Censorship Unlimited Inc; Shut it All Down! By Peter Ewer

     Yo, the censorship of everything the elites don’t like has now progressed to websites and people who are just reporting on news that the mainstream are not reporting on, so for some reason, it must be shut down, terminated:  https://www.rt.com/usa/441144-facebook-rt-america-correspondent/

“RT America’s Rachel Blevins has had her public account axed by Facebook amid the social media giant’s recent crackdown on alternative news sources. Blevins says she only posted her journalistic work and is baffled by the move. Rachel says she had to work hard for four years to amass a following of nearly 70,000 people. She has no clue as to what might have prompted Facebook censors to see red and banish her from the site in the 'inauthentic behavior' crackdown, as she only posted her own work, articles and video reports. The RT America correspondent said that Facebook listed a plethora of reasons as to why her account got the chop. Rachel says the social media giant said it was a “fake account”, was “misleading users” and was “violating Facebook’s spam policy”.

Who Needs Evidence for “Hate”? By Mrs Vera West

     In the UK, the legal system has dropped one component of the traditional law of evidence, for now no evidence at all is needed to make a complaint for a hate crime, apart, I suppose, for the accused being white:  https://www.breitbart.com/london/2017/01/10/no-evidence-needed-report-transphobic-hate-crime-new-cps-guidelines/

“The Crown Prosecution Service (CPS) has held a “public consultation” and issued “revised” guidelines on “hate crimes” and “transphobia”, which are likely to result in ever increasing numbers of people being dragged through court for speech crimes. As well as setting out policy on racism, homophobia, and “transphobia”, the new guidelines include the “first public policy statement on Crimes Against Disabled People” to stress the CPS “understand[s] the serious nature of these crimes”. The new guidelines reaffirm the fact that no evidence is needed to bring a criminal complaint against someone for a “hate crime”, as “reporting… is subjective and is based on the perception of the victim”. In order to treat a crime as a hate crime for the purposes of investigation, there is no need for evidence to prove the aggravating element”, the guidelines add. “Hate crimes” receive harsher sentences than other crimes, and “aggravating” factors are often vague, such as the definition of “transphobia”. Speaking to Breitbart London, London Assembly Member and UKIP Education Spokesman David Kurten explained the possible impact of these guidelines. “While judges may not actually find the accused guilty, more people may be dragged through the courts for months and years for their opinions and beliefs, and in the process lose their job, their house, their marriage and their kids, as well as being left destitute after fighting a lengthy court battle,” he said.’

The Way of the Machete By John Steele

     I saw the first reference on an American news site, which linked to a local article. I am glad not to be in the city, living out here in the Victorian scrub in my trusty tent and swag. Just imagine what it is going to be like when TSHTF, big time:https://www.breitbart.com/london/2018/10/09/short-sentences-for-african-refugees-who-hacked-mans-head-with-machetes/ https://www.dailymail.co.uk/news/article-6238751/Tough-new-judge-Sarah-Dawes-sends-machete-wielding-thugs-jail.html

“Two refugees from Somalia have received short sentences for splitting a man’s skull and mutilating his hand in a machete attack in Melbourne, Australia. Abdirizak Mohamed Scek, 25, and Said Abdirahman, 28, gave “no explanation” for their savage attack on Nathan Brett, who was left with “a fractured skull, bleeding on the brain, and his finger hanging by a thread”, according to the Daily Mail. The court heard Brett was set upon by a group of African men armed with machetes while walking through a North Melbourne park after a party, shortly after having discovered a friend with a machete wound nearby and calling an ambulance for him. The Australian fled from his attackers but was pursued all the way to the door of a friend’s house, where he was given shelter. Despite the ‘no more soft sentences’ headline in the Daily Mail report on the case — which suggested the migrants were given “more than ten years” by a “tough new female judge” — the prison terms handed down by the County Court of Victoria’s Judge Sarah Dawes were actually fairly short. Abdirahman was given five-and-a-half years, with the possibility of parole after serving three-and-a-half, and Scek was given four years and nine months, with the possibility of parole after serving two years and nine months.”

The Good Censor: Google Abandons Free Speech Tradition for $$$ By Peter West

     Truly amazing news; traditional liberal values of free speech are being abandoned by Big Tech, and instead, money is being worshipped:  https://www.breitbart.com/tech/2018/10/09/the-good-censor-leaked-briefing-says-google-must-move-away-from-american-tradition-of-free-speech-to-expand-globally-attract-advertiser-s/

“A leaked Google briefing titled “The Good Censor” advises tech companies to move away from the “American tradition” of free speech if they wish to attract advertising revenue and continue global expansion. The briefing, leaked exclusively to Breitbart News, was the product of extensive research on the part of Google. This included expert interviews with MIT Tech Review editor-in-chief Jason Pontin, Atlantic staff writer and tech critic Franklin Foer, and academic Kalev Leetaru. 35 cultural observers and 7 cultural leaders from seven countries on five continents were consulted to produce it. The 85-page briefing admits that Google and other tech platforms have fundamentally altered their policies in response to unwelcome political events around the world, including the 2016 election and the rise of Alternative für Deutschland in Germany. Responding to the leak, an official Google source said the document should be considered internal research, and not an official company position. Page 14 of the document acknowledges that a few Silicon Valley tech giants now “control the majority of our conversations,” but that these platforms – including Google – must now break their initial promise to users of free speech and content neutrality.”

The Next Move of the Lunatics By Charles Taylor

     One of the themes running through articles this week is the madness of the elites. Now that Justice Brett Kavanaugh is on the bench of the US Supreme Court, the Leftoids now move to take him off by impeaching him, the grounds being only they can hold positions of power, and deplorables must die. Given that, at the present time, any such impeachment will be tough going:  https://www.naturalnews.com/2018-10-10-desperate-tactics-democrats-cannot-impeach-kavanaugh.html   https://www.washingtonexaminer.com/news/alan-dershowitz-the-constitution-wont-permit-democrats-to-impeach-brett-kavanaugh

“Democrats seeking to impeach Supreme Court Justice Brett Kavanaugh will be hamstrung by the Constitution, according to Harvard Law School Professor Emeritus Alan Dershowitz. "The Constitution would not permit impeachment of a sitting justice for actions he took while a private citizen 35 years ago, nor would it permit using the laws of perjury, which are very tough," Dershowitz said Monday during an interview with Fox News.Rep. Jerrold Nadler, the New York Democrat poised to chair the House Judiciary Committee should his party win a majority after the 2018 midterm elections, has suggested the panel may investigate Kavanaugh under his leadership. Reps. Luis Gutierrez, D-Ill., and Ted Lieu, D-Calif., have already voiced their support for probing the newly installed justice.

Now Even Physics is Politically Correct! By Brian Simpson

     In a previous article on the state of universities, I think James Reed said that the discipline of physics has held out against the current political correctness mania. He was wrong:  https://www.naturalnews.com/2018-10-10-science-under-attack-by-libtards-physics-isnt-sexist.html

“A physics professor at the University of Pisa in Italy recently became the subject of an “ethics investigation” at his school following a lecture he gave about how modern leftist dogma that blames “sexism” for allegedly keeping women from succeeding in the sciences is absolute bunk. Alessandro Strumia boldly and unequivocally stated that “cultural Marxism” is responsible for pushing this ridiculous feminist propaganda, highlighting the fact that common leftist buzzwords like “microaggression,” “gaslighting,” and “mansplaining” are perpetuating the lie that men are somehow “mobilizing their masculinity” to keep women from achieving scientific success. Entitled, “High Energy Theory and Gender,” Strumia’s lecture, which took place at the European Organization for Nuclear Research (CERN) in Switzerland, was quickly criticized by leftists involved with Science, Technology, Engineering and Math, also known as STEM, for allegedly being “discriminatory” against women.

Will Our Enemies Burn in the Flames of Hell? (I Do Not Know, But it is Possible) By Peter West

     Consider:

“In a Twitter rant over the weekend, Google design lead Dave Hogue claimed Republicans will “descend into the flames” of hell, and described members of the GOP as “treasonous” and “evil” following the confirmation of Brett Kavanaugh to the Supreme Court. “You are finished, @GOP. You polished the final nail for your own coffins. F**K. YOU. ALL. TO. HELL,” posted Hogue. “I hope the last images burned into your slimy, evil, treasonous retinas are millions of women laughing and clapping and celebrating as your souls descend into the flames.” Hogue soon deleted the post and made a follow-up tweet condemning the Republican Party while also adding that he “should have been more eloquent and less condemning” in the previous post.”https://www.breitbart.com/tech/2018/10/08/google-design-lead-david-hogue-evil-republicans-will-descend-into-flames-of-hell/

