The Confessions of Hank Paulson



I never saw a city boy yet who was worth a damn.   – Ernest Hemingway.

They never really fade away, the old soldiers, the bankers-cum-politicians, even the ball players. They always at least try for a come-back, although they rarely bring it off. I recall a sultry Saturday at Yankee Stadium in 1954 when Frankie Crossetti, performing in an exhibition game that brought the Miller Huggins Yankees out of mothballs to confront Casey Stengel’s more youthful oldsters. Frankie laced the first pitch he’d looked at in 15 years over the right center field wall, only to fall down half way to first base with a charley horse.

Senators OK with U.S. assassinations

(RICHMOND, RI) President Obama likes to use unmanned drones to kill suspects – even American citizens. He sees no need to charge a suspect with a crime, or to allow the suspect legal representation or a jury trial.  But the President wanted supporting legal arguments for this unprecedented approach. So David J. Barron of the Justice Department obliged with a memo to justify assassinating a U.S. citizen. Barron’s memo is secret.

(The public should not learn how such killings are approved.) Obama rewarded Mr. Barron by nominating him for a lifetime judgeship on the First Circuit U.S. Court of Appeals. With the nomination before the U.S. Senate for confirmation, Sen. Rand Paul (R, KY) led the opposition because of the assassination memo. But on May 21, the Senate voted 52-43 to cut off debate, and the next day the Senate confirmed Barron’s nomination 53-45.

My experience as a member of the U.S. armed services was a long time ago. It was also far removed from a battlefield. I was an Air Force public information officer during the Korean War.

Edward Snowden vindicated by public, but not government officials who have been caught in a web of lies.

The latest Newsweek poll of the US public on Edward Snowden has reaffirmed my faith in the US public, because despite all the propaganda by the administration officials, right wing members of Congress, and the corporate media, which merely regurgitates the official government line, about how bad, evil, cowardly, and traitorous Mr. Snowden is, the public saw through it and understands Snowden is the good guy and they are the bad guys.

“If this is the freedom the US/EU/Israel is planning for the Arab world, and indeed it is, then Egypt doesn’t want your freedom or your democracy”

It’s not just a new inauguration; it is not just a new president. Don’t get misled by the mainstream headlines (or even the title of this post for that matter)
