Grain supplies affected as Victoria flooding disrupts rail, GrainCorp says ~ link ~ Wheat exports from Australia, the fourth-biggest shipper, may be curbed as floods in Victoria state add to transport disruptions in the country’s north amid continued harvest problems, Commonwealth Bank of Australia said. Logistical issues and price premiums for Australian wheat could reduce the bank’s December export forecast of 14 million metric tons in 2010-2011, Luke Mathews, a commodity strategist at the Sydney-based company said by phone today.

Heavy rainfall has inundated Victoria, following flooding in Queensland that devastated homes, destroyed crops, closed mines and killed at least 28 people in the past six weeks. Record wet weather in the second half of last year, linked to a La Nina event, cut crop quality and delayed harvesting.
“The issues that have been encountered since November last year have contributed to Australian wheat being the most expensive in the world for prompt delivery, and that does reflect the harvest delays, the quality declines and the production losses that have been the direct result of La Nina,” Mathews said.

Milling wheat for March delivery on the Australian Securities Exchange traded at A$327.40 ($323) a ton at 2:52 p.m. Sydney time. The March-delivery contract on the Chicago Board of Trade closed at $7.7325 a bushel on Jan. 14, or $284.12 a ton, according to Bloomberg calculations. Australia may ship 13.5 million tons of wheat in the year ending Sept. 30, the U.S. Department of Agriculture forecast on Jan. 13, down from its previous estimate of 15 million tons and compared with its estimate of 14.8 million tons in the past year. 

Global food chain stretched to the limit ~ link ~
Strained by rising demand and battered by bad weather, the global food supply chain is stretched to the limit, sending prices soaring and sparking concerns about a repeat of food riots last seen three years ago. Signs of the strain can be found from Australia to Argentina, Canada to Russia. On Friday, Tunisia's president fled the country after trying to quell deadly riots in the North African country by slashing prices on food staples.

"We are entering a danger territory," Abdolreza Abbassian, chief economist at the U.N.'s Food and Agriculture Organization (FAO), said last week. "Situations have changed. The supply/demand structures have changed,” Abbassian told the Australian Broadcasting Corp. last week. "Certainly the kind of weather developments we have seen makes us worry a little bit more that it may last much, much longer. Are we prepared for it? Really this is the question."

The Great Food Crisis of 2011 ~ link ~ As the new year begins, the price of wheat is setting an all-time high in the United Kingdom. Food riots are spreading across Algeria. Russia is importing grain to sustain its cattle herds until spring grazing begins. India is wrestling with an 18-percent annual food inflation rate, sparking protests. China is looking abroad for potentially massive quantities of wheat and corn. The Mexican government is buying corn futures to avoid unmanageable tortilla price rises. And on January 5, the U.N. Food and Agricultural organization announced that its food price index for December hit an all-time high.

Is Tunisia the first domino to fall - with video ~ link

Tunisia forms national unity government amid unrest - with video ~ link ~ Tunisia has formed a national unity government, the country's prime minister has announced, days after a popular revolt ousted the president.
The prime minister, foreign, interior and defence ministers are to retain their jobs, with several opposition figures joining the government. PM Mohammed Ghannouchi pledged to allow greater political and media freedoms. Later the government said 78 people had been killed in recent violence, the highest official figure so far. Dozens of people were known to have died, but the government had previously announced lower figures than those alleged by human rights organisations.

Unveiling the new government, Mr Ghannouchi said all political parties would now be allowed to operate in Tunisia.
Political prisoners would be freed and the media would be permitted "total freedom", he added. "We have decided to free all the people imprisoned for their ideas, their beliefs or for having expressed dissenting opinions," the AFP news agency reported him as saying. The announcement of the new government included a pledge to abolish Tunisia's information ministry and to create a state where the media had "total freedom".

