7th September 2013

 

As per the usual script, it appears that the warmongers are trying to go for an attack on Syria by the U.S. but most already know that, and the majority are opposed to it.

If team aboma don’t get their way, the chance of them using a false flag attack to get their way, it appears there’s a possibility of a nuke false flag attack on America in order to get the people on board.

Rand Paul John Kerry

This week I have been watching the House Hearings on US Military involvement in Syria on C-Span.

It’s not my favourite pastime having to watch and listen to Chuckie explain with a straight face how they want to increase U.S. support for the opposition in Syria, i.e. the terrorists and have positioned U.S. military assets in to place so that they are ready to go.

And then Bonesman Kerry kept on repeating the baloney about Assad being responsible for the CW attack on 21st August.

They are all so worried about ‘American credibility’ the best thing that could happen would be to hear someone point to the evidence from May of this year that indicated that the ‘opposition’ aka the terrorists used chemical weapons. That would do a lot more for American credibility than BG-109 – ing Syria.

And how many people have tracked back to see evidence of how CW’s came to be in Syria?

http://www.independent.co.uk/news/uk/politics/revealed-uk-government-let-british-company-export-nerve-gas-chemicals-to-syria-8793642.html

Globalresearch.ca again point out the absurdity of the situation

The UN inspectors entered Syria in the first place on the invitation of the government in Damascus. The Syrian government warned the UN for weeks that the anti-government militias were trying to use chemical weapons after they gained control of a chlorine factory east of Aleppo. As a precaution, the Syrian military consolidated all its chemical weapons into a handful of heavily guarded compounds to prevent the anti-government forces from reaching them. Yet, the insurgents launched a chemical weapon attack against the Syrian government’s forces in Khan Al-Assal on March 19, 2013. Turning the truth on its head, the insurgents and their foreign backers, including the US government, would try to blame the Syrian government for the chemical attack, but the UN’s investigator Carla Del Ponte would refute their claims as false in May after extensive work.

 

Concerning the alleged August attack the Obama Administration has been lying and contradicting itself for days. They say that traces of chemical weapons cannot be eliminated, but that the Syrian government destroyed that same evidence that cannot be eradicated. They want an investigation, but say they already have all the answers.

 

The claims that the Syrian government used chemical weapons in the suburb of Ghouta defy logic. Why would the Syrian government unnecessarily use chemical weapons in an area that it controls and shoot itself in the foot by presenting the US and its allies with a pretext to intervene? And of all the days it could unnecessarily use chemical weapons, the Obama administration wants us to believe that the Syrian government picked the day when United Nation inspectors arrived in Damascus.

 

Even the biased and misleading state-run British Broadcasting Corporation admitted that there was something strange about the event. The BBC’s  own “Middle East Editor Jeremy Bowen says many will ask why the [Syrian] government would want to use such weapons at a time when [United Nations] inspectors are in the country and the military has been doing well militarily in the area around Damascus.”

http://www.globalresearch.ca/saudi-arabians-chemical-bandar-behind-the-chemical-attacks-in-syria/5348464

John Kerry has even said even if the repercussions of attacking Syria were as they have been in recent years, that’s a price he is willing to pay. So whilst he rules out boots on the ground, attacking Syria puts American military at risk.

And if they get hit with a counter attack by Assad, by serious measures, presumably he means those ‘useable nukes’ and it is perhaps no coincidence that the number of stories about nukes being moved around in the U.S. have shot up in the last week.. http://www.infowars.com/sen-graham-warns-of-nuke-strike-after-missing-nuke-report/

Meanwhile, Assad who has been fighting Alqeada linked Al Nusra around a largely Christian village is still being blamed for the CW attack.
Let me just say that again so I get it right. Assad has been fighting against Alciada linked terrorists in Syria.

Arent Alciada the baddies?

So Assad has been fighting the terrorists and yet he is the baddie? Of course that’s why they have been using the enemy of my enemy is not my friend line.

The important point is to look at who benefits from the 21st August CW attack.

There are a few contenders there.

I have been fairly well following the Syria situation for probably two years now and so I can probably say I have at least a reasonable knowledge of the situation and the conclusion is that the U.S. should not intervene.

http://www.breitbart.com/Big-Peace/2013/09/05/Syrian-rebels-fight-army-near-Christian-village

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Druze  Kurds Sunnis, Shia, Alawites, Christians, mercenaries, terrorists, you name it there’s a mixture and a half in and around Syria.

How are Tomahawks going to help sort things out?

How are cruise missiles going to improve on the tens of thousands of Syrians who have already died added to the refugees on target to reach 3 million people by the end of the year? How will the situation improve?

It won’t.

The warmongers pushing for a U.S. attack on Syria are either insane or completely misguided. Which is it?

They serious think that they can have a ‘limited war’.

Anyone who reads up on the history of how world wars have previously ignited, more often than not a series of misunderstandings, particularly of the kind that have involved underestimating the response by a nation in response to another.

Look at the series of events that lead to the first world war as an example of how one nation who expected another to respond to a particular situation discovered that the reaction was more than just a bit of an underestimation.

These days of course most of the big events in recent years and decades even, have featured repeated use of ye olde false flag by the cabal otherwise known as the military-big pharma-gangster cartel.

But at least if nothing else it gives us plenty of subject matter..

Webster Tarpley on RT

I would have thought that there would be more than sufficient quantities of impeachable moves by Obama already and it is going to catch up with him at some point.

Perhaps he is trying to stall on Syria but is being coerced into acting on Syria.

Putin meanwhile has been the voice of reason and justice over Syria.

He has stated that whilst on the one hand they are not staunch Assad supporters but is calling for any decision on action against Syria to be under International Law and therefore via a UN Security Council Resolution.

