Alex Jones is not my cup of tea. For those who don’t know Alex Jones he is the voice behind InfoWars – an alt-media outlet for those who don’t fit into the mainstream media narrative. Alex Jones has some bizarre conspiracy theories such as believing the government is making frogs gay or Michelle Obama is actually a man (although that could explain a few things). The fact is, Jones is an entertaining character and whilst I didn’t listen to him, the stuff that I did hear was actually amusing. InfoWars do produce some good personalities such as Paul Joseph Watson. Watson, who has a Youtube page, is very good at articulating arguments for the right, he breaks down the issue and uses logic to make his argument.
Apple have recently announced that they have BANNED Jone’s podcasts on their app. Facebook, Spotify and Youtube have also jumped on the BANNING bandwagon and axed the InfoWar giant from it’s platform citing that he goes against their policy on “HATE SPEECH.” This ought to be concerning for anyone who goes against the ‘mainstream’ narrative. The fact we have seen major globalist organisations such as Apple, Facebook and Youtube stifle free speech clearly indicates that they are concerned that people are actually listening to alt-media sources. Given the rise of anti globalist politicans such as Donald Trump, Nigel Farage and Gert Wilders, it is no suprise that the globalist elite are wanting to rid social media or free media of alt-media sources.
Paul Joseph Watson has just released a video on Youtube describing this action by these tech companies as ‘the purge.’ He goes on to state that all within 12 hours of each other these companies have colluded to shut down InfoWars. He pointed that that no tech company gave any specific reasons as to why they shut Jones down, all they stated was that he goes against their policy on “HATE SPEECH.” Watson also goes on to state that this has occurred three months before the mid terms commence. Coincidence?
There has often been debates over President Trumps tweets, some on the left want him banned from tweeting, Trump himself doesn’t trust ‘fakenews’ outlets such as CNN to provide a fair and balance report therefore Trump thrives on alt-media outlets and has embraced the use of social media to get his message out. This action by these major tech companies have set a precedence to ban anyone who they feel breaches the ‘mainstream’ narrative. Who will be next to be on the chopping block? Rebel Media who house Lauren Southern or The Daily Wire who champion Ben Shapiro?
We live in a modern society which even George Orwell couldn’t fictionalise. The growing pains of supressing free speech is becoming terminal. Instead of banning things we do not like, we need to confront it head on. Its the same with Alex Jones, just because you do not like him does not mean we should ban him. If the Globalists want to defeat him then argue against him but we all know that this has nothing to do with disagreeing with Jones. Its far more sinister, it is a plan to manipulate free speech to ensure they control the masses.
Well well well, the National Party have shown their true colours this weekend. There was a motion before their National Conference wanting to ban the burqa in public spaces. The Burqa, which is a sign of oppression, covers the face of women (or men) which often can be used for sinister purposes and is potential to be a threat to National Security. Nationals MP George Christensen was pushing for the National Party to ban the Burqa but unfortunately the lefty trolls within the Nats voted against it 55-51.
The National Party in Australia is known to be the Liberal Party lap dog. They have no real policies but ride on the back of the Liberal Party. Sadly the National Party is just a country wing of the Libs which is concerning for long term members of the National Party. The rise of One Nation, Australian Conservatives and in NSW the Shooters, Fishers and Farmer’s Party one would have thought the National Party would have dumped the Liberal Party and be a true centre right alternative. There was somewhat hope for the Nats when Barnaby Joyce became leader. When he was in the Senate he was a straight shooter Senator and did not care about political correctness. These days Joyce is just the twiddledum to the Liberals twiddledee.
To those who are dissapointed in the National Party’s decision to reject Christensen’s motion, there is a better way. Don’t be a Liberal hound dog, you will always be welcome to join the fastest growing political party in Australia. The Australian Conservatives.
A couple of weeks ago I wrote that I don’t really give a toss if same sex marriage win’s or loses. I still stand by that. I do however believe that this is a contentious issue and rightly so and therefore people should have a vote on it. One thing I didn’t mention is my voting intention. On the topic of same sex marriage I will be voting No. I will be voting no, not because ‘I’m homophobic’ or a ‘bigot’ or ‘hitler’ or because I don’t want equality, Im voting no because of the reasons why people voted for Brexit and Donald Trump. Supporters for same sex marriage will no doubt condemn me for this, and I can take it but when you see people being abused for not ‘conforming’ to the status quo or being bullied and harassed for their views, out of protest (maybe it is the Taurus in me) I tend to dig my heels in.
It was reported by The Australian (1/9/2017) that Liberal Party Vice President Karina Oketel who is from Sri Lanka has experienced worst bigotry over her views on same sex marriage than any racist labels she has endured. Ms Oketel told The Australian she has been racially vilified for her skin colour in the past but that was mild compared to when she defends the current marriage act.
This kind of bigotry coming from the Yes campaigners is disturbing. I have seen first hand on social media that the Yes campaigner’s do not even want to understand why people are voting no. They just want to shut down debate.
Now the arguments made by those who are against same sex marriage can be debated. Safe Schools, Polygamy marriages, Incestrous marriages all these things can happen without same sex marriage. In fact Safe Schools is happening now but without proper debate these issues will continue to burn up until the last person sends off their voting papers.
The continual bigotry and the hatred on those from the Yes side will mean people will just vote no. Do not tell me how to vote. Do not say voting No is wrong. Do not undermine my democratic right to have self thought. We are not living in George Orwell’s 1984. We are living in a liberal democratic society of 2017. This is why I am voting no.
Western Civilisation is changing. Its political landscape is becoming more defined. We are seeing the rise of feral politics and it is primarily coming from the left. That’s not to say the right is innocent. What we have seen from the alt-left are actions that mirror anarchy and disorder through the notion of fascism. Kathy Griffin for example holding a severed head of US President Donald Trump is nothing more than feral politics. There is one group that is going one step further and their actions somewhat mirror Islamic State. That group is ANTIFA.
ISIS is an extremist Islamic terror group; their goal is to install an Islamic state worldwide in its purest form thus implementing all aspects of Sharia Law. Their actions have been so extreme that we have seen ISIS militants setting fires within a Philippine church and destroy statues of Mary and St Joseph. They have threatened to come to Rome and do the same. In the Philippine city of Marawi, ISIS militants have been fighting against Government forces for control of the city having total disregard for the current political elite. Many ISIS militants often wear black which resembles their flag and consistently wear masks to cover their faces.
Approximately 8,500km’s away in Syria, ISIS militants have released photos of them destroying ancient ruins of Palmyra and shrines near the site. Their view is that they consider these ruins and shrines as creations of pre-Islamic idolaters. The end result of this action is to change history which ultimately keeps the community at bay and if anyone questions this they will be killed.
ANTIFA is an organisation made up of far left – or the alt-left – individuals. ANTIFA stands for anti-fascists. In Australia they aren’t much of a problem however in the United States they have been very vocal in their opposition to the current political and socio-economic climate. One of their goals is to coordinate activism and to work with the media to shape public opinions. How they do this is ironically fascist. In Charlottesville we experienced ANTIFA wearing black clothes and masks to cover their faces. They used violence, destroying public and personal property to ensure they get media cover. Most recently the ANTIFA militants have been seen pulling down confederate statues stating that these statues are a sign of racism and oppression. These actions are to change history and if anyone who questions this they will be labelled a bigot or a racist.
I have been criticised by comparing ISIS to ANTIFA but the matter of fact is they are very similar. Whilst ANTIFA have not yet gone out of their way to behead individuals their underlying actions one could argue are correlated.
|Wear black clothing and cover their faces
||Wear black clothing and cover their faces
|Implement Sharia Law
||Implement a Marxist agenda
|Destroy buildings, monuments, shrines etc
||Destroys personal and public property, monuments
|Kill people for not conforming to ISIS
||Created negative labels to place on people who do not conform to their agenda
|Use of violence
||Use of violence
|Don’t like the current establishment and want to change it.
||Don’t like the current establishment and want to change it.
