The Love of Dogs By Mrs Vera West

     Why are dogs special? It is because of love, and one has to have had a dog to know of the unconditional love a dog has for its master/mistress. You are part of its pack, and dogs are a pack animal. It is well known that dogs will frequently fight to the death defending their human family:

“The idea that animals can experience love was once anathema to the psychologists who studied them, seen as a case of putting sentimentality before scientific rigor. But a new book argues that, when it comes to dogs, the word is necessary to understanding what has made the relationship between humans and our best friends one of the most significant interspecies partnerships in history. Clive Wynne, founder the Canine Science Collaboratory at Arizona State University, makes the case in "Dog is Love: Why and How Your Dog Loves You." The animal psychologist, 59, began studying dogs in the early 2000s, and, like his peers, believed that to ascribe complex emotions to them was to commit the sin of anthropomorphism—until he was swayed by a body evidence that was growing too big to ignore. "I think there comes a point when it's worth being skeptical of your skepticism," the Englishman said in an interview with AFP. Canine science has enjoyed a resurgence in the past two decades, much of it extolling dogs' smarts. Titles like "The Genius of Dogs" by Brian Hare have advanced the idea that dogs have an innate and exceptional intelligence. Wynne, however plays spoilsport, arguing that Fido is just not that brilliant. … One of the most striking advances comes from studies regarding oxytocin, a brain chemical that cements emotional bonds between people, but which is, according to new evidence, also responsible for interspecies relationships between dogs and humans. Recent research led by Takefumi Kikusui at Japan's Azabu University has shown that levels of the chemical spike when humans and their dogs gaze into each others' eyes, mirroring an effect observed between mothers and babies. In genetics, UCLA geneticist Bridgett vonHoldt made a surprising discovery in 2009: Dogs have a mutation in the gene responsible for Williams syndrome in humans—a condition characterized by intellectual limitations and exceptional gregariousness. "The essential thing about dogs, as for people with Williams syndrome, is a desire to form close connections, to have warm personal relationships—to love and be loved," writes Wynne.

Will Islam Conquer the World? Intelligence and IQ Makes No Difference By Brian Simpson

     A new book by the highly productive Edward Dutton, Why Islam Makes You Stupid ... but Also Means You’ll Conquer the World (2020), is actually a solid, implicit critique of IQ fetishism of sites like American Renaissance which has, in my opinion, an excessive, obsessive conception of the relevance of IQ, based upon contestable studies, as all of psychology is. Dutton takes a longer evolutionary view, which sees ethnocentrism and reproductive success as ultimately deciding the destiny of the world. A sister publication,, has a review, as we are all to poor to buy books here, we quote the essence:

“Though rigorous adherence to Islam suppresses intelligence, the advantages conferred by ethnocentrism and fertility are so great that, in the everlasting conflict between the Islam and formerly-Christian Europe, the former will triumph despite the intellectual and technological advantages of the latter. Dutton, in his usual resolute and confident style, packs his exploration of Islam with information and original insights to reveal how the religion affects the IQ not only of Muslims but also the Europeans whose lands Mohammed’s disciples are colonizing. Chapter 1 introduces modern research on intelligence in the context of human biodiversity and group selection: You pass on your genes by having children, by investing in your kind, or by investing in your group. Chapter 6 closes the book with Dutton’s reflections of Western man’s future in light of the general deterioration of Western civilizational strength, the declining average intelligence of Europeans, and the accelerating immigration into the European heartlands of aliens in general and Muslims in particular. But Dutton, originally educated as a theologian, is at his strongest in the middle when dealing with Islam’s stultifying effects on IQ—which will not, he predicts, thwart its triumph over the West. … In Chapter 2, Dutton summarizes the interplay between intelligence and religiosity. Overall, there exists a weak negative correlation between IQ and religiosity, and the harsher and more fundamentalist the creed, the lower the average IQ of its adepts. That might seem trivial, as professors of science or engineers are rarely ardent believers, but two existential threats arise from the association of IQ and religiousness and their effect on fertility. A positive correlation between religiousness and fertility is dysgenic in terms of IQ; i.e.,

Coronavirus Visits Italy: Pizza? By Brian Simpson

     The coronavirus is marching through South Korea now, showing how ineffective communist China’s control mechanisms were. The bigger surprise is that Italy now faces the infection, with a quarantine of 12 towns, so the bug has reached Europe. Italy now has 132 cases of the virus infection, and rising.

