    Clinical psychologist, author, professor and easy-on-the-eye cultural critic, Jordan B. Peterson, took a break from his sold out speaking tour to chat with Miranda Devine. He had some sage words of advice for the likes of Qantas, Telstra, PWC, KPMG et al: “People who are doing this at the corporate level will rapidly get their comeuppance … If you’re operating within a capitalist environment like let’s say the executives and management of Qantas, who are being paid disproportionately well, you don’t also get to be a social radical. And you don’t get to salve your conscience for receiving a pay...

    Saturday, March 10, 2018 We're From the International Community and We're Here to Help Posted by Daniel Greenfield >3 Comments “I've always felt the nine most terrifying words in the English language are: I'm from the Government, and I'm here to help,” Ronald Reagan famously said. But the most terrifying words in every other language are, “We’re from the international community and we’re here to help.” In Haitian Creole that would be, "Nou soti nan kominote entènasyonal la e nou isit la pou ede." When an earthquake hit Haiti in ’10, everyone who was anyone in the international community quickly...

    If you oppose globalism in any way, you must be some kind of Nazi. At least that’s the message I’m getting from the slavishly pro-globalist press. It’s long been my suspicion that this extended, cringeworthy, and now years-long display of wantonly reckless public diaper-shitting known as “The Resistance” to Donald Trump—which has tweaked the dial all the way up to Full Screech Mode ever since he declared his candidacy in June of 2015—is nothing more than a full-on panic attack by global elites whose hegemonic grip over American affairs is finally being threatened by a politician who’s too headstrong, and...
  • “The Liberal World Order Is In Jeopardy”: Global Populism Rises To Highest Since WWII

    Earlier this week, one of the Obama administration’s top diplomats, Samantha Power, claimed that Russia was responsible for the stunning Italian election outcome, hinting that anyone who dares to point out or discuss the social and economic woes of Europe’s grand experiment – and certainly Europe’s “refugee problem”- is a Russian operative. In that case, Deutsche Bank must be the Frankfurt office of the KGB, because in an overnight note, the German lender reported something especially troubling for Europe’s future and viability: populism has risen to the highest level since World War II. Commenting on the recent Italian election, Deutsche...

    Though names have changed over time and new members added, it remains the case that behind the murderous Soviet Union, Hitler's occult National Socialist Reich, the ongoing destruction of the West, redistribution of its wealth, and replacement of Westerners and Americans with Muslims, there has been a powerful financial coterie of 'elite' progressives and like- minded travelers committed to a mystical pantheist worldview, apotheosis, self-empowerment, revolution and death. From the turn of the century till now, the coterie has been financing catastrophic worldwide wars, revolutions and mass murder, particularly of faithful Jews and Christians since the turn of the century:

    Many modern East Asian currencies have roots in Ming dynasty trade and Chinese traders’ faith in the Mexican silver dollar. Attempts to dislodge it, such as the Hong Kong-minted silver British dollar, were not always successfulAt the antiques market near the old Qingjing mosque in central Quanzhou, a city in China’s south-eastern Fujian province, it is sometimes possible to purchase unusual silver objects that reveal much about the currencies in circulation in East Asia today. On one stall, crammed with opium pipes, blue-and-white ceramics and jade trinkets, is a small, dome-shaped lump of metal in a rusty tin box. It...

    Top globalists, communists, and Islamists from around the globe gathered this month on the Arabian Peninsula for the World Government Summit — yes, that is the confab’s real name — to push for what they called a “new world order.” More than a few speakers made clear that liberty, self-government, and the “America First” agenda were in the crosshairs. On the other hand, Big Government, trans-humanism, and globalism were presented as the solution to basically everything, from alleged man-made “global warming” and health problems to unemployment and even hate. Aside from global governance and statism, one of the key themes...
  • Billionaire Bill Gates has no idea how commoners spend their money

    It’s been awhile since billionaire Bill Gates had to grocery shop among us plebs, so you’ll forgive him if he’s a little disconnected from the price of common items. The Microsoft co-founder appeared on “Ellen” yesterday, where the daytime host had him guessing costs of supermarket sundries like Rice-a-Roni, pizza rolls and forbidden snack-du-jour Tide Pods. SNIP Gates pegged Rice-a-Roni at $5 (it’s $1). He thought a container of Tide Pods cost $4. Please, it’s $19.97. After guessing an exorbitantly high cost for Totino’s Pizza Rolls, the audience took pity on him and pointed him to a more on-the-nose answer...

    There are federal subsidies for lots of things that society has decided would be good for the country, such as school lunches for low-income kids and better highways for all who use cars, trucks, and buses. On the other hand, there has always been widespread discrimination in, among things, the hiring process. There are oodles of federal and state programs that make that kind of discrimination illegal, appropriately so....[snip] A program that invests more than $1 billion a year to promote that kind of discrimination?

    Warmer temperatures and declining snow are making it tougher to host the games. It’s no surprise for climate researchers that training for the Winter Olympics, and the games themselves, have run into trouble. For sports contests that rely on snow and ice, a warmer global climate is no friend. The same week in January that Women’s Cup races stalled, the University of Waterloo in Ontario, Canada, released a study concluding that climate change is increasingly threatening the viability of the Winter Olympics, held once every four years. The updated study, which includes contributions from Canadian, Austrian, and Chinese researchers, concludes...

    The White House plans to withdraw Kathleen Hartnett White's nomination to head the Council on Environmental Quality, a White House official confirmed to CNN Saturday. Hartnett White, who would have overseen environmental and energy policies across the government, had described the belief in "global warming" as a "kind of paganism" for "secular elites" during a September 2016 interview on "The Right Perspective," an online conservative radio show. She has also said the goal of climate activists and the United Nations was an all-powerful, one-world government and "planetary management," KFile reported. President Donald Trump announced Hartnett White's nomination in October and...

    Washington Examiner ^ | January 28, 2018 | by Laura Barrón-López
    President Trump appeared to not have a basic understanding of climate science in an interview with Piers Morgan airing Sunday. Trump claimed that the earth is simultaneously heating and cooling and therefore climate change is not happening. “There is a cooling, and there’s a heating. I mean, look, it used to not be climate change, it used to be global warming. That wasn’t working too well because it was getting too cold all over the place,” Trump said. The statement is contradicted by scientists across the globe, including those at NASA, who have said for years that greenhouse gases caused...

    Sixteen percent of the world believes climate change is the most important problem leaders need to solve first, according to the 2018 Best Countries survey. But people in a handful of countries in Asia and Latin America are even more concerned. In two countries – Vietnam and Chile – climate change was named the most pressing challenge, ahead of immigration, income inequality, gender inequality, the refugee crisis, terrorism and other issues. More than a quarter of the population in three other countries – China, Colombia and Mexico – say climate change is the top threat. While it is difficult to...

    Glacial archaeologists are racing melting ice in Norway to rescue thousands of ancient artifacts exposed by climate change—revealing something surprising about a mysterious and little-known ice age. A team of scientists from Norway and the United Kingdom working in the mountains of Oppland, Norway, have discovered more than 2,000 artifacts, including Iron Age and Bronze Age weapons, remains of pack horses and even prehistoric skis. According to lead author Lars Pilø, co-director of the Glacier Archaeology Program at Oppland County Council, the skis differ from the modern-day version considerably. They're broader, and might have at one point been partly covered...

    The mood on the international conference call at the beginning of this month was somber as Ian Bremmer, president of the political risk consulting firm Eurasia Group, prepared to list off top global dangers in the coming year. Bremmer began with a show-stopping line: "If we had to pick one year for a big unexpected crisis — the geopolitical equivalent of the 2008 financial meltdown — it feels like 2018." The reasons are many, Bremmer cited, but the most prominent causes for global insecurity stem from U.S. President Donald Trump's move away from global leadership, and China's eagerness to fill...

    DAVOS, Switzerland - The global economy and geopolitical tensions are taking a back seat to a more immediate problem at this year’s Davos summit of political and business leaders: heavy snow is burying the venue. High in the Swiss alps on Monday, on the eve of the opening sessions, many of the roughly 3,000 delegates struggled to reach the ski resort. Part of the main train line into Davos had been buried in snow over the weekend, forcing people onto buses, and helicopters were disrupted by poor visibility. Some pre-summit meetings were canceled or delayed as the first waves of...

    Last year, the planet was plagued by powerful hurricanes, blistering fires, and temperatures that ranked as some of the hottest on record—ratcheting up concern that we’re already knee-deep in climate change. To stave off the heat, some scientists have proposed blanketing Earth in a sheet of sunlight-reflecting particles called aerosols. This solar shield could cool the planet and buy us time, but a new study suggests that if politicians turned off the hypothetical cloud, they could plunge the planet into a sudden ecological Armageddon. “Gradual climate change, which is happening now, is bad enough, but if we do something that...

    Canadian climate science is facing a looming crisis whose repercussions could be felt far beyond the country’s borders, hundreds of scientists have warned, after the Canadian government failed to renew the country’s only dedicated funding program for climate and atmospheric research. In an open letter addressed to Justin Trudeau, more than 250 scientists from 22 countries highlight their concern over the imminent end of the C$35m Climate Change and Atmospheric Research program. Launched in 2012, the program funded seven research networks that explored issues such as the impact of aerosols, changing sea ice and snow cover, as well as atmospheric...

    The Labour Party is charging white people extra to attend a Jeremy Corbyn rally in Loughborough, Leicestershire, on February 17th. Labour activists and supporters attending the rally will be charged £40 if they are white and £30 if they are non-white, reports the Mail on Sunday. “The basic price of a conference pass is the same for all members but, at the request of our East Midlands Regional Board, the party will subsidise part of the cost of this year’s conference pass for BAME [Black and Minority Ethnic] members to encourage attendance and improve representation,” explained a Labour spokesman.

    New research from a Florida State University scientist has revealed a surprising relationship between surging atmospheric carbon dioxide and flower blooms in a remote tropical forest. FSU researchers studying the rich tropical forests of Panama's Barro Colorado Island found that climbing rates of carbon dioxide have set the stage for a multidecade increase in overall flower production. The findings were outlined in a paper published in the journal Global Change Biology. "It's really remarkable," said Assistant Professor of Geography Stephanie Pau, who led the study. "Over the past several decades, we've seen temperatures warming and carbon dioxide increasing, and our...
