The mass media can / does propagate false information as part of an agenda.
Similarly the above headline is entirely false in its meaning.
According to several sources, Roman Polanski was born Rajmund Roman Liebling (August 18, 1933), in Paris, France (therefore he is NOT Polish) to Russian-Jewish parents.
It's like saying that Russell Crow is an Australian, which he is not, but a New Zealander.
The allegation of "unlawful sexual intercourse with a minor" is NOT entirely correct either.
At the time the girl at the centre of the allegation purported to be 18 years old and definitely looked older than her actual age.
It was a well known fact at the time on the set that the 'romancing' was occurring, and her parents were always near. Others were acting in a similar fashion towards other 'underaged' individuals., but no action was made against the others, only against Polanski ( Liebling ), when he became 'uncomfortable'.
During the Communistic era of Poland, Roman made a few controversial films which did not go well with the authorities.
When he came to America (the land of supposed free speech), he also made a film which was not to the liking of the Zionist financiers. 'They' then killed his then pregnant wife in a macabre manner, and the Authorities did NOT pursue the killers.
It was only via the connections of his wife's father that the killers were found, with plausible story to suit.

Australia is steaming ahead as the fastest growing industrialised nation - with the population set to explode over the next four decades.
As well as importing more people, a baby boom is on its way - so get ready for those baby showers. It’s a proven fact that in tough economic times couples stay at home, make hay and the birth rate soars.
If the G20 leaders lined up in order of expected population growth, Kevin Rudd would be in 2nd place – behind King Abdullah of Saudi Arabia.
No wonder Rudd is smiling in the midst of our recession riddled cousins.
We even beat India and China hands down. Australia is expected to grow at a rate of 65 per cent - well above the global average - according to a survey by the US research group Population Reference Bureau.
Our own Australian Bureau of Statistics conservatively estimates the population will balloon from the current 21 million to 34 million by 2050. While Wayne Swan says Treasury estimates are closer to 35 million – quite a leap.
This presents an enormous opportunity to small business owners.
“In the federal treasurer’s own words, small business is the backbone of the Australian economy – and he’s right on the money,” said COSOBA the Council of Small Business of Australia.
With half of all private sector employees employed by SMEs (small to medium enterprises) the market is going to play a critical role in keeping Australia afloat.
SMEs currently generate a staggering 30 percent of our country's wealth already.
What does this mean? It means we will be facing more people, needing more products and services - which at the moment are increasingly supplied by SME’s.
The SME sector is the life blood of our economy - so it is more important now than ever that SMEs prepare for this future.
Prepare, via long term strategic planning. Global, rather than local, thinking. And by increasing brand recognition.
With Australia increasingly providing assistance to poorer nations, we should also be faced with more export opportunities for SMEs.
So it is vital that our internet presence is mature and sophisticated enough to attract and reassure international enquirers.
However, on the flip side, we are facing:
- Tightening of lending from the banks which has made life difficult for many
- We still have to fight to be heard – ‘big business’ is still the squeaky wheel that gets the oil
- We are faced with illogical and crippling taxes incurred by SMEs – payroll tax, high interest on loans
- Importance of Credit History – now greater focus more than ever.
We really do want a restoring of confidence in the sector. Yes, the Government handouts are helpful, such as the:
- Small business tax break - Extension and expansion of the Small Business Tax Break to 50 percent, available for expenditure incurred up to 31 December 2009;
- Small business support line - $10m over two years to help small businesses with advice during the recession.
- Small business online programme – this scheme is designed to help small businesses participate in the digital economy and enter the world of e-commerce, which can lead to more effective marketing, direct online sales and purchasing, and making it easier for customers to find a local business.
- The new R&D Tax credit (formerly R&D tax concession) supports small businesses by offering up to twice the current value of the tax R&D tax concession that is currently available.
As the backbone of the Australian economy, our characteristics are flexibility, resilience and hard work.
There is no doubt in my mind, that it is small business that has the capacity to capitalise on the recovering economy and exploding population if it is supported by the Government to do what it does best.

More people = cheap labour = SLAVE labour.
NO ONE WINS except the MULTINATIONALS.
A disturbing article out of the Courier Mail over the weekend reports that young children are sporting a fashion trend with an underlying sexual meaning.
Known as shag bands, it is said that if you break one off someone’s wrist you must then, depending on the colour of the bracelet, deliver a hug, kiss, or something far more sexual...
Shag band meanings
Yellow - hug
Pink - hickey
Orange/purple - kiss
Red - lap dance
Green/blue - oral
Clear - whatever the other person wants
Black - sex
White - flash
Author of ‘Getting Real: Challenging the Sexualisation of Girls’, Melinda Tankard Reist joins the show.
What Melinda says
- This suggests that girls are merely service stations for boys.
- This invites sexual assault and could lead to lifelong damage.
- At every level of society, young girls are under the impression that to be ‘cool’ you have to offer sexual favours.
- Parents should talk to their children about being safe.
- Computers should be kept in public spaces and filters should be installed.
- Schools and communities need to offer support of change.
- If kids find themselves in uncomfortable situations, they should let their teachers know.
- Potential damage includes, low self esteem and self harm. There are very serious short term and long term ramifications.
This is a typical move to degrade the children of the masses, and society in general.
What is MOST disturbing about this is that on the surface the problem is being combated, BUT beneath it is being supported by the various authorities.

The public are being wooed by companies and governments with terms live eco-friendly, solar electricity, etc.
New modern homes have options like c-bus (home automation), solar electricity (which is useless in the less sunny areas like Victoria and Tasmania, Water storage tanks (which has come too late and should have been implemented in the 1960's), BUT lack one of the most fore granted technologies, the INTERNET.
In a political move, Telstra is DELIBERATELY not installing enough telephony equipment in the exchanges to cater for new homes to be connected via the telephone line (copper) for ADSL technology.
This is a deliberate move to force customers to use more expensive (usually 2 or 3 times more, for the same amount of data) options, i.e. cable or wireless broadband.
This practice has been going on for over 15 years and NO Australian consumer watchdog (ACCC) NOR the telecoms ombudsmand has done anything about it.
Telstra is an Australian Telecommunications equipment monopoly, as a result Australia has one of the world most expensive telecommunications tariffs.
Media outlets warn motorists to stock up on fuel before certain days, BUT petro chemical bosses deny any wrong doing.
The photo above was taken on the first day of the school holidays, and illustrates that Caltex sells:
- Unleaded 123.9 cents per litre,
- Diesel 119.9 cents per litre
- LPG 59.9 cents per litre.
This is a fraudulent practice by the oil companies holding the motorist at ransom.
Many Australian Motoring bodies concede that the motorists are being ripped off, BUT no government is taking ANY active resolution.
