Ben Roberts-Smith image Ben Roberts-Smith -- what 'You' know is what 'THEY' tell you! dasha, Tuesday, Feb 28 2012, 10:50pm
In the wake of a backlash against mindless TV hosts ridiculing an undeniably brave though clearly misled Aussie soldier, comes the facile propaganda effort from the powers -- video below

Few would deny this man's bravery or dedication but in VIEW of OVERWHELMING FACTS available in the public domain, his efforts are clearly misplaced. (story and 2 comments and 1 image)

Assange announcing release of hacked email trove image Hackers Assist Beleaguered WikiLeaks Cassandra Vinograd via no-one, Monday, Feb 27 2012, 10:13am
Hacker group Anonymous has delivered a trove of five million emails hacked from the analysis/intelligence firm Stratfor to WikiLeaks. Assange was in dire need of a haul like this as his site has been floundering since the Iraq/diplomatic cable release. Hopefully Assange will learn which side his bread is buttered on and give credit where it's due; not necessarily by name but by recognition of his 'anonymous' sources. (story and 1 image)

We need to be very clear on a principal issue before proceeding and that is, there is no God outside human experience, in other words ALL knowledge of God or Divine Ecstasy falls within HUMAN experience. We are now ready to explore the human experience of direct communication with 'God' otherwise known as mystic rapture.

goldingkevandliar.jpg image Oz Labor Party Suicides cyd, Saturday, Feb 25 2012, 7:52am
It is fitting that the clearly dysfunctional Labor Party of Australia is completely demolished from within by its last two leaders. The problem is not human frailty, though that is not in short supply in Labor ranks, but with an antiquated model that allows unrepresentative elements and factions to control the entire ship of insular fools -- and yes, how appropriate it is that the last two extremely flawed leaders close the curtain on Labor's future political viability for decades to come.

Bradley Manning facing life imprisonment for exposing the Truth image The Broader Implications of the Bradley Manning Case staff report via stan, Friday, Feb 24 2012, 11:03am
It should be noted at the outset that INVERTING JUSTICE and the moral right with these kangaroo proceedings against brave, homosexual whistleblower, Bradley Manning, will not 'cut-it' in ANY future historical context -- the case should actually be against the US military for civilian killing and other war crimes, which Manning exposed to the WORLD in the hope that the MORAL MAJORITY would be outraged and DEMAND action against the clearly criminally corrupt (Haditha massacre etc) US military! But alas the US population is a DEAD, paralysed, MORAL LOSS; as is, it seems, the entire FREE WORLD and that is THE major disappointment of this case. (story and 1 image)

Oz bush (wild) food image Lost Perspectives on Food and Eating sal, Friday, Feb 24 2012, 5:35am
It is extremely interesting to analyse how modern eating habits are 'created' and governed by certain forces, marketing/advertising and food 'experts'. The following highly enlightening and informative video on Food consumption and 'nutrition' in the modern era is highly recommended. Free yourselves from the tyranny of false authorities on food and nutrition. (story and 1 image)

"If Manning had been a member of the U.S. Marine squad that admitted to systematically murdering two dozen innocent Iraqi men, women, and children in Haditha, Iraq, he'd be walking free today," Obuszewski said in a release. "Instead, he faces the real prospect of life in prison for telling the truth." -- The Baltimore Sun (story and 1 comment)

text America's Bought Allies Take Note! krill, Thursday, Feb 23 2012, 7:01am
This applies to all standing corrupt governments that have taken the money and pocketed it for themselves. It especially applies to vassal states Canada, Australia, New Zealand, Kosovo, Iraq, Afghanistan, Libya, Pakistan, Italy, Greece, Spain, Portugal, Ireland and other conquered states and territories. The corrupt servile leaders of these States are hereby openly informed that you serve a nation that espouses and PURSUES a doctrine of PERMANENT WAR and INDEFINITE DETENTION without trial or charge, which effectively crucifies PEACE and deprives humanity of the most basic human rights! As such you share criminal responsibility in the MANY HEINOUS WAR and other CRIMES against humanity your Washington and Wall Street masters have committed and continue to commit daily.

cia.jpg imagePDF Document The CIA’s links to Wall Street Mark Gaffney via stele, Wednesday, Feb 22 2012, 10:44pm
One of the most successful frauds ever perpetrated upon the American people is the notion that the CIA exists to provide intelligence to the president. In fact, the CIA’s intimate links to Wall Street strongly suggest that the CIA was created to serve the perceived interests of investment bankers. The well documented links to Wall Street can be traced to the founding of the agency. (story and 1 image and 1 attached file)

War is NOT a priority, what is it good for, NOTHIN' ?

It serves minority criminal elites ONLY, at great cost to the planet and innocent human lives. It is TIME the people of the GLOBE learned that UNITY and friendly relations offer the only hope for future survival. AMERICA'S insatiable greed, permanent war doctrine and divisive ways are anathema to every living thing in this UNIVERSE -- make NO mistake, the plague on the planet that is indefinite detention, civilian killing, AMERICA must be ELIMINATED if the world hopes to live in peace, freedom and harmony.

Reminiscent of the half-million souls that turned out in LA protesting immigration laws some years back, Spaniards took to the streets across Spain in numbers that approached one million. These protests were/are designed to remind elite powers that everything was built on the backs of workers and not to take the masses for granted. (story and 1 image)

interraciallove.jpg image Acts of Love Chris Hedges via ryall, Monday, Feb 20 2012, 6:49am
Love, the deepest human commitment, the force that defies empirical examination and yet is the defining and most glorious element in human life, the love between two people, between children and parents, between friends, between partners, reminds us of why we have been created for our brief sojourns on the planet. Those who cannot love—and I have seen these deformed human beings in the wars and conflicts I covered—are spiritually and emotionally dead. They affirm themselves through destruction, first of others and then, finally, of themselves. Those incapable of love [have] never lived. (story and 3 images)
