the news interpreted for you...

news ST

I have news for you... When you think that news is news... it's just a psychological trick to massage your brains... And News Corpse aka the merde-och press has expertise beyond a Freudian dream on this subject. What do you see in the picture above? 

Women to fix rugby league shouts the headline... For a while the media has regaled us with the stories of boofheads being boofheads, drugs in the "sport" and one more boofhead pissing inside his head. Scandal of all scandal, which was treated by The Roast (ABC-TV) with a longish segment but a short clip of a clever chimp pissing in his own mouth... So the NRL is asking for more women on its boards... NOT A NEW STORY. Would that stop the boofheads? I don't think so, and why is this item "an exclusive" to the Sunday Telegraph when it should be plastered all over the entire MMMM (mediocre mass media de mierda)? 

Well, my friends, this is not about rugby league... This is about cajoling women into believing that the Sunday Telegraph loves women especially when, next to the "exclusive" article on rugby league, there is an article about "OLD-TIME ROMANCE IS BACK" with a picture of a woman either "having conquered her man", being higher than he is" or "being carried happily by her man"...

May be I see things that are not there, but trust me I know how the geezers at the DT think. And this little exercise is all about repairing the damage Tony Abbott has done to the trust of women. This front page has many levels of manipulation that could entice more women to buy the dreadful paper and read articles that promote the little turd Tony neolithic ideals...

Ah... and I forgot to mention the pizza wars... Massive news when our turdy Abbott regime has sent some Tamils, possibly back to their jailers and/or torturers...

And, YES, THE OLD-TIME ROMANCE had NEVER LEFT... It's just that the MMMM like the ST wants to tell you blah blah blah, that is has come back... Twaddle of the high degree just to manipulate your brains.

today, the turdograph excels itself...

Today on the 9th of July 2014, the Daily Telegraph shouts: ASYLUM ASSASSIN... Too gross to even show you a picture... The concept here is to associate the words "Assassin" and "Asylum" in a psychological trick in which you will subconsciously relate that all Asylum seekers are Assassins or dangerous.

Not a new trick, but very effective if one is a bogan, a racist, a right winger or simply a person who believes in morality black and white, while being grey themselves. 

don't buy murdoch's paper and all that rubbish...

 

From the mad man mouth:

The car industry is leaving us,” Murdoch said. “All I can see from this distance is the prospect of a lot of unemployment unless we can get small people starting businesses and some bigger industries coming too. We can be the low-cost energy country in the world. We shouldn’t be building windmills and all that rubbish.”

Murdoch said climate change should be approached with great scepticism. “Climate change has been going on as long as the planet is here. And there will always be a little bit of it. At the moment the north pole is melting but the south pole is getting bigger. Things are happening. How much of it are we doing, with emissions and so on? As far as Australia goes? Nothing in the overall picture.”

The worst case scenario was that there would be a 3C rise in temperature over 100 years and only “one of those [degrees] would be manmade”, Murdoch said.

http://www.theguardian.com/media/2014/jul/13/rupert-murdoch-labors-nbn-was-ridiculous

 

These are the sad ignorant words of a mad rabid man who has a gripe about people trying to propagate knowledge about the planet... Yes, I could not agree more that "Climate change has been going on as long as the planet is here" . But the point here has been that his writing minion, like Chris Kenny, have confused the concept of "climate change" and "global warming" to suit their own ignorant narrative. 

Yes "climate change" has happened since the year dot, but the present GLOBAL WARMING is induced by our burning of EXTRA carbon in fossil fuel... And as far as predictions can be made, this one is going to be a massive scorcher within 200 years.

A few years ago, decent businessmen kept telling me "what's a couple of degrees extra in the atmosphere and a few inches of sea level rise..." Now Mr Murdoch is already mentioning THREE degrees Celsius and enough rise in the sea level to destroy the Maldives... He does not care...

