EO Wilson, the Intellectual Giant from Birmingham, Turns 88

EO Wilson 

by Mary Maxwell, PhD, LLB

Back in 1994, when the conservationist Edward Wilson was approaching retirement age, I offered to produce a festschrift for him, with the 18 authors who had contributed to my book The Sociobiological Imagination. He said something to the effect “Are you kidding? I haven’t even started yet.”

True enough, he has gone on to publish major works since then, and even a novel — “Anthill.”

Consider his attempt to unite the sciences, in his book “Consilience’ (1998).  Consider his “the Social Conquest of Earth” (2012), and most importantly his new “Half Earth,” in which he suggests, wisely, that we set aside half of the space on this planet (not one big patch, but many little patches) to allow our fellow species to run free.

Time For An Apocalypse?

Time for an apocalypse — or what do UFOs and yet undisclosed technology have to do with the US FEDERAL RESERVE, quantitative easing (money printing), gold, silver, the global financial markets and the current geopolitical situation of the planet? [Read more…]

Baby Booties and a Mormon Critic

by Mary W Maxwell, PhD, LLB

I think there must not be many Mormon readers of Gumshoe News, as no one commented on my choice of photo for the October 14 article on the Electoral College. To support my argument that there should be a “cabinet” of laypersons in the US  — or Australia — I used a photo of “Family Meetings” taken from the Mormon Church. [Read more…]

Is Your Sky Organic?

By Dee McLachlan

This morning I had a relaxing brunch in my local cafe. I decided to go with their special: Free-range poached eggs on a bed of organic spinach on sourdough wholemeal spelt. This washed down with a Fair Trade soy latte. I didn’t notice any square clouds today though.

Roll Call, Australia

by Mary W Maxwell

The Port Arthur massacre of April 28, 1996 is an ongoing tragedy for all of us. It seems to me that there are many important persons who realize that there is something very rotten in the state of Denmark but who can’t face up to it. This would be a good time to face up to and get it over with. Lets do it! [Read more…]

2014 – A Year of Gumshoeing Without Fear or Favour

2014 was really my first year reporting news and trying to provide an alternative voice to the mainstream narrative. It was a year of hot issues, much learning and pleasant surprises (e.g. interviewing former PM Malcolm Fraser). I am very grateful to all who contributed, advised me along the way and kept me alert. There was a dovetailing of my articles with those of Mary Maxwell on such subjects as torture and law – and I thank those who emailed encouragement.

Left and Right Politics and Collectivism

Victorians (in the State of Victoria, Australia) will once again be voting tomorrow – in a choice between two sides of essentially the same team. It is thus a good time to remind ourselves about the concept of collectivism.

In this 80 minute video interview, legendary author G. Edward Griffin explains how his research, which spans no less than 5 decades, has revealed a banking elite obsessed with enforcing a world government under a collectivist model that will crush individualism and eventually institute martial law as a response to the inevitable backlash that will be generated as a result of a fundamental re-shaping of society.

The Manufacturing of Fear

Is constant bad news crippling our emotional and cognitive resilience – plus creating lame and ineffective politicians?

I happened to be watching the Chaser’s Media Circus on the ABC last night – and they had Tracey Spicer, a long time Australian news reader, on the show. She was trying to place the order of news items in a game called ‘Out Of Order’, when she came up with this statement:

“This is a really tough one… a boss at a radio station once told me, ‘You need to scare the audience into listening to you. Its all about fear. You’ve got to frighten them more’….” (extract below)

Austyranny – the New Australia

Something is rotten in the state of Denmark Down Under” and thus I can only come to one conclusion: We now live under a tyranny, and that our government has most likely has been influenced by an overseas shadow criminal element.

Welcome to the new hip and safe “Team Austyranny”. [Read more…]

Murderers, Thieves and Terror Laws

Long-time Trends Expert Gerald Celente here below being interviewed on Talk Digital Network (below is an extract from)

He calls Washington (and the duopoly government) murderers and thieves – how they sanction murderous wars and will steal every cent from the people.
