FED BAILOUT/TAKEOVER, MORE OF THE SAME! THE WORKING PEOPLE NEED REAL, SOCIALIST

Doug Cupertino |
The Federal Reserve System bail-out of AIG means more of the same: more waste and diversion of working people’s tax money to speculation and Wall Street profiteering rather than to education, health-care, pension, civilian R & D, affordable public housing, public social insurance and safety nets.

The Fed is part and parcel of Wall Street. It is part of the old boy’s high-finance club. It means there is no real change in the substance of the management and control of AIG with the Fed takeover. It merely means keeping AIG geared to maximizing speculative profits rather than maximizing working people’s welfare. Handing over management and control to the Fed means more of the same. No real change.

It is continuing theft and fraudulent use of the working people’s tax money and the corporate profits produced by the working people. It is robbery of their income and productivity to be invested in corporate gambling rather than to funding that will concretely benefit rather than fleece the working people.

Wall Street and the Wall Street-driven media dish out the line that American capitalism is so healthy because the markets, that is, the private investors will work out its problems of plunging sales, bad debt, bankruptcies, lay-offs, skyrocketing gas prices, without the help of government and taxpayers money. Now, that lie is unraveling bit by bit. First, Bear Sterns. Then, Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac. Now, AIG. And Greenspan says, more is to come.

More of the same. A Wall Street bankruptcy passes on control to another Wall Street outfit, the Fed. Speculative profiteering first and foremost under the old Wall Street to new speculative profiteering of working people’s tax money and profits under a new Wall Street Fed management. More of the same!

What we need is working people’s tax money and profits to working people’s control and governance. Time to do away with Wall Street gambling and profiteering on working people’s money! Time to do away with Wall Street’s more of the same! Time to put working people’s welfare, education, health-care, pension, civilian R & D, safety nets and housing first and above all! Time to expose the Wall Street AIG fraud for what it really is! Time for real, working-class socialism!


The Federal Reserve System bail-out of AIG means more of the same: more waste and diversion of working people’s tax money to speculation and Wall Street profiteering and away from working people’s welfare. Fed takeover of AIG means passing on a Wall Street bankruptcy to a Wall Street outfit, more of the same. Time for putting working people’s welfare first, and real, socialist change.

STOP THE PUBLIC BAILOUT OF A.I.G.! TIME FOR REAL CHANGE!

Doug Cupertino | The U.S. government is poised to bail out AIG with a conservatorship or new bridge loans. It hopes to help AIG’S top shareholders, directors and managers shirk their accountability for their failures and punish instead the taxpayer public. Stop the public bailout of private wealth! Fight for a real public take-over of AIG! Time for real, socialist change! more...  0 Comments

The Ground Noise and the Static: A Chronicle of the Battle of Saint Paul

Mike GW & James Kautz | Inside, John McCain pleads with the crowd: “Please, please, my friends, my dear friends, please, please don't be diverted by the ground noise and the static.”

Coup happening NOW in Bolivia !!!!

Jorge Martin | The situation in Bolivia remains one of confrontation between the oligarchy, backed by U.S. imperialism on the one side, and the masses who support the Evo Morales government on the other. Tuesday, September 9th, marked a high point in the reactionary offensive of the oligarchy in Santa Cruz and the other departments in the East of the country, where they control the regional prefects. (see Renewed offensive of the oligarchy – time to strike back!).

On Thursday, September 11, 9 people were killed and 50 were injured in clashes in the department of Pando. A group of peasants was travelling to Cobija, the department capital, to attend a mass meeting called to organise the resistance against the right wing offensive. They were intercepted by a group of employees of the regional prefect, travelling in a car belonging to the road maintenance service, and armed with assault rifles. As a result of the subsequent clashes, 9 people died. This is the highest death toll in the recent violence so far.

Meanwhile, in Santa Cruz, armed gangs of the fascist Union Juvenil Cruceñista (UJC) attempted for the second night to take over the main public squares in the 300,000-strong working class neighbourhood of Plan 3000. Throughout the night there were running battles, but the UJC was repelled by the people of Plan 3000. Comrades present report that although the people in the neighbourhood heavily outnumber the UJC thugs, the problem is that the UJC are heavily armed with tear gas grenades, bullet proof vests, assault rifles, machine guns, pistols, etc. more...  0 Comments

Beating Back Batson (Supreme Court Batson v. Kentucky 1986)

Mumia Abu-Jamal | "Mr. McMahon was putting into words what DAs did to get convictions. Does that mean his office sought a fair and impartial jury? In McMahon's words, " Well, that's ridiculous. You're not trying to get that." In fact, McMahon explained, their jobs were to get the most "unfair" jury possible. And, in many cases, that meant getting as few Blacks to serve on the jury as possible."
----Check out this short video of excerpts from the infamous McMahon Videotape:

Coddling Of Palin Is False Feminism, Disguised Sexism, Right-Wing Thatcherism

Ruth Rubinstein | The call of so-called feminists to coddle Palin is really disguised sexism and based on a medieval, male-chauvinist mentality that women are weak and fragile and should be protected. We don’t need an American Margaret Thatcher, an icon and poster child for right-wing policies that harm poor and middle-class working women, the majority of women. It's time to expose Palin for what she really is. more...  1 Comments

UK Jury Challenges Guantanamoization

Counterhegemonic | So, imagine how many cards were stacked against Abdulla Ahmed Ali, Assad Sarwar, Tanvir Hussain, Ibrahim Savant, Umar Islam, Waheed Zaman, and Arafat Waheed Khan (all UK nationals) as they stepped into the courtroom. London has already been the scene of terrorist bombings and at least four of the suspects admitted to traveling with liquid explosives disguised as soft drinks for the purpose of making a public explosion. It might be difficult for a person to imagine a scenario in which the cultural and political odds were more uneven. more...  0 Comments

The RNC’S Outrageous Assault on Amy Goodman, Democracy Now!, and Alternative Media...This is What Imperialist Democracy Looks Like

Larry Everest | These attacks mark a serious escalation of police state measures against critics of the government, taking place in the context of the rightward march of official U.S. politics generally and the fascist tone of the RNC in particular. All this has big implications for everyone who wants a more just world.