And Putin is not alone http://rt.com/news/g20-against-syria-strike-527/ With leaders from India and China echoing Putin on the need for Security Council resolution before any action is taken.

Australian Federal Election

Posted: September 7, 2013 in Main
Tags: ,

7th September 2013

With the imminent Australian elections, I suppose there are no bonus points for predicting a victory by Tony Abbott..

I predicted Obama would be re-elected but I was wrong about Sarkozy .

Overall the track record of making such predictions is more often than not I have been correct but in the case of the Australian elections, it is all but certain that Abbott will be the next Prime Minister of Australia.

Here’s what Tim Andrews from  www.taxpayers.org.au had to say

The current Federal Government has advanced the greatest assault on individual freedoms and sound economic management we have seen in over three decades.

As you would be well aware, I have frequently criticised Tony Abbot some of his plans, such as PPL and his desire to keep the Renewable Energy Target. I hold grave concerns about his ability to keep some big government influences in check, and his economic plans leave much to be desired.

But any criticism I have of the opposition is dwarfed by the gigantic catastrophe that the Rudd-Gillard-Rudd government has proven to be.

Irrespective of what you think about Tony Abbott, there can be no doubt about one thing: This government has got to go.

Here’s why:

Firstly, the Rudd Government’s decision to throw $80 billion down the toilet with a “stimulus package” that did nothing more than destroy our budget finances, and leave us with a mountain of debt was an act of fiscal vandalism unmatched in recent history.

 


When Kevin came into office promising to be an ‘economic conservative’, we had a budget surplus. In just one year, this became a $27 billion deficit. In two years, it reached a mind-blowing $60 billion. Our national debt is now on track to reach a staggering $300 billion, and we will be  paying $190 million in interest every single week. 


Even The Australian Treasury and the Parliamentary Budget Offices have now admitted that the deficit is structural, unsustainable, and the result of massive over-spending. Yes, as Kevin Rudd keeps saying, it could be worse, but do we really want to keep comparing ourselves to Greece?

And all the while, tax receipts were going up and up and up as Labor announced a whopping forty three tax hikes.


And for what? Tearing down one school hall to replace it with another one, even as the schools faced closure? A concrete playground for $1.8 million? Sheds at 10 times the market value? A vote-buying cash splash of $900 per person that even Treasury admitted boosted consumption by just one dollar? A stimulus that was so useless that Treasury cooked the books to make it look like it was working – and then got  caught out and were forced to withdraw their argument.

And don’t even get me started on the job-killing carbon tax…

But Kevin Rudd’s budget bungling is just the tip of the iceberg.

By dragging our industrial relations system back to the 1960’s, we have had plummeting international competitiveness, small business closures up 48%, and record numbers of crippling strikes across Australia, while working days lost, which had been trending downwards for 15 years, shot up  fivefold. 

At the same time, the number of people without jobs has gone up 222,000 between 2007 and 2013, and the government has resorted to classifying 350,000 people receiving unemployment benefits as “non-jobseekers” so that they won’t show up in the official count.

And it doesn’t stop there.

This government has also seen the most concerted attack on freedom of speech seen in Australia outside the Second World War. They proposed an unprecedented media censorship and licensing regime, wanting to bring in government-sanctioned journalism. They wanted to make it unlawful to ‘offend’ or ‘insult’ someone, and make you “guilty unless proven innocent” with laws that would also  destroy religious liberties, persecute the innocent, and make a mockery of free-thought. Fortunately, these were delayed after lengthy public outcry, but there can be no doubt a re-election of the Rudd Government will make their return inevitable. And who can forget the Government’s plans to secretly record every email you send, every private message on facebook you post, and every tweet you send?

As if all this wasn’t enough, we have also seen one of the greatest attacks on individual freedoms and personal responsibility through the nanny-state gone mad, with hikes in lifestyle taxes, and more and more restrictions on what adults can and can not do. The Australian National Preventative Health Agency receives $40 million a year to do little more than lobby for more restrictions. We have actually reached a point where we’re no longer seriously considering plain packaging for alcohol and food, but are taxes are going to support bringing in food rationing. Really. This is government-sanctioned insanity funded totally by your taxes.

I am, of course, just beginning to list the cascade of failures, bumbling incompetence, and attacks on liberty by the Rudd-Gillard-Rudd government – there is a while library that could be filled if I was to list them all.

Syria Summary

Posted: September 2, 2013 in Main

2nd September 2013

The following summary relates to developments in Syria over the past couple of weeks

Syria Situation

The following article features skull and bonesman John Kerry give his pro warmongering propaganda pushing speech as well as a reminder about the morally deficient Colin Powell that ‘proved’ Iraq had WMD’s back in the day

 http://www.infowars.com/sec-state-kerry-prepares-wmd-pretext-ahead-of-syria-attack/

But if like John Kerry anyone believes the BS story the mainstream media are parroting, then the story goes something along the line that Assad, having allowed the UN inspectors in to investigate, and upon their arrival just decided to start using chemical weapons on the NATO funded opposition forces amongst somewhere between 17 and 29 different factions or separate and distinct groups running out of Syria, (and let’s be honest, some of those different groups have been fighting each other for donkeys years and the question I have for club Obamaronande that are so quick to talk up the fight without having so much as a shred of evidence against Assad even though they are throwing whatever propaganda sticks at him to justify invasion, are these guys really that naïve that they believe that they are better placed to solve the problem than the people who actually live there?

What’s the plan for Syria?

If anyone thinks Syria is like Iraq or Libya, then we also should consider that if Assad has the latest SAM equipment then a no fly zone might not be a good idea for any invading forces.

