New Zealand Hates Free Speech Too By Michael Ferguson

     We do not get a lot of new New Zealand news items to report about here, but those that do come across our desk (computer screen) are usually bad, sad, or mad. Take this little drop of anarcho-tyrannical oppression:

“Right-wing activist Lauren Southern has fallen victim to yet another last-minute venue cancellation, after the owner of a New Zealand building recieved complaints about Southern and co-speaker Stefan Molyneux’s platform. The self-described “alt-media” pair was swinging by Auckland on the final stop in their antipodean tour, fresh off the back of visiting Australia, where Southern begged God not to “nuke Melbourne” for it's supposed Biblical sins. Dogged by controversy, it appears that strife followed them across the Tasman with their only New Zealand venue canceling at the last minute. Due to a raft of complaints, owner of Auckland’s Powerstation venue Gabrielle Mullins canceled the event, citing a disagreement with the speakers’ message. “As soon as we found out [what their message was], we weren’t comfortable at all because it goes against quite a lot of things that we say,” the owner told the NZ Herald. “They can say whatever they want but personally I don’t want it in my venue.” Southern took to Twitter, lampooning yet another cancelation by quoting the Lord of the Rings, a film New Zealand is famous for. “One does not simply walk into a venue in New Zealand,” she wrote to her 387,000 followers.

The Pope and the Death Penalty By Peter West

     This is a controversial one, as the question of the death penalty for Christians, has been long debated, so we can expect that we may respond to this story in different ways. The Pope has revised the Catechism, to now condemn the death penalty:

“Building on the development of Catholic Church teaching against capital punishment, Pope Francis has ordered a revision of the Catechism of the Catholic Church to assert "the death penalty is inadmissible because it is an attack on the inviolability and dignity of the person" and to commit the church to working toward its abolition worldwide. The catechism's paragraph on capital punishment, 2267, already had been updated by St. John Paul II in 1997 to strengthen its skepticism about the need to use the death penalty in the modern world and, particularly, to affirm the importance of protecting all human life. Announcing the change Aug. 2, Cardinal Luis Ladaria, prefect of the Congregation for the Doctrine of the Faith, said, "The new text, following in the footsteps of the teaching of John Paul II in 'Evangelium Vitae,' affirms that ending the life of a criminal as punishment for a crime is inadmissible because it attacks the dignity of the person, a dignity that is not lost even after having committed the most serious crimes."

Why Is There This Press Bias On A Matter Of National Importance? By Nigel Jackson

     ‘The Age’ newspaper in Melbourne seems unwilling to publish any submission (letter or opinion piece) opposed to ‘indigenous’ constitutional recognition and/or the signing of a treaty. Is it afraid that the case against such change is too persuasive?

     On 14th July 2018 The Age published an opinion piece by well-known and very successful author Stephanie Dowrick entitled ‘Scandal at our nation’s heart’. It concerned alleged mistreatment of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islanders by contemporary Australia. I at once submitted the letter below to the Letters Editor.

The UK and Rising Sharia Law By Mrs Vera West

     This has created a precedent: a UK court recognising sharia law in a judgment:

“In a legal first, a British High Court judge has recognised a shariah marriage when ruling on a ‘divorce’ petition of a Muslim woman, likely setting a precedent on the acceptance of Islamic marriages and divorces in the UK.
Mr Justice Williams ruled that an estranged Muslim couple’s Islamic marriage does fall under the scope of the 1973 Matrimonial Causes Act and that they could, therefore, ‘divorce’ — despite the couple never having had a legal civil ceremony, reports The Guardian. Nasreen Akhter and Mohammed Shabaz Khan, both of Pakistani heritage, had ‘married’ in an Islamic nikah ceremony conducted by an imam in 1998 in West London, and Mr Khan, a businessman, was said by Ms Akhter to have “always introduced me as his wife”. Ms Akhter attempted to file for divorce, which her partner rejected, with Mr Khan saying that they were not legally married, but only under Islamic law."

