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

Ashley Madison database released

In a move reminiscent of a chapter from Neuromancer, a secret group of hackers stole a corporate database and apparently ransomed the corporation using the stolen data as leverage.

The data release proves several frauds of the corporation:

*User delete service, where the user details are not actually deleted.

*Misleading customers, by creating fake ‘products’ (bait user accounts).

*Misrepresenting the users chances of success of product use ( the ratio of real male to female accounts was possibly as high as 1000 to 1).

Of course this will lead to more lawsuits against Ashley Madison who have in the past paid out on misrepresenting their user base for a profit motive.

You will need a torrent service to download the database.

If you pay for an internet dating site you are probably a man, and you are probably more likely to meet the woman of your dreams in a gay night club.

So if you are thinking this fraud is isolated you might be surprised that any organized paid for dating service is a fraud.

Reclaim Australia vs Socialists protests

Neither side looked good during all of this and police turned it up to 11 with OC (pepper) spray/foam in response to assaults by socialists.

Ordinary people who have had enough: Revisiting the Freeman On The Land movement

Interesting article on the validity of the Freeman on he Land movement not only on the basis of it’s “alternative” legal principles but as an effective  peaceful protest movement designed to disrupt civil court proceedings to a point where they no longer become affordable for the state:

“The real impact of the Freeman movement is likely to come not from any arcane legal discovery but from a systematic peaceful protest by the public against what is perceived as the unjust abuse of the civil law. Were the disruption to the courts already engendered by this movement to be repeated on a larger and more widespread scale, it would likely cause the breakdown of civil law on the basis that the consent underlying that jurisdiction had in effect been withdrawn by a significant proportion of those involved, and that obtaining a judgement against a defendant could no longer be regarded as generally enforceable or affordable.  Without a single unlawful act being committed, those people concerned would have had a potentially far-reaching effect on our nation’s legal development whose consequences cannot at present be foreseen.”

legal fiction

Jet train solves drivers license problems

OK I know what you are thinking, WTF is this about. After doing some legal research (which we do from time to time for the lols), we discovered that locomotives and railway rolling stock are not classed as vehicles according to the road safety act 1986, and therefore are completely unregulated. Insanely enough a bicycle is considered to be a vehicle or almost any thing else that moves. Kick a can down the road, its vehicle, but if it has railway wheels under it, they can’t touch it.

Vehicle
means a conveyance that is designed to be propelled or drawn by any means, whether or not capable of being so propelled or drawn,
and includes bicycle or other pedal-powered vehicle, trailer, tram-car and air-cushion vehicle but
does not include railway locomotive or railway rolling stock;

 

So for all the people who don’t have a license we have the solution: Jet train.

Our resident engineers are furiously struggling to find way to steer the dam thing, and there is also that kind of annoying thing about the way it leaves massive grooves in the road, but we are sure than since speeding fines alone are a billion dollar per year industry, the market will find a way.

So lost your license due to speed, booze, pills, or what ever?

Want to escape the hassle of staying sober and obeying speed limits?

Getting tired of having to stop for flashing blue lights?

Tired of waiting at intersections?

Then jet train could be right for you!

Save money and time by avoiding fines and court cases!

 Best of all its completely legal*.

*According to Victorian Road Safety Act 1986 a locomotive is not a vehicle and none of the act applies to it.

Legal and making sense are not the same thing obviously.

For those on a budget we are working on a small flat bed bogey with a pulse jet for forward motion.

Depreston Courtney Barnett

 

I think this speaks to the housing affordability crisis that has artificially been created in Melbourne (and other Australian cities) by  super funds speculating in real estate.

So enters Courtney Barnett to explain the situation with her unique style of silver tone guitar,  incisive half sung/half spoken word lyrics. Then something really strikes you about this young woman, she actually seems authentic, apparently no make up, jeans and t shirt sensibility. She is almost a reaction to utterly plasticized corporate controlled music and pop culture of the last three decades.

But I guess you would have to be authentic to say, “Hey buying a house is going to be a hell of a struggle in Melbourne right now” rather than the oh so standard response of people just grinning and bearing it to keep up appearances. Thanks for singing about something that really resonates with a lot of people.

Courtney Barnett: More likely to meet Christopher Walken, than put a down payment on a flat in Brunswick.

With recent scandals such as #Gamergate, censorship, moderation bias and the infestation of SJW moderators, The diehard politically incorrect  /pol/  users (AKA Polacks) have largely left 4chan and have set up their HQ in the rather new 8chan, also called infinitychan.

8chan was designed to look much like /pol/ did on 4chan and its is just as politically incorrect as ever. Its not a place for the weak of heart, stomach, or nerves.

Have you blood pressure medication in standby, along with you butt hurt cream if you dare visit 8chan/pol/ . You’ll read some interesting discussions which you will be able to take part in anonymously* (what passes for anonymously these days at least), you also read some complete crap and some really offensive things. You’ll read things there some people won’t wont you to read, and one of those people may be you.

