MR. OBAMA: RESIGN NOW

QUOTE:

Do Americans Have a Moral Conscience?

By Paul Craig Roberts

If the Obama regime does not hold the Bush regime
accountable for violating US and international law,
then the Obama regime is complicit in the Bush regime’s
crimes. If the American people permit Obama to look
the other way in order “to move on,” the American
people are also complicit in the crimes. Continue

Defining Moments in US History and their Relevance Today

By Charles Sullivan

It is beyond absurd to think of President Obama as
anything but a political conservative dressed in the
garments of liberalism and masquerading as a man
of the people. Obama’s voting record, his political
appointments, the money trail, and his policy decisions
reveal his true colors. So much for change we can
believe in. Continue

Chevron, Shell and the True Cost of Oil

By Amy Goodman

The economy is a shambles, unemployment is
soaring, the auto industry is collapsing. But profits
are higher than ever at oil companies Chevron
and Shell. Yet across the globe, from the
Ecuadorian jungle, to the Niger Delta in Nigeria,
to the courtrooms and streets of New York and
San Ramon, Calif., people are fighting back against
the world's oil giants. Continue

Exploding Debt Threatens America

By John Taylor

Standard and Poor’s decision to downgrade its
outlook for British sovereign debt from “stable” to
“negative” should be a wake-up call for the US
Congress and administration. Let us hope they
wake up. Continue

Torturing the Rule of Law

By Rep. Dr. Ron Paul

“Enhanced interrogation” as some prefer to call it, has
been used throughout history, usually by despotic
governments, to cruelly punish or to extract politically
useful statements from prisoners. Governments that
do these things invariably bring shame on themselves.

Another Outrage

By Cindy Sheehan

I have spoken to men who were still in their teens
who were sodomized with broom handles in
Guantanamo. I have seen the horrific photos
of the US’s inhumanity to man and cannot forgive
my country for the terror it has unleashed on
the world. I can’t stand the fact that our government
operates with such craven cowardice and has
harmed so many people while Americans revel
in blissful ignorance. Continue

Osama Bin Laden: Dead Or Alive?

By Tod Fletcher -

Review of a new book by David Ray GriffinGriffin
strikes at the root of this pretext for war by closely
examining all the evidence that has come out since
September 11, 2001, either indicating that bin Laden
is still alive or that he is in fact dead. Continue

He Kept Us Safe (Except When He Didn’t)

people brag about how they kept us safe from terrorists,
matrimonially inclined homosexuals, and other really
mean people. Continue

The Bases of Empire:

The Global Struggle Against U.S. Military Posts

There has been no public discussion by the

our overseas bases or beginning to scale back
our imperialist presence in the rest of the world.

The Next Leg Down

By Mike Whitney

Collapsing home prices and credit markets continue
to put downward pressure on consumer spending,
forcing the Federal Reserve to take even more radical
action to revive the economy. Last week, Fed chief
Ben Bernanke raised the prospect of further monetizing
the debt by purchasing more than the $1.75 trillion
of Treasuries and mortgage-backed securities (MBS)
already committed. Continue

Capitalism Produces Rich Bankers, Socialism Produces Happiness

By Phillip Bannowsky

When you consider that virtually no newspaper, broadcaster,
well-funded think tank, teacher, or anybody's boss or
commander ever said something nice about socialism,
it's remarkable that only 53 percent of us still favor rule
by the moneyed class. Perhaps folks are learning how
capitalism sacrifices happiness for individual gain. Continue

Are Investors in the US and Abroad Losing Faith in the Dollar?

By Mark Trumbull

Are US debtors, from the federal government to
the cash-strapped state of California, going to default?
Will the Federal Reserve resort to inflation — debasing
the value of dollar assets — in its efforts to lift a
debt-bound economy back to growth? Continue

Credit Default Swaps
The Poison in the System

By Mike Whitney

The question now is whether Congress will pull their
heads out of the sand long enough to do the people's
work and pass the laws that will re-regulate the system.
There is a remedy, but it requires action, and fast.
Without course-correction, the prospect of a derivatives
meltdown gets bigger by the day.Continue

flaws. Continue

Obama's Animal Farm

By James Petras

The Democratic Pigs are now pursuing the same
brutal, military policies of their predecessors,
the Republican Porkers, only now it is in the
name of the people and peace. Orwell might
paraphrase the policy of President Barack Obama,
as 'Bigger and bloodier wars equal peace and justice'.

Buyers Remorse

Is It Too Late To Swap Obama For McCain?

By Mike Whitney

I don't know about you, but I believe that America is
based on the idea that every man has certain basic
ights, and the most fundamental of all those rights
is the right to know why the state has thrown your
ass in jail. That's numero uno! It's called habeas
corpus and the whole judicial system rests on that
one foundation stone. People like Obama, who don't
believe in habeas, shouldn't even call themselves
"American" in my book because they don't believe
in the underlying principles. Continue

The Almighty Renminbi?

By Nouriel Roubini

Traditionally, empires that hold the global reserve
currency are also net foreign creditors and net lenders.
The British Empire declined — and the pound lost its
status as the main global reserve currency — when
Britain became a net debtor and a net borrower
in World War II. Today, the United States is in a
similar position. Continue

Health Care's Enigma in Chief

By David Sirota

The most stunning and least reported news
about President Obama's press conference with
health industry executives this week wasn't those
executives' willingness to negotiate with a Democrat.
It was that Democrat's eagerness to involve those
executives in a discussion about health care reform
even as they revealed their previous plans to pilfer
$2 trillion from Americans. Continue

Goodbye, GM

As I sit here in GM's birthplace, Flint, Michigan,
I am surrounded by friends and family who are

By Major General Smedley Butler, USMCWAR is a racket.

It always has been. It is possibly the oldest, easily
