The Unstoppable Rise of Killer Robots! By Brian Simpson

     We don’t hear much about original sin nowadays. The mainstream churches are now basically politically correct forms of social work, and, I am sorry to say, the alternatives seem to have swallowed the Enlightenment idea that technology will bring us the promised land, maybe not utopia, as that is too communistic, but still, some sort of economic land of plenty, with a happy ending for us all.  However, there needs to be some people raising the uncomfortable questions, such as whether technology, not just technocrats (an enormous problem in itself), will kill us, as it all self-destructs.

“The rise of killer robots is now unstoppable and a new digital Geneva Convention is essential to protect the world from the growing threat they pose, according to the President of the world’s biggest technology company. In an interview with The Telegraph, Brad Smith, president of Microsoft, said the use of 'lethal autonomous weapon systems' poses a host of new ethical questions which need to be considered by governments as a matter of urgency. He said the rapidly advancing technology, in which flying, swimming or walking drones can be equipped with lethal weapons systems – missiles, bombs or guns – which could be programmed to operate entirely or partially autonomously, "ultimately will spread… to many countries". The US, China, Israel, South Korea, Russia and the UK are all developing weapon systems with a significant degree of autonomy in the critical functions of selecting and attacking targets. The technology is a growing focus for many militaries because replacing troops with machines can make the decision to go to war easier. But it remains unclear who is responsible for deaths or injuries caused by a machine – the developer, manufacturer, commander or the device itself.

Ethnic Carnage, Diversity, Rides Again! By Richard Miller

     We don’t hear too much about what is going on in Ethiopia here in Australia through the MSM. Well, chaos, violence and all the trimmings:
  https://www.washingtonexaminer.com/news/ethnic-violence-in-ethiopia-leaves-churches-burned-and-worshipers-killed?utm_source=browser_push&utm_medium=onesignal&utm_campaign=push_notifications

“Over a year after the ascent of a new prime minister in Ethiopia bred hope for reform, bursting ethnic tensions are sending the country into a spiral of violence that is leaving churches and worshippers subject to property damage and murder. Thirty churches, mostly Ethiopian Orthodox, have been attacked, 18 have been burned to the ground, and almost 100 worshippers have been killed since July 2018, Tewodros Tirfe, chairman of the Amhara Association of America, an organization that advocates on behalf of Ethiopia's Amhara people, told the Washington Examiner. Christians and non-Christians alike have been caught up in the crossfire of heightened ethnic and political violence. Earlier this month, Ethiopian Orthodox Church leaders and government officials met, while Christians protested the violence directed at them. The protests and meetings have yet to produce a concrete plan of action from the government, although they are a major problem for Prime Minister Abiy Ahmed, who has struggled to control violence among the country's roughly 80 ethnic groups, despite inspiring optimism across the world when he assumed office last April. Vice President Mike Pence praised Abiy last July, lauding his "historic reform efforts" and noting his work on "improving respect for human rights, reforming the business environment, and making peace with Eritrea." Abiy oversaw the release of hundreds of political prisoners, and a CNN report from December labeled him the prime minister "who captured Africa's imagination.

San Franny’s Real Zombie Apocalypse By Chris Knight

Andrew Bolt on the Climate Change Fanatical Cult By James Reed

     The difference between me and Andrew Bolt, is that Andrew is a real journalist, while I am just a rank amateur, even though I have been writing for what, a century? No, not that long; maybe five years, perhaps 10, I don’t remember. Anyway, here are some great articles on the madness around the climate strike, involving the institutions I have a fanatical hatred for myself, the universities:

     Full marks on an assignment if one attended the climate strike? I mean to say, is that even legal? Then, the protest signs by students had spelling errors, indicating that the little darlings really cannot afford the time away from their studies:

Running on Empty By James Reed

     Bad news with some regions looking to run out of water, not because of climate change, but natural variability, and government mismanagement:
  https://www.theguardian.com/australia-news/2019/sep/15/parts-of-regional-nsw-set-to-run-out-of-water-by-november

“Parts of regional New South Wales could run out of water as early as November with data showing the worst-case scenario for the state if there’s no rain or government intervention. The projections from NSW’s river operator and bulk water supplier WaterNSW show without significant rain the first towns to lose water supply will be Dubbo, Cobar, Nyngan and Narromine with the Macquarie River forecast to run dry by November. The Macquarie River experiences an average inflow of 1,448GL annually but in the past two years has seen just 97GL enter the river system, the data shows. It has been described as a “critical” situation by the NSW water minister, Melinda Pavey, who told reporters in Canberra on Sunday the government is doing “everything humanly possible” to make sure the state gets through this devastating drought. The NSW government has committed $130m for extra bores and pipelines to reduce water lost in transmission, she said, citing a pipeline to extend Tamworth’s water supply by 18 months and $30m for bores in Dubbo. Australia’s longest river, the Murray, has been severely affected with 901GL of water entering the system in the past 12 months compared with its annual average of 5000GL. The data shows that Menindee Lakes – which is a source of flows for the Lower Darling and is a vital fish nursery – received just six gigalitres of water in the past year. Its annual inflow average is 1,387GL. The lakes sit within the town of Menindee which experienced mass fish deaths along the Darling River last summer.”