It’s called freedom of speech,

and it also includes the freedom to be offended,

and offend others.

 

If the following video offends you, 8chan/pol/ may not be the right place for you.

Russian traffic enforcement experiment

Russian activists attempt to stop people driving on the sidewalk near a gas station.

Several things about this protest action are quite surprising.

1: People, with out any physical force, just the threat of shaming violators, can affect a change in behavior.

2: About half of people will change their ways when just faced with shame or minor inconvenience.

3: The most serious offenders are people who are truly obnoxious.

4: Government officials are very likely to break the rules, at 3:14 a Russian internal affairs spokesman arrives and then reverses back out again, rules are made for the government to break.

Recognise that its a trap

It sounds like a good idea, lets all be friends on an equal footing all with the same rights. Certainly sounds fair, but we all didn’t get here at about the same time, by the same means , or in the same circumstances. Some of us have root going back thousands of years to the dawn of civilization, some just got off a gunboat 8 generations ago and acted like it too.

 

Think of it like this:

 

You are having a family party at your home, rather quiet, just the family.Then all of a sudden hundreds of people burst through the front door and literally start going mad, they tear up the garden and start selling your possessions and even start selling tickets to even more people that start coming. You keep telling them to all leave and that the house is yours and you didn’t invite any of them and they have no permission to be there. every time you complain the gatecrashers say you don’t have a ticket so what you say doesn’t matter. The people selling the tickets realize your complaints are hurting ticket sales so they offer you tickets for free just to shut you up.  The ticket is red and has a big white R on it. Do you accept the ticket? Do you realize accepting the ticket will really hurt you chances of a damages law suit against the gate crashers

 

See why its a trap?

See why its a trap?

Yes that’s right by accepting the R ticket you will be agreeing that you are just another gatecrasher and have so land-rights or any special historical connection to the land.

 

Yes it is a racist rights and real estate robbery, its signing up to be robbed.

Come on, lets be smart, if Tony Abbott really wants this it has to be bad for us, that logic works 9 time out of 10 regardless of what the topic is.

 

Get a treaty not a second class citizenship.

Banks terrorize Australian farmers viral letter

Apparently this is an open letter from a Queensland based vet that has gone viral. I can see why it has everything were were trying to say at occupy written all over it. The 1930’s are back, grapes of wrath style with greedy banks turfing out farmers for a profit.

Warning: Banks may attempt to foreclose on you even if you have never missed a payment, it’s all about what ever suits the banks profit margin, not about law,  due process or rights.

Politicians of Australia, the people are speaking – and you need to listen.
The team of people who are supporting David – who is flat out working and operating on horses right now – took a call from one of Australia’s most respected and best loved former political leaders this morning who said:
THAT VETS LETTER HAS BECOME A DEFINING MOMENT IN OUR NATIONS HISTORY..”

read it yourself….

AN OPEN LETTER TO THE AUSTRALIAN PEOPLE:

Dear Men and Women of Australia,

There are two photographs on this page, and while they might look like father and daughter, they are separated by two nations, one ocean and some seventy years.

Yet incredibly, they are both part of the same tragedy, the kind that leaves deep and irreparable scars on a nation and its people for a lifetime.

The young woman who was born in 1907. The elderly man who was born twenty seven years later in 1934.

The photograph of the woman was taken in the Great Depression of 1936 when the man was a two year old boy.

Her name was Florence Owens Thompson and she was a 32 year old mother of seven who was photographed sitting homeless in a tent. The image was published across the newspapers of America and it managed to enrage the nation, because people could not believe that Americans could be treated in such a way.

It forced President Roosevelt to act, to step up and become a leader for his times: he launched soup kitchens, work gangs, programs for the homeless, dams and roads and railways were built – and he gave his people hope.

John Steinbeck later wrote a book called The Grapes of Wrath which became an American literary Icon. It was about a drought that made the farmers penniless – and how the banks had forced them off their land so they could sell it on to the big powerful corporations. What happened to the farmers of Oklahoma ultimately carved a deep and shameful scar across the American identity that was felt throughout the Twentieth Century.

The second photograph on this page is of Charlie Phillott, now 80, an elderly farmer from the ruggedly beautiful Carisbrooke Station at Winton. He has owned his station since 1960, nurtured it and loved it like a part of his own flesh. He is a grand old gentleman, one of the much loved and honoured fathers of his community.

Not so long ago, the ANZ bank came and drove him off his beloved station because the drought had devalued his land and they told him he was considered an unviable risk. Yet Charlie Phillott has never once missed a single mortgage payment.

Today this dignified Grand Old Man of the West is living like some hunted down refugee in Winton, shocked and humiliated and penniless. And most of all, Charlie Phillott is ashamed, because as a member of the Great Generation – those fine and decent and ethical men and women who built this country – he believes that what happened to him was somehow his own fault. And the ANZ Bank certainly wanted to make sure they made him feel like that.

Last Friday my wife Heather and I flew up with Alan Jones to attend the Farmers Last Stand drought and debt meeting in Winton. And after what I saw being done to our own people, I have never been more ashamed to be Australian in my life.

What is happening out there is little more than corporate terrorism: our own Australian people are being bullied, threatened and abused by both banks and mining companies until they are forced off their own land.

So we must ask: is this simply to move the people off their land and free up it up for mining by foreign mining companies or make suddenly newly empty farms available for purchase by Chinese buyers? As outrageous as it might seem, all the evidence flooding in seems to suggest that this is exactly what is going on.

What is the role of Government in all of this? Why have both the State and Federal Government stood back and allowed such a dreadful travesty to happen to our own people? Where was Campbell Newman on this issue? Where was Prime Minister Abbott? The answer is nowhere to be seen.

For the last few months, the Prime Minister has warned us against the threats of terrorism to our nation. We have been alerted to ISIS and its clear and present danger to the Australian people.

Abbott has despatched Australian military forces into the Middle East in an effort to destroy this threat to our own safety and security. This mobilization of our military forces has come at a massive and unbudgeted expense to the average Australian taxpayer which the Prime Minister estimates to be around half a billion dollars each year.

We are told that terrorism is dangerous not only because of the threat to human life but also because it displaces populations and creates the massive human cost of refugees.

Yet not one single newspaper or politician in this land has exposed the fact that the worst form of terrorism that is happening right now is going on inside the very heartland of our own nation as banks and foreign mining companies are deliberately and cruelly forcing our own Australian farmers off the land.

What we saw in the main hall of the Winton Shire Council on Friday simply defied all description: a room filled with hundreds of broken and battered refuges from our own country. It was a scene more tragic and traumatic than a dozen desperate funerals all laced onto the one stage.

Right now, all over the inland of both Queensland and NSW, there is nothing but social and financial carnage on a scale that has never before been witnessed in this nation.

It was 41 degrees when we touched down at the Winton airport, and when you fly in low over this landscape it is simply Apocalyptic: there has not been a drop of rain in Winton for two years and there is not a sheep, a cow, a kangaroo, an emu or a bird in sight. Even the trees in the very belly of the creeks are dying.

There is little doubt that this is a natural disaster of incredible magnitude – and yet nobody – neither state nor the federal government – is willing to declare it as such.

The suicide rate has now reached such epic proportions right across the inland: not just the farmer who takes the walk “ up the paddock” and does away with himself but also their children and their wives. Once again, it has barely been covered by the media, a dreadful masquerade that has assisted by the reticence and shame of honourable farming families caught in these tragic situations.

My wife is one of the toughest women I know. Her family went into North West of Queensland as pioneers one hundred years ago: this is her blood country and these are her people . Yet when she stood up to speak to this crowd on Friday she suddenly broke down: she told me later that when she looked into the eyes of her own people, what she saw was enough to break her heart

And yet not one of us knew it was this bad, this much of a national tragedy. The truth is that these days, the Australian media basically doesn’t give a damn. They have been muzzled and shut down by governments and foreign mining companies to the extent that they are no longer willing to write the real story. So the responsibility is now left to people like us, to social media – and you, the Australian people.

And so the banks have been free to play their games and completely terrorise these people at their leisure. The drought has devalued the land and the banks have seen their opportunity to strike. It was exactly the excuse that they needed to clean up and make a fortune, because once the rains come – as they always do – this land will be worth four to ten times the price.

In fact, when farmers have asked for the payout figures, the banks have been either deeply reluctant or not capable of providing the mortgage trail because they have on-sold the mortgage – just like sub-prime agriculture.

This problem isn’t simply happening in Winton, but rather right across the entire inland across Queensland and NSW. The banks have been bringing in the police to evict Australian famers and their families from their farms, many of them multigenerational. One farmer matter of factly told us it took “oh, about 7 police” to evict him from his first farm and “maybe about twelve” to evict him from his second farm which had been in his family for many generations. You think they are kidding you. Then you see the expression in their eyes.

And there was something far worse in the room on Friday: the fear of speaking out against the banks: when we asked people to tell us who had done this to them, they would immediately start to shake and cry and look away: They have been silenced to protect the good corporate image of their tormentors called the banks. What in God’s name have the bastard banks been allowed to do to our people?

