Letter to the Editor - Perhaps we should regard ourselves as a "free country" in which mutual respect for "the other" is not eroded by fanaticism

To The Age        Chris Pearson asserts that Australia "is a secular country" (3/6). Well, yes and no. Our sovereign is a ruler whose authority is vested in the Christian sacred tradition. In certain respects, therefore, we are a Christian nation. Perhaps the main purpose of the republican movement is to bring that situation to an end. The suggestion that "the Coalition sees its victory as a mandate to allow hate speech" is extreme. More truly, the Coalition has promised protection for those Australians, individuals, groups and institutions, who are religious; and this was made necessary by the ferocious campaign against people of faith waged by a significant number of Australians and more or less supported by the ALP/Greens alliance. Perhaps we should regard ourselves as a "free country" in which mutual respect for "the other" is not eroded by fanaticism, whether religious or secular. At the moment that suggests that added protection is needed for the religious sector rather than the secular sector.

Letter to the Editor - Well-meaning people, insufficiently informed and lacking in wisdom, can do enormous harm to a nation

To The Australian        Denzil Bourne is right to warn (3/6) that "any attempt to enshrine in the Constitution a separate entity based on race is doomed to failure." But will people of influence in Australia follow his lead by publicly admitting that the whole campaign to achieve "indigenous constitutional recognition" has been fatally flawed from the start? A huge emotional attachment to the cause has been allowed to build up in recent decades; and admitting error will be very painful. Oscar Levy, a Jewish admirer of Friedrich Nietzsche, published a book a century ago or so entitled The Idiocy of Idealism. That's just it. Well-meaning people, insufficiently informed and lacking in wisdom, can do enormous harm to a nation with the best of intentions. Fragmenting Australia to appease feelings of guilt for past sins is exactly that kind of folly.

Therefore, It is Not Ok to be White in New Zealand or Australia By Peter Ewer

     The take home message, from the article below, is that a hysterical cult now runs Western society, as this article on little old New Zealand says:
  https://www.naturalnews.com/2019-05-25-human-rights-commission-its-okay-to-be-white-message-new-zealand.html

“The New Zealand Human Rights Commission says that the message “it’s okay to be white” has “no place” in the country. The ‘controversy’ began when “it’s okay to be white” t-shirts and stickers were sold on a New Zealand auction site called Trade Me. “Wear this shirt as a white person to troll your local Communists, or wear this shirt as a brown person to troll stuck-up middle-class urbanites. Either way it’s funny!” read the description to the products. The Human Rights Commission said they don’t see the funny side and that the message “it’s okay to be white” has “no place” in New Zealand because it conveys “a message of intolerance, racism and division”. To its credit, the Trade Me website refused to pull the items, saying the slogan didn’t break its rules. “While we know there is some debate about this slogan we don’t think these items cross that line,” said head of trust and safety, George Hiotakis.

Assange Injustice Shows that this Really is a Prison Planet Now By Paul Walker

     The man who should be give a medal for exposing corruption, for showing the dirty secrets that lie behind democracy, instead will be destroyed, and Trump, the one person who owes his election to Assange is happy to burn him for the Dark Lords of the Deep State:
  https://medium.com/@caityjohnstone/how-many-times-must-assange-be-proven-right-before-people-start-listening-61229805a3d8

“And there it is. WikiLeaks founder Julian Assange has been charged by the Trump administration’s Justice Department with 17 counts of violating the Espionage Act, carrying a maximum sentence of 175 years in prison. Exactly as Assange and his defenders have been warning would happen for nearly a decade. The indictment, like the one which preceded it last month with Assange’s arrest, is completely fraudulent, as it charges Assange with “crimes” that are indistinguishable from conventional journalistic practices. The charges are based on the same exact evidence which was available to the Obama administration, which as journalist Glenn Greenwald noted last year declined to prosecute Assange citing fear of destroying press freedoms. Hanna Bloch-Wehba, an associate professor at Drexel University’s Thomas R. Kline School of Law, has called the indictment “a worst-case, nightmare, mayday scenario for First Amendment enthusiasts.” Bloch-Wehba explains that that the indictment’s “theories for liability rest heavily on Assange’s relationship with Manning and his tendency to encourage Manning to continue to bring WikiLeaks material” in a way that “is not readily distinguishable from many reporter-source relationships cultivated over a period of time.”

