"The Military Industrial Arms Complex" has a large stake in creating discord and fear among the populations here and abroad. If we were at peace...the Military Industrial Arms Complex wouldn't have the Billions & Trillions of tax payer dollars to reap in profit.
With that said... We must realize that the mentality of profit drives The Military Industrial Arms Complex.. Their existing mindset is... "That, A World At War, is a Very Profitable World."
The Military Industrial Arms Complex... Uses Fear as a Tool.
To The Military Industrial Arms Complex... To Create conflict and discord in the world... creates fear in the populations... and "that Fear" guarantees the Military Industrial Arms Complex will always have never-ending profits and a World of Never-ending conflict".
Our Reality..... Is Corrupt For-Profit Corporations ( i.e.) The Military Industrial Arms Complex; who deliberately create a shared global nightmare for all people world-wide... All to increase their corporate profits." Those are truly crimes against humanity!
Is this the world we want to live in and, raise our families in ???
Currently, and in the months and years ahead here in the Unites States, there is [A PLAN] A plan driven by greed and created to affect every man woman and child everywhere... That plan is forced draconian style austerity... The same plan we have seen in Greece, Spain, Ireland, and England (etc...) we should expect the same results.
[ THE PLAN } was created by the True Architects of our"Fiscal Deficit" & 9-11. A Deficit created by Criminal Theft... implemented and Hidden as "U.S. Foreign AID"... Billions in Tax Payer Money supposedly given to buy favor in countries World-Wide ~ but funds directed to all be Paid to The Military Industrial Arms Complex... as "CORPORATE WELFARE"
Add to that, Billions more paid... hidden in CIA & NSA black projects... The kicker is... all those Tax Payer Dollars ~ Billions & Billions directly into the bank accounts of the Military Industrial Arms Complex via...their Criminal Banker Financiers!!!
"Terror for Profit" counterparts" (The same Criminal Bankers who schemed & foreclosed on American Families and who we also bailed out with even more billions and Trillions of tax payer dollars!
What you are seeing.... is a Grand Mega Ponze scheme that all the Tax Payers are paying for! A scheme that created the "Fiscal Deficit" in the first place! A scheme robbing tax payers creating huge profits for the very few at the top 1% and supporting the Profits for Terror Scheme.
THE BUCK STOPS WITH US! ~ WE PAY FOR ALL OF THIS!
And, We OUT NUMBER THEM! 99 to 1
We need to make "OUR WORLD" a safer place to raise our families in... We can't sit back and watch TV as the The Military Industrial Arms Complex escalate it's criminal scheme BASED ON "Terror For Profit".in our name and that we all pay for!
TODAY: We need and we expected bright intelligent creative thinkers ... Not Backward thinking cold war neocon bullies feeding Criminal Corporate Industrialists as our Government is doing today. aka: Business as Usual
What we see today the U.S. Government Is using the same business Plan as North Korea... YES.... A Government that regularly starves it Population to build Weapons and Military! Look at what is going on here in the USA.... But, you won't hear any of this on our Local Corporate Media TV puppet shows. Remember... that the media's main official role is to hide the truth from it's citizens. To keep the population calm, stupid and entertained as they continue to conrtrol the population and continue to advance an austerity plan to suck that money out of all our pockets and from our economy and into the global war machine. This plan is the same as what goes on in North Korea.
Will Rodgers asked the question:"If Stupidity got us into this mess, then why can't it get us out?
The Answer is clearly: That it Can't... So why are we doing exactly that?
WE NEED POSITIVE SOLUTIONS... We can't afford the same old stupidly:
(1) We need leaders who to think outside of the box to get NEW Creative Solutions to Old Problems...
(2) We need to remove The word "PROFIT" from Government!
(3) We need to prosecute Greed, Corruption in Government ~not protect these criminals!
(4) We Need to Protect & Reward Whistle Blowers reporting government crimes ~ not prosecute them!
Dwight D. Eisenhower said:
" We will bankrupt ourselves in the vain search for absolute security."
Dwight D. Eisenhower again:
"May we never confuse honest dissent ~ with criminal profit & disloyal subversion."
CRIMINAL ACTS OF DISLOYAL SUBVERSION:
In order to protect the never ending"Terror for Profit Scheme"... These for-profit corporations have paid, bribed and lobbied to change our civil laws. Then backed that up with a plan to militarize local police into para-military soldiers with free equipment and training with projects like "OPERATION URBAN SHIELD" A joint para-military program that targets All US Citizens as "DomesticTerrorists" it those Citizen's object to the U.S. Government's Policy. Policies like: Military Drone Acts of Terrorism directed globally. Programs targeting "Domestic Civil-Unrest" (Occupy Movement etc.) under the Government's Label of "Domestic Terrorism". The same iron fisted policies we have seen practiced against citizens in Greece, Bahrain and Spain as their citizens react to Forced Austerity. We should all expect the same here in the USA. if you object to Bank Fraud, Keystone XL Pipeline, Citizens United, NDAA, The Patriot Act... to name just a few… and the up-coming Forced Austerity i.e.: The re-direction of funds from "entitlements" ~ to support the growing Military Industrial Arms Complex's war on Global Terror. Then you too, are on their DT list.
BOLDER ACTS OF DISLOYAL SUBVERSION:
The Military Industrial Arms Complex have pushed for brutal Fascist laws that subvert and change our American Constitution with "The Patriot Act, and NDAA directed at the U.S. Citizens so that they can be charged as Domestic Terrorists. jailed for life without trial… or if they choose: Killed, or Tortured without any hope of Justice or trial.
The introduction of these Fascist policies guarantee to protect the never ending funding of the MIAC "Terror for Profit Scheme" protecting the cash flow of The Military Industrial Arms Complex and plans of global domination.
Dwight D. Eisenhower again said:
"May we never confuse honest dissent ~ with criminal profit & disloyal subversion."
The Following are Perfect Examples of Honest 1st Amendment Protected dissent:
* Repeal The Patriot Act
* Repeal The The NDAA
* Free Bradley Manning
* Free Julian Assange