This is a travesty against the rights and the human dignity of every Australian

So it’s only fair that we start to name a few of major banks involved: The ANZ is a major culprit (they made $7 billion profit last year). Then there is Rabo – which is an international agricultural bank – the NAB, Bank West and Westpac (who paid CEO Gail Kelly a yearly salary of some $12 million). They are all equally guilty. For any that we have missed, rest assured they will be publicly exposed as well

But here’s the thing: when these people are forced off their farms, they have nowhere to go. There are no refugee services waiting, such is the case for those who attempt to enter the sovereign borders of this nation. The farmers simply drive to the nearest town – that’s if the banks haven’t stripped their cars off them as well – and they try and find somewhere to sleep. Some are sleeping on the backs of trucks in swags. There is basically no home or accommodation made available to take them. They camp out, shocked and broken and penniless – and they are living on weet bix and noodles. If there is someone that can lend a family enough money to buy food, they will: otherwise they are left completely alone.

And consider this: not one of them has asked for help. Not one. They just do the best they can, ashamed and broken and brainwashed by the banks to believe that everything that has happened is completely their own fault

There is not one single word of this from a politicians lips, with the exception of the incredibly courageous father and son team of Bob and Robbie Katter, who organised the Farmers Last Stand meeting. The Katter family have been in the North since the 1890’s, and nobody who sat in that hall last Friday could question their love and commitment to their own people.

There is barely a mention of any of this as well in the newspapers, with the exception of as brief splash of publicity that followed our visit.

The Minister for Agriculture Barnaby Joyce attended the meeting in a bitter blue-funk kind of mood that saw him mostly hunched over and staring at the floor. He had given $100 million of financial assistance in a lousy deal where the Government will borrow at 2.75% and loan it back at 3.21%.

The last thing these people need is another loan: they need a Redevelopment Bank to refinance their own loans: issuing a loan to pay off a loan is nothing more than financial suicide.

The reality is that Joyce cannot get support from what he calls “the shits in Cabinet” to create a desperately needed Redevelopment Bank so that these farmers can get cheap loans to tide them through to the end of the drought.

Our sources suggest that those “shits in Cabinet” include Malcolm Turnbull – Minister for Communications and the uber-cool trendy city-centric Liberal in the black leather jacket:, Andrew Robb – Minster for Trade and Investment and the man behind the free trade deal, the man who suddenly acquired three trendy Sydney restaurants almost overnight, the man who seems to suddenly desperate to sell off our farms to China – and one Greg Hunt, Environment Minister and the man who is instantly approving almost every single mining project that is put in front of him.

At the conclusion of the meeting, we stood and met some of the people in the crowd. My wife talked to women who would hug her for dear life, and when they walked away people would suddenly murmur “oh, she was forced off last week” or “they are being forced off tomorrow” . Not one of them mentioned it to us. They had too much pride.

The Australian people need to be both informed and desperately outraged about what is being done to our own people. This is about every right that was once held dear to us: human rights, property rights, civil rights. And most all, our right to freedom of speech. All of that has been taken away from these people – and the rest of us need to understand that we are probably next.

In the last four weeks the Newman Government has removed all farmers rights to protest to a mine and given mining companies the rights to take all the water they want from the Great Artesian Basin – and at no cost to them at all.

And all of this has happened under the watch of both Premier Newman and Prime Minister Abbott.

Until Friday, we used to think of Winton as the home of Waltzing Matilda: it was written at a local station and first performed in the North Gregory Hotel. I think it was Don McLean who wrote, “something touched me deep inside…the day the music died”… in his song American Pie, and for us, last Friday was the day music died.

We will never be able to sing Waltzing Matilda again until we see some justice for these people, and all the farmers of the inland.

This is no longer the Australia we once knew: no longer our country, no longer our people, no longer the decent caring leaders we once remembered.

Right now, the banks, the mining mates, the corrupt politicians and all the ‘mongrels in suits’ have won – and the Australian people don’t have a clue what has been done to them.

Like the American Depression and the iconic photograph of Florence Owens Thompson, there is a terrible, gaping wound that has been carved across the heartland of this nation.

We need to fully grasp that, and to understand that our people – dignified, decent and honourable old men like Charlie Phillott – have been deliberately terrorized, brutalised – and sold out.

In one sense, Charlie Phillott has become the symbol overnight of every decent Australian: the simple right to live out our lives on the land we love – and the land we are still free to call our own. At least until some dangerously persuaded corrupted trendy liberal theorist decided to strip all that away.

The truth is, no Australian was ever consulted about whether or not they wanted to see their land mined into oblivion or see our precious water poisoned and given away for free, whether they wanted to be driven off their land by the greed of banking executives who saw the chance to make a profit by wiping out the weakest and most vulnerable amongst us.

No Australian was ever consulted about whether or not we wanted to see our beloved homeland sold on the cheap to greedy faceless foreigners just because some slimy two-faced minister managed to convince a weakened prime minster to meekly carry out his bidding.

Nobody has asked us. We the People. Not once.

So if we are ever going to do something, then we’d better realise that its now only two minutes to midnight – so we’d better move fast.

Regards

David
