Oldest known star appears older than the universe itself According to a newly released report, an aging star — dubbed HD 140283 — lies 190.1 light-years away from Earth and is reportedly 14.5 billion years old. The problem? The calculated age of the universe is about 13.8 billion years.
Another reason to doubt the orthodoxy of the Big bang theory.
France's Louvre-Lens Museum shut two galleries Friday after a woman scribbled with a black marker pen on its star painting, Eugene Delacroix's "Liberty Leading the People."
Police were questioning a 28-year-old woman who was arrested Thursday evening after writing "AE911" across a 30 cm section at the bottom of the work, a judicial source said.
"AE911Truth" is the name of a website called "Architects & Engineers for 9/11 Truth" whose backers say they are seeking to establish the truth of the Sept. 11 suicide airliner attacks on New York's Twin Towers.
Folks, this is an obvious psy-op to demonize the 9-11 truth movement without having to actually address the serious questions raised by citizen investigators. I know you all know not to do things like this.
War By Deception 2013, by Ryan Dawson, is low budget, but filled with clear evidence for Mossad, CIA and Zionist or dual Israeli citizen involvement in 9/11. It is possible of course that these dual citizens or hard core American Zionists were just used to construct the official story. Maybe at least a few really do believe the official story and were not in on the cabal. Regardless, he shows how the 9/11 Commission's conclusions were predetermined by necons in the Bush administration.
On February 25, in the small town of Horsham in the United Kingdom, there will be a rare and potentially groundbreaking opportunity for the 9/11 truth movement. Three hours of detailed 9/11 evidence is to be presented and considered in a court of law where the British Broadcasting Corporation (BBC) will be challenged over the inaccurate and biased manner in which it has portrayed the events and evidence of 9/11.
Over the last 16 months, BBC has been challenged strongly by individuals in the UK over two documentaries that they showed in September 2011 as part of the tenth anniversary of 9/11, namely ‘9/11: Conspiracy Road Trip’ and ‘The Conspiracy Files: 9/11 Ten Years On’. Formal complaints were lodged with BBC over the inaccuracy and bias of these documentaries, which, according to 9/11 activists, was in breach of the operating requirements of BBC through their ‘Royal Charter and Agreement’ with the British public. This document requires BBC to show information that is both accurate and impartial. These complaints were supported by the US-based educational charity Architects & Engineers for 9/11 Truth (AE911Truth), which submitted detailed scientific evidence to BBC to buttress the complaints. The evidence focuses in particular on the confirmed free-fall of WTC 7 and NIST's 2008 admission of this fact. In addition, over 300 AE911Truth petition signers supported these complaints by sending letters to BBC, requesting that BBC show this evidence to the public.
At 21:54 GMT on 9/11/2001 the BBC announced that WTC 7 had collapsed. There was just one problem with this news: WTC 7 did not collapse until 22:20 GMT.
A new generation of al-Qaeda offshoots is forcing the Obama administration to examine whether the legal basis for its targeted killing program can be extended to militant groups with little or no connection to the organization responsible for the attacks on Sept. 11, 2001, U.S. officials said.
In other words, Obama just potentially painted a target on the back of every single America.
The number of anti-government groups in the United States is at an all-time high and has increased 800 percent since President Barack Obama took office
A new al-Qaida “guidebook” for extremists aims to incite homegrown “lone wolves” into carrying out small-scale terrorist attacks inside the United States and other Western countries, using materials as easily obtainable as motor or cooking oil, sugar and matches to trigger massive traffic accidents, devastating fires and deadly explosions.
Ever notice that when the corporate media are reporting these "Islamist website" they never include the URL for you to check it out for yourself?
Thanks to a reader, we have the URL for this supposed "Al Qaeda" (Arabic slang for a toilet) magazine! http://azelin.files.wordpress.com/2013/03/inspire-magazine-issue-10.pdf
This article features Adam Gadahn, who is a well-known faker. His real name is Adam Pearlman and his grandfather was on the board of directors of the ADL. If you trim the URL for the magazine back to its domain, http://azelin.files.wordpress.com, it redirects to http://jihadology.net/, meaning it isn't really a wordpress site. http://jihadology.net/ is registered through Domains by Proxy in Scottsdale Arizona. Domains by Proxy was set up to allow intelligence agencies to create bogus websites and conceal their identity by evading the ICANN rules which require identification of website owners for the whois lookup system, which had become a major embarrassment to previous bogus websites created for propaganda purposes!
Video demonstrates clearly how agent provocateur-police officers frame peaceful demonstrators to get them arrested. On this video, an undercover cop pushes a non-violent bystander (a journalist according to the video) against uniformed police officers to get him arrested, and then the masked provocateur leaves the scene without the cops bothering him/her.
The U.S. Department of Homeland Security has customized its Predator drones, originally built for overseas military operations, to carry out at-home surveillance tasks that have civil libertarians worried: identifying civilians carrying guns and tracking their cell phones, government documents show.
The documents provide more details about the surveillance capabilities of the department's unmanned Predator B drones, which are primarily used to patrol the United States' northern and southern borders but have been pressed into service on behalf of a growing number of law enforcement agencies including the FBI, the Secret Service, the Texas Rangers, and local police.
I have warned our readers frequently that the extrajudicial assassinations greatly favored by this administration as its favored method of war are not going to stay in places like Pakistan, Yemen, Somalia, or Afghanistan.
It is not too far a leap of "logic" from believing that the President has the right to extrajudicially assassinate Americans abroad to doing the same thing right here in the USA.

Police Drug Lab Scientist Arrested For Purposely Producing False Positives On Drug Test, Puts 1100 Innocent in jail
Drone aircraft are used heavily by the military in countries such as Afghanistan, but their usefulness for monitoring large areas from the air have also seen them considered for service closer to home. The dangers of drones regularly flying across our skies aren’t limited to privacy concerns, though. Evidence of that can be seen in New York, where an unidentified drone came dangerously close to a passenger aircraft as it was coming in to land.
This near miss underscores why drones are a failure for any purposes of law enforcement. A single aircraft crash linked to collision with a drone will create a public outcry demanding all drones be scrapped, or severely limited to cases of demonstrated need, such as a hostage situation. Random flights around the skies peeking in windows in the hopes of catching someone doing something bad will not be tolerated.
Lakota declares its Sovereignty
Pyongyang announced Friday that it is nullifying non-aggression pacts with South Korea and cutting the hotline with its neighbor. It comes after the UN Security Council adopted a resolution expanding sanctions against North Korea.
North Korea “abrogates all agreements on non-aggression reached between the North and the South,” the state-run Committee for the Peaceful Reunification of Korea said in a statement.
“It notifies the South side that it will immediately cut off the North-South hotline,” said the statement, which was carried by the official Korean Central News Agency. They are also closing the main Panmunjom border crossing inside the Demilitarized Zone
The Russian Defense Ministry sources said Saturday, the Russian military is discussed in June this year, the Russian Pacific Fleet and Beihai fleet at sea the Chinese naval real live-fire exercises, exercise locations in Japan Haidabide Bay; in addition, the Russian " peace mission in -2013 " air army joint military exercises are high-level multiple round
Russian nuclear forces conducted a major exercise last month that tested the transport of both strategic and tactical nuclear weapons near Europe, according to United States officials.
The exercise raised concerns inside the Pentagon and with the U.S. European Command because it was the largest exercise of its kind in 20 years and involved heightened alert status of Russian nuclear forces.
The nuclear drills were part of other military maneuvers in Russia carried out between Feb. 17 and Feb. 21.
Some 4,000 Soldiers of the 2nd Brigade Combat Team, 1st Infantry Division, out of Fort Riley, Kan., are training for realignment to U.S. Africa Command, expected later this year.
The 2nd BCT, or “Dagger” Brigade as it is known, will be the first brigade to be regionally aligned to U.S. Africa Command, or AFRICOM.
U.S. Pacific Command has had units regionally align to its area of responsibility with similar training at Fort Irwin earlier this year.
Translation: the US government is going into Africa to martial Africa's resources for the US, and keep them away from China.
Chavez also made the hemisphere much more dangerous by making Iran an ally and allowing Hezbollah to operate inside Venezuela.
FOX News is pounding on this issue of Hezbollah being inside Venezuela, which signals that the US is going to invade Venezuela "To Fight Terror" but to actually gain control of the oil, the gold, and the uranium, and to get rid of Chavez' silly notion that the wealth of the nation belongs to the people of the nation.
