Letter to The Editor - We need a more scrupulous as well as a more open debate to precede any referendum

To The Australian        In her promotion of a practical referendum for Aboriginal constitutional recognition ("Referendum must be practical, not symbolic", 7/2) Shirleen Morris misrepresents the nature of conservative opposition to any such recognition. It is not that there is a fear of "legal uncertainty", but that the whole idea is seen as dangerously divisive and powered by a long-term plan for total separatism involving two discrete national states on this continent. The project is clearly against the interests of the great majority of Australians. Morris also misidentifies its conservative opponents. Those she names are all supporters of constitutional change. The real conservatives are those who oppose any separatist policies, including the enacting of treaties. We need a more scrupulous as well as a more open debate to precede any referendum; and the government must ensure that the "No" case is fairly represented and funded.

Dark Ages Will be Really Dark (Like, No Lights On!) By James Reed

     There are an increasing number of  essays on the internet, arguing against the popular trend in thought that the fall of Ancient Rome was not a catastrophe, but rather that the barbarian migrants integrated into Roman society, merely transforming it. Wow, does that view tell us something about the politics of today, or what! The most important book arguing against this happy face view of collapse is by Oxford don, Bryan Ward-Perkins, The Fall of Rome and the End of Civilization (Oxford University press, 2006). Assembled there is a wealth of evidence showing that the standard of living in Rome after the fall, was that of prehistoric times. It was cultural and technological catastrophe, involving a great die off of thousands.

     Thus, dark ages were really dark. This is important for us, because there is a strong case that the West is the modern Rome, and that we are heading into the same horrors, indeed, greater horrors, that will sink us. Almost all of the factors that brought Rome down, are here, right now.

Migrant Rocket Scientists Save Boomer Pensions (Not) By Richard Miller

     It was the claim of murky Merkle that the influx of refugees, mainly men, would solve Germany’s employment problem. Sure, as if they do not age. But, regardless of that:
  https://www.dw.com/en/germanys-bamf-looks-to-southern-europe-for-skilled-labor/a-52225546

“A lack of education is making it hard for refugees from developing countries to integrate into Germany's skilled labor market. An estimated 17% of participants in German integration courses are illiterate. The head of  Germany's Federal Office for Migration and Refugees (BAMF), Hans-Eckhard Sommer, said that integrating refugees into Germany's labor market will be a difficult task, and called for Germany to focus on attracting skilled labor from countries in southern Europe. In an interview with Germany's Rheinische Post newspaper published on Saturday, Sommer said that there are many jobless, well-educated young people in Southern Europe who would be "considerably easier" to integrate. On March 1, the German government will implement a skilled labor immigration law intended to make it easier for highly qualified foreigners to work in Germany. Under EU law, there are no legal barriers for EU citizens to work in other countries in the 27-member bloc. "I think we should concentrate harder on recruiting professionals from Europe," said Sommer.

Vegan on the Brain By Mrs Vera West

     The vegan diet, no meats, animal products etc. is promoted as healthy and increasing the life span by its supporters, if you call that living. But, what about the effects of this diet on your brain?
  https://www.bbc.com/future/article/20200127-how-a-vegan-diet-could-affect-your-intelligence

“The idea that avoiding meat is bad for our brains makes some intuitive sense; anthropologists have been arguing about what our ancestors ate for decades, but many scientists think that there was a lot of bone-crunching and brain-slurping on the road to evolving these remarkable 1.4kg (3lb) organs. Some have even gone so far as to say that meat made us human. One reason is that intelligence is expensive – the brain devours about 20% of our daily calories, though it accounts for just 2% of our body weight – and what better way to find the enormous array of fats, amino acids, vitamins and minerals these fastidious organs require, than by feasting on animals which have already painstakingly collected or made them. … On the one hand, recent concern about the nutritional gaps in plant-based diets has led to a number of alarming headlines, including a warning that they can stunt brain development and cause irreversible damage to a person’s nervous system. Back in 2016, the German Society for Nutrition went so far as to categorically state that – for children, pregnant or nursing women, and adolescents – vegan diets are not recommended, which has been backed up by a 2018 review of the research. After the Royal Academy of Medicine in Belgium decided a vegan diet was “unsuitable” for children, parents who force a vegan diet on their offspring in Belgium could even one day find themselves in prison.

Furthest Right; Right to the End of the Number Line, and Beyond By Peter West

     Here is an interesting piece from American Dissent Right intellectual Brett Stevens, who is doing some fundamental rethinking about the future of, well, everything. In particular, he sees mainstream conservatism as dead, and the need for white folk to forge a new philosophy of life, or return to an old one, distilling conservativism down to its essence:
  http://www.amerika.org/politics/furthest-right/

“To address those many details, one needs a unifying system of thought based on a simple idea. The Left has equality, which is basically “me first” anarchy with grocery stores. The Right has the notion of preserving that which works best from any age. If you had to state those as simply as possible, the Left is the pro-human position and the Right is the pro-nature position. We believe that the order of nature is superior to that of humankind; we recognize that humankind fits within nature and not vice versa; we do not trust individualism, but prefer orders on levels above the individual like logic, fact, history, nature, culture, and the divine. The difficulty with being conservative comes from the two meanings of conservative. We know what conservatism has been in abstraction, which designates the continuity of meaning it has had throughout history, but then there is conservatism as instance, or the public mainstream conservatives that we see in the Republican Party and the type of half-Trotskyist, half-Libertarian nonsense they peddle. To be Furthest Right requires that one accept conservatism as a core idea, which is that we reject the human in favor of time, logic, and fact. That means less reliance on the symbolic, social, and emotional bubble in which most people live, and more focus on what works. Conservatism consists of two planks: realism and transcendence. This takes us away from utilitarianism, or choosing our future actions by what most humans say they think is best, and all symbolic ideologies.

5G and Sperm By Brian Simpson

     Much has been said about the ill-effects of 5G technology, but maybe the fact that sperms are going to get toasted, might make some rams of the sheeple flock, think:
  https://www.technocracy.news/scientists-5g-network-could-lower-sperm-counts-and-sterilize-young-men/

“There are fears that increased levels of radiation in the UK as 5G coverage spreads across the country could seriously impact human fertility levels. The rollout of the high-speed network, which was launched in Britain in May last year, has sparked protests from those who believe higher levels of electro-magnetic radiation (EMR) in the atmosphere are dangerous and 5G’s potential health effects need to be tested. A letter presented to Downing Street last week urged Prime Minister Boris Johnson to open an inquiry into “establishing the true impact of wireless communication systems on the health of the UK population”. “We are extremely concerned by the vulnerability of our young and very young people to the harmful effects of pulsed RF radiation,” read the letter which was handed over along with two petitions, one of which was signed by 268 physicians and scientists. “Study upon study is showing that this non-ionising radiation is causing oxidative DNA damage in cellular systems and this may be particularly harmful to the reproductive system of young boys, adolescents and young men.” Sperm counts among British men have fallen by 29% in the last decade. Multiple international studies have found a link between increased mobile phone use and a drop in both the quantity and quality of sperm. A 2016 review by the Society for Reproduction and Fertility reported that of 27 studies investigating the effects of mobile phone EMR on the male reproductive system, 21 resulted in negative consequences of exposure. In a 2018 article called ‘Wi-Fi is an important threat to human health’ which was published in the journal Environmental Research, Dr Martin Pall from Washington State University cites a 1997 experiment with chilling results. Two pairs of young mice were placed into cages with different levels of exposure to a functioning antenna, although the exposure levels at both sites were well within safety guidelines. The pair in the cage with a higher exposure level produced one litter of smaller than normal babies, a second litter with fewer than normal babies, and demonstrated infertility or very low fertility from this point on. The pair exposed to a lower level of EMR produced four litters with fewer numbers of babies each time, before they became completely infertile.

Why is Israel Ceasing Fluoridation of its Water? By Mrs Vera West

     Israel is one nation that has it together, and when it makes some radical change, it would be wise to analyse it. Take fluoride in the water for example:
  https://www.timesofisrael.com/israel-to-discontinue-fluoridation-of-tap-water/?fbclid=IwAR2Hodyj7Wbel8zCdVvkTxZ599fhy7Gw_SOgcXutzVe0hLFLYp25OPnuD6E&mc_cid=f4960f4a12&mc_eid=d3d8da2276

“Israeli tap water will no longer contain fluoride after Tuesday, following a decree by Health Minister Yael German earlier this month discontinuing the practice. The decision has been lauded by various rights groups, but criticized by many in the medical and dental communities as a serious mistake. Fluoride is commonly added to national water supplies by governments throughout the world in order to prevent tooth decay, but critics say overconsumption of the invisible, odorless, tasteless gas is a health hazard. Despite the widespread fluoridation, German, a member of the Yesh Atid party, has made no secret about her disdain for the practice. During her tenure as mayor of Herzliya, she successfully stopped the national government from fluoridating the city’s water supply. Shortly after she was appointed health minister in 2013, she announced her plans to end public fluoridation once and for all. However, following a wave of backlash from public health experts and government officials, including Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu, she mandated that fluoridation would only continue for population centers that opted for the program. The program, which had been opted into by local authorities of 5.3 million residents, has no longer become optional, as German officially announced her decision to discontinue fluoridation on August 26.”

Coronavirus as a Bioweapon By Brian Simpson

     I am updating here the coronavirus pandemic today’s news. The view that this is a dud disease is refuted by rising death tolls in China, with the commo authorities hiding the real number of dead:
  https://www.zerohedge.com/geopolitical/president-xi-warns-ncov-outbreak-threatens-stability-top-who-official-disputes

“Local Chinese authorities have just lost the ability to pick up corpses due to a breakdown in government,” said Gordon Chang, a well-known expert on China on “Tucker Carlson Tonight.” “So really what we are having right now is, they are completely overwhelmed,” Chang added. “They are not able to keep accurate statistics. So what we are witnessing is essentially a breakdown in government and keeping accurate statistics is a very minor part of their priorities right now.” Chang said that while he understands the preventative measure, he believes the quarantine has “made the problem worse.” “I can understand why they want to quarantine but remember, the Wuhan mayor said about 5 million people from his city left before the quarantine was imposed,” he said. “Also right now the quarantine has aggravated a problem and that is [that] people can’t get to hospitals, so they are at home…they are dying.” “They are infecting other people in their households because they are not, in a sense, quarantined from wives, husbands, brothers, sisters,” he continued. “The quarantine has made the problem worse. It’s also created panic. That panic has had consequences on, for instance, social cohesion which is absolutely necessary if you want to beat an epidemic.”

Solve UK Knife Violence with Swords!! By Richard Miller

     Every day here are new horror stories from sad old dying England about knife crime.
  https://kfgo.com/news/articles/2020/feb/03/man-shot-dead-by-uk-police-wanted-girlfriend-to-behead-her-parents/980881/

     The solution by the authorities has been to ban knives. Also, firms are producing knives without points, which does not seem to have a point if knives are banned, and as if a point cannot be ground into such a pointy knife, or steel found, and made pointy. Get the point? No, the answer to the knife problem is to go one level up, and issue permits for ordinary folk to carry swords and other medieval weapons, including wearing chain mail! There is no doubt that guns would solve the problem, but the cucked British are not up to that. Anyway, people who had guns, being attacked are likely to be as bad a shots as police, and thus hit city shoppers. But, going medieval may appeal to them. Short swords trump the pathetic kitchen knives used by attackers, and even a half decent fighting Bowie or kukri, would make most of these attacker’s wet their pants. Knife fighting training centres could be set up in supermarkets, creating employment.

Every. Single. One By Bruce Bennett

     I wondered how long before we saw Aussie Hollywood star Chris Hemsworth came out and say something politically correct, and now I don’t have to wait any more.

“Aussie actor Chris Hemsworth has spoken out on Australia Day, saying he thinks the national holiday should be moved. The Hollywood actor, 36, and resident of Byron Bay posted to his almost 40 million Instagram followers, sharing his view that January 26 marks a day of “such pain, sorrow and deep loss” for First Nations people. “What if we made this day about reflection and respect for the oldest surviving civilisation, how they may be feeling and come together with solidarity, love and empathy,” Hemsworth asked in the post that’s been liked more than 480,000 times. “We should stand together united in our commitment to reconciliation. Changing the date is the first step. “No one loses anything but a lot of people benefit greatly. Love you all.”

