Obviously the Elites Don’t Want Us to Breed By Mrs Vera West

     A new book (published March 21, 2017), by Jancee Dunn, How Not to Hate Your Husband After Kids:http://www.slate.com/articles/life/family/2017/05/happy_mother_s_day_you_will_hate_your_husband_after_having_a_baby.html
https://www.amazon.com/Hate-Your-Husband-After-Kids/dp/0316267104, probably should have been called: Don’t Get married, Or Don’t have Kids. Here is a sample of what to expect in reading this book, from an extract at Slate.com:

“Perhaps the single most widely cited piece of research on marriage and children comes from couples’ therapists John and Julie Gottman, who found that 67 percent of couples are less satisfied with their marriages after having a baby. A 2009 study of first-time parents in the Journal of Personality and Social Psychology found that a scant 7 percent of mothers reported feeling more satisfied with their marriage, compared with 15 percent of fathers. (As of now, the available research is much more robust for heterosexual couples.) Many factors conspire to shorten a new parent’s fuse: hallucinatory fatigue, zigzagging hormones, a fraught learning curve, and, as one paper I read noted succinctly, “increased interactions with medical professionals.”

Anne Coulter’s Tweet Twittered by Twitty Twitter By Bruce Bennett

     US journalist firebrand Ann Coulter, someone we don’t have the equivalent to here in Australia, has been given a swift smack on the knuckles by Twitter for this alleged case of “hate speech”:
Ann Coulter posted a link to a recent article on her titled “To Say, ‘Stop Raping Me!’ In English, Press ‘1’ Now” on Twitter earlier this week. She added the comment, “Liberals are all for rape, provided that the penis forcibly inserted in you is attached to an illegal immigrant.” From: http://www.breitbart.com/tech/2017/05/13/ann-coulter-tweet-flagged-as-hate-speech-by-twitter/.

     Twitter said that the comments violated its “hateful conduct policy,” which defined “hateful conduct” as:
•    violent threats;
•    wishes for the physical harm, death, or disease of individuals or groups;
•    references to mass murder, violent events, or specific means of violence in which/with which such groups have been the primary targets or victims;
•    behavior that incites fear about a protected group;
•    repeated and/or non-consensual slurs, epithets, racist and sexist tropes, or other content that degrades someone.

Is it Ok to Beat Your Wife? By Mrs Vera West

    Ah, multiculturalism, simply wonderful…According to a group of women it is alright for Muslim men to hit their wives: http://www.theaustralian.com.au/national-affairs/its-ok-to-hit-wives-say-hizb-uttahrir-women/news-story/52dd838887cb0a0c32686c7a31cb96d8. As I want to get this accurate, I will attempt the magic trick of cutting and pasting from the article with my electronic scissors:

“Muslim men are allowed to hit their wives — but only gently, and not with fists, instead using short sticks and pieces of fabric, according to a new video produced by the Australian women’s branch of radical Islamic political movement Hizb ut-Tahrir.

Enjoying the Decline By Uncle Len, in Permanent Decline

    My title is from a book which I have not read, but I saw somewhere, but I forgot where, by some author, whose name I can’t remember. Brain fogs seem to be my lot for much of my waking hours. Anyway, I digress from what I was writing about. What was that? I can’t remember. Well not exactly can’t remember, more like, I never said what it was that I was going to say in the first place. Hell, Greenacres made a comedy series about this kind of brain flatulence, with its delightful character Hank Kimball (played by Alvy Moore, 1921-1997) where  the Encyclopedia of Television states that Kimball “personifies a kind of infinite regress, where every empirical statement branches into multiple statements that in turn preclude it, spiraling each new observation back and away from itself like an inductive Ecsherism.” https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Hank_Kimball. He qualified himself to death, the ultimate fate of government agencies: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=pVcXhaGOZyg.

    That brings me to dropping out, something I would have done if I had gone to university in the 1960s, dropped out and never returned. In fact, it is a mighty good thing to do today, saving oneself great debt while being unemployed. But many folk are now downscaling selling their homes and hitting the road in mobile homes: http://www.naturalnews.com/2017-05-04-husband-and-wife-ditch-fancy-house-and-cars-to-happily-live-in-a-van.html; https://www.mindbodygreen.com/0-29856/i-live-in-a-van-heres-why-i-think-its-the-ultimate-life-hack.html; http://livingfree.news/.
    I definitely welcome the movement to downscaling. With jobs set to disappear, and the evil financial system in place still, people will need to adopt these alternative life styles. I hope someday to put together a book about this, Uncle Len’s Tips for the Simple Life, if my busy schedule permits, and I remember.
Remember, what?

