02 16 13 Superpower Death Watch





While Left And Right Fight, Power Wins

© Paul Craig Roberts



How does the progressive Obama Regime differ from the tax-cut, deregulation Bush/Cheney Regime?  Both are complicit in the *maximization* of executive branch power and in the *minimization* of citizens’ civil liberties and, thus, of the people’s power.

Did the progressive Obama reverse the right-wing Bush’s destruction of habeas corpus and due process?  No.  Obama further *minimized* the people’s power.  Bush could throw us in prison for life without proof of cause.  Obama can execute us without proof of cause.  They do this in the name of protecting us from terrorism, but not from *their* terrorism.

If the power that has been established over the American people is to be shattered, it will come from outside.  The Federal Reserve’s continuing monetization of the enormous debt that Washington is generating can destroy the dollar’s exchange value, sending up interest rates, collapsing the bond, stock, and real estate markets, and sinking the economy into deep depression at a time in history when Americans have exhausted their savings and are deeply in debt with high levels of joblessness and homelessness.

The rise in import prices from a drop in the dollar’s exchange value would make survival an issue for a large percentage of the population.

Overnight the US could transition from superpower to third world penitent begging for a rescue program.

[Putin’s] Meeting with G20 Finance Ministers and Central Bank Governors



I will express my own position on a key matter.  I agree with our German colleague, who stated that what is happening now is a problem of trust.

But this [trust] problem stems from the systemic failures in the previous regulatory system.  And investors will never be satisfied with any additional money injections or more printing presses, if they do not see that the conditions that would prevent any new crisis developments from happening have been created.

And naturally, first and foremost, we need to think about how to do this.  At the same time, in making decisions, national leaders – prime ministers, presidents – always have to take into account two aspects: the necessity and the ability; the necessity to make particular decisions and their ability to implement these decisions based on political, social, and other factors.

Thus, I call on you to not just think about what absolutely needs to be done from a professional point of view, but also consider what can be implemented given the conditions of our life today: in each of our nations and in the global economy overall.

JFK secretly freed rapists, drug dealers and Mafia hitmen to kill Castro and curb threat of Communism, claims explosive new book



‘For over 50 years, the CIA and American [World Tyrant] government has been systematically releasing dangerous criminals back into society to work for them on secret missions overseas,’ said [William] Deane, whose new book Smooth Criminal details the life of alleged CIA operative and ‘one-man American [World Tyrant ubermensch] crime wave’ Dave Riley.

‘The programme started during the Kennedy administration at the start of the 1960s as a clandestine means of dealing with the Communist threat of Castro, and was given the seal of approval by JFK –who was still smarting following the political embarrassment of the failed Bay of Pigs Invasion of Cuba in 1961.

‘Criminals were ideal operatives as they were ruthless and willing to risk their lives during missions rather than be sent back to prison.  They also couldn’t be officially connected with the CIA so it didn’t matter if they were captured –there was no risk of America’s shady policies being exposed.

‘Riley was a typical recruit.  Highly intelligent, ambitious and *with no morals*.  The CIA sent him on many missions abroad, including to Cuba to assassinate Castro,’ added Deane.
