Adam Kokesh: The Fed is under audit

The Federal Reserve will be audited to conduct a search for what many believe has been a problem of to much lending. Of course, the audit has a few conditions that the auditors will have to abide by. The audit will be conducted only this one time, it is not to interfere with authority to set monetary policies, it will have to focus on December 2007 until now and the results must be posted by December 1st.

NFL Hall of Fame to Reality Hall of Shame

We have a society today that draws on professional sports to quench our human need and desire for heroes. Like it or not, our children are more likely than not to list a professional athlete if asked who they have for role models and heroes. Given the type and flavor of professional athletes, that’s pretty damn scary...

Jerusalem Day is Every Day for Us

As strange as this may sound to an outsider, there is no day out the year that I despise more than Jerusalem Day. I live in Jerusalem, my children were born there and to me, it is the city closest to my heart. Still, tell me "Jerusalem Day" three times and I might just start hyperventilating. This is because Jerusalem Day is when the government of Israel, followed by hundreds of thousands of Israelis celebrate the "reunification of Jerusalem". To Palestinians, this is retranslated into "the day the rest of Jerusalem fell". Jerusalem Day marks the day in June 1967 when Israel occupied the eastern sector of the city along with the West Bank, Gaza Strip and the Golan Heights.

Israel Negotiates Only to Extort Concessions

The West planted Israel in Palestine, turned blind eye on its nukes and tolerated the premeditated depopulation of its indigenous people and eradication of their history. While Israel has been building Jewish-only settlements and Jewish-only roads in the occupied lands and laying siege to 1.5 million in Gaza, demolishing civilian houses in Jerusalem and denying the Arab-Israelis equal protection of the law by virtue of being non-Jews, the West officials do not miss an opportunity to applaud Israel’s “only democracy in the Middle East”.

Nakba and the Two State Solution: Unrealistic 'Realism'

On the surface and viewed from the perspective of dominating powers, their designated minions, and entrenched cohorts, it may appear that the Nakba is diminishing. Several facts corroborate that view: the passage of time, the very dispossession and dislocation of millions, the tendency of official Palestinian “leadership” to accept whatever scraps they are given, the seemingly insurmountable military superiority of Israel and its main backer, the United States, to name a few. Discursively also, talk of the Nakba has been curtailed, especially among official Palestinian Authority officials and Arab governments. It has been increasingly replaced by details and technicalities that avoid dealing with the crux of the Palestinian predicament.

Economist Tim Madden: The PIIGS Brief: understanding how oligarchs rig, loot our economies. 3 of 4

*hyperlinks live at source*

Tim Madden is an economist with expertise on credit and banking. Tim and I are colleagues in lobbying government for public banking, with concentration in the US for state-owned banks (and here). The good news is that structural solutions to our economic controlled demolition are obvious and simple; and explained beautifully by many of America’s brightest historical minds. The bad news is that we’re still mired in oligarchic looting of our economies.

Strategies for Revolutionaries: On the necessity of conscious politicization -

Every action – and inaction – of our lives is political. From the purchases we make, beliefs we act upon, and fears we internalize, we are inescapably political animals. In spite of this unavoidable social reality, various institutions and agencies claim ‘objectivity’ and ‘fairness’ are subverted by political biases, and encourage us to adopt ‘post-ideological worldviews’. [...] With this conceptual dissonance it follows, then, that a great many people have come to misunderstand what it means to be ‘political’. Under this ideologic fugue, populations that are unconscious of their political activism can easily become neutered or subverted into advocating against their best interests.

Elena Kagan's Goldman Sachs Ties

On Friday, a slew of inquiries was made to the White House and Justice Department about a minor post Solicitor General Elena Kagan once held at Goldman Sachs, the investment bank under fire over controversial mortgage securities transactions. Kagan served on a Goldman advisory council between 2005 and 2008, with the task of providing expert "analysis and advice to Goldman Sachs and its clients." For her work she earned a $10,000 stipend.

