The Treason of the Intellectuals by James Reed

Over the Christmas break period, I set about cleaning up my book shelf, getting ready for the grim reaper. Don’t leave it until it is too late I say. So I write this as I flip through some older books all on the theme of the intellectuals and the new class. The idea of the “treason of the intellectuals” is now pretty well out there so out go these books, committed to the flames to increase my carbon footprint and help prevent the next ice age, in a small way.

Paul Johnson, Intellectuals, (Weidenfeld and Nicolson, London, 1988); a big book with lots of dirt on so called great minds like Rousseau, Shelly, Marx, Ibsen, Hemingway, Bertrand Russell, Brecht, Sarte, Norman Mailer. There is something wrong with all of them personally, and they all hold to the idea that they are superior to us common folk and that society will be better if their ideas were adopted. In fact, as shown by Marx and others, their ideas are disasters, responsible for untold human misery.

More for Pauline: GENUINE DEMOCRACY IS DECENTRALISED CONTROL OF POLICY MAKING

We must always keep the fact firmly fixed in our minds, that genuine democracy is decentralised control of policy making. This is in harmony with the Christian philosophy that all power and authority should arise from within the Individual, who should have the greatest possible self-determination.

There are two basic philosophies in the world, each diametrically opposed to the other; obviously these two philosophies and the policies arising from them, result in two different types of organisation. All organisation has to do with the association of individuals.

What if the First Humans Came from Australia, Not Africa? The Myth of the Aborigines as a First People by Brian Simpson

I return to an issue that I briefly discussed last year: what if the first humans came from Australia, not Africa, contrary to the received “Out-Of-Africa” anthropological hypothesis? Here I will explore this interesting idea further, citing Internet sources.

One article “Out-of-Africa Yesterday, Australia Today and the Pleiades Tomorrow – Part 1,” at http://www.ancient-orgins.net/human-origins-science-opinion-guest-authors/out-africa-yesterday-australia-today-and-pleiades, says that the original molecular geneticists who first coined the “African Eve” name, had “conceded errors in their original research then dismissed Africa and repositioned Australia as the birthplace of Homo Sapiens sapiens.” The article quotes one as saying: “It seems too far out to admit, but while Homo erectus was muddling around the rest of the world, a few erectus had got to Australia and did something dramatically different – not even with stone tools – but it is here that Homo sapiens emerged and evolved.”

Who Would Have Thought That Terrorists Would Exploit Australia Visa System Flaws by James Reed

Australia since the end of the White Australia Policy has been moving pretty much to open borders immigration. This can’t be done overnight, just as the ethno-racial change of the Anglo-Saxon population – 97 percent at Federation – had to be done by the Fabian strategy of gradualism. Nevertheless, that is the direction.

At the turn of the new year, the Immigration Minister said that terrorists were exploiting flaws in the temporary visa system. (The Weekend Australian, December 31 2016-January 1, 2017, p. 1) Terrorists convicted and serving sentences in Australian gaols had used fake passports and spousal, tourist and humanitarian visas. To counter this, the government intends to improve visa risk assessments and strengthen the citizenship character test.All these measures are a joke which will do nothing. The problem is immigration itself and the profound ethno-cultural changes which it produces. With free immigration, terrorists and extremists will always enter the country.

The Costs of Foreign Domination of Australian Agriculture by James Reed

The  ATOs Corporate Tax Transparency List for 2014-2015, has revealed the ugly truth that dozens of foreign multinational companies that have made billions buying and selling Australian agricultural commodities have paid no tax: http://www.weeklytimesnow.com.au/news/national/foreign-agriculture-giants-avoid-australian-tax-bill/news-story/6f30e64fa8b270a13c6c3e2bd27c57b0. Apparently these multinationals all made losses, some for the second year in a row. The companies span the entire Australian agricultural sector of grain, wool, dairy, wine, pork and other commodities. If such companies make losses then why are they still operating here? Clearly we Australians, due to our absurdly biased tax laws, written to benefit the multinationals over locals, are being taken once again down the river. Wake up Australia!

Post-Truth? by James Reed

The Oxford English Dictionary organisation claimed that the word of the year for 2016 was “post-truth.”  See: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Post-truth_politics.  “Post-truth,” the OED says, is used as an adjective “relating to or denoting circumstances in which objective facts are less influential in shaping public opinion than appeals to emotion and personal belief.”

