More on Sex Egalitarianism By Mrs Vera West

     If the gender/sex egalitarianism idea as true, then why the need to smash any academic opposing it?

“The European particle physics research centre Cern has cut ties with the scientist who said that women were less able at physics than men. Cern has decided not to extend Professor Alessandro Strumia’s status of guest professor. The decision follows an investigation into comments, first reported by BBC News, made by Prof Strumia at a Cern workshop on gender equality. Prof Strumia told BBC News that he stood by his remarks. "Some people hated hearing about higher male variance: this idea comes from Darwin, like other offensive ideas that got observational support," he told BBC News. "Science is not about being offended when facts challenge ideas held as sacred". He added that he believed that he had not been fairly treated. "For months, Cern kept 'investigating' if my 30-minute talk might have violated Cern rules [requiring an] 'obligation to exercise reserve and tact in expressing personal opinions and communication to the public'," Prof Strumia said. "In such a case, they would have opened some procedure, where I would have been able [to defend] myself. This never happened." Last September, Professor Strumia stated that “physics was invented and built by men, it's not by invitation" at a presentation at the Cern the workshop.

Welcome to Australia’s Recession; Don’t Expect Immigration to be Reduced By James Reed

     Yep, Australia is now in recession, so when this happens the elites like to really fry us, and turn up the immigration throttle to full power:

“Australia has fallen into what is known as a “per capita recession.”  That means the country is relying solely on population growth to propel its economy.  All this is happening as Nigeria follows the same path to becoming Venezuela. The dollar dropped sharply to a two-month low of $0.70 by midday as economists slashed their predictions for official interest rates to reach a record low of 1 percent by September, according to The Sydney Morning Herald. The per capita recession is raising questions about the government’s management of the economy ahead of the federal elections. Prime Minister Scott Morrison has repeatedly said economic growth will be weaker under Labor, but the final two results of this term of government show the Coalition will lead Australia back to the polls struggling to lift a slowing economy.  Many economic experts believe that this next global recession will allow the public to open their eyes about the reality of government and central banks: that they work together to enslave the masses while lining politicians’ pockets with money stolen from the slaves (general population.) On top of this potential nightmare scenario is the fact that governments around the world comprising the largest economies have nearly all become debtor nations that are one economic calamity away from global collapse. As noted by Robert Gore at The Burning Platform blog, France’s Yellow Vest protesters may have inadvertently hit upon a way to bring about the collapse of the fiat money and debt system that is sustaining the very governments which increasingly suppress the people they are supposed to serve. -JD Heyes, Natural News

Letter to The Editor - One wonders how many of the student protesters fully understand the perceived problem of climate change

     On a recent radio “Kids Quiz” a lad, probably in late primary school,  was asked “What is a quarter of 100”?  He had some difficulty and the radio host attempted to help by saying, “50 is half of a hundred, so what would 25 be”?  Still the lad was unable to answer even though he possessed other knowledge. Thinking of the student protest over climate change and the fact that water vapour makes up the vast amount of greenhouse gas and further, that carbon dioxide contributes a very minor 1 or 2 percent of greenhouse gas, one wonders how many of the student protesters fully understand the perceived problem. For those who understand the small proportion of carbon dioxide in greenhouse gas, I wonder whether they would still be concerned when they know every human and animal expels carbon dioxide with every breath which leaves a miniscule amount of carbon dioxide attributable to industrial emissions. I hope most students use their maths to gain a deeper understanding.  Ken Grundy, Naracoorte, SA

Letter to The Editor - It will take great nerve now to keep Australia on a truly democratic path

To The Age         It may well be that now "the prospect of a delayed, even cancelled Brexit" has become the likely result of the immense struggle going on over the constitutional future of the UK ("Parliament says 'bollocks' to May's Brexit bid", 14/3); but there has been little discussion out here of the profound effect on our own national psyche of what looks like a successful sabotage by a political elite of the 52% popular decision in the 2016 referendum in favour of departure from the EU. Australians generally have hitherto looked up to "the mother country" as a bastion of liberty standing as an encouragement to our own attempt to build a nation of similar ideals here. Suddenly we see it as just another more-or-less corrupt oligarchy among the masses around the world. It will take great nerve now to keep Australia on a truly democratic path.  Nigel Jackson, Belgrave, Vic

