Lawyers Against Covid-19 By Ian Wilson LL.B

     I have written with frustration about the lack of movement of the legal fraternity about the increasing legal totalitarianism of Victoria.  But now I am pleased by recent developments as there is growing opposition at the 11th hour.

“An eminent group of retired judges and high-powered Queen’s Counsels has written an open letter calling on the Victorian Parliament to reject legislation that makes it easier to detain people during the coronavirus pandemic. Eighteen legal figures have taken the unusual step of coming together to launch a scathing attack, warning the Andrews Government’s COVID-19 Omnibus (Emergency Measures) and Other Acts Amendment Bill 2020 (Bill) endangered the freedoms of Victorians. “We are deeply concerned by the passage of the … Bill through the Legislative Assembly,” the letter states. “The Bill would also allow any person the Secretary considered appropriate to be authorised to exercise emergency powers. There would be no requirement that persons authorised be police officers, or even public servants.  “Authorising citizens to detain their fellow citizens on the basis of a belief that the detained person is unlikely to comply with emergency directions by the “authorised” citizens is unprecedented, excessive and open to abuse. “We call on the Legislative Council to amend the Bill, or to vote against it.” Retired High Court judge Michael McHugh, AC QC, and former Federal Court judges Peter Heerey, AM QC, and Neil Young, QC, headline the list of respected legal figures who have signed the letter. Other QCs who have joined the push are; James Peters, Peter Collinson, Maryanne Loughnan, Mary Anne Hartley, Philip Crutchfield, Georgina Schoff, Philip Solomon, David Batt, Stuart Wood, Felicity Gerry and Michael Borsky. After The Australian broke the story this morning, four more QCs added their names to the letter; Ross Gillies, Jennifer Batrouney, Rachel Doyle and Paul Hayes.

Crazy Nancy By Chris Knight

     After the election, if Trump is triumphant he needs to finally drain the swamp and impeach the likes of Nancy Pelosi, and have a treason trial. 

     To use impeachment as a political weapon to derail the actions of the presidency is an impeachable offence, and Trump needs to move on this horrid critter.

Degenerate Whites Who Feel Safe Now, Will be Unsafe Under Biden’s Antifa Government By Chris Knight

     Here is one from the green leafy suburbs that the writers here are always raging about. White women who feel safe, go for Biden; those unsafe go for Trump. That does not increase my respect for the IQ of such women. Oh, a criticism of women, can we say that still?

“White suburban women who feel safe in their communities overwhelmingly support Democratic presidential candidate Joe Biden, but those who feel unsafe support President Donald Trump, according to an Axios/SurveyMonkey poll released on Thursday. The “survey of 14,043 U.S. adults who are white and live in suburbs,” was part of a “SurveyMonkey poll of 35,732 U.S. adults” that was conducted between August 31 and September 6 on the SurveyMonkey platform and has a margin of error of one percent. The popular SurveyMonkey platform — on which more than two million Americans participate in surveys of all sorts each day — uses a different polling methodology than most other polling firms, many of which begin with a file of confirmed registered voters whom they contact by landline phone, cell phone, or online, and ask questions about their likelihood of voting. Many polls use samples of registered voters only, while the subset of likely voters is considered by many polling professionals to be a more accurate predictor of actual voting behavior. In contrast, SurveyMonkey polls are open to all adults who reside in America. That sample includes registered voters, but also residents of the country — not necessarily American citizens — who are not registered to vote. With those caveats in mind, the SurveyMonkey poll results paint a clear and compelling picture. Fifty-eight percent of poll respondents who are white and live in suburbs say they feel “very safe” in their community, while 38 percent say they feel “somewhat safe” and four percent said they feel “unsafe.”

Cannibalistic Crabs? By Brian Simpson

     A family, quietly minding their own business, munching away, are suddenly surrounded by huge cannibalistic crabs! My, that would make a great film or novel.

“A family who were trying to enjoy a spring camping barbecue were shocked to find they had been surrounded by a group of robber crabs. The giant crustaceans, also known as coconut crabs, measure up to metre in length and have a strong sense of smell. When an unwitting family were enjoying an al fresco barbecue while camping on Christmas Island, in Western Australia's far north-west, the the crabs swarmed around them. Photographs of the barbecue show more than 52 of the clawsome creatures eagerly awaiting a chance to snack on some leftovers. Winter McKendrick, the daughter of one of the other families on the trip, looked unfazed as the enormous crabs surrounded her as she ate her dinner on her fold-up camping chair. One brave crab was pictured scaling the side of the table to get better access to the family's delicious meal.”

