Links of the Day & Great Depression 2.0

Over 600 architects say 9/11 was an inside job ~ link ~ I have been saying for some time that any intelligent person, who has not closed his/her mind, no longer believes the official conspiracy theory about 9/11. The official conspiracy theory is a B Grade Hollywood movie level script.

USS McCain and USS Chafee - two very high tech guided missile destroyers - sail ahead of North Korean missile launch ~ link ~ My best estimate is still that the North Korean launch/s will not result in another war. However, there is a real probability - maybe 25% - that events will result in a very nasty regional war.

Economic Meltdown: The "Dollar Glut" is what finances America's global military build-up ~ link ~ Interesting article.

Khmer Rough prison commander faces survivors ~ link ~ Killing this evil bastard is way too good for him.

Obama "fires" CEO of GM ~ link ~ The really sad thing is that we have not allowed the existing US bankruptcy laws to be applied to the auto industry, to AIG, and to Wall Street. Instead we have taken on almost $10 TRILLION in debt with nothing to show for it. Who benefits from all this debt? Answer: the owners of the privately owned Federal Reserve System.

Banks are beginning to walk away from many real estate foreclosures in America ~ link ~ Some of the lower priced properties are not worth the legal fees/property taxes/insurance/etc. that the banks have to pay out for property that is unsellable on today's real estate market.

US Dept. of Health and Human Services approves an official but fictitious Medical Review Board headed by a dead dog with made up doctors names on the Board ~ link ~ You simply cannot make this stuff up. This is what happens when you have a Congress made up of whores for sale to the highest bidder. 'Big Pharma' wants a largely ineffective regulatory system and they got it. This is a prime example of America's fall to Third World status.

The Big Takeover ~ link ~ Rolling Stone makes the point that the global economic crisis is not about money but power - that Wall Street insiders are using the 'bailout' to stage a revolution.

The Quite Coup ~ link ~ The Atlantic magazine makes a case somewhat like Rolling Stone. They say the "recovery will fail unless we break the financial oligarchy that is blocking essential reform".

Russian court rejects imprisoned "tycoon's" plea ~ link ~ At least the Russian have put a few of their biggest crooks in prison. Too bad the West does not do the same.

Gordon Brown: New blow on eve of G20 Summit ~ link

Ukraine's Orange Revolution comes to a grim ending ~ link ~ Their so-called revolution was organized by the CIA and NeoCons and as such was based on lies.

Bibi vows 'every effort to reach viable peace' ~ link ~ Fox vows every effort to safeguard the hen house.

Obama traveling to London G20 meeting with staff of 500 etc. ~ link

Obama outlines plans for Chrysler and GM ~ link

Eight killed in North Carolina nursing home shooting ~ link
