Armed, 10-Year-Old Car Jackers! By Charles Taylor

     This is how it is likely to end, as children arm themselves, or are armed by adults with guns, then go on crime sprees, something common in Africa.
  https://dailycaller.com/2020/07/22/chicago-children-carjacking-guns/

“A band of armed children allegedly committed 15 carjackings since late June in Chicago’s South Side and have yet to be caught, police said. The majority of the auto theft has taken place in the past week with six separate carjackings on Saturday alone, according to a Chicago Police bulletin that was provided to the Daily Caller News Foundation. Law enforcement are on the hunt for between four and six African American suspects aged 10 to 17,  the bulletin said. The group of kids has reportedly fired guns in two of the incidents and allegedly approached their victims while idle or parked at a gas station. Many of the robberies occurred in broad daylight, the notice read. “I’m scared to use my garage. I don’t feel safe in my neighborhood,” carjacking victim and Chicago elementary school teacher Alyssa Blanchard told Fox 5. Blanchard said she was forcibly removed from her BMW by two kids brandishing handguns in a hospital parking lot on July 14. The group pointed the firearms at her head, grabbed her purse and sped off with her luxury vehicle, according to Fox 5. The following day the armed teens allegedly used the BMW to steal another vehicle from a 21-year-old, injuring the young woman in the process. Police found Blanchard’s car days later after it had been crashed, the local outlet reported. “I teach this age group and I can’t believe they would do this,” Blanchard told Fox 5.

Bikini Girl Stripped Down by Politically Correct BLM! By Michael Ferguson

     It is all basic Skinnerian operative conditioning psychology of reward and punishment, of teaching people a lesson, and display of power. The elites will destroy you, no matter how good one looks in a bikini. Even me.

“The US talent boss boyfriend of the Miss Swimsuit UK stripped of her crown after posting an anti-Black rant has himself declared that white privilege is a 'leftist lie' in a series of his own outbursts following George Floyd's murder, MailOnline can reveal today. Jasmine Archer-Jones, 23, from Chester, who moved to Texas shortly after winning the title last year, took to Facebook to share her view that Mr Floyd may not have been innocent and that 'ALL lives matter'. Miss Archer has been in a relationship with US-based talent agency boss Todd Markey since March, according to her Facebook profile. Based in Houston, Texas, Mr Markey, who spent some of his childhood in South Africa, is believed to be a Donald Trump supporting separated father-of-two who shares his girlfriend’s views on the Black Lives Matter movement. Last month he posted a photograph of white BLM protesters with the caption: ‘White guilt is real, white privilege is a leftist lie' and declared: 'Couldn't have said it better myself'. Miss Archer-Jones made her controversial post on June 3 relating to the wave of protests sweeping the globe. She wrote: 'This is ridiculous now. It HAS to STOP. ALL lives matter, if you look deeply into statistics, more UNARMED WHITE people DIED than BLACK last year', reports The Sun. She added: 'Yes some people may say George Floyd died when he was innocent but I am yet to see hard evidence of this.”

The French Revolution 2.0 By Chris Knight

     Comparisons are being made that the BLM movement is like the early stages of the French Revolution, designed to tear down the old order. This will be interesting, since it is unclear what could possibly hold the present cesspool together. And the parasites are quite likely to deprive themselves of their host:
  https://www.naturalnews.com/2020-07-25-blm-movement-akin-to-the-french-revolution-reign-of-terror.html

