Elites Bribing their Kiddies’ Way into Top Universities By Charles Tsaylor

     I know from Chris that you Aussies have a lot on your plates at the moment. Here in the States, we have been worrying about the fact that the elites who have less than bright kids, simply buy their places at university:  https://www.dailymail.co.uk/news/article-6802515/Scandal-renews-attention-Jared-Kushners-admission-Harvard-father-donated-2-5million.html   https://www.zerohedge.com/news/2019-03-13/college-admissions-scandal-perfect-example-how-deeply-corrupt-america-has-become   https://www.theguardian.com/us-news/2019/mar/12/us-college-admissions-fraud-scheme-charges-georgetown-southern-california-universities

“The “mastermind” behind this college admissions scam was a con man named William Rick Singer.  He had been successfully getting the kids of wealthy people into top colleges for years using “side doors”, and he probably thought that he would never get caught. But he did. There were four basic methods that Singer used to get children from wealthy families into elite schools.  The first two methods involved bribes… Bribing college entrance exam administrators to allow a third party to facilitate cheating on college entrance exams, in some cases by posing as actual students,’ is the first. Bribing university athletic coaches and administrators to designate applicants as purported athletic recruits – regardless of their athletic abilities, and in some cases, even though they did not play the sport,’ is the second. Because many of these kids didn’t even play the sports they were being “recruited” for, in some cases Photoshop was used to paste their faces on to the bodies of real athletes… In order to get non-athletic kids admitted to college as athletes, Singer often had to create fake profiles for them. Sometimes this involved fabricating resumes that listed them having played on elite club teams, but to finish the illusion Singer and his team would also use Photoshop to combine photos of the kids with actual athletes in the sport.

The Death of Globalism, at Last By James Reed

     Could the end be nigh for … globalism? We have endured the end of everything of value to us, so it is only cosmically fair, that if the universe is taking the disintegration path, that globalism cops it too:  https://www.zerohedge.com/news/2019-03-19/death-globalization-accelerates-global-trade-declines   https://www.barrons.com/articles/whether-or-not-there-is-a-u-s-china-deal-the-global-trade-system-is-changing-51552692446

“Investors have been on edge as the world’s two largest economies, the U.S. and China, tiptoe toward a trade agreement. Yet even if President Donald Trump and President Xi Jinping reach a deal, a tariff peace won’t mean a return to the old ways of doing business. The global system of trade is being realigned. A decades long drive toward freer trade across borders has begun to reverse. Globalization is being overwhelmed by populism, nationalism, and protectionism. Brexit threatens to erect new trade barriers between the United Kingdom and the rest of Europe. India just moved to limit foreign operators selling goods online. An eroding global consensus on free trade has led U.S. companies to modify their supply chains, often bringing suppliers closer to their end markets. In the 1990s, global trade regularly grew at twice the rate of worldwide gross domestic product; since 2012, it has been rising only slightly faster than GDP, on average, according to the World Trade Organization. For this year, amid slowing global economic growth and rising barriers, the WTO has lowered trade expansion expectations to 3.7% from 4%, and said that first-quarter trade is slumping to 2010 levels.

Climate Change Protests and De-Civilisation By James Reed

     The kiddies took time off from school to protest about the impending apocalypse from climate change. But, I meant to say, with all the work by sociologists saying that something like race does not exist, and we can see it in front of us as we walk fearfully down the street, who says that climate even exists, beyond being a socio-theoretic construction? (Thanks to Mrs West for this week’s theme.) How then can there be real climate change in our sociology-based world? Surely nothing is real to start off with beyond “SOCIETY,” globocommo’s equivalent of God in this postmodern cesspool. Anyway, another angle on all of this has been given in extracts from an amazing, “tremendous” (as Eric Butler would have said), article on the climate protests:

“‘Climate action’ is brutal austerityThe following release is from an article by Jeremy Beck, printed in the 20 February 2019 Australian Alert Service. School children who plan to skip class again for “climate action” on 15 March likely think they’re part of a grassroots movement to save the environment. They are actually endorsing brutal forms of economic austerity and de-industrialisation under a green cover. The global propaganda network pushing this agenda, financed by many of the world’s billionaires, is the same City of London/Wall Street oligarchy which told us privatised electricity markets would introduce competition and lower prices. Now we’re told more “renewables” will help stop climate change. The big-business-funded Grattan Institute in its latest 54-page report, “Keep calm and carry on”, insists Australia should keep expanding “renewables”, and Australia’s establishment media has promoted its erroneous conclusions. Meanwhile global emissions of so-called greenhouse gases continue to rise, while China’s coal production in 2018 reached 3.55 billion tonnes, rising 5.2 per cent year on year.

Amazon’s Amazing Tax Bill: Nothing! By Brian Simpson

     The capitalist/corporate communist system has been set up so the big players pay no tax at all. Look at Amazon:  https://news.yahoo.com/amazon-taxes-zero-180337770.html?fbclid=IwAR1O4vF_KQjrk2odgechveIMdedtvmdFx37jfZa6l8md3QgbISfVpbjcnOk

“While some people have received some surprise tax bills when filing their returns, corporations continue to avoid paying tax — thanks to a cocktail of tax credits, loopholes, and exemptions. According to a report from the Institute on Taxation and Economic Policy (ITEP), Amazon (AMZN) will pay nothing in federal income taxes for the second year in a row. Thanks to the new Tax Cuts and Jobs Act (TCJA), Amazon’s federal tax responsibility is 21% (down from 35% in previous years). But with the help of tax breaks, according to corporate filings, Amazon won’t be paying a dime to Uncle Sam despite posting more than $11.2 billion in profits in 2018. How is that possible?

What is happening in the US is Set to Happen in Oz: Labor Wrecking Ball A-coming By James Reed

     Our journalists have been devoting much time to covering the US and European crises, as Australia in a globalised world, controlled by the same Dark Lords of Mordor, is not immune to the destructive effects created by globalist policies. Take the Labor policy on refugees for example, which will put us back into the same old problems of the past:  https://www.sbs.com.au/news/morrison-says-labor-s-plan-to-boost-refugee-intake-would-cost-6-billion

“The government has accused the opposition of planning to spend more on increasing Australia's refugee intake than a fund to drought-proof the country. Following a trip to Christmas Island to show off the reopened detention centre, Prime Minister Scott Morrison has continued his attack on Labor over border security, seizing on Finance Department figures on their refugee policy. The figures show the cost of increasing the annual humanitarian intake by 13,000 refugees by 2025 would cost $6.2 billion over 10 years. "Labor need to be upfront about the cost of their policy to significantly increase our refugee intake, Mr Morrison said in a statement. "$6.2 billion is a lot of money and we need to weigh that against other priorities that matter to Australians."

AOC Excited about Humans Going on the Scrap Heap By Chris Knight

     Leading the new wave of elected socialist, if not outright communists, is Hispanic Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez:  https://www.breitbart.com/politics/2019/03/09/ocasio-cortez-people-should-be-excited-about-automation/

“Appearing at the SXSW conference Saturday, Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-NY) said people should be excited by the prospect of robots taking their jobs because it will afford them more time to pursue their creative passions. Ocasio-Cortez speculated fears over automation stem from a lack of financial safety net and economic uncertainty. “We should not be haunted by the specter of being automated out of work,” the self-avowed democrat-socialist said, according to Fast Company. “We should not feel nervous about the tollbooth collector not having to collect tolls. We should be excited by that. But the reason we’re not excited about it is because we live in a society where if you don’t have a job, you are left to die.”

