Conspiracy Check: Rothschilds

Nathaniel Philip Rothschild

Are the Rothschilds the richest family in the world? There is enough evidence to cause suspicion.

The Rothschild conspiracy is extensive and spans several hundred years. Some claim they funded both sides of World War One, some claim they created the federal reserve as a way of indebting the most powerful people in the world. While it is commonly stated they lost most of their fortune through catastrophic investment blunders, some of their recent activity indicates otherwise.

According to Snopes, “only one member of the Rothschild family is included among Forbes’ 2015 list of the world’s billionaires: Benjamin de Rothschild, who was ranked at number #1121 with a net worth of $1.61 billion.” Yet here are some quick, simple facts that hint at a form of usury that could be underlying the modern world.

From the Rothschild family Wikipedia page:

“January 2010, Nathaniel Philip Rothschild bought a substantial share of the Glencore mining and oil company’s market capitalisation.”

The Glencore Wikipedia page states their revenue is US$215.11 billion. To have the money to buy a “substantial share,” Nathaniel Rothschild alone would have be in the top ten richest people in the world. He is only one of 11 living Rothchilds. Yet in the top ten Forbes list of richest people he is not included.

Husband to Katherine de Rothschild, Marcus Agius, was the former chairman of Barclays, a multinational investment bank worth roughly $1 trillion dollars, the most powerful transnational corporation in the world.  The current Chairman is Nigel Higgens, ex-CEO of Rothschild & Co.

It seems hard to deny that the Rothschilds are far wealthier than is being acknowledged.

 


Happiness is Racist. Here’s What To Do About It.

I would like to acknowledge this was written on the land of the Neanderthal people.

Mental illness is skyrocketing in the West, while rates in other parts of the world largely remain the same. This in many ways is an unfortunate fact, but if one were to look closely there are many obvious upsides to white unhappiness.

It is saddening to consider what happiness implies. Our culture and people live at the expense of others, and in a truly just society, those who live contently would not choose to disregard the hardships of minorities at the hands of whites. To enjoy one’s privilege is a privilege in itself, and celebrating it equates to emotional exploitation. Perhaps this can be likened to that of a king who has a banquet of exotic food to choose from every night, while the citizens of the kingdom eat potatoes and small rocks for dinner.

Yes, white people are guilty. This does not vary. They could be activists in minority communities. They could be putting their life on the line to deliver food to children in the Congo. Yet their entire being is founded on the tears of others, the very privilege that allowed them to become who they are. Not to mention the white savior complex, a racist mental condition in which whites imagine themselves as do-gooders who want to rescue others from their inferior circumstances.

And how do we represent happiness? Perhaps the Smile is long overdue for critical analysis.

Smiling has always been problematic in the arena of social activism. Feminism understood this in that it rejects the notion women are obliged to Smile by a patriarchal system. The Smile has disappeared slowly over time from the faces of women who wanted to convey a particular message: we are not happy. This took multiple waves of feminism to achieve and is indeed one of the greater accomplishments of the century thus far.

Yet the Smile persists in other arenas. The disappearance of the Smile in feminism could equate to not only discontentment with the patriarchy but also systematic racism, but there may need to be some clarification around the matter. A social media campaign of frowning selfies may be a start. But this would still not address the issue of other whites showing off their gleeful expressions online, in the streets, and everywhere we look. Most likely Conservatives.

The road ahead will be long and arduous. Happiness has been part of Western civilization since the beginning of time. It is natural for people of color to attempt to fake happiness as a way of dealing with the difficulties of their reality, but this is a privilege we must not abuse.

Watch this space.


The Moral Division Between the Christian Right and Secular Liberals

Unhappiness and secular leftism

When everybody feels like a victim and is always looking for someone to blame, its only natural the rates of depression will go up. Social justice warriors are set on the idea that everybody except a white straight male is oppressed, and that the white straight male is the one responsible for the oppression. Furthermore, when they perpetuate the narrative that they are social outcasts, shamed by the world and hated by bigots, the feelings of alienation only continue to grow. But when it comes to unhappiness and liberalism, there may be a much bigger factor at play.

Secular liberals believe the traditional family, proven effective virtually since the beginning of time, is actually destructive and unhealthy. Masculinity and femininity are considered sexist or weak, and abortion should be casual, free and guiltless. Casual encounters through Tinder is living in hedonistic joy, and spending hours a day on porn sites is normal. Celebrate obesity, eat all you want, take drugs and drink to make yourself feel better. Display every accomplishment on Facebook, take a half-naked photo for Instagram and see how many likes you get. In the end we die anyway, so we might as well enjoy ourselves. Because there’s no God but atheism.

