The Sorry State of Modern Economics

Economic history is being written right before our eyes. Hence, I refer to this episode as the largest economic experiment since the implementation of communism. And here’s what really frightens me: None of the experimenters saw this crisis coming, but all of them claim to know the remedy!

Webmaster's Commentary: 

The funny thing is, I saw this mess coming.

And all the "fixes" are just going to make matters worse.

Pupils terrified after arriving at school to bloody crime scene... which was lesson on 'problem solving'

The pupils were shocked when they turned up at Foxhill Primary to find their teacher had been attacked in a violent break-in.

But their parents were more appalled when they learnt the 'crime' had been staged by the school as part of a problem-solving exercise.

Webmaster's Commentary:

Michael Hoffman Moves Beyond The Gatekeepers At Fort Hood And Unveils

Even if he was the gunman, however, even if he was indeed another lone nut, the precedent that's been set here by the government's mouthpiece corporate media is dreadful. They report as fact whatever the government chooses to tell them. Notice too that the Glenn Beck anti-government rebels believe the government in this Texas case, just like Beck believes the government narrative in the 9/11 attacks. It's remarkable, this bipolar suspension of the suspicion of government when it comes to official accounts of shootings, wars and terrorist attacks. In addition to proclaiming Major Hasan guilty until proven innocent, the effect of Fort Hoodwink on the public, as filtered through the media, is to induce in the American people one of the lowest, dumbest, golem-like mentalities of obtuseness.

Predictions of Climate Change Induced Natural Disasters Falling Flat

Mother Nature can be very fickle and predicting what she will bring tomorrow is difficult. Trying to do so over a span of years is next to impossible. Complicating matters, recent empirical evidence indicates that despite increasing carbon dioxide temperatures are decreasing and there has been no increase in climactic related events at all.

President Of Special Interests

President Of Special Interests

By Paul Craig Roberts

19 February, 2009

The Bush/Obama bailout/stimulus plans are not going to work. Both are schemes hatched by a clique of financial insiders. The schemes will redistribute income and wealth from American taxpayers to the shyster banksters, who have destroyed American jobs, ruined the retirement plans of tens of millions of Americans, and worsened the situation of millions of people worldwide who naively trusted American financial institutions. The ongoing theft has simply been recast. Instead of using fraudulent financial instruments, the banksters are using government policy.

Barack Obama Administration Continues US Military Global Dominance

Barack Obama Administration Continues US Military Global Dominance

in Featured Articles & Editorials
By Peter Phillips

The Barack Obama administration is continuing the neo-conservative agenda of US military domination of the world— albeit with perhaps a kinder-gentler face. While overt torture is now forbidden for the CIA and Pentagon, and symbolic gestures like the closing of the Guantanamo prison are in evidence, a unilateral military dominance policy, expanding military budget, and wars of occupation and aggression will likely continue unabated.

Abbas Threatens to Dismantle PA, Declare Peace Process Failed

Palestinian Authority President Mahmoud Abbas is considering dissolving the PA and declaring the failure of the peace process with Israel, PA officials in Ramallah said over the weekend.

Abbas was now waiting to see if the US and other parties would exert enough pressure on Israel to stop settlement construction and recognize the two-state solution before he makes any decision, the officials said.

In his televised speech on Thursday, in which he announced that he has “no desire” to run in the upcoming presidential election, Abbas said that he would also consider taking “other measures” in the future, but did not elaborate.

Fort Hoodlum, Fort Hoodwink and those the Gods Drive Mad

It is a staggering thing to see, the highly placed and pervasively visible, going on and on about the fall of The Berlin Wall with no mention of the wall that surrounds Palestine. It is amazing to see so many unnamed mouthpieces mentioning that the Fort Hoodwink psychiatrist was a regular at a strip club. Some of the details mirror those made after 9/11 about Mohammed Atta and friends in Florida. This was around the time they were visiting Israeli bagman, Black Jack Abramoff on his gambling boat; as reported by the FBI. It is amazing to hear that this psychiatrist had ancient links to ‘so-called’ 9/11 terror mosques and radical Imans. It is completely amazing that a non combat, medical officer could shoot nearly 45 people on a military base with an automatic handgun and a revolver.

