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.

Happy 3rd Anniversary to Occupy Melbourne

Tagged cardboard boxes form Treasury gardens.

Tagged cardboard boxes from Treasury gardens.

Its hard to believe its been 3 years. Somehow it seems longer, somehow it feels shorter.

What has changed in that time, the federal government changed from Labour to Liberal and nothing changed for the better, because while a government allows a reserve bank to exist the reserve bank is in control, not the government.

We learned about the illogical and poisonous aspects of the political left.

We learned about how the political right are complete sold out to large corporations.

We learned about how the laws that give fiat currency value are just as corrupt and hollow as the fake money it supports.

We learned its an information war, a battle for the hearts and minds of the people.

We changed the conversation, we got people talking about things they never talked about before, or were even afraid to talk about.

We put up with a lot of hardships, the harassment from Victoria Police, Melbourne City Council, and agent  provocateurs, it was tiring, cold , wet and messy and at times dangerous.

BUT, it was totally worth it.

 

We went through as lot to spread a message but it’s up to you to hear the message and act upon it accordingly.

 

Good Luck.

XBOX and Cheezles

If corporations hadn't taken over politics there might be such a promotion. sadly there is not.

Queensland cop caught stealing on video on duty

Of course the cop was never charged for the offense of stealing $1000 from an old woman while raiding her house for allegedly selling cannabis.

 

Shane Allan Sterling a detective with Queensland police steal $1000 from a house being raided. He was unwittingly caught on security cameras and later dismissed. Check the date stamp exactly 6 months before Christmas. An anti Christmas?

Shane Allan Stirling, reputation ruined.

Climate what?

 

Caution actual science content, may cause cognitive dissonance!

Huge number of ill informed people have been very excited about planetary temperatures recently. It’s surprising they care about something so much without knowing the basic facts about it.

For people who think the earth is only a few thousand years old.

For people who think the earth is only a few thousand years old.

 

 

So today’s temperatures is nothing remarkable,  considering the last few thousand years there have been 5 significant warmer periods. There is even poetry from the medieval period lamenting about crop failure from climate cooling. They used to grow lots of grapes in England when it was warm there, so many streets are called ‘vine street’  no grape vines have grown there for hundreds of years. Look at the warming between 1600 and 1850, a long time before the large scale burning of oil, so clearly that wasn’t the cause. Since 1998 the world appears to have been cooling. If this doesn’t make sense, maybe you theory is wrong.

 

 

For people who believe the world is billions of years old.

For people who believe the world is billions of years old.

 

Those dinosaurs, gee its been getting colder since they died out, yeah for the last 60- 100 million years or so. In the 1970’s scientist were very concerned with a coming ice age, you can see why they might have been worried about future cooling if you consider this chart.

 

So there you have it, believe in a world a few thousand years old or billions of years old,

sudden heating caused by people is not likely nor realistic.

TV is mind control

 

Before there are calls of conspiracy theory, the footage analyzed is available and the existence of the mind control program called MKULTRA is well known.

So obey and reproduce and everything will be fine.

Steven Molyneux on Robin Williams Suicide

Of the 1.5 million worldwide violent deaths annually, more than half, about 800 000 people, are suicides, mostly amongst the elderly. Anti depression medication, especially SSRIs has been linked to increased risk of suicide and also, Parkinson’s disease, which Robin Williams is said to have been in the early stages of.

Steven Molyneux makes the connection in this clip:

Summing Up Politics

What this chart demonstrates is the basic truth that evil resides not on the left or the right, but in the extremes of left and right. Ultimately they become the same things, hence we see the alliance between extreme Marxism and Islamo-fascism (because the line is actually a circle , which like the earth itself has a dark side and a sunny side)). However, in the middle things can get so mixed up that there remains very little difference between the sides, which annoys the people on the extreme end of the spectrum endlessly.

It’s possible to add anrchism and libertarianism at the front, providing the ultimate in freedom, but maybe that is not what most people want.

The equilibrium between the left and the right is shifting constantly, that is the nature of politics. For example, Angela Merckel, chancellor of Germany has achieved this equilibrium and is the most popular German chancellor ever (with both sides) However, her success is now being criticized (by some) for stifling debate, which is the mainstay of a true democracy. One could also argue that the woman is a genius who is flexible enough to accept necessary changes while steering a straight course. She is holding the reins not to tight and not too loose.

From an esoteric viewpoint, polarity is what creates the world. Without polarity, positive and negative, yin and yang, night and day, good and evil , the world would simply cease to exist.

In centre the fight becomes a game of wits, at extremes it becomes a battle of life and death.

Where do you stand?

Fascinating

This will piss off all the right people!

Is there anybody in the world not offended by this, apart from Russians? Good, I’m glad you are offended.

Two dead in NZ govt welfare office shooting

New Zealand a place where crime was rare, then it was only violent crime being rare, then only knife rare, then finally crime was as commonplace as anywhere else.

What happened, Neo-con’s took over and made poverty and unemployment an economic goal.

Then desperation and violence became the norm.

For reference Ashburton is 86 Km south of Christchurch (the lump on the right hand side of the south island) which had large earthquakes a few years ago.

Ashburton was also  once home the the Minister of social welfare and later Prime Minister Jenny Shipley who played a decisive hand in cuts to welfare throughout the 1990’s.

Aramoana incident (mass shooting) occurred in the early 1990’s as the new wave of welfare cuts came in. This incident bore some similarities (13 dead) to the official narrative of the Port Arthur massacre, crazed white male loner with lots of guns and had a shooting spree.