“The Black Lives Matter movement may be on its way to becoming a mass movement similar to the French Revolution, Hoover Institution senior fellow Victor Davis Hanson said. In an interview with author and conservative radio show host Eric Metaxas, Hanson cited glaring similarities between the ongoing Black Lives Matter movement and the French Revolution’s Jacobin dictatorship, which is known for its “reign of terror.” According to Hanson, the similarities between the two become even more apparent once their ideologies get inspected, noting that Black Lives Matter takes after the French Revolution’s values of “egalitarianism and fraternity,” which sought to change every aspect of the citizens’ life. “Everything is on the table. I never imagined that NPR would be telling listeners to decolonize their library or there would be women to shave their heads so they wouldn’t have non-African American hair, or they wouldn’t privilege their whiteness,” Hanson said, describing the acts as reflective of “reeducation camp mentalities.” “That’s what we are witnessing now with this movement,” Hanson said, echoing statements he made during a prior appearance at Fox’s The Ingraham Angle. Hanson, during his Ingraham Angle appearance, noted that while Black Lives Matter had legitimate concerns regarding African-American issues during the early days following George Floyd’s death at the hands of a White police officer, the movement has since devolved and become what he called a forum for “blanket condemnation” of law enforcement and authorities. “…All of a sudden people were cutting their hair and saying ‘I’m not black.’ Children were accusing their parents of racism or suddenly it was ‘defund the police’ or you have to remove books from your bookshelf if they display inordinate attention to white authors,” Hanson said, referring to the social justice-related trends that have since emanated from the movement. “You’ll never be able to satisfy the iteration as they get more radical,” Hanson told host Laura Ingraham. This, Hanson said, stems in part from globalization and multiculturalism, noting that there are approximately 55 million people in the country who, due to their being born and raised abroad, may not be familiar with traditional American values.”

China Set to Teach Australia a Lesson By James Reed

     Australia is a morally right of course, but not strategically smart. China is set to tech us a lesson. We should have been independent and self-reliant since 1947, but the elites plunged us down the globalist path, beginning with Great Replacement mass migration. But, back to the present China crisis:
  https://www.theaustralian.com.au/nation/china-fires-back-over-australias-illegal-south-china-sea-declaration/news-story/cf4496543937c750cb1ad22a90cc8f3e?utm_source=TheAustralian&utm_medium=email&utm_campaign=editorial&utm_content=TATodaysHeadlinesSubPM
  https://amp.abc.net.au/article/12491366

“Chinese government mouthpiece The Global Times says Australia’s declaration that China’s territorial claims in the South China Seas are illegal is a reckless “provocation” that could be punished with trade sanctions against Australian beef and wine. It says Australia’s statement to the United Nations is aimed at winning the support of the United States, but warns “Australia hasn‘t clearly thought about the consequences”. “From China‘s perspective, it’s recklessly making provocations,” the paper says in an article by Guangdong Research Institute for International Strategies professor Zhou Fangyin.  “The relationship between China and Australia has now deteriorated to a very bad point, and the chance for a turnaround is slim in the near future.” The article, titled “Australia unwisely boards US leaky boat”, says the Morrison government’s decision is “not surprising”. “One of the main reasons is that Australia‘s policy lacks independence, and its current choice is to closely follow the US lead,” the paper says. “If Australia further provokes China, not only on political relations, but also economic relations, the damage to Australia should be expected. “It should be said that so far, Australia has not learned a great lesson. “If it still insists on going on the current path, the possibility that China will take strong countermeasures cannot be ruled out. For example, China could target substitutable agricultural products such as beef and wine.” The threat follows Beijing‘s move to slap an 80 per cent tariff on Australian barley and suspend beef imports from four eastern states abattoirs after Australia led global calls for an independent inquiry into the coronavirus. Australia dramatically raised the stakes in its worsening relationship with China late last week, formally declaring disputed Chinese claims in the South China Sea as having “no legal basis”. In a statement filed at the United Nations in New York, Australia said it rejected China’s maritime claims around contested islands and features in the South China Sea as being inconsistent with the UN Convention on the Law of the Sea and therefore “invalid”. The diplomatic stoush comes just days ahead of high-level talks between Australia and the US in Washington, and follows the United States’ declaration earlier this month describing China’s South China Sea claims “completely unlawful.”

Going the Full Commo Now! By James Reed

     What will it take to kill off communism for all time? It is hard to eliminate, and keeps coming back, like the worst of weeds and pests. And, at present it has erupted like a boil on the flesh of US society, no longer confined to the university vile traitor class. And, be sure it will flow like sewerage here.
  https://gellerreport.com/2020/07/de-blasio-quotes-karl-marx.html/

“New York mayor Bill de Blasio quoted Karl Marx when outlining the relationship he wanted his office to have with the city’s business community, in an appearance on The Brian Lehrer Show on WNYC. Host Brian Lehrer asked de Blasio how the mayor was approaching businesses for help with recovery from the coronavirus pandemic. Lehrer said that the mayor was not known for extensive outreach to the business community given his focus on issues of wealth inequality. “There’s an underlying truth in the fact that my focus has not been on the business community and the elite,” de Blasio said. “I am tempted to borrow a quote from Karl Marx here…” “They’ll love that on Wall Street,” Lehrer interjects. “Yes they will,” de Blasio laughs. “There’s a famous quote that ‘the state is the executive committee of the bourgeoisie,’ and I use that openly to say no, I read that as a young person and thought, well, that’s not the way it’s supposed to be.” The quote comes from the first chapter of Marx’s Communist Manifesto, in which Marx outlines his theory of the progressive advancement of the class of the bourgeoisie at the expense of the proletariat. The mayor continued in the interview, “We need to work with the business community, we will work with the business community, but the city government represents the people, represents working people …. A lot of folks have just sort of hit a wall when I say guys, you’re gonna have to pay more taxes, and we’re gonna have policies that favor working people more.” De Blasio ended by saying he knows that many businesses want to help with a “comeback” for the city, and that his administration “really appreciate[s] that.” The interview was not the first time de Blasio has quoted a communist figure. In 2019, the mayor apologized after quoting communist revolutionary Che Guevara at a rally of striking airport workers in Miami. “I did not know the phrase I used in Miami today was associated with Che Guevara & I did not mean to offend anyone who heard it that way. I certainly apologize for not understanding that history,” de Blasio wrote on Twitter after backlash from Miami’s Latino community, many of whom are Cuban exiles.”

Lying about Georg Floyd By Chris Knight

     It is taking some time, but I guess the system is keeping a lid on things as best they can, given how useful the Floyd thing has been to deconstructing the West. That and the Wuhan flu freak-out, as we are calling it here, have delivered to the globalists, benefits they perhaps only dreamt of last year.  But back to George:
  https://www.amren.com/news/2020/07/the-lies-behind-the-george-floyd-case/
  http://www.usasurvival.org/blog/the-lies-behind-the-george-floyd-case

“The George Floyd riots that resulted in $500 million worth of damage to Minneapolis were based on a lie. With more evidence now available, one possible verdict is that the drugs in his system contributed to his death, as he was out of control and resisted arrest. Transcripts of police body camera recordings of the confrontation demonstrate that George Floyd, the so-called “gentle giant,” was foaming at the mouth and so out of control that the police had no alternative but to pin him down with a knee to the neck, an acceptable police procedure when a suspect goes berserk.  A legal memorandum in the case, seeking dismissal of the charges, was filed by an attorney for one of the officers and incorporates the facts from the body cameras:  “Floyd had just committed a felony, he was not being cooperative, and appeared to be under the influence of drugs. There was a lengthy struggle to get 6 foot four, 223 pound Floyd into the car.” (Other reports put Floyd’s height at 6 foot six or seven). He was 46 years old. With new evidence showing the police acted properly, the charges could be dismissed. If they are not, we can anticipate not-guilty verdicts in a fair trial that will be exploited to further feed the fires of racial animosity in the hands of the Black Lives Matter agitators. Or else the trial will be rigged and police will be framed for crimes they didn’t commit, in order to tamp down the potential for more riots. These are the stakes as the new evidence has emerged, throwing into doubt the charges of murder and aiding murder filed against the four police officers.

