Easily Understood Explanation of Current Banking Crisis

Easily Understood Explanation of Current Banking Crisis

Today's banking crisis is the THIRD trillion dollar plus
US-caused financial meltdown in the last twenty years.

Each one of these crises came into being through the same basic
mechanism...the fraudulent over-valuing of financial assets by
Wall Street - with a "wink and a nod" (and sometimes a lot more)
from the White House and Congress.

The fraudulently valued assets stimulate the economy, impart
the illusion of health and then, inevitably, the fraud goes
too far and the whole house of card comes painfully crashing
back to earth.

The three trillion dollar plus frauds were:

Fraud #1: The so-called "Savings and Loan Crisis" of the late 80s

Fraud #2: The so-called "Tech Bubble" of the late 90s

Why being grumpy like Victor Meldrew is good for you, as scientists find it improves memory

OK it might not be much fun to be around grumpy people, as the long-suffering wife of Victor Meldrew would no doubt agree.

However for her co-star in One Foot In The Grave it was a good thing.

Psychologists have found that being down in the dumps made participants less gullible, improved their ability to judge others and also boosted memory.

The Kim Jong-il that Clinton met was a fake, says academic

Was it Kim Jong-il? Or was it a fake North Korean leader that entertained Bill Clinton on that mission to Pyongyang to retrieve the two imprisoned American journalists?

Ministers face rebellion over drug tsar's sacking

The government was at the centre of a furious backlash from leading scientists last night following its sacking of Britain's top drugs adviser.

The decision by the home secretary, Alan Johnson, to call on Professor David Nutt to resign as chairman of the Advisory Council on the Misuse of Drugs (ACMD) has thrown the future of the respected independent body into severe doubt. There were claims last night that many of those who sit on the 31-strong council – which advises ministers on what evidence there is of harm caused by drugs – may resign en masse, raising serious doubts about how ministers will justify policy decisions.

An orderly decline

The financial crisis has pushed the issue of the dollar’s status as the world’s reserve currency to the forefront of the market’s agenda. And as ultra-loose US fiscal and monetary policies have weighed on its value, so calls for an alternative to the US currency as the world’s numeraire have increased.

Three More Children Injected Against Parents’ Wishes

When does yet another “mistake” become a flagrant official disregard for parental rights? Another three children have been injected with the swine flu vaccine against their parents’ wishes as schools institute mass inoculation programs with little concern about consent.

A Whiff of This Should Send a Chill Up Your Spine

‘FEAR DETECTOR’ BEING DEVELOPED THAT WILL BE ABLE TO SNIFF OUT TERRORISTS

A device that smells human fear is being developed by British scientists and could soon be sniffing out anxious terrorists. The technology relies on recognising a pheromone — or scent signal — produced in sweat when a person is scared. Researchers hope the ‘fear detector’ will make it possible to identify individuals at check points who are up to no good.

Panic, little ones, it's the Carbon Monster

IF you don't reduce your carbon footprint, then puppies will drown and bunny rabbits will die. And a terrifying, jagged-toothed monster with crazy hooked hands will descend from the clouds to eat you up.

Believe it or not, that is the message being delivered by the British government to children, in a L6 million ($10.7m) advertising campaign designed to scare the next generation witless about the alleged horrors of global warming.

Osama bin Laden Responsible for the 9/11 Attacks? Where is the Evidence?

The idea that Osama bin Laden was responsible for the 9/11 attacks has been an article of faith for public officials and the mainstream media. Calling it an “article of faith” points to two features of this idea. On the one hand, no one in these circles publicly challenges this idea.

On the other hand, as I pointed out at length in two of my books – 9/11 Contradictions1 and The New Pearl Harbor Revisited,2 no good evidence has ever been publicly presented to support it.

Kucinich: Health reform legislation ‘a bailout for insurance companies’

"The removal of the Kucinich amendment constitutes yet another capitulation to the health insurance and pharmaceutical industries who are already reaping billions of dollars from the bill," reads a statement from the congressman's office on Thursday.

Under the revised public option, "Pelosi and her team have proposed a plan that would not make payments for care based on Medicare rates ..." CBS News's John Nichols noted. "Rather, under the Pelosi plan, the rates be tied to those of the big insurance companies. That's a big, big victory for the insurance industry, as it will undermine the ability of the public option to compete -- and to create pressure for reduced costs."

Webmaster's Opinion on Obama-Front Man for New World Order

Webmaster's Opinion on Obama-Front Man for New World Order

Since the creation of the CIA by Congress in 1947, the CIA grew quickly into a very powerful secret element of this government. At the end of his two terms as president, President Eisenhower warned against the increasing power of the military-industrial complex.

