Congressman: Reactor #2 Has Melted Down ~ link ~
In an interesting "he said, she said" situation, Reuters noted:
The core at Japan's Fukushima nuclear reactor has melted through the reactor pressure vessel, Democratic Congressman Edward Markey told a hearing on the nuclear disaster on Wednesday.
"I have been informed by the Nuclear Regulatory Commission that the core of Unit Two has gotten so hot that part of it has probably melted through the reactor pressure vessel," said Markey, a prominent nuclear critic in the House of Representatives.
However, the NRC is denying this. Reuters subsequently reported:

US Officials Confirm Israeli Attack in Sudan ~ link ~ This tiny nation reaches out, using American money and weapons, and attacks whoever they feel like to continue their virtual enslavement of the Arabs in the Gaza Strip.  Stirling     


US officials have confirmed today that the attack against a convoy of trucks in Sudan was in fact carried out by Israeli warplanes. The attack destroyed the entire convoy, killing 39 people. Israeli officials had declined to confirm the attack, though Prime Minister Olmert used the report to underscore Israel’s ability to launch attacks on targets “anywhere.”

The officials, citing classified intelligence, claimed that there had been intelligence reports that an operative from Iran’s Islamic Revolutionary Guards Corps was in Sudan at the time, coordinating the effort to smuggle weapons into the Gaza Strip.


Gordon Duff: NYC Dirty Bomb "Drill" - Largest In National History...Is It a Drill? ~ link ~ Let's hope it is just a drill...but what about 'next time'.  Stirling    




China's gonna' get it if warmongers have their way ~ link ~ To have a world war China and Russia have to be involved, and the global banking cartel intends to have a new world war soon.  Stirling       


Libyan Intervention Fraught With Risks ~ link ~ There are many practical reasons why the U.S. military attack on Libya is a bad idea—including that Libya has nothing to do with American vital interests, that helping an unknown opposition is fraught with risks of getting something worse than Moammar Gadhafi, and that the United States was overstretched militarily (already conducting two other wars) and financially (suffering from huge budget deficits and national debt)—but the interventionists have claimed that bombing Gadhafi will save Libyans’ lives.

Of course, this last argument was always hard to square with U.S. military aid to allied Arab dictators, for example, the leaders of Yemen and Bahrain, who were also killing their people. Another question should have arisen: Exactly how many Libyan civilians has Gadhafi actually killed? No one seems to know. During the U.S. justification for bombing Serbia and Kosovo in 1999, the Clinton administration wildly exaggerated the body count of Slobodan Milosevic’s ethnic cleansing of Albanians as a rationale for the air attack. Perhaps for this reason, no estimates of Gadhafi’s carnage have been floated this time around. 



French Fraud Behind Libya War Drive ~ link ~ The Libyan war has the French, of all people, in the forefront, with President Nicolas Sarkozy’s smug, self-satisfied face mugging for the camera as French fighter jets scream in the skies over Tripoli. The French, who sat out the Iraq war with haughty disdain, are now even more eager than the Americans to get into the thick of it: Sarkozy, in trouble at home, is hoping to distract critics from France’s ever-worsening domestic economic woes and his own party’s diminishing electoral prospects, with a good old-fashioned dollop of Napoleonic tonic. France – once again thrusting into North Africa in search of its former imperial glory! It’s enough to make one nostalgic for the Ugly American.

If the insufferable Sarkozy isn’t enough to make you vow never to eat French fries again, then the man behind Sarkozy’s grandstanding, Bernard Henri-Lévy, the French “public intellectual” and renowned phony, will push you over the edge into outright Francophobia. As the New York Times reports: 



US Senate defeats bill hitting Obama on Libya ~ link ~ The best political whores that money can buy.  Stirling   

WASHINGTON (AFP) - The US Senate on Tuesday easily swept aside a symbolic but politically potent measure declaring that President Barack Obama's decision to intervene militarily in Libya violated the US Constitution.

Lawmakers voted 90-10 to table, or kill, a resolution by Republican Senator Rand Paul that attacked Obama using his own words about the US Congress's constitutional prerogative to declare war.





