Eurozone Debt Crisis 2.0: Dollar Sucks Less than Euro, Again

Eric Blair
Activist Post

The grand symphony of currency manipulation seems more finely orchestrated than ever before. However, it's not necessarily the fundamentals that are moving currencies so much as global perception. In the battle between the Fed's quantitative weakening of the dollar versus the eurozone debt crisis, the dollar is winning this round of who sucks less.

A BRIBE TOO GOOD TO REFUSE - By Stephen Lendman

Israeli soldiers closed all roads and “negligently used dangerous high-velocity tear-gas projectiles,” able to cause serious injuries or death. Similar attacks occur regularly throughout the West Bank and East Jerusalem as well as frequent Gaza incursions by land against civilians, including farmers; sea against fishermen; and air against neighborhoods, communities, and other non-military targets.

German Interior Minister Warns of ‘Imminent’ Terror Attacks

Germany announced Wednesday that they have received solid intelligence of planned terror attacks in Europe by the end of November.

Interior Minister Thomas De Maiziere said the threat was connected to the early November parcel bomb scare and should not be taken lightly. Thomas ordered tightened security in airports, train stations, and other suspected targets within Germany.

Officials have claimed that the threat is connected to the early November plot that involved Mumbai style terror attacks in multiple cities in Europe. The magic group known as Al Qaeda apparently have the ability to launch multiple attacks in Europe from the caves of Pakistan and Afghanistan.

ERIC CANTOR AND THE PROVOKING OF AMERICAN ANTISEMITISM: By Dr. Lawrence Davidson

What Eric Cantor did on November 10th was illegal. He broke the law. The Law he boasted about violating is known as the Logan Act. Essentially what Cantor did was tell the leader (Prime Minister Netanyahu) of a foreign country that he will protect that country from the official policies of the President of the United States–the person charged by the Constitution to carry out the nation’s foreign policy.

Crash JPMorgan, Buy Silver Now – A Report

Basically, the Art of Deception is nothing new, especially in financial markets. Deception is fundamentally at the very heart of the American Financial System given that the Federal Reserve is not a federal institution but rather a syndicate of Global Banks – also known as the World Central Banks. Some would argue – the New World Order.

THE WORLDWIDE REVOLUTION IN ON

The following Videos are representative of the Worldwide Effort Underway NOW to Crash JPMorgan by taking PHYSICAL DELIVERY of ALL METALS. Silver which is traded via ETF (electronic traded funds), where reportedly, JPMorgan and others have been MASSIVELY Overselling Silver at a rate of 100 to 1. By demanding delivery, people are legally demanding their Silver to be delivered into their possession.

Borders to close Santa Barbara store

National book retailer Borders is closing its downtown Santa Barbara store amid a nationwide wave of store closings.

“It’s sad that this Borders is leaving State Street,” said Roy, who’s been with the company for nine years, the past three months at the Santa Barbara location.

The store has about 35 employees, he said...

Senator Labels Intrusive TSA Measures Mere “Love Pats”

As the intrusive TSA security measures implode nationwide, the usual shills have surfaced. CBS, the same company that pushed the fraudulent WMDs in Iraq story, has posted an article titled, “Senators and TSA Defend “Love Pats” at Airports.”

Apparently, low IQ TSA thugs putting their hands INSIDE your pants is a simple love pat down. This is almost too ludicrous to report!

Sen. Claire McCaskill apparently believes that strangers fondling your breasts and genitals is an act of love. As the London Guardian so elegantly put, these pat downs are far from love pats, in fact they are a form of sexual harassment!

N.J. Town Outlaws Sleeping In Public

Getting some shuteye in one New Jersey town could land you in hot water, depending on where you lay your head, 1010 WINS’ Steve Sandberg reports.

In Roselle Park, it is against the law and you could be fined or arrested for sleeping in public.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

The criminalization of homelessness continues apace in this country.

And the utterly braindead concept of fining the homeless for sleeping in public: where are they supposed to get the money to pay the fine if they are jobless and homeless?!?!?

A lot of thought must have gone into the creation of this legislation!

Debt collectors using Facebook to stalk and humilate

"Now Facebook does a debt collector's work for them," Howard told Zimmer. "Now it's not only family members, it's all of your associates. It's a very powerful tool for debt collectors to use."

Howard believes stalking through Facebook could become a standard technique for debt collectors if action isn't taken.

"It's getting the desired result, and that is to start a domino effect of panic and embarrassment among family and friends, and people will do anything to stop that," he said.

Howard wants MarkOne Financial to stop using Facebook and other social media to harass Beacham's family and friends. He's filed a lawsuit to make his point.

GORDON DUFF: THE “CALIFORNIA MYSTERY MISSILE”

AN EPIC AMERICAN FAILURE

The submarine launch of an ICBM off the California coast on November 8 is a milestone in American history. The immediate denials that it was an American test were a public relations disaster. America’s government does little but lie to its people, 9/11, Osama bin Laden, we could go on forever. In fact, nothing coming out of Washington or the press is remotely credible and it has finally been proven.

A submarine comes approaches America’s heavily guarded coast, through a network of defenses costing billions, and launches an ICBM capable of carrying up to 10 hydrogen bombs, launches the missile 2 minutes from Los Angeles, and we are utterly unaware? This is the same military we trust our children’s lives to?

REALITY REPORT #70 - Revealing Unlikely Terrorists

In this jam packed edition of the Reality Report Gary Franchi gets wind of a recently declassified investigation from a 1963 Senate Foreign Relations Committee. From it he breaks down the truth of how terrorism was used against the United States to manipulate our Middle East policy. You will never guess who was behind the terrorism. Bob McIlvaine joins the show to deliver the "behind the scenes" look at what happened when he entered FOX studios to disclose the truth of the collapse of WTC Building Seven while seeking justice for the son he lost on 9/11. Bob Dwyer joins the broadcast to give the details on the new super patriot event scheduled for December 12 at the historic Faneuil Hall in Boston, MA. Gary shares a list of important upcoming events that you need to attend. Nina delivers you the headlines this week including a story about abolishing the TSA and Ron Paul's new committee appointment. She also gives you the facts on the two girls expelled from school for raising awareness for breast cancer. Nina also provides an update on the Canadian hearings about police brutality during the Toronto G20. We read viewer mail about the mystery missile and a sneaky Congressman is branded an Enemy of the State.

TSA Chief Faces Lawmakers On Pat-Downs, Body Scans

The alternative news has made it IMPOSSIBLE for the corporate media to ignore the intrusive naked body scanners. This story has gone ultra viral, with thousands of American citizens demanding that their genitals not be fondled by low IQ TSA Mongrels.

The head of the Transportation Security Administration Wednesday defended his agency’s security procedures, telling lawmakers it is “using technology and protocols to stay ahead of the [terrorist] threat and keep you safe.”

John Pistole’s testimony before the Senate Committee on Commerce, Science and Transportation follows a controversy that broke out over the past week about the agency’s full body scans and pat-downs.

Flashback: Military Industrial Complex Prepares Mass Graves for U.S. Citizens

A usually quiet U.S. Department of Veterans Affairs Cemetery, has been extremely active, with trucks and construction equipment working throughout the night. The National Memorial Cemetery of Arizona is a beautiful 225 acre facility located in Phoenix.

For the past 30-45 days in the early hours of the morning until sunset, a massive construction operation has been underway. Major amounts of earth have been excavated out about 9-10 feet deep and 600-1000 feet wide. There are multiple locations on the property like this. From the satellite view, there appears to be even more sections that have been covered with the concrete lids and backfilled to look as if nothing is there.

TSA Tyranny Continues, Hands In Your Pants and So Much More

The TSA has taken their tyranny to new levels, openly breaking the law in order to push their police state security. American Citizens are being subjected to the groping of their genitals by low IQ TSA agents.

A report by Fox News has indicated that there will be NO religious exemptions when it comes to invasive TSA procedures.

The Transportation Security Administration says airline passengers won’t get out of body imaging screening or pat-downs based on their religious beliefs.

TSA chief John Pistole told the Senate Homeland Security Committee on Tuesday that passengers who refuse to go through a full-body scanner machine and reject a pat-down won’t be allowed to board, even if they turned down the in-depth screening for religious reasons.

WHAT DID WIKILEAKS REALLY TELL US ABOUT IRAN?

