WHO RUNS (RULES) THE WORLD (BEHIND CLOSED DOORS)? GOOD QUESTION: TAKE A LOOK....

QUOTE:

Who Runs The World

Why You Need To Know Immediately

By Carolyn Baker

This parallel world remains unseen in the daily struggles
of most of humanity, but, believe me, it is there: a cesspool
of duplicity and lies and double-speak and innuendo and
blackmail and bribery. Continue

The Rise of the Have-Nots

By Harold Meyerson

The American middle class has toppled into a world
of temporary employment, jobs without benefits, and
retirement without security. Continue

QUOTE:

The Empire Is Over

By Charley Reese

The American government has come to resemble
the characters in The Wizard of Oz. We have the
Cowardly Congress, a president without a brain,
and a foreign-policy establishment without a heart.

The Administration’s Plan For Iran.

By Seymour M. Hersh

A Pentagon consultant on counterterrorism told me
that, if the bombing campaign took place, it would
be accompanied by a series of what he called “short,
sharp incursions” by American Special Forces units
into suspected Iranian training sites. He said, “Cheney
is devoted to this, no question.” Continue

Greenspan's Dark Legacy Unmasked

By Stephen Lendman

Already the top 1% owns 40% of global assets; the
top 10% 85% of them; the top 1% in the US controls
one-third of the nation's wealth; the bottom 80% just
15.3%; and the top 20% 84.7%. In contrast, the
poorest 20% are in debt, owe more than they own,
and it's getting worse. Continue

Hypocrisy Rules the West

Americans are content with whatever crimes
their government commits as long as the

The Worst Recession in 25 years? :

From 2001–2004, the Fed kept (real) rates at
the lowest they've been since the late 1970s.
One of the consequences that has already
manifested itself is the housing bubble. But
a more severe liquidation seems unavoidable.
The recent Fed cut may postpone the day of
reckoning, but it will only make the adjustment
that much harsher.

Q and A For The People Of A Forsaken Republic

Addressing the origins of the Whose-Your-Daddy Nation

By Phil Rockstroh

When a nation manifests a mixture of mass ignorance
and official mendacity, in combination with uncheck
power emanating from an insular and arrogant
elite, a golden age of peace and plenty is as possible as
holding a tea dance in a tsunami. Continue

Time to Boycott Voting

By Joel S. Hirschhorn

After many years of political disappointment, more
progressives, liberals and conservatives – and certainly
moderates and independents – know in their hearts
that voting for Democrats or Republicans is a waste.
Just imagine if voter turnout was cut to 25 percent or
less! Let the whole world see Americans boycotting a
broken and corrupt political system and rejecting what
has become a delusional democracy. Continue

At the Heart of Who We Are As a People

By John Frohnmayer

Impeachment of President Bush is necessary to maintain
our government’s separation of powers, our checks and
balances, our Constitution’s integrity. Continue

Loaded Language and Loaded Guns

The Meaning of Opposites

By Charles Sullivan

One can no longer understand US governmental policy
on the basis of conventional language or traditional
wisdom. Language itself and its long-established meanings
were long ago twisted and distorted in order to deceive
the people. Now war is peace and terror and occupation
is liberation. In order to make sense of what is happening,
it is important to understand everything within the
context of a specific economic philosophy, and the distorted
capitalist system that spawned it. Continue
