Yes, even in Australia ‘The woke-left is emboldened. Conservative voices are deplatformed, western culture is cancelled, statues are toppled and history is rewritten. Conservatism is under attack. But what can you do?CPAC was launched in 2019 to provide a platform for conservatives to gather and discuss ideas without harassment over wrong-think. It’s for all of us who believe that true freedom is built upon free speech, free markets and a free society. But we know that others don’t share these values. Last year CPAC was attacked by the Labor Party through Senator’s Kristina Keneally, Penny Wong and opposition leader Anthony Albanese. Antifa and Socialist Alliance also sent their goons to demonstrate at CPAC, to yell abuse and to threaten violence. Then the bureaucrats came. They colluded with Labor to threaten the organiser with jail for failing to comply with demands that were impossible to meet. We know what the left want to do and they are doing it.’https://www.cpacaustralia.org/
Genesis 8:22 While the earth remaineth, seedtime and harvest, and cold and heat, and summer and winter, and day and night shall not cease.
‘Recently we were breathlessly warned that Ottawa was rocketing up the lists for most days over 30° C. Yes, folks, in early July the nation’s capital shot from 79th to 68th place with 60th in sight. And by late July it was all the way up to 29th place. But the odd thing is that the top 5 years were all… (in ascending order) 1911, 1949, 1921, 1955 and 1876. Spot the pattern? Nor could we.
Famously, if you generate a set of readings using random numbers, even simply flipping a coin, you get pseudo-patterns, like those apparent paths in the woods that peter out after a few meters or tens of meters. Sometimes heads are on a roll, coming up eight times in 10. Sometimes tails. But for that reason a few hot years is not a trend (nor are a few cool ones) even if they’re not linked to some non-climate-related cause like an El Nino.
If someone throws dice a dozen times and gets seven every time, you might start wondering if they possibly tampered with them. And if you really did get a reliable pattern where the years kept getting hotter with minor fluctuations, you could reasonably suggest that something was going on, though even then you’d have to do a more plausible job of filtering out natural cycles than the computer models that just assume they don’t exist. But when you’re breathlessly closing in on a temperature record from 1921, it means the square root of nothing at all. Especially if 3rd place is held by 1916, 4th by 1955, 5th by 2018 and 6th by 1887. It’s the sort of thing you’d get from a monkey throwing darts.
Then there’s the hype. For instance back on Canada Day BC set several records for high temperature. But you probably didn’t hear much about them because Vancouver’s record was for the lowest high temperature on Canada Day since 1960, just 14.8 °C, the average being 21. Now imagine if Vancouver had broken the previous high with a temperature seven degrees above average.
In Chilliwack it was even more remarkable: the high of 13.5 °C was the lowest in recorded history, a term here meaning “in 139 years”. Which got us curious, so we had a look around. Seems that if you go east from Chilliwack, which is now essentially a suburb of Vancouver, into the B.C. interior, Summerland and nearly Kelowna, the town whose mayor blamed the 2017 flooding and wildfires on climate change, also both set records in June. Also for low daily highs. Kelowna’s 12.8° C high on June 14 beat the 1912 record by over 2 degrees, while Summerland shaved half a degree off its 1912 record.
Then we checked the average temperatures for neighboring Washington State since 1895 and found that the hottest by a whole degree was 2016. But in 2nd place was 1934 and in 3rd 1958 whereas 1915 was the coldest, 1955 2nd and 1985 3rd. 2018 was also quite warm, nearly as warm as 1940. But after 2015 temperature plunged and 2019 was less than half a degree above the long-term average. What does it all mean? That weather is variable.’https://climatediscussionnexus.com/2020/07/29/hottest-since-the-last-one/
Marxist, Muslim, Leftist, Liberal, Lovie ‘…former President Barack Obama delivered the eulogy at late Congressman John Lewis’s (D-GA) funeral Thursday. Via the politicized address, the liberal media received their marching orders from their beloved leader: accuse President Trump of threatening the November the election and compare him to racist Alabama Governor George Wallace (D). And they celebrated him for it.
