Vaporised! By Brian Simpson

     Tech futurist Robert Tercek is  author of  Vaporized: Solid Strategies for Success in a Dematerialized World, (LifeTree Media, 2015). He addresses a problem which by now is well known to most of us, namely that there is a process of “vaporisation” occurring where former material industries are becoming dematerialised by digitalisation. A good example of this is given in Tercek’s discussion of what happened to Tower Records.:

     Tower Records on Sunset Boulevard, Los Angeles was considered to be one of the most famous record shops in the world, and went strong for 36 years. But then the shop, and others in the chain closed in 2006. Other record shops closed soon after, because the physical products that they sold were replaced by MP3 players and the dawn of digital music, of downloadable music and subscription streaming-audio services. An entire industry was “vaporised” or digitalised. This is the thesis of Vaporized:

Are We Alone in the Universe? By Brian Simpson

     For your interest; the possibility of vast alien megastructures blocking the light from the star KIC 8462852:

     If this is evidence of advanced alien life, then they must have solved the problem of how not to destroy themselves. Perhaps they channel their aggression into destroying other civilisations as in this forthcoming movie representation, Predator (2018):

Damned if You do; Damned if You Don’t By Mrs Vera West

     We all know by now that eating our greens is good for you, but is it? Can there be too much of a good thing, or better yet, can something which is generally healthy have very unhealthy side-effects?

“For a lot of people who watch their diet, leafy greens are a staple at every meal. Indeed, these are packed with essential nutrients that the body needs to function properly, but these also contain what’s known as an anti-nutrient, or compounds that disrupt the absorption of these nutrients. One of the most famous anti-nutrients is alcohol, which is known to slow down the conversion of macronutrients, as well as zinc and certain B-vitamins. Most leafy greens, on the other hand, contain oxalate (also known as oxalic acid), a naturally occurring anti-nutrient. In particular, these bind to minerals and create compounds such as calcium oxalate and iron oxalate, which the body eliminates in the stool or urine instead of using it. While normally found in plants, the body can also produce oxalates. Vitamin C, in particular, becomes oxalate after being metabolized. If the body doesn’t flush out oxalates, these can build up in the muscles, brain, and even the urinary system. Once this happens, oxalates turn into crystals and cause tissue damage and inflammation. just two cups of spinach, a staple ingredient in some green smoothies, could have as much as 15 grams of oxalates – already considered a potentially life-threatening amount.

Cultural Wars Hot Up By Chris Knight

     This article has everything by way of adventures in political correctness. The UK is a good, - no bad - example of a society undergoing meltdown; a Christian doctor has been fired merely for saying that gender is determined at birth:

“Dr. David Mackereth’s tenure within the government-run health system of the United Kingdom was exceptionally short-lived because of his position in support of the laws of nature, which apparently no longer have a place in England. Dr. Mackereth had originally been tasked with compiling independent reports about the true health status of Brits claiming disability benefits. Part of his assignment was to refer to interviewees only by their preferred gender pronouns – something that he simply couldn’t do because of his religious convictions. “I said that I had a problem with this,” Dr. Mackereth told the media. “I believe that gender is defined by biology and genetics, and that as a Christian the Bible teaches us that God made humans male or female. I could have kept my mouth shut but it was the right time to raise it.” Keep in mind that the 55-year-old had worked for the U.K.’s National Health System (NHS) for some 26 years prior to being let go for holding the apparently politically incorrect view that someone with male genitalia is a man, and someone with female genitalia is a woman. It’s not as if Dr. Mackereth had refused to evaluate self-identified transgenders, or even insisted upon forcing his views on them. He simply didn’t want to be forced to play the silly gender pronoun name – and for taking a stand for his own rights and freedoms, he was fired from his job.”

Leftist Balloon Goes Limp By Richard Miller

     President Trump has upset the UK (decay) applecart, with his statement that immigration is essentially destroying Britain.

“Donald J Trump’s explosive UK tabloid interview has “hit the establishment like a bombshell”, Nigel Farage has said, remarking that the U.S. President ‘gets’ the public’s concern over mass migration. Speaking on Breitbart News Daily on SiriusXM on Friday, after a tabloid interview with President Trump sent shockwaves across the globalist media, Farage asserted the President “recognises and understands” why immigration has become “the number one issue across all of European politics”. President Trump’s remarks to The Sun provoked fury from leftist British lawmakers, who branded his distress at seeing millions of third world migrants pour into Europe “racist”, and said the President’s criticism of London Mayor Sadiq Khan’s stance on terror was “Islamophobic”.