That lucky, lucky, LUCKY... 'Lucky' Larry!

On the day of 9/11, when the entire nation is in shock from the mass murders and a lot of the world is worrying which country will feel the USA's wrath, what's 'Lucky' Larry up to?

Buggering his insurance companies to read the policy 'Lucky' Larry bought only weeks before to pay for two occurrences on 9/11. Around the world, but especially in the USA, millions and millions are mourning, thinking of the fragility of life and calling loved ones, but not 'Lucky' Larry! He's trying to make this tragedy payoff like a fixed Las Vegas slot machine.

Russia seeks to become regional player in Middle East

DAMASCUS // The Russian president, Dmitry Medvedev, yesterday criticised the United States for not doing enough to foster peace in the Middle East, warning that the regional situation was "dangerous" and could slip out of control.

After two days of talks in Damascus with the Syrian president, Bashar Assad, Mr Medvedev said Moscow was prepared to step in and take a more prominent role in bringing about a deal between warring factions.

He also met Khaled Meshaal, the exiled leader of the Palestinian Islamic movement Hamas. Russia and Syria maintain close links to the group, which is considered a terrorist organisation by the US, despite winning elections in Gaza in 2006.

Jeremy Scahill’s True Colors Bleeding Through (or “Poo On Fire”)

Scahill’s article addresses an MSNBC Dylan Ratigan segment in which they are pretending to have on two people with “opposing” viewpoints. But like much of the fake “left/right” paradigm, the “opposing” viewpoints offered are simply different shades of the same nebulous grey.

Let’s first flush out the “pro-war” commonality Dylan’s two guests share: Support the Clinton administration’s decision to step up the war in Pakistan based on the false pretense that the Pakistani Taliban attacked us in Times Square with the SUV Sparkler of Doom.

You see, the undercurrent here is that if BOTH of these two “opposing” viewpoints share the same basic unspoken agreement, then it must be taken as a given, right?

Alan Grayson: “We Beat The Fed”

While many are expressing disappointment and even despair that the Senate voted down Ron Paul’s audit the Fed bill while passing a weakened version, Congressman Alan Grayson is confident that the stronger provisions of the original House amendment can be added in Committee, ensuring the Federal Reserve doesn’t get off the hook, as Congressman Paul has warned.

9-11 Judge is Connected to Rothschild-Funded Mossad Culprit ICTS

Judge Hellerstein's close family connection to the Rothschild-funded Mossad company responsible for the terror attacks of 9-11 explains why he was chosen to handle the 9-11 tort litigation. He was chosen to manage the 9-11 litigation to protect the 9-11 deception - and the guilty - by blocking discovery and preventing a trial. When Judge Alvin K. Hellerstein closes the book on the 9-11 litigation having settled all the cases out of court without a trial, I suspect he will have to retire in Israel. Knowing very well how he and his Zionist cronies have obstructed justice for so many people, his fear will not let him live in peace among those he has wronged so grievously.

Once Amigos, Now Enemies: BP, Halliburton, And Transocean

One thing is for sure, and that is that with this oil spill many secrets that have been kept hush-hush on how these rigs are built in the Gulf, will finally come to light.

There many angry people in Louisiana, many disgruntled rig workers, and whistle-blowers that will reveal what they know in days to come to investigators. BP, Transocean and Halliburton would be better off banding together instead of pointing fingers at each other. If our justice system works, each of the companies will have to pay for cutting corners, violating safety standards, and for conspiracy.

A Tale Of Lies, Deceit, And Terrorism: The Birth Of Israel

“Jewish villages were built in the place of Arab villages. You do not even know the names of these Arab villages, and I do not blame you because Geography books no longer exist, not only do the books not exist, the Arab villages are not there either … There is not one single place built in this country that did not have a former Arab population.” (Moshe Dayan, Address to the Technion, Haifa, as quoted in Haaretz, 4-4-1969)
