Why the Modern PC University is a Sick Joke on the Long-Suffering Taxpayers By James Reed

     It all started as an academic experiment; a group of perhaps the last free-thinking academics decided to submit a series of “fake” papers on politically correct “grievance studies” topics. One such paper was about how dogs in a park committed rape, of female dogs. This paper received a recognition of excellence by the feminist establishment for pushing the gender agenda to a place where it had not ben before. However, some journalists who still engaged in investigation, smelled something fishy, or is it “doggy,” and exposed the fake paper. Then, at least for the untenured philosopher on the team, Peter Boghossian, the system turned its attention to him, much like some obese man turns to swat an annoying biting insect:  https://www.naturalnews.com/2019-02-11-university-professor-targeted-by-liberals-gender-studies-is-junk-science.html   https://www.dailywire.com/news/41887/professor-who-published-fake-gender-studies-papers-ashe-schow

“A Portland State University (PSU) professor who took part in an academic hoax to prove that academia turns a blind eye to reason when gender issues are involved is now facing disciplinary actions. PSU philosophy professor Peter Boghossian is being investigated by his employer for committing a “human subjects” ethics violation by contributing to the hoax, which itself was an academic study. Filmmaker Mike Nayna, who previously documented Boghossian and his associates’ attempts to call out so-called Grievance Studies for their lack of academic rigor, announced the professor was under fire Saturday night in a tweet. “Portland State University has determined that @peterboghossian committed a “human subjects” ethics violation for his involvement in the Grievance Studies probe. Further charges of falsifying data are currently under review,” Nayna wrote.

What is the Current State of Free Speech in the United States? By Chris Knight

     We received some good feedback from an American intellectual dissident who liked one piece that I did on political correctness and free speech. She linked her article giving a survey of free speech in the United States, land of the once free, and gave us permission to reproduce it. The article is excellent, and we hope readers find it informative. For the minority of readers who may find the near apocalyptic concerns of some writers, somewhat exaggerated, it is important to realise that many thinkers are now going down the same path, as many of us, being concerned with a collapse of social institutions. If a number of sources, to take an example, told you that there was a plan by a crime mob to assassinate you tonight, I suppose all rational beings would take this seriously, and plan accordingly, even if it is all a wee bit grim. Grim, or black pillism, does not mean, false.  https://www.mastersincommunications.org/current-state-free-speech-united-states/

Weird Sounds of the Apocalypse By Charles Taylor

     I frequently get waken by very weird sounds, and I am not the only one. I am based in Florida, but friends all over the States hear the same, sounds like booms, gun fire, shells exploding. Has the civil war begun already, but nobody bothered to send me a memo?  http://www.shtfplan.com/headline-news/apocalyptic-sounds-in-the-sky-no-explanation-for-mystery-booms-and-mysterious-flashes-of-light-all-across-america_02112019   https://www.thesun.co.uk/news/8378268/booming-sounds-shake-houses-america-experts-baffled/

“MYSTERY booming sounds have been shaking houses and terrifying residents after "flashes of light" were spotted across America. Experts have been left baffled by a spate of seismic booms from Arizona to New York that appear to have gathered pace over the past week. The string of phenomena was first reported last Thursday morning when locals in three separate Tennessee counties reported hearing loud booming noises. On the same day, North Carolinians contacted police reporting unexplained loud blasts and booms that kept them awake at night. Two homeowners said the booms were so powerful that they briefly lost power as a result of the tremors, Mysterious Universe reported. Mary Buck told The Sun Online: “There was a loud boom heard in Gum Spring, Virginia, on Wednesday February 7 around 7pm. “My neighbours and I heard it. We live close to interstate 64 so we just assumed something happened but there were no reported incidents. “It sounded like an explosion. Could be related to other ‘mysterious boom’ noises reported?” Similarly unexplained explosions have been reported happening in isolation over the past years, but rarely with this frequency. On Saturday, loud bangs were reported in Rhode Island, where Jeremy Braza's doorbell captured a video and audio of a loud noise over a three-minute period.”

