PM Sends Message Of Support To All Residents of Albury Affected By The Earthquake

Published by Anonymous (not verified) on Thu, 23/09/2021 - 8:28am in

Prime Minister for Sydney Scott Morrison has taken time away from his American jaunt to send a message of support to residents of the NSW Victoria border town of Albury who were affected by yesterday’s earthquake.

To the people of Albury I just want you to know that your Prime Minister is here for you,” said the PM. ”Admittedly, I’m not there physically but mentally I am there.”

”As we speak I am looking at having resources from other parts of Australia redirected to NSW to help with the recovery.”

When asked why he was so focused on Albury and NSW rather than Melbourne where the actual earthquake did the most damage, the PM said: ”I reject the premise of your question.”

”May I remind you and the people of Victoria that we are all this together.”

”Now, if you’ll excuse me, I am trying to contact the President of France. No luck with the telephone thus far so I might do as Barnaby suggested and send him a French letter.”

It’s no surprise that Biden said no, but welcome nonetheless

Poor old Boris Johnson. All he ever wanted was a picture of himself in the White House as Prime Minister and first he was forced to have a meeting with the Vice-President and wear a mask, as if he was not allowed onto the main set without proving his worth.

Then he had to meet Biden and not Trump, who he would have very much preferred.

After that, he was told he could not have a trade deal as despite all his fawning in the AUKUS deal we are not a US priority. Those who do not want chlorinated chicken should be very relieved.

And then he was told to keep his hands off Northern Ireland and that he should stick to the protocols he has signed, which he now deeply regrets and wants to change.

Biden is deeply pro-Irish. What Johnson ever thought he was going to win from him when Johnson is so reckless with the future of that island is very hard to imagine. But at least Biden stuck to his guns, and Johnson looks like he will come home pretty much empty-handed.

It was all meant to be so easy post-Brexit. The reality is that it is anything but. And sometime this message will eventually sink in with everyone except, perhaps, the rump that is now called the Tory party.

PM’s Creepy Mate Asks Him To Bring Back Some Duty Free Ivermectin

Published by Anonymous (not verified) on Tue, 21/09/2021 - 7:00am in

Prime Minister Scott Morrison’s creepy mate George Christensen has asked him to bring back some duty free Ivermectin when the PM returns from his trip to America.

”George is a good bloke. He did offer to drop me at the airport, but it turns out he had an important lockdown protest to attend,” said the PM. ”He did ask me to bring back some duty free Ivermectin though.”

”Lucky he didn’t ask me to bring back any duty free Tia Maria though, as I thought I might grab a bottle or two of that for Jen.”

When asked why he refused to pull his creepy mate George Christensen into line over his anti-lockdown and anti-science stance, the PM said: ”I reject the premise of your question.”

”No one is tougher on old mate George than myself. Why, just the other day he ate the last chicken wing and I was the first to admonish him.”

”Now, if you’ll excuse me, it’s a long flight to America and I need to pick up some reading material for the trip. Christian Porter recommended me this great book on blind trusts that sounds interesting.”

Politics, USA

Acting Prime Minister Barnaby Joyce has celebrated his first day of covering for Scott Morrison by declaring that: ”We’re all gonna get laid!”

”Australia take note, with Barnaby in charge the good times will roll,” said the acting PM. ”Sure, Scott is only away for a week or two but you can do a lot in that time.”

”Heck, we might have to hire more staffers to work under me.”

When asked for comment on the decision of Christian Porter to resign due to his blind trust, the acting PM said: ”What does the PM usually say, I reject your premises, or something like that?”

”Anyway, Christian’s gone to the back bench and who knows? He might do a Barnaby and make a triumphant return at some stage.”

”Now, if you’ll excuse me, I need to go and press the flesh so to speak with all the new female parliamentary staffers.”

PM Declares New Submarines Will Be Paid For By A Blind Trust

Published by Anonymous (not verified) on Thu, 16/09/2021 - 8:28am in

Prime Minister for Sydney that fellow from Australia Scott Morrison has today announced that Australia’s new nuclear submarines will be paid for by a blind trust to be administered by the alleged Minister for Industry Christian Porter.

”How good is it to have a new fleet of distractions, er, submarines coming to Australia? Asked the PM. ”It was a real treat to get a call from President Biden today. After we established that I was the Australian Prime Minister and not the Austrian one, we had a good old chat about under water matters.”

”President Jo loved it when I told him that this deal definitely TRUMPS all others, poor guy couldn’t speak for a few minutes. All he could do was sigh.”

When asked why the Government feels the need to pay for the Submarines with a blind trust, the Prime Minister said: ”I reject the premise of your question.”

”As it stands there is nothing wrong with a blind trust. I have asked my team to investigate them and until they release the results of that investigation sometime in 2035 they shall be able to be used.”

”Now, if you’ll excuse me, I need to go and set up a blind trust to take care of any future bills I may receive from Engadine Maccas.”

1971-2021: 50 Years Since the USA Reneged on Bretton Woods

Published by Anonymous (not verified) on Thu, 19/08/2021 - 5:26am in

For the CWO, and indeed the entire political tendency to which we belong, it is axiomatic that we are living through capitalism’s third global economic crisis. For over a century the economic system (mode of production) which was once progressive for humanity, in that it created the material possibility of a prosperous world community without national borders or class divisions, has represented a barrier to human progress when it is not a direct threat to human existence itself.

You Need To Understand That The US Is The Most Tyrannical Regime On Earth

Published by Anonymous (not verified) on Sat, 14/08/2021 - 10:56am in

Listen to a reading of this article:

https://medium.com/media/5b6a2a6b75e8a9935e7dfeec026fe53e/href

You get a lot of moral clarity when you realize that the US government is the most despotic and corrupt regime on the entire planet by a very wide margin. This clarity informs your perspective in a way that helps you see through a lot of the propaganda narratives that are laid over the public’s vision about what’s going on in our world.

Whenever I say the US is the most tyrannical regime on earth I get a lot of objections from people, and these are always people who simply haven’t thought very hard about the horrific realities of US foreign policy. Sure you can name some governments who are more brutal and oppressive toward their own citizenry than Washington, but you can’t name any who are more brutal and oppressive overall when you zoom out and look at the big picture.

The United States is currently circling the planet with hundreds of military bases and waging wars which have killed millions and displaced tens of millions just since the turn of this century. Its sanctions and blockades are starving people to death en masse every single day. It works to destroy any nation which disobeys its dictates by toppling their governments via CIA coups, proxy armies, partial and full-scale invasions, and the most egregious number of election interferences in the entire world.

function notifyResize(height) {height = height ? height : document.documentElement.offsetHeight; var resized = false; if (window.donkey && donkey.resize) {donkey.resize(height);resized = true;}if (parent && parent._resizeIframe) {var obj = {iframe: window.frameElement, height: height}; parent._resizeIframe(obj); resized = true;}if (window.location && window.location.hash === "#amp=1" && window.parent && window.parent.postMessage) {window.parent.postMessage({sentinel: "amp", type: "embed-size", height: height}, "*");}if (window.webkit && window.webkit.messageHandlers && window.webkit.messageHandlers.resize) {window.webkit.messageHandlers.resize.postMessage(height); resized = true;}return resized;}twttr.events.bind('rendered', function (event) {notifyResize();}); twttr.events.bind('resize', function (event) {notifyResize();});if (parent && parent._resizeIframe) {var maxWidth = parseInt(window.frameElement.getAttribute("width")); if ( 500 < maxWidth) {window.frameElement.setAttribute("width", "500");}}

There is no other government on earth about which you can say anything like any of these things. No other government on earth is doing anything which rises to this level of evil. Not Iran, not North Korea, not Russia or China or any of the other big scary boogeymen we’re told we must be afraid of my the mass media. You can argue that other governments have perpetrated comparable evils in the past, but you cannot argue that any of them are doing so currently. In our present reality as it actually exists, the United States is the worst monster, and it’s not even close.

There’s really no counter-argument to this. Even if you’re an intellectual six year-old and still believed in 2021 that the US uses its military for beneficent purposes, the fact that we now know the US military just wasted trillions of dollars and thousands of lives on a 20-year war which accomplished literally nothing besides making horrible people rich and lied to the world about it the entire time should dispel that childish delusion once and for all.

The fact that the US happens to export the bulk of its tyranny outside of its borders (though certainly not all of it) doesn’t change the fact that it is more tyrannical than any other government. This just means its tyranny dominates the entire world instead of a single nation.

And ordinary Americans don’t even get anything out of it. It would be bad enough if they were consenting to their government committing murderous piracy around the world because all that theft was enriching their lives and making Americans the wealthiest, happiest and healthiest people on earth, but it isn’t. Americans experience some of the world’s worst wealth inequality without any of the social safety nets afforded to people in every other developed nation, so they’re not even getting a slice of the piracy pie. They only consent to their government being the most despotic regime on earth because they are propagandized.

So in this sense all the accusations the US and its allies make against governments which refuse to bow to Washington are in reality a kind of whataboutism. “Whataboutism” is a word empire apologists constantly bleat whenever you point out that the US is perpetrating some version of an abuse it accuses another government of perpetrating (and it always is), but in reality they’re the ones using accusations to try and distract the conversation from what it should actually be about: the most tyrannical and abusive government on earth.

There is no legitimate reason to focus on the abuses of any other power structure as long as the US and its allies are committing vastly worse atrocities. The most powerful and destructive government on earth should be receiving far more criticism than any other, but instead, because its propaganda dominates the world, it actually receives far less criticism. Being clear on this gross imbalance and the need to correct it is instructive for anyone with their eyes open, because it shows where your efforts and opposition should be directed.

Afghanistan Proves The US Military Needs Its Budget Slashed To Ribbons

Published by Anonymous (not verified) on Thu, 12/08/2021 - 9:19am in

Listen to a reading of this article:

https://medium.com/media/14f5734fab4ba8d93c87545b3a307187/href

US officials are telling the press that Kabul will fall to the Taliban within 90 days and perhaps within the month as US troops withdraw from the war-torn nation.

“One official, who like others spoke on the condition of anonymity due to the issue’s sensitivity, said Tuesday that the U.S. military now assesses a collapse could occur within 90 days. Others said it could happen within a month,” reports The Washington Post. “Some officials said that although they were not authorized to discuss the assessment, they see the situation in Afghanistan as more dire than it was in June, when intelligence officials assessed a fall could come as soon as six months after the withdrawal of the U.S. military.”

Meanwhile the US is still raining down explosives and murdering Afghan civilians to temporarily slow the inevitable Taliban takeover long enough for the Biden administration to have its ridiculous 9/11 “victory” party. Biden has said the US will continue providing “air support” (imperialist for bombing campaigns) to the Afghan government, for however long that government exists.

This is an unforgivable outrage that cries out to the heavens for vengeance. Not the Taliban takeover; that was always the inevitable result of letting Afghanistan be controlled by Afghans. I’m talking about the invasion and 20-year occupation of that nation by the US and its allies.

It is only by the most aggressive narrative management and journalistic malpractice that people around the world are not calling for the heads of the architects of this occupation. For twenty years the world was systematically lied to that the US coalition was building a government and military that could stand on its own, and that this goal was right around the corner and just needs a little more time. Now it’s crunch time, and we learn that what they’ve been building in Afghanistan this entire time was a fake movie set made of cardboard.

The cost of that fake movie set? More than two trillion dollars, and hundreds of thousands of human lives.

This should be an international scandal for which scores of people should be sentenced to spend the rest of their lives behind bars. More than this, every military which participated in this unforgivable crime should have its budget slashed to a tiny fraction of what it is.

body[data-twttr-rendered="true"] {background-color: transparent;}.twitter-tweet {margin: auto !important;}

function notifyResize(height) {height = height ? height : document.documentElement.offsetHeight; var resized = false; if (window.donkey && donkey.resize) {donkey.resize(height);resized = true;}if (parent && parent._resizeIframe) {var obj = {iframe: window.frameElement, height: height}; parent._resizeIframe(obj); resized = true;}if (window.location && window.location.hash === "#amp=1" && window.parent && window.parent.postMessage) {window.parent.postMessage({sentinel: "amp", type: "embed-size", height: height}, "*");}if (window.webkit && window.webkit.messageHandlers && window.webkit.messageHandlers.resize) {window.webkit.messageHandlers.resize.postMessage(height); resized = true;}return resized;}twttr.events.bind('rendered', function (event) {notifyResize();}); twttr.events.bind('resize', function (event) {notifyResize();});if (parent && parent._resizeIframe) {var maxWidth = parseInt(window.frameElement.getAttribute("width")); if ( 500 < maxWidth) {window.frameElement.setAttribute("width", "500");}}

A military which can afford to spend trillions of dollars on a devastating 20-year war that accomplished literally nothing besides making war profiteers fabulously rich is a military which needs its budget slashed to ribbons. Clearly if Pentagon officials can waste such unfathomably vast fortunes lining the pockets of the military-industrial complex to the benefit of not one single ordinary American, they do not need anything like the obscenely bloated military budget the United States currently has.

Just thinking about the things those two trillion dollars could have been spent on instead, like fully ending both homelessness and child poverty in the United States, for example, should make Americans howl with rage. Hell, spending two trillion dollars building a useless brick mountain in the middle of the Mojave Desert would’ve been an infinitely better use of that money than murdering hundreds of thousands of people with US troops dying by the thousands and wounded by the tens of thousands. That last bit alone should have every military family member marching on Washington and Arlington today.

The US government is the single most tyrannical regime on this planet, without exception. It has killed millions and displaced tens of millions just since the turn of this century, solely in its wars that are still currently happening, all in the name of power and profit and destroying anyone who disobeys its dictates. Anyone who cares about humanity should place the defanging of this horrific monster at the very forefront of their values.
