Investors keep trading stocks that seem doomed
08-28-2009  •  AP 

Investors are still trading common shares of Fannie Mae, Freddie Mac and American International Group Inc. by the billions, even though analysts say their prices are almost certain to go to zero.

All three are majority-owned by the government and are losing huge sums of money. The Securities and Exchange Commission and other regulators lack authority to end trading of stocks in such “zombie” companies that technically are alive - until the government takes them off life support.

There should be absolutely no doubt Glenn Beck is a government disinfo operative tasked with taking down the 9/11 truth and patriot movements. In fact, Fox News " as a primary front of Operation Mockingbird " is tasked with attacking not only the 9/11 truth movement but the pro-liberty and Constitution movements as well.

Oprah Shines Light On Great Pacific Garbage Patch (VIDEO)
08-27-2009  •  http://www.huffingtonpost.com/2009/04/23/oprah-shi 
Oprah's green episode for Earth Day started with chilling footage and description of a giant island of trash -- "The Great Pacific Garbage Patch". Currently, scientists believe the world's largest garbage dump isn't on land...it's in the Pacific Ocean. The Great Pacific Garbage Patch stretches from the coast of California to Japan, and it's estimated to be twice the size of Texas. "This is the most shocking thing I have seen," Oprah says. Just a month ago, the Natural Resource Defense Council's Kate Slusark blogged here at HuffPost Green about the giant oceanic trash dump: To give you a little background: Years of bottles, bags, toys, packaging and plastic trash from all corners of the Earth are swirling in a plastic whirlpool in the North Pacific. Discarded water bottles from Iowa, takeout containers from New York City, flip-flops from California and plastic debris from the world over make their way from land into storm drains, s

Missing US girl is found after 18 years
08-27-2009  •  Guy Adams in Los Angeles 
Couple arrested after woman walks into sheriff's office to identify herself. 

A woman who was kidnapped more than 18 years ago was today being re-united with her family, after escaping from a couple who apparently forced her to spend a large portion of her adolescence locked in their garden shed.

Jaycee Lee Duggard, a blonde-haired, blue-eyed girl of 11 when she was abducted, in broad daylight, while waiting for a school bus, surfaced on Wednesday after wandering into a parole office in a town near San Francisco.

In a case that bears chilling echoes to that of Joseph Fritzl - the Austrian electrician who kept his daughter in a cellar - police believe Ms Duggard was locked away in a darkened building for several years, and repeatedly raped by her captors.

Of course it’s not a national ID card
08-27-2009  •  Papers Please 

Whenever questions are raised about national ID schemes like REAL-ID or PASS-ID, their more public-relations savvy proponents are always quick to say, “But of course this isn’t a national ID card”.  The same goes for L-1 Identity Solutions, the prime drivers license, ID card, and ID and biometric database contractor, aggregator, and data miner for California and the majority of other states (and keynote presenter at ICAO’s upcoming Symposium on Machine Readable Travel Dcouments next month in Montreal).

Inhofe: U.S. headed toward revolution
08-27-2009  •  The Hill 
The overreaching of the federal government is pushing the U.S. towards a revolution, Sen. Jim Inhofe (R-Okla.) said today. "People are not buying these concepts that are completely foreign to America," Inhofe said at a townhall in Chickasaw, Okla. "We're almost reaching a revolution in this country." Inhofe has been one of the Senate's most strident opponents of climate legislation and healthcare reform. Inhofe added that he didn't need to read the full helathcare legislation before deciding to vote against it. Public opinion and news reports, he said, provided all the information he needed. "I don't have to read it, or know what's in it," Inhofe said. "I'm going to oppose it anyways." Most of the versions of healthcare legislation making their away through congress are about 1,000 pages long.

Hummel: The US Will Default On Its Debt

The flood of debt that the US is taking on in its efforts rescue to economy will combine with huge social insurance obligations--Medicare, MedicaidSocial Security--to create an unsustainable level of public indebtedness, economist Jeffrey Rogers Hummel argues in at length here. Faced with this mountain of debt, policy makers will have just two choices: repudiate the debt or engage in hyper inflation to monetize it, Hummel writes. And faced with that choice the Treasury will likely protect the currency and default on Treasuries. Here's the scary conclusion:

Charges Against Gov. Richardson Unlikely
08-27-2009  •  Washington Post 

The FBI and a grand jury in Albuquerque have been investigating whether CDR Financial Products, a Beverly Hills-based company, received a contract with the New Mexico Finance Authority because of pressure from Richardson or other state employees. CDR was paid $1.48 million for advising the authority on investment decisions in 2004.

The firm and its president, David Rubin, together gave $100,000 to Sí Se Puede and Moving America Forward, both PACs started by Richardson, shortly before winning the state contract.

Mass. Court OKs $102M Wrongful-Conviction Award
08-27-2009  •  AP 
A federal appeals court on Thursday upheld a $102 million judgment against the government for withholding evidence that could have cleared four men who spent decades in prison " including two who died there " for a murder they didn't commit.   "While we reject its finding that the government is liable for malicious prosecution, we uphold the court's alternate finding that the government is liable for intentional infliction of emotional distress," the 1st U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals said.   The district court judge said FBI agents were trying to protect informants when they encouraged a witness to lie, then withheld evidence they knew could prove Limone and the three other men weren't involved in the Deegan killing.

'Barack' not catching on as a baby name
08-27-2009  •  red Orbit 
The females of the first family made the list of the 1,000 most popular baby names, says a new report, but the president did not. Michelle, the first lady's name, and those of her daughters, Sasha and Malia, appeared on the list released Wednesday by the Social Security Administration, The New York Times reports. Sasha, at 353rd, hasn't changed much in rank in the past few years. Malia jumped to 345th most popular baby name last year from 400th in 2007, while Michelle dropped from 94th to 103rd. Other names proved popular because of their association with celebrities. Hillary jumped to 715 from 961 during the last presidential campaign. Jayden skipped from 75 to 11 after Britney Spears used it. The top girls name is Emma, which has ranked in the single digits since 2002, as it did in the late 19th century when these rankings started. It displaced Emily for first place. Jacob, which replaced Michael as No. 1 in 1998 and has stayed there, is the only name to be g

Paleontologists Uncover New Dinosaur In Australia
08-27-2009  •  red Orbit 
Paleontologists in Australia have discovered a new species of dinosaur on a sheep farm in the northern state of Queensland. The fossils are of a large plant-eating sauropod, nicknamed Zac, which roamed the earth about 97 million years ago. They were discovered in Eromanga, which is a town full of fossils that was once covered by a vast inland area. According to the scientists, the discovery confirms Australia's importance as a center for dinosaur discovery. In 2004, the country's largest dinosaur, Cooper, was found resting on the same sheep farm. Cooper was a 98-foot long, new species of titanosaur, which is an enormous, armor-plated creature. Scott Hocknull, a Queensland Museum paleontologist, said Zac's skeleton was smaller than Cooper's but more complete. Zac had a very long neck, like other sauropods, and had a small head with blunt teeth. He also had a long tail that would counter-balance the neck

Do campaign contributions help win pension fund deals?
08-27-2009  •  USA Today 
More than two dozen firms that have surfaced in a broad corruption investigation of public pension funds gave at least $1.97 million in campaign contributions to officials with potential influence over the funds' investments, a USA TODAY analysis shows. The givers included private-equity giants such as the Blackstone Group, the Carlyle Group and the Quadrangle Group, the firm founded by Steven Rattner, who in July resigned as the White House point man for the auto industry rescue. The contributions are legal, and the firms haven't been accused of wrongdoing related to the giving. Conflicts of interest Even in cases with no charges of illegality, watchdogs argue that the campaign contributions " known as pay-to-play " create conflicts of interest.

The Devil We Know

What this country needs is a Fed Chairman that is immensely unpopular, backed by a courageous President. Under Paul Volcker and Ronald Reagan, this model proved effective at avoiding a complete economic collapse in the early 1980's. In case posterity's resounding approval has clouded anyone's memory, Volcker was vilified and threatened with impeachment at the height of that crisis. Reagan's decision to stand behind Volcker allowed the Chairman to persevere. It has never been popular to be responsible. Only after the markets settled and the country experienced twenty years of prosperity was history's final judgment made about Volcker. Bernanke's re-nomination is a politically safe decision for President Obama, and at least Bernanke is a devil we know.

Hitler / Obama Comparisons: Is Barack Obama Like Adolf Hitler or The Nazis?
08-27-2009  •  The Humble Libertarian 
Socialism and The Obama Administration In popular conception, "left-wing" politics taken to the extreme produces Stalin, while "right-wing" politics taken to the extreme produces Hitler. What a stupid contrivance! Why should two mass-murdering autocrats end up on opposite ends of a political spectrum? The general American public seems oblivious to the fact that the word "Nazi" is an abbreviation for the "National Socialist German Workers Party." (In German, the word "national" is pronounced nawt-zi-uh-nal.) Adolf Hitler and the Nazi Party were socialist. The horrors inherent in socialism have made themselves all too apparent at this point on the timeline, after a century of warfare and bloodshed unrivaled in human history- the handiwork of socialist ideology and its adherents. His socialism is part of what made Adolf Hitler so evil. There can be no argument that President Obama is likewise, a socialist.

Who is actually the fascist?
08-27-2009  •  Ellis County Press 
Well, one of the primary propaganda victories old Joe Stalin achieved during his bloody reign was to convince the world that communism and fascism were utterly unlike each other. What’s a fact is fascism is a brand of left-wing ideology. Marxism and Nazism are political mirror images, offshoots of totalitarian socialism. Contrary to left-wing myth, there is no such thing as "right-wing fascism." In the 1930s, fascism was widely viewed as "progressive" ideology championing economic modernization, active social welfare policies and an all-powerful central government, or state if you will. Both Italian dictator Benito Mussolini and German dictator Adolph Hitler were men who believed in the left. They both understood that fascism was a form of revolutionary socialism; however, what differentiated Nazism from communism was its blood-and-soil ultra-nationalism and emphasis on the consequences of race. Additionally, fascists sought to bind the private sector to stati

WORLD'S 50 SAFEST BANKS 2009
08-27-2009  •  Global Finance Magazine 
With bank stability still high on corporate and investor agendas,Global Finance publishes its 18th annual list of the world’s safest banks. After two tumultuous years that saw many of the world’s most respected banks drop out of the top-50 safest banks list, the dust appears to be settling. Those banks that kept an iron grip on their risk exposure before the financial crisis blew up have consistently topped the table and maintain their standing among the top echelon in this year’s ranking. At the same time, the big name banks that lost their safest bank ranking during the credit crunch are still absent from the list as they struggle to rebuild their credit standing. The “World’s 50 Safest Banks” 2009 were selected through a comparison of the long-term credit ratings and total assets of the 500 largest banks around the world. Ratings from Moody’s, Standard & Poor’s and Fitch were used. Global Finance has published its “World’s Safest Banks” listing for 18 years and this ranking has beco

Racketeering 101: Bailed Out Banks Threaten Systemic Collapse If Fed Discloses Information
08-27-2009  •  Zero Hedge 
And so the guns come out blazing. The Clearing House Association, another name for all the banks that were bailed out over the past year with the generous contributions from all of you, dear taxpayers, are now threatening with another instance of complete systemic collapse if Bloomberg's lawsuit is allowed to proceed unchallenged, let alone if any of the "Audit The Fed" measures are actually implemented. As a reminder, The Clearing House Association consists of ABN Amro, Bank Of America, The Bank Of New York, Deutsche Bank, HSBC, JP Morgan Chase, US Bank and Wells Fargo. In a declaration filed in the Bloomberg Case (08-CV-9595, Southern District of New York), the banks demonstrate no shame in attempting to perpetuate the status quo with regard to the Federal Reserve and demand that the wool over the eyes of the general population remain firmly planted in perpetuity.

Ah, The Game Is Afoot!

You knew it wouldn't be that easy..... Aug. 27 (Bloomberg) -- The Federal Reserve argued yesterday that identifying the financial institutions that benefited from its emergency loans would harm the companies and render the central bank’s planned appeal of a court ruling moot. "Harm the companies" eh? You mean reveal that they are and have been insolvent, and The Fed has been engaged in covering them up? “What has the Fed got to hide?” said Senator Bernie Sanders, a Vermont independent who sponsored a bill to require the Fed to submit to an audit by the Government Accountability Office. “The time has come for the Fed to stop stonewalling and hand this information over to the public,” he said in an e-mail. The Fed is hiding the insolvency of banks. They, along with their handmaidens in Congress (which is where you work Mr. Sanders) even went further and twisted the arm of FASB to legalize intentional accounting distortions that I argue amount to fraud.
