Suburbs take hit as US poverty climbs in downturn

A pair of analyses by the nonprofit Brookings Institution paints a bleak economic picture for the 100 largest metropolitan areas over the past decade and in coming years, and finds that suburbs now are home to one-third of the nation's poor, and rising.

The study of census data finds that since 2000, the number of poor people in the suburbs jumped by 37.4 percent to 13.7 million. The growth rate of suburban poverty is more than double that of cities and higher than the national rate of 26.5 percent.

Obama reshapes administration for a fresh strategy

So the best arena for Obama to execute his plans may be his own branch of government. That means more executive orders, more use of the bully pulpit, and more deployment of his ample regulatory powers and the wide-ranging rulemaking authority of his Cabinet members.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Translation: whatever Obama wants to do, from climate change regulation to economic manipulations guaranteed to destroy the middle class in this country, will come about through executive order.

FBI seizes John Lennon's fingerprints in NYC

Wrecking the American Dream

On September 28, the US Census Bureau provided more evidence of economic trouble, reporting America's highest ever income gap. In 2009, median household income fell nearly 3% from $51,726 to $50,221, the second consecutive annual drop.

Moreover, among all developed nations, America has the highest income disparity, and it's showing up in record numbers needing Medicaid, food stamps, and emergency food help. In addition, higher levels of poverty, homelessness and other worrying signs show economic weakness, not strength.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

One has to wonder: just when will the American people finally realize what has been done to them, and just what form will their fury take?!?

Israel is now punishing Palestinians shamelessly

Behind a modest desk with a view of Beit Jala sits a nameless Shin Bet security service officer who is very pleased with himself. He has just saved the Jewish people in Israel from yet another grave security risk by preventing a 47-year-old woman, for five weeks now, from going abroad for urgent medical tests.

This is a mere footnote in the chronicle of the Palestinians' life under foreign rule. But this footnote is a typical chapter in the history of Israeli society: a democratic society that gives those wonderful fellows from the Shin Bet a blank check to act like the last of the great dictators and juggle with their subjects' lives - without elections, without oversight, without supervision.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

These guys must be proud of themselves, for preventing an ill woman from getting desperately needed diagnostic tests!

Yeah, that's something to crow about with their IDF buds over a couple of brewskies!

An Israeli weapons salesman and a former American Air Force pilot admitted to illegal weapons trading in a Miami court on Wednesday.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Americans are in Somalia, being shot at, and this bozo wanted to sell them more guns to do it with!

Shooting Children ’Will Continue’ In Gaza’s Buffer Zone

New research from Defence for Children International (DCI) shows that Gazan children are routinely fired upon if they stray too close to the border fence. They have documented 10 cases since May, of which six took place beyond Israel’s stated exclusion zone of 300m. Many more are expected in the coming weeks.

Webmaster's Commentary:

A 1000 ways to Hijack a Religion - video

Is Judaism a Euphemism for policing our finances?
Some religious Jews say Judaism has been hijacked by Zionists. Koestler and Shlomo Sands (both Jewish) say the Jews themselves have been conned into thinking they are descendants of the Biblical people. Are the Judaic laws being used to enslave the Jewish people in supporting a reign of financial oligarchy. Is all the identifying with being Jewish a euphemism for obligatory policing of the control of our financial institutions.
Could it be. that the Police and the military don't know themselves what they are fighting for? This video argues that that is true for the majority of Jews.

Israel in America: Obama’s Dance of Death

The writing is on the wall: Obama is a one-term president. That is if he is even allowed to finish his first term. Obama was never popular in Israel. When he tried to add Israeli critic, Chas Freeman, to his team as chair of the National Intelligence Council in 2009 AIPAC blew a fuse. Now there are even threats against his life as a result of his stance on settlements and his reluctance to attack Iran. Loud protests in front of Netanyahu’s residence witness crowds burning effigies of Obama "the new Pharaoh", "the descendant of slaves" who must be put in his place.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

This is why we need leadership which puts America first, second, and third, instead of our foreign policy being dictated by this government's "special relationship" with Israel, whose Knesset may well declare their country a Jewish theocracy in the near term.

Oct 07 09:30

A LIGHT UNTO THE NATIONS OR SANCTIMONIOUS BS?

sraelis, often thoroughly absorbed in their collective sanctimony and self-righteousness, seem never to stop repeating the eternal mantra that the Jews are a “light unto the nations” and Israel is “the only democracy in the Middle East”. This week, several events occurring in Israel and the occupied Palestinian territories highlighted the stark gap between what Israelis think about themselves and the reality.

Oct 07 09:23

Partitioning Iraq

From the outset of its occupation, the US pursued a policy of "soft partitioning" of Iraqi society by means of the pitiful political process it set in motion through the imposition of a set of legal instruments and executive bodies designed for that purpose.

In short, there is every reason to fear that the experts in Western think tanks and mercenary companies are still bent on fuelling strife and igniting civil war along the ethnic and sectarian divides in Iraq. Where would this lead Iraq and the Iraqi people? Clearly to a kind of test tube reproduction of Somalia aimed at partitioning the state.

PUTTING RACISM TO REST

Sometimes it can be difficult, having a conversation with those whose political views are so diametrically opposed to one’s own.But even more challenging, is having a discussion with someone who simply refuses to accept even the most basic elements of your worldview. At that point, disagreement is less about the specifics of one or another policy option, and more about the nature of social reality itself.

POLICE STATE: Operation RailSAFE Set To Begin

Operation Railsafe will begin this weekend with heightened security throughout the national rail system. Commuters will be victim to police state security all in the name of fighting terrorism. Most officials taking part in these drills have been brainwashed to the point that they actually believe cave dwelling ninjas will once again attack America.

According to a Homeland Security official, the national rail system Amtrak will be increasing security beginning Friday for a planned exercise that is not related to the Europe threat. The exercise, known as operation RAILSAFE, often takes plan over holidays when rail travel is up.

Is America Under Attack? ... Or Are the Barbarians Inside the Gates?

Barbarians inside the American national security system have destroyed our liberties and freedoms based on false pretenses.

UN Eyes Proposal to Fund Massive Somalia Escalation

According to Ugandan President Yoweri Museveni, the UN Security Council is studying his government’s proposal to provide some 20,000 additional troops for the Somalia occupation. The escalation of the African Union-backed war would be conditional on finding funding from abroad.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Control of Somalia puts certain Western interests (read: the US) in control of sections of the Gulf of Aden and the Indian Ocean.

This war has absolutely nothing to do with the welfare of the Somalian people and everything to do with control over logistics and resources.

FLASHBACK - Did Israel deliberately allow 241 American Marines to die ?

Yes, says Victor Ostrovsky, a former Israeli secret agent. In a new book, By Way of Deception: A Devastating Insider's Portrait of the Mossad, Mr. Ostrovsky says the Israelis had advance notice of the suicide attack that killed 241 Marines in Beirut in October 1983 but withheld the information from the United States in the hope that the attack would poison American Arab relations.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

I think it is time to go one step further. Now that MI5 has stated that Israel CREATED the Hijacking that led to the raid on Entebbe, it is time to ask of Israel; set up the attack in Beirut, as Sobran concludes, to "poison American Arab relations?"

Obama has Legislation that will Bailout Banks (Again) and Crush Homeowners on the Edge

A bill that homeowners advocates warn will make it more difficult to challenge improper foreclosure attempts by big mortgage processors is awaiting President Barack Obama's signature after it quietly zoomed through the Senate last week.

