www.theinternationalforecast... Train Wreck of the Week By Bob Chapman March 11 2006 We are n the verge of the greatest inflationary binge in history. Our perceived wealth is the manifestation of one of the greatest misallocation of created assets and as such its existence will have profound ramifications. Our society, world society, has inflated expectations based upon financial leverage and useless credit. Our asset inflation and bubbles have created unsound distortions driven by (...)

Students and Teachers Unite for Campus Walkout in Protest of War

NEW BRITAIN — About a hundred Central Connecticut State University students participated in a walkout Thursday, in protest of federal cuts in student aid and inflation of the military budget. The "M9 Walkout," organized by the Progressive Student Alliance, a student activist group, took place outside the student center one month after Congress passed a budget cutting $12 billion from student loan programs and the same day Secretary of State Condoleezza Rice pressed for a $91 billion (...)

Defense Budget Preparing for Nuclear Global War
By : Diana Lee - Wednesday March 1, 2006
1 comment
What is obvious in the fiscal 2007 defense budget are the drastic reductions or eliminations of 141 domestic programs in favor of nearly seven percent increase to $439 billion in defense spending. What is not obvious are the omission of the total cost of the ongoing wars in Iraq and Afghanistan, the enormous potential profits to defense contractors and corporations, and the hidden reasons behind escalating research and development of “smart bombs” and nuclear weapons. Although (...)

USA Deeper in Debt: $8.2 Trillion, $27,000 for every man, woman and child
By : Orlando Sentinel - Thursday February 23, 2006
1 comment
For the fourth time since 2002, the federal government has maxed out its credit limit. Rather than just raise it and submerge American taxpayers deeper in debt, Congress and President George W. Bush need to stem the tide of red ink in Washington, D.C. Because the federal government continues to spend hundreds of billions of dollars more than it takes in, the U.S. Treasury has hit the $8.2 trillion national-debt limit. Treasury Secretary John Snow has urged Congress to raise the limit as (...)

What happens when a nation keeps printing paper money without a backing in gold, silver or platinum reserves?

DEATH TO COUNTERFEITERS By Peter Fredson February 16, 2006 Once I owned a small, gray, coarse paper bill, issued in Revolutionary days of the U.S. It was crudely hand-etched and printed on a small hand press. On it were the words: DEATH TO COUNTERFEITERS. Counterfeiters would have had an easy time printing any denomination of bill for the technical skill was minimal. The temptation to print money in those days of poverty and tumult must have been enormous, hence the penalty of Death. (...)

Government by Giveaway
By : Michael Parenti - Tuesday January 31, 2006
By Michael Parenti In December 2005, the reactionaries who are running the government and ruining the country decided to cut about $42 billion from the human services budget over the next few years. Most of the cuts will come out of the hides of the very poorest among us. The victims include persons afflicted with disabling diseases who already have trouble trying to live on a monthly federal pittance. But there is another side to this Scrooge story.

Corporate Wealth Share Rises for Top-Income Americans

By DAVID CAY JOHNSTON Published: January 29, 2006 New government data indicate that the concentration of corporate wealth among the highest-income Americans grew significantly in 2003, as a trend that began in 1991 accelerated in the first year that President Bush and Congress cut taxes on capital.

America Is Being Plundered by the Global Elite

by The August Review America is For Sale. The sale is "under the table" in that the American people don’t have a clue that it’s being slowly sold out from under their feet, one piece at a time. The sale is deceptive because as the red ink grows larger and larger, we are told by these same globalists that trade and budget deficits don’t really matter that much. The sale is dishonest because it was planned from the beginning by elitist groups like the Trilateral (...)

The far-right in Ukraine are acting as the vanguard of a protest movement that is being reported as pro-democracy. The situation on the ground is not as simple as pro-EU and trade versus pro-Putin and Russian hegemony in the region.

I’VE DECIDED TO "WASTE" MY VOTE

In a 2004 episode of Comedy Central’s animated series South Park, an election was held to determine whether the new mascot for the town’s elementary school would be a “giant douche” or a “turd sandwich.” Confronted with these two equally unpalatable choices, one child, Stan Marsh, refused to vote at all, which resulted in his ostracization and subsequent banishment from the town. Although this satirical vulgarity was intended as a commentary on the two (...)

PART I PART II PART III If there is one major inconsistency in life, it is that young people who know little more than family, friends and school are suddenly, at the age of eighteen, supposed to decide what they want to do for the rest of their lives. Unfortunately, because of their limited life experiences, the illusions they have about certain occupations do not always comport to the realities. I discovered this the first time I went to college.

If there is one universal question that haunts all human beings at some point in their lives, it is, “Why do we die?” Death, after all, is the great illogic. It ultimately claims all, the rich and the poor, the mighty and the small, the good and the evil. Death also has the capability to make most human pursuits—such as the quest for wealth, fame and power—vacuous and fleeting. Given this reality, I have often wondered why so many people are still willing to (...)

How much corruption can a “democracy” endure before it ceases to be a democracy? If five venal, mendacious, duplicitous, amoral, biased and (dare I say it) satanic Supreme Court “justices”—John Roberts, Samuel Alito, Antonin Scalia, Clarence Thomas and Anthony Kennedy—have their way, America will soon find out.

At first glance, it is almost unfathomable that anyone with a modicum of intelligence would have voted to retain Scott Walker as Wisconsin’s governor.

A question I’ve frequently been asked since I began writing for Pravda.Ru in 2003 is, “Why did you become disillusioned with the practice of law?” This question is understandable, particularly since, in most people’s minds, being an attorney is synonymous with wealth and political power. I’ve always been reluctant to answer this question for fear it will discourage conscientious and ethical people from pursuing careers in the legal profession—a (...)
