Poisoning the UK By Peter West

     Yawn … hasn’t the entire UK population been poisoned by the Russian yet, so stop Donald Trump, increase immigration …  https://www.bbc.com/news/uk-44760875

“Police have launched a murder inquiry after a woman exposed to the nerve agent Novichok in Wiltshire died. Dawn Sturgess, 44, died in hospital on Sunday evening after falling ill on 30 June. Charlie Rowley, 45, who was also exposed to the nerve agent in Amesbury, remains critically ill in hospital. Kremlin spokesman Dmitry Peskov said Russia was “deeply concerned” about the incident - but said accusations that it was involved are “absurd”. The UK government previously blamed Russia for the poisoning of former spy Sergei Skripal and his daughter Yulia with Novichok in Salisbury in March. Russian authorities denied any involvement in the poisoning. Investigators say the possibility that the two cases are linked is a “clear line of inquiry”. Theresa May said she was “appalled and shocked” by the death of mother of three Ms Sturgess, from Durrington. Home Secretary Sajid Javid will chair a meeting of the government’s emergency committee Cobra later today. A post-mortem examination of Ms Sturgess is due to take place and her family has been informed, police said.”

The UN Gun Control Conspiracy By John Steele

     I was marginally hopeful that President Trump would fight for US gun rights against the evil UN one world agenda, but apparently, not so:  http://fromthetrenchesworldreport.com/media-silent-as-us-agrees-to-full-implementation-of-united-nations-gun-control-pact/229586

“The Third Review Conference (RevCon) of the United Nations’ Program of Action (PoA) on Small Arms and Light Weapons was held in New York last week with a 2018 agreement, which states that its purpose is to serve as “a renewed commitment to prevent, combat and eradicate the illicit trade in small arms and light weapons in all its aspects.” “We, the States participating in the third United Nations Conference to review progress made in the implementation of the Program of Action to prevent, combat and eradicate the illicit trade in small arms and light weapons in all its aspects, convened at United Nations Headquarters in New York from 18 to 29 June 2018 to review progress made in implementation and identify priorities for strengthened implementation, reaffirm our commitment to the full and effective implementation of all of the provisions of the Program of Action and the International Tracing Instrument, with a view to ending the human suffering caused by the illicit trade in small arms and light weapons.”

Creeping Socialism By Chris Knight

     It is all happening in the United States, with the deranged Left openly advocating socialism and crazy measures such as empting the jails:  https://gellerreport.com/2018/07/democratic-embracing-socialism.html/

How Mad is Sweden? By Richard Miller

     If Sweden was a cow, a vet would have to put it down, because it would be cruel to let a dying animal suffer in pain.  https://www.jihadwatch.org/2018/07/sweden-dental-hygienist-fined-50000-for-identifying-child-refugees-who-were-actually-adults

“Bernt Herlitz is being severely punished for trying to reveal the age of fake children. Now he has to pay 425 thousand kronor [$48,500] within 30 days to his former employer Region Gotland – money he does not have. The language of the judgment is harsh and at times activist against Herlitz. Previously, Samhällsnytt revealed that several of the people whom he suggested to the Migration Board were discovered to be adults as a result of medical age tests. Despite this and despite some of them being convicted of gross violent crime, they will stay in Sweden, thanks to the amnesty of the government and the Center Party. Samhällsnytt has previously noted the case of the dental hygienist Bernt Herlitz from Gotland in several articles. Herlitz has responded that several asylum seekers who were registered as unaccompanied children showed a dental development that is more typical for people over 25 years old.

This is a Real Problem: The Decline of the Mathematical Mind By Dr John Jensen

     Mathematics and physics are my passions in life, but I have grave concerns about the survival of basic knowledge, which permits civilisation to continue. In a nutshell, people are becoming so dumbed down, even given technology, which they use like “magic,” that if some sort of collapse occurs, it may not be possible for any sort of speedy rebuilding of advanced knowledge, contrary to thinkers such as Lewis Dartnell, in The Knowledge: How to Rebuild Civilization in the Aftermath of a Cataclysm, (Penguin, New York, 2015). People may not be even able to understand long sentences, like the previous one.  http://the-knowledge.org/en-gb/the-book/

     Rebuilding the world from first scientific principles will, at some point require a high degree of mathematical knowledge, and I do not believe that Dartnell has considered how difficult it will be to preserve mathematical knowledge. Consider:

The Right to Silence By Ian Wilson LL.B

     Here is a splendid lecture, based on the American 5th Amendment, about why one should not talk to the police, if one is a suspect. If one is not, say a witness, or a victim of a crime, then the matter is entirely different of course.  Although based on the American jurisdiction, Australia has the right to silence, so the same arguments made by the learned professor, also apply to us:  https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=d-7o9xYp7eE

     Professor James Duane, Regent University Professor of Law, is brilliant and extremely persuasive. Simply view this, then store it away in your memory, and hopefully you will never need the information.

