Central Banking: A Blight On Humanity

The unexpected immediate demand for substantial tonnage of gold bullion created utter panic in at least two banks who were counterparties to this trade – J.P. Morgan Chase and Deutsche Bank – because they simply did not posses the gold bullion which they had sold short [an illegal act which in trading parlance is referred to as a “naked short”].

He Got the WHAT Prize?

The Nobel Prizes - and especially the ‘peace’ prize - have always confounded me anyway since they are all based on profits left over from the guy (Alfred Nobel) who invented dynamite and gelignite. So pardon the political incorrectness of this, but as I see it, naming something a ‘peace prize’ and funding it with dynamite profits is - how do you say this? - a kind of blood money deal by my standards…

Urgent lawsuit filed against FDA to halt swine flu vaccines; claims FDA violated federal law

Health freedom attorney Jim Turner is filing a lawsuit in Washington D.C. mid-day Friday in an urgent effort to halt the distribution of the swine flu vaccine in America. On behalf of plaintiffs Dr. Gary Null and other licensed health care workers of New York State, the lawsuit charges that the FDA violated the law in its hasty approval of four swine flu vaccines by failing to scientifically determine neither the safety nor efficacy of the vaccines.

"The suit will seek an injunction against the FDA from approving the vaccine," attorney Jim Turner told NaturalNews on Thursday evening's Natural News Talk Hour show. "And the core of the argument is that they have not done the proper safety and efficacy tests on the vaccine to allow it to be release at this time."

Palestinians Urged to Defend Al-Aqsa as Israeli Police on Alert

Several hundred Palestinians who were denied entry to the mosque performed Friday prayers just outside the gates of the Old City under the watchful eye of heavily armed Israeli occupation police.

Israeli occupation security forces set checkpoints around and within the Old City and were seen turning back Palestinians who do not live or work there. However, they were allowing in tourists and Israelis wanting to pray at the Western Wall - also known as the Wailing Wall - just below the mosque compound.

Palestinian president Mahmud Abbas's secular Fatah party called the strike "to peacefully protest and to proclaim the attachment of the Palestinian people to their holy places and to Jerusalem as the eternal capital of the independent Palestinian state."

'You've got blood on your hands': Father of dead soldier refuses to shake Blair's hand after memorial to Britain's fallen heroes

A father’s grief and anger boiled over yesterday when he came face to face with the man he blames for his son’s death.

Tony Blair offered his hand to Peter Brierley during a reception following a service at St Paul’s to commemorate the dead of the Iraq war.

‘Don’t you dare,’ roared Mr Brierley. ‘You have my son’s blood on your hands.’

Three of the former Prime Minister’s bodyguards sprang into action, ushering away a visibly shocked Mr Blair, who had earlier been criticised during the service by the Archbishop of Canterbury.

But 59-year-old Mr Brierley, whose son Shaun died in the run-up to Iraq, was not finished.

He told the Daily Mail: ‘As far as I am concerned that man is a war criminal.'

What happened to global warming?

This headline may come as a bit of a surprise, so too might that fact that the warmest year recorded globally was not in 2008 or 2007, but in 1998.

But it is true. For the last 11 years we have not observed any increase in global temperatures.

And our climate models did not forecast it, even though man-made carbon dioxide, the gas thought to be responsible for warming our planet, has continued to rise.

So what on Earth is going on?

Pentagon extends Army, Marine deployments in Iraq

Defense Secretary Robert Gates this week approved a request from U.S. combat commanders in Iraq to extend the deployment of some troops serving there by as much as two and a half months.

The extensions are intended to ensure that key capabilities remain in place after the January elections in Iraq. The units affected include the Army's 1st Cavalry Division headquarters and the II Marine Expeditionary Force, based in Texas and North Carolina, respectively. The tours of duty could be extended for an additional 23 days for the Army and 79 days for Marines.

FLASHBACK - Algerian daily confirms Mossad training camps for al-Qaida?

