Once again I am inspired by the propaganda pushing corporate ‘news’ into having a say about anything and everything that I think worth sharing and it has been awhile so obviously there’s lots to say.
It is truly incredible the extent of how filtered the news is. Yesterday I saw a news report on the IB that reported on all the refugees streaming out of Syria and in the process completely demonised the Assad Government. The fact that they failed to mention the recent confirmation by Russia that the ‘rebels’ i.e. the terrorists in Syria were the ones that have used Sarin gas, not Assad, highlighted the extent of the BS from channel whatever it was.
So here’s an update on that thanks to RT.. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=7Ysju7W6r_E
As always lots has happened since my last post, including the ousting of Leaders in Australia and Egypt, albeit with differing approaches, but the fact is that last time I wrote here, Gillard was PM of Australia and wasn’t going to step down, and Kevin Rudd had stated that there was no CONdition that he would return to the leadership position..
Rudd statement in March 2013 https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=EqGnE5pp3BA
And of course it was on multiple occasions prior to that when he stated time and time again that he wasn’t going for the PM’s job.
As for Egypt, well the supposedly ‘democratically’ elected Morsi turned out to be just another in a long line of Bankster puppets who signed up for multiple billion dollar loans with the good old IMF which included a range of their usual CONditionalities. In the case of Egypt, Morsi signed off on his own political demise off when he carried on implementing those conditionality clauses, which included a 100 percent increase on the price of fuel.
Imagine what that must have done for commerce, and subsequently for the peoples’ ability to service the interest on 8 billion bucks. Once again, the Banksters have wrecked the place and the people obviously felt the impacts and realised that things were worse under Morsi than they were under Mubarak.
The attention on Morsi may have also uncovered a potential reality of him being a CIA operative. Certainly the possibility exists, and if he were, strategically it would no doubt serve Washington well if Egypt was focused on domestic affairs and therefore be out of the picture if they were preparing to up the ante in Syria, which they are, obviously since the EU and US have confirmed that supplying arms to the Syrian rebels is underway.
However, obviously some Egyptians are of the opinion that Morsi was democratically elected and don’t like the military having ousted him and so the possibility of Egypt descending into a full blown civil war also exists.
Of course another point is that as more and more evidence has come to light in America that has identified the lies spewed forth in relation to what went down in Benghazi, there’s also another timely diversion with the media able to focus on the trouble in Egypt instead of showing the extent of the outraged American public over the NSA super snoopers.
With the (lol) Independence Day celebrations in America having come and gone it troubles me that every year for the past 5 years or so that I have really been on the trail of the global governance agenda, I have noticed how every year there is more and more erosion of liberty, more absurd events every year that emphatically highlight where America is heading – head first into a totalitarian dictatorship.
Australian Politics re cap
Anyway lets get back to Australia and a quick recap on events over the last few years
Right from the start when the dynamic duo first appeared as the leaders of the Labour party, it was a double act.
Then, after Rudd took the PM job, a while later Gillard ousted him and then he ousted her.
In my opinion it doesn’t really make a lot of difference whether it is Rudd or Gillard at the helm, because the policies are the same and lets face it, both leaders have a track record of saying one thing and doing the opposite.
Ok a few of the characters have been changed but really a large portion of the team are the same and the impacts of the last three years are still going to be felt for a few years to come yet.
So debate about it the mainstream media does, and gives airtime to the newly installed Prime Minister, the same ex Prime Minister that got booted out in the first place.
But let’s give the man a chance (again) shall we and see what he comes up with. The MSM certainly have been cheering the airwaves with their largely pro Rudd approach.
Within one day, KRudd went on the attack against the coalitions’ boat policy and hinted that would likely spark conflict with Indonesia right before he met with the Indonesian leader.
Way to go with the scare tactics Kevin, and possibly an indication that will be his approach in the run up to the election.
Never mind of course that the coalition had an effective policy in place that Rudd changed and caused the current state of mayhem regarding the numbers of boats arriving in Australia.
So now it is back to ‘the good old days’ with team Rudd whose only excuse for the current boat ‘problem’ is to make the excuse that things have moved on since the coaltion policy was in place. Forgetting to mention that the main reason for things having become a problem is because of changes made previously under team Rudd of old.
Just go and look at the statistics and be amazed at :
A) Just how effective the existing policy that the Coalition had put together compared to today.
B) How much of a problem is has become today
So now we are back with Rudd at the helm. Kyoto Kev who always wanted an ETS which of course is just another word for ‘carbon price’ i.e. a taxe albeit cheaper, which has sparked retribution from Ms Milne and Tony Abbot. Milne was upset because it cheapens the carbon tax and Abbott said that it is a crap tax and it shouldn’t exist as an ETS either.
