Unemployment Rubbery Figures By James Reed

     The government tells us that the “official’ unemployment rate in Australia is 5.7 percent, which is “vote for me, good.” But, as pointed out in an article by the razor-sharp Adam Creighton (The Australian, May 22, 2017, p. 12), the official figure is nonsense, with the unemployment rate being at almost three times that, at 15 percent.

     Rather than 732,000 Australians not being able to find work, more than 2.26 million are unemployed. The way the government fakes the figures is to use a definition of "employment” that has any one working more than an hour a week as employed!  To be unemployed, the test is much harder: one needs to have applied for a job in the past four weeks and be ready to start work.

Today, There is Not Even a "Brisbane Line" By James Reed

     There is a lot in the papers recently about what a great bloke and leader Bob Menzies was: “Menzies Taught Us to Strive and Never Yield”: The Australian , May 22, 2017, p. 12.

     Now wait a minute! This is the same Bob Menzies called “pig iron bob,’ who gladly sold Australian steel to the imperial Japanese, who then used it to make weapons to be fired back at Aussies? See: http://primeministers.naa.gov.au/image.aspx?id=tcm:13-22114. If you research this on the net, you will see trade unionist sites and also old, not new Left sites, which in those days supported Aussie workers, as advancing the pig iron bob criticism. You will also find academics poo-pooing this, saying that it is an urban myth, just like the “Brisbane line,” Bob’s alleged plan to abandon all of Australia above a hypothetical line going through Brisbane.

Letter to The Editor

to THE AGE     The great majority of Australians are unlikely to endorse 'constitutional' recognition of Aboriginals and Torres Strait Islanders, no matter what formula is produced at the  Uluru meeting ('Call to be bold on recognition', 25/5). This is because it is so obviously against the national interest as a whole. We are not willing to yield the sovereignty of any part of our nation to a very small ethnic group, no matter what their ancestry or the past sufferings of their ancestors during dispossession.

     Thus, their talk of 'indigenous sovereignty' at once arouses our opposition. So do demands that 'substantive change' must 'tell the truth about history.' We insist on maintaining open debate on all aspects of human history. Moreover, the current public debate in the media is not doing justice to non-Aboriginal Australians. A good example is the extraordinary assertion by Cheryl Saunders ('Constitutional recognition is a work in progress', 24/5) that the question of the meaning of recognition 'can only be answered by those being recognised.' Those doing the recognising have rights too!NJ, Belgrave, Vic

Letter to The Editor

to THE AUSTRALIAN     Australia has badly needed for some time the statement on 'constitutional' recognition provided by Greg Sheridan ('Misguided, squeamish liberals are failing Aborigines', 25/5). Yes, any such recognition is fundamentally unjust as well as being nationally divisive. While Sheridan is right to object to the one-sided government campaign in support of this misguided project, the Liberals are by no means the only culprits. What about the foolish idealists of the left who have learned nothing from their predecessors' contribution to the disaster that is Zimbabwe? And what about external enemies only too eager to weaken our nation in pursuit of their own ambitions?  NJ, Belgrave, Vic   


The Silence of the Lambs By Bruce Bennett

     Another day, another slaughter from terrorists, this time in Manchester, where a home-grown Islamic terrorist suicide bomber murdered 22 people, including mothers and children. Salman Abedi was the British-born son of Libyan refugees, and recently returned to Britain from Libya, and had been in contact with Syrian Islamic fundamentalists: http://www.telegraph.co.uk/news/2017/05/24/everything-know-salman-abedi-named-manchester-suicide-bomber/.

     Abedi is thought to be only one of many ready suicide bombers, and Manchester police, along with most of Britain is on red-alert. Even in sleepy Australia, authorities intend to check all bags taken into the weekend football, which is a sound idea. The lack of security in Australia is just making it easy for the Manchester tragedy to be repeated here. Indeed, the NSW coroner has found that the NSW police took too long to storm the Lindt café during the Monis siege, as well as numerous other errors: The Australian, May 25, 2017, p. 1.  In response, the NSW police will be given rifles to deal with terror threats. One hopes, given other incidents where innocent bystanders took friendly fire: http://www.abc.net.au/news/2016-06-09/four-injured-as-police-shoot-man-hornsby-shopping-centre/7496102,  that adequate training with rifles will be given.

The Psychology of Prohibiting Outside Thought By James Reed

     There is an insight piece by Justin Murphy, http://jmrphy.net/blog/2017/05/15/psychology-of-prohibiting-outside-thinkers/, which deals, from the perspective of the Left, with the Left-wing dominance of the culture of discourse in the West. Why does the Left close down Right wing thought, on moral grounds? Actually he should have probed deeper and recognised that the Left openly resort to violence to shut down anyone they see as a threat. On university campuses, even notices challenging aspects of globalisation get torn down. Therefore, the article is somewhat superficial and does not address the clear fact that the Left has state-legitimated terrorists who freely break the law, and are permitted to get away with it. These terrorists within a few years move into positions of power and continue the agenda of national suicide and racial destruction.

