In The News:
Remember... The State Of The Union speech is a request by the president to congress to do something about the issues discussed. If the coming year is like the last, don't expect much. Sitrep.

However, Nancy Pelosi DID say if they're going to freeze discretionary domestic spending, how about freezing the funds for our wars. Expect no congressional action there either.

Will Federal Reserve chief Benjamin Bernanke keep his post? He has essentially claimed that, during the financial institution economic meltdown, he basically stood back and let the institutions themselves figure out how to staunch the economic flow of green blood from America's financial veins that they themselves suck on for their very sustenance.

There ARE other, highly qualified people (Cenk Uygur @ FiredogLake):
But there is one name that still stands above the rest as clearly the best candidate for the Fed opening – Joseph Stiglitz. Nobel prize winner, former Chief Economist for the World Bank, former Chair of the Council of Economic Advisors and perhaps the most respected economist in the world.

The right takes over - President Zelaya of Honduras has gone into exile in the Dominican Republic and the officers who staged the coup have been absolved by the Honduran supreme court.

A convoy of trucks carrying supplies for NATO has been attacked on the outskirts of Karachi Pakistan. Most of Pakistan's trade, and 75% of OUR equipment moves through the Karachi seaport..

But there IS another way to move our military supplies. A deal has been signed to complete the last piece of road through Kazakhstan to the Afghanistan border. More in the commentary.

Is the cost of your breakfast cereal going up?

Here's one reason why.

U.S. Feeds One Quarter of its Grain to Cars (While Hunger is on the Rise)

(An approximately 6-fold rise in the last 10 years.)

Grain Vs Fuel Vs HungerEarth Policy Institute
JANUARY 21, 2010

"The 107 million tons of grain that went to U.S. ethanol distilleries in 2009 was enough to feed 330 million people for one year at average world consumption levels. More than a quarter of the total U.S. grain crop was turned into ethanol to fuel cars last year. With 200 ethanol distilleries in the country set up to transform food into fuel, the amount of grain processed has tripled since 2004.
When the growing demand for corn for ethanol helped to push world grain prices to record highs between late 2006 and 2008, people in low-income grain-importing countries were hit the hardest. The unprecedented spike in food prices drove up the number of hungry people in the world to over 1 billion for the first time in 2009.

Also See: You Are Being Lied To, Part 2: US Department of Agriculture Edition, about how the USDA is gerrymandering maps and statistics about grain crops and production in the US.

Dana Priest at the Washington Post implies the U.S. is targeting American citizens for killing or capture.
(Read the last paragraph carefully)
"as part of the operations, Obama approved a Dec. 24 strike against a compound where a U.S. citizen, Anwar al-Aulaqi, was thought to be meeting with other regional al-Qaeda leaders.

Although he was not the focus of the strike and was not killed, he has since been added to a shortlist of U.S. citizens specifically targeted for killing or capture by the JSOC, military officials said. "

The Pharmaceutical-Medical-Industrial Complex plays with your fear of 'illness'

"On Tuesday, the Council of Europe launched an investigation into whether the World Health Organization (WHO) "faked" the swine flu pandemic to boost profits for vaccine manufacturers" [In Full]

Finally, on a sad note... Historian Howard Zinn passes at 87.
"I wanted more than ‘objectivity’; I wanted students to leave my classes not just better informed, but more prepared to relinquish the safety of silence, more prepared to speak up, to act against injustice wherever they saw it."
A People's History Of The United States should be required reading in every American high school classroom. His site
