H/t to ChrisM my MP3Angel for supplying the audio files.
Before the commentary... A Public Service Announcement.
«o» Congress is showing us how truly representative of American culture they are in the wake of the collapse of the Super-Failed "Super-Committee". EVERYONE in Washington is looking for someone to scapegoat or blame. Truth be told it's mostly Republicans doing the complaining because it seems that due to the Republican's own demands when congress itself set up the potential 'sequestration' of federal funding ie. MASSIVE AND AUTOMATIC budget cuts, the the failure of the committee achieved a couple of things for the Obama administration the Republicans had otherwise blocked... and it will stay that way until after the presidential elections and into 2013. More.
«o» Turkeys before "Turkey day" anyone? The eight candidates for the Republican presidential election nomination will debate from Washington DC on CNN tonight.
«o» Cairo is coming apart. The cabinet that's currently pretending to run the country...
I'll let Foreign Policy Magazine Morning Brief explain:
Egypt's cabinet offers resignation as protests continue«o» #OccupySanFrancisco may get run out of their lower Market Street location today with all police officer leave for the day cancelled. There will also be another attempt to move the UC Davis protesters and a major rally is planned to prevent that.
Top story: The Egyptian cabinet offered its resignation to the country's military rulers on Monday in response to the swelling protests against military rule, which have now entered their fourth consecutive day. However, the move appeared to do little to assuage the anger of protesters in Cairo.
The ruling Supreme Council of the Armed Forces made no immediate indication how it would respond to the cabinet's resignation offer. Meanwhile, clashes continued between protesters and security forces in the street connecting Tahrir Square to police headquarters.
The Muslim Brotherhood urged protesters to show restraint, and announced that it would not participate in any further demonstrations. Other Islamist groups, however, said they would participate in a protest against military rule on Tuesday.
At least 23 people have died and 1,500 have been injured in the clashes so far, according to the Health Ministry... [More]
Just so you know, the Chancellor of UC Davis, who is under intense pressure to resign in the wake of the indiscriminate pepper spraying by UCD police officers of students who were doing nothing more than sitting and refusing to leave, IS part of the 1%, or close to it... with an $800,000 dollar a year salary.
Meanwhile... The #OccupyOakland General Assembly unanimously voted for a coordinated West Coast port shutdown to disrupt the “economic apparatus of the 1%.”
Also, the #OccupyDallas GA (Dang! Dallas!) calls for a general strike on the 30th of November, and explains, in no uncertain terms why:
Before the General Assembly of Occupy Dallas,
Whereas the General Assembly of Occupy Dallas stands in support of Occupy Wall Street which started September 17, 2011 at Liberty Square in Manhattan’s Financial District. The movement has now spread across the country and is influencing the world. Occupy Dallas is a horizontally organized resistance movement to counteract the unprecedented consolidation of wealth and power in the world today. The Occupy movement does not have a hierarchy or a formalized structure. The Occupy movement represents those that feel disenfranchised from the current socioeconomic system because of policy passed by our political institutions and the actions of those in control of the unprecedented consolidation of wealth;
Whereas by consensus we view that for the first time in American history, current generations will not be as prosperous as preceding generations. This denial of the American Dream is at the heart of Occupy Movement.
Whereas by consensus we view that the social system has become tilted against us by:
Whereas by consensus we view that the Political system has become tilted against us by:
Whereas by consensus we view that the Economic system has become tilted against us by:
Then let it them be resolved by the General Assembly of Occupy Dallas through consensus on Date (___) that we call upon all people to engage in a General Strike on November 30th, 2011. We implore all people to:
o Refrain from Buying or Selling any goods or services including but not limited to, any petroleum products, consumer goods or bank transactions; starting at 12:01 am to 11:59pm on November 30th, 2011.
o Refrain from working for a wage starting at 12:01 am to 11:59pm on November 30th, 2011 excluding those individuals that provide emergency and necessary functions including but not limited to Police, Fire and Medical personnel.
o Join or form local groups to peacefully protest against the above stated elements.
Please join us in solidarity to make known our grievances and demand substantive change to insure our future. [Read The 'Sordid Details' Here]
«o» The highly publicized New York City terrorist arrest the other day was apparently a PR stunt on the part of the city. It turns out the FBI had already informed the NYPD that the guy was a moron working in his mommy's kitchen and was not considered a credible terrorist threat.
(27-year-old Jose) Pimentel was under NYPD surveillance for two years, with the help of a confidential informant, who recorded Pimentel praising bin Laden and talking about killing Americans before he allegedly began following instructions from an article in al-Qaeda in the Arabian Peninsula's English-language magazine, Inspire, entitled "Make a bomb in the kitchen of your mom" (AP, Guardian, NYT).See this article at Tremble the Devil for more stupid terrorists, and historically there HAVE been a bunch of them.
The FBI reportedly turned down two opportunities extended by the NYPD to become involved in Pimentel's investigation, because the Bureau did not believe he had "the predisposition or the ability to anything on his own," according to one official.
This is the second time this year that a terrorism case brought by the Manhattan District Attorney will be tried in state court, rather than federal court, where terrorism trials are more often held (NYT, AP). New York state criminal laws allow Pimentel to be prosecuted on "conspiracy" charges even though the alleged plot was made with someone who is not also charged - in this case, the informant (Lawfare).

Iraq... remember Iraq?
Bombed back to the stone age.
It's former government uprooted, hunted down, and killed or imprisoned. Leaving it a socially, culturally, and economically destroyed nation, and all of that done based on nothing but lies?
The Pentagon says we're leaving, reluctantly:
As US exits Iraq, a top general's warningBut we really aren't going to be gone at all:
As American forces finalize their departure from Iraq, a top challenge for Iraqi security forces will be curbing the continued presence of Sunni and Shiite militant groups, said the top US general in Iraq.
Gen. Lloyd Austin told journalists today that troops "worked as hard as we could for as long as we could" to train Iraqi military and security forces for a "historic transition" that will see all remaining US units gone by the end of the year.
Already, fewer than 20,000 American troops are in Iraq, down from a high of more than 170,000. They are packing their bags and hardware on just eight bases that remain, from the peak of 505 across Iraq. US troops have been virtually absent from Iraqi towns since 2009, so most Iraqis will notice little difference when their government assumes full control... [In Full]
U.S.military presence will continue in Iraq
By Walter Pincus
November 21 2011
The last 24,000 U.S. troops are scheduled to leave Iraq in the next few weeks so that most can be home before Christmas.
The departure is required by the 2008 Iraq-U.S. Status of Forces Agreement signed by Iraq Prime Minister Nouri al-Maliki and then-President George W. Bush and approved by the Iraqi parliament, giving it the status of law.
Meanwhile, don’t believe those agonized voices on Capitol Hill complaining that “having won the war” President Obama is “about to lose the peace” because he didn’t negotiate well enough with Maliki to allow 10,000 to 15,000 U.S. troops to remain.
There will be a U.S. military presence. The Office of Security Cooperation (OSC), operating under the U.S. Embassy in Baghdad, will have several hundred military personnel, and at least an equal number or more U.S. contractors, who will work with Iraqi security forces. Ongoing negotiations with Iraq about OSC activities will determine exact staffing numbers.
Normally, such an office would focus on training for the $8 billion in equipment that Iraq has purchased from U.S. companies. Under current plans, the OSC will do much more... [More]
When you least expect it the authoritarian nature of the state shows through:
