President Peres of Israel yesterday met for the first time with Governor Palin and with Senator McCain, who called the veteran Israeli statesman "my old friend." The warm handshake and exchange of broad smiles occurred during an international gathering known as the Clinton Global Initiative, hosted by President Clinton. "I wanted to meet you for many years," Ms. Palin told Mr. Peres, according to an aide to the president. "The only flag at my office is an Israeli flag," she was quoted as saying, "and I want you to know and I want Israelis to know that I am a friend."

$700,000,000,000 EXTORTION - We're technically already bankrupt as a Nation. Don't let the criminals take our final credit draws.
Posse Comitatus ended in 2008. And now all you who shiver with glee at the sight of a soldier with a gun are going to get the biggest kick.
OCT 1, 2008 - The Army's 3rd Infantry Division’s 1st Brigade Combat Team will be on call for American Citizenry should the need arise. Hey Bubba, that's to be used ON the American Citizenry.
I realize that it is asking WAY too much to expect that an American understand the implications of this, but at least I have it off my chest.
Bubba - "Hell Ya, I'd like to see more spent on the military to go to kill them Aarabs and Russians!"
(bubba's real earnings has decreased annually at an alarming rate. He is having trouble filling his pickup with petrol because his girlfriend's grocery shopping dollars pretty much take up all his minimal earnings, after paying rent.)
Russians - The NeoCons avowed enemy... The NeoCons extorted and pillaged the Russians in the 90's and they know the Russians want payback.
And of course the real power brokers want nothing more but for WWIII to get going.

USS Liberty after 5 hours Israeli air and sea attack and murder of US sailors in their impotent attempt to sink a ship.
Admiral John S. McCain, Jr., then Commander-in-chief, Naval Forces Europe (CINCUSNAVEUR), at his headquarters in London, had charged Admiral Kidd (in a letter dated June 10, 1967) to “inquire into all the pertinent facts and circumstances leading to and connected with the armed attack; damage resulting therefrom; and deaths of and injuries to Naval personnel.”
McCain was responsible for sweeping the incident under the rug and shutting up the surviving sailors for 30 years.

We have now insured that we will never have a sound healthcare / safety net in this country for
YEARS to come.

Come on you flag waving americans, you have already signed over your personal liberties to shadow federal powers, now all you have to give is the remaining collective "wealth". Just hand it over and go back to your sitcoms.
Payable to Goldman Sachs and friends
The threat of impending financial meltdown is the most grotesque form of extortion seen since the bankers took down the Soviet Union in the 90's.

While American bankers are asking for handouts from taxpayers, Bolivians are fighting for their life from these Intl Bankers
It's doubtful the native Eva Morales can withstand the tricks, bribes and brute force of the European/American plunderer, but God bless him for standing his ground.

Greenspan Urges Congress To Fuel Growth of Derivatives
The Federal Reserve chairman, Alan Greenspan, urged Congress today to encourage the growth of complex financial contracts known as derivatives before the United States share of that market and associated benefits are lost to other countries.
Recent advances in technology encourage the consolidation of the multitrillion-dollar market for over-the-counter derivatives, even as United States laws impede its development, Mr. Greenspan said in testimony to the Senate Agriculture Committee.
Mr. Greenspan and Treasury Secretary Lawrence H. Summers both endorsed an exclusion from commodities laws for professional investors, which they have previously recommended.
''Rapid changes in communications technology portend that time is running out for us to modernize our regulation of financial markets before we lose them and the associated profits and employment opportunities to foreign jurisdictions that impose no such impediments,'' Mr. Greenspan said in the text of his remarks.
His remarks expanded on a November report by the Fed aimed at ending years of concern about new rules for derivatives.
Congress plans to rewrite the Commodity Exchange Act, which regulates futures trading. The act expires later this year. The Senate Agriculture Committee Chairman, Richard Lugar, an Indiana Republican, said today that he hoped Congress would vote within three months on a bill rewriting the law.
Lawmakers also intend to clarify laws regarding over-the-counter derivatives, investments that rise or fall in value based on the performance of another commodity, currency, security or other asset. Though derivatives are similar to regulated futures contracts, they are not governed directly by any securities, banking or futures rules, and federal laws are vague about whether they should be regulated and if so, by whom.
It is an important issue for major banks and securities firms, which have billions of dollars tied up in derivatives.