Censors have No Sense of Humour By Chris Knight

     The latest in the censorship race is that fun videos satirizing Dumocrat Nancy Pelosi, not the sharpest tool in the Democ-rat woodworking cabinet, gets “censored” by the ever-friendly lucky Zucky’s Facey Bookie:
  https://www.theguardian.com/technology/2019/may/24/facebook-leaves-fake-nancy-pelosi-video-on-site

“Facebook says it will continue to host a video of Nancy Pelosi that has been edited to give the impression that the Democratic House speaker is drunk or unwell, in the latest incident highlighting its struggle to deal with disinformation. The viral clip shows Pelosi – who has publicly angered Donald Trump in recent days – speaking at an event, but it has been slowed down to give the impression she is slurring her words. Several versions of the clip appeared to be circulating. The president’s personal lawyer, the former mayor of New York Rudy Giuliani, was among the Trump supporters who promoted the story. He tweeted – then deleted – a link to a copy of the video on Facebook with the caption: “What is wrong with Nancy Pelosi? Her speech pattern is bizarre.”

Game of Thrones .. Eh, Knives! By Richard Miller

     I have been paying attention to knife crimes here in Britain, because, well, I am a knife collector, or rather was many years ago, and still own a butter knife sharp enough to spread butter on my morning crumpet. That’s something.
  https://www.breitbart.com/europe/2019/05/25/gang-members-points-scoring-system-stabbings-shootings/

“Gang members in London and the wider country are taking part in a deadly game in which they receive varying points for stabbing or shooting victims in different parts of the body. The system of point scoring sees 50 points given for an attack on the head or face, 30 points for the chest, 20 for the stomach, and so on. The gang members often brag about the points they have racked up in rap videos posted to YouTube and other social media. One such victim of this type of crime was Rhyhiem Barton, a 17-year-old boy who was shot in South London last year. Barton had himself been seen in a video rapping about “the scorecard” in a drill music video seen over 300,000 times. Barton was involved in a mentorship programme and his mentor, Sayce Holmes-Lewis, told Sky News: “Is there a literal scoreboard? Yes. People are keeping count of the attacks that each organisation is carrying out.” Mr Holmes-Lewis continued: “You stab a person in the head or the chest you get a certain number of points. You get varying points for the severity of the violent act. Young people’s reality seems to be very warped when it comes to violence. They think it is a game. Taking somebody out and killing somebody is now fun.”

Heart Attack or Sexual Assault? By Mrs Vera West

     It is one of the wages of feminism, that people are too scared of being hit by sexual assault charges that they do not perform CPR on women, thus letting them die. That makes sense.
  https://www.dailymail.co.uk/health/article-7057287/Women-face-greater-odds-death-suffer-cardiac-arrest.html

“Women are less likely than men to receive life-saving CPR in a public place if they suffer a cardiac arrest, research suggests. Dutch scientists found 73 per cent of men who had public cardiac arrests received CPR from a bystander - but only 68 per cent of women did. Fears touching a woman's chest may be seen as sexual harassment may put people off from helping to restart their heart, scientists say. An expert commenting on the study also claimed that bystanders may be scared of hurting 'frail' women by performing CPR. The researchers warned people are less likely to realise the seriousness of a woman's condition and may be slower to realise they need help. This may lead to delays in calling the emergency services, hindering the survival chances of female patients. The British Heart Foundation said the finding that women were seven per cent less likely to get CPR from a member of the public was 'worrying'.”

Exit the Traitors By Richard Miller

     Another one bites the dust, and it is about time, too, as British Prime Minister Theresa May resigns in girly tears, and exits stage door left, probably to get some well-paying EU job in the great hive. Yes, they didn’t call her “May” for nothing.

The Threat to Religious Freedom By James Reed

     Conservatives, God bless them, are rightfully saying that threats to religious freedom was one reason why the Coalition, who never won an opinion poll, did win the one that counted, making the election a kind of Trumpish affair:
  https://www.conservatives.org.au/the_shy_conservatives_sang_out_loud_and_clear
  https://www.spectator.com.au/2019/05/ten-reasons-labor-lost-the-unlosable-election/

