American subversion of Australia

asylum-camp

Zionist-subverted America is presently obsessed with alleged interference in its elections by Russians but resolutely ignores US interference in all countries of every country on earth, variously through political subversion, backing coups or outright invasion. Similarly, US lackey Australia is indulging in extraordinary xenophobia and China-bashing over alleged Chinese subversion of Australia but utterly ignores massive US interference in Australia.

Thus, for example, the right-wing US Murdoch media empire has cornered 70% of city daily newspaper readership in Australia. Indeed the US CIA and UK MI6 were involved in the 1975 Coup that removed reformist Australian Labor PM Gough Whitlam. In June 2018 US lackey Australia’s Coalition Government and Labor Opposition rushed through civil rights-violating espionage and foreign influence legislation that is implicitly aimed squarely at China that denies such activity. However Mainstream Australia utterly ignores the huge actuality of perversion and subversion of Australia by the US, UK and Apartheid Israel as set out in the website “Subversion of Australia”: https://sites.google.com/site/subversionofaustralia/ that includes a detailed and well-documented 24,000-word analysis of how America has betrayed, deceived, robbed, perverted, subverted and soiled its craven lackey Australia (see Gideon Polya, "US perversion, betrayal, deception, robbing, soiling and subversion of Australia", Subversion of Australia, 3 July 2018: https://sites.google.com/site/subversionofaustralia/us-perversion ).

Of course America subverts all countries but set out below is a succinct, chronologically-based summary of 40 areas of US subversion of its century-long ally Australia.

 1. America and Australia have a common history of genocide of Indigenous people. Outstanding anti-racist Jewish American journalist I.F. Stone famously told journalism students: "Among all the things I'm going to tell you today about being a journalist, all you have to remember is two words: governments lie”. American Government lied from Day 1 about the genocidal basis of the American Revolution. It wasn’t just about “No taxation without representation” and “an inalienable right to life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness” (for White folks), it was also substantially about the right of the 13 American colonies to invade and ethnically cleanse Indian lands to the West. The American Indian Genocide involved 75 million Indigenous Indian deaths for the hemisphere and 10–12 million north of Mexico. In Australia the Indigenous population dropped from about 1 million in 1788 to about 0.1 million a century later through introduced disease, dispossession, deprivation, violence and forced child removal. Unlike North America, there have been no Treaties with the Indigenous people of Australia and the present disreputable Coalition Government has even rejected the unanimous Indigenous key request for a purely consultative Indigenous representative body. Of course the horrendously deadly consequences of introduced disease to unprotected Indigenous populations had been known for centuries prior to the North American and Australian genocides.

2. 19th century gold rushes, burgeoning population, racism and Indigenous genocide in America and Australia. Genocidal racism and the burgeoning White population of America and Australia exacerbated the genocide of Indigenous peoples through disease, deprivation, violence and forced child removal. Gold rushes to California and to Australia in the 1850s exacerbated this genocidal process. Genocidal racism was implicit in the US 1830 Indian Removal Act that demanded removal of all American Indians from East of the Mississippi. The last massacres of Indigenous Australians occurred in 1928 at Coniston in Central Australia and the last massacres of Indigenous Americans occurred in Nevada in 1911. Of course violent deaths represent only a small percentage (circa 5%) of avoidable Indigenous deaths from invasion, disease and imposed deprivation. Thus about 0.1 million Indigenous Australians were killed violently in the so-called Frontier Wars, but Indigenous Australian premature deaths from deprivation since 1788 in the ongoing Aboriginal Genocide and Aboriginal Ethnocide total about 2 million, noting that a similar carnage has applied in the ongoing Palestinian Genocide by US- and Australia-backed Apartheid Israel (2.3 million Palestinian deaths from violence, 0.1 million, or from imposed deprivation, 2.2 million, since the British invasion of Palestine in WW1).

 3. Slavery, racism and Apartheid of America and Australia. America, like Australia, was founded on invasion, theft, genocide and slavery. While slavery was ostensibly abolished after the American Civil War, subsequent the discriminatory, excluding, disenfranchising and segregationist Jim Crow state and local laws continued to be enforced until 1965, most notably in the Deep South, excluding African Americans from public facilities, voting and decent education. However now-entrenched neoliberalism has imposed a modern, “politically correct” and wealth-based segregation, inequity and disenfranchisement on African Americans living under contemporary American Apartheid [53]. Thus Dr. Michelle Alexander (author of “The New Jim Crow: Mass Incarceration in the Age of Colorblindness”): “If you take into account prisoners, a large majority of African American men in some urban areas have been labeled felons for life. (In the Chicago area, the figure is nearly 80 percent.) These men are part of a growing under caste—not class, caste—permanently relegated by law to a second-class status. They can be denied the right to vote, automatically excluded from juries, and legally discriminated against in employment, housing, access to education, and public benefits, much as their grandparents and great-grandparents were during the Jim Crow era”. Of course vicious neoliberalism in America today means the “New Slavery” of scores of millions of Black, Hispanic and White “working poor” in America suffering the added insult of deadly exclusion from health cover. 27% of African Americans live in poverty.

 White Australia suffered the same spiritual affliction as “Big Brother” White America, namely espousal of genocidal racism and slavery. Australia was founded in 1788 on the slave labour of convicts and thence for 2 centuries on the effective slave labour of surviving Indigenous people on rural properties that has continued to within living memory. Indeed the present-day state of Queensland (named, like the state of Victoria, after the genocidal racist, world number 1 opiate drug pusher and serial mass murderer Queen Victoria) still refuses to hand back wages removed by the state from effective Aboriginal slave labour. The British abolished slave labor in the UK but readily replaced it with the effective, work-or-die slavery of British rural workers displaced by the Enclosures. Similarly, the British then abolished slave labour in the British Empire but replaced it with the effective slave labour of the Indentured Labour systems variously involving Indian and Chinese “temporary slaves” in the Caribbean, South Africa, Australia, and Fiji. Australian “Blackbirders” were heavily involved in the kidnapping of Melanesian South Sea Islanders (“kanakas”) for effective slave labour on Fijian or Queensland sugar plantations. These adventures were associated with the entirely preventable introduction of disease that swept away huge numbers of Melanesians in a Fijian Genocide and a Melanesian Genocide (the British and Australians knew about the deadly consequences of introduced disease from centuries of European invasion of the Americas). Thus in Fiji in 1875 about 40,000 Fijians were killed in a measles epidemic introduced from Sydney, Australia. The Fijian population was drastically reduced from 150,000 to 110,000, this necessitating the introduction of Indentured Labour (5 year slaves) from India (called “Girmityas” from mispronunciation of “Agreement”) to work on the Australian and British sugar plantations of Fiji, a brutal system that only concluded in 1920 (all the grandparents of my dear late wife Zareena nee Lateef were Girmityas). Today Australia has US-style working poor (3 million Australians live in poverty out of a population of 25 million) and it exploits even more impoverished temporary visa holders from overseas to work under illegal low-pay conditions on farms and urban businesses.

4. The American Great White Fleet, racism and the White Australia Policy. The Great White Fleet was the popular name given to the US Navy battle fleet that by order of US President Theodore Roosevelt circumnavigated the world in 1907-1909 on a public relations tour. The Australian War Memorial (that honors 103,000 Australians who died in foreign wars at the behest of Britain or the US but steadfastly refuses to acknowledge the circa 100,000 Indigenous Australians who died defending Australia from genocidal British invasion), has a glowing account of White Australian enthusiasm for the visit to Sydney (New South Wales), Melbourne (Victoria) and Albany (Western Australia) by the Great White Fleet in 1908: “Celebrations for the arrival of a United States Navy fleet in Australia in 1908 had been surpassed only by those conducted for Federation [1901]. The Prime Minister, Alfred Deakin, ignored Britain's concerns and overlooked protocol when he invited the Americans to visit. Sixteen warships were a dramatic presence when they arrived in Australian waters. In Sydney 80,000 people stood on South Head to watch them enter Sydney Harbour. Crowds, parties, speeches and parades greeted the fleet at each port it visited. Great excitement accompanied the visit of the United States fleet in 1908, and many souvenirs were produced to mark the event. The American sailors liked Australia too: over 300 of them deserted while in Australian ports. [White] Australians gave the US fleet a tremendous welcome when it visited Sydney and Melbourne in August-September 1908. The large white ships were a reassuring sight to those who were nervous of Asia, particularly Japan's growing naval power”. White Australia was obsessed with the so-called “Yellow Peril” from Asia, particularly after Japanese victory in the Russo-Japanese War in 1905.

This White Australian enthusiasm for the American Great White Fleet was mirrored in the racially non-specific Immigration Restriction Act of 1901 that was profoundly racist and became known as the White Australia Policy ( 1901-1974) that did not actually specify undesirable races, but left exclusion up to Ministerial discretion. The White Australia Policy was abolished by the short-lived (1972-1975), reformist Whitlam Labor Government in 1974 before it was removed in a UK-US-backed Coup in 1975. White Australia’s Great White Friend, America, has similar racist policies that, for example, prevented many African Americans from voting until the 1960s. Indeed Native Americans were not citizens of the United States until 1924, and some states barred Native Americans from voting until 1957. Chinese immigrants were given the right to citizenship and the right to vote by the US Magnuson Act in 1943. However felony laws prevent many adult male African-Americans from voting today. White Australia finally actually counted Indigenous Australians as citizens after a Referendum in 1967, nearly 60 years after the visit of the American Great White Fleet.

5. US and Australia in WW1. We honour all those who risk their lives in serving their country. However we must condemn immoral and war criminal politicians who commit their countries to immoral and illegal wars. WW1 was an immense and utterly avoidable tragedy for all concerned, including Australia that was roped in under Labor renegade and British imperialist PM Billy Hughes (PM 1915-1923) as a loyal part of the British Empire. Hughes was expelled from the Labor Party in 1916 over the issue of conscription of soldiers for war but remained as PM leading a conservative alliance that was a precursor of the conservative United Australia Party- Country Party Coalition of the 1930s and thence of the pro-war, conservative Liberal Party-National Party Coalition presently ruling Australia. Nevertheless conscription for military service was successfully opposed by Australians in WW1 because of consciousness among Irish Catholic Australians of the brutal British rule in Ireland and the memory of the British-imposed Irish Famine (1840-1850, 1 million starved to death and 1.5 million fled overseas, with many dying in transit). 416,809 Australian men enlisted from a population of about 5 million, 62,000 were killed and 156,000 wounded, gassed, or taken prisoner. Total military and civilian casualties in WW1 totalled more than 41 million, including over 18 million deaths and 23 million wounded. The deaths included about 11 million military deaths and about 7 million civilian deaths. The flower of British and Australian manhood was lost or mangled in WW1. The global, post-WW1 influenza epidemic was spread by returning soldiers (notably in India) and killed 50-100 million people.

