In Defense of Helen Thomas: What’s Wrong With History?

Helen Thomas’s recent request to purchase a table at the upcoming White House Correspondents Association (WHCA) annual dinner has been rejected.

In a comment on that story I said, “It’s hard to imagine anything more wrong than this.”

I base my opinion on the fact that the 91-year-old Thomas, a former WHCA president, is unique among American journalists, having covered 10 different presidential administrations in a career stretching back to Dwight Eisenhower.

It is because of Thomas as much as anyone else that women were first included at the WHCA dinner since, as the WHCA’s website mentions:

European Commission Blames Social Networks For ACTA Failure; Worried About Its Imminent Directive On Copyright Enforcement

He noted that opposition had increased in the run-up to January’s planned vote in the US Congress on two legislative initiatives -- the Stop Online Piracy Act (SOPA) and the Protect Intellectual Property Act (PIPA) -- aimed at increasing the protection of intellectual property rights on the Internet; in the end the vote had not been held, following a hostile campaign by social networks and the loss of White House support.
It's interesting to see De Gucht linking the growing hostility to ACTA with the storm generated by SOPA/PIPA, and giving the credit for stopping those US bills to a "hostile campaign" waged by social networks. You can tell this really worries him, because he says something similar about social networks and ACTA immediately afterwards:

WALL STREET'S MORTGAGE-BACKED SECURITY FRAUD DESTROYED BOTH THE US AND EU ECONOMIES!

Deutsche Bank, a German lender, has sold the Fed more than $290 billion worth of mortgage securities, Fed data through July shows. Credit Suisse, a Swiss bank, sold the Fed more than $287 billion in mortgage bonds.

The data had previously been secret. It was released Wednesday per the recently-enacted law overhauling the federal financial regulation. The Fed, ferociously backed by the Obama administration, fought lawmakers' desire for full disclosure throughout the financial reform debate.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

BUMP BACK TO THE TOP

As detailed in "Bankers Gone Wild", mortgages were cranked out by unscrupulous mortgage brokers, then bundled together into mortgage securities, which were in turn re-sold to investors as triple-A investments, even though the bundles included sub-prime mortgages already defaulting as US jobs were shipped overseas.

These mortgage-backed securities are a Wall Street invention! And at first they appeared to be immensely profitable, so not only were US financial corporations, investment houses, and pension funds buying them, but so too were non financial corporations and major foreign banks including Deutsche Bank and Credit Suisse.

But those early profits were a fiction, and we now know that many of the sellers of mortgage backed securities were engaging in Ponzi scheme activity, using proceeds from sales of mortgage backed securities to pay "earnings" to earlier investors, while the same SEC that had turned a blind eye to Bernie Madoff's $65 billion swindle looked the other way!

Worse, we now know that individual mortgages were pledged as collateral to multiple security bundles, which is illegal! This is briefly mentioned at 3:48 in the next video.

The criminal fraud even went further than that! In the case of Countrywide (now part of Bank of America) the actual titles were never really transferred, leaving the investment bundles entirely unsecured!

What appears to have happened is that the European banks realized that the American investment firms selling those mortgage-backed securities were engaging in fraud! Greenspan has admitted to such.

As the banks of Europe began to feel the major losses from the fraud, they turned to their local governments for financial assistance. In turn, those governments were forced to apply for loans from the International Monetary Fund, plunging their people deeper into debt, and the governments under the control of the private bankers! Indeed one must wonder if this multinational financial fraud had as its ultimate objective the forcing of the entire western world under the control of a giant private bank!.

Obviously, the people of Europe are refusing to be chained to a global bank and seem far more worried about their freedoms than their American counterparts. Yet a quick Google search shows the media encouraging the nations hit with this massive financial fraud to apply to the IMF for more loans, never mentioning that in their indebtedness lies the end of their national sovereignty!

