La « promesse américaine » d’Obama, c’est la guerre. Barack Obama adhère à la « guerre mondiale au terrorisme » (GMAT).
CONFÉRENCE: Peter Dale Scott. Comment le 11 septembre a changé l'Amérique

Morgan Stanley's share price plunged by around 20% on Thursday as the US investment bank tried to strike a major deal or raise more cash.
Morgan Stanley is in talks to possibly be acquired by China's CITIC, sources in the U.S. and China have told CNBC.
Barry Jennings, a key 9/11 eyewitness who was an emergency coordinator for the New York Housing Authority, has passed away at age 53 from circumstances not yet disclosed.
Lehman Brothers Close Ties to Gore, Hansen and Carbon Trading
Al Gore’s carbon trading business GIM was banked with Lehman Bros. It will be interesting to see how this will play in the future but I suspect that this increases the risk of participating in Carbon trading. Merrill Lynch was also deeply involved in this business.
So, they were already relying on a gigantic scam to keep their finances afloat!
Mark Patterson, chairman of private equity fund MattlinPatterson, told an audience of financial experts at New York’s Waldorf-Astoria this week that the U.S. could suffer up to 500 bank closures and that the chances of a new great depression are now as high as 25 per cent.
The U.S. Treasury said it will sell an additional $100 billion in short-term debt to aid the Federal Reserve's balance sheet, amid the biggest extension of central- bank credit to financial companies since the Great Depression.
The Treasury today announced plans to sell $30 billion in 59-day bills at 11:30 a.m. tomorrow, $30 billion in 45-day bills at 1 p.m. tomorrow and $40 billion in seven-day bills on at 11:30 a.m. on Sept. 24.
It will be interesting to see how many of those 59-day bills actually get sold... and to whom.
The news on redemptions at Reserve Primary is certainly being kept low key. The only reference to it that I have seen was buried in the third paragraph of a Bloomberg story.
The Reserve Primary Fund lost more than 60 percent of its assets to redemptions this week,according to Bloomberg. Now that's a run on a money market fund.
The Federal Reserve almost quadrupled the amount of dollars central banks can auction around the world to $247 billion in a coordinated bid to ease the worst crisis facing financial markets since the 1920s.
The Fed increased the amount of dollars that the European Central Bank, the Bank of Japan and other counterparts can offer from $67 billion ``to address the continued elevated pressures in U.S. dollar short-term funding markets.'' The Bank of England, the Bank of Canada and the Swiss National Bank also participated.
To give you a sense of scale, NASA's entire budget for 2008 was just $18 billion.
The Federal Reserve, working with central banks in Europe, Canada and Asia, pumped as much as $180 billion into money markets on Thursday to combat a seizing up of lending between banks that is intensifying global financial crisis.
Let's see, that's another $180 billion (that's ten times the entire NASA budget) worth of inflation and higher prices for us all to pay, plus we are all on the hook for that $180 billion if the financial institutions it is handed to collapse.
I am not confident!
As the wrenching shifts within the American financial industry shook world markets on Wednesday, Morgan Stanley, one of the two major Wall Street banks left standing, was considering a possible merger with the Wachovia Corporation or another bank, according to people briefed on the discussions.
This may not work out. Wachovia has serious exposure to the Lehman debacle. They are not the heavy cash cow that Morgan needs.
The immediate aftermath of the Lehman Brothers bankruptcy will be a massive and manic flight to liquidity and withdrawal of funds and credit from banks, S&L's, insurance companies and brokerages, leading to more failures.
Nothing can stop it at this point.
Threatened by a "financial tsunami," the world must consider building a financial order no longer dependent on the United States, a leading Chinese state newspaper said on Wednesday.
The dollar just died, along with Bretton Woods.
FOR Scotland's oldest bank, it was the suddenness of its rout that stunned. That and the silence at the top. That and the invisibility of leadership. That and the short-selling frenzy that descended on HBOS shares yesterday, like vultures on a corpse.
Which is a real accomplishment when you own the printing press!
What's going on? Where is the money? How could this happen? Where are the checks and balances? How much more has gone missing? What would happen if a corporation failed to pass an audit like this? Or a taxpayer? Who is responsible for this? Would your banks continue to handle your bank account if you behaved like this? Would your investors continue to buy your securities if you behaved like this?
Remember the biggest new story of September 10th, 2001? Don Rumsfeld admitting that the Pentagon had lost $2.3 trillion (with a 't') of your tax dollars. That should have been the story of the decade, but lucky for ol' Don, just 24 hours later 9-11 wiped that story off of the front page, just as Flight 77 wiped out the very offices inside the Pentagon that were trying to find out just where all that cash had gone to!
The US central bank agreed to bail out the insurance giant American International Group with $85 billion in an unprecedented move aimed at propping up the influential company.
Health officials have called off plans for a study examining a controversial type of treatment that some autism activists have touted as alternative medical therapy for children with the condition.
The National Institute of Mental Health, or NIMH, part of the U.S. National Institutes of Health, said in a statement on Wednesday that it has canceled a study aimed at assessing the effectiveness of a treatment called chelation.
Memo to the folks at the National Institute of Mental health; in the immortal words of my wife's late grandmother, the horse is already out of the barn.
The following was reported relative to ABC's drama "Eli Stone", and the premiere episode featuring "a family attorney who successfully argues in court that mercury-containing flu vaccine caused autism in one child.",
The president of the American Academy of Pediatrics, Renee Jenkins, wrote ABC/Disney executives a letter demanding the episode be canceled because of the premise of the show.
As reported this last January at the following website:
"The Federal Government recently conceded a real vaccine-autism lawsuit in a real court and will soon pay a real (taxpayer-funded) settlement to a real American family and a very real child with autism......If I were the AAP, or ABC for that matter, I would feel downright silly stating that "no scientific link exists," so soon after the Journal of Child Neurology published a study titled, "Blood Levels of Mercury Are Related to Diagnosis of Autism: A Reanalysis of an Important Data Set." I would also worry about parental reaction to learning that researchers had done due diligence and reanalyzed data from a prior, hugely influential study that (erroneously) found zero connection between mercury levels and autism......
Another study, freshly out of Harvard, likewise shows a potential link between mercury and the autopsied brains of young people with autism. The American Journal of Biochemistry and Biotechnology reports that a marker for oxidative stress was 68.9% higher in autistic brain issue than controls (a statistically significant result), while mercury levels were 68.2% higher. ....
In the article, "Delay in DPT vaccination is associated with a reduced risk of childhood asthma," Anita Kozyrskyj, an asthma researcher at the University of Manitoba, and other scientists combed the medical records of 14,000 children born in Manitoba in 1995 (when many Canadian shots still contained mercury, by the way). They found that children who received the DPT (diphtheria, pertussis and tetanus) vaccine at two months of age were 2.63 times more likely to develop asthma (at a rate of 13.9%) than children who were not given the shot until after four months of age (5.9%)."
If the pharmaceutical and medical industries continue to deny that there is any connection between autism and mercury, they are not liable for the damage this chemical has caused. That's the truth, plain and simple.
Any study looking at the efficacy of chelation therapy as a remedy against the toxic affects of mercury is a study which, by definition, demonstrates that mercury preservatives in vaccines are a poison to kid's systems, and one of the manifestations of that poisoning is autism.
It's no wonder the pharmaceutical companies probably pressured the National Institute of Mental Health to call off the study.
We have news from the National Snow and Ice Data Center (NSIDC). They say: The melt is over. And we’ve added 9.4% ice coverage from this time last year. Though it appears NSIDC is attempting to downplay this in their web page announcement today, one can safely say that despite irrational predictions seen earlier this year, we didn’t reach an “ice free north pole” nor a new record low for sea ice extent.
The cultists, rather than surrender their faith in the Great God Gore, are whining that it only LOOKS like there is more ice; that the ice sheet may be larger, but it's thinner, much MUCH tinner, really paper thin, oh lordy it just HAS to be thinner. Really. Honest. No kidding.
On April 26, 2008, the BBC Alabama arrived in Longview, Washington carrying 6700 tons of Kuwaiti sand. The sand had become contaminated with depleted uranium when U.S. military vehicles and munitions caught fire at Doha Army base in Kuwait during the 1991 Gulf War. The depleted uranium was being repatriated. The sand was a gift of the Kuwaiti government.