Al-Fayçal summed up the report in a very short and succinct manner: 'Ennahar, the Algerian daily, asserted that the Jewish State is recruiting al-Qaeda Islamists in Europe who originated in the Maghreb (the Maghreb, or the Western part of Africa, is considered to encompass the countries of Morocco, Tunisia, Lybia and Algeria) and providing them with training in Israeli camps, in order to use them in terrorist attacks next summer.'

There is nothing peaceful about that. Keep looking at those faces. They are the faces of Obama’s peace. War is not peace. Remember that.

Depraved, Obscene Absurdities

Almost no one will acknowledge the single, fundamental truth about Barack Obama, the truth of greatest and most terrifying consequence:

Barack Obama is a war criminal.

Oct 09 13:09

Audacity in Norway

Obama is a man who has yet to shut down a global gulag, who has yet to end the warring in Iraq, who has yet to oversee the return of the elected president of Haiti (deposed by US, Canadian, and French forces), who stands unflinching on the coup d’etat in Honduras, who runs cover for Israeli massacres of Palestinians and Israeli violations of the Geneva Conventions (i.e., supporting war crimes), who seeks to proliferate military bases in Columbia, who has ramped up the killing in Afghanistan, and who has overseen the spillover of war into Pakistan.

Is this the criteria that is deserving of a Nobel Peace Prize?

'USA Today' Will Show 17% Circulation Decline in Next Report, As Single Copy Sales Sink -- But Revenue Flat

When the Audit Bureau of Circulations releases the latest numbers on Oct. 26, it will show that USA Today's circulation fell 17% to 1.88 million for the six months ending September 2009, a drop of about 390,000 copies. The decline could also threaten USA Today’s position as the No. 1 newspaper in the country by circulation.

USA Today stood shoulder to shoulder with those people who lied us into the war in Iraq and are lying us into a new war in Iran.

And now they are paying the price for that deception.

Palestinians barred from Old City

Israeli police have barred Palestinians protesting in defence of the al-Aqsa mosque compound from gaining access to Jerusalem's Old City.

Friday's increased restrictions on the mosque compound in occupied East Jerusalem follow a series of clashes that started late last month.

Men under the age of 50 have been prevented from accessing the mosque for the past six days.

Several hundred Palestinians, denied entry to the mosque, performed Friday prayers just outside the gates of the Old City as the heavily armed Israeli police deployed extra troops.

Palestinian leaders called on Friday for a one-day strike, as some suggested that the Israeli actions could spark a third uprising, or intifada, against the occupation.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Palestinian Refugees have the right to return to their homes in Israel.
General Assembly Resolution 194, Dec. 11, 1948
"Resolves that the refugees wishing to return to their homes and live at peace with their neighbors should be permitted to do so at the earliest practicable date, and that compensation should be paid for the property of those choosing not to return and for loss of or damage to property which, under principles of international law or in equity, should be made good by the Governments or authorities responsible."

Israel's occupation of Palestine is Illegal.
Security Council Resolution 242, Nov. 22, 1967
Calls for the withdrawal of Israeli forces from territories occupied in the war that year and "the acknowledgment of the sovereignty, territorial integrity and political independence of every state in the area and their right to live in peace within secure and recognized boundaries free from threats or acts of force."

Israel's settlements in Palestine are Illegal.
Security Council Resolution 446, March 22, 1979
"Determines that the policy and practices of Israel in establishing settlements in the Palestinian and other Arab territories occupied since 1967 have no legal validity and constitute a serious obstruction to achieving a comprehensive, just and lasting peace in the Middle East."

Palestinian have the right to Self-Determination.
General Assembly Resolution 3236, November 22, 1974
Affirms "the inalienable rights of the Palestinian people in Palestine...to self-determination without external interference" and "to national independence and sovereignty."

Resolution 127: recommends Israel suspend its no-man's zone' in Jerusalem.

Resolution 250: calls on Israel to refrain from holding military parade in Jerusalem.

Resolution 251: deeply deplores Israeli military parade in Jerusalem in defiance of Resolution 250.

Resolution 252: declares invalid Israel's acts to unify Jerusalem as Jewish capital.

Resolution 267: censures Israel for administrative acts to change the status of Jerusalem.

