Australia’s Global ‘Exit’: Tribalism and International Institutions

Source:  On Line Opinion, 16 September 2016:  “Australia’s global ‘exit’: tribalism and international institutions” Binoy Kampmark believes that Senators Pauline Hanson and Malcolm Roberts “hail from a long line of populists suspicious of the “international institution”…” the United Nations, and then brings to the readers mind American Senator Jesse Helms’ warning in the late 1980s to his own American people that the United Nations’ intention was  “to impose its moral authority on the United States in the name of international justice.”  At the time Senator Jesse Helms still believed “The American people will not buy it”.But just as Australians are now learning of the sell-out of Australia to the Chinese Communists so the American people have been sold out by their leaders.

To Distribute or Redistribute

From Social Credit Angles

There is a debate going on beneath the nonsense of mainstream economic discussion. The contenders are agreed on one important point; that a better distribution of wealth is the solution to our economic woes and the road to a more functional society. As Martin Luther King said ‘it is now incontestable that the wealth and resources of the United States make the elimination of poverty absolutely practical.’ This is true throughout the industrial world and could be true everywhere.

IDEOLOGY ABOVE MEDICAL SAFETY IN CANADA

Australians need to be aware:  Ontario puts ideology above medical safety. Starting June 13th, 2016, the Ontario (Canada) Liberal government began issuing medical identification cards differently.  Now, instead of "M" or "F", no sex is listed AT ALL on the cards—in order to be "inclusive" for those very few Ontarians who believe themselves to be transgendered.

Ontario's Liberal government has removed "male" and "female" from its medical identification cards, putting the health and safety of patients at risk! This will surely endanger Ontarians' lives by misdirecting emergency healthcare efforts.

Marriage - the Bigger Picture

MALCOLM TURNBULL LIED TO GROUP OF CHRISTIANS CONCERNING PLEBISCITE?It is not just practising Christians who should be vitally interested in the proposed national plebiscite on ‘same-sex ‘marriage’.  As the outcome of such a move would eventually affect the very foundation of this nation, Australians one and all should be concerned.

I see Andrew Bolt is more concerned, along with many another journalist, about the spat between the group of Christians and Turnbull than the proposed plebiscite:“Turnbull vs Christians: which do you think is lying?”http://www.heraldsun.com.au/blogs/andrew-bolt/turnbull-vs-christians-which-do-you-think-is-lying/news-story/SPP-1361680But I don’t want to go into ‘who said what and when’, I am more interested in how the issue will eventually be played out for the Australian people to understand the real issues.

A generation left behind: Millions of Chinese children abandoned as parents seek work

by China correspondent Matthew Carney Around 61 million children are left behind in China's rural villages and towns while their parents work in the big cities.Li Yikui is a 13-year-old boy who radiates warmth and friendliness. But inside he is hurting."I love to be with my classmates, so that I don't feel lonely," he said.Yikui has not seen his father in four years. His mother visits just once a year.When he is asked if he misses them, a big tear rolls down his cheek and he covers his face with his hands. It is a silent, but eloquent, answer.Yikui is one of the millions of children left behind, the hidden casualties of China's rapid development.Studies show about 70 per cent of the 'left-behind' kids suffer from emotional trauma, depression or anxiety.They are sometimes called the lost generation, or the damaged generation.About a third of the left-behind children — 20 million — will get involved in crime, while another third will need time in mental health institutions, according to a small Christian NGO called Children Charity International (CCI)."I can't imagine what that would do to China," CCI founder Joseph Lim said.So far young Yikui is staying on the right path.We meet him in a noisy classroom at Xiaping school in central China's remote and mountainous Hefeng county.About 40 per cent of his classmates are growing up without parents. They tend to lag behind other kids in their grades and behaviour, so they need extra help."The left-behind children lack the care and guidance of their parents. So they lack self-discipline to some extent," vice principal Mr Xu Liang said.

How is the Alt-Right and white activism doing with woman?


“How is the Alt-Right and white activism doing with woman both politically and culturally? These efforts have been male-dominated. I get the sense that, in the main, the Alt-Right and white activism tend to be turn-offs to women. To the extent that that is true, why, and what can be done about it?”

When I see this GERMAN WOMAN…, I AM DAMNED PROUD TO BE A GERMAN!