Conflicts of interest? Dr. Mehmet Oz owns 150,000 option shares in vaccine technology company

Dr. Mehmet Oz is a huge promoter of vaccines. He's been on television reinforcing fear about H1N1 swine flu and telling everyone to get vaccinated. But what he didn't tell his viewing audience is that he holds 150,000 option shares in a vaccine company that could earn him millions of dollars in profits as the stock price rises. It is in Dr. Oz's own financial interest, in other words, to hype up vaccines and get more people taking them so that his own financial investments rise in value.

GPs to get bigger bonuses if they meet swine flu jab targets

GPs are in line for huge bonuses if they manage to persuade large numbers of their patients to sign up to the swine flu jab, it has emerged.

NHS managers in Birmingham have told family doctors they will be able to get extra payments - on top of the £5.25 they already get per jab - if they meet targets on vaccination rates.

If they vaccinate more than 90 per cent of those deemed at risk of the disease in their area, they will get 50 per cent more per jab, meaning they will be paid £7.88 for every person they vaccinate.

Even if they achieve an uptake of 40 per cent, they will get an extra 10 per cent on top.

Three more scientists have resigned from the Government's drugs advisory body in the wake of the sacking of Professor David Nutt, its chairman.

The trio quit the Advisory Council on the Misuse of Drugs following a crunch meeting with Alan Johnson, the Home Secretary, who earlier this month told Prof Nutt to step down after criticising Government policy.

They are understood to be Dr John Marsden, Dr Ian Ragan and Dr Simon Campbell and their departure follows the resignation of two other members as the row over the future role of the ACMD deepens.

Inside Britain's Israel Lobby

Dispatches investigates one of the most powerful and influential political lobbies in Britain, which is working in support of the interests of the State of Israel.

Despite wielding great influence among the highest realms of British politics and media, little is known about the individuals and groups which collectively are known as the pro-Israel lobby.

Political commentator Peter Oborne sets out to establish who they are, how they are funded, how they work and what influence they have, from the key groups to the wealthy individuals who help bankroll the lobbying.

He investigates how accountable, transparent and open to scrutiny the lobby is, particularly in regard to its funding and financial support of MPs.

Ask a veteran: If Afghan war is illegal, US troops and public must refuse deployment

“An error does not become truth by reason of multiplied propagation, nor does truth become error because nobody sees it. Truth stands, even if there be no public support. It is self sustained.” - Mohandas Gandhi, Young India 1924-1926 (1927), p. 1285

CBS news reports that sources confirm the deployment of ~40,000 additional US troops in Afghanistan (two-minute video below). The most important context for troops, officers, and the US public to consider is that if the US war is illegal, we must all refuse deployment and any further engagement. All those with an oath to defend and protect the US Constitution are sworn to refuse such an illegal act (along with being viciously immoral).

Kill Enemy Children: Jewish Edict

A Jewish rabbi has issued a book giving Jews permission to murder non-Jews, including babies and children who pose an actual or potential threat to Jews or Israel. Rabbi Yitzhak Shapiro, head of the Yitzhar settlement in the occupied West Bank, says: “It is permissible to kill the Righteous among non-Jews even if they are not responsible for the threatening situation.” Shapiro writes in his book The King’s Torah: “If we kill a Gentile who has sinned or has violated one of the seven commandments…there is nothing wrong with the murder.” Shapiro claims his edict “is fully justified by the Torah and the Talmud.”

Germany's sovereignty restricted by US and allies?

The former head of the West German Military Intelligence has issued a book revealing secret details of a 1949 US-German treaty, alleging America and its allies have been deliberately suppressing the nations sovereignty.
Webmaster's Commentary: 

Ernst Zundel has been denounced as crazy for saying that Germany is not a legal sovereign state, that the United States maintains illegal control over the nation. Now, the former head of German intelligence corrobotaes EXACTLY what Zundel has been saying for years!

The US government cannot make secret agreements with other nations, it is illegal and unconstitutional. Thus, Germany is not legally required to allow the United States government to control it, and can just cast aside the provisions of the secret agreement made under duress in the years following WWII.

AshkeNazi Threatens Gaza With Another "Little Holocaust"

There seems to be a perfect conformity between Gabi Ashkenazi and his last name. The Israeli chief of staff is considered one of the main Israeli war criminals responsible for the virtual genocide against the Gaza Strip during the past winter. On his murderous hands, he carries tons of innocent blood, including that of more than 340 children, killed in Israel’s pornographic bombing of civilian neighborhood.

Last week, Ashkenazi was quoted as saying that Israel was likely to wage another quasi holocaust on Gaza, adding that the Israeli occupation army would enter the innermost corners and streets of the coastal territory.

Obama Meets With Bibi:The Unusual Media Blackout

President Barack Obama held unusually low-profile talks with Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu on Monday that failed to provide any sign of progress toward reviving Israeli-Palestinian peace negotiations.

A White House statement after the one-hour, 40-minute session framed the meeting in only general terms, saying the two leaders discussed “how to move forward on Middle East peace” and also spoke about Iran and security issues.

The parley was accompanied by an unusual news blackout, as the standard photo op and press availability were not held. In addition, A spokesman for Netanyahu declined to comment on the talks and a briefing the Israeli prime minister intended to hold on Tuesday for reporters who accompanied him to Washington was canceled.

You read that right.

Add to that the nonpartisan CBO’s projection that any government-run public option would wind up being even more expensive than those offered in the private sector. Add to that the fact that Blue Dog Democrats and Republicans had shoehorned language into the bill that allows individual states to opt out of the public option, a tack favored by the President. It’s called “the trigger option”, so-called because it would trigger the implementation of said so-called option if the private sector doesn’t meet certain conditions.

US Rep. Cantor: Answer Enemies with Renewed Vigilance'

Republican Whip Eric Cantor reminded the 2009 General Assembly of the Jewish Federations of North America in Washington that Iranian President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad is "the man holding the gun with which he vows to kill Israel and the Jews."

Cantor said that each day that passes brings the world one step closer to Ahmadinejad's possession of a nuclear bomb. "Have we not been down this road before?" he asked.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

You cannot help but admire Cantor's "big lie" technique here, and I am certain that, with this audience, it went over big.

However, I would like to raise the butt-ugly head of calm fact in response to this rhetoric.

1. Iranian President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad never said that he wanted to "....kill Israel and the Jews".

2. Iran has a sizable Jewish population which has resisted any attempts by Israel to get them to immigrate to Israel.

3. Iran has not started a war with anyone in over 200 years.

4. Iran is a signatory to the NNPT, and has done everything completely by the book in terms of allowing inspections. There has never been a single report of nuclear material getting diverted, or uranium being enriched to any more than is necessary to fuel a power station.

5. Israel, which does possess nuclear weapons, refuses to become a signatory to the NNPT, or allow inspections of its nuclear weaponry.

6. And finally, all the "caterwauling" regarding Iran cannot obviate the fact that the UN General Assembly has voted to accept the findings of the Goldstone Report.

Any questions, Representative Cantor?!?

UK scholars linked to 'stolen' bowls of Babylon

Commissioned by University College London in 2005, it confirms the expert view that the bowls were stolen from the historical site of Babylon and should be returned to Iraq or handed over to the police. The report was completed in 2006 but suppressed a year later in a legal settlement made between the university and the putative owner of the bowls, the multimillionaire Norwegian collector, Martin Schøyen.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

When the American plantation owners overthrew the Hawaiian monarchy, the very first thing they did was strip Iolani Palace of all furnishings and cultural artifacts, in order to erase the sense of national identity in the people, preparatory to imposing a new one.

Likewise, the invasion of Iraq triggered a mass looting and destruction of ancient sites and artifacts, in order to erase the cultural identity of the Iraqi people.

I think that destruction of ancient sites is deliberate policy.

Egypt is literally littered with the ruins of the ancient temples and palaces of her rulers. As much as has been found, it is estimated that only 1/3 of Egypt's archeological wonders have been uncovered. A newly discovered temple was uncovered while digging a sewer line, and a cache of finely preserved mummies was literally stumbled over by a cow in a pasture.

Iraq's ancient heritage was enshrined in its ancient sites and museum. As a result of the war, many of those sites have been damaged or destroyed. Part of the ancient city or Ur now lies underneath a US air base runway. The treasures of the museum have only partly been recovered. The treasures from the looted archaeological sites have been scattered to the world.

The same is true of Iran. Artifacts from their ancient past are everywhere to be seen.

