Australian Prime Minister Howard is touring the world carrying a message of blind loyalty to the Bush Administration and unrelenting support ("stay the course") for the criminal Bush Wars in Iraq and Afghanistan. Mainstream Media have reported the honours lavished on Howard by the war criminal Bush Administration and the extreme right-wing minority Canadian Harper Government (which has recently extended the Canadian presence in Occupied Afghanistan despite majority popular opposition).

Australia funded Saddam & insurgency, US, UK intelligence KNEW - did Bush & Blair KNOW & BETRAY?
By : Dr Gideon Polya - Thursday April 27, 2006
3 comments
Australia funded Saddam Hussein and thence the Iraqi insurgency to the tune of US$250 MILLION via a wheat sale kickback scam by monopoly company AWB (Australian Wheat Board). However despite the fact that everybody else involved, including Australian Intelligence, knew about the Iraqi kickback system, the Australian Government STILL denies having known. According to Opposition Leader Kim Beazley (a longstanding, loyal friend of America but opposed to the Iraq War): "I’m embarrassed as (...)

Australian media lying by omission over wheat scam that killed up to 20,000 Iraqi infants
By : Gideon Polya - Monday February 20, 2006
Australia has an extraordinary culture of resolute public untruth, "gagging", "looking the other way" and lying by omission. This entrenched culture of LYING permits an Establishment of Prosperous Anglo-Celtic Men (PACMEN; I am 50% Pacman myself) with extremely strong buddy loyalties to get away with blue murder. Now such sustained untruth and "looking the other way" has enabled a major Australian US$250 million corporate scam that may have killed UP TO 20,000 IRAQI INFANTS. The 2005 UN (...)

Henry Rollins, “nominated as a possible threat” for reading a book about militant Islam (Jihad: The Rise Of Militant Islam In Central Asia) on a recent flight from Auckland, had the right idea when he told the government of Australia and the National Security office to “go f... themselves.” As well, he would do good to never visit Australia again and urge his family, friends, and fans of his music and stand-up comedy routine to do likewise.

Iraq deaths - how PC racist Australian lying, spin & oil-for-food kickbacks killed Iraqi kids
By : Gideon Polya - Tuesday February 14, 2006
The UN Volker Report (2005) has disclosed that the monopoly Australian Wheat Board (AWB) was responsible for kickbacks totalling US$225 million out of an estimated US$1.8 billion of illicit payments to Saddam Hussein’s régime during the UN Oil For Food program in 1999-2003. The kickback mechanism involved excessive trucking fees paid to a Jordanian company half-owned by the Iraqi Government. The Australian Government has repeatedly said "we knew nothing" but expert whistleblowers have (...)

By Sam Varghese An Australian anti-racist website came under a sustained distributed denial of service earlier this week and the people who run the site suspect the perpetrators may be from across the Tasman. Sydney activist Mat Henderson-Hau, who runs the website Fightdemback, said the attacks had begun on Monday and knocked the site offline. "We suspect someone in New Zealand but we cannot say anything definitely now," he said. The site is hosted by a small Melbourne provider which (...)

A Gay Israel?
By : Wayne Besen - Monday August 15, 2005

by Wayne Besen In 2004, a group of gay activists took over Cato Island, a small sand bar in the Coral Sea off the northeast coast of Australia. They planted a rainbow flag on the beach and declared it the world’s first gay kingdom in protest of anti-gay legislation in Australia. When I originally read this news story I got a good laugh while I drank my morning coffee. After a recent spasm of anti-gay violence in several countries, I’m no longer chuckling. The merits of (...)

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 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 (...)

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.

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 (...)
