Australian Insurance Company Restricting Cover for Doctors Performing Child Sex Changes By Mrs Vera West

I did not see anything about this in our woke Australian mainstream media. Australia has some of the most “progressive,” in the Leftist sense, gender legislation in the world, being a real testing ground. But, the course of true ideology never runs smooth.  A medical indemnity insurer has issued an email to members stating that “in response to the high risk of claims arising from irreversible treatments provided to those who medically and surgically transition as children and adolescents,” it is “restricting cover for practitioners in private practice.”  From July 1, 2023, the insurer will not cover, or make a payment, when the claim arises “in any way” out of a doctor’s assessment that a patient under the age of 18 years is suitable for a “gender transition.”

Well, that throws a pretty spanner in the works.

“At the Most Basic Level, the News You Consume is a Lie.” Tucker Flies to Twitter By Charles Taylor (Florida)

Tucker Carlson is moving to sue Fox, to presumably free himself up to move to a new news venue. At present, he has gone to Twitter, using the facilities that is open to anyone, but there is a hint of great things to come. In a recent comment he showed that he will be producing interesting commentary, saying “At the most basic level, the news you consume is a lie.” That should, to be self-consistent, be applied to the mainstream news, which is a sound reason for an alternative media to the legacy press.

Pfizer and the Voice By James Reed

I am not surprised. Pfizer, those kind folks who gave us the life-saving vaxxes, now want us to vote YES in the Voice referendum. This goes with the packaging of Big Pharma as saving the world, so naturally, they say: “We believe the Voice will enable better health outcomes for First Nations communities in Australia and provide a route to help inform policy decisions that impact their lives.

Reconciliation helps to address the most significant disparity in Australia’s population: the health and wellbeing of First Nations peoples.

How this actually works is as much as mystery as the mRNA spike proteins. It would seem logical that health inequalities, if they exist, and that is an act of faith of the Left, should still be addressed, referendum or no referendum. Thus, if a NO vote succeeds, people should not wring their hands in white racial guilt, but still work to dealing with everything that supposedly would have been done (but won’t be) if the New World Order referendum had succeeded.

The “Vaccines are Safe” Narrative: Scientific Proof? By Brian Simpson

One of the positions that circulated in the vaccine critique movement, like the idea that viruses do not exist, or if they do, don’t do what received biology says they do, is the idea that there is no scientific proof, by double-blind, gold standard tests, that vaccines actually are safe. As detailed below, Steve Kirsch follows this issue through with his request to have presented to him such studies. But, I suppose by default, there could not be any such study, as all medications for at least someone have possible adverse effects. One can see this with the nice printout that comes with medication, with a fine-print list of all that could go wrong. Thus, I would suggest that the real issue is the actual probability of specific harms, rather than finding some sort of total safety.

Danger Zone: The Coming Conflict with China By James Reed

A new book by Hal Brands and Michael Beckley, Danger Zone: The Coming Conflict with China, tells us what most of us know. Conflict, indeed, war, with China is coming. But  most who think, believe that this is due to china’s rise to affluence, and hence the quest for world domination. However, there is another take; Brands and Beckley present evidence indicating that “peak China” has already occurred, and China will decline now, just as Japan, which many of our local traitorous elites thought would rule the world (back in the heady days of the Multifunction Polis project, 30 years ago), rose and fell. But, a declining China, and arguably a declining US, will make even more danger, much like an injured tiger is more dangerous than a healthy one. So, whatever way it goes: danger!

Even the Gay are Not Safe from Woke Brigade! By Chris Knight (Florida)

Coming your way Australia, as every weird thing that happens here in the US will be spread like a mind virus to Australia; once it took five years, now with social media brainwashing, maybe five days, or even minutes. Thus, Professor David Richardson, a tenured professor at Madera Community College, is a “self-described gay conservative.” Professor Richardson has been put on paid administrative leave pending an investigation into unspecified allegations of creating a “hostile work environment” and harassing and discriminating against colleagues “based on gender.” So, what horrible act did he do? Well, he had “manned’ a table featuring Jeremy’s Chocolates, which are explicitly anti-woke. Nothing else, just selling chocolates. And, now his job could very well go.

