Australia My Country - A Poem
After reading several online articles this week involving Politically Correct outrage in Australia, I sat down and wrote the following poem, all the while wondering what Dorothea Mackellar would have written if she were still alive today.

A Must Read: Anne Marie Waters' letter to Feminists
It is so refreshing to hear a real feminist speaking honestly. It is so much better than listening to ideological propaganda which in the end is purely sociopathic. In the article titled: "A Message to Left-Wing Feminists" published by Anne Marie Waters on January 12th 2016, she makes the following (edited) statements toward the end of her article and I think every man and woman should not only read what follows but go read the entire article and get behind the author.

Excerpts from "Finding Myself in China" (The Politically Incorrect Version)
After resigning from my position of Acting Editor of Magic City effective December 31st 2014 I removed the content of the original chapter pages and replaced them with 'excerpts' from various chapters. In January of 2016 I signed a contract with a publisher and hope that by the end of the year, 'Finding Myself in China' will be available for purchase.

Remain Ignorant or Become Informed
It is not something that the Politically Corrupt take too kindly to. Sociopathic PC ideologues, for all their ranting and raving and screaming and threatening in support of tolerance, non-discrimination and l-o-v-e, just l-o-v-e to fight against anything that smacks of Judeo-Christian ethic. So naturally I write against those people too! This short scribble today is not about writing against anything or even for anything, but simply to bring to your attention, (The Christian, The Jew, the person who sees the Middle-East hypocrisy being peddled by the media) something that you probably don't know about.

PC Hypocrisy Promotes Domestic Violence
It is time for the feminist movement to 'walk into the light' and speak factually - statistically - and honestly about the causes of domestic violence, and it is time for them to stop being hypocrites when it comes to domestic violence in ethnic communities. It's time our societies stopped playing the PC game; dispensed with inaction that arises because of PC guilt trips; stopped playing with statistics in order to advance certain causes and stopped deceiving society at large. If we have a real problem, then it requires real action to solve - not PC game playing.

PR companies are no longer sending material to us so it seems that this will be our last book basket. Authors are still invited to send us articles for publication and we will continue (despite some monopolies that dislike the practice) to provide free advertising for author books.

These are: "Presidio of San Francisco: Post Closure" By Dr. Robert William Curtis; "The Life and Legend of a Polio Victim" by Dr. Cliff Edward Williams; "Science of the Soul" by Cynthia S. Toth PhD; "Where's my Wife?" by Clark Selby; "Seeds of Destruction" By Gary Miller Proulx; "Stinky Feet, the Dragon" By Rhonda Stewart and "Bargain Basement War Heroes: What Did You Do in WWII, Grandpa?"

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.

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.

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.