Such is the thought process of the leftist-dominated West. And it is only natural mental illness is now an epidemic. The values and habits of people are incomparably different from what they used to be, before the internet, entertainment on demand and postmodernism. Anything reminiscent of the past is labelled boring or old fashioned, and the live-for-the-moment ethos is symbolized on billboards, Netflix and in academia. Much of the economy sells instant gratification hits designed to shorten attention spans, elevate impatience and keep people coming back for another hit. Dopamine is the drug the left is peddling; easy solutions that feel good in the short term, yet make things worse in the long run. Again, this doesn’t matter because there’s only one life, and in the faith of atheism there is no moral code.

Happiness and conservative Christians

This is where conservatism differs, and Christianity also. They overlap in several ways, perhaps the most noteworthy being the concept that patience is a virtue. The idea that we must suffer now to gain rewards later can be connected to the natural adversity/reward dichotomy necessary for people to reconcile the good with the bad. It can be said anything worth doing isn’t easy, to paraphrase Republican president Theodore Roosevelt. Conservatism acknowledges that there aren’t any easy answers, contrary to liberal rally cries such as “Tax the rich,” “Raise the minimum wage”or “Free healthcare.” Conservative political, social and economic theory supports working through hard times as a collective and reaping the benefits long term, understanding if results are instantaneous then there will be a crash to follow.

Similarly, Christianity warns against everything the left tends to cherish: ego, excessive consumption, pride, immodesty, intoxication, lustfulness, the self over the collective, anti-natalism and the destruction of gender roles. For centuries Christianity was used as the authoritative moral compass in the form of Christian theocracies. The age of enlightenment led to the separation of church and state in Europe, and an influx of humanist values took place, closely related to concepts like individualism and liberty. While these concepts allowed the West to grow intellectually, morality became superficial and surface-level. People invented ideas about what they felt was right in their own views rather than that led by a fatherly, tough-love God, one who will punish those who take the easy-route to fulfill their base desires. Through solipsism, skepticism, nihilism and existentialism, Western philosophers continued to develop the idea that one decides for themselves what the meaning of their life is, which has led to a pursuit of instant gratification.

The left uses ideas originating in the Bible such as equality, acceptance and universality, yet it is a self-aggrandizing interpretation of these values in how it believes its own movement to be a replacement for God. Where there is no God people create their own rules, which in turn leads to misery and conflict. It is somewhat analogous to how fatherless children are often rebellious, or when children set the standard for their own playtime. The totalitarian push for the acceptance of new ideas is an example of bastardized Christianity; they will only tolerate those who agree with them. It is somewhat reminiscent of Nietzsche’s “There are no absolute truths,” a contradictory statement claiming that very statement to be an absolute truth. In other words, it means “There are no absolute truths, except mine.”

It may be unfair to define secular liberalism as a complete dismissal of Christ. Any noteworthy historian is aware Jesus Christ was a real person, one that arguably had the most impact on the world than any other human being. There is a subset of Christianity named liberal Christianity that disregards the theology of the Bible, such as the fact Mary was a virgin or that Christ rose from the dead. They take an academic approach in stating while the Bible is full of embellishment and outright lies, Jesus was a great moral teacher who one can emulate even if they think he was a raving lunatic with a God complex. Regardless of any logical inconsistencies, one could argue this is better than ignoring Christian values altogether. But upon examining the set of political values they associate themselves with, it seems antithetical to what Christ intended.

The rebirth of Christianity

Christianity is seeing a re-emergence as mental health in the secular world continues to decline. Movements such as reactionary, traditionalist and paleo-conservatism are gaining popularity, all of which take the “conserve” concept one step further by wishing for a return to simpler times. These movements encourage young people to replace porn with exercise, obesity with healthy eating, social media with reading. They encourage each other to live clean, wholesome lives focused on self-improvement and discipline. It is an acknowledgement that what is considered the norm in contemporary society, encouraged by commercials and media, is a deceptive trap intended to enslave for the sake of profit, and that consumers are happy to comply as long as it offers escape. While there has been a great deal of positive progress when it comes to freedom of choice, the left is addicted to change. The “If it ain’t broke, don’t fix it” philosophy no longer seems to apply.

In the Bible, it is suggested that humanity is granted free will, and one can make a choice whether they go to heaven or hell. The liberals are right in this respect; freedom is a human right granted by God. It is not unlike something a loving father would do, like letting a child eat all the chocolate they want until they realize it makes them feel sick. But at a certain point, if the father is absent for too long, the sin of greed will set in. Then the child becomes diabetic.


What the Research Says about Transgenderism

Sexuality and mental illness

We live in a world where to not accept trans women as real women is considered “transphobic,” a word that has only become popularized in the last several years. The origins of the phobia suffix comes from psychologist George Weinberg who coined the phrase “homophobia” in the 1960’s. In many ways it can be seen as an attempt to turn the tables on those who claimed homosexuality was a mental disorder, classifying homophobia as a mental disorder in itself. This was a time in which psychoanalysis and Freudian theory, originating from the Weimar Republic’s Frankfurt school, was experiencing a surge in popularity. Marxism and Freudian theory have frequently interlinked over the years, referred to by scholars as “Freudo-Marxism.” It is notable that these schools of thought are called theories because they have never been scientifically proven.