Overseas Students and Exploding Migration By James Reed

     One only needs to take a stroll through the Australian universities during term time to see the migration link. One could be in China or India. But here is research that goes far beyond such crude empiricism from 2019, Bob Birrell, Overseas Students are Driving Australia’s Net Overseas Migration Tide.
  https://tapri.org.au/wp-content/uploads/2019/04/Overseas-students-are-driving-NOM-final-18-April-2019.pdf

“There is widespread awareness that overseas students are a large and growing presence in Australia. But few observers would know that by 2017-18 overseas students were the largest contributor to Australia’s very high level of Net Overseas Migration (NOM). According to Australian Bureau of Statistics (ABS) estimates, overseas students comprised 104,987 of the overall level of NOM of 236,733 in 2017- 18. That’s 44 per cent of total NOM. Overseas students holding higher education visas were the dominant source of this contribution to NOM. (See definition of NOM on pp. 1-2.) Nor would many observers be aware that, over the six years from 2011-12 to 2017-18, overseas students were by far the largest growth point in Australia’s NOM. Their contribution increased from 25,700 in 2011-12 to 104,987 in 2017-18 . In the absence of the increasing contribution of overseas students, Australia’s NOM would have declined to around 150,000. Reductions in NOM over these years from New Zealanders and those on temporary work visas (among others – see Table 2) were swamped by the rising tide of overseas students. The student share of NOM in 2017-18 of 104,987 was far greater than that attributable to movements of those holding permanent residence visas – which was 68,850 in 2017-18 (see Table 1). Yet almost all the recent debate about the size of NOM and the Coalition government’s proposals to deal with the scale of NOM has focussed on the permanent resident component.

Letter to The Editor - The Roman share in the guilt for an unjust execution is clearly stated

To The Australian     Christians are entitled to query the "unreserved" nature of the apology published by Carey Grammar senior chaplain Gerry Riviere ("School apology for 'anti-Semitic' slur", 4/2). His original statements, which drew adverse criticism, appear to be in accord with the gospel texts in the Bible and in no way can be fairly interpreted as holding that "the Jewish people as a whole" can be "held responsible for the death of Jesus." The Gospels themselves are not anti-Jewish. Their central figure, the adored Saviour, is Jewish. So are his followers. Moreover, the Roman share in the guilt for an unjust execution is clearly stated. This latest episode shows that in the contemporary world some Jews are too demanding and some Christians too yielding.

Why Should I Care if All the Insects Die? By James Reed

     Suffering form conservation/diversity overload, news of the insects dying out, just bores me, when Northern Europeans are set to die out, in the Great Replacement. Why, I am dying out now, too poor to even get my teeth fixed, swallowing cheap painkillers all day.  Should I really care what survives? OK, there will be famine from lack of plant fertilisation, disruption to the ecosystems and other roll-on effects, if we can believe the so-called science, but since much of it comes from the UN and globalists, I am honour bound to reject the claims without reading them, just as our claims are ignored.
  https://www.dw.com/en/insect-apocalypse-dying-ecosystem-species-loss-a-52160360/a-52160360

“Conservationists say fears of an insect apocalypse, Armageddon and absolute extinction are overblown, but acting now could save populations that are plummeting. Seven 'no-regret' actions could rescue insects on the road to extinction, a new roadmap for conservation says, helping ecosystems even where a lack of research means scientists cannot prove benefits to individual species. Earth's biodiversity is declining at unprecedented rates but population data on insects — which are small, diverse and abundant — is patchy. Instead of waiting to fill knowledge gaps, 75 experts writing in the journal Nature Ecology and Evolution are calling for immediate actions that also improve ecosystems and wider society. Short-term measures such as phasing out pesticides and diversifying farmland could set struggling insect species on a path to recovery while better data is collected. "We reap what we sow," said Jeff Harvey, ecologist at the Netherlands Institute of Ecology and lead author of the roadmap. "It's a no-brainer that decline of insects will affect other species in the food chain… We can't just put little bandages on this." 'Insectageddon' Last year, a global review published in the journal Biological Conservation spawned headlines heralding an "insect apocalypse," "Armageddon" and "collapse of nature" when it found 40% of insect species would face the threat of extinction within decades.”