So that is why the cruise missile option is why that fits with US Naval moves to position cruise missile ships in the region and according to USA Today one of those ships in the region is the USS Barry (not named after Soetoro lol)

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/USS_Barry_%28DDG-52%29

And a glance at that shows that cruise missiles are just one of a multitude of weaponry on board. In the case of the above ship, it holds 90 tomahawks.

Based on the reports from Libya, cruise missiles featured heavily in Libya and so if they use the same approach they may strike any and all chemical weapons facilities in Syria. (and probably a few others that look like they might

Francoise Hollande said France is “ready to punish” those behind the “chemical massacre” in Syria, and said that his government believes Damascus carried out the attack.

William Hague says government ‘clear’ that Assad is behind chemical attack in Syria

David Cameron on Syria: ‘ Chemical weapons indefensible’

http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/uk-23856724

For a quick critique of Cameron’s latest, he said

It was almost 100 years ago that the world came together and said that the use of chemical weapons was morally indefensible.

Agreed, but let’s not forget that Cameron fails to mention the number of times over those years that the UK has used them – even on people in the British Forces. Of course the UK is not alone there, just about all the other morally upon high preachers like Cameron and John Kerry and all the rest of them represent nations who have actually historically documented evidence of their countries using them repeatedly in some cases.

But that’s another story, let’s stick to the baloney spewed forth by Cameron .. notice how he takes twenty seconds to state as absolute fact that Assad was responsible for the chemical weapons attack.

He has all but then confirmed that an attack is going to happen.

Lets hope they don’t.

http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/uk-23856724

However from his speech and others, it seems clear that the decision to fire off a few hundred cruise missiles in to strategic targets will send a message to all warmongers that chemical weapons use will not be tolerated.

That’s why John Kerry said that it didn’t matter who used the chemical weapons, the fact that they were used has given the morally superior the green light to proceed.

Dear warmongers please reconsider and do not attack Syria.

Russian Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov has identified that there is a coordinated effort to derail talks but these guys have got to sit around the camp fire for a chin wag before they go and get the allies into another quagmire kobayashi maru situation.

There will undoubtedly be blow back from any military action against Syria as there is a great potential for one or more of Syrias allies to retaliate and the most likely candidate for that might be one of the US allies in the region but also because to engage in any military conflict is to approve of the mass murder of the unarmed people who are just trying to earn their keep.

Always in military conflict out of every ten people killed in war, 9 are civilians.

Whilst the warmongers rattle off their finger pointing accusations at Assad and say he has to prove it wasn’t him and say on the one hand they want to give a fierce response, on the other they claim that they wont be putting boots on the ground.

So what happens if after they have finished unloading hundreds of tomahawks at their strategic targets that there is a military retaliation?

What happens then?

What happens if one of those missile cruisers gets torpedoed by one of those Iranian rocket propelled torpedoes that can break 300 klicks in the water in response to a US lead attack on Syria?

All those scenarios would no doubt be possible in the event that a military strike on Syria takes place

Any actions that take place must have Security Council resolution to do so but of course they have already justified in their own minds that they don’t have to if they don’t want to.

This is once again madness in motion unfolding before my eyes and I suppose on the plus side if we all think back to 2003 and today and see how many people there are out there that have stopped buying the embedded propaganda brought to us by the corporate news compared to 2003

And as the latest crisis unfolds more and more talking puppets keep appearing with their fine words of wisdom.

John Boehner has written a letter to the US commander in chief

http://www.speaker.gov/press-release/boehner-seeks-answers-president-obama-syria

Let’s check it out

Dear Mr. President:

I deeply respect your role as our country’s commander-in-chief, and I am mindful that Syria is one of the few places where the immediate national security interests of the United States so visibly converge with broader U.S. security interests and objectives.

[translation by me: Dear Obama, you’re the boss and Syria is in the plan as outlined by Wesley Clark back in 2007 which serves the broader geopolitical agenda ]

Our nation’s response to the deterioration and atrocities in Syria has implications not just in Syria, but also for America’s credibility across the globe, especially in places like Iran. 

[If we don’t show how tough we are Iran might think we are chicken]

Even as the United States grapples with the alarming scale of the human suffering [which is guaranteed to increase should military strikes go ahead], we are immediately confronted with contemplating the potential scenarios our response might trigger or accelerate. These considerations include the Assad regime potentially losing command and control of its stock of chemical weapons or terrorist organizations – especially those tied to al Qaeda – gaining greater control of and maintaining territory.  How the United States responds also has a significant impact on the security and stability of U.S. allies in the region[ who will be at increased risk of being attacked should military action go ahead], which are struggling with the large exodus of Syrian refugees and the growing spillover of violence feeding off of ethnic and religious tensions.  The House of Representatives takes these interests and potential consequences seriously in weighing any potential U.S. and international response in Syria.

[Translation: If we hit Syria, the repercussions may include terrorists gaining control of chemical weapons – hang on isn’t the idea reducing the threat of terrorists using such weapons?]

Since March of 2011, your policy has been to call for a stop to the violence in Syria and to advocate for a political transition to a more democratic form of government.  On August 18, 2012, you called for President Assad’s resignation, adding his removal as part of the official policy of the United States.   In addition, it has been the objective of the United States to prevent the use or transfer of chemical weapons.  I support these policies and publically agreed with you when you established your red line regarding the use or transfer of chemical weapons last August.

 

Now, having again determined your red line has been crossed, should a decisive response involve the use of the United States military, it is essential that you provide a clear, unambiguous explanation of how military action – which is a means, not a policy – will secure U.S. objectives and how it fits into your overall policy.  I respectfully request that you, as our country’s commander-in-chief, personally make the case to the American people and Congress for how potential military action will secure American national security interests, preserve America’s credibility, deter the future use of chemical weapons, and, critically, be a part of our broader policy and strategy. In addition, it is essential you address on what basis any use of force would be legally justified and how the justification comports with the exclusive authority of Congressional authorization under Article I of the Constitution.