Forward, to the Past! By James Reed

     A great piece by the only sensible person from the Left/environmentalism, James Howard Kunstler, on the irrelevance of the present Left’s retreat to socialism, because we are at the end of the age that produced any (false) need for socialism in the first place:  https://www.zerohedge.com/news/2019-02-11/we-have-new-kind-mass-squalor-america-kunstler-warns-socialists-have-no-answers

“And so the Democratic Party has gone and hoisted the flag of “socialism” on the mizzenmast of its foundering hulk as it sets sail for the edge of the world. Bad call by a ship without a captain, and I’ll tell you why. Socialism was the response to a particular set of circumstances in time that drove the rise of industrial societies. Those circumstances are going, going, gone. The suspicion of industry’s dreadful effects on the human condition first sparked in the public imagination with William Blake’s poem “Jerusalem” in 1804 and its reference to England’s newly-built “dark satanic mills.” Industry at the grand scale overturned everyday life in the Euro-American “West” by the mid-19th century, and introduced a new kind of squalor for the masses, arguably worse than their former status as peasants. And thus it was to be, through Karl Marx, Vlad Lenin, and the rest of the gang, ever-strategizing to somehow mitigate all that suffering.Their Big Idea was that if government owned the industry (the means of production), then the riches would be distributed equally among the laboring masses and the squalor eliminated. You can’t blame them for trying, though you can blame them for killing scores of millions of people who somehow got in the way of their plans.

Greenie Pests By Viv Forbes

The Greenie pests are having a dream run. First Greenie Climatists destroyed reliable coal-fired power stations, trying to replace them with intermittent wind-solar toys and a giant $90M battery. Then a Greenie PM donated $444M to a Greenie group to discourage industry near the Great Barrier Reef. Then drought helped Greenie water-wasters to kill rural industries from Townsville to Broken Hill. Then floods in the wild rivers of the north devastated much of what was left. Decades of Greenie opposition to new dams made both drought and flood disasters worse. Then Greenie mismanagement of parks, forests and grasslands helped fuel even more destructive bush fires. And recently a Judge used Greenie propaganda to kill a new coal mine in NSW, and a Greenie academic used a finchy story to add to the ten year delay to the Adani Coal Mine. Now the lights are going out and jobs are disappearing. The looming elections provide an opportunity to get rid of this plague of Greenie pests.

Letter to The Editor - We can love and honour the contribution made and still being made to the Australia of today by Aboriginal history and tradition

To The Age        Nova Peris challenges people unsympathetic to Aboriginal aspirations "to stand in an Aboriginal person's shoes" ("Lunch with Nova Peris", 16/2), which is fair enough, but I ask her to stand in turn in the shoes of those of us Australians who are devoted to our history of British civilization and loath to see it go. Born in Melbourne and not qualifying for UK citizenship, I have only one nation in which to live and call my own. I want it to retain everything of good that British settlement brought to it, including monarchical government and the free way of life that is a part of British culture. We can love and honour the contribution made and still being made to the Australia of today by Aboriginal history and tradition; but do not ask us to include in that the foolish dismantling of a constitution and political order that has kept our land unstained by tyranny.  Nigel Jackson, Belgrave, Vic

Letter to The Editor - Reversal of the 2016 result will be deceitfully presented as "democracy"

To The Australian        News from the UK ("Europe at a loss as vote shatters May's strategy", 16-17/2) continues to suggest that the decision of the 2016 referendum for leaving the UK is being subverted carefully and cleverly by powerful interests. Mrs May (a Remain advocate in 2016) is implicated. The strategy, organized from behind the scenes, appears to have been chosen to make the treachery as little obvious as possible. First, cause a long delay. Second, produce a "Brexit plan" which is really a Remain document. Third, if this is rejected, hand over control to the Remain majority in the present Parliament, which will block a "no deal exit" and introduce a second referendum. Alas, Nigel Farage's last minute creation of a "Brexit Party" to fight any new elections will probably fail to stem the avalanche of well-funded Remain propaganda. Reversal of the 2016 result will be deceitfully presented as "democracy" and the UK, its independent sovereignty finally lost, will fall under the same intellectual and moral tyranny that is a fundamental aspect of the EU.  Nigel Jackson, Belgrave, Vic

