Yesterday Gov. Rod Blagojevich Attacked Bank of America, Today the Bush DOJ Makes Him Disappear

I do not care what the Illinois Governor did or how much sun shine's out of Fitz's ass. Someone in the the DOJ and someone even higher up in the Bush administration gave the prosecutor the green light to arrest Gov. Rod Blagojevich today because yesterday the Democratic governor dared to fuck with one of the high holies of the Republican business community, a company that had recently been anointed with $25 billion blessed tax payers' dollars--- Bank of America .

And no one in the United States messes with Big Business and lives to tell about it.

The Silent Winter of Escalation

Sunday morning, before dawn, I read in the New York Times that "the Pentagon is planning to add more than 20,000 troops to Afghanistan" within the next 18 months – "raising American force levels to about 58,000" in that country. Then I scraped ice off a windshield and drove to the C-SPAN studios, where a picture window showed a serene daybreak over the Capitol dome.

While I was on C-SPAN's Washington Journal for a live interview, the program aired some rarely seen footage with the voices of two courageous politicians who challenged the warfare state.

Obama Standing at a Fork in the Road: Will He Choose Wisely?

Now is the time that the U.S. must start SAVING money instead of spending even more of what it does not have. By sending another 20,000 troops to an already destroyed Afghanistan to pound it even more, maintain the troop presence in Iraq and continue to head towards a confrontation with Iran, Russia, China and Pakistan, he will be wasting hundreds of billions of dollars that could be better spent at home on the people who really need it.

Donald Trump Blames Crisis on Divine Intervention

We still need a full investigation into how Wall Street firms, asleep at the switch regulators and a passive media drove this crisis. We can't ignore compromised politicians either. A Joint Economic Committee study says: "Government Policy Blunders Largely Caused the Global Financial Crisis."

The New Capitalism

Robert Preston | BBC Business Editor | Dec 8, 2008

The contraction of the world' developed economies represents the end of an era. Taxpayers have been forced to support the banking system and the real economy on a scale we've never seen before.

For many years to come, what's happening will affect the relationship between business and government, between taxpayers and the private sector, between employers and employees, between investors and companies.

A new capitalism will emerge from the rubble.

The deluder in chief

We long ago gave up hope that President Bush would acknowledge his many mistakes, or show he had learned anything from them. Even then we were unprepared for the epic denial that Bush displayed in his interview with ABC News' Charles Gibson the other day, which he presumably considered an important valedictory chat with the American public as well.

Card Check "You Have Nothing To Lose But Your Chains"

Even though the Federal Reserve is now the biggest single participant in the financial system, the myth of a "free market" still lingers on. Go figure? The Fed has expanded its balance sheet by $2 trillion, guaranteed $8.3 trillion of dodgy mortgage-backed paper, provided a backstop for bank deposits, money markets, commercial paper, and created 8 separate lending facilities to ensure that underwater financial institutions can still appear to be solvent.

Gun Control: Protecting Terrorists and Despots

Those that wish to have guns, and disregard the law, will have guns. Gun control makes violence safer and more effective for the aggressive, whether the aggressor is a terrorist or a government.

Greece Fire

Undeterred by the violence, two leftwing political parties staged separate protest meetings followed by a march to parliament.

Alecos Alavanos, leader of Syriza, which is supported by many young Greeks, called for the resignation of the centre-right government.

“There was no justification for what happened. The conservatives cannot stay in power after this,” he said.

Beware of the “Sucker Clause” Rally

Seasonably speaking, December is one of the best months to own stocks. For the past 20 or so years the average monthly return in the month of December has exceeded 3%. Considering how quick and intense this collapse has been, one must anticipate a counter-trend upward correction. Bear markets are notorious for these but you should try to avoid getting caught in the euphoria and pay attention to the longer term trend.

In the words of the great John Murphy, “Keep you’re eyes on the charts and off the TV.”

Time for an Electoral College Revolt!

The Election Of The Greatest
Con-Man In Recent History
By James Petras
12-8-8

"I have a vision of Americans in their 80's being wheeled to their offices and factories having lost their legs in imperial wars and their pensions to Wall Street speculators and with bitter memories of voting for a President who promised change, prosperity and peace and then appointed financial swindlers and war mongers." -- An itinerant Minister, 2008

If Only US Law Applied to the US Government

If only American laws applied to the American government. Then the criminals who have been in charge for eight years could be prosecuted for their extreme violation of United States laws. But, of course, the great, moral American government is far above the law. American law only applies to dispensable nations. America is not answerable to law, not to its own law and not to international law. U.S. Attorney General Michael Mukasey affirmed that the U.S.

WHAT CHANGE?

There will be no change to the welfare state. There will be little change to the warfare state. No change to NATO, except to expand it. Very little change, if any, to foreign policy. No change to America's open sieves, otherwise called national borders. And there will be absolutely no change to the burgeoning New World Order that began in earnest under both Bushes and Bill Clinton.

Exploding Colorado Fireball, 100 Times Brighter than the Moon (Video)

Last night, the Colorado skies played host to a dazzling fireball event. The meteor blasted through the atmosphere, detonated and outshone the Moon by 100 times. It is therefore expected that there were many eyewitnesses, and the Cloudbait Observatory (5 km north of the town of Guffey, CO) is appealing to people to report their accounts of the fireball. Fortunately, the observatory managed to capture an all-sky camera video of the early morning explosion.

Pollution turning males female, scientists warn

The male gender is in serious danger amongst both humans and many animal species, boffins are warning.

An increasing number of studies have indicated that toxins in the food chain - particularly in water - are having alarming effects on hormones in mammals and fish.

Sperm levels are dropping across the globe and there are increasing reports of communities exposed to high amounts of so-called "gender-bender" chemicals having many more girl babies than boys.

Hubble Finds Unidentified Object in Space, Puzzles scientists

It’s obvious for everybody that more and more interest is being put into space flights, and we’re approaching another era in this field. There’s a good reason why astronauts have it so hard and why they take so many chances; every once in a while, they find something that just bafflesc scientists and that’s impossible to explain, at least at first.

FBI: Criminals auto-dialing with hacked VoIP systems

Criminals are taking advantage of a bug in the Asterisk Internet telephony system that lets them pump out thousands of scam phone calls in an hour, the U.S. Federal Bureau of Investigation warned Friday.

The FBI didn't say which versions of Asterisk were vulnerable to the bug, but it advised users to upgrade to the latest version of the software. Asterisk is an open-source product that lets users turn a Linux computer into a VoIP (Voice over Internet Protocol) telephone exchange.

Teen Transplant Candidate Sued Over Music Downloads

A young Pittsburgh woman who needs a transplant has another fight on her hands. She's being sued by the music industry for illegally downloading music from the Internet.

But 19-year-old Ciara Sauro strongly denies the charge and says she and her mother are overwhelmed with medical debts.

"Look and see where it (the downloads) came from, and look and see that it's not me. It's not fair to do to me," said Sauro.

Sauro, who lives in Ross Township, is disabled with pancreatitis. She needs an islet cell transplant and is hospitalized weekly.

Proposed fee on smelly cows, hogs angers farmers

MONTGOMERY, Ala. – For farmers, this stinks: Belching and gaseous cows and hogs could start costing them money if a federal proposal to charge fees for air-polluting animals becomes law.

Farmers so far are turning their noses up at the notion, which is one of several put forward by the Environmental Protection Agency after the U.S. Supreme Court ruled in 2007 that greenhouse gases emitted by belching and flatulence amounts to air pollution.

Smoking gun! Rockefeller Official Revealed NWO Plot in 1969

Much of what Day promised in 1969 is like looking into a rear-view mirror today. But ominous events have yet to transpire. They do want to implant a chip in us so they can find and identify us, as well as monitor and control our purchases. They are weaning us off national allegiance and will resort to terrorism to win our assent to their global police state. They may use "one or two nuclear bombs to convince people we mean business," Day said. He refrained from mentioning who "we" are but said the names are recognizable.
