Australian eSafety Commissioner Tells Word Economic Forum Audience It is Time to Recalibrate Free Speech

Australia has an eSafety Commissioner named Julie Inman-Grant.  While delivering remarks to the World Economic Forum summit in Davos, Switzerland, she outlined a new on-line era where free speech would need to be “recalibrated,” and the ability to be free from something called “on-line violence.”  WATCH:

.

For the past several years we have noted a progressive, totalitarian, shift in speech, specifically a redefinition of the word “violence.”  Speech the leftists do not like, they call violence; and violence the leftists support, they call speech.   As a result, the overlay of a newly recalibrated on-line world for speech and violence would be modified accordingly.

Speech the Big Tech consortium would define as against their views would be considered on-line violence and thus controlled by the governmental guardians of the internet like the eSafety Commissioner.  As you can see in the video below, “violence” now includes their perception of something happening on a metaphysical level. An emotional impact.  They have a spiritual avatar that they feel the drive to defend from the viewpoints of the Others.

Federal Judge Blocks Biden Administration from Lifting Title 42 Immigration Control, DOJ Will Appeal

Federal Judge Blocks Biden Administration from Lifting Title 42 Immigration Control, DOJ Will Appeal

A federal district court judge in Louisiana has blocked the Biden administration from lifting the CDC Title-42 restriction at the southern U.S. border.

The Title-42 rule blocks illegal aliens based on the COVID pandemic threat.  The CDC wants to lift that order allowing an additional surge of illegal aliens to cross the border.

WASHINGTON – […] The pandemic-related health order, which was implemented in March 2020 to control the spread of Covid, was set to expire on Monday. The measure gave the U.S. the authority to immediately expel asylum seekers without a legal process, and Friday’s ruling means an even longer waiting time for migrants seeking refuge in the United States.

Louisiana U.S. District Judge Robert R. Summerhays, an appointee of former President Donald Trump, ruled that the restrictions must stay in place until a lawsuit by 24 states, led by Arizona, Louisiana and Missouri, is resolved in the courts. In the April 3 lawsuit, filed after the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention announced plans to lift the public health order, the states argued the policy needed to remain to avoid “wave of illegal migration and drug trafficking.” (read more)

The White House announced the DOJ will immediately appeal Summerhays’ decision. However, it’s unlikely the restrictions will be lifted by Monday as previously planned by the CDC.

Here’s the White House statement:

White House – “The Administration disagrees with the court’s ruling, and the Department of Justice has announced that it will appeal this decision. The authority to set public health policy nationally should rest with the Centers for Disease Control, not with a single district court. However, in compliance with the court’s injunction, the Biden Administration will continue to enforce the CDC’s 2020 Title 42 public health authority pending the appeal. This means that migrants who attempt to enter the United States unlawfully will be subject to expulsion under Title 42, as well as immigration consequences such as removal under Title 8.

As the appeal proceeds, the Department of Homeland Security will continue planning for the eventual lifting of Title 42 in light of CDC’s public health judgment, at which point anyone who attempts to enter the country unlawfully will be subject to Title 8 Expedited Removal proceedings, if they do not have grounds to remain in the United States.” (link)

Christianity vs Woke-ianity

A concise rundown of how woke ideology tries to supplant Christian faith, offering a form of salvation based on how hard you can virtue-signal your compassion for those considered to be oppressed.

Popular culture teaches that you can understand the world by dividing people into two groups — the OPPRESSED and the OPPRESSORS. When you realise this is how the world is arranged, you are WOKE.

You can work out who belongs to which group — either oppressed or oppressor — based on their identity.

  • Race
  • Gender
  • Sexual Orientation
  • Immigration Status
  • Disability
  • … and so on.

Some people are part of more than one oppressed group. This is where INTERSECTIONALITY comes in.

peak woke

Intersectionality measures a person’s level of oppression, based on how many oppressed groups they belong to.

For example, a black man is oppressed by virtue of his blackness. But he is not as oppressed as a black female lesbian, since he belongs to only one oppressed group while she belongs to three.

Hierarchy

The degree to which you are oppressed determines your level of MORAL AUTHORITY.

The more categories of oppression you identify with, the more moral authority you have.

This is why people often preface what they are about to say with: “Speaking as a (insert oppressed identity group here) …”

“Speaking as a white male” gives you zero moral authority even though what you say next might have great validity.

“Speaking as an indigenous woman” gives you a great deal of moral authority even though what you say next might be complete hogwash.

peak woke

So when a person prefaces their remarks with that statement, they are establishing their moral authority by pointing out which oppressed group they belong to.

The more oppressed someone is, the more moral authority they have.

But watch this …

The more oppressed someone is, the less MORAL RESPONSIBILITY they have for their actions.

That is why abuse in indigenous communities, for instance, is almost never spoken about.

It is a taboo subject. To talk about it is to apportion responsibility to people who, by means of belonging to an oppressed group, cannot possibly be held morally responsible.

Slap a Sticker On It

so woke

If you do not have moral authority, you can purchase it by surrendering to those who have it.

This is called being WOKE and you do it by VIRTUE SIGNALLING.

Virtue Signalling is taking pains to communicate that you are a good person despite being white, or male or heterosexual. And it is how you purchase moral authority that you do not have.

super woke

JESUS cared about the oppressed, but Woke-ianity is nothing like Christianity.

WOKE-IANITY claims our identity as humans is rooted in race and gender and sexuality and so on — features that differ from person to person.

Christianity claims our identity as humans is rooted in God’s image — something we all share.

So while Woke-ianity places individuals in groups and then pits one group against another (this is called IDENTITY POLITICS), Christianity insists that every individual is unique and that we are all equal

  • Equally created by God
  • Equally valued by God
  • Equally guilty of sin against God
  • Equally deserving of punishment from God
  • Equally able to find grace and mercy from God through Jesus

Moralising

Woke-ianity defines SIN as oppression, and whiteness as original sin.

So Woke-ianity regards Biblical practices such as discipleship, leadership and correction as sinful expressions of power if the speaker is from an oppressor group.

At the same time, Woke-ianity excuses jealousy, anger, bitterness and envy if those expressing it are from an oppressed group.

CHRISTIANITY defines sin as anything that violates God’s design. Moreover, Christianity insists that because of Adam and Eve’s sin we are all guilty, regardless of which identity group we belong to.

Woke-inaity gets the problem wrong, and so it gets the solution wrong.

Woke-ianity says oppressors are guilty. The oppressed are not.

Salvation for the oppressed can be found through SOCIAL JUSTICE here and now. This is called ACTIVISM.

The oppressors can never be saved since oppressors cannot stop being white, or male, or heterosexual.

They must become ALLIES of oppressed groups and DO THE WORK of anti-racism or whatever.

But this works-based salvation is no salvation, since it never ends.

Yes, Jesus cared about the oppressed. But Woke-ianity is not Christianity. It’s a fraud believed by Christians for whom the softness of their hearts is matched only by the softness of their heads.

woke Jesus

Christianity says we are all equally guilty before God, but that we can all be equally saved through faith in Jesus. It doesn’t matter who you are, where you’ve been or what you’ve done, it’s equal footing at the cross of Jesus.

Bono Showed up in Kyiv, Ukraine Along with Justin From Canada

Bono Showed up in Kyiv, Ukraine Along with Justin From Canada

It’s the new cool thing. It’s the latest rage on Insta. All the most virtuous people are doing it. Don’t miss out on your opportunity to support the movement. Travel to Kyiv, Ukraine, snap a few selfies… Social media archives will record history.  According to pop culture, the Facebook, Insta, Twitter and YouTube social media campaign to save Kyiv, is bigger than the Berlin wall falling.   The CIA, DoS, DHS and Nina Jankowicz have declared it true.

When the conflict in Ukraine first began, the White House announced the victor would be the one who could “tell a better story.”  The war in Ukraine would be determined by who was more likeable on social media.  From that moment forth, winning the PR battle has been the focus.

Within days of the White House declaring the strategy, Google, DuckDuckGo, Facebook, Instagram and Twitter all announced they would filter and block content that did not support World War Reddit.  Anyone who was not supporting Ukraine and “churchill in a T-Shirt” ran the risk of being deplatformed; and so, the strategy has continued through today.

After writing pro-Ukraine poems for Nancy Pelosi to read to congress, now Bono travels to Ukraine. I said on March 1st when Bono shows up, that’s the moment when you know western propaganda over Ukraine will soon apex. Bono’s appearance in any State Dept/CIA construct usually precedes the bombing of the proverbial milk factories and subsequent “babies are casualties of war” narrative.  Well, today:

Anyone else notice that Bono is slowly morphing into Robin Williams?  I digress…

.

Bono wasn’t the only one who showed up to celebrate World War Reddit in Kyiv today.  Justin from Canada was also there…

Trudeau: “The incredible courage captivating the essence of what it means to be Ukraine”...

Zelenskyy: “yeah, yeah… yada, yada,… hurry up Bono’s here and that’s a better photo-op“..

.

Russians be like…

Weirdest war ever.

CNN Claims Pro-Life Supporters Will Turn Violent with SCOTUS Victory, Amish Extremists now Threatening ANTIFA Peacekeepers

CNN Claims Pro-Life Supporters Will Turn Violent with SCOTUS Victory, Amish Extremists now Threatening ANTIFA Peacekeepers

No, it’s not opposite day.  This example is just another example of how the Ministry of Truth operates.  Political violence is speech, unless actual speech is heard from their opposition; then, it becomes violence.  War is peace. Water is dry, etc. George Orwell sighs. {Direct Rumble Link}

Knowing there is an increased likelihood of violence incited by far-left democrat activists and the White House, CNN moves their advance narrative engineering team into place to lay the blame for violence at the feet of their political opposition.  With Roe -v- Wade potentially being overturned, Amish extremists are now going to lay siege to the peaceful assembly of ANTIFA in DC, or something equally stupid.  WATCH:

.

If the issues were not serious, this nonsense from CNN would be funny.  Far left activists have been threatening the Supreme Court justices and the White House has been provoking their political allies to keep up the anger against the court.  As a result, every sub-chapter of leftist political activism has been triggered to a state of rage and grievance.  The rhetoric and hatred expressed toward the justices on the court has been extreme.

However, CNN redefines the mob by calling them “right-wing”, the exact opposite of who is making the threats.

Keep in mind, none of the previous ANTIFA or Black Lives Matter violence could take place without the expressed support from the FBI.  If the FBI wanted to stop riots, political violence or the unlawful intimidation of federal judges, they could.

It would be very easy for the FBI to intercept the people making threats and arrest them for intimidation of federal judges.  18 U.S.C. § 1503Whoever . . . corruptly or by threats or force, or by any threatening letter or communication, influences, obstructs, or impedes, or endeavors to influence, obstruct, or impede, the due administration of justice, shall be (guilty of an offense).”   The reason the FBI and DOJ are staying silent, is because the FBI and DOJ support the targeting of the Supreme Court.  It really is that simple.

It should be alarming how the Executive Branch of the United States Government is openly targeting the Judicial Branch of the United States Government, but that point seems to be completely missed by everyone.   U.S. Attorney General Merrick Garland standing aside while extremists in the democrat party attack supreme court justices only highlights how political the DOJ and FBI have become.

Last night, Fox News host Tucker Carlson drew attention to the media portrayal and the violent targeting now condoned by DHS, DOJ, FBI and the White House. {Direct Rumble Link} – WATCH:

Elon Musk Entry into Social Media Has Triggered Techtonic Plates to Start Shifting

Elon Musk Entry into Social Media Has Triggered Techtonic Plates to Start Shifting

Ever since Elon Musk announced his intention to purchase a social media platform, take it private as a company and emerge as a new free speech communication force, things in the tech world have been all, well, a twitter (pun intended).

It’s not just the potentially game-changing social conversation shift that is driving the news; where –GASP– actual independent expression of opinion might be permitted in the digital space; there’s also a major worry amid the preexisting platform control offices of media about simultaneously arriving financial impacts.

Business Insider has reported that Facebook parent company Meta has initiated a hiring freeze through the remainder of this year.  Additionally, following the news that woke Netflix is being rejected by subscribers, suddenly payroll obligations are a concern over there.

This comes on the heels of Amazon, and the omnipresent AWS cloud services, looking a little shaky as a business model, amid reports they have “overstaffed” their operation, according to the Washington Post.  And as we would expect, the ever tech-heavy stock market is being driven into the basement by a series of tremors in the land of all thing’s Bezos.

Techtonic tremors are surfacing everywhere while people watch for the potential of an actual, dare we say, competitive eruption?   Oh my.

The rag-tag rebel alliance is reporting to be nearing completed assembly of the ultra-MAGA Truth Social platform hopefully by the end of this month with a dedicated web application allowing all devices to connect to a larger scaled version of the Trump-inspired network.  It appears Truth Social is using the combined technology partnership with Rumble cloud operations and a partnership for dedicated server banks.

Into this maelstrom of technological competition, enters the world’s most technologically cutting-edge entrepreneur, who also happens to be the world’s richest man, who also happens to be building out his own satellite internet platform called StarLink.

The scale of consequence for Elon Musk purchasing Twitter, is akin to the metaphorical John Galt purchasing the ma’ Bell telecommunications system of the 70’s.  Yup, things be a changin’…. the Eye of Sauron, aka Google, is being challenged.

Even the Fourth Branch of Government recently appears to have taken a few body blows.   The risk of corrupt and cancerous everything being connected to corrupt and cancerous everything else becomes problematic when one unstable card in the house collapses.  If the U.S. intel community lose control of the Twitter narrative engineering platform, things get sketchy for all the dependents.

Meanwhile, the serious and stable tech engineers who never got down with the wokeism, yet kept their heads low to avoid isolation and social detection, are now starting to smile as fellow Asperger’s ally Elon Musk shows them how to have fun again, again.

It doesn’t take a rocket scientist to understand the human resource flight path toward Twitter for bright engineering minds that value innovation over social isolation.  A whole lot of people are currently stuck amid a tribe of co-workers perpetually angry about something stupid.

FORTUNE – […] It’s still unclear how a Musk-run Twitter might impact the company’s ability to retain current staff and recruit new employees. The company presented the takeover as a potential threat to its staffing abilities in an SEC filing Monday

But at least casual interest in open positions at the company has skyrocketed since the Tesla billionaire showed serious interest in taking over the company. 

In a statement to Fortune, Zhao clarified that interest is defined by the average daily clicks on Twitter job postings on the platform, compared to the average daily job clicks in a March 2022 baseline prior to the news breaking of Musk’s plans for the company.

Though clicks do not necessarily correlate to actual job applications submitted, and likely reflect current media attention, the increase shows that people appear to be interested not just in the media story, but in work available at the company.  

“Say what you will about Elon, he does have a large fanbase of ppl excited to work for him,” Zhao tweeted. “He’s much more likely to capitalize on that attraction as CEO than owner.”

On Friday, Musk shared some of his own thoughts about hiring at Twitter, sharing Fortune’s reporting.

“If Twitter acquisition completes, company will be super focused on hardcore software engineering, design, infosec & server hardware,” he tweeted on Friday morning. (more)

The Real Oppression, and How It Works

The Real Oppression, and How It Works

Cultural Marxism has thoroughly infected our political system, making people fearful to speak up against the prevailing progressive narrative. Minority groups reinforce each other’s fringe causes, to the detriment of majority constituents.

How is it that tiny groups of people — such as the LGBTQ lobby for instance — exert such huge influence on the national agenda?

The answer is in the way left-leaning political parties now operate.

The Left used to defend workers against exploitation from bosses. But when capitalism created a burgeoning middle class, workers didn’t feel exploited.

The Left needed a new constituency.

So they focused on becoming the Party of ‘fairness’, promising to represent oppressed minorities.

Cultural Marxism

This is where the Left derives its moral authority — as defenders of oppressed minorities.

And so left-wing parties — whether the Democrats in America or the ALP in Australia — started collecting single-issue victimhood voters.

All of these oppressed minorities demand that their obsession — defund the police, net-zero emissions, men in women’s sports etc — take precedence. And their obsessions are as numerous as they are ridiculous.

As a result, the Left is now primarily concerned with defending the increasingly neurotic tics of increasingly implausible minority groups.

The Left reason that if they can collect enough of these tiny groups, they will have sufficient votes to win power.

And in return for votes, they promise to impose the crazy demands of their grab-bag of minorities on the entire populace.

To summarise …

LGBTQIA+ activists are cobbled together with climate justice warriors who are cobbled together with animal rights activists who are cobbled together with race-baiters and so on.

Each of these groups might represent only 1% of the population on their own, but if you can scoop up enough of them to make around 40% of the vote, suddenly they are a major political force.

The party is then obliged to support the crazed demands of all these groups if and when it wins government.

This is how a left-wing party, if it wins government, ends up imposing the demands of 1% of the population on the other 99%.

But it’s more interesting than that.

Banding Together

Recently, in researching to write about LGBTQ awareness days, I discovered that gay rights groups list — among the various lesbian awareness and pansexual visibility days they promote — Indigenous rights days.

Why are gays promoting Indigenous rights? The answer is simple: Horse trading.

Every minority group trades political acceptance for its cause in exchange for supporting everyone else’s cause.

So Indigenous activists get support for Constitutional recognition and a treaty, while men who wear dresses get support for being on the girls’ football team.

Feminists get late-term abortions, while climate activists get to demand car-free days in major cities of the world.

And the laptop class, who are paid six-figure sums to work from home, get to make everyone wear masks.

They each agree to support the other’s crazy demands in the expectation that their particular crazy demand will be realised if and when the Party wins power.

This helps to explain cancel culture.

Censorship

Cancel culture is really a cooperative of crazies working together to guard their own brand of insanity which they know very well would never be permitted, let alone legislated, in a healthy society. By working together to destroy norms, they normalise their own pathologies.

Now you understand why political leaders on the Left are so afraid to define a woman. It’s not that they don’t believe gender is a fixed biological reality. It’s just that they don’t want to upset the bucket of minorities they hope to carry to the ballot box.

That is why lefty politicians will accept crazy ideas and even defend them, despite the fact they don’t believe them.

In Australia recently, the Labor leader was asked if men could get pregnant. He answered “no”, but in such a way that his displeasure at being asked the question was clearly evident.

Why did he resent the question?

Because it backed him into a corner where he would be forced to deny one of the core tenants of trans people — a tiny group he is counting on to win power.

Let me conclude with a final observation.

The Left expects us to believe they are the ones standing against oppression. This is the exact opposite of what is happening.

After all, when 1% of the country gets to tell everyone else how to live, that’s real oppression.
