US Preparing for China War By James Reed

     Michael Klare has published a number of books dealing with the issue of resource depletion, and how this pushes the powers in a scramble for what is left, inevitably leading to war. Now I know many believe that there is no shortage of anything (especially bs), but just humour us here. In the end we will know, if anything remains after the next great conflict, which we all know will happen. The quote is long, but good, so pour yourself a nice refreshing  cuppa, butter up a hot scone and enjoy:

“Hawks in the White House, led by National Security Advisor John Bolton, see a war aimed at eliminating Iran’s clerical leadership as a potentially big win for Washington. Many top officials in the U.S. military, however, see the matter quite differently -- as potentially a giant step backward into exactly the kind of low-tech ground war they’ve been unsuccessfully enmeshed in across the Greater Middle East and northern Africa for years and would prefer to leave behind. Make no mistake: if President Trump ordered the U.S. military to attack Iran, it would do so and, were that to happen, there can be little doubt about the ultimate negative outcome for Iran. Its moth-eaten military machine is simply no match for the American one. Almost 18 years after Washington’s war on terror was launched, however, there can be little doubt that any U.S. assault on Iran would also stir up yet more chaos across the region, displace more people, create more refugees, and leave behind more dead civilians, more ruined cities and infrastructure, and more angry souls ready to join the next terror group to pop up. It would surely lead to another quagmire set of ongoing conflicts for American soldiers. Think: Iraq and Afghanistan, exactly the type of no-win scenarios that many top Pentagon officials now seek to flee. But don’t chalk such feelings up only to a reluctance to get bogged down in yet one more war-on-terror quagmire. These days, the Pentagon is also increasingly obsessed with preparations for another type of war in another locale entirely: a high-intensity conflict with China, possibly in the South China Sea.

Another Day; More Big Tech Bans By Chris Knight

     Now one cannot discuss the immigration status of people, illegal immigrants, without facing Big Tech bans:
  https://www.naturalnews.com/2019-06-08-youtubes-new-censorship-purge-bans-videos-that-talk-about-illegal-immigrants.html

     The next site to fall to the Big Tech bans is Natural News.com, being permanently banned by Facebook. Mike Adams has never done anything even mildly racist, and exactly the opposite in fact, openly championing the idea that there is a genocidal policy against Blacks, which could well be true too. But, he has taken on the anarcho-tyrannical system, especially regarding health, so he must go:

But, That’s Tribalism! By James Reed

     There we go, the great English comic John Cleese saying that London is not English enough! John, you have been too busy making people laugh to pay attention to what has been happening, as London is now majority non-white, so your England is gone, gone, gone. Why Somali parents are sending their kiddies home because of the knife violence, so England as you knew it is at the zombie apocalypse level:
  https://news.yahoo.com/john-cleese-slams-london-for-not-being-english-enough-092406316.html
  https://www.dailymail.co.uk/news/article-7077579/Somali-parents-London-send-children-Africa-knife-crime-epidemic.html

“Hundreds of British parents are sending their teenage children back to East Africa to avoid the knife crime epidemic that has struck London and seen 51 murders this year. And the teenagers say they feel safer there, despite the Foreign and Commonwealth office advising against all travel to Somalia and warning against the threat of terrorism across Kenya. One Somali mother, Amina, was interviewed on the BBC's Victoria Derbyshire programme and told the harrowing story of how her 15-year-old son was stabbed four times, just 17 days after he returned from a year-long stay in their homeland. She said: 'They damaged his bladder, his kidneys, his liver. He's got permanent damage. 'He was safer there [in Somaliland] than he was here, 100 per cent more safe than in London.' Last year the Foreign Office named Somalia the 13th most dangerous country in the world due to its constant threat of terrorism. And yet two in five Somalian families in London are sending their children home to avoid the knife crime epidemic hitting the capital, according to the mayor of Islington."

