Dictatorship approves anti-liberty bill

Prime miniature john hoWARd (the coward's) anti-liberty directives have been passed in the out-house without them even flushing the toilet.

But a challenge has been issued to some neo-liberal sin-ators to wipe their arse after the sedition diarrhea started running down the back of their legs.

Mr Speaker, did you flush the toilet after that big shit?

The out-house approved the counter-dissent measures after federal dictator-general philip duddock-ordered the sedition provisions must remain in the bill.

"I argue very strongly that they ought to continue in their present form," he said.

But why does he argue so strongly? At a time when corruption in public office is the worst it has ever been in the last 200 years of Australia's history.

That means his neo-liberal dictatorship will be able to hide their crimes and corruption and continue to flout the rule of law.

The stench alone would warrant his government's dismissal because he's seeking to prevent people telling the truth about his government's continued and unabated corruption and crimes against humanity.

Duddock: "Sedition has become a more relevant offence."

But Mr Speaker, more relevant if you're a corrupt war criminal who seeks to quell dissent!

Earlier this week the Sin-ate recommended the-sedition should be removed because they could undermine free speech.

But random stop, search and seizure, tracking and tagging, home detention, and preventive detention of citizenry won't?

Right you lying creep of a dictatorship?

Now the legislation is listed to be debated soon in the sin-nate.

With its unprecedented powers of secret arrest and detention without trial, the retrospective aspect of control orders, and extended definitions of sedition, the Federal Government's extraordinary new counter-terrorism legislation threatens our way of life no less than terrorism.

Constitution: Defending Against State Terror and Despots
Australia has no major laws that are not derivatives of English Law and all of our major laws rely on British court precedents for interpretation and implementation. These laws and our Constitutional Monarchy system create a situation where, even if Howard and all State Premiers vote unanimously on the Anti-Terrorist laws, and every ALP/Dem/Lib/Nat/Green party hack also votes unanimously on their laws, and even if such laws are given Royal Assent, those laws are still void.

Sydney Morning Herald: "According to the latest Herald Poll, about three-quarters of voters think it is OK to lock up suspected terrorists [scapegoats for the Coalition of the Killings resource wars in the Middle East] without charge, put them under house arrest or shackle them with tracking devices."

The Howard Government wants to give police executing preventative detention orders the power to shoot to kill. This is shoot to kill madness.

New anti-terror laws and the Muslim community

Spots and Stripes
It is well known that John Howard, infamous lackey and liar, is devoid of anything that could be remotely regarded as masculine or manly; the draconian measures he has implemented to 'secure' Australia against the terrorist bogeyman are astounding.

When Terrorism Outlaws Democracy
On September 27, 2005, Australian democracy surrendered to terrorism. On that day, a coalition of willing federal and state leaders agreed to anti-terrorism legislation that will enable police persecution of the Muslim community and threaten dissidents with imprisonment.

Australia, with its history of penal colonies, racism and detention centers, is now set to become a police state.

In the weeks since the abuses at Abu Ghraib prison were revealed, evidence continues to seep out of similar mistreatment of prisoners in other US military detention centers in Iraq, Afghanistan, and Guantanamo Bay.

Howard rejects spy agency overhaul
Prime Minister John Howard has played down the need for a major overhaul of Australia's spy agencies as a result of an inquiry by former intelligence officer Phillip Flood.

Mamdouh Habib: Taunted and Tortured!
Four Corners [Walls]: Terrorist - or Taunted by the Australian Defence Force who sacked him as a cleaning contractor? Who is Mamdouh Habib? And why was he harassed by the Australian Federal Police? Then tagged and labelled as a spy? Why was he vilified by the community? When he fled to Pakistan how did he end up being tortured in Egypt? And how did he end up at Guantanamo prison camp reserved for the men America calls "the worst of the worst.

He was an undercover agent for the blues
He was my journalist, he was working undercover. The fellow knew all of the moves.... He really had me romping, bare footing stomping. He just kept igniting my fuse....

Up there Khasali: Innocent man new bail laws
The New South Wales Supreme Court has asked innocent man Bilal Khazal to increase to amount of surety offered, before the bail is formally continued.

Young men terrorised, tortured, and threatened with charges for no crime by Australia mate the lucky country. Lucky if you're not used for Howard's FEDERAL ELECTION and George Dubya's WAR ON LIBERTY! Who shot liberty? IGNORANCE!

