The Coming Collapse of New Zealand By Bruce Bennett

     As a kiwi migrant to Oz, I am still sad to see New Zealand, transferred into a socialist cesspool, being unable to even feed its people. Wearing head coverings will not solve this crisis:

“New Zealand's government is coming under increasing political pressure to raise welfare payments, echoing a similar debate in Australia. The surging cost of living has exposed inequalities in New Zealand at a time when the local economy is doing well. Growth rates are well above Australia's and the OECD average. The Kiwi economy is close to full employment, with unemployment rates at an 11-year low of 3.9 per cent. Yet more are being left behind, with surging numbers of people sleeping rough and applying for hardship grants. Figures from the Ministry of Social Development reveal the dark side of New Zealand's have-and-have-not society. This winter, 29,000 emergency housing grants were made - doubling last year's tally - at a cost of NZ$41 million ($38 million).”

The Great American Coup By Charles Taylor

     What is evolving in the US with the Democrats frantically searching for anything to nail President Trump, is nothing short of a political coup; even sensible observers from the Left, such as James Howard Kunstler see this, and appreciate its dangers:
  https://usawatchdog.com/msm-co-conspirators-with-deep-state-treason-james-howard-kunstler/

“Renowned author and journalist James Howard Kunstler thinks what has been happening for the last few years with the mainstream media’s coverage of President Trump borders on criminal activity. Kunstler explains, “What I am waiting for is if and when indictments come down from Mr. Barr and Mr. Durham.  I am wondering whether the editors and publishers of the Washington Post and New York Times and the producers at CNN and MSNBC are going to be named as unindicted co-conspirators in this effort to gaslight the country and really stage a coup to remove the President and to nullify the 2016 election. I say this as someone who is not necessarily a Trump supporter. I didn’t vote for the guy. I am not a cheerleader for the guy, but basically, I think the behavior of his antagonists has been much worse and much more dangerous for the nation and the American project as a long term matter.  I really need to see some action to hold people responsible for the acts they have committed. . . . I am not an attorney, and I have never worked for the Department of Justice, but it seems to me that by naming the publishers and editors of these companies as unindicted co-conspirators, that allows you to avoid the appearance of trying to shut down the press because you are not going to put them in jail, but you are going  to put them in disrepute. That may prompt their boards of directors to fire a few people and maybe change the way they do business at these places.”

China; the Third Reich of the 21st Century By James Reed

     China is intensely nationalist, and definitely socialist, so, doesn’t that make it a form of national, or nationalist, socialism? Some go further, seeing China as the Third Reich of the West, and that is a Chinese opinion too, note that Ms Sensitive Anti-Racist thought police womyn.
  https://saraacarter.com/chang-china-is-the-third-reich-of-the-21st-century/

“Scholar Gordan Chang warns that the United States must ultimately “disengage from China” on all fronts if it is to maintain its status as a global superpower or risk China’s massive potential to change the geopolitical structure of the world. Chang, who just returned from Japan, Hong Kong and South Korea, spoke on The Sara Carter Show where he described the current state of Beijing and the authoritarian government’s influence across the globe. “This is the Third Reich in the 21st century,” said Chang. China’s policy “is incompatibility with our system. We are unfortunately going to have to reverse course and disengage from China to protect ourselves – to reduce our vulnerability to an extremely dangerous actor.” This reporter was recently in Japan and South Korea with Chang and other experts who attended the international CPAC conventions. It is an international effort to connect with foreign allies who are battling increased pressure by socialist and leftist leaders bent on targeting open markets, democracy and independence. “What we have to do ultimately is to disengage from China to get our companies out of China, to get China out of the United States because we cannot live with this militant Communist superstate that takes the position that China is the world’s only sovereign state,” said Chang. He noted that the Chinese government sees the U.S. as  basically subjects of Beijing’s expansion and that the communist government believes “Americans must acknowledge Chinese sovereignty and obey them.”

