US Recognizes Al-Qaeda War Criminals As Libya’s Official Government

Unbelievable, though not unexpected, departure from reality.

Tony Cartalucci
July 16, 2011

Associated Press reports that, “U.S. Secretary of State Hillary Rodham Clinton says the Obama administration has decided to formally recognize Libya’s main opposition group as the country’s legitimate government. The move gives foes of Libyan leader Moammar Gadhafi a major financial and credibility boost.”

In an act of utter desperation as the brutal, though entirely ineffective Libyan rebels flounder in their NATO-backed offensives against Libya’s ruling government in Tripoli, the US has now recognized the Libyan rebels as the country’s “legitimate government” allowing the US to directly fund, arm, and support with US troops, the Al-Qaeda tied war criminals operating out of Benghazi. The recent farcical move indicates that France’s Foreign Minister Alain JuppĂ© has failed in his threats and posturing to get Libya’s Qaddafi to stand down, and that the NATO-backed war of aggression is about to reach new heights of brutality most likely including the involvement of US, UK, and French troops on the ground.

Libyan Rebels are Al-Qaeda – On Record

Operating out of the Libyan cities of Benghazi, Darna, and Tobruk, Libyan rebels themselves have admitted that many of their members are drawn from Al Qaeda. The London Telegraph has reported that Libyan rebel leader Abdel-Hakim al-Hasidi had admitted many of his fighters had just returned from fighting US forces in Iraq. The Telegraph also reported that Hasidi himself had “earlier fought against “the foreign invasion” in Afghanistan, before being captured in 2002 in Peshwar, in Pakistan. He was later handed over to the US, and then held in Libya before being released in 2008.” A United States Army West Point report confirms indeed that fighters drawn from the Libyan cities of Benghazi, Darna, and Tobruk were second only to Saudi Arabia in contributing forces to fight US troops in Iraq.

Photo: According to US-educated Mahmoud Jibril, “prime minister” of the contrived “Libyan Transitional National Council,” in a May 12, 2011 talk before the Brookings Institution, “what’s taking place is a natural product of the globalizational process that started in the mid-80′s.” He most recently confirmed allegations reported by HRW regarding rebel atrocities but claimed they represent only a “few incidents” and that those responsible would be “brought to justice.”
This illustrates the absurdity of both the “War on Terror” and the current NATO-backed operations unfolding in Libya, where the same known terrorists are used both as an excuse for global intervention and continued foreign occupation while concurrently provided arms, air cover, legitimacy, and now direct funding while participating in global intervention. On full display for the world to see is how the global corporatocracy manipulates and exploits all sides of any given conflict for their own nefarious self-serving ends. One must wonder what races through the minds of US and UK pilots as they provide air support for the very men they strafed in Iraq and Afghanistan.

10 Signs That The American People Are Starting To Freak Out About The Condition Of The Economy

The Economic Collapse
July 16, 2011
10 Signs That The American People Are Starting To Freak Out About The Condition Of The Economy 160711feature
All over America, restlessness and frustration are growing. It has now been almost three years since the great financial crash of 2008, and yet the U.S. economy is still a complete and total mess.  In fact, there are all sorts of signs that things are about to get even worse, and the American people are just about fed up.

Virtually every major poll, survey and measure of consumer confidence shows that the American people are becoming more pessimistic about the economy.  Millions of hard working Americans that worked their fingers to the bone for their employers and that did everything “right” are sitting at home on their couches tonight staring blankly at the television.  Many of them still have a hard time believing that they were laid off and that there is nobody out there that wants to give them a good job.

There are millions of other Americans that won’t get much sleep tonight because they will spend much of the night rolling around in bed wondering how they are possibly going to be able to pay the mortgage.  We have never faced such an extended economic downturn in modern U.S. history, and a lot of people are starting to freak out about the condition of the economy.  As Gerald Celente likes to say: “When people lose everything and have nothing left to lose – they lose it.”

Every single month, the number of good jobs continues to go down.  Wall Street actually rewards companies that have a good “outsourcing strategy”.  As I have written about previously, a growing percentage of the jobs that are being “created” these days are very low paying jobs.  But you can’t support a family, pay a mortgage or even afford decent health insurance on what you would make stocking shelves at Target or passing out buckets of chicken for KFC.

