So Much for “Believe All Women’: The Case of Ellie Williams By Mrs Vera West

     This is a pretty incredible story even for the heart of darkness, degenerate Britain, where someone who claimed to have been raped and brutalised by a “Asian” grooming gang, with terrible phots including a cut off finger, is arrested on perverting the course of justice charges. At present that is possible, but the injuries are just like those other girls have received, and we know that the British police have allowed the grooming gangs to continue because they thought it would be racist to do anything about brutal rapists.

“A 19-year-old girl has been charged with perverting the course of justice after telling police she was drugged and raped by an Asian sex gang in Cumbria. The teenager, from Barrow-in-Furness, is currently in custody awaiting a court hearing, having allegedly breached her bail conditions. Last night Cumbria Police confirmed it was investigating an incident of physical and sexual abuse that was reported by a woman in her late teens on Tuesday evening. The girl later alleged on social media that she had been beaten, burned, drugged and trafficked for sex throughout the north of England by Pakistani men. Her post included pictures of bruises, scratches and burn marks, and sparked a social media storm. Cumbria Police revealed on Wednesday that they had launched a 12 month investigation into claims of sexual and physical abuse by an organised gang who were said to have trafficked girls and young women across the north of England. An independent review team was called in to assess their handling of the investigation and safeguarding surrounding it. Today the force said the only charges to arise from the investigation was against a young woman. In a statement it said: 'Cumbria Constabulary can confirm that a 19-year-old woman, from Barrow-in-Furness, is subject of ongoing criminal proceedings. 'She was charged with seven counts of perverting the course of justice on 26th March 2020 and was released on bail. 'She has subsequently been arrested on 20th May for breach of her bail conditions and has been remanded in custody, court date to be notified. ' In the girl's shocking social media post, she'd claimed she was put into a car on Tuesday and taken to an address so that three Asian men could have sex with her. 'Afterwards I was beaten because I was in debt to these men for not attending "parties" for over seven weeks due to coronavirus,' she wrote.

Oh My Darling Clementine! By Mrs Vera West

     John Ford’s My Darling Clementine (1946) is a Western film starring Henry Fonda as Wyatt Earp. That ethos is a long way away, in this is a world of dark feminism, where they wish for men to die. Why did men bother creating civilisation and all of these creature comforts, including arts grants, then? Why bother maintaining it? Let it all fall to the barbarians, who will surely arise:

“Writer Clementine Ford will not lose thousands of dollars in funding despite the firebrand feminist triggering a review into a grants program by tweeting “the coronavirus isn't killing men fast enough”, a councillor says. Greens councillor for Melbourne City Council Rohan Leppert confirmed a review was underway into the selection processes of a funding program supporting Melbourne’s artistic community during the COVID-19 pandemic. Lord Mayor Sally Capp requested a review into the funding program on Monday, saying she found Ford’s comments “deliberately divisive and incredibly unhelpful”. Mr Leppert, who chairs Melbourne City Council’s art portfolio, said Ford strongly met the funding criteria with the review unable to revoke the feminist writer’s grant. “This review will not and cannot undo any grant decision made, but — like all reviews into our grants programs — it can consider whether the policy settings were ideal and were implemented well,” he tweeted on Monday. “This will not be a Trojan horse for the censorship of artists or the arts.” In a tweet sent on Saturday, which appears to have been deleted, Ford said in an online conversation on the unpaid work performed by woman: “Honestly the coronavirus isn't killing men fast enough.” On Sunday, Ford said she was sorry for anyone hurt by her words and had “reconsidered her flippancy”. “Regardless of what people want to think about me, I have no wish to compound harm and grief for anyone, nor be dismissive of the very real impact and fear a crisis like this presents,” she said. “But I also think it’s fair to be angry at the lack of interest in this crisis’ impact on women.”