Going Half Way Round the World …the Wrong Way! By James Reed

     I sometimes feel sorry for young climate change princess Greta. You see, she has a good heart, although it is in the wrong place, but seems to be falling apart, as would anyone that age thrust up into the spotlight of insane climate politics:
  https://www.zerohedge.com/political/greta-thunberg-appeals-help-after-traveling-halfway-around-world-wrong-way

“Autistic environmentalist Greta Thunberg has appealed for help after traveling halfway around the world "the wrong way" because the United Nations moved its global climate meeting from Chile to Spain. "As #COP25 has officially been moved from Santiago to Madrid I'll need some help," tweeted Thunberg, "Now I need to find a way to cross the Atlantic in November... If anyone could help me find transport I would be so grateful." Thunberg then appeared to acknowledge her truly first world problem, tweeting "This of course no problem. People are suffering all around the world, and I’m fine whatever I do and wherever I am."”

Totalitarian Liberalism, Multicultural Fascism By Richard Miller

     How best to describe the states of the modern West, which like some zombie-infection works to destroy everything that traditional society fought, bled and died to create? Dissent Right figure Greg Johnson has been arrested attending the Scandza Forum conference on human biodiversity, presumably for being a “terrorist,” even though perhaps no-one from the Dissent Right has fallen over themselves to reject the violence option:
  https://www.counter-currents.com/2019/11/greg-johnson-arrested-in-norway-for-thoughtcrime/

“Greg Johnson was scheduled to speak at the Scandza Forum conference in Oslo, Norway today. Over the last few days, the Norwegian antifa were on a social media campaign against Scandza and Greg in particular, claiming that he supports terrorism and was therefore a threat — ludicrous given Greg’s many diatribes against terrorism. Regardless, word about this apparently got to the Norwegian authorities, and he was arrested this morning before the conference on national security grounds. The police said that Greg was being deported, but he’s been held incommunicado since then, so we don’t know where he is now. Undoubtedly they will simply detain him until they can get him on a flight out of the country. This is the same routine that Jared Taylor and other thought criminals have been through before. The conference itself is proceeding and none of the other speakers or attendees were detained. Below is a statement that Greg wrote in connection with the accusations against him before his arrest.

Sociology as Sorcery By Chris Knight

     Having bombed at philosophy at university, in a low-ranking US asylum, I, with the lack of wisdom of youth, decided to study sociology. I soon found that the sociology of the 1980s was just various forms of Marxism warmed up. Later, postmodernism and a whole range of crazy French philosophy, from people like Derrida, soaked into the discipline, which now is beyond any chance of reform. These articles give some overview of the basics, but I think the situation is much worse, with every politically correct idea you can imagine radiating from this discipline. There is simply no opposition to this in the discipline at all, complete intellectual totalitarianism.
  https://www.theoccidentalobserver.net/2019/10/31/sociology-as-religion-part-1/
  https://www.theoccidentalobserver.net/2019/11/01/sociology-as-religion-part-2/

     So crazy has contemporary sociology become that a trio of academics, mainly from other disciplines, such as philosophy, set out to write a series of “hoax” papers on subjects such as dog rape in parks, and the “conceptual penis.” We need not go into fine detail here, but these papers all got published in postmodern sociology journals, but were later exposed as “hoaxes.” The big issue for the academics was the ethics of submitting such papers, but the real issue for people in the real world, is that the papers got accepted, and thus are examples of the sort of nonsense that sociology engages in; are the papers really “hoaxes,” when the entire discipline lacks any sort of objectivity, and anything politically correct, goes? But sociology is nonsense with a point, because the goal is always to further the culture of critique, deconstruction and thrashing of  … us, we the white deplorables who are destroyed at taxpayers’ expense.

Primary Principles. by David Smith

     The quote from Sir Samuel Wadham (either above or below) is a statement of the primary importance of agriculture and farming to nations and peoples as a whole. Whilst I take the point he is making about farming being a biological activity rather than industrial activity, I believe it was given the term primary industry to show its primacy over all other forms of industry, primary meaning first in importance or original, and also, that from which all other [forms of industry] rely on and are derived from.

     To be a viable nation state requires first and foremost that we be able to independently sustain ourselves with the necessities of life, food and clothing. This is the reason so many men were told in 1939-45, you cannot go to war, you are an essential industry for the war effort here at home. This included those from both primary and secondary industries. Essential; of primary importance once again.