Resolution 271: condemns Israel's failure to obey UN resolutions on Jerusalem.

Resolution 298: deplores Israel's changing of the status of Jerusalem.

Resolution 476: reiterates that Israel's claim to Jerusalem are null and void.

Resolution 478: censures (Israel) in the strongest terms for its claim to Jerusalem in its Basic Law.

Sweatshop Conditions in US Cities

A new low-wage industry study by the Center for Urban Economic Development, the National Employment Law Project, and the UCLA Institute for Research on Labor and Employment exposes the dark side of workforce exploitation in America's three largest cities - New York, Los Angeles and Chicago.

From January through August 2008, researchers conducted 90-minute interviews with 4,387 "front-line" workers, aged 18 or older, using "innovative, rigorous methodology" to reach vulnerable people "often missed in standard surveys, such as (undocumented) immigrants and those paid in cash." The goal was to be as statistically representative of workplace violations as possible for a population of about 1.64 million workers, or 15% of the total workforce studied.

Obama Will Go Naked to Stockholm

Today we awoke to news that Obama was awarded the Nobel Peace Prize. Some looked quick to see whether it was April 1. Most often folks mumbled resignedly “War is Peace.” I prefer the Vietnam era formulation that warring for peace is like fu**ing for virginity. A few wept tears of disappointment, certainly mainstream Medea Benjamin who, having recently come out definitively as a hawk, must have thought that with this adjustment the Nobel was certainly in sight. Code Pink needs a new name now. Justin Raimondo suggests Code Yellow. But I believe Whores for Wars might be better.

OBAMA'S DO NOTHING PRESIDENCY HEADING FOR DISASTER / DESPITE NOBEL PRIZE

Letter to Nobel Committee on the Absurdity of Peace Prize Award to Lying Warmonger Obama

I am disappointed that Nobel Committee chose to award President of the United States Barack Obama a Nobel Peace Prize, for the following reasons:

Mr. Obama has not done anything significant in promoting and enforcing peace in action.

Mr. Obama is incapable of promoting peace between Palestine and Israel by reason of ignoring U.N.'s Goldstone Report on Israel's war crimes against Gaza through the Obama Administration's contemptible tone in defense of the State of Israel as though Israel merits absolute impunity from war crimes.

Oct 09 12:22

Comment: absurd decision on Obama makes a mockery of the Nobel peace prize

Rarely has an award had such an obvious political and partisan intent. It was clearly seen by the Norwegian Nobel committee as a way of expressing European gratitude for an end to the Bush Administration, approval for the election of America’s first black president and hope that Washington will honour its promise to re-engage with the world.

Instead, the prize risks looking preposterous in its claims, patronising in its intentions and demeaning in its attempt to build up a man who has barely begun his period in office, let alone achieved any tangible outcome for peace.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

But Obama did cave into the Israelis regarding West Bank settlements, and is blocking any and all efforts by the United Nations to send Israel's war crimes to the Hague, and continues to loot the American tax payers to enrich Israel in violation of the Symington Amendment to the US Foreign Appropriations Act.

Maybe that's what that medal is for?

What Not Being Able To Buy Oil In Dollars Means

Buying oil in dollars is one of the foundations of the dollar’s role as the world’s primary reserve currency. Because the the dollar is the world’s primary reserve currency Americans have been able to borrow money for significantly less than other countries are able to. This has both made America more prosperous, and through the perverse incentives of cheap money, helped lead to the high indebtedness of American citizens and the financial crisis.

Obama’s Nobel Peace Prize

I learned this morning that nominations for the prize had to be in by Feb. 20, about one month after Obama was inaugurated. That means that the prize went for his rhetoric during the campaign, not anything he could have actually accomplished. As I recall, his two most memorable foreign policy pronouncements during the campaign were 1) advocating that the U.S. bomb Pakistan; and 2) escalating the war in Afghanistan.

