Letter to The Editor - The PM also needs to back the country away from unnecessary and potentially harmful referendums

To The Australian        Maurice Newman sagely notes that Scott Morrison must "pursue a course more consistent with traditional Liberal Party values" ("Political elites face the wrath", 10/6). He and his colleagues also need a carefully thought out strategy to gradually shift the cultural atmosphere of Australia more to the conservative and traditional side. That is no mean challenge. Newman touches on many of the policies needed: rejection of the "human-induced global warming" scam; protection of Australia's national sovereignty and political independence from the selfish ambitions of elites favouring global governance; and firm protection of our borders with a realistic immigration policy. The PM also needs to back the country away from unnecessary and potentially harmful referendums on a republic and constitutional indigenous recognition.  Most importantly of all, he needs to display humility and graciousness in admitting that he has been wrong to express support for the latter of these two anti-traditional campaigns.

China Draws a Line in the Water By James Reed

     China war is inevitable since China claims Taiwan and the South China Sea. I say let China have it, it is not worth World War III over, but, the US will fight them, so hell, this is how it is going to end. I intend to enjoy whatever alcohol my pension will allow me to purchase and consume:

“China's defense minister warned Sunday that its military will "resolutely take action" to defend Beijing's claims over self-ruled Taiwan and disputed South China Sea waters. Speaking at an annual security conference in Singapore, Gen. Wei Fenghe did not direct the threat at the U.S. but loaded his address with criticism of activities by Washington, including support for Taiwan and leading so-called "freedom of navigation" operations in the strategic waterways that China virtually claims as its own. Wei said the People's Liberation Army would not "yield a single inch of the country's sacred land." China's ruling Communist Party maintains that Taiwan is part of China, and has used increasingly aggressive rhetoric toward the democratic island, which split from the mainland amid a civil war 70 years ago. It opposes Taiwan's independence and formally says it seeks a "peaceful reunification" while refusing to rule out the use of force if necessary to achieve that goal. "The PLA has no intention to cause anybody trouble but it is not afraid to face up to troubles. Should anybody risk crossing the bottom line, the PLA will resolutely take action and defeat all enemies," Wei said. Relations between Beijing and Taipei have deteriorated since Taiwan elected a pro-independence president, Tsai Ing-wen, in 2016. China has since increased diplomatic pressure, cut off its contacts with the island's government and discouraged travel there by Chinese tourists.

Is the Individual Obsolete? Wish I could Read the Article! By James Reed

     Ah! Journalism with no money! How to do it with less money than the average high school student, those I used to teach? The Washington Post has an article “Is the Individual Obsolete?’ by George Wills, which looks like something we should response to, but it is behind a paywall. How can we guess what it says, having no money to access any material? Well, think like a post-apocalyptic survivor. What can be salvaged from the wreck of the internet, which by the way, a large chunk of the Google part went offline a few days ago, like space junk, for some reason that I have not yet found:
  https://www.theregister.co.uk/2013/08/17/google_outage/

“You can all relax now. The near-unprecedented outage that seemingly affected all of Google's services for a brief time on Friday is over. The event began at approximately 4:37pm Pacific Time and lasted between one and five minutes, according to the Google Apps Dashboard. All of the Google Apps services reported being back online by 4:48pm. The incident apparently blacked out every service Mountain View has to offer simultaneously, from Google Search to Gmail, YouTube, Google Drive, and beyond. Big deal, right? Everyone has technical difficulties every once in a while. It goes with the territory. But then, not everyone is Google. According to web analytics firm GoSquared, worldwide internet traffic dipped by a stunning 40 per centduring the brief minutes that the Chocolate Factory's services were offline.”

Letter to The Editor - Rudd apology for the alleged "stolen generations" was based on a misleading report

To The Age    If Scott Morrison is to become "a prime minister of real consequence" who "rises to the challenges of his time" ("Will Morrison take his moment?", 8/6), then, as regards constitutional indigenous recognition, he will do the opposite of what Peter Hartcher advocates: he will not have a bar of it. He will know that the Rudd apology for the alleged "stolen generations" was based on a misleading report (Bringing them home) and did not and does not have the approval of huge numbers of Australians. He will know that efforts to close or lessen "the gap" can be carried out perfectly well without any unjust and dangerous tampering with our Constitution. Nor will he be foxed by sob stories about a "lack of reconciliation".   It will require great courage from the PM to block this nefarious campaign. Let us hope, for the sake of our national welfare, that he has it.

Your Choice in HealthCare

Dear ………,

     As many of you may be aware the Medical Board of Australia (MBA) has commenced a public consultation on new guidelines for ‘complementary and unconventional medicine and emerging treatments’. There is a concern that if adopted, a two-tiered system may arise that threatens Integrative Medicine (IM) and unreasonably targets practitioners. The Medical Board of Australia have made assurances that their measures are to root out unsafe practices and are not intended to target Integrative Medicine. In any case, the IM community are coming together to challenge the adoption of these guidelines as there will be worrisome implications if passed.

