Ending aid to Israel

Ending aid to IsraelThe Obama administration has abandoned its feckless effort to induce Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu to accept a 90-day settlement freeze designed to kick start peace negotiations — and save Israel from suicidal settlement expansion. Any doubt that the settlements could be Israel's death warrant should have been eliminated by the recent fire that consumed northern Israel. The Minister of the Interior, an ultra-Orthodox 18th-century man - and 21st century political hack - named Eli Yishai chose funnelling resources to settlements rather than investing in firefighting equipment.

This is typical. The ultra-Orthodox settlers have little use for Israel itself. They really only care about Biblical Israel (which is mostly the West Bank). What's a fire in boring old pre-'67 Israel to a Bible-thumping fanatic like Yishai and his Shas Party? He's got Palestinians to drive out of their homes. In any case, the Obama administration had offered Netanyahu an astonishing $3.5bn for a 90-day freeze in part of the West Bank (in addition to the annual $3.5bn aid package), plus the promise to use our veto in the UN Security Council on Israel's behalf. And most importantly, the US pledged to never ever ask Israel for another settlement freeze again.


Whose Country Is This Anyway?

Did you actually think that this country is 'yours'? Do you understand that the Congress that supposedly represents you only works three days a week? And we won't even begin to discuss all the vacations and junkets they take when they could do it all from behind a computer. Do you know that the clients they represent are in reality the world's largest corporations and that they don't give a damn about you and never have? You and I are less than Road-Kill to these Robber-Barons, and that has been true at least since November 22, 1963. For those who might not remember that day ­ it was the day that JFK was murdered. When he died, the hopes and dreams of millions around the world died with him.


Mossad: was this the chief's last hit?

A personal insight into Mossad and the murder of a top Iranian nuclear scientist.

Inside a secret bomb-proof building in a Tel Aviv suburb, which Google Earth does not include on its website, some of the occupants last week exchanged high-fives at their work stations. According to insiders, several sent each other the same message: The Chief’s Last Hit.


The Fed Usurps US Sovereignty For The British Empire

The fed was established by the networks allied with the British Empire with the clear intent of seizing control over US credit and financial affairs, usurping those constitutionally defined powers on behalf of private financial interests. At this point, the Fed, not the US government has control over these affairs, with no effective opposition from our elected government.


Still the Best Congress Money Can Buy

US CongressTwo years after the economic meltdown, most Americans now recognize that that money has inexorably institutionalized a caste system where everyone remains (at best) mired in economic stasis except the very wealthiest sliver.

The Great Depression ended the last comparable Gilded Age, of the 1920s, and brought about major reforms in American government and business. Not so the Great Recession. Last week, as the Fed’s new growth projections downsized hope for significant decline in the unemployment rate, the Commerce Department reported that corporate profits hit a record high.


Growing Up Digital, Wired for Distraction

Students have always faced distractions and time-wasters. But computers and cellphones, and the constant stream of stimuli they offer, pose a profound new challenge to focusing and learning.

Researchers say the lure of these technologies, while it affects adults too, is particularly powerful for young people. The risk, they say, is that developing brains can become more easily habituated than adult brains to constantly switching tasks — and less able to sustain attention.


A Full Body Scan of American Corruption

Michael ChertoffIn the United States, if a policeman stops you for a traffic violation, and you offer him a $20 bill to forget about the whole thing, you’ll likely end up in jail.

But if you leave your Federal government job and go work as a consultant to the very industry you used to regulate, you won’t go to jail—you’ll grow rich. Very rich.
