Why I Dislike Israel
By Philip Giraldi

October 06, 2012 "
Information Clearing House" -   Even those pundits who seem to want to distance U.S. foreign policy from Tel Aviv’s demands and begin treating Israel like any other country sometimes feel compelled to make excuses and apologies before getting down to the nitty-gritty. The self-lacerating prologues generally describe how much the writer really has a lot of Jewish friends and how he or she thinks Israelis are great people and that Israel is a wonderful country before launching into what is usually a fairly mild critique. Well, I don’t feel that way. I don’t like Israel very much. Whether or not I have Jewish friends does not define how I see Israel and is irrelevant to the argument. And as for the Israelis, when I was a CIA officer overseas, I certainly encountered many of them. Some were fine people and some were not so fine, just like the general run of people everywhere else in the world. But even the existence of good u…

Europe on the Brink

Europe on the BrinkEconomicsLeave a Comment In this documentary, Wall Street Journal editors and reporters examine the origins of Europe’s debt crisis and why it spread with such ferocity to engulf much of the continent and threaten the entire world. Had Europe faced up to the Greek problem earlier, the crisis would likely be more contained and manageable today. It should have reached a broad pact with Athens by trading growth-promoting reforms for long-term financial guarantees and relief. But that would have meant telling taxpayers in Germany and other northern European countries that they might have to finance some of the bailout and recovery costs (as they will end up doing anyway). And it would have meant acknowledging that heavily exposed German and French banks might have to be recapitalized at taxpayer expense. Watch the full documentary now

Haren 5

Sonja heeft een nieuwe reactie op uw bericht "Haren 3" achtergelaten:Militairen oefenen tussen winkelend publiek Rotterdam
Hoe vaak is er de afgelopen halve eeuw in Rotterdam een overstroming van de Maas geweest, waarbij er 'geen voedsel meer,' was 'geen drinkwater voorhanden en de infrastructuur en het openbaar bestuur' plat lagen? Waarom dan die militaire oefeningen in de Maasstad? De militarisering van de samenleving. Is dit democratische beslist in Rotterdam? Zo nee, waarom, niet? En waarom zetten de commerciele massamedia hier geen vraagtekens bij? Misschien kan de studente Ikram Taouanza, die zo'gebonden' is 'aan Rotterdam omdat ik hier van jongs af aan alle kansen heb gekregen om zelf de regie over mijn leven te hebben' hier een column over schrijven in verband met de'regie' van het een en ander.

Zelfgenoegzaam Egocentrisme 2

'U weet dat in showbusiness, politiek en al het andere perceptie de werkelijkheid is.' Bill O'Reilly.
Noam Chomsky:

'New data indicate that summer ice might be gone by 2020, with severe consequences. Previous estimates had summer ice disappearing by 2050. “But governments have not responded to the change with any greater urgency about limiting greenhouse emissions,”  [...] “To the contrary, their main response has been to plan for exploitation of newly accessible minerals in the Arctic, including drilling for more oil” – that is, to accelerate the catastrophe. This reaction demonstrates an extraordinary willingness to sacrifice the lives of our children and grandchildren for short-term gain. Or, perhaps, an equally remarkable willingness to shut our eyes so as not to see the impending peril.'

How Big Companies Use Plain English to Rob You Blind By Mark Karlin, Truthout | Interview

David Cay Johnston: Our federal judiciary is in the thrall of corporatism, encouraged by the fact-free teachings of Milton Friedman, who in a famous 1970 New York Times Magazine article declared that a corporation's only social responsibility was to make profits. That is now a dogma embedded in every financial news report and our political rhetoric even though it is not at all what the law says. Why would we listen to an economist talk about the law, especially when economists often begin with the premise that they are examining an ideal situation, not the real world? Read more...
