Barack Obama's Uncomfortable Itch Problem / Politics / US Politics

By: Joel_S_Hirschhorn

I finally figured out why Obama so often looks uncomfortable, impatient and annoyed. He never seems to be a regular guy. One who can enjoy his public opportunities at local eateries and indulge himself like a real American enthralled with delicious unhealthy foods. To joyously let loose and just be a happy black guy able to live in a millionaire´s McMansion and have a shot at being president after hardly learning how to be a senator. Why?

Hilary Clinton Knocks Out Barack Obama / Politics / US Politics

By: Joel_S_Hirschhorn

Now is the time for Hilary Clinton to take a bold position that in one brilliant, courageous stroke shows the nation that she is more willing to pursue true reforms of the two-party plutocratic political system than Obama is.

With this position she can reveal that all the Obama talk about change is just a clever campaign strategy to seduce people who rightfully are fed up with politics as usual.

Global Food Price Crisis Threatens Worldwide Starvation / Politics / Food Crisis

By: Richard_C_Cook

Rising worldwide food prices are resulting in shortages, riots and protests, promises by governments to expand food aid, expressions of concern by international bodies like the World Bank, and stress on household budgets even in developed countries like the U.S. Did this just “happen” or is there a plan?

US Fed To Blame for Global Food Crisis / Politics / Food Crisis

By: Mike_Whitney

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleThe stakes couldn't be higher for Ben Bernanke. If the Fed chief decides to lower rates at the end of April, he could be condemning millions of people to an agonizing death by starvation. The situation is that serious; there's no room for error. Food riots have broken out across the globe destabilizing  large parts of the developing world. China is experiencing double-digit inflation. Indonesia, Vietnam and India have imposed controls over rice exports. Wheat, corn and soya are at record highs and threatening to go higher still. Commodities are up across the board.

G7 Government Malfeasance Results in Huge Transfer of Wealth to Hard Asset Investors / Politics / Money Supply

By: Ty_Andros

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleThis week we are stating some very painful truths about what is unfolding. It is a story of BETRAYAL by the people who run the United States and G7. Make no mistake, I love the United States but despise the government as it embodies the definition of immorality, incompetence, greed and hubris. Government is very competent at gathering power over others and making money for the people who run it and their contributors.

Combined with the public schools which do not teach anything anymore, the government is a testament to institutionalized malfeasance on every level. Words have become MEANINGLESS to the general public as they no longer know the history of their forefathers or the definitions of the words they speak and hear. We truly have entered the time of George Orwell's 1984 Animal Farm . It is a sorry state of affairs.

Teachers Strike as Real Inflation is Far Higher than the CPI / Politics / US Economy

By: Nadeem_Walayat

Today saw the biggest teachers strike in 20 years as the Government tried to force teachers to accept a pay deal of 2.45% linked to the Consumer Price index (CPI) (2.5%) instead of the more recognised Retail Price Index (RPI) (4.1%). The CPI is the internationally standardised inflation measure that is designed so as to under report inflation and thus make the jobs of politicians and finance ministers easier when it comes to public sector pay deals.

Gordon Brown's Tax U-Turn as Anticipated- Your Fired! / Politics / UK Politics

By: Nadeem_Walayat

Gordon Brown bottles it again in the face of escalating revolt against the abolition of the 10% tax band that hit 5.3 million of Britains poorest workers. This hit at the core of the Labour Party's values of redistribution of wealth from the rich to the poor. As stated In last saturdays article Gordon Browns Abolition of the 10% Tax Band- Leadership Challenge? , that the logical thing for Labour to do would be a U-turn, otherwise the next election is as good as lost.

United States- Death Of An Empire / Politics / US Dollar

By: David_Vaughn

What do you do when you no longer believe in something? I used to believe that economically things would eventually bottom out but I now believe we are due for hard times longer than I originally imagined. There are so many factors and fundamentals that refuse to quiet down. Instead, these issues are continuing to grow with a snowball effect. The momentum just grows higher and higher.

Global Food Crisis- Hunger Plagues Haiti and the World / Politics / Food Crisis

By: Stephen_Lendman

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleConsumers in rich countries feel it in supermarkets but in the world's poorest ones people are starving. The reason - soaring food prices, and it's triggered riots around the world in places like Mexico, Indonesia, Yemen, the Philippines, Cambodia, Morocco, Senegal, Uzbekistan, Guinea, Mauritania, Egypt, Cameroon, Bangladesh, Burkina Faso, Ivory Coast, Peru, Bolivia and Haiti that was once nearly food self-sufficient but now relies on imports for most of its supply and (like other food-importing countries) is at the mercy of agribusiness.

Mining Industry Caves in to Fanatical Greens / Politics / Metals & Mining

By: Gerard_Jackson

Nikki Williams, chief executive of the NSW Minerals Council, is a grim example of why public relations exercises always fail against green fanaticism. Her response to the greens' phony claim that mankind is warming the planet is to surrender to these fanatics. ( The Australian , We can bury carbon dioxide forever , 9 March 2008). In other words, run up the white flag and issue yellow-striped jackets to the mining industry's executive. In my not-so humble opinion it's PR personnel who should be buried, preferably after they have been defenestrated.

Political log Rolling in Clinton Country / Politics / US Politics

By: Walter_Brasch

It was just an old-fashioned case of political log rolling. In this case, the Clinton campaign approached a Democratic county commissioner and held up a political carrot-if the commissioner, the only Democrat of the three commissioners, would endorse Sen. Hillary Clinton for the Democratic nomination, they would do their best to provide President Bill Clinton as a speaker in the commissioner's county.

Financial Collapse will End the Occupation of Iraq / Politics / Iraq War

By: Mike_Whitney

The US Military has won every battle it has fought in Iraq, but it has lost the war. Wars are won politically, not militarily.  Bush doesn't understand this. He still clings to the belief that a political settlement can be imposed through force. But he is mistaken. The use of overwhelming force has only spread the violence and added to the political instability.  Now Iraq is ungovernable. Was that the objective? Miles of concrete blast-walls snake through Baghdad to separate the warring parties; the country is fragmented into a hundred smaller pieces each ruled by local militia commanders. These are the signs of failure not success. That's why the American people no longer support the occupation. They're just being practical; they know Bush's plan won't work. As Nir Rosen says, “Iraq has become Somalia”.

US Fed Responsible for the Credit Crisis / Politics / Central Banks

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleThere has been a lot of talk in the news recently about the Federal Reserve and the actions it has taken over the past few months. Many media pundits have been bending over backwards to praise the Fed for supposedly restoring stability to the market. This interpretation of the Fed's actions couldn't be further from the truth.

Incompetent GP's Warned to Stop Ignoring Cancer Symptoms / Politics / NHS

By: N_Walayat

The Governments top cancer expert warned that GP's are failing to diagnose cancer symptoms in an interview with the Observer.

"Patients are dying of cancer because GP's are failing to identify their symptoms, the government's top cancer expert has warned. Professor Mike Richards said botched diagnoses were now 'a significant concern'. 'Ultimately it can mean that the cancer has progressed to a stage where it can't be cured,' he said. Failed diagnoses also meant that, when cancers were eventually spotted, particularly aggressive treatments, such as chemotherapy or surgery, had to be used. 'That could be a mastectomy rather than perhaps a breast conserving operation,' http://www.guardian.co.uk/society/....
