text There are no wars if WE choose NOT to fight for Corporate Profits penn, Monday, Dec 13 2010, 5:59am
WikiLeaks has proven that the Corporate controlled Terrorist nation of America cannot buy or intimidate everyone.

We, the free people of the WORLD RESIST to the END the CORPORATE ideology of profit at any cost. We REJECT completely and emphatically the perversity that values profit above human life. The GLOBAL COMMUNITY is ONE; we embrace each other in Peace and Love and in UNITY work together to eliminate the perversity that has infected our governments and hijacked OUR Democracies.

text There’s something about Julian … nano-thermite, Sunday, Dec 12 2010, 12:58am
Julian Assange of WikiLeaks, is an enigmatic widely known person that can’t seem to stay out of the media since he abandoned his anonymous mode of operation. He is regarded as a hero by some and a dangerous subversive by others yet many remain guarded, perplexed and undecided in their opinion of this eccentric Australian man, nevertheless, he has been given unprecedented Corporate media attention and has forced the world to confront the ‘issue/s’ he raises.

text WikiLeaks/Assange Exploiting Global Discontent over Corporate and Government Corruption stylus, Thursday, Dec 9 2010, 8:48pm
The media, by conscious design or by nature, regularly whips culture into a frenzy; it is entirely in character for this to occur. However, when this social phenomenon occurs it is easy to lose sight of the REAL engines that drive the ‘beast.’

Albino Kookaburra image WTC 7 and WikiLeaks nano-truther, Monday, Dec 6 2010, 11:55am
I find it very “annoying” that U.S. agencies would use WikiLeaks to tighten their grip on the Internet – which is bringing down the ruling elite! What I’m saying, Julian, is would you like to dispel the theory that you are just another CIA Psyop by revising your statement on 9/11? My blind black dog knows what nano-thermite is and who manufactures it, not to mention all the overwhelming facts that NY firefighters and the ‘architects and engineers for 9/11 Truth’ have accrued. These people are specialised professionals not conspiracy whackos and they say the government explanation of the 9/11 attacks is ABSURD! (story and 2 comments and 2 images)

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)

The latest revelations from WikiLeaks are an anti-climax of sorts as all the crimes, now minutely detailed, have been known for decades. It was all in the public domain prior to Mr Assange spotlighting what the U.S. has been at pains to keep in the shadows since it embarked on its criminal mission broadly outlined in the PNAC document.

text Perforating Media Propaganda stan, Saturday, Oct 23 2010, 7:39pm
Sustaining and promulgating LIES is a very tiresome, expensive, involved and cumbersome business for the Corporate media; but exposing mindless spin, obfuscations and subterfuges is as simple as asking the OBVIOUS question: what would YOU do if a foreign power invaded your homeland killed family members (innocent civilians) and attempted to appropriate your nation’s resource wealth? Two answers immediately present themselves, FIGHT to restore your nation’s sovereignty or COWER and accept slavery under foreign rule – what is YOUR answer? (story and 1 comment)

text Chorus of Resistance versus the Shrill of Tyranny Michael Edwards via stylus, Monday, Oct 4 2010, 8:49pm
Humanity is rebelling worldwide to the dictates of elite overlords and petty bureaucrats alike. The small, silent statements of resistance have reached a crescendo, a classic tipping point. Whether it is tax rebellion, free speech, freedom of religion, the freedom to speak out against endless war, women’s rights in oppressive regimes, or the freedom to grow one’s own non-toxic food, the small defeats and victories have become a sustained chorus of resistance to ever-increasing forces of oppression and control. This chorus has coalesced from the choirs of different nations, different genders, different political affiliations, different races, and different socio-economic positions. This is the ultimate sign of a true tipping point; critical mass has been reached. (story and 1 comment)

The Corporate controlled media is currently overflowing with outright bullshit regarding America’s wars of invasion and occupation. The line running is that the combat mission in Iraq is at an end and that the war is ‘over;’ also that ‘progress’ is being made in Afghanistan and that that war is ‘winnable.’ To add to those American dreams is the frantic sell that the global economy is ‘recovering.’ (story and 1 image)

audioPDF Document Corporate Rule: Proof Irrefutable major mitchell, Monday, Jun 14 2010, 10:41pm
The now anachronistic ‘Department of Defense’ (DoD) recently released a commercial business assessment (see link) of Afghanistan's resource and mineral wealth, which has been measured in the hundreds of BILLIONS of DOLLARS -- a routine matter for Corporations BUT an extraordinary assessment by the Pentagon, which traditionally should be an arm of government charged with the responsibility of national security and defense! Perhaps a name change for the obsolete traditional military is warranted, how about the ‘Department of Greed and Invasion or Civilian Killing and Holocausts or Resource Plundering and Theft etc;’ I’m sure readers could offer hundreds more accurate titles for the obscenity that has occurred these past few days?

text Gaza: when world leaders become irrelevant stylus, Wednesday, Jun 2 2010, 7:59am
We are heartened that divergent groups of brave, freedom loving people of conscience came together to form a multinational peace force to assist their fellow human beings in distress – the highest ideal of civilised humanity and the major religions has been realised by a humanitarian aid convoy sailing to relieve the long suffering people of Gaza. It seems the designs of a few sick Zionist minds to transform the new century into a permanent warring hell may have been thwarted. Peaceful resistance has been re-affirmed as the most powerful force for social change known to civilised society. [I need not remind readers which nations adhere to the ideology of ‘permanent war’ – this past decade bears horrific testimony to the carnage perpetrated on an unsuspecting world by ISRAEL and AMERICA.] (story and 2 comments)

Catching psychopaths requires not only the ability to ‘think’ like a psychopath but also the ability to behave as one – being careful to direct all such behaviours to psychopaths only! Unfortunately there are no other effective means by which to apprehend, contain or ‘nail’ these evil criminals. (story and 2 images and 2 audio files)

Bereft -- General Stanley McChrystal image Iraq: an American ‘Success’ Story Al, Monday, May 10 2010, 11:45pm
Iraq is an excellent example of American ‘success,’ knowhow and ‘genius,’ is it not? Afghanistan is proving a better example still! These two screaming, REAL LIFE examples of American incompetence, ineptitude, overt flouting of international law and human rights, just won’t fade into the background. Almost daily the newswires contain more horrid examples of civilian killing by Americans and the MASSIVE DESTABILISATION that ensues. The ‘stability, liberty and democracy’ that America promised Iraq, Afghanistan, Pakistan AND the WORLD, is proving to be a very bitter experience for the innocent civilians of Iraq, Afghanistan and Pakistan. Take a quick squiz at the REALITY today and VERIFY the truth for yourself. (story and 3 comments and 1 image)

audio Criminal elites – see how they run! ryall, Wednesday, Apr 28 2010, 9:30pm
As a kid I enjoyed a fairytale about a Lion raised as a sheep. One day, faced with predatory wolves, this LION realised who it was and what it was FULLY capable of; it easily vanquished the threat to its loved ones and its society. Today, as an adult, the allegory is clear – those unfamiliar with this delightful animated story should search Youtube for, ‘Lambert the Sheepish Lion.’ (story and 1 audio file)