The US under Woodrow Wilson entered WW1 in 1917 on the side of the British, this representing a huge victory for the British Zionist Lobby and their US associates (as a consequence 5-6 million Jews were to die under the vengeful and genocidal German Nazis in WW2) . In the infamous 1917 Balfour Declaration the racist UK Foreign Minister, Lord Balfour, sent a letter to the racist Zionist leader Lord Rothschild offering Palestine to the Zionists as a Jewish Homeland in an effort to garner US Jewish support and to get Russian Zionists to try to keep Russia in the war against Germany. The Zionists scuttled US approaches to get Ottoman Turkish withdrawal from WW1 with continuing catastrophic consequences. Serial invader and warmonger Woodrow Wilson (1856-1924) was awarded the Nobel Peace Prize 1919 and was the 28th President of the US from 1913-1921. The Nobel Peace Prize has been awarded 98 times to 131 Nobel Laureates between 1901 and 2017, 104 individuals and 27 organizations. Of the 104 individuals awarded Nobel Peace Prizes, 4 were pro-war US Presidents, namely Theodore Roosevelt, Woodrow Wilson, Jimmy Carter and Barack Obama). While re-elected in 1916 on an anti-war slogan (“He kept us out of the war”), Wilson subsequently declared war on Germany (1917), with the sinking of the arms-carrying “Lusitania” being used as an excuse. America has always used an excuse for war, from the Alamo (war on Mexico), the sinking of the Maine in Havana Harbor (the Spanish-American War), the sinking of the arms-laden Lusitania (US entry into WW1), Pearl Harbor (permitted to occur notwithstanding and US and UK pre-knowledge; US entry into WW2), the Korean invasion of their own country (Korean War), the fictional Gulf of Tonkin Incident (US Indo-China War), alleged threat to US students (US invasion of Granada), General Noriega's longstanding CIA-linked drug involvements (US invasion of Panama) and the US Government’s 9-11 false flag atrocity (the genocidal Iraq War, Afghan War and US War on Muslims).

While getting great credit for the Treaty of Versailles and the League of Nations, Wilson’s great failure was not getting the US to actually join the League of Nations. The punitive Treaty of Versailles inevitably lead to WW2 and Wilson’s acquiescence with the Balfour Declaration led to the Palestinian Genocide and the current Zionist-backed US devastation of Muslim countries from Occupied Somalia to Occupied Afghanistan and the US robot-bombed valleys of NW Pakistan. Under Wilson the US had an ugly record of violent intervention in Latin America. In 1913 the US opposed Mexican President Madero whose assassination led to armed Mexican struggle (1913-1917). US forces invaded and occupied number of Central American countries in the Wilson era, including invasions under Wilson as president, specifically Haiti (1915-1934), Nicaragua (1912-1915) and Panama (1908, 1912 and 1918). US forces also invaded Russia in 1919 under warmonger Wilson. Woodrow Wilson’s European policies led to American involvement in WW1, the failed Treaty of Versailles, the failed League of Nations, WW2, the Palestinian Genocide and the current Zionist-backed US devastation of Muslim countries. Woodrow Wilson’s violent Latin American policies continued those of racist imperialist Theodore Roosevelt and set the tone for a further century of US violence in Latin America. Further, it took half a century to overcome the sorts of domestic racist segregation legislation introduced by Woodrow Wilson. The vengefully Australia-backed Treaty of Versailles led inexorably to WW2.

6. US, UK and Australia invasion of Russia in 1919. Australia joined the war criminal US- and UK-led invasion of newly Communist Russia in 1919 that kicked off a century of deadly Western hostility towards Russia (except for 1941-1945) that involved nuclear-armed protagonists from about 1950 and continues today. US lackey; nuclear terrorism-complicit Australia still loyally backs American Russophobia. The Joint US-Australia electronic spying base at Pine Gap in Central Australia commenced operations in 1970 and is a crucial element in US nuclear terrorism that threatens Australia and Humanity with extinction (as well as in targeting illegal and war criminal US drone strikes in a swathe of countries including Libya, starving Somalia, starving Yemen, Syria, Iraq, Afghanistan and Pakistan).

 7. US corporations and the rise of German Nazism. Serial invader and serial war criminal Republican US President George W. Bush’s grandfather, the late US senator Prescott Bush, was closely linked as a company director and shareholder of US companies backing the rise of Nazism in Germany. The genesis of WW2 is commonly associated with the punitive, Australia- and US-backed Treaty of Versailles. 27,000 Australians were killed in WW2. In total about 100 million people died in WW2 including 30 million Slavs, Jews and Gypsies (Roma) in the European Holocaust, 35 million Chinese deaths in the “forgotten” WW2 Chinese Holocaust under the Japanese in 1937-1945, 6-7 million Indian deaths in the Australia-complicit and British-imposed but “forgotten” WW2 Bengali Holocaust, and millions of Western and Axis military and civilian deaths.

 8. US, UK, Australia, Japan and US entry into WW2. The conclusion of UK writer J. Rusbridger and top Australian Intelligence figure Eric Nave is that denial of British naval intelligence information from the Americans allowed the Pearl Harbor attack to happen, turned a potential Japanese disaster into an American one and was “no accident but the deliberate policy of Churchill himself to achieve his aim of dragging America into the war.” However it was clear that the Americans had been squeezing Japan and, as revealed by decades of appalling post-WW2 bloodshed, the US had plans to dominate East Asia and South East Asia. Whether Roosevelt was forewarned about Pearl Harbor attack remains controversial with Japanese scholars adamant that he knew and Americans divided on the issue. A recently released secret memo makes it clear that the White House had been warned of a possible Japanese attack on Hawaii. Thus WashingtonsBlog (2012): “We probably knew about the coming Pearl Harbor attack, but let it happen to justify America’s entry into World War II. The White House apparently had – a year before Pearl Harbor – launched an 8-point plan to provoke Japan into war against the U.S. (including, for example, an oil embargo). The rationale for this provocation is that the U.S. wanted to aid its allies in fighting the Nazis and other axis powers, and decided that an attack by Japan would be the most advantageous justification for the U.S. to enter WWII. Moreover, Honolulu newspapers warned of a possible attack by the Japanese on Pearl Harbor”.

US entry into WW2 was the game-changer and in the war-time competition between saturation-bombed Axis war industry and bombing-free American war industry, the latter won. After the Pearl Harbor attack and the subsequent Japanese advance in South East Asia, Australian wartime Labor PM John Curtin defied the UK and brought Australian troops home to defend Australia. Curtin described the fall of Singapore as “Australia's Dunkirk” and suggested it would be followed by the “battle for Australia”. Curtin’s perception has been the official and overwhelming Mainstream Australian narrative ever since. However Roger Pulvers (Australian playwright, award winning translator and journalist, especially in Japanese newspapers) discounts this core Australian and Anglo-American narrative: “Did, in fact, the Americans save Australia from the Japanese, thus earning our undying, obsequious and largely unrequited loyalty? The answer is “No, they didn't.” Despite the early bombings in our far north and submarine attacks in Sydney Harbour, the plan to neutralise and occupy Australia was never taken seriously by the Japanese high command. Such a plan did exist, but it was not considered a viable strategic option and was abandoned early on in the war”.

In addition to the defeat of genocidal Nazism, a gigantic humane benefit of the US victory over Japan was the cessation of the 1937-1945 Chinese Holocausts in which 35 million Chinese perished under the Japanese. However an horrendous consequence of the US war against Japan was the 1942-1945 Bengali Holocaust (WW2 Bengal Famine, WW2 Bengali Holocaust, WW2 Indian Holocaust) in which the British with Australian complicity deliberately starved 6-7 million Indians to death in Bengal and in the adjoining Indian states of Bihar, Assam and Orissa. Australia was complicit in this atrocity by withholding food from India from its huge wartime grain stores. Australia’s reputation was not affected by its complicity in one of the worst atrocities in human history because the 1942-1945 Bengali Holocausts is a “forgotten” holocaust that has been almost completely removed from Anglo historiography and from general public perception through the racist mendacity of successive generations of Mainstream journalist, editor, politician, commentarial and academic presstitutes.

 9. US conventional and nuclear bombing mass murder of civilians in WW2. Another “forgotten” but deadly episode of WW2 was the argument in the “corridors of power” about whether the British should use air power to protect Atlantic shipping or to bomb German and Axis cities. In the event Churchill (who had opposed pre-war development of radar) listened to Professor Frederick Lindeman (Lord Cherwell), who favoured saturation bombing of German cities, instead of opposing scientists Sir Henry Tizard and Professor Patrick Blackett (Physics Nobel Laureate in 1948) who estimated that many bombs would effectively land on the same spot. C.P. Snow in “Science and Government” (1961) quotes Blackett’s assertion that with a more intelligent use of air power for military targets in Germany, in other war zones and in the Battle of the Atlantic, the war would have ended a half a year or a year earlier. This mistaken policy resulted in the deaths of 160,000 Allied airmen (including many Australians) and 600,000 German civilians. Massive shipping losses in the Atlantic resulted in Churchill slashing Allied shipping in the Indian Ocean, with this impacting grain imports into India, the price of grain and thence the Australia-complicit, British-imposed WW2 Bengali Holocaust. Lindeman also opposed food relief for starving India. The WW2 allied air war against German and Japanese civilians was a massive war crime involving the “fire storm” incineration of hundreds of thousands of civilians in cities like Hamburg, Dresden and Tokyo and culminated in the utterly avoidable nuclear incineration of Hiroshima and Nagasaki. Indeed Allied bombing of French cities in WW2 killed 50,000-60,000 French, a death toll similar to that suffered by the British from German bombing (67,000). The bombing of Dresden was evidently a “demonstration” of conventional Western air power to the Soviet Union, and the nuclear destruction of Hiroshima and Nagasaki was similarly a “demonstration” to the Soviet Union of US nuclear capability.

 10. US and UK nuclear terrorism and Australia. Australian scientists were involved in the Anglo-American development of the atomic bomb during WW2. Australia thence played a key role in development of the British nuclear terrorism strategy through hosting the testing of British nuclear weapons on Australian territory at the Montebello Islands (Western Australia) and at Emu Field and Maralinga (South Australia) in the periods 1952-1957 under the Robert Menzies Coalition Government. These nuclear tests involved exposing British and Australian servicemen as guinea pigs (the British may well have also been involved in chemical warfare research in Australia that also involved Australian servicemen as human guinea pigs), and wanton dispersal of dangerous radioactive material. The British also tested rocket delivery systems, notable the de Havilland Propellers Blue Streak, a British medium-range ballistic missile (MRBM), at Woomera in South Australia. Australia now plays a key role in US nuclear terrorism (as well as with illegal and war criminal US drone strikes in 7 countries from Libya to Pakistan inclusively) via the joint US-Australia electronic spying facility at Pine Gap in Central Australia that was functional by 1970. A US lackey Australia is also involved otherwise in US nuclear terrorism e.g. by hosting nuclear-armed US warships, development of hypersonic delivery systems (e.g. missiles travelling at an unstoppable 8 times the speed of sound), development of laser-based uranium enrichment that carries serious proliferation risks, diplomatically as a US lackey (e.g. Australia is second only to Trump America as a supporter of nuclear terrorist Apartheid Israel), and covertly as a dirty tricks adjunct to US Intelligence (e.g. in Indonesia, Fiji, Chile, Timor L’Este, Apartheid Israel, Australia itself, and goodness knows where else – indeed an Australian journalist revealing such atrocities would face 5-10 years in prison under US-inspired Australian laws). Australia is heavily involved in military research with nuclear terrorist Apartheid Israel that represents a huge threat to Australians. Appallingly, US lackey Australia opposes nuclear disarmament - while decent people regard incest, paedophilia and bestiality with utter disgust, words fail in attempting to describe the utter moral depravity of prospective nuclear mass murder of billions of people espoused by America and its depraved lackey Australia.

