UK alone as EU agrees on fiscal deal ~ link ~ European leaders say 26 out of 27 EU member states have backed a tax and budget pact to tackle the eurozone debt crisis. Only the UK has said it will not join. Prime Minister David Cameron said he had to protect key British interests, including its financial markets. The 17 countries that use the euro have all agreed to the deal.

Pakistani editorial says Nuclear War with India "Inevitable" as water dispute continues ~ link ~ If these two nations alone ever have a all-out exchange of 'nukes' it will likely plunge the Northern Hemisphere into a Nuclear Winter; additionally, the nuclear fallout would kill one to two billion human beings!  Stirling        
Bashir Ahmad, a geologist in Srinagar, Kashmir commented grimly about the Indians’ future intentions, “They will switch the Indus off to make Pakistan solely dependent on India. It’s going to be a water bomb.” A more dispassionate report by America’s Senate last February offered still a similar assessment, noting, “The cumulative effect of (the dam) projects could give India the ability to store enough water to limit the supply to Pakistan at crucial moments in the growing season” before concluding that dams are a source of “significant bilateral tension.”

How many dams and hydroelectric reports? The Senate report counted 33 hydroelectric projects in the border area, a number that Pakistani analysts nearly double to 60, which according to the state’s chief minister, Omar Abdullah, will add an extra 3,000 megawatts to the national power grid by 2019.

Pakistan’s vulnerability is underwritten by the fact that, like Egypt it exists around a single great river, although the Indus is nearly twice the Nile’s size when it reaches the sea. The Indus provides water to over 80 percent of Pakistan’s 54 million acres of irrigated land, via a canal system largely built by the British.

Risk of Israeli/US strike on Iran has tripled says Barclays Capital ~ link ~ The nuts in the Netanyahu Administration want a General Middle East War; the globalists want a Third World War to usher in their New World Order.  Bad combination!  Stirling     

On Thursday U.S. President Barack Obama said the United States was considering all options on Iran and would work with allies, including Israel, to prevent Tehran from acquiring a nuclear weapon.

Iran says its nuclear program is only to meet energy needs, and is not aimed at acquiring nuclear weapons.

Russian Deputy Foreign Minister: No military components exists in Iran's nuclear program ~ link ~ Little details, like the truth, are not important to Netanyahu or the globalists.  They want WAR, MORE WAR, AND EVEN MORE WAR and they damn well intend to get it!   Stirling   

Downed US stealth spy drone in Iran reveals broader covert war   ~ linkIran’s recovery of a downed U.S. surveillance drone publicized America’s ongoing covert war on Iran, a part of the Obama administration’s strategy even more bellicose than his predecessor’s.

U.S. actions towards Iran are being couched as an attempt to prevent their attainment of nuclear weapons, despite a failure to put forth a shred of evidence that a weapons program is underway.

Shocking charts and statistics that prove that America is no longer a wealthy nation ~ link ~ Actually, if we got read of the Fed and and globalism, and did a few other things that would make good sense, in a few months we would be living in the greatest period of prosperity in our history.   Stirling     
How do you decide whether you are wealthy or not?  Do you determine that by how much money you spend at the stores?  Of course not.  You can tell if you are wealthy or not by comparing your assets (the money in your bank account, equity in your home, etc.) to your liabilities (your mortgage, credit card debt, student loan debt, etc.).  Well, a lot of Americans seem to believe that just because a lot of money is circulating in our economy that it must mean that we are a wealthy nation.  But that is simply not true.  To tell whether or not America is a wealthy nation, you need to look at the balance sheet numbers.  And when you look at the balance sheet numbers, a very sobering story emerges.  Over the past three decades, government debt, business debt and household debt have absolutely exploded, but our assets have not.  That means that we are getting poorer as a nation.  Hopefully the shocking charts and statistics in this article will help a lot of Americans to wake up.  Yes, we once were the wealthiest nation on earth, but today America is no longer a wealthy nation.

Pulling Back the Curtain on the Wall Street Money Machine ~ link ~ Kill the Fed, break up the "Too Big To Fail Banks", put the crooks in prison, end the wars, take money out of politics, end the catering to the 1% at the expense of the 99%, stop being Israel's 'bitch', end the globalists' agenda, bring back the American and European industrial bases!  Stirling    

As suspicious as all this appears, the economy actually needs an expandable credit system, and an expandable credit system needs a lender of last resort.  What is wrong with the current scheme is that it discriminates against Main Street in favor of Wall Street.  Banks can borrow very cheaply, while individuals, corporations and governments pay “whatever the market will bear.”  The banker middlemen take their cut in a scheme in which money is actually manufactured in the process of lending it.  The profits are siphoned off to the 1% at the expense of the 99%.

To fix the system, the profits need to be returned to the 99%.  How that could be done was suggested by Thom Hartmann in a recent editorial:

America the Battlefield: The End of the Rule of Law ~ link The beginning of the American fascist police state, American concentration camps with torture, and assorted horrors too terrible to print!   Stirling     

"All the armies of Europe, Asia and Africa combined… could not by force, take a drink from the Ohio, or make a track on the Blue Ridge, in a trial of a thousand years. At what point then is the approach of danger to be expected? I answer, if it ever reach us, it must spring up amongst us. It cannot come from abroad. If destruction be our lot, we must ourselves be its author and finisher. As a nation of freemen, we must live through all time, or die by suicide." – Abraham Lincoln, 1838

America’s so-called war on terror, which it has relentlessly pursued for the past ten years, has forever altered the political and legal landscape of our country. It has chipped away at our freedoms and is unraveling our Constitution. Even now, with Osama bin Laden having been killed and al-Qaeda dismantled by a series of high-profile assassinations, the war hawks continue to rattle their sabers. Yet while more and more Americans join the call for a de-escalation of military actions abroad, those clamoring for war have turned their focus inwards. As Senator Lindsay Graham recently remarked as an explanation for his support of legislation allowing for the indefinite detention of Americans, "Is the homeland the battlefield? You better believe it is the battlefield."

Euro Crisis echoed in Renaissance History ~ link ~ Those who are ignorant of history are doomed to repeat it.   Stirling     

Excessive debt accumulation, structural weakness and poor management were responsible for economic crashes and collapses since the medieval invention of banking by the Italians, who came up with the deposit account, double entry bookkeeping and the line of credit.

"The word bank comes from the Italian, named after the 'banco' or bench on which merchants traded. And bankrupt originates from the practice of breaking the bench of an insolvent banker," said art historian Ludovica Sebregondi, co-curator of "Money and Beauty," a perfectly timed exhibition which runs in Florence until January 22.

How the Fed screws us all - The Great Tomato Bubble ~ link ~ Good One!  Stirling   

Did you know that close to 1/3 of all income taxes are consumed just to pay interest on the Federal Debt? (National Debt currently 14.5 TRILLION DOLLARS , or about $125,000 per household.) Think about it. Every penny that you pay in income tax from January 1 - April 30 is consumed just to pay interest, mainly to foreigners!  And let's not forget the Government's unfunded future liabilities, estimated at 75 TRILLION. (an additional $600,000+ per household.) 

Gingrich would ask John Bolton to be his Secretary of State ~ link ~ Other than Ron Paul, the current collection of Republican presidential candidates are the biggest collection of mentally and morally deficient jerks that I have ever seen!  It is really sad that we are actually spending time listening to these people, who at best need to be in psychological  treatment.   Stirling    

A Union Is Born: Latin America in Revolution ~ link ~ While much of the world is in crisis and protests are erupting throughout Europe and the United States, Latin American and Caribbean nations are building consensus, advancing social justice and increasing positive cooperation in the region. Social, political and economic transformations have been taking place through democratic processes in countries such as Venezuela, Bolivia, Ecuador, Nicaragua, Uruguay, Argentina and Brazil throughout the past decade, leading to a massive reduction in poverty and income disparity in the region, and a substantial increase in social services, quality of life and direct participation in political process. 

One of the major initiatives of progressive Latin American governments this century has been the creation of new regional organizations that promote integration, cooperation and solidarity amongst neighboring nations. Cuba and Venezuela began this process in 2004 with the founding of the Bolivarian Alliance for the Peoples of Our America (ALBA), that now includes Bolivia, Ecuador, Nicaragua, Dominica, St. Vincent’s and the Grenadines and Antigua and Barbuda. ALBA was initially launched in response to the US government’s failed attempt to impose its Free Trade Agreement of the Americas (FTAA) throughout the region. Today ALBA is a thriving multilateral organization with member nations that share similar political visions for their countries and for the region, and includes numerous cooperation agreements in economic, social and cultural areas. The fundamental basis of trade amongst ALBA nations is solidarity and mutual benefit. There is no competition, exploitation or attempt to dominate amongst ALBA states. ALBA even counts on its own currency, the SUCRE, which allows for trade between member nations without dependence on the US dollar.
