It can't get much worse than a leading investment guru calling Macquarie Bank a potential Enron, and continually reminding investors of those remarks in the light of this very recent news of their continuing failure.
As Paul Grignon points out in this simple animation, at heart, the ONLY currency banks have is "Confidence." Oh dear . . . How sad for the corporation accused of endangering the flying public.

And I guess as Macquarie Bank sink into the mire in 2012 (as predicted by a key analyst in 2007), they could always give Ian Robert Chalmer's Aunty (and co-conspirator), a call for some financial advice . . .

Click on the image to enlarge & read. Addit: Here's another & another large re-tweet of the info exposing Macquarie Bank (while a leading investor asks: Is Mac Bank another Enron?)
I guess Macquarie Bank's a nice little earner for you and your pollie mates, and vice versa. Mac Bank also did extremely well out of you when you were State Premier of New South Wales, Australia.
Now, I began working in a large, Victorian built asylum on the outskirts of London just after my 18th birthday, and I'm still at it nearly 35 years later, a Registered Nurse looking after the acutely mentally ill. All that experience has taught me a thing or two - and in helping people face their demons, I've learnt a key point: Where there's fear, there's power. In other words, identify their biggest fear, and the kindly find the most effective starting point for therapeutic change - while sadly, abusers the World over use that knowledge to exert control.
Now, I don't feel "Kindly" towards you and your rich cronies - and I've identified your biggest fear, EXPOSURE. So expect it daily, and in ever increasing doses.
Almost every day, there's a new story breaking on airport security. Just recently, the tale of cheeky schoolboy Liam Corcoran was buzzing all over Twitter (and every where else for that matter), after he sneaked on to a flight to Rome (from the UK), with no paperwork. So I replied to dozens of Twitter mentions with these pithy words:
Aviation security slashed? Airport-owning Macquarie Bank accused of dangerous cost-cutting http://tiny.cc/4iaphw
As you can see from the image posted at the top of this page, I sparked quite a bit of interest and people were keen to spread the word. That will NOT stop every single day an innocent remains in hell. Capiche?

Schapelle Corby - The Australian Establishment Spits The Dummy At The Public's Continuing Fascination With Schapelle, But Get Used To It Boys
Click on the image above to enlarge and read.
"My Story, penned by Corby and journalist Kathryn Bonella, has sold more than 100,000 copies since its release late last year."
Good morning Australian establishment (or should I say "Crime Inc"?) - WAKEY WAKEY !!!!!
Here's a message for you boys and girls, while you chose to create a public witch burning to hide your tracks, you forgot a cardinal rule - the witch is a primordial archetype that bends to no-one's will, especially yours. You took her out of the box, now just like Pandora's evils, she can never be imprisoned again.
Now doesn't that just suck for you? You're worried about a paltry 30,000 copies of David Hicks book? Get real, Schapelle's sold over 100,000 copies in the first few months, it's still selling, now translated into six languages, and getting reviews all over the World.
And no offence to David Hicks, who I think won a well deserved victory after his horrific experience (I purchased and read the book), you're not a very beautiful young woman with a story that's a dagger in the heart of many rich, powerful crooks.
So what do you reckon, how many copies of Schapelle's next book will sell? And if the Australian State think it's getting sticky hands on the proceeds of that one, think again. They'll have a ferocious fight on their hands, every fraction of the way.
And one other key point, I'm sure the coming tome will give Australia's politically compromised human rights establishment a hugely deserved (and very large), kick in the arse - yes, Amnesty Australia, Australian Lawyers Alliance and Greens, we're looking at you. The sad fact is, human rights in the Land Down Under stops dead in its tracks at the front door of Macquarie Bank.

In 2004 when Schapelle flew to Bali from Sydney Airport, Australia, Sydney Airport Corporation was owned by Macquarie Bank.
She flew on the 8 October 2004, the same day a Director of Macquarie Bank, Ian Robert Chalmers, was importing millions of dollars worth of drugs into the country, using innocent passengers as unwitting drug mules. Chalmers also played a pivotal role in purchasing Sydney Airport for Macquarie.
He was aided by QANTAS baggage handlers with extensive criminal records - such as Tom (more background on "Tom" here). Porters such as Norman Niass and Easton Barrington James also had chronic forensic histories - and the QANTAS security manager at the time, Alan Conwell, had known criminal connections.
This was also the day every single frame of security footage from Sydney Airport vanished without explanation.
Against this background, senior customs officer Allen Kessing directly accused Sydney Airport Corporation of making extremely dangerous savings in aviation security measures to increase their bottom line - but he was heavily victimised for his brave stand.
However, in 2012 a damning documentary has emerged, exploding shocking evidence of the serious security failures and neglect (that condemned this innocent woman to hell), all over the Globe, with further key leaks occurring just after it went to air.

Click on the image to enlarge and read an email from The Australian Lawyers Alliance of 17 July 2012 and some other info. Here's my reply:
Thank you for your email to-day, after I circulated this open note to Michael Mori about Schapelle. As you can seen, it's getting pretty wide distribution.
I first wrote to your organisation (about Schapelle), almost 9 months ago, in October 2011. But despite many phone calls and emails in the interim, I only got a written reply a few weeks ago - and the Alliance has never, at any point, advocated on her behalf or provided legal assistance. Also, the legal "Support" Schapelle got from her homeland was so bad, it led to successful disciplinary action against the practitioners - I refer of course to Mark Trowell QC and solicitor Robin Tampoe. It's not a very good look is it, considering the exemplary and heroic help Australian citizen David Hicks received from USA lawyer Michael Mori?
It's also true your President Greg Barns was a former senior advisor to ex-Prime Minister John Howard, a politician who was at the heart of Schapelle's troubles in 2004 - and a man desperate to avoid public repercussions for poor airport security. Howard was also good friends with Max Moore Wilton, head of the privatised Sydney Airport Corporation, which is/was owned by Macquarie Bank - and facing accusations they stinted on safety to save money. I note Howard chose to shoot the messenger. Current Foreign Minister Bob Carr also has a very close relationship with Macquarie.
Though I guess the plot thickens even further, considering a Director of Macquarie Bank was involved in using innocent passengers as unwitting drug mules on the exact day Schapelle flew.
Now Richard, do you reckon you and your organisation could possibly get your act together re helping Schapelle, and correcting this gross travesty of justice, before this severely abused young woman dies? Contrary to recent lying press reports about her "Improving" health, she's actually walking the razor's edge - and every moment she stays alive is a gift from the angels.
So Richard, please have another word with Greg, and tell him he needs to start doing his job - because you won't stop hearing from me until something practical's done, or you have the guts to put your outright refusal in in writing.

Schapelle Corby: Welcome to Australia Michael Mori, The Man With More Guts Than Any Aussie Legal Eagle
Wishing you a very warm welcome to Australia Michael.
Please take some time out to watch this documentary about Australia's dirtiest little secret - the one even Amnesty Australia's running from. Here's my pithy words to them - and here's my words to Russell Crowe, who forgets to mention the innocent when they fall out of fashion.
You've got more guts than any lawyer in this country for taking on your own Government - because as my comments to human rights lawyer Jennifer Robinson explain, the only service the legal fraternity in Australia has rendered to Schapelle is a sharp knife in the back to protect vested interests.

Addit: As far as I'm aware, this is the real Russell Crowe's reply to this blog post, apologies if it isn't - and I'll correct it as soon as hear any different.
I note your outraged words about Schapelle in 2005, even so she got a savage 20 year sentence, the same as Umar Patek who helped slaughter over 200 people.
Now she's hovering between life and death, I wonder why you're so silent about her huge suffering, as this explosive new documentary proves she's innocent, as do the newly leaked minutes of 2005 New South Wales Crime Commission meeting.
Are you a fair weather friend, frightened off by the corrupt and vicious media smear campaign against her? Let's face it Russell, drug smuggling baggage handlers aren't good for business, just as baby-killing dingoes weren't good for Australia's Northern Territory tourist trade. Lindy Chamberlain's ex-husband Michael says his ex-wife was deliberately smeared to protect commercial interests, so the parallels are stark.
Look forward to hearing from you again Russell, she desperately needs your help.
The support group for Schapelle is here.

You know damn well Schapelle's innocent, as the evidence in this explosive new documentary proves it, as well as the newly leaked evidence contained in the minutes of a 17 October 2005 New South Wales Crime Commission meeting - yet you're doing NOTHING. Why?
I've phoned your office, and sent you multiple emails and faxes - as have many others.
Your very close relationship with Macquarie Bank, owners of Sydney Airport Corporation is well documented - as are accusations they deliberately stinted on aviation security at the time of Schapelle's arrest to save money. Though I note the Australian Government chose to shoot the messenger.
I also note the gross corruption evident at Sydney Airport during the term of the New South Wales ALP State Government. I guess it's not everyday criminal QANTAS baggage handlers get $1.6 million (also documented here), to shut the hell up about corrupt police? Or maybe it is? Who knows?
So I think the public need to judge the facts. That's why, on a regular basis, I'm searching Twitter (and Facebook), conversations for mentions of your name, and sending this comment in reply, linking to this blog post:
Bob Carr: Is he corrupt?
Posted by Kim at 8:24 PM
Click on the picture to enlarge & read.
As this explosive documentary (and recently leaked police minutes), prove, Schapelle's innocent and the victim of systemic Australian airport corruption - which Australian Foreign Minister Bob Carr is refusing to acknowledge. Here's my recent phone call to Carr's office - and here's graphic info on appalling discrimination against an Australian (by the Indonesian Government), including background on the dangerously unsafe and unfair trial she received.
I also note (much to my disgust), that Amnesty Australia has never given Schapelle a shred of support (or even a mention), despite your high profile support of Australian citizen David Hicks. His treatment was a stain on civilised society, and your stance was entirely correct - so why the hell are you silently allowing Schapelle to die in a squalid hell hole?
Tell me Anthony, do your close business and banking relationships in the region keep you silent, considering the billions at stake in Australia's relationship with Indonesia - or is Schapelle's case far too embarrassing because it exposes both the "War on Terror" and "The War on Drugs" as shams? Ex-Australian Prime Minister John Howard didn't give a damn about either, all he cared about was maximising the profits of his friend Max Moore-Wilton (and all his other cronies at Macquarie Bank), owners of the privatised Sydney Airport Corporation. Adequate aviation security costs far too much money, and whistle-blowing Senior Customs Officer Allen Kessing made this fact blatantly clear, which is why he got shafted too.
Please also note Foreign Minister Bob Carr's close relationship with Macquarie Bank.
So to sum up Anthony, Schapelle's persecution is NOT a "Drug case," she's a political prisoner and the victim of corruption that goes to the highest levels. Please rescue your reputation by doing something about it.

Schapelle Corby: Will The Australian Greens Desert Julian Assange When He's No Longer "Fashionable," In The Same Way They Deserted Schapelle?
Click on the picture to enlarge and read the stark evidence. In 2005 when Schapelle was "Fashionable" the Australian Greens arranged demos in support of her, but in 2012 after savage media smears and lies, they've abandoned her completely (see their email in that graphic, of 11 July 2012, in response to this request, sent a whole 5 months earlier) - despite her dangerously deteriorating health and appalling living conditions, and despite overwhelming evidence of her innocence in a shocking new documentary, and these recently leaked police minutes.
So watch out Julian Assange, you've got fair weather friends. As soon as the Greens have used you up and milked you for all the publicity they can get - and as soon as you fall out of favour (in the same way Schapelle has) - they'll be off like a shot.
I'm also sorely reminded of Shane Dowlings's recent pithy analysis of the Green's activities vis a vis Julian Assange. Maybe NO politician is to be trusted?
Posted by Kim at 8:32 AM
Let's get this clear, I have a very low view of all politicians in Australia, including the Greens, because they're no more than puppets on a stage, moving and acting within a set paradigm. They're controlled by far greater forces - which is not to say they receive direct orders (though some might). It's more like knowing where the boundaries are, and why not to step over them.
And the "Far greater forces"? I think Paul Grignon explains it very well in his animation Money as Debt, and British comedian Robert Newman takes a darkly humorous look at the true schisms underlying our Global rivalries in The History of Oil. So in other words, if you want to know what's really going in the World, follow the money trail, and follow the energy trail. Naomi Klein also did an excellent write up of these ruthless corporate/banking/business psychopaths in her book The Shock Doctrine. Nasty stuff.
However, pollies aren't silly. It's not wise to openly support a few rich b****ds, and it's even wiser to give the appearance you oppose them. People are also more easily controlled if you can get them fighting amongst themselves and blaming each other - hence the dog whistle and wrapping yourself in the flag. They're devices which have powerful psychological roots, explained at length by the likes of Wilhelm Reich in The Mass Psychology of Fascism. However, these manoeuvres can backfire against those with money and power, as they did when a huge number of Aussies were very, very angry with Indonesia for Schapelle's 20 year sentence. That was not in the interests of the billions corporate Australia had (and still has), invested in that country. It was just after that we saw the manufactured white powder incident (demonising Schapelle's supporters), plus the media witch burning of an innocent woman.
Those on the Left were encouraged to view supporting Schapelle as "Racist" - and those on Right were coached to see her as a "Druggie." Meanwhile an innocent woman drowns in the middle.
Those on the Left were encouraged to view supporting Schapelle as "Racist" - and those on Right were coached to see her as a "Druggie." Meanwhile an innocent woman drowns in the middle.
Now, to get to the point. The corporate Aussie media was extremely muted on the paltry 20 year sentence given to Indonesian terrorist Umar Patek for murdering 200+ people - content to let it pass after one or two outraged news articles. They also cringed at comparing it to Schapelle's 20 year term for 4.2 kilos of marijuana (apart from a couple of press letters). Why? Because despite all the rhetoric about "National pride" when it suits them, this kind of thing is REALLY bad for business.
In other words, using "Nationalism" to control and manipulate people is very much like holding a tiger by the tail, you don't know when it's going to turn around and eat you for lunch. It's a very fine balancing act. So Schapelle's supporters are tipping the scales - big time, and this is how. Firstly, by using the net continuously (a huge player, as big as the corporate media, as that ageing behemoth goes down the gurgler).
It's very easy to search Twitter and Facebook daily for references to:
And send this in reply:

Plus news ads and thousands of flyers like this will be (at the appropriate times), distributed in key seats. That's not too expensive either, because research shows quite a few shockingly marginal electorates are serviced by small, completely independent local newspapers.
To summarise, David didn't kill Goliath by brute force - he killed him with a well-aimed shot in a vital spot. So here's a message to the elites in both Australia and Indonesia (who probably have more in common with each other than their own people), we're sick of you screwing over ordinary, vulnerable citizens - and we're about to re-dress the scales in some small way.

