The University Degree and Debt By James Reed

     We do not get searching critiques, at least from economists, of the Australian university system, perhaps because the universities’ main role here is to bring in migrants for the Great Replacement, as I have argued in previous articles, so immigration has become a sacred cow of the anti-us system. Anyway, in the US context:
  https://www.zerohedge.com/economics/college-worth-it-one-study-says-maybe-not

“The unjustifiably high cost of college tuition in the US has dragged a whole generation into debt slavery. The average cost of a 4-year degree in the US is 3x higher than it was in 1990. Even tuition at in-state schools is climbing more quickly than incomes. As more people are forced to go into deep levels of debt to afford an education, more would-be students are being forced to take a hard look and reevaluate the ROI on a college degree. And as college tuition continues to outpace wage growth, for a growing number of people, the answer to 'is college worth it?' is going to be no. A reporter at Clever.com did some digging, and tabulated the ROI on different types of degrees: the bachelor's, master's and doctorate. Generally speaking, people with at least a bachelor's degree typically earn more money over their lifetime than those who never attended college, and it's also easier to get a job with a degree. But while Americans with a bachelor's degree might be on to something, those who earn a Master's and PHD-level degrees can't say the same. While nearly half the population has a bachelor's degree, only 13% of Americans have a master's or Phd-level degree. And according to Clever's analysis, many higher-level degrees may not be worth the time and money that students spend. In fact, the longer someone spends in school, the more the value of their degrees diminishes. Of course, ROI changes depending on the subject that an individual studies. Clever found that the best bachelor's degrees, unsurprisingly, tend to be in the STEM area: operations research, petroleum engineering, biological and physical sciences, biopsychology and gerontology.”

Zombies “R” Us By James Reed

     A bit of a slow news period, but, we still have to churn out material. I recall Aussie comedy legend, Graham Kennedy who did a news show in the 1980s or was it the 1990s (?), facing a slow news day and saying: well, do they expect us to go out and make news! Anyway, at the ever-interesting Unz Review, I find buried under layers of other interesting material, a little article dealing with zombies, which puts the point that this may be a better metaphor for the inert masses than sheeple. After all, sheep have a bit of life in them:
  https://www.unz.com/rbonomo/were-all-zombies/

““I have always liked the ‘monster within’ idea. I like to think of zombies as being us. Zombies are the blue-collar monsters.” – George Romero
Another essential quality of the zombie is its unquenchable hunger. No amount of flesh and blood seems able to quench the longing to consume live human flesh. Modern man has a similar problem- no amount of money, sex, gadgets, job titles, drugs, entertainment, pornography, art, religion or gurus seem able to quench our thirst. We live in constant hunger. If we equate the zombie ‘hunger’ for flesh to the human desire for money, the comparison becomes almost uncanny. Most adult humans spend most of their day either making money or spending it while being constantly bombarded with propaganda/advertising to keep them hungry. From the most humble street vendor to the billionaires on CNBC, no one seems to ever have enough money. Zombies need to eat live human flesh and money is at its core, human labor. Our craving for money is really the craving for the work of others, for the sweat and blood of millions to furnish us with unlimited amounts of food and consumer goods. The vast majority of Westerners have ceased to create anything tangible. Only one in five Americans actually produce anything. Eating what one produces on a farm or trading manufactured goods for food connects us to life. But when people spend ten hours a day in an office looking at a computer screen and two hours in traffic, somehow eating, and living, become abstract. What are we actually doing to create the food, heat, and the shelter we need? Our hunger for food and things far outstrips our practical needs and has become the cause of our ever more obese, angry, unsatisfied society while our spiritual hunger leaves us addicted, chasing empty consumer thrills. There is no end to what can be consumed and there is never enough for even those with billions; we always need more.”

