Mr. Mozilo and his co-defendants didn’t admit to any wrongdoing. But Mr. Mozilo agreed to pay $67.5 million in a penalty

“For years, Mr. Mozilo was among the highest-paid executives in America and his S.E.C. fine is a fraction of the vast wealth he amassed running Countrywide. In one eight-year period, from 2000 until he left the company in 2008, Mr. Mozilo received total compensation of $521.5 million, according to Equilar, a compensation research firm.”

$521 Million in 9 years salary translates to $158,000/day everyday. that is sick.

5 times we almost nuked ourselves by accident

We spent the Cold War in perpetual fear that the U.S. and U.S.S.R. would start an intentional nuclear conflict. The truth is, we came far closer to blowing ourselves up with nuclear weapons than we ever came to WWIII.

Nuclear incidents have a bunch of ominous military code names, like Broken Arrow, Faded Giant or NUCFLASH. There are actually dozens of instances like these, but here are five major ones that happened in the U.S.

Murray, Rossi spar over taxes, government size in debate

SPOKANE, Wash. - Democratic U.S. Sen. Patty Murray and Republican challenger Dino Rossi argued over tax cuts and the role of government during their first debate of the campaign Thursday evening.
The debate produced few fireworks as the candidates stuck to well-worn themes that have been featured in a barrage of television ads.

I heard someone say recently that it's like having a choice between being hanged and being drowned... Rossi sends money to the banks, Murray sends money to Israel. Then end result? We're out our money. I bet if there were a third candidate, he'd put our money in his own pocket.

Channel 4 in explosive row with millionaire Tories over 'tax dodge' investigation

The documentary makes allegations about millionaire Ministers including Chancellor George Osborne, Transport Secretary Philip Hammond and International Development Secretary Andrew Mitchell.

Last night, all three men strongly denied any implication that they had acted improperly by deploying tax-avoiding measures, with Mr Hammond warning that his ‘lawyers will be watching’ the programme tomorrow.

FED want Inflation as the Fix

BOSTON, Oct 16 (Reuters) - Two top Federal Reserve officials argued for further aggressive action by the central bank, with one saying the economy needs "much more" help and the other pointing to Japan's painful lessons.

With nearly one in ten in the U.S. labor force unable to find work and already very low inflation threatening to drop further, the U.S. central bank is expected to offer the economy more support at its next policy meeting on Nov. 2-3.

Most analysts expect the Fed will embark on a fresh round of Treasury purchases, over and above the $1.7 trillion in longer-term assets it has already bought.

Now that the colonization of the US is nearly done, both are toying with releasing all these captive inflationary dollars. If they want something, all they have to do it talk about launching ‘Sovereign Wealth Funds’ and have this money return to the US in the form of buying out the last of our infrastructure and commodity resources!

CNBC Senior Editor Says Congress Will Pass Law Sanctioning Foreclosure Fraud As Banks Continue To Rob American Citizens

Thousands protest loyalty oath bill

Protest over the amendment to the Citizenship Act continues – some 6,000 people on Saturday evening gathered in Tel Aviv's Gan Meir to protest of the loyalty oath bill, which was approved by the government on Sunday.

Meretz Chairman Chaim Oron also spoke during the rally and said, "A bad spirit is hovering above this land. The test that stands before us is complicated and complex. The Knesset has 11 pending bills that are oozing of racism. We must stop this wave.

"We cannot run a democratic country as long as there is an occupation. We call on the government and the Knesset to freeze all racist laws and continue to freeze the construction in the settlements," he said.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Protests like this prove that some Israeli citizens still have a moral compass.

Unfortunately, once legislation is passed, it is always much more difficult to repeal that legislation.

Now here’s a simple favor I’d like to ask of you if you are on Facebook.

Just click on the “+ share” at the top of the page. It will bring down a scroll menu. By then clicking on the “f” Facebook link, a dialog box will open which asks “what’s on your mind,” plus a picture of the book cover and a link to the publisher’s website. You can then type a message into the box such as “great book…a must read,” etc. Then click the “share” box at the bottom of the page and it will automatically be posted to your Facebook page and will then become visible to your friends.

This will help to make a larger audience aware of the book and, with luck, word will continue to spread about it – and more people will buy it.

Israel settlers start fires amid West Bank harvest

Thick black smoke billows from the olive grove under the gaze of Israeli soldiers as Palestinian farmers use branches to try to beat out the fires lit by Jewish settlers.

