Yeah.. Dumping nuclear waste on Indigenous Australian Land Would Increase their Living Standards*

Yeah.. Dumping nuclear waste on Indigenous Australian Land Would Increase their Living Standards*

So why is it Hawke that you’re not dumping toxic waste on the land that you occupy?

By Oliver Milman

Australia could end the disadvantage endured by its Indigenous population by opening up traditional lands as dumping sites for nuclear waste from around the world, a former prime minister, Bob Hawke, has said.

Hawke said he was confident that the answer to long-standing indigenous socioeconomic problems was to allow radioactive waste to be stored on Aboriginal land, and use the revenue to improve living standards.

Speaking at the Indigenous Garma festival in the Northern Territory, Hawke said he had met Adam Giles, the territory’s chief minister, to discuss the idea and had got a favourable response.

“We need to do something substantial to finally eliminate these disgraceful gaps in well-being and lifetime opportunities,” Hawke said. “I have no hesitation whatsoever in putting the situation in very specific terms because I believe I have the answer.

“I’ve discussed this proposal with Adam Giles, who tells me he’s been approached by a number of elders who, like himself, are keenly supportive of the proposal.”

Despite having some of the largest deposits of uranium in the world, Australia has maintained a long-standing opposition to nuclear power and storing radioactive waste from overseas.

In June, traditional Indigenous owners in Muckaty Station, north of Tennant Creek, triumphed in a seven-year battle to stop domestic nuclear waste being dumped on their land.

The site was officially nominated for radioactive dumping but four different clans claimed they had not been consulted and that the site was near a sacred area. The Northern Land Council, which made the nomination, relented amid a challenge in the federal court.

Hawke, who was prime minister between 1983 and 1991, said any nuclear waste dumping would need Indigenous leaders’ full consent, but he stressed that the solution would give Australia “the capacity for substantial new expenditure on indigenous Australians”.

He said that towards the end of his premiership in 1991, he asked the then chief scientist, Ralph Slatyer, to investigate the possibility of storing nuclear waste in remote locations in Australia.

The report found that “Australia has the safest remote geological formations in the world for this purpose, in the Northern Territory and, to some extent, in Western Australia”, Hawke said.

“Our friends in the environmental movement say the challenge of climate change is a global one requiring international co-operation, and they are right,” he said. “With Australia having the safest nuclear disposal sites in the world, we have a responsibility and obligation to make these sites available for this purpose.

“In creating a safer energy cycle for a world threatened by global warming, we would not only be doing good for the rest of the world, we would be doing enormous good for Australia as the world would pay handsomely for this service.

“In other words, we make the world a safer place, we earn an enormous amount of new money, and we use that money to help close these unacceptable gaps between Indigenous and non-Indigenous Australians.”

Dave Sweeney, a nuclear-free campaigner with the Australian Conservation Foundation, said Hawke’s proposal was a “bloody disgrace”.

“Here you’ve got a privileged white man standing up saying this rubbish should be dumped on systematically disadvantaged people’s land,” he told Guardian Australia. “It’s offensive and it’s dumb.

“For more than 20 years Aboriginal communities at multiple sites in South Australia and the NT have mobilised and defeated federal government plans for a national radioactive waste dump on their country, most recently at Muckaty. To think that they will accept an international dump is fanciful.

“To put forward that the best way to address the shameful state of the economic and structural disadvantage of the world’s oldest continuing culture is through hosting the world’s worst industrial wastes is a profound and perpetual policy failure.”

In his Garma speech, Hawke said he was “sick and tired” of the impasse in improving the fortunes of Indigenous people. He said he was saddened that he was never able to strike a treaty with Indigenous people while he was prime minister, but he said he fully supported the present move to recognise Aboriginal heritage in the constitution.

USDA to Approve ‘Agent Orange’ Crops!

USDA to Approve ‘Agent Orange’ Crops!

On August 6 (2014), the U.S. Department of Agriculture (USDA), over the objections of 50 members of Congress, and more than 500,000 citizens, scientists, farmers and health professionals, moved one step closer to approving Dow’s new Enlist-brand soy and corn crops.