Russia and China have apparently scuttled plans to get a UN resolution through [they did not walk out of the UN as claimed by a few] but that doesn’t appear to be a problem for the war mongers that will shrug their shoulders and say ‘we tried’ knowing full well that was going to happen

http://www.latimes.com/world/worldnow/la-fg-wn-syria-united-nations-resolution-20130828,0,618597.story

It doesn’t take much to whip the mainstream media warmongers into a frenzy

Cameron failed to gain support in the UK Parliament, and since this is the first time that a war vote has failed since 1782 it is significant.

http://www.reuters.com/article/2013/08/30/us-syria-crisis-britain-idUSBRE97R1BD20130830

Whilst Cameron didn’t get the votes, it was only by a slim margin but no doubt thanks to people speaking out about the absurdity of taking military action against Syria.

The question now is will the U.S. go it alone on Syria?

It is possible.

http://www.politico.com/politico44/2013/08/white-house-peeved-at-pentagon-leaks-171520.html

Whatever they decide it would be nice if Washington could get its story straight and stick with it.

For the past two years they have been calling for Assad to walk away, step down, move away and yet this week we have seen multiple mouthpieces come out with ridiculous statements how they want to attack Syria but now it’s not about regime change. LOL [wankers]

http://www.politico.com/politico44/2013/08/syria-response-not-about-regime-change-171306.html?ml=bp

Seriously if these people think that they will be able have a ‘limited’ targeted war by striking specific military targets only, they are crazier or more misguided than one could possibly imagine.

They need to have a closer look at the size of some of the forces in the region.

I remember  reading some reports that Russia for instance had recently put 160000 troops on show

http://intellihub.com/2013/07/17/russia-amasses-full-combat-readiness-strategic-bombers/

http://www.dailymail.co.uk/news/article-2366037/Vladimir-Putin-oversees-largest-display-Russias-military-Cold-War-using-160-000-troops-5-000-tanks-dozens-ships-send-message-strength-world.html

Putin has asked for details of evidence that Assad was responsible for the chemical weapons attack, as have I asked our own Prime Minister. Putin has also remarked that the claims that Assad used chemical weapons as “utter nonsense” http://www.washingtonpost.com/world/europe/russia-sharply-steps-up-criticism-of-us-over-syria/2013/08/31/532c48ea-1238-11e3-a2b3-5e107edf9897_print.html

The fact that so many people have learned from the mistakes of previous wars based on dodgy intel has derailed the globalists plans but it remains to be seen whether Obama will act alone or not.

It is thanks to the efforts of all outside the corporate news that have talked sense about Syria and no doubt have helped to hold back the warmongers from doing their thing as a result of speaking out against the proposed madness.

One can only wonder at the globalist warmongers that seek to attack Syria, using the fake claim that they know it must have been Assad because the opposition don’t have those kind of weapons, and they know it is a fake claim because they can look back and see evidence of rebel forces having been caught with C.W.’s in May this year. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=0Yi5YFKXHPU and it just so happens to be Sarin gas that was used in the most recent attacks blamed on Assad.

The excuses they are using include claiming that an attack on Syria is essential to ‘show off’ to Iran as a deterrent to persuade them not to further their non-existent nuclear weapons program.

It makes total sense – assuming that they are a bunch of raving lunatics.

http://www.nytimes.com/roomfordebate/2013/08/26/is-an-attack-on-syria-justified/assad-has-called-obamas-bluff

‘America’s credibility in the region — which is overwhelmingly built on Washington’s willingness to use force — will be zero unless Obama militarily intercedes now to knock down the Assad regime. Firing cruise missiles or even more punishing strikes from fighter-bombers against Syria’s chemical-weapons depots and plants will be as effective in countering Assad’s lethal calculations, and his capacity to deploy further weapons of mass destruction, as was President Bill Clinton’s cruise-missile barrage against Osama bin Laden after the embassy bombings in Africa in 1998.

If the president intends to maintain American influence, which means maintaining a credible threat to go to war to stop Iran’s quest for nuclear weapons, then Washington’s response to Assad’s challenge must be devastating. The entire regime must be targeted: elite military units, aircraft, armor and artillery; all weapons-depots; the myriad organizations of the secret police; the ruling elite’s residences; and other critical Alawite infrastructure.’

Obama faces a week or so trying to get Congressional approval to attack. http://online.wsj.com/article/SB10001424127887323932604579048821158553250.html?mod=WSJ_hpp_LEFTTopStories

The Guardian article highlights the strategic importance of Syria via its pipelines http://www.theguardian.com/environment/earth-insight/2013/aug/30/syria-chemical-attack-war-intervention-oil-gas-energy-pipelines

The pipelines such as the so called Arab gas pipeline run through Homs and Damascus http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/File:Arab_Gas_Pipeline.svg

The strategic importance of the physical location of Syria is also a reason it has been targeted and of course the non approved central bank.

Add the above to the fact that Syria ranks at around 32 in the top oil producing nations and produces other resources such as steel are just some of the reasons that an attack on Syria is probably still on the cards for Commander Obama..

Syria update

Posted: August 26, 2013 in Uncategorized

25th August 2013

While the mainstream re-runs the Iraq WMD show for Syria over the recent chemical weapons attacks, and decides to devote the headlines instead to sports scandals, just reminds me that they do a shithouse job of reporting the news, although of course a couple of months ago a few of the msm outlets reported on news stories regarding chemical weapons use by the opposition forces in Syria, including the Russian evidence that pointed the finger at the rebels but they seem to have forgotten it in the latest reports that are aimed squarely at Assad’s forces.

