Dodgy dossier aide now the £100,000 boss of White House lobbying firm

The man who wrote the infamous ‘dodgy dossier’ for Tony Blair about Saddam Hussein’s weapons is now a £100,000-a-year adviser working at the nerve centre of Barack Obama’s military and foreign policy establishment.

The $21 Billion Hot Potato

Indeed, with global investors attacking any sovereign government that’s running massive deficits or stuck with a pile of bad debts …

And with Uncle Sam obviously the world’s greatest debtor, beggar and fiat money printer …

Some folks at the Treasury Department now fear the United States could be the next victim.

So they’re scrambling to get rid of at least SOME of the junk they piled up during the great bailout frenzy of 2009.

The Stealth Bailouts

"As the Obama Administration works up its 12,487th plan for keeping underwater homeowners in their homes, Arizona’s legislation may have the courage and good sense to do the obvious: let foreclosed homeowners stay in their home as renters. A bill was just introduced in legislature that would allow homeowners in houses that sell for less than the median price to remain in their home as renters for at least one year following foreclosure.

U.S. Enriches Companies Defying Its Policy on Iran

The federal government has awarded more than $107 billion in contract payments, grants and other benefits over the past decade to foreign and multinational American companies while they were doing business in Iran, despite Washington’s efforts to discourage investment there, records show.

That includes nearly $15 billion paid to companies that defied American sanctions law by making large investments that helped Iran develop its vast oil and gas reserves.

The Constitution Does Not Protect Our Property

The U.S. Constitution is widely believed to have been written to limit the powers of the federal government and protect the rights of its citizens. Inexplicably, this belief is held even by those who acknowledge that the constitutional convention was called for the express purpose of expanding the powers of the federal government, supposedly because the government under the Articles of Confederation was too weak. That this was the purpose of the convention is not a disputed fact. Nevertheless, most people who care at all about the Constitution continue to believe and promote the “Constitution as protector of rights” myth.

Uranium Is So Last Century — Enter Thorium, the New Green Nuke

Original post by Richard Martin, at Wired.com.

.... thorium could solve the nuclear power industry’s most intractable problems. After it has been used as fuel for power plants, the element leaves behind minuscule amounts of waste. And that waste needs to be stored for only a few hundred years, not a few hundred thousand.... But.... Locked in a struggle with a nuclear-armed Soviet Union, the US government in the ’60s chose to build uranium-fueled reactors — in part because they produce plutonium that can be refined into weapons-grade material...

...thorium ....is also extraordinarily efficient as a nuclear fuel.... less radioactive nastiness left behind.....
Even better, Weinberg realized that you could use thorium in an entirely new kind of reactor, one that would have zero risk of meltdown.

The Decline of the Israeli Right and the Increasing Desperation of the 'Anti-Semitism' Charge

The great divide between liberal Jewish Americans and the Israeli Right has lurked as an issue since the Likud Party first challenged Labor dominance in the late 1970s. It is now coming to a boiling point, even as Israel's reputation in the world is sinking. As rightwing policies more visibly fail, the Likudniks are flailing around making fools of themselves by smearing critics of those policies as racists. (Anyone who knows how Likud supporters talk among themselves about Arabs and other outsiders can only be amused at their impudent hypocrisy in playing the race card.)

Iceland rejects plan to repay Icesave debts

Voters in Iceland have overwhelmingly rejected proposals to pay the UK and the Netherlands in the wake of collapse of the Icesave bank.

With a third of results counted, 93% of voters said "No" in a referendum.

Iceland's prime minister says her government will remain in office and continue to seek a repayment deal.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

That last bit is rather arrogant considering that the Icelandic people have already kicked out one government over this mess.

Original post by Jeff Salton at Gizmag.com; posted in light of my recent discovery of the hidden potential of digital television.

“Due to its availability and range, TV white spaces have proved to be a very cost-effective way to distribute high-speed Internet in this heavily forested and hilly rural community,” said Peter Stanforth, CTO of Spectrum Bridge. “The non-line of sight conditions, coupled with long distances between radios, would have posed significant challenges to existing unlicensed alternatives. TV white spaces could prove to be invaluable to those striving to bring broadband access to under-served and unserved rural communities.”

Voters in Iceland Appear to Reject Repayment Plan

Iceland’s voters expressed their outrage on Saturday against bankers, the government and what they saw as foreign bullying, overwhelmingly rejecting a plan to pay $5.3 billion to Britain and the Netherlands to reimburse customers of a failed Icelandic bank.

With about 30 percent of the votes counted, roughly 93 percent of voters said no to the plan, in the first public referendum ever held on any subject in Iceland. Less than 2 percent voted yes, and the rest of the votes were invalid.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

WAY TO GO, ICELAND!!!

UPDATE: I am getting a lot of nasty emails from obvious banker types calling the Icelandic people all sorts of nasty names and essentially taking the position that it is immoral for the people of Iceland not to reimburse the banks.

But...