     Medical supplies are fast disappearing, the Chinese getting ahead of the curve. Our just in time delivery system, is highly vulnerable, operating on the edge of collapse, much like the wider social  system. This video may produce the appropriate sense of angst:

Big Business and Mass Immigration By Michael Ferguson

     Here is a good article, not every unquoted word of which I necessarily endorse, detailing why big business loves mass immigration; it is all about the money, bunny, and has been since this place was set up.

“Population growth fuelled by mass immigration and the servicing of it with cheaply-built houses, apartments, and supermarkets has essentially become Australia’s economic strategy. Former Australian Foreign Minister, Bob Carr, pointed out that “Australia digs up and sells raw materials. In the cities the economy is based on building apartment blocks and shopping malls. The idea of Australia as a clever country is a myth, it’s an illusion.” Unsurprisingly, surveys have found a steep fall in public support for immigration over the last decade. A 2018 survey found that more than 69 per cent of respondents felt the country didn’t need more people. Community concerns about the deleterious effects of mass immigration are not, however, represented by Australia’s political class. At the 2019 federal election, despite some clear differences between the two major political parties in a range of policy areas, they effectively ran a joint ticket on immigration. Economics journalist Judith Sloan notes that immigration is “a no go subject for many in the political class,” who are “in heated agreement in their support for high migrant intakes, both permanent and temporary, and the associated high population growth.”

Pests need Predators By Viv Forbes

25 February 2020,        Australian camels are well-adapted to thrive in the dry heart of Australia but landowners have been unable to harvest them profitably for meat, leather, racing or genetics. With no real predators, camel numbers ballooned. They did reduce wildfire risk in parks by consuming excess vegetation, but during drought, starving, thirsty camels become pests, invading neighbouring pastures and water supplies and destroying fences. So the federal government pays helicopter sharp-shooters to shoot hundreds of them, leaving carcasses to rot. A similar fate awaits Kosciusko Park brumbies. At the same time, nearer to the coast, hungry kangaroos trash irrigated pastures and help themselves to dwindling water supplies, but landowners are forbidden to cull them and red tape and quotas hamper those licenced to harvest them for natural chemical-free meat. Graziers are forced to destock in droughts – kangaroos should also be destocked. Then there are the hungry rabbits and wallabies often in pestiferous numbers. They love improved pastures. Rabbits get poisoned, shot, trapped and deliberately infected with viruses. But wallabies are widely protected. Dingoes and wild dogs are a lethal threat to outback sheep, calves and goats and also endanger children on Frazer Island, Uluru and in other “protected” places. Some dogs are protected, some not. Sharks and crocodiles are increasingly numerous, bold and dangerous in coastal waters and estuaries. They have few predators, but hunting them is not allowed. Feral cats, dogs, pigs, foxes and deer infest National Parks and harass park neighbours, but hunters are locked out and no government sharp-shooters are sent.

     In other places, towns and orchards are besieged by invasions of smelly, noisy, messy, disease-carrying flying foxes but it is these bats, not the people, who are protected. For example see how just one Australian town is besieged by untouchable fruit bats:

Do it Yourself Species Repopulation By Brian Simpson

     There is a lot of angst about so-called species loss and the sixth extinction. But, really, short of over-turning the crazy system not much can be done. Or can there? One man started at the grass roots, literally and saved a species in his own backyard:

“The so-called pipevine swallowtail of California has iridescent blue-colored wings, and collectors consider them among the most important and magnificent ones found in the area of North America. This beautiful butterfly thrives in San Francisco for centuries, and also around the so-called Bay Area. However, as this particular region was increasingly urbanized during the early 1900s, this butterfly species started disappearing. Nowadays, people living there can extremely rarely spot it. Tim Wong, who is an aquatic biologist at the Academy of Sciences in California, made the bringing of this butterfly his personal goal and mission, and he is on the way of something very promising. During 2012, he started searching for the California pipevine, its sole source of food, which disappeared together with this beautiful butterfly around the city area. He said: Finally, I was able to find this plant in the San Francisco Botanical Garden. And they allowed me to take a few clippings of the plant. He also propagated this plant in the backyard of his house, watering, tending, and weeding it until he created a paradise for the pipevine swallowtail. He explained that he built quite a big screen enclosure in order to protect this insect and to permit it to mate when the outside environmental conditions are perfect – natural airflow, sun, and temperature fluctuations. He also mentioned that this specialized enclosure even protects them from predators, increasing the opportunities for mating, and serves just like an environment for studying and observing these insects in order to comprehend better the criteria that the females look for in the ideal host plants.

The Bloomberg Apocalypse By Charles Taylor

     Billionaire Michael Bloomberg is racing up the charts of popularity, using his billions to buy the presidency. Some notable things are that there was mention of Hillary Clinton as a running mate, which sunk as fast as it was raised, but, who knows. Given that this would put gun banning on the front agenda, maybe the old girl is just lying, which would not surprise me.

     There is speculation that Bloomberg could beat Trump, which if true will test the thesis of accelerationism, since Bloomberg will definitely implement gun banning, open borders immigration, and the entire house of horrors, but so will all of the others, so nothing will prevent civil war 2.0, at least in principle.

Elite Capture of Foreign Aid By James Reed

     This is interesting, from Michael Smith News, quoting a Work Bank report that found that 7.5 percent of aid goes into foreign bank accounts:

Elite Capture of Foreign Aid Evidence from Offshore Bank Accounts Jørgen Juel Andersen Niels Johannesen Bob Rijkers  Policy Research Working Paper 9150
“Do elites capture foreign aid? This paper documents that aid disbursements to highly aid-dependent countries coincide with sharp increases in bank deposits in offshore financial centers known for bank secrecy and private wealth management, but not in other financial centers. The estimates are not confounded by contemporaneous shocks such as civil conflicts, natural disasters, and financial crises, and are robust to instrumenting with predetermined aid commitments. The implied leakage rate is around 7.5 percent at the sample mean and tends to increase with the ratio of aid to GDP. The findings are consistent with aid capture in the most aid-dependent countries. … We document that aid disbursements to the most aid-dependent countries coincide with significant increases in deposits held in offshore financial centers known for bank secrecy and private wealth management. Aid capture by ruling politicians, bureaucrats and their cronies is consistent with the totality of observed patterns: it can explain why aid does not trigger flows to non-havens, why the capital outflows occur precisely in the same quarter as the aid inflows and why the estimated effects are larger for more corrupt countries. Other explanations are possible but we find them harder to reconcile with all the patterns in the data. We cannot exclude that firms benefiting from aid-sponsored spending receive payments in quarters with aid disbursements and deposit the funds with foreign banks; however, this mechanism cannot explain why the money only flows to havens. It seems even less likely that the results reflect profit shifting by multinational firms, the effect of aid on income through aggregate demand and portfolio adjustments by commercial and central banks. Our estimates suggest a leakage rate of around 7.5% for the average highly aid-dependent country.”

Europe Losing its Culture because of Immigration: Trump! By Chris Knight

     President Trump has done nothing to fulfil his election promises, and as far as immigration goes, has done exactly the opposite, inflaming the pro-immigration forces to turn up the heat. But, at least we know where we stand. But, he has been useful as a speaker, saying things that others cannot say in this world of unending censorship, especially about Europe. While we have heard much about knife attacks in London, France too, has a knife attack problem, with an average of 120 attacks a day:

“As violent crime continues to surge across France, it is estimated that as many as 120 knife attacks occur on average per day across the country. The figures, which come from the National Observatory of Delinquency and Criminal Responses (ONDRP), claim that between 2015 and 2017 there were around 44,000 victims of knife crime each year, or an average of 120 per day. On average, 118,000 people in France say they were victims of some sort of violent crime involving an attacker who they were not living with such as assaults in public areas, schools, nightclubs, and other venues, Le Figaro reports. Knives are the most common weapons reported in violent crime cases, followed by 34 per cent who say they were attacked with a blunt object or rock, and around nine per cent who were attacked with a firearm. In cases of fatal violence, the trend remains largely the same, with edged weapons seen in 34 per cent of cases, followed by firearms at 28 per cent. … According to a senior Paris police official, stabbings were a common occurrence at makeshift migrant camps in the north of the city. “There were many fights in the migrant camps, between Afghans, Eritreans and Somalis in particular, which ended with stabbings, in the north of Paris. The dismantling of these fixing points has been beneficial,” the official said. The makeshift migrant camps had become so dangerous in recent years that the aid group Solidarité Migrants Wilson shut down their operations due to the threat posed to their workers in 2018.”

Universities, Police and Freedom By James Reed

     This is a little story from America, the land of the free - HA! – which illustrates the lack of freedom of speech on campuses. Thus, a pretty right-wing girl, who champions gun rights, gets attacked by crazed left-wingers, while she is trying to give a talk. Examine this closely, because the same could happen here in Australia, only we don’t have gun rights, freedom of speech, or anything else much, in a moth-eaten country:

“Kent State “gun girl” Kaitlin Bennett was confronted by a mob of protesters during her visit to Ohio University on Monday. According to the university, “She drew a large crowd of people, many with opposing viewpoints, who also chose to exercise their first amendment rights.” According to a report by USA Today, conservative activist Kaitlin Bennett was mobbed by a group of students during a visit this week to Ohio Univerity. Bennett is perhaps best known for posing with a gun for graduation photos in 2018. Since then, Bennett has traveled to campuses around the country to discuss hot-button issues with progressive college students. Bennett posted a video of her encounter with the Ohio University mob to her Twitter account on Monday. In the video, hundreds of students circle around Bennett as she tries to make her way through campus in a car driven by a black student. At one point, the video shows a member of the mob splashing the vehicle’s occupants with liquid. At one point during her visit, Bennett announced that she would encourage President Trump to strip federal funding from universities that don’t protect students from outrage mobs. “This is what happens when a Trump supporter goes to a college campus,” Bennett said during the video. “I think @realDonaldTrump should strip funding from universities like this that harbor terrorists.”

No Petrol Cars Please, We are Irish! By James Reed

     This is an incredible story from Ireland that readers may not know about, that Ireland, of all places, is set to ban the sale of petrol ands diesel cars by 2030:

“The Government is drafting new laws that would ban new petrol and diesel car registrations by 2030, as part of a strategy to protect the environment. The aim is to ensure that one third of vehicles on the roads are electric in ten years' time. The Sunday Independent reported that Minister for Communications, Climate Action and Environment Richard Bruton is planning to publish the law early in the new year. The new measures will be included in the Climate Action Amendment Bill 2019. It is understood that the bill will be developed further in conjunction with other departments. The Government's Climate Action Plan aims to reduce emissions and be carbon neutral by 2050. Transport emissions accounted for over 20% of Ireland's emissions in 2018. The Government is planning to have 936,000 electric vehicles on the roads by 2030, including battery operated and hybrid vehicles. It has promised to double the amount of home chargers installed and further roll-out the nationwide network of on street charging points.”

