WHAT REALLY HAPPENED | The History The US Government HOPES You Never Learn!


"The time is now near at hand which must probably determine, whether Americans are to be, Freemen, or Slaves; whether they are to have any property they can call their own; whether their Houses, and Farms, are to be pillaged and destroyed, and they consigned to a State of Wretchedness from which no human efforts will probably deliver them. The fate of unborn Millions will now depend, under God, on the Courage and Conduct of this army" -- Gen. George Washington, to his troops before the battle of Long Island

Q&A on Obamacare

A few days ago, via e-mail correspondence, I answered some queries about the new health-care-insurance law put to me by Marina Galisova, a reporter for the Slovak weekly magazine Tyzden. It seems that this interview has formed the topic of an article in the magazine, although I cannot be sure because I cannot read Slovak. In any event, on the assumption that not many readers of The Beacon can read Slovak, either, I reproduce here the questions Galisova put to me and my answers.

Mumbai Terrorist Was US Agent

After terrorist conspirator and “former” U.S. government agent David Coleman Headley received promises of leniency and extradition protection from American prosecutors for his role in the 2008 Mumbai massacre, speculation about his true masters was set ablaze as outrage erupted across India.

Headley — a former Drug Enforcement Administration agent and the son of a Pakistani diplomat — pled guilty to various criminal charges on March 18 in connection with his terrorist activities in India, Pakistan and Denmark. He is reportedly “cooperating” with investigators.

Atheists are believers who hate God, says Anglican Archbishop Peter Jensen

Webmaster's Commentary: 

The absence of belief is not a belief.

Equating atheism with belief is like calling "barefoot" a type of shoe.

All of this tortured logic and spin is, of course, an attempt by the Vatican to pull the focus off of the real issue, which is the epidemic of molested children and the subsequent cover-up.

Mark Twain on the Bible and Religion

...a God who could make good children as easily a bad, yet preferred to make bad ones; who could have made every one of them happy, yet never made a single happy one; who made them prize their bitter life, yet stingily cut it short; who gave his angels eternal happiness unearned, yet required his other children to earn it; who gave is angels painless lives, yet cursed his other children with biting miseries and maladies of mind and body; who mouths justice, and invented hell--mouths mercy, and invented hell--mouths Golden Rules and foregiveness multiplied by seventy times seven, and invented hell; who mouths morals to other people, and has none himself; who frowns upon crimes, yet commits them all; who created man without invitation, then tries to shuffle the responsibility for man's acts

Rational thoughts from a religious skeptic. — Mark Twain

The Christian’s Bible is a drug store. Its contents remain the same; but the medical practice changes… The world has corrected the Bible. The church never corrects it; and also never fails to drop in at the tail of the procession — and take the credit of the correction. During many ages there were witches. The Bible said so. the Bible commanded that they should not be allowed to live. Therefore the Church, after eight hundred years, gathered up its halters, thumb-screws, and firebrands, and set about its holy work in earnest. She worked hard at it night and day during nine centuries and imprisoned, tortured, hanged, and burned whole hordes and armies of witches, and washed the Christian world clean with their foul blood.

Mark Twain quotations - Religion

Man is a Religious Animal. He is the only Religious Animal. He is the only animal that has the True Religion--several of them. He is the only animal that loves his neighbor as himself and cuts his throat if his theology isn't straight. He has made a graveyard of the globe in trying his honest best to smooth his brother's path to happiness and heaven. - "The Lowest Animal"

I am quite sure now that often, very often, in matters concerning religion and politics a man's reasoning powers are not above the monkey's. - Mark Twain in Eruption

Israel pounds Gaza with missiles

The Israeli military said it had targeted weapons storage facilities in the central Gaza Strip, in Gaza City in the north and the southern Gaza Strip, all in response to rockets fired from Gaza.

Late on Thursday and just two hours before the air strikes, the military said a Palestinian rocket fired from Gaza had landed in an open area of southern Israel.

