Donald Trump Made Up Stuff 71 Times In An Hour
HP | Dana Liebelson | 03/30/16

Critics of Donald Trump’s presidential campaign often complain about the way the media has reported on his candidacy. It is not just the incessant coverage that riles them. It’s the perceived lack of fact-checking.

Trump is known for making outlandish and dubious claims with little connection to the truth. The press corps, these critics argue, allows him to float along in a perpetual state of unreality.

The truth is, Trump is routinely fact-checked. It’s just that he makes so many statements in such a rapid and continuous fashion that it becomes virtually impossible to keep up.

On Wednesday, The Huffington Post assigned five and a half reporters to look into a roughly 12,000-word transcript of Trump’s town hall event on CNN the night before. It took us hours, but in all, we found 71 separate instances in which Trump made a claim that was either inaccurate, misleading or deeply questionable. That’s basically one falsehood every 169 words (counting the words uttered by moderator Anderson Cooper), or 1.16 falsehoods every minute (the town hall lasted an hour, including commercial breaks). ...

The Battle To Keep The Establishment In Power
ZeroHedge | author | 03/31/16

It looks as if it will be much more difficult for Trump to nail down enough delegates to beat the Republicans at their own corrupt rules. We are likely heading toward a rigged convention and this is playing into the hands of the precise thing the Republicans better not do. They are sacrificing the nation for personal perks. It is not that Trump is the savior, hardly, but at least he would be a check against these people. ... Read more

Impatient Banks: A Real Red Flag For The Oil Patch
ZeroHedge | author | 03/31/16

Lenders to the oil and gas industry have been extraordinarily lenient amid the worst downturn in decades, allowing indebted companies to survive a little while longer in hopes of a rebound in oil prices. But the screws are set to tighten just a bit more as the periodic credit redetermination period finishes up.

Banks reassess their credit lines to oil and gas firms twice a year, once in the spring and once in the fall. While the lending arrangements vary from bank to bank and from borrower to borrower, lenders largely punted on both redetermination periods last year, providing a grace period for drillers to wait out the bust in prices. But oil prices have not rebounded much since the original crash in late 2014. ... Read more

*There’s A Huge New Corporate Corruption Scandal. Here’s Why Everyone Should Care.
HP | Nick Baumann | 03/30/16

Most people remember that the Arab Spring started with a guy who lit himself on fire. What they don’t remember is that he did it as a protest against corruption: Mohamed Bouazizi, a Tunisian fruit vendor, decided he’d been shaken down by police officers one too many times.

Bouazizi’s death set in motion the biggest political upheaval of the 21st century. The Arab Spring was “mostly about corruption,” said FBI Special Agent George McEachern, one of the leading investigators of global graft. “Corruption leads to failed states, which leads to terrorism.

That’s what makes the corruption revealed in a new trove of confidential emails from a mysterious Monaco-based company called Unaoil so significant. On Wednesday, The Huffington Post and its Australian partner, Fairfax Media -- led by reporters Richard Baker and Nick McKenzie -- published the results of a months-long investigation of Unaoil, an obscure firm that helps big multinational corporations win contracts in areas of the world where corruption is common.

Hundreds of major international corporations -- including Halliburton, its former subsidiary KBR, Rolls-Royce and Samsung -- counted on Unaoil to secure lucrative contracts in Iraq, Kazakhstan, Libya, Syria, Tunisia, and other countries in Africa, the Middle East, and the former Soviet Union, tens of thousands of internal emails and documents reveal. ...

Trump, Sanders, & The Deep State Darling
ZeroHedge | author | 03/29/16

Everyone who isn't willfully blind knows that the Corporate (mainstream) Media doesn't give the same coverage to Bernie Sanders as it does to his opponent, Hillary Clinton. Bernie's rallies go unmentioned, his victories are given short shrift and his personal narrative--practically ideal for media glorification--is mentioned in passing, if at all.

A media professional clued me into why the Corporate Media hates Bernie and will move Heaven and Earth to defeat him: Sanders is the only candidate who is seriously promoting campaign finance reform.

When a Super-PAC raises $100 million for Hillary, Jeb, et al., where does 90% of that money go? To the Corporate Media. Corporate Media gorges on political media buys every two years, and increasingly depends on this feasting on Super-PAC money for its outsized profits. ... Read more

Top German Journalist Admits Mainstream Media Is Completely Fake: "We All Lie For The CIA"
ZeroHedge | author | 03/29/16

"I've been a journalist for about 25 years, and I was educated to lie, to betray, and not to tell the truth to the public." Ever since Operation Mockingbird, a CIA-based initiative to control mainstream media, more and more people are expressing their concern that what we see in the media is nothing short of brainwashing. Leading German journalist and editor Udo Ulfkotte went on public television stating that he was forced to publish the works of intelligence agents under his own name, also adding that noncompliance with these orders would result in him losing his job. ...

Runaway Inequality: An Activist's Guide to Economic Justice by Les Leopold

Runaway inequality is now America's most critical economic fact of life. In 1970, the ratio of pay between the top 100 CEOs and the average worker was 45 to 1. Today it is a shocking 829 to one! During that time a new economic philosophy set in that cut taxes, deregulated finance, and trimmed social spending. Those policies set in motion a process that greatly expanded the power of financial interests to accelerate inequality. But how exactly does that happen?

Using easy-to-understand charts and graphs, Runaway Inequality explains the process by which corporation after corporation falls victim to systematic wealth extraction by banks, private equity firms, and hedge funds. It reveals how financial strip-mining puts enormous downward pressure on jobs, wages, benefits, and working conditions, while boosting the incomes of financial elites.

But Runaway Inequality does more than make sense of our economic plight. It also shows why virtually all the key issues that we face?from climate change to the exploding prison population?are intimately connected to rising economic inequality.

Most importantly, Runaway Inequality calls upon us to build a common movement to tackle the sources of increasing income and wealth inequality. As the author makes clear, the problem will not cure itself. It will take enormous energy and dedication to bring economic justice and fairness back to American society.

The book is divided into four parts:

Part I: What is the fundamental cause of runaway economic inequality? What has made our economy less fair and left most of us less secure?

Part II: How does the United States really compare with other major developed countries? How do we stack up on quality of life, health, and well-being?

Part III: What does economic inequality have to do with so many of the critical issues we face, including taxes, debt, education, criminal justice, racism, climate change, foreign trade, and war?

Part IV: What concrete steps can we take to begin building a fair and just society?

John Kerry: Republican Primary Race Is 'An Embarrassment'
HP | Paige Lavender | 03/28/16

Secretary of State John Kerry said the Republican presidential primary is "an embarrassment." During an appearance on CBS's "Face the Nation," Kerry said foreign leaders are "shocked" by the rhetoric used in the race, particularly anti-Muslim statements.

"They don't know where it's taking the United States of America," Kerry said. "It upsets people's sense of equilibrium about our steadiness, about our reliability, and to some degree I must say to you, some of the questions, the way they're posed to me, it's clear to me that what's happening is an embarrassment to our country." ...

Pope's Easter Message: Use 'Weapons Of Love' To Combat Evil

Highlighting Western Victims While Ignoring Victims of Western Violence
TheIntercept | Glenn Greenwald | 03/25/16

FOR DAYS NOW, American cable news has broadcast non-stop coverage of the horrific attack in Brussels. Viewers repeatedly heard from witnesses and from the wounded. Video was shown in a loop of the terror and panic when the bombs exploded. Networks dispatched their TV stars to Brussels, where they remain. NPR profiled the lives of several of the airport victims. CNN showed a moving interview with a wounded, bandage-wrapped Mormon American teenager speaking from his Belgium hospital bed.

All of that is how it should be: That's news. And it's important to understand on a visceral level the human cost from this type of violence. But that's also the same reason it's so unjustifiable, and so propagandistic, that this type of coverage is accorded only to Western victims of violence, but almost never to the non-Western victims of the West's own violence. ...

World economic debt trap is controlled for corporatism advancement that is easy money and consolidation empowers corporate planers with incentives which subvert market mechanisms of supply demand balance. Todays world economy is a supply side driven system of extraction regardless of cost externalization such as liar loans, appraisal fraud, golden parachutes and bail outs. Expansion of corporatism worldwide cartels transnationally is advanced by austerity for masses and easy money for corporatism consolidation to buy out governments for replacement by corporate management banker cartels. USA was VERY aware of sub-prime and federal reserve was prepared for banking induced crunch when banks tightened money supply to consumers but increased easy money for corporate welfare. These markets are not representative of free market systems. Life support they are on requires power shifts from consumers to corporate supply side rigging by use of excessively large financial sector whose primary purpose today is consolidation of resources, wealth and power to oligarchs incorporated. oligarchs incorporated cartels are not democratic players on democratic field of play. Oligarchs incorporated is fascism control for extraction for progeny of corporate oligarchs.