It’s Reasoning Jim, But Not as We Know It By Chris Knight

     The title of this article is taken from the old 1960s early politically correct, multiracial sci fi Star Trek, with Mr Spock telling Captain Jim, that the crazy stuff they have just found is “life,” but not as we know it. That in itself is crazy, because how else can we conceptualise “life,” but in terms of what we know? It is simply a contradiction in terms. Spock’s hyper-rational irrationalism reminds me of Mr Smartie, all-meat-eater, Jordan Peterson, hero to young men with weak or no father figures. Here is a recent example of Peterson’s Spockism, that Supreme Court judge Brett Kavanaugh should immediately resign:  https://www.breitbart.com/tech/2018/10/10/jordan-peterson-attempts-to-explain-his-call-for-kavanaugh-to-step-down/  https://jordanbpeterson.com/political-correctness/notes-on-my-kavanaugh-tweet/

“I asked myself a question, after reading these posts: “Is there an alternative to confirming or not confirming Kavanaugh?” When a choice appears starkly binary, a third path appears impossible, by definition — but might possibly still be worth seeking. I tried to place myself in Kavanaugh’s position, while generating a potential answer (and think that I can do so with some justification, having been publicly identified as reprehensible by many people—prominent journalists, activists, and academics among them). I thought, “He can’t withdraw, prior to the nomination, because his reputation has been savaged so badly that withdrawal would not only mean loss of the Supreme Court nomination, but demolition of his entire career and future life.” So the only way for Kavanaugh was forward, through the FBI investigation, on to the nomination hearing, and the hope that he would be… what? Cleared? Not cleared, because it is too late for that, even given the favorable or at least not damning FBI report.

Multicult Mass immigration Means No Diversity … but That is Their Plan! By James Reed

     “Queen” Ann Coulter says it better than anyone does:   https://www.breitbart.com/big-government/2018/10/08/watch-ann-coulter-constant-immigration-will-lead-to-no-culture-across-the-globe/

“New York Times best-selling author and populist conservative columnist Ann Coulter says “constant immigration” to the United States and other countries will lead to “no difference” between countries and “no culture” around the world. During an interview on the Swedish television show Skavlan, Coulter said mass immigration to the U.S. makes the world less diverse, as countries begin to lose their culture and heritage. “I feel like I’m the only one who really wants diversity,” Coulter said. “If all we’re going to have is this constant churning and constant immigration, we’re all going to be … we’re all going to look alike, there will be no difference, there will be no culture.”

Don’t Grieve about the Grievance Studies Affair By James Reed

     This is a fantastic paper that brings together perhaps the last sane voices in the academy to talk about the “Grievance Studies Affair,” where a group of academics wrote politically correct absurd papers, submitted them to Leftist journals and got many of them accepted, and published. There are some juicy quotes made by the largely philosophical critics about how postmodernism, the name given to the core destructive philosophy behind modern Leftism, has moved to dominate university culture, and even is making a move into the STEM areas of science. I think that disciplines like biology and medicine have been taken over decades ago, and it is only fields like mathematics, physics and chemistry, have yet to fall:  https://quillette.com/2018/10/01/the-grievance-studies-scandal-five-academics-respond/

     The philosopher, Jonathan Anomaly, a good name for a philosopher, says in his piece, “The Grievance University”:

Blood for Satan? What?! By Peter West

     I had to read the title of the article numerous times, then ponder the question of whether it was false news, but finally decided, that given the world is now insane, of course, it must be true, how could it not be?  https://www.vice.com/en_au/article/9kvkj3/australias-satanists-are-asking-for-blood-donations

“The Satanists of Australia are gathering blood. Not to drink, or bathe in, but because they believe that offering blood aligns with the first of the Seven Tenets of The Satanic Temple: that “One should strive to act with compassion and empathy towards all creatures in accordance with reason.” By the Red Cross’ estimations, they’ve saved 15 lives this month alone. The Blood for Satan donation drive is the country’s first Satanic charity event. In association with The Red Cross, Satanic Australia—the “nontheistic religious” group behind the plasma gathering—are encouraging members of the public to roll up their sleeves, cop a jab to the arm and donate in the name of the Devil. To be clear, these aren't the robe-wearing, witchcraft-practicing Satanists you might be used to. “Satanists care for our fellow humans,” a spokesperson for Satanic Australia told VICE via Facebook.

