1/1/11 New Year’s Day Message is ONE (1): Unity and Equality for all Humanity on its ONE and only Planet

The fundamental message on 1/1/11 is indeed 1 (ONE) – 1 man-one-vote, there is only 1 Planet (Spaceship Earth) for Humanity, and equal shares in resources i.e. until we necessarily all cease carbon dioxide (CO2) pollution in 2050 the ratio of my share to your share should be 1. All decent folk subscribe to the essential egalitarianism of the second sentence of the American Declaration of Independence “We hold these truths to be self-evident, that all men are created equal, (...)

Make Christmas Day a Memorial Day to 7.8 million infants dying from US Alliance hegemony each year
By : Dr Gideon Polya - Friday December 24, 2010
At Christmas 2010 we celebrate the birth of Jesus and remember his parents fleeing as refugees from the slaughter of the children by cruel King Herod. 2 millennia after the birth of Jesus there are some 20 million Muslim refugees and a cruel and evil President Obama presides over an American Empire that murders about 1,000 children every day (see “Hey, hey, USA, how many kids did you kill day?

WikiLeaks saga elicits Censorship & active Genocide Ignoring by Australian Mainstream Media
By : Dr Gideon Polya - Friday December 17, 2010
Two major features of WikiLeaks are that (1) the leaked cables simply provide documentary confirmation what sensible people had surmised already about the war criminal, genocidal US Alliance and US state terrorism; and (2) the real scandal that neither WikiLeaks nor Mainstream media (MSM) will report the horrendous carnage of 8 million dead so far in the US War on Terror. Below is documentary evidence of how one of Australia’s leading "liberal" newspapers, The Age (Melbourne), (...)

Pro-US Australian Labor Government threats to WikiLeaks & Julian Assange => decent Oz will Put Labor Last
By : Dr Gideon Polya - Friday December 10, 2010
Leading WikiLeaks figure, Julian Assange, is an Australian-born Australian citizen (see Wikipedia: ). So far the WikiLeaks releases re Australia have exposed what US officials thought of PM Rudd (“control freak”); Rudd’s advocacy of US war with China and Australian soldiers for war in Pakistan; successful lobbying of the Labor Government by BHP Billiton to block a $21 billion Chinese investment in mining giant Rio Tinto; revelation of secret Australian Government (...)

Wikileaks: servant of democracy, enemy of hypocrites and liars
By : Robin Beste and Alistair Cartwright - Friday December 10, 2010
Everything we knew about the mass killing, torture and corruption in Iraq and Afghanistan has been confirmed. The world’s leaders can no longer hide the truth by simply lying to the public. The lies themselves have been exposed. The Stop the War Coalition believes the attacks on Wikileaks are an outrage. Wikileaks has only served the interests of democracy in revealing the secrets of the wars in Afghanistan and Iraq, which are now irreversibly in the public domain. Everything we (...)

WIKILEAKS LEGITIMACY CANNOT BE TESTED BUT THE LEGITIMACY OF THE LEAKS CAN
By : JOHN CHUCKMAN - Sunday December 5, 2010
We have no way to determine whether WikiLeaks itself is genuine. But we do have enough information in the nature of the leaks to reach some tentative conclusions. The leaked material is almost certainly all genuine. But it is highly selective, a crucial fact. There is nothing terrible about America and its wars abroad, and any clear-thinking person knows perfectly well there are terrible tales to tell about wars abroad. That is the history of wars. There is no dirt on Israel or (...)

Real WikiLeaks Scandal: Mainstream reports secret US documents but not 90 million dead from US occupation
By : Dr Gideon Polya - Friday December 3, 2010
1 comment
WikiLeaks has been closed down world-wide and its heroic founder Julian Assange is facing arrest. Yet the WikiLeaks saga obscures an even more appalling reality that Mainstream media, politicians and academics are remorselessly lying about past and present genocidal realities from the Iraqi, Palestinjan, Tamil and Afghan Genocides to the worsening Global Avoidable Mortality Holocaust and looming Climate Genocide that is set to kill 10 billion people this century. The New Statesman has (...)

The first U.S. soldier court-martialed in the prosecution of 12 infantrymen accused of terrorizing unarmed Afghan civilians pleaded guilty on Wednesday to assault and other charges and agreed to testify against his co-defendants. Staff Sergeant Robert Stevens, 25, an Army medic from Portland, Oregon, admitted to opening fire on two Afghan farmers for no apparent reason. He and other troops were acting on orders from a squad leader during a patrol in March. The charge of aggravated assault (...)

