Arbib, Traitor and Spy image WikiLeaks: Washington behind Rudd's Demise as PM Philip Dorling via stan, Wednesday, Dec 8 2010, 7:42pm
THE federal Labor minister and right-wing powerbroker Mark Arbib is one of the US embassy's valued confidential contacts, providing inside information and commentary on the workings of the government and the ALP.

Secret embassy cables obtained by WikiLeaks and made available exclusively to this website reveal that Senator Arbib has been in regular contact with US embassy officers. His candid comments are incorporated in reports to Washington with requests that his identity as a ''protected'' source be guarded. (story and 1 image)

It is not often this site has a kind word for anything American, however, wonders never cease; even the Americans have the measure of our sick little narcissist, Kevin Rudd. WikiLeaks’ latest release revealed that the former US Ambassador to Oz had Kevin Rudd ‘pegged to a tee’ -- ‘assessed accurately,’ for non-Aussie readers! (story and 1 comment)

wiki_leaks.jpg image Julian Assange: What it means to be an Australian Citizen bluey, Friday, Dec 3 2010, 8:08pm
Responding to a question regarding going back home to Australia at some stage, Julian Assange of WikiLeaks answered as follows:

“I am an Australian citizen and I miss my country a great deal. However, during the last weeks the Australian prime minister, Julia Gillard, and the attorney general, Robert McClelland, have made it clear that not only is my return impossible but that they are actively working to assist the United States government in its attacks on myself and our people. This brings into question what does it mean to be an Australian citizen - does that mean anything at all? Or are we all to be treated like David Hicks at the first possible opportunity merely so that Australian politicians and diplomats can be invited to the best US embassy cocktail parties.” [Emphasis added.] (story and 3 comments and 2 images)

For those not fully conversant with American ‘foreign policy’ strategies they reduce to intimidation and/or bribery, either embargos, economic sanctions, or massive loans ‘aid’ (America prints money from thin air, remember) that enslave poorer nations; but the most popular tactics employed today are illegal military invasions, plunder and the mass murder of unfortunate civilians. You will note that the tactics America employs today are akin to those utilised by Nazi Germany, including ACCUSING the VICTIM! (story and 3 comments and 1 image and 1 video)

And the first person to agree would be Julian Assange -- who, incidentally, has made the short list for TIME magazine's most influential person of 2010.

Truth and full disclosure are about making it very difficulty for criminals in high places to function and deceive the population -- in other words WikiLeaks servers the interests of a healthy, DEMOCRATIC society. Those that oppose WikiLeaks should be watched very carefully indeed, as they are clearly CORRUPT and/or involved in CRIMINAL activity -- it really is that simple, Jethro!

"To describe Obama as chastened by defeat would be an exaggeration, since it might suggest that before the election he had been engaged in an aggressive campaign against his opponents. He was low-key, conciliatory and, above all, prostrate before corporate America, whose servant he is." (story and 1 comment and 1 image)

Obama is not the problem the forces that pull his and every other (with very few exceptions) politician’s strings on Capitol (spelled 'Capital,' you idiots!) Hill, control OUR governments/democracies! So who or what are the forces that once lurked in the shadows but today are known to the entire world? YES, that’s right, morons, Wall Street, Big Finance/Banks and Transnational CORPORATIONS. Everybody knows! (story and 2 comments)

'give us this day our Daily Show and forgive us our inanities' image Strawman Politics -- The Phantom Left Chris Hedges via fleet, Tuesday, Nov 2 2010, 9:16am
The American left is a phantom. It is conjured up by the right wing to tag Barack Obama as a socialist and used by the liberal class to justify its complacency and lethargy. It diverts attention from corporate power. It perpetuates the myth of a democratic system that is influenced by the votes of citizens, political platforms and the work of legislators. It keeps the world neatly divided into a left and a right. The phantom left functions as a convenient scapegoat. The right wing blames it for moral degeneration and fiscal chaos. The liberal class uses it to call for “moderation.” And while we waste our time talking nonsense, the engines of corporate power—masked, ruthless and unexamined—happily devour the state.

text Deceit and the Political Right Jon Faulkner via dasha, Sunday, Oct 3 2010, 7:26am
Without being entirely dismissive of the progressive response to the right's ascendancy it is painfully obvious that words, no matter how eloquent or apt, fall short when arguing the progressive ideology. Republican sophists use rhetorical argument, albeit in the absence of truth, to great success to refute the progressive left.

With the November elections quickly approaching, the majority of Americans will be thinking one thing: "Who cares?” This apathy isn't due to ignorance, as some accuse. Rather, working people's disinterest in the two party system implies intelligence: millions of people understand that both the Democrats and Republicans will not represent their interests in Congress.

Occasionally one derives a real belly laugh from Western ‘newswires;’ the following report covering Serbian president Boris ‘the dog’ Tadic’s latest traitorous attempts to appease the West/EU by revising the legal claim Serbia has on Kosovo, is one such preposterous news absurdity – not for the fact that the servile dog, Tadic, is not guilty of treason or that he loves to suck western leaders’ cocks, but for the fact that he never represented Serbia or its people in the first instance!