Surprise! Surprise! Collapse! By Bruce Bennett

     I was reading a philosophical piece about Oswald Spengler (1880-1936) and historical causality, or lack of it, not understanding much of it, and was going to move on, until I read this passage quoted below, and the lights were suddenly turned on:
  https://www.counter-currents.com/2019/06/spengler-on-causation/#more-93938

“The “official” reason given for the collapse of the Soviet Union is that President Reagan’s arms build-up led to a competitive arms race that bankrupted the Soviet Union. That is pure hogwash. North Korea has assembled a nuclear program with an economy just a small fraction of that of the former Soviet Union and with a far greater power differential than that which existed between NATO and the Warsaw Pact. The real reason for the collapse of the Soviet Union was a collective loss of will, a loss that has yet to affect North Korea. But how does one go about explaining a nation’s loss of will? There are too many variables, too many moving parts, for a cause-and-effect explanation to be satisfactory. Spengler’s great insight is that nations, like individual human beings, are organic entities, and all organic entities have a life span. One can eat healthy foods, exercise regularly, avoid drugs, tobacco, and excessive alcohol consumption, and yet one will inevitably die. This is the destiny of all individuals, and according to Spengler, the destiny of all cultures and civilizations. We on the dissident Right have the advantage that we are aware that the West has lost its will to survive, that Western Civilization is slowly committing suicide.

Mirror, Mirror on the Wall Who are the Dumbest of All? By Peter West

     Conservatives typically ignore issues of genetic quality when rattling on about “we the people,” those who will arise and defeat the Dark Lords of Mordor, because the good guys always win, don’t they? But, an intriguing article at the ever heretical The Burning Platform.com by Donald Jeffries, hoses this idea down with the cold waters of reason. But before outlining this, I found the concept of “the burning platform” equally as insightful, pregnant with meaning:
  https://www.managementcentre.co.uk/create-a-burning-platform/

“Burning platforms are very powerful drivers of strategic change. They are what happens when:
•    There is a real and immediate crisis
•    There is a limited number of difficult and challenging choices
•    Each of the choices is irreversible
•    Each choice has a high risk of failure

Here is Where This is all Going; Dismantling White Culture, Rather Quickly By Peter West

     The ever-delightful Ann Coulter, has an eye-opening piece about how far things are spiralling down in the de-education system, with now the rejection of standards of evidence as “racist”!
  https://www.takimag.com/article/the-whole-folk-tale-and-nothing-but-the-folk-tale/

“New York City public school teachers recently revealed that they have been instructed to reject “objectivity,” “written documentation” and “perfectionism” by Schools Chancellor Richard Carranza, as part of his effort to “dismantle racism.” Carranza identified these values as tools of the “white-supremacy culture.” Our cultural overlords are way ahead of Carranza. With lightning speed, we’ve abandoned old, hidebound, Anglo-Saxon facts-and-evidence standards in deference to new, fresh African folk tale standards. (According to J. Bekunuru Kubayanda, writing in the Afro-Hispanic Review, even Latin America and the Caribbean got their oral history traditions from Africa.) Thus, for example, Gen. Robert E. Lee has been re-invented as a white genocidal lunatic. Meanwhile, actual tape-recorded evidence of the Rev. Martin Luther King Jr. engaging in sex orgies will not put a dent in his hero status.

How to Create a Country with no Heart? - Stack and Pack the Coast By Viv Forbes

     What happened to Australia’s once-bipartisan policies favouring decentralisation? Why is every proposal to develop an outback mine, dam, irrigation scheme or a real power station now labelled “controversial” by the ABC and opposed by the ALP/Greens? This coastal-city focus and the hostility to new outback industry (except for wind/solar toys) has surely reached its zenith with the recent state budget for Queensland. The population of coastal and metropolitan Queensland is surging with baby-boom retirees, welfare recipients, grey nomads, tourists, overseas students, migrants and winter refugees. But the outback is dying with lagging industry and many aging farmers retiring to the coast. We are creating a country with no heart. The growing urban and seaside population needs power, water and food.

