A Synopsis Of This Morning's News...

H/t to ChrisM my MP3Angel for supplying the audio files.
«o» It's Leap Year day, Sadie Hawkins day, the middle of the week, and the snow pack in the mountains which supplies much of the water for California is 30% of normal.

California may end up declaring a water emergency this year which will be quite a trick considering the instructions to civilians still includes "Put a brick in your toilet tank" which worked quite effectively in the 1970s drought... but all of those toilets have been replaced by low water usage models now and barely flush with the standard amount of water in them.

«o» The Israelis have announced that they will announce any attack on Iran, and also claimed they aren't going to tell the U.S. in advance (lie). Obama and aides will meet with the Israeli minister of defense this week.

«o» Julian Assange, WikiLeakers, Anons and Lulzers beware. There's a Guantanamo cage with your name on it. The White House has a new policy on the unlimited detention of American citizens which appears to limit that possibility but increases the potential for such an occurrence if you are involved in anything branded 'terrorist' with anyone who isn't an American.

«o» Olympia Snowe, long time Senator from Maine, will not run for her seat again because she has become angry, fed up, distressed, at the incivility across the aisle at the Capitol. More.

«o» Mitt Romney took the pot in both the Arizona and Michigan primaries yesterday.

«o» There is no progress on the Syrian 'rebellion' front unless you consider French and U.S. arms beginning to show up in rebel hands "progress".

Meanwhile, Senator and FORMER presidential candidate John McCain wants to arm them even as a Joint Chiefs general says the Syrian 'rebels' appear to be al-Qaeda (the Libyan LIFG's involvement SHOULD make it obvious) and he can't 'clearly identify' who the 'opposition' is:
Amid a growing chorus of conservative voices urging the arming of the Syrian opposition, the International Committee of the Red Cross (ICRC) said Monday it's trying to broker a ceasefire that would bring at least a temporary halt to violence that has killed over 6,000 people.

Meanwhile, Sen. John McCain (R-Arizona) called for the arming of the Syrian opposition, to defend itself from Bashar al-Assad's brutal crackdown. "It is time we gave the (opposition) the wherewithal to fight back and stop the slaughter," McCain said at a Cairo news conference on Monday, Agence-France Press reported.

But top U.S. officials and analysts dismissed such proposals as hasty and unwise, especially given recent U.S. intelligence assessments that al-Qaida is operating in Syria to conduct attacks against the Assad regime.

"I think it's premature to take a decision to arm the opposition movement in Syria because I would challenge anyone to clearly identify for me the opposition movement in Syria at this point," Gen. Martin Dempsey, chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff, told CNN's Fareed Zakaria in an interview broadcast Sunday... [In Full]

A Synopsis Of This Morning's News...

H/t to ChrisM my MP3Angel for supplying the audio files.
«o» In Afghanistan the Koran burning riots continue unabated even as the end of the work week comes and there will be people who did not previously have a chance to vent their rage in the streets. The UN, NATO and Western forces are 'restructuring'... Meaning they've abandoned any civilian liaison roles in the country. Get this... We've lost the war on Afghanistan to re-make it in the Western image, and all that's left is to kill people.

«o» Canada is ready to go ahead with their portion of the KeystoneXL pipeline. The route will bypass Nebraska, which vehemently resisted the pipeline through that state. Current routing plans and more follow.

«o» The Republicans will hold their Michigan and Arizona primaries today. Mitt Romney is expected to win in Arizona, but will he take his home state?

«o» Syria has resumed strikes on Homs in the aftermath of a Constitutional referendum vote which passed by a large majority.

The new arrangement, which the expat Syrian National Congress and it's Western backed (Saudi proxy army for a start) 'rebels' reject, looks like this:

Parapolitical:
"Syrians ratified a new organic law today with 89-percent voting for, and 9-percent against, the proposed constitution, Syria’s Interior Ministry reported. Just over half the eligible electorate participated in the referendum, which will realize several structural reforms in the constitutional makeup of Syrian government."


«o» Even as China bans Monsanto GMO rice, in this country 27,000 organic farmers are suing the company in a mass litigation over their organic farming rights.


In OTHER News:

Captain Paul Watson of the Sea Shepherd Conservation Society understands Deep Green Resistance:
"As for myself, I do not believe in loggers, I believe in trees. I do not believe in fishermen, I believe in fish. I do not believe in miners, I believe in the rocks beneath my feet. I do not believe in pie in the sky spirituality, I believe in rainbows, rivers, mountains and moss. I do not believe in environmentalists, I believe in the environment. I am a proud traitor to my species in alliance with my mother the Earth in opposition to those who would destroy her, those parasites who believe the Earth is here to serve human interests."

A Synopsis Of This Morning's News...

H/t to ChrisM my MP3Angel for supplying the audio files.
«o» PFC Bradley Manning got his arraignment day in court yesterday. Manning has been accused of turning hundreds of thousands of documents including the globally viewed "Collateral Murder" video over to WikiLeaks. He has 22 counts against him including 'aiding the enemy'.

Over the last two years of his incarceration he spent a year in solitary confinement at Quantico brig and was tortured in the manner they torture inmates at SHU ('Security Housing Unit') prisons throughout America.

The confinement itself is a form of torture.

For a start, despite the fact the locked down prisoners spend 23 hours in a cell, the cell is not high enough to stand up in. Bradley Manning, convicted of nothing yet has been subject to that treatment for a year. The confinement most likely permanently damaged his skeletal structure as it does with CONVICTED prisoners at California's Pelican Bay and other hellholes you never read about in the newspapers until the prisoners riot.

«o» al-Qaeda has claimed US intelligence reports were correct in regard to a rash of bombings around Iraq yesterday that killed and injured 240+ people.

«o» Pakistan wants to host ceasefire talks between the Taliban and the government of Afghanistan with the US in an observer role

«o» Maryland is about to become the ninth state to pass a same sex marriage bill. The governor says he will sign it as soon as it clears the legislature.

«o» Germany is pulling out of their only base in Afghanistan and will continue operating in the country in a support role only.

Meanwhile, all around Afghanistan the word on the street is "Apologies ARE NOT enough!"
Protests against Quran burning rage for fourth day

Apologies: President Barack Obama on Thursday sent an official letter of apology to Afghan president Hamid Karzai over NATO troops' accidental burning of Qurans, but protests across Afghanistan continued unabated Friday for the fourth straight day, with protesters congregating outside NATO and Afghan government installations (CNN, AP,AJE, BBC, NYT, CNN). At least two protesters were killed in Kabul on Friday and many more across the country were injured (Reuters).
Even as NATO and US troops are being attacked by the army they are ostenisbly training, and the attacks have increased dramatically:
The killing of two NATO service members by a man in an Afghan Army uniform on Thursday during protests in Afghanistan occurred as the U.S. military is urgently reviewing its security procedures in order to prevent such friendly fire attacks (NYT). Of the 45 incidents of violence against NATO troops by Afghan security forces or private contractors since 2007, 75% have taken place in the last two years, intensifying officials' concerns over this issue...

«o» Rioting over the intentional and 'authorized' burning of Korans by Western forces at Bagram prison continues to spread (still more) with approximately half of the cities in Afghanistan experiencing 'civil disturbances' even as the US and NATO have seven "Advisors" and soldiers killed... 14 wounded, by an Afghani soldier who turned his machine gun on his trainers and the soldiers in the area. These attacks are becoming a 'systemic problem' according to Western war planners with "at least 77 lives in the past five years, with three-quarters occurring since early 2010,". More at the Examiner.

«o» In our last war... Iraq, there have been five coordinated bombings in Baghdad against government and police agencies which left fifty dead and two hundred wounded. 'Five' is also the number of Iraqi cities in some stage of insurrection.

«o» In U.S. politics President Obama is beginning to release the details of his tax policies. There is a corporate tax rate cut to 28% with some loopholes and tax breaks going away along with alleged 'increased enforcement'. The chances of the bill even getting out of committee no less make it to the floor by the fall is nil.

«o» Last night saw the TWENTIETH debate between the Republicans with NO discussion of current national issues at all even as next Tuesday bring us the Michigan and Arizona Republican primaries.

>Let’s pretend for one moment that you’re a music label. How do you stop the online piracy that’s eating into your profits? Here are some possible steps:

Step 1: Get a lawyer.

Step 2: Send a cease and desist order to The Pirate Bay, the biggest BitTorrent site for sharing movies, music, porn, computer programs, you name it.

Step 3: Realize you don’t know who is operating The Pirate Bay. Notice they are dismissing all legal threats on their blog with statements like: “0 torrents has been removed, and 0 torrents will ever be removed. :)”

Step 4: Go back to the drawing board.

Step 5: Seek a High Court judgement that lets you get an injunction on the country’s top Internet Service Providers (ISPs). This way, they can block their customers from accessing The Pirate Bay.

