Wright Patman’s Prescription for Healing the Cancerous U.S. Banking System

Forty five years ago in 1964, Wright Patman had answers and solutions for our banking problems which he left for us in his Congressional Reports, in transcripts of Congressional Hearings, and in his speeches in the Congressional Record.

THE BAGHDAD CATHEDRAL MASSACRE: ZIONIST FINGERPRINTS ALL OVER

The shadowy assailants that stormed the Sayedat al-Najat Cathedral and perpetrated the massacre weren’t dressed as private military contractors and actually were private military contractors, employed by one of the agencies aforementioned; or the massacre was the sinister work of Mossad.

Dividing Iraq via partition and driving it into a hell of ethnic cleansing was a Zionist plot that was originally designed in 1982 by Israeli foreign policy advisor Oded Yinon (1). The policies for destabilizing Iraq were reestablished in the ‘Clean Break’ papers written for mass murderer Benjamin Netanyahu by Zionist spy Richard Perle and several Zionist war criminals

Fraudclosure Hearing, Day II

It is important to emphasize that junk fees on homeowners ultimately come out of the pocket of MBS investors. If the homeowner lacks sufficient equity in the property to cover the amount owed on the loan, including junk fees, then there is a deficiency from the foreclosure sale. As many mortgages are legally or functionally non-recourse, this means that the deficiency cannot be collected from the homeowner’s other assets. Mortgage servicers recover their expenses off the top in foreclosure sales, before MBS investors are paid. Therefore, when a servicer lards on illegal fees in a foreclosure, it is stealing from investors such as pension plans and the US government.

So much for "they're deadbeats and deserve it" as an argument.

Fraud Factories: Rep. Alan Grayson Explains the Foreclosure Fraud Crisis

John F. Kennedy vs The Federal Reserve

Some people think the Federal Reserve Banks are United States Government institutions. They are not Government institutions, departments, or agencies. They are private credit monopolies which prey upon the people of the United States for the benefit of themselves and their foreign customers. Those 12 private credit monopolies were deceitfully placed upon this country by bankers who came here from Europe and who repaid us for our hospitality by undermining our American institutions.

The FED basically works like this: The government granted its power to create money to the FED banks. They create money, then loan it back to the government charging interest. The government levies income taxes to pay the interest on the debt. On this point, it's interesting to note that the Federal Reserve Act and the sixteenth amendment, which gave congress the power to collect income taxes, were both passed in 1913. The incredible power of the FED over the economy is universally admitted. Some people, especially in the banking and academic communities, even support it. On the other hand, there are those, such as President John Fitzgerald Kennedy, that have spoken out against it. His efforts were spoken about in Jim Marrs' 1990 book Crossfire:"

Another overlooked aspect of Kennedy's attempt to reform American society involves money. Kennedy apparently reasoned that by returning to the constitution, which states that only Congress shall coin and regulate money, the soaring national debt could be reduced by not paying interest to the bankers of the Federal Reserve System, who print paper money then loan it to the government at interest. He moved in this area on June 4, 1963, by signing Executive Order 11110 which called for the issuance of $4,292,893,815 in United States Notes through the U.S. Treasury rather than the traditional Federal Reserve System. That same day, Kennedy signed a bill changing the backing of one and two dollar bills from silver to gold, adding strength to the weakened U.S. currency.

White House sees opportunity for immigration reform in lame-duck Congress

White House sees opportunity for immigration reform in lame-duck Congress
By Brian Bennett and Lisa Mascaro, Tribune Washington Bureau
November 18, 2010|5:57 p.m.
The White House and congressional Democrats are pushing to bring to a vote a bill that creates a path to legal status for young illegal immigrants, seeking to win support from moderate Republicans in the lame-duck session before a more conservative GOP contingent arrives in January.
The proposed Dream Act would use fines, education or military service to allow some of the nation's 2.1 million illegal immigrants younger than 35 to legally remain in the country.

Greek rescue frays as Irish crisis drags on

http://www.telegraph.co.uk/finance/economics/8138739/Greek-rescue-fray...

The eurozone bail-out for Greece has begun to unravel after Austria suspended aid contributions over failure to comply with the rescue terms, and Germany warned Athens that its patience was running out.