Russian Communist Party head Gennady Zyuganov today demanded an international investigation into the death of Venezuela’s Hugo Chavez, claiming it was “far from a coincidence” that six leaders of Latin-American countries who had criticized the U.S. simultaneously fell ill with cancer.
“How did it happen that six leaders of Latin American countries which had criticized US policies and tried to create an influential alliance in order to be independent and sovereign states, fell ill simultaneously with the same disease?” Zyuganov told Russian state television, urging an investigation under “international control” into Chavez’s death.
Zyuganov is accurate so far as his claim that six Latin-American leaders were diagnosed with cancer within a relatively close period of time, most notably Argentina’s President Cristina Fernández de Kirchner, who was diagnosed with thyroid cancer in December 2012, although later analysis proved that she had never actually suffered from the illness.
Current Brazilian President Dilma Rousseff, Paraguay’s Fernando Lugo, and the former Brazilian leader Luiz Inácio Lula da Silva, have all been hit with cancer in the last few years. In 2006 it was also reported that retired Cuban leader Fidel Castro was also diagnosed with cancer.
Zyuganov’s comments follow similar rhetoric by Venezuelan Vice President Madurs, who in the hours before the announcement of Chavez’ death accused “the historical enemies of our homeland” of being responsible for Chavez’ cancer, claiming that Yasser Arafat had also been “inoculated with an illness.”
Hugo Chavez himself once speculated that the United States had a cancer weapon after being diagnosed with the disease in 2011. “Would it be so strange that they’ve invented the technology to spread cancer and we won’t know about it for 50 years?” he stated.
“Fidel [Castro] always told me, ‘Chávez take care. These people have developed technology. You are very careless. Take care what you eat, what they give you to eat … a little needle and they inject you with I don’t know what,’ Chavez added.
The fact that Chavez was almost certainly the target of numerous CIA assassination plots has bolstered the belief amongst some that his cancer could have been surreptitiously induced as a means of unseating Chavez from power, successfully achieving what a 2002 coup failed to accomplish.
US corporate-financier funded think-tank, the American Enterprise Institute (AEI), declared in its "post-Chávez checklist for US policymakers," that the US must move quickly to reorganize Venezuela according to US interests. Upon its checklist were "key demands":
The ouster of narco-kingpins who now hold senior posts in government
The respect for a constitutional succession
The adoption of meaningful electoral reforms to ensure a fair campaign environment and a transparent vote count in expected presidential elections; and
The dismantling of Iranian and Hezbollah networks in Venezuela
We bring to the attention of Global Research leaders this Haaretz article that outlines how Argentine president Cristina Fernandez de Kirchner diplomatically warned how a terrorist attack in Argentina could be be the world of Israel. Kirchner made the remarks while in a confrontation with pro-Israel Jewish leader Guillermo Borger, who she said was in contact with a ”foreign espionage agency that knows of a new terror attack planned against Argentina.” What Kirchner meant by “foreign espionage agency” was none other than the Mossad.
Thousands of Haitian victims of a cholera epidemic widely believed to have been caused by United Nations peacekeepers vowed to continue their fight to hold the UN to account after it rejected their claims for compensation, citing diplomatic immunity.
More than 8,000 Haitians have died from the epidemic and 500,000 people, some 5 per cent of the population, have fallen sick since the disease entered the impoverished Caribbean nation’s water system in October 2010.
Although Haiti has suffered from disasters and epidemics of many varieties, it had been spared cholera for more than 200 years until the arrival of Nepalese peacekeepers in the Mirebalais region, north of Port-au-Prince, in 2010.
As successive investigations have concluded, the peacekeepers’ base was not provided with efficient sanitation, and soon contaminated waste began flowing into the Meille river, the main source of drinking water for nearby villagers.
Talk about adding insult to injury!
Canada Prepares For Martial Law, Economic Collapse: RCMP Armored Trucks – More Proof Of The Militarization Of The ‘North American Union’?
You have got to check out this video below from our brothers in the ‘Great White North’ of the ‘war’ vehicles recently purchased by the Royal Canadian Mounted Police. This video will take you up close and personal as the creators of the video, the Canadian Awareness Network, gain access to check out these vehicles for a first hand inspection.
This clearly shows that America is not the only North American country being heavily ‘militarized’. Is this more proof of the coming North American Union? What will the govt in Canada be using these vehicles for, hostage situations as the govt states or economic collapse and martial law? After watching the video, please let me know what you think. “If people don’t see the walls being built around them, I’d say they’re quite naive.” First, a bit of background on this video/story from the Canadian Awareness Network.:
Not too long ago the new department of homeland security armored vehicles hit the streets of America. The vehicles are massive and are built for nothing short of all out war.
Now the RCMP is rolling out their new armored personnel carriers according to a Navistar Defense Canada press release.
The models being employed by the RCMP will look more like this one.
The RCMP version comes with multiple gun ports, and can carry a full tactical team.
Former high-level Greek diplomat Leonidas Chrysanthopoulos told the UK’s New Statesman last week that discussions had taken place between senior Greek politicians and the armed forces on the military’s response to what Chrysanthopoulos described as an “explosion of social unrest” expected to occur “quite soon.”
Chrysanthopoulos said that in the coming months, “There will be further increases in armed actions. There will be bloody demonstrations.”
Without giving details, he said, “There are contacts by certain politicians with elements in the armed forces to guarantee that in the event of major social unrest, the army will not intervene.”
What the article fails to mention here is that the Greek government has hired the notorious private military firm Academi (formerly known as Blackwater) to protect themselves from a furious Greek electorate:
"Chrysanthopoulos says that the government has hired Blackwater, the American private military firm infamous for its activities in Iraq, which now goes by the name 'Academi', along with five other international for-profit security outfits. Explaining why this has happened, he says bluntly: 'The Greek government does not trust the police whose salaries have also been cut.'
Coming soon to the US?
President Barack Obama has the authority to use an unmanned drone strike to kill US citizens on American soil, his attorney general has said.
Eric Holder argued that using lethal military force against an American in his home country would be legal and justified in an "extraordinary circumstance" comparable to the September 11 terrorist attacks.
"The president could conceivably have no choice but to authorise the military to use such force if necessary to protect the homeland," Mr Holder said.
His statement was described as "more than frightening" by Senator Rand Paul, a Republican from Kentucky, who had demanded to know the Obama administration's position on the subject.
"It is an affront the constitutional due process rights of all Americans," said Mr Paul, a 50-year-old favourite of the anti-government Tea Party movement, who is expected to run for president in 2016.
On Thursday we learned that the U.S. trade deficit widened in January by a surprising 16 percent, to $44.4 billion. The $6.3 billion increase was almost entirely the result of a sudden spike in oil imports. Excluding crude, the deficit was basically flat at around $20 billion, according to Bloomberg.
What makes this so odd is that the U.S. is in the midst of a long-term trend of reducing its dependance on foreign oil. By the end of 2012, the U.S. was importing just over 8 million barrels of crude per day, about 25 percent below the peak in August 2006 of 10.7 million. Yet, in January, the U.S. imported $24.5 billion worth of oil, up from $21.2 billion in December
The number of Americans designated as “not in the labor force” in February was 89,304,000, a record high, up from 89,008,000 in January, according to the Department of Labor. This means that the number of Americans not in the labor force increased 296,000 between January and February.
The increase marks the second month in a row, after rising in January from 88.8 million in December. Those not in the labor force had declined in December from 88.9 million in November.
Unflipping believable!!And with the way the Federal government is running this economy, it most likely is going to get worse, until we are looking at either a world war, or a total collapse of the US economy.
Hundreds of thousands of people have taken part in protests across Portugal against government austerity measures.
The global economic crisis is staged: Unemployment skyrockets in the EU – Incomes crash in the USA – China ‘fully prepared’ for currency war – Billionaires, traders, and hedge funds are betting against economy, stock markets and currencies
Economic statistics released this week reflect a further weakening of the world economy and a further fall in the living standards of the international working class.
Reports on unemployment, manufacturing activity, economic growth and personal income in Europe, China and the United States point to an overall slowdown in economic growth and a rise in unemployment and poverty.
It’s a place where angels fear to tread; where criminals, frauds and mysterious corpses turn up as regularly as rats in the metro. The Institute for Works of Religion, commonly known as the Vatican bank, was set up in 1942 by Pope Pius XII to manage the vast Vatican finances. Often referred to as the world’s most secret bank, the operation is run by a CEO and overseen by five cardinals who report directly to the Pope.
The bank’s official role is to safeguard and administer property intended for works of religion or charity. The actual activities of the bank are somewhat different. They include money laundering for narcotics traffickers, bribery, skimming charitable funds to enrich priests, and tax evasion for wealthy Italians.
The scandals associated with the Vatican bank, particularly over the last four decades, are so sordid and improbable as to strain the creativity of a supermarket tabloid. The Church’s past offenses of selling indulgences and charging fees for sacraments have been updated for the world of modern finance, complete with shell companies, speculation and secret transfers. (For more on the antecedents of the current bank, see Betty Clermont’s handy synopsis at Daily Kos.) Last year, Italian journalist Gianluigi Nuzzi published a book delving into the intrigue and corruption swirling in a bank that has been answerable to no one. It was an eye-opener.
In May 2012, Pope Benedict XVI’s butler was arrested for leaking documents bristling with claims of financial corruption and criminal activity involving major Italian companies. The last Vatican bank chairman, Ettore Gotti Tedeschi, was shown the door when it was revealed that the bank was running afoul of international money-laundering standards. Leaked material and reporting reveals a bank that appears to be a kind of rogue offshore vehicle favored by various kinds of miscreants, including right-wing politicians, mafia types and tax evaders who wish to hide their financial transactions. Kind of like HSBC, only with God’s imprimatur.
Subsequent investigations have resulted in a shutdown of credit card transactions at all Vatican venues; right now, God can only take cash. In an attempt to restore relations with the international financial community, outgoing Pope Benedict appointed a new director of the bank, German lawyer Ernst von Freyberg, as one of his final acts. So far that’s not looking so good, as Freyberg has been revealed to have unfortunate links with a company with a history of making warships, including those produced for Nazi Germany.
UK workers suffer sharpest wage fall of any developed country as business leaders warn the pain is far from over
British workers have seen their wages plummet faster than any other workforce in a developed economy, a new study reveals today.
Real wages dropped by 4.5 per cent between 2007 and 2011, leaving workers with smaller incomes at a time of rising costs for basic necessities such as food, fuel, gas and electricity - not to mention housing costs.
This marks a considerably sharper squeeze than the 2.7 per cent fall in Italy or 0.7 per cent drop in Japan, according to the report from the TUC.
Today John Embry told King World News that in the silver market there will be a force majeure on the COMEX because of the massive short positions held by JP Morgan. But first, here is what Embry, who is chief investment strategist at Sprott Asset Management, had to say regarding gold: “I’ve been following the gold scene for 30 years, and I believe it’s been subject to a suppression scheme for probably the last 25 years. But I have never seen anything quite like what’s gone on lately.”

A Double Digit Correction On The Horizon? January Factory Orders Confirm Manufacturing Slump Continues, Eurozone Faces Worst GDP Contraction Since 2009. BofA: NYSE Margin Debt Is Generating A Sell Signal We Haven't Seen In Three Years
An influential group of leading world banks warned Thursday that central banks are pumping out too much easy money and markets risk becoming dangerously addicted to ultra-low interest rates.
The Institute of International Finance, which groups 450 banks, said that if central banks continue to flood money into the global economy, then any future bid to get it under control could itself destabilize the financial system.
The number of homeless people sleeping in New York City shelters has risen to a record of more than 50,000 people a night, according to a new report.
State and local governments nationwide have struggled to accommodate a homeless population that has changed in recent years - now including large numbers of families with young children. As the WSJ reports, more than 21,000 children - an unprecedented 1% of the city's youth - slept each night in a city shelter in January, an increase of 22% in the past year; as homeless families now spend more than a year in a shelter, on average, for the first time since 1987. New York City has seen one of the steepest increases in homeless families in the past decade, advocates said, growing 73% since 2002, and "is facing a homeless crisis worse than any time since the Great Depression."
Secretary of Defense Chuck Hagel met with Israeli Defense Minister Ehud Barak on Tuesday at the Pentagon to reassure him that the diplomatic window on Iran is closing and that, despite tough fiscal times in Washington, exorbitant amounts of aid to Israel would not be affected.
According to the Pentagon, “Secretary Hagel expressed his strong commitment to Israel’s security, including maintaining Israel’s qualitative military edge and continued US support for missile and rocket defense systems in spite of fiscal constraints.”
At a time when sequestration is about to take a big bite out of the Pentagon budget, the American Israel Public Affairs Committee (AIPAC) will be sending thousands of its citizen lobbyists to Capitol Hill next week to make sure Israel is exempted from any spending cuts.
This could prove a very risky strategy at a time when millions of Americans will be feeling the bite of the sequestration debacle, from the defense budget to the school lunch program.
But not aid to Israel, which will be untouched if AIPAC gets its way.
Reader comment: You, the American people, must make do with less so that a foreign country, Israel, can have more. All you veterans out there, your benefits are getting cut as well. You homeless vets out there, continue to sleep in the streets. Hell, I will say this. If the destruction of the United States were pending, and the ONLY way to stop it is to cut welfare to Israel, then those creatures in congress would let the US be destroyed. All for that usurping, predatory, illegal bandit state of Israel.
Last year it was announced the U.S. was looking to build a secret underground complex in Israel. On February 13 a contract was awarded to Conti Corp Federal Services in Edison, NJ to complete the project.
Their bid of almost $63 million came in well below the possible $100 million set aside for the project.
Paul B. Farrell: Looking back 800 years, we now know bull-bear cycles are inevitable. Right now, the cycles are again peaking, will crash, making the right exits, then the next entrance.
Warning: Forget the cuts, your brain is sequestered. That’s the real problem: Your brain. That’s why the economy and markets will crash, a new Dow high notwithstanding. Why it’s inevitable. Bigger crash than 2008. Longer afterwards. No bank bailouts. Austerity worse than the Great Depression. Hunker down.
Listen closely: America’s big problem is our “sequestered” brains. Meaning: “to remove, isolate, set apart, retire, withdraw into solitude.” Think post-trauma stress, paralysis, amnesia, lobotomized, entranced, just plain irrational. You’re out of it, incapable of acting rational.
The Fed balance sheet will likely be $5 trillion in toxic assets by the end of 2014.”
“It’s kind of like Enron. When it falls apart, then you realize what level of corruption and deceit was really taking place. . . . It’s a trillion times worse than Enron.”
The 17-nation eurozone sank further into recession in the last three months of 2012 as the debt crisis continued to exact a heavy price, official data showed Wednesday.
The eurozone economy shrank 0.6 percent in the fourth quarter of 2012 compared with the third quarter when it contracted 0.1 percent, the Eurostat data agency said, confirming initial estimates given in February.
For the full 27-member European Union, the economy was 0.5 percent smaller in the fourth quarter after a marginal gain of 0.1 percent in the third, Eurostat said.
A recession is counted as two consecutive quarterly economic contractions.
IF any EU member nations skid out of control and the Euro fails as a currency, it will take the US right along with it.
A Simple Example That Should Make It Crystal Clear That ALL Fiat Currency Today is COUNTERFEIT Money
If you had kept $20,000 in a bank savings account since 1913, you would still only have $20,000 dollars in your bank account. But remember that in 1913, one would have been able to buy a very large house with $20,000 whereas today, one can not even buy a decent new car with $20,000. Obviously, the nominal amount of dollars has no meaning and accumulating significantly more dollars does not make one richer as many American foolishly believe today. To buy the same $20,000 house one could buy in 1913, since bankers have destroyed 98% of the purchasing power of the 1913 dollar with their counterfeiting efforts over the last 100 years, one would now need 50X the amount of 1913 $20,000 dollars today, or a whopping $1,000,000 2013 dollars just to buy the same house that $20,000 could have afforded you in 1913.
Another way of stating that is even if you had $999,999 2013 dollars versus only $20,000 1913 dollars, you would still be poorer today than you were in 1913, an astounding fact.
It’s an odd question, we know – especially ahead of today’s Stress Tests, but given today’s testimony on assessing the bank secrecy act, apparent trouble-maker Elizabeth Warren pokes and prods (correctly we would add) at the surreality that exists between the Department of Justice, The Treasury, and the financial system. David Cohen, Tom Curry, and Jerome Powell dodged bullets and blame, “does that mean essentially we have a prosecution-free zone for large banks in America?”
But Warren wasn’t going to be fobbed off with useless banter as she pointed out, “if you’re caught with an ounce of cocaine, the chances are good you’re going to go to jail… for the rest of your life. But evidently, if you launder nearly a billion dollars for drug cartels and violate our international sanctions, your company pays a fine and you go home and sleep in your own bed at night - I think that’s fundamentally wrong.” Indeed Ms. Warren.
Banks facing a barrage of lawsuits from customers accusing them of interest-rate rigging argued on Tuesday that the cases should be dismissed, saying there is no evidence of antitrust or other violations.
"The lending of Western States and banks and the multilateral banks they control (importantly including the World Bank, International Monetary Fund (IMF) and Inter-American Development Bank) was an important element in sustaining the long period of military rule which followed the coup against President (Jacobo) Arbenz in 1954," the report states. "Particularly worrying, however, is the very dramatic increase in lending that coincided with the highest waves of terror, which reached genocidal proportions in the late 1970s and early 1980s."
Jubilee's report uses the Chixoy Hydroelectric Dam project as a case study.
And of course, the bankers making those loans, knowing what the cost was going to be in terms of human suffering and death, went to bed each night with an absolutely clear conscience.
The Dow is at a record high and so are corporate profits – so why does it feel like most of the country is deeply suffering right now? Real household income is the lowest that it has been in a decade, poverty is absolutely soaring,47 million Americans are on food stamps and the middle class is being systematically destroyed. How can big corporations be doing so well while most American families are having such a hard time? Isn’t their wealth supposed to “trickle down” to the rest of us? Unfortunately, that is not how the real world works. Today, most big corporations are trying to minimize the number of “expensive” American workers on their payrolls as much as they can. If the big corporation that is employing you can figure out a way to replace you with a worker in China or with a robot, it will probably do it.
The Nato-led Isaf force has apologised for the deaths of two Afghan boys, killed when a helicopter fired on them, mistaking them for insurgents.
The boys, aged under seven, were killed last month in rural Uruzgan province.
Autopsy reveals Israeli thugs tortured Palestinian detainee to death (they lied when they said it was a heart attack)
BETHLEHEM (Ma'an) -- An autopsy has revealed that Arafat Jaradat died of extreme torture in Israeli custody and did not have a cardiac arrest, the PA Minister of Detainee Affairs said Sunday.
At a news conference in Ramallah, Issa Qaraqe said an autopsy conducted in Israel in the presence of Palestinian officials revealed that 30-year-old Jaradat had six broken bones in his neck, spine, arms and legs.
"The information we have received so far is shocking and painful. The evidence corroborates our suspicion that Mr. Jaradat died as a result of torture, especially since the autopsy clearly proved that the victim's heart was healthy, which disproves the initial alleged account presented by occupation authorities that he died of a heart attack," Qaraqe said..
The US is sending the artilleries, armored vehicles and different weapons systems of its troops pulled out from Afghanistan to the rebel groups in Syria, a ranking US military source disclosed on Saturday.
This, military experts say, has apparently made the US change the war strategy in Syria and open new fronts in the country.
The US and its allies have been sending most of their arms cargos to the rebels through Turkey, which neighbors Northern Syria. Just last week a Libyan member of the al-Qaeda disclosed that France has supplied the rebel and terrorist groups in Syria with Russian Igla anti-air missiles and even trained them how to use these systems.
"Qaddafi's regime had good relations with the Russians and purchased various weapons from them, including Igla anti-air missiles, which are similar to the US Stinger anti-air shoulder-launched missiles," Othman Trablosi said on Wednesday.
He said that after Qaddafi's regime collapsed and rebels came to conquer its army's weapons and ammo caches, the French army which supported the Libyan rebels with logistical and intelligence backups, collected 232 Igla missiles which were in the hands of the Libyan fighters who were busy with fighting Qaddafi's supporters.
"After that the French found some of the Libyan army officers who had been trained to use Igla missiles and in September 2012 they used these offers for training a number of al-Qaeda terrorists who ran operations in Syria," Trablosi explained.
"Then" he said "the French transited these al-Qaeda members and the Igla anti-air systems from Benghazi to the Southern provinces of Turkey on a Bulgarian cargo plane and then ferried them across the border into Syria."
But after the US witnessed that the Northern front has failed to overpower the Syrian Army, it has now changed strategy to intensify arms aid to different rebel groups across the country to open new front, specially in the South.
Liz Sly and Karen DeYoung in an article in Washington Post in late February reported an influx of heavy weaponry by outside powers to Southern Syria to arm the Free Syrian Army.
"The new armaments, including anti-tank weapons and recoilless rifles, have been sent across the Jordanian border into the province of Daraa in Southern Syria in recent weeks," the Washington Post article quoted Arab officials as saying.
The article quoted the same officials as saying that the arms include "heavy weapons supplied by outside powers to the rebels battling to topple President Bashar al-Assad".
The officials declined to identify the source of the newly provided weapons, but they noted that the countries are those which are "most closely involved in supporting the rebels' campaign to oust Assad".
"They include the United States and its major European allies, along with Turkey and the United Arab Emirates, and Saudi Arabia and Qatar, the two countries most directly involved in supplying the rebels. Security officials from those nations have formed a security coordination committee that consults regularly on events in Syria," the Washington Post article quoted the officials as saying.
"The idea was to get heavier stuff and intensify supply" said an Arab official who spoke on the condition of anonymity because of the sensitivity of the operation, according to Washington Post.
Louay al-Mokdad, the political and media coordinator for the Free Syrian Army, confirmed that the rebels have procured new weapons donated from outside Syria, rather than bought on the black market or seized during the capture of government facilities. But he declined to say who was behind the effort.
Another coordinator for the Free Syrian Army, whose units have received several cargos of these new arms supplies since in mid-February, said "the goal of the supplies also is to shift the focus of the war away from the North toward the South and the capital, Assad's stronghold."
The primary reason, we are told, that the West must immediately begin wider operations to support the so-called Syrian rebels is to head off extremists - namely Al Qaeda, from overrunning Syria. This narrative has been sold for nearly a year now, as it has become evidently clear that all major offensives in Syria against the Syrian people and their government have been led by Al Qaeda terrorist fronts, including, most notoriously, Jabhat al-Nusra...
MOSCOW, March 2 (RIA Novosti) – Russia is facing a ‘real war’ aimed at hampering the country’s legal deliveries of weapons to Syria, the head of the Federal Service for Military and Technical Cooperation has said.
“A real war has been declared against us,” Alexander Fomin told Ekho Moskvy radio on Friday without specifying who has declared the war.
More than a MILLION refugees have fled Syria's bloody civil war: UN warns the conflict-ravaged nation is 'spiralling towards disaster'
The number of Syrians who have fled the civil war and urgently need help has now topped one million, the United Nations' refugee agency said today.
The figure is based on reports from the agency's field offices in neighboring countries that have provided refuge for families fleeing the conflict between forces loyal to Syrian President Bashar Assad and the Free Syrian Army, said Antonio Guterres, the UN High Commissioner for Refugees.
'With a million people in flight, millions more displaced internally, and thousands of people continuing to cross the border every day, Syria is spiraling towards full-scale disaster,' Guterres said.
Syrian insurgents’ training at a mock up of “Assad’s citadel”: a spring board for American, French and British Special Operation Units
American, French and British instructors are providing training to Syrian rebels at a camp in the Jordanian desert. Observers say that this camp can be used as a bridgehead for the activities of US special troops in Syria, if Washington finds that Bashar Assad is going to use chemical weapons.
(Sigh). Could the US government and military possibly telegraph any more loudly that a false chemical attack is coming to be blamed on the Al-Assad government as an excuse for an outright invasion?!?
The ill-treatment of Palestinian minors held within the Israeli military detention system is “widespread, systematic and institutionalised,” a report Wednesday by the UN children’s fund found.
UNICEF in the 22-page report that examined the Israeli military court system for holding Palestinian children found evidence of practices it said were “cruel, inhuman and degrading treatment or punishment.”
“Ill-treatment of Palestinian children in the Israeli military detention system appears to be widespread, systematic and institutionalised,” it concluded, outlining 38 recommendations to improve the protection of children in custody.
Over the past decade, Israeli forces have arrested, interrogated and prosecuted around 7,000 Palestinian children aged between between 12 and 17, most of them boys, the report said, noting the rate was equivalent to “an average of two children each day.
The Israeli government and IDF will simply throw this report into the garbage, and nothing will be done to improve the lot of these imprisoned children.
