Disinfecting Swine

Australia enacts new laws overnight extending mandatory detention authority over citizens or visitors who may be suspected of being virally infected.

The Federal Government has increased its powers of surveillance, detention and disinfection to combat swine flu as the official death toll in Mexico is revised down from 20 to 7. I can see Daleks hovering everywhere screaming disinfect, dis in fect!

Health Minister Nicola Roxon says she has no intention of forcibly detaining or isolating people, but has nevertheless sought the extra powers just in case. I believe her, our government really care, right?

Governor-General Quentin Bryce consented to the sweeping new quarantine powers for health officials. I wonder, armed health officials? Doesn’t matter if its law, Doc says quarantine and armed thugs, call them police if you will, enforce. I guess it will be out of the question to decline vaccinations under detention.

The fear of Swine

Headlines around the globe continue to elevate the swine flu death toll in Mexico. Currently the figure is 152. There are some instances, but rarely do these news bites accurately report this toll as "believed" or "suspected". Even more elusive in the media, the actual number of confirmed deaths, 20. That’s right, 130 deaths are believed, suspected, possibly related to swine flu. Swine flu, first detected March 18 may be deadly in some cases, but how many people die from regular, every day flu variants annually around the world? The answer, according to World Health Organization (WHO) is between 250,000 to 500,000 per year.

Does it seem weird, 20 confirmed deaths have effectively seen the streets of Mexico City deserted? That is with the exception of wandering, machine gun wielding military personnel.

President Barack Obama gave a speech at the National Museum of Anthropology in Mexico City on April 16, 2009. He was received by archaeologist Felipe Solis who later died from "flu like symptoms". CBS news

Apparently Obama continues to enjoy good health; perhaps he was all dosed up with Tamiflu. It has been reported that the Roche Company’s Tamiflu and the Australian developed inhalant alternative Relenza, are effective in treating and preventing the swine flu.

It would appear that the Melbourne based licensing partner for Relenza, shares the same good fortune to that of President Obama. During the first three months of 2009, Relenza sales unexpectedly exceeded sales for the entire previous year by four times, something to do with stockpiling by the Japanese and British governments. Hmm, coincidence? Here’s another, Biota Holdings, the licensing partner, had a sharp rise in their share price just before the miraculous sales figures were made public. Hmm, imagine that.

US Congressman Ron Paul, also a physician, says in 1976 there was a vote on swine flu. Back then there was a Pan A that was said would sweep the nation. The government was going to inoculate everyone and save the world. Ron Paul and one other voted against it. The flu came and went, one person died from it but 25 died from the vaccine. Many more got ill from it until finally they had to suspend the vaccine program. watch Ron Paul YouTube

Jobless should have random drug tests

U.S. lawmakers are pushing through plans to force Americans claiming welfare benefits to submit to random drug testing.

Supporters claim the tests will ensure that taxpayer’s money will not be wasted paying for people’s illegal drug habits. Those on drugs will be denied payments.

Lawmakers in eight states are considering bills that require jobless residents receiving food stamps, unemployment payments or other welfare benefits to be drug free.

‘Nobody’s being forced into these assistance programs,’ said West Virginia Republican Craig Blair. ‘If so many jobs require random drug tests these days, why not these benefits?’

Great idea numb nuts. Starve the users so they become dealers or commit other crimes to survive. Where will taxpayer dollars be then?

Oh and Craig, you may not be "forcing anybody to take assistance", they have the choice to stop eating, and breathing at any time, but if wasting taxpayer money was a crime, you would be hung.

Video reveals G20 police assault on man who died

Ian Tomlinson, the man who died at last week's G20 protests in London, was attacked from behind and thrown to the ground by a baton-wielding police officer in riot gear.

The Guardian is preparing to hand a ­dossier of evidence to the police ­complaints watchdog. It sheds fresh light on the events ­surrounding the death of the 47-year-old newspaper seller, who had been on his way home from work when he was confronted by lines of riot police near the Bank of England.

The film reveals that as he walks, with his hands in his pockets, he does not speak to the police or offer any resistance. A Metropolitan police officer appears to strike him with a baton, hitting him from behind on his upper thigh.

Moments later, the same policeman rushes forward and, using both hands, pushes Tomlinson in the back and sends him flying to the ground, where he ­remonstrates with police who stand back, leaving bystanders to help him to his feet.

Moments after the assault on ­Tomlinson was captured on video, he ­suffered a heart attack and died.

Police raid blogger that criticizes them

Jeff Pataky, who runs Bad Phoenix Cops, said the officers confiscated three computers, routers, modems, hard drives, memory cards and everything necessary to continue blogging.

Maricopa County Judge Gary Donahoe signed the search warrant that allowed at least ten cops to raid his home in North Phoenix on March 12 while handcuffing his female roommate for three hours as they tore the place apart.

Pataky, who was out of town on a business trip during the raid, also believes police were retaliating against him for the content of his blog, much of it which comes from inside sources within the department.

FCUK the Police!

Never letting the truth get in the way of good headlines, main stream media has fed millions around the world; tales of evil protesters rampaging with violence and destruction during the G20 meeting in London and the NATO summit in Strasbourg.

If the truth be told, only police were responsible for acts of violence, and as for willful vandalism, these scenes were carefully staged with the blessing of authorities.

These tactics are not new; they are standard procedure for ensuring the messages behind peaceful protests don’t get heard. Its one thing to execute PSYOPs obscuring our reality, but quite another when innocent people die from this authoritarian thuggery.

The following article from Indymedia UK
During a demonstration against the G20 in London, thousands of protesters were trapped inside a police cordon (kettled) where they were baton charged and crushed by the police. A man died during this demonstration outside the Bank of England in London. Eyewitnesses have now released a statement and video.

Various participants in the City of London demonstrations on April 1st have come forward as witnesses to the collapse of a man. Four different university students witnessed the collapse of Mr. Tomlinson. "He stumbled towards us from the direction of police and protesters and collapsed," said Peter Apps. "I saw a demonstrator who was a first aider attend to the person who had collapsed.”

Natalie Langford, a student at Queen Mary, said "there was a police charge. A lot of people ran in our direction. The woman giving first aid stood in the path of the crowd." The running people, seeing a guy on the ground, went around them.

Another demonstrator had already called 999 and was getting medical advice from the ambulance dispatcher. "Four police with two police medics came. They told her [the first aider] to move along", said Peter Apps. "Then they pushed her forcibly away from him. They refused to listen to her [the first aider] when she tried to explain his condition."

The first aider said "The police surrounded the collapsed man. I was standing with the person who'd called 999. The ambulance dispatcher wanted to talk to the police, the phone was being held out to them, but the police refused."

Another witness added "we didn't see the police perform CPR."

Other people who had tried to stay with the collapsed man were also pushed away.

All of the witnesses deny the allegation that many missiles were thrown.

According to Peter Apps, "one bottle was thrown, but it didn't come close to the police. Nothing was thrown afterwards as other demonstrators told the person to stop. The person who threw the bottle probably didn't realize that someone was behind the ring of police." All the witnesses said that the demonstrators were concerned for the well-being of the collapsed man once they realized that there was an injured person.

Who Controls The Black Bloc Anarchists?

by Paul Watson

The British authorities seemed to have little problem with allowing a group of violent black bloc anarchists smash up the RBS building while provoking police yesterday, despite the group announcing their target in advance, yet a legitimate anti-poverty organization has had its “accreditation” to protest at the G20 removed on the orders of Downing Street.

The World Development Movement which was part of last weekend’s huge Put People First Alliance which held a rally in London, said the Foreign Office received a note from 10 Downing Street telling it to revoke the accreditation.

The black bloc anarchist assault on the Royal Bank of Scotland building certainly had an air of being stage-managed. The target was announced in advance, the authorities knew that the building was a prime target, and yet it was the only one in the street not boarded up. A cafe across the street was boarded up and yet the RBS building was left completely vulnerable to attack.

Cue a relatively small gaggle of black-bloc anarchists, followed by a similarly sized press corps to photograph every angle of every smashed window, and you have the makings of a stage-managed event to instantly be consumed by the watching middle classes thus enlisting their support for a police state crackdown. In this instance, the police stood back and let them do pretty much whatever they liked, which is highly suspicious within itself, but the week is far from over and a wider crackdown could ensue now that public acquiescence has been garnered through repeated footage showing the hostility of the anarchists.

This particular black bloc sect are at best completely infiltrated by provocateurs who can routinely be relied upon to provide the media with violent footage with which to demonize legitimate protesters at every major global summit stretching back nearly two decades.

Whenever someone asks them what they are actually proposing to replace the evils of capitalism, they have no idea. Meanwhile, people who actually have a defined cause and merely want to exercise their right to free speech as a public platform to draw attention to the issue, and have already proven they are a peaceable group, are barred from doing so by the government removing their “accreditation” to protest.

Phone tap laws may be relaxed

Australian Federal Attorney-General says the Commonwealth Government will consider changing the federal law governing phone taps in a bid to help states crack down on bikie gangs and organised crime. McClelland says Federal Gov may need to amend the telecommunications interception act to lower the bar for state authorities to tap phone calls.

No Death Penalty: A National Tragedy

Democrat Scott Murphy, who is running in an election for Downstate New York, has been branded a “terrorist supporter” by Republican opponents for not supporting the death penalty.
Republican Paul Lindsay says:

“By opposing the death penalty for the terrorists who carried out the 9/11 attacks, it is abundantly clear that Murphy is unable or unwilling to empathize with the loss so many New York families faced on that tragic day.”
The GOP logic refers to a Murphy interview where he was asked the abstract question, would you support the death penalty for the 9/11 hijackers had they survived? According to a GOP media advertisement, answering no is a “National Tragedy”.

It truly does say something when the only way death penalty supporters can justify their barbarism in a so called democratic civil society, is to cry tragedy when dead terrorists escape the death penalty.

Aside from terrorists evading the death penalty with the loophole of already being dead, I’ve always found it weird that nations such as the US, can teach citizens not to kill, by killing. Killing is wrong, don’t do it or we’ll fucking kill you, that’s not wrong, that’s right!
