Letter to The Editor - do not constitute a convincing answer

to THE AGE     Anna Krien is illogical in her claim that in their ‘no’ campaign the churches ‘should shut right up about the protection of children’ (‘Churches’ marriage-vote hypocrisy’, 18/10). The fact that a minority of church people have been guilty of child abuse does not mean that other church people have no ‘moral high ground’ from which to comment on the ways in which marriage, as currently defined, protects children. Nor can either group be equated with ‘the churches’.

     Krien’s blanket assertions that the Safe Schools programme is ‘far from radical’ and is not linked to ‘marriage equality’ do not constitute a convincing answer to the detailed arguments and evidence that the ‘no’ advocates have placed on the public record.     NJ, Belgrave, Vic

The Question of Europe and Europa By Chris Knight

     John Bruce Leonard has contributed two essays on the Europe question:https://www.counter-currents.com/2017/10/redressing-the-european-question/https://www.counter-currents.com/2017/10/europe-and-europa/

     Using the Catalan independence from Spain and the similar case of Sardinia as examples, the question arises as to what is a nation: is it blood and ties of ethnicity, or is it abstract principles? I suppose for many readers it will be abstract principles, such as “democracy” and liberty.

Transgender, Return to Sender By Mrs Vera West

     With all of the debate about same sex marriage and the issue of transgenders, it is relevant to note that there appears to be a rise in the requests for transgender reversal surgery:http://www.dailymail.co.uk/health/article-4942482/The-rise-transgender-reversals.html

“There has been a surge in patients wanting to reverse their transgender surgery, according to a leading doctor in Serbia, the global hub of transgender corrective surgery.Dr Miroslav Djordjevic, a urologist in Belgrade, has been treating patients from all over the world for about 10 years.His clinic in the capital of a country that is openly hostile to LGBT groups, became an unlikely haven for transgender patiets.  But now, Dr Djordjevic has told The Telegraph that he is seeing an increase in the number of patients seeking reversal surgery.

Are Pollies Druggies or Just Mad? By Mrs Vera West

     We have often wondered whether “our” pollies are just mad, evil, and/ or on “something.” We do not have any data for Australia, but there is some American material that may shed some light on the matter:https://www.naturalnews.com/2017-10-15-pharmacist-who-shuttles-carloads-of-pharma-drugs-to-congress-admits-theyre-senile-brain-damaged-patients-who-might-not-even-remember-what-happened-yesterday.htmlhttps://www.statnews.com/2017/10/11/pharmacist-congress-drug-delivery/

“Mike Kim, the reserved pharmacist-turned-owner of the pharmacy, said he has gotten used to knowing the most sensitive details about some of the most famous people in Washington.“At first it’s cool, and then you realize, I’m filling some drugs that are for some pretty serious health problems as well. And these are the people that are running the country,” Kim said, listing treatments for conditions like diabetes and Alzheimer’s.“It makes you kind of sit back and say, ‘Wow, they’re making the highest laws of the land and they might not even remember what happened yesterday.’”

White Nationalism to the Rescue By Chris Knight

     The New York Times is getting heartburn about White nationalism and the Alt Right – that is, people like us:https://www.nytimes.com/2017/10/12/opinion/sunday/white-nationalism-threat-islam-america.html

     Face it, if you are White and make a squeak about race, immigration, and especially banking and the rule by the global financial elites, then you are a bad guy, according to the cosmopolitanists and globalists:

Letter to The Editor - more to fear of an Australian republic going communist than of our present Christian monarchy going fascist

to THE AGE     Both the current Spanish crisis (‘Civil war wounds reopened as sides fire up over Catalonia’, 16/10) and ongoing controversy over the events in Australia in 1975 (‘Did Britain have a role in Dismissal?’) are similar in that, behind argumentation about constitutional matters, two different and mutually hostile visions of the political order are embattled.     Historian Jenny Hocking appears to be conducting her research in order to fire up anti-British and pro-republic sentiment. Both in 1936 and today Catalonian separatism has been used to try to move Spain away from Christian monarchy towards secular and atheistic republicanism. This is accompanied by misrepresentation (‘Franco’s Falange’):  Franco was a Catholic patriot, not a fascist, and successfully kept both the Falange and Hitler at arm’s length after the 1939 Nationalist victory. He bequeathed to Spain the present unifying monarchy.     History shows that we have much more to fear of an Australian republic going communist than of our present Christian monarchy going fascist.     NJ, Belgrave, Vic

Living Lives of Our own By James Reed

     Lives of Our Own (Createspace, 2017), is a brilliant new book by leading social credit theorist and philosopher, M. Oliver Heydorn. The subtitle of the book aptly sums up what this treatise is about: Social Credit, Catholicism, and a Distributist Social Order.