Now Feminism Bites the Corporate bum By Mrs Vera West

     I have been waiting for feminism to implode since the 1970s. I thought at the time, once feminist demands conflict with corporate capitalism, boy, I mean, girl, then we will see action. Now it is starting to happen, first with the Me Too movement, and then this:  https://amp.smh.com.au/business/workplace/new-zealand-may-force-private-companies-to-pick-women-directors-20180708-p4zq85.html

“New Zealand’s government is prepared to force private businesses to appoint more women directors if companies don’t make sufficient progress themselves, Minister for Women Julie Anne Genter says. The government said last week that it will ensure half of all directors on state sector boards and committees are women by 2021, compared with 46 per cent at the end of 2017. By comparison, women held just 19 per cent of directorships across the 159 companies listed on the main board of the New Zealand stock exchange, according to a report in January. “We’re awaiting the next report, and I’m keen to see where they get to,” Genter told Television New Zealand’s Q+A program Sunday. “If they’re not going to make progress, if it’s going to sit there at 19 per cent, then we might have to start thinking about ways government can incentivise them. Under Prime Minister Jacinda Ardern, the world’s youngest female leader, the government is forging ahead with plans to change the way women are treated in society and allow them to achieve their full potential, including an ambitious goal to eliminate the gender pay gap.”

Time for University Grads to Get a Taste of Immigration and Globalist Displacement By James Reed

     University students tend to be liberals or to the Left and certainly as a group support mass immigration and globalisation. It is therefore fitting that they get a taste of the real world of immigration and globalisation. This report is from the US, but is still relevant to the Australian situation:  https://www.breitbart.com/immigration/2018/07/06/salaries-us-college-grad-hit-by-flood-million-foreign-visa-workers/

“College-graduate salaries are barely keeping pace with inflation, but the editor of an influential progressive website says the government should import “drastically” more foreign college-graduates for white-collar jobs in the United States. “We should drastically increase the number of such [visa-] workers who can come — if not eliminate the cap entirely,” said Matt Yglesias, editor of Vox.com Yglesias’ call for a much bigger — or even unlimited — supply of foreign college graduates comes as Americans’ salaries are just creeping ahead of inflation, according to the Conference Board, a nonprofit consulting firm. Annual growth in white-collar salaries is even lagging behind growth in blue-collar wages, according to board’s June 2018 estimate.”https://www.vox.com/2018/6/26/17500756/democrats-immigration-agenda

I Just Knew it; North Korea Back on the War Path By James Reed

The Trumpsters trumpeted too soon, as North Korea is as mean as ever, according to a rant by KCNA, the North Korean news agency:  https://www.breitbart.com/national-security/2018/07/08/world-view-north-korea-issues-vitriolic-anti-u-s-rant-collapsing-denuclearization-talks/

“It was, however, so regretful to mention what the U.S. side had shown in its attitude and stand at the first DPRK-U.S. high-level talks held on 6 and 7 July. The DPRK [North Korea] side, during the talks, put forward the constructive proposals to seek a balanced implementation of all the provisions of the Joint Statement out of its firm willingness to remain faithful to the implementation of the spirit and agreed points of the DPRK-U.S. summit meeting and talks.

Cultural Diversity to the Nth Degree: Female Genital Mutilation By Mrs Vera West

     When I grew up, I never heard about female genital mutilation. Boys were generally circumcised, but the custom was on the way out. Not so today, for female genital mutilation:  https://www.breitbart.com/london/2018/07/08/england-new-female-genital-mutilation-case-every-two-hours-experts-demand-action/

“Around 4,500 new cases of Female Genital Mutilation (FGM) were recorded in England over the last year, more than one every two hours, official data shows. Between April 2017 and March 2018, around 6,200 women and girls who visited a doctor, midwife, or other public health services in England had been exposed to the form of abuse at some point, the National Health Service (NHS) said on Thursday. Some cases had already been recorded, but 4,495 were being logged for the first time since the government made it compulsory for medical practitioners to report cases of FGM in 2015.”

