The Comic Book Attack on Jesus By Chris Knight

     There is apparently a comic attacking Jesus, by portraying him as fighting with a sword, beheading people. Apparently, nothing about driving the money changers out of the temple with whip though. Anyway, I saw this story with a good summary, which makes a general moral about the decline of the West:

“Joe Casey and Benjamin Marra no doubt think of themselves as cool, edgy, and courageous, unafraid to incur charges of blasphemy from furious Christians. In fact, they’re banking on those charges: “Reports say the publisher is banking on blasphemy protests to propel sales.” This is part of the West’s cultural suicide. It’s cool, edgy and courageous to hate one’s own culture, history, and civilization, and to mock and defame its central figures. But Casey and Marra are unlikely to be as courageous when it comes to a religious figure who actually did behead his enemies. Muhammad, according to his first biographer Ibn Ishaq, beheaded between 600 and 900 men of the Jewish Qurayzah tribe after the Battle of the Trench. Will Casey and Marra publish a graphic novel about Muhammad? Not on your life. Not only would that not be courageous in the eyes of their peers, it would be “hateful” and “Islamophobic,” even if it contained accurate material drawn from Islamic sources.”

The Cannabis Curriculum By James Reed

     Thanks to Mrs West for emailing me this one, which while dealing with health issues shows once more the insanity of he universities. Yes, now there are courses on dope:

“Grace DeNoya is used to getting snickers when people learn she’s majoring in marijuana. “My friends make good-natured jokes about getting a degree in weed,” said DeNoya, one of the first students in a new four-year degree program in medicinal plant chemistry at Northern Michigan University. “I say, ‘No, it’s a serious degree, a chemistry degree first and foremost. It’s hard work. Organic chemistry is a bear.’” As a green gold rush in legal marijuana and its non-drug cousin hemp spreads across North America, a growing number of colleges are adding cannabis to the curriculum to prepare graduates for careers cultivating, researching, analyzing and marketing the herb. Research shows there are high times ahead for all kinds of careers in cannabis , ranging from greenhouse and dispensary operators to edible product developers, marketing specialists, quality assurance lab directors and pharmaceutical researchers. Arcview Market Research, which focuses on cannabis industry trends, projects the industry will support 467,000 jobs by 2022. And even in states where recreational marijuana remains illegal, including New York, New Jersey and Connecticut, some colleges have launched cannabis studies programs in anticipation of legalization or to prepare students for jobs in other states.

The Philippines is Not Worth War with China By James Reed

     The president of the Philippines, Rodrigo Duterte, wants to change the name of the country to something like “Maharlika,” because of, well, imperialism, colonialism and all that jazz, as the country was named after King Philip of Spain. Ok, they want to cut ties with the West. Fine, but why should the United States therefore have to defend these fellows from China?

“As President Trump flew home from his Hanoi summit with Kim Jong Un, Mike Pompeo peeled off and flew to Manila. And there the Secretary of State made a startling declaration. Any armed attack by China on a Philippine ship or plane in the South China Sea, he told the Philippine government, will be treated as an attack on an American ship or plane, bringing a U.S. military response. “China’s island building and military activities in the South China Sea threaten your sovereignty, security and, therefore, economic livelihood, as well as that of the United States,” said Pompeo. “As the South China Sea is part of the Pacific, any armed attack on Philippine forces, aircraft or public vessels in the South China Sea will trigger mutual defense obligations under article 4 of our mutual defense treaty.”

Under Labor There will be No More Labour! Abortion Clinics on (Almost) Every Street Corner!! By Mrs Vera West

     No, not false news, only a metaphorical flourish from an increasingly exasperated old girl. But it is almost correct, as Labor, when they inevitably get in, as the sheeples turn with disgust from the Libs, will ensure that public hospitals provide free abortions. Apparently, there are not enough abortions now, and access must be made even easier than it already is:

“Public hospitals will have to consistently offer abortion services as part of commonwealth funding agreements under a federal Labor government. If it wins the upcoming election, the party would also build a new Tasmanian reproductive health hub so women don't have to travel interstate for abortions and other medical care. And it would look at making sure the contraceptive pill, long-acting removable contraceptives, and medical terminations are more widely available to Australian women. Deputy Labor leader Tanya Plibersek said every Australian woman should be able to access health services in the place and time they need them. At the moment, there is a patchwork of service provision, with some women turned away from public hospitals when they need to end a pregnancy and then not being able to access or afford to go to a private clinic, or having to travel hundreds of kilometres for care. "Choosing to terminate a pregnancy is difficult enough," Ms Plibersek said on Wednesday.””