4.6 million dead Iraqi & Afghan infants but Oz ABC wouldn’t ask Hillary Clinton "Is the price worth it?"
By : Dr Gideon Polya - Saturday November 20, 2010
US Secretary of State Hillary Clinton recently visited Australia in November 2010 but was not asked the key question about 4.6 million post-invasion under-5 infant deaths in Occupied Iraq and Occupied Afghanistan (UN data), specifically “Is the price worth it?” Clinton’s friend and predecessor as Secretary of State, Madeleine Albright, had been asked the same question on CBS “60 Minutes” in 1996 (when dead Iraqi children totaled “only" 0.5 million) and (...)

Prince William’s engagement elicits censorship of UK-US Muslim Holocaust, Iraqi Genocide, Afghan Genocide
By : Dr Gideon Polya - Thursday November 18, 2010
The “happy families” engagement of Britain’s Prince William to “commoner” Kate Middleton has generated a lot a feel-good media coverage but has also provided a good example of mainstream media (MSM) censorship in Australia. The Age On-line has declined to publish the shocking, documented details of the devastation of circa 100 million mostly Muslim families subject to the ongoing Occupations and Muslim Holocaust of the Anglo-American War on Terror.

The leaders of the US Alliance have yet to face war crimes trials before the International Criminal Court (ICC) for their involvements in the Iraqi Genocide (4.4 million deaths, 1990-2010) and the Afghan Genocide (4.9 million deaths, 2001-2003). However Australian Guantanamo Bay prisoner David Hicks (who has committed no offences against Australian or International law) is reportedly under investigation by Australian authorities for a possible “proceeds of crimes” prosecution (...)

The far-right in Ukraine are acting as the vanguard of a protest movement that is being reported as pro-democracy. The situation on the ground is not as simple as pro-EU and trade versus pro-Putin and Russian hegemony in the region. When US Senator John McCain dined with Ukraine’s opposition leaders in December, he shared a table and later a stage with the leader of the extreme far-right Svoboda party Oleh Tyahnybok. This is Oleh Tyahnybok, he has claimed a "Moscow-Jewish mafia" (...)

I’VE DECIDED TO "WASTE" MY VOTE
Sunday 28 October
by : David R. Hoffman, Legal Editor of Pravda.Ru
In a 2004 episode of Comedy Central’s animated series South Park, an election was held to determine whether the new mascot for the town’s elementary school would be a “giant douche” or a “turd sandwich.” Confronted with these two equally unpalatable choices, one child, Stan Marsh, refused to vote at all, which resulted in his ostracization and subsequent banishment from the town. Although this satirical vulgarity was intended as a commentary on the two (...)

HIGHER EDUCATION IN AMERICA: DREAM OR NIGHTMARE? PART IV
Friday 28 September
by : David R. Hoffman, Legal Editor of Pravda.Ru
PART I PART II PART III If there is one major inconsistency in life, it is that young people who know little more than family, friends and school are suddenly, at the age of eighteen, supposed to decide what they want to do for the rest of their lives. Unfortunately, because of their limited life experiences, the illusions they have about certain occupations do not always comport to the realities. I discovered this the first time I went to college. About a year into my studies, I (...)

Even as colleges and universities raise their tuition costs, they are relying more and more on adjunct instructors. Adjuncts are (...)

If there is one universal question that haunts all human beings at some point in their lives, it is, “Why do we die?” Death, after all, is the great illogic. It ultimately claims all, the rich and the poor, the mighty and the small, the good and the evil. Death also has the capability to make most human pursuits—such as the quest for wealth, fame and power—vacuous and fleeting. Given this reality, I have often wondered why so many people are still willing to (...)

HOW MUCH CORRUPTION CAN DEMOCRACY ENDURE?

How much corruption can a “democracy” endure before it ceases to be a democracy? If five venal, mendacious, duplicitous, amoral, biased and (dare I say it) satanic Supreme Court “justices”—John Roberts, Samuel Alito, Antonin Scalia, Clarence Thomas and Anthony Kennedy—have their way, America will soon find out. In several previous articles for Pravda.Ru, I have consistently warned how the Supreme Court’s 2010 Citizens United decision is one of the (...)

LIVE, from the State that brought you Senator Joseph McCarthy, Wisconsin voters now proudly present, fresh from his recall election victory, Governor Scott Walker! At first glance, it is almost unfathomable that anyone with a modicum of intelligence would have voted to retain Scott Walker as Wisconsin’s governor. This, after all, is a man who openly declared he is trying to destroy the rights of workers through a “divide and conquer” strategy; who received 61% of the (...)

A question I’ve frequently been asked since I began writing for Pravda.Ru in 2003 is, “Why did you become disillusioned with the practice of law?” This question is understandable, particularly since, in most people’s minds, being an attorney is synonymous with wealth and political power. I’ve always been reluctant to answer this question for fear it will discourage conscientious and ethical people from pursuing careers in the legal profession—a (...)