Also (let's face it), as well as exposing their hypocrisy, it's an excellent way of spreading the truth about the corruption that jailed an innocent woman - and it's already getting very big re-tweets.
Posted by Kim at 9:20 AM
In 2005 Australian woman Schapelle Corby was given a 20 year sentence by a Bali judge for allegedly smuggling 4.2 kilos of marijuana into the Indonesian island, from Australia.
In 2012, Indonesian terrorist Umar Patek was given a 20 year sentence for helping to murder over 200 people (including 88 Australians), in the 2002 Bali bombing.
Has the World gone mad? Also remembering (of course), that most of Patek's co-conspirators are already free.
Here's the documentary about the Australian airport corruption that condemned an innocent woman, plus some new evidence that came to light just after it was released.
Here's info about the massively severe sentence Schapelle received, compared to the lenient stretches handed out to Indonesians for similar (or much worse), drug offences.
Here's info about the corrupt and unfair trial Schapelle got. The Indonesian court demanded she had to prove her innocence, as shown in Judge Sirait's bizarre statements, which completely trashed every known standard of criminal justice. He then went on refuse forensic testing of the physical evidence (after gross mishandling by the court), and ordered it's destruction by fire, so it could never be introduced into a further appeal - despite expert testimony that plant material can be successfully be tested, even years later.
The only "Evidence" against Schapelle (used in her conviction), was the uncorroborated word of police and customs officers - otherwise known as "Verballing." They didn't even speak English, refused to weigh her luggage on arrival (to compare it with her check-in weight), and trashed every frame of CCTV relating to her arrest and interrogation - despite the fact there is no flow of of marijuana FROM Australia, TOBali, and there never has been (for very obvious economic reasons). This is also confirmed by Australian Customs and numerous press reports.
Schapelle's sentence was also 6 years longer than the term imposed on Indonesian terrorists who helped to de-capitate three children on their way to school, and 5 years longer than the term imposed on the Bali robber who murdered a young Australian woman with 37 deep knife wounds - and 16 years longer than the penalty given to a drug-dealing Bali jail boss.

Click on the image to enlarge & read it. (Documentary exposing the corruption that jailed an innocent woman here and some newly leaked evidence here).
Seems Indonesian President SBY is demanding the release of his people smugglers. This is hypocritical. Why? Because to ask for justice and mercy, you have to give it. President SBY wants an awful lot from Australia, while giving very little in return.
When Australian Schapelle Corby was sentenced to 20 years jail in Bali for possession of 4.2 kilos of marijuana (in squalid conditions, compared to Australian jails), the highest sentence ever given to an Indonesian for a similar crime was just 5 years, and one man found with 161 kilos of the drug got just 10 years. That's proved in this 2005 fax from Schapelle's Indonesian lawyer to then Australian Prime Minister John Howard.
Then (of course), let's not forget the tiny (by comparison), 14 year 6 month sentence given to Indonesian Khairul Rozi when he was found in possession of 1.7 tons of marijuana, in 2009. Here's the Indonesian news article about that, and here's the Google translation.
And as this clear graph shows, before the recent five year reduction in Schapelle's sentence, her term was over 8 times higher than the average Indonesian (for the same crime), and even after the reduction, it's over 6 times higher. Those figures were compiled from information given to her support group by Indonesian justice activist Arifin Wardiyanto (which can also be seen in this table).
But, even more shockingly, Indonesian terrorist Umar Patek was recently given 20 years (the same sentence as Schapelle for 4.2 kilos of marijuana), for helping to murder over 200 people, including 88 Australians. Here's some more background on that, including a widely distributed "Letter to the Editor," and here's a flyer/news ad.
And here's even more news. The term "People smuggler" is all over Twitter, every day - so as often as possible, I'll do a search on those words, and send this tweet in reply, linking to this blog post:

Click on the picture above to read Bob Carr's latest literary offering on his blog, and here's the reply he'll never publish (so I'm now searching Twitter & Facebook for all references to Melinda, and posting this link to the authors) . . .
I’m very glad Melinda’s was released Bob, it must be a great relief to her family. But what about getting Schapelle home from an Indonesian hell hole for a crime she didn’t commit? I guess Melinda’s experience wasn’t pleasant, but Schapelle’s has been a damn sight worse, considering her 20 year sentence.
Though I guess it’s a bit embarassing for you (isn’t it), when an Australian state Labour Government rewards a dangerous criminal (working as a Sydney Airport QANTAS baggage handler on the day/hour Schapelle flew), with nearly $1.6 million of public money to shut the hell up about corrupt police. Then of course, let’s not forget the 200 kilos of cocaine these crooked workers imported into Australia in 2004 (using innocent passengers as unwitting drug mules), without doing any time for it.
Is that why you’re slimily avoiding the newly leaked direct evidence of her innocence, even though you’ve been confronted with it many times? As well as all the other evidence documented at The Expendable Project?
How much longer can you run Bob, considering what I just wrote to the recent apologist for Indonesian savagery Yasmi Adriansyah?
