The media are proclaiming the Republican victory on November 2 as a triumph for the Tea Party. But the public's views don't reflect the Tea Party's right-wing positions. WE DIDN'T have to know the exact outcome of the 2010 midterm elections to know what the media's analysis of the results--and their unsolicited advice to President Barack Obama and the Democrats--would be.
Leading Republican Senator Lindsey Graham signaled a turn following the midterm elections toward an escalation of US threats against Iran, publicly calling for an all-out war that would “neuter” Tehran and leave it incapable of resistance.
If you are interested in Jewish political power and Zionist morbidity you must find the time to watch the first forty minutes of this incredible Israeli documentary. The film outlines what early Zionists thought of their Diaspora Jewish brothers, Jewish wealth, Jewish war mongering and Jewish power. Just five minutes into the documentary, Herzl is quoted as saying: “The wealthy Jews control the world…In their hands lies the fate of government and nations” (4:59)
From Jewish Voice for Peace A group of young Jews with the Young Leadership Institute of Jewish Voice for Peace, including many from the Bay Area, traveled to the largest gathering of Jewish leaders in the US, the Jewish Federation General Assembly, to confront leaders on an approach to saving Israel’s reputation and building young Jewish identity they say actually turns young Jews away.
Grocery store owners William and Esperanza Casco were making enough money to stay current on their mortgage, but when JPMorgan Chase & Co. offered a plan that reduced their payments, they figured they could use the extra cash and signed up. The Cascos say they never missed a subsequent payment, so they were horrified when the bank decided the smaller payments weren't enough and foreclosed on their modest Long Beach home.
The stunning Republican gains in the US elections appear to have doomed efforts to pass a "net neutrality" bill that would require Internet service providers to treat all Web traffic equally.
Now remember, citizens, it's the people who neglected to yank out their gold fillings to pay their credit card bills after they lost their jobs who are the real bad guys here. A debt is a debt, after all, and an honorable person would go without food or shelter to pay the crooks who are collecting the money!

Sends ripples through an international audience in Halifax. A U.S. lawmaker sent ripples through an international audience Saturday saying his country should be prepared to launch a military attack on Iran that would "neuter" the hard line regime.
The tax code holds the answer to this standoff, and the code backs Buffett. Taxes may be the bane of the Tea Party, but they’re a relative boon for the wealthy. Let’s look at some of the ways America’s tax system keeps Warren Buffett’s fortune in Warren Buffet’s hands.
The tranquility of Safed, a small Israeli city nestled high in the hills of the Upper Galilee close to the Lebanese border, is not usually disturbed except by occasional pilgrimages by Madonna or other famous devotees of the Jewish mystical teachings of Kabbalah.
Police made more than 150 arrests as a crowd broke windows and knocked down fences, protesting a Los Angeles court decision to sentence a white former transit officer to the minimum term for fatally shooting an unarmed black man. Friday night's unrest was the latest in the case against defendant Johannes Mehserle, which has provoked periodic racial strife in Oakland since he shot and killed Oscar Grant while trying to arrest him on an Oakland train platform nearly two years ago.

Britain's zealous social workers have rarely gone to such lengths to seize a child from loving parents, says Christopher Booker. Mother and child are often torn apart by our system of child protection Photo: Alamy Of all the stories I have covered about zealous social workers seizing children from loving parents without cause, none is more bizarre than the one that looked as though it would be concluded in the High Court last Friday.
Intelligence officials say 14 suspected fighters killed in the latest missile strikes to hit the country's northwest. Intelligence officials in northwestern Pakistan say US drone attacks have killed 14 fighters in the region. Two missile attacks against the suspected al-Qaeda and Taliban targets took place an hour apart in North Waziristan on Sunday, they said. The first missile struck a house and the second one hit a vehicle in the town of Ghulam Khan, just north of Miranshah, the intelligence officials told the AFP news agency on the condition of anonymity. Nine suspected fighters were killed in the attacks, they said.
Documents whose existence were denied by the Israeli government for over a year have been released after a legal battle led by Israeli human rights group Gisha. The documents reveal a deliberate policy by the Israeli government in which the dietary needs for the population of Gaza are chillingly calculated, and the amounts of food let in by the Israeli government measured to remain just enough to keep the population alive at a near-starvation level. This documents the statement made by a number of Israeli officials that they are "putting the people of Gaza on a diet".
The Federal Reserve is now trying to figure out ways to boost inflation expectations… so that Americans are encouraged to spend more before their money is worth less. Unfortunately, not only will their money soon be worth less, it will literally become worthless! Words:
Earlier this year, I took on the authorities who put Tonya Craft on trial in North Georgia for allegedly molesting three children, including her own daughter. Thanks to Ms. Craft’s tenacity for the truth and a good legal team, the jury acquitted her of all 22 counts after a month-long trial in which prosecution witnesses clearly committed perjury and one of the prosecutors, Christopher Arnt, openly lied to jurors in closing arguments. (The jurors themselves were the ones making that last statement, not me.)
Regulators shut down four more banks Friday, bringing the 2010 total to 143, topping the 140 shuttered last year and the most in a year since the savings-and-loan crisis two decades ago.
Today the financial world was buzzing with excitement because there was one moderately good piece of news for the U.S. economy. U.S. employers added 151,000 jobs during the month of October and the unemployment rate remained unchanged at 9.6%. This is certainly welcome news, but these days it seems as though there are at least ten pieces of bad economic news for every hopeful economic signal.
John Allison, who for two decades served as chairman and CEO of BB&T, the nation's 10th largest bank, told CNSNews.com it is a “mathematical certainty” that the United States government will go bankrupt unless it dramatically changes its fiscal direction. Allison likened what he sees as the predictable future bankruptcy of the United States to the problems at Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac, whose insolvency he also said was foreseeable to those who studied their business practices and financial situation.
Within a decade, a loaf of wheat bread may cost $23 in a grocery store in the United States, and a 32-oz package of sugar might run $62. A 64-oz container of Minute Maid Orange Juice, meanwhile, could set you back $45.71. This is all according to a new report released Friday by the National Inflation Association which warns consumers about the coming wave of food price inflation that's about to strike the western world.
The nine PRIVATE Banks that OWN the (so-called) "Federal Reserve" aren't going to "buy" a (near) Trillion in U.S.Government Bonds using any "money" of their own! Their "purchase" is a FRAUD! At a cost to the "Federal Reserve" Banksters of only ink, paper and labor, our Treasury's hired printing presses will print off a TRILLION in "Federal Reserve" paper "Dollars" - backed by nothing but thin air!
Despite the sharp rise in food prices, annual input price inflation - manufacturers' raw material costs - slowed to 8% from 8.7% Rising wheat costs have pushed up wholesale food prices. Photograph: Graham Turner for the Guardian Soaring wheat and other commodity costs on world markets have pushed up UK wholesale food prices at the fastest rate in two years, official figures showed this morning.

The Federal Reserve will pump $600 billion more into the US economy and keep interest rates at historical low levels. The short-term impact of the Fed’s move, known as quantitative easing, has been a jump in stock prices across the globe. Many nations, however, have accused the United States of waging a currency war by devaluing the dollar. We speak to former Wall Street economist and University of Missouri professor Michael Hudson. "The object of warfare is to take over a country’s land, raw materials and assets, and grab them," Hudson says. "In the past, that used to be done militarily by invading them. But today you can do it financially simply by creating credit, which is what the Federal Reserve has done."
The Obama administration said Friday it will cut premiums and upgrade coverage in a new health plan for people with medical problems, because enrollment has been disappointingly low. Government economists had projected that people turned down by private insurers would flock to the new Pre-Existing Condition Insurance Plan, with 375,000 expected to sign up this year. But as of this week, a little more than 8,000 had enrolled, officials said. Part of the problem is sticker shock. Premiums vary by state, and can range from $400 to $600 per month or more for people in their 40s and 50s.
The inverse silver lining to today's jobs report that will be lost in the shuffle of what is perceived as a good NFP (despite consistent initial jobless claims of around 450K, which means that either there is a massive data error, or the rate of job creation has somehow surged) is that labor force participation has now dropped to the lowest rate it has been since 1984, at 64.5%.
Oil jumped above $87 a barrel Friday in Asia, reaching its highest since early May, as the Federal Reserve's plan to buy $600 billion of Treasury bonds to stimulate the U.S. economy continued to send a tide of cash into stocks and commodities. Benchmark crude for December delivery was up 37 cents at $86.86 a barrel at late afternoon Bangkok time in electronic trading on the New York Mercantile Exchange after earlier reaching $87.22. The contract climbed $1.80 to settle at $86.49 on Thursday.
China, Germany and Brazil warned the Federal Reserve's move to inject money into the U.S. economy might harm the rest of the world, though Beijing said Friday the tactic was understandable because of the slow recovery. China's central bank chief said the debate about the Fed's attempt to spur growth by pumping $600 billion into the economy through purchases of Treasury bonds highlighted the need to reform the global financial system.
RIO BRANCO, Brazil, "Put yourself in God's hands," his mother told him just before she died. Only later did he understand that as she was dying of kidney failure, she was urging him to continue her work as a Catholic evangelist. It was 1980 and they were living in the remote "seringal" -- a rubber extraction area in the jungle -- of Iracema in a community that was like one big family made up of dozens of adults and children surviving on sales of nuts, natural latex extracted from the "seringueira" or rubber tree, and other products harvested in the jungle.
slstoll23: Even when I visited someone in prison, they always used female guards to politely pat me down, and NEVER on any private parts! I can't believe they would allow male guards to feel up woman and children. This is pure evil! Too Unbelievable! What the hell is wrong with your country? CodeTwo2: All I can say to the decent guys in the US is... what the hell are you waiting for? How obvious does it have to be, what's going on, and the intentions of it? You are being OWNED AND DEGRADED like animals. How much are you going to take? Your wives and girlfriends, your CHILDREN being subjected to THIS? And even more will come thick & fast if you allow it. Get together, organize yourselves. STOP this crap before it's too late. Opt Out of a Body Scan? Then Brace Yourself “Opt out! We got an opt out!” one bellowed about me in a tone that people in my desert neighborhood in Tucson usually reserve for declaring, “Rattlesnake!”
US military deliberately sent Shia and Kurdish commandoes into Sunni areas for torture, Wikileaks documents show. The revelation by Wikileaks of a US military order directing US forces not to investigate cases of torture of detainees by Iraqis has been treated in news reports as yet another case of lack of concern by the US military about detainee abuse. But the deeper significance of the order, which has been missed by the news media, is that it was part of a larger US strategy of exploiting Shia sectarian hatred against Sunnis to help suppress the Sunni insurgency when Sunnis had rejected the US war.
Federal Reserve policies have put the US dollar the risk of crashing, which will hammer consumers through higher prices, strategist Axel Merk told CNBC. Investors should brace for a much weaker dollar [.DXY 76.585 0.705 (+0.93%) ] by diversifying out of the greenback and into currencies of other countries, said Merk, chairman and chief investment officer of Merk Investments, of Portland, Maine.
Despite yesterday’s election, it is now blatantly obvious that Obama & Co neither cares about the United States of America nor its people. Today, the US tyrant--along with an estimated 50 jumbo jets full of his 3,000 person entourage--will fly Air Force One (followed by the second AF One and Marine One copters) to Mumbai, India where he and his merry minions will take over the entire Taj Mahal and other hotels. The now fully visible to the entire world hedonist and “Neroistc” monarch Obama will spend at least $200 Millions PER DAY of OUR money to indulge his every whim and fantasy. As members of his now wholly-owned media are traveling with him, any news about this grotesque and extreme extravagant waste of taxpayer money--especially considering the US’ current financial disaster brought on principally by this same “monarch”--is virtually, if not literally, criminal.
Gulf Coast residents, fishermen, seafood distributors, and scientists believe that living on the coast and eating seafood from the Gulf has become hazardous to their health. In response to their oil disaster last summer that released at least 4.9 million barrels of oil into the Gulf of Mexico, BP admitted to using at least 1.9 million gallons of widely banned toxic Corexit dispersants (which have been banned in 19 countries) to sink the oil. The dispersants contain chemicals that many scientists and toxicologists have warned are dangerous to humans, marine life, and wildlife.
The news is all about the Tuesday’s U.S. elections, but some of us are concerned about the news on Monday regarding a possible eruption of the Grimsvotn volcano in Iceland. Never heard of it? You will.
ETAs more Gulf and U.S. east coast residents, sick and dying from being poisoned in the Gulf Operation, ask who will stand up for them if the government does not, Homeland Security official has revealed that it has begun an emergency supply redistribution, aiming to mobilize disaster supplies to warehouses nationally within 90 days. The public health emergency from Gulf region disaster has now spread up the US east coast impacting the national food supply as well as being an undeclared by officials public health emergency for people on the east coast of Florida and people as far inland as Tennessee with no national assistance to date.
Deep beneath Vegas’s glittering lights lies a sinister labyrinth inhabited by poisonous spiders and a man nicknamed The Troll who wields an iron bar. But astonishingly, the 200 miles of flood tunnels are also home to 1,000 people who eke out a living in the strip’s dark underbelly.
In back-to-back press conferences Wednesday, the day after sweeping Republican gains in the 2010 midterm election, victorious Republican Party leaders and Democratic President Barack Obama took their first tentative steps towards an open political partnership directed against the American working class. The man who will become speaker of house in January, Ohio Republican Congressman John Boehner, made an appearance on Capitol Hill, flanked by Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell and Governor Haley Barbour of Mississippi, chairman of the Republican Governors Association.
Conservative commentator, former Marine Colonel Bob Pappas has been saying for years that bin Laden died at Tora Bora and that Senator Kerry’s claim that bin Laden escaped with Bush help was a lie. Now we know that Pappas was correct. The embarrassment of having Secretary of State Clinton talk about bin Laden in Pakistan was horrific. He has been dead since December 13, 2001 and now, finally, everyone, Obama, McChrystal, Cheney, everyone who isn’t nuts is finally saying what they have known for years.
