Letter to The Editor - It will take great nerve now to keep Australia on a truly democratic path

To The Age         It may well be that now "the prospect of a delayed, even cancelled Brexit" has become the likely result of the immense struggle going on over the constitutional future of the UK ("Parliament says 'bollocks' to May's Brexit bid", 14/3); but there has been little discussion out here of the profound effect on our own national psyche of what looks like a successful sabotage by a political elite of the 52% popular decision in the 2016 referendum in favour of departure from the EU. Australians generally have hitherto looked up to "the mother country" as a bastion of liberty standing as an encouragement to our own attempt to build a nation of similar ideals here. Suddenly we see it as just another more-or-less corrupt oligarchy among the masses around the world. It will take great nerve now to keep Australia on a truly democratic path.

Letter to The Editor - Brexit could easily have been designed and implemented by now

To The Australian        The credibility of Britain as a democracy is in tatters, but not because "Mrs May's proposed deal deserved better than a death knell in the Commons" ("Crunch time for Brexit havoc", 14/3). It is because an unscrupulous political elite has worked ever since the referendum result to frustrate the decision to leave the EU. Mrs May's deal has long been fully exposed as bogus; and now the "Remain" majority in Parliament are set to make a "no deal" exit impossible. Everyone knows that during the last two years a genuine Brexit could easily have been designed and implemented by now. The betrayal of Britain bids fair to see, before too long, the end of free speech, common law protections of personal liberty and the glory of the monarchy. Alas, poor Britain: "unhappy is the land that has no heroes."

Sanctuaries for Guns, an Endangered Species By John Steele

     Ok if they want to have sanctuaries for illegal immigrants, then and even more endangered species, guns, needs many too:
  https://www.theguardian.com/us-news/2019/feb/22/washington-state-county-sheriffs-refuse-to-enforce-gun-laws

“At least 20 county sheriffs in Washington state – more than half of the state’s total – are now publicly refusing to police new gun laws. Several county governments have also passed local resolutions officially opposing enforcement of the laws. The moves may pose a significant threat to Washington’s ambitious agenda on firearms reform, and some activists say it is beginning to resemble a full-scale “constitutionalist” revolt against gun control. A growing number of sheriffs, almost all in rural counties, have publicly stated that they will not, or believe they cannot, enforce the provisions of I1639, a ballot measure passed by popular vote last November which aims to restrict access to and use of assault weapons. Their positions – outlined in written statements, local media reports, and Facebook posts – occupy varying points on a spectrum of resistance.

The Philippines is Not Worth War with China By James Reed

     The president of the Philippines, Rodrigo Duterte, wants to change the name of the country to something like “Maharlika,” because of, well, imperialism, colonialism and all that jazz, as the country was named after King Philip of Spain. Ok, they want to cut ties with the West. Fine, but why should the United States therefore have to defend these fellows from China?

“As President Trump flew home from his Hanoi summit with Kim Jong Un, Mike Pompeo peeled off and flew to Manila. And there the Secretary of State made a startling declaration. Any armed attack by China on a Philippine ship or plane in the South China Sea, he told the Philippine government, will be treated as an attack on an American ship or plane, bringing a U.S. military response. “China’s island building and military activities in the South China Sea threaten your sovereignty, security and, therefore, economic livelihood, as well as that of the United States,” said Pompeo. “As the South China Sea is part of the Pacific, any armed attack on Philippine forces, aircraft or public vessels in the South China Sea will trigger mutual defense obligations under article 4 of our mutual defense treaty.”

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:

Aborting to Save the World By Mrs Vera West

     In this week’s contest between journalists for the craziest politically correct libtard article of the week, my contribution is the one about the woman who had an abortion to save the world! Wow, tell that to the Africans where the average number of children a woman has, in some regions is 5, and even Billy Gates is worried about this population explosion, conspiracies aside.
  https://www.breitbart.com/entertainment/2019/03/02/rose-mcgowan-i-had-an-abortion-so-id-have-more-time-to-change-the-world/

“Actress-turned-activist Rose McGowan claimed that she had an abortion when she was younger so she could “change the world” instead of raising a child. “I have had an abortion and I support this message,” Rose McGowan said in a social media post about abortion. “I am not ashamed, nor should you be. That 60% of those who choose to have abortions are already mothers says a lot- they understand more than anyone. I was on birth control and it failed. I realized I could not bring a child into my world and simultaneously change the world,” she added.

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.

The Money People Always Put Locals after Migrants By Chris Knight

     Apart from being a failure and a traitor to his election promises, President Donald Duck Trump is revealing his true agenda, much like the liberal prime ministers in Australia have constantly done, from Menzies on, and that is to swamp and demographically transform Western societies by unending mass immigration. The White Australia Policy, for example was long opposed in semi-secret by the majority of the Labor and Liberal Parties before it was abandoned by the Liberals in 1965, by stealth. Such changes do not happen over night and are the results of perfidy. That does not matter much now, since we have to move beyond the old nationalist conceptual framework of “save Australia” or conserve it, as there is little left to conserve, or will be once this battle has been done.  Here is some good US material attacking Trump’s illegal immigration mania:  
  https://www.breitbart.com/politics/2019/03/03/trump-immigration-our-corporations/

“Trump’s shift from a wage-boosting legal immigration system to one that benefits corporations and their shareholders coincides with recent big business lobby influence over his White House, at the behest of advisers Jared Kushner and Brooke Rollins. As Breitbart News reported, an alliance of mostly globalist organizations and business groups have had access to the White House to discuss the national legal immigration policy. These groups include Koch Industries, the George W. Bush Center, the U.S. Chamber of Commerce, and the League of United Latin American Citizens (LULAC). Increasing legal immigration would cut the job prospects of the at least 13 million working-age Americans who are either unemployed, not in the labor force but want a job, or who are working part-time jobs but want a good-paying full-time job. Out of those 13 million Americans who are available for U.S. jobs, about 6.5 million are unemployed. Of those unemployed, close to 13 percent are American teenagers who are ready for entry-level U.S. jobs — the exact jobs that low-skilled foreign workers generally tend to take. About 1.6 million Americans are not in the labor force at all, but they want a job, including about 426,000 discouraged American workers who are demoralized by their job prospects. Also, there are 5.1 million Americans who are working part-time jobs but who want full-time jobs. More than 1.4 million of these U.S. part-time workers said they had looked for full-time jobs but could not find any.

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.

Welcome to Clown World By Charles Taylor

     If one needs more proof of the insanity and viciousness of the system that they have set up, consider this: that the Democrats are getting a Congressional hearing (these creatures love talkfests) going because President Trump’s claims that the mainstream media delivers “false news”:
  https://www.breitbart.com/the-media/2019/03/01/democrats-prepare-congressional-hearings-over-trump-saying-fake-news/

“Congressional Democrats are planning to hold hearings about President Trump’s criticisms of establishment news outlets, according to a new report. Bloomberg News reports that the House Judiciary Committee, which is currently led by Jerrold Nadler (D-NY), will seek to investigate Trump calling the media “fake news” and “enemies of the people.” “The committee will study whether such actions either reflect or blur the Constitution’s separation of powers,” the report states.”

Political Correctness Gets Madder and More Vicious Every Day (If That is Possible) By Richard Miller

     There is something of a competition going on with the “journalists” at this site, if we can be called that, to find the most absurd politically correct story of the week. The winner gets a cold beer. So, here we go:
  https://www.dailymail.co.uk/news/article-6762113/French-prosecutors-call-far-Right-leader-Marine-Le-Pen-face-TRIAL.html

“Prosecutors have called for French far-right leader Marine Le Pen to be tried for tweeting pictures of atrocities committed by the Islamic State group, judicial sources said Friday. This could hike further pressure on Le Pen, 50, who already faces legal problems over alleged misuse of EU parliamentary funds. Le Pen shared the gruesome images in December 2015, a few weeks after ISIS jihadists killed 130 people in attacks in Paris. Her move sparking widespread condemnation in France. Prosecutors demanded that another member of her National Rally party, Gilbert Collard, also be tried on similar charges. It will be up to an investigative magistrate to decide whether a trial takes place, with a conviction for 'circulating violent pictures liable to be seen by children' carrying a maximum sentence of three years in prison and a fine of £65,000. Le Pen, who lost to Emmanuel Macron in the 2017 presidential elections, was stripped of her parliamentary immunity over the pictures and charged with circulating violent messages. Last year, she expressed outrage after the investigative magistrate called for her to undergo psychiatric tests in connection with her tweeting.”

Whitewashing Black-on-Black Crime By Richard Miller

     Can it be? The BBC whitewashing black knife crime? The image is of puny journalists with a cans of white paint, going to a knife crime scene, and painting everybody, and everything, white, struggling with each brushstroke, with their fragile muscles burning. But, that is just a metaphor, of course.
  https://www.breitbart.com/europe/2019/03/02/former-equality-chief-accuses-bbc-whitewashing-black-knife-crime/

“Trevor Phillips has accused the BBC of “whitewashing” crime stories by not addressing the high number of black-on-black stabbings, and warned politicians and police to stop ignoring the links between race and gang violence. Mr Phillips, the former head of the United Kingdom’s Equality and Human Rights Commission (ECHR), made the comments in an opinion piece in The Telegraph on Friday, following a string of stabbings in London and Birmingham. Referencing a report released on Thursday which revealed that some 27,000 under-19s in England identify themselves as being part of a gang, Mr Phillips noted that in terms of youth gang violence, “black boys are more than 20 times as likely to be involved in serious attacks compared with their white peers.”

Letter to The Editor - It might be electorally wiser for the Coalition to defend free speech

To The Australian         Milo Yiannopoulos is not under threat of being banned from entry here "because he just happens to champion the right side of politics" as Ian Kent claims (8/3). His trolling activities "to make as much noise as possible" are repugnant and his presence in our land would probably be a cause of irritating public disturbances. Yet do these factors really amount to justification for the entry ban? The suspicion arises, as with the recent entry ban on David Icke, that the Government is taking the easy way out to avoid negative publicity before the elections and that at the same time it is pandering to powerful sectional interests which continually seek to unfairly minimize adverse comment on their activities. It might be electorally wiser for the Coalition to defend free speech more robustly in future.

Letter to The Editor - The trading of insults and pejorative labelling is found right across the whole political spectrum

To The Age        The proposed entry ban on Milo Yiannopoulos ("No go, Milo: Right-winger banned", 7/3), like the ban on David Icke, raises concerns about the possible erosion of free speech that may be involved. The reported trolling activities of Yiannopoulos are repellent, but do they really suggest that he might, when here, "incite discord in the Australian community or in a segment of that community" to any significant extent? Moreover, the trading of insults and pejorative labelling is found right across the whole political spectrum; and most Australians are sensible enough to tolerate it as part of human nature. A common element in both these cases is the accusation that there has been anti-Semitism involved. This propaganda term is regularly used by some Jewish interests and their supporters to deflect adverse criticism of Jewish influence in politics, some of which may be justified and in the general interest.

Immigration: “A Threat to Existence” By Chris Knight

     Immigration is a threat to existence; that is something that needs to be written in the sky:
  https://www.breitbart.com/clips/2019/02/17/limbaugh-immigration-is-an-emergency-our-culture-at-risk-from-parade-of-illegal-people-who-are-uneducated/

“On this weekend’s broadcast of “Fox News Sunday,” nationally syndicated conservative radio host Rush Limbaugh said President Donald Trump was right to declare a national emergency on the U.S.-Mexico border to build a wall. Limbaugh, “We have an emergency. This is an invasion. The very existence and definition of American culture, American society, the rule of law. Why does nobody talk about the fact that millions and millions and millions of people are breaking the law coming here illegally and that the Democrat Party wants that to happen?” He added, “It is undeniable that we have a major immigration problem and a political party that needs a permanent underclass of voters that wants that parade of illegal people who are uneducated, don’t even speak the language, they want them here. It is a crisis.”

The Hamburger … Soon to be an Extinct Species By Chris Knight

     The classical Soviet-style communist was a meat eater, some would also say a metaphysical eater of human flesh, but let’s not go there. Unlike Stalin though, the new communist who has risen in America, but which has yet to emerge to the same degree of madness, wants to go after red meat, all in the name of a so-called “green planet”! What next you may ask? Think of a freedom, and then imagine it gone.
  https://www.rt.com/usa/452704-hamburgers-stalin-ocasio-gorka-cpac/

“Hamburgers, the iconic American fast-food staple, have become the latest battlefield in US culture and political wars, with conservatives accusing ‘Green New Deal’ Democrats of being secret Reds for going after red meat.
“They want to take your pickup truck, they want to rebuild your home, they want to take away your hamburgers,” former White House staffer Dr. Sebastian Gorka thundered on Thursday, to the applause of the Conservative Political Action Conference (CPAC) at National Harbor, Maryland. This is what Stalin dreamt about, but never achieved. “You are on the frontlines of the war against Communism coming back to America under the guise of democratic socialism,” Gorka added.

Diversity Working Really Well in Sweden By Richard Miller

     Who says that mass migration does not enliven a country and warm the cockles of everybody’s hearts?
  https://www.zerohedge.com/news/2019-03-01/our-drivers-have-been-attacked-ups-halts-deliveries-swedish-no-go-zone

“Though European leaders and their counterparts in the US (along with their allies in the mainstream press) have continued to deny their existence, migrant-dominated "no go" zones remain a persistent public safety threat to the Swedish public. And in the latest repudiation of the Swedish government's refusal to accept the term, and acknowledge the fact that - as Swedish police chiefs warned back in 2017 - these areas represent "parallel societies" where Swedish institutions aren't recognized, UPS has ceased delivery to Rosengard, a notorious neighborhood in Malmo, Sweden, after several of its drivers were assaulted and robbed. According to local media reports cited by RT, delivering to the neighborhood has become too dangerous for UPS, after the US carrier told the press that "our drivers have been attacked and therefore we have decided not to hand out packages at [the district]."

Russian Nuclear Targets By James Reed

     So, at long last the Russian nuclear targets have been revealed for America, and there are no real surprises in this years’ nuclear Oscars:
  https://www.reuters.com/article/us-usa-nuclear-russia/after-putins-warning-russian-tv-lists-nuclear-targets-in-u-s-idUSKCN1QE1DM

“Russian state television has listed U.S. military facilities that Moscow would target in the event of a nuclear strike, and said that a hypersonic missile Russia is developing would be able to hit them in less than five minutes.
The targets included the Pentagon and the presidential retreat in Camp David, Maryland. The report, unusual even by the sometimes-bellicose standards of Russian state TV, was broadcast on Sunday evening, days after President Vladimir Putin said Moscow was militarily ready for a “Cuban Missile”-style crisis if the United States wanted one.”

The Hypocrisy of Gun Controllers By John Steele

     This is why guns need to be banned, not only for ordinary people, but especially the police and the state. Illegals and criminals, of course, should be permitted to retain their weapons, maybe even given more weapons, perhaps nuclear bombs too. Simply watch this video and ask  how could one not be convinced of the irrefutable logic of gun-banning?

     Surely the politically correct thing to have done here is to not have investigated the illegal migrant in the first place, instead focussing upon race-hate thought crimes. But, then, being shot death is simply part of life in a vibrant city.

Beware of “Extremists” Fringe Dwellers, You Know, People Like You! By Peter Ewer

“Facebook enabled advertisers to target Australians who have expressed an interest in extremist ideologies including "fascism", raising concerns the social media platform could be used to stoke civil unrest and destabilise local politics. Ahead of a Federal Election expected to be contested heavily on border protection, Facebook's advertising tools could, as of last week, also be used to target Australians interested in "opposition to immigration" and "nationalism", the Sydney Morning Herald and The Age have confirmed.’