It's olive harvest time in the occupied West Bank.

The firebombers swooped down from Havat Gilad, a wildcat Jewish settlement unauthorised even by the Israeli government.

Encircled by barbed wire, the makeshift dwellings glower down on the surrounding Palestinian olive plantations from a hilltop in the northern West Bank.

BP attorney suggests that the oil giant might seek to cap spill claims at $75 million

In a seemingly never-ending parade of radio, television, print and web ads, in addition to numerous official statements, BP officials have repeatedly insisted that the company intends to make the Gulf Coast and its residents "whole" again. In the latest such PR blitz, BP employee and New Orleans native Iris Cross reiterates that the company will do everything it has to do in order to "make this right."

But yesterday in federal court, an attorney for the oil giant sent shockwaves throughout the Gulf region by suggesting that BP may seek shelter under the $75 million liability cap polluters can invoke under the Oil Pollution Act of 1990.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

The Oil Pollution Act, introduced by Walter B. Jones, Sr., Democrat North Carolina following the Exxon Valdez disaster, limits the amount of damages oil companies have to pay when they have a major spill. After the Deepwater Horizon disaster, the US Senate briefly entertained a retroactive raising of the cap from $75 million to $10 billion, but that bill went nowhere because after all oil campaign contributions trump the well being of the American people any day.

GORDON DUFF: WHEN WILL THE CRIMES OF 9/11 END?

DISINFORMATION, SPYING, INTIMIDATION, THE BIGGEST COVER-UP IN AMERICAN HISTORY

There are so many theories around regarding 9/11, with government paid “shills” coming up with a new and crazier version almost weekly. For every pronouncement about Al Qaeda and hijackers the government makes overtly, they make ten pronouncements about space aliens and cosmic death rays on the internet.

We know they do it, they have been caught repeatedly. These are the actions of a police state.

I am not ready to comprehensively discuss all the reasons that 9/11 is such a disgusting subject. Suffice it to say that the naked lies the government has foisted on the public for so long are both irrational and patently insane. This is where Khalezov shines. He has a way of cutting through the manure.

Appearing on the political talk show Freedom Watch, Lt. Col. Anthony Shaffer, a former Defense Intelligence Agency officer and the author of Operation Dark Heart, a much-hyped new book on the war in Afghanistan, spoke about his mid-October 2003 encounter with Dr. Philip Zelikow, then executive director of the National Commission on Terrorist Attacks upon the United States.

'US seeking to rewrite Iraq war history'

While the US military claims 77,000 Iraqis were killed between January 2004 and August 2008, a former Iraqi lawmaker has dismissed the figure, protesting that the estimate is misleading as it does not include assassinations and victims of US military operations.

In 2006, a study conducted by the British medical journal The Lancet, revealed that 655,000 Iraqis had died in the war. The Opinion Research Business (ORB)'s study, similarly, put the number of post-invasion deaths at over 1 million.

"Basically what we have accomplished in Iraq is ethnic cleansing and genocide. The Lancet report, and you mentioned the ORB, these are legitimate scientific reports that estimate the deaths in Iraq at well over a million," the activist added.

EPA faulted for not disclosing coal ash's recycling risks

The Environmental Protection Agency's inspector general reported this week that the EPA had improperly used an official website to promote ways of recycling the waste that's left over when power plants burn coal, commonly known as coal ash.

The waste contains arsenic and other metals that can cause cancer and damage the nervous system in people who drink contaminated water, and it can kill fish and other aquatic life. The inspector general's report also says the EPA should have mentioned on the website that it had found seven cases of large-scale dumping of coal ash that had caused damage to health and the environment.

Feds to Enforce U.S. Drug Laws Even if California Legalizes Marijuana

Holder sent a letter this week to nine former chiefs of the Drug Enforcement Administration clarifying his agency's position on California's Proposition 19, The Los Angeles Times reported Friday.

"Let me state clearly that the Department of Justice strongly opposes Proposition 19. If passed, this legislation will greatly complicate federal drug enforcement efforts to the detriment of our citizens," Holder wrote.

Bisphenol A (BPA) officially declared toxic by Canada

Canada became the first country in the world yesterday to declare bisphenol A (BPA) to be a toxic substance that poses risks to human health and the environment.

The announcement by the Canadian Health and Environment Ministries confirmed the chemical had formally been added Schedule 1 of the Canadian Environmental Protection Act, 1999 (CEPA 1999).

"The Government of Canada has a strong record of taking action on Bisphenol A to protect the environment and health of Canadians," said Environment Minister Jim Prentice. "We are continuing our leadership on this issue and...working hard to monitor and manage Bisphenol A."

BPA is an industrial chemical used to make a hard, clear plastic such as re-usable polycarbonate baby bottles. It is also used in the manufacture of epoxy resins, which act as a protective lining on the inside of metal-based food and beverage cans.

The War On Terror

The bottom line answer is that the "war on terror" is about creating real terrorists. The US government desperately needs real terrorists in order to justify its expansion of its wars against Muslim countries and to keep the American people sufficiently fearful that they continue to accept the police state that provides "security from terrorists," but not from the government that has discarded civil liberties.

The US government creates terrorists by invading Muslim countries, wrecking infrastructure and killing vast numbers of civilians. The US also creates terrorists by installing puppet governments to rule over Muslims and by using the puppet governments to murder and persecute citizens as is occurring on a vast scale in Pakistan today.

Zardari says he has proof of US terror against Paksitan

The News International, Pakistan‘s largest English-language newspaper, published a report on October 13 based on excerpts from American journalist Bob Woodward’s recently released volume “Obama’s Wars” which stated that during a trilateral summit between the presidents of the U.S., Afghanistan and Pakistan on May 6 of 2009 Pakistani head of state Asif Ali Zardari accused Washington of being behind Taliban attacks inside his country with the intent to use them so “the US could invade and seize its nuclear weapons.”

Webmaster's Commentary: 

This appears to have been the game plan all along.

But one has to wonder why Zardari is making this claim so late in the process, and expressing outrage now.

The civilian and military leadership, who have been well-bribed to look the other way while US drones kill their citizens will enjoy a very comfortable life in exile, when this whole episode is over, courtesy of the American taxpayers.

A US soldier who captured a deadly 2009 rampage at Fort Hood with his cell phone camera testified Friday that he was ordered to erase the video by his commanders.

The story I got from an anonymous insider is that there were four soldiers who thought they were headed home, but had been told they were being sent back to Iraq yet again. These guys lost it, started shooting, and were killed by guards. But the military and the US Government did not want word of an actual armed mutiny in the ranks to get out, aware that it might trigger a cascade of similar incidents among a rank and file clearly pushed to the breaking point. So, the Muslim guy got blamed for it, and as this story confirms, the actual evidence of hat happened was ordered destroyed.

I am calming myself as I write this! BUT, CNBC has an article saying the Congress, U.S. Government WILL PASS A LAW TO SANCTION THE FRAUD! As CNBC puts it.....

Because the politicians will not let the financial stability of the largest bank in the nation be threatened by contractual rights. Not when there’s an easy fix available that won’t cost taxpayers a dime.

Here’s what is going to happen: Congress will pass a law called something like “The Financial Modernization and Stability Act of 2010” that will retroactively grant mortgage pools the rights in the underlying mortgages that people are worried about. All the screwed up paperwork, lost notes, unassigned security interests will be forgiven by a legislative act.

The Second Leg Down Of America's Death Spiral

Last Friday, Bank of America announced that it was suspending all foreclosure proceedings, presumably until further notice. Other banks have already suspended foreclosures in a whole truckload of states. A nationwide moratorium on foreclosures might soon happen—which would be a big deal: Global Financial Crisis, Part II—Longer, Wider and Uncut.

But the mainstream media—surprise-surprise—has downplayed the whole shebang. They’re throwing terms out there into the ether, but devoid of context or explanation: “Robo-signings”, “foreclosure mills”, forged signatures, “double booking”, MERS—it’s confusing as all get-out.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Because the Corporate media is owned by, well, corporations; including those corporations behind the greatest financial swindle of an entire nation in history. The corporate media will not dare inform the public that the entire financial system is corrupt because their own fortunes depend on perpetuating the hoax for as long as possible!

But the American people, as Admiral Isoroku Yamamoto put it, are a sleeping giant, slow to wake, but once aroused, filled with a terrible resolve.

The American people are waking up to the realization that the financial destruction of their lives over the last ten years was intentional, inflicted on them by the greed of the money addicts on Wall Street and in Washington DC. As I told Patricia, the homeless woman who called into my show years back, you didn't do anything wrong; this as done to you!