Even Biochemistry Favours the Elite’s Destruction of Manhood by Mrs Vera West

Here is the abstract from Psychoneuroendocrinology. 2013 Sep;38(9):1777-85. doi: 10.1016/j.psyneuen.2013.02.014. Epub 2013 Mar 23.
“Oral contraceptive use in women changes preferences for male facial masculinity and is associated with partner facial masculinity,”
Little AC, Burriss RP, Petrie M, Jones BC, Roberts SC, just so you know that I am not making this stuff up:

“Millions of women use hormonal contraception and it has been suggested that such use may alter mate preferences. To examine the impact of oral contraceptive (pill) use on preferences, we tested for within-subject changes in preferences for masculine faces in women initiating pill use. Between two sessions, initiation of pill use significantly decreased women’s preferences for male facial masculinity but did not influence preferences for same-sex faces. To test whether altered preference during pill use influences actual partner choice, we examined facial characteristics in 170 age-matched male partners of women who reported having either been using or not using the pill when the partnership was formed. Both facial measurements and perceptual judgements demonstrated that partners of women who used the pill during mate choice have less masculine faces than partners of women who did not use hormonal contraception at this time. Our data (A) provide the first experimental evidence that initiation of pill use in women causes changes in facial preferences and (B) documents downstream effects of these changes on real-life partner selection. Given that hormonal contraceptive use is widespread, effects of pill use on the processes of partner formation have important implications for relationship stability and may have other biologically relevant consequences.”

The Epidemic of Universitis by James Reed

It has been reported that there is a major mental health crisis sweeping through “our” universities, with over 70 percent of students experiencing high or very high levels of stress, and over one in three saying that they have contemplated self-harm or suicide: http://www.theaustralian.com.au/higher-education/epidemic-of-stressed-university-students/news-story/6faa252ef18984e39bc5cd24f6413a22.

A national survey found that over half of students sampled had reported feelings of worthlessness, had panic attacks or experienced trouble sleeping. If one does a bit of Googling, one finds that there are similar results across the world: http://www.collegedegreesearch.net/stress-in-college-students/.

Good News about Nuclear Destruction By James Reed

If you are like me, then you operate on the methodological principle that the truth must be the opposite of what the Greenies believe. Hence, they believe in global warming; so global cooling could be occurring. They believe in peak oil; so the world must be continuously making oil, coming from the deep crust and the molten core: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Abiogenic_petroleum_origin. This must be so because the oil wells, no longer being drawn down, will recharge their pressure. There is also the varying view of the age of the earth: https://answersingenesis.org/creationism/young-earth/young-earth-creationist-view-summarized-and-defended/.

Likewise for radioactivity and the nuclear threat. One of the main myths of the Left is that a nuclear war is not survivable, the Dr Strangelove (1964), and On the Beach (1959) thesis.  But, a very good refutation of this is made at http://www.goodnewnuke.com, which tells about nuclear destruction. The good news is that by use of civil defence methods, including bomb shelters, many people can survive nuclear war. A book dealing with this in more detail is Dr Bruce Clayton’s Life After Doomsday (1992), which has all the basics on surviving nukes: https://www.amazon.com/Life-After-Doomsday-Bruce-Clayton/dp/0873641752.
Then there are all the wildlife at Chernobyl who have returned, happy at  play the radioactive way: http://www.telegraph.co.uk/news/2016/04/23/wildlife-returns-to-radioactive-wasteland-of-chernobyl/.
Take that, Greenies!

The Cure for Depression by Mrs Vera West

Stephen S. Ilardi, The Depression Cure: The 6-Step Program to Beat Depression without Drugs, (DaCapo Press, 2009), is a must-read book for anyone suffering from depression.

The fundamental premise of the book is that “human beings were never designed for the poorly nourished, sedentary, indoor, sleep-deprived, socially isolated, frenzied pace of twenty-first-century life.”

The Crash of Testosterone by John Steele

There is something of a broad emerging consensus among the diverse groups and free-wheeling thinkers, going under the umbrella term “Alt Right,” that the key to dealing with the multitude of problems facing us – whether it be the financial/money question, race realities, immigration, feminism, etc. – is that there needs to be strong manly people to seek solutions and to fight for them. But manhood, along with other virtues of our civilisation, has been undermined.

Many see the destruction of manhood in purely socio-political terms, and of course, at a minimum, there is in this, much truth. But, as Roosh, a microbiologist, argues in his article “The Decline in Testosterone is Destroying the Basis of Masculinity,” http://www.rooshv.com/the-decline-in-testosterone-is-destroying-the-basis-of-masculinity, there is probably an underlying biochemical explanation for the rise of leftism and general cuckoldry, or what we may now call, “cuckism.”