What President Eisenhower failed to warn against was the insidious, well hidden power of the private central bankers of the world, namely the Federal Reserve Bank and the Bank of England. Neither the Federal Reserve Bank nor the Bank of England are departments of the federal government. Each is a cartel of private banks. In fact, to the best of my knowledge, about 75% of the Federal Reserve Bank is owned by the Bank of England.

The US as Failed State

According to reports, the US Marines in Afghanistan use 800,000 gallons of gasoline per day. At $400 per gallon, that comes to a $320,000,000 daily fuel bill for the Marines alone. Only a country totally out of control would squander resources in this way.

...

In any failed state, the greatest threat to the population comes from the government and the police. That is certainly the situation today in the USA. Americans have no greater enemy than their own government. Washington is controlled by interest groups that enrich themselves at the expense of the American people.

The one percent that comprise the superrich are laughing as they say, “let them eat cake.”

Warmists turn up the heat ahead of the Copenhagen climate conference

When historians look back at the much-touted Copenhagen "climate conference" of December 2009, they may be unable to resist a wry smile at all the last-minute efforts made to keep warmist hysteria at fever pitch.

Inevitably the biggest coverage last week went to Lord Stern's call for us all to save the planet by giving up meat. He presumably means that we should kill off all cows, sheep and pigs, say goodbye to wool and leather, and abandon large tracts of our countryside to brambles and bracken (and the wind turbines his lordship is also keen on).

Barack Obama is on record as advocating a military escalation in Afghanistan. Before sinking any deeper into that quagmire, we might do well to learn something about recent Afghan history and the role played by the United States.

“The Deltas are psychos…You have to be a certified psychopath to join the Delta Force…”, a US Army colonel from Fort Bragg once told me back in the 1980s. Now President Obama has elevated the most notorious of the psychopaths, General Stanley McChrystal, to head the US and NATO military command in Afghanistan.

Nasa to irradiate monkeys to study effects of long space trips on humans

If a manned mission to Mars ever takes place, the human pilots will be outside Earth’s protective magnetic field for several months, unprotected from solar radiation. Little research has been done on this sort of long-term exposure to low doses of radiation.

Rats and mice have been exposed to this sort of radiation before, but that gives only a hint of what the effects would be on humans.

Japanese scientists create 'Alien' bionic arm

The Dual-Arm Power Amplification Robot is being developed by Kyoto-based Activelink Co., a unit that is owned and financed by electronics giant Panasonic. Driven by 18 electromagnetic motors with direct force feedback, the operator can control the arm's movements, including performing delicate manoeuvres.

A team of six engineers, under Go Shirogauchi, has been working on the project since 2003 and aims to have the device, which is made of an aluminium alloy, ready to go into practical use by 2015.

Reasons to Doubt the Official Story about the 9/11 Attacks

Reasons to Doubt the Official Story about the 9/11 Attacks
The Bush Regime

by Andrew Mills

The more you study the facts and the circumstantial evidence surrounding the 9/11 attacks, the more you doubt the official explanation of the attacks given in the 9/11 Commission Report. Most all the necessary information is, or has been, available through the major media. It's just a matter of pulling it all together and organizing the data. When you do that, you are left with major doubts about the official story and you begin to suspect that some of our officials may have been involved, at least in the sense that they had fore-knowledge of the attacks and just let them happen.

How long have we watered the Tree of Deceit with the blood of patriots?

(CINCINNATI, Ohio) - In John Farmers book:The Ground Truth: The Story Behind Americas Defense on 9/11, the author builds the inescapably convincing case that the official version... is almost entirely untrue...

The 9/11 Commission now tells us that the official version of 9/11 was based on false testimony and documents and is almost entirely untrue. The details of this massive cover-up are carefully outlined in a book by John Farmer, who was the Senior Counsel for the 9/11 Commission.

Help rip the lid off the cover-up of one of the biggest child sex abuse scandals, EVER.

This by way of the Wayne Nadsen Report.
In 1991, there was a call boys scandal in the Bush White House. The CIA, Catholic charity Boys Town, and prominent Republicans, like Lawrence King, were all involved. It's a huge, creepy story, and people died in the cover up....[Nick Bryant just] published an authoritative book on this, called "The Franklin Scandal."(Trine Day, 2009).... The GOP's Lawrence King was never prosecuted for sex abuse. ....Nancy Grace has a show on CNN, and she focuses on child sex abuse. Perfect. Let's get Nick and the Franklin Scandal story on her show...