We have until September 8 to convince the USDA to reject Dow’s “Agent Orange” crops. Please sign the petition today!

Dow’s new GMO crops are engineered to withstand massive doses of Enlist Duo herbicide, concocted from a combination of 2,4-D (used to make Agent Orange) and glyphosate, the key ingredient in Monsanto’s Roundup.

The USDA has admitted that approval of Dow’s new crops will cause the use of 2,4-D to skyrocket from 26 million pounds to 176 million pounds. Scientists predict worse.
Dow’s 2,4-D is already the seventh largest source of dioxins in the U.S. It’s been linked to a host of ills, including birth defects, infertility, allergies, Parkinson’s disease, endocrine disruption and cancer.

It’s unconscionable that the USDA would approve these crops. Yet the agency is on the verge of doing just that. Unless we stop it.

Re: Docket No. APHIS-2013-0042-10218

I urge you to heed the warnings of scientists, doctors and environmentalists and reject Dow’s new 2,4-D-resistant corn and soy crops.

The USDA has admitted (http://www.aphis.usda.gov/brs/aphisdocs/24d_deis.pdf) that approval of Dow’s new crops will cause the use of 2,4-D to skyrocket from 26 million pounds to 176 million pounds. Scientists predict (http://www.enveurope.com/content/24/1/24) worse.

Dow’s 2,4-D is already the seventh largest (http://www.centerforfoodsafety.org/files/fsr_24-d.pdf) source of dioxins (http://www.who.int/mediacentre/factsheets/fs225/en/) in the U.S. It’s been linked to a host of ills, including birth defects, infertility, allergies, Parkinson’s disease, endocrine disruption and cancer.

The USDA has already heard from more than 500,000 concerned citizens, and 50 members of Congress, who oppose approval of these crops. The problem of GMO crops developing resistance to toxins like 2.4-D and glyphosate is no longer a distant warning. U.S. farmers are battling increasing numbers of “superweeds.” The escalation of the chemical wars is not working.

The United Nations Food and Agriculture Organization has released numerous reports calling for a halt to the escalation of the chemical wars and a return to sustainable, organic agriculture as the only real solution to world hunger.

Between the State of the City of London and the Crown*

Between the State of the City of London and the Crown*

By Julian Websdale

World politics today is governed by the Vatican, but also by the Crown Empire. The modern world of so-called Western Civilization began at the end of the 17th century with the blossoming of the British Empire. That empire actually began several hundred years earlier with the establishment of the City of London, which is now an 800-year corporation that controls finance from an entity called ‘The Crown’. This entity is the creator and controller of the Bank of England, the US Federal Reserve, the World Bank (IMF – International Monetary Fund), The European Union, and various cartels and corporations across the earth.

The Crown Identity is kept most secret, and The Crown Bank of England took and assumed control of the United States during the Roosevelt Administration (1901-1909) when its agents, who were really Crown agents (J. P. Morgan), took over 25% of American business.

The Crown has never been the King or Queen of England since the establishment of the corporate body, but the British Monarchy is a figurehead for The Crown, rules parliament in Great Britain and has authority over the Prime Ministers through a Vatican knighthood called the Order of the Garter. The Crown, however, is not the King or Queen of England – they are an established monarchy of the corporate body.

The Crown is the directorate of the corporation, and Great Britain is ruled by The Crown, the City of London which controls the Bank of England – a private corporation. There is a private state existing in Britain within the centre of London. This City, located in the heart of Greater London, became a sovereign-state in 1694 when King William III of Orange privatised the Bank of England, and turned it over to the Vatican banksters who today rule the financial world.

The City/The Crown Corporation is not subject to British Law; it has its own courts, its own laws, its own flag, its own police force – exactly like the Vatican city state and Washington DC Columbia. The Crown Corporation is also separate from the Metropolitan city; its police drive red police cars and their uniforms are different from the Metropolitan Police.

