    ALBURY, Australia, July 2, 2015 (LifeSiteNews) -- A retired farmer and Vietnam war veteran has been felled by an unidentified young man outside the Fertility Control Clinic in Albury, New South Wales. The victim, Greg, who is in his seventies was taken by ambulance to Albury Base Hospital where scans revealed a fractured jaw. He also suffered an injury to his back. In video obtained by LifeSiteNews, the younger man is seen approaching the member of the Helpers of God's Precious Infants and assaults him. Greg raises his own arm as a natural act of self-defence and steps back. While...
  • Jim Jefferies Wants to keep Women from having guns

    Gun Watch ^ | 30 June, 2015 | Dean Weingarten
    Comedian Jim Jefferies has been making a bit of a splash in the United States by putting together a misleading rant against the right to bear arms in the U.S.  Jefferies does not want women to have guns.  He says that he does not want anyone to have guns, but then he is much bigger and stronger than most women, so perhaps he does not mind being disarmed, as long as women are disarmed as well.  A general prohibition on guns always favors those who are bigger, stronger and younger. Jefferies does not just rant about guns, he rants...

    Breitbart's Big Hollywood ^ | June 26, 2015 | AWR Hawkins
    On June 26, the Huffington Post ran a column focused on how Australian comedian Jim Jefferies “shoots down [the] 2nd Amendment with humor.” A central component of this “humor” is to equate gun rights with slavery and talk about how a constitutional amendment—like the one that banned slavery—could be used to overturn the protections the Second Amendment affords to the rights of self-defense and bearing arms. After all, Jefferies makes clear that he does not believe guns are actually used for protection. And he tells an anecdotal story to explain why: I had a break in in Manchester, England where...

    The debate over why Jews vote the way that they do is an old one, but it’s rarely backed by much data except the estimates of the Jewish vote from the last election. There is, however, one piece of data that currently predicts the Jewish vote. It’s religious attendance. 60 percent of Jews that attend weekly religious services disapprove of Obama. Only 34 percent approve. Among those who don’t attend religious services, approval of Obama stood at 58 percent to 38 percent. There are really two Jewish votes; the religious Jewish vote and the secular Jewish vote. ... When we...

    "I'm going to talk about something now that sort of splits the crowd a little bit," Australian comedian Jim Jeffries says. "Gun control." "Don't get excited," he continues, "because the other people have guns!" "Shhhhh." In this hilarious act, Jeffries says he believes in the right of Americans to have gun, but seems skeptical of the argument -- often made by gun rights activists often claim -- that Americans need guns for their own security. "In Australia we had guns, right up until 1996. In 1996 Australia had the biggest massacre on earth. Still hasn't been beaten," Jeffries says. "Now...

    Eminent Australian scientist Professor Frank Fenner, who helped to wipe out smallpox, predicts humans will probably be extinct within 100 years, because of overpopulation, environmental destruction and climate change. Fenner said that climate change is only at its beginning, but is likely to be the cause of our extinction. “We’ll undergo the same fate as the people on Easter Island,” he said. More people means fewer resources, and Fenner predicts “there will be a lot more wars over food.”

    The media silence was deafening on Friday as the Federal Communications Commission (FCC) launched “Net Neutrality” regulations–possibly the most far-reaching and intrusive regulatory action of the 21st century. When Breitbart News published “Everybody Equal, But Google Much More Equal” in February, revealing how the FCC’s Democratic majority gave Google the “heads up” on the secret regulations and allowed executives to tweak the deal, there was a huge uproar. But now that the Internet is under the FCC’s “Ministry of Innovation,” the media seem to have moved on. As Seton Motley noted at RedState, there was no mention in the tech...

The absence of industrial-scale agriculture in the area has ensured the survival of important archaeological and historical monuments together with the spaces – now fossil landscapes – in which they were built. In 1985, a survey of the area recorded 240 sites. Over the last few years, evidence for Mesolithic activity has been uncovered on the Thrumster Estate by Islay MacLeod...

    Australia’s political opposition hopes to harness momentum from the Irish gay marriage referendum after it proposed a law Monday that would recognize same-sex marriages, something the country’s conservative prime minister is against. Center-left Labor Party leader Bill Shorten became the first leader of a major Australian political party to back a bill to overturn a national ban on gay marriage. Gay rights advocates fear that government lawmakers will be reluctant to support the bill as such a law would be seen as a political victory for Shorten over Prime Minister Tony Abbott, a former Roman Catholic seminarian and a staunch...

"Climate science lacks scientific discipline," says the pro-amalgamation Professor, and in order to see more clearly we need to adopt an interdisciplinary approach. This requires humbleness. In Chapter 2: History, Plimer travels back in time, thousands of years, in fact, to debunk Gore's catastrophic global warming myths. I particularly like his research on the ancient Greeks.

This so-called Trans-Pacific Partnership would govern most of the commercial relations between the nations that sign it. "With over 20 chapters under negotiation," explains a Congressional Research Service report published in March, "the TPP partners envision the agreement to be 'comprehensive and high-standard,' in that they seek to eliminate tariffs and nontariff barriers to trade in goods, services, and agriculture, and to establish or expand...

    Australian Prime Minister Tony Abbott’s top business advisor on Friday claimed climate change was a ruse encouraged by the United Nations to create a new authoritarian world order under its control. Maurice Newman, chairman of the Prime Minister’s Business Advisory Council, said the real agenda was “concentrated political authority. Global warming is the hook”. In a column for The Australian newspaper to coincide with a visit by UN climate chief Christiana Figueres, he added that the world had been “subjected to extravagance from climate catastrophists for close to 50 years”. “It’s a well-kept secret, but 95 percent of the climate...
  • Australia to get classified Japanese data on stealthy submarines ahead of bid, sources say

    Japan will agree this month to give Australia classified submarine data, an unprecedented step signaling Tokyo’s intent to join competitive bidding to sell Canberra a fleet of stealth subs, said two Japanese officials familiar with the plan. The “competitive assessment” will see Germany’s ThyssenKrupp and France’s state-controlled naval contractor DCNS separately competing with a Japanese government-led bid for such contractors as Kawasaki Heavy Industries Ltd. and Mitsubishi Heavy Industries Ltd. Japan had been the front-runner in the planned sale of around 12 vessels, for as much as $40 billion, to replace Australia’s ageing Collins class submarines, sources have said, until...

  • Bill Shorten paying for being too safe (Australia's socialist opposition begins to slide)

    IN January, Tony Abbott seemed finished as Prime Minister. But how things have changed. Now the leader under pressure is Labor’s Bill Shorten. Just ask his smiling deputy, Tanya Plibersek. The mischief began last week, with Shorten away and Plibersek acting leader. First, Plibersek declared Labor should now force its politicians to vote for gay marriage, rather than allow a conscience vote. Many Labor MPs were outraged. MPs — including devout Christians — who would feel morally obliged to vote against party policy could be expelled under Labor’s rules. Labor could split. Shorten, on his return, quickly rejected Plibersek’s bullying...

    In 1989, Edward Bryant climbed a point on the southeast coast of his native Australia with a colleague and found an odd jumble of boulders well above the surf. A big wave, he thought, maybe a tsunami from an earthquake, must have tossed them up there. Over the next few years, however, the University of Wollongong geologist explored hundreds of miles of coast and found more signs of wave action, hundreds of feet above the water--too high for any quake-spawned surge. An astonishing hypothesis of devastation from outer space formed in his mind. It gathered some praise, along with many...
  • Australia's tallest man-made structure, the Omega tower, demolished in Gippsland (radio navigation)

    Australia's tallest man-made structure, the Omega tower, has been demolished in a paddock in Gippsland. The Omega radio navigation tower stood at around 430 metres tall but after a series of explosions it was brought crashing to Earth. The defence facility was used for submarine navigation in the 1980s and '90s and was decommissioned in 2008. The Department of Defence decided to demolish the tower after a young base jumper plunged to his death last year when his parachute failed to open. Michael Pollock from the Department of Defence said the structure was no longer needed. "From Defence's perspective, we've...

    The course, called “Making Sense of Climate Denial”, will start next week, and is free and entirely online. University of Queensland Global Change Institute climate communication fellow John Cook is the course coordinator as well as founder of the climate science myth debunking website Skeptical Science. “Ninety-seven per cent of climate scientists agree that humans are causing global warming; however, less than half of Australians are aware of humanity’s role in climate change, while half of the US Senate has voted that humans aren’t causing global warming,” Cook said. “This free course explains why there is such a huge gap...
