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.

the Mob case against Porter already failing

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”.

Climate change – hoax or not?

Some of us are old enough to remember the excitement 50 years ago about the coming Ice Age. Scientists were sure of it. The world was about to freeze over, devastating the world’s population. George Christensen posted the following on his FB page:

Ten climate alarmist predictions that did NOT come true in 2020:

1. Average global temperatures were supposed to be up 3 degrees Celsius in 2020. Didn’t happen.

2. Carbon dioxide emissions were supposed to have doubled by 2020. Didn’t happen.

3. We were told to follow Communist China as they were going to reduce gases by 40 to 45 per cent below 2005 figures in 2020. Didn’t happen. (Instead, they increased emissions by 168 per cent above 2005 figures.)

4. Al Gore said there would be no snow on Kilimanjaro by 2020. Didn’t happen. There’s still lots of snow up there.

5. The sea level around Florida was supposed to rise by two feet in 2020. Didn’t happen.

6. There were claims that children wouldn’t know what snow was in 2020. Didn’t happen. It’s snowing in many winter countries in the northern hemisphere and it snowed in Australia earlier this year.

7. They said Pacific Island economies would be devastated by climate change in 2020, particularly Tuvalu and Kirabati. Didn’t happen. Both countries grew their economies.

8. Climate change was supposed to cause nuclear war due to fighting over scarce resources. Didn’t happen.

9. They reckoned the Arctic would be ice free in 2020. Didn’t happen. There is 3.9 million square kilometres of ice in the Arctic.

10. They said glaciers would be gone at Glacier National Park in the USA. Didn’t happen.

Who is killing relationships?

Bettina Arndt and Suzanne Venker think women are killing relationships. They give their reason in this video: Woke women are killing relationships. They begin with a funny story to illustrate their fundamental thesis. There are more Suzanne Venker videos under the tab ‘Coaching women’ (under Men and Women) and a lot more on youtube.

The Pope and ‘inclusive capitalism’

The Great Reset, the Vatican, and “Inclusive Capitalism”

Bill Muehlenberg, Culture Watch, Dec 15, 2020

What do the Pope and the Great Reset have to do with each other?

The papacy has been around for a long time – many centuries. The Great Reset, which I have discussed a lot of late, has also been around – at least for some decades. And a thing called “Inclusive Capitalism” has also been around for a few decades. What happens when you put all three together?

But let me say something at the outset: I am not picking on Catholics. Anyone who knows me realises I have always sought to avoid sectarian warfare. I have Catholic friends and Protestant friends. Some of my hardcore and very devout Catholic friends fully share with me concerns about the current Pope. He has been all over the place, and is far too often pushing various leftist agendas. One of my very committed Catholic friends recently told me she thinks Francis “is a heretic”!

Here I want to focus on a rather alarming website in which the Vatican is fully in bed with a rather worrying agenda. It is called “Council for Inclusive Capitalism with the Vatican”. Someone alerted me to it recently, and after just seconds into it, I was thinking to myself, “Wow, this sounds just like the Great Reset!” And a few seconds later I found that the site was linking to the main Great Reset organisation, the World Economic Forum.

The naked democrats and the US elections

Professor Garrett Ward Sheldon comments on the US elections farce, drawing on an old but pertinent fairytale.

The Emperor’s New Clothes and the Democrats’ Old Tricks

GEN Z Conservative

In the fable “The Emperor’s New Clothes”, a sly royal tailor makes the Leader an invisible outfit and declares it the most beautiful ever; but, only if you have discerning eyes. So, the Monarch goes along with it, trapses around naked and everyone goes along with the ruse. Except an innocent young boy who shouts, “Look, Mummy, he doesn’t have any clothes on!” Then, everyone wakes up, in shame, to the deception, and the Emperor actually congratulates the boy.

We have a widely propagated myth of Biden’s win, dismissing all reasonable discernment and credible evidence. Even Fox and National Review have fallen for the ruse. But some bright young ones (led by a boy named Rudi) see through the fraud and that spreads the truth quickly.

