NATO airstrike in Afghanistan kills up to 90
09-04-2009  •  AP 
An American aircraft blasted two fuel tankers hijacked by the Taliban in northern Afghanistan on Friday, killing up to 90 people, including insurgents and dozens of civilians who had rushed to the scene to collect fuel, Afghan officials said.

NATO officials initially insisted that there were no civilians in the area when the attack occurred about 2:30 a.m., but alliance chief Anders Fogh Rasmussen later acknowledged some civilians may have died.

She incorrectly stated in July that a Democratic bill in the House would “absolutely require” counseling sessions for Medicare recipients “that will tell them how to end their life sooner,” drawing a “Pants on Fire” rating from the Politifact fact-checking Web site; her false assertion that the presidential health adviser Dr. Ezekiel J. Emanuel believes “medical care should be reserved for the nondisabled” helped inspire former Gov. Sarah Palin’s discredited warning about “death panels” deciding who is “worthy of health care.”

Laugh while you can-US Gov. Stages Fake Coup To Wipe Out National Debt
09-04-2009  •  Lori Smith 
You have to laugh when you watch these Onion Videos because what else are you going to do CRY? Why Default on U.S. Treasuries is Likely by Jeffrey Rogers Hummel* Almost everyone is aware that federal government spending in the United States is scheduled to skyrocket, primarily because of Social Security, Medicare, and Medicaid. Recent "stimulus" packages have accelerated the process. Only the naively optimistic actually believe that politicians will fully resolve this looming fiscal crisis with some judicious combination of tax hikes and program cuts. Many predict that, instead, the government will inflate its way out of this future bind, using Federal Reserve monetary expansion to fill the shortfall between outlays and receipts. But I believe, in contrast, that it is far more likely that the United States will be driven to an outright default on Treasury securities, openly reneging on the interest due on its formal debt and probably repudiati  Read Full Story

Jobless rate at 9.7 pct.; 216K jobs lost in Aug. News Link  •  Economy - Economics USA
Jobless rate at 9.7 pct.; 216K jobs lost in Aug.
09-04-2009  •  AP 
The unemployment rate jumped almost half a point to 9.7 percent in August, the highest since 1983, reflecting a poor job market that will make it hard for the U.S. economy to begin a sustained recovery.

While the jobless rate rose more than expected, the economy shed a net total of 216,000 jobs, less than July's revised 276,000 and the fewest monthly losses in a year, according to Labor Department data released Friday. Economists expected the unemployment rate to rise to 9.5 percent from July's 9.4 percent and job reductions to total 225,000.

Obama speech to students sparks new controversy
09-04-2009  •  AP 

"I think it's really unfortunate that politics has been brought into this," White House deputy policy director Heather Higginbottom said.

"It's simply a plea to students to really take their learning seriously. Find out what they're good at. Set goals. And take the school year seriously."

She noted that President George H.W. Bush made a similar address to schools in 1991. Like Obama, Bush drew criticism, with Democrats accusing the Republican president of making the event into a campaign commercial.

End the IMF!
09-04-2009  •  Economic Policy Journal 
Fund manager, Nathan Lewis, explains how the International Monetary Fund is nothing more the collection arm of the big banks: The International Monetary Fund operates primarily as a banker bailout machine. They cajole and tempt and confuse and threaten the leaders of governments worldwide to pay off the failed bets of the big bankers using the taxpayer funds of their countries. This has been going on a long time, at least since the early 1980s. Thus, I am not in the teeniest bit surprised that the same thing is happening today in Iceland and Latvia.... Michael Hudson has some of the details:"...The European Union and International Monetary Fund have told them to replace private debts with public obligations, and to pay by raising taxes, slashing public spending and obliging citizens to deplete their savings..." This is the trick: replacing private debts with public obligations. Lots of people loaned money to banks and corporations in Iceland. They are now facing h  Read Full Story

Outsider Ron Paul finds support for Fed audit
09-04-2009  •  Reuters 
After decades of pushing long-shot causes like abolishing the income tax and reinstating the gold standard, Republican Representative Ron Paul finds himself in an unaccustomed spot: on the cusp of legislative victory. A majority of the libertarian-leaning Texan's colleagues in the House of Representatives support his proposal to increase congressional scrutiny of the Federal Reserve, and the measure could be included in a broader banking overhaul this fall. But don't expect the House to take up Paul's other pet causes, such as pulling out of the United Nations. Experts say the success of his Federal Reserve Scrutiny Act reflects rising unease with the central bank's dramatic actions over the past year, rather than any increased influence stemming from Paul's quixotic 2008 presidential bid. "He's finally found the right moment," said Sarah Binder of the liberal-leaning Brookings Institution. Paul's spokeswoman Rachel Mills agrees: "His bil  Read Full Story

Take it with a grain of salt
09-04-2009  •  BlueLoriBlogSpot 
Call me stupid but I have a difficult time understanding many articles written today. Take for example this Yahoo story that came out today. It is titled "Improving economy not likely to lower jobless rate". The article goes on to say... "The economy is showing consistent signs of improvement, but probably not enough to stop employers from cutting jobs or to keep the unemployment rate from rising. The Labor Department is expected to report Friday that the jobless rateincreased to 9.5 percent in August, from 9.4 percent in July, as employers cut 225,000 jobs." In my mind that would lead me to believe one of two things the first being improving for who, the second how can they claim the economy is improving at all if if more jobs are being lost each month. As I said we must also examine who owns the news? This clip is a good example...  Read Full Story

As any reader and attendee of the PPEC webpages and meetings know, this group has a very different view of economics than is currently in vogue in our country and around the world. That view also stems from a worldview that is in many ways also at odds with the political and "socio-economic" view of the so-called 'mainstream.' We are not at odds with the mainstream view in order to only disagree. We disagree because the mainstream view is demonstrably odd.  Read Full Story

Loan Losses Spark Concern Over FHA
09-03-2009  •  WSJ 
The Federal Housing Administration, hit by increasing mortgage-related losses, is in danger of seeing its reserves fall below the level demanded by Congress, according to government officials, in a development that could raise concerns about whether the agency needs a taxpayer bailout. The rising losses at the FHA, part of the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development, come as the agency has rapidly increased its role in guaranteeing loans in an attempt to stabilize the housing market. It isn't clear how the rising losses may affect home buyers. Options for the agency could include politically unpalatable choices, such as asking for taxpayer funds to boost reserves or increasing the premiums borrowers pay for the insurance offered by the agency. Agency officials say if there is a shortfall, they don't have to do anything except report it to lawmakers. But some mortgage and housing analysts see trouble ahead.

Charging a bank for an implicit government guarantee to absorb losses? According to the Wall Street Journal, the Federal Reserve and Treasury are demanding that Bank of America pay $500 million to exit a bailout deal that was never actually signed. That’s a nice chunk of change, but taxpayers shouldn’t be fooled into thinking this " or any other bailout " is a good deal. A very dangerous misconception is taking root in the press, that in addition to saving the world financial system, the bank bailout is making taxpayers money.  Read Full Story
