Consent Videos: A Deconstruction By Ian Wilson LL.B

     Non-Christian types, now the majority, who like to have extra-marital sex, have big problems today, due to the feminist rape culture, #MeTooism, you name it. One response of the plebs is getting a recorded account of consent:

Ukraine-Russia War Again By James Reed

     Here we go again. At least this time, as I write this, I am only 53 minutes behind the mainstream press in reporting. I am disappointed that Vlad the Lad Putin did not ring me up first to ask advice about the wisdom of opening fire on the Ukrainian vessels in the Black Sea, but, no doubt he has his reasons:
  https://www.usnews.com/news/world/articles/2018-11-25/ukrainian-navy-tugboat-rammed-by-russian-ship-near-crimea

“Russia's coast guard opened fire on and seized three of Ukraine's vessels Sunday, wounding two crew members, after a tense standoff in the Black Sea near the Crimean Peninsula, the Ukrainian navy said. Russia blamed Ukraine for provoking the incident, which sharply escalated tensions that have been growing between the two countries since Moscow annexed Crimea from Ukraine in 2014, and it has worked steadily to bolster its zone of control around the peninsula. Earlier in the day, Russia and Ukraine traded accusations over a separate incident involving the same vessels, prompting Moscow to block passage through the narrow Kerch Strait, which separates the peninsula from the Russian mainland. The Ukrainian navy said two of its gunboats were struck and Russian crews boarded and seized them and an accompanying tugboat. Russia's Federal Security Service, known as the FSB and which oversees the coast guard, said there was "irrefutable evidence that Kiev prepared and orchestrated provocations ... in the Black Sea. These materials will soon be made public."

Amy Wax Waxes it to “Em By James Reed

     When I first saw this article I thought it was the typical academic wanting to ban more things. But, this story has a wicked twist, as Professor Amy Waxx wants to ban the banners, in a delightful way:
  https://www.dailysignal.com/2018/11/21/professor-thinks-banning-these-words-would-fix-free-speech-on-college-campuses/

“Here are her ideas, implemented as guidelines in her seminars and upper-level classes, lightly edited for clarity: No one can be heard to say, ‘I’m offended.’ They all have permission to be offended. But they just can’t express it. No one is allowed to accuse anyone else, in the classroom or out, dead or alive, of being racist, sexist, xenophobic, white supremist, or any other derisive, identity-based label. No slurs or name-calling. These don’t enlighten, educate, or edify. They add nothing. Give us an argument. Tell us why the other person is wrong. No one can complain to administrators—those officious thought police—about anything said in class. Finally, both the government and private donors need to rethink the lavish financial support for higher education, and especially for elite and selective institutions, which serve only a teeny-tiny portion of our population and which in many ways, I’m afraid, have become an anti-Western and anti-American liability. How can we get the rich to see that supporting elite universities today might not be the wisest and more fruitful uses of their hard-earned money? What we need is a list of alternative causes and alternative institutions and goals for their money that help ordinary, average, unspecial people who have been unduly neglected by our elites and our increasingly walled off from them.”

Trump in Chains By Chris Knight

     Both Charles Taylor and I, covering the American scene, have spoken metaphorically about Trump ending up in chains. Now the chattering class are openly saying it:
  https://www.breitbart.com/entertainment/2018/11/27/ron-perlman-trump-will-be-in-chains-for-high-crime-of-treason/

“Actor Ron Perlman warned that President Donald Trump will soon be “in chains” for committing the “high crime of treason.”

Can China Save Civilisation? By James Reed

     Although nationalist types like us are concerned about Chinese imperialism, really the fault lies with our local traitors and not the Chinese. I do not have any hatred for China, but rather shame and disgust about the corruption and weakness of “our” politicians. The same with immigration. Hating migrants is insane; it is the local politicians and Deep State machinery that should be despised. As Cicero famously said (well, not exactly from Cicero himself, but from an interpretation made by Taylor Caldwell in his book, A Pillar of Iron (1965)): “A nation can survive its fools, and even the ambitious. But it cannot survive treason from within. An enemy at the gates is less formidable, for he is known and carries his banner openly. But, the traitor moves amongst those within the gate freely, his sly whispers rustling through all the alleys, heard in the very halls of government itself. For the traitor appears not a traitor; he speaks in accents familiar to his victims, and he wears their face and their arguments, he appeals to the baseness that lies deep in the hearts of all men. He rots the soul of a nation, he works secretly and unknown in the night to undermine the pillars of the city, he infects the body politic so that it can no longer resist. A murderer is less to fear.” I am sure that Cicero would have agreed, even if he did not say it. Call it the pseudo-cicero quote.

