BUSH IS NO F.D.R.: IF ANOTHER 1929 ARRIVES, WE'RE IN A HURTIN' STATUS ACCORDING TO MIKE WHITNEY. A SPLENDID ARTICLE, INDEED...

QUOTE:

The Central Bank; Silent Partner in the Bloodletting

By Mike Whitney

A nation's economy is a reflection pool. The face that looks
back from the water; is the face of the culture and the
prevailing ethos. It's no different with America. The
stewards of the US economic system—Paulson and
Bernanke—are inextricably linked to a political/military
establishment which has been thoroughly marinated in
a culture of violence and corruption. Continue

An Odd Week, Indeed Piano Wire Puppeteers

By Sean Penn

Didn’t Senator Clinton just vote in essence to give
President Bush the power to bomb Iran? If he had
done it last week, would that have made her right?
I mean, if she knew then what she knows now? Or
am I getting that backward? Golly, I’m confused.

Rep. Ron Paul: Remarks on Violent Radicalization &
Homegrown Terrorism Prevention Act, HR 1955 :

Legislation such as this demands heavy-handed
governmental action against American citizens
where no crime has been committed. It is yet
another attack on our Constitutionally-protected
civil liberties. It is my sincere hope that we will
reject such approaches to security, which will fail
at their stated goal at a great cost to our way of life.

The Planned Collapse of USA

By Peter Chamberlin.

We risk blowing the world apart, to avoid watching
America slowly choke on its own excesses. - The
government has known for decades that America
is on a countdown to self-destruction. Among the
elite it is common knowledge that our "global economy"
must one day collapse from its own dead weight. Continue

QUOTE:

Bombed If You Do, Bombed If You Don't

By Ron Paul

The latest National Intelligence Estimate has been
greeted by a mixture of relief and alarm. As I have
been saying all along, Iran indeed poses no quantifiable
imminent nuclear threat to us or her neighbors. It is
with much alarm, however, that we see the administration
continue to ratchet up the war rhetoric as if nothing
has changed. Continue

Will Liberty Succumb to Federalist Society Ideology?

By Paul Craig Roberts

illegal enemy combatants. Continue

Dershowitz on Waterboarding

A blatant expansion of state power

By Mike Whitney

An article by Dershowitz appeared on op-ed page
of the Wall Street Journal on Novemeber 7, 2007,
titled “Democrats and Waterboarding”. In that article
Dershowitz makes a spirited defense of waterboarding,
going so far as to say that (he believes) the Democrats
“will lose the presidential race if it defines itself as soft
on terror.” Continue

The coming recession: Not an accident :

The downward slide triggered by belated recognition
of the subprime mortgage fiasco has a long way to
go – and it's going. Recession is certain, and, despite
the entire chorus of economists, bankers and government
officials to the contrary, a depression such as that
of the 1930s is possible.

Morgan Stanley issues full US recession alert:

Morgan Stanley has issued a full recession alert for the
US economy, warning of a sharp slowdown in business
investment and a "perfect storm" for consumers as
the housing slump spreads.

Fed Fails To Satisfy Wall Street:

In an attempt to stave off a U.S. recession, the Federal
Reserve cut interest rates to 4.25% Tuesday. Investors,
looking for an even bigger cut, dumped American stocks.

White House, Press Spinning Iran’s Centrifuges

By Ray McGovern

Those who know about the centrifuges used to refine
uranium tell me they must spin at an almost unrivaled
velocity—almost unrivaled, because Bush administration
statements are being spun at equivalent speed by
White House and corporate media spiders. Without
Spinmeister Karl Rove and former spokesman Tony
Snow, it is amateur hour at the White House. Continue

Trust is Dead

By Phil Hoskins

This experiment in government we like to call democracy
depends upon a certain level of trust, not only of
government and elected officials, but maybe more
importantly among the people themselves. After many
years under attack, we can now declare trust dead.