Dwight D. Eisenhower never in his wildest dreams could imagine the criminals behind The Patriot Act and forcing NDAA on the American People. I am sure Dwight D. Eisenhower would of called The Patriot Act and NDAA = Pure Treason written by Criminals!

(Reuters) - Two former executives at an Icelandic bank which collapsed in the 2008 financial meltdown were sentenced to jail on Friday for fraud which led to a 53 million euro loss, in the first major trial of Icelandic bankers linked to the crisis.
All three of the small North Atlantic island's top banks collapsed in quick succession in October 2008 due to big debts incurred during a rapid overseas expansion.
Glitnir was the first to fall after the collapse of Lehman Brothers caused international credit markets to freeze up.
A Reykjavik court sentenced Glitnir's former chief executive, Larus Welding, and former head of corporate finance, Gudmundur Hjaltason, each to nine months in jail, of which six months were suspended for two years. They had denied the charges.
Prosecutors said the two approved a loan to a company which owned shares in Glitnir so that the company could in turn repay a debt to Morgan Stanley.
The decision, taken outside the regular decision-making process, meant Glitnir was too exposed to the company and cost the bank at least 53.7 million euros (43 million pounds), the prosecution said.
The sentence was less than the jail terms of at least five years demanded by Iceland's special prosecutor, who is looking into alleged wrongdoing connected to the crisis.
"We have a conviction, which is of course the main thing," prosecutor Holmsteinn Sigurdsson told reporters outside the courtroom when asked whether he was disappointed with the length of the sentence.
The special prosecutor is also looking into alleged wrongdoing linked to the collapse of the other two former top banks, Landsbanki and Kaupthing.

