indefinite_obama.jpg image Welcome to Obama’s Indefinite Military Detention America snowy, Sunday, May 27 2012, 12:46am
State prosecutors, with the approval of Constitutional LAW professor, cocaine snorting, pot smoking, Barack ‘errand boy’ Obama, recently ‘urged’ a female judge (‘onya girl) to lift her ruling against a provision in the NDAA Act for indefinite military detention, which was passed into law by ‘puff, puff,’ Obama. A most curious ‘urging,’ wouldn’t you think? The provision is unambiguously/CLEARLY unconstitutional, yet Obama’s legal henchmen want the Nazi inspired provision to stay! [But bear in mind, “when the President does it, it’s not (Fascist or) illegal!”] (story and 1 image)

Prisoner of conscience, denied rights and due process image The 'Railroading' of Bradley Manning continues while the people watch American Idol ronnie, Friday, May 25 2012, 1:51pm
America abandoned justice when it legalised torture; so it comes as no surprise that the railroading of Manning is being conducted in secret. Various bodies have requested more transparency, however, all applicants have been placed on a watch list for possible indefinite detention in the near future -- welcome to America, home of the slave, land of the God knows what?

In what may be his last voluntary public appearance, “gifted hacker,” publisher and founder of the WikiLeaks whistle blowing website, has worn the V for Vendetta mask, which has become the default icon of the ANONYMOUS underground – a rapidly growing army of invisible hackers and specialists that present the only real VIABLE opposition to the criminal ruling elites of today.

goog.jpg image Secure Web Search Alternatives to CIA/Google leo, Tuesday, May 22 2012, 10:25pm
GOOGLE has earned a notorious reputation for unfair and shady commercial practices; it has been dragged before anti-trust bodies in the US and Europe on NUMEROUS occasions; it is also a known CIA 'business' partner. Its former CEO and CURRENT chairperson, Eric Schmidt, is also a BILDERBERG attendee; so we know where this company is coming from -- data mining, surveillance and unfair corporate practices with EXTREME bias!

image NATO Chicago Protests Captain, Monday, May 21 2012, 12:20pm
It was heartening to see Iraq and Afghan veterans marching in Chicago with throngs of civilian protesters. Veterans made passionate anti-war statements before throwing their war medals at the NATO venue; "I choose life," one veteran exclaimed as he tossed his medals away. Who knows more about the injustices of war than those that fight it and the innocents unjustly affected by it? Obama and the war mongers have no idea of the horrors of war, which why they so easily advocate war instead of Peace. (story and 2 comments and 1 image)

text NATO expands because it is UNCHALLENGED by (COWARDLY) Russia and China lux, Sunday, May 20 2012, 1:11am
That's basically the long and short of it. All the ballyhoo surrounding the clearly criminal organisation of NATO is of no major consequence; NATO will continue its criminal military occupations, murder and expansionism until it is challenged by a greater or equal force on the world stage -- THAT SIMPLE!

It is a known that the combined military and nuclear strength of China and Russia is equal to that of the West -- and is fully capable of reducing continental America and Western Europe to ash! (story and 1 comment)

I've got a question for all the dreamboats out there. In the absence of any -- that means there is NONE -- corroborating or supporting evidence, do YOU believe the '20' times revised fairy tale of the Bin Laden assassination by American Navy Seals? If so, then go watch American idol or better yet there's a new comic book movie with Captain America and all the other comical 'Avengers', you vacuum-heads! (story and 1 image)

By any other name image Battle for the Mind - loss of Focus today equals loss of Freedom will, Thursday, May 17 2012, 10:47pm
I am constantly reminded of the deteriorating mental condition of the moronic masses and their postage stamp attention spans these days. The major issues and crimes of our time have almost become footnotes in the mass media while prurient or hollow stories steal the attention of the morons. It is well that we remember that there is a price for everything and that "the price of ignorance is slavery!" (story and 2 images)

text Thousands Plan Protests Against NATO Chicago Summit poppy, Saturday, May 12 2012, 12:23am
Bush once let it slip but got it right; the NATO/US/Banker/Corporatist alliance promoting permanent WAR, murder and PLUNDER for the personal gain of the elite few, are simply modern day CRUSADERS -- nothing distinguishes them from the paid mercenaries the Vatican dispatched to destroy the competing church of Byzantium and relieve it of its huge stores of gold, silver and other wealth. History records that under the GUISE of liberating the 'Holy Land' Byzantium was duly sacked and its wealth appropriated by murdering, thieving MERCENARIES in the service of the Vatican -- the Templars being the most conspicuous mercenary force answering only to the Pope in Rome!

Deserving of all the contempt and hostility the public directs at criminal Wall St Banksters, JP Morgan, Goldman Sachs etc., chief honcho of JP Morgan, Jamie Dimon, openly apologised for wrong doings – “self inflicted mistakes” (O, really!) -- and admitted that certain practices the Bank engaged in were unprincipled – understatement of the year!

Regardless of all the (now known) lies and feeble propaganda, ALL today’s wars are fought for Corporate PROFIT – filthy money! Where is the HONOUR in that? Indoctrinated soldiers were led to believe that Saddam Hussein was responsible for 9/11 -- an internal US/Mossad black flag operation in the same CRIMINAL, TRAITOROUS tradition as the USS Liberty attack. The American Reichstag burning (9/11) was 'necessary' in order to launch and justify Corporate America’s ILLEGAL, invasive, corporate WARS of PLUNDER! (story and 1 comment)

obama_wallstreet.jpg image Obama has "reservations" but he complies anyway! zed, Saturday, May 5 2012, 11:58pm
Drone addicted, child killing, war criminal president Obama -- let's face facts for a change -- pretends to have 'reservations' regarding HIS ROLE in America's rapid descent into a fascist, military State. The latest news is 're-education camps' for activists and social dissenters. Just think independently for a moment and ask how any President of the ONCE free United States could approve a LAW that indefinitely incarcerates without charge or the option of a trial -- I mean think about THAT before you are taken for another distracting propaganda or evangelical fantasy ride!

It was an American event journo's dinner at the White House that triggered this response. Obama is now known internationally as just another puppet clown serving Wall St elites; it has become painfully obvious to the world that this black (sell-out) lackey is completely devoid of compassion and any sense of empathy with the common people, as indeed are ALL political leaders in Western (former) democracies today.