Obama Eyes General Petraeus As Next CIA Director ~ link ~ The shuffle is coming because two top officials, Joint Chiefs of Staff head Admiral Michael Mullen and Defense Secretary Robert Gates are both planning to retire in the summer. While Petraeus is said to prefer taking over for Mullen, it seems that President Obama has other ideas on the matter.

Under the reported change, Gen. James Cartwright would replace Admiral Mullen, while current CIA Director Leon Panetta would replace Gates as Defense Secretary. This would free up the position of CIA director for Petraeus, who is said to be open to the idea, even if it isn’t his first choice. Though military leaders have run the CIA in the past it seems that for Petraeus it is really a consolation prize after being passed up for the Joint Chiefs spot.



France's Role in Three Conflicts Displays A More Muscular Policy ~ link ~ Actually, what it 'displays' is the Rothschild/global banking families efforts - as carried out by puppets such as Sarkozy - to bring about their long-sought fascist high-tech police state the New World Order.  Of course, this will also involve a new world war, to 'thin the herd' of us 'unnecessary eaters'.  Stirling      

France on Tuesday found itself engaged in three shooting wars at once for the first time in memory, indicating a new muscularity in using power by the politically embattled French president, Nicolas Sarkozy. 

French peacekeeping troops attacked the presidential palace in Ivory Coast in support of the United Nations overnight, while French planes were attacking the troops of the Libyan leader, Col. Muammar el-Qaddafi. French forces are also fighting alongside the United States in the war against the Taliban in Afghanistan.  



This Is What Resistance Looks Like ~ linkWe will not halt the laying off of teachers and other public employees, the slashing of unemployment benefits, the closing of public libraries, the reduction of student loans, the foreclosures, the gutting of public education and early childhood programs or the dismantling of basic social services such as heating assistance for the elderly until we start to carry out sustained acts of civil disobedience against the financial institutions responsible for our debacle. The banks and Wall Street, which have erected the corporate state to serve their interests at our expense, caused the financial crisis. The bankers and their lobbyists crafted tax havens that account for up to $1 trillion in tax revenue lost every decade. They rewrote tax laws so the nation’s most profitable corporations, including Bank of America, could avoid paying any federal taxes. They engaged in massive fraud and deception that wiped out an estimated $40 trillion in global wealth. The banks are the ones that should be made to pay for the financial collapse. Not us. And for this reason at 11 a.m. April 15 I will join protesters in Union Square in New York City in front of the Bank of America.

“The political process no longer works,” Kevin Zeese, the director of Prosperity Agenda and one of the organizers of the April 15 event, told me. “The economy is controlled by a handful of economic elites. The necessities of most Americans are no longer being met. The only way to change this is to shift the power to a culture of resistance. This will be the first in a series of events we will organize to help give people control of their economic and political life.




 



US Court of Appeals Strengthens Warrantless Searches at Border ~ link ~ More and more the "Land of the Free" is becoming just another globalists fascist state.  Stirling     

The authorities may seize laptops, cameras and other digital devices at the U.S. border without a warrant, and scour through them for days hundreds of miles away, a federal appeals court ruled.

The 2-1 decision Wednesday by the 9th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals comes as the government is increasingly invoking its broad, warrantless search-and-seizure powers at the U.S. border to probe the digital lives of travelers.



Massive Cuts in Social Security to Finance the Pentagon's "Cybersecurity" Gravy Train ~ link ~ This is easy to understand.  Social Security takes care of the elderly and the disabled, but people do not count anymore in America or most of the world under the banksters; however, the intelligence services are important in spying on the people for the global banking families, hence they get all the money they need and more.  Take the time to read the entire article at the link, its worth your time.  Stirling     



The World Socialist Web Site avers, with troglodytic Republicans demanding some $61 billion in social spending cuts at the behest of crazed Tea Party groups bankrolled by billionaires, "progressive" Democrats have agreed to meet their henchmen half-way across the aisle, a process called "splitting the difference" that will result in "cuts of approximately $33 billion."