Step 6: Realize that people who use The Pirate Bay are quickly finding new ways to evade their ISPs.

Step 7: Go back to the drawing board.

We’re at Step 5 in Britain.

Earlier this week Britain’s High Court agreed with Sony and eight other record labels, that the Pirate Bay infringed on copyright. This gave the labels permission under section 97A of the Copyrights, Designs and Patents Act to get an injunction on Britain’s six biggest Internet Services Providers, ordering the likes of BSkyB, BT Group and Virgin Media to block access to The Pirate Bay. (The fire-sharing site has 3.7 million users in Britain, according to comScore.)

Many see this as a devastating act of censorship. The Pirate Bay dubbed the U.K. the “United Kingdom of Censorship,” in response to the ruling. Site co-founder Peter Sunde, who no longer works with the site but is fingered in the High Court judgment, said the entertainment industry was a “copyright mafia” seeking “protection money” from ISPs. The U.K.’s Pirate Party said Britain was “sleepwalking into comprehensive site-blocking.”

It does seem a tad hypocritical of the British government to condemn online censorship in the Middle East, before going on to suggest blockades of social networks during riots and watching its courts ban troublesome piracy sites. But actually blocking a site like The Pirate Bay is so complicated, it may even be ineffectual anyway...

H/t to ChrisM my MP3Angel for supplying the audio files.
«o» There WAS a real problem, and now there's a real BIG problem. Prisoners at Bagram prison near Kabul Afghanistan were using books as a form of communications vehicle so the prison officials decided to confiscate the books and then... they... BURNED them. Including a number of Qur'ans.

There is rioting in three Afghani cities now... Western embassies are on lockdown, and we can't say this sort of holy book mutilation has never happened before.

See HERE and HERE.

Details at the Guardian UK:
Qur'an protesters attack Kabul compound housing foreigners

US embassy also in lockdown as violent clashes spread across Afghanistan on second day of protests over burning of holy book

Emma Graham-Harrison in Kabul
guardian.co.uk, 22 February 2012


Afghan protesters armed with stones and molotov cocktails have attacked a military base and a compound housing foreign workers in Kabul, in a second day of violence over the burning of copies of the Qur'an by foreign forces.

At least 16 demonstrators and one police officer were injured as enraged crowds took to the streets in central and eastern Afghanistan, shouting "Death to America" and "Death to Obama".

Police in Kabul used water cannon and fired guns into the air to deter the demonstrators, who were attacking shops and smashing car windows. Security guards in the compound that came under attack also opened fire with automatic rifles.

A military base was attacked on the outskirts of the capital.

Eleven men were treated for gunshot wounds in Kabul, said Kabir Amiri, spokesman for the city's hospitals. Another five people were injured in eastern Jalalabad, said Ahmad Zia Ahmadzai, spokesman for the provincial governor.

The demonstrations began in the early hours of Tuesday morning, after Afghan workers at the sprawling Bagram airbase spotted copies of the Qur'an among waste paper sent for incineration.

They extinguished the flames and left the base with some of the damaged books, which had been taken from prisoners in a detention centre at Bagram.

A military official, who asked not to be named, said the books had been removed from the jail library because some had added inscriptions that appeared to be in use to "facilitate extremist communications" or were extremist "in and of themselves".

Nato-led forces rushed to apologise for the burning, which the commander of foreign forces in Afghanistan, General John Allen, described as "not intentional".

But damage to the Qur'an is a highly sensitive issue in Afghanistan and protests began almost immediately.

"When the Americans insult us to this degree, we will join the insurgents," said Ajmal, an 18-year-old protester in Kabul told Reuters.

The city's police chief, Ayub Salangi, came to the most violent protest in the city to appeal for calm. "I am with you, please cool your temper, I am with you," he told the crowd, but they turned on him and started throwing stones at his car. [More]
«o» Two days of talks between officials of the IAEA and Iran regarding it's nuclear power program have apparently left the IAEA officials dissatisfied and Iranian officials have apparently suggested a pre-emptive strike against Israel to match Israel's longstanding threat to Iran.

«o» There will be ANOTHER Republican debate tonight in Arizona while you're trying to eat dinner.

«o» Late breaking story... The Capitol building is locked down after two US Senate offices receive envelopes with 'white powder' in them.