Doctors and Race by Paul Walker

The latest big “race” fight is that the Australasian College for Emergency Medicine, has been called “racist” for saying that certain foreign-trained doctors who failed its core exam to become emergency specialists, were under-skilled: http://www.theaustralian.com.au/higher-education/doctors-in-race-claim-lacking-in-key-skills/news-story/f0ac06b310bb063911ff89119d4468cf.

Blood Pressure, Exploding! Pollution Killing Us! by Mrs Vera West

Natural News.com, November 24, 2016, notes that the Western epidemic of high blood pressure, has now spread to the developing world, fuelled by economic globalisation. The number of people with high blood pressure in the world has doubled in the last 40 years and the biggest increases are seen in South Asia and Africa. In 2015 there were 1.1 billion people in the world with high blood pressure, and over half of these were living in East, South East and South Asia China alone had 226 million sufferers.

Air pollution, another product of industrialisation, is killing 5.5 million people worldwide, according to the Global Burden of Disease project (http://www.bbc.com/news/science-environment-35568249). Most of these deaths are in China and India. Liquid and solid particles can cause not only cancer and respiratory problems, but also heart disease. New research also indicates that pollution particles can even penetrate brain tissue, which may be a cause of neurodegenerative disease: http://www.bbc.com/news/science-environement-37276219.
Globalisation, economic growth and industrialisation all come with a cost and are not value neutral, and one cost is global health. Globalisation is killing the planet, and us.

Academic Research is a Dud by Brian Simpson

For some time now a small group of scientists have been raising sophisticated doubts about the soundness of virtually all statistically-based research in the social sciences and medicine, with a now classic paper being John Ioannidis, “Why Most Published Research Findings are False,” PLoS Medicine, 2, (2005).
The problems are many and relate to a misuse and abuse of P-value significance tests to systematic biases arising from small, unrepresentative samples.

Yet another addition to this literature is by A. D. Higginson and M. R. Munafo, “Current Incentives for Scientists Lead to Underpowered Studies with Erroneous Conclusions,” PLoS Biology, November 10, 2016. These scientists attempt to account for the Ioannidis-inspired research, arguing that funding mechanisms reward small studies that are likely to produce false results.
Using an ecological analysis, they show that “fitness,” that is academic success, is produced in this way rather than by careful large studies that take more time and resources.
The problem is not merely academic. About 50 percent of research findings in medical research cannot be replicated in human trials, putting a big question mark over the use of some Big Pharma drugs.

The Incredible, Disappearing Nuclear Waste Dump by Uncle Len Who May Not Glow in the Dark After All

Remember the proposal by the South Australian Labor Premier Jay Weatherill to build a facility for holding the world’s high-level nuclear waste, which would, given Murphy’s Law, ultimately kill us all and make Australia into a radioactive multicult, culturally diverse but radioactively green? Yes, that’s what your nightmares have been about. That is the real reason why you, like Uncle Len, have had insomnia, high blood pressure and an aching back.
Now our premier is going for a referendum for the doomsday dump (The Australian, November 15, 2016, p. 7) that is sure to kill us all, did I say that, for a few dollars. The Greens and Aboriginal groups have been strongly opposing this, all in accordance with my grand plan. And opposition leader Steven Marshall has withdrawn his support and opposed the project: God bless you Stevey!

Oh, the referendum requires bipartisanship because Jay thinks there is no point having a referendum if the “No” side is likely to win. That’s the spirit!
So you in the east and west, be thankful that our cash-strapped pollies may not unleash a nuclear holocaust on you. Behind the scenes Uncle Len letter-boxed daily and has even neglected his writing, disappointing his many thousands of fans, who looked forward to his zany style of dark humour, or near-humour, to wash down each week, the bitter news of politics in the age of Spenglerian decadence. What’s that Uncle Len, a literary allusion? How long before you burst into song? Well, talent I may not have, but at least I don’t glow in the dark. For now, at least.

The Metaphysical Plague of Dementia and Alzheimer’s Disease by Mrs Vera West

Heart disease was once the leading cause of death in America, and still is in Australia (considering all heart disease-related conditions). But as reported by Natural News.com, November 20, 2016, surprisingly enough, dementia and Alzheimer’s disease are now the world’s leading cause of death, and are so in both America and Britain. In Britain death from dementia and Alzheimer’s accounted for 11.6 percent of all recorded deaths.

This radical increase cannot be due to the ageing of populations, because heart disease is also closely linked to ageing and in many countries the death-rate for heart disease has declined. Doctors are now certainly better at diagnosing dementia and this would have impacted upon the recent morality statistics.

