Sex Mad Elites By Chris Knight

     At some indeterminate point, tragedy becomes comedy, or tragicomedy, as the Epstein sex scandal has become. The following story led to me bursting out in cynically depressed laughter, like an insane, decaying clown,  because the real fools are the population of sheeple, who allow their lambs to be eaten by sexual predators.
  https://www.zerohedge.com/news/2019-07-31/epstein-planned-seed-human-race-his-dna-impregnating-scores-women-new-mexico

“Jailed pedophile Jeffrey Epstein wanted to seed the human race with his DNA by impregnating scores of women at his giant ranch in New Mexico, according to the New York Times. He also wanted his penis and head cryogenically frozen. Epstein shared his scheme with scientists and other confidants over the years, according to four people who were in on the plan - which "reflected his longstanding fascination with what has become known as transhumanism: the science of improving the human population through technologies like genetic engineering and artificial intelligence," according to the report. "On multiple occasions starting in the early 2000s, Mr. Epstein told scientists and businessmen about his ambitions to use his New Mexico ranch as a base where women would be inseminated with his sperm and would give birth to his babies, according to two award-winning scientists and an adviser to large companies and wealthy individuals, all of whom Mr. Epstein told about it," according to the report. Once, at a dinner at Mr. Epstein’s mansion on Manhattan’s Upper East Side, Mr. Lanier said he talked to a scientist who told him that Mr. Epstein’s goal was to have 20 women at a time impregnated at his 33,000-square-foot Zorro Ranch in a tiny town outside Santa Fe. Mr. Lanier said the scientist identified herself as working at NASA, but he did not remember her name.

The Question of Gun Ownership By John Steele

     Back to the issue of gun banning in New Zealand:
  https://www.wishtv.com/news/international/proposed-new-zealand-law-says-owning-guns-is-not-a-right/?fbclid=IwAR1Su0p46JoNHDm-nJ5kmzJHxBL-W2WMuUuVgSFHyIY0vWbWNm3ZCKBnT1E

“New Zealand’s government is planning further restrictions to gun ownership in a law proposed Monday that emphasizes owning guns is a privilege and not a right. The new law would ban the sale of guns to overseas visitors, create a register to track all guns in the country, and require gun owners to renew their gun licenses every five years instead of every 10. It would also allow police to weigh other factors such as a person’s mental health and even what they had been posting on social media to determine whether they were fit to own a gun. The government hopes lawmakers will approve the legislation by the end of the year. The proposed measures come after New Zealand in April rushed through legislation to ban so-called military-style weapons such as AR-15 style rifles after a lone gunman in March killed 51 people at two Christchurch mosques. The government has launched a buyback scheme to compensate people for the outlawed semi-automatics, and has so far collected and destroyed more than 3,200 weapons. The gun buyback and amnesty runs until December. Prime Minister Jacinda Ardern said she thinks the vast majority of New Zealanders disagree with the U.S. model under which gun ownership is seen as a constitutional right and is interpreted by many to be a defense against potential government overreach. Ardern said that growing up in a rural farming area, she always understood New Zealanders had a practical need for owning guns. “But at the same time I don’t think that extends to this view that every New Zealand citizen has the need and right to generally arm itself,” she said. “We’re a society that I think has always drawn that very clear distinction.”

Kalifornication: The Rogue State By Charles Taylor

     California is madness mixed with amphetamines, then rolled in filth, a fast approaching Third World cesspool that keeps on giving … more anarcho-tyranny. Consider:
  https://www.zerohedge.com/news/2019-07-30/california-should-be-embarrassed-state-passes-law-banning-trump-ballot-unless-tax

