Portugal’s largest bank has been bought by the government after toxic debts were discovered. Rather than stupidly bailing out the speculators and banking executives, the bank has been divided into two parts, the good part with all the assets, and the bad part with all the toxic debts for all the shareholders and speculators. This is effectively the same as finding the vandals on your wooden ship, making them a raft out of the wood they damaged, and them setting the vandals adrift on it, wishing them good luck knowing that it won’t help them.
Portugal has just invented the bailout we expected to happen in the USA following the GFC.
Fun Fact: Australia was once referred to as ‘Espirito Santo’.
Your aren’t allowed to know about what you aren’t allowed to know about.
In a truly big brother move the Australian government is trying to keep the suppression of information order itself secret.
What is next is secret prisons and secret prisoners.
From wikileaks.org press release:
Ok now, memes and MSM bullshit aside, did Jonathon Moylan do all that much damage to (ASX WHC) Whitehaven coal ?
Not 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?
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)
Jonathan Moylan had his own Mega Mosque moment when he created a parody email system called ANZcorporate and sent out fake press releases claiming a col mining project had lost it line of credit from ANZ, of course the share price when tumbling because all this is fake money and can disappear in an instant. Then the banksters got angry that people were figuring out their dirty tricks, his ‘roumortrage’ (rumor and arbitrage) had done real damage, but he unlike banksters had refused to take monetary advantage from it all.
Court case ensues, found guilty but unlikely to face jail because these kinds of finance crimes always have precedent and are usually accompanied by light sentences.
Amazing the kind of damage you can do with a few dollars, a clever idea and stone cold bluff.
Because absolutely nothing can be a real cool hand.

This video and related articles of Pope Francis accused of eating babies and performing satanic masses has lately made the rounds in activist circles. Clearly these accusations are ridiculous and unfounded, no matter how you might feel about Catholicism . However, when a friend recently shared this so-called evidence, I just commented that I don’t believe it. There is a lot of stuff being shared on the internet that I don’t believe and I just use whatever common sense and analytical skills I have to discern truth from fiction. However, one thing I did not accuse my friend of was spreading hate, although, when you think about it, anybody who ever writes or shares something critical is potentially spreading hate.
You are allowed to criticise everything from politicians to puppet masters, Christians to Jews. The Catholic Church has been in the news for accusations of paedophilia for quite some time now and rightly so.. To criticise something you think is abusive is a human right. At least it should be.
Strangely though, that right goes away when it comes to Islam. As soon as you dare speak out against Islam you are accused of spreading hate and being a right wing , racist bigot. Even in the face of overwhelming evidence that there are massive human rights abuses going on under Islam and Sharia law, which is about to be fully instated in so-called modern countries like Malaysia.
I don’t understand why some activists are confused about occupymelbourne.net being critical of Islam. We are critical of a lot of human right abuses, Islam is just one of them. It is not being singled out as the only topic on this website, but presents a major issue to a regional community at this time.
And clearly, the government has again proven that it doesn’t want to listen and that people have no right to decide what they want in their own communities.
As for the people who are accusing this website to be a splinter group from the “real” Occupy Melbourne : It’s quite funny how others claim to be the leaders of a leaderless movement which they pronounced dead well over a year ago, leaving the rest, who wanted to continue, to do whatever they want with the name. Now they are coming out of the woodwork to say that this is not the real Occupy Melbourne, which is presumably still dead, even though it continues on a weekly basis with OM Free Kitchen.
In addition, it must be said that there are many voices within the OM community, who cannot and should not have to agree on everything. Occupy is not an organisation , nor is it a party with the associated groupthink,

Barbra Streisand to play a
“stop the mega mosque”
benefit concert in Caulfield.
There are many levels to why we posted this video.
The Streisand Effect is the response to any kind of censorship or coverup in the internet age. A cover up in this day and age leads to even greater scrutiny. Barbra Streisand famously attempted to censor a picture of her house which of course lead to massive interest where there was originally little. The original Facebook page for Stop the Bendigo Mosque was censored out of existence temporarily after we began investigating the issue.
Streisand was politically active and was even listed as an enemy of Richard Nixon, being active on issues such as civil rights, Women’s rights and civil liberties. Streisand’s favorite issues really would really fly in the face of Islam even before considering she is Jewish and has made significant contributions to Jewish educational institutions.
Guilty was a perfect choice of song as “we have nothing to be guilty of ” as we are not professional journalists and anyone following this source knows we often run parody articles to raise points which we consider important and would like to raise awareness and discussion of. Any person claiming to be a journalist and thoughtlessly believe anything they see on the internet, and without any real research republish, effectively deserves the egg on face moment. This is also an indictment on modern Main Stream Media (MSM) where most published words are literately press releases copied and pasted with little actual fact checking or analysis. Journalism could be better and should be better. In the early 1970’s what would be called a journalist would today be called a conspiracy theorist ( a Nixon neologism).
We are glad to have underscored an issue that might have gone unnoticed. MSM employees: if you keep up the copy and paste routine you will be replaced by a Facebook page run by unpaid teenagers. Start asking some real questions show some skepticism and think about the stories you are pushing into the world. Read between the line a little guys.
Barry Gibb an Ozzy artist and how can you not like 70’s music. I think we might have invented the term ‘mega mosque’. Reading comprehension is not optional.
This is not an apology.
While on the same day yesterday, The age published two stories on Muslim issues but seemed to fail to understand any connection between the two stories. Do you guys even read your own paper? Of course it didn’t help that a ugly caricature of Tony Abbott in Speedos with a soccer ball was between the two stories discouraging any intelligent eye from moving in that path.
These publications took an interest in the mega mosque story.
Funny you didn’t care when they were building a mosque in Bendigo, but on your own doorstep, you did.
We call that NIMBY, Not In My Back Yard. Maybe you should all care more about this country, not just your own house price or debt to equity ratio.
Any statement from an Islamic body cannot be relied on,
as Islam demands that all Muslims must lie in order to advance the cause of Islam.
This practice is called:

Now that’s what I call journalism…
there is a little thing at the bottom of the page called ‘comments’ with a number next to it, if you read that section you might get some more context before you run off half cocked, I think you have that feature on some of your articles, we have it on all of our articles. And yes we moderate comments also.