The clash caught markets off-guard and heightened fears that Europe's debt crisis may be escalating, with deep confusion over the Irish crisis as Dublin continues to resist EU pressure to request its own rescue.

Olli Rehn, the EU economics commissioner, said escalating rhetoric in Europe was turning dangerous. "I want to call on every responsible European to resist the centrifugal tendencies and existential alarmism."

The horrible truth starts to dawn on Europe's leaders

http://blogs.telegraph.co.uk/finance/ambroseevans-pritchard/100008667/...

The entire European Project is now at risk of disintegration, with strategic and economic consequences that are very hard to predict.

In a speech this morning, EU President Herman Van Rompuy (poet, and writer of Japanese and Latin verse) warned that if Europe’s leaders mishandle the current crisis and allow the eurozone to break up, they will destroy the European Union itself.

“We’re in a survival crisis. We all have to work together in order to survive with the euro zone, because if we don’t survive with the euro zone we will not survive with the European Union,” he said.

Europe stumbles blindly towards its 1931 moment

Unless the ECB takes fast and dramatic action, it risks destroying the currency it is paid to manage, and allowing a political catastrophe to unfold in Europe.

If mishandled, Ireland could all too easily become a sovereign version of Credit Anstalt - the Austrian bank that brought down the central European financial system in 1931, sent tremors through London and New York, and set off the second deeper phase of the Great Depression, the phase when politics turned ugly.

Israel and the anti-Muslim blow-up

"The sermon was a nutty affair that tearfully made the transition from intifada to Holocaust and back again.

I remember thinking, 'this guy is actually blaming the Palestinians for the suffering of his parents during the Holocaust.' I thought I had missed something because it was so ridiculous.

Then came the sermon's ending which was unforgettable. The rabbi concluded with the words from Ecclesiastes.

'To everything there is a season. A time to be born, and a time to die; a time to plant, a time to reap ... A time to weep, and a time to laugh; a time to mourn, and a time to dance...'

He then looked up and said: 'Now is the time to hate.'

PHILIP GIRALDI: LIAR, LIAR

Rep. Eric Cantor recently met privately with Bibi Netanyahu and said the Republican Party would serve “as a check on” the Obama Administration over its policies in the Middle East. In other words, Cantor was meeting with the leader of a foreign country and promising to do whatever he could to influence and even subvert the foreign policy of his own country.

Airport security: Scanner images will reverberate across the world

The holy grail has been to simplify the process and this is why body scanners are seen as the future of airport security.

But critics have said their use amounts to a virtual strip search and reassurances that this was not the case now appear pretty hollow.

In Britain the Government has tried to defuse the row by putting in a number of safeguards already, including the requirement that the person viewing the scans cannot see the passengers themselves.

Even tougher privacy protection is promised. But the danger is that the disclosures from America will see public confidence evaporate in the whole scanner programme.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

It is apparent that, for the writer of this article, research and facts are definitely not his strong suite. He moans over the potential disruption of a system which, at the end of the day, makes no one flying any safer.

1. The back scatter xray body scanners will, statistically, cause cancer in both passengers and all ground security crews exposed to this radiation.

http://www.nationalpost.com/news/Naked+scanners+airports+dangerous+scientists/3819955/story.html

“No exposure to X-ray is considered beneficial. We know X-rays are hazardous but we have a situation at the airports where people are so eager to fly that they will risk their lives in this manner,” he said.

"The Transportation Security Administration (TSA) began rolling out full-body scanners at U.S. airports in 2007, but stepped up deployment of the devices this year when stimulus funding made it possible to buy another 450 of the advanced imaging" technology scanners.

3, In the US, the use of these scanners is two-fold:

A. To create a boatload of cash to all companies selling these machines and for their investors.

B. To punish those who opt out because they understand that the radiation is very dangerous.

4. Unlike the UK,which has no formal constitution, the US has a formal Constitution and Bill of Rights.

As reported at: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Fourth_Amendment_to_the_United_States_Constitution

"The Fourth Amendment (Amendment IV) to the United States Constitution is the part of the Bill of Rights which guards against unreasonable searches and seizures. The amendment specifically also requires search and arrest warrants be judicially sanctioned and supported by probable cause. It was adopted as a response to the abuse of the writ of assistance, which is a type of general search warrant, in the American Revolution. Search and arrest should be limited in scope according to specific information supplied to the issuing court, usually by a law enforcement officer, who has sworn by it."

