To The Age The "bizarre claims" of English controversialist David Icke are unlikely to gain much support in our land ("Ban on conspiracy theorist Icke", 21/2), and the last minute cancellation of his visa is hardly "a defining moment for who we are as a nation", as Dver Abramovitch has claimed. However, some of Icke's reported views, which clearly offend a powerful lobby, deserve open discussion. It is a pity that, as with the treatment of David Irving in the 1990s, our government has sacrificed the principle of free speech to placate that lobby. Nigel Jackson, Belgrave, Vic
Here is an insightful article on the way that radical divisions are now opening up and swallowing the American Democrats, who are the party of diversity. We see here the future direction which Australia’s own Labor Party will be taking. It is some way bend the Americans, but it is still on the same track, it being just a question of time lines: https://vdare.com/articles/patrick-j-buchanan-will-diversity-be-the-death-of-the-democrats
“Both of America's great national parties are coalitions. But it is the Democratic Party that never ceases to celebrate diversity—racial, religious, ethnic, cultural—as its own and as America's "greatest strength." Understandably so, for the party is home to a multitude of minorities. It is the domain of the LGBTQ movement. In presidential elections, Democrats win 70 percent of Hispanics, Jews and Asian-Americans, and 90 percent of African-Americans. Yet, lately, the party seems to be careening into a virtual war of all against all. Democratic Governor Ralph Northam and Attorney General Mark Herring of Virginia have both admitted to using blackface. Northam imitated Michael Jackson's "moonwalk" in a 1984 dance contest. Herring, in 1980 at the University of Virginia, did a blackface impression of rap icon Kurtis Blow, who called it ugly and degrading. The resignations of both have been demanded by Virginia's black leadership. Northam and Herring, however, are defying the demands.
The universities are now worse than China under Mao, regarding political correctness and surveillance. Here is what one Black “queer” student has proposed at Yale University: https://www.naturalnews.com/2019-02-14-yale-university-newspaper-urges-students-to-surreptitiously-spy-on-white-classmates.html
“[She] recently penned an op-ed calling on all Yale students to spy on their straight, white male classmates in order to collect any “evidence” that might destroy their careers later on in life. Isis Davis-Marks, … held nothing back in expressing her bigoted hatred towards all white males, whom she admittedly and broadly regards as liars and sexual predators. Isis further compared all white males to the Honorable Justice Brett Kavanaugh, whom she personally believes is guilty of past improprieties against women based solely on the unsubstantiated hearsay of Christine Blasey-Ford.
This is how far the West has tumbled down; to the laughable stage, bathos, I think it is called. Now we have a young woman marrying her zombie doll, literally: https://metro.co.uk/2019/02/14/woman-weds-zombie-doll-even-consummated-marriage-8617110/
“A young woman has revealed that her ‘world is now complete’ after getting married to her zombie doll. Felicity Kadlec, 20, said she tied the not with Kelli Rossi (the doll) who she says is 37 years old. The ceremony cost £388 for a wedding dress for Felicity, a suit for Kelly and decorations for the wedding in Tiverton, Rhode Island. The wedding was attended by four humans and eight other dolls. Felicity, who now lives in Vinita, Oklahoma, claims that marrying Kelly has made her feel closer and more intimate with it. Felicity said: ‘Our wedding ceremony was beautiful and perfect – exactly the way I dreamed it would have been. ‘I made sure that the whole wedding was done properly so it would be as official as possible, and we consummated the marriage afterwards. ‘Kelly was the groom as she takes the male role in our relationship, she is a tom boy so wore a suit – I feel she was most comfortable as the groom. ‘Despite having been in a relationship with Kelly for four years, getting married to her has made me feel so much closer to her, both emotionally and intimately.”
Recall how our High court was striking down pollies on the foreign allegiance issue based on section 44? Now it seems things have got a wee bit more complicated as Rod Culleton has taken the matter to the UK supreme court for a ruling: https://cairnsnews.org/2019/02/12/high-court-expulsion-of-senator-culleton-wrong-at-law-uk-supreme-court/
“Culleton advised by UK Supreme Court his senate expulsion was wrong at law leaving the way open for other expelled senators to reclaim their seats. The Supreme Court of the United Kingdom has advised Western Australia Senator-in-exile Rod Culleton the High Court of Australia has erred by removing him from the senate. In January Culleton filed an appeal, contrary to legal advice, against his senate expulsion in the Supreme Court(Privy Council) citing s47 of the Commonwealth Constitution of Australia, which had been ignored by the High Court. This section states: ‘Until the Parliament otherwise provides, any question respecting the qualification of a senator or of a member of the House of Representatives, or respecting a vacancy in either House of the Parliament, and any question of a disputed election to either House, shall be determined by the House in which the question arises.’ The High Court, sitting as the Court of Disputed Returns, expelled him from the senate in 2017 on a referral from then Attorney General, Senator George Brandis. “Preliminary guidance from my case manager in the UK Supreme Court referred me to a legal maxim from a case precedent, Hilary Term  UKSC 3.”
Where do we start in exploring the levels of fake news by the establishment? First, the Douma gas attack footage, used as a justification by the White House for the bombing of Syria, was fake, surprise, surprise: https://www.zerohedge.com/news/2019-02-14/bbc-shocks-douma-gas-attack-scene-staged-producer-says-after-6-month-syria
“Now approaching nearly a year after the April 7, 2018 alleged chemical attack in Douma, Syria — which the White House used as a pretext to bomb Syrian government facilities and bases throughout Damascus — a BBC reporter who investigated the incident on the ground has issued public statements saying the "Assad sarin attack" on Douma was indeed "staged". Riam Dalati is a well-known BBC Syria producer who has long reported from the region. He shocked his nearly 20,000 twitter followers on Wednesday, which includes other mainstream journalists from major outlets, by stating that after a "six month investigation" he has concluded, "I can prove without a doubt that the Douma Hospital scene was staged."
To The Age Chris Uhlmann asks whether Australians are willing to engage in a cowardly silence in the face of communist Chinese aggression towards Chinese people in our land ("Will we pay China's price?", 20/2). Are we prepared to kow tow for trading profits? One would like to say no, but the current moral and ethical confusion in Australia raises doubts about whether we have sufficient integrity to stand against tyranny. In any case, geopolitically we may be in a similar position to the Melians before the might of Athens overwhelmed them, as described by Thucydides. Let's give it a go in the Anzac spirit, anyway. To do so, we will need first class diplomacy to maintain a wall of alliances in south-east Asia to curb China's imperialism. We will also need a conservative and traditionalist renaissance to provide the necessary spine; and that in turn will need a profound religious reformation to bring Christian teaching into harmony with metaphysical truth. What we don't need is left-wing faux idealism, which currently rages like fever in our body politic. Nigel Jackson, Belgrave, Vic