6.    “Israel Folau and ‘freedom of speech’. The elephant in the room throughout the entire election campaign was the saga involving Israel Folau and Rugby Australia. All of a sudden the issues of freedom of speech and freedom of religion were brought to the fore. Up until recently Labor had been riding the high moral ground of championing everything LGBTIQ. But with Folau’s trial and termination came the public realisation that ‘tolerance’ had morphed into denouncing any other opinion.
7.    Religious Freedom. Following on from the previous point, many private schools took the extraordinary step of urging parents not to vote Labor as it would strip them of their right to employ staff who shared their ethos. This was because Labor’s legal affairs spokesman, Mark Dreyfus, said that:
A Shorten government would remove key legal protections for religious freedoms, fuelling concerns schools will find it more difficult to insist teachers agree to uphold their core values.
8.    The Gender Commission. Dr David van Gend outlined the implications for parents in regards to Labor’s transgender policy brilliantly here in The Spectator Australia. But he was obviously not alone. Kerri-Anne Kennerley also unleashed an extraordinary attack on Labor’s plan to fund a National Gender Centre. As Kennerley said:
These kids out there who are gender confused, and there’s a percentage of people out there gender confused, they will put up this Commission and we, like Tasmania, will have a child and it won’t be male or female, it will be gender-free. That’ll be national…
And if your child is confused, the rights of your child will go tothem, you will have no rights as a parent. That child will go, ‘I want to be either a boy or girl, please give me whatever I need’ and you as a parent will have no choice.”
1.    Tanya Plibersek’s aggressive policy of extending abortion. While the subject of abortion may have been viewed as too ‘controversial’ and ‘divisive’ for the Coalition to tackle, for many conservative religious voters such as myself, this was the real deal breaker. Especially when the deputy leader, Tanya Plibersek, promised that if Labor won the election then they would offer free abortions in all public hospitals.
2.    Scott Morrison. Credit where credit’s due. Because Labor didn’t merely lose the election; the Coalition actually won it. In his acceptance speech Australia’s first Pentecostal Prime Minister acknowledge that, in keeping with his theology, “I’ve always believed in miracles”. In fact, Dennis Shanahan wrote in The Australian:
Morrison didn’t just beat Labor in this election. He beat the Zeitgeist, the vibe and the emotional appeals while leaving Clive Palmer and the Greens failing to live up to expectations.
Bill Shorten’s political career ended last night but Morrison’s is just beginning.
In scenes, reminiscent of Hillary Clinton’s defeat at the hands of Trump, many leftist progressives had a complete emotional meltdown. For instance, Dr. John Dickson, formerly of the Centre for Public Christianity, issued the following tweet in response to the hysterical nastiness of Jane Caro:
But enough of the schadenfreude, or should that be as Stephen MacAlpine labels it, ‘Shortenfreude’.”Australia has dodged a bullet and we’ve been given the benefit of a conservative government for another whole term. Now that we’ve seen how unreliable all of the pollsters are, maybe we can even stick with the same Prime Minister for an entire term.”

Affirming the Right By Richard Miller

     While I don’t particularly like the site Affirmative Right, which instantly brings to mind affirmative action, there is still some good stuff. So, in this game it is important to keep an open mind, not to be a narrow bigot (only a broad-minded bigot) and read and think freely. There is a good Richard Wolstencroft video, “Report from Tiger Mountain,” giving an intelligent take on conspiracy theories, namely that some are absurd, but the core social metaphysical hypothesis is correct, that humans have agencies, and groups of humans with power use whatever they can be get things done. Hence, if this is not out in the open, a conspiracy. Conspiracies are better called, “plans.” There is another article, “Why Meghan Markle is Bad for the British Royal Family,” which may be painful for some of us of the old school to read, but life now is painful. Also, strong language and shocking TV footage of semi nude Meghan, that I did not know about, and led to me having terrible pains in the chest.

Sinking Assange By Chris Knight

     The Deep State globalists really want to make an example out of Assange, so that no-one will ever attempt to expose their evil doings. Note how the messenger is literally going to be shot here and not the evil Dark Lords standing behind all the exposed mischief.
  https://www.zerohedge.com/news/2019-05-23/assange-faces-death-penalty-doj-files-espionage-act-charges

“The worst fears of Julian Assange's legal team have just been realized. Just as Wikileaks' editor in chief anticipated, the DoJ has revealed that a grand jury in Virginia has returned a new 18-count superseding indictment against Assange that includes violations of the Espionage Act stemming from his role in publishing the classified documents leaked by Chelsea Manning, as well as his original charge of conspiring to break into a government computer, per the New York Times. The DOJ said with the indictment that Assange will face a maximum of 10 years for each of the 17 Espionage Act violations, plus the five-year penalty for his earlier hacking charge. In addition to significantly raising the punishment threshold (from a maximum of 5.5 years under the previous indictment to the prospect of a death sentence for violating the Espionage Act), the new charges will raise serious first amendment issues as Assange will become the first journalist charged under the Espionage Act. Though it's not a guarantee, Espionage Act violations have, in the past, carried the prospect of a death sentence, though Assange's specific violations will likely spare him the possibility of such a fate.