Obama's Nobel Peace Prize

When I saw this morning's top New York Times headline -- "Barack Obama Wins Nobel Peace Prize" -- I had the same immediate reaction which I'm certain many others had: this was some kind of bizarre Onion gag that got accidentally transposed onto the wrong website, that it was just some sort of strange joke someone was playing. Upon further reflection, that isn't all that far from the reaction I still have.

Obama's Nobel win seen as 'daring' bet on future

Webmaster's Commentary: 

How about giving me the Nobel Prize in medicine as a "daring bet on the future" that I can sure cancer?

It is obvious that the Emperor's New Nobel is not drawing the unabashed praise form the world that was hoped, so the spin now is, "Okay, maybe he doesn't deserve it, but he might, down the road, and that justifies giving it to him now!!!!"

There are a great many people who actually deserve the Peace Prize based on what they have DONE, not what they might do in the future and the names that come first to mind are Cindy Sheehan, Cynthia McKinney, and Ehren Watada.

Feel free to add your own nominees in the comments section.

Obama's Nobel Is Premature, Historians and Political Scientists Say

Giving President Obama the Nobel Peace Prize is a "premature canonization" and an "embarrassment" to the process of designating a laureate, a presidential historian says.

"The jury is still out as to what his presidency is going to add up to," Fred Greenstein, author and professor of politics emeritus at Princeton University, told FOXNews.com.

"It's more of an embarrassment to the Nobel process."

Webmaster's Commentary: 

The deadline for submissions for consideration for the 2009 Nobel Peace Prize was February 9th, 2009. That means Obama had been President for just 2 weeks when he was submitted for the award.

Warmonger Wins Peace Prize

It took 25 years longer than George Orwell thought for the slogans of 1984 to become reality.

“War is Peace,” “Freedom is Slavery,” “Ignorance is Strength.”

I would add, “Lie is Truth.”

The Nobel Committee has awarded the 2009 Peace Prize to President Obama, the person who started a new war in Pakistan, upped the war in Afghanistan, and continues to threaten Iran with attack unless Iran does what the US government demands and relinquishes its rights as a signatory to the non-proliferation treaty.

Gun-toting soccer mom, husband shot dead

Soccer mom Melanie Hain, who made national headlines last year by having a loaded, holstered handgun at her 5-year-old daughter's soccer game, has been found shot dead in her home along with her husband, police said Thursday.

Information from 911 calls shows that it took a SWAT team nearly an hour and a half to gain entry to the Lebanon, Pennsylvania, home Wednesday evening. Inside, they found the bodies of Hain, 31, and her husband, Scott, 33, police Capt. Daniel Wright said.

Police have avoided labeling the incident a murder-suicide. However, they do not believe that another person was involved, Wright said. A full investigation is under way, he added.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Between the hemming and hawing over the crime, the assumption that there was no third party, and the SWAT team taking an HOUR AND A HALF to get there, I am wondering if someone was trying to send a message about private citizens being armed.

Open Letter to the Denver Post (about 9/11)

Besides Mr. Carroll's article, there was Joanne Ostrow's article, "KBDI pushes limits on controversial pledge tie-ins," and even Mike Littwin gave a hostile jab saying the "truthers" are more weird than the "birthers."

As shown below, the articles fail to meet the Posts’s own published ethical standards for journalism such as the requirements of intellectual honesty, to present all sides, to be fair and even-handed, and to avoid loaded phrasing. None of the authors has attempted to present any facts or a reasoned analysis for their dismissal of these citizens. They instead have all stooped to ad hominem attacks, displaying a striking and perplexing lack of curiosity as to why a new investigation is supported by 45% of American citizens (2006 Zogby poll). Thus, the overall tone of each piece is that of propaganda and not news or journalism.

“Death Bonds”: Wall Street’s Shocking New Plan To Reap Billions Off Dying Americans

Now we know why America’s oligarchs are fighting to keep the rest of us stuck in the world’s worst health care system: the more we die, the more billions Wall Street will earn. A recent article in The New York Times exposed how Wall Street is licking its lips over a new scheme to make hundreds of billions in profits by creating financial instruments that will profit off of millions of terminally-ill Americans’ agony, desperation, and death. The only thing standing in the way of this massive new Wall Street scheme is the kind of health care reform that might allow Americans to live longer lives. Yep, this is what we spent trillions of dollars bailing out Wall Street for: so that they can kill us for profit.

