Bilderberg Corporate Media Mogul Wrote Obama Speech

The fact that Barack Obama is nothing more than a corporate sock puppet, a completely hollow vassal being used and manipulated by his globalist controllers to carry out their agenda, has once again been emphasized with the revelation that corporate media mogul and Bilderberg luminary Mortimer Zuckerman wrote one of Obama’s political speeches.

“Well I voted for Obama, I helped write one of his speeches,” Zuckerman told Fox News’ Neil Cavuto yesterday.

When Will We Take Responsibility for the Obama Presidency's Failings?

While it is uncomfortable and in some respects unreasonable to take to task the people who should be the biggest allies of social movements and, in fact, an ally of this writer (who considers himself to be progressive), the cycle with which progressives have the Left going in is incredibly destructive to the future of this country, the world and in fact the whole of humanity. The strategy and tactics of progressives increasingly look like the definition of insanity--doing the same thing again and again and expecting a different result.

The Guantanamo Files: The Story of the 774 Detainees in America’s Illegal Prison. In Andy Worthington’s The Guantanamo Files, the whole story of the Cuban camp emerges as a ghastly experiment in which the terrorist suspects became guinea pigs in a vast experiment of methods to crack the human soul. [This] is a powerful, essential and long-overdue piece of research, providing the first real Who’s Who of those held at the Cuban base. –Stephen Grey, New Statesman

Obama: 'I Have Met Israel and It Is "Us"'

Israeli Prime Minister Netanyahu set up another illegal Jewish settlement, this time on the White House lawn. And, it appears, President Obama has agreed to serve as its armed guard.

So complete was Obama’s identification with Israel yesterday that he actually referred to Israel as “us” before correcting himself:

“We strongly believe that, given its size, its history, the region that it’s in, and the threats that are leveled against us—against it, that Israel has unique security requirements.”

Pharmacists give themselves cancer from dispensing toxic chemotherapy chemicals

One of the side effects of chemotherapy is, ironically, cancer. The cancer doctors don't say much about it, but it's printed right on the chemo drug warning labels (in small print, of course). If you go into a cancer treatment clinic with one type of cancer, and you allow yourself to be injected with chemotherapy chemicals, you will often develop a second type of cancer as a result. Your oncologist will often claim to have successfully treated your first cancer even while you develop a second or third cancer directly caused by the chemo used to treat the original cancer.

There's nothing like cancer-causing chemotherapy to boost repeat business, huh?

Considering the Zionist regime’s unhinged mentality and notorious lack of restraint, it is obvious that Israel’s 200 (or is it 400?) nuclear warheads pose a massive threat not only to the Middle East but the rest of the world. Those warheads can be targeted on European cities and, some say, already are.

Another Test For President Obama Looms

President Obama gets tested almost daily. Most of these tests he fails so utterly and completely that even a grade of zero is too high of a score. Every now and again he does however barely pass some tests put before him but it is with what could best be deserving of a D and nothing better. Those are just the facts. It is hard for someone that does not understand the very basics of economics and believes in command and control economies to do any better because the answers that are given to the tests are always answers that have been proven time and again not to work.

Debunking Joe Farah's Jewish Fables

The Bible warns Christians to ignore "Jewish fables." (Titus 1:14) In 1948 Israel violently drove half of the Arab population from Palestine, stealing land on which they had lived and farmed for thousands of years. To distract the world from this outrage, Israel created an elaborate tapestry of fables deluding generations of evangelicals and much of the world.

I got back from Arizona a bit ago, visiting with friends, mostly Vietnam vets. From Veterans Today we had Jim Hanke, Jeff Gates, regular Army and me, as usual, the lone Marine and with our hosts, Navy Seal Hershel Davis. Years ago it would have been talk about POWs and politics. Now its down to motorcycles and single malt.

The sight of American citizens gathering to protest basketball player LeBron James’ decision to join Miami Heat last week, after Ohio Governor Ted Strickland joined celebrities to serenade James in a bizarre appeal video entitled “We are LeBron,” was a shocking reminder of how millions of Americans are more concerned about sports teams than the fact that their country is collapsing around them, and how potent a threat such wanton delusion is to the survival of freedom and prosperity in the United States.

Central banks start to abandon the U.S. dollar

A new report from Morgan Stanley analyst Emma Lawson confirms what many had suspected: the dollar is firmly on its way to losing its status as the reserve currency of the world. We already knew that central banks have preferred gold to dollars, and that they're even selling their gold for cash; now, according to Lawson's data, it seems that those central banks prefer almost anything to dollars.

Lawson found that central banks have dropped their allocation to U.S. dollars by nearly a full percentage point to 57.3% from 58.1%, and calls this "unexpected given the global environment." She adds, "over time we anticipate that reserve managers may reduce their holdings further."

Historian warns of sudden collapse of American ‘empire’

Harvard professor and prolific author Niall Ferguson opened the 2010 Aspen Ideas Festival Monday with a stark warning about the increasing prospect of the American “empire” suddenly collapsing due to the country’s rising debt level.

“I think this is a problem that is going to go live really soon,” Ferguson said. “In that sense, I mean within the next two years. Because the whole thing, fiscally and other ways, is very near the edge of chaos. And we’ve seen already in Greece what happens when the bond market loses faith in your fiscal policy.”

Double standard: Unlicensed bar music vs. P2P users

Gertner cites numerous cases where restaurants failed to pay up, used the music for commercial gain, and were then hauled to court. The Spring Mount Area Bavarian Resort in Pennsylvania, for instance, was sued over its lack of a performance license back in 2008. The cost of license would have been $3,725; when the resort was found liable, it had to pay damages of $6,750. Other awards in similar cases include $30,000, $34,500, and $16,000 judgments.

By contrast, juries decided that sharing 30 songs on the 'Net (with no pecuniary motivation) was worth $675,000 and that sharing 24 songs might be worth anywhere from $220,000 to $1.9 million (the two Jammie Thomas-Rasset trials in Minnesota).

Israel: a Failing Colonial Project?

Increasingly, despite its early military and political successes, Israel cannot for long endure as a colonial project. It must choose between wars – and destruction – or transition to a state for all its peoples.

In order to firmly secure its existence – as firmly as that is possible for any state – a settler state has to overcome three challenges. It has to solve the native problem; break away from its mother country; and gain the recognition of neighboring states and peoples. It can be shown that Israel has not met any of these conditions.

Al-Shabaab vows allegiance to Osama

Somalia's al-Shabaab group has publicly announced its loyalty to al-Qaeda leader, Osama bin Laden, in a video documentary released recently.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Somalia's al-Shabaab group appears to be another fake terrorist organization that exists only on video tapes shown on "Islamist" websites (As usual, registered through Domains By Proxy to conceal the real owners from the public) to justify more wars of aggression.

There are two problems with this video. The first is the obvious use of english titles (not sub-titles; designed right into the video) when the official story is that this video "Al-Shabaab fighters distributed the video in several Mogadishu neighborhoods, including in Suqaholaha, where a public screening was also organized following the Eid prayers", audiences where English would be a rarity. Second, of course, Osama has been dead since December 2001, a fact known quite well to all nations outside the US propaganda blanket.

So, we are being told that the Uganda bombing was carried out by TV Islamists swearing allegiance to a dead guy.

And they wonder why nobody believes this crap any more.

BP Whistleblower: 'What This Company Is Doing To This Country Right Now Is Just Wrong'

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Remember that all that BP has done to the United States was done with the permission of the US Federal Government. The MMS, which is supposed to keep an eye on the oil corporations in this country, was known to suffer from rampant corruption and incompetence when Obama took office. Obama had 400 days to get the Federal Agencies like MMS (and SEC) back to doing their jobs. Instead, we learned that MMS had come to believe they worked for the oil companies rather than for the American people, and in the months before the Deepwater Horizon explosion, occupied themselves with internet porn, drugs, and hookers provided by the very oil companies they were supposed to be keeping an eye on.

Yes, BP deserves everything it gets, but it should not stand alone on the gallows.

Slowly I turned…step by step…inch by inch…

Does anyone remember the famous black-and-white skit, performed by the Three Stooges, where a psychotic Moe goes berserk and attacks an innocent bystander who unwittingly utters the trigger words “Niagara Falls!”?

Today, we have a new cast of crazies doing the same routine. However, you can substitute the word “Iran!” in place of the words “Niagara Falls!” and still get the same reaction out of the likes of Joseph Lieberman (I – CT), John McCain (R – AZ) and Lindsey Graham (R – SC), AKA: The Three Stooges.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

You know, I seem to recognize those three men in that photograph and as I recall, those are UNITED STATES Senators, elected by and paid by the American people to take care of the UNITED STATES (which really needs some looking after right now).

