The Great Divorce: Secession, Everywhere By Chris Knight

     The idea of secession, breaking up the nation state into separate ethno-states, or divisions based upon culture and politics, has until now been regarded as a fringe idea. But now, this idea that the nation state is not working has been discussed in mainstream publications such as The New York Magazine:
  http://nymag.com/intelligencer/2018/11/maybe-its-time-for-america-to-split-up.html

“Let’s just admit that this arranged marriage isn’t really working anymore, is it? The partisan dynamic in Washington may have changed, but our dysfunctional, codependent relationship is still the same. The midterm results have shown that Democrats have become even more a party of cities and upscale suburbs whose votes are inefficiently packed into dense geographies, Republicans one of exurbs and rural areas overrepresented in the Senate. The new Congress will be more ideologically divided than any before it, according to a scoring system developed by Stanford political scientist Adam Bonica: the Republicans more conservative, the Democrats more liberal. Come January, we are likely to find that we’ve simply shifted to another gear of a perpetual deadlock unlikely to satisfy either side. For the past eight years, there has been no movement toward goals with broad bipartisan support: to fund new infrastructure projects, or for basic gun-control measures like background checks or limits on bump stocks. Divided party control of Capitol Hill will make other advances even less likely. For the near future, the boldest policy proposals are likely to be rollbacks: Democrats angling to revert to a pre-Trump tax code, Republicans to repeal Obama’s health-care law. By December 7, Congress will have to pass spending bills to avoid a government shutdown. Next March looms another deadline to raise the debt ceiling.

By the Lights of the North By Paul Walker

     I had not heard of Annie Haslam, lead singer of the band, Renaissance until reading an ecstatic review by Fenek Solere:

     The band has been around since the 1960s and produced inspiring music dealing with the old Northern European values, while mainstream music produced its cacophony of chaos. How come nobody ever told me about them? Have a cuppa, put up your feet, and enjoy:

Eco-Hypocrites By James Reed

     Young climate change princess Greta, who has lost her childhood, like so many of our lost generation, may have gone to the big climate apocalypse talkfest by classic wind jammer, I think, but most environmental gurus just jet in, creating even more carbon than I create, and I do it deliberately, burning everything I can to help the environment, especially plastic. The thick, choking fumes must be helping the environment, providing needed fuel for plants. But, hey, that is all minor compared to jet travel:
  https://summit.news/2019/10/22/study-finds-the-wealthy-celebrities-arent-changing-their-flying-habits-to-reduce-co2-emissions/

“A new study by Swedish academics has found that most wealthy people and celebrities are not changing their flying habits to help reduce climate change, with some responsible for a thousand times more CO2 emissions than the average. Imagine my shock. The study, carried out by researchers from from Lund University, reviewed the social media accounts of well known celebrities and wealthy philanthropists, many of who relentlessly virtue signal about climate change. Based on the information posted relating to travel, researchers calculated the starting point and destination for flights and then worked out likely CO2 emissions. Climate activist Bill Gates was responsible for approximately 1,600 tonnes of carbon dioxide, while flights used by Paris Hilton and Jennifer Lopez emitted 1,260 tonnes and 1,050 tonnes respectively. These figures compare to a global average of 100 kilos per person per year for air travel, or in other words more than a thousand times higher. According to the researchers, only a minority of the individuals studied have altered their behavior to minimize or stop flying. “Their lifestyles are norm-setting and identity-building. Above all, young people dream of traveling around the world in a similar way, without having to worry about money,” said Stefan Gössling. Once again, it’s very much a case of do as we say not as we do.”

