Japan and the Sterilisation of Transgender People By Mrs Vera West

     With all of the sad news around at the moment, I am sorry to report on this real shocker, coming from Japan, which is not a “white” country, but race, and even colour does not exist, just like gender and sex which are pure social constructions, but the Japanese have not caught on to this yet:
  https://www.economist.com/asia/2019/03/16/japan-says-transgender-people-must-be-sterilised?utm_source=amerika.org&ito=amerika.org&fbclid=amerika.org

“Should transgender people be sterilised before they are recognised? Earlier this year Japan’s Supreme Court decided that the answer is yes. Takakito Usui, a transgender man (i.e., someone who was born female but identifies as male), had sued over a requirement that, to be officially designated a man, he has to have his ovaries and uterus removed (as well as have surgery to make his genitals look male, be over 20, single, have no minor children and have been diagnosed as suffering from “gender-identity disorder”). He argued that all this violated his right to self-determination and was therefore unconstitutional. The court disagreed. Human-rights groups say demanding irreversible surgery is outrageous. Although several Asian countries, including South Korea, have similar laws, Western countries that once also used to require sterilisation, such as Norway, France and Sweden, no longer do. In 2017 the European Court of Human Rights called for the change in all 47 countries under its jurisdiction. Sweden has started to compensate transgender people who underwent mandatory sterilisation.”

Climate Change Protests and De-Civilisation By James Reed

     The kiddies took time off from school to protest about the impending apocalypse from climate change. But, I meant to say, with all the work by sociologists saying that something like race does not exist, and we can see it in front of us as we walk fearfully down the street, who says that climate even exists, beyond being a socio-theoretic construction? (Thanks to Mrs West for this week’s theme.) How then can there be real climate change in our sociology-based world? Surely nothing is real to start off with beyond “SOCIETY,” globocommo’s equivalent of God in this postmodern cesspool. Anyway, another angle on all of this has been given in extracts from an amazing, “tremendous” (as Eric Butler would have said), article on the climate protests:

‘Climate action’ is brutal austerity
The following release is from an article by Jeremy Beck, printed in the 20 February 2019 Australian Alert Service.
School children who plan to skip class again for “climate action” on 15 March likely think they’re part of a grassroots movement to save the environment. They are actually endorsing brutal forms of economic austerity and de-industrialisation under a green cover. The global propaganda network pushing this agenda, financed by many of the world’s billionaires, is the same City of London/Wall Street oligarchy which told us privatised electricity markets would introduce competition and lower prices. Now we’re told more “renewables” will help stop climate change. The big-business-funded Grattan Institute in its latest 54-page report, “Keep calm and carry on”, insists Australia should keep expanding “renewables”, and Australia’s establishment media has promoted its erroneous conclusions. Meanwhile global emissions of so-called greenhouse gases continue to rise, while China’s coal production in 2018 reached 3.55 billion tonnes, rising 5.2 per cent year on year.

Amazon’s Amazing Tax Bill: Nothing! By Brian Simpson

     The capitalist/corporate communist system has been set up so the big players pay no tax at all. Look at Amazon:
  https://news.yahoo.com/amazon-taxes-zero-180337770.html?fbclid=IwAR1O4vF_KQjrk2odgechveIMdedtvmdFx37jfZa6l8md3QgbISfVpbjcnOk

“While some people have received some surprise tax bills when filing their returns, corporations continue to avoid paying tax — thanks to a cocktail of tax credits, loopholes, and exemptions. According to a report from the Institute on Taxation and Economic Policy (ITEP), Amazon (AMZN) will pay nothing in federal income taxes for the second year in a row. Thanks to the new Tax Cuts and Jobs Act (TCJA), Amazon’s federal tax responsibility is 21% (down from 35% in previous years). But with the help of tax breaks, according to corporate filings, Amazon won’t be paying a dime to Uncle Sam despite posting more than $11.2 billion in profits in 2018. How is that possible?