Both ISIS and ANTIFA have agenda’s, they will go out of their way to force this agenda on you. They mask their identity, they have no regard for your property, they will attack you if you don’t agree with them and they don’t like Western Culture. This should be a wakeup call, the alt-left won’t stop until they win.
In the peoples republic of Victoria we have witnessed two local councils move a motion to ban Australia Day celebrations from 26th January to another date. This is nothing more than a politically correct move by the alt left to destroy Australia’s dynamic and prosperous history. Whilst everyone is salivating over this move I do want to remind people that local governments cannot and will not ever change Australia Day.
There are approximately 546 local councils in Australia. At this stage only three local councils have expressed that they will not support Australia Day on the 26th January. That is less than 1% of councils that are pushing this move. Whilst I agree that the City of Fremantle; City of Yarra and the City of Darebin should focus more attention on local government issues such as parks, bins, libraries and rates their alt left agenda is falling on deaf ears. Prime Minister Malcolm Turnbull was angered by Yarra’s decision and decided to strip them off their Citizenship Ceremonies. The Labor Party on the other hand have been quiet on this issue and given that they are competing with the Greens over votes I would suspect that if we see a Labor Federal Government that is when we should be concerned. In saying that, in 2016, Opposition Leader Bill Shorten stated that labor had no plans to change the date of Australia Day but was relaxed in having the conversation.
As a free market, free speech kinda guy, I don’t have an issue in having a conversation on this issue. A conversation on it means that we can dismiss the alt-left’s PC madness. I do urge however the right not to sharpen their knives just yet. Local Government has no real say in the matter. I would however urge the right to monitor the Federal Labor Party’s footsteps on this issue. According to the Polls they will be our next Government this is when we need to start sharping our knives.
As a supporter for direct democracy and a former member of the Liberal Party, I welcome the grassroots support of the Warringah motion to allow all party members a say in the preselection process. It is humbling to see Prime Minister Malcolm Turnbull and NSW Premier Gladys Berejiklian also getting behind the Warringah motion given their previous allegiances to the so called moderates. One must understand, however, that this victory is just a smoke screen to the bigger woes of the Liberal Party.
The Futures Convention which was held at Rosehill on 22nd and 23rd July 2017 allowed grassroots members a vote on a motion which will democratise the Party. The problem with this convention is that any motion passed is not binding, meaning that the Party’s governing body – State Council and the State Executive – can reject this move. According to news reports 748 people voted yes for the Warringah motion compared to 476 who voted no. That is approximately 61% of people who want party reform the other 39% either don’t want it or want a watered down version. It is still staggering that 39% of people within the Liberal Party do not believe in democratic reform, this figure is alarming and the right who wanted democratic reform should not be cheering just yet.
It is to my understanding that factions that are not controlled by the right, control the State Council and have a majority on the State Executive. If you have control of a governing political party you would do everything you can to hold onto that power. This is why I fail to see any resolve in this issue. When it comes to the crunch in a couple of months time at a State Council meeting you can better your bottom dollar that the Warringah motion will either be rejected or amended to suit the powers to be. If this happens, some on the right are championing the thought of the Federal Executive to intervene. If the Federal Executive of the Liberal Party decides to intervene then this whole process will be drawn out. If anyone knows anything about the internal workings of the Liberal Party or any political party for that matter things don’t happen overnight.
Meanwhile in the real world, hard working Australians are being taxed through their nose and cost of living is rising; taxpayers money is being wasted on useless government programs; we see the rise and rise of green and red tape on businesses in Australia; we see a rising threat of radical islam and immigration spiralling out of control, all this under an alleged conservative Liberal Government. As mentioned previously the issue of democratising the Liberal Party is good but the problem within the Liberal Party goes beyond Party reform. It goes right down into the depths of what does the Liberal Party really stand for? Whilst the Liberals are playing politics we have a group of Conservatives that have joined together to work on the issues that hold dear to most Australians. The Australian Conservatives.
