I dislike Jared Kushner from just his facial expression; which is always a smirking, “I have just done you ignorant grunts over” look, much the same slick expression of pseudo-aristocratic arrogance that Macron has, which is probably the real reason by the yellow vest movement is so intense. It feels of off the righteous hatred of such a tyrant. Kushner is the man who directly delivers to his father-in-law, Donald Trump, the policies that the globalists want, and Trump the rump simply processes it, and takes the abuse of the Left, as a true cuck. Kushner should not have any role to play in the Trump government; it is a conflict of interest having family members in any role. https://www.mcclatchydc.com/news/politics-government/white-house/article226462025.html
The New York Times continues its attack upon all nationalism, taking a short breath from vilifying Trump, to blaming Israel for 9/11, as Pam Geller notes: https://gellerreport.com/2019/02/nyt-blames-jews-911.html/ https://www.algemeiner.com/2019/02/17/new-york-times-claims-osama-bin-laden-motivated-by-news-coverage-of-displaced-palestinians/ https://www.nytimes.com/2019/02/09/world/africa/africa-israel-palestinians-attacks.html
“The New York Times is suddenly and retroactively blaming Israel for motivating the terrorist attacks of September 11, 2001, without much evidence to support the claim. A recent Times news article about deadly attacks in Africa by affiliates of the terrorist group Al Qaeda blames them on President Trump’s decision to obey an American law that required him to move the American embassy in Israel to Jerusalem. The Times reports, “The attacks came fully seven months after President Trump moved the American Embassy in Israel from Tel Aviv to Jerusalem, the disputed holy city, which Mr. Trump recognized as the country’s capital. Widely seen as inflaming tensions and as a demonstration of the administration’s favoritism toward Israel in its long conflict with the Palestinians, the move drew condemnation at the time from many corners, including Al Qaeda and other extremist militant organizations.”
Probably most of us are getting too old for this sort of exercise, but we have children and grandchildren who need to keep fit. A good way of doing this is pushups, which have a spinoff in helping heart health: https://www.livescience.com/64789-pushups-men-heart-health.html?utm_source=ls-newsletter&utm_medium=email&utm_campaign=20190218-ls
“The ability to do a lot of pushups may be a sign not only of strength, but also of good heart health, a new study suggests. The study tested the stamina of middle-aged male firefighters. It found that those who could do more than 40 pushups in a row had a 96 percent lower risk of being diagnosed with heart disease or experiencing other heart problems over a 10-year period, as compared with those men who could do fewer than 10 push ups. However, because the study looked at only male firefighters, who have very active jobs, it's unclear if the findings apply to average Joes.”
For Pope Francis, migrants are so fantastic that they are the Lord’s “privileged ones.” Ok, but he is not content with his job in the Recruitment section of the Department of Immigration. No, communism is not to be feared either: https://www.jihadwatch.org/2019/02/pope-francis-urges-christians-to-overcome-fear-of-migrants-foreigners-are-also-the-lords-privileged-ones https://www.breitbart.com/faith/2019/02/19/pope-francis-christians-should-not-fear-looking-like-communists/
“Too many Christians shy away from the social gospel, Pope Francis said Monday, because they are afraid the Church will end up looking like the communist party. God asks us lots of uncomfortable and inconvenient questions, the pope said in his homilyat morning Mass at the Santa Marta residence in the Vatican, just like he did in the garden of Eden, asking Cain, “Where is your brother?” knowing full well that Cain had killed his brother Abel. We are all responsible for one another, Francis said, especially for the poor and needy, even though we often try to back out of this duty. “We ease our conscience a little by giving alms, as long as it does not hurt too much,” he said, because we fear that “with these social things the Church ends up looking like the communist party and this bothers us. Fine, but it was the Lord who said, ‘Where is your brother?’ Not the party, the Lord.”
This is what happens when the sheeple just let things go. There has been plenty of opportunity to oppose the buys ups in the past, but as with immigration, it is just let go, out of apathy, self-consumption and sheepish incomprehension: https://www.news.com.au/finance/real-estate/buying/fears-one-million-aussie-homes-could-soon-be-owned-by-foreign-buyers/news-story/c50a4112bab4f3ed8fae27277f313f54
“The country is at risk of becoming the “24th province of China” as we fail to “stem the tide” of foreign investors, an expert has warned. Australia is selling off natural resources, farmland and property to China at a “crazy” rate — putting us at risk of becoming the “24th province” of the East Asian behemoth. That’s according to real estate expert Doug Driscoll, who warned of the urgent need to start a national conversation about foreign ownership of residential property in particular. While interest from overseas buyers has decreased in recent years, the Starr Partners chief executive said our overall rate of foreign ownership was still alarmingly high. And he said a report released last month by Chinese international property portal Juwai.com showed there was now an “insatiable appetite” for Australian property among Chinese buyers, with our softening housing market boosting interest.
The documentary “Jordan Peterson Dismantled,” is linked below. The basic argument is, that although Peterson did early good work attacking feminism, it was not particularly original. What Peterson has done though in more recent times, is to attack nationalism from the perspective of a self-focussed individualism, one of the very things which has put the West in its present precarious position:
“A documentary exposing Jordan Peterson's agenda to subvert and destroy the rising political right wing, and neutralize European nationalism. This video completely exposes Peterson's anti-White agenda and his strategy for implementing it. Any Peterson fans who are not beyond saving will be deprogrammed by watching this video. Jordan Peterson's primary goal is to neutralize the political right and White identity. He does not care about the Marxist take over of our nations, in fact he was hired by the United Nations to help usher it along. Peterson's only reason for stepping into the limelight was because he saw a massive right-wing backlash fomenting, and realized it was going to destroy the left. His job is to implement "plan B", to steer the rising tide of nationalism into an impotent cul-de-sac of centrist individualism, giving our enemies just enough time to tip the demographic balance of our countries so that our destruction is sealed. Peterson is explicitly targeting young White males for indoctrination with an insidious political ideology he calls radical individualism. He has created a pseudo-religion self-help cult; he is delivering his ideology to the disaffected youth by combining it with a self-help regimen wrapped in empty religious metaphor. While our enemies are working tirelessly to destroy our nations in a ruthlessly calculated and organized fashion, Jordan Peterson is brainwashing a generation of young White men to be atomized individuals who perceive group cooperation based on ethnic identity and nationality as the height of evil. And in the process of doing so, Peterson and his friends are making untold millions of dollars.”
All dividends are a distribution of profits. Most modern Nations are profitable, although Nations don’t now do Profit and Loss Accounts. By way of example a Profit and Loss Account for the United States was done privately in Australia for the year 2014. Using US Federal Reserve economic data (FRED), US Bureau of Economic Assessment statistics, and some private research the profitability of the United States was affirmed. It showed that while $12.5 trillion of consumer goods were both produced and sold, the total aggregate income of all persons was only $10.1 trillion. This sum of consumer production over and above the total incomes paid to induce it, amounted to $2.4 trillion in total, and to $7,500 per person, or to $30,000 per American family of four.
The excess of consumer production over consumer incomes was financed by the United States’ total indebtedness increasing in 2014 by $2.3 trillion. Because America is profitable each year, it has to increase its debt each year to finance the consumption of that part of its consumer production which its incomes will not buy. Failing this, the Nation would go into recession and eventually into economic depression. This debt was supplied by the Reserve Bank in association with Private Banks, creating new and additional money and distributing it as debt owing to themselves. This is a regular occurrence every year. It might as easily have been supplied by a National Credit Authority with court-like powers, both calculating the National Dividend, and empowered to distribute it to all persons in equal measure and without discrimination. It would be distributed as a dividend, that is, debt free and without any interest or fees charged.
On 20th February The Australian published a substantial news report under the headline: ‘Australia “top pick for hate preachers”’. We learned that two Jews, Dvir Abramovich, chairman of the Anti-Defamation Commission, and Josh Burns, the preselected Labor candidate for the Melbourne seat of Macnamara, had appealed to Immigration Minister David Coleman to ban British writer David Icke from entry into Australia. Icke is a voluminous writer in the ‘alternative history’ field, some of whose work I looked at many years ago and decided was significantly unreliable. He struck me as comparable to that other extraordinary but deluded man, L. Ron Hubbard. I carry no flag for Icke’s work. His proposed tour was titled ‘Everything you need to know’, which suggests self-inflation.
However, The Australian began its report by labelling him a ‘Holocaust denier.’ It stated that he has campaigned to have ‘Holocaust denial’ taught in schools, that he claims that the Rothschild family are among the leaders of an ‘Illuminati’ that runs the world, that he believes that ‘a small Jewish clique’ helped cause various disasters including both the world wars, the Bolshevik revolution, the global financial crisis in 2008 and the September 11 attacks. He may not be entirely wrong in all of that; and these are topics which may require open discussion if we are to make some sense of contemporary politics, national and international. The fact that an unreliable egoist holds forth on them does not justify excluding them or him from our public forums. The scare campaign started by Burns and Abramovich looks to contain gross exaggeration; and a Jewish demand to curtail criticism of Jews appears to be special pleading.