The definition seems to imply that there can be “subjective facts,” which is more than a little odd, since “facts” have always been associated with objectivity. It also implies that there is such a thing as truth. That, of course, is not a problem for us, but for the postmodern Left it is, because, well, everything is a social construction, and that certainly includes truth. So the whole post-truth concept appears to be inconsistent with the rest of the absurd Leftoid ideology.Be that as it may, post-truth has been used by the chattering class of the Left to explain everything they don’t like, such as Brexit and the triumph of Donald Trump. (The Australian, December 10-11, 2016, p. 20) The “deluded” masses, who haven’t yet fulfilled their revolutionary role, have been swayed by emotion and subjective factors.  This seems to be a return to classical Marxism, with its ideas of hegemony and false consciousness. It just goes to show that the Left have really no new ideas, but just turn over the compost in the garbage can of their decaying philosophies.

“Fake News”: From Russian Hacking to Pizzagate by Chris Knight

“Fake news” and the alleged hacking of the Democrats by the Russians during the US elections, were the buzz international stories over the Christmas break. “Fake news” arose as an establishment response to news it did not like, especially items critical of the elites and migrants. Thus, the German government wanted new laws to prosecute social media outlets such as Facebook for publishing so-called “fake news” and “hate messages’ – defined as criticism of the said groups: http://www.breitbart.com/news/german-legislators-want-to-fine-facebook-for-fake-news.

In responding to this, Facebook will now label “fake news,” using liberal “fact checkers” such as Snopes, Factcheck.org and PolitiFact. But these “fact checkers,” according to Breitbart.com, “have records of left-wing partisanship,” as revealed in the 2016 US presidential election. Thus, it was claimed by PolitiFact that it was “mostly false” (whatever that means), when Donald Trump claimed in a presidential debate that Hillary Clinton wanted “open borders.” This was said even though Hillary Clinton was on record as saying at a speech to bankers: “My dream is a hemispheric common market, with open trade and open borders.”

Slavery, the White Guilt Complex and Political Correctness by Charles Taylor

Recently there have been a number of US academics who have said that because whites have “benefited from slavery and are complicit in it,” they should all commit “mass suicide.” This genocide should be made whether or not one’s ancestors were involved in slavery, which is a new, wide concept of racial guilt. No matter that the number of deaths would vastly outnumber the number of slaves who ever existed anywhere; whitey must die, die, die!

This is a kind of collective racial guilt, now a growing part of Leftism, and a new level in insane political correctness: http://itself.wordpress.com/2015/06/30/should-white-america-commit-mass-suicide-if-not-why-not/; http://www.dailywire.com/news/4180/debater-harvard-says-white-people-should-kill-chase-stephens; http://www.truthandaction.org/mass-college-professor-white-males-are-a-cancer-and-must-die-urges-students-to-kill-themselves.

A Christmas Present to Pensioners, Turnbull Style by James Reed

Turnbull’s changes to the pension, which came in on January 1, 2017, will cut payments for 330,000 Australians, and those moved off the pension will also miss out on various discounts linked to the pensioner’s concession card. About 230,000 Australians will have their pension reduced and 91,000 people will lose their pension altogether. (The Australian, December 28, 2016, p. 1)All of this wickedness came from the 2015 budget, designed to save 2.4 billion over five years. This is a cruel budget that slapped older Australians in the face, but it was a budget that passed the Senate in June with support of the ever-politically correct Greens.

This penny pinching of older Australians goes on, while as Pauline Hanson publicised, Centrelink is paying spousal benefits to second and third wives of Muslim men: http://www.news.com.au/national/politics/pauline-hanson-on-centrelinks-polygamy-pay-weve-been-taken-for-fools/news-story/15ecdb893936c97ac885e42622470311

It Must be a Global Version Of Brazil That the Elites Want! by Brain Simpson

As a footnote to James Reed’s well researched paper, I suggest that the migration-mad elites must be wanting to create Brazil in every Western nation. The ethno-racial composition of Brazil is: white 47.7 %; mixed race 43.1 %; Black 7.6 %; Asian 1.1 % and Indigenous 0.4 %. A truly multicultural society where the indigenous people “disappear.”

