RANT: With such articulate exponents, it surprises us that the people have yet to rise up against the clear repression by our government. I wish someone would help us overthrow our terrible dictators who suppress student demonstrations as described above and make bloody murder on the rest of the world too! I am afraid our regime is so out of control that we (UK, 51st state of the USA - M.I.C.) should definitely not be allowed to have nukes, forget Iran!
...While we were in Ireland the government decided to transfer 750 million euros of taxpayer funds to unsecured Anglo Irish bondholders. To paraphrase Max Keiser from his first evening at Kilkenomics, "what part of 'unsecured' don't you understand? It means f%^k you!"
The response to this wealth transfer from citizen to private corporation, needless to say, did not go down well with the Irish population. Such wealth transfer is, we all know, happening globally, rapidly and blatantly at the moment. But history demonstrates that this lack of recourse for populations unable to stop the blatant theft and wealth transfer - never ends well. And we see that in the global financial and political systems spiraling out of control. Leaders across Europe are falling. Only to be replaced with another front man for the same frauds. Germany and France are now talking of downsizing the eurozone. Why, however, would Germany want to be in any union with France which will require $416 billion on their exposure to Italy's bad debts? Then there are the bad debts of Greece, Ireland, Spain, Portugal, the US, sitting on the books of Societe Generale, BNP Paribas and other French banks. Teaser:
Mike Adams from NaturalNews.com, reporting for Infowars.com visits the Burzynski research institute and speaks with Dr. Stanislaw Burzynski, founder of the research institute and clinic. Dr. Burzynski talks about how his invention of gene-targeted cancer medications called Antineoplastons has shown much greater success rates for ridding the body of cancer than any conventional method. Dr. Burzynski also explains that while his invention should be applauded by the medical industry as a whole, it actually made him a target of scrutiny and many indictments.
Many modern economists missed the financial crisis and the economic problems we've seen since then, such as the eurozone debt crisis. Why? Well according to economics professor and author of Debunking Economics Steve Keen, they're not really experts on the economy but experts on a model of the economy. The great tragedy according to Keen is that the model is almost completely irrelevant to the system we actually live in. And despite the learnings of the financial crisis, not much has changed. Keen says the problem is Neoclassical economics, which economists are traditionally trained in. As for the solution? Well we may just have to wait for the economists in charge to die off. In the meantime, should people be occupying the economics departments of universities along with Wall Street? Keen says absolutely.

First, British bombs tore it apart. Now, British companies will get paid to put it back together. Libya is open for business, and UK firms are being encouraged to join the gold rush... “We bomb, we destroy, and then we get the contracts to rebuild afterwards,” he told RT. “For us [Britain], it’s always been about those commercial interests ever since BP and Shell went back into Libya after the sanctions were lifted 10 years or so ago. For us, it’s got this commercial edge to the entire thing.” Journalist John Pilger says there was evidence of bartering before NATO even got involved. “The west is establishing another client in Libya. Libya is the source of more oil than any other country in Africa, including Nigeria,” he said. “The National Transition Council told the French that if they sent in their airplanes they would give Total 35 per cent of the oil reserves. There’s so much evidence for what the thing really is.”
Italian Prime Minister Silvio Berlusconi makes final preparations to say “arrivederci,” but even those discontented with his policies appear less than certain that the new captain will manage to steer the Italian mega-yacht to a safe haven. Italy is rushing through painful austerity cuts aimed at averting a worst-case scenario in the EU's third-largest economy. A vote in the Senate is expected on Friday.
Approval by both houses of parliament will finally end the era of Silvio Berlusconi, who has promised to resign as soon as new laws are passed.
But many in Italy doubt the new government will bring relief to the struggling country. Source