They don’t even bother hiding it anymore: take the story about the “Death Bonds” I wrote about last month, first reported (however blandly) in the New York Times: the very same Wall Street bankers who conned $23 trillion out of America’s wealth is now going to use some of that play money to place bets on when we Americans will die—and the sooner we die, the more billions in E-Z profits Wall Street will earn.

FHA Loans the Choice of Housing Comrades. How Government Backed Loans are creating Another Problem for the Housing Market.

Bless our real estate addicted society. You would think that a housing crash unlike anything seen since the Great Depression would teach us some lessons. It has been two years since the recession started and a decade long housing bubble. The first thing you would probably remove from the market is the toxic mortgage sector. Somehow in the mind of the politicos and Wall Street, the idea of allowing low down payment mortgages is still part of the turbo capitalist psyche. Recent data from FHA loans is abysmal. In fact, we are seeing subprime like trends. Recent data is suggesting that it is only a matter of time before the FHA goes to the American people for a bailout.

In Surprise, Nobel Peace Prize to Obama for Diplomacy

President Obama was awarded the Nobel Peace Prize on Friday for his “extraordinary efforts to strengthen international diplomacy and cooperation between peoples."

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Obama is the guy that just ordered a VETO of the UNSC's efforts to hold Israel accountable for war crimes, on the excuse that allowing Israel to commit war crimes with impunity somehow aids the peace process.

Obama wins prize for best political bullshit

How ass backwards is this world? How oxymoronic is this?
Obama wins a Nobel Peace prize
Obama is not a peacemaker so how does he qualify for such a prize?

Quite frankly I am thinking these prizes are just jokes, in and of themselves.

IRS Misses 13% ($15m) of Fraudulent Refunds

IRS’s ability to detect identity theft-related refund and employment fraud is limited, but by the end of 2008, IRS had cataloged over 50,000 incidents. According to IRS, about 90% of fraudulently claimed refunds were stopped in 2008 with about $15 million issued before IRS became aware of the fraud. IRS does not know the amount of refund or employment fraud that goes undetected.

Swiss city allows controversial right-wing poster

The posters are part of a campaign by the nationalist Swiss People's Party (SVP) and feature a veiled woman against a background of a Swiss flag pierced by several minarets resembling missiles.

The cities of Basel and Lausanne have described the posters as racist and banned them in publicly-owned spaces. However, Zurich is among a clutch of cities that have chosen not to prohibit them.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

I wonder what the reaction would be to a poster of a menorah with missiles in place of the candles?

War Criminal Obama Deserves An Oscar, But Not A Nobel Peace Prize

In a world where war criminals like Tony Blair are rewarded and those that oppose war criminals, like the Iraqi shoe thrower Muntadhar al-Zeidi, are imprisoned and tortured, it comes as no surprise that another war criminal – Barack H. Obama – has been rewarded for his stoic service to imperial bloodletting with the Nobel Peace Prize.

Devastating Report Documents Israeli Crimes Against Civilians in Gaza: Where's the Outrage?

Webmaster's Commentary: 

The guy who just won the peace prize told us to forget about it, because actually punishing Israel for committing war crimes gets in the way of peace.

No, it doesn't make any sense, any more than Obama getting the Peace Prize, but that's the official line.

I wonder if the Nobel Committee are a bunch of Israeli stooges and this is Obama's payoff for protecting Israel, not to mention violating the Symington amendment to keep on looting the American taxpayer to hand to Israel?

Vaccine Preservative's Effects May Have Been Known

For decades, half of all childhood vaccines contained a chemical preservative called thimerosal.

It is made from mercury, one of the most poisonous substances on Earth.

...

Before the 1990s, 1 in 10,000 children were diagnosed with autism. But in the past decade, as the government has increased the number of mandatory vaccines, some recent studies suggest the rate of autism has risen to 1 in about 250 children.

