The REAL stats: Shadowstats Hyperinflation Report (Update 2010)

repost.
Subscribe at Shadowstats.com

The U.S. economic and systemic solvency crises of the last two years are just precursors to a Great Collapse: a hyperinflationary great depression. Such will reflect a complete collapse in the purchasing power of the U.S. dollar, a collapse in the normal stream of U.S. commercial and economic activity, a collapse in the U.S. financial system as we know it, and a likely realignment of the U.S. political environment. The current U.S. financial markets, financial system and economy remain highly unstable and vulnerable to unexpected shocks.

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.

Fox Nation Punks Itself with Global Warming “News” Story

The above-referenced ironic tale of a global warming activist’s freezing to death in Antarctica was presented on the Fox Nation web site as a straightforward news story on 29 March 2010. However, the original source for the story (which is linked from the Fox site) was a 2006 article from ecoEnquirer.com, a satirical site featuring spoof articles such as “Court Orders Fisherman to Apologize to Eagle” and “Penguins ‘Fed Up’ with Media Attention.”

The Vatican Hotline Outrage

The Roman Catholic Church is the last place victims of predator priests should turn to. That, according to victims, is how the church got into this mess in the first place. And it’s why victims’ groups are outraged by a new church-sponsored hotline for victims to report alleged crimes.

“Victims should tell loved ones and police first,” said David Clohessy of the Survivors Network of those Abused by Priests, known as SNAP. “Calling the church should be a last resort.”

CLIMATEGATE - Carbon Emissionaries

In 2005, the European Union (EU) put into place a carbon trading scheme. Prices for carbon permits promptly plunged, and have remained depressed since then. The price for a permit to emit a tonne of CO2 went from 21.59 Euros in 2005, to 17.28 in 2006, to 0.68 in 2007, to 2.16 in 2008, to 13.03 in 2009. Today, however, you will be glad to know that some academics declared the scheme a resounding success …

Law firm implicates Vatican, Pope in abuse case

A South Florida law firm is implicating the Vatican and Pope Benedict XVI in its handling of a priest accused of sexually abusing children.

Alleged victim's lawyers: Vatican protected priest

Lawyers representing an alleged victim of sex abuse claim the Vatican instructed church officials in Florida to shelter a priest from Cuba who was later accused of pedophilia.

Attorney Jessica Arbour, who represents an alleged victim of the Rev. Ernesto Garcia-Rubio, released a 1968 letter from the Vatican to the Archdiocese of Miami, stating the cleric had been forced to leave Cuba "because of serious difficulties of a moral nature (homosexuality)."

Arbour contends that the wording of the letter was used at the time as code for pedophilia, though archdiocese officials disputed that.

Furthermore, this Chairwoman of the US House appropriations subcommittee on foreign operations even offers advice to Israeli Prime Minister Netanyahu on how to negotiate Israeli building “rights” on occupied Palestinian territories with America’s President without “giving away the store”. Oh, and Lowey also sits on the House Intelligence and Homeland Security committees.

Neb. Lawmakers Approve Taxpayer 'Wall of Shame'

Taxpayers in Nebraska risk having their names posted on a wall of shame if they don't pay state government what they owe.

Lawmakers on Tuesday gave final approval to a bill (LB879) that would allow the state to post on Web sites the names of taxpayers owing the state more than $20,000.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

My sincere thanks to Nebraska for collecting together in one place all the names of people quite likely to be willing to join the revolution in that state! You have just solved a major recruiting problem! :)

Petrarch vs. Pope Clement VI –

After being evicted from Rome, Pope Clement V (1305-1314) and the entire Christian bureaucracy fled to Avignon, France. Francesco Petrarch, one of Italy’s most famous scholars, lived on the outskirts of Avignon for several years. At some point he set to intentionally observe and record the papal lifestyle, and he left behind one of the most candid descriptions of the Church’s despotism ever printed. Many considered him among the greatest intellectual writers of the age and he was esteemed by nobility throughout Europe, so his rebukes carried weight and had an impact.

CLIMATEGATE: A CRIME AGAINST HUMANITY

Human Caused Global Warming is not being researched; it is being promoted. Al Gore and his fellow investors have spent over a hundred million dollars in creating a crisis of human-caused global warming out of (quite literally) thin air. They are not doing this out of the goodness of their hearts. They expect to reap billions in profits from the trading of Carbon Credits, a "license to pollute" available for a price and subject to brokerage fees. One of the people Al Gore relied on to create this scheme was Ken Lay, late of ENRON, aka the Crooked "E". Al Gore plans to use Carbon Dioxide to do to the world what Ken Lay did to California using electricity; loot the people!