"A bipartisan group of 64 senators, 32 from each party, signed a joint letter to Obama," Martin observes, urging the president "to 'engage' personally in talks on long-term deficit reduction, which would include major cuts in Social Security, Medicare and Medicaid, the three most costly federal social programs."


Want to guess who's demanding more from an ever-dwindling federal pie, largely the result of multiple imperial wars to steal other people's resources, corporate bailouts, tax cuts for the filthy rich and a National Surveillance State that views the American people as their deadliest enemy?

In plain English: private contractors, including some of the largest U.S. defense and security firms, are busy as proverbial bees designing malware for the secret state; insidious, undetectable applications that can transform an individual's laptop or smart phone into a component of a malicious botnet under cover of "cyber defense."

Polls Reveals Baby Boomers' Retirement Fears ~ linkThis is what happens to an entire generation when most people are more interested in sports or the latest television entertainment than in learning what is really happening in the world around them.  Stirling     

The 77 million-strong generation born between 1946 and 1964 has clung tenaciously to its youth. Now, boomers are getting nervous about retirement. Only 11 percent say they are strongly convinced they will be able to live in comfort.

A total of 55 percent said they were either somewhat or very certain they could retire with financial security. Yet a substantial 44 percent express little or no faith they'll have enough money when their careers end.


NGOs Call for IMF Gold Profits to Cancel Debts of Poorest Nations ~ link ~ Don't hold your breath waiting for this to happen.  Stirling   

Nearly 60 international civil society organizations urged the executive board of the International Monetary Fund (IMF) Monday to earmark some 2.8 billion dollars in profits from the agency’s gold sales for canceling the debts of the world’s poorest nations.

In a joint statement, the groups, which included ActionAid International, Oxfam International, the International Trade Union Confederation, and the global Jubilee networks, said the profits should be used to help poor indebted countries weather external shocks, including the 2008-2009 financial crisis and, more recently, the sharp rise in global food and fuel prices.


Portugal downgraded by Moody's on further debt concerns ~ link ~ Ratings agency Moody's has downgraded Portuguese government debt by one notch, to Baa1 from A3, and warned that a further cut may be necessary.

This is the second downgrade by Moody's in less than a month and follows fellow agency Standard & Poor's cut last week.


A McDonald's Economy ~ link ~ Those exact same mega banks and Wall Street speculators, who were responsible for the financial meltdown, are also responsible for up to $1 trillion in tax revenue lost every decade. This lost revenue directly influences budgets and deep cuts to important domestic spending programs are the results: layoffs of school teachers and police officers, public library closures, public education and head start programs slashed and vulnerable groups like the elderly have been targeted with a reduction of allocated funds for home heating. Meanwhile, war expenditures are expected to increase and corporate subsidizes will continue to flow unhampered, to large multinational corporations; several of whom are demanding our workforce to accept further reductions in wages and benefits or have recently cut US jobs.

Speaker of the House John Boehner in a recent interview with Matt Taibbi for Rolling Stone perhaps best exemplifies the contemptuous attitude with which the financial elite hold for the working class. Boehner, accused the unemployed of being lazy and along with the poor, held them responsible for America's economic decline. Those who practice revisionist history are already hard at work, manufacturing consent for their shameless attack on the middle class programs, insisting that our current recession was never due to the reckless banking practices of a few banks and Wall Street or the government which deregulated it, but instead it was all due to a sense of entitlement from the average American.

Skin cancer rates triple among young Scots ~ link ~ White people look better with a nice tan, but the sun exposure is dangerous for us.  Stirling     

The number of young Scots succumbing to the deadliest form of skin cancer has more than tripled since the 1970s, new figures have shown.

Cancer Research UK said that in the UK as a whole, more than two people under the age of 35 were diagnosed with malignant melanoma every day. However, in Scotland rates of the cancer were significantly higher than the UK average.

Early movie of San Francisco - 104 years ago - video ~ link ~ I ran this some months ago, but saw it yesterday, and thought that I would re-run it.  Keep in mind, that ALL of the people in it are now dead (my grandparents and great-grandparents generations); our time on this world is short.  We should at least make some serious effort to make things better for future generations in our time here, before we meet our Maker.  Stirling