Open Borders USA; More Refugees for Cultural Vibrancy and Diversity! By Chris Knight

     The mass immigration lobby has gone in recent times from being cautious not to reveal its open borders agenda, to now, in the time of Trump to going all -out on the Great Replacement:
  https://www.breitbart.com/politics/2019/12/08/mayors-ask-trump-more-refugees/

“Nearly 100 mayors across the United States are begging President Trump to import as many refugees to the country as possible in order to “bring cultural vibrancy and diversity” to American communities. In a letter to Secretary of State Mike Pompeo last month, about 88 mayors — from Denver, Colorado to Columbia, South Carolina — urged Trump to end his latest executive order that gives American communities more veto power over whether they want refugees resettled in their communities. The mayors said that more refugees are needed to bring about “cultural vibrancy and diversity” to their often small towns, though they admit refugees are an initial tax burden on their taxpayers. According to the letter: We write to urge the Administration to rescind the September 26 executive order and return this year’s refugee admissions to previous annual levels. U.S. cities have long benefited from the annual arrival of refugees. Once they are resettled, refugees learn the new language, adjust to the different culture, and strive to establish a new life. In the process, they also enrich and bring cultural vibrancy and diversity to their local communities. [Emphasis added] Refugees contribute meaningfully to our economy as earners and taxpayers. While they receive initial assistance upon arriving in the United States, they see significant income increases in subsequent years. [Emphasis added] As Breitbart News reported, Trump is set to continue cutting refugee admissions next year by reducing former President Obama’s refugee inflow by at least 80 percent. This reduction would mean a maximum of 18,000 refugees can be resettled in the U.S. between October 1, 2019, to September 30, 2020. This is merely a numerical limit and not a goal federal officials are supposed to reach. The mayors join the national security establishment, Republican and Democrat lawmakers, as well as the Koch brothers‘ network of GOP donors to demand that Trump increase refugee resettlement to the country.”

Surveillance Capitalism: An Assault on Human Autonomy By Brian Simpson

     I have been saying this for years in my critique of technology, but it is good to hear a different voice for today:
  https://www.technocracy.news/professor-surveillance-capitalism-is-an-assault-on-human-autonomy/
  https://www.theguardian.com/books/2019/oct/04/shoshana-zuboff-surveillance-capitalism-assault-human-automomy-digital-privacy

“It’s a beautiful day on Hampstead Heath, the last weekend of summer – parliament is still prorogued. In a festival tent at the HowtheLightGetsIn festival, Professor Shoshana Zuboff is talking about her recent book, The Age of Surveillance Capitalism: The Fight for a Human Future at the New Frontier of Power. Zuboff stands on a low stage, making eye-contact with her audience. She spies someone who seems unconvinced, invites them to raise their concerns. “When this book was published in January, I left home for three weeks on the road,” she says. “I’m still going.” The audience laughs. Because The Age of Surveillance Capitalism – a 700-plus page sociological analysis of the digital era – has become an epoch-defining international bestseller, drawing comparisons to revolutionary works such as Rachel Carson’s Silent Spring. Naomi Klein has urged everyone to read it “as an act of digital self-defence”. It describes how global tech companies such as Google and Facebook persuaded us to give up our privacy for the sake of convenience; how personal information (“data”) gathered by these companies has been used by others not only to predict our behaviour but also to influence and modify it; and how this has had disastrous consequences for democracy and freedom. This is the “surveillance capitalism” of the title, which Zuboff defines as a “new economic order” and “an expropriation of critical human rights that is best understood as a coup from above”.

Story of the Old Dog, Billy Clinton and the Paedophile By Charles Taylor

     It is truly amazing that Bill Clinton, who was best of buddies with paedophile Epstein, and along with Hillary, stayed at Epstein’s ranch, has not been roasted by the mainstream media, while every pip by Donald Trump is taken as a ground for impeachment. The level of evil radiated by the system, is truly astonishing:
  https://www.dailymail.co.uk/news/article-7748467/Bill-Hillary-Clinton-frequent-guests-Jeffrey-Epsteins-New-Mexico-ranch.html

“Bill and Hillary Clinton stayed at Jeffrey Epstein's notorious 'baby-making ranch' almost every year after they left the White House, according to the disgraced financier's estate manager. The former president was Epstein's closest 'celebrity mate' and the Clintons, along with daughter Chelsea, visited Zorro Ranch 'a whole bunch of times', a former contractor who ran the IT system at the property told DailyMailTV in an exclusive interview. 
The family visited the 10,000-acre estate in the New Mexico desert often, but never stayed in the main house. Instead, the Clinton family bunked down in a special cowboy-themed village created by Epstein, which is a mile south of his own luxury mountaintop villa. They'd use one of the two guest houses, which look like they're straight out of the 19th century. Seen in exclusive DailyMailTV images, the guest homes are next to other traditional Wild West-style buildings such as an old schoolhouse and saloon bar. An American flag is raised high above the village, which is next door to Epstein's private airstrip, where he arrived on his private planes, including his infamous 'Lolita Express'.