Your Children Will be Transgender, or Else! By Mrs Vera West

     If you do not let your son put on makeup and a dress, then watch out, because Big Sister is going to swat you:  https://www.telegraph.co.uk/education/2018/10/04/parents-wont-let-son-wear-skirt-may-have-referred-social-services/

“Parents who refuse to let their son wear a skirt to school may need to be referred to social services, a council’s guidance has advised schools. Mothers and fathers who dismiss a “gender questioning” child’s requests to change their name could also be a trigger for concern, according to Brighton and Hove City Council’s “Trans Inclusion Schools Toolkit”. It comes after warnings that schools are "sowing confusion" in children's minds by over-promoting transgender issues, and that children are being encouraged to “unlearn” the difference between boys and girls. The guidance advises teachers on how to handle a number of different scenarios, including if parents say: “I refuse to allow my son to change his name or wear skirts”. Schools are advised that some parents may “struggle” to accept their child’s gender identity and it may be a long time before they accept the change. “If a setting has a significant concern about the child’s wellbeing and or safety in relation to how the parents or carers are managing the exploration of the child’s gender identity it may be necessary and advisable to follow safeguarding procedures,” schools are told.”

Young Folk, You Will Not Have a Pension (or Even a Job) By Peter Ewer

     I have long believed that the social welfare system would eventually be eliminated, dying the death of a thousand cuts. This has slowly happened with the dole and other benefits. Now the mangy cat is out of the bag on the end of pensions:  https://www.couriermail.com.au/news/queensland/federal-treasurer-warns-welfare-not-guaranteed-for-future-generations/news-story/c667fa3140cd3cfa8c4f47a2ac981cc0

“There is no guarantee the pension will be available for future generations, federal Treasurer Scott Morrison warned yesterday. Mr Morrison said Australia could not take for granted its generous safety net or assume it would always be there. At a post-Budget breakfast in Brisbane, he said Australia needed to keep growing the economy and had to be globally competitive. “We owe to future generations (to pay for) health, schools, pensions, the Pharmaceutical Benefits Scheme,” he said. ‘‘There are no guarantees about that.” Mr Morrison said the Federal Government was committed to ensuring pensions and essential services would be there in the future, through good financial management. Pushing the need for corporate tax cuts for the big end of town, he warned that the US, UK and France could soon all be more competitive than Australia.”

Swiftly Taylored Political Correctness from the Singing Canary By Charles Taylor

     The US power elites are rolling out their secret weapons, with ultra-skinny pop music icon Taylor Swift coming out in favour of the Democrats, and continuing the politically correct narrative that the rest of the chatterers have begun.   https://www.breitbart.com/big-hollywood/2018/10/07/taylor-swift-marsha-blackburn-tennessee-senate-race/   https://www.breitbart.com/big-government/2018/10/08/donald-trump-shuns-taylor-swift-after-marsha-blackburn-smear/   https://www.breitbart.com/big-hollywood/2018/10/08/taylor-swift-fans-furious-over-democrat-endorsement-be-quiet-and-sing/    https://www.breitbart.com/big-hollywood/2018/10/08/taylor-swift-endorses-democrat-who-supports-brett-kavanaugh/

Letter to The Editor - The “greatest social justice issue in our country” is not Aboriginal disadvantage but the growth of poverty generally

To The Australian        Robert Tickner is merely the latest advocate of "indigenous" constitutional recognition to repeat a set of unconvincing assertions ("Indigenous voice to Parliament 'can't fail'", 10/10). Claims that a constitutionally entrenched "voice" to Parliament would not amount to a "third chamber" miss the point that it would inevitably place undue pressure on politicians and easily be given greater powers in the future. The phrase "closing the gap" also needs to be challenged. What if that gap cannot be closed in the foreseeable future for a number of reasons that have nothing to do with constitutional recognition? Is the phrase itself a wooden horse? As for the need to hear "the aspirations of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people", we hear these already every day through the mass media. The “greatest social justice issue in our country” is not Aboriginal disadvantage but the growth of poverty generally with increased homelessness.  Nigel Jackson, Belgrave, Vic