Dearest and ‘best treasurer in the world’ Wayne Swan has gone recently, as well as our local man Stephen Smith, our national defence minister, as well as some of the other main players such a Greg Combet – six of the main characters in fact have quit.
The media didnt miss the changing allegiences of Bill Shorten, the man who once said he would agree with anything the Prime Minister said, even when he didn’t know what it was that she said, on national television, such was his allegiance, and then he confirmed his allegiance, by pronouncing he was backing Gillard and then decided to switch sides earning himself the title ‘turncoat kingmaker’ by the media http://www.dailytelegraph.com.au/news/bill-shorten-emerged-as-turncoat-kingmaker-to-return-kevin-rudd-to-the-labor-leadership/story-fni0cx4q-1226670518132
And over at news.com.au Shorten gets the headline ‘the man who knifed two PM’s’ http://www.news.com.au/national-news/federal-election/bill-shorten-the-man-who-knifed-two-prime-ministers/story-fnho52ip-1226670420184
Apparently the polls are showing that a return to Rudd has boosted Labours ratings with the public. I tend to think that is more of a knee jerk reaction from the people who are relieved that Gillard is gone and that the Labour party has a chance of re-election that sits somewhere between slim and none.
Just look at the latest rabble coming in.
If the last bunch of key front benchers didn’t have the combined experience to run a tuck shop, what are the chances that the newbies will have?
Roll on the election although at this point there is one hell of a mess to sort out regardless of who is at the helm.
Meanwhile we are told to forget Kyoto Rudd of old and welcome home nice new considerate positive Kev.
Things are no better elsewhere in the world either at the Federal level across the world it looks like a right old two and 8.
From Obama the dictator to the E.U. hyenas, the entire developed world has been all but overrun by madmen through their puppets that they funded into place.
Whenever I see Bernanke feature in the Aussie Mainstream, I know something’s up, based on the road behind us it would be a good indicator that it’s worth a quick look at taking note of the global financial state of affairs whenever his lips move, and they have been moving over the last couple of weeks.
Of course the fact that people like Bernanke or Greenspan before him are revered by the corporate mercenary media is because to do otherwise would be a bit too much reality and so it’s up to the likes of you or I to point out the facts in relation to the global economic system.
The entire thing is a great big ‘Kobayashi Maru’ and unlike the fictional namesake, actually the entire fractional reserve banking system is a giant debt corkscrew from which there is no escape from the debt on the basis that every single one of your local monetary units have to be paid back, plus interest and so theres never enough money in circulation to repay what is already owed requiring the addition of some more money, which requires more debt which you and I have to pay back by giving tens of thousands of dollars (probably, if you are in full time employment, anyway) of your hard earned work to a bunch of Feds who bring in directives that result in more expenditure and/or a direct assault on your living standards by giving more of the same of the above. Of course we are lucky in Australia to have a relatively peaceful nation.
But costs have rocketed and with energy prices continuing to rise the living standards aren’t improving for many who of course been subjected to many new taxes over the last few years and still the national debt increases.

Of course much of this has to do with the fact that as West Australia has been a mighty powerhouse in the national economy thanks to the booming resources sector and I have already gone over that and mentioned that in the long term the supply and demand charts for fairly well everything show that there are times when markets are over supplied and times when supply doesn’t match demand.
In the long term, there always has been a correction from one to the other. All throughout history.
So whilst I am not a property expert I can see that the recent boom in house prices is setting the scene for a big bubble.
The property fans are buoyed with confidence that the current W.A. housing market is set to continue to rise in price, and that may be true if the influx of people to the State in recent times continues.
But worth consideration is a slowdown in China, of resources projects and infrastructure development planned by the big resources companies being shelved recently, and most importantly the supply and demand charts that show that markets can often overreact to the point that the available sale price is below the supply cost and that can be true for housing as well as resources.
I have wondered about whether or not the Chinese boom slowdown has been a bit of propaganda though, since as many others have also noticed that when you look back through recent history we can see that China has usually celebrated change of leadership with a boom in infrastructure spending and from what I have seen of the plans they are still only about half way through projects that they have already decided to go ahead with, so who knows, maybe all those stories about Chinese steelmakers losing money hand over fist, and all those full to capacity stockpiles of raw materials are just stories intended to improve sales contracts for future deliveries of materials, since if they can create an illusion that the boom is over, then presumably the big miners are more likely to settle for a lower price in the future.
No-one seems to know for sure. Some people have pointed out that since China has effectively got up to its neck in the giant global Ponzi scheme it too is heading for a slowdown. Obviously it will happen eventually, it is just a case of how soon.