There was no claim of responsibility for the rocket, which caused no casualties.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Okay folks, here is a question: Do you really think that in 20 years the Palestinians haven't figured out a way to have these rockets actually hit something useful? (And by the way there was only one rocket last Wednesday.) And if the Palestinians have a rocket (a firework really) that doesn't hit anything useful and does not cause any damage, why would they even fire it, knowing that this will give Israel the excuse to come in with all their modern weapons (paid for by the US tax payer) and start blowing up what little the Gazan people have left to live on?

Or does it really make much more sense that these totally useless and ineffective rockets are just a propaganda device by Israel's agents-provocateurs to justify a renewal of the military efforts to push the Palestinians off of what is left of their lands?

Thirteen Israeli air strikes hit Gaza Strip

Israeli warplanes have carried out at least 13 air strikes on the Hamas-ruled Gaza Strip, Palestinian sources have told the BBC.

There were no immediate reports of casualties.

Four of the strikes took place near the town of Khan Younis, where two Israeli soldiers were killed in clashes with Palestinian fighters last week.

The Israeli strikes are the most serious for more than a year, says the BBC's Jon Donnison from Jerusalem.

Oregon Gov/AG to defend forced health bill in court

Oregon plans to defend health care reform bill in court
April 01, 2010 3:28 PM
While 15 states, including Virginia, plan to wage a legal fight against the new federal health care reform bill, Oregon is taking the opposite tack. According to the Portland Business Journal, Gov. Ted Kulongoski and Attorney General John Kroger announced today that Oregon will be the first state to take legal action in court to defend the bill.
Kroger is quoted as saying that “I think it is critical that the courts hear not just from the opponents of the health care legislation, but from those states that believe it is constitutional.” He plans to ask attorney generals in other state to work with Oregon to develop a legal strategy.

Israeli planes and helicopters bomb Gaza targets

Israeli planes and helicopters carried out at least seven missile attacks on the Hamas-ruled Gaza Strip on Friday, causing damage and slightly wounding two children, Palestinian witnesses and officials said. They said four air strikes took place in open areas near the central town of Khan Younis, the site of a deadly clash last week between Israeli troops and Palestinian gunmen.

Two caravans were destroyed there in Friday's attack but there were no casualties, officials said. A fifth missile hit a cheese factory in Gaza City, setting it on fire, witnesses and Hamas officials said. Hospital officials said two children were injured by flying debris.

Helicopters struck twice in the central refugee camp of Nusseirat, destroying a metal foundry. There were no casualties.

A Rare Voice Of Courage: Journalist Gideon Levy

Gideon Levy: Zionism has many meanings. For sure, the common concept of Zionism includes the occupation, includes the perception that Jews have more rights in Palestine than anyone else, that the Jewish people are the chosen people, that there can’t be equality between Jews and Arabs, Jews and Palestinians. All those beliefs which are very basic in current Zionism, I can’t share them. In this sense, I can define myself as an anti-Zionist.

The Lobby vs. America

As I listened to Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu address an animated crowed of supporters on March 22, I felt physically sick. The man has already displayed time and again a complete lack of moral sense or ethical framework in his words and actions. In his recent arguments, he once again twisted history, manipulated facts and fabricated his own selective, self-interested and highly questionable narrative. Netanyahu, a colonialist from a faraway land, also had the audacity to convince himself and a few others that he had legal, moral and historic rights over my land. While I am the son of a Palestinian family rooted in Palestine since time immemorial, Netanyahu is the son of an immigrant from Lithuania. While he giddily robs more Palestinian land in Jerusalem, I live in exile.

Tittle-tattles regarding the possibility of a military strike against Iran are being renewed these days. President Obama, to whom I still wonder why the Nobel Peace Prize has gone, is confessing that former President Bush was right in his belief that Iran poses a serious threat to the international community; Russia is cowardly retreating from its position, joining the rest of world's tyrannical powers who favor the imposition of new sanctions against Iran; fueled up by Israel and AIPAC, American corporate media are laying the groundwork to prepare the public opinions forcefully, convincing them that Iran is the most dangerous country in the Middle East and should be disarmed as soon as possible, otherwise, it may attack Israel to wipe it off the map.