Webmaster's Commentary:

For a quarter of a century, the Palestinian minority in Israel has celebrated Land Day on 30 March 30 as a protest against Israel’s discriminatory policies toward its one million Palestinian citizens and to underline its collective and individual rights. Land Day, or Yoam al-’Ard in Arabic, is also a commemoration of the bloody confrontations with state “security” forces that took place in 1976 when six Palestinians were killed and some 100 injured.

The gruesome discovery made sensational headlines in Italy, by chance drawing together two enduring elements of national life: a mysterious financial scandal and the influence of the Church.

Hamid Karzai's election decree overturned by Afghanistan parliament

Hamid Karzai's attempt to seize control of Afghanistan's electoral watchdog was overturned this morning by the country's parliament, which voted overwhelmingly to throw out a presidential order that enraged diplomats.

In what one observer described as a "sea of red cards", MPs in the lower house rejected a controversial decree by Karzai in February which unilaterally rewrote Afghan election law in advance of parliamentary poll in September.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Look for Karzai to find some way to do an end-run around the Afghan Parliament on this one.

Health Care Battle Ends; War on Social Security Begins

Drunk with success over their Health Care bill passing, the Democrats are now lusting after even greater conquests. With the celebratory hangover still aching, the Democrats lurch forward towards a hasty drive to “reform” Social Security.

The Social Security reform will no doubt resemble the health care reform, the details of which remain a mystery to most Americans. The essence of both policies will be based on one principle: reduce the debt of the United States by any means necessary.

he Arctic territories represent vast amounts of untapped natural resources and a supply route for shipping that has never before been accessible.

Canada, Russia, Norway, Denmark and the United States recently held meetings at the G-8 summit to discuss the issue that has all 5 nations up against the other. Unfortunately for Sweden, Finland and Iceland, these three countries which lay claim to the Arctic as well, were left out of the meeting. Why did the Canadians snub them?

So along comes an arrest of a group that had yet to even pick out a target, and immediately the “far left” blogs turn their focus to the “real terrorists” out there… the far right. It’s a scripted contrivance people, designed to rehabilitate the neoliberal Obama Product by comparison and to rejuvenate the far left in the phony “left verses right” paradigm.

Pedophilia in the Catholic Church: Coverup Operation at the Vatican?

Pope Benedict should do everyone a favor and resign. By hanging on, he's just making matters worse. Who does he think he's fooling anyway? Everyone knows that he was involved in the sex-scandal cover up. Does he really think that a few papal apologies will make a difference? He was in charge and knew everything that was going on. That makes him responsible. His best option now is to "man up" and face the consequences. He needs to arrange a press conference, tell the truth, and resign. End of story.

The bottom line is that people's lives have been ruined and someone has to pay.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

The current ploy of attempting to make the Pope immune from lawsuits is pathetic, and utterly irresponsible.

And the fallout?!? People are going to be defecting from the church in droves, because they understand that the abuse is a systemic, institutional problem, and they can no longer trust their kids to be in the presence of these people alone.

No, They Can't: Palestinians Can't Live and Build in West Jerusalem

Now to the facts: The truth is that West Jerusalem is effectively closed to Palestinian ownership. Why?

East Jerusalem's Arab residents are not citizens of Israel. They are permanent residents of Israel, have the right to live, work, pay taxes and receive services from the State of Israel, and even to vote for the Jerusalem municipality, but they cannot vote for the Knesset (the Israeli Parliament) and do not hold Israeli passports.

Expected Obama Administration Backing for Indonesian State Terror

The news comes ahead of Obama’s expected announcement of new military aid, falsely claiming TNI and Kopassas "no longer murder civilians." They always did and now do, according to a senior Indonesian official (unnamed for his safety), speaking out because he opposes the practice.

"TNI still practices political murder." Yet America rewards it, despite being legally bound not to and to provide Congress with relevant information.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

The US has a pathology of supporting its tinpot dictators abroad, then becoming confused when the people of those countries have had enough terror and intimidation.

New Obama Law Places ‘Soviet-Style’ Capital Controls on Americans

It’s Official – America Now Enforces Capital Controls

It couldn’t have happened to a nicer country. On March 18, with very little pomp and circumstance, president Obama passed the most recent stimulus act, the $17.5 billion Hiring Incentives to Restore Employment Act (H.R. 2487), brilliantly goalseeked by the administration’s millionaire cronies to abbreviate as HIRE. As it was merely the latest in an endless stream of acts destined to expand the government payroll to infinity, nobody cared about it, or actually read it.

