Obama declares swine flu a national emergency

article_obamaWASHINGTON (Reuters) – President Barack Obama has declared 2009 H1N1 swine flu a national emergency, the White House said on Saturday.

The declaration will make it easier for U.S. medical facilities to handle a surge in flu patients by allowing the waiver of some requirements of Medicare, Medicaid and other federal health insurance programs as needed, the White House said in a statement.

The U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention said on Friday that swine flu has become widespread in 46 of the 50 U.S. states, a level comparable to the peak of ordinary flu seasons but far earlier and with more waves of infection expected.

Obama signed the statement on Friday night.

The White House statement said the declaration was intended to prepare the country in case of “a rapid increase in illness that may overburden health care resources.” It was similar to disaster declarations issued before hurricanes hit coastal areas.

“It’s important to note that this is a proactive measure — not a response to a new development,” an administration official said....

Tax Credit Boosts Home Sales, But Risks Fraud

Posted on Oct 24, 2009 in Economic News

Existing home sales were up 9.4 percent in September. That's the highest level in more than two years. Both new and existing home sales are benefiting from a government program to give first-time buyers a big tax credit. Industry advocates want to see it renewed, but critics point out the program is creating opportunities for fraud.» E-Mail This     » Add to Del.icio.us Click here to read entire article Newegg.com is your source for the lowest priced computer items, mp3 players, LCD screens, etc. If you are the author or agent of this article and would like your RSS feed removed from www.TruthisTreason.net, please email 'contact@truthistreason.net' and your RSS Feed will be deleted.

The Fed’s Latest, Greatest Round of Asset Inflation

There goes oil, surging past $80-a-barrel. That’s up 150 percent from the December low, in case you’re keeping score.

Gasoline? Wholesale prices are up more than 40 cents a gallon in just under a month …

Heating oil? Grab an extra blanket! It just jumped to the highest price in almost a year …

Corn? It’s up almost a buck a bushel since mid-September …

Wheat? Rising. Soybeans? Yep. Sugar? Near a 26-year high. And I hope you’re not planning on eating too much chocolate this Halloween. Replacing it will cost a lot more considering cocoa futures just soared to the highest level in almost three decades.

If you’re a resource-sector investor, this is all great news!  

But for everyone else, it just means higher prices at the pump … a dramatic escalation in heating bills … pricier bread … more expensive cereal … and so on.

And you know what? Federal Reserve policymakers probably couldn’t be happier! They want prices to surge. In fact, they are deliberately pursuing reckless monetary policies and a strategy of dollar debasement in order to ENSURE we get yet another round of asset inflation!...

Windows 7 Raises Security Bar, Experts Say By Stefanie Hoffman, ChannelWeb Microsoft (NSDQ:MSFT) no doubt has high hopes for Windows 7, launched Thursday, but the new operating system might also have significant long-term implications for the security industry, experts say. So far, Windows 7 has left the gate with a strong start. Microsoft CEO Steve Ballmer told analysts, partners and media attending the Windows 7 release party in New York that, so far, 45,000 retailers are currently selling the new operating system, and he said he expected 300 million Windows-based PCs to be sold this year. Despite the promising launch, Microsoft still faces a slew of hurdles with Windows 7, not the least of which were the poor performance and dwindling adoption rates of its predecessor, Vista,

Mom admits to "Balloon Boy" hoax: court record Fri Oct 23, 2009 7:34pm EDT Source: Reuters DENVER (Reuters) - The mother of a Colorado boy thought to be aboard a homemade helium balloon has admitted to investigators the whole thing was a hoax, according to a court document made public on Friday. The local sheriff had already said the October 15 "Balloon Boy" incident was a publicity stunt and expected felony charges to be filed against the 6-year-old boy's parents, Richard and Mayumi Heene. The live television images of the silver saucer-like balloon soaring through the Colorado skies captivated audiences until the boy turned up in the family's attic. Public sympathy turned to outrage when the family's account began to unravel. According to a copy of a search warrant affidavit

While a number of resourceful people have converted shipping containers into make-shift shelters at the margin of society for years, architects and green designers are also increasingly turning to the strong, cheap boxes as source building blocks.

Shipping containers can be readily modified with a range of creature comforts and can be connected and stacked to create modular, efficient spaces for a fraction of the cost, labor, and resources of more conventional materials.

Discover some of the exciting possibilities of shipping container architecture, from disaster relief shelters to luxury condos, vacation homes, and off-the-grid adventurers. See what makes them green as well as cutting edge.

Senior Australian Politician Warns about U.S. Debt Default within Next Few Years

Posted on Oct 23, 2009 in Economic News

October 23rd, 2009  Source: The Age (via Cryptogon) THE Nationals Senate leader Barnaby Joyce is openly canvassing an economic upheaval that would dwarf the current global financial crisis, triggered by the US defaulting on its sovereign debt within the next few years. In unusually pessimistic comments for a senior political figure, Senator Joyce said the US Government was running such large deficits and building up so much debt that it was in a similar position to Iceland or Germany before World War II. In a Senate estimates hearing on Wednesday night, he asked Treasury secretary Ken Henry what would be the implications of an American debt default for the Australian economy. Dr Henry warned that canvassing extreme scenarios could alarm the community. ”I don’t mind

Derivatives Bill Amended to let Big Banks Keep Contracts Secret Thumbnail

Derivatives Bill Amended to let Big Banks Keep Contracts Secret

Posted on Oct 23, 2009 in Economic News

The House Agriculture Committee approved legislation Wednesday beefing up regulation of the kind of opaque derivatives many blame for causing the financial crisis, but while proponents celebrate, critics say the bill exempts some transactions involving the very institutions -- big banks -- most responsible for the collapse. Over-the-counter (OTC) derivatives -- essentially privately-negotiated derivatives contracts -- aren't traded on exchanges nor do they pass through clearinghouses. These contracts, which can act either as insurance (to transfer risk) or as a simple bet (like what many say brought down AIG), have been blamed for accelerating what was a credit crisis into a full-blown financial crisis and subsequent recession. They brought down the likes of AIG and the Wall Street inve

Fall of the Republic So, Alex Jones' new movie has debuted, 'Fall of the Republic'.  I have not had a chance to watch it myself yet, so I will hold my comments for now.  He's had some decent movies in the past, but over the last few years I have found him to be rather troubling.  Those that know him and his site, www.InfoWars.com, understand all too well what I mean.  You either love him or hate him, but I give credit where credit is due and he occasionally hits one outta the ballpark. I'm not calling this one a grand slam quite yet (let me watch it at least, eh?), but for YOUR viewing pleasure, I present you his latest film - Fall of the Republic. Let me know if it's any good, okay? Source: InfoWars.com Fall Of The Republic documents how an offshore corporate cartel