Approximately 12 out of the 18 vaccine doses the average American child receives before the age of two contain thimerosal. Cumulatively, that's more than 200 micrograms of mercury, which would fit on the head of a pin.

According to the EPA, dropping that pin-head of mercury into 23 gallons of water would make it unsafe for human consumption.

Obama Wins the Nobel Peace Prize?

I woke up to a text message from CNN that Obama had won the Nobel peace prize. First thought-- "Why? What did he do to earn it? Extend the Afghan war? Send thousands of storm trooper police to Pittsburgh for G-20?

Webmaster's Commentary: 

You can drop a note to the Nobel Committee HERE

My note read,

Obama, the President who just thwarted the will of the United Nations by blocking war crimes charges against Israel based on his stated premise that allowing Israel to commit war crimes with impunity aids the peace process?

THAT Obama?

Are you guys on drugs???????

Barack "no we can't" Obama gets the 2009 Nobel Peace Prize

The American people put the Democrats back in power in Congress specifically to stop the wars in Iraq and Afghanistan. What did they get in return? The "Surge". Then they put Obama in power to stop the wars in Afghanistan and Iraq. What did they get since?

One would imagine that with such a tally Barack Obama would be clearly seen for what he is: just another puppet for exactly the same elites who ran the Dubya puppet. But no, it turns out that the friggin Nobel Committee has given Barack "no we can't" Obama the 2009 Nobel Peace Prize!

As the 456,000 schoolchildren in the Gaza Strip start their academic year, they face chronic shortages of everything from paper, textbooks and ink cartridges to school uniforms, school bags and computers, the result of the Israeli blockade. At the same time, severely overcrowded classrooms are having to accommodate students whose schools were destroyed or damaged in the last siege, early this year.

Continued support of genocide and apartheid in Palestine …..
Guilty of orchestrating coup in Honduras …..
There’s more……

BUT, put them all together and you have the perfect winner for the Nobel Peace Prize.
WHAT A FARCE!

Webmaster's Commentary: 

I lost all respect for the Nobel prize when Al Gore got it for trying to lie us all into accepting global government by waving global warming at us all.

Now we have Obama, who thinks allowing Israel to get away with war crimes is the path to peace.

And for this they gave him a Peace Prize??????

Mercury, Vaccines and Medicine

Much is known about the deadly effects of mercury, thimerosal and vaccines, but did you know early testing of thimerosal was done on people who were terminally ill? Great way to be able to claim thimerosal is a safe product, if you can get away with it, which Big Pharma did for a long time.

I find it almost incomprehensible thimerosal, the well-documented, toxic preservative that contains mercury, is still in many vaccines, years after federal agencies have mandated that it be removed. Especially when it comes to injecting infants with toxic chemicals when their nervous systems are just forming, because physicians certainly should know better.

NASA makes as-yet unseen hit on moon with probes

NASA bulldozed two spacecraft into the lunar south pole Friday morning in a search for hidden ice. Instruments confirm that a large empty rocket hull barreled into the moon at 7:31 a.m., followed four minutes later by a probe with cameras taking pictures of the first crash.

But the big live public splash NASA had hoped for didn't quite happen.

Checking the media’s Iran hysteria

Our national media seems intent on replicating their dubious behavior from the run up to the Iraq invasion. This time the target of their fearmongering is Iran.

FAIR (Fairness & Accuracy in Reporting) collects some of the media’s most dubious assertions about the nature of the Iranian nuclear program and notes:

there is no firm intelligence that Iran is pursuing nuclear weapons. Iran has long insisted that is not their goal, and U.S intelligence reached the conclusion in 2007 that Iran’s weapons program ended in 2003

The surprising real story about this year’s Northeast passage transit: The media botched it

The Times has liberally papered London underground carriages with a fascinating new ad campaign. One poster shows a ship navigating some treacherous icy waters, with the accompanying copy reading:

Climate change has allowed the Northeast Passage to be used as a commercial shipping route for the first time.

Impressive – if only it were true.

According to the ad copy:

To help you navigate the changing world we have more dedicated science and environment correspondents than the Guardian, Daily Telegraph, Daily Mail or Independent.