Welcome to Australia’s Recession; Don’t Expect Immigration to be Reduced By James Reed

     Yep, Australia is now in recession, so when this happens the elites like to really fry us, and turn up the immigration throttle to full power:  https://www.smh.com.au/business/the-economy/australia-falls-into-per-capita-recession-as-growth-tumbles-20190306-p5122r.html    http://www.shtfplan.com/headline-news/global-economic-catastrophe-australia-falls-into-recession-nigeria-goes-the-way-of-venezuela_03062019

“Australia has fallen into what is known as a “per capita recession.”  That means the country is relying solely on population growth to propel its economy.  All this is happening as Nigeria follows the same path to becoming Venezuela. The dollar dropped sharply to a two-month low of $0.70 by midday as economists slashed their predictions for official interest rates to reach a record low of 1 percent by September, according to The Sydney Morning Herald. The per capita recession is raising questions about the government’s management of the economy ahead of the federal elections. Prime Minister Scott Morrison has repeatedly said economic growth will be weaker under Labor, but the final two results of this term of government show the Coalition will lead Australia back to the polls struggling to lift a slowing economy.  Many economic experts believe that this next global recession will allow the public to open their eyes about the reality of government and central banks: that they work together to enslave the masses while lining politicians’ pockets with money stolen from the slaves (general population.) On top of this potential nightmare scenario is the fact that governments around the world comprising the largest economies have nearly all become debtor nations that are one economic calamity away from global collapse. As noted by Robert Gore at The Burning Platform blog, France’s Yellow Vest protesters may have inadvertently hit upon a way to bring about the collapse of the fiat money and debt system that is sustaining the very governments which increasingly suppress the people they are supposed to serve. -JD Heyes, Natural News

Pollies Not Running: The Real Reason By James Reed

     Have you noticed a lot of politicians are retiring at the moment? I have not but an email was sent to me, then I noticed. The anonymous email gave a good reason for why the rats are leaving the sinking ship of Oz:

“The real reason behind 60 Elected MPs not seeking re-election! Sixty elected members of the federal government have now reported they have made the decision not to run in the upcoming next election! It's a very high number compared to previous elections. Some of them tell us that it's for family reasons, others for their desire to serve their fellow citizens in other fields and many other great stories to make us cry for them. Besides all the tear jerking that politicians have been giving about retiring here is something else to consider. In 2015 a change in the pension for MP's ensures that the age of full retirement for an MP having served at least 6 years, will no longer be 55 years but 65 years. Thus any MP not yet 65 and who wants to benefit from the present pension scheme need only not run in the next election and thus will draw for 10 years longer a government pension of over $100,000/year.

Green New Genocide By James Reed

     Boy, do I hate environmentalists. Not the old school who loved nature and saved wildernesses, but these new socialist types, like flavour of the month US Senator Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (AOC). Her Green New Deal to deal with the myth of climate change, will involve basically dismantling the entire economy and killing all Americans, which, I suppose does achieve some reduction in carbon creation! Anyway, even the co-founder of Greenpeace has mocked her:   https://www.breitbart.com/politics/2019/03/03/greenpeace-co-founder-aoc-pompous-little-twit-green-new-deal-would-cause-mass-death/

Trump Finally Attacks the Universities, The Source of Almost all Evil By James Reed

     As long-term readers would know, I have been championing a campaign the close down the universities for some years now. Sometimes it seems that someone is listening. Why, I even wrote to the White House to see if President Trump would do anything, such as cut funding to starve the cancer. I did not get a reply, but maybe someone in the office got the idea and passed it on:   https://www.naturalnews.com/2019-03-04-trump-announces-executive-order-universities-free-speech.html

“Upset that conservatives continue to be silenced, banned, and even attacked on America’s increasingly Left-wing college campuses, POTUS Donald Trump said on Saturday he’s prepared to fire a financial warning shot across their bows. Speaking to a packed, enthusiastic crowd at the annual Conservative Political Action Conference in Maryland, the president said he was preparing to sign an executive order denying federal funds to any college or university that did not protect all students’ First Amendment rights to free speech. “Today I am proud to announce that I will be very soon signing an executive order requiring colleges and universities to support free speech if they want federal research dollars,” the president said after bringing Hayden Williams on stage with him, who was sucker punched by a Left-wing activist at the University of California-Berkeley last month. As reported by The National Sentinel, police at UC-Berkley arrested Zachary Greenberg, 28, about 1 p.m. Friday after a judge issued an arrest warrant for the February 19 attack on Williams, 26. Several videos of the attack show Greenberg verbally berating Williams before punching him in the face, then physically assaulting him.

