“The peoples of Islam will always be closer to us than, for example, France”
Describing the perversion of democracy
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
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.
In response to China’s planned erosion of democratic electoral process in the SAR of Hong Kong (China proposing to only allow their approved candidates to stand for election), an occupation has begun.
The people republic of China has always held democratic reforms as being dangerous and unpalatable and to this day many Chinese residents are completely unaware of the Tienanmen square pro democracy protest from 1989 and the gruesome way in which it ended.
Many of the protesters have taken to wearing eye protection with some using a improvised saran wrap (AKA cling film/ glad wrap) as a ‘better than nothing’ protection from presumably noxious gasses that may be released by authorities to break up the protest.
These guys are smart they are going straight to the heart of the beast, threatening to disrupt banking and finance in Hong Kong.
Occupy Central appears to be under attack from police right now.
Plainly explaining that its not freedom just because someone calls it freedom, it has to have the properties of freedom.
It harks back to Stefan Molyneux’s explanation ‘the world is a farm’ and ‘to know the farm is to leave the farm’.

The UK probably only offered the independence option because they thought it would not be taken up but once international market began to get nervous the hype machine had to get into overdrive to push it back in the box.It would be fair to say neither Scotland nor the UK were completely prepared for Scotland to leave with Scotland holding the oil assets and the (war) ship building, and the UK holding the currency, the pension funds and the national health service (NHS). Sort of like winning the lottery and thinking of leaving your wife only to find out she gets half of everything anyway, and the kids aren’t ready to leave home either.

First election in 8 years Colonel B retains leadership but a veneer of democracy restored, but for how long?
Positive side 8 years and no coup.
Despite mounting evidence of deep corruption in New Zealand political system New Zealand returned a largely unchanged parliament,
and returned John Key formerly of the Federal Reserve Bank of the USA as its leader. The standard you walk past is the standard you accept.
Positive side: all the international based shills will now pull up stakes and fade out of the picture.
Negative side: Hone Harawira, a strong campaigner for the poor, appears to have lost his place in parliament.
And now we get to hear about all the ‘irregularities’ in these polls, will be very interesting.
Fun fact: all of the places discussed were or currently are controlled by the UK in some way.
Bendigo mosque wants to remove restrictions including opening hours, limits on political discussion and a cap on the number of worshipers.
Limiting political discussion in a mosque may be unconstitutional. Sorry I believe the Corneloup case set the precedent for the occupy case, the term burdening as not being interfering, but sure demand a double standard.
Liverpool, Sydney; mosque auctions ISIS flag for $2000. But they try to tell you they are not connected to terrorism.
Underwood, Brisbane; federal police raid Islamic bookstore, firearm seized, apparently a makeshift shooting range was inside. Nine other warrants executed in the Brisbane area.
Currumbin, Gold Coast; Mosque gets approval despite significant protest from locals.
Terror level close to being raised. I wonder why?
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.
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.
After a bit of mainstream media speculation yesterday, whether Julian Assange was about to surrender to British police due to ill health , Assange himself made a statement that he will soon walk out of the Ecuadorian embassy for “other” reasons than the ones given by the media . The British extradition laws have changed, but do apparently not apply to previous cases, so it doesn’t appear that the British goverment will let him walk out officially. So what is the story?
Not that we want to give anything away, but it seems, what Assange is really planning is a good old fashioned “jailbreak!!”
Here is a list of previous suggestions :http://eduncovered.com/trapped-in-the-closet-10-ways-for-julian-assange-to-exit-the-ecuadorian-embassy-2012-08-17
It probably won’t be one of those. Maybe they did build a tunnel with a spoon that leads directly to Ecuador and teleportation is always an option too, but I’m guessing that it will be a surprise, a plot with many twists involving, amongst others, Edward Snowden and German Chancellor Angela Merckel.
If it happens, remember, you read it here first , not on Boing Boing and not in The Age via Boing Boing either…
Good luck, Julian, we wish we could drive the getaway car !
Joe Hockey makes the unsupported claim that poor people drive less and therefore will not suffer from petrol price increases.
While the quotes depicted here lack historical support, they do demonstrate the political figures being so far out of touch they become a liability for everyone including themselves.