Whoaha! The Civil War Express is A Coming! By Chris Knight

     As I covered in previous articles, the Left are threatening civil war if Trump fills the supreme court vacancy left by the death of the queen of Leftists, who could not be kept alive any longer by advanced technology. Well, for once there is some guts, just a wee bit, from the Republicans who are pressing ahead with filling the vacancy before the November 3, 2020 election, one of their few acts of bravery in modern times.

“On Monday’s broadcast of the Fox News Channel’s “Hannity,” Senate Judiciary Committee Chairman Lindsey Graham (R-SC) stated that Senate Republicans have “the votes to confirm Justice Ginsburg’s replacement before the election.” And said that the Senate Judiciary Committee will report the nomination so there can be a vote on the floor of the Senate on the nominee prior to the election and that Republicans will confirm Ginsburg’s replacement prior to the election. Graham also vowed that the nominee to replace Ginsburg on the Supreme Court will be supported by all the Republicans on the Senate Judiciary Committee. Graham said, “We’ve got the votes to confirm Justice Ginsburg’s replacement before the election. We’re going to move forward in the committee. We’re going to report the nomination out of the committee to the floor of the United States Senate so we can vote before the election. That’s the constitutional process. After Kavanaugh, everything changed with me. They’re not going to intimidate me, Mitch McConnell or anybody else. … The nominee is going to be supported by every Republican in the Judiciary Committee, and we’ve got the votes to confirm the judge — the justice on the floor of the Senate before the election. And that’s what’s coming.”

How Social Credit Might Deal with Cosmic Catastrophes? By Brian Simpson

     I don’t write much upon economics, not knowing anything about it, but the feeling is that we should try to give every article, even those about impending destruction of the world, an optimistic spin, which I am happy to do, if possible. Always look on the bright side of life, I say:

     That applies to space rocks in the cosmic shooting gallery. For some reason, some of these are allowed to strike the Earth, wiping out life e.g. the dinosaurs, but not in the human era, but who knows, maybe that could be our Sodom and Gomorrah treatment, and who could blame the Supreme Being for losing His patience with rebellious humanity, yet again?,it%20were%20to%20hit%20Earth

The China Covid-19 Cover Up By Brian Simpson

     With our attention being taken by the complete loss of civil liberties, and police head-kicking and other delightful things, concern about China’s initial cause of the Coviddy crisis has gone off the boil. However, things are about to get a whole lot hotter, and I am happy.

     The US Democrats are showing their loyalty to their new master China, or for some, an old master, by passing a resolution condemning basically any critique of the Chinese origin of the Wuhan flu. They will be happy to bury the United States and let China rise to global dominance, thinking that their hides will be preserved. Ha!

Energy Roadmap to Oblivion By Viv Forbes

     The LNP energy roadmap asks us to bet on “clean hydrogen, energy storage, green steel and aluminium, carbon capture and storage, and soil carbon”. Like the worst spec-stock spruiker they promise to streamline regulations and legislation to encourage these mal-investments. NOT ONE of these items will generate reliable low-cost 24/7 electricity. EVERY ONE will risk huge capital expenditure chasing green rainbows. NOT ONE will improve the climate. ALL obey foreign/UN agendas. If this is the best the LNP can offer we may as well vote Green/ALP to precipitate the inevitable energy crisis. When that real emergency comes, voters will punish this bi-partisan Parliament of Fools.

Mouse Utopia and this Age of Plenty By Brian Simpson

     Is the purpose of a Christian life to enjoy the material affluence that technology has delivered, the few crumbs that have fallen off the table of the elites? Or, at least until it ends, since the lesson of history is that all civilisations collapse, and why should this one be any exception? Or, is life about struggling against the odds, as Jesus did, who did not live a life of affluence and materialism, to demonstrator to the cosmos, faith under adversary (recall the Book of Job), and strength of character? Could it be that battle ground Earth is the reality, not the consumer supermarket? Well, psychology has something to say about this, the famous mouse utopia experiment, indicating that consumer affluence in the longer term is dysfunctional, and here is a great article on this, pre-digested for our consumption:

“I reported two years ago on the famous “Mouse Utopia” experiment that seemed to suggest that ideal conditions for humanity might, paradoxically, lead to societal collapse. And now there is the most striking evidence yet that this apocalypse may well be coming to pass. According to research in British medical journal The Lancet, we are transitioning into a worldwide collapse in fertility. In 2017, there were 2.4 children born per mother worldwide. But we will be well below replacement levels—of 2.1 children—by the end of the century. By then, there will be just 1.7 children per family [Fertility, mortality, migration, and population scenarios for 195 countries and territories from 2017 to 2100, by Stein Volset et al., The Lancet, July 14, 2020]. This will result in a catastrophic population implosion. Which is exactly what the “Mouse Utopia” scenario appears to predict. This shocking experiment took place at the University of Maryland between 1968 and 1973. Led by the extraordinary creative scientist John B. Calhoun (1917-1995), its aim was to understand what would happen if intense Darwinian selection dramatically weakened [Death Squared: The explosive growth and demise of a mouse population, by John B. Calhoun, Proceedings of the Royal Society of Medicine, 1973]. In creating this “Mouse Utopia” the experiment replicated post-industrial conditions in the West, where child mortality has fallen from 40% to about 1% since 1800, due to dramatically improved medicine and living conditions.

At Long Last Some Good News … Maybe By Charles Taylor

     Let us see if dopey, weak, low T Trump, the last stand of the West – that is how bad it is – can get this one right. Justice Ruth Bader-Ginsburg has died, and my mom said that if you cannot say anything nice about the dead, then don’t say anything at all. So, I will be silent on the passing of this most leftist of leftoids, sure that she has gone to a better, or at least a warmer place. 

     Trump has been given from above a chance for survival since it is now open, that the election is going to be stolen by postal votes, then supported by the Supreme Court. If he has the juice to put in a conservative judge, the West survives, hopefully, otherwise it is a total battle to the finish. Will this weak man weaken still under Left protests, who threaten to burn down America, if he does what is legal, and his duty, and replaces her? I say to the leftist scum; do your worst. It is time to fight fire with fire, literally:

Trump Needs to Deal with Wicked Pelosi By Charles Taylor

     Pelosi is back on the impeachment war path, to stop Trump nominating a candidate for the Supreme court, even though he has the right, and duty, to do so. This time, she is onto impeachment to stop him, as yet another harassment attempt to stop the functioning of the presidency. Don’t tell me that there is nothing that could be done about this. It is embarrassing to see Trump simply take this, time and time again. Fight back man, show some strength …don’t we have enough girlie men on the scene?

    She may also take the advice recommended by plump socialist Michael Moore to shut down the government:

Digging Our Own Graves By Chris Knight

     This is a depressing quote, but true, how across the world, Anglo Saxons, had the world, but let it slip through their hand, down the drain. Not even a fight, just a passive surrender, maybe not even that, but just dumbness. What force, or forces led to this pathological altruism? James Burnham in Suicide of the West: An Essay on the Meaning and Destiny of Liberalism (1964), says in a small passage that behind decadent liberalism, lies materialism, and consumerism, over-affluence resulting in weakness that leads to the pathological liberal mind set. Probably the decline of testosterone from plastics, a product of the affluence throw-away society has had a lion’s share to play too. There is not much manhood left out there. Shameful, but the Anglos will be forgotten, as they, and all that they produced, will be written out of history, if there is to be a future of history. It ids happening now, with the statues being torn down.

“In his book The Rise and Fall of Anglo-America, Eric P. Kaufmann argued that the American elite became modernist, cosmopolitan and antiracist during the first three decades of the 20th century. WASP elites began to reject their own ethnicity and “Anglo-conformity” which was the process by which European immigrants came to America and were expected to assimilate into the American nation. Instead of assimilating into a common American culture, European immigrants were encouraged to retain their own culture and enrich an otherwise sterile, bland and philistine Anglo-America. This idea which gained traction on the Left in the 1920s was later broadened into multiculturalism.

Dead Men Voters By Charles Taylor

     Trump must know about this, and still he has not moved. Talk about sleepy Joe, this guy is just as slow, but we have to support him, that is how desperate things are now in the final showdown for Western civilisation. When the US falls, how long will Australia remain uninvaded?

“A report from the Public Interest Legal Foundation (PILF) published this week found nearly 350,000 dead voters still eligible to cast a ballot and a significant number of double votes from the last two general elections.
Organization President and General Counsel J. Christian Adams told The Kyle Olson Show people are getting registered to vote multiple times, and secretaries of state such as Michigan’s Jocelyn Benson are not doing anything about it. According to the report, titled, “Critical Condition: American Voter Rolls Filled with Errors, Dead Voters, and Duplicate Registrations,” 349,773 “deceased registrants” have been found on rolls in 41 states. Fifty-one percent of those are in New York, California, and Texas, as well as the battleground states of Michigan and Florida. The report found that 43,760 “duplicate registrants appear to have cast second votes” from the same address in 2016, while 37,889 cast ballots in 2018. In Michigan, where Donald Trump won in 2016 by 10,704 votes, PILF found there were 34,225 deceased voters still on the rolls and a combined 13,597 double voters in the 2016 and 2018 elections. Some of those voters who are registered multiple times “are casting multiple ballots,” Adams said. “Michigan voter rolls are a mess and that’s exactly why Michigan should not be doing mail balloting until they clean up their act,” he told The Kyle Olson Show. Adams contended cleaning up the “mess” would be as simple as sorting the list by address and “see who’s all crammed into one house.” In August, as many as 20,000 unverified ballots were fed through machines in Detroit during absentee vote counting. Bob Cushman, an eyewitness to it all, recounted his observations on a recent episode of The Kyle Olson Show.”

Notes From Around - GOD OR MAN By D. B. Smith


     How many of you older folk remember the names Alger Hiss and Whittaker Chambers. The book “Witness” is the story of the exposure and trial of the spy, Alger Hiss. Written in 1952 by Whittaker Chambers, a  tragedy of history he had thought to call it, as it dealt with the clash of the two irreconcilable faiths of our time as he puts it—Communism and Freedom.

What Did I Tell you? A Death Tax! By James Reed

     I covered this one in an article last week, as Paul Keating (remember him?) gave us the news that there would be a HECs type of scheme for aged care, but no death tax. Well, guess what? Read on:

“Baby Boomers could be asked to sell the family home when they die to pay for aged care costs under a new plan to slap an effective death tax on seniors to fund care. Former Treasurer Peter Costello has urged the Morrison Government to consider an expanded pensioner loans scheme during his appearance today at the Royal Commission into Aged Care. Under the proposal, seniors would be given the option of taking out a loan secured against the family home, that would then be sold when they died or other assets liquidated. While some banks already offer reverse home loans, Mr Costello has called for debate on expanding a pensions loans scheme to use the family home as an asset that could be sold when a retiree dies to recover costs. “I mean, financial products that can allow people to raise accommodation bonds against the family home, which is generally their greatest asset, I think there’s a much more scope for them and I think the Government could assist there,” Mr Costello said. “The Government has a thing called the Pension Loan Scheme which it says is available. The private sector has what is called a reversible mortgage or equity drawdown mortgages. “But I do think, you know, this is a classic area where those people that do use residential care and do have assets should be asked to make a contribution and guaranteed a return of their deaths.”

Van Morrison Sings Against the Lockdowns By Bruce Bennett

     What is there not to like about cultural music icon Van Morrison? At least he has taken a stand against the lockdowns, unlike other singers like Dylan, who supposedly champion freedom, let alone the likes of lefties like Taylor Swift.

“Sir Van Morrison has accused the government of "taking our freedom" in three new songs that protest against the coronavirus lockdown. In the lyrics, he claims scientists are "making up crooked facts" to justify measures that "enslave" the population. "The new normal, is not normal," he sings. "We were born to be free". Speaking on Wednesday, the prime minister said the government was doing "everything in our power" to prevent another nationwide lockdown. "I don't want a second national lockdown - I think it would be completely wrong for this country," Boris Johnson told MPs at the Commons Liaison Committee. "So when I see people arguing against the rule of six or saying that the government is coming in too hard on individual liberties and so on - I totally understand that and I sympathise with that, but we must, must defeat this disease." No More Lockdown is the most strident of the three tracks. "No more lockdown / No more government overreach," the musician sings in the chorus. "No more fascist bullies / Disturbing our peace. "No more taking of our freedom / And our God given rights / Pretending it's for our safety / When it's really to enslave." Another song references a widely-shared Facebook post, of a screenshot from a UK government website saying, "Covid-19 is no longer considered to be a high consequence infectious disease (HCID) in the UK". While it is true that Covid-19 does not meet the criteria for an HCID - which typically has a high fatality rate (as much as 50% in the case of Ebola) - the disease is still considered highly infectious, with no specific vaccines or treatment currently available. Northern Ireland's health minister Robin Swann has described the new songs as "dangerous". "I don't know where he gets his facts," said Swann. "I know where the emotions are on this, but I will say that sort of messaging is dangerous."

Victorian Now Worst than Even the USSR By Ian Wilson LL.B

     If you thought things were bad for freedom in Melbourne, well here comes the COVID-19 Omnibus (Emergency Measures) Amendment Bill. It is stunning.

“The Victorian Labor government has introduced a bill to parliament that coupled with other measures is one of the most egregious attacks on civil liberties seen in war or peacetime. The Bill would allow people to be detained indefinitely and give sweeping powers to untrained people to become “authorised officers” with sweeping powers to arrest and detain fellow Victorians. Called the COVID-19 Omnibus (Emergency Measures) Amendment Bill, it overrides all other laws and legislation with the exception of the Charter of Human Rights (which the government ignores as it is not binding), the State Constitution Act 1975 and the laws created by the Bill itself. The Bill confers and extraordinary power to the Secretary of the Department of Health to appoint public servants as “authorised officers” with the same powers as police. However worse than that is a provision which allows the secretary to appoint any of the following as an “authorised officer”:

Biblical Words of Encouragement in Trying Times By James Reed

“Bread of deceit is sweet to a man; but afterwards his mouth shall be filled with gravel. Every purpose is established by counsel: and with good advice make war. He that goeth about as a talebearer revealeth secrets: therefore meddle not with him that flattereth with his lips. Whoso curseth his father or his mother, his lamp shall be put out in obscure darkness. An inheritance may be gotten hastily at the beginning; but the end thereof shall not be blessed. Say not thou, I will recompense evil; but wait on the Lord, and he shall save thee. Divers weights are an abomination unto the Lord; and a false balance is not good. Man’s goings are of the Lord; how can a man then understand his own way? It is a snare to the man who devoureth that which is holy, and after vows to make enquiry. A wise king scattereth the wicked, and bringeth the wheel over them. The spirit of man is the candle of the Lord, searching all the inward parts of the belly. Mercy and truth preserve the king: and his throne is upholden by mercy. The glory of young men is their strength: and the beauty of old men is the grey head. The blueness of a wound cleanseth away evil: so do stripes the inward parts of the belly.”

  – Proverbs 20: 17-30 (KJV) The King James version – truly beautiful prose, divinely inspired.

I Long for the Universities to Get Broker, Not Woker By James Reed

     I know that the corny corona freak out has brought in the New World Order, and unspeakable tyranny and misery, but it can’t be all bad, can it? Can it? Whatever happened to look on the bright side of life? So, let’s do it. At least the lockdowns, as soul destroying as they have been/are, as utterly destructive of the economy, and transferring wealth from the small business to the big, have taken the universities down with them. Why, the second round of staff cuts looks like it will be even better than the first. That has to count for something.

     Now that is behind a pay wall, and where it comes to money, well, I am not in that, I just hit the wall. But I actually had a copy of the FIN, if that is what it is called, and saw the article. So, unless travel restriction are lifted on the cash cows who keep the whole rotten sector afloat, there are likely to be at least 20,000 job losses, while the universities move from voluntary targets, to compulsory. Whoaha … go scum bags, go! I bet the vice chancellors, also know as chancellors of vice in some cases, getting the one million plus big smackeroos a year will not be losing much. And, I suppose the staff cuts will not be in vital areas such as critical race theory, gay and transgenderism, but things like engineering and STEM and life-saving technologies, but, well, it is a start. I would be happy to starve to death, even being eaten alive by giant post-apocalyptic rats, to see these cesspools of political correctness and mass migration go down the drain pipes of modernity.

Keating Just Keeps on Giving it to Us! By James Reed

     Does this nightmare ever end? I look at my very favourite capitalist paper, the FIN, and there is Keating doing what he does best.

“A HECS-style loan system should be introduced to help fund Australians' aged care, former prime minister Paul Keating says. People would be given credits towards their aged care and their estate then used to pay off the loans after they died, Mr Keating told the Royal Commission into Aged Care Quality and Safety. "We're not forcing anyone out of their home in old age, we're not obliging an aged person to negatively mortgage their home," he said on Monday. "You're not asking members of families to chip in and pay for their relatives. I think such a system has a lot of advantages." The latest round of royal commission hearings is looking at funding and prudential regulation in the aged care sector. Senior counsel assisting Peter Gray, QC, told commissioners that aged care providers were not required to report how much they were actually spending on care. Commissioner Tony Pagone asked Mr Keating if his HECS-style proposal could be seen as a death tax by requiring people to pay off their loans with their assets. "Putting on my former hat as a tax lawyer, I can see lots of people trying to make sure they don't have the assets there that can be called upon," Mr Pagone said. Mr Keating said the government would have to introduce policies to make sure that didn't happen. Similar to HECS, Mr Keating said the loan would not have to be repaid if it couldn't, like university students who never meet the income threshold to start paying off their debt. Brick and mortar assets, superannuation, cash and other investments would all be called upon after the person died to pay off the loan, he said. "In such a proposition you couldn't think of much political opposition from any quarter," Mr Keating said. The former prime minister, the man behind Australia's compulsory superannuation, said he changed his thinking on his previously proposed "longevity levy". The levy would tack 0.5 per cent to 1 per cent extra on to super payments to fund an insurance scheme for Australians once they passed their mid-80s.
