Wall Street and the Media Want Us to Forget Who Started the Financial Crisis

LES LEOPOLD — We're at the moment Wall Street has been waiting for: The time where we begin to forget who brought the economy down.


The Bad Guys of Subprime Lending Are Raking in Bailout Billions — The top subprime lenders whose loans are largely blamed for triggering the global economic meltdown were owned or bankrolled by banks now collecting billions of dollars in bailout money — including several that have paid huge fines to settle predatory lending charges.


Banks in Recovery as Home Foreclosures Hit Record — The banks are selling stock and debt, and racking up excellent returns on mortgages, loans, high credit card rates and refinancings. Meanwhile, home foreclosures in April were 342,000 — the highest level yet — and average national unemployment rose to 8.9 percent, the highest level since 1983. Some communities are just barely hanging on.


Corporations Widely Using Wal-Mart Tactics — A definitive new look at the scope of employer ant-union campaigns by a noted Cornell University labor scholar finds that corporations have ramped up a wide-range of tactics designed to punish and intimidate workers for seeking to form a union.


Bail-out Kings and Backbench Barons Beware — We need to reassert the notion that roles of authority are positions of responsibility rather than declarations of personal merit and routes to personal enrichment. That notion goes with old-fashioned concepts of social obligation and public service. An insistence that power is a duty, not a prize, is probably the most important reason why some countries in the world are rich and others poor. The point needs to be brought home in equal measure to legislators, chief executives and bankers.

Who are the Oath Keepers?

Time for a Truth Commission

by Marie Cocco


The partisan firefight over House Speaker Nancy Pelosi’s incendiary allegation that the CIA lied to Congress about its use of ‘enhanced interrogation techniques’ — torture — is a blessing. It turns the compelling case for a public inquiry into the Bush administration’s policies toward terrorism detainees into an urgent necessity. Americans must finally own up to what was done, at whose order, with whose acquiescence, and why. The United States government must at last hold accountable the architects of this calamity — not only the underlings like Lynndie England and Charles Graner and Janet Karpinski, those frontline military personnel who paid the price for bit roles in the scandal after the first stomach-turning photos of abuse at Iraq’s Abu Ghraib prison came to light...

Cheney is becoming Obama’s enabler

Cato Institute
by Gene Healy


Dick Cheney’s ‘Shut Up and Listen’ tour continued last week on CBS’s Face the Nation. There, the former veep reiterated his favorite theme: Obama is putting America at risk by ‘taking down a lot of those policies we put in place that kept the nation safe.’ What in the world is Cheney talking about? Granted, Obama’s anti-terror policies are clouded by rhetorical ‘Hope’ and euphemism, and the new administration is less given to chest-thumping than its predecessor. Otherwise, Obama’s approach to terrorism is virtually identical to Bush/Cheney’s...

Cheney's Speech Ignored Some Inconvenient Truths

Gitmo: A prison built on lies

by Andy Worthington


As the Obama administration prepares to relaunch Dick Cheney and David Addington’s reviled Military Commissions (with claims that they will be used for less than 20 of the 241 prisoners still held), senior officials have been largely silent about the eventual fate of the rest of the prisoners, with the exception of a few recent remarks indicating that they are also thinking of pressing for a form of “preventive detention” for 50 to 100 of the prisoners.The irony — that all the prisoners have been enduring a form of “preventive detention” for over seven years — is apparently lost on the government, which has also maintained a resolute silence in response to a handful of habeas corpus cases (in which the prisoners are seeking to have their cases dismissed by the courts, as mandated by the Supreme Court last June) that have resulted in judges pouring scorn on the government’s supposed evidence...

To Meet June Deadline, US and Iraqis Redraw City Borders

Jane Arraf, The Christian Science Monitor: "On a map of Baghdad, the US Army's Forward Operating Base Falcon is clearly within city limits. Except that Iraqi and American military officials have decided it's not. As the June 30 deadline for US soldiers to be out of Iraqi cities approaches, there are no plans to relocate the roughly 3,000 American troops who help maintain security in south Baghdad along what were the fault lines in the sectarian war."

Documents Describe Torture Photos

Jason Leopold, Truthout: "US Army soldiers in Afghanistan took dozens of pictures of their colleagues pointing assault rifles and pistols at the heads and backs of hooded and bound detainees and another photograph showed two male soldiers and one female soldier pointing a broom to one detainee 'as if I was sticking the end of a broom stick into [his] rectum,' according to the female soldier's account as told to an Army criminal investigator."

U.S. Economy: The Cancer is Still There

By Glen Ford

Saving the finance capital oligarchy has emerged as President Obama's central mission - the guiding focus of his young administration. Obama has found new and myriad ways to go where no American president has ever gone before, in funneling somewhere around $13 trillion of national treasure to the parasitical class that goes by the shorthand, Wall Street.

Cindy's Nightmare

By Cindy Sheehan

To those of you who don't support me, sorry to tell you, I am not, or never will give up. If I survived burying my oldest son for lies, I can survive any crap you or the Robber Class throws at me. The system seriously underestimates the love and commitment of a mother wronged. There are two illegal occupations raging, still, and more than enough work to do to wrest our country out of the hands of militarists/corporatists.

Juan Gonzalez and Amy Goodman, Democracy Now!: "'Shock Doctrine' author Naomi Klein and Al Jazeera host Avi Lewis discuss the workers who are taking over their factories and plants rather than lose their jobs, some to owners who owe money to bailed-out banks. They also address the latest news in the nation's global economic collapse amidst the White House and Democratic-led Congress's rejection of single-payer health care."

Donald Rumsfeld: And He Shall Be Judged

Robert Draper, GQ: "Former defense secretary Donald Rumsfeld has always answered his detractors by claiming that history will one day judge him kindly. But as he waits for that day, a new group of critics - his administration peers - are suddenly speaking out for the first time. What they're saying? It isn't pretty."

Why We Can't See the Trees or the Forest: The Torture Memos and Historical Amnesia

Noam Chomsky, "The torture memos released by the White House elicited shock, indignation, and surprise. The shock and indignation are understandable. The surprise, less so. For one thing, even without inquiry, it was reasonable to suppose that Guantanamo was a torture chamber. Why else send prisoners where they would be beyond the reach of the law - a place, incidentally, that Washington is using in violation of a treaty forced on Cuba at the point of a gun? Security reasons were, of course, alleged, but they remain hard to take seriously."
