Vanity Fair profiles The eXile: "Gutsy...visceral...serious journalism...abusive, defamatory...poignant...paranoid...and right!"

This is fun viewing: watch Rep. Alan Grayson (D-FL) douse the Fed’s general counsel’s ass with Crisco then throw him into the frying pan and fire up the stove. M’m-m’m! Them’s some good grillin’s! Once in awhile, you can see how democracy can be used as a weapon, and Grayson has been getting better at holding the swine accountable, joining other heroes like Rep. Marcy Kaptur (D-OH) and Ron Paul (R-TX). I include Ron Paul only because he at least goes for the throat against the interests gang-raping this country, which makes him a convenient ally at this point, because if Paul actually ran this place like the libertarian paradise he intends, we’d all be pining for the salad days of 2008-9.

It’s great to be right.

It’s Sunday, a good day to gloat about how I was right and everyone else who gets paid serious money was a fucking idiot. The Financial Crisis that everyone claims they couldn’t possibly see coming? I saw it coming, two years before the collapse–all the way from Moscow. And so I just want to tell all of you lying brainwashed dickheads out there: I toldja so! Yup, that’s right: in 2006, two years before the financial collapse, I wrote a big piece in The eXile headlined “Why You’re Fucked: FINANCIAL CRISIS II: ANOTHER SEQUEL” predicting that the out-of-control credit bubble would explode and tank the financial system. I’m excerpting it below so that you can all worship me,. I believe the word is “prescience”? (more…)

Here’s some blowback anyone could have seen coming from 10,000 miles away–or however far Iraq and Georgia are from the USA: those crazy LRAD sound-beam weapons which were used to devastating effect by Georgia’s authoritarian leader to crush massive pro-democracy demonstrations two years ago, have finally made their Big Debut here in America, melting the eardrums of G20 demonstrators in Pittsburgh. Click here to see a video of the LRADs used on protestors in Pittsburgh. (more…)

Sibel Edmonds1

This is the biggest shocker political story of the year that no one else seems to want to touch, but you should read it: Sibel Edmonds, the FBI whistleblower who was fired after she raised concerns about how deeply foreign interests (Turkish and Israeli primarily) had inserted themselves inside the FBI, manipulating and controlling American politics and the media. There’s a stunner of an interview with her in the current issue of the American Conservative, which our own Gary Brecher once wrote for, in which Edmonds names the Congressmen who were being bribed and blackmailed to serve Turkish interests. The ACLU called her “the most gagged person in the history of the United States of America” while numerous bigwigs from both sides of the aisle found her allegations both credible and explosive.

There was a leak yesterday to Bloomberg that the Fed is making plans to “drain” $1 trillion from the US economy. Because supposedly our economy is overheating with too much money—not that anyone you or I know has seen a penny of it. It doesn’t seem to make any sense to suck money out of a cash-strapped country when the economy’s in ruins: unemployment is reaching Third World levels, foreclosures are hitting new record highs, and lending is still contracting at an alarming rate not seen since, yep, the Great Depression. So why would the Fed talk about pulling $1 trillion out of the economy, as if that’s the medicine it needs?

It is all about taking care the already-mega-rich Wall Street bankers and foreign investors who want to protect the value of all the money they plundered from America. They want to ensure that the trillions they were handed by Paulson and Bernanke and Summers are still worth the same trillions next year…and to do that, they’re going to apply a simple law of supply and demand: drain out $1 trillion from us, and the value of their trillions holds its value.

After a brief lull, workplace shootings are back with today’s murder rampage near Fresno, California. Apparently the killer, identified as James Bascadi Badasci was recently laid off after 10 years from the company he attacked this morning—Fresno Equipment Company, a dealer for John Deere equipment. Early reports say that Badasci showed up at 9:00am with a shotgun, killed a person whom he allegedly “targeted,” then fired several more shots into the equipment before eventually turning the gun on himself. SWAT teams arrived after the damage was done–they always have an uncanny way of showing up after the killing’s over and the murderer’s already “comma-self”‘d. (more…)

I was half-asleep the other day, watching this video interview with the late E. Howard Hunt– the Zelig of CIA spooks–talking about the JFK assassination when he mentioned that one of the main conspirators–CIA agent William Harvey–had a slogan on his Langley office wall that infuriated Bobby Kennedy: “The tree of liberty must be nourished by the blood of tyrants.” Even by the early-60s standards, Harvey was a rightwing nutjob with close ties to the anti-Castro mob and the far-rightwing agency elements who gathered around Miami and New Orleans. So when you see this slogan again becoming popular at radical anti-Obama rallies today, to which some are showing up armed, it makes you wonder…
