Very good developments in Syria prove that there is nothing like a good slap to bring an arrogant bitch to her senses. The slap was delivered by the Turks; the Kurd militias came to their senses in no time at all. They understood that Bashar al Assad is no butcher, but their legitimate ruler and protector, and ran to Damascus for protection. They were offered it time and again, but they arrogantly and stubbornly refused. Until now, when the US troops departed, and the Turkish troops rolled in. Still, they are (wayward) children of Mother Syria, and Assad promptly accepted their plea. He is not a malicious guy, and ready to forgive and forget. The banner of Syrian Arab Republic came up to fly over northern towns of East Syria; Syrian army began its deployment taking over the American bases. President Trump was as good as his word: he continued withdrawal of his troops from the area, giving a chance for the Syrians to regain peace on their land. Things still can go wrong; it is not clear how the Turks will react to this development. Their first wish – elimination of semi-independent Kurdish terrorist entity – had been already achieved. Assad would never allow Kurds to mount cross-border raids into Turkey. But Erdogan allies, the Syrian anti-Assad militants, could become difficult. Russian Air Force provides some possible answers. Russian diplomacy has a difficult but not impossible task. Even more reason for cautious optimism!
To The Northern Daily Leader
My memory is still long enough to remember that we (Australia) applied sanctions against Rhodesia for the "terrible" Smith regimes alleged repression of the people of that nation. Also against South Africa for same reasons. Sanctions have been applied to other nations as well and it strikes me as odd that we have not applied sanctions on China and demanded “regime change” because of China's repression of her people’s. Have I missed something somewhere, is there a good reason for this or are we already a colony of China? So went a letter I sent and was published at least locally in Inverell 2 weeks ago. Today I read that there is a Communist China flag flying over a Police Station in Victoria. This as reported in On Target by James Reed and I commend watching the Andrew Bolte video clip. Note what he says that this flag does NOT necessarily represent those Chinese who came to Australia years ago. Also the fact that whilst that flag flies over our police station down there we see Chinese in Hong Kong standing their ground against a power they know to be completely undesirable, untenable for them for them to even contemplate, ie to be swallowed up by the totalitarian control of a state where the State is god. They have had a taste of freedom and know what is happening inside China, whilst here in OZ we have no idea what it is to live in a police state. Read Solzenitzen, it is happening here, ALL our political parties have sold us out, Why do we vote for them, to do so is to be complicit in the betrayal of our nation and our Christian heritage. We can only pray that our own people, especially those we call leaders and pastors in our churches will come to realize what we have BEFORE it is gone. This is what my words about the lies that blind in DYNOEMS is all about.
We don’t need rowdy Extinction Reb-hellions on our streets – we need Education on Extinctions in our science academies, classrooms and media. Extinctions are natural events that close every chapter of Earth’s history - they remove species that can’t cope with competition or change. The rocks are Earth’s archives, recording past climates, extinctions, ice ages, droughts, planetary impacts and volcanic activities. There is NOTHING unusual about current conditions or trends except for today’s huge human population. (Dinosaurs also were very numerous and successful, but only remnants of their line remain today.) There are at least 17 major extinctions recorded in Earth’s archives. They are revealed by discontinuities in surface outcrops, and in drill logs and core samples taken from deep drilling, sea sediment sampling, lake strata, tree rings, stalactite rings and ice cores. There is zero evidence in Earth’s archives of an extinction event caused by high levels of carbon dioxide or by gradual global warming. In fact we see the reverse – warm eras like the modern warming are followed closely by higher levels of carbon dioxide, which encourages plants and supports abundant life on Earth. Past extinctions were caused by meteor impacts, earth movements, geomagnetic reversals, volcanism, tidal waves and changing sea levels. Most eras are closed by life-extinguishing ice ages. Increasing ice is the big thing we have to fear. This is always followed by declining levels of the gases of life (carbon dioxide and water vapour) in the atmosphere. This twin disaster will herald widespread starvation of all plants and animals on Earth. The planet’s archives will then record one more Extinction Event.
