Thousands protest bailout bonuses at bank meeting

Agence France-Presse


Thousands of protesters chanted ‘the banks got bailed out we got sold out’ as they marched through the streets of Chicago on their way to a meeting of US bankers Tuesday. Carrying signs proclaiming ‘Hold Wall Street accountable’ and ‘Foreclosures ruin communities,’ they demanded an end to massive bonuses for the bankers who they say helped bring on the financial crisis and credit crunch which dragged the United States into the deepest recession since the Great Depression. Organized by a coalition of union and community organizations, the protesters called on the bankers to stop lobbying against financial reform and to invest the trillions they received in government bailouts to stem the tide of foreclosures and invest in businesses which will help kickstart the economy...

Fed up

by Brian Doherty

For the first time in [US Representative Ron] Paul’s long career of tilting at Alan Greenspan’s windmills, popular sentiment against the Federal Reserve has its chairman, currently Ben Bernanke, running scared. Last summer Bernanke launched an unprecedented public relations campaign, explaining himself in venues from 60 Minutes to town-hall-style meetings broadcast on PBS. In July testimony to the House Committee on Financial Services, Bernanke warned that H.R. 1207 would damage global trust in the Fed’s political independence and ‘could raise fears about future inflation, leading to higher long-term interest rates and reduced economic and financial stability.’ Paul, after shepherding his idea from fringe to mainstream, is almost giddy. ‘Now the Federal Reserve is less popular than the IRS!’ the congressman told a July gathering of Young Americans for Liberty in Washington, D.C. ‘This issue is never going to go away. Who would have thought a politician could talk about Austrian economics and get applause?’ (for publication 11/09)

Anything less than full disclosure is unacceptable

Campaign For Liberty
by US Rep. Ron Paul (R-TX)


Last week a new bill was introduced in the Senate to audit the Federal Reserve. Some backers of my bill HR1207 and the existing Senate companion bill S.604 were a little miffed at this, but depending on how you think about it, this new legislation poses no great threat to our efforts. With the economy in shambles, people are looking for answers — not just because of lost savings on Wall Street, but because of lost houses on Main Street. Because of the many problems we face, the Federal Reserve and its powers over the economy have come under scrutiny...

Bombs will go off in Baghdad (whether the US is there or not)

by Patrick Cockburn


The savage suicide bombings in the heart of Baghdad yesterday show how far the violence in Iraq is from being over. It is as if those who order these bombings know that they only have to repeat these atrocities every couple of months to destabilize the country. … There is no need to imagine that the slaughter in Haifa Street yesterday was because American troops withdrew from the cities of Iraq three months ago. With or without US troops, the bombers have been able to get through in Baghdad ever since they destroyed the UN headquarters in 2003...

Black Tuesday and a Return to Big Government

By Mike Whitney

October 29, marks the 80th anniversary of the Stock Market Crash of 1929, the event which most historians point to as the beginning of the Great Depression. On Black Tuesday, traders dumped 16 million shares in one day sending the markets into freefall. In the months that followed, stocks rallied--sometimes for long periods at a time--but the underlying economy continued to deteriorate as consumers curtailed spending and cut back sharply on credit.

The Intelligent Student’s Guide to the New World Order

by Erica Carle

There is nothing new about the idea of managing others, or even of controlling the whole world. That has been the goal of social philosophers for thousands of years. However, we need not go back over ancient history. We are concerned primarily with what has been going on in our own generations. This we can understand quite well if we confine ourselves to the Nineteenth and Twentieth Centuries......

Monsanto’s Mutated World and the FDA’s Human Experiment

by Byron Richards

It should come as no surprise when a Monsanto product poisons the earth and our food. Our planet has never recovered from the forty-year Monsanto-led PCB contamination that was banned in the U.S. in 1977. To this day environmental PCBs continue to degrade into highly toxic furans and dioxins, wreaking all manner of human health problem. The new case in point involves several aspects: 1) the bizarre alteration of the nature of food itself by splicing viral, bacterial, and other life forms into the DNA of.......