Yes, There is a Real Reason for Impeaching, if Not Executing Donald Trump! By Charles Taylor

Now the Corporates Predict Civil War for Sweden By Richard Miller

     I have been covering the predictions of civil war for Sweden from a number of public and academic sources, but here is a prediction from the corporate sector, so we know that something is going down:
  https://summit.news/2019/10/28/former-ceo-of-scania-warns-sweden-is-heading-for-civil-war/

“The former CEO of trucking company Scania has warned that Sweden is heading towards civil war due to uncontrolled mass immigration. In an interview with Swebbtv, businessman Leif Östling said that the arrival of so many new migrants who have failed to integrate into Swedish society is creating a fertile ground for violent unrest. “We’ve taken in far too many people from outside. And we have. Those who come from the Middle East and Africa live in a society that we left almost a hundred years ago,” he said. Explosions and grenade attacks have skyrocketed in many Swedish cities, with much of the unrest being blamed on migrant gangs. Sexual assaults and violent crime is also on the rise. Östling underscored problems with integration by highlighting his own experience running Scania, where around 90 out of a hundred Somali migrants hired to work for the company were fired or left because they were unable to arrive on time or work in teams. Östling believes that the “knowledge transfer” necessary for migrants to cope in Swedish society could take a generation to accomplish. The businessman said he hoped that the country’s problems could be fixed within 10 years but if not, civil war could ensue, necessitating that the military be called out to deal with violent unrest in migrant areas.”

Not So Funny Furry Feminists By Mrs Vera West

     Here is something that one would never have predicted in a thousand years of predictions, women are not as funny as men.
  https://summit.news/2019/10/28/new-study-finds-women-arent-as-funny-as-men/

“A new study has found that women aren’t as funny as men. I know, hard to believe. The study, published by the Journal of Research in Personality, asked subjects to write a funny caption for a cartoon that was then judged by a panel of judges. Researchers found that 63 per cent of men were deemed to be funnier than the average woman. The study included over 5500 participants, 67 per cent of whom were women, eliminating and in fact overcompensating for any potential gender bias. It also involved a third-party evaluation of the subjects by someone who was not aware of the subject’s gender. “It means that to the best of our knowledge, on average, men appear to have higher humor production ability than women,” said Gil Greengross, an evolutionary psychologist at Aberystwyth University in Wales. She also noted that “a great sense of humor” was one of the signals of mate quality when it comes to females choosing a man. “Humor is strongly correlated with intelligence, which explains why women value men with a great sense of humor, as intelligence was crucial for survival throughout our evolutionary history when we mostly lived in hunter-gatherer groups,” said Greengross.”

What? Everybody, Including Migrants Love Pauline Hanson! By Bruce Bennett

     I was just a kid back in the late 1990s when Pauline Hanson got One Nation going. All I remember feeling at the time, is that my high school teachers hated her, so that immediately made her cool with me. Then there were the riots and all the rampaging by insane pinkos which was pretty exciting at the time for a teenager. This was the first time the Lefties got a big serve back, and I wish that they could get another one too. And now, years later, even migrants, God bless ‘em are starting to rethink things:
  https://www.abc.net.au/news/2019-10-27/the-labor-migrants-voting-for-pauline-hanson-one-nation/11634408

“Vic Meli's parents left war-torn Malta for a better life in Australia when he was just a toddler. But growing up in suburban Sydney as a migrant child in the 1950s was challenging. "Australia was very racist, the polite ones called us new Australians - the others just called us wogs," he said. Mr Meli is now among a growing number of migrants voting for One Nation. ABC analysis of voting trends and Census data has revealed last election, Pauline Hanson's One Nation and Clive Palmer's United Australia Party (UAP) polled strongly in electorates with the highest percentage of migrants in Australia, despite campaigning against further immigration. When asked why a migrant was voting for a party that has been outspoken against some immigrants, Mr Meli said he was protective of his country. "Migrants are not migrants after they come here, they are new Australians," he said. "And if they waited a long time in a queue and went through lots of steps — how do you think they feel about a so-called queue-jumper? "They don't like it."

Millennials Love Socialism! (Lot’s of Free Stuff) By Paul Walker

     This is a problem; while we older folk remember the evils of communism, the young people at university are getting flooded with bs from socialists, which equates Marxism with politically correct causes that the average young person has been programmed to accept as part of the laws of nature, as if multiculturalism was ground into the furniture of the universe. Along with that, a generation almost as narcissistic as we disgusting boomers, likes a lot of free stuff.
  https://thehill.com/homenews/campaign/467684-70-percent-of-millennials-say-theyd-vote-for-a-socialist-poll

“Seventy percent of millennials in a new poll say that they are somewhat or extremely like to vote for a socialist candidate. The YouGov–Victims of Communism Memorial Foundation poll released on Monday also found that 50 percent of millennials, defined as between the ages of 23 and 38, and 51 percent of Generation Z, or those ages 16 to 22, have a somewhat or very unfavorable view of capitalism, an increase of 8 and 6 percentage points, respectively, from last year. Only 44 percent of Generation X, 33 percent of baby boomers and 33 percent of the silent generation said they were somewhat or extremely likely to vote for a socialist candidate. Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-Vt.), a Democratic White House hopeful, is a self-identified democratic socialist who advocates for left-wing policies like the Green New Deal, "Medicare for All" and increased tax rates on wealthier Americans. Another front-runner in the 2020 race, progressive Sen. Elizabeth Warren (D-Mass.), said that it would be “wrong” to label her a socialist. Overall, Americans are more hesitant about voting for a “democratic socialist” than they were in 2018, according to the new survey.

Return of the Primitive By Chris Knight

  https://www.reuters.com/article/us-mexico-violence-tepito/over-40-skulls-found-at-altar-in-den-of-mexico-cartel-suspects-idUSKBN1X7030

“Police found more than 40 skulls, dozens of bones and a fetus in a glass jar next to an altar in the den of suspected drug traffickers in Mexico City during a raid this week, authorities said on Sunday. Four of the skulls were built into the altar in the central Tepito neighborhood, where police arrested 31 people on Tuesday on suspicion of drug cartel activity, the city government said in a statement. A judge ordered 27 of the suspects released. A photo distributed by the Mexico City attorney general’s office showed skulls clustered around the altar, which had a cross behind it adorned with a horned wooden face mask. To the right of the altar was a painted wall full of symbols that included a pyramid topped with a hand, celestial bodies and the head of a goat with a hexagram between its horns, according to photos of the room published by local media. In front of the wall stood a variety of objects, including dozens of wooden sticks with colored markings. A spokeswoman for the attorney general’s office said authorities were still investigating the provenance of the skulls, at least 42 of which had been found. Investigators also discovered knives, 40 jawbones, the fetus and 30 leg or arm bones at the site, the office said. It was not yet clear whether the fetus was human, the spokeswoman said.”

Polar Bears Now Given an Icy Reception by Greenies By James Reed

     Would polar bears be tasty? Would polar bear steaks be tender and juicy, roasting away while one sat in an igloo, the icy winds raging outside? No doubt there are a few remaining indigenous people, inuits, who would know the answer to that question, but we shall never know. I mean polar bears are heading to extinction because of global warming, getting caught on the last remaining crusts of ice, and thus drowning trying to find something solid. Didn’t big Al Gore tell us that “inconvenient truth”? Think again fellow meat eaters:

“You probably won’t be seeing too many polar bears in the mainstream media anymore now that the climate brigade has decided to drop the furry arctic animal from its propaganda lineup. The reason, as we recently reported, has to do with the fact that, contrary to the prevailing climate narrative, polar bear numbers are increasing, not decreasing. In other words, despite the alleged pandemic of “global warming” and melting polar ice caps, polar bears are doing just fine – so well, in fact, that in some areas hunters are being encouraged to kill more of them in order to thin out their population numbers. Hilariously, The Guardian (U.K.) actually made a formal announcement about the removal of polar bears from its climate change propaganda, insisting that it’s more effective to use people rather than animals in conveying the “climate emergency.” After seeking advice from an organization called “Climate Visuals,” The Guardian‘s editors decided that continuing to feature polar bears, and apparently pandas, as “emblems” of climate change is imprudent, if not entirely inaccurate. “Often, when signalling environmental stories to our readers, selecting an image of a polar bear on melting ice has been the obvious – though not necessarily appropriate choice,” The Guardian reporter Fiona Shields writes. “These images tell a certain story about the climate crisis but can seem remote and abstract – a problem that is not a human one, nor one that is particularly urgent,” she goes on to explain.”