     If the roles were reversed and I was in the position of the Chinese or the migrants, I would do exactly the same. It is just human nature, contrary to the lies of liberalism. So, that is the clear difference between us and some other groups, for we reject scapegoating the “Other” and see the real problem with our own Judases, the elites who rule us, and sell us off. That said, there is much to be said about the greatness of China, a greatness  we had but have lost because of cultural Marxism and degenerate Leftism. China seems to have survived and thrived despite the Marxist virus, and not degenerated to the level of politically correct diversity-decline. Feminism and the destruction of manhood is being held at bay, although the decadent forces from the West are at work to destroy what remains of  noble Chinese manhood:

Utterly Desperate South American Must be Given Jobs and Homes in Hollywood! By Charles Taylor

     The poor refugees that have approached our US border, only looking to enrich drab American culture, have had to resort to throwing rocks in response to the US government’s nervous gas attacks. What is this, Syria, Russia?
  https://www.cbsnews.com/news/commentary-caravan-confirms-what-trump-has-been-saying-for-weeks/

“On Sunday, hundreds of would-be illegal immigrants gathered at the U.S. border to make a massive contribution to the Trump 2020 re-election campaign. They chanted that they weren't bound by the idea of borders and laws ("We are not criminals! We are international workers!").  They hurled rocks at U.S. Border Patrol agents. They rushed the border itself, cutting holes in fencing and climbing walls. They forced authorities to use tear gas to protect themselves and turn back the mob. The San Ysidro Port of Entry was forced to close for more than five hours. In other words, they confirmed what President Trump has been saying for weeks about the caravan and what it represents. And, like clockwork, the president's progressive opponents have been answering his extreme rhetoric with their own.

Letter to The Editor - Australians will at such a referendum vote away their national stability and security

To The Australian        The newly released parliamentary report on the proposal for an indigenous "Voice to Parliament" apparently does not contain any convincing justification for entrenching such a Voice in the constitution ("Define powers and role of indigenous voice: Dodson", 30/11). What is the value of arguing whether the design of such a Voice should or should not come before a referendum is put, when there is no evidence that Australians will at such a referendum vote away their national stability and security in favour of an inequitable attribution of constitutional privilege to a tiny minority of citizens whose right to special treatment has never been effectively established?

The Fate of Trump and His Family: Total Annihilation By Chris Knight

     Liberal democracy, as it was known, ended in the fires of 1968, and the New Class have rolled in an era of anarcho-tyranny unlimited, iron-fisted repression of Western European Whites, with anarchy with respect to migrant-based crime against them. Websites such as Pam Geller show this with daily reports not covered in the mainstream press. Part of this anarcho-tyranny involves the Deep State hypocrisy of allowing Hillary Clinton to walk scot-free from her email mischief, but Trump’s daughter has been targeted for what the elites think is some sort of transgression. Thus, Trump’s family is now in the cross-hairs, metaphorically speaking:
  https://www.nytimes.com/2018/11/25/us/politics/trump-family-congress-investigations.html

“When two Republican members of Congress began formally questioning last week Ivanka Trump’s use of private email for government business, it was seen by people close to the White House as a sign of things to come for the president’s family. One of the Republicans was Senator Ron Johnson of Wisconsin, the chairman of the Senate Homeland Security and Governmental Affairs Committee, which has conducted little oversight of the Trump White House until now. The other was Representative Trey Gowdy of South Carolina, the chairman of the House Oversight Committee, who previously led a two-year investigation into events surrounding the attack on American diplomatic outposts in Benghazi, Libya, focusing relentlessly on the role of Hillary Clinton. His most prominent investigation as chairman has scrutinized alleged anti-Trump political bias within the F.B.I. during its inquiries related to the 2016 presidential campaign. “That you now have Republicans investigating members of the first family is an indication of the perils ahead” for the Trumps, said Tom Davis, the former House Republican from Virginia who was the chairman of the Oversight Committee from 2003 through 2006.”

Letter to The Editor - The best road to a strongly united nation

To The Age        That some "Coalition and Labor MPs have backed an Indigenous 'Voice to Parliament'" ("Indigenous Voice wins MP backing", 30/11) does not mean that such a move, involving constitutional entrenchment, is in Australia's best interests or will ever win support in a referendum. Constitutionally, all Australians, no matter what their ethnic background, should be regarded as being on the same footing. That is the best road to a strongly united nation that will enjoy continued stability and security. The welfare of disadvantaged Australians, indigenous and non-indigenous, can be attended to sensibly and efficiently without any dangerous tampering with the constitution.

Objectum Sexual: Peak Weirdness By Mrs Vera West

     I had been awaiting this one, and now it is here. People wanting to marry objects such as old shoes, doggy doo and wheelie bin refuse:
  https://www.breitbart.com/tech/2018/11/27/objectum-sexual-woman-gets-a-tattoo-of-her-fiance-a-chandelier/

“A British woman who identifies as “objectum sexual,” or attracted to inanimate objects, recently got a tattoo of her future spouse — a chandelier named “Lumiere.” Breitbart News reported last year about a British woman who was engaged to a chandelier. Now, the Mirror reports that Amanda Liberty of Leeds, England, has a tattoo of her spouse-to-be, a chandelier she calls “Lumiere.” “I couldn’t stop thinking about her and how beautiful she was — she has such a beautiful shape, and I could feel really amazing energy coming from her,” Liberty said last year. “Although I knew it would be tricky to get her home, I knew I needed to find a way to make her mine.”

Letter to The Editor - European Court of Justice would still have a role and Britain

To The Australian        Jacquelin Magnay explores at length the possibility (she admits that it is not a certainty) that a no-deal Brexit would have grim results for many Britons ("Merkel works to shore up May deal", 24-25/11), but ignores the reality that the loss of Brexit and further absorption into the EU would have far grimmer results for the UK in the medium and long term. The situation is summed up in her admission that Mrs May's pseudo-Brexit deal means that "the European Court of Justice would still have a role and Britain would not be completely independent." For the British to reassert the importance of intellectual freedom as a fundamental of a democratic order, they must throw off the yoke of incipient tyranny masquerading as political correctness for which the EU soviet-like justice system is now notorious. What appears to be most important at this critical stage is for the Leave majority to find the right person to lead the nation "through the Red Sea".

Openly Corrupt By Chris Knight

     The thing that I don’t miss about America is the open corruption, unlike here in Oz, where there is a little attempt to cover things up. In the following, all Australian readers need to know is that Schumer is a Senator, and a politically correct one at that:

“What does it take to friend a U.S. senator? If you’re Facebook, all you need is about $50,000 in donations – and a cushy job for the politician’s daughter. Facebook employees, including some at the top of its corporate pyramid, have helped fill Schumer’s campaign coffers – and he’s returned the favor by carrying water for the social media giant in Congress, according to a recent report. And Alison Schumer, the senator’s youngest of two daughters, works as a Facebook product marketing manager – which pays an average of $160,000, according to Glassdoor.com. “It sure looks hinky,” political strategist Susan Del Percio told The Post. “This is an industry that’s been trying for years to fend off heavy government regulation by actively cultivating relationships with senators and House members.”

The Menace of Our Immigration Policy: Andrew Bolt By James Reed

     Andrew Bolt has been in full powered action in critiquing Australia’s immigration policy, which he sees as a threat to public safety.

“Take the news of this past fortnight, which has derailed Labor’s re-election campaign and exposed our immigration program as a menace. Worst, a Muslim terrorist killed a man in Bourke St. The killer, Hassan Khalif Shire Ali, came from Somalia. Three Muslims were arrested for an alleged terrorist plot. Their families came from Turkey. Three more Muslims were convicted of planning a mass terrorist attack in Federation Square. Their families came from Lebanon, yet another Muslim country. But this month, Victorians also heard of yet more pack-attacks by people whose families came here from Africa, most as refugees from Sudan. Those pack-attacks included the bashing of a St Kilda chef and a fast-food worker; a riot at Koo Wee Rup; violent robberies in Dandenong, Pakenham and Springvale; and a mass brawl with police in St Kilda. Apologists lie when they say this level of ethnic violence is no different from that of other migrant groups which have since settled in. In fact, Sudanese Australians are an astonishing 57 times more likely than other Victorians to commit an aggravated burglary, says the Victorian Crime Statistics Agency, and about half the Australians jailed for terrorism are from families from just one country: Lebanon. I’ve argued before that our immigration and refugee programs have gone from great to a menace, not least because five Australians have died in terrorist attacks by Muslim refugees. Add the congestion, the growth of ethnic ghettos and the fact that nearly 1 million Australians have no or little English, and it’s clear we have bitten off much more than we can chew.”

