assangeleaking2.jpg image 'Bad ... Ass ... ange' bluey, Tuesday, Apr 19 2011, 1:01am
A picture of Julian Assange pissing in Uncle Sam’s iconic American top hat has won the Bald Archy prize this year. The Bald Archy Art competition is a send-up of the pretentious Archibald Prize presided over by the Art Gallery of NSW and every pretentious bourgeois fart in the Sydney Art scene.

Figures released today by Fairfax media indicate that Gillard’s dysfunctional Labor government would suffer a huge defeat if an election were called today. I shan't bore you with statistical figures; however, I would outline some pertinent facts. (story and 1 image)

Gillard represents Corporate Interests image Shamelessly Servile Gillard sets Corporatist agenda in Oz Budget baz, Wednesday, Apr 13 2011, 10:52am
Australia has never seen anything quite like Julia ‘gargle’ Gillard; we have seen Howard suck Bush, Rudd attempt to create an absurd ‘NATO of the South Pacific’ for Murdoch, Keating surrender our currency/sovereignty to Wall St, Whitlam condemn the Balibo 5 to their deaths and Hawke slobber over Israeli Zionism but Gillard takes the cake for complete, unquestionable, unflinching, OBEDIENCE and servitude to international Corporatists and Bankers.

'knee pads' Smith image Oz Defence Minister Receives Death Threats Ian McPhedran via beat up, Tuesday, Apr 12 2011, 11:55am
In an very transparent and amateurish attempt to reclaim the front pages from former PM Rudd's recent revelation that current PM Julia Gillard opposed the ETS and stabbed Rudd in the back in order to displace him as PM, Gillard's media 'strategists' have fed novice reporters stories that the current defence minister, Stephen 'knee pads' Smith, received death threats after he unwisely and publicly poured scorn on senior defence officials.

Former NSW Labor minister and Lord Mayor of Sydney, Frank Sartor, confirmed last night what everybody knows -- the Corporates had effectively taken control of the party via huge donations. And so ENDED any future viability for the once peoples' party of NSW/Australia. (story and 1 image)

text Gillard and Abbott: Passive and Aggressive political EXTREMISM nano, Sunday, Mar 27 2011, 11:46pm
Gillard’s spineless Federal Labor government has been scurrying around like the rodents they are looking for a political response to the crushing defeat of Labor in the State of NSW and they think they’ve found a suitable diversionary tactic with which to distract the Australian public and also use as a defence against the constant barrage of onslaughts by Jesuit trained, Nazi attack dog, opposition leader, Tony Abbott!

Bye bye, Kristina image NSW elections -- Kiss the Yank GOODBYE! nann, Friday, Mar 25 2011, 11:00pm
What a thorough travesty it was enduring a NSW leader with a stinking American accent -- for pete's sake! What were Labor morons that placed that fellatrice in power thinking? No doubt exposed CIA lackey, Mark Arbib, played his part in creating one of the most devastating Labor defeats in the history of NSW politics -- good riddance to American rubbish and the thoroughly CORRUPT NSW (Labor) right.

PDF Document Voting is NO LONGER about the Major Puppet Parties, it’s about real REPRESENTATION smiley, Thursday, Mar 24 2011, 8:45pm
With a State election less than 24 hours away in NSW it is now time to wake from the media-induced hypnosis and saturation coverage of two only major party candidates and REALISE Y-O-U are able to VOTE for ANYONE you please, preferably someone that REALLY REPRESENTS YOUR INTERESTS, as it is ABUNDANTLY CLEAR the MAJOR parties represent the BIG end of TOWN or the Corporatist agenda. And as everyone now knows Transnational Corporations are responsible for the wholesale rape and pillage of our natural resources and polluting the environment. Furthermore, corporations only return tiny fractions of the ENORMOUS PROFITS they plunder to the people and society. That is how UNREPRESENTATIVE government works! (story and 1 attached file)

The final resting place of prominent Aboriginal figure (in white history) Woollarawarre Bennelong, has been found in the front garden of a Sydney suburban residence by researcher, Dr Peter Mitchell.

taser2.jpg image [QLD] Cop who fired Taser 28 times and killed the victim thought it didn't hurt Evan Schwarten via barra, Friday, Mar 11 2011, 6:28am
Some time ago we featured a story of a Queensland cop who murdered an Italian Australian with REPEATED strikes of a (new 'toy' for police at the time) Taser. The murdered victim of this flagrant case of police brutality, culminating in murder, was Tasered a staggering 28 times before he finally died -- another job well done MORON, Queensland Pigs!

