The stunning Duchess of Cambridge

Most reports about the funeral of Prince Philip, Duke of Edinburgh, were favourable, acknowledging the solemn, affecting dignity of the ceremony. None complained that it was too long at three hours. But there was something else that unexpectedly attracted the attention of people worldwide.

It was the royal elegance and beauty of Catherine, Duchess of Cambridge, recorded in a series of stunning photographs. One in particular had Catherine staring directly into the camera, her ivory complexion and sparkling clear green eyes mesmerizing the onlooker. Here was the sort of ethereal female beauty, the feminine mystique, that many men once found the ideal and which feminists went about destroying . Now we are brought to vomiting in revulsion by the likes of Cadi B. It’s where Betty Friedman took female beauty.

Milligan’s manic campaign continues to disintegrate

In Gerard Henderson’s must-read Media Watch Dog No. 531 of 26 February 2021, one finds correspondence between Henderson and Gavin Silbert QC, ‘one of Australia’s leading lawyers’, and formerly Victorian Chief Crown Prosecutor (2008-218).

There are three points of interest for me. First, this eminent lawyer with vast experience in Victoria destroys the Milligan mob case against Cardinal Pell. He could not be clearer. He had this to say:

‘I have just finished reading The Persecution of George Pell by Keith Windschuttle which is as good an analysis  as one could hope to find. We lawyers are used to defending clients and interpret their acquittals as a failure of the prosecution to prove guilt beyond reasonable doubt. I must say, that after reading this I was persuaded that not only was the standard of proof not met, but that Pell was an innocent man.’

Louise Milligan ignores all commentary that does not fit in with her spite and delusion, dismissing her critics as supporters of paedophiles. But even she could not ignore the opinion of someone she quotes approvingly in her book Witness. Silbert in the same correspondence:

‘I am certain that I am the same person interviewed by Louis Milligan for her book Witness  but I have not read the book and am reluctant to comment.

The third point of interest is Silbert’s justified criticism of Victoria police.

All I would say is that Victoria Police have the sole function of charging in Victoria and their recent practice of attempting to obtain the imprimatur of the DPP and/or Crown Prosecutors is without any legal justification; they have sought to do this of late to protect themselves from criticism particularly in matters of political sensitivity or high public interest. My invariable practice was to tell Victoria Police that it was a matter for them and to refuse to offer any advice.’

When will we have a commission investigating Victoria Police’s role in the Cardinal Pell witch hunt?

Claim against Christian Porter is ‘now falling to bits’: Andrew Bolt

Sky News, 4 March 2021

The claim made against Attorney-General Christian Porter is “now falling to bits” as there are already two “factual errors” in what the alleged victim says occurred, according to Sky News host Andrew Bolt.

“By way of introduction, let me say that one of the silliest and [most] dangerous slogans of our time is ‘believe the victim’,” Mr Bolt said.

“This rape, we’re told, occurred in Sydney in January 1988”.

“The material that Porter’s accuser wrote – and which friends sent to some journalists after she killed herself – recalls that just before she was raped that very night, she went dancing with Christian Porter at the Hard Rock Café”.

“The first Hard Rock Café in Sydney, in Darlinghurst, did not open until 1989, April 1989, a full year or more later. This woman’s account, as told by that journalist, is wrong.”

Mr Bolt said he has now found a “second detail” which is “more important”.

Porter already Guilty – Annette Kimmitt of MinterEllison

In an astounding email to her 2,500 staff, Annette Kimmitt, CEO of Australia’s largest law firm, MinterEllison, apologised for the ‘pain’ caused by the firm’s acceptance of Christian Porter as client. One of her senior lawyers, Peter Barlett, well-known defamation expert, accepted the brief.

Christian Porter is presently the target of the media mob for allegedly raping his 16-year-old girlfriend 33 years ago when he was seventeen. Take note: 33 years ago, when Porter was seventeen-years-old.

Kimmitt wrote in her email, “The nature of this matter is clearly causing hurt to some of you, and it has certainly triggered hurt for me.” Poor Annette, to have to endure a bit of hurt. Boo-hoo.

In an oblique reprimand of Bartlett, Kimmitt explained that he had accepted Porter without going through the firm’s process of approval.

As I say, this action by the CEO of Australia’s largest law firm is utterly astounding. Like the media mob, to which she has joined herself, she is declaring Christian Porter guilty before the legal processes have begun.

What’s she doing in the law, leaving aside the question of what she’s doing as a lawyer, and what she’s doing heading up a law firm? Has she not heard of the principle, ‘innocent until found guilty’?

What has happened to the law in Australia? Was not the Pell Affair enough to show Australia’s legal system is on the slide to Salem Witch Hunt and the Dreyfus Affair territory? Apparently not.

Annette Kimitt has joined Louise Milligan’s Sixth Grade Spiteful Girls’ Club. Louise and her pals are the ultimate bone-pointing legal authority. Once they point the bone, that’s it. The guilty may as well lie down and die. There’s nothing they can do or say.

See reports in the Age and Guardian.

Louise Milligan’s 6th grade spiteful Girls’ club is on the rampage – again

I hardly took notice when a young women accused a man connected to the Liberal (read conservative) Party of rape. I took in the bare details that the alleged rape took place after a night of drinking and the couple had gone to someone’s unlit office in Parliament house – to have a cup of tea and a scone, no doubt. I didn’t take much notice because I knew what would follow.

‘We see you, we hear you, we believe you.’

Milligan and her spiteful pals were immediately on the case beating up the usual scenario of a toxic environment in which women are always the helpless victims. Of course, the toxic environment is always one inhabited by knuckle-dragging conservative types – the male-males that Milligan hates.

As expected, more cases emerged, the last being (horror!) of someone stroking a woman’s thigh. What trauma that totally helpless young woman must have suffered.

As expected, the actions of this one man were extended to the whole herd of conservative males in Canberra. They were all guilty of raping the woman.

The cry went up from Milligan and her spiteful pals. Action must be taken! There was no end to the prescriptions to deal with the uncontrollable males roaming Canberra on the lookout for helpless young women.

When the girls’ club rose in fury about the alleged rape by a cabinet minister of a women 33 years ago, my wife asked who they were talking about. I said, ‘I haven’t a clue, but if I have to guess, it’s probably Christian Porter. ‘Why,’ said my wife? I replied, ‘Because Milligan and her 6th Grade Spiteful Girls’ Club are after him and they won’t let him go. He’s done for.’

Christian Porter is a much lesser scalp than Cardinal Pell, but a prize one, nevertheless. Now, who’s next?

The Political Philosophy of Thomas Jefferson

The world’s attention has been on American politics and American government for the last few months. The reference to the American Constitution and its founders has been constant. Indeed, understanding the impeachment process and the choice of a supreme court judge requires some knowledge of the constitution and its contributors. Professor Garrett Ward Sheldon has written a book about Thomas Jefferson, one of the most influential of the founding fathers. His book, The Political Philosophy of Thomas Jefferson, is favourably reviewed below.

Summary of The Political Philosophy of Thomas Jefferson by Garrett Ward Sheldon

To show what elements of what theories comprised Jefferson’s political philosophy, Sheldon traces the development of his political thoughts alongside the development of America, showing how Jefferson’s thoughts changed as America evolved throughout The Political Philosophy of Thomas Jefferson.

First, before delving into the relationship between Jefferson’s thoughts and America’s evolving national character, Sheldon describes the combination of Lockean liberalism and classical republicanism that primarily contributed to Jefferson’s political philosophy, hinting at how Jefferson was able to blend “many philosophical concepts into a comprehensive and coherent political philosophy, the essence of which [might] be closer to classical republicanism than to Lockean liberalism.”

Then, after delving into the attributes of and differences between the two, Sheldon begins his history-based approach, starting, as should be expected, with America as a colony. In this chapter, Sheldon discusses how “the position that the American colonists found themselves in…accounted for much of their feelings of both affection for, and resentment of, the royal British Empire.”

What is the new Normal?

Below is a commentary on a documentary, The New Normal, produced by the happen.network. A link to the documentary is in the commentary on the Mercola website. The ‘New Normal’ is about the ‘Great Reset’ proposed by The World Economic Forum (WEF), whose frightening detail has been exposed during this last year. The intentions of the Great Resent and the Fourth Industrial Revolution are not the fruit of some wacky right-wing conspiracy theory – the usual way the left deals with the exposition of their subversion and sabotage – but public outpourings of the fanatics and Dr Strangelove types that make up the cabal of the WEF. This is scary stuff. Read it. Acquaint yourself with a real Dr Strangelove.

STORY AT-A-GLANCE

  • “The New Normal” documentary by Happen.network investigates speculation that the COVID-19 pandemic was planned — or at least is being exploited — by a group of tech elite who are dictating policy to governments globally in order to push a totalitarian agenda
  • At the root of the agenda is a significant economic and power shift that only a minority of people are aware of, being driven by the Fourth Industrial Revolution
  • The World Economic Forum stated that 50% of all employees will require reskilling by 2025, “as the ‘double-disruption’ of the economic impacts of the pandemic and increasing automation transforming jobs takes hold”
  • AI is predicted to merge with humans and take over jobs and cities; AI will be so much better at driving than people, the documentary explains, that eventually most people will be afraid to drive; soon after that, humans won’t be allowed to drive at all
  • Data colonialism and digital dictatorship are very real possibilities in the “new normal,” as is the division of the world into wealthy elites and a “useless class,” which ends up as an exploited data colony.

“The New Normal” documentary by Happen.network investigates speculation that the COVID-19 pandemic was planned — or at least is being exploited — by a group of tech elite who are dictating policy to governments globally in order to push a totalitarian agenda.