Green New Genocide By James Reed

     Boy, do I hate environmentalists. Not the old school who loved nature and saved wildernesses, but these new socialist types, like flavour of the month US Senator Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (AOC). Her Green New Deal to deal with the myth of climate change, will involve basically dismantling the entire economy and killing all Americans, which, I suppose does achieve some reduction in carbon creation! Anyway, even the co-founder of Greenpeace has mocked her:

“Patrick Moore, the co-founder of Greenpeace who left the organization he said has been “hijacked by eco-fascists,’ weighed in on Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez’s Green New Deal resolution calling her a “pompous little twit” on social media.

Aborting to Save the World By Mrs Vera West

     In this week’s contest between journalists for the craziest politically correct libtard article of the week, my contribution is the one about the woman who had an abortion to save the world! Wow, tell that to the Africans where the average number of children a woman has, in some regions is 5, and even Billy Gates is worried about this population explosion, conspiracies aside.

“Actress-turned-activist Rose McGowan claimed that she had an abortion when she was younger so she could “change the world” instead of raising a child. “I have had an abortion and I support this message,” Rose McGowan said in a social media post about abortion. “I am not ashamed, nor should you be. That 60% of those who choose to have abortions are already mothers says a lot- they understand more than anyone. I was on birth control and it failed. I realized I could not bring a child into my world and simultaneously change the world,” she added.

Trump Finally Attacks the Universities, The Source of Almost all Evil By James Reed

     As long-term readers would know, I have been championing a campaign the close down the universities for some years now. Sometimes it seems that someone is listening. Why, I even wrote to the White House to see if President Trump would do anything, such as cut funding to starve the cancer. I did not get a reply, but maybe someone in the office got the idea and passed it on:

“Upset that conservatives continue to be silenced, banned, and even attacked on America’s increasingly Left-wing college campuses, POTUS Donald Trump said on Saturday he’s prepared to fire a financial warning shot across their bows. Speaking to a packed, enthusiastic crowd at the annual Conservative Political Action Conference in Maryland, the president said he was preparing to sign an executive order denying federal funds to any college or university that did not protect all students’ First Amendment rights to free speech. “Today I am proud to announce that I will be very soon signing an executive order requiring colleges and universities to support free speech if they want federal research dollars,” the president said after bringing Hayden Williams on stage with him, who was sucker punched by a Left-wing activist at the University of California-Berkeley last month. As reported by The National Sentinel, police at UC-Berkley arrested Zachary Greenberg, 28, about 1 p.m. Friday after a judge issued an arrest warrant for the February 19 attack on Williams, 26. Several videos of the attack show Greenberg verbally berating Williams before punching him in the face, then physically assaulting him.

The Money People Always Put Locals after Migrants By Chris Knight

     Apart from being a failure and a traitor to his election promises, President Donald Duck Trump is revealing his true agenda, much like the liberal prime ministers in Australia have constantly done, from Menzies on, and that is to swamp and demographically transform Western societies by unending mass immigration. The White Australia Policy, for example was long opposed in semi-secret by the majority of the Labor and Liberal Parties before it was abandoned by the Liberals in 1965, by stealth. Such changes do not happen over night and are the results of perfidy. That does not matter much now, since we have to move beyond the old nationalist conceptual framework of “save Australia” or conserve it, as there is little left to conserve, or will be once this battle has been done.  Here is some good US material attacking Trump’s illegal immigration mania:

“Trump’s shift from a wage-boosting legal immigration system to one that benefits corporations and their shareholders coincides with recent big business lobby influence over his White House, at the behest of advisers Jared Kushner and Brooke Rollins. As Breitbart News reported, an alliance of mostly globalist organizations and business groups have had access to the White House to discuss the national legal immigration policy. These groups include Koch Industries, the George W. Bush Center, the U.S. Chamber of Commerce, and the League of United Latin American Citizens (LULAC). Increasing legal immigration would cut the job prospects of the at least 13 million working-age Americans who are either unemployed, not in the labor force but want a job, or who are working part-time jobs but want a good-paying full-time job. Out of those 13 million Americans who are available for U.S. jobs, about 6.5 million are unemployed. Of those unemployed, close to 13 percent are American teenagers who are ready for entry-level U.S. jobs — the exact jobs that low-skilled foreign workers generally tend to take. About 1.6 million Americans are not in the labor force at all, but they want a job, including about 426,000 discouraged American workers who are demoralized by their job prospects. Also, there are 5.1 million Americans who are working part-time jobs but who want full-time jobs. More than 1.4 million of these U.S. part-time workers said they had looked for full-time jobs but could not find any.