What was once a mere conspiracy theory now has the delightful tendency to become mainstream, due once again to the internet. Is it any wonder that the elites now see that the electronic creature they created may have turned against them, and must be destroyed? Take the role of Saudi Arabia in 9/11:
“During an episode this past week, Tucker Carlson of Fox News laid out the growing evidence of Saudi state sponsorship of 9/11, based on additional details coming out of the 9/11 victims’ families' lawsuit against the kingdom. Noting that the US increasingly appears "on the brink of bombing Iran" he questioned, "why are we doing that?" Carlson answered, "well we're primarily doing that to protect Saudi Arabia." "Iran had nothing to do with 9/11," he noted in his opening comments. "Saudi Arabia, meanwhile, was so connected to 9/11 that the families of many 9/11 victims are seeking justice — payment as recompense for the Saudis' role. So How exactly does the country and its government get to ignore this?" Saudi Arabia knowingly provided al Qaeda with support, financing and resources that were material, substantial and critical to the success of the September 11th Attacks — 9/11 victims families' lawsuit. "A heavily redacted 2012 [government] report describes the support Saudi government officials gave to two hijackers after they arrived in Los Angeles. The officials gave the two al Qaeda members 'assistance in daily activities'..." Carlson explained. The Fox host also referenced a sworn testimony by a high ranking FBI agent privy to the investigation who admitted the hijackers "would have had zero chance for success without a support structure waiting for them." "The families still want more information declassified about Saudi involvement and feel as if their own government has betraed them," Carlson continued in his report. Relative of one 9/11 victim, Brett Eagleson, said during the segment, "One would like to think that the FBI works for the American people and not the interests of Saudi Arabia."
Richard Wolstencroft is my very favourite Australian public intellectual, brave and no bs, always going to the heart of the matter, and I want to be just like him when I grow up, if I grow up.
He has a theory, he dubs “elite replacement theory,” a thing of considerable intellectual beauty:
Actionists have been concerned about court decisions relating to the abrogation of the Queen’s power and role, but the rot in the UK is much deeper, for this is a country that has allowed its children to be raped, and worse. A typical story of a country in a one-sided war, that is spiralling down to social collapse:
“A TELFORD child abuse victim has revealed she was raped by more than 500 men from the age of 11. Jennifer - not her real name - recalled being gang raped, often in her school uniform, trafficked, and held at gunpoint.
Her horrific past left her completely lost and broken, prompting her to attempt suicide, reported The Mirror. At age 16, Jennifer feared for her life as one rapist battered her and shoved gravel in her mouth to silence her desperate cries.
The Joker movie is out, and it tells the story of Batman’s greatest foe. But the real story is about the disintegration and decadence of the West. Michael Moore, the super-Leftoid, despite our differences understands what is behind the movie. Ignore the anti-Trump rhetoric, he is right about the corporate elites riding the West to the ground. It is a pity that the Left could not get itself under control and return to the Old Left mode, work with all those who see the present system as corrupt. Maybe then we could get somewhere.
“On Wednesday night I attended the New York Film Festival and witnessed a cinematic masterpiece, the film that last month won the top prize as the Best Film of the Venice International Film Festival. It’s called “Joker” — and all we Americans have heard about this movie is that we should fear it and stay away from it. We’ve been told it’s violent and sick and morally corrupt — an incitement and celebration of murder. We’ve been told that police will be at every screening this weekend in case of “trouble.” Our country is in deep despair, our constitution is in shreds, a rogue maniac from Queens has access to the nuclear codes — but for some reason, it’s a movie we should be afraid of. I would suggest the opposite: The greater danger to society may be if you DON’T go see this movie. Because the story it tells and the issues it raises are so profound, so necessary, that if you look away from the genius of this work of art, you will miss the gift of the mirror it is offering us. Yes, there’s a disturbed clown in that mirror, but he’s not alone — we’re standing right there beside him. “Joker” is no superhero or supervillain or comic book movie. The film is set somewhere in the ‘70s or ‘80s in Gotham City - and the filmmakers make no attempt to disguise it for anything other than what it is: New York City, the headquarters of all evil: the rich who rule us, the banks and corporations for whom we serve, the media which feeds us a daily diet “news” they think we should absorb. This past week, a week when a sitting President indicted himself because, in true Joker style, he was laughing himself silly at Mueller’s and the Dems’ inability to stop him, so he just quadrupled down and handed them everything they needed. But even then, after ten days of his flaunting his guilt, he was still sitting with his KFC grease-stained nuclear codes in the Oval Office, so he told Captain Sketchy to fire up the helicopter, the sound of its blades revving up, meant only to alert the reporters to scurry outside for the daily “press conference” — Trump walks outside into the deafening cacophony of the whirlybird and publicly and feloniously asks the Peoples Republic of China to interfere in our 2020 election by sending him dirt on the Bidens. He and his magic carpet of hair then walked away and, other than the citizen howls of “CAN YOU BELIEVE THIS?!”, nothing happened. As “Joker” opens this weekend, Joker, Jr. Is still still sitting at John F. Kennedy’s desk in the Oval Office on the days he shows up to work, dreaming of his next conquest and debauchery.
