Google Shows its Colours: Red By Chris Knight

     I have noticed that when searching for some politically incorrect article, merely typing the title seldom brings it up on Google. So, I use other search engines, simple. And, here is what Zucky is up to: US election interference, worse than any Russia conspiracy.

“A few days after the 2016 election, at an internal meeting later leaked to Breitbart News, top Google executives, including Sundar Pichai, Sergey Brin, and Kent Walker, lamented President Trump’s victory, comparing Trump voters to “extremists” and discussing their desire to make Trump’s election and the populist movement a “blip” in history. True to their word, four years later, Google is deliberately working to interfere with the reelection of Trump in 2020. There are several ways in which Google is interfering in the 2020 election, but this article will focus primarily on one of them: political search bias. Google Has Been Purging Breitbart Content from Search Results Since the 2016 Election. Search visibility is a key industry measure of how findable a publisher’s content is in Google search. New data shows that Google has suppressed Breitbart’s search visibility by 99.7 percent since 2016. On April 4, 2016, Breitbart ranked in the top ten search positions (i.e., on the first page of Google search results) for 355 key search terms; but now, as of July 20, 2020, Breitbart ranks in the top ten search positions for only one search term. And, on April 4, 2016, Breitbart ranked in the top 100 search positions for 16,820 key search terms; but now, as of July 20, 2020, Breitbart ranks in the top ten search positions for only 55 search terms. Moreover, organic Google search traffic to Breitbart (measured by unique visitors) is down 63 percent when comparing the first half of 2016 with the first half of 2020. The following chart shows the visibility of Breitbart content in the Google search engine since 2011. It shows that Google has nearly eliminated Breitbart content from its search results.”

Temperature Rising: China War Update By James Reed

    We will regret the day “our” so-called government/little Deep State, embarked on the Asianisation and Chinaisation programs. Now war is coming quick, and that is not this near-senile journalist’s opinion either, as far better-quality people than me, like Robert Gottliebsen have things to say on this:

“It’s important to understand just how deep and widespread the global disputes
In Britain, the opposition to China started with the embrace of the US stand on Huawei, which was part of the US drive to win the artificial intelligence/database war. Now British Prime Minister Boris Johnson plans to offer some 3 million Hong Kong citizens with British passports entry into the UK and many of those will come to Australia. China is threatening to abolish the passports. The European Union has been involved in trade talks with China but they have stalled over the issue of subsidisation of state owned Chinese enterprises. Chinese president Xi Jinping had planned to have a summit in Europe in September but that has been postponed. The Chinese Belt and Road strategy is designed to link China and Europe so these trade difficulties go to the heart of China’s strategy. In India are military conflict in the Himalayas has triggered a severe split and India has curbed Chinese mobile and other technologies including the use of TikTok, which has led the US to setting up a fund to invest in Indian technology. Japan, and to a lesser extent South Korea, have had a difficult relationship with China for a long time.

No Christianity Please … We are China! By James Reed

     As China’s power grows, so does its persecution drive. Christians are a good target.

“Chinese communist authorities have ordered poor Christian villagers to remove Christian images from their homes and replace them with portraits of Chairman Mao and President Xi Jinping or risk losing their welfare benefits.
The Chinese Communist Party (CCP) has continued its program of “Sinicization” of religion by channeling religious fervor in the country toward the Party rather than God, the Christian Post reported this weekend.
In May, an official in the eastern province of Shandong raided the home of a local Christian and hung pictures of Mao Zedong and Xi Jinping on the wall in place of Christian images. “These are the greatest gods. If you want to worship somebody, they are the ones,” the official told them. This year, China’s “social credit system” was scheduled to become fully functional, assigning points to each individual based on how much the Communist Party approves of them and using their rating to control their behavior and access to certain benefits.. “There are fears that China’s new ‘social credit system’ – designed to reward good citizenship and punish bad – will be used to discriminate against Christians,” wrote the Catholic charity organization Aid to the Church in Need in a 2019 report. The fears are tied to “cash rewards for those who inform on underground churches and other ‘unofficial’ places of worship,” indicating that the government might also reward the persecution of Christians with high “social credit” scores. According to the religious liberty magazine Bitter Winter, the CCP is now using state welfare benefits as leverage to coerce people into worshiping the Party rather than Jesus. In April, for instance, party officials visited the homes of Christians in Linfen, in the northern province of Shanxi, ordering those who receive welfare payments from the government to remove crosses, Christian symbols, and images in their homes and replace them with portraits of China’s communist leaders. The officials threatened the Christians that non-compliance with the order would result in suspension of their welfare subsidies. “All impoverished households in the town were told to display Mao Zedong images,” a local house church preacher said. “The government is trying to eliminate our belief and wants to become God instead of Jesus.” Officials have often made good on their threats, ruthlessly suspending benefits to Christians who fail to give up their devotions.”

No Street Protests Over this Black Life By Chris Knight

     The latest shocker:

“A black Trump supporter who was well known in his community for standing on street corners with "Vote Trump" signs as well as signs plastered with Bible verses was killed in broad daylight in Milwaukee's Riverwest neighborhood Thursday afternoon. Bernell Tremmell, 60, was shot in front of his business, Expression Publications, at 911 E. Wright. The building is covered in handmade signs, the most prominent of which read "Vote Donald Trump 2020," and "Re-Elect Trump 2020." Law enforcement sources tell "The Dan O'Donnell Show" that it is impossible to know the motive for the shooting since the suspect is not yet in custody, but detectives are investigating the possibility that Tremmell was killed over his political beliefs.”

The Good News from Poland By Richard Miler

     Cheer up – some good news, it is not all grim and black pilled. Take Poland for example:

“The Main Stream Media is horrified at Polish President Andrzej Duda’s July 13 re-election, warning once again of a “far-right” agenda that endangers everything the Great and the Good hold dear. Duda is a National Conservative: a culture warrior who didn’t just offer rhetoric. He offered tangible economic help to Poles, who rewarded him on Election Day. It’s a lesson President Donald Trump must learn. Andrzej Duda and the Law and Justice Party (PiS) didn’t just win, they beat  a “center-right” party, Rafal Trzaskowski’s Civic Platform, in the runoff. Though this is an imperfect comparison, it was roughly the equivalent of Pat Buchanan defeating Marco Rubio. Which is why the Anglosphere media reacted with the same stunned fury that would ensue if a socially conservative Catholic nationalist triumphed in the U.S.

The Royal Family’s Second Biggest Mistake By Richard Miller

     As a loyal monarchist, I was dismayed when Meghan Markle, of the Hollywood set jumped on board. She has been moved sideways, and now look at her.

“Meghan Markle has urged young women to join the fight against gender and race inequality and hinted at the reasons behind her royal exit during a keynote speech at a digital global leadership summit. In a nine-minute speech, the Duchess of Sussex spoke passionately about the role of young women in helping eradicate injustices around the world, telling the 40,000-strong audience at the online gathering for UN initiative Girl Up that it’s crucial they reject negativity and focus on “building each other up”. The appearance marked Meghan’s first public speaking role since stepping down as a senior royal. She was joined on the bill with an impressive line-up of high-profile women, including former First Lady Michelle Obama, former Secretary of State, Hillary Clinton and actress Priyanka Chopra. Standing in front of a plain wall in her LA home, Meghan, 38, looked vibrant in a blue dress and with her long hair loose and straight as she hinted at the cause of her split from the monarchy. “Your gut will tell you what’s right and wrong. What’s fair and unfair. The hardest part — and it was the hardest part for me — is to chase your convictions with action,” she said. “You look at the breadth of the issues we‘re facing right now, it is easy to get overwhelmed. I understand. “Be where you are in the moment. The growth and the change that you‘re pursuing might not feel like anything day-to-day. “But when you look back, I promise, you will see that it all adds up.”

Will the Fate of the Free World Rest Upon the Vote of Dead Cats? By Chris Knight

     This is how corrupt postal voting will be. Trump, if he has half a brain left, must squash it, Covid bug or not. Hand out protective masks and the like. If there can be BLM protests, then there can be personal voting too. Just ask the cats:

“Cody, a snuggly cat in Atlanta, wasn’t alive to see any of the Obama years, let alone the Trump era, but he received a voter registration form by mail on Wednesday. Fox 5 Atlanta had the story: “How’d this happen?” former owner Carol Tims wondered about the cat deceased for 12 years — since the George W. Bush administration. “I mean, it’s not reality. He’s a cat. Here he is,” she added, holding up his remains in a tiny green container. “If they’re trying to register cats, I’m not quite sure who else they’re trying to register. I don’t know if they’re registering dogs, mice, snakes?” Tims said. Fox 5 reported the feline was a “DemoCAT.” The Georgia Secretary of State blamed third-party groups for such activity. “Third-party groups all over the country are targeting Georgia to help register qualified individuals. This group makes you wonder what these out-of-town activists are really doing. Make no mistake about it, this office is dedicated to investigating all types of fraud,” Brad Raffensperger’s office said. Cody, of course, lives in the home state of Stacey Abrams, the failed gubernatorial candidate who has since made it her mission to fight voter ID laws. The Secretary of State’s office told Fox 5 Cody wouldn’t have been allowed to vote “since he did not have a license or state ID.” It’s not clear if Cody would have been able to cast a ballot in a full vote-by-mail system.”

Defund Left Wing Universities (All of Them) Now! By James Reed

     The “close down the universities” movement, started by me many years ago, was once regarded as solely the product of a crank mind, which in my case could well be true. But President Trump is taking some important baby steps in this direction:

“President Donald Trump tweeted Friday that he had told the U.S. Treasury to review the tax-exempt status of schools and universities that had become vehicles for left-wing indoctrination. “Too many Universities and School Systems are about Radical Left Indoctrination, not Education,” Trump wrote. “Therefore, I am telling the Treasury Department to re-examine their Tax-Exempt Status … and/or Funding, which will be taken away if this Propaganda or Act Against Public Policy continues. Our children must be Educated, not Indoctrinated!” Conservatives have long observed that American higher education has become increasingly left-wing. Data from the Foundation for Individual Rights in Education documents that conservative speakers are targeted for “dis-invitation” from campus far more often than liberal ones. College curricula also emphasize and reward left-wing ideas, and faculty members are overwhelmingly left-wing and liberal. The results of that education, conservative critics say, is evident in the recent Black Lives Matter protests, where graduates of elite universities have been among the rioters attacking police and tearing down statues. Last month, two lawyers, one with a degree from Princeton, were arrested for throwing Molotov cocktails into police cars in New York. Last March, President Trump signed an executive order that threatened colleges and universities with the withdrawal of federal research funding if they did not respect First Amendment rights to free speech.”

The Collapse of Western Civilisation: Cultural Marxism Unleashed By James Reed

     One Nation leader, Mark Latham talking to the great Alan Jones about much of the stuff we are writing about, but good to hear much more famous people saying this. Well, I do not imply that I have any fame at all, being nobody, but you know what I mean. I am glad someone does, as most of the time, I do not.

Cancel Cancel Culture By James Reed

     A really good piece by Brendan O’Neil over at on cancel culture, you know, tearing down everything worthwhile in the West.

“Trump is right. Cancel culture is the key weapon in the armoury of the intolerant. In his 4 July speech at Mount Rushmore, Trump talked about the ‘political weapon’ of ‘cancel culture’ – the totalitarian thirst for ‘driving people from their jobs, shaming dissenters, and demanding total submission from anyone who disagrees’. On the cult of wokeness, the ideology of PC that says there is only one way to think about history, race, gender and myriad other issues, Trump declared: ‘If you do not speak its language, perform its rituals, recite its mantras, and follow its commandments, then you will be censored, banished, blacklisted, persecuted and punished.’ Anyone who has been awake at any time over the past four weeks will know that Trump is right. They will have witnessed the furious, misogynistic rage against JK Rowling for refusing to ‘speak the language’ of the new woke elites – in this case the eccentric, science-denying language of ‘genderfluidity’. They will have seen Britain’s foreign secretary Dominic Raab being mauled for days for refusing to ‘perform the rituals’ of the correct-think mob – in this case by taking the knee (that is, bowing down) to the slogan of Black Lives Matter and all the identitarian nonsense that lurks behind it. And they will have seen black actor and TV host Terry Crews being denounced as a race traitor for refusing to ‘recite the mantras’ of the new identitarianism – in Crews’ case by expressing concern that the cry of ‘black lives matter’ might morph into a belief that ‘black lives are better’. In short, Crews was flirting with the great blasphemy of our time – the idea that ‘all lives matter’. And yet what has been the response to Trump’s Mount Rushmore speech from the commentariat and the liberal elites? Sheer, bizarre denialism. They insist cancel culture is a myth. They say there is no culture war against the past or against ordinary people’s moral and cultural values. That’s a lie spread by right-wingers like Trump, they claim. In fact, if anyone is igniting a culture war, it’s Trump, they say. ‘Trump fuels culture war at Mount Rushmore’, as a New York Times headline put it.”

