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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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".
"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.

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.ben tiens...
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.

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.

Obama claims the U.S. commando raid in which Osama bin Laden was killed was the singularly most important day of his presidency. It was called Operation Neptune%u2019s Spear. %u201CI did choose the risk,%u201D Obama said. %u201CThe reason I was willing to make that decision of sending in our SEALs to try to capture or kill bin Laden rather than to take some other options was ultimately because I had 100 percent faith in the Navy SEALs themselves.%u201D
The people of Iceland forced their corrupt government to resign. A public assembly was created to rewrite the constitution. The banks were nationalized, it was decided not to pay the debt that PRIVATE banks created. All of this in a peaceful way... What would happen if the rest of the world took this as an example?
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.
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.
French comedian Dieudonne M'bala M'bala in Montreal have been canceled after Jewish groups protested his reputation for anti-Semitic statements. M'bala was scheduled to perform at the Corona Theatre starting Monday, but the theater sent out a release Friday saying the shows were canceled "due to contractual conflicts."Dieudonné interdit au Corona. Peut-être que cela va l'aider à identifier de vrais amis à Montréal... Qui apris la relève de Falardeau ?
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 show in the press. 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.
It%u2019s the CIA%u2019s famed MK Ultra mind control drug program all over again, but this time the drug experiments are being conducted on teenage volunteers who are dropped off at the local Occupy protest after being drugged up by the cops.

The march had been successfully split, and the small factions were then being isolated and surrounded. Suddenly, riot police were everywhere, marching up the street like storm troopers, police cars, vans, horses, motorcycles, and trucks were flying by. As one faction of the protest continued down another street, the riot police followed behind, while another massive onslaught of riot police went around to block off the protesters from the other side. When the police first charged, I had lost one of my friends simply by looking away for a moment.
The then prime minister, Menachem Begin, agreed to supply equipment - including gas masks, radar systems and fuel tanks for bombers - to Leopoldo Galtieri, head of the military junta, reportedly because of a long-standing hatred of the UK. Meanwhile, Peruvian president Fernando Belaunde Therry authorised the transport of arms from Israel to Lima and Callao, a major Pacific port, before their transfer to Buenos Aires aboard Aerol?neas Argentinas aircraft.
The actions come as two Palestinian on extended hunger strikes, Bilal Diab and Tha%u2019er Halahleh, enter their 66th day of fast. Held at the Ramle prison medical clinic, today both met with an Israeli judge who refused to release the men from their administrative detention orders, or imprisonment without charge. As their health is now in imminent risk of death, the continuation of their captivity is considered a de facto death sentence.

The Interior Ministry has announced that it will close the borders between Spain and France, due to serious fears of public order and domestic security issues, to coincide with the European Central Bank summit in Barcelona. The move temporarily suspends the Schengen Treaty and temporarily restores border controls to France from midnight on Saturday 28th April until midnight on Friday 4th May.Je n'arrive pas à confirmer cette information sur le web francophone...

La jeune Horia A., elle, était autorisée à s’enregistrer normalement, puis à monter à bord de l’avion. Mais quelques minutes avant le décollage, une hôtesse arrive devant le siège de Horia, et lui demande de venir avec elle. S’étant isolée avec la passagère dans un recoin de l’appareil, l’hôtesse lui pose alors une première question , gênée : « Madame, avez-vous un passeport israélien ? » Horia : « Non » L’hôtesse, dans son talkie-walkie de communication avec sa direction au sol : « Elle a dit non » « Et maintenant, êtes-vous de confession israé.. euh… êtes-vous juive ? »
"Not a single announcement will reach the public without our control. Even now this is already being attained by us inasmuch as all news items are received by a few agencies, in whose offices they are focused from all parts of the world. These agencies will then be already entirely ours and will give publicity only to what we dictate to them." - Protocol 12:4 The Protocols of the Elders of Zion
After images that hold Auschwitz up for derision, we see the shoot of a film centered on an alcoholic and violent character who is disguised as a Nazi officer for a costume party. The Holocaust denier Robert Faurisson appears as himself for a few minutes, the Shoah is personified as a saint.
F rench “comedian” Dieudonne is a well-established provocateur — a Jew-baiter whose most recent show was called “Mahmoud,” after Iran’s Holocaust-denying president. So it shouldn’t come as a surprise that the performer’s next movie is titled “L’Antisémite” (The Anti-Semite), and features dialogue such as, “It’s clear the Jews control everything — the media, finance, politics. We no longer have a choice. We must” — here’s the ostensible punchline — “exterminate them.”
The Iranian Intelligence Ministry announced that they have identified and captured a %u201Cmajor terrorist group%u201D also characterized as %u201Ca large and sophisticated Israeli terror and sabotage network%u201D after months of intelligence gathering. In the recent past there have also been reports of Israeli commandos already operating in Iran, supposedly in an attempt to uncover a smoking gun which would give the West the green light to overtly attack Iran.
Israel has branded German poet Günter Grass "persona non grata", amid calls he be stripped of his Nobel Prize. But did Grass really inflame hatred against the Israeli people, or has he fallen victim to the politicization of taste?
