IMF Leading the Way on Climate Change

Fantastic news. The International Monetary Fund (IMF), that benevolent lender of money to the downtrodden and disrespected, is leading the charge in fighting climate change.

Believe me, this news combined with the Pentagon and Military Industrial Complex's plans to lead the way against war, imperialism and militarism should be taken as a sign of optimism for us all.

"For the first time, the IMF laid out exactly what it views as appropriate taxes on coal, natural gas, gasoline and diesel in 156 countries to factor in the fuels' overall costs, which include carbon dioxide emissions, air pollution, congestion and traffic accidents.

I won't bother with the details, it's all in a new IMF book. This book should be in every environmentalist's back pocket as they spread the good news to the happy people.

We should all be grateful that our leaders are so intent on protecting us and our beloved planet.

Tahrir II: Neoliberal Harder

Remember September 11, 2012 and the embassy attacks?

I'm not talking about the aftermath and controversies over its handling.  I'm talking specifically about September 11, 2012, as events unfolded.

Do you remember what was happening in Egypt?  Do you remember the protests, and reports of people climbing the embassy walls, pulling down an American flag?

The IMF: Incompetent, Ideological or Simply Lying?

To go even further, Blanchard and Leigh are lying, they know damn well what these policies are for, and to pretend that they made a mistake in calculation is an attempt to disguise the true purpose of these policies and those of the economists and politicians that advocate them.

Humanitarianism is Geopolitical Rohypnol: Mali

In case you didn't know, there is serious shit going down in Mali. In case you did know, all the information that's delivered to your door about it serves the interests of the Western Empire, not the people of Mali. Time for the latest chapter on how Western humanitarianism is being used to rape the world.

Mali is the latest subject of Western imperial ogling, and all of Obama's international neoliberal fraternity brothers are taking their turn explaining why Mali is just asking for some forcible intervention.