Big Bill for Educating Illegal Aliens By Charles Taylor

     Mass migration of the Third World into America, is said to enrich us, although if this was so, it is surprising that China has not copied this practice. In any case, for every positive, there is a negative, and for every benefit, a cost. So, let’s hear about some of the costs of this involuntary enrichment:
  https://www.breitbart.com/politics/2019/12/04/byrne-americans-billed-60b-a-year-to-educate-illegal-aliens-anchor-babies/

“American taxpayers are being forced to pay about $60 billion to educate illegal alien students, as well as refugees, the United States-born children of illegal aliens, and legal immigrant children, Rep. Bradley Byrne (R-AL) said on Wednesday. During a congressional hearing where opponents of President Trump attacked his “America First” immigration agenda, Byrne noted that the burden of the nation’s mass illegal and legal immigration system — where more than 1.5 million are admitted every year — falls on U.S. taxpayers who have no choice but to subsidize the cost. Byrne said: In 2016, the Pew Research Center estimated that 3.9 million – or 7.3% – of kindergarten through 12th grade students in the United States were either here illegally or were the children of at least one parent illegally present in the United States. Can anyone tell me how much we spend on public education for that population of students? It’s around $60 billion. Byrne said that while the federal government mandates English as a Second Language (ESL) programs for the roughly 9.6 percent of all U.S. students who are considered Limited English Proficiency (LEP), it is states and local residents who have to endure the cost. “What percentage of ESL programs are paid for by the federal government that requires them? Just over one percent,” Byrne said. “Who pays for the rest? States and local school systems.” Bryne went on: So, we require it and we push 99 percent of the costs on state and local school systems. That costs a lot of money for these state and local school systems. Many of them like my state of Alabama just don’t have it. But because the federal government requires it, they have to put that money in there to the detriment of other programs. That cost is not being borne by those of us in Washington. It’s being borne by men and women and the states and local school systems around the United States of America. But really the cost is being borne by children who are being denied the programs that they should have. Children who are citizens of the United States, whose parents are citizens of the United States, they’re being denied programs because we’re forcing their state and local school systems to take on an expense that we should be taking on because we’ve failed to enforce our own laws. As Breitbart News has chronicled, towns across the U.S. have had to brace for mass illegal immigration pouring through the southern border where thousands of Unaccompanied Alien Children (UACs) enter every year and are resettled in American communities. Most recently, the small town of Worthington, Minnesota had to hike taxes on their residents to expand their overcrowded school system due to the surge of UACs and illegal immigration.

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.

The End of “working Hard” By James Reed

     What is the point of working hard? Well, in my opinion, with the West in free fall, with everything open to existential loss for all time, probably not much point at all, for conventional work. All that is really worth doing now is making one last political stand against the criminally insane elites, facing the prospects of the dark night of oblivion:
  https://www.abc.net.au/triplej/programs/hack/2020-edelman-trust-barometer-shows-growing-sense-of-inequality/11883788

“A growing sense of inequality is undermining trust in both society's institutions and capitalism, according to a long-running global survey. The 2020 Edelman Trust Barometer - now in its 20th year - has found many people no longer believe working hard will give them a better life. Despite strong economic performance, a majority of respondents in every developed market do not believe they will be better off in five years' time. This means that economic growth no longer appears to drive trust, at least in developed markets - upending the conventional wisdom. "We are living in a trust paradox," said Richard Edelman, CEO of Edelman. "Since we began measuring trust 20 years ago, economic growth has fostered rising trust. This continues in Asia and the Middle East but not in developed markets, where national income inequality is now the more important factor. Fears are stifling hope, and long-held assumptions about hard work leading to upward mobility are now invalid.

Those Who Live by Globalism, Die by Globalism By James Reed

     The World Health Organization has now declared the coronavirus epidemic a global pandemic. But it stopped short of advocating closing borders, although sensible countries like Russia, have already done so, and good for them:
  https://www.ft.com/content/75adafb6-4306-11ea-abea-0c7a29cd66fe
  https://www.nytimes.com/2020/01/30/health/coronavirus-world-health-organization.html
  https://www.naturalnews.com/2020-01-30-w-h-o-declares-global-pandemic-coronavirus.html

“The World Health Organization declared on Thursday that the Wuhan coronavirus outbreak was a global health emergency, acknowledging that the disease now represents a risk beyond China, where it emerged last month. The decision reversed the organization’s decision just a week ago to hold off such a declaration. Since then, W.H.O. officials said, thousands of new cases in China and clear human-to-human transmission in several other countries — now including the United States — warranted a reconsideration of that decision by the agency’s expert committee. The W.H.O.’s declaration — officially called a “public health emergency of international concern” — does not have the force of law. But it serves notice to all United Nations member states that the world’s top health advisory body thinks the situation is grave. Governments then make their own decisions about whether to close their borders, cancel flights, screen people arriving at airports or take other protective measures.”

