As a trained economist, I have never, ever heard of or read about "Trickle Down" in numerous Economics classes. Supply side has worked under Wilson, Coolidge, Truman, JFK, Reagan, Clinton, and Bush II. When mislead Liberals like Jones and Roll complain about the Bush II tax cuts and the wealthy, these complaints have no basis in reality. Numerous non-profit tax foundations have found that the Bush tax cuts increased tax rates for the wealthy. In addition, the JFK tax cuts were much larger than the Reagan and Bush II tax cuts. Moreover, military spending was a much larger percentage of the Federal budget under JFK than Reagan or Bush II. 50 percent of the oil used in the United States is produced in the United States(New York Times Almanac). Most of the rest of the oil is produced in Canada and Mexico(New York Times Almanac). If you are curious, the oil from Iraq comes in at York Times Almanac). It was Jamie Gorelick(Clinton advisor) who prevented the FBI and CIA from talking to each other before 9-11(Wall ...
This is from:of the Bankers At the turn of the 20th century, a plan to slowly take over the government of the United States began to unfold. Many works have been written about the Nazi machine that instigated two World Wars, though few have traced the footsteps of the foreign financiers and the actors we prefer to call “politicians.” A brief glance at shipping records, passenger manifests, and financial transactions on Wall Street indicates a pattern of deception which was masterminded by this same machine. The level of cooperation from government agencies and their elected officials was not only disgraceful, but blatantly treasonous. In his book, “The Creature From Jekyll Island,” [1] author G. Edward Griffin described the secret meetings which created the Federal Reserve in 1913. The architect of the plan, Paul M. Warburg, was a representative of the Rothschild banks in England and France and his brother Felix headed the Warburg banks in Germany and the Netherlands. Of significance is the fact t ...

George Washington: On April 30, 1789, George Washington, standing on the balcony of Federal Hall on Wall Street in New York, took his oath of office as the first President of the United States. "As the first of every thing, in our situation will serve to establish a Precedent," he wrote James Madison, "it is devoutly wished on my part, that these precedents may be fixed on true principles." Born in 1732 into a Virginia planter family, he learned the morals, manners, and body of knowledge requisite for an 18th century Virginia gentleman. He pursued two intertwined interests: military arts and western expansion. At 16 he helped survey Shenandoah lands for Thomas, Lord Fairfax. Commissioned a Lieutenant Colonel in 1754, he fought the first skirmishes of what grew into the French and Indian War. The next year, as an aide to Gen. Edward Braddock, he escaped injury although four bullets ripped his coat and two horses were shot from under him. From 1759 to the outbreak of the American Revolution, Washington mana ...
The oil industry, with its history of booms and busts, appears to be in the early stages of its latest downturn. The price of oil has plunged in recent months, reaching its lowest point in more than five years. Q: Why is the price of oil dropping so fast? Why now? A: This a complicated question, but it boils down to the simple economics of supply and demand. U.S. domestic production has nearly doubled over the last six years, pushing out oil imports that need to find another home. Saudi, Nigerian and Algerian oil that once found a home in the United States is suddenly competing for Asian markets, and the producers are forced to drop prices. On the demand side, the economies of Europe and developing countries are weakening and vehicles are becoming more energy-efficient. So demand for fuel is lagging a bit. Q: Who benefits from the price drop? A: Any motorist can tell you gasoline prices have dropped more than a dollar a gallon in recent months. Diesel, heating oil and natural gas prices have also fallen s ...
Subject: Fwd: History Lesson on Your Social Security Card For any Progressives, this is what one can expect with liberal Democrat thinking. And lets not forget that the âFat Catsâ on Wall Street provide as much or more money to Democrats than Republicans. Happy New Year Vote Conservative History Lesson on Your Social Security Card Just in case some of you young whippersnappers (& some older ones) didn't know this.

News and Society Since the "Greed is Good" speech delivered by Gecko in Wall Street in the eighties, we in the developed west have taken it for granted that companies making profits regardless of consequences is the best way forward for our world economy.

Hitler took over the reins at the time of the Great Depression. There were 6,000,000 unemployed in Germany (about 30 percent of the working population) and 11,000,000 unemployed in the United States. But “within two years [Hitler’s] schemes for the regeneration of the German people astonished everyone. While the Ship of State in America was lumbering rudderless in stormy seas, Hitler was steering his bark into comparatively calm water at home. Never was such a feat excelled, and he drew from Churchill and many others praise never before given to a European politician.” The transformation really seemed miraculous. Industry was booming. Unemployment was wiped out. Savings began to climb. The German peasant, who had been on the verge of utter ruin, was given an honored status as the source of the nation’s food supply, his land was released from the grip of the Jewish usurer and measures taken to ensure that it should “remain permanently in the possession of one family, handed down from father to so ...

The United States of America constitutes a vast continent in the temperate zone of North America, bordered by two great oceans to the east and west and by the Canadian arctic to the north. This geography grants Americans a large measure of safety and separation from the infernal conflicts that dominate much of the globe. Yet, it cannot be denied that technology has shrunk geographical distance. The world of geopolitics is simply smaller than it ever has been. The 9/11 attack on the American homeland, the impetus for which originated in the remote hills of Afghanistan, is the most obvious example of this. Then there is the new world of global financial markets, whereby stock movements in East Asia and Europe can instantaneously affect Wall Street. And, of course, as recent headlines show, there is the spread of disease, whereby a small country in West Africa suddenly looms geopolitically vital. In short, the United States is more vulnerable than ever before to events in the outside world, and more influenc ...
- The dollar surged to a three-week high and government bond yields rose on Thursday, one day after the U.S. Federal Reserve took a more hawkish tone in its assessment of the economy as it announced the end of its six-year bond-buying program. Global equity markets rose, led by a late-day surge on Wall Street, following the release of surprisingly strong third-quarter economic growth in the United States. The Fed's decision to halt new purchases of Treasury bonds and mortgage-backed securities had been expected. But investors were somewhat surprised by the Central Bank's expression of confidence in the U.S. recovery, despite global growth concerns. The policy statement prompted markets to rethink the growing consensus that the Fed's first interest-rate hike would not be until late in 2015. The Fed did note in its statement Wednesday after its meeting that overnight borrowing costs would remain near zero for a "considerable time." "The tone in the statement was relatively more hawkish than had been anticip ...

Bad Season For Democrats By *** MORRIS Published on TheHill.com on October 14, 2014 Can it get much worse for President Obama? With the Stock Market in free fall, Ebola making its way to the United States, the Islamic State in Iraq and Syria (ISIS) sitting just an hour outside of Baghdad and ObamaCare premium increases leaking out before the midterm elections, it's hard to see how things could get worse for the president. But they can, and they will. To start with, Wall Street isn't done crashing. Close observers have been predicting a crash out of proportion to any we have ever seen -now their warnings are beginning to come true. The Dow has fluctuated nearly 1,000 points -- about 6 percent of its value -- in the past month. Some experts are predicting a crash down to 5,000, with stocks losing more than two-thirds of their value. Economist Jim Fitzgibbon notes that, in the past 15 months, the smart institutional money has left the market and has been replaced with investments by individuals. The data su ...
Asian stocks got off to shaky start on Monday in step with a steep decline on Wall Street as worries about global economic growth sapped confidence, keeping crude oil prices stuck near four-year lows. MSCI's broadest index of Asia-Pacific shares outside Japan fell 0.5 percent, extending last week's 1.1 percent drop. Australia's S&P/ASX 200 index (.AXJO) dipped 0.5 percent, while South Korea's KOSPI (.KS11) slid 0.8 percent. Japanese financial markets are closed on Monday and other major centers including the United States and Canada will be partially, or fully, shut for holidays as well. The declines in Asian markets came after U.S. stocks (.SPX) skidded 1.2 percent on Friday and Wall Street's fear gauge, the CBOE Volatility Index (.VIX), jumped to a near two-year high. At an International Monetary Fund and World Bank meeting in Washington on Saturday, IMF member countries called for bold action to bolster the global economic recovery and flagged Europe as a top concern. The sell-off on Friday was brutal. ...
LEADING GERMAN JOURNALIST: CIA MEDIA PUSHING FOR World War! 10-10-2014 Udo Ulfkotte, a former editor of Frankfurter Allgemeine Zeitung, one of the largest newspapers in Germany, admits he worked for the CIA. “I’ve been a journalist for about 25 years, and I’ve been educated to lie, to betray, and not to tell the truth to the public,” Ulfkotte told Russia Today. “I was supported by the Central Intelligence Agency, the CIA. Why? Because I am pro-American.” He decided to tell the truth about corporate media controlled by the financial class because he fears war in Europe. “The German and American media tries to bring war to the people in Europe, to bring war to Russia. This is a point of no return, and I am going to stand up and say… it is not right what I have done in the past, to manipulate people, to make propaganda against Russia.” Ulfkotte said most corporate media journalists in the United States and Europe are “so-called non-official cover,” they work for an intelligence agency. ...
50 THINGS TO DO IN WINCHESTER-CLARK COUNTY: Catch the spirit…of the American Dough Boy! In 1920, after two years of extensive research, E.M. Viquesney patented his sculpture honoring the brave World War I American soldiers' ultimate sacrifice and the establishment of a lasting peace. The Smithsonian Institute has documented 159 locations of these sculptures throughout the country. Eight reside in the Bluegrass State, one of which is located on corner of Cleveland and Wall Street at rear of Clark County Courthouse. One of the most reproduced life-size sculptures in the United States is a memorial statue of a World War I American soldier. Our soldiers in that war were popularly called “Doughboys,” and the statue’s proper name is “Spirit of The American Doughboy.”The Doughboy sculpture is pressed copper wrap hanging on an interior frame utilizing the same method of construction as the Statue of Liberty. The official dedication for the Doughboy was November 11, 1929. At that time the sculpture was ...

Wall Street slips after two-day rally; energy shares fall on lower oil prices: United States stocks ended lower on Tuesday, snapping a two-day rally as energy shares tumbled on sliding oil prices. The pullback occurred on light volume typical of mid-August. Traders rushed to sell the stock of handbag and accessory maker and retailer Kate Spade & Co, which plummeted 25.4 percent to close at $29.00 in its busiest day of trading ever with 52 million shares changing hands. Kate Spade & Co reported better-than-expected sales, which had helped lift the stock to a seven-year-high at $42.87 in early trading. The stock reversed course, though, after the company warned that gross margins would be weaker than expected for the year. The S&P 500 energy sector index ended down 0.7 percent in sync with the drop in oil prices. Southwestern Energy Co shares fell 2.8 percent to $38.21, while Consol Energy Inc shares ended down 2.4 percent at $39.49. The two stocks were the biggest losers in the S&P energy index.

Jacqueline Lee (Bouvier) Kennedy Onassis (pronounced /ˌˈdʒækliːn ˈliː ˈbuːvieɪ/)commonly known as "Jackie" (July 28, 1929 – May 19, 1994) was the wife of the 35th President of the United States, John F. Kennedy, and First Lady of the United States during his presidency from 1961 until his assassination in 1963. Five years later she married Greek shipping magnate Aristotle Onassis; they remained married until his death in 1975. For the final two decades of her life, Jacqueline Kennedy Onassis had a career as a book editor. She is remembered for her contributions to the arts and preservation of historic architecture, her style, elegance, and grace. She was a fashion icon; her famous ensemble of pink Chanel suit and matching pillbox hat has become symbolic of her husband's assassination and one of the lasting images of the 1960s. Jacqueline Lee Bouvier was born in Southampton, New York in 1929, to Wall Street stockbroker John Vernou "Black Jack" Bouvier III (1891–1957) and Janet Norton Lee (190 ...
“Who Owns the U.S. Stock Market?” by Pam and Russ Martens Fri, July 11, 2014 Serious observers of Wall Street are increasingly asking this question: could a group of trading venues with giant pools of capital, operating in the dark, using high-speed algorithms and artificial intelligence that has a massive historical database and gets smarter with each micro-second trade — effectively own the Stock Market. Today, we take a look at the massive trading control exercised by just five Wall Street firms.JPMorgan Chase, Bank of America and Citigroup jointly control trillions of dollars in commercial bank deposits with thousands of branch bank buildings stretching across the United States scooping up the life savings of everyday Joes who have no clue these are also the Masters of the Universe on Wall Street. Goldman Sachs and Morgan Stanley also own FDIC insured banks. Goldman Sachs Bank USA, as of March 31, 2014, has $104.7 billion in assets; Morgan Stanley Bank, N.A., as of the same date, has $108.8 bill ...
America, Politics Like No Other … by Gordon Duff, VT Editor … with New Eastern Outlook, Moscow - First published … June 20, 2014 - For God and country - or maybe not For God and country – or maybe not While the world is watching elections, Ukraine, Egypt and Syria, the rightist sweep of the EU, few understand the potential for world disaster tied to the upcoming “midterm” elections in the United States. No president will be elected but the ability to control American foreign policy and wield America’s military machine, entrenched in 150 nations around the world, is likely to increasingly be turned over to a cabal of extremist with no ties, whatsoever, to any real political movement. America isn’t Europe, there is no “electorate” to influence, no party coalitions. There are some realities that have to be accepted in order to *** what are very real risks to world security. The great failure in Europe and elsewhere is the broad assumptions continually made about US politics, ...
Barack Obama- October 30, 2008 "After decades of broken politics in Washington, and eight years of failed policies from George W. Bush, and 21 months of a campaign that's taken us from the rocky coast of Maine to the sunshine of California, we are five days away from fundamentally transforming the United States of America. In five days, you can turn the page on policies that put greed and irresponsibility on Wall Street before the hard work and sacrifice of folks on Main Street. In five days, you can choose policies that invest in our Middle Class, and create new jobs, and grow this economy, so that everyone has a chance to succeed, not just the CEO, but the secretary and janitor, not just the factory owner, but the men and women on the factory floor. In five days, you can put an end to the politics that would divide a nation just to win an election, that tries to pit region against region, and city against town, and Republican against Democrat, that asks us to fear at a time when we need to hope." Now th ...
I watched movie: “Inside Job” about the 2007-2008 economic crash. The movie begins in Iceland in 2000. Deregulation in Iceland of banks and privatization of banks caused the economic collapse in Iceland. The banks borrowed too much money. Iceland banks collapsed in 2008. Unemployment triples and people lose their savings. There is no government regulation. One third of financial regulators work for the banks. On September 15, 2008- Merril Lynch goes bankrupt in United States. Lehman Brothers and AIG also file for bankruptcy. There is a Global Recession that doubles the national debt. This crisis is caused by the American financial sector. Part 1: How We Got Here? Investment banks go public and Wall Street gets rich off of investments. The Reagan Administration deregulated Wall Street in the 1980’s. Alan Greenspan supported deregulation and high risk banking. In the 1990’s- There was a banking consolidation monopoly. Investment banks fueled the Internet bubble. There were no regulations to stop th ...