To The Australian David Icke's views that we are subject to control by an alien "lizard people" does not instil confidence in his rationality, but he should be allowed to visit Australia ("Australia 'top pick for hate preachers'", 20/2). This is because we should firmly protect the principle of authentic free speech in our nation. Nor, for the same reason, should terms like "Holocaust denial" or "anti-Semitic hate preachers" be used to close down dissident arguments about the Nazi period of German history. Not all revisionist historians are neo-Nazis or lovers of authoritarian and militaristic governments; and some of their published research appears to have value. Jewish groups would be wiser to avoid inflamed language and concentrate on calling for careful and gracious discussion of matters that affect their interests and on which they are justified in calling for decent and fair-minded commentary rather than rabble-rousing. Nigel Jackson, Belgrave, Vic
20 February 2019,
The Chairman of the Saltbush Club, Mr Jerry Ellis, today warned that Australia needs more reliable baseload power.“With the population and the economy growing, but with electricity availability and reliability in decline, we are racing headlong into a brick wall of blackouts. “Recession and disruption will probably follow, bringing to mind those memorable 1990 words of Paul Keating: ‘This is the recession we had to have’. Except in this case the recession will be self-inflicted. “Much of my working life was in the steel industry in the 1970s and 1980s. It operated 24x7, with large numbers of electric motors requiring a continuous supply of low-cost electrical power. Un-planned interruptions were rare, but when they occurred they were very costly. “Now we face the prospect of planned and unplanned loss of power due to the rundown of base-load power capacity. It must be a nightmare for today’s steelmakers and aluminium refineries facing this growing crisis. “It is essential that Australia rebalances economic imperatives against populist ideas regarding the release of carbon dioxide to the atmosphere. “A strong Australian economy is crucial to Australia’s welfare and will also make a valuable contribution to world prosperity. “Australia produces a tiny proportion of the world’s carbon dioxide. Even total closure of our industry would have no detectable impact on carbon dioxide emissions or global climate. “We urgently need new supplies of reliable energy from coal, gas, hydro or nuclear.” Jerry Ellis was supported by Sir Rod Carnegie, former Managing Director, CEO and Chairman of CRA (Rio Tinto) who said: “It is essential that Australia regains its reputation for cheap reliable electricity or we will lose our manufacturing and refining industries, returning only to our backbone industries of agriculture and mining”.
Having one’s race, place and nation subjected to passive genocide, can be stressful for the few remaining individuals who are not brain dead. So, what can be done for the individual to mentally survive? The Japanese have an answer, and it is known as “forest bathing,” and it can be done without getting wet: https://blueheronhealthnews.com/site/2019/01/12/forest-bathing-cures-high-blood-pressure-and-other-diseases-2/?tt=newsletter
“Forest therapy refers to the practice of walking in a forest and soaking up the atmosphere, smelling the trees and air, looking at the flowers, listening to the streams and the wind through the trees, noticing the individual bird species, feeling the leaves and roots under your feet, and so forth. The Japanese call this forest bathing, not because you swim in a forest stream, but because you immerse yourself in nature. Aside from being a pleasant pastime, many studies are now concluding that it might be a useful medical therapy for a wide range of conditions. Some Japanese doctors even prescribe it as an adjunct treatment for diseases, such as high blood pressure and diabetes. Since stress contributes to so many diseases, one of the most frequently studied effects of forest therapy is its effects on stress reduction. For example, Japanese researchers published a study in the journal Public Health in 2007 that investigated the psychological effects of this therapy. They surveyed 498 volunteers twice on the forest-walking day and twice on the control day, during which they did not visit the forest. They concluded that forest walking reduced stress; the higher the stress levels, the larger the reduction.”
Pardon the French, but do you recall President Trump rattling on some time back, that he did not want migrants from sh*thole countries, and how the media responded to his play acting? Well, the US, and most of the West are coming to be that, quite literally: https://www.zerohedge.com/news/2019-02-13/rats-public-defecation-open-drug-use-our-major-western-cities-are-becoming
“Those that must live among the escalating decay are often numb to it, but most of those that are just in town for a visit are absolutely shocked by all of the trash, human defecation, crime and public drug use that they encounter. Once upon a time, our beautiful western cities were the envy of the rest of the world, but now they serve as shining examples of America’s accelerating decline. The worst parts of our major western cities literally look like post-apocalyptic wastelands, and the hordes of zombified homeless people that live in those areas are too drugged-out to care. The ironic thing is that these cities are not poor. In fact, San Francisco and Seattle are among the wealthiest cities in the entire nation. So, if things are falling apart this dramatically now, how bad will things get when economic conditions really start to deteriorate? Let’s start our discussion by looking at the rat epidemic in Los Angeles. Thanks to extremely poor public sanitation, rats are breeding like mad, and at this point they have even conquered Los Angeles City Hall…
The Pill, or combined oral contraceptive pill, was made available in the US in 1960, and Australia, not long after. It is widely admitted now that it was a catalyst for the sexual revolution of the 1960s, as well as giving biochemical backing to feminism, as women, they say, could control their fertility, meaning, not have babies, and instead, work like slaves in the capitalist, Satanic paper mills. None of the enormous social consequences that came from this piece of evil technology were discussed, let alone debated at the time; this technology was simply marketed, like most technology. However, it would only take one seminar discussion group in 1959, to see that this chemical would turn traditional society upside down. Of course, that was the plan. Nothing has contributed more to the crashing White birth-rates than the Pill. If one wanted White genocide, done passively, this was the way to go. But, as well, the Pill has had a major impact of Black birth-rates as well, so the agenda is wider than White social control and eradication. What may not have been anticipated, beyond the demonic social ethno-racial agenda, was health side effects, and these have been not merely physical: https://www.medicaldaily.com/contraceptive-pills-have-mental-side-effects-too-study-finds-429751
“More than 100 million women around the world use oral contraceptives. Over the years, research has been able to explore and identify much of their physical effects, but what about their psychological effects? Dr. Alexander Lischke of the University of Greifswald, Germany, notes how "remarkably little" is known about the effects of birth control pills on emotion, cognition, and behavior. As part of a new study, published in Frontiers in Neuroscience, Lischke and his research team recruited 95 healthy women — 42 of whom were on the pill and 53 who were not — for an emotion recognition task. The aim was to find out if using the pill could have any sort of impairment on their ability to recognize emotions. "We assumed that these impairments would be very subtle, indicating that we had to test women's emotion recognition with a task that was sensitive enough to detect such impairments," he explained. "We, thus, used a very challenging emotion recognition task that required the recognition of complex emotional expressions from the eye region of faces."
George Soros is worried about whether on not “Europe” will survive, what with all of those terrible nationalist/populist types. You see, “Europe” for George is defined as non-White, and based purely on eternal immigration. What we might call “Europe,” based upon traditional understandings, is simply rejected by him. https://www.foxnews.com/world/george-soros-says-europe-is-on-cusp-of-a-nightmare-as-right-wing-parties-set-to-win-big-in-european-election.amp
“Left-wing billionaire George Soros, in a rare op-ed, has fired a warning shot to what he describes as the “sleeping pro-European majority” ahead of the European Parliament elections in May -- saying Europe needs to "wake up before it is too late" and before nationalist parties take control. “Europe is sleepwalking into oblivion, and the people of Europe need to wake up before it is too late,” the Hungarian-American financier, known for his promotion of left-wing policies, he wrote for Project Syndicate. Soros is something of a bogeyman in right-wing circles due to his funding of left-wing causes both in Europe and the U.S. Hungary’s nationalist government recently passed a “Stop Soros” package to curtail his activities via his Open Society Foundations -- including a measure making it illegal for non-governmental organizations (NGOs) to organize illegal immigration into the country. Last year, British media reported that Soros had delivered $560,000 to an anti-Brexit campaign, leading to accusations from Brexiteers that he was part of an international plot to stop Brexit and bring down the government. But with nationalist and right-wing parties on the rise in Europe, Soros is setting off alarm bells of his own. In his op-ed, he claims that “anti-European forces” will have a competitive advantage in May, when lawmakers to the European Parliament will be elected. He blames the “outdated party system” and “the lack of legal tools for disciplining member states that violate the principles on which the European Union was founded.”
