August 13, 2011. San Francisco. The news caused many Americans to do a double-take. They just couldn’t believe what they heard yesterday. Official statements from San Francisco city officials either contradicted themselves at best, or pointed to the tactics of a dictatorship at worst. Either way, the city of San Francisco has just brought the US into the international world of government crackdowns on peaceful citizen protests.

August 2, 2011. Hostilities have flared once again on the Lebanese Israeli border yesterday. While the majority of incidents have involved heavily armed Israeli soldiers firing on unarmed Palestinian protestors, tensions were still high after Israeli soldiers massacred Lebanese marchers in May.

July 29, 2011. Washington. With the Republican Party fighting an internal civil war and unable to come together with one coherent message or position on the debt ceiling crisis, it looks as though the United States is headed for a different kind of crisis – a Constitutional crisis. With time just about out on avoiding a financial default by the US Federal government, experts and critics alike are quietly suggesting what might happen if a compromise on the nation’s borrowing authority isn’t…Continue

July 27, 2011. Beijing. Workers are celebrating in the streets and thanking America’s Jobs Czar for moving so many high-paying, high tech jobs to their communities today. The only problem is, they are Chinese workers throughout China. Jeff Immelt is not only President Obama’s Jobs Czar, he is also the CEO of General Electric. In addition to being the parent company all the NBC family of broadcasting networks, GE is also one of the largest military contractors in the US.

July 25, 2011. Washington. After emergency meetings by both Republican and Democratic Congressional leaders this weekend, it looks like the nation is on its way to a settlement in the debt crisis negotiations. While most political experts predicted a final compromise, it appears like it’s going to be a one-sided victory for the Tea Party led House Republicans. Media outlets all over Washington are reporting on the two final plans drawn up by each side, and neither one raises taxes on the…Continue

July 23, 2011. Oslo. Immediately after the largest and deadliest attack in Norway since World War 2, government officials, the media and anyone who heard of the tragic incident, speculated on who might be responsible. In Norway, conservative Christians automatically blamed Middle East terrorists. Middle East experts and scholars suggested it was the neo-Nazis. The neo-Nazis blamed the Norwegian government and the New World Order. In the end, they were all wrong.

July 21, 2011. Baghdad. Three days ago, Iranian Revolutionary Guard troops crossed the border into Iraq and launched a major military offensive against the Iraqi Kurds. The first announcement came out on July 18 via Iran’s state news agency. Since then, little word has escaped from the semi-autonomous region of northeast Iraq that once was Kurdistan. Iranian authorities report that they have captured three rebel Kurdish military bases. They also caution that the fighting has been ongoing for…Continue

July 20, 2011. Washington. The US House of Representatives approved a bill yesterday that would end the debt crisis in America before the Aug. 2 doomsday deadline. With the vote mainly along Party lines, this Republican sponsored plan has little hope of becoming law. Fortunately, there are a total of four options Congress has to choose from. Unfortunately for the American people, none of them spell good news for the average citizen and taxpayer.
‘Plan A’ as it’s being referred to…Continue

July 18, 2011. Washington. With a White House press announcement, it was revealed that Elizabeth Warren would not be appointed Chairman of the Consumer Financial Protection Bureau. One of the three women Time Magazine called ‘the new sheriffs of Wall Street’ would not be the first Chair of the consumer protection agency she herself first suggested. Instead, President Obama feared a rebellion by Senate Republicans if he tried to nominate the woman who nobly stood guard on behalf of the…Continue

July 17, 2011. Woodbury, MN. Is the Catholic Pope really the anti-Christ? There seems to be some confusion over Presidential candidate Michele Bachmann’s religious views. Normally, political pundits try to steer away from religion. But when any particular candidate cloaks themselves in their religious beliefs, it generally becomes an open invitation for scrutiny. Just as then Senator Obama nearly lost the race for President over his ties to the Rev. Jeremiah Wright, Michele Bachmann is now…Continue

July 16, 2011. Washington. Late last night, OpenSecrets.org released their much anticipated tabulation of the 2012 Presidential candidates’ official second quarter fundraising totals. With recent changes to election finance law, money is more important than ever in an attempt to capture a party’s nomination for President. And while nobody was surprised to see President Obama top the list of…Continue

July 16, 2011. Berlin. Over the past week, a series of violent, organized attacks have occurred throughout Germany upon small, government sponsored farms. The farms being targeted are growing experimental, genetically modified vegetables. With global backlash against consuming food that’s been genetically altered in a lab spreading, wheat farms in Australia were struck just two days ago.

July 15, 2011. Washington. Earlier this week, NPR published a story which credited a General Accountability Office report with calling the Pentagon’s Defense Centers of Excellence for Psychological Health and Traumatic Brain Injury, as dysfunctional. That’s the name of the specialized medical division Congress created in 2007 to handle the massive number of US casualties coming home from Iraq and Afghanistan with brain injuries, as well as post traumatic stress disorder. The reason for the…Continue

July 13, 2011. Washington. With the nation on the brink of financial destruction again, Congressional leaders and the President held another round of emergency talks today. At issue is how, or whether to, raise the debt ceiling. Together, Congress and the President have reached the nation’s debt limit of $14.3 trillion dollars. On August 2, America automatically freeze its own credit accounts. Normally, that would sound like a wonderful idea. But with Social Security checks and military pay…Continue

July 12, 2011. Washington. It’s all over the media. Even Time Magazine published a special feature touting the news. House Speaker John Boehner (R-OH), third in line for the Presidency, is no longer the most powerful opposition leader inside the GOP. After walking out of Vice President Biden’s debt ceiling talks last week and taking complete control of the new round of talks with President Obama yesterday, Rep. Eric Cantor (R-VA) appears to be the new Sheriff in town.
While leaders in…Continue

July 9, 2011. Washington. Federal banking regulators took the Fourth of July week off to celebrate America’s independence. But they could have been celebrating something else. America’s skyrocketing rate of bank failures appears to be slowing. At the midway point of 2011, the FDIC had shuttered 48 commercial banks. That puts the industry on track to end three straight years of increased bank failures. Over that time…Continue

July 8, 2011. New York. For almost four years, the American people have heard about a grand, covert, financial scam that collapsed America’s entire economy, starting with the housing industry. And for just as long, they’ve waited patiently for someone, anyone, to go to jail. While they wait, the architects of America’s economic collapse are still sitting pretty in their Wall Street penthouses. But now we know why.

July 6, 2011. Washington. Today marks the second anniversary of the great economic recovery, or so the economic experts and the Federal government have declared. The only problem is, those two segments of America’s population are among the small sliver of the country that has experienced a recovery. The rest of the American people are still mired in the Great Recession of 2009. Read the…Continue
