Gore heckled at climate speech

Former Vice President Al Gore’s global-warming speech Saturday night at Mizner Park drew about a thousand attendees, as well as more than 200 loud protesters.

Stationed outside the Mizner Park Amphitheater, the protesters jeered at Gore as he took the podium and at those walking into the open-air venue to listen to the speech.

“This is the most dangerous crisis we’ve ever faced,” Gore said of climate change. He spoke over a chorus of boos from protesters, who were monitored by at least a dozen uniformed city police officers.

Many of the protesters were with the groups Collegians for a Constructive Tomorrow and South Florida Tea Party, the latter of which feels that Gore’s views will eventually lead to increased taxes and flawed business legislation.

The protesters carried drums, bullhorns and posters. One read “Practice what you preach,” accusing Gore of not living a green lifestyle. Another poster read “The masses follow the asses,” depicting the protesters’ opinion that Gore’s message is not backed by scientific evidence.

Gore, meanwhile, in his presentation laid out data that he said was compiled by the world’s leading scientists and supports the theory of global warming. The speech carried much of the same content and rhythm as Gore’s Oscar-winning 2006 documentary, An Inconvenient Truth, which turned him into a leading international voice on the issue of climate change.

Gore’s latest book on the subject, titled Our Choice, was published earlier this month.

Australian Prime Minister Wants Asian Union By 2020

Australian Prime Minister Wants Asian Union By 2020

The Australian
June 5, 2008

KEVIN Rudd wants to spearhead the creation of an Asia-Pacific Union similar to the European Union by 2020 and has appointed veteran diplomat Richard Woolcott – one of his mentors – as a special envoy to lobby regional leaders over the body.

The Prime Minister said last night that the union, adding India to the 21-member APEC grouping, would encompass a regional free-trade agreement and provide a crucial venue for co-operation on issues such as terrorism and long-term energy and resource security.

And he outlined his plans for his visits to Japan and Indonesia next week, saying he would explore greater defence co-operation between Australia, Japan and the US – an approach that had been championed by John Howard.

Speaking in Sydney last night to the Asia Society Australasia Centre, the Mandarin-speaking Mr Rudd said global power and influence was shifting towards the Asia-Pacific region and that Australia must drive the creation of a new global architecture for the Asia-Pacific century.

“We need to have a vision for an Asia-Pacific community, a vision that embraces a regional institution, which spans the entire Asia-Pacific region – including the United States, Japan, China, India, Indonesia and the other states of the region,” said the Prime Minister.

Overheard in Australia, Bush tells minister ‘we’re kicking ass’ in Iraq

Raw Story
September 5, 2007

Things are going well in Iraq, according to President George W. Bush.

Upon his arrival in Sydney Wednesday, Deputy Australian Prime Minister Mark Vaile “inquired politely” about his stopover in the war-torn country.

“We’re kicking ass,” Bush said.

The remark was overheard by a reporter for the Sydney Morning Herald and caught by an Australian blog.

According to the paper, Bush arrived in Australia in a “chipper mood.”

“Despite his unpopularity in” Australia, the paper said, “Bush used yesterday’s media conference with [Prime Minister John] Howard to try to bolster the Prime Minister’s electoral prospects in the next poll. Labor was quite happy at the spectre of one unpopular leader backing another but should not underestimate the defiance and polished performance Bush is able to muster. On Iraq, climate change, Kyoto and nuclear power, he backed Howard to the hilt. He claimed diplomatically he did not want to interfere in the Australian election and said he looked forward to today’s meeting with Kevin Rudd,” leader of the Australian Labor Party.

“Apart from his introductory remarks, Howard never spoke during the press conference,” the paper added. “It was the George W. Bush show.”

The Herald asserted that Howard’s staunch position backing the Iraq war “is growing.”

“He implied that those who argued against the war in the first place had no role in the current debate,” the article said.

Fake Osama Bin Laden Arrested At APEC

The Daily Telegraph
September 6, 2007

ELEVEN members of The Chaser have tonight been charged after causing the first embarrassing APEC security blunder.

Among those charged under new APEC legislation was Chaser Chas Licciardello, who dressed as Osama bin Laden and managed to ride a fake motorcade through two police cordons into the red zone.

Licciardello and the other were charged with “enter restricted area without justification” after the bogus motorcade made it down Macquarie Street into the fenced off area not far from the Intercontinental Hotel where President George W Bush is staying.

“While it appears it was a prank, the current APEC security environment isn’t the place to do it in,” said Detective Superintendent Ken McKay, head of the APEC Investigation Squad. “Who they are is irrelevant – they were charged like anyone else who breaks the law.”

All were granted conditional bail and are due to appear in Downing Centre Local Court on October 4.

The team from the satirical TV program The Chaser’s War on Everything were in a convoy of three cars and two motorbikes which was reportedly ushered through two checkpoints in Sydney’s APEC security “red” zone.

The convoy was pulled over in Macquarie Street on a block adjacent to the InterContinental Hotel, where US President George W Bush is a guest during the APEC summit.

“It’s fair to say we never intended to break the law, if we have broken the law, which we don’t think we have done,” said Chaser Craig Reucassel.

Despite their arrest, The Chaser managed to get their footage back to the studio. A team of ABC staffers have been arguing with detectives as to the legality of them being in the area.

The Chaser stunt, however, has angered senior police and the NSW Police Minister David Campbell.

NSW Police Assistant Commissioner Dave Owens said police were investigating “a possible breach of the restricted area”.

As a result of today’s breach, new measures were being added to what he described as a multi-layered security operation.

“I’m not embarrassed at all. What I am is very angry that such a stunt like this would be pulled,” Mr Owens said.

“We have 21 world leaders here and while I enjoy, like everyone else, a good laugh, this wasn’t funny.”

NSW Police Minister David Campbell said he was particularly disappointed The Chaser production team had disregarded specific requests from police not to go too far in their pursuit of satire.

“I don’t see a funny side to what’s happened today. I don’t see a funny side at all,” Mr Campbell said.

“I’m extremely concerned people would take the sense of security so lightly.”

Mr Campbell refused to criticise the police who reportedly waved The Chaser team through checkpoints. He congratulated officers who made the arrests.

Foreign Minister Alexander Downer denied The Chaser team had revealed a chink in APEC security, saying as they were arrested, the system worked.

But he told an APEC news conference: “Whatever you think of the humour of The Chaser … they were clearly not going to harm anybody in a physical way.

“They presumably were, as is the nature of their show, aiming to humiliate a lot of well-known people.

“In my particular case on this one, I managed not to see them, so it just shows how lucky you can get,” Mr Downer said, smiling.

“The point is they were in any case arrested, so I think the security works.”

Explaining how they executed their stunt, Chaser members said they had dressed up a convoy to look like an official Canadian motorcade, on a day during which a number of official motorcades crossed the city.

Southern Cross Broadcasting reported that the convoy carrying the Chaser team passed “through two checkpoints around the hotel before one of The Chaser pranksters jumped out (dressed) as Osama Bin Laden”.

“They had been waved through, they had three cars … big black Hummer-style cars decked out with Canadian flags on the front,” a reporter said.

“A couple of Chaser team members were in the back of each of these cars and rest of the team were dressed up as bodyguards.

“As many as 11 people were detained and two of those were Chaser team members.”

Chaser team member Chris Taylor told a Fairfax publication the motorcade comprised “three cars, a couple of motorbikes, and a lot of crew”.

He said the Chaser convoy had Canadian flags attached to the cars and “Canada” signs visible in the front windscreen. “No particular reason we chose Canada,” Taylor said.

“We just thought they’d be a country who the cops wouldn’t scrutinise too closely, and who feasibly would only have three cars in their motorcade – as opposed to the 20 or so gas guzzlers that Bush has brought with him.”

He said the motorcade had been allowed into the red zone, past two sets of gates, before being pulled over on the corner of Bridge and Macquarie streets.

Chaser crew members had initially been detained in their cars while “police on the ground” waited for special units to arrive, Taylor said.

ABC spokesman Peter Ritchie said ABC lawyers and management were in discussions with police.

“They were shooting for the program, they were at the hotel, police detained them and ABC lawyers and management are with the boys,” Mr Ritchie said.

