Wednesday, July 28, 2010 Make Changes or Face Another Fiscal CrisisNevada's Economic Misery May Be America's Future
So many homes in Las Vegas have been foreclosed upon that banks rarely bother to hang a "For Sale" sign on the front lawn anymore. Instead, visitors identify bank-owned properties by the brown grass and the 8.5 x 11-inch sheet of paper taped to the front door or the garage
Is Las Vegas Going Under? It's hard to find a home bought before 2009 that isn't underwater and very few landlords, when running credit checks, look for foreclosures or short-sales on a tenant's record. Otherwise, a manager couldn't fill a building.
Nevada has a greater concentration of economic misery than any other state. The state's unemployment rate, which in June edged up to 14.2 percent, has risen faster during the past year than it has anywhere else, and nearly six percent of all homes across the state's desert landscape received a foreclosure filing in the first six months of the year.

Banksters are Coming for Your Retirement Next
As we near the End Game, the banksters and their government accomplices are coming for the last of your wealth -- your retirement money. Recent headlines about the IMF pressing the U.S. to reduce its debt is the first sign of things to come. They have already methodically gutted the assets of most public pension funds by knowingly investing those funds in toxic junk.

Gulf Coast now a BP police state as law enforcement conspires with BP to intimidate journalistsThis is scary stuff, folks. Now we have a police state in America. No one can deny it. You can't argue the point anymore. It is documented fact, and it's happening right now in the Gulf Coast.
If you pick up a professional camera and start snapping photos of a BP refinery, or a BP cleanup vessel, or a beach with an oil boom on it, you risk being followed, detained, questioned and intimidated. And if you don't surrender your own rights and consent to an illegal search of your photos or film footage, you will be hauled into a federal holding facility and held by the Department of Homeland Security until they feel like letting you go.
Your rights as a free citizen have now been obliterated. America is now a fascist corporatocracy that answers to the financial interests of the corporations -- at the expense of the freedoms of the People.Government Trying to Sweep Size of Oil Spill Under the Rug, Just As It Tries to Sweep the Economic Crisis, 9/11 and Everything Else Under the RugAs I previously pointed out, the Gulf oil spill is very similar to 9/11, because - in both cases - the responders helping with rescue and clean up were getting sick ... but were told they don't need any safety gear. In addition, the government is keeping scientists away from "ground zero" of the oil spill and - for that reason - scientists cannot accurately measure the size of the oil spill. BP has also tried to cover up its blunders by lowballing spill estimates, keeping reporters out of areas hardest hit by the oil and threatening to arrest them if they try to take pictures, hiding dead birds and other sealife, and using dispersants to hide the amount of spilled oil (the dispersants are only worsening the damage caused by the spill).
The government is complicit in all of these cover-ups. Indeed, the Obama administration has made it a felony to get near enough to oiled wildlife and beaches to film them.Is the IMF about Ready to Muscle U.S. Taxpayers?
I smell a rat.
The IMF has long been a bought, and paid for, muscle arm of the U.S. government and the banking elite.
The play goes like this. Banks loan money to third world countries that have no chance in hell of paying the money back. The IMF comes in with "austerity" programs that include heavy new tax burdens on the working class. The revenue from the new taxes will, of course, go to payoff the banking elite. It's a sick game, but the eliteseem to get their jollies bypulling this scam in country after country.
It appears the elite appear to want to up the ante. It appears they are getting set to turn the guns inward and go after the hard earned money of Americans.
We Want More: Congress Looks to Tax ATM Withdrawals, All Financial Transactions
A debt-free America? Yes its possible
One idea for raising taxes to pay down the debt is the bill introduced this February by Rep. Chaka Fattah (D-Pa.). His Debt Free America Act (H.R. 4646) would impose a 1 percent transaction tax on every financial transaction whether paid by cash, credit card or any form of financial transfer, the only exception being transactions involving the purchase or sale of stock. Theoretically, everyone would pay one cent on the dollar for every such transaction in America every day whether $3 million on a $300 million business acquisition, $300 on the purchase of a $30,000 car, or $5 on a $500 ATM withdrawal.

US Special Forces Foreign Internal Defense Operations, FM 3-05.202, Feb 2007This leaked military document is critical to understanding the militaristic tactics being perpetrated upon innocent civilians on Canadian soil. The tactics used by US special forces abroad, as laid out in this booklet, are virtually the same tactics that are now progressively being utilized by our police forces. To understand and expose their tactics is to render them useless. Must read and please pass this on!
"US Special Forces Foreign Internal Defense Operations, FM 3-05.202, Feb 2007
FM 3-05.202: Special Forces Foreign Internal Defense Operations is the 110 page manual for US Special Forces support, including undeclared support, of foreign governments against internal revolt or insurgency, such as in El Salvador, Colombia, Somalia and the post occupation governments of Iraq and Afghanistan. The manual was made US military doctrine (policy) in February 2007. It supersedes the 1994/2004 version FM 31-20-3: Foreign Internal Defense Tactics Techniques and Procedures for Special Forces, which Wikileaks described as follows:
The document, which is official US Special Forces policy, directly advocates training paramilitaries, pervasive surveillance, censorship, press control, restrictions on labor unions political parties, suspending habeas corpus, warrantless searches, detainment without charge, bribery, employing terrorists, false flag operations, concealing human rights abuses from journalists, and extensive use of "psychological operations" (propaganda) to make these and other "population resource control" measures palatable."

Is this a sign of things to come for the rest of the Canadian real estate market? BNN asks Brian Ripley, CEO, Oakes Ripley Associates. "Top is in...wages falling"Drop in home sales may be sign of peakExisting home sales dropped sharply in Canadas two most expensive markets, a further indication that the real estate market may have peaked.
House prices and sales to decline, market survey says
OTTAWA House prices continued to climb higher across Canada in the second quarter of 2010, but sales and prices are expected to fall in the coming months, according to a Royal LePage House Price Survey and Market Forecast released Wednesday.Canadas Housing Bubble About to Pop?House sales in Vancouver and Calgary are plummeting. Is the top in Canadas ridiculously inflated housing bubble finally in? Canadian May building permits unexpectedly plungeOTTAWA The value of building permits fell by a much-larger-than expected 10.8 per cent in May from April, slipping to $6 billion, Statistics Canada reported Tuesday.
Analysts polled by Bloomberg had called for a two per cent month-over-month drop.
Vancouver home sales drop sharply
Vancouver's housing market slowed considerably in June, with 30 per cent fewer sales than a year ago.Toronto house sales sink 23%Toronto-area Realtors sold 8,442 resale homes in June, a 23 per cent drop from the level of the same month a year ago.Is Canadas Housing Market Going Bust?This morning, Statistics Canada reported a staggering 10.8% drop in Canadian building permits. Permits for residential construction decreased 5.3% while non-residential construction fell 18.3%. So, is the Canadian real estate market finally reverting to the mean? It may be too early to make a comprehensive statement, but the leading indicators are starting to look soft especially since over the last year, the average home price [in Vancouver] has risen 14%, to around C$1 million.As those in the US know, once the bidding lust for houses starts to wane, everyone seems to awaken and ask, Wait a minute. Is a 2,000 square foot house really worth over $1 million? These are the inquiries which turn real estate dreams into nightmares.