Ultimately the European banks are never going to sit still for fraud, even from Wall Street, and even from the USA! In order to reduce their losses and avoid more IMF entanglements, the European banks demanded a refund on those fraudulent investment packages. No doubt the Wall Street mortgage fraudsters refused, suggesting that the bankers of Europe dump their losses on their populations just as the American banks were being forced to do. That some European banks did so explains why so many European nations are in financial trouble. However, the larger European banks may have decided to "get tough" with the Americans, and this may explain the mysterious electronic run on the US financial system on September 18th, 2008, which almost crashed the US economy. Strangely, the American people were never informed who had initiated the financial transfers, even though obviously this information is recorded in the transactions on the computer systems.

This "attack" may have been a warning from the European main banks to the US to make good on the bad investments, or risk full public exposure for the mortgage backed securities fraud!

Soon after, we learned that the Federal Reserve was handing out trillions and trillions of dollars, loans which the American people are expected to repay, only the Federal Reserve refused to say who was getting the money, and even implied that exposure of the recipients of these trillions of dollars might pose a threat to the US economy. Now, nearly two years later, we find out that the Federal Reserve was buying back the mortgage-backed securities from European banks including Deutsche Bank and Credit Suiss. The reason this was kept secret was that the American people were being told that all these "bailouts" would be repaid, yet common sense tells us that profit cannot be made from an exposed fraud! The Fed could not admit to owning all those mortage-backed securities without being forced to answer the question of just exactly why they were not producing any earnings, with the usual "it was all the borrowers' fault" excuses wearing thin even then! As cash left the nations financial system to cover the repurchase of the fraudulent mortgage backed securities, banks found their balance sheets slipping into the red. The banks were being driven into insolvency making good on the bad paper and this is what triggered the epidemic of fraudulent foreclosures. Banks needed real assets on their balance sheets as quickly as they could to get their balance in the black and their banks out of insolvency. So shortcuts were taken which became known as "foreclosuregate". For some banks, it was too late. Hundreds of banks either dragged down by the fraudulent mortgage securities or made insolvent buying back the bad paper, have been shut down. For other major banks and financial institutions, the tactic worked and they stayed afloat, for which making millions of Americans homeless seemed a small price to pay! Indeed one might explain the hitherto unexplained reluctance by the Federal Government to stem the offshoring of American jobs as a deliberate policy of setting up Americans to lose their homes in order to preserve the capital structure of the banks!

In other words, the American people were looted to make good on the fraud perpetrated by Wall Street not only against American financial institutions, but bankers in the Eurozone as well.

The Wall Street Fraudsters should have gone to jail. But they walk free and clear, saved from the FDIC and prison, heading into a wonderful holiday with record-setting bonuses to spend while ordinary Americans have been made jobless, homeless, and hungry to keep the criminals out of prison.

The Mortgage Backed Securities fraud is the biggest fraud in the history of the United States, and as today's revelations make clear, we still do not know the full scale of the financial rape this nation has suffered.

FLASHBACK - The Hackett Group: Acceleration of Offshoring Trend Driving Loss of Millions of Finance and IT Jobs in U.S. and Europe

There's no end in sight for the jobless recovery in business functions such as corporate finance and IT, in large part due to the accelerated movement of work to India and other offshore locations, according to new research from The Hackett Group, Inc. (NASDAQ: HCKT). The dramatic job losses seen by U.S. and European companies in 2008 and 2009 are expected to continue through 2014, according to The Hackett Group.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

The US Government took your jobs, so that the bankers could take your homes, and make you think it was all your own fault! Here we are in 2011 with a 46% employment rate and a 60 year low in tax revenues while the government scratches their head, wonders what the hell happened, and goes right back to showering money all over Wall Street, Israel, and the Military-Security-Industrial complex.!

White House Intensifies Military Buildup In Poland

Immediately on the heels of reports in the Guardian and other Western news media that the U.S.-led North Atlantic Treaty Organization has crafted a strategy to intervene with nine army divisions in the Baltic Sea area, President Barack Obama met with his Polish counterpart Bronislaw Komorowski at the White House and confirmed plans to increase U.S. military hardware and troops in the latter’s country.