Soon Even Babies Will Vote for Labor By James Reed

     While the Americans are working their electoral system so that illegals will vote, and run the show, creating even more illegals, here in Australia, the Greens and Labor want babies to vote, maybe even embryos! (Question: would aborted foetuses be able to vote before being killed under this scheme!) Well, almost:

For far too long, politics has failed to properly represent young people or the issues we care about. There are many within this place and beyond who think young people don't care about our world or haven't earned the right to participate in our society from a perceived lack of experience or maturity. There are those who do not or cannot look to the future and, for that reason, see young people as a threat. In fact, many in this place see the disengagement of my generation from politics as politically convenient, even ideal. Young people need some political capital. Young people need some leverage.

The Great Generation VS the Green Generation By Viv Forbes

20 March 2019, My grandfather was part of the Great Generation. Toughened by wars and depression they were patriotic nation builders.

     Their monuments are long-term productive assets like the Mount Isa and Broken Hill mines, smelters and refineries, the Wollongong Steelworks, the Sydney Harbour Bridge, the transcontinental railway, the overland telegraph line, the Yallourn coal mines and Power stations, the Renison and Mt Lyell mines and railways, the Kalgoorlie Goldfields, the Weipa and Gladstone bauxite industries, Pilbara Iron, the Perth-Kalgoorlie pipeline, the Kidman Cattle Empire, the world’s biggest merino flock, QANTAS, the Holden car, the Sunshine Harvester and a network of roads, railways, towns, power lines, ports and airports. They survived floods, droughts, bushfires and plagues of mice, rabbits, locusts and prickly pear to develop an agricultural industry that provides food and fibre for millions of consumers. They welcomed boat-loads of hard working migrants from many countries to farms and factories and celebrated the arrival of “clean coal energy by wire” to every home. They created parks and planted forests for timber and paper.

Mums Making Porn! What! What! By Mrs Vera West, the Disgusted Granny

     This one must surely win the absurd story of the week prize for me, yet again. In fact, as long as this contest has been running, for a few weeks now, I forget how long, I have won. That comes from spending long hours on the internet, selecting only the juiciest, most succulent and fresh fish …  I mean stories, for your taste buds. Like this one, about a group of mothers so disgusted with online porn that their kiddies were watching, that rather than trying to ban such porn, or talk to their kids, they decided to make wholesome porn. Just like home style cooking, I suppose, only putrid:
  https://www.dailymail.co.uk/news/article-6796717/Mothers-make-X-rated-film-theyd-happy-CHILDREN-watch.html

“A group of five mothers were so disgusted by porn they found online they decided to make their own X-rated film that they would be happy to show their children. The women made their adult movie as part of a Channel 4 TV show called Mums Make Porn. Although they didn't star in the video themselves, they helped direct and produce it in a bid to create porn that is realistic and promotes positive attitudes towards sex. The three-part series follows their journey into the adult entertainment industry, which sees one mother so distressed by internet porn she quits the project altogether. One mother is reduced to tears by the violent, rape-based content they find and another throws up. At the end of the programme the women show the video to their children. Sarah Louise is a mother-of-six and works as a beautician in Bolton. As part of their research, she and her fellow participants were made to watch adult films based on violence, female submission and rape. The salon owner was so disturbed by what she had watched that she vomited. Sarah, 40, a wedding photographer from North Wales, cried while watching rape-based content during the mothers' research portion of the show.

The Dispossession of Middle America; Australia, You are Next! By Chris Knight

     This article by Pat Buchanan, has been reproduced on many sites, and it is instructive even for Australians to learn how America finally dies, because it is going to turn our world here in Australia, and the rest of the West, as our world is turned upside down, or is it just, Chinese?
  https://buchanan.org/blog/how-middle-america-is-to-be-dispossessed-136645

“In all but one of the last seven presidential elections, Republicans lost the popular vote. George W. Bush and Donald Trump won only by capturing narrow majorities in the Electoral College. Hence the grand strategy of the left: to enlarge and alter the U.S. electorate so as to put victory as far out of reach for national Republicans as it is today for California Republicans, and to convert the GOP into America’s permanent minority party.
In the Golden State, Democrats control the governors’ chair, every elective state office, both U.S. Senate seats, 46 of 53 U.S. House seats and three-fourths of each house of the state legislature in Sacramento.
How does the left expect to permanently dispossess Middle America? Let us count the ways.