The Demons of Political Violence By Chris Knight

     What has been described as the “demons of political violence” seem to be gripping the world, from France to America. We all needs to pay attention to the smoke signals of the time:
  https://www.irishtimes.com/news/world/europe/french-protests-we-are-seeing-the-first-signs-of-civil-war-1.4106259

“Slowly but surely, they’re taking away all our acquis, the acquired rights that our elders fought for,” says Didier. “In 1936 we got paid holidays; later, unemployment benefits. Now they’re trying to take away our pension rights. Macron, stop taking away our acquis!” Macron wants to shift all France from a defined benefits scheme to a defined contribution scheme, called a points system. “I don’t know what a points pension means,” says Jean-Pierre. “I don’t think Macron knows either. . . I hope we paralyse the country. I don’t give a damn about Christmas, because if Macron keeps at it there’ll be no turkey, nothing to eat. I call him the vulture.” Four police officers stand nearby, shuffling their feet and rubbing gloved hands against the cold. They wear RoboCop vests and shoulder and arm protectors and speak through woollen mufflers. If they can just prevent rioting today, they hope the movement will fizzle. “Is it true that [interior minister Christophe] Castaner says we can keep our early retirement?” the officers ask. Two leading police unions called on members to strike. Castaner appealed to them to remain on duty, and promised their right to early retirement will not change. Hubert Labrousse (75), a retired researcher for the Institut Pasteur, joined Attac 15 years ago “because the Communist Party sank and the Socialist Party was no longer socialist”. Labrousse chomps a cigar and wears a top hat, three-piece suit and white scarf, a mockery of a rich man. He sees this protest as the continuation of the gilets jaunes movement that started in November 2018. “I don’t want a civil war,” he says, “But we’re seeing the first signs: the rise of the far-right, the gap between rich and poor . . .”

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.

Now They Take Even the Toilet Away from Us! By Bruce Bennett

     Is nothing “sacred” anymore?
  https://amp.news.com.au/finance/work/at-work/a-new-toilet-design-is-set-to-increase-productivity-by-making-the-seats-unbearable/news-story/864ff2e28fea1b2c0c42a82165d6d79b

“The new design is intended to make it unbearable for workers after five minutes, shortening employee’s toilet breaks in the process. The “Standard Toilet” made by a start-up in the UK of the same name is sloped so it sits at a 13-degree downward angle. According to developer Mahabir Gill from StandardToilet, this will increase strain on the legs similar to a gentle squat thrust. While 13 degrees is optimal, StandardToilet holds the patent for anything from five to 35 degrees. At a maximum, the company estimates that a 35-degree downward slant would reduce time in the toilet by 30 per cent. This is a clear benefit to customers, said Mr Gill, as industry research from the company suggested that the average person spent 25 per cent more time in work toilets than necessary. The cost to business of this was estimated to be roughly $A31 billion (£16 billion) per annum, according to their website. Meanwhile, by cutting time spent on the toilet by 25 per cent with a 13-degree angle, Standard Toilet estimates it can save businesses $A9.20 billion (£4.8 billion) a year. The news of the toilet has been met with criticism online, with people questioning how this toilet would be legal for people with accessibility issues.”