“On Tuesday, Calif. Gov. Gavin Newsom signed a bill requiring President Trump to either release his tax returns or he won't appear on the ballot in the state. Under SB 27, called the "Presidential Tax Transparency and Accountability Act," any candidate running for president or governor in California must file copies of their tax returns from the previous five years to the California secretary of State, or their names will be stricken from the ballot, the Hill reports. Newsom argued that, as the largest economic engine within the US, California has a "responsibility" to demand this additional information (for the record: the Constitution doesn't say anything about candidates releasing tax returns - though the federal income tax didn't exist back on). "As one of the largest economies in the world and home to one in nine Americans eligible to vote, California has a special responsibility to require this information of presidential and gubernatorial candidates," Newsom said. "These are extraordinary times and states have a legal and moral duty to do everything in their power to ensure leaders seeking the highest offices meet minimal standards, and to restore public confidence. The disclosure required by this bill will shed light on conflicts of interest, self-dealing, or influence from domestic and foreign business interest." A Trump campaign spokesman called the new law "unconstitutional," and insisted that there was a good reason why California's last governor, Jerry Brown, refused to sign the legislation. In a statement, Trump campaign spokesman Tim Murtaugh called the move "unconstitutional."

More on the Epstein Elites Sex Scandal By Chris Knight

     We have been covering the Epstein upper elites/1 percenters sex scandal. The latest, which is predictable, is that it is predicted that Epstein will be killed to silence him:

  https://www.zerohedge.com/news/2019-07-30/epstein-accused-forcibly-raping-15-year-old-new-docs-filed-day-mysterious-prison

“A lawyer for one of Jeffrey Epstein’s victims fears that a “hit” has been put out on Epstein’s life that will prevent him from implicating powerful people who are complicit in the sex trafficking of girls and young women.
Spencer Kuvin doubts that Epstein’s recently sustained jail injuries were a suicide attempt, telling the Sun, “I question whether or not it was a true suicide attempt that Mr Epstein was involved in in jail or whether or not there may be some powerful people who just don’t want him to talk.” Kuvin questioned how Epstein could have choked himself, adding, “There’s no doubt in my mind that no jail will protect you when there’s powerful people that want to reach you – wherever you are.” Even if Epstein is kept away from the general prison population, “there are still people who can get to him, ultimately,” warned Kuvin. Kuvin speculated whether Epstein would “survive” to make his upcoming trial, comparing the situation to the 1959 Profumo affair, where socialite Stephen Ward was put on trial for procuring young women for the British elite but killed himself before the verdict was announced. “We know that Mr Ward, who was involved in that affair and the procurement of women for some notable people, was given bail and committed suicide while out on bail – so it’ll be interesting to see whether or not Mr Epstein attempts again to get out on bail and if he does whether he survives between now and the date of his trial,” said Kuvin. The lawyer also noted that Eyes Wide Shut-style sex parties attended by masked men had been taking place for over 50 years.”

The Great Obama Corruption Eruption By Chris Knight

     Everything is bigger and dirtier in America. Like the Russia stole the 2016 election from Queen Hillary, which has now ben revealed to have come from the Obama White House:
  https://www.thegatewaypundit.com/2019/07/exclusive-transcripts-obtained-of-former-fbi-chief-of-staff-james-rybicki-testifying-russia-conspiracy-came-from-obamas-white-house/

“Transcripts obtained from the FBI in a request for information show that James Rybicki, the former FBI Chief of Staff under James Comey, testified that the Russia Conspiracy sham came from Obama’s White House in October 2016. We reported last week that businessman Ed Butowsky filed a lawsuit where he outed reporter Ellen Ratneras his source for information that Seth Rich and his brother provided WikiLeaks the DNC emails before the 2016 election, not Russia.  This totally destroys the FBI and Mueller’s claims that Russians hacked the DNC to obtain these emails. Butowsky claimsin his lawsuit: Ms. Rattner said Mr. Assange told her that Seth Rich and his brother, Aaron, were responsible for releasing the DNC emails to Wikileaks. Ms. Rattner said Mr. Assange wanted the information relayed to Seth’s parents, as it might explain the motive for Seth’s murder. Today we have exclusive information that Butowsky and his attorney, Ty Clevenger, requested and obtained documents from the FBI related to their case. According to the duo, they obtained the transcript from former FBI Chief of Staff James Rybicki where he states that the Obama White House was the entity that was pushing the Russia conspiracy as early as October 2016.”

