Bad men need nothing more to compass their ends, than that good men should look on and do nothing

Let not any one pacify his conscience by the delusion that he can do no harm if he takes no part, and forms no opinion. Bad men need nothing more to compass their ends, than that good men should look on and do nothing.

John Stuart Mill (1867)

This is quite the opposite from “the best advice I can give is for good men and women to bite their tongues and to carry on”.

We live in the best civilisation the planet has yet been able to construct – more free, more prosperous, more tolerant than any that has ever before existed – yet we are very near to descending into a dark age none of us or our children or our children’s children will then ever live to see end of. Just this, going on right now, should scare you into some clear thinking about what is before us and what we need to do: BA BANK HOLIDAY CHAOS British Airways cancels ALL flights from Heathrow and Gatwick after systems go down across entire world causing havoc for British holidaymakers – but airline denies cyber attack. Nihilism is a genuine force in the world. This lovely life we have constructed has enemies as depraved and determined as any we have ever faced, some outside the wall and some within, who would see our way of life obliterated. And make no mistake, they will do it if they can. And they can and will if we let them. And unless we become determined to fight them at every turn, we will lose.

In the world we are in there is one big issue, so large the others near enough do not count.

Donald Trump is our last line of defense. Tony Abbott was on the same path but without the strength of purpose. The Coalition is now led by its own version of Tanya Pliberseck. An inane incompetent fool without a single feature worthy of respect. He is now being pushed against his will to do what needs to be done by others who see what needs to be done. Peter Dutton is emerging from the pack as our own man of vision and character. Our own domestic political miracle, like Trump’s win in the US, was that the Coalition did not lose the last election. We, too, will have one more try.

And it’s true, it’s not anger we need but a clear-headed resolve. We need this to be just the start: Dutton says ‘best outcome’ for Australians fighting in Syria is to get ‘killed over there’ and he didn’t mean our soldiers. I am happy to welcome Janet onto this side of the fight. This was the pull quote in The Australian:

Trump offered up the kind of moral clarity that drove the West to defeat Nazis and Soviet communists.

Trump has offered moral clarity and much else. He offers a will to resist and the means to fight back. We will not get a second chance.

    Cohn talking on Trump at G7:
    “He came here to learn. He came here to get smart. His views are evolving, exactly as they should be,” Mr Trump’s economic adviser Gary Cohn said on Friday.”. Reuters

    I’m staggered. Is he learning like how Al Gore enlightened Clive Palmer. Why can’t we all know. Bloody secretive bankers; they’re a worry. Something is amiss here.

  2. The best outcome for Australians fighting in Syria is to get killed over there .

    Of course it is. The worst outcome is for them to come back here physically intact.

    These people should be enough to go to Syria. That should be policy. But they should not be allowed back.

  3. The best outcome for Australians fighting in Syria is to get killed over there .

    Of course it is. The worst outcome is for them to come back here physically intact.

    These people should be encouraged to go to Syria. That should be policy. But they should not be allowed back.

  4. After the Curtis Cheng murder, the Parramatta mosque should have been shut down until they demonstrated how they were going to dissuade further attacks amongst their worshippers. Any other organisation would have been, but for political correctness, it was not.

    In other words, for political correctness, good men did nothing.

  5. The ground for the rise of people like Trump, Farage LePen and others in Europe was prepared not by indifference to politics, but people getting so pissed off with the current status quo that they decided to give them a shot. I sense that same sentiment growing in Oz.

    That our politicians are generally clueless when it comes to Islamic terror is bad enough, but even worse is the advice they get from our mealy mouthed security and intelligence agencies. Without a change, we are set for decades of domestic terror alerts and attacks.

    Every returning rape-jihadi is a force for the dewesternisation of Australia.

    A critical mass of returned corpse-bothering wahhabis in Australias cities means that our corrupt kleptocrats can Bollardise our economy, borrowing as much as it takes to protect their oligarchs and their teeming minions [ but not the proles.] The crushing power of the State will create a brand new debt funded force to ensure the proles are compliant with the framed agenda, and not led into Domestic Terror Backlash.