Eastern Europeans Have What it Takes to Survive By Richard Miller

     With all the grim news that pours daily from the West, at least some rays of hope come from Eastern Europe. Here is video footage of the Hungarian Minister of Foreign Affairs, in an interview with the BBC, calmly explaining that his country has the right to decide who they let in. It is as simple as that. To hell with human rights and the whole mess of politically correct nonsense produced in endless garbage cycles from the EU and UN elites.

     And, speaking of elites,  here is an article which has images of a top FBI agent, the images of which are now viral, which are disturbing to say the least. The agent looks more “possessed’ than characters out of a Hollywood horror movie, and even Donald Trump junior Tweeted: “This guy has to be the creepiest person in America. OMG.” The message is in the eyes. Could we really be ruled by a Satanic reptilian class of extra-terrestrial aliens, as some tin-foil hat sites say? A real live “lizard illuminati”?

More Cuckism from the Catholic Side of Things By Peter West

     The Catholic Church reads like a branch of the Department of Immigration and Multicultural Affairs, whatever it is called now. First, it was the Pope, now it is the entire structure of the Vatican clamouring for mass immigration to the West, unending.

“Cardinal Anders Arborelius said in an interview Thursday that although many world leaders do not follow his advice, Pope Francis has a “prophetic voice” regarding immigration and many people are in fact listening to him. Speaking with Crux, a U.S.-based online Catholic website, the bishop of Stockholm said that “not many political partners” follow Francis totally, but “people of all creeds and opinions are listening to him, so there is always a possibility for him to help people open up for a more positive outlook on migration.” The pope himself has said that this is indeed his goal, to effect a “change in mindset” regarding immigration. Arborelius, who received the cardinal’s hat from Pope Francis last year, said that despite the rise in populism and nationalism he does not think “that the entire European project is in danger,” but lamented the fact that “every nation is eager to follow its own policy in these matters.” The cardinal said that he regretted Sweden’s tightening of its immigration policy in response to a sharp increase in violent crimes linked to migrants. Like so many countries, he said, Sweden “has changed its attitude and it is much more difficult for refugees to enter the country. I am sorry that Sweden’s policy is not as positive as Pope Francis thought.”

Mexico’s Wall; the West’s Open Borders By Charles Taylor

     As we all know, Trump’s proposed wall, which he never intends to build, has become the new Vietnam War symbol for a spoilt generation with too much time and money on their hands. Hollywood monsters and freaks,  arise to outdo themselves in poor acting to show fake  outrage, always looking to see how their performance goes down with their degenerate peers. But, who should pay attention to people who make money pretending to be somebody they are not? Isn’t that a paradigm case of mental illness?  For all of this sound and fury, especially from Mexico who consider it their divine right to conquer the United States by illegal immigration, Mexico is building its own wall:

“No shortage of Mexican officials and citizens have also been critical of POTUS Trump’s promises to prosecute all illegal border crossers and to build a “big, beautiful fence” all along the U.S. southwest border. Mexico’s newly-elected president, Andrés Manuel López Obrador, or AMLO, was also critical of the border wall. Yet now he’s committed to building a virtual border wall, so to speak, along his country’s southern and northern borders. You can’t make this stuff up. In an interview with Bloomberg, AMLO’s incoming security chief, Alfonso Durazo, said he and his boss will be building a new border police force aimed at interdicting illegal immigrants from Central and South America that have long used Mexico as a land corridor to the United States. The idea is that the new force will act as a ‘wall’ to prevent illegal immigration, as well as drugs, weapons, and human trafficking into and through Mexico. “We’re going to create a border police force that will be highly specialized,” Durazo said in an interview. “They need to apply the law.” Yes, Left-wing America, even Mexico has laws against illegal immigration. Go figure.”

Cover Up that Computer, Now! By Brian Simpson

     I remember seeing a photograph of Zuckerberg by his laptop, and he had the webcam covered. I thought: yes, they are watching us, indeed right now. Looks like this is correct:

“Hackers are using webcams to turn people into ‘slaves’ by secretly recording them through their computer. A security expert has warned that those who don’t cover their webcams risk being blackmailed by hackers who have taken incriminating footage of them. The researcher said communities of cyber criminals exist where users boast of the unsuspecting people who they watch ‘for fun’ through hacked webcams. The best way to protect yourself is using a sticker to cover your device’s camera, a technique used by Mark Zuckerberg and ex FBI-Director James Comey."

