text Social Reality Pill yarra, Wednesday, Mar 18 2009, 9:01pm
For those living in the subterranean depths and for others who may not yet have noticed that one of the world’s great ‘religions’/ideologies has COMPLETELY FAILED! The STARK REALITY of today is that FREE MARKET CAPITALISM is DEAD or at the very least [is] a FLAWED and failed system. (story and 3 comments)

Paul 'fingers' Keating image Paul Keating’s recent ‘sledging’ of Timothy Geithner in context Kingfisher, Tuesday, Mar 17 2009, 10:48pm
Perhaps no Western leader was closer to the CIA backed, mass murdering former Indonesian President, General Soeharto than former Australian PM, Paul Keating. It would be fair to say that Soeharto and Keating were as ‘thick as thieves.’ (story and 2 images)

text The FARCE that is the International Criminal Court (ICC) Kingfisher, Thursday, Mar 5 2009, 12:40am
China has questioned the “legitimacy” of the ICC immediately after it issued a warrant for the arrest of the President of Sudan, Omar Hassan al-Bashir, for alleged war crimes and crimes against humanity. The ‘legitimacy’ of the court is in question due to its flagrant PARTIALITY -- we haven’t heard a peep from the ICC regarding warrants and charges against American or Israeli war criminals to date! And that is not for lack of EVIDENCE, which is freely available in the PUBLIC DOMAIN, notwithstanding the compromising public admissions (relating to torture) made on national television by former VP, Dick Cheney! Is it possible that ICC (and UN) investigators are so blind or incompetent? Highly unlikely! OR IS THE COURT A BRAZENLY BIASED INSTITUTION OF POLITICAL CONVENIENCE AND THEREFORE LEGALLY ILLEGITIMATE in every sense of the word?

text Short memories and cowardice among ‘Superpowers’ birdie, Tuesday, Mar 3 2009, 12:41am
The avowed enemy of Russia, China and the entire free world, as the crimes of the past decade clearly indicate, is the criminal, terrorist (by any definition) USA! But what is Russia and China actually doing to forever hamstring this evil, mass murdering influence and prevent it wreaking more horror and havoc on the world? (story and 1 comment)

How desperate, exhausted and thoroughly dispirited are the American people today?

American leaders in the public and private sectors have all but destroyed the nation with their lies, false hope and massive frauds. However, few analysts and advisers it seems are aware of the cost and consequences of constantly deceiving and ABUSING the people. (story and 5 comments and 1 image)

Up to 20,000 jobs will be shed as the Royal Bank of Scotland attempts to recover from the appalling mismanagement of its executive class.

bushfiresun.jpg image Oz Parliament Suspended fish, Monday, Feb 9 2009, 8:46am
The Australian Parliament suspended normal business today to acknowledge the bushfire tragedy that continues to impact the State of Victoria. Politicians from both sides of the House expressed their sympathies for the victims. As of 11 Feb., 181 lives have been lost to the fires. Large townships have been severely impacted and some historical hamlets have been wiped out completely. Expressions of grief and sorrow gushed from Parliament House like the water pillaged from our artesian basin by BHP-Billiton! Today is a day of national reflection for more reasons than one.

Alexander received mortal wound at the hands of Pashtun warriors image Central Asia, Nemesis of Empire Kingfisher, Saturday, Feb 7 2009, 10:13pm
Is it coincidence that organised crime flourishes wherever the US engages in its imperial wars of acquisition and exploitation? Only a fool or the uninformed civilian population would think that explosive increases in heroin production in Indo-China and Afghanistan were unrelated to American militarism. American military intervention in those regions was immediately followed by massive increases in opiate production. The ‘golden triangle’ and the so-called ‘golden crescent’ have become infamous as the largest heroin producing centres on the planet, what do you suppose is the common causative factor in these vastly divergent -- culturally and geographically -- regions? Does organised criminal activity ‘follow’ the USA or is the USA the world’s leading criminal and terrorist organisation? (story and 1 comment and 1 image)

text ‘Yes we can,’ what? dingo, Thursday, Feb 5 2009, 7:45pm
A previous post put it to the American people clearly and without ambiguity; “well, what the fuck CAN YOU?” During the US election campaign the world watched with great amusement (millions) of mindless American morons chanting “YES WE CAN!” Another typically ambiguous and directionless chant/slogan missing the VITAL QUALIFIER to give it meaning and DIRECTION!