The bill, passed without public debate in a way that even surprised its main sponsor, Republican Representative Robert Aderholt, requires courts to accept as valid document notarizations made out of state, making it harder to challenge the authenticity of foreclosure and other legal documents.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

This is Obama's answer to the foreclosure mess; force the courts to give the presumption of accuracy to statements made by the bankers. In other words, the foreclosing party does not have to provide the actual documents to prove they have title to the house and that the mortgage is in arrears; their word is enough for the courts. The burden now falls on the home-buyer to prove the banks do not have the documents, and as any student of logic knows, proving a negative is impossible.

Victory for Israel's right as 'Jewish state' loyalty oath nears vote

A controversial national loyalty oath took a step closer to becoming law on Wednesday as Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu lost a battle to soften the wording of a new citizen's declaration.

Ministers approved a draft of the proposed oath, which would require anyone taking Israeli citizenship to swear allegiance to Israel as a "Jewish and democratic state".

Would-Be Akamai Spy Busted By Feds

"Elliot Doxer, an Akamai Technologies staffer, was charged on Wednesday with wire fraud. The case began in June 2006 when Doxer sent an e-mail to the consulate of a foreign country (referred to as 'country X') in which he 'expressed his desire to help that country with whatever information he could obtain in his position,' according to an article on ITworld. 'The foreign consulate that Doxer contacted turned his e-mail over to law enforcement authorities, and a little over a year later, he was contacted by an FBI agent posing as a representative of 'country X.'

Webmaster's Commentary: 

When the media goes out of their way not to name the nation caught spying, that tells you who it is. And since Akamai was started by Israelis, we can deduce who "country X" really is. After all, if the spy came from Russia or Iran, the media wouldn't pussy-foot around like that.

How A High-Speed Yuan Revaluation Could Force China Into A Crash

After all everyone is already doing it – cheating on trade, that is. The big surplus countries are dragging their feet on enacting the kinds of policies that will increase domestic demand and so reduce the drag on global growth caused by their deficient demand. The big deficit countries are either in collapse (Europe) or are warily eyeing the amount of their domestic demand that leaks abroad to create foreign jobs (the US). In a world of beggar-thy-neighbor policies and anemic global demand growth, countries that do not retaliate will almost certainly see rising unemployment.

Livni tells UN to mind its own business over flotilla probe

Opposition leader Tzipi Livni on Wednesday accused the United Nations of intervening in Israel's affairs through its probe into an Israeli raid on a Gaza-bound aid flotilla.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

The attack, which included attacks on a US-flagged ship and American citizens, took place in international waters. By virtue of its membership in the United Nations, Israel agrees to be bound by international law, a concept Israel is all too eager to support when it comes to urging the United Nations to intervene in the affairs of other nations like Iran!

Pakistan doesn't reopen key border crossing despite US, NATO apologies for helicopter attack

Pakistan said Thursday it has not decided when to reopen a key border crossing NATO uses to ship supplies to Afghanistan despite a U.S. apology for a helicopter attack that killed two Pakistani soldiers.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

The alternatives to this route are complex, and hideously expensive, which the Pakistani civilian and military leadership clearly understand.

The real problem is, however, that no matter what the US/NATO high command promises the Pakistani government, there can be no real guarantee that this kind of situation won't happen again.

Bank foreclosure cover seen in bill at Obama’s desk

A bill that homeowners advocates warn will make it more difficult to challenge improper foreclosure attempts by big mortgage processors is awaiting President Barack Obama's signature after it quietly zoomed through the Senate last week.

The bill, passed without public debate in a way that even surprised its main sponsor, Republican Representative Robert Aderholt, requires courts to accept as valid document notarizations made out of state, making it harder to challenge the authenticity of foreclosure and other legal documents.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

If ever there was legislation passed to absolutely cement the reality that Congress has utterly zero interest in serving the needs of We the People, and only serves the interests of those large corporations which have acquired them, it is this legislation.

And the passage and signing of this legislation, just at the moment when it has surfaced that people have been foreclosed on without proper documentation, is Congress's way of spitting, collectively, on the American people, and telling them it's raining; in other words, Congress believes itself no longer answerable to their electorate, but only to the companies which own them and dictate the legislation they pass.