Changing the Ten Commandments to Suit Chinese Communism By Peter West

     With mass Chinese migration, without end, I wonder what life will be like down the track in majority China-Australia, or is that “Chinaustralasiaasiaasia”? How will things go for Christians? Looking at the churches today, I expect that they are hoping to get Chinese bums on seats to replace the dwindling Anglos. But, there may be a few surprises in store:
  https://www.breitbart.com/asia/2019/09/18/china-forces-churches-to-replace-ten-commandments-with-xi-jinping-quotes/

“The Chinese Communist Party (CCP) has forced Christian churches across Henan province to replace the Ten Commandments with quotes from President Xi Jinping in its latest effort to “sinicize” religious practice in the officially atheist country. One pastor from a state-run Protestant church said that the CCP’s latest move is part of a systematic plan to erode Christian doctrine in the country, adding that the ultimate goal of the party is to “become God.” “The government’s first step is to prohibit religious couplets” said the pastor, who spoke under the condition of anonymity. “Then it dismantles crosses and starts to implement the ‘four requirements’ by ordering the national flag and ‘core socialist values’ to be placed in churches.”

Confess Your Sins Against the Gods of Climate Change! By James Reed

     Clown world is in full swing, and I write this piece as the climate strike by angry school kids, and even some so-called enlightened capitalists, who have let their workers out of their day cages to protest, is underway. As if some school kids and university students are going to change the growth economy. All it will do is create more hardship for the very people the Left were supposed to support, workers and unemployed, if anything is done at all. Wait … stop press … in the right of the screen a news item just popped up:
  https://www.dailymail.co.uk/news/article-7484625/School-children-admit-dont-care-climate-change-just-want-day-off.html?ico=pushly-notifcation-small

“A group of school children who attended the climate change protest have admitted they just wanted the day off of school. More than 50,000 people flooded Sydney's streets as they made their way to the Domain to take part in the protest, calling for governments and businesses to commit to a target of net zero carbon emissions by 2030. As the sea of people made their way to the event at midday on Friday, some school students on scooters could be seen heading in the opposite direction - appearing disinterested in the event. In the heart of the city police were spotted wrestling with a man holding a plastic bag of rubbish as protesting onlookers watched on in horror. One elderly woman was left sprawled on the ground in pain as officers arrested the man and dragged him away from the crowd punching and screaming. A group of 14-year-old boys straggling at the back of the crowd near the Domain told Daily Mail Australia they weren't interested in the protest. They said they were just happy to be out of the class room. One of the boys said they were going to go to Subway for lunch as they were hungry. When asked why they came out for the event one replied: 'I just wanted the day off school'. 'A lot of our friends said they were coming so we thought we should come too.'”

Rambo Last Blood: Should be Given 50 Stars! By John Steele

     I don’t go to movies, and haven’t seen this one, but that little fact should not stop me posting a 50-star review of this exquisite movie. I have seen the clip, and know what happens, so I am good to go. And, I mean to say, something should be done to counter the Leftoid’s panning of this movie which they see as a Trumpesque, toxic masculinity fantasy, which in my view makes it great stuff, mate. Yeah, guns, knives, what is there not to like?
  https://www.theguardian.com/film/2019/sep/19/rambo-last-blood-review
  https://www.rollingstone.com/movies/movie-reviews/rambo-last-blood-movie-review-stallone-885610/

“As for the usual jingoistic chest-thumping, that’s saved for a climactic voiceover. But Last Blood‘s  basic takeaway — that heroes wear white hats and bad guys have brown skin — will be trumpeted throughout the whole bloody affair, from beginning to things-go-boom end. This is apparently what a Rambo movie circa 2019 now means. The man-vs.-cartel action you crave will be smothered in irresponsible fearmongering. The taste of toxicity will overwhelm whatever pulpy grindhouse pleasures you might have experienced. A franchise that started off with a sense of betrayal and righteous anti-authoritarian anger ends by parroting authoritarian talking points that betray what this country is about.”

Justin Trudeau’s Red Face Over Brown Face By Charles Taylor

     The horrible politely politically correct creature, Canadian prime minister Justin Trudeau, has been called out for appearing dressed in black face, or brown face some years ago. This is ironic given his over the topness about everything multicultural. And, he has apologised, saying that he did not know what he was doing because of white privilege blah blah. Ok, we expected that. But something that no one online has yet commented on, and this is world exclusive here at the League of Rights news, is that Trudeau in the photograph seems to be engaged in inappropriate touching of one female, he has his arm around her, coming over her next getting dangerously close to her breasts, in fact touching the upper surface. That could be taken as rape by some radical feminists. He may not have got written permission for this intimate touching, and even if he did, radical feminists would say that that counts not. So politically correct people everywhere, go do what you do best!

Crucifixions on the Rise this Year By Peter Ewer

     The friendly people who give us all the oil have been busy this year:
  https://www.mirror.co.uk/news/world-news/saudi-arabia-executes-134-barbaric-20074793

“Barbaric crucifixions are on the rise in Saudi Arabia with 134 people executed already this year. A death penalty watchdog has revealed 'alarming' rise in state executions in the country - including crucifixions. A report claims more than 130 people have been executed this year already - with at least 24 more at "imminent" risk of execution, including three children. The skyrocketing number reportedly included at least six teens executed this year for "crimes" they were accused of carrying out as children. And the surge has come despite a pledge from Saudi Arabia's Crown Prince to reduce the use of the death penalty amid international disgust. The Death Penalty Project (DPP) watchdog's report on the executions says political figures, clerics and human rights defenders have been targeted, with individuals facing death for 'crimes' from expressing anti-government views on Facebook to bringing water to protesters. The report, presented to the 42nd session of the United Nations Human Rights Council over the weekend, urged world leaders to boycott Saudi Arabia's turn to host the G20 Summit next year. The DDP says global pressure must be applied to convince Saudi Arabia to uphold international human rights standards, and place a moratorium on any further death sentences and executions. The DPP's report highlighted that detainees are being tortured and face "grossly unfair" trials culminating in death sentences. Among the executions carried by the brutal regime highlighted in the report was a mass execution of 37 men on April 23. Most were members of Saudi Arabia's Shia minority, arrested over their participation in protests during the Arab Spring period, and tortured and convicted in sham mass trials.”

The British Supreme Court - A Power unto Itself

I must admit that there are things troubling me about the decision of the UK Supreme Court which held that the Queens proroguing of the British Parliament was void.

In the first instance, how can ‘advice’ in itself be considered to be unlawful?  Improper is one thing but unlawful is quite another particularly since it appears that the court was not aware of what that advice actually was or how it was worded.

Secondly, how is it possible for any court to then say that an Order of the Queen was null and void?

European Climate Declaration - There is no climate emergency, say 500 experts By Viv Forbes


AS THE LATEST U.N. climate summit begins in New York, a new, high-level global network of 500 prominent climate scientists and professionals has submitted a declaration that there is no “climate emergency”.

The group has sent a European Climate Declaration with a registered letter to António Guterres, Secretary-General of the United Nations.

Letter to POST newspaper

      As a former high school teacher and a mother I agree with Nevin Watson who made the point that our youth seem be led by emotion rather than facts. (Drowning islands - Emotion or sober facts? – POST August 24). Young people tend to see everything as either black or white and to believe whatever they are told, especially when the information is constantly being pushed by main-stream media.  It seems they are no longer taught to think and reason for themselves.  I also agree with Nevin that relentless misinformation needs a response.

British Westminster – A Sorry Tale

At no time in the modern history of the British Westminster parliament have we seen a government so pitted against its parliament and now the highest Court in the land.

A very basic chronology is:

The Cameron Conservative government held a referendum in June 2016 with 51.89% of votes cast to leave the European Union. David Cameron then stepped down and was replaced by Theresa May as Prime Minister.

Ms May was unable to secure a successful vote in the British parliament on any deal agreed to by the European Union because a number of Conservative MPs voted with Labour against all the proposals she put forward.  She resigned in June 2019 and was replaced by Boris Johnson the next month.

Unable to get backing from the parliament to leave the European Union without any deal, Boris Johnson then sought to prorogue the parliament for around five weeks until 14 October, two and a half weeks prior to the final exit date (from the EU) of 31 October.

Johnson then formally advised the Queen, by telephone, to prorogue parliament between the 9th to 12th September and to hold a Queen’s Speech on 14th October.  On 28th August, Mr Jacob Rees-Mogg, Leader of the House of Commons and Lord President of the Privy Council, Mr Mark Harper, chief whip, and Baroness Evans of Bowes Park, Leader of the House of Lords, attended a meeting of the Privy Council held by the Queen at Balmoral Castle resulting in an Order in Council proroguing the parliament between those dates.

9/11, From the “Off Guardian” By Chris Knight

     Here is a good site that raises issues that the mainstream press suppresses, but it appears to be fairly politically neutral, so it might be of use for introducing “normie” friends to our world, the world of real politics. The article below gives a common-sense introduction to the 9/11 conspiracy, with some good links. Two passenger jets allegedly hit WTC 1 & 2. If that is true, what caused WTC 3, 4, 5, 6 and 7 to self-destruct?
  https://off-guardian.org/2019/09/17/looking-at-the-9-11-false-flag-after-18-years/

I did not know that there were precious metals stored in WTC 4, and some speculate that a giant gold robbery occurred, a type of real world Goldfinger event.

Infinity Genders …Or, else By Mrs Vera West

     This is how bad it is getting, merely say in your school lesson that there are two genders, and the sky will fall in:
  https://www.rt.com/uk/462327-student-kicked-out-two-genders/

“A 17-year-old Scottish student claims he was told to leave his class after saying there are only “two genders” – a statement which earned him a reprimand from the teacher, whose reaction he secretly recorded on camera. The three-minute-long video shows the teacher at the Aberdeenshire secondary school explaining that he was asked to leave the class because his opinion on genders is “not very inclusive” and out of line with “national school authority policy.” The student then turns that argument on the 56-year-old teacher, telling him it’s also “not very inclusive” to prevent him from airing his own personal views on the subject. When the teen says that claims of more than two genders are “not scientific whatsoever,” the teacher tells him “not every policy is scientific.” As the debate heats up, the teacher tells the boy he was "clearly given an opportunity not to pursue" his point, but did so anyway. “Could you please keep that opinion to your own house? Not in this school,” the teacher asks. The verbal spat continues, with the student accusing the staff member of wasting 30 minutes of his time. The teacher then advises him to “make an official complaint.” I was simply saying there are two genders – male and female. Anything else is a personal identification,” the boy continues. ,Media reports said the teen had been disciplined for sharing the video online without consent, but not for its content. In a statement, a spokesperson for the Aberdeenshire Council told the Scottish Daily Mail that the video didn’t give the full context of the discussion. The council’s aim, he said, is to “foster good relations between those who have protected characteristics and those who don’t” and to support an “inclusive environment for all.”

Poop Shame? Meat and Toxic Masculinity By Mrs Vera West

     I am beating my own records today, coming across crazy items of political correctness that keep getting more insane. Women are apparently ashamed to use their bowels in the workplace because of … well … blame men!
  https://www.breitbart.com/politics/2019/09/18/nolte-new-york-times-blames-womens-workplace-poop-shame-on-men/

“The far-left New York Times required two reporters and around 1200 words to explore the horrors of the shame women feel about defecating on the job. Which can only mean one thing… What we have here is yet another example of the Times confusing the neurotic behavior of she-babies with an oppressive patriarchy. The article opens with these three anecdotes, all of which should be filed under First World Problems of the Emotionally Unstable:

Letter to The Editor - The failure of the Christian churches to bring their theology up to date

To The Australian         Barry Maley is right ("Germany's new leader to march across the map", 24/9). Failure to achieve Brexit will mean "the abandonment of 1,000 years of glorious history and liberty” for the British people and it will have happened as a result of massive deceit and coercion practised against their "quiet citizens" who value a traditional communal life based on "fellow feeling, fair dealing and honesty." Maley seems surprised that so many Remain partisans are unaware of the authoritarian overlordship being prepared by the EU leadership. Perhaps their blindness has been caused by a widespread falling into the worship of "false gods" such as climate change crusades and egalitarian policies. This in turn has occurred because of the largely hidden manipulative power of big money in few hands, together with the failure of the Christian churches to bring their theology up to date and thus be able to put up a proper fight.

Newsletter - Divide Britain

     (Own report) - Berlin's foreign policy is in support of Scottish nationalists, preparing to hold a second referendum to secede from the United Kingdom. Last week, Nicola Sturgeon, First Minister of the Scottish regional government and chairperson of the Scottish National Party (SNP), was received in the German capital for confidential talks with representatives of the German foreign policy establishment, including with Michael Roth (SPD), Minister of State in the Ministry of Foreign Affairs. Officially, the meetings were focused on the Brexit, bitterly opposed by Sturgeon and the Scottish nationalists. However, Sturgeon was, in fact, also pleading for support for her secessionist project and to bring Scotland, as an independent country into the EU. About three years ago, German government representatives had already been in support of this plan. However, a reliable Scottish majority, needed for this project, is nowhere in sight.