The Syrian Military have denied using chemical weapons but knowing what we know about how the warmongers go about their business we can deduce that it was more than likely conducted by the Webster Tarpley dubbed ‘NATO death squads’ that have timed the attack to coincide with the arrival of the U.N. team there.

What are the chances?

http://www.davidicke.com/headlines/89460-hundreds-dead-in-syrian-chemical-attack-as-even-impartial-experts-allege-false-flag

 

Government surveillance is a “critical component to counterterrorism.” According to captain Obama

Of course it is getting a bit confusing identifying which ones are the terrorists, because according to the mainstream nonsense, there is Alqeada the bad terrorists and the ones that are being backed by the U.S. such as the following story about U.S. backed rebels in Syria being affiliated with Alciada

http://www.mcclatchydc.com/2013/08/06/198675/al-qaida-groups-lead-syrian-rebels.html#.UgJFNG0mKdw

And the latest video clip doing the rounds on the internet features some of those western backed rebels apparently executing two teenage boys by machine gun.

Their crime was allegedly their support of Assad.

These are terrorists… Being backed by the west..Again.

It looks like I called it correctly again this time over Egypt but it didn’t stop it turning to crap.

Hopefully the increasing transparency of what is really going on and where it is all heading will help wake up a few more zombies, but with the propaganda machine in full force it might take a while longer.

We have known that Syria has been in the crosshairs for years just as Libya was and just how Iran is after Syria.

The mainstream media is as guilty as the warmongers that have engineered the destabilisation of the middle east for crimes against humanity for the fiction that they continue to spew..

http://www.davidicke.com/headlines/81486-david-icke-syriathe-truth-viewer-discretion-advised-

http://www.youtube.com/watch?feature=player_embedded&v=fXezs1YY01I

http://www.globalresearch.ca/toxic-deaths-in-syria-who-has-the-burden-of-proof/5346723

James Corbett also flagged the suspect timing of the UN crew turning up just 2 days before the latest chemical weapons attack, and points out the lunacy of the prospect that Assad would have used chemical weapons..

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=bSAMT5Pe15k

http://www.infowars.com/experts-syria-chemical-weapons-attack-suspicious

It is always useful to check out what the globalists are saying at times like this to get an indication of what is likely to happen next.

According to Richard Haas at the Council on Foreign Relations, two possible options for the USA next would be providing more hardware to the opposition (terrorists) although with up to 17 different ‘rebel’ groups it remains unclear as to exactly which ‘rebels’ he is talking about, and the other option he has suggested includes launching  cruise missiles at targets in Syria. Either move is going to do nothing to restore peace in Syria.

http://www.cfr.org/syria/america-must-respond-atrocities-syria/p31268

Aussie PM Kevin Rudd gave a press conference this morning (Sunday) to talk about Syria then used the opportunity to push his re-election campaign which has thus far consisted of attacking Tony Abbott.

I have been watching the unfolding calamity of the situation in Syria for at least a couple of years now and in conclusion all I can say is it is another prime example of how the warmongers roll.

The unfolding events in Syria are also a good example of how the propaganda machine rolls. The mainstream media across the western world now has featured a multitude of leaders who have all but implicated Assad before the facts are known.

Eg here

http://blogs.cfr.org/danin/2013/08/22/middle-east-matters-this-week-alleged-syrian-chemical-weapons-use-mubarak-leaves-prison-in-egypt/

And the following which features a more telling picture

http://www.davidicke.com/headlines/89674-syria-cameron-and-obama-threaten-serious-response-as-their-masters-threaten-serious-response-if-these-puppets-dont-sell-a-serious-response-to-the-public-very-soon

In all probability NATO death squads have flooded in to Syria across the border from Turkey largely and engaged in atrocities which are to be blamed on Assad as a pretext to turn the place to rubble with tomahawks and more if necessary.

Here is the news

5th August 2013

Welcome to another collection of whatever I think is worth sharing.

Plugging the gaps left by the corporate media is a time consuming hobby simply because the whole planet is just about being bombarded 24/7/365 with non-stop flat out baloney which often distracts from the matters of real significance and events that you would think would be of interest to more people would get a better show, but apparently not.

So the following are some of the news stories that have appeared since the last post that I think are worth looking at.

The most recent story is the one involving the closure of all those American Embassies due to ‘terrorist chatter’ but really when you look and see that some of them are places like Mauritius – and something straight away sounds suss.

Give me a break. When was the last time you heard of AlCIAduh working on Mauritius? Well, I could be wrong of course, I can pretend for a moment that Alqeada isnt a fictional outfit and hasnt been funded/armed/trained by the U.S. at any time and imagine that it is possible that they could have received a threat about one or more of the U.S. Embassies and perhaps it would be taking a cautious approach from a risk management perspective.

Especially when one considers what happened in Benghazi.

The story also helps to reinforce the message that U.S Embassies, and Ambassadors are well looked after by Washington, protected, even.

Of course any research on the subject of Benghazi shows more than a horror story involving an Ambassador who screamed for help for hours on end whilst those criminals ignored his plea for help. As a result he was tortured to death by mad men.

The closure serves as a distraction from all the recent attention on team Obama.

Assuming the possibility that the cover story to close the Embassies is in order to secure any or all data in relation to what went on in Benghazi

If that were the case, presumably we may see a pattern in that the closed Embassies would likely be the ones that were geographically close to Libya. Closing up in Mauritius suddenly would make more sense if that were the real motivation.

It doesnt need Einstein to work out that with over 800 bases in over 130 nations, the American war machine is as unsustainable as anything could possibly be, and yet when they arent bombing for real, they are always off practicing..

I note that the training bombs that landed in the marine park area off the Capricorn Coast a couple of weeks ago failed to make the news locally but was reported on by the Daily Mail and natural news but was low key in the Aussie media.

Apparently 4 x 500 lb non live training bombs were dropped in the marine park there after the original plan which was to drop them on Townshend island, failed to go ahead because at the last minute the target area was not clear, so the crew didn’t have enough fuel to get back to wherever they took off from.

It seems strange to me. Sure some civvies may have wandered into the training zone but ya would think that they might have thought about checking that before giving the green light.

First of all it appears that the training bombs were on board harrier jets that clearly only had barely enough fuel to complete the training exercise.

Secondly why use harrier jets for a training mission involving bombing?

What scenario were they playing because I doubt the harrier would be the first choice if deployment of 500lb bombs were required.

How was it the crew didn’t have enough fuel? What was the purpose of the training exercise? Why did they choose an area of Marine Park to drop the bombs – so what if they were ‘only’ training bombs, it is still a Marine Park !

Let us not pretend that the possibility couldn’t exist that it could have been a cover for something altogether different even if I am wrong there’s nothing wrong with considering the possibilities.

 I looked it up on the map to see if there were any clues in the physical location of Townshend island.

Strangely enough it’s right on the tropic of Capricorn line. That’s probably just a coincidence, right? J

Here in Australia the Federal Government has come up with another way of gouging more cash via a Bank levy and increasing taxes on cigarettes.

http://www.abc.net.au/news/2013-08-01/government-sets-new-bank-bailout-levy/4859732

In the case of the Bank Levy, no doubt it is yet another in a  long line of excuses for additional ways of grabbing cash from the public in a rather sad attempt to plug a widening fiscal hole; with the announcement that the budget this year in Australia is actually going to blow out by about 30 billion dollars, which is somewhat more than a slight change from the surplus that the last Federal Treasurer promised there would be “come hell or high water..” lol..

http://au.news.yahoo.com/thewest/a/-/newshome/18304877/federal-budget-deficit-hits-30b/

In the case of the extra revenues projected from upping taxes on ciggies, the jokers in Canberra on the one hand claim it is to help encourage people to stop smoking, whilst on the other hand they say will bring in about $5.6 billion dollars. How can it possibly do both?

More likely is of course it is just another in the never ending long list of goods and services to be priced in an upwardly direction disproportionally to the average punter’s wages.

And before I change subject in relation to the fiscally wreckless team Rudd-Gillard-Rudd mkII

They haven’t finished with the outright thievery of Superannuation accounts either. Not content to just go after Super funds that have up to 2 thousand dollars sitting there, team Rudd is now going after all inactive accounts that have up to 6,000 dollars.

Excuse me but that money belongs to the people and to take it is theft. At the very least, they should have the decency to at least try to help notify the people who own that money before just snatching it.

Meanwhile the Federal Budget update is more unemployment and less revenue…

the latest from team KRudd

Over at war incorporated the War Monger of the month award goes to the man who said

“If nothing changes in Iran, come September, October, I will present a resolution that will authorize the use of military force to prevent Iran from developing a nuclear bomb.. the only way to convince Iran to halt their nuclear program is to make it clear that we will take it out.” U.S. Senator Lindsey Graham

 How very heroic of you Senator.

Of course it isn’t really heroic at all, since there is zero chance that when he says we includes himself.

One can only wonder how much he’d be rattling his sabre if he personally would be sent out to Iran to carry out his bold plan in the event that he did manage to get a resolution through to do such a thing.

It’s always the same. Those that make the decision to send men and women off to faraway lands to fight don’t actually get to go and fight. And so they have no idea or comprehension of the results of their decisions to engage in war.

Tough guys like the good Senator and anyone else that wants to take the ‘brave’ decision to pull the trigger on Iran, can lead the way personally.

Away ye go!

At least these days such vast numbers of people are aware enough in regards to the BS the military industrial complex comes up with, that has to help drive change, well we hope that is the case.

I am concerned that the Iran BS propaganda that has long been talked about by just about everyone is still rolling along at full steam ahead.

For what amounts to years now the obvious parallels between the fabricated evidence presented as fact by the global corporate news, of Saddam Hussein’s WMD’s in Iraq and today’s the nuke threat from Iran.

No actual evidence just the beefed up version of events.

Anyway my concern is that despite having provided conclusive evidence that deception was used to draw the military in from the USA the UK and Australia and yet this fact isn’t even up for discussion by any msm outlet to the extent that is warranted.

There were no WMD’s in Iraq because the UN teams had confiscated them years before. But the inspectors provided the precise coordinates to take out all of Iraq’s defences at the same time.

Real WMDs were used; large conventional ordnance in addition to  depleted uranium tipped (definitely) and even more ‘advanced’ weaponry (probably) that killed probably more than a million Iraqi people, and those WMDs were used by the liberating forces of the coalition of the willing.

John Pilger emphatically highlighted the problems with the reporting in the lead up to the war in Iraq and the reporters he spoke to even admitted that they stuffed up by not giving airtime to anyone unless they supported the WMD fiction and then they could have all the airtime.

So here we are again and this time it’s the Iranian nuke threat and the corporate media haven’t learned a thing from their mistakes.

Of course in the big scheme of things the corporate big guns are buddies with their friends over at military industrial incorporated and so the msm is largely constrained.

That leaves the alternative media. Out of that the big players have no doubt also placed deliberate dead ends and alleyways for us to be diverted into, deliberate misinformation to distract from the stories that the global cartel don’t want attention on.

On top of that there is the endless stream of reality tv shows, talkshows, sportshows, comedy shows and all the rest of it that keeps everyone else distracted with.

And we do get distracted. Even those who know what the game is get distracted with the various forms of distraction.

 C’,mon how many truthers do you know who still watch movies and the occasional game/motorsport/video game or two from time to time?

Ok I admit it I do too but when it comes to watching movies or television fiction I am at least on the lookout for the propaganda. And I usually find it on some level.

A recent example was the ‘Under the Dome’ Series.

Coincidentally every depiction of guns in that show that I have seen so far has featured a negative message along with it.

Of course some would argue that is always going to happen because ‘guns kill people

However lets not forget the fact that the television show was produced in the USA where gun rights  have been targeted by Washington.

As an example of a positive use of a gun, it could be in an instance where a law abiding citizen pulls out their gun in self defence against a would be attacker. The trigger needn’t be pulled – the very presence of one would surely be enough to put any would be assailant in a position where they would have to rethink their position.

And just on that fact, let’s get a reminder about the reality of an armed citizenry from Chuck Baldwin

Gun Ownership Mandatory In Kennesaw, Georgia

Crime Rate Plummets

 

by Chuck Baldwin

 

The New American magazine reminds us that March 25th marked the 16th anniversary of Kennesaw, Georgia’s ordinance requiring heads of households (with certain exceptions) to keep at least one firearm in their homes.

 

The city’s population grew from around 5,000 in 1980 to 13,000 by 1996 (latest available estimate). Yet there have been only three murders: two with knives (1984 and 1987) and one with a firearm (1997). After the law went into effect in 1982, crime against persons plummeted 74 percent compared to 1981, and fell another 45 percent in 1983 compared to 1982.

 

And it has stayed impressively low. In addition to nearly non-existent homicide (murders have averaged a mere 0.19 per year), the annual number of armed robberies, residential burglaries, commercial burglaries, and rapes have averaged, respectively, 1.69, 31.63, 19.75, and 2.00 through 1998.

 

With all the attention that has been heaped upon the lawful possession of firearms lately, you would think that a city that requires gun ownership would be the center of a media feeding frenzy. It isn’t. The fact is I can’t remember a major media outlet even mentioning Kennesaw. Can you?

 

The reason is obvious. Kennesaw proves that the presence of firearms actually improves safety and security. This is not the message that the media want us to hear. They want us to believe that guns are evil and are the cause of violence.

 

The facts tell a different story. What is even more interesting about Kennesaw is that the city’s crime rate decreased with the simple knowledge that the entire community was armed. The bad guys didn’t force the residents to prove it. Just knowing that residents were armed prompted them to move on to easier targets. Most criminals don’t have a death wish.

 

There have been two occasions in my own family when the presence of a handgun averted potential disaster. In both instances the gun was never aimed at a person and no shot was fired.

Of course here in Australia gun ownership laws changed following the Port Arthur Massacre and millions of guns were handed in.

And whatever one believes happened in Port Arthur is besides the point – innocent unarmed people died.

If every citizen had a legal sidearm (having been trained to use it safely of course) on that day in Tasmania back then like they did in Kennesaw, we can reasonably assume that the massacre would not have taken place because it would be over as soon as it had started.

And as always happens when gun laws are enacted to restrict the law abiding citizens from owning guns, the only ones left with them are the criminals who don’t follow the rules anyway.

So I believe that the rise in gun related crimes in Australia (particularly in NSW according to the MSM) are as a result of more firearms restrictions. And so the same approach is then used in having another ‘crackdown’ on them once again which will probably result in further restrictions and still the criminals who choose to use illegal firearms will probably continue to do so, only we can also reasonably deduce that if that approach to date has produced more gun related crime, then further use of the same strategy is probably going to produce more of the same.

Locally in West Aus a new gun amnesty has just been declared for all unlicensed guns to be handed in www.perthnow.com.au%2fnews%2fwestern-australia%2fthree-months-to-hand-in-unlicensed-guns%2fstory-fnhocxo3-1226689542756

Once again all the criminals will keep theirs whilst the rest of the law abiding folk will hand theirs in. The question I have is

Will this strategy deter those criminals who have guns from using them or will it embolden them?

Issues under discussion in the Australian Federal Parliament offer little in the way of anything different than what has gone before.

Take for example the Boat people.

On one hand are those that think that the boats should be turned around, towed or torpedoed out of the water to stop the ‘illegal people’ (lol) that arrive by boat.

Of course on the other hand there are those who cringe at such suggestions and point out that wherever people have originated from (planet earth, probably) then our humanitarian obligations must be factored in to the equation.

Some say Australia is a fragile ecosystem straining under the weight of a burgeoning population and doesn’t have enough water to support more people.

Others point out that a small fraction of the land is actually inhabited and say that there is plenty of room here for everyone because technology can solve all.

So what is the answer?

We can build a super city in the middle of Australia to accommodate 200 million people.

Powered by solar, water provided by atmospheric water  generators, these people will need to eat but that can be solved with aquaponics, aquaculture, that sort of thing.

In return, the excess water production can be used to help green the Aussie desert systems. It’s a win – win.

Of course these days any such development would be a tourist destination as well, providing further economic growth opportunities for the new super city, on top of the demand for services and goods.

Anyway the point is we need to look for outside the box solutions because the alternative is more of the same and clearly that is unacceptable to a large number of people.

We humans are an innovative bunch and whether it’s the boat issue or anything else there is inevitably a solution we just have to find it..

14th July 2013

 

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.

Bill Shorten

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.

http://www.perthnow.com.au/news/world/brekkie-wrap-killer-inspired-by-breaking-bad-kevin-rudd-criticised-in-uk-parliament/story-fnhrvhol-1226671151735

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.

Here in Perth the City has become the most expensive place to live in the Southern hemisphere http://www.abc.net.au/news/2013-07-11/pricey-perth/4814248

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.

Max Keiser : Up the creek with no paddle youtube E458 featuring Thames Water

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

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=33oIF-ggK5U

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.

http://www.globalresearch.ca/russian-advanced-weapons-for-syria-unrevealed-secrets-of-vladimir-putins-recent-visit-to-london/5339559

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.

Unfettered Snooping: Check

Indefinitie Detentions: Check

Songs about leader sung in schools: Check

Unaccounted Funding to secret agencies: Check

Detention Camps: Check

Unlimited self -proclaimed power: Check

Ray Bans: Check

All that’s missing is the ability to decide to go to war without asking for permission. Oh wait, no you can check that too. No all that’s missing is the military uniform and medals.

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.

cheers

It has been probably a month since I last posted anything, although of course it doesn’t really matter since so many things previously mentioned have happened over the last month so I will start off by sharing some thoughts.

In my last post, which was immediately after the Boston Bombing I and many others concluded that there was the possibility that if the main theme of that terrorist attack was of domestic extremists of the Islamic variety that there was a strong possibility of a repeat somewhere else in the near future, and less than two weeks later..

The storyline was the same when Lee Rigby was murdered in Woolwich more recently i.e. Islamic domestic extremists that caused it.

And take a look at the recent offerings by the mainstream media lately, giving lots of airtime to radical extremists.

I also concluded that the possibility was that the purpose of the msm pushing the main theme was to soften the public up in preparation of furthering pursuit of Syria which looks like another quagmire that NATO backed forces have stepped into.

I have said it before that it is just a bit ironic that once again the NATO gang are supporting ALCIADUH against the Assad regime. http://www.globalresearch.ca/the-forbidden-truth-the-u-s-is-channelling-chemical-weapons-to-al-qaeda-in-syria-obama-is-a-liar-and-a-terrorist/5339004

I also previously mentioned the possibility that the Syrian conflict was actually more of a proxy war with Iran and on a broader scale even http://www.bloomberg.com/news/2013-06-14/assad-prepares-offensive-as-obama-promises-rebels-arms.html

They are using that old Iraq play book to justify further intervention in Syria under the ‘wmd’ banner.

All previously predicted..

Australian Economy

More locally here in West Aussieland, the Prime Minister was here and spent an evening with Ben Elton.

The mainstream media have spent the day reporting on local so called shockjock Howard Sattler on the local radio station who got sacked for asking the PM whether her partner was gay or not

He could have surely have better spent the time asking about something a bit more of relevance like for example the multi billion dollar blow out on the budget for example.

 But no mr controversial ‘shock jock’ used up the valuable airtime to ask the PM about her partner. Great work Howard – lol.

It amazes me that no one in Canberra seems capable of saying ‘we got it wrong’ but then again perhaps they are having too much fun blowing billions around, giving assistance wherever they feel like and forget the long track record of saying precisely what is 180 degrees to the south of what was promised.

From Julia “there will be no carbon tax” Gillard to the best Treasurer in the world, Wayne “surplus come hell or high water” Swan have just about done their credibility with the Aussie public as far as I can see from talking to people about the current state of affairs, and all the signs are in recent polling that on the current course, Labour will be voted out in the next election  in what will possibly be the most resounding loss in Australian history – surely team Gillard has worked that out, yet still they are clinging on at the helm, continuing on the same course, full steam ahead..

Whilst any budgeting forecast is an estimate and can be whacked out of kilter by the unexpected and a predicted small surplus could overrun into a small deficit, but in the case of Canberra, a surplus that was absolutely guaranteed “come hell or high water” has turned into a massive deficit of close to twenty thousand million dollars for the year.

Some people mistake that figure for the total debt level http://www.australiandebtclock.com.au/

I predicted four years ago we were on track for a 300 billion dollar debt level by this year. I was wrong. Australia’s total debt is closer to 400 billion dollars and rising.

So after 6 budget announcements and countless failed promises we are expected to believe the best Treasurer in the world when he says that the new budget will bring us to a surplus within a few years. Sure, Wayne, we believe you.

Whilst team Gillard keeps waffling on with catch phrases like ‘jobs and growth’ they have been as effective as an ashtray on a motorbike and are economically wrecking the nation.

2012-13                $19.4 billion deficit

2013-14                $18.0 billion deficit

2014-15                $10.9 billion deficit

So what pearls does the Treasurer have to say about the fact we are on track to blow another 50 + billion dollars over the next three years that we don’t have?

“You can’t say because we’re in deficit now, although we’re coming back into surplus, that the economy is not in good nick,”

http://au.news.yahoo.com/thewest/a/-/national/17152022/swan-says-economy-in-good-nick/

Now imagine if that were you or I.

After overspending royally one year you decide to keep going at the same rate for another few years and expect that by some miracle things will sort themselves out down the road.

From what I can see, the pace of Australian debt is starting to race away. Continued spending by Canberra has seen countless payments to various branches of the United Nations and friends so that should be the first to go when it comes to preventing the national debt from getting completely out of control.

It has been Federal policies that have economically choked the economy, including in just the last year are $60 Billion dollars of resource projects shelved by mining companies, the announcement that Ford in Australia is closing down soon and just look at your electricity prices.

Of course let us not forget that cash has become so valuable that Canberra just decides to take from people’s superannuation, and even Bank accounts. There’s another word for that.

Of course in Australia we are lucky enough that we have got the world’s best Treasurer, Mr “stimulus will continue” Wayne Swan.

Luckily, we have those $900 cheques and all those school halls that were built to thankfully save us from any economic troubles. Lol.