Want More Proof of the Great Replacement? By Charles Taylor

     Well, whites living without being replaced by minorities are just downright boring, so every white space must be filled:
  https://www.breitbart.com/politics/2019/10/31/ny-times-refugees-needed-to-fill-void-of-cultural-diversity-in-white-towns/

“More refugees must be resettled across the United States to fill a “void of cultural diversity” in towns that are made up of a majority of white Americans, a New York Times report states. As President Trump is set to lower refugee admissions for the third year, keeping his 2016 campaign promise to significantly reform the program after almost four decades, the New York Times published a report this week detailing how Congolese refugees already living in the U.S. are looking to bring their foreign relatives to the country through the refugee resettlement program. Those who support expanding refugee resettlement, the New York Times reports, say doing so is necessary for bringing “cultural diversity” to majority-white American towns like Missoula, Montana, which is more than 89 percent white and three percent Hispanic.
The New York Times reports:

This is Our Shame By Mrs Vera West

     This is a very upsetting item, that shows that Australia is not immune from the sickness and degeneracy that is gripping the rest of the West, especially Sweden. This brutal, shocking murder puts Australia in a terrible light, internationally.
  https://www.theaustralian.com.au/nation/aiia-maasarwes-killer-codey-herrmann-to-learn-his-fate/news-story/ca5ef154e25b206dfe7a0792f3762ad8?utm_source=The%20Australian&utm_medium=email&utm_campaign=editorial&utm_content=TodaySHeadlines

“The devastated father of Aiia Maasarwe says the government should do more to protect women after the international student’s killer was sentenced to a minimum term of 30 years. Supreme Court Justice Elizabeth Hollingworth said Codey Herrmann, 21, “showed utter contempt” for the dignity of Maasarwe when he raped and murdered her in the northern Melbourne suburb of Bundoora in January this year. Saeed Maasarwe, the father of the slain 21-year-old student, issued a message to the Australian government after Herrmann was sentenced to 36 years with a 30 year non-parole period at Victoria’s Supreme Court on Tuesday. “[I’m] sending a message to the Australian government … and all the departments,” he said through tears. “I wish and I hope they will care more for the people [so] they can go back home to their families safe.” Aiia Maasarwe was heading home after attending a comedy night with friends when Herrmann attacked her as she got off a tram near La Trobe university where she was studying. As she spoke to her Israeli-based sister Ruba on the phone, Herrmann beat her four times with a metal pole before dragging her behind a garden bed and raping her. He inflicted at least nine more blows to her head, fracturing her skull, before coating her with WD-40 and setting her alight.”

Why Labor Sinks (Hint: Because it is Rotten to the Core) By Peter West

     The Labor Party was taken over by the socialist Left pretty early in the scheme of things, once being the white man’s party, helping to build the white Australia policy, a policy that today China and Japan have the yellow equivalent of, and prosper with. Even though many Aussies died fighting the Nazis, they supported the white Australia policy, wanting a homogeneous homeland, and by contemporary Left standards, are racists. But multiculturalism was implemented in the 1947 post WW II immigration programme by Arthur C., then this quickly morphed into Asianisation, and now, the equally trendy, part of China thesis. Along the way, we went from sensible reforms about women’s rights, to crazy reforms that have helped destroy the family. Imagine what the Australians of 1901 would think about abortion on demand, transgenderism etc. etc. Manhood, the sort that built the country is under attack, and missing out of action. I would have liked the elites to have had the balls to have come out with all of this back in 1901 and then it would have been interesting to see how things would have gone. Anyway, the following remarks are  interesting, although I would go much further than the sentiments expressed:
  https://www.theaustralian.com.au/commentary/its-time-for-labor-to-become-a-broad-church/news-story/55f60f7fa17419215ace829b738b1413

“Over a generation, the Labor Party has been transformed by its embrace of progressive ideology. It is now a fusion of middle-class, tertiary-educated, progressive ideologues and old-fashioned social democrats tied to a union movement devoid of industrial power. The problem for Labor is that progressive ideology is electoral poison. Its purpose is to subvert the values of nation and society and elevate those of group identity and individual self-realisation or narcissism. This is not the Labor way. While it is becoming the gospel of elites in the education, media and corporate world, it is the source of profound distrust among many “forgotten” or “quiet” Australians. How else to interpret the irrefutable voting statistics? The more progressive Labor gets, the more its primary vote sinks. This is the reality confronting Labor. Progressivism works for single-issue causes and the infiltration of institutions. But it hasn’t worked for a Labor Party that needs half the two-party-preferred vote in a country becoming more culturally fragmented.