Why the Globalists Love AI By Brian Simpson

     The answer, short and sweet is centralised power and control. Sure, many of us get off playing with computers, but I suppose plenty of people get off playing with chemistry sets too, but do not go to the genetic engineering level of playing Dr Frankenstein:  https://www.zerohedge.com/news/2019-03-02/real-reason-why-globalists-are-so-obsessed-artificial-intelligence

“The globalists have long held AI as a kind of holy grail in centralization technology. The United Nations has adopted numerous positions and even summits on the issue, including the “AI For Good” summit in Geneva. The UN insinuates that it's primary interest in AI is in regulation or observation of how it is exploited, but the UN also has clear goals to use AI to its advantage. The use of AI as a means to monitor mass data to better institute “sustainable development” is written clearly in the UN's agenda. The IMF is also in on the AI trend, holding global discussions on the uses of AI in economics as well as the effects of algorithms on economic analysis. The main source for the development of AI has long been DARPA. The military and globalist think tank dumps billions of dollars into the technology, making AI the underlying focus of most of DARPA's work. AI is not only on the globalist's radar; they are essentially spearheading the creation and promotion of it.

Jordan B. Peterson in Melbourne: The Great Guru of Meat, Visits By James Reed

     I did not have the money to cover the visit of guru Jordan B. Peterson to Melbourne, but after reading critical demolitions of him, I would not have gone anyway. Still, for the remaining fans out there, mainly men in search of a father figure, I recommend the review by Richard Wolstenecroft, apparently an indy filmmaker, URL below. I hopefully have the right guy (apologies otherwise), there are so many people with that surname, it makes me dizzy:   https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Richard_Wolstencroft

     Gee, never heard of him, and probably he and his friends don’t read our stuff either. We don’t get invited to any of their gigs, or fancy restaurants. Could it be because even if they found the rock that people like me and Uncle Len lived under, they would be too embarrassed to take us out to eat, given gluttony and the inevitable flatulence, especially Uncle Len who is simply a primate? Maybe we just have a bad reputation, or body odour? Maybe, both.  I could not afford to pay anyway, even for a hamburger and chips at Maccas. However, I feel warm and gooey inside knowing that out there in the wilds of Melbourne, there are great high IQ writers, beyond the finger-pickers like myself, saying stuff that I mildly agree with.  Oh, and the really good journos use strong words, so I made some editorial changes and really hope that I got all the bad words.  https://affirmativeright.blogspot.com/2019/03/the-unbearable-ambiguity-of-jordan-b.html#more

Why China Now is the Technological Master of All Reality! By James Reed

     Just roll over and die, the West, or better yet, go through another cycle of communism-liberalism-communism …  Meanwhile China is building its heart out, doing things that were once only whispered about, such as making horizontal castles in the sky:  https://www.zerohedge.com/news/2019-02-28/chinas-horizontal-skyscraper-nears-completion-video

“A megastructure featuring the world's tallest sky bridge has been erected in the southwestern Chinese city of Chongqing. Designed by the world's most renowned and prolific architects, Moshe Safdie, Raffles City Chongqing complex measures 1.12-million-square-meters and consists of eight towers and a large connecting sky bridge, which is called a "horizontal skyscraper." The 250-meter-long sky bridge - which is basically a horizontal "skyscraper" resting on the to of several traditional skyscrapers - dubbed Crystal, if made vertical, would be the height of the Eif When open, it will have an observatory wing, sky gardens, an infinity pool, and shopping district. At night, the sky bridge transforms into a large light beam, illuminating the sky into a heavenly light show, fel Tower. The sky bridge is composed of 3,000 glass panels and 5,000 aluminum panels. The Raffles City Chongqing complex will feature a 230,000-square-meter shopping mall, 1,400 residential apartments, an upscale hotel, and 160,000 square meters of office space.”

