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!

Cameron and Obama -- note the juxtaposed subordination of Cameron image Puppet Clowns, Cameron and Obama -- "making progress!" [LOL!] baz, Thursday, Mar 15 2012, 2:14am
How many years has the USA and its puppet allies been "making progress" in Afghanistan and avoiding international war crimes courts? Take a wild guess then look at the language of the following report especially the oft repeated but UNDEFINED "mission" word. History dictates that America's 'mission' is criminal invasion, occupation, assassination, regime change, plunder and the mass murder of civilians; any dreamboat that thinks otherwise, after a DECADE of lost wars and recorded heinous crimes, is SORELY DELUDED!

Thanks to relentless promotion by Fox News, CNN, MSNBC, Bloomberg News, ABC, CBS, Oprah, celebrities and politicians of both corporate parties, along with right wing church groups and foundations, the Kony 2012 video has “gone viral.” Viewed on YouTube more than a hundred million times by now, it paints a vivid and simple picture, clear enough, its narrator says, for a five year old to understand [the propaganda con and 'perception management' strategy].

text Goldman Sachs Insider: Culture of Self-interest, Misrepresentation and Corruption Greg Smith via reed, Wednesday, Mar 14 2012, 9:22am
TODAY is my last day at Goldman Sachs. After almost 12 years at the firm — first as a summer intern while at Stanford, then in New York for 10 years, and now in London — I believe I have worked here long enough to understand the trajectory of its culture, its people and its identity. And I can honestly say that the environment now is as toxic and destructive as I have ever seen it.

heatrayads.jpg image US Military Ready to Deploy New Weapons System on Public mitch, Tuesday, Mar 13 2012, 10:43pm
The civilian killing, criminal US military -- My Lai massacre, Laos carpet bombing, Haditha, Kandahar massacres, ETC, -- now invested with the power by PUPPET president Obama to detain anyone it chooses indefinitely on suspicion, has gone public with a new 'intimidating' microwave heat-beam weapons system, which is easily circumvented by reflectors and other mobile, decentralized tactics. However, the following press release is intended to instill fear into an already cowering, genitally groped, whipped-dog, paralyzed American public. You people are PATHETIC! (story and 1 image)

Bradley Manning, prisoner of conscience imagePDF Document UN Torture Investigator Concludes Bradley Manning NOT Tortured sam, Tuesday, Mar 13 2012, 9:49am
Talk about GUTLESS! Read the linked pdf report from UN torture investigator regarding the treatment of Bradley Manning while incarcerated by the CRIMINAL civilian killing, US military and be sickened by his COWARDICE.

Manning was clearly subjected to persistent and inhuman psychological torture in a failed bid to break his spirit and coerce him into implicating glamour boy, Julian Assange of WikiLeaks. The good news is Bradley didn't break but was weakened over 18 months to the extent that he is being misrepresented as mentally unstable and not responsible for his actions when his chat logs -- published by "Wired" -- reveal very clearly that Manning's CONSCIENCE and moral convictions forced him to expose the criminal activity of the US military! So he wasn't 'technically' T-O-R-T-U-R-E-D, Mr Mendez UN reprehensible coward? (story and 1 image and 1 attached file)

Two rashers of bacon a day raises the odds of dying from heart disease and cancer by 20 per cent, a study has claimed. While red meat has been blamed for health problems before, the large-scale American study is one of the first to link it to a higher risk of dying. The data, from more than 120,000 men and women who were tracked for almost 30 years, was analysed by the Harvard School of Public Health in Boston. (story and 1 image)

Nine INNOCENT children savagely murdered image Afghanistan's My Lai/Haditha: An Atrocity to End the War Robert Dreyfuss via gan, Monday, Mar 12 2012, 9:01pm
Following routine bombings of wedding parties, hundreds killed in unchecked “night raids” by US Special Forces, the murders by the scandalous “kill team” in 2010, and, this year, the digitally recorded urination onto dead Afghans by Americans in uniform—not to mention the Koran burnings last month—it’s clear that there’s no hope of success for the “mission;” whatever that is?

Washington doormat Juliar 'Carbon Sachs' Gillard -- soon to be former PM of Oz -- was quick to reassure her American masters that SHE is committed to HER mission in Afghanistan; perhaps she should ELABORATE or try to justify the presence of brave Aussie troops fighting filthy, illegal, civilian killing, AMERICAN wars for PROFIT in Afghanistan!

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)

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.

criminalwars.jpg image US Army Suicides Increased by 80% after illegal Iraq Invasion Captain, Thursday, Mar 8 2012, 9:45am
A study published in the British Journal of Injury Prevention has revealed that US Army suicides increased by a staggering eighty percent after the US led invasion of Iraq! This is the highest increase over the shortest period ever recorded, and it says much about the human cost of fighting illegal, unjust DISHONOURABLE wars for CORPORATE PROFIT. It is a particularly sobering statistic in view of the rancid propaganda that Zionist Hollywood dishes out to the young, the latest of which is 'Act of Valour,' a transparent glamourisation of the US Navy Seals.

text Stratfor emails reveal Regime Change and NATO/US takeover Agenda for Syria Finian Cunningham via keir, Thursday, Mar 8 2012, 6:17am
The Western governments' and mainstream media’s narrative of a one-sided humanitarian crisis in Syria is rapidly unwinding to reveal a self-serving deception to justify a re-run of Libya-style NATO conquest. In reality, it is the Western powers and their Israeli and Arab henchmen who are fuelling a humanitarian crisis and creating the conditions for all-out war. All of which, it should be said, constitutes criminality comparable to Nazi Germany’s wars of aggression.

text It's About Social Control NOT Security trish, Wednesday, Mar 7 2012, 8:11pm
American politicians constantly warn of the al-Qaeda bogey man and the threat posed to the USA by these mysterious media enemies. US citizens have been stripped of all their 'inalienable' rights by recent indefinite detention and extra-judical assassintion 'laws.' Totalitarian social control measures are now characteristic in the USA but few seem to notice and even less are willing to fight for their rights.
