The U.S. heat wave is slowly shaking the foundations of American politics. It may take years for the deep rumble to evolve into an above ground, institution-shattering earthquake, but U.S. society has changed for good.

Interview of Noam Chomsky

The First Shots of the Trade War (tags)

With the G-20 summit approaching, cheerful talk of “international cooperation” fills the White House press-room. These comments carry with them the implication that “free trade” is integral to “cooperation,” a fact made explicit in the last meeting of the G-20. There, in the name of “united action,” world leaders agreed not to install any new protectionist measures. Since then, protectionist measures have flourished. Instead of global cooperation we have its opposite: international tensions are on the rise as trade disputes sharpen.

It's Official: Healthcare Reform is Dead (tags)

The “transparent government” that President Obama guaranteed during his electoral campaign has become yet another broken promise. On August 14th, the Huffington Post revealed a memo containing details of “the deal” that Obama cut with health care mega-corporations in secret White House meetings. And although the White House denies the authenticity of the memo, the details are consistent with earlier reports from other national media outlets.

Obama vs Insurance:Pillow fights (tags)

Obama and the health insurance companies are pillow fighting. Ready to concede, the Democrats are already saying the ya-hoo attended townhalls have stopped them from passing through legislation, what about the townhalls against the war(s)? This fight is stopping because it never really was meant to win. Just another pillow fight with big business. The media wants us to believe that there is some sort of mass movement out there that is opposed to any sort of health care that is not run by the private sector.

A Hundred and Fifty Years Later and Marx Still Prevails (tags)

Marx Was Right But Don’t Tell Them

That Damned Marx (tags)

No matter what they say, the bourgeois cannot escape the fact that Marx's ideas still hold water after all these years. His analysis of the capitalist system, its laws and contradictions are as relevant today as they were 150 years ago. The serious journals of capitalism confirm this.

Boston Logan Airport,9/11,WTC,Barney Frank,SEC,Israeli Penny Stock Scam and Bloody Murder (tags)

Does Barney Frank plan to confront Christopher Cox for allowing the fraudulent Israeli penny stock ICTS International,(incorporated in the USA !) ,that provided 'security' to his Massachusetts constituents on 9/11 to remain an active penny stock up until at least June 5 of this year and to continue its penny stock share distribution or dumping scheme(defrauding investors) while the W Bush regime provided them immunity from prosecution or litigation ?

Stanford University,Dr. J.Cooke,Stem Cells, Nicotine, Medical Fraud and Money Laundering (tags)

Stanford law professor Joseph Grundfest can tell us if Endovasc,a Stanford University penny stock 'pump and dump' fraud,was also a money laundering operation.In my opinion all money made by pump and dump fraud is also money laundering and all proceeds should be seen as such even any that find their way to,or end up as political 'donations' or bribes to,Republicans.

Kuwait,Saudis,Richard Rainwater,George W Bush,Tom DeLay & 5.6 Ton cocaine bust in Mexico (tags)

Ranked among the 100 wealthiest Americans, Rainwater backed George W. Bush in four separate business ventures, including the Texas Rangers baseball team from which Bush, who had been drilling “dry holes” until then, profited handsomely. In a heated 1994 Governor’s race, Texas Democratic Governor Ann Richards charged Rainwater “owned" her Republican opponent Bush.- Daniel Hopsicker, http://www.madcowprod.com

SEC,Christopher Cox,Hillary Clinton and Barbara Boxer Aid CIA'S In-Q-Tel penny stock fraud (tags)

Before beginning any criticism of Barbara Boxer for anything whatsoever it would be unfair to not to praise her for her stance against the Bush Regime's Iraq war from the very beginning.Below is a list of the sad minority of Senators who had the courage or common sense not to place that decision in the hands of the mad man some call 'president', George W Bush.Of course the far right hypocrite Hillary Clinton is another story.She who cries of a 'far right conpiracy' against her and hubby Bill Clinton,is one.

Warren Buffett,apologist for Utah Overstock.com Patrick Byrne,Senator Bennett stock fraud (tags)

Mr. Buffett acknowledged that he has a "friend" who is very concerned with naked short selling, a reference to Patrick Byrne, the chairman and chief executive of Overstock.com, an online "close-out" retailer. He said that while the many companies that attract a lot of interest from short sellers "very often" are later revealed to be frauds, he noted that "The one my friend runs is not at all." Mr. Buffett and Mr. Byrne go back a long way; Mr. Byrne's father, Jack Byrne, was long-time head of Geico, Berkshire's automobile-insurance subsidiary. - from Wall Street Journal

SEC Commissioner Christopher Cox vows to bring James Dale Guckert/Jeff Gannon to Justice (tags)

According to a quote by Mr.Cox of a few days ago this would appear to be the case. The truth is more likely his and SEC attorneys' wish to gag both professional business journalists including at the WSJ as well as defrauded investors such as myself who wish to blow the whistle on SEC corruption and fraud.

Utah Senator Bob Bennett,Overtock.con's Patrick Byrne,Tangled Up in Striptease Stock Scam (tags)

Interesting that the http://www.ncans.net 'naked short' penny stock mafia chose a strip joint or lap dance club in Las Vegas as its only address and now we find Steve Wark ex-Clark County Republican commissioner is connected to the fraud whose only known address is the Cheetah Club of Las Vegas,the only strip or lap dance club to my knowledge ever investigated, for whatever reason, under the Patriot Act.

Schwab:SF SEC Uses McCarthy tactics to protect right wing stock fraud (tags)

Due to unforseen publicity SF SEC backed down from subpeonas issued to Dow Jones business journalists Herb Greenberg and Carol Remond.It appears to be a warning from the Beltway to all journalists to back off of Patrick Byrne and http://www.ncans.net investigation that could implicate many politicians and far right Beltway denizens including James Dale Davidson,founder of National Taxpayers Union and of the 'Clinton killed Vince Foster'smear campaign who may launder money in penny stock scams and illegal pump and dump scams for some Beltway politicos and insiders.Charles Schwab knows a lot but he ain't talking and the SF SEC IS NOT LIKELY TO ASK.Are there any investigative journalists left in the Bay Area ? Didn't think so.This is related to a Patrick Byrne and his Overstock.com pump and dump vs. Rocker Partners Hedge Fund ongoing in Marin County as I type.

There's an explanation for all this (tags)

“It will be a hard pill for many Americans to swallow--the idea of doing with less so that big business can have more...Nothing that this nation, or any other nation, has done in modern economic history compares with the selling job that must be done to make people except this reality.” (Business Week 10-12-74.)

What Does it Mean to be 'Pro-Labor?' (tags)

Do you want evidence of how ad-driven media works to silence labor? Read this follow-up to "'Alternative' Media Quietly Sells Out to Whole Foods Market" [ZNet, April 28, 2005]. Mark T. Harris answers Dragonfly Media's denial that it gave Whole Foods Market free advertising for a year in its Chicago publication, Conscious Choice, following the grocer's complaint about a UFCW ad that ran under the magazine's old management. Dragonfly says neither would it promise Whole Foods no more union ads. But when union activists attempted to purchase new ad space last December, Dragonfly said no.

Report From Afghanistan by Sonali Kolhatkar, 5-27-05 (transcript) (tags)

Pensions hijacked: Bankruptcy scam rips off 119,000 United workers (tags)

CHICAGO — “You might see me coming down the aisle 20 years from now with my walker,” said flight attendant Melissa Madden. Faced with the slashing of their pensions to the tune of $6.6 billion, she and other United Airlines flight attendants here warn that if United gets away with using bankruptcy to dump its pension obligations, the nation’s entire defined-benefit pension system — and the futures of the 44 million workers it covers — could come tumbling down. Retirement for American workers could become a thing of the past.

The Wal-Mart Museum of Art (tags)

"There is no better example of how politics is intertwined with art than the spectacle of an art museum being founded by a rapacious corporation well known for exporting US jobs overseas and profiting from foreign sweat shop labor."

Business Week : Role of Fiercely Pro-Israel Neocon Hawks in Convincing Bush to Go to War (tags)

"The film goes on about filial revenge and oil, but it never ventures onto really touchy turf -- namely the role of fiercely pro-Israel neocon hawks in convincing Bush to go to war. The elephantine Mr. Moore conveniently fails to mention that other pachyderm in the Democratic room. Why didn't Fahrenheit go there, Mr. Moore?"

US Economy as an Accelerated War Economy (tags)

"A recovery based on job losses, wage cuts, increased health care costs, an incomparable increase in student fees and growing poverty is not John Kerry's idea of an American economy that works for America's workers.."

Nurses Vs. Tenet Healthcare (tags)

7/24/03 Business Week reported: Neither the blazing sun nor the rush-hour traffic could deter the angry knot of nurses who gathered on July 23 at the Skirball Cultural Center in Los Angeles, site of Tenet Healthcare's (THC ) annual shareholder meeting. The nurses -- some wearing black bandanas across their mouths -- were protesting Tenet's efforts to prevent the California Nurses Assn. from unionizing some of its hospitals.

Will Pre-emptive War Make America Safer? (tags)

Another aspect of U.S. safety is threatened by pre-emptive war. The Founding Fathers realized that not all enemies are foreign. What keeps U.S. citizens safe is adherence to the U.S. Constitution. Losing any part of the Constitution is precedent for losing other parts. Congress - the American people's representative - now has lost the constitutional right to declare war.

Union members run for Congress (tags)

Even a brief look at the make-up of the 107th Congress helps explain why workers are catching hell these days. Yes, it is true that there are “friends of labor” who have 100 percent AFL-CIO voting records, but they find themselves out-gunned in a Congress whose 535 members include 150 millionaire lawyers, bankers and other business people.
