Police rough up anti-Cheney protesters (in Canada)

Police escorted speech-goers to the private book club event inside, at one point shoving an identified reporter forcefully, pushing an older man to the ground and stepping on sitting demonstrators. Similar scenes greeted Cheney the following day in Calgary.

“People around the world are going to see images of the Vancouver Police Department roughing up peaceful demonstrators when they should have seen images of [police] hauling Dick Cheney off to a prison cell. It’s lucky nobody was seriously hurt,” said’s Derrick O’Keefe, one of the protest organizers.

The crowd of about 300 — spurred by support from the world’s second-largest rights group, U.S.-based Human Rights Watch — demanded Cheney’s arrest for war crimes and torture. Cheney is in Canada promoting his new book, In My Time: A Personal and Political Memoir, in which he defends authorizing simulated drowning known as “water-boarding,” other “enhanced interrogation techniques,” and policies rendering U.S. terror suspects to torture overseas, as in the case of now-exonerated Canadian citizen Maher Arar.

Osborne expected to oppose EU’s proposal for Tobin tax on banks

The proposed EU tax on financial transactions, which could raise €57bn a year and force banks to make a “contribution back to society”, is expected to face fierce opposition from George Osborne.

Within minutes of José Manuel Barroso, the president of the European commission, setting out plans for a transaction tax – often known as a Tobin tax or Robin Hood tax – the chancellor’s office made it clear that the City would not tolerate an EU-wide tax on transactions.

So much for “we’re all in this together”…

Another Big Month At Geithner’s Favorite Taxpayer Bank

The Federal Financing Bank (FFB) has released its August report. This is the bank that has provided the $500mm to Solyndra.

They should. The FFB is continuing to lend taxpayer money with virtually no oversight.

“The Slave Power is the Money Power”: voice from 1896

So now the Money Power, “the Usurers,” dominate all governments, as they always have done in all past history. Mr. Davis says truly, “The Money Power does not (now) Seize the man in person; it prates loudly of liberty; but it Seizes all the Resources of life and the agencies of commerce, and then bids men live or die as best they can. It has established a slavery less merciful than chattel slavery, rather, it has changed the different conditions of the people in slavery, so as that all are a hundred times more oppressed, and life is made a hundred times less worth living or preserving than it was forty, or sixty, or a hundred years ago,” condemning all labor regardless of age, sex, race or color to death or permitting life on the hardest possible terms.

The rich are different – and not in a good way, studies suggest

Psychologist and social scientist Dacher Keltner says the rich really are different, and not in a good way: Their life experience makes them less empathetic, less altruistic, and generally more selfish.

In fact, he says, the philosophical battle over economics, taxes, debt ceilings and defaults that are now roiling the stock market is partly rooted in an upper class “ideology of self-interest.”

“We have now done 12 separate studies measuring empathy in every way imaginable, social behavior in every way, and some work on compassion and it’s the same story,” he said. “Lower class people just show more empathy, more prosocial behavior, more compassion, no matter how you look at it.”

By Matt Taibbi

Over drinks at a bar on a dreary, snowy night in Washington this past month, a former Senate investigator laughed as he polished off his beer.

“Everything’s fucked up, and nobody goes to jail,” he said. “That’s your whole story right there. Hell, you don’t even have to write the rest of it. Just write that.”

I put down my notebook. “Just that?”

“That’s right,” he said, signaling to the waitress for the check. “Everything’s f**ked up, and nobody goes to jail. You can end the piece right there.”