     The tone of the book is set with an epigraph from Hilaire Belloc, published in 1934, expressing his support for the rationality and morality of the social credit agenda, of overcoming restricted purchasing power, freeing people from wage-slavery, and ensuring that people are “to be fully fed, well housed, well clothed and given manifold opportunity for the enjoyment of life.” This is no longer a truism, because our world of 2017 is quickly approaching that of the Great Depression era, with record numbers of homeless and unemployed.

Top Fears of the Millennials By Mrs Vera West

     While I attack the baby boomer generation a lot for letting the world down, the millennials look like surpassing even them in the decline and fall stakes:http://collapse.news/2017-10-13-top-2o-fear-millennials-decline-self-reliance-practical-intelligence.html

     Here are there top fears:1.    “Having to wait in the house all day for a delivery because the delivery man did not specifically say what time he would arrive.2.    Forgetting log-in passwords.3.    Leaving your phone at home.4.    No free WiFi at the hotel.5.    The buffering sign when you are streaming something online.6.    Standing in public transport.7.    Running for the bus/train only to have the doors close on your face.8.    Forgetting your umbrella and then finding out it’s raining.9.    Having to get out of bed to turn off the lights.10.    Finding an empty bottle in the fridge that was put there by a lazy roommate.11.    Being unable to find the TV remote just as your favorite show is starting.12.    Being “seen-zoned”: when a friend sees your message but doesn’t bother to reply.13.    Having to put on pants just to open the door.14.    When an avocado isn’t ripe enough.15.    Not having enough hangers that you reach the point where you pile your clothes on one hanger.16.    Running out of toilet paper.17.    When restaurant crew people don’t bring condiments with your food and you have to ask them for some.18.    Your laptop is low on battery but your charger is in another room.19.    Realizing the milk has run out after boiling the kettle.20.    Sat Nav re-routing.”

The Hollywood Cesspool By Chuck Taylor

     It has been a busy week here in LA, with the Harvey Weinstein revelations of sexual abuse. This Hollywood big knob was exposed as having sexually assaulted, and allegedly raped at least three women over many years, with even his brother expressing shock! horror! at the depths of “depravity”:http://www.hollywoodreporter.com/news/bob-weinstein-gets-emotional-depraved-harvey-saving-company-his-waking-nightmare-1048905 https://www.thetimes.co.uk/article/harvey-weinstein-it-was-like-a-hunter-with-a-wild-animal-the-fear-turned-him-on-asia-argento-gwyneth-paltrow-angelina-jolie-george-clooney-lucia-evans-emma-de-caunes-ronan-farrow-tklf3lm0k

President Ivanka Trump By Chris Knight

     Donald Trump’s most insane decision was to bring his family, especially his daughter Ivanka, and son-in-law, Jared Kushner, into essentially running the Trump presidency. She has constantly led her father into taking the libtard road, or to make decisions not in America’s best interests; she is a globalist and cosmopolitan.

     Thus, she has been in support of keeping illegals on via the DACA (Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals) scheme:http://www.breitbart.com/radio/2017/10/11/angel-mom-ivanka-which-child-choose-lose-hands-illegal-support-agenda/

Insanity Round Up By Peter Ewer

    Here is a round up for this week of some more items on the road to decay and disintegration.    Dr Andrew Joyce writes for the Occidental observer.net, and other Alt Right publications. As far as I am aware, he has no criminal record, but he has been denied entry to America! So, in the past have other Alt Right folk, although radical jihadist preachers, and Left lunatics can come and go as they please:http://www.theoccidentalobserver.net/2017/10/11/banned-in-americaa-sequel/

LETTER TO THE EDITOR - The enemies are crude ideology and the nanny state

to THE AUSTRALIAN     Paul Morrisey’s subtly articulated advocacy of a return to ‘a more liberal approach to education’ (‘We need an education in wisdom, not specious buzzwords’, 13/10) is welcome for its insistence on the importance of vision and respect for the primacy of wisdom in the promotion of a truly generous, diverse and free national education. He is right to warn against the over-influence of ‘the bureaucratic state’ and to favour an approach of ‘overseeing and enabling’ rather than ‘controlling and enforcing’, especially as regards the secondary and tertiary sectors.