Exterminating Christians; but the West Does Not Care By James Reed

     The slightest offence against non-whites is pretty soon going to be met with the death penalty, but in some parts of the world Christians are exterminated, and the moral police in the West are silent. Since they now define what is right and wrong, that must mean that they are ok with this; otherwise why would people who have a politically correct hair trigger, not, well, explode into a burst of moral outrage?

“Nigerian Christian leaders have warned that if the current rate of massacres continue, with hundreds of believers being killed each month, Africa's most-populous nation is on the brink of decimating its Christian population by 2043. The warnings echoed as 86 more people were killed by the largely Muslim Fulani herdsmen in attacks on Christian farmers. The Punch on Sunday obtained comments by Bosun Emmanuel, the secretary of National Christian Elders Forum, at the recent conference of Catholic Men's Guild in Lagos, where the administration of President Muhammadu Buhari was accused of "openly pursuing an anti-Christian agenda that has resulted in countless murders of Christians all over the nation and destruction of vulnerable Christian communities." "Realistically speaking, Christianity is on the brink of extinction in Nigeria. The ascendancy of Sharia ideology in Nigeria rings the death toll for the Nigerian Church," Emmanuel said, calling on the Christian Association of Nigeria to be restructured to be able to better speak out for Christianity in the country. Although Christians make up nearly half of the 186 million population, for nearly a decade they've been heavily targeted by Islamic extremist groups, such as Boko Haram, and most recently by the semi-nomadic herdsmen. "In 2018, we can say in 25 years from now, we are facing the risk of being the last Christians in Nigeria. Therefore, Christians should be in the frontline of defending democracy in Nigeria," Emmanuel warned.”

The Migrant-Based Social Breakdown of Australia By James Reed

     An academic industry exists in Australian universities, when they are not receiving blood money from the defence industry, or even when they are, to promote the joys of diversity. Much like the double standard in proclaiming their commitment to harmony and peace, while taking the money of the weapons industry (not in itself a bad thing from our perspective, but inconsistent with their politically correct Leftoid worldview), there is the double standard of diversity. Pluralism and diversity by definition always improve a society, because, well, Anglo Saxons are evil and must be demographically displaced. How else to make sense of the mantra running through the sewerage pumped daily into the minds of vulnerable students, at tax payer’s expense, that pre-1947 Australia was intrinsically flawed and only migration, and ultimate complete Asianisation can save the soul of the nation, hallelujah.

     Yet, with this academic narrative, which has generated jobs for substandard low IQ academics, we find stories of old hard reality, of the real world on the streets, outside the protected walls of the child care centre of the modern university:

Libertarianism as a Marxist Heresy By Chris Knight

     Freedom, for those of us that no longer have it, such as free speech in a multicult jungle, is a rare gem. But, can there be too much of a good thing? Perhaps it is idle to speculate about such things, given the anarcho-tyranny that now suffocates us, but, I suppose there is still intellectual interest in the issue, the sort that prisoners must have in topics like transfinite set theory, while rotting in prison, waiting for the next form of abuse. Here is an interesting piece on libertarianism, a liberal position that takes freedom to its seeming limits, chasing free markets, and limited government:

“Henry Olsen, author of The Working Class Republican: Ronald Reagan and the Return of Blue-Collar Conservatism, described the “libertarian ideology” as a “religious faith” that dehumanizes people as commodities. “You can argue that libertarianism is a Marxist heresy, that where Marx said that the capitalist commodifies everything, the libertarian says, ‘Darn tootin,’” Olsen told Breitbart News Senior Editor-at-Large Rebecca Mansour on Monday’s Breitbart News Tonight on SiriusXM. Olsen framed libertarians as prioritizing economics over all other considerations: “Try and find somebody that doesn’t think tariffs are an abomination. You can’t find that person on the right [or] the left. I think this fundamental agreement about the international nature of the economy that seems to put politics, community, nation, and — dare I say — humanity as irrelevant concerns.”

