malcolm_turnbull_2.jpg image The Australian Apron-String Dilemma baz, Tuesday, Mar 14 2017, 11:18pm
Recently, useless Oz PM Malcolm Turnbull, who is DIRECTLY responsible for ALL his party’s DRAMATIC losses in various State elections, lauded the delivery of perhaps the most badly designed, disfunctional, outrageously costly US combat jet fighter ever produced -- the F-35 strike ‘lemon.’ Previous jet fighter models like the F-16 are easily able to blow it out of the sky, notwithstanding that Russian built Sukhois, at a fraction of the cost of the F-35 and (unfortunately) purchased by Australia’s regional neighbours, make mince out of the F-35 in combat.

text The USA is Being Sucked into a Mid-East Vortex of Ruin - as Cheney once Predicted janet, Tuesday, Mar 14 2017, 1:19am
Good military strategists always have a ‘plan B’ as a fall back option if ‘plan A,’ known historically in America as PNAC, fails and FAIL it has, miserably. The entire Middle East is now virtually out of control with western supported proxy fighters changing sides as often as they change their underwear, which some would say is not very often, however, changing flags and rebel leaders is now routine, few in the West know what is really going on, caught up in the delusion that they are in control, well, yes they are, in control of a military interventionist nightmare, fast becoming uncontrollable.

text Recriminations Fly over Failing Western Global Strategies kwang zi, Sunday, Mar 12 2017, 9:42am
While the blinded captured western population is awash with western propaganda and ‘fake news’ the majority of the world’s population in Eurasia are watching their leaders making rapid progress which will soon over-shadow any gains the destructive war mongering west has made, in fact, western strategies for world take-over are unravelling as I write, but not so in Eurasia.

newsilkroads.jpg image Eurasia: The Strategic Triangle that Is Changing the World Federico Pieraccini via claire, Sunday, Mar 12 2017, 4:44am
Away from the current chaos in the United States, major developments are progressing, with Iran, Russia and China coordinating on a series of significant moves crucial for the future of the Eurasian continent. With a population of more than five billion people, constituting about two-thirds of the Earth’s population, the future of humanity passes through this immense area. Signaling a major change from a unipolar world order based on Europe and the United States to a multipolar world steered by China, Russia and Iran, these Eurasian states are carving out a leading role in the development of the vast continent. As part of the challenges faced by these leading multipolar countries, the disruptive events originating in the post-WWII Euro-Atlantic world order will need to be tackled. (story and 1 image)

assange_cypherpunk.jpg image WikiLeaks' Vault 7 -- Timing zed, Sunday, Mar 12 2017, 12:56am
Julian Assange is a curious character with clear martyr complex tendencies, however, he has recently hit hard against his enemy, the USA, which of course has vowed to arrest and place him on trial for breaches of America’s espionage laws, which I should add, should also be applied to US intel agencies as it has become obvious the CIA is in breach of so many local and international communications laws it's outrageous. So let’s apply those laws to a now obviously ROGUE Central Intelligence Agency. (story and 1 image)

text Wikileaks’ Vault 7 exposes the CIA as a Malevolent Disease not an Agency protecting Americans baz, Friday, Mar 10 2017, 6:05am
Do you remember why and how the CIA was formed, to protect America from other STATES which could possibly do it harm. Which means the CIA was initially formed as an international operational espionage and counter-espionage agency. But after William Binney, Ed Snowden and now Julian Assange’s revelations, the CIA is now PUBLIC enemy No. 1. and MUST be completely cleaned out and restored to its former important role, protecting not attacking AMERICANS.

text The Future of Freedom William Binney via shirl, Thursday, Mar 9 2017, 8:29pm
A 36-year veteran of America’s Intelligence Community, William Binney resigned from his position as Director for Global Communications Intelligence (COMINT) at the National Security Agency (NSA) and blew the whistle, after discovering that his efforts to protect the privacy and security of Americans were being undermined by those above him in the chain of command.

A must watch video.

text Total Screen: How Baudrillard Anticipated Trump Pepe Escobar via gail, Thursday, Mar 9 2017, 8:21am
Well, an entertaining and hilarious piece Pepe; stomping around our post-modern world like a drunken elephant becomes you. I think you have found your real calling. Well done and much appreciated as a break from the morbidity of actual reality, as opposed to Baudrillard's re-presentation of himself as an indigo coloured spectacles maker.

"Drunken Nietzsche" indeed, I'm not sure he even indulged, he was too busy going nuts though he contributed much to our latest mis-understanding of subjectivity taken to insane extremes, let's see which of them gets it right in the 'END'. Though I favour Nietzsche, he lived his last thesis as mental implosion, now that's integrity!

The ‘underground’ is swelling with remarkably skilled and talented people, which of course surface culture considers criminals, they should talk! I’m referring to ethical hackers that target and weaken criminal States, especially America, the undisputed leading criminal State in the world today. (story and 1 audio file)

text The ‘Blind, Deaf and Dead’ baz, Tuesday, Mar 7 2017, 7:37pm
Christian theologians should immediately associate the title with the New Testament text, as these words referred to the masses that Jesus considered to be mindless morons, indeed the mythical Jesus was an elitist, plain to see. The references to these unflattering labels are prolific and concerning in the text, especially considering that they all emanated from the mouth of the clearly elitist Christian saviour; and so it becomes apparent that the plague that infects the masses of today was strong some two thousand years past, and beyond in ancient Egypt where an elite system of social rule first appeared in the form of ‘divine’ Pharaohs or God Kings, which facts are also recorded.

text The Deep State vs. President Trump Gary Olson via darcy, Monday, Mar 6 2017, 11:50pm
Corporate media like CNN, MSNBC, The New York Times, The Washington Post, and elements within the intelligence community are singing from the same hymnal in denouncing and demonizing President Trump and are not at all subtle in suggesting that only impeachment can "save democracy." Democratic Party leaders hope to parley this into retaking the White House.

It is clear that a person suffering from NPD would be self-obsessed, however, a president of a nation in decline and turmoil can ill-afford that narcissistic luxury.

text The Pathological Inability of Americans to Accept Criticism russ, Saturday, Mar 4 2017, 1:01am
Remember the little rhyme most of us learned as kids, “sticks and stones will break my bones, but words will never hurt me." Indeed, it was a form of inoculation to verbal abuse learned around the age of five! However, Americans, particularly those in politics, seem to have missed this form of early socialised inoculation, as is clearly evident with Trumple-thin-skin and former president Obama. The verbal slanging matches that characterised the recent presidential campaign were crude, insulting and direct; both Obama and Trump took great offence when exposed to any form of verbal criticism, which extraordinary responses from adults reveals much about American culture, it just can’t take it! Both Obama and Trump visibly trembled with rage over words that most mature adults would have dismissed as ineffectual, but not so those that live in the land of emotional insecurity -- ‘we just can’t take it here, in America.’

I recall a news report some years ago in Australia, which nation’s beach culture is strong. All sorts of competitive beach/surf oriented sports between Surf Life Saving Clubs are a common affair in this nation.