Also, The Crown in London houses the privatised Bank of England and Lloyd’s of London, the London Stock Exchange, and all British Banks. It also houses the branch offices of 385 foreign banks, 70 US banks, as well as Fleet Street newspapers and publishing monopolies. It controls the world media and world intelligence. It is out of The Crown City of London, the headquarters of British Freemasonry overseen by the British Monarchy and the Duke of Kent, that World Freemasonry is governed. This includes the Grand Orient Masonic Order and the Washington DC Scottish Rite.

Rothschild’s coat of arms at the entrance to Rothschild’s burial place at the Ramat Hanadiv gardens in Israel.

In 1945 the Bank of England was nationalised by the Labour Government, and is allegedly no longer a private bank, although it governs the US Federal Reserve. It is ruled over by the Rothschilds, who are bankers for the Pope – guardians of the Vatican Treasury.

Logo of the Inner Temple

The City of London also has its own Lord Mayor, different from the current Mayor, who has the power in The Crown Corporation. When the Queen wishes to conduct business in the City, she is met by the Lord Mayor at Temple Bar. Temple Bar and their associate franchises come from what is called the Four Inns of the Temples of Court – the Inner Temple and the Middle Temple. The logo of the Inner Temple is a white horse on the sunburst seal of the Jesuit Order. The white horse is a symbol of the British Empire / Order of the Garter / Crown Corporation, and is the same white horse which is the symbol of the CFR (Council on Foreign Relations). The white horse is a Jesuit symbol – Pegasus. It is the Jesuit Order that governs the Honourable Society of the Inner Temple. The Inner Temple is the core group that governs the City of London Corporation.

This is the logo of the Council of Foreign Relations as found on the cover of their magazine Foreign Affairs.

The whole Earth is governed by The Crown, through Crown Colonies which belong to The City – The Crown Empire. It governs Africa and still governs China and India. The colonies of the Earth are really just Crown Colonies – The United States of America are states of The Crown.

The Templars of the Crown

This being said, however, it is vitally important to remember the following. The Crown Empire uses commercial law (aka international maritime law, or law of contracts) as its means of control. This law does not apply to sovereign, free men and women.

Your name, when spelt out in all capital letters – as in JULIAN WEBSDALE – is a corporation, a trust set up by the government through the treasury department at your birth. Every time a child is born, a corporation/trust is created using his or her name in all capital letters. They do this because governments are corporations and they operate under commercial law, the law of contracts. The laws passed by governments only apply to corporations and not to living, breathing, flesh and blood sovereign-free men and women spelt in upper-lower or all lower case, as with Julian Websdale, or julian websdale. The living, breathing sovereign man and woman is subject to common law, not the commercial law introduced by governments through legislation.

Franco-Zionist Decimation of Algeria*

When Egypt’s former general Abd al-Fateh Sisi ran out of donors in recent months, it was Algeria he turned to…

By N Thor

Abduleez Bouteflika, Algerian president

Algeria, the largest country in Africa, the Mediterranean and the Arab World, is one of the richest on earth. It has huge gas and oil reserves and a climate and agriculture comparable to California. Yet a corrupt Jewish elite connected to France is monopolizing this Bonanza.

Although Algeria is world 4th largest producer of natural gas, 25% of population live in poverty

Hundreds of billions of dollars have been wasted since president Bouteflika became head of the state in 1999. Our economy is now worse than that of Zimbabwe! Our education system and health system systems are in disrepair. The justice system has been stymied. The country is plunged in disorder.

Once proud Algeria has been turned into a whore… We read in the Algerian independent daily El Watan (Oct. 28 2013):

“The Bouteflika clan perpetrated a lot of damage to Algeria. It would seem that it carries out a plan concocted outside the country.  Bouteflika becoming head of the State was a national disaster. The country has sunk into decline; it is well down the list in all fields.”

But who is Bouteflika. We read in El Watan (May 9 2014):

“Bouteflika has not written books, no biography… One knows almost nothing about his previous life.”

Officially, he was born in 1937 in Oujda, Morocco, and as a Moroccan joined the Algerian independence movement in the 50’s (unlike Morocco, Algeria was part of France). Tell you more? That’s all folks!

