obama continues elite's agenda of leading US to 'tragedy'

video: econ prof says 'no way forward for US'
obama continues elite's agenda of leading US to 'tragedy'from press tv: The US president is incapable of coping with the changing world, brought along by ignorance of its own internal welfare, a professor of binary economics says, describing the situation as a “tragedy” for Americans. “President Obama's foreign policy is bankrupt and his domestic policy is bankrupt as well," said Rodney Shakespeare, adding, “I regret to say that America has lost its way domestically in exactly the same way as it has lost its way in foreign policy.”

ground zero: look to the sun for the warning

ground zero: look to the sun for the warningfrom clyde lewis: The mixture of religion, politics and science is all in the plan to develop an umbrella of a new religious movement, a universal construct for whatever new plans are lurking in the shadows. Plans that are meant to lead you into making choices you would not normally make. The elite are using eschatology and the threat of final judgment as a weapon to further their control over a world that does not take the time to uncover the conspiracy that hides the keys to occult or hidden knowledge.

davos elite say china the model for new economic world order

davos elite say china the model for new economic world orderfrom afp: Power in the global economy is shifting from the advanced world to Asia as recovery takes hold, Davos analysts said Wednesday, as political and business elites began their annual meeting. “What is really happening is a slowdown of the western world and the growth of the emerging markets. This is a complete shift in the balance of power,” Azim Premji, chairman of Indian software major Wipro, told the opening panel. “In 10 years, the economy of the emerging world will beequal or slightly larger than the US economy,” added the billionaire at the World Economic Forum. China’s highest ranking official at the International Monetary Fund, Zhu Min, said that global recovery was still being driven predominantly by Asian giants India and China.

'terrorist attack' at moscow airport kills 35

'terrorist attack' at moscow airport kills 35from abcnews: An explosion rocked Moscow's busiest airport today in an apparent "terrorist attack", killing 35 and injuring dozens more, according to Russian officials. The blast erupted in the Domodedovo airport at 4:40 p.m. Moscow time. In addition to the 31 dead, another 120 were injured, Evgeny Khorishko of the Russian Embassy in Washington, D.C., told ABC News, citing Russia's Ministry of Health. The attack was carried out by two suicide bombers, witnesses said according to Russia's state news agency RIA. On Twitter, one purported eyewitness, Ilya Likhtenfeld, said the bomb "was not in the luggage," but on a man standing in a crowd near a cafe. Khorishko, said it was "too early to say" who may have been responsible.

ground zero: apocalypse cowfrom clyde lewis: I have been concerned lately that the mainstream media has been abusing the term “conspiracy theory” with regards to what has been happening with the mass deaths of birds and fish. While many people have written off the events of the past weeks and have convinced themselves that what has happened is normal, the death cloud has now moved to animals. It is frustrating to read how the media downplays these events and goes out of their way to belittle and make fun of those who point to glaring prophecy and calls them conspiracy theorists.

hu's on first: west welcomes most favored nation, glimpses future

obama formally welcomes chinese president hu jintao
obama formally welcomes chinese president hu jintaofrom latimes: President Obama welcomed Chinese President Hu Jintao to the White House on Wednesday morning in a formal ceremony marked by the fanfare reserved only for a visiting head of state... The carefully choreographed ceremony began against the backdrop of music by a Navy brass band. In a display of unity, the South Portico of the White House was lined with alternating Chinese and American flags...

With contingents from the U.S. Coast Guard, Air Force, Navy, Marines and Army gathered on the South Lawn, Obama and First Lady Michelle Obama - he wearing a red tie and she wearing red gloves - greeted Hu as his limousine arrived. A 21-gun salute - set off by cannons along Constitution Avenue - was heard as the Chinese national anthem played. Obama and Hu greeted a small crowd of Chinese students and other guests, shaking hands along a rope line before making their remarks.

for hollywood, it was a tough 2010 as spending continued to fall

for hollywood, it was a tough 2010 as spending continued to fallfrom latimes: To paraphrase Apollo 13 astronaut Jack Swigert, "Hollywood, we have a problem." The industry that was supposed to be immune to economic downturns looks like it's going to have some re-entry problems as the economy begins to recover. Broad swaths of the entertainment business declined in 2010. DVD sales were off 13%. Music CD purchases plummeted 19%. Video game sales as well as concert and theater attendance also fell. Even the turnout for America's favorite pastimes — baseball and NASCAR — was down. And swift changes in technology will make it difficult for Hollywood to capture pre-recession levels of revenue. So much for the value of escapism. But perhaps most ominously, last summer the pay-television industry suffered an unprecedented net loss - for the first time - of customers, a yellow warning light that consumers may no longer regard cable TV as a must-have utility on par with electricity and phone service.

contrived treebomber plot to stampede portland into fbi takeover?

contrived treebomber plot to stampede portland into fbi takeover?from kurt nimmo: Residents of Portland, Oregon, recently attended a forum on the question of whether the city should rejoin the FBI’s Joint Terrorism Task Force. The city withdrew its task force membership five years ago after the Justice Department turned down a city request for oversight over the JTTF. The decision followed revelations in 2002 that the FBI and the Portland Police kept thousands of “red squad” style police files on political activists. Since 1981, Oregon law has barred police surveillance of political groups in the absence of criminal activity... We Are Change Portland mentioned the first World Trade Center bombing during the forum with city officials and the FBI.

An op-ed published in The Oregonian last week argues in favor of a resumption of FBI JTTF activities in Portland. The obviously staged Christmas tree terror plot was mentioned: “The averted attack during Portland’s Christmas tree lighting ceremony has touched off a debate about the city’s decision, six years ago, to withdraw from the task force. That withdrawal was, clearly, unwise.” The FBI orchestrated event was cooked up not only as yet another sideshow in the never-ending war against manufactured terror, but also as a stunt to frighten the people of Portland into accepting the presence of the FBI. If the FBI is allowed back into Portland, the city’s residents can expect the agency – acting as America’s political police force – to resume its effort to attack the establishment’s political enemies. The FBI does not exist to combat kidnappers and bank robbers, as advertised. It exists to neutralize and destroy all political opposition, as its former director, J. Edgar Hoover, so famously said when COINTELPRO was rolled out fifty years ago.

mayhem spreads in tunisia as curfew decreed

mayhem spreads in tunisia as curfew decreedfrom nytimes: The government of Tunisia scrambled alternately to appease and to crush growing unrest on Wednesday as a three-week-old wave of violent demonstrations spread for the first time to the capital, where swarms of protesters called for the ouster of the authoritarian president, Zine al-Abidine Ben Ali. The protesters came together after circulating calls to rally over online networks like Facebook and twitter.com. Many were unemployed college graduates, and they angrily demanded more jobs and denounced what they called the self-enrichment of Tunisia’s ruling family. Army units and riot police were deployed around the city around dawn in anticipation, and they quickly dispersed protesters with billy clubs, tear gas, and bullets. By late in the day the government decreed a night-time curfew. And there were reports that some relatives of the president were leaving the country for their own safety.

At one of several demonstrations, witnesses reported that the security forces had shot and killed four protesters. Some said the army had used rooftop snipers to fire on the crowd. Rights groups said they had confirmed more than 30 deaths before the day began, all in skirmishes with police over the last several days. “How can you fire on your own people?” said a 30-year-old business owner taking refuge from police as they broke up a protest near the French Embassy and train station downtown. “If you do that, then there is no return. Now you are a killer.” He declined to provide his name for fear of reprisals.
