Things that happened more than 12 months ago.
So hanving been sold out by a carefully managed implosion of his wiki leaks party, all over whether preferences were going to go to the left or right, It’s pretty fair to say Assange has been used and discarded by the left for apparently failing one of their claimed moral standards. Sure all the sex allegation stuff was carefully put in a memory hole while he was hot property, along with he fact he acted like a bit of a heart breaker when women were literally throwing themselves at him. But that’s the left and feminism for you, they love a bad boy and then want to scream a blue murder (or rape) when the sour grapes arrive. I mean he really should have known that being a white male is toxic commodity to leftists and they were primed to drop him like a stone when a small amount of heat came on.
So all this bullshit about principles ( free speech, transparency, political freedom, commitment….) it all goes out the window when the next bandwagon arrives. So what can we do now for Assange?
The Australian government has left him out in the cold, despite the fact they are right now willing to send 50 police and ATSB to war torn Ukraine to look for Australian body parts and stolen luggage, But a living Australian citizen in a friendly country with a politically hot legal hassle, nope.
So apart form beating the drum and producing memes that might get stuck on an Ecuadorean embassy fridge in London, lets look and some overlooked facts about Assange.
I can almost feel a man cringing at a laptop reading and thinking “Oh shit, what’s this gonna be”.
Julian Assange was born on July 3 1971, the same day Jim Morrison died. Strangely there are more connections and similarities.
Morrison was born in a place called Melbourne (Florida) and left in order to study, later becoming a famous counterculture icon. Morrison famously fled the US to Europe (France) escaping a contrived court case.
Assange moved to place called Melbourne (Victoria) to study, later becoming a counterculture icon. Assange famously fled from Europe (Sweden) to the UK to escape a contrived US prosecution.
Both had in common:
- Had transient childhoods and continued traveling as adults.
- Born during foreign wars their countries were involved in, Morrison: WW2, Assange: Vietnam.
- Well read, serious, intelligent drop outs, critical of war.
- Were described as rock stars and had love children.
- Were applauded/hounded for the ideas they promoted.
- Were politically minded and spoke of their concern for the present and future.
- Were known to ham it up for the camera occasionally.
Morrison in his later years, even after all that booze and drugs makes a remarkable prediction. (That hair is real)
Assange in his early 40′s showing the prediction is true and having a bit of a giggle. (That is a wig)

Guess what Australia, you are 30 years behind New Zealand!
A wave of shocked silence followed by jeers echos across the country…
Australians all angrily ask “What are we behind in?”
“Apart from Rugby Union and occasionally Netball we are not behind New Zealand!”
Only if it was so unimportant as sport, you might see whats really going on. You have been blinded by bread and circuses, or perhaps beer and footy.
Split Enz, from New Zealand in 1981, with a song written by Neil Finn, unfortunately history does repeat.
New Zealand, for decades, has been a social policy test tube for the western world. A small, largely isolated population that reeled from the Neo- con ‘shock doctrine’ of Chicago school economists.
Even more surprising was the fact that this hard core Neo-con agenda was run by the New Zealand’s Labour party, a political outfit more or less akin to the ALP in political ideology and electoral significance.
Well it would have been akin to the ALP, if it wasn’t for a few key individuals who drew inspiration from Thatcher and Regan who were in office at the time in UK and USA respectively.
Would you like to look into a somewhat tame version of what is happening now in Australian Politics with the Abbott/Hockey budget?
Have a glance at these somewhat surreal crystal balls, telling you a potential future for Australia from New Zealand’s troubled past.
If you do not watch these films, you only have yourself to blame when further nasty surprises happen!
Its worth pointing out that despite this film being made more than 12 years after the neo- con ravage and upheaval in NZ, it was effectively banned from NZ television until 2003, nearly 20 years after the events it portrayed. You might ask why, and that’s the exact question the New Zealand Government didn’t want its citizens asking. Citizens who were now being treated as units of economic production.
Another film by the same director (Alistair Barry) about the same events from a slightly different and more enlightened perspective, explores how the Reserve Bank of New Zealand was behind many of the initiatives. Curiously the director said his main inspiration for making the movies was he had so much footage that simply made him angry, and he had to understand why it make him angry, and what was actually driving the economic and social carnage witnessed.
Both of the films heavily feature television archives, which many New Zealanders would have seen as part of news broadcasts at the time of the events, some clips appear in both films because of the significant to both stories and the political history described.
Split Enz I walk away; 1984, from their last album.
Perhaps Split Enz saw the (economic) writing on the wall, splitting up in 1984 and temporarily moving to Los Angeles before morphing into ‘The Mullanes’ and finally ‘Crowded House’ and moving back ‘home’ to Australia.