I would urge all those within the NSW Liberal Party who want democratic reform to make a wise decision to join the Australian Conservatives. The NSW Liberal Party will never embrace party reform and if they do then you still have to deal with lefties from other states. Stop wasting your time and join a new political revolution. There is a better way.
2017 will see the demise the of Liberal Party as we knew it. No longer will it be a centre-right party espousing a broad-church base, instead it will be an extreme centre or mild centre left party with a base that is made up of progressive moderates. Many conservative members of the Liberal Party have resigned. Some have decided to go with another political party and others are waiting to see what progresses so that they can find their new home. As far as I can see, there are three alternatives in our political landscape which could house ex liberal members. Lets call them the three disciples. Together they are The Triangle of Hope.
On the bottom far right side of the Triangle of Hope we see Pauline Hanson’s One Nation. One Nation has proven to be an effective player on the electoral scene. Social policies such as climate change, tough immigration, tough on crime, and tough on welfare attracts conservatives however their economic viewpoints – which historically united the liberals – veers to the left of politics. They do believe in protectionism on industry and they aren’t fond of free trade. This could be a major turn off for conservatives. Many conservatives believe in economic freedom therefore no regulations should interfere with economic progress. On the other hand to give credit where it is due, Pauline Hanson and One Nation have treated many economic issues on merit rather than having a blanket rule approach. For example One Nation does not believe in foreign ownership, however they do support the Adani Coal Mine in Townsville. This shows that One Nation is willing to negotiate for the good of the nation in particularly when it comes to jobs. Organisationally however Pauline Hanson’s One Nation belongs to Pauline Hanson. It is her Party. This will not gel with conservatives. One of the main reasons why many conservatives within the Liberal Party are leaving is because the membership is not allowed a voice. If One Nation wants to pick up these conservative votes then they need to change their organisational structure. Otherwise conservatives will look to others within the Triangle of Hope.
On the bottom far left side of the Triangle of Hope we see the Liberal Democratic Party. The LDP have a libertarian slant to their policies. They stand for low taxes, small government and individual responsibility. This sounds more like a conservative party however whilst they may feel at home with their economic viewpoints they may struggle to comprehend their social policies. The LDP do believe in legalising same sex marriage (but protecting religions from being sued if they refuse to marry same sex couples), legalisation of drugs, prostitution, abortions and euthanasia. At the end of the day they believe that humans should be free to make decisions about their own lives without the nanny state interfering. Whilst conservatives don’t believe in the ‘nanny state’ as such these policies are not something conservatives feel strongly about, many conservatives despise prostitution, abortions and euthanasia. As for the organisational structure of the LDP it is not based on personalities unlike Pauline Hanson’s One Nation. All members have a say and this is a potential win for conservatives.
Is there a better way? Finally on top of the Triangle of Hope we see the Australian Conservatives. A newly formed Conservative Party founded by former Liberal Senator Cory Bernardi. The Party believes in advocating for building a sustainable and prosperous economy and maintaining civil society. What does this mean? Well as the Party has just only been founded there are no exact policies on issues however when you go through Hansard and other media outlets and you read up on Senator Cory Bernardi, you will find that he believes in the free market, limited Government, personal responsibility, and a civil society (traditional Judeo-Christian values). The party also believes in democratic processes therefore according to it’s website, all party members will have a say on party matters. According to Paul Murray Live (3/7/2017) the Australian Conservatives in NSW have already reached 4,000 members, this is impressive hence why it is on top of the Triangle of Hope.
Conservatives in Australia have a choice. They could continue to stick with the Liberal Party and be frustrated with being powerless and support leftist policies such as the folly of renewable energy targets, open borders and gay marriage. Alternatively they could consider the Triangle of Hope. Australian Conservatives, Liberal Democrats and Pauline Hanson’s One Nation. These three disciples have potential to shape our nation. There are options and there is a better way.
