Levin: US preparing for societal collapse by buying up billions of rounds of ammo

“I’m going to tell you what I think is going on,” Levin said. “I don’t think insurrection. Law enforcement and national security agencies — they play out multiple scenarios. They simulate multiple scenarios. I’ll tell you what I think they’re simulating: the collapse of our financial system, the collapse of our society and the potential for widespread violence, looting, killing in the streets, because that’s what happens when an economy collapses.”
“I’m not talking about a recession,” Levin continued.

THIS IS TERROR: Photo of Palestinian children killed by Israeli regime wins World Press Photo award - Kids in the crosshairs

RT: A picture of two Palestinian children killed in an Israeli regime airstrike has won the 2012 World Press Photo award. And as if to further prove the danger to the region's youth, an IDF sniper has posted a photo of a child in his rifle's scope to Instagram.

­A procession of wailing men carrying two Palestinian children to their funeral, captured with the click of a camera, has won the 2012 World Press Photo.
The photo was taken by the Swedish photographer Paul Hansen, working for the Dagens Nyheter newspaper.
Taken in Gaza on November 20, 2012, the photo shows a group of men marching the dead bodies of a brother and sister, wrapped in white cloth, through the city. The piece portrays what became a common scene on the ground during Israel's eight-day military conquest, Operation Pillar of Defense, against Hamas in the Gaza Strip.
One of photojournalism's most prestigious competitions, the World Press Photo awarded work this year in nine categories to 54 photographers of 32 nationalities.
"This prize is the highest honor you can get in the profession," Hansen said, "I'm very happy, but also very sad. The family lost two children and the mother is unconscious in a hospital."

'US Drone War Of Terror: B-52 killing Afghan civlians on daily basis'

A university professor tells Press TV that the US occupying forces attempt to manipulate any kind of information or reports of Afghanistan war casualties. Civilian casualties have long been a source of friction between the Afghan government and US-led foreign forces and have dramatically increased anti-US sentiments in Afghanistan. The United States and its allies invaded Afghanistan in their 2001 war of terror under the pretext of combating terrorism. The war removed the Taliban from power and as a result insecurity continues to be high across the country.

Press TV has conducted an interview with Professor Shah Mahmoud Hanifi

Copyright fascists own our thoughts, now the medical fascists want to own our genes

Some scientists argue they have been stymied in researching new medicines and treatments because they may come up against demands for royalties or letters demanding they stop using patented inventions.
Myriad Genetics Inc., owner of patents for genes linked to cancer risks, won an Australian court ruling allowing it to patent isolated DNA, a first in the country, with the U.S. Supreme Court set to hear a similar case.
Federal Court Justice John Nicholas today in Sydney dismissed a 2010 lawsuit aimed at stopping Myriad and Genetic Technologies Ltd. from patenting a gene mutation associated with an increased risk of breast and ovarian cancers.
The issue has divided the global medical community with groups including the Association for Molecular Pathology and the American College of Medical Genetics arguing that Myriad is attempting to get legal ownership of parts of the human body. The conflict returns to the U.S. Supreme Court this year after the U.S. Court of Appeals for the Federal Circuit twice ruled that genes can be patented. The U.S. high court agreed on Nov. 30 to hear the Association for Molecular Pathology’s appeal.
Rebecca Gilsenan, a lawyer at Melbourne-based Maurice Blackburn, the firm representing the opponents, said after the Australian decision that they will have to review the 41-page judgment before determining whether to appeal.
“We’re really interested in the U.S. Supreme Court hearing,” Gilsenan said. “We’ll be watching it very closely.”

Greenspan: Ignore The Economy, "Only The Stock Market Matters"

Tyler Durden's picture Starting at around 1:50, Greenspan states the odds of sequester occurring are very high - in fact, the playdough-faced ex-Chair-head notes, "I find it very difficult to find a scenario in which [the sequester] doesn't happen" But when asked how this will affect the economy, Awkward Alan is unusually clearly spoken - "the issue is how does it affect the stock market."
While not so many of our leaders have taken the path to direct truthiness, Greenspan somewhat shocks a Botox'd and babbling Bartiromo when he admits "the stock market is the key player in the game of economic growth."
Bartiromo shifts uncomfortably in her seat, strokes her imaginary beard and stares blankly as Greenspan explains that while the sequester will have a real effect on the real economy, "if the stock market can hold up through this, then the effect will be rather minor."
He ends with a couple of wonderful truthisms - data shows that not only are stock markets a leading indicator of economic activity, they are a major cause of it - 6% of the change in the growth in GDP results from changes in the value of stocks and homes. So there it is - if we didn't already know, straight from an old horse's mouth - it's all about stocks!
Fiscal problems? "The problem is so severe at this stage that unless we come to terms with it in a large way, we are running into very serious trouble," but Dr. Greenspan, if stocks stay up, it's all good right? Greenspan's wealth effect meme is all there is...
