Why Are Corporate Insiders Selling Their Shares?
Any time corporate executives and directors are heavily selling their company's stock there's reason for concern. And lately they've been doing just that. The last time insider selling was as high as it is now was in the period from late 2006 to late 2007. It was right after that insider-selling surge that the stock market began its long painful decline, says Charles Biderman, CEO of TrimTabs, an independent institutional research firm. Biderman believes that insider trades shoot higher when there's a disconnect between broad market opinions and what business executives feel in their gut. "When [insiders think] things are going better than most people think, they buy stock," he says. "When things are going worse than people think, they sell." That's to say, insiders have no crystal ball but they often have access to up-to-the-minute sales data as well as firsthand impressions from their sales managers — and that gives them an inside track on what's happening in the economy. When this special access leads them to be big sellers of their stock, well, it's a vote of no confidence in their employer's near-term future. Biderman has measured the ratio of insider selling to buying since 2004, and says historically the ratio is 7 to 1. (Insiders almost always sell more than they buy because they receive stock as part of their compensation.) Right now the ratio is 30, one of the highest he's recorded. November 2007 is the last time the ratio even came close, at 24.
Note: According to the New York Times, insider trading levels are at the "highest levels since the firm started keeping numbers in 2004." Why does this Time article state they were higher in 2006 to 2007? For a treasure trove of revealing reports from reliable sources on the realities of the Wall Street bailout, click here.
35 Million Americans on Food Stamps: 12 Percent of U.S. Population on Food Stamps Highest Since Records Kept in 1969.
There are a few statistics that you can look at to see actual human pain in the real economy. You can look at the recent stock market rally yet even a 50+ percent rally is unable to create jobs or stem the economic pain of those at the lower end of the economic spectrum. Looking at food stamp participation from the United States Department of Agriculture shows us a very disturbing picture. When we did a report on this in August of 2009 we had 34 million Americans on food stamps. In the span of one month, the number jumped by over a million.

The US attack on Iraq for the non-existent "nookular" bombs, and the pending attack on Iran for their equally non-existent bombs, has triggered a real arms race in the world, as countries realize that NOT having weapons of mass destruction means getting invaded.
Jose Alencar, who also served as defense minister from 2004 to 2006, said in an interview with journalists from several Brazilian news media that his country does not have a program to develop nuclear weapons, but should: "We have to advance on that."

President Barack Obama has quietly decided to bypass Congress and allow the indefinite detention of terrorist suspects without charges.
The move, which was controversial when the idea was first floated in The Washington Post in May, has sparked serious concern among civil liberties advocates. Such a decision allows the president to unilaterally hold "combatants" without habeas corpus -- a legal term literally meaning "you shall have the body" -- which forces prosecutors to charge a suspect with a crime to justify the suspect's detention.
Welcome, ladies and gentlemen, to George Bush's third term, brought to you by....President Barak Obama!
Patriot Act Provisions Get Obama Support
September 15, 2009, ABC News
The Justice Department has indicated that the Obama administration is in support of renewing [three] controversial sections of the USA Patriot Act that expire later this year. The provisions that will expire in December include Section 206, that allows "roving" wiretaps so FBI agents can tap multiple phones or computers (with court authorization) that a specific person (target) may use. Another expiring provision, Section 215, is the so-called "library provision," which allows investigators to obtain [library, medical, business, banking and other] records with approval from the

"Our job is to give people not what they want, but what we decide they ought to have."

White House Press Secretary Robert Gibbs had played down the possibility of government assistance for news organizations, which have been hit by an economic downturn and dwindling ad revenue.
They lied, they died. The corporate media's troubles are being blamed on the economy, but the truth is that the public saw the media stand shoulder to shoulder with the government and lie us all onto pointless wars of conquest.
They probably figured that after the victory, nobody would care how the war got started, but the best laid plans "gang aft agley, nn' lea'e us nought but grief an' pain" etc. The wars are disasters; quaqmires that are sucking down money and our children's lives, and the public rightly places much of the blame on a corporate media that abandoned their self-professed role as watchdogs on government abuse.
The corporate media has lost the trust of the public. Lost? Indeed they deliberately cast it away in exchange for a ride on Air Force One. They will not get that public trust back any time soon.
They SHOULD go out of business, as punishment for betraying the public trust.
So of course the government, whose water the media carries, will bail them out with your tax money.

With hardly any debate, a powerful Senate committee Thursday approved President Barack Obama's $128 billion request for military operations in
Senate panel chairman Daniel Inouye, D-Hawaii, would not say whether he believes $128 billion would be enough for military operations in the two countries.
"Well, we're taking the word of the administration," Inouye said after the panel session.
While Americans slip deeper into poverty, and homeless Vets sleep in our streets, more and more of our taxpayer dollars are being committed to these insane wars without end.
We only have one party in this country, and that's the War Party, which controls both houses of congress, and have for some time.
And wars are great... if you're a defense contractor, or a senator or congressional representative who has been "acquired" by a major defense contractor or two, through overt and covert campaign contributions.

Iran's newly revealed uranium enrichment plant is a heavily guarded, still-unfinished underground facility in the arid mountains near the holy city of Qom that will be able to produce nuclear fuel — or the payload for atomic warheads, Western intelligence officials and diplomats said Friday.
