Unclaimed : The Documentary

Special Forces Green Beret Master Sgt. John Hartley Robertson had forgotten how to speak English over the 44 years since he was left behind in the Vietnam War. But he never forgot that he was a father, husband and an American soldier, born in Alabama, shot down over Laos in a 1968 classified mission.

Had Hollywood told the story of the discovery of a long-forgotten soldier, found miraculously still alive in Vietnam after surviving a horrific helicopter attack and crash, it would have involved a dramatic and dangerous jungle rescue followed by a homecoming parade.

Open Your Mind to the New Psychedelic Science

Timothy Leary really screwed things up for science. By abandoning the scientific method for a mystical embrace of hallucinogenic drugs, the Harvard-professor-turned-LSD-evangelist became a symbol of '60s-era drug-fueled degeneracy. Worse, the ensuing backlash pushed these drugs underground and caused an enormously promising field of research to go dormant for nearly half a century.

Or so say some scientists who met in Oakland, California last weekend for a conference on the science and therapeutic potential of psychedelic drugs. "The antics of Timothy Leary really undermined the scientific approach to studying these compounds," psychopharmacologist Roland Griffiths of Johns Hopkins University told the audience.

But the times they are a-changin'. In recent years, a small cadre of scientists has cautiously rekindled the scientific study of psychedelics. At the conference, they reported new findings on how these drugs scramble brain activity in ways that might help explain their mind-bending effects. They're also slowly building a case that these drugs might help people with depression, anxiety and other disorders.

Chemical Weapons Charade in Syria


Editors Note: The wars in Iraq, Libya, and Afghanistan were/are being fought under false pretences. A decade or so later the lies have been exposed. It is amazing that the same tactics to start those wars are being used again. The Australian Government has been complicit in those wars, if only diplomatically. Nevertheless, we are being drawn once again again into the insanity of the excesses of external influences. We must realise that Governments around the world are left to their own devices, until they go against those insane power mad, corrupt, influences that will stop at NOTHING!!! Our time will come...


"Al-Akhbar" - Let us be clear. The United States can verify absolutely nothing about the use of chemical weapons (CWs) in Syria. Any suggestion to the contrary is entirely false.

Don't take it from me here is what US officials have to say about the subject: [ Read more... ]

Everything Is Rigged: The Biggest Price-Fixing Scandal Ever

The Illuminati were amateurs. The second huge financial scandal of the year reveals the real international conspiracy: There's no price the big banks can't fix.

Conspiracy theorists of the world, believers in the hidden hands of the Rothschilds and the Masons and the Illuminati, we skeptics owe you an apology. You were right. The players may be a little different, but your basic premise is correct: The world is a rigged game. We found this out in recent months, when a series of related corruption stories spilled out of the financial sector, suggesting the world's largest banks may be fixing the prices of, well, just about everything.

Have You Read The Australian Constitution?

Most Australians know we have a constitution, but don't have a clue as to what it contains. It is not a subject in schools. And it should be. ALL Australians should have at least a small understanding of what it is about. With a basic understanding of its contents, governments would not be able to get away with much of the legislation that they do now. Maybe that is the reason why it is not taught.

That being said, come September we will be asked to vote in a referendum. We are all duty bound to understand the ramifications of that referendum, here's why... [Read more...],

Freedom v Security

With ANZAC day upon us, and the very last of those who fought that campaign having gone back to the universe. We remember their gallant and heroic deeds. We remember THEM! And rightly so! Many gave their lives, and many suffered horrendous injuries that precluded them from moving on from those dark days brought on by the lords of buffoonery that were the governments of the day. But, in remembering them and their glorious endeavours, do we forget WHAT they were fighting for?

They fought for our freedom, our democracy, our right to free speech. Yet in todays era are those freedoms being eroded clandestinely and covertly by similar government buffoons? [ read more... ]

The Official Tsarnaev Story Makes No Sense

by Craig Murray

There are gaping holes in the official story of the Boston bombings.

We are asked to believe that Tamerlan Tsarnaev was identified by the Russian government as an extremist Dagestani or Chechen Islamist terrorist, and they were so concerned about it that in late 2010 they asked the US government to take action. At that time, the US and Russia did not normally have a security cooperation relationship over the Caucasus, particularly following the Russian invasion of Georgia in 2008. For the Russians to ask the Americans for assistance, Tsarnaev must have been high on their list of worries.

In early 2011 the FBI interview Tsarnaev and trawl his papers and computers but apparently remarkably for somebody allegedly radicalised by internet the habitually paranoid FBI find nothing of concern.

So far, so weird. But now this gets utterly incredible. In 2012 Tamerlan Tsarnaev, who is of such concern to Russian security, is able to fly to Russia and pass through the airport security checks of the world's most thoroughly and brutally efficient security services without being picked up. He is then able to proceed to Dagestan right at the heart of the world's heaviest military occupation and the world's most far reaching secret police surveillance again without being intercepted, and he is able there to go through some form of terror training or further Islamist indoctrination. He then flies out again without any intervention by the Russian security services.

That is the official story and I have no doubt it did not happen. I know Russia and I know the Russian security services. Whatever else they may be, they are extremely well-equipped, experienced and efficient and embedded into a social fabric accustomed to cooperation with their mastery. This scenario is simply impossible in the real world.

We have, by the official account, the involvement of the two Tsarnaev brothers, the FBI and the Russian security services. The FBI have a massive recent record of running agent provocateur operations to entrap gullible Muslims into terrorism. The Russian security services have form on false flag Chechen bombings. Where the truth lies may be difficult to dig out. But the above official version is not true.

Enemies Of The Internet

Era of the digital mercenaries

"My computer was arrested before I was." This perceptive comment was made by a Syrian activist who had been arrested and tortured by the Assad regime. Caught by means of online surveillance, Karim Taymour told a Bloomberg journalist that, during interrogation, he was shown a stack of hundreds of pages of printouts of his Skype chats and files downloaded remotely from his computer hard drive. His torturers clearly knew as much as if they had been with him in his room, or more precisely, in his computer.

Online surveillance is a growing danger for journalists, bloggers, citizen-journalists and human rights defenders. The Spyfiles that WikiLeaks released in 2012 showed the extent of the surveillance market, its worth (more than 5 billion dollars) and the sophistication of its products. [Read more...]

The Tsarnaev Conundrum

by Craig Murray

Cui Bono? Putin. The alleged actions of the Tsarnaev brothers are a massive setback to the cause of Chechen nationalism. The Russian government have been trying for a decade to conflate the repression of Chechen nationalism with the western construct of the 'global war on terror', with very limited diplomatic success.

2081

Based on the short story Harrison Bergeron by celebrated author Kurt Vonnegut, 2081 depicts a dystopian future in which, thanks to the 212th Amendment to the Constitution and the unceasing vigilance of the United States Handicapper General, everyone is finally equal...

The strong wear weights, the beautiful wear masks and the intelligent wear earpieces that fire off loud noises to keep them from taking unfair advantage of their brains. It is a poetic tale of triumph and tragedy about a broken family, a brutal government, and an act of defiance that changes everything.

Featuring an original score performed by the world-renowned Kronos Quartet (Requiem for a Dream) and narration by Academy Award Nominee Patricia Clarkson (Far From Heaven, Goodnight and Good Luck), 2081 stars James Cosmo (Braveheart, Trainspotting, Narnia), Julie Hagerty (Airplane!, What About Bob?) and Armie Hammer (Justice League).

The City of Marion Is Ready!!!

With King Kong's Bum readying his troops and missiles in North Korea, the residents of Marion decided they should respond.

Not wanting to give away any strategic locations or tactical plans, I'll just say in a side street running next to the Harvy Norman store on Marion Road, and camouflaged under some gum trees that are located adjacent to the Marion RSL the locals have positioned the best (mobile) ballistic launchers they can find.


One veteran told me 'We knew John Howard's buy back was bullshit, he offered us Sweet FA for them. In fact the Hells Angels offered us more, but we refused their offer. The Council refused to take them in the hard rubbish collection, so we kept them in a shed out the back. We knew they'd come in handy one day. Mind you it wasn't easy positioning them, we all had to go shopping at Woolies together so we could get 8c a litre off the diesel. The bloody thing used 100 litres, and we only moved it a few hundred yards. Also we're a bit short on ammo, so we're doing a bottle run to buy some. Anyway we're as ready as we can be. Just hope the shit doesn't hit the fan tomorrow."