Diamonds are useful in industry, for example in drill bits, but their main use is in jewellery. It is well known that the diamond market is a social construct; there are so many diamonds in the world, that if there really was a free market, the price would crash. Thus, quantities are carefully controlled to keep up the illusion, and the price. But Chinese artificial diamonds may change all of that: https://www.naturalnews.com/2019-02-19-chinas-man-made-diamonds-are-chemically-identical-to-the-real-thing.html
“The billion dollar business of diamonds is feeling threatened, not because of millennials who are under-spending on them or simply skipping them altogether, but because of the proliferation of synthetic or fake diamonds. Yes, you read that right: diamonds are now being faked to the level that the so-called synthetic ones are downright indistinguishable from actual, natural ones. And this has caused De Beers to quake in their proverbial boots. De Beers is an international corporation that specializes in diamond exploration, and they practically own the entire diamond industry. Now that synthetic diamonds are coming up as real, viable alternatives to their natural counterparts, they’ve begun performing certain counter-measures. The majority of the world’s synthetic diamonds originate from China, according to a report, and they were originally meant to be used in certain industrial purposes such as oil drilling. This is due to their inherent hardness as a material. But now, even though they have only been spreading mainly in China, De Beers believes that they pose a clear threat to the global diamond market as a whole. To counteract this problem, the company has reportedly invested tens of millions of dollars on methods to identify the synthetic versions of diamonds and prevent them from further spreading.
This story is from Natural news.com, and is about how a celebrity, no doubt well meaning and in good faith, promoted a self-help guru, who later down the track turned out to be, not what he seemed on first glance. https://www.naturalnews.com/2019-02-17-true-story-of-how-oprah-winfrey-helped-promote-a-mass-rapist-who-ran-a-child-slave-farm.html https://www.naturalnews.com/2019-02-07-spiritual-guru-of-brazil-ran-sex-slave-farm-sold-off-human-babies.html
“Back in 2010, talk show guru Oprah Winfrey dedicated an entire episode of her show to a self-professing “faith healer” with whom she claims she had a “blissful” encounter. But as we recently reported, this “faith healer” has since been exposed as a serial rapist who had actually been operating a massive child “sex slave farm” and “birth factory” behind his religious facade. At the time, Oprah was convinced that Joao Teixeira de Faria, more popularly known as “John of God,” was the real deal. She contends that she almost fainted upon first meeting him, as his presence was apparently too much for her to handle, causing her to feel “an overwhelming sense of peace.””
To lose weight and get that blood pressure down, the fish and vegetables diet strikes me as the best. It is palaeo, and Mediterranean combined, dropping the heavy grains and pasta and carbo-laden stuff like that. Simply fish and a plethora of high anti-oxidant rich vegetables. https://www.naturalnews.com/2019-02-19-compound-found-in-veggie-and-fish-promotes-heart-health.html
“A Polish study advises people with hypertension to eat a lot more fish and vegetables. Both types of food contain trimethylamine oxide (TMAO), a natural compound that supports the healthy functions of the heart.Trimethylamine oxide is metabolized by the liver. It is synthesized from trimethylamine, which is produced by the action of beneficial bacteria in the gut. People who are at risk for heart diseases often display high levels of trimethylamine oxide in their blood. But the exact process that increases plasma TMAO is vague. The effect of the compound on the circulatory system is also uncertain. Some studies reported that trimethylamine oxide appears to harm the circulatory system. A 2014 rat model by the Medical University of Warsaw (WUM) found that the hypertensive effects of a vasoconstrictor lasted much longer in healthy rats that experienced a 10,000 percent increase in blood TMAO during the course of two weeks. However, researchers also found that TMAO plasma levels significantly increased after eating fish and vegetables. These foods are neutral or even beneficial to the cardiovascular system. TMAO also protects deep-sea fish from the harmful effects of immense water pressure. Finally, it acts as a protein stabilizer.”