Rupert has been able to enjoy life as best as one can with richness from hard work and much gamble on the human nature. I cannot deny that. But his hard work has been to publish mostly lies for cash and push people into corners. May someone in his camp have the decency to tell all about the phone hacking and other shenanigans that helped Uncle Rupe maintain his power. May someone break his bubble before he dies... A bit like bursting Rolf Harris image and facade of decency. 

Ah yes, Rupert also talks about the increasing ice in the south pole... In a global warming situation this can be explained scientifically. The warmer the ice shelf gets, the more ice it would accumulates because the wetter it gets. (see my explanation to this phenomenon at: ). But the reality as well has been the ice is only "expanding" in one part of Antarctica and "furiously" melting in other parts. Many scientific studies around Antarctica have shown that the sea water around it, is warming up.

 

And let me add up: the worst case scenario of VERY CONSERVATIVE scientific MODELS of global warming is more than 6 degrees Celsius rise by 2100. There was a strong rise in the world temperature during the 1980-90s... Such strong rise can (and will) happen from the end of 2014 onwards. 

Shut up, Rupert, you are a disgrace.

it's off to work we go...

And when Uncle Rupe says: "All I can see from this distance is the prospect of a lot of unemployment unless we can get small people starting businesses and ..."

 

With these wisdomish words from Rupert, I suddenly imagined the seven dwarfs "it's off to work we go" leaving Snow White at the mercy of the bad wicked witch... (the Simpsons episode last night had a bit of it) Yes... The main problem with "starting businesses" is that you need customers.

In a society where consumerism is often at saturation point, this can be difficult unless other businesses bite the dust. And it can be iffy... One day your customers love you but the next, there is no-one in the shop: ask the rag trade. And Uncle Rupe should know, his newspapers are loosing circulation to the news online. His bum line (sorry bottom line) is only protected by selling ultra right wing messages supported by advertisers with messages designed to tell us to consume more. Rupe also finances blockbuster movies that are there to distract us from the main game, being that we are sheep, that from time to time we get fleeced and some of us are led to the abattoirs, no matter how good looking we are...

 

So far his mate Abbott has only pushed unemployment up. killed a lot of jobs, pushed people into poverty and is an ignoramus on urgent scientific matters. And Uncle Rupe tells us not to build houses so close to the shoreline...:

 

"If the sea level rises six inches, that's a big deal in the world, the Maldives might disappear or something, but OK, we can't mitigate that, we can't stop it, we have to stop building vast houses on seashores.

What a vast imbecile.

 

 

And to finish here, the scientifically predicted (conservative estimate) MINIMUM sea level rise on present trends by 2100 is at least 45 centimetres which is 18 inches, not six inches as told by Uncle Rupe. But according to other reliable sources, it's likely to be a bit more than one metre by 2100 and about 3 metres by 2200.

And as the great man says: If the temperature rises 3 degrees in 100 years, "at the very most one of those [degrees] would be man-made,". 


Rubbish. One has to know that natural forces (photosynthesis, earth wobble, volcanoes, sun, etc) have "equalised" for the last 10,000 years to actually slowly reduce the temperature of the atmosphere. This was the prognosis of science till the 1940s until it was realised this prognosis did not match the observations. The culprit has been identified: CO2. Scientific records show that with rise of CO2, there has always been a rise of temperature, in similar atmospheric conditions to those today, for more than 500,000 years. The variations of CO2 due to natural conditions has not reached more than 300 ppm in the atmosphere — also linked to an increase of 10 degrees Celsius in comparison to the minimum ppm (around 180) — for more than 3 million years. 
Present concentration of atmospheric CO2 is 400 ppm. Considering that a lot more CO2 is absorbed by the oceans, these are turning "acidic". Observations of shells, plankton and other animals show the effect of this newly acquired acidity under global increase of CO2. 
So where does this excess CO2 in the atmosphere and in the oceans comes from? Since the late 1890s, it has been observed that industrialisation and the use of fossil fuels has increased the atmospheric CO2 concentration more than half as much as the natural status (observed)... and possibly 10 times more in the oceans (estimated). There are some elasticity, sharp rises and plateaus in the climatic feed-back mechanism — but the general trend does not look good. Uncle Rupe is wrong as he attributes only one degree rise to human activity... 
Present "climate change" or GLOBAL WARMING as it should really be known is 99.9 per cent human induced. 
Global warming is real... 