Letter to The Editor - Political zealots can also be anti-social pests

To The Age        Well done, Carol Oliver! Yes, "the money-makers' ignorance of any respect for our icons" (10/10) is deplorable. The burgeoning ugliness of inappropriately restricted advertising must be opposed. But political zealots can also be anti-social pests. I only wish that readers' indignation against the defacing of the Sydney Opera House had been matched earlier by a similar outcry against the use of St. Paul's Cathedral here to blazon forth a partisan message on the refugee controversy.  Nigel Jackson, Belgrave, Vic

Now They Attack Freedom of Association By Ian Wilson LL.B

     First, they went after freedom of speech, and took that down. Now, as not enough good men fought, the Deep State won and  moves on and attacks freedom of association:  https://www.hrlc.org.au/news/2018/9/6/dangerous-anti-association-laws-pass-lower-house

“The Andrews Government has pushed divisive anti-association laws through the lower house of Parliament today. The laws will give police excessive powers to issue ‘anti-association notices’, telling people – including children as young as 14 – who they can and can’t be friends with or spend time with. Human rights advocates, lawyers and community workers all say that these laws are an attack on our democratic rights and neither politicians nor police officers should have a role in deciding who people can and can’t be friends with. Ruth Barson, a director of legal advocacy at the Human Rights Law Centre, said that the laws are senseless, dangerous and a sign that Premier Andrews is pandering to Matthew Guy’s toxic law and order agenda.

Australia, Basically Ruled by China By James Reed

     I did not know about this until alerted by an email, but apparently Tasmania, which is fast becoming a part of China, is allowing China to use Hobart as a port for their icebreaker. Sure, give them the state and Australia’s share of Antarctica too (the Antarctic treaty comes up for renegotiation in 2040), since our hands are too soft and flabby to do anything much expect stuff our faces with cream puffs, while mouthing sweet nothings about diversity and Asianisation:  http://www.abc.net.au/news/2018-09-15/chinese-icebreaker-to-visit-hobart-twice-over-summer/10249652

     Wow, only two port stops and $2.5 million dollars will be injected into the Tassy economy; talk about a cargo cult. The premier is falling over himself. Never mind that an American think tank, who think, unlike Australia’s political leaders, has warned that China is a threat to Australia’s Antarctic territory:  http://www.abc.net.au/radio/programs/worldtoday/australias-antarctic-territory-under-threat-from-china/9018868

The Rule of the Mob By Chris Knight

     Since the appointment of Brett Kavanaugh to the US Supreme Court, the US chattering class, especially Hollywood clowns, who somehow think that their political opinions matter, have gone even more crazy than usual, lamenting that the rule of law is dead. Yes, all that from a group of degenerates who subjected the judge’s 10 year old daughter to a political attack as well. Probably these ferals would get physical if they could:  https://www.westernjournal.com/ct/leftists-target-kavanaughs-10-year-old-daughter-disturbing-attack/    https://www.breitbart.com/big-hollywood/2018/10/06/hollywood-unhinged-after-brett-kavanuagh-confirmation-fck-kavanaugh-fck-trump-electoral-rampage-is-underway/

     None of this has been lost on President Trump, who in a rally in Kansas, compared the Democrats to an angry mob, and arsonists eager to burn it all down:   https://www.breitbart.com/big-government/2018/10/07/donald-trump-in-kansas-democrats-an-angry-mob-you-dont-hand-matches-to-an-arsonist/    https://www.zerohedge.com/news/2018-10-07/trump-angry-mob-radical-democrats-has-become-too-extreme-and-too-dangerous-govern

Goodbye UN Human Rights Council By Chris Knight

     Good things are happening in America, shining a light on where we, in Australia, need to go, such as getting out of the UN. A first good step is to withdraw from the globalist, anti-Western, Human Rights Council:  https://www.npr.org/2018/06/19/621435225/u-s-announces-its-withdrawal-from-u-n-s-human-rights-council?utm_campaign=storyshare&utm_source=facebook.com&utm_medium=social

“After more than a year of complaints and warnings — some subtle and others a little less so — the Trump administration has announced that the United States is withdrawing from the United Nations Human Rights Council. Secretary of State Mike Pompeo and Ambassador to the U.N. Nikki Haley announced the decision in a joint statement Tuesday. "I want to make it crystal clear that this step is not a retreat from human rights commitments," Haley told the media. "On the contrary, we take this step because our commitment does not allow us to remain a part of a hypocritical and self-serving organization that makes a mockery of human rights." The move comes as little surprise from an administration that frequently has lambasted the 47-member body for a gamut of perceived failures — particularly the dubious rights records of many of its member countries.”