How is this for Bare-Faced Absurdity: The Fall of the Rule of Law By Charles Taylor (Florida)

     First the story, which is utterly incredible, even in this age of the absurd, then my exasperated comments:
  https://www.zerohedge.com/political/patricia-mccloskey-pistol-was-non-operable-prop-so-prosecutors-office-ordered-it

“The pistol Patricia McCloskey waved at protesters who broke down a gate to trespass on their private street was a non-operable 'prop' used during a lawsuit they were involved in, so a member of Circuit Attorney Kim Gardner's staff ordered the crime lab to disassemble and reassemble the gun - allowing them to classify it as "capable of lethal use" in charging documents filed Monday, according to KSDK5. In Missouri, police and prosecutors must prove that a weapon is “readily” capable of lethal use when it is used in the type of crime with which the McCloskeys have been charged. Assistant Circuit Attorney Chris Hinckley ordered crime lab staff members to field strip the handgun and found it had been assembled incorrectly. Specifically, the firing pin spring was put in front of the firing pin, which was backward, and made the gun incapable of firing, according to documents obtained by 5 On Your Side. Firearms experts then put the gun back together in the correct order and test-fired it, finding that it worked, according to the documents.”

Turning on Their Own By Bruce Bennett

     A professor says that the publishing industry is not racist, and now he faces sacking. And, he is a supporter of BLM. Well, the revolution is “eating its own,” now:
  https://www.thecollegefix.com/university-of-pennsylvania-professor-says-publishing-industry-isnt-racist-critics-are-trying-to-get-him-fired/

“‘I am pro-Black Lives Matter. I am not racist, not by a long shot’
A University of Pennsylvania professor may be kicked out of leadership in a prestigious literary group for privately disputing the wording of a proposed Black Lives Matter statement. The National Book Critics Circle said it’s “facilitating a special membership meeting” to vote on the removal of Carlin Romano from its board, citing a request from “more than 30 regular members.” Romano’s critics are trying to get him fired by Penn as well. More than 240 people have signed a petition demanding that Penn’s Annenberg School for Communication, where Romano (above) teaches media theory and philosophy, “prohibit Carlin Romano from teaching at Penn this fall or ever again.” The professor’s job at Penn does not appear to be in immediate danger. Neither Penn media relations nor Annenberg Director of Communications Julie Sloane responded to College Fix queries about Romano’s job. While NPR described Romano’s comments as “racist,” his primary objection to the proposed statement was that it ignored the American publishing industry’s efforts to promote black authors in the past few decades. Romano, a former NBCC president and its current vice president of grants, also said he bore no “culpability” for the supposed “erasure of BIPOC [black, indigenous and people of color] voices” in publishing, as the statement described the industry. “I myself have probably written more articles and reviews about Philadelphia’s black literature and traditions in my 25 years at the [Philadelphia] Inquirer than anyone living, black or white,” he wrote in the email to fellow board members that is now being used against him. He also objected to the media’s portrayal of his comments in the private email, telling The Daily Pennsylvanian: “I am pro-Black Lives Matter. I am in favor of greater diversity in the book publishing business. I am not racist, not by a long shot.”

Coon Cheese gets Cancelled By James Reed

     I understand; someone found it offensive; but at least we still have the tastiest cheese on the planet, to eat at home under lock down and cancellation. Once cheese is banned itself, whatever shall I do for fibre?
  https://www.dailymail.co.uk/news/article-8555439/Coon-cheese-dead-Foreign-owners-kill-controversial-brand-Australia.html?ito=push-notification&ci=24543&si=12817605

“The Coon cheese brand name will be scrapped from Australian supermarkets after 78 years by its Canadian owners. Aboriginal activists have spent the past 20 years lobbying to have the brand name changed as the word 'coon' is demeaning to people of colour. On Friday, the company announced it had decided to retire the Coon brand name. The move comes after the Black Lives Matter movement gathered momentum in the wake of the death of George Floyd. The company confirmed it would look for a new name which 'aligned with current attitudes'. We performed a careful and diligent review of this sensitive situation,’ the CEO of Saputo, which makes the cheese, Lino Saputo Jr said. 'We wanted to ensure we listened to all the concerns surrounding the COON brand name, while also considering comments from consumers who cherish the brand and recognise the origin of its founder Edward William Coon, which they feel connected to. 'After thorough consideration, Saputo has decided to retire the COON brand name. 'As part of this process of transformation, we commit to keep our stakeholders informed as we move forward.”