Over in Austria, women who are non-Muslims are wearing the hijab, and it is not primarily to celebrate diversity: https://sputniknews.com/europe/201902151072448678-austria-girls-hijabs-harassment/
“According to Doctor Marcus Franz, who used to serve as a lawmaker in the National Council, there are “problem zones” in the country’s capital where local girls are being forced to hide that they are Austrian. Former member of the Austrian National Council, Doctor Marcus Franz, stated in an interview to broadcaster oe24.TV that he knew fathers in Vienna’s "problem areas" who give their daughters hijabs in order not to let them be recognised as Austrians and protect them from harassment. He cited witnesses from his personal acquaintances in the 15th district of the Austrian capital. The man pointed to “permanent micro-aggression". He said girls are dressing differently than people in Austria are used to because of an “unhealthy aggressive attitude”. “Girls, young women as well as older women are simply afraid. You can observe this among people, you can see it plain and simple when you work in a social profession — as I do. And one should make a clear distinction between those who are new and those who have already been with us for a long time", he stated. Since 2015, Europe has been facing a migration crisis, with scores of refugees arriving from conflict-torn countries and crime rates being increasingly linked to the drastic influx of migrants all across the continent, particularly in Germany, France, Belgium, and even the comparatively well-off Austria. According to a Crime and Safety report by the United States Department of State, Austria is targeted by largely foreign criminals, with 64 percent of drug-related offences being carried out by criminals who are born abroad.”
With shutdowns of sites dealing with anything critical of vaccinations, we had better get a few “shots” in before all goes black, forever. Hence, the document below may be of interest, detailing how the Informed Consent Action Network and Robert F. Kennedy Jr. sued the US government and won on a vaccine safety issue. It was disclosed from the action that Health and Human Services had not filed any vaccine safety reports in over 30 years! So, how can any banning of internet criticism of vaccination be made, justifiably, when all of the data is not in? https://www.aimintegrativemedicine.com/aim-integrative-medicine-blog/why-kennedy-sued-the-government-over-vaccine-safety-won
“In May 2017, ICAN Founder, Del Bigtree, Robert F. Kennedy, Jr.. as well as other parties concerned about vaccine safety were selected by the White House to conduct a meeting with the Counselor to the Secretary of HHS, the heads of the National Institute of Health, NIH, the Center for Disease Control, CDC, and Food and the Drug Administration, FDA. Del Bigtree and Robert F. Kennedy, Jr. suspected that HHS was not fulfilling its critical vaccine safety obligations as required by Congress in The National Childhood Vaccine Injury Act of 1986. "The 1986 Act granted unprecedented, economic immunity to pharmaceutical companies for injuries caused by their products and eviscerated economic incentive for them to manufacture safe vaccine products or improve the safety of existing vaccine products. Congress therefore charged the Secretary of HHS with the explicit responsibility to assure vaccine safety. Hence, since 1986, HHS has had the primary and virtually sole responsibility to make and assure improvements in the licensing, manufacturing, adverse reaction reporting, research, safety and efficacy testing of vaccines in order to reduce the risk of adverse vaccine reactions. In order to assure HHS meets its vaccine safety obligations, Congress required as part of the 1986 Act that the Secretary of HHS submit a biennial reports to Congress detailing the improvements in vaccine safety made by HHS in the preceding two years."
This is very interesting, and bring together two of my great interests in life: Vikings and reindeer, and the eternal battle between them. It seems that the reindeer, having got tired of being speared by Vikings, got together with their reindeer mathematicians and came up with this strategy to defeat the tough axe-wielding guys, with the helmets with no horns, carrying big spears: https://www.livescience.com/64778-vikings-reindeer-cyclone.html?utm_source=ls-newsletter&utm_medium=email&utm_campaign=20190215-ls
“Vikings hunting reindeer in Norway were once confounded by "reindeer cyclones"; a threatened herd would literally run circles around the fierce hunters, making it nearly impossible to target a single animal. Filmmakers recently captured incredible aerial footage of one of these reindeer cyclones, which aired Feb. 13 on PBS in the documentary Wild Way of the Vikings, a program about Vikings and the wilderness they inhabited around A.D. 1000. One of the documentary's most striking scenes shows a re-enactment of a Viking hunt interspersed with real footage of reindeer herds. Reindeer were important to the Vikings for their meat, hides, antlers and bones, according to the film.