The two heads of state agreed on expanding bilateral military relations "in the spirit of the 2008 U.S.-Polish Declaration on Strategic Cooperation," [1] including the stationing of 16 U.S. F-16 jet fighters and four C-130 Hercules military transport planes on Polish air bases beginning in 2013.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Russia cannot possibly be pleased with these developments, and these actions on the ground by the US in Poland cannot be interpreted as peaceful toward Russia.

Crisis of the European Monetary System: The Euro Zone is on the Edge of Collapse

The bailout packages arranged for Greece and Ireland are not to bail out those two countries, but to bail out the European banks that lent to them and bought their bonds when it was imprudent to do so. The IMF has its nose under the blanket. It will lend and participate, so that it can serve its masters by keeping these wayward states completely in austerity and bondage for the next 50 years and in that process relieve them of their sovereignty. As all of Europe belatedly understands, one interest rate can never fit all.

Italian cuts spark fight at the opera for La Scala

Scuffles have erupted outside Italy's famous La Scala opera house in Milan during a protest against proposed funding cuts to the arts and education.

Opera house workers from across Italy were rallying peacefully ahead of a protest speech by conductor Daniel Barenboim when trouble broke out.

Students clashed with police wielding truncheons and using teargas, and 14 officers suffered minor injuries.

The audience inside applauded Barenboim for his impassioned defence of culture.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

The globalists wanted global government and global economy, and to get it, they needed global poverty. But now the plan is understood by the people of the world, and the plotters may just have set the stage for a truly global revolution.

Every half century or so, it seems the world is cursed with a few individuals who want to stand atop a pyramid built to their own glory and scream how they are the rulers of the world, and that no sacrifice of other peoples' lives and money is too great a price to pay for the attainment of that dream. It is happening again right now with a clique of sociopaths who want to bring about a global government through lies, deceptions, and enforced mass poverty, because they believe that whatever gods they sacrifice to want the world to be that way. Such true believers will never admit they are wrong, indeed history shows they cannot ever admit they are wrong, and the long train of revolutions stretching back to the dawn of time illustrates just what happens when such fanatical self-indulgence meets the real world.

Cantona's call for run on the banks causes French alarm

FRENCH ministers and bankers have issued warnings that an appeal by Eric Cantona, the former Manchester United footballer, for people to withdraw all their money from banks could propel France into economic chaos.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

It is already in chaos, because a private central bank issuing the public currency at interest is a pyramid scheme that eventually must collapse. The chaos we see is not the fault of the people, who have an inherent right to withdraw their money from the banks any time they wish. The chaos is the fault of the bankers who profit from the pyramid, then when it collapses, demand the people pay for the bankers' failure.

Banks are really what this is about; it's the reason for the Irish bailout and bilateral assistance from the UK (and non Eurozone countries Sweden and Denmark, who have also chipped in).

But in doing this, the citizens are to suffer; society can crumble, but the banks must be steadfast. “The purpose of the external financial support is to return our economy to sustainable growth and to ensure that we have a properly functioning healthy banking system”, an Irish government statement read. They made the choice; of the total bailout fund, €35 billion will go towards bank recapitalisation.

Several investigative journalists believe that the attacks were an inside job planned by the FBI and perpetrated by Israel or elements connected to Mossad. Former Italian President Francesco Cossiga has categorically expressed that the 9/11 attacks were a joint operation of FBI and Mossad. General Hamid Gul, the former head of Pakistan’s Intelligence Service believes that Israel was behind the attacks, too. What’s your estimation of these theories, their veracity and reliability? Is it demonstrable that the 9/11 attacks were a false flag operation or an inside job?

According to Duff, “America’s most vital Cold War defence information, nuclear technology, air defence systems, classified weapons and even NATO defence plans in case of a Soviet invasion of Western Europe, all went to Russia as part of an arrangement between the Soviets and Israel. Pollard is doing life in prison for this.”

Some international lawyers who have worked on international tribunals, are familiar with Rules of Procedures at the ICJ and the ICC and are following the STL are increasingly concluding that there will not be a Trial.

WIKILEAKS SHOCKER: Did Abbas know in advance about the devastating blitz on his countrymen in Gaza?

By Stuart Littlewood

One of the most grotesque Wikileaks revelations so far is the disclosure that Palestinian top dog (Fatah section), Mahmoud Abbas, was told in advance about the murderous assault on his countrymen in Gaza two years ago.

