US NEEDS TO BAN ANY SUPPORT HERE FOR SETTLERS

AUSTERITY: A CONSPIRACY OF LIARS

The Great Depression taught us that you never starve the machine of the economy when it slows down or freezes up, you grease  the machine. Only stimulus (which creates short-term debt you'll grow out of later) works. Yet a conspiracy of liars got together and sold the world (er, rather imposed upon the world) an austerity regime in the wake of the fraud-created economic meltdown of 2008. Nearly every politician from Merkel's Germany, Sarkozy's France, the EU, Republicans in the U.S. cited the work of Carmen Reinhart and Kenneth Rogoff - conservative academics who perpetrated an elaborate scam. Their numbers were cooked, perhaps by accident but I think by design. 

In this clip, humorist Stephen Colbert brilliantly mocks them:

So the people in Greece, Italy, Ireland, and all around the world who have seen the moneyed elite cut their pensions and benefits, create unemployment, and generally stress the working class and poor (leading to suicides even) have done this for no good reason. Bubbles and contractions are created by the wealthy elites and this pain was inflicted so the rich could profit and for no other reason.

ISRAEL BEING EVIL ONCE AGAIN (USING HUMAN SHIELDS)

Once again israel is being disgusting and evil. Here yet again is video (from YouTube via Mondoweiss where I found it) of IDF using a Palestinian youth as a human shield. The growing racism among israelis is also discussed in another post on Mondoweiss, and the delicious statement by our new Secretary of State comparing the victims of the Boston Marathon bombings to the victims of the Mavi Mamara is also there. Mondoweiss is perhaps the best American source for news on the I/P situation.

ANONYMOUS SAYS DIRT COMING ON THE POWERFUL

If they follow-through, finally. What's the point of penetrating secure databases if you're not going to release the information? How else do you speak truth to power without exposing their crimes? Hopefully this will have a big impact.

PISS OFF, ISRAEL - YOU'RE GETTING CHUCK HAGEL

The Likkudnik faction of israeli leadership, and their aggressive domestic 5th Column here in the U.S., has done everything to derail the nomination of former US Senator Chuck Hagel to head the Defense Dept. for Obama in his 2nd term ... didn't work - Hagel will put the brakes on you, israel. There is a difference between being anti-Israel and being Israel’s pawn. Go back now to trying to get ultra-traitor Pollard freed since you're fighting uphill these days.

ANONYMOUS TARGETS ISRAEL


1st Statement

2nd Statement








Here is Noam Chomsky's statement on Gaza II:
"The incursion and bombardment of Gaza is not about destroying Hamas. It is not about stopping rocket fire into Israel, it is not about achieving peace.

"The Israeli decision to rain death and destruction on Gaza, to use lethal weapons of the modern battlefield on a largely defenseless civilian population, is the final phase in a decades-long campaign to ethnically-cleanse Palestinians.

"Israel uses sophisticated attack jets and naval vessels to bomb densely-crowded refugee camps, schools, apartment blocks, mosques, and slums to attack a population that has no air force, no air defense, no navy, no heavy weapons, no artillery units, no mechanized armor, no command in control, no army… and calls it a war. It is not a war, it is murder.

“When Israelis in the occupied territories now claim that they have to defend themselves, they are defending themselves in the sense that any military occupier has to defend itself against the population they are crushing. You can't defend yourself when you're militarily occupying someone else's land. That's not defense. Call it what you like, it's not defense."

GAZA II BEGINS - MORE ISRAELI PRESSURE TO FORCE OUT ALL PALESTINIANS

Israel has telegraphed its intention to attack Gaza again for months but in doing so used as its pretext recent rocket attacks. Of course no rockets should come out of Palestinian zones - non-violence all the way is the best approach but 95% of these rockets (or more) are cheap, unsophisticated, inaccurate and miss any target since they are dumb bombs. What is really going on is the endless campaign since 1948 to drive out ALL Palestinians and this is but one more campaign in that overall effort - to make Gaza unlivable by constantly grinding it down and terrorizing its people. Hamas and Hezbollah are terrible leaders who have always poorly served the Palestinian people but the Palestinian people don't know how to get rid of them. Of course israel's record of murdering children is added to, in one case with a journalist's small child being burned to death.

PAUL WEYRICH: EPITAPH FOR HIS CYNICISM

Paul Weyrich articulated the Republican Party's heinous vote-manipulation strategy long ago ... more people voting is the enemy of Republican power. Republicans skillfully used hot-button code-words and strategic repetition in propaganda outreach for 40 years to carve up the electorate into more easily manipulable voting blocs - appealing to racism, xenophobia, homophobia, and all manner of emotion-rousing stoking. Well tomorrow's election marks the end of that process. It won't work anymore, and Obama's re-election will mark the epitaph for this style of politics in America. Demographics wins on November 6, 2012 and the Republican Party will go the way of the Whigs by 2016 if they do not radically retool to include outreach to Latinos.

ROMNEY, REPUBLICAN RIGGING OF e-VOTE MACHINES

A former NSA analyst's efforts to crack curious results in his home-state of Arizona's elections the past few years led him to an astounding finding: Republicans have for years rigged electronic vote machines to switch 10% of votes for Democrats to Republicans and it is programming built in everywhere because the 10% anomaly shows up in every large county in the nation (it is targeted at large counties where the rigging can go undetected).  

In 2000 e-vote rigging went on and was targeted mostly in Florida. In 2004 it was detected by activists in several states, primarily in Ohio. In 2006 it stole the election from Georgia Senator Max Cleeland. 

The companies that design and build and provide software and support for electronic voting also build ATMs and lottery machines. ATMs and lottery machines give you a paper receipt for each transaction. The only reason not to have a physical record of votes cast electronically is to cheat.

I do not expect any tampering this cycle to affect the outcome - Obama will win with a minimum of 271-284 electoral votes

HILLARY CALLS OUT ELITES

WORLD ECONOMICS - ALL RIGGED

A recent study reveals the Libor scandal is the tip of the iceberg: the interest rates that affect personal and business loans, and hundreds of trillions of dollars in derivatives contracts around the world, are based on either guesses or lies   Article here

And Matt Tiabbi explains why the U.S. gov't won't fight Wall Street: two simple fixes, the "uptick rule" and ending "naked short-selling" were quashed by the "Blob" of suits that are either an elected/appointed official, a lobbyist, or someone married to one ... they block any real reform    Article here

REPUBLICANS BLOCK VETERANS' JOBS BILL

Okay US military types and families - you often vote right-wing and for the Republican Party but if you took 2 minutes to research it you'd see that it is the historic practice of Republicans getting you into war than screwing you once you get back. It is Democrats who always vote to fund healthcare and other support for military veterans ... again today Republicans blocked money for you

THOUGHT OF THE DAY


CATER WAITER ZAPS ROMNEY

A video has hit the media (months old but now making news) - which shows Mitt Romney at a swanky private home (of a Republican activist known for having had an orgy there according to journalist David Corn) hitting up millionaires for donations and talking in plain words about he and the audience's contempt for half the country - characterizing them as moochers. Nevermind the fact that it is for only 2 years that 47% of Americans paid no income tax (the key line in the speech) as Romney stated (and that figure has fallen to the 30s) but he forgot to mention those Americans paid payroll, sales, state, local, SDI, Social Security and other taxes. Many of these people he maligned - and the rapt audience agreed - work two or three jobs, including the cater waiter who probably captured the video. Hey rich fucks, it is working-class folks working ALL your events and around you all the time.

WHO'S STUPID, BIBI ?

Neyanyahu blusters X 1,000,000 - this time it was on US Sunday political program - calling those not jumping to obey his attack Iran orders "stupid." 

Well, Bibi, stupid is you. Hillary, Obama, and the US defense and intelligence establishment has been feeding you enough rope to hang yourself and ... mission accomplished. Your overreaching and supreme arrogance has turned US public opinion, and mainstream US Jewish public opinion, firmly against you. Now discussion of illegal settlements is open discussion. Now it is openly discussed how israel seeks to force the US into another war. Now it is openly discussed that the US defense and intelligence establishment is firmly in disagreement with what you want. Now it has leaked that you personally engaged in major espionage against the US when you smuggled our nuclear trigger out of America to israel in the 1980s. Now it is openly discussed that your are shamelessly seeking to manipulate the outcome of our election. On and on it goes ... so, thank you, Bibi, for exposing the hideous parasite that is zionist israel to a great many Americans who didn't see it before.

LIBYANS DEMONSTRATE IN SUPPORT OF AMERICA

Libyans demonstrate in support of killed US Ambassador and others who died in the recent attack  More Pics

TRIPLE-CROSS? OR DID ISRAEL GET KARMICALLY FALSE-FLAGGED?

The plot thickens in the whole mystery behind this Sam Bacile character ... reported all over the world to be an "Israeli" who's behind the incendiary film which led to the attacks on US embassies in Cairo, Egypt and Libya ... the same reports naming Bacile say "100 Jewish donors" funded the film project ... now it seems the man may not exist at all - that it is a fake persona and the purported links to israel and jews may not be real either, and that the attack in Libya was orchestrated ahead of time Steve Klein (right-wing militia person from California), Morris Sedak (Coptic Christian right-winger from Egypt), and Terry Jones (the Koran-burning pastor from Florida) have all had their names pop up related to this film .... hmmm, somebody's got quite a game working

SURVEY SAYS: FUCK YOU BIBI

At last. This bellicose scumbag got his comeuppance. After Hillary delivered the final word on the USA deciding not to go to war with Iran because Israel demanded we do it, Bibi escalated yet again - on 9/11 no less - and lambasted our country for not doing what he demands. So Obama issued a statement saying that when Bibi is in New York soon for the UN conference, President Obama will not be making time for him. The information about you sneaking nuclear triggers out of America in the 80s went public for a reason, Bibi, we are letting you know that you will be arrested by our CIA for espionage once your diplomatic immunity ends ... and in LATEST POLL, AMERICANS SAY "HELL NO" to your war by 70%

NEW 9/11 DISCLOSURES: NEOCONS ACTIVELY UNDERMINED CIA WARNINGS

What we already knew or suspected confirmed in NY Times article - here

Paragraph 6: "But some in the administration considered the warning to be just bluster. An intelligence official and a member of the Bush administration both told me in interviews that the neoconservative leaders who had recently assumed power at the Pentagon were warning the White House that the C.I.A. had been fooled; according to this theory, Bin Laden was merely pretending to be planning an attack "

HILLARY DELIVERS COUP-DE-GRACE TO ISRAEL'S IRAN WAR PLANS

Hillary was short and sweet in letting israel know that America drives the bus: "We're not setting deadlines" ... so much for your "red lines" Bibi - link here
