New EU President to Lead Us Out of This Mess?

I'm not sure about you, but this seems like a terrific new leader for the EU - an Austrian School economist who believes in liberty and sovereignty, and agrees with the majority of the citizens of the world that all these bailouts are the wrong way to solve problems we are facing.

Lieberman: Obama 'about perfect' in Cabinet picks

Connecticut Sen. Joe Lieberman took another step Tuesday toward mending his relationship with Democrats, saying that Barack Obama's actions since winning the presidency have been "just about perfect."

"Everything that President-elect Obama has done since election night has been just about perfect, both in terms of a tone and also in terms of the strength of the names that have either been announced or are being discussed to fill his administration," Lieberman said during a visit to Hartford.

No power-of-office yet, Mr. Obama!

[In spite of the MSM's efforts to get Obama into power by impressive photos and news reports calling him President-elect, he isn't legally entitled to any power yet. It still looks like a slow takeover in progress -- the Constitution being a useless relic for the present administration and apparently the one planned by Obama/Clinton as well. And wow! We were going to get rid of the Bush/Clinton/CFR /NWO gangsters with Obama. Somebody promised!] ]

Dear Barack: things you should know about Turkey

Soner Cagaptay - The Daily Star - Tuesday, November 25

Obamamania in Turkey will help you change America's image [...]

This is an amazing look at how Soner Cagaptay, a senior fellow at the Washington Institute for Near East Policy, and the published author of "Islam, Secularism, and Nationalism in Modern Turkey" views the world and the prospect of having a Barack Obama as President of the United States, versus a George W. Bush or a John McCain.

Soner's view is not merely racist with a ready-made inferiority complex to back up this exuberant racism.

Don't Suppress Carter (or the Opportunities for Middle East Peace)

Pandering is what Barack Obama perfected in his address right after the Denver nomination to the AIPAC convention. During his trip to Israel-Palestine, he refused to comment on the plight of the occupied Palestinians or the humanitarian crisis in encircled Gaza that over the past year's strife has produced Gazan civilian casualties at a rate of over 400 times those inflicted on Israeli civilians.

A report just published in the Journal of the American Medical Association's Archives of Internal Medicine (Arch Intern Med. 2008;168[21]:2302-2303) reaches a startling conclusion. Breast cancer rates increased significantly in four Norwegian counties after women there began getting mammograms every two years. In fact, according to background information in the study, the start of screening mammography programs throughout Europe has been associated with increased incidence of breast cancer.

The following is a list of companies announcing plans to participate in the U.S. government's capital purchase program, under which the U.S. Treasury plans to spend up to $250 billion on equity stakes in potentially thousands of banks, using funds approved by Congress under the $700 billion bailout bill.

I don't think you want to see your bank on this list. I mean just look at some of the names that are on this list!

Battered, but not broken: understanding the WPA crack

Academic researchers have found an exploitable hole in a popular form of wireless networking encryption. The hole is in a part of 802.11i that forms the basis of WiFi Protected Access (WPA), so it could affect routers worldwide. German graduate student Erik Tews will present a paper at next week's PacSec in Tokyo coauthored with fellow student and aircrack-ng team member Martin Beck that reveals how remnants of WPA's predecessor allow them to slip a knife into a crack in the encryption scheme and send bogus data to an unsuspecting WiFi client.

Obama urges careful spending as he names budget chief

Houston Chronicle - By BETH FOUHY and JIM KUHNHENN Associated Press

CHICAGO — President-elect Barack Obama pledged to make deficit reduction a goal of his administration today — but only after recovery from the financial crisis is well under way. "We are going to have to jump start the economy," he said.

One problem with jump starting the economy, is it has been tried and the bailouts keep getting bigger and closer together.

Celebrities like Madonna won't come to Britain because of ID cards

From today, anyone from outside the European Union who wants to live and work in the UK for more than six months will have to apply for a compulsory British ID card.

Jacqui Smith, the Home Secretary, wants 90 per cent of foreign residents in Britain to have identity cards by 2014.

To get an ID card, people will have their faces scanned and will have to give 10 fingerprints.

Campaigners fear that this will put off celebrities like American singer Madonna from setting up home here and so damage the cultural life of the nation.

Osama bin Laden is Dead

Osama bin Laden had serous kidney disease that required him to have dialysis treatment twice a week. There aren't any dialysis machines floating around in the border region of Afghanistan and Pakistan.

A leading Russian political analyst has said the economic turmoil in the United States has confirmed his long-held view that the country is heading for collapse, and will divide into separate parts.

Professor Igor Panarin said in an interview with the respected daily IZVESTIA published on Monday: "The dollar is not secured by anything. The country's foreign debt has grown like an avalanche, even though in the early 1980s there was no debt. By 1998, when I first made my prediction, it had exceeded $2 trillion. Now it is more than 11 trillion. This is a pyramid that can only collapse."

Bailout - Treasury Secretary Paulson Threatened Reps with Martial Law

Now, Senator Inhofe, speaking on KFAQ radio station in Tulsa, has confirmed who it was that issued this threat. The interview host Pat Campbell asked Infhofe, "Somebody in D.C. was feeding you guys quite a story prior to the bailout, a story that if we didn't do this we were going to see something on the scale of the depression, there were people talking about martial law being instituted, civil unrest. Who was feeding you guys this stuff?"

You Ain't Seen Nothing Yet By Mike Whitney

So how will Geithner and Summers deal with the problems they'll be facing just two months from now?

They'll do whatever they need to do to stabilize the financial system and to get consumers spending again. That means at least another $2 trillion added to the ballooning national debt and some extremely dodgy ways of getting liquidity into the system.(With the Fed Funds rate already at 1 percent, monetary policy is limited)

Larry Summers, who will serve as Obama's chief economics advisor, summed up his plan like this to Bloomberg News:

Bad bosses may damage your heart

Staff Writer BBC Health

Inconsiderate bosses not only make work stressful, they may also increase the risk of heart disease for their employees, experts believe.

A Swedish team found a strong link between poor leadership and the risk of serious heart disease and heart attacks among more than 3,000 employed men.

Coup d'etat!, BO falsely assuming power

[At this particular time, Obama has no US government political power as he has resigned from the Senate. He is NOT Prez-elect yet. He has no legal authority as President, yet is acting as though he does. A strategic "coup d'etat"?

And You Thought 1931 Was Bad for the Market

The S.& P. 500 has lost more than a third of its value in a calendar year only twice before, both during the Great Depression. It fell 41.9 percent in 1931, and 38.6 percent in 1937. The worst post-Depression year, until now, was 1974, when the index fell 29.7 percent amid the worst postwar recession the country has yet seen.

But this year, the index is down 45.5 percent.