Why We Can Judge Cultures: Beyond the Cultural Relativism of the Age By James Reed

Cultural relativism is the doctrine that there are no objective criteria by which to judge cultures; that values and philosophies are dependent upon the cultures that they are found in. That doctrine is the foundation of postmodernism and contemporary sociology. However, it is internally incoherent, and self-undermining, but not in the way that most anti-relativist philosophers attack it.  The fact is, that the cultural relativist Leftoid is assessing other cultures being equal, made naturally from their own position. Nothing else is possible. But that is the paradox, because an assessment of cultures is still being made, which is intellectual imperialism: who are they to make such pronouncements!  

If there is one culture which asserts that there are absolute truths, say Western Christian culture, then according to the relativist, that culture is true relative to its foundations. But, that means that Western Christian culture is absolutely true! Hence relativism collapses!

The Environmental Threat of Recycled Plastic By James Reed

A recent article: Erina Brown et al, “The potential for a plastic recycling facility to release microplastic pollution and possible filtration remediation effectiveness,” Journal of Hazardous Materials Advances (2023). DOI: 10.1016/j.hazadv.2023.100309, has hammered some more nails, plastic ones, into the deep green coffin of recycling plastics. While is sounds like a good idea to do this to “save the environment,” in cold hard reality, recycling is a failure. Not only does most plastic not get recycled, once collected, but the process of recycling, involving industrial washing to remove gunk, also removes, believe it or not, plastic particles, which then as microplastics enter the environment, and do more harm that otherwise. As well, even though there is a lot of plastic in the ocean, cold but cuddly sea creatures are adapting to it, and making comfortable homes in the odd plastic drink container. Clean-up operations are disturbing this new micro-ecology, which is utterly shocking, at least for environmentalists.

Cruise Missiles for the Ukraine; What Could Possibly Go Wrong Here? By Richard Miller (London)

The UK has delivered long-range cruise missiles to the Ukraine. Supposedly the missiles do not have the range to strike Moscow, but are still capable of striking deep within Russia, hitting strategic locations. The UK government “has received assurances from the Ukrainian government that these missiles will be used only within Ukrainian sovereign territory.” Of course, they know that President Zelensky, the man who dances so well in heels, will do the right thing here and keep his word; would he lie to you? That is the faith of the Western liberal progressive regime. But, too bad if some Ukrainian military operative did not get the memo, and blasts away anyway. One must ask: how long will the Russian bear continue to put up with being prodded with a red-hot poker?

China’s War on Religion By James Reed

While the woke of the YES side in the Voice Referendum like to say that a NO vote would give the world a good reason to make Australia wear sack cloth and ashes for its white racial colonial sins, the counter is to cite the treatment of minorities in communist China, icon of the Australian woke Left. In particular, the neo-Buddhist religion, of Falun Gong has been subjected to a vicious crackdown since 1999. It has been regarded as a threat to the Chinese Communist Party, and hence something to be eliminated. Thousands of practitioners were arrested and subjected to abuse. Just how bad this was shown in the  the American Journal of Transplantation by Matthew Robertson, a Ph.D. student at Australian National University, and Dr. Jacob Lavee, the founder and former director of the Heart Transplantation Unit at the Sheba Medical Center in Israel. They found that organ procurement on an “industrial scale” was occurring, involving the extraction of organs from still living prisoners! This has not been refuted, and others have confirmed this. Thus, it hardly makes sense to condemn Australia for exercising a democratic right to vote, in a world where this genocide goes on, with the silence of the same woke Leftoids who would condemn us, but turn a blind eye to their icon of communism China.

A Modern French Revolution By James Reed

Victor Davis Hanson is also worth a read, writing profound material. While one take is that the US, and much of the West, is descending into anarcho-tyranny, discussed in another article here at the blog today, but another position upon this state of social decline and decadence, is to compare the contemporary world with aftermath of the French Revolution. While the liberals wax lyric about the French Revolution being a democratic revolution, it was anything but, with thousands of innocents being murdered in a great regain of terror. As Hanson notes, this revolution, apart from its murderous aspect, was nihilistic regarding culture as well, if not outrightly insane: “The months of the year themselves were renamed, the days of the week renumbered and relabelled. Statues were toppled, first at night, later in shameless daylight. Place names were erased and renamed. The original revolutionary heroes were not to be mentioned; their uncouth successors deified. Money was printed to “spread the wealth”—until it was worthless.

Murderous cancel culture ran unchecked. Yesterday’s French revolutionary became today’s counterrevolutionary—and tomorrow’s decapitated.”