By Ali Gharib

A source provides details to the American government about the nefarious activities of a Middle Eastern country. That information ends up in scores of secret U.S. government documents. Subsequently, the information winds up on the front pages of major newspapers, and is heralded by war hawks in Washington as a casus belli.

Sound familiar? It should, but perhaps not in the way you’re thinking. Here’s a hint: It’s not 2003, but 2010. This is the story of what happened recently to Iran in the wake of the latest WikiLeaks document release, where US military field reports from Iraq made their way into major national newspapers and painted the Islamic Republic as a force out to murder U.S. soldiers in Iraq.

The jaws of debt are about to devour America.

America’s problem is that 40 cents out of every budget dollar spent is borrowed. The government will add $1.3 trillion to the national debt this year alone.
Read that again. Forty percent of America’s current federal expenditures is borrowed. How long can you borrow 40 percent of your yearly salary on credit cards and personal loans before the interest payments leach the life out of you and you start defaulting?

Note to Mike, hopefully you will like this better than my last submission.

Don't Pay Credit Cards

Caterpillar Corporation applauded the Chinese for directing their stimulus towards the people. All American politicians and treasury people have done is to direct the bailout to the banks who scammed us.

The banks have decided to raise interest rates rather than pass their inexpensive borrowing from the government along to the burdened credit card holders. They have become loan sharks in the way that they have desperately attempted to charge their unfair rates with complete government immunity. At a time when rates should be declining, they are rising. This is not the way to help the economy recover.

Senate Bill S 510 Food Safety Modernization Act vote imminent: Would outlaw gardening and saving seeds

Senate Bill 510, the Food Safety Modernization Act, has been called "the most dangerous bill in the history of the United States of America." It would grant the U.S. government new authority over the public's right to grow, trade and transport any foods. This would give Big brother the power to regulate the tomato plants in your backyard. It would grant them the power to arrest and imprison people selling cucumbers at farmer's markets. It would criminalize the transporting of organic produce if you don't comply with the authoritarian rules of the federal government.

This tyrannical law puts all food production (yes, even food produced in your own garden) under the authority of the Department of Homeland Security. Yep -- the very same people running the TSA and its naked body scanner / passenger groping programs.

Stop the Internet Blacklist: S. 3804

Combating Online Infringement and Counterfeits Act (COICA)creates two blacklists of Internet domain names. Courts could add sites to the first list; the Attorney General would have control over the second. Internet service providers and others (everyone from Comcast to PayPal to Google AdSense) would be required to block any domains on the first list. They would also receive immunity (and presumably the good favor of the government) if they block domains on the second list.

The lists are for sites "dedicated to infringing activity," but that's defined very broadly -- any domain name where counterfeit goods or copyrighted material are "central to the activity of the Internet site" could be blocked.

The Holocaust Survivor Whose Life Is In Danger Again (By Israel)

First they threatened to burn his house down. Then they pinned leaflets to his front door, denouncing him as a Jewish traitor. But Eli Tzavieli, an 89-year-old Holocaust survivor, is defiant. His only “crime” is to rent out his rooms to three Arab students attending the college in Safed, a religious city in northern Israel that was until recently more famous for Jewish mysticism and Madonna.

A campaign waged by Shmuel Eliyahu, the town’s radical head rabbi, culminating in a ruling barring residents from renting rooms to Israeli Arabs, means that Safed is fast emerging as a byword for racism.

While such measures may be considered as last resort by Beijing, if implemented, impact on corporate earnings could be quite negative. “Higher resource prices may force authorities to turn to price controls rather than tighten policy. It occurred in 2007, ending the bull market despite strong growth,” Nomura says...

Stargate of Yemen

Dominant Social Theme: Soon the world will be a better place thanks to space aliens and stargates.

Free-Market Analysis: There is a new sub-dominant theme making the rounds on the Internet among the more extreme 'Net web sites. Being professional meme watchers, we investigated. The meme has to do with the discovery of a hidden stargate off the coast of Yemen and was first reported in January 2010. Apparently, so the reports tell us, a massive deployment of warships now circle the stargate, which is due to become active at any time. There are Youtube videos about the stargate (see links in above excerpt). Once the stargate activates, the world will become more peaceful, we are led to believe, and soldiers will lay down their weapons.

