Starting 2016 With A Bang: Challenger Reports Highest January Layoffs Since 2009





While we await the heavily massaged Initial Claims report from the DOL, moments ago we got the report of actual job layoff announcements tracked by Challenger Gray, and it was quite grim: in the first month of 2016, US-based employers reported 75,114 planned job cuts. January represents the highest monthly tally since July 2015, when cuts reached 105,696. Most troubling, it was the largest January total since 241,749 job cuts were announced during the first month of 2009.

The Democracy Of The Billionaires





Speaking of the need for citizen participation in our national politics in his final State of the Union address, President Obama said, “Our brand of democracy is hard.” A more accurate characterization might have been: “Our brand of democracy is cold hard cash.” Cash, mountains of it, is increasingly the necessary tool for presidential candidates. Several Powerball jackpots could already be fueled from the billions of dollars in contributions in play in election 2016. When considering the present donation season, however, the devil lies in the details, which is why the details follow.

The Islamization Of America In 2015, Part 2





More than half (51%) of Muslims in America believe they should "have the choice of being governed according to Sharia."

Another Town Just Got Caught Covering Up Lead Contamination In Its Water Supply





Residents in Sebring, Ohio, can commiserate with those in Flint, Michigan, considering their water supply has also been contaminated with lead that “exceeds the action level,” according to the state’s EPA. Like Flint, the case of Sebring - involving some 8,100 water customers in Sebring, Beloit, Maple Ridge, and parts of Smith Township - already has the appearance of criminal negligence and a possible cover-up.

Politicians Admit The System Is Corrupt; Controlled By Special Interests





Politicians are all corrupt; those few who do initially join to "help the people" either soon get corrupted, or are mulched out of the system. None are more corrupt than those who are at the very top of American politics; the so-called "survivors." Some politicians made the mistake of admitting their own wrong-doings, and others have "whistleblow"-ed on the corrupt nature of American politics.

Banksters Win Again - "Audit the Fed" Bill Fails In The Senate





Rand Paul’s signature “Audit the Fed” legislation failed to garner the 60 votes needed in the Senate to move the measure forward. Of course, this is merely the latest in a never-ending series of banker victories, and a truly devastating blow against liberty, free markets, transparency and any hope for government by the people and for the people. Ensuring that light is never shined on the Fed’s shady, corrupt and unaccountable bailout activities has always been a key goal of the American oligarchy, and they succeeded once again.

How The Feds Got All That Western Land (and Why It's A Problem)





Government owned and subsidized lands in the American West have been a source of conflict among competing interest groups since the 19th century. Since the very beginning of white settlement, lands have been used by the federal government as part of a political scheme to subsidize and reward certain groups while punishing others. The current standoff between ranchers and federal officials in Oregon is simply the latest chapter in a long contentious and sometimes bloody history of groups competing for control over government-owned lands in the West, and by ensuring that lands continue to be allocated by political means rather than through the market, government ownership of lands simply perpetuates conflict in the region.