Will They Really Ping, Xi Jinping By James Reed

     It goes to show how little I know, as the Chinese elite turn against Xi Jinping, who I thought was a god emperor for Life. Or was that Putin? Anyway:
  https://www.theaustralian.com.au/business/the-wall-street-journal/coronavirus-chinas-chernobyl-effect-turns-elite-against-xi-jinping/news-story/7004ffb512ae60bd5af9c40164b9d2a0?type=curated&position=1&overallPos=1&utm_source=TheAustralian&utm_medium=email&utm_campaign=editorial&utm_content=TATodaysHeadlinesSubPM&utm_source=TheAustralian&utm_medium=email&utm_campaign=editorial&utm_content=TATodaysHeadlinesSubPM

“As Chinese authorities botched their response to the coronavirus outbreak in Wuhan, a quote from the HBO miniseries “Chernobyl” went viral on the Chinese messaging app WeChat: “What is the cost of lies? It’s not that we’ll mistake them for the truth. The real danger is that if we hear enough lies, then we no longer recognise the truth at all.” The analogy between the 1986 nuclear accident and the 2020 pandemic — Communist regimes trying to cover up the truth of a disaster and thereby worsening it — may seem a little pat. It may also seem wishful: After all, the Chinese Communist Party, unlike the Soviet one, emerged from the unrest of 1989 with a tighter grip on power. Edward Luttwak doesn’t exactly agree with the analogy, but he takes it seriously. “The Wuhan virus has made it impossible for Xi Jinping to continue with this program of staying in power for another 10 years,” he says. “Impossible.” Mr Luttwak, 77, knows a thing or two about regime change. A military strategist and historian, he may be best known for his 1968 book, “Coup d’État: A Practical Handbook.” Rumour has it that a copy was found on the body of Moroccan General Mohammad Oufkir after he failed to overthrow King Hassan in 1972.

Social Credit to the Corona Rescue By James Reed

     You would think that the banks would be in fear and trembling, with the fall of the cliff that the Australian economy has undertaken, businesses shut down, economic activity in the toilet, or not even there, a looming property price crash, jobless levels set to rival, maybe surpass the Great Depression. So, why are the banks so happy? Sure, they are all cashed up, holding more cash than usual, but cash is but a small part of the modern financial sector. Not to worry, the Reserve Bank has plenty of dough to splash around, like a corporate Santa:
  https://www.abc.net.au/news/2020-03-31/are-australian-banks-safe-amid-the-shock-of-coronavirus/12101830

“If the cash gets low, the Reserve Bank stands ready to assist. Since 2015, in the wake of the global financial crisis, the RBA has offered Australian banks what's known as the 'Committed Liquidity Facility'. In the RBA's own words, it "entails the central bank committing to stand ready to provide a bank with liquidity against high-quality collateral that would otherwise be illiquid in the market". In other words, in times of distress, banks can bundle up loans into securities and park them with the central bank for a very modest fee, in return for cash. This emergency line of credit is set at more than $220 billion this year — and if that's not enough, the RBA would likely scale it up or set up something else if necessary. The central bank is also offering term funding of "at least $90 billion" to the banking system to allow lenders to support small and medium-sized business, but it will also allow lenders to shore up cheap reserves. Some 130 banks, building societies and credit unions can borrow from the RBA dirt cheap, at a fixed rate of 0.25 per cent, for funds equivalent to up to 3 per cent of their total outstanding credit to households and businesses, in the first instance. "It's not free money but it's close to it," Mr Johnson said.”

Does Mathematical Probability Support Uncle Len’s Life as a Loser and Quitter? By Uncle Len, Who Gives Up Even Before He Starts!