What Japan Should do with the Fukushima Waste By James Reed

     Japan at present is very generous in pumping nuclear waste from the Fukushima power station into the public commons of the ocean. We will all thank them for turning us into Marvel superheroes in the future, but in the meantime, surely there are better ways of using this valuable resource? How about canning it, maybe in ultra-thick lead cans, and making some sort of soda pop out of it, with photos of pretty anime girls all over the lead can?
  https://www.independent.co.uk/environment/japan-nuclear-waste-fukushima-power-station-tsunami-water-sea-olympics-a9312246.html?utm_source=reddit.com?utm_source=amerika.org

“Massive amounts of radioactive water being stored at Japan’s Fukushima power plant could be released into the sea under plans provisionally accepted by the country’s government. Tokyo Electric has collected nearly 1.2 million tonnes of contaminated water from cooling pipes used to keep fuel cores from melting since the plant was devastated by the earthquake and tsunami which hit eastern Japan in 2011. The water, containing 62 radioactive elements, is stored in huge tanks on the site of the now disabled power plant, but Tokyo Electric has said it will run out of room to store the water by 2022. The water has been treated and Tokyo Electric said it is able to remove all radioactive particles from the water to levels not harmful to humans, except tritium, an isotope of hydrogen which is more difficult to separate from water. A panel of experts working for Japan’s economy and industry ministry concluded that letting the water run into the sea was the best option after looking at other proposals. The only other viable option considered was to let the water evaporate.”

Boy, You’ve Got to Carry that Weight! By James Reed

     Good old Scomo, or is it Bozo, our prime monster, sorry, minister, is not taking any of this climate change nonsense, and has said that we in Oz are already carrying our weight on carbon emissions.
  https://www.theguardian.com/environment/2020/jan/29/australia-already-carrying-its-load-on-emissions-and-must-adapt-to-warmer-climate-pm-says

“The prime minister, Scott Morrison, has rejected suggestions Australia could increase its international advocacy on climate change, saying the country is already “carrying its load” and must adapt to a warmer climate regardless of emissions policy. After indicating that the government would “evolve” its climate change policies to address heightened concerns about the role of global warming in Australia’s ongoing bushfire crisis, Morrison used a keynote speech at the National Press Club on Wednesday to talk up the government’s current policies, including its emission reduction targets. “We know that Australia on its own cannot control the world’s climate as Australia accounts for just 1.3% of global emissions,” Morrison said. “We also know that no fire event can be attributed to the actions of any one country on emissions reduction. But Australia must play its part and we are playing our part. Taking action is agreed – our action, though, is a balanced and responsible emissions reduction plan. “The science tells us the effects of emissions already in the atmosphere will continue to be felt in coming decades, even under the most ambitious global emissions reduction scenarios.” When asked if the government could “step up and advocate” for more ambitious global action on climate change given its role as a “proud middle power”, Morrison said Australia was already doing enough. “Australia is carrying its load and more. We are doing what you would expect a country like Australia to do, but what I won’t do is this: I am not going to sell out Australians – I am not going to sell out Australians based on the calls from some to put higher taxes on them or push up their electricity prices or to abandon their jobs and their industries,” he said. The prime minister also said the government’s target of a cut of 26% to 28% of 2005 emission levels by 2030 was “set”, but he repeated claims that Australia was on track to “meet and beat” its target.  Department of Environment data suggests national emissions will be 16% below 2005 levels by 2030, well short of the minimum 26% goal. The government is using carryover credits from the Kyoto protocol to make up the difference.”