How the Phone Companies Are Screwing America: The $320 Billion Broadband Rip-Off

Since 1991, the telecom companies have pocketed an estimated $320 billion --- that's about $3,000 per household.

This is a conservative estimate of the wide-scale plunder that includes monies garnered from hidden rate hikes, depreciation allowances, write-offs and other schemes. Ironically, in 2009, the FCC's National Broadband plan claimed it will cost about $350 billion to fully upgrade America's infrastructure.

The principal consequence of the great broadband con is not only that Americans are stuck with an inferior and overpriced communications system, but the nation's global economic competitiveness has been undermined.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

This is becoming a consistent pattern in the US. Pacific Gas and Electric got a rate increase approved because they needed to make repairs on the gas lines, only they took the money and didn't make the repairs and San Bruno blew up. This is more of the same. The phone companies got a rate increase back in 1991 to pay for system upgrades to support broadband, but they took the money and made only token improvements here and there while the rest of the world surged ahead. So, broadband in the US is like our medical care; the most expensive in the world, and lagging in quality.

Police Say Woman Went After Jesus Art With Crowbar

Khalid Sheik Mohammed has confessed to 9-11, causing the Wall Street Crash, burning Obama's Birth Certificate, shooting down Challenger and Columbia, assassinating Martin Luther King, John F. Kennedy, Robert Kennedy, and Abraham Lincoln!

(Ahem)

The real significance of this story is not that the US is torturing politically convenient confessions out of prisoners, but that we still do not know how many of these torture centers existed and what other horrors have been committed.

There is a warning in there for Americans, because the people of Ge4amny did not find out the full scale of what the Nazis had been doing until after they lost the war. Remember,m we have a President more interested in "semblance" than reality!

Trees of Medieval Warming Period - MWP Warmer Than Present

Based on radiocarbon dating of the fossil wood remains of eight larch (Larix decidua) stem fragments found one meter beneath the surface of the ground at the base of the front of the Piancabella rock glacier (46°27'02" N, 9°00'07" E) in the Southern Swiss Alps in September 2005, the authors determined that the wood was formed somewhere between AD 1040 and 1280 with a statistical probability of 95.4%.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

This confirms that the Medieval Warm Period was warmer than today. Obviously the world did not end.

Legal Defeat for Global Warming in Kiwigate Scandal

The specific charge brought against the Kiwi government was that it’s climate scientists had taken the raw temperature records of the country and then adjusted them artificially with the result that a steeper warming trend was created than would otherwise exist by examination of the raw data alone.

Indeed, the original Kiwi records shows no warming during the 20th century, but after government sponsored climatologists had manipulated the data a warming trend of 1C appeared.

Climate Models Do Not Simulate Real-World Cloud Structures Well

In this study, cloud profiling radar data from the CloudSat satellite were combined with lidar data from the CALIPSO satellite to obtain 3D profiles of clouds and precipitation regimes across the tropics.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

So what this study is reporting is that the computer models used by the warmistas to "prove" that humans are warming the Earth are so flawed they cannot even accurately model the cloud cover we are seeing today, a major factor in whether the Earth is warming or cooling.

Two reports published by NYU's Brennan Center for Justice and the American Civil Liberties Union (ACLU) reveal a rising trend of patently unconstitutional practices in cash-strapped states, where a growing number of impoverished people are jailed for being unable to pay their legal fees - including charges for use of public defenders, a guaranteed right in the United States. The resurgence of these draconian "debtors' prisons" has been documented in at least 13 of the 15 states with the largest prison populations in the country, including California, Arizona, Michigan and Alabama.