All of this wealth of archaeological treasures must of course annoy Israel. We are raised from birth with Old Testament tales of the greatness of the ancient Israelites, of the powerful kingdoms of Solomon and David and the first temple. Yet Israel, while rich in antiquities, is entirely devoid of artifacts from this supposedly glorious time in her history. The existence of the fabled First Temple was supported with just two artifacts, a carved staff ornament in the shape of a pomegranate and the Jehoash tablet. Both of these artifacts have been exposed as frauds. We are told that once there was a magnificent temple on that hill, but it "all went away." The wonders emerging from the soil of Egypt, Iraq, and Iran serve as a constant reminder that ancient buildings of such a scale as we are told the First Temple was simply do not vanish without a trace.

There is considerable reason to suspect that the tales told in the Old Testament are just that; tales. The Bible is not science, it is the collected stories of a primitive tribal people reassuring each other how important they are. And like fishermen talking about the one that got away, or Ramses with his temple carvings of the did-not-really-happen victory over the Hittites at Kadesh, the writers of the ancient testaments assumed that the people they were telling stories to had no way to verify the claims for themselves. So "embellishment" was a low-risk activity.

We do know from the available archaeological evidence that the Exodus probably actually happened to the Hyksos, not the Israelites. We know that the story of Moses is suspect because no Egyptian princess would hide a Hebrew child inside Pharaoh's household, then give the kid a Hebrew name ("Moses" is actually an Egyptian title meaning "Prince" and is included in the names of many Pharaoh's names such as Tut-Moses, Ah-Moses, Ra-Moses (Ramses) etc.)

Likewise, the story of Masada may be less than accurate. The remains found on the mountain were buried with pig bones, something no proper Jewish funeral would tolerate, which suggests that the bodies found and venerated as heroes of ancient Judea were actually those of dead Romans.

What little evidence exists from the time of Solomon suggests that his Temple, a far less grandiose affair that popularly imagined, was actually located at Gihon Spring. The platform at the Temple Mount is actually the remains of the Roman Garrison built after the revolt of 70AD.

But a good story is a good story and the writers of the ancient texts were probably not thinking much further into the future than the guys who pen the "Celebrity dates space alien" stories you see at supermarket checkout lines. The fact that the celebrity is a real person does not prove the space alien exists. It's just a story.

Given enough time, even a simple story written in jest can take on a life of its own. Scientology began as a bet between two science fiction writers, L. Ron Hubbard and Robert A. Heinlein; look how wide spread that has become in just a short time.

But, over time, entire religions with attendant wealth and power structures have been built on the premise that these ole testament stories really happened exactly as written. And today, here in the 21st century world, science has started to catch up with these ancient legends and call many of them into doubt.

So, for a nation that justifies its existence on the writings of the Torah, the plethora of sites and artifacts confirming the ancient histories of Egypt, Iraq, Iran, etc. etc. etc. must seem a dire political threat for a nation whose own ancient history seems to have left little if any traces at all.

In that context, the strange behavior of the US military which posted guards around the Iraq oil ministry while leaving the Baghdad museum unguarded suddenly starts to make sense. So does the intentional targeting of Palestinian antiquities and the theft of their cultural treasures, if the supporters of a very insecure nation decide that leveling the archaeological playing field is preferable to allowing the obvious disparity in artifacts to remain visible to the world.

In an attempt to attach ancient Israel to present day Jerusalem, Israeli authorities continue the attachment of spurious labels to Holy Basin landmarks, while claiming the falsification is due to the Byzantines, who got it all wrong.

King David’s Tower’s earliest remains were constructed several hundred years after the Bible dates David’s reign. It is a now an obvious Islamic minaret.

King David’s Citadel earliest remains are from the Hasmonean period (200 B.C.). The Citadel was entirely rebuilt by the Ottomans between 1537 and 1541.

King David’s tomb, located in the Dormition Abbey, is a cloth-covered cenotaph (no remains) that honors King David. It’s only an unverified guess that the casket is related to David.

The Pools of Solomon, located in a village near Bethlehem, are considered to be part of a Roman construction during the reign of Herod the Great. The pools supplied water to an aqueduct that carried the water to Bethlehem and to Jerusalem.

The Stables of Solomon, under the Temple Mount, are assumed to be a construction of vaults that King Herod built in order to extend the Temple Mount platform.

