The most publicly visible thing activists do. Protests, rallies and direct action to raise awareness and oppose the things we object to.

Recycled Food Network

The Recycled Food Network has been operating every night of the week since July , providing leftover cafe food to the homeless.  It was a spin-off from the Occupy Melbourne Free Kitchen, which has been running on Sundays (previously Tuesday nights) for about a year now , inspired by the Occupy Sydney Homeless Initiative.. Other Occupy Melbourne initiatives were the Free Shop (started in October 2012, at the OM one year anniversary), later renamed the Friday Free Shop which continues to run, and the Bentleigh Free Shop which ran during 2013

The Free Kitchen and Free Shop catered for everybody, not just the homeless, but the same principles apply : non-religious and in the spirit of brotherhood rather than charity.

Free

The Age ran an article today saying that the Recycled Food Network was completely  unrelated to the Occupy Movement, which is not exactly true, as the RFN is even converging with the OM Free Kitchen on Sunday afternoons and sharing the same equipment. Just setting the record straight here, as all the above initiatives are about the only constructive things that came out of OM and deserve recognition as such.

Net Neutrality debate: prevent internet ransom

The internet

The internet

In the USA there is an on going debate about net neutrality which is a complex topic.

Basically the issue is large communications infrastructure providers are attempting to ransom content delivery companies for speed (bandwidth) or priority access to their own customers.

This is relevant for the world as many major internet services are hosted in the USA and reliant on their network policies and speeds.

Vi Hart ( who normally explains mathematical concepts ) gives a really good explanation of the net neutrality issue.

* Netflicks is an online movie service obviously reliant on good internet speeds.

Sockpuppet War On Facebook (Again)

;Anoun E Moose maybe we ought to take this opportunity to compile a list of all the .net sockpuppets that we know of and do a bit of a purge of our friends lists if we have any of them left. good way to stop them from doxxing us. i know a few of them: grumpie katter, end nine-eleven, web bridge, anders tucker, simon dicko, aqua ruis. all that come to mind at the present, anyone know some other ones they use?

Moo Kau yup

“Anoun E Moose?” and “Moo Kau”, wow, they so sound like actual real names! These two sockpuppets also use these pseudonyms in real life, as they do not have the guts to reveal their legal names to other activists, most likely because they have something to hide, yet they are quite happy to attack others for wanting to be anonymous online and have done so repeatedly. If nothing else, the hypocrisy of this is astounding

“Purge of our friends list if we have any of them left”  Probably not many real friends but mostly sockpuppets.

Anybody worked out who Crazy Cat is yet?

Local socialist denies being a socialist

Right from Day one of Occupy Melbourne there were ‘powerheads’  (i.e. control freaks) lurking around looking to gain control.

Some were overt and obvious, some were covert and used proxies to do their dirty work.

Here is what we believe was one of them, perhaps giving away too much of the game plan.

Isn’t it odd that a well known local socialist denies being a socialist basically as soon as he gets to Occupy Melbourne.

Did he quit socialism? Is he now a traitor to all the ‘comrades’? Does he have to give back the toaster oven?

What else is he trying to hide?

 

Journalism is printing what someone else does not want printed: everything else is public relations.”

George Orwell

 

I wonder if he will ever return Occupy Melbourne’s 8000 W petrol generator that went missing from trade hall where he lives and works?

New Jersey police caught on camera assaulting citizen

Over six months ago this story emerged but despite the whole’ hands up don’t shot’ theme clearly displays here very little in the media frenzy. Police caught out by their own cameras. Its either the police are too stupid to remember this or the footage get ‘lost’ or redacted when its looking too bad for the cops.

Well this footage didn’t get’ lost’, and ultimately exonerated the citizen, police clearly are in deep trouble now. Occasionally in the internal squabbles behind the scenes in the police/courts/lawyer matrix, someone has an axe to grind and  they throw one of their own to the dogs.

http://7online.com/archive/9440401/

Special reminder to police: video cameras are commonplace now days (built into most mobile phones) and people have a habit of filming controversial events and then uploading them for all to see. You can’t win the court case if you lost the media war.

Video evidence is almost undeniable in court.

I wonder how long it will  be before our local Victoria police are again caught on camera assaulting the public for no good reason.

Prevent the political sacrifice of a victim of crime

This man received serious head injuries as a result of being assaulted by a wanted criminal attempting to steal a hand gun.

Don’t let cognitive dissonance cloud your thinking

Don’t let the Marxist and thugs win the media war or allow the political sacrifice of a man trying to save his own life.

https://www.gofundme.com/OfficerWilsonFundraiser

Here at occupy we saw real heavy handed unprovoked use of force by police. We were beaten, robbed, harassed and slandered. When did we resort to looting or violent assaults on the public, never. We know what real injustice looks like and we know a Marxist media hijack when we see one. The tactics are always the same. Ignore and/or suppress facts, manipulate opinion, make illogical, emotionally laden arguments, ad-hominem attacks on opponents and even on victims of serious crimes making a formal complaint.

Officer Wilson will possibly be partly blind in one eye for life, his opponents have always been willingly ‘one eyed’ for some time.

 

Pants up, Don’t loot.

 

 

Clive Palmer apologises to Chinese mongrels

 $orry…

 

1378607826568 redux

 

Clive Palmer has now shown what a shrewd operator he is. Many saw his apparent spray at the Chinese government as an off the cuff frustration as the QandA presenter pressured him on a commercial case he was embroiled in. Whether Clive realized it not (an we suspect with the money he has he can afford the best advice) he attacked at the most critical point.

Clive has shown he is able to legitimately convert financial power into political and media power.

This gave Clive Palmer two powerful weapons in his current cases against a Chinese business over money he is owed.

 

Mongrels, Bastards!

Palmer seemingly cornered, raises the stakes threatening to do the unthinkable.

Palmer seemingly cornered, raises the stakes threatening to do the unthinkable.

The Chinese government hates scandals.

 

http://dictionary.reference.com/browse/mongrel

In Australian  English ‘Mongrel’ means or mixed breed dog , applied to sports (particularly boxing) means tough aggressive man.

Mike Tyson’s boxing style might be described as Mongrel, tough, aggressive, and lacking complex technique.

When translated, the term Mongrel means mixed or hybrid.

Chinese are very sensitive on questions of race and race mixing and genealogy.

Bastard looses nothing in the translation but is generally considered more offensive in China than here, as the Chinese are very conservative in family matters.

Chinese are also very sensitive to insults in general, so much effort is spend on keeping up good appearances (saving face) it becomes a significant distraction in day to day life.

Chinese people eats dogs and wealthy people eat more dogs that those who are poor. Chinese people realize westerners find the idea of eating dog objectionable seeing dogs  largely as beloved pets or animals of service. Even wild or feral dogs which are culled are not eaten in the west, eating dog s is seen as a cultural taboo through much of the west.

Bastard also continues the theme of sexual improper conduct and adds in illegitimacy and despicable nature.

You have got more to loose than me. Game on!

You have got more to loose than me. Game on!

 

The most curious thing about the uses of these insults is that they are an anachronism even for someone of Clive Palmer’s age. The terms are now obscure in language generally, and are considered locally only mildly offensive.

So a mildly offensive remark in the Australian vernacular translates via a dog whistle (pun intended) to a highly offensive slur against a litigation opponent very much under control of the Chinese government. It entirely possible this scandal has reduced the resolve of Palmer’s opponent in the court case due to Chinese Government political pressure.  On the third party adjudicator side of the commercial case, the court is now under pressure to resolve the case in Palmer’s favor, as he is willing to damage trade relations with a very important international trade partner.  Palmer’s PUP party has a controlling wedge in the senate, able to block any legislation the opposition wont support. The opposition is unlikely to support Liberal/national policy because of its shock doctrine budget.

That’s a hell of a gambit by a man who can afford to move large pieces on the board.

They backed down, my stones are this big.

They backed down, my stones are this big.

 

Clive Palmer clearly is economically rational and hardly a man to do any thing without very careful precognition. Palmer openly admits he rarely attends the lower house where he is a member citing the fact his single vote there generally makes little difference in the outcomes. This in itself a dog whistle to the disenchanted vote who see both major parties as being out of touch and rightly seeing greens as being destructive Marxists. This was no accident, it was a carefully planned and disguised scandal to get leverage in his commercial case.

 

The apology was a week in forth coming so one can imagine the back room horse trading that was done to produce such an apology and smooth things over.

 

OK we can negotiate now.  How much did you say we owed you?

OK we can negotiate now.
How much did you say we owed you?

 

Billionaire mining magnates don’t apologize for free.

 

Best of I I'm tapping into nationalism and resentment of job losses to China, general dishonesty in Chinese business practices, and I'm dog whistling to the public that I'm a hero of the people strong enough to stand up against a bigger opponent.

Best of all I’m tapping into nationalism and resentment of job losses to China, general dishonesty in Chinese business practices, and I’m dog whistling to the public that I’m a hero of the people strong enough to stand up against a bigger opponent.

 

Clive Palmer now has significant leverage in his commercial case, after all he would not appear on a leftist echo chamber like QandA without a good reason.

Money is always a good reason.

*Scoring political points a good ancillary benefit.

How did the Chinese government feel about this?

Heres a clue, be sure to read the comment to this Chinese newspaper link.

Socialists, powertripping bureaucratic dishonest squabbling and bullying

I could make such bold claims just from observation of the ways socialism has utterly failed in almost every place it has been  imposed on any community, nation or state.

But don’t believe an individual with a bald face claim not matter how credible the source is, do your own research.

Here is where an Australian based socialist  (believed to be Ben Debney) attacks and smears each others peoples characters with calls of traitor, liar, —-phobic, stare rape, etc.

http://fairweathercomrades.wordpress.com/

Gee where is all their social justice and love of comrades when it is sorely needed? Oh that’s right that was just another lie they circulated for the useful idiots to believe.

It’s no surprise they claw each others eyes out, socialism is a dishonest and logically flawed ideology.

Do you think socialism could be the solution for you well consider this:

Socialism and the death toll.

Socialism and the death toll. Remember Nazi is short for NATional SocIalist.

 

Still think you and a few committed people you know can form a good committee and get things done properly?

cc-1917Remember Stalin got to be the great leader because he killed (or imprisoned) of all of his comrades who were competing for the top job, after Lenin died. Even in Lenin’s time it was not a safe happy place. More top soviet socialists were killed by their comrades than during the  civil war itself.

 

  It turns out that the ‘capitalist pigs’ were less blood thirsty than the cult of Karl Marx.

Justice Geoffrey Flick : MCC should be shot

Why?

this:

Justice Flick, one of three appeal judges, said he had reviewed footage of the removal of the tent dress and was shocked by what he saw.

“Those who made the directions for this conduct to be pursued should be shot. It’s grossly offensive,” he said.

 

http://www.heraldsun.com.au/news/victoria/those-who-ordered-removal-of-protesters-dress-should-be-shot-says-shocked-justice-geoffrey-flick/story-fni0fit3-1227032506383

Remember a knife was cutting the tent apart just inches from the back of Kerrsions neck during the incident. This knife (called a tool by Victoria Police) was provided to MCC workers by Victoria Police during the incident. One of the council workers refused to take part in the incident and walked away, though the remaining MCC workers and police mindlessly abused the young woman by tearing away her  clothes and leaving her in her underwear  on the grass.

 

This incident occurred the day after Victoria police were humiliated by the original tent monster action which saw Kerrison and two  other” tent monsters”  run around the park and  utterly demoralize Victoria police who felt like the fools that they were.

Clearly Victoria police don’t know the meaning of the phrase :”It’s all in good fun”

Jonathan Moylan avoids jail

 

Jono csg meme

http://www.smh.com.au/nsw/jonathan-moylan-avoids-jail-term-for-fake-anz-media-release-about-whitehaven-coal-20140725-zwwe7.html

 

Ok now, memes and MSM bullshit aside, did Jonathon Moylan do all that much damage to (ASX WHC) Whitehaven coal  ?

 

whitehaven analysisNot as much as you might think, WHC had been on the slide for 3 quarters before the ANZ corporate hoax. Investors dumping WHC in the previous 3 quarters had done more damage to WHC than Moylan. So effectively what Jono had done was arrive in time to see the rich obnoxious WHC house being burnt down by an angry mob and kicking in the letterbox while being cheered on the crowd of disenchanted. Of course a serious analysis might show this up but when you are underscoring the dangers of fracking (AKA CSG  AKA coal seam gas), But why let to many facts get in the way of good publicity. WHC had been under preforming the ASX 200 for several years, the business cycle, carbon tax, but even this being said its really hard to know how much damage a single well crafted rumor can do.

We are after all talking about Keynesian economics, with adherents who believe you can print fake money to appease animal spirits, which then magically repair an economy.

I couldn’t resist and it’s friday, for the tinfoilers out there, this video is from 1984, spooky.

For the OM hard core: which eviction was this song played at?