Why This May be the Biblical Armageddon By James Reed

     For a wide-eyed fanatic such as myself, I look daily for the signs of end times, as told in the last book of the Bible. I am not an expert about this, or anything else, but like you, have my opinion, which I hold regardless of evidence. For example, I believe in climate change, but not global warming, but global cooling, namely a new ice age. I am also concerned about the various plagues threatening the earth, including locusts, which is something out of the Bible, I think. Just read the following and tell me there is not a theological meaning behind all of this:

“#1 Armies Of Locusts – As I detailed the other day, swarms of locusts the size of major cities have been devouring entire farms in Africa in as little as 30 seconds.  These swarms have also been spreading throughout the Middle East, and now we have learned that they have even reached China… A gigantic swarm of locusts that belong to a plague that has ravaged millions of acres of crops across east Africa has been spotted reaching the Chinese border. Billions of the insects have destroyed food supplies across Kenya, Somalia and Ethiopia in what has been described as the worst plague for decades. #2 Extremely Bizarre Weather Patterns – It is almost as if virtually all of the old rules have suddenly been thrown out the window.  An all-time record 209 mph wind gust just hit Calfiornia, and absolutely crazy storms are happening all over the planet.  For example, just check out what just took place in Australia… Sydney has been thrown into chaos by a devastating storm that saw two months of rainfall in just two days – forcing mass evacuations, leaving 150,000 homes without power, and prompted warnings not to drive to work. The storm dumped 400mm of rain on the city over the weekend, causing mayhem for commuters on Monday morning with roads blocked, ferries cancelled and trains suffering major delays across the network. #3 Unprecedented Flooding – We are seeing unusual flooding all over the world right now, and the flooding that is devastating the southern U.S. at this moment is being called “unprecedented”… In Jackson, Mississippi, hundreds of residents either watched their homes flood over the weekend or worried their residence would soon be drenched as the Pearl River crested Monday at 36.8 feet, its third-highest level ever recorded – behind only 1979 and 1983.

Torturing Julian Assange to Death By Peter West

     If the system finds you a problem, if you are not shot in the back of the head outright, or have an accident that looks like suicide, then you will be a prisoner of the system and tortured slowly to death, like poor Julian Assange. The aim is to send a message to other potential whistle-blowers, to not blow their whistle.

“Over 100 doctors are urging the UK government to stop the "psychological torture" of Julian Assange, and send him to a hospital. It's their fourth such letter since the journalist appeared in court. WikiLeaks founder Julian Assange may die in a UK prison, having "effectively been tortured to death," claim Doctors for Assange, a group of 117 doctors from 18 countries, in a recent letter published in The Lancet, a leading medical journal. The letter says that Assange requires urgent medical care, and has been exposed to “prolonged psychological torture”. The group once again asks for him to be moved to a university teaching hospital for medical assessment and treatment. WikiLeaks editor-in-chief Kristinn Hrafnsson on the other hand has claimed that Assange’s health is improving and he is no longer being held in solitary confinement. Hrafnsson spoke to journalists ahead of next week’s court hearing on the US extradition request. Assange’s health has been worrying his supporters for a while now. Nils Melzer, the UN Special Rapporteur on Torture, visited Assange in prison in May 2019, and reported that the journalist showed “all the symptoms typical of prolonged exposure to psychological torture”.

The World We Lost By James Reed

     When you read the list below, it brings home just how much we have lost. How much longer will we tolerate what governments of both persuasions have delivered? They certainly are not reflecting our wishes.
In more robust times, the voters would be assembled at their MP’s office demanding he/she vote for certain things OR face being turfed out at the next poll.  Now we just meekly argue that we better maintain our voting pattern because we don’t want those other b’s getting elected.  Realistically we can see it matters little which party is in power!  Neither are looking after us!  They all parrot the tune orchestrated by globalists around the world. This message below makes it clear that we will certainly have more of the same UNLESS we do something about it.  We owe it to our kids and their kids.  How will we answer them one day when they ask Grandpa, “What did you do to change the disastrous course?” Start tomorrow  -  no that is too late.  Start today and contact your Federal MP (and Senators) irrespective of their party alliance.  Show him/her the message below and politely tell him/her that they will definitely not be getting your vote next election until he/she reverses the present disastrous policies destroying our sovereignty. Gary Matthews who has written the message is unknown to me but he has done us a big favour.  Reward him by taking action.


Ten years ago Australia had five car manufacturers, Ford, GMH, Toyota, Nissan and Mitsubishi.

Now we have none. All gone  overseas and the reason given? Costs were to high. Funny in that the cars we are  now importing (Malaysia etc) are no cheaper.