 11. US, Australia and Korean Genocide. The Korean War (1950-1953) commenced with the US permitting Korean invasion of Korea (itself). According to anti-racist Jewish American journalist I.F. Stone’s “The Hidden History of the Korean War”, the Americans permitted the North Korean advance to justify massive US intervention that had a likely purpose in enabling asserted “justification” for the nuclear destruction of China. America’s Chinese nationalist friends had advance warning of the commencement of the Korean War and profited from this insider knowledge by highly profitable speculation on Manchurian soybean futures on the Chicago Stock Exchange. Strategic bombing of North Korea killed an estimated 28% of the North Korean population and not one building was left standing. 4.2 million Koreans died from violence, this carnage including 3.2 million civilians and 1.2 million military with a further 1 million Koreans dying avoidably from imposed deprivation – a 5.2 million victim Korean Holocaust and Korean Genocide commensurate with the WW2 Jewish Holocaust (5-6 million Jews killed by violence or imposed deprivation). Over 17,000 Australians served in the Korean War, of whom 340 were killed, over 1,216 were wounded and 29 become prisoners of war (POWs). US lackey Australia was complicit in this Korean Holocaust but this atrocity could have been even worse if mass murderer President Harry Truman had not removed General MacArthur who wanted to expand the war to include China, with both of these psychopaths considering use of nuclear weapons.

 12. The Cold War and US subversion of Australia and the world. US lackey Australia’s servile support for America meant that it slavishly supported the US in the post-WW2 Cold War, with that craven support continuing up to the present day New Cold War against Russia. Of course while the Cold War was “cold” for Australia, it was “hot” and deadly for a swathe of US-violated and US-devastated countries in Latin America, Africa and Asia. The US has invaded 72 countries (52 since WW2) as compared to the British 193, Australia 85, France 80, Apartheid Israel 12, China 2 and North Korea arguably none. The US presently has military bases in 172 countries, and remorselessly subverts and perverts all countries in the world, including Australia. The US “only” invaded 52 countries after WW2 but had a deadly impact on many more through exercise of hegemony via Indigenous agents. Thus in Latin America the US only invaded Cuba, Panama, Granada, Haiti and the Dominican Republic in the post-WW2 era but exercised violent subversion throughout Latin America via US-backed coups, civil wars, terrorists and death squads.

 A fundamental measure of the human impact of social policies (from domestic policies to international interventions) is avoidable mortality (avoidable death, excess mortality, excess death, untimely death, premature death, deaths that should not have happened) that is the difference between the observed deaths in a country and the deaths expected for a peaceful, decently governed country with the same population and demographics (age distribution). Thus annual avoidable mortality as a percentage of population is to about 0.0% pay for Western countries, Apartheid Israel, Cuba, China, Japan, South Korea and Singapore but is 1.0% pay for impoverished non-Arab Africa and 0.4% for impoverished South Asia. Whether a child is killed by bombs or bullets or dies avoidably from violently-imposed deprivation, the death is just as real, just as final and just as wrong. Further, the importance of key parameters such as avoidable mortality and its synonyms is inversely related to their recognition by US, Australian and indeed Western Mainstream journalist, editor, politician, commentarial and academic presstitutes. It can be readily estimated from UN Population Division data that 16 million people die avoidably from deprivation each year on Spaceship Earth with the US and its rich cronies like Australia in charge of the flight deck and that 1,500 million people have died thus since 1950. 1950-2005 avoidable deaths from imposed deprivation in countries occupied by foreigners in the post-WW2 era total 82 million for those occupied by the US, as compared to 727 million (for those occupied by the UK) and 142 million (for those occupied by France). As a rich US lackey, Australia has been complicit in this ongoing Global Avoidable Mortality Holocaust.

American Cold War attitudes had a huge impact on Australian public life. The racist, imperialist, warmongering, neo-fascist Coalition PM Robert “Pig Iron Bob” Menzies ruled Australia from 1950-1966. Notoriously British imperialist Menzies had not volunteered for service in WW1, he had praised Nazi Germany in the 1930s and he had allowed pig iron exports to Japan as it was raping China in the late 1930s. Menzies’ attempt to ban the Communists in Australia and imprison them on remote Flinders Island was defeated in a referendum. Nevertheless he lined up with the right-wing Catholic Church and the fervent Catholic anti-Communist (and traitorous spy for America) Bob Santamaria to keep the Labor Party out of power for 2 decades with an endless scare campaign of “Reds under the bed”, “Red Menace”, “Fellow Travellers”, “Faceless Men”, “Yellow Peril” and the Asia Communist “Domino Effect” (first Korea, then China, Vietnam, Malaysia, Indonesia and finally Australia). Spurred on by the lurid Petrov Affair and the attempted kidnapping of Mrs. Petrov by Soviet officials, Australia had anti-communist hysteria akin to the xenophobia today – social contact with a Red was evidence for asserted Communist treason. Many Australians espousing progressive causes were spied on and had their lives or reputations blighted in a McCarthyist campaign by US lackey Australian Intelligence that notoriously allowed Nazi war criminals into Australia and collaborated with Croatian Nazi Ustase terrorists in Australia. The conservative-driven Red Menace hysteria was dulled by the election in 1972 of the reformist Labor Government under PM Gough Whitlam. However this remarkable government was removed by a US CIA-backed Coup in 1975 and the Labor Party immediately adopted a cowardly and pragmatic approach of “All the way with the USA” that is still entrenched today. Australia was complicit in all post-1950 US Asian wars, atrocities in which 40 million Asians died from violence or war-imposed deprivation.

 13. US, Australia and state terrorism in Indonesia in 1965-1998. The US backed the 1966 military coup in Indonesia in which 0.5- 3 million Indonesian teachers, intellectuals, progressives and Chinese were butchered and a similar number highly abusively imprisoned. The violent and immensely corrupt military rule by Dictator Suharto lasted from 1968 until 1998. Australia turned a blind eye to the excesses of this brutal military dictatorship and indeed the Indonesian island of Bali became a very popular holiday destination for Australians. The US and US lackey Australian media refer to this atrocity as the “anti-communist coup”. An estimated 33 million Indonesians died avoidably from deprivation under the corrupt Suharto regime that squirreled away $30 billion for the Suharto family alone. One former Australian PM was noted for his close relations with Dictator Suharto.

 14. US, Australia and the Indo-China Genocide. In 1965 war monger, racist, Anglo imperialist and US lackey PM Robert Menzies massively involved Australia in the American Indo-China Genocide (although some Australian military advisers had been involved since 1962). A ballot-based conscription for the war was very unpopular and the Labor Party opposed the war. The progressive Whitlam Labor Government (1972-1975) stopped Australian involvement in the Vietnam War before it was removed in a US CIA-backed Coup in 1975. 60,000 Australians served in Vietnam, 521 died and over 3,000 were wounded. The Vietnam Genocide was associated with 15.3 million dead from violence, 3.4 million, and war-imposed deprivation, 11.9 million. The Lao Genocide was associated with 1.2 million dead from violence, 0.1 million, and war-imposed deprivation, 1.1 million. The Cambodian Genocide was associated with 6.0 million dead from violence, 2.1 million, and war-imposed deprivation, 3.9 million. The overall Indo-Chinese Genocide was associated with 22.5 million dead from violence, 5.6 million, and war-imposed deprivation, 16.9 million – carnage commensurate with WW2 Nazi atrocities in the Soviet Union and an utterly appalling atrocity in which US lackey Australia is complicit. The Americans variously regard Vietnam, Iraq etc. as “mistakes” but then move on seamlessly to the next atrocity.

 15. US, Australia and the 1973 Chile Coup. Wikipedia reports: “An Australian Secret Intelligence Service (ASIS) station was established in Chile out of the Australian embassy in July 1971 at the request of the CIA and authorised by then Liberal Party Foreign Minister William McMahon. Newly-elected Labor Prime Minister Gough Whitlam was informed of the operation in February 1973 and signed a document ordering the closure of the operation several weeks later. It appears, however, the last ASIS agent did not leave Chile until October 1973, one month after the CIA-backed coup d'état had brought down the Allende Government. There were also two officers of Australian Security Intelligence Organisation (ASIO), Australia's internal security service, who were based in Santiago working as migration officers during this period. The failure of timely closure of Australia's covert operations was one of the reasons for the sacking of the Director of ASIS on 21 October 1975. This took effect on 7 November, just four days before Prime Minister's Whitlam's own dismissal in the 1975 Australian constitutional crisis with allegations of CIA political interference”.

 16. US, Australia, Indonesia and the East Timorese Genocide. The 1975 invasion of East Timor by Indonesia had the tacit support of both the US (via President Ford and serial war criminal Henry Kissinger) and of Australia (that was then ruled by the Whitlam Labor Government). Shamefully, Australia was the only country to recognize the Indonesian annexation of East Timor. Under the Indonesian military occupation about 200,000 East Timorese died out of a population of 600,000 – an East Timorese Holocaust and an East Timorese Genocide. Five Australian journalists (“the Balibo Five”) were murdered by the invading Indonesian military.

 17. Nugan Hand bank scandal 1973-1980. The US Central Intelligence Agency (CIA) has a long record of involvement in dirty tricks world-wide and of drug smuggling (notably in Turkey, Afghanistan, South East Asia and Latin America). The Nugan Hand Bank was an Australian merchant bank that collapsed in 1980 after the suicide (or possible murder) of one of its founders, Australian lawyer Francis John Nugan , this resulting in a major scandal with allegations that the bank had been involved in CIA-linked illegal activities, including drug smuggling and weapons deals.

18. The US CIA-backed Coup that removed the Whitlam Labor Government on Remembrance Day, 1975. The progressive and reformist Labor Government of PM Gough Whitlam was elected in 1972, was re-elected in 1974 and was finally removed in a US CIA-backed Coup on 11 November 1975 (Remembrance Day). A US lackey Australia then elected the conservative; US lackey Coalition Australian Coup beneficiaries. Outstanding expatriate Australian journalist John Pilger on the US-UK, CIA-MI6 Coup: “Whitlam demanded to know if and why the CIA was running a spy base at Pine Gap near Alice Springs, a giant vacuum cleaner which, as Edward Snowden revealed recently, allows the US to spy on everyone. “Try to screw us or bounce us,” the prime minister warned the US ambassador, “[and Pine Gap] will become a matter of contention”. Victor Marchetti, the CIA officer who had helped set up Pine Gap, later told me, “This threat to close Pine Gap caused apoplexy in the White House … a kind of Chile [coup] was set in motion.” Pine Gap’s top-secret messages were decoded by a CIA contractor, TRW. One of the decoders was Christopher Boyce, a young man troubled by the “deception and betrayal of an ally”. Boyce revealed that the CIA had infiltrated the Australian political and trade union elite and referred to the [Coup effecting] governor-general of Australia, Sir John Kerr, as “our man Kerr”. Kerr was not only the Queen’s man, he had longstanding ties to Anglo-American intelligence… US diplomatic cables published last year by WikiLeaks disclose the names of leading figures in both main parties, including a future prime minister and foreign minister, as Washington’s informants during the Whitlam years”. Whitlam was decent , patriotic and actually quite conservative but before he was removed he abolished the White Australia Policy, racial discrimination, and university fees, brought Australian soldiers back from Vietnam, demanded transparency over Pine Gap, commenced universal health care, tried to “buy back the farm” from foreigners, and initiated actual Aboriginal land rights for the Gurindji ( 1 of about 150 surviving but dispossessed Indigenous tribes). After nearly 43 years the British still refuse to release key correspondence between the Australian Governor-General Kerr and the Queen relating to the Anglo-American Coup against the democratically-elected Whitlam Government.