Some claim that the Wikileaks reye-openers are a ‘dirty tricks’ operation by people with a large axe to grind. It is certainly odd that ‘evidence’ is selected to portray Arab states as eager to see Iran zapped for an unproven nuclear threat when, actually, the Middle East is far more anxious about the very real and present nuclear threat from Israel.

Breaking up the euro area
How to resign from the club
The barriers to leaving are high but could still be crawled over by a country determined to leave

The idea of breaking up the currency zone raises at least three questions. First, why would a country choose to leave? Second, how would a country manage the switch to a new currency? Third—and perhaps most important—would leavers be better off outside the euro than inside it?

The main reason why a country might choose to leave the euro is to regain the monetary independence it sacrificed on joining and to set monetary policy to suit its own economic conditions.

British banks borrowed more than $1 trillion (£640bn) from the Federal Reserve during the financial crisis, led by Barclays following its swoop on the US business of Lehman Brothers.

The disclosures came because the Dodd-Frank Wall Street Reform Act forced the Fed to reveal which banks and companies it lent money to in an effort to shore up the financial system from the end of December 2007 onwards.

Economic Hitmen Strike Again: Spain Planning to Privatize Airports

MADRID -(Dow Jones)- The Spanish government plans to privatize the country's top two airports, as part of a series of measures seeking to jumpstart anemic economic growth, Prime Minister Jose Luis Rodriguez Zapatero said Wednesday.

Zapatero told legislators in Parliament that Madrid's Barajas and Barcelona's El Prat airports will be run by private operators under a licensing, or concession system. Both airports have been recently remodeled and expanded to absorb increased passenger traffic in coming years.

THE UNITED STATES HAS LONG SUPPORTED BRUTAL REGIMES AROUND THE WORLD: PROF. ROBERT JENSEN

There is nothing unusual about the U.S. government backing nations that engage in crimes and abuses of power; the United States has long supported corrupt and brutal regimes around the world. U.S. policymakers don’t make decisions based on humanitarian grounds. They want to extend and deepen, or at least maintain U.S. power, and those policymakers believe Israel is useful in that regard......Prof. Robert Jensen

Kiruna, Northern Sweden: The Town That Moved

Kiruna: The Town That Moved

This January, Sweden's northernmost town of Kiruna, 145 kilometres (90 USA Miles) into the Artic Circle has decided to move itself 4km in order to save itself from sinking into cracks created by the worlds largest iron ore mine. Kiruna grew thanks to the mine but the industry that created the town threatened to eventually consume it.

Most houses in the affected area will be loaded onto large trailers and driven to a new location nearby.
Moving the city hall, however, may require more effort.

Europe Falls Toward Enlightenment?

Conclusion: Is history in fact repeating itself? Is it retracing, in a sense, the events to which the Gutenberg press seems to have given rise: the Renaissance, the Reformation and even the populating of the New World? In Iceland, they are writing that tortured country's first constitution; we have a feeling it will be far more radical than the one the EU tried (and failed) to pass. In Britain, Ireland and Greece, students and union workers take to the streets to show their dissatisfaction with the "austerity" that the Euro-elites are trying with increasing desperation to establish.

THOUGHTS ON GERMANY AND PALESTINE

In visiting Germany one cannot help but reflect on history. The thoughts are transported to periods before I was born, periods in history and facts I have read and verified and contrast it with myths that are taught daily to unsuspecting publics. Germany lives in the modern presence but the mist of a heavy and dark past moves all around sometimes getting thick and blurring visions. Some people pump such smoke trying to convince Germans and themselves that this is that mist emanating from a relevant past. We think and speak of how best to explain to Germans that guilt feelings are misdirected. How do we explain the Nazi-Zionist collaborations and the horrors that happened because of a misunderstanding of what really happened nearly seven decades ago (2).

