Oh My Gun! - No money? – Out of ‘great’ society! - "Debt Layer Cake" - David Graeber with Max Keiser

How shouting 'fire!' in a crowded economy may be the only thing left to save us from our unpayable debts and, failing that, Barack Obama's 'revolving door' could be another GDP booster. In the second half of the show Max talks to David Graeber, author of Debt: The First 5000 Years, about weaponized debt and the origins of May Day.

Vincent Browne at his best. "Why did our government pay a 1.5 BILLION UNSECURED debt to Bond Holders for one of our Banks (AIB)?"

Vincent asks Labour minister Dominic Hannigan the same question 10 times but still gets no coherent answer which is typical from our incompetent Irish government.

So much for security: airport employees allowed to work without TSA background checks

If the continued Transportation Security Administration (TSA) abuses, which just seem to get worse as time goes by; the ludicrously costly, potentially dangerous and ineffective “naked body scanners;” and the completely bloated Department of Homeland Security (DHS) were not enough reason to be infuriated by the ever-expanding agency which looks ever more like Hitler’s SA, here is yet another one to add to that list.
Recently the TSA confirmed that they have been allowing new employees to be hired without completed background checks.

Things got heated during a Democratic primary debate for the U.S. Senate in Connecticut on Thursday when one candidate told another that he was a “whore” over his support of a pro-Israel lobbying group.

I’m appalled that when I talk about the neoconservatives somehow it’s twisted to be some sort of a racist comment,” long-shot candidate Lee Whitnum (top photo) [1] said in response to U.S. Rep. Chris Murphy. “This is documented fact. The neoconservative role in the taking down of Iraq [with an] unnecessary war is fact. It’s not opinion.”
I’m dealing with a whore here who sells his soul to AIPAC [American Israel Public Affairs Committee], who will say anything for the job,”

A Lightning War for Liberty - Michael Krieger - The Rebirth Of Barter

Justice in the hands of the powerful is merely a governing system like any other. Why call it justice? Let us rather call it injustice, but of a sly effective order, based entirely on cruel knowledge of the resistance of the weak, their capacity for pain, humiliation and misery.- Georges Bernanos
Outwardly we have a Constitutional government. We have operating within our government and political system, another body representing another form of government, a bureaucratic elite which believes our Constitution is outmoded.

The Plates of Power are Shifting
What an amazing time to be alive.  Whereas in prior decades plans for global dominance by TPTB via a global fiat currency and supranational organizations set up under the guise of “the general welfare” were largely kept hidden from the public,
there was always going to be a coming out party where these control-freaks needed to “sell” global bondage to the 99.9%

As the Mutiny Spreads, It’s Clear: Europeans Have Had Enough!

Watch Europe tip left and right as voters rise in fury against the austerity menu that’s been bringing them to utter ruin. In Holland, the right-wing Freedom Party leader Geert Wilders brought down the governing coalition on Monday bellowing his defiance for the  “Diktats from Brussels”, and asserting that “We must be master of our own house.” Labour and Christian Democrats, Holland’s major parties, are crumbling.