Baby You Can Drive My Tesla! By Bruce Bennett

     I did not know that things were so bad with old car/computer guru Elon Musk, who seems to go from disaster to disaster, but amazingly, somehow survives so that he can make it to the next disaster.

Sure, people like our own Uncle Len do, but we are talking about elite high-class folk here, not fringe dwellers who live on the fringe of the fringe.  https://www.zerohedge.com/news/2019-03-01/elon-musk-end-road

Get Ready for a Megacatastrophe, Buffett Says By James Reed

     Hell, when I say it, nobody listens! But financial 1 percenter, Warren Buffet (remember a “buffet” is a meal consisting of numerous dishes from which people serve themselves), sees hard times a blowing in:  http://www.shtfplan.com/headline-news/warren-buffet-warns-of-upcoming-megacatastrophe-and-our-losses-will-be-big_02252019

“Billionaire Warren Buffet has issued a warning that there is an upcoming “megacatastrope” on the horizon.  Buffet says that when this apocalyptic scenario plays out, our losses will be immeasurable. In his annual letter, Buffet warned of a “megacatastrophe,” which he said will cause unprecedented havoc not just to victims but to the financial world as well. “A major catastrophe that will dwarf hurricanes Katrina and Michael will occur – perhaps tomorrow, perhaps many decades from now,” the Berkshire Hathaway CEO wrote. “‘The Big One’ may come from a traditional source, such as a hurricane or earthquake, or it may be a total surprise involving, say, a cyber attack having disastrous consequences beyond anything insurers now contemplate.”

The Criminal Greed of the Banks By James Reed

     At least something good came from the Banking Royal Commission, with the recommendation of criminal charges against three financial institutions, and the need to investigate 15 more, which is some indication of what has been going on:  https://www.theaustralian.com.au/business/banking-royal-commission/banking-royal-commission-bank-greed-deemed-criminal-as-charges-recommended/news-story/cadc6e61339f943c81b3ba60663b4160?utm_source=The%20Australian&utm_medium=email&utm_campaign=editorial&utm_content=TodaySHeadlines

“Kenneth Hayne has recommended criminal charges against three financial institutions and asked for investigations into 15 more in a final -report that sets up an election ¬battle between the Morrison government and Labor over which party can be tougher on the banks. The royal commissioner made 76 recommendations involving sweeping changes to laws governing the ¬financial industry in a bid to put an end to misconduct uncovered by the royal commission that included institutions charging dead people fees, banks turfing hundreds of farmers from their land and selling unwanted funeral ¬insurance to a man with Down syndrome. The royal commission heard explosive revelations that some of Australia’s largest financial institutions repeatedly lied to regu¬lators and charged fees where no service was provided, a practice that has left them exposed to a possible compensation bill of up to $2 billion Josh Frydenberg yesterday declared that the banks had been “driven by greed”. “From today, the banking sector must change. And change forever,’’ he said.

China and Russia Plan to Rule the World! Good for Them! By James Reed

     The Russians want to join up with China and rule the world:  https://www.politico.eu/blogs/the-coming-wars/2019/02/russia-china-alliance-rule-the-world/

“In the halls of the Kremlin these days, it’s all about China — and whether or not Moscow can convince Beijing to form an alliance against the West. Russia’s obsession with a potential alliance with China was already obvious at the Valdai Discussion Club, an annual gathering of Russia’s biggest foreign policy minds, in 2017. At their next meeting, late last year, the idea seemed to move from the speculative to something Russia wants to realize. And soon. Russia’s view of China has shifted significantly over the past five years. Every Russian speech — from obscure academics to Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov and Russian President Vladimir Putin himself — played that note and no other. There was even a new sense of desperation in the air. As Sergey Karaganov, a former adviser to Putin, explained to me at breakfast, now everything must be about China.

