This week’s film of the week is an absolute must-watch documentary for anybody remotely interested in what’s happening in the present and what lies in store for the future. Continue reading
Rupert Murdoch lost nearly his entire investment in MySpace the other day when he sold the failing social network to musician and actor Justin Timberlake and an ad agency he backs for some US$30 million. This was a good deal less than the US$500 million-plus Murdoch paid for it.
Why did Murdoch make such a bad investment? Because he hoped to use the network as a vehicle from which he could disseminate news. He wanted to make MySpace into a mechanism to deliver current-events content. When it didn’t work out – and he must have known that fairly soon – he obviously lost interest. And as his interest waned, so did MySpace.
This speaks to Murdoch’s desperation – and mainstream media’s generally. In a digital world, he is willing to burn US$500 million simply to confirm that a social network is not a news delivery system. I could have told him that for a much lower fee.
This also shows us the importance of news to the powers-that-be. The Anglosphere elites – for whom Murdoch evidently and obviously works – are determined (thus far without much success) to find a way to protect their failing information franchise.
Nothing in the past 300 years or so, while the elites have advanced their one-world-order, has been so devastating to their plans as the Internet and the rise of the alternative media driven Internet Reformation. It has poisoned the chalice and befouled the well; it has unbalanced the clarity of the concoction and clouded it with truth. A bitter brew … for them!
Western power elites will do ANYTHING to reclaim their news franchise. When one looks at 20th century media development one is struck by its massive size and strategic composition. Every part of Western 20th century media worked seamlessly together. The whole idea was to create an increasingly militarized society that would accept global government as part of the natural order of things..

GreenGas again sent registered mail to PM Harper and Mr McGinty reminding them ( as they have every six months for the last 2 yrs ) that there is a lower cost, clean, safe alternative to tar sands oil or drilling which could save Canadians money and help clean up their environment. No reply at present.

ORLANDO, Fla. — Four more activists have been arrested for feeding pancakes and donuts to the homeless in downtown Orlando.
Police officers handcuffed the activists and loaded them into a police van Monday just after they had distributed food to about 30 homeless people in defiance of a city ordinance.
The Orlando ordinance requires groups to get a permit to feed 25 or more people in parks in a downtown district. The rules also restrict the groups to two permits per year for each park.
The law was passed in 2006, but Orlando Food Not Bombs challenged it in court. In April, a federal appeals court in Atlanta ruled that the Orlando law was legal.
Last week, four other activists were arrested for violating the law.

one cannot exclude that in the future there will be…armed intervention
The Arctic covers 30 million square km, has 24 time zones and is home to just four million people. It also has vast reserves of oil and gas, not to mention diamonds, platinum, nickel and iron.
Those reserves have been known about for centuries, yet a combination of new extraction technology and rising demand means that the human race is ready to start ripping them out – raising the threat of devastating pollution to a uniquely clean environment and worsening the problem of global warming, even as the ice caps are melting.
Greenpeace claims they could even cause a war in the region, with releases this month by Wikileaks, the whistle-blowing website, showing how the scramble for oil and gas in the Arctic is sparking military tension. Norway’s foreign minister is quoted as saying regular military flights by the Russians up and down Norway’s coast had helped to justify the purchase of four new F-35 Joint Strike Fighter combat aircraft to the Norwegian public. Meanwhile, the head of the Russian navy is quoted as saying ‘one cannot exclude that in the future there will be a redistribution of power [in the region], up to armed intervention.’
Instead of seeing the melting of the Arctic ice cap as a spur to action on climate change, point out campaigners, Arctic nations are preferring to invest in military hardware to fight for the oil beneath it.
PLAN DE GOBIERNO DE KEIKO FUJIMORI EN PERU SOLO COLOCARA A LAS MUJERES COMO AMAS DE CASA Y COCINERAS Y PROMOVERA LAS ESTERILZIACIONES MASIVAS AL IGUAL QUE EL GOBIERNO DE SU PADRE EL JAPONES DICTADOR ALBERTOFUJIMORI
If she wins the election Keiko Fujimori will hand he country to the bankers and speculators. She also plans to extend her father’s program of forced sterilizations of poor women.
.El Plan de Gobierno de Fuerza 2011 no contempla ninguna medida efectiva para la salud reproductiva de la mujer por lo que las prácticas de esterilizaciones masivas compulsivas serían una práctica habitual en caso de instalarse Keiko Fujimori en el gobierno, vaticinó el analista político peruano Mauricio Quiroz T., VicePresidente del Instituto Pueblo Continente.
En las tres páginas de su Plan de Gobierno de solo 58 páginas, dedicadas al sector salud, no existe una sola medida sustantiva al respecto y menos sobre investigar las mas de 300,000 esterilizaciones masivas practicadas durante el gobierno del japonés Alberto Fujimori, que gobernó dictatorialmente al Perú en la década del ’90.
Además, contra la experiencia internacional y el notable desarrollo laboral femenino, Keiko Fujimori pretende que las mujeres peruanas solo estén en casa cocinando mejor pues solo busca educar a la madre en “prácticas nutricionales”, conforme señala su Plan de Gobierno en su página 17.
Un Gobierno de Fuerza 2011 y Keiko Fujmori, entonces, no sólo protegerán a los funcionarios corruptos de su administración , como ya hemos denunciado anteriormente (http://colombia.indymedia.org/news/2011/05/121943.php sino que continuarán las prácticas masivas de esterilizaciones contra la voluntad de las mujeres.
No en vano, agregó el analista, tiene entre sus asesores al médico Alejandro Aguinaga, uno de los promotores de dicha medida durante la dictadura fujimontesinista peruana.