5. Therefore under US law, the use body scanners and patdowns is constitutionally forbidden.
Of course, the US government abiding strictly by the law would be a wonderfully refreshing thing to see!

'Food Safety' Bill Reaching Congressional Conclusion

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.

This law would also give the U.S. government the power to arrest any backyard food producer as a felon (a "smuggler") for merely growing lettuce and selling it at a local farmer's market.

Survey: 1 in 5 U.S. Adults Face Mental Illness

The government says 1 in 5 American adults suffered from mental illness during the past year. Most didn't receive treatment.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

What concerns me is how rationally justified anger at a Federal government has now been classified as a disease.

As reported on 15 November, 2010 at:

http://www.networkworld.com/community/blog/people-who-resist-authority-stand-privacy-cou

"People Who Resist Authority, Stand Up for Privacy, Could Be Classified As Mentally Ill"

"According to the Diagnostic and Statistical Manual of Mental Disorders (DSM), which is published by the American Psychiatric Association, nonconformity and freethinking is a mental illness labeled "oppositional defiant disorder" or ODD. If psychiatrists follow the Fourth Edition of DSM diagnosis guidelines, people who stand up for privacy and freedom might be labeled as mentally ill.

U.S.G.W.O. reports that it has confirmed "basically that anyone who disobeys authority or even questions authority is now considered mentally ill and can be thrown in a prison-like mental institution under tax payers dollars." I haven't read the entire book, but U.S.G.W.O. states that according to the psychiatric manual the following people would be diagnosed as having ODD:

* Freethinkers
* Constitutionalists
* Oath Keepers
* Nonconformists
* Peaceful Activists
* Peaceful Resistors
* Those who partake in Civil Disobedience
* Those that question Authority
* Highly creative artists"

YIKES: I'M 8 OUT OF 9 ON THIS LIST!! :-)

If this doesn't put a chill down the back of your spines, I don't know what will!

Bill would expose TSA screeners to laws prohibiting sexual assault

Ron Paul, a Republican congressman from Texas, introduced the American Traveler Dignity Act to the House on Wednesday in response to a growing controversy surrounding the use of body scanners and "enhanced" pat-downs being used by the Transportation Security Agency (TSA) at airports.

The bill, HR 6416, would remove legal immunity from federal employees who subject an individual to any physical contact, x-rays, or aids in the creation of any part of a individual's body as a condition to travel in an aircraft.

End of Free Internet: US Senate Committee Approves Internet "Blacklist" Bill

Activist Post

It seems the lame duck Congressional session is becoming anything but unproductive. Yesterday, we saw the cloture of the Food Safety Modernization Act (S. 510), and today the Combating Online Infringement and Counterfeits Act was unanimously approved by the US Senate Judiciary Committee Thursday with a 19-0 vote. The COICA has been overwhelmingly viewed as a corporate hijacking of the internet by mega-media cartels. Indeed, it is the end of the free internet as we now it.

Secure in Our Persons
November 15th, 2010
“The right of the people to be secure in their persons, houses, papers, and effects, against unreasonable searches and seizures, shall not be violated…” – United States Constitution, 4th Amendment.
In the aftermath of 9/11, the U.S. federal government nationalized our transportation security system and established the Transportation Security Administration (TSA).. . There was an important legal change, however,...TSA screeners and screening procedures must now adhere to Constitutional limits on government authority. Airport screeners are not private entities representing private companies anymore; they are government agents that answer to you and me.

Fault found in Rockies could cause major quake

SALMON, Idaho – Scientists at Idaho State University have mapped a previously unknown and active seismic fault in the northern Rockies capable of unleashing an earthquake with a magnitude as high as 7.5.

The newly discovered fault in central Idaho does not lie in a densely populated area.

But Glenn Thackray, chairman of the university's geosciences department, said the 40-mile-long fracture in the Earth's crust at the base of the Sawtooth Mountains near the tiny mountain town of Stanley is cause for some concern.