Letter to The Editor - Brexit could easily have been designed and implemented by now

To The Australian        The credibility of Britain as a democracy is in tatters, but not because "Mrs May's proposed deal deserved better than a death knell in the Commons" ("Crunch time for Brexit havoc", 14/3). It is because an unscrupulous political elite has worked ever since the referendum result to frustrate the decision to leave the EU. Mrs May's deal has long been fully exposed as bogus; and now the "Remain" majority in Parliament are set to make a "no deal" exit impossible. Everyone knows that during the last two years a genuine Brexit could easily have been designed and implemented by now. The betrayal of Britain bids fair to see, before too long, the end of free speech, common law protections of personal liberty and the glory of the monarchy. Alas, poor Britain: "unhappy is the land that has no heroes."  Nigel Jackson, Belgrave, Vic

Pollies Not Running: The Real Reason By James Reed

     Have you noticed a lot of politicians are retiring at the moment? I have not but an email was sent to me, then I noticed. The anonymous email gave a good reason for why the rats are leaving the sinking ship of Oz:

“The real reason behind 60 Elected MPs not seeking re-election! Sixty elected members of the federal government have now reported they have made the decision not to run in the upcoming next election! It's a very high number compared to previous elections. Some of them tell us that it's for family reasons, others for their desire to serve their fellow citizens in other fields and many other great stories to make us cry for them. Besides all the tear jerking that politicians have been giving about retiring here is something else to consider. In 2015 a change in the pension for MP's ensures that the age of full retirement for an MP having served at least 6 years, will no longer be 55 years but 65 years. Thus any MP not yet 65 and who wants to benefit from the present pension scheme need only not run in the next election and thus will draw for 10 years longer a government pension of over $100,000/year.

Captain Not So Marvellous By Mrs Vera West

     My grandson went to see the new Captain Marvel movie featuring a feminist Social Justice Warrior superhero, and he went because he had a free ticket. He left after about half way through, because it was “just garbage.” Others think so too:

“The backlash against Captain Marvel has reached a boiling point ahead of Friday's premiere, after star Brie Larson slammed the number of white male movie critics reviewing her films - while others have taken issue with the feminist marketing campaign behind Marvel's "big feminist movie." The ensuing flood of complaints against both Larson and Marvel Studios resulted in a 28% drop in box office projections, while popular movie review site Rotten Tomatoes made site-wide changes, removing their "Want To See" feature from the website. Larson's "Social Justice Warrior" (SJW) supporters have branded the backlash as a classic case of misogyny; men who simply can't stand a strong female lead in a superhero movie - however this analysis falls short in light of the overwhelming popularity of Hollywood productions such as the Resident Evil, Alien and Kick Ass franchises, not to mention the Hunger Games, the Fifth Element - and of course, badass heroine Sarah Connor from the Terminator series.” They pushed the social Justice warrior stuff with Black Panther, and got that through using guilt, now they are moving on the feminist gender front:

Anti-Racists Working Their Way Down the List By Bruce Bennett

     There are Alt Right, supposedly, websites overjoyed at the recent Amazon censorship of numerous nationalist books. These people will in turn be knocked off too, because now even Dr Seuss is being regarded as “racist”:

“But a study published this month claims Dr. Seuss’s work is racist, and it joins a growing chorus of voices deeming the iconic author problematic. The study is titled “The Cat Is Out of the Bag: Orientalism, Anti-Blackness and White Supremacy in Dr. Seuss’s Children’s Books.” It is co-authored by Katie Ishizuka of the The Conscious Kid Library and Ramón Stephens, a PhD student in education at the University of California, San Diego. They describe themselves as “critical race scholar-activists.” The two interpreted the late author’s works as “dehumanizing and degrading” to “Black, Indigenous, and People of Color (BIPOC), and people from other marginalized groups (including Jewish people and Muslims),” largely because non-white characters were illustrated in stereotypical fashions, they argued.

Sanctuaries for Guns, an Endangered Species By John Steele

     Ok if they want to have sanctuaries for illegal immigrants, then and even more endangered species, guns, needs many too:

“At least 20 county sheriffs in Washington state – more than half of the state’s total – are now publicly refusing to police new gun laws. Several county governments have also passed local resolutions officially opposing enforcement of the laws. The moves may pose a significant threat to Washington’s ambitious agenda on firearms reform, and some activists say it is beginning to resemble a full-scale “constitutionalist” revolt against gun control. A growing number of sheriffs, almost all in rural counties, have publicly stated that they will not, or believe they cannot, enforce the provisions of I1639, a ballot measure passed by popular vote last November which aims to restrict access to and use of assault weapons. Their positions – outlined in written statements, local media reports, and Facebook posts – occupy varying points on a spectrum of resistance.

Amazon to Ban Every Book Ever Written! (Maybe Books Not Even Written Yet!) By Charles Taylor

     I have been following the Amazon book banning frenzy, which has involved banning white nationalist books from various places. This has been met with a “so what” from the site referenced below which says that it is Alt Right, but I don’t see much right about its celebration of any sort of book banning:

     Apparently, nothing to worry about here, of course until Big Tech knocks their works off, and shuts down their site. That would be too bad, because one does not have to agree with everything at a site to see merit. And it is not just the radicals who are being culled, for they have gone for antivaxxers’ stuff and now science books that they don’t like, as Mike Adams, apparently has said:

The Comic Book Attack on Jesus By Chris Knight

     There is apparently a comic attacking Jesus, by portraying him as fighting with a sword, beheading people. Apparently, nothing about driving the money changers out of the temple with whip though. Anyway, I saw this story with a good summary, which makes a general moral about the decline of the West:

“Joe Casey and Benjamin Marra no doubt think of themselves as cool, edgy, and courageous, unafraid to incur charges of blasphemy from furious Christians. In fact, they’re banking on those charges: “Reports say the publisher is banking on blasphemy protests to propel sales.” This is part of the West’s cultural suicide. It’s cool, edgy and courageous to hate one’s own culture, history, and civilization, and to mock and defame its central figures. But Casey and Marra are unlikely to be as courageous when it comes to a religious figure who actually did behead his enemies. Muhammad, according to his first biographer Ibn Ishaq, beheaded between 600 and 900 men of the Jewish Qurayzah tribe after the Battle of the Trench. Will Casey and Marra publish a graphic novel about Muhammad? Not on your life. Not only would that not be courageous in the eyes of their peers, it would be “hateful” and “Islamophobic,” even if it contained accurate material drawn from Islamic sources.”

The Cannabis Curriculum By James Reed

     Thanks to Mrs West for emailing me this one, which while dealing with health issues shows once more the insanity of he universities. Yes, now there are courses on dope:

“Grace DeNoya is used to getting snickers when people learn she’s majoring in marijuana. “My friends make good-natured jokes about getting a degree in weed,” said DeNoya, one of the first students in a new four-year degree program in medicinal plant chemistry at Northern Michigan University. “I say, ‘No, it’s a serious degree, a chemistry degree first and foremost. It’s hard work. Organic chemistry is a bear.’” As a green gold rush in legal marijuana and its non-drug cousin hemp spreads across North America, a growing number of colleges are adding cannabis to the curriculum to prepare graduates for careers cultivating, researching, analyzing and marketing the herb. Research shows there are high times ahead for all kinds of careers in cannabis , ranging from greenhouse and dispensary operators to edible product developers, marketing specialists, quality assurance lab directors and pharmaceutical researchers. Arcview Market Research, which focuses on cannabis industry trends, projects the industry will support 467,000 jobs by 2022. And even in states where recreational marijuana remains illegal, including New York, New Jersey and Connecticut, some colleges have launched cannabis studies programs in anticipation of legalization or to prepare students for jobs in other states.

The Philippines is Not Worth War with China By James Reed

     The president of the Philippines, Rodrigo Duterte, wants to change the name of the country to something like “Maharlika,” because of, well, imperialism, colonialism and all that jazz, as the country was named after King Philip of Spain. Ok, they want to cut ties with the West. Fine, but why should the United States therefore have to defend these fellows from China?

“As President Trump flew home from his Hanoi summit with Kim Jong Un, Mike Pompeo peeled off and flew to Manila. And there the Secretary of State made a startling declaration. Any armed attack by China on a Philippine ship or plane in the South China Sea, he told the Philippine government, will be treated as an attack on an American ship or plane, bringing a U.S. military response. “China’s island building and military activities in the South China Sea threaten your sovereignty, security and, therefore, economic livelihood, as well as that of the United States,” said Pompeo. “As the South China Sea is part of the Pacific, any armed attack on Philippine forces, aircraft or public vessels in the South China Sea will trigger mutual defense obligations under article 4 of our mutual defense treaty.”

Under Labor There will be No More Labour! Abortion Clinics on (Almost) Every Street Corner!! By Mrs Vera West

     No, not false news, only a metaphorical flourish from an increasingly exasperated old girl. But it is almost correct, as Labor, when they inevitably get in, as the sheeples turn with disgust from the Libs, will ensure that public hospitals provide free abortions. Apparently, there are not enough abortions now, and access must be made even easier than it already is:

“Public hospitals will have to consistently offer abortion services as part of commonwealth funding agreements under a federal Labor government. If it wins the upcoming election, the party would also build a new Tasmanian reproductive health hub so women don't have to travel interstate for abortions and other medical care. And it would look at making sure the contraceptive pill, long-acting removable contraceptives, and medical terminations are more widely available to Australian women. Deputy Labor leader Tanya Plibersek said every Australian woman should be able to access health services in the place and time they need them. At the moment, there is a patchwork of service provision, with some women turned away from public hospitals when they need to end a pregnancy and then not being able to access or afford to go to a private clinic, or having to travel hundreds of kilometres for care. "Choosing to terminate a pregnancy is difficult enough," Ms Plibersek said on Wednesday.””

Green New Genocide By James Reed

     Boy, do I hate environmentalists. Not the old school who loved nature and saved wildernesses, but these new socialist types, like flavour of the month US Senator Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (AOC). Her Green New Deal to deal with the myth of climate change, will involve basically dismantling the entire economy and killing all Americans, which, I suppose does achieve some reduction in carbon creation! Anyway, even the co-founder of Greenpeace has mocked her:

“Patrick Moore, the co-founder of Greenpeace who left the organization he said has been “hijacked by eco-fascists,’ weighed in on Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez’s Green New Deal resolution calling her a “pompous little twit” on social media.

Aborting to Save the World By Mrs Vera West

     In this week’s contest between journalists for the craziest politically correct libtard article of the week, my contribution is the one about the woman who had an abortion to save the world! Wow, tell that to the Africans where the average number of children a woman has, in some regions is 5, and even Billy Gates is worried about this population explosion, conspiracies aside.

“Actress-turned-activist Rose McGowan claimed that she had an abortion when she was younger so she could “change the world” instead of raising a child. “I have had an abortion and I support this message,” Rose McGowan said in a social media post about abortion. “I am not ashamed, nor should you be. That 60% of those who choose to have abortions are already mothers says a lot- they understand more than anyone. I was on birth control and it failed. I realized I could not bring a child into my world and simultaneously change the world,” she added.

Trump Finally Attacks the Universities, The Source of Almost all Evil By James Reed

     As long-term readers would know, I have been championing a campaign the close down the universities for some years now. Sometimes it seems that someone is listening. Why, I even wrote to the White House to see if President Trump would do anything, such as cut funding to starve the cancer. I did not get a reply, but maybe someone in the office got the idea and passed it on:

“Upset that conservatives continue to be silenced, banned, and even attacked on America’s increasingly Left-wing college campuses, POTUS Donald Trump said on Saturday he’s prepared to fire a financial warning shot across their bows. Speaking to a packed, enthusiastic crowd at the annual Conservative Political Action Conference in Maryland, the president said he was preparing to sign an executive order denying federal funds to any college or university that did not protect all students’ First Amendment rights to free speech. “Today I am proud to announce that I will be very soon signing an executive order requiring colleges and universities to support free speech if they want federal research dollars,” the president said after bringing Hayden Williams on stage with him, who was sucker punched by a Left-wing activist at the University of California-Berkeley last month. As reported by The National Sentinel, police at UC-Berkley arrested Zachary Greenberg, 28, about 1 p.m. Friday after a judge issued an arrest warrant for the February 19 attack on Williams, 26. Several videos of the attack show Greenberg verbally berating Williams before punching him in the face, then physically assaulting him.