    The disarming of legal registered firearm owners will be required so that jihadis cannot steal their guns, and to avoid acts of Domestic Terrorism where homowners commit the Domestic Terror crime of excessive force in response to home invasion.

    Self defence is Domestic Terrorism.

    Saying that self defence should be encouraged is a Domestic Terror thought crime.

    Maybe some legal wonk can explain to me why the laws don’t work (or aren’t being applied in these situations).

    I thought we had laws for
    * fighting against our country
    * fighting in any foreign action under someone elses flag
    * treason

    Is the lack of prosecutions (ala Baby Hicks) because this is not officially a war?

    Time to think more seriously about Dutton with his not-so-safe seat and all that. Turnbull’s run has been shot for long enough and watching on was fun for a while, but when people so obviously stop listening there’s no Machiavellian defibrillator powerful enough. The potential for electoral wipeout grows and as much as we’re right to instinctively loathe the wets the open-borders risk of a Shorten-Plybers mess trying to emulate Brussels is real. The whole shooting match, national and Liberal would be a lot safer with Dutton up front in Captains Class and in pure electoral calculus you can bet your bottom dollar seats like Capricornia, Forde, and Flynn would be safer into the bargain. The risk of a by-election in Wentworth is worth the play.

    The deconstruction of Australian society will accelerate with the coming show trials of the dead settler culture.

    Their left will open a rolling taxfunded multi-front blitz to rewrite Australian history, imposing todays politically correct standards on any historical figure they can convict of thought crimes.

    The excuse will be aboriginal rights, but the outcome will be pure Stalinism, their left already have lists of figures to be purged from history, they just need the taxfunding to live a life of luxury while they do it.

    Their shorten earnestly lecturing the voteherds that the Abbottbeast stole babies from Aboriginal mothers while giving them smallpox infected blankets in exchange, and that only gough whitlam freeing the Aboriginal slaves and giving Aboriginals the vote and counting Aboriginals as human beings opened up Australia to the pathway to cultural change like Rhodesia was changed, this is what our showtrials will be like.

    I have wanted to comment for days re the Duncan Lewis comments in response to Senator Hanson, but have been too angry. I am not a PHON supporter, but Lewis’s response is beyond ridiculous, it is downright dangerous. A dangerous lie, or dangerous incompetence pursued only to avoid accepting the totally reasonable and obvious proposition put by Senator Hanson. It confirms the Government’s dangerous immigration policy. Lewis emerges from the swamp to remind us that it is there, it stinks and is dangerous for those ordinary Australians who live beyond the bollards.

    Anarcho-Tyranny: it is easier and more profitable in the short term to turn the tools of the state against the law abiding (squeezing them for higher taxes, shutting them up with accusations of racism, consuming their lives with pointless procedural regulations) than it is to genuinely get tough on crime (i.e. the real criminals, the rapists, the thugs, the gangs who deal out robbery and beatings) because the hard criminals are likely to fight back.

    “Donald Trump is our last line of defense. Tony Abbott was on the same path but without the strength of purpose. ”

    The problem with Abbott was that all he ever really did was posture: rabbiting on about “Islamic death cults” in front of umpteen flags, in the same way that he held regulr press conferences to tell the world that he was confident that he was about to find MH370. Trump also seems to me to be more of a poseur than a deliverer. His most decisive action so far has been to bomb an airport belonging to one of the few Middle Eastern governments that is actually fighting Islamic terrorism simply because he saw some images on the TV news that made him feel sad: which is, ironically enough, the same way that the bleeding hearts of the left come up with most of their policy ideas.

    Oh, and Trump has also implemented a couple of confused and confusing measures making it difficult for some Muslims – probably not the most dangerous ones – to travel to the US and making it difficult for everyone who needs to use their laptop to work on a plane. But at the same time, there appears to be a lot of chaos and confusion in US intelligence circles, as is perhaps evidenced by this week’s magnificent effort in which seemingly every piece of intelligence the UK shared with them about the Manchester bombing was immediately leaked to the media.

    Let’s not confuse posturing with action. The real action required to fight radical Islam is being undertaken on the ground by troops fighting ISIS in Iraq and Syria, and by intelligence agencies around the world. Very few readers of this forum would know what the Turnbull Government is actually doing behind the scenes to fight Islamic terrorism. And that’s a good thing. I don’t want to see people like Duncan Lewis being forced to reveal sensitive classified information to the likes of Pauline Hanson. Good on him for giving her the brush-off.

    Less posturing and more action is what I want to see.

  37. John Comnenus

    Meher,

    You are wrong. Whilst Lewis should not reveal anything classified in an open forum, he should answer honestly. He is dangerously deluded if he honestly believes that refugees pose no threat.

    well your governments who is not based on christian principles, which believe democracy, multiculturalism and diversity.

    confession, circumcision, and eligibility for service in the Lord’s army sufficient to establish an inheritable claim of citizenship? Yes.

    In Mosaic Israel, the immigrant could not become a citizen until he became a member of the congregation by confession and circumcision

    The bottom line is that under biblical law, only the ger was granted beneficial citizen rights, including the right to permanently live in the country, but with those rights came obligations to assimilate into Israelite society, culture and religion.
    The exclusion of these rights from the nokriy did not mean that Israel could legally deny him or her basic standards of human decency. Rather, it shows that the Israelites were not obligated to grant equal status to every foreign person living among them.

  41. ned

    At least two fundamental principles of Western law had their origin in Mosaic Israel. The first principle was the rule of law itself: every resident was to be protected equally by the civil law. The second principle was open immigration. The nation’s treatment of the immigrant served as a touchstone in Israel of the nation’s faithfulness to the first principle.

    On ‘Climate Change,’ Trump Can’t Afford to Alienate His Base
    “The one thing I’ll say that won’t change though is he’s certain to base his decision based on what he thinks is best for the American people,” national security adviser H.R. McMaster said. “So while his views are evolving, the basis for his decision remains unchanged.”
    https://pjmedia.com/michaelwalsh/2017/05/27/on-climate-change-trump-cant-afford-to-alienate-his-base/

    Clearly, for Trump now to violate a major campaign promise and stick with the Paris agreement would be a huge mistake. It would both enrage and dishearten his base, which has stood by him throughout the attempted rolling coup engineered by the Deep State and the intelligence community, and facilitated by the press. He must slam-dunk it, no matter what the pygmy states of Europe and the semi-imaginary country of Canada think.

    He just walked hand in hand with his new boyfriend the King of Sauid Arabia, the worlds second biggest sponsor of that “one big issue” you were talking about.
    Far from shredding the horrible alliance with the Saudi’s he also signed a multi-billion dollar arms deal with them.

    I guess that what is challenging is the “bite their tongues and carry on” bit. For this implies to some that means do nothing in the manner of:

    Dutton should be encouraged to make a move soon and the 54 backstabbers would be advised to support him if they know what’s good for them.

    I have wanted to comment for days re the Duncan Lewis comments in response to Senator Hanson, but have been too angry. I am not a PHON supporter, but Lewis’s response is beyond ridiculous, it is downright dangerous. A dangerous lie, or dangerous incompetence pursued only to avoid accepting the totally reasonable and obvious proposition put by Senator Hanson. It confirms the Government’s dangerous immigration policy. Lewis emerges from the swamp to remind us that it is there, it stinks and is dangerous for those ordinary Australians who live beyond the bollards.

    My reaction was also anger at Lewis’s contempt not just for Hanson but for all citizens to whom he seems to be unaccountable. His response seems to insinuate how dare anyone question him. Such an aristocratic attitude.

    On the other hand I may be too generous to Lewis, he might actually believe what he says.

    indeed — I’m seriously asking myself if Dutton has been asked by Lord Waffle if he could play ‘bad-cop’ for a couple of weeks.

    I’m an optimist, like Bullwinkle I keep hoping it will be a rabbit out of the hat this time.

    I hate to be the one to break this to you Crossie, but that big lump of brown stuff you just pulled out of the LNP hat is NOT a rabbit. And never will be.

    So you’re convinced that Malcolm has killed off the Liberal Party? I was hoping that it was still salvageable.

    Oh well, minor parties it is then,

  63. Crossie

    By minor parties I meant at present time which doesn’t mean they will remain that way. With Liberals gone one of the current minors will pick up the slack.

    It’s up to Barnaby Joyce whether the Nationals pick up the pieces or go the way of the Liberals.

    After the Curtis Cheng murder, the Parramatta mosque should have been shut down until they demonstrated how they were going to dissuade further attacks amongst their worshippers.

    No. Stop being a cuck. Muslims do not belong in Australia. They all have to go back. Every single one of them.

  65. Jim Peters

    As Trump has said so well, the problem is ‘the swamp’.

    Who are ‘they’? Who is ‘the swamp’?

    Basically it’s those citizens who lose from government losing power.

    It’s a collection of citizens who’ve realised that an opportunity has arisen to use the system for their personal benefit.

    In the US, they call it the Uniparty. A collapse of the traditional political rivalries that kept the system honest. Replaced by a group of individuals that essentially hold the same position, because it supplies them.with benefits that they want to maintain, all working together to protect it.

    They control the levers of power – system, thought & language. Their ability to exploit these 24/7 gives them control.

    Buying off the media gives them control over information (or so they think). This has become far easier with the replacement of experienced journalists wth young, naive and ignorant kids.

    The group includes establishment politicians & public servants. In the US, the intelligence community. Also the legacy media, who need access to the establishment system to survive.

    The rules are simple – protect the system that supplies the benefits, hat all costs.

    It certainly means destroying any outsider who seeks to break up the cartel and who wants to transfer power back to ordinary citizens.

    It’s far easier than serving the public good.

    The only lever they cannot fully control is the free decision of a citizen at the ballot box. They would love to, but even they realise such a naked grab for power would be too obvious.

    But it doesn’t really matter. Control over information, through a submissive media, means they can do whatever they want.

    In the US the problem is far worse than many realise. Unaccountable and out of control, politicians such as Bill & Hillary Clinton have exploited the system to become massively wealthy. Obama & his people, drunk on power, spy on innocent citizens they perceive to be rivals. The IC & media class help them and act as Praetorian guards.

    Another word for what’s going on is corruption. Look at an apple rotting. The rot is slow, invisible. If everyone is busy, you don’t see it happening.

    We are talking at America’s level of criminality yet, but the process has started in Australia.

    In vicco, their feckless and languid red ted baileau was a turnfailure clone, but the suicidal andrews satrapy that replaced it has accelerated the destruction of yarragrad at an unbelieveable speed.

    The incoming yarragrad ‘ crime to disrespect islam’ laws could in theory shut down the Cat before Christmas.

    When there is only a choice between being sent to the Gulags in ten years under a turnfailure regime, or sent to the Gulags in ten weeks under a shorten regime, then i will vote for their despised turnfailure, while working to sabotage from within the tent.

    Where there is life there is hope, but the sheer success of communism, where Ararat shire has convicted a minority of the population of thought crimes and levied an annual finetax on them for racism and disrespect, so their rates go up 50% in a year to pay the shire to be Stalinist activists on the social engineering battleground- this is a glaring example of where shorten will take us.

    I was going to reply to Memoryvault’s couple of yarns, but it would be a waste of time.
    He’s very obviously rolled over and given up!

    That’s okay, Cynic. You just go on paying your dues and handing out how to vote cards, and waiting for the Great Liberal Messiah. Like good little Textorites should.

    Me? I’m off fishing with my granddaughter, and picking up some white feathers in my travels.
    Back later on this afternoon.