After noting that Obama’s presidency stood on the shoulders of Lewis’s work in the Civil Rights movement, NBC Nightly News anchor Lester Holt hyped how Obama “while not naming him, launching a forceful attack against President Trump.”
“George Wallace may be gone, but we can witness our federal government sending agents to use tear gas and batons against peaceful demonstrators,” Obama sneered during the nationally televised service.
Of course, the liberal media would push Obama’s drivel, it matched their narrative. He was claiming that the Portland riots and Antifa terrorism were just “peaceful demonstrators.”
Over on the CBS Evening News, anchor Norah O’Donnell fawned for Obama’s “rousing eulogy,” “saying those in power are trying to discourage voting.” And boasted that it was “a direct response to President Trump, who floated the idea today of delaying November’s election, something he doesn’t even have the power to do.”
CBS correspondent Michelle Miller (and wife to far-left National Urban League president Marc Morial) followed up for O’Donnell by playing a prolonged soundbite of Obama suggesting Trump was Wallace and all cops were Bull Connor.’https://newsbusters.org/blogs/nb/nicholas-fondacaro/2020/07/30/nets-celebrate-politicization-lewis-funeral-forceful-attack
Oh, the answer to the title of this blog; the difference between Obama, Antifa and BLM, is NOTHING!
The squeaky wheel gets the grease, so it goes. That’s so true in the mainline media news. ‘Few subjects more easily betray aggressive media bias than protests. If you’re a conservative protester, you’re most likely to be ignored. The networks mostly ignored this year’s prayerful “March for Life” in January, even though President Trump came in person, a historic first.
ABC anchor David Muir offered 15 seconds: “The President taking the stage at the anti- abortion rights rally. His administration threatening to withhold federal funds from California for requiring private insurers to cover abortions. California’s governor dismissing the threat.”
If conservative protesters are not ignored, they’re most likely to be portrayed as a menace to polite society….even when the protests are nonviolent. Ten years ago, when the Tea Party assembled on Capitol Hill to oppose the passage of Obamacare as unconstitutional, “ugly” was the network term for the tone of the protests.
“Late word from Washington tonight about just how ugly the crowds gathered outside the Longworth Office Building have become,” warned David Muir on March 20, 2010. “We learned that as Congressman Emanuel Cleaver of Missouri was leaving his office, someone in the crowd spit on him. There are also reports of racial and homophobic slurs, one targeting Congressman John Lewis, the famous civil rights champion, and the other involving Congressman Barney Frank. You can listen in for yourself.”
But Cleaver’s spitting claim and the yelling of the N-word were never proven. Andrew Breitbart pledged $100,000 to the United Negro College Fund if anyone provided proof of the N-words, and no one had the goods.
Over at CBS, anchor Bob Schieffer doubled down: “A yearlong debate that’s been rancorous and mean from the start turned even nastier yesterday.”
Let’s repeat: the accusations were that these “nasty” right-wingers said mean words. There was no looting, rioting, burning, vandalism, or violence. No one’s life or limbs were in danger.
Fast-forward ten years to 2020. Left-wingers in Portland and other cities are tearing things down, burning things up, and throwing projectiles at police. Hundreds of cops are being injured. Several suffered possibly permanent eye damage from high-powered lasers.
But the protesters (and rioters) are now on the Left, so the weasel words and the euphemisms flow. Reporters mumble about “mostly peaceful” protests. None of these “objective” referees measure the tone of the Left as possibly “rancorous and mean and nasty.” When you’re protesting police officers and federal security guards, there’s no need to offer dignified discourse.
Compare David Muir in 2010 to Muir on July 27: “Now to those protests turning violent. Demonstrators squaring off with federal officers in Portland, Oregon. Protests over racial injustice intensifying. Local leaders say the federal presence is only fueling this.”
Muir and his colleagues have a real chicken-or-the-egg problem here. Federal security officers arrived to defend federal property under attack from violent leftists. How is it that ABC is suddenly trying to sound “fair and balanced” when it comes to “local leaders” attempting to destroy a federal building, something we all fund with our taxes?
ABC’s Twitter account sounded even worse as leftists erupted in Oakland: “Protesters in California set fire to a courthouse, damaged a police station and assaulted officers after a peaceful demonstration intensified.” If someone punched David Muir in the face, would that be a “peaceful demonstration intensified”?
This double standard underscores what we have long known. The media offer no reward for conservatives and Republicans being nice and polite. The media seek to prevent any damage as the Left unleashes vicious invective and violence. But these manufacturers of “news” have the audacity to present themselves daily as the trustworthy referees of our democracy.’ https://papundits.wordpress.com/2020/07/31/big-city-rioting-is-no-tea-party-protest/
Revelation 13:17 And that no man might buy or sell, save he that had the mark, or the name of the beast, or the number of his name. How far off is this prophecy? Well, ‘If some Congress members get their way, the Federal Reserve may soon be able to track many of your purchases in real time and share that information with government agencies. This is just one of the problems with the proposed “digital dollar” or “fedcoin.”
Fedcoin was initially included in the first coronavirus spending bill. While the proposal was dropped from the final version of the bill, there is still great interest in fedcoin on Capitol Hill. Some progressives have embraced fedcoin as a way to provide Americans with a “universal basic income.”
Both the Senate Banking Committee and the House Financial Services Committee held hearings on fedcoin in June. This is the first step toward making fedcoin a reality.
Fedcoin would not be an actual coin. Instead, it would be a special account created and maintained for each American by the Federal Reserve. Each month, Fed employees could tap a few keys on a computer and — bingo — each American would have dollars added to his Federal Reserve account. This is the 21st century equivalent of throwing money from helicopters.
Fedcoin could effect private cryptocurrencies. Also, it would limit the ability of private citizens to protect themselves from the Federal Reserve-caused decline in the dollar’s value.
Fedcoin would not magically increase the number of available goods and services. What it would do is drive up prices. The damage this would do to middle- and lower-income Americans would dwarf any benefit they receive from their monthly “gift” from the Fed. The rise in prices could lead to Congress regularly increasing fedcoin payments to Americans. These increases would cause prices to keep rising even more until we face hyperinflation and a dollar crisis. Of course, we are already on the path to an economic crisis thanks to the Fed. Fedcoin will hasten and worsen the crisis.
Fedcoin poses a great threat to privacy. The Federal Reserve could know when fedcoin is used, who is using it, and what they use it for. This information could be shared with government agencies, such as the FBI or IRS.
The government could use the ability to know how Americans are spending fedcoin to limit our ability to purchase goods and services disfavored by politicians and bureaucrats. Anyone who doubts this should recall the Obama administration’s Operation Choke Point. Operation Choke Point involved financial regulators “alerting” banks that dealing with certain businesses, such as gun stores, would put the banks at “reputational risk” and could subject them to greater regulation.
Is it so hard to believe that the ability to track purchases would be used in the future to “discourage” individuals from buying guns, fatty foods, or tobacco, or from being customers of corporations whose CEOs are not considered “woke” by the thought police? Fedcoin could also be used to “encourage” individuals to patronize “green” business, thus fulfilling Fed Chair Jerome Powell’s goal of involving the Fed in the fight against climate change.
Fedcoin could threaten private cryptocurrencies, increase inflation, and give government new powers over our financial transactions. Fedcoin will also speed up destruction of the fiat money system. Whatever gain fedcoin may bring to average Americans will come at terrible cost to liberty and prosperity.’ http://www.ronpaulinstitute.org/archives/featured-articles/2020/july/27/fedcoin-a-new-scheme-for-tyranny-and-poverty/
‘Google CEO Sundar Pichai has defended the takedown of numerous videos of doctors sharing their opinions on the coronavirus from Google-owned video sharing platform YouTube.
During a House Judiciary Committee Hearing on antitrust law with Big Tech CEOs, Congressman Greg Steube said that in two separate instances he’d been sent YouTube links to videos featuring doctors sharing their opinion that the drug hydroxychloroquine is effective for the treatment of the coronavirus and that it’s appropriate for children to return back to school.