"Politics under democracy consists almost wholly of the discovery, chase, and scotching of bugaboos. The statesman becomes, in the last analysis, a mere witch-hunter, a glorified smeller and snooper, eternally chanting "Fe, Fi, Fo, Fum!" It has been so in the United States since the earliest days. The whole history of the country has been a history of melodramatic pursuits of horrendous monsters, most of them imaginary: the red-coats, the Hessians, the monocrats, again the red-coats, the Bank, the Catholics, Simon Legree, the Slave Power, Jeff Davis, Mormonism, Wall Street, the rum demon, John Bull, the *** hounds of plutocracy, the trusts, General Weyler, Pancho Villa, German spies, hyphenates, the Kaiser, Bolshevism. The list might be lengthened indefinitely; a complete chronicle of the Republic could be written in terms of it, and without omitting a single important episode." ~ H.L. Mencken
NUMBERS I want to try and impress upon you exactly “WHAT” America is today because I sense most of the world is simply walking around ignorant of these facts. What I am going to try to describe to you is quite important. It is how you and your family will live in the very near future. Whether you see it or not, there is an organized concerted effort to ELIMINATE the Middle Class in America. THIS IS ME AND YOU! This country had spent many years building up the Middle Class by creating good paying Middle Class jobs; industry and manufacturing, medical and high tech IT computer programmers and such. Beginning in the early 1990’s and the signing of NAFTA the United States of America began sending these Middle Class jobs out of the country to Asian and Indian nations. This offshoring became very popular as stock holders saw higher returns on investment as corporate costs fell with cheaper labor. In short Wall Street did it and you were okay with it as your 401K also went up. During this time, two ...

The Scam Wall Street Learned From the Mafia Capo How America’s biggest banks took part in a nationwide bid-rigging conspiracy – until they were caught on tape Someday, it will go down in history as the first trial of the modern American mafia. Of course, you won’t hear the recent financial corruption case, United States of America v. Carollo, Goldberg and Grimm, called anything like that. If you heard about it at all, you’re probably either in the municipal bond business or married to an antitrust lawyer. Even then, all you probably heard was that a threesome of bit players on Wall Street got convicted of obscure antitrust violations in one of the most inscrutable, jargon-packed legal snoozefests since the government’s massive case against Microsoft in the Nineties – not exactly the thrilling courtroom drama offered by the famed trials of old-school mobsters like Al Capone or Anthony “Tony Ducks” Corallo. But this just-completed trial in downtown New York against three faceless financial e ...
WHAT WHITE FOLKS DONT WANT BLACKS TO KNOW The United States of America Slavery transformed America into an economic power. The exploitation of black people for free labor made the South the richest and most politically powerful region in the country. British demand for American cotton made the southern stretch of the Mississippi River the Silicon Valley of its era, boasting the single largest concentration of the nation’s millionaires. But slavery was a national enterprise. Many firms on Wall Street such as JPMorgan Chase, New York Life and now-defunct Lehman Brothers made fortunes from investing in the slave trade the most profitable economic activity in New York’s 350 year history. Slavery was so important to the city that New York was one of the most pro-slavery urban municipalities in the North. According to Harper’s magazine (November 2000), the United States stole an estimated $100 trillion for 222,505,049 hours of forced labor between 1619 and 1865, with a compounded interest of 6 percent.

I opposed the bailouts for Wall Street. I regard the Federal Reserve as a corrupt cabal of international banksters, whose actions are nothing short of criminal. I wholeheartedly support the abolition of the Federal Reserve and a return to sound money. I believe the United Nations is a sinister organization from which the United States should withdraw. I believe the federal government taxes too much, spends too much, lies too much, and snoops too much into the personal lives of the American people. I believe the federal "war on terror" and "war on drugs" is mostly a cover for power-hungry, big-government zealots to trample constitutional government and squash freedoms and liberties, which are supposed to be protected by the Bill of Rights and Declaration of Independence.
Teachers never were treated with much respect in the United States, but until recently they weren't demonized or singled out as responsible for the nation's problems and weaknesses. What has changed? That public education is now viewed as a major opportunity for profitable investment if it can be privatized or reorganized to allow for continuous testing and assessment. When the housing market tanked, Wall Street and Silicon Valley started looking at Education as a new frontier for creative entrepreneurship, but to take advantage of it, teachers unions had to be neutralized or destroyed, teachers voices had to be silenced, parents had to be seduced by the prospect of enormous new opportunities for their children through advanced technology and civil rights groups had to be convinced that these reforms were a step toward greater Equity.   The program they unleashed on the public almost worked. Leaders of both political parties were persuaded to back it, and commercial media gave it their complete support. ...
Here is a timeline summary of the raping and pillaging of the People and City workers of Detroit by Wall Street, Snake Snyder and the Republicans of the State of Michigan who themselves were much more fiscally irresponsible than Detroit: 2008 and 2009: Wall Street banks are bailed out of insolvency by the People of the United States , including the federal tax payers of Detroit for trillions of dollars ( a trillion is a thousand billion; a billion is a thousand million). The Wall Streeters claim that the whole financial system is at risk , so even banks that are not insolvent are at risk and effectively bailed out of failure. Later some of these banks will force the bankruptcy of the City of Detroit and demand that they be paid instead of city workers, pensions and services. General Motors and Chrysler are bailed out of bankruptcy for tens of billions of dollars by the People of the US ,including Detroit taxpayers. -State of Michigan is in serious fiscal crisis and irresponsibility due to what the media t ...
Happy Birthday: April 12, 1915 (1984): Soia Mentschikoff was an American lawyer, law professor, legal scholar and law school dean, best known for her work in the development and drafting of the Uniform Commercial Code. She served as dean of University of Miami School of Law. She was also the first woman to teach at Harvard Law School.

While at the University of Chicago, Mentschikoff became involved in the development of international commercial law. In 1964, she represented the United States at a diplomatic conference at the Hague, where she pushed for a uniform law governing international sales and arbitration.
The Gambling boss Who Runs America. By Press.Tv The most powerful man in America, in what America loves to call “the Free World” isn’t the President of the United States, not even close. Sheldon Adelson runs America. Who is Sheldon Adelson? Adelson is an American born “dual citizen,” of Ukrainian/Jewish ancestry.  He runs the largest casinos in the world, not just in Las Vegas, a city both established and controlled by organized crime, but in Macao as well. Born in 1933, Adelson is a true “self-made” man, moving from Wall Street to real estate and eventually into gambling and “other” endeavors. Adelson is accused of lots of things but with personal wealth beyond estimate, certainly more than $50 billion dollars, Adelson writes his own history. What is different about Adelson, what makes him different from the Koch Brothers or other “super-villains” is that he buys and sells politicians openly.  He never makes an attempt to hide the fact that he is in the United States on behalf of ...
my sister asked me to write a short story about my nephew for him to share with his class. here's what i've got: Aidan is a middle child. You might think that he would disappear between his older and younger brothers, especially because of who his brothers are. His older brother, Joshua, is a wrestler in Luche Libre, and is very famous in both Mexico and Japan. He’s known as “El Mono Manico” or “The Manic Monkey.” Seven World Championships are his. Most luchadores tremble at the mention of his signature moves, The Ankle Nibble and The Dreaded Toenail Shear. His little brother, Hunter, is the youngest Wall Street business man in the United States. Known for both his uncanny predictions and his wild temper, he has built an empire. There are many photographs of him in the newspapers, running through the New York Stock Exchange, screaming, knocking drinks and notebooks from people’s hands before ripping off his suit and rolling into a pile of money. With these two brothers, you might think Aidan . ...