Peter Schiff: 'Very good reason' to believe home prices will collapse

If the Administration had allowed losses to fall where they rightfully belong, namely on those who foolishly loaded up on toxic mortgage bonds, then the housing market would have already found its true clearing level. Instead, every measure is working to prolong and delay the ultimate reckoning, while setting up taxpayers as the patsy. Given the horrendous government deficit projections for the next several years, any losses incurred by the government mortgage portfolio may add a critical stress on America's fiscal viability.

Speeding 'cushion' may dwindle due to recession

The recession may be claiming a new victim: the 5-10-mph "cushion" police and state troopers across the USA have routinely given motorists exceeding the speed limit.

As cities and states scramble to fill budget gaps with revenue from traffic citations, "not only are the (speeding) tolerances much lower, but the frequency of a warning instead of a ticket is way down," says James Baxter, president of the National Motorists Association, a Wisconsin-based drivers' rights group that helps its members fight speeding tickets.

UN to shut Pakistan offices over Bhutto report

All UN offices in Pakistan will close for three days from Wednesday as a security precaution with the world body set to release a report on the assassination of ex-premier Benazir Bhutto.

Bhutto, the first woman to become prime minister of a Muslim country, was killed on December 27, 2007 in a gun and suicide attack after addressing an election rally in Rawalpindi, a garrison city near the capital Islamabad.

For the UN to take such extraordinary precautions as closing all of its offices in Pakistan means that this report is most likely to be quite incendiary.

Father Poole has never been convicted of a crime, but the Jesuits have settled numerous sex-abuse claims against him since 2005, in excess of $5 million, according to an attorney involved in four of those five lawsuits. Exact figures aren't available because some of the settlements involve confidentiality agreements. The Jesuits have never let a single case against Father Poole go to trial.

'Hedge Fund' Took Them for $8M, Family Says

A family says three men ran a bogus hedge fund that cheated them of $8 million. They say the Black Card Group may never have existed at all, that if it did exist it's in default, and that its directors, Ethan Conrad, Frank Sim and Harrold Pressly, spent their money on luxury vehicles and resort property.

Five members of the Urata family say Conrad told them that "the real estate market was getting soft, that he had formed a hedge fund that was earning 3 percent a month and that Charles Urata should put his money in the fund instead of real estate." He told Urata that he had put his own money into the fund, which "was exclusive ... was available just for friends ... [and] that it was a 'no brainer'; that it was really safe."

Pacified Populations

If the U.S. public looked long and hard into a mirror reflecting the civilian atrocities that have occurred in Afghanistan over the past 10 months, we would see ourselves as people who have collaborated with and paid for war crimes committed against innocent civilians who meant us no harm.

Two reporters, Jerome Starkey of the Times UK and David Lindorff of Counterpunch.org, have persistently drawn attention to U.S. war crimes committed in Afghanistan. Makers of the film Rethink Afghanistan have steadily provided updates about the suffering endured by Afghan civilians. Here is a short list of atrocities that have occurred in the months since Gen. McChrystal assumed his post in Afghanistan.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

The people of Afghanistan do not "...hate us for our freedoms"; they hate us because we are murdering their wives, husbands, brothers, and sisters.

The invasion and occupation of Afghanistan was to have brought about two outcomes, one of which has already been accomplished, and that was control over the drug trade, from which so many profit so handsomely.

The second was "pacifying" the Afghan people to the point where pipelines could be installed with which to control Eurasian oil.
That goal, nearly nine years on, has yet to be achieved, and may well never be achieved.

If the US Pentagon and state department employed people with any degree of intelligence whatsoever, they should have the US declare victory, go home, and negotiate with whatever government is left standing in Kabul. Please remember; as late as August of 2001, the Bush administration was negotiating with the Taliban regarding the pipeline rights, but felt that the Taliban's offer was "too high".

Apparently, the price of our kid's lives claimed in the invasion and occupation of Afghanistan was "cheaper" for both the Bush, and now the Obama administration.

Blood in the Vatican: A Fresh look at the Swiss Guard Murders

But the following year rumours began to leak out that there was more to this than met the eye. Had Estermann been a spy in the Vatican for the Stasi, the East German secret police before the collapse of Communism? Certainly such espionage went on in both camps. Was Estermann a sodomite? Was there a third gunman? The Vatican stuck to its version and denied the infuriated Italian police access on grounds that the Vatican was extra-territorial. A copy of the lengthy Vatican Bolletino 55/99 released on the 8th February 1999 lies before the author and stands firm for the “fit of madness” explanation.