However, when Steube attempted to open the links and view the videos, he said the videos had been taken down for violating YouTube’s community guidelines.
Steube asked Pichai how doctors giving their opinion on a drug that they think is effective for the treatment of COVID-19 or sharing their opinion on it being appropriate for children to return to school violates YouTube’s community guidelines.
Pichai responded by insisting that Google believes in freedom of expression and that there’s a lot of debate on YouTube about effective ways to deal with the coronavirus but that during the pandemic, if a doctor’s advice conflicts with the guidance from local health authorities on medical misinformation, YouTube will take it down.
“We look to local health authorities, so for example, in the US it would be CDC [Centers for Disease Control and Prevention], for guidelines around medical misinformation in a narrow way which could cause harm in the real world,” Pichai said.
Steube challenged Pichai and said that the doctor’s comments on YouTube are free expression of speech:
“I don’t understand why YouTube and therefore Google thinks it’s appropriate to silence physicians and their opinion of what can help then cure people with COVID-19.”
Steube didn’t cite the specific videos he was referring to but numerous videos from doctors have been removed by YouTube amid the coronavirus pandemic this year including a press conference from America’s Frontline Doctors, an anti-lockdown video from doctors, and the Dr. Judy Mikovits Plandemic documentary.
While there is often debate over the most effective treatment options in the field of medicine, Google and other tech giants are aggressively enforcing their policy of censoring anything that goes against the advice of local health authorities such as the CDC.
Pichai’s statements are the latest of several that have reaffirmed YouTube’s position of relying on health authorities such as the CDC and the World Health Organization (WHO) instead of the merits or qualifications of the person producing the video.
Some of these health authorities that are being used by the tech giants as arbiters of truth have infamously changed their recommendations and contradicted their own previous advice on the coronavirus. For example, the CDC went from recommending people don’t wear masks to calling for people to wear masks.
Not only are the recommendations of these health authorities being used to decide which videos go down but YouTube CEO Susan Wojcicki has also stated that news coverage determines whether videos from doctors get reinstated.
Wojcicki justified this policy by stating that news coverage provides “context” that can then lead to the video being reinstated.’ https://reclaimthenet.org/sundar-youtube-censorship-doctors/
This video caused a petition to be made to the Parliament of the Australian state of Queensland. People will believe almost anything but the Words of God.
‘TO: The Honourable the Speaker and Members of the Legislative Assembly of Queensland
Queensland residents draws to the attention of the House certain religious organisations operating in Queensland have a prime belief that a supreme being created the Earth about 6000 years ago. This is an anathema to many sciences and in particular to Aboriginal culture which is 60,000 to 120,000 years old. The creationist religions effectively deny Aboriginal history and culture thereby breaching our racist vilification laws.
Your petitioners, therefore, request the House to ensure that religious organisations preaching that a supreme being created the Earth about 6000 years ago not receive any State government assistance, exemptions, subsidies or funding.’ https://www.parliament.qld.gov.au/work-of-assembly/petitions/petition-details?id=3380

LGBTIQ Community Grants Program: Organisational grants
Up to $80,000 in support for organisational development, capacity building and sustainability of LGBTIQ organisations and groups.
Pride Events and Festivals Fund
Up to $10,000 is available to contribute to LGBTI events in Victoria.’ https://www.vic.gov.au/lgbtiq-equality-grants
Genesis 13:13 But the men of Sodom were wicked and sinners before the LORD exceedingly.
Genesis 19:24 Then the LORD rained upon Sodom and upon Gomorrah brimstone and fire from the LORD out of heaven;
When is a man a woman and when is a woman a woman? Well, ‘When Australians agreed to change the definition of marriage they probably didn’t think a change to the definition of woman would follow.
But rainbow politics is relentless.
Like coronavirus, rainbow gender fluid theory has jumped from our “Safe Schools” to the once respected Australian Academy of Science which inhabits Canberra’s iconic Shine Dome.
The academy has decreed that a woman is “anyone who identifies as a woman”.
I kid you not.
If you thought a woman had a vagina, breasts and XX chromosomes, think again.
Someone with a penis, normally referred to as a man, whose “personal gender identity does not correspond with sex assigned at birth” can be a woman our scientists now tell us.
Apparently, we’ve been wrongly “assigning” babies their gender just because they were born with certain biological physical features.
It gets worse. This new definition of woman appears as part of the noble push to get more women into science, technology, engineering and mathematics (STEM).
It is contained in the glossary on page 58 of the academy’s Women in STEM Decadal Plan.
It goes without saying that in today’s PC rainbow fascist world you are a bigot if you disagree.
For the record, the glossary was silent on the definition of man.
It’s almost like the Women in STEM Decadal Plan is tailor-made for mediocre male scientists who might be looking for a career leg up by changing their gender identity.
Heck, they wouldn’t even have to have surgery or take oestrogen.
Like women and girls striving to compete with biological men under transgender guidelines released by Sports Minister Rickard Colbeck last year, women scientists seeking to get ahead in STEM now may also have to make way for biological males.
As Bernard Lane, who broke the story pointed out, the academy’s president John Shine is using the current Covid-19 crisis to campaign for accurate science against “made-up stuff”.
Evolutionary biologist Madeleine Beekman, a professor at the University of Sydney, said the academy had departed from biological fact.
“I find it very surprising that it comes from the academy of science, which should be based on science and not on some social, political agenda — so, I’m shocked, actually,” she told The Australian.
As Lane also pointed out, the Women in STEM Decadal Plan is paid for by the taxpayer. That’s you and me, folks.
Why the gender whisperers are running amok in our schools, sporting clubs and in our scientific institutions on the watch of a Liberals and Nationals government is mystifying.
If courage does not exist to take on this foolish and harmful ideology now, when will it?
LNP parliamentarians like Senator Amanda Stoker from Queensland are trying, but it is a measure of the power of the rainbow political lobby that so little progress is being made seven years since the Coalition was elected.
Gender dysphoria is real but so is anorexia. Both afflictions involve people thinking something about themselves that is not real.
The last thing women need is for politicians and now scientists to buy into a world that is not real. FACEBOOK TWITTER EMAIL‘ https://www.lyleshelton.com.au/a_woman_can_have_a_penis_says_australian_academy_of_science
So, you too thought it was government’s place to chiefly protect and provide certain services for its citizens. Well, you were wrong, as I was. In the Australian state of Victoria they see it also is their job as a state government ‘…to help shape the state’s equality agenda for years to come, with the opening of public consultation on the Victorian Government’s first ever whole of government LGBTIQ strategy.
Over the past five years, the Victorian Government has created a more inclusive Victoria by reforming legislation to remove discrimination, building the Victorian Pride Centre and providing strong support for and investment in LGBTIQ organisations, community events and festivals.
Minister for Equality Martin Foley today announced the Victorian Government is now looking to the future with the opening of a public consultation process to develop Victoria’s first ever whole-of-government LGBTIQ strategy.’
‘Quotes attributable to the Minister for Equality Martin Foley
“For equality to be fully realised we need a clear vision – informed by a comprehensive understanding of the needs of LGBTIQ Victorians. This consultation is a vital part of making that happen.”
“Victoria’s first LGBTIQ Strategy will be developed in close consultation with LGBTIQ people, organisations and communities from across the state and will inform the Government’s equality agenda for years to come.”
Quote attributable to the Victorian Commissioner for Gender and Sexuality Ro Allen
“A Government that supports LGBTIQ Victorians by placing them front-and-centre of strategy development – as collaborators – is a Government that truly believes in equality.”‘ https://www.premier.vic.gov.au/victorias-first-whole-of-government-lgbtiq-strategy/
The Victorian government seems to be fixated on sodomy and sodomites. In the second paragraph above is mentioned the Victorian Pride Centre! What a waste of tax dollars this is! The Victorian state government has thrown away ‘…an extra $10 million in funding for the centre, which is the first of its kind in Australia, providing a space for groups and organisations to share ideas and resources to support their work for the LGBTIQ community.’ https://www.premier.vic.gov.au/marching-towards-equality-with-a-centre-for-pride/