Letter to The Editor - We monarchists insist that a sacred monarchy is always superior

To The Age        Amanda Vanstone reasonably argues ("Shorten's republic road map will only set us back", 26/11) that Australians should seek to find a new unity and also a head of state that is completely our own. She uses these proposals to justify the republican cause; but in themselves they do not do that. Nowhere in her article is there any attempt to show that a republic would be better for us than a monarchy. Phrases like "a nation that has come of age" are mere rhetoric. We monarchists insist that a sacred monarchy is always superior in principle to any kind of republic; it has an accordance with truth, a dignity and an inspirational power that Australians will be wise to retain in one form or another.

American Whites are Not the Only Ones Dying Out, Apparently By Charles Taylor

     Silly me, thinking that it was just the White race hurtling towards demographic oblivion. Apparently, everybody in America is doomed, or depending on how you look at it, about to start breeding again (maybe):
  https://dailykenn.blogspot.com/2018/07/think-whites-are-dying-out-due-to-low.html

“According to New York Post native-born blacks and Hispanics are also "dying out. The trend varies among demographic groups. Native-born Hispanics and blacks used to have birth rates above the replacement rate (2.1 births per woman). Now they’re below replacement, almost as low that of as native-born whites and Asians, which are down only a bit. The immigrant birth rate remains above replacement level among blacks, but only barely above among Hispanics, and below among whites and Asians. No wonder the far left — once an advocate for population control — is clamoring to fill Western nations with non-white insurgents posing as refugees and asylum seekers.”

Law Out of Control By Charles Taylor

     This story illustrates a point which I have been making for years in America, perhaps unpalatable to rosy cheeked, glazed eyed conservatives, that the globalist cultural Marxist left has taken over the ruling institutions of Western society, including law. Thus a judge that we have not heard of, over-rules an executive order of the president of the United States, Donald Trump, which was to block the illegal migrant invaders from seeking asylum:
  https://www.reuters.com/article/us-usa-immigration-court/us-judge-blocks-trump-asylum-restrictions-idUSKCN1NO1E6

     But, it gets worse, as a Federal judge has ruled that laws against female genital mutilation are unconstitutional!!! The Founding Fathers would be speechless; I am almost speechless:

Told You So: North Korea Keeps its Nukes By James Reed

     Aaaaah … I thought it was too good to be true, and that we would escape nuclear annihilation too easily. North Korea is going to keep its nukes, and who says then the little guy who is dictator will not eat some rich food and suddenly get the urge to splurge:
  http://www.shtfplan.com/headline-news/ww3-alert-north-korea-will-be-keeping-their-nukes-despite-promises-to-denuclearize_11192018

“North Korea’s dictator, Kim Jong-Un, has decided to keep the nation’s nuclear weapons, despite promises to the Trump administration that he would begin denuclearization. It appears that a nuclear war threat is still lingering and could be the topic of discussion when president Donald Trump meets Kim early next year. According to The Daily Star UK, sources inside the Communist state have reportedly revealed its leader Kim Jong-un has no plans to surrender his nuclear weapons despite talks of denuclearization with Trump. Jiro Ishimaru of Asia Press International, revealed insiders have said Kim has been assuring his citizens he won’t allow North Korea to be vulnerable. “Even after Kim met with [U.S. President Donald] Trump, progress on a peace treaty has been slow,” said Jiro. “So Kim must feel the need to assure people domestically that he has no intention to let go of nuclear weapons.” Talks between the US and North Korea have not gone as smoothly as expected since Trump and Kim had their historic and landmark meeting in Singapore in July. Although the two leaders have agreed to a second summit in the US early next year, the schedule and agenda have yet to be set in stone. A high-level meeting to iron out details that was scheduled to have taken place on November 8 was canceled the day before without explanation. But it’s a safe bet that the US will be adding North Korea’s nukes to the discussion.