Banks, just like any other business, are not immune to failure and collapse. In the last ten years we have seen a great many banks abandon prudence for greed and engage in some very reckless behaviors, which ruined a great many banks. But the banks, apparently convinced that they should not suffer the consequences of their folly, plied willing politicians with campaign donations and insisted that it was up to the state, meaning the taxpayers, to make up the losses and keep the banks in business.

This is, of course the hallmark of a fascist economy, in which profits are allowed to be kept by the profiteers, but the losses are socialized onto the people. The Icelanders do not wish to live under Fascism, and they expressed to their government their wish that tax funds not be used to shore up the banks.

The government of Iceland refused to listen, and not only poured available revenues into the banks, but borrowed even more money to try to keep the banks afloat!

Americans who watched the US Congress ram through TARP and numerous other bailouts even as 90% of all Americans were opposed to bailing out the banks with taxpayer funds will understand how frustrated the Icelandic people felt.

Simply on the point that the people of Iceland (and America) refused their consent to allow taxpayer money to be poured into the failing banks gives the Icelandic people (and Americans) a moral right to refuse to underwrite those loans.

But beyond that is the legal concept of "Odious debt". This is a legal concept in international law which states that the people of a nation are obligated to repay only those debts of the government incurred for the benefit of the people, such as roads, schools, infrastructure. The argument has been made, and has been upheld in international courts, that the people of a nation are not liable for the debts incurred by a government to fight wars, or to repress the people. Clearly, given that the bailouts of private banks are not being done for the benefit of the people, but for private businesses, the same concept clearly applies.

Since Iceland has already thrown out their previous government, under Odious debt the people of Iceland are only liable for the debts incurred by that previous government to build roads, hospitals, harbors, and other civil projects.

The people of Iceland are not liable for the loans taken out by the government to bail out private banks.

And of course the same legal principle applies here as well.

Most decorated US Marine General: Purpose of all US wars is billions for insiders’ profits

*hyperlinks and video live at source*

Smedley Butler (and here) was the most honored man in Marine Corps history. He wrote and spoke that the purpose of US wars is millions and billions in profits for America’s leading “bankers, industrialists, and speculators.” War is a “racket:” a deception whereby its purpose of blood money from American taxpayers to “insiders” is always disguised as noble and necessary ventures to keep Americans propagandized into paying again and again.

Economics and the Health Care Debate

So government is to fix the problem? Just like they won the war on drugs, crime and poverty. Just like they fixed education, and the family court system. Anyone who understands today's social problems can see that government has solved nothing. In fact, there is no way government can fix our health care problem, especially when government has lost sight of its basic function (i.e., national security). Every solution offered by government leads to further problems: dependency, corruption, economic inefficiency, clogged courts and crowded prisons, schools that graduate illiterates, broken homes and neglected children.

PALESTINE BETRAYED BY ITS OWN ‘LEADERS’

The PA decision to resume “indirect talks” with Israel is undoubtedly a clear expression of its moral and political bankruptcy. It is also an expression of its inability to lead the Palestinian people.

The PA leadership had been saying ad nauseam that it won’t resume “peace talks” with Israel until and unless Israel agrees to freeze Jewish settlement expansion in the West Bank and East Jerusalem.

The Fatah conference in Bethlehem, which was held last year, even took a unanimous decision backing the PA stance on the settlements.

Now, it seems that all Fatah’s vows and undertakings were nothing more than hot air. This really begs the question of whether the PA itself can really be taken seriously.

FLASHBACK: 2003: PUBLIC DIGITAL TELEVISION: IMPROVING HOMELAND SECURITY

Whitepaper discusses switch from analog to digital television, proposes Nationwide Alert System (in case of terrorism, of course), and reveals some very interesting things, such as [emphasis mine]:

    • The system is “addressable” so that public safety agencies can pinpoint to whom the data is sent... they can send targeted, encrypted information to certain authorized individuals.....

    • new digital technologies to create and deploy a platform that will enable two-way and point-to-point communications. This system can be leveraged to support a national homeland security alert system....

    • digital broadcast streams may be compressed—which creates the opportunity to use that spectrum for other purposes....

Hmmm. I'm sure those other purposes are good ones. Certainly that targeting won't be used except in emergencies, hmm? And that two-way thing - with consent. of course.

Christmas Day terror plot plane would have landed safely even if 'underpants' bomb had blown up

A bomb on board a U.S. Christmas Day flight would have failed to bring the plane down even if it had been detonated successfully, a new test explosion suggests.

Pentagon Shooter Was Right-Wing, Anti-Government Terrorist

Bedell “appears to have been a right-wing extremist with virulent antigovernment feelings,” the Christian Science Monitor reports, who traveled from California specifically to attack the Pentagon.

Well, the demonization of Bedell goes on, along with bashing the 9-11 truth movement.

Actually, total incompetence and an utter failure to keep any of the Democratic Platform promises are the reasons the Democrats are going to crater this fall.

US administration to block vote on Turkey 'genocide'

The Obama administration has said it will seek to block a controversial bill describing as genocide the World War I killing of Armenians by Turks.

A congressional panel on Thursday approved the resolution, paving the way for a possible vote by the House.

