Creating a Military State

Whats the Difference?

By James Rothenberg

The political parties serve their own interests, just as regular people do. And just as regular people are selfish (self-ish), so are the parties. They represent the will of the people to the extent that it can be useful to them.

Creating a Military State

By Andy Worthington

If lawmakers are successful, anyone regarded as a terrorist must be held in military detention, where, it is planned, they may be subjected to abuse with impunity, and, if required, held forever without a trial and without any rights.

Gang of Six Plan Gives Tax Breaks for Wealthy, Social Security Cuts for Ordinary Workers

Dean Baker, The Center for Economic and Policy Research: 'The budget plan produced by the Senate's 'Gang of Six' offers the promise of huge tax breaks for some of the wealthiest people in the country, while lowering Social Security benefits for retirees and the disabled. Despite claiming that they will 'reform' Social Security on a 'separate track, isolated from deficit reduction,' the plan includes cuts to Social Security that would be felt in less than six months, as the plan calls for a new inflation formula that will reduce benefits by 0.3 percentage points a year compared with currently scheduled benefits. The plan also calls for a process that is likely to reduce benefits further for future retirees.'

How the DoD Allows Contractors to Grade Themselves and Write Their Own Contract Terms

Dina Rasor, Truthout: 'The Department of Defense (DoD) Inspector Generals (IG) office recently found that the Marine Corps allowed their contractors for a vital troop protection system to act as government employees, including directing and evaluating government employees' work, grading their own work and writing up requirements for the follow-on contract. The contractors then bid on those requirements and won multimillion-dollar contracts.'

Pakistan: US drone attack kills four

CRI English [Chinese state media]

They also hate us for our hypocrisy

Future of Freedom Foundation
by Jacob G. Hornberger


The front page of today s New York Times details another instance of the rank hypocrisy that underlies U.S. foreign policy. According to the article, U.S. officials are hopping mad at their partner and ally, the Pakistani government, for trying to tilt U.S. foreign policy in favor of Pakistan s position in its longtime dispute with India over Kashmir. The feds have indicted two U.S. citizens over the matter...

Hillary cracks the whip
by Philip Giraldi


Who is Hillary Clinton to pronounce on the legitimacy of any foreign government? Victoria Nuland s condemnation of Syria cites 'beating, imprisoning, torturing, and slaughtering,' but doesn t Washington do all of that and more? Abu Ghraib, Guantanamo, CIA secret prisons, and Predator drone strikes surely tell the tale. No other government claims that it has the right to kill its own citizens anywhere in the world based on secret evidence...

The Fed and America s Financial Reckoning Day

by Pastor Chuck Baldwin

Today, our nation is sinking into bankruptcy, insolvency, and a serious financial reckoning day because our political class in Washington DC continues to load our posterity with perpetual debt and servitude. Most Americans are distressed, perplexed, and confused because of their 'downright ignorance' of sound money principles enshrined in our US Constitution and the evils of central banking. In 1910, a secretive cabal of Wall Street and international bankers conspired to create the Federal Reserve System, which became our nation s central bank in 1913.........


Wall Street Said No

Robert Scheer, Truthdig: 'So much for the meritocracy. Despite an elite education, effusive charm and brilliant wit, Barack Obama, like Bill Clinton before him, has ended up betraying his humble origins by abjectly serving the most rapacious variant of Wall Street greed. They both talk a good progressive game, but when push comes to shove - meaning when the banking lobby weighs in - big money talks and the best and the brightest fold. For Obama, it is his decision not to nominate Elizabeth Warren to run the new Consumer Financial Protection Bureau, which she fought so hard to create.'


Stopping the Train: Stopping the System

By Ron Jacobs
