Djokovic, Victorious Serb image Arsenic and the Tea Lady zoran, Monday, Jan 30 2012, 9:55pm
Imagine a highly plausible scenario; refreshments, tea, coffee, juice served during Corporate board meetings around the globe, almost a daily occurrence. Now cast your mind back to a (superseded) once familiar and loved employee, the tea lady, who diligently brewed up tea and coffee (with ‘bikkies’) for floor staff every afternoon. Unfortunately foul coffee machines and soft drink dispensers have replaced the much loved tea lady these days -- corporations ain’t what they used to be! (story and 1 comment and 2 images)

Prior to publishing this material concerns were raised regarding short-circuiting the public's automatic programming and fizzling their pea brains, but after careful deliberation we decided to publish, as those able to withstand the shock of the REAL may be able to LIBERATE/free themselves and those that short circuit and become gibbering idiots can participate in the American Presidential Elections where a puppet is selected from either major party by criminal Banking and Corporate interests that control government and the country!

Protest in Karachi against US Drones image Karachi: Over 100,000 Protest Illegal US Drone Strikes jalal, Saturday, Jan 28 2012, 9:09pm
While the US announces it will cut funds to its regular army/military, it not so subtly channelled those funds to support new, high-tech weapons and robotic warfare strategies. The problem is, as the world is well aware, robot Drones are war crime weapons, as they indiscriminately kill countless civilians -- and killing civilians (“bugsplat”) in war constitutes a war crime, for everyone except the US and NATO it would seem!

Damned Australians! image 'Trawled' Data Revealed the Identities of Gillard Protest Informants lynx, Friday, Jan 27 2012, 8:37pm
Unencrypted voice data illegally trawled from mobile networks by 'big brother' has revealed the identities of two individuals allegedly responsible for informing aboriginal protesters of the location of opposition leader Tony Abbott and treasonous PM, Juliar 'Goldman Tax' Gillard -- both of whom are legal parliamentary representatives of the Queen! This issue actually goes straight to LONDON, the Palace and international criminal courts for the heinous crimes of GENOCIDE and cultural annihilation. But first a note on security and surveillance!

PDF Document ACTA: The Corporate Usurpation of the Internet Nile Bowie via fleet, Friday, Jan 27 2012, 4:45am
In the wake of a public outcry against internet regulation bills such as SOPA and PIPA, representatives of the EU have signed a new and far more threatening legislation yesterday in Tokyo. Spearheaded by the governments of the United States and Japan and constructed largely in the absence of public awareness, the measures of the Anti-Counterfeiting Trade Agreement (ACTA) dramatically alter current international legal framework, while introducing the first substantial processes of global internet governance. With complete contempt towards the democratic process, the negotiations of the treaty were exclusively held between industry representatives and government officials, while excluding elected representatives and members of the press from their hearings.

twitcensored.jpg image Censorship on Twitter staff report via sy, Thursday, Jan 26 2012, 7:19pm
Google and CIA business partner have been selectively suppressing information for years that is why Google is facing anti-trust commissions/courts around the globe. Facebook will soon begin some form of selective censorship as pressure mounts to WITHHOLD critical information from society. Elites figure they've got you hooked on social networks so people will accept Orwellian information control, hence the open disclosure of Twitter entering the censorship business.

Wall St owned clown image Ya Can't Fool Putin! Tass via penny, Thursday, Jan 26 2012, 6:50am
Former KGB and current diminutive Russian leader, Vladimir Putin, seems to have finally got the picture after a DECADE of illegal American military expansionism and CONSTANT war. Putin accused the USA of attempting to "dominate the world" (ya kiddin' me, Vladimir!) One wonders where Putin was during the Russian RETREAT from the Balkans, which set the STAGE for unopposed American expansionism. The US learned then that Russia HAD NO BALLS or principles! You will always be remembered as a diminutive, yelping, cowardly DOG, Putin! (story and 1 image)

Terrified Juliar Gillard clings to her bodyguard image Indigenous Aussies Launch Spontaneous Attack on Oz PM Gillard warra, Wednesday, Jan 25 2012, 11:15pm
Incensed by comments opposition leader Abbott made, inferring that Aborigines were better off today, a group of protesters from the Aboriginal tent embassy in Canberra surrounded a Restaurant the PM and opposition leader were lunching in.

There is no doubt that security was caught flat-footed by the surprise protest, the fear on Gillard's face was palpable. Perhaps now she realises a little of the terror her US support/policies inflict on others.

As representatives of the mass murdering British Crown, Aboriginal protesters were justified in their non-violent attack on Gillard and Abbott. Justice MUST be served and compensation/reparations made for genocide and the destruction of numerous tribal cultures. Notwithstanding pursuing criminal proceedings in local and international courts against the Crown and Australian government for their GENOCIDAL policies and heinous treatment of indigenous Australians since the colonial invasion.

text Obama Delivers State of Delusion Address rumple, Wednesday, Jan 25 2012, 9:37pm
PUPPET president Obama dutifully delivered his rehearsed and scripted State of the Union address to a socially aware America/WORLD recently; and as the majority noted, the one outstanding feature of this address was its COMPLETE disconnect from SOCIAL REALITY. I mean, who is Obama and his handlers trying to kid? So completely divorced from REALITY was the entire mad hatters address that it beggared belief -- one can only wonder who is prescribing the (wrong) medication for the executive these days! The insular dunces that wrote the diatribe really need to get out more. Even the long-suffering, under-educated, spineless American population viewed the entire charade with the cynicism it deserved.

eyesobama.jpg image US 'Justice': A Marine who Murdered Women and Children gets 3 Months staff report via stele, Monday, Jan 23 2012, 8:50pm
As if to 'stick it' to the entire CIVILISED World, the US military -- now legally empowered by Obama to DETAIN civilians/anyone anywhere on suspicion, INDEFINITELY -- handed down a THREE month sentence to one of their own for MURDERING unarmed women and children in Haditha, Iraq -- have we had enough of this arrogant, CRIMINALLY CORRUPT NATION, YET? It is painfully apparent that War Crimes seem to apply to everyone EXCEPT the US military. So, how's this for a variation on a recent US theme: 'we came, we saw, we assassinated!' Brazen CORRUPTION and lawlessness gives license to EVERYONE to respond IN KIND! (story and 6 comments and 1 image)

text MegaUpload Case -- US Seeks Dominion Over Cyberspace Brett Winterford via Kismo, Sunday, Jan 22 2012, 8:19pm
Have we had enough of America's 'permanent war,' 'indefinite detention,' neo-fascist policies or should we ALLOW the US to harness and control Cyberspace -- that is the principal issue behind the Assange and MegaUpload cases?

Not content with illegally invading weaker nations, plundering and killing thousands of innocent civilians -- all in the name of PROFIT -- the clearly criminal US now seeks dominion over Cyberspace, the last truly FREE social space left to humanity.