Yemen? What a coincidence.

November 13, 2010 "Salon" - - Soon-to-be GOP House Majority Leader Eric Cantor met on Wednesday with Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu -- the same day when the actual U.S. Secretary of State met with Netanyahu -- and vowed that he and his GOP colleagues would protect and defend Israeli interests against his own Government. According to a statement proudly issued by Cantor's own office:

Regarding the midterms, Cantor may have given Netanyahu some reason to stand firm against the American administration.

"Eric stressed that the new Republican majority will serve as a check on the Administration and what has been, up until this point, one party rule in Washington," the readout continued. "He made clear that the Republican majority understands the special relationship between Israel and the United States, and that the security of each nation is reliant upon the other."

Redeeming Role for a Common Virus: Ability to Kill Cancer

A common virus that can cause coughing and mild diarrhea appears to have a major redemptive quality: the ability to kill cancer. Harnessing that power, researchers at Georgetown Lombardi Comprehensive Cancer Center, part of Georgetown University Medical Center, are conducting a clinical trial to see if the virus can target and kill certain tumor types.

By the age of five, most people have been exposed to the virus, called reovirus. For some, it can trigger brief episodes of coughing or diarrhea while many other don't develop any symptoms. The body simply overpowers the virus. But what scientists have discovered is that the virus grows like gangbusters inside tumor cells with a specific malfunction that leads to tumor growth. That finding led researchers to ask: Is it possible to use the virus as a treatment?

Israeli Deputy PM: Wall Should Become Official Border For Israel

Verifying the fears that Palestinians have voiced for years (which have constantly been denied by Israel), Deputy Prime Minister Dan Meridor told an interviewer with Ha'aretz newspaper that Israel plans to use the Wall constructed inside the West Bank as the official border of the state of Israel.

Since its creation in 1948, Israel has never declared its borders, and has continually expanded its territory onto Palestinian land. The Annexation Wall that Israel has constructed in the West Bank over the last eight years snakes through the Palestinian Territory, annexing huge swaths of land, including all of the hilltops and 90% of the water supply.

Crime is probably the main concern in Argentina, with inflation in a very close second place, but you must understand that its been almost 10 years now since our economy collapsed and things have… lets just say, “evolved” into a new reality for us. For several years after the 2001 collapse, here as well, inflation was the main topic, the greatest concern people had. I find this to be interesting in many ways...

ALAN HART: THE OBAMA-CLINTON GAME PLAN FOR ISRAEL/PALESTINE

What, really, is the Obama-Clinton game plan for Israel/Palestine?

It doesn’t matter that Netanyahu may have said to Hillary Clinton in their seven or eight-hour conversation something like:

“There’s no point in you asking for a freeze in Jerusalem. I couldn’t deliver it even if I wanted to, and I don’t.”

What any Israeli prime minister can or cannot deliver because of the pathological mindset of most Israelis is not the point. It is that if peace is to have a last chance, the Zionist (not Jewish) state must be obliged to comply with international law (not to mention a host of UN Security Council resolutions).

In my analysis there are three possible readings of the Obama-Clinton game plan.

This morning Fox News reported the fact that travelers were unhappy with being groped by TSA agents. In fact, one man was quoted as saying,

“If you touch my junk I will have you arrested”

Predictably, Janet Napolitano (DHS) is pushing the outdated claim that taking naked pictures of you and your family is for your own safety.

111 Obamacare Waivers And Counting – Can The Rest Of Us Get Waivers From Having To Comply With Obamacare Please?

In a stunning admission of just how job-killing and business-crushing the new health care law really is, the Obama administration has issued a staggering total of 111 Obamacare waivers (and counting) so far. The list of the dozens of companies and organizations that have been approved for a waiver is very, very deeply buried on the website of the Department of Health & Human Services. In fact, it takes six separate clicks to get to the list. Some of the companies that have been granted waivers include McDonald's, Darden Restaurants (owners of the Olive Garden and Red Lobster restaurant chains), Aetna, the United Federation of Teachers Welfare Fund in New York, and Dish Network. These Obamacare waivers cover a total of 1.2 million Americans. However, as news of these waivers spreads, it is inevitable that thousands more companies will want to apply. In the end, tens of millions of Americans may be covered by health plans that have been exempted from Obamacare. So can the rest of us get in on this action or is the Obama administration going to play favorites with these waivers?