Where the Anti-Discrimination Cult Leads By Mrs Vera West

     This is my nomination of crazy article of the week, as it shows just how far the politically correct thought police, literally, have gone in Britain. While migrant grooming gangs have raped thousands of children, and the police held back from pursuing them, until they absolutely had to, due to political correctness, there is a full-scale attack upon traditional British people. This is anarcho-tyranny by definition:  https://www.dailymail.co.uk/news/article-6687123/Mother-arrested-children-calling-transgender-woman-man.html

“A mother was arrested in front of her children and locked up for seven hours after referring to a transgender woman as a man online. Three officers detained Kate Scottow at her home before quizzing her at a police station about an argument with an activist on Twitter over so-called 'deadnaming'. The 38-year-old, from Hitchin, Hertfordshire, had her photograph, DNA and fingerprints taken and remains under investigation. More than two months after her arrest on December 1, she has had neither her mobile phone or laptop returned, which she says is hampering her studies for a Masters in forensic psychology. Writing on online forum Mumsnet, Mrs Scottow – who has also been served with a court order that bans her from referring to her accuser as a man – claimed: 'I was arrested in my home by three officers, with my autistic ten-year-old daughter and breastfed 20-month-old son present. 'I was then detained for seven hours in a cell with no sanitary products (which I said I needed) before being interviewed then later released under investigation ... I was arrested for harassment and malicious communications because I called someone out and misgendered them on Twitter.' Confirming the arrest, Hertfordshire Police said: 'We take all reports of malicious communication seriously.' The case is the latest where police have been accused of being heavy-handed in dealing with people who go online to debate gender issues. Sitcom writer Graham Linehan was given a verbal harassment warning by West Yorkshire Police after transgender activist Stephanie Hayden reported him for referring to her by her previous names and pronouns on Twitter.”

Social Media, Paedophilic Grooming and Rape By Mrs Vera West

     Straight from The Times of London, if there still is a London, or an England, comes news that dating apps are being used by children as young as eight to, well, date, then get raped, which seems to be all that Britain does with its children now, as its major contribution to white genocide:  https://www.thetimes.co.uk/article/revealed-the-child-victims-of-dating-apps-p3wfv83ml    https://metro.co.uk/2019/02/10/children-risk-grooming-sexual-exploitation-tinder-grindr-8505910/

“The Digital Secretary has said he will be writing to Tinder and Grindr asking what measures they have in place to keep children safe, after an investigation claimed they are at risk of being exploited on the apps. Police have investigated more than 30 incidents of child rape since 2015, where victims were sexually exploited after evading age checks on dating apps, the Sunday Times reported. The newspaper said records obtained through Freedom of Information requests showed 60 further cases of child sex offences via online dating services, including grooming, kidnapping and violent sexual assault. The youngest victim was eight years old, the paper said. The findings were described as ‘truly shocking’ by Jeremy Wright, Secretary of State for Digital, Culture, Media and Sport. He added: ‘I will be writing to these companies asking what measures they have in place to keep children safe from harm, including verifying their age. ‘If I’m not satisfied with their response, I reserve the right to take further action.’”

Austrasia Needs More Polar Bears! By Brian Simpson

     Who loves Polar Bears? I do! It is great news that 52 polar bears have decided to raid the copious amounts of rubbish produced by a Russian town, rather than starving to death:  https://www.livescience.com/64741-polar-bears-are-taking-back-russia.html?utm_source=notification

“Fifty-two hungry polar bears have occupied Guba, a work settlement in a remote Russian Arctic archipelago. The animals reportedly attacked locals, ransacked garbage dumps and barged into residential buildings, according to a government statement translated from Russian and released this weekend. The massive invasion of polar bears prompted regional officials to declare a state of emergency on Saturday (Feb. 9). "People are scared, afraid to leave the house … afraid to let their children go to school," Zhigansha Musin, a local school administrator, said in the statement. "Constantly in the village are from six to 10 polar bears." Belushya Guba is a settlement of about 2,000 people in Russia's remote Novaya Zemlya archipelago, which is best known for its spooky plankton blooms and apocalyptic nuclear bomb tests. It's not uncommon to see polar bears near the area's southern coasts, where they regularly converge in winter for seasonal seal hunts, according to Russia's state-run news site TASS. However, thinning sea ice caused by global warming likely drove the bears inland in search of more readily available meals, researchers from Moscow's A.N. Severtsov Institute of Ecology and Evolution, a branch of the Russian Academy of Sciences, told TASS. The allure of edible waste in Belushya Guba's garbage bins and dump sites likely stopped the bears from migrating farther north, the researchers said.”