Absalom’s Tomb is an obvious Greek sculptured edifice and therefore cannot be the tomb of David’s son.

The City of David contains artifacts that date before and during David’s time. However, some archaeologists maintain there is an insufficient number of artifacts to conclude any Israelite presence, including that of King David, before the late ninth century. In any case any Israelite presence must have been in a small and unfortified settlement.

The Jerusalem Archaeological Park within the Old City, together with the Davidson Exhibition and Virtual Reconstruction Center also tell the story. Promising to reveal much of a Hebrew civilization, the museums shed little light on its subject. The Davidson Center highlights a coin exhibition, Jerusalem bowls and stone vessels. The Archeological Park in the Old City contains among many artifacts, Herodian structures, ritual baths, a floor of an Umayyad palace, a Roman road, Ottoman gates, and the façade of what is termed Robinson’s arch, an assumed Herodian entryway to the Temple Mount. The exhibitions don’t reveal many, if any, ancient Hebrew structures or institutions of special significance.

Reliable archaeologists, after examining excavations that contain pottery shards and buildings, concluded that archaeological finds don't substantiate the biblical history of Jerusalem and its importance during the eras of a united Jewish kingdom under David and Solomon.

Margaret Steiner in an article titled It's Not There: Archaeology Proves a Negative in the Biblical Archaeology Review, July/August, 1998, states:

"...from the tenth century B.C.E. there is no archaeological evidence that many people actually lived in Jerusalem, only that it was some kind of public administrative center...We are left with nothing that indicates a city was here during their supposed reigns (of David and Solomon)...It seems unlikely, however, that this Jerusalem was the capital of a large state, the United monarchy, as described in Biblical texts."

The Responsibility of the US in Contaminating Iraq with Depleted Uranium

For two decades, the administrations of the United States of America and the United Kingdom have been waging continuous wars on Iraq to occupy this oil rich country.

The armed forces of those two countries attacked civilians with different kinds of conventional, non-conventional, and banned weapons such as cluster bombs ammunitions, napalm bombs, white phosphorous weapons and depleted Uranium weapons.

Depleted Uranium (DU) is a radioactive and chemically toxic heavy metal. If ingested, inhaled, or it enters the human body through wounds or skin, it remains there for decades

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Warning: very graphic photo of a kid born with massive birth defects due to exposure to DU.

But take a deep breath and think; what if this were your kid?!?

US appellate court blocks lawsuit against extraordinary rendition and torture

For the second time in two years a federal appellate court has denied Canadian citizen Maher Arar the right to sue former Attorney General John Ashcroft and other US government officials for money damages based on his "extraordinary rendition" to Syria, where he was imprisoned without due process and tortured for almost a year.

On November 2, a divided panel of eleven judges from the Second Circuit Court of Appeals, which reviews decisions from United States district courts in New York, Connecticut and Vermont, voted 7-4 that neither the Torture Victim Protection Act (TVPA) nor the Constitution itself provides a remedy for someone illegally seized by US authorities while traveling through the United States and sent halfway around the world specifically to be tortured into a confession.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

If these judges have found "no remedy" in US law or the Constitution, it is obvious that these judges are singularly unacquainted with either either!

This decision has absolutely nothing to do with law, and everything to do with protecting the former administration's use of torture, period, end of discussion.

As Foreclosure Nightmares Increase, Will More Homeowners Pay Off Their Bankers in Violence?

Anger and discontent are reaching a boil as a lethal combination of economic corruption and political collusion are deleveraged across the United States.

From recent rampages in Orlando, Fla., to mortgage-related torture in Los Angeles, certain members of the citizenry seem to have had their fill of being manipulated for the financial gain of others, and they’re firing back with force.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Unfortunately, it appears that this kind of violence may well escalate as people become more desperate with their circumstances.

Yesterday I wrote a piece about the control AIPAC has over US foreign policy. But, I did not go into other particulars as to why the US House of Representatives voted against the Goldstone Report.

After speaking to one of my Associates over at Uruknet, the following ideas surfaced…
First of all, US war crimes are far worse than the Israeli ones….. this is an indisputable FACT.

