CBS News Reporter Sexually Assaulted and Beaten Amid Protest Crowd in Egypt

Posted on Feb 15, 2011 in Global & National News

Source: CBS

On Friday February 11, the day Egyptian president Hosni Mubarak stepped down, CBS correspondent Lara Logan was covering the jubilation in Tahrir Square for a “60 Minutes” story when she and her team and their security were surrounded by a dangerous element amidst the celebration. It was a mob of more than 200 people whipped into frenzy. 

In the crush of the mob, she was separated from her crew. She was surrounded and suffered a brutal and sustained sexual assault and beating before being saved by a group of women and an estimated 20 Egyptian soldiers. She reconnected with the CBS team, returned to her hotel and returned to the United States on the first flight the next morning. She is currently in the hospital recovering.

There will be no further comment from CBS News and correspondent Logan and her family respectfully request privacy at this time.

JP Morgan Has Perfect Trading Half of 2010, Only Lost Money on 8 Days

Posted on Feb 15, 2011 in Economic News

Source: Zero Hedge

For those wondering why nobody wants to trade ever again on what are now purely legalized fraud markets (and thank god Ze Germans are dumb enough to buy them at any price), here is the reason:

  • JPMORGAN RACKS UP THREE PERFECT TRADING QUARTERS IN 2010
  • JPMORGAN TRADERS HAD PERFECT SECOND HALF, BANK SAYS
  • JPMORGAN TRADERS LOST MONEY 8 DAYS IN 2010, DOWN FROM 42 IN ’09

In other words, of 260 trading days in 2010, the firm lost money on 8, or 3.1%. In yet other words, the firm made money 96.9% of the time. We’ll repeat that: JPM made money 96.9% of the time.

Hayden’s Note:

Add in their well-documented silver price manipulation and you can start seeing JP Morgan for what they truly are: market manipulating fraudsters of the highest order.  They are also one of the largest shareholders of the Federal Reserve.

Wisconsin National Guard Preps for Worker Unrest After Governor Unveils Emergency Budget

Posted on Feb 15, 2011 in Constitutional & Liberty Issues, Police, Military, & War

Source: Business Insider

Wisconsin Gov. Scott Walker, a Republican, unveiled an emergency budget proposal Friday to deal with the state’s growing budget woes. Wisconsin has a $137 million deficit this year, and faces a projected $2.9 billion budget shortfall for 2012 and 2013.

Under Walker’s plan, public employees would lose all of their collective bargain rights, except a limited negotiation of wages. State workers would also have to contribute more to their pension and health care benefit plans.

Unions erupted in outrage as they learned about Walker’s proposal. The Governor told Milwaukee Public Radio that he has briefed the Wisconsin National Guard to prepare them for any worker unrest today.

Hayden’s Note:

I don’t really have any sympathy for union workers.  While there is a fine, fine balance between the benefits of the free-market and from the union-idea, I find that the free market wins.  If the unions would be a bit more reasonable in their prices, I would support them, but they seem to cause more trouble than solution in my opinion.  Comments?...

US State Dept Tweets to Iran, Tries to Stir Up Protests

Posted on Feb 14, 2011 in Alphabet Agencies & Operations, Social Networking

Source: Activist Post

The US State Department has begun sending Twitter messages to Iranians, alluding to the “historic role” social media have played in mass protests against Iran’s 2009 disputed presidential polls.

The Twitter feeds began Sunday as US officials accused Iran of hypocrisy by supporting the anti-government revolt in Egypt but seeking to prevent anti-government demonstrations in Iran.

Hayden’s Note:

Gee, imagine that.  The State Department is trying to stir up problems and create drama in Iran.  Pretty bold of them to do it so openly on Twitter.  But, that’s a sign of the times we’re in.  The intelligence and defense community can openly taunt other countries, on social media and get away with it.  This is a blatant attempt to create another “color-coded revolution.”

On the Twitter account, USAdarFarsi, the State Department said it “recognizes historic role of social media among Iranians We want to join in your conversations.”

In another Tweet, the State Department said: “Iran has shown that the activities it praised Egyptians for it sees as illegal, illegitimate for its own people.”

In a third Tweet, it said “US calls on Iran to allow people to enjoy same universal rights to peacefully assemble, demonstrate as in Cairo.”

In Tehran, riot police on Monday fired tear gas and shot paintballs at protesters who turned what they said was a Tehran rally in support of Arab revolts into an anti-government demonstration, witnesses said....

Judge Finds MERS Has No Right to Transfer Mortgages, Finds Entire MERS Process Illegal

Posted on Feb 14, 2011 in Economic News

Source: Zero Hedge

There was a time when news, especially very bad news, moved stocks. The last time that occurred was in the middle of 2009, before most robots had any idea just how massive Bernanke’s schizoid break with reality was. Now, that the appropriate sociopathology is fully priced in, bad news tends to have an even more profound upside impact on stocks than good news, as it guarantees that the Zimbabwe stock market will be upon us far sooner than if the economy were to have to go through another inter-QE episode. Which is why the just released news out of US Bankruptcy Judge Robert Grossman of Central Islip, New York, that MERS lacks rights to transfer mortgages will likely send the entire S&P circuit breaker up.

