Australia is for Sale, and has Been for a Long Time By James Reed

     I have assembled a large number of articles updating the vast selloff of Australia which is occurring now. We have pretty much lost this country, and organisations that should be fighting this, are caving in:
  https://cairnsnews.org/2019/10/23/national-farmers-federation-which-doesnt-represent-family-farmers-wants-them-to-make-way-for-china/

“KAP Federal Member for Kennedy, Bob Katter has today slammed the National Farmers Federation (NFF) after they appeared on national television and announced they were lobbying the government to provide financial incentives to drought-affected farmers to leave their land; a campaign which is being echoed by the National Party. A livid Mr Katter said, “Your solution is to get rid of the farmers. It is in the back of the mind of every intelligent Australian ‘why do you want these people out?’ So your big corporate masters, Chinese investors, prominent amongst them can buy them out and we can have corporate farmers.  The city suits and foreign nations will be our farmers and we peasants will be out there working for nothing in little towns that are vanishing. That is the solution by National Farmers Federation.”

Our Degenerate Universities By James Reed

     Here is a good article by an academic, Thomas Dalton, describing how universities operate “from the inside.” The usual story of woe, that I report on all the time. But, on a positive note, he gives some advice to students from the Alt Right, about how to cope with life  in this enemy territory:

On Selling the Family Farm for a Mess of Pottage By James Reed

     Here is an excellent speech by Helen Dalton MP member for Murray on the foreign sale of our land, water and assets. She makes the obvious point that border protection is more than stopping people in illegal boats getting in. What security does a nation have where 52 million hectares of prime farm land has been allowed to be sold to foreigners? Japan, China, and most of South East Asian would never do this. Why is Australia so cucked?

Turn Down the Heat By James Reed

     I get a warm and fuzzy feeling every time I see politically correct cubs, trying to be oh so morally superior, as kings of their moral mountains, getting a taste of the real world, with a smack down:
  https://www.thetimes.co.uk/article/professor-at-st-johns-college-oxford-turns-oil-row-into-a-heated-debate-0zr2wpmb5
  https://www.theblaze.com/news/professor-brilliant-response-to-student-climate-protesters

“A professor at St. John's College, Oxford University, just taught student protesters an invaluable lesson in personal sacrifice. According to the school newspaper, Oxford students have been occupying St. John's College since Wednesday in protest of the school's investments in fossil fuels. Dozens of students have reportedly set up camp in the front quad with signs and banners, vowing to remain until their demands are met. Amid the protesting, professor Andrew Parker, also a manager of the school's financial affairs, received a letter from two students requesting a meeting to discuss their demands — including the school's divestment from fossil fuels. His speedy response was almost certainly not what they were expecting.

The Cash Ban By James Reed

     The Morrison government has delayed the Senate report on the cash ban until 28 February, for a longer period to consider the evidence. Perhaps all of the calls being made by people concerned about losing one of our greatest freedoms; to buy things when we want, privately, may be getting through. So keep it up! This needs to be fought tooth and nail because without cash, people will be at the mercy of banks who can “debank” them anytime they want, meaning that they will be locked out of the economy. I imagine that this will be done to political activists from the Right, to gun shops and any one the systems does not like, to crush them financially.
Call your Senators to demand they vote against this rank corruption and assault on our civil liberties!

The Pope’s Global Commo Tax By Peter West

     I have been waiting for this one, and it was only a matter of time; the Pope has gone full commo, calling for global wealth redistribution:
  https://www.breitbart.com/economy/2020/02/06/tax-the-rich-pope-francis-calls-for-global-wealth-redistribution/

“Tax cuts for the wealthy constitute a “structure of sin,” Pope Francis said Wednesday in a passionate address calling for international wealth redistribution. “Every year hundreds of billions of dollars, which should be paid in taxes to fund health care and education, accumulate in tax haven accounts,” the pontiff told participants in a Vatican seminar, “thus impeding the possibility of the dignified and sustained development of all social agents.”
“Today’s structures of sin include repeated tax cuts for the richest people, often justified in the name of investment and development,” Francis told the meeting organized by the Pontifical Academy for Social Sciences.
During his discourse, the pope repeated his conviction that poverty is on the rise worldwide and “the poor increase around us.” With the passage of time and the advances of civilization the number of poor people increases rather than diminishing, Francis similarly asserted last June, and “the poor are always poorer, and today they are poorer than ever.” As a Brookings Institution report noted in late 2018, however, the world is currently experiencing “the lowest prevalence of extreme poverty ever recorded in human history — less than 8 percent,” and that number falls with each passing year. According to the widely used “international poverty line,” people are considered to be in “extreme poverty” if they live on less than $1.90 per day or its equivalent.

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.

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.

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.

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 . . .”

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.”

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.

