Biden: No one closer to me than Bibi ~ link ~ WHAT A TOTAL WHORE JOE BIDEN IS! That the Vice-President of the United States of America is such a bought-and-paid-for political whore that he says no Israeli PM is closer to him that the current extremist leader of tiny Israel is completely outrageous and shameful in the extreme. Netanyahu will go down in history as the one expansionist leader that caused the most humans to die (in the war he caused) in all of human history, in fact the war that he will ignite will kill more of us than all other wars combined. And Biden sucks up to him big time...sickening! Stirling
He described the US-Israeli ties as "literally unbreakable" and said, "We are absolutely, unequivocally committed to Israel's security."
Biden said US support for Israel would continue and stressed that any threat to Israel's security and right to existence would be met with "unshakable resistance from the United States."
Bibi can take US into war with Iran ~ link ~ A former CIA member says the Israeli premier can take US into war with Iran but Washington is not prepared for such a confrontation.
Mounting US war threats against Iran ~ link ~ I believe that the plan is to make sure that the talks with Iran "fail" and then to go from there into a strike on Iran, which will from Day One become a General Middle East War and very quickly become World War III/Armageddon. This is apt to happen shortly before or shortly after the Christmas Season. Hope and pray that I am wrong. Stirling
Nuclear Winter: Nuclear War would be an Unprecedented Human Catastrophe ~ link ~ Read this article, I dare you! Stirling
In the light of recent statements by both President Obama and Secretary of State Hillary Clinton, namely that "all options are on the table" with regard to the use of nuclear weapons against Iran and that these weapons are "harmless to civilians", we are publishing excerpts from Carl Sagan's indepth 1983 investigation on the implications of a nuclear war, including his pathbreaking analysis of Nuclear Winter.
In "The Nuclear Winter" (1983), Sagan explored the unforeseen and devastating physical and chemical effects of even a small-scale nuclear war on the earth's biosphere and life on earth.
Nuclear war is not front page news, compared to the H1N1 or the routine Al Qaeda terror alerts.
Be advised that the US-NATO-Israel military alliance plans to use nuclear weapons and the corporate media has been instructed not to discuss the devastating consequences.

California's Legislative Analyst's Office, California's nonpartisan fiscal and policy advisor, is out with their latest financial projections.
For the fiscal year 2010-11 (ended June 30), the office projects a deficit of $6.1 billion followed by a $19.3 billion deficit for the 2011-12 fiscal year.
A Time To Act: Jail the Financial Fraudsters ~ link ~ Long time past to act. The fact that not even one Wall Street bankster has even been called before a Grand Jury, much less indicted, even much less tried and convicted and sent to prison, is evidence that America is now totally in the hands of the most evil corrupt scum imaginable.

Profits or Prosperity? ~ link ~ link ~
Data on US profits for the second quarter of this year are well worth studying, not only for what they say about the health of the corporate sector, but also for what they reveal about the structure of our economic system and the priorities of our policy makers.
Commerce Department figures show that after-tax profits rose 3.9% from the first quarter and a staggering 26.5% from the same quarter in 2009. This year-to-year percentage growth is the highest ever recorded by the Commerce Department without factoring for inflation. (The figure is even more impressive given that virtually none of the growth is due to inflation over the last year!)
Perhaps even more telling is the percentage of national income accounted for by profits. Well over 9% of national income in the second quarter of 2010 counted as profits, the 3rd highest portion since 1947. Interestingly, the percentage of national income was only marginally higher in two quarters of 2006 when the unemployment rate was 4.6% at the peak of the last economic expansion.
Analyzing the data, The Wall Street Journal (10-4-10) concluded that those corporations making up the Standard and Poor’s top 500 corporations – the core of monopoly capital – actually grew by 38%, returning $189 billion or 15.6% of all after-tax profit.
WSJ analysts underline the profit trends by noting that profits are up 10% over 2008 though revenues are down 6%. Monopoly corporations now make 8.4 cents on every dollar of revenue, when they made only 7 cents on every dollar in 2008.