Changing Races; Changing Places By Chris Knight

     A good article by Steve Sailer on the emerging issue in America, as the build up to civil War II: can American Whites prevent the rising tide of colour, that threatens to demographically displace them, and is doing this racist, and if it is racist, then will the sky fall?
  https://www.takimag.com/article/our-new-planet-is-going-to-be-great/

“The fundamental issue of the 2020 presidential campaign is rapidly becoming whether or not America’s whites, as exemplified in the person of Donald Trump, have the right to block the world’s blacks and Muslims, as exemplified in the person of Somalia-born Rep. Ilhan Omar (D-MN), from immigrating en masse to the United States. Or is the entire notion of white citizens democratically voting to keep out nonwhites too racistly triggering for more enlightened entities, such as the Ninth Circuit Court of Appeals, to allow? The United Nations’ publication last month of its World Population Prospects 2019 adds important perspective to this question. For example, in 1991, when Omar’s family fled Somalia due to their complicity in the genocidal regime of the dictator Siad Barre, the population of Somalia was only 7 million. Today, 28 chaotic years later, Somalia has more than doubled in size to 15 million despite immense outflows of emigrants. The U.N. forecasts that Somalia’s population will reach 35 million in 2050 and 76 million in 2100. Alternatively, millions of Somalis (or, quite possibly, tens of millions of Somalis) might prefer to follow Rep. Omar to the Magic Dirt of the first world. According to a Gallup poll, at present one-third of the population of sub-Saharan African wants to migrate, and it’s unlikely that additional population growth will make Africa more attractive. Here’s my latest update of what I call The Most Important Graph in the World:

The Coming Anarchy: Baltimore By Charles Taylor

     An ex-Baltimore martial artist that I know has a blog, and sometimes does articles and podcasts lamenting about the disintegration of his home town, Baltimore. The crime is far worse that Donald Trump has indicated. My friend said that when he returned for a quick visit, he was subjected to urban predation at an average of two confrontations a day, fortunately not with guns, but with cheap knives. He has a concealed carry permit for his home state of Idaho, but Baltimore is heavily gun-controlled, basically for law abiding citizens, while the “hood rats,” as locals call gang bangers, have the choicest weapons. The rest of the multicult needs guns for their crimes and predation. He carried nunchaku in his coat, with one part down a sleave, so that it could be whipped out quick, drawn in less than a second, and ready for action.

“Last weekend, President Donald Trump noticed that black-run Baltimore is a disaster. In tweets aimed at Maryland Rep. Elijah Cummings and his complaints about border control, the President listed some of Baltimore’s problems:

Immigration: An Existential Threat to Western Civilisation By Richard Miller

     While America, western Europe, Australia, and the rest of the West are sleepwalking into immigration-fuelled demographic oblivion, some are putting up a spirited resistance against the dark globalist forces of evil:
  https://www.breitbart.com/politics/2019/07/27/hungary-illegal-migration-threat-european-culture-civilization/
  https://www.voanews.com/europe/hungarys-top-diplomat-illegal-migrants-threaten-european-civilization

“Hungary's foreign minister is objecting to the treatment of ethnic Hungarians in neighboring Ukraine, even as he defends his government's goal of preserving Hungary's own ethnic identity by shutting out migrants. Sitting down with VOA's Russian service in New York, Budapest's top diplomat and trade minister, Péter Szijjártó, decried the treatment of an estimated 150,000 ethnic Hungarians living in Ukraine's Transcarpathia border province, where public schools recently came under a nationwide mandate to teach the Ukrainian language. Ukraine's April 2019 language law, championed by former President Petro Poroshenko, obliges all citizens to know the language and mandates its use by civil servants, soldiers, doctors and teachers while performing their official duties. Hungary and Russia have condemned the law as politically divisive, saying it denies basic rights to ethnic minorities on Ukrainian soil. Hungary, a NATO member, has retaliated by blocking meetings of the NATO Ukraine Commission, a regional security consultation forum for alliance members and Ukrainian officials.