No wonder George Soros is worried; Hungary is trying to do what nations should, support the local population with pro-family policies, rather than try and replace them by mad mass immigration: https://www.breitbart.com/europe/2019/02/11/exclusive-hungary-rejects-mass-migration-prefers-pro-family-policy/ https://www.breitbart.com/europe/2019/02/11/we-need-hungarian-children-orban-tax-breaks-families/
“Hungarian foreign minister Péter Szijjártó has described how his country has rejected multiculturalism and mass migration and as a solution to demographic and labour market challenges, favouring a more socially cohesive society and policies which support local people to raise their own families and up-skill. “We have made it very clear during the debate in the European Union that we do not consider migration as a proper answer to our challenges regarding demography, or our challenges regarding the labour market,” the Hungarian told Breitbart News Deputy Political Editor Amanda House in an exclusive interview. “When it comes to demography, we would rather support our families to be able to raise more kids, and not to make it an economic decision whether to have another kid or not,” he explained. Szijjártó described some of the policies the Fidesz-KDNP government under Prime Minister Viktor Orbán to support natural population growth as an alternative to mass migration, some fairly standard — free kindergarten, school books and meals, and so on — and others more creative, such as a “taxation system which favours the family.” For example, he described how “in case of raising three kids and having a salary around the average, you are basically exempt from paying personal income tax; you can get good tax exemptions if you build a house or buy one if you have kids in the family.”
We are constantly told as part of the brainwashing, that the nation would crash and burn without immigration. Thus, if all migrants were suddenly transferred to another planet by an evil demon, then we would all die. Yet, that is counter-intuitive, since we can still make the essentials for life, and quite well in fact. Do we really need even half of the junk presently sold in shops? Indeed, Australia could be completely self-reliant if we were not addicted to the techno-consumer society, and we should have gone down this road of autarky, rather than the globalist road of national oblivion. Anyway, here is material about a US study, that shows that he US could also do well by getting out of the mass immigration madhouse, consumer society taken along for the ride: https://www.breitbart.com/politics/2019/02/10/study-ending-all-legal-immigration-40-years-maintains-u-s-workforce/
“The United States could suspend all legal immigration to the country for the next 40 years and maintain a workforce where there are still more than two U.S. workers for every one retiree, a new study finds. The latest study by the Center for Immigration Studies’ Steven Camarota reveals that despite claims by the big business lobby, Wall St., and corporate executives that mass legal immigration is necessary to maintain a sizeable workforce, current legal immigration trends have little to no impact on the working-age population. The workforce population is generally measured by the ratio showing the number of U.S. workers per every one retiree. Camerota’s research finds that if the U.S. implemented an immigration moratorium for the next 40 years, it would hardly have an impact on the number of workers per retirees. … The ratio of U.S. workers per retiree would be little changed if lawmakers halted legal immigration for 40 years. With current legal immigration levels, the U.S. is on track to have about 2.5 workers per retiree by 2060. Should legal immigration be halted, the U.S. would have about 2.1 workers per retiree by 2060, a subtle difference in the working-age population.”
It is either national suicide, the desire for self-annihilation, or just another screw up, or perhaps a Deep State conspiracy, but the US is supplying weapons to terrorists, that in turn are used against the US: https://edition.cnn.com/interactive/2019/02/middleeast/yemen-lost-us-arms/
“Saudi Arabia and its coalition partners have transferred American-made weapons to al Qaeda-linked fighters, hardline Salafi militias, and other factions waging war in Yemen, in violation of their agreements with the United States, a CNN investigation has found. The weapons have also made their way into the hands of Iranian-backed rebels battling the coalition for control of the country, exposing some of America's sensitive military technology to Tehran and potentially endangering the lives of US troops in other conflict zones. Saudi Arabia and the United Arab Emirates, its main partner in the war, have used the US-manufactured weapons as a form of currency to buy the loyalties of militias or tribes, bolster chosen armed actors, and influence the complex political landscape, according to local commanders on the ground and analysts who spoke to CNN. By handing off this military equipment to third parties, the Saudi-led coalition is breaking the terms of its arms sales with the US, according to the Department of Defense.
