The Rule of Law is Dead. Revolt or Expatriate The United States is so degraded that reform or modification is no longer possible and the present system cannot be salvaged. The only options now available are revolt or exile. If you don't believe that you can survive revolt, then leave - while you still can.

Gerrymandering us into a Fascist State The Republican party is a dinosaur that refuses to see that it is extinct and so steals power by nefarious means.With no constituency left anywhere in the nation Rs cannot be elected to any office based on their regressive policies. So they rely on dirty tricks, with gerrymandering the most favored trick of the day.

Janet Yellen's Federal Reserve Statement -- A Translation Last Wednesday Fed Chair Yellen made her scheduled press statement after the FOMC meeting. Since the transcript of her statement is impenetrable and sooooo boring, I thought I would paraphrase it for OEN readers -- so that we all know where we stand in the hierarchy of global finance.

A Socialist Looks At "Downton Abbey" "Downton Abbey" seems to have captured the public's imagination as "Upstairs, Downstairs" did before it. But unlike its predecessor, Downton has sacrificed its dramatic and historical integrity to glitz and profit. What "Downton" could have been -- arguably should have been -- was the story of the earthquakes that shook the British class structure in the twentieth century.It is not that.

It's treason. Call it what it is. The raft of legislation rammed through both houses of Congress since December 31st - with wide majority votes - nullifies every clause in the Bill of Rights. Every senator and congressperson who voted in favor of those bills violated his or her oath of office, the promise to protect and defend the Constitution of the United States. Congress just replaced the Rule of Law with rule by tyranny. They must all be fired.

A dozen bankers are destroying civilization- and governments don't care A handful of greedy bankers are intent on destroying civilization while the governments of nations - which presumably exist for the welfare of their people - sit by and let it happen. The populations of the world, including us, are now condemned to slavery and misery - unless we find a way to stop them. The big banks must be shut down permanently, and that will take many millions of us in the streets.

we are all terrorists now Since no evidence is required in court(since there is no trial)any of us can be accused of supporting terrorism (for holding contrary opinions,sending a ten dollar check to Oxfam or on any whim),can then be arrested and imprisoned for life without charges, access to an attorney or communication with family. This is Stalin's America, and the prisons are gulags. Whatever this is,it is not a constitutional republic.

Bloomberg television slanders OWS protest At 6:00 A.M. Friday morning Bloomberg television featured a report on the OWS protests of November 17, claiming that only 2000 protesters participated and stating emphatically that "Occupy Wall Street has failed to generate enthusiasm from the American population". Both OWS and the NYC police number the crowd at Foley Square at 32,500 people. And national polls put support for the protests at one third of the nation.

The Big Club and Their Big Plan It is an actual "right-wing conspiracy", a war being waged on multiple fronts with a single aim: to create a feudal society, where Americans live mired in debt and learn to expect the dollar-a-day wages common in Asia, while the power brokers continue to live in the obscene luxury of 17th century monarchs. To quote George Carlin, "It is a big club, and you ain't in it". Can an international resistance movement defeat them?

Where are the grown-ups? As a veteran protester who has been waiting for resistance to the corporate state to show up in the next generation, I am frustrated and pissed off. The protest long-planned and scheduled to begin in Freedom Plaza in Washington DC this week, much better organized and hugely more focused, is putting Occupy Wall Street to shame.

FROM MIDDLE CLASS TO SLAVE CLASS - COURTESY OF THE FED, THE WHITE HOUSE, CONGRESS AND THE BANKERS. Was the 2008 economic meltdown a premeditated financial takeover by the Fed and Wall Street Banks? Probably. Public policy under Bush and Obama has effectively redistributed middle class savings to the wealthiest one percent of the population. We have to wonder if Obama has any interest in sustaining a democratic system.

Is Russ Feingold our last hope? Many Americans see revolution as the only remedy to embedded corruption. The revolution may come, but it will not be the one we always wished for. We urgently need the following: Publicly funded elections, an end to gerrymandering, and the impeachment of any Supreme Court justice who rules that a corporation is a person with all rights and protections guaranteed under the constitution.

Four Steps to Restoring Democracy President Obama may be slow to act on progressive issues, but there are signs that he is open to persuasion. If we want to see changes more potent than a return to Clinton-era centrism, we will need to create the popular will to support them. Here are four vital but non-partisan issues on which we can organize that Obama would likely support. Collectively they would restore our lost democracy.