Are Viruses Racist? By Brian Simpson

     I formulate this idea when reading the following speculations at vDare.com, which noted that all of the people dying from the coronavirus are Han Chinese.
  https://vdare.com/articles/do-you-know-all-coronavirus-victims-appear-to-be-chinese-thought-not?scroll_to_paragraph=5

“In fact, as far as I can tell, all of the confirmed cases have been of Chinese people. According to Sri Lankan radio, the case in Sri Lanka was a “Chinese tourist” [Sri Lanka suspends visa on arrival for Chinese travellers after confirmed case of Corona virus, News On Air, January 28, 2020]. So are the cases in France and the one in the United Arab Emirates [Coronavirus is spreading as FIVE people in France are now confirmed to have the illness and Chinese traveller from Wuhan is quarantined in Finland, by Sam Blanchard, Mail Online, January 29, 2020]. If it is true that only East Asians are dying of, or even catching, Corona, that would be consistent with long-established race differences in the susceptibility to such viruses. This has been explored in a fascinating study, by a group of Chinese researchers led by C. L. Chen of Soochow University, entitled: Ethnic differences in susceptibilities to A(H1N1) flu [African Journal of Biotechnology, 2009]. The authors begin by noting that, from an evolutionary perspective, there is every reason to expect there to be ethnic or race differences in the susceptibility to different pathogens. Races—or, as they call them, “ethnic groups”—are breeding populations, long-separated, usually by geography, who are, therefore, genetic clusters adapted to different ecologies. Because they were exposed to different pathogens in prehistory, there are very likely to be race differences in susceptibility to the pathogens and in how well the immune system can fight them.

The Mistake Made by Asians with Masks By Brian Simpson

     It is surprising that the magazine American Renaissance (“Asians are soooo much smarter than us”) is not jumping up to advise, but I guess they feel no need to, knowing their place in the great chain of being. I have in mind face masks, and anyone walking around town, waiting for the inevitable zombie apocalypse will see many friendly people donning surgical masks. But these are useless against air borne viruses:
  https://www.livescience.com/face-mask-new-coronavirus.html

“Can wearing a medical face mask protect you against the new coronavirus? It's a question many people, including pet owners who are putting canine face masks on their dogs, are asking. If it's a regular surgical face mask, the answer is "no," Dr. William Schaffner, an infectious-disease specialist at Vanderbilt University in Tennessee, told Live Science. A more specialized mask, known as an N95 respirator, can protect against the new coronavirus, also called 2019-nCoV. The respirator is thicker than a surgical mask, but Schaffner doesn't recommend it for public use, at least not at this point. That's because, in part, it's challenging to put these masks on and wear them for long periods of time, he said. Specialists receive retraining annually on how to properly fit these respirators around the nose, cheeks and chin, ensuring that wearers don't breathe around the edges of the respirator. "When you do that, it turns out that the work of breathing, since you're going through a very thick material, is harder. You have to work to breathe in and out. It's a bit claustrophobic. It can get moist and hot in there," Schaffner said. "I know that I can wear them when I need to for about a half-hour," he added. "But then I have to go out of the isolation room, take it off and take some deep breaths, kind of cool off, before I can go back in." While it is possible to buy the N95 respirator online, Schaffner advised against it. For one thing, there are just seven cases of coronavirus in the United States at this point. Meanwhile, influenza will infect, hospitalize and even kill thousands upon thousands of Americans this year, but most people aren't thinking of taking the same precautions for that illness, he said. Furthermore, while there is no shortage of the respirators now, there could be if too many people unnecessarily buy one, Schaffner said.”

The Coronavirus, A New World Order Plot! By James Reed

     Why didn’t we say this, or rather why didn’t I? Too much biology from science teacher Brian Simpson, and not enough good old-fashioned conspiracy. Me: I love a good conspiracy in the morning:
  https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Jts9suWIDlU

     No sooner had I bought new tin foil for my bald head, when after Richard Wolstencroft’s Report from Tiger Mountain (20), where he convinced me, and I don’t take much convincing, that the bushfires were a globalist conspiracy, he has a new report that the coronavirus is a New World Order “plot,” his term. Yes, I say! The globalists will use every piece of driftwood that floats their way for their agenda. Global cooling would have been even better than global warming for example. I mean, in a new ice age shouldn’t we all be together for “warmth”?
