text Dissonance and Disconnect dulcie, Monday, Feb 27 2017, 10:21pm
The overwhelming majority almost automatically accuse today’s politicians of disconnect, that is, they do not ‘feel’ our pain or represent ‘our’ wishes -- how absolutely vain and narcissistic is this view? It’s all about me, isn’t it? Social media have designed it so. So why are ‘MY’ opinions and beliefs ignored? Answer, because the opinions and beliefs of the scoundrels that lied their way into power matter more, yes, it really is about ME! As is extremely apparent today. The world today is an individual self-serving nightmare on the verge of implosion. Understand if you are capable, that coherence is required for any society to persist.

text The ‘Post Truth’ Fantasy justin, Monday, Feb 27 2017, 10:18am
I had to laugh when the greatest English language torturing nation, America, coined the expression ‘post truth;’ why, because it’s yet another American lie, it implies that a truth age once existed in the past; well, the obvious question is, WHEN?

Former Goldman Sachs banker Turnbull, elitist to the core image The Australian People KNOW when they are getting Shafted, Mr. Turnbull suzie, Sunday, Feb 26 2017, 9:38pm
Indeed, regardless of limited education, class and every other social factor the Australian population has always been acutely aware of hard reality. And that reality under the Libs, is struggle, hardship and NO HOPE of home ownership, while the 1% minority that need it least are gifted $50 billion in tax and other breaks by of course fellow eitist (birds of the feather ...) PM Turnbull -- and this insular clown hopes to survive the wrath of the very hard done by Oz MAJORITY -- in your harbour-side dreams, Mr Turnbull. (story and 1 image)

Well, it's about time someone kicked the outrageously BIASED and information-shaping mainstream media in the teeth, it is well overdue. The CFR led and controlled western mass media (elite owned propaganda apparatus) is so absurdly partial it pains informed people to watch the sewage that spews, non-stop, from its outlets. Trump, for all his faults has done at least one good turn for the American people and western world. And shove it up your coit, CFR! (story and 2 images)

That is if you are a clearly deluded Roman Catholic, and I do not exclude other Christian faiths, as the same could be said about them. Isn’t it about time brainwashed Christian imbeciles (and Muslims) realised that ALL religions are man made FAKE representations of reality. Religions are nothing more than ideological prisons where believers are led by the nose to serve the interests and bank accounts of church leaders. (story and 1 image)

text U.S. Directly Responsible for Millions of Civilian Deaths, numerous Failed States and Mid-East Chaos Danny Sjursen via dan, Thursday, Feb 23 2017, 12:07am
The United States has already lost its war for the Middle East, which couldn’t be clearer to me after having been involved in combat and soldiering in both Iraq and Afghanistan. However, Washington continues with its reality aversion, the hard facts continue to be ignored in favor of mythologizing.

text What’s the real Alternative to Trump? jess, Sunday, Feb 19 2017, 11:34pm
The western media is doing a fine job of distracting the masses as usual. Almost the entire western media apparatus is saturated with Trump this, and Trump that, fiasco, they’re having a field day. Indeed, Trump is anything but settling, however, the shrill screams of the media, all aimed at eliminating Trump, offer or suggest no viable alternatives and that is the major problem, as the existing alternative is the deep state/establishment and status quo, and that is precisely what the masses voted AGAINST. So take a deep breath and step back from the media induced hysteria and THINK!

The news of the forced resignation of National Security Adviser Michael Flynn, due to the scandal that he, as a private citizen, spoke to the Russian ambassador in December after President Barack Obama issued sanctions on Russia for their aggressive behavior, has rocked the Donald Trump Presidency.

text Social Engineering is Easy as Mind is a Cultural Product gemma, Friday, Feb 17 2017, 11:44pm
For those not familiar with the concept of mind a brief explanation is warranted -- put simply but accurately mind is its content, thought, and all thought symbols, 'language,' are culturally derived; mind cannot be separated from thought, a fact which anyone can prove for themselves -- simply sit quietly and cease thinking; it will take a little time to reach quietude; however, once quietude is achieved your inherent consciousness, which nature/the cosmos provides, as completely distinct from the culturally manufactured mind, is able to express itself in all its limitless, harmonious, knowing, glory.

Turnbull image Trump views Australia as Insignificant cyd, Thursday, Feb 16 2017, 11:31pm

Reactive, imbecile Trump tells truth about America’s regard for Australia, insignificant! Referring to the call between himself and Oz PM Malcolm ‘useless’ Turnbull, the US president, regarded the call as “unimportant”, which view is clearly a smack in the gob of Mr harbour side mansion, supreme narcissist, Turnbull -- you’ve really got to laugh when two distinctly flawed personalities lock weenies.

text Worst Joke Ever - US Spy Chief Gives Saudi Prince Highest Award for 'Fighting Terrorism' Mike Whitney via cyd, Tuesday, Feb 14 2017, 9:06pm
On Friday, the Director of the CIA, Mike Pompeo, used his first trip abroad to present Saudi Arabia’s Crown Prince Mohammed bin Nayef with the CIA’s highest award for fighting terrorism, the George Tenet Medal. Although the ceremony wasn’t covered by any of the major media, it was picked up on various blogsites where the news was greeted with predictable howls of outrage. Not surprisingly, most American’s still see Saudi Arabia as the epicenter of global terrorism, a point which was underlined in a recent article at The Atlantic titled “Where America’s Terrorists Actually Come From”. Here’s an excerpt:

text Trump Will Spark a War With Iran – Which is Great News for Isis Patrick Cockburn via gus, Monday, Feb 13 2017, 9:38pm
President Trump made great play when he came into office with his return of a bust of Winston Churchill to the Oval Office, presenting the move as a symbol of his admiration for adamantine patriotic resolve in pursuit of patriotic ends. Presumably, Trump was thinking of Churchill in 1940, not Churchill in 1915-16 when he was the leading advocate of the disastrous Gallipoli campaign in which the Turks decisively defeated the British army with great slaughter.

Useless image Oz Parliament Resumes and it’s back to Kindy Politics darcy, Friday, Feb 10 2017, 10:53pm
You would think Canberra pollies have learned, not least from the plummeting support from the Australian people, which are so sick and tired of major party petty, UNPRODUCTIVE, personal political attacks and being ignored that a tidal wave of disgruntled response is hurtling toward the political capital, which, when it surely strikes, would see both major parties completely devastated.