Nov 10 09:05


There seems to be a perfect conformity between Gabi Ashkenazi and his last name. The Israeli chief of staff is considered one of the main Israeli war criminals responsible for the virtual genocide against the Gaza Strip during the past winter. On his murderous hands, he carries tons of innocent blood, including that of more than 340 children, killed in Israel’s pornographic bombing of civilian neighborhood.

Last week, Ashkenazi was quoted as saying that Israel was likely to wage another quasi holocaust on Gaza, adding that the Israeli occupation army would enter the innermost corners and streets of the coastal territory.

West Bank rabbi: Jews can kill Gentiles who threaten Israel

Rabbi Yitzhak Shapiro, who heads the Od Yosef Chai Yeshiva in the Yitzhar settlement, wrote in his book "The King's Torah" that even babies and children can be killed if they pose a threat to the nation.

"It is permissible to kill the Righteous among Nations even if they are not responsible for the threatening situation," he wrote, adding: "If we kill a Gentile who has sinned or has violated one of the seven commandments - because we care about the commandments - there is nothing wrong with the murder."

Webmaster's Commentary: 

"...babies and children...", eh?

Fort Hood Mystery

First is the report the perpetrator was dead and then hours later the revelation that he was still alive. Exactly how long does it take to determine if a person is dead or alive? Could it be no one knew whom the shooter or shooters were and a story had to be concocted for public consumption? What happened to the two other "suspects" that were detained? What did they do to qualify as suspects and more importantly, what information surfaced that led to their release? One of the suspects reportedly stated he "was with the shooter."

Tensions grow as Chavez masses troops on border

Telling his people, "If you want peace, prepare for war," and accusing the US of secretly plotting to invade and seize Venezuela's oil reserves, Hugo Chavez announced that he intends to send 15,000 troops to his country's border with Colombia.

The hostile move, which has inflamed diplomatic relations across the region, saw the left-wing president urge his soldiers to "defend this sacred nation called Venezuela" against what he called a creeping right-wing "empire". In response, Colombia said it would complain to the United Nations.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Given the history of US intervention in the region, coupled with the recently signed agreement allowing a fairly substantial presence of US troops in Columbia, it is imminently possible that Chavez has every rational reason to be nervous.

The Israeli Spy Ring

"Investigators within the DEA, INS and FBI have all told Fox News that to pursue or even suggest Israeli spying ... is considered career suicide."

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Back in 2001, the FBI uncovered the largest spy ring ever found inside the United States, being run by our "friend" Israel.

Half-way through arresting the network of spies, 9-11 happened.

Carl Cameron broadcast a four-part series on the Israeli spy ring, which included the following quote.

"Evidence linking these Israelis to 9/11 is classified. I cannot tell you about evidence that has been gathered. It's classified information." -- US official quoted in Carl Cameron's Fox News report on the Israeli spy ring and its connections to 9-11.

AIPAC immediately went into action and ordered FOX News to erase the story from their website. FOX News obeyed, even to the point of contacting websites with copies of the news story and threatening legal action if the video that Israel found offensive was not removed. Okay, if you want to act like you have something to hide, fine; I won't stop you.

However, in the wake of AIPAC's own recent spy scandal, the media's willingness to cover up Israel's crimes may be waning in the face of growing public awareness of the media's culpability, and the four-part news story is back up at YouTube for all the world to see.

Of particular note are the very nervous comments of the other FOX newscasters trying to reassure us all that just because Mossad agents were linked to 9-11 was no reason to suspect Israel had anything to do with 9-11, because gracious me, Israel would never DO that soft of thing to its benefactors in the United States, right? Right? Of course right!

Iraqi Cabinet approves Exxon Mobil-Shell oil deal

BAGHDAD -- Iraq's prime minister says his Cabinet has approved a deal with a consortium led by U.S.-based Exxon Mobil to develop a prized oil field in the country's south.

The Exxon Mobil Royal Dutch Shell group will develop the 8.6 billion West Qurna 1 field and received $1.90 per barrel produced. It plans to boost production from 280,000 barrels per day to 2.325 million barrels within seven years.

The Oil Ministry is expected to finalize the 20-year service deal soon.

Suicides in the downturn raise worries about recession’s real cost

Coroner John White is presiding over a sad tally in this northern Indiana county, tracking rising numbers of suicides he believes are linked to the lingering recession.