A Return to Barter By James Reed

     After economic collapse, comes barter, where people set up an alternative economy and trade what little they have left. Barter has its problems, such as finding someone willing to exchange the goods you want, for the goods you have, but beyond that, it is only sustainable for as long as the basic goods exist. Without new production, things will then go back to hunting and gathering.

“In the wake of socialist Venezuela’s massive hyperinflation, citizens have returned to the original monetary system in order to survive. While it is virtually impossible to visualize the inflationary trend in Venezuela, Bloomberg’s Cafe Con Leche index signals a roughly comparable level of 43,478%. More absurdly, annualizing the last three months of data, paints an even more dismal picture: inflation of 482,153%. Looking at just the past month, Reuters reports that June inflation accelerated to 128.4%, the fastest this year, from 110.1% in May, according to opposition legislator Angel Alvarado. Even more shocking, food prices rose by 183% in June. “It is by far the worst hyperinflation suffered by a Latin American country,” Alvarado said in an interview. The barter system is now prevalent in the collapsed economy of the authoritarian dictator, Nicolas Maduro.

Trump on the Death of Britain By Bruce Bennett

     President Donald Trump has delivered a solid punch to the insane European cult of globalism and mass immigration and a multitude of other nationally suicidal things. Here is his politically incorrect shopping list:

•    Accused EU leaders of destroying its culture and identity by allowing in millions of migrants•    Tore into London Mayor Sadiq Khan for not standing up to terrorists•    Blamed Khan for spiralling crime in the capital•    Insisted former Foreign Secretary Boris Johnson would make “a great Prime Minister”•    Denied once branding Theresa May a “bossy schoolteacher”•    Maintained he would keep ties with Russian tyrant Vladimir Putin despite the Salisbury Novichok poisonings•    Demanded Britain and other Nato countries spend more on defence•    Spoke of his sadness at feeling unwelcome in the capital by anti-Trump protesters•    Claimed millions of Brits backed his policies•    Told of his pride at taking wife Melania to meet the Queen

Barking Dogs Drive Women and Uncle Len Crazy By Uncle Len, Nerves on a Wire

     Uncle Len has not been sleeping as well as he should. First, the cold; so cold in the tool shed which I live in that even the cockroaches are rugging up. I have seen the smarter ones lighting little fires to keep warm on the cold cement shed floor. Then there are the barking dogs; legions of them that roam the vast urban wastelands of Adelaide searching for anything, or anyone to eat. One dare not venture out of doors when the wild beasts roam. Just ask …  this poor woman:

“A woman who says her mental health is deteriorating as a result of barking dogs near her home believes urgent change is needed to stop people being driven crazy. For four years Jane in Adelaide’s inner south-east has been trying to cope with barking from two neighbouring properties, including a little “shrill” dog just metres from the interior of her home. “I think she’s got separation anxiety,” she told ABC Radio Adelaide Mornings program. “She could go from 6:00pm to 10:00pm at night, barking most of that time.” Jane recorded evidence of the dog barking relentlessly for nearly an hour-and-a-half from a backyard while its owners were out on Australia Day in 2015. The dog is excited and does not appear to be barking at anything in particular.”

If You don’t Like it Leave: Europeans By Richard Miller

     You have all heard those dreadful racist white people telling migrants to like it or go home. Don’t they always get taught a delicious lesson from the system, eh? Well, here is a twist of lemon to that old tale:

“Tunahan Kuzu, the political leader of the DENK party in the Netherlands, has caused some serious controversy, Dutch broadcaster NOS reports. “If they don’t like a changing Netherlands in which people with different cultures live… like in the city of Zaandam or the neighbourhood of Poelenburg, they should get lost,” Kuzu says in an interview. Kuzu’s DENK party is a controversial party that is rapidly growing in Dutch urban areas. It especially performs well in areas with high Muslim populations, for example in western Amsterdam (Amsterdam Nieuw-West).’     Of course if European whites do not behave themselves, then the police are getting special training to deal with recalcitrant trouble makers who want to preserve what they think is a culture and people worth preserving:

Why Don’t They Wake up to the Fake media? By Charles Taylor

     Here are two stories which may be of interest, detailing how “comic”  Sacha Baron Cohen got to interview two conservative figures, and make them look like gooses. How is it not possible to detect these sorts of people? Why, just why do people always flock like geese being herded when the media comes on the scene? Is it the desire for attention? The fragile human need to be part of the in-group, even though the in-group despises you? We see this psychological phenomenon regularly. It is an extreme vulnerability in anyone seriously wanting to resist tyranny as the mainstream media have been shown by the entire Trump affair, to be far from a friendly force.

     He seems to have smelt a rat, but did not walk out of the interview, or simply challenge him.  A fundamental mistake, or is it simply the curse of the low IQ?

Death By Globalism By James Reed

     Here in Australia, Mal and the rest of the gang tell us all of the time that globalism is good; if greed is good was the mantra of the 1980s, today it is globalism that can cure everything form eroded teeth to footrot. However, some folk out there are not buying it:

“The city of Danville, Virginia sits in the bellybutton of the Blue Ridge Mountains, a hat-toss over the North Carolina border and about 85 miles northwest of Raleigh. It’s low hill country and Danville straddles the frothy, hocolate-milk waters of the Dan River. Downtown, once a booming trade district, today is a decomposed industrial husk, a tidy cluster of silent rectangles ensnared by broad, ghostly thoroughfares built for a time in the not-so-distant past when people and goods poured in and out of town. Those days are gone, perhaps never to return. The story of Danville is one echoed in countless communities across the country, a gutted middle class left for dead in the wake of sweeping international trade deals in Washington, applauded by liberal economists and a lockstep media portraying such policies as inevitable, ultimately good, and a win for the American consumer–a narrative usually coupled with condescending and disdainful attitudes toward displaced workers for a perceived inability to sprint ahead with the times.”

A Crazy diet From Self-Help Guru Jordan Peterson

     Here is Jordan Peterson promoting the alleged benefits of a “carnivore” diet, eating nothing but meat:

     Such a diet may lead to weight loss in the very short term, due to the radical reduction in carbohydrates such as sugars, but there are longer term dangers. For one thing, the body needs vitamins and minerals that meat does not have, as well as fibre for gut and bowel health. So, while Dr Peterson has many good things to say in opposing political correctness and feminism, the diet material needs to be understood as just his opinion. A balanced philosophy, and life, requires a balanced diet.

John Cleese leaves Multicult England By Richard Miller

     England, whatever that once was, is set to lose one of its most loved comics, John Cleese, who is moving to the Caribbean in November 2018.

     Cleese made headlines by lamenting that immigration was changing England for the worse, a claim more recently made by President Trump:

Europe’s Invasion Continues By Richard Miller

     Over in Germany, the chattering class are getting very excited, while drinking whatever foul drinks they drink, over the dawning reality of complete ethnic replacement of the Nordic Germanic people, that is, racial eliminationism. For example:

     My god, it is in German, whatever that language was. But, there is still a historical record of the language the so-called German people spoke, and the article translated by my magical oracle says:

America: A Failed State By Charles Taylor

     A view from the sensible Left about the future of America; it does not have one. According to John Ralston Saul, America is a failed state, and the inevitable consequences of this will follow:

“Our “corporate coup d’état in slow motion,” as the writer John Ralston Saul calls it, has opened a Pandora’s box of evils that is transforming America into a failed state. The “unholy trinity of corruption, impunity and violence,” he said, can no longer be checked. The ruling elites abjectly serve corporate power to exploit and impoverish the citizenry. Democratic institutions, including the courts, are mechanisms of corporate repression. Financial fraud and corporate crime are carried out with impunity. The decay is exacerbated by the state’s indiscriminate use of violence abroad and at home, where rogue law enforcement agencies harass and arrest citizens and the undocumented and often kill the unarmed. A depressed and enraged population, trapped by chronic unemployment and underemployment, is overdosing on opioids and beset by rising suicide rates. It engages in acts of nihilistic violence, including mass shootings. Hate groups proliferate. The savagery, mayhem and grotesque distortions familiar to those on the outer reaches of empire increasingly characterize American existence. And presiding over it all is the American version of Ubu Roi, playwright Alfred Jarry’s gluttonous, idiotic, vulgar, narcissistic and infantile king, who turned politics into burlesque.

How Humanity Ends? By Brian Simpson

     Remember Hen Kissinger? How could we forget him? Well, he’s back, writing for The Atlantic, about the dangers of the AI revolution, and the article is a good one:

“What would be the impact on history of self-learning machines—machines that acquired knowledge by processes particular to themselves, and applied that knowledge to ends for which there may be no category of human understanding? Would these machines learn to communicate with one another? How would choices be made among emerging options? Was it possible that human history might go the way of the Incas, faced with a Spanish culture incomprehensible and even awe-inspiring to them? Were we at the edge of a new phase of human history?” Kissinger goes on to note the expected benefits of AI in numerous fields, such as medicine, but is deeply concerned about possible areas of failure, ranging from rogue AI that seeks to destroy humanity, to AI that makes human explanations somewhat redundant:
