The UN Migration Pact

Dec 10, 2018

Let’s Get Real About Islamic Terrorism

Nov 11, 2018

Face it folks: we have a Muslim problem. We have an Islam problem. And the problem is not with “extremists” but with the religion itself. The religion commands its followers to kill the infidel. Its founder led the way here,

More On the Melbourne Muslim Terror Attack

Nov 10, 2018

Islam and terrorism go together like, well, Islam and terrorism. While non-Muslims can commit acts of terror, and while not all Muslims are terrorists, we do know that the overwhelming majority of terrorist attacks since September 11 for example have

On the Sanctuary Movement

Oct 26, 2018

Beginning in the early 1980s, various political groups on the left, assisted by many religious groups on the left, started ignoring and resisting American immigration laws, viewing them as being immoral and discriminatory to Central Americans. They felt US laws

On the Central American Caravan

Oct 24, 2018

Hungary and Orban: Hope for the West

Aug 4, 2018

More than once when I have been with a group of concerned Christians and conservatives we have talked – only half in jest – about where we might go, given how bad things are getting. As Australia and so much

The Multi Cult and the Desolation of Europe

Jun 1, 2018

OK, another week, another dozen or so cases of Europe going down the gurgler, mainly because of patently failed multiculturalism policies, and a political ideology known as Islam. One can never write too often about all this, because the cases

Tommy Robinson and the Death of Britain

May 29, 2018

Less than a week ago English activist Tommy Robinson was sentenced to 13 months in prison. Given that he has been doing his best to warn about creeping sharia in general, and Islamic rape-gangs in particular, and that he will

The Islamic Republic of Sweden

May 25, 2018

How many articles have I written on Sweden and its Islamic takeover? Far too many, and it looks like I will keep having to do so. (OK, I just looked it up: I have 100 articles on Sweden on my

Islam, Immigration and the Death of Europe

Apr 24, 2018

As has been said, immigration without integration is an invasion. That is exactly what we find happening all throughout Europe. If foreigners enter host nations and do not seek to adopt the nation’s basic beliefs, core values and even languages,

Responding to the Islamisation of the West

Dec 27, 2017

Throughout much of the West major cities have large concrete blocks placed around high-traffic pedestrian areas. So what is that all about? Works of modern art? Not quite – they are security bollards. Security from what? Well, sadly, from basically

Jesus Was Not a Refugee

Dec 26, 2017

It has become routine at this time of the year for activists, social justice warriors, religious leftists and others to seek to politicise the Christmas story. Instead of simply rejoicing in the Incarnation and the arrival of the Messiah, many

Melbourne Terrorism and Truth Denial

Dec 22, 2017

The Paris Statement

Europe is in a real bad way. Secularism, immorality, porous borders, an inability to understand Islam for what it is, the rapid decline of Christianity, a loss of purpose and identity – these and other factors have resulted in a

Faith in Australia, and the Way Forward

Jun 27, 2017

The spiritual and religious makeup of a nation is not determined solely by a national census, but it can give us at least some rough ideas nonetheless. The results of the 2016 census are slowly being released, and today we

Wilders, the Dutch, and the Future of Europe

Mar 18, 2017

Times are a changing. After Brexit and Trump – two unexpected victories – other countries are now looking at radical political and social turnarounds. This is especially the case in Europe. We had one election there this week, and we

Some Sanity on the US Entry Restrictions

Feb 2, 2017

The lunar left has gone ballistic over the recent executive order of the Trump administration to restrict in very limited ways various arrivals into the US. You would have thought that he bombed Mecca, declared Islam to be a verboten
