BANK TO SPLASH £2.5M OF BAILOUT CASH ON PARTIES

ONE of the high street banks bailed out by the Government is spending almost £2.5million on Christmas parties for its staff, it emerged last night.

The decision by Lloyds TSB, which accepted a £5.5billion handout just a few weeks ago, has sparked outrage.

The bank is refusing to scale down its festive celebrations even though it was one of the beneficiaries of Gordon Brown’s £37billion rescue package designed to save the British banking system from collapse.

The New Trough

The Wall Street bailout looks a lot like Iraq — a "free-fraud zone" where private contractors cash in on the mess they helped create

NAOMI KLEIN

On October 13th, when the U.S. Treasury Department announced the team of "seasoned financial veterans" that will be handling the $700 billion bailout of Wall Street, one name jumped out: Reuben Jeffery III, who was initially tapped to serve as chief investment officer for the massive new program.

RAHM EMANUEL: Ardent Zionist called Obama’s ‘Svengali’

More sinister than Karl Rove and potentially deadlier than Dick “Darth Vader” Cheney, his name is Rahm Emanuel, and he was recently appointed chief of staff in the president-elect’s White House. This first official act should send waves of alarm through people because Barack Obama promised change, but what we’re getting is the exact same cabal that brought us 9-11 and endless war in the Middle East.

The TARP Is Dead

Think back. Think far, far back into the past. Think all the way back to the last week of September 2008. Historians tell us that at that time many Americans took leave of their senses. Despite all the evidence of their own eyes, ears, and noses, they became persuaded that the world as they had always known it stood on the verge of utter destruction. Hysterical "journalists" and "experts" on radio and television told them so. What else could they do? Because life without a flush 401(k) lay beyond their wildest imagination, they concluded that "something must be done."

HIDDEN KNOWLEDGE: ANCIENT ARCHIVES & CODICES NOW AVAILABLE 4 YOU (links)

The books of secret codes and hand-penned bibles inside Switzerland's oldest library are usually the preserve of the most serious scholars. Anyone wanting to sit down and study one of the St Gallen Abbey Library's 2,100 manuscripts must first be vetted, providing references before being allowed through the door. But that is about to change.

Corporate farms cashing in on tax subsidies and large profits

For over 70 years American taxpayers have been doling out billions of dollars every year to underwrite the agriculture sectors’ cost of doing business. Established as “temporary” emergency measures during the Great Depression, these antiquated policies have since devolved into a gravy train supporting corporate agribusiness at the expense of the public purse.

Afghan civilians suffering in airstrikes

A Human Rights Watch reports says that rapid respond air strikes have caused high civilian casualties and is fueling a public backlash in Afghanistan.

“Rapid response air strikes have meant higher civilian casualties, while every bomb dropped in populated areas amplifies the chance of a mistake,” said Brad Adams, Asia director at Human Rights Watch in the 43-page report.

“Mistakes by the US and NATO have dramatically decreased public support for the Afghan government and the presence of international forces providing security to Afghans,” report added.

Providers Close Doors to Poor

Budget cuts in the state’s Medicaid program are forcing a major shift in where Nevada’s poor can seek health care.

Cancer patients who had received outpatient treatment at University Medical Center, for instance, will have to seek treatment at other hospitals and clinics because UMC, citing reductions in Medicaid payments, says it can no longer afford to offer cancer treatment.

Summit pledge to "restore growth"

There's no need to quote the article here. The title says it all.

They are getting it all wrong again.

More growth means more of a bubble, more population, more pollution and greater numbers of poor people having even greater numbers of babies...

These moronic leaders led by the head moron in George W. Bush are all standing amid all the other billions of bacteria in the human petri dish of our existence pledging to "restore growth".

Growth is the problem, fools!

Attorney General contender carries 9/11 related baggage

Monday’s New York Times reported that former Deputy A.G. and 9/11 Commissioner Jamie Gorelick was a candidate for Attorney General in the new Obama Administration. Five-time Emmy winning investigative reporter Peter Lance details a shocking, but little known story about Gorelick involving the loss of a key al Qaeda operative. This is an excerpt from his 2006 HarperCollins book TRIPLE CROSS soon to be published in trade paperback.

Have a cat that won't stay off your counters? I do. I finally got fed up with it enough to do something about it: scare the crap out of him with a motion-detecting blender (while recording the results for my own amusement, of course).

HDMI Cable Con

In the past when interconnects for audio and visual equipment were analogue the quality of the cable would make a real difference to image and sound quality. However, the same cannot be said of digital interconnects such as HDMI cables. These either work or they don’t work; and there is no difference between a cheap £10 and a £40 cable. The retailers make a small fortune out of these expensive cables as the mark-up can be as high as 80%. In fact, many retailers rely heavily on this as a major source of income due to the high margins and the fact the margins are low on the main products.

The Worst Is Not Behind Us

It is useful, at this juncture, to stand back and survey the economic landscape--both as it is now, and as it has been in recent months. So here is a summary of many of the points that I have made for the last few months on the outlook for the U.S. and global economy, as well as for financial markets:

Sarkozy backs Russian calls for pan-European security pact

President Nicolas Sarkozy of France joined Russia in condemning the Pentagon's plans to install missile defence bases in central Europe yesterday and backed President Dmitri Medvedev's previously ignored calls for a new pan-European security pact.

Both presidents concluded a Russia-EU summit, in Nice in the south of France, with an agreement to convene a major international conference next summer at which the Americans, Russians and the 27 countries of the EU should come up with a blueprint for new post-cold war "security architecture" in Europe.

Rahm Emanuel - Israeli Spy

John O'Neill and another FBI agent who still works for the bureau discovered that Emanuel was heavily involved in the decision to place Lewinsky close to Clinton. O'Neill retired after being set up in a smear operation involving a temporarily stolen briefcase in 2001, accepted the top security position for Kroll Associates at the WTC, and was killed in the 9/11 attack. Clinton reportedly had knowledge of Israeli intelligence penetration of White House communications systems, and Lewinsky, in sworn testimony before the Office of Independent Counsel, stated:

Context - The Elegant Key to Everything

So many people searching for that all important 'truth' that remains elusive: Part of the answer that everyone needs to have, to find what they are looking for, is 'context." Because without 'context' there can be no real knowledge, only data. This is the one thing that overarches every field of endeavor and every area of expertise, which is why it remains the Key to Everything.

He Fought the Wars and the Wars Won

What George W. Bush loved best about his job was being a war president. Playing war, that is, as opposed to making war like a grown-up. Remember him strutting onto that carrier in his little flight jacket? You never saw Eisenhower, a real general, playing out his martial fantasies this way. You can take the drink out of the drunk, but you can’t take the swagger out of a fool.

Iraqis Believe Americans Bombing Them to Push Status of Forces Agreement

Some people are saying that the Americans are making the bombings to make Iraqis believe that it is very important for them to stay in Iraq, that they are still needed. The Americans say that when they
withdraw from Iraq violence will increase. Is that a threat? You can read it as a threat, or you can read it as an expectation. Some Iraqis take it as a threat.

Some people are asking: “Are the Americans punishing us with bombings because Iraq has refused to sign the SOFA?” [Status of Forces Agreement]