The Persecution of Christians: New/Old Sport By Michael Ferguson

     It is not a good time to be a Christian if one wants to be persecution free, for outside of the West, which is getting nastier by the day, half a billion Christians across the world are persecuted:
  https://www.breitbart.com/national-security/2018/11/24/report-half-billion-christians-facing-global-persecution/

“More than 60 percent of the world’s population of more than 7.5 billion reside in countries where the right to religious freedom is obstructed or denied. An estimated 505 million Christians face persecution for following their faith, a Catholic NGO Aid to the Church in Need (ACN) report indicated this week. “For simply belonging to the wrong religion, countless numbers of people have been killed; many others have disappeared and still more have been imprisoned indefinitely,” John Pontifex, the report’s editor-in-chief, said. On Thursday, a press release on the 14th edition of ACN’s Religious Freedom in the World Report, which this year covers all religions in 196 countries over a two-year period up to and including June 2018, declared:

Beware, the Sentinelese! By Brian Simpson

     Did you hear about the guy who wanted to convert one of the last “primitive’ tribe on earth, but got killed by arrows? Obviously he had a good heart, but had not thought it through first. No, this was not in the Amazon jungle, but on an island off India, and the tribe is known as the Sentinelese, who live in the North Sentinel Island, India's remote cluster of Andaman and Nicobar. The Indian government forbids outsiders from going to the island. These people pretty much hate outsiders, and have thrown spears and fired arrows at “invaders.”  
  https://www.bbc.com/news/world-asia-india-46286215
  https://www.ndtv.com/india-news/what-we-know-about-sentinelese-hostile-tribe-that-killed-an-american-1951270

1.    “They live on an island 50 km west of Port Blair. Their numbers are believed to be less than 150 and as low as 40.
2.    It is said they have made little to no advancement in the over 60,000 years and still live very primitive lives, surviving mainly on fish and coconuts.
3.    They are very vulnerable to germs since they have not had contact with the outside world. Even a common flu virus carried by a visitor could wipe out the entire tribe.
4.    Since the 1960s, there have been a handful of efforts to reach out to the tribe but all have largely failed. They have repeatedly, aggressively made it clear that they want to be isolated.
5.    The only man believed to have succeeded in establishing friendly contact with the tribe was an Indian anthropologist Triloknath Pandit in 1991.
6.    In the 1981, a cargo ship MV Primrose grounded on the reef surrounding North Sentinel Island. The crew were rescued after a week by an Indian helicopter. The wreckage of the ship is still visible in satellite images.
7.    In 2006, the tribe killed two fishermen who strayed on to the island. They even rejected outside help after the Indian Ocean tsunami in 2004, throwing spears and arrows at a rescue helicopter that flew above.
8.    The Indian government has had strict laws that ensure that they are isolated. These laws prohibited anyone from making any unauthorised contact with these isolated aboriginals.
9.    But in a major step earlier this year, the Indian government excluded this island and 28 others in the Union Territory from the Restricted Area Permit or RAP regime till December 31, 2022, news agency Press Trust of India reported. The lifting of RAP means foreigners can go to the island without permission from the government, PTI reported.”

Victory! Down Goes The UN Migration Pact! By James Reed

     One good thing is that the UN Pact on Migration looks like it is coming unstuck, and at least is over for us for the time, but no doubt the elites will try it again under a new name, a bit down the track, when they think no-one is watching.
  https://www.breitbart.com/europe/2018/11/22/world-follows-trumps-lead-nations-abandon-legal-framework-building-un-migration-pact/

“More nations are joining the exodus from the United Nations’ (UN) controversial compact on mass migration, with legal experts now standing up to raise concerns about the drafting of the document and what legal implications signing it might have for countries party to the pact. President Donald Trump was the first to pull out of the UN pact on migration in December 2017, a move which prompted howls of disapproval from both the mainstream media and globalist leaders. Yet several nations from all over the world have outright withdrawn from the compact since initially ratifying it in July, or have signalled their intent to do so, as states gain confidence in opposing fashionable but dangerous deals that are not in their own interests. In comments that cut across the grain of the usual business and practice of the United Nations, President Trump said at the body’s New York headquarters in September: “Migration should not be governed by an international body unaccountable to our own citizens. “Ultimately, the only long-term solution to the migration crisis is to help people build more hopeful futures in their home countries. Make their countries great again.”