IMF and EU Hammer Ireland: "We're all Screwed"

This is nothing but extortion. If Ireland wants to put its banks on solid footing, there's a way to do it that doesn't involve years of debt-slavery for its people. The government can underwrite the banks with a €10 billion loan from the Pension Reserve Fund that will guarantee deposits while the banks are nationalized and restructured. It is an excruciating process, but it's been done many times before. Ireland does not have to accept indentured servitude if it chooses not to.

And why would the government even consider paying an interest rate of 5.8% per annum? Interest rates should be the same as they are for the banks; 1 percent. Should a sovereign nation get a worse interest rate than a crooked banker who ripped off millions of investors?

Belgium's political drama has largely sailed under investor radar screens. But this fractious country of 10.8 million known for its Flemish painters, waffles, French fries and beer, potentially faces a profound political crisis that could see an end to the unified state, something which has substantial implications for the management of its debt. It tends to be forgotten, but Belgium has one of the higher levels of debt to gross domestic product in the EU with French banks having the largest exposure.

If you think that leaving the EU would be catastrophic, take a look at Greenland. By rights its people ought to be poor. Their island is isolated, suffers from freezing weather, has a workforce of only 28,000 and relies on fish for 82 per cent of its exports. But it turns out that since leaving the EU, Greenland has been so freed of EU red tape and of the destruction of the Common Fisheries Policy, that the average income of the islanders today is higher than those living in Britain, Germany and France.

Portugal reaching critical point as leading economist 'Dr Doom' claims country is increasingly likely to need bailout

Portugal is increasingly likely to need an international bailout like Ireland, it was claimed today.

U.S. economist Nouriel Roubini won notoriety for warning of an impending credit crisis before 2007.

And today, in an interview in the Portuguese business daily Diario Economico, Roubini, othwerwise known as Dr Doom, said the country was reaching ‘critical point’.

He said both Ireland and Greece at first insisted that they needed no international bailout but finally as market conditions worsened were forced to turn to the European Union and the International Monetary Fund.

If Ireland Doesn’t Take The Bailout . . .

—however . . . However, in those seven days in between, a serious shitstorm broke out in Ireland—it has been one hell of a week, over there in the Emerald Isle.

And though the bailout has been approved by the EU finance drones, we still do not have an approval from the most important player of them all:

How secure is your cash in Irish banks

The economic crisis in Ireland is causing near-panic among the 2.3 million British savers who have billions of pounds on deposit in bonds and accounts with the country's banks. Protection schemes are in place, but concerns are growing over whether the Irish scheme would have sufficient cash to pay out in the event of a bank default.

Even if it does, some experts believe savers should not be taking risks, especially if better rates can be found elsewhere with traditional British banks and building societies.

It now looks likely Bank of Ireland and Allied Irish Bank will be part or fully nationalised. Anglo Irish was nationalised in September after its collapse. It is expected Allied will be fully nationalised with Dublin taking an 85 per cent stake in Bank of Ireland. This should mean a default is unlikely but the guarantee is only as strong as the Irish government itself.
With fears that the crisis may spread to Portugal and even Spain, savers in other foreign-owned banks are being urged to consider moving their money to safer organisation

Protesters hit Italian streets a 2nd day

Students and teachers opposed to government reforms took to the streets for a second day Thursday, staging protests in cities across Italy, authorities said.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

The so-called "Clash of civilizations" is really a clash of banking systems, with the private central bank model attempting to impose itself on the rest of the world as it already did the United States and Eurozone. The bankers figured this would be easy since they were able to fool the public into helping them try to force Germany back into using the imposed central banking system of the Wiemar Republic.

Of course, it took a World War for the bankers to succeed in getting Germany off a state-issued currency. But then no number of other peoples' lives are too great a price to pay to ensure a cascade of debt created with nothing more costly than ink and paper. Apparently, the bankers are ready to play that same dirty trick again, this time against China.

However, while the media might have succeeded in concealing the true reasons for WW2 and the assassinations of Presidents Lincoln and Kennedy from the American people, the situation is decidedly different today. Time makes ancient truth uncouth, and it will be impossible for the bankers to talk the planet into a new world war to force the private central bank model on the rest of the world, when the people of the US and Eurozone understand clearly that it is that very same private central bank model that has impoverished the general population to enrich themselves; that is it that same predatory private central bank model that is the enemy of all the people of the world!

