    Precisely fits the infantile mentality of our “leaders” who always condescendingly refer to their enemies as “the bad guys.”

  • Word from al Nusra: “Fantastic! Hope they get there on time for Maloola massacre. Eat your heart out ghost of Bin Laden…”

  • Now the fall back for the neo-con and “progressive interventionists” unholy alliance AKA Kissingerian geopoliticians will be this: “we have the absolute proof but due to irreparable harm to CIA and NSA sources and methods we can only release redacted intelligence briefs. Trust us.” (…!?)

    Now, the heart of the matter is this: due to the spiraling collapse of the Anglo Dutch Wall Street hold on financial leverage in order to maintain power the Mideast cockpit is set ablaze in a Sunni Shiite conflagration with CIA gunrunning into former al-Qaeda anti Soviet allies (thereafter 9/11 enemies) out of Abdelhakim Belhadj’s Libyan Islamic Fighting Group. The very same LIFG that was hired to protect the Benghazi embassy then double crossed ambassador Stevens and the CIA outpost there the night of the attack. So, all this maudlin palaver that we don’t wish to arm radicals is self serving lies.

    Further, the Saudi Royals’ role in all this is being deliberately covered up. The 9/11 Commission still has not released classified section s of its report on the Saudi financing of the 9/11 hijackers. The British scandal of multi billion dollars payoffs in the BAE/al-Yamamah deal has been declared a state secret as well. It is well known that the Saudi Salafi sect hard liners are financing terrorism all over the Arab world. The Israeli neo-con war hawks think that they can play divide and conquer, but in the end they are mere expendables in the Anglo Dutch “great game.”

    The only way out is to bankrupt out the financial overlords calling the shots and replace their ability to loot and set countries around the globe ablaze. We need a return to Glass-Steagall and repudiation of trillions of fictitious gambling debts known as derivatives. The free trade race to the bottom must be ended and replaced with a credit system that promotes the revival of cooperative investment in infrastructural projects and physically productive that benefit humanity. Without this the world will inevitably careen toward a thermonuclear WWIII.

  • This just in–Jeffrey Toobin’s fall fashion pick: “black shirts are definitely in.”

  • My, my. How truly charming Saudi Royalty is. First they finance the 911 bombers and now they participate in war crimes all in the name of stopping their own flunkies and saving Democracy.

    With the current break up of the world’s monetary system the chessboard is being toppled and many human pawns are being sacrificed now by hidden hands the world over. The pawns twittered opinions of what is motivating them to act out is of little moment in the geopolitical Great Game of divide and conquer…

  • The Wall Street speculators used the Clinton administration’s ever so brilliant tactic of “triangulation” to repeal FDR’s Glass-Steagall banking regulations thereby creating worthless trillions of dollars of unregulated derivative securities. This treachery is what sunk public finances. Now Wall Street demands fascist austerity and the toady “Democrats” rush to implement it in lockstep, why should any but the most gullible mush-headed Pollyannas be surprised?

  • All this palaver over nothing…The problem is that monetarists where they be neo-liberal Keynesians or libertarian followers of Ayn Rand have no inkling whatsoever that there is a science of physical economy.
    The fact is that there must be a reckoning with the literally quadrillions of worthless debt that was created by financial houses like Goldman Sachs. The return to the FDR era’s Glass-Steagall regulation would allow this nightmare to be reined in. We must pull the plug on the too big to fail financial houses. Without this, all this sound and fury is just a tragicomic farce…

  • Here is an interesting story you folks might take note of on democratic revolt against Obama: Democrats React to State Senator’s Call for Obama Resignation.

    Downgrade Standard and Poors
    Anyone who believes that Standard and Poors should determine the credit worthiness of the United States is a damnable and sniveling fool. Alexander Hamilton provided the tonic for removing this sovereign Republic from the grasp of a financial oligarchy based in the City of London. His named antagonist in his reports to Congress was none other than Adam Smith. Smith’s doctrine that wealth was merely the product of buying and selling to get money, and that mankind must only be concerned with the principle of pleasure and pain and not the consequences of our actions upon the future of humanity is the epitome of a slave’s (or rather a subject’s) mentality. For the most part, both sides of the aisle accept (and that unthinkingly and blindly) these tenets of Adam Smith’s wretched ideology. The idea that the moneyed interests rule is their unshakable conviction. This is why they cower at the likes of S&P.
    The simple fact is that everything decent our nation has accomplished has been based upon the exact opposite principle. We have led the world because we have had a vision that our nation has a mission to uplift mankind and that the purpose of government IS to provide for the general welfare of future generations yet unborn It is well past high time we throw off the shackles of the craven belief that “money rules the world.” What is required is that our citizens exhibit a backbone again and impose a swift end to the control of these financiers by re-enacting FDR’s Glass-Steagall. Call or write your Congressman now to support Marcy Kaptur’s Glass Steagall Bill H.R.1489 and Maurice Hinchey’s Glass-Steagall bill H.R.2451

    The Unconstitutional “Super Congress” Council of Twelve
    The so-called Venetian Republic had a council of ten which did the bidding of a small and criminal oligarchy, which carried out political assassinations of its opponents with impunity. This Venetian sort of tyranny is what James Fenimore Cooper exposed in his novel The Bravo. If we accept this new form of “Super Congress,” then we shall have an outright tyranny of twelve handpicked henchmen of Wall Street, and our true form of constitutional republic will be no more a republic than the quondam oligarchic charade known as the Serenissima Repubblica di Venezia. Obama aspires to be nothing more than Il Doge, a figurehead lap dog of this brave new world.

  • Quite all right, by the way, I guess Politico doesn’t want to get on the wrong side of Morning Joe and MSNBC who are touting the crapulent tub of lard for Fuehrer.

  • Certainly, dear Starbuck: here.
    By the bye, my posting on Christie:
    “Union leader compares NJ gov to Hitler at rally
    If Christie is Adolf Hitler then he must have forgotten to take his laxatives…”was deleted from Politico. No historical sense of humor I guess…

  • Obama: “Being a dad is sometimes my hardest job”

    “Look,” said the little boy in the crowd loudly and animatedly, as he pointed to Barack Obama, who was exhibiting his typical blank stare, “the President has no mind!” An embarrassed hush descended upon the erstwhile frenzied crowd gawking at the “First Family.”

  • Who Is Nuttier Weiner or Obama?
    Oops, I’m afraid they got the wrong weiner, it’s Obama whose abject and disgraceful kowtowing to Wall Street proves that he needs the psychiatric counselling far more seriously than does the philandering congressman. (As, I should add, do those that continue to support him.)

  • So much crapola like all that the aforesaid Professors Krugman and Goolsbee come up with…The simple fact is that without establishing a return to Glass-Steagall (which Rep. Marcy Kaptur has promoted) all this is so much sound and fury signifying nothing but cfriminal speculators “too big to fail,” like the monotony of Poe’s The Bells…