Gasp! Iranian Theat! Quick Nuke “Em! By Peter Ewer

     The Deep state is pressing Trump for war in Iran, since he has served his purpose, and will be defeated by an extreme communist candidate in 2020, and put in a cage, along with all his family, except Jared. The man is too stupid to see what is coming. The best thing that could happen for America now is that he gets impeached, to stir the melted pot, even more.
  https://apnews.com/a770998e42de4ed98257c91210b2fbbf

“The Pentagon on Thursday will present plans to the White House to send up to 10,000 more troops to the Middle East, in a move to beef up defenses against potential Iranian threats, U.S. officials said Wednesday. The officials said no final decision has been made yet, and it’s not clear if the White House would approve sending all or just some of the requested forces. Officials said the move is not in response to any new threat from Iran, but is aimed at reinforcing security in the region. They said the troops would be defensive forces, and the discussions include additional Patriot missile batteries, more ships and increased efforts to monitor Iran. The officials spoke on condition of anonymity because the plans have not been formally announced. Thursday morning’s meeting comes as tensions with Iran continue to simmer, and it wasn’t clear if a decision would be made during the session. Any move to deploy more forces to the Middle East would signal a shift for President Donald Trump, who has repeatedly emphasized the need to reduce America’s troop presence in the region. U.S. officials have provided few details about possible Iranian threats, but indicated they initially involved missiles loaded onto small Iranian boats. This week officials said the missiles have been taken off the boats near Iran’s shore, but other maritime threats continue.

China’s Sex Slave markets By Mrs Vera West

     Here is yet another example of the dark side of globalism, in fact for most small people, everything about globalism has a dark side. Anyway, sexual slavery of North Korean girls is a big thing:
  https://www.zerohedge.com/news/2019-05-20/north-korean-sex-slaves-forced-endure-rape-exploitation-and-forced-marriages-china

“Tens of thousands of North Korean women and girls are actively trafficked into the Chinese sex trade by criminal organizations, and are often forced to endure "systematic rape, sex trafficking, sexual slavery, sexual abuse, prostitution, cybersex trafficking, forced marriage and forced pregnancy," according to a new report. Following an extensive investigation, the Korea Future Initiative found that victims are "commonly aged between 12-29 and overwhelmingly female." Many of them are sold more than once, and are "forced into at least one form of sexual slavery within a year of leaving their homeland." Sex trafficking and exploitation is a $105,000,000 per year business for the Chinese underworld, according to the report. "Victims are prostituted for as little as ¥30 Chinese Yuan ($4 United States Dollars), sold as wives for just ¥1000 Chinese Yuan ($146 United States Dollars), and trafficked into cybersex dens for exploitation by a global online audience."

Letter to The Editor - The essence of this case against is fourfold

To The Age        Current reporting of moves for constitutional recognition of indigenous Australians almost invariably assumes that such would be a good thing ("MP warns against rush on indigenous recognition", 29/5). The inadequate space given to the very powerful case against such a constitutional change suggests that ideology is trumping fair play and that powerful interests behind the scenes are not willing to encourage a genuine national debate prior to a "managed" referendum. The essence of this case against is fourfold. (1) The credentials of "indigenous" spokespeople and urgers for this cause are suspect, as are the history and principles invoked. (2) The campaign is divisive and endangers national unity, as Keith Windschuttle and other analysts have shown. (3) The proposal is fundamentally inequitable and is unfair to other Australians (the great majority). (4) A new and unwelcome element of unjust racial discrimination would be introduced into the Constitution.

Letter to The Editor - Truth-telling about our history" should be left to individuals and not entrusted to an official body

To The Australian        Assertions made in the full page advertisement supporting the Uluru Statement from the Heart (29/5) can be challenged. This campaign is not "a movement of all Australian people". It is an agitation by sections of the people and is opposed by a significant number of other Australians. That is why we have not yet had a referendum and why the promoters of such an event are having such difficulty in formulating the terms and arousing sufficient public support. The statement is not "a historic mandate" but an effusion that forms part of an ongoing political campaign whose real nature (behind the scenes) may well be quite different from its public image. "Truth-telling about our history" should be left to individuals and not entrusted to an official body that would almost certainly be ideologically biased. We do not want the sovietisation of historical discussion in our land.   Australia, a unified nation under the Crown, cannot make a treaty with a part of itself. What is called "reconciliation" in this context is really disruption.

Letter to The Editor - The claim that polls show that "more than sixty per cent of Australians back the idea" is questionable

To The Australian        Australians should be wary of the way in which its new government is handling the question of "constitutional" recognition of our so-called "indigenous people" ("Time is right for indigenous voice to be heard in houses of parliament", 28/5). George Williams states that "the Uluru Statement has built considerable momentum". It also has the capacity to fatally divide the political order of this currently unified and united nation.     The claim that polls show that "more than sixty per cent of Australians back the idea" is questionable. Polls are on the nose at the moment. In moving towards a planned referendum on the "voice to Parliament", the PM must ensure that fair publicity and funding is provided for the "no" case.

Letter to The Editor - Our indigenous Australians really do already have "a voice in the constitution"

To The Age        The cartoon by Wilcox on the "gap" (28/5) is less than funny and more than politically loaded. Our indigenous Australians really do already have "a voice in the constitution", for that document represents all Australian citizens. There are parliamentary representatives and indigenous organisations all ready to hear the will of indigenous citizens and act on their behalf. The cartoon is sympathetic to Australians of one ethnicity (the indigenous man looks sensitive, thoughtful and sad). It is offensive to Australians of European blood, by presenting one of us as a boorish philistine. I wouldn't waste time pointing this out, were it not for the fact that there is a huge and ruthless campaign afoot to force unjust constitutional change upon us all. It needs to be firmly resisted.

France Does Not Belong to the French! Everyone Has a Right to be Here! By Richard Miller

     It is a toss-up whether the US or Europe presents the best evidence that globalism and the diversity cult associated with it are tearing down the civilisation of the West, but in the end, any such foot race is purely academic:
  https://www.rt.com/news/459822-migrant-protest-paris-airport/

“Hundreds of ‘Black Vest’ migrant protesters occupied Charles de Gaulle airport in Paris on Sunday demanding to speak to Prime Minister Édouard Philippe in a demonstration against deportations and in favor of legal papers for all. The group, estimated to be about 500 people, gathered in Terminal 2 of the airport as riot police officers stood at the foot of the escalators and monitored their activity. “France does not belong to the French! Everyone has a right to be here!” one of the demonstrators shouted into a loudspeaker. The protest was organized by the migrant support group La Chapelle Debout. It said its members were calling themselves the ‘Black Vests’ after the Yellow Vest protestors  called for ‘papers for all,’ a meeting with Philippe to discuss asylum policy, and a meeting with the leaders of Air France to demand they stop “any financial, material, logistical or political participation in deportations.”

On Increasing Richness and Diversity By Charles Taylor

     How can any one doubt that illegal folk, who are only trying to get the same things we all have, do not bring untold joy to our vast land full of cornucopian wealth for all to enjoy? This is, after all, the West, and our mission is to spread love all over the place.
  https://www.dailymail.co.uk/news/article-7037177/Healthcare-worker-suspected-involved-thousand-deaths-charged-12-murders.html

“A healthcare worker living in the US illegally is suspected of being involved with more than 1,000 unexplained deaths in Texas. Billy Chemirmir, 46, has been charged with smothering 11 murders. The Kenyan worked as a home healthcare aide, was initially charged in 2018 with the murder of 81-year-old Lu Thi Harris. On Tuesday, Chemirmir was indicted on six more murder charges. According to Dallas News, Chemirmir has now been charged with killing Phyllis Payne, 91, on May 14, 2016; Phoebe Perry, 94, on June 5, 2016; and 85-year-old Norma French on October 8, 2016. He was also charged with the murders of Doris Gleason, 92, on October 29, 2016; Rosemary Curtis, 76, on January 17, 2018; and Mary Brooks on January 31, 2018. He has been charged with five other murders, but those identities have not been released. Chemirmir is also charged with three counts of attempted murder. He is being held in Dallas County Jail on $9million bond. He is also facing immigration-related charges for being in the U.S. unlawfully. Chemirmir, who worked as a nurse in his native Kenya, is at the center of an investigation into nearly 1,000 unexplained deaths in Texas, according to KRLD. He was arrested in March 2017 for allegedly smothering Harris with her pillow and stealing her jewelry box. Police had been watching him in relation to another woman, 91, who he had allegedly tried to smother to death in the same fashion and robbed before fleeing.”