How Can Small Businesses Survive This? By James Reed

     Not all bad things from the law come from deliberate attempts to do evil. Sometimes there are situations of genuine harm, but politicians react by firing off more laws, when most often the problems are complex social problems that will not be solved just by further red tape. Here is an example:
  https://www.theaustralian.com.au/nation/politics/bosses-in-frame-for-workers-suicides-in-victoria/news-story/c8a3f4edf0263fe60221341c680d3be6?utm_source=The%20Australian&utm_medium=email&utm_campaign=editorial&utm_content=TodaySHeadlines

“Negligent bosses could face up to 20 years in jail or multi-million-dollar fines over the suicide of their employees under workplace manslaughter laws proposed by the Victorian government. Under the tough new laws, an employer could be held liable if a worker committed suicide as a result of sustained workplace bullying and the employer, aware of the abuse, did not take action to reasonably guard against or respond to the conduct.
The new workplace manslaughter offence, if legislated, will apply to all workplace fatalities, including those resulting from mental as well as physical injuries. Victorian Attorney-General Jill Hennessy said an employer could face liability for a suicide where an employee's mental health had been “brutalised” at work, and the employer had rejected the worker's requests for assistance. She said the criminal standard of negligence would have to be met and causation established. “The standard is very high because the penalty is very high,” she said, adding the offence would not be easy to prove. Under the proposed legislation, a suicide found to be a direct result of negligent workplace practices and policies that substantially contribute to the death could constitute workplace manslaughter. Victorian Trades Hall Council secretary Luke Hilakari said 30 workers died each year in Victoria at work and tens of thousands were injured annually. “As long as every worker comes home from work, no boss needs to be jailed,’’ he said. “Until that happens, maybe there does need to be some bosses who go to jail and that will be the lesson.”

Time for a Birds and Bees Talk by Trump By Chris Knight

     The US Democrats are pushing ahead with the proposed impeachment of President Donald Trump, just because they can. It does not matter about truth and justice, this is politics, and even during the 2016 election, they were speculating about how to sink Trump if he got elected. These are the sort of abominations we are dealing with here:
  https://vdare.com/articles/vdare-com-s-peter-brimelow-on-impeachment-democrats-huff-and-puff-yawn-wake-up-when-senate-trial-begins-then-lock-and-load

“Nevertheless, incredibly, the Democrats have gone on to an impeachment investigation against Trump anyway, albeit on an entirely unrelated charge. The reason for this, as I predicted at the 2017 American Renaissance conference: because they can. Impeachment, in the end, is like a vote of No Confidence in a Parliamentary system. The Democrats have the majority in the House. So they will impeach. In fact, they were discussing impeachment before Trump was even nominated.[Donald Trump Impeachment: How Quickly Could It Happen?, by Darren Samuelsohn, POLITICO Magazine, April 17, 2016] It’s not a question of whether some “crime” has been committed. Bill Clinton clearly perjured himself (which is why his Arkansas law license was quietly suspended). But Senate Democrats did not vote to convict him— because impeachment is a political determination. Right now, the Democrats and their Main Stream Media auxiliaries, like the Big Bad Wolf, are huffing and puffing in attempt to blow America’s house down—to break the nerve of the Congressional GOP and even the White House, as they did during Watergate.

Maleficent; Masters of Evil By Chris Knight

     The movie Maleficent: Mistresses of Evil (2019) is out, a much darker version of the Sleeping Beauty genre, starring Angelia Jolie, who still looks ok, post Brad Pitt, at least to me. That is relevant, because looking at the film posters, as well as Breitbart News, I compared the Democrat players in the Trump impeachment, with the wicked witches and wizards of these sorts of movies. My research result is that the real political players in our world radiate a physical ugliness that surpasses movie villains. In fact, the globalist financial players take it to an entirely new level and operate at a level of criminal psychopathology far beyond the cartoonish villains in pre-Daniel Craig Bond movies. Physical ugliness is a marker of spiritual ugliness. No names here; it applies to most of them. Looking at their faces makes me want to vomit; how about you? There is something inhuman here. How do we make sense of this level of evil? What hypothesis explains this parsimoniously?

     I believe that we are really ruled not by human beings, for these creatures are far too evil to be in any way human, but by demons from hell, hiding in the decaying shells of once-human bodies. Think about it, especially over a few stiff whiskeys and it will make sense. Too much sense … And, speaking of hell:

Climate Change Mania as a Corporate Scam By James Reed

     I have been sawing, no, saying, this, but who takes notice of me, a decaying circus clown, in clown world? But wait, as John the Lemmon said, I am not the only one:
  https://www.breitbart.com/europe/2019/10/31/corbyns-brother-trashes-open-borders-brands-extinction-rebellion-soros-funded-globalist-scam/

“Piers Corbyn, Labour leader Jeremy Corbyn’s Brexiteer climate-sceptic elder brother, has lambasted Extinction Rebellion as a Soros-funded, EU- and UN-backed scam to transfer money from ordinary people to corporations.
Speaking to YouTube personality and former UKIP candidate Carl ‘Sargon of Akkad’ Benjamin, the physicist, weather forecaster, and former Labour councillor warned viewers that “climate policy is there to control you, not climate”. “The political origin of [Extinction Rebellion] is the globalist supernationals, the mega-rich. They’re funded by George Soros, among others, he spent 24 million dollars on the group which set up the so-called climate strike,” Corbyn alleged. “They are orchestrated by the mainstream media and tolerated deliberately by all the governments in the world, just about, bar very few,” he continued. “If you and I were to have a demonstration about Yemen, the war and arms, and so forth, we would be swept off the street in half an hour, right?” he told Benjamin. “Or if the miners’ strike had have tried to occupy London like they did, they would have had the horses against them straight away, they’d be swept away — so [Extinction Rebellion] are completely tolerated by the powers that be,” he added.”

Just How Weird Are Smarts? By Brian Simpson

State Scientific Facts (Contrary to Globalist Climate Change Mania and Get Sacked from the Modern University By James Reed

     I keep coming up against the topic of polar bears. I must admit that after research, my meat-eating desire for them has paled, but they are still interesting fellows. Anything that could bite your head off with one chomp has got to be interesting. Anyway:
  https://www.washingtontimes.com/news/2019/oct/20/susan-crockford-fired-after-finding-polar-bears-th/

“Nobody has done more to sink the claim that climate change is endangering polar bears than zoologist Susan Crockford — and she may have paid for it with her job. After 15 years as an adjunct assistant professor, Ms. Crockford said the University of Victoria rejected without explanation in May her renewal application, despite her high profile as a speaker and author stemming from her widely cited research on polar bears and dog domestication. Ms. Crockford accused officials at the Canadian university of bowing to “outside pressure,” the result of her research showing that polar bear populations are stable and even thriving, not plummeting as a result of shrinking Arctic sea ice, defying claims of the climate change movement. Her dismissal, which she announced Wednesday in a post on her Polar Bear Science blog, has spurred alarm over the implications for academic freedom and the rise of the “cancel culture” for professors and scientists who challenge climate catastrophe predictions. “When push came to shove, UVic threw me under the bus rather than stand up for my academic freedom,” said Ms. Crockford, who earned a Ph.D. in interdisciplinary studies, specifically biology and anthropology, in 2004.

Letter to The Editor - We can still celebrate Aboriginal history without weakening the political structure of the nation

To The Age         All proposals for Aboriginal constitutional recognition, including treaty-making and a "voice" to or in Parliament, are against the interests of Australians generally - and, ironically, that includes Aboriginals. So your advocacy of such recognition ("'Voice' belongs in our constitution", 4/11), though well-meaning, is mistaken.  Strategic interests and internal security demand that we should maintain this continent as a single nation. Unity means strength. We can still celebrate Aboriginal history and culture, and pay respect to those Australians having Aboriginal ancestry, without weakening the political structure of the nation.