There are many moving parts involved, from bad data that are inflating COVID-19 mortality rates to problems with PCR tests that are leading to very high false positive rates. A falsely inflated death rate drives more fear among the population, while a misleadingly high number of cases can be used as justification for more business closures and lockdowns.

All of this serves to further the ultimate agenda to “build back better” and “reset” the world to a “new normal.” At the root of the agenda, however, is a significant economic and power shift that only a minority of people are aware of, being driven by the Fourth Industrial Revolution.

The political philosophy of James Madison

The world’s attention has been on American politics and American government for the last few months. The reference to the American Constitution and its founders has been constant. Indeed, understanding the impeachment process and the choice of a supreme court judge requires some knowledge of the constitution and its contributors. Professor Garrett Ward Sheldon has written a book about James Madison, one of the writers of the constitution. His book, The Political Philosophy of James Madison, is favourably reviewed below.

Summary of The Political Philosophy of James Madison by Garrett Ward Sheldon

Admin, Gen Z Conservative, 11 February 2021

The Political Philosophy of James Madison is, as you might expect, about Madison’s political beliefs and how he came to them. Given that he was a Founding Father, the author of the Constitution, an author of The Federalist Papers, and one of the pre-eminent Virginians from the early American time period, understanding how he thought and what he envisioned for America is singularly important.

To help the reader understand Madison’s political thoughts, Sheldon begins with a brief introduction to it and the ideas that will be discussed. According to him, Madison’s political views changed over time, shifting between aspects of American nationalism, Lockean liberalism, and Classical Republicanism, yet were held together and coherent because of their grounding in Protestant Christianity, specifically Calvinist culture and theology.

Additionally, although being associated with Jefferson, who had, at times, radical views on liberty, and being a key opponent of the Federalist Party, Madison was no anarchist; while his views on what measure of national control was acceptable, he never shifted away from the basic premise that the national government should remain, to some degree, supreme.

After that brief introduction to Madison and his political ideas, Sheldon shifts to the first real chapter of The Political Philosophy of James Madison, which is on the intellectual underpinnings of James Madison’s political thoughts. To Sheldon, the root of many of those thoughts was Calvinist theology and his belief that it and reason complemented each other. For example, Madison’s writings, even later in life, reflected his Calvinist upbringing; they lacked the rhetorical flair of Jefferson and were instead well-grounded and ordered.

The truth about Aboriginal disadvantage

Loudest voices come from the cities, not the bush

Jacinta Nampijinpa, The Australian, 5 January 2021

Despite Closing the Gap, there remains a seven-year difference in life expectancy between the cities and the bush.
Despite Closing the Gap, there remains a seven-year difference in life expectancy between the cities and the bush.

Our political leaders don’t live in the bush, they live in cities. Heads of Aboriginal organisations don’t live in the bush, they live in cities. Policymakers don’t live in the bush, they live in cities. Those with the loudest voices pushing to change the date of Australia Day — or for a voice to parliament — don’t live in the bush, they live in the cities.

The cities are where the activists and their credulous supporters live among some of Australia’s most privileged. The cities are where the “progressive” media lives and the frame through which it views and reports to the rest of Australia. The cities are where the universities indoctrinate with much of their politically correct ideological teachings, delivered by academics who’ve never lived in remote Indigenous communities yet who bombard parliamentary inquiries and grant application channels with recommendations that fail to even grasp Indigenous disadvantage.

This is part of the reason decades of attempts to address Indigenous disadvantage have fallen short of accomplishing the outcomes needed to fix the ongoing raft of problems. Indigenous Australians in regional remote areas still face dire circumstances.

The way ahead for Trump

Professor Sheldon covers President Trump’s considerable achievements before sketching what he hopes the former president will do. His description of the unrelenting attack by the American left through a corrupt media should remind Australians of the bastardry to which the contemptible media in this country subjected former prime minister Tony Abbott. Conservatives have to come to a clear understanding of the extent to which the political process has become a tool of a traitor class, a class that works to subvert everything about traditional western society.

What Should Trump Do Now?

Professor Garrett Ward Sheldon, Gen Z Conservative

Neither I nor anyone else should presume to tell Donald Trump what to do. He is quite capable of deciding for himself, which I’m sure he will do. I am writing only what I HOPE he will do, for himself, our country, and the world.

President Donald Trump will go down in history as the greatest victim of political abuse and harassment, in spite of (or perhaps because of!) his popularity, extraordinary accomplishments, and personal character.

Since BEFORE his bid for the Presidency, he has been maligned, slandered, falsely accused, attacked in every way, ridiculed, misrepresented, and finally cheated out of the greatest landslide victory of any American Presidential election. Throughout all this, he has shown remarkable restraint, discretion, respect, and professionalism. He is a Real Hero.