Our House is Still on Fire? I Still Make Angry Faces By James Reed

     The little climate princess, with the angry screwed up face … and who would not be angry if they sincerely believed what she, obviously sincerely, but naively believes, was at Davos, ripping into the elite for doing nothing about climate change. What! Nothing! Doesn’t Princess Greta know that as part of the New World Order global conspiracy by the Forces of Darkness, for the destruction of all that is good, that the money elite are doing plenty, using climate change to smash everything they don’t want to survive?
  https://www.zerohedge.com/energy/climate-puppet-greta-thunberg-shames-davos-attendees-doing-nothing

“Greta Thunberg did exactly as expected at Davos - delivering her trademark public shaming to the world's most rich and powerful (non-Chinese) leaders gathered on the icy slopes of the Swiss Alps. "Our house is still on fire," the 17-year-old told the World Economic Forum. "Your inaction is fueling the flames by the hour." "I wonder, what will you tell your children was the reason to fail and leave them facing the climate chaos you knowingly brought upon them?" she added, delivering a verbal flagellation to elite climate sinners that want to repent - as long as they can brand themselves as 'green' and make hand-over-fist in the process. Thunberg is pushing immediate, radical change in order to achieve 'net zero' carbon emissions by 2050, along with the planting of 1 trillion trees to offset pollution, in order to keep temperatures from rising beyond 1.5 degrees from preindustrial levels. She and a group of young climate activists have called on private investors and governments to immediately halt exploration for fossil fuels, to stop funding their production, to end taxpayer subsidies for the industry and to fully divest their existing stakes in the sector. -NYT "Let’s be clear. We don’t need a ‘low carbon economy.’ We don’t need to ‘lower emissions,’" Thunberg told the audience. "Our emissions have to stop."

Run for the Hills: Survivalism Going Mainstream By John Steele

     This will be my last article for a while, if things go super-pear shaped with the big virus doing the rounds at the moment and it is The End Of The World As We Know It (TEOTWAWKI), I do not want to be in the Melbourne. Well, maybe not until civilisation is rebuilt. Anyway, I have my supplies, a new Bowie knife with a 12-inch blade, and Cold Steel machete with a 24-inch blade, just as someone named “Steele” would have, so I will be going even deeper into the scrub, bugging out in, my army tent. No nasty bugs here, just clean sunlight, and plenty of heat, but I love the peace and solitude, my version of Walden. Just ask the Americans:
  http://news.trust.org/item/20200127092603-ks7hg

“Cheap housing, deep unease and intense resilience - all forces that are driving a clutch of Americans to swap city life for a fresh start off grid and far from civilisation. Some are survivalists, among them high fliers who fear a looming, urban catastrophe and the mayhem that might follow. Others want a greener, gentler life untainted by the malign forces of capitalism and uncertainty of mainstream politics. Whichever camp, realtors say the new dropouts are not "crackpots" and often include affluent professionals whose run for the hills has boosted rural land values and started to change their property market. "I've had hedge-fund managers and billionaires that have made purchases, and they all have concerns about the direction of the economy and social stability," said John E. Haynes, president of Retreat Realty in North Carolina. "We're on that upward trend," he said. "Inventory of that land on the market is tighter." Haynes has worked in real estate for decades. About four years ago, he rebranded his company to pitch property to a new and growing breed of buyer - those motivated by "concerns about social stability". He had a record year in 2019, and was busy in the run-up to the 2016 election, when Donald Trump came to power.

The Pope’s Commo Economics Summit By Peter West

     Wow, the communists are crawling out of the woodwork now.
  https://affirmativeright.blogspot.com/2020/01/pope-francis-calls-marxist-economic.html

“As if there needs to be further evidence that the current occupant of St. Peter’s Chair in Rome is a Marxist, the announcement of an upcoming conference at Assisi entitled the “Economy of Francesco” should convince any skeptic otherwise. In his invitation letter to “young economists and entrepreneurs worldwide,” Bergoglio sets the agenda for the Leftist confab quite clearly which is virulently anti-market, a call for massive redistribution of wealth, and a reordering of the current economic systems of the world with a healthy dose of climate change nonsense.

The UN’s Climate Agenda By James Reed

     No stone is being left unturned in the drive to polish off white Western civilisation. It has been going on for at least a century, accelerating since the 1960s. The latest “bring ‘em in” strategy from the UN is climate refugees:
  https://www.cbc.ca/news/technology/climate-refugees-un-1.5435843

“The world needs to prepare for millions of people being driven from their homes by the impact of climate change, the United Nations High Commissioner for Refugees said on Tuesday. Speaking to Reuters at the World Economic Forum, Filippo Grandi said a UN ruling this week meant those fleeing as a result of climate change deserved international protection, and that it had broad implications for governments. The UN Human Rights Committee made the landmark ruling on Monday in relation to Ioane Teitiota, from the Pacific nation of Kiribati, who brought a case against New Zealand after authorities denied his claim of asylum. We must be prepared for a large surge of people moving against their will.- Filippo Grandi,  UN High Commissioner for Refugees "The ruling says if you have an immediate threat to your life due to climate change, due to the climate emergency, and if you cross the border and go to another country, you should not be sent back, because you would be at risk of your life, just like in a war or in a situation of persecution," Grandi said. "We must be prepared for a large surge of people moving against their will," he said. "I wouldn't venture to talk about specific numbers, it's too speculative, but certainly we're talking about millions here."