Cultural families connecting nations

Neil Oliver expresses a Burkean understanding of nation and country in his own way. Nations, according to Burke, are moral incorporations that have grown over time, usually on particular land determined by physical coordinates, The moral incorporation includes families within families, and sometimes (like Australia) are linked to a familial incorporation outside it.

NEIL OLIVER’S PAEAN TO BRITAIN

28 November 2020

An emotional paean to Britain and to union, by Neil Oliver.

I was born British and as a British citizen I will live out my days. My nationality is a state of mind and I have no intention of changing either. I know who I am and what I love – and what I love is Britain, the whole place, every nook and cranny. This is my island. No pronouncement by any politician – here today and gone tomorrow – and no referendum on this or that issue of the day will have any effect on my understanding of myself and where I belong. It makes me feel better just to put those words down on the page.

The Canadian anthropologist Wade Davis said, “The world into which you are born does not exist, not in any absolute sense, rather it is a model of reality.” I listen to those words and realise that Britain does not exist either. Neither does England, Ireland, Scotland, Wales or any other country, not really. There are physical landscapes on the face of the Earth – made of dry land set apart from the sea. But the lines drawn and countries named are figments of collective imagination and made all the more meaningful as a result. They are what we say they are. The existence of our homelands is nothing more nor less than an act of will, and also of love. Just as creatures that once walked, swam or flew are long gone now, so there is a long list of countries that once were here but are here no longer … Sumer … Chimor … Kush … the list goes on and on. You might say that a country is a dream shared by its inhabitants. As long as enough of the inhabitants believe in the existence of Britain, or Scotland, or wherever, then the dream remains alive and the country in question is made real. If too many people stop believing, or choose to believe in someplace else, then the dream is over and the country ceases to exist as completely as a candle flame blown out by the wind. I will always believe in Britain, come what may. That will never be taken from me.

The most familiar line of the Declaration of Arbroath, a letter to a 14th century Pope, concerned the necessity of 100 Scots remaining alive if Scotland were to prevail. My dream of Britain requires just me myself alone – it will last as long as me – but as many as want to are welcome to join me.

The question of whether or not Britain should continue to exist has been haunting our lives for years now. In 2014 a referendum asked the population of Scotland whether or not it was deemed a good idea to remain part of Britain, to maintain its existence. A majority said they did wish the union to prevail – 55 percent of voters in fact. The 55/45 split is well known. Less familiar to most is the fact that of the 32 council areas in Scotland, 28 said they preferred to maintain the three-centuries-old union. Many of those councils were small, with small populations dwarfed by those of conurbations elsewhere. But we are all told, are we not, that small voices must be listened to as well as large, and that small, determined, self-confident places might know their own minds?

In spite of that decision, that clean and clear “once in a generation” decision – that decision that both Nicola Sturgeon and Alex Salmond swore, in writing, they would accept and uphold – the question has never gone away.

On the last page of his popular classic, Culloden, about the 1745 Jacobite Rebellion, John Prebble elegantly expressed the nature of dreams, or at least their power over us even when all seems lost.

He wrote: “A lost cause will always win a last victory in men’s imaginations.”

Daniel Andrews: The Marxist nightmare continues

Daniel Andrews queer theory tyranny

Mark Powell

While Christian Porter has delayed the introduction of the Religious Freedom Bill until 2021 due to COVID-19, Daniel Andrews is making hay while the sun shines. 

His Attorney-General, Jill Hennessy, has introduced the Change or Suppression (Conversion) Practices Prohibition Bill 2020 into state parliament, and it has already passed the first reading. 

There are a plethora of problems associated with this particular Bill — but if you think they only affect Victorians, you’d be wrong. Just consider this section from one of the Bill’s many addendums:

The unremitting violence of BLM and Antifa

This last week has seen many videos posted on social media platforms of Black Lives Matter and Antifa Marxist thugs bashing white Trump supporters. The attacks are cowardly, often in groups, and launched from behind on unsuspecting people demonstrating peacefully. The attacks are what BLM and Antifa are about. Violence is their essence. If you deny the widespread violence you are either a lying activist or seriously delusional. LifeSiteNews has compiled examples that are a sickening illustration of the Marxist BLM and Antifa.

BLM, Antifa inject violence into Million MAGA March, attack peaceful participants

Social media lit up over the weekend with video of violent clashes provoked by Black Lives Matter and Antifa against Trump-supporters.

by Charles Robertson

November 17, 2020 (LifeSiteNews.com) — As night fell on Saturday and the peaceful participants of the Million MAGA March in Washington, D.C. began to disperse, violent clashes provoked by Black Lives Matter and Antifa against Trump-supporters began being posted to social media.

Saturday’s massive event in support of Trump was countered by a variety of left-wing organizations, including Refuse Fascism and Black Lives Matter. As Trump-supporters were making their way back to their homes or hotels toward the end of the day, the leftist groups seemed no longer content to curse their opponents, but began to lay hands on them as well.

Part of a video of a daytime incident leading to the arrest of several BLM activists went viral on Saturday evening and into Sunday. The part that was most widely seen showed a Trump-supporter being hit from behind and then kicked while he was down. Leftists on social media complained that this video left out footage of the Trump-supporter starting the conflict. However, further footage shows that this particular incident was the outcome of police redirecting Trump-supporters through an increasingly violent mob of BLM activists.

In the first video, Trump-supporters are redirected through a crowd of BLM and Antifa counter-protesters by police, and a man is repeatedly punched and pushed by a woman in an orange hat starting around 1:13 (warning: violence and foul language):

The deliberate degradation of Australian men

The Unique Discrimination White Men Face

Augusto Zimmerman, Quadrant, 17 November 2020

There are compelling reasons for white men to believe that bias against them is increasing. Take the example of politics. While Australians are worried about the rising unemployment and how to pay expensive electricity bills, the ruling party frets about “gender balance” among its members of federal Parliament. Prime Minister Scott Morrison says he is deeply committed to boosting female representation.

The Liberty Party has recently stated that it wants to increase the representation of female MPs to at least 50 per cent over the next decade. Currently, around 22 per cent of female Liberal MPs grace the federal parliament. The internal report, entitled ‘Room for Movement: Women and Leadership in the Liberal Parity’, relates decreasing electoral support for Liberals with the low proportion of female leaders within the party and, particularly, in the parliament. Currently about 50 per cent of Labor MPs are female. How’s that working for them?

The Australian Labor Party lost the last federal election. And not only that but it received around 300 thousand fewer votes from women than did the Liberal Party. Labor now despises the working class and their voters feel disenfranchised, abandoned, forgotten and ignored. Labor is now a party of social engineers and completely infected by new-leftism, feminism and radical environmentalism. 

As for the Liberal Party, its leadership certainly should think twice before advancing the same leftist agenda. Rather, this party should consider the advice of their founder Sir Robert Menzies, who once said he would vote for a woman ‘with no prejudice and with great cheerfulness’ only if he was satisfied that she is the better and more qualified person to occupy the job.

The argument that the Liberal Party needs more “representation of women” is misuse of language. After all, every MP is supposed to represent men and women alike.[1] As noted by James Macpherson in The Spectator, ‘the sexist idea that only a woman can truly represent the interests of women was well and truly dismantled [this late October] when it was revealed Australia’s foreign affairs minister Marise Payne was yet to speak to her Qatar counterpart about the alleged strip search of 13 Australian women at Doha’.[2]   

It’s unbelievable to think the party founded by Menzies would allow itself to be defined by sexist ideology, especially when the New Left cannot even define the word “woman”. The Liberal Party is taking “incremental steps” towards higher female representation, boasts its left-wing leadership. One would expect a supposedly conservative party to pre-select candidates on the basis of their merit, regardless of gender. However, writes Macpherson, ‘their fixation on social engineering shows that they are taking Australia down the same work cul-de-sac as Labor, only more slowly’.[3]
