ISRAEL NEWS:

Israel’s former president Moshe Katsav charged with rape. He is also accused of sexually harassing at least one female employee while he was president.

Katsav alleged to have first diagnosed case of Clinton Envy.

Israeli soldiers arrested senior members of Hamas, after they had failed to reach agreement on an Egyptian brokered prisoner swap.

Well, that’s certainly one way to conduct negotiations.  Not the way I would have chosen though… It certainly gave Hamas some incentive to come up with an acceptable solution though… It makes me wonder what their elections are like.

HANDOUTS, AIG, BONUSES, and the FEDERAL RESERVE:

President George W. Bush’s administration “specifically contemplated” paying bonuses to American International Group Inc. employees

This from Troubled Asset Relief Plan inspector Neil Barofsky, who testified before the House Ways and Means oversight subcommittee.  This shows us how much Change has occurred between presidents.  The current president was aware of this long before the current brouhaha started, which is not what appearances would indicate.  Evil is evil.

But enough of this.  It is merely another in a long series of smokescreens designed to direct your attention away from the real issue, which is how many trillions of our dollars have been thrown away, some out of the country, by Bush, Obama, and their traitorous impotent lapdogs in Congress.

While we’re on the topic, a government watchdog group delivered a message Wednesday to the aforementioned Congressional Lackeys: AIG’s ability repay its $170 billion in loans from taxpayers has eroded significantly.

Perhaps we will need to give them another handout, so they can pay back a small portion of the `loans’ from the last handout…

For more than a year, the U.S. Federal Reserve System has been increasingly acting as the world’s central bank, injecting hundreds of billions of dollars into foreign government treasuries in an effort to increase liquidity in those countries. The foreign central banks have used the U.S. currency to bail out financial institutions within their
borders.

So the Federal Reserve, which isn’t federal or a reserve, is acting to prop up foreign economies. Aren’t you going to ask why this is?  And whose money they’re using?

Several million workers and youth took to the streets in 213 cities and towns throughout France yesterday in opposition to rising poverty, rapidly growing unemployment and government austerity policies involving cuts in the social services.

You know, I spend a lot of time making fun of the French (let’s face it – who doesn’t?).  But I have to hand it to them: they got up off their low cholesterol wine drinking derrieres to say something.  Which is more than I can say for certain countries in North America…  think about it… we have been out-shouted by the French.