Israelis insist they have US backing to build in East Jerusalem

Israel yesterday insisted it would keep building homes in the disputed East Jerusalem area, threatening to stall a US-proposed building moratorium aimed at reviving peace efforts.

Despite Washington having agreed to exclude the eastern part of the city from the 90-day moratorium, according to Israeli officials, it had still not sent a detailed letter on the understanding. Palestinians want building to halt in the West Bank and in Jerusalem, which they claim as their state. The US hopes a renewed moratorium will let Israel and the Palestinians work towards a deal on their future borders.

Native American link to Europe revealed in Icelandic DNA

A team of European researchers says the discovery of what appears to be a strain of First Nations DNA among a small group of Icelanders — which the scientists have linked to Viking voyages to Canada about 1,000 years ago — may represent the survival, at least genetically, of the Beothuk, victims of Canadian history's most tragic cultural extinction.

ARE TERRORISTS SUPPLYING OUR AIRPORT SCANNERS?

Two very dubious terror attacks, both seriously discredited, have provided the impetus for 70 American airports to buy scanners. The two attacks trace down to Yemen and an Al Qaeda cell that the government there has openly accused the State of Israel as funding and managing.

Why I Couldn't Pilot An Airplane After A TSA Pat-Down

Well, I beeped [in the metal detector], was offered the scanner and opted out instead to endure the pat down. I requested a private screening with the Captain as my witness (you always have the right to a witness.) They started in my shirt collar, went inside my pants waistband all the way around, up inside my crotch and squeezed around from the front each side and up the backside both sides. I was groped 4 times total! Next they rubbed my whole body down with a full palm pressure...including my buttocks and the front groin one inch either side of my fly. I exited without saying anything, the captain and myself just hanging our heads in shame. This is a new breed of LOW that I never thought I would allow…EVER.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

This has got to stop, period, end of discussion.

It is simply punishment for those armed with the knowledge that the full body scanners will cause cancer.

Congress Back To Censoring Internet

Now that the elections are over, Congress can get back to the job of censoring the internet.

Simply put, the COICA allows the government to keep “blacklists” of websites the government, in its sole discretion, decides are “dedicated to infringing activities.” The COICA does not require any hearing or judicial review, just “BAM” your website is gone. Not just the allegedly infringing material, not just the webpage upon which it appears, your entire website.

Friendly skies? How much more will travelers endure when it comes to invasive ‘security theater’

The relative, who said she didn’t want to be identified, said her flight from Corpus Christi to a city in the Midwest was fine. It was the enhanced pat-down in a side room that really set her off to crying. This was done after she declined to go through the radiation-emitting naked body scanner. She said it was awful and invasive and something that has made her think that traveling via commercial airliners is a thing of the past for her.

It should be noted that this is the same Texas airport where a woman noted that in 2008 she was singled out for ‘extended search procedures.’ In the process her blouse was lowered and breasts were exposed. This resulted in much high-fiving and whoopin’ n’ hollerin’ among the half-witted, boorish vulgarians among Corpus Christi airport’s TSA staff.

The reputable Israeli daily Ha’aretz reported that by the last week of October 2001, some six weeks after the men had been detained, Deputy Secretary of State Richard Armitage and two unidentified “prominent New York congressmen” were lobbying heavily for their release. According to a source at ABC News close to the 20/20 report, high-profile criminal lawyer Alan Dershowitz also stepped in as a negotiator on behalf of the men to smooth out differences with the U.S. government.

Man arrested after punching TSA screener in Indy

Webmaster's Commentary: 

I am getting emails wondering if the US Government isn't using this TSA groping thing to trigger an uprising of the American people to justify a gun grab or martial law. If true, I wonder how TSA workers feel about being set up as target practice for the next staged phony terror attack. Grateful not to have to worry about an old age riddled with cancer from those machines, I guess.

But here is something for all those government spooks (about 60 of them from the last poll) reading this site. I know you are all relying on the results from the Combat Arms Survey of 1994, which concluded that US Marines would follow orders to fire on their fellow Americans to enforce a national gun seizure. Well, here is a little insight. One of those Marines who took that survey out at 29 Palms later came to work for us as a Graphics Designer, and he told us the Marines answered affirmatively because it was clear that is what the officers wanted them to answer, to prove how effective the training had been. But in reality, the Marines taking the combat arms survey knew they were lying.