 

 

disseminating false information like plastering icing on a cake

 

President Barack Obama is regarded as the worst US president since World War II according to the most recent opinion poll conducted by the Quinnipiac University Polling Institute in Connecticut. Quinnipiac is one of the most respected polls in the US, but this is absurd. President Obama has many problems, many of his own making, but he inherited a whirlwind from his predecessor, George Bush, who was a trillion-dollar disaster.

Yet it is Obama who was chosen by 33 per cent of those surveyed as the worst president of the modern era, while Bush came second, chosen as worst by 28 per cent.

I’ve spent the past month in the US, where I lived for 12 years, and I was struck by the impact of the miscalculations, insularity and ineptitude of President Bush’s defining decisions that are still rippling through American society. The events of recent weeks reveal the scale of the cost of his prodigiously wasteful invasion of Iraq in 2003.

In 2013, the Watson Institute of International Studies at Brown University studied the direct cost of the war and came up with a figure of $US1.7 trillion. The indirect costs would take this figure to at least double that figure. That is a heavy burden of wasted productivity even for America.

It was President Bush, and his top advisers, who argued that the US would establish a pro-western democracy in Iraq, which would influence its neighbours. Instead, Iraq has ceased to exist as a viable nation and, along with Syria, is engulfed by the schism between Sunni and Shia Muslims. The leadership of Iraqi Prime Minister Nouri al-Maliki has been a catastrophe. The region is defined by more violence, more division and more repression than existed before the Iraq war.

Gus: President Bush, Prime Ministers Blair and Howard have one major link in common: Rupert Murdoch. Without Rupert disseminating false information like plastering icing on a wedding cake, THEY COULD NOT HAVE CONVINCED ANYONE about going to war in Iraq. Full stop... With his clever and forceful armies of right-wing propagandists, with his regular visits to the White House and to Number 10 Downing Street and having little John Howard on a leash, Uncle Rupe was a propagandist of massive proportion.
Good for Paul Sheehan to point that George W Bush was the worse president in 100 years or possible the worst ever. 

But nowhere does Sheehan makes the following connection:

Without Rupert Murdoch printed lies to the nations, the war would never have happened. And Murdoch still lies on other subjects, including global warming.

 

sadden by the news...

As many people would be sadden by the news of an airliner being shot down by Ukrainian rebels, one as to be horrified by the callous Sun, a... you've guessed it, a Murdoch paper.

Putin blames Ukraine for loss of Flight MH17 with 298 innocent souls but DOESN'T deny Russian separatists shot it down with missile - as McCain warns there will be 'Hell to pay'

 

  • Malaysian Airlines flight MH17 shot down over territory held by Pro-Russian rebels in eastern Ukraine

  • Russian President Vladimir Putin blamed the Ukrainians for not having 'peace' in the land

  • But he did not deny that pro-Kremlin separatists brought down the flight from Amsterdam to Kuala Lumpur

  • U.S. Senator John McCain said there would be 'Hell to pay' if this was the case

  • Ukrainians called it 'terrorism' and released a recording between a fighter they claimed was a Russian Intelligence Officer
    •  and a separatist who apparently shot down the plane and admitted it was 'civilian'

  • Ukrainian interior ministry says plane was shot down by a Russian-made BUK surface-to-air missile

  • Dutch authorities say at least nine Britons, 154 Dutch and 27 Australians are among the dead

  • Reuters reported earlier that 23 Americans were among the dead but the State Department have not confirmed any

  • President Obama was criticized for saying it was a 'terrible tragedy' in very brief remarks ahead of a speech

  • Questions over why the flight was flying over Ukrainian airspace in what is effectively a war zone

  • All airlines now saying they are avoiding the area

justice be done...