On Banning all Non-Aboriginal Religions? By Ian Wilson LL.B

      Here is a petition before the Queensland parliament, which illustrates how mad things are getting:
  https://www.parliament.qld.gov.au/work-of-assembly/petitions/petition-details?id=3380

“TO: The Honourable the Speaker and Members of the Legislative Assembly of Queensland
Queensland residents draws to the attention of the House certain religious organisations operating in Queensland have a prime belief that a supreme being created the Earth about 6000 years ago. This is an anathema to many sciences and in particular to Aboriginal culture which is 60,000 to 120,000 years old. The creationist religions effectively deny Aboriginal history and culture thereby breaching our racist vilification laws. Your petitioners, therefore, request the House to ensure that religious organisations preaching that a supreme being created the Earth about 6000 years ago not receive any State government assistance, exemptions, subsidies or funding.”

A Loss in the Federal Court By Ian Wilson LL. B

     Unfortunately, there has been a loss in the Peter Ridd Case in the Federal Court:
  https://www.theaustralian.com.au/nation/james-cook-university-wins-appeal-over-12m-peter-ridd-judgment/news-story/ff08fe521298a1f50c85acc264e4acba
  https://www.judgments.fedcourt.gov.au/judgments/Judgments/fca/full/2020/2020fcafc0123

“James Cook University has won a bid to overturn a court decision last year awarding $1.2m to outspoken professor Peter Ridd over his sacking for criticising climate science and fellow academics at the Townsville-based institution. The full bench of the Federal Circuit Court on Wednesday found JCU was within its rights to sack Professor Ridd for “serious misconduct” in 2018 after he publicly disparaged his colleagues and claimed the university’s Great Barrier Reef global warming science was misleading and sensationalist. Defending his actions, the marine physicist said it was within his right to intellectual freedom but the full court ruled that liberty was constrained by the behavioural standards of the university’s code of conduct. Professor Ridd confirmed to The Australian on Wednesday that he had sought legal advice about challenging the verdict in the High Court. The university stalwart was given an initial warning in April 2016 after he emailed a journalist and criticised his colleague Professor Terry Hughes, the head of JCU’s Centre of Excellence for Coral Reef Studies, for using “misleading” images portraying “broad scale decline” in the health of the Great Barrier Reef. The university found he had breached the code of conduct because he had not acted collegiately.”

They Come with Guns By Charles Taylor

     Here is the future for the US, where the diverse must be allowed to do what they want irrespective of the rule of law. Any policing they don’t like will be met in this fashion.

  https://www.dailymail.co.uk/news/article-8802817/Hundreds-members-black-militia-raise-guns-Louisiana-rally.html  

“Some 400 members of an armed black militia brandished semi-automatic weapons in a show of force in Louisiana on Saturday as they protested a recent fatal shooting of a black man by local police. The NFAC, or ‘Not F****** Around Coalition,’ is an Atlanta-based militia made up primarily of former military veterans. The organization has frequently staged processions and marches in several cities that have been flashpoints of racial tension these past few months. The militia members were marching to protest the August 21 shooting death of Trayford Pellerin. Police claimed officers shot Pellerin after he was seen walking into a convenience store with a knife. It was particularly active this past summer in Louisville, where protests were frequently staged in the wake of the March 12 shooting by police of Breonna Taylor. Last month, a Louisville grand jury declined to pursue criminal charges against any of the officers for fatally shooting Taylor, a 26-year-old black EMT who was killed in her bed as cops executed a no-knock search warrant. Police, who believed Taylor’s home was used to facilitate the sale of drugs, did not find any narcotics during the raid. According to its leader, John ‘Grandmaster Jay’ Johnson, the NFAC’s three main missions is to protect the black community; self-police the black community; and educate the community about their rights as gun owners.”