Why Loan Mods & Short Sales are a Sucker's Game

Loan modification and short sales are a sucker’s game the banks play with you. They are designed to lure you into a false hope and squeeze you for every last dime the they can get out of you before they throw you into the street.

Here’s why.

First and primarily, you are negotiating with your servicing entity, not the true owner of the note. As such, the person you are talking to has no authority to do anything. They can’t do anything without permission from the note holder. And who is the note holder? No one knows and that is the entire basis of this website.

Local Currencies: Communities Printing Own Money To Keep Cash Flowing

Webmaster's Commentary: 

The original thirteen colonies printed their own currency, and it worked very well at empowering commerce and turning the young America into a powerful growing economy, free of the poverty and unemployment that even then crippled London. But the bankers of Europe, long used to private banks issuing the public currencies, were horrified by the American approach and saw it as a threat to their deeply cherished religious belief that the gods intended for he bankers to have all the wealth of the world. So, the Bank of England lobbied King George III to impose the Currency Act on the colonies, which forbade the colonies to use their own money and required them to borrow their lawful tender from the Bank of England, at interest. Within a few short years of the Currency Act, the colonies were gripped with the same poverty and unemployment as London. It was the rage from the effects of the currency act that fueled the drive towards revolution. But because the Congress in 1913 sold us back into the same style banking system, present-day schools seldom mention the currency act, preferring to lay the blame for the revolution on the Tea act and the Stamp Act, which were rather mild offenses by comparison.

Previous Presidents have resorted to their constitutional authority to issue government currency to challenge the primacy of the bank notes, Abraham Lincoln and John Kennedy, both of whom were killed and their currencies removed from circulation immediately following their deaths.

Crisis Awaits World’s Banks as Trillions Come Due

The sovereign debt crisis would seem to create worry enough for European banks, but there is another gathering threat that has not garnered as much notice: the trillions of dollars in short-term borrowing that institutions around the world must repay or roll over in the next two years.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

The problem is that a global crash is now inevitable. Because of the western style system of banking where all money is created as debt at interest, there simply is not enough money in the entire world to repay the banks. Even if governments confiscate all private property to sell to pay their bills, the money to BUY the confiscated property is also the product of a loan, which means the total debt still increases! All of this operates because people BELIEVE this is the way an economy is supposed to work. It's a religion, not science. People go along with the deliberate impoverishment because they believe this is the way it is supposed to be. But it is not,. There are other systems of national economy that work far better, including the one this nation was started with.

The time has come for us all to become banker heretics, to reveal the monsters that lurk underneath those fine clothes and to understand that the institutions in those garish buildings do not serve the people but enrich and empower the money-priesthood.

Taking online college courses is, to many, like eating at McDonald's: convenient, fast and filling. You may not get filet mignon, but afterward you're just as full.

Now the University of California wants to jump into online education for undergraduates, hoping to become the nation's first top-tier research institution to offer a bachelor's degree over the Internet comparable in quality to its prestigious campus program.

Israel is busy creating as many options as possible which can be used as a casus belli to begin the final confrontation with Iran with the endgame being the creation of a Greater Israel and the destruction of its enemies.

Because Israel has created many enemies, it has, in turn, created many options with which it can begin the final confrontation that will lead to the destruction of all its enemies. Israel has now adopted a tactic whereby it is attempting to create an environment via the use of provocation that will unite its enemies so that when the appropriate moment to start the final confrontation arrives it can then deal with all of its enemies at once with the help of the US and some of its other Western allies.

Former Contractor: BP Not Interested In Cleaning Up Oil Spill

As we have highlighted, as one of the founding members of the cap and trade lobby, BP stands to reap a financial bounty if the Obama administration succeeds in exploiting the worsening oil spill crisis to push through a carbon tax.

From a fishing village, to an Oil Town: Hell Has Come to South Louisiana

“Kill the Ocean, Save the Beaches,” a “Trade-Off” decision. Under what logic does this work? The Gulf is the Mother and the Estuaries are the nurseries. If the Mother dies, there will be no children to incubate.

The reality is the oil and chemical dispersants are entering our estuaries as we speak. The “Trade-Off” logic FAILED.

As I stated, I represent commercial shrimp fishermen. I have members, friends and family presently working to contain and clean-up the spill. They are relating to me BP’s total disregard for providing workers with proper Personal Protective Equipment (PPE).

Webmaster's Commentary: 

A corporation has no conscience.

This is why, when it comes to any oil drilling, the regulations and best professional practices must be observed by the corporations, and documented, by the regulatory agencies which oversee these industries.

Both BP and the US government failed catastrophically in these regards, and the people of the Gulf Coast are paying - and will continue to pay, some even with their very lives - for that failure.

'First Arab Leader to Affect Israeli Opinion in 30 Years'

Hezbollah Secretary General Sayyed Hasan Nasrallah was the first Arab leader in 30 years who, through his speeches, had the potential to affect the Israeli public.

The acknowledgment was made by a high-ranking Israeli intelligence officer, whose last name cannot be disclosed and who studied Sayyed Nasrallah's speeches during the Second Lebanon War, which began four years ago today, in the course of graduate studies at the University of Haifa.

Israeli forces confiscate Hebron land

Israeli soldiers issued orders barring residents of four small villages in the southern West Bank from their land, mayor Suleiman Al-Adam said Sunday.

The orders declared the agricultural land a closed military zone, and ordered farmers and others working on the land to evacuate. The soldiers also confiscated farming equipment, a statement by Beit Ula’s mayor said.

Obama's Collapse

The spectacle of an American sucking up to an Israeli Prime Minister is familiar but no less sickening every time it happens. Not since Eisenhower has an American president had the guts to stand up to Israel. With this single exception, all of them have fallen over in their haste to give Israel whatever it wants and to hold it responsible for nothing, not even the murder of its own citizens. The recent meeting between Barack Obama, effectively apologising because his middle name is Hussein, and Benyamin Netanyahu surely marks the lowest point in this sick relationship. Obama has now thrown in the towel. That is what the White House meeting represented. He talked of a peace process which does not exist and Israeli 'concessions' which have never been made.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Name me one other President in US history who, following an attack on Americans in international waters, sided with the attacking government against his own people.

Just one.

UPDATE: A reader just reminded me that there is indeed onje other President who, following an attack on Americans in international waters, sided with the attacking government against his own people. That traitor was Lyndon Johnson, who protected Israel following Israel's attack on the USS Liberty.

So let me change the question. Aside from Israel, is there any nation on Earth that can attack Americans and have the Predident of the United States side with the attacking government against his own people?

Anger in Costa Rica Over Deal to ‘Invite’ 46 US Warships

Costa Rica’s opposition is expressing increasing opposition to the government’s agreement to allow the United States to send a significant force, 7,000 US Marines and 46 warships, into the tiny Central American nation.

Ostensibly the extension of a long-standing agreement to cooperate in the US war on drugs, the new version actually explicitly allows the US to send warships instead of Coast Guard ships and allows the troops to “carry out the activities it deems necessary” in the nation, basically giving the US military a blank check for all operations in Costa Rica.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

This most likely has nothing to do with the US's wrong-headed and counterproductive "war on drugs", and everything to do with having a strike force "parked" in Central America, ready to wreak havoc on any Central or South American country which is not behaving in the way the US wishes.

July 12, Israel Condemns Itself to Irreversable Failure

Four years ago today, Israel waged war on Lebanon. It was not the kind of wars Israel had engaged in and triumphed in a just a couple of days.

Never had Israel's deterrent capability and reputation suffer such a blow. Never had Israel fought an Arab army for less than a week before overcoming it. But it was the first time in the Zionist entity’s history that it engaged in a 33-day war, the fiercest ever, and gets defeated. Israel is still concerned about Hezbollah's growing power as well as Sayyed Nasrallah's pledge to deal Israel the deadly blow in case it wages another war on Lebanon.

A Day in the Life Of Oil Spill Clean-Up Volunteer Barrett Johnson

If oil is being picked up or messed with, the individuals on the boat are required to wear a full body, hazwoper suit. The suit is to be duct-taped around the gloves and shoes to make sure that no oil comes in contact with your skin.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

A Hazwoper suit; what the oil cleanup people have to wear when there are no cameras around.

Pakistan as China's force-muliplier against India

Mr.Shiv Shankar Menon, India's National Security Adviser (NSA), visited China as the special envoy of Prime Minister Dr.Manmohan Singh from July 3 to 6,2010, for talks with Prime Minister Wen Jiabao and other Chinese leaders. President Asif Ali Zardari of Pakistan visited Beijing for four days from July 6. Thereafter he proceeded to Shanghai to visit the International Expo. He was to return to Pakistan from Shanghai.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Let me see if I get this right; in order to get what it wants, China is making deals, rather than waging wars.

In order to attempt to get what it wants (and failing spectacularly, as has been the case with Iraq and Afghanistan), the US has been - and continues in - waging wars rather than making deals.

What's wrong with this picture?!? Everything.

The Creativity Crisis

Kyung Hee Kim at the College of William & Mary discovered this in May, after analyzing almost 300,000 Torrance scores of children and adults. Kim found creativity scores had been steadily rising, just like IQ scores, until 1990. Since then, creativity scores have consistently inched downward. “It’s very clear, and the decrease is very significant,” Kim says. It is the scores of younger children in America—from kindergarten through sixth grade—for whom the decline is “most serious.”

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Maybe the emphasis on "repeat" rather than "think" in education as something to do with it.

Islamists suspected in deadly Ugandan World Cup bombings

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Folks, stop and think for a moment.

Why would Islamists do such a thing right now? Israel's reputation is shattered around the world because of CAST LEAD and the flotilla attack. The US Government has lost the support of most of the American people for all things Israel for failing to respond to the attack by Israel on Americans. Why would any real Islamists carry out an act that would restore Israel and the US to the hallowed place of victimhood?

They wouldn't. But Israel most certainly wood and I would like to remind everyone Uganda has been a hotbed of Mossad activity in Africa going back to when Idi Amin allowed Israeli intelligence to stage a fake hijacking at the Entebbe airport to blame on the Palestinians.

Roman Polanski avoids extradition to U.S.

Citing a possible flaw because U.S. authorities failed to turn over certain papers, Swiss authorities reject the extradition request that originated in Los Angeles. The Oscar-winning director is released from house arrest.

The Pope just asked for asylum in Switzerland!

'US attack on Iran a matter of time'

Former Malaysian Prime Minister Mahathir Mohamad says the US compelled the UN Security Council to impose sanctions against Iran in order to weaken the country and lay the ground for a military attack.

He went on to add that these sanctions were adopted despite the fact that Mohamed ElBaradei, the former head of the International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA), had repeatedly stated that there is no evidence of Iran pursuing military nuclear program.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

I frankly don't believe that the US and Israel are really going to wait for the sanctions to truly take effect.

Obama is facing a midterm election which could go very south for the Democrats, and desperately needs the "mother of all distractions from a lousy economy, two failing wars, and his abject failure to keep any of the campaign promises he made.

Likewise, Israel desperately needs a distraction from its deliberate failure to achieve any just peace with the Palestinians, and it's rapid annexation of Jerusalem and the West Bank.

My sense is that Obama will cynically time such an attack at the point where he believes it will best boost the Democrat's control of the House and Senate, taking the "way too soft on Iran" Republican accusations against him off the table as an election issue.

We may well have a whole new meaning to the phrase "October Surprise" in the works.

Romanian Recession Deepens on Cuts

Romania’s recession this year will be deeper than previously seen as the government cut spending and raised the value-added tax to curb a swelling budget deficit, Bank of America Merrill Lynch said.

Military police general guilty of drug smuggling

Italian news reports say that a military police general was convicted of smuggling drugs during the course of an investigation and sentenced to 14 years in prison.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

A military uniform is like a priest's robes of a congressman's suit. You are supposed to think it means the person wearing it is moral, but it doesn't really.

Discovery of second pipe in Deepwater Horizon riser stirs debate among experts

While Allen said he believes the second pipe fell from above, some experts have advanced another explanation. They believe poorly cemented casings -- tubes that are supposed to form solid walls down thousands of feet of the well bore -- may have been dislodged by the blast of natural gas that shot up out of the well and above the sea floor.

If that's what happened, the piece of pipe would have gone into the blowout preventer, the 450-ton tower of valves and pistons that sits on top of the well head and is supposed to shut off the well in an emergency. The Deepwater Horizon's blowout preventer failed to cut through the pipe that ran through it, and subsequent efforts to shut the so-called shear rams using remote-control submarine robots also failed.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

This second drill pipe was being discussed here on the blogs more than a week ago, but was only officially acknowledged Friday.