It has now emerged that the police offender had no idea of the lethal potential of the weapon and its ability to inflict pain and cause death -- perhaps a basic IQ test and personality assessment is now in order for all Queensland police. However, these tests run the risk of revealing to the public that the majority of Queensland police are psychologically unfit for the job!

Bad Company -- Gillard with lunatic, bomb, bomb, bomb Iran, John McCain image Oz PM Julia Gillard on the end of a stick bluey, Wednesday, Mar 9 2011, 7:01am
Australia’s Gillard LABOR government is about as popular as a piece of dog shit on the end of a stick at the moment. Gillard has just allowed the US to use Oz as an active, large scale military base – who asked the people? [Are we beginning to feel like Filipinos yet?] She is also attempting to implement the Goldman Sachs designed Carbon Trading scheme (con) based on the FALSE premise that Carbon emissions are the cause of Global warming – any independent scientist would inform you that the SUN is the major driver of climate on our planet and increased Carbon levels are a CONSEQUENCE of global warming NOT the cause.

And like the servile lackey she is, Oz PM Julia Gillard fell over herself to grant every U.S. wish without proper deliberation or parliamentary debate -- notwithstanding the FACT that America’s civilian killing record to date easily qualifies it as the WORLD’S LEADING TERRORIST STATE -- fact!

Lying bitch Oz PM, Julia Gillard – ‘my government will never introduce a carbon tax’ – has taken a predictable hammering in the latest polls; primarily as a consequence of her LACK of INTEGRITY regarding introducing a Carbon Tax; notwithstanding her shameless kowtowing to Transnationals, Banking and other Corporate interests.

Kristina Keneally image Bereft Yank Premier Divorced from Reality baz, Tuesday, Feb 22 2011, 7:15pm
A headline from one of Murdoch’s Aussie rags reads, “Kristina Keneally says she can still win NSW state election!” For international readers not familiar with this woman, she is an AMERICAN pretending to power in the State of NSW, Australia – not difficult to understand in view of the recent WikiLeaks exposure of Labor Party factional leader, Mark Arbib’s treasonous relationship with Washington. If that revelation doesn’t turn the Australian people then the prospect of enduring more incompetence from a Yank State Premier, might. (story and 1 image)

Shirley Temple could do a better job in Defence image Oz Defence and the Price of Political Subservience to America major mitchell, Friday, Feb 18 2011, 6:45pm
I will only elaborate here, as a running history of our treasonous politicians’ absolute servitude to Washington at the EXPENSE OF OUR NATION’S REAL DEFENCE CAPABILITY is available for reference on this site. From disastrous submarine purchases to the recent inferior quality and costly Superhornet purchases (at Washington’s insistence) Oz politicians have not only been GROSSLY derelict in their duty but downright TREASONOUS! We are now less capable in the region than we were prior to recent defence ‘upgrades.’ Indonesia has countered our ill-advised, INCOMPETENT purchases with less costly but FAR SUPERIOR weaponry and aircraft purchased from Russia – not to mention Singapore, soon to PURCHASE OUR STOCK EXCHANGE, and China’s expanding role in the region.

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)

text Fireblight: A Matter of Backbone and Sovereignty happy jack, Monday, Nov 29 2010, 9:01pm
A foreign organisation, the World Trade Organisation (WTO) is demanding that Australia open its quarantine doors to the possibility of fireblight disease from imported New Zealand apples. Oz has enforced a ban on NZ apples for decades and as we are aware our local industry is not only able to supply local markets but exports volumes to Asia and other nations. So why the imposition from a foreign 'authority' telling us what to do with our crucial food crops – the answer lies somewhere between a jelly fish and servile mammals without backbones.
