When Women and "Women Only" Matter!
The Domestic Violence article failed to address a number of issues.
What are the statistics for female violence against other people including males?
What are the statistics for Male-on-male Domestic Violence?
What are the statistics for Domestic Violence within homosexual relationships?
What are the statistics for Domestic Violence within relationships in which the male is involved in violent crimes and gangs?
What percentage of offenders are found in ethnic groups within which honor killings are part of the ethnic culture?
What percentage of male offenders are the victims of mental cruelty and emotional abuse by their female partners?
What percentage of Male perpetrators of Domestic Violence suffer from Mental Illness?

America Has Been Warned: Your Days Are Numbered
It is highly likely that many readers will be offended by the content and tone of this article. I would therefore suggest that those who cannot tolerate opinions other than their own; cannot tolerate expressions of anger and outrage; cannot tolerate PC defined "racism"; cannot tolerate dissent - should move on and read something else. You have been warned! Some smart mouthed idiots would throw a hissy fit at the questions above and declare 'I don't want my country to be a religious country.' Well that is Ok because factually speaking there are no countries that are Christian Countries because Western Civilization has thrown off the allegiance to religion in favor of secular democratic states. So their choices are "Islamic or Secular State." If they choose the former then they need do nothing. If they really do chose the latter, then they need to start taking an active role in politics.

R.P. BenDedek Interview with Beau Sides, author of "Unseen Tears."
Recently I did a quick search for statistics on abandoned babies in China. CCTV had a stat saying that in 2013 10,000 babies were abandoned in China and over 75% of them were disabled. I don't have any current accurate numbers, but I would imagine that as the total population grows there will be more children abandoned. As I mentioned earlier, baby hatches have been established and have been busy with the children they receive. From what I have read, more children were abandoned at the hatches than expected. In contrast to that, not as many couples registered to have a second child, which surprised many including myself... Man, my heart truly goes out to a person without their registration or Hukou in China! I am told that a person in that situation can't enroll in school or be legally employed.

Magic City Book Basket 2015 No. 29
We received only nine publicity emails during the last Five weeks so I guess Google, which has done so much to monopolize the internet advertising market, has been applying pressure to prevent us from receiving publicity material and supplying free publicity to authors. Who knows? But it does seem strange. Because there have been no book baskets we have quite a list of book reviews published since our last basket. We have in fact eight book reviews and five author articles listed in this week's basket. The book releases listed this week include: "To the Sun and Back" By April Awalt; "The Aerie: Air Strip on Weeks Mountain" By Marjorie Irish Randell; "Gullible Travels" By Ronnie Bermann; "Unseen Tears: The Challenges of Orphans and Orphanages in China" by Beau Sides; "Late Bird" by Jason Kraus; "Love on the Rocks: A Positano Tale" By Catie Costa; "It Wasn't Like Nothing: One Marine's Adventure in Vietnam" by Thomas J. Hynes; "Calico Jam" By Joanne Greene and "Order of Merit" by Richard Storry

Do mothers kill more children than fathers?
I opened this article by citing the headers to these three articles on Domestic Violence because I came across an article in which Warwick Marsh, the founder of fatherhood foundation Dads4Kids, is quoted as saying: "There's a whole bunch of research that shows when children have an involved father, they're a lot less likely to be violent"..."A statistical reality, as unfortunate as it is, is that more mothers kill children than fathers"

Australian Government of the Media, by the Media, for the Media
In an article published today in Australia [Immigration Minister] Mr. Dutton accused Fairfax Media of trying to "bring the government down." He told Sky News: "The reality is that there is a bit of a jihad being conducted by Fairfax [Media] at the moment." Given how Political Correctness is being forced down our throats by the Media in general, and how the media constantly tries to portray Australia as a racist country by ignoring the foundational premise of the Westminster System of Justice, which is that everyone is innocent until proven guilty, I for one see Mainstream Media at best as prostitutes doing whatever it takes to make a quick buck and at worst as traitors willingly involved in the destruction of Democracy.

The Fine Print in Climate Change Theology
I do hope you forgive me for the facetious way in which the forgoing material was presented, but I think it important that people learn to pay close attention to the wording of allegedly scientific proclamations. Now hang on a second. Did that guy just say that this is not a new phenomenon? Did he really just say that this has happened in the past? I think he did you know, and that is why he says things like 'ice sheets are waking up' and 'a new era of rapid ice loss.' There are two extremely important points listed in the article on rising sea levels. The first is that this is not an unprecedented event in the history of the world. It has happened before - long before all our industrial age man-made carbon gases. The second point is that far from the 'apocalyptic certainty' portrayed in the media, scientists are making observations, guessing, deducing and forecasting events which are totally not predictable.

