The UFOs are Here Boys! By Brian Simpson

     Boy, do I love UFO stuff, little green men and flying sauces, all stuff from movies I watched in black and white on TV Saturdays! And it seems that the US military are as into this tin foil hat stuff as much I am. But they don’t want to spread the fun around, selfishly keeping all of the good stuff for themselves, until someone lets the cat, or is that alien, out of the bag?

The Flashing Lights of Alzheimer’s By Uncle Len, Who Sees Stars

     This article may be of interest to someone … no, me, and other sufferers of Alzheimer’s, or old-timer’s disease. You see it has something to do with light helping, but I can’t remember what:
  https://antiagingscience.news/2019-09-09-flashing-lights-and-pink-noise-may-prevent-alzheimers.html

“Researchers believe they have found a potential treatment for Alzheimer’s disease. Animal tests show that exposing mice to light flashes and sound pulses at the frequency of 40 hertz can reverse some of the symptoms of the neurodegenerative disease. Alzheimer’s disease continues to defy any attempt at treating it. Several pharmaceutical drugs help regulate a few of its cognitive symptoms, but they prove unable to halt or slow down the progression of the disease. Not one newly developed drug has achieved success in clinical trials. As a result, researchers are now studying non-pharmaceutical approaches. To test potential treatments, researchers created genetically altered mice models that exhibit symptoms similar to Alzheimer’s. Some produced tau protein tangles in their brains while others developed amyloid-beta plaques. Both formations are associated with the onset of Alzheimer’s disease. In addition to those hallmarks, the mice also exhibited a third symptom. Their brains generated gamma waves that oscillated between 30 and 100 times per second.

The Magic Migrants Come, But Do Not Leave By Richard Miller

     Here is a human-interest story that will warm the hearts of all lovers of migrants, multicults, diversity and political correctness. Imagine inviting folk into your home and they do not leave, but instead take over everything and dispossess you, leaving you homeless. Sounds mighty familiar …  now where did that happen?
  https://www.breitbart.com/europe/2019/07/05/woman-who-invited-migrants-her-garden-now-demands-they-leave/

“A Belgian woman who invited migrants to set up a makeshift camp in her garden now says she wants them to leave after incidents of aggression and violence. For nearly two and a half years the Simon-Hody family have allowed migrants wanting to travel to Britain to camp out in their garden in the town of Spy, but now, after a series of incidents, they say they no longer want them there, Sudinfo reports. The situation in the makeshift camp is said to have deteriorated so much that the family has stopped all aid to the migrants, saying that alcohol and violence led to the camp becoming more and more dangerous by the day, with one family member stating: “We did not feel safe anymore.”

California, the Evil State By Charles Taylor

     The devil is everywhere, but I believe, tends to “chill out” in whatever downtime he has, in California, which is no longer the world of the Beachboys …oh, that is long gone.
  https://hotair.com/archives/jazz-shaw/2019/09/15/california-adds-another-state-no-travel-list/

“Back in 2016, California passed a new law (Assembly Bill 1887) establishing a naughty list of states that don’t conform to their high moral standards. The bill created a travel ban, forbidding state-funded or endorsed travel to states that failed to provide “protections against discrimination based on sexual orientation, gender identity or gender expression.” They quickly began adding states to the list, including Texas, Oklahoma, Mississippi and Kentucky. (Clever readers are probably noticing a pattern already.) This week, California’s woke Attorney General, Xavier Becerra, broke out his sharpie and added another name to the list. This time it was Iowa, selected for failing to have Medicaid pay for transgender surgical procedures. (Sacramento Bee) Attorney General Xavier Becerra on Friday extended California’s ban on taxpayer-funded trips to an 11th state, adding Iowa to the list based on the Midwestern state’s passage of a law that removed gender protections under Medicaid. Becerra’s order means public employees and college students may not travel to Iowa under provisions of a 2016 California law. Twelve years ago, Iowa’s Legislature made gender identity a protected characteristic under its Civil Rights Act, which prohibited refusing service to or discriminating against people based on their gender identity preferences.”

UK Decay: Drugs for All By Richard Miller

     Living, if that is the word, in the UK, is like knowing that one has an incurable disease that will kill you, and you fill in your time, watching bits and pieces of your former healthy body fall of, or rot. Thus, while the conservatives are bad, the insane Labour Party is determined to push the boundaries of reality, with but one policy being legalising all drugs:
  https://www.independent.co.uk/news/uk/politics/labour-legalising-drugs-cannabis-heroin-cocaine-diane-abbott-david-lammy-a9106591.html

“A Labour government could reportedly consider legalising all drugs if it was recommended by royal commission. “There is nothing more important than preserving the life of our citizens," Diane Abbott, the shadow home secretary, told The Sunday Times. "Our current approach to drugs is simply not doing that." She said the party would "establish a royal commission to review independently all drugs legislation and policy to address related issues of public health." Labour would then follow its recommendations, if it suggested decriminalising some or all drugs including cocaine or heroin. Overdose prevention clinics - state run facilities where users could safely inject themselves - would also be considered, Ms Abbott told the newspaper. Data compiled by the European Monitoring Centre for Drugs and Drug Policy, showed that 8 per cent of young adults admitted to smoking cannabis over the last year in a 2017 study, while the number rose to 12.3 per cent in the UK. Meanwhile at 0.4 per cent, the Iberian country has a lower rate of high-risk opioid use among the population than the UK, where 0.8 per cent of people are affected. Labour MP David Lammy said he was pleased to see his party "commit to an evidence based approach on drug reform”. He added: “The war on drugs is funding gangs, fuelling crime, giving children easy access on social media and disproportionately criminalising working class young men.”

African Immigrants Appalled at the Africanisation of Italy By Richard Miller

     This is how bad it is, when the immigrants start complaining about immigrant’s race:
  https://www.courthousenews.com/immigrants-in-italy-we-did-not-come-here-to-live-in-africa/

“A beat-up car carrying African field workers turns off a country highway through this sunny landscape of vineyards and vegetable fields and heads onto a dirt road. They’re headed home to a shanty town where thousands of immigrants, refugees and asylum seekers live in a parallel world. There’s no signpost saying this place exists, so the car serves as a guide to reach it. The car bounces along, avoiding potholes, and goes from one dirt path to another across open grassy land. Then, the car turns onto a long straight strip of asphalt. It’s an abandoned landing strip behind a former air force base. Another beat-up car shows up and cruises down the strip too. Suddenly, a visitor is transported from southern Italy into a corner of impoverished Africa. To the side of the landing strip, a man tosses bags of garbage in the back of a moving truck onto the side of the air strip. This is apparently a dumping ground for the shanty town and there are other piles of waste and discarded items, from an old oven to broken chairs, lining the air strip. The ghetto then comes into view off to the right. It’s an extensive assemblage of shacks, caravans and makeshift structures – a kind of invisible town with an invisible population that lives off the grid, off the books and out of sight.

Now, Normalised Paedophilia By Mrs Vera West

     I have been predicting for some time now that the next big thing of the progressives would be to deconstruct, and normalise paedophilia, and there have been moves in the media to do so, careful ones, but that was how it was done in the gender agenda in the early 1960s. As usual, the universities are moving on this one:
  https://summit.news/2019/09/15/ohio-college-normalizes-pedophilia-as-a-sexual-orientation/

“San Diego State University is teaching students that pedophilia could merely be considered to be an alternative “sexual orientation.” “An actual topic we discussed in class today at a State University after watching an 8-minute Vice News video showcasing self-identified pedophiles. This is going to be mainstreamed,” tweeted Alex Mazzara. The photo shows a presentation slide entitled ‘Pedophilia as a Sexual Orientation’. It suggests that embracing pedophilia as an alternative sexual orientation could be part of the “acceptance of diverse sexual identities.” The VICE video showcasing pedophiles may well have been their platforming of Todd Nickerson, a self-confessed pedophile. VICE’s article about Nickerson sympathetically portrayed him, an individual who openly admits wanting to molest children, as a victim of right-wing “vigilantes”. Conservatives have been warning for years that the ultimate endgame of every fetish, gender identity and sexuality being not merely tolerated but endorsed would eventually be the mainstreaming of pedophilia.”

Look! Up in the Sky! It’s not a Bird! It’s Not a Plane! It is Super Mozzie! By Brian Simpson

     Who knows what crazy stuff is going on in genetic engineering labs, least of all the mad Dr Frankenstein scientists who lurk in their damp and dark corridors?
  https://www.zerohedge.com/health/brazil-experiment-may-have-accidentally-created-genetically-modified-super-mosquitos
  https://www.nature.com/articles/s41598-019-49660-6

“In an attempt to control the mosquito-borne diseases yellow fever, dengue, chikungunya, and Zika fevers, a strain of transgenically modified Aedes aegypti mosquitoes containing a dominant lethal gene has been developed by a commercial company, Oxitec Ltd. If lethality is complete, releasing this strain should only reduce population size and not affect the genetics of the target populations. Approximately 450 thousand males of this strain were released each week for 27 months in Jacobina, Bahia, Brazil. We genotyped the release strain and the target Jacobina population before releases began for >21,000 single nucleotide polymorphisms (SNPs). Genetic sampling from the target population six, 12, and 27–30 months after releases commenced provides clear evidence that portions of the transgenic strain genome have been incorporated into the target population. Evidently, rare viable hybrid offspring between the release strain and the Jacobina population are sufficiently robust to be able to reproduce in nature. The release strain was developed using a strain originally from Cuba, then outcrossed to a Mexican population. Thus, Jacobina Ae. aegypti are now a mix of three populations. It is unclear how this may affect disease transmission or affect other efforts to control these dangerous vectors. These results highlight the importance of having in place a genetic monitoring program during such releases to detect un-anticipated outcomes.”

Alternative Health as Terrorism By Mrs Vera West

     It all started with declaring those opposing the Great Replacement of whites as terrorists, and then it swept to conservative Christian sites, and now alternative health. The terrorism bit comes from the establishment view that all  Right (never Left) conspiracy theorists are terrorist, that is how the word is now defined. Such is the sweeping nature of totalitarianism, coming to a street near you:
  https://articles.mercola.com/sites/articles/archive/2019/09/17/pharmaceutical-industry-bad-reputation.aspx

“The pharmaceutical industry is now the most distrusted and poorly regarded industry in the U.S. This according to the latest Gallup Poll published September 3, 2019, which assesses Americans' views of 25 industry sectors on an annual basis. A mere 27% have a "totally positive" view of the drug industry, while 58% have a "totally negative" view; 15% are neutral. It's an unexpected turn of events, surely, as signs of growing distrust have become more readily evident. Big Pharma distrust was also blamed for "fueling the anti-vaxxer movement and playing a role in the measles outbreak" in an April 2019 article in USA Today. Quoted in the article, vaccine profiteer and patent holder Dr. Paul Offit also capitalizes on the recent revelation that the FBI now views conspiracy theories as a "significant domestic terrorism threat." "'In order to believe vaccines are hurting you means your doctor is lying to you,' Offit says. To believe that, 'on some level you have to be a conspiracy theorist' who believes the industry is 'directing the government and the health care industry to lie about vaccines.'" In other words, if you have doubts about vaccine safety and would like to see more evidence, you're a conspiracy theorist, placing you in the category of a domestic terrorist threat. At least that's what Offit would like you to think. The fact is, lies are being told about vaccines. As just one example, and an egregious one, in a January 2019 interview with CBS News, Dr. Anthony Fauci, director of the National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases (NIAID), flat-out denied that vaccines can cause injury or death. That is not only misinformation, it's an outright lie. Since 1988, the federally operated vaccine injury compensation program (VICP) created under the National Childhood Vaccine Injury Act of 1986 has paid out about $4 billion in awards to vaccine injured victims, and that's just 31% of the petitions filed for compensation.”

Tonga ready to fight over Israel Folau By Brent Read

     Tongan officials have armed themselves with legal advice that suggests the NRL is powerless to prevent them selecting Israel Folau to make a shock return to rugby league in Test matches against Great Britain and Australia next month. Folau, sacked by Rugby Australia earlier this year after a social media post declaring gays were destined to go to hell unless they repented, is understood to have spoken to his legal team in Melbourne over his ability to turn out for the Tongan rugby league side. The NRL was scrambling on Monday night to block Folau’s comeback after being caught off guard by a press release from the Tongan National Rugby League suggesting Folau and his brother John were ready to turn out for the Tongan national team, the Mate Ma’a. In a statement released through social media, TNRL­ chairman George Koloamatangi said the Folau brothers were set to play against Great Britain on October 26 and Australia one week later at Eden Park in Auckland. The statement also said neither player was available for the World Cup 9s tournament to be played in Sydney on October 19 because the event was controlled by the NRL. Australian Rugby League Commission chairman Peter Beattie and NRL chief executive Todd Greenberg have already made it clear Folau is not welcome back. Remarkably, both men are on the Rugby League International Federation and were unaware of Folau’s planned return.

Liberals Attack! By Ian Wilson LL.B

     It all began with the good old politically correct New York Times, publishing a hit piece 2.0 claiming that US Supreme Court Justice Brett Kavanaugh had sexually assaulted a female as a student. The allegations were first raised against The Kav by others,  when he was being assessed for fitness to serve on the bench, but these allegations proved to be groundless. Anyway, the NYT article’s ink had hardly dried of its 1s and 0s on the net, when every Leftist and their dog Marx, were barking for The Kav to be impeached. Having a conservative judge worries the Left as much as a conservative president. Only problem was that this story too began to fall apart, as the alleged victim did not remember the assault, and does not want to talk to the media. Still, the NYT went ahead with the false news story, and we can quote President Trump on that description.

“Headlined “Brett Kavanaugh Fit In With the Privileged Kids. She Did Not,” the story was primarily about Deborah Ramirez, a Connecticut woman who alleged that Kavanaugh, as a freshman at Yale in 1983, had pulled down his pants and thrust his penis at her. Kavanaugh has denied those claims. Yet the authors said they’d uncovered a similar story involving Kavanaugh at another freshman-year party, where he allegedly exposed himself and friends pushed his penis into the hands of a female student. The story said former classmate Max Stier reported the incident to the FBI and senators as Kavanaugh’s nomination was being discussed, but the story said Stier would not discuss it with the authors. Kavanaugh would not comment on the story, a court spokeswoman said Monday. After the story was posted online but before it was in the print edition, the Times revised the story to add that the book reported that the woman supposedly involved in the incident declined to be interviewed, and that her friends say she doesn’t recall the incident. While an editor’s note pointed out the revision, it did not say why those facts had been left out in the first place. A Times spokeswoman said no one was available for an interview on Monday. The Times’ deputy editorial page editor, James Dao, posted answers to readers’ question on the newspaper’s website Monday evening but did not address this issue. The failure to initially report that the woman did not remember the alleged incident “is one of the worst cases of journalistic malpractice in recent memory,” John McCormack wrote in the conservative magazine National Review. The Washington Post, detailing its own decision on the story, called into question the Times’ decision to run with the accusation in the first place. The Post said that last year it had independently confirmed that lawmakers and authorities knew of the second accusation against Kavanaugh, but did not write about it because the woman involved would not comment and the alleged witnesses were not identified.

Spectacularly Diverse Day Care Fraud By Peter Ewer

     Wow, this one has almost everything, and everybody, coming along for a fun Sunday drive, with cut lunches and kids, falling out of the car, as it strolls along:
  https://www.dailymail.co.uk/news/article-7459339/Police-working-Border-Force-Red-Rose-Day-Care-fraud-scam.html?ico=pushly-notifcation-small

“Police are working with the Department of Immigration after 39 people were charged over an alleged daycare fraud syndicate. Twenty-two mothers in south west Sydney were arrested and charged this week after 17 people were charged in May over the alleged rort. Police allege they took part in a huge childcare scam which gained $4million in just nine months. In a press conference on Thursday, Acting Assistant Commissioner of State Crime Command Stuart Smith said police were working with immigration. Police usually work with border protection when a suspect is a recent arrival whose alleged crimes may deny them the right to remain in the country. The man who allegedly masterminded the scam, Alee Farmann, is an Iraqi refugee.”

Would She Lie to You? By Paul Walker

     It reminds me of the comedy game show, Would I Lie to You … after the failure of banning guns in New Zealand, with few people willing to turn over their unregistered weapons, we have the political career of Jacinda Ardern under question because of this:
  https://www.dailymail.co.uk/news/article-7458607/New-Zealand-Prime-Minister-Jacinda-Ardern-forced-resign-sexual-assault-scandal.html?ico=pushly-notifcation-small
  https://www.nzherald.co.nz/nz/news/article.cfm?c_id=1&objectid=12267036

“A sexual assault allegation that rocked the New Zealand Labour party has tarnished Jacinda Ardern's reputation and led to speculation that she could be forced to quit as prime minister. A male Labour party staffer resigned after he was accused of assaulting a 19-year-old female volunteer and harassing other party members. The teenager told The Spinoff that she was pinned down and sexually assaulted by the man in 2018. Labour president Nigel Haworth also quit over the party's handling of the investigation. Ms Ardern said she was not aware of the sexual assault claim until it was published in the media - but opposition leader Simon Bridges has claimed she knew about it earlier than that. 'I think she knew. All very well, it may be that the president is in the wrong, but when you think about this, the prime minister, if you stand back and look at it, is ducking and diving accountability,' he told Newshub. You have this in the media and indeed her being interviewed about alleged sexual assaults for several weeks now... I think she knew and she is saying she didn't.' Mr Bridges said Mr Haworth was the 'fall guy' for Ms Ardern, and claimed the prime minister had 'done the least possible every step of the way - it's just wrong'. Political commentator Duncan Garner said Ms Ardern could be forced to stand down as prime minister. 'Ms Ardern has squandered a massive lead - like a racing car driver a lap ahead crashing into the side wall. I simply can't say with certainty if Ms Ardern is going to walk away from this mass pile up,' he wrote for Newshub. 'I can't rule out that she may be forced to resign as prime minister.'

Softbois of the World Unite, You Have Nothing to Lose but Your Brains! By John Steele

     Softbois, or spelling it out “Soft Boys,” (closely related to “Soy Boys”) is what many boys, I don’t call them men, are today, the product of a feminist society and testosterone destroying chemicals, and emasculated lifestyles.  Here the Left can explain it, since they helped create it:
  https://www.theguardian.com/lifeandstyle/2019/sep/05/softboi-what-is-it-instagram-q-and-a

“There’s a softboi spectrum. At one end, it’s just anyone who has any unique or alternative interests that make them feel superior to other people. At the other end is quite hardcore emotionally manipulative men who use these interests to really mess about with women or men. But there’s so many people in between on the spectrum so there’s no one real definition. What are three terms you’d use to describe a softboi? Alternative. Superiority complex. Emotionally exploitative. You can assign those qualities to a lot of people, but you’re saying it’s the alternativeness that gives the bois their soft edge? Yeah, exactly. Softbois have alternative interests and come across like they’re being very open about their emotions, which is a really good thing for men to do. But it then twists into “and you should therefore sleep with me because of this”. Another common thing with softbois is that they turn quite emotionally messed up when they get rejected. For example: one guy [featured on the account] messaged a girl on Tinder saying “don’t be sad life is wonderful”, and when she didn’t reply he wrote “lol you must be one of those emotionally distraught women who hasn’t figured out their purpose yet”.

The Cost of Cashless Welfare By Michael Ferguson

     No doubt about it, totalitarianism does not come cheap nowadays; the cashless welfare trial of the card on just 2,000 lab subjects, sorry, people, has already cost the haemorrhaging taxpayer, $ 18.9 million. Well, at first, I thought this was $ 189 million, and that would not have surprised me either; nothing surprises me anymore. Still, the system wants it because it is cashless, and can be used to smash the unemployed deplorables, whom the elite like to metaphorically hunt like those predator creatures in the movies of the same name:
  https://www.theguardian.com/australia-news/2017/may/02/cashless-welfare-card-trialled-for-fewer-than-2000-people-at-cost-of-up-to-189m
  https://www.abc.net.au/news/2017-05-02/cashless-welfare-trial-costing-taxpayers-$10k-per-participant/8488268

“The federal government is spending up to $18.9m to trial the cashless welfare card for fewer than 2,000 people. Data published by the Department of Social Services under freedom of information reveals that is the “estimated maximum” cost of the trial. The trial involves about 1,850 people, according to the most recent evaluation, published in February, although it had about 2,000 participants in October. The program has cost the department $2.6m in administration costs and the private firm providing the cards, Indue, is on a $7.9m contract. The government has paid $1m and $1.6m for wrap-around support services in Ceduna (South Australia) and the East Kimberley respectively. The Australian Council of Social Service said the government was continuing the program at an extraordinary cost, despite the lack of reliable evidence of its effectiveness. Its chief executive, Cassandra Goldie, said the money should be diverted to investing in proven support services. “The cashless debit card costs around $10,000 a year per participant to administer, when the person themselves is receiving a meagre $14,000 a year in Newstart payments. How on earth is this good value?” Goldie said.”

Chinese-Style Face Recognition Coming Here By James Reed

     Soon the government will be able to recognise your beautiful face everywhere, maybe in places where you have not even gone, such as crime scenes:
  https://www.9news.com.au/national/a-current-affair-facial-recognition-technology-australia-surveillance/ee91eacf-1c6c-4a1d-bba9-0d400984217c

“Privacy advocates have issued a warning about a new proposed government facial recognition database, saying: "This changes the nature of the world we're in." Dubbed "The Capability", the system would match images of people captured on CCTV with their driver's license and passport photos. The database could be shared with government agencies, police and anti-corruption agencies and, in some cases, private organisations. "They're going to use this database with face recognition to be able to pick people out so you'll be able to take CCTV footage and be able to automatically identify people," Professor Toby Walsh, from the University of New South Wales, told A Current Affair. "The government hasn't shown itself to be too competent at looking after our data and if bad actors are out there they could use that data for whatever purposes." Professor Walsh is an expert in artificial intelligence, and told A Current Affair the technology is similar to surveillance software used in China. The cameras are the back-bone of the country's "social credit system" which awards or deducts points depending on a citizen's behaviour. If a person's rating gets too low, they could be prevented from doing everyday activities like catching the train or flying.”

So Much for a Bill of Rights By John Steele

     I recently criticised an article by leading neo-masculinity/barbarianism writer, Jack Donovan, where he argued that all one can really advocate in US post politics now is support for the US Bill of Rights. Well, so much the worse for Australia, England and other countries without one, and even having one does not mean much, as recent article expressed:
  https://www.zerohedge.com/political/bill-rights-turns-230-and-what-do-we-have-show-it-nothing-good

“It’s been 230 years since James Madison drafted the Bill of Rights - the first ten amendments to the Constitution - as a means of protecting the people against government tyranny, and what do we have to show for it?
Nothing good. In America today, the government does whatever it wants, freedom be damned. We can pretend that the Constitution, which was written to hold the government accountable, is still our governing document, but the reality of life in the American police state tells a different story. “We the people” have been terrorized, traumatized, and tricked into a semi-permanent state of compliance by a government that cares nothing for our lives or our liberties. The bogeyman’s names and faces have changed over time (terrorism, the war on drugs, illegal immigration, etc.), but the end result remains the same: in the so-called named of national security, the Constitution has been steadily chipped away at, undermined, eroded, whittled down, and generally discarded to such an extent that what we are left with today is but a shadow of the robust document adopted more than two centuries ago. Most of the damage has been inflicted upon the Bill of Rights. A recitation of the Bill of Rights—set against a backdrop of government surveillance, militarized police, SWAT team raids, asset forfeiture, eminent domain, overcriminalization, armed surveillance drones, whole body scanners, stop and frisk searches (all sanctioned by Congress, the White House, the courts and the like)—would understandably sound more like a eulogy to freedoms lost than an affirmation of rights we truly possess.
