Yesterday was ANZAC Day in Australia and New Zealand. Lest we forget. It is the day that we honor our veterans, which officially began when the Australian New Zealand Army Corps went off to fight in 1915 at Gallipoli against the Ottoman Empire. Unofficially Australians also fought in the Boer wars in South Africa a few years before. The ANZACs have always punched far above their weight in battle. Notable examples would be numerous engagements throughout 1917 and 1918 on the Western Front, particularly the Black Day of the German army. The routing and destruction of the Ottoman Empire in the Middle East in 1918. The first siege of Tobruk in the Western Desert in 1941. The battle of Milne Bay when a few hundred Australians routed a Japanese attempt to land 10,000 soldiers in Papua New Guinea. The battles of the Kokoda trail. And the battle of Long Tan in 1966 in Vietnam. Yes, Australia was in Vietnam. We went the entire distance in that war shoulder to shoulder with the USA.
And there is a new movie coming out about that battle which I for one am going to see.

Martin Creveld examines the argument for the case that modern women are simply inferior men.

One of the most important, yet seldom noted, aspects of modern feminism is that, in their efforts to prove themselves, women have almost never originated anything new to call their own. Instead of doing so they regularly followed in men’s footsteps, imitating them in whatever they did.
Consider the following examples.
General. Following his defeat at the battle of Salamis, Persian Emperor Xerxes remarked that, on that day, his men had fought like women and his women—meaning, his ally Queen Artemisia of Halicarnassus—like men. From then to Margaret Thatcher, the best thing one could say about a successful woman was that she was like a man; the worst thing one could say about a man, that he was like a woman. So it was, so it is, and so, presumably, it will remain.

Watch that clip for the Long Tan movie and honestly ask yourself if women could survive that sort of engagement, let alone operate effectively in it.

Aussie feminist coffee shop goes out of business.

Their über-woke commitment to radical ideology was confirmed last year when, on their one-year anniversary, they hosted “a delicious three course vegan dinner . . . along with a panel discussion and Q&A with some of Melbourne’s fiercest feminists,” including Clementine Ford. They promoted an anti-heterosexual agenda with a series of events called “Queer Conversations,” which last month focused on condemning marriage as a “way of treating women as property.”

These women exist due to the fact that Aussie men have sacrificed themselves in battle in the past. How gratifying that they should go out of business a few days after ANZAC Day.

Some Swedish teenage girl is in London to tell British politicians how to run their country. Even worse, the pollies are taking her seriously.

This Swedish brat demanding we pay her attention and organise our nation’s affairs in a way which meets her approval is one thing. That our politicians, media, and substantial numbers of adults at large in our society see fit to accommodate her is something else. Serious countries would not involve teenagers in the setting of public policy, especially foreign ones. Serious countries would never find themselves even being asked to.

I love forests because I am of northern European stock.

Environmentalism is complicated. As left wing vanguard politics, it’s the devil wearing a human skinsuit. But in listening to our healthy European voice deep inside, we recoil at the destruction of forests. The European soul loves the forest. Poor is the White man who knows not the joy of time alone deep among trees, the moss, the lawless cries of birds. The European subraces have their own customs with regards to the forest. Teutons, Celts, Slavs… we northeastern Slavs (I’m not that familiar our Balkan brothers, whose spiritual landscape is rocks and mountains, unlike our vast snowy plains) we forage for mushrooms. Every child is an expert on the prize-find vs something that can kill you.

I tell the Dutch how much I love the natural beauty of their country, particularly coming from the harsh and dry landscape of Australia. They think I am mad, but only because they do not understand what it is to luxuriate in a truly green landscape for the first time.

Are you upset at the church bombings in Sri Lanka? Well, that then means that you are far-right.

What the liberal media have done with Islam, really, is an updated version of what they did with Communism during the Cold War. According to liberals, the greatest danger facing America circa 1950 was not Stalin or Mao; no, the real danger was “McCarthyism.” Don’t worry about those totalitarians with nuclear weapons pointed at us, said the liberals, what should seriously concern Americans is that a high-school teacher in Brooklyn or a screenwriter in Hollywood might lose his job for joining the Communist Party: “What about their civil rights?” And after it was pointed out that there were no civil rights under Communism — no free speech, no free press, etc. — the liberals next switched to the game of shouting “Fascist!” at anyone who made such a point. Anyone who seriously opposed Communism was always compared to Hitler by liberal smear merchants, who accused every prominent anti-Communist — from Richard Nixon to William F. Buckley Jr. to Barry Goldwater to Ronald Reagan — of being “paranoid” or having an “authoritarian personality.”
Fast-forward to the Trump era, and you’re a white supremacist if you’re OK with Kate Smith singing “God Bless America” at a hockey game.

I must be far far far-right then.

The background history of Crossfit.

Jenai — who reportedly sold her CrossFit shares for up to $20 million as part of her messy split from Glassman in 2013 — had told us how she fell for Tucker during their video chats.
“We hadn’t seen each other in 30 years . . . We started having feelings for each other . . . We’re going to get married,” she said.
STARTED having feelings?
She’s hoping the nuptials will be this summer [2019], in part so she can begin to medically advocate for Tucker, who she said suffers from two hernias.
She added she won’t have Tucker sign a prenup: “Our relationship is very open and we are a team. I trust him. I love him. My house is his house. A prenup feels a little inappropriate.”
However, there’s even more pressure for them to be together because Jenai’s been barred from video visitation with Tucker for a whopping 100 years, after an incident in February.
“I got a little risqué . . . I was touching my boobs,” she admitted.
Half of American men are incel/forever alone/generally unwanted by the female sex. But after her divorce, Jenai looked up the thug she lost her virginity to, who after thirty years still excited her so much that she masturbated to the sight of him while his jailers watched.

Yee gods.
