Chris Hedges image Political Flights of Fancy and Democratic Farces andy, Wednesday, Jun 20 2012, 1:33pm
A crude but effective strategy for limiting discourse and narrowing political choice is to present pre-selected, owned candidates. Take for example the current media saturation on Romney and Obama, two servants of the same ruling elite, and the point is well illustrated! (story and 1 image)

pope_blair.jpg image Innuendo and accusation in Alastair Campbell's diaries Andrew Grice via watson, Sunday, Jun 17 2012, 2:29am
Alastair Campbell's 'personal' and highly subjective diaries make the claim that 'CFR' Rupert Murdoch pushed/'forced,' servant to the Banker and Corporate elite, Tony Blair, into the Iraq war! Now think before swallowing; the source is the diary of a UK politician and 'rides' with a given -- few informed analysts and commentators would doubt Murdoch's elitist credentials and his desire to push the PNAC plan; HOWEVER, Tony Blair, the most gushing faithful servant to the elites required no 'force' or urging to unswervingly serve his Banker and corporatist masters, which is bloody obvious. Tony 'JP Morgan' BLAIR, for pete's sake! (story and 3 images)

Cane toad image Oregon man contracts Bubonic Plague pasteur, Wednesday, Jun 13 2012, 12:22pm
News of bubonic plague in Oregon coincides with a local story of noxious cane toad control in Australia. An interesting parallel can be drawn from the two stories by those seeking an easy, inexpensive means by which to spread deadly pathogens -- bio-warfare in other words.

A story that is carried by all the major 'news' networks captures -- to the exclusion of other major news -- the focus of the public. Society remains locked into the existing structure. The veracity of the 'news' story becomes irrelevant if it remains in the news. It captures, whether the 'alternative' media denounces the story or whether the mainstream promotes it. Both reactions reduce awareness by narrowing attention; credibility becomes irrelevant if all media sources entertain a given story. (story and 1 image)

Nanjing/Iraq image Corporatists set Agenda and Policy regardless of who 'wins!' Jeff, Tuesday, May 15 2012, 10:28am
Has America altered course since Bill Clinton occupied the White House and illegally bombed the Balkans, or has fundamental US policy changed? The answer to both questions is, NO! So why all the media ballyhoo over FAKE elections or the 'race' by two owned puppets for the White House? Both major parties are clearly owned and managed by the same Wall St Corporate/Banker interests? Yet the media -- including the so-called alternative media -- is covering events as though a real democratic process was playing out or that real political options existed.

There they were again, about a dozen young cops with their sniffer dogs sweeping the pub next to my friend's café. My friend always dreads when police sweeps coincide with one of my visits, he knows I have an acute sense of justice and fair play and am likely to undiplomatically voice my opinion.

text On Love Jiddu Krihsnamurti via sadh, Friday, Apr 6 2012, 2:07pm
The demand to be safe in relationship inevitably breeds sorrow and fear. This seeking for security is inviting insecurity. Have you ever found security in any of your relationships? Have you? Most of us want the security of loving and being loved, but is there love when each one of us is seeking his own security, his own particular path? We are not loved because we don't know how to love.

Another day dawns; the USA remains the leading civilian killing terrorist nation in the world; it recently conducted a soft invasion of Australia via its puppets in Canberra; America maintains its divisionist strategies in the Balkans, the far East and all its other occupied, conquered and RUINED territories; the ICC has been exposed yet again as a thoroughly corrupt politicised and extremely partial court, it's BLIND to Israeli and American war crimes!

PDF Document Nothing is 'Too Big To Fail' - Reserve Banker calls for Reform stan, Sunday, Apr 1 2012, 12:38am
The recently released annual report (below) of the Dallas Reserve Bank calls for the dismantling of the ‘Too Big To Fail’ Banks and other TBTF (financial) institutions! If I hadn’t read the report myself I wouldn’t have believed it. However, I was not born yesterday and neither was the now very cynical population which ranks banks together with criminal organisations and likens Banksters to organised crime bosses.

text Don’t Kid Yourselves! barra, Thursday, Mar 29 2012, 8:12am
Society has always reflected the mass consciousness -- in all its beauty or ugliness, whatever the case may be. ‘Subscribers,’ members of society reinforce its values either positively (support) or negatively (acquiescence or ineffective opposition). Surely it would be the height of absurdity to oppose what you essentially are by negative ‘reaction’ or violent opposition! But that is PRECISELY what the US executive and other puppet authorities do for their ruling Banker and Corporatist masters. In fact, ignorant ruling powers are fighting forces they have created themselves with outrageously unfair, inequitable and imbalanced ‘solutions.’ A house divided cannot stand – the house today is of course humanity living on this tiny planet.

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?

Don’t kid yourselves, Americans are brutal and stupid the world knows, but they are NOT stupid to the point of falling for a repeat performance of the Iraq war ruse on Iran; do you also imagine that Americans fell for the ‘humanitarian intervention’ a la Kosovo style in Libya? Right again, almost a perfect repeat performance of the LIES that led to the illegal excision of Kosovo from sovereign Yugoslavia and the largest American military base of occupation (Bondsteel) in continental Europe. The LAW is meaningless where civilian killing America is concerned AND EVERY AMERICAN KNOWS IT! (story and 3 comments and 1 image)

As minority criminal forces frenetically pursue war with Iran via their appropriated state and corporate apparatuses; the Pentagon, Judicial System, UN, partial Hague Courts and corporate mass media, I am reminded of the lunatics that nefarious elites place in power to do their biding -- Obama, Cameron, Gillard, Sarkozy, Merkel to name a few.
