"The action I am taking is no more than a radical measure to hasten the explosion of truth and justice. I have but one passion: to enlighten those who have been kept in the dark, in the name of humanity which has suffered so much and is entitled to happiness. My fiery protest is simply the cry of my very soul. Let them dare, then, to bring me before a court of law and let the enquiry take place in broad daylight!" - Emile Zola, J'accuse! (1898) -

Impeachment Remains A Serious Issue With Those Most Devoted To Justice. Despite The Daily Fall Off Of Impeachment Groups We Are Seeing A Dual Focus Among The Remaining Advocates:

 Impeachment And Prosecution---And No Toleration Of The Notion Of A Massive Bush Pardon Move.

The picture of administration abuse grows with each passing day and the world sinks deeper into financial crisis the Bush Crowd remains solid in their “Ideology First, Protect The Fat Cats” approach to the point where rebellion with the administration is surfacing and a world community is walking in the direction of taking things out of our hands. Symbolic Gestures, Rhetoric and posturing are not going to do a damn thing. All attempts at restoring psychological confidence in the economy are now viewed as just another Bush Confidence game and there is going to be hell to play shortly.

The Problems Are Real; The Solutions Must Be Real!

In the mean time the desperation of “White Supremacists” and the Old KKK are right out in the open. McCain and Palin have given them validation!

Obama Has More Threats Than Other Presidents-Elect

Chatter among white supremacists on the Internet has increased throughout the campaign and since Election Day.

One of the most popular white supremacist Web sites got more than 2,000 new members the day after the election, compared with 91 new members on Election Day, according to an AP count. The site,stormfront.org, was temporarily off-line Nov. 5 because of the overwhelming amount of activity it received after Election Day. On Saturday, one Stormfront poster, identified as Dalderian Germanicus, of North Las Vegas, said, "I want the SOB laid out in a box to see how 'messiahs' come to rest. God has abandoned us, this country is doomed."

It is not surprising that a black president would galvanize the white supremacist movement, said Mark Potok, director of the Southern Poverty Law Center, who studies the white supremacy movement.

"The overwhelming flavor of the white supremacist world is a mix of desperation, confusion and hoping that this will somehow turn into a good thing for them," Potok said. He said hate groups have been on the rise in the past seven years because of a common concern about immigration.

The following paragraph appeared in an AP story in the Cols Dispatch -- "Civil-rights group sues Klan in '06 assault on Latino teen", that ran on Wednesday, November 12.

"Still, the Montgomery, Ala.-based center (Southern Poverty Law Center -Morris Dees), which tracks hate groups, deems the Imperial Klans the country's second-largest Klan organization, after the Brotherhood of Klans, Knights of the Ku Klux Klan in Marion, Ohio." (emphasis added)

I thought at first it was an error and that Brett Barrouquere of the AP had meant Marion, IN. The Klan originated in Indiana. But he was talking about Marion, OH.

I have no desire to give this organization any publicity, but does any Ohio media or law enforcement organization keep track of what they are up to? See links below.

World leaders mull reforms at financial summit

G20 leaders meeting in Washington are considering how best to reform the global banking system in the wake of the financial crisis. However, expectations of a breakthrough remain low, partly because the summit’s host, President Bush, will be stepping down in a matter of weeks.

George W Bush, though, was quite optimistic at the opening meeting. He said that reforms will not help if the world abandons the ideals of the free market and further restricts trade. He said the summit would be “the first in a series of meetings”.

He then outlined the summit’s goals: “We’ll focus on the key five objectives: understanding the causes of the global crisis, reviewing the effectiveness of our responses thus far, identifying principles for reforming our financial and regulatory systems, launching a specific action plan to implement those principles, and reaffirming our conviction that free market principles offer the surest path to the lasting prosperity,”Bush said.

Just talking

The financial crisis, which began in the US, is crippling the American economy and creating serious problems for the rest of the world. To deal with it, the leaders of the world’s 20 richest countries are gathering in Washington for a one-day brain storming session. Will they succeed in finding a way out of the crisis?

Paul Krugman, a Nobel Prize winner in Economics and New York Times columnist, calls the summit a “major non-meeting of minds”, and says no binding agreements will come out of it.

“It’s more of a touchy-feely meeting right now. We’re not going to reach a pact for everybody to spend three per cent of GDP on stimulus this weekend. Possibly, there could be some commitment in principle to some kind of exchange rate stabilisation for emerging markets. I wouldn’t set the expectations too high right now,” Krugman said.

The U.S. is at the core of the ongoing financial crisis. However, American president-elect Barack Obama won’t be attending. It is George Bush who is hosting the summit, even though he’s leaving the White House in just two months. This has made many wonder why the summit is being held at all.

Dennis Kucinich is an outspoken critic of the Bush administration, who has called for George Bush’s impeachment dozens of times.

“Mr Bush is unfortunately not in a position where anything he says is going to be relied on by the world community,”
Kucinich said.

Balancing the distribution of money

The population of the G20 states makes up two-thirds of people on the planet. The countries also account for 80 per cent of the world’s GDP.

They are also members of the International Monetary Fund (IMF) - an international organisation that oversees the global financial system, and is an international lender of last resort. Many analysts say the IMF is at the core of the problem. They say the IMF will need to be reformed in order to put a new financial architecture in place.

Quotas and voting power among IMF members do not reflect the sizes of economies and ability to contribute resources.

“49.5 per cent of the voting shares in the fund are represented by the United States and Europe. Only 5.6 per cent of the IMF voting structure is in the hands of China and India. This is ridiculous. This does not make sense,” Colin Bradford says, nonresident senior fellow from the Brookings Institution in Washington.

Russia and the EU have called for reform of both the IMF and the World Bank. However, the U.S. has been sending mixed signals in terms of the specific action it would want to see taken.