     The pursuit of wisdom requires more than refinement of reasoning. Supra-rational modes of achieving understanding need to be adopted: intuition, conscience, inspiration, contemplation, even ‘second sight’. As Josef Pieper noted in his 1952 book ‘Leisure the Basis of Culture’, both teachers and students need to develop a philosophical attitude ‘which presupposes silence, a contemplative attention to things’ and adequate leisure time. The enemies are crude ideology and the nanny state.     NJ, Belgrave, Vic

The Official Las Vegas Narrative Falls Apart By John Steele

     The sequence of events that the FBI and other authorities have given for the Las Vegas shooting has now, officially, fallen apart:  http://www.npr.org/sections/thetwo-way/2017/10/10/556828806/las-vegas-gunman-shot-security-guard-before-firing-into-crowd-police-say

“At a news conference Monday, Clark County Sheriff Joe Lombardo revised one of the key details on the reported timeline of events that night: when exactly shooter Stephen Paddock injured Jesus Campos, the unarmed Mandalay Bay security guard who came to investigate his floor.“What we have learned is Mr. Campos was encountered by the suspect prior to [Paddock’s] shooting to the outside world,” Lombardo said. He told reporters Monday that Paddock shot Campos at 9:59 p.m. local time on Oct. 1, roughly six minutes before turning his gun on the crowd at the Route 91 Harvest music festival.“Immediately upon being injured, [Campos] notified security of his situation,” Lombardo said. He added that Campos also prevented a maintenance worker from being shot. But Lombardo also acknowledged that police “weren’t aware of [Campos] being shot until they met him in the hallway after exiting the elevator” onto Paddock’s floor.”

Tales from Swedish Dentists By Paul Walker

     Remember the rhetoric from Obama et al. about all those poor refugees fleeing to Europe with their latest phones and money, were actually children, not young men of military-service age who could fight for their homeland?  Well, a Swedish dentist, Bernt Herlitz revealed that from his observations of molar teeth of migrant patients, 80 percent of the so-called migrant “children” were actually adults. This revelation led to Helitz being fired and he may lose his house.  http://www.thegatewaypundit.com/2017/10/swedish-dentist-reveals-80-migrant-children-actually-adults-fired-now-may-lose-home/

     This act of war against a native Swede occurred even though it is now openly admitted that the so-called migrant children are adults:  http://www.express.co.uk/news/world/681228/child-migrants-age-test-sweden-department-migration-refugeeTheir purpose is population replacement of Nordics.

Letter to The Editor - it is possible to free ourselves from error by using reasoning to approach truth

to THE AGE     It is good that Jill Murphy, a ‘yes’ voter in the postal survey on marriage, can accept, if grudgingly, that a ‘no’ vote ‘is not solely a product of homophobia’ (12/10). However, she neither tells us her ‘no’ friend’s arguments nor tries to rebut them. Instead, she trots out all the old chestnuts about how outrageous the survey is, that it enshrines ‘prejudices’, that it causes unnecessary suffering to gay people, that gays wanting to marry concerns no-one else and that ‘no’ voters are often motivated by fear.     More alarmingly, she seems clearly to believe that the community’s decisions on who is to have what rights must accord with her own simplistic views about ‘equality’ and ‘love’.  She also ignores entirely the major arguments of ‘no’ advocates. So, yes, ‘our identities are bound up with our beliefs’, but it is possible to free ourselves from error by using reasoning to approach truth.     NJ, Belgrave, Vic

Letter to The Editor - the essence of each struggle is an attack on the traditional Christian religion and culture of the West

to THE AUSTRALIAN     An important aspect of the Spanish constitutional crisis is its relevance to our own ongoing constitutional contest between those for and against our monarchy, since an independent Catalonia would cease its royalist allegiance to become a republic. This is in accord with a regional tradition that goes back to the October 1936 declaration that Barcelona was to become the capital of the new ‘Soviet States of Western Europe’. That was less than twenty years after the communist murder of the Romanovs.     In both nations the issue of regional and cultural autonomy is used, by a sort of confidence trick, as a means of effecting fundamental change in the political order; and the essence of each struggle is an attack on the traditional Christian religion and culture of the West.     NJ, Belgrave, Vic

If X Causes Harm then Ban X! By Mrs Vera West

     Following the Las Vegas false flag massacre, the MSM have been rolling out thick the gun banning rhetoric. Prior to this, the gun amnesty was hailed as a success because each of these intrinsic dangerous guns was turned in.

     Guns, apparently kill people and thus are intrinsically bad, unless they are the guns held by the Deep State, to keep 'You in Line'. Then they are good.

Fat White Guys By John Steele