One of the ways to find out is to look and see whether we have peaked in production and find out what equipment manufacturers to the mining sector are saying, because if they are flat out then we can guess the boom time is still here. If not, then that is a signal that things are slowing down.
At some point the chart will again oscillate into the territory where the market price will drop below the production cost and marginal projects bought out by the big resources companies will add to the downturn.
A lot of those miners who have invested the big bucks that they earned into the property market will cash in some of those properties.
Some of them having come from other States will return and the W.A. housing bubble will be gone.
And when I remember the supply and demand chart also showed that there is a correlation between the extent of the boom and the corresponding collapse. The more prominent the boom was, the more the crash that followed it – regularly.
Of course the housing boom might also go on much longer since there is already a shortage of housing in the metropolitan area and what would I know, it might never happen.
But lets give an example. The latest median house price in the suburb of Tuart Hill is apparently $525,000. In 2004 this was $225,000. http://www.rs.realestate.com.au/cgi-bin/rsearch?a=sp&s=wa&u=tuart%20hill
So, that’s getting on for a 233 percent increase over a 9 year period! Does anyone really expect that will continue for another 9 years?
Elsewhere in the world over the last few years we have seen the footage of riots all over the world and in the case of many that were spawned from rising unemployment levels and poverty as a result of austerity measures that were sold as the solution to the crisis – in fact in all cases the same measures made a bad situation worse.

Over in other global news and the bombardment by the mainstream media of the Ed Snowden story adds weight to the evidence to support the conclusion that he could be a diversion and likely a CIA Operator, as does the fact that Julian Mendax has been helping him, maybe that’s correct maybe it isn’t.
but even if that is the case the breaking of the news of the extent of the NSA super snoopers on the public into the mainstream has still helped to wake people up to the fact that there are undeniable parallels with Hitler’s Nazi Germany and that has to have caused a few more alarm bells to ring.
Of those who have researched it will have listened to testimonies by people like Annie Machon who have been explaining that the international network snoop on each others citizens and then resource share with the information with their overseas counterparts.
The parallels between the NSA and Nazi Germany aren’t just limited to the unfettered ability for secret agencies to track and trace every single movement of anyone of the citizenry they wish for any length of time for any reason without cause
So we should probably consider why, if that were the case. What else is going on that could be bigger than the snooping by the NSA?
Putin dropped in to RT so that’s worth a watch (youtube) and includes his views on surveillance, drones and much more
So perhaps the Obama tour of Africa and the Snowden story have been brought in to divert away from the recent announcement that arms are being supplied by the EU to the rebels, i.e. the terrorists that have been pushed back in Syria.
The reason that Assad has not fallen the way of Gadaffi is probably thanks to assistance from Iran and Russia.
It’s quite hypocrital of the developed nations to use the claim that Assad is a dictator that has been keeping the leadership in the family. Go and see how many American Presidents have been related to European Royalty.
Have a look at the British Monarchy. The Sax Coburg Goethers – ze Germans. So how is that really any different?
As far as Assad goes, I try to forget all the mainstream media propaganda about him and see what he actually says. I have listened to a lot of what he has said and can not find much in the way of evidence supporting the notion that his rule is one of a brutal dictatorship. As for his response to armed terrorists calling themselves freedom fighters is somewhat ironic seeing as they have recently been seen eating Assad’s men’s hearts and barbequeing heads whilst demanding Obama send them some heavy weapons.
It has been reported that the rebels that are being armed up by the E.U./U.S have used chemical weapons, probably sarin whilst everyone in the mainstream has been generally pointing the finger at Assad for it.
Especially when we remind ourselves where things are at over in Washington.

So whilst I would like to believe that Obama has actually been working behind the scenes to prevent an escalation in Syria, none of his actions to date suggest that he is against the odd bombing campaign here and there.
He has definitely drone bombed more innocent people than Bush ever did and it’s still going on.
He still hasn’t closed Guantanamo Bay like he said he would.
Whether its Obama or Cameron or any number of other Federal Government leaders across the developed world, the common theme that most share is a track record of being able to bullshit their way through whilst sounding sincere and having lacked anything like a real job, have only their well connected corporate masters to thank for fast tracking their careers into positions of perceived power, but in actual fact have none. They do what they are told.
Maybe the only peaceful way of sorting out the situation is to give the wanna be dictators across the world some other vision for what they could instead be focused on other than land oil gold and guns which is what a lot of these guys are after – that and a lot more, such as the Banks, the pipelines, the infrastructure, that sort of thing.
That’s probably more than enough for this time.