The “Doomer” Not “Zoomer” Generation By James Reed

     You have to hand it to climate change princess Greta, she has honour and conviction. Thus, she has turned down a great big wad of cash as a prize for whatever it is she does. Why, if it was me, I would have gone out and brought a giant freezer to fill with masses of red meat, and a nice carbon-producing heater to burn all matter of stuff for the next ice age Melbournian winter.
  https://www.breitbart.com/politics/2019/10/30/climate-kid-greta-thunberg-shames-grown-ups-again-rejects-52k-environmental-award/

     Anyway, as the Australian League of Rights are the unsung heroes in leading many trends in fashion and culture, and I am proudly leading the charge, with Uncle Len following up the rear, so to speak.  Let it go down in the record that the so-called “zoomer” generation should now be know as “doomers” instead, given the ease with which everyone has accepted that the planet only has 12 years, or is it now 11 years (?) left to kick on. Well done!

Whites, Even if Brown, are White Racists in the New Inquisition! By Chris Knight

     Our enemies at The New York Times are at it again. Two Indian boys abuse African American girls and this is classified as white racism, yes, WHITE:
  https://www.infowars.com/new-york-times-columnist-blames-whiteness-for-two-indian-boys-racially-abusing-black-girls-in-new-jersey/

“A New York Times columnist blamed “whiteness” for an alleged racist attack where two Indian students assaulted an African-American girl at a high school football game in New Jersey. Yes, really. The two 17-year-old Indian boys allegedly used racial slurs against a group of African-American girls and urinated on one during the game at Lawrence High School last Friday night. Who’s to blame for the attack? White people, of course. That’s according to New York Times columnist Nell Irvin Painter, who says that the Indian boys were “enacting American whiteness through anti-black assault in a very traditional way.” “In doing so, the assailants are demonstrating how race is a social construct that people make through their actions. They show race in the making, and show how race is something we perform, not just something we are in our blood or in the color of our skin,” she added. How convenient. By making race a “social construct,” the racist actions of non-white people can still be blamed on white people. Incredible. “In the New Jersey incident, the heritage or skin color of the boys suspected of the assault doesn’t matter,” writes Painter. “What matters is that they were participating in this pattern and thus enacting whiteness in a very traditional way.” Her entire argument appears to stem from her claim that a football game is a “white space” and therefore white people are to blame for anything that happens there.”

Eating Dogs? By James Reed

     If one eats dog meat, while the meat is hot, does that count as a “hot dog”? Since the environmentalists are moving on banning meat eating, for us, I have become obsessed with meat eating. Why, just the other day, I penned an article which I dimly remember, where I speculated about the taste of polar bear! That is how desperate a man can be for meat, glorious meat. And, I am not the only one suffering from meat angst. Just ask the Chinese if you please, who are in the pig apocalypse at the moment:
  https://www.wnd.com/2019/10/china-turning-dog-meat-pork-prices-skyrocket/?utm_source=facebook&utm_content=2019-10-25&fbclid=IwAR1fmEbCAwR2zkMUkbHg7nmPGiB2DZTt7XGC_0ZcXxJ03sov3SGfZJo8Q-o

“As the price of pork, the most popular meat in China, continues to skyrocket in the wake of a livestock epidemic, citizens of the communist nation are turning to dog meat as a substitute. Pork prices have shot up 69 percent thanks to the market-killing effects of African swine fever, putting the meat out of reach for many Chinese. As the South China Morning Post reports, consumers with a tight budget are choosing cheaper alternatives to pork. Restaurants are now suggesting patrons choose dog meat, also referred to as "fragrant meat" in China and "sweet meat" in nearby North Korea, to keep the price of dishes down. Dog, along with rabbit, is also becoming more common in markets as having pork makes shoppers a target of hungry thieves, according to the SCMP. In one market, the only cut of hog cheaper than rabbit is a leg bone without a single scrap of meat attached. Dogs and rabbits, which both reproduce in great numbers and are relatively hardy, have become some of the cheapest meats available to residents of China. While eating dog meat is considered taboo in much of the Western world, China and other countries have a long history of dining on man's best friend.”