Standing Up to the Singing Class By Charles Taylor

     I do not follow popular music, as I regard it, like film, as contaminated and degenerate. Still, I noticed that some popular “artists” are coming out and wearing openly pro-Trump and pro-build-the-wall clothing, at the big gathering of these music critters. You can have a look at them in the link below if interested, but it is good for these eternally whinging, privileged stars, to have one of their own kind sling mud in their faces, faces, that usually only emit bs, increasing the carbon footprint, and global warming, of course.  https://www.breitbart.com/entertainment/2019/02/10/grammys-pop-star-arrives-in-maga-suit-singer-joy-villa-wears-build-the-wall-dress/ 

Green Socialism, A Global Death Cult By James Reed

     It seems that the normies, the good people out there who were once interested in nationalism, have been spooked by recent turns of events, and are now too scared to even switch on the internet, and look at once viewed sites, under the bed covers! This seems to be true for American sites, where we drag a lot of news from, because, frankly, reporting each day from just the local scene is impossible. However, the Left have no such dysfunction problems, and are charging ahead into new areas of peak degeneracy, except for France, which Richard is covering in another article. This all smacks of end times stuff, and the great Mike Adams has followed that line with a bit of hellfire and brimstone, very much old school:  https://www.naturalnews.com/2019-02-10-behold-a-pale-horse-how-the-green-environmental-movement-may-be-the-biblical-fourth-seal-end-times.html

“According to Biblical scholars, there are four “horsemen” that represent four of the Seals prophesied in the Book of Revelation, which describes the complete destruction of human civilization as God’s wrath is unleashed upon those who serve Satan. The fourth of these horsemen is known as “Death,” and it is usually described as a horseman riding a “pale horse.” But there’s a key translation problem that’s causing almost everyone to miss a bigger truth that needs to be pointed out. The passage from Revelation (6:7-8) is typically translated as this: (English Standard Version) And I looked, and behold, a pale horse! And its rider’s name was Death, and Hades followed him. And they were given authority over a fourth of the earth, to kill with sword and with famine and with pestilence and by wild beasts of the earth. However, I have learned this is a mis-translation. In the original Hebrew text, the color of the horse is not “pale” but rather chloros, the Greek word for “green,” sharing the same word root as “chlorophyll,” the molecule of photosynthesis for all green plants on our planet. Thus, the passage actually should read something more like, “And I looked, and behold, a green horse! And its rider’s name was Death.”

Letter to the Editor - Government policies should be predicated on the welfare of all of us

To The Age        Pat Turner argues ("Finally, a step in the right direction", 15/2) that the "Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people" should be treated as "equal partners" in the search to "close the gap"; but there are problems with this advocacy. It is not clear that such a "people" exists today in fact. Rather, there are a minority of Australians who happen to have some or full Aboriginal or Torres Strait Islander ancestry. As for the "gap", there is reason to fear, on scientific grounds concerning genetic inheritance, that the gap simply cannot be closed. This suggests that the campaign to close it has been conceived and is being operated in order to achieve significant change in the political order of the nation - a kind of confidence trick at the expense of other Australians. Government policies should be predicated on the welfare of all of us, with equitable sharing that is not derailed by insult terminology ("racism") or dubious psychological theorizing ("generational trauma").  Nigel Jackson, Belgrave, Vic

Letter to the Editor - Australia needs a profound reorientation of its modes of understanding