Who Will Win Civil War 2.0? By Charles Taylor (Florida)

     John Mark does a summary of a Red Team analysis of how an American civil war will go, using 4th generation concepts. Sure, everyone adds the caveat, from our side, that no one advocates violence etc., we don’t want it, it is all just abstract, theory etc. But, a civil war is inevitable because the non-white demographic revolution has made Donald Trump the last Republican president. Mass immigration, and the demographic changes will make whites truly a dispossessed majority-come minority. Anyway, there goes democracy. And my caveat: I am just reporting on the discussion, advocating nothing. In a nut shell, and I have seen military types say the same, the new government and its legions would lose, despite numbers of grunters. Nukes and high power, high tech destructive weapons (e.g. killer drones) weapons can’t be used because it will destroy all the yummy infrastructure, and cannot differentiate between Red and Blue. So, it goes back to man on man, and sheer numbers don’t count for much over strategy, as theorists as far back as Sun Tzu recognised. Things like Blue states being less food self-sufficient, vulnerable infrastructure etc. matters. And, the video goes into much more. In short, there are simply more grass roots Right-wingers than the system, including police and military, because of private firearm ownership. Even the Dissent right alone would be enough, the video claims, and a sizeable proportion of the police and military will defect.

Of course, none one is advocating violence, and I am certainly not, merely reporting in the public interest, except our opponents, who are actually burning down America and killing, but many believe that it is going to happen at some point. In fact, it is happening already, although one-sided. The answer from the video is not civil war, which will be bloodier than the first one, but separationism, the great divorce. He appeals to the Left to start this process now. Thus, the question is: can this be done without further violence? Many see the collapse and an era of violence as inevitable now, but I still have fleeting hopes that something may be pulled out of the dying embers.

Australia About to Do a Bob Hawke 2.0 By James Reed

     I must agree with China against Australia on this one, even though I am a China critic, in general; taking in the Hong Kong antifa is an unnecessary antagonism of China, and it is only done because of immigration mania. China has warned both us and New Zealand to butt out of their internal affairs. Given that there are rising tensions now, and that defence gurus are warning as well that armed conflict is coming, we really do not want to be inflaming the situation prematurely, at least until we can get together a few soldiers in their utes for a five-minute symbolic defence.

“Scott Morrison has unveiled a more aggressive defence strategy aimed at countering the rise of China, while warning that Australia faces regional challenges on a scale not seen since World War II.

No, I am Joe Biden’s Husband! By Charles Taylor

     The manic Left-wing press, and the so-called fact checkers deny it, but you can, listening to the tape, clearly hear Joe Biden refer to himself as “Joe Biden’s husband.” This shows that the guy is senile as can be, and that the press lies through their teeth, anything to get their bunny in to polish us off:

“Joe Biden appeared to suffer another mental malfunction on Friday when he referred to himself as “Joe Biden’s husband.” The presumptive Democrat nominee for president was speaking to the National Education Association annual conference, and union president Lily Eskelsen Garcia touted Jill Biden’s membership in the largely compulsory organization. She then introduced Biden, who said, “I’m Joe Biden’s Husband, Joe Biden.” He didn’t correct himself and launched into his remarks.

Is The Slogan “Black Lives Matter” Racist Itself? By Richard Miller

     Looking at the US situation from London, I must say that it was not been established that the killing of George Floyd was a “racist” act. A killing, yes, horrible, yes, but would the cop who was trained by a foreign military to use the knee on the neck technique, use this technique on a White, Asian, or Latino? Surely, he would. Since it is likely to be non-discriminatory, clearly the protester had all of their racial rampage stuff pre-cooked and ready to go. So, let us look more closely now at the very slogan, “Black Lives Matter’:

“Czech President Milos Zeman on Tuesday (June 30) described the "Black Lives Matter" slogan as racist, 11 days after the European Parliament strongly backed the BLM campaign and urged EU countries to embrace its aims. Speaking at the US embassy in Prague to mark US Independence Day on July 4, Zeman compared the BLM leadership to the ever-watchful eyes of "Big Brother" keeping tabs on citizens' behaviour. Zeman targeted the "Black Lives Matter" campaign that has spread around the globe since George Floyd, an unarmed African-American man, was killed in US police custody a month ago. "I say that the slogan 'Black Lives Matter' is a racist slogan because all lives matter," Zeman said in a speech provided by his spokesman. The BLM movement says black lives have been valued far less than the lives of others. Zeman, a pro-Russian and pro-Chinese left-winger, slammed what he called attacks on the independence of citizens, faith and nations. Addressing the US ambassador in English, Zeman denounced "the riots on the streets, the burning of the cars, destroying of statues in both countries". In the Czech Republic, an EU country, protesters painted the words "He was a racist" and "Black Lives Matter" on a statue of British World War II leader Winston Churchill. The BLM movement has been regarded as largely peaceful. Protesters have targeted statues in the United States and Europe that depict historical figures who owned slaves or were colonisers. The 75-year-old Zeman, who is serving his second five-year term until 2023, blamed "stupid fellows who declare themselves value leaders, or even opinion leaders". "We need free thinking, we need common sense," he said. "I do not need any new Big Brother," he said, using a term from George Orwell's classic dystopian novel 1984 to claim the BLM was foisting its opinions on others. Adopted by 493 to 104 votes, the European Parliament on June 19 declared that "Black Lives Matter" and denounced racism and white supremacism in all its forms. The symbolic resolution rebuked US President Donald Trump for his "inflammatory rhetoric" and for threatening to deploy the army against protesters. It also urged EU countries to denounce "the disproportionate use of force and racist tendencies in law enforcement".

Beware, the Coming Plague By Brian Simpson

     While there are sceptics from the Dissent Right, poo-pooing the idea of a coronavirus plague, there is material out there that needs careful consideration before blandly accepting the mainstream media claim of only 26 dead … oh wait that is now 54 dead with 300 new cases, with the disease contained to the Chinese ground zero of the city of Wuhan. In fact, the Chinese President Xi Jinping, has said that the spread of the virus is accelerating and that the situation is “grave,” no pun intended.

     The really bad news is that this disease could be another “Spanish” (actually Chinese) Flu, all over again, with a death toll of 65 million, or more:

Soros in Davos By Charles Taylor

     Trump was in Davos, giving a soft nationalist speech, which is better than nothing. But Georgie boy was there too, to counter him at every corner, as he does in his 24/7 job:

“Left-wing billionaire George Soros on Thursday reportedly warned that the 2020 election will determine the “fate of the world” and lashed out at President Donald Trump during a private dinner event at the World Economic Forum in Davos, Switzerland. Soros, the 89-year-old founder of the progressive advocacy organization Open Society Foundations, accused the president of being a “con man” and a “narcissist” who wants the world to “revolve around him,” according to CNBC. “When his fantasy of becoming president became a reality,” his ego swelled, Soros said, adding: “This has turned his narcissism into a malignant disease.” Soros, who has yet to endorse a 2020 Democrat candidate, then said that this year’s election will decide the “fate of the world,” CNBC reports. In October, the billionaire argued White House contender Sen. Elizabeth Warren (D-MA) is the “most qualified to be president,” but stopped short of formally throwing his support behind her. This, of course, is not the first time the hedge fund manager has taken aim at President Trump at the World Economic Forum. Last year, Soros criticized the president’s negotiating style against China, which culminated in the signing of a phase one trade agreement last Wednesday. “Regrettably, President Trump seems to be following a different course: Make concessions to China and declare victory while renewing his attacks on U.S. allies,” Soros said at the time.

Now Criticising the Government is a Criminal Offence! By Chris Knight

     I did not think the system would bite back so hard, or quickly after being smacked down in the recent US gun march; now criticising the government is illegal, in the land of the free, the USA:

“In the wake of the Virginia gun rights rally on Monday, Democrats in the Capitol are not slowing down their push for tyranny. They are moving a bill through the legislature that would effectively criminalize dissent against Governor Blackface Northam and other state government officials. House Bill 1627 was introduced by Delegate Jeffrey M. Bourne last week. The legislation “provides that certain crimes relating to threats and harassment may be prosecuted in the City of Richmond if the victim is the Governor, Governor-elect, Lieutenant Governor, Lieutenant Governor-elect, Attorney General, or Attorney General-elect, a member or employee of the General Assembly, a justice of the Supreme Court of Virginia, or a judge of the Court of Appeals of Virginia.” Language in the bill explicitly criminalizes free speech, in what would constitute a blatant attack on the 1st Amendment of the Constitution. “If any person, with the intent to coerce, intimidate, or harass any person, shall use a computer or computer network to communicate obscene, vulgar, profane, lewd, lascivious, or indecent language, or make any suggestion or proposal of an obscene nature, or threaten any illegal or immoral act, he is guilty of a Class 1 misdemeanor,” the legislation reads. The legislation makes it clear that the above provision applies directly to “the Governor, Governor-elect, Lieutenant Governor, Lieutenant Governor-elect, Attorney General, or Attorney General-elect, a member or employee of the General Assembly, a justice of the Supreme Court of Virginia, or a judge of the Court of Appeals of Virginia,” which means this legislation effectively criminalizes dissent against public officials. Tina Freitas, wife of Republican Delegate Nick Freitas, called attention to this intolerable act in a Facebook post on Tuesday night.

Is it Possible to Defeat the Mainstream Media? By Michael Ferguson

     We would like to think that the big evil media monsters can be defeated. The big question is: how? Some worthy ideas have been given by Ron Unz, who uses Saul Alinsky ideas from the Left, against the Left, in a kind of epistemological judo:

“Discrediting the Media Anywhere Weakens It Everywhere
The mainstream media exists as a seamless whole, so weakening or discrediting the media in any particular area automatically reduces its influence everywhere else as well. The elements of the media narrative faced by a particular anti-establishment group may be too strong and well-defended to attack effectively, and any such attacks might also be discounted as ideologically motivated. Hence, the more productive strategy may sometimes be an indirect one, attacking the media narrative elsewhere, at points where it is much weaker and less well-defended. In addition, winning those easier battles may generate greater credibility and momentum, which can then be applied to later attacks on more difficult fronts.

Mass Immigration and the End of the Aussie Way of Life By James Reed

     Anyone who was following the immigration and multiculturalism debate in the 1980s and 1990s, would remember that the key argument of the Growths was that none of this would change the Australian way of life, but that diversity would enrich it, with all the metaphors of meals, dinners, salads and things that the decadent chattering class, liked. It was a lie for the time, just like populate or perish was for the World War II era. Here is Ross Gittins, still going at it, God bless him:

“The nation’s economic elite – politicians of all colours, businesspeople and economists – long ago decided we need to grow our population as fast as we can. To them, their reasons for believing this are so blindingly obvious they don’t need to be discussed. Unfortunately, however, it’s doubtful most ordinary Australians agree. A survey last year by researchers at the Australian National University found that more than 69 per cent of respondents felt we didn’t need more people, well up on a similar poll in 2010. This may explain why Scott Morrison announced before this year’s election a big cut in our permanent migrant intake – while failing to mention that our booming temporary migrant intake wouldn’t be constrained. He also foreshadowed measures to encourage more migrants to settle in regional cities. What he didn’t say is what he’d be doing differently this time, given the many times such efforts had failed in the past. In between scandalising over the invading hordes of boat people, John Howard greatly increased the immigration intake after the turn of the century, and this has been continued by the later Labor and Coalition governments. “Net overseas migration” accounts for about 60 per cent of our population growth. In 2000, the Australian Bureau of Statistics projected that our population wouldn’t reach 25.4 million until 2051. We got there this year. Our population is growing much faster than other developed countries are. The growth in our economy has been so weak over the past year that they’ve had to stop saying it, but for years our politicians boasted about how much faster our economy was growing than the other economies. What they invariably failed to mention was that most of our faster growth was explained by our faster-growing population, not our increasing prosperity. Over the year to June, for instance, real gross domestic product grew by (a pathetic) 1.4 per cent, whereas GDP per person actually fell by 0.2 per cent. That’s telling us that, despite the growth in the economy, on average our material standard of living is stagnant. All that immigration isn’t making the rest of us any better off in monetary terms.”