Now We are Not the Only One’s Saying that Global Warming is a One World Government UN Conspiracy to Control Everything in a New World Order Hyper-Communist Dystopia with No Commas By James Reed

     There is a good feeling when insignificant worm-like creatures, such as  myself, find that their pet near-educated prejudices are confirmed, or at least confirmed in their own conspiratorial minds by people of significance. It is a “ha, ha, told you so moment”:   https://www.telegraph.co.uk/news/worldnews/australiaandthepacific/australia/11591193/Australia-PM-advisor-says-climate-change-a-UN-led-ruse.html

“Australia PM adviser says climate change is 'UN-led ruse to establish new world order' Tony Abbott's business adviser says global warming a fallacy supported by United Nations to 'create a new authoritarian world order under its control' Climate change is a hoax developed as part of a secret plot by the United Nations to undermine democracies and takeover the world, a top adviser to Tony Abbott, Australia’s prime minister, has warned. Maurice Newman, the chief business adviser to the prime minister, said the science showing links between human activity and the warming climate was wrong but was being used as a “hook” by the UN to expand its global control. “This is not about facts or logic. It’s about a new world order under the control of the UN,” he wrote in The Australian.”

The Communist Pope, Comes Clean By Peter West

     For Pope Francis, migrants are so fantastic that they are the Lord’s “privileged ones.” Ok, but he is not content with his job in the Recruitment section of the Department of Immigration. No, communism is not to be feared either:  https://www.jihadwatch.org/2019/02/pope-francis-urges-christians-to-overcome-fear-of-migrants-foreigners-are-also-the-lords-privileged-ones    https://www.breitbart.com/faith/2019/02/19/pope-francis-christians-should-not-fear-looking-like-communists/

“Too many Christians shy away from the social gospel, Pope Francis said Monday, because they are afraid the Church will end up looking like the communist party. God asks us lots of uncomfortable and inconvenient questions, the pope said in his homilyat morning Mass at the Santa Marta residence in the Vatican, just like he did in the garden of Eden, asking Cain, “Where is your brother?” knowing full well that Cain had killed his brother Abel. We are all responsible for one another, Francis said, especially for the poor and needy, even though we often try to back out of this duty. “We ease our conscience a little by giving alms, as long as it does not hurt too much,” he said, because we fear that “with these social things the Church ends up looking like the communist party and this bothers us. Fine, but it was the Lord who said, ‘Where is your brother?’ Not the party, the Lord.”

Why Australians are Not Going to Own Their Own Homes By James Reed

     This is what happens when the sheeple just let things go. There has been plenty of opportunity to oppose the buys ups in the past, but as with immigration, it is just let go, out of apathy, self-consumption and sheepish incomprehension:  https://www.news.com.au/finance/real-estate/buying/fears-one-million-aussie-homes-could-soon-be-owned-by-foreign-buyers/news-story/c50a4112bab4f3ed8fae27277f313f54

“The country is at risk of becoming the “24th province of China” as we fail to “stem the tide” of foreign investors, an expert has warned. Australia is selling off natural resources, farmland and property to China at a “crazy” rate — putting us at risk of becoming the “24th province” of the East Asian behemoth. That’s according to real estate expert Doug Driscoll, who warned of the urgent need to start a national conversation about foreign ownership of residential property in particular. While interest from overseas buyers has decreased in recent years, the Starr Partners chief executive said our overall rate of foreign ownership was still alarmingly high. And he said a report released last month by Chinese international property portal Juwai.com showed there was now an “insatiable appetite” for Australian property among Chinese buyers, with our softening housing market boosting interest.