The Money People Always Put Locals after Migrants By Chris Knight

     Apart from being a failure and a traitor to his election promises, President Donald Duck Trump is revealing his true agenda, much like the liberal prime ministers in Australia have constantly done, from Menzies on, and that is to swamp and demographically transform Western societies by unending mass immigration. The White Australia Policy, for example was long opposed in semi-secret by the majority of the Labor and Liberal Parties before it was abandoned by the Liberals in 1965, by stealth. Such changes do not happen over night and are the results of perfidy. That does not matter much now, since we have to move beyond the old nationalist conceptual framework of “save Australia” or conserve it, as there is little left to conserve, or will be once this battle has been done.  Here is some good US material attacking Trump’s illegal immigration mania:

“Trump’s shift from a wage-boosting legal immigration system to one that benefits corporations and their shareholders coincides with recent big business lobby influence over his White House, at the behest of advisers Jared Kushner and Brooke Rollins. As Breitbart News reported, an alliance of mostly globalist organizations and business groups have had access to the White House to discuss the national legal immigration policy. These groups include Koch Industries, the George W. Bush Center, the U.S. Chamber of Commerce, and the League of United Latin American Citizens (LULAC). Increasing legal immigration would cut the job prospects of the at least 13 million working-age Americans who are either unemployed, not in the labor force but want a job, or who are working part-time jobs but want a good-paying full-time job. Out of those 13 million Americans who are available for U.S. jobs, about 6.5 million are unemployed. Of those unemployed, close to 13 percent are American teenagers who are ready for entry-level U.S. jobs — the exact jobs that low-skilled foreign workers generally tend to take. About 1.6 million Americans are not in the labor force at all, but they want a job, including about 426,000 discouraged American workers who are demoralized by their job prospects. Also, there are 5.1 million Americans who are working part-time jobs but who want full-time jobs. More than 1.4 million of these U.S. part-time workers said they had looked for full-time jobs but could not find any.

More on the Poison of Television, the Plug in Drug By Mrs Vera West

     The lead article in this week’s On Target is by Arnie and Beata Luks on television as the opiate of the masses, and that is certainly true. In fact, I found this article which indicates that the metaphor is perhaps even more appropriate than the dynamic duo thought:

“People over-50 who watch more than three-and-a-half hours of television a day are more at risk of memory loss, research suggests. A study of more than 3,600 older adults revealed watching too many soaps, documentaries or reality shows reduces their ability to recall words by up to ten per cent. Overindulging in your favourite shows could trigger a 'cognitive stress' that leads to memory loss, the researchers claim. It may also take away from activities that keep older people sharp, such as reading or playing educational games online. The research was carried by University College London and led by Dr Daisy Fancourt, senior research associate in the department of behavioural science and health. 'There has been interest for over a decade in the effect of television viewing behaviours on cognition, but much of this literature has concentrated on children,' Dr Fancourt said. 'Much less attention has been paid to the effects of television viewing at the other end of the lifespan, despite it being hypothesised for over 25 years that watching excessive television could contribute to the development of dementia.'

Why the Globalists Love AI By Brian Simpson

     The answer, short and sweet is centralised power and control. Sure, many of us get off playing with computers, but I suppose plenty of people get off playing with chemistry sets too, but do not go to the genetic engineering level of playing Dr Frankenstein:

“The globalists have long held AI as a kind of holy grail in centralization technology. The United Nations has adopted numerous positions and even summits on the issue, including the “AI For Good” summit in Geneva. The UN insinuates that it's primary interest in AI is in regulation or observation of how it is exploited, but the UN also has clear goals to use AI to its advantage. The use of AI as a means to monitor mass data to better institute “sustainable development” is written clearly in the UN's agenda. The IMF is also in on the AI trend, holding global discussions on the uses of AI in economics as well as the effects of algorithms on economic analysis. The main source for the development of AI has long been DARPA. The military and globalist think tank dumps billions of dollars into the technology, making AI the underlying focus of most of DARPA's work. AI is not only on the globalist's radar; they are essentially spearheading the creation and promotion of it.