Trump, among his infinity of mistakes wants to have America’s largest immigration intake. This will destroy American jobs, all in the name of furthering the evil agenda of the globalists: https://www.breitbart.com/politics/2019/02/13/trumps-hint-to-increase-legal-immigration-automation-dooms-american-workers/
“President Trump’s hint that he will increase legal immigration levels and a pending automation doomsday that lawmakers have yet to regulate threatens millions of America’s working and middle class workers. This week, Trump reiterated for the third time in a few weeks that he believes the U.S. should be increasing already historic levels of legal immigration — where more than 1.2 million legal immigrants are admitted every year at the expense of American taxpayers who are forced to subsidize the scheme through depressed wages and fewer job prospects. Trump has suggested that the country does not have enough Americans to fill high-paying jobs in sectors like the automotive industry. Nonetheless, Bureau of Labor Statistics data tell a different story, one that is nowhere near a so-called “labor shortage,” as the business lobby has continued to falsely claim. There are at least 13 million working-age Americans who are either unemployed, not in the labor force but want a job, or who are working part-time jobs but want a good-paying full-time job.Immigration Reform Law Insititute (IRLI) Executive Director Dale Wilcox told Breitbart News that increasing legal immigration levels would subject those 13 million Americans to more foreign competition against mostly low-skilled workers. Wilcox said:
All individualists need to think seriously about whether there can be too much of a good thing. After all, sure there are cases of a lone individual taking a stand against the hordes, such as Horatius Cocles on the bridge, and the even more impressive Viking at Stamford Bridge: http://www.badassoftheweek.com/stamfordbridge.html
But, in general, biologists see humans as social organism, not solitary, and group cooperation is a defining quality. And that does not mean communism, it just means association. Otherwise, go hunt the sabre tooth tiger on your own! This, creates a problem, where a people like Western Europeans confront, via mass migration people who will cooperate together, and some with even a hive mind! Hence, the following story. https://www.takimag.com/article/love-is-now-a-hate-crime/
What does a socialist, bankrupt politically correct utopia look like? Like California. And, most people want to leave it, just as they do other failed socialist experiments: https://www.breitbart.com/politics/2019/02/14/majority-of-california-residents-want-to-leave-poll/
“A new poll reveals that 53% of California residents are considering leaving the Golden State because of the high cost of living. The “Trust Barometer” poll, by Edelman Intelligence, was conducted January 4-20 among 1,500 California residents, with a margin of error of 2.5%. A special oversample of 400 tech workers in the San Francisco Bay Area was also conducted, with a margin of error of 4.8%. The results are sobering. Nearly two-thirds, 62%, of respondents said they believed the best days of California were in the past.”
“The lady doth protest too much, methinks”: Hamlet Act III, Scene II. The remarks, now named by psychologists as the “Streisand effect,” https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Streisand_effect , occur when denying something obvious leads to a confirmation of its existence. An example of this occurred last year in former FBI director, James Comey’s calm that there was no Deep State at all! https://www.breitbart.com/politics/2018/12/23/james-comey-theres-no-deep-state/
“In testimony, former FBI Director James Comey exclaimed “there’s no deep state” before going on to suggest that workers risk their jobs by “speaking out” –purportedly against President Donald Trump. During testimony before the House Judiciary and Oversight and Government Reform committees last week, Comey was asked by Rep. Elijah E. Cummings (D-Md.) for suggestions on how the nation should get back “on track” after the “storm” it is currently weathering – a clear reference to Trump’s presidency. Comey responded by launching into mini-speech about the resilience of America, while insisting there is no “deep state” and urging people to speak out:
The media thrives on disasters – floods, cyclones, heat waves, droughts and fires - each one “the worst Evaaaah” (evaah since the last one). Each report of catastrophe is usually followed by a religious chant about “man-made global warming”. Pretending we can change the climate by waging a war on carbon dioxide is foolish and dangerous nonsense. But what we do need, urgently, is to weather-proof our essential infrastructure. When cyclones, floods, droughts and bushfires strike we need disaster-proof helipads, rail links, roads, bridges, water and electricity supply. Not one solar farm or wind turbine will survive a severe cyclone, and in wild, cloudy weather they will produce zero power. And giant batteries are just a short-term energy crutch, not a source of reliable energy. We cannot change the climate no matter what we spend. But we must adapt and prepare for the inevitable cyclones, floods, droughts and bushfires. There will always be one that challenges past records.
Three things are needed:To prevent catastrophic bushfires, we need to remove excess fuel with frequent small controlled fires.To reduce the severity of droughts and floods, we need more dams and weirs.And for everything, we need the continuous reliable electricity that comes from coal, gas or nuclear.
With gun banning in full swing, the question arises for countries like the United States, that do not have registration, what will the grassroots officials like police do when it comes to the crunch, and guns must be seized? https://www.zerohedge.com/news/2018-12-24/over-one-million-us-gun-owners-refuse-obey-ban
“This month, citizens were given a December 11 deadline on their new ban on standard capacity magazines. The law effectively turned one million law abiding gun owners into criminals, literally overnight if they failed to turn in the magazines. Somehow, New Jersey lawmakers thought insane individuals who want to carry out mass shootings would be lining up to turn in their 15 round magazines as anyone caught with one of these banned magazines is now committing a fourth-degree felony. However, even the law-abiding citizens are choosing to disobey—and that’s a good thing. According to Ammoland.com, who says they spoke with multiple police departments throughout the state, no one has turned in their magazines.