The Southern Cross Broadcasting report said “security services went crazy when they realised something had gone wrong. They very quickly detained these people,” a reporter said.

Authorities have warned there will be a presumption against bail for people arrested in the APEC security zone.

“The simple message that everybody needs to understand is that if you misconduct yourself during the APEC period in a security zone, there is a jail bed waiting for you,” Attorney-General John Hatzistergos said last week.

The Chaser’s War on Everything resumed on ABC TV last night and included a number of stunts aimed at testing APEC security.

Morrow had revealed last weekend the Chaser team was planning something “extreme” for APEC.

Chaser team members yesterday staged a stunt during an anti-APEC protest, with Taylor appearing as a police officer on a pantomime horse – a dig at the fact equine flu has prevented NSW police horses being used for APEC security.


Pro-Bush Group Allowed, Protest Group Banned at APEC

Pro-Bush Group Allowed, Protest Group Banned at APEC

Demonstrators refuse to submit to repugnant totalitarian orders, promise civil disobedience, police hype threat of riots

A pro-Bush organization have been allowed to demonstrate within the 3-mile-wide security cage that has been erected around the business district in Sydney for the APEC summit, while authorities have banned other protest groups from even marching up to the police line outside in a brazen display of favoritism and double standards.

Members of the Stop Bush Coalition are now promising non-violent civil disobedience as the only recourse to counter court orders that have set the precedent to effectively ban free speech in Australia.

The Aussies for ANZUS group, a Neo-Con organization that professes its love for Prime Minister John Howard and President George Bush, has been granted permits to access the restricted security zone and assemble near the InterContinental Hotel, where Bush will be staying for the duration of the conference.

Police restrictions on banner sizes and other measures have also been waived for benefit of the organization.

In contrast, the Stop Bush Coalition have been told by the NSW Supreme Court that they will be arrested if they merely attempt to march up to the police line outside the security perimeter. A list of other potential protest routes presented to the authorities was also rejected, effectively characterizing a complete ban on any form of protest anywhere in the city.

In Australia, free speech is only permitted for those who agree with the government and the Neo-Con policies of Prime Minister John Howard.

“PROTESTERS have been denied permission to march to the edge of police lines during an anti-APEC rally in Sydney on Saturday,” reports the Courier Mail.

The NSW Supreme Court today granted Police Commissioner Andrew Scipione’s application for an order preventing up to 20,000 people marching to the corner of George and King streets.

Outside the court, rally organiser Alex Bainbridge would not rule out going ahead with the march to King Street, and accepted that he and others faced the possibility of arrest.

“The court has made very clear that we have got a right to protest. The court order today prohibits nothing, our rally and demonstration will be going ahead. As we have always said we intend for this to be a peaceful protest,” Mr Bainbridge told reporters.

Meanwhile, police are gearing up for a “full scale riot” having acquired new taser weapons and water cannons in anticipation of a little ‘homeland repression’ for those who dare speak out against the APEC gangsters and their agenda for global tyranny.

As we reported yesterday, New South Wales (NSW) state Police Commissioner Andrew Scipione characterized the protests as “an unlawful act” during a press conference and urged others not to get involved.

Over 5,000 thugs have been drafted in to patrol the city, including military troops as well as secret service personnel. Accredited photo journalists have been threatened for simply taking pictures of the security fence and residents are being harassed and asked to show their ID at checkpoints throughout the city. Armed jet fighter and helicopter gun ship patrols are whizzing around the skies as Australians get a chance to experience the kind of hellish measures that the would-be dictators attending APEC would like to impose on a permanent basis.

Should the expected riots take place, we’d be loathe to overlook the culprits who always seems to instigate them – the authorities themselves, via their complete infiltration of a hired goon squad known as the black bloc anarchists.

Last month, police in Canada were outed as they posed as violent anarchists during the SPP summit in Montebello. A You Tube video caught the undercover cops disguised as masked protesters wielding rocks and attempting to stage a riot. Authorities were later forced to admit that they had infiltrated agents as a means of gathering intelligence on the protest groups.

Previous violence in Genoa, Seattle and Miami all came as a result of a deliberate policy on behalf of the authorities to incite riots in order to justify a brutal police response and demonize peaceful protest groups in the eyes of the watching world.