Muammar Gaddafi condemns Tunisia uprising ~ link ~
Muammar Gaddafi
In a speech last night Gaddafi, an ally of the ousted president, Zine al-Abidine Ben Ali, said he was "pained" by the fall of the Tunisian government. He claimed protesters had been led astray by WikiLeaks disclosures detailing the corruption in Ben Ali's family and his repressive regime.
The leaked cables were written by "ambassadors in order to create chaos", Deutsche Press-Agentur reported Gaddafi as saying.

Greed of the Tunisian president's wife that drove a nation onto the streets to start a revolution ~ link ~ This article, all the more makes me suspect that the earlier article, which I linked on the Mossad and CIA being behind the trouble, may be correct.  Of course, the ruling family was totally trash and food prices were going sky high, but the push seems to have first come from this Julian Assange, who I consider to be a Mossad/CIA operative.  Stirling    

WikiLeaks, the whistle-blowing website run by Julian Assange, played a role in the downfall of Tunisia’s ruling elite.  Leaked diplomatic cables from the U.S. ambassador in Tunis, describing the opulent lifestyle of President Ben Ali’s family and widespread corruption, fired up the nation’s youth and provoked the riots, which forced the President to flee. 

Four Algerians set selves on fire echoing Tunisia ~ link ~ At least four Algerians have set themselves on fire in the past five days, several newspapers reported on Monday, echoing the suicide that triggered the unrest that brought down the leader of neighbouring Tunisia. Algeria has seen violent demonstrations in several cities over the past several weeks against high food prices and unemployment, in parallel with demonstrations that brought down Tunisian president Zine al-Abidine Ben Ali on Friday.

The Tunisian protests were triggered in part by the death of 26-year-old vegetable seller Mohamed Bouazizi, who became a martyr to demonstrators when he died weeks after setting himself on fire because police had confiscated his vegetable cart.
Ben Ali's fall -- the first time in generations that an Arab leader has been toppled by public protests -- has sent a sharp signal to a region dominated by autocratic regimes. Protesters in other countries have made clear they see it as a model.

Official sources say two people have been killed and scores were injured during riots in recent weeks in Algeria. To calm the protests, Algeria has cut the cost of sugar and cooking oil.

Demonstrations have also taken place in other north African and Middle Eastern countries over high food prices, poor living conditions and a lack of political freedoms.
In Egypt, a man set himself on fire in front of parliament on Monday.

Dead Tunisian fruit and vegetable seller could unleash wave of revolutions in Africa ~ link ~ The grievances in Tunisia are similar to those elsewhere in North Africa: Rising prices, repression, grotesque corruption and unemployment.
  It is impossible to over-estimate the importance of this moment. Tunisia may be a small country of just ten million people, but the shock waves are being felt far away. A clutch of ageing despots in countries such as Egypt, Libya, Jordan and Algeria will be wondering nervously if they can prevent a rising tide of anger from turning into a wave of revolutions, just as in eastern Europe in 1989.

The consequences could be profound.

After Tunisia, the start of an Arab awakening ~ link ~ I am wondering if the story, that I linked yesterday about the Mossad being behind the revolution in Tunisia may, in fact, be the case.  Stirling  

An unemployed Algerian committed suicide by lighting himself on fire outside a government building in his North African country last week. A few days later, and over a thousand miles away, thousands of Jordanians took to their streets to protest rising food prices. Discontent among members of Egypt’s typically weak opposition led to chanting in Cairo this weekend, calling for President Hosni Mubarak – one of the longest serving leaders in the Middle East – to take the next flight out of the country. And on Monday, an Egyptian also attempted, but reportedly failed, to kill himself by self-immolation near the parliament building in Cairo.
Events like these have become more common across the Arab world since the ouster of Tunisia’s former president, Zine al-Abidine Ben Ali, on Friday, following a month-long surge of unrest that intensified into a popular uprising across the tiny North African nation. Shock waves, albeit small in comparison, are still resonating in capital cities from Rabat to Cairo.

Anger and frustration over economic woes, from unemployment to the price of commodities such as sugar and bread, seems to be energizing opposition groups eager to promote financial and political reform across the Arab world.

Tunisia and reshaping the Arab World ~ link ~ Here in Palestine, we face a relentless assault not only on us and our lands but on truth, on decency, on nature, on dignity, and, dare I say, on God. Israeli authorities are working overtime to transform the Holy City of Jerusalem from a multi-ethnic and multi-religious city to a distorted vision of what Zionists think Judaism is about (supremacy, ethnic purity, tribalism etc). They will be debating in the next few days a project for an additional 1400 “housing units” near Gilo colony.  The land targeted belongs to the village of Al-Walaja and the Town of Beit Jala. The Negev village of Al-Araqib was also just demolished for the 9th time*. More home and business demolitions were carried out in Jerusalem and the Jordan valley. Taking lands from Christians and Muslims, destroying over 2 million trees and countless homes and  businesses are not just war crimes but crimes against humanity. We must continue to challenge these destructive policies and demand the international community bring those responsible to justice. Please write to media, politicians, and all others (the internet allows you to get hundred of emails very quickly for decision makers).**

I think the empire’s hold on the Arab World has begun to unravel and I think we see in Tunisia the first spark of a revolution that will reshape the Arab world for the better and spell the end of repression. In 1948, the insertion of Israel in the Middle of the Arab world was designed to dominate the area, keep the people disjointed, disunited and ruled by (Western-appointed) dictators.  In 1953, the US and Britain engineered the coup that removed the democratically elected  government of Mousaddeq and placed the brutal Shah in power in Iran.  These moves worked for many years because people in the Arab world let them happen and offered limited resistance.  Things have been changing.  In retrospect, the year 1973 was pivotal as for the first time two Arab countries decided to fight to take back their stolen lands. Unfortunately, the US chose to save its monstrous creation from having to return all the stolen lands (and Sadat was willing to walk a separate line). Then came the nonviolent people’s revolution in Iran which got rid of the
Shah in 1979. Since then Israel and its benefactor has attempted in vain to crush any Arab resistance by might. Fom their invasion and occupation of Lebanon to invasion and occupation of Iraq, these evil forces attempted to keep the lid on Arab democracy and keep their hegemony.  Arab dictators were useful tools in implementing these destructive policies.  But many of us have long argued that these shenanigans will and must come to an end.

Tunisia gets new government, but revolution may be far from over ~ link
After weeks of deadly turmoil and mass protests, Tunisia might finally have a functioning government - but that does not mean the so-called Jasmine Revolution is over. Just three days after the country's dictator Zine El Abidine Ben Ali fled to Saudi Arabia after 23 years in power, those officials who remained behind - including politicians who for years were forced to operate clandestinely, as well as some of Ben Ali's key party faithfuls - pieced together a shaky coalition to run the country.

Shortly before Tunis's dusk-to-dawn curfew began on Monday, Prime Minister Mohammed Ghannouchi went on state television to announce that the interim unity government - which theoretically will run Tunisia until elections are held in six months time - will include some figures from Ben Ali's Constitutional Democratic Rally, or RCD, party. Those politicians will control the crucial defense, interior and foreign ministries - a sure sign that the President's influence, through the RCD, is not entirely over. And that is clearly not what many of the Tunisians who brought about the first successful revolution in the modern Arab world had in mind. Other opposition forces, including Islamist and Communist parties, remain outside the coalition and some key political figures are yet to return from exile. (See pictures of protesters in Tunisia.)

Tunisia unrest: Views from the country ~ link ~
Hundreds of troops are patrolling Tunis and a state of emergency is in force. Interim leader Mohammed Ghannouchi has said he would hold talks with opposition groups to try to form a unity government.

Scientists warn California could be struck by winter 'superstorm' ~ link ~ linkA group of more than 100 scientists and experts say in a new report that California faces the risk of a massive "superstorm" that could flood a quarter of the state's homes and cause $300 billion to $400 billion in damage. Researchers point out that the potential scale of destruction in this storm scenario is four or five times the amount of damage that could be wrought by a major earthquake.

