    I don’t know who writes the big bold faced headlines for this website. But to say that the game is over .. is just like saying… it’s like saying something totally ridiculous. In fact, it is totally ridiculous. There is all kinds of time left on the clock, I hope. So there’s more game. Let’s say more people get clued in to the corruption in the system. What then? It’s still not over, is it? Let’s say they start acting and rebelling and living with their own sets of common sense rules. It’s hardly over then either. I’m glad the alternative media is coming along. I like Mister Max here, quite a lot, even enough to tolerate his inadequacies, which are as substantial as my own or anybody’s. But, let’s fact it, nothing is nearly over. But maybe this is just a tactic in the game.

    haven’t seen it yet, but just looking at the pictures – Assange looks pasty and put on a few pounds – he needs to get out of house arrest.

    Glenn Greenwald’s article, “Attacks on RT and Assange reveal much about the critics”, is worth a read. http://www.salon.com/2012/04/18/attacks_on_rt_and_assange_reveal_much_about_the_critics/singleton/

    American/TSA Insanity Update
    —————————————–

    A 49-year-old American man became so fed up with airport screening that he stripped naked at Portland International Airport security checkpoint, police said.
    Some passengers covered their own eyes, as well as their children’s, during the Tuesday evening incident, a Port of Portland Police report said, while others “stepped out of the screening lanes to look, laugh and take photos.”

    Good interview. I thought it was a so-so but promising first-time outing — that was still heads and shoulders above what the corporate media now offers in the U.S. Greenwald’s article gives a few good side comments on the strengths/weaknesses of RT, too.

    http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=GDLXPpooA18

    It is becoming very hard to tell what is real with all the media chaos and disinfo. I believe Assange is real and it was a good thought-provoking interview. SLA has always been 100% (real) physical silver “taking physical silver off the market” -that message has never changed and never will. A true SLA stacker knows with 100% confidence that their energies in taking down the fiat criminal terrorists is true, honorable and just. We will and are winning these fiat wars. Oz by Oz the SLA is destroying the fiat terrorists by staying true and 100% physical.

    America has the open corruption model. You ask people to vote for somebody but at the end you don’t do what the people/voters want but what the guy who paid you wants.

    To me this looks ridiculous but Americans accept this model as perfectly normal. Beats me. Can’t help them.

    @Harry – Julian Assange appeared at last year’s Brighton Festival via video link. So he is available.
    I watched the BBC news bulletin the other night; first time I’ve watched the whole thing for about a year. I found it really embarrassing. I am a journalist (trade press, not news) so quite alarmed at what’s happening in the mainstream news media. Ofcom took Press TV off the air and I wouldn’t put it past them to do the same with RT on some flimsy premise.

    The increase of yuan in circulation accounted for 52% of global M2 growth in 2011.

    From: China hints at new monetary easing (Link above)

    I think this serves two objectives:
    1 – Keeping the Yuan low despite the slightly broadening of yuan’s bandwidth
    2 – Have more Yuan in circulation to challange the dollar

    @MirrorMirror

    I think that M&S are the only ones believing in AGW together with a friend who told them so. In order to keep that friendship they have to endorse AGW or lose a friend.

    Since they are friendly people they rather endorse AGW :)

    Lawyers’ groups have reacted angrily to an immigration incident involving an Australian lawyer for Wikileaks founder Julian Assange.

    Jennifer Robinson, who has represented Mr Assange in his British legal challenge against extradition to Sweden, says she was stopped at London’s Heathrow airport and told she couldn’t board a plane to Australia until she was cleared by the Australian High Commission there.

    Using Twitter, she said: “Just delayed from checking in at LHR [London Heathrow Airport] because I’m apparently ‘inhibited’ – requiring approval from Australia House… to travel.”

    She then tweeted directly to the Department of Foreign Affairs and Trade, asking: “Please explain: What is the ‘inhibited’ travel list? And why am I now apparently on it?”

    ‘Extraordinary’

    Mr Barns said he had never heard of such a list.

    “This is just extraordinary that a lawyer, acting for a client would be placed on such a list and the Australian government – if it doesn’t have anything to do with it, needs to get an explanation from the UK government and that explanation needs to be made public,” Mr Barns said.

    There has, in addition, been speculation in legal circles that Ms Robinson’s involvement with the case of Bradley Manning in the United States – the soldier alleged to have leaked secret US cables to Wikileaks – or her involvement with human rights cases in Indonesia’s Papua provinces, may have been factors in the Heathrow incident.

    The term inhibited appears to be used US security agencies.

    According to a US department of homeland security document, dated October 28, 2008 and uncovered by Crikey journalist Bernard Keane, “inhibited status” is a US security term.

    Assange having a program on RT and if he takes it seriously which it seems he has it will grown into something very big for the network. Hopefully his house arrest doesn’t prove to be too much of a limitation. Good for RT for having the courage to try something like this.

    Great to see the MSM reaction that this bold move by RT provoked again revealing what a pathetic pack of shills they are.

    The only problem I have with the Assange program is that it preempted their best Tuesday program in the 8:30 EST slot namely the Keiser Report. Not good scheduling by RT. The Keiser Report is still on at 5:30 on Tuesday but the 8:30 time is very convenient. I called RT-America about it and hopefully they’ll do something about it.

  32. Paul says:

    dg,

    You are absolutely right! Alyona Minkovski has been on top of the cyber intell issues for a long time and has done some excellent reporting and interviews on the subject on her program. Thom Hartmann on his program has done some outstanding work in this area too.

    MSM OTOH – as your survey shows – Nada!

  33. gold bullet says:

    @Paul @dg

    While you are both correct, the best site for coverage on CISPA is Techdirt dot com. They have really been on top of this quite outrages bill proposal and why it is really bad. I’m sure that RT and Alyona base a lot of their coverage of CISPA on Techdirt articles.

    To illustrate here is the most important Techdirt article on CISPA, IMHO:

    CISPA Is A Really Bad Bill, And Here’s Why

    @hmck: thanks for the mention of the Brighton Festival video link.
    I was thinking about inviting Julian to speak @ ohm2013.
    See ohm2013.org and the wiki.
    See https://har2009.org/program/events/160.en.html for the previous speaking arrangement. There is video of this appearance on youtube (wikileaks har2009 video).
    A lot has happened since 2009 so maybe Julian would like to speak about that…

    Any alternative news media that targets out-of-control big government, the counterfeiting of money by monetary authority, the attack upon sovereign nations by financial interests using financial weapons of mass destruction, the Elitist Agenda 21 for restricting the movements and confining people, and in general all the efforts by the insane oligarchy to rule the world with their New World Order, would probably do well.
    Anarchists who believe in peaceful living based on natural law certainly have no problem with the alternative news media. The insane oligarchs think they can build the world they want from the chaos they intentionally created for that purpose. But they miscalculated because there are people who thrive on chaos, and having already exposed themselves, the insane oligarchs will become just so much rotten meat when those who really know how to use chaos go on the offensive.

    ”Falkvinge exclusive: Battle for internet on, Big Brother at the gate”

    https://rt.com/news/internet-freedom-future-falkvinge-342/

    ”The battle over control of the internet is not just about the freedom of speech, but our global future. It is the choice between a Big Brother and democracy unseen before, insists Rick Falkvinge, the founder of the Swedish Pirate Party.”

  40. Robert Mockan says:

    @ Tamir

    The stripper has the right idea. Use chaos to advantage. The insane oligarch plans are based on generating cognitive and affective dissonance then using the resultant confusion and despondency to force through new social control mechanisms by governments, the fascist corporations, religious institutions, and monetary authority. Resistance to the efforts of the insane can be mounted by utilizing chaos to advantage, and going on the attack. For example: All men when going through TSA checkpoints wear metal cock rings. This will set off metal detectors and they will be FORCED to strip naked. Thus we have thousands of naked men at air terminals across the nation. But do not stop there. When they are naked the men then say they want to have sex with President Obama, because they know he is a closet gay. The men describe in intimate detail how they want to satisfy their “glorious leader”. Make comments of like nature about all the insane oligarch followers installed into positions of power in government and the monetary “authority”, at every opportunity. And laugh. Laugh AT the TSA agents for having their clothes on. Call the women fat and obese. Call the men ugly with small balls. The naked men ridicule them, for wearing clothes to hide their inadequacies. In other words, USE the chaos to advantage , for publicity. The alternative media picks up on this. Obama would not be re-elected. Attack all the other candidates the same way, except for Ron Paul. Do not vote at all unless Ron Paul is the candidate for president. These kind of actions are “peaceful civil disobedience”, but can be effective. Ultimately of course the insane oligarchs must be destroyed. But meanwhile their attempts at global domination can be seriously compromised by the proper application of using chaos.
