How the Scam Works

Here’s the rip-off as I see it. For an outlay of $750,000, the bank rids its books of a mortgage worth $2 million, for which it receives $4,250,000. It gets twice as much as the junk is worth.

The more the banks holding junk mortgages pay for this toxic waste, the more the government will pay as part of its 85 per cent. So the strategy is to overpay, overpay, and overpay. Paying 15 per cent is a small price to pay for getting the government to put in 85 per cent to take the most toxic waste off your books.

The free market at work, financial style.

Iowa prosecutors approve delay of Agriprocessors trial

Iowa prosecutors agreed Thursday to a delay in the state trial of Agriprocessors Inc. and its former leaders on child-labor charges.

The Postville meatpacker, its owner and former managers face thousands of charges that they used underage workers. The trial was to be April 20.

The holdup involves electronic records that federal agents seized when they raided the company last May. According to papers that prosecutors filed Thursday, federal investigators are still going over those records, which include internal company e-mails, and they have not turned them over to lawyers in the child-labor case.

UN & IMF Back Agenda For Global Financial Dictatorship

As Georgetown professor and CFR historian Carroll Quigley noted, the goal of the banking families and their minions consists of “nothing less than to create a world system of financial control in private hands able to dominate the political system of each country and the economy of the world as a whole… controlled in a feudalist fashion by the central banks of the world acting in concert, by secret agreements arrived at in frequent private meetings and conferences.”

In 2007, Robert Mundell, “the father of the euro,” noted that “international monetary reform usually becomes possible only in response to a felt need and the threat of a global crisis.”

[I]n reality, the threat of a dirty bomb is yet another illusion. Its aim is to spread radioactive material through a conventional explosion, but almost all studies of such a possible weapon have concluded that the radiation spread in this way would not kill anybody because the radioactive material would be so dispersed, and, providing the area was cleaned promptly, the long-term effects would be negligible. In the past, both the American army and the Iraqi military tested such devices and both concluded that they were completely ineffectual weapons for this very reason.

As news of the accident poured into the global media, the public was assured there were no radiation releases.

The public was then told the releases were controlled and done purposely to alleviate pressure on the core.

The public was told the releases were "insignificant."

But stack monitors were saturated and unusable, and the Nuclear Regulatory Commission later told Congress it did not know---and STILL does not know---how much radiation was released at Three Mile Island, or where it went.

As shown in a January 22, 1963 Warren Commission closed-door secret session, of which a surviving stenographer’s tape (ordered destroyed but was not) clearly shows that the Commission decided early on to go for the lone gunman scenario. They were afraid of finding out more than they wanted to know about Lee H. Oswald and feared if it were discovered that he was a government agent of some type, then the public would never believe the lone gunman theory. Notice the thinking here—they have a predetermined conclusion and they concerned about the pubic not buying it. This is before the first witness was called to testify!

And a swath of homeowners was even more thinly stretched. In 2007, nearly 9.17 million homeowners, or about 12 percent of all owners, spent more than half of their gross income on housing costs, according to tabulations of Census data by the Joint Center for Housing Studies [...]

FBI planting spies in U.S. mosques, Muslim groups say

Ten U.S. Muslim organizations threatened this week to cease working with the FBI, citing "McCarthy-era tactics" by the agency, including efforts to covertly infiltrate California mosques.

The groups claim the FBI has sent undercover agents posing as worshippers into mosques, pressured Muslims to become informants, labeled civil rights advocates as criminals and spread misinformation.

Webmaster's Commentary: 


Mar 22 15:15


These kinds of government tactics violate our fundamental constitutional rights. They make it enormously difficult to sustain grass-roots organizing. They create an atmosphere of fear and distrust which undermines any effort to challenge official policy.

Similar measures were used in the 1960s as part of a secret FBI program known as "COINTELPRO." COINTELPRO was later exposed and officially ended. But the evidence shows that it actually persisted and that clandestine operations to discredit and disrupt opposition movements have become an institutional feature of national and local government in the US.

The fact that the CIA instead destroyed the videos shows that it has something to hide.

Study Backs Bosnian Serb’s Claim of Immunity - and Richard Holbrooke Turns out to be a Liar.

The official, Richard C. Holbrooke, now a special envoy on Afghanistan and Pakistan for the Obama administration, has repeatedly denied promising Mr. Karadzic immunity from prosecution in exchange for abandoning power after the Bosnian war.

“Holbrooke was angry; he was ranting,” the American recalled. He quoted Mr. Holbrooke as saying: “That son of a bitch Karadzic. I made a deal with him that if he’d pull out of politics, we wouldn’t go after him. He’s broken that deal and now we’re going to get him.”

