Wednesday 29th October 2014

Open letter to the Prime Minister Mr Tony Abbott and the Defence Minister Mr David Johnston

The Independent and Peaceful Australia Network (IPAN) bring together over 50 community based peace and justice organisations across Australia.

We wish to express our grave concern regarding the alleged actions of SAS personnel, towards a small group of peaceful protesters at Swan Island military base on the 2nd October.

It is our understanding the Swan Island Peace Convergence group has protested Australian involvement in foreign wars over the past 5 years with protesters treated lawfully and peacefully by the ADF and the Victorian Police Force.

We in the IPAN are concerned that the tactics used this time, which include hooding, stripping of clothing, physical and verbal violence from ADF personnel reflect the Australian government’s current policies which restrict civil liberties on the basis of the threat of terrorism to Australian citizens.

The actions of the ADF personnel are reminiscent of the treatment of prisoners in the Abu Ghraib prison in 2004 by US troops, and indeed correlate with a number of inquiries into treatment of civilians by ADF personnel during Australian military engagement in Afghanistan.

We ask, are our young men and women in the ADF being trained to commit war crimes?

When viewed in the context of the government’s decision to send Australian forces into Iraq for the 3rd time we express our concern that the people of our country are being constrained in their democratic rights to protest this engagement as it potentially grows into a major war.

The members of IPAN request that findings of the investigation by the Department of Defence into the actions of members of the ADF at Swan Island be made public.

All roads privatised proposal

Of course this means that:

1) The roads will be sold off cheaply to the puppet masters corporations.

2) Roads will not be maintained.

3) No new roads will be built.

4) Your right to travel freely will be gone.

5) The road tolling system will be a means of universal surveillance

 

http://www.news.com.au/finance/money/every-road-in-australia-should-have-tolls-says-report/story-fnagkbpv-1227067053501

 

Of course roads can be built without a government, but why do that when you can get the public to pay for it, and then buy at cents in the dollar from the government you installed into office. Then of course ransom the general public for using  the roads they paid for, that y0u just stole off them.

Need  government to build roads? No. Need a government to then sell your roads to a private corporation? No. Makes you wander why tthe corporation didn't build the roads in the first place. Why not? Not economic, but stealing roads is economic.

NZ mass surveilance operational PM lied

Just a week from election in New Zealand It has been revealed that mass electronic surveillance has been occurring despite government denials.

While in Australian the debate has been about meta data, in New Zealand complete content has been spied on.

https://firstlook.org/theintercept/2014/09/15/new-zealand-gcsb-speargun-mass-surveillance/

John Key New Zealand’s current prime minister and former US federal reserve employee, made specific assurances that such spying was not occurring.

Will this hurt his election chances? Quite likely.

Assange hung out to dry by the left

Assange meme tagged

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)

Sweden’s Political Correctness Insanity

It seems that Julian Assange is not the only victim of Swedish Government Political Correctness. When will people understand that just because something is bad (racism) doing the opposite is not necessarily good (Not allowing an opinion on cultural or religious practices of others.) Just because right -wing neo-con -liberals are assholes, it doesn’t mean that left-wing nut-jobs are not dickheads. It’s a bit like the Israel-Palestine conflict, if you are foolish enough to pick a side there, you haven’t understood the problem.

Let’s just blame white males instead. For everything. Because Hitler was a white male. Therefore….

Or , instead of letting yourself be sucked in emotionally like the Germans under Hitler, you could start to  think for yourself:  In the game of life,  the devil always finds a new disguise, and it’s not necessarily  what  you expect.

 

Here is an update from Pat Condell on the “Insane Asylum” formerly known as Sweden.

Facebook NSA emotional manipulation experiments

Once again Facebook being used against its users, looking more and more like the matrix all the time.

Are you going to wake up once you have to plug a cable directly into your brain to use Facebook?

 

The frog boils slowly.

Happy Independence Day, USA!

Celebrate your freedom as long as you do what we say!
