Another H.M.S Titanic Passenger Jumps Ship!

FRAN TOWNSEND RESIGNS!

At first it’s kind of fun working for the Global Syndicate where there’s a feeling of thrill and mystique as well as filled with exciting danger and fringe benefits…

But then as the law starts catching up and the money starts to run out then the people working under you start to get scared and tired of having to lie to keep the syndicate going strong. Especially true when subpoenas start to fly and you see those around you being picked off one by one!

So with that sentiment we add yet another casualty to that cut and run list as Reich Homeland Security adviser Fran Townsend heads for the Canadian or Dubai border…. Uh.. well we don’t really know if she’s leaving the country but it would be a good idea to avoid being hauled in to court for the next 2 years.

Say hello to Porkrind for me will ya Fran ? Oh and Osama said to tell Bush that he just got his Christmas gift from last year and it was a nice bonus!!

Money, Banking, and the Federal Reserve [sic]

anthony @ 16:50 GMT

Thomas Jefferson and Andrew Jackson understood “The Monster”. But to most Americans today, Federal Reserve is just a name on the dollar bill. They have no idea of what the central bank does to the economy, or to their own economic lives; of how and why it was founded and operates; or of the sound money and banking that could end the statism, inflation, and business cycles that the Fed generates.

Dedicated to Murray N. Rothbard, steeped in American history and Austrian economics, and featuring Ron Paul, Joseph Salerno, Hans Hoppe, and Lew Rockwell, this extraordinary new film is the clearest, most compelling explanation ever offered of the Fed, and why curbing it must be our first priority.

Alan Greenspan is not, we’re told, happy about this 42-minute blockbuster. Watch it, and you’ll understand why. This is economics and history as they are meant to be: fascinating, informative, and motivating. This movie could change America.

Gas Prices Reach All time High!

by GEF @ 7:38 AM MST

Gas prices near all-time high

The average price of gasoline is just nine cents below the inflation-adjusted peak set in 1981; new record likely in coming weeks.

(CNN) — The price of gasoline has jumped another 13 cents in the last two weeks, close to the all-time high set earlier this year, according to a survey published Sunday.

The average price of a gallon of self-serve regular is $3.09, the Lundberg Survey found. That’s just 9 cents below the record set in May.

The latest price is also 9 cents below the inflation-adjusted all-time high, said survey publisher Trilby Lundberg. In 1981, the price peaked at $1.35 — which, in today’s dollars, comes out to $3.10 using the latest Consumer Price Index data, she said.

Don’t be surprised if the records are shattered in the coming weeks, Lundberg said. Even if crude oil doesn’t climb further, “we can easily see another dime at the pump,” she said, “because refiners are severely squeezed between their oil buying price and their gasoline selling price.”
The survey looked at thousands of gas stations nationwide on Friday, two weeks after the previous survey. The lowest average price for a gallon of self-serve regular was in Tucson, Ariz., at $2.91; the highest was in San Francisco, at $3.48.

Here are prices in some other cities:

Des Moines, Iowa – $3.02

Manchester, N.H. – $2.97

Houston – $2.90

St. Louis – 2.96

Salt Lake City – $2.97

Atlanta – $3.03

Washington – $3.08

Portland, Ore. – $3.10

Miami – $3.17

Hartford, Conn. – $3.20

Pentagon Cover Up: 15,000 or More US Deaths in Iraq War?

Uruknet – 2007-11-17

The Pentagon has been concealing the true number of American casualties in the Iraq War. The real number exceeds 15,000 and CBS News can prove it.

CBS’s Investigative Unit wanted to do a report on the number of suicides in the military and “submitted a Freedom of Information Act request to the Department of Defense”. After 4 months they received a document which showed–that between 1995 and 2007– there were 2,200 suicides among “active duty” soldiers.

Lest We Forget

11/15/07 “ICH” — — On Remembrance Day 2007 – Veterans Day in America – the great and the good bowed their heads at the Cenotaph. Generals, politicians, newsreaders, football managers and stock-market traders wore their poppies. Hypocrisy was a presence. No one mentioned Iraq. No one uttered the slightest remorse for the fallen of that country. No one read the forbidden list.

The forbidden list documents, without favor, the part the British state and its court have played in the destruction of Iraq. Here it is:
