Rather than offer any general advice where each reader’s situation is different according to location; family, occupation and viewpoint, I would rather extend that timeless exhortation, “seek and ye shall find”.
The dissolution of outworn forms is necessary for what is coming. As much as many will look with horror on what is coming, I submit that there are some numbers of us who will look on it with hope and an encouraging industry, brimming with focused purpose. You can think of it as a death rattle or you can think of it as birth pangs. It’s going to look differently to different people depending on how they are looking at it and what their intentions are.
I’m reminded of the admonition seen in the side window of an automobile, “objects in the mirror are closer than they appear”. Everyone always imagines that there’s going to be some kind of a reasonable warning period …while having ignored the repeated and increasingly more obvious warnings all along. Take it for what it’s worth.

Barack Obama's multi-trillion dollar rescue plan for the banks shows all the signs of a carefully orchestrated third world coup where the country stays in debt and under the thumb of the global banking elite. If you're not outraged, your on life support : Allen L Roland
It was Amshall Rothschild who wrote ~ " Let me issue and control a nations money and I care not who writes the laws." and we are currently witnessing the truth of these words in the great 2009 Bank Rescue plan and coup.
The people no longer have a voice in this coup ~ the bankers are in control and they won't let go unless they're forced to.
Think of America as a third world country that is about to be imperialized and devoured by the global banking elite and you're close to the mark.

'Tooth Fairy Economics'
The primary fallacy of the tooth-fairy economics at the heart of the stimulus is the very idea that economic health is the product of government spending, which is financed either by borrowing (which leaves private businesses with a smaller share of the pool of savings for them to borrow from), printing money out of thin air, or direct seizure from the population. Whatever government spends the money on is necessarily arbitrary — government lacks the profit-and-loss feedback mechanism that keeps the private sector from squandering resources and employing factors of production in ways that do not cater to consumer wants. It can seize its resources from the people without their consent, and it makes no difference to government whether or not people actually want or wind up using the things it produces. Meanwhile, the economy loses the goods that would have been produced by the voluntary sector had the government not seized these resources for its own use.

The Perestroika Deception
Without going into background on Trotsky in this article and the overthrow of the Tzar of Russia by the International Bankers - just know this: The Soviet Union was established by the same people who own the Federal Reserve and virtually every other central bank in the World. The Soviet Union was created to be an antithesis to capitalism (thesis). Besides making tons of money over the eventual conflict these two opposing dialectics would have on each other, they are the pro-genitive elements that would eventually lead to the preconceived "New Order" for the world. A synthesis of Capitalism and Communism, the China model if you will.
If the singular source of funding is not enough of a factor to sway your cognitive reasoning, then you perhaps should look at the fact that the New World Order is set to be a global socialist totalitarian form of government.

A New Afghanistan Nightmare Commences
But it is unlikely that Holbrooke will absorb the magnitude of that historic lesson. Both he and the new US President Barack Obama are convinced that the missing component for winning the war in Afghanistan is a greater commitment, as in doubling the troops, increasing military spending, and, by way of winning hearts and minds, investing more in developing the country. That combination, the US administration believes, will eventually sway Afghans from supporting the Taliban, tribal militias, Pashtun nationalists and other groups. The latter is waging a guerilla struggle in various parts of the country, mostly in the south, to oust Karzai’s government and foreign occupation forces. While Kabul was considered an “oasis of calm” – by Jonathan Steele’s account – during the Soviet rule, it’s nowhere close to that depiction under the rule of the US and its NATO allies, who had plenty of time, eight long years, to assert their control, but failed.
District's Carlyle Senses a Profit in Toxic Bank Assets
What system is that, asshole?
Seeking to jump-start the economy, Treasury Secretary Timothy F. Geithner last week said he will seek private-sector help for the banks, offering loans at favorable rates and putting up government backing to reduce the risks to investors like Carlyle.
With $40 billion in cash on the sidelines waiting for the right play, Carlyle could find many profitable deals in the financial sector.
Two of the firm's co-founders, William E. Conway Jr. and David M. Rubenstein, have been saying for months that there is a role for private equity in the bank bailout and that there's money to be made.
"Private equity has a lot of experience buying assets at distressed prices, and we expect to see a lot of attractively priced assets," Rubenstein said in a September interview. "It's likely that private equity will be a big investor in this area. It's good that private-equity firms are in good shape and have the resources to buy some of these assets and help the system."
US War on Drugs brings you a possible civil war in Mexico
The story isn’t new in any significant way but I’ve noticed it is being brought up more and more. Either things are getting worse or the US government and the main stream media is looking for something to distract the people. A civil war in Mexico would be a great pro-police state propaganda opportunity. “We need to secure the border. We need (more) military personel inside the borders of the USA. We need to crack down on drug dealers and users. We need to get guns out of the hands of these people.”
Whatever form it takes… it will not be good. For the Mexican people or the USAs.

So I'm a Supremacist - Like I Care?
That’s right. Just because I’ve always liked the damned Supremes shouldn’t be such a big deal to anyone. And, being a White guy, that would make me a “White Supremacist,” right? But that has nothing to do with me being a low-down (not down-low, please), mean SOB. I already know that. Why should I try to hide it?
Those Supremes were really something — back when Negro music had real rhythms and understandable words. Now it’s all basically Jungle Tribal chanting not worth a flying flock. Tell me that’s not true? Diana Ross and the Supremes were indeed far superior then all the Africanus American hip-hop street crap out now. And if that makes me a White Supremacist, fine. So sue me.And I’m also a big “Nativist.” And why the hell not? The Native American peoples had a rich natural lore, living one with the environment — while engaging in spirited woodland gang warfare. I usually call them Indians, even though I know I’m not supposed to. Columbus, a Dead White Guy (even Whites in history get hell), thought he had reached the subcontinent of India and labeled them as such. You might find that one hard to believe, but back then no one had a Magellan GPS. Just another dead old White guy from Portugal.

The Citadel of Broken Dreams
Humanity has chosen to build its Citadel of Dreams upon the backs of those less fortunate. The weight of this impossible fantasy has turned the bulk of humanity into petrified stone, as symbolized above. The only thing left for us, is to listen to the dragon-fire of private conscience, so that we can rise again and throw off this tyrannical prison that has disguised itself as a dream of power and control.
This is what the ‘change’ was supposed to have been about in the last selection process – but because we failed to see that there were no real choices presented – all that we now have to work with is a new puppet in the Oval Office that is simply a continuation of the Cheney-Bush wars and crimes-unending.

The Next Big Thing: Barter
The signs are everywhere: Barter is going to be big.
- A helicopter-skiing company is offering barter in exchange for stock in tanking companies
- You can barter with a lawyer for legal services
- There's an informational webpage on how to barter for daycare services
- General contractors are offering their services for barter
- A professional writer will - for barter - write your love letters
Indeed, the Wall Street Journal just wrote an article entitled "Barter Fits the Bill for Strapped Firms", which states:
As small businesses find it impossible to borrow money and customers are slower to pay bills, the barter economy is becoming a crucial way for many companies to find the cash they need to keep operating.***
In 2008, about 250,000 North American companies conducted barter transactions worth more than $16 billion, according to the International Reciprocal Trade Association, a nonprofit based in Portsmouth, Va., that regulates and provides standards for modern trade and barter-service companies.
And given the worsening depression, and the prospect of a devalued dollar, barter might become essential in the future. For example, a respected economist is recommending buying gold and bottles of booze to barter once bailout-induced hyperinflation makes the dollar worthless.
_______________with dismay by the Egyptian government, which remembers him for having derailed the Oslo peace process in the late 1990s.
Netanyahu has vowed to abandon negotiations with the Palestinians, and says he will expand the program of Israeli colonization of the Palestinian West Bank.
Since even before Netanyahu's coronation was announced, the Israelis had been busy stealing more Palestinian land and planning more colonies on the purloined territory, Netanyahu will just be accelerating an already inexorable process.
Netanyahu is a train wreck for the Middle East. He is willing to ally with Avigdor Lieberman, an open racist who is gunning for the 20 percent of Israel's citizen population that is Palestinian. Netanyahu wants a war with Iran, and when the Israeli Right wants a war nowadays, they usually want our children to fight and die in it for them.
More immediately, all Americans will have reason to rue Netanyahu's return to power, since the American Israel Public Affairs Committee and other elements of the powerful Israel lobbies will pull Congress around to support Likudnik policies in the next few years.
And it won't even be allowed to protest where Netanyahu will take America.

Bailouts, Stimulus Packages or Redistribution of Assets?
On February 17, 1950, James Paul Warburg appeared before the U.S. Senate and declared: “We shall have World Government, whether or not we like it. The only question is whether world government will be achieved by conquest or consent.” To establish a world government, it is necessary to incrementally eradicate the constitution, bring the U.S. to her knees economically, and shackle the taxpayers to perpetual debt through bailouts and stimulus packages funded by printing billions of dollars of interest and debt-bearing Federal Reserve Notes to drastically devalue the currency in circulation thus impoverishing the taxpayers. The only benefactors are the extant banks, certain corporations and the individuals who concocted the financial disaster.
The Kabbalahistic-Occult Origins of the 'Sacred' Six Million Number
DECONSTRUCTING SIX MILLION HOLO-MYTHS: EXPLORING THE OCCULT ORIGINS OF CRUCIAL HOLOCAUST DOGMA By Dr. Harrell Rhome (excellent read)
Ben Weintraub’s 1995 book, Holocaust Dogma Of Judaism, fully explores and explains the Kabalistic gematria and occultism involved in the number. 6,000,000 is the number of perfect souls times ten, and ten is number of the Sephiroth, the divine emanations of G_d as seen in the Kabala.
Thus, it is numerologically predetermined, and through various dark conjuring rites, supernaturally imbued with power. As a result, it can never, ever be changed. This is critical, central to the hex. 6,000,000 is the number. There are never more deaths; there are never less. 6,000,000 is the number. It must be ritually repeated and publicly acknowledged.
As we already see, 6,000,000 never refers to actual deaths. It is a purely symbolic, esoteric, mystical number, symbolizing the perfect result, a perfect creation, a magical Great Work in progress. Perhaps this is a part of tikkun olam, the Kabalistic-Talmudic “repairing” or “perfecting” of the world, done of course by the self-chosen ones.
