Professor Laurence Kotlikoff tells us that if we use Generally Accepted Accounting Principles (GAAP) which requires corporations to acknowledge debts as they accrue that America's debt is 211 trillion dollars and not the more than 16 trillion in outstanding Treasury bonds. The real shocker is that our debt grew by 11 trillion dollars in 2011. That is $916,666,666,667 a month. There are 31,536,000 seconds in an ordinary year (60x60x24x365). This works out to $347,705 a second. Try to get the people you talk to to wrap their minds around these numbers because we have to start a national dialogue.

The picture from space that shows how one U.S. oil field is burning off enough gas to power Chicago AND Washington because it's cheaper than selling it | Mail Online
This incredible picture from space shows how the U.S. oil industry has boomed to such an extent that a gas field now burns as brightly as a major city.
The rapid increase in shale oil production means it is now often more economical to 'flare off' unwanted gas than to sell it.
As a result, one field in North Dakota, the state leading the energy revolution, is now burning off enough gas to power all the homes in Chicago and Washington D.C. combined.
Two months ago, President Francois Hollande declared France would not again intervene in Africa. Since granting nominal independence in 1960 to the states that comprised former French West Africa, France has intervened militarily 50 times. French technicians, bankers and intelligence agents run most of West Africa from behind the scenes. There are 60,000 French in Algeria and west Africa, seen by Paris as its sphere of influence.

France sends troops to secure Niger uranium mines :: www.uruknet.info :: informazione dal medio oriente :: information from middle east :: [gd]
In reality, the dispatch of French commandos to the uranium mines in Niger only underscores the overriding economic and geo-strategic motives behind the French military intervention in Mali. Under the cover of a supposed war against Islamist "terrorists" and a defense of the central government in Mali, French imperialism is using its military might to tighten its grip on its resource-rich former African colonies.
Mordechai Vanunu brought his camera to work in late 1985, shortly before leaving his eight-year stint as a technician at Israel's nuclear weapons factory at Dimona.
Acting on his conscience, he carefully took about 60 photos of the top-secret labs and unique production processes involved. When some of these photos were originally published in the London Sunday Times' exposé, they confirmed his eyewitness testimony about the extent of Israel's nuclear weapons program and revealed Israel to be one of the world's top nuclear powers. To this day, the Israeli government refuses international inspection of Dimona and continues to deny the existence of its nuclear arsenal.

The US administration is now facing a crisis in Libya. Sensitive documents have gone missing from the consulate in Benghazi and the supposedly secret location of the "safe house" in the city, where the staff had retreated, came under sustained mortar attack. Other such refuges across the country are no longer deemed "safe".
Some of the missing papers from the consulate are said to list names of Libyans who are working with Americans, putting them potentially at risk from extremist groups, while some of the other documents are said to relate to oil contracts.
According to senior diplomatic sources, the US State Department had credible information 48 hours before mobs charged the consulate in Benghazi, and the embassy in Cairo, that American missions may be...
He was an expert on electronic eavesdropping and had top secret security clearance. He was also a decorated United States Air Force and United States Navy veteran, computer software expert, linguist, management and leadership specialist.
Newly released documents say Defence Minister Peter MacKay told Israel's top military commander, Maj.-Gen. Gabi Ashkenazi, during a 2011 visit to the Middle East, that "a threat to Israel is a threat to Canada."
The statement came a year after cabinet colleague Peter Kent was upbraided as junior foreign affairs minister for telling a Toronto-based publication that "an attack on Israel would be considered an attack on Canada."
This infographic created by Jason at Frugal Dad shows that almost all media comes from the same six sources.
That's consolidated from 50 companies back in 1983.
NOTE: This infographic is from last year and is missing some key transactions. GE does not own NBC (or Comcast or any media) anymore. So that 6th company is now Comcast. And Time Warner doesn't own AOL, so Huffington Post isn't affiliated with them.
But the fact that a few companies own everything demonstrates "the illusion of choice," Frugal Dad says. While some big sites, like Digg and Reddit aren't owned by any of the corporations, Time Warner owns news sites read by millions of Americans every year.
Obama décore Shimon Perez de la plus haute distinction américaine...
US President Barack Obama has awarded the Presidential Medal of Freedom to Israeli President Shimon Peres, the man who has overseen the killing of Palestinian women and children by Israeli forces in the occupied territories for decades. Obama awarded the 88-year-old Israeli president the highest civilian honor in the United States during a dinner ceremony in the White House on Wednesday. He called Peres "the essence of Israel and the symbol of a decades-long alliance between Tel Aviv and Washington".
In an interview with Press TV, Kamel Wazni, a Beirut-based political analyst, shares his
thoughts regarding the issue.
"Dear, it would seem that the Department of Homeland Security (DHS) is being idiotic again. The Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA) had gotten a call from the Coast Guard (USGG) that a large wave is heading here and the entire state is to be evacuated, but I also just read that the Customs and Border Protection asked the border patrol to stop anyone who wishes to leave by request of the Secret Service! Apparently this takes the Secure Border Initiative (SBI) and makes it apply to state borders now"
Une dernière question : Manuel Valls est aussi signataire d’un appel indigne appelant à poursuivre les militants qui prônent le boycott des produits israéliens. Parmi eux, Stéphane Hessel ou Alima Boumediene. Que fera le ministre de l’intérieur, alors que plusieurs de ces militants ont été relaxés par la justice, mais que certains restent poursuivis ?

