The Economic Crisis Ends; The Political Crisis Begins ~ link ~The European corporate-elite — like their American counterparts — lavished non-stop praise on the “bold yet necessary” decision to bail out the banks; the economy was supposedly saved from “impending collapse.” But every action has an equal but opposite reaction. Bailing out the banks saved the butts of dozens of European bankers, but now millions of workers are about to experience a thundering kick in the ass. Unbeknownst to most Europeans, the public money that financed the bank bailouts created a massive public debt problem, to be solved by massively slashing public programs that benefit workers and the poor. This amounts to a blatant transfer of billions — maybe trillions of dollars — in public wealth, away from the majority of citizens toward a parasitic crust of bankers.

Why we must nationalize the Federal Reserve System ~ link ~
Not only is virtually the entire money supply created privately by banks, but a mere handful of very big banks is responsible for a massive investment scheme known as "derivatives," which now tallies in at hundreds of trillions of dollars. The banking system has been contrived so that these big banks always get bailed out by the taxpayers from their risky ventures.

Problem is, this scheme has reached its mathematical limits. Specifically, there isn't enough money in the entire global economy to bail out the banks from a massive derivatives default today. And when the investors realize that the "insurance" against catastrophe that they have purchased, in the form of derivatives, is worthless, they are quite likely to jump ship and bring the whole shaky edifice crashing down.

Obama signs bill increasing US debt limit to $12.4 TRILLION ~ link ~ This is NOT sustainable. The global banking families are having an orgy feasting on America; we are allowing them to destroy us.

Something's Not Right Here - with video ~ link ~
One year after the great collapse of our financial system, Wall Street is back on top while our politicians dither. As for health care reform, you're about to be forced to buy insurance from companies whose stock is soaring, and that's just dandy with the White House.

Truth is, our capitol's being looted, republicans are acting like the town rowdies, the sheriff is firing blanks, and powerful Democrats in Congress are in cahoots with the gang that's pulling the heist. This is not capitalism at work. It's capital. Raw money, mounds of it, buying politicians and policy as if they were futures on the hog market.

Israeli warplanes overfly Lebanon - Lebanese Army opens fire ~ link ~ link ~
U.N. peacekeepers and Lebanon say Israeli flights over the country violate Security Council Resolution 1701 that ended a 34-day war between Israel and Hezbollah guerrillas in 2006.

Genocide in Slow Motion ~ link ~
What is actually happening in the blockaded Gaza Strip, and less obviously on the occupied West Bank, is the continuation by stealth of Zionism’s ethnic cleansing of Palestine. My friend Professor Ilan Pappe, Israel’s leading “revisionist” (meaning honest) historian and author of The Ethnic Cleansing of Palestine, would and has put it another way. What we are witnessing is, in his words, “genocide in slow motion.” And that, really, is what the governments of the Western powers (and others) are complicit in.

The question that provokes in my mind is: Why, really, are the major powers (and others) allowing it to happen?

The only answer that makes some sense to me is this. They have concluded, but cannot say, that nuclear-armed Israel, with the assistance of the Zionist lobby in all of its manifestations, is a monster beyond control.

"There's no peace process anyway, and there's nothing on the horizon. Netanyahu doesn't want the lawmakers from Kadima to help with the peace process but rather to bury it," said Sarid.

Obama - his secret plan for our future - part 2 - video ~ link ~ A very interesting strategic analysis of who is pulling the strings on shaping the Obama Administration's Grand Strategy and some of the dangers therein. There is no linkage to the international nature of the global banking families, however, and this is a critical shortcoming of this series of videos. See part 3 ~ link

Eating Dust on the Information Superhighway - America's rural areas mostly lack broadband ~ link ~ The area given as an example (Princton, Indiana) is close to my home (I have friends in the county that Princton is in) and the story is correct.
The United States — where the Internet itself was invented — has fallen rapidly down the rankings of broadband penetration, from first a decade ago to 15th this year.

Fighting for the Family of Man ~ link ~
The American people are slowly waking-up to what we are. We are a Nation that has surrendered our right to determine our own destiny for the promise of a job, a nice home, or healthcare that we can afford. We think that we are still the same people who volunteered to fight a war against an obvious evil because it was the right thing to do, but that is no longer who we are.

The long series of wars that we have made possible, because we continued to think that it was right, have changed us. Our support for endless war has opened the door for a few individuals to reap astronomical profits from our Army’s actions. Our government is the hands of men who profit enormously by manufacturing and exporting war, not the tools of war, but actual war itself. Serving a government that creates wars, then uses our children for cannon fodder in them is a travesty beyond measure.

UK Cabinet Minister Tessa Jowell warns against election 'class war' ~ link ~ I don't think that a 'class war' strategy will work. The British working class has been hit and hit hard by the economic policies of the Labour government and are in no mood to support Labour as being 'their' government.

Venezuela, which now has the western hemisphere's highest kidnapping rate to add to its exploding violent-crime epidemic. (Caracas suffers some 40 murders each weekend.) There are as many as five abductions each day in the capital alone - and an estimated 4 out of 10 kidnapping cases across the country are never reported because, as in so many other Latin American countries, locals fear their corrupt police forces themselves are often involved in the crimes.
