China Threatens "Nuclear Option" of Dollar Sales

QUOTE:

Uncle Sam, Your Banker Will See You Now

Paul Craig Roberts

Early this morning China let the idiots in Washington, and on
Wall Street, know that it has them by the short hairs. Two
senior spokesmen for the Chinese government observed that
China’s considerable holdings of US dollars and Treasury bonds
“contributes a great deal to maintaining the position of the dollar
as a reserve currency.” Continue

We Are The Enemy

By Marcus Karr

How elegantly simple and effectively deceptive the
method of revolution really is! All it takes is to convince
the people of a serious and imminent threat, and then, with
panic and fear sown in their hearts, they will hand over
their liberties without thought or hesitation. The 'serious
and imminent threat' of the hour, which is naught but
hallucinated menace, has heretofore been of the strange
and external variety: 'They' are 'over there', where we
must meet them with courage and conviction, lest 'they'
come 'over here' once again, and do us real harm. This myth
has served its purpose well enough – we are occupying
Iraq. Continue

Democracy Dreaming

By Joel S. Hirschhorn

We have arrived at a delusional democracy. Delusional because
Americans overwhelmingly cannot admit the painful truth that
their limited democracy no longer works for the good of most
citizens. Instead, through corruption and dishonesty, our
representative democracy has morphed into a plutocracy
that serves the wealthy, power elites and corporate masters
that control the political system and through that the economic
system. Continue

How the Democrats Blew It in Only 8 Months

By Alexander Cockburn

The voters put the Democrats in to end the war, and it's
escalating. The Democrats voted the money for the surge
and the money for the next $459.6 billion military budget.
Their latest achievement was to provide enough votes in
support of Bush to legalize warrantless wiretapping for
"foreign suspects whose communications pass through the
United States." Enough Democrats joined Republicans to
make this a 227-183 victory for Bush. Continue

China’s “nuclear option” is real

By Paul Craig Roberts

Twenty-four hours after I reported China’s announcement
that China, not the Federal Reserve, controls US interest
rates by its decision to purchase, hold, or dump US Treasury
bonds, the news of the announcement appeared in sanitized
and unthreatening form in a few US news sources. Continue

The Grim Reaper Pays a Visit to Wall Street

By Mike Whitney

Alan Greenspan’s low-interest, subprime, snake-oil Caravan
took another spin down Wall Street today---ripping up pavement,
knocking down power-poles and sending traders scampering
for safety. When the dust finally settled, “Maestro’s”
wrecking ball had lopped another 387 points off the Dow
Jones leaving markets reeling and investors cringing in fear.
