MAGA: Make America Garbage Again! By Charles Taylor

     The world, especially the West, but also the Second and Third Worlds, are rapidly spirally into violence and social breakdown, and we are foolish to ignore this or put our heads in the sand, for we are likely to be kicked hard in the butt by reality: http://preparedness.news/2017-05-12-venezuelan-protesters-have-begun-pelting-government-police-with-poop-bombs.html.

America, as always is a show case of what is to come, and is rapidly falling apart: http://rioting.news/2017-05-07-the-big-breakup-residents-in-a-half-dozen-states-talking-secession-we-are-no-longer-one-nation.html,  and we can expect little old Australia to be only a few years behind in the disintegration stakes. The battles of American Civil War II (https://www.amazon.com/Civil-War-Two-Breakup-America/dp/0929408179), are already taking place on the streets: http://takimag.com/article/the_battle_of_new_orleans_gavin_mcinnes#axzz4h0Vos7dR.

Anne Coulter’s Tweet Twittered by Twitty Twitter By Bruce Bennett

     US journalist firebrand Ann Coulter, someone we don’t have the equivalent to here in Australia, has been given a swift smack on the knuckles by Twitter for this alleged case of “hate speech”: Ann Coulter posted a link to a recent article on her titled “To Say, ‘Stop Raping Me!’ In English, Press ‘1’ Now” on Twitter earlier this week. She added the comment, “Liberals are all for rape, provided that the penis forcibly inserted in you is attached to an illegal immigrant.” From: http://www.breitbart.com/tech/2017/05/13/ann-coulter-tweet-flagged-as-hate-speech-by-twitter/.

     Twitter said that the comments violated its “hateful conduct policy,” which defined “hateful conduct” as:•    violent threats;•    wishes for the physical harm, death, or disease of individuals or groups;•    references to mass murder, violent events, or specific means of violence in which/with which such groups have been the primary targets or victims;•    behavior that incites fear about a protected group;•    repeated and/or non-consensual slurs, epithets, racist and sexist tropes, or other content that degrades someone.

A Balanced Budget?

     Yet another treasurer bows to the gods of “the balanced budget” and “the surplus”.A balanced budget is not necessarily good.Most of the dreary comrade societies aimed at a balanced budget – “We take 100% of your income and spend it all”.There is only one tax on the people and that is government spending.The treasurer needs to slash that big tax. All else is flummery.Viv Forbes, Rosevale, Qld This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it.

Look, Up in the Sky…It’s Space Junk! By Brian Simpson

    It is no conspiracy, there really is a lot of space junk floating above the Earth, in orbit: http://collapse.news/2017-05-05-space-pollution-reaching-dangerous-levels-as-750000-pieces-of-debris-are-orbiting-earth.html; http://www.telegraph.co.uk/science/2017/04/21/750000-pieces-debris-orbiting-earth-threaten-future-spaceflight/.

    There are over 750,000 hunks of dangerous material orbiting the Earth, coming from 5,250 space launches since 1957. These objects are larger than one cm and there are an estimated 166 million pieces of junk larger than one mm, all of this material traveling faster than a bullet. It is somewhat surprising that more damage has not occurred to modern satellites given that they are essentially in a shooting gallery.

The War of Open Borders By James Reed

    Back in the days when people seriously regarded Trump as an opponent of globalism and open borders, rather than being just another neo-conman stooge,  Salon writer Anis Shivani wrote a piece, “Everyone’s Wrong on Immigration: Open Borders are the Only Way to Defeat Trump and Build a Better World.” : http://www.salon.com/2017/03/15/everyones-wrong-on-immigration-open-borders-are-the-only-way-to-defeat-trump-and-build-a-better-world/. He quotes studies showing that world economic output would double if people could freely move wherever they wanted, which means, to the West from the Third World in their billions. Nations are not like homes he says, but are abstractions, only as good as the freedom within it.

    This sort of argument is advanced purely for the West to take migrants. India, China and Japan are exempt from taking in the tens of millions of poor Africans, or the billions of them in the future. To suppose that this would increase economic output is just economic theology, because it is more likely to lead to the collapse of the West rather than any economic revival. Let India and China take in proportionately more migrants than the West, and then maybe we should think about it.

The Universal Lesson of East Timor By John Pilger



Ref: http://www.informationclearinghouse.info/Filming undercover in East Timor in 1993 I followed a landscape of crosses: great black crosses etched against the sky, crosses on peaks, crosses marching down the hillsides, crosses beside the road. They littered the earth and crowded the eye.   The inscriptions on the crosses revealed the extinction of whole families, wiped out in the space of a year, a month, a day.  Village after village stood as memorials.

Kraras is one such village. Known as the "village of the widows", the population of 287 people was murdered by Indonesian troops.

Charles Ferguson’s 'The Great News' (1915)

This article stemmed from reading a paper written by an Indian chap on a proposal for a National Dividend for India.  An excellent paper, it has just one small historical error:  from his readings, the chap believed that A.R. Orage coined the term ‘social credit’ which was published in an edition of 'The New Age'. Historically, this was not so, and historical accuracy is important, so this error will be corrected.

But it did send me back to Charles Ferguson’s 'The Great News' (1915).

Paul Keating says neo-liberalism is at 'a dead end' after Sally McManus speech

Ref: http://www.smh.com.au/federal-politics/political-news/paul-keating-says-neoliberalism-is-at-a-dead-end-after-sally-mcmanus-speech-20170329-gv9cto

Former prime minister Paul Keating - architect of some of the most profound economic reforms in the country's history during the 1980s - has launched a surprise critique of the liberal economic philosophy he once championed, declaring it has "run into a dead end"... Mr Keating made his remarks in response to a speech delivered by the new leader of the ACTU, Sally McManus, at the National Press Club in Canberra on Wednesday...Mr Keating's response will surprise many who have seen him as a hitherto staunch defender of open markets, and key force in modernising the Australian economy. He also presided over some of the federal government's earliest privatisations and the floating of the dollar. His shift in rhetoric will be grist to union attacks on the government and the business community over growing job insecurity and flat-lining wages...

Battery Baloney by Viv Forbes


Every day some green energy promoter or a battery salesman tells us how green energy with battery backup will supply Australia’s future electricity needs.A battery stores energy. Energy can be stored using lead-acid, nickel/cadmium, lithium, molten salt, pumped hydro, hydrogen, flywheels, compressed air or some other smart gizmo. But NOT ONE battery produces new energy – they simply store and discharge energy produced by other means. They all deliver less energy than they consume. Moreover, to manufacture, charge, use and dispose of batteries consumes energy and resources.

The idea of producing reliable grid power from intermittent green energy backed up by batteries looks possible in green doodle-diagrams, but would be absurdly inefficient and expensive.

Katter calls for minor parties to come together and don’t forget the Culleton factor

Ref: https://cairnsnews.org/2017/03/13/one-nation-wa-election-fall-out/KAP Member for Kennedy, Bob Katter watched Pauline Hanson’s One Nation Party’s performance in the Western Australia (WA) election closely. It is Mr Katter’s little party, the KAP – who stand to gain or lose the most from One Nation’s performance in the looming Qld election.

Mr Katter said, “Anyone in Qld who thinks One Nation is dead in the water is badly misreading the situation. The LNP is toxic in WA, but the difference in Qld is, so is the ALP (as well as the LNP).“The disaster of One Nation giving all their preferences to Liberals, and voting with them all the time in Canberra… (This brought down Tony Windsor who was always voting with the ALP), One Nation is beginning to look like a LNP lamb in wolf’s ‘Third Force’ clothing, the Hanson Party must realise the reason people vote for them is because they’re not one of the majors.

The Argument from Robots is Overrated by Chris Knight

One common rejoinder made to Donald Trump’s pledge to bring back jobs to America, is that all the old jobs have gone, replaced by automation. This sort of critique was recently made by Robin Pagnamenta, “Donald is a New Class of Luddite Doomed to Defeat by Automation,” The Australian, January 31, 2017, p. 9. Thus, welders cost about $ US 25 an hour to employ, but a robot welder would only cost $US 8. Presumably this would apply to any job one cares to name.

The fallacy in the argument is that while all other things being equal, the welding example is true, only a minority of manufacturing tasks are completely automated; one estimation is that 10 percent of manufacturing tasks can be done by robots at present: http://www.dailymail.co.uk/sciencetech/article-2946704/Cheaper-robots-replace-factory-workers-study.html. This figure will grow, of course, in the future. Thinking machines can replace everyone, and maybe even the 1 percenters will be replaced as well in the future.

Harvesting Bodies in France by Brian Simpson

This is one way the future could go! There is a great concern in the medical community about the shortages of human organs for transplant purposes. Some advocate a free market trade in organs (i.e. the freedom to sell a kidney), while others hope that advances in science, such as the recent creation of a pig with human cells, could lead to new organs being grown from human stem cells:http://www.sciencealert.com/it-s-alive-the-first-human-pig-hybrid-has-been-created-in-the-lab.

France, however, passed a law that took effect on January 1, 2017, that gives “presumed consent” to organ donation. Thus, everyone is presumed to be an organ donor, unless they object and enter their names on a National Rejection Register:http://www.naturalnews.com/2017-01-26-new-law-in-france-presumed-consent-means-everyone-automatically-becomes-an-organ-donor-you-have-to-opt-out.html

TPP – The Madness of Unfree Trade By James Reed

Here’s a headline for you: “PM Taunts Trump With China Push” (The Australian, January 25, 2017, p. 1) And how is Mal Turnbull doing this “taunt”? Is he raising his fingers to his nose and saying “Nay, Nay!” No, he is inviting China to take the US’s place because he is so fanatical about “free trade.” Never mind that China is one of the most protectionist countries on Earth, that does what it likes.

Never mind that sitting next to this article is in bold: “Fears Grow of China Confrontation Over Disputed Islands,” which says that the danger of a military confrontation between the US and China has grown after Trump’s administration has pledge to defend islands in international waters from being swallowed up by the Chinese dragon.

"The Delusion of Super-Production" - C. H. Douglas. English Review, December, 1918

It is hardly necessary to draw attention to the insistence with which we are told that in order to pay for the war we must produce more manufactured goods than ever before--a powerful section of the Press would have the whole military, political, social and industrial policy of the Allied Governments directed to the purpose, that, when by a complete victory we have acquired control of raw material and disposed of our most dangerous competitor, we may adjust our internal differences and settle down to an unfettered era of commercial activity, from which all other desirable things will, it is suggested, proceed naturally.

There are an almost infinite number of aspects to this proposition which is not dissimilar, so far as it goes, from that with which Germany went to war: it is possible to attack it from the point of view of the historian, the psychologist, or even the physiologist. It is even possible that certain quite indispensable suffrages have still to be obtained for it. But it is sufficiently interesting to take it as it stands on a frankly material, "practical" basis, and see what are its logical consequences.

The Great TPP Battle: Turnbull’s Last Stand by James Reed

The fight is one. Malcolm Turnbull, Australia’s great “Big Australia”, mass migration globalist, is in love with the TPP. There is no problem about the loss of Australian legal sovereignty or jobs. He is, above all else, a globalist.But Bill Shorten has smelt the battle smoke in the wind from the Trump triumph and has joined with the unions and the Greens in opposing it. Turnbull was outraged and called the Opposition leader a “shallow populist.” Well, it is a start. Worst, he said that Shorten had betrayed the interests of Australian “families!” (The Australian, January 17, 2017, p. 1)

What Australian “families’ do you think he is referring to? Those working class families that will be destroyed by waves of cheap migrant labour, even vaster than the swamping that is now occurring? Surely not. He must be thinking of the capitalist elite families of the upper crust of Australia who benefit now from mass migration and its demographic replacement of Anglo-Australia and stand to benefit more from globalist deals like the TPP. The big end of town.Clearly what Australia needs is an alternative nationalist leader many orders of magnitude stronger than Trump to clear up over 70 years of civilisational decline.

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!

The Workless Future by James Reed

The social credit writers of the League have been producing some very good work on dealing with the issue of the 'end of work'. Here I simply want to mention that I am seeing more material published on this in the mainstream press, which is no doubt a testing ground for what is to come.There have been reviews of a new book on this topic by Tim Dunlop, Why the Future is Workless, (New South, 2016). Neo-liberalism combined with robotics has created a new class of people, the “precariat,” to use economist Guy Standing’s term. These people have uncertain part-time or short-term work, and consequently an uncertain future. And the class of the precariat will grow, with Oxford University researchers predicting that 47 percent of existing jobs will disappear in the next 20 years.As an example, just around the corner, 3D printers might “print” out an entire house!

To deal with this social challenge there will need to be fundamental changes and Dunlop is sympathetic to the idea of a universal basic income. There is no mention of social credit, and the limitations of the basic income scheme have been discussed at this site.One of the things following from the robotics revolution, ironically enough, is the end of globalism, or at least in part. Jamie Walker, “Robots Help Bring Jobs Back Home,” The Weekend Australian, November 19-20, 2016, p. 15, points out that both cheap energy and robotics will result in more reshoring because robots are cheaper than overseas workers. There will not be, though, many new jobs created, and those that are, will be essentially in getting the intelligent machines to work, if they are lucky, before even they are replaced.Thus, we can indeed take it that work as we know it has come to an end and any discussion and future planning should proceed from that point.

Trade Merges into Organised Crime by James Reed

One of the inconvenient truths that the “let’s make Australia part of Asia” mania do not openly discuss, is the penetration of Asian organised crime into Australia. A recent article, “China Deals 'Launder Drug-Trade Billions,’” The Australian, November 23, 2016, p. 7, quotes the NSW Crime Commission, in stating that trade deals with China are being used as cover for multi-billion-dollar money laundering, from drug profits.

The NSW Crime Commission said that the over 600 major crime figures are “beyond its reach.” Its law-enforcement efforts have been ineffective in dealing with the problem of the masses of drugs coming into Australia.The problem now is that Australia, in becoming part of Asia, has also absorbed the Asian crime networks as well. These, no doubt, deeply penetrate into the heart of government, as probably older mafia networks did, and still do.  At the deepest level, government, finance and crime all connect up in the Two Towers.

Letter to The Editor

There is some concern over the demise of the Trans Pacific Partnership (TPP) since President-elect, Donald Trump, has announced the US will withdraw from the agreement. There need be no concern really.  Donald Trump is withdrawing because it will be in the interest of his country and the same applies to Australia.

We can agree to trade in a much more simple way where goods can be exchanged without hundreds of pages of fine print which implicate us beyond reasonable trade matters. Australian primary production has world-wide appeal, so selling it does not present any problem.KG, Naracoorte  SA
