Hillary Clinton bursts out into
laughter after her fellow inter-
viewee says, "then we ought
to take [Iran] out" - Feb 2012
Hillary Clinton is not a liberal - no more than Bill Clinton was a liberal - these people have absolutely no moral compass or political principles. They are opportunists of the worst kind - they are virtual psychopaths who will do anything and say anything in order to obtain power. Hillary Clinton was a "goldwater girl" back in 1964 - she was a right-wing Republican. But when she found it more convenient to pretend to be a liberal in order to obtain power, then she pretended to be a liberal. But make no mistake - the Clintons have NO principles at all. 1

See inside for other stories about Iranian vessel with relief supplies.
Iran has sent an aid vessel to carry emergency supplies to the people of Yemen who have been illegally invaded and attacked by Saudi Arabia - an ally of the US, of Israel, and of Australia. The situation is explosive - locally and globally. The people are starving. Therefore people on the aid ship are trying to make sure that the world knows that this is a ship bringing help, and should be given safe passage. One such person is Caleb Maupin, who emailed several people on Mon, 18 May 2015 16:55:48 +0430 with the following message:
"The Kingdom of Saudi Arabia, which is mercilessly slaughtering people in Yemen, has absolutely no right to inspect this vessel. Neither does the United States of America or Israel. The Iranian government has made that absolutely clear, and all of us in the delegation of peace activists from Germany, France, and the United States absolutely agree with this decision. An inspection from the United Nations or the International Red Cross/Red Crescent Society would absolutely be permitted and welcomed. These are international bodies delegated for such tasks. However, allowing an inspection of this ship from the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia would recognize that somehow the people of Yemen are the property of the Saudis, which they are not. Yemenis are fighting and dying to assert this fact each day.

I want to bring attention to a place many horse people are quite familiar with, the Echuca horse sales. Over the years hundreds of horses have gone through the sales in hopes of finding a forever home. Though this may give horses a second chance it doesn't change the fact that the condition some of these horses come to the yards in is appalling.

Editor's introduction: Whilst Amnesty International attracts many well-intentioned people, young and old, the organisation has a disturbing record of taking sides and pushing propaganda that actually benefits the US/NATO war machines and their take-over bids in the Middle East. This side-taking has damped down international critical analysis that might have saved Iraq and Libya from total destruction and which might still save millions of innocent Syrians from having their civilisation erased from the map. Rick Sterling's article, which sets out Amnesty International's record in the Middle East, is a lesson to those who don't look carefully into brand labels, because unfortunately, Amnesty International looks more and more a brand label - but what is it actually selling? Your careful reading of the article inside could make a difference to world peace, currently teetering in the Middle East. - Candobetter.net Editor.

Colonel Lawrence Wilkerson, a former Chief of Staff to former secretary of state, Colin Powell, says that the US government’s aspiration of turning Afghanistan into a stable place is nonsense. Only third parties, who are interested in stability, can resolve the problem, he says.
“The best we can hope for is that those powers – India, China, Pakistan primarily, but Iran too, and other powers with dog in a fight, Turkey for example – need to handle this situation on their own merits,” he said. “They’ve got a critical interest in the stability or near stability in Afghanistan.” Article originally published with videos at RT at http://rt.com/news/usa-afghanistan-war-expensive-337/

Foreign workers line up to apply for H1B visas to replace domestic workers in the United States
If President Obama, The IMF, The WTO and legions of New World Order stalwarts have their way. Your job, your children’s future, and the future of the United States will be assimilated to the corporacratic borg. Obama is diligently attempting to get the Trans Pacific Partnership passed. Corporations are heavily lobbying for the deal as legislative sycophants, pawns of their corporate masters, like John Boehner, rally support for a trade agreement that will make NAFTA look like child’s play.

Sister Diana Momeka
The US State Department has been criticized for its move to deny a visa to an Iraqi Christian nun planning to reveal ISIL atrocities to Congress.
Sister Diana Momeka was part of an Iraqi delegation that was scheduled to testify before the House and Senate Foreign Relations Committee later this month.
Momeka has been a frank supporter for the Christians who have been killed and deported by the ISIL 1 terrorist group.

The Coalition Government today announced that it is taking action to strengthen the integrity of our foreign investment framework.
The Government recognises that foreign capital is vital to help grow our economy and provide jobs. In the case of residential real estate, the current foreign investment regime aims to channel foreign investment into new homes for Australians to purchase or rent.

"Yarmouk is only a few kilometres south of Damascus. It was once a thriving centre of colour and life with a vibrant market that made it much more than just a Palestinian enclave. Over the last four years though it has been the centre of so much violence and death that it is now the most festering wound on the ailing Syrian body. And perhaps the most tragic dimension of Yarmouk at the moment is the way the suffering of these people is being manipulated to provide a new rationale for Western military intervention."

“The suggestion by the Centre for Independent Studies that the family home should be included in the pension asset test and be reverse mortgaged for an income stream would cost pensioners dearly,” said Manager, Research and Advocacy, Amelia Christie.
“Forcing pensioners to take out reverse mortgages in order to put food on the table is both heartless and poor policy – the only winners would be the banks.

Update (4/5/15): Yemeni army, Popular Committees thwart Saudi naval attack on Aden | PressTV
After the Saudi aggression on Yemen and the aerial bombardment campaign on its different regions, more than 2600 innocent lives have been lost, most of who are women, children and the elderly. The silence of the world on such an atrocity is heart breaking to say the least. To add to this, more than 4000 people have been injured who cannot receive medical treatment due to the lack of supplies in this poverty stricken country.
For current information about Yemen, see Saudi Aggression Against Yemen | PressTV. Other informative sites are RT, Sputnik International and Global Research. This article was sent to me by the [nosyriaintervention] mailing list. I am unable, at the moment, to provide a link to the original article. - Ed

Video and text inside: Recently the Federal Government released another Intergenerational Report. It would be easy to dismiss it as a political stunt. After all the well-known scientist they got to spruik it, Dr Karl Kruszelnicki, has now done just that, correctly lambasting it for its failure to talk about climate change. Any discussion about the future which leaves out climate change is farcical.
And these Reports, first commissioned by Peter Costello, are absolutely a Trojan Horse for the right wing agenda of winding back the social contract, dismantling the benefits achieved in Australia with a lot of blood, sweat and tears over many years, in health, education, and retirement incomes, which make Australia one of the best countries in the world to live in. They run a scare campaign about population ageing designed to convince us that our health, education and retirement incomes systems are not sustainable. Speech by the Hon. Kelvin Thomson, Federal Member for Wills, to the Protectors of Public Lands Annual General Meeting Saturday 18 April 2015
