text Fed Chairman Bernanke holds theatrical press conference Zachary Karabell via huang, Wednesday, Apr 27 2011, 11:25pm
Yesterday, Ben Bernanke departed from the silent, opaque tradition of the Federal Reserve and held a press conference. The event attracted considerable attention, for its novelty as much as for its substance. But those hoping that Bernanke would do his best imitation of Willy Wonka and reveal hidden facets of humor, complexity and charisma were, to say the least, disappointed. (story and 3 comments)

libyan_oil_grab.jpg image 'US to recoup [steal] Libyan oil from China' staff report via major mitchell, Saturday, Apr 16 2011, 11:49pm
Corporatist Western media constantly portrays a number of Libyan CIA lackeys screaming into cameras that Gaddafi "must go!" -- Western propagandists are careful to present these orchestrated images/frames as the popular sentiment or the majority opinion of Libyans when in fact the OPPOSITE is true.

text The Federal Reserve Banking System’s War on Gaddafi quill, Thursday, Apr 14 2011, 8:59am
CIA backed ‘rebels’ in Benghazi have established a Reserve Bank -- complete with governor -- modelled after the infamous, PRIVATELY OWNED, ‘Federal’ Reserve Bank in New York City. It seems that certain Banking interests, JP Morgan and Goldman ‘carbon tax’ Sachs among them, cannot tolerate ANY nation that is not connected (enslaved) by its private Reserve Banking system.

The Libyan 'no-fly zone' established by America and its puppet allies via UN resolution 1973, by real definition, amounts to this: "No-Fly" actually means the US and NATO do ALL the FLYING and conduct air strikes unhampered by pesky nations defending their sovereignty!

President Integrity and Sincerity image Obama’s [Wall Street's] Unconvincing Case on Libya Matthew Rothschild via stan, Tuesday, Mar 29 2011, 10:39pm
Wall Street fails to make case via puppet President Obama for the Libyan intervention. Performer/Liar Obama did not address the issue of his war making powers during his belated speech to the nation on the Libyan military intervention [because he does what he's told]. He also failed to distinguish between Libya and other cases of urgent humanitarian need, such as Syria, Yemen and Bahrain. And he didn’t adequately address the question of 'overextending' the military, or face the crying social needs on the home front. (story and 1 comment and 1 image)

text Obama insists actions in Libya serve US [Corporate] interests Robert Burns via stylus, Wednesday, Mar 23 2011, 2:21am
The World certainly is AWARE that Corporate interests, which control Obama, Congress and the Pentagon, are being served by the current military intervention in North Africa. Libya is yet another US thieving intervention, pure and simple. A US puppet will soon be installed in the soon to be partitioned OIL rich Eastern area of the nation, [if regime change fails]. US criminal actions today are as transparent as wet toilet paper. (story and 1 comment)

text The Kosovo Solution for Libya corey, Sunday, Mar 20 2011, 9:56pm
Criminal western forces led by global bully America -- with double standards and searing hypocrisies blazing -- are moving militarily on the OIL RESERVES of Libya. The only ruffle in their plans is Gaddafi’s declaration of a ceasefire, which delays but will not thwart western plans to appropriate North Africa’s wealth. The EXCUSE for military intervention is the West’s 'concern' for the safety of civilians. Obama, from Washington, ‘demanded an end to civilian killing(!)’ -- while making this statement Obama and other clowns in Washington expect the entire WORLD to IGNORE American Drones killing civilians almost daily and that notwithstanding the historical FACT that not one American or NATO member has ever been held accountable for the first civilian HOLOCAUST of the 21st Century in Iraq – which would NOT have occurred but for the US/NATO invasion!

Gillard speech, boring! image Gillard grovels with relish in her speech to Congress snowy, Thursday, Mar 10 2011, 9:05am
In an unparalleled performance of complete subservience and subordination, Oz PM Julia Gillard, committed HERSELF (thankfully, she was not speaking for the majority of Aussies) to ALL America’s CRIMINAL wars without reservation. She indirectly praised the ideology of Wall St and the Federal Reserve system, which has ruined the global economy – a ‘minor’ detail for a sycophant -- and generally sucked even harder than Catherine the Great in her address to a joint-session of Congress.

The latest PATERNALISTIC, unnecessary, social intervention by Gillard’s -- the most unpopular Labor Government in Australian history -- emanates from yet another anal Labor minister who wishes to apply the RC ‘refused classification’ category, a Stephen Conroy invented euphemism for overt CENSORSHIP, to smartphone apps – what next? Give the Oz public a break and just piss off, or cop a hiding at the elections that would go down in history.

The world financial system is a total fraud. It is one gargantuan Ponzi scheme, no better than the one Bernie Madoff used to swindle his friends and neighbors, and thousands of times worse if you add up the total number of victims it has ripped off over countless generations.

text UN Votes Unanimously to Apply Sanctions on Gaddafi dasha, Saturday, Feb 26 2011, 10:53pm
The fact is these sanctions/actions occurred mainly because Gaddafi wouldn’t quietly surrender his oil fields to Western Corporate interests – gutless Russia and China watch from a distance. If anyone labours under the misapprehension that the U.S. is really concerned over the loss of innocent human life, just take a long hard look at the IRAQI CIVILIAN DEATH TOLL; the USA could CARE LESS for the lives of Muslim Arabs and North Africans. It demonstrates this almost daily with CONTINUING civilian killing DRONE ATTACKS on innocent Muslims in Pakistan, Afghanistan and Africa! Take a dose of hard reality before swallowing the propaganda and garbage you are fed by the Western Corporate media. (story and 1 comment)

CORPORATE puppet, President Obama, stated openly that the US is looking at all options including military intervention in Libya. So concerned is he over a few thousand casualties that he threatens military invasion -- GIVE THE WORLD A BREAK! There's the 'little' matter of over ONE MILLION DEAD CIVILIANS in Iraq -- the first holocaust of the 21st century -- which the USA is DIRECTLY responsible for; it is now public record that the invasion was orchestrated and based on LIES.

text Hackers Force Shutdown of Europe’s Largest ETS Carbon Con nano, Thursday, Jan 20 2011, 11:01pm
A digital attack in Europe’s fledgling $100 billion carbon market netted hackers over $38 million in carbon credits. The attack forced the shutdown of Europe’s entire ETS trading apparatus. To state that computer network security in various EU member States is uncoordinated and inadequate would be stating the obvious. Securing systems uniformly in diverse European States presents as a nightmare/joke.
