The Muslim Superorganism Code, Decoded By Peter West

     The Muhammad Code (Feral House, 2016), by Harold Bloom, continues his long-term research into war and human violence: 

     In this highly readable, but still well-referenced book, Bloom details how Islam has pursued an agenda of conquest for 1,400 years. For example, by the time of the death of the prophet in 632 AD, Islam had conquered the biggest empire in history, an empire 11 times the size of the conquests of Alexander the Great, five times the size of the Roman Empire, and seven times the size of the United States.

The AI Singularity By Brian Simpson

     I covered the issue of AI becoming super smart and replacing humans in a previous article. As a footnote to that I have noted that this article:  

     Many AI gurus are quoted as giving their predictions about the year when robots become smarter than humans. The worst case scenario is that this will happen by 2030, which is not too long away in apocalyptic terms. It is incredible that this problem has even arisen, which shows the danger of allowing science and technology to be under the control of the evil elites and forces of global capitalism.

The Social Justice University By James Reed

     I hope that most readers at this site have been poisoned at the thought of the modern university. I report the absurdities and injustices whenever material comes my way. The latest:

“Over the past several years, we’ve seen America’s universities essentially turn into social justice training camps, where teaching about diversity is more important than U.S. history and making sure that all students have a safe space to turn to is more important than making sure they have the skills they need to be successful in “the real world.” It shouldn’t come as a surprise, therefore, that some schools are now hiring faculty members based solely on their commitment to social justice.

A Tough One: Intellectual Giants clash By James Reed

     Whoaaha…this is a problem. There is a major philosophical clash between two intellectual giants, loved by all of us at this site: Jordan Peterson and that great defender of the West, Canadian academic Ricardo Duchesne:

     Peterson argues that he is not an Alt Righter because he rejects identity politics, and instead is a classical liberal believing in the rights of the individual. So far, so good. From this position he has done enormous good critiquing all matter of politically correct nonsense. But, there is a limitation to this, as Duchesne notes:

FBI Treason Led to Florida Massacre? By John Steele

     There has been yet another US mass shooting, this time as Nikolas Cruz gunned down 17 of his school “mates”:

     Cruz has a history of violence and depression, and like most other “postal’ shooters (mass killers), was probably being treated with strong psychiatric drugs such as Prozac. Nevertheless, the mainstream media, and even some alternative sites had reported that Cruz, part Hispanic was a “white nationalist” (although various white nationalist sites reject this):

The True Face of Facebook By Paul Walker

     Facebook continues charging down the road of political correctness, with blocks imposed on various sites which it does not like:

As Zucky himself says: “For example, take the Wall Street Journal or New York Times. Even if you don’t read them or don’t agree with everything they write, most people have confidence that they’re high quality journalism. On the flip side, there are blogs that have intense followings but are not widely trusted beyond their core audience. We will show those publications somewhat less.”

Painting Obama By Charles Taylor

     Who can forget B. Hussein Obama, former prezzy of the USA, and there are some Leftoids that still think that he is, or should be. Others opt for Queen bee Hillary.

     In any case famous people like this indulge in having their portraits painted by politically correct artists. Obama and wifey have had a paint job done by African American artists. Obama was painted by New York painter Kehinde Wiley, known for his naturalistic artwork depicting black people in heroic and triumphant poses, painted Obama seated in a sea of leaves. Weird, indeed.

Meet the New Beatles By Peter West

     I hated John, Paul George and goofy Ringo at the time, but, boy, I prefer them to the new Beatles: 

     Alexanda Kotey and El Shafee Elsheikh, the remaining members of the notorious execution group nicknamed “The Beatles” were detained by US-allied Kurdish militia fighters in January this year. Mohammed Emwazi -  nicknamed Jihadi John - and Aine Davis, were called The Beatles as born in Britain, like the fab four, they had British accents.

State Tribunals and Judicial Power By Ian Wilson LL.B

     Parliaments, both state and federal have the power to confer judicial power on various tribunals. Today the vast number of tribunals that litter the judicial landscape do much of the heavy lifting in administrative and related fields of law: immigration review matters, guardianship law, consumer dispute issues, Centrelink review matters, and much more. Often tribunals have a flexibility that courts lack, with a review of the merits of the case, hearing it from the start, rather than just reviewing an issue of law. The Administrative Appeals Tribunal is a case, in reviewing Centrelink and other administrative matters.

     State parliaments can confer, or give, judicial power to State tribunals, but such tribunals cannot exercise Federal jurisdiction, that is, decide on “Federal; matters, because that would be contrary to the Constitution. However, there are areas where matters get tricky, such as seen in the case of Burns v Corbet; Gaynor v Burns [2017] NSWCA 3 (3 February 2017), where there is a dispute between residencts of two states, arising under state law determined by a State tribunal, the tribunal exercising judicial power, but  not being a Chapter III Court, as defined by the constitution. Is there an implied limitation on the legislative power of the State relative to sections 75 and 76 of the Constitution on such tribunals which are not Chapter III Courts? Is a State law which confers judicial power on such tribunals inconsistent with section 39 of the Judiciary Act 1903?