The opening credits of this video sadly will not put to bed any lingering debate over whether Crowded House was Kiwi band or and Aussie band, as Hester had joined Split Enz before the remainder of Split Enz became ‘Crowded House’.
The best compromise to this sometimes confused friendly debate is best settled with this: Crowded House was a Melbourne band that formed in the USA from the remains of a New Zealand band.
Welcome to the confusion and dislocation of the shock doctrine and globalization.
And finally Crowded House ‘Weather with you’ from 1992. When the rapacious globalist corporations come, they bring the weather (and its not good weather).
If you don’t think it can happen here, this week should have been a wake up call, Chile was taken by surprise in 1973, as was New Zealand in 1984, will Australia wake up and get wise in 2014?
History does repeat.
What was once a purely New Zealand phenomenon can easily become completely ingrained in Australia, be it music or political ideology.
RIP Paul Hester
I will attempt to identify all the lies and attempt to correct them, but it is as difficult task as the picture painted is so grossly distorted.
EXCLUSIVE: OCCUPY Melbourne protesters who shut down the city and vandalised buildings have left the public with a million-dollar bill in legal fees and clean-up and other costs.
1 (Vandalized buildings? Where is the evidence of this, chalk does not count.)
Documents obtained by the Herald Sun under Freedom of Information laws reveal the public cost of protesters suing the city council, police and the State Government in legal action that ultimately failed.
2 ( Occupy Melbourne never democratically voted to be represented by Fitzroy Legal Service: Nick Carson ( a Greens Party stooge) simply announced this at a General assembly in the first week of Occupy Melbourne at City Square. Nick Carson should be held financially liable for the bills Fitzroy Legal has given to the taxpayer, he certainly attempted to profit from Occupy Melbourne and accepted no liability for his actions)
Lord Mayor Robert Doyle said he was outraged authorities had won in court, but the public still had to pay.
The City of Melbourne has paid over $554,000 to Hunt & Hunt Lawyers since 2011 after activists Sara Kerrison and James Muldoon sued, claiming the arrest and eviction of Occupy Melbourne protesters had been illegal.
3 (No one forced The City of Melbourne corporation to relentlessly harass Occupy Melbourne, who firmly believed they were acting within the law. It is also not reasonable to destroy other people’s property and then charge them for the clean- up costs. it is also not reasonable for a vexatious litigant to claim their victims are responsible for their extensive legal costs)
Council had to spend an extra $71,000 on emergency barricades and to clean up the area and remove graffiti.
4 (No one forced the illegal imprisonment of protesters or the locking up of City Square for more than a week. Similarly, no-one forced the wanton destruction of property by police)
Victoria Police’s legal bills are understood to be at least double the council’s, raising the prospect that the full bill to the public is well into seven figures.
5 (Victoria Police corporation, while acting illegally, have no right to demand their costs be met by the tax payer, furthermore no right even when acting according to statute, as they are a private corporation , not a legitimate branch of government)
When asked about the costs uncovered by the Herald Sun, Lord Mayor Robert Doyle said: “One, they took us to the Federal Court. Two, they lost.
“Three, costs were awarded against them with very little likelihood that they can pay.
“Four, the bill is $554,000 – that’s legal fees alone to the city. And they are now taking us to appeal.”
6 ( Starting a sentence with ‘And’ is pretty poor form for a professional ‘journalist’ )
The public had also footed the bill for the Occupy protesters’ failed court action.
Fitzroy Legal Service, The Human Rights Law Centre – both partly government-funded – and top barrister Ron Merkel, QC, took on the case.
7 (These parasitic incompetent law services all lined up ready to pilfer the public purse, offered poor advice, collapsed the case and then congratulated themselves on a job well done. Fitzroy Legal Service even received an award from City of Melbourne. Fitzroy Legal also attempted to steal computer equipment from Ocuppy Melboure and actually destroyed some video evidence they were entrusted with. )
Mr Muldoon and Ms Kerrison lost a Federal Court challenge last year after seeking to restrain the City of Melbourne from what they argued was unlawful conduct in regards to compliance notices issued by the council.
8 ( The extremely poor advice caused the loss of the case, the most fundamental constitutional principle, section 109 was not mentioned. Mr Muldoon ( a law student ) who used his limited and self-serving involvement in Occupy Melbourne to then offer university law lectures on the topic, strangely was told he was not a representative of Occupy Melbourne at the last hearing, leaving Ms Kerrison effectively holding the bag. This was despite both litigants seeking and receiving the blessing from a public general assembly at Occupy Melbourne to represent Occupy Melbourne in federal court. In short Muldoon (a law student from a wealthy family) should be just as liable as Kerrison, but as usual the law society looks after its own )
The court backed the police arrests.
Ms Kerrison has now filed an appeal to the Full Federal Court. She faces a potential $1 million plus legal bill from Melbourne City Council, Victoria Police and the state if she loses that.
The Occupy Melbourne group, which was part of the worldwide Occupy movement, was issued with council penalty notices after it erected tents in the City Square and two CBD gardens in November 2011.
Police clashed with demonstrators when they arrested almost 100 people after ordering them to leave.
9 ( The arrests were illegal, as you have a right to protest, and Ms Kerrison is quite within her rights to appeal such a flawed decision)
Following a WikiLeaks protest at the US consulate in October 2012, Ms Kerrison was fined $1000 without conviction on three charges including hindering and resisting police and theft of police handcuffs.
10 (Victoria Police targeted Ms Kerrison for abuse since the initial tent monster incident in december 2011: the very next day she was thrown to the asphalt when there was oncoming traffic. At the WikiLeaks protest she was snatched (from the arms of another protester) and abducted by the police for no reason, and dumped in St Kilda. The handcuffs she was accused of stealing were the handcuffs on her wrists. Police were just too incompetent to realize she slipped them off her wrists and they had gone missing, because dumping abducted activists is a deniable operation and nothing gets written down. Kerrison could easily claim the handcuffs are evidence of a crime and hers to keep until the matter is resolved in court of law)
Melbourne city Councillor Richard Foster, describing the fees as substantial, said: “I would be very guarded on expending ourselves on further proceedings.”
11 (Richard Forster is well-known political opportunist, and former lawyer for a big bank, he campaigned on MCC transparency, and once elected pushed for more secrecy, good example of the people who Occupy are against)
Ratepayers Victoria president Jack Davis said once again the public was left to pay.
12 (Occupy Melbourne, to the best of my knowledge are not demanding public money, greedy incompetent lawyers are demanding money from the public and are using Occupy Melbourne as the scapegoat for their greed. Rate payers are reminded that if they vote for incompetent narcissistic fascists they deserve what they get, a nasty surprise)
Christopher Gillett has grossly misled the public with this heavily biased corporate press release. It’s no surprise the Herald Sun is part of the Rupert Murdoch /Fox News propaganda empire.
Advice for Ms Kerrison:
Keep on appealing but you need to learn the legal principles that are being used against you. Be aware that the legal system is a façade and that the entire process is in commerce and for profit, sometimes simply wearing them down is the best solution. Be aware that the law society is the lawyers, police and judges all working together to fleece the public and the court case is a minor squabble among them to decide which of them (not you) gets paid. These minor squabbles are seldom ever interrupted unless the public get too interested or offended by the blatant injustice. Remember the horribly brutalised protesters at the S11 protest still have received no compensation.
Justice is the last thing the justice system is about, look at the giant metal mural on the country court, a woman blind to reason with the scales of commerce tilted in her favour and propped up by and reliant on force, the sword as a walking cane, this should be a clue as to what occurs in the building.
Get real advice about the law not advice from slimy back stabbing lawyers who just see you as a walking pay check and totally disposable. Just like the way Muldoon sold you out behind your back.
Of course the global warming people will call the Met Office ‘a fringe anti-government cult’ or ‘paid off shill’.
The last time global warming was a plausible theory was when Bill Clinton was in office.
Global warming and climate change celebrates 15 years of cognitive dissonance.
Money as debt 3
A really good look at money which goes on to explain major theories of how different types money can succeed or fail.
Its worth pointing out that early on in the movie the concept of money as flow is important, this is a good explanation of the economic concept of ‘velocity of money’.
Velocity of money broadly speaking is the number of times (on average) a single unit of money is spent in a year. This concept may seem to be mere trivia until you realize it is very important in calculating inflation.
It concludes that money really is a promise to provide goods and/or services in the future, and that money is only as good as that promise.
In an extremely unexpected announcement The Greens party leader Adam Bandt admits global warming is not real.
Basically were a Marxist party so we really want to internally rot any country that has not accepted cultural and/or economic Marxism.
The Global Warming Carbon Tax is a perfect vehicle for this, its economically destructive, it appeals to individual guilt for an imagined problem, and it covers up while mitigating a real problem, peak oil.
Furthermore the global warming scam allows us to simply ignore all other environmental problems, the ‘death of the entire planet’ line really make all other problems seem insignificant.
As you know, most of the money the Australian government has collected via global warming / carbon tax rackets has been wasted on junkets and tribunes to the higher ups in the scam, like Al Gore, the IPCC and their paid off ‘scientists’.
I goes to show how careful one must be with the media, the public are still only just learning to filter out the bullshit we feed them constantly. Global warming and the carbon tax is just one of many ploys being used on the public.
I just had to come clean eventually, I’m politician and a lawyer, I’m expected to be honest, so I’d rather admit it now and take a small reputation hit, before I get destroyed by a clever investigative journalist.
Adam closed with this famous quote.
If you tell a big enough lie and tell it frequently enough, it will be believed.