The "Current Housing Recession is Rivaling the Great Depression's Real Estate Downturn [and] Will Easily Eclipse It In the Coming Months" ~ link ~ During the Great Depression, home prices fell 25.9 percent in five years. The U.S. housing market is now down around 25 percent from its peak in 2006.
UK Supreme Court rejects 'parliamentary privilege' expenses scandal appeal ~ link ~ I believe that these MPs were crooks, but the denial of the right of Parliament itself, to only try the men, is a dangerous thing. The right of Parliamentary Privilege was not meant as a benefit or perk but as a defense against Royal (now Prime Ministerial) authority run amok. Stirling
Ireland's crisis flares as investors dump bonds ~ link
Ireland's financial troubles loomed large Wednesday as investors — betting that the country soon could join Greece in seeking a bailout from the European Union — drove the interest rate on the country's 10-year borrowing to a new high.
The yield, or interest rate, on 10-year bonds rose above 8 percent for the first time since the launch of the euro, the European Union's common currency, 11 years ago.

Lessons of the Great Depression of the 1930s: Create Jobs by Executive Order ~ link ~ The reason that this is not being done today, is that the hidden powers, the global banking cartel, do NOT want it done. They want the people to suffer and to willing accept their "solution" to the problems, which will be the New World Order. This is their standard method of operation, known as the Hegelian Dialectic (Thesis/Anti-Thesis/Synthesis or Problem/Reaction/Solution). Stirling
Escaping Reality: Sweet Hallucinations Of A Lost American Dream ~ link ~
There was a time when our country succeeded because of the hard work of every man and woman. We made products and had valuable goods and services to offer the world. Yet there was a change that took place by our trusted government officials and they began to move our nation towards debt and exploitation. Every weaker nation on earth was our prey and the military and supporting corporations leaned on them and forced them to do their bidding. Also see: The Death of the American Dream ~ link ~

Independence criminalized: The Great Wall of Bureaucracy Comes to America ~ link ~
If people let government decide what foods they eat and what medicines they take, their bodies will soon be in as sorry a state as are the souls of those who live under tyranny. -- Thomas Jefferson
Today's elite seem to have learned from the messy approach of Mao, for instance (the boot in the face of 1984), and have opted for a similar eradication campaign, but they are doing so largely through excessive regulations coordinated between private companies and government. These policies and regulations are handed down by political and corporate leadership, and have become de facto laws enforced by compromised judges. This forms the foundation of classical bureaucracy.
Unlike Mao's collectivist state, today's state of America is pure Fascism. From both authoritarian sides, however, the independent-minded are squeezed -- the man who believes his home to be his castle; the woman who wishes to be free of the boys' club corporate rule; those who have unacceptable ideas like peace and feedom; or simply those who wish to be left the hell alone and not be branded a terrorist. There is no better example of this than the control over food production and distribution, as this is at the heart of what it means to be truly independent.
Beware of GMSs: Genes Remain a Mystery to Scientists ~ link ~
As scientists are busy manipulating the genes of edibles including corn, soybeans, canola, papaya, zucchini, and now rice and salmon, an interesting fact comes into light about what exactly scientists know and don't know about human genes. According to geneticist Steven Salzberg of the University of Maryland, "Not only do we not know what all the genes are - we don't even know how many there are."
Genetically manipulated foods have been found to change the genetic structure of our healthy bacteria - and this makes one wonder if GMO foods might be altering our own genetic make-up as well. But if they are, how would we know? By a geneticist's own words, scientists can't even find all of our genes - let alone know what they all do or how they'll act if they are changed. In addition, one gene often controls several different things - and with scientists not even knowing all of the genes we have, it makes it pretty difficult to know where to look when things start going wrong - and next to impossible to fix.
Fermi Telescope finds giant structure in our Galaxy ~ link ~ NASA's Fermi Gamma-ray Space Telescope has unveiled a previously unseen structure centered in the Milky Way. The feature spans 50,000 light-years and may be the remnant of an eruption from a supersized black hole at the center of our galaxy.