The American people keep waiting for “hope” and “change” to show up, but all they get instead are more helpings of “despair” and “frustration”.

Sadly, most Americans still cling to the hope that if the “next election” will just turn out the right way that things will be okay.  But the truth is that things seem to stay on pretty much the same course no matter who we put into office.

For many years the status quo seemed to be okay for most people, but now we are starting to reap the results of the economic seeds that we have sown.

Now our economic decline is starting to accelerate and people are starting to panic.  Most Americans may not know why all of this is happening, but what many of them do know is that something in their gut is telling them that things have gone terribly, terribly wrong somehow.

The following are 10 signs that the American people are starting to freak out about the condition of the economy….
#1 Things have already gotten so bad that Americans will literally trample one another just to get on a waiting list for rental assistance vouchers.  Just check out the following excerpt from a local news report about a recent incident in Texas….
At least eight people were hurt Thursday morning while scrambling to line up for a limited number of Dallas County rental vouchers — after waiting for hours in their cars.
People lined up Thursday morning to apply for Dallas County Section 8 housing vouchers. Dallas County sheriff’s spokesman Kim Leach estimated the crowd at about 5,000.
Video of this incident is posted below.  One of the people that was trampled was a pregnant woman....

#2 Almost every measurement of consumer confidence is going down.  For example, the Conference Board’s consumer confidence index fell from 61.7 in May to 58.5 in June.
#3 The Reuters/University of Michigan consumer sentiment index has fallen to 63.8 after being at 71.5 in June.  It is now the lowest that it has been since the last recession “ended”.
#4 The Rasmussen Consumer Index is down 9 points from a month ago.
#5 A recent poll taken by Rasmussen found that 68 percent of Americans believe that we are actually in a recession right now.

Latest economic casualty: Basic defense for the West

World Net Daily

NATO nations struggling with economic woes are on the verge of being unable to defend themselves in a crisis, and the go-to backup of the Unites States of America is warning it may not be able to catch everything that falls, according to a report from Joseph Farah's G2 Bulletin.
Informed defense experts say that the European defense challenges are so great that the current economic crisis facing members of the North Atlantic Treaty Organization has greatly diminished nearly all European defense capabilities.
They say the problem is further compounded by the fact that the United States, which also is a NATO member, has its own budget crisis and problems of an overstretched military in waging four wars in Afghanistan, Iraq, Libya and a counter-terrorism war in Yemen.
Further, there now have been calls from Congress to "get tough" with Syria, meaning military intervention, and some observers believe the U.S. even has begun to engage Iran in a proxy war, most notably in Iraq in recent months.

Weiss Ratings Downgrades United States Debt to C-Minus

Weiss Ratings

JUPITER, Florida (July 15, 2011) — Weiss Ratings, an independent rating agency of U.S. financial institutions and sovereign debts, has downgraded the debt of the United States government from C to C-minus.

The C-minus rating for the U.S. reflects a continued deterioration in the weaknesses cited in the Weiss Ratings release of April 28, 2011, including heavy debt burdens, shaky international stability, and poor economic health.

Weiss Ratings senior financial analyst Gavin Magor commented: “Our downgrade today is not contingent on the outcome of the debt ceiling debate in Washington. It is driven exclusively by the numbers, which indicate that, in addition to a decline in the long-standing weaknesses we noted three months ago, the U.S. has already lost the golden halo that helped guarantee liquidity and acceptance of its government securities in global markets.”

On the Weiss Ratings scale, which ranges from A (excellent) to E (very weak), a C-minus rating is the approximate equivalent of a triple-B-minus on the scales used by other credit rating agencies, or approximately one notch above speculative grade (junk).

For the Weiss Sovereign Debt Ratings on all 49 countries covered, click here. For more information on the Weiss Ratings approach, refer to our white paper, “Introducing The Weiss Sovereign Debt Ratings.”


About Weiss Ratings

Weiss Ratings, the nation’s leading independent provider of financial strength ratings on banks, credit unions, insurance companies as well as sovereign debt ratings on 49 countries, accepts no payments for its ratings from rated entities. By adhering to its independent business model, Weiss outperformed Standard and Poor’s, Moody’s, A.M. Best and Duff & Phelps (now Fitch) in warning of future life and health insurance company failures according to a 1994 study by the U.S. Government Accountability Office (GAO), while also outperforming its competitors in identifying the safest insurers, according to its follow-up study using the GAO’s research methodology. Similarly, Weiss was the only one to identify, in advance, nearly all major banks that failed or required a federal bailout in the 2008-2009 debt crisis.

CountDown To Collapse?

July 15, 2011

If there is anyone out there who believes that Congress and the President will somehow come to their senses and decide to cut spending while voting down the request to raise the debt limit - then you are living in Bizarro world along with those in congress and the President too!

The President has already made it clear that he will raise the debt ceiling, and Geithner has said the same thing in the recent past. It is clear to see that our Rogue government is not sincere in bringing about financial recovery due to the fact that they want to continue to raise the debt ceiling, instead of paying down the debt!
( 2+2=4 , not 5)!

Peter Schiff explains this simple formula that congress and the President are using against the American people, and that formula is called  a ponzi scheme. Threats are being used not only against the American people, but also those countries from which the United States are indebted to as well! According to Peter Schiff, the President is essentially telling China, and the other countries, " hey, if we can't keep borrowing money from you, then we will default on our loans, or simply print more moneyand pay you with devaluing currency."

Peter explains that it will only be a matter of time when the United States will have to restructure it debt due to its wreckless fiscal policies that have brought us to this disaster, and that the U.S. has defaulted before in 1971, when the U.S. dollar was taken off the gold standard. Basically the U.S. had promisary notes in the form of U.S. Federal Reserve notes that assured countries of being paid in gold. After 1971, we basically are now promising nothing to these creditors, and this is bad enough, but now Obama is using the debt ceiling more as a threat to these countries and to Americans.

Peter argues that those who are serious in congress need to vote against raising the debt ceiling, and get serious about cutting spending so that we can pay down the deficit.

Ron Paul Blasts GOP Establishment In Dramatic First Campaign Video

Steve Watson
July 14, 2011
Ron Paul
Congressman Ron Paul has hit the ground running in Iowa and New Hampshire with a dramatic 2012 presidential campaign ad that directly targets the GOP leadership.
According to Paul’s campaign team, the Congressman has taken out a six figure ad buy in the two states, traditionally home to the first primary and caucus to ultimately decide the party nominees.
The video is produced in the style of a trailer for a huge summer blockbuster film and is sure to be a viral hit online where Paul has dominated the GOP field for some time.
“The following preview has been approved for all audiences by RESTORE AMERICA NOW” the opening screenshot reads as the ad spot begins with a rousing chorus of timpani drums and ascending violins.
The ad focuses on the current debt ceiling fight, casting it in the light of a momentous struggle between “compromise” and “conviction” and chronicling past instances of Congress voting to raise the debt ceiling.
“This August the next chapter will be written, ” the ad states.
“14 trillion in debt, millions unemployed, the dollar in decline,” it continues.
“Will our party’s leaders choose the mistakes of the past?” the ad questions. As a photo of House Speaker John Boehner and Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell hits the screen the narrator asks “Will they choose compromise or conviction?”
“We know where they stand,” the narrator says as images of House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi, President Obama and Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid fill the screen.
The screen fades to black, the music stops.
“One candidate has always been true,” the narrator asserts. “Ron Paul. Cut spending. Balance the budget. No deals.”
Watch the stirring ad below:

Dollar Falls as Fed Announces Possible QE3

Steven C. Johnson
July 13, 2011
The dollar fell against most major currencies on Wednesday after Federal Reserve Chairman Ben Bernanke said the central bank could resort to more monetary stimulus if a sluggish U.S. economy weakens further.
That pushed the euro near $1.42, moving it further from the prior session’s four-month low beneath $1.39 and on track for its best day since mid-January.
Surprisingly swift Chinese growth data also helped divert attention, at least temporarily, from a worsening euro zone debt crisis after Fitch Ratings said an ambitious Italian deficit reduction plan would help stabilize its credit rating.

Governors: No Partnership With Communist China!

July 13, 2011

It doesn't make sense. Our economy is a shambles because our industry has been driven to China by high taxes and myriad regulations. As a result China has accumulated hundreds and hundreds of billions of dollars by selling us products that we formerly made. Now Communist-Chinese-run corporations are showing up in the U.S. to buy up land and natural resources, and establish businesses. And, what's frightening about all of this is that many of our governors are salivating over the potential for Chinese investments in their states to the extent that they are considering establishing multi-faceted partnerships with their communist Chinese counterparts to expedite these developments.

Grassroots concern over these budding partnerships between U.S. governors and Communist Chinese officials is increasing as the first U.S.-China Governors Forum convenes in conjunction with an annual meeting of the National Governors Association in Salt Lake City July 15-17.

Read "U.S.-China Governors Forum: Not All Sweetness & Harmony" by William F. Jasper to learn the details of this new initiative between our U.S. governors and their Chinese communist counterparts that was set up by President Obama and Secretary of State Hillary Clinton earlier this year.

Art Thompson, CEO of The John Birch Society has sent an open letter to all 50 governors urging them not to participate in the U.S.-China Governors Forum in Salt Lake City later this week.

Take a good look at the world-famous image above of the freedom-loving Chinese man facing down a whole column of tanks in Tiananmen Square in 1989. Do you want your governor participating in a forum designed to develop continuously deepening partnerships with officials in the same Communist Party that sent the tanks to Tiananmen Square?

Time is short. The U.S.-China Governors Forum begins on this Friday, July 15. Phone and/or email your governor and ask him or her to boycott the forum. In short, tell them: "No Partnership With Communist China!"

A brave new banking system – while public is told banking system is healthy FDIC quietly grows troubled bank list by 180 and adds over 1,600 employees in the last two years to deal with bank failures.
July 13, 2011

The banking system in the United States rests on a very thin layer of faith and that faith has been shaken by the current financial crisis. The retail banking system is largely a facade that now latches on to taxpayer bailouts to fund speculative investments through their investment banking divisions. The repeal of Glass-Steagall has been an absolute failure for allowing this commingling of financial functions. I find it interesting that while we get a public stance that all is well on the banking front, we find that the FDIC keeps adding employees to handle bank failures and the number of problem institutions continues to grow. Of course this is the kind of information that is buried deep in websites and financial statements while most of the press focuses on distractions.

Obama Serves the Continuing Executive Branch Dictatorship

July 11, 2011
Alex outlines how Obama is establishing a dictatorship in the White House. Recently, It has been reported by the Huffington post that Obama plans to ‘Unveil Gun Control Reforms’ by using executive actions once again dodging the U.S. House of representatives and the Constitution. This is just one the most recent event in a series of moves by Obama to cause the executive branch to shift into an unquestionable ruling dictatorship. Another White House proposal covered in this video is a plan to enact a 143 year old civil war clause to help solve some of the current U.S. debt issues.

It is important to note that Obama himself is not about to become the US dictator. These dictatorial powers are being re-routed to the office of the president itself by an unelected group of the global elite who are ultimately interested in establishing a One World Government ruled by themselves. It doesn’t matter which puppets are switched in and out of the office of the president, as long as it goes unchecked, the New World Order will continue to advance their imperialistic scientific genocide agenda in our name.

The next, worse financial crisis

Commentary: Ten reasons we are doomed to repeat 2008


BOSTON (MarketWatch) — The last financial crisis isn’t over, but we might as well start getting ready for the next one.
Sorry to be gloomy, but there it is.
Why? Here are 10 reasons.
Click to Play

Wall Street's grim future

Wall Street is hit by another round of layoffs. What will a post–Dodd-Frank Wall Street will look like?
1. We are learning the wrong lessons from the last one. Was the housing bubble really caused by Fannie Mae, Freddie Mac, the Community Reinvestment Act, Barney Frank, Bill Clinton, “liberals” and so on? That’s what a growing army of people now claim. There’s just one problem. If so, then how come there was a gigantic housing bubble in Spain as well? Did Barney Frank cause that, too (and while in the minority in Congress, no less!)? If so, how? And what about the giant housing bubbles in Ireland, the U.K. and Australia? All Barney Frank? And the ones across Eastern Europe, and elsewhere? I’d laugh, but tens of millions are being suckered into this piece of spin, which is being pushed in order to provide cover so the real culprits can get away. And it’s working.

2. No one has been punished. Executives like Dick Fuld at Lehman Brothers and Angelo Mozilo at Countrywide , along with many others, cashed out hundreds of millions of dollars before the ship crashed into the rocks. Predatory lenders and crooked mortgage lenders walked away with millions in ill-gotten gains. But they aren’t in jail. They aren’t even under criminal prosecution. They got away scot-free. As a general rule, the worse you behaved from 2000 to 2008, the better you’ve been treated. And so the next crowd will do it again. Guaranteed.

3. The incentives remain crooked. People outside finance — from respected political pundits like George Will to normal people on Main Street — still don’t fully get this. Wall Street rules aren’t like Main Street rules. The guy running a Wall Street bank isn’t in the same “risk/reward” situation as a guy running, say, a dry-cleaning shop. Take all our mental images of traditional American free-market enterprise and put them to one side. This is totally different. For the people on Wall Street, it’s a case of heads they win, tails they get to flip again. Thanks to restricted stock, options, the bonus game, securitization, 2-and-20 fee structures, insider stock sales, “too big to fail” and limited liability, they are paid to behave recklessly, and they lose little — or nothing — if things go wrong.

4. The referees are corrupt. We’re supposed to have a system of free enterprise under the law. The only problem: The players get to bribe the refs. Imagine if that happened in the NFL. The banks and other industries lavish huge amounts of money on Congress, presidents and the entire Washington establishment of aides, advisers and hangers-on. They do it through campaign contributions. They do it with $500,000 speaker fees and boardroom sinecures upon retirement. And they do it by spending a fortune on lobbyists — so you know that if you play nice when you’re in government, you too can get a $500,000-a-year lobbying job when you retire. How big are the bribes? The finance industry spent $474 million on lobbying last year alone, according to the Center for Responsive Politics.

Watching A Flatlining Economy

Bob Chapman
International Forecaster
July 10, 2011

Government debt will be in the vicinity of $1.5 trillion this year. Ever since May 16th short-term debt has been frozen at about $14.3 trillion. Up until May 16th the year-to-debt fiscal debt was $783.135 billion. That means if no August 2nd agreement is reach, $275 billion will be needed up to August 2nd, a total of about $700 billion will be needed by 9/30/11, the end of the fiscal year. Those funds are to come from federal pensions, Social Security and Medicare. How will these funds be paid back? We do not know, but we would guess there could be legislation to commandeer private pensions, 401Ks and IRAs. On the other hand an alternative is for the Fed to create $700 billion and buy the Treasury debt. That alone, with normal funding, could reach over $2 trillion. That means they would have to create another additional $850 billion to keep the economy from slipping into a great dark pit. That means additional net funds that would have to be created out of thin air of close to $3 trillion. That means mega inflation 2 to 3 years down the line. In addition the US debt to GDP should be more than 100% by the end of the fiscal year 9/30/11.

We guess the Fed can keep interest rates near zero until borrowers finally get fed up with low returns and a loss in principal, as the dollar deteriorates. It was four years ago when rates were 5-1/4%. Rates in time will return to that level and cause economic and financial devastation. We can also assure you Treasury buyers are not driving rates down and bond prices up, the Fed can take full credit for that. Those who seek safety in low interest Treasuries are giving up purchasing power. In today’s markets there is no such thing as safety.
There are those that believe it is time to start to raise interest rates and that the time for stimulus is past. They are probably correct, but the problem is the economy cannot stand on its own. Although deflationary depression will come eventually to force it now would mean a great war or series of wars would now have to begin.

It also has become self-evident to the populace or at least half of Americans that we cannot keep amassing debt and boosting the economy with stimulus. Their fears are reflected via much higher inflation and major unemployment, both of which are worsening daily. They have experienced three years of this, so to be told by the President, the Fed, the Treasury and Wall Street that what they are experiencing is transitory, reaches deaf ears.

Destruction of the U.S. Economy - Peter schiff

Mark Matheny
July 10, 2011

Peter Schiff discusses the necessity of the U.S. government to cut spending and for the average American to start saving instead of spending as well. He explains that the measures being taken by our government and the Federal Reserve are actually causing the problems in the economic sectors of employment, housing, National debt, etc.  

Although he doesn't say it outright, it is clear that the destruction of the U.S. economy is by design.
