Send Barnaby to Indonesia
It is a pity that Barnaby Joyce, a man of tact, diplomacy, nuance and subtlety, isn’t going to Indonesia to fix things up. I know I am disappointed that Barnaby is missing out on this great opportunity, and I am sure the Indonesians feel the same way. [Sarcasm alert.] (0)



Why do they really hate us Senator Brandis?

You have to admire the Abbott Government’s chutzpah.

Islamic State released a statement calling on believers to kill, among others, Australians. On the 7.30 Report Attorney-General George Brandis explained that they hate us for our democracy, our freedoms, our respect for women.

The nationalities Islamic State named were Americans or Europeans – especially the accursed French – or Australians or Canadians.

Why is that Senator Brandis? Could it be perhaps because these nations are the ones re-invading Iraq?

Maybe they hate us Senator Brandis because the last time we invaded, in 2003, about 1.5 million Iraqis died as a result? The number continues to rise. Maybe they hate us because the puppet regime we imposed on them was a sectarian Shia dictatorship over Sunnis? Maybe they hate us because we are invading them again. And killing women and children. Again.

And maybe, just maybe, they hate us because when Israel slaughtered 2000 Palestinians, mostly women and children, last month, the Australian government cheered ‘our’ mass murderers on. Maybe they hate us because we support the West’s attack dog in the Middle East and the genocide of Palestinians it is carrying out and has been carrying out since before 1948?

Maybe just maybe they hate us because every time they rise up against hated Western backed dictators and fight for freedom, we manoeuvre to support the next strong man who will protect our interests, not theirs?

Moir captures it:

To that list you can also add Australia’s intervention in East Timor.

Osama Bin Laden himself spoke of ‘Australian crusaders’ in East Timor.

I think it is largely about the federal government continuing in its attempts to take away our democratic rights, because they are the marionettes of the UN.

This morning I saw Christine Legarde (not sure of spelling) from the IMF on ABC24. She was calling for unions and business to work together to achieve labour market reforms. I took this to mean the abolition of penalty rates and reduction of wages and working conditions for the western world.

I think almost everything we see happening today is connected with globalisation and the empowerment of corporates.

The more the UN and individual governments ramp up racial and religious hatreds, the better their chances of outlawing religion altogether, in their ongoing quest to create an homogeneous society which is genderless, raceless, religionless etc.

I recommend that everyone sees this new movie: “The Giver” which is about a strictly controlled artificial society in which everyone has injections each morning to control/negate their emotions.

Then weight this against the latest medical information that says that 50% of Australians suffer from some form of mental illness.