Robert Reich: Why Both Trump's and Cruz's Tax Plans Would Be Huge Windfalls for the Rich
AlterNet | Robert Reich | 03/22/16

5 things you need to know about these reverse Robin Hood proposals.

The tax cuts for the rich proposed by the two leading Republican candidates for the presidency -- Donald Trump and Ted Cruz -- are larger, as a proportion of the government budget and the total economy, than any tax cuts ever before proposed in history.

Trump and Cruz pretend to be opposed to the Republican establishment, but when it comes to taxes they're seeking exactly what that Republican establishment wants. ...

  1. Trump's proposed cut would reduce the top tax rate from 39.6 percent to 25 percent -- creating a giant windfall for the wealthy (at a time when the wealthy have a larger portion of the nation's wealth than any time since 1918).
  2. The Cruz plan would abandon our century-old progressive income tax (whose rates increase as taxpayers' incomes increase) and instead tax the amount people spend in a year and exclude income from investments.
  3. Cruz also proposes a 10 percent flat tax. A flat tax lowers tax rates on the rich and increases taxes for lower-income workers.
  4. The Republican plans also repeal estate and gift taxes -- now paid almost entirely by the very wealthy who make big gifts to their heirs and leave them big estates.
  5. These plans would cut federal revenues by as much as $12 trillion over the decade -- but neither Trump nor Cruz has said what they'll do to fill this hole.

When Does The U.S. Stock Bubble Burst: The Best Hedge Fund Of 2016 Has A Surprising Answer
ZeroHedge | author | 03/25/16

"One of the curious things over the last few years, is that despite the last two bubbles in markets being mainly US centred (dot com bubble and US housing) it has been the Japan based Nikkei that has peaked 3 to 6 months before the S&P 500. The Nikkei peaked in March of 2000, while the S&P 500 rolled lower in August of that year. The Nikkei peaked in June of 2007, while the S&P 500 peaked in October of that year." ...

... If you want to know if the US stock bubble is about to burst, just keep an eye on the hilarious if ricketty debacle that Japan's "stock market" have become, where only the daily interventions of the BOJ keep the whole house of cards from crashing down and wiping out Japan's economy from the face of the earth. Because if the Nikkei is unable to "keep it up" despite a historic amount of debt monetizations, ETF and REIT purchases, and negtive rates by the BOJ, the S&P 500 will follow shortly. Read more

On September 11, 2001, 19 terrorists attacked the Unites States. They hijacked four airplanes in mid-flight. The terrorists flew two of the planes into two skyscrapers at the World Trade Center in New York City. The impact caused the buildings to catch fire and collapse. Another plane destroyed part of the Pentagon (the U.S. military headquarters) in Arlington, Virginia. The fourth plane crashed in Shanksville, Pennsylvania. Officials believe that the terrorists on that plane intended to destroy either the White House or the U.S. Capitol. Passengers on the plane fought the terrorists and prevented them from reaching their goal. In all, nearly 3,000 people were killed in the 9/11 attacks.

Wall Street is an eight-block-long street running roughly northwest to southeast from Broadway to South Street, at the East River, in the Financial District of Lower Manhattan in New York City. Over time, the term has become a metonym for the financial markets of the United States as a whole, the American financial services industry (even if financial firms are not physically located there), or New York-based financial interests.

The Vietnam War

Ken Burns and Lynn Novick's ten-part, 18-hour documentary series, THE VIETNAM WAR, tells the epic story of one of the most consequential, divisive, and controversial events in American history as it has never before been told on film. Visceral and immersive, the series explores the human dimensions of the war through revelatory testimony of nearly 80 witnesses from all sides--Americans who fought in the war and others who opposed it, as well as combatants and civilians from North and South Vietnam. Ten years in the making, the series includes rarely seen and digitally re-mastered archival footage from sources around the globe, photographs taken by some of the most celebrated photojournalists of the 20th Century, historic television broadcasts, evocative home movies, and secret audio recordings from inside the Kennedy, Johnson, and Nixon administrations.

China Valley of Tunnels

A report written by a Georgetown University team led by Phillip Karber conducted a three-year study to map out Chinas complex tunnel system, which stretches 5,000 km (3,000 miles).