DUBAI (Reuters) - An Iranian court has sentenced four people to death for their roles in a billion-dollar banking fraud scandal that forced bank executives out of their jobs and tainted the government of President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad, state media reported on Monday.
The embezzlement case, discovered in September 2011, revolved around forged documents allegedly used by the directors of an Iranian investment company to secure loans totaling $2.6 billion to buy state-owned enterprises.
Thirty-nine people were tried for their involvement in the fraud.

I received this petition and call to action today from MoveOn.Org. I'd like to know why this petition is even neccessary?
[Today could be the day when President Obama decides if he'll stand with homeowners or with the big Wall Street banks behind the housing crisis. We need to keep the pressure on the president to launch a full federal investigation now, and not to give into the banks' demand for a sweetheart settlement deal. Can you make a phone call to the president right now demanding an investigation?White House comment line: 202-456-1111
Then, please report your call by clicking here:
Why are we having to CONVINCE our president to do the right thing? I made the call, but I told it like it is, please feel free to follow my script if you choose to. I believe that we have done enough pussyfooting around with those who are supposed to represent us in the White House.
... There are hundreds of thousands of families who are still living in the homes that have been foreclosed on, hoping and praying that some justice will be done , that right action will take place on their behalf. If you, Mr. President, give a settlement to the banks which have created this poverty economy, the banks will have a field day with an unprecedented LAND GRAB...Make no mistake, for the Millions who have already been ousted, duped into thinking there was nothing they could do to save their homes, to those who have yet to be put out in the streets if you betray them/us even further, you will see such a swell of Occupiers on the White House lawn as will be inconceivable.
Will such a cowardly and treasonous act cause a civil war? Probably... Is this what you want? Is this your goal for your country, to have your foot upon the necks of Americans? Are you too, OWNED by the banks? I would not have thought so, but if you condone the fraudulent and criminal actions of the banks and investment firms that have brought this suffering upon the American People, you will have shown yourself to be without moral conscience, without patriotic affiliation to the people you have sworn to serve and that you are without the backbone to stand up to the corruption that is the downfall of our civilization in this moment, at this time. If you betray your people, I do not know how you will possibly be able to look your wife and children in the eye. Shame is upon you for even considering this settlement.
Mr. President, Do the right thing, REFUSE any kind of settlement until a complete investigation can be carried out and criminal charges brought to bear on those whose greed and corruption have injured not only our own countries economy, but have crossed oceans and touched the lives of many other countries in the world. Become the leader you were meant to be, that you promised you would be. Stand up and act with purpose and solidarity with your people, not with big money, big banks or big corporations.
Most Sincerely, your fellow Americans.I received this petition and call to action today from MoveOn.Org. I'd like to... more

Bad enough there are countless victims of sloppy foreclosure mills (you know, like the firm that threw the homeless themed Halloween party a year ago, then tossed workers out when they shut their own doors just a couple weeks ago) now we find out illegal foreclosures on military personnel might be a huge issue too. 'Thank you for your service to the nation, now get out of this house the bank thinks it owns?' WTF?
"Washington, D.C. – The U.S. Treasury's Office of the Comptroller of the Currency (OCC) has launched an investigation into ten leading banks that may have illegally foreclosed on the mortgages of almost 5,000 members of the U.S. military, some of them activated to duty in Iraq and Afghanistan.
The OCC regulates banks and will study the reviews of foreclosures by Bank of America, Wells Fargo, One West, HSBC, US Bancorp, MetLife, Sovereign and EverBank.
In 2003 Congress passed the Servicemembers Civil Relief Act (SCRA) to provide protections for servicemembers when their military service prevents them from meeting financial obligations taken on before their entry into active duty. Congressman Miller introduced The Servicemembers' Rights Protection Act in an effort to eliminate any ambiguity about the protections for servicemembers under the SCRA. The measure passed in the Veterans' Benefits Act of 2010.
Miller statement on OCC investigation:
"It is hard to see this as anything except a flagrant disregard for a law that has been on the books continuously since the First World War. The Servicemembers Civil Relief Act is very clear: if you're in harm's way in our nation's military, you can devote your whole energy to our nation's service without worrying what's happening in a courthouse back home. And if you have a claim against someone in our military, you can wait until they get home and can defend themselves.
The SCRA is not some obscure legal technicality that might just have escaped the attention of mortgage servicers. Those servicers are all affiliates of the biggest banks, but they're huge and specialized. Servicing mortgages is all they do, and they really don't have that many laws to keep up with. They have got to have known what the law required, and consciously decided that they could just ignore it, the same way they apparently decided it was okay to file false affidavits in legal proceedings.
The continued failure to pursue criminal charges in the face of flagrant violations of the criminal law is destroying Americans' faith in their government and democracy. In a democracy, no one is too big to prosecute."
Rep. Miller is hosting a roundtable, along with the North Carolina National Guard next Monday, December 5th at the North Carolina National Guard Headquarters to talk about financial protections and hardships for military men and women who have been deployed and their families.

Credit card frauds or, more likely, carders, hunt their victims not only near ATMs or in malls, but also in the web. Getting money from owners of bank cards is very easy, and not always these actions demand hacking and intellectual expenses. Internet users scammed by phishers give their money quite voluntarily after swallowing the bait of future freebie.
WorldWideWeb is a perfect environment for fraudsters. Major part of Internet users are people who not only cash cards in ATMs, but also use cashless settlements. Despite growing amount of online users, the level of knowledge about Internet banking and rules of elementary network safety still remains extremely low.
There is nothing difficult in avoiding cyber scams: do not tell information about your card to anyone and do not deal with unknown online stores. Also, you should have real address, website address and phone number of your bank and to use only this contact information.
It is important to know situation you should avoid in order to keep your money and sensitive information safe.

BUTNER, N.C. — Bernard L. Madoff said he never thought the collapse of his Ponzi scheme would cause the sort of destruction that has befallen his family.
In his first interview for publication since his arrest in December 2008, Mr. Madoff — looking noticeably thinner and rumpled in khaki prison garb — maintained that family members knew nothing about his crimes.
But during a private two-hour interview in a visitor room here on Tuesday, and in earlier e-mail exchanges, he asserted that unidentified banks and hedge funds were somehow “complicit” in his elaborate fraud, an about-face from earlier claims that he was the only person involved.
Mr. Madoff, who is serving a 150-year sentence, seemed frail and a bit agitated compared with the stoic calm he maintained before his incarceration in 2009, perhaps burdened by sadness over the suicide of his son Mark in December.
Besides that loss, his family also has faced stacks of lawsuits, the potential forfeiture of most of their assets, and relentless public suspicion and enmity that cut Mr. Madoff and his wife Ruth off from their children.
In many ways, however, Mr. Madoff seemed unchanged. He spoke with great intensity and fluency about his dealings with various banks and hedge funds, pointing to their “willful blindness” and their failure to examine discrepancies between his regulatory filings and other information available to them.
“They had to know,” Mr. Madoff said. “But the attitude was sort of, ‘If you’re doing something wrong, we don’t want to know.’ ”
While he acknowledged his guilt in the interview and said nothing could excuse his crimes, he focused his comments laserlike on the big investors and giant institutions he dealt with, not on the financial pain he caused thousands of his more modest investors. In an e-mail written on Jan. 13, he observed that many long-term clients made more in legitimate profits from him in the years before the fraud than they could have elsewhere. “I would have loved for them to not lose anything, but that was a risk they were well aware of by investing in the market,” he wrote.
Mr. Madoff said he was startled to learn about some of the e-mails and messages raising doubts about his results — now emerging in lawsuits — that bankers were passing around before his scheme collapsed.
“I’m reading more now about how suspicious they were than I ever realized at the time,” he said with a faint smile.
He did not assert that any specific bank or fund knew about or was an accomplice in his Ponzi scheme, which lasted at least 16 years and consumed about $20 billion in lost cash and almost $65 billion in paper wealth. Rather, he cited a failure to conduct normal scrutiny.
Both the interview and the e-mail correspondence were conducted as part of this reporter’s research for a coming book on the Madoff scandal, “The Wizard of Lies: Bernie Madoff and the Death of Trust,” for publication this spring by Times Books, a division of Henry Holt & Company.
In the interview and e-mails, he also claimed he had been helping the court-appointed trustee who is seeking to recover lost billions on behalf of his swindled clients. In e-mails, Mr. Madoff said repeatedly that he provided useful information to Irving H. Picard, the trustee trying to recover assets for the fraud victims. He met with Mr. Picard’s team over four days last summer, he said. The e-mails were written in December and January, but he only recently agreed that they could be made public.
In prison, Mr. Madoff’s access to the outside world is both limited and monitored. All visitors must be approved by prison authorities, who also screen his limited collect calls and his incoming and outgoing e-mails and letters, though interviews with lawyers like Mr. Picard and his colleagues are less restricted and can be conducted in private.
Asked about his cell, he described a room about 12 feet square with a big window looking out on the grounds; he said he had a roommate, the second since he arrived at the prison.
It was clear from the e-mails and interview here that Mr. Madoff closely followed news related to his case in December, the second anniversary of his arrest. He lashed out at what he called some of the “disgraceful” coverage of the suicide of his son Mark on Dec. 11.http://i.telegraph.co.uk/multimedia/archive/01822/madoff_1822378c.jpg

Answer: To get to The Chamber of Commerce.
Ever the literate historian, President Obama evoked the turbulent history of the mid-1930s in his speech February 7, 2011, as reported by Rachel Maddow, without touching FDR's confrontational speech "welcoming [the] hatred" of big business, calling them "the old enemies of peace" who now "consider the government of the United States a mere appendage to their own affairs."
Americans need President Obama to more than touch on it, or suggest that it might be true, that the plagues afflicting our nation during Roosevelt's presidency also do today, because those who encourage "business and financial monopoly, speculation, reckless banking, class antagonism, sectionalism and war profiteering" might require more than a small barnyard fowl to deliver the ultimatum, lest we as a nation never make it through this period of economic hardship to reach the other side.http://www.msnbc.msn.com/id/26315908/ns/msnbc_tv-rachel_maddow_show/ A new spin to an... more

Unless you’ve been living under a rock, no doubt you’ve heard Chelsea Clinton is tying the knot in a star-studded extravaganza at the Astor Estate in Rhinebeck, N.Y., today to her long-time beau Marc Mezvinsky. We know all about Clinton given she was the First Daughter and grew up in front of our eyes. But what about her fiance — what’s his story? Here are ten things to know about him:
1. He bought a $3.8 million, three-bedroom, 2,000 square-feet condo in New York City in 2008. So he’s not poor!
2. His parents, Edward Mezvinsky and Marjorie Margolies are divorced, and both of them are former members of the U.S. House of Representatives. His father was an Iowa congressman from 1973 to 1977; his mother a Pennsylvania rep from 1993 to 1995.
3. His father is a convicted felon, guilty of bank fraud, mail fraud and wire fraud, for which he served five years in prison and was released in 2008. His father duped friends, friends of friends, associates — and even his mother-in-law — in business-related scams.
4. His mother was once a well-known television reporter and is now a professor at the University of Pennsylvania.
5. He has 10 siblings — some half-siblings and some adopted siblings — unlike Chelsea, who is an only child.
6. He is a former investment banker with Goldman Sachs who now works for the hedge fund 3G Capital.
7. He attended Stanford University with Chelsea, where he focused on religious studies and philosophy while she majored in history.
8. He is Jewish, Chelsea is Methodist.
9. He threw Chelsea a 30th birthday party for 70 friends and family at Russian eatery Mari Vanna, one of their favorite restaurants. Guests dined on caviar, pierogies and vodka-infused cocktails.
10. He is reported to be book smart like Chelsea and a general all-around “mensch” according to the New York Post.Unless you’ve been living under a rock, no doubt you’ve heard Chelsea... more