Fact and Fiction - Obama and NetanyahuFiction
Parsing the words - One interpretation
Washington and Tel Aviv cant speak honestly to each other
The influential commentator Dr Anthony Cordesman of the Centre for Strategic and International Studies said that America's commitment to Israel's security "does not justify or excuse actions by an Israeli government that unnecessarily makes Israel a strategic liability when it should remain an asset".
Netanyahu hears no discouraging words from Obama
A blue-and-white Israeli flag hung from Blair House. Across Pennsylvania Avenue, the Stars and Stripes was in its usual place atop the White House. But to capture the real significance of Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu's visit with President Obama, White House officials might have instead flown the white flag of surrender.
THE APPARENT RIFT BETWEEN ISRAEL AND THE U.S. IS A MIRAGE.
Obama cannot be seen to be caving in to Israel when it comes to resolving the Palestine issue and US efforts to create a Palestinian state and so, for the sake of public opinion, needs to be seen resisting Netanyahus insistence that settlement building and building in Jerusalem continues. Of course, Netanyahus insistence, in turn, is designed to placate Zionist public opinion.
The fact is that once the final confrontation with Iran has taken place, the whole question about Palestines future, settlements in the West Bank and building in East Jerusalem becomes academic. Israel will, so they hope, have defeated Hezbollah and Hamas and occupied south Lebanon and the Gaza, together with a full occupation of the West Bank, while the US will, so they hope, have bombed Iran to the negotiating table and regime change. The US will accept Israeli occupation of the West Bank, the Gaza and south Lebanon as fait accompli.
There will be no Palestinian state. The US will accede to Israels creation of a Greater Israel. The West will support Israel and the Arab states, having witnessed the destruction of the Iranian regime, will become utterly compliant.
That, at least, is what the Israelis and the US hope will happen.
What Peace negotiations are you talking about?
TRUE TELL 8:28 PM ET July 2, 2010Like snake-oil salesmen, the Israelis have been using the so-called peace negotiation ploy to establish facts on the ground (settlements) with full complicity from the US media and the US Congress.
Obama has finally come to feel the heavy boot of the Jewish lobby over his thin black neck; he is hopeless and helpless and in no position to stand to the lobby. For the Israeli lobby, it was only a matter of time before challenging Obama. They waited for his election euphoria to die down and his approval rating to slip and both factors are reality now. Obama is in no position to challenge Netanyahu on peace or settlements; Netanyahu has more clouts in Congress than Obama, even with Obamas own party.
The best Obama can do when he meets Netanyahu is to seek forgiveness and ask Netanyahu to intercede with the Jewish lobby and Congress not to block his domestic agenda. By examining the political assets of both men, you can easily see the frailty of President Obama in comparison with Netanyahu.
Netanyahu got Hollywood on his side; he got the main stream media executing his PR game, he got Wall Street and AIPAC working for him, and he got the US Congress. Obama got a bunch of brain-washed citizens who can hardly tell where Palestine is on the map.
STEALING THE LAND BY THE ZIONISTS WON'T CHANGE HISTORYWhen Herzl convened the Zionist Conference in Basel in 1897 to call for Homeland for the Jews; Jews were hardly one-twentieth of the population of Palestine. When Britain's Balfour Declaration promising a Jewish state in Palestine was issued in November 1917, there still were only an estimated 55,000 Jews among another 670,000 Muslim and Christian Palestinians. Massive ethnic cleansing of Palestinians took place between 1917 and 1948 by three Zionist terror groups; the Haganah, the Stern Gang and the Irgun. Palestinian villages were ransacked and thousands of Palestinians were murdered in cold blood to terrify Palestinians to flee their homes. 750,000 to 800,000 Palestinians were not permitted by Israel to return to their homes after its creation in 1948. Some of the brutal massacres committed by the Israeli terrorists then were at the Palestinian villages of Deir Yassin and Kafr Qasim. The Israeli historian Ilan Pappe documents that era in details in his book The Ethnic Cleansing of Palestine. Palestines was where Israel is now; stealing the land by the Zionists is not a license to falsify geography and fabricate History.

Europes Fiscal Dystopia: The New Austerity Road to Neoserfdom
Somebody must take a loss on the economy's bad loans and bankers want the economy to take the loss, to "save the financial system." From the financial sector's vantage point, the economy is to be managed to preserve bank liquidity, rather than the financial system run to serve the economy. Government social spending (on everything apart from bank bailouts and financial subsidies) and disposable personal income are to be cut back to keep the debt overhead from being written down. Corporate cash flow is to be used to pay creditors, not employ more labor and make long-term capital investment.