Fleeing the Socialist Paradise By James Reed

     The Left in the West are going through a rebirth period, reviving classical Marxism. I am working away on my lap top at my old university here in dusty old Melbourne, and outside this room posters about Karl Marx are everywhere. Who financed that, George? And, what would old Karl have thought about gender fluidity? Anyway, that is the world in the day care centre of the university. In the real world, socialist places like Venezuela have a much grimmer outlook:

“The democratic socialist nation of Venezuela’s collapse is showing just how far people will go in order to escape the horrors of big government. In fact, the situation in Venezuela has gotten so bad that women are willing to risk being sexually abused in human trafficking rings in order to escape the horrors of socialism. Unfortunately, the harsh reality of government is bearing down on real people and making life incredibly miserable for those stuck in Venezuela.  It’s also no walk in the park for those who have managed to escape.  The Washington Post detailed one woman’s plight, and it’s a disturbing an harrowing tale:

The Fading of the City of Lights By Richard Miller

     Britain knows the score, having been well trained by its elites; but perhaps France is just a little behind, and needs some catching up:

“A trio of French soldiers on leave was arrested and face prosecution after they intervened to help a woman who was being robbed by a youth on the streets of Paris. The soldiers, who were said to have been drinking at the time, came across a woman in distress as she was being robbed of her mobile phone in Paris’s Saint-Ambroise metro station early Sunday morning, Le Parisien reports. The men, aged between 21 and 24, ran after the thief and caught up to him near the Boulevard Voltaire in the 11th arrondissement and confronted him. A source close to the investigation said the men attempted to retrieve the woman’s property but were met with resistance from the young man and a fight ensued. In the scuffle, the teen, who was found without any identification papers or an address, had one of his teeth chipped by one of the soldiers. Following an investigation by the Railway Network Squad (BRF), the three soldiers and the youth were arrested. “At the public prosecutor’s office, they did not agree on what to do,” a source close to the investigation said and added: “Some wanted to give them up to the military. Finally, a prosecutor’s assistant decided to prosecute the soldiers.”

Letter to The Editor - Please do not approve the proposal to abolish the recitation of the Lord's Prayer from Parliament

To THE SENATE STANDING COMMITTEE ON PROCEDURE c/- Mr Richard Pye, Clerk of the Senate, Parliament House, Canberra

     Please do not approve the proposal to abolish the recitation of the Lord's Prayer from Parliament. My reasons are as follows:

(1) Most Australians are followers of a sacred tradition, though not all of these followers are adherents of Christianity. Therefore, Parliamentary proceedings are better commenced with a reading of this prayer than no reading.
(2) The text of the prayer is very inclusive. Although said to be a prayer used by Jesus, its origins are lost in the mists of the far past. It is a prayer that adherents of other faiths can participate in in good conscience. The prayer is a key part of Christian liturgy, but its text is not specifically Christian.
(3) The reading of the prayer does not in any way harm those who are atheists or agnostics; but it certainly encourages believers to do good rather than ill. It is thus in the national interest for it to be read.
(4) Contrary to so-called scientific claims, the universe and human existence remain profound mysteries. A people is wise to bow its collective head to the Invisible and Inscrutable even if unable to comprehend fully its nature. This is particularly so for parliaments, which represent peoples.
(5) The sentiments of the prayer are entirely admirable and would have the support of the great majority of Australians.

North Korea: The Missiles Remain the Same By James Reed

     If it sounds too good to be true, simply infer that things are always worse than one thought, because Murphy’s law rules the universe. Take North Korea, which many optimists thought had moved away from an agenda of destroying the universe to one of allowing its people to eat more than bark, graduating to grass. No, missiles are back on the menu boys:

“U.S. spy agencies are seeing signs that North Korea is constructing new missiles at a factory that produced the country’s first intercontinental ballistic missiles capable of reaching the United States, according to officials familiar with the intelligence. Newly obtained evidence, including satellite photos taken in recent weeks, indicates that work is underway on at least one and possibly two liquid-fueled ICBMs at a large research facility in Sanumdong, on the outskirts of Pyongyang, according to the officials, who spoke on the condition of anonymity to describe classified intelligence. The findings are the latest to show ongoing activity inside North Korea’s nuclear and missile facilities at a time when the country’s leaders are engaged in arms talks with the United States. The new intelligence does not suggest an expansion of North Korea’s capabilities but shows that work on advanced weapons is continuing weeks after President Trump declared in a Twitter posting that Pyongyang was “no longer a Nuclear Threat.”

Hollywood Imploding? Or Just Licking its Wounds? By Chris Knight

     Hollywood has faced a challenge where some high fliers have been outed for making paedophilic jokes and remarks. That though has not disturbed the actors, who, unlike the ME Tooism hysteria, seem to have got behind the freakos that have made the remarks, demanding that said freakos be put right back in the driver’s seat:

     It is hypothesised that Hollywood will attempt to ride this one out, because the sexual exploitation of women is one thing, but the kiddy thing is just too much to deal with. Hence, soon, we will see the silence treatment, as the Dark Lords become more careful in one-line forums about their dark thoughts and fantasies. Far better to pump all of this, in various toxic forms, into film:

Christians Need Not Apply By James Reed

     First things first:

“The British government has admitted that no Christians were taken among the Syrian refugees flown into Britain recently, with the Home Office rejected the handful of non-Muslims selected for resettlement by the United Nations. Despite the persecution of Christians at the hands of Islamic extremists in Syria having been declared genocide by the U.S., the European Union (EU) and even British MPs themselves in a 2016 parliamentary vote, the 1,112 Syrians that Britain resettled in the first three months of 2018 consisted only of Muslims. The Barnabas Fund, an aid agency which supports Christians persecuted for their faith, obtained the figures via Freedom of Information requests after “a protracted tussle with the Home Office”, The Sunday Times reports."

Let’s Not Forget Socialist New Zealand. Who? By James Reed

     A big hello to all our friends in socialist New Zealand, who face the same struggles which we do here. We have big Australia Mal, and you have the incumbent Prime Minister, Jacinda Ardern, leader of the New Zealand Labour Party,  who took office on 26 October 2017, and  is currently on maternity leave, and accordingly, Deputy Prime Minister Winston Peters has become  Acting Prime Minister on 21 June 2018. I do not know whether this is a good thing or a bad thing. We still are finding socialist absurdities such as this:

“New Zealand’s most violent and disturbed inmates will soon be able to walk on real grass, take sun baths and practise yoga in their cells as the country opens its first “humane” prison for maximum-security offenders. The NZ$300m prison has just been completed on the outskirts of Auckland and, when it opens, will be the only specialist facility for maximum- and high-security male prisoners in the country. The prison has been designed to operate as a “de facto mental health unit” as the number of mentally ill incarcerated men continues to soar.  New Zealand has one of the highest incarceration rates in the developed world, with Māori people accounting for more than 50% of all prisoners, despite representing only 15% of the overall population. Some 90% of prisoners have a life-long diagnosis of mental illness or addiction.

The Media; Enemy of the People By Chris Knight

     President Trump has not done much, but what he has done is spearhead a much-needed attack upon the mainstream media. In turn, the media have responded that he is aiding those who would want to restrict the freedom of the press. I will not go into all the internal details about the present US debates here, as you can read it in the links below. The ethical issues need to be thought through from our perspective, though:

Letter to The Editor - There is good reason to feel that we have the better arguments and are in the majority

To The Age          Although federal Labor MP Linda Burney believes it would be very wrong if constitutional recognition becomes an election issue ("Settle Indigenous recognition issue before federal poll: Labor MP", 31/7), that has already happened. The ALP is plainly tied to such change, so those of us who do not want to see further moves towards the dismemberment of our nation have nowhere to go but the Coalition. It is good that Liberal MP Julian Leeser has called for comment "from a wide range of Australians". This should include those firmly opposed to the recommendations of the Uluru Statement from the Heart or any other inequitable tampering with our constitution. There is good reason to feel that we have the better arguments and are in the majority.