It sounds like the plot of an apocalyptic action movie, but scientists with the U.S. Geological Survey warned federal and state emergency officials that California's geological history shows such "superstorms" have happened in the past, and should be added to the long list of natural disasters to worry about in the Golden State.

The threat of a cataclysmic California storm has been dormant for the past 150 years. Geological Survey director Marcia K. McNutt told the New York Times that a 300-mile stretch of the Central Valley was inundated from 1861-62. The floods were so bad that the state capital had to be moved to San Francisco, and Governor Leland Stanford had to take a rowboat to his own inauguration, the report notes. Even larger storms happened in past centuries, over the dates 212, 440, 603, 1029, 1418, and 1605, according to geological evidence.

Hariti tribunal: UN prosecutor issues sealed indictment ~ link ~ This indictment, which has been a long time in coming and which is likely to blame the wrong group, is apt to lead to a horrific war in the Middle East that will backfire on Israel.  That may be the real reason that the former Prime Minister Barak quit as Defense Minister.  He does not want the blame to fall on him.  Stirling   

The UN-backed Special Tribunal for Lebanon has not yet released names of suspects, and a pre-trial judge will now decide whether to issue warrants. Members of the armed Shia group Hezbollah are expected to be named.
Hezbollah, which denies any role in the killing, helped to bring down the government last week in a dispute over the tribunal.

The BBC's Middle East editor Jeremy Bowen says the tribunal's work has a much wider impact than finding out who assassinated Hariri. It is part of the big confrontation in the region between the US and and its allies on one side; and Syria, Iran and their allies on the other. Lebanon is calm at the moment, our correspondent says, but the worry is that events like these could be the spark that leads to violence.

Political earthquake in Israel as Defense Minister, Labor chief bolts party ~ link ~

Israel's Defense Minister and Labor Party Chairman Ehud Barak announced Monday morning that he decided to quit his lifelong political connection with the Labor Party, to create a new faction, the "Independence Party." Hours after Barak's move, Welfare and Social Services Minister Isaac Herzog, Minority Affairs Minister Avishay Braverman and Trade, Industry and Labor Minister Binyamin Ben-Eliezer announced their resignation from the government as well.

But for many Israeli lawmakers, "the news came like a thunderbolt out of the blue," according to several shocked Knesset parliamentarians speaking with local media.
Barak took with him four other Labor parliamentarians, leaving the party with eight Knesset members. With the new Independence Party's five Knesset members, Netanyahu's right-of-center coalition is still able keep a majority in the parliament.

A very public harbinger of the slow-motion tsunami overtaking Labor came at a major left-of-center demonstration against government policies held in Tel Aviv Saturday night. There, many in the estimated crowd of 10,000 protesters booed and hissed when Barak's name was mentioned. As well, the crisis where comes in the wake of a recent internal crisis in Labor, where many members expressed their disappointment over the current government's policies on the peace process, and appealed to the party to quit Netanyahu's ruling coalition.

Ahmadinejad also said, “The Zionist regime is seeking to take advantage of the current situation to undermine this country (Lebanon) and deal a blow to the (regional countries), so the regional countries should cooperatively try to find a solution to the current issues facing Lebanon.”

The Turkish prime minister said regional countries should make joint efforts to help establish stability in Lebanon.

“Iran and Turkey along with other regional countries are able to play a role” in helping the Lebanese to control crisis in their country, Erdogan said.

Ahmadinejad talks with Saudi King on phone ~ link ~ I may be misreading this, but I do believe that the Iranians and Arabs (on all sides) are really trying to prevent this Israeli/American attempt at starting a war from working.  Time will tell if they are successful.  Stirling    

In his phone conversation on Friday, President Ahmadinejad said that close collaboration among regional countries can help the efforts to enhance security in the Middle-East.

King Abdullah thanked Ahmadinejad and said he hoped the Iranian government and people would enjoy success and prosperity.