Flashback: Philly Protesters Seize Street to Demand Housing Rights

Philly Protesters Seize Street to Demand Housing Rights
by Jeff Rousset | 12.05.2009
Honkala criticized the government for bailing out banks and corporations, and spending tens of billions of dollars to escalate war, while neglecting the swelling masses of Americans who are living in poverty and homelessness.
“Bail out the people, not the banks!” the group chanted in unison.

Are 'terrorists' more dangerous than how we react to them?

[I]f I were an actual terrorist boarding a flight in any American airport, why would I waste my time trying to fool the TSA and smuggle a 'bomb' on board a plane when I could cause far more havoc by simply taking the same bomb and walking to the busiest local shopping mall, tossing my bomb in a rubbish bin at the food court and walking slowly away.

BOOM!

The 'terrorists' have just made every shopping facility in America a no go area. The greatest hit to a consumer economy ever! Why, if the terrorist threat is so real, are soft targets like shopping malls not blowing up every week? A true terrorist would simply bypass flying and blow up soft civilian targets.

GORDON DUFF: DEAR GERALDO RIVERA, 9/11 MURDER IS NOT A JOKE

BUILDINGWHAT.ORG IS ABOUT HONOR AND JUSTICE

This week, Geraldo Rivera was foiled in his attempt to “contain” the 9/11 movement, something exploding around the world. A Herald Sun poll in Australia the week before, 10,000 respondents, showed 78% support for 9/11 being an “inside job.” A reasonable estimate for Americans is likely to approach the same figure.

Fox News now “owns” 9/11 as much as they own Glen Beck. First, Judge Napolitano “outed” the phony investigation now Geraldo Rivera has taken a strong stand on the (www.buildingwhat.org) Building 7 demolition issue. If you put both shows together, they lead to the most frightening coverup in modern history and a clear evidentiary trail, one Fox News has exposed. Why, then, is the door opened and then closed again?

111 Obamacare Waivers And Counting – Can The Rest Of Us Get Waivers From Having To Comply With Obamacare Please?

So do you want to get an Obamacare waiver for your own company? Well, just over a week ago the Department of Health & Human Services published a set of new guidelines for those seeking to apply for a waiver. As news of these waivers starts to spread they will likely get absolutely swamped with applications, so you better get yours in early. In fact, it is being reported that the number of approved applications has tripled in just the last month alone.

Full Frontal Nudity Doesn’t Make Us Safer: Abolish the TSA

The Republicans control the House of Representatives and are bracing for a long battle over the President’s health care proposal. In the spirit of bipartisanship and sanity, I propose that the first thing on the chopping block should be an ineffective organization that wastes money, violates our rights, and encourages us to make decisions that imperil our safety. I’m talking about the Transportation Security Administration.

WAR CRIMES: ISRAELI GOVERNMENT DOCUMENTS SHOW DELIBERATE POLICY TO KEEP GAZANS AT NEAR-STARVATION LEVELS

Documents whose existence were denied by the Israeli government for over a year have been released after a legal battle led by Israeli human rights group Gisha. The documents reveal a deliberate policy by the Israeli government in which the dietary needs for the population of Gaza are chillingly calculated, and the amounts of food let in by the Israeli government measured to remain just enough to keep the population alive at a near-starvation level

Scanners: Abdulmutallab, Reid, Chertoff, that Nicely Dressed Indian Man and the Great Terror Lobby

The Chertoff Connection and ICTS

Everyone must understand that ICTS is the worst airport security company ever to have existed…. FACT. They were running the show at Schiphol that day, just as they were at Boston’s Logan on 11th of September 2001, and as well when Richard Reid boarded his flight at Charles de Gaulle. This is the security company made up of crack Israeli ex Shin Bet agents, expert in counter-terrorism, that has the worst airport security track record in history. Prior to the 3 biggest air-terrorist acts in recent history this company actually managed to TURN OFF all procedures just at the moment when the terrorists were passing security. Mohamed Atta managed to breeze through the magnetic detectors with his boxcutters without so much as a beep. Richard Reid had already been identified as a potential threat, yet was allowed to board his flight. Abdulmutallab had all the markings of a suicide bomber and even his own father had reported him two weeks before, and the scanners just happened to be switched off that day. Either this company is really, really unlucky or its Israeli owners had a side-line more profitable than its airport security racket.

George W. Bush can’t fight for freedom and authorise torture

It is not yet clear whether George W Bush is planning to cross the Atlantic to flog us his memoirs, but if I were his PR people I would urge caution. As book tours go, this one would be an absolute corker. It is not just that every European capital would be brought to a standstill, as book-signings turned into anti-war riots. The real trouble — from the Bush point of view — is that he might never see Texas again.
One moment he might be holding forth to a great perspiring tent at Hay-on-Wye. The next moment, click, some embarrassed member of the Welsh constabulary could walk on stage, place some handcuffs on the former leader of the Free World, and take him away to be charged.
Unless the 43rd president of the United States has been grievously misrepresented, he has admitted to authorizing and sponsoring the use of torture. Asked whether he approved of “waterboarding” in three specific cases, he told his interviewer that “damn right” he did, and that this practice had saved lives in America and Britain. It is hard to overstate the enormity of this admission.

WILL OBAMA JOIN LEAR IN THE STORM AND RAGE AGAINST ISRAELI INSOLENCE ?

Two lines in the fourth stanza of The Star Spangled Banner provide a clue to one American mindset that supports empire building.
By James M. Wall – - My Catbird Seat

“Then conquer we must, our cause it is just,
And this be our motto, “In God is our trust.”

Francis Scott Key included an important caveat in that couplet when he wrote, “when our cause it is just”. He did not write, “for our cause it is just”.

Wise leaders know the importance of the “justice” caveat when faced with the temptation to conquer others.

Unwise leaders create bogus causes to attack others. Three bogus causes that unwise leaders use to justify the urge to “conquer we must” are security of the homeland, fear, and xenophobia.

‘ROAD TO HOPE’ CONVOY TO GAZA MEMBERS KIDNAPPED

Greek Commandos board Strofades IV in Greek Waters

The Road to Hope humanitarian aid convoy left London on the 10th of October with £500,000 of medical aid for the besieged people of the Gaza Strip. After travelling 4,500 miles through the UK, France, Spain, Morocco, Algeria, Tunisia and Libya the convoy stalled at the Egyptian border on October 26th due to an Egyptian refusal to allow land access to Gaza. As a result the convoy leaders had little choice but to secure a ship at significant extra expense and delay.

The Self-Sacrifice of Real Truthseekers and Whistleblowers

Self-sacrifice is a good testimony of truthfulness.
- Roy Tov, The Cross of Bethlehem

A prominent whistleblower who has paid a huge price for his efforts for world peace is the Israeli Mordechai Vanunu, who converted to Christianity in the process. In 1986 Vanunu revealed evidence of Israel's secret nuclear weapons arsenal, an illegal program which was developed largely through the efforts of Shimon Peres. Guess which one received the Nobel Peace Prize?

Southern Poverty Law Center Compares Videotaping Police with Domestic Terrorism

The Southern Poverty Law Center has a long history of demonizing legitimate patriots. They have shown their utter hatred for the Constitution time and time again.

In their latest hit piece they have taken their propaganda to the new levels. Remember, the SPLC is actively working within the Department of Homeland Security, an agency created to take on the American people.

This nonsense is coming from the same group that declared eugenics a discredited psduo science while at the same time defending depopulation advocate Bill Gates! SPLC talking heads routinely appear on CNN to push the official line and declare citizens who speak out against the New World Order as terrorists.

Crash JPMorgan, Buy Silver Now – A Report

Basically, the Art of Deception is nothing new, especially in financial markets. Deception is fundamentally at the very heart of the American Financial System given that the Federal Reserve is not a federal institution but rather a syndicate of Global Banks – also known as the World Central Banks. Some would argue – the New World Order.

THE WORLDWIDE REVOLUTION IN ON

The following Videos are representative of the Worldwide Effort Underway NOW to Crash JPMorgan by taking PHYSICAL DELIVERY of ALL METALS. Silver which is traded via ETF (electronic traded funds), where reportedly, JPMorgan and others have been MASSIVELY Overselling Silver at a rate of 100 to 1. By demanding delivery, people are legally demanding their Silver to be delivered into their possession.