27 Signs That The Standard Of Living For America’s Middle Class Is Dropping Like A Rock

If you still have a job and you can put food on the table and you still have a warm house to come home to, then you should consider yourself to be very fortunate. The truth is that every single month hundreds of thousands more Americans fall out of the middle class and into poverty. The statistics that you are about to read are incredibly sobering. Household incomes are down from coast to coast. Enrollment in government anti-poverty programs sets new records month after month after month. Home ownership is down, personal bankruptcies are way up and there are not nearly enough jobs to go around. Meanwhile, the price of basics such as food and health care continue to skyrocket. Don't be fooled by a rising stock market or by record bonuses on Wall Street. The U.S.

You may have not noticed, but we are in the middle of the third major bailout of U.S. and European banks and their investors in as many years.

Then came the European Union’s €750 billion bailout of its weaker members—essentially another attempt to stabilize Europe’s banks, which together funneled some $2 trillion into the bonds, banks, and real-estate sectors of Europe’s shakiest economies: Greece, Ireland, Portugal, Spain, and Belgium.

Birth of the National Security State

It is not far fetched to speculate that the United States has, over the past ten years, been sliding into a form of authoritarianism that retains only some aspects of the constitution and a limited rule of law. America's president can, for example, commit soldiers to combat overseas without a constitutionally mandated declaration of war by congress while it is quite possible to be detained by the authorities and locked up without any prospect of trial or opportunity to defend oneself. The government even believes it can kill American citizens based only on suspicion.

Possible Staged Terror Attacks As Operation RailSafe Set To Begin

This is a very suspicious operation. Terror alerts have been issued in Europe and at the same time American officials are carrying out drills of the exact same nature? Staged terror is a documented fact and as the November elections draw closer we should be ever vigilant for a possible false flag attack somewhere in the world. This attack will be blamed on Osama Bin Laden[a dead man] and his supposed group, Al Qaeda.

Operation Railcar will begin this weekend with heightened security throughout the national rail system. Commuters will be victim to police state security all in the name of fighting terrorism.

MAIDHC Ó CATHAIL: Al-Qaeda’s Suspect Humanitarianism

Is bin Laden’s concern for flood victims a ruse to destabilise Pakistan?

AP’s sole source for the 11-minute tape, with the oddly contemplative title “Reflections on the Method of Relief Work,” is SITE Intelligence Group. The U.S.-based group, which purportedly “monitors jihadi forums,” provided AP with a copy of the message that it claims was posted on unnamed “Islamic militant websites.”

There are questions, however, about whether SITE Intelligence is the most objective source of information about terrorism.

SITE co-founder Rita Katz, an Israeli Defense Forces veteran, is an Iraqi-born Jew,

'Secret prison used by CIA' says official

The CIA used a secret prison in Europe to torture its most important terrorism suspect, according to an official who first uncovered a secret network of prisons for holding suspects.

He told the BBC there was now reliable evidence that Khalid Sheikh Mohammed, the man accused of masterminding the 9/11 attacks, was tortured in Poland in the months before that country joined the European Union.

Swedish towns strained by asylum seeker spike

The Swedish National Migration Board (Migrationsverket) has been forced to rent camps and other temporary accommodations to deal with the acute housing shortage.

Many small municipalities which have been forced to take in large numbers of applicants applicants on short notice are critical of the agency's actions.

So far this year, 22,045 applicants have sought asylum in Sweden. About 4,000 of them have declared Serbian citizenship, compared with only 421 in same period last year.

In September alone, 1,410 Serbian citizens arrived in the country. Local authorities are currently arranging acute services such as health care.

No Way Out

Doug Casey

I really dislike sounding inflammatory. Saying that things are going to go terribly wrong runs a risk of being classed with those who think the world will end in December 2012 because of something Nostradamus or the Bible says, or because that’s what the Mayan calendar predicts.

This is different. In the real world, cause has effect. Nobody has a crystal ball, but a good economist (there are some, though very few, in existence) can definitely pinpoint causes and estimate not only what their immediate and direct effects are likely to be (that’s not hard; a smart kid can usually do that) but the indirect and delayed effects.

