India: SP demands immediate recall of US Ambassador

Taking strong umbrage at American envoy David Mulford's statement that India must vote against Iran on the nuclear issue, the Samajwadi Party today demanded his immediate recall by the Bush administration, saying the remarks were ''a slight on India's sovereignty and unacceptable to the people''.

Petrodollar Warfare: Oil, Iraq and the Future of the Dollar

Iran's plan to launch an energy trading exchange supports its desire to establish a geopolitical bloc with a Eurasian epicentre, anchored by Iran, China, Russia, and Europe, preferably including India (which is why America is bribing India with nuclear technology).

Pentagon Can Now Fund Foreign Militaries

Congress has granted unusual authority for the Pentagon to spend as much as $200 million of its own budget to aid foreign militaries, a break with the traditional practice of channeling foreign military assistance through the State Department.

Their power derives from us yet we are subjugated by the authority we have given them

By Troubled Neighbor

Unaccountable, our public servants have acquired the license of angels and conduct themselves like gods to be obeyed. They have supplanted justice and liberty with standards of their own making.

Beating Around the Bush By the Bourse

By Ingmar Lee

Only the uninformed believed Bush when he said it was WMD's that made him attack, invade, occupy and massacre Iraq. Most of us thought it was to steal Iraq's oil, but we were only partly right. What totally terrorized the tyrranical Texan tycoon was when Saddam played the oil bourse card in November, 2000. When Saddam started selling Iraqi oil in euro's, he jeopardized the U.S. dollar's hegemony as the world's supreme foreign exchange transaction currency. - The oil grab is a sideshow. The main feature is the oil bourse.

U.S. IN TECHNICAL DEFAULT

by Dr. M (AKA Dr. Chris Martenson)
January 27, 2006

In a shocking development, the Treasury Department website is openly stating that as of January 24, 2006 our national debt stood at $8,185.3 billion and on January 26th at $8,190.5 billion.

//www.publicdebt.treas.gov/opd/opdpenny.htm

Yet the US national debt 'ceiling', the maximum amount of debt the US government may hold at any one time, stands at $8,184 billion – a full $5.5 billion less. Although called upon by John Snow, Congress has not yet passed an expansion of the debt ceiling and so the US government is now operating in technical default.

You may recall that when last the debt ceiling was approached in the months surrounding the 2004 elections, the Treasury department furiously employed every accounting trick in the book (and then some) to avoid breaching the limit. They even went so far as to take the unprecedented step of borrowing $14 billion from the Federal Financing Bank to cover up the shortfall.

But they never breached the ceiling.

On January 24th they breached it brazenly and openly and with nary an accompanying explanation. Neither have any lawmakers have broached this indelicate subject.

I suppose we could write this off as merely an unsurprising development from a government that no longer bothers to even appear to be adhering to rules, laws and procedures, let alone actually doing so.

But the silence is all the more troubling because there is an unprecedented level of government borrowing on the books for 1Q06 with next 2 weeks (Feb 1st to Feb 9th) an especially busy period of time. An ambitious ~$70-$80b in Treasury paper will hit the market.

The federal government does not have the legal authority to borrow above the statutory debt limit, which raises the prospect of emergency congressional action to avoid a full-fledged default.

Congress will probably attach a rider to a "must-pass" defense appropriation bill and ironically title it "The Fiscal Responsibility Amendment of 2006". And if they do, $50 says they do it very late on Friday night.

Since the debt ceiling has been raised 50 times over the past 40 years, hoping for some rational debate on the matter would be an extravagant indulgence. Time spent wishing pigs could fly would offer a far better potential return.

Another odd facet of this story is the deafening silence from the financial press (and I use that term loosely) regarding this matter. Leaving aside the issue of a technical default, one wonders why questions aren't being asked about the rate of debt accumulation and whether it's sustainable.

The last debt-ceiling adjustment was $800 billion and was passed in November 2004. Now, on January 24th 2006, it is entirely gone. $800 billion in only 16 months for an average of $50B a month.

Factoring out the plundering of excess social security contributions, the US government borrowed $52B in 3Q05, $96B in 4Q05 and expects to borrow $171B in 1Q06. A trend nearly as mind-boggling as the soon to be discontinued M3 series.

Why do I even bother to pen such distressing factoids?

Because in all my time studying economics I have determined only one thing; there's no free lunch. Pay now or pay later but pay we will.

Or, more accurately, we hope that our kids will, and not stiff us for the bill. But if they did, who could blame them?

I, for one, would not be shocked.

For our next MIRACLE in the stop Alito movement

Once again we achieved our overnight objective from the local district phone action. There are widespread reports of senators' phones ringing off the hook and fax machines running out of paper coast to coast. And YOU did it. We are witnessing the greatest outpouring of public opinion ever, being described as "astonishing," in support of the people's Alito filibuster. The hunger for policy change grows daily, and people want to know what more we can do. There is TONS more we can do, and these are our next moves:

It is critical that we open up multiple collateral fronts, while at the same time repeating the cultural phenomenon witnessed in the last 24 hours on an even LARGER scale. There are two NEW action pages below which will send your personal messages in real time to your senators' internet gateways. We will still keep the phone and fax pressure on, but with these gateways we can deliver an UNLIMITED number of messages! This will multiply your chances to voice your opposition and layer those messages. Please submit both these new action pages and forward this alert to everyone else you know.

FIRST COLLATERAL ACTION: Anticipate and beat back any nuclear option move

//www.millionphonemarch.com/nuke_option.php

In the back of the minds of our senators, the essential cowardice we must confront is their fear of exercising power generally, and in particular of the Republican so-called nuclear option. They are not afraid of losing a filibuster vote as much as they are afraid of WINNING, for only then would the threat of a nuclear option come into play. With the exercise of power comes responsibility, and above all that is what they must now do, TAKE RESPONSIBILITY.

In fact the nuclear option is a win-win situation for us. If the Republicans abuse the Senate rules and have enough sanity to fall short, we win outright. If they are misfortunate enough to break the rules, they will be punished by their constituents for not playing fair AND will have no way to stop US from undoing all their damage when we take back the Congress in 2006. Either way we demonstrate that Democrats WILL fight ferociously for what they believe in, ensuring prospects for success in 2006.

The action page above is a voting page which poses the question if it would be fair for the Republicans to pull some nuclear stunt. We need to tell BOTH Democrats AND Republicans how angry we would be at such a move. This will embolden our own and give enormous pause to the other side. It must be done for us to win.

SECOND COLLATERAL ACTION: Pressure Harry Reid to Either Lead or Step Aside

//www.millionphonemarch.com/reid.php

There have been multiple calls in the progressive internet for Harry Reid to step down, notably from Buzzflash.com. The issue is not whether he should remain a senator from Nevada. Indeed his declared INDIVIDUAL support for the filibuster earns him that. But the role of a leader is not to take his hand off the rudder and walk away. And it is not acceptable for a coach to declare to the media and his team that they are going to lose in the middle of the third quarter.

Even if there were a couple senators who HAD to oppose the filibuster, and that is increasingly doubtful in the face of the public outpouring now taking place, what a LEADER would do is designate a couple byes and still lock in at least 41 certain votes. He would twist arms or promise favors to arrive at that result. If Reid can't or won't do the job he MUST be replaced with someone who can. But there may be reasonable differences of opinion, so again, we have made the above action page a voting page where you can vote either way, and add whatever personal comments you like.

The important thing is for Reid to feel the heat and the pressure to perform, and the question we pose simply asks if he is providing enough leadership. The side effect of pressuring him is that OTHER senators will better internalize that their own jobs are on the line if they fail the people this time, in particular from primary challenges. The bottom line is we need to have someone, hopefully Reid himself, to step up and take charge, whoever has the leadership to do so.

KEEP UP WITH THE LOCAL PHONES AND FAXES

The fact that senators are already aware of full answering machines and fax machines out of paper means perhaps that some might be cleared overnight, so that you can get through there again too. So once again, here are the LOCAL phone and fax numbers for your own senators for the state of the original recipient of this message.

If this message is forwarded to you and you are in another state, you can instantly look up your own senators' numbers with the one click function at

//www.nocrony.com

Our message to our senators is simple. Your vote to support a filibuster will NOT cost you an election. Any other vote absolutely will. Respect the will of the people and you will have the most mobilized and committed activists in the country to contribute and work tirelessly for your behalf. Oppose the will of the people and we will raise challengers to you in your own primaries and contribute every dime we have to them to defeat you, and failing that we will look to find ANY other candidate in the general election to support. Listen to the people or your political career will be the REAL done deal. EMPHASIZE that you are a constituent (IF you are) and provide contact information to prove it.

If you are looking to do even MORE, here is the master list of ALL phone and fax numbers for ALL senators, with annotations about which are the most critical swing votes.

//www.nocrony.com/master_senate_phones.txt

If you are calling senators in other states, be candid that you are not a direct constituent. But the message is the same, if you stand with the party on this one we will go out of our way to help you. Otherwise we will flood your state with money and labor to support ANY candidate who runs against you until the end of time.

It is wonderful if you want to make massive numbers of phone calls yourself. But you can IMMENSELY amplify your effectiveness by FIRST forwarding this message to absolutely every other person you know so that they can be similarly mobilized. It is not just the sheer volume of messages, even more critical is the number of DIFFERENT people speaking out at once.

Let us be able to look back and say we did everything we could have done to win this victory in spite of the corrupt media pundits who are working overtime to tell us what we cannot do. We are proving them wrong day by day.

Please take action NOW, so we can win all victories that are supposed to be ours, and forward this message to everyone else you know.