 19. Australia-complicit US MX Missile tests 1985. The Australia-complicit US MX Missile test scandal has been summarized by Damien Murphy writing in the Sydney Morning Herald: “The Hawke [Labor] government was ready to keep the public from knowing it supported an American MX ballistic missile test program that involved rockets landing in the Tasman Sea off Tasmania. Bob Hawke's popularity rating as prime minister had been holding strong for two years but the MX missile crisis became his first setback when the American plan became public [in 1985]… at an extraordinary press conference in Brussels, Mr. Hawke [PM] backed away from a firm commitment for Australia to help the US. US secretary of state George Shultz knew which way the wind was blowing and, after meeting Mr. Hawke two days later, graciously announced the US would not use Australian facilities for MX missile tests”.

20. US and Australian involvement in the 1987 Fiji coup. In 1987 Fijians elected a multiracial, Indian and Indigenous Fijian Government under Fijian Dr. Timoci Bavadra. This government faced considerable opposition from Fijian nationalists but US opposition was excited by the Fiji Government’s wish for a nuclear weapons-free Pacific . The Americans were upset that their nuclear weapons-carrying warships would not be able to dock in Fiji. US-linked Colonel Sitiveni Rabuka (third in command of the Fiji armed forces) led a military Coup against the democratically-elected Fiji Government while the Commander-in-Chief of the Fiji Army, Ratu Ipeli Nailatikau, was visiting Australia, totally unaware of the plot and presumably having been invited by a possibly complicit, US lackey Australian government to get him out of the way.

 21. Iraq sanctions and Australian complicity in American passive mass murder of Iraqi children. Australia joined serial invader US in responding to the US-green-lighted Iraqi invasion of Kuwait with violence (0.2 million Iraqis were killed in the Gulf War “turkey-shoot”) and deadly Sanctions that killed 1.5 million Iraqis (half of them children) through imposed deprivation coupled with Anglo-American and Israeli bombing that destroyed vital civil infrastructure. Dennis Halliday (Humanitarian Coordinator in Iraq from September 1, 1997 until 1998) resigned after 34 years with the UN, including being UN assistant secretary-general, over the Sanctions imposed on Iraq, characterizing them as “genocide”. On May 12, 1996, Madeleine Albright (US Ambassador to the UN and later US Secretary of State) defended UN sanctions against Iraq on a US TV “60 Minutes” segment in which anti-racist Jewish American journalist Lesley Stahl asked her "We have heard that half a million children have died. I mean, that's more children than died in Hiroshima. And, you know, is the price worth it?" and to which Albright replied "we think the price is worth it.” UK-US-subverted Australia played a dirty double role in the deadly Iraqi Sanctions – thus a document by me and tabled in the Australian Senate by Greens Senator Rachel Siewert estimated that over 20,000 Iraqi children died as a result of Australian Wheat Board (AWB) bribes that subverted the UN oil-for-food Iraq sanctions regime. UK and US Intelligence services had to have known from the very start about the Australian Wheat Board (AWB) "Wheat for Weapons" kickback scam that diverted $250 million from the UN Oil-for-Food Program and funded the Saddam Hussein regime. Indeed by 2000 the Iraqi kickbacks arrangements were well known to everyone with an interest in trading with Iraq and the Canadians and Americans (competitors with Australia in the lucrative Iraq wheat trade) were officially complaining. An Australian Royal Commission into the scandal declined my evidence in relation to this atrocity. Australia was complicit in the American passive mass murder of 1.7 million Iraqis (half of them children) under Sanctions but worse was to come after 9-11 in 2001 with US Alliance invasion and devastation of Iraq, Afghanistan and other Muslim countries in an ongoing War on Muslims.

22. The US Government’s 9-11 false flag operation. Like other Western countries, US lackey Australia has resolutely gone along with the “lying Bush official version of 9-11” notwithstanding the shocking realities that the Bush Administration told 935 lies about Iraq between 9-11 (2001) and the invasion of Iraq (March 2003) and that numerous science, engineering, architecture, aviation, military and intelligence experts have concluded that the US Government was responsible for 9-11, with some asserting Israeli involvement. The Australian ABC (Australia’s equivalent of the lying UK BBC), like other Western Mainstream media including the UK BBC, has gone along with the “official version” offered by the pathologically mendacious Americans. However the UK BBC slipped up badly when its New York reporter on 9-11 with WTC7 (World Trade Center Building 7) standing intact behind her reported the collapse of WTC7 about 15 minutes before it actually happened. However the mendacious UK and BBC culture was quickly able to smooth over this extraordinary slippage. Indeed the BBC subsequently censored out its premature video “on copyright grounds”. The UK BBC and its equally degenerate and mendacious offspring, the Australian ABC, have an appalling record of fake news through lying by omission.

However the ABC also slipped up badly by failing to censor the only 2 detailed dissenting opinions about 9-11 shown up by a Search of the ABC for the term “WTC7” (the third World Trade Center building to collapse on 9-11). Thus the video of the detailed, BBC-derived ABC TV Four Corners report “9/11: the third tower” is no longer available from either the BBC or the ABC. However Hereward Fenton’s analysis on ABC News survives and concludes: “Films such as Loose Change and 9/11 Mysteries have been viewed by millions on the internet, and opinion polls have consistently shown that a large proportion of the public does not accept the official narrative of 9/11. Many believe there has been a major cover-up, while others believe that September 11 was an "inside job". As an Australian, I believe there is an urgent need for a new investigation for several reasons. First, there is the war in Afghanistan, which has already claimed thousands of lives, and appears to have no end in sight. If the 9/11 official narrative proves to be false, then the attack on Afghanistan may be a war crime. Second, there is the continued erosion of civil liberties in the form of anti-terror legislation, and increases in police powers of surveillance and detention, which relies largely on 9/11 as the primary justification. Finally, there are core values of truth, decency and justice at stake, which I wish to uphold and which I ask all Australians to join me in upholding as I say to our elected leaders, with all due respect, we need a new investigation”. As in the case of the non-existent Iraqi Weapons of Mass destruction (WMD), in relation to its espousal of the “lying Bush official version of 9-11” US-beholden Australian Intelligence is either extraordinarily, dangerously and thoroughly incompetent or is egregiously and resolutely lying in the interests of a foreign power – “foreign influence “ indeed.

23. US lackey Australia’s complicity in America’s Iraqi Genocide. The UN Charter determines that the only grounds for your country invading another country are (1) if it has invaded your country, (2) if its government has invited your country’s intervention, and (3) if there is UN sanction (however as demonstrated by the Iraq Sanctions carnage, this does not prevent commission of genocidal war crimes). These 3 criteria were not satisfied in the illegal, war criminal and genocidal US Alliance invasion of Iraq. False UK and US intelligence claims of Iraqi possession of Weapons of Mass Destruction (WMD) were discounted by expert UN and intelligence officials before the illegal invasion of Iraq and were quickly shown to be utterly false by post-invasion inspections on the ground. UK lackey and US lackey Australia immediately got in line with the Anglo-American lie, notwithstanding that an Australian Intelligence expert, Lieutenant Colonel Andrew Wilkie (presently an Independent MP for the Denison electorate in Tasmania in the Australian Federal Parliament), had resigned his intelligence job over the issue before the invasion, telling the ABC: “I think that invading Iraq at this time would be wrong. For a start, Iraq does not pose a security threat to any other country at this point in time. Its military is very weak, it's a fraction of the size of the military at the time of the invasion of Kuwait. Its weapons of mass destruction program is very disjointed and contained by the regime that's been in place since the last Gulf War. And there is no hard intelligence linking the Iraqi regime to al-Qaeda in any substantial or worrisome way”. The illegal and war criminal invasion and occupation of Iraq by the UK, US and US lackey Australia under Coalition PM John Howard was associated with 2.7 million Iraqi deaths from violence (1.5 million) and imposed deprivation (1.2 million), 5-6 million refugees and 0.8 million under-5 infant deaths, 90% avoidable.

This carnage amounts to an Iraqi Holocaust (a huge number of deaths) and an Iraq Genocide, with genocide as defined by Article 2 of the UN Genocide Convention thus: “In the present Convention, genocide means any of the following acts committed with intent to destroy, in whole or in part, a national, ethnic, racial or religious group, as such: a) Killing members of the group; b) Causing serious bodily or mental harm to members of the group; c) Deliberately inflicting on the group conditions of life calculated to bring about its physical destruction in whole or in part; d) Imposing measures intended to prevent births within the group; e) Forcibly transferring children of the group to another group”. The carnage of the Iraqi Holocaust is also evidence of gross violation by the US Coalition including the UK and US-UK lackey Australia of Articles 55 and 56 Geneva Convention Relative to the Protection of Civilian Persons in Time of War that declare unequivocally that an Occupier must provide its Conquered Subjects with life-sustaining food and medical requisites “to the fullest extent of the means available to it”.

Outstanding anti-racist Jewish British playwright Harold Pinter in his 2005 Literature Nobel Prize Acceptance Speech stated: “We have brought torture, cluster bombs, depleted uranium, innumerable acts of random murder, misery, degradation and death to the Iraqi people and call it 'bringing freedom and democracy to the Middle East'. How many people do you have to kill before you qualify to be described as a mass murderer and a war criminal? One hundred thousand? More than enough, I would have thought. Therefore it is just that Bush and Blair be arraigned before the International Criminal Court of Justice”. 2.7 million? More than enough, I would have thought. Yet George Bush, Tony Blair, John Howard and their associates roam free. Indeed Howard was controversially awarded an honorary doctorate from the University of Sydney, notwithstanding the opinion of John Valder (former National President of John Howard’s own Liberal Party) that: “Bush, Blair, and Howard, as leaders of the three members of the coalition of the willing, inflicted enormous suffering on the people of Iraq. And, as such, they are criminals…I believe the only deterrent to a repetition of the Iraq situation is punishment in some form as war criminals”. In contrast, the Australian ABC reported on the occasion of the US withdrawal in 2011: “The withdrawal ends a war that left tens of thousands of Iraqis and nearly 4,500 American soldiers dead, many more wounded and 1.75 million Iraqis displaced, after the 2003 US-led invasion unleashed brutal sectarian fighting” – this being a 100-fold under-estimate of Iraqi deaths that in reality are of the same order of magnitude as those of the WW2 Jewish Holocaust (5-6 million Jews killed by violence or deprivation). US lackey Australia’s involvement in the US-imposed Iraqi Holocaust and Iraqi Genocide has utterly soiled Australia.