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."

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.”

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."

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.

Soros in Davos By Charles Taylor

     Trump was in Davos, giving a soft nationalist speech, which is better than nothing. But Georgie boy was there too, to counter him at every corner, as he does in his 24/7 job:
  https://www.breitbart.com/politics/2020/01/23/george-soros-in-davos-2020-election-will-determine-fate-of-the-world/

“Left-wing billionaire George Soros on Thursday reportedly warned that the 2020 election will determine the “fate of the world” and lashed out at President Donald Trump during a private dinner event at the World Economic Forum in Davos, Switzerland. Soros, the 89-year-old founder of the progressive advocacy organization Open Society Foundations, accused the president of being a “con man” and a “narcissist” who wants the world to “revolve around him,” according to CNBC. “When his fantasy of becoming president became a reality,” his ego swelled, Soros said, adding: “This has turned his narcissism into a malignant disease.” Soros, who has yet to endorse a 2020 Democrat candidate, then said that this year’s election will decide the “fate of the world,” CNBC reports. In October, the billionaire argued White House contender Sen. Elizabeth Warren (D-MA) is the “most qualified to be president,” but stopped short of formally throwing his support behind her. This, of course, is not the first time the hedge fund manager has taken aim at President Trump at the World Economic Forum. Last year, Soros criticized the president’s negotiating style against China, which culminated in the signing of a phase one trade agreement last Wednesday. “Regrettably, President Trump seems to be following a different course: Make concessions to China and declare victory while renewing his attacks on U.S. allies,” Soros said at the time.

London is Off-Limits By Richard Miller

     When I first read the headline that London was off-limits, I thought that this related to the wave of crime and knife attacks, and the white flight that has made once merry, London, majority non-white. But, it is way more complex than just a racial apocalypse angle, and involves our “friends” the elites:
  https://www.independent.co.uk/news/uk/home-news/london-inequality-social-mobility-sutton-trust-meritocracy-unpaid-internships-privilege-a9295986.html

“London has cemented itself as the UK’s “elite epicentre” since the 1980s and has become increasingly off-limits to those from less privileged backgrounds, an extensive study suggests. The “Dick Whittington vision” of moving to the capital to make one’s fortune is largely a myth, the Sutton Trust’s report found. The skyrocketing cost of living in London means those from privileged backgrounds are the most able to migrate there and take advantage of the most sought-after career opportunities, researchers concluded, finding three quarters of those who move to London for elite jobs are already advantaged. Furthermore, the analysis of census-based data suggested the vast majority of the most socially-mobile people born between 1965 and 1981 had never made a long-distance move, choosing instead to remain close to home and benefit from the growing spread of professional jobs across the country. However, social mobility appears to be decreasing, with the number of men rising to professional and managerial classes from the lowest occupational classes declining from 20 per cent in those born between 1955 and 1961, to 12 per cent in those born two decades later. To combat this rising inequality, the report recommends abolishing unpaid internships, increasing the number of degree-level apprenticeships on offer as an alternative to university, and incentivising state schools to concentrate more on life skills like public speaking, self-control and motivation techniques within their curriculums. “London is essentially off-limits to ambitious people from poorer backgrounds who grow up outside the capital,” said Sutton Trust founder, Sir Peter Lampl. “That means that boosting London is not going to have much impact on making things fairer for anyone other than those already living there. “In spite of the dominance of London, over two thirds of the socially mobile have never made a long-term move. It’s crucial that the new Conservative government implements its policy of creating more opportunities across the country so that talented people can benefit from them wherever they live.”

Do What the Man Says By Bruce Bennett

     Companies will get diverse, or else:
  https://techcrunch.com/2020/01/23/goldman-says-it-wont-take-companies-public-without-at-least-one-diverse-director-heres-what-it-should-have-said/

“Now Goldman Sachs  has made an announcement of its own that’s very much a part of the times: its CEO, David Solomon, today told CNBC that beginning this year, Goldman will no longer take companies public if they don’t have at least one “diverse” member on its board of directors. “Starting on July 1st in the U.S. and Europe, we’re not going to take a company public unless there’s at least one diverse board candidate, with a focus on women,” Solomon said specifically on the network’s “Squawk Box.” Some will, perhaps rightly, see the announcement as little more than marketing. After all, it’s already widely viewed as unacceptable for a company to go public without at least one female board member and preferably far more “diversity” than that. WeWork, for example, tried to go public last year with an all-male board, only to realize soon after that if it wanted to pursue an initial public offering, it had better mix it up a bit. (Of course, by the time it amended its S-1 to name Harvard professor Frances Frei as its first female board member, its offering was already starting to implode.) Adding one’s first female board member ahead of an IPO is such a cliche at this point that the more interesting question is how close to the filing a related announcement will be made.