     However two critical power-water-food infrastructure projects that have been on the drawing boards for decades did not even rate a mention in the state budget – an expansion of coal-fired power at Kogan Creek and a water supply dam at Nathan Gorge. The current policy of all major parties is cluttering the countryside with piddling subsidised intermittent power producers like solar panels and wind turbines plus their expensive network of roads and transmission lines. This is inflating electricity prices, and future generations will see this bi-partisan energy policy as a disastrous blunder. It is also a mistake to encourage or subsidise private electricity cartels and put politicians, not engineers, in charge of power generation.

Letter to The Editor - Sheer political power of the "Remain" camp

To The Age        You are right that any new Conservative leader in the UK will need to show good judgment and diplomatic skill in seeking a viable path forward for the nation ("Johnson as PM not a comforting thought", 17/6). However, the "great complexities" of achieving constitutional severance of Britain from the EU are not beyond the power of Boris Johnson or any other prime minister and his team. What may prove more intractable is the sheer political power of the "Remain" camp who naturally do not feel that "a narrowly won referendum" de-authorises their resistance. The British people as a whole need to bring goodwill, integrity, magnanimity and intelligent compromise to bear in this fraught situation. Let us hope they find a fruitful way forward.

Letter to The Editor - The nation needs a new Dryden

To The Australian          Full marks again to Greg Sheridan, this time for his demolition of the "politically correct" tomfoolery going on in Britain and especially London ("Politically correct London becoming more nutty by the day", 17/6). The nation needs a new Dryden, Pope or Swift to adequately ridicule "the sheer psycho-silliness of the whole business." Here is a sample of what's needed.

     The public scene presents a dismal sight
     As pseudo-victims moan about their plight.
     Rather hear donkeys bray or monkeys scream
     Than suffer London's current bedlam dream!

No Criticism of … We are British You Know! By Richard Miller

     It is only natural that at the end of the West things will go this way, as the body social goes mad through a kind of mad liberalism disease, banning everything in sight and making laws against traditional Britain:
  https://www.gatestoneinstitute.org/14351/britain-blasphemy-law

The long-running dispute revolves — most recently — around an effort by the All-Party Parliamentary Group (APPG) on British Muslims, a cross-party formation of around two-dozen MPs in the British Parliament, to institutionalize the definition of Islamophobia in racial rather than religious terms.

Letter the The Editor - Concerning a Bill of Rights

     It doesn’t take much of an issue to generate calls for a Bill of Rights. People believe it will enhance their freedoms. In fact a Bill of Rights can restrict freedoms because it actually prescribes all rights available.  Obviously then, any ‘right’ not mentioned is forbidden. Our system provides us maximum freedom where we have the lawful right to do anything except the minimum number of things which are forbidden. Not having a Bill of rights can be likened to our road rules where we are free to drive wherever we choose provided we obey any road rules like speed limits and “No Entry” signs.

Will US Tariffs Come Our Way? By Chris Knight

     Is all of this American coverage really necessary …  I mean, how does this affect us here in little old OZ? Consider this, that Australia has dodged a US tariff bullet for the time. But in the future, who knows, Trump is insane, as the Left rightly says:
  https://www.nytimes.com/2019/06/02/business/trump-australia-tariffs.html

“The Trump administration considered imposing tariffs on imports from Australia last week, but decided against the move amid fierce opposition from military officials and the State Department, according to several people familiar with the discussions. Some of President Trump’s top trade advisers had urged the tariffs as a response to a surge of Australian aluminum flowing onto the American market over the past year. But officials at the Defense and State Departments told Mr. Trump the move would alienate a top ally and could come at significant cost to the United States. The administration ultimately agreed not to take any action, at least temporarily. The measure would open yet another front in a global trade war that has pitted the United States against allies like Canada, Mexico, Europe and Japan, and deepened divisions with countries like China. It would also be the end of a reprieve for the only country to be fully exempted from the start from steel and aluminum tariffs that Mr. Trump imposed last year.

