Read this article the other day about Cheney down under. This article is from 02/01/07. We don't get enough news from Murdochland and we sometimes forget that Auz is our watchdog down under for those northof them- ALL those! How important is our pet Howard to us? This article illustrates how obedient this little poodle is from down under.

John Howard's servility to the US is even greater than Tony Blair's and has earned him the nickname Bush's deputy sheriff. The conspiracy between Washington, the media and politicians is eroding the country's freedoms.
I like how they call Blair "Princess Tony" in Britain, thus implying that he is Bush's Bitch as well.

The article was written by John Pilger, who seems to be loved by many smart Auzzies. Short article, but the comments are excellent.

It seems that the new Mexican president, Felipe Calderon, is fast joining Howard as another of Bush's foreign lapdogs, according to this report from TIME magazine:

[url=http://www.time.com/time/magazine/article/0,9171,1597507,00.html]Bush's New Friend in Mexico
[/url]

Quote:
After 100 days on the job, he is emerging as President George W. Bush's anti-Chávez--a conservative counterweight to a resurgent Latin American left led by Venezuela's gringo-bashing President Hugo Chávez. Leftists won seven of 11 Latin presidential elections last year, and Calderón beat his left-wing opponent, Andrés Manuel López Obrador, by only half a percentage point. Losing Mexico, the U.S.'s third largest trading partner, would have sunk America's foundering influence in the region.



Quote:
Calderón has long advocated laissez-faire policies, and he relied on the support of Big Business to get elected. In an interview with TIME last fall, Calderón conceded that he needs to "reduce the power" of monopolies and create "more competitive market conditions." But as President, he has yet to offer anticipated legislation to fix problems like the country's feckless tax system or its antiquated, state-run energy infrastructure.

[url=http://www.rawstory.com/news/mochila/Howard_s_reign_may_be_over_in_Austr_11242007.html]Howard's reign may be over in Australia :D

[/url]

Labor leader Kevin Rudd appeared set for a sweeping victory in elections in Australia on Saturday, a win that would end a conservative era and usher in major changes to policies on global warming and the Iraq war.

A Labor win also would hand outgoing Prime Minister John Howard a humiliating end to a career in which he became Australia's second-longest serving leader, and who appeared almost unassailable as little as one year ago.

Potentially adding insult to injury, Howard was among government lawmakers in danger of losing his seat in Parliament — a result that would make him only the second sitting prime minister in 106 years of federal government to be dumped from the legislature.

Howard's reign is officially over!
http://news.sky.com/skynews/article/0,, ... 64,00.html

I remember this nut had already said: "If I was running al-Qaeda in Iraq, I would put a circle around March 2008, and pray, as many times as possible, for a victory not only for Obama, but also for the Democrats,"

The winner, the head of the Labor Party Kevin Rudd has promised to sign the Kyoto Protocol on global warming and withdrawing Australian troops from Iraq.

HOORAY! Thanks for posting the info, Ostie!

Let's just hope the new PM won't cave to the siren songs the Bush admin will be singing to him.

This is great news- another blow to American hegemony. Now if the elections weren't rigged in America, we would probably see the same result and be out of Iraq and Afghanistan by spring '08.

The coalition of the dazed and conflagration of the gullibles are dwindling down to the one real problem at work here- the United Snakes of America- as the leaders are lower than a snakes belly and yellow too. Cowards- hiding behind their military and us human shields. :x

Hangings too good for them!! I think a good old fashioned biblical stoning is in order- with the Iraqi's throwing the stones.

Ahhhhhh-divine justice.

The "man on horseback" mentality, the belief that a leader's strength is more important than where it leads them, defines a population that is vulnerable to dictatorship.

This is not to call Bush a dictator or suggest that he wants to be one. But let no one believe that it couldn't happen here, as has happened so often elsewhere.

It has happened here, and by the design of better statesmen than Bush.

John Adams, an original American patriot, signed the Alien and Sedition Acts that put people in prison for what they said or wrote.

Abraham Lincoln, one of our three greatest presidents, suspended the writ of habeas corpus.

Woodrow Wilson, a scholar by profession, jailed and deported people for opposing a war that, nearly a century later, still raises the question of what American interests compelled our participation.

Franklin D. Roosevelt put 110,000 men, women and children in concentration camps because of their race.

In each instance, danger was the pretext for suspending democracy and decency.
Precedents we don't want to repeat. The constitution needs a major rewrite to prevent abuses of power like these. Australia modelled its constitution after the American model and so did South Africa. If you support the constitution the way it is written, then you accept slavery, racism and bigotry as guaranteed rights of ""We, the People"" and despotism as your guiding influence. This has to be dealt with. If you can accurately define the "WE", then you know who the constitution was written for. (Hint- it wasn't for "the people", unless you're one of the rich and greedy.)

Let's not let them continue to tell us what they will do to us anymore. Time to get rid of all these phonies who are corrupted by power. The people of Australia are not amused with their elites- lets hope that spreads here and the people can all their asses.
