War on whistleblowers turning into the war on journalists?

Published on Apr 10, 2012 by

The war on whistleblowers in the US continues. The Obama administration is going after yet another whistleblower. John Kiriakou, a former official for the CIA, was indicted on Thursday for leaking information out to the press. Kiriakou is no stranger to whistleblowing and was responsible for leaking the torture technique of waterboarding by the CIA on terror suspects. Jesselyn Radack from the Government Accountability Project joins us for more on the latest indictment and gives us her take on how the war on whistleblowers is turning into the war on journalists.

 

Israel Bars Airlines From Flying Protesters– The Beginning of Something Even Worse?

The fascists who run Israel have taken a new action that threatens worldwide consequences. The Guardian reports
Israel has forced low-cost airline Jet2.com to cancel the tickets of three women from Manchester intending to travel to Bethlehem via Tel Aviv this weekend for a gathering of pro-Palestinian activists.

Jet2.com informed the women by email that the airline would refuse to carry them and no refund would be paid. The move follows pressure on airlines from Israel to ban known activists.

The article reports that Israel is taking this policy with other airlines as well.

 

Secret Service Scandal Spreads To Military

The situation deteriorated further Saturday when the Defense Department announced that five military personnel, who are staying at the same hotel, violated curfew Wednesday night and have been confined to their rooms. The department will conduct its own investigation upon their return to the United States, said Air Force Gen. Douglas Fraser of the U.S. Southern Command, where the military personnel were from.

U.S. Roads and Bridges Being Built By Chinese Companies As American Economy Teeters on Collapse

A recent report by ABC has confirmed what many have claimed for years; infrastructure jobs are going directly to foreign countries, particularly China.

Antidepressants Could Cause Harm to Heart, Brain, and Bones

Did you know that roughly 10% of the American population suffers from depression? It isn’t exactly a coincidence, with the FDA approving a wide variety of damaging foods and drugs that many millions of Americans consume each day. The FDA isn’t helping the population with their approval of the dozens of antidepressant medications on the market – it in fact is doing the exact opposite...

 

U.S. Sanctions Aim To Provoke An Iranian Pearl Harbor

“As the sanctions morph into a virtual blockade, they raise the specter that all blockades do — of provoking a violent response.  Just as dangerous is the specter that the sanctions will drag on without producing tangible results, impelling covert or overt American action against Tehran to save face.” – Juan Cole,“Why Washington’s Iran Policy Could Lead to Global Disaster: What History Should Teach Us About Blockading Iran.”

 

Obama’s Guantanamo “war court” in session

The lawyers argued that, thus shackled, Nashiri was unable to participate in preparing his defense because it revived the trauma of being similarly shackled during the years of torture to which he was subjected while in CIA custody.

The motive for preventing the airing of these issues is clear. A heavily redacted 2004 CIA inspector general’s report provides an indication of the criminal methods to which Nashiri was subjected. The report acknowledges that Nashiri was waterboarded 83 times, a form of induced drowning which was prosecuted as a war crime after the Second World War.

Soros: If Germany Persists, Europe Is Over

Mike Rivero Comment: In 1933 the world's bankers declared a global boycott against Germany because Germany was refusing to go along with the private central banking model imposed on the rest of the world, indeed had abandoned the private central bank imposed on them after WWI in favor of a government issued value-based currency which had triggered the "German Miracle" economic recovery. It was the anger and resentment from this attempt at a global boycott that provided the kindling for WW2.

Can we please not be so stupid that we make the same mistake twice? Or does that ink used on money destroy brain cells when you fondle the notes?

 

Romney to welfare mothers: ‘You need to go to work’

Republicans have spent the last week attacking President Barack Obama after a Democratic CNN contributor said that Ann Romney, who is the mother of five, had “never worked,” but it turns out that presumptive GOP presidential nominee Mitt Romney has also said mothers on welfare “need to go to work.”