More on the Poison of Television, the Plug in Drug By Mrs Vera West

     The lead article in this week’s On Target is by Arnie and Beata Luks on television as the opiate of the masses, and that is certainly true. In fact, I found this article which indicates that the metaphor is perhaps even more appropriate than the dynamic duo thought:

“People over-50 who watch more than three-and-a-half hours of television a day are more at risk of memory loss, research suggests. A study of more than 3,600 older adults revealed watching too many soaps, documentaries or reality shows reduces their ability to recall words by up to ten per cent. Overindulging in your favourite shows could trigger a 'cognitive stress' that leads to memory loss, the researchers claim. It may also take away from activities that keep older people sharp, such as reading or playing educational games online. The research was carried by University College London and led by Dr Daisy Fancourt, senior research associate in the department of behavioural science and health. 'There has been interest for over a decade in the effect of television viewing behaviours on cognition, but much of this literature has concentrated on children,' Dr Fancourt said. 'Much less attention has been paid to the effects of television viewing at the other end of the lifespan, despite it being hypothesised for over 25 years that watching excessive television could contribute to the development of dementia.'

Why the Globalists Love AI By Brian Simpson

     The answer, short and sweet is centralised power and control. Sure, many of us get off playing with computers, but I suppose plenty of people get off playing with chemistry sets too, but do not go to the genetic engineering level of playing Dr Frankenstein:

“The globalists have long held AI as a kind of holy grail in centralization technology. The United Nations has adopted numerous positions and even summits on the issue, including the “AI For Good” summit in Geneva. The UN insinuates that it's primary interest in AI is in regulation or observation of how it is exploited, but the UN also has clear goals to use AI to its advantage. The use of AI as a means to monitor mass data to better institute “sustainable development” is written clearly in the UN's agenda. The IMF is also in on the AI trend, holding global discussions on the uses of AI in economics as well as the effects of algorithms on economic analysis. The main source for the development of AI has long been DARPA. The military and globalist think tank dumps billions of dollars into the technology, making AI the underlying focus of most of DARPA's work. AI is not only on the globalist's radar; they are essentially spearheading the creation and promotion of it.

Welcome to Clown World By Charles Taylor

     If one needs more proof of the insanity and viciousness of the system that they have set up, consider this: that the Democrats are getting a Congressional hearing (these creatures love talkfests) going because President Trump’s claims that the mainstream media delivers “false news”:

“Congressional Democrats are planning to hold hearings about President Trump’s criticisms of establishment news outlets, according to a new report. Bloomberg News reports that the House Judiciary Committee, which is currently led by Jerrold Nadler (D-NY), will seek to investigate Trump calling the media “fake news” and “enemies of the people.” “The committee will study whether such actions either reflect or blur the Constitution’s separation of powers,” the report states.”

Political Correctness Gets Madder and More Vicious Every Day (If That is Possible) By Richard Miller

     There is something of a competition going on with the “journalists” at this site, if we can be called that, to find the most absurd politically correct story of the week. The winner gets a cold beer. So, here we go:

“Prosecutors have called for French far-right leader Marine Le Pen to be tried for tweeting pictures of atrocities committed by the Islamic State group, judicial sources said Friday. This could hike further pressure on Le Pen, 50, who already faces legal problems over alleged misuse of EU parliamentary funds. Le Pen shared the gruesome images in December 2015, a few weeks after ISIS jihadists killed 130 people in attacks in Paris. Her move sparking widespread condemnation in France. Prosecutors demanded that another member of her National Rally party, Gilbert Collard, also be tried on similar charges. It will be up to an investigative magistrate to decide whether a trial takes place, with a conviction for 'circulating violent pictures liable to be seen by children' carrying a maximum sentence of three years in prison and a fine of £65,000. Le Pen, who lost to Emmanuel Macron in the 2017 presidential elections, was stripped of her parliamentary immunity over the pictures and charged with circulating violent messages. Last year, she expressed outrage after the investigative magistrate called for her to undergo psychiatric tests in connection with her tweeting.”