Letter to The Editor - For some months you appear to have censored out of existence that large body of Australians firmly opposed to any form of "indigenous constitutional recognition"

To The Age         You are perfectly entitled to defend "the principle of a free media" ("Media must report without fear", 6/6); and you are right to assert further that a free media has "a public-interest duty to report truthfully, responsibly and without fear or favour." Alas, as one who has read your paper regularly for over sixty years, I have to point out that you do not always live up to that ideal. Two areas of discourse at once come to mind. For some months you appear to have censored out of existence that large body of Australians firmly opposed to any form of "indigenous constitutional recognition" or treaty making with indigenous Australians. The other area is responsible right-wing culture, as manifested both in Australia and overseas. There is a yawning gap in your reporting and commentary. This greatly hinders the conservative cause in our nation. Your progressivist lens has been too narrow.
Yours sincerely,

Even New Levels of Big Tech Terror By Chris Knight

     This is getting complicated and journalists with heaps of work naturally look for a quick and easy summary. Here is the best beast I could find:
  https://www.breitbart.com/tech/2019/06/02/daily-beast-says-facebook-helped-them-dox-trump-supporter/

The Daily Beast recently doxed a black forklift driver and reported Trump supporter for the alleged high crime of creating a parody video of Democrat speaker of the house Nancy Pelosi. But there’s more to the story — it appears Facebook may have helped the left-wing journalists identify him. The Daily Beast identified the video creator as Shawn Brooks, whom they described as a forklift driver and Trump supporter from the Bronx. A Twitter account claiming to be Brooks disputed key details of the story, claiming he is not a Trump supporter, did not create the parody video, and does not live in the Bronx. By doxing Brooks, The Daily Beast followed the example of CNN, which threatened to unmask an anonymous Trump supporter over a parody video, forcing to him apologize in exchange for not revealing his identity. The scandal caused “CNNBlackmail” to trend on Twitter. But there’s another aspect to the Daily Beast story which has major implications for the privacy of Facebook users — according to The Daily Beast reporter himself, Facebook gave him information on Brooks’ activity on the platform.

Terminator Feminised and Terminated! By John Steele, Man of Steel

     Granny where did you get that rocket launcher? That turn of phrase came to mind when seeing by accident the latest clip of the forthcoming Terminator: Dark Fate movie. This franchise built upon the original “I’ll be back” movie (1984) with classic Arnie Schwarzensplatter, before he became a Dumocrat climate doomster.
  https://www.youtube.com/watch?time_continue=1&v=jCyEX6u-Yhs

     Hollywood is now churning out social justice warrior movies, where old male action figures are replaced by girl power feminists of all races. Good for them. White males simply do not need to waste good money on this garbage, and would be better off putting the money spent paying to be kicked in the gonads, towards manly activities such as red meat, hard liquor, guns, swords, bowie knives, battle axes, combat machetes, power tools, and sheds to build mancaves to keep all of this stuff in. Who needs movies anyway? Real men like me star in their own adventure movie, every day. You should too.

Fake Families, Papers, Anything Goes By Chris Knight

     There are more illegals crashing through the US system than ever before in US history, and Trump, while talking tough has done nothing to stop them. As Commander-in-chief of the Armed forces, he could stop fighting wars for those who own him for just a moment and secure the US borders using soldiers. Ignore the courts, do what China would do, for they are the new fountain of wisdom:
  https://www.theepochtimes.com/fake-families-fake-papers-are-rampant-at-border_2929794.html
  https://www.breitbart.com/politics/2019/05/24/dhs-100-border-crossers-with-children-being-released-into-u-s-given-work-permits/

     Instead, Central America is emptying as whole towns flock to the border to come do what the president of Mexico said they should, enjoy the benefits of America. That is, millions of migrants in a chain of migration that simply makes North America in to South America. Are the Dumocrats and the rich business elites who profit from cheap labour ready for what is coming, or are they so insane that they do not care, or cannot think? Both, perhaps.