Why Uncle len is Rubbing McDonald’s French Fries on His Bald Head By Uncle Len, the Shiny Dome

When I have some money left over from my mental disability pension, like most health conscious people I go into McDonalds and buy a big pot of French fries. The “French’ in the “fries,” makes me seem sophisticated and multicultural, which is better than just getting plain old greasy flies, I mean fries. Then, I don’t eat the delicacy, but smear the contents all over my bald head! I did not know why I did this until now:  http://www.ladbible.com/news/news-food-mcdonalds-fries-could-cure-baldness-according-to-new-study-20180204

“A cure for baldness may have just been found in the most unlikely of places, according to scientists in Japan - who think the answer could lie in your McDonald’s meal. Yep, believe it or not you read that right. According to the Daily Record, there’s a chemical used in McDonald’s fries that could help hair regrowth. The scientists managed to regrow hair on mice using what they’ve referred to as a ‘simple method’ using human stem cells, which generated fresh follicles capable of sprouting new hairs. Within days the mice had furry backs and scalps, and after these preliminary experiments it’s thought that the same technique could work in people. The Japanese team first had a breakthrough after they managed to produce ‘hair follicle germs’ in their lab for the first time. These are the cells that fuel follicle development, and because they’ve never been regenerated before are considered the ‘Holy Grail’ of hair loss research. Turns out the secret was to use dimethylpolysiloxane, the same chemical that’s found in McDonald’s fries - which is added for safety reasons to prevent cooking oil from foaming. Professor Junji Fukuda of Yokohama National University, said: “The key for the mass production of HFGs was a choice of substrate materials for the culture vessel. “We used oxygen-permeable dimethylpolysiloxane (PDMS) at the bottom of culture vessel, and it worked very well.”

Anarcho-Tyranny in Action By Charles Taylor

     The progressives in America, and Australia too for that matter, claim be, well, progressive, cool and with it,  being morally superior. But, are they really?  https://thenationalsentinel.com/2018/07/08/proof-that-democrats-are-now-party-of-child-trafficking-and-once-again-slavery/?mc_cid=20d34cc336&mc_eid=d825f704ed

“It’s come to this in today’s Democratic Party: Supporters who knowingly back the protection of child sex traffickers as long as they are in our country illegally and the Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) agency is involved in any way. Earlier this week in Oakland — where Mayor Libby Schaff tipped off illegal alien criminals earlier this year to an impending raid by Immigration and Customs Enforcement agents — ICE and the local police department were executing a raid on suspected child sex traffickers when a crowd of angry white liberals assembled to protest — before they had a single solitary clue what was even going on. A local news report noted:“We love our neighbors.” They also wrote with chalk on the ground saying, “OPD is a disgrace.” They were thinking this was an immigration investigation because Homeland Security was out here but we just word from Oakland police that this was, in fact, a federal criminal search warrant executed in connection with human sex trafficking of juveniles right here in the 700 block of 27th street.”

Old People are Racists! By Brian Simpson

     The latest wisdom from the psychologists is that old people are racists:  http://www.dailymail.co.uk/sciencetech/article-5921739/Older-people-really-racist-Prejudices-grow-feel-anxious-death.html

“Older people are more racist – but it’s not because they are ‘from a different time’. We become more prejudiced as we age because we feel increasingly insecure and anxious about death, psychologists claim.Scientists said hating a group can bring a sense of belonging and identity to those facing their own mortality because they are able to share that prejudice with others.

Slave Master Soros By Richard Miller

     It is good to see hard-hitting criticisms being made of globalist such as George Soros, whose goal is to flood the West with the Third World, for reasons which lie behind the luggage bags under his eyes:  https://www.breitbart.com/london/2018/07/07/salvini-soros-wants-fill-italy-migrants-like-slaves/

“Italy’s deputy prime minister and minister of the interior Matteo Salvini has infuriated billionaire plutocrat George Soros, claiming the financier wants to flood Europe with migrant “slaves”. The Lega (League) leader, who has surged in popularity since coming to office as head of one half of Italy’s new populist coalition government, made the comments in an interview on the In Onda television programme. Salvini accused the convicted insider trader of financing the so-called civil society NGOs which have been racing the Libyan Coast Guard to pick up illegal migrants from smuggler boats a few miles off the North African coast, in order to ferry them to distant European ports.”

After Socialism: Then What? By Charles Taylor

     So, if the “refugees” are all allowed in, and open borders are created, if everyone becomes fluid in their sexuality, and all dead white men literature removed from the  child care centres known as universities – then what?

Vaccination Tyranny By Mrs Vera West

     We did not hear much about this from our local mainstream media, but fortunately the slightly freer alternative press in America picked up this story: that the no jab no pay, is now no jab, you pay:    https://www.zerohedge.com/news/2018-07-07/australia-will-now-fine-parents-twice-month-if-they-dont-vaccinate-their-kids

“Australia’s “No Jab, No Pay” policy just got a little stronger, or at least more insistent. Under the previous policy, parents who did not keep their children up to date on vaccinations would miss out on a one-time, end-of-the-year tax benefit called Family Tax Benefit Part A, valued at AU$737. Under the updated policy, those same parents will instead lose AU$28 every two weeks while their child is not up to date. Australia’s Minister for Social Services, Dan Tehan, said in a statement: Immunization is the safest way to protect children from vaccine-preventable diseases. Parents who don’t immunize their children are putting their own kids at risk as well as the children of other people.” The expanded No Jab, No Pay policy went into effect on July 1, 2018. While parents will miss out on approximately the same amount of money in the end, the updated policy serves as a more “constant reminder” that the government of Australia wants all children vaccinated, according to Tehan.