Letter to The Editor - Why is it that for half a century or so powerful interests have kept trying to alter public opinion

To The Australian          The cross-party parliamentary committee that has just reported on indigenous constitutional recognition ("Renewed push for indigenous 'voice'", 31/7) is badly out of step with public opinion. Australians, generally, can see that such a move would jeopardise our future political stability and security, and that it is inequitable in unjustly favouring one small and ill-defined group of citizens. Why is it that for half a century or so powerful interests have kept trying to alter public opinion on this matter. Who are they and why is it so important for them? Is it because a divided nation would be easier to manipulate, via the UNO, in the interests of massively powerful financial elites?

The Pope Confronts the Miracle of Illegal Immigration By Peter West

     I continue my review of the amazing adventures of the ever-politically correct communist Pope, with no offence at all intended to any Catholic readers, but, my brothers and sisters, we have a problem with this man. As we know, the Pope has been one of the leading advocates of mass immigration to the West, especially of Muslims. I have never found any statements by him about the need for Asia to take in refugees, such as Japan and China, or even for Africa, boosted with foreign aid, to take them. Now though, there is the very first sign that all may not be swimmingly well in the land of mass immigration:

“Pope Francis is urging everyone to combat the “shameful crime” of human trafficking, noting that it’s often linked to migrant smuggling. In remarks Sunday to the public in St. Peter’s Square, Francis decried that many adults and children are trafficked into slavery for forced labour, sex businesses, organ trafficking, begging rackets and other criminal activities. Francis noted that the United Nations will dedicate Monday to encouraging anti-trafficking efforts.”

100 percent Concentrated Evil By Chris Knight

     Coming face to face with 100 percent evil is, to say the least, a very disturbing experience. Typically, people think about mass murders who do grisly things to individuals. But, the real people to be scared about are the elites who can bring down the curtain of the civilised world. I do not exaggerate, and US politics is exposing levels of rot and corruption that have not been aired in public before:

“Fox News Channel legal analyst Gregg Jarrett, author of The Russia Hoax: The Illicit Scheme to Clear Hillary Clinton and Frame Donald Trump, described the “Trump-Russia collusion” as “an effort to undo the election.” He offered his remarks during a Wednesday interview on SiriusXM’s Breitbart News Tonight with Breitbart News Senior Editors-at-Large Rebecca Mansour and Joel Pollak. Jarrett said, “There was scheme to clear Hillary Clinton and frame Donald Trump. Top officials at the FBI and the Department of Justice were threatened by Trump; this guy is going to come in there and drain the swamp, and that threatened their jobs and their positions. There is nothing that will motivate people more than power forfeited, so people like James Comey, Peter Strzok, Lisa Page, Andy McCabe, people at the Department of Justice decided that they were going to clear Hillary Clinton of the many crimes she surely committed. To do that, they had to twist the facts and contort the law.”

The Powder Keg of France By Bruce Bennett

     We have been relatively lucky here in Australia that we do not yet have the problems that are seen in Europe, such as France. We need to keep an eye on events and continue reporting and carefully monitoring the situation, as we live in a world where things can unexpectedly change, rapidly:

“At the World Express cafe, groups of men argue in Arabic. On side streets, men smoke shisha pipes and talk — again, in Arabic — on every corner. Women shop in veils and scarves, always accompanied by a male relative.
As a white European, I attract odd looks. When I take out my mobile phone for a photograph, a young man jumps in front of me, waving his index finger in my face, shouting: 'La! La! La!' (No! No! No!) Yet this is not an exotic, far-flung destination. This is France. Moreover, this is Paris and only six miles from the Eiffel Tower. The reason for all this activity — in an area which even the most optimistic estate agent would struggle to sell as 'cosmopolitan and bohemian' — is quite simple: immigration on a mammoth scale. The area in question is called Saint-Denis in the north-east of the city, where the Basilica holds the resting places of many French kings and queens.  Recently, it was reported that this sprawling district now holds as many as 300,000 illegal immigrants, many of whom rely on crime or the 'black economy' to make money. The official legal population in Saint-Denis is estimated at 1.5 million.
