text The New Secessionists Chris Hedges via reed, Tuesday, Apr 27 2010, 7:44pm
Acts of rebellion which promote moral and political change must be [but are rarely] nonviolent. And one of the most potent nonviolent alternatives in the country, which defies the corporate state and calls for an end to imperial wars, is the secessionist movement bubbling up in some two dozen states including Vermont, Texas, Alaska and Hawaii.

I would state at the outset this story is gross. It hovers between a joke in bad taste and a Greens MP playing marriage wrecker and Mata Hari. (story and 1 comment)

Obama: Pathetic Fraud and Despicable Traitor image Obama calls the 1915 Armenian Genocide an 'Atrocity' stan, Saturday, Apr 24 2010, 9:52pm
It gets more difficult for the world’s leading civilian killing, terrorist nation to phrase criticisms of infamous historical events by the day. As each day passes, more orders are given from US Air Command and CIA facilities to CONSCIOUSLY launch missiles from UAV Drones that kill and maim countless civilians – an act which REMAINS a WAR CRIME under international Law today. [The Hague Courts have lost all credibility and openly display their corrupt bias by NOT undertaking investigations into the world’s LARGEST State run criminal organisations.] (story and 1 comment and 1 image)

Before proceeding, I would openly state that Australia today is nothing more than a client state of the U.S. Former PM (and criminal) Paul Keating surrendered the last vestiges of Oz independence to Wall St criminal elites and the corporate sector decades past. (story and 1 comment and 2 images)

"If not for the notion of beauty there would be no ugliness. If not for the notion of good there would be no evil. Polarities alternate one with the other [qualify each other] and are mutually bound in [perpetual conflict] opposition." -- Lao tzu.

text Machiavelli and BIG LIE Politics Zahir Ebrahim via quill, Sunday, Apr 11 2010, 7:10pm
Once the hectoring hegemons have created a core-lie and got people to believe or accept it, namely, that ‘war on terror’ is real and “our war”, then many truths within the core-lie can be fabricated, and also are created due to their own natural dynamics with proper black-ops channeling to mobilize insurgency and then officially fighting it as “counter-insurgency”. A cook-book recipe for fabricating “revolutionary times”, for indeed, “what is inconceivable in normal times is possible in revolutionary times”! A self-sustaining system dynamics comes into existence which is closely managed and continually harvested to sustain “imperial mobilization”.

Notice how BOTH government and opposition stooges shy away from mentioning CENSORSHIP policies dictated to them by the likes of Murdoch, Big Business and Washington.

While Google now defends against China’s DRACONIAN censorship of internet information by re-directing mainland searches to unrestricted Hong Kong, AUSTRALIA'S Kevin ‘yes Rupert’ Rudd and opposition leader, Tony ‘errand boy’ Abbott, support information CENSORSHIP in the most REGRESSIVE policy move YET SEEN in Oz since media censorship was lifted in the 60's!

Obama, after throwing out every vestige of a PUBLIC health care model, COMPLETELY kowtowed to PRIVATE Health Insurance Corporatists by enforcing membership to private Insurance ‘care’ and providing government subsidies to the PRIVATE SECTOR for those who can’t afford coverage! No illusions regarding who or what REALLY holds power in Corporatist America, is there Baa’raack O’Lackey, you tap-dancing, servile, piece of shit! (story and 1 comment)

Good riddance, Mike Rann! image The Oz Servility Stakes – Labor faces Nationwide Obliteration! bluey, Friday, Mar 19 2010, 7:59pm
Mike Rann, South Australian Premier, is second only to his Federal counterpart, Kevin ‘custard face’ Rudd, in his obeisance to Corporatists and BIG Business. Rann is facing slaughter at the forthcoming State elections, which some analysts say will be an Oz-wide snowball effect – Rudd and his State Labor counterparts have proven to be the most unrepresentative Labor governments in the nation’s history – it’s ‘all the way’ with BIG Business/Washington and fuck the traditional support base of average working Aussies!

text Obama to ORDER Rudd on Policy Captain, Tuesday, Mar 16 2010, 10:18pm
How dare that puppet, Aussie flea, Kevin ‘CENSORSHIP’ Rudd, refuse our Mad Cow beef exports, who or what does that UNREPRESENTATIVE servile flea think he is, a REAL AUSTRALIAN or something? It’s confirmed, Obama will not risk an open visit to Oz due to increased security concerns; it seems yanks continue to regard Aussies as an unholy bunch of unpredictable and dangerous penal colonialists, rebels, renegades and Freedom Fighters, too dangerous a population for an open visit, can’t understand how they arrived at that conclusion! Nevertheless, Obama, who would rather not stop in Oz period, has been forced to visit Rudd in Canberra and instruct him on a number of policy decisions Washington wishes its puppet government to adopt!

Former and current Australian politicians who have clearly been bought by BIG Business have lined up in criticism of Tony Abbott’s new tax on Big Business to support his radical parental leave initiative. We have covered reprehensible criminal and Wall St servant Paul Keating’s criticism in a previous article. However, former conservative treasurer, Peter ‘supercilious prick’ Costello, remembered as the man who lacked the guts to fight for his party’s leadership, joined the fray later this afternoon in SUPPORT-- wouldn’t ya know it – of Kevin Rudd and BIG Business – LOL!

Former Indonesian arse-licker, money launderer -- the casino we had to have on Christmas Island -- Balibo denier, bank deregulator, reprehensible traitor and corrupt criminal, Paul ‘fingers’ Keating, sprang to the ‘aid’ of failing PM and reprehensible LACKEY, Kevin ‘custard face’ Rudd today, by taking a characteristically unconsidered, loud-mouthed swipe at opposition leader Tony ‘domini’ Abbott, calling him a policy devoid “little John Howard,” a [Rhodes Scholar] “intellectual nobody” and parliamentary “resident nutter!”

The Australian opposition leader, Tony Abbott is known as a combative, ultra-right wing, unapologetic, Catholic, arch-conservative – a PRODUCT not a person, a fabrication not an original! There is NOTHING in Abbott’s character that has not been created/superimposed by his ultra-conservative Catholic background – he is about as original as a Chinese fake! (story and 1 image)

text Speculation surrounds Obama’s proposed Oz ‘stopover!’ dasha, Sunday, Mar 14 2010, 8:25am
Amid heightened security concerns, the on-again, off-again Obama visit to Oz is generating more than its fair share of public criticism. Should recent media speculation on America’s real attitude to Oz, ‘a nation led by spineless, servile, lackeys of NO CONSEQUENCE,’ be safely ignored, or should it be taken seriously?

Joe 'identity crisis' Biden image U.S. Vice-President is living in his own private ‘Israel’ river, Thursday, Mar 11 2010, 4:53am
The headline could have been pulled from a speech dictated to former Oz PM, John ‘deputy sheriff’ Howard, when he shocked average Aussies with the ‘news’ that “America has no better friend than Australia;” that claim certainly was news to the Oz population that have always viewed Americans with a derisive and suspicious eye! In yet another indication that the ruling elite has run out of tricks, almost the exact same line was adapted for the US-Israel relationship. (story and 1 image)

The Constitution and the Bill of Rights have never been in greater peril than they are right now and the threat is coming from the US government, according to retired professional wrestler Jesse Ventura.
