Israel vows to hold Lebanon and Syria responsible over 'balance-breaking weapons' ~ link ~ The arrogance of the Israels would be laughable if it were not so dangerous. In their last war, largely against the unarmed civilian population of Gaza, they used horrific military weapons against men/women/children and attacked hospitals/schools/etc. They have the third largest nuclear arsenal on earth but they presume to lecture/threaten others about 'balance breaking' weapons.

Hizballah has become a major military force ~ link ~ This is psych ops preparing the population for another war. The Israels know that the large number of rockets and missiles manned by Hizballah are a real military danger, especially as they can be outfitted with WMD and fuel-air explosive advanced conventional weapons. They are a part of the Iranian/Syrian WMD counter-force that has to be taken out in any war on Iran. The Second Lebanon War (2006) was an attempt to take out this force prior to an attack on Iran but the Israels failed. They do not intend to fail in the coming war, no matter what weapons - including neutron bombs/etc. - that they have to use. The drumbeats for war continue every day, day in and day out. War is coming before the end of this summer.

David Cameron takes momentum after confident debate ~ link ~ Or so the mainstream news media are telling us. Sad to say, but a significant percentage of voters are such sheeple that they do not follow their own instincts but listen to the media and do what they are told that 'most people' are doing.

UK Election: Why Winning Could Feel A Lot Like Losing ~ link ~
In the final days of the campaign, the Conservatives will forcefully put the case for majority government. But if Mervyn King, the governor of the Bank of England, is right, they'd do well to temper their enthusiasm for outright victory. American economist David Hale revealed King's alleged private views in an April 28 interview with Australian television. "I saw the governor of the Bank of England last week when I was in London and he told me whoever wins this election will be out of power for a whole generation because of how tough the fiscal austerity will have to be," said Hale.

Full 9/11 El Al flight took off on 9/11 from JFK to Tel Aviv ~ link ~ It was necessary to get most of the team that did 9/11 out of the country.

WMR has learned from two El Al sources who worked for the Israeli airline at New York’s John F. Kennedy airport that on 9/11, hours after the Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) grounded all civilian domestic and international incoming and outgoing flights to and from the United States, a full El Al Boeing 747 took off from JFK bound for Tel Aviv’s Ben Gurion International Airport.

The two El Al employee sources are not Israeli nationals but legal immigrants from Ecuador who were working in the United States for the airline.

The flight departed JFK at 4:11 pm and its departure was, according to the El Al sources, authorized by the direct intervention of the U.S. Department of Defense. U.S. military officials were on the scene at JFK and were personally involved with the airport and air traffic control authorities to clear the flight for take-off.

According to the 9/11 Commission report, Transportation Secretary Norman Mineta ordered all civilian flights to be grounded at 9:45 am on September 11.

On the eve of the portentous Senate debate over the extent to which the financial industry is to be so as to avert future megacollapses on the backs of taxpayers, workers and consumers, a great gap has been left unattended.


That gap pertains to the continued powerlessness of the investors and consumers—the people who bear the ultimate brunt of Wall Street’s recklessness, avarice and crimes and who have the greatest interest in strong regulatory enforcement.

Among all the amendments filed for the upcoming Senate debate, only amendment number 29, introduced by Senator Schumer, provides a facility to establish an independent non-governmental non-profit Financial Consumers’ Association (FCA).


Eliot Spitzer: 7 Questions for Goldman Sacks ~ link

  • What percentage of Goldman's capital is dedicated to proprietary trading as opposed to capital formation for client companies?
  • What percentage of Goldman's profits derives from proprietary trading, asset management and prime brokerage activities; and what percentage comes from capital formation for client companies?
  • What percentage of Goldman's profits derives from marketing and trading derivatives, specifically the synthetic CDOs that are at the heart of the SEC investigation?
  • What percentage of Goldman's capital has been invested in U.S. government securities over the last year, essentially taking advantage of an interest arbitrage between Goldman's cost of capital and the rate being paid on Treasury bills?
  • How much income did Goldman derive from bets against products it marketed?
  • How much capital - debt and equity - have Goldman and the other major investment houses raised for their clients over each of the past five years?
  • How much capital have they invested overseas in foreign-based companies-especially through private equity funds?
  • This is just a starting list. The point is that we need to get a real measure of the social value of investment banking activity and to determine whether they are fulfilling the essential capital formation and liquidity needs of the markets. We taxpayers have given them billions upon billions upon billions based on the theory that they perform economically useful activities. They need to prove that they do.

    Now it's a European Banking Crisis ~ link ~
    For months the top leaders of the European Union resisted the idea of a bailout for Greece, wringing their hands over the estimated $61 billion cost. While the jawboning continued, the infection took hold. Bond vigilantes drove the Greeks' borrowing costs into the double digits. Investors, fearing a contagion in Europe's southern tier, dumped the stocks and bonds of Portugal and Spain. As it spread, markets started to pummel European banks and insurers for their exposure to what could prove to be one of the worst sovereign debt disasters ever. A bank crisis and a debt crisis rolled into one—the medical bills for this extreme case will make Europe long for the modest $61 billion of just a few weeks past.

    Ghost housing estates (subdivisions) testify to Irish boom and bust ~ link ~ At the height of the boom, prices for houses in Ireland were totally crazy they were so high.

    There are 621 ghost estates across Ireland now, a legacy of those hopeful years. One in five Irish homes is unoccupied.

    If the country immediately used them to house every person on the social housing list, there would still be hundreds of thousands left over.

    Spanish official unemployment rate is now 20% ~ link ~ If the Spanish figures are as 'cooked' as the American rates are, the real rate would be about 45-50%.

    There were 4,612,700 people unemployed in the country at the end of March, the national statistics agency INE said.

    Spain's jobless rate has risen sharply during the economic downturn and is the highest in the eurozone.