Notes From Around 30-7-2020 D.B.Smith - Why I Fight

     The following is a passage from J.T. (Jack) Lang’s book“Why I Fight. Jack Lang was a Labour Premier of NSW in the 1930’s. The same Labour Party that gave us the Commonwealth Bank was changing and Jack Lang’s words showed he was not one of the new order that brought down that same bank, and indeed the final sale of the bank that financed our WW1 effort at no cost to the nation, was to be enacted by one of the new white collar labour breed, one Paul Keating. Now we have no one in parliament who would save our nation through our own national bank, they are puppets all to the international bankers who control the world with DEBT finance.
Today there is there is no voice of opposition, all are silenced by the smear, either the “funny money” label, or “the extreme right wing” or even the “anti- semetic” label are swung into action in the media to denigrate and ostracise any who would oppose their program of world control. The churches pat themselves on the back for their ambulance aid work but none question what DEBT is as they are all beholden to the banks to some degree today. As Jeremy Lee said in his book Australia 2000 What Will We Tell Our Children, “It was not always so”. If I am wrong on this point I would love to be made aware of any statements from a leading Church, questioning why we have poverty amid the plenty of this nation of ours, let alone a Christ who would dare throw the money changers out of the temple of human lives. Jack Lang chose to stand against the changes he saw and was expelled from the Labour party.  Are we standing against those “ugly Factors” that are making a mockery of Divine bounty, or will it be left to our children to break the chains that bind them. This world is in a revolutionary state and the Marxists of all persuasions are exploiting the situation to their advantage, ie to divide the community to such a degree as we see in the USA right now. Only a directive from a President to use live ammunition will dispel the riots. Do not be fooled, Black Lives Matter has nothing to do with the death /murder of George Floyd, but was the result of well -prepared and well organised ground for rebellion against political order, the genesis of things to come. Read Solzhenitsyn. Lockdown is not “the new norm” but the thin edge of totalitarian authority.

Start the Day, the Economist Way! By James Reed

     A great poem by social creditor C. J. Dennis, a poem sometimes quoted, but it should be put on everyone’s fridge door, next to the shopping and to-do list:

Another Economic Riddle
by C.J.Dennis

I venerate economists
As very learned blokes,
But when in paradox they speak
Their meaning oft I vainly seek,
Suspecting subtle jokes.
They say the whole world’s down and out;
But here’s what I can’t see:
If every land, beyond all doubt,
In all the world is up the spout –
Then who’s the mortgagee?
Do we owe money in the moon,
Or some celestial land?
Or have we creditors in Mars,
Or other fixed and unfixed stars,
Who hold our notes of hand?
If not, why all the fuss and fret?
I’ve conned it o’er and o’er,
And find no clear solution yet.
If all the earth is deep in debt,
Who is the creditor?
When men go into bankruptcy
The case is plain as day:
What is not in the dear wife’s name
Grim creditors will promptly claim,
And assets melt away.
But when a whole wide world’s in soak
And cannot raise the tin,
Here’s where I half suspect a joke:
When all the earth goes stony broke,
Who puts the bailiffs in?

Coin Shortages By James Reed

     There is apparently a coin shortage in the US, which is no doubt part of the conspiracy to create a cashless society. The new Black Death was part of this too, as physical money became too dirty to touch. I imagine that down the track, given the enormous New World Order success of this pandemic, the next one will eliminate cash forever.

“Last month, the Federal Reserve warned coin disruptions were coming due to the COVID-19 pandemic and shutdown of the economy. Here's an excerpt of the warning: "The COVID-19 pandemic has significantly disrupted the supply chain and normal circulation patterns for U.S. coin. "In the past few months, coin deposits from depository institutions to the Federal Reserve have declined significantly, and the U.S. Mint's production of the coin also decreased due to measures put in place to protect its employees." In late June, supermarket chain Meijer Inc. told customers at 250 stores that "self-checkout registers" will only accept "electronic payment only" due to a "national coin shortage."
