Fed Wants to Hoodwink Public, Only Fools Itself

Caroline Baum
Bloomberg

If I were a central banker, I would be afraid.

If I were a central banker getting ready to embark on another round of quantitative easing, I would be very afraid.

Here’s why. Central bankers in the U.S. are being bombarded with market-based signals suggesting their fears of deflation, or falling economy-wide prices, may be misplaced.

Lemonheads' Evan Dando Says WTC on 9/11 "Blown Up By Bombs"

"Dando uses both hands to pick up his piece of the World Trade Center. “Open the window,” he commands. “The towers were right there. That morning really fucked me up. The second plane was so close, it went shoom, right over my head.” He pauses and absentmindedly pats the pack of Marlboro Lights in his shirt pocket. “Because I was so close, I know what really happened,” he says. “I shouldn’t get into it, because I’m not a political person, but they were blown up by bombs. They were not taken out by those airplanes. Those fires were going out and then the buildings blew up. What I saw and heard that day was a crime, and not by the people they’re saying. That’s all I’ll say.” He pauses. “I’m worried about our country. But then again I’ve been worried about America my entire life.”"

CYBERCOM to Go Operational This Month

In August, the Pentagon revealed information about a cyber attack against the US military’s Central Command in 2008. According to the Pentagon’s account, USB memory sticks were randomly placed in a washroom at a US military base in the Middle East providing support for the war in Iraq. The memory sticks, infected with a computer worm by an undisclosed foreign intelligence agency, were picked up by soldiers who ignored protocol and plugged them into military laptops. The worm took 14 months to kill. In a very similar attack earlier this year, Iran experienced a computer worm (the Stuxnet virus) that infected around 30,000 IP addresses, as well as the computers at the Bushehr nuclear plant.

FRANKLIN LAMB: AHMEDINEJAD IN LEBANON

Qana near the border with Palestine; He came, he saw, he conquered.

By Franklin Lamb — Veterans Today

As he watched the Iranian President blow kisses to cleaning workers at Beirut’s airport during his departure for Iran early this morning, a Lebanese Christian historian commented “This Persian’s glory at the moment is arguably greater than Caesars following Rome’s second conquest of Britain”.

The throngs were cheering, waving, and shouting their admiration. Local media used descriptive words like “rock star, rapturous, massive affection,” to describe his reception.

International Criminal Court (ICC) urged to act over flotilla raid

Lawyers representing relatives of those who died in an Israel raid on a Gaza-bound aid flotilla in May have urged the International Criminal Court (ICC) in the The Hague to pursue those responsible.

Ugur Sevgili, one of the lawyers, on Thursday presented to the office of the ICC prosecutor a dossier with evidence, containing videos, photos, autopsy findings and a UN report condemning the incident.

"We believe war crimes and crimes against humanity were committed," Sevgili told reporters in The Hague.

"The office of the prosecutor of the ICC has a duty to prosecute," Sevgili said, adding that "we want to bring an end to impunity. We want to bring justice to the people of Palestine".

On May 31, Israeli commandos boarded a flotilla of six humanitarian ships on their way to Gaza. Nine Turkish activists were killed on the lead ship Mavi Marmara, sparking international condemnation.

Thievery 101 – Banks Stealing Pensions Worldwide?

Taxpayers, senior citizens, and everyone who is even near approaching retirement are facing their own Waterloo. Bondholders are going to be competing with the pension beneficiaries for scarce government resources on the local, state, and federal level for there is just not enough money to pay everyone their due. Already Social Security is failing the elderly by not keeping up with inflation, but that is just a whiff of what is yet to come.

Giraldi - Israel's Policies Are Manifestly Evil

Philip Giraldi: The Israel Lobby is so powerful because it deliberately set out to establish control over key elements in the United States. It has demonstrated a number of times that politicians who are perceived as being unfriendly to Israel will face serious problems in being reelected because the Lobby mobilizes to provide money and media support to opponents. This means that congress is afraid to oppose anything that Israel and its Lobby wants. The same holds true for the presidency. Every presidential candidate must be seen as friendly to Israel or he will be attacked in the media and denied millions of dollars in political contributions, making it a safer option to support Israel. Finally, pro-Israeli interests control much of the media and, more important, dominate the opinion and editorial pages, making the only narrative that most Americans hear about the Middle East highly favorable to Israel and highly critical of all Israel's enemies. As a result, Israel is able to control U.S. foreign policy as it relates to the Middle East and also much of the Muslim world.

Time for a Moratorium on Mortgage Fraud

We have long known that lender fraud was rampant during the real estate boom. The FBI began warning of an “epidemic” of mortgage fraud as early as 2004. We know that mortgage originators invented “low doc” and “no doc” loans, encouraged borrowers to take out “liar loans”, and promoted “NINJA loans” (no income, no job, no assets, no problem!). All of these schemes were fraudulent from the get-go. Property appraisers were involved, paid to overvalue real estate. That is fraud. The securitizers packaged trash into bundles that ratings agencies blessed with the triple A seal of approval. By their own admission, raters worked with securitizers to provide the rating desired, never looking at the loan tapes to see what they were rating. Fraud.

Cool It Trailer



"Climate catastrophe? The end of civilization as we know it? COOL IT is based upon the book of the same name and lectures by Bjorn Lomborg, the controversial author of The Skeptical Environmentalist."


The risk is that, as it appear to be skeptical, it will at the end pin the guilt on CO2 and humans thus the only solution are taxing you out of your temper.

This is the biggest scandal in human history. Indeed, all previous scandals from around the globe combined cannot even touch this one in terms of scale and scope and stench.

By their own admission, raters worked with securitizers to provide the rating desired, never looking at the loan tapes to see what they were rating. Fraud. Venerable investment banks like Goldman Sachs packaged the trashiest securities into collateralized debt obligations at the behest of hedge fund managers–who were allowed to choose the most toxic of the toxic waste—then sold the CDOs on to their own customers and allowed the hedge funds to bet against them. More fraud.