60 years later, “homophobia” can be considered part of the mainstream lexicon. This is despite inconclusive studies related to what the causes of homosexuality are, whether social, genetic or a combination of both. Furthermore, it is taboo to openly contemplate the possibility of homosexuality to be a mental disorder, and one can easily become ostracized by their community for voicing such an opinion. But before coming to any concrete conclusions on the issue, a new effort to normalize transgenderism has emerged in mainstream media. This normalization has lead to the “PC” notion that one must accept anybody who wishes to emulate the opposite sex through extensive, painful surgery, an idea which is pushed by celebrities, fictional TV shows and left wing activists. Essentially what this normalizing does is encourage people to commit themselves to irreversible decisions, despite there being clear evidence that transgenderism is a form of mental illness.

The Diagnostic and Statistical Manual of Mental Disorders, a publication at the center of psychology which is updated every several years, removed transgenderism as a mental disorder in 2013 edition. However, it was simply replaced with “gender dysphoria” which states the criteria for the condition in children as “A marked incongruence between one’s experienced/expressed gender and assigned gender, of at least 6 months’ duration” as well as other factors such as “A strong preference for the toys, games, or activities stereotypically used or engaged in by the other gender.” The difference between transgenderism and gender dysphoria is that the latter is “associated with clinically significant distress or impairment in social, school or other important areas of functioning,” which ironically is the very symptom left wing activists claim trans people are subjected to by a transphobic society. This means transgenderism contains exactly the same criteria as a mental illness.

Mental health benefits of surgery are only short term

Perhaps it would be reasonable for one to pursue surgery if it changed their life for the better. However, suicide rates remain high both before and after transitioning, and the idea that transitioning prevents suicide is a myth. On the leftist “encyclopedia” website Wikipedia, it is stated “A 2014 study carried out by the Williams Institute (a UCLA think tank) found that 41% of transgender people had attempted suicide, with the rate being higher among people who experienced discrimination in access to housing or healthcare, harassment, physical or sexual assault, or rejection by family. [97] A 2019 follow-up study found that transgender people who wanted and received gender-affirming medical care had substantially lower rates of suicidal thoughts and attempts.”[98] Yet when one reads the linked studies, it is only stated that suicide rates declined for a year after surgery. This could be seen as a placebo effect in which the patient feels their problems are resolved, and any trauma from the past is likely to reveal itself after adjusting to their new gender. One of the studies actually contradicts the claim on Wikipedia, as can be seen below:

Suicide is higher among people who have received treatment

The study “Long-Term Follow-Up of Transsexual Persons Undergoing Sex Reassignment Surgery: Cohort Study in Sweden” found “The overall mortality for sex-reassigned persons was higher during follow-up than for controls of the same birth sex, particularly death from suicide. Sex-reassigned persons also had an increased risk for suicide attempts and psychiatric inpatient care.” While the study makes it a point to say “the results should not be interpreted such as sex reassignment per se increases morbidity and mortality. Things might have been even worse without sex reassignment,” it shows transitioning as a treatment for a mental condition is ineffective. The claim that suicide rates may have been higher is unsubstantiated, and the claim that “transphobia” is the cause of the suicides is contentious because it implies those who view transgenderism as a mental illness are at fault. This is like convincing a paranoid schizophrenic they are right in their delusion that people on the radio are talking about them, in the hopes they would feel relief from believing they are not mentally ill.

A new direction

It is obvious that harassment of any kind can worsen the mental health of an individual. However, acting as though they are perfectly sane when research says they are not is harmful. In a world where removing the stigma entirely from changing ones gender is considered politically correct, there are and will continue to be suicides among the mentally ill. It should go without saying long-term introspection and therapy should be conducted before making the decision to transition, and children transitioning should be made illegal across the world. The idea that trans people are heroes who should be applauded is misguided, and it cannot be forgotten transition surgery goes against the very nature of biology. Marxist ideas that aim to completely uproot tradition and society will unlikely cause many future problems, and while targeted bullying is sadistic, the normalization of transgenderism is another crack in the wall of Western civilization.


Welcome

The Ireland Post was created as a reaction to the intensifying dominance of left-wing ideology. I use “ideology” rather than simply “media” because the liberal bias has infiltrated every aspect of Western life. The very basis of our culture is said to originate from evil motives in the form of colonialism, and we are taught from a young age how our people must continually atone for our ancestors’ mistakes. Entertainment is contaminated with Left wing propaganda, search engines favor the “politically correct”, and conglomerates are forced to virtue signal in order to maintain profits.

This website will counter most mainstream perspectives by looking at the facts. The Ireland Post is not biased in the sense that it hopes to convince others of a particular narrative. Rather, it simply ignores societal pressure to present an inoffensive view of society, instead taking an unflinching look at the realities of contemporary life.

Enjoy your stay.