Fox Nation Punks Itself with Global Warming “News” Story

Jeeze, Fox Nation ran this story yesterday, and I’ve yet to see any other outlet pick it up. You would think that a thing like this would have been more widely reported…

Famed global warming activist James Schneider and a journalist friend were both found frozen to death on Saturday, about 90 miles from South Pole Station, by the pilot of a ski plane practicing emergency evacuation procedures.

Oh, wow. That’s really sad to hear. Thank you, Fox Nation, for bringing this sorrowful and somewhat suspiciously ironic story to light. But what was this famous activist whom I’ve never heard of doing down there in the first place?

"Irish Catholics are in a dysfunctional relationship with an abusive organization. The pope must take responsibility for the actions of his subordinates. If Catholic priests are abusing children, it is Rome, not Dublin, that must answer for it with a full confession and a criminal investigation. Until it does, all good Catholics... should avoid Mass. In Ireland, it is time we separated our God from our religion, and our faith from its alleged leaders."

“Our President Is Deceiving the American Public”

"Well, for years now, really since we set out to go into Iraq on much the same kinds of lies in 2002 that sent us into Vietnam when I was in the Pentagon, since then, I’ve been saying to officials in the government, “Don’t do what I did. Do what I wish I had done in ’63 or ’64, before we had entered the war, before the bombs had fallen. Don’t wait, as I did, ’til we were in the war and the war was essentially unstoppable, before telling the truth about the hopelessness, understood within the government, and the impossibility—the unlikelihood of any kind of victory there. But do it now.”

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Iraq is a basket case, and we are losing in Afghanistan.

The only question is when the "Saigon Moment" will come in the history of the US occupation of Afghanistan, and how much more blood and treasure will be spent before this illegal and immoral war has finished.

The next war we must stop before it starts is a war against Iran.

Because if this war begins, I wouldn't bet against Russia and China joining the fray in behalf of Iran; and Russia and China do have nuclear weapons.

Massachusetts Court Stops H&R Block, Option One Foreclosures

People unfairly lured into a subprime mortgage shouldn't lose their homes to foreclosure. That's the ruling of a Massachusetts Appeals Court, in affirming an injunction blocking Option One Mortgage Corporation and H&R Block Mortgage Corporation from initiating foreclosure proceedings.

The preliminary injunction prohibits the two firms from initiating or advancing foreclosures on mortgage loans that the court found to be "presumptively unfair." Under the order, which affects up to 9,700 Massachusetts loans originated by Option One, AHMSI must give the Massachusetts Attorney General's Office advance notice before it intends to foreclose on any such loan, and if the Attorney General objects, obtain approval from the Court before foreclosing on a loan.

"The Ethical Council recommended that Elbit Systems Ltd should be excluded from each portfolio because it deems that the company can be linked to violations of fundamental conventions and norms," it said in a statement.

Bishop says 'vast' tally of sexual abuse yet to emerge

THE Catholic Church has a turbulent future as probably a much smaller church in the West, with a ''vast amount'' of sexual abuse cases yet to emerge, according to a retired Australian bishop.

There is a Democrat president extremely interested in government-run health care.

For Years, Deaf Boys Tried to Tell of Priest’s Abuse

They told other priests. They told three archbishops of Milwaukee. They told two police departments and the district attorney. They used sign language, written affidavits and graphic gestures to show what exactly Father Murphy had done to them. But their reports fell on the deaf ears of hearing people.

This week, they learned that Cardinal Joseph Ratzinger, now Pope Benedict XVI, received letters about Father Murphy in 1996 from Archbishop Rembert G. Weakland of Milwaukee, who said that the deaf community needed “a healing response from the Church.” The Vatican sat on the case, then equivocated, and when Father Murphy died in 1998, he died a priest.

Hundreds of cases of clerical abuse reported

There have been 566 reports of various kinds of abuse by clergy at the Catholic Church’s ombudsman’s offices this year, it was reported today (Tues).

Vienna archdiocese has had the highest number, 174, followed by Innsbruck diocese with 115. More than half of them can no longer be prosecuted because of the statute of limitations.

Cases of sexual abuse constitute 27 per cent of these, cases of violence 26 per cent. More than half of them require further investigation, according to the media.