Look, if Dr Phil Says it is So, It is So! By Paul Walker

     Like, wow, Dr Phil, a man with a real PhD, capable of analysing all sorts of things. Deep insights into human nature, like that Peterson chap, who also has a PhD. And if Dr Phil is critical of Social Justice Warriorhood, well so much the worst for SJW:

“Phil McGraw, best known as Dr. Phil, rejected the “social justice” ethos of state-mandated egalitarianism in an interview with Joe Rogan on Tuesday. Dr. Phil characterized inequalities between persons as a feature of the human condition (comments begin at 1:26:32): JOE ROGAN: There’s a movement going on in this country, right now, the social justice movement, and it leans in that direction [of preventing kids from facing and overcoming adversity], that people don’t want to look at things for how they are. They want to look at things for how they want them to be. DR. PHIL: I just don’t understand. You cannot legislate that everything is going to be equal for everybody, because everybody’s not equal. I’m sorry, they’re not equal. They may be equal in terms of their value as a human being, but they’re not equal in math skills, they’re not equal in how fast they run, they’re not equal in creativity. Everybody has their own value, but that doesn’t mean their marketable skills in an open society — in an open market — are going to be the same. JOE ROGAN: No, it’s ridiculous.’

Whitewashing Black-on-Black Crime By Richard Miller

     Can it be? The BBC whitewashing black knife crime? The image is of puny journalists with a cans of white paint, going to a knife crime scene, and painting everybody, and everything, white, struggling with each brushstroke, with their fragile muscles burning. But, that is just a metaphor, of course.

“Trevor Phillips has accused the BBC of “whitewashing” crime stories by not addressing the high number of black-on-black stabbings, and warned politicians and police to stop ignoring the links between race and gang violence. Mr Phillips, the former head of the United Kingdom’s Equality and Human Rights Commission (ECHR), made the comments in an opinion piece in The Telegraph on Friday, following a string of stabbings in London and Birmingham. Referencing a report released on Thursday which revealed that some 27,000 under-19s in England identify themselves as being part of a gang, Mr Phillips noted that in terms of youth gang violence, “black boys are more than 20 times as likely to be involved in serious attacks compared with their white peers.”

Doing Mathematics in South Africa By Brian Simpson

     Doing mathematics here in Australia is tough, and I dropped out in second year, with algebra (groups, rings, fields and other bs), partial differential equations and something else, I forget what, killing me.  Wait, I remember, it was statistics, which we had to do in biology, but without the proofs and stuff. Anyway, I went back to biology and stayed there, achieving an average grade of 50.1 percent, truly stunning, but good enough for an Australian teacher. But if I was in South Africa, maybe things would have been different:

“The “pass mark” for Grades 7 to 9 taking mathematics has been lowered to 20%, according to a report by CapeTalk. The head of the Western Cape Education Department, Brian Schreuder, confirmed the new requirement in an interview with the radio station. Schreuder said there were concerns learners were passing other subjects but failing mathematics. “When a learner, specifically those in Grades 7 to 9, has failed mathematics it means they can’t be promoted to another level because mathematics is a compulsory pass subject,” stated the report. “Mathematics is a huge problem in our society. The quality and the number of passes in mathematics is a challenge,” said Schreuder. A directive has been issued for those learners who pass “everything but fail mathematics” to be considered for the new pass requirement so they can continue to FETs or Grade 10. “A decision was taken that the group of learners who fail mathematics must not have less than 20% minimum pass mark to be given an opportunity to do mathematics literacy,” said Schreuder. The current pass mark for maths is 40%.”

Priorities for Australia By Viv Forbes

10 March 2019, Poor policies are taking Australia into tough times. There are four priorities for the coming election.

Firstly: Decimate the Feral Green Snakes in the Grass.
The climate/emissions obsession started with unelected foreigners in the UN and the IPCC who drafted deep green agendas to be imposed via elected Federal, State and Local governments. Australia must immediately withdraw from the Lima/Paris/Kyoto agreements, reject the 2030 Agenda, and repeal all the green tape they spawned. This costly mess creates no measurable climate or environmental benefits.