24. US lackey Australian complicity in America’s Afghan Holocaust and Afghan Genocide. According to the “lying Bush official version of 9-11”, zero (0) Afghans were among the 19 alleged perpetrators involved in the 9-11 atrocity. Further, the ruling Afghan Taliban expressed willingness to hand over the US-alleged 9-11 mastermind, Osama bin Laden, to a Third Party government. Notwithstanding these realities, the US embarked on a war criminal invasion of Afghanistan in 2001. On the basis of Iraq War comparisons, the Afghan War has been associated (as of 2014) with post-invasion violent deaths totalling 1.7 million (this based on assuming expert US-Australian advice that the level of violence has been 4 times lower in the Afghan War than in the Iraq War) and (from UN Population Division data) that in Occupied Afghanistan post-invasion non-violent avoidable deaths from deprivation totalled 5.5 million. Afghan under-5 infant deaths have totalled about 3 million and Afghan refugees total about 3 million. According to the UN Charter, the only grounds for invading another country are (1) if it has invaded your country, (2) if its government has invited your intervention, and (3) if there is UN sanction (however as demonstrated by the Iraq Sanctions carnage, this does not prevent commission of genocidal war crimes). These 3 criteria were not satisfied in the illegal, war criminal and genocidal, US Alliance invasion and occupation of Afghanistan. The carnage of the 16.75 year occupation of Afghan amounts to an Afghan Holocaust (7.2 million violent deaths or avoidable deaths from imposed deprivation) that is commensurate in death toll with the WW2 Jewish Holocaust (5-6 million deaths from violence or imposed deprivation) and an Afghan Genocide as defined by the UN Genocide Convention. Of course a US-imposed war has been actually going on in Afghanistan since 1978 when the US engineered the overthrow of a secular Afghan regime that in turn led to Russian invasion (1979-1989 Afghan excess mortality from deprivation totalled 2.9 million).

The 2015 testimony of former US-installed Afghan President Hamid Karzai departs radically from the UK, US and Australia, NATO and “lying Bush official version” narrative: “[Al-Qaeda] is for me a myth […] for us, they don’t exist. I don't know if al-Qaeda existed and I don't know if they exist. I have not seen them and I've not had any report about them, any report that would indicate that al-Qaeda is operating in Afghanistan… [re the US version of 9-11] That is what I have heard from our Western friends. That's what the Western media says. There is no doubt that an operation, a terrorist operation was conducted in New York and in Washington. I neither believe nor disbelieve something that I don't know about. I can tell you that Afghanistan was as much a victim of terrorism as was America, as were the people who were killed in the September 11th terrorist attacks”.

The most fundamental human right is the right to life. While legitimately criticized for the one party state, the death penalty, censorship, urban air pollution and harsh treatment of dissidents, China has been hugely successful in radically reducing infant mortality and maternal mortality in Tibet and in China as a whole. In stark contrast, the war criminal US Alliance occupation of neighbouring Afghanistan continues to be associated with an under-1 infant mortality and maternal mortality incidence that is 7 times higher and 4-12 times higher, respectively, than that in Tibet. Infant mortality (under-1 infant deaths per 1,000 live births) is 12 (China), 16 ( Tibet ), 6 ( USA ) and 111 (US Alliance-occupied Afghanistan ). The Maternal Mortality Ratio (MMR) (maternal deaths per 100,000 live births) is 20- 27 (China ), 100 ( Tibet ), 14 ( USA ), 9 (UK), 6 (Australia) and 400-1,200 (US Alliance-occupied Afghanistan ).This constitutes evidence of horrendous US Alliance war crimes in Occupied Afghanistan in gross violation of the Geneva Convention relative to the Protection of Civilian Persons in Time of War and thence of the UN Genocide Convention. The carnage in the Afghan Holocaust (7.2 million violent deaths or avoidable deaths from imposed deprivation) is of the same order of magnitude as those of the WW2 Jewish Holocaust (5-6 million Jews killed by violence or deprivation). US lackey Australia’s involvement in the US-imposed Afghan Holocaust and Afghan Genocide has utterly soiled Australia.

The Australian Government is presently investigating allegations of Australian war crimes in Afghanistan involving “unsanctioned and illegal application of violence” and showing “disregard for human life and dignity” during operations in Afghanistan. This controversy has deepened with the image of a Nazi flag flying on an Australian military vehicle in Occupied Afghanistan. However what is utterly missing from Mainstream public discussion is the genocidal reality that in Occupied Afghanistan post-invasion non-violent avoidable deaths from deprivation have totalled 5.5 million and Afghan under-5 infant deaths have totalled about 3 million. Yet the annual per capita medical expenditure (2015) is $60 (Occupied Afghanistan) as compared to $4,493 (Occupier Australia), $4,613 (Occupier Canada), $4,125 (Occupier UK) and $9,507 (Occupier America) – evidence of immense war crimes by these war criminal Western Occupier nation governments in gross violation of Articles 55 and 56 of the Geneva Convention relative to the Protection of Civilian Persons in Time of War that demand that an Occupier must provide life-sustaining food and medical requisites to their Conquered Subjects “to the fullest extent of the means available to it”. Ditto in US Alliance-devastated Iraq where in 2015 (4 years after the war criminal Americans left) the annual per capita medical expenditure was a mere $145, yet annual avoidable deaths from deprivation in Occupied Iraq totalled 1.2 million/8 years = 150,000 annually as compared to zero (0) in the rich Occupier countries the US, UK and US lackey Australia.

Australians honor all those who risk their lives in serving their country. Clearly any war-time actions involving “unsanctioned and illegal application of violence” and showing “disregard for human life and dignity” should be investigated and those responsible appropriately counselled and sanctioned. However Australians must not confine such moral investigation and sanction to Australian soldiers operating in the heat of battle. Australians, British and Americans must wake up and utterly condemn the immoral and war criminal politicians who have committed their countries to immoral and illegal wars and grossly violate the Geneva Convention and the UN Genocide Convention. Unfortunately Mainstream journalist, politician and commentariat presstitutes ensure that the politicians get away with their criminal warmongering, jingoistic political exploitation of their servicemen both living and dead, and deadly betrayal of their traumatized veterans of whom about 80 and 8,000 suicides annually in Australia and the USA, respectively.

 25. Australian complicity in the US-driven global illicit drug death epidemic. Utterly ignored by Neocon American and Zionist Imperialist (NAZI)-perverted and subverted Western Mainstream media, including Australian Mainstream media, are the 1.2 million people who have died world-wide since 9-11 due to US Alliance restoration of the Taliban-destroyed Afghan opium industry from 6% of world market share in 2001 to 93% in 2007, the breakdown (as of 2015) including 280,000 Americans, 256,000 Indonesians, 68,000 Iranians, 25,000 British, 14,000 Canadians, 10,000 Germans, and 5,000 Australians. Australian Labor PM Kevin Rudd called for destruction of Afghan opium crops (unlike insurgents, crops cannot run away and hide) but his request was firmly rejected by the drug-pushing Americans. Conservative and diplomatic PM Kevin Rudd offended the Americans (over Afghan opiates), the mining corporations (over his proposed Mining Tax) and the traitorous Zionists (by objecting to the Apartheid Israel forging Australian passports for terrorism purposes and violently kidnapping Australians in international waters) and was removed in a US-approved, mining corporation-backed and pro-Zionist-led Coup in 2010.

 26. US lackey Australia and the Zionist-promoted US War on Muslims. The penultimate in racism is invasion of another country (the ultimate in racism is genocidal invasion of another country). US lackey Australia is an enthusiastic partner in the ongoing US War on Muslims (aka the US War on Terror) that has been associated with 32 million Muslim deaths from violence (5 million) or from imposed deprivation (27 million) in 20 countries invaded by the US Alliance since the US Government’s 9-11 false atrocity. The carnage of this ongoing, Zionist-backed, Australia-complicit and US-effected Muslim Holocaust and Muslim Genocide atrocity is commensurate with the 40 million deaths in the WW2 European Holocaust in which the Nazi Germans killed 30 million Slav, Jewish and Gypsy subjects. Australia has been complicit in all post-1950 US Asian wars, atrocities associated with 40 million Asian deaths from violence or war-imposed deprivation. Australian forces have been directly involved in Iraq, Syria, Somalia and Afghanistan. The joint Australian-US electronic spying station at Pine Gap in Central Australia is intimately involved in US global nuclear terrorism and also targets illegal US drone strikes in Libya, starving Somalia, starving Yemen, Syria, Iraq, Afghanistan and Pakistan. Australia is involved in the US-backed Saudi Arabian and Gulf State Yemeni Genocide by providing arms and diplomatic support to the war criminal and genocidal Saudis and by targeting US drone strikes against the starving Yemenis.

 27. US intervention vetoed Labor leader Mark Latham in the 2004 Australian Federal elections. In the 2004 Australian Federal elections the right-wing Labor Opposition leader, Mark Latham, vowed to bring Australian soldiers back from Iraq “by Christmas”. Latham was then subject to direct public intervention by the US Ambassador Thomas Schieffer (“Schiefferbrains” in Mark Latham’s biography), lost the election and has been monstered by the media ever since.

 28. US, corporate and Zionist complicity in disposal of Australian PM Kevin Rudd in the 24 June 2010 Zionist-led Coup. Right-wing Labor leader Kevin Rudd was elected as PM of Australia in 2007 with a big majority in Parliament. While subsequently horribly maligned by his political enemies, Rudd was a very hard-working administrator, a diplomat concerned with foreign affairs, and an ideas man. Of special note, Rudd spoke Chinese, was very knowledgeable about China (now Australia’s biggest trading partner) and made the following pertinent and accurate comments about China that are at variance with the current, US-inspired Australian Mainstream China-bashing (2012) [my amplifying addenda in square brackets]: “Mine is not a starry-eyed optimism. I have lived in China, travelled in China and studied China in one capacity or another for most of my life. Like all civilisations, it reflects an accumulation of historical experiences, perceptions and achievements. But China’s history does provide us with a reasonable basis for optimism. The China that I have studied over the decades is one that has not been in the business of invading other countries for more than 2,000 years. Nor has China sought to establish colonies around the world, even though its navigational skills and naval capabilities during the Ming Dynasty were considerably more advanced than those of countries in the west. China’s modern political consciousness has been badly seared by what the Chinese routinely and legitimately describe as a century of foreign humiliation, from the [British] opium wars [together with the Tai Ping rebellion, up to 100 million dead] to the end of the Japanese occupation [35 million Chinese killed, 1937-1945]. China in effect remained internationally isolated for the first half of its communist history, and only in the past three decades has it begun to engage systematically the world once again. China today seeks respect in the eyes of the world for the contributions of its ancient civilisation and modern economy. These are all historical truths that we in the west can work with”.

 PM Kevin Rudd offended the Americans (by demanding destruction of the deadly Afghan opium industry that under US protection now has about 90% of world market share), the mining corporations (over his proposed Mining Tax) and the traitorous Zionists (by objecting the Apartheid Israel forging Australian passports for terrorism purposes and violently kidnapping Australians in international waters) - and was thence removed in a US-approved, mining corporation-backed and pro-Zionist-led Coup in 2010. The mining companies, including multinational mining corporations operating in the US, contributed $22 million to getting rid of PM Kevin Rudd and his Mining Tax (the Minerals Resource Rent Tax or MRRT) . The political destruction of Kevin Rudd was a powerful illustration of US-dominated Australia as a Kleptocracy, Plutocracy, Murdochracy, Lobbyocracy, Corporatocracy and Dollarocracy in which Big Money purchases people, politicians, policies, public perception of reality, votes, more political power and more private profit.

Kevin Rudd told former Australian Foreign Minister Bob Carr that 20% of his election funds came from the Jewish community but after Rudd gave a slap on the wrist to Apartheid Israel for kidnapping Australians and forging Australian passports, the Zionist Lobby was deeply upset. Peter Hartcher writing in the Sydney Morning Herald (22 June 2010): “When Kevin Rudd sat down to dinner in the Lodge with six leaders of the Jewish community this month, several remarked at the trouble he'd taken; the Prime Minister had ordered kosher food, flown from Melbourne, for the event. It was a nice touch, but not enough. Rudd convened the dinner as reconciliation with Australia's Jewry. He was the first prime minister to invite the Jewish leadership to address a crisis in relations since Malcolm Fraser after the outbreak of the first Lebanon war in 1982. But it was going to take a lot more than a kosher dinner to allay the anxiety, anger and frustration around the Lodge dining table… He promised new funding for the secure schools program, which provides security to Jewish schools, now the first $20 million was spent. The Jewish leaders left the Lodge shaken by the events of the last months but largely satisfied with Rudd's assurances and his promises. This is just as well, because the food was reportedly terrible. The crisis over, fund-raising events for Labor are expected to resume”. Rudd was evidently unsuccessful because he was dismissed in an overnight pro-Zionist-led Coup several days later on 24 June 2010. One of the Coup plotters was revealed by WikiLeaks to be a secret US source who revealed Labor Government discussions to the US Embassy [154].

29. Australian complicity in US drone strikes, extrajudicial killing and the Yemeni Genocide. The joint Australian-US electronic spying base at Pine Gap in Central Australia is intimately involved in US global nuclear terrorism and also targets illegal US drone strikes in Libya, starving Somalia, starving Yemen, Syria, Iraq, Afghanistan and Pakistan. Australia is involved in the vile Saudi Arabian and Gulf State Yemeni Genocide through arms supplies to the war criminal Saudis and by targeting US drone strikes against the starving Yemenis. Professor Richard Tanter (University of Melbourne) on secret document revelations: “Those documents provide authoritative confirmation that Pine Gap is involved, for example, in the geolocation of cell phones used by people throughout the world, from the Pacific to the edge of Africa. It shows us that Pine Gap knows the geolocations, it derives the phone numbers, it often derives the content of any communications, it provides the ability for the American military to identify and place in real time the location of targets of interest”. Deadly criminal violation of multiple countries is what drug cartels and the various other mafias do and is also what US lackey Australia does with the serial war criminal US via Pine Gap – foreign interference in Australia indeed violent foreign interference in other countries that utterly soils Australia.

30. US and Australian veteran deaths. We honor all those who risk their lives in serving their country. However we are morally obliged to condemn immoral and war criminal politicians who commit their countries to immoral and illegal wars. However US and US lackey Australian Mainstream journalist, politician and commentariat presstitutes ensure that the politicians get away with their criminal warmongering, jingoistic political exploitation of servicemen both living and dead, and deadly betrayal of their traumatized veterans of whom about 80 and 8,000 suicide annually in Australia and the USA, respectively (i.e. 1,340 and 134,000 suicides , respectively, since the US Government’s 9-11 false flag atrocity that killed 3,000). Words and flags are cheap. The most obvious ways of honouring all those who risk their lives in serving their country are through (a) provision of social support and expert medical services for traumatized veterans, and (b) mandatory parliamentary permission before Australian engages in any war or indeed any aggression against foreign countries.

 31. US, Australia, civil rights abuse and US-Israeli spying on Australians. Only 2-4 Australians have ever been killed in Australia by jihadi psychopaths (and none before 2014) yet Australia is gripped by US- and Zionist-fomented anti-Arab anti-Semitism, Islamophobia, xenophobia and terror hysteria that since 9-11 has resulted in war criminal Australian participation in US aggression against a swathe of Muslim countries and draconian anti-terrorism laws that savagely erode civil liberties and turn Australia into a kind of police state for people the government doesn’t like and hence for everyone . Ditto America in which only about 60 Americans have been killed by jihadi psychopaths since 9-11. The US Government’s 9-11 false flag operation killed about 3,000 people, launched the US War on Terror (aka the US War on Muslims in which 32 million Muslims have died from violence, 5 million, or from deprivation, 27 million, in 20 countries invaded by the US Alliance ), caused a huge fiscal perversion from health to war, and led to draconian laws violating civil liberties, notably the Patriot Act that has similarly turned America into a kind of police state for people the government doesn’t like and hence for everyone. Indeed, as revealed by world hero Edward Snowden, the US Government, armed with these extraordinary powers to persecute, indefinitely imprison and torture, spies on all its citizens and indeed everyone in the world, including Australia. As revealed by Edward Snowden, Zionist subverted and perverted America has an agreement with Apartheid Israel whereby the US shares bulk intelligence on its allies, including Australia, with this nuclear terrorist, racist Zionist-run, genocidal racist, democracy-by-genocide, Apartheid rogue state.

 In her book “A Billionaire’s Daughter” Ella Blum describes an ordinary German girl from an ordinary German family growing in post-WW1 Germany, through the hyper-inflation of the Weimar Republic and thence through the Nazi era. The most shocking thing about the book was the ordinariness of her life with no glimmerings of awfulness until the tide of war changed in WW2 and she was involved in the awfulness as a nurse . As an ordinary teenage schoolgirl Ella Blum day-dreamed through Hitler speeches and was remote from the awfulness experienced by Jews and other minorities in pre-war Nazi Germany (the only exception was when her father was bullied at work over his “Jewish-sounding” name and promptly joined the Nazi Party to protect his family). Ella Blum wrote the book to warn people about creeping fascism, the “banality of evil” (Hannah Arendt) and the very ordinariness and decency of life for Mainstream ordinary people living in ignorance of the victims of a totalitarian state. Ella Blum concludes “I felt my own pain for not having known about their suffering, for having had blinkers on my eyes while I was a member of a millenarian group, learning to be ideal housewives. Today’s children are born with an open , freer, trusting , and outgoing attitude in contrast to the timid, tentative testing of the waters of my generation. May they never be deceived by those in whom they put their trust”. In a review of “A Billionaire’s Daughter” I concluded: “The powerful message of this book is that ordinary, decent, socially-responsible people slip so easily into an ostensibly benign social current and are so easily deceived. This indeed is a book for all people. At the beginning of the new millennium, living in prosperous, educated, free and open societies, let us not fool ourselves that we are not also being remorselessly manipulated, deceived and disempowered”. Unfortunately, as demonstrated by this essay, people are being horribly and comprehensively deceived – for a comprehensive, alphabetically-organized catalogue of 190 areas in which Australians are being deceived see my 2018 essay entitled “Australia shocked by cricket ball tampering but ignores horrendous Australian crimes from child abuse to genocide”.

 Space does not allow a detailed catalogue of civil rights abuse by US-inspired, draconian anti-terrorism legislation that makes Australia a secret police state with, for example, extensive detention without charge or trial, Australian Intelligence officers (e.g. of the Australian Security and Intelligence Organization, ASIO) having criminal and civil immunity from prosecution, and reportage on any special intelligence operations criminalized with maximum punishments ranging from 5 years' to 10 years’ imprisonment. Australians can be lengthily detained and interrogated without charge or trial and an associate or spouse disclosing that an individual has been so detained or interrogated faces 5 years in prison. Of course in a human rights abuse cancer that is now spreading to Europe, Australian Border Security under the grossly human rights-abusing Coalition Government dictates that refugees (including children) entering Australian territory by boat face indefinite , highly abusive incarceration without charge or trial in remote concentration camps on Nauru or Manus Island, Papua New Guinea.

 32. US and Australia terror hysteria, fiscal perversion and huge US and Australian preventable deaths. Only 2-4 Australians have been killed by jihadi psychopaths (and zero before 2014) but the long-term accrual cost to Australia of the US War on Terror is about $11 billion per year. In contrast to only 2-4 jihadi terrorism deaths ever in Australia, 87,000 Australians die preventably each year from a variety of causes, the breakdown (involving some overlaps) including (1) 26,000 annual Australian deaths from adverse hospital events, (2) 17,000 obesity-related Australian deaths, (3) 15,500 smoking-related Australian deaths, (4) 10,000 carbon burning pollution-derived Australian deaths, (5) 6,000 Australians die alcohol-related deaths, (6) 4,000 avoidable Indigenous Australian deaths, (7) 4,000 asbestos-related deaths, (8) 2,100 Australian suicides, (9) 1,400 Australian road deaths, (10) 630 Australian opiate drug-related deaths with 570 linked to US restoration of the Taliban-destroyed Afghan opium industry, and (11) 300 Australian homicides (80 being of women killed domestically). Look-the-other-way, US lackey Australia commits about $11 billion each year in terms of long-term accrual cost to the US War on Terror and the present cumulative active and passive killing (so far) of over 30 million Muslims instead of trying to save the lives of the 87,000 Australians who die preventably each year. Thanks to US and US lackey Australian mendacity and terror hysteria, about 1.5 million Australians have died preventably since the US Government’s 9-11 false flag atrocity in 2001 – foreign interference indeed.

Of course the Zionist-subverted and perverted US Government does not confine its deadly malignancy to its ANZUS ally Australia. 16 million people die avoidably from dire deprivation each year on Spaceship Earth with a neoliberal, racist and war criminal America in charge of the flight deck. Indeed in rich America 1.7 million Americans die preventably each year from a variety of social and “life style” causes, the breakdown being 443,000 (smoking), 300,000 (obesity), 75,000 (alcohol), 70,000 (air pollution), 45,000 (lack of health cover), 33,000 (motor vehicles), 31,000 (guns), 30,000 (suicides, 20% being US veterans), 21,000 (under-5 year old infants), 21,000 (opiates from US Alliance restoration of the Taliban-destroyed Afghan opium industry from 6% of world market share in 2001 to 90% today), and 15,000 (homicides). American preventable deaths since 9-11 total 28 million. The long-term accrual cost of the Zionist-promoted US War on Terror is about $6 trillion and thus successive Zionist subverted and perverted American Governments have adopted the fiscal perversion of committing trillions of dollars to killing over 30 million Muslims abroad instead of trying to keep 28 million fellow Americans alive at home. When will the long-suffering American people wake up to this horrendous perversion?

 33. American and US-promoted Australian climate criminality. The US (population 326 million) generates world-leading, global warming-driving greenhouse gas (GHG) pollution similar to that of China (population 1.4 billion). Some pertinent revised estimates of annual per capita GHG pollution (taking land-use into account and a Global Warming Potential of methane (CH4) of 105 relative to CO2 on a 20 year time frame with aerosol impacts included) are (in tonnes CO2-equivalent per person per year) as follows: Australia (52.9; 116 if including its huge GHG-generating exports), United States (41.0), China (7.4) and Bangladesh (2.7) , Pakistan (2.5) and India (2.1). US President Obama’s rhetoric acknowledged the existentially serious problem of man-made climate change but his solution involving a coal-to-gas transition was absurd, deceptive and dangerous. Thus methane (CH4) (about 85% of natural gas) is 105 times worse than CO2 as a greenhouse gas (GHG) on a 20 year time frame and taking aerosol impacts into account. Methane leaks (3.3% in the US based on the latest US EPA data and as high as 7.9% for methane from “fracking” coal seams) and a 2.6 % leakage of CH4 yields the same greenhouse effect as burning the remaining 97.4% CH4. Using this information one can determine that gas burning for electricity can be much dirtier than coal burning greenhouse gas-wise (GHG-wise). While gas burning for power generates twice as much electrical energy per tonne of CO2 produced (MWh/tonne CO2) than coal burning and the health-adverse pollution from gas burning is lower than for coal burning, gas leakage in the system actually means that gas burning for power can actually be worse GHG-wise than coal burning depending on the degree of systemic gas leakage. Gas is dirty energy and a coal-to-gas transition simply means long-term investment in another dirty carbon fuel and delaying urgently required cessation of carbon fuel burning. In contrast, President Donald Trump is an ignorant and anti-science climate change denialist, has withdrawn the US from the Paris Climate Change Agreement, and has committed America to climate criminal and unlimited coal, gas and oil use whatever the environmental cost.

Driven by corporate fossil fuel interests and the US-owned and effective climate change denialist Murdoch media (70% of daily city daily newspaper readership in Murdochracy Australia), US lackey Australia has a bipartisan Lib-Lab (Coalition Government and Labor Opposition) policy of rejecting a price on carbon pollution (presently estimated at US$200 per tonne CO2-equivalent on a damage-related basis) and of supporting unlimited coal and gas exports for which Australia is a world leader. The world’s 2010-2050 Terminal Carbon Budget for zero carbon emissions in 2050 has now finally been used up, noting that climate criminal Australia’s bipartisan policy of unlimited fossil fuel exports would exceed that global budget by a factor of 3. Labor at least recognizes the problem and domestically wants to maximize renewable energy. The science-informed Greens sensibly argue for cessation of fossil fuel exploitation ASAP. About half of the Coalition Government are ignorant, anti-science climate change denialists and the remainder are effective climate change denialists by their enthusiasm for coal and gas exploitation for domestic use as well for unlimited and terracidal export.

Australia is a Lobbyocracy and Corporatocracy and massive US-Australia investment and trade no doubt contributes to the effective climate change denialism of the anti-science, and fanatically neoliberal Coalition Government . Kim Beazley (former Labor Leader, former Ambassador to Washington and close friend of the US): “Two way direct and indirect investment between the US and Australia at the end of 2015 stood at $1.45 trillion. In 2015, the increase in US investment was greater than the total stock of Chinese investment. Overall China’s investment of A$74.9 billion in Australia was dwarfed by US investment of A$860.3 billion. US majority owned affiliates employed 310,000 Australians across all sectors of the economy. Wages and salaries totalled A$28 billion… In 2015 our investment in the US stood at A$594.4 billion, 69 per cent of US investment in Australia and 30 per cent of our investment abroad, which includes about A$70 billion in China”. According to the US Embassy, Australia and the United States are trusted trade and investment partners, conducting US$65 billion in two way trade and an investment relationship valued at US$1.1 trillion, making the United States Australia’s largest economic partner. A quarter of Australia’s inward foreign investment – more than A$860.9 billion is from the United States [A$ = 0.75 US$]”.

In 2017 Australian exports to China were A$102.2 billion, China exports to Australia A$64.5 billion and total trade was worth A$164.7 billion. In contrast, in 2017 Australian exports to the US were A$12.3 billion , US exports to Australia were A$31.3 billion and total trade was worth A$43.6 billion. As for investment, by 2017 Australian investment in China totalled A$77.1 billion and China investment in Australia totalled A$65.0 billion. In contrast, by 2017 Australian investment in the US totalled A$664.5 billion and US investment in Australia totalled A$896.9 billion. In short, total annual Australian trade with China is about 4 times greater than with the US, US investment in Australia is 14 times greater than that of China, and Australian investment in the US is about 9 times greater than its investment in China.

In contrast to climate criminal Trump America, China recognizes the existential threat of man-made climate change and is doing something about it. Indeed eminent environmentalist Professor Jorgen Randers (2012): “I am a climate pessimist. I believe (regrettably) that humanity will not meet the climate challenge with sufficient strength to save our grandchildren from living in a climate-damaged world. Humanity (regrettably) will not make what sacrifice is necessary today in order to ensure a better life for our ancestors forty years hence. The reason is that we are narrowly focused on maximum well-being in the short term… I predict, it will be the Chinese who solve the global climate challenge - singlehandedly. Through a sequence of 5-year plans established with a clear long term vision, and executed without asking regular support from the Chinese. They are already well on the way, for the benefit of our grandchildren.”

34. Racist America, racist Australia and xenophobia. Racism is as American as apple pie and as Australian as a pavlova (a cream- and Kiwi fruit- topped meringue named after the famous Russian ballerina Anna Pavlova). US-beholden Australian Intelligence has been feeding the present anti-China, China-bashing, xenophobia and xenophobic line in Australia in concert with the right-wing Murdoch media and the right-wing Coalition Government. The anti-China position of Trump America has already translated into naval brinkmanship in the South China Sea (named as such because it is off the coast of South China rather than off the coast of California), explicit threats by Trump of conventional and nuclear annihilation of China’s neighbour North Korea (threats now subdued after the welcome Singapore Summit) and an escalating US trade war against China (as well as the EU). As outlined above in Section #33, China is Australia’s biggest trading partner but the US, US-beholden Australian Intelligence and US lackey, right-wing politicians are happy to jeopardize this important relationship for perceived domestic political advantage.

On 20 June 2018 I sent the following letter to Australian MPs and media that was referenced by one of my articles: “The climate criminal, US lackey Australian Coalition Government’s China-bashing foreign interference campaign threatens Australians from environmental activists to exporters. UK-, US-, Zionist- and Apartheid Israel-subverted Australia is presently in the grip of salivating xenophobia, notwithstanding that China is Australia’s biggest trading partner, there are 1.3 million Chinese Australians out of an Australian population of 25 million, and 160,000 students from China are studying in Australia as part of Australia’s $20 billion per year Education Export industry. The US lackey Australian Coalition Government with the support of the US-beholden Labor Opposition is rushing through draconian, implicitly Chinese-targeting, human rights-violating, and humanitarian activist- and environmental activist-threatening foreign interference legislation. Mainstream Australian public discussion about foreign interference is almost totally confined to China, this ignoring huge UK, US and Apartheid Israeli interference in Australia. British devastation, perversion and subversion of Australia has been ongoing for over 2 centuries but these awful realities are variously largely or totally ignored by look-the-other-way Mainstream Australia. Basic humanity aside, with 1.4 billion Chinese, 1.3 billion Indians, 4 billion Asians and 1.6 billion Muslims between Australia and Mother England/Europe, Australia (now 76% White and 24% Non-White) should sensibly try to be nice to them”. US-driven Australian xenophobia may make Australian Chinese the new Jews.

35. Neoliberalism, rich America, rich Australia and the Global Avoidable Mortality Holocaust. With America leading the way, extreme neoliberal greed has dominated the world for the last 4 decades but this has come at an enormous human cost. Thus 16 million people (half of them children) die avoidably from deprivation each year on Spaceship Earth with neoliberal One Percenters in charge of the flight deck. The One Percenters now possess 50% of the wealth of the World thanks to a neoliberal order that demands maximal freedom for the smart and advantaged to exploit the human and natural resources of the world for private profit. In contrast, social humanism (democratic socialism, socialism, eco-socialism, the welfare state) seeks to maximize the opportunity, happiness and dignity of everyone by evolving national and intra-national social contracts. Huge wealth disparity is bad for the economy (the poor cannot afford to buy the goods and services they produce) and bad for democracy (Big Money buys influence and votes and hence more unrepresentative power and more private profit). It is estimated that a global 4% Annual Wealth Tax could bring the per capita GDP of all countries up to the level of China and Cuba, countries for which annual avoidable mortality from deprivation is zero (0) i.e. this could ideally abolish the Global Avoidable Mortality Holocaust in which 16 million people die avoidably from deprivation each year. Presently, under greedy, neoliberal regimes, US lackey Australia and America contribute aid as a percentage of Gross National Income of 0.26% and 0.15% , respectively, as compared to Sweden’s 1.36%.

 36. US-dominated Murdochracy, Kleptocracy, Plutocracy, Lobbyocracy, Corporatocracy and Dollarocracy Australia. Like other neoliberal Western democracies, Australia is a Kleptocracy, Plutocracy, Murdochracy, Lobbyocracy, Corporatocracy and Dollarocracy in which Big Money purchases people, politicians, parties, policies, public perception of reality, votes, more political power and hence more private profit. Thus US citizen Rupert Murdoch’s NewsCorp media empire has 70% of the city daily newspaper readership in Australia. The Australian ABC (the taxpayer-funded Australian equivalent of the endlessly lying UK BBC) has a charter obligation to be “balanced” but this means positioning a rather craven ABC between the extreme right-wing, effective climate change denialist, anti-science, anti-environment, pro-war, pro-US, pro-Zionist, pro-Apartheid Israel, pro-Apartheid and greedily neoliberal yellow press Murdoch media and the Fairfax media organization that publishes the now rather depleted but science-informed, quality and “Centrist” Melbourne Age and Sydney Morning Herald.

Despite growing and massive wealth inequality and extraordinary and worsening intergenerational injustice, the salivating Right conservative Liberal Party-National Party Coalition presently ruling Australia still has about 48% of the “2 party preferred vote” electoral support to Labor’s 52% in Australia’s compulsory, preferential voting system. The Coalition, whose supporters range from the ignorant, stupid, bigoted and racist to the homicidally greedy, relentlessly accuses the Centrist-to-Right ABC of being “Left-wing” . Indeed the Zionist-subverted Federal Council of the Liberal Party has recently voted for privatising the ABC (while retaining rural services for the National Party-supporting descendants of the genocidal excrement who ethnically cleansed, robbed and butchered Indigenous Australia) and for following Zionist-subverted America by moving Australia's embassy from Tel Aviv to Jerusalem in nuclear terrorist, racist Zionist-run neo-Nazi Apartheid Israel. Notwithstanding it being the last bastion of decent Mainstream reportage in Australia (together with Fairfax media and the UK-linked Guardian Australia), the ABC, like the mendacious BBC, has an appalling record of fake news through lying by omission – the ABC believes that maintaining “balance” means eschewing reportage of scores of huge, Elephant in the Room, life-and-death realities (e.g. many of those reported here) that might further upset the already salivating Right. Memo to the ABC: opposing speciescide, ecocide, terracide, climate criminality, climate genocide, ethnic cleansing, Apartheid, child abuse, human rights abuse, war, corruption and deadly inequality is not being “Left-wing” , it is being “decent”. Of the “indecent” who think otherwise, in the words of certainly “Left-wing” socialist Australian writer Frank Hardy (author of the formerly banned novel “Power Without Glory”): “They wouldn’t show their blind granny the way to the dunny [outside toilet]”.

 37. Zionist-subverted US and Zionist subversion of Australia. Numerous shocking examples can be given of Zionist and Apartheid Israeli subversion and perversion of Australia. Indeed I sent Australian MPs, media and the Australian Federal Police (AFP) a detailed and referenced dossier documenting 50 ways racist Zionists and Apartheid Israel subvert, pervert and violate Australia – however the Silence has been Deafening in look-the-other-way, US lackey Australia that slavishly follows the lead of Zionist and Apartheid Israeli subverted and perverted America. The US became slavishly beholden to Apartheid Israel after Israeli acquisition of nuclear weapons by 1967 and Apartheid Israel thence became the Zionist tail wagging the American dog. Thus war criminal Israeli PM Sharon (2001): “Every time we do something you tell me America will do this and will do that. I want to tell you something very clear: Don’t worry about American pressure on Israel. We, the Jewish people, control America, and the Americans know it”. The American Zionists were perceived as a threat to American democracy by John Fitzgerald Kennedy (JFK) and his brother Robert Kennedy who ordered the American Zionist Council (AZC) to register as an agent of a foreign power. The AZC evaded the intent of the law by dissolving and renaming itself as the American Israel Public Affairs Committee (AIPAC). The attempts by the Kennedys to protect America from these Zionist traitors failed and eventually died with the murder of both men.

US lackey Australia is so thoroughly Zionist subverted and perverted that it is now second only to Trump America as a supporter of Apartheid Israel through resolute diplomatic support, through disputing the illegality of the war criminal Israeli Occupation of Palestine and through its stand-out rejection of UN Security Council Resolution 2334 condemning Israeli war crimes in Occupied Palestine. Indeed the Australia Liberal Party has now backed Trump’s disgraceful US Embassy move to Jerusalem by supporting moving Australia's embassy from Tel Aviv to Jerusalem.

A telling present example of Zionist perversion of Australia is given by the long-running saga in which a dozen MPs were ordered out of the Federal Parliament by the High Court for being dual nationals of another country . Section 44 of the Australian Constitution states that: “Any person who – (i.) Is under any acknowledgement of allegiance, obedience, or adherence to a foreign power, or is a subject or a citizen or entitled to the rights or privileges of a subject or citizen of a foreign power: or… shall be incapable of being chosen or of sitting as a senator or a member of the House of Representatives” . However the Australian Mainstream journalist, editor, politician, commentariat and academic presstitutes have overwhelmingly ignored the situation of 6 Jewish MPs who, as likely fervent Zionists as members of the fervently pro-Zionist Coalition or fervently pro-Zionist Labor, may violate Section 44 of the Australian Constitution by being “under any [i.e. even some] acknowledgement of allegiance, obedience, or adherence to a foreign power” (to whit, Apartheid Israel) or being “entitled to the rights or privileges of a subject or citizen of a foreign power” (under the racist Israeli Law of Return for Jews but not Indigenous Palestinians ) – indeed the huge, longstanding public discussion about this in US- and Zionist-subverted Australia has been almost totally confined to MPs being “a subject or a citizen… of a foreign power”.

Indeed the scandal goes further. Thus pro-coal, pro-gas and hence anti-environment Minister for Energy and the Environment (!!!), Jewish Zionist MP Josh Frydenberg is apparently – like me - a dual Australian citizen and Hungarian citizen through having been born in Australia and having a parent born in Hungary (and thus being a Hungarian citizen, notwithstanding transient disqualification by fascists and Nazis). According to Wikipedia: “A person acquires Hungarian citizenship at birth if at least one parent is a Hungarian citizen. The place of birth is irrelevant”. The fervent Christian Zionist Australian PM Malcolm Turnbull has followed standard Zionist practice by pulling the Jewish Holocaust Card and has rejected this dual citizenship claim for Frydenberg on the basis that Jewish citizens of Hungary were stripped of citizenship under the pro-Nazi fascists. However one notes that Indigenous Australians were stripped by the genocidal, neo-Nazi White Australians of the lands they had occupied for 65,000 years and were denied even being counted as Australian citizens until 1967 – should Indigenous Australians follow PM Turnbull’s advice and reject citizenship in the country that massacred them, dispossessed them and denied them citizenship for 111 years? As for me, my loyalty is to Australia but I am proud of my Jewish Hungarian family’s outstanding contribution to Hungary (most notably in mathematics and surgery but also in economics, psychology, chemistry and industry), notwithstanding only a dozen of my relatives surviving the WW2 Jewish Holocaust in Hungary in 1944-45. As far as I know, none of my murdered or exiled Jewish Hungarian relatives were Zionists and none were war criminal colonizers of ethnically cleansed Palestinian land.

 Those who supported Nazi Germany could be reasonably described as pro-Nazi and those who support Apartheid Israel can be reasonably described as pro-Apartheid. Apartheid Israel determines that 74% of its now 50% Indigenous Palestinian subjects are excluded from voting for the government ruling them – egregious Apartheid that the UN regards as a crime against Humanity. It is surely utterly unacceptable for pro-Apartheid politicians - such as those in the 100% pro-Apartheid Australian Coalition Government and in the hopefully only 50% pro-Apartheid Australian Labor Opposition - to stand for election in a one-person-one-vote democracy.

 38. US-driven militarisation of Australia. US lackey Australia has a huge defence budget of about A$36 billion per year, and it is estimated that it would have to triple its defence budget if it were not part of the “5-eyes” Anglo club and the ANZUS Alliance with America. Australia is investing hugely in French submarines (A$50 billion) and new British frigates (A$35 billion). While Canada under Trudeau withdrew from buying the Lockheed Martin F-35 Lightning II Joint Strike Fighters, the Australians are proceeding with purchase of 72 F-35s at a budgeted cost of $17 billion . US lackey Australia is critical to US nuclear terrorism via the Pine Gap Joint Australia-US spying facility and is also involved otherwise in US nuclear terrorism e.g. by hosting nuclear-armed US warships, development of hypersonic delivery systems (e.g. missiles travelling at an unstoppable 8 times the speed of sound), development of laser-based uranium enrichment (that carries serious proliferation risks ), and diplomatically as a US lackey (e.g. Australia is second only to Trump America as a supporter of US-backed, nuclear terrorist Apartheid Israel). Australian companies and institutions (e.g. universities) are heavily involved in military research with nuclear terrorist Apartheid Israel that represents a huge threat to Australians. Appallingly, US lackey Australia opposes nuclear disarmament . The sick, pro-war, US lackey Australian Coalition Government wants to a develop a huge Australians arms industry and presently exports arms to a genocidal Saudi Arabia that is engaged in a Yemeni Genocide in starving Yemen.

 39. US corporate interests versus Australian public interest. According to the Australian Government Department of Foreign Affairs and Trade (DFAT) (2015) (A$): “Foreign investment has allowed Australia to enjoy higher rates of economic growth, employment and living standards than could have been achieved through domestic savings alone. Our economy was partly built on successive waves of investment from Britain, followed by the United States and Japan. China has become a major and growing source of investment. The value of Australia's total two-way investment reached $5.1 trillion, up 8.0 per cent from $4.7 trillion in 2014… In 2015, the stock of total foreign investment into Australia reached $3 trillion. Australia's major sources were the United States at $860.3 billion, the United Kingdom at $499.9 billion, Belgium at $238.5 billion, and Japan at $199.6 billion and Singapore at $98.6 billion. Chinese investment reached nearly $75 billion at the end of 2015, making it our seventh largest investor”. Australia’s GDP is about A$1.2 trillion and its gross National Debt is about A$0.6 trillion. Nearly half of foreign investment in Australia has come from the US and UK, and these countries have a correspondingly major say in Lobbyocracy and Corporatocracy Australia.

The Australian Tax Office estimates that tax avoidance is now costing the Australian economy about $2.5 billion a year and that 720 companies with a combined income of $500 billion paid zero (0) tax. Through legal devices numerous American companies pay little or no tax in Australia. These tax-minimizing US companies are thus contributing to the carnage of 87,000 preventable deaths annually in Australia – foreign interference in Australia at a massively deadly level that invites the term “corporate terrorism”. However the shameless, US lackey Australian Government proposes to give $80 billion in tax cuts to corporations, this including tax cuts to tax-minimizing US corporations, with $17 billion going to the banks whose shocking malfeasances are presently being revealed each week by a Royal Commission that the Coalition Government desperately tried to block.

40. Rational risk management, mendacity and American threats to Australian and world hero Julian Assange. The US is gunning for Australian citizen Julian Assange who is an Australian hero and a world hero for founding WikiLeaks and revealing horrendous US malfeasance, subversion and war crimes around the world. Persecuted by Sweden since 2010 over sex charges that were finally dropped in 2017, since mid-2012 Julian Assange has been effectively imprisoned by the US lackey British Government in the Ecuadorean Embassy in London under threat of transfer to the US. Julian Assange has been highly abusively imprisoned under egregious threat for about 6 years for no offence other than finding sanctuary from deadly threat from the Americans. The US lackey Gillard Labor Government (2010-2013) and subsequent US lackey Lib-Lab Governments have refused to protect him. Australian PM Julia Gillard notoriously and falsely accused him of breaking the law over WikiLeaks. WikiLeaks has revealed how key pro-Zionist supporters of Julia Gillard in the 2010 pro-Zionist–led Coup against former Labor PM Kevin Rudd acted as “secret sources” of the US, reporting internal Labor Government deliberations to the US Embassy. WikiLeaks has also revealed how Labor PM Kevin Rudd suggested war against China to Hilary Clinton as an option 'if everything goes wrong'' and how great US friend , former Labor Opposition leader, and thence Ambassador to Washington, Kim Beazley, offered Australian forces in that event.

These Julian Assange-revealed Australian secrets go to the heart of government and the present debate (such as it is in look-the-other-way Australia) about foreign influence in Australia. Thus former PM of Australia, Malcolm Fraser, who came to power in 1975 as the result of a US CIA-backed Coup, became increasingly progressive with the years and commented thus on the WikiLeaks revelations about Rudd and Beazley: “To participate in a conflict with China is totally contrary to our interests. Let me make one thing clear at the outset. I am in favour of the ANZUS treaty [between Australia, New Zealand and the US] , but I am well aware of its limitations. It creates an obligation to consult, but no obligation to commit armed forces on one side or the other… We now know that Australian ministers or prime ministers have given commitments to the US that have been secretly withheld, probably from their own government and certainly from the Parliament. The idea of partnering the US in a war with China, which comes specifically from Kim Beazley's reported comments, is the ultimate example. A war over Taiwan would be an absurdity. The idea that we should participate in such a conflict is unconscionable and totally contrary to Australia's interests and indeed to Australian security” . The late Malcolm Fraser’s comments are critically pertinent to the current, US lackey Coalition-driven xenophobia and the Australian problem of being allied to an anti-China Trump America while China is Australia’s biggest trading partner. Numerous considered opinions from sensible Australians argue that Australia must act resolutely in Australian interests in these circumstances.

Rational risk management, that is crucial for societal safety, successively involves (a) accurate data, (b) scientific analysis, this involving the critical testing of potentially falsifiable hypotheses, and (c) informed systemic change to minimize risk. Unfortunately, this rational risk management protocol is typically perverted at the individual, family or local level, or at the level of the family of nations by (a) lying, self-deception, spin, obfuscation, intimidation and censorship, (b) anti-science spin, this involving the selective use of asserted facts to support a partisan position, and (c) blame and shame that is counterproductive because it blocks reportage crucial for rational risk management and in the worst cases leads to war. As an extraordinary truth-teller Julian Assange has immensely aided rational risk management for Australia, many other countries and indeed America. Those complicit in the threatening and imprisoning of Julian Assange (notably the US, UK and US lackey Australian Governments) are dangerously perverting rational risk management for their countries and the world.

Final comments and conclusions

In US lackey Australia public discussion about foreign interference is overwhelmingly about asserted “foreign interference” threats to Australia from China and ignores the immense actuality of huge subversion and perversion of Australia by the US, UK and Apartheid Israel No doubt, like all other countries, China seeks to present itself before Australians, to legitimately inform itself about Australia, to cultivate business, cultural and personal connections, to interact with the 160,0000 Chinese students studying in Australia, and to interact with its Australian Diaspora of 1.3 million Chinese Australians. Obviously the Australia Government has a right and indeed a duty to keep tabs on all such foreign activities and to ensure that they do not cross a line of unacceptability. However nothing that China is even alleged to be doing even begins to match in the slightest the appalling record of American betrayal, deception, theft, perversion, subversion and soiling of Australia. Of course America has been doing the same to all other countries, including your country too. All that decent people can do is to follow my example as a patriotic Australian - to get the facts and inform everyone they can. Silence is complicity.
