Occupy the Neighborhood: How Counties Can Use Land Banks and Eminent Domain

Ellen Brown, Truthout: ''An electronic database called MERS (Mortgage Electronic Registration Systems) has created defects in the chain of title to over half the homes in America. Counties have been cheated out of millions of dollars in recording fees, and their title records are in hopeless disarray. Meanwhile, foreclosed and abandoned homes are blighting neighborhoods. Straightening out the records and restoring the homes to occupancy is clearly in the public interest?. But how? New legal developments are presenting some innovative alternatives.''

Bill Moyers: Occupy a Cause

Bill Moyers, Moyers & Co.: ''What?s the common cause behind Occupy protesters? The Moyers & Company team visited the Occupy Wall Street site several times between October and December in 2011, visits that reveal real faces, real people, and a true common cause. In this premiere Bill Moyers Essay, Bill talks about their anger, not at the concept of wealth itself, but at the crony capitalists who resort to tricks, loopholes, and hard, cold cash for politicians to make sure insiders prosper.''

Protesters Demand Tougher Robo-Signing Settlement for Banks Making Record Executive Payouts

Mike Ludwig, Truthout: ''Federal officials this week are moving to finalize a settlement with banks over the 'robo-signing' scandal, and activists say several banks accused of processing fraudulent foreclosure documents in recent years made a record $144 billion in payouts to employees in 2011.''

Why All the Robo-Signing? Shining a Light on the Shadow Banking System

Ellen Brown, Truthout: ''The Wall Street Journal reported ... that the Obama administration was pushing heavily to get the 50 state attorneys general to agree to a settlement with five major banks in the 'robo-signing' scandal. The scandal involves employees signing names not their own, under titles they did not really have, attesting to the veracity of documents they had not really reviewed. Investigation is revealing that it did not just happen occasionally, but was an industry-wide practice ... and that it may have clouded the titles of millions of homes.''

Super PACs Are Making Their Rich Presence Felt in 2012 Campaigns

David Goldstein, McClatchy Newspapers: ''Free to flood a campaign with as much money as they can, these souped-up political action committees have already impacted the Republican presidential contest. Their sandbox won t be just the presidential race, either. Since the 2010 election, super PACs have more than tripled in number, and their largesse could shape some pivotal contests for the House and Senate, as well.''

The Apocalyptics

John Feffer, Foreign Policy in Focus: ''They are like a heavy metal band. Dress them up in black, put some Goth makeup on them, give them a name like The Apocalyptics, and they d fit right in with the head-banger crowd. After all, it s mostly doom and gloom with the Republican candidates, particularly when they start in on foreign policy. The lead singer for a while, Michele Bachmann, loved to croon about the world entering its final days.''

Conflict between rich, poor strongest in 24 years

How Washington and Big Business Colluded to Make the Rich Richer

Moyers & Co., Programming Announcement: ''This weekend Bill Moyers returns to television with Moyers & Company. In his first show, Bill explores how Washington made the rich richer at the expense of the middle class. On Friday, the premiere episode of Moyers & Company, Bill s guests, Jacob Hacker and Paul Pierson, authors of Winner-Take-All Politics: How Washington Made the Rich Richer And Turned Its Back on the Middle Class, argue that America s vast inequality is no accident, but in fact has been politically engineered.''

Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. in His Own Words


Amy Goodman, Democracy Now!: ''Today is the federal holiday that honors Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr.... While Dr. King is primarily remembered as a civil rights leader, he also championed the cause of the poor and organized the Poor People s Campaign to address issues of economic justice. Dr. King was also a fierce critic of US foreign policy and the Vietnam War. We play his 'Beyond Vietnam' speech ... as well as his last speech, 'I Have Been to the Mountain Top,' that he gave on April 3, 1968, the night before he was assassinated.''

US Ranks 27th in Social Justice

Jim Hightower, Other Words Blog: ''USA: We're No. 1!' Oh, wait: Iceland is No. 1. But we did beat out Poland and Slovakia, right? But go on down the rankings and there we are! No. 27, fifth from the bottom. So our new national chant is, 'USA: At Least We are Not Last!' ... Our bottom-of-the-heap ranking in social justice confirms the economic and political inequality that the Occupy movement is protesting.''

Jacob Hacker and Paul Pierson on Engineered Inequality


Bill Moyers, Moyers & Co.: ''In this show segment, Moyers & Company dives into one of the most important and controversial issues of our time: How Washington and Big Business colluded to make the super-rich richer and turn their backs on the rest of us.''

Throughout history, military attacks on sovereign nations have always meant death, destruction and chaos which don t end once invasion is complete. Look at Iraq, Afghanistan, Palestine, Vietnam, Northern Ireland, even World War II and the Cold War.