In daring greatly to bring about a global government to enforce a global private bank, it appears they may have triggered a truly global revolution against all private banks!

Iceland Is No Ireland as State Free of Bank Debt, Grimsson Says

Iceland’s President Olafur R. Grimsson said his country is better off than Ireland thanks to the government’s decision to allow the banks to fail two years ago and because the krona could be devalued.

“The difference is that in Iceland we allowed the banks to fail,” Grimsson said in an interview with Bloomberg Television’s Mark Barton today. “These were private banks and we didn’t pump money into them in order to keep them going; the state did not shoulder the responsibility of the failed private banks.”

German Source: The Karlsruhe Court Decision Is a Ticking Time Bomb

A well-informed and reliable source told EIR yesterday, that the European Financial Stabilization Facility (EFSF) in Luxembourg is presently working intensely to raise funds on the financial markets using the state guarantee, which according to him is legally questionable. The head of the EFSF, Klaus Regling, also is using the interest differential among countries, which would be cynical, to say the least.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

The Euro, like the Dollar, is a debt-based currency printed up by the central bank and loaned to the people for use at interest. As long as larger pools of borrowers can be found, the Euro, like the Dollar, can perpetuate along, transferring the accumulating debt onto future generations. But when a generation is reached unable or unwilling to pay that accumulated debt, the whole pyramid collapses. which is what has happened here. The downfall of the push for a global economy is that the bankers created a global depression. More globalism will not repair the damage.

HOW ISRAEL AND THE US HOPE TO DESTROY HEZBOLLAH

One congressional staffer advised: “Don’t you see, the Special Tribunal for Lebanon is the perfect international law instrument to destroy Hezbollah, achieve regime change in Syria, create deadly Sunni-Shia conflicts everywhere, cause civil a war in Lebanon and topple the Mullahs in Iran. It’s going to be like Cheney never left office.”

NATO missile shield must not be aimed at Iran: Turkey

ANKARA — A planned Europe-wide ballistic missile shield for NATO must not be aimed at Iran and there appears to be agreement on this point, Turkish President Abdullah Gul said Friday before leaving to attend the NATO summit in Lisbon.

"We are categorically opposed to have a country named (as a threat) and our request appears to have been accepted," he told reporters before leaving Ankara.

"Turkey cannot join a project that is aimed at a specific country," Gul said, stressing that NATO was a defensive alliance aimed at defending its members against any ballistic threat and is not an organization designed "to intimidate and threaten."

Greek rescue frays as Irish crisis drags on

http://www.telegraph.co.uk/finance/economics/8138739/Greek-rescue-fray...

The eurozone bail-out for Greece has begun to unravel after Austria suspended aid contributions over failure to comply with the rescue terms, and Germany warned Athens that its patience was running out.

The clash caught markets off-guard and heightened fears that Europe's debt crisis may be escalating, with deep confusion over the Irish crisis as Dublin continues to resist EU pressure to request its own rescue.

Olli Rehn, the EU economics commissioner, said escalating rhetoric in Europe was turning dangerous. "I want to call on every responsible European to resist the centrifugal tendencies and existential alarmism."

The horrible truth starts to dawn on Europe's leaders

http://blogs.telegraph.co.uk/finance/ambroseevans-pritchard/100008667/...

The entire European Project is now at risk of disintegration, with strategic and economic consequences that are very hard to predict.

In a speech this morning, EU President Herman Van Rompuy (poet, and writer of Japanese and Latin verse) warned that if Europe’s leaders mishandle the current crisis and allow the eurozone to break up, they will destroy the European Union itself.

“We’re in a survival crisis. We all have to work together in order to survive with the euro zone, because if we don’t survive with the euro zone we will not survive with the European Union,” he said.

Europe stumbles blindly towards its 1931 moment

http://www.telegraph.co.uk/finance/comment/ambroseevans_pritchard/8132...

Unless the ECB takes fast and dramatic action, it risks destroying the currency it is paid to manage, and allowing a political catastrophe to unfold in Europe.