“I wanted to increase the work requirement,” Romney told an audience in New Hampshire in January. “I said, for instance, that even if you have a child 2 years of age, you need to go to work.”

“And people said, ‘Well that’s heartless.’ And I said, ‘No, no, I’m willing to spend more giving day care to allow those parents to go back to work. It’ll cost the state more providing that day care, but I want the individuals to have the dignity of work.’”

Argentinian Farmers take on Monsanto and Philip Morris over epidemic of birth defects

Monsanto, Philip Morris and other U.S. tobacco giants knowingly poisoned Argentinean tobacco farmers with pesticides, causing “devastating birth defects” in their children, dozens of workers claim in court.

The farmers grow tobacco on small family-owned farms in Misiones Province and sell it to U.S. tobacco distributors. Most of Argentina’s tobacco is grown in Misiones, a rural northeastern province.

The farmers claim the tobacco companies asked them to use herbicides, pesticides and other toxic products made and distributed by Monsanto, and assured them the products were safe.

 

THE "WIPE OFF THE MAP" CONTROVERSY: A Rare Admission From Israel in Relation to the "Iran Threat"

Was it a momentary lapse of concentration or an honest admission?

Last week, in an interview with Israel's Deputy Prime Minister Dan Meridor in Jerusalem, I heard something I have not heard before.

It's when I challenged him on the biggest talking point of all, Iran's supposed determination to "wipe Israel off the face of the map," that Meridor seemed to stumble outside the lines of the agreed narrative.

Meridor: [Iran's leaders] all come basically ideologically, religiously with the statement that Israel is an unnatural creature, it will not survive. They didn't say 'we'll wipe it out', you are right, but [that] it will not survive, it is a cancerous tumor, it should be removed;

Mike Rivero Comment: And please remember: Iran is home to one of the largest Jewish communities in the Middle East, outside of Israel. These are people who are very proud of both their Iranian and their Jewish heritage, and they are not immigrating to Israel any time soon.

Which leads us to another interesting question; should Israel decide to attack Iran, will they not, then, be killing brother and sister Jews in such an attack?!?

 

IRS Largely Ignores Super Rich

Published on Apr 15, 2012 by

Via Stephanie Mencimer at Mother Jones: "In 2009, IRS commissioner Doug Shulman said in a speech that the IRS had formed a new group of auditors who were going to be directing their attention at a special group of taxpayers: the super rich. Dubbing them "global high wealth individuals," Shulman promised that his agency would be taking a hard look at people who had tens of millions of dollars worth of assets and income tied up in complicated financial dealings that often involved overseas banking and aggressive tax avoidance strategies...Two-and-a-half years later, though, the effort to target the super rich has proven underwhelming. According to a new study by the Transactional Records Access Clearinghouse (TRAC) at Syracuse University, the IRS has completed a mere 36 audits from the over-$10 million set since launching the global high wealth group...".* The Young Turks host Cenk Uygur breaks it down.

Oh, and it has precisely zero dollars in revenue.

By way of belated acknowledgement that the main purpose of NATO’s war in Afghanistan was to build an international, integrated expeditionary military force – there are 50 nations contributing soldiers, equipment, artillery and aircraft for NATO’s International Security Assistance Force – for future wars, Clinton said that the Chicago summit will enhance the allies’ “commitment to joint exercises and training programs that deepen the habits of cooperation we have developed through our work together in Afghanistan.”

 

Ryan Budget Raises Taxes For Poor, Cuts Taxes For Rich

Published on Apr 15, 2012 by

Via Think Progress: "As ThinkProgress has detailed, the House Republican budget, authored by Budget Committee Chairman Paul Ryan (R-WI), pays for massive tax cuts for the wealthiest Americans by cutting spending from programs that primarily benefit lower-income Americans. While giving an average of $187,000 to each millionaire, the budget finds 62 percent of its cuts from programs that benefit the lower- and middle-classes, kicking millions off of food stamps, gutting Pell Grants, and slashing Medicare and Medicaid. As if that weren't enough, according to a report from the Center on Budget and Policy Priorities, the budget also raises taxes for low-income Americans...".

Economy Now Facing the Biggest Bubble Since Housing?

After the housing bubble and the Internet bubble before that, you'd think we'd learn our lesson. But maybe not.

According to Citigroup economist Steven Wieting health care is the next big bubble looming in the distance.

And to make matters all the more worrisome, his analysis suggests it’s like nothing we’ve seen before.

“It’s not a single asset price that’s about to pop (like housing) and it doesn’t have a cyclical component,” he explains during a live interview on Fast Money.

 

Against Technocracy

Today’s European crisis was brought about by widespread popular revolt against the straitjacket of an unrealistic European monetary union. Barroso’s solution is apparently an even tighter straitjacket, and no nonsense about popular elections or national referendums. He wants Europe ruled by Aristotle’s aristocrats, by people like him.

Uranium Double-Standard: The US, Kazakhstan, and Iran

Despite the fact that investigative journalists Seymour Hersh, Gareth Porter and others have meticulously documented the fact that Iran, in fact, poses no nuclear threat at all, the Obama Administration and the U.S. Congress have laid down multiple rounds of harsh sanctions as a means to "deter" Iran from reaching its "nuclear capacity."

While rhetorical attention remains focused on Iran’s "threat", there is an "elephant in the room": Kazakhstan’s booming uranium mining and expanding nuclear industry -- a massive effort involving U.S. multinational corporations and an authoritarian regime increasingly tied to Washington.

Sudan: The Oil Drums of War

The U.S. special envoy for Sudan told reporters in January he was "very concerned" about the situation in Sudan. South Sudan and Sudan split last year under the terms of a comprehensive peace agreement that ended one of the bloodiest conflicts since World War II. The envoy, Princeton Lyman, admitted some of the outstanding issues from the CPA were "set aside" but where now "coming to the surface." This week, with South Sudanese authorities seizing oil territory in Sudan, the situation has now boiled over into war.

White House: Iran nuclear talks ‘positive first step’

The White House hailed the “positive attitude” from Iran and world powers at the negotiating table on Saturday, calling the nuclear talks a “positive first step.”

Deputy National Security Adviser Ben Rhodes reiterated the White House’s call for Tehran to take “concrete steps” to demonstrate that it will not militarize its nuclear program, which the Iranian regime insists serves peaceful, civilian energy purposes.

He made the comments to reporters after Iran and the P5+1 bloc that groups Britain, China, France, Germany, Russia and the United States agreed to more in-depth talks in Baghdad on May 23.

Speaking in Cartagena, on the sidelines of a Summit of the Americas in Colombia, Rhodes welcomed the follow-on meeting as an “additional positive sign.”

Mike Rivero Comment: I have to wonder just precisely what President Obama, and Israeli Prime Minister Netanyahu, are going to demand at this next meeting in late May to throw the mother of all monkey wrenches into the mix and cause the next round of meetings to fail.

This was, apparently, all smoke and mirrors, engineered to appear that the EU and the US were sincerely after a peaceful solution here.

 

Scientists Establish First Working Quantum Network, Quantum Internet On The Way

With amount of components we can cram on a chip slowly reaching its physical limit, quantum has become the next big thing that could revolutionize the computing world. IBM is even on the cusp of building actual quantum computer protoypes. But what good is any of that if we don’t have a quantum Internet? Fortunately, we do. A team of scientists at the Max Planck Institute of Quantum Optics have just established the first working quantum network.

THE LAW THAT NEVER WAS - The 16th Amendment authorizing the income tax failed ratification

On January 10, 2008, the Federal District Court in Chicago issued a permanent injunction against Bill Benson on the grounds that by offering information demonstrating that the 16th Amendment was not legally ratified, he was promoting an abusive tax shelter. The Court then refused to look at the government-certified documentary evidence, deciding instead that the facts necessary to prove his statements true were "irrelevant."