Ul-Haque 'the man who wants to become a doctor'
The taskforce is investigating French man Willie Brigitte, who was tipped back home for a visa breach. Allegedly the Un-Australian Newspaper claimed he also attended training camps before his six-month stay in Sydney. Police have not alleged Mr Ul-Haque knew Brigitte. The Un-Australian just mentioned it because they are 'you guessed it' up John Howard's butt and they like the USA want 'you guessed it' our Federal Government. Well Yankee go home!

Brain injury for suspicion 'inhumane'
Faheem Khalid Lodhi refused bail by a Sydney court and remanded until June in hell at the (HARM-U) High Risk Management Unit at Goulburn. While he is in there he will receive a brain injury and is likely to self-harm due to the gross violation of living standards.

The Bull and this this passage provided the sole excuse for the torture and cruel executions that were, ultimately, to be the fate of up to fifty percent of the population of some villages.

There is no such thing as an Indonesian anti-corruption body

Leslie judges under the thumb!

A corrupt Indonesian government has now suggested that its anti-corruption body says it is investigating the judges who presided over the trial of Australian model Michelle Leslie on drug charges.

Don't blame me just because I am bored, I'm needy, I need to taste it all. Don't doubt me just because I am quiet. I'm thinking, thinking about it all.

But in Indonesia where they sanction state terror, there cannot be any such thing as an Anti-corruption body because the government in Indonesia is corrupt from the top down, but not for a song!

I'm helpless about the way of me. I'm thinking, thinking about it all. I'm sorting everything inside.

A Balinese court convicted Leslie after she was found in possession of two ecstasy pills and sentenced her to three months in jail.

I'm looking in the space, this time, this void. I'm making my way through the muddy minutes. The pull is in my muscle. The ache is in my bones. It's hard to be alone. (Breathe, breathe), It won't be long now (breathe, breathe).

Leslie was freed the day after the verdict was handed down as the judges took into account the time she had spent in jail during the trial.

After taking bribes the corrupt Indonesian government says its corrupt National Judicial Commission, which oversees judges in Indonesia, has confirmed that it is investigating the three-person panel responsible for the decision.

Say again? How can a filthy corrupt Indonesian government try and tell the world that they are going to get their national commission (that can only be corrupt) to investigate anything? And be believed?

An official says the sentence is regarded as being too lenient.

Sure, she should have at least got the death penalty?

How many pills would that take?

See through me when I put up a fight, like you to see the things I hide. Go deeper, than I won't let you know. I'm frightened but I won't let it show.

The commission is a set-up, a propaganda tool and a mechanism to try and bail out an embarrassed Indonesian government before the eyes of the world.

What right have the pro-government media institutions here got to try and brainwash the Australian people with nonsense and whitewash from the Indonesian authorities, trying to cover up their misdeeds?

This case is not as bad as blowing people up on the dance floor, in the cafes or at work at the Embassy because if that were what they were investigating then they'd have to start from the top down, in Indonesia.

CIA agent spreads terror fears in Australia

I'm helpless about the way of me. I'm thinking, thinking about it all. I'm sorting everything, inside.

They'll tell you that the commission was set up earlier this year to root out corruption in the judicial system, but not from the top down?

They claim that since its inception it has investigated 280 cases but has returned a corruption verdict in only one case.

See! Nothing wrong with them! I believe you?

I'm looking in the space, this time, this void. I'm making my way through the muddy minutes. The pull is in my muscle, the ache is in my bones. It's hard to be alone.

The corrupt Indonesian police say that Ms Leslie was arrested at a dance party in August after two tablets of ecstasy were found in her handbag.

(Breathe, breathe) It won't be long now (breathe, breathe).

Parents mortgaged home for Indonesian injustice
It was reported that more than $100,000 was paid out of at least $600,000 used to free Michelle Leslie.

Why is the prime minister so angry: Michelle Leslie
John Howard 'angry'. Not a good role model for a Prime Minister!

Indonesian Police Set Free After Torturing West Papuan Students to Death If you thought Schapelle Corby got a raw deal from the Indonesian justice system, spare a thought for the West Papuan students who survived a vicious attack by police as they slept in their dormitories in Abepura, West Papua, in the early hours of 7 December 2000.

Say no to Indonesia as a tourist destination
Australian tourists visiting Bali's nightspots will face random urine tests under an escalating anti-drugs crackdown on the Indonesian holiday island.

WHY IS THE HOWARD GOVERNMENT PLAYING 'DEATH' WITH AUSTRALIANS: There has been much controversy recently on whether the Australian Federal Police should have tipped-off the Indonesians over the arrest of the Bali Nine. Due to the fact that Indonesia executes convicted drug-traffickers, ACADP believes that any evidence collected by AFP should have been withheld from Indonesian authorities until they have a written guarantee not to pursue the death penalty for the Bali Nine.

On page19 of the BRISBANE "SUNDAY MAIL" there was an article entitled "CORBY VIDEO HELP REBUFFED". IF it is true, (the article which follows) it PROVES (IN LAW) the claim that OUR GOVERNMENT HAVE WITH-HELD EVIDENCE FROM THE LEGAL DEFENCE OF A CITIZEN.

It was me! 'New Corby trial'
SCHAPELLE Corby has been handed a second chance to fight for her freedom. But she got no second chances with the Daily Telegraph.

Australian man denies owning drug stash
AN Adelaide man facing up to 10 years in a Bali prison for drug possession has denied owning a stash of hashish allegedly found at his rented bungalow.

The Corby drug trial has become Bali's latest tourist attraction. Australians are taking time off to lend moral support to Schapelle Corby.

Corby lawyer pleads for Australian help
The lawyer for a Queensland woman facing drugs charges in Indonesia says it is not too late for Australian authorities to assist her defence.

Chris Allen, took to the streets of Bali and found it possible to buy a smorgasbord of illegal narcotics from dealers.

People: 'Prisoners' of Drugs'
People who are addicted to heroin usually take the drug because it relieves them of problems such as low self-esteem, distrust and fear of abandonment. They may have poor communication skills & poor relationship skills.

UK: This absolutely preposterous idea/theory of allowing a person/s to be possibly charged with 'possession', if found to have a drug substance within their bloodstream, just goes to prove such hypocrisies which certain hierarchies feel justifies passing legislation, is another blow for democracy!

Currently, 214 Australian citizens are languishing in prisons around the world. The majority of these having been convicted of drug-related crimes.

CIA agent returns to Indonesia last July?

CIA Agent Jones! It's all in the wrist action....[File photo] (Rooters)

American CIA agent sidney jones, another "alleged terrorism expert" has returned to Indonesia for some more Australian terrorist propaganda 'last July' said the ABC? Plame affair Ring a bell?

Reported in the mainscream today 4 months after she returned?

But why was it reported today in Australia you might ask?

Jones, who is cleverly disguised as a South-East Asia director for an International Crisis Group, spends most of her time giving sermons to Australia about a pseudonym called 'Jemaah Islamiya', a fictitious scapegoat group made up by the Americans.

Today's propaganda is that the corrupt Indonesian government ordered her to get out of the country signaling that they are not corrupt? And that jones has some type of International Crisis Group to deal with? But the only International work she does is report propaganda to Australia!

By telling the world that jones is about to re-enter Indonesia last July, and that she's now allowed back, when it's late November, is a sure sign of the CIA network in Indonesia breaking down in its credibility because of honest reporting elsewhere.

The story goes now that she had angered the previous Indonesian government with claims that the original Bali bombers had splintered from the Jemaah Islamiya group to form their own Indonesian based terrorist organisation.

They even managed to use her return, 'last July,' when it's late November to spread more propaganda today, not only about her 'legitimacy' but also about her prophesy.

But don't believe a word she says because she my friends is a typical CIA agent.

Sent to Indonesia to promote some type legitimacy to the alleged 'war on terror' and her 'radical statements' and 'terrorist theories'. And together with her spy mates and the pro-government media who seek to give her relevance because her job is to point the finger to have everyone look the wrong way, at the wrong enemy.

Sure she'll make the news on the ABC tonight so you will tend to believe it but don't this is the trap.

Rohan Gunaratna and Sidney Jones Right people? Right time? Right place? Funny that! It's all in the wrist action....[File photo] (Rooters)

The fake terrorist attacks we see almost every day on the news, including all the daily bombings in Iraq (by supposed "insurgents" who happened to have huge stockpiles of explosives for the past 2 years straight), including the Bali bombings and the London bombings, are all lame efforts to scare everyone into submission into supporting the fake "War on Terror" (used to disguise and justify seizing and controlling oil-rich middle-eastern land and to develop hatred against Muslims and Arab-looking people so that people will be more willing to join the army and kill such innocent people).

Australia 'must pay E Timor victims'

THE Australian, British and US Governments and international arms makers should pay compensation for their part in Indonesia's brutal 24-year occupation of East Timor, a commission of inquiry has demanded.

The 2500-page report, which President Xanana Gusmao presented to East Timor's parliament on Monday, contentiously recommends East Timor's victims be paid compensation by the colonisers Indonesia and Portugal, as well as by those nations that sold weapons to Indonesia and supported its annexation - including Australia.


CIA agent spreads terror fears in Australia
An international CIA spy from Indonesia says there are many terrorist networks operating in Australia - meanwhile the bombs are going off in his own backyard. But don't you worry he gets paid well to promote fear because he's part of the program on the 'war on terror' (which is usually state sanctioned terror to promote fear most of the time)!

Bashir handed out as a trophy on a silver plate for George Dubya, and John HoWARd? Abu Bakar Bashir is a Preacher and a Teacher and not a terrorist leader as pro-government media are broadcasting.

INDONESIA: US to resume military ties
In the boldest statement on the subject to date, US Secretary of State Condoleezza Rice has signalled that the US is ready to restore full military training ties with the Indonesian military (TNI). But the announcement coincides with new evidence of the TNI's involvement in the murder of two US nationals in 2002 and what is being dubbed the "biggest timber heist ever".

The Truth About Bali Bombings Part 1 REMIX Part One + Two: Que Bono. Who Benefited? The Bali Bombings were a direct US-Israeli response to the growing Peace marches and Anti War Movement in Australia that was ballooning at an alarming rate after 9-11 and after Bush announced he was waging illegal invasions. It also very quickly secured Indonesia's and Australia's subservience to the US and cemented involvement in the US led War on Terror, and subsequent illegal invasions of Iraq and Afghanistan.

Evidence that Howard was complicit in CIA, false flag, call to arms, Bali bombings War criminal John Howard was complicit in the call to arms - false flag operation - Bali bombings - instigated by the CIA - and the Coalition of the Killing - to bolster support - and quell dissent for their illegal and degrading resource wars in the Middle East.

State terror units caused the terror!
The level of suspicion and surveillance created by the [US false flag operation and call to arms] Bali bombings, created by [ the Coalition of the Killing and Australian's complicity to go to war on Iraq] means that all Australian's suffer the loss of their human rights, civil rights and their democratic rights, as well as those Australian's who lost their life in Bali.

Jail staff sexual assaults and drugs

NSW Prison staff have been accused of attacking and sexually assaulting 38 NSW inmates in the past year, new figures show.

Minister for Justice Tony Kelly said there had been 30 reports of alleged assaults by custodial staff and eight alleged sexual assaults.

Responses to questions on notice from a Budget Estimates hearing also revealed drugs and alcohol have been a problem plaguing NSW jails over the past year.

Ten prison officers have been dismissed for drunkenness or disciplinary reasons in the past 12 months and three had their contracts terminated for drug use. A further 18 staff members were referred for alcohol counselling.

Greens MLC Lee Rhiannon called on Mr Kelly to disclose whether these allegations of assault were being investigated.

"There have been a disturbing large number of allegations of assaults and sexual assaults committed by prison staff on inmates in NSW jails," she said. "I have asked the Minister what investigations have been undertaken into these allegations. Where assaults have occurred surely all Corrective Services staff who have been involved in these attacks should be banned from any interactions with prisoners."

Opposition justice spokesman Andrew Humpherson said prison staff who allegedly committed the assaults should be punished. [?]

"The fact there has been little action taken against staff for the alleged assaults suggests that the Government is happy to allow a culture of violence to be maintained in NSW prisons," he said.

"It's innocent citizens who will be the victims once these offenders are released from jail.

"There is a responsibility on government to ensure that the prison system is not creating hardened criminals who, upon release, will go and perpetrate further crime."

Abuse within prisons makes prisoners more violent upon release

The Australian public was confronted with similar accusations during 1978 when the NSW Royal Commission into Prisons headed by Justice Nagle found that the NSW Department of Corrective Services and its Ministers of both political persuasions had unofficially sanctioned the systematic brutalisation of prisoners at Grafton Jail from 1943 to 1976. A former Grafton prison guard, John Pettit, testified to the extent of that brutalisation:
