http://blip.tv/grittv/chris-hedges-the-absurdity-of-american-empire-excerpt-6348118What happens when you force communities, families and entire ecosystems to kneel before the dictates of the marketplace? You get what Chris Hedges, co-author with Joe Sacco of Days of Destruction, Days of Revolt, calls “sacrifice zones.” From Appalachia to North Dakota to Camden, New Jersey, these zones, ravaged by the excesses of capitalism, prefigure our collective future.This is an excerpt, watch the full interview with Chris Hedges and Laura Flanders at http://www.blip.tv/file/6331379Distributed by OneLoad.com

Romney Has Found a New Way to Lie!

Published on Sep 12, 2012 by TheBigPictureRT

Mitt Romney has figured out a new way to lie. In an interview on Sunday with NBC, watched by millions of people – Romney said that there are a number of things he likes with Obamacare – including a guarantee that health insurers can’t deny healthcare to people with pre-existing conditions – and reforms that allow children to stay on their parents’ health plans until the age of 26. So the man who first created Obamneycare in Massachusetts, and then disavowed it when he ran for President, now supports it again. Or he did for a few hours, until his campaign told Buzz Feed that Romney actually opposes all provisions of Obamacare and instead believes that the corporate-run “free market” will find a way to cover those with pre-existing conditions. In other words, Romney wants to roll-back Obamacare.

So the Romney Big Lie strategy works like this – go on Meet the Press, where a lot of moderate, undecided voters will be watching – and lie about your position on protecting people with pre-existing conditions. Try to assure the independents that you won’t let health insurers act like death panels toward children with pre-existing conditions. And then, after the show is off the air – immediately backtrack – and issue a “correction” to your base, a group of right-wing crazies who are perfectly OK with letting health insurance companies discriminate against sick children again. I’ve said it before – I’ll say it again – the only way Mitt Romney can win this election is by lying. And now he’s coming up with ever more clever ways to do so.

Wikileaks released half a million documents related to 9/11

E120, media

Despite the legal battle the Wikileaks co-founder Julian Assange finds himself in, today the website itself is still functioning. Today it has released half a million documents gathered within 24 hours of the 9/11 attack. So it seems that despite the political turmoil faced by Assange for Wikileaks it’s business as usual. RT spoke with the whistleblower’s lawyer Baltasar Garzon for the latest development in his case.