The Magic of Sea Weed By Mrs Vera West

     Many good things come from the sea, and sea weed, of various types, may hold the key to holding back dementia:  https://www.naturalnews.com/2018-07-07-seaweed-prevents-parkinsons-disease-according-to-new-study.html

“Research has shown that certain seaweeds have the potential to prevent the onset of Parkinson’s disease. The study, published in BMC Complementary and Alternative Medicine, looked at the ability of antioxidant-rich seaweeds to protect brain cells from the neurotoxin 6-hydroxydopamine (6-OHDA, also known as oxidopamine), a chemical used to simulate Parkinson’s disease. In the study, researchers from the Polytechnic Institute of Leiria in Portugal tested this theory using the human neuroblastoma cell line SH-SY5Y, including its associated intracellular signaling pathways, and conducted an MTT assay to determine cell viability. In addition, the group assessed the intracellular signaling pathways hydrogen peroxide (H2O2) production, changes in the mitochondrial membrane potential, and Caspase-3 activity. These parameters determine how healthy the SH-SY5Y cells are. Changes in these parameters affect cell viability.

Letter to The Editor - Concerning Brexit. The whole scenario reminds us that we, too, have a real problem of securing genuine representation of the popular will in our own parliament

To The Australian (10/07/2018)         It indeed looks as though the UK government is seeking "to reverse the meaning of the popular vote to leave the EU" ("Corbyn lurks as chaos strikes Tories", 10/7). Ever since former PM David Cameron stated, immediately upon resigning after the Brexit vote, that Theresa May was the person he recommended to take over leadership of the Conservative Party, many of us supporters of Brexit have feared that she would undermine the Brexit project and betray the popular mandate (52%) for leaving the EU.

     The fact that other nations, such as France and Ireland, who initially voted in plebiscites to leave the EU, were forced to hold second referendums which reversed the previous decisions, increases our conviction. The resignation letter of David Davis touches on two vital points: the taking back of sovereignty and the return to national control of the law and legislation. The difficulty the British people are experiencing in trying to get the "hard" (that is, firm) Brexit they want is that sinister but financially powerful interests are aiming to sink the project. The whole scenario reminds us that we, too, have a real problem of securing genuine representation of the popular will in our own parliament.  Nigel Jackson, Belgrave, Vic

Letter To the Editor - A truly honourable British parliament would by now have implemented a 'hard' (that is, firm and authentic) Brexit

To The Age (11/07/2018)         Your editorial on Britain and the UK ('May walks tightrope amid Brexit chaos', 11/7) correctly identifies a major aspect of the Brexit controversy: 'the electorate is pitted against its own representatives.' It was always doubtful that Theresa May, no matter what declarations she made, would lead in the enactment of a resumption of British sovereign independence. She was a 'remain' advocate in 2016 and she was the recommended successor for leadership of the Conservative Party by outgoing PM David Cameron, also a 'remain' man.

     A truly honourable British parliament would by now have implemented a 'hard' (that is, firm and authentic) Brexit. That it has not happened calls into question the integrity of that institution and is an affront to genuine democracy. Huge numbers of 'little people' and 'ordinary Britons' made a supreme effort in 2016 and overcame a largely biased press and a campaign enjoying superior financial and institutional resources. It will, alas, be very hard for them to succeed a second time; and in the meanwhile May's 'soft' (pseudo) Brexit bleeds their confidence and energies. It's a sad story.  Nigel Jackson, Belgrave, Vic

Suing the Globalists By Ian Wilson LL.B

     Nearing retirement, I am as cranky as ever, but still delight in the occasional juicy legal story, like when globalists get sued:  https://www.thegatewaypundit.com/2018/07/exclusive-german-opposition-party-files-charges-against-seven-ngos-for-human-trafficking-including-doctors-without-borders/

“The Alternative for Germany (AfD) has filed criminal charges against seven German NGO’s for human trafficking — including Doctors Without Borders. The groups being charged are Against SOS Mediterranee, Sea-Watch, Doctors without Borders Germany, Save The Children Germany, Jugend Rettet (all Berlin), Mission Lifeline (Dresden) and Sea-Eye (Regensburg). The controversial NGOs have come under scrutiny lately for their efforts picking up illegal immigrants off the coast of Libya under the pretense they are “being rescued from drowning” and bringing them to Europe. The Italian government recently announced that they are closing their ports to these “humanitarian” ships in an effort to stop the illegal migration. Malta has since impounded multiple Sea-Watch vessels that are sponsored by the Lutheran Church in Germany using taxpayer funds.”