The king, who is about 86 years old, flew to New York on November 22, where he underwent a back surgery.

Israel set for another war on Gaza ~ link
The reports suggest that Tel Aviv is planning to launch another war on Gaza, which has yet to recover from the December 2008-January 2009 war Israel launched on the impoverished strip.

Israel has increased and intensified its attacks on Gaza over the past few months, with many Palestinians killed or injured in the assaults.

In December, at least five people were killed in an Israeli airstrike on the town of Deir al-Balah in central Gaza. This was one of the deadliest attacks since the December 2008-January 2009 war, a Press TV correspondent reported.

The 22-day Israeli onslaught took the lives of more than 1,400 Palestinians, mostly civilians, in the populated coastal strip and left thousands more injured. It also inflicted over USD 1.6 billion in damages on the territory's economy.

Tel Aviv laid an economic siege on the Gaza Strip in June 2007 after Hamas took control of the coastal sliver.

Israel may be on the eve of revolution ~ link ~ Or it may not be.  Stirling   

Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu yesterday characterized the popular revolution in Tunisia as an example of "instability in our region." While Western leaders (and the Arab League!) praise the great achievement of the freedom struggle and the ousting of a tyrannical despot, Netanyahu does not see achievement in civil protest. He only wants "stability to return," with or without freedom.

Perhaps he actually does see, and that is why he didn't say anything. Dr. Daniel Zisenwine is a research fellow at the Moshe Dayan Center for Middle Eastern and African Studies, of Tel Aviv University, specializing in North Africa. He explained in an interview that it was not the political opposition that brought down President Zine al-Abidine Ben Ali: "They are only fragments of parties, in a very weak position ... and mainly busy fighting among themselves." Sound familiar? The strong elements in Tunisia, Zisenwine said, are the trade unions and nongovernmental organizations, which "suddenly woke up and could awaken public life in the country a little more." Maybe that's why Netanyahu is backing up Lieberman's remarks and actions with regard to human rights organizations. He is "afraiiid," as Netanyahu once famously said about the left.

Chinese Troops Stationed in North Korea Special Zone ~ link ~ Chinese troops have been stationed in the special economic zone of Rajin-Sonbong in North Korea, sources said Friday. This would be the first time since Chinese troops withdrew from the Military Armistice Commission in the truce village of Panmunjom in December 1994 that they have been stationed in the North.

"Pyongyang and Beijing have reportedly discussed the matter of stationing a small number of Chinese troops in the Rajin-Sonbong region to guard port facilities China has invested in," a Cheong Wa Dae official said. "If it's true, they're apparently there to protect either facilities or Chinese residents rather than for political or military reasons."

Avi Shlaim on the Neoconservative Middle East War Agenda ~ link ~ “The basic premise behind George W. Bush’s policy towards the Middle East reflected this strong pro-Israeli bias,” Shlaim opines. “The premise was that the key issue in Middle East politics was not Palestine, but Iraq.” (p. 297)    This is the essence of my thesis, but it is something many establishment people, including those who have been antiwar, ardently deny when they claim that the elimination of Saddam  not only harmed  Israeli interests by empowering Iran, but that this result  was clearly foreseen by  Israelis and supporters of Israel prior to the attack on Iraq and that the government of Israel thus allegedly opposed the war.  The Transparent Cabal, of course, shows that the entire neocon war agenda in the Middle East was directed to advancing Israel’s security by weakening its enemies and that Israeli leaders did, in fact, promote the war on Iraq.   Of course, in the United States, any  claim that American Jews promote Israeli interests, no matter how well adduced, invariably elicits accusations of anti-Semitism.

“American proponents of the war on Iraq promised that action against Iraq would form part of a broader engagement with the problems of the Middle East,” Shlaim notes.  “The road to Jerusalem, they argued, went through Baghdad.  Cutting off Saddam Hussein’s support for Palestinian terrorism was, according to them, an essential first step in the quest for a settlement.” (p. 297)  Later he observes:  “One of the main arguments for regime change in Baghdad was to put an end to Iraqi support for Palestinian militants and for what was seen as Palestinian intransigence in the peace process with Israel.” (p. 300)

As I point out in The Transparent Cabal, the neocons maintained that it was the removal of not only Saddam, but most “non-democratic” regimes in the Middle East, which was necessary to bring about a  peaceful settlement of the Palestinian issue.  However, the “peace” the neocons had in mind was one dictated by Israel. Elimination of the Middle Eastern “non-democratic” regimes would facilitate this development because it was just these regimes  that provided moral and material support to the Palestinian resistance, portrayed by the neocons as “Palestinian intransigence.” 

Hezbollah's Nasrallah could be right ~ link
ScreenHunter_22 Jan. 17 13.44
It’s not impossible that Hezbollah’s leader Hassan Nasrallah was right when he described the tribunal investigating the assassination of Lebanon’s Prime Minister Rafik Hariri in 2005 as “an American and Israeli tool”. Though I myself see Israel’s military and political leaders as those with most to gain – I mean thinking they have most to gain – from a successful attempt to pin  the blame on Hezbollah.

When their unopposed air force devastated large parts of Lebanon’s infrastructure (as well as Hezbollah’s headquarters area of Beirut) in 2006, Israel’s leaders thought that by doing so they would turn the Lebanese army and Christian and Sunni militias against Hezbollah. In other words, by massively punishing all of Lebanon, Israel’s leaders believed they could push the Lebanese army and Christian and Sunni militias into doing the Zionist state’s dirty work.

But once again Israeli strategy (state terrorism pure and simple) backfired. Israel’s 2006 war united the Lebanese (more or less) and Hezbollah came out of it stronger not weaker. (It’s worth remembering that Hezbollah would not have come into existence if Israel had not invaded Lebanon all the way to Beirut in 1982 and remained in occupation of the south. Just as Hamas would not have come into existence if Israel had been prepared to do the two-state business with Arafat).

Israeli Stuxnet virus attack: Russia warns of 'Iranian Chernobyl' ~ link

Russian nuclear scientists are providing technical assistance to Iran's attempts activate the country's first nuclear power plant at the Gulf port. But they have raised serious concerns about the extensive damage caused to the plant's computer systems by the mysterious Stuxnet virus, which was discovered last year and is widely believed to have been the result of a sophisticated joint US-Israeli cyber attack.

According to Western intelligence reports, Russian scientists warned the Kremlin that they could be facing "another Chernobyl" if they were forced to comply with Iran's tight deadline to activate the complex this summer.

Atlantic Ocean Capable of Dramatic Changes ~ link ~
Scientists have long assumed that the long-lasting and severe cold spells in Europe that have taken place since the Last Glacial Maximum some 10,000 to 20,000 years ago have been the result of changes in the circulation of the Atlantic Ocean currents.

New research led by Cardiff University has now shown that ocean circulation changes may have been even more dramatic than previously assumed.

The new findings, which have been published in the latest edition of the journal Science, show that since the end of the Last Glacial Maximum the formation of deep water in the North-East Atlantic Ocean has repeatedly switched on and off, causing the climate to warm and cool for centuries at a time.

But inflation in the eurozone is now up to 2.2 per cent, above the European Central Bank's target. In the UK it is at an uncomfortable 3.3 per cent (4.7 per cent in RPI terms), forcing the Governor of the Bank of England to write apologetic letters to the Chancellor explaining why the hallowed 2.0 per cent target is being overshot.

Levels of economic activity in the Western world remain relatively depressed and there's little in the way of wage pressure. So why are prices rising? Economists used to argue that there were only two types of inflation: "demand pull" and "cost push". If demand was too high, prices would rise. If costs were driven up, again prices would rise. In the absence of these forces, inflation was supposed to remain well-behaved. Recent events, however, give pause for thought.