    Still, for its limits, the article has some merits, although written in the usual academic language:

From Gas to Ovens By Adrian Davis

    Trump previously bombed Syria because, it was alleged that President Bashar al-Assad used chemical weapons, such as gas: https://www.nytimes.com/2017/04/04/world/middleeast/syria-gas-attack.html?_r=0. There have been numerous critiques of this, not just from the fringes, but even more mainstream sources: http://www.zerohedge.com/news/2017-04-08/michael-savage-turns-trump-says-syrian-gas-attack-was-false-flag-operation, and of course, Putin denies that chemical weapons were used.

    Now, moving on from gas, the latest claim is that Syria is now operating genocidal ovens, burning the dead: http://thehill.com/blogs/pundits-blog/international-affairs/334161-syrias-crematoriums-echo-the-holocaust-president. “The most important human rights story of the week seems to have been largely overshadowed by political headlines. The report that should consume the international community is the revelation that U.S. satellite photos have identified crematoria at Syrian President Bashar Assad’s Sednaya prison. Assad built these killing centers to destroy the evidence of his mass murder of innocent civilians and political opponents in Syria, amid a growing genocide.” See: https://www.washingtonpost.com/world/national-security/us-accuses-syria-of-mass-executions-and-burning-bodies/2017/05/15/b7b66c86-3986-11e7-8854-21f359183e8c_story.html?utm_term=.bf55cc2006fe.

French Voters are Getting What They Voted For By Peter Ewer

    If we can trust the French election results, and Ms Le Pen with her female strength, has given no indication that we cannot, then the majority of French people must be mighty happy with the state of France, much like these Italians: https://www.rt.com/news/389106-milan-protest-migrants-rights/. Not to worry, for most of the migrants will go to Northern Europe anyway: http://www.independent.co.uk/news/world/europe/mediterranean-migrant-crisis-italy-threatens-to-let-tens-of-thousands-of-refugees-loose-across-the-10324624.html.

    France can therefore be happy with: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=8W3sYeBr3qA, and the creation of no-go zones for women: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=8W3sYeBr3qA; http://www.breitbart.com/london/2017/05/21/parisian-women-face-constant-harassment-by-migrants/.  Or, you can read it in French, while the language still exists: http://www.leparisien.fr/paris-75018/harcelement-les-femmes-chassees-des-rues-dans-le-quartier-chapelle-pajol-18-05-2017-6961779.php.

Are Men the Real Aggressors in Partner Abuse? By Mrs Vera West

     According to the US CDC: https://www.cdc.gov/violenceprevention/nisvs/, a national study has shown that, contrary to the ideological claims of feminism, made each day to brainwash students in our schools and universities, more men than women are victims of partner abuse, and over 40 percent of men are victims of severe physical violence. Men are frequently the victims of psychological aggression.

     If one examines data about sexual abuse in US prisons, then more men than women are raped in the US: http://www.dailymail.co.uk/news/article-2449454/More-men-raped-US-women-including-prison-sexual-abuse.html. Looks like men deserve  “liberation” too.  Ask yourself, would a man who stabbed his partner have the usual prison term waived merely because it might damage his career? Not likely. But an Oxford female student stabbed her boyfriend and avoided jail for just this reason: https://www.thesun.co.uk/news/3605956/oxford-student-lavinia-woodward-spared-prison-sentence-after-stabbing-lover-attacked-him-twice-before-and-lied-about-having-cancer-to-cover-up-coke-habit/.

EU is Short for European Undoing Peter West

     The EU is just a form of globalism designed to ethnically destroy primarily Northern European people as an ethnic group and demographically displace them. The European Commissioner Dimitris Avramopoulos recently gave a speech at the “Conference on Migration, Security and how they affect the Future of Europe” in Geneva: https://needtoknow.news/2017/03/616/.

Letter to The Editor

to THE AUSTRALIAN     Maurice Newman asks a very pertinent question (‘Turnbull stood applauding as Liberal inheritance sank from view’, 22/5): ‘Who now will champion our freedoms?’  The answer is: those who care for and fight for truth. Ah yes, but what does this mean?     The nature of truth is a metaphysical mystery, which is why in the founding narrative of our culture Jesus does not try to reply to Pontius Pilate’s question ‘What is truth?’ In all traditional societies it has been the role of religion, of the guardians of the sacred, to maintain for communities access to truth and, at the same time, to ensure that truth is mediated into worldly human society. This fundamental reality is beautifully symbolised in the Old Testament by the account of Jacob’s ladder (Genesis 28:12).     Unfortunately Christian sacred tradition has become ossified and attenuated. It no longer serves as an adequate guide. Instead we observe the growth of literalist evangelicalism and fundamentalism, on the one hand, and, on the other hand, secular dreaming by those on the left whom Eric Voegelin, one of the greatest thinkers of the 20th century, stigmatised as ‘modern gnostics’. Neither, as Carl Jung warned, is commensurate to the challenges of our times.     Our new champions, then, will be young persons who have seen through this cultural confusion and reconnected with gateways to metaphysical reality.NJ, Belgrave, Vic

Last One Out Turn Off the Lights By James Reed

     See, I told you so. No good will come from this seductive high tech society. Dutch intelligence chief Rob Bertholee, has said that the world may be close to a “serious act of digital sabotage” which could trigger unrest, “chaos and disorder.” See: http://www.france24.com/en/20170516-world-close-serious-digital-sabotage-dutch-spy-chief?ref=fb. Bertholee  said at a cyber-security conference in The Hague,  that sabotage of critical infrastructure “is the kind of thing that might keep you awake at night.” Digital threats “are not imaginary, they are everywhere around us.” “In my opinion, we might be closer to a serious act of digital sabotage than a lot of people can imagine.” For example, apart from the existing “ransomware” attack, in 2012 the computers at Saudi Arabia’s largest oil company came under brief attack, and three years later Ukrainian electricity companies were hacked resulting in  a massive blackout lasting several hours.

“Imagine what would happen if the entire banking system were sabotaged for a day, two days, for a week.” “Or if there was a breakdown in our transportation network. Or if air traffic controllers faced cyberattacks while directing flights. The consequences could be catastrophic.” “Sabotage on one of these sectors could have major public repercussions, causing unrest, chaos and disorder.”    Islamic terrorists may move in this direction, but conventional powers are also likely to resort to cyber-attacks, and may well be undertaking them now.    I for one, am stocking up on candles and matches for when the lights go out – forever.

So, We have Only 100 Years Left for Naked Lady Lap Dancing! By Paul Walker

     Sorry for mentioning naked ladies in the title, but trust me, it is relevant and not gratuitous sensationalism just to get Google hits. You see Stephen Hawking, who is ok in the IQ department, has said that humanity seriously needs to start looking for a new planet because within 100 years, this one will be pretty much finished, from everything from pollution to nuclear war and the population bomb: http://www.wired.co.uk/article/stephen-hawking-100-years-on-earth-prediction-starmus-festival.

     Well, let us suppose that this is so, just for the sake of argument. What is to stop the new planet from being destroyed in record time too? If we can’t save this one, then what likelihood is there of saving the next? And, the one after that? At some point we will reach the limit of space exploration and have to face our own hubris. Why not do it now? In fact, with the slow development of space travel, and the problems of long-term life in space, it is most unlikely that our future will be in the stars: https://www.wired.com/2016/02/space-is-cold-vast-and-deadly-humans-will-explore-it-anyway/; https://www.businessinsider.com.au/living-in-space-causes-health-problems-2012-7?r=US&IR=T; https://www.wired.com/2012/07/medicine-psychology-space/?pid=4350&viewall=true.    Meanwhile, in his down time Professor Hawking likes to frolic with the naked ladies at a Californian sex club, as far as that is possible for someone with motor neuron disease in a wheelchair: http://www.mirror.co.uk/news/uk-news/stephen-hawking-brief-history-lapdancing-745182.     My guess is that given he has previously said that we had 1,000 years to get off the planet, we should take the latest news with a bag of salt.

Letter to The Editor

If you are trying to understand Scott Morrison’s Budget, which someone has described as a ‘Labor Budget’, then the following quote from Mr Robert Menzies (Leader of the Liberal Party) in The Age, March 3, 1941, p. 7, may bring some enlightenment.Mr. Menzies is reported to have said:

“I always tell my Opposition friends that the only difference between us is that I am theoretically non-Socialist, yet an amazingly practical Socialist, while they are theoretical Socialists. People will take things from us they wouldn’t take from the Labor party. That is outstandingly true in Australia. It is a question of speed. The whole process has been a magnificent justification of the Parliamentary system despite its superior critics. You get two views which, in theory, are violently opposed. In practice the extreme course of today is a commonplace of tomorrow. I claim to think, and that seems to be a most unpopular pastime with a great number of people.”

The Trojan Horse of ‘Constitutional’ Recognition By Nigel Jackson

     The ongoing campaign for ‘constitutional’ recognition of the Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples is an enormous and dangerous scam, no matter how idealistic or not its various proponents are. An attempt to work a vast fraud on the Australian people is in progress; and it is difficult not to believe that there is a ‘third party’, financially and thus politically powerful, behind the whole adventure.

     This critical situation became even more apparent in a huge article in The Australian (20-21 May), ‘Renewing the Faith of 67’ by Nicolas Rothwell, journalist, authority on Aboriginal affairs and long-time advocate for ‘constitutional’ recognition. Although this article is far from impartial and thus genuinely comprehensive, it gives a useful summary of the moves towards ‘Aboriginal sovereignty’ (and thus future national division) since the 1967 referendum. It shows (unintentionally) that a clear pattern emerges of a long-term plan to destabilise the Australian nation, just as former communist Geoff McDonald predicted in his 1982 book Red Over Black.

The Cyber Bullet: One Will Hit By Brian Simpson

     The computer geeks are feeling pretty proud of themselves here in OZ, dealing with the “WannaCry” ransomware, which hit over 200,000 computers in 150 countries. The software is believed to have been derived from a computer bug developed by the US National Security Agency. Like biological viruses, it got out somehow and sort to replicate.

     Reports have it that this is the product of one lone wolf actor. Thus, the question is raised; what happens when, not if, the next major conflict, if not war, erupts between the United States and a country with great cyber-prowess, such as Russia, or China? Surely this present cyber-attack would be nothing compared to what IT super-powers could deliver.

Coffin Homes By John Steele

     Real estate prices in Hong Kong are, well, unreal, the way the elites are hoping that they will be in Australia soon with their program of mass migration: http://www.naturalnews.com/2017-05-17-hong-kong-now-renting-out-coffin-homes-that-are-only-120-square-feet-of-living-space.html.  The homes are basically 10 to 15 foot “coffins” stacked on top of each other. Hundreds of thousands of people are now forced to live like this, and this will be our future too if the sheeple continue to do nothing and be, mindless sheeple.

     The future could perhaps be one where people have even less space, but have only “lockers” where they slide in to sleep, with a few possessions at their side. But, I expect long before this, a genetically engineered zombie virus, or a naturally occurring super-bird flu, may put humanity out of its misery.

Play the Migration Card Again, Sam By James Reed

     As far as journalists in The Australian go, Gary Johns is very good, and brave. In his article “Time to Play the Migration Card,” after giving the usual platitudes about the majority of people supporting migration, he goes on to break ranks with the elites.  He rejects the idea that Australia is a multicultural society. It is not.   Australia is multiethnic, but is monolingual, with limited cultural diversity. India is an example of a true multicultural society.

     Host countries also have a right to demand that migrants fit in, and that is the price paid in migrating to Australia in the first place.

Uncle Len the Ex-cleaner on the Splendour of Gender Neutral Bathrooms By Uncle Len, Eager for a Job

     Once upon a time I was known as Len the Cleaner, and I wrote a mighty fine blog, between cleaning men’s toilets. I was never permitted to clean women toilets, that being done by my evil sister, Lennette the Cleaner.  Now, we have transgender bathrooms and people all over the internet have been sending in emails wanting to know my opinion about them. Look here is the enlightened public service doing the right thing again with people’s money: http://www.smh.com.au/federal-politics/political-news/public-service-push-for-genderneutral-bathrooms-20170511-gw2taq.html.

     I think that the more toilets and genders we have the better things will be for people like me, who were born to clean up other people’s messes. And, the more genders, the better. I think there are 32 at the moment, but I could think up that many at breakfast. As that great defender of freedom, comedian Charlie Mao said, “let a thousand flowers bloom.” Somebody who killed millions would know a thing or two about messes.

The Elites Live for Death, Destruction and War By Bruce Bennett

     How is this for a headline that reaches out and kicks you right in the…well…guts? “Washington is Preparing a Nuclear First Strike on Russia: Are You Ready to Die?” http://www.informationclearinghouse.info/47035.htm.This is no mere crank article but is by respected journalist Paul Craig Roberts, former US Assistant Secretary to the Treasury for financial Policy under president Reagan in 1981: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Paul_Craig_Roberts. Yes, there are elements of a conspiracy in world affairs, but the alternative is what Eric Butler called the idiot theory of history, that things just happen. But, history is not like that, and wars are usually political manipulations that countries undertake for politico-economic reasons. The entry of the US into World War I and II, are examples. The US government new that Japan was preparing to attack Pearl Harbor, and even the newspapers knew this, as witnesses from a piece reproduced below from the Hilo Tribune Herald, November 30, 1941:

     This claim now is no longer to be found only in fringe revisionist history books, but can be found in mainstream newspapers: http://www.telegraph.co.uk/news/worldnews/northamerica/usa/8932197/Pearl-Harbour-memo-shows-US-warned-of-Japanese-attack.html.
