NSA Arm of Your Friendly Neighborhood Totalitarian State / Politics / US Politics

By: Walter_Brasch

It makes no difference if Edward Snowden, who had fled to Hong Kong and revealed that the American government was spying upon American citizens, is a traitor or a hero.

Intelligence agencies from China, Russia, England, Israel, and maybe even Lichtenstein, probably already know that the National Security Administration (NSA) is collecting data of all the phone calls and emails of Americans, and linking them to conversations with foreign nationals. What is unsettling is that everything the NSA is doing is legal. Secret federal courts can issue secret warrants to agencies that maintain secret files.

Even Sesame Street Can't Ignore America's Economic and Social Collapse / Politics / US Politics

By: Jeff_Berwick

Things have gotten so bad in the US that Sesame Street has its first character, Alex, who has to try to deal with the torment of having his dad in jail. This, believe it or not, is par for the course for Sesame Street

Sesame Street has helped kids open up about all sorts of serious subjects that are commonplace in the USSA today, from hunger and divorce to their parents going off to commit terrorist acts on the part of the financial and political elite (military deployment). In fact, one in 28 children in the United States now has a parent in a rape camp (jail) -- more than the number of kids with a parent who is sent overseas to commit acts of terrorism (military).

The Cancer of Online Gambling, Really Toxicity / Politics / Online Gambling

By: Bloomberg

Las Vegas Sands Corp., Chairman and CEO Sheldon Adelson joined Bloomberg TV's Deirdre Bolton on "Money Moves" today to discuss why he's come out swinging against online gambling and said: "I think it is a train wreck. It's really toxicity. It is a cancer waiting to happen."

Adelson on poker being skill based: "That skill base is, in my opinion, just a bunch of baloney. To get a card is not skill base. I know people say it is skill based, but it's just so they can categorize it in a certain segment"

German Car Industry Says 'Nein Danke' To Carbon Correct / Politics / Climate Change

By: Andrew_McKillop

ENOUGH IS ENOUGH
Barack Obama, perorating and posing at the Brandenburg Gate felt obliged to put on his most somber look and gurgle a few lines about the glorious quest of all civilized countries, led by the US and Germany, fighting the menace of global warming. Obama has rebranded this the “struggle against bad weather” - possibly because there has been no warming of the Earth for over 10 years - but Germany's industrial chiefs call European Carbon Correct a suicide pact.

U.S. Creates Al Qaeda 2.0 in Syria: The Obama Administration is a “State Sponsor of Terrorism” / Politics / US Politics

By: Michel_Chossudovsky

A major transition in US counter-terrorism doctrine is unfolding.

While Barack Obama, following in the footsteps of  George W. Bush, remains firmly committed to waging a “Global War on Terrorism” (GWOT), his administration is now openly supporting selected rebel units in Syria which are part of the Al Qaeda network.

When the Scales Fall - U.S. Government is Losing Credibility / Politics / US Politics

By: Fred_Sheehan

That is both an obvious and a useless observation without a sense of the consequences. Maybe, there are none. Maybe, the accumulating doubt concerning Benghazi, IRS intrusions, and NSA confiscation of privacy are wearing thin. If the latter proves correct, how will the people express their disillusion: "Voting with their feet," so to speak? A glaring vulnerability is the gap between falling income and inflation. The government's numbers are propaganda, and seem to have worked. The Fed, Bureau of Labor Statistics, reporters, and the academics who are paid to polish Goebbelism into a scholastic veneer, state that annual price inflation is short of 2%. John Williams, proprietor of Shadow Stats, estimates that if the Bureau of Labor Statistics used the same methodology for calculating the CPI as in 1980, the monthly figure released and disseminated to the public would be 9.4% (as of November, 2012).

Why And How The Young Are Screwed / Politics / Social Issues

By: Raul_I_Meijer

Last week I read a few lines in a Dutch newspaper article about pensions that immediately took me back to something I wrote in early May about youth unemployment - especially in southern Europe, where it's often 50% or more -. There is a common thread that links pensions to employment to stimulus measures: the younger generations invariably get the short end of the stick. Until they don't, of course, for they have one thing going for them. Age. Before they can play that ace, however, their parents seem intent on milking them for all they got. And I can’t help finding that curious, because it’s not at all what parents say they want for their children.

NSA PRISM, Edward Snowden, Who Are The Real Traitors? / Politics / US Politics

By: James_Quinn

“I'm neither traitor nor hero. I'm an American.” - Edward Snowden

“If ye love wealth better than liberty, the tranquility of servitude better than the animating contest of freedom, go home from us in peace. We ask not your counsels or arms. Crouch down and lick the hands which feed you. May your chains set lightly upon you, and may posterity forget that ye were our countrymen.”  - Samuel Adams

G8 Meeting: Climate Change Laid To Rest / Politics / Climate Change

By: Andrew_McKillop

GLACIERS ADVANCE, GLACIERS RETREAT
Revealed by UK media shortly before the start of the G8 meeting near Lough Erne in Ulster, David Cameron's adviser for Europe, Ivan Rogers blocked moves from Germany and France to make climate change a major G8 agenda item.

Ritual whines that this meeting is yet another “last hope for an international agreement that could avert catastrophic climate change” have worn thin, very thin. The real world potential for any international climate change pact setting European-style ETS carbon taxes and tradable permits is zero and not worth talking about. Linked whining about “rising concern” that the UK government is watering down its climate change mitigation ambitions, the same way these are on the point of being watered down in Germany, other European countries and the European Commission, are also not worth talking about – because the die is cast and change is coming.

The Fourth Branch of Government is Killing Our Competitiveness / Politics / US Politics

By: Money_Morning

Greg Madison writes: The United States claims a position as a world leader in many fields. And in a few of those fields, it still is. We like to think of ourselves as leaders in business, the free market, the entrepreneurial spirit. But the country is falling further and further behind in key competitive areas, giving up a lot of ground in the past 10 to 13 years.

India's Energy Ties with Iran Unsettle Washington / Politics / Middle East

By: OilPrice_Com

India's relentless search for hydrocarbons to fuel its booming economy has managed the rather neat diplomatic trick of annoying Washington, delighting Tehran and intriguing Baghdad, all the while leaving the Indian Treasury fretting about how to pay for its oil imports, given tightening sanctions on fiscal dealings with Iran.

Governments Love Secrecy to Hide their Crimes and Totalitarian Ambitions / Politics / US Politics

By: Michael_S_Rozeff

"Governments, like married couples, are entitled to their secrets" has written Richard Cohen a few years back. Which secrets? Lines have to be drawn. A government shouldn't cover up crimes under the mantle of secrecy. It shouldn't conceal wrongful seizures and exercises of power. This government and the preceding one under Bush have concealed the fact that they were collecting information wrongfully, namely, information on private communications. The term "national security" cannot reasonably be invoked as an excuse for doing this because it's too vague, and almost anything can be construed as affecting "national security". The quest for catching terrorists cannot be offered as a reason because there are bounds on searches and invasions of privacy that have long standing and that specifically apply to government and policing activities. These governments have gone way beyond these bounds and then compounded their trespasses by attempting to keep them secret.

United Stasi of America through the Echelon Prism / Politics / US Politics

By: BATR

Signals collection has a long secretive and enigmatic history. The very definition of espionage implies spying, most closely associated with foreign sources. Since the Echelon network, the unified function of data retrieval became a given during the cold war. With the revelation of Prism, advances in sophisticated electronic devices and software algorithms provide a major leap. The article, Is PRISM the US version of Echelon?, sums up the evolution. "With this kind of setup and ambition to capture and evaluate private conversations (well, not so private now), makes Echelon that much more believable, and that PRISM is a reflection of the infamous project, but focused solely on the US."