Toxic Asset Plan Foresees Big Subsidies for Investors - (The "Investors" Will Again Be the Banks)

The New York Times Edmund L. Andrews, Eric Dash and Graham Bowley WASHINGTON — The Treasury Department is expected to unveil early next week its long-delayed plan to buy as much as $1 trillion in troubled mortgages and related assets from financial institutions, according to people close to the talks.

The plan is likely to offer generous subsidies, in the form of low-interest loans, to coax investors [read "banks"] to form partnerships with the government to buy toxic assets from banks.

Many investment executives [again read "banks"] said they were worried that participating in any bailout program would expose them to political wrath and potentially steep new restrictions on their own pay.

WASHINGTON — The Treasury Department is expected to unveil early next week its long-delayed plan to buy as much as $1 trillion in troubled mortgages and related assets from financial institutions, according to people close to the talks.

Industry analysts estimate that the nation’s banks are holding at least $2 trillion in troubled assets, mostly residential and commercial mortgages made at the height of the housing bubble.

Although the details of the F.D.I.C. part were still being finalized on Friday, it is expected the government would provide the overwhelming bulk of the money — possibly more than 95 percent — through loans or direct investments of taxpayer money.

But with the exception of my own coverage, there’s been hardly a peep about the fact that Iranian President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad planted the Iranian flag so far north in Nicaragua as soon as the time-tested American nemesis Daniel Ortega took office in January 2007.

"In the immediate aftermath of the tragedy, researchers at the Centre of Explosives Technology Research in Socorro, New Mexico, estimated that up to thirty pounds of explosive was needed to destroy a Boeing 747, if the explosion had occurred in the container. We agree with that estimate," the report says.

Elie Wiesel Stole Book & Identity Says Survivor

Nikolaus Gruner, 81, says Elie Wiesel's book "Night" is " 87% a word-for-word plagiarism" of a Yiddish book by Gruner's friend Lazar Wiesel published in Paris in 1956 entitled "... Un di velt hot geshvign," ("The Silence of the World.")

Investigator uses phony documents to get passports

Yahoo! News WASHINGTON – Using phony documents and the identities of a dead man and a 5-year-old boy, a government investigator obtained U.S. passports in a test of post-9/11 security. Despite efforts to boost passport security since the 2001 terror attacks, the investigator fooled passport and postal service employees four out of four times, according to a new report made public Friday.

_One investigator used the Social Security number of a man who died in 1965, a fake New York birth certificate and a fake Florida driver's license. He received a passport four days later.

_A second attempt had the investigator using a 5-year-old boy's information but identifying himself as 53 years old on the passport application. He received that passport seven days later.

Copyright treaty is classified for 'national security'

Last September, the Bush administration defended the unusual secrecy over an anti-counterfeiting treaty being negotiated by the U.S. government, which some liberal groups worry could criminalize some peer-to-peer file sharing that infringes copyrights.

Now President Obama's White House has tightened the cloak of government secrecy still further, saying in a letter this week that a discussion draft of the Anti-Counterfeiting Trade Agreement and related materials are "classified in the interest of national security pursuant to Executive Order 12958."

Webmaster's Commentary: 

So, Obama is getting ready to do something he knows Americans will not like, and my guess is that it will be to rescind the fair use doctrine in an effort to shut down the blogs.

The problem is that too many blogs are generating their own original content and such a move will only force more original writing and actually accelerate the decline of the corporate media, who actually derive a great deal of their current readership from links embedded in online commentary.

Minister admits German massacre warning was a fake

A second German school not far from the scene of this week’s massacre was evacuated this morning after threats discovered on the internet.

The alert came as a senior minister in the southern state of Baden-Württemberg admitted that an online warning that he claimed had come from the teenage gunman in Winnenden was a forgery - as the administrators of the website had insisted.

Tangled mind of a school killer

But the teenager who, on Wednesday, went on a rampage at his former school and shot dead 15 people, also saw himself as a failure. He was said to have been mobbed by fellow pupils and teachers, suffered fits of depression, had few friends and had visited a psychiatric clinic at least five times to receive treatment.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

I wonder if he was on anti-depressants.

Meanwhile, in another story, it turns out that the internet posts that announced the shooting 6 hours before it happened did NOT originate with this kid, which suggests another Columbine-esque staged event to justify a gun ban.

Secret emails show Iraq dossier was 'sexed up'

Secret Whitehall emails released yesterday provide damning new evidence that the notorious dossier making the case for invading Iraq was "sexed up".

They disclose that the intelligence services were sceptical over the "iffy drafting" of government claims that Saddam Hussein could mount a missile strike on his neighbours within 45 minutes of ordering an attack.

Officials privately mocked assertions that the Iraqi president was covertly trying to develop a nuclear capability and wisecracked that perhaps he had recruited "Dr Frankenstein" to his supposed crack team of nuclear scientists.

