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.
A recent article in the Daily Telegraph “IVF clinics records increase in unattached single women wanting to become mothers” (28/7/19) reports that 8% of IVF recipients are single women. It expresses that there is a growing number of single women who are seeking IVF treatment because they are unable to find the right male to procreate and are willing to raise children on their own.
Raising children when you are in a relationship is no easy feat therefore one cannot ignore the fact that raising a child as a single parent would be even harder. We often hear in the media the struggles of single parenting such as child care costs, healthcare, food, shelter etc all on a single income. Thankfully we have a generous welfare system in Australia which allows people to receive single parent payment from the taxpayers as well as the child care rebate. Company’s also must provide people with maternity leave which allow the parent to be paid whilst looking after their pride and joy.
The issue here though is we often here the plight of single women raising children. Feminazi’s often get on the band wagon and plea that males do not pull their weight when it comes to child support. Women cry foul when Government cuts back on single parenting payments because Governments do not want to increase taxes to pay for the increasing demand of welfare. If we are seeing a rising trend in single women seeking IVF treatment to raise their children on their own, will see see a rise in women claiming the single parent payment from Centrelink? We will see women demand an increase in the single parent payment because these single women will not have a male to pay child support?
As a libertarian I don’t have a problem with women wanting to receive IVF treatment, nor do I have a problem with single women wanting to raise children on their own, but as a conservative I have a problem with taxpayers funding for someone elses children.
As a conservative libertarian I support the Australian Government’s plan for company tax cuts. I believe that more money in the hands of business means they can invest more on the progression of their business. This progression means more staff, more infrastructure and more innovation which all leads to growth within an economy. Singapore has a company tax rate of 17% compared to Australia’s 30% – they are our close neighbors. US President Trump recently cut their company tax rates down to 21% from 35%. If Australia wants to be competitive within the world market we ought to do something about our company taxes and given that Singapore is in close proximity to Australia, one must not be surprised if company’s invest more there.
Pauline Hanson’s One Nation (PHON) holds crucial votes in trying to pass this dynamic move by the Federal Government. Senator Hanson – Leader of PHON – who once supported the cuts, decided to pull her support and implemented a set of demands. In terms of political capital this can only benefit PHON as it can demonstrate they can negotiate whilst flexing their muscles.
Senator Hanson’s demands are issues which are ‘red hot’ amongst voters. Immigration is spiraling out of control and we are seeing migrants not assimilating and thus creating ghetto’s; pensioners are struggling to keep warm over winter because they can’t afford their power bills yet we seem to give billions of dollars in foreign aid. These issues are real and PHON – rightly so – have managed to find a way to address these issues through negotiating with the Government over it’s company tax cut plan.
Today, PHON Senator Brian Burston has announced that he will go against the will of his leader and support these company tax cuts. Senator Burston’s move have done nothing to help the One Nation cause. In fact many media outlets are reporting that One Nation is divided and Hanson herself has come out swinging against him, hinting that he probably wont be pre-selected for NSW Senate ticket at the next Federal Election. Senator Burston has been poorly advised on this issue. This issue goes beyond company tax cuts, it goes deep into the soul of what One Nation wants to achieve as a political force within the senate. On the other hand, Pauline Hanson herself should have shut down any suggestion that there is a rift and kept this in house.
Senator Burston is a honourable man. What he says and what he does he truly believes in but in politics sometimes it’s important to hold your tongue to ensure the greater good is achieved. The greater good by holding back on supporting these great tax cuts is that PHON could have achieved a serious conversation about immigration, energy policy and the living standards of our pensioners. Unfortunately PHON looks like a divided political party on the brink of destruction.
NSW Liberals are fighting again. The dying breed of conservatives are continually losing ground as there is a push to oust former PM Tony Abbott from his Warringah seat and outspoken conservative, Craig Kelly – member for Hughes – is also facing an uphill battle from a former labor wannabe Kent Johns.
Kent Johns is the Party’s Vice President but in 1995 he was elected as a Labor Councillor for Rockdale. In 2002 he resigned from Labor and joined the Liberal Party. He was elected as a Liberal Councillor in 2004 in Sutherland Council and today he is rallying up support for pre-selection for the seat of Hughes. The left within the party are not even trying to hide their hatred towards Conservatism, the fact they have put a former labor stooge against a conservative firebrand such as Craig Kelly demonstrates that they will do anything to destroy any right wing element of the Party.
Last year the majority of Liberal Party members voted that they wanted to see party reform. There was a cascade of relief when this occured and Sky News program ‘The Outsiders’ had democratic freedom fighter John Ruddick on the show feeling optimistic about this symbolic gesture saying that he will rejoin the party. At the following State Council meeting, left wing delegates voted on a watered down version of the reform, proving that the left do not want to give up control. Why would they?
The Liberal Party is doomed due to their organisational woes. Whilst it is comforting that we have the likes of Peter Dutton, Tony Abbott and Craig Kelly in the fold, they are all facing uphill battles. Once the left ousts Abbott and Kelly, the few conservatives that are left within the Liberal Party will be voiceless and will have no choice but to tow the party line. Whilst Ruddick maybe optimistic about the future of the Liberal Party and it’s potential reforms, evidence is proving that the Party is spiraling out of control to the depths of left wing dystopia.
Manjula: Apu, it’s 4 am. You’re late for work.
Apu: Oh. I just had the most beautiful dream where I died.
Manjula: Oh no you don’t! Not til they’re out of college.
Apu: Listen, I’ll die when I want to!
Season 11, Episode 7, Eight misbehavin’
And with a little bit of push by cultral lefties, Apu dies in 2018.
