Disgraced former leader, Kevin 'non-event' Rudd image Syria -- Quote of the Day bea, Thursday, Feb 16 2012, 9:08pm
Kevin 'yes Rupert' Rudd, former PM of Oz, narcissist and servile no-account politician, made a dutiful (for CFR Murdoch and Washington) media statement today regarding the CIA fomented Syrian rebellion: "... we cannot stand idly by and watch innocent civilians being slaughtered," as we did when criminal NATO flew 26,000 bombing raids over Libya, murdering 30,000 innocent civilians in the process; the ICC didn't see a thing but Banking and Oil elites were extremely happy with the result -- criminal mission accomplished!

In principle an international platform from which activists could collaborate and discuss various issues and plan actions is a good idea but the current model reeks of the 'man' attempting to locate and net the growing hacktivist army of INVISIBLE/ANONYMOUS hackers -- it is this group that really has the man on the ropes so every effort will be made to locate and capture rogue crewz, solos and groups -- be aware and beware!

AROUND a decade ago I had a boilerplate gag in my speeches, which went something like this: "I'm in favour of us having a special relationship with the United States, I just don't want us to have the kind that Miss Lewinsky had with President Clinton. One sided, undignified, immoral and with the junior partner always on their knees."

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.

Assange and Robinson image Delusionists Expect Justice in a Thoroughly Corrupt World nano, Tuesday, Feb 14 2012, 11:03am
What legal tidbits have made news recently? The appalling miscarriage of justice regarding the sentence handed down to a convicted civilian killing US marine, three months and no jail time! The offender was directly involved in the infamous Haditha massacre; women, children and other unarmed civilians were herded together and deliberately shot in the back of the head by murdering US marines. This travesty is but one of many involving the US military that routinely terrorise, rape and murder innocent civilians and others in occupied countries. (story and 1 comment and 1 image)

text Occupy, the protest movement you have in Wonderland red queen, Tuesday, Feb 14 2012, 5:53am
Let's begin at the beginning, Occupy as a 'movement' goes nowhere; from day one to today it has effected NO CHANGE whatsoever. Videos of PASSIVE idiots allowing themselves to be sprayed with mace by sadistic police is hardly a victorious 'look' is it, vacuum heads? What sort of (defeatist) MESSAGE do mindless Occupy morons think they're sending to the public? To date Occupy has achieved NOTHING, it was and remains a dead-in-the-water STATIC 'movement,' please excuse the American contradictions but I am describing an American protest movement! We should ask why Occupy has achieved nothing POSITIVE to date? The obvious answer would be because it has no agenda, direction or ARTICULATED OBJECTIVES.

text Tables Turn on Israel staff report via troy, Monday, Feb 13 2012, 6:36am
It seems that people have finally woken to the fact that they are able to return like for like, or assassination for assassination! Israel's Mossad was labouring under the very arrogant misapprehension that it could murder whomsoever it liked with impunity or minimal repercussions -- NOT SO -- the World seems to have tired of certain nations summarily executing anyone they please, so to make a point, offended nations and groups are responding in kind. Puppet politicians may be next, which would make corrupt politician the most dangerous job in existence!

image US Invading Syria by Proxy -- it worked in Libya! Tony Cartalucci via stele, Sunday, Feb 12 2012, 8:34pm
Before proceeding to Tony Cartalucci's accurate description of recent events, shouldn't populations everywhere that possess a sense of morality and functioning consciences/minds take note and begin making efforts to save themselves and their respective nations/societies by at least VOTING INDEPENDENTS into high office? Major political parties throughout the world have been purchased by CRIMINAL elites, plain to see -- it is THEY who are responsible for the ALL the wars, murder and destruction since the Balkans! Surely the first option AVAILABLE TO EVERYONE is to VOTE REAL representative independents into Office. Sincere social leaders that promise to separate minority criminal cabals from their money by nationalising the banks and RESTORING LAW, ORDER and placing ALL war and financial criminals on TRIAL for their CRIMES, including members of previous ruling administrations and governments. Representatives with remedial policies such as these should be supported by everyone. Everyone must exercise their DEMOCRATIC PREROGATIVES and VOTE the current crop of CRIMINALS out of office.

We’ve heard it all before Putin, remember Libya and the Slavic Balkans, you disgraceful, cowering dog? Yelping like a chihuahua over Syria achieves NOTHING other than a global demonstration of YOUR COWARDICE, lack of will or worse, your duplicitous criminal corruption! Why do you CONSTANTLY fail to support your ALLIES in the face of OVERT Western CRIMINAL aggression? Do you lack the COURAGE to DO SOMETHING ABOUT the SITUATION or are you merely performing, creating the impression that you oppose when you’re really PART OF THE PROBLEM, a complicit player behind the scenes?

Some years back a popular Australian 'socialist' leader, Gough Whitlam -- who was later deposed by the CIA -- took office against the odds using the slogan, "It's Time." The advertising agency that helped propel Whitlam to power would be pleased to learn that their slogan still packs a political punch and puts fear in the hearts of unrepresentative, minority governments.

The mainstream media must be desperate for stories reporting that recently deceased, Steve Jobs of Apple Computer, smoked pot and dropped acid in his youth -- big fuckin' deal! I don't know of any exceptionally creative people that haven't! Jobs was a product of his generation, a generation known to have hash on toast and LSD on their cornflakes for breakfast, you pedestrian, no-accounts. (story and 1 image)

uschinaflags.jpg image The Russia-China Veto: Will it Contribute to Reversing the Tide of Global Warfare? Matthias Chang via stan, Thursday, Feb 9 2012, 9:54am
Mao Zedong famously declared that the “US is a paper tiger” and that in winning wars, it is the people that are paramount not weapons. Atomic weapons will not enable a country to win the war. If there was one statement that galvanised the Chinese people to stand up and be counted in the face of open threats of nuclear war and oppression, this was it. Mao Zedong was correct on all counts from a strategic standpoint. And one need not be a communist to appreciate this strategic victory in propaganda warfare, when at the material time China was not even a nuclear power. The army of the People’s Republic of China was essentially a peasant army but one highly motivated and disciplined. China at the material time took a consistent stand in opposing hegemony, standing up to the armed aggressions of the Anglo-American war party in South America, Middle East and Asia.

We 'maintain' their systems image Oz Banks Shedding Loyal Staff Again lynx, Thursday, Feb 9 2012, 7:36am
Australian banks are “restructuring” -- a euphemism for sacking workers no longer required by highly profitable banks – that’s right, the sackings are NOT the result of economic pressures. Banks are slowly displacing once valued and indispensible workers with computer programs. Very little effort was directed at retraining staff, as the banks require a smaller compliment of workers, they wanted these workers off the books PERMANENTLY! (story and 3 comments and 2 images)
