Letter to The Editor - The PM also needs to back the country away from unnecessary and potentially harmful referendums

To The Australian        Maurice Newman sagely notes that Scott Morrison must "pursue a course more consistent with traditional Liberal Party values" ("Political elites face the wrath", 10/6). He and his colleagues also need a carefully thought out strategy to gradually shift the cultural atmosphere of Australia more to the conservative and traditional side. That is no mean challenge. Newman touches on many of the policies needed: rejection of the "human-induced global warming" scam; protection of Australia's national sovereignty and political independence from the selfish ambitions of elites favouring global governance; and firm protection of our borders with a realistic immigration policy. The PM also needs to back the country away from unnecessary and potentially harmful referendums on a republic and constitutional indigenous recognition.  Most importantly of all, he needs to display humility and graciousness in admitting that he has been wrong to express support for the latter of these two anti-traditional campaigns.

Good News, Good News: The Triumph of Le Pen et al. By Richard Miller

     This news is getting a bit dated now, but it is still good enough for we nationalists to gloat over, that Le Pen has crushed globalist mass immigrationist Macron in the EU election exit poll:

“Populist leader Marine Le Pen and her Rassemblement National (National Rally, or RN) have triumphed over sitting French president Emmanuel Macron in the European Parliament elections, according to exit polls. Ms Le Pen declared victory following exit polls showing the RN winning around 24 per cent of the vote, compared to Macron’s La Republique En Marche! (LREM) who, according to projections, has come in second with 22.5 percent of the vote, French newspaper Le Figaro reports. Declaring victory, the RN leader said, “The trust we have been given by the French in designating us as the first party in France but especially as that of the future alternation is an immense honour.” She went on to call for Macron to dissolve the French parliament, saying “it is up to the President of the Republic to draw the consequences” and calling for fresh elections, stating that Macron put his own presidency on the line in the vote.”

Letter to the Editor - Perhaps we should regard ourselves as a "free country" in which mutual respect for "the other" is not eroded by fanaticism

To The Age        Chris Pearson asserts that Australia "is a secular country" (3/6). Well, yes and no. Our sovereign is a ruler whose authority is vested in the Christian sacred tradition. In certain respects, therefore, we are a Christian nation. Perhaps the main purpose of the republican movement is to bring that situation to an end. The suggestion that "the Coalition sees its victory as a mandate to allow hate speech" is extreme. More truly, the Coalition has promised protection for those Australians, individuals, groups and institutions, who are religious; and this was made necessary by the ferocious campaign against people of faith waged by a significant number of Australians and more or less supported by the ALP/Greens alliance. Perhaps we should regard ourselves as a "free country" in which mutual respect for "the other" is not eroded by fanaticism, whether religious or secular. At the moment that suggests that added protection is needed for the religious sector rather than the secular sector.

Exit the Traitors By Richard Miller

     Another one bites the dust, and it is about time, too, as British Prime Minister Theresa May resigns in girly tears, and exits stage door left, probably to get some well-paying EU job in the great hive. Yes, they didn’t call her “May” for nothing.

Letter to The Editor - The claim that polls show that "more than sixty per cent of Australians back the idea" is questionable

To The Australian        Australians should be wary of the way in which its new government is handling the question of "constitutional" recognition of our so-called "indigenous people" ("Time is right for indigenous voice to be heard in houses of parliament", 28/5). George Williams states that "the Uluru Statement has built considerable momentum". It also has the capacity to fatally divide the political order of this currently unified and united nation.     The claim that polls show that "more than sixty per cent of Australians back the idea" is questionable. Polls are on the nose at the moment. In moving towards a planned referendum on the "voice to Parliament", the PM must ensure that fair publicity and funding is provided for the "no" case.