     I started life by reading every soiled self-help book I found tossed out in the trash, and now look at my success, here in my little rusty trusty shed! In the end I decided that I would be better off making big life decisions, by not consciously deciding at all, as beings with agency would do, but by just tossing a coin, then going for the opposite thing I first thought of. In the end the maths got so complicated I just gave up, this being before the age of lap top computers and smart phones, which apparently think for you now. Certainly, the users don’t seem to be doing much thinking.
  https://www.studyfinds.org/quit-the-status-quo-people-are-happier-making-big-decisions-on-a-coin-flip/

“Are you having trouble deciding whether or not to move? Is it time to quit your job but you just can’t go through with it? A new study suggests a simple coin flip not only helps people make big choices, but they’re happier when the coin tells them to make such a huge life change. University of Chicago economist Steven Levitt says a study of happiness after making major decisions reveals that people should actually embrace quitting. His study finds that participants who go through with their coin flip choices were living happier lives six months later. “Society teaches us ‘quitters never win and winners never quit,’ but in reality the data from my experiment suggests we would all be better off if we did more quitting,” Levitt said in a statement. The study, published in The Review of Economic Studies, presented subjects with a number of questions such as, “Should I quit my job?” and “Should I propose?” The participants could also make their own questions, like “Should I get a tattoo" The yes or no choices were then assigned to each side of the coin. With a third-party watching the results, participants were surveyed two months and six months after their consequential coin flip. Although people tended to favor sticking with the status quo after two months, their attitudes changed by the six-month mark. Participants and the third-parties observing them found that coin flips telling subjects to make a major life change ended up making them much happier half a year later. Levitt says that participants in the online study also said they’d make the same decision if they had to choose again. The co-author of Freakonomics adds the results differ from basic economic theories because those models focus on gains and losses and not how the choice impacts how you feel. Levitt argues that change is generally the best option when you’re in a tough spot. “A good rule of thumb in decision making is, whenever you cannot decide what you should do, choose the action that represents a change, rather than continuing the status quo.”

What Happens if We Have No Magnetic Field Left at All? By Brian Simpson

     I have often laid awake a night thinking about things to worry about, so that I could call myself a chronic insomniac, but I have not, until now, worried about the Earth’s magnetic field disintegrating. Maybe it will not, but it does seem to be diminishing, causing big techy problems.
  https://news.sky.com/story/earths-magnetic-field-which-protects-us-from-solar-radiation-is-mysteriously-weakening-11992022

“Earth's magnetic field, which is vital to protecting life on our planet from solar radiation, is mysteriously weakening. On average the planet's magnetic field has lost almost 10% of its strength over the last two centuries, but there is a large localised region of weakness stretching from Africa to South America. Known as the South Atlantic Anomaly, the field strength in this area has rapidly shrunk over the past 50 years just as the area itself has grown and moved westward. Over the past five years a second centre of minimum intensity has developed southwest of Africa, which researchers believe indicates the anomaly could split into two separate cells. The anomaly is causing technical difficulties for satellites orbiting the Earth. European Space Agency (ESA) scientists from the Swarm Data, Innovation and Science Cluster (DISC) are using data from ESA's Swarm satellite constellation to study the anomaly. Swarm satellites are designed to identify and precisely measure the different magnetic signals that make up Earth's magnetic field. Dr Jurgen Matzka, from the German Research Centre for Geosciences, said: "The new, eastern minimum of the South Atlantic Anomaly has appeared over the last decade and in recent years is developing vigorously. "We are very lucky to have the Swarm satellites in orbit to investigate the development of the South Atlantic Anomaly. The challenge now is to understand the processes in Earth's core driving these changes." One speculation is that the weakening of the field is a sign that the Earth is heading for a pole reversal - in which the north and south magnetic poles flip. This flip doesn't happen immediately, but instead would occur over the course of a couple of centuries during which there would be multiple north and south magnetic poles all around the globe. "Such events have occurred many times throughout the planet's history," said ESA, noting "we are long overdue by the average rate at which these reversals take place (roughly every 250,000 years)".

Corona Round 2: Get Ready to Shut Down Before Re-opening! By Brian Simpson

     In clown world, the shutdowns, according to one smart guy, did nothing, well, more harm than good, but it now looks like another round of corona joy is coming, so will it be yet another round of this craziness? Sure.
  https://www.dailymail.co.uk/news/article-8351649/Lockdown-waste-time-kill-saved-claims-Nobel-laureate.html

“The coronavirus lockdown could have caused more deaths than it saved, a Nobel laureate scientist has claimed. Michael Levitt, a Stanford University professor who correctly predicted the initial scale of the pandemic, suggested the decision to keep people indoors was motivated by 'panic' rather than the best science. Professor Levitt also said the modelling that caused the government to bring in the lockdown - carried out by Professor Neil Ferguson - over-estimated the death toll by '10 or 12 times'. His claims echo those in a JP Morgan report that said lockdowns failed to alter the course of the pandemic but have instead 'destroyed millions of livelihoods'. Author Marko Kolanovic, a trained physicist and a strategist for JP Morgan, said governments had been spooked by 'flawed scientific papers' into imposing lockdowns which were 'inefficient or late' and had little effect. He said falling infection rates since lockdowns were lifted suggest that the virus 'likely has its own dynamics' which are 'unrelated to often inconsistent lockdown measures'. Prof Levitt told The Telegraph: 'I think lockdown saved no lives. I think it may have cost lives. It will have saved a few road accident lives, things like that, but social damage – domestic abuse, divorces, alcoholism – has been extreme. 'And then you have those who were not treated for other conditions.' Professor Levitt, who won the Nobel Prize for chemistry in 2013 for the 'development of multiscale models for complex chemical systems', has said for two months that most experts predictions about coronavirus are wrong. He also believes that the Government should encourage Britons to wear masks and find other ways to continue working while socially distancing instead.

Race and Covid-19 By Brian Simpson

     Vdare.com has published a series of articles by race realist Lance Welton, who has advanced thesis of racial variability in Covid-19 infections. He seems to be spot on with this, although earlier in the year I was doubtful. So, full marks, and an early minute to him.
  https://vdare.com/articles/noah-carl-vindicated-wuflu-varies-by-race-as-leftist-enforcer-adam-rutherford-just-found-out

“Our Ruling Class in Britain and America recently decreed that is now acceptable to report race differences in the incidence of Covid-19, partly because minorities seem to be hardest hit and it sees a chance to blame whites. This is something of a pyrrhic victory for a young British sociologist called Dr. Noah Carl,  who was fired last year from Cambridge University for “problematic work” on “race and intelligence” which might “legitimise racist stereotypes” and which hurt the feelings of some of the college’s students [Cambridge college sacks researcher over links with far right, By Richard Adams, The Guardian, May 1, 2019]. Carl’s “problematic” work included an academic journal article [How Stifling Debate Around Race, Genes and IQ Can Do Harm, Evolutionary Psychological Science, 2018] in which he had the temerity to suggest that suppressing the concept of “race” might lead to just as many social problems as not doing so—one of which would be ignoring race differences in the ability to fight off different diseases. This is exactly what has now happened. As part of the academic and journalistic mobbing that pressured Cambridge University into firing Carl, Carl’s article on this subject was specifically highlighted, in the leftist Guardian newspaper, who subtly presented it as evidence of Carl’s wickedness: “…he has previously defended his work on race and genetics by arguing that ‘stifling debate around taboo topics can itself do active harm’” [Cambridge gives role to academic accused of racist stereotyping, By Richard Adams, The Guardian, December 7, 2018]. I reported on this here as part of my coverage on the mounting Leftist War On Science

When America Goes Down By Chris Knight

     Ferdinand Bardamu, the protagonist from L-F Celine’s Journey to the End of the Night (1932), surfaces today writing dystopic essays about the end of the West and the collapse of all we know from the forces of degeneracy. The issue is that what is at the time promoted as just, human rights or whatever, down the track has socially corrosive effects. Here is a potted history of the decay of the USA.
  https://www.theoccidentalobserver.net/2020/05/23/the-end-of-american-empire/