Lo, the New Black Death By Brian Simpson and John Steele

     The collapse of society from pandemic disease is one of the least popular existential threats, since this basically wipes out everyone crowed like chooks in pens of the modern city. Disease will spread rapidly in these modern cesspools, with the potential to devastate the human race, quickly:
  https://www.naturalnews.com/2019-10-28-are-you-prepared-for-the-next-black-death.html

“From malaria, to Ebola, or even the flu, tons of diseases break out and kill hundreds or even thousands of people every year. Any of these diseases could easily turn into an epidemic. For example, in 2017 an outbreak of the bubonic plague – the same plague that killed 60 percent of Europe in the 14th century – and the pneumonic plague swept through the island nation of Madagascar, infecting over 2,348 people and causing at least 202 deaths. The next Black Death could be just around the corner. Experts believe that the next big pandemic could kill up to 80 million people. They even claim that the world is woefully unprepared for it. It’s time that you broke from the mold. Here are several things you can do to keep yourself safe if and when that day comes. (h/t to BioPrepper.com)

Letter to The Editor - In a long history that begins with the wisdom of Prince Alfred and the signing of Magna Carta

To The Age        Yes, the British people have indeed reached a turning point ("Brexit election puts UK at historic crossroads", 2/11). However, it is nonsense to suggest that there is any danger of the UK "turning the English Channel into a new Berlin Wall." It is rather a question of whether, collectively, the British people have the insight and the nerve to avoid being further imprisoned within an EU that is busy, as the decisions of the European Court of Human Rights show, in erecting new walls to keep out traditional freedoms that have been rightly cherished by Britons in a long history that begins with the wisdom of Prince Alfred and the signing of Magna Carta. And remember, an entirely independent UK after a successful and genuine Brexit can still participate in European culture and trade with the peoples of Europe.

Letter to The Editor - Incorporation into the EU threatens the British with the loss of all of these benefits and the effective end of their national story

To The Australian         Greg Sheridan states truly that if Brexit is defeated "the very idea of Britain will be humiliated" ("British poll is truly an election for the ages, a hinge of history", 2-3/11). It is worth asking what that idea is. A triumphalist answer in 2019 that ignores the many failings of the British in their long history will not do. More modestly, it is possible to find an answer in the institution of the English monarchy and the pledges made by the Sovereign at the time of coronation. In simple terms British tradition honours the sacred and recognises its primacy in the affairs of state. Secondly, it upholds an idea of service and an ideal of chivalry drawn from Christian teaching. Thirdly, it recognises the dignity of the person and the crucial importance of political freedom in the life of the nation. Fourthly, it possesses a magnificent legal tradition that, properly wielded, offers the people protections from power-mongers and selfish elites. Incorporation into the EU threatens the British with the loss of all of these benefits and the effective end of their national story.

Letter to The Editor - Farage may well be right, too, that Boris Johnson's deal with the UK is "just not Brexit"

To The Age        A feature of Western European culture since World War Two has been the ongoing demonisation of the so-called "extreme right" or "hard right" in popular and mainstream public forums. Is it possible that this will lead in the UK to a failure to achieve Brexit because the Conservative Party will not form an alliance with Nigel Farage's Brexit Party? Common sense suggests that, with the UK's electoral system of first-past-the-post voting, such an agreement should be forged. Farage may well be right, too, that Boris Johnson's deal with the UK is "just not Brexit" ("Fast-forward to the election", 31/10). Does it really promise a full return of sovereignty and the clear protection of free speech by a traditional legal system?

Letter to The Editor - Avoid further corruption of British legal tradition

To The Australian         The two voices to whom the British people should most of all be listening as they prepare for the coming elections are both those of dead men: George Orwell and Alexander Solzhenitsyn. They showed in their great novels with terrible clarity what life becomes like in modern, post-industrial states if political freedom is lost. In order for a genuine Brexit to happen and such freedom to be regained for the UK, there needs to be an unequivocal alliance in the next five weeks between the Conservative Party and the Brexit Party. Then, after a genuine Brexit has been achieved, the new British government needs to bring to an end the life of the Tony Blair created Supreme Court and avoid further corruption of British legal tradition. It is astonishing that these matters are not at the forefront of public debate at this stage.

2020 USA Democrats Will Give Open Borders By Chris Knight

     Like it or lump it, Australia’s survival in an increasingly threatening region, dominated by China, depends upon the US continuing to exist, and not collapsing. But, as Ann Coulter has said in one of her most hard-hitting interviews, most of the leading Democrat presidential candidates are falling over themselves to embrace increasingly absurd forms of globalisation and open borders, in some respects more extreme than George Soros:
  https://www.breitbart.com/politics/2019/10/27/ann-coulter-oligarchs-going-deliver-country-like-venezuela/

“The nation’s oligarchs will “deliver a country” to American citizens “like Venezuela” through 2020 Democrats such as Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-VT) and Sen. Elizabeth Warren (D-MA) because of their need for “more and more cheap labor,” columnist Ann Coulter says. In an interview with Lars Larson, Coulter said America’s giant middle class will continue to be eroded should the billionaire class get their way on immigration where the ultimate goal is hemispheric open borders. “We used to have … the hallmark of America was an enormous, enormous middle class. I mean, something like 80 to 90 percent of Americans describes themselves as middle class,” Coulter said. “You might be upper or lower within that, but there were not enormous gaps.” I mean, there is a problem with the oligarchs in this country and they’re the ones bringing in the cheap labor and they’re the ones — not all of them but a lot of them — who don’t care about the country per se,” Coulter continued. “They just want more and more cheap labor. And they are going to deliver a country to us like Venezuela through people like Bernie Sanders and Elizabeth Warren.” As Breitbart News has noted, despite Warren’s populist rhetoric — where she has called out multinational corporations for having no loyalty to American workers — her campaign to win the 2020 Democrat presidential nomination has endorsed one of the most open borders platforms of all the candidates. Warren’s immigration plan includes decriminalizing illegal immigration and providing amnesty to all 11 million to 22 million illegal aliens living in the U.S. — policies that will force America’s working class to compete for scarce blue-collar and middle-income jobs against the world’s migrants. Likewise, Warren has championed the donor class and Chamber of Commerce’s effort to increase legal immigration to the U.S. and thus driving up foreign competition against middle class and college-educated Americans. Current immigration levels are already helping to hand electoral dominance to Democrats nationwide, research by the New York Times, Axios, and the Atlantic has noted. The U.S. is set to bring at least 15 million new foreign-born voters to the country in the next decade. These voters’ swing towards Democrats has been realized in the 2016 presidential election, where despite winning almost 50 percent of native-born Americans, Trump lost foreign-born voters to Hillary Clinton by 64 percent.”

How Do You Stop Cows from Farting? How Do you Stop Me From Farting? By Uncle Len, Gone with the Wind

     The unmatched, unimpeached Uncle Len is back, but he never really left, just stopped writing for a while because he lost his favourite pencil. But, now I have found it, let me talk about a subject that I am most qualified to discuss; farting, especially that of the king of farters, cows, the ultimate vegans, too, who are endangering the planet with their grassy gassy emissions, let alone other stuff. I hope that that was coherent. 
  https://www.breitbart.com/environment/2019/10/27/climate-alarmists-propose-feeding-cows-seaweed-reduce-methane-farts/

“Environmentalists intent on finding new ways to reduce so-called greenhouse gas emissions to curb climate change have proposed a novel method: feed cows seaweed to diminish methane in flatulence, belches, and manure. Ermias Kebreab, an zoology professor at the University of California–Davis, led a team in producing a bovine meal regimen containing varying levels of Asparagopsis armata, a strain of red seaweed, and fed it to 12 dairy cows over a two-month period. In a mix containing just 1 percent seaweed, the cows’ methane emissions went down by a stunning 60 percent. “In all the years that I’ve worked in this area, I’ve never seen anything that reduced it that much,” Kebreab said.”

The Famine of Genius By Brian Simpson

     Guess what? Genius creates civilisation, but today geniuses are few and far between, so we are in deep longer-term trouble according to the IQ worshippers such as Lance Welton:
  https://vdare.com/articles/the-genius-famine-the-death-of-religion-will-lead-to-the-death-of-genius-and-the-death-of-civilization

“British code-breaker Alan Turing was the father of computer science. It is difficult to imagine what life would be like in 2017 if Turing hadn’t lived and hadn’t been employed by a university to research. But, as the movie The Imitation Game poignantly showed, Turing had few friends, was chronically shy, lacked social skills and was often shunned by his colleagues. Turing was a genius. But there’d be very few people like him working at universities today. This is a serious problem and, according to a new academic book recently published in the UK, the decline of religion is part of the reason for it. So argue anthropologist Edward Dutton (Oulu University, Finland) and psychiatrist Bruce Charlton (Newcastle University, UK) in their fascinating 2016 tome, The Genius Famine. According to the two British academics, geniuses are a distinct psychological type. They have extremely high intelligence, meaning they excel at quickly solving cognitive problems. This strongly predicts socioeconomic, educational and even social success. But geniuses combine this with relatively low conscientiousness and low empathy. They also tend to be uninterested in worldly things—money, sex, power—focused intensely on the intellectual pursuit of solving whatever seemingly unsolvable problem has come to obsess them. New ideas always break established rules and offend vested interests, but the genius couldn’t care less, claim Dutton and Charlton. This is why it is the genius who is able to make original, fantastic breakthroughs.

Soros to Rule the World in 2020 By Charles Taylor (Florida)

     George Soros, the globalist who never sleeps, working 24/7, relentless pushing on to victory, in 2020 he believes:
  https://www.zerohedge.com/geopolitical/soros-predicts-globalist-victory-2020

“Progressive billionaire George Soros believes that the global surge in nationalism - from Brexit to Trump - is an aberration, and that globalism will make a resurgence after the 2020 US election. In a recent interview with the New York Times (in which he also endorsed Elizabeth Warren), the 89-year-old investor opined last week in a collection of essays called "In Defense of Open Society" that his brand of globalism - which he defines as an integrated, open society which abides by the law (which is easy to do when allied lawmakers are making them) - is out of favor. Instead, Trump's "America First" approach, debates over Brexit and trade wars have taken precedent. Looking out a window with expansive views of Central Park, Mr. Soros spoke about China, Mr. Trump and who he thinks will face off against the president in next year’s election. Notably, Mr. Soros is convinced that the arc of history may soon turn back his way, that Mr. Trump’s election and Brexit were the nadir of anti-globalism and that a backlash to that nationalism is coming. “Trump is still doing a tremendous amount of damage,” he said, lifting himself up a bit in his desk chair. “I mean, just the last week what he has done in the Middle East has been devastating for America’s influence in the world,” he said, referring to the withdrawal of American troops from Syria. -New York Times

Being Swedish Means Having a Bomb! By Richard Miller

     Guns may be banned for the ordinary Swedish cuck, but bombs … well in Sweden bombs are everywhere and have become part and parcel of the culture:
  https://www.spectator.co.uk/2019/10/bomb-attacks-are-now-a-normal-part-of-swedish-life/

“Explosions have become so normalised in Sweden that SVT, Sweden’s equivalent of the BBC, did not even mention the three explosions in the country’s capital on its national news programme that evening. Instead, the main domestic story was the purported censorship of ‘big female bodies’ on Instagram. Apparently, we mustn’t be referred to as ‘women’ any more, but ‘female bodies’, lest anyone’s gender be assumed. The explosions were left to the local news. To understand how Sweden arrived at this degree of normalisation, consider the statistics: between January and June this year, more than 100 explosions were reported in the country, up from about 70 in the same period last year. A total of more than 160 suspected attacks with explosives were reported last year. There are no comparable figures available for earlier years because it’s such a recent phenomenon. Until recently no one would have thought of adding a column on bombings to the national Swedish crime statistics. Wilhelm Agrell, professor of intelligence analysis at Lund University, has warned that the situation has become so dire that the integrity of the Swedish state is in jeopardy. ‘The state’s monopoly on violence, the actual token of a sovereign government, has been hollowed out bit by bit and no longer exists,’ he wrote a few weeks ago. ‘The armed criminal violence is having effects that are increasingly similar to those of terrorism.’