Doctors brace for possible 20%+ Medicare pay cuts

Breast cancer surgeon Kathryn Wagner has posted a warning in her waiting room about a different sort of risk to patients' health: She'll stop taking new Medicare cases if Congress allows looming cuts in doctors' pay to go through.

The scheduled cuts — the result of a failed system set up years ago to control costs — have raised alarms that real damage to Medicare could result if the lame-duck Congress winds up in a partisan standoff and fails to act by Dec. 1. That's when an initial 23 percent reduction would hit...

S 510 is hissing in the grass

S 510, the Food Safety Modernization Act*, may be the most dangerous bill in the history of the US. It is to our food what the bailout was to our economy, only we can live without money.

1. It puts all US food and all US farms under Homeland Security and the Department of Defense.

2. It would end US sovereignty over its own food supply by insisting on compliance with the WTO, thus threatening national security.

3. It would allow the government, under Maritime Law, to define the introduction of any food into commerce (even direct sales between individuals) as smuggling into “the United States.”

4. It imposes Codex Alimentarius on the US, a global system of control over food.

5. It would remove the right to clean, store and thus own seed in the US, putting control of seeds in the hands of Monsanto and other multinationals, threatening US security.

6. It includes NAIS, an animal traceability program that threatens all small farmers and ranchers raising animals.

7. It extends a failed and destructive HACCP to all food, thus threatening to do to all local food production and farming what HACCP did to meat production - put it in corporate hands and worsen food safety.

8. It deconstructs what is left of the American economy.

9. It would allow the government to mandate antibiotics, hormones, slaughterhouse waste, pesticides and GMOs.

10. It uses food crimes as the entry into police state power and control.

McDonald's and PepsiCo to help write UK health policy

The Department of Health is putting the fast food companies McDonald's and KFC and processed food and drink manufacturers such as PepsiCo, Kellogg's, Unilever, Mars and Diageo at the heart of writing government policy on obesity, alcohol and diet-related disease, the Guardian has learned.

In an overhaul of public health, said by campaign groups to be the equivalent of handing smoking policy over to the tobacco industry, health secretary Andrew Lansley has set up five "responsibility deal" networks with business, co-chaired by ministers, to come up with policies.

"Because [of] the bad attitude -- you know?" replied the thug. "If they are acting like they are good, [then] we are the bad one. Then, you must show them control."

You must show them control.

Big Cheese vs. Real Cheese: USDA’s bailout of processed cheese belies its eat-less-cheese campaign

As shocking as the news is that the United States Department of Agriculture facilitated a cheese bailout with a $12 million marketing campaign to help sell Domino’s Pizza, I believe there is much more to the New York Times story as it affects average Americans and their ever-expanding waist lines.

The story makes a strong case for the correlation between saturated fat consumption and obesity. Michael Moss nails the issue of the USDA’s two-sided policy: promoting cheese consumption in the form of Domino’s Pizza, while simultaneously working to fight obesity by discouraging some of these very same foods.

But as I see it, cheese in itself is not the problem—the issues are deeper and more complex than that.

Apartheid is a crime against humanity. Israel has deprived millions of Palestinians of their liberty and property. It has perpetuated a system of gross racial discrimination and inequality. It has systematically

particular, waged a war against a civilian population, in particular children.”Nelson Mandela

Geraldo Rivera, who in the past labeled 9/11 truthers as nutcases, seems to have got the message. Not only did Rivera give air time to two people on the front lines of the 9/11 Truth movement, he has aired Larry Silverstein telling the world that they had to, “pull it.”

How to beat the TSA screening...I did it today.

Really simple. Stand in line behind the hottest women you can find...they will always get pulled and you get to move to the metal detector. I did this yesterday at PVD. Saw two gorgeous 20yr olds, so I moved into there line. Both of them were complaining to each other that they thought it was strange they always have to go thru them - and like clockwork they got pulled - had to strip down to their tshirts...and went in the machine...since that was busy they directed me without a thought to the metal detectors. I've been watching this on FB & thought it was much to do about nothing -I was wrong Reddit & I apologize...this whole TSA thing is complete bullshit.