'Yes we can,' but REALITY indicates, NO you CANNOT! image Three high profile fugitives, Bush, Blair and Howard nano, Tuesday, Feb 3 2009, 8:20pm
As the world takes stock of the military and economic CARNAGE these men are responsible for it becomes ever more URGENT -- imperative in fact -- to place them in the dock of a war crimes tribunal and hold them accountable for their actions. We have no illusions, of course we are aware they are merely pawns but they CONSCIOUSLY engaged in the most heinous crimes committed this century and expedited the now FAILED strategies of various powers and interests – THESE MEN ARE ABLE TO LEAD US TO THE SHADOWY FIGURES that have for years PULLED THE STRINGS BEHIND THE SCENES.

text A Procession of Fools peptide, Saturday, Jan 31 2009, 4:10am
The leading contributing factor to the liberation of the enslaved masses in the early 21st century was the brazen and overt criminality of the Bush and other allied regimes. The Bush regime singlehandedly and irreparably undermined every aspect of social cohesion, traditional value, regulation and legality in the western world. Among its most outstanding ‘achievements’ are a civilian holocaust in Iraq, perpetrated in the name of ‘liberty, freedom and democracy,’ and the blind pursuit of de-regulated, free-market capitalism, which culminated in the destruction of the GLOBAL economy! No small feats considering Bush’s tenure in office was only eight short years! (story and 1 comment)

text Obama’s lack of integrity alienates world Kingfisher, Friday, Jan 23 2009, 5:40pm
Obama has alienated a world that believed his message of ‘hope and change!’ His FAILURE to pursue the many torturers and war criminals of the previous administration is perhaps the primary factor contributing to the massive disillusionment of the people. (story and 2 comments)

Obama image Silver Lining: musings from the hacker elite! Kismo, Friday, Jan 16 2009, 8:49pm
Every ‘dark cloud’ has a silver lining and Obama is no exception. The first thing to learn about victory is NEVER LOSE HEART! So what, if Obama is proving to be the greatest traitor and betrayer since Benedict Arnold; the American Revolution survived Arnold, gained momentum and forged onward to FINAL VICTORY. How much easier to overcome a slick, TRANSPARENT, no-conscience, carpetbagger like Obama? Too bloody easy, mate! (story and 1 image)

The mainstream has always been SLOW to adapt to the latest technologies; an amusing and highly exploitable fact/situation. Antiquated media modes of communication and moguls too old to change have no answer to the millions of independent digital voices that speak in one voice whenever the need arises.

Déjà vu image Obama and a status quo we can believe in! nano, Saturday, Jan 3 2009, 12:30am
Sit back, relax and we’ll do it for you – why not exploit existing conditioning? It would not be an oversimplification to state that Obama won a presidential campaign based on two words and one second-hand slogan, ‘Change,’ ‘Hope’ and ‘Yes we can!’ In any other nation people would have demanded generous helpings of DETAIL served with their ambiguities, but not in lobotomised America, a land where a good slogan can take you to the top. The American people have once again paid the price for investing meaning where none previously existed – it’s an old (tired) advertising TRICK that continues to work on gullible, ill-educated populations!

text Doomed to failure: Wall St Banksters continue to Deceive quill, Sunday, Dec 21 2008, 12:08am
The following analysis is revealing for a number of shocking reasons, not least of which is that criminal Wall St Banksters are attempting to deceive their way out of insolvency by creating money from nothing! Isn’t that what caused the global financial collapse in the first instance? What have these white-collar criminals learnt, NOTHING, it seems?