Only one problem: The Northeast Passage has been opened for commerce since 1934 – and never ‘closed’.

Preparing Americans for Hyperinflation

Webmaster's Commentary: 

PLEASE WATCH THIS VIDEO!!!!! (High Def by following original link)
This video ignores government borrowing and the effects of the repeal of Glass-Steagall, but otherwise has good information.

Also note at 23:35 where this documentary points out what I have been saying all along. The United States got out of the crash of 1920 by CUTTING SPENDING IN HALF AND OTHERWISE LEAVING THE MARKETS ALONE. In contrast, it was government intervention in 1929 that dragged that depression, which actually started out less severe than the 1920 crash, into a ten year disaster than ended with WW2.

How to Win a Nobel Peace Prize

Oct 09 07:00

Congressional Budget Office calculations for the climate bill give new meaning to the term "rosy scenario."

The most recent Congressional Budget Office (CBO) calculations for the Waxman-Markey climate bill give new meaning to the term "rosy scenario."

CBO pegs the annual household cost of Waxman-Markey at $175 per household, yet its own report suggests gasoline could rise 77 cents a gallon. That's $800 more a year just for gasoline, assuming a family uses 20 gallons a week. CBO claims that free emission allowances will offset this, but these go to businesses and government--not consumers.

Unlike other analysis, including EPA's, CBO assumes the legislation won't slow down the economy. But tweak CBO's assumptions with common sense and the annual household bill is more like $3,300. And that's in 2020 before the emissions cap ratchets down and costs climb thousands more.

Argentina’s Economic Collapse

Documentary on the events that led to the economic collapse of Argentina in 2001 which wiped out the middle class and raised the level of poverty to 57.5%. Central to the collapse was the implementation of neo-liberal policies which enabled the swindle of billions of dollars by foreign banks and corporations. Many of Argentina's assets and resources were shamefully plundered. Its financial system was even used for money laundering by Citibank, Credit Suisse, and JP Morgan. The net result was massive wealth transfers and the impoverishment of society which culminated in many deaths due to oppression and malnutrition.

Massive expansions of US-NATO “counterinsurgency” in Afghanistan McChrystal demands bloodshed

US and NATO commander Stanley A. McChrystal is demanding a massive expansion of “counterinsurgency” operations in Afghanistan that, according to classified documents, would require 500 thousand troops over the next five years.

While bellicose new calls for the Obama administration and NATO to exponentially deepen the “war on terrorism” are being repeated endlessly, McChrystal and his own horrific crimes have received scant notice in the corporate propaganda media.

The IGNOBLE NOBEL Peace Prize goes to Obama!!!!! WHAT?

As I lifted my jaw, Gordon-Brown style, up an inch or two, the value of the Nobel Peace Prize dropped several miles in my estimation.

They’ve awarded it to WHOM?

BARACK (THE WORLD’S SAVIOUR) OBAMA!?

What?

This has got to be the WORST EVER DECISION by that once-highly respected body. The worst EVER.

Not because Obama doesn’t mean well – the old woman next door means well – but because he was five minutes in the job and suddenly he’s the world’s peace-maker. I understate for emphasis – he was actually TWO WEEKS in the job before he was seen to deserve to be listed for this nomination. And nine months in the job before he got it.

WHY? What has happened since? World peace? Worldwide nuclear disarmament?

Whodunit? Sneak attack on U.S. dollar

It’s the biggest mystery in global finance right now: Who conducted a sneak attack on the U.S. dollar this week?

It began with a thinly sourced but highly explosive report Monday in a British newspaper: Arab oil sheiks are conspiring with the Russians and Chinese to quit using the dollar to set the value of oil trades — a direct threat to the global supremacy of the greenback.

Is it true? Everyone from the head of the Saudi central bank to U.S. officials scrambled to undercut the story, but no matter.

With the U.S. economy on the ropes and America by far the world’s biggest debtor, investors aren’t feeling as secure about the dollar as they used to. And the notion of second-tier economies ganging up on Uncle Sam didn’t sound so far-fetched.
