WSJ Wants Government Subsidies for Mainstream Media / Politics / Mainstream Media

By: MISES

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleJeff Harding writes: I almost choked when I read Lee Bollinger's op-ed piece in the Wall Street Journal advocating public financial support of the mainstream media. This is the Lee Bollinger who is the president of Columbia University and was recently named deputy chair of the New York Federal Reserve Bank. The article says more about the writer and the mainstream media than it does its subject matter. It is unbelievable and irresponsible that anyone in his position should seriously advocate subsidies for the press.

Homeowners Rebellion against Wall Street, Axing the Bankers Money Tree / Politics / Credit Crisis 2010

By: Ellen_Brown

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleOver 62 million mortgages are now held in the name of MERS, an electronic recording system devised by and for the convenience of the mortgage industry.  A California bankruptcy court, following landmark cases in other jurisdictions, recently held that this electronic shortcut breaks the chain of title, voiding foreclosure.  The logical result could be 62 million homes that are foreclosure-proof.

Why WikiLeaks Must Be Protected / Politics / US Politics

By: Submissions

John Pilger writes: On 26 July, Wikileaks released thousands of secret US military files on the war in Afghanistan. Cover-ups, a secret assassination unit and the killing of civilians are documented. In file after file, the brutalities echo the colonial past. From Malaya and Vietnam to Bloody Sunday and Basra, little has changed. The difference is that today there is an extraordinary way of knowing how faraway societies are routinely ravaged in our name. Wikileaks has acquired records of six years of civilian killing for both Afghanistan and Iraq, of which those published in the Guardian, Der Spiegel and the New York Times are a fraction.

U.S. Iraq Withdrawal Limited Options / Politics / Iraq War

By: STRATFOR

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleIt is August 2010, which is the month when the last U.S. combat troops are scheduled to leave Iraq. It is therefore time to take stock of the situation in Iraq, which has changed places with Afghanistan as the forgotten war. This is all the more important since 50,000 troops will remain in Iraq, and while they may not be considered combat troops, a great deal of combat power remains embedded with them. So we are far from the end of the war in Iraq. The question is whether the departure of the last combat units is a significant milestone and, if it is, what it signifies. Read full article...

Pakistan Floods Disaster and U.S. Humanitarian Warfare / Politics / Pakistan

By: Global_Research

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleFelicity Arbuthnot writes: .. to wade through slaughter ... and shut the gates of mercy on mankind." Thomas Gray (1716-1771.)

The scale of the disaster caused by the floods in Pakistan, is barely comprehensible. As Juan Cole has written, expressing near disbelief : "The submerged area of the country is as big as the United Kingdom, fourteen million Pakistanis are affected, two million are homeless." Six million need immediate relief, according to the UN., and thirty six thousand are suffering from acute diarrhoeal symptoms, with cholera already diagnosed. 1,600 are reported dead, with the number certain to multiply. Famine is a real possibility.

Massive Widespread Economic Pain Across America / Politics / US Politics

the United States is not kaput it is certainly withering away even as a rich upper class enjoys all the things that money buys.  There is massive, widespread economic pain inflicting a huge fraction of Americans who are unemployed, underemployed, relying on food stamps, losing their homes, and who are feeling totally insecure financially.  This maintains sluggish consumer spending that makes necessary economic growth impossible.

By: Rick_Rozoff

How to Thwart the Assassins of the American Dream / Politics / US Politics

By: Janet_Tavakoli

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleArianna Huffington's new book, Third World America: How Our Politicians are Abandoning the Middle Class and Betraying the American Dream, paints a grim picture of the State of the Union:

"Every day, Americans, faced with layoffs and tough economic times, are forced to use their credit cards to pay for essentials such as food, housing, and medical care -- the costs of which continue to escalate. But, as their debt rises, they find it harder to keep up with their payments. When they don't, banks, trying to offset losses in other areas, turn around, hike interest rates, and impose all manner of fees and penalties..." Third World America, (P. 77)