Guilty of Defending Italy By Richard Miller

     Nationalist hero, Matteo Salvini, is being put on trial for defending Italy, or as the elites charge, a little something called “migrant kidnapping”:
  https://www.theguardian.com/world/2020/oct/02/matteo-salvini-set-to-be-tried-over-migrant-kidnapping-charges-italy

“Italy’s far-right former interior minister Matteo Salvini goes on trial on Saturday on kidnapping charges over an incident in 2019 when 116 migrants were prevented from disembarking a coastguard ship in the Mediterranean. Prosecutors in the Sicilian city of Catania accuse the League party leader of abusing his powers to block people from disembarking from the Gregoretti coastguard boat under his “closed ports” policy. The 47-year-old called on his supporters to descend on the courtroom in Catania to protest against what he has described as a plot against him. “I will plead guilty to defending Italy and the Italians,” Salvini told the press last week. Fellow far-right leader Giorgia Meloni, head of the Brothers of Italy party, has promised to attend the rally, while the ex-prime minister Silvio Berlusconi, who has faced several trials himself, will send a delegation from his Forza Italia party.” Salvini says, “I will plead guilty to defending Italy and the Italians.”

The Chinese Security Issue By James Reed

     The issue of the overseas Chinese and their loyalties is being discussed, long     after the horse has bolted. It is a major problem that has no easy solution, indicating that our liberal immigration policy since the end of World War II, is incoherent, and self-destructive.
  https://uk.reuters.com/article/uk-britain-china-students/uk-to-exclude-chinese-students-from-sensitive-subjects-times-idUKKBN26M5YY

“Britain is to tighten rules about which subjects foreign students can study at its universities in a move to prevent the theft of intellectual property by Chinese students, the Times newspaper reported on Thursday. Under Britain’s Academic Technology Approval Scheme (ATAS), postgraduate applicants from abroad already require security vetting to study subjects where their knowledge could be used in weapons programmes, according to a government website. The Times report said the list of subjects would be expanded to include areas related to cyber-security and aircraft, among others. Asked to comment on the report, the Foreign Office said the government had implemented a recent expansion of ATAS to cover military technology, to ensure Britain’s safeguards were keeping up with ever-changing global threats. “As an open country, we welcome foreign students, including from China, where they add to the academic richness of our world-leading universities,” a spokeswoman said in a statement. “But we will not accept collaborations which compromise our national security and ATAS is one of the robust procedures we have in place to protect national security and counter foreign interference.” According to the Times, the measures were expected to block hundreds of Chinese students from entering Britain, while visas for those already enrolled would be revoked if they were deemed to pose a risk.”

Dirty Vatican Politics By Peter West

     Just when you thought that the injustice against Cardinal George Pell, in his sex trial case was over, it emerges that there is much more, once hidden behind the scenes:
  https://www.theaustralian.com.au/world/the-times/sacked-cardinal-used-vatican-funds-to-bribe-witnesses-in-pell-trial/news-story/64a88a004f92c0b104296277462b7600

“A senior Catholic cardinal has been accused of using €700,000 ($1.14m) of Vatican funds to bribe witnesses to secure a sex abuse conviction against a rival. Italian media have reported that Cardinal Giovanni Angelo Becciu, 72, is suspected of wiring the cash to recipients in Australia who helped to ensure hostile testimony in the abuse trial of Cardinal George Pell, who was accused of molesting choir boys in Melbourne in the 1990s. The scandal cast a shadow yesterday over the publication of a key Vatican document calling for a more caring and sharing society and denouncing the evils of war. Before he returned to Australia in 2017 where he was tried, jailed and acquitted on appeal, Cardinal Pell, 79, served as finance minister at the Vatican, where his attempts to clean up opaque accounting were opposed by Cardinal Becciu. Quoting leaked documents, the Italian newspapers La Repubblica and Corriere della Sera reported at the weekend that Vatican investigators suspect that Cardinal Becciu hoped to use the money to definitively derail Cardinal Pell’s transparency program, which threatened to expose Cardinal Becciu’s allegedly corrupt management of Vatican cash. Cardinal Becciu issued a strongly worded denial of the reports , stating: “I categorically deny interfering in any way in the trial of Cardinal Pell.” Cardinal Becciu held an influential role in distributing and investing millions of euros of Catholic donations as the deputy secretary of state between 2011 and 2018 before Francis put him in charge of running the Holy See’s department responsible for making saints. He was sacked from that job and stripped of the right to elect popes by Pope Francis last month, as Vatican investigators sifted through his spending record at the secretariat of state. Their suspicions are focused on a multimillion investment he oversaw in a luxury property in Chelsea, London, which allegedly lost the Vatican money while making millions for consultants.”