This, of course, is virtually impossible as the readings were confirmed by two entirely different locations. BlackCat and the Radiation Network both recorded the levels, meaning that the likelihood both of their systems failed at the exact same time and produced the exact same result would be dismal.
As the story develops, more information will undoubtedly come out on the subject. It appears that the EPA%u2019s incognito takedown of the measurement results indicates that the agency, perhaps along with other government organizations, will vehemently deny that there was any real spike in radiation levels. The %u2018failure%u2019 message issued by the Radiation Network also shows that it is very possible that an organized level of non-disclosure may ultimately be the...

What makes this Casseroles Night any different? It will be bigger, louder, and rowdier. We will take more streets, we will back down in less confrontations, and we will produce the needed momentum for an American fight over student debt in the Fall.
One would expect allegedly "outspoken" critics of the US and Israel to represent the antithesis of any joint US-Israeli foreign policy, especially when it involves mass-murdering large numbers of fellow Arabs to expand Western hegemony across the Middle East. Yet the Egyptian Muslim Brotherhood has done the exact opposite, after a long campaign of feigned anti-American, anti-Israel propaganda during the Egyptian presidential run-up, the Muslim Brotherhood has joined US, European, and Israeli calls for an "international" intervention in Syria.
IF THIS DOES NOT TRIGGER A REVOLUTION, THEN YOU ARE ALL PUSSIES! As An Encore to Bailing Out the Big Banks, Government to Backstop Derivativees Clearinghouses %u2026 In the U.S. and Abroad | WHAT REALLY HAPPENED
Now, consider that since 2008 the American people have told the US Government not to use taxpayer money to backstop Wall Street's recklessness. Had DC allowed Wall Street to take their lumps from the mortgage-backed securities fraud and fail, to be replaced by more responsible financial leaders, we would already be headed out of this mess the way Iceland is. But the US Government ignored the will of the people, went ahead with TARP and an endless stream of additional bailouts, Wall Street got greedier and now Europe hovers over the edge of a precipice, firmly tied to the Wall Street banks by derivatives, and now Washington DC wants to move those chains from their good buddies the bankers onto your ankles, and wave good bye as you sink our of sight into the abyss.

Three years ago, the International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA)’s research mission visited the contaminated areas. Dr. Shigematsu [Japanese], chairman of the mission, announced “there are no health damages among the residents.” [...]
Mr. Hirokawa, after looking at your video, I wonder what it was that IAEA announced there were no health damages among the residents. [...]
The local people believed a fair research would be done, because IAEA is an agency of the United Nations and a medical scientist from Hiroshima would lead the research. So, they were astounded that the mission had announced the areas were safe.
But, didn’t the mission actually see the situation there?
Well, according to the local doctors, the mission members didn’t enter the...

Attorney Of US Soldier Accused Of Mass Murder In Afghanistan Say He's Seen Zero Evidence Of Massacre - YouTube
Le massacre du "loup solitaire" dans un village afghan est supposément horrible, mais il n'y a plus de village et les témoins sont introuvables... Il n'y a plus aucune preuve de ce massacre et les militaires ne dévoilent rien des "preuves" irréfutables qui sont en leur supposée possession.
On Wednesday, activists and journalists across America rejoiced in a federal judge's ruling that the National Defense Authorization Act is unconstitutional. The judge sided with the plaintiffs when it came to section 1021 of the act, which allows for the military to indefinitely detain Americans at home and abroad without due process. But now Congress is seeking to create a new NDAA. On Friday, the US House of Representatives approved the 2013 NDAA and even shot down an amendment that would cancel the indefinite detention provisions. Carl Mayer, attorney for The Mayer Law Group representing the plaintiffs, joins us for more on the NDAA.
Unfortunately, Americans have some of the worst diets in the world, and everyone else knows it. With the average American consuming 24 lbs of artificial sweeteners, 29 lbs of french fries, and over 600 lbs of dairy per year, the average American is in a state of crisis. The average American diet is heavily responsible for the escalating obesity rates and is ultimately contributing to the development of illness and diseases.

More controversy this week surrounding the practice of fracking. The US Department of Agriculturehas dropped the plan to require an extensive environmental review before handing mortages to people that plan to use the land for oil and gas drilling. This has outraged opponents of hydraulic fracturing, who say it eases up rules on the drilling method. To talk more about this Greg Palast, an author and investigative journalist, joins RT's Liz Wahl.
Over and over again, the F.B.I. writes the script, they cast idiots
to play the parts, and then bust their own terror plot with a big

Even the New York Times can't remember any recent terror plot
'busts' that DIDN'T involve the F.B.I. actually having to provide
the entire scenario, including the fake bombs.
