China Is Not The Problem

By Paul Craig Roberts

It is not China’s fault that American corporations have so
little regard for their employees and fellow citizens that
they destroy their economic opportunities and give them
to foreigners instead. Continue

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.

THE DEPRESSION OF 1929 (Ooops: I MEANT OF 2009) IS COMING, AND IT COULD BE LIKE THIS ARTICLE...OR EVEN WORSE, I DARE SAY...

QUOTE:

COMMENT: SUBSTITUTE 'AMERICA' AND THE NAME
OF YOUR NEIGHBORHOOD, RELIGION (OR LACK THEREOF;
OR MERELY YOUR BELIEFS) AND YOUR LOCAL EMPLOYER
(IF YOU'RE FORTUNATE ENOUGH TO EVEN HAVE ONE),
AND NO DOUBT YOU'LL GET SOME IDEA OF WHAT
THE NEXT DEPRESSION IN 'AMERICA' WILL BE LIKE.
A REAL FRIGHTENIN' THOUGHT. THE NEAR SIMILARITIES,
IF YOU THINK ABOUT IT (USE YOUR DAMN IMAGINATION!),
AND YOU'LL BE ASTONISHED AT WHAT YOU CAN COME
UP WITH. DOES THE YEAR "1984" RING A FRIGGIN' BELL?
DOES 1929 RING A FRIGGIN' BELL? IF IT DOESN'T, THEN
YOU'RE BRAIN DEAD. STOP READING: THESE ARTICLES
ARE NOT FOR YOU. BUT IF SUCH DATES DO HAVE MEANING,
THEN BY ALL MEANS--READ ON...


A Week in the Death of Iraq

By Dr. Mohammed

When will I die? That's the question circling in my head
when I awake on Wednesday. I'm sweating, as usual. My
muscles ache from another long night of no electricity in
weather only slightly cooler than hell. As I dress for work,
other questions assail me: How will I die? Will it be a shot
in the head? Will I be blown to pieces? Or be seized at a
police checkpoint because of my sect, then tortured and
killed and thrown out on the sidewalk? Continue

Stock Market Meltdown

It’s a Bloodbath. That’s the only way to describe it.

By Mike Whitney

On Friday the Dow Jones took a 280 point nosedive on fears
that that losses in the subprime market will spill over into
the broader economy and cut into GDP. Ever since the two
Bears Sterns hedge funds folded a couple weeks ago the stock
market has been writhing like a drug-addict in a detox-cell.
Yesterday’s sell-off added to last week’s plunge that wiped
out $2.1 trillion in value from global equity markets. Continue

Why Does Saudi Arabia Need Military Aid?

By Mark Steel

The Americans have announced a "military aid package" of sixty
billion dollars for their allies in the Middle East.- This is $250 for
every living American, $10 for everyone on the planet. - And $13bn
of this is for Saudi Arabia. Because if there's one family on this earth
in need of financial aid, it's the Saudi royal family. Continue

Forget Third Parties – It Ain’t Gonna Happen

Hijack The Democrats

By David Michael Green

Huge numbers of Americans are disgusted
with both the Republican and the Democratic parties right now,
and are hungrily clamoring for a third alternative. I know, I
know – imagine that! What’s not to like about one party that stands
for greed, murder and destruction, and another that stands by
for greed, murder and destruction? Continue

"Democracy For the Few"

A Review By Stephen Lendman

Of the world's 100 largest economies, 51 are corporations, more
US-based ones than from any other country. Noam Chomsky
calls them "private tyrannies." - They're run by wealthy and
powerful figures comprising, along with other elites, the top
1% of the nation's affluent. Today they own 40 - 50% of the
country's wealth in the form of stocks, bonds, land, natural
resources, business assets and other investments. In contrast,
90% of American families have little or no net worth after
mortgage and other debt burdens are taken into account.

profits soar for the armaments industry, the American people
continue to take it on the chin. Conntinue