I see it now; our friendly neighbourhood terrorists and paedophiles go into their work providers with their job list. What, no jobs for terrorists this week? No children to molest? Look, can you maybe try some other line of work? How about rubbish collection? Working at university, say, in the Arts? Could you even become climate change activists given your background in terrorism, you know in changing peoples’ minds, but trying not to use violence this time?
“Some of Australia's most notorious criminals are set to be given the dole because they're too dangerous to be let free even after their jail terms are up. Under a new scheme, Victoria's most dangerous offenders - including terrorists and paedophiles - will be sent to a detention centre when have served their sentences. Because they are no longer prisoners but cannot be freed into the wider community, they are likely to be eligible for dole payments while staying at the new 10-bed Piper Detention Unit at the Barwon Prison. The $21 million unit will house serious sex and violent offenders who have finished their prison terms but are deemed to pose an unacceptable risk of reoffending if released.”
What exciting times it is on the road to climate change apocalypse, much more interesting than the Vietnam War protests of 1968. Just today we have people dangling from bridges, disruption to traffic, you name it. You can expect more fun times ahead.
Just to be devil’s advocate, as the legal saying goes, can you imagine how crazy people will get if a real apocalypse came and hit them, like an EMP event that took down the internet, and the bloody phones? It would make the doomsday cults we have seen in the past look pretty conservative by comparison. Overall, I am having a great time, and since the climate apocalypse has been declared have been on an emotional high. It was almost as much fun as when the anti-farts were on a rampage. What happened to those guys, did China stop making masks?
To The Australian Australia's cultural future will be severely damaged if the corrupt UK establishment succeeds in frustrating Brexit, for our political order depends fundamentally on British ideals, and on those ideals being realised in practice there as well as here. At the same time our strategic future looks increasingly dangerous as China grows in might, the US tends to withdraw from the Pacific (willingly or unwillingly) and more and more people seek to emigrate here illegally. Why on earth then are we allowing whatever unity and national strength we have to be corroded by a movement for Aboriginal separatism that is based on misrepresentation of the facts? Alleged "Arrernte girl" Bri Apma-Hayes, shown voting in an election for a "First Peoples Assembly" ("Young voices being heard on the path to treaty", 11/10), looks 100% European, is obviously only a part-Aboriginal and, probably, that is a very small part. At age sixteen she cannot know very much about Australian and international politics. The whole process set up by the left-wing Victorian Government, without any adequate mandate from Victorians as a whole, and involving a usurpation of federal government authority, amounts to betrayal. Where is the civic courage to oppose it?

Planned Parenthood has hit 7.6 million abortions since 1973 and looks like upping production, with an exciting new factory:
“Planned Parenthood has killed over 7.6 million babies since it legally began performing abortions in 1973 following the Roe v. Wade decision. That’s a catastrophic number. It’s easy to read 7.6 million and shrug it off. That’s more than two times the population of Los Angeles. That’s 7,600,000 humans that were never given a chance at life because of Planned Parenthood. 7,600,000 babies that never had the opportunity to celebrate a birthday. And that’s not even taking into account the number of babies aborted by Planned Parenthood illegally, before the Roe v. Wade decision was handed was decided by the United States Supreme Court. Planned Parenthood is by far the nation’s largest abortion provider. Over the holidays, they conveniently and quietly published their annual report for 2016-2017. Last year, Planned Parenthood published their annual report months late – in May! An analysis of the 2016-2017 report along with Planned Parenthood’s previous reports shows that Planned Parenthood is responsible for the deaths of over 7.6 million human babies. We know the Planned Parenthood number is likely low, in fact, pro life journalists with the Media Research Center estimated in 2016 that Planned Parenthood had killed upwards of 7.5 million babies. In the 2016-2017 fiscal year detailed in the report, Planned Parenthood performed 321,384 abortions. Last annual report (2015-2016), Planned Parenthood performed 328,348 abortions. The year before that (2014-2015) Planned performed 323,999 abortions.
The title is from a book which I have never read, but was popular with structuralists and other trendies in the 1960s, The Raw and the Cooked (1964), by French anthropologist Claude Levi Strauss. The idea was that social understanding could proceed in terms of binary opposites. Yes, I an asleep already. However, there is a more important sense of the raw and the cooked which relates to gut bacteria and gut health, which is far more important that intellectual nonsense:
“Because cooking involves exposing food to heat, it tends to change the various foods' physical and chemical properties. But do these alterations change the delicate microbial environment of the gut? That is the question that researchers from the University of California, San Francisco, Harvard University, in Cambridge, MA, and other institutions recently set out to answer. "Our lab and others have studied how different kinds of diet, such as vegetarian versus meat-based diets, impact the microbiome," says the senior author of the new study, Peter Turnbaugh, Ph.D., an associate professor at the University of California, San Francisco. In the new study — the findings of which appear in Nature Microbiology — the researchers started by looking at how different types of cooked and raw food might affect the gut microbiota of mice. To do so, they fed mice a diet of either raw or cooked beef or raw or cooked sweet potato. The team used these foods, in particular, because previous studies had shown that cooking alters their nutritional components and because both commonly feature in human diets. First, the researchers found, surprisingly, that raw meat and cooked meat did not affect the mice's gut microbiota in obviously different ways. However, there were clear differences between how raw and cooked sweet potatoes affected the gut environment in rodents. Mice on a raw potato diet had poorer bacterial diversity in the gut, as well as slightly fewer bacteria, compared with baseline measurements. They also had a higher proportion of Bacteroidetes bacteria, which play a key role in the degradation of glycans, a form of sugar. To confirm these findings, the researchers performed another series of experiments, in which they fed mice not just raw and cooked sweet potatoes, but also white potatoes, beets, carrots, corn, and peas — foods with various degrees of starchiness and digestibility. As before, the researchers found that cooked versus raw potatoes — of both varieties — affected microbial diversity in the gut differently. The same was not true of the other foods.
I was pleasantly, if not peasanty, surprised to read this glimmer of opposition to the New World Odour, sorry, Order, by our pm. Yes, the NWO even mentioned by name in the article, not an invention of my fervoured imagination. But it seems like only yesterday that when Eric Butler and Jeremy Lee spoke about the New World Order, the mainstreamers poo-pooed it, but now, well here you go:
“Scott Morrison has declared his government will lead the charge in asserting the authority of nation states over unelected international -institutions, such as the UN. The Prime Minister, in a major foreign policy address to the Lowy Institute on Thursday evening, signalled Australia would seek to play a greater role in shaping a new economic and strategic world order. Mr Morrison’s speech was aimed squarely at the push by the UN to set the global agenda on issues such as climate change and refugee policies. As democratic nations increasingly band together to counter a rising China, Mr Morrison announced he would visit India and Japan early next year and Indonesia next month. Mr Morrison’s visit to Washington DC late last month sparked debate about how the nation should balance its relationship with the US and China, but he told the Lowy Institute it was not a “binary” equation. While Mr Morrison recognised the benefits the global economy had brought Australia, he declared that the ballot box should always be more powerful than international institutions. He warned that where elite opinion became disconnected from the mainstream of societies, it could foster a sense of resentment and disappointment. “(It is) an era of insiders and outsiders, threatening social cohesion, provoking discontent and distrust,” Mr Morrison said. He said Australia would partner with the international community through “practical globalism” and vowed to make fresh efforts to reshape inter-national rules, starting with a new audit of global institutions and rule-making processes. “We should avoid any reflex towards a negative globalism that coercively seeks to impose a mandate from an often ill-defined borderless global community. And worse still, an unaccountable internationalist bureaucracy,” Mr Morrison said. “Only a national government, especially one accountable through the ballot box and the rule of law, can define its national interests. We can never answer to a higher authority than the people of Australia.” He said Australia had played its part over the generations to build a better world through “co-operative and respectful internationalism”. But he warned that pragmatic international engagement was giving way to a new order that sought to “elevate global institutions above the authority of nation states to direct national policies”.
Covering transgender news for this week, something which I am overwhelmingly excited to do, and which I am sure readers will be equally as excited to read. The courts are a gift to political correctness that keep on giving. Now we know that the Biblical belief in the existence of two sexes is inconsistent with the sacred morality of the new regime:
“A British employment tribunal has ruled that a Christian doctor’s biblical understanding of sexuality and lack of belief in transgenderism is “incompatible with human dignity.” After being fired from his job in 2018 for refusing to use pronouns that do not correspond to a person’s biological sex, disability assessor Dr David Mackereth filed a complaint against the Department of Work and Pensions (DWP) for harassment and discrimination under the Equality Act. In its decision this week, the panel declared that Dr Mackereth’s biblical belief that “God made humans male or female” was “incompatible with human dignity”. The tribunal ruled explicitly on three positions taken by Dr Mackereth that made him unable in good conscience to address a person as if they were a member of the opposite sex. The court referred to Mackereth’s “belief in Genesis 1:27,” a passage from the Bible that states: “So God created man in His own image; in the image of God He created him; male and female He created them.”
Here in the US police officers are losing their jobs for enforcing immigration law, which goes to show that the cosmopolitan religion of open borders immigration transcends even the rule of law now; it is a fanatical cargo cult, a mass insanity march of Western civilisation to its socio-ecological doom:
“Left-wing socialist Democrats have moved portions of our country – the portions they control – to near-anarchy with destructive policies that include non-enforcement of duly passed laws. The most obvious of these have to do with immigration, or, rather, illegal immigration. Democrats are the authors and backers of so-called “sanctuary city” policies, which forbid local police officers from identifying and helping federal officials remove people who are not in our country legally. So enamored with open borders are today’s Leftist Democrats that they are beginning to punish officers who dare to cooperate with federal immigration agents in removing illegal aliens. As reported by Big League Politics, the police chief of Fairfax County, Va., suspended one of his officers this week for assisting Immigration and Customs Enforcement agents:
In my articles, limited as they are at this site, I have pursued the theme of the dangers of the lawyers, and how the system has been corrupted so much that we live in part in a world run by the lawyers, namely the judiciary, a kritarchy. Of course, there are competing bands of elites working to control us, including the technocrats, so the story is more complex than a simple mono-causal view. Yet, the law new class are powerful and shaping the world in totally undesirable globalist ways. James Kirkpatrick has some inflammatory words on this:
“Liberal democracy isn’t “in crisis,” as journalists and academics keep saying, it’s already over. In the U.S., the critical decisions on immigration, Affirmative Action, and other issues are now made by judges, a system known as “kritarchy.” In the U.K., the British Supreme Court has usurped the monarchy as the font of law in a decision blatantly intended to prevent Brexit. Across Europe, judges simply overrule elected officials and formulate immigration policies. The illusions most Westerners have about their “free” political systems can no longer be maintained and we must purge ourselves of fantasies if we want real change. Many Americans thought they were getting real change when they elected Donald Trump president on a platform of immigration restriction. In the teeth of Ruling Class hysteria, it’s still hard to believe that he was actually elected. Yet it almost didn’t matter. Judges have continuously overruled his policy decisions, seemingly out of spite. One was U.S. District Judge Allison Burroughs, an Obama appointee, who in 2017 overruled President Trump’s executive order which mandated a travel ban for people from certain countries [Boston Federal Court Puts Hold On Trump’s Travel, Refugee Ban, by Shanoon Dooling, WBUR, January 29, 2017]. Allison Burroughs is also the judge who upheld Harvard’s affirmative action policy earlier this week. Her rambling, flowery judgment declares that “it is somewhat axiomatic at this point that diversity of all sorts, including racial diversity, is an important aspect of education.” Beginning from this questionable “axiom,” she justifies policies that harm Asian-Americans and whites because of the “compelling interest” of achieving “diversity.”
To The Age Unlike Victoria's Director of Public Prosecutions, I hope that the High Court consents to hear the appeal by Cardinal Pell against his conviction ("Court told to sound final bell on Pell", 9/10). The dissenting decision in the Court of Appeal by Justice Mark Weinberg is enough to show that there is some genuine doubt about the result of this case to date. The DPP does not seem to have found an error in his approach. Since it is such a high profile matter, with intense emotional investment by large numbers of the public both for and against Pell, a third examination of all the evidence to date by our highest court is warranted. There are high stakes here. The accused must be given every possible chance to answer the charges against him. Only then can the matter be laid to rest with propriety.

Here is an utterly crazy story about the US Democrat called lovingly AOC, to save breath and hence carbon emissions from over-talking, who thanked a possibly trolling audience question, based upon Jonathan Swiftian philosophy, about eating babies (A Modest Proposal (1729)):
“Prank or no, my take away from the eat-the-babies episode is Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-CA) repeatedly thanking the woman who said we need to eat babies to save the planet. Watch the video for yourself, but this time pay special attention to Ocasio-Crazy’s demonic and demented reaction to some crazy woman howling about how eating dead people is not enough. By the way, the idea of eating dead people to save the world from Climate Change is no joke. Just last month at something called the Gastro Summit, Swedish behavioral scientist Magnus Söderlund did a whole PowerPoint presentation arguing we must “overcome our taboo against cannibalism” and eat our own dead to reduce carbon emissions and promote sustainability. The woman at Ocasio-Crazy’s town hall was only taking this idea to the next logical step, a step that combines cannibalism with the Democrats’ utter disregard for newborn babies. The Democrat party is now openly pro-infanticide, openly okay with slaughtering a child post-birth, so why not go for the two-fer? Hey, eating the baby not only aborts it, it’s one less carbon-emitting feast for the whole family!”
Here is a tremendous media release by the Citizens Electoral Council of Australia, 3 October 2019, “Banks Push Deadly Climate Agenda,” which is well researched and informative about the forces behind the present climate hysteria:
“Banks push deadly climate agenda
The following article is from the Australian Alert Service of 2 October 2019. It was accompanied by “The real Al Gore”, a profile of Al Gore’s actions in his political career on issues other than climate change, which show his true colours as a ruthless enforcer for corporate-military interests—see link at the end of the article. Governor of the Bank of England Mark Carney, in a 23 September speech at the United Nations, revealed the City of London and Wall Street financial oligarchy’s agenda on climate change. It threatens a bleak future for the children of today—one of poverty, death, and environmental destruction. The banking elite brazenly ignore the scientific realities of climate change, and scientists who warn of the disastrous polices promoted by … Goldman Sachs et al. are routinely ignored or bullied into following the establishment line. Carney, formerly a Goldman Sachs executive and Chair of the G20-BIS Financial Stability Board in 2011-18, oversaw the drive to bully nations into a bail-in regime in preparation for the now looming “economic Armageddon”. Now he reveals a climate policy that defies science and lacks humanity for the poorest and most vulnerable in society, many of whom would die under the bankers’ “zero carbon” energy austerity program. In his 23 September speech to the UN Secretary General’s Climate Action Summit 2019, Carney boasted that current supporters of the G20’s Task Force on Climate-related Financial Disclosures (TCFD) “are responsible for assets totalling US$120 trillion and include the world’s globally systemic banks, top 10 global asset managers, leading pension funds and insurers”.
Another great story by the even greater Andrew Bolt, Australia’s best journalist.
“No need for communist China to invade. Victoria's police have already raised the dictatorship's flag over a police station in a heavily Chinese suburb. And guess who came to cut the cake to celebrate the dictatorship's birthday? Why, it's Gladys Liu, the Liberal MP tied to China's propaganda arm. My editorial from The Bolt Report.”