To The Australian        Doug Hurst, a sceptic evidently of the worth of both philosophy and metaphysics (15/2), does not believe that the black cat of ultimate truth really exists, so that both sets of intellectual activities are worthless. He may jest, but the flaw in his approach is that the black cat does exist and that there is overwhelming evidence of it in all the great cultures of the world, our own Western civilization being one. It is no laughing matter, however. The obvious decadence and corruption of Western societies has come about precisely because their leaderships have over-valued logical reasoning at the expense of our higher faculties of intuition, inspiration and what Saint Thomas Aquinas called "higher reason". Australia needs a profound reorientation of its modes of understanding and the Ramsay Centre should be encouraged to adopt a less old-fashioned and neo-Enlightenment syllabus.  Nigel Jackson, Belgrave, Vic

The French Revolution 2.0 By Richard Miller

     The French yellow vest protests appear to becoming more radical, not petering out as the media hoped, with hands being torn off, and houses of elites being fire bombed, and action, action, and more action:  https://www.dailymail.co.uk/news/article-6685729/Yellow-Vest-violence-erupts-streets-Paris-THIRTEENTH-weekend-row.html

“Violence broke out on the streets of Paris today as anti-riot police confronted a mass of French yellow vest protesters on the 13th consecutive weekend of demonstrations. Tear gas and baton charges were used around the Champs Elysee, after demonstrators threw stones at officers and vandals tried to smash shop windows. Shocking footage shows protesters gathering around a man whose hand appears to have been ripped off which spurts blood as he cries in pain. Other grisly scenes show demonstrators trying to topple boards, throwing planks of wood and cornering police as more tear gas is thrown. Many businesses were shut as the Yellow Vests - who are named after their high visibility jackets - mobilised across the country. …

The Next Big Thing; Transgender Wombs! By Mrs Vera West

     Put all of that life-saving surgery on the back burner, because there is the issue now of womb transplants:  https://www.dailymail.co.uk/news/article-6685681/Leading-British-surgeon-calls-transgender-women-life-changing-womb-transplants.html

“A top British surgeon has called for transgender women to get life-changing womb transplants so they can have children of their own. It comes after doctors in Brazil delivered the world's first baby from a womb transplant that was given to a woman from a deceased donor last year. Now surgeon Christopher Inglefield, founder of the London Transgender Clinic, believes transgender women deserve a uterus implant. He says the procedure is 'essentially identical' to the one performed on women. Dr Inglefield, who appeared in ITV's Transformation Street, told the Mirror: 'This pioneering birth is extremely important for any trans female who would like to carry her own child. 'Because once the medical community accept this as a treatment for cis-women with uterine infertility, such as congenital absence of a womb, then it would be illegal to deny a trans-female who has completed her transition.”

Lawyers and Islam By Paul Walker

     In our wonderfully diverse, exciting vibrant, vibrating society, I never would have guessed this:  https://www.smh.com.au/national/nsw/lawyers-back-muslim-community-after-controversial-comments-from-bench-20190207-p50wd7.html

“The peak body for the legal profession in Australia has called for better "communication and understanding of the Islamic faith" by lawyers and judges, days after a NSW Supreme Court judge courted controversy by urging Muslims to publicly disavow violence in the Koran. Justice Desmond Fagan, who has presided over a number of terrorism-related cases, said last week the "unqualified acceptance" of the Koran by Australian Muslims "without explicit repudiation of verses which ordain intolerance, violence and domination ... will embolden terrorists to think they are in common cause with all believers". On Thursday evening, high-profile members of the legal profession and the judiciary, including NSW Supreme Court and Federal Court judges, attended an Islamic Service to mark the opening of the 2019 Law Term at the Auburn Gallipoli Mosque in Sydney. The president of the Law Council of Australia, Arthur Moses, SC, said the Islamic Service was "a significant occasion for both the legal profession and the community" and it was "important that there is communication and understanding of the Islamic faith in Australia’s legal profession and the judicial process."

Sweden Sinks Ever-Deeper into the Mud By Richard Miller

     Sweden is my bet to be the first Western country to collapse. If California was a country, I would still bet on Sweden. It is as if they must pay the price of oblivion for their Nordic racial complexion, which must be eliminated from the human gene pool, but which is a social construct anyway, so what does it matter? Apart from the ethno-racial aspect, the collapse of Sweden will mean less profits for the capitalists, so there is some interest in not letting Sweden completely burn to the ground, until demographic replacement is complete. Sweden has been regarded by some academics as a bigger security threat to Europe than Russia:  https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=XwxRb5l_J3Y   https://www.breitbart.com/europe/2019/02/07/sweden-admits-it-cannot-control-its-own-borders/

“The chief of Sweden’s National Border Police has sounded the alarm on the ability of his force to do its job — even to the low standard required by the European Union under its Schengen zone open borders agreement.Former Europol top cop and Swedish police superintendent Patrik Engström [pictured above, left] made the warning when he said the Border Police that he commands did not have enough resources to adequately patrol the 102 border crossings and ports nationwide. A Swedish newspaper has claimed the nation is short of 500 border officers to do the job adequately, but Engström declined to discuss specific numbers, Sweden Radio reports. Engström said: “…the border police’s mission is not resourced to meet Schengen’s requirements for border control… It is a work that is carried out in all seven regions of the police. What is needed, without entering the exact number, is more staff to be able to carry out the external border control that the EU requires. It is about being able to conduct control at both large and small border crossing points.”   https://www.breitbart.com/europe/2018/09/18/total-failure-sweden-europes-worst-border-control-report-hushed-up-election/

Wi-Fi On the Brain By Mrs Vera West

     The mania of IT, phones, social media, the whole kettle of rotting fish, it just makes me cry tears of blood. Can the ordinary people rise to be more than just being mind-controlled puppets, insanely consuming at the suggestions of the media? Do they even use this media to try and find out if the very new gods that they now worship, are even safe? Apparently not.  https://www.naturalnews.com/2019-02-07-science-is-clear-wi-fi-increases-risk-of-brain-cancer.html

“Studies have shown Wi-Fi increases your risk of brain cancer and a host of other serious illnesses. The International Agency for Research on Cancer has classified radiofrequency electromagnetic fields (RF/EMF) as a possible carcinogen, meaning it ranks right up there with lead, chloroform and DDT. The highly respected group, which is part of the World Health Organization, made its classifications after careful assessment of extensive scientific evidence. While all this exposure to cell phones, smart meters, smart devices, and other Wi-Fi technologies is undoubtedly bad for us, it’s even worse for children. An analysis of studies that was printed in the Journal of Microscopy and Ultrastructure found that children, teens and infants have a higher cancer risk than adults from such devices, with some estimates placing children’s likelihood of developing brain cancer from exposure to RF/EMF at four times that of adults. Unfortunately, children simply don’t have as much protection from this exposure as adults do as their bodies are smaller and their skulls are thinner. In addition, their brain tissue is more absorbent. Not surprisingly, unborn children are the most vulnerable, so pregnant women need to use extreme caution when it comes to their exposure.”

Asymmetrical Multiculturalism and Populism By Paul Walker

     The article “How ‘Asymmetrical Multiculturalism’ Generates Populist Blowback,” by Eric Kaufmann, author of Whiteshift: Immigration, Populism and the Future of White Majorities (2019), at the National Review, is insightful in a conservative kind of way. The basic argument is that multiculturalism, that we know and hate, causes populism as a reaction.   https://www.nationalreview.com/2019/02/populism-identity-politics-why-they-rise-in-tandem/

“Right-wing populism and left-wing identity politics have risen in tandem since 2013. Why? The connecting thread is the contradictions of multiculturalism, which encourage a “common enemy” form of minority identity while repressing even moderate expressions of majority identity. The former produces antagonistic identity politics on the left, while both contribute to populist blowback on the right. In the high culture, the advent of social media helped the cultural Left experience its Third Great Awakening, matching the waves of enthusiasm of the late ’60s and late ’80s. Meanwhile, multiculturalism’s half-century sway has presided over profound ethnic shifts, producing mounting conservative discontent. By narrowing the space for debating immigration, progressive taboos prevented mainstream liberals and conservatives from reaching a settlement on the issue. We are now reaping the results.
