Grays people demonstrate against mast plan

3:50pm Tuesday 17th March 2009

MORE than 50 angry residents gathered to protest against plans for a new mobile phone mast near their homes.

Residents living around The Spinney, an area of open space in Lodge Lane, Grays, made placards and made their feelings clear in a demo, which also involved ward councillors.

They also handed Grays councillor Peter Harris a petition signed by 200 people. Mr Harris said: “A single mast would ruin The Spinney, which is a lovely open area with trees. Where you get one mast, you often end up with a forest of them.”

St Albans residents vow to stop Orange from siting mast in area

8:35am Tuesday 17th March 2009

By Manisha Mistry

A GROUP of campaigners facing the prospect of living next to a phone mast are calling for immediate action to end their seven-year protest.

Residents in Gurney Court Road and Sandpit Lane have been waiting years for St Albans District Council to confirm where Orange should site its mast.

They say that the council, as landowner, has made no attempt to sit down with operators and reach agreement on where masts should be based.



Skandal um Monsantos MON810

Auch beim Thema Gen-Mais steht Bundeslandwirtschaftsministerin Ilse Aigner unter Zugzwang. Denn die Entscheidung der EU-Umweltminister, Österreich und Ungarn nicht zum Anbau des genmanipulierten MON810 des Monsanto-Konzerns zu zwingen, muss auch hierzulande Konsequenzen haben. Die Ministerin will jedoch vor einem möglichen Anbau-Verbot in Deutschland einen Bericht von Monsanto abwarten. Ein Skandal, finden wir. Lesen Sie dazu unsere Pressemitteilung:


Hypocrisy in Government

Independent Institute
by Ivan Eland


Recent statements by President Barack Obama, Secretary of State Hillary Clinton, and White House Chief of Staff Rahm Emanuel, admitting that they were going to use the economic crisis to get other things done, is at least surprisingly honest. But it is also hypocritical. Remember when some of these same people criticized George W. Bush for using the 9/11 tragedy to invade the unrelated nation of Iraq?

Grassley to AIG execs: Do the honorable thing



Sen. Charles Grassley is so angry over AIG bonuses that he says the executives should resign or kill themselves. In a comment aired this afternoon on WMT, an Iowa radio station, Grassley (R-Iowa) said: The first thing that would make me feel a little bit better towards them if they’d follow the Japanese model and come before the American people and take that deep bow and say I’m sorry, and then either do one of two things — resign, or go commit suicide. The radio clip was also aired on WTOP, a news radio station in Washington...


Moral outrage in the age of AIG

Christian Science Monitor
by staff


Ever peel back an onion to find it rotten at the core? Both the protecting outer layers and the rot are offenders. For Americans, that is much the same experience as they learn more about AIG. Once the largest risk-taker in US home prices, AIG is now Wall Street’s largest recipient of bailout money — and it just paid bonuses to its most culpable workers. Congress plans a public flogging Wednesday of Edward Liddy, CEO of American International Group. It may not matter that he took the job only last fall at the government’s request to prevent a corporate collapse that, at the time, Congress and others thought would bring down the financial system. At the least, this moral venting might help reveal the truth behind AIG’s risky actions and the regulators who were supposedly watching the exotic insurance schemes that AIG sold to expand the sale of mortgage-backed securities...

A.I.G. Using "Suicide Strategy" to Push Bonuses

Matt Renner, Truthout: "As nationwide populist anger boils after the news that hundreds of millions of taxpayer dollars may be given to employees of the insurance-giant-turned-government-liability American Insurance Group (A.I.G.), President Obama promised to try to block what he described as an 'outrage' Monday, but a group of former regulators said the administration must get even tougher in A.I.G. Economics and law Professor William K. Black, a famous figure in the savings and loan crisis of the 1980s for his role as a senior regulator who fingered the then speaker of the House and 'The Keating Five' for doing favors for bankers, has been a vocal critic of the bailout programs, which began during the Bush administration. In an interview with Truthout, Professor Black said that A.I.G. is using a 'suicide strategy' to hold the government hostage and keep the bailout funds flowing."


The Real Scandal of A.I.G.

Robert Reich, Robert Reich's Blog: "The real scandal of AIG isn't just that American taxpayers have so far committed $170 billion to the giant insurer because it is thought to be too big to fail -- the most money ever funneled to a single company by a government since the dawn of capitalism -- nor even that AIG's notoriously failing executives, at the very unit responsible for the catastrophic credit-default swaps at the very center of the debacle, are planning to give themselves over $100 million in bonuses. The scandal is that even at this late date, even in a new administration dedicated to doing it all differently, Americans still have so little say over what is happening with our money."



IMF poised to print billions of dollars in 'global quantitative easing'

Monetary and fiscal failure, fraud, and fear of what’s next

Freedom's Phoenix
by Stephen Lendman


Even the powerful are worried with the IMF on February 7 saying advanced economies are in ‘depression (and) the worst cannot be ruled out.’ Forecasting a 2010 recovery is ‘very uncertain’ at this time as further financial turmoil may disrupt it regardless of policies adopted, and trouble is outpacing resources to alleviate it. … America is for sale as a commodity. Serfdom is planned for most people, and Obama is as much at fault as Bush so let’s be clear. He’s either a consenting co-conspirator in the looting of the country or a willing dupe letting it happen in his name. Either way, he’s part of a crime syndicate driving world economies and most people everywhere to ruin to enrich and further empower a select Wall Street elite — the same ones and their lobbyists that provided millions for his campaign...

The TALF: Bernanke's Witness Protection Program

By Mike Whitney

The TALF and the "Public-Private Partnership" are another slap in the face of the international community. They violate the spirit and the letter of the G-20 communique. It will be interesting to see if foreign holders of US Treasurys endure this latest insult in silence or if there's a sudden stampede for the exits. There's a sense that the world is getting fed up with the Fed's financial chicanery and would like to chart a different course. Enough is enough.


The Financial Sector: "A House Burning Down"

Ben Bernanke's False Analogy

By Prof. Michael Hudson

The bottom line is that the American public is being fed a carefully crafted mythology (no doubt "market tested" on "response groups" to see which images fly best) to mislead the American public into misunderstanding the nature of today's financial problem - to mislead it in such a way that today's policies will make sense and gain voter support.

How the US is shifting the financial crisis onto the rest of the world

By Pepe Escobar

The US Treasury will borrow no less than one trillion dollars from the developing world in 2009. It will need even more in 2010. Pepe Escobar argues the US is indeed in a privileged position: not only it unleashes a global financial crisis, it then sucks up money from all over the world, based on the fact that the US in fact remains the "manager" of choice of global capitalism.



Missouri State Police Think You And I Are Terrorists

by Pastor Chuck Baldwin

Thanks to a concerned Missouri state policeman, a nationally syndicated radio talk show host stated that he was alerted last week to a secret Missouri state police report that categorized supporters of Congressman Ron Paul, Bob Barr, and myself as "'militia' influenced terrorists." The report, he said, "instructs the Missouri police to be on the lookout for supporters displaying bumper stickers and other paraphernalia associated with the Constitutional, Campaign for Liberty, and Libertarian parties." Ignoring the threat of Muslim terrorists, the Missouri.......


My Response To MIAC Report

by Pastor Chuck Baldwin

By now, readers should be familiar with the Missouri Information Analysis Center (MIAC) report dated 02/20/09 and titled, "MIAC Strategic Report: The Modern Militia Movement." In this dreadfully malicious and slanderous "law enforcement sensitive" secret police report, Governor Jeremiah (Jay) Nixon; John Britt, Director of the Missouri Department of Public Safety; James Keathley, Colonel, Missouri State Highway Patrol; and Van Godsey, Director of MIAC categorize certain citizens as being potential violence-prone "militia members." I would venture to guess that more than 75% of the entire population of the United States would fit the MIAC's broad definition of someone who would fall into the aforementioned category........



Southern Oligarchy and the Labor Unions

Joseph B. Atkins, The Progressive Populist: "Cheap labor. Even more than race, it's the thread that connects all of Southern history - from the antebellum South of John C. Calhoun and Jefferson Davis to Tennessee's Bob Corker, Alabama's Richard Shelby and the other anti-union Southerners in today's US Senate. It's at the epicenter of a sad class divide between a desperate, poorly educated workforce and a demagogic oligarchy, and it has been a demarcation line stronger than the Mason-Dixon in separating the region from the rest of the nation."