The Gold-Standard: Killed by Nixon 40 Years Ago, Today Posted by Brittany Stepniak - Monday, August 15th, 2011 August 15, 1971: The date in which U.S. President Richard Nixon altered the American economy in a drastic way... In a public broadcast, televised on TV 3, Nixon ended the Bretton Woods International Monetary System. The United States saw the end of an era -- the end of the gold-standard. In its place, the Nixon administration administered the modern fiat monetary system; what would eventually evolve into an arguably "epic catastrophe." Poised, yet dramatic, Nixon firmly announced the changes to be instituded immediately. See the video below: Nixon's decision would forever impact the future of our financial and economic policies. Some call it a "seminal moment" in what would eventually become the moden-day global debt crisis, debilitating the U.S. and Europe on an international level. On that premise Fast forward 40 years from Nixon's speech to today and gold has fallen in all major currencies exc ...
Excerpts: [Nixon greeting a young *** Cheney with Donald Rumsfeld in the background, the two men responsible for such atrocities of the 9/11 scandal.] Nixon: A Corporate Puppet According to a biography of Richard Nixon, his close personal and political ties with the Bush family go back to 1941 when Nixon claims he read an ad in an L A. newspaper, placed by a wealthy group of Wall Street businessmen, led by Prescott Bush, the father of George H. W. Bush. They wanted a young, malleable candidate to run for Congress. Nixon applied for the position and won the job. Nixon became a mouthpiece for the Bush group. In fact, Prescott Bush is credited with creating the winning ticket of Eisenhower-Nixon in 1952. At the same time George H. W. Bush had been chairman of the Eisenhower-Nixon campaign in Midland, Texas, in 1952 and 1956. The Bush Administration regime has gone on for more than one presidency, as the family is directly involved in a great number of United States policy’s and business. Huge scandals poi ...
Ukraine, Flight 370, and the Electrical Grid The month of March has not been a comforting one for those of us who are concerned about America’s security. The news in Eastern Europe, SouthEast Asia, and right here in the United States is of a world full of threats for which the Obama Administration is unprepared. In Europe, Vladimir Putin has invaded a sovereign country and annexed part of its territory with little more than verbal protest from the United States and Europe in response. Ukrainian officials reportedly are begging the U.S. for military aid, probably the minimum step Putin would take seriously. We could arm Ukraine without putting a single American soldier at risk, but after nearly three weeks of Russian aggression there, the U.S. has yet to grant the aid request. Instead, we’ve responded with meaningless gestures--slapping sanctions on the U.S. assets of just seven individual Russian officials. This for invading a European country. As the New Yorker joked, if Putin isn’t careful, we mig ...
FDIC Sues 16 Mega-Banks and British Banks' Association Over LIBOR Interest-Rate Rigging On Friday the Federal Deposit Insurance Corporation filed suit against 16 of the world's mega-banks, and against the British Banks' Association, for colluding to rig the interest-rate-reference figure, the Libor (London Interbank Offered Rate). This action follows many other lawsuits against Wall Street banks for Libor-rigging, filed over the last 50 months by municipalities and other entities looted by the mega-banks through Libor-based interest rate swaps and other scams. The pattern and evidence of fraud are overwhelming, which only shows the necessity to stop the whole game, by re-instating the Glass-Steagall Act in the United States. Legislation is ready and waiting in Congress. The new FDIC lawsuit, filed in the Federal District of New York, charges that the conduct of the accused entities caused significant losses to 38 banks that the FDIC had to take into receivership since 2008. This list of stricken banks inc ...
I technically don't swear, and hate swearing. But this is overwhelming. Just so you know, if they have American Hustle, Nebraska, The Wolf of Wall Street and August: Osage County as Oscars nominations, so I'm free to swear for the moment. People have written swearers and have nominated them for The Bests in film industry in the United States, then I should do the same. Who knows someday I could win Best Writing Original Screenplay at the Oscars? Why not if it is really reality? I'm proud of my choices and feel pity for those AMPAS people. They could make history, great products and inspire people. But at the end of the day, among the right choices, there are still some avalanches which bury the deserved ones, and honor the less deserved ones. If you can't move on in your life, but keep chewing shadows of the past, then you're the one who have problems, not me. The AMPAS people make history, and they're powerful. I don't have any power on it, but I could make history by saying something from my heart (even ...
George Soros is making his move, tripling the amount of money he spent through his Open Society Policy Center and agreeing to co-chair the finance committee of the Ready for Hillary super PAC. That follows $100 million in spending on immigration reform, and many millions more to infiltrate Higher Education and sponsor groups dedicated to the destruction of the United States. Soros has donated 50 times more to universities than the combined donations of both Koch Brothers. We're fighting against George Soros and the ideology he represents, where America is destroyed from within through currency collapse and economic implosion so that our nation can be removed as an obstacle to Soros's ultimate goal: unfettered crony capitalism, the kind that got Soros convicted of insider trading in France in 2002. That's right: while Hillary Clinton and Barack Obama publicly castigate Wall Street, behind the scenes they're bankrolled by a man convicted of insider trading, and his wealthy cronies on Wall Street who receive ...
The prestigious Wall Street investment firm Bear Stearns recently published a report, The Underground Labor Force is Rising to the Surface, which claims that the illegal alien population is double the official government estimates and that the Government vastly underestimates the cost of illegal immigration. According to Bear Stearns: •The illegal alien population of the U.S. is about 20 million - roughly the population of New York State. •Between 4 and 6 million jobs have shifted to the underground economy since 1990. These are not "jobs Americans won't do, but rather jobs Americans used to do. •On the revenue side, the United States may be foregoing $35 billion a year in income tax collections because of the number of jobs that are now off the books. •There are approximately 5 million illegal workers who are collecting wages on a cash basis and are avoiding both income and FICA taxes. •The United States is hooked on cheap, illegal workers and is deferring the costs of providing public service ...
All I hear is free Venezuela, all I see are faces painted with the colors of the Venezuelan flag. And while I want nothing but the best for my fellow brothers and sisters on the South American continent, I can't help but laugh and shake my head at what's transpiring. A Free Venezuela? What about a free United States, liberated from the oppressive veil of capitalism? What about a free Puerto Rico? Liberated from its status as an island backwater of the U.S. You stare in shock at the countless videos and images posted by biased media outlets with their super agendas but it doesn't worry you that Chicago recorded over 500 murders last year, that Newark is a killing field, that their's many an individual, adult and child alike, that is living below the poverty line, struggling to acquire the most basic of necessities here within the boundaries of the richest nation on Earth. It doesn't concern you that we are owned by Wall Street, that Leopoldo, the head of the Venezuelan opposition is a Harvard grad, an econ ...
Foreign Banks Bracing For Tough US Fed Capital Rules. - reuters.com 2/16/2014 - 8:am EST WASHINGTON, Feb 16 (Reuters) – Overseas banks look set to win only minor concessions when the Federal Reserve signs off on new capital rules next week, as they become increasingly resigned to the fact that the cost of doing business in the United States will go up. The Fed whose board of governors meets on Tuesday will require overseas banks to hold as much capital in the United States as their local rivals. The reform is designed to address concerns that the U.S. taxpayers will need to foot the bill if European and Asian regulators treat U.S. subsidiaries with low priority if they need to rescue one of their banks. Foreign banks with sizeable operations on Wall Street such as Deutsche Bank and Barclays have pushed back hard against the plan because it means they will need to transfer costly capital from Europe.
Jacob Henry Schiff (born Jakob Heinrich Schiff; January 10, 1847 – September 25, 1920) was an American banker, businessman, and philanthropist. He helped finance, among many other things, the Japanese military efforts against Tsarist Russia in the Russo-Japanese War. Born in Frankfurt, Germany, Schiff migrated to the United States after the American Civil War, and joined the firm Kuhn, Loeb & Co.[1] From his base on Wall Street, he was the foremost Jewish leader from 1880 to 1920 in what later became known as the "Schiff era", grappling with all major Jewish issues and problems of the day, including the plight of Russian Jews under the Tsar, American and international anti-semitism, care of needy Jewish immigrants, and the rise of Zionism.[2][3] He also became the director of many important corporations, including the National City Bank of New York, Equitable Life Assurance Society, Wells Fargo & Company, and the Union Pacific Railroad. In many of his interests he was associated with E.H. Harriman.
Analysis: Israeli natural gas fields hold big promise for Noble Energy: Noble Energy Inc (NBL.N) slashed the risks to its colossal Israeli natural gasproject by selling a stake to Australia's largest oil producer and sealing a crucial supply deal with a Palestinian power company in one of the world's political flash points. Both steps, carefully choreographed over the past month, should help Noble achieve its goal of doubling production by 2018 and mitigate Wall Street's fears about the company's prospects in the politically unstable region. In a deal worth $2.55 billion in cash and future revenue, Australia's Woodside Petroleum (WPL.AX) agreed last week to help Houston-based Noble Energy and three Israeli companies develop the offshore natural gas field Leviathan. The field, along with smaller ones nearby, holds nearly 40 trillion cubic feet of natural gas, the same amount consumed each year in the United States. The deal came a month after the Noble Energy consortium signed a $1.2 billion contract to b ...
"The United States is fast racking up characteristics of a Third World nation. Its finances are Third World. Its president is Third World. Its banking integrity is Third World. Its absent industry is Third World. Its decaying cities are Third World. It urgently begs for a Third World currency, but that is soon to be remedied. The nation has been a freeloader on the global reserve currency for too long. That is about to end. For the last three years, the United States has been living in a fairy tale with bailouts from the vast bond monetizations. The Quantitative Easing with its amplified bond purchases and hidden channels to disguise higher volumes has been operating as an historically unprecedented Wall Street bailout and Fannie Mae fraud recycle room. Pressures are building. The USDollar held in foreign jurisdictions is beyond the legal authority of the USGovt, which cannot continue covering its debts with inflation spew in the grandest heretic experiment in history. The solution within the global curre ...
In the United States, Janet Yellen has been sworn in as Chair of the US Central Bank, the Federal Reserve. At the same time Wall Street closed at its lowest level since last June. Her appointment comes at a time when the US economy appears to be improving. She had already taken up her functions since being nominated by President Obama in October and confirmed in her post by the Senate last month.
President Obama will visit Saudi Arabia next month amid reports of a strained American-Saudi relationship over Iran and Syria. White House press secretary Jay Carney announced that Obama would meet with Saudi King Abdullah in late March, calling it "part of regular consultations" between the two countries. "The president looks forward to discussing with King Abdullah the enduring and strategic ties between the United States and Saudi Arabia as well as ongoing cooperation to advance a range of common interests related to Gulf and regional security, peace in the Middle East, countering violent extremism, and other issues of prosperity and security," Carney said. The Saudi stop will be added to a late March trip that includes the Netherlands, Belgium, Italy and Vatican City. Obama and King Abdullah also met in 2009 and 2010. The Wall Street Journal, citing Arab officials who have been briefed on the trip's preparations, said the meeting with King Abdullah is part of an effort to ease tensions: "Relations bet ...
“Unimaginably, the United States has become a paragon of incompetence in many fields, including strategic thinking. Two trillion dollars and thousands of American lives have been spent in Middle Eastern wars that don't seem to have yielded the U.S. any benefit. Before the astonished eyes of the entire world, Wall Street has been exposed as venal and incompetent, American education has ceased, apart from its very highest echelons, to be competitive, a hundred million Americans receive inferior Health Care, the entire political system has become a hideously expensive, completely cynical image-making and legislative vote-buying operation deadlocked between special interests; and the justice system, upon which America's original claim to be a light of freedom and the rule of law unto the nations was based, has become a conveyor-belt into the bloated and corrupt prison system.” Conrad Black, New York Sun.
The years we grew up were the best times our country went through. I graduated from Maine - Endwell Senior High School in 1966. Even though the world was in turmoil we did not feel that until the last years in High School. 1962 they removed prayer from schools. Then Bible reading was also removed. Soon afterwards abortions were allowed, state by state. Not one country has survived their great powers after killing babies. JFK physical fitness program was getting us to be fit and ready for Viet Nam. Kennedy was killed Nov 22, 1963, The world we knew before starts to crumble. I know you know all this. Then 911,,, God removes the hedge of protections that allows us to be stuck down. Where??? What would become Wall Street, NYC. It was down the road in the chapel that George Washington and the first Congress of the United States dedicates our country to God. On what will become Wall Street is our first Capital of the United States. Yes it was New York City. Today they continue to remove God from our countries . ...
The Los Angeles Times reports that Paramount Pictures is the first major Hollywood studio to ditch 35mm film and go all-digital for United States theater releases, with The Wolf of Wall Street being shipped to theaters in digital format only. Sorry film fans, it sounds like that's a wrap.
The Tulsa Race Riot was a large-scale, racially motivated conflict on May 31 and June 1, 1921, in which whites attacked the black community of Tulsa, Oklahoma. It resulted in the Greenwood District, also known as "the Black Wall Street" and the wealthiest black community in the United States, being burned to the ground. At the time, Tulsa was basically divided into two cities due to old Democrat Jim Crow laws. Whites lived in the southern end of the city and blacks were segregated in the northern section of town. Black-owned businesses stretched along the more than mile-long Greenwood Avenue and included grocery stores, restaurants, medical and law offices and two newspapers. Booker T. Washington, who had lectured in Tulsa, was the first to call Greenwood "the *** s Wall Street." Many white Tulsans, who referred to the district as "Little Africa," were not happy about the growth and prosperity of the community. The underlying racial and economic tension finally boiled over on May 30, 1921 when a 19-yea .. ...
Class warfare is the liberal election strategy in 2014 By Washington Times (DC) January 15, 2014 6:54 am President Obama has all but announced that this fall's House and Senate campaigns should focus not on the collapse of American influence abroad, or on the continuing disaster that we know as Obamacare, or even on the apparent inability of his policies to create jobs, but on "income inequality." The mantra from the administration, like the rantings of the "Occupy" crowd and the new finger-pointing quasi-Marxist mayor of New York City, is that in today's United States, it is impossible to get ahead unless one is born rich, works on Wall Street or finds some other way to profit from the misery of others. Their rhetoric and proposed policies play on envy and remind one of the class warfare that has dominate European politics for so long. Historically, betting on class warfare as a way to win a U.S. election is a bad bet. The United States is not Europe, and Americans have never been envious of the success ...
Many of you probably haven't considered that Cherry Street used to run all the way through the Smith Houses area to intersect with Pearl Street and Dover Street at Franklin Square. This is a view from the 3rd Avenue El running along Pearl Street under the Brooklyn Bridge looking up Cherry Street and the Feast of San Rocco in 1935. Where the anchorage for the bridge is on the right once stood Cherry Street and the mansion home of Samuel Osgood who rented his house to congress for $845.00 a year as the first residence of the first president of the United States. On April 14, 1789 George Washington at his estate in Mount Vernon, VA was informed of the unanimous electoral college vote choosing him as President. (When will that ever happen again? LOL) He arrived in New York 9 days later on April 23, 1789 and moved into the Osgood House. He was inaugurated a week later in Federal Hall - 26 Wall Street at Nassau Street on April 30, 1789. The area was considered 'Uptown' to revolutionary era New Yorkers and Washi ...
On 13 October 1948, President Harry Truman made an appearance in St. Paul, Minnesota, stumping on behalf of both his own re-election campaign and a bid by the mayor of Minneapolis, fellow Democrat Hubert Humphrey, to land a seat in the U.S. Senate. During that appearance in St. Paul, President Truman delivered an address at the city's Municipal Auditorium which was carried on a nationwide radio broadcast and included the criticism of the Republican Party referenced above: Today the forces of liberalism face a crisis. The people of the United States must make a choice between two ways of living — a decision which will affect us the rest of our lives and our children and our grandchildren after us. On the other side, there is the Wall Street way of life and politics. Trust the leader! Let Big Business take care of prices and profits! Measure all things by money! That is the philosophy of the masters of the Republican Party. Well, I have been studying the Republican Party for over 12 years at close hand in ...
Some events in history that happened on January 4th: 1642 - King Charles I with 400 soldiers attacks the English parliament 1698 - Most of the Palace of Whitehall in London, the main residence of the English monarchy, is destroyed by fire 1754 - Columbia University founded as Kings College (NYC) 1847 - Samuel Colt sells his first firearm, a revolver pistol, to the United States Government 1863 - 4 wheeled roller skates patented by James Plimpton of NY 1865 - The New York Stock Exchange opens its headquarters at 10-12 Broad near Wall Street in New York City 1884 - Last known sighting of an eastern cougar (Ontario) 1893 - US President Grover Cleveland grants amnesty to Mormon polygamists 1896 - Following Mormon abandonment of polygamy, Utah is admitted as the 45th U.S. state 1903 - Topsy, a retired circus elephant, is intentionally electrocuted by Thomas Edison during the “War of Currents” campaign over whether AC or DC current was better for public commercial use 1904 - Supreme Court rules Puerto Rican ...
The plan explained “According to every internal document I’ve seen and read, and from the few people I’ve spoken with who understand what’s going on, preparations have been finalized to respond to a crisis of unprecedented magnitude within the United States. The response will include the use of lethal force against U.S. citizens under the instructions of Barack Obama.” But why? “‘It’s the economy, stupid,’” he began, paraphrasing a campaign slogan coined by James Carville for Bill Clinton’s 1992 campaign. ”Just as I disclosed in our first meeting, the crisis will be rooted in an economic collapse. I told you last year, at a time when gold and silver were setting record highs, one specific indicator that time is very short. It is the final ‘smack down’ of the metals, gold and silver, that will presage the orchestrated economic collapse that is being planned by the bankers of Wall Street. Everybody needs to understand that this is a deliberate collapse of the U.S. economy with th ...
Bill de Blasio is now Mayor of New York, whose residents include the world’s richest -- the captains of American industry, the titans of Wall Street. But also 52,000 homeless, of whom 22,000 are children – the highest level of homelessness since the Great Depression. New York is a microcosm of America. The Right sees nothing alarming about this degree of inequality, but it threatens the social fabric of our society, hobbles the economy, and undermines democracy. "We are called to put an end to economic and social inequalities that threaten to unravel the city we love," de Blasio said in his inaugural. "And so today, we commit to a new progressive direction in New York.” Does de Blasio’s election mark the beginning of a new progressive era similar in scope and achievement to the one that began in 1901, when another New Yorker, Teddy Roosevelt, became President of the United States?
End of Dollar System, Theft of a Nation The monetary shock therapy that [US Federal Reserve Chairman Paul] Volcker imposed on the United States [1970s] had been developed and already implemented several months earlier in Britain by Prime Minister Margaret Thatcher. Voicker and his close circle of Wall Street banking friends ... merely imposed Thatcher's monetary shock model onto US conditions. The goal of both was the same-to dramatically roll back the redistribution of wealth and income in their respective countries in favor of the wealthiest 5%, or even fewer. In early May 1979 Margaret Thatcher won election in Britain by campaigning on a platform of "squeezing inflation out of the economy." Thatcher, and her inner circle of Adam Smith 'free market' ideologues, promoted a fraud, insisting that government deficit spending, and not the 140 percent increase in the price of oil since the fall of Iran's Shah, was the chief cause of Britain's 18% rate of price inflation. According to Thatcher's advisers, infl ...
Here's a blast from the past, a 1912 cartoon warning against the banker-supported Aldrich Plan which opened the gate for the creation of the Federal Reserve Bank of the United States, a Central Bank such as President Andrew Jackson was so determined to root out of the American system for he recognized them for the illuminized government take-over artists they were. As you know, the Bankers' Panic of 1907 was used as the justification (cover) for setting up a Central Bank the likes of which have orchestrated financial booms, bubbles, busts, and crashes ever since.