The Descent into Anarcho-Tyranny By Charles Taylor (Florida)

The US is showing the direction that the deadly brew of diversity, multiculturalism, multiracialism and woke, as applied to law enforcement, is producing. The term describing this is “anarcho-tyranny,” state oppression from above, but social chaos and violence from below. The same things can be seen in Europe, perhaps to a different degree, but few places can match the sheer cultural collapse of American cities, or at least the diverse ones. New York, San Francisco, Baltimore and Chicago, to name a few have become cesspools of crime; New York saw major crime up 22 percent in 2022; Baltimore had a homicide rate of 58.27 per 100,000, while St Louis, Missouri, beat that at 64.54 per 100,000. Democrat DAs go easy on diverse crime, so shoplifting has gone through roof, and the roof would be taken to, if it as not nailed down! Hence shops lock up even mundane products such as Spam, or simply close down shop as is occurring in Baltimore.

The recent example of Jordan Neely, shows where things have gone. Neely was reportedly threatening people on a New York City subway. He reportedly said, “I’m not taking no for an answer,” “I’m ready to go back to jail,” and “I’ll hurt anyone on this train.” He was tackled to the ground and put in a headlock, not a choke, by a white guy. Later, as with George Floyd, while in police custody, Neely died. Now, said white guy is facing charges for possibly murder. In a sane society this would be regarded as a clear act of self-defence, but not so in New York. It shows the world, just how bad things can go, and the tremendous mistake America has made.

The Majesty of the Constitutional Monarchy By James Reed

Jeff Costello, an American, has given a fair expression of the meaning behind the coronation of King Charles. He rightly sees this as more than being about an individual, but as a symbolic set of acts, full of meaning and history. As we know, from American history, there is not much love of republicans for the constitutional monarchy, yet, with all the problems of the highly politicised, if not totally corrupt, presidency, Americans should rethink their antagonism. As Costello says, “This was a moment to face ourselves and see just how silly and vulgar we are. It was a moment to be humbled. This is one of the most important functions of tradition, and of the representatives of tradition, such as the royals: to remind us of greatness, of something greater than ourselves, so that we feel a call to rise, to be better than we are, to be worthy of our history, and to make our ancestors feel a little less nauseated when they look down at us, from wherever they are. It was the most beautiful ceremony I think I have ever witnessed (again, rivalled only by the Queen’s funeral) — and, to my surprise, it was also quite emotionally moving.”

Costello does not consider the wider Christian aspects of this, but what he says was a good start for an American, especially the point about seeing things greater than the individualism of liberal consumerism. As the philosopher David Stove wrote in his book Cricket Versus Republicanism (1995): “IT PASSES MY understanding how anyone with even a grain of sense can feel pleasure at the prospect of a republican Australia: an Australia, that is to say, even more "base, common and popular" than it is now. Anyway, I am myself for the British connection. In my World XI, Britons - Shakespeare, Purcell, Newton, Hume and Darwin - would be the first five picked. Either to the British exclusively, or to them more than to any other nation, the world owes, and Australia especially owes, whatever it has of scientific knowledge, sober philosophy, stable government without oppression - and cricket.

China: Not a Great Place to be a Journalist! By James Reed

Our great trading partner, and beloved icon of the Australian Left, communist China, jailed more journalists than any other country, which is quite an achievement considering that journalists would have a presumption to tread very carefully not to upset emperor of all men, Xi. Reporters without Borders ranked communist China behind only North Korea, a fellow communist buddy, for freedom of the press, meaning, no freedom of the press. But, communist China was one of the biggest exporters of propaganda. Indeed, it has most of the woke Left in the West well prepared to do its work, and even Joe Biden has been seen as a Chinese asset. So, things are going just swell for the communists. For the time. The reverse of the Cold War phrase goes through my mind: “better dead, than red.”