So, if you are part of a plan to trigger a revolt, so the government can justify acting really butch, please keep in mind that the basis for assuming the unquestioning support of the Marines is no more based in reality than Margaret Mead's "Coming of Age in Samoa", and is being peddled by the same government that assured you Saddam had nuclear weapons.

In short, you might just start something you cannot really stop.

TSA boss: New pat-downs are more invasive

The head of the Transportation Security Administration is acknowledging that the new pat-downs are more invasive than what travelers were used to in the past.

TSA administrator John Pistole says he has received the new pat-down, as has his boss, Homeland Security Secretary Janet Napolitano.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Oh, really, Napolitano got "the patdown?!?"

Were her breasts exposed in public?

http://amarillo.com/news/local-news/...earch-indecent

"An Amarillo woman is suing the federal government for intentional infliction of emotional distress after Transportation Security Administration agents allegedly humiliated the woman when her breasts were publicly exposed during an "extended search" two years ago at a Corpus Christi airport."

Was Napalitano's genitalia groped?

http://www.prisonplanet.com/sexual-assault-tsa-goon-gropes-womans-vagina.html

"I stood there, an American citizen, a mom traveling with a baby with special needs formula, sexually assaulted by a government official. I began shaking and felt completely violated, abused and assaulted by the TSA agent. I shook for several hours, and woke up the next day shaking.

Here is why I was sexually assaulted. She never told me the new body search policy. She never told me that she was going to touch my private parts. She never told me when or where she was going to touch me. She did not inform me that a private screening was available. She did not inform me of my rights that were a part of these new enhanced patdown procedures."

Were I a betting person, I would bet that neither of these kinds of incidents took place when Napolitano got her patdown.

What these "enhanced patdowns" are supposed to accomplish,are primarily, two-fold:

1. Making a boatload of cash for the providers of the xray body scanning equipment, which may give people cancer, and

http://publicintelligence.net/scientists-say-body-scanners-will-likely-cause-cancer/

2. Punishing those who will not go through the body scanners because they understand that the radiation is hazardous to their health.

British Defense Chief: 30 to 40 Years of Afghanistan Occupation Ahead

The foreign policy bait-and-switch continues. First, President Barack Obama declared the end of combat in Iraq, withdrawing some U.S. troops but leaving many others behind, possibly for decades, and redefining their role as “advise and assist” — whereupon they continued engaging in combat. Now, with Obama having publicly stated his intent to begin withdrawing troops from Afghanistan next July, both Defense Secretary Robert Gates and Gen. David Petraeus are arguing for a long-term, if not permanent, U.S. presence in Afghanistan.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Continuing to pursue what does not work and has not worked is one of the classic signs of insanity.

Illness Plagues Gulf Residents in BP’s Aftermath

ORANGE BEACH, Alabama, Nov 15, 2010 (IPS) – Increasing numbers of U.S. Gulf Coast residents attribute ongoing sicknesses to BP’s oil disaster and use of toxic dispersants.

“Now I have a bruising rash all around my stomach,” Denise Rednour of Long Beach, Mississippi told IPS. “This looks like bleeding under the skin.”

Rednour lives near the coast and has been walking on the beach nearly every day since a BP oil rig exploded on Apr. 20. She has noticed a dramatically lower number of wildlife, and said that many days the smell of chemicals from what she believes are BP’s toxic dispersants fill the air.

Yet her primary concern is that she and many people she knows in the area have gotten sick.

Top US, Israeli Military Leaders Meet Amid Iran Controversy

The top U.S. and Israeli military officers met Wednesday amid some disagreement among senior leaders of the two countries on how best to pressure Iran to abandon its alleged nuclear weapons program. The Chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff, Admiral Mike Mullen, hosted his Israeli counterpart, General Gabi Ashkenazi at the Pentagon.

On Tuesday at the Pentagon, Netanyahu's military chief, General Ashkenazi, agreed that the sanctions are having an impact, but questioned whether that will be enough.

