AM Comment: This is a response to sanctions we put on Russia. Five dollars says those like Alan Jones will try to spin this around. Where’s Australia’s sanctions on Ukraine for killing their own citizens? What a fricking joke! Old Aussie farmer isn’t laughing though. Good work Alan Jones and the Abbott clan.
(Pickering Post) MH17 is fast emerging as a secondary emergency as social media becomes the primary arsenal of Ukraine […] combatants. Truths that were once concealed by tyrants and terrorists are now visible in gory detail on any computer screen, and not before time.
The pictorial horror of war is no longer sanitised, it’s on-line, and mainstream media is reluctantly being forced to compete for truth in news.
Julie Bishop is choosing her words more carefully in Kiev and starting to doubt the motives of illegitimate, self-appointed President Poroshenko who is systematically murdering thousands of his own Ukrainian citizens. He has little interest in MH17, his interest is genocide.
The Ukrainian military is bombing its own undefended eastern cities, razing schools, hospitals, suburban infrastructure, water and electricity supplies.

[AustraliaMatters comment] AM doesn’t endorse Pickering’s support for open air prisons in the middle east, but his take on MH17 is worth noting. We added the above video. Be warned–the video is very graphic. It’s horrible to watch, but important as it gives you the raw citizens point of view as to whats really going on. The pro-Nazi (you read that right) Ukrainian govermnet has no problem killing it’s own people, so why would they care about a plane full of foreigners that includes 38 Australians? Answer that my dear honest ant-Nazi Australian govermnet!
(RT) WikiLeaks has accused the Australian government of blindfolding the public with the worst suppression order in “living memory.” The media gag bans Australian news outlets from reporting on a multinational corruption case for reasons of national security.
The whistleblowing organization published the details of the “unprecedented” gag order issued by the Australian government on Wednesday. The super injunction passed by the Supreme Court of the state of Victoria prohibits Australian media organizations from publishing material on a multi-million-dollar graft case involving high-ranking officials from Malaysia, Indonesia, Vietnam and the Reserve Bank of Australia (RBA).

(AustraliaMatters) Australian YouTuber Vicky articulates our anger regarding Abbott going along with America to create a “Trans Pacific Partnership”, AKA TPP.
If the odd ‘F’ bomb offends you, then don’t watch this video, rather click here for the 10/10/13 Lateline take on this treason that amongst other things, will allow unelected foreign corporations the right to sue the Australian government, AKA we the Australian tax payers.
The TPP links Vicky recommended are here and here.
