The Killing Fields of Australia – Racism and Routine Ethnic Cleansing

About 100 metres from my home on the edge of the Brisbane CBD is the corner of Boundary and Brereton Streets.
On November 7, 1993, Daniel Yock, an 18-year-old Aboriginal dancer died there. Or at least he was picked up there, by police.
Daniel probably died in the back of a police wagon, like some cattle do on their way to a slaughterhouse. In any event, he was certainly dead by the time he reached the police watchhouse, just a few kilometres from the scene of his arrest.
Daniel Yock’s ‘offence’ was to sit with his friends in nearby Musgrave Park and drink alcohol.
Throughout the afternoon, police circled the block in a wagon. The boys – feeling harassed and intimated – contacted the manager of the local Aboriginal hostel they were staying at. He came down to meet the group, and they decided to head home before dark.
They were tailed by two police officers – Constables Suzette Domrow and Scott Harris – the whole way.
Constable Harris is captured on police radio recordings in the ensuing minutes before Daniel’s arrest.
‘There’s about 7 or 8 Aboriginal persons fairly, sort of giving us a few problems and calling us names. They are full of piss, we’d like some persons to come down.’

GUN CONFISCATION FAIL: LAW-ABIDING AUSSIES DEFENSELESS AGAINST 260,000 ILLEGAL GUNS

Even with possession shaming, and amid the fear and threat of prosecution, Australians have yet to give up all their guns. It is estimated nearly 300,000 guns are still on the streets in the land down under. These guns don’t belong to the law-abiding citizens either.
Australia’s anti-gun campaign and propaganda launched after a mass shooter killed 35 people in one heinous act of murder. The tragedy took place in 1996, in the city of Port Arthur. Following the crime, and in the wake of national agony, then Prime Minister John Howard moved to take back all the gun rights Australians had since the country’s founding.
Now, over twenty years later, the government of Australia is still actively seeking to root out Aussie guns, with limited success. As a method of doing so, Australia is offering amnesty to anyone who now wishes to come forward and surrender their firearms. More than 6,000 weapons have been turned in over the last month and a half. According to one source:

Lying Australian press and the Vaxxed scandal

FACT: Recently, the film Vaxxed (trailer) was shown in locations across Australia.
FACT: The film exposes horrendous and criminal scientific fraud at the US Centers for Disease Control.
FACT: Vaxxed features the 2014 public confession of William Thompson, a long-time CDC researcher.
FACT: Thompson states that he and his colleagues falsified data to make it appear that the MMR vaccine has no connection to autism, when in fact the vaccine does raise the risk of autism.
FACT: The film’s producer, Polly Tommey, came to Australia with the film and spoke with audiences at showings.
FACT: The Australian government, upon her exit from the country, canceled her visa.
Why?
Here is one version of the story, from the Australian press, about Polly Tommey and a colleague, Suzanne Humphries. Herald Sun, August 7-8: ‘…[they] entered the country on false visas…it is believed they did not declare their intentions to work…’
It is believed? By whom? Three drunks in a bar? A ghost in an attic? A paid public-relations hustler for a vaccine manufacturer?
Well, here is the actual statement of the Australian government canceling Vaxxed producer Polly Tommey’s visa. Here’s the actual statement, signed by an anonymous government official who scribbled his unreadable name at the bottom of a document issued on August 8th at 10:45 hours:
‘Ms. Tommey stated in her subclass 651 visa application that the purpose of travel to Australia was ‘business’ however there is no further details [sic] as to the business she intended to undertake. Given this visa does permit the holder to undertake business visitor activities, I give a little weight in Ms Tommey’s favor.’

‘POISONOUS ATMOSPHERE’ GRIPS MCMASTER’S NATIONAL SECURITY COUNCIL AS ACCUSATIONS FLY

Finger-pointing erupted within the National Security Council following a major leak to The Washington Post of telephone transcripts between President Donald Trump and the leaders of Mexico and Australia, The Daily Caller News Foundation’s Investigative Group has learned. And as the U. S. inches closer to war with North Korea, the White House body charged with discussing and coordinating U. S. foreign policy is engulfed in what one administration official called a ‘poisonous environment.’
Initial leak accusations from two White House officials focused on Megan Badasch, the National Security Council (NSC) deputy executive secretary, who manages the NSC’s document portal. The portal included transcripts of his discussions, which makes her one of three people with access to the leaked documents. But three senior officials within the White House say Badasch had nothing to do with the leaks, and point out that no evidence has been provided to prove that she did.
The finger-pointing is a reflection of growing divisions within the NSC under Lt. Gen. H. R. McMaster. Three current administration officials interviewed by TheDCNF blame the volatile McMaster for the atmosphere and for a growing demoralization among the staff. One official characterized the NSC under his leadership as a ‘poisonous environment.’

Breaking: interview with Vaxxed producer who was banned from Australia

Polly Tommey, producer of the famous documentary, Vaxxed (trailer), has been banned from Australia. If that sounds quite insane – it is.
Vaxxed has been screening across the world. It is an explosive revelation about egregious fraud at the US Centers for Disease Control (CDC).
The film focuses on the 2014 public confession of a long-time researcher at the CDC, William Thompson. Thompson admits that he and his colleagues committed a crime, by manipulating data to give the MMR vaccine a free pass, ‘proving’ it had no connection to autism – when in fact, as Thompson states, the vaccine does raise the risk of autism in children.
Here are a few statements from the The Sydney Morning Herald’s report, headlined: ‘Anti-vaccination advocate ‘banned from Australia’ after documentary tour.’
‘The producer Polly Tommey behind a controversial anti-vaccination film which has been touring Australia has been banned from returning to the country for three years, she claims.’

Buchanan on Trump: After the Coup, What Then?

That the Trump presidency is bedeviled is undeniable.
As President Donald Trump flew off for August at his Jersey club, there came word that Special Counsel Robert Mueller III had impaneled a grand jury and subpoenas were going out to Trump family and campaign associates.
The jurors will be drawn from a pool of citizens in a city Hillary Clinton swept with 91 percent of the vote. Trump got 4 percent.
Whatever indictments Mueller wants, Mueller gets.
Thanks to a media that savages him ceaselessly, Trump is down to 33 percent approval in a Quinnipiac University poll and below 40 percent in most of the rest.
Before Trump departed D. C., The Washington Post ran transcripts of his phone conversations with the leaders of Mexico and Australia.
Even Obama administration veterans were stunned.

So, it is time to ask: If this city brings Trump down, will the rest of America rejoice?
What will be the reaction out there in fly-over country, that land where the ‘deplorables’ dwell who produce the soldiers to fight our wars? Will they toast the ‘free press’ that brought down the president they elected, and in whom they had placed so much hope?

Australian City Council Halts Construction Of Synagogue Over Fears That ISIS Could Target It

People living in the West have given up a lot to satisfy their government’s concerns over terrorism. Here in the US for instance, our right to privacy in our homes, on our persons, and especially in our communications, has essentially died since 9/11. Everything we say on our phones or search on the internet is catalogued by the NSA without a warrant, we can’t fly on an airplane without being groped and prodded by TSA agents, it’s now fairly common to be forced through police checkpoints many miles away from any border.
The US isn’t alone in this regard. Across the board, every Western nation has sacrificed essential freedoms in the name of combating terrorism. The only difference is that unlike in the US, most Western nations have sacrificed more speech related freedoms rather than privacy (though all Westerners have lost both rights to some degree). This is especially true in Europe and Canada, where expressing right wing opinions or criticizing Islam is now considered a hate crime, and is believed to be an invitation for more terrorist attacks.
Australians however, seems to be close to losing their right to practice any religion they want. That’s what the Jewish community in Sydney learned recently when they tried to build a synagogue. Residents and city council members decided to not let the structure come to fruition because they feared it would invite terrorist attacks.

Cafe Brags That It Discriminates Against Men

As a business, if you want to promote equality, the first thing you need to do is make sure you treat your customers unequally based on their gender.
I love when people empower themselves by becoming business owners. Running a business is certainly not easy, but it still frees you from certain constraints. For instance, pay is not decided arbitrarily by a boss, it is based on the services you provide.
Ironically, one business owner in Australia is using her success to promote inequality.
The cafe in Australia touts their discriminatory practices. An article about the cafe on The Mirror reads: Cafe charges men more than women – for a very powerful reason.
Yes, for a powerful reason. Their discrimination is powerful because statistically, women earn 18% less than men in Australia. That is why it is okay to discriminate in hiring as well; the cafe called Handsome Her only hires women. And they also give preferential seating to women. Men must get to the back of the bus – or cafe, whatever.

Australia Hates Foreigners – Now Their Property Taxes Are Doubled if you are Not Australian

New South Wales in Australia has doubled property taxes for foreign real estate buyers. Of course this violates international law, but governments are broke and they are doing their best to destroy the world economy from every which directions. The politicians are responding to Australians who see foreign buyers of property causing a real estate boom. Much like Britain who raised taxes to stop the real estate boom in London, the greatest problem with all these laws is rather simple. ALL LAWS ENACTED should automatically expire within 4 years. The patch work of draconian laws as Australia have been installing will isolate the economy and do far more harm than anyone suspects. The Japanese bought all sorts of property in the USA during their boom days. They then turned and sold it at a loss.

Australia ‘weather-experts’ falsify climate change

‘Global warming is a non-problem… I say this to Obama: Excuse me, Mr. President, but you’re wrong. Dead wrong.’ (Dr. Ivar Giaever, Nobel-Prize winner in physics)
‘The computer models just weren’t reliable. In fact, I’m not sure the whole thing isn’t crazy, this climate change.’ (Green Guru James Lovelock, who once predicted imminent destruction of the planet via global warming)
I’ve written a number of articles proving the global warming science is far from ‘settled.’ I’ve also written about the political agenda behind climate change. It is stark:
All nations will be ordered (if treaties are signed) to REDUCE THEIR OVERALL ENERGY PRODUCTION BY A DISASTROUS AMOUNT.
Therefore, the output of carbon dioxide would be cut, and, we are told, ‘the planet could be saved.’
But no replacement of carbon-based fuels with solar, wind, and other popular alternative sources could possibly, given present technology, make up the difference and stave off the catastrophe stemming from a major cut in planetary energy production.

Australia’s Bureau Of Meteorology Caught Tampering With Climate Change Data

As time goes, on its becoming harder for any rational person to believe that man-made global warming is a real threat. The foundation of this notion built on data that climate scientists from all over the world have collected. However, it’s been shown time and time again that this data is often flawed and manipulated. It’s not easy to take climate change seriously when the supposed experts are cooking the books.
And that’s exactly what appears to be going on. Just last month, a research report that was peer reviewed by MIT and the EPA, showed that the Global Average Surface Temperature (GAST) data produced by NASA was being ‘adjusted.’ Just about every time a new version of GAST was introduced, the adjustments to the data showed a steeper warming trend. How convenient?
But that is hardly the only example. Recently Australia’s Bureau of Meteorology was caught tampering with temperature data. According to the Daily Caller:

Australian Police Want a New Law to Covertly Turn All Phones into Listening Devices

In picturesque Australia, the Queensland police are proposing new laws that would allow them to turn your internet connected products into listening devices to spy on your conversations. Of course, they are claiming they need this legislation to fight terrorism. The extent of terrorism in Australia has been minimal at best and it has not been the target as is the case in Europe or the United States. This amounts to:

A Minneapolis Mayoral Candidate Wants To Strip The Police Of Their Guns

Amid several high profile police brutality cases in Minneapolis, a mayoral candidate in the twin cities is advocating stripping the majority of police officers of guns in their routine patrols.
Local Fox affiliate KMSP reports that Raymond Dehn, currently a state representative, does not want to completely disarm the police, but rather, limit their free access to guns at all times.
“I’m not saying they don’t have access to that, just like they have access to more lethal weapons in their cars, I would believe they would still have access to their guns in their cars,’ said Dehn. He still advocates the use of night sticks and pepper spray.
Dehn’s position follows the recent acquittal of former St. Anthony, Minneapolis officer Jeronimo Yanez, who shot and killed Philando Castile last year and was paid $48,000 to leave the force. Just this month, an Australian woman was shot and killed by a Minneapolis officer after calling the police to report a potential sexual assault nearby. Both cases have drawn substantial scrutiny and outrage across the country.

UK’s ‘Ground Rent Scandal’ is Wrecking Homeowners

Imagine buying a house with a 30-year mortgage only to discover months later that you have to pay rent on the ground upon which it is built. That rent can go up just about as high and as fast as the real owner wants it to. Plus, if you want to make any structural changes to the building you’ve bought but don’t own, you must first seek permission from the owner; if he or she concurs, you then must pay a hefty fee.
Absurd as this arrangement may sound, it is surprisingly common in the United Kingdom today. Banished from most advanced economies, including those with English common law like Australia, North America, or even Scotland, this archaic leasehold arrangement has in recent years wiped out the equity of thousands of people who mistakenly thought they were buying their own home.
When a house is purchased as a leasehold, the buyer, knowingly or not, is really no more than a tenant, albeit one with a tenancy agreement that typically lasts for up to a century. The freehold – the building as well as the land the property occupies – belongs to somebody else, usually the builder that sold the property, or an investment firm.

Why Some People Are Poorer than Others

Throughout history, until about the middle of the 18th century, mass poverty was nearly everywhere the normal condition of man. Then capital accumulation and a series of major inventions ushered in the Industrial Revolution. In spite of occasional setbacks, economic progress became accelerative. Today, in the United States, in Canada, in nearly all of Europe, in Australia, New Zealand, and Japan, mass poverty has been practically eliminated. It has either been conquered or is in process of being conquered by a progressive capitalism. Mass poverty is still found in most of Latin America, most of Asia, and most of Africa.
Yet even the United States, the most affluent of all countries, continues to be plagued by “pockets” of poverty and by individual poverty.
Temporary pockets of poverty, or of distress, are an almost necessary result of a free competitive enterprise system. In such a system some firms and industries are growing or being born, others are shrinking or dying; and many entrepreneurs and workers in the dying industries are unwilling or unable to change their residence or their occupation. Pockets of poverty may be the result of a failure to meet domestic or foreign competition, of a shrinkage or disappearance of demand for some product, of mines or wells that have been exhausted, of land that has become a dust bowl, and of droughts, floods, earthquakes, and other natural disasters. There is no way of preventing most of these contingencies, and no all encompassing cure for them. Each is likely to call for its own special measures of alleviation or adjustment. Whatever general measures may be advisable can best be considered as part of the broader problem of individual poverty.
This problem is nearly always referred to by socialists as “the paradox of poverty in the midst of plenty.” The implication of the phrase is not only that such poverty is inexcusable, but that its existence must be the fault of those who have the “plenty.” We are most likely to see the problem clearly, however, if we stop blaming “society” in advance and seek an unemotional analysis.

Does Britain Have the World’s Best Health System? Only If You Ignore Outcomes

‘The National Health Service is the closest thing the English have to a religion,’ Margaret Thatcher’s Chancellor Nigel Lawson famously once observed. However, given the swivel-eyed fanaticism with which its supporters will defend it, even from the overwhelming evidence of its shortcomings, at this point it might be more accurate to describe the NHS as Britain’s national cult.
The utterly unparalleled degree of moral outrage which greets any criticism of the NHS bespeaks the decades of propaganda – in the state’s schools, from the state’s politicians, and on the state’s news and media outlets – which have taught the British people to believe that the only alternative to a state-controlled healthcare monopoly is for the poor to die in the streets. So pervasive has this myth become that the Labour party has been able to base its entire electoral strategy, for decades, on painting themselves as the only party that truly cares about ‘our NHS’, and a recent survey found that, when asked ‘What makes you proud to be British’, the NHS was the nation’s most common answer by a considerable margin. All this has led to a situation wherein the desperately needed reforms to Britain’s healthcare system cannot even be discussed, due to the irrational overflowing of blind rage and uncomprehending contempt that greets any criticism of Britain’s ultimate sacred cow.
This baseless self-satisfaction and refusal to consider change is in no way helped by studies such as one which has recently made headlines across the British press, which placed the NHS as ‘the number one health system’. The study in question ranked the healthcare systems of 11 countries, and found that Britain’s NHS fulfilled the study’s criteria of success most adequately, followed by Australia and the Netherlands, with Canada, France, and the United States languishing at the bottom of its rankings. This positive result might come as a surprise even to those who usually accept the mainstream narrative surrounding the NHS. Indeed, even at the bottom of the BBC’s own triumphalist article on the study in question, they link to related stories with headlines such as ‘NHS rationing leaves patients in pain’, and ‘Long waits for surgery have tripled in four years’!

AUSTRALIAN WOMAN SHOT DEAD BY POLICE AFTER CALLING FOR HELP IN MINNEAPOLIS

The shooting of an Australian mother by a police officer in Minneapolis was shocking considering the woman called 911 to report hearing a noise in her home. The shooting was not caught on video because the cop’s body camera was turned off.
Justine Damond was shot around 11:30 pm local time on Saturday. Minnesota’s public safety department said that her death by cop took place after two officers responded to a callout about a possible assault. Damond’s stepson said, ‘my mum was shot for reasons I don’t know,’ expressing a sentiment of many. As is the case with most other police officer shootings, Damond’s family likely won’t ever get the justice they deserve either.
