carbonemissions.jpg image Carbon Markets Are NOT Cooling the Planet Stephen Leahy via pip, Thursday, Jun 23 2011, 11:16am
Carbon markets have been widely promoted as the only way to generate enough money to enable industries and countries to reduce their carbon dioxide emissions, which are largely responsible for global warming. The only problem is that nearly 20 years after their conception, they have failed to work, and have also been subject to fraud and other financial crimes. (story and 1 image)

ICELAND IS FREE! And it will remain so, so long as her people wish to remain autonomous of the foreign domination of her would-be masters — in this case, international bankers.

bitcoin.jpg image Bitcoin Explained Andy Greenberg via bill, Monday, Jun 20 2011, 10:18am
Bitcoin is a grassroots nonprofit project that seeks to fashion a new currency out of little more than cryptography, networking and open-source software, and Gavin Andresen is the closest thing the project has to a director. Bitcoin is not, he explains, just a new way to digitally spend dollars, pounds or yen. That's been tried before. (story and 1 image)

text 9/11 and the Ministry of Truth Paul Craig Roberts via stan, Monday, Jun 20 2011, 7:37am
The purest example of how Americans are shielded from truth is the media’s (including many Internet sites) response to the large number of professionals who find the official explanation of September 11, 2001, inconsistent with everything they, as experts, know about physics, chemistry, structural engineering, architecture, fires, structural damage, the piloting of airplanes, the security procedures of the United States, NORAD’s capabilities, air traffic control, airport security, and other matters. These experts, numbering in the thousands, have been shouted down by know-nothings in the media who brand the experts as “conspiracy theorists.” This despite the fact that the official explanation endorsed by the official media is the most extravagant conspiracy theory on record.

text Europeans Balk at Their Role in NATO Marti Hiken via reed, Sunday, Jun 19 2011, 2:28am
Robert Gates’ recent public diatribe against the 28 members of NATO (1) who are “consuming security and not producing it,” and not doing their fair share in the bloody fighting, is either a warning or harbinger that the relationship between the U.S. and the European nations is changing. European nations are refusing to participate in America’s wars, and the U.S. doesn’t like it.

Not to be outdone by the yobbo blokes, a female pig has been arrested after openly pissing on Central Sydney’s Hyde Park War Memorial – well, when you’re blind drunk and ya gotta go, ya just gotta go, so why not make an anti-war statement in the process?

Regardless of her very predictable defence, Hyde Park abounds in trees located away from the busy pedestrian walkway around the War Memorial and the gaze of private security guards. Silly little drunken piglet!

Recent hacks around the 'globe' (space is irrelevant) are designed to demonstrate a few digital REALITIES to the WORLD, not least of which is the MYTH that western governments are in control; that 'your' governments are protecting you etc, etc; nothing could be further from the TRUTH as the recent Hacks on the CIA and other MEGA Corporations (that spare no expense to safeguard their data) clearly demonstrate!

The hacker group LulzSec claimed credit Wednesday for taking down the CIA’s Web site for a couple of hours, the latest in a string of embarrassing Web site disruptions the group has pulled off — apparently more to poke fun and highlight vulnerabilities than to cause real damage.

facebookprivacylaws.jpg image 'Tracebook' denies Users Leaving in Droves staff report via reed, Wednesday, Jun 15 2011, 12:00am
Favourite police and agency resource, Facebook, recently denied losing users though the stats would indicate otherwise. It seems the alienated, lost generation has finally become disillusioned with their 'digital friends' and a company that refuses to delete sensitive data at the request of the user!

Collecting highly personal and detailed profiling data was not enough for this intrusive company. Facebook has now included a Big Brother type digital face recognition 'feature' which would allow authorities to detect you in a crowd with street cameras, should the (future) occasion arise!

Wake up, you LOST, lonely, morons!

Gen. Petraeus, LIAR and war criminal image 90% of General Petraeus' Captured 'Taliban' Were Civilians! Gareth Porter via gan, Sunday, Jun 12 2011, 11:58pm
There is no avoiding the HARSH reality today that American military personnel are uniformed mercenaries fighting illegal, civilian killing, Corporate wars against people who want nothing more than to be rid of all murdering foreign invaders and occupiers.

From the Balkans to Libya the Corporate mass media's LIES have become transparent and the war crimes obvious; "humanitarian/terrorist," pretexts exposed!

ALL the wars that rage today are fought in the CRIMINAL INTERESTS of Central Reserve Banking and Transnational Corporations -- plain to see!

The vile, mass murdering, criminal filth behind these NEEDLESS wars are known to us all; they deserve the harshest penalties available under the LAW for their complicity in the most heinous crimes committed this century and for the mass deception their media attempted on the WORLD'S MORAL MAJORITY!

Money Lenders, 1466 image How Banks Create and Destroy Money Robert Bonomo via stan, Sunday, Jun 12 2011, 10:42am
The mechanics of modern banking are opaque, misunderstood and arguably dishonest. Modern fiat money, the dollar, euro, yen etc are all based on debt. For every dollar in existence, there is somewhere an IOU for the same amount. This is best illustrated with an example of a typical mortgage. (story and 1 comment and 1 image)

Whether on the streets of Greece and other European nations or via other means, including DIGITAL WARFARE -- THE 'MAN' is GOING DOWN. A world led by mass murdering criminal Bankers and Corporatists is completely UNACCEPTABLE. Justice will prevail as WE will PREVAIL.

deathofthedollar.jpg image China warns U.S. debt-default idea is "playing with fire" Emily Kaiser via fleet, Thursday, Jun 9 2011, 1:04am
Notwithstanding the fact that China like every other nation is AWARE that the USA is unable to honour its fourteen (14) trillion dollar national debt! We hope all nations that subscribe to the criminal Reserve Central Banking System enjoy getting their fingers burned by the criminal Banking elites in America. Russia and China, by supporting the dollar, are as much to blame for ALL America's raging illegal wars as America itself.

It would have been prudent to voluntarily dump the dollar and be rid of the problem once and for all, than to have criminally corrupt Americans DEFAULT on DEBT at a time of THEIR choosing! You deserve everything you are about to receive China/Russia!

The following video, compiled from ABC and 60 minutes sources, delivers a clear and frightening message of government corruption by Corporatists and the wanton destruction of our environment and precious ground water.

Legal injunctions to halt the destructive and toxic gas mining practice known as "Fracking" must be issued immediately. The sooner our corporate compliant puppet government is held accountable for its clearly destructive actions the better.