In the spring of 2014, Algerian journalist Abdelali Rezagui revealed in Al-Magharibia TV (almagharibia.tv) that the true family name of our president is Belezer, which sounds Jewish. Another lead is the following document found in Gallica’s online library (gallica.bnf.fr):

Mr Levy

This photograph (Left) of a certain Mr Levy appeared in the magazine L’Afrique du Nord Illustrée, issue of Feb. 23 1924.  He has a striking resemblance with president Bouteflika and may be his father. It is noted that he was a financial representative working in Algeria and who frequently travelled to Morocco, notably to Oujda!

We can safely assume that Bouteflika was involved in the 50’s Israeli secret plan of infiltration. He was disguised as an Arab patriot in 1957 when he joined the ALN (National Liberation Army) and at Algeria’s independence in 1962 he was appointed as a minister.

Our president turned up in France, from 2000 to 2003, almost unannounced and for eight times, so that he was received at the airport by the mayor of Paris!

In his 2004 book Bouteflika: An Algerian Fraud, Mohamed Benchicou, an Algerian investigative journalist documented the homosexuality and occult practices of the never-married president Bouteflika.

Mohamed Benchicou paid the price of snooping around that dangerous area. In June 2004, he was sentenced to two years in prison, officially for infraction in money exchange. The real reason behind his imprisonment is the above-mentioned book and his writings in Le Matin, both of which are still censored all over Algeria. PEN (the international association of writers) reported that Benchicou’s prison conditions were harsh, with 50 prisoners to a cell. Benchicou’s health has been deteriorated since his imprisonment and he is now seriously ill. He’s been silenced. Journalists who try to approach him are intimidated or threatened.

General Mohamed Mediene

General Mohamed Mediene, alias Toufik (Left), now nearing the age of eighty, is head of the Algerian secret services (DRS). According to Wikipedia, he is a leading power behind the scenes. He assassinated many Algerian patriots, including the powerful former head of the secret services Kasdi Merbah. One of Malika’s cousins informed me that his father is a Kabylian from Harbil (near Guenzet) and his mother is a Jewess who was living up until 2001 in the block of Kouba, Algiers. He has been the head of the Intelligence service for 22 years!  This crypto-Jew played a key role in the destruction of Algeria (to the benefit of the masonic New World Order). Even at very old age he’s still trying to deceive!

Anissa Boumedienne is the widow of former Algerian president Houari Boumediene (El Huwerry), the nationalist leader assassinated in 1978. Back in the 70s she was known as a Christian. Mohamed Tamalt in his 2001 book Les relations algéro-israéliennes says she is Jewish and a MOSSAD agent. She and Bouteflika are very close and no one has ever accused her of being party to the assassination of president Boumedienne (her husband) who was poisoned.

Mohammed Lakhdar-Hamina is an Algerian film director and one of the most prominent figures in Arabic cinema (Wikipedia is silent about the fact that his mother is Jewish. Like the world’s show-biz stars, he is ultra-liberal and a communist. His most famous work, Chroniques des années de braises (Chronicle of the years of embers), for which he was awarded the Golden Palm at Cannes in 1975, features the Arabs of Algeria, driven by famine, beginning to take up their guns. No reference to their faith or their deep sense of belonging to the Arab nation, only hunger and poverty against feudalist Frenchmen and Algerian Caids. For him it’s not faith and nationalism that kept these Arabs together, but hunger and poverty under feudalism (O dear Marx!). If this is true, then why the Bushmen of South Africa or the Aborigines of Australia have never exercised their hunger power so well politically and militarily as Arabs or Irishmen did?

