The People vs. the Hidden Hand: David Icke Speaks Out (Part 1)

By MARC STAR Among those who’ve chosen to question mainstream belief systems, David Icke is an icon, a one-man alarm clock who has probably woken up more people to the global conspiracy than any other individual. He is a natural orator with a compelling and engaging style of both writing and speaking who has managed – in ways unlike any before him – to connect a vast web of seemingly disparate dots into a single, unified picture. It is a picture that, when he explains it to a freshly opened … [Read more...]

Oceania Forever: Rise of the Global Police State

By PATRICK HENNINGSEN Much has been written about the approaching Police State in alternative media. Commentary ranges from various warnings, to shock and outrage, and fear over an impending martial law takeover in North America and Western Europe. It’s hitting us from so many different angles, and yet the mainstream conversation continues to be woefully inadequate in both characterising the situation and offering a remedy. In order to really understand the modern Police State, we need to … [Read more...]

Weapons of Mass Distraction: The Media, Advertising & Social Programming

By MARIE D. JONES & LARRY FLAXMAN The mass media is the biggest remote control ever built, and we all exist within the four-walled idiot box it controls. Manipulation of thought and behaviour is a part of our accepted daily lives. Each time we lock eyes on a news story, whether on the tube, the screen, the tablet or the old fashioned way, via a newspaper, we are buying into a perspective that may or may not be our own. We read stuff, and readily accept it as reality, often without ever … [Read more...]

Celebrities & the Art of Distraction

By PATRICK HENNINGSEN When you flip through your daily newspaper, or watch the nightly news, chances are you have noticed a steady increase in celebrity news, fashion, and gossip filling up the column inches, and crowding out the news. This has been going on for centuries. In Latin it’s called panem et circenses. Translated, it means ‘bread and circuses’, a phrase made famous by the Roman poet Juvenal circa CE 100. In Roman terms, this phrase refers to the creation of public approval by the … [Read more...]

The Emerging ‘Mark of the Beast’ System: Sleepwalking into the Surveillance Society

By STEVEN TRITTON Modern technology has created a brave new electronic and borderless world. Surveillance and biometric capturing technologies have advanced significantly in recent years. ID programs have modernised with the likes of ID smartcards linked to huge databases enabling fast and secure electronic authentication among other surveillance functions. Advances in digital technologies have made it possible now to construct an identification system capable of monitoring just about every … [Read more...]

Gallipoli: The Untold Story – ‘The first casualty of war is truth’

By GERRY DOCHERTY & JIM MACGREGOR The truth about Gallipoli has, unlike its victims, been buried deep. Historians like Peter Hart who describe it as “an idiocy generated by muddled thinking”1 are justified in their anger, but not their conclusions. The campaign was conceived in London as a grotesque, Machiavellian strategy to fool the Russians into believing that Britain was attempting to capture Constantinople for them. The paradox of its failure lay in its success. Gallipoli was … [Read more...]

Australia: The End of Freedom? We are Sleepwalking into a Surveillance State

By STEVEN TRITTON The leaked classified documents by Edward J. Snowden beginning in June 2013 unleashed waves of alarming revelations across the world of covert government mass surveillance and data mining on a global scale. Considered “the most spectacular intelligence breach in history” by one publisher,1 Snowden’s disclosures tore a wide opening in the veil of international secret government spying and surveillance. The bombshell leaks catalysed immediate protest on pressing concerns of … [Read more...]

Who is Afraid of Conspiracy Theories?

By LANCE DEHAVEN-SMITH, Ph.D. In his book Philosophical Investigations, philosopher of science Ludwig Wittgenstein demonstrated that words are more than designations or labels. They are signals in a context of activity, and are invested with many assumptions about the roles and social status of speakers and listeners. In the 20th century, men often called women “girls.” This term, while indeed referring to something real – to women – was more than merely a label; it was demeaning and … [Read more...]

Australia: A Police State

By STEVEN TRITTON The government is charting an audacious new course in the ‘war against terrorism’ and it has important implications for us all. At the time of writing, the Australian parliament has passed the first of three tranches of controversial new national security legislation. Officially known as the National Security Legislation Amendment Bill (No. 1) 2014, these new laws are an affront to democracy and mark an unprecedented threat to the freedom and privacy of all Australians. The … [Read more...]

War or Peace? World Entering Epochal Period of Geopolitical Change

By F. WILLIAM ENGDAHL In a famous speech to the US Congress in March 1991, just after the collapse of the Soviet Union and the US Gulf War victory over Saddam Hussein’s Iraq, a triumphant US President George H.W. Bush proclaimed the dawn of a “New World Order.”1 The term, with its ominous freemasonic connotations, raised many an eyebrow and Bush never again publicly used the term. However, what he meant became starkly clear to the world in the two decades following the collapse of the Berlin … [Read more...]
