  1. Awsome tune by Muse:

    http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=TAP5Sr3R638

    And the lyrics:

    The paranoia is in bloom, the PR

    The transmissions will resume

    They\'ll try to push drugs

    Keep us all dumbed down and hope that

    We will never see the truth around

    Another promise, another scene, another

    A package not to keep us trapped in greed

    With all the green belts wrapped around our minds

    And endless red tape to keep the truth confined

    They will not force us

    They will stop degrading us

    They will not control us

    We will be victorious

    Interchanging mind control

    Come let the revolution take it\'s toll if you could

    Flick the switch and open your third eye, you\'d see that

    We should never be afraid to die

    Rise up and take the power back, it\'s time that

    The fat cats had a heart attack, you know that

    Their time is coming to an end

    We have to unify and watch our flag ascend

    They will not force us

    They will stop degrading us

    They will not control us

    We will be victorious

    They will not force us

    They will stop degrading us

    They will not control us

    We will be victorious

    make of this what you will....... :unsure:

    BF

    Good stuff. I do like a bit of Muse.

  2. Bite the Hand

    Lyrics:

    They ball -gagged Lady Justice

    And blindfolded her so she can't see

    The Erosion of the People's Trust

    Of what will come to be an FDIC Assisted Suicide

    The depression of a depression

    Worldwide suicide for the economy

    Caused by the dialectic chaos when the

    Mob on Wall Street took "We the People" for a ride

    When It's Dog eat Dog you are what you eat

    Just like the mad dog , that bites the hand that feeds

    Like the mad dog , that bites the hand that feeds

    Just like the mad dog , that bites the hand that feeds

    They took everything and anything

    as long as it once belonged to me

    The rats got all the money, the roaches

    Licked the cupboards clean of TV Dinners and beer

    This never ending nightmare

    Of the dreams I'll never, ever get to see

    And just one silver-bullet to your head

    It will set me free from all the life I wasted trusting you

    When It's Dog eat Dog you are what you eat

    Just like the mad dog , that bites the hand that feeds

    Like the mad dog , that bites the hand that feeds

    When It's Dog eat Dog you are what you eat

    Like the mad dog , that bites the hand that feeds

    Just like the mad dog , that bites the hand that feeds

    This song was released yesterday on the new Megadeth album.

  3. Under the proposed regulation, the White House would give the central bank, the Federal Reserve, new powers over huge financial firms and the ability to seize banks whose collapse could threaten Goldman Sachs

    (corrected)

    .....and hand over their assets for pence in the pound to the Giant Squid.

    It really is that simple RK. Well summed up. ;)

    Lehman was sacrificed to save GS via AIG.

    GS didn't fund Obama and his campaign just to get f*ck all in return.

  4. 'I Expect a Currency Crisis or Semi-Crisis': Jim Rogers

    Published: Monday, 14 Sep 2009 | 7:18 AM ET Text Size By: Antonia Oprita

    The worst of the economic crisis is not over and a currency crisis can happen this year or the next year, because the problem of too much debt in the system has not been solved, legendary investor Jim Rogers told CNBC Monday.

    The current recovery is just a consequence of the fact that consumption fell so dramatically in 2008 and people have to buy things they need in 2009, Rogers told "Worldwide Exchange."

    "How can the solution for debt and consumption be more debt and more consumption? How can that be the solution to our problems?," he said.

    "I would expect there to be a currency crisis or a semi-crisis this fall or next year. It's crony capitalism, Bernanke and Greenspan have brought crony capitalism to America … but that's not going to solve the world's problems," Rogers added.

    There are still "gigantic amounts of horrible, horrible debt that hasn't been dealt with" in Central Europe, while hopes that China will pull the world out of recession are overblown, according to Rogers.

    "China saved up a lot of money for a rainy day, it's raining and it's spending it," he said. "But China cannot pull out America or India or Europe from all this. Their economy is a 10th of the US. Hallelujah, let them do good things but they're not going to save the world."

    The Federal Reserve has tripled its balance sheet and the US government's debt skyrocketed, which may cause currency problems next year, while protectionist tendencies have already started, he warned.

    On Monday, China has requested World Trade Organization talks over US-imposed duties on Chinese-made tires, which China has branded protectionist.

    "We're going to have some serious problems in currency markets, we're going to have serious problems in the world markets if we see protectionism rising and rising again," he said.

  5. US Economy Facing 'Death by a Thousand Cuts': Roubini

    Published: Monday, 14 Sep 2009 | 8:50 AM ET Text Size By: CNBC.com

    The US economy faces a difficult time ahead as consumers stop spending and the fallout escalates from the collapse of the commercial real estate market, economist Nouriel Roubini told CNBC.

    Repeating his prediction that the economy faces a threat of a "double-dip" recession and at best a slow-growth U-shaped recovery, Roubini said in a live interview that more banks will fail and residential real estate prices have more room to decline.

    Additionally, non-government bonds will face pressure, the securitization market is all but dead, the credit markets are still frozen and consumers will continue to save more rather than spend and boost growth.

    "It's going to be death by a thousand cuts," said Roubini, chairman of RGE Monitor and economics professor at New York University's Stern School of Business. "The financial system is severely damaged, and it's not just the banks."

    Roubini predicted more than 1,000 financial institutions could fail before all is said and done.

    At the same time, he said housing prices are likely to fall another 12 percent in the next year—40 percent overall since the market began its steep decline—and about half of all homeowners will owe more on their mortgages than their houses are worth.

    "The gap between supply and demand is so huge we could stop producing new homes for a year to get rid of all the inventory," he said. "This price adjustment, in my opinion, is going to continue for another year."

    In addition to assessing the current problems, Roubini reflected on the year since Lehman Brothers collapsed and its effects on the financial markets. Roubini was among the most prescient economists in predicting the failure of the financial system, though he has said that aggressive intervention has prevented the worst-case scenario from happening.

    Many in his field have blamed regulators for allowing Lehman to collapse, but Roubini said the system would have failed regardless of what happened to the Wall Street titan.

    "We already were in the middle of a very severe crisis. Saying that bailout out Lehman, everything would have been OK, is nonsense," he said. "Lehman was a symptom of the crisis, not the cause of the crisis."

    He warned, though, that regulators are repeating some of the same mistakes made during the financial crisis, this time with the commercial real estate market. Allowing forbearance in the deeply troubled sector will mask underlying problems that will come back and bite the economy, he said.

    Still, he said Federal Reserve Chairman Ben Bernanke, whom Roubini had criticized harshly when the financial crisis began, took strong measures to avoid a complete collapse of the system.

    "I criticized Bernanke for many of the mistakes he made before the crisis," Roubini said. "But I give him credit for his actions that led to the avoidance of another Great Depression."

  6. She's played it very well tbh.

    Must have known this was on the cards a long time ago - and how much worse it's going to get, so to stay on the TV without looking like a loony to most folks while still being accurate is a good trick.

    Agreed. She's one of the only economic analysts worth listening to at the moment. Sticking to her guns, unlike a few others we could mention.

  7. Home Prices Could Fall by Another 25%: Whitney

    Published: Thursday, 10 Sep 2009 | 8:29 AM ET Text Size By: CNBC.com

    Home prices in the US could fall by another 25 percent because of high unemployment and another leg down will come for stocks, banking analyst Meredith Whitney told CNBC Thursday.

    "No bank underwrote a loan with 10 percent unemployment on the horizon," Whitney said. "I think there is no doubt that home prices will go down dramatically from here, it's just a question of when."

    Local governments and states are chronically under-funded and "most states are under water," adding to the problem of low private consumption, she said.

    "If you look at the drivers for unemployment I don't see that reversing very soon," Whitney said.

    If consumers were to decide to spend, "that would be a game-changer," but it would be an unnatural thing to do in a recession, she said.

    "A lot of themes are constant, which is the US consumer and the small business doesn't have any credit, credit is still contracting," Whitney said.

    Consumer debt and consumer credit have dropped according to the latest figures which also show that people have been spending more from their debit cards than from their credit cards.

    "Obviously that doesn't bode well for spending," Whitney said.

    She said another leg down was coming for stocks but that Goldman Sachs [GS 172.476 2.206 (+1.3%) ] still has "gas in the tank" and she kept her 'buy' on its stock.

    "Goldman is taking a lot of the place that Lehman left," she said.

    But banks are not going to see their earnings rise too much from now on, she warned.

    "Banks are taking advantage of what the government is doing by artificially inflating asset prices so they can ride a steep yield curve and they're going to have a third quarter that reflects that," Whitney said.

    Their shares are unlikely to be uplifted by these results as it happened in mid-July, because then they were under-valued, she added.

    The stock market doesn't seem to like her latest prediction. ;)

  8. Icke, Jones, Cooper, Watt and Schneider are all frauds or NWO shills.

    They are planted to discredit alternative theories that are not supported by the mainstream beliefs by appearing to be total nutters.

    Icke believes in lizzard / human hybrids.

    Jones is an agressive pro gun red neck who called chomsky a NWO shill

    Cooper is an ex-navy intelligence nutter who thinks the driver, williams greer, shot kenedy

    Watt sits in fields on a deck chair talking about chemtrails with really crap audio

    Schneider is completely insane and on some kind of ego trip claiming to have killed two aliens in a gun battle with special forces.

    They all go that little bit too far, so that the 10% of insanity means everyone dismisses the 90% of stuff they say that makes sense. Schnieder is insane and 100% of his stuff is complete fantasy.

    I'm not sure Alex Jones even had much to do with this. Charlie Sheen seems to be doing it all and using Jones to spread the word.

  9. I tuned in there on the links on this page:

    http://www.infowars.com/listen.html

    He is about to interview Charlie Sheen now.

    This is what seems to be happening:

    Sheen has formally requested a 20min interview with Obama and the questions he will be asking about 911 have been posted on the Alex Jones site ahead of time to make sure the media can't twist the actual interview (if it happens) afterwards.

  10. Obama 'Green Jobs' Adviser Van Jones Resigns Amid Controversy

    Van Jones, an administration official specializing in environmentally friendly "green jobs," has been linked to efforts suggesting a government role in the Sept. 11 terror attacks and to derogatory comments about Republicans.

    WASHINGTON - President Barack Obama's adviser Van Jones has resigned amid controversy over past inflammatory statements, the White House said early Sunday.

    Jones, an administration official specializing in environmentally friendly "green jobs" with the White House Council on Environmental Quality was linked to efforts suggesting a government role in the 2001 terror attacks and to derogatory comments about Republicans.

    The resignation comes as Obama is working to regain his footing in the contentious health care debate.

    Jones issued an apology on Thursday for his past statements. When asked the next day whether Obama still had confidence in him, White House press secretary Robert Gibbs said only that Jones "continues to work in the administration."

    The matter surfaced after news reports of a derogatory comment Jones made in the past about Republicans, and separately, of Jones' name appearing on a petition connected to the events surrounding the Sept. 11, 2001, terror attacks. That 2004 petition had asked for congressional hearings and other investigations into whether high-level government officials had allowed the attacks to occur.

    "On the eve of historic fights for health care and clean energy, opponents of reform have mounted a vicious smear campaign against me," Jones said in his resignation statement. "They are using lies and distortions to distract and divide."

    Jones said he has been "inundated with calls from across the political spectrum urging me to stay and fight."

    But he said he cannot in good conscience ask his colleagues to spend time and energy defending or explaining his past.

    Jones flatly said in an earlier statement that he did not agree with the petition's stand on the 9/11 attacks and that "it certainly does not reflect my views, now or ever."

    As for his other comments he made before joining Obama's team, Jones said, "If I have offended anyone with statements I made in the past, I apologize."

    Despite his apologies, Republicans demanded Jones quit.

    Rep. Mike Pence of Indiana said in a statement, "His extremist views and coarse rhetoric have no place in this administration or the public debate." Missouri Sen. Christopher Bonds said Congress should investigate Jones's fitness the job.

    FOX News' Glenn Beck repeatedly denounced Jones after a group the adviser co-founded, ColorofChange.org, led an advertising boycott against Beck's show to protest his claim that Obama is a racist.

    James Rucker, the organization's executive director, has said Jones had nothing to do with ColorofChange.org now and didn't even know about the campaign before it started.

    Jones, well-known in the environmental movement, was a civil-rights activist in California before shifting his attention to environmental and energy issues. He is known for laying out a broad vision of a green economy.

    Nancy Sutley chair of the council, said in a statement released early Sunday that she accepts Jones resignation and thanked him for his service.

    "Over the last six months, he had been a strong voice for creating jobs that improve energy efficiency and utilize renewable resources," she said. "We appreciate his hard work and wish him the best moving forward."

  11. Picking up on the "sell some hope" line was nicely done, and quite revealing of how the CNBC guy views his role- not as a reporter but as a propagandist.

    He more or less made Denniger's argument right there for him- you cannot trust these people to deliver unmanipulated information.

    Indeed. Kneale is so fu*kin' stupid that he didn't even seem to realise he was handing the win to KD on a plate. :rolleyes:
