“get ready for a wild ride” … the union corruption probe


Hang onto your hat alright, Michael Smith has lit the fuse, Grace Collier throws another bomb: Grace Collier on union corruption and the lonely, shattered lives whistleblowers face

Hang on to your hat: union corruption probe will be a wild ride

Grace Collier has a great column in The Australian today.   She talks about the union Royal Commission and the Victoria Police investigation into the AWU – then sets her sights on the fashionable types who found it easier to sniff the breeze than do their research.

“It disappoints me how important people in powerful positions, in media and politics who have never actually worked in a union sniff disbelievingly at those who come forward to blow the whistle. Powerful, important people, whether left or right, associate with and assist other powerful, important people. When nobodies from outside the club come forward to cast aspersions on somebodies within the…

Google’s obnoxious ethics …


Michael Smith asks for the Trade Practice Act to be used against Google’s obnoxious web activity, and brings out the leftist trolls in droves. You may want to save the tweets of all those loons for future reference, Mr Smith. It shows the state of mind of the irrational side of politics very well.

TRADE PRACTICES ACT 1974 No. 51, 1974 – SECT 52

Misleading or deceptive conduct.

52. (1) A corporation shall not, in trade or commerce, engage in conduct that
is misleading or deceptive.

If you publish an ad or other communication that warns against visiting a certain website because the website is a known distributor of MalWare that is used to steal identities and money it had better be true.

Google itself says this of our site:

Over the past 90 days, michaelsmithnews.typepad.com did not appear to function as an intermediary for the infection of…

The Sandy Hook Warren Report

A Different Perspective

The Sandy Hook Warren Report

Police Open Trunk of Honda Police Find Weapon in Trunk

It has now been a year since the country was treated to the Sandy Hook horror show.   And now, at long last, the state of Connecticut has finally issued a final report; a second assault, if you will; but this time upon our intelligence.

“While no report is statutorily required…”   

From said report, here is one of my favorite sentences:  “It is not the intent of this report to convey every piece of information contained in the voluminous investigation materials developed by the Connecticut State Police and other law enforcement agencies, but to provide information relevant to the purposes of this report.”  

That says it all right there since it is obvious that the report is intended to stand as the last word on a lie; and just like the infamous Warren Report, to support a…

Australian trade unions. The Royal Commission we had to have

Kangaroo Court of Australia

The Royal Commission into trade union corruption announced on Monday by the federal government is a real game changer on many fronts and maybe many more depending on how the Royal Commission performs. For starters it is the first Royal Commission that has been driven by the online community, although I am sure that no one in the MSM (Mainstream media) will tell you that.

While the paperwork does not give a time frame, it has been reported that the RC is scheduled to last for 12 months and if it sticks to that time-table it will be one wild ride trying to cram all the corruption into those 12 months of the commission.

I will just address a few issues the Royal Commission raises in this post and the rest as the RC unfolds.

Royal Commission details

The Royal Commission was announced on Monday the 10th February 2014 at…

Science Fairs Make Scientists

Watts Up With That?

Guest Essay by Kip Hansen

I complain a lot about poor science being done by what I assume to be professional scientists. I’d like to think that if I were in their labs, I would do better. [ *** see note ]

If we want good science, and we do, we need good scientists. If we want good adult scientists, we need to get the kids – junior high and high school kids — started off in the right direction and on the right foot.

I spent the last two days judging a science fair here in Cape Canaveral, Florida, along with 50 or more other dedicated people.

The real reason for flooding in Somerset Levels? Not global warming – the pump was turned off!

Watts Up With That?

Huntspill_sign We’ve previously covered the absurd claims that “global warming” was the cause of flooding in Somerset, UK here and here , with yesterday, even a senior scientist at the Met Office disagreeing with the spinmistress in charge , Julio Slingo’s claim about an AGW connection. Now we learn the real reason. The ROF pumping station was turned off in 2008 and nothing was done to replace it, while at the same time the Huntspill sluice gates to drain water to the sea seemed to be improperly managed by the EA.

I’m repeating the comment here to give wide distribution.

Bishop Hill writes: Commenter “Corporal Jones’ Ghost’ left this comment on one of the flooding threads.It looks to be quite important.


I want to tell you what really has happened on the Somerset Levels.

I am remaining anonymous for good reason, I think you’ll understand why.

Snowden, Booz Hamilton, Carlyle, and the spider web

Snowden, Booz Hamilton, Carlyle, and the spider web

by Jon Rappoport

February 14, 2014


Edward Snowden worked for Booz Hamilton, a private company, and was assigned by his employer to work at the NSA.

The infamous Carlyle Group owns a majority stake in Booz Hamilton.

Carlyle manages global assets of roughly $170 billion. The companies it invests in employ 650,000 people.

Others have run down the important names connected to Carlyle, from George HW Bush to Frank Carlucci to James Clapper, James Baker, etc.

With Booz Hamilton, Carlyle, and NSA, we are in the house of the military-industrial-intelligence complex.

With a cursory glance at a search engine, you’ll also be able to make connections between Carlyle and Goldman Sachs.

This is a section of the spider web that operates nations and banks and wars and surveillance.

Enter Edward Snowden with his 20,000 or 58,000 or 1.2 million or 2…