Admiral Mullen said he has no doubt Iran is trying to develop a nuclear weapon, and said that would be a "disaster for the region," and an "incredibly destabilizing" development.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Memo to Israeli Defense Minister Ashkenzi and US Joint Chiefs of Staff Mullen: if this is what you gentlemen believe, with utterly no hard evidence to support your claims, then why not just sack the IAEA, under whose protocols and inspections Iran, an NNPT signatory, is developing its nuclear power plant?!?

Because, gentlemen, to date:

1. There has been no evidence the IAEA has presented of any nuclear material missing or unaccounted for.

2. The Iranians are developing uranium only to a 20% enrichment for medical isotopes. As you both well know, it takes a minimum 95% enrichment of uranium to create a nuclear bomb.

3. To date, the IAEA has not reported any hard evidence of Iran attempting to develop a nuclear weapons program at this time.

So if the above 3 statements are true, why are you even seriously discussing a military attack against Iran?

The reason there is even a discussion of such an attack is very simple; even without its nuclear energy program, Iran has been characterized as Israel's "existential threat" in the region, and one that should (as was the case with Iraq) be "neutralized" by an American attack against it, with Americans paying the cost in blood and money such an attack would require.

There is a potential nightmare scenario here, and one that rarely gets mentioned in the corporate media: if there is an attack against Iran by the US (and/or Israel), what will Russia and China do?!?

A regional war could well become a world war, with Russia and China coming in on the side of Iran, and both of those nations have nuclear weapons.

A MODEST PROPOSAL FOR THE MIDDLE EAST PEACE TALKS

By Stephen M. Walt

Here’s the rub: given the power of the Israel lobby, it’s unrealistic to think that the Obama administration would be able to put any overt pressure on Israel. Congress will make sure that Israel gets its annual aid package, and die-hard defenders like Representative Eric Cantor (R-Va) will make it impossible for Obama to use the leverage that is potentially at his disposal. And as noted above, those same forces will make sure that the United States continues veto any unfavorable resolutions in the U.N. Security Council and deflects international efforts to raise question about Israel’s nuclear program.

So what’s a president to do?

Survey: US worst again in healthcare

The study carried out by the New York-based Commonwealth Fund shows that at least a third of Americans have gone without medical care or skipped filling a prescription during 2010 because of costs.

The data is compared to as few as one in 20 in the Netherlands and Britain.

The study published in the Health Affairs journal on Thursday also indicates that while Americans pay far more per capita for healthcare, they are unhappier with the results and less healthy than people in other rich countries.

The research adds that US adults are most likely to have trouble paying medical bills even when insured.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

The health care legislation passed is an absolute Frankenstein's monster, particularly the part about the IRS being in control of Americans' health care:

http://www.washingtontimes.com/news/2010/jan/12/irs-to-control-your-health-care/

What it will do is enhance cost, not care, and have the number of people not going to their doctors at all increase dramatically.

And for everyone who screams "socialistic" or "communistic" at any country which manages to have a working healthcare system, please stop screaming, and look logically at the very capitalistic Swiss model.

All Swiss citizens are required to buy health insurance; however, the insurance companies make their money by selling more elaborate policies to those who can afford them. The medical care is matched to the medical need. In other words, the person with a sprained thumb is not going to be met at the door by several orthopedic surgeons. No one gets turned away, people get they care they need, and go on with their lives not having to get a loan to pay their medical bills.

What's wrong with this picture?!? Absolutely nothing!!

Woman Sues Debt Collectors Over Alleged Facebook Harassment

A Florida woman who fell behind on her car payments is suing the company she claims has been using Facebook to contact her family members in a campaign to embarrass and intimidate her into paying the debt.

When Melanie Beacham of St. Petersburg had to take a medical leave of absence from her job this summer, she alerted the company, Mark One Financial, that she would likely fall behind on her monthly $362 car payments, her attorney told The Huffington Post. Two months later, the attorney said, Mark One representatives began calling Beacham up to 20 times a day and contacting her cousin and sister on Facebook.

Guantánamo detainee Ahmed Khalfan Ghailani cleared of 284 terror charges

Barack Obama's plans to try accused terrorists in civilian courts experienced a major setback last night when the first former Guantánamo detainee to be tried in one was convicted on just one of 285 charges over the 1998 attack on US embassies in East Africa which killed 224 people.