Slashing of Detroit Workers' Pensions is Treason Against the Nation by Bill Roberts “This is worse than a violation: this is treason. That judge, whether he understands it or not, committed treason against the United States. Because he's setting members of the United States against each other's throats on these issues. They're trying to induce people in Michigan, or places which are not Michigan, to say, “well that's a Michigan problem.” It's that mentality. We're a united nation, we are the United States. We are our United States. And we are concerned about everything that effects everything in the United States. And anything of any significance gets treated accordingly.” – Lyndon LaRouche, Dec. 9th, 2013 Last Monday, Federal Bankruptcy Judge Steven Rhodes issued an outrageous ruling that despite protections by the Michigan State Constitution, over 20,000 retired workers' pensions will be placed on the chopping block under Chapter 9 Bankruptcy. While admitting that there were particulars that s ...
Reginald F. Lewis 12/7/42 -1/19/93. Black America has a rich history of successful entrepreneurs and business executives. But none had quite the success in the world of international finance as Reginald F. Lewis. Lewis was a Wall Street financier who, through a number of shrewd business moves, became one of the nation’s richest businessmen and a major force in the world of corporate-takeover deals in the 1980s and 1990s. A lawyer who was raised in Baltimore, Lewis gained attention in the business world in 1987, with his $1 billion acquisition of the international operations of the Beatrice Companies, a food company. With that acquisition, he formed his own company, TLC Beatrice International, and amassed personal assets of $400 million, according toFortune magazine. Additionally, the formation of TLC — which stood for The Lewis Company — led it to become the largest company in the United States that was run by an African-American executive. Lewis was born in 1942 and raised in a middle-class family ...
WHERE IS THE United StateS IN PROPHECY?  POLL:  PUBLIC SAYS AMERICA'S WORLD LEADERSHIP HAS TUMBLED TO 40-YEAR LOW For the first time in nearly 40 years, a majority of Americans believe the United States is less important around the world and that it should mind its own business, a stunning rejection of President Obama’s foreign policy just four years after he received the Nobel Prize. A new Pew Research Center poll found that 53 percent of people believe that the U.S. is playing a less important role as a world leader than a decade ago, the highest figure since 1974. Worse: 70 percent said that the U.S. is respected less than in the past, almost matching the high reached under former President George W. Bush, whose foreign policy Obama pledged to reverse. Other key highlights from Pew’s release: — By a 56 percent to 34 percent margin, more disapprove than approve of Obama’s handling of foreign policy. The public also disapproves of his handling of Syria, Iran, China and Afghanistan by wide margi ...
To me, this very much defines reality- ... does it to you? . I Too Have Become Disillusioned. By Matt Patterson ( columnist – opinion writer) Years from now, historians may regard the 2008 election of Barack Obama as an inscrutable and disturbing phenomenon, the result of a baffling breed of mass hysteria akin perhaps to the witch craze of the Middle Ages. How, they will wonder, did a man so devoid of professional accomplishment beguile so many into thinking he could manage the world's largest economy, direct the world's most powerful military, execute the world's most consequential job? Imagine a future historian examining Obama's pre-presidential life: ushered into and through the Ivy League, despite unremarkable grades and test scores along the way; a cushy non-job as a "community organizer;" a brief career as a state legislator devoid of legislative achievement (and in fact nearly devoid of his attention, so often did he vote "present"); and finally an unaccomplished single term in the United States ...
THE POWER BEHIND OBAMA; This was sent to me by a friend from a anonymous posting, however the information seems quite accurate and deserves to be heard... The Real Powers Behind President Barack Obama Barack Obama is truly not the President of the United States. He is not a powerful person at all. Rather, he is a front man for more powerful entities that hide in the shadows. The real power in the world is not the United States, Russia, or even China. It is Rome. The Roman Catholic Church (Vatican) is the single most powerful force in the world. However, the Vatican has been under the control of it's largest all-male order, the Jesuits. The Jesuits were created in 1534 to serve as the "counter-reformation" -- the arm of the Church that would help to fight the Muslims and the Protestant Reformers. However, they fought with espionage. The Jesuits were expelled from at least 83 countries and cities for subversion, espionage, treason, and other such things. Samuel Morse said that the Jesuits were the foot sold ...
Why teacher colleges get a failing grade BARBARA NEMKO AND HAROLD KWALWASSER Wall Street Journal November 24, 3:04 AM (Posted with Permission of Arkansas Democrat-Gazette) Education gurus in recent years have taken to lamenting the sorry state of teacher training in the United States. Arthur Levine, former president of the Teachers College at Columbia University, wrote a scathing report in 2006 on its deficiencies. Harvard Graduate School of Education Prof. Katherine Merseth made an even glummer assessment in 2009. Four months ago, the National Council on Teacher Quality released a report asserting that approximately 1,100 of the nation’s 1,400 teacher-preparation programs are inadequate. Education Secretary Arne Duncan has dismissed the programs as the “Bermuda Triangle” of Higher Education. How can new teachers be expected to educate children without first having been trained well? The problem is that entrance requirements to most colleges of education are too lax, and the requirements for graduat ...
"Mr. President, today is the 150th anniversary of The Gettysburg Address.. Shall I prepare the helicopter and schedule in your appearance to honor Abraham Lincoln, the United States, and the turning point in the Civil War which was a fight to abolish slavery.. Which Lincoln was passionate about doing? It's only appropriate.. ..."No.. Just make sure I meet up with Wall Street, to talk about how I can redistribute more hard earned wealth by free market Capitalists to abusers of the system.. 2016 will come soon. Gotta try and set up Hilary for easy votes... Oh yeah, make sure you polish my golf clubs.. I think I can squeeze in time for that today."
Whatever your current situation is right now, you need to be focused over the next 18 months, and I mean LASER focused! It’s a time of HUGE Income Opportunity for everyone who has positioned in front of the OrGano Gold wave because we have found an answer to so many peoples prayers with Coffee that makes people FEEL GOOD! The world around you is going crazy and the topic is how the HECK am I going to make ends meet? How can I add extra income to my monthly pay check? Look, the disaster of the 401K Retirement system in the United States is a tragedy fuelled by the incredible greed of Wall Street and we all know this is a fact. If I can quote, “tens of millions” of North Americans, most of them in their 50′s and 60′s have seen their life savings wiped out and the prospect for them to recover those losses is about ZERO. Until now… You have the solution. It’s called taking back responsibility for your OWN financial future. In the words of Public Enemy “You’ve got to take your power back ...
Whistleblowers are raising the alarm around the world Thanong Khanthong The era of whistle-blowing has arrived. In the United States, there are two notable whistleblowers of late - Edward Snowden and Andrew Huszar. Snowden, hero or villain depending on your perspective, has revealed earth-shaking information on the US National Security Agency's extensive clandestine operation to spy on Americans and the countries around the world. Allies are angry with the US because the spying should be directed against the enemy countries - not against friendly countries like the European Union nations. The French and the Germans, in particular, have vented anger at Washington. Indonesia has also protested against a joint US-Australian operation to spy on a summit held in Indonesia. Since the spying has been conducted against "friendly nations", in the broadest definition, it means that US intelligence officials have been attempting to seek crucial information on economics or financial matters for possibly financial gai ...

Here are 25 facts that right-wingers often forget, overlook, omit or ignore. 1. *** Cheney shot another feller in the face with a gun. By mistake. 2. At the conclusion of George W. Bush’s term, the United States economy was losing 750,000 jobs per month. 3. During the last months of George Bush’s second term, the Troubled Asset Relief Program, or TARP, was initiated to save banks and Wall Street from collapse. 4. A national universal healthcare plan based on an individual mandate to obtain coverage was advocated by the Heritage Foundation in 1992 and was the subject of bills introduced by Republican senators in 1994. 5. Barack Hussein Obama looks different from our previous presidents. 6. George W. Bush defeated Al Gore in the 2000 presidential election only after suing the state of Florida to stop counting votes. (Independent recounts after the election by media organizations found that Gore had more votes.) 7. Several U.S. Supreme Court justices known for their devotion to states’ rights inexplic ...
Confusion is what we see in the whole world today. Ask the question: why did the people in Egypt want to get rid of their king in 2011? Were they even Egyptians uprising? Who were the organizers and who is leading them today? What started the big rage in Libya? The answer, they say, is that they wanted democracy. Did the Libyans say that or did it come from other sources? Did all Libyans want to kill their king or just a few of them? Why did they hate their king? Why did they brutalize his body, even after his death, if democracy is all they were seeking? If democracy was all they were seeking, what then are they seeking in New York, California, Texas, Illinois, and other states throughout the United States, that already have democracy; as well as other countries. Occupy Wall Street Occupy Wall Street (OWS) is an ongoing series of demonstrations in New York City based in Zuccotti Park in the Wall Street financial district. The protests were initiated by the Canadian activist group Adbusters. They are main ...
Saudi Prince Turki Expresses 'Disappointment' With US Over Syria: Prince Turki Al-Faisal Al-Saud, chairman of the King Faisal Center for Research and Islamic Studies and former director-general of the Kingdom’s General Intelligence Directorate, said on Tuesday, Oct. 22, ‘There is definitely, from a public opinion point of view in the Kingdom, a high level of disappointment in the US government’s dealings, not just with Palestine, but equally with Syria.” Speaking with Al-Monitor after delivering the luncheon keynote address at the annual Arab-US Policymakers Conference of the National Council on US-Arab Relations, Prince Turki said the Syrian opposition “should not be treated the way that the US has treated them.” Prince Turki, a former ambassador to the United States and co-founder of the King Faisal Foundation, made the case for military support for the moderate Syrian opposition forces to “level the playing field” before “meaningful negotiations” can begin. “So whether it is Assad ...
US not a Super Power: Former World Bank lawyer Karen Hudes says the global opinion of America is tarnished. Hudes contends, “Is the United States a credible super power? The answer to that is ‘we are neither.’ We’re not a super power and we are not credible.” Hudes goes on to warn, “The biggest game changer is something that people are just ignoring, and they ignore it at their peril, and that is the creation of a fourth credit rating agency. We know there is fraud and corruption from top to bottom in the financial system - global Central Banks - the Feds - Politicians - Wall Street, and the list goes on, some would admit we have a Ponzi Scheme upon us. But the ones who will be left holding an empty bag will be the Average Americans - stripped from there retirement with super inflation and devalued dollar and the majority of elders having to go back into the workforce. Are you protecting your future? Are you secure in your goals and retirement objectives, are you worried about outliving ...
2Pac's mother talks about the Occupy Movement. The Occupy Wall Street & Together Movement is a reflection of the increasing anger and implosion of the working class in a “profit by any means necessary” driven capitalist system. Capitalism on its own merit is not the problem. The way it’s approached in America is. There is a dichotomy at play though. Consumers want products at low prices, and producers manufacture goods in other Countries with lower wages to achieve the desired consumer prices. Somehow, it is easy for some to ignore inequity in pay and unsafe working conditions if it takes place outside of the United States. The consequence of outsourcing jobs outside of the U.S. to increase profit is that jobs shrink in America, especially in the manufacturing sector. In a recession, more jobs in multiple sectors dry up, affecting almost everyone except for those in the sectors that create new technology or for corporate executives. They actually get richer. The result is that more workers feel th . ...
The Architect of Destruction by Maureen Scott I received this in an email from a dear friend. I found it so well written, and accurately describing what Obama has done. Please, pass it on, and God bless ~ In 1789, the Continental Congress convened in NYC to inaugurate the first President of the United States, General George Washington. This was done at Federal Hall on the now famous and infamous Wall Street at Ground Zero. These were dedicated men who fought to have a free country and not a dictatorship or a police state. Maureen Scott is an ardent American patriot who was born in Pittsburgh, PA, and retired to Richmond, VA, in 2000. Free from the nine-to-five grind of writing for employers and clients, she began writing political commentary to please herself and express her convictions, as do I. Our Pledge of Allegiance, a military band playing the National Anthem, and the wisdom of our Founding Fathers, inspire her passion and views. Her life is guided by a firm belief that truth is the most importan .. ...
If the people need proof as to who is controlling Washington, when the bailout came after Lehman Brothers collapsed. 80% of the population was against the bailout. Congress passed the bailout anyway showing its really under the control of Banking interests. James Turk, GoldMoney Foundation There is an advanced oligarchy in the sense that is its main mechanism of control, is to convince people you really need the 6 biggest banks in the United States, in the particular form they are in today with very light regulation. And if you don’t have them or try and change that all kinds of awful things will happen. And, it sounds like blackmail but it’s just the way the world is, and there is nothing you can do about it, so just cooperate. Professor. Simon Johnson, Former IMF Chief Economist The Fed is a lobbyist for commercial banking system. When you say you want to turn regulation over to the Fed you’re saying the financial sector and Wall Street should be self regulated and Wall Street has veto power over ...
Apple users becoming more limited, more expensive; Android compatibility, products and "price" and now maybe "carrier rates?" Pick a team.? TECH TRENDGoogle’s Plan to Bypass Carriers: The Wall Street Journal reports that Google plans to completely change its tune when it comes to releasing new versions of Android. Usually, a major update to its operating system would coincide with the release of a new device set for one of the major wireless carriers. Then other networks and device makers would eventually follow along. For instance, its last Android OS update – Ice Cream Sandwich – was launched in December on Samsung’s (SEO: 005930) Galaxy Nexus through Verizon (NYSE: VZ). Whereas Samsung’s most popular device, the Galaxy S II, is just now receiving the software update (but not yet in the United States). Google’s new plan, however, would allow multiple hardware makers to get early access to the next software version, so they can build a new device accordingly. This would be great for consumers ...
Seven Signs America Has Regressed Back to the 19th Century are seven signs the United States of America has returned to the 19th century. 1. Wall Street can “send your man around to see my man” again. Shocked by newly elected President Teddy Roosevelt’s moves against Wall Street, J. P. Morgan went to the White House. “If we have done anything wrong,” said Morgan, “send your man to my man and they can fix it up.” “That can’t be done,” said Roosevelt. “We don’t want to fix it up,” his Attorney General added, “we want to stop it.” The year was 1902, and 19th-century privilege was over for Wall Street. Now it’s back, and so are the “men”—and as the recent foot-dragging over female Fed chair candidate Janet Yellen highlights, they almost always are men. The chief architects of deregulation in the 1990s included Sen. Phil Gramm, President Bill Clinton and Treasury Secretaries Robert Rubin and Larry Summers. That deregulation cost millions of Americans their jobs and millio ...

As the United States comes ever closer to defaulting on its debts, corporate and Wall Street executives who for years have been bankrolling the Republican Party are beginning to get nervous. Their Republican Party has become a Frankenstein monster. These corporate patrons of the GOP don't mind a temporary shutdown, because their low taxes and special loopholes aren't affected, and many regulations aren't being enforced. But a default would cause bond prices to plummet, interest rates to surge, stocks to sink through the floorboards of the New York Stock Exchange, and the global entire financial system to suffer a major blow. But what can the titans of Corporate America do now that the monster they've created is on a rampage? Plenty. They can cancel all GOP funders, stop writing checks to Republican senators and representatives and instruct their corporate PACs do do the same, tell their Washington lobbyists to cease all activities on behalf of the GOP, and urge all their suppliers, contractors, and corpor ...
By, Paul Joseph Watson Ben Rhodes, the White House National Security advisor behind the claim that President Bashar Al-Assad used chemical weapons in Syria, is a fiction writer with zero educational background in government, diplomacy or National Security who also played a key role in covering up the truth behind the attack on the US consulate in Benghazi. Yesterday, Rhodes announced that the White House had “high confidence” that the Syrian Army had used chemical weapons, providing no evidence, and that the Obama administration would now take steps to arm FSA rebels, who as has been widely documented are being led by Al-Qaeda terrorists who killed U.S. troops in Iraq. The Wall Street Journal also reports that a no fly zone is being prepared that would embroil the United States in yet another war. 35-year-old Rhodes has been a speechwriter for Obama since 2007 and now enjoys the role of deputy National Security adviser for strategic communication. He created the infamous term “kinetic military acti ...
Today there are fools cheering the closing of vital public services, the delay of paychecks for good public servants, slowdowns of Social Security checks, and the degradation of the good faith and credit in the United States Government. Such people are not patriots, they are revolutionaries and fanatics. You can be sure they've got theirs, Jack. The saddest part: what they demand is already impossible, as the exchanges open the same day the government closes down, so their game's already lost. This is just bitter, angry, childish hatred, to punish the disabled, seniors, government employees and contractors, and military families. There's a special kind of *** on earth for suckers too stupid to distinguish their own self-interest from those of their abusers - poor, scared under-educated white folks whipped into a frenzy by cynical pols for the benefit of their Wall Street benefactors, confused by lies are proof of the Stockholm Syndrome, behaving pretty much like spouses in an abusive relationship, shilli ...
Glenn Greenwald - the Right wing libertarian nut who pretends to be a Lefty - is at it again. This time, the poor thing has confused Wall Street and the CIA and is very mad that the President told the truth in his 60 Minutes interview about the the reason why not a slew of prosecutions took place on Wall Street. Because previous Congresses (and presidents, plural, I'm sad to say) legalized bribery, gambling, and insider trading. Ever the disingenuous troll, Greenwald at first did not even include the President's explanation. He cut the quote off here: Obama replied: I can’t, as President of the United States, comment on the decisions about particular prosecutions. That’s the job of the Justice Department, and we keep those separate so that there’s no political influence on decisions made by professional prosecutors. See, what he held back from his readers, at least at first, in true Fox-lover fashion, is what the president said in his interview immediately following that line. Luckily, this being th ...

Secrets and Lies of the Bailout The federal rescue of Wall Street didn’t fix the economy – it created a permanent bailout state based on a Ponzi-like confidence scheme. And the worst may be yet to come by Matt Taibbi JANUARY 04, 2013 It has been four long winters since the federal government, in the hulking, shaven-skulled, Alien Nation-esque form of then-Treasury Secretary Hank Paulson, committed $700 billion in taxpayer money to rescue Wall Street from its own chicanery and greed. To listen to the bankers and their allies in Washington tell it, you'd think the bailout was the best thing to hit the American economy since the invention of the assembly line. Not only did it prevent another Great Depression, we've been told, but the money has all been paid back, and the government even made a profit. No harm, no foul – right? Wrong. It was all a lie – one of the biggest and most elaborate falsehoods ever sold to the American people. We were told that the taxpayer was stepping in – only temporaril ...
Then the angel of the LORD ordered Gad to tell David to go up and build an altar to the LORD on the threshing floor of Araunah the Jebusite. So David went up in obedience to the word that Gad had spoken in the name of the LORD" (1 Chron 21:18-19). In 1857, an American businessman named Jeremiah Lanphier was sent out by his local church to begin a noon-day prayer meeting on Fulton Street, right around the corner from Wall Street in New York City. A simple prayer, a willing heart, and an act of obedience resulted in city transformation throughout the United States. However, at that very first meeting, no one showed up in the first 35 minutes. But Jeremiah waited. Gradually, six people wandered into the room at 35 minutes past the hour. Six months later, 10,000 people were meeting for prayer throughout New York City. This led to one of the greatest spiritual renewals in the United State's history. What would have happened if Lanphier had decided to abandon the idea after 30 minutes? In a small, darkened room ...
Leonardo DiCaprio Will Star as Woodrow Wilson in New Biopic Leonardo DiCaprio has done his fair share of famous people flicks, but now he's giving a go at one of our most influential presidents. This "Wolf of Wall Street" is attached to produce and star in an adaptation of A. Scott Berg's biography "Wilson," about the 28th President of the United States. Berg's book is hot off the presses, but Warner Bros. is already negotiating for the rights, with DiCaprio's Appian Way production company also on board. Woodrow Wilson is notable for his awesome top hat, as well as passing legislation like the Federal Reserve Act. The progressive prez also led the US into World War I, helped established the League of Nations, and worked on the Treaty of Versailles. He is the last president to have remarried while in office; his first wife Ellen died in 1914, and he married Edith Galt soon after. He was also quite controversial, especially with regards to race relations. He is also quoted as praising D. W. Griffith's film ...
Fascism In Cairo Cheered By The Americans Who Always Cheer Fascism-- Fascists love those military strongmen There's always been a big audience-- and cheering section-- for fascism in the United States, which explains the popularity of the Wall Street Journal, not to mention Fox News and Hate Talk Radio. The other day we looked at the 1933 fascist coup attempt against Franklin Roosevelt led by Republican industrialists and financiers Irénée du Pont, J.P. Morgan, Prescott Bush, Grayson Murphy, and other prominent Wall Street figures, as well as the pro-Nazi families behind Remington, Heinz, Birds Eye, Goodyear, and Maxwell House. Roosevelt could have-- should have-- hung all the plotter for high treason, but he preferred to allow the plot to be covered up in return for their quiescence as he worked to implement the New Deal. - See more at:
Gun permits in US soars.Law-enforcement authorities in the U.S. are increasingly worried that a growing number of people in the United States are getting permission to carry weapons. According to the Government Accountability Office, approximately eight million Americans had a permit to carry a gun in 2012. In many states, gun permit applications have skyrocketed in part because people seeking to buy firearms are worried that that new gun control measures will restrict access to weapons. According to the Wall Street Journal, 537,000 permits were issued last year by a dozen states, showing an 18 percent increase, compared to a year before. States across the U.S. have loosened restrictions amid a spate of mass shootings, a development that some law enforcement officials say is unwelcome. More people carrying guns "makes our job more difficult," said Thomas Dart, sheriff of Illinois's Cook County, which encompasses Chicago. Since the start of the Fourth of July weekend on Wednesday, at least 55 people have b ...
Why does this left wing Obama supporter find it so difficult to link the struggle for jobs with the struggle for peace since anyone with an ounce of common sense understands that without a peace dividend derived from ending militarism and these dirty wars from which the Wall Street merchants of death and destruction profit so handsomely as militarism and wars kill jobs just like they kill people that there will be no jobs without peace? Also, note that this Obama supporter fails to mention that if the United States Government was financing the creation of two very much needed universal social programs--- a National Public Health Care System and a National Public Child Care System providing the American people with free Health Care and free child care--- over 18-million jobs would be created for a fraction of what these wars are costing us while robbing us of the universal social programs the United Nation's Universal Declaration of Human Rights declares we are entitled to by birth. This writer tries to pu ...
George Walker Bush was born on July 6, 1946, in New Haven, Connecticut. He is the eldest of six children of George Herbert Walker Bush and Barbara Pierce Bush. The Bush family had been involved in business and politics since the 1950s. Bush's grandfather, Prescott Bush, was a former Wall Street banker and progressive Republican senator from Connecticut, and his father was a businessman, diplomat, and Vice President and president of the United States. In 1948, George H.W. Bush moved the family to Midland, Texas, where he made his fortune in the oil business. Young George spent most of his childhood in Midland, attending school there until the seventh grade. The family moved to Houston in 1961, and George W. Bush was sent to Phillips Academy in Andover, Massachusetts. There he was an all-around athlete, playing baseball, basketball and football. He was a fair student and had a reputation for being an occasional troublemaker. Despite this, family connections helped him enter Yale University in 1964. George W ...
TPP: Global Nightmare for Democracy, Workers Rights and the 99%? By Ray Rogers, International Labor Rights Advisor, Green Shadow Cabinet June 21, 2013 | Read Original Knowledgeable sources are outraged over the lack of transparency around the Trans-Pacific Partnership (TPP) negotiations. The world's 99% have a lot to be concerned about, they say. The TPP is described as a free trade agreement in the making that presently involves 11 nations: Australia, Brunei, Canada, Chile, Malaysia, Mexico, New Zealand, Peru, Singapore, United States and Vietnam. If Japan joins the talks on the TPP, "it would boost the proposed agreement to one covering nearly 40% of the world economic output" according to the Wall Street Journal (6/2/13). The very fabric of society has been torn apart by the greed, corruption, scorched earth policies and lack of accountability of transnational corporations. Workers Rights, safety and health protections and the existence of labor unions are being eroded due to the unbridled power that t ...
Biden’s gaffes through the years include many memorable turns of phrase. Aug. 22, 2012: “Folks, I can tell you I’ve known eight presidents, three of them intimately.” Aug. 14, 2012 (to a largely African-American audience): “Look at what they [Republicans] value, and look at their budget. And look what they’re proposing. [Romney] said in the first 100 days, he’s going to let the big banks write their own rules – unchain Wall Street. They’re going to put y’all back in chains.” May 16, 2012: “My mother believed and my father believed that if I wanted to be president of the United States, I could be Vice President!” April 26, 2012: “I promise you, the president has a big stick. I promise you.” March 23, 2010 (to President Obama, during the Health Care signing ceremony): “This is a big f—ing deal!” March 17, 2010: “His mom lived in Long Island for 10 years or so. God rest her soul. And – although, she’s – wait – your mom’s still – your mom’s still alive. Your ...
With the United States now providing direct Military support to the Rebel Forces in Syria fighting the Assad Regime --- President Obama has declared that a another State of War exits. Just so happens this one is in the "neighborhood" that we have been tirelessly negotiating Peace for decades. Hello? Israel. What have we done? For one we just sealed the fate of King Hussein in Jordan. Sorry Buddy, you are stuck with refugees by the tens of thousands and now you are going to train and equip the very factions that someday will be coming for your Nation State looking for some Democracy. Isn't American Freedom grand? We identify our future Enemy by teaching them Insurgency skills and urban Warfare tactics. WooHoo! All we need now is a couple of dozen Cruise Missiles and Wall Street is happy. The biggest beneficiary from all this World War is China. They can continue strong-arm economic tactics in the Asian Region while manufacturing Drones by the thousands a few more Aircraft Carriers and Attack Subs. Meanwhil ...
COMPLIMENTS OF POEMHUNTER.COM Biography of Allen Ginsberg Irwin Allen Ginsber was an American poet and one of the leading figures of the Beat Generation in the 1950s. He vigorously opposed militarism, materialism and sexual repression. Ginsberg is best known for his epic poem "Howl", in which he celebrated his fellow "angel-headed hipsters" and harshly denounced what he saw as the destructive forces of capitalism and conformity in the United States. This poem is one of the classic poems of the Beat Generation. The poem, which was dedicated to writer Carl Solomon, opens: I saw the best minds of my generation destroyed by madness, starving hysterical naked, dragging themselves through the *** streets at dawn looking for an angry fix... In October 1955, Ginsberg and five other unknown poets gave a free reading at an experimental art gallery in San Francisco. Ginsberg's "Howl" electrified the audience. According to fellow poet Michael McClure, it was clear "that a barrier had been broken, that a human voice . ...
Thought for the day : OBAMA'S LEGACY Global Stock Markets plunged Wednesday following the release of negative economic indicators pointing to a deepening slump in the United States, Europe and Asia and statements by US Federal Reserve officials suggesting a pull-back in monetary stimulus. The Dow Jones Industrial Average lost 215 points, or 1.42 percent, closing below 15,000 for the first time in a month. The index has posted losses in four out of the past six trading days. The extreme volatility in financial markets reflects the artificial and unsustainable character of the rise in asset prices, which is entirely dependent on the continued pumping of trillions of dollars of virtually free credit into the banking system by the Federal Reserve and other major Central Banks. Meanwhile, the real economy continues to stagnate or contract under the impact of austerity measures aimed at impoverishing the working class. Wednesday’s sell-off came amid warnings by Wall Street insiders that the combination of v . ...
Did you know that Barack Obama has been secretly negotiating the most important trade agreement since the formation of the World Trade Organization? Did you know that this agreement will impose very strict Internet copyright rules, ban all "Buy American" laws, give Wall Street banks much more freedom to trade risky derivatives and force even more domestic manufacturing offshore? If you have not heard about this treaty, don't feel bad. Obama has refused to even give Congress a copy of the draft agreement and he has banned members of Congress from attending the negotiations. The plan is to keep this treaty secret until the very last minute and then to railroad it through Congress and have it signed into law by October. The treaty is known as "the Trans-Pacific Partnership", and the nations that are reported to be involved in the development of this treaty include the United States, Canada, Japan, South Korea, Australia, New Zealand, Chile, Peru, Brunei, Singapore, Vietnam and Malaysia. Opponents of th ...
News you haven't heard. The communist government of China owns $1.3 trillion of the United States total debt. In a precedence setting move, the U.S. Treasury Department is now allowing China to directly purchase Treasury Bills from our Treasury's actions and bypass Wall Street. This deal wasn't announced publicly and primary dealers were not notified. It's not actually illegal, but it sure is suspicious. Who will keep track and audit just how much America is really borrowing from communists. We have some real spenders on Capital Hill and you are right to be alarmed because we could loose our sovereignty to China.
Usury and the September 2008 collapse or Banks blame the victim In 1978, the First National Bank of Omaha asked the question: Could they export the 18% the bank lent Nebraskans to Minnesotans where Minnesota limited usury to 12%? The US Supreme Court said it could and Wall Street noticed, exporting deregulation across the United States. One state after another introduced laws like Delaware’s Financial Center Development Act of 1981, written by Citibank, in a race to the bottom. Soon mortgages, credit cards, and student loans were at risk. Thomas Geoghegan, a respected liberal lawyer explains, “Some people still think our financial collapse was the result of a technical glitch --- a failure, say, to regulate derivatives or hedge funds. No, the deregulation that let to our Times of Troubles was of a deeper, darker kind. The problem was not that we ‘deregulated the New Deal’ but that we deregulated a much older, even ancient, set of laws, the laws against usury. These laws have existed in every civil ...
Paul Hellyer, the former Minister of Defense for Canada was asked just who the shadow government was and he replied… “members of the Three Sisters, the Council on Foreign Relations, the Bilderbergers and the Trilateral Commission, the International banking cartel, the oil cartel, members of various intelligence organizations and select members of the military Junta who together become a shadow government of not only the United States but of much of the western world. When Mr. Hellyer was asked by Senator Gravel for his idea of a solution he had this to say, “well Wall Street runs your economy and you have a president who presumably is the commander in chief of the military but he’s not cleared to know what his military are actually doing, so I think there some big problems. I think Congress ultimately has the key to both the future of the United States and world and this is what bothers me, that they’re not exercising their power to change the things that need to be changed” Mr. Hellyer then r ...
Did Wall Street Write Obamacare Also? Now that we know that Wall Street wrote the Dodd-Frank bill as an act of treason against the United States, there is mounting evidence that they wrote Obamacare as well, in furtherance of the Queen's desire to vastly reduce the population of the upstart colony. The Washington Post on Sunday, May 26, reported on a series of meetings between the architects of Obamacare and the Wall Street hedge funds and investment bankers. These meetings came to light as the SEC and the DOJ are looking into a spike in the trading of stock in the HMOs such as Humana, immediately after some of these meetings took place. Rep. Louise Slaughter and Sen. Charles Grassley are investigating these meetings and the "political intelligence firms" which set them up. The Post article only examines the use of these meetings for potentially illegal insider information, which, although true enough, is avoiding the more deadly issue of the role Wall Street played, and is still playing, in writing the O ...

Article on Pre-Olympic activity and frankly - things going on that are visible to everyone Expats lured by Brazil’s booming economy By Juan Forero,February 05, 2012 • David Bailey, 28, from Britain, has started a business in Brazil and, as… (Juan Forero/The Washington…) SAO PAULO, Brazil — It just made sense to be in South America’s economic heart, Jonathan Rosenthal reasoned, no matter that he had been working on Wall Street with some of the investment world’s most heady firms. The fact was, the United States was in a sustained slump and Europe was tanking, but there were promising opportunities in Brazil. So like a growing number of young, highly educated professionals, Rosenthal made the leap to Brazil’s Wall Street, Faria Lima Avenue, to start a hedge fund that has ridden the country’s economic boom. With an economy that recently surpassed Britain’s to become the world’s sixth largest, Brazil is offering a sunny and often lucrative alternative to the downcast prospects in the Uni ...

Reality Check Voters want form over substance. This is what politicians have given them, beginning no later in the United States than the Lincoln Administration. The political game is to disguise an extension of the revolution in the garb of old forms. In his retroactively legendary 1932 speech in Pittsburgh, Franklin Roosevelt called Herbert Hoover a spendthrift. He accused him of having run massive federal deficits, which was true. What the public did not know, and still does not know, is that he and Hoover were associates. They worked for the same group of insider investors. Roosevelt sold corporate bonds to these people until 1928. He and Hoover were far from being rivals. They were rivals within the form in 1932. They were part of the same insider group that was associated with Wall Street. This was explored in detail a generation ago by Anthony Sutton, who wrote Wall Street and FDR (1976). But the book never caught on in academia, as he knew it would not. This information has never trickled down to ...

