ALL LINKS OPEN A NEW WINDOW!!!

Joining the ranks of "peace" luminaries such as Henry Kissinger (1973), Yasser Arafat (1994) and Frederik Willem de Klerk (1993) President Obama won the Nobel Peace Prize for "hope for a better future." Robert Reich calls it "the booby" prize for not being W. Gilbert: "I'll be mighty upset if Obama wins the AL Cy Young award over Hernandez and Grienke." Hahahaha! Glenn Greenwald nails it in Obama's Nobel Peace Prize: "But far more important than the lack of actual accomplishments are some of the policies over which Obama has presided that are the very opposite of peace. Already this year, he not only escalated the American war in Afghanistan, but has ordered air raids...Beyond Afghanistan, Obama continues to preside over another war -- in Iraq: remember that? -- where no meaningful withdrawal has occurred. He uttered not a peep of opposition to the Israeli massacre of Gazan civilians at the beginning of this year (using American weapons)...He's worked tirelessly to protect his country not only from accountability -- but also transparency -- for the last eight years of war crimes, almost certainly violating America's treaty obligations in the process. And he is currently presiding over an expansion of the legal black hole at Bagram while aggressively demanding the right to abduct people from around the world, ship them there, and then imprison them indefinitely with no rights of any kind." Those would be called international illegal renditions. Let's not forget Gitmo, too, where "detainees" are being held without any habeus corpus rights. UPDATE II: On Democracy Now, Naomi Klein calls Obama's award "disappointing, cheapening of the Nobel Prize," and adds: "I think it’s quite insulting. I don’t know what kind of political game they’re playing, but I don’t think that the committee has ever been as political as this or as delusional as this, frankly." Meanwhile the Beltway Press presses on as only it can this Sunday where the focus is coincidentally the WAR in Afghanistan. Start your morning throwing bricks at Obstructionist-First-Class MITCH MCCONNELL on Face the Bob. Save some bricks for DIFI & SAXBY CHAMBLISS on This Snufagopolis. Meet the David goes military with GEN. BARRY MCCAFFREY (RET.) & GEN. RICHARD MYERS (RET.) perhaps part of the Pentagon’s Hidden Hand? State of the King sits down with JOHN "Crazy Train" MCCAIN where he echos GOP talking points and tries to distance himself from the teabaggers and birthers. Our BTV Alert section is chockablock with more real news stories. AntiWar Radio has two good interviews about Afghanistan and the U.S. Military, Ring of Fire has Rolling Stone's TIM DICKINSON and Rep BARNEY FRANK and our Peter B. Collins segment features Economist RAVI BATRA with BTV correspondent BillORightsMan with a phone-in question! Of course MAX KEISER is good, too, with a long interview with JIM WILLIE CB discussing Systemic Failure Approaches among other things economic. The Brick TeeVee Crew has been glued to the MLB Playoffs, watching former Tribe stars do well for their new clubs. The Dodgers moved to the NL LCS Saturday by sweeping the Cards and the Rockies-Phillies Game 3 in Denver was delayed by BAD WEATHER (imagine that!). Enjoy your Sunday!

BRICK TEEVEE ACTION!


AG ERIC HOLDER: INVESTIGATE "TORTURE MEMOS" Alliance for Justice Tortured Law (see 10 min video at link) President Barack Obama has ended six years of American torture of suspected terrorists arising from the aftermath of the 9-11 attacks. The torture was originally outlined and sanctioned in 2002 by a series of memos drafted by lawyers in the Department of Justice's Office of Legal Counsel. Were these lawyers simply giving the President their best legal advice? Or was their work part of a larger criminal conspiracy to distort the law and authorize torture? Attorney General Eric Holder recently announced an investigation of low-level CIA operatives who exceeded the grisly authority provided by the "torture memos." But the superiors who ordered these actions, and the lawyers who provided the legal cover have not been held accountable. Will there be a full investigation that follows the evidence up the chain of command? Call on Attorney General Eric Holder to uphold the Constitution and the law by releasing the OPR report and authorizing a full investigation of those who ordered, designed, and justified torture. Only then can the nation truly move forward. CLICK NOW Call on A.G. Holder to Launch a Full-Scale Investigation of the "Torture Memos" and SIGN!

    Info on Podcast #47 (mp3) Published on 07 October 2009 by admin in Podcast Info - One on one with Ravi Batra! Professor Batra of SMU is the controversial economist who accurately predicted the fall of the Shah, the breakup of the Soviet Union, and the 2008 real estate bubble. He explains how his forecasts are based on the “law of social cycles” and predicts the imminent fall of American capitalism, as detailed in his book “The New Golden Age: The Coming Revolution Against Political Corruption and Economic Chaos”. Batra offers wide ranging comments on the bailouts for Wall St. and Detroit, takes some cracks at Paul Krugman and other economists, and explains why he is one of the few economists who sees poverty as a scourge and working people as assets, not liabilities. Listener Jerry Taylor requested this interview, and we feature our first listener call on a podcast.