So, the world's elites have decided to focus all their efforts on generating another Great Depression. Their cunning plan is to destroy their countries in order to save them:
the current sovereign debt crisis is about something much more interesting: it's another battle in a war for dominance between "our" integrated, impersonal global economic system and traditional nation-states. At issue is whether a nation-state serves the interests of the governed or it serves the interests of a global economic system. Who's winning? The global economic system, of course
How's That Recessioney, Oily Thing Working Out For Ya?
Let's be honest: We live in stunningly, jaw-droppingly, ridiculously absurd political times. Here's the story in a nutshell: A far-right predatory overclass has spent the last thirty years undoing the hard-fought gains of the mid-twentieth century, which had produced a robust middle class and vastly more economic and social justice in America than the country had ever known before. These regressives used every kind of deceit imaginable to persuade unsophisticated voters to choose candidates whose real agenda was to assist their plutocratic puppetmasters in fleecing the very same people who voted for them.
Stimulus or Austerity: The People vs. the Banks
The most powerful nations in the world met recently at the G-20 in Toronto and managed to agree on only one thing of significance: the need to reduce deficits, half by 2013.Implied by the statement is the need to lower deficits via austerity, meaning eliminating or reducing social programs.
Why does every mainstream political pundit or corporate CEO fanatically agree that reducing deficits is the most important thing to do now? Let Obama explain:
if financial markets are skittish and don't have confidence in a country's fiscal soundness, that is also going to undermine our recovery."Apparently, the most important policy for the world economy cannot be said in plain English.What does Obama mean? Essentially, he is saying that financial markets should determine how wealth is distributed and how the economy is directed.
How the State Causes CollapseAs I have explained in the past, what constitutes a bubble can be understood as the result of perpetuated myths or distortions of the truth. When one believes something to be true, they behave in accordance with that belief; when that belief becomes exposed as fraudulent, whatever effort they had put forward up to that point is lost and any effort they had planned on putting forth in the future needs to be redirected to some new project. The example I had previously used was a child writing letters to Santa and then finding out Santa is not real. After such information comes to light the behavior of the child changes and he no longer writes wish lists to Santa. In the Austrian Theory of the Business Cycle, distortions in the interest rate result in misallocations of capital towards less productive ends. When those ends are discovered to not be as productive as alternatives, the structure of production needs to be realigned. But as Ive described it, the theory can be applied to a broader social context beyond just basic production. The State is such a bubble: it is perpetuated primarily by faith in its unique legitimacy. Bubbles burst; in the case of the State, how does that occur?
States destroy community
In Ireland, a Picture of the High Cost of AusterityDUBLIN As Europes major economies focus on belt-tightening, they are following the path of Ireland. But the once thriving nation is struggling, with no sign of a rapid turnaround in sight. Nearly two years ago, an economic collapse forced Ireland to cut public spending and raise taxes, the type of austerity measures that financial markets are now pressing on most advanced industrial nations.
Some EXCELLENT Iran-Israeli analysis:
The Delusional Lobby
I guess this is what happens to people who never hear the word "no."...Note: the lobby's next big move will come when it starts telling the US government that Iran sanctions have failed and it's time to allow Israel to attack. And, as Yogi Berra famously said, it'll be déjà vu all over againGaza blockade 'easing' is a facade
However, the fact of the matter is that this easing' of the blockade is another in a long line of Israeli methods of pacifying the so-called international community and providing a facade for further illegal activities. Strike on Iran would be destabilizing'A military strike against Iran would be "incredibly destabilizing" to the region said the US chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff Admiral Mike Mullen.
THE COMING IRAN WAR.
But, while the attack on Iran will be seen by the world as the main event, the real purpose for the war will be happening on Israels doorstep.
At the same time as Iran is being attacked, Israel, using the excuse of pre-empting retaliation for attacking Iran, will attack both Hezbollah in Lebanon and Hamas in the Gaza and then move to occupy south Lebanon up to the Litani River and the Gaza Strip. Israel will also likely fully occupy the West Bank.
This is the scenario that the US and Israel would prefer to see happen; a quick overwhelming move against all of Israel and Americas enemies that concludes with the defeat of the Iranian regime and, thus, regime change, together with the demise of Hezbollah and Hamas. This then will give the Israelis a free hand in creating a Greater Israel that ultimately includes the Gaza Strip, south Lebanon up to the Litani River, the West Bank and the Golan Heights. It will also provide the US with an even stronger ally in the Middle East and also a neutered enemy. Obviously, Iran Would Retaliate Against U.S. AttacksOne need only think about how our government would react if a state or group launched unprovoked targeted attacks on major military and energy facilities to see how foolish this is. It wouldnt matter to our government if the attack was targeted or not, and it wouldnt matter to the American public what absurd rationalizations the attackers used to justify what they were doing. If a foreign military started bombing Sandia and LANL and assorted military bases throughout the Southwest and declared ahead of time that it would do this, I doubt that Washington would respond with a shrug. Oh, theyre only attacking our nuclear labs and military facilitiesthats all right, then! Americans would not respond to this by casting blame on their government for inviting attack, but would instead become excessively deferential to whatever course of action the government proposed and would mute whatever other criticisms of the government they may have had in the past. We would be fools to think that Iranians would respond differently.