From Bloomberg:

“Merscorp Inc., operator of the electronic-registration system that contains about half of all U.S. home mortgages, has no right to transfer the mortgages under its membership rules, a judge said…U.S. Bankruptcy Judge Robert E. Grossman in Central Islip, New York, in a decision he said he knew would have a “significant impact,” wrote that the membership rules of the company’s Mortgage Electronic Registration Systems, or MERS, don’t make it an agent of the banks that own the mortgages…”

“MERS’s theory that it can act as a ‘common agent’ for undisclosed principals is not supported by the law,” Grossman wrote in a Feb.

Highlights of the $3.73 Trillion Budget Request for 2012

Posted on Feb 14, 2011 in Political Issues

Source: Associated Press

A look at what President Barack Obama has requested in his $3.73 trillion budget for the 2012 fiscal year beginning Oct. 1.

Summary: Homeland Security gets $44 Billion with a priority on naked body scanners.  The Transportation Department gets over a half Trillion dollars for new highway and rail construction, including $53 billion for high-speed trains.  $500 million will go to the new Bureau of Ocean Energy Management and Enforcement (See my article on LOST.) and NIST, the group that dropped the ball on the Sept. 11th investigation will be getting $764 million, roughly a 17% increase from last year.

____

Agency: NASA

Spending: $18.7 billion

Percentage Change from 2011: 0.9 percent decrease

Discretionary Spending: $18.7 billion

Highlights: Obama’s space budget is about the same as the previous year, avoiding the major proposed cuts other agencies are facing, partly because of the long planned retirement of the space shuttle fleet. With Obama continuing a Bush administration decision to stop flying the 30-year-old shuttles, NASA can then shift the couple billion dollars it has been spending yearly to launch shuttles to other projects....

A Glass of Wine Each Day Helps Prevent Diabetes

Posted on Feb 14, 2011 in Health, Food News, & Big Pharma

Source: Natural News

TruthisTreason.net

A single glass of red wine may be as effective at controlling blood sugar as standard diabetes drugs, according to a study conducted by researchers from the University of Natural Resources and Applied Life Sciences in Vienna, Austria.

Previous research has shown that red wine, grape skins and red grape juice are high in plant chemicals called polyphenols. These antioxidants have been shown to help the body regulate blood sugar, and may thereby help prevent or control diabetes. In the current study, researchers studied the action of grape polyphenols on a cell receptor called PPAR-gamma, which plays an important role in blood sugar regulation, energy storage and fat storage. They found that even a small glass of wine has enough polyphenols to activate the receptor at least as effectively as the diabetes drug Avandia.

The researchers also compared the polyphenol content of 12 different wines, confirming the popular wisdom that concentrations are higher in red wine.

“This is further scientific evidence that a small amount of wine really is beneficial for health,” researcher Alois Jungbauer said.

David Icke: There Has Been NO Revolution in Egypt

Posted on Feb 14, 2011 in Blog, Editorials, & Thoughts

Source: David Icke

TruthisTreason.net

I have been watching the understandable euphoria in Egypt live on Al Jazeera television, but please, there must be a sense of perspective here – and urgently.

There has been NO REVOLUTION so far – a despicable tyrant has gone, but the army that imposed the will of that despicable tyrant for 30 years is now in charge and the Egyptian army is not only controlled by the US, it is funded by massive American military ‘aid’ – second only in scale to Israel.

It is true that the army didn’t fire on the demonstrators as it would have done before, but it did so at the time that its masters in America were calling for Mubarak to step down, in effect, and for the protesters to be left alone. Why did the US government do this after supporting the tyrant for 30 years? Because they want ‘regime change’ in Egypt as part of a domino effect across the whole Middle East to advance a much bigger agenda.

Mubarak’s demise was announced by his vice-president, the US puppet, Omar Suleiman, the head of the vicious and murderous Egyptian General Intelligence Directorate that as well as controlling the population through sheer terror also accepted Muslim detainees arrested by the US to be tortured in Egypt in ways that would have been illegal in America – the so called ‘Extraordinary Rendition’....

Algeria Shuts Down Internet, FaceBook Amidst Protests and Riots

Posted on Feb 13, 2011 in Global & National News, Social Networking

Source:Telegraph

Internet providers were shut down and Facebook accounts deleted across Algeria on Saturday as thousands of pro-democracy demonstrators were arrested in violent street demonstrations.

Plastic bullets and tear gas were used to try and disperse large crowds in major cities and towns, with 30,000 riot police taking to the streets in Algiers alone.

There were also reports of journalists being targeted by state-sponsored thugs to stop reports of the disturbances being broadcast to the outside world.