As US Debt To GDP (ratio) Passes 101%, The Global Debt Ponzi Enters Its Final Stages

by Tyler Durden, 02/21/2012


Today, without much fanfare, US debt to GDP hit 101% with the latest issuance of $32 billion in 2 Year Bonds. If the moment when this ratio went from double to triple digits is still fresh in readers minds, is because it is: total debt hit and surpassed the most recently revised Q4 GDP on January 30, or just three weeks ago. Said otherwise, it has taken the US 21 days to add a full percentage point to this most critical of debt sustainability ratios: but fear not, with just under $1 trillion in new debt issuance on deck in the next 9 months, we will be at 110% in no time. Still, this trend made us curious to see who has been buying (and selling) US debt over the past year. The results are somewhat surprising. As the chart below

So somehow the world's two most indebted countries (recall that Japan is about to in total pass 1 quadrillion debt) are out there and buying up the biggest amount of US debt (after the Fed of course)? Sorry, but while we are amusing by this attempt by the global ponzi regime to keep itself alive (even as Russia and China prudently step aside from the mauling that is sure to follow), whereby the most indebted nations keep buying each other's debt in the most transparent and potentially deadly shell game in history, we are also confident this is unsustainable... [In Full]
Meanwhile, Forbes, bless their greedy little Capitalist hearts, notes that America has a 20 year plan, an "Austerity Plan" much like Greece.
The Federal Reserve's Explicit Goal: Devalue The Dollar 33%

The Federal Reserve Open Market Committee (FOMC) has made it official: After its latest two day meeting, it announced its goal to devalue the dollar by 33% over the next 20 years. The debauch of the dollar will be even greater if the Fed exceeds its goal of a 2 percent per year increase in the price level.

An increase in the price level of 2% in any one year is barely noticeable. Under a gold standard, such an increase was uncommon, but not unknown. The difference is that when the dollar was as good as gold, the years of modest inflation would be followed, in time, by declining prices. As a consequence, over longer periods of time, the price level was unchanged. A dollar 20 years hence was still worth a dollar.

But, an increase of 2% a year over a period of 20 years will lead to a 50% increase in the price level. It will take 150 (2032) dollars to purchase the same basket of goods 100 (2012) dollars can buy today. What will be called the “dollar” in 2032 will be worth one-third less (100/150) than what we call a dollar today... [More]

A Synopsis Of This Morning's News...

H/t to ChrisM my MP3Angel for supplying the audio files.
«o» The problem with recruiting "God on your side" is sometimes God doesn't cooperate. Extending New Orleans Fat Tuesday Mardi Gras celebration backwards to the weekend in an attempt to commercialize it for the nuevo-gentry moved into the gentrified-in-the-wake-of-Katrina city has backfired... It rained... heavily at times, over the weekend.

«o» Iran has banned oil exports to France and Britain with most of Europe to follow in April as retaliation for their go-it-alone sanctioning of the country for it's non-existent 'nuclear weapons program'. The price of oil is beginning to rise globally with $5 dollar a gallon gasoline expected in the US within a few months. Expect a closure of the Straits of Hormuz for naval exercises shortly further shutting of the oil teat to the West.

«o» We don't understand why anyone listens to him but former presidential candidate John McCain has come out in favor of arming the Syrian 'rebels' and providing Special Operations personnel to assist. It's pretty much a foregone conclusion that NATO has already done this, and even the Wikipedia entry for Libya is noting the recently enthroned CIA/al-Qaeda affiliated 'rebels' in Libya are supplying arms and logistics, even as that country moves towards civil war.

«o» Yemen's elections are being held today with the most likely winner to be the Vice President installed by former president Saleh

«o» The $170 billion dollar bailout for Greece is still hanging fire with the EU finance ministers meeting for 13 hours yesterday. A paper circulating in the group claims $170 billion dollars won't be enough, which may cause not only the bailout, but Greece as well, to fail.


In OTHER News:

o They want ALL OF THEIR DEMOCRACY now... From the Spanish Indignados... A note that their country, with a 40% plus youth unemployment rate, the highest in the Western world, may become the next "Greece".

A Synopsis Of This Morning's News...

H/t to ChrisM my MP3Angel for supplying the audio files.
«o» The withholding tax relief bill will pass in the house and senate today just in time for your legislators to go home for recess, The Medicare fix is in the package as well, but the Republicans put a limit on the number of weeks unemployment benefits may be paid, from 99 weeks to 63 weeks.

«o» The Senate also passed a 'personhood bill' which declares a 'person' has rights from the moment of conception.

«o» China and the US signed an agriculture trade and scientific research agreement (which will undoubtedly favor Monsanto and other GMO crop producers) while the Chinese Vice President was on tour in Iowa, where he resided for some time 30 years ago.

«o» The Taliban are denying that there will be three way talks between Afghanistan, the Taliban and the US but negotiations are still continuing for the release of five Taliban prisoners held at Guantanamo Bay Concentration Camp.

«o» In Greece, the government has come up with another $26 billion dollars in cuts for their austerity program while the European Union finance minsters prepare their loan guarantees to the country.


In OTHER News:

Radwan!

How are you doing?
Long time no see since you fled to Turkey.

How's the weather?

So what's up with the failure to mention the upcoming referendum vote on a new Syrian constitution and multiple parties that was planned a while back, even as you and your 'friends' who don't really want a constitutional government (the Syrian National Council you represent) fled to Turkey and engaged in a NATO-CIA sponsored war on the legitimate government of Syria using weapons supplied by (at least) the new CIA-NATO government of Libya?

Those dead people are on you bud.

Your truly,
Razer Ray

Radwan Ziadeh: A Plea For U.S. Intervention From A "Syrian Activist"

From a quick scan and casual observation it looks like the BIGGEST "welfare queens and kings" live in the more conservative rural areas of the US not the urban ghettos and overall most of the benefits seem to be paid out in rural areas of the US.

A Synopsis Of This Morning's News...

H/t to ChrisM my MP3Angel for supplying the audio files.
«o» If Obama's economic policies are working at all this may be it showing - Last week's unemployment claim filings dropped by 13,000 to 316,000... the lowest total claims filed since 2000 and the fourth decline in five weeks.

«o» This had been planned for a while but a destabilization operation got in the way - Syria's president Bashar Assad has delivered an executive order that there will a referendum vote on a new constitution and multiple political parties. That vote will happen on the 26th of this month. The calls for Assad to step down and attacks by CIA supplied rebels continue however.

«o» President Obama is threatening to veto a Republican transportation bill that would cut unions out of federal contracts and ease environmental regulations.

«o» Even as NATO negotiates to reopen roadways closed to them due to previous attacks on Pakistani civilians and troops, there has been another drone attack in Waziristan killing eleven alleged terrorists. CIA operated drones have a truly awful track record with a 50:1 civilian to 'combatant' kill ratio according to numbers released by Pakistan a few years ago. Recent mainstream media reports indicate the strikes are often followed by another strike on people coming to assist and rescue, which would kill even more civilians.

«o» The European Union's finance minsters are balking at a $1.7 trillion dollar loan guarantee/bailout of the Greek economy despite that country's parliamentary vote for economic austerity measures such as cutting the country's minimum wage in half. Riots in the streets of Athens continue. At least 100 buildings have been burned.

«o» Is the end of the combat role in Afghanistan sneaking up on us? Talks are scheduled for the beginning next month in Qatar between the Talban, the Karzai government and the US, with the US potentially having agreed to release five Guantanamo prisoners. More.

Foreign Policy's AfPak channel puts it in a less optimistic way even as Secretary of Defense Leon Panetta vacillates on the release of Taliban prisoners at Guantanamo:
Afghan Taliban spokesman Zabiullah Mujahid told CNN in an email on Tuesday that the Taliban refuse to negotiate with President Hamid Karzai's "puppet" government, considering these talks pointless as "everyone around the world knows that the one who has got the authority in opposition to the Mujahideen [Taliban] is America" (CNN). Mujahid also confirmed that the Taliban have met with U.S. officials in Qatar, but that trust-building measures -- such as the release of Guantรกnamo Bay detainees -- must be completed before talks can proceed. [In Full]
«o» The international conference on 'what to do about Somalia?' goes into session even as no agenda or expectation is set and Pan-African forces begin to pull out of the country. al-Shabab, the rebel Islamic movement fighting a counterinsurgency war against the Ethiopian army working in conjunction with the CIA and DynCorp is going to be excluded from the talks, so expect more mayhem in Mogadishu and elsewhere around the country.

«o» What-to do-two... The European countries along with the US are holding conferences on 'What to do about Syria?'. Without the excluded-from-talks China and Russia's agreement... That's pretty much nothing.

«o» New Jersey's senate has passed a gay marriage bill but the governor is threatening to veto it. That makes eight states with same sex marriages... for now.

«o» The vice president of China has finished his White House and Senate visit. Now he is off to Iowa where he will visit with a local family he had stayed with a number of years ago while temporarily residing in the US. Then he's off to L.A. and a return to China.

«o» The Republicans have caved in to not only the withholding tax relief, but the unemployment extension and funding for doctors taking supplemental medicare payments.