CHINA'S GIFTS, RESEARCH, 'SPECIAL BONDS' AND SAM DASTYARI'S GHOST FROM HIS PAST

“Sam Dastyari had been in the Senate mere months when a ghost from his past came back to haunt him. He was sued by a marketing company over work it said he had commissioned and then abandoned while general secretary of the NSW Labor Party.He settled the case for around $5000, but rather than pay it himself or get the Labor Party to help, he sent the bill to the Yuhu Group, reporting its support in the register of senators' interests.

The Shenzhen Yuhu investment development group was founded by Huang Xiangmo, a Chinese-Australian billionaire to whom $5000 was literally small change.”Ref:  http://www.smh.com.au/comment/sam-dastyari-and-a-ghost-from-his-past-20160906-gra82i.html

THE STEADY TREK OF LABOR ‘UP-AND-COMERS’ TO CHINA

Bill Pickering writes: “… So Mr Bean is on the communists’ payroll? Big deal! Well, it would be a big deal for any entity other than the Labor Party because for 80 years a right of passage to a Labor safe seat was the obligatory trip to Moscow to spill one’s guts over what an awful democratic direction Australia was travelling in.Dastyari is a member of the NSW Catholic Right, the most notorious of factions that combined with the Victorian Left’s union power base to give us Bob Carr, Julia Gillard, Bill Shorten, Graham Richardson, Tony Burke and an array of other Labor sub-luminaries and Sydney underworld spivs…

After the break-up of the Soviet Union the ALP’s fascination with communism was limited to Cuba and China. China won. So there has been a steady trek of Labor’s up-and-comers, like Dastyari, to Beijing….”

THE FRANKFURT SCHOOL’S POISONOUS IDEOLOGIES LIVE ON

Source:  http://www.catholicinsight.com/online/features/article_882.shtmlBasically, the Frankfurt School’s task was, as swiftly as possible, to undermine the Judaeo-Christian legacy. To do this they called for the most negative destructive criticism possible of every sphere of life which would be designed to de-stabilize society and bring down what they saw as the ‘oppressive’ order. Their policies, they hoped, would spread like a virus—‘continuing the work of the Western Marxists by other means’.

Carl Grünberg, the Institute’s director from 1923-1929, was an avowed Marxist, although the Institute did not have any official party affiliations. But in 1930 Max Horkheimer assumed control and he believed that Marx’s theory should be the basis of the Institute’s research. When Hitler came to power, the Institut was closed and its members, by various routes, fled to the United States and migrated to major US universities—Columbia, Princeton, Brandeis, and California at Berkeley.

RICH AND DUMB OR RICH AND SKEPTICAL?

http://joannenova.com.au/ JoNova asks:  Most of Asia’s bankers ignore climate risks. Hmm. Rich and dumb, or rich and skeptical?

A survey in Asia found that 69% of financial institutions there don’t bother with assessing climate change risks when considering financing projects. Either these bankers have missed the last 20 years of IPCC messaging (careless inattentive bankers), or they’ve seen it and they know it’s baloney (skeptical bankers). Hmmm. What’s more likely?Looks like two thirds of Asian banks don’t believe the IPCC:

UTTER BETRAYAL OF PUBLIC TRUST ON CHINESE PRIME LAND BUYOUT – ALAN JONES

This is the greatest political cop-out. CHINA BUYING UP OUR PRIME AGRICULTURAL LANDListen here.... http://www.2gb.com/audioplayer/202331

ALAN JONES ON THE GREAT CHINESE BUY-UP The Federal Government's release of Foreign Investment figures - and their argument that "China only owns one per cent" - shows how suddenly deeply panicked they are by the emergence of massive people power and the growing rage at the sell-out of our nation.What they haven't added, mind you, is the fact that China is mostly only buying up the best of the best - and remember, we only have 4% of our nation classified as 'prime agricultural land"Of course, there are plenty who insist that the big sell-off to China is all part of the major parties' "business plan ' - that, and maintaining the massive flow of overseas donations to both parties.

FOREIGN INVESTMENT REGULATOR’S ‘CONFLICT OF INTEREST?

David Pascoe’s Facebook writes:  Beyond belief: The Chiarman of Australian Foreign Investment Review Board joins ‘Asian Buyout Team’ – yet sees no conflict of interest.  The Chairman apparently believes that 'the hooker in a suit' was simply a line in a movie.  No wonder the rage is burning right across the nation

ABC News:  7/9/2016  Brian Wilson FIRB chairmanBear in mind, Brian Wilson has been chairman of the FIRB since April 2012. Scott Morrison, the Treasurer, has rejected concerns about the potential for perceived conflicts of interest after the chairman of the Foreign Investment Review Board was appointed to a key advisory position with a global private equity group.A spokesman for Mr Morrison said FIRB chairman Brian Wilson would step aside from deliberations that involve his new role as a senior advisor with The Carlyle Group's Asia buyout team.  "He has agreed to remove himself from consideration of any cases that Carlyle is involved in," the spokesman said."FIRB needs to attract people with deep knowledge and experience in foreign investment. It has strong procedures in place to manage conflicts."  Carlyle issued a statement containing comments from Mr Wilson who said he was "delighted" to partner with the private equity group."I look forward to working closely with the team to assist as it pursues new investment opportunities across various sectors in Australasia and to create value for Carlyle's portfolio companies," he said.In his role as FIRB chairman, Mr Wilson is in charge of the organisation that recommends whether the Treasurer should approve or reject large foreign investments in Australian businesses.

FACTIONAL DRONES, STAFFERS - OR THOSE WHO CAN BE BLACK-MAILED

Former Pollie Tells it Like It Is - Source:  https://www.facebook.com/OVHReproAlex Douglas:  We got to this because our political parties were completely taken over by lobbyists and the only people pre-selected to be our representatives are factional drones, staffers or those who can be black-mailed.

Both major parties are guilty. The members now make little effort to disguise both their intent or their true masters. It is no wonder the leader of the communist Chinese government is scolding a petulant disobedient Australian PM for he has paid his money and he wants an outcome that fits his plans.The politicians may have sold their souls to the Chinese but we, the people, owe them nothing. Turnbull not only needs to get some "balls" but work for his true masters, the Australian public.

KEITH VAZ M.P. THE INDEPENDENT’S HERO

With tongue-in-cheek, the UK newspaper ‘The Independent’ carried a report on the antics of a UK MP Keith Vaz:“It's heroic of Keith Vaz to have done so much personal research into the prostitution laws he was helping to reform.  How on earth is the Home Affairs committee chair to acquaint himself with the ins and outs of male prostitution, if not by having affairs at home with male prostitutes? How better to investigate the impact of cocaine than by offering it to guests, and observing its effects on mind and body close-up?...”Continue reading here…http://www.independent.co.uk/voices/keith-vaz-male-prostitutes-controversy-cocaine-drugs-committee-hero-labour-tory-politicians-personal-a7225196.html POLITICS 2016 STYLE ?But Francis Carr Begbie on the Occidental Observer site was not so generous.  Begbie asks:

“Why did Keith Vaz protect Greville Janner?” Just as the British establishment thought it had buried the Lord Greville Janner child abuse story it is coming back to haunt them in the most unexpected ways. For one of Janner’s closest political associates and stoutest defenders has been filmed by a tabloid newspaper hiring young male prostitutes and asking for drugs.

LEFT-RIGHT, LEFT-RIGHT, AND AGAIN I SAY... LEFT-RIGHT, LEFT-RIGHT!

American group Daily Kos wrote:Wallace, the misleadingly named First Amendment Defense Act would distort our cherished principle of religious liberty to allow taxpayer-funded discrimination. Sign the petition OPPOSING the First Amendment Defense Act. This legislation is a continuation of right-wing extremists relentless push to redefine religious liberty as the right to discriminate. Since the Supreme Court’s marriage equality ruling, the anti-gay Right has been pushing for passage of the Orwellian-named First Amendment Defense Act (FADA), which would allow taxpayer-funded discrimination against LGBT people and same-sex couples, and eviscerate an executive order by President Obama prohibiting sexual orientation and gender identity discrimination by federal contractors. Add your name to speak out against discrimination now. Tell members of Congress to OPPOSE the so-called First Amendment Defense Act!...