I remember back in  1968 living in Brisbane, when the 3 major cities back then were Sydney,  Melbourne & Adelaide and Adelaide was the  Industrial City.

Adelaide - South  Australia, was where you went to work in the Iron Ore Industry, or where you  could get a job making railway tracks for B.H.P.?

You could  get a job building ships, submarines, cars, washing machines, fridges, TV’s,  Hills hoists, Victa Lawn Mowers or make tyres at Bridgestone tyres. 

Lightburn Washing Machine Company even made a car called a  Zeta. It was not much of  a car, but at least it was Australian and we built it. I worked at Stanvac  where we made our own Petrol, Diesel, Kerosene and Oil. We had Oil Rigs in  Bass Strait, North West Shelf and the Timor Sea. We even had  Australian owned Service Stations like (H.C. Sleigh) Golden Fleece and many of  us young wanna-be mechanics back then worked as a driveway attendant. (Just like  Stanley)

Migrant Robbers Pee on their Victims because They Feel Hopelessness: Swedish Interior Minister By Richard Miller

     There have been an increasing number of migrant crimes where the victim is urinated upon. Why? Well, it is the thing that victims of racism do, because the criminals, sorry, oppressed people, feel hopelessness, said the Swedish Interior minister:

“Young migrants who carry out sadistic and degrading robberies against Swedes do so because they feel hopeless and like they do not belong in society, according to Sweden’s Social Democratic Minister of the Interior Mikael Damberg. In a recent high profile case, an 18-year-old was robbed by two younger assailants who, among other things, peed on him and forced him to open his mouth while doing so. In an interview with SVT, Mikael Damberg was asked to explain why youth robberies are increasing. “I don’t think I should have an explanation. I will wait for criminologists and others to tell me what it is due to. But it is obvious that there is a total lack of moral perception here, where these young men can commit almost any disgusting action against other young people. It is something that is lacking in the parenting role, but also that society does not intervene early enough”, said Damberg. The interviewer then asked Damberg why crime is increasing in the “vulnerable areas”. “It must be about both lack of parenting and norms, morals and values that are crossed in these gangs, and that is very serious. The second thing is that some of the young people feel hopeless, that they don’t do well in school and that they feel that there is no place for them in society”, the Interior Minister concluded.

Is a Cell Phone a Cancer Bomb? By Mrs Vera West

     There has been an on-going debate about the possible cancer effects of cell/mobile phone use. However, this article gives a different spin to the debate, that there is apparently a danger message in the actual phone itself, or at least American phones. I have no idea whether this is applicable to phones that one can get in Australia, but for what it is worth:

“In 2017, Wendy Mesley with Canada's CBC News conducted an investigation into a little-known fact about cellphones. Inside the manual is a warning, one that could drastically change the use of cellphones as you know it — if only it were taken seriously. In short, the warning states to keep the phone a certain distance away from your body — usually 5 to 15 millimeters (mm), or two-tenths to six-tenths of an inch — to limit exposure to radiofrequency (RF) exposure to under the federal safety limit. In the video Mesley asks random cellphone users to try to find the warning hidden in their phone, and none are successful. She pulls it up on her iPhone, reading: "To reduce exposure to RF energy, use a hands-free option, such as speakerphone … Carry iPhone at least 5 millimeters away from your body to ensure exposure levels remain at or below the as tested levels." If you carry your phone in your pocket or your bra, or hold it against your ear when you talk, you're violating this warning with unknown health consequences.

Resistance in the Face of Adversity By Chris Knight

     For readers’ reference, three interesting articles on the subject of organising resistance in the face of adversity, and adversity is all around those who would challenge and fight against globalism and its discontents. There is no actual plan given, but rather, thoughts to get the ball rolling, because organisation must begin somewhere, and given the tyranny of the establishment, starting at the grassroots is always the safest, since all large organisations quickly get infiltrated and destroyed from within, for the enemy has the resources to do this all day long.

     I do not agree with all of the sentiments below, but it is still a good starting point:
