Homeland Security and US Army Plan Invasion of States

by NWV News

The Pentagon and Department of Homeland Security recently hosted a teleconference for law enforcement agencies and associations such as the National Association of Chiefs of Police to discuss the Obama Administration's interest in using the military during "emergencies." Fortunately, had exclusive access to the discussion and the explanations by Homeland Security and Defense Departments officials.........


My brush with Homeland Security
by Gregory Burris


I have friends who have been held up at passport control when entering the United States, but most of their stories involve only a brief series of professionally conducted questions. I myself have experienced a certain amount of unwarranted humiliation at the hands of power-abusing authorities when crossing the borders of other countries — namely, Armenia, Bulgaria, and, most impudently, Israel where my wife and brother-in-law were detained and interrogated for several hours during our visit last year — but I have never expected to receive such treatment when entering my own country. Indeed, nobody I encountered on this day treated me rudely or abusively, but this little brush with Homeland Security revealed to me that there is a serious dearth of knowledge about the peoples and places against which Homeland Security supposedly exists to protect us...

A Global Recovery for a Global Recession

Joseph E. Stiglitz, The Nation: "A poorly designed and insufficient stimulus means that the downturn will last longer, the recovery will be slower and there will be more innocent victims. Among these victims are the many developing countries--including those that have had far better regulatory and macroeconomic policies than the United States and some European countries. In the United States a financial crisis transformed itself into an economic crisis; in many developing countries the economic downturn is creating a financial crisis."

Obama: Honoring the dead and disrupting the living

Law and order
The Partial Observer
by Discordian Pope Iacobus Rex


The preemptive, forceful imposition of ‘order’ only creates disorder. Instead, as individuals and as a people we would do well to change our mindset about how to treat each other. Instead of focusing on ‘order’ and the prosperity it’s supposed to create, our focus should be on justice...

Obama: Honoring the dead and disrupting the living

Rebirth of Reason
by Alexandra York


Now then: while our possibly duly-elected President, Barack Obama, attempts to shackle the rest of us to his locomotive speeding Left very fast, we might at least shout ‘Halt!’ on the family outings that disrupt the world and pick more of our tax-payers’ pockets for personal entertainment. On the other hand, perhaps we should encourage this Imperial, ‘Get-out-of-my-way-I’m-having-fun’ behavior, because the more time Mr. Obama and brood are out ‘on the town,’ he’ll be away from Washington town, which might — dream on! — distract him from his arrogant, self-centered, it’s-all-about-Me-and-what-I-want absorptions and his all-too-obvious desire to move beyond being a mere Rock-star President and usurp the power of a King, with the total ability to dictate his subjective will to the rest of us, then, obedient ‘Subjects’...

What’s the purpose of a correction?

The Daily Reckoning
by Bill Bonner


The whole world economy is underwater and the same economists who failed the critical test are manning the pumps. What makes anyone think they know what they are doing? On the surface of it their plan is absurd. Commerce, industry and households drown in a sea of debt; these fellows throw them a bucket of water. Asked to explain themselves, they resort to voodoo economics. ‘If we give Wall Street a lot of taxpayer money they will feel more like lending to households. That will bring a recovery,’ they say. ‘And oh yes, we’ll give money to automakers who couldn’t make it on their own, too.’ The feds are spending trillions — buying up trillions worth of Wall Street’s mistakes … bailing out failed banks, insurance firms and even automobile companies … subsidizing borrowers … and realizing their own boondoggle projects. If Ben Bernanke were a teenaged girl, his name would be written on every public bathroom wall in town...

Who are the real terrorists in Pakistan?

by Kathy Kelly


If we want to counter Al-Qaeda, if we want to be safe from further terrorist attacks, we’d do well to remember that even when we don’t recognize the humanity of people bearing the brunt of our wars, these very people have eyes to see and ears to hear. They must be asking themselves, who are the terrorists?

Suppressing free speech here at home

Future of Freedom Foundation

While the Ayattolahs in Iran are intimidating people into ceasing their criticism of the government, U.S. Justice Department prosecutors are doing the same here in the United States, specifically in the trial of U.S. vs. Robert Kahre, which is currently taking place in Las Vegas. Upset with critical comments posted by American citizens regarding the prosecution of a man who used gold and silver coins issued by the U.S. mint as legal tender, the prosecutors have been abusing their power to issue grand-jury subpoenas...

Über Steuern, Steuerverschwendung und Verantwortung

Sehr geehrte Damen und Herren,

mit der Bitte um Veröffentlichung senden wir Ihnen folgenden Veranstaltungshinweis der ödp München.

Vortrag am 14.07.:„Die Säge am eigenen Ast - Über Steuern, Steuerver(sch)wendung und Verantwortung„

Referent: Sepp Rottmayr, Netzwerk Friedenssteuer e.V.

Dienstag, 14. Juli 2009, 19.30 Uhr - Einlass 19:00 Uhr – Der Eintritt ist frei In den Räumen des Hansa-Hauses , Brienner Str. 39, Rgb., (Rahnstüberl) MVV-Haltestellen: Königsplatz (U2) oder Stiglmaierplatz (U1/Tram 20+21).

Drei ethische Dimensionen beschreiben maßgeblich die Zukunfts- und Lebens- möglichkeiten des Menschen: Gerechtigkeit, Frieden und Bewahrung der Schöpfung. Alle drei fordern Gesellschaften und Staaten heraus. Alle drei werden maßgeblich durch den Einsatz und die (Um-)Verteilung öffentlicher Haushaltsmittel also durch die Verwendung der Steuern beeinflusst. Zum Beispiel werden weltweit ca. 2,6 Milliarden € Steuermittel täglich für Rüstung, Militär und Krieg ausgegeben. Die Summe an umweltzerstörenden Subventionen ist so groß, dass sie nicht mehr ermittelbar ist. Diese Ausgaben fördern auch die Umverteilung von Geld, Einfluss und Lebensqualität zu Lasten der Armen.

Dienen Steuern noch überwiegend dem Gemeinwesen? Oder dienen sie mehr dem Machterhalt der herrschenden Schicht und deren Wahlgeschenken? Ist das Arbeitsplatzargument ein Vorwand? Wieviel Schulden hat der Staat? Wie werden sie auf die Bevölkerung umgelegt? Die Zinsen werden mit neuen Krediten bezahlt. Wer sind die Gewinner in diesem Spiel der Macht? Viele, die einige Zusammenhänge erkennen, haben ein Problem. Sie zahlen Steuern und sind so verantwortlich für deren Verwendung, für das weitere Öffnen der Schere zwischen Arm und Reich, zwischen Mächtigen und Ohnmächtigen, für militärische Gewaltanwendung und für die Zerstörung der Umwelt. Und sie sehen, dass sie und ihre Nachkommen dafür haften.

Doch was tun? - Informieren Sie sich und diskutieren Sie mit!

Mit freundlichen Grüßen

Big Health Firms Underpay Claims

Fawn Johnson, The Wall Street Journal: "Congressional investigators have discovered that large health insurers in every region of the country are relying on faulty databases to underpay millions of valid insurance claims."

Did Fed Chief Bernanke Threaten Bank of America Officials on Merger?

Mark Trumbull, The Christian Science Monitor: "Americans got an in-depth peek inside the government's management of the financial crisis Thursday, as Federal Reserve Chairman Ben Bernanke told a Congressional panel he did not threaten the jobs of officials at Bank of America. At the hearing, Mr. Bernanke faced tough questioning about whether the Fed exerted inappropriate pressure on Bank of America CEO Ken Lewis to press forward with a planned merger with Merrill Lynch late last year. At that time, Mr. Lewis had learned about some $12 billion in unexpected losses at Merrill."

The Food Industry's Darkest Secrets

Tara Lohan, AlterNet: "It turns out that figuring out the most simple thing - like what's on your dinner plate, and where it came from - is actually a pretty subversive act. That's what director Robert Kenner found out while spending six years putting together the amazing new documentary, 'Food Inc.,' which features prominent food writers Michael Pollan ('The Omnivore's Dilemma') and Eric Schlosser ('Fast Food Nation')."
