  • Don't Take Your Guns To Town? (Bury Them?)

    People better start paying attention. This picture below shows Secretary of State [UNITED STATES' corporation] John Kerry signing the U.N. Arms Treaty. (This is of the UNITED NATIONS' corporation.)

    I've long said (following great work from Valued Cardholder) that Australia itself (COMMONWEALTH OF AUSTRALIA corporation) is now a 'state' franchise of the UNITED STATES' corporation of the UNITED NATIONS' corporation.

    And that since the signing of the Treaty of Rome (1 Jul, 2002), we are now under what is called the "International common law" as are most all states of the UNITED NATIONS' corporation.

    Yet it comes as a surprise to some, when the Attorney General of the UNITED STATES' corporation Eric Holder, is currently arguing before the Supreme Court (the US' highest court) that United Nations treaties trump the United States Constitution.

    So where does that now put the COMMONWEALTH OF AUSTRALIA corporation and the (so called) Australian "law" that we are now under?

    Exactly where it has been maintained we are situated. Lock this in?

    From the linked article below:

    < The funny thing is that the U.N. Arms Trade Treaty specifically prohibits the exportation of small arms to countries if there is a reasonable expectation that they would be used against civilians. If Holder wins this case and ushers in the implementation of the treaty, his involvement in Fast and Furious, leading to the death of countless Mexican civilians, would make him an international criminal.

    [Voice of Reason then adds] But since Holder would be in charge of investigating himself for international crimes, he'd likely be acquitted… >

    That remains to be seen. No need to be told once again just what this U.N. "International common law" and the ICC (itself) answer to, at Law.

    Yes. It tells us - within the September 1st, 2013 Pope's 'Motu Proprio':

    ........... "A separate section is dedicated to crimes against humanity, including genocide .... and other crimes defined by international common law, along the lines of the 1998 Rome Statute of the International Criminal Court."

  • Looksmart - “Lazarus With A Triple Bypass”? Well, Not Quite...

    From my Facebook just now...

    • Ross Bradley .
      David et al ... I studied a segment of the stock market for many years.

      I follow a supposedly "busted arse" company called Looksmart.

      Not quite as bad as the global "slavery" we have, yet the (total) FRAUD within the markets globally, must run a close second to slavery.

      From this 2003 article, it was said;

      < Separately, Payne said MSN is sticking with paid-inclusion partner LookSmart, which allows Web site operators to pay to have more of their pages included in Internet searches.>

      http://www.webdesignsnow.com/news/082203b.html

      I've watched as this company (Looksmart) has been covertly building what I feel is not to far short of being a huge global platform & not unlike the global telecommunications network, itself.

      And in all this time, the Looksmart Co has been perceived by all as being going no-where other than, "going backwards".

      It was in or, around march 2011 was when I asked the question in a blog-post re; a "Dumbing Down" of Society?

      In this post I also asked another question as to where does a company called "Clickable" come up with a platform that it can offer Global scale from?

      - http://tinyurl.com/kq8ax8z

      In Looksmart's Annual report (2013), they tell us: "The year 2013 was a busy year for LookSmart, Ltd...... that included buying of the assets of the former Clickable.com" - http://tinyurl.com/qdphan8

      Tonight comes the rumour: http://tinyurl.com/qb7hd4c

  • Desperado [We People], Why Don't We Come To Our Senses?

    Were the opening lines in the Eagle's song referring to us, as people?

    "Desperado [people], why don't you come to your senses?

    You been out ridin' fences for so long now. Oh, you're a hard one. I know that you got your reasons..."

    Shouldn't we change it to?:

    Desperado [We People], Why Don't We Come To Our Senses?

    That song; https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=kCdjvTTnzDU

    Why is the Supreme Law omnipotent? [http://tinyurl.com/lfblmp7]

    Because without it, there would be no Law. No "Rule of Law".

    We can't have a corporate UNITED NATIONS (a dead fiction entity), as any "rule maker", after-all. Especially as it's own corporate member 'states' are all clearly under, the UNITED STATES' corporation.

    Here's just why an "International common law" (tiny.cc/wnudlx) and the ICC (bit.ly/1tizt1p with both, clearly being United Nations' initiatives and yet - are both answering to the Supreme law), are somewhat "toothless" when it comes to the crunch?

    According to this aljazeera.com article:

    < .......... The charge of selective justice is also trumped by the fact that the ICC goes to only those places where it has jurisdiction and only when the crime was committed by a citizen of a state party or on the territory of a state party, or if the case is a referral from the UN Security Council.

    ......[And] Countries such as the United States, whose former leaders have been accused by some of war crimes in places like Iraq, cannot be brought before the ICC because they are not signatories to the Rome Statute that paved the way for the formation of the court. >

    ("and yet - are both answering to the Supreme law")

    "Supreme law" ???

    It tells us - within the September 1st, 2013 Pope's 'Motu Proprio':

    ........... "A separate section is dedicated to crimes against humanity, including genocide .... and other crimes defined by international common law, along the lines of the 1998 Rome Statute of the International Criminal Court."