Ahmed Khalfan Ghailani, a 36-year-old Tanzanian, was found guilty of conspiracy to destroy US government buildings and property for helping an al-Qaida cell to buy a lorry and bomb parts in the attacks on the American embassies in Kenya and Dar-es-Salaam. But a US federal jury acquitted him of all the more serious charges of murder and conspiracy.

Banksters Move to Gut Aspects of Financial Reform Bill

Now that the game of political musical chairs is over and Republicans will control the House next year, the banksters are busy at work whittling away at provisions contained in the financial regulation bill pushed through Congress earlier this year by the Democrats. As should be expected, the corporate media is mostly mum, although McClatchy ran with a story.

“Lobbyists for Big Finance are working hardest to neutralize the so-called Volcker Rule, which would force big banks to spin off their lucrative proprietary trading operations, in which they invest their own capital in speculative deals,” Kevin G. Hall writes for McClatchy Newspapers.

US panel lashes out at China

n a much-anticipated report, the US-China Economic and Security Review commission has accused Beijing of deceptive economic practises, effectively reigniting the two countries' spat over currency and trade issues.

Presenting its findings to the US Congress, the congressional advisory panel has recommended the Obama administration to take tougher actions against what it calls China's policy of keeping its currency undervalued.

On Wednesday, the commission said that China is creating global imbalances and using "market access-limiting practises" that fall outside its World Trade Organisation commitments.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

This a petulant President's revenge for not getting what he wanted out of the G20 conference.

China is not to blame for the US's financial woes: our current domestic, foreign, and banking policies have brought us to the place we are now.

China has an enviable surplus: the US government may well collapse, choking under the weight its own deficit.

Jobs have been allowed by this government to be offshored, creating a huge unemployment problem in this country.

Those people who, legitimately, qualified for a mortgage when they got it, but are now without work, cannot keep up the payments, so houses are foreclosed on, and these people are now both jobless and homeless.

You have a situation where he banks have deliberately oversold those mortgages to the point where no one really knows exactly who holds the title.

Obama has continued an endless cycle of costly wars, with the situations in Afghanistan and Iraq going horrendously badly; yet, we are also at war in Pakistan, and soon, Yemen.

The only people actually "winning" in these situations are the defense contractors, who provide mercenaries, supplies and logistics, and the drug lords.

Did the Chinese government do anything to cause any of the above to happen?!? Not at all.

The US government is desperately attempting to deflect blame from the fact that it is US governmental policies which have wreaked havoc on the lives of the American people, not the Chinese government.

China Telecom rejects US hijack claims

A leading Chinese telecommunication company has rejected the US claims implicating the firm for some temporary redirecting of sensitive Internet traffic on US websites.

China Telecom, one of the country's major telecommunications operators, rejected US claims that its servers "hijacked" highly sensitive Internet traffic for 18 minutes on April 8 on American government and military websites, AFP reported on Thursday.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

More gratuitous China-bashing and rather lame since there is no reason for such sensitive US traffic to even leave the US networks let alone route through Chinese servers. Since the "great revolt" that transformed the ARPAnet into the Internet, the military has set up a parallel network of their own, which for obvious reasons is not connected to the global internet. So this story was a non-starter, to begin with

Israel US Settlement Freeze Deal Waits On U.S. Document

Israel insisted Thursday it would keep building homes in disputed east Jerusalem, threatening to hold up a U.S.-proposed settlement construction moratorium designed to renew deadlocked Mideast peacemaking.

Washington, they said, had agreed to exclude the eastern sector of the holy city from the 90-day moratorium and there would be no further demands for construction curbs in the West Bank when the latest moratorium expired.

To entice the Israelis to sign on to the deal, the U.S. has proposed a package of incentives including a gift of 20 next-generation stealth fighter planes and U.S. pledges to veto anti-Israel resolutions at the United Nations, Israeli officials have said.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Should this deal go through, it will bring Israel and the Palestinians no closer to a true peace deal than when it started: the only thing it is guaranteed to do is to make
We the Taxpayers (whose forced largesse makes such a deal possible) poorer by the costs of these 20 stealth fighter planes.

