The Subprime Nation Final Solution / Politics / US Politics

By: James_Quinn

The MSM did their usual spin job on the consumer credit data released earlier this week. They reported a 5.4% increase in consumer debt outstanding to an ALL-TIME high of $3.051 trillion. In the Orwellian doublethink world we currently inhabit, the consumer taking on more debt is seen as a constructive sign. Consumer debt has grown by 5.8% over the first nine months of 2013, after growing by 6.1% in 2012 and 4.1% in 2011. The storyline being sold by the corporate MSM propaganda machine, serving the establishment, is that consumers' taking on debt is a sure sign of economic recovery. They must be confident about the future and rolling in dough from their new part-time jobs as Pizza Hut delivery men. Plus, they are now eligible for free healthcare, compliments of Obama, once they can log-on.

Chained CPI Inflation Chains Taxpayers / Politics / Inflation

By: Dr_Ron_Paul

One of the least discussed, but potentially most significant, provisions in President Obama's budget is the use of the "chained consumer price index" (chained CPI), to measure the effect of inflation on people's standard of living. Chained CPI is an effort to alter the perceived impact of inflation via the gimmick of "full substitution." This is the assumption that when the price of one consumer product increases, consumers will simply substitute a similar, lower-cost product with no adverse effect. Thus, the government decides your standard of living is not affected if you can no longer afford to eat steak, as long as you can afford to eat hamburger.

U.S. Jobs Offshore Outsourcing is a Greater Threat Than Terrorism / Politics / Employment

By: Paul_Craig_Roberts

Is offshore outsourcing good or harmful for America? To convince Americans of outsourcing’s benefits, corporate outsourcers sponsor misleading one-sided “studies.”

Only a small handful of people have looked objectively at the issue. These few and the large number of Americans whose careers have been destroyed by outsourcing have a different view of outsourcing’s impact. But so far there has been no debate, just a shouting down of skeptics as “protectionists.”

How American Socialism “Works” / Politics / US Politics

By: Money_Morning

Shah Gilani writes: America isn’t a socialist country, but don’t tell our President that, or Congress, or the Fed, or the too-big-to-fail (TBTF) banks. Because to them, it is.

That’s because socialism works for them. And Hells Bells, it’s hard to knock what works.

If you can’t feel the yoke around your neck, or the bit in your mouth, trust me…you will.

Did Israel Kill Arafat? / Politics / Middle East

By: Stephen_Lendman

On November 11, 2004, Arafat died in a Paris hospital. He was 75. He was hospitalized for an undiagnosed illness.

After developing, it worsened. He deteriorated badly. He needed special care. On November 3, he slipped into a coma. Days later he died.

Previous articles discussed his death. It wasn’t accidental. It wasn’t natural. Credible evidence points to assassination.

End Of The Line For Iran Nuclear Crisis-Business / Politics / Nuclear Weapons

By: Andrew_McKillop

World news media reported, November 7, that epic change could soon be coming to the seemingly endless – and dangerous – business of goading Iran and trying to spark a nuclear war in the Middle East, only to please Israel and Saudi Arabia.

'Wall Street Journal', November 7, ran this headline: “Geneva—Iran and world powers expect to announce an initial deal as early as Friday to curb Iran's nuclear program in exchange for an easing of sanctions, a step that would mark the first breakthrough in a decade to blunt the threat of Tehran developing nuclear weapons”.

U.S. Government - The Greatest Threat to Life on Earth / Politics / US Politics

By: Paul_Craig_Roberts

“No legal issue arises when the United States responds to a challenge to its power, position, and prestige.” Dean Acheson , 1962, speaking to the American Society of International Law.

Dean Acheson declared 51 years ago that power, position, and prestige are the ingredients of national security and that national security trumps law. In the United States democracy takes a back seat to “national security,” a prerogative of the executive branch of government.

Drone War Prize Obama And The Islamic-Judaic Apocalypse / Politics / Nuclear Weapons

By: Andrew_McKillop

THE PROBLEM STARTS WITH WEAPONS OF MASS DESTRUCTION
As Nadeem wrote in his recent “US Drone War on Pakistan” the USA of Barack Obama, either wittingly or unwittingly, knowingly or not, has accelerated the final countdown in the tinderbox region called the MENA-Middle East and North Africa. To be sure this is a majority-Sunni muslim Arab region, but it also includes Iran and Israel. Europe is very close, like Turkey and Russia, making it what Halford John Mackinder called the “geographical pivot of history” and “the world island”.

Tara Clarke writes: Even if Obamacare hasn't altered your insurance coverage, it will affect your taxes. The new healthcare law brings the largest set of tax law changes this country has seen in more than 20 years.

According to the Government Accountability Office, the IRS must implement a total 47 statutory provisions under Obamacare. And Obamacare's $1 trillion in total tax increases will hit drug companies, Health Savings Accounts, health insurers, employer-based health insurance, and more.

U.S. Drone War on Pakistan, Selling Nuclear Weapons Consequences, Islamic Apocalypse Countdown / Politics / Nuclear Weapons

By: Nadeem_Walayat

The near silent war that the mainstream media rarely reports rages on in Pakistan as illustrated by the recent drone attack that killed the Taliban leader in North West Pakistan the day before the Pakistani government was to enter into peace talks with. Whilst many may claim so what it's just one terrorist killing another. However what the drone strikes mask is what is called collateral damage, which according to the Centre for Naval Analysis has to date killed close to 5,000 people of which 9 out of 10 were civilians.

U.S. Jobs Outsourcing Paradigm / Politics / Employment

By: EconMatters

China-US Wealth Transfer

There are usually unintended consequences from paradigm shifts, and the outsourcing paradigm of the last 25 years has been no exception. Where do you think all that wealth responsible for building all those cities in China came from? The United States, European and other developed countries of the world, think of it as a vast wealth transfer from the richer nations to the poorer nations mainly on the backs of the ‘middle of the bell curve’ in terms of jobs.

Obamacare, Affordable Care Act (ACA) Dysfunctional System Issues / Politics / US Politics

By: John_Mauldin

The Affordable Care Act is the single most contentious political action of my lifetime since the Vietnam War. It touches everyone in one way or another, and often in profoundly personal ways. Some see it is a godsend and others as an arrow aimed directly at the heart of the American experiment. Some will experience healthcare that is now available for themselves and their families for the first time, while others will experience the loss of a system that had served them well. The story in the Wall Street Journal this week of the cancer survivor Edie Littlefield Sundby, who lost her doctors and affordable care in the middle of a true life-and-death battle, is poignant. It turns out that not only can she not buy insurance that will cross state lines, she cannot buy insurance in California that will cross county lines!

It's Bubble Time in Britain, A Tragic Story / Politics / UK Politics

By: BATR

Some things are simply so funny that they can't help showing us hidden truths. As anyone who's ever read Mark Twain or heard Groucho Marx, among many many other voices, will gladly confirm, funny things can make you think, and even reveal tragedy. Not necessarily thigh slapping stuff, just funny things. Fumbling through the Guardian's webpages on Tuesday, I found what I find is a fine example of just that. Plus, in the very same edition, a bunch of articles that provide an equally fine perspective.

China Reaching Limits of its Economic, Politician and Social Model, Change is Inevitable / Politics / China

By: STRATFOR

Rodger Baker and John Minnich write: The Central Committee of the Communist Party of China will convene its Third Plenum meeting Nov. 9. During the three-day session, President Xi Jinping's administration will outline core reforms to guide its policymaking for the next decade. The Chinese government would have the world believe that Xi's will be the most momentous Third Plenary Session since December 1978, when former supreme leader Deng Xiaoping first put China on the path of economic reform and opening.