The Real Reason Why I Cannot Support RECLAIM Australia
Recently there was a lot of publicity given to violence that erupted in several cities in Australia when "Reclaim Australia" protestors clashed with angry counter protestors who accused "Reclaim Australia" of being racists. "Reclaim Australia" protests were clearly an attack on Muslims and Muslim Communities in Australia. As an Australian I get tired of that tired old line constantly appearing in both domestic and foreign press claiming that Australia is a racist country. As the counter protestors have clearly demonstrated, the Australian people have risen up to declare that they are not racist and that they will not permit racism in Australia.

Deaf Ears and Blind Hearts Ignore the SIgns
The Clarion Project recently released a 3 minute video warning the USA to listen to and BELIEVE what the Muslim world says. It provides some footage of historical situations in which the West failed to heed the warnings and paid dearly. There is a growing number of westerners joining ISIS. These people will return home if they are not killed. These people have been told to rise up against and DESTROY the infidel wherever they are found.

Children's Deaths Don't Matter to Domestic Violence Activists
Statistics are a tool for measuring various aspects of any given situation, but as a weapon, they can be used to promote any desired agenda, simply by pulling them out of context. I mentioned above that Female domestic violence deaths equated with 0.00001% of males between the ages of 25 and 54, whilst the number of children at risk was ten thousand times higher and the number of deaths in one state alone was Nine times higher. To deliberately project onto society an ideology that is biased, disproportional and/or false, is to impact generations of impressionable young minds whose every relationship will be infected with a cancerous untruth.

No Confidence in American Sanity
No Muslims have ever complained about this. I state this for a reason. Many times in my writing against Political Correctness I have pointed out that such things as Nativity Scenes are not offensive to anyone other than atheistic PC ideologues who hate God, religion and traditional Judeo-Christian history and culture. They are hardcore communists seeking to rip down the democratic state.

Do we justify our own death?
I was recently intrigued by a particular comment made in a video dated April 29, 2015, narrated by Ezra Levant, the Commander of The Rebel Media group in Canada. The video was critical of sympathetic statements made in a video report by a member of the Toronto Star in relation to a convicted terrorist Omar Khadr. If Mr. Levant is correct, then the very western liberal people who defend and support the Islamic agenda in all its forms are not only filled with contempt for their historical and cultural backgrounds, but justifying the annihilation of both it and themselves.

Australia, the lucky country? It COULD be, but it's NOT.
Holden Customer Care (Holden Car Sales) called me again yesterday, and the lady I spoke to assured me that Holden has taken on board all that I have said and will strive to do better in future. I asked her if she had actually read my original email, and she stuttered and stumbled around, so I explained it in short terms. I told her that all I want is an answer.... which figure is incorrect? I need to know if I have to get rid of my car and buy another to legally tow my caravan. I told her that so far, I have been totally stuffed around, with emails back and forth and phone calls, the enquiry being elevated to a higher level, only to come back down to the lower level person who calls me and tell me he doesn't know. I said all I want is an answer, and you people go through the required, automated motions that all look good on your files, but don't do a damned thing for your customers.

Racist Israel cuts off Gaza
Such measures include 25 year sentences for those engaged in digging tunnels and even those whose only 'crime' is not reporting the existence of tunnels. Furthermore, and combined with stronger sanctions, it has been decided to expand the 'buffer zone' around Gaza. At the beginning of 2014 about 280-300 companies and factories were forced to close amid a blockade imposed by Israeli forces on the entry of construction materials into the Gaza Strip. The head of the Federation of Contractors in the Gaza Strip has claimed that the construction sector in Gaza is one of the most affected sectors and 50% of the construction projects have been stalled after construction materials could not enter through the tunnels.

Challenging Domestic Violence Sociopathology and Statistics
Perhaps all those women and organizations out there teaching our boys to be well behaved have failed because they have been undermining their message by verbally teaching one type of behavior whilst practicing another? In other words 'are they hypocrites' and is this hypocrisy resulting in reactionary behavior? Are all of these people teaching boys to be non-sexist and non-violent, actually demonstrating to these boys the female version of sexism and violence. Perhaps we might call it 'Emotional Abuse?'

Stand up for free speech! Stand up for Liberty!
Mr. Nawaz spoke for about six and a half minutes which means that he spoke about 1100 words, and I don't think I have ever seen that much power packed into such a limited number of words. The apparent purpose of his speech was to "Defend the Right to Blaspheme." Seems a bit strange, but from my perspective, it was all about free speech. AND SHOCKINGLY it was about (although the actual words were not used), how political correctness actually contributes to persecution of minority groups.