No Plans In Senate For A Vote On Unemployment Benefits

Congress has until the end of the month to reauthorize federally-funded unemployment benefits currently supporting five million long-term jobless (practically, they have just until Friday because of a Thanksgiving break next week). If the federal benefits are allowed to lapse, waves of people will prematurely stop receiving them, with two million people facing a cutoff by the end of the year.

"The unemployed in this country face a grim holiday season if we don't act quickly," said Rep. Jim McDermott (D-Wash.), who co-introduced the bill with House Ways and Means Chairman Sander Levin (D-Mich.). "In 75 years we have never cut federal unemployment benefits when the unemployment rate has been this high."

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Were I a betting person, I would not necessarily bet that these benefits will be extended.

After all, these unemployed (many of whom have had their jobs offshored) aren't the big corporations which have acquired most of those in Congress, so this unemployed portion of the electorate doesn't count.

Congress, apparently, feels that they are sufficiently insulated from any blowback (read: "civil unrest") from the consequences of a decision to not to extend benefits.

But I would almost be willing to bet on one thing; that the funding for these illegal and immoral wars of conquest will not only not be cut, but will also be expanded.

Professor who downplayed oil spill has federal government contracts

Professor Emeritus of Environmental Science at Louisiana State University, Overton, who has been criticized for downplaying the effects of the worst offshore oil spill in history, has also headed the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration’s chemical hazard assessment team for over 25 years.

Yet in nearly every media appearance, and even during congressional testimony, Overton, an environmental chemist, has omitted this long-term, high-level contracting position for the federal government through LSU, a Raw Story investigation has found.

Obama's Bribe: Palestinians will be the Losers – Again

Barack Obama dangles a lavish package of incentives in the face of Benjamin Netanyahu in an attempt to lure the Israeli prime minister into renewing a three-month, partial freeze on Jewish settlement construction in the West Bank. The generosity of the US president's package, which includes 20 combat aircraft worth $3 billion and backing for Israel's continued military presence in the Jordan Valley after the declaration of a Palestinian state, has prompted even Thomas Friedman of The New York Times to compare it to a “bribe”.

Eric Cantor and the Provoking of American Antisemitism

On Wednesday, November 10th Israeli Prime Minister Netanyahu was in Washington DC for a meeting with Secretary of State Hilary Clinton. But Cantor got to Netanyahu first and, according to the Congressman's boastful press release, he "stressed that the new Republican majority will serve as a check on the [Obama] Administration ….He [Cantor] 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."

How do we translate this? Essentially what Cantor did was tell the leader 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.

Leaving aside the thorny question of whose interests are being "protected" here, the Post tells us that unnamed administration lawyers are "uncertain about the legality of offensive operations."

Coming from a government that's incorporated the worst features of the previous regime into their repertoire, that's rather rich.

So if you doubt that the United States is tied hand and foot to Israel in terms of its ability to take independent action in the Middle East, just listen to what Dennis Ross, Joe Biden, and Eric Cantor are saying. Does it sound like they are articulating policies beneficial to the US? They are insisting that Americans have to support Israel unquestioningly no matter what it does and are little more than advocates for monsters like Bibi Netanyahu, pure and simple. The word Quisling comes to mind when one thinks of them and also Hoyer and Ros-Lehtinen. If their failure to be truly loyal to the country that has nurtured them brings about a new war in which many of their fellow citizens will die, their actions and posturing should be defined by one and all as treason.

Reply to Quantitative Easing Explained

"Taxes might have to average 50% to service the interest on the national debt."

In FY2010, 46% of federal income tax receipts went to pay the interest ($414B) on the federal debt. In our unconstitutional privatized monetary and banking system, private banks create money in exchange for debt, and then charge interest. It is the interest that makes the system unsustainable. Sovereign governments should have the sole prerogative to create our money and to create it debt and interest free (as Canada did up from 1930s-1970s, and as Lincoln did with the Greenbacks as an alternative to than borrowing from the European bankers at 36% interest).

By buying back interest-bearing bonds, the Fed is reducing the interest burden of the tax payer, since the Fed's profits are mostly rebated to the Treasury.