Credibility gap: Pope needs to answer questions

The Holy Father needs to directly answer questions, in a credible forum, about his role -- as archbishop of Munich (1977-82), as prefect of the Congregation for the Doctrine of the Faith (1982-2005), and as pope (2005-present) -- in the mismanagement of the clergy sex abuse crisis.

We urge this not primarily as journalists seeking a story, but as Catholics who appreciate that extraordinary circumstances require an extraordinary response. Nothing less than a full, personal and public accounting will begin to address the crisis that is engulfing the worldwide church. It is that serious.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

The church is finished. There is no inquiry, no apology, no penitence that will erase the memory of what was done and how it was covered up, and both crime and cover-up are inconsistent with the professed existence of an all-powerful and all-knowing God who cares about the members of the church.

No matter how you try to spin and rationalize it, the prayers of all those parents to that God that their children should be safe from harm went unanswered. Ignored. Unheard. And if prayer has no effect on the universe, why pray? Why indeed go to church at all? If you want your children kept safe from harm quit wasting your time praying and keep the kids at home!

Afghanistan as a Drug War

Since Afghanistan now grows the opium poppies that provide more than 90% of the world’s opium, the raw material for the production of heroin, it’s not surprising that drug-trade news and war news intersect from time to time. More surprising is how seldom poppy growing and the drug trade are portrayed as anything but ancillary to our Afghan War. Fortunately, TomDispatch regular Alfred McCoy has been focused on the drug trade -- and the American role in fostering it -- in Southeast, Central, and South Asia for a long time.

Shahram Amiri Defects To US: Missing Iranian Nuclear Scientist Helping CIA, Reports ABC News

An Iranian nuclear scientist who had been reported missing since last summer has defected to the U.S. and is assisting the CIA in its efforts to undermine Iran's nuclear program, ABC News reported Tuesday.

Amiri has been extensively debriefed since his defection, according to the report, and has helped to confirm U.S. intelligence assessments about the Iranian nuclear program.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

How brilliantly "on cue" is the revelation of this defection, even though the event happened some time ago, coming on the heels of Obama saying yesterday that he was looking to have sanctions in place "within weeks."

In the Lam(e)ass Media today we find the headline saying that Climate Data was not manipulated. The British had an inquiry which, “largely cleared the scientists”. Here’s my favorite quote from the article-

“One that attracted particular media attention was Jones' reference to a "trick" that could be used to "hide the decline" of temperatures.”Hide the decline" was not an attempt to conceal data but was scientific shorthand for discarding erroneous data, the committee concluded. Similarly, Jones intended "trick" to mean a neat way of handling evidence, rather than anything underhanded, the inquiry found.” Isn’t that special?

Vatican offers 3 reasons it's not liable for abuse

Dragged deeper than ever into the clerical sex abuse scandal, the Vatican is launching a legal defense that it hopes will shield the pope from a lawsuit in Kentucky seeking to have him answer attorneys' questions under oath.

Court documents obtained Tuesday by The Associated Press show that Vatican lawyers plan to argue that the pope has immunity as head of state, that American bishops who oversaw abusive priests weren't employees of the Vatican, and that a 1962 document is not the "smoking gun" that provides proof of a cover-up.

Student Loans: The Government Is Now Officially in the Banking Business

On March 30, 2010, President Obama signed the reconciliation "fix" to the health care reform bill passed by Congress last week, which includes student loan legislation called by the President "one of the most significant investments in higher education since the G.I. Bill." Under the Student Aid and Fiscal Responsibility Act (SAFRA), the federal government will lend directly to students, ending billions of dollars in wasteful subsidies to firms providing student loans. The bill will save an estimated $68 billion over 11 years.

But what Congress did was establish an individual mandate that every citizen must buy health insurance as a condition of citizenship. This is an unprecedented abuse of power in the 221-year history of our precious Constitution.

Nor, for that matter, can Congress claim that it is using its power to regulate interstate commerce to justify this new law. Commerce is the buying and selling of goods and services. But what this strange law does is claim that anyone who chooses NOT to buy a good or service (namely, health insurance) is breaking the law. This is not regulation of interstate commerce, but dictatorship.

We haven’t got the physics worked out yet. One of the chiefs once said to me that he agreed that they should include the biology in their models, but he said they hadn’t got the physics right yet and it would be five years before they do. So why on earth are the politicians spending a fortune of our money when we can least afford it on doing things to prevent events 50 years from now?

Geier said when he told Murphy what was happening was wrong, the priest replied, "Oh, yes. God sent me. This is confession."

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Whereupon Canada informed Hillary that they will bring their troops home from Afghanistan!