We spent the Cold War in perpetual fear that the U.S. and U.S.S.R. would start an intentional nuclear conflict. The truth is, we came far closer to blowing ourselves up with nuclear weapons than we ever came to WWIII.

Nuclear incidents have a bunch of ominous military code names, like Broken Arrow, Faded Giant or NUCFLASH. There are actually dozens of instances like these, but here are five major ones that happened in the U.S.

Israel Declares War On It's People

You could easily miss the thin, gravel road that leads to Al Arakib, a Bedouin village in the north Negev. It is a bit ironic, given the enormity of the struggle there and its deep implications for the Jewish state.

Israeli forces have razed the village five times since late July, sparking cries of ethnic cleansing and leaving more than 300 Bedouin homeless. But the equally determined residents, along with a handful of Jewish activists, continue to rebuild.

On the Road with Ahmadinejad in Lebanon - Dr. Franklin Lamb

An important reason for the outpouring of popular support was the quarter century of Iranian assistance to Lebanon for social projects, and for rebuilding much of Lebanon following the 1993, 1996 and 2006 Israeli aggressions. Massive aid that was detailed by Hezbollah’s Secretary-General in a recent speech and the cost of which is estimated to be in excess of one billion dollars.

Genetically engineered fish is answer to seafood crisis

Right now, the government is deciding whether it’s safe for us to eat genetically engineered salmon. The fish, called AquAdvantage, is being developed by a Massachusetts biotech firm and is in every measurable way identical to Atlantic salmon—except it grows to normal size twice as fast. If officials at the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) give it the green light, it would be the first time that a genetically engineered animal is approved for food use.

The War On Terror

The bottom line answer is that the “war on terror” is about creating real terrorists. The US government desperately needs real terrorists in order to justify its expansion of its wars against Muslim countries and to keep the American people sufficiently fearful that they continue to accept the police state that provides “security from terrorists,” but not from the government that has discarded civil liberties.

The US government creates terrorists by invading Muslim countries, wrecking infrastructure and killing vast numbers of civilians. The US also creates terrorists by installing puppet governments to rule over Muslims and by using the puppet governments to murder and persecute citizens as is occurring on a vast scale in Pakistan today.

Same Accident Viewed From Three Different Street Corners

One of the limitations of three-dimensional life is everyone views life and its events from different viewpoints, perspective’s, and experiences. Each viewpoint is likely to be correct as far as it goes, but is limited and therefore could be called a relative truth.

The CIA, the KKK and the USA

The CIA today is committing many of the same sort of gruesome crimes against foreigners that the KKK once inflicted on Americans of color. The principal difference is that the KKK consisted of self-appointed vigilantes who regarded themselves as both outside and above the law when they perpetrated their crimes. By contrast, the CIA acts as the agent of the American government, often at the highest levels, and at times at the direction of the White House. Its crimes typically are committed in contravention of the highest established international law such as the Charter of the United Nations as well as the U.S. Constitution...

GEORGE GALLOWAY FLIES TO TORONTO AFTER FEDERAL COURT DECISION

By James Clark — rabble.ca

Eighteen months ago, Minister of Citizenship and Immigration Jason Kenney blocked then-British MP George Galloway from Canada, labeling him a terror supporter and a national security risk. At the time, Galloway was scheduled to appear in four Canadian cities on a speaking tour called “Resisting War: from Gaza to Afghanistan.”

This week, after Federal Court Justice Richard Mosley issued his 60-page decision on the matter, Galloway and his supporters were fully vindicated.

Why Germany Has It So Good -- and Why America Is Going Down the Drain

http://www.informationclearinghouse.info/article26603.htm

Germans have six weeks of federally mandated vacation, free university tuition, and nursing care. Why the US pales in comparison.

While the bad news of the Euro crisis makes headlines in the US, we hear next to nothing about a quiet revolution in Europe. The European Union, 27 member nations with a half billion people, has become the largest, wealthiest trading bloc in the world, producing nearly a third of the world's economy -- nearly as large as the US and China combined. Europe has more Fortune 500 companies than either the US, China or Japan.

Team Obama punts on China currency until mid-November

For the second time this year, the Obama administration delayed Friday the release of a report on whether China manipulates its currency, but deflected some of the political heat from angry Democrats by launching an unrelated trade probe.

At issue is whether China deliberately undervalues its currency to make its exports cheaper abroad and imports from other countries more expensive at home. The International Monetary Fund recently said that China's currency, the yuan, is significantly undervalued.