But US Secretary of State Hillary Clinton said the administration would "work very hard" to prevent this.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

"After all, Israel holds the intellectual property rights to "holocaust' and 'genocide' and paying attention to any other mass killings threatens Israel's sole and exclusive rights to play perpetual victim as a key part of its political foundation!" -- Official White Horse Souse

Indonesian students protest Barack Obama's visit

Scores of Islamic students staged protests outside Jakarta's parliament and in at least three other major Indonesian cities on Friday against President Barack Obama's upcoming visit to this predominantly Muslim country.

The students carried banners branding Obama as an enemy of Islam and an imperialist in downtown Jakarta as well as in the provincial capitals Padang, Yogyakarta and Surabaya.

They also threw shoes at large pictures of Obama's head. An Iraqi journalist was sentenced to a year in prison for throwing his shoes at U.S. President George W. Bush during a news conference in Baghdad in 2008.

British Pound in for a Sharp Fall?

And when confidence wanes, capital flees … a surefire recipe for falling dominoes. That’s especially true in the wake of a deep global recession that has left many countries with bloated deficits and debt loads.

Despite the European leadership’s attempt to lessen the sense of urgency in the euro zone and despite the ambitious plans rolling out to shave outsized deficits, the problems with governments’ finances are not finding a resolution.

More likely, it’s just the beginning of another major destabilizing force for the global economy. And the result is looking more like another bout with recession … or perhaps depression.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

The "Let's think happy thoughts" theory of economic recovery has flopped.

This time Max Keiser and co-host, Stacy Herbert, look at the scandals behind: 'the owner of Great Britain' bouncing a $54 million check for a pile of dirt in the Persian Gulf; a currency speculator in Monaco moving currency markets with an 'accidental Jim Rogers press release' while Colonel Gaddafi calls for jihad against Switzerland and receives zero market impact; and Alan Greenspan wins major award for causing up global financial markets to explode. Keiser also talks to David DeGraw about his new book, "The Economic Elite versus the People of the United States of America."

Frank Asks Bernanke to Probe Fed on Watergate, Iraq

March 3 (Bloomberg) -- House Financial Services Committee Chairman Barney Frank asked Federal Reserve Chairman Ben S. Bernanke to investigate allegations of Fed involvement in the Watergate scandal and Iraqi weapons purchases in the 1970s and 1980s.

Frank, 69, said the Fed must address the charges because “continued concern about political interference” with the Fed and “allegations about a lack of transparency.” Bernanke and other Fed officials are trying to fend off a measure offered by Paul, which passed the House in December, that would open the Fed to audits of interest-rate decisions......

Percentage of GDP to External Debt: Default is Inevitable

With the newscasts focusing on Iceland's external debt and Soros betting against the euro, some seem to forget that the problem spreads beyond the PIGS. Here is a list of the Top 20 Nations with an external debt problem. Greece is #16. The UK is #3, Switzerland is #2.

Does anyone really believe that the citizens of these countries will become permanent slaves to make good on the debts procured by their "representatives" in government?

So when are you going to make war on Israel, Mr Brown?

Alan Hart highlights the double standard displayed by British Prime Minister Gordon Brown at the Iraq Inquiry on 5 March, where he sought to justify the aggression against Iraq on the grounds of Iraq’s non-compliance with international law – something Israel has been doing for 62 years.

”for 62 years the Zionist state of Israel has been, and continues to be, the biggest single violator of international law. No state on Planet Earth has been allowed to get away with defying UN resolutions for so long. And, I say, no state poses a bigger threat to the peace of the region and the world than Israel on its present course.”

Chavez mocks Clinton as "blond Condoleezza"

Venezuela's President Hugo mocked Secretary of State Hillary Clinton on Friday as a "blond" version of her predecessor, and said a row with Spain over alleged links with rebel groups was over.

"To me, she's like Condoleezza Rice ... a blond Condoleezza," said the Venezuelan, referring to former U.S. president George W. Bush's secretary of state, with whom he exchanged frequent harsh words at long-distance.

Video satire: President Obama rejects the narrow, dogmatic views of the Jedi

*hyperlinks and video live at source*

Derrick C. Crowe’s latest 3-minute video below compares President Obama’s rejection speech of peace (and here) to the widely popular Star Wars artistic presentation of a republic descending into fascism.

The strategy to rip constitutional restraint in the story was a false flag attack, which is a distinct strategy planned for operation by the US government to kill Americans, blame Iran, and launch a “defensive” war.

CameronFanSite’s Channel presents a 10 minute artistic explanation of how governments use false flag attacks to create public support to wage Wars of Aggression, also below.

Please let Mr. Obama’s lies in his speech sink in and touch your heart’s passion for justice. He said,

Minimum Wage, Maximum Teenage Joblessness

Artificially raising wages for unskilled workers reduces the demand for those workers at the same time that it increases the number of unskilled workers looking for work, which results in an excess supply of unskilled workers. Period. And another term for an "excess supply of unskilled workers" is an "increase in the teenage jobless rate." Despite the wishful thinking of politicians and labor unions, the laws of supply and demand are not optional.
