The First Shots of the Trade War
With the G-20 summit approaching, cheerful talk of "international cooperation" fills the White House press-room. These comments carry with them the implication that "free trade" is integral to "cooperation," a fact made explicit in the last meeting of the G-20. There, in the name of "united action," world leaders agreed not to install any new protectionist measures. Since then, protectionist measures have flourished. Instead of global cooperation we have its opposite: international tensions are on the rise as trade disputes sharpen.

Hatemongering in America—the Post-Carter Dilemma Versus Conservative Opposition
The venom and vile the spews forth from America's body politic is endemic of a people infected with fear and prejudice; but this learned hatred of a democratic agenda is not one based primarily on racism—yet hostility and resentment is very much its spirit. Rather this anima of animosity is one that seeks scapegoats for any instability felt or imagined of America's middle and lower class realities, and all presumptions of a relatively naïve and misinformed society.

A three-month old baby in Louisiana died in her home from blood loss due to rat bites. There were holes in the walls and holes in the floor.

David Corn has long been known to have other agendas in his writings for The Nation, Mother Jones and other 'leftist' publications.

In a September 7 piece for Mother Jones though, he specifically blames the recent canning of Van Jones - candidate for Obama's 'green jobs' advisor position - by right wing echo chamber media shills as SOLELY the responsibility of the 9/11 Truth movement (due to Van Jones' having signed a single 9/11 petition years ago).

Is the U.S. Preparing for War agaisnt Venezuela?
The U.S. State Department has just wrapped up a deal with Colombia's President Uribe that will lead to a massive buildup of U.S. military personnel across seven bases in Colombia. Currently, there are a reported 250 U.S. military operatives in this nation. With the new agreement, this number will jump up to 800 American troops and 600 civilian military contractors. This is the maximum number allowed under previous agreements. Even with this limit, however, many expect the U.S. military buildup to exceed these numbers.

U.S. Secretary of State Hillary Clinton said of the agreement, "This is about bilateral cooperation between the U.S. and Colombia." She included references to "drug traffickers, terrorists, and other illegal armed groups."

The President of Colombia's neighbor, Venezuela's Hugo Chavez, had a very different interpretation of the agreement. He characterized it has a "threat to Venezuela that could generate a war in South America."

Wall Street Under Obama: Bigger and Riskier
After the financial levees broke and the crumbling banks ushered in the economic crisis, angry people clamored for drastic change in the financial system. Obama reflected these feelings well, at times using radical rhetoric to denounce the banking titans. What he promised was deep regulatory change so that such a crisis "would never happen again."

Like every other promise of substance, Obama's pledge to "rein in" the banks has fallen by the wayside; the well-timed rhetoric smoothed over public tensions and now business is back to usual. The New York Times remarks:

One of the things to be grateful for 8 years after 9/11
(I'm posting this even though I see that the newswire is completely blank this morning...)
I'm putting this out there as a topic for conversation. It wasn't inspired by anything in particular I saw or heard on the anniversary of 9/11, or over the weekend. I didn't actually see much, in regard to the 9/11 anniversary. Today I was channel surfing, and on C-Span I saw a little bit of a 9/11 remembrance at the Pentagon, with Obama in attendance. (and Gates next to him). A brass band played a subdued yet almost jazzy version of America the Beautiful which I thought was really good. It didn't have the patriotic snap and stiffness that such songs are usually required to have.

The warranty of habitability, the landlord's guarantee that he will provide you a unit with more amenities than a cave or a cardboard box, is implied in every lease, written or verbal. Unfortunately, many landlords think their properties should perform like an annuity?that the rent should just roll in, like interest, while the landlord does nothing to maintain them.

Obama's Empty Laor Day Speech
President Obama is a friend of the working people... one day a year. The rest of the year he is rewarding banks with bailouts and war contractors with more war. On Labor Day, workers were offered nothing of substance, just kind words.

Obama began his speech by spending an excessive amount of time exaggerating the leadership abilities of both AFL-CIO officials and Ohio's Democratic representatives. The motive was simple: the "partnership" between organized labor and the Democratic Party is central to the languishing existence of the two-party system, while helping to keep the labor movement in an equal state of decline and decay.

In some cases, this has resulted in shared security goals and closer military cooperation which has led to U.S. involvement in the region.

Private Health Care Lobby Dictates Terms in Health Care Reform
Considering the number of resources mobilized by the private health insurance lobby, there can be little surprise that HR 3200 is a 1,000-page legislative mess. The pressure of the lobby ensured that any reform is framed as part of new "health insurance exchanges." This idea was concocted by the conservative Heritage Foundation, transmitted by the health care industry lobby, and is now being mouthed by an assortment of politicians as a trailblazing virtue -- note Obama's "choice and competition" slogan.

Obama to Cindy Sheehan: Get Lost
With Cindy in Martha's Vineyard

I spent but a short time with Cindy Sheehan as she carried her antiwar protest from an earlier time at Crawford, TX, to Martha's Vineyard, vacation spot for Obama and many other Democrat Party elite. As Cindy remarked, the real story was not that she was protesting Obama's wars but that the "leadership" of the peace movement did not support her protest. When the target was Bush in Crawford, she was all the rage with antiwar celebrities, but not so now that the target is Barack Obama. While there is considerable enthusiasm for her anti-Obama protest on the part of the rank and file in the anti-war movement, a refusal of its "leaders" to notify their members far and wide, high and low, crippled the action.

In meticulous detail, Hristov shows how the super-rich benefit from state repression and how the violators of human rights have essentially become immune from any consequences for their actions. If death squads are truly to be abolished in Colombia, we must look honestly at how and why they exist today.