“The Federalists were defeated in the presidential election of 1800 by the Democratic-Republicans, who ushered in the age of Jeffersonian democracy. There were more White males who had been accorded full suffrage in 1824, which saw the end of Jeffersonian democracy, than in 1800, when it began. The mid-1820s witnessed the dissolution of the Democratic-Republicans and the growth of the highly influential movement for Jacksonian democracy, which opposed the continued disenfranchisement of non-propertied White males. During the 1840s and 1850s, the movement continued to gather momentum until by 1860, White male suffrage was recognized in all 33 states of the American union. In the aftermath of the Civil War, male suffrage was further expanded to include Blacks. The effect of the new legislation was mitigated by post-Reconstruction state governments, which used grandfather clauses and literacy tests to keep Blacks away from the polls. Women were accorded full suffrage in 1919, another watershed in American history. This would have far reaching consequences for contemporary US politics. Female suffrage would shift electoral voting patterns in a more leftward direction. The next piece of momentous legislation was the Civil Rights Act, passed in 1964, which dismantled racial segregation in the South, putting an end to freedom of association. Barry Goldwater, who opposed the Civil Rights Act because it violated states’ rights, lost the 1964 election to Lyndon Johnson, the architect of the modern American welfare state. In 1965, Congress passed the Immigration and Nationality Act, delivering the final death knell to what was left of the old republic.

The Myth of Tiananmen By James Reed

     This is interesting, and I came across this while looking in the internet cupboard for something beefy to eat, eh, write. According to Matthews, the Tiananmen square massacre did not happen and was merely a construct by dishonest Western reporters. The protesting students had mostly left the square. Here is Jay Mathews, a reporter for The Washington Post, deconstructing the Tiananmen myth.
  https://archives.cjr.org/behind_the_news/the_myth_of_tiananmen.php

“The problem is this: as far as can be determined from the available evidence, no one died that night in Tiananmen Square. A few people may have been killed by random shooting on streets near the square, but all verified eyewitness accounts say that the students who remained in the square when troops arrived were allowed to leave peacefully. Hundreds of people, most of them workers and passersby, did die that night, but in a different place and under different circumstances. The Chinese government estimates more than 300 fatalities. Western estimates are somewhat higher. Many victims were shot by soldiers on stretches of Changan Jie, the Avenue of Eternal Peace, about a mile west of the square, and in scattered confrontations in other parts of the city, where, it should be added, a few soldiers were beaten or burned to death by angry workers. The resilient tale of an early morning Tiananmen massacre stems from several false eyewitness accounts in the confused hours and days after the crackdown. Human rights experts George Black and Robin Munro, both outspoken critics of the Chinese government, trace many of the rumor’s roots in their 1993 book, Black Hands of Beijing: Lives of Defiance in China’s Democracy Movement. Probably the most widely disseminated account appeared first in the Hong Kong press: a Qinghua University student described machine guns mowing down students in front of the Monument to the People’s Heroes in the middle of the square. The New York Times gave this version prominent display on June 12, just a week after the event, but no evidence was ever found to confirm the account or verify the existence of the alleged witness. Times reporter Nicholas Kristof challenged the report the next day, in an article that ran on the bottom of an inside page; the myth lived on. Student leader Wu’er Kaixi said he had seen 200 students cut down by gunfire, but it was later proven that he left the square several hours before the events he described allegedly occurred.

Joe Biden Says He is Going to Defeat Joe Biden!!! By Charles Taylor

     I thought that this one just had to be a joke, a troll, but no, Joe Biden said: “I’m prepared to say that I have a record over 40 years, and that I’m going to beat Joe Biden” Trump is bad, traitorous, but traitors still know who they are. This is senility on a whole new level. And, to top it off, he dropped his guard and did the racist thing: ““If you have a problem figuring out whether you’re for me or Trump, then you ain’t black,” Biden told Charlamagne, not in response to any question, but to the host’s statement: “It’s a long way until November, we’ve got more questions.”

  https://www.breitbart.com/2020-election/2020/05/22/joe-biden-you-aint-black-if-you-dont-back-me-over-trump/

     All that would sink a Republican candidate, but you see, senile Joe will defeat Trump and permit the insane neo-cons and other demonic members of the tribe of Satan to end human life on Earth, so that Hell can give new living space. Is that extreme? Well, if one can not even know who one is, and be president, then anything goes.