'Death to the Arabs' is graffiti in Jewish holy site in occupied E. Jerusalem

Writes a friend: This is the tomb of Simon the Righteous, the one near the houses stolen by the settlers in Sheikh Jarrah, East Jerusalem [the neighborhood that the Obama administration did nothing to stop house evictions in]. To be precise, the "Tomb" site contains two caves, one of them called "Simon the Righteous' Cave", where he is believed to have been buried, and the the other, where the graffiti was shot, is called "The Small Sanhedrin Cave", and 23 members of the Sanhedrin are believed to have been buried there.

Notice that property in this neighborhood of occupied Jerusalem was bought up by local and foreign Jewish investors some years ago.

UK housing market set for a fall, IMF warns

The fund, in its half-yearly World Economic Outlook, said it was 'worrisome' that UK property prices still remained so expensive

The International Monetary Fund raised the prospect of a double dip in Britain's property market today when it said house prices were overvalued and vulnerable to a fall.

The fund, in its half-yearly World Economic Outlook, said it was "worrisome" that British property prices still remained so high and that tax breaks to encourage first-time buyers might not be enough to prevent a second leg to the downturn triggered by the financial crisis three years ago.

Prospects for US economy either 'fairly bad' or 'very bad', warns Goldman Sachs

http://www.guardian.co.uk/business/2010/oct/06/goldman-sachs-fairly-ba...

Goldman Sachs's chief US economist outlines alternative, but bleak, scenarios for American growth and jobs over the next nine months

Gloomy predictions for the US economy hardened today when Wall Street bank Goldman Sachs said the economy was likely to be "fairly bad" or "very bad" over the next six to nine months.

Jan Hatzius, chief US economist at the bank, described two scenarios in a letter to investors: "a fairly bad one in which the economy grows at a 1.5% to 2% rate through the middle of next year and the unemployment rate rises moderately to 10%, and a very bad one in which the economy returns to an outright recession."

The euro moved above $1.39 Wednesday for the first time since February, while the yen struck a 15-year high. The dollar is sliding broadly because investors expect that the Federal Reserve will increase its support for the U.S. economy, driving down interest rates and dampening the currency's appeal for investors.

Flashback: On October 6, 1976, anti-Castro terrorists murdered seventy-three people on Cubana Flight 455 off Barbados.

On October 6, 1976, anti-Castro terrorists murdered seventy-three people on Cubana Flight 455 off Barbados.

Declassified letters and reports (like below from FBI Director Clarence M. Kelley to Henry Kissenger) show that the United States Government knew of the plot beforehand and not only that: they knew exactly who was involved almost four months before the bombing.

For over three decades the US government has protected the terrorists. This outrage continues under the Obama Administration and undermines whatever moral authority the United States retains in the persecution of its war in Iraq – a “part-time hobby” war with no end in sight.

Recognition of Israel as Jewish state poses existential threat to Israeli Arabs

Jonathan Cook argues that Palestinian recognition of Israel as a Jewish state, as demanded by Israeli Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu, would destroy the campaign by Israel’s Arab citizens to reform Israel into a true democracy and would mean that Netanyahu will have Palestinian backing to label the reformers a fifth column and expel them to bantustans in the West Bank.

Conyers and Kilpatrick Demand Lenders Extend Housing Foreclosure Moratorium to Michigan; No More Foreclosures Until Fraudulent Paperwork is Resolved

The revelation that large mortgage lenders may have been evicting families from their homes based on flawed and erroneous documentation is no small matter. These lenders may have presented false affidavits - that is, sworn legal testimony - in thousands of cases fraudulently stating that a homeowner was in default or that the lender had the legal right to foreclose on the property, without the proper verification of the facts asserted in those affidavits. Moreover, the admission by these lenders of inaccurate documentation raises broader questions about whether they are proceeding with foreclosures in non-judicial foreclosure states based on faulty documentation or information. It is crucial that these lenders are held accountable.
