Islamic Jihad in Sydney

Written by

Shouting ‘Allahu Akbar’ while stabbing innocent citizens in Sydney. A woman is dead and others are injured after a man went on a stabbing rampage in downtown Sydney – all the while yelling “Allahu Akbar”. But as is almost always the case, much of the media is not mentioning this latter fact. And just as bad, the authorities are telling us that this has nothing to do with terrorism.

UN Women to replace "women" with "gender"

Written by

The UN agency for women announced last week it is no longer focused on women’s rights but rather “equality of all genders,” including LGBTIQ+. The announcement came at a UN event called “Gender Diversity Beyond Binaries.”

It was a tense and chaotic scene at the South Hill Public Library in Spokane, Washington, last Saturday, June 15, and now both sides in this controversy are preparing for a second round of the Drag Queen Story Hour, which targets toddlers and pre-teens.

Can't get no satisfaction

Written by

If you like blues and rock, you would know of a few old classic tunes, such as Muddy Waters’ I Can’t Be Satisfied (1948), or the Rolling Stones’ (I Can’t Get No) Satisfaction (1965). Both spoke about the frustration of not getting the satisfaction they were looking for. And both had sexuality as a sub-theme as well.

It’s been a busy couple of weeks in terms of the ongoing transformation of America so let me catch you up.

Does anyone else see it as ironic that the squelching of conservative speech has been placed into overdrive since Americans elected a conservative president?

Most Western media personnel, politicians, and commentators will overwhelmingly have one standard for Muslims and another for Christians – both in terms of what they do and what is done to them. The double standards here are as odious as they are obvious. And we again have a perfect example of this with the way  Christchurch and Sri Lanka have been handled.

If you are reading this article – or this website – you are doing well. I really do not believe both will be around a whole lot longer – not the way the crackdown on free speech is going. Throughout the West the forces of intolerance and bigotry – yes, the secular left – are doing all they can to stamp out all points of view but their own.

And leading the way here is how the left is seeking to make all criticism of Islam illegal.

Children Go to the Back of the Queue

Written by

That the West has a schizophrenic view of children and their wellbeing is an understatement. We go on and on about not separating children from their parents, as in debates over refugees and asylum seekers, but we extol as a human right the slaughter of unborn children.

The Vendetta Against Cardinal Pell

Written by

Australian George Cardinal Pell has been found guilty in a Melbourne court of sexual abuse of two boys under the age of 16, including oral sex, and is now in prison awaiting sentencing: probably a term of several years. An appeal is being lodged by his legal team.

   But is he guilty?

In an age where reason and logic are not exactly the flavour of the month, sloppy thinking abounds. Public discourse has taken a big hit with plenty of talking heads offering us just plain nonsense. They can throw out utterly illogical and contradictory statements and think they are giving us great contributions to a discussion or debate.

Highly sexualised school curriculum, identical to Victoria's notorious Safe-Schools programme, has been found in a Catholic high school in Perth.

The Attack of the 50 Foot Trans Tyrants

Written by
Is it just me? It seems that so much of today’s sexual insanity happens to be as believable as the stuff of science fiction. The radical trans movement is spiralling out of control, and many sensible folks have to wonder if reality is now being replaced by whacko Hollywood sci-fi flicks.

Beyond the Pale

Written by

The Tavern Pale is the large hedge that surrounds the property, keeping the riff-raff out. That is what a 'Pale' does. Pale is also the hue of white folk, especially old white folk, and specifically men, old white folk who constitute at least half of our customers. The riff-raff think that we are beyond the Pale, being as we are happily on the opposite side of the hedge, drinking our pints.

Victorian Nero Declares War on Christianity

Written by

[Photo credit: the Age] History repeats itself, which is why we all need to be students of history. And when we ignore or forget the lessons of history, we simply end up repeating the mistakes of history. Consider the increased paganization of the West and the corresponding rise in anti-Christian bigotry and persecution.

The feminarchy, intersectionality, cultural relativism, a galaxy of phobias & authoritarian thought police – is there a clear line between classical Marxism and the war against Christian culture, or is it just a right-wing conspiracy to justify hate? In this video, I talk to Dr Stephen Chavura about Marxism, socialism and post-modernism.

Bella Dodd on the Marxist mindset of hatred

Written by

Bella Dodd was a member of the Communist Party in the US during the mid twentieth century. She was eventually expelled from the party and experienced a conversion, which led to her rejoining the Catholic Church, the church of her childhood. Dodd testified before the Senate Internal Security Subcommittee in 1953, explaining how Communists had infiltrated trade unions, teacher training colleges, seminaries and other institutions in order to subvert them. This extract is taken from Chapter 11 of her autobiography, School of Darkness:

Gaga, Pence, and Christianity

Written by

We live in dark times. There is just no getting around that fact. Truth no longer means anything, feelings trump everything, and confusion abounds as to even the basics in life. Now we can’t even tell if someone is a boy or a girl, and we are said to be hateful and bigoted if we even try. Sadly, as anyone who seeks to present truth in the public arena and the social media knows, this has massively impacted our churches as well. Today most young people who call themselves Christians know little or nothing about their own faith, run on emotions, and tend to just drift along with the dominant secular culture. The church in the West is in a real bad way as a result, and things will likely only get worse. And as one of the most recent examples of this, consider the recent uproar taking place over Mike Pence, his wife, and Lady Gaga.