Webmaster's Commentary: 
Mar 13 08:30


Simply having a nuclear weapon does not mean the nation that owns it will use it. Many nations possess nuclear weapons. And contrary to all the dire warnings the historical truth is that one and only one country has actually used nuclear weapons against the citizens of another nation and that country is the United States of America. For all the talk about the threat from Iraq and now the threat from Iran, it is the USA which remains the only country to have actually used a nuclear weapon.

German gunman's chatroom posts probably fake - police

Police spokesman Klaus Hinderer said authorities were investigating whether an internet posting was faked after a search of Tim Kretschmer's computer showed no evidence of the posting in a chat room conversation, the Associated Press reported.

The post appeared in a chatroom about six hours before Kretschmer went on the rampage on Wednesday at the school in Winnenden, near Stuttgart.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Was this a staged incident like Columbine to support a new gun ban?

USA Loses the War against Latin American Drug Cartels
Nil Nikandrov,

"DEA’s painstaking care of ensuring reliable «controllable» channels of drug trafficking to Central America, Mexico and the Caribbean countries resulted in the emergence in the region of firmly consolidated mafia groups that worked under the DEA’s protection but never failed to see to their own commercial interests. Their corruption potential was so big that many DEA officials began and still continue to turn into double dealers."

Memo that told Blair aides Saddam Hussein posed no imminent threat

Intelligence experts explicitly warned Tony Blair's aides that Britain was not in "imminent danger of attack" from Saddam Hussein, a confidential memo revealed today.

Household bills to soar because of climate change, claim scientists

Households face soaring bills because of climate change, scientists have warned in claims that everybody will be hit in their pockets by the changes in global weather.

The average cost of living is likely to increase dramatically to pay for the impact of global warming - including higher taxes, higher insurance premiums, and even the cost of keeping the garden in good repair.

FLASHBACK - Left Wing Canadian Paper Says Cheney Directed B52 to Bomb Iran

Consequently, there is considerable circumstantial evidence to argue that the nuclear armed B-52 was part of an apparent covert operation, outside the regular chain of constitutional military command. The alleged authority responsible for this was Vice President Cheney. He very likely used the Secret Service to take charge of a contrived National Special Security Event involving a nuclear armed B-52 that would be flown from Minot AFB. The B-52 was directed to Barksdale Air Force base where it would have conducted a covert mission to the Middle East involving the detonation of one or more nuclear weapons most likely in or in the vicinity of Iran. This could either have occurred during a conventional military strike against Iran, or a False Flag operation in the Persian Gulf region.

The "Anti-semitism" drinking game - version: Solzhenitsyn

No wonder Solzhenitsyn is so rarely mentioned - he said something that a certain group doesn't LIKE even though it is substantiated and credible.

Take a drink for each mention of "Anti-semitism" (or its variants) in this simple wiki page that describes one of this great Russia author's works - remember, if you repeat it often enough, it makes it TRUE (hmmm, who is normally credited with that, hmmmm)?

Post other hyperbolic use of "anti-Semitism", "antisemitism", "antisemitic" etc... as a drinking game, too! Let's make it fun! And when you sober up, read some Solzhenitsyn - it must be pretty good! This one they wouldn't even allow to be published in English!

Life insurer laundered drug money

A now-closed Florida insurance company whose executives have been charged with running an investment scam also laundered drug cartel money, authorities allege.

U.S prosecutors in January charged the two top executives, lead attorney and trustee of Mutual Benefits Corp., of Fort Lauderdale, Fla., with organizing an elaborate Ponzi scheme that cheated investors out of nearly $1 billion.

Court documents obtained by the South Florida Sun-Sentinel indicate the executives also are suspected of fraudulently selling life insurance policies on people with fatal diseases to Latin American narcotics traffickers, who allegedly cashed the policies out early as a way to launder the drug money.

Hersh: 'Executive assassination ring' reported directly to Cheney

Investigative reporter Seymour Hersh dropped a bombshell on Tuesday when he told an audience at the University of Minnesota that the military was running an "executive assassination ring" throughout the Bush years which reported directly to former Vice President Dick Cheney.

The remark came out seemingly inadvertently when Hersh was asked by the moderator of a public discussion of "America's Constitutional Crisis" whether abuses of executive power, like those which occurred under Richard Nixon, continue to this day.

9/11 suspects: 'We are terrorists to the bone'

The self-professed mastermind and four other men charged in the Sept. 11 attacks declared they are "terrorists to the bone" in a statement that mocked the U.S. failure to prevent the killings and predicted America will fall like "the towers on the blessed 9/11 day."

Webmaster's Commentary: 

The propagandists are raising on a busted flush here. "To the bone" is an American colloquialism and not something a Muslim would actually say or write.