Mr Abbott described the disaster, which has killed 298 people and at least 27 Australians, as ''a grim day for our country and it's a grim day for our world''.

''As things stand, Madam Speaker, this looks less like an accident than a crime,'' he said.

''And, if so, the perpetrators must be brought to justice.''

-------------------------------------

Gus: I agree with Tony Abbott: bring the perpetrators to justice — as long as those who invaded Iraq in 2003 are also brought to "justice"... Blair, Howard and Bush and their supporters, including Mr Murdoch.

our sabre rattling PM...

Yesterday Tony Abbott squarely placed the responsibility of the missile attack on flight MH17 on Vladimir Putin. Putin says he had nothing to do with it and that the Ukraine government was responsible for it by its desire to fight autonomy in Eastern Ukraine. 

But what was also annoying was that Tony Abbott several times said that "this country" would be in mourning, etc. Well, Tony never mentioned that "this country" has a name: Australia. 

As well, for whatever reason, possibly one of his staff having read one of Gus's comments and passed on that he should mention it, Tony claimed that when the US down Iran Air flight 655 — the US did the "right thing" and apologised for it being an "accident". Far from it. For many years the US claims was mostly "excuses" which were never accepted by Iran — and no apologies. How the US mistook a large passenger aircraft for an F14 aircraft remains a mystery.

Tony Abbott's ventures in history is always full of rabid right-wing bigotry and misunderstanding. His recent views on "Japan's heroic soldiers" during WWII would not pass mustard in most countries — China, the US, Taiwan, Korea, The Philippines, et all — nor could Tony's view be seen as very clever by most war survivors in RSL clubs in Australia.

 

 

2. Iran Air Flight 655 (1988)

Iran Air Flight 655, en route from Bandar Abbas in Iran to Dubai, was shot down on 3 July 1988 by surface-to-air missiles from the US warship USS Vincennes. All 290 passengers – including 66 children and 16 crew – died. Many of those on board were Iranians on a pilgrimage to Mecca, The Guardian says. US Navy officials claimed that they had mistaken the passenger jet for an incoming Iranian F14 jet fighter, and say that the plane was not travelling on its usual course and that it didn't respond to requests to change direction. Iran said that the attack "could not have been a mistake" and was a "criminal act" and a "massacre".

The United States did not apologize to Iran.[7] In 1996, the United States and Iran reached "an agreement in full and final settlement of all disputes, differences, claims, counterclaims" relating to the incident at the International Court of Justice.[8] As part of the settlement, the United States did not admit legal liability but agreed to pay US$61.8 million, , amounting to $213,103.45 per passenger, in compensation to the families of the Iranian victims.

Iran Air still uses flight number IR655 on the TehranDubai route as a memorial to the victims

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Iran_Air_Flight_655

-------------------------

 

It is clear that, unlike the US in the case of IR655, Russia is not responsible for this MH17 tragedy. Though a lot of press is after Putin's blood for his government having "possibly" armed the rebels — which the US is doing similarly in Syria. War is a sad business. 

 

Our sincere sympathy for all the families of the dead... 

 

who watches sky news anyway?... murdoch addicts?

 

Sky News has apologised profusely after one of its presenters was shown rifling through the personal belongings of a stricken passenger at the MH17 crash site.

In a live broadcast on Sunday afternoon, Sky News presenter Colin Brazier was shown picking items – including a set of keys and toothbrush – out of the opened luggage before saying: "We shouldn't really be doing this, I suppose."

The footage was met with a storm of criticism online, including media professor Joe Watson who described it as a "horrible moment for journalism" and others who accused Sky News of invading the privacy of the deceased.

BBC Sport presenter Jacqui Oatley said she was "absolutely astonished" by Brazier's actions, while BBC radio presenter Shelagh Fogarty added: "Sky!!! Get your reporter to STOP rummaging thru belongings at #mH17 crash site. "We shouldn't really be doing this" NO S**T Sherlock !! Those items are essentially sacred things now for the relatives. Just appalling."
