Next month, another 70,000 US workers will be cut off of unemployment benefits weeks earlier than would have been the case had President Obama and Congress not reduced the duration of extended jobless pay.

Fears that the euro zone is nearing breakup sent panicked investors to safe haven assets Wednesday, driving the yields on US government debt to their lowest levels since 1946.

In the recent elections on May 6, Greek voters sanctioned the coalition forces which had applied austerity plans and surrendered to the dictates of the Troika (the IMF, the ECB and the European Commission).

The far right party, LAOS, a member of the coalition previously in power, has practically disappeared from the political scene.

He had no phone numbers either because his phone was back home in Pasco, Washington. Alberto was in Nogales, Sonora, now, and home was about as far away as a place could be for Alberto that night, his first after being deported.
U.S. policies that continue to fuel the escalating violence and brutality of the "war on drugs" in Central and South America. PRESIDENT OBAMA recently announced an aid package of more than $130 million to fight the narcotraficantes (narco-traffickers) in Central and Latin America. The infusion of money was announced at the Summit of the Americas in April in Cartagena, Colombia, to head off criticism of the "war on drugs"--and spreading calls to declare it a failure and end it.
JPMorgan Chase, Goldman Sachs, Bank of America and the handful of other behemoths of Wall Street that dominate American banking — who needs them? After enduring years of insatiable greed by the slick-fingered hucksters who run these gambling houses; after watching in dismay as their ineptness and avarice drained more than $19 trillion from America's household wealth since 2007 and plunged our real economy into the worst financial crisis since the 1930s Depression; after witnessing their shameful demands for trillions of dollars in taxpayer bailouts to save their banks and their jobs; and now after seeing them return immediately to business as usual, including paying multimillion-dollar bonuses to themselves — we have to ask: Huh!?!
Canada's potential purchase of F-35 Joint Strike Fighters has sparked questions surrounding the appropriateness of military procurement plans and the legitimacy of government contract practices.

As if to those of us who have researched into them, it wasn't already a widely known fact that Rockefeller's JP Morgan Chase Bank is merely an American branch of the Rothschilds' operation. Now, they're simply publicly declaring what was already a fact. Guess there's no need for 'secrecy' when they're stealing everything before the coming collapse.
Can the government throw you in jail for offering advice on the Internet about what food people should buy at the grocery store?

GMO Firm Syngenta allegedly tainted the water supply of 52 million with hormonally-disruptive chemical Atrazine. The Swiss-based GMO company Syngenta settled a class action lawsuit for some $105 million over the dangers posed by its gender-bending herbicide Atrazine. Water utilities in the U.S. Midwest sued over alleged contamination resulting from Syngenta’s weed killer Atrazine, which leaked into systems and potentially affected the drinking supply of some 52 million Americans in more than 2,000 water districts, according to the Wall Street Journal. Atrazine, used as a herbicide by half of American corn growers, is banned in Europe and linked to “disrupting sexual reproductions in frogs” with some studies also linked to reproductive problems in humans.

When Corrupt Governments Are Formed and Maintained To Oversee State-sponsored Criminal Enterprises. Israel, Colombia and Pakistan share something in common which can only be properly explained when looking at the world geo-political chessboard through the lens of the New World Order (NWO) leadership. Each of these nations plays a pivotal role in their respective regions of the planet. Their roles are decidedly different from what you might expect of a sovereign nation, especially since they are engaged around the clock in so much illicit and clandestine behavior.

Estimates by some mainstream news outlets and by independent observers place the number of participants as high as 400,000.

In 2008 the mortgage derivative fraud/scam was discovered as the bubble burst. The largest central banks were wiped out, literally by their own hand. Congress surrendered its power over allocations to the Treasury Department and Henry Paulson was named Treasury Secretary. Then the American people were told that they were going to have to replace the wealth that had been stolen through the toxic derivatives because these privately owned central banks were too big to fail, thus the failure was dumped onto the people.