What is happening in the US is Set to Happen in Oz: Labor Wrecking Ball A-coming By James Reed

     Our journalists have been devoting much time to covering the US and European crises, as Australia in a globalised world, controlled by the same Dark Lords of Mordor, is not immune to the destructive effects created by globalist policies. Take the Labor policy on refugees for example, which will put us back into the same old problems of the past:
  https://www.sbs.com.au/news/morrison-says-labor-s-plan-to-boost-refugee-intake-would-cost-6-billion

“The government has accused the opposition of planning to spend more on increasing Australia's refugee intake than a fund to drought-proof the country. Following a trip to Christmas Island to show off the reopened detention centre, Prime Minister Scott Morrison has continued his attack on Labor over border security, seizing on Finance Department figures on their refugee policy. The figures show the cost of increasing the annual humanitarian intake by 13,000 refugees by 2025 would cost $6.2 billion over 10 years. "Labor need to be upfront about the cost of their policy to significantly increase our refugee intake, Mr Morrison said in a statement. "$6.2 billion is a lot of money and we need to weigh that against other priorities that matter to Australians."

In Praise of Robo-Journalism By Brian Simpson

     I welcome, in a near-nihilistic fashion, that the rise of robots will eliminate the jobs of many of our enemies. Take journalists for example; while this site would be hard-pressed to programme a robot to write the nonsense that I write, that is not so for mainstream journalism, which is essentially mechanical bs that would be perfectly replicable by a machine, since the people writing it now are no more than meat machines, soulless and evil:
  https://sg.news.yahoo.com/robo-journalism-gains-traction-shifting-media-landscape-014451181.html

“A text-generating "bot" nicknamed Tobi produced nearly 40,000 news stories about the results of the November 2018 elections in Switzerland for the media giant Tamedia -- in just five minutes. These kinds of artificial intelligence programs -- available for nearly a decade -- are becoming more widespread as news organizations turn to them to produce stories, personalize news delivery and in some cases sift through data to find important news. Tobi wrote on vote results for each of Switzerland's 2,222 municipalities, in both French and German, for the country's largest media group, according to a paper presented last month at the Computation + Journalism conference in Miami. A similar automated program called Heliograf has enabled The Washington Post daily to cover some 500 election races, along with local sports and business, since 2014. "We've seen a greater acceptance of the potential for artificial intelligence, or robo-journalism, in newsrooms around the world," said Damian Radcliffe, a University of Oregon professor who follows consumer trends and business models for journalism. "These systems can offer speed and accuracy and potentially support the realities of smaller newsrooms and the time pressures of journalists."

The Shape of Progressive Gymnastics By the Angry Granny, Mrs Vera West

     Right, let’s get to it in rounding up this week’s leading news items in the theatre of the absurd, or should I say, gymnastics?
  https://www.dailymail.co.uk/news/article-6791187/Now-girl-gymnasts-share-changing-rooms-boys-identify-female.html

“Female gymnasts of all ages at thousands of British clubs must now use the same changing facilities and toilets as males who identify as female, following a ruling by the sport’s governing body. Women and girls travelling to official competitions have also been told they must share accommodation with boys and men who identify as female. Controversially, the edict by British Gymnastics, which has a membership of more than 350,000 – the vast majority of whom are under 16 – bans coaches from telling parents their daughter is sharing a room with a boy who has declared themself as female. It adds that anyone ‘unhappy’ with the new rules must make their own ‘alternative arrangements’. It is unclear whether males who identify as females will be allowed to share showers with female gymnasts. There has been a furious backlash from parents, who say the organisation’s transgender policy – introduced after advice from transgender campaigners – puts their daughters’ safety at risk. In a further ruling, boys and men who identify as female are allowed to participate in female-only competitions.

Diversity and the Rule of Law By Chris Knight

     Can we blame him? The illegal migrant who murdered Mollie Tibbets wants his trial moved to a more ethnically diverse area with more of his tribe, so, he gets “justice.” Sounds sensible enough; just ask O J Simpson about this tribal strategy, which worked well for him:
  https://www.foxnews.com/us/mollie-tibbetts-accused-killer-wants-trial-moved-to-different-county-due-to-minority-population

“An illegal immigrant charged in the murder of Mollie Tibbetts, a University of Iowa student found dead in August, requested his trial to be moved to a more diverse county in the state so his jury pool has more minority representation. Cristhian Bahena Rivera’s attorneys filed the motion Friday, arguing that existing tensions and opinions in Poweshiek County — which is the area where the crime occurred, Tibbetts grew up and Rivera lived and worked at a dairy farm — will make it hard to have a “fair and impartial trial,” the Des Moines Register reported. The attorneys asked the court to select a county that has more of a minority representation for the jury pool. "Without venue where a minority population is substantially represented, [Rivera] cannot be fairly tried and any jury pool chosen will have to be stricken," the motion reads.”

Are Insects Doomed? By Brian Simpson

     Insects may be doomed:
  https://www.ctvnews.ca/sci-tech/insects-could-disappear-all-at-the-same-time-scientist-1.4302616

“A new research paper has come to the startling conclusion that without changes to the way we produce our food, “insects as a whole will go down the path of extinction in a few decades.” The review published in the journal Biological Conservation looked at 73 studies that measured the prevalence of insects, mostly in North America and Europe. They calculated that populations are declining at an average rate of 2.5 per cent annually.
Examples of the studies included are a 27-year-long study in Germany that found a 76 per cent decline in flying insect biomass and a 36-year-long study in Puerto Rican rainforests that found losses of 98 per cent of ground-foraging and 78 per cent of canopy-dwelling arthropods. Study co-author Francisco Sanchez-Bayo, an ecologist at the University of Sydney in Australia, told CTV News Channel on Monday that we could lose insects “all at the same time.”

Exposing Ethnic Diversity and Social Trust By Brian Simpson

     Here is another academic article offering some criticisms of the leading cult of diversity that rules the mind of the West:
  https://journals.sagepub.com/doi/abs/10.1177/0003122415577989

“We argue that residential exposure to ethnic diversity reduces social trust. Previous within-country analyses of the relationship between contextual ethnic diversity and trust have been conducted at higher levels of aggregation, thus ignoring substantial variation in actual exposure to ethnic diversity. In contrast, we analyze how ethnic diversity of the immediate micro-context—where interethnic exposure is inevitable—affects trust. We do this using Danish survey data linked with register-based data, which enables us to obtain precise measures of the ethnic diversity of each individual’s residential surroundings. We focus on contextual diversity within a radius of 80 meters of a given individual, but we also compare the effect in the micro-context to the impact of diversity in more aggregate contexts. Our results show that ethnic diversity in the micro-context affects trust negatively, whereas the effect vanishes in larger contextual units. This supports the conjecture that interethnic exposure underlies the negative relationship between ethnic diversity in residential contexts and social trust.”

AOC Excited about Humans Going on the Scrap Heap By Chris Knight

     Leading the new wave of elected socialist, if not outright communists, is Hispanic Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez:
  https://www.breitbart.com/politics/2019/03/09/ocasio-cortez-people-should-be-excited-about-automation/

“Appearing at the SXSW conference Saturday, Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-NY) said people should be excited by the prospect of robots taking their jobs because it will afford them more time to pursue their creative passions. Ocasio-Cortez speculated fears over automation stem from a lack of financial safety net and economic uncertainty. “We should not be haunted by the specter of being automated out of work,” the self-avowed democrat-socialist said, according to Fast Company. “We should not feel nervous about the tollbooth collector not having to collect tolls. We should be excited by that. But the reason we’re not excited about it is because we live in a society where if you don’t have a job, you are left to die.”

The Limits of Peterson By John Steele

     Some insightful comments by martial arts/cultural dissent James LaFond who runs a pretty much adult site, but there are still many good things to be distilled for less robust folk. Like this comment on the social significance of Jordan Peterson:

“Sir, here is a recent link sent by Riley, which I think demonstrates the usefulness of shills like Peterson and Molynuex, creatures who seem like ghosts discussing the viability of the human soul they are a mere caricature of, but nevertheless serve as a potential gateway from the rationalized feminine into the rational male and thence hopefully to the masculine—though both will always balk at a purely masculine perspective. I see them as Andy prototypes for the future, scrubbed of testosterone and estrogen and used as counselors to the crazed remnants of insipid humanity. Your case is well enough stated that I need not add to it and will only restate that the Peterson Bot's reasoning mechanics have provided me with useful thought exercises, namely in finding my point of transcendent moral departure from his mechanistic doctrine of human ascendency to godhood. A good friend of mine has mentioned how the man's mere gnomish voice is enough to dispel any notion that he represents the masculine in any case beyond considering it as a reference for certain social mechanics.”

Facebook to Ban Everything (Just to be Sure) By Mrs Vera West

     It started with those questioning the system on the race and immigration issues, then it went to banning critics of feminism and pick up artists, and now it is all systems go, as anti-vaxxers and others get the chop:
  https://www.cbsnews.com/news/facebook-announces-plans-to-block-anti-vaccination-content/

“Facebook is cracking down on the spread of vaccine misinformation, the company announced Thursday. The changes come as tech giants are facing criticism for their role in disseminating false medical information in the wake of a massive measles outbreak in the Pacific Northwest in January. Facebook will now de-prioritize medical myths across the platform, taking action against verifiable vaccine hoaxes, the company said. Misinformation will now appear less frequently in News Feeds, both public and private pages and groups, search predictions and recommendations, according to Facebook. "We are working to tackle vaccine misinformation on Facebook by reducing its distribution and providing people with authoritative information on the topic," Monika Bickert, VP, Global Policy Management, said in a statement. Facebook also says it will start rejecting ads that include vaccine misinformation and disable ad accounts that violate its policies. "Leading global health organizations, such as the World Health Organization and the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, have publicly identified verifiable vaccine hoaxes. If these vaccine hoaxes appear on Facebook, we will take action against them," Bickert said. Facebook will also share education information about vaccines to people who have uncovered misinformation. "We also believe in providing people with additional context so they can decide whether to read, share, or engage in conversations about information they see on Facebook," Bickert said. "We are exploring ways to give people more accurate information from expert organizations about vaccines at the top of results for related searches, on Pages discussing the topic, and on invitations to join groups about the topic."

A Drop of Wisdom on International Womyn’s’ Day By Mrs Vera West

     I could not find any one convenient reference for this, but the photographs from across the world, show numerus marches with the typical feminist ideologies, abortion, men are bad, more abortions, men are worse, total abortions, let’s kill all men! Surely I am joking for the purposes of satire and entertainment? Well, almost, for Scott Morrison (who’s he?) had something to say about this, in almost a masculine kind of way:
  https://www.theguardian.com/world/2019/mar/08/scott-morrison-wants-women-to-rise-but-not-solely-at-expense-of-others

“Scott Morrison has suggested that women’s advancement should not come at the expense of men, in an address to mark International Women’s Day. Speaking to the Chamber of Minerals and Energy in Western Australia on Friday, Morrison said the Liberal party wanted women to rise but did not “want to see women rise only on the basis of others doing worse”. The prime minister’s comments echo remarks by the minister for women, Kelly O’Dwyer, at the National Press Club in November, rejecting the view that “girls doing well must mean that boys do badly”. Morrison said O’Dwyer’s message was that “gender equality isn’t about pitting girls against boys”. “See, we’re not about setting Australians against each other, trying to push some down to lift others up,” he said.

Letter to The Editor - Our own self-esteem depends considerably on the dignity of the mother country

To The Age         Eurosceptics in the UK House of Commons should resist last minute attempts to coerce them into voting for Mrs May's pseudo-Brexit deal ("Resistance to 'rubbish' plan softens", 18/3). They should recall how the Irish got their constitutional freedom by not compromising with their fatally tainted British overlords. What is now needed at Westminster is the unyielding integrity that was shown a century ago by Eamon de Valera and Daniel Mannix.   It's surprising how little public discussion there is in Australia about the ongoing betrayal of the British people by politicians and the UK establishment. Our own self-esteem depends considerably on the dignity of the mother country; and the sabotage of Brexit is a wound in our own national soul.