Letter to The Editor - Anything smacking of racism is anathema

To The New York Times        My fellow countryman Waleed Aly has offered an insightful comment on the recent federal elections result, focusing on what he calls our tendency towards caution rather than any "right-wing" or "hard" conservatism in Australia's soul. What he omitted, however, was any reference to the enormous ideological struggle that has been going on here since the Whitlam (ALP) government took office at the end of 1972. There are those of us who are happy with our historical story of British colonisation, the transition to dominion status after federation and the continuation of our Christian sacred tradition and monarchical constitution. We are pleased to go on as part culturally of the Anglosphere. Many other Australians disagree. They do want big change. Away with the monarchy and the flag and any further hanging on to Britain's coat-tails, they cry! They have much more say in our national forums than do we conservatives. Equality rather than class stratification is their preference. Anything smacking of racism is anathema. The essential message of the very close result in these elections is that this intense struggle between the adherents of two different Australias will continue and that the end result is still in doubt.

Last Minute Interference by Al Gore and the ABC into the Australian Election By Viv Forbes

     The Saltbush Club today called for an enquiry into a last minute intervention by an American politician, Al Gore, into the Australian Election. The Executive Director of the Saltbush Club, Viv Forbes, said that in such a tight election race, the intervention of someone with the international stature of Al Gore, assisted by the climate activist Australian Broadcasting Commission, could easily change the result of the election.

“The Gore intervention was not subtle - he labelled the LNP government climate policy as ‘not credible’ and taking the country ‘in the wrong direction’.

“Becoming even more partisan, Gore praised the opposition Labor plan ‘as an extremely significant act of leadership on the part of Australia.’

“This carefully timed intervention in a closely fought Australian election by a prominent foreign politician is a blatant attempt to promote a damaging climate agenda already rejected in the USA.

“This surely justifies an enquiry into foreign electoral interference and ABC complicity.”

Letter to the Editor - The Election

     Make sure LNP controls the House of Representatives. Number all squares, put all Greens last and ALP second last. Beware of “Independents” – they may be turncoats like Windsor and Oakshott a while back. Make sure neither ALP/Greens nor LNP control the Senate. Pick sensible minor parties and give them your first vote. Keep numbering until you get to the LNP so your vote does not expire. Put Greens dead last on every ballot paper and ALP just above them. On the Senate keep numbering until you reach the LNP and give no votes to ALP/Greens. The main aim of Saltbush is to change the climate of public opinion. Politicians are driven by public opinion, which drives voting behaviour. So we need to change public opinion. It only needs a couple of percent of people to switch, and politicians will notice, and trim their sails to the new wind.

     We can only do that if we can communicate subversive ideas as widely as possible among opinion leaders, media and the public. In an attempt to change public opinions we have been releasing (every day) statements designed to dramatise and highlight the stupidity of the climate/energy policies or all major parties. Most of them are here:

Letter to The Editor - The British people would be fools to take this dishonourable behaviour lying down

To The Age        It is good news for the principle of genuine representative government that Nigel Farage's Brexit Party is doing so well in the UK ("Farage tops Tories in British poll", 13/5). First the Conservative Party and then a majority of MPs in the House of Commons have defied the popular wish for Britain to leave the dictatorial European Union, a wish shown clearly in the 2016 referendum verdict. The British people would be fools to take this dishonourable behaviour lying down. Let us hope that Farage is right that "millions of Britons will desert the two main parties" if PM Theresa May and Labor leader Jeremy Corbyn "reach a consensus", because any such agreement would be a betrayal of the majority will and an affront to democracy. It would be a Brexit in name only.

Letter to The Editor - The liberals, alas, in a crunch will side with the Left rather than the Right

To The Australian        The latest news from Britain ("Don't cave in to Labour on Brexit, Tories tell May", 7/5) suggests that the actual political struggle going on there now is between those who want a strong betrayal of Brexit and those who want a milder one. The tale has a message for Australia at election time. Just as in the UK, so here, the problem for conservatives is that the main centre-right party is actually fundamentally split between liberals and genuine traditionalists. The liberals, alas, in a crunch will side with the Left rather than the Right - as the Brexit tragedy shows. In both nations too few voters really care for traditional values and the attitudes of responsibility and self-restraint that underpin them. At election time here the best that conservatives can do is direct their primary votes to a right-wing minority party if the mainstream anti-Left candidate is in fact a liberal, not a conservative.

