text Forget it! claire, Sunday, Feb 18 2018, 9:57pm
There is no “We the People ...,” perhaps there never was, but what is starkly evident today is that the USA is ruled by non-representative forces that use presidents as puppets and governments as toys.

One need not split hairs over the causes of chaos, instability and destruction in the world today. The cause is as obvious as dog’s balls. Avaricious pigs rule the world, plain to see.

John Winthrop, self-righteous, intolerant bigot and religious fanatic image American History for Truthdiggers: Roots in Religious Zealotry Maj. Danny Sjursen via jill, Sunday, Feb 18 2018, 2:27am
Truthdig editor’s note: The past is prologue. The stories we tell about ourselves and our forebears inform the sort of country we think we are and help determine public policy. As our current president promises to “Make America great again,” this moment is an appropriate time to reconsider our past, look back at various eras of United States history and re-evaluate America’s origins. When, exactly, were we “great”? (story and 1 image)

text Today’s Post-Real World janice, Saturday, Feb 17 2018, 10:10pm
Since acclaimed literary critic, theorist and analyst Roland Barthes announced the death of the author, back in 1977, he knowingly and to an extent, unknowingly, predicted/pre-empted the post-reality/postmodern world we live in today, which I would name as the ‘Post-Real’ world in which reality is determined by the reader or interpreter of cultural signs, (language) symbols, images, including phenomenological material signs and symbols, like buildings, vehicles, cats, dogs, etc, etc, as cultural discourse, because all these artefacts SPEAK to us as language which must be interpreted.

PM Malcolm Turnbull (left) and deputy Barnaby Joyce, two FAILED leaders image “Inept” -- Deputy Oz PM Joyce Attacks PM Turnbull james, Thursday, Feb 15 2018, 7:27pm
Well, as predicted the scandal assailed deputy PM Barnaby Joyce certainly didn’t need any help destroying what was left of his career -- his reputation and social standing is already shattered beyond repair. Joyce is now in full self-destruct mode and any support he may have had would wither as a result of his latest incredibly idiotic open attack on the PM, though I would add, his accusation is entirely correct, as the PM should have stepped in IMMEDIATELY and forced Joyce to stand aside or resign for the good of the coalition and government. PM Turnbull is clearly the leader you have when you’re not having a leader. (story and 1 image)

text A Dangerous Turn in U.S. Foreign Policy Conn Hallinan via julie, Wednesday, Feb 14 2018, 11:05pm
The Trump administration’s new National Defense Strategy is being touted as a sea change in U.S. foreign policy, a shift from the “war on terrorism” to “great power competition,” a line that would not be out of place in the years leading up to World War I. But is the shift really a major course change, or a re-statement of policies followed by the last four administrations?

text American Culture Indicted -- Yet Another Tragic School Shooting shiela, Wednesday, Feb 14 2018, 7:55pm
America specialises in the killing of INNOCENT civilians world wide -- tens of millions to date -- it is a cultural mindset that has plagued the nation since its war of independence and early genocides of native Americans. Today America exports this poisonous mentality to the wider world, America can infamously boast of approximately 12 million innocent souls murdered in pursuit of PROFIT since the Vietnam war, which, the manic pursuit of profit, was also the main reason for the slaughter of native Americans -- they were simply in the way of ‘progress’ and the interests of the elite few. And so, is the world surprised by the latest school shooting in Florida? Not really.

assange0.jpg image Assange’s Hopes of Freedom Trampled justin, Tuesday, Feb 13 2018, 10:16pm
A UK judge trampled all over Assange’s legal team’s arguments that it was not in the “public interest” to enforce an arrest warrant for Assange for skipping bail. Assange’s completely inept, divorced from REALITY, legal team, argued that his self-incarceration at the Ecuadorian Embassy was punishment enough for skipping bail and that further enforcement of the warrant was a “disproportionate punishment,” which ‘defence’ Judge Emma Arbuthnot stomped all over by stating that Assange was FREE to leave the embassy at any time and face charges in UK courts, which outcomes he could appeal if he chose.

text The FBI and President Trump James Petras via gail, Tuesday, Feb 13 2018, 2:25am
Few government organizations have been engaged in violation of the US citizens’ constitutional rights for as long a time and against as many individuals as the Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI). Seldom has there been greater collusion in the perpetration of crimes against civil liberties, electoral freedom and free and lawful expression as what has taken place between the FBI and the US Justice Department.

Ha, ha, Har, ay! image Barnaby Joyce, the flaming powder keg in the Liberal Ship cyd, Monday, Feb 12 2018, 8:05pm
Barnaby Joyce’s position is untenable regardless of which perspective you take, he MUST resign otherwise the entire party is doomed. However, in view of this searing reality, Turnbull, forever the short-term thinker and political opportunist, cannot let Joyce go as the government would lose its majority. And there lies the hapless conservatives, between a rock and a hard place, damned if they do and damned if they don’t. What better predicament for the lying, elite serving, unrepresentative conservatives to face. (story and 2 images)

text The Big Unraveling justin, Sunday, Feb 11 2018, 6:02pm
Israel has effectively declared war on Syria with intrusions into its sovereign air space and the bombing of Syrian ground targets the Israelis seem to think threaten its existence as a stolen State. So bombs away and to hell with international LAW, which is the point the complicit, corporate western mass media is very careful to AVOID.

text The Political Whores of Washington [and Elsewhere] Susan Trotter via jaxie, Saturday, Feb 10 2018, 7:39pm
It is established fact/REALITY today that people in the western world never get representation. LIARS, deceivers and cheats are elected to office only to openly renege on all their promises and serve minority elite interests. How many more times must we fall for the deceptions of professional rogues, liars and cheats before we wake to the fact that we are all being screwed? Clearly a vote for ANY major party anywhere in the West is a wasted vote; regardless of political stripe the elected always serve minority interests -- and we call this democracy, forced to choose between a vomit and a turd.

googcuffs.jpg image Surveillance Capitalism -- How CIA Supported Google is Tracking Your Every Move jess, Friday, Feb 9 2018, 7:05pm
Google and Facebook's algorithms are insidious and have been proven to be detrimental to youth development and society at large -- in fact, these two CIA supported and shaped mega-IT companies are, as they stand, horrendous threats to the social fabric of any society. They are now engaged in outright censorship of the free flow of information on the internet. This site receives less than 5 unique search hits from Google per month, more often less than 2 -- ridiculous as we are fully aware of SEO methods -- though our sys-admins have successfully compensated for this overt censorship/backgrounding via advanced IT methods and a huge subscriber base and mailing list. Nevertheless, our record from logs over 15 years since the inception of our parent site, easily illustrate Google's unsavoury tactics with sites that do not comply or agree with the government/CFR fake news propaganda discourse.