U.S. Wage Earners now liable for:
$5.3 Trillion - Fannie Mae / Freddie Mac
$85 Billion - AIG
$800 Billion - Generic High Risk loan guarantee (a fantasticly low figure)
This bailout of the mega rich will first show itself by higher Interest Rates demanded by our foreign financiers. This higher interest rates will further squeeze the governments ability to provide the already pitiful social safety net it provides.
Funny how the bankers rammed through bankruptcy reform a few years ago and then cry like infant babies when their investments go sour and come running to the government when they are in need.
Someday the american sheeple will wake up to the amazing graft that has taken place these last two weeks, but of course it will be too late by then and the financing scums already have scurried off to a new country / economy.

Unrestrained Capitalists are quickly coming to the end of their credit line ... and NOW they LOVE the people's government .... to bail them out.
Give this another six months of financial chaos finally hitting small town Main Street and quite possibly Jimmy Bob will figure out the insanity of trickle down economics and privatized public services. The Chicago School boys and their Republican side kicks have had their day, but it is quickly coming to an end.

If you wanted the destruction of the dollar, a lightning fast implementation of a police state, limitless capitalistic greed and the pissing away of American wealth manipulating and killing peoples on every continent, then these are your glory days.
As for the rest of us, this boy toy of the neocons represents the lowest point in this country's short and painful history.
In 2008, our options as a country now are much more limited than they were in 2001. We have significantly less influence and wealth.
Credit Default Swap - This is what the American Financial Empire Collapse will be about in the textbooks.
American/British bankers have cross collateralized the world. This rats nest of financial liability is the proverbial elephant in the room of our current times that dwarfs the mortgage crisis.
They couldn't sink the USS Liberty after 5 hours of Air and Sea assault.... maybe they can sink a little fishing boat and a dingy of International Observers.... idiots
Lehman Bros CEO Richard Fuld - 2007 compensation = $22 Mil
(he of course will have a luxury retirement in Israel)
25,000 Employee Jobs / Company Stock = worthless

Flag waving evangelicals who get their steady diet of propaganda from the corporate/CIA press aren't even aware of how dirty CIA hands are in controlling the gigantically profitable drug trade (one of the only true hard currencies... Oil/Minerals/Gems, Drugs and weapons). We not only make money dealing, but also sending users to extremely lucrative Corporate prisons.

In this surreal NeoCon world of Guns, God and Babes, we will soon be killing countless more innocents in far away Persian lands.
This is while the UN nuclear watchdog has confirmed that Iran enriches uranium-235 to a level of 3.7 percent - a rate consistent with the construction of a nuclear power plant. Nuclear arms production requires an enrichment level of above 90 percent.
Currently suffering from electricity shortage, Iran has been forced to adopt a rationing program by scheduling power outages - of up to two hours a day - across both urban and rural areas in the country.

PESHAWAR: At least 500 civilians were killed or wounded during the five-day US-led troops' ground and air operation in the Sangin district of Helmand province, a member of Afghanistan's parliament said on Sunday.
"Foreign forces have been conducting operation in Sarwan Qala area of Sangin district for the last five days in which artillery and aircraft are being used," Dad Muhammad Khan, member of Wolesi Jirga (lower house of parliament), told Afghan Islamic Press.
"The dead and injured were lying in the area and there is no one to shift the injured. Yesterday, I raised the issue in the parliament but the government has done nothing so far," he said.
Amy Goodman is arrested today. What is happening to our country? Our police and paid thugs are enjoying short term power trips....
but history shows police thugs always "get replaced" as newer more loyal thugs take over.