To The Australian No treaty with descendants of the Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples should be signed by any government ("Treaty 'won't lead people astray'", 19/2). There is no justification for such an action and it would be against the interests and will of the great majority of the Australian people. The fact is that the tribes living on this continent in the 18th century were unable to defend their territories from the incoming settlers and lost control of them. This failure cannot be reversed two centuries later. Misleadingly calling those tribes "First Nations" does not alter reality or trump constitutional propriety. No referendum to establish any kind of separatism has any hope of succeeding. The Prime Minister will win masses of votes at the coming elections if he simply guarantees that there will be no constitutional change of any kind under a Coalition government without a fairly conducted and successful referendum having been held first. He will be defending our security and political stability. Nigel Jackson, Belgrave, Vic
I have always been amazed at a trend in Freedom Movement types to think that if they can simply get in front of a judge and argue for something, like, I don’t owe the banks anything because the banks create credit from nothing, and that they will win given enough books and references. It does not work that way, as numerous people have found out. The legal system by definition acts to preserve the status quo. This is even true with cases like Mabo, because the status quo was changing in the direction of political correctness then, so the decision was completely in line with what the elites wanted. Anyway, argued below, South Africa is a good counter-example to legal fetishism: https://www.amren.com/commentary/2018/12/attention-conservatives-the-constitution-wont-save-you/
“American conservatives have a touching faith in the power of written guarantees and legal codes to safeguard traditional liberties. This confidence in legalism is probably a product of America’s Anglo-Saxon heritage, but as demographics change, paper assurances of fundamental rights are likely to yield to the wishes of tribally orientated non-whites. In response, American conservatives may cling even more tightly to the founding documents: “At least I still have the Constitution,” as the popular meme reads. A look at current events in South Africa shows that demographic change can sweep aside even the most solemn constitutional guarantees. By an overwhelming majority, South Africa’s National Assembly recently approved the formation of a committee that will draft a constitutional change permitting expropriation of land without compensation. During the debate, an MP from the Economic Freedom Fighters party declared, “Your time is up, white people.”
It is an amazing double standard; President Trump is held accountable for all sorts of fantastic bs, such as the continuing lie about Russian interference with Hillary Clinton, a horrible thought, but Democrats can lie through their teeth, and get a pat on their heads: https://bigleaguepolitics.com/evidence-rashida-tlaib-lied-about-residency-to-run-for-office-registered-to-vote-at-false-address/
“Michigan Democrat congresswoman Rashida Tlaib registered to vote from a false address, and represented a state House district that she did not actually live in, according to credit score and property records obtained by Big League Politics. Tlaib’s own father even said that Tlaib “lied” about her address in order to run for office. Here is what the evidence, presented below, proves:
Natural News.com, has been publishing a series of articles, basically making the case that the establishment is literally Satanic, that there is a connection between paedophilic activities and the elites. Maybe all this goes too far, but who knows? We certainly won’t know unless we can debate this. Now, here comes the censor: https://www.naturalnews.com/2019-02-11-apple-demands-natural-news-stop-writing-about-abortions-or-satanism.html
“In a series of shocking “demand” emails containing screen captures showing lists of Natural News articles, Apple has demanded Natural News stop publishing articles critical of abortions or Satanism, threatening to block the Natural News app from all Apple devices if Apple’s demands are not met. This is the first time that a dominant tech company has overtly come out in defense of Satanism while threatening to censor a prominent publisher that exposes the evils of Satanic influence. Many people will see this as yet more proof that Apple, along with other tech giants, is literally aligned with Satan and is exploiting its power of censorship to silence those who criticize Satanism. With Democrats now openly pushing infanticide and the legalization of the serial killing of infants, tech giants like Apple are serving as the censorship “speech police” to silence all criticism of the gruesome practice. In threatening Natural News over our coverage of infanticide and abortions, Apple is staking out the position of being pro-infanticide, and anyone who dares to speak up for innocent children is deemed by Apple to be engaged in “hate speech.”