Cast Iron Proof of False News from the Elites and Open Discrimination Against Whites By John Steele

     Got you! Here is old Obama openly lying about US gun laws to members of his congregation. It does not matter that he lies, because they will believe anything the system tells them to believe.  Talk about post truth!
  https://www.zerohedge.com/news/2019-05-31/obama-blatantly-lies-about-us-gun-laws-then-gets-awkward-applause

“After collecting a sweet $600,000 for a single speech in Colombia, former President Barack Obama took to the stage at the São Paulo Expo in Brazil, where he lied to the audience about US gun laws. "Some of you may be aware our gun laws in the United States don’t make much sense. Anybody can buy any weapon any time," said Obama - to which the audience erupted in applause, seemingly over Americans' access to guns. This is of course false, as not "anybody" can buy a gun "any time." Federal law restricts the purchase of a handgun through a licensed dealer to those who are 18 or older (18 in most states for long guns), while convicted felons can't legally own firearms at all. After the audience died down, Obama continued: "...without much if any regulation, they can buy it over the Internet, they can buy machine guns." And while guns can be purchased over the internet, Obama lied again when he claimed that there's 'little regulation' to buy online - when in fact a Federal Firearms License (FFL) holder must be involved in interstate sales, and that people can buy "machine guns."

The Mind of the Invaders By Charles Taylor

     This one is worth a careful read. Trump says that he will impose tariffs on Mexico until they do they right thing about their borders. Mexico tells the US that the US only exists to be invaded, something that would be grounds for war in a world with some sanity, a direct challenge to national sovereignty:
  https://www.breitbart.com/politics/2019/05/31/mexicos-president-donald-trump-america-immigrants/

“Poor people have a right to migrate to the United States, and migrants should not be stopped by force, according to a letter from Mexico’s president to U.S. President Donald Trump. President López Obrador’s May 30 letter, provided by the Wall Street Journal, claimed a migrant’s “right for justice,” saying: President Trump. Social problems are not resolved by taxes or coercive measures. How do you transform the country of fraternity for the world’s migrants into a ghetto, a closed space, where migrants are stigmatized, mistreated, persecuted, expelled and the right for justice is canceled to those who tirelessly seek to live free of misery? The letter also suggested that poor Mexicans have a right to migrate into the United States: “It is worth remembering that, within a short period of time, Mexicans will not need to migrate into the United States and that migration will become optional, not compulsory.”

How Did it Come To This, Germany? By Richard Miller

     Consider this terrible situation:
  https://nypost.com/2019/05/28/germany-new-old-shame/

“I can’t tell Jews to wear the kippah everywhere all the time in Germany,” announced that country’s commissioner for anti-Semitism, Felix Klein, on Saturday. Depressing advice, but honest: Wearing a yarmulke makes you a target for violent haters, and the country has seen a rise in out-of-nowhere assaults on Jews. Interior Ministry stats show anti-Semitic offenses up by nearly 20%. Klein’s superiors, including Chancellor Angela Merkel, spent days walking back the statement, but they had to admit that Germany has a growing problem — a wrenching development for a nation that has spent decades dealing with its guilt in the Holocaust. Awkwardly for Merkel, the source of the rise in attacks on Jews looks to be the huge wave of Muslim migrants that she allowed in starting in 2015, who carried hate with them from their homelands. Klein’s honesty forced the rest of the government to step up, at least verbally, with Merkel’s spokesman vowing to “ensure that anybody can move around securely with a skullcap in any place of our country.” Pray they make good on that promise.”

Good News, Good News: The Triumph of Le Pen et al. By Richard Miller

     This news is getting a bit dated now, but it is still good enough for we nationalists to gloat over, that Le Pen has crushed globalist mass immigrationist Macron in the EU election exit poll:
  https://www.breitbart.com/europe/2019/05/26/le-pen-triumphs-over-macron-in-eu-election-exit-poll/

“Populist leader Marine Le Pen and her Rassemblement National (National Rally, or RN) have triumphed over sitting French president Emmanuel Macron in the European Parliament elections, according to exit polls. Ms Le Pen declared victory following exit polls showing the RN winning around 24 per cent of the vote, compared to Macron’s La Republique En Marche! (LREM) who, according to projections, has come in second with 22.5 percent of the vote, French newspaper Le Figaro reports. Declaring victory, the RN leader said, “The trust we have been given by the French in designating us as the first party in France but especially as that of the future alternation is an immense honour.” She went on to call for Macron to dissolve the French parliament, saying “it is up to the President of the Republic to draw the consequences” and calling for fresh elections, stating that Macron put his own presidency on the line in the vote.”

Why Do They see Abortion as Sacred? By Mrs Vera West

     Hollywood is big on abortions. Why I am surprised that they have not released a movie entitled: The Abortion Movie? Why not? After all, segments of the creature from the lost lagoon are willing to boycott entire states, incredibly:
  https://www.breitbart.com/entertainment/2019/05/30/warnermedia-parent-of-cnn-hbo-tnt-threatens-to-boycott-georgia-over-abortion-law/
  https://www.breitbart.com/politics/2019/05/30/kirsten-gillibrand-studios-should-stay-and-invest-in-elections-locally-to-protest-abortion-bans/

“WarnerMedia, the parent company of CNN, HBO, and TNT, among many other television networks, released a statement Thursday threatening to “reconsider Georgia as the home to any new productions” if the state’s new law restricting abortions is held up in court. “We operate and produce work in many states and within several countries at any given time and while that doesn’t mean we agree with every position taken by a state or a country and their leaders, we do respect due process,” WarnerMedia said in a statement. “We will watch the situation closely and if the new law holds we will reconsider Georgia as the home to any new productions. As is always the case, we will work closely with our production partners and talent to determine how and where to shoot any given project.”

Trump on Immigration: Did He Read My Letter? By Charles Taylor

     Many a letter I have written saying that the US border crisis can be solved by Mexico actually doing something, and that economic sanctions need to be slapped on them. Trump is threatening this now, it sounds good, but whether this will happen or not remains to be seen.
  https://www.breitbart.com/politics/2019/05/30/donald-trump-declares-he-will-increase-tariffs-on-mexico-until-illegal-immigration-remedied/

“President Donald Trump made good on a promised immigration announcement Thursday night, proclaiming he will increase tariffs on Mexico. “On June 10th, the United States will impose a 5% Tariff on all goods coming into our Country from Mexico, until such time as illegal migrants coming through Mexico, and into our Country, STOP,” President Trump wrote in a Thursday night tweet.

World In Flames; War Everywhere! By James reed

     If I had a backyard I probably would be digging a fox hole just like I did as a kid during the Cuban missile crisis. According to Trump’s boy Pence, soon war is going to be everywhere, and America is going to get down and show its usual apocalyptic dance moves and grooves:

“Vice President Mike Pence warned West Point graduates on Saturday to expect combat at some point during their service in a “dangerous” world. In a commencement speech, he said grads might have to fight against forces aligned with North Korea or China, or in Afghanistan or Iraq, as well as possibly face an unidentified foe in “this hemisphere.” “It is a virtual certainty that you will fight on a battlefield for America at some point in your life. You will lead soldiers in combat. It will happen,” Pence said. “Some of you will join the fight against radical Islamic terrorists in Afghanistan and Iraq. Some of you will join the fight on the Korean Peninsula and in the Indo-Pacific where North Korea continues to threaten the peace, and an increasingly militarized China challenges our presence in the region.” He warned: “Some of you may even be called upon to serve in this hemisphere ... When that day comes, I know you will move to the sound of the guns.”

Holes in Trump’s Wall and His Head By Charles Taylor

     As a former Trump supporter, one of the first to get off the Trump train and write about Trump’s treason, I have paid attention to so-called progress on the magical Great Wall of America. Trump’s regime has built 1.7 miles of his fence in two years, while others working on raising money from chook raffles and the like have done almost as much and at the end of the day, will probably get more before civil war tears everything apart:
  https://edition.cnn.com/2019/05/27/politics/private-border-wall-gofundme/index.html

“A group that raised millions of dollars in a GoFundMe campaign says it has broken ground on a project to build its own stretch of border wall on private property. We Build the Wall, a group founded by a triple amputee Air Force veteran, said in a series of social media posts Monday it had started construction on private property in New Mexico. The announcement comes months after the group began its GoFundMe campaign to raise private donations for a border wall, and days after a federal judge blocked President Donald Trump from tapping into billions in Defense Department funds for his administration's wall construction efforts.

Just a Quiet Question to Our Gentle Friends on the Left By James Reed

     I saw all the signs this week comparing the incoming PM to Hitler, and that he should go to hell. I did not know that these atheists had suddenly got some faith! But, the point of my diatribe is why these champions of social justice are not out on the streets protesting the concentration camps in China, our trading partner? I mean, even the bad guys around evil orange man in the US are doing something.
  https://www.breitbart.com/asia/2019/05/23/senate-moves-bill-forward-to-urge-sanctioning-china-for-muslim-concentration-camps/

“The Senate Foreign Relations Committee passed a bill Tuesday that, if enacted, would call for sanctions on the Chinese government and select individuals over the mass imprisonment of potentially millions of Muslims in concentration camps in eastern Xinjiang province. The Chinese Communist Party (CCP), under Xi Jinping, has building hundreds of “re-eduation centers” that it claims are “vocational training” facilities for Uighurs, Kazakhs, Kyrgyz, and other minorities. Those who have survived them call them “concentration camps” – locations where they are taken by force to learn Mandarin, renouncing their Muslim faith, memorize communist propaganda songs, and engage in slave labor.”

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.

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.”

Exit the Traitors By Richard Miller

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.”