Governors: Obama's Immigration Suit Is 'Toxic'

Democratic governors expressed "grave" concerns to White House officials this weekend about the Obama administration's suit against Arizona's new immigration law, warning it could cost the party in crucial elections this fall, The New York Times reported late Sunday.

"Universally the governors are saying, 'We've got to talk about jobs, and all of a sudden we have immigration going on,'" Gov. Phil Bredesen of Tennessee, a Democrat, was quoted as saying. "It is such a toxic subject, such an important time for Democrats."

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Illegal immigration is a crime, according to US Federal statutes.

If the Federal government can and will do nothing to stem the tide of illegal immigration, state leaders have to come up to the plate and get it handled.

This lawsuit against the Arizona state law (with many states very readily are considering copying in their own states) is going to have horrendous repercussions for this Administration in November, unless the plan is to immediately offer clemency to every illegal alien by executive order, in the hopes that they will all register and vote as Democrats.

Eco tax slips in under radar

Checking her receipt as she left a downtown Canadian Tire, Chris Colorado noticed a new charge.

Her $1.99 bottle of dish soap was accompanied by a 13-cent “eco fee.”

The levy for thousands of new products, from pharmaceuticals to fire extinguishers, quietly came into effect July 1, the same day as the harmonized sales tax.

But unlike that tax, provincial agencies have done little to publicize the new fees, catching consumers like Colorado by surprise.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

"Green Economy" = "more taxes"

American Credit Scores Crash To New Lows

Webmaster's Commentary: 

America's manufacturing lost another place this year, down to fifth place where we used to be the leading manufacturer in the world. We are losing a place a year with no signs of a change or even that the government wants to change.

80,000+ still need to pay income taxes

The Indiana Department of Revenue is sending out more than 80,000 tax bills to those who still owe income tax money.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

What part of "We The People Don't Have It" are these bozos not getting? In 1913, the US Government sold us all into a financial system intentionally designed to draw all the wealth into the hands of the privately owned Federal Reserve. But nobody stopped to plan on what to do when the scheme actually succeeded, which is where we are today.

I wonder how many of those 80,000 people know how to fly a plane?

North Korea, US to Hold Warship Talks

Senior officers from the U.S.-led United Nations Command and North Korea are expected to meet Tuesday to discuss the recent sinking of a South Korean warship. The United Nations Command said Monday the meeting will be at the truce village of Panmunjom in the Demilitarized Zone.

North Korea had initially rejected the U.N. Command's request to discuss possible violations of the 1953 truce that ended the Korean War.However, Pyongyang changed its stance after Seoul rejected its proposal to send a military team to inspect the Cheonan, which sank after an explosion in March.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

This is a small, but positive, step toward ratcheting down tensions on the Korean peninsula.

Hopefully, these talks will lead to some kind of final status negotiations, and a genuine peace treaty to replace the 1953 armistice.

Will we lose mortgage deductions, Medicare?

The chairmen of President Obama's national debt commission painted a gloomy picture Sunday as the United States struggles to control its spending.

Republican Alan Simpson and Democrat Erskine Bowles told a meeting of the National Governors Association that everything needs to be considered — including curtailing popular tax breaks, such as the home-mortgage deduction...

Webmaster's Commentary: 

That is NOT 'cutting spending'; that is keeping spending and gouging the people.

History is against this approach. Every government in history that ran itself into this much debt and tried to deal with it by taxing the people into poverty collapsed.

In contrast, look at the Reagan tax cuts, which in allowing the economy the freedom to operate actually increased economic activity to such an extent that net tax revenues rose.

Growing Lobbying Battle Reported Over New START treaty

The Obama and Medvedev governments finalized the terms of the new START treaty, a key nuclear arms reduction pact, in late March, but the battle for the possible passage of the treaty through the US Senate is just now starting to pick up, with growing efforts to organize opposition to the reduction of America’s nuclear weapons arsenal.

The pact as finalized by the two governments would reduce both of their arsenals by roughly 30 percent, and leaves open the controversial US missile defense systems, allowing only non-binding signing statements from both sides on the matter.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

If passed by the Senate, such a treaty would go a long way toward reducing tensions between the US and Russia.

One has to wonder if those opposing this treaty have heavy investments in defense infrastructure companies; I would almost bet that might be the case.