Secondly: Build more Reliable Base-Load Power Stations.
Green extremists want to destroy the carbon energy that powers our industries, supports our life style, funds our welfare and provides our jobs. They want to take us back to primitive green energy that can never support modern civilised life. We have played with weather-dependent wind-solar toys for too long. They will never power an advanced economy, nor will they lift poor nations from poverty. And they provide no demonstrated benefits for the climate, the landscape or consumers. All taxes, subsidies and energy targets that prop up unreliable intermittent energy must be abolished.

Thirdly: Build More Dams and Weirs.
Much of our continent cycles between droughts and floods. Both problems have the same solution – catch and store flood waters. The oceans are never short of water, but our land often is.

Finally: Fight Fire with Fire.
Every dry season we lose homes, properties, livestock, parks and wildlife to massive bushfires. There is only one solution – copy yesterday’s aboriginals and graziers and use small, managed, early-season fires to remove flammable ground litter. This will require landowners and local fire-fighters (not urban greenies) to manage these fuel-reduction burns.

Big Business Pollutes By John C. Massam

     I support the Environmental Protection Authority for trying to make huge polluters, such as mining and oil-extracting companies, take steps to partly neutralise their greenhouse gas emissions into the world's atmosphere. The Chamber of Minerals and Energy and Woodside, a huge mining company, were quoted on Friday as saying that making these big polluters plant trees and take other steps, would risk tens of billions of dollars and many jobs. Ameliorating their own pollution seems fair to me.  But while Australia exports millions of tonnes of coal and huge amounts of gas, will anyone ask someone, somewhere, to neutralise the greenhouse gas pollution as these burn? Political leaders ought to take the complaints of the extractive industries with a grain of salt.  The Big End of Town does not care a bit about atmospheric pollution, or jobs either.  Would they be automating if they cared about Australians' jobs? It was sad to see a publication criticising the EPA, and saying that the Authority was a group of pen-pushers.

Letter to The Editor - It might be electorally wiser for the Coalition to defend free speech

To The Australian         Milo Yiannopoulos is not under threat of being banned from entry here "because he just happens to champion the right side of politics" as Ian Kent claims (8/3). His trolling activities "to make as much noise as possible" are repugnant and his presence in our land would probably be a cause of irritating public disturbances. Yet do these factors really amount to justification for the entry ban? The suspicion arises, as with the recent entry ban on David Icke, that the Government is taking the easy way out to avoid negative publicity before the elections and that at the same time it is pandering to powerful sectional interests which continually seek to unfairly minimize adverse comment on their activities. It might be electorally wiser for the Coalition to defend free speech more robustly in future.

Letter to The Editor - The trading of insults and pejorative labelling is found right across the whole political spectrum

To The Age        The proposed entry ban on Milo Yiannopoulos ("No go, Milo: Right-winger banned", 7/3), like the ban on David Icke, raises concerns about the possible erosion of free speech that may be involved. The reported trolling activities of Yiannopoulos are repellent, but do they really suggest that he might, when here, "incite discord in the Australian community or in a segment of that community" to any significant extent? Moreover, the trading of insults and pejorative labelling is found right across the whole political spectrum; and most Australians are sensible enough to tolerate it as part of human nature. A common element in both these cases is the accusation that there has been anti-Semitism involved. This propaganda term is regularly used by some Jewish interests and their supporters to deflect adverse criticism of Jewish influence in politics, some of which may be justified and in the general interest.

Immigration: “A Threat to Existence” By Chris Knight

     Immigration is a threat to existence; that is something that needs to be written in the sky:

“On this weekend’s broadcast of “Fox News Sunday,” nationally syndicated conservative radio host Rush Limbaugh said President Donald Trump was right to declare a national emergency on the U.S.-Mexico border to build a wall. Limbaugh, “We have an emergency. This is an invasion. The very existence and definition of American culture, American society, the rule of law. Why does nobody talk about the fact that millions and millions and millions of people are breaking the law coming here illegally and that the Democrat Party wants that to happen?” He added, “It is undeniable that we have a major immigration problem and a political party that needs a permanent underclass of voters that wants that parade of illegal people who are uneducated, don’t even speak the language, they want them here. It is a crisis.”