Global Warming Is a Joke, But Its Propaganda Is No Laughing Matter

Little dismisses ClimateGate as about a “small handful of scientists.” As I’ve explained before, and has Ed Morrissey has compiled, the scandal reaches far beyond East Anglia University—we have since learned plenty of troubling things about the poor standards, selective measurements, biased work, and intellectual intolerance that tarnishes not just their work, but the National Oceanic & Atmospheric Administration, NASA’s Goddard Institute, and the United Nations’ very own Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change.

CLIMATEGATE - spiegel: peter webster only person with phil jones data: says its rubbish

While amateur climatologist McIntyre spent years begging in vain for the raw data, Webster eventually managed to convince Jones to send them to him. He is the only scientist to date who has been given access to the data. "To be honest, I'm shocked by the sloppy documentation," Webster told SPIEGEL.

Unnoticed by the public, Webster has spent several months searching for inconsistencies in the Jones curve. For example, it has been known for some time that there are noticeable jumps in ocean temperature readings. The reason for the inconsistencies is that, beginning in the 1940s, water temperature was no longer measured in buckets filled with seawater, but at the intake valves for the water used to cool ship engines.

Geithner: Pickpocketing Trillions from the People to Give to the Oligarchy Was "Deeply Unfair", But We ... Um ... Had To

Tim Geithner told the Today Show that:

It's "deeply unfair" that some financial institutions that got taxpayer-paid bailouts are emerging in better shape from the recession than millions of ordinary Americans.

Geithner also argued that President Barack Obama had no choice when confronted with a financial crisis.

"As the president has said, we had to do some very unpopular things," Geithner said. "People looked at what had happened."

"It's not fair. It's deeply unfair," he said. "He (Obama) had to decide whether he was going to act to fix it or stand back ... and that would have been calamitous for the American economy."

There are only a couple of minor inaccuracies in Geithner's statements:

"Fabrication" or "Lie" in the IPCC AR4 WGI

Ross McKitrick, an economist at the University of Guelph, has written an interesting and troubling essay about his misadventures in trying to correct via publication in the peer reviewed literature a statement in the IPCC AR4 WGI report that he characterizes as a "fabrication" or a "lie" (here as a PDF). Whatever you might think about Professor McKitrick or his academic work, the accuracy of his claim that the IPCC published an obvious misrepresentation of his work should be without doubt, as you can read for yourself in his essay. The misrepresentation is straightforward and obvious, and I agree that the terms "fabrication" or "lie" in this context are not too strong. If anyone reading has an argument to the contrary (such as "innocent mistake"), I'd love to hear it.

Lisa Jackson, Obama’s EPA director, has just announced the agency’s new auto regulations of gas mileage based on global warming. In addition, the agency asserts the right to regulate carbon dioxide (CO2) emissions under the Clean Air Act.

There is absolutely no scientific justification for this and, indeed, many observers believe the EPA lacks the legal authority regarding its stance on CO2.

There is NO need to limit greenhouse gas emissions because there is NO “global warming.”

There are more demands tonight for a Fresno priest accused of child molestation to leave the ministry. A Southern California woman who says she is a survivor of priest abuse is protesting Bishop John Steinbock's decision not to suspend Father Eric Swearingen.

Mary Grant claims she was raped by a priest as a teenager growing up in Orange County. Now, she's the Western Director of SNAP, or Survivors Network of those Abused by Priests. Grant is demanding Bishop John Steinbock remove Father Eric Swearingen from the priesthood. Mary Grant says, "To allow that parish to be placed at risk of abuse is inconceivable; he needs to be removed immediately."

Pope willing to excommunicate Catholic Priests accused of pedophilia, turn them over to authorities

In a surprising, yet reassuring turn of events, Pope Benedict XIV, the head of the Catholic Church has announced that he is willing to excommunicate any and all Catholic Priests who have been rightfully accused of pedophilia while in service to the Catholic Church.