Letter to the Editor - Australia is deeply split on this issue and thus any referendum appears doomed

To The Australian        Former High Court chief justice Robert French simply ignores the cogent arguments which have been brought up against any kind of amendment to the Constitution favouring the Aborigines ("Voice of reason is not beyond us", 31/7). He states, correctly, that "recognition is a fact". That is true and that is where it should end. However, he adds that recognition in the Constitution "would reflect an existing national growth of respect for our First Peoples." He does not say how or why; and there is reason to suspect that popular affection for the Aborigines is actually waning a little as more and more Australians become aware that "the Aboriginal industry" is engaging in selfish demands at the expense of the rest of us. French concludes that "the creation of a national consensus should not be beyond our wit." That is dreamtime stuff! Australia is deeply split on this issue and thus any referendum appears doomed.

Letter to the Editor - There are too many good arguments against which remain unanswered

To The Age        Labor frontbench MP Linda Burney claims that there is "enormous support" for enshrining a proposed Aboriginal voice in the Constitution ("MPs warn of failure in campaign", 31/7). Is she engaging in wishful thinking? If in any referendum the "No" case is properly financed and supported by the government as well as the "Yes" case, it is most unlikely that the referendum will succeed. There are too many good arguments against which remain unanswered. If Scott Morrison and his colleagues are having second thoughts on this matter, good on them! They will be wise to insist that the interests of all Australians need to be consulted and respected.

Demo-rats, Alright! By Chris Knight

     A psychologist friend once cynically said to me that “humans are 99 percent rat!” Reflecting upon this after years in the cultural wars, I feel that he was being hard on the rats. The level of mind-numbing conformity among progressives is stunning:
  https://www.breitbart.com/politics/2019/07/28/democrat-opposition-immigration-controls-surges/

“The Democrat Party’s opposition to any and all controls on illegal and legal immigration has surged for decades leading up to the 2020 presidential election, analysis reveals. Analysis of polls and surveys from the 1980s to this year, conducted by Georgia State University’s Zach Goldberg for Tablet Magazine, finds that Democrat voters who once supported, by a majority, some forms of immigration controls now tend to oppose national borders in favor of mass illegal and legal immigration. Between 2014 and 2019, Goldberg finds that Democrat voters who called illegal immigration a “somewhat” or “very serious” problem facing the U.S. declined by 30 points. A year into former President Obama’s second term, about eight-in-ten Democrat voters said illegal immigration was a problem compared to today with only about half of Democrat voters saying this. Even with the most Democrat-centric plans — like providing amnesty to all 11 to 22 million illegal aliens in the U.S. so long as they learn the English language — support has fallen quickly. In 2006, about 85 percent of Democrat voters said they would support an amnesty that mandates illegal aliens learn English. In 2013, that support fell to less than 70 percent. Likewise, in 2002, about 62 percent of Democrat voters said large influxes of foreign refugees and immigrants was a “critical threat” to the nation. Fast-forward to 2018 when less than two-in-ten Democrat voters said mass immigration was a “critical threat” to the U.S. The increasingly open borders, mass immigration agenda of Democrats — driven primarily by white liberals, as research has found — has put the party in-line with the big business lobby that favors an amnesty for illegal aliens, an increase in legal immigration levels to keep U.S. wages low, and more temporary foreign visa workers to replace Americans in white-collar jobs.”

Antifa Terrorism By Charles Taylor

     Some of your writers have been pursuing the line that the Antifa are domestic terrorists. It sure looks like Don Trump has been thinking along the same lines:

Google’s Election Manipulations By Charles Taylor

     With progressives still clinging to the “Russia stole the election from Queen Hillary” mantra, it is ironic to see the amount of material showing that Google itself is the great election meddler.
  https://www.breitbart.com/politics/2019/07/24/dr-robert-epstein-googles-ephemeral-experiences-manipulate-people-on-a-massive-scale/

“Dr. Robert Epstein, the senior research psychologist at the American Institute for Behavioral Research and Technology, appeared on SiriusXM’s Breitbart News Daily to discuss Google’s latest tactics in election manipulation and how to combat them with host Alex Marlow. Dr. Robert Epstein appeared on Breitbart News Daily this week alongside host and Breitbart News editor-in-chief Alex Marlow to discuss the current state of Google and how the company could use its technology to influence voters. Host Alex Marlow discussed Epstein’s research saying: “I think you put out some pretty hard data on how many votes you think were moved in the 2016 election and I think you estimated it was over two million or so, is that not the case?” Epstein responded: “Well it was at least 2.6 million and it could have been as many as 10.4 million depending on how aggressive google was in using the various tools they have available to them to shift votes. I can’t pin it down exactly but I know it’s in that range.”

