California To Run Out Of Cash In One Month, Controller Warns

Tyler Durden's picture
If anyone is tired of the daily European soap opera with surrealistic tragicomic overtones, they can simply shift their gaze to the 8th largest economy in the world: the insolvent state of California, whose controller just told legislators has just over a month worth of cash left. 
From the Sacramento Bee: "California will run out of cash by early March if the state does not take swift action to find $3.3 billion through payment delays and borrowing, according to a letter state Controller John Chiang sent to state lawmakers today. The announcement is surprising since lawmakers previously believed the state had enough cash to last through the fiscal year that ends in June." ....uh, oops?

'CIA & Mossad penetrated Iran via UN nuclear mission'

U.S. Senate lawmakers have released a plan for a new round of sanctions targeting Iran's energy sector. The bill aimed at choking funds, used by Tehran to allegedly develop nuclear weapons, will be mulled over on Thursday. But while Washington shows no sign of easing up on Tehran, Iran's Foreign Minister has welcomed the extension of the IAEA mission in the country. A team of UN nuclear inspectors may now prolong their stay in Iran beyond the initially planned three days. The minister was optimistic about the possible renewal of nuclear negotiations saying the IAEA visit is a step towards easing the tensions. However, American Radio host, Ralph Schoenman is skeptical about the talks as he thinks the UN body is under too much western influence. Source

Indefinite detention and torture: US already enforcing NDAA

Not even a month after President Barack Obama signed his name to the National Defense Authorization Act for Fiscal Year 2012, the US government is already using the legislation to justify its ongoing detainment of a prisoner at Guantanamo Bay.
Musa'ab al-Madhwani had barely entered adulthood when he first arrived at the military prison at Guantanamo Bay, Cuba in 2002. But in the months between his capture in Pakistan and transfer to Gitmo, the Yemeni national experienced more than most would see in a lifetime. Before he turned 23, he says he was beaten and kicked, threatened with death and suspended by his hands in an underground torture chamber.
Now for the prisoner, about to celebrate the 10-year-anniversary of his arrival at Gimo, the rest of that lifetime looks to be spent behind bars thanks to the NDAA.

Michael Hudson, "In America and Europe, Crime has been Decriminalized"

Eurozone leaders are meeting, again...After talking about the eurozone crisis in Davos, they've moved to Brussels for an EU summit to...talk about it some more...blah blah blah. A lot of talk. When are we going to get something legitimate? Meanwhile, governments and banks are still in bed together - tangled up in their illicit love affair three years after the financial crisis began. We know the drill and we're sick of it. We are sick of socializing losses.

In Landmark Case, Greek Court Writes Off Employed Bank Customer's Debt

Tyler Durden's picture
Think filing for bankruptcy is the only way to get debt discharge? Think again, at least in Greece. While previously we have reported that Greek courts had written off "untenable" debts of unemployed Greeks owed to local banks, Kathimerini describes a landmark case which may have profound implications for the indebted country, in which a fully employed woman has had the bulk of her debt written off. From Kathimerini: "In what could turn out to be a significant ruling for Greeks suffering from the economic crisis, a court in Hania, Crete, has become the first in the country to order that the majority of the debt owed to banks by someone still in full employment be wiped out.