"It is my sworn duty to uphold the tenets of the faith which rest securely on the never changing, holy scripture, which speaks succinctly, yet passionately, against sexual sin within the body of Christ." Pope Benedict wrote in a letter addressed to "Fellow Catholics, Christians, and citizens of this great planet."

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Well, it sounds wonderful, and yes child molesters should go to jail. But this flip-flop, in which the same guy who covered up priestly sexual crimes for thirty years is now throwing same to the wolves to save himself, demonstrates that the church does change, which means there are no "eternal tenets"; only what is expedient for the moment.

In other words, the Pope just showed the world that the Catholic church, far from being an eternal and unchanging moral standard for the world, are just ordinary guys, a bunch of dirty old men doing what they please until they got caught.

Yes, throwing the priests into jail will possibly curtail the problem for the moment, but the real principle here is that if indeed the church represents some kind of divine moral authority, the problem should have never happened in the first place. The Pope may escape lawyers, but the church has destroyed its own image as a moral authority.

What You Didn't Know About the Popes of Rome -

Under Leo X (1513-21) – who cursed and excommunicated Martin Luther - specific prices were enumerated by the Roman Chancery for every imaginable crime. For instance, a deacon accused of murder could be absolved for 20 crowns. Once pardoned, he could not be prosecuted by civil authorities. Two hundred years earlier, John XXII had done much the same thing, setting prices for crimes ranging from incest to sodomy.

Navarro-Valls on the Abuse Crisis

The Holy See press office director under John Paul II, Dr. Joaquin Navarro-Valls, has today criticized the media for “a raging phobia” against the Church over pedophilia while ignoring the problem in the rest of society which he says is widespread.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

This is the "everyone fucks children - get off our back" defense.

Catholics have spared no pains to flood my mailbox with emails reminding me that the Talmud condones sex with children. There is also an organization, NAMBLA, which also has an agenda favoring sex with children.

Now, it occurs to me that all three entities, Talmudists, NAMBLAns, and Catholics might be screwing little children, but only two of them, Talmudists and NAMBLA, are honest and up front about what they want.

What is fueling the rage against the Catholic Church is that they are saying one thing but doing something entirely different, and when caught breaking not only their own declared rules but the civil laws as well, held themselves to be above the laws and covered up the scandals for decades.

It's that "Holier than thou" attitude and the hypocrisy it conceals that has really pissed people off. And the Pathetic spin being put forward is only making matters worse.

Slavoj Žižek: Beware the ‘true friends of the idea of ascent’

During the recent healthcare “debate” in the US, advocates of universal coverage were ridiculed as silly dreamers. ‘Given the current political/socio-economic climate’ – so the thinking goes – ‘the idea of covering every man woman and child is so completely implausible that anyone who demands it is guilty of impeding critical progress. If the passage of this reform covers more of society’s underprivileged, it’s a WIN for progressives’, they say. [...] By this line of reasoning striking down a crappy bill and taking a few steps back down the mountain is seen as irrational and inhumane. But as Slavoj Zizek argues in the passage above, these “true friends of the idea of ascent” aren’t really worth listening to.

CA Banks: Who Are They Working For?

Does it seem right to you that a state's ability to stay afloat should be the stuff of secretive betting pools? That's just what's happening. While states like California struggle to pay their teachers, librarians and cops, traders are gambling -- by buying credit default swaps -- on the fate of our biggest state. And that's just half the story.

The very same banks that sell and profit off the swaps, at the same time underwrite and price the state's assets -- their municipal bonds. That means that even as JP Morgan Chase, Barclays, Goldman Sachs and Citigroup deal out the bonds that the state issues to raise cash, they're making money, separately, on the risks involved. They get their fees coming and going.

The Rev. James Patrick Grady, 58, was nabbed in an FBI pedophile sting last summer, in which he had agreed to pay $80 for oral sex. Investigators later discovered child porn on his laptop computer, which had been purchased by his parish.

Great-grandmother given an electronic tag and curfew for selling a goldfish to a 14 year-old

A great-grandmother has been ordered to wear an electronic tag for breaching new animal welfare laws by selling a goldfish to a 14 year-old boy.

Joan Higgins, a pet shop owner, was caught selling the fish to the teenager in a 'sting' operation by council officials. She was then prosecuted in an eight month court process estimated to have cost the taxpayer more than £20,000.

Under new animal welfare laws, passed in 2006, it is it illegal to sell goldfish to under 16s. Offenders can be punished with up to 12 months in prison.

Torture humans? No problem!!

Invade non-aggressive countries, and kill innocents? No problem!!

Paul Krugman Government will save a lot of money with death panels.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Here is how the government plans to get itself out of the financial mess it is in.

Starting back in the Clinton administration, the cash build-up in Social Security, intended to cover the retirements of the Baby Boomer generation, was looted in order to cover the then-already out of control Federal budget. This was called a "loan", but the loan was made during a period claimed to be an economic boom time, which means there was never going to be an economy generating enough tax revenues to repay that loan any time soon, and sure enough, in the present economy, repayment of this "loan" is impossible.

Now the US Government, like the Vatican, operates from behind an imposed illusion of infallibility. The President, like the Pope, cannot admit error lest the sheep lose faith and stop tossing money into those collection plates/1040 forms. Anything bad that happens gets blamed on Satan or Iran, while credit is taken for anything good that happens. Both institutions charge money to intercede with nature, promising escapes from death and global warming (in exchange for obedience and a fee),and both attack critics as heretics and dissidents.

So, like the Pope trying to deal with the sexual abuse case the US Government finds itself in a box. It has embezzled and spent the retirement fu8nds of millions of Americans, But because of the illusion of infallibility the government cannot admit the cupboard is bare. Clearly, the government's financial woes would be greatly diminished if the vast majority of elderly Americans did not survive long enough to demand their full Social Security benefits.

Which is the real meaning behind the observation that the death panels will save the government a huge amount of money.

We Spoke Loudly...But It Didn't Matter At All

Beholden to a handful of financial oligarchs, congressional democrats passed Obamacare, over the opposition of millions of Americans, while republicans in Washington kept the left/right paradigm alive by pretending to oppose the new Healthcare "Reform" Bill.

With the plutocrats of the International Monetary/Banking Cartel in control of all US intelligence agencies, democratic senators and congress-persons had little fear of being voted out of office, when voting for Obamacare, no matter how much their constituents opposed that legislation. You see, its the Cartel's intelligence agents who implement electronic voting machines, that "elect" Cartel minions to congress. And, we the people can go ... well, we can go on pretending we live in a democratic country.

Many Militia Groups Scale Back, Distance Themselves From McVeigh

Though he hoped to spark an armed revolution, Timothy J. McVeigh ended up weakening the anti-government militia movement, whose visible membership has declined since the Oklahoma City bomber’s capture and trial, experts who monitor extremism said yesterday. Militia members expressed a cool indifference about McVeigh’s fate, saying he stigmatized their cause and is no martyr.

A Magnetic Field Applied to the Brain Can Alter People's Sense of Morality

Studies have shown that the right temporo-parietal junction (TPJ) lights up with activity when we engage in moral judgments like evaluating the intentions of another person, indicating the region is important to making moral decisions. But while we like to think we're very consistent in our morality, the MIT team showed that an electromagnetic field applied to the scalp impairs our ability to evaluate the intentions of others, leaving us with little by which to hand down a moral judgment.

Sheik Who Ran $650B Fund Found Dead

The 40-year-old prince had no deputy director at the $650 billion fund, which invests Abu Dhabi's oil revenue. Experts believe his death is likely to spark a power struggle within the emirate's royal family. The sheik wasn't part of the powerful clique controlled by his nephew, the crown prince, who is now expected to attempt to gain control of the fund and consequently control of virtually all of Abu Dhabi's economy.

Police “Welfare Check” Leaves Woman Dead

Police were sent to her apartment to conduct a “welfare check.” For some reason, the woman didn’t want to be “helped” by the friendly state functionaries with guns.

Oh, but we insist, replied the “Blue Angels,” as they summoned their khaki-clad comrades from the Tactical Squad. Eventually, because of “threats” she supposedly made against the stormtroopers, the police (in the words of a local TV reporter) “were forced to shoot her.”

Did Pope Benedict deliberately hide sexual abuse committed by Catholic priests?

Vote in the FOX UP poll below, and leave a comment telling us why or why not.

1963 letter indicates former pope knew of abuse

A 1963 letter to then-Pope Paul VI indicates the Vatican was aware of clergy abuse in the U.S. nearly five decades ago.

Just moments after Dr. Martin Luther King was killed by a sniper's bullet, a photographer took the above picture. Dr. King lies on the balcony floor. The witnesses are all pointing in the direction the fatal shot was fired from. There is no confusion among the witnesses as to where the source of the shot was. They are not confused by echoes. There is no uncertainty. All three witnesses are pointing in exactly the same direction.

The official story is that these men are pointing at the bathroom window in the rear of the rooming house from which James Earl Ray is supposed to have fired a gunshot.

But is that where the witnesses are pointing?

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Sunday is the anniversary of the assassination of Martin Luther King. Already the corporate media is cranking up a plethora of TV offerings to reassure the public of the official myths and attack any who dare suggest that just because the US Government and ABCNNBBCBS was caught lying to us all about Saddam's "nookular" bombs is no reason to ever question anything else the government and media have told us!

Is WikiLeaks a CIA/Mossad Front?

WikiLeaks is getting a lot of publicity in anticipation of a classified film Wikileaks claims to have in its possession that shows evidence of a US massacre of civilians. Images have power – think Abu Ghraib, think Mi Lai – and efforts at "perception management" by the department of defence will be much complicated by documentary evidence that leaves little to interpretation or "perception" of a human rights crime committed by US forces. Wikileaks plans to show the video at the National Press Club in Washington, DC on 5 April.

But Wayne Madsen is reporting that WikiLeaks may well be a CIA/Mossad operation.

Then again maybe Madsen is an operative.

Who can you trust?

Jurors also asked if the two accused understood that firing a gun on the crowded Yonge Street could have resulted in someone getting hit.

Obama - Alleged to be Hated by the Chicago Law School Faculty

The smartest genius President evah is nothing more than a carboard cutout. A fraud. Doesn't exist. We don't even know how he did in school because to this day his transcripts are sealed. Turns out now that when he was an instructor at the Chicago, his colleagues who were actual Professors didn't like him and didn't want him. Obama's position was obtained through political channels.

Is the President's resume accurate when it comes to his career and qualifications? I can corroborate that Obama's "teaching career" at Chicago was, to put it kindly, a sham.

“the seamiest and steamiest hardcore porn films are brought into our living rooms and hotel rooms everyday through the investments of a veritable who’s who of Catholic religious groups.”

Of all the ways the RCC can make money, they chose porn as one.

Instead of ice extent declining through March like it usually does, it continued to increase through the month and is now at the high (so far) for the year.

If it keeps this trend unabated, in a day or two it will likely cross the “normal” line.

Cash-Poor Cities Take On Unions

Mayor Antonio Villaraigosa once organized for a teacher's union here, and later ran a branch of the American Federation of Government Employees. That makes him an unlikely advocate for cutting the benefits of the city's workers.

But with the city facing a budget deficit that could drain its reserves by summer, Mayor Villaraigosa wants to re-open contract talks with 45,000 cops, firefighters, librarians and other city employees in hopes of persuading them to contribute more to their pensions and health-care costs. His deputy chief of staff, Matt Szabo, puts it bluntly: "Unions have priced themselves out of a job."

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Here is my point; The government is cutting costs for all those services we pay taxes for, but still paying full price for weapons of wars and Israel and Wall Street. Government is fighting with itself and with the people over the last few pennies in the bottom of the barrel and has abandoned even the pretense of knowing how to fill that barrel back up.

China 'ready for talks' on new UN sanctions on Iran

The US ambassador to the UN, Susan Rice, said China was ready to hold "serious" talks with Western powers on a new UN resolution.

This would mark a policy shift for China, which has strong ties with Iran. China says it wants a peaceful outcome.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

This may be a misread. In China, not to talk is considered very impolite. So China is always ready to talk. And they are always ready to listen to any offers that might benefit them.

But China is also shrewd enough to understand that new sanctions cannot force Iran to give up nuclear weapons it does not actually have, and that this "failure" will simply be another US and Israeli justification to launch yet another war of conquest against an unoffensive nation and innocent people.

Vacancies Plague a Prestigious Manhattan Tower

With its unparalleled views of Central Park and dramatic black-glass façade wrapped in travertine marble, the swooping tower at 9 West 57th Street in Manhattan is among the world's most prestigious business addresses.

Today, it sits half empty.

Roughly 24 of the building's 50 floors are now vacant, including the top three, according to people familiar with the building. Even in today's dismal real-estate market, the amount of empty space in 9 West, as the building is known, is unique among high-end New York City office towers.

America Is Still Headed Towards Fascism Under Obama

When left-wing icon Naomi Wolf warned that America was heading towards fascism under George W. Bush, characterized by illegal surveillance, arbitrary detention of suspects, and paramilitary martial law, she was lauded, but when she continued to issue the same warning as a result of Obama’s failure to reverse any of those policies, many on the left abandoned support for her.

However, as Wolf’s recent interview with leftist website Alternet makes plain, liberals may finally be starting to understand that both political parties in Washington are part of the problem, not the solution.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

A Fascist economy is characterized by profits being kept private, but losses being socialized across the general population.

... which is exactly what the bailouts are doing.

A society not alert to signs of its own decay, because its ideology is a continuing myth of progress, separates itself from reality and envelops illusion.

The Contrarian Trade of the Decade: The US Dollar

Since so much debt is dollar-denominated, then there will be demand for dollars to pay down debt. That is the essence of deleveraging.

And since other assets will be falling as interest rates rise and risk aversion returns with a terrible vengeance, then "cash will be King." Dollars will rise in value, and the best and safest return on capital will be money-market funds or short-term notes.

Rather than doom the dollar, these trends suggest the dollar could rise in purchasing power and demand for years to come. I know this is contrarian, but ponder the distinction between "printing money" and selling bonds/attempting to expand credit in a credit-averse, collateral-impaired system.

The shackles that bind the US to Israel

Sonja Karbar reminds us that beyond Washington’s superficial admonishing of Israel over its humiliation of the Obama administration lie the unbreakable shackles that paralyse the US and prevent it from translating its words into real action to rein in the Zionist monster.

”The disconnect between words and actions might please those who want peace more than they want justice for the Palestinians, but for many the words have been done to death. By the time proximity talks morph into full negotiations, there will be no Jerusalem left to negotiate and no Palestinians left in Jerusalem. All words will then be meaningless.”

But, as blogger George Maschke notes, that statement is categorically false. The actual report, to which the Fox article links and which the DNI was required by Congress to submit, says no such thing.

Climategate Investigation A Monumental Whitewash

A Parliamentary investigation into the climategate scandal has cleared the scientists involved of any data fixing and subversion of the peer review process, and notes that the scandal provides no evidence to challenge the notion that human activity is causing catastrophic global warming.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

This "investigation" took all of one day and consisted of letting the Hadley CRU scientists make up any nonsense they wanted, such as the claim that "Hide the decline" is science-speak for getting rid of erroneous data. (It isn't!)

I would be tempted to dismiss this as an April Fool's day joke but I think the reality is that the government of Great Britain is as desperate to get their hands on carbon-tax revenues as the US Government, coupled with the fact that governments are operating just like the Vatican these days, in that they presume an aura of infallibility which does not allow one to ever admit error.