Bob the Butcher’s Top Pick for British PM By Bob the Butcher

     Gidday, Bob the Butcher here to talk about politics, and what a prime cut of meat that is! Here, let me wipe the grease off of my hands, onto my ever-clean blue and white striped apron so that my plump fingers do not slip too badly from the key board. There, all good and ready to go. So, who will be the top piece of pork to run the animal farm of the UK you ask? A good question, and something a butcher can answer. Much like house training pets, there is a head start if the potential PM is already schooled up in the way things go nowadays:
  https://www.breitbart.com/europe/2019/05/26/watch-hunt-stands-to-attention-for-islamic-call-to-prayer-at-foreign-office/

“Tory leadership contender and Foreign and Commonwealth Secretary Jeremy Hunt stood to attention for the Islamic call to prayer at a Ramadan feast in Whitehall on May 23rd. The Remain voter, who will become Prime Minister if he wins to contest to succeed Theresa May as Conservative Party leader, stood for the call to prayer at an Iftar — a sunset feast at which Muslims break their Ramadan fasts — alongside junior minister Tariq Ahmad, also known as the Lord Ahmad of Wimbledon. “Proud to co-host an Iftar [at the Foreign Office] with [Tariq Ahmad],” the Foreign Secretary posted on Twitter. “Britain’s Muslim communities make an invaluable contribution to our national life. Ramadan Mubarak to those celebrating in the UK and around the world.”

The Internet Kill Switch, Yeah Baby! By Brian Simpson

     What a glorious thing it was for the internet to take a huge kick in the guts and go to the ground, rolling in pain. Sure, it got back up to fight the next round, but there is hope that it could all just die one day, leaving us with glorious chaos for a while, but then something we have not had for a long time, peace.  Here is good old Mike Adams giving his end times like take on all of this, which I always enjoy being in the cranky winter of my life, not made better by arthritis in my lower back that kills me sitting typing for hours, because I am too dumb to get up and stretch, but I digress:
  https://www.naturalnews.com/2019-06-02-google-youtube-twitter-facebook-outages-trump-big-tech-censorship.html

“It is no coincidence that two days after the Trump administration announced a massive DOJ anti-trust investigation into Google, dozens of tech companies have been disrupted via sweeping internet outages that many are calling the “internet kill switch.” Throughout the day today (Sunday), massive outages took down nearly all Google services (Gmail, Google, YouTube, Google Home, Google Hangouts etc.), and hard-hitting glitches hit all the following services …

Letter to The Editor - Such a division is so obviously against the interests of Australians

To The Age        Is it really true that the Aboriginal flag "has united everybody, all over Australia, from all the Aboriginal nations" ("Aboriginal flag ban shocks businesses", 12/6)? That looks like the kind of wild exaggeration that revolutionaries have been indulging in for centuries. Such doubts are only reinforced by Laura Thompson's further statement that the flag "represented a struggle and a resistance movement." Yes, it is clearly an expression of the campaign for Aboriginal separatism and the division of this continent into two nations. Such a division is so obviously against the interests of Australians generally that it is astounding that so many more Australians do not speak out more clearly in favour of indissoluble national unity in this context.

Letter to The Editor - Recognising that, they should bow to the clear majority

To The Australian        The UK Environment Secretary Michael Gove may be right ("Boris brushes off opponent's opening salvo", 12/6) that a hard Brexit approach by Boris Johnson (or whoever wins the leadership of the Conservative Party) will be defeated by a vote of no confidence in the Parliament. He should have added that such a vote would be unethical. While it may be that a majority of MPs in the House of Commons are Remainers, they were not elected to Parliament purely on the Brexit issue, but on many others. Recognising that, they should bow to the clear majority for Leave in the 2016 referendum. To do otherwise will continue the corruption of democracy that is happening in the UK.