Rumors of an economic recovery may be whispered elsewhere, but here, where the downturn remains entrenched, 22 people have killed themselves this year, and two more cases were likely suicides, outpacing the county's annual average of 16 self-inflicted deaths.

And as for the most stinging critique of Bernanke's attempt to force the US taxpayer to become the only holder of MBS in the world, the first deputy chairman of Russia's Central Bank had this to say of just how much credibility the rest of the world has in the Fed's balance sheet (which now soon will consist almost 50% of MBS and Agencies).

JFK - Who Bought The Guns?

Evidence of conspiracy in the assassination of John F. Kennedy is always going to circumstantial. You get from point A to point B by basically doing: 2+2=4. And once you start studying various issues in depth you start to stumble over a bewildering jumble of obstacles. A case in point is the issue of Lee Oswald’s gun ownership. Like with all things Oswald, a closer look shows this to be anything but simple and straight forward. Even the most minor of details are fraught with difficulty and Oswald and his guns present another journey into more extended mysteries.

News blackout on PM, Obama meeting

Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu held a lengthy meeting with US President Barack Obama Monday night which addressed the Middle East peace process, Iran and Israeli security.

The one-hour-and-forty-minute parley was accompanied by an unusual news blackout, as the standard photo op and press availability were not held. In addition, Netanyahu canceled a scheduled briefing with Israeli reporters and Defense Minister Ehud Barak scrapped plans for radio interviews following the talks.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

1. There is no "Middle East peace proces"s, because Israel continues to favor stealing land from the Palestinians to enhance its territory.

2. It is apparent that the US has been given its marching orders on Iran, no matter what counter proposals Iran comes up with.

3. Israel is secure: it has nuclear weapons!

Any questions?!?!?

Plan to pierce heart of urban monster volcano

TO ANCIENT Romans the Phlegraean Fields hosted the entrance to Hades. In modern times it is better known as the site of a "supercolossal" volcanic eruption 39,000 years ago.

Will we see the next disaster coming? That's one of the questions an ambitious drilling project hopes to answer by sinking boreholes into Campi Flegrei, as the giant collapsed volcanic crater is now called. Starting as early as next month, the Campi Flegrei Deep Drilling Project is planning to drill seven holes in the region (see map).

Though the researchers on this particular project point out that any risk is small, it will begin amid debate about whether such endeavours are safe, given the unknowns of a volcano's interior. A few say drilling might even trigger a major eruption.

Martian landscapes

Since 2006, NASA's Mars Reconnaissance Orbiter (MRO) has been orbiting Mars, currently circling approximately 300 km (187 mi) above the Martian surface. On board the MRO is HiRISE, the High Resolution Imaging Science Experiment camera, which has been photographing the planet for several years now at resolutions as fine as mere inches per pixel. Collected here is a group of images from HiRISE over the past few years, in either false color or grayscale, showing intricate details of landscapes both familiar and alien, from the surface of our neighboring planet, Mars.

Goldman Sachs CEO: "doing God's work." Enron CEO: "We are on the side of angels."

Bank executives are cashing-in with bonuses from stock options at record rates (again), with the chair and CEO of Goldman Sachs literally claiming that they are doing God’s work (yes, really). Goldman Sachs makes money through “trading.” For analogy, I suggest reviewing the history of another record-setting company for profits that “traded”: Enron. In the two-minute trailer to the documentary, “The smartest guys in the room,” CEO Jeffrey Skilling also says, “We are the good guys. We are on the side of angels.”

For your consideration: trading that does not produce goods and services is a euphemism for gambling (look it up).

A History of Money and Banking Secrets That Banks Don't Want Published

A History of Money and Trade

To start with a history of money and debt, we must go back many years ago when people used to trade their wares for the things they wanted and needed.

In place of money or Federal Reserve Notes, you could trade a well made pistol for a cow, which you could eat or trade a remainder of for other items like clothing.

It didn't take long for people to realize there needed to be a more efficient means of trade. If you were a farmer, it was too difficult to carry baskets of fresh corn around to trade for a new horse. And, the person selling the horse might not want any corn at all.

The day General McArthur signed the peace treaty with Japan half the weapons stored on Okinawa were shipped to Ho Chi Minh and General Giap who met these shipments at the docks of Hai Phong harbor with Lucien Conein, the CIA case officer for Diem.