If mishandled, Ireland could all too easily become a sovereign version of Credit Anstalt - the Austrian bank that brought down the central European financial system in 1931, sent tremors through London and New York, and set off the second deeper phase of the Great Depression, the phase when politics turned ugly.

Is Europe Coming Apart Faster Than Anticipated?

The sky is black with PIIGS coming home to roost: I was going to write my customary long and boring think piece—but the simmering crisis in the Eurozone just got the heat turned up: Things are boiling over there!

So let’s take a break from our regularly scheduled programming, and give you a run-down of this late-breaking news:

The bond markets have no faith in Ireland—Greece has been shown up as having lied again about its atrocious fiscal situation—and now Portugal is teetering—

—in other words, the PIIGS are screwed. I would venture to guess that we are about to see this slow-boiling European crisis bubble over into a full blown meltdown over the next few days—and it’s going to get messy.

EU says survival at risk as ministers face Irish crisis

The European Union raised the stakes over the Irish debt crisis on Tuesday, saying the future of the eurozone and EU are at risk as ministers head for talks on an increasingly probable rescue.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

"Probable Rescue" = Sink the European pe3ople further into debt-slavery!

The central bank system is designed to fail. It is, as I have said before, a boat with ten holes and only five corks, and the only thing the leaders of the nations enslaved by such a system can do is yank a cork from one hole and pound it into another in front of the press cameras while proclaiming they are doing something about the problem.

This is not rocket science, and I wonder why the people of the world cannot see the simplicity of the trap or the ease of the final solution.

The global economy is a boat with ten holes in the bottom and only 5 corks, and all the world's leaders can do is yank out a cork and pound it into a different hole in front of the press cameras and insist they are doing something about the problem!

GORDON DUFF: DEAR GERALDO RIVERA, 9/11 MURDER IS NOT A JOKE

BUILDINGWHAT.ORG IS ABOUT HONOR AND JUSTICE

This week, Geraldo Rivera was foiled in his attempt to “contain” the 9/11 movement, something exploding around the world. A Herald Sun poll in Australia the week before, 10,000 respondents, showed 78% support for 9/11 being an “inside job.” A reasonable estimate for Americans is likely to approach the same figure.

Fox News now “owns” 9/11 as much as they own Glen Beck. First, Judge Napolitano “outed” the phony investigation now Geraldo Rivera has taken a strong stand on the (www.buildingwhat.org) Building 7 demolition issue. If you put both shows together, they lead to the most frightening coverup in modern history and a clear evidentiary trail, one Fox News has exposed. Why, then, is the door opened and then closed again?

Growing signs of renewed debt crisis in Europe

There are growing signs of a renewed debt crisis in a number of European nations, as bond yields soar to record highs and the continent’s economic growth stagnates.

The heads of leading European countries took the exceptional step of using the Group of 20 meeting in Seoul to announce that the European Union had confidence in the measures undertaken by Irish leaders to address the nation’s budget deficit. At the same time, the leaders of Germany, France, Italy and the United Kingdom issued a statement declaring that the EU had no plans for an additional bailout of European nations until at least 2013.

‘ROAD TO HOPE’ CONVOY TO GAZA MEMBERS KIDNAPPED

Greek Commandos board Strofades IV in Greek Waters

The Road to Hope humanitarian aid convoy left London on the 10th of October with £500,000 of medical aid for the besieged people of the Gaza Strip. After travelling 4,500 miles through the UK, France, Spain, Morocco, Algeria, Tunisia and Libya the convoy stalled at the Egyptian border on October 26th due to an Egyptian refusal to allow land access to Gaza. As a result the convoy leaders had little choice but to secure a ship at significant extra expense and delay.

Obama is president of extra-judicial killing, says ex-Guantánamo inmate

US PRESIDENT Barack Obama’s attempts to reach out to Muslims have been an "utter failure" given his broken promises on several issues including closing Guantánamo Bay detention facility, former inmate Moazzam Begg has said.

Begg, whose organisation, Cageprisoners, recently expanded its work to include the highlighting of extra-judicial killings, particularly the use of drone strikes, argued little had changed despite Obama’s promises. "We say that Bush was the president of torture, but Obama is the president of extra-judicial killing.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

The issue of US extrajudicial assassination, now being heard by the US Supreme Court, puts the entire American concept of judicial due process at extreme risk.

If the Supreme Court sides with the administration, it will then be open season on anyone who even has the most peaceful, mildest (and logical) disagreements with the policies of this, or any subsequent, administration.

I absolutely abhor what Anwar al-Awlaki has allegedly said.

But at the same moment, I do have the faith that it is still possible that the US judicial process, fairly applied, can provide justice, even for a person like Awlaki.

This country is either a country of laws, or a country of people: it cannot be both.

WESTERN MEDIA FRIGHTENED OF THE ‘F’ WORD IN ITS ISRAELI CONTEXT

By Alan Hart — My Catbird Seat

There is a debate in Israel about whether the Zionist state is on the slippery slope to fascism or is already fascist. As far as I am aware the mainstream Western media has not drawn any attention to this:

It was Albert Einstein, the father of modern physics, who, along with 27 other most influential Jews, first warned of the danger of the rise of fascism in Israel. In a letter to the Editor of The New York Times published on 4 December 1948, when Menachem Begin was soliciting support in America, they said this:

ZIONISM: The Need For Israeli Jews To Feel Frightened –ALAN HART

BY KOUROSH ZIABARI

Kourosh Ziabari: In your recent article “Zionism and Peace are Incompatible” you reach a point where you state “if it is the case that American presidents are frightened of provoking Israel, the conclusion would have to be that the Zionist state is a monster beyond control and that all efforts for peace are doomed to failure.” Is it really the case that Israel possesses an uncontrollable, disproportionate power which enables it to violate the international law and enjoy immunity from being held accountable before the international community? What’s the source of this unwarrantable power and influence?

Police personnel from France, Croatia and Poland had joined in the biggest security operation ever mounted against protestors against the a train carrying nuclear waste to a depot in an isolated part of Lower Saxony’s countryside. Helicopters, water canons and police vehicles, including an armoured surveillance truck, accompanied an endless column of anti-riot police mounted on horses and also marching down the railway tracks into the dense woods.

Smokers in the Netherlands will now be able to light-up again in over 2000 of the country's small owner-operated bars or pubs.

The partial over-turning of the blanket ban, which was introduced in 2008, is a huge victory for for smokers' rights campaigners who had argued that the blanket ban was driving small bar owners out of business.

An incoming coalition government in the country has allowed the partial lifting of the ban for pubs which are less than 743.5 sq ft in size and which are staffed solely by the owner.

CIA lawyer: U.S. law does not forbid rendition

Daniel Pines, an assistant general counsel at the CIA, has asserted in a law journal that the abduction of terrorism suspects abroad is legal under U.S. law, even when the suspect is turned over to countries notorious for torture.

“There are virtually no legal restrictions on these types of operations,” Pines asserts in the current edition of the Loyola University Chicago Law Journal.

“Indeed, U.S. law does not even preclude the United States from rendering individuals to a third country in instances where the third country may subject the rendered individual to torture. The only restrictions that do exist under U.S. law preclude U.S. officials from themselves torturing or inflicting cruel and unusual punishment on individuals during rendition operations, or rendering individuals from a place of actual armed conflict or occupation -- all of which prove to be narrow limitations indeed,” Pines writes.

UNANSWERED QUESTIONS IN THE YEMEN TERROR SCARE

By Barry Grey (Source: Global Research)

In what has become a regular feature of American public life—especially on the eve of major elections—the airwaves were taken over Friday by breathless reports of a new terror threat. It is impossible to determine how much is fact and how much is fiction in the ever-expanding claims being made regarding two packages from Yemen allegedly containing high explosives and addressed to two synagogues in Chicago.

But the very fact that the decision was made, undoubtedly at a very high level, to give such massive media coverage to the alleged plot—before any concrete details were being reported and entirely on the basis of unsubstantiated claims made by, for the most part, anonymous officials—is sufficient reason to adopt a highly skeptical attitude.