To which Wallace Klinck responded:I think you are running into an illogical impasse.  Freedom by its very nature necessarily carries with it not only the right but the responsibility to discriminate. Discrimination involves the ability to differentiate and differentiation is discrimination by definition. Discrimination is the mark of civilized man and without it there can be no quality—indeed no intelligently directed behaviour or action.  Hence, indiscriminate use of the concepts of discrimination or equality is at best meaningless and at worst insanely destructive.  So long as you remain enslaved by the Marxist and Puritan notions about human work being the only source of wealth and the only justification for partaking of the products of industry you will remain trapped in this metaphysical prison.

Cultural Revolution in Australia


“Western civilization at the present day is passing through a crisis which is essentially different from anything that has been previously experienced. Other societies in the past have changed their social institutions or their religious beliefs under the influence of external forces or the slow development of internal growth. But none, like our own, has ever consciously faced the prospect of a fundamental alteration of the beliefs and institutions on which the whole fabric of social life rests ...Civilization is being uprooted from its foundations in nature and tradition and is being reconstituted in a new organisation which is as artificial and mechanical as a modern factory.”- - Christopher Dawson. “Enquiries into Religion and Culture,” p. 259.

Dystopian-Movie-Resonates-Today"Jonas cannot believe that Community would ban all beauty, all grace, all normalcy and redefine human existence along such rigid, drab lines. There's no winners, no losers, no love, no hate, no music, no fear, no memory, no dancing and no "lies," except for the fact that Community is one Big Lie."

The Social Credit Analysis of Cost

In the interests of simplicity, the Social Credit indictment of the existing economic order might be reduced to the following claim: the financial system is not self-liquidating.If we were to conceive of the financial system, which is primarily composed of the banking and cost accountancy systems, as a sort of computer software overlay that reads and represents physical economic facts by measuring economic activity, the basic idea is that instead of automatically balancing price build-up on the one hand with income distribution on the other, the existing software is designed to generate a flow of costs and hence of prices in the course of the production of any industrial good or service which will necessarily exceed the consumer purchasing power that is simultaneously being released in the form of wages, salaries, and dividends. The end result is a chronic lack or deficiency of proper or true consumer buying power relative to the goods and services on offer, i.e., of buying power that is not derived from the mortgaging of future incomes via the contracting of additional or compensatory debt from the banks.1

A self-liquidating financial system would always maintain price-values and consumer incomes in an automatic balance, such that the act of producing a specified volume of goods and services would always distribute, ipso facto, sufficient purchasing power to liquidate, i.e., to cancel once and for all, the corresponding price-values. The present system is not self-liquidating precisely because it generates prices at a faster rate than it distributes the consumer income with which those prices might be met.

Global central bankers, stuck at zero, unite in plea for help from governments by Howard Schneider

JACKSON HOLE, Wyo. (Reuters) - Central bankers in charge of the vast bulk of the world's economy delved deep into the weeds of money markets and interest rates over a three-day conference here, and emerged with a common plea to their colleagues in the rest of government: please help."Mired in a world of low growth, low inflation and low interest rates, officials from the Federal Reserve, Bank of Japan and the European Central Bank said their efforts to bolster the economy through monetary policy may falter unless elected leaders stepped forward with bold measures. These would range from immigration reform in Japan to structural changes to boost productivity and growth in the U.S. and Europe.

Without that, they said, it would be hard to convince markets and households that things will get better, and encourage the shift in mood many economists feel are needed to improve economic performance worldwide. During a Saturday session at the symposium, such a slump in expectations about inflation and about other aspects of the economy was cited as a central problem complicating central banks' efforts to reach inflation targets and dimming prospects in Japan and Europe...."Continue reading.... http://www.reuters.com/article/us-usa-fed-fiscal-idUSKCN1120SU

THE AMERICAN YEARNING FOR A ‘UTOPIA’

“The pragmatist’s conception of freedom ultimately fails because it does not understand the relation between freedom and thought, that is, between freedom and spiritual law.”
- - George Grant in "Philosophy in the Mass Age"
 

In “Utopia, Nostalgia and the Jew,” 28 August, 2016, Gilad Atzmon sees ‘the Left and progressive thought’ yearns for a Utopia, an imaginary ideal society as their political and social goal.   He comes to the conclusion “No left or progressive intellectual narrative is impervious to some sort of utopian ideal.”
 
But, “… for about half of the American people, utopia is nostalgic. The return of the ‘American Dream,’ of being great once again – this is the idyllic dream shared by supporters of both Donald Trump and Bernie Sanders.”
