adults died from hunger in the last week of October.
Pierre Antoine Diléné, a doctor working in Belle-Anse, confirmed

America the Illiterate
By Chris Hedges
We live in two Americas. One America, now the minority, functions in a
print-based, literate world. It can cope with complexity and has the intellectual
tools to separate illusion from truth. The other America, which constitutes
the majority, exists in a non-reality-based belief system. This America,
dependent on skillfully manipulated images for information, has severed
itself from the literate, print-based culture. It cannot differentiate between
lies and truth. It is informed by simplistic, childish narratives and clichés.

This Is Not A Normal Recession
Moving on to Plan B
By Mike Whitney

narrowed down to two words; "structured finance".

How Bush Tried to Bring Down Evo Morales
Orchestrating a Civic Coup in Bolivia
Observers of U.S.-Latin American policy tend to view the
crisis in U.S.-Bolivian relations as due to a policy of neglect
and ineptness toward Latin America because of U.S.
involvement in the wars in the Middle East and Central Asia.
In fact, the Bolivia coup attempt was a conscious policy
rooted in U.S. hostility toward Morales, his political party
the Movement Towards Socialism (MAS) and the social
movements that are aligned with him.

This Is Change?
20 Hawks, Clintonites and Neocons to Watch for in

By Jeremy Scahill
Obama has a momentous opportunity to do what he repeatedly
promised over the course of his campaign: bring actual change.
But the more we learn about who Obama is considering for top
positions in his administration, the more his inner circle resembles
a staff reunion of President Bill Clinton's White House.

This Is Our Brave New World?
Confront the Delusions
By Jim Kirwan
In an age of images and entertainment, in an age of instant emotional
gratification, we do not seek or want honesty. We ask to be indulged
and entertained by clichés, stereotypes and mythic narratives that
tell us we can be whomever we want to be, that we live in the
greatest country on Earth, that we are endowed with superior
moral and physical qualities and that our glorious future
is preordained.

James Shelby Downard’s ''Mystical War”
by Adam Gorightly
Mind Control, occult scenarios, conspiracy and ritual crimes…
In "James Shelby Downard’s Mystical War," author Adam Gorightly
chronicles the famed conspiracy researcher’s life long battles against
Masonic Sorcery as an investigator and exposer of the Science of
Symbolism, Onomatology (Science of Names) and Mystical Toponomy
(Science of Places). "James Shelby Downard’s Mystical War" picks up
where Downard left off and follows the bread crumbs down a rabbit
hole where only the brave (or crazy!) dare follow.

in scope. It is the only one in which the profits are reckoned in dollars
and the losses in lives." So stated Major General Smedley D. Butler,

Bush's Last 100 Days the Ones to Watch
By Jesse Jackson
Bush and Vice President Cheney represent a failed conservative
era -- and they know it. As the administration moves into its last
100 days, there seems to be a flurry of activity: regulations to
forestall Obama's new era of accountability; a flood of contracts
to reward friends and lock in commitments; a Wall Street bailout
that is pumping money out the door.

"Here is what we do know. One, real estate values have tanked.
Two, more than 4 million American homeowners with a mortgage
were at least one payment behind on their loans at the end of June,
and 500,000 had started the foreclosure process. That is probably a
historically high 1 in 10 “problem loan” rate. Over the past 10 weeks,
Fannie Mae says it has received more than 40,000 defaulting loans
and stopped 80% of them from going into foreclosure. And, three,
20% of U.S. mortgage borrowers owe more on their loans during the
third quarter than their house was worth as foreclosures depressed
prices and the economy weakened."
The above paragraph is a brief extract from the following extensive
analysis of mortgage problems, government guarantees and their pitfalls.