And exciting too: a recent prison riot and prison break led to at least 56 dead, many beheaded, with 144 prisoners escaping. This occurred due to conflict between rival gangs in the Antonio Trindade Penal Institute, Manaus, between the Family of the North (FDN) gang and the rival First Capital Command (PCC) gang: http://www.nbcnews.com/news/world/least-60-killed-bloody-brazil-prison-riot-n702396Welcome to one possible future if good men (and women), as usual, do nothing.

The Great Racial Divide: Can the West Survive? by James Reed

Here is an important article which should not be allowed to disappear too quickly down the Orwellian memory hole: Rosemary Neill, “Nation Divided at School Gate as Progressives Lead White Flight,” The Weekend Australian, December 10-11, 2016, p. 1. And here is the opening paragraph: “Since 2002 the City of Yarra council has proclaimed Melbourne’s inner north “a Refugee Welcome Zone.” But in this ardently Greens-voting area – and in left-leaning suburbs in Sydney’s inner west – progressive, middle-class families have been accused of avoiding schools with high refugee, indigenous or non-English-speaking student populations.”

The white progressives are “fleeing” inner Melbourne schools that have large African-Australian populations. Indeed, one academic quoted observes that the white progressives’ acceptance of diversity does not apply to their own children. But it is not just whites that are engaging in ethnic segregation the article says, as “staggering” levels of separation are also found in “predominantly Asian selective government schools on Sydney’s north shore.”

Letter to The Editor

TO THE AGEJuliet Samuel in her thoughtful reflection on the right of today's Germans to reappraise the history of Nazism ('Germans must learn from Hitler to escape him', 7/1) correctly observes that 'to Angela Merkel and her peers, the greater the threat to liberalism, the more inflexibly and dogmatically it must be defended.' Alas, that German government stance is itself fundamentally illiberal.

Yes, Germans need to be able to review their history without being 'blinded' by excessive guilt and need to atone; but laughing at Hitler is hardly a better response. Whether or not the heavy annotation of the new edition of 'Mein Kampf' is helpful or too blemished by hostile prejudice remains to be seen; but public commentary on the Nazi period needs to be freed from the shackles of political censorship. Remembrance of (not 'reverence for') past horrors must be tempered by the freedom to review and revise historical accounts where necessary. Nazism occupies only thirteen years of German national history; and Germans are as entitled as any other people to celebrate their past glories.NJ, Belgrave, Vic

The Never Ending Expansion of the Definition of Homophobia by Mrs Vera West

Perhaps you think that you are “progressive” and “tolerant” and not suffering from the malady of “homophobia” – but you may be wrong. (The Australian, December 2, 2016, p. 1) At least according to the GALE Association, where “modern homophobia” is different from the open hostility of “traditional homophobia.”So what is “modern homophobia”? Well, “modern homophobics state that they are not homophobic but they prefer their child not to be LGBTI and they prefer not to associate with LGBTI, especially when they do not conform to heteronormative standards.”What follows from this is essentially a denial of the right to raise children to be heterosexual. This is just one tiny step from making the choice to raise children to be heterosexual a hate crime.

It is a fundamental quality of liberty that one should be able to freely associate with who one likes. If one prefers not to associate with LGBTI, then, so what! It seems that the new class are pushing a bit too hard on this one and there may well be a backlash. The edition in The Australian (December 2, 2016, p. 15) describes this as “attempted mind control – a product of fanatical, totalitarian thinking that should have no place in Australian education.”  Yet, while Australian students fall far behind their international peers in science and mathematics, there is no shortage of such “mind control” delivered by the “thought police on the march.” If they continue to win, this alone will crush Australia into Third World Status, or worse.

More Politically Correct Language by Mrs Vera West

Don’t dare speak about “husbands” and “wives”- if you are in Victoria. (The Australian, December 16, 2016, p.3) The Inclusive Language Guide, to be used in the public sector, bans using “heteronormative” terms such as “husband” and “wives” and requires the use of gender-neutral pronouns such as “zie” and “hir.” The guide, according to the Victorian Equality Minister, aims to keep the LGBTI community safe by “eradicating homophobia, biphobia and transphobia.”Now, I would not want anyone to be unsafe but to my old mind though this seems to be little more than a politically correct attack on heterosexuality. If one is heterosexual and has a husband or wife, why shouldn’t one be able to refer to that Fact? That’s discrimination!Then we will find out if it really is the case that gender is a social construct!

Immediately prior to the Christmas break, the SA parliament passed a heap of LGBTQI (have I missed any letters?) legislation. South Australia has now formally recognised same-sex marriage. The unpopular premier Jay Weatherill also issued a formal apology to the LGBTQIers. Not only is there state wide recognition of same sex marriages, as well as those outside of Australia, but next-of-kin adoption rights.  If the highly unlikely Federal referendum on the same sex marriage proposal delivers a “NO!” result, it may be possible to constitutionally challenge the state legislation as being inconsistent with the Commonwealth Marriage Act 1961. But, like anything taken to court today, I would not bet on it.The Gender Amendment Act makes it easy to change one’s gender on one’s birth certificate. I bet Uncle Len, over there in Adelaide, is wishing now that he did not work so hard to oppose the radioactive waste dump in SA! He may even change his gender, race and species!

It is Time for a Real Conservative Party by James Reed

I know that there are many among us who are concerned about the rise of One Nation and the possible fracturing of the Liberal/National Coalition with a new conservative party. They see such developments as merely leading to the Labor Party getting office. The Liberal/National Parties, however, differs little from Labor in basic ideology. Turnbull has once again breathed life into the Republic push, and he is firmly committed to Australia becoming a republic. He will not budge on section 18C of the “There is No Freedom of Speech Act” because, he believes in it.

The breakaway of Katter and Liberal Senator Cory Bernardi to form new conservative groups is thus only natural. The Liberal/National Coalition are both rotten to the core. Better to destroy them both, endure Labor as a minority government, and rebuild. A new conservative party and other independents, sympathetic to traditional Australia, is needed to drain the Canberra swamp.

Disarm and Defund the Green Globalists NOW

Napoleon’s Grand Army was defeated in the Battle of the Nations in 1813. The Emperor abdicated and was banished to Elba. But his army was not disarmed and destroyed by the victors. Just 2 years later, Napoleon escaped and quickly re-mobilised his army. Only Wellington blocked his path to Brussels, at Waterloo. After a fierce day of battle, a weary line of redcoats still held the ridge at Waterloo. But Napoleon’s Old Guard had been held in reserve for this decisive moment. Advancing like a spear, three columns wide, “The Invincibles” aimed to pierce the middle of the thin red line.   But a miracle occurred. Withering fire on both sides of the spear from the thin red line sapped their strength - Napoleon’s Old Guard broke and ran. This was the critical point of that battle (and for the Climate War now). It is at the moment of defeat, with the enemy disorganised and demoralised, that the greatest gains can be made. Too often, however, the weary victors waste this opportunity to pursue and destroy the enemy.

Wellington’s exhausted army was incapable of pursuit, but a miracle occurred – General Blucher arrived at sundown with fresh Prussian troops. The avenging German lancers pursued, captured, disarmed and slaughtered the fleeing French all the way back to Paris. Never again did the Grand Army threaten Europe. In the global Climate Wars, Trump and Brexit have given us a victory of Waterloo dimensions. But this will be only a temporary setback for the Green Globalists unless they are now ruthlessly disarmed and de-funded. If we rest and relax, we will soon be ground under their green sandals again.

Putin: The ‘New World Order’ Is Normalizing Pedophilia In The West

Posted on December 27, 2016 by Baxter Dmitry in News, World

Vladimir Putin has used his annual Christmas press conference to accuse Western liberal elites of abandoning the traditional values that made their countries great. Instead of building a future based on solid Christian values, Western elites have created a culture of “excessive, exaggerated political correctness” that is so destructive it will lead to the downfall of Western civilization if it is not arrested.

Beware of a 'Treaty' with Aboriginals!

from a NZ reader.The NZ experience of a Treaty, with respect to the “original” people, would hold up as a working wonder of what should be done everywhere . It is constantly presented as having been a huge success. But the reality is that billions of dollars have gone to “settlements” which are endless and the vast majority of maori never have and never will see a cent of any of it. Besides this, there are unelected maori advisers on the larger city councils and the costs of such are never revealed.

In several areas of Auckland (and perhaps elsewhere) property developers and home owners need a consent from the “local iwi” to make certain alterations to the property or dwelling. Usually this means a cash payment of several hundred dollars to the tribal “representative”. And who knows how much later on. Waterways and harbours are also in the pipe line for maori “representatives” to decide what does or doesn’t happen here.