If masculinity is 'toxic' then what is feminism?

Written by

It seems that belittling men has become an international pastime, with the media, politicians and special interest groups continuing to put put men down for simply being men. The now-infamous Gillette ad has created a huge backlash against this fashionable trend which simultaneously degrades men while elevating women to something which they are not. (Here is a comparison of old vs new marketing from Gillette.) Sure, men have certain weaknesses that they need to reign in. Back in the day, that was called Self Control - something that is sorely lacking in most schools and homes in this sophisticated age. But now are lives are all about The Feels - and how feminine is a society that is based purely on emotion? Well, it's obviously quite dysfunctional. The cognitive dissonance abounds when society (via feminism) thinks all men are scum but also believes that women are equal to men.

Yes, They Have Declared War on Children

Written by

It used to be that the best way to ascertain how civilised and compassionate a culture is was to see how they treated their most vulnerable – especially their own children. This had always been a good test of a caring culture. But it seems that in the West today we have turned that principle on its head. We now seem intent on destroying our children, and we happily use government policy to do so. A state-led war on children has been declared, and the casualties are mounting up. Of course I and others have documented this assault on our children for decades now. It is happening all over the West. No place seems immune from this ongoing war on our children and their innocence. Let me offer three recent shocking examples of how this is being played out in just one place: the Australian state of Western Australia. It seems the Labor Government there is so committed to radical social engineering ideology that children are mere fodder for their political manoeuvring.

A friend posted something today on the social media that caught my attention. It concerned a rather disturbing fact: one half of all Russian young people know nothing about their own nation’s murderous Communist past, including the Gulag, the crimes of Stalin, and so on. I chipped in by saying that just as worrying is the likely fact that probably a full three quarters of Australian and American young people don’t know about this either. The dumbing down of our young people, including their blatant historical illiteracy, is a huge worry indeed. Being ignorant of one’s own history is a recipe for disaster – as history proves. But of course we will never learn the lessons of history if we do not know history. So things will simply get worse as more and more people are cast adrift from their own past, and any knowledge of it.

Primordial Chicken Soup

Written by

Where do we come from? How did we get here? So asks almost every child. And thinking adult. Customers in the Tavern offer answers, and few, if any, seem to satisfy the critics. Especially the atheistic ones.  Offer the most compelling - (well, to me )- that my Supplier made us, and a chorus arises from beyond the hedges. No. It has to be 'nature' they shout.

We come from the Primordial Soup !

China out-Big Brothers Big Brother

Written by

George Orwell's 1984 surveillance-state is an oft-quoted reference when speaking of threats to our freedoms in the 21st century. But Orwell could never have imagined the technology that was just around the corner when he wrote his book 150 years ago. Data collection via social media, coupled with face and gait recognition, and almost unlimited data storage mean that every person on the planet can potentially be monitored in real time for the most nefarious purposes. China is leading the world in this kind of surveillance, which is aimed at modifying the behaviour of its citizens. With 200,000,000 (that's two hundred million) surveillance cameras, every action is evaluated and entered into China's Social Credit System.

Our Children Need Protection NOW

Written by

This article was written by Jack Sonnemann, whom I had the pleasure of knowing when I lived in Tasmania. Jack's tireless work to protect children from the effects of pornography is well-known both here in Australia and in his home-country of the United States. Here's how his bio read when he appeared at the 2016 Coalition to End Sexual Exploitation Summit in Houston Texas:

"Jack Sonnemann says we cannot win the war if we do not fight the battles. He has been fighting the "Winnable War" against sexual exploitation in Australia for over 30 years. His organisation, the Australian Federation for the Family (AFF), produces a newsletter (and blog) read by thousands of concerned Australians.
He has appeared in all the major media Down Under. Playboy's Australian editor was fired after debating Mr Sonnemann on national television and he has been ridiculed, attacked and demeaned in virtually all of Australia's porn publications. Playboy magazine is now bankrupt in Australia due to AFF's sustained boycott campaigns of its advertisers and retailers. Sonnemann's actions have resulted in the banning of all X Rated material on Pay TV services in Australia (the only country in the Western World that can make this claim!); stopping the use of 15, 16 and 17 year-olds in all Australian porn; defeating Australia's once vibrant Dial-a-Porn industry; closing X Rated bookshops and stopping applications for new ones; initiating and passing legislation to close houses of prostitution and stopping the once-common use of child magnets and pseudo-child imagery in all Australian porn.
AFF has been successful in a raft of measures regulating the sale and display of porn in the family marketplace nationwide. He is currently lobbying to enact Opt-In laws for internet porn and for the Territory governments to enact the same law banning the sale, hire an display of X Rated DVDs as now exists in each state of Australia. The X Rated DVDs that are banned in each state are freely and legally available in Australia's two territories and are literally devastating the native Aboriginal population.
Mr Sonnemann regularly appears before Federal and State parliamentary forums and public meetings documenting the harm caused by pornography, prostitution, etc."
