undermine democracy, whatever that means now:
  https://www.bbc.com/news/education-48229037

“Widening inequalities in pay, health and opportunities in the UK are undermining trust in democracy, says an Institute for Fiscal Studies report. The think tank warns of runaway incomes for high earners but rises in "deaths of despair", such as from addiction and suicide, among the poorest. It warns of risks to "centre-ground" politics from stagnating pay and divides in health and education. The report says such widening gaps are "making a mockery of democracy". The Institute for Fiscal Studies (IFS), one of the country's leading research institutes, is launching what it says is the UK's biggest analysis of inequality. That will be chaired by Nobel Prize-winning economist Prof Sir Angus Deaton. He said "people were troubled by inequality" more than at any time since the 1940s - and the impact was so serious that it suggested "democratic capitalism is broken".

The Roundup on Roundup By Mrs Vera West

     I once knew a farmer who said that Roundup was so safe that one could drink it! However, he is not around today, having died a few years back from cancer, which I am sure had nothing to do with his drinking habits!
  https://www.naturalnews.com/2019-05-14-monsanto-bayer-faces-financial-annihilation-after-third-court-loss-glyphosate.html

“Now, a third court case has ruled that Monsanto’s toxic weed killer caused cancer among those who used it. In this case, a California jury has returned an astonishing $2 billion award for the plaintiffs who say Roundup caused their cancers. “Bayer AG was ordered to pay more than $2 billion in damages to a California couple that claimed they got cancer as a result of using its Roundup weedkiller for about three decades,” reports Bloomberg.com. It’s one of the largest jury awards ever recorded in the history of humanity, and it shows that Bayer is now facing “financial annihilation” because there are over 13,000 additional lawsuits pending. If 10,000 lawsuits each result in a jury award of just $100 million — the low side of awards so far — this would cost Bayer $1 trillion, plunging the evil corporation into financial ruin. Since acquiring Monsanto, Bayer’s share price has plunged more than 40 percent, meaning the chemical giant has already lost tens of billions of dollars in market capitalization. Since Bayer inherited all of Monsanto’s liabilities when it acquired the company — and because Roundup has been in use by the public for over three decades — Bayer could face at least another decade of lawsuits that add up to multiple trillions of dollars in damages.”

Get Used To it Whitey! By Chris Knight

     With the fast approaching non-white majority, it is only natural that white privilege will be subjected to a radical deconstruction:
  https://www.breitbart.com/politics/2019/05/13/democrats-displace-u-s-kids-to-aid-economic-migrants/

“The Democratic-run city of Albuquerque is forcing U.S. kids out of city accommodations to provide cheap temporary housing for foreign migrants. The first victims were American children in a state 4H club who were expecting to use the temporary accommodation at the Expo New Mexico convention center for a four-day horseriding course. “My daughter was in tears about this,” Dr. Donny MacDougall told KRQE.com, which continued: “We were extremely disappointed when we have a quality facility like Expo New Mexico and the rug gets ripped out from under our kids’ feet,” MacDougall says. Just days ago, parents received a letter explaining the camp would now be held in Las Cruces because the state wants to use the dorms to help with the rush of asylum-seekers entering the U.S. “A different venue is a challenge for a lot of parents. It will cost more money and be more difficult logistically to get the kids there,” MacDougall says. “The city says this was an opportunity to save money for the [pro-migration] organizations that help the asylum seekers,” according to KRQE.com, which also quoted a city official saying : “Right now, many of these [pro-migration] groups host asylum seekers at hotels and places of worship, and so as great as that is for right now, it’s not something that is sustainable. It’s very costly for these groups,” Mariella Ruyz-Angel, Office of Immigrant and Refugee Affairs, said.”

The Glory of Carbon Dioxide By James Reed

     The following article which I will quote in all of its glory got censored by Big Tech, which is why we should be interested, nay, excited:
  https://www.naturalnews.com/2019-04-26-nasa-declares-carbon-dioxide-is-greening-the-earth.html

“In direct contradiction to the scare stories about carbon dioxide being relentlessly pushed by the climate change alarmists, a scientific study published in Nature Climate Change and highlighted by NASA reveals that rising carbon dioxide levels are having a tremendously positive impact on the re-greening of planet Earth over the last three decades, with some regions experiencing over a 50% increase in plant life. The study, entitled, “Greening of the Earth and its drivers,” used satellite data to track and map the expansion of green plant growth across the globe from 1982 – 2015. Published in 2016, this study found that rising atmospheric carbon dioxide causes “fertilization” of plant life, resulting in a remarkable acceleration of increased “greening” across every Earth continent. As the study abstract explains: We show a persistent and widespread increase of growing season integrated LAI (greening) over 25% to 50% of the global vegetated area… Factorial simulations with multiple global ecosystem models suggest that CO2 fertilization effects explain 70% of the observed greening trend… In other words, the planet is getting greener, and we have rising CO2 levels to thank for it, since rising CO2 accounts for about 70% of the increase in planet-wide greening, according to scientists. The more CO2 we release into the atmosphere, the more nutrients are available for plants, and the more rapidly the Earth is re-greened. The following compilation map shows which land masses have experienced expanded greening since 1982. As the legend explains, the light green areas represent a 25% increase in green plants, and the dark green areas represent a 50% or greater increase …”