Letter to The Editor - Most Australians will not be fooled out of seeing the obvious

To The Australian        If the ALP does win the coming elections, it is to be hoped that common sense will trump fanaticism in the management of Aboriginal affairs ("Dodson under pressure to deliver", 20-21/4). Expectations that "Labor would deliver a first-term referendum on a 'voice to parliament'" will need to be disappointed. All models of "constitutional recognition" involve an innate inequity and capacity to divide, not unify, the nation. Most Australians will not be fooled out of seeing the obvious, so any referendum proposal looks doomed to failure and that is as it should be. Moreover, a failed referendum would see strengthened international pressure put on our government. That also is an ill that should be avoided by common sense and fair play.

Letter to The Editor - There is no likelihood that any "constitutional recognition" proposal will succeed in a referendum

To The Age        Denny Meadows says that the Uluru Statement from the Heart "was outrageously dismissed out of hand" (20/4) by the government, but the truth is that the rejection was wise, because the attached proposals are inequitable (contrary to the interests of most Australians) and separatist (leading towards a loss of our national unity and security). There is no likelihood that any "constitutional recognition" proposal will succeed in a referendum. Holding one would be a waste of public money.

Just Before Britain Dies By Richard Miller

     Even though it is far to late to save the Britain of modernity, perhaps this is good news for those who are working on a post-collapse society, which will be just, and not based upon the philosophies of illusion, such as the diversity cult, multiculturalism/multiracialism and the love of money:
  https://www.breitbart.com/europe/2019/04/09/study-britons-want-immigration-reduced/

“A majority of people in the UK from every age bracket and ethnic background want to see immigration reduced, a new survey has found. The study of 10,000 people carried out by the newly formed centre-right think-tank ‘Onward’ discovered that all groups, including minority ethnic groups, 18-24-year-olds and those who voted to remain in the EU, all back reducing the level of immigration into the UK. Broken down, the figures show that Remainers back reducing immigration by 40 to 34 per cent, the same proportion as British Asians interviewed. The results also showed that a plurality of 18-24-year-olds backed reducing immigration by 38 to 36 per cent, The Sun reports. The study also found that among the most popular of proposed policies focussed on immigration would be one requiring new migrants to learn the English language upon arrival. The findings come as Britain faced its highest rate of non-EU migration for 14 years. In 2018, net immigration from non-EU countries stood at over 248,000, equivalent to the population of Southampton arriving in just one year. The demographic shift helped push the non-UK born population of the country to 9.4 million, around one in seven people nationwide. The most recent figures from the Office for National Statistics (ONS) found that between July and September last year, there were 1.24 million non-EU nationals working in the UK as well as 2.25 million EU nationals, a total of nearly 3.5 million, larger than the population of Wales.”

Letter to The Editor - It is human folly rather than wickedness that breeds revolution

To The Age        It is odd that as our federal elections process begins you should editorially warn readers of the "real danger to our communities in saying anything that divides Australian from Australian" ("Get ready for a gruelling campaign", 11/4). Elections are all about division between Australian and Australian concerning a whole range of policies and philosophies. All that can reasonably be asked is for public discussions to be conducted with courtesy, sympathy for opponents and a good sense of humour. It is swinging voters in the centre who will determine the final result. My hope is that they will weigh carefully the values of traditional Australia before casting a vote against the Coalition. Giving the reins to idealistic but foolish left-wing zealots may in itself lead to unpleasant and severe hostility between Australian and Australian in the not too distant future. It is human folly rather than wickedness that breeds revolution.

Bre-Entrance:The Great Betrayal is No Myth By Richard Miller

     It seems that the Brexit issue is driving British politicians into the mad house, or at least into the arms of Big Pharma drugs. It is difficult to be so continuously traitorous, as the poison flows freely:
  https://www.breitbart.com/europe/2019/04/07/brexit-madness-top-mp-warns-of-rising-mental-health-issues-in-parliament/

“Brexit madness” has overtaken the House of Commons according to one senior MP, warning about the rise in mental health issues among parliamentarians. Education Committee chair and senior Brexiteer Robert Halfon has said that “It feels like the Commons is having a collective breakdown — a cross between Lord of the Flies and One Flew over the Cuckoos Nest.” In comments reported by London’s Evening Standard, the Tory MP went on to say, “People are behaving in ways that were unimaginable even just a year ago, whether they be Remainers, Leavers or in-betweens. The Brexit madness has affected us all”. Mr Halfon is not the only Member of Parliament to express such concerns, with one female MP telling The Sun that parliament had become a “boiling pot of mental ill health”. One male MP was reportedly reduced to tears after finding out he won’t be able to go home to see his children next week, due to the cancellation of MP’s Easter recess. Comments made to a BBC radio programme by Members of Parliament claim Brexit was leading to politicians drinking more and avoiding people. One said it was “taking an emotional toil”.

Letter to The Editor - The ordinary folk of Britain have exposed the sham that modern two-party "democracy" has become

To The Age        Peter Hartcher's hostile dismissal of Brexit ("Nothing to be smug about", 9/4) misses the real significance of the 2016 referendum result. The biggest turn-out of voters in British history produced a clear “Leave” majority in defiance of all the meretricious Establishment propaganda for "Remain". 17 million Britons rightly turned their backs on the bureaucratic tyranny of the EU, into which they had been inveigled by acts of deception by politicians in the preceding half century. The Establishment has fought back by dishonouring the people's decision. That and that only is why there is a mess. Far from being a laughing stock, Britain is currently pitied by knowledgeable observers because of the way in which it is being deliberately mired, as a punishment, in constitutional confusion. However, the ordinary folk of Britain have exposed the sham that modern two-party "democracy" has become and this will not be forgotten.

Letter to The Editor - The House of Commons appear ready to ensure continued subservience to the EU

To The Age        There is more than mere subterfuge in the UK government's manoeuverings in the Brexit confusion ("'Trickery of the highest order': May splits votes to get the deal done"). There is corruption at the highest levels as financial elites, aided by "useful idiots", seek to frustrate the 2016 referendum decision to leave the EU. The EU itself is the creature of those elites, which are globalist rather than nationalist. They are more than willing to stamp on traditional British liberties, via the European Court of Justice, as their real interests are control of populations in order to add to their own power and profits. It is astonishing that a Conservative leader (Theresa May) and a majority of members in the House of Commons appear ready to ensure continued subservience to the EU rather than allow a "no deal" exit. Their behaviour is an anti-democratic disgrace.

Letter to The Editor - The Conservative Party needs to appoint a clearly pro-Brexit leader

To The Australian    There it is, almost hidden away in the twelfth paragraph of Greg Sheridan's piece "The Art of No Deal" (30-31/3): the essential issue at stake in the fight over Brexit. Sheridan notes that a UK choice of a no-deal Brexit, which apparently a majority of its MPs in the House of Commons will not embrace, would "liberate its courts and its life from the dim tyranny of the grossly misnamed European Court of Justice." Unrepresentative and self-interested elites the world over characteristically corrupt the judicial proceedings in their nations to imprison dangerous opponents and stifle effective criticism. Kafka, Koestler, Orwell and Solzhenitsyn in their famous novels all showed this wickedness in action and how difficult it is to get out from under the oppression, once it's in place. The EU has continued this dark tradition. The Conservative Party needs to appoint a clearly pro-Brexit leader and that person needs to call a general election precisely on the Brexit issue. It could function like a second referendum; and how foolish would UK voters be to let go such a golden opportunity of confirming British sovereignty and adherence to traditional freedoms!

Talking about a Revolution By Richard Miller

     Leftist musicians have fantasized about revolution, but over in France, a great whack of the population see revolution as the only hope of sorting the Great mess out:
  https://www.breitbart.com/europe/2019/03/24/four-in-ten-french-say-revolution-the-solution-to-countrys-problems/

“A newly released survey has claimed that nearly four out of every ten French believe that a full-on revolution is the best way to solve the country’s political problems. The poll, which was taken by polling firm IFOP, shows that 39 percent of French surveyed said that a revolution was needed to effect real change in the country, a figure much higher than elsewhere in Europe, Atlantico reports. In comparison, only 20 percent of Germans agreed that revolution was a viable political solution, and the number was even lower for Austrians and Poles, at just 14 percent. Consulting director at IFOP David Nguyen commented on the results, saying, “The first thing to say is that this is an absolutely spectacular number. Four in ten consider that a revolution would be a good solution: even if we do not know exactly what they put behind this word, it is the mark of a radical presence very present in the society.”