But it was the government attack on the internet which was of particular significance to those calling for an end to President Abdelaziz Boutifleka’s repressive regime.

Protesters mobilising through the internet were largely credited with bringing about revolutions in Egypt and Tunisia.

“The government doesn’t want us forming crowds through the internet,” said Rachid Salem, of Co-ordination for Democratic Change in Algeria.

On Saturday at least 500 had been arrested by early evening in Algiers alone, with hundreds more in Annaba, Constantine and Oran taking part in the so-called February 12 Revolution.

“The police station cells are overflowing,” said Sofiane Hamidouche, a demonstrator in Annaba.

Ron Paul Compares America’s Future to that of the Soviet Union, Blasts Ben Bernanke’s Cartel

Posted on Feb 11, 2011 in Political Issues

TruthisTreason.net – Kevin Hayden

Congressman Ron Paul warns Larry Kudlow on the economy. This is a ‘must watch’ video.  It is Ron Paul at his very best.

Interesting moments towards the last half include Ron Paul calling the Federal Reserve a cartel on national television, ousting Ben Bernanke, and laying down the true facts on economic theory and policy.  He also likens America’s near-future to that of the Soviet Union.

Hayden’s Note:

I would also like to address an email I received from a local reader.  In it, he urged me to post one of the recent newsletters from the Campaign for Liberty and Ron Paul.  While I am a staunch supporter and fan of Ron Paul and his ideals, I can’t bring myself to post the newsletter.  In it, they call for financial support of the Tea Party.  There are a lot of feelings regarding the current ‘Tea Party’ movement and Republicans, and my stance is that it has been co-opted by war mongers and neocons. 

But originally, it was founded FOR Ron Paul by the grassroots during his very first ‘Money Bomb,’ where supporters – myself, included – raised over $6 million dollars in one day for his Presidential campaign. ...

IMF Calls for US Dollar Replacement – Hayden’s Note Attached

Posted on Feb 11, 2011 in Economic News, Federal Reserve & Bankers

Source: CNN

The International Monetary Fund issued a report Thursday on a possible replacement for the dollar as the world’s reserve currency.

The IMF said Special Drawing Rights, or SDRs, could help stabilize the global financial system.

SDRs represent potential claims on the currencies of IMF members. They were created by the IMF in 1969 and can be converted into whatever currency a borrower requires at exchange rates based on a weighted basket of international currencies. The IMF typically lends countries funds denominated in SDRs

While they are not a tangible currency, some economists argue that SDRs could be used as a less volatile alternative to the U.S. dollar.

Hayden’s Note:

See my previous articles outlining the SDR, the UN and the IMF.

“When asked about a plan “designed to increase the use of the IMF’s special drawing rights” at a CFR conference, Geithner replied, ”we’re actually quite open to that.”  The International Monetary Fund is essentially a global bank and their “global currency” is called the SDR – or special drawing rights.

MIT Billion Price Project Scans for Daily Consumer Prices, Confirms Inflation

Posted on Feb 11, 2011 in Economic News

Source: Zero Hedge & MIT

Just in case there was still any lingering doubt that prices in the US are surging far above whatever the CPI may indicate, we present the MIT Billion Price Project. Unlike the CPI which is a gross misrepresentation of what is really happening on the ground in price terms, MIT actually compiles real time price data about a universe of products. From the methodology section: “our data are collected every day from online retailers using a software that scans the underlying code in public webpages and stores the relevant price information in a database. The resulting dataset contains daily prices on the full array of products sold by these retailers. Our data include information on product descriptions, package sizes, brands, special characteristics (e.g. “organic”), and whether the item is on sale or price control.” The attached chart confirms what anyone (but not Ben Bernanke) who actually buys goods and services in the US knows all too well.

As for monthly inflation, compared to the CPI, it is also not pretty:

Mexico’s Big Freeze – 80-100% of Crops Damaged, Expect Shortages and Higher Prices

Posted on Feb 10, 2011 in Featured Articles, Health, Food News, & Big Pharma, Urban Gardening, Farming & Homesteading

TruthisTreason.net – Kevin Hayden

I received an email from a reader regarding Mexico’s freeze damage over the last few weeks.  In summary, large-scale producers of foods, such as Sysco, have sent out emails to major vendors explaining that there might be shortages of row crop foods due to freezing temperatures that hit Mexico.  It goes on to say that Florida is normally the ‘Plan B’ as they grow many of the same varieties, but they’ve been hit hard by freezes in December and suffered slight to moderate damage to their forecasted citrus harvest. [¹]

It also details that expected shortages could be counted on 30-60 days from now and that Mexican farmers are still unsure of their next step with nearly total loss in many crops – do they try and quickly replant, hoping for a late March-April yield?  Or disc the fields and wait?  Other information coming in states that many of these crops have doubled, tripled or even quadrupled in price.  For example, a carton of tomatoes went from $6.95 all the way up to $22.95 in one week. ...