Civil War is a Comin’ By Charles Taylor

     Pam Geller, whom I once saw speak in one her speaking tours here (New York), sent out an email to her supporters, and, well, I got one, saying: “Civil war …It's not a question of if, but when. One could make the case that it is already here. The left is itching for it. All the bullets, bombs and bloodshed comes as a result of what happens in the information battle-space. Civil war ends with guns, it starts here. We are on the forefront of that war. Everyone must be informed to be prepared for what's coming.

"There will be arrests and indictments without question…This was a coup. It was a conspiracy. It was criminal activity. These people need to be indicted, charged and need to be put in prison, and if they’re not, then our Constitution is nothing more than a sham.”

The Australian Climate Alarm Election By Viv Forbes & Dr Geoff Derrick

     The ALP-Greens-ABC-GetUp-Turnbull-CFMEU-Fairfax alliance ran hard in Australia’s recent climate alarm election - they lost. So let us see no more anti-coal motorcades, hear no more climate propaganda and replace Pied Piper Street Processions with hard science education. The new government must also stop blatant promotion of green energy with targets, subsidies and carbon taxes, and focus on infrastructure catch-up. Forecasts of doom are frequent, and they fail just as frequently. Climate is always changing. Global cooling always follows global warming. Government policies that assume continuous global warming expose our society and economy to huge risks for no measurable benefits when that forecast proves disastrously wrong. Despite the election win, there is no room to relax.

     As Dr Geoff Derrick points out:

“We must remember that the LNP Coalition still subsidises renewables,
has not built a decent dam for a long long time,
is only lukewarm about a new coal-fired power station,
has little interest in nuclear power,
still gives too much money to the ABC,
still wants to flood the country with immigrants
before infrastructure can adequately cope,
and we still have that French submarine agreement.
And none of them can read a ‘sciency’ graph.”

A Mainstream Gay Man Speaks Out By Mrs Vera West

     I was watching an episode of Cobra Kai with my granddaughter, this TV show being a karate soap opera for teens, when there was a presumably lesbian kissing scene dropped into the film, with no character development, gratuitously put in. Even heterosexual activities have some context, but this was characters that were dropped into the story with no development, purely to give a gay focus. Here is one gay man’s view on this sort of thing:
  https://amp.news.com.au/entertainment/movies/upcoming-movies/johnny-oleksinski-why-we-dont-need-a-gay-marvel-superhero/news-story/d6b985bae77d00f332abffa07a230dc8

“We the gay people have finally reached the Everest of equality. No, I’m not talking about the legalisation of gay marriage in 2015 … The big news is that Avengers: Endgame directors Anthony and Joe Russo revealed that a Marvel superhero or two will soon come out of the closet. Pop the cork! Set off the fireworks! Call up RuPaul for comment! Now the world will learn that a gay hero can lift a car, make a quip and be as emotionally vague as any straight superhero can. That’s real progress! Is it, though? Seems to me like more empty pandering for my money. For some reason, the Disney-owned, multibillion-dollar-earning Marvel Cinematic Universe has become the scrappy banner-carrier of equality and representation. Black Panther and Captain Marvel were ballyhooed as if they were human rights victories as much as films, because who needs, I dunno, actual legal and societal achievements when you’ve got pretty lip service from Hollywood?

Upheaval By Brian Simpson

     This is not a fellow whom I agree with much at all, but it is worth quoting out of curiosity about how the other side thinks. Jared Diamond, has a new book, Upheaval (2019), which I have not read, and do not intend to read. No need to, the plot is easy to work out. After writing about how nations collapse from environmental overshoot, but never from ethno-racial overshoot, now his focus is on how a selected number of nations have recovered, and this process is like how individuals recover from psychological illnesses, post-World War II Japan being one example discussed.

  https://www.telegraph.co.uk/books/what-to-read/upheaval-jared-diamond-review-can-nations-turmoil-benefit-crisis/

“Today, the risk that we’re facing is not of societies collapsing one by one, but because of globalization, the risk we are facing is of the collapse of the whole world. How likely do you think that is? That the whole network of civilization would collapse? I would estimate the chances are about 49 percent that the world as we know it will collapse by about 2050. I’ll be dead by then but my kids will be, what? Sixty-three years old in 2050. So, this is a subject of much practical interest to me. At the rate we’re going now, resources that are essential for complex societies are being managed unsustainably. Fisheries around the world, most fisheries are being managed unsustainably, and they’re getting depleted. Farms around the world, most farms are being managed unsustainably. Soil, topsoil around the world. Fresh water around the world is being managed unsustainably. With all these things, at the rate we’re going now, we can carry on with our present unsustainable use for a few decades, and by around 2050 we won’t be able to continue it any longer. Which means that by 2050 either we’ve figured out a sustainable course, or it’ll be too late.”

Does Anyone Smell a Double Standard Here? By Richard Miller

     Isn’t there a wee bit of a double standard here in the British police state, where immigration critics are probably soon going to be subjected to medieval tortures of England’s past, while others get … not quite the keys to the city …?
  https://www.dailymail.co.uk/news/article-7017857/Muslim-yob-threatened-kill-English-pigs-Royal-Shakespeare-Theatre-avoids-jail.html

“A … thug who threatened to gun down and stab staff and audience members at the Royal Shakespeare Theatre because 'he hated the English' has been spared jail. Ryhan Ali, 23, launched into an expletive-ridden tirade and told shocked theatre employees that he was 'going to get a gun and kill English pigs' and called them 'scum'. And when police arrived to arrest him, he branded an officer a 'racist white c***'. Astonishingly, hours before his foul-mouthed rant Ali had appeared in court for racially abusing two security guards after flying into a rage at a hospital where he accused a security guard of 'not being a real Muslim'. On Wednesday, he admitted racially aggravated offences, two of causing fear of violence and one of causing alarm or distress to people at the theatre. Ali, of Stratford-upon-Avon, Warwickshire, also pleaded guilty to three charges of malicious communication. But he walked free after he was given a 12-month prison sentence, suspended for two years. Judge Anthony Potter ordered him to carry out 80 hours of unpaid work and to take part in a rehabilitation activity for up to 30 days.”

Will Trump Doom Israel? By Charles Taylor

     It is fine that Trump has done much to support Israel over the rest of a hostile region, hostile to the West, but extreme caution needs to be taken with the present Iran crisis. We do not know what is going on here, whether Iran did first threaten America, but that is now all academic as Iran has again renewed its threat of destroying Israel. This is as serious as matters could get:

  https://www.timesofisrael.com/iran-says-us-doesnt-dare-attack-for-fear-of-provoking-assault-on-israel/

“A senior Iranian official on Sunday dismissed the US military buildup in the region as psychological warfare, saying that the US will not attack for fear of provoking an Iranian assault on Israel. “The US military forces’ deployment in the Persian Gulf is more of the nature of psychological warfare. They are not ready for a war, specially when Israel is within our range,” the Iranian Parliament’s vice-speaker Ali Motahhari said on Sunday, according to the FARS news agency. In addition to its own missiles, Iranian proxies like Hezbollah in Lebanon and Palestinian Islamic Jihad in the Gaza Strip have hundreds of thousands of rockets aimed at Israel. Israel’s energy minister, a confidant of Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu, warned earlier Sunday that escalating tensions between the US and Iran may lead the Islamic Republic to launch a missile assault against Israel.

Cambridge’s Problem of Hair By James Reed

     Shame on you, Cambridge University for not having enough special ethnic hairdressers to deal with the hairy joy of diversity; lift your game or be eternally whipped with the lash of racism:
  https://www.telegraph.co.uk/education/2019/05/09/black-students-failing-apply-cambridge-due-lack-afro-caribbean/

“Black students are failing to apply to Cambridge because there is a lack of Afro-Caribbean hairdressers in the city, the university’s pro-vice-Chancellor has said. The “unexpected” finding arose during research into what deters black students from considering the institution, according to Professor Graham Virgo. Speaking at an event held at King’s College, Cambridge, he said this was one of the barriers that black students face in applying to the university. “We have been doing some quite detailed research, particularly with black students, particularly in London, looking at obstacles to applying to Cambridge and thinking about Cambridge. And number three on the list was hairdressers,” he said. Prof Virgo, who is a QC and expert in criminal law as well as Cambridge’s senior pro-vice-Chancellor for education, said this revelation sent a “really important” message to the university.”

Letter to The Editor - We feel that sacred tradition and our cultural inheritance have now more chance of being protected

To The Age        My feeling after my Christian meeting for worship on Sunday was different from that of Margaret Tonkin (21/5). She felt despair, but I felt hope. This was not because I lack concern for the future of the planet or have no sympathy for the poor and for refugees. Perhaps there is other truth that needs to be spoken to power than she realises. My hope is based on the conviction that Australia dodged a bullet on Saturday. Sufficient electors realised that our nation was in danger of having its essential political order drastically changed for the worse. We feel that sacred tradition and our cultural inheritance have now more chance of being protected than would have been the case if Labor had won. This will benefit everyone.