Although US inflation is still relatively low, America's recent experience is nevertheless consistent with developments in the eurozone and the UK. The gap between headline and core inflation has widened, a consequence of higher food and energy prices. These, in turn, are a reflection of booming demand for commodities. Gold, base metals, oil or food, prices have surged over the last couple of years. Given the lack of decent economic recovery in the developed world, this looks odd.

True State of the Economy - You'd Better Be Darn Scared ~ link ~ The damnable lies that continue out of lazy, corrupt media mouthpieces regarding the true state of the economy is nothing short of reprehensible. We expect politicians to lie every time they open their mouths. We expect ethically bankrupt crooks like Ben Bernanke and Timothy Geithner to lie every time they open their mouth to protect their banking interests. However, a free media is supposed to be the watch dog for government corruption and report the facts, not propaganda. Not so for a long, long time for what is known as the "mainstream" media. Fools they are because like tens of millions of others, they will also be reduced to penury. Lackeys for their corporate masters no longer question numbers; perhaps they are as ignorant as the majority of adults in this country when it comes to fiat currency and taxation.
The pathological liar camped out in the White House recently upchucked, "'We're digging ourselves out of a hole"' when the fake unemployment numbers allegedly show the jobless rate had dropped to the lowest level for 19 months. Bernanke, master in the art of deception, was pumping more false hope last month: "The Chairman of the Federal Reserve Ben Bernanke says until the U.S. economic system is completely stabilized, the country will be slow to climb completely out of its latest recession and that could mean high unemployment rates for a few more years. A native of Dillon, Bernanke made the remarks during a rare interview on CBS, "60 Minutes, which aired Sunday night."

Geithner says the U.S. government is broke, but look at his role in facilitating the coming collapse! Everything done by the private banking cartel [FED] with the full cooperation of Geithner is exactly the same destructive path taken by FDR. One of the most accurate and comprehensive writings on how the "New Deal" made the situation even worse back during the "Great" Depression is a piece by Lawrence W. Reed titled, Great Myths of the Great Depression. You will see the same programs touted by the communist in the White House are near twins of the failures promoted by FDR. While Lawrence's piece is 16 pages, it is well worth the time to get a good education on what didn't work and actually prolonged the depression by a decade. We are reliving history.

Housing Market Plunge Passes Great Depression Levels ~ link ~ Home prices fell for the 53rd straight month in November, taking the decline past that of the Great Depression for the first time in the prolonged housing slump, according to

Prices have fallen 26 percent since their peak in 2006, exceeding the 25.9 percent drop registered in the five years between 1928 and 1933, the housing data company reports.
The word comes on the heels of figures showing banks repossessed more than one million homes in the U.S. last year -- and they're expected to take back even more this year. 

US debt tops $14 TRILLION, near legal ceiling ~ link ~ If we just printed the money, instead of having the privately owned Federal Reserve create the money and lend it to us for years and years of interest payments, there would be NO DEBT.  Stirling  

The United States just passed a dubious milestone: Government debt surged to an all-time high, passing $14 trillion - $45,300 for every person in the country.
That means Congress soon will have to lift the legal debt ceiling to give the almost maxed-out government an even higher credit limit or dramatically cut spending to stay under the current cap. Either way, a fight is ahead on Capitol Hill, inflamed by the passions of tea party activists and deficit hawks.

Former NSA Chief Called CIA 'Out of Control' ~ link ~ Sadly few things to do with the federal government or the economy in America are not out of control.  Stirling    

“The CIA currently doesn’t work for anyone. It thinks it works for the president, but it doesn’t and it’s out of control,” says a report summarizing remarks made by Odom, a retired three-star general who served as director of the NSA from 1985 to 1988.

Odom, who also served on the National Security Council staff during the Carter administration, was known as an outspoken advocate for intelligence reform. He died in 2008.
The 2003 interview, among others conducted by the 9/11 Commission, was posted on the website Cryptome, which is often compared to the secret-spilling WikiLeaks website. The report was not a leak, however, but one of many records relating to the 9/11 Commission that have been released and made available on the National Archives website.