Today in History: On March 12, 1664, New Jersey, named after a small island off the Normandy coast, became an English colony. In 1864, during the U.S. Civil War, the Union army began its ill-fated Red River campaign. In 1933, U.S. President Franklin D. Roosevelt held his first "fireside chat." In 1947, The Truman Doctrine was established to prevent the spread of communism. In 1964, New Hampshire became the first state to legally sell lottery tickets in the United States. In 1986, "Les Miserables" moved from London to a theater on New York City's Broadway, where it ran for the next seventeen years. In 1993, North Korea announced its withdrawal from the Nuclear Non-Proliferation Treaty. And, in 2009, Bernie Madoff pleaded guilty to his Wall Street scam, and Syracuse beat Connecticut in a Big East game that went into a record six overtimes.
Music Managers Forum manager, music publisher, speaker and consultant Barry Bergman is the founder and president of the Music Managers Forum in the United States. An outspoken advocate on artist rights, he has testified on Capitol Hill serving the interests of artists. The Sixties As a young man, Barry Bergman was hanging out at Greenwich Village coffeehouses, listening to music while attending New York University where he acquired a Bachelor of Science degree in Marketing and Management. After graduation, unsuccessful attempts to be employed within the music business on a full-time basis sent Barry further downtown where he became a stockbroker with Steiner, Rouse & Company. While employed on Wall Street, Barry created Free Enterprise Music Company, a record production and publishing company, signing recording artists and songwriters. The Seventies Several minor successes and networking landed Barry his first full-time job in the music business for the well-established publishing company, The Edward B. M ...
NEWS: Google to cut 1,200 jobs at Motorola Mobility: WSJ Google Inc's Motorola Mobility unit will slash 1,200 jobs or 10 percent of its workforce as the smartphone maker tries to return to profitability, the Wall Street Journal reported on Friday, citing a company email. The layoffs come on top of 4,000 jobs Google eliminated at Motorola Mobility in August as the Internet search giant seeks to make more smartphones and fewer simple handsets. The email about the job cuts, which will affect workers in the United States, China and India, said "our costs are too high, we're operating in markets where we're not competitive and we're losing money," according to the Journal. Google bought the money-losing cellphone maker for $12.5 billion last year - its largest acquisition ever - aiming to use Motorola Mobility's patents to fend off legal attacks on its Android mobile platform and expand beyond its software business. The acquisition raised concerns on Wall Street that Google was entering a business with much lo ...
Income Inequality Spencer Platt/Getty Images Updated: Oct. 16, 2012 Income inequality has soared to the highest levels since the Great Depression and the recession has done little to reverse the trend, with the top 1 percent of earners taking 93 percent of the income gains in the first full year of the recovery, The New York Times reported in October 2012. The yawning gap between the haves and the have-nots — and the political questions that gap has raised about the plight of the Middle Class — has given rise to anti-Wall Street sentiment and animated the presidential campaign. Now, a growing body of economic research suggests that it might mean lower levels of economic growth and slower job creation in the years ahead, as well. “Growth becomes more fragile” in countries with high levels of inequality like the United States, said Jonathan D. Ostry of the International Monetary Fund, whose research suggests that the widening disparity since the 1980s might shorten the nation’s economic expansions ...
Occupy Movement SUES Wall StREET! Here's something you probably won't hear about on mainstream media: the Occupy Movement has just sued every federal regulator on Wall Street. This is the first lawsuit challenging regulators to implement, rather than delay, the 'Volcker Rule' - a specific section of the 'Dodd–Frank Wall Street Reform and Consumer Protection Act' originally proposed by American economist and former United States Federal Reserve Chairman Paul Volcker to restrict United States banks from making certain kinds of speculative investments that do not benefit their customers. Volcker argued that such speculative activity played a key role in the financial crisis of 2007–2010. [Thanks to Wikipedia for the succinct details above about the 'Volker Rule'...] Please share widely, because the mainstream media is probably going to do everything in its power to make sure you never hear of this and/or never take it seriously - just as it did with the Occupy Wall Street protests.
Wake Up Minions Dept.: Between drone strikes (including threats of drone strikes on US citizens), the handling of the sequester, the continued failure to bring Wall Street to heel and make America something other than a kleptocracy for a privileged few, and everything else that's wrong with this *** fool uncivilised backwater, I'm reminded of a quote from Tyrion Lannister, which applies to everyone---of both parties---in the government: "We've had vicious kings, and we've had *** kings, but up until now we've never had a vicious *** king." Joffrey Baratheon could run the United States better than Obama and the US Congress have.
George Bush: The Unauthorized Biography --- by Webster G. Tarpley & Anton Chaitkin Chapter -VIII- The Permian Basin Gang, 1948-59 Pecunia non olet. -- Vespasian During the years following the Second World War, the patrician families of the Eastern Anglophile Liberal Establishment sent numbers of their offspring to colonize those geographic regions of the United States which, the families estimated, were likely to prosper in the postwar period. On the surface, this appears as a simple reflex of greed: cadet sons were despatched to those areas of the provinces where their instinctive methods of speculation and usury could be employed to parasitize emerging wealth. More fundamentally, this migration of young patrician bankers answered the necessity of political control. The Eastern Establishment, understood as an agglomeration of financier factions headquartered in Wall Street, had been the dominant force in American politics since J.P. Morgan had bailed out the Grover Cleveland regime in the 1890's. Since t ...
The free enterprise system and free markets is a new theory that Wall Street sold the masses. No U.S. President before Herbert Hoover believed in the Free Enterprise system. Washington was a protectionist, Adams was a protectionist, Jefferson was a protectionist.Lincoln was such an extreme protectionist that he promoted the Civil War over slavery flooding the labor market. They believed in protectionism and economic nationalism. Hoover caused the Great Depression because he refused to protect the economy. Instead of rejecting the failed the free enterprise system and free market theory...every single U.S. President has advocated it since Hoover because Wall Street controls the elections.
"Can you identify the last time when you took the Wall Street banks to trial?...There are district attorneys and United States attorneys out there every day squeezing ordinary citizens on sometimes very thin grounds and taking them to trial in order to make an example, as they put it. I'm really concerned that 'too big to fail' has become 'too big for trial'" - Freshman Senator Elizabeth Warren (D-MA), questioning Regulators at her first Banking, Housing and Urban Affairs Committee hearing. “It is at a minimum relevant to know if that $200,000 that he deposited in his bank account came directly from Saudi Arabia, came directly from North Korea.” - Freshman Tea Party/GOP “Chicken Hawk” Senator Ted Cruz, (R-TX) disparaging the reputation of twice-wounded combat veteran and distinguished former Republican Senator Chuck Hagel during his confirmation hearing for Secretary of Defense And if you throw in Rep. Steve Stockman's (R-TX) Ted Nugent invitation to the State of the Union address fiasco, you sudd ...

5 U.S. Cities That Were Destroyed—and Completely Rebuilt As recovery efforts begin in areas ravaged by Hurricane Sandy, rebuilding may seem like an impossible task right now. But rebuilding will happen. We’ve talked about historic disasters like the Great Chicago Fire and the 1906 earthquake that devastated San Francisco. Let’s look at five other U.S. cities that bounced back after natural disasters. 1. Galveston, Texas Galveston was briefly the capital city of the Republic of Texas and later one of the largest ports in the United States. But on September 8, 1900, a category 4 hurricane struck the booming “Wall Street of Texas,” killing thousands of residents, largely as a result of poor meteorological reporting and townspeople who dismissed evacuation warnings. The storm’s 15-foot surge washed out the entire island (which was only about 8 feet above sea level), destroying nearly 4000 homes, all bridges to the mainland, telegraph lines, most ships in the wharf and even rail lines as far as 6 m ...

Las Vegas “Godfather” puts out a hit on Chuck Hagel "Obviously the Defense Department cannot target domestic organized crime. The real reason Adelson put out the Hagel hit will never be reported in the New York Times, Israel’s flagship “American” publication. The truth is that Sheldon Adelson, like Meyer Lansky, heads a foreign crime syndicate whose headquarters is the “criminal state” of Israel. The Zionist mob views Hagel as a threat to their operations. Just as Bobby Kennedy was a threat to J. Edgar “there is no organized crime in America” Hoover, any US Senator who proclaims: “I’m not an Israeli senator. I’m a United States Senator” threatens the taboo on admitting that Israel owns and operates Congress, the media, and much of Wall Street – and does so on behalf of a foreign-based mob that is said to control as much as one-third of global organized crime."

In part two of our interview with Matt Taibbi, he describes recent Wall Street scandals — including a decade-long Wall Street scandal that drained money from every county and state in the United States — and notes not a single bank executive has faced individual consequences. He also explains how Republican presidential nominee Mitt Romney’s former firm, Bain Capital, and others have used private equity to raise money to conduct corporate raids. "It’s just a scheme to take a cash-rich company and move all that cash to a few actors — typically it’s the executives of the target company and the executives in the private equity firm — and then you force everybody else to pay," Taibbi says. "The workers pay by either losing their jobs or taking reductions in salary, and the guys at the top win." Click here to watch part one of this interview.

As I write this blog I am overjoyed and even more optimistic than I was four years ago. Of course I was not awake during Obama’s second inauguration. The life of a DJ/performer is not that of a morning person. But I was smart enough to DVR it.   In my life time, I have witnessed many moments in history. Watergate, Grace Jones making her debut on the Merv Griffin Show, the assassination attempt on Ronald Reagan, the day that Martin Luther King Day went into law, the Challenger disaster, Michael Jackson being rushed to the hospital after catching fire during a Pepsi Commercial, the fall of the Berlin Wall, the first attempt to blow up the World Trade Center, O.J. Simpson  acquitted, Princess Diana’s death, the Monica Lewinsky Scandal, Columbine, 9-11, George W. Bush announced as the winner in 2004, Hurricane Katrina, the Wall Street collapse, Barack Obama announced as the 44th President of the United States and too many others to name. The world would never be the same. But after watching the inaugura ...
The Daily Teaspoon. Five Full Teaspoons Politics. Tonight I'm fizzed off. I'm fizzed that we have a president who had abdicated his office to the NRA and Wall Street. I'm fizzed off that more Americans will be killed by mass murder then would have if we had a President with a backbone. I long for the days of Jefferson who bought half of a content without asking Congress, I miss the courage of Andrew Jackson who told the Chief Justice (John Marshall) of the United States that he made his decision now enforce it on Indian re-location, Abraham Lincoln who told the rebellious South that the days of slavery were over, or President Teddy Roosevelt who sent the Great White Fleet half way around the world and told Congress who wouldn't fund the idea, "...now you bring them home." What are the lives of 20 6-7 years olds and seven educators worth, considerably less. President Obama got a tax deal, what the American people get are more mass homicides. President Obama is just another flunky who kisses the *** s of t ...
WORLD NEWS USA SICK ECONOMY OVERVIEW - OBAMA SAYS 'GO FLU YOURSELF' January 15, 2013 • 10:32AM The current suffering, death toll, and scrambling for treatment from this season's flu season in the United States manifests the takedown of the U.S. public health system, which is at the core of Obamacare, whose provenance, in turn, is the killer Health Care policy promoted by Tony Blair for the City of London/Wall Street crowd. The United States is now at or near the official definition of a flu epidemic, because for the last reporting period, the percent of deaths attributable to flu, exceeded 7.1%. The peak of the outbreak will occur either sooner or later, depending on various epidemiological factors. Extensive flu--of varying strains--is now present in all but two of the contiguous 48 states, as of today. Public health emergencies are being declared by state and local officials. Last week, the City of Boston, and the state of New York were so declared. In New York, 19,128 cases of the flu were reporte .. ...
Obama 2012 Second Term Inauguration To Cost Taxpayers $100 Million DECEMBER 9, 2012 11:00 PM0 COMMENTSVIEWS: 189 In light of the bad economic times we are facing as a nation, coupled with the looming fiscal cliff and the enormous $16 trillion national debt, plus when you add how President Obama spent the last 4 years campaigning around the country bashing the wealthy, fat cat bankers, Wall Street executives and anyone making over $250,000 a year, it is rather stunning to know that he will allow $100 million of taxpayer's money to be spent on his second inauguration. I don't know about you, but we here at IsThatBaloney.com see almost nothing but utter hypocrisy from this president. Is there nothing Barack Obama won't spend money on? From his 4 years of campaigning for his second term in office, to his lavish family vacations at taxpayer's expense, to Michelle's equally lavish taxpayer funded vacations, to his foreign aid even to enemies of the United States (the Muslim Brotherhood backed Mohammed Morsi in ...
In 1934 General Smedley D. Butler went public after he was approached by Wall Street and offered up to 300 million dollars to lead an army of 500,00 veterans equipped with munitions from Remington Arms Company to Washington D.C., in order to overthrow the U.S. Government by force. The plot was investigated by the McCormack-Dickstein committee, which found General Butler to be telling the truth.(*) During his 35 years of service in the Marine Corps, General Butler received the Congressional Medal of Honor twice. The Medal of Honor is the highest award for valor against an enemy force, which can be given to an individual serving in the Armed Forces of the United States. Jules Archer's book, The Plot to Seize the White House, was written with the cooperation of senators, reporters, former Speaker of the House of Representatives John W. McCormack, former editors of the Philadelphia Inquirer, and the Philadelphia Record, and the immediate family of General Smedley Butler who provided military records, scrapboo ...
Considering Fast Methods In The Mendacity of Hope: Barack Obama and the Betrayal of American Liberalism Americans find themselves in genuine confusion and dismay concerning the actions of President Obama's administration, especially when it comes to the financial crisis and Health Care. Obama's reform packages, passed with great fanfare, ignore the most significant perils facing the United States. In The Mendacity of Hope, Roger D. Hodge makes the provocative case that substantive reform was never even on the table. Behind the euphoria of Obama's victory was in fact a business-as-usual corporate machine, a bloc of political investors, campaign contributors, and lobbyists expecting big returns on their investments. And what a return they have received: in one bailout after another, for the health insurance industry as well as for Wall Street, Obama made sure that the Democratic Party's most powerful investors made out like bandits. None of Obama's most important campaign promises - ending the Iraq War, abo ...
Think this country has never had a woman run for President? Think again, Motivated Women don't mess around. 120 Years ago: Victoria Claflin Woodhull Blood Martin Born September 23, 1838 Died June 9, 1927 At 15 years old, Victoria married Dr. Canning Woodhull, a Cincinnati doctor and patent medicine salesman, but also an alcoholic and womanizer. Victoria worked as a cigar girl and actress (and most likely did a little prostitution for extra income). She and her sister, Tennie, became the first women to establish a banking and brokerage firm on Wall Street: Woodhull, Claflin & Company. Newspapers hailed them as "The Queens of Finance" and "The Bewitching Brokers." Susan B. Anthony applauded it as "a new phase of the woman's rights question." Victoria's feeling was that: "Woman's ability to earn money is better protection against the tyranny and brutality of men than her ability to vote." On April 2, 1870, Victoria announced in the New York Herald her plans to run for president of the United States -- the f ...
Hurricane Sandy struck New York City on October 29th. It brought fires that scorched 100-plus homes in Breezy Point, Queens, dark nights to lower Manhattan, and sea water that paralyzed our subways. More than 300,000 houses were lost or damaged during the storm, and over 30,000 people were displaced from their homes. New Yorkers take pride in their resilience. Two days after Sandy our subway system had started running, albeit gingerly, and Wall Street was open for business. But we also realized then that we could not have gotten back on our feet alone. No sooner had the hurricane left us, first responders were rushing in to help from all over the United States. They reminded me of the response to September 11th, when I met firefighters and nurses from nearly every state and many foreign countries who had come to help us heal. More than to rebuild our infrastructure, they were there to assure us that in the face of unspeakable evil New Yorkers would not stand alone. Amidst the human tragedy of Hurricane S ...
Several news sources were asked, "what was the most underrated news story of 2012?" The following were their answers: "The great underreported story of 2012 is the accelerated spread of poverty and concentration of wealth in the United States." -- Don Hazen, Executive Editor of Alternet "As the unconventional oil and gas drilling rapidly industrializes rural areas across the nation, the lessons of Bayou Corne will be crucial to draw upon. The full story of America's current oil and gas rush cannot be told without the voices of the people living in areas impacted by the industry." -- Maya Schenwar, Executive Director of Truthout "If you asked me 25 years ago how people would react when we found a way to prevent HIV infection, I would have predicted dancing in the streets and widespread news coverage." -- Sheryl Huggins Salomon, Managing Editor of The Root "As long as meaningful action on Climate Change will hurt the short-term profits of the fossil fuel industries, the media conglomerates and Wall Street, ...
"CEO Council Demands Cuts To Poor, Elderly While Reaping Billions In Government Contracts and Tax Breaks. Goldman Sachs chairman and CEO Lloyd Blankfein said Social Security "wasn't devised to be a system that supported you for a 30 year retirement after a 25-year career." The key to cutting Social Security, he said, was simply a matter of teaching people to expect less. Less than three years after receiving $10 billion in bailout money from American taxpayers, Goldman Sachs informed its employees recently that it will fire 1,000 workers in the United States and elsewhere, shifting their jobs to the cheaper Singaporean labor market." HuffPost Blankfein earned a total of $54.4 million in 2006 as one of the highest paid executives on Wall Street. His bonus reflected the performance of Goldman Sachs, which reported record net earnings of $9.5 billion. The compensation included a cash bonus of $27.3 million, with the rest paid in stock and options. While CEO of Goldman Sachs Group in 2007, Blankfein earned a ...
(thanks Washington Oathkeepers) "The drive of the Rockefellers and their allies is to create a one-world government combining supercapitalism and Communism under the same tent, all under their control. Do I mean conspiracy? Yes I do. I am convinced there is such a plot, international in scope, generations old in planning, and incredibly evil in intent." Congressman Larry P. McDonald, 1976, killed in the Korean Airlines 747 that was shot down by the Soviets "In the next century, nations as we know it will be obsolete; all states will recognize a single, global authority. National sovereignty wasn't such a great idea after all." Strobe Talbot, President Clinton's Deputy Secretary of State, as quoted in Time, July 20th, l992.

OBAMA won - YEA! I was sorry to see that Jim Graves didn't win - very very very very sorry. Both amendments passed with NO! It would have been extremely depressing if Obama had lost. It is true that taxes will go up - that cannot be denied, but should Wall Street and the United States auto companies have failed - because of what the SHRUB did previously - I begin to rant - and I will now leave it alone!

The Harbinger' Offers Insight Into America's Future 7:59PM EST 1/4/2012 CHARISMA NEWS STAFF THE HARBINGER Could there exist an ancient mystery that holds the secret of America’s future and that lies behind everything from 9/11 to the crash of Wall Street, the Great Recession, and even the actions and exact words of American leaders? This is what is contained inside The Harbinger, a revelation Pat Robertson of CBN’s The 700 Club has called “extraordinary.” Jonathan Cahn, a Messianic Jewish believer who leads the Jerusalem Center/Beth Israel worship center in Wayne, N.J., has ministered throughout the world and on television and radio, and he is known for opening up the deep mysteries of Scripture with prophetic significance. Written in a riveting narrative style, The Harbinger reveals a pattern in Scripture for God’s judgment on ancient Israel that uncannily parallels what is now taking place in the United States of America. The ancient mystery begins with a passage in Isaiah in which nine harbi ...
Thursday, October 25, 2012BAMBOOZLING OBAMA Since his first day in office, President Barack Obama has been a patsy for the after-effects of a Bush Administration who pillaged the economy of the United States in less than a decade since the Clinton Era surplus. Just weeks before taking office, a fever pitch of patriotism surrounded this man who gave a new voice to the working class. Finally a candidate wanted to see Americans have access to Heath Care without a crippling financial burden. Finally a candidate wasn't afraid to talk about Green Energy. Finally a candidate asked Wall Street why they aren't taking responsibility and helping out. Much of the heightened support for these ideas wore down quickly as families sought relief from being left with the tab for two wars. Meanwhile the rich are running a muck on Wall Street by privatizing profits and socializing losses to the tax payer. The blame game began with buckets of mud and slop being flung from the same far-side of the isle, fertilizing a bed ...
A HOSTILE TAKEOVER OF OUR COUNTRY, By Robert F. Kennedy Jr., EcoWatch - 29 October 12: "American democracy is under assault. In one super-PAC alone, Karl Rove and the Enron grifter Ed Gillespie, have assembled $200 million from big polluters and Wall Street moguls to buy the 2012 election. Two of the Koch Brothers, Charles and David, pledged $130 million to elect candidates who favor unrestrained corporate profiteering. The senators and congressmen they fund and elect are not representing the United States-they are representing Koch and its oil industry cronies, Big Pharma, and the Wall Street banksters currently mounting a hostile takeover of our government. I have no problem characterizing these corporate-centric super-PACs as treasonous. We are now in a free fall toward old-fashioned oligarchy; noxious, thieving and tyrannical. The most corporate-friendly Supreme Court since the Gilded Age had declared in its notorious Citizens United decision that corporations are people and that money is speech. Thos ...
With only four days left to Election Day in the United States and efforts underway to clean up damage done by disastrous super storm Sandy, presidential candidates Barack Obama and Mitt Romney boosted their campaign efforts in battleground states as polls currently show them tied at 49-49. The hurricane, which left at least 54 dead and millions without power along the East Coast, is still the top issue in the U.S. with estimations it will have an effect on the Nov. 6 poll results. Obama’s decision to suspend his election campaign for three days while Romney was driving a full-speed blitz in Florida and in other swing states worked well for the president, according to an ABC poll showing nearly 75 percent of respondents believed Obama handled the storm positively. Another advantage for Obama was his close cooperation with the Republican governor of New Jersey Chris Christie, proving his bipartisanship even in the closing days of a heated campaign. Christie and many other Republicans praised Obama for his ...

Wall Street decided not to trade today due to Hurricane "Sandy" coming down to the United States.

Wall Street Journal Sizes up Obama Please note - not 1 racist comment - Wall Street Journal Sizes up Obama.WOW. A "deadly" article regarding Obama, at the Wall Street Journal, which today is the most widely circulated newspaper in America . Article from the Wall Street Journal - by Alan Caruba: "I have this theory about Barack Obama. I think he's led a kind of make-believe life in which money was provided and doors were opened because at some point early on somebody or some group (George Soros anybody?) took a look at this tall, good looking, half-white, half-black, young man with an exotic African/Muslim name and concluded he could be guided toward a life in politics where his facile speaking skills could even put him in the White House. In a very real way, he has been a young man in a very big hurry. Who else do you know has written two memoirs before the age of 45? "Dreams of My Father" was published in 1995 when he was only 34 years old. The "Audacity of Hope" followed in 2006. If, indeed, he did wri ...
The is Yes I will vote for him again and as I read your post I will say this to you. Do you really think that the reason for the shape of our economic problem is President Obama or can you be honest enough to say that he has done alot with so little help from Congress!! I vote for truth and whats best direction for the Country I love!! I have truly been blessed and I lost so much as well yet Being Black and voting because he's black will never be the case if so I would have supported Jessie Jackson Or Al Sharpton when they tried running I vote true principled truths!! more facts coming! I was doing a lot of thinking. When President Barack Obama took office, our country the United States of America was in high termal. We had a democratic House and Senate. If it was not for the courageous efforts of our President and Congress stepping up to make great changes to Wall Street and bailing out the auto industry. You could only imagine what the state of our Country would be in. From day 1 of the Republican Party ...

A PublicBank for San Diego/State of California. " Today, there is just one public bank in the United States, the Bank of North Dakota, but it has proved so enormously successful that now twenty states and a growing number of municipalities are taking steps to embrace this model of public finance. The very first public bank in the nation was right here, in the Quaker colony of Philadelphia, where the interest paid to the bank on loans took the place of taxes as a source of municipal revenue. But today, right now, this city needs a champion, to stand up for its people against the abuses of a handful of Wall Street banks. We hope the City Council will be that champion, and do what is now being done in Baltimore, New Haven, Oakland and a growing list of cities nation-wide: take the looted money back."
While the current story in Lebanon develops, it will be useful to understand the role Hariri has so far played. The republished article below, originally posted in May, 2012, is by no means an exhaustive expose of Hariri and his role in executing the foreign agenda driven by Wall Street, London, Tel Aviv, Doha, and Riyadh, which starts well before 2007. . Originally posted May 21, 2012 -The United Nations has been inexplicably silent over revelations that the United States, Saudi Arabia, and other Persian Gulf states, are arming militants in Syria in direct violation of a UN brokered ceasefire. Additionally, the US has openly threatened to arm Kurd militants in Syria to "rise up" against the government. While in reality this constitutes a greater threat to neighboring Turkey, and perhaps an attempt to motivate Ankara to take a more aggressive stance against Syria, the threat of purposefully inciting more violence in a conflict that has allegedly claimed "10,000" lives, seems not only grossly irresponsible ...
Daniel BilladoCarol Costello CNN Carol I am Daniel Billado Sr. I live in Swanton Vermont, Serve on our local Select Board as Vice Chair. I work at IBM in Essex Junction Vermont; My 21 year old son is at Tufts Medical Center in Boson Ma. Waiting for a heart transplant. The reason of this note. Between wife and myself, we work four jobs just to make ends meet. I read the newspapers; watch CNN, Fox, CBS and most other news Medias. I am sick and tired of this presidential campaign!! Not once have I heard one mention of the prices at the pumps and the cost of folks living on fixed incomes paying $4.00 a gallon to heat their homes. Speculators on Wall Street still there after four years driving 40% of the price of gas... Oboma stated during his first campaign speculators were top on his priority list?? Just think if the folks could put two dollars for every gallon of gas bought in the United States the effect on the economy. I am spending ½ of my mortgage every month on gas at the pumps. While Big Oil reports ...
From the Washington State Voter's Guide, General Election 2012 -- Statement of the Barack Obama/Joe Biden candidates for President/Vice President of the United States: "Over the last few decades, middle-class security had been slipping away for families who worked hard and played by the rules. Wages stagnated while costs soared. Fewer employers offered retirement and health benefits. College tuition costs skyrocketed. Then the Wall Street and housing market crashes cost 8.8 million jobs and sent the economy into a deep recession. From day one, President Obama took immediate action to put Americans back to work, stopping the bleeding and reversing the trend. He also began laying the foundation for a real recovery that has strong roots and a job-creating economy that's built to last. We are now at a make-or-break moment for the Middle Class, and the President knows that we must respond by restoring the basic values of balance and fairness that made our country great. President Obama believes Americans shoul ...
Seven men in Wall Street now control a great share of the fundamental industry and resources of the United States. Three of the seven men, J.P. Morgan, James J. Hill, and George F. Baker, head of the First National Bank of New York belong to the so-called Morgan group; four of them, John D. and William Rockefeller, James Stillman, head of the National City Bank, and Jacob H.
Mitt Romney appears to be the worst Republican candidate since Barry Goldwater. He calls seniors, veterans, and pay roll tax payers freeloaders who depend on entitlements. He disrespects us and feels entitled to our votes. We are the 47% he says he will have no time for as President of the United States. His focus will be greedy Wall Street.the Republican pay masters.
huffington: Kareem Serageldin, former head of structured credit trading at Credit Suisse, was arrested in London yesterday and will be extradited to the United States to face charges that were filed against him back in February, in what the Wall Street Journal describes as "the highest-level Wall Street executive to be charged in a case relating to the 2008 financial meltdown." But if this is the biggest arrest we're going to get out of the financial crisis, this is laughably weak. Snagging somebody like Serageldin or one of his traders is like arresting one of hundreds of looters during a blackout and not bothering to figure out how the blackout happened in the first place. Serageldin and two of his traders are accused of not properly marking down the value of collateralized debt obligations stuffed with mortgages as the value of those mortgages fell in late 2007. They did this, according to Manhattan U.S. Attorney Preet Bharara, to make their trading book look profitable and get some multi-million-dolla ...
With the election coming up, I am taking note of our great presidents. A book entitled "No Ordinary Time" Franklin and Eleanor Roosevelt - Doris Kearns Goodwin - has made many "must read" lists. It was a excellent book. FDR was a man of the people and for the people. FDR, being very wealthy, was only a footnote in his legacy. FDR, was the 32nd President of the United States (1933–1945) and a central figure in world events during the mid-20th century, leading the United States during a time of worldwide economic depression and total war. The only American president elected to more than two terms, he facilitated a durable coalition that realigned American politics for decades. With Most of the regulations on business were ended about 1975–85, except for the regulation of Wall Street by the Securities and Exchange Commission, which still exists. Along with several smaller programs, major surviving programs include the Federal Deposit Insurance Corporation, which was created in 1933, and Social Security, ...

White House hopeful Ron Paul and the American Civil Liberties Union each condemned the United States' killing of Anwar al-Awlaki, an American citizen who has never been charged with any crime. Al Qaeda's Anwar al-Awlaki killed in Yemen Paul, a staunch Libertarian, said in New Hampshire Friday that it's "sad" if "the American people accept this blindly and casually," adding that "nobody knows if he ever killed anybody," According to the Wall Street Journal. the Texas Republican lawmaker said United States officials "have never been specific about the crime." The ACLU said the killing was a violation of both U.S. and international law. "As we've seen today, this is a program under which American citizens far from any battlefield can be executed by their own government without judicial process, and on the basis of standards and evidence that are kept secret not just from the public but from the courts," said Jameel Jaffer, deputy legal director for the ACLU. "The government's authority to use lethal force ag ...
Dear Friends --Right, Left, & Center... I sincerely like & prefer Barack Obama as President of the United States. He's got a level head & a cool hand. He knows not only the nature of the office, but has experience navigating the games of cunning Washington insiders, the media, & Wall-Street. He seems a decent man. He's a Constitutional scholar, a gentleman, & a good father. As nearly everyone readily admits, Barack Obama is a very skilled & effective speaker, even a great one -- plain speaking, good-natured & intelligent. An intellectual who shoots from the hip AND shoots hoops. A sober thinker with Black roots AND White roots AND Immigrant roots, who not only SEEMS to come from the people, but actually does. EVEN IF all that were merely an act, Barack Obama does it *** well. Certainly better than any other person I've seen stepping into the race for the White House. Who would we rather have as our Chief Executive, if not Barack Obama? Certainly not Mitt Romney . I'm starting to doubt whether he's even ...
Quietly, without fanfare or Congressional hearings, the USA Patriot Act in 2001 bestowed on the 12 privately owned Federal Reserve Banks, domestic policing powers. Section 364 of the Act, “Uniform Protection Authority for Federal Reserve,” reads: “Law enforcement officers designated or authorized by the Board or a reserve bank under paragraph (1) or (2) are authorized while on duty to carry firearms and make arrests without warrants for any offense against the United States committed in their presence…Such officers shall have access to law enforcement information that may be necessary for the protection of the property or personnel of the Board or a reserve bank.” The police officers are technically known as FRLEO, short for Federal Reserve Law Enforcement Officer. The system has its own police academies for training, their own patch and badges, uniforms, pistols, rifles, police cars and the power to arrest coast to coast without a warrant. They have ranks of Sergeant, Lieutenant, Captain and a ...
Ron Paul has been saying for years that if we continued to run our economy on runaway government spending, endless amounts of debt and the insanity of letting the Federal Reserve control our currency then eventually the United States economy would crash. Did that not happen? But neither political party is seeking to end this orgy of debt. Instead both of the major parties pushed the "Wall Street bailouts" down the throats of the American people and both political parties have continually voted to spend even more money. But the American people didn't want to listen a true fiscal conservative like Ron Paul. Now we are paying the price.
The following are a few notable events that took place on September 17, as listed in Wikipedia: 1630 - The city of Boston, Massachusetts is founded. Almost immediately, a bitter rivarly ensued between Bostonians and the Dutch settlers in New Amsterdam, who couldn't figure out what they meant by "the curse of the Bambino." 1787 - The Constitution of the United States is signed in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania. It is the foundational document for our system of government and the guarantee of our basic rights as U.S. citizens. It is stored in the National Archives in Washington, D.C., in case any of the candidates running for office this year need a quick refresher... 1862 - Major General George B. McClellan halts Robert E. Lee's Confederate army as it was driving northward through Maryland. Their confrontation near Sharpsburg and Antietam Creek, now known as the Battle of Antietam, was the first major Civil War battle to take place on Union soil, and it became the bloodiest single-day battle in American histor ...
Regardless of Democrat or Republican, I hope everyone realizes Obama was a mistake, relying on Government to feed, employ & insure the entire nation is just ludicrous...he's going to bankrupt the United States & is currently allowing the Arab world to spit in our face after all we have done for them...protection for trade routes...the value of such has no value...unfortunately, we live in a world that is not peaceful, but his lack of a response to current events abroad is unacceptable...perhaps he should quit blowing smoke up America's *** quit blaming Wall Street for making money & actually do something other than lay blame...pre-existing conditions you say, that's too easy to attack, should have been done decades ago, but I fear for the safety of my children & am buying as much gold as I can before all the lies finally lead to riots & violence in our own streets...4 more years of Obama? Reminds me of Jimmy Carter when I was younger or Calvin Coolidge before I was born...if you do nothing about anythi ...
can read our newest eBook, the fascinating biography of Dorothy Thompson, on any electronic device. Dorothy Thompson (1893-1961) was America’s first internationally famous female foreign correspondent. Born near Buffalo, she graduated from Syracuse University and honed her writing and interviewing skills in the women’s suffrage movement before heading for Europe as a freelance journalist. Reporting from Vienna, Budapest and Berlin during the rise of Nazism, she was the first western journalist to be expelled from Germany by Hitler after denigrating him in a profile. Her syndicated political columns and national radio broadcasts made her, next to Eleanor Roosevelt, the most influential woman in the United States. Thompson was married three times: her second marriage was to American novelist, Nobel Prize-winner, and alcoholic Sinclair Lewis; her third and happiest, to Czech artist Maxim Kopf. She also had several *** relationships. Avidly interested in everything from sustainable farming to the fine ...
Look I am not saying we should forget about what happened to this country 11 years ago, but people this is not the only attack to the us. Why dont you remember all those?? like Febuary 26, 1993?? or United States 1910, 1 October: Los Angeles Times bombing by a member of the International Association of Bridge and Structural Iron Workers Union killed 21 people and injured an additional 100. United States 1920, 16 September: Wall Street bombing killed 38 people and wounded 300 others. United States 1940–1956: George Metesky, the "Mad Bomber", placed over 30 bombs in New York City in public places such as Grand Central Station and The Paramount Theater, injuring ten during this period in protest against the local electric utility. He also sent many threatening letters. United States 1962, 22 May: Continental Airlines Flight 11 explodes and crashes near Unionville, Missouri, killing all 45 on board (the only initial survivor succumbed to injuries later in hospital) after it was determined to be a suici ...
Before taking the oath of office, Barack Obama vowed to fundamentally transform the United States. He has certainly done so. For example, Obama has: -- destroyed the job market; -- sent billions of taxpayer dollars to Wall Street, companies overseas, his campaign contributors and Public Sector unions; -- forced the passage of a wildly unpopular national Health Care law on a purely partisan vote; -- come out for *** marriage; -- refused to enforce laws on illegal immigration; -- eliminated the work requirement for welfare. How can a country that elected Ronald Reagan have Obama tied in the polls with Mitt Romney? The answer is: It's not the same country.
The Message From Both Parties Is That Americans Are Disposable If political conventions are ranked on a one to ten scale for intelligence, I give the Republican Convention zero and the Democrats one. How can the United States be a superpower when both political parties are unaware of everything that is happening at home and abroad? The Republicans are relying for victory on four years of anti-Oba ma propaganda and their proprietary programed electronic voting machines. For nearly four years Republican operatives have flooded the Internet with portraits of Obama as a non-US citizen, as a Muslim (even while Obama was murdering Muslims in seven countries), and as a Marxist (put in power by the Israel Lobby, Wall Street, and the military/security complex). Most Republican voters will vote against Obama based on these charges despite the curious fact that no committee in the Republican-controlled House of Representatives held a hearing to determine if Obama is a citizen. If Obama were not a citizen, why would ...
The President's acceptance speech at the Democratic National Convention, last night - my thoughts: Then there's the President of the United States, Barack Obama. What can I say?? Every major point/concern he hit directly. No, he was not very specific (that'll be flushed out during the debates!) but he did one thing that will echo from the shores of Maine, to the coastline of California, from the Aleutian Islands off the coast of Alaska, to the Florida Keys, North Dakota to Texas; to the US territories around the globe and all points in between; to the mothers, fathers, sons, daughters, grandparents, extended family members, the single parent raising a family, secondary school children, to those in college, seniors managing or struggling with medical/health challenges, nurses, healthcare providers, hospital staff personnel, hospice care providers, local, city, county, state and federal employees, those who feel they're on the fringes, to mainstream middle America; to the farmers, the doctors, lawyers, poli ...
Does this sound like someone you want running our country? Why would the president of the United States: • Hold Corporate America, Wall Street and the wealthy in contempt. • Run against capitalism in a country run by capitalism. • Deny America's exceptionalism on the world stage and lead from behind. • Apologize and bow, literally, to Third World leaders in a bizarre and unprecedented doctrine of mea culpa. • Throw key Middle East ally Israel under the bus over Jewish settlements. • Withdraw hastily from Afghanistan while refusing to talk about this key front in the War on Terror in terms of victory. • Propose slashing the U.S. nuclear arsenal, while mothballing missile defense. • Fail to guard National Security secrets critical to protecting America from foreign threats. • Curb domestic oil production and block the Keystone Pipeline, while underwriting exploration and drilling in South America. • Compound America's debt crisis with even more federal spending, risking more U.S. credit ...
2012 Election I have been very vocal in my disappointment in the current administration, however, I know that a Romney administration would even be worse for American workers and the American economy. Having an Ayn Rand devotee as the republican Vice President candidate is a very scary thought. I cannot in good conscious vote for President Obama based on his expansion of the war on terror. I see U.S. military adventurism in the Middle East which has resulted in the deaths and serious injuries of thousands of American working class G.I.s and hundreds of thousands of innocent civilians in Iraq, Afghanistan, Yemen, Somalia, Libya and other "global hotspots of terrorism" around the world. I have serious issues with the use of American drones to make attacks in sovereign nations. I also have problems that the democrats have not fought hard for a single payer Health Care system which is vitally needed in the United States to meet the needs of our people. Health Care reform did not even include a public op ...
– 0 mentions of Financial Reform: Even as millions of Americans struggle with the effects of the Great Recession caused by Wall Street malfeasance and scores of others continue to deal with the fallout of the foreclosure fraud scandal, Romney has said that he will repeal the 2010 Dodd-Frank financial reform law, but has yet to detail what, if anything, he would put in its place. — 0 mentions of Climate Change: “President Obama promised to begin to slow the rise of the oceans and heal the planet,” Romney said to loud laughter. It’s too bad that he and most of the GOP delegates don’t believe in the very real threat of Global Warming. – 0 mentions of Immigration: “We are a nation of immigrants,” Romney said, without explaining how he would help the 12 million undocumented immigrants in the United States. Romney has not said if he would rescind Obama’s temporary directive permitting young undocumented immigrants to work in the country, though his advisers have suggested that he would. – ...

Senator Bernie Sanders: "A handful of billionaires own a significant part of the wealth of America and have enormous control over our economy. The wealthiest 400 individuals own more wealth than the bottom 150 million Americans - half the country. One family, the Walton family of Wal-Mart fame, is worth $89 billion, more than the bottom 40 percent of America." "What the Supreme Court did in Citizens United is to say to these same billionaires and the corporations they control: 'You own and control the economy, you own Wall Street, you own the coal companies, you own the oil companies. Now, for a very small percentage of your wealth, we're going to give you the opportunity to own the United States Government.'
I am a Black Man born in Brooklyn, raised in Queens. Spent years outside the U.S.A., went to Baruch College & Katharine Gibbs School, worked on Wall Street & in Rockefeller Center. Do you believe that someone still wanted to check my BIRTH CERTIFICATE. Maybe because people from NYC don't consider themselves part of the United States. We think the United States is part of New York. Or maybe because I am Black.

Samsung braces for US ban on its Galaxy smartphones and tablets following Apple victory. People line up to enter the Robert F Peckham Federal Courthouse in San Jose, California to watch the Apple v Samsung Electronics trial. WITH the trial verdict now delivered, Samsung Electronics faces the prospect of a devastating ban on its mobile products in the US with another hearing set for September. Apple, who was victorious in its United States legal action against the South Korean phone and tablet computer maker, announced after the trial that it planned to lodge an injunction against Samsung selling its devices in the US within the next seven days. Reports in the US say that the trial judge has set September 20 for a hearing on the issue. A US federal jury found that Seoul-based Samsung stole Apple's technology to make and market smartphones using Google's Android software. Apple lawyers say they will now formally demand Samsung pull its most popular smartphones and computer tablets from the US market. They a ...
First we elect Romney. Then move Wall Street to an offshore location. (Wait, that's already been done. OK, well drop that idea). Then we set up the White House on one of the three Cayman Islands. Put congress on the second and the Supreme Court on the third island. We officially declare Romney as Emperor. Have him attack: Syria, Israel, Jordan, Egypt and Saudi Arabia. Let Romney clean up the mess in the Middle East. Declare these nations to be the New Republic of the United States (NRUS - ours). Lockup all the bad guys and any of 'our' good guys that get in the way. And finally offer every American "Christian" a free trip to the Holy Land. Well at least the good Mormon's. And those with several wives can move to the head of the line. Oh, and I forgot, bring polygamy and prohibition back to the US of A.
2. GOP Depression- Today's economic climate is a scary one. Though the unemployment rate has dropped to 8.3%, there is still only one job opening for every four Americans looking for work. As Ronald Reagan dropped the top tax rate from 70% to 28% during his eight years in office and deregulated Big Business and the financial sector, the United States was placed on a path of economic destruction. President Clinton stabilized the economy enough that he was able to hand a surplus to George W. Bush in 2001, but all the reckless actions by Wall Street drove the United States to the brink until a taxpayer bailout of the banks was needed in 2008. They say history repeats itself and that is true in this case. When the Stock Market Crashed in 1929 it was because of the same actions that took place during the 1980s and 1990s. The Great Depression was started by deregulation and bad tax policies of three Republican presidents. Starting with Warren Harding in 1921, through Calvin Coolidge and then Herbert Hoover, the ...
•Romney wants to be President to fulfill a cult prophecy. When Mitt Romney received his patriarchal blessing as a Michigan teenager, he was told that the Lord expected great things from him. All young Mormon men — the “worthy males” of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints, as it is officially known — receive such a blessing as they embark on their requisite journeys as religious missionaries. But at 19 years of age, the youngest son of the most prominent Mormon in American politics — a seventh-generation direct descendant of one of the faith’s founding 12 apostles—Mitt Romney had been singled out as a destined leader. The Cougar Club — the all male, all white social club at Brigham Young University in Salt Lake City (blacks were excluded from full membership in the Mormon church until 1978) — was humming with talk that its president, Mitt Romney, would become the first Mormon President of the United States. “If not Mitt, then who?” was the ubiquitous slogan within the el ...
Largest Contributors for Obama It should be of no surprise that among Barak Obama's top 20 campaign contributors, 5 are financial institutions. (Also of note, 4 are law firms and 1 is the largest tax evader in the United States - General Electric). Goldman Sachs, JPMorgan Chase, Citigroup, UBS, and Morgan Stanley are all active supporters of President Obama, the targets of anti-Wall Street populism, recievers of bailout money, and have grown market share significantly in the past 4 years.
Today's Corporate Democrats: The More Effective Republicans! "At the beginning of September, Charlotte, NC will host the 2012 Democratic National Convention. The Democratic Party has chosen this “Wall Street of the South” as its rallying city despite North Carolina being one of the most anti-union states in the country and despite Charlotte being the home of several corporate criminals, most notably Bank of America, one of the mega-banks most responsible for the 2008 economic meltdown. Charlotte holds the second largest concentration of finance capital in the United States, the East Coast headquarters of Wells Fargo, the new home of human-rights offender Chiquita, and the home of Duke Energy, which recently merged with Progress Energy, making Duke the largest energy monopoly in the country."
Saudi Arabia has been and to this day is the primary underwriter of the notorious international terror organization, Al Qaeda. Created along with Saudi Arabia's long-time ally, the United States, money, weapons, and directives are laundered through the Saudis to maintain both plausible deniability for the Americans, and to maintain a degree of credibility for Al Qaeda's sectarian extremist foot-soldiers across the Muslim World. Saudi Arabian corporate-financier interests (run by the royal family) are tied directly to Wall Street and London via conglomerations like the US-Saudi Arabian Business Council and representation upon the JP Morgan InterNational Council (Khalid Al-Falih of Saudi Aramco, amongst the highest valued companies on Earth). Saudi Arabia has played an active role in the violent destabilization of governments around the world, including most recently Libya and Syria. The use of sectarian-extremists indoctrinated at Saudi-funded faux-mosques and madrasas, armed and funded by Saudi cash, is t ...
I will vote for Obama in 2012. 12 Things You Should Know About Vice Presidential Candidate Paul Ryan (Scott Hoffman - Mitt Romney just introduced Paul Ryan as "the next president of the United States." Apparently, even ROMNEY doesn't want ROMNEY for president.) 1. Raises taxes on the Middle Class, cuts them for millionaires. 2. Dramatically increases Medicare costs for seniors, increases eligibility age. ...3. Leaves Social Security to the whims of Wall Street. 4. Budget would result in 4.1 million lost jobs in 2 years. 5. Eliminates Pell Grants for more than 1 million students. 6. Embraces extreme individualism (selfishness is “virtue.”) 7. Keeps $40 billion in subsidies for Big Oil. 8. Ryan’s Family stands to benefit from oil subsidies 9. Claimed Romneycare has led to “rationing and benefit cuts.” 10. Believes that Romneycare is “not that dissimilar to Obamacare.” 11. Accused generals of lying about their support for Obama’s military budget. 12. Co-sponsored a personhood amendment. Image ...
