Australia planning to block 10,000 websites

And will you know if it has even happened as the news information you receive is censored in itself (either enforced or by self censorship)?

The Greatest "Conspiracy theories" in history:
Typical lazy mainstream journalism. Of the ones that aren’t crackpot, frauds or false flags:
- The FEMA coffins – probably perfectly innocent, however we won’t know if it is not until too late. Anyway Governments have never lied throughout history have they........
- Fluoridation – read my blog & the links last week. Plenty of scientific evidence against it, and remember Britain is very rare amongst western countries to forcibly medicate its population through fluoridation. Gotta ask yourself why.....
- Pearl Harbour – Without doubt the US had cracked the Japanese naval codes. Plenty of evidence. Its just not the way that it is taught in schools. Very convenient for Roosevelt to get US into war in Europe that he could never have done otherwise
- Peak Oil – Debatable when, but inevitable that it will happen, just it may be a while down the track, however cost of production of hard to access resources will push prices up inexorably
- Black Helicopters – no one believed stealth existed until it became public.. plenty of hi-tech military stuff out there we don’t know about, so more than possible
- Moscow apartments – almost definitely KGB. Its not as though Vladimir would have any qualms about it, and they “have a lot of form” as a cop would say
- July 7th – the jury is out, though a lot of inconsistencies not least the blast patterns in trains pushing the metal up into the carriage (whereas it should have gone out – therefore bomb under not in train). Have the UK secret services got "form"?
- Shergar – IRA. They found the horse's body recently
- Shakespeare - interesting one, but there will never be enough evidence either way to say whether he was a front for Christopher Marlow or not. Not bad for a lowly educated boy from Brum who never went overseas but based many of his plays in Italy.....
- North American Union – Very real. Just as real as the EU, which evolved from the EEC, just as NAU is coming from NAFTA. If you had told a German 20 years ago that within a decade he’d have had currency union with the Italians and Greeks what would he have said? Its all about business.
- Princess Di – I actually believe it was an accident. Bloody convenient for the multi-billion dollar arms (landmines) industry however.........
- Jesus married – It is actually more unlikely that he wasn’t
- New World Order – Don’t get me started
- Fake Moon Landings – Amazing jump forward in special effects for 2001 Space Odyssey filmed in 1968 by Kubrick who went into self imposed exile and seclusion in St Albans straight after moon landings. All of a sudden in 1969 the US, after losing every other step so far, “wins” the space race using technology with less umph than your old BBC computer....and never been back in 40 years.....or indeed man has never again ventured outside the earth’s magnetic zone which protects us from all the solar radiation
- JFK & 9/11 – The so called truth is a damn sight less plausible and these after-all are “conspiracy theories” in themselves

Quote of the Week:

"It is not enough for journalists to see themselves as mere messengers without understanding the hidden agendas and the myths that surround it"
- John Pilger