On the Question of the Lawfulness of Travel Bans and All the Rest By Ian Wilson LL.B

     David Flint in his article, “Dictatorial Travel Ban Unlawful,” published in the Spectator Australia, August 29, 2020, puts the case, as the title indicates, that the federal government travel bans are illegal.
  https://www.spectator.com.au/2020/08/dictatorial-travel-ban-unlawful/

“Because the National Cabinet has no place in the Constitution, its decisions are affected by ministers making subordinate legislation, often without even viceregal scrutiny. Exercising a power under the Biosecurity Act ‘to prevent or control the spread’ of the virus ‘to another country’, the Health Minister on 25 March decreed that an Australian citizen ‘must not leave Australian territory as a passenger’ without satisfying some faceless bureaucrat that he or she has a ‘compelling reason’ to leave. The reasons are narrowed down on the official website. Officials and business people apart, ‘compelling reasons’ are limited to medical treatment not available in Australia or on compassionate or humanitarian grounds. According to reports, these take time and are rarely granted. This almost blanket ban on travelling is beyond the narrow power parliament gave the minister to stop the spread of the virus to another country. This is a funnel the size of which constrains the minister, whatever the National Cabinet wants, to make subordinate legislation of no greater width. He could have quite properly required that people leaving be tested. But like a Stalinist state, you can’t leave without the agreement of some faceless bureaucrat. This tyrannical requirement could be as much an actionable misfeasance in public office as was the Gillard government’s unnecessary and legally unjustifiable total ban on the export of live cattle to Indonesia. This is but one example of ministers wielding powers unnecessarily and capriciously restricting Australians in the exercise of their fundamental rights, including the common law rights to carry on a business, to work and to move around freely. Power has gone to the politicians’ heads.”

Respect Cultural Diversity! By Mrs Vera West

     Cultural diversity, so long as it is not our culture, which the Left tells us daily is only suitable for junking because of Racism Pty Ltd, is wonderful. And who could possible doubt that? Lack of identity is our identity; plurality is our unity, multicult is our culture. Selective cultural relativism, rules. Or so we are told.

“An Afghan man who groomed a 14-year-old girl for sexual activity explained that, in his culture, an age gap was “the norm” and there was no minimum age for sexual activity. Mustafa Naseri, 21, thought he was speaking with a teenager over the messaging app Kik in March and July last year. However, the recipient of the messages was in reality an undercover police officer posing as a young person. Naseri this week avoided jail, instead placed on a bond after he pleaded guilty to two grooming offences. In the conversations with the girl, he asked her for a photograph and whether she had reached puberty. Naseri, who arrived in Australia in 2008, later asked if she would meet up and engage in a sexual act with him. A meeting was arranged but he was eventually arrested at a railway station in Adelaide. Sentencing him in the District Court, Judge Geraldine Davison said Naseri told police he was from Afghanistan, where there is no minimum age for sexual activity. He said he started the conversations because he felt bored and lonely.”