Londonistan: Christian Churches Close but Islamic Call to Prayer Heard by All! By Richard Miller

     Of course, it is symbolic of the future of the UK, looking ahead a few years, something the white capitalist would find inconceivable, operating in a paradigm where all that counts are the money-grubbing markets of today.
  https://www.lifesitenews.com/news/london-will-blare-islamic-call-to-prayer-during-ramadan-as-churches-remain-closed

“A London suburb totalling a mere 15 square miles in size and with a population of less than 300,000 people has granted permission for the first time to nine mosques to broadcast the Islamic call to prayer during Ramadan.
The news was published earlier this month in an article in The Metro, which included a video of the “Adhan” being chanted above from the roof of a mosque in Waltham Forest. Waltham Forest is one London’s 32 boroughs, each of which has its own elected local council. Clare Coghill, the leader of Waltham Forest Council, said that the Adhan being broadcast was “an alternative form of connection” for Muslims, with mosques currently closed along with all other places of worship in the U.K. as part of the nationwide coronavirus lockdown. “Ramadan is normally a time for the Muslim community to come together to pray and break their fast,” she said. “Like many aspects of all our lives, this has been affected by Covid-19 and the requirement to remain socially distant. As an alternative form of connection during this special month, the Waltham Forest Council of Mosques contacted the council to request that as an alternative to congregating they announce a short call to prayer at a number of mosques adapted to remind worshippers to stay at home,” she continued. “The council considered the request as it would with any religious or faith group looking to responsibly worship during this difficult time. Ramadan Mubarak to all our Muslim community.” The Adhan will be broadcast each day at sunset, with an additional broadcast each Friday. The words in the Adhan state: “Allah is the greatest. I bear witness that there is no god except Allah. I bear witness that Muhammad is the Messenger of Allah. Come to prayer. Come to salvation.” Cardinal Vincent Nichols, the senior Catholic cleric in the U.K., marked the beginning of Ramadan by joining a host of religious leaders in an interfaith event titled “Ramadan at Home,” organised by the Naz Legacy.”

A Manufactured Panicdemic By Mrs Vera West

     Although 9/11 was the main cause, the anthrax crisis of 2001, forgotten by many, led to the US government romping in their PATRIOT Act, winding back personal freedoms. The same is occurring now with Covid-19, with the lock-down, imprisonment powers, and tracking and surveillance, that would have been unheard of but a year ago. The mainstream is protective of the notion that SARS-Cov-2 arose naturally, with President Trump being the most notable dissenter, even though there is evidence that the virus was created in a lab. So, what lies behind all of this? Here is Dr Mercola interviewing Dr Meryl Nass, a leading vaccination critic on the shape of things to come, soon:
  https://articles.mercola.com/sites/articles/archive/2020/05/24/how-did-coronavirus-originate.aspx?cid_source=dnl&cid_medium=email&cid_content=art1ReadMore&cid=20200524Z1&et_cid=DM547431&et_rid=878800852

“Like everybody else, I wondered whether this was a natural jump from a bat or some other animal to humans and scratched my head about it,” Nass says. While she’s not a virologist, she does have a three-decade background in biological warfare and is aware of what’s been created in the past, what it takes, where they may be made, and how it has been done. “So, I remained curious. Then on February 19 online, and in the March 7 print edition, a group of scientists had a "Correspondence" published in The Lancet, and it was a very curious piece to me. It didn't make sense. And these were very prominent signatories, including the former head of the National Science Foundation, one of the former top people at CDC, the director of the Wellcome Trust, coronavirus researchers and funders, and other prominent people. What they said is, ‘We need to quash the rumors that this came from a lab. That is a conspiracy theory and we need to get rid of it. They wrote: ‘The rapid, open, and transparent sharing of data on this outbreak is now being threatened by rumours and misinformation around its origins. We stand together to strongly condemn conspiracy theories suggesting that COVID-19 does not have a natural origin.’

A Super Rip Off By Bruce Bennett

     The light-hearted article of the day. I thought that Super-man was a bit of a rip off of Nietzsche’s idea of the overman/super-man, but no, there was someone before the big blue boy scout:
  https://www.quora.com/Which-comic-book-character-ripoffs-were-more-successful-than-the-original-character
  https://www.esquire.com/entertainment/a23203/original-superman/

“In 1930, a new adventure story offered American readers a cutting-edge hero — a man with titanic strength, bulletproof skin, and the ability to leap tall buildings in a single bound — but his name wasn't Superman. The character was Hugo Danner, protagonist of a luridly bad novel titled Gladiator, by Philip Wylie. The Superman we all know, created by Jerry Siegel, wouldn't appear on the cover of a published comic book until eight years later. Reading Wylie's Gladiator alongside this new movie delivers a particularly weird experience for a whole bunch of reasons. One of them being the possibility that the very aspects of Snyder's new Superman that felt the most fresh and game-changing turn out to be perhaps not so new at all. Looking past the nonsense, the book remains hard to read without suspecting the Man of Steel's original creator, Jerry Siegel, did some significant borrowing back in 1938. Hugo Danner comes from a small, rural town (Colorado instead of Kansas, but still); Danner spends a great deal of his time concealing his strength; as a young man, Danner even builds himself a remote fortress where he could find solitude. "I can do things, Dad. It kind of scares me," Danner says early in the book. "I can jump higher'n a house. I can run faster'n a train." Later on, Danner come out with this: "I'm like a man made of iron."

Pandemic Persecution By James Reed

     That’s the spirit, never led a good crisis go to waste, and milk its toxins for all it is worth, especially if you are tyrannical Marxist/Maoist regime with a hatred of religion, the Covid-19 pandemic is yet another excuse to smash religious groups, not just Christians:
  https://www.gatestoneinstitute.org/16051/china-religion-persecution

“Since early 2020, China has been doubling down on its already extreme suppression of religious freedom, and the Covid-19 outbreak has done nothing to curb the Chinese Communist Party's (CCP) enthusiasm. If anything, the virus outbreak has served as an excuse to crack down even more on freedom of religion. In February, for instance, officials came to inspect whether a church in Henan province was implementing lockdown instructions, but, according to one church member interviewed by Bitter Winter, "seeing some bible verses written on a blackboard they said, 'China is the land of the Communist Party, and we are not allowed to hold religious beliefs'". The officials then "smashed everything in the venue and left, locking the door..." The CCP also continued its crackdown on The Church of Almighty God (CAG), a group China banned and that it considers a "dangerous cult". Between February and March, authorities arrested at least 325 members of the group "as a result of investigations in the name of epidemic prevention". One member of the group, who had been released, said that the police had "threatened to send her to the coronavirus epicenter in Hubei Province to be infected if she continued practicing her faith". At the height of the epidemic in early February, authorities in the province of Shanxi "launched a special crackdown campaign against the CAG, encouraging masses to report on its members". A government employee from Anhui province said that he had been instructed "not to delay investigations into CAG members because of the pandemic: On the contrary, government personnel should use preventive measures as a pretext to enter residents' homes".

The Black Jogger Case By Charles Taylor (Florida)

     America is a white racist Nazi bad, bad, wicked, country that likes to shoot Black joggers; that is the narrative that the liberal media and the Left have developed on the slain Black jogger case of Ahmaud Arbery, killed by two whites. Joe Biden said that he was killed in cold blood, and NBA “superstsar” LeBron James raged: “We’re literally hunted EVERYDAY/EVERYTIME [sic] we step foot outside the comfort of our homes! Can’t even go for a damn jog man!” Perhaps he should try jogging in his best trendy gear in certain parts of Africa and see how safe it is. Jim Goad has written about the “jogging” activities of Arbery, captured on video tape:

“…surveillance footage shows Ahmaud Arbery in mid-stride as he vigorously jogs down the block. It also shows him working up a sweat by walking around outside a construction site. It also shows him “jogging” through that half-constructed house for over three minutes. And, in the video that shocked a world that apparently doesn’t pay close attention to what’s actually on the tape, it finally shows him running—around the side of Travis and Greg McMichael’s pickup truck, then making a sharp turn and sprinting straight back toward Travis McMichael, whom he attacks and begins wrestling for the gun. “It’s not nearly as dangerous to jog while black as it is to attempt grabbing a loaded gun out of someone’s hands.”

Trump and the Money Men Show Their True Colours By Chris Knight

     It was all so predictable; President Donald Duck, who could have prevented the lockdown by shutting the borders fast, as many other nations, such as Mongolia did, but did not since the US is a cuck for migrants, including China, now faces the grim economic prospects of paying people decent unemployment benefits, after destroying their jobs, or let them starve, constraining their dying protests by the guns of the military. A version of this problem will face Australia too, of course. Most of the jobs that have been lost are gone for good, because economies are not like light switches, that can be turned on or off, but more like organisms, who when shot through the heart, simply die:

“The Trump administration, top Republicans and powerful corporate lobbyists mounted fresh opposition Thursday to extending enhanced unemployment benefits to the growing number of Americans who are out of work, raising the prospect of significant cuts to their weekly checks unless lawmakers act by the end of July. The latest round of threats came hours after U.S. government released dour new jobless figures showing an additional 2.4 million Americans sought unemployment aid just last week, further compounding an economic crisis that already rivals the Great Depression in its severity. Over the span of nine weeks, more than 38 million Americans have filed unemployment claims across the country because of the impact of the coronavirus pandemic. In March, Congress passed a law that gave people filing for unemployment benefits an additional $600 each week until July. The debate about whether to extend those benefits this summer has touched off fierce debate in Washington over the extent to which continued aid is necessary to stimulate a sagging economy. Some White House officials and Republicans say the extra payments are creating a disincentive for people to return to the workforce, potentially holding back the economic recovery. But so far there is no consensus over how to proceed, with some calling for phasing out the benefits entirely and others supporting a one-time payment that could encourage Americans to return to work.

Against Lockdown By Chris Knight

     Closed borders? Really? Flights from Wuhan, ground zero of the Wuhan flu, continue to the US, which seemingly cannot shut its borders if its life depended upon it:

“Flights are continuing to land in the US from Wuhan and the rest of China and Europe despite the travel ban put in place to stop the spread of coronavirus. According to Flight Tracker data, people are arriving into the US every day from the countries that have been blamed for sparking the outbreak across America, with flights even touching down from Wuhan where the global pandemic originated. This comes as warnings mount that passengers are not being screened properly for the deadly virus on arrival into the US and as questions are being raised over how - if at all - the mandatory 14-day quarantine for returning travellers is being enforced.
According to Flight Tracker, five flights had landed into New York airports JFK and Newark from London, UK, airports by 4:30p.m. ET since the start of the day Wednesday. More flights are also scheduled to land later into the evening and night.”

UK Decay By Richard Miller

     Thanks to the site Trad News.blogspot.com for the references, which show that the UK is even more decayed that I had thought. It is a wide-ranging depressing read, and here I will only give a snip from the child rape grooming article, since this phenomenon brings it all together. If a nation cannot defend its children from predators, and in fact allows it all to occur, then it is finished. All over red rover.

“Earlier this week, Lord Pearson continued his questioning of the government over the recent report on police and local authorities’ failures to tackle grooming gangs. The answer revealed that the government has not even estimated the number of victims over the years.
