text The Suppression of Information in the 21st Century Prof. James F. Tracy via stan, Sunday, May 20 2012, 9:37am
The police state’s framework for suppressing information and opinion arguably threatens all forms of independent thought and appears poised to intensify as the “war on terror” continues. As the recent emergence of US plans for indoctrination in reeducation camps reveals, Western governments’ actual enemy is the capacity for a people to exercise critical thought en route to intervening in and altering political-economic processes.

Performing puppets, Medvedev and Obama at G8 image Talk is cheap, Medvedev - a show of Force is required Gleb Bryanski via ben, Friday, May 18 2012, 11:12pm
We've heard it all before, Russia making 'threatening' noises but DOING NOTHING DEFINITIVE to support their 'hot air;' Putin was notorious for making ineffective, threatening 'noises!'

Consider for a moment the MANY regions/areas that Russia is able to legally intervene and challenge criminal US/NATO, and it becomes clear, the criminally corrupt Russian leadership is colluding with western criminal elites. A show of opposition must be maintained by performing political puppets in order to perpetuate the myth/ILLUSION of opposing superpowers. Until we witness a REAL reversal of US/NATO military expansionism -- you can blow your hot air (appropriately) out your COWARDLY, colluding arse, Russia (and China).

Sometimes we are jarred back into Reality with all the 'grace' and finesse of a mule kick. That 'kick' can come in many forms, on this occasion it came in the form of a headline from the UK Guardian, here it is unmodified:

PDF Document Federal Court Overrules NDAA Provision Glenn Greenwald via stan, Thursday, May 17 2012, 11:10pm
A federal district judge today, the newly-appointed Katherine Forrest of the Southern District of New York, issued a ruling: one which preliminarily enjoins enforcement of the highly controversial indefinite provisions of the National Defense Authorization Act, enacted by Congress and signed into law by [puppet] President Obama last December. This afternoon’s ruling came as part of a lawsuit brought by seven dissident plaintiffs — including Chris Hedges, Dan Ellsberg, Noam Chomsky, and Birgitta Jonsdottir — alleging that the NDAA violates ”both their free speech and associational rights guaranteed by the First Amendment as well as due process rights guaranteed by the Fifth Amendment of the United States Constitution.” (story and 1 comment and 1 attached file)

Though the video relates to Canada, it applies to any nation that is part of the global Reserve Banking system. Australia also had a national people's Bank, the appropriately named 'Commonwealth Bank' -- which was PRIVATISED by Labor Prime Minister, Paul Keating, who also dutifully floated our sovereign currency on Wall Street, thereby enslaving the nation to FOREIGN Big money interests!

Absolutely no apologies for the gross metaphor but what does it take to get a decisive reaction from Russia and China -- if indeed these two COWERING 'superpowers' are capable of reacting at all?

President, Hugo Chávez image Chávez's economics lesson for Europe Richard Gott via stan, Wednesday, May 16 2012, 9:00am
Prior to venturing into another philosophically locked article I would mention for those few who may be unaware that Karl Marx was a materialist and an economist! So he offered no real alternative to economics obsessed capitalists. Moving the ball from the forward line to the back line does not change the game or the rules -- as is painfully EVIDENT today.

Enjoy the read but do not forget that neither the 'Left or the 'Right' have any real solutions outside the cause of all the world's problems -- materialist ECONOMICS!

Protesters solemnly flying the Southern Cross image "A just republic for all, Aboriginal sovereignty now" staff report via jarra, Tuesday, May 15 2012, 11:03pm
Indigenous Australians seeking sovereign recognition [for two hundred years] have been forcibly removed from their protest site in Brisbane Australia. Onlookers witnessed heavy handed police state tactics with over 200 police deployed to remove a relatively small number of protesters. However, racist and socially backward Queensland, is known nationwide for its fascist police force and their numerous appearances in Court for murdering blacks and other citizens -- an Italian Australian was fatally Tasered 28 times by Queensland police!

A Freedom of Information Act (FOIA) request filed by Friends of the Earth (FoE), Physicians for Social Responsibility (PSR), and the Nuclear Information and Resource Center (NIRS) has unearthed a shocking series of new evidence proving a deliberate, global cover-up of the true severity of the Fukushima Daiichi nuclear disaster. And the unfortunate reality is that the mainstream media continues to blatantly ignore this colossal scandal.

Corporate puppets, Merkel and Sarkozy DEFEATED! image Resist or Die! Prof. Peter Phillips via stan, Monday, May 14 2012, 10:39pm
Runaway Corporatism is moving relentlessly towards sociopolitical-environmental collapse—cheered on by an owned two-headed single party machine known as US Congress. Activists, who see the coming disasters as catastrophic, are seeking revolutionary change through non-cooperation, and occupy disruptions. Yet, many are the still delusional hopefuls desperately fumbling with traditional responses; including "Kum ba yah" marches, and the futile support for progressive left-leaning candidates seeking positions of influence inside the Washington beltway.

Coining new terms to more accurately describe things is part of the living evolution of language -- "Crapoganda" aptly describes not only the specific instance here described but also 100% of the material that flows like sewage from the Corporate mass media. We thank whoever coined this new term, and we wish it every success in becoming a common, everyday part of modern parlance. (story and 5 images)
