In The News: Pass the globalized word... It's the banks. The Europeans are getting bank regulation measures underway along with the British, and in Venezuela, Hugo Chavez has seized 27 banks and jailed some 250 bankers. Today, president Obama going to meet with the major bank executives. He is about to stop the 'nice guy' act and tell the them to get the money onto the streets in the form of commercial loans. Will he be able to strong arm them, in the Chicago style?

Also The Democrats are saying they will place limits on the banking reform bill and congress has also passed the $1.1 TRILLION dollar Omnibus spending bill... $650 billion is unavoidable mandatory spending, but there IS $8 billion dollars in discretionary spending... 'earmarks', aka "pork".

How would Americans feel if the Chinese were doing this for the Indians? Last week Cuba arrested a US contractor working for A.I.D. (Agency for International Development) handing out communications gear, Cell phones, and laptops to Cuban dissidents.

Speaking of Native Americans... $1.6 billion will be paid to US NAtives for a 1996 suit due to the Interior ripping off their royalties for extractive resources. This lawsuit came about due to the occupation of the Interior department by Native activist, who then had access to the files in question and made copies, took photos. The question remains... Which earth raping companies got the resources and the profits? More at Jurist Paper Chase, where their total for the settlement is higher, but still, not even remotely enough.

Still more from Indian Country Today, where the difference is duly noted and explained:

Quaker Indian Committee disavows Doctrine of Discovery, affirms United Nations Declaration on the Rights of Indigenous People
By Gale Courey Toensing
Dec 14, 2009

PHILADELPHIA – Inspired by the actions of the Episcopal Church, a Quaker group has disavowed the Christian Doctrine of Discovery and voiced its support for the United Nations Declaration on the Rights of Indigenous Peoples.

The Indian Committee of Philadelphia Yearly Meeting of the Religious Society of Friends issued a Minute – analogous to a resolution – at its September meeting.

The committee “renounces the Doctrine of Discovery, the doctrine at the foundation of the colonization of Indigenous lands, including the lands of Pennsylvania. We find this doctrine to be fundamentally inconsistent with the teaching of Jesus, with our understanding of the inherent rights that individuals and peoples have received from God, and inconsistent with Quaker testimonies of Peace, Equality, and Integrity,” the Minute reads.

The Doctrine of Discovery was a principle of international law developed in a series of 15th century papal bulls and 16th century charters by European monarchs. It was a racist philosophy that gave white Christian Europeans the green light to go forth and claim the lands and resources of non-Christian peoples and kill or enslave them – if other Christian Europeans had not already done so.

The doctrine institutionalized the competition between European countries in their ever-expanding quest for colonies, resources and markets, and sanctioned the genocide of indigenous people in the “New World” and elsewhere.

As a spiritual corollary of the renunciation, the Indian Committee also expressed its support for the U.N. Declaration on the Rights of Indigenous Peoples, which was adopted by the General Assembly Sept. 13, 2007. The Declaration presents indigenous rights within a framework of human rights.

Only the U.S., Canada, New Zealand and Australia – countries with large populations of indigenous peoples with huge aboriginal land claims – voted against the Declaration’s adoption. Australia has since adopted it. [In Full]