The Crushing Weight of Information Overload By Brian Simpson

How does one cope with dealing with the sheer amount of information that needs to be processed? Here at the blog we have a number of journalists and writers, spending hours each day to deliver content that covers much of the territory of much larger blogs like, and Natural Often, we are ahead of the curve, getting a story out before them. A one-man show would be struggling to do this, even working 24/7. But, even with a division of labour, the amount of information is still a challenge to deal with. It is suggested by A, that selectivity is therefore unavoidable as shown by the “cocktail party effect,” where in a crowded room with multiple conversations, one may zero in on mention of one’s name, which seems to imply that some neurological filtering mechanism is at work. The good doc identifies the neurology of this, but there is controversy about the exact mechanism:

Meat Control to Total Food Control By James Reed

The common pattern behind almost everything considered at this blog, is social control by the globalist elites. The war on meat is an example of this agenda. Meat has been a vital part of human diet from the dawn of time, and if one goes by evolution, meat eating was responsible for the development of the large size of the human brain. But now, unlike anything anticipated by pre-World War II social critics like George Orwell, meat eating is being attacked on the grounds that meat has a high carbon footprint, and must therefore be banned. The closing down of Netherlands farms, for alleged nitrogen outputs, is part of this madness.

The One World Tyranny of “One Health” By Brian Simpson

The World Health Organization (WHO) pandemic treaty, is part of a dark web of strategies to create a one world government, using health as the main weapon, which has now been integrated with climate change, since the medical authorities now accept climate change as a global health issue. The core approach is “One Health,” defined as “an integrated, unifying approach that aims to sustainably balance and optimize the health of people, animals and ecosystems,” as they are “closely linked and interdependent.” As concepts are left vague and elastic, there are concerns by critics that by surrendering health autonomy to WHO, national sovereignty will disappear as well, leading to a “global takeover of everything.” It is easy to see, given he broad concept of Health adopted, that most aspects of society and the economy can be seen as “health issues,” broadly defined. Independent journalist and researcher James Roguski, sums it up: “Basically, it’s capitalism, it’s corruption, it’s an abomination from a health perspective. Let’s just throw money at pharmaceutical companies, build out the infrastructure in these nations and, if you’re making tons of products locally, you’re going to be able to convince the local government to stick them in people’s arms or shove it down their throat.

“And none of it really has shown to be of any health benefit. It’s damage to people’s health.”

Professor Josef Seifert: Pope Francis, “Destroying the Foundations of Faith and Morals” By Peter West

It is a significant historical event, I think future historians of the Catholic faith will document; Josef Seifert, has published an open letter addressed to the cardinals of the Catholic Church. In the letter, reproduced bellow, he calls on the bishops of the Church to resist Pope Francis’  heterodox actions, “destroying the foundations of faith and morals.”

The Pope signed the “Document on Human Fraternity for World Peace and Living Together,” the Abu Dhabi document, with the Grand Imam of Al-Azhar. The document states that “[t]he pluralism and the diversity of religions, colour, sex, race and language are willed by God in His wisdom, through which He created human beings.” This, Professor Seifert argues, amounts to apostasy, the abandonment of Christian faith, as uniquely true, and acceptance of religious and cultural relativism,  and is a more serious flaw than even the Pope’s woke, globalist political proclamations over immigration. It goes to the heart of the problem of Pope Francis.

Stepping Stones to Transhumanism By Mrs Vera West

There is an interesting take given by various philosophers to the relationship between the transgender movement and transhumanism. As philosopher Max More has said: “Transhumanists want to apply technology to overcome limits imposed by our biological and genetic heritage.” “Transhumanists regard human nature not as an end in itself, not as perfect, and not as having any claim on our allegiance.”  “Rather, it is just one point along an evolutionary pathway, and we can learn to reshape our own nature in ways we deem desirable and valuable.” 

“By thoughtfully, carefully, and yet boldly applying technology to ourselves,” said More, “we can become something no longer accurately described as human – we can become posthuman.” See:

Time to Exit the World Health Organization By Brian Simpson

Dr Robert Malone, in a hard-hitting piece, has written that it is time for the US, and by implication, other nations, to exit from the World Health Organization (WHO). The first step is to not sign the pandemic treaty. WHO is a UN organisation, that has the same one world goal as the UN. As Dr Malone points out, the agency is effectively controlled by the Chinese Communist Party, as shown over the Covid plandemic, where WHO did not adequately investigate China’s role in releasing the Covid-19 virus, and acting to spread it. The WHO has faithfully done the bidding of communist China, with the lockdowns, masks and vaccine mandates, pushing for the experimental mRNA vaxxes of Big Pharma being advanced for mega-corporate profits. And, those sympathetic to the CCP model of society, such as Bill Gates,  endorsed the CCP approach, seen as a shortcut to globalisation.
