Attempting to Curtail Dissent of Seniors by Stopping Social Security Checks
By Ann Wright
Posted December 29, 2016

war is a crimeGovernments go to pretty low tricks to silent dissent — curtailing ones that travel to neighboring countries and now stopping social security checks. Now under the Obama administration, the latest effort to silence dissent, for those of you 62 or older, is someone in the government falsifying jail records to show that you were in jail/confinement for more than 30 days and sending the records to the Social Security Administration. SSA will then stop your monthly Social Security check and will send you a letter stating that you must repay back months of payments for the time you were allegedly in jail — in my case $4,273.60.

Someone submitted my name and social security number to SSA as a person who has been confined in a jail since September 2016. Without any notification to me of this allegation that would disrupt for months my Social Security benefits, SSA ordered that for my “criminal conviction and confinement in a correctional institution for more than 30 days, we cannot pay your monthly Social Security payment.” More…

The Democratic and Republican Paths to Fascism

The Democratic and Republican Paths to Fascism
By Glen Ford
Posted December 28, 2016

rise of fascism among Democrats and Republicans Fascism moves on two tracks in the U.S.A. The corporate Democratic track moves on war. The Republican (White Man’s Party) track moves on racially coded law and order. Both tracks overlap, and both parties are switch hitters. Sometimes they conflict but, for Black and brown folks and white progressives, there can be no alliance with either faction. There is no gaming these gangsters, no fooling around with the CIA, which has assumed the political point position in the anti-Russian/Trump crusade.

The bill to fund intelligence agencies that passed the House on November 30 established “an executive branch interagency committee to counter active measures by the Russian Federation to exert covert influence over peoples and governments…through front groups, covert broadcasting, media manipulation, disinformation or forgeries, funding agents of influence, incitement, offensive counterintelligence, assassinations, or terrorist acts.” Every category listed, except assassinations and terror, is actually a code word for political speech that can, and will, be used to target those engaged in “undermining faith in American democracy” — such as Black Agenda Report and other left publications defamed as “fake news” outlets by the Washington Post.

The Italian Banking Crisis: No Free Lunch — or Is There?

The Italian Banking Crisis: No Free Lunch — or Is There?
By Ellen Brown
Posted December 27, 2016

Oldest bank in Italy failingOn December 4, 2016, Italian voters rejected a referendum to amend their constitution to give the government more power, and the Italian prime minister resigned. The resulting chaos has pushed Italy’s already-troubled banks into bankruptcy. First on the chopping block is the 500 year old Banca Monte dei Paschi di Siena SpA (BMP), the oldest surviving bank in the world and the third largest bank in Italy. The concern is that its loss could trigger the collapse of other banks and even of the eurozone itself.

There seems little doubt that BMP and other insolvent banks will be rescued. The biggest banks are always rescued, no matter how negligent or corrupt, because in our existing system, banks create the money we use in trade. Virtually the entire money supply is now created by banks when they make loans, as the Bank of England has acknowledged. When the banks collapse, economies collapse, because bank-created money is the grease that oils the wheels of production. More…

The Election: Of Hate, Grief, and a New Story

The Election: Of Hate, Grief, and a New Story
by Charles Eisenstein
Posted December 25, 2016

politicsNormal is coming unhinged. For the last eight years it has been possible for most people (at least in the relatively privileged classes) to believe that society is sound, that the system, though creaky, basically works, and that the progressive deterioration of everything from ecology to economy is a temporary deviation from the evolutionary imperative of progress.

A Clinton Presidency would have offered four more years of that pretense. A woman President following a black President would have meant to many that things are getting better. It would have obscured the reality of continued neoliberal economics, imperial wars, and resource extraction behind a veil of faux-progressive feminism. Now that we have, in the words of my friend Kelly Brogan, rejected a wolf in sheep’s clothing in favor of a wolf in wolf’s clothing, that illusion will be impossible to maintain. More…

Six Steps Trump Can Take Toward Better Monetary Policy
by JP Cortez and Stefan Gleason
Posted December 24, 2016

steps towards monetary reformSince Nixon severed the final link to gold in 1971, the US dollar has lost more than 80% of its purchasing power, wreaking havoc on ordinary savers, conservative investors, and households on fixed incomes. Today, inflationary monetary policy continues to be a foundational tenet of all presidential administrations as politicians and central bankers have heedlessly been borrowing and printing currency without restraint in order to bankroll today’s bloated and insolvent federal government.

Movement in the direction of sound money is badly needed, and even without abolishing central banking, there are several steps that the Trump administration can take toward improving monetary policy. More…

Berlin’s Christmas Market Incident a Likely False Flag

Berlin’s Christmas Market Incident a Likely False Flag
by Stephen Lendman

another false flagClaims of responsibility lack credibility without verifiable proof. None so far exists. What’s known about Monday’s incident suggests false flag responsibility.

They’re identifiable the way fingerprints ID people. They’re strategically timed for an intended purpose. They’re designed to capture world headlines, conceal responsibility of the perpetrator, and point fingers at a convenient patsy or patsies.

On Wednesday, reports indicated Berlin police found identity documents (apparently a passport) belonging to a Tunisian national named Anis A. in the cabin of the truck used to kill and injure dozens on Monday. More…

Most people would find it difficult to believe that a terror perpetrator would leave his identification documents in the vehicle with which he perpetrated his crime. Add to this the fact that this “evidence” was not found until days later.

Within 4 Years, 4 Nonprofit Hospitals in NJ pocketed a Fortune of $1.7 Billion in Profits (tax-free)

Posted December 21, 2016

non-profit hospital?In the early morning hours of May 24, 2011, I found myself at the emergency room of our local nonprofit hospital, Monmouth Medical Center, in Long Branch, New Jersey.  My husband drove me there after a fall I took in our back yard the night before.  Sitting uneasily in a wheelchair with my right leg swollen to about three times its normal size, I politely tried to answer the ER administrator’s 20 to 30 questions (which had nothing to do with my injury) – a mandate provided by the well compensated hospital executives – before I was allowed treatment for my injury.  Here’s a sample:

“Who is your employer?”
“Is this your current employer?”
“What is their address?”
“Do you have insurance?”
“Can you provide proof of insurance?”
“Do you know how much your deductible is?”
“How will you pay for your deductible?”
“We do take credit cards, you know”
“What card will you be using for this visit?”
“Do you have the card with you?”

In pain and frustrated beyond belief, I barked at the gatekeeper blocking me from the care I needed by insisting I was “good” for the bill.  Could I see a doctor now? For those foreign to our unique system, citizens of this country are busy learning American Health Care 101:  Profit before patient care.