That’s Socialism for You! By Chris Knight

     It is good to point out the inconsistencies of the socialists, whenever we see them. Take US geriatric socialist Bernie Sanders, not to be confused with Colonel Sanders of the fried chicken fame:
  https://www.shtfplan.com/headline-news/socialist-bernie-sanders-schooled-by-a-quick-lesson-on-minimum-wage_07232019

“Democratic socialist Bernie Sanders was recently schooled by a lesson on minimum wage.  After raising the minimum wage of his staffers to $15 per hour, the socialist cut everyone’s hours. “Breadlines Bernie” found out on his own what a disaster liberal policies can be on a person’s personal finances. After cutting hours to make good on his $15/hour pledge, Sanders was mocked by both sides for his inability to understand simple mathematics and economics 101. “Democrat presidential candidate Bernie Sanders announced this weekend he will cut staffers’ hours so that they can effectively be paid a $15-an-hour minimum wage, prompting mockery from critics who say the move is more evidence that Sanders’ plan to raise the national minimum wage is hypocritical and would only lead to less work and more unemployment,” reports Fox News.”

Zero Emissions Australia? By Viv Forbes


    

     It may be possible for a perpetual committee of green bureaucrats to electrify Australia with a vast but flimsy spider-web of power lines connecting consumers to wind turbines, solar panels, lithium batteries and pumped-hydro batteries. In this wonder-world, electric scooters and mini-cars will be mandated and demand rationing will be imposed. But this costly, ramshackle UN dream-come-true will never be competitive with nearby industries in China, India and Japan using a powerful backbone of reliable low-cost nuclear, coal, gas and diesel power, decorated with bits of green tinsel to placate the energy commissars of the UN. These Asian tigers will get their coal from Mongolia, Indonesia and South Africa, their oil and gas from the Middle East and their uranium from Asia, Canada and Africa.

The Right to Monogamy? By Mrs Vera West

     Affirmative Right site has some occasionally good articles, but a lot that I disagree with. On the positive front, there has been a series arguing that monogamy is needed as the foundation for society, for Western civilisation to survive. Beyond the usual conservative argument centred around the production of children, there is also the aspect of sexual satisfaction, and not a lot of this occurs under the feminist regime:
  https://affirmativeright.blogspot.com/2019/07/monogamy-and-survival-of-west-part-four.html#more
  https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=N7LN14IpVy0
  https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=eB7qKbZWoWk
  https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=3WMuzhQXJoY

“Is there a fundamental right to monogamy? The male desire for sex and female companionship is a natural biological instinct, like eating or sleeping. If a man is unable to satisfy this fundamental impulse, he loses his powers of concentration and becomes unproductive. Eventually, he is forced to drop out of society or lash out. A growing underclass of unmarried men will inevitably lead to massive civil strife and social disruption, including bloodshed. Expecting these men to just exercise self-control is both unreasonable and absurd. Lifelong celibacy has never worked, not even for the Christian church, which degenerated morally and intellectually because of it. Imagine the agony of the inferior male, who is forced to endure a life of unwanted bachelorhood, his libido mercilessly titillated by a liberal society that allows women to dress as scantily-clad ****** in public. In reality, it is only the liberal totalitarians who must practice self-control; their nihilist and self-destructive obsession with feminism, multicultural policy and immigration from the Third World are more akin to the dancing and flagellation manias of the Middle Ages than the beliefs of rational men. If it is in society's best interest to ensure that all men reach their full innate potential, then society must provide the necessary conditions allowing men to exercise their right to monogamous family life whenever they so choose.”

Animal Rights Domestic Terrorists: Eat More Meat in Counter-Protest! By James Reed

     Yes, along with Antifa, the Left has generated its usual band of violent protestors:
  https://www.independent.co.uk/news/world/australasia/animal-rights-activists-australia-domestic-terrorists-new-south-wales-a9015346.html?utm_source=reddit.com

“Animal rights activists who invade farms to stage protests will be hit with huge new fines in measures announced by Australia’s south-eastern state government after they were branded “domestic terrorists” by the region’s deputy leader. The New South Wales (NSW) government has introduced on-the-spot trespassing charges of $1,000 (£565) for each “vigilante” caught illegally entering private farmland. The new rules, which come into force on 1 August, could also see individuals charged up to $220,000 (£124,000) and corporations up to $440,000 (£248,000) for any major violations of the Biosecurity Act. “Vigilantes who are entering our farmers’ property illegally are nothing short of domestic terrorists, NSW deputy premier John Barilaro, in remarks widely reported by Australian media. “Our farmers have had a gutful. They don’t deserve, nor have time, to be dealing with illegal trespass and vile harassment from a bunch of virtue-signalling thugs.”

The Art of Self Defense and Toxic Films, Not Masculinity By John Steele

     I have not seen this movie, and base my critique on just the shorts that I have seen, but that is enough for me to despise it. I doubt that I could sit through these politically correct deconstructions without exhibiting toxic masculinity, radiating it in all directions, like a skunk, but proud of it.
  https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=7Bms6Hba-3A
  https://www.dailyherald.com/entlife/20190726/art-of-self-defense-examines-satirizes-toxic-masculinity

This movie, like almost everything excreted by Hollywood today, has a politically correct N. W. O message, this time that, masculinity is toxic. Thus, a weak male goes to learn karate to defend himself from thugs, but the entire self- defense scene is toxic masculinity. There are females involved in it, but pass over it, they are all oppressed by the patriarchy too. Conveniently, the karate sensei is white, and there would have been a bit of a racism paradox if Hollywood had taken an Asian sensei, but they never make things hard for themselves, just like all criminals are white Nordics, with the lighter the phenotype, the eviller. “Director Riley Stearns says he didn't realize he was making a perfect movie for 2019 when he started writing "The Art of Self-Defense" four years ago. But his darkly comedic riff on toxic masculinity starring Jesse Eisenberg as a timid and "weak" man who takes up karate just kept becoming more relevant. The Harvey Weinstein allegations broke during the shoot in 2017 and the #MeToo movement became a phenomenon. "It was kind of weird that this idea that I had been feeling was very personal to me was really starting to spread into a direct discussion," Stearns said. "More and more people are relating to the film in ways that I originally wouldn't have intended, which is hugely humbling and very interesting to see."

Count on Clinton Body Count Damage Control By Chris Knight

     The Epstein controversy has led to the resurrection of the Clinton Body Count conspiracy, that some less than desirable things have happened to a number of people who may have stepped on Billy the Goat, and Hillary’s blue suede shoes. Look, let the iconic Rolling Stone tell it:
  https://www.rollingstone.com/culture/culture-features/jeffrey-epstein-clinton-conspiracy-theories-twitter-863446/
  https://www.rt.com/usa/465068-clinton-body-count-twitter/
  https://twitter.com/clintonmurders?lang=en

“On Wednesday night, NBC News reported that disgraced financier Jeffrey Epstein, who is currently awaiting trial on charges of sex trafficking and sex trafficking conspiracy, was found injured and semi-conscious in his cell with two abrasions on his neck. While initial details were sketchy, sources at Metropolitan Correctional Center, the prison where Epstein was being held, suggested to NBC News that the injury was possibly the result of a failed suicide attempt, though investigators have not yet ruled out that another inmate may have assaulted him. et on social media, one explanation alone dominated the conversation: the Clintons did it. On Thursday morning, #ClintonBodyCount was one of the top trending topics on Twitter, with many speculating that Epstein’s injuries were the result of an attempt on his life that was orchestrated by his former friends. A list circulating on social media of supposed Clinton “victims,” or people who had purportedly had some connection to Bill and/or Hillary Clinton who had died by suicide. A Daily Beast story published that morning reporting that Epstein had visited the White House a number of times in the early 1990s only added fuel to the fire. Another rumor that spread on Twitter focused on former Westchester County police officer Nicholas Tartaglione, another MCC inmate convicted of having killed four men involved in a drug trafficking ring, who reportedly was brought in for questioning regarding Epstein’s injuries.
