Reviled, toxic Gillard image Oz Labor Party Begs for Mercy Marissa Calligeros via baz, Thursday, Mar 22 2012, 10:11pm
Begging has never been what could be described as a successful winning strategy to gain political leadership - LOL! However, in the most appalling political turn of events seen anywhere in the world -- probably in all political history -- an Australian, female-led (no reflection on strong, capable, Aussie women of integrity whatsoever), State Labor Government has taken to begging the public for consideration and admitting DEFEAT BEFORE the elections have been held -- My God!

Assange image The tragedy of WikiLeaks: it’s all about Assange! nano, Wednesday, Mar 21 2012, 11:57pm
The most enduring criticism of Assange by many former WikiLeaks members/volunteers and workers is that a brilliant digital idea somehow degenerated into a cult of personality media circus; it’s now all about Assange! (story and 1 image)

Truly, there is nothing new under the sun regarding human folly, perversity and imbecility. Consider some headlines in today’s alternative newswires; “Afghanistan Massacre - No One Asked Their Names,” Well, of course they didn’t, the first rule of war is to devalue then dehumanise your enemy that way it makes it easier to piss on their corpses, burn their Holy books and rape/slaughter their women and children – you mindless morons, which universe have you been living in since the criminal USA publicly and officially announced that killing 500,000 innocent Iraqi children “WAS WORTH IT?

text The Fear of Dissent and the Road to Totalitarianism frank, Monday, Mar 19 2012, 1:20am
It doesn’t get much worse than indefinite detention without trial or charge and ‘legal’ assassinations of citizens on secret executive order – even mass murdering Stalin couldn’t get-away with both of those draconian impositions on his people. But American whipped-dog SLAVES lap it up and beg for more! So, not unexpectedly, the latest 'order' puppet president to the plutocrats, Obama, has signed reinforces the totalitarian direction the nation is taking. Unrestrained by law or civil government, you are now officially dispossessed, signed, Emperor of Amerika, Barack Obama! (story and 6 comments)

text "Towbacks," a Radical but Effective Solution to Indonesian Corruption mitch, Thursday, Mar 15 2012, 8:13am
A very shrewd opposition proposal (policy) to tow people-smuggling vessels back to their point of origin has outraged Indonesia's foreign minister, who views the very effective solution to rampant Indonesian corruption, as "impossible!" However, we can ASSURE Indonesian FM, Marty Natalegawa, that the policy would not only gain popular support in Oz, but would be an extremely feasible, effective and simple solution to the ongoing problem of people smuggling. Perhaps corrupt Indonesian regulators, police, navy personnel and politicians may now review their odorous position with regard to the lucrative business of people smuggling!

Global un-Intelligence image Stratfor: Blood On Their Hands Khadija Sharife via sal, Sunday, Mar 11 2012, 8:21am
Even if we were to place epistemological and ethical questions aside, certain Stratfor's analysts are turning out to be rather twisted creatures. While some turn party tricks for intelligence, except in AIDS-infested Africa, others, such as Fred Burton – a counter-terrorism and security expert, alleged to frequently service US intelligence, are a tad aggressive. One of Fred's gems include: "The owner is a peacenik. He needs his head dunked in a full toilet bowl at Gitmo." So much for niceties. (story and 3 images)

text The War on America jeff, Saturday, Mar 10 2012, 10:27am
The USA has enshrined in its Constitution safeguards that should have prevented it falling into totalitarianism; I refer to the right of the people to bear arms and the Constitutional power invested in the population to remove any government – by force if necessary -- that subverts the values and principles upon which the nation was founded.

Gawd! First we had Chris Hedges 'tripping' on, orchestrated by the man to do nothing, the Occupy 'movement' -- the movement you have when you're not moving! Now we have once respected (and grounded, I thought) journalist, Pepe Escobar, tripping the light of unreason on corrupt Western lackey and Russian gangster, Vlad Putin!

circusbear2.jpg image Putin Wins, the People Lose uri, Tuesday, Mar 6 2012, 8:19am
Much in the same way as Obama won the US presidency and the majority of Americans lost, Putin is set for six years of more corruption and self-interest. ‘Left’ media outlets and journos are falling over themselves in joyful glee over Putin’s victory; Pepe Escobar could hardly contain himself on RT (video below) over the outcome of the Russian elections but the hard facts remain, corruption and self-interest rule Russia; you should follow the money straight to Wall St, American and European Banks – including, of course, Putin’s own wealth, most of which is in Western Banks and financial institutions, choke on some real facts you deluded, political clowns!

Libyan Rebels Desecrate WWII Allied Graves image Libya: The Immorality of Corporate Plunder judd, Sunday, Mar 4 2012, 9:16pm
The CRIMINAL obscenity that is corporate and banker controlled NATO and the US and its maniacal pursuit of corporate PROFIT and plunder has resulted in the world's most ghastly, horrendous crimes and injustices today; the Iraq travesty of over one million innocent civilians slaughtered speaks for itself; Obama's flagrantly criminal 'precision' Drone warfare campaign, which regularly slaughters innocent children and civilians continues unabated; but the Libyan obscenity that NATO and the US unleashed on the once FREE people of Libya has set a new standard in absolute degradation, horror and inhumanity.

Have you ever stopped and taken a GOOD LOOK at the current American leadership? Hillary Clinton, as Sec. of State, Panetta as Sec of Defense, Petraeus as CIA Director and of course Mr. Servile supreme, Obama, as puppet president! One overriding impression hits you immediately, what a bunch of LAME, INCOMPETENT, servile clowns. (story and 2 comments and 2 images)

Napoleon once referred to China as the ‘sleeping giant;’ indeed Napoleon’s observation has proven correct today as China emerges from thousands of years of oppression, poverty and social slavery to challenge America, an empire in rapid decline due to a political disease that once ravaged China – corrupt, minority rule!

puppet president image The Demented Diatribes of Servile Dunce Obama quill, Saturday, Mar 3 2012, 1:37am
Obama’s latest speech to the party faithful in New York City last night betrayed the astounding degree to which the ruling American elite are separated from reality, the American population and the free citizens of the WORLD.

Whatever else this tap dancing clown’s remarks betrayed, no doubt whatsoever exists regarding the ever-widening chasm between the clearly insular plutocratic ruling elites and the PEOPLE of America and the WORLD. (story and 1 image)