Trade Merges into Organised Crime by James Reed

One of the inconvenient truths that the “let’s make Australia part of Asia” mania do not openly discuss, is the penetration of Asian organised crime into Australia. A recent article, “China Deals 'Launder Drug-Trade Billions,’” The Australian, November 23, 2016, p. 7, quotes the NSW Crime Commission, in stating that trade deals with China are being used as cover for multi-billion-dollar money laundering, from drug profits.

The NSW Crime Commission said that the over 600 major crime figures are “beyond its reach.” Its law-enforcement efforts have been ineffective in dealing with the problem of the masses of drugs coming into Australia.
The problem now is that Australia, in becoming part of Asia, has also absorbed the Asian crime networks as well. These, no doubt, deeply penetrate into the heart of government, as probably older mafia networks did, and still do.  At the deepest level, government, finance and crime all connect up in the Two Towers.

Should We Celebrate Carbon Dioxide? Written By: Patrick Moore, PhD, Global Warming Policy Foundation October 30, 2015

Ref: https://www.technocracy.news/index.php/2015/10/30/former-president-of-greenpeace-scientifically-rips-climate-change-to-shreds/
The following is a lecture delivered by Patrick Moore, formerly President of Greenpeace Int’l, to the Institution of Mechanical Engineers in London. He is a vocal critic of faulty science that supports climate-change caused by humans. Since he was a legend in the eco-movement, his current assessment is credible and authoritative.

Should We Celebrate Carbon Dioxide?

My Lords and Ladies, Ladies and Gentlemen.
Thank you for the opportunity to set out my views on climate change. As I have stated publicly on many occasions, there is no definitive scientific proof, through real-world observation, that carbon dioxide is responsible for any of the slight warming of the global climate that has occurred during the past 300 years, since the peak of the Little Ice Age. If there were such a proof through testing and replication it would have been written down for all to see.

In the Bad Language Camp: Can Leftoids Please Comment? by Peter West

The hypocrisy of the political and chattering class never ceases to amaze me. We have seen the spectacle of male politicians and journalists falling over themselves to condemn Trump’s language and raise themselves to ever-higher moral heights. Yet, while we cannot name names here because of defamation, you can surf the net and acquire much dirt on many leading names. It is well known in Canberra that high class call girls regularly serve the political class. None of this dirt gets out because both sides do it, but from time-to-time a pollie gets careless with payments and gets exposed.

A number of leading pollies in the past were notorious sex addicts and one is said to have died in the act. From a Christian perspective this is sinful and appalling, but is how the world is. What is more appalling though is the sham high morality of pretending to be offended by the “P” word, while Hillary Clinton’s latest Wikileaks shows that she is lying about almost everything.

First heartbeat of babies as early as 16 days after conception - study

Ref: https://www.rt.com/uk/362556-first-heartbeat-of-babies/
The first tick of a baby’s heart happens as early as 16 days after conception, according to a new study by researchers at the University of Oxford. Initially, analysts said the heart muscle contracted to beat eight days after conception in mice, roughly equating to 21 days in a human pregnancy. However, Oxford University teamed up with the British Heart Foundation (BHF) and found that the first heartbeat in babies happens much sooner. 

BHF Professor Paul Riley, a leading researcher at the university said the team wanted to better understand how the heart develops.

“We are trying to better understand how the heart develops and ultimately what causes the heart defects that develop in the womb before birth and to extrapolate to adult heart repair,” Riley said.
“By finding out how the heart first starts to beat and how problems can arise in heart development, we are one step closer to being able to prevent heart conditions from arising during pregnancy,” he added.
Professor Riley also said that his team hoped the findings could bring them closer to being able to mend damaged muscle following a heart attack.
“We also hope that this new research will help us to learn how the beating of new heart muscle cells might be triggered in replaced muscle after a heart attack,” he said.

Killing Me Softly with Chemo by Mrs Vera West

A study by M. Wallington (et al.), “30-Day Mortality after Systemic Anticancer Treatment for Breast and Lung Cancer in England: A Population-Based, Observational Study,” The Lancet Oncology, September 2016, presented some alarming news about chemotherapy.

Chemotherapy drugs have killed up to 50 percent of patients in some hospitals, within 30 days of starting chemotherapy. They died from the drugs rather than the cancer. It was found that 8.4 percent of patients with lung cancer and 2.4 percent of breast cancer patients died within 30 days of starting chemotherapy, but some hospitals had death rates of up to 50.9 percent. These hospitals have been asked by Public Health England (PHE) to review their practices, given that chemo drugs are “powerful medications(s) with significant side effects,” and that there are “potentially life threatening downsides to chemotherapy”: http://www.telegraph.co.uk/science/2016/08/30/chemotherapy-warning-as-hundreds-die-from-cancer-fighting-drugs/.