Getting Really Serious About Reparations By John Steele

     Although I cover survivalism, I came across this great satirical piece at a martial arts site … or is it? … on reparations. The article tells Americans how to really get into the swing of things. It will dig the ground for what is coming, provably when the Labor Party gets in here, of the Aboriginal referendum, which will breakup Australia, big time. Hey, that’s not just my idea, this intellectual has a clever book on it:
  https://quadrant.org.au/product/hidden-agenda-aboriginal-sovereignty/

“Australian voters are not being told the truth about the proposal for constitutional recognition of indigenous people. The goal of Aboriginal political activists today is to gain ‘sovereignty’ and create a black state, equivalent to the existing states. Its territory, com¬prising all land defined as native title, will soon amount to more than 60 per cent of the whole Australian continent. Constitutional recognition, if passed, would be its ‘launching pad’. Recognition will not make our nation com¬plete; it will divide us permanently.”

Woke Paradoxes of Social Deconstruction By Chris Knight

     There are unexpected problems developing in the US in closing down the police by discriminatory firing of White officers, because Blacks can become collateral damage too, which is just too bad, but when one is dismantling a civilisation, a few eggs have to get broken. Likewise, with making omelettes.
  https://jonathanturley.org/2020/07/17/seattle-city-council-member-suggests-firing-white-officers-in-massive-reduction-of-police-department/

“The Seattle City Council is facing something of a dilemma in its popular pledge to cut the police budget by 50 percent. To do so would require firing a significant number of police officers, which is also popular. The problem is that the firing would be done by seniority and many of the less senior officers are black.  The solution according to City Council member Lisa Herbold is simple: fire officers based on their race.  While that would be the definition of racial discrimination, Herbold clearly believes that it is discrimination for a good cause. The federal courts are likely to disagree.  Most notably, Herbold’s call for racial discrimination against white officers would seek to undue the work of Justice Thurgood Marshall who insisted that racial discrimination unlawful and evil regardless of the race you want to disenfranchise or discriminate against. Seattle Police Chief Carmen Best released a video calling the plan of Herbold and others “completely reckless.” She also sent a letter to Mayor Jenny Durkan warning that dramatic cuts would require the layoff of hundreds of officers. The Police Department also warned that the firings would include many minority officers. Herbold insists that this would be perfectly legal despite the prohibitions under Title VII of the Civil Rights Act of 1964.

Yo! Yo! Lockdown Has to Go! Ask Serbia By James Reed

     Had enough of the corona freak-out? Tired of this oppressive prep for the New World Order? Me too. Then should the country  start going down the Serbia road, since they supply so many migrants, increasing diversity and joy, and who could possibly complain about that? Something to think about, while choking from carbon dioxide poison from my mask, which is an old pair of jeans, I found in the hard rubbish, but now must wear, even while trying to sleep.

“The relentless advance of coronavirus terror has been broken. Recalcitrant Serbs rebelled against their President when he ordered them back under house arrest. After two days of street battles with dozens of policemen hospitalised, the sturdy protesters won; the authorities surrendered and gave up their plans to lock Belgrade down. Shops, pubs and restaurants in Belgrade will have an early evening curfew; but this is much better than the full lockdown they intended. Prime Minister Ms Brnabic complained that she could not understand why her people were protesting. She must be uncommonly dense, this lady, if after two days of protests she could not understand that people do not want lockdowns. This is a rare reversal by the authorities, said the BBC correspondent in Belgrade. This is an understatement in the best English manner. I think it is a precedent. Until now, there were countries that avoided lockdown altogether (Japan, Sweden, Belarus), but there wasn’t a country where people demanded and then obtained their freedom. Serbia is the first one. This small (pop. 7 million) country in the Balkans has a long history of resistance – they fought the Turks for centuries; they resisted Nazi Germany longer than France; they had the strongest guerrilla movement outside of Belarus, and yes, they fought mighty NATO for quite a long time. The Germans bombed Belgrade in April 1941, followed not long afterwards by America (aided by the British of course). In 1944, on Easter Day, six hundred American bombers carpet-bombed Belgrade, destroying its palaces, theatres, railway stations, and hospitals. That was America’s Easter Bunny gift to the Serbs.
