    The question is then, how to implement this remedy? I agree and also wish to find an exit to the destruction which is wrought by war. Both on the nations where the physical results are impacting with death as the only result and on the home nation whose citizens bear the brunt of imperial hegemony [...]

    The conversation between the fake Koch and Scott Walker, Governor of Wisconsin is revealing in many ways.   One aspect is interestingly where the telephone discussion turns to the national agenda of the corporate and financial elites of globalisat­ion and multi-nati­onal corporate entities. The various points made by Walker, which included coordinati­ng the various state legislator­s and [...]

    What more need we hear to know the voice of the system speaking with a voice sonorous and yet still tempered by a timber tolerable for some. Harken to the trumpets now shrill in their braying that the sacrifices which Nation needs must be made on the backs of the many who can least bear [...]

  • What more need we hear to know the voice of the system speaking with a voice sonorous and yet still tempered by a timber tolerable for some. Harken to the trumpets now shrill in their braying that the sacrifices which Nation needs must be made on the backs of the many who can least bear it.

    Oh bummer is the kindest of present monikers to this situation which has been a brewing for over 30 years, the bitter swill is now all that is offered as the dream of the American worker. Not too long ago but fading from the cognizant discussion­, against today’s anointed explainers of the new decider’s choosing to side with corporatio­ns and multi-nati­onals against the citizens, is the role of government acting for the people.

    Still we forget the admonition­, “In the councils of government­, we must guard against the acquisitio­n of unwarrante­d influence,­… The potential for the disastrous rise of misplaced power exists and will persist.” [Eisenhowe­r, January 17, 1961]

    But this has been played out recently (and more significantly is now playing out here in spades), we need only to look to the adventures of the multi-nati­onal financiers with explicit government backing, to extract the wealth of nations, such as those in South America, Asia, and the attempt almost completed then ended by Putin in Russia. To impose an austerity based debt peonage system on the majority of citizens, which benefits only the financial elites of the plutocracy­, in the name of government doing what’s good for the nation, STINKS.

    “There’s just too much money in it.” Astounding admission.  Today Hilliary Clinton answered the question as to why the U.S.  couldn’t legalize drugs. The laundering of illegal funds is one of the primary functions of the multi-national financial institutions today. Additionally, it must be clearly noted that the U.S. intelligence agencies have and continue to [...]

  • The growing cult of personality built around Reagan is similar to that of Mao in China.

    Israel’s leader (whose human rights record speaks for itself) Netenyahu prognostic­­ates regarding the developmen­­t of revolution in the cause of freedom for the people from the oppression of dictatorsh­­ip, the smell of putrefacti­­on surrounds his words. The State of Israel is not interested in democracy. Like many quasi-fasc­­ist states, it is concerned with power. This [...]

    Would it be hard to fight for justice if the sop of equal economic opportunity and the attendant hope of  prosperity were at least moist?  No is the answer plain. People are suffering from disenfranchisement, loss of representation, physical loss of property.  Subjugated to an economic philosophy which only rewards those who hold power and dictate policy.  As this is known [...]

    Well demonstrated, and as pointed out, the re-fashioned history or present to conform with a political “reality” is modus operandi. The operators of the realm politic, the financial power of the established policy machine, and the sycophants are eager practitioners of the Newspeak which Orwell demonstrated has the purpose of serving the State.
    It is hard to deny when hearing the pained and twisted explanations of U.S. government officials, all the way up to the President, trying to balance the importance of imperial satellite states and the supposed support by this government of “democratic” aspirations.

    What will the new day bring?  A new song?  A poem perhaps.

    Move!  2011.

    Times of

    change

    are not

    measured.

    Protest  found

    in

    the streets

    of

    the soul.

    “Busy, busy, busy.”  Mantra of the White House.  Gotta’ to help foster democracy in our partner nations.  Good friends like Egypt and it’s democratically elected President.  Who, according to Joe Biden, is a pillar of democracy.  Mubarek is no dictator, only in power for 30 years, per the U.S. government and V.P. Biden’s recent interviews . Tunisia was [...]

  • Interesting. Born and five others on the FCIC report hint at the wreck that is yet to come, as the system is largely unchanged and the financial institutions are only larger. Yet, four of the commission dissented, and are issuing a dissenting report. This will weaken the whole, if any effect, of the exercise of the FCIC inquiry. Then to be seized upon by the media as an issue of principles and economic philosophy regarding views of the role of government and business. And of course the bugbear, regulation and the rule of law.

    The most serious results may be deferred prosecution agreements (DPA’s), or non prosecution agreements (NPA’s). No “To Big To Fail” institution or it’s officers will suffer for these crimes of the century.

    Otherwise the Fed will continue to print (originate) money, loan it to these very financial institutions (“banks”) at near zero interest, accept known trash as collateral, and then broadcast which Treasury Notes they wish to purchase, allowing these “banks” front run by purchasing the Notes and inflating them, then to be sold to the Fed on our dime, crap, I mean’t millions trillions.

    The game is on and the players are in charge of writing the rules.

    While our President waxed eloquent on themes of nation a certain lack of substance was to this observer palpable .  There were however serious omissions apparent.  What is the reason for our continued wars of aggressive occupation of several nations and offensive war actions in several others?  And Civil Rights?   And Financial fraud?   And The rule of [...]

    The speaking voice of the President tonight, is soothing in its inflections of earnestness.  Yet, the points touched upon are suitably vague in detail, and in this listener’s ear captures enough Newspeak to warrant caution if not guarded alarm. The concept that we must “win” the future is a false premise.  We earn our future through [...]

    Witness Obama’s op-ed in the WSJ  (Where the president lays out policy changes that are designed to show his serious commitment to “competitive” business, which is only the furtherance of the status quo that supports the fraud of the financial system and the “free trade” economy.) the other day coupled with the obsequious nature when [...]

  • One only has to substitute another nation’s name where Israel is written. What then? Try Iran for example, and would the acquiescent attitude still be the same? What if China were? But it is Israel. Oh, yes there were short lived protests and expression of outrage. Clearly the gears of the imperial hegemony are turning for their own ends and security trumps liberty.

    This is another indicator of the consolidation of wealth and power into the hands of a very few. The level of control held by fewer and ever merging corporations may soon to reach an apex. Resulting in a very select and small group of huge and influential corporation dictating policy to the public with government backing. Yet they strive on to the pinnacle of free market solutions, hegemony, to rule all and have no competition, free to extract unhindered profit.

    The sycophancy of the government to these corporate “citizens” is indicative of the hand in hand relationship that exists more often than not in today’s globalized U.S. It falls down to the fact that the perceived role of government is none other than that of enabler and facilitator of private corporate enterprise.
