eh! image More Civilian deaths; “regrettable,” says Clinton nano, Wednesday, May 6 2009, 9:00pm
There is something extremely offensive about using the word “regrettable” after killing over one million innocent civilians in illegal, invasive, acquisitive wars. That word accepts no responsibility nor does it offer any consolation to innocent victims! (story and 1 image)

Liar, Lackey and reprehensible Fraud image Rogue nations and poisonous ideologies: we know what we must do! Captain, Wednesday, Apr 29 2009, 11:10pm
Comrades, brothers and sisters and all thinking people of the world – WE are ONE!

However, it is clear we constitute a minority, notwithstanding an extremely capable minority of highly dedicated, passionate, motivated and skilled people of conscience and moral fibre. We continue to work together in communities, small groups and individually against overwhelming odds and forces that would lay waste to the entire world for the sake of singular control, avaricious gain and a host of other perversities.

WE are CALLED! (story and 4 comments and 1 image)

text Obama welcomes Albania, Croatia to NATO Robert Burns via rialator, Saturday, Apr 4 2009, 5:57am
Where will it end, Han? Do you see the dick in your face, NOW? You have been lied to, conned and screwed and still you do not understand! It may or may not be too late now, however, what is certain is one more NATO move and it's over, Yuri!

I hope you choke on Kosovo, 'comrades!' You failed to DECISIVELY stand your LEGAL ground and support your ally when you had the chance. Now it verges on impossible; Albania, Croatia, soon Macedonia, Montenegro then Georgia, do you doubt it?

'Just desserts' for abandoning a close ally and displaying your cowardice to the world. It would have been much simpler and cleaner then! Enjoy the following report -- I can hear the laughter from Strasbourg in Sydney!

Here's a purely hypothetical scenario. Let's say you were a dedicated imperial militarist who believed that your country's security, prestige and financial interests could best be served by war and the ever-present threat of war. Let's say you had some really hot and juicy operations going on, endless deadly conflicts that were pouring hundreds of billions of dollars into your war machine and entrenching national policy even more deeply in the militarist philosophy – the machtpolitik – that you believe in.

text ‘Let them eat cake’ world leaders have ‘tea’ as G20 protesters .. barra, Thursday, Apr 2 2009, 12:18am
The same mainstream media that refuse to pursue western war criminals, thieving bankers and robber barons described concerned citizens protesting G20 as ‘violent anarchist rabble,’ as an effigy of a banker was hung and burned by protesters in ‘The City’ financial district of London today.

ozzaroo.jpg image I can add too! angry citizen, Sunday, Mar 22 2009, 1:45am
This comment has been upgraded because it makes sense 'across the board' -- something that Executive elites have been unable to do for years! Anyone that has any assets whatsoever in the 'stock market' -- for the want of a more accurate term -- could be best described today as a fool's FOOL!

Angry citizen's comment puts the entire financial meltdown in contextual perspective -- see how THEY run! Use it like a hot knife when dealing with the 'butter' explanations of shysters and banksters. It certainly frames the article from Rolling Stone's, Matt Taibbi, in the comment section very nicely indeed -- a great read, Matt! Never forget the CURRENT REALITY and how we got here and WHO was responsible. Never again fall for the meaningless gibberish of 'experts' that reality BRANDS as thieves and liars -- simple! I'll leave you to the perfect deductions of an honest angry citizen! Ed.

PDF Document A Sovereignty Primer Zed, Sunday, Feb 1 2009, 10:36am
Recent history has CLEARLY revealed the criminal and corrupt nature of Western governments; the issue is no longer whether they are corrupt it’s what to do in the face of flagrant incompetence, corruption and criminality displayed by our governments.

Regardless of where it may lead – hopefully social reform -- the very first legal and responsible act is to declare ourselves SOVEREIGN entities and reserve our right NOT to be imposed upon by criminals, brutes and thugs masquerading as stewards and guardians of a our values, laws and ethical codes; all of which have been attacked and subverted by modern Western governments!

[Why swallow the preposterous propaganda that emanates from America and its allies? Do not count yourselves among banjo-playing, mindless American morons that actually believe Obama represents real change. DO NOT BE A VICTIM of events, SHAPE events and wage digital warfare on the net against the nefarious forces that seek only to enslave and deceive the FREE WORLD!

OUR VICTORY IS ASSURED; do not remain passive. Be an ACTIVE PARTICIPANT in THE PUSH FOR JUSTICE and REAL DEMOCRACY. Write and video events for the world! We invite YOU to contribute as do all other INDEPENDENT SITES. Be a part of the SOLUTION not part of the moronic, PASSIVE, problem! Ed.]

The mainstream has always been SLOW to adapt to the latest technologies; an amusing and highly exploitable fact/situation. Antiquated media modes of communication and moguls too old to change have no answer to the millions of independent digital voices that speak in one voice whenever the need arises.

Tom Friedman image A Perfect Definition of 'Terrorism' Glenn Greenwald via rialator, Wednesday, Jan 14 2009, 8:07pm
This war on the people of Gaza isn't really about rockets. Nor is it about "restoring Israel's deterrence," as the Israeli press might have you believe. Far more revealing are the words of Moshe Yaalon, then the Israeli Defense Forces chief of staff, in 2002: "The Palestinians must be made to understand in the deepest recesses of their consciousness that they are a defeated people."

[Numerous posts to this site (input google in search box) warned very early of google's intention to monopolise ALL available data. The mass media has as usual been extremely sluggish in reporting real threats to our democracies and freedoms. However, perhaps from fear of its own future relevance, if google succeeds with its plans, the mass media now reports on the Corporation that is without doubt the greatest threat to free thought and liberty in the world today.

'Rupert' Goebbels image Censorship in the Western Media: What they Don't Want You to Know Eric Sommer via quill, Wednesday, Nov 5 2008, 8:47am
The Western media has recently outdone itself in censoring important stories - stories which contradict the policies and interests the media seeks to uphold.. Western publics have been systematically misled in recent weeks on vital issues related to war-and-peace, human rights, the financial crisis, and more. Only a few examples can be set out here. But it should be enough to indicate the extent to which world reality is being filtered by the media. (story and 1 comment and 2 images)

This is not a story on a fake terrorism war that targets nothing of strategic value – such as Bin Laden’s war of convenience. The reader will note Bush’s ‘Islamic terrorists’ only target symbolic not REAL (high value) targets -- after all, the forces behind the ‘long war’ do not wish their profits to be disrupted or to lose anything of REAL value!

“The enemy of my enemy is my friend;” we support anyone and everyone who opposes the mass murdering, plundering, LAWLESS, USA. The rogue must be stopped by all available means. Central Asian and Middle Eastern forces are re-asserting their inalienable rights to their traditional lands and HOMES – “death to all invaders!” China, Russia, India and other East Asian nations are mounting economic and energy attacks as I write. The idiocy of the Bush regime has succeeded where outsiders never could – THEY HAVE IN RECORD TIME RUINED THE ECONOMY/NATION FROM WITHIN – we hope the people continue in their apathy and we wish McCain the best of luck in the race to annihilation.