The Left’s Love of Islam By Peter West

     The Left’s support of Islam, including radical Islam, is now well know. It is therefore not surprising to hear that Jeremy Corbyn said that Islamophobia, the latest form of “racism’ is a major social problem. He said this at the Finsbury Park mosque in north London, where he gave a speech. And he said, not forgetting any one:

““The rise of extremist right-wing groups is a very serious threat not just to Muslims but to all minorities, and in fact to all Britons, and to the interwoven fabric that holds this country together. The way to combat this is to have open and frank dialogue; barring and banning can only breed further hate and division.”

China’s Campuses By James Reed

     There is only a slight murmur about the issue of the infiltration of China into the university sector in Australia, Australia being hyper-colonised and the intellectual elites being long seduced by the cult of Asianisation. But America is not so numb: 

“China’s massive foreign influence campaign in the United States takes a long view, sowing seeds in American institutions meant to blossom over years or even decades. That’s why the problem of Chinese financial infusions into U.S. higher education is so difficult to grasp and so crucial to combat.

Abbott and Immigration: It is About Time! By James Reed

     It took some time, but Tony Abbott at last, now that he has nothing to lose, is taking on the immigration monster: 

“Tony Abbott has seized on Peter Dutton’s claim that Australia needs to cut its migration intake and signalled he will renew his push to do so by linking migrant numbers to quality of living issues. On Monday the former prime minister said he would make the case for cutting migration to improve “stagnant wages, unaffordable housing and clogged infrastructure” in a speech in Sydney on Tuesday.

The Shape of Transgender Things to Come By Mrs Vera West

     There is much to report in transgender news. For example, parents of a 17-year old lost custody of her for opposing her wish for medical treatment:

“Judge Sylvia Sieve Hendon of Hamilton County, Ohio has allowed the girl to be taken into the custody of her grandparents – who support her medical transition – allowing them to make decisions that will further along her physical transition to the opposite sex.

Letter to The Editor - A complete rethinking of the nature of Jesus and the authority of the Bible is required

     Paul Kelly comments astutely on the current problems of traditionalists here (‘Bricks are falling from the conservative fortress’, 21/2), but does not penetrate to the true fault lines. One is the failure of our religious leaders to realise that a major reform of Christian sacred tradition must be undertaken. The decipherment of the Egyptian hieroglyphics and the coming together of all sacred traditions in our ‘global village’ have made this essential. A complete rethinking of the nature of Jesus and the authority of the Bible is required.

     A second major fault line has been the capitulation of too many Australians with leadership capacity to the various inroads on the principle of free speech. The firmest possible defence of intellectual freedom without reservation is also an essential for any restoration of conservative authority based on wisdom. Political bravery of the curate’s egg kind will not get us out of the mess; and the younger generations will not go out to battle while the trumpets give an uncertain sound.  NJ, Belgrave, Vic

Letter to The Editor - Planned Power Chaos

To ON TARGET          Seven Australian governments have made a mis-planned mess of Australia’s electricity industry. The federal government now plans to add more toxins to the mess – “five-year targets to cut emissions.”

     There was one big lesson from the 20th Century – coercive central planning always fails - it constantly destroys economic assets and human freedom. Just look at the human and economic costs of the grand plans of Stalin’s Russia, Hitler’s Germany, Mao’s China, Castro’s Cuba and Pol Pot’s Cambodia. Or compare East and West Germany when the Berlin Wall came down or North and South Korea now.

Yoghurt and White Supremacy… Sorry, Yoga By Mrs Vera West

     The thought of doing yoga, breath-taking stretches and the like, makes my joints ache, but not so much as political correctness about yoga: 

“White people who do a downward-facing dog are contributing to a “system of power, privilege, and oppression,” according to a Michigan State University professor. Shreena Gandhi, a religious studies professor at Michigan State, claims in an article she recently co-authored that Americans who practice yoga are contributing to white supremacy and promote the “yoga industrial complex.”

Immigration and the Sufferings of the World By James Reed

     If one reads the outputs of the Western multicult immigration industry, then it immediately strikes one that immigration is the solution to all of the world’s problems. That means that refugees must all go to the West, rather than solve their own problems in their own lands, as the West did in its own developmental stage. There is bounty to share with all, and nonsense like that.

     Fortunately, not all believe that immigration can solve all of the sufferings of the world:

All I Want for Christmas is my Two Front Teeth, Regenerated By tom North

     If you are like me with false teeth, you might find this interesting, if not amusing: scientists have discovered a way of making teeth repair themselves: 

“Sharpe [the research scientist involved] suspected he could dramatically boost teeth’s natural healing ability by mobilizing stem cells in the dental pulp. Earlier research had demonstrated the Wnt signaling pathway—a particular cascade of molecules involved in cell-to-cell communication—is essential for tissue repair and stem cell development in many parts of the body such as the skin, intestines and brain.

He Who Lives Without Discipline Dies Without Honour By John Steele

     I have heard that saying, of my title, many years ago, but remembered it whilst reading:

     It is apparently an old Icelandic saying, but is relevant today, as it was in the time of the Vikings. And, don’t be nervous, that is a Christian site. The above article, while addressed to survival situations is relevant to much of modern life, because we are increasingly moving into that sort of situation with rising unemployment and crime.

The Clothing of Sharia By Mrs Vera West

     Britain is fast becoming a sharia society, not only by immigration numbers, but by cultural changes: 

“London Modest Fashion Week will “celebrate” Britain’s growing sharia-compliant fashion industry — less than two weeks after women living under Islamic fundamentalist regimes risked imprisonment when they burnt their hijabs on No Hijab Day.
