US Poverty Rate Expected to Post a Record Increase

By Hope Yen

Should those estimates hold true, some 45 million people in this country, or more than 1 in 7, were poor last year. It would be the highest single-year increase since the government began calculating poverty figures in 1959. The previous high was in 1980 when the rate jumped 1.3 percentage points to 13 percent during the energy crisis.

Quran Burning and US Inconsistency

By Lamis Andoni

Why does the US government think burning Qurans is less civilized than drone attacks on civilian populations?

Tony Blair and the Great Islamic Threat

By Gwynne Dyer

Blair has never publicly acknowledged that Saddam was actually an enemy of radical Islam: admitting that would drain the last dram of logic from his justification for invading Iraq. So he only talks in general terms about fighting "radical Islam" and hopes that the more ignorant part of the public will think that includes the Iraq war.

Frequency therapy message

WEBSITE MESSAGE (by Joanne C. Mueller on 9-13-10)

TO: RICK COLLINGWOOD - SUBJECT: NEUROSONIC THERAPY....mp3 player with music at specific therapeutic frequency ..... re AUTISM (ASD)

This is an enquiry e-mail via from: Joanne

Dear Rick: I believe you are on right track with neurosonic frequency therapy.

The correct frequencies/vibrations for "limited time periods" are used not only to help reduce symptoms of neurodegenerative disorders, but also to heal bone, reduce pain and more.

My website - - has facts relating to "harm" that occurs as result of what I consider to be comparable to "too much therapy due to close, chronic, prolonged electric field exposures." I "focus" on adverse effects of sleeping close to electric meters, appliances and in particular, electric clock radios and cordless phones, other telephone equipment, and any item with a speaker (magnet).

Links to three of my most important letters that are not on my website cite "improvement in Alzheimers as well as symptoms of the autism:



Sleep Sheep creating a tranquil environment?

I believe you are in an excellent position to help me inform the public of the vital need to reduce bedroom electric field exposures while, at the same time, facts re our family's objective evidence re "improvement," will help persons understand why therapeutic use of neurosonic frequenciy stimulation is beneficial.

Feel free to call or email - ..... 763-755-6114 Joanne C. Mueller -

The corporate-government war on private food

Tortured law

Unqualified Offerings
by Thoreau


Not only is the existence of this torture program not a secret, it’s also not a legitimate topic for secrecy. The only legitimate reason to keep secrets from the American people is to protect their safety. Troop movements in defensive wars (not to be confused with all wars), the locations and technical specs of defensive measures, the identities of informants providing reliable information on actual bad guys, these are things that must be kept secret for our safety. The identities and locations of publicly-funded torturers should not be kept secret. In fact, they should be broadcast from the rooftops...

The illusion of a stimulus

Independent Institute
by Alvaro Vargas Llosa


Stimulus policies started during George W. Bush’s final year in office and have continued, with vehemence, under Obama — to no avail. The response to this failure betrays a mind-boggling inability to learn the lesson. If almost $1 trillion of fiscal spending and a tripling of the Fed’s balance sheet have not done the trick, leaders should realize by now that the process of economic healing — paying down debts, liquidating redundant assets, saving and, eventually, investing and consuming again — cannot be altered by political diktat...

The neoliberal bait-and-switch

In These Times
by David Sirota


In simplistic, Lexus-and-Olive-Tree terms, the neoliberal economic argument goes like this: Tariff-free trade policies are great because they increase commerce, and we can mitigate those policies’ negative effects on the blue-collar job market by upgrading our education system to cultivate more science, technology, engineering and math (STEM) specialists for the white-collar sector. Known as the bipartisan Washington Consensus, this deceptive theory projects the illusion of logic. After all, if the domestic economy’s future is in STEM-driven innovation, then it stands to reason that trade policies shedding ‘low-tech’ work and education policies promoting high-tech skills could guarantee success. Of course, 30 years into the neoliberal experiment, the Great Recession is exposing the flaws of the Washington Consensus. But rather than admit any mistakes, neoliberals now defend themselves with yet more bait-and-switch sophistry — this time in the form of the Great Education Myth...

Gunning for Islam

by Justin Raimondo


Maybe [Geert] Wilders has been smoking too much of that strong Dutch weed, but to argue that we’re too tolerant to tolerate the intolerant seems a bit odd. Then again, Dutch neo-fascism no doubt suffers in translation. Wilders, [Pamela] Geller, and ‘Jihad Watch’ anti-Islam guru Robert Spencer want to import Europe’s Muslim-hating racist fringe to America: their thesis is that Islam is not a religion, but a political conspiracy to impose Sharia law on non-Muslims. They raise the specter of an Islamic States of America, with American women draped in the chador and mandatory mosque attendance — a scenario that doesn’t even qualify as credible science fiction...

America’s jihad on America

Mother Jones
by Adam Weinstein


In that moment, we could have redoubled our faith in the America that is New York. We could have affirmed the sentiment offered us by 60,000 solemn Iranians (Iranians!) observing a minute of silence in Tehran’s largest soccer stadium — a sentiment epitomized in Le Monde’s September 12 front-page headline: ‘Nous sommes tous Americains.’ We could have ushered in a new era of cosmopolitanism, not only abroad, but on United States territory, from Guam to the newly-christened Ground Zero. We could have. But we didn’t. We needed war — for, as journalist Chris Hedges wrote, war is a force that gives us meaning. And it continues to, not just abroad, but at Ground Zero...

The problem is empire, not Islam

Future of Freedom Foundation
by Jacob G. Hornberger


I suspect that the reason that so many Americans have gone off on the anti-Islamic kick is their steadfast refusal to confront the fact that the 9/11 attacks were the direct consequence of the bad things their federal government had been doing to Muslims in the Middle East prior to 9/11. It’s as if people perceive the federal government to be a sacred god, one that is all-knowing and all-good...

American history, American war, American empire

Campaign For Liberty
by David Gordon


It is hardly news that George Bush’s Iraq War has been a disastrous failure and that Barack Obama, learning nothing from his predecessor, has renewed and expanded our crusade in Afghanistan. Criticisms of recent American policy have not been slow in coming, and Bruce Fein, in this excellent book, has given us one of the best of these. But he does more than this. He embeds his criticism of our current military misadventures within a full-scale account of the history of American foreign policy...

When will the bad dream end?

by Anthony Gregory


In a normal country, war is front-page news. … The United States is not a normal country. If it ever was one, it certainly isn’t now. Its imperial foreign policy has long made it special, and now that it’s the world’s lone superpower — with an effective monopoly on aerial warfare, calling the shots as to who can have nukes, claiming the unilateral right to start wars against anyone — the U.S. government has become so belligerent, and especially in remote lands, that American wars have become routine, its casualties relegated to the back page...

Ground Zero mosque Imam blames Sarah Palin for 'growing Islamophobia':

The Muslim cleric behind plans to build a mosque close to the Ground Zero site has blamed politicians such as Sarah Palin for fuelling a "growing Islamophobia" that led to the burning of Korans on the ninth anniversary of the September 11 attacks.
