Uganda orders arrest of American citizen living in New York for the crime of homosexuality.

Last week the US government organised for the arrest of a Chinese national while she was transiting through Vancouver international airport. The Canadians dutifully complied because what else would they do when they’re told what to do by their betters? The individual arrested just happens to be the CFO of Huawei, Meng Wanzhou. She was arrested for something to do with US sanctions.

Although now released on $10 million bail, she still faces extradition to a New York City courtroom, where she could receive up to thirty years in federal prison for allegedly having conspired in 2010 to violate America’s unilateral economic trade sanctions against Iran.

Ms Wanzhou is a Chinese national of some importance. She was not on a trip to the US at the time. But she has been arrested for breaking US law. The question that I have is this – since when did US law become international law applicable to any citizen of any country at any time that the US chooses is convenient?

The supply and demand of wage growth.

A comment on last week’s hawt chicks & links from a reader with an unpronounceable name:

In a world where we continue to experience labor shortages I might agree with Carlson, but the future we face indicates millions of jobs erased by automation.

Worker salaries around the West have in general seen much stagnation over the past few decades. But this has not been caused by automation. Rather, it is down to a combination of bad trading policy that has destroyed manufacturing as a base as well as wholesale immigration. The laws of supply and demand are real bitches when it comes to this sort of thing.

An example that I find illustrative is what occurred in the Netherlands after the Second World War. With large parts of the country devastated and the economy moribund, hundreds of thousands of Dutch emigrated to countries like Australia in search of work. Then the economic boom of the 60s occurred and suddenly there were not enough workers to go around. Because of this, wages increased. Businesses didn’t like having to pay all these wages to the suddenly uppity lower classes so they lobbied the government to bring in thousands of immigrants from countries like Turkey.

The cult of nice.

Recently on my way to work my car radio had a spastic attack and instead of fine New Orleans jazz it began pumping out some NPR-style shtick, to whit an interview with two fags who were among the very first to get married in the USA under the marriage equality Act laws brought in under Obama. Apparently their story has been interred in The Smithsonian museum. How nice for them.

The female interviewer was so enthusiastic about their story that her words dripped honey through the airwaves. The two men spoke about their wonderful day getting married in a church, with their proud and happy children by their sides, as the female pastor joyfully pronounced them husband and err … husband. It was at this point that carefully orchestrated music began underpinning the scene, and one could feel the warmth and happiness oozing from the speakers as the segment came to its finale in a manner which would have given even the good folks at lake Wobegun pause for extra introspection.

It is, of course, nothing but demented propaganda.

The pitfalls of casual sex.

Stuart Schneiderman has a wonderful analysis of just how detrimental feminism has been to women.

Feminists destroyed courtship and dating. They told women that they were just like men and wanted sex as much as men do. And they also told women not to commit to a man when they were young– that would be under age 35– because it would destroy their career prospects.

Put it all together and you have a coterie of young women who give it away for free, who do not want a commitment because then they will risk love and marriage and children. And, will compromise their career prospects. Note, in passing, that Seriously Angry says nothing about her career prospects.And, you probably saw that Seriously Angry feels– correctly– that the feminist hookup plan is serious disempowering for women. And that it’s empowering for men.

The number of articles and thought pieces written by women complaining about the current pickup culture only increases by the day, and yet this pickup culture was orchestrated by women as Schneiderman notes.

Podcast #108 – The dead cat episode.

A dead cat helped win the Australian election for the conservative party. Tune in to find out what the hell I’m talking about.

The Greens sink Labor.

In 1982 the largest environmental campaign in Australia’s history took place in protest at the planned hydroelectric dam on the Franklin river in Tasmania. The protest drew people from all around Australia and it set the groundwork for the creation of the Greens, headed by Bob Brown, as a serious political force in Australia. The campaign directly contributed to bringing down the Federal conservative government of Malcolm Fraser, and the left wing Labor party under Bob Hawke won the subsequent election in a landslide after Hawke campaigned on stopping the dam being built.

This decision was challenged by the state of Tasmania in the High Court which decided in the federal government’s favor. But that was 35 years ago. The relentless Green push for power reached a high point in Australia with the 2010 election where they held the balance of power in the Senate and formed a minority government with Labor. But since then their increasingly hysterical and deluded calls for action on climate change have progressively revealed them as the Marxist-socialists that they actually are.

Friday hawt chicks & links – Time to bend over and get socialism edition.

Tomorrow Australia will vote on whether they want hardcore socialism right now or for the slow steady boil to continue. There is a glimmer of hope in that if the Liberal conservative party wins but needs to form government with one of the true right wing minor parties. This outcome is more or less Australia’s only hope. I truly think that Australia is the Western nation most likely to fall down the socialist hellhole which is normally restricted to 2nd or 3rd world nations.
The reason for this is that Australia has never had to battle on its own ground to create its existence as a nation. At federation in 1901, several separate Australian states came together and agreed on a nation binding agreement, the Australian constitution, and thus a new nation was formed. This process was voluntary. It is the only time in the history of the world that such a process has happened voluntarily. Of course, the British Empire was at the heights of its considerable power and was rather invested in a peaceful process, but it is still impressive nonetheless.
Unfortunately it has doomed us. It has doomed us because we have never had to fight and suffer for what we have, and when it’s handed to you on a plate then with each successive generation you begin to take it for granted. Lessons learned in the past reach down for a very long time over future generations. For example, the Germans are very careful with their economy because they have suffered through the awfulness of hyperinflation. They know not only that it can happen but what it is actually like.
The USA had to fight for its existence against not only the British, but the Mexicans, the Spanish, the Indians, and finally each other. Britain has has that awfulness many times over. Ditto for every European nation as anyone with only a cursory interest in the Holy Roman Empire knows. Even Canada had to fight a few decent battles here and there as Great Britain, the USA and France all tried to make the land their own.
But not Australia. We had a dream run. We became “the lucky country”, a good fortune that we erroneously believed was permanent. But native Australians do not know how bad things can get. People in general cannot imagine that which is awful, let alone that which is beyond awful. We have a unified nation on an entire continent that holds the vast majority of resources in the Asian sphere, and we are about to throw it all away. I have no doubt that this is the journey. I am not writing to state that if we do this or that then we might avert a catastrophe. No, the catastrophe is already in play. Australia is about to get socialism good and hard, Venezuelan style. And then it will be a terrible civil war that will drag in our powerful Asian neighbors as they scramble for the resources. It will be the scramble for Australia.
A sombre tone for the hawt chicks & links but one is entitled to be just a little despondent at a crucial moment when Australia takes a big circle of the drain.

James Charles and bursting the gay bubble.

The Other McCain has an interesting piece about James Charles, a teenage homosexual makeup influencer, whatever the hell that is, whose career got torched this week due to infighting, bitching, and general backstabbing in the camp fashion crowd. Apparently our young homo pissed off a former loyal ally by aligning himself with the ex-ally’s main competitor. In order to turn the tables, the jilted woman revealed that the makeup boy routinely makes a habit of seducing and sleeping with heterosexual men.

Here he was openly bragging — on a YouTube channel with millions of subscribers — that he considers it “winning” to seduce heterosexual men, and yet no one would call him out on it, because you’re a hater if you find this offensive. You bigots need to get “woke” and realize that homosexuals have a right to pursue any partner who strikes their fancy.

I’ve been writing for some time about this predilection of homosexuals not just to sleep with straight men but the tactics that they employ to do so. For example:

Actions have consequences.

This is the best thing that I have seen so far this year. H/T to Raconteur Report.

Is this indicative of a general trend towards criminalizing abortion now? When the pendulum swings back it swings back hard.

Sorry Christian woman aged 32, nobody wants to marry you.

A Christian woman despairs at the scarcity of suitable husband material for herself and her cohorts – Where are the good Christian men? For men who are red-pilled, the clue to her problem is in the article title; she wants good men, obedient men, but not necessarily men who are good at being men.

Yet one important side-effect of all this that gets little attention is how tough this new environment has become for women, especially Christian women, to find good husbands. The situation is so dire there is now an emerging trend of women abandoning their faith and religious beliefs for the sake of romantic relationships.

Two things here. It is true that women in general really want to get married. But whether they desire to stay married is another question entirely, and the divorce rates coupled with the very high probability that the woman will torpedo the marriage has led men to come to the correct conclusion that it is a dud deal. Men aren’t abandoning marriage, they’ve just become a lot more careful in the selection process. We’re picky, sweethearts.

The apparent emerging trend of women abandoning their faith in order to shack up with anyone with a pulse merely underlines their general lack of loyalty. Women today are loyal in so far as it satisfies their short term desires. So a woman who will abandon her faith in order to get hitched is an extremely poor long term marriage prospect.