Nouria Benghabrit-Remaoun

Among the current ministers appointed by president Bouteflika, there are seven women. This is a record in the Arab world. One of them, the education minister Nouria Benghabrit-Remaoun (Left), a feminist and a hater of everything Arab (she often uses the word Islam instead of Arab), has been denounced in the past months by the Algerian daily Ech-chorouk El-youmi (http://www.echoroukonline.com/ara/) as a crypto-Jewess. The councillor at the presidency since the mid-80s is Mohammed Megueddem. In the town of Bordj Bou Arreridj (north-central Algeria) natives say he is the illegitimate son of Mr. Dachache, a Jew, and a French woman, who were living in the town. He was given to El Ayachi Megueddem, an Arab, to be raised as his own son. Many other Algerians, barefaced liars so highly trained in the ways of subterfuge and deception, are rumoured to be crypto-Jews, namely the Trotskyite Louisa Hanoune (president of the Labour Party), ministers Tayeb Belaiz (Justice) and Mourad Medelci (Home affairs), former councillor at the presidency Larbi Belkheir, and former ministers Nourredine Zerhouni and Chakib Khalil.

However, Algeria is not completely lost and not all brave men have faded away. Just a deepening sense of gravity and plans of revenge, for anger is mounting.

Former Israeli Attorney: Israel Staged the Ceasefire Breach*

Former Israeli Attorney: Israel Staged the Ceasefire Breach*

In the biggest blow to Israeli propaganda, which claimed that Hamas broke the ceasefire, former Israeli Attorney General Michael Ben Yair has said that “it was Israel who staged the alleged Hamas breach of the ceasefire in order to create the conditions for assassinating Muhammad Al-Daif, Commander-in-Chief of Hamas’s military wing, Al-Qassam Brigades.

The website of Makor Rishon newspaper said that Ben Yair, who also worked as a judge in the Israeli Supreme Court, tweeted on his twitter account the following:

“There is no agreement and hostilities have been renewed, but who is the culprit? Hamas who wants an agreement with accomplishments or Israel who staged the breach of the ceasefire in order to justify the assassination of Muhammad Al-Daif?

The significance of this testimony lies in the fact that Ben Yair, by virtue of his former position, had knowledge of the fine details of the secret Zionist intelligence work. He conducted investigations into the various aspects of the activities carried out by Israel’s Security Agency, the Shabak, which is responsible for intelligence about resistance leaders named for liquidation.

Ben Yair’s testimony is also significant because it comes in the wake of the adoption by Europe and the United States of America of the Israeli narrative as a result of which they held Hamas responsible for breaching the ceasefire.

It is worth mentioning that the Israeli government’s judicial advisor is also in charge of prosecution in the country.

Ben Yair is considered to be a serious person who is highly respectable within Israel, thanks to his revolutionary decisions during the time when he was in office. It is worth noting that Ha’aretz military commentator Amir Oren alluded in an article he published last Wednesday that there were indications that Israel had an interest in the collapse of the ceasefire so as to justify liquidating Al-Daif after receiving intelligence about his whereabouts.

Oren ruled out the possibility that Hamas was the one who violated the ceasefire, noting that what Israel was in need of was a context that justifies the assassination of Al-Daif after receiving valuable intelligence about his whereabouts.

The high level of co-ordination between Iraq’s federal army troops and Peshmerga forces in the Kurdish region has resulted in successful joint operations against the “Islamic State of Iraq and the Levant” (ISIL) in the north of the country, Iraqi military officials said.

“One of the fruits of the great co-operation between the Iraqi forces and the Peshmerga was the liberation of the Mosul Dam and the surrounding villages, as well as cities and towns in the mountainous province of Ninawa,” Iraqi joint operations command spokesman Qassim Atta said.

The special forces of the Rapid Intervention Brigade and the army’s 4th Brigade supported the Peshmerga forces in a fierce military operation which wrenched the Mosul Dam and the villages of al-Resala, al-Wihda, al-Islah, al-Fatha, al-Jubur and al-Qalaa from ISIL’s grasp, Atta said.

“The operation to control the dam began at 5 a.m. on Monday and ended exactly at 11 a.m.,” Atta said. “The role of helicopters was supportive in silencing the artillery and heavy machine guns that ISIL used to try to impede the progress of the joint forces.”

Operations are ongoing at the west side of the dam, where ISIL elements placed explosives around the headquarters buildings used by the engineers in charge of the management of the dam, he said.

“We hope to cautiously finish clearing those in the coming period to avoid losses in our forces,” he said.

A united front against ISIL

“The federal forces united with the Peshmerga forces 40 kilometres from the dam before progressing together against those gangs, and the provision of minesweepers by Iraqi forces managed to achieve this progress,” Atta said.

The high level of military and intelligence co-ordination between the army and the Peshmerga forces “achieved great success in a few days”, Chief of Staff of the Iraqi Army Babakr Zebari told Mawtani.

The operation resulted in the liberation of nine villages and six towns ISIL was controlling in the north of the country, “oppressing their people and killing whomever they wanted”, Zebari said.

The co-ordinated efforts comprised air cover by Iraqi combat helicopters and the exchange of information on the movements and gatherings of ISIL elements, he said, as well as supplying the Peshmerga forces with modern equipment and weapons in order to reinforce the northern front.

Ministry of Defence spokesman Maj. Gen. Mohammed al-Askari told Mawtani “the ministry equipped the Peshmerga forces with combat equipment and weapons to support their combat positions in the face of ISIL”.

The Peshmerga also received weaponry, he added, from light and medium weapons to anti-personnel and anti-armour rounds, medium range artillery, ammunition and armoured vehicles.

Erbil airport opens to Iraqi army

Ministry of Peshmerga spokesman Jabbar al-Yawar told Mawtani that Erbil International Airport had been designated for the transfer of Iraqi soldiers and military equipment in order to circumvent the enemy from several axes and shorten the road.

“Baghdad is about 405 kilometres away from the city of Mosul, which makes the process of transporting troops and strengthening the military units difficult and costly,” he said.

By opening Erbil airport to the Iraqi army, al-Yawar said, Iraqi forces were able to deploy to the front more quickly and efficiently.

The Ukrainian army resumed shelling of east Ukraine’s Donetsk on Monday morning, with a major strike delivered against the city’s outskirts.

Heavy artillery fire is presumably coming from the city’s airport controlled by the Ukrainian military, eyewitnesses said.

Nine civilians killed in heavy shelling of Donetsk, city council says

Donetsk quickly became deserted after a military parade held by self-defense fighters on Sunday. Public transport almost did not work and all entertainment outlets were actually closed.

Meanwhile, the local militias continued their operations to destroy the Ukrainian army’s subversive and reconnaissance groups in the city. In particular, they spotted and killed two out of three snipers, all of them women, on the roof of a shopping mall. The third sniper managed to escape.

Several hundred captive Ukrainian military convoyed down streets of Donetsk

The local militia also detained a group that was installing radio beacons in the city. The captive Ukrainians said during an interrogation they had been promised 3,000 rubles ($100) for each radio beacon installed in crowded areas.

Intensive fighting near the settlement of Yelenovka 20 km (12 miles) south of Donetsk has paralyzed the work of the Yuzhny bus terminal. All bus rides along the Mariupol-Donetsk route, including international rides, were cancelled on Sunday.

“I wanted to send my grandfather to Russia. Our bus scheduled to go from Donetsk to Krasnodar at 4:40 p.m. Moscow time was cancelled. We were told that we could get a full refund for our tickets. I didn’t receive a definite answer when I asked about whether bus traffic would be resumed,” a local female resident called Yekaterina said.

A lot of people stayed at the bus terminal until Sunday night. Buses running at short distances along the routes to Makeyevka and Khartsyzsk that had not yet been closed also had to stay at the bus terminal on Sunday.

In this situation, private tax drivers raised their fares several-fold. They were charging almost 300 rubles ($8) for a ride from Donetsk to Volnovakha compared with the standard fare of 75 rubles ($3).

The city’s second bus terminal, Krytiy Rynok, was 80% empty on Sunday. Only 5 route taxi cars could be seen running in the city.

The eastern Ukrainian Donetsk and Luhansk regions have been the scene of fierce clashes between troops loyal to Kiev and local militias as the Ukrainian armed forces are conducting a military operation to regain control over the breakaway territories, which on May 11 proclaimed their independence at local referendums and now call themselves the Donetsk and Luhansk People’s republics.