For 29 years from 1989 until 2018, Apu has been on our screens. Actor Hank Azaria has done the voice of Apu from day one. Recently, Hank has come out and states that he will hand over his wobbly head character’s voice to an actual ‘Indian’ stating that he is saddened to hear Indians being bullied because of his Apu voice, he further mentions that he would like to listen to Indian people and to bring in Indian writers into the writers room. Well where was this opinion 29 years ago? 19 years ago? 9 years ago? or even 2 years ago? This phenomenon is not new, it’s not like Apu is a new character in the Simpsons and is there any anecdotal evidence that racial disharmony is caused by Apu?
Given the rise of the alt-left in America it is no wonder why Hank has had a sudden change around. Their bullying tactics gives anyone the heeby jeebies. I guess for Hank Azaria, he has made his fame and the fact the Simpsons is close to a finale he doesn’t give a shit who does the voice for Apu.
For those who are not snowflakes and are not ‘offended’ by ‘cultural appropriation’ cause lets be honest only pussies are offended by this shit, there is always hope in Seth McFarlane. Family Guy does not hold back on political correctness.
RIP APU – your dream has come true!!
Malcolm Turnbull is hated in Australian politics. Within the Liberal Party he is hated as much as Bill Shorten. The fact he has lost 30 Newspolls in a row has proven that he is an unpopular Prime Minister. This experiment of having a left wing leader of a centre right political party has failed them miserably, however choosing a conservative to lead the party now is fraught with danger.
Conservatives within the Liberal Party are wanting the likes of either Abbott or Dutton to take over the reigns, whilst this could be a dream come true, it would spell the end of their political careers. The Liberal Party is spiralling out of control in terms of polling, it doesn’t matter what they do, the electorate wants a change, and to be honest who can blame them.
The issue I see is that whoever takes over the Liberal Party will have maybe 18months to try and change their electoral woes. Given that our Senate is rather hostile due to the dynamics of the crossbench it will be hard for any leader to push their electoral agenda. The only way in which a new leader could survive is to call a double dissolution within the first couple of months of their newly appointed leadership, the issue with this is if re-elected, the Senate could be more hostile than it already is.
If the Liberal Party do decide to bite the bullet and oust Turnbull, in my opinion they should choose Julie Bishop (should she decide to put her hand up). There are a number of reasons why but the main reason is, as mentioned previously, whoever leads the Liberal Party will no doubt end up lose the next Federal Election. The biggest thorn for the conservatives are progressives and Bishop is one of those thorns. If she leads the party at the next election to a defeat, she is more than likely to leave Parliament. It has been tradition that if you are voted out as PM you gracefully leave politics. With Turnbull and Bishop gone, the conservatives can rebuild and in opposition if we see a conservative as leader, it will give Shorten a run for his money.
In essence, conservatives within the Liberal Party need to calm their farm, work with the left and choose an alternative ‘moderate’ leader such as Julie Bishop. Let her go down in flames like Turnbull and then make their move. Do not waste good talented politicians like Dutton on this term of Government.
TRIGGER WARNING!!: This opinion is not discussing pro or anti gun control but merely the reasons why Australians should not be so emotive about this issue. For the reasons outlined in this opinion is the reason why there will be no opinion on gun control on theseedweekly.net
There are calls amongst many Australian’s that the US should adopt stronger gun laws similar to that of Australia. The latest mass shooting massacre at Parkland High School has created a swell of protest in America, but the concerning aspect of all of this is the increasing interference of emotions by Australian’s. Everyday on social media Australian’s are posting memes, statuses, videos and news reports in support of pro gun control, whilst this is a noble gesture and the fact that no one wants to see children being shot up like a practice target, Australian’s need to remember that guns are part and parcel of American way of life whether they like it or not.
In Islamic countries such as Saudi Arabia, Afghanistan and Iran it is punishable by death to be homosexual. In Iran, women are treated like second class citizens and must wear a head scarf or a veil. In Afghanistan it is illegal to criticise any aspect of islam and the punishment is rather severe. We don’t see Australian’s post memes, statuses, videos and news reports on social media condemning these acts of cultural bastardry, yet there is an over abundance of attack on the American culture. Many Australian’s are not bothered about the draconian laws of Islamic nations because they feel it is non of their business then why feel the need to comment on America’s unique culture?
The second amendment states that;
A well regulated militia being necessary to the security of a free state, the right of the people to keep and bear arms shall not be infringed.
This amendment which was authenticated by Thomas Jefferson was adopted in December of 1791. It is no secret that most American’s love their Country and their Bill of Rights which gives them the title of being Patriotic (which disgusts the left). Given that this amendment has been ingrained within the American psyche for just over 226 years and as American’s love their country, one cannot push change over night. Many Australian’s think that because Australia was able to change it’s laws so quickly that America can do the same thing, the difference being is that Australian’s never really had a love affair of guns as it was not a constitutional right, if it was a constitutional right, former Prime Minister John Howard would not have been able to adopt his hard stance as there was a good chance it would have been rejected. Since 1901 in Australia there have been 44 referendums (constitutional changes) only 8 of these were successful, the last referendum was in 1998 to make Australia a republic. These failures are living proof that people are cautious of change and to expect American’s to change their thought process over night is nothing but hypocrisy being displayed by many Australian’s.
Whether you believe in tight gun control or not, it is difficult to change a mindset over night especially when it has been part and parcel of their culture for at least 226 years. Australian’s need to take a chill pill and understand that it isn’t as easy as just banning guns as there are many factors that need to be examined. Only American’s can start this change if they want change, this change cannot be forced on them otherwise they will rebel against the system. If American’s want change they need to own it and only then will they accept their fate.
