Debt ceiling deadline: no solution in sight

Debt ceiling deadline: no solution in sight


The US now has just a month to agree on raising the 14.3 trillion dollar debt ceiling, which the country has already blown through. The Treasury reaffirmed the August 2 deadline today as the drop-dead date before the US defaults on its debt. Still, politicians are playing chicken with the debt ceiling, which is making investors like the Chinese nervous. While some say trying to cut a deal with the debt ceiling is a scare tactic, others argue the US wouldn't "really" default, leaving a huge question mark about what could happen. Les Leopold, economist and author, is joining RT's Lauren Lyster to discuss the issue.

Walk of shame: DSK vs MSM


Dominique Strauss-Kahn, the former IMF head, was released today from
house arrest. The sexual assault charges he is pending might be dropped
soon, but the mainstream media is singing a different tune than the one they were when the story of DSK's alleged sexual assault first broke. Was he already guilty in the eyes of the mainstream press in what now may have been a mistake? Chris Chambers, professor of journalism from Georgetown, explains what the price is.

Gerald Celente: 'IMF - International Mafia Federation'

Gerald Celente: IMF - International Mafia Federation


The Greek Parliament has just passed a plan for new austerity measures,
but tensions remain high on the streets, showing that frustration levels are only growing. Meanwhile in the UK half a million public sector workers took to the streets to protest governmental plans to change their pensions and freeze pay. In Washington the debt ceiling talks seem to be leading nowhere either - and all of this is backed by some more bad news: the latest jobless numbers are in and last week jobless claims were at about 428,000. That means for the last 12 weeks jobless claims have remained over 400,000. Gerard Celente, the director of the Trends Research Institute, shares his thoughts.

Sad legacy of Robert Gates

Sad legacy of Robert Gates


There have been several reports of Robert Gates' frustration coming into the Pentagon, being shocked at the machine he was dealing with, especially having seen that people were more interested in planning for war than actually waging it. He urged for better equipment for troops already in Iraq and Afghanistan and instead found a defense department that wanted otherwise - though he did manage to get 20 billion dollars for his cause. This is just one example of what Gates dealt with - how this machine shaped the war effort. For more here is Stephen Lendman the Progressive Radio News Hour host and Michael Prysner - Iraq veteran and political activist.

The Greek Parliament passed over a plan to implement new austerity
measures, but tensions still remain high. The residents continue to take to
the streets and wage protests, and no one can tell when the violence will stop. At the same time, more than half a million public sector workers are involved in protests against governmental plans to change their pensions and freeze pay in Britain. Meanwhile, debt ceiling talks are still underway in Washington but to no tangible success. The bad news is still trickling in: last week jobless claims were at approximately 428,000, meaning for the last 12 weeks jobless claims remained above 400,000.

Congressman Nadler: 'President became absolute monarch'

Congressman Nadler: 'President became absolute monarch'



The US Constitution says that Congress is supposed to declare their wars and the War Powers Act effectuates that, and yet US presidents regularly violate this regulation. Congressman Jerrold Nadler (D-NY) says that the US is turning into a monarchy over the decision making involved with when they get into wars. He says there was no excuse in the Libyan operation, no imminent threat to the United States security and that there was plenty of time to negotiate the situation. Yet, he says, US President Barack Obama initiated military participation without asking Congress — it is one-man decision making and something way beyond his powers.
