Congressman Ron Paul image Google (and other media) Suppress Ron Paul sysadmin, Friday, Jan 20 2012, 10:29pm
The story linked below covers Ron Paul introducing legislation on the floor of the House to REPEAL the plainly Nazi 'indefinite detention without trial or charge' provision in the NDAA, which shameless PUPPET president Obama signed into law on New Year's eve -- dig that for timing -- notwithstanding that Obama said he would veto the provision! But the WORLD has learned over the past four years that Obama reneges on all his promises and pledges, moreso than any other politician ON EARTH (suckers) -- so much for president 'INTEGRITY!'

Twenty four hours after Internet advocates held a GLOBAL online protest objecting to proposed anti-piracy legislation, which they claim is censorship at its worst and overreach at best, one of the world's largest file-sharing sites,, was shuttered by the FBI and arrest warrants served in New Zealand! [Draconian information control necessarily follows totalitarian Indefinite Detention law in the face of widespread, SUSTAINED, social paralysis/INACTION. As occurred in Nazi Germany, the best thing the civilised and educated German MASSES could do to stop Fascism's swift rise, was sit with their thumbs up their arses!] (story and 2 comments and 1 image)

In no way do I cast any negative criticism on Australia’s long suffering indigenous people as a whole though a recent political distraction by Washington lackey, Oz PM Juliar ‘carbon tax’ Gillard, forces me to address some dubious characters in this article. The matter relates to a government media grab/distraction; Gillard wishes to recognise the original occupants of Australia in the Constitution; HOWEVER, she consciously chooses not to view the matter in its historical, genocidal context – an invasion and the establishment of a penal colony that served the interests of a COMMERCIAL and MERCANTILE British Empire seeking more PROFIT by force of arms. The invasion of Australia and colonial development by the British Crown and the subsequent slaughter (for sport in some instances) of the local indigenous population is historical fact, though much historical fact is glossed over to make it more acceptable or ‘naturally' consequential.

A popular myth promulgated by the ‘man’ is that non-violent resistance exemplified by Gandhi and Martin Luther King is an effective method of opposition against draconian, VIOLENT, criminal forces -- forget it, it’s a LIE, a strategy designed to contain and paralyse entire populations.

text Voters Choice: Ron Paul or Israel Lobby William A. Cook via reed, Monday, Jan 16 2012, 8:06pm
A curious glance at the current crop of presidential candidates makes it clear that Ron Paul stands alone when it comes to the issue of US engagement in foreign wars. He stands with George Washington against foreign entanglements while the rest of the candidates stand with Teddy Roosevelt and the attempted creation of America 's first empire one hundred and twelve years ago. Mark Twain responded to that effort by creating the Anti-imperialist society while he caustically satirized the effort in his depiction of the massacre of the Moros in the Philippines . Now we have more massacres, using drones instead of canons, on equally hapless civilians who are caught unawares or hiding from the wrath of America 's righteousness as we drive to bring virtue to a primitive world.

text 'Defense' Lunacy USA Kevin Carson via gan, Sunday, Jan 15 2012, 8:30pm
US military culture has recently made the headlines again with the urination corpse 'scandal' -- never mind the mass civilian murders, targeted assassinations and ILLEGAL military occupations! The Pentagon has revealed quite plainly how they transform OUR civilized youth into sadistic, homicidal sociopaths fighting CORPORATE wars -- that is the real tragedy. Our soldiers unconsciously know they are fighting dishonorable, CRIMINAL wars for PROFIT. Hence, SUICIDE continues to be the largest killer of US troops, enough said? The real enemy behind all the wars is Wall St. Bankers and Corporate owned Washington politicians!

text 'Appropriate Behaviour' in an Insane World Jacqueline Marcus via judd, Sunday, Jan 15 2012, 7:45am
Consider the HORRENDOUS innocent civilian death toll in America's recent wars of resource theft and the continued daily killing of innocent civilians by CIA and Pentagon UAV Drones, which is somehow acceptable or at least doesn't seem to offend the American mass media and then consider the recent media hysteria over US marines pissing on the murdered corpses of Afghani freedom fighters (or innocent civilians?) and you will get a sense of the depths of real depravity, irrationality and sheer lunacy to which America has sunk. America today is not a nation, it is a dangerous DISEASE that must be fought on every front!

energydrinks.jpg image Doctors warn: so-called Energy drinks are POISONING our teens Siobhan Duck via stan, Sunday, Jan 15 2012, 6:51am
The Corporate and Big Pharma controlled AMA is calling, not for a ban on these clearly toxic, designed for no good purpose, 'energy drinks', but an age restriction on their sale. Clearly doctors are worried about losing their bonus points for that free holiday on the Gold Coast if they step on Big Pharma and Corporate toes, you pathetic, corrupt, gutless, professional no-accounts! But perhaps Aussie doctors may wish to inform the public of the diabetic 'benefits' to any age group a hyper-sweetened, caffeine saturated drink could offer! (story and 1 image)

text Scientific basis for some Yoga practices in Sinusitis Dr. Aanada Balayogi Bhavanani via sadh, Saturday, Jan 14 2012, 9:47pm
Recent American 'news' reports are warning that nasal irrigation -- known as Jala Neti in its country of origin -- could be fatal due to the presence of a brain eating amoeba in American drinking water! We have often wondered what they put in American drinking water to create such a fear ridden, socially paralysed (indefinite detention without trial or charge) CLEARLY enslaved, imbecilic population! The existence of this amoeba, among other things, in American drinking water may not surprise many so I would add a cautionary provision to the practice of jala neti; if in any doubt whatsoever regarding the safety of water supplies simply BOIL all water thoroughly and clean all utensils ('neti pots') before utilisation for nasal irrigation. There ya go, you dumb, frightened, Americans. [Please note this is an editorial comment and in no way reflects the opinion or sentiments of the author, though the health/safety warning applies!] (story and 1 comment)

It is to be expected that a SERVANT serves his master. Only fools and the uninformed would find the following report shocking. The solution to the OBVIOUS problem is simple; criminal COLLUSION is a CRIME and anyone that serves criminal interests is a CRIMINAL, regardless of their position in society. If the President of the United States is a criminal then lock him and his cohorts in crime up! The LAW must apply to ALL or it becomes a tool in the hands of the criminally corrupt and civilisation goes to the dogs! (story and 1 image)

As a civilised, law abiding, educated, informed and aware human being I deplore violence, as do the MAJORITY of people regardless of race, creed or nationality – it is an inherent trait that all sane social species possess. However, we live in a violent world and there are times when violence must be applied in order to survive or correct a horrific and destructive criminal/perverse situation. (story and 1 image)

"All change is violent to that which is changed." There is no escaping the fact that all social/political revolutions -- including Gandhi's -- result in HUGE casualties and deaths. OWS dreamboats take note of your guru Gene Sharp stating what every analyst already knew, OWS is I-N-E-F-F-E-C-T-I-V-E! It was designed to achieve nothing but have the appearance of a protest movement and it was done well -- you mindless American morons!
