While the media panicked over the halting of NASDAQ stock trading due to a reported bug in the system (more on that shortly), one critical development went under-reported. In fact, it wasn’t reported at all.

If the following from France’s second largest newspaper Le Figaro is accurate, then we must assume that war is now a foregone conclusion.

Tsa Finally Sends A Letter 9 Months Later For Sexually Harassing My Fiancee

So, almost 9 months after two TSA workers sexually harassed and embarrassed my fiancee at their screening checkpoint at DCA RAEGAN airport I get a letter back from my multiple complains with the TSA. They flat out say that what happened was normal "Procedure" I'm sitting here stunned that they would respond that way. I definitely expected a canned robotic response, but this is shocking. I really don't know where to go from here minus calling a congressman (And we all know how great they are).

Here's the full story, and their response.

I Feel Like I'm 2 Years Old Again

I've grown from an infant here on the Daily Paul in the last two years.

I was delivered here by Dr. Paul, hungry to feed on the knowledge of Liberty and this site did not disappoint.

I quickly was able to crawl out from under the blanket of propaganda the Government pretends to protect me with. I grew to recognize pandering, hypocrocy, and demagoguery. I was even able to purge the Boogie Man paradigm that I was being force-fed.

Greenwald: UK Government Now 'Leaking' Documents About ITSELF! (Snowden Smear Campaign)

The NSA whistleblower says: 'I have never spoken with, worked with, or provided any journalistic materials to the Independent.'

The Independent this morning published an article - which it repeatedly claims comes from "documents obtained from the NSA by Edward Snowden" - disclosing that "Britain runs a secret internet-monitoring station in the Middle East to intercept and process vast quantities of emails, telephone calls and web traffic on behalf of Western intelligence agencies." This is the first time the Independent has published any revelations purportedly from the NSA documents, and it's the type of disclosure which journalists working directly with NSA whistleblower Edward Snowden have thus far avoided.

The Confidential Memo at the Heart of the Global Financial Crisis

When a little birdie dropped the End Game memo through my window, its content was so explosive, so sick and plain evil, I just couldn't believe it.

The Memo confirmed every conspiracy freak’s fantasy: that in the late 1990s, the top US Treasury officials secretly conspired with a small cabal of banker big-shots to rip apart financial regulation across the planet. When you see 26.3 percent unemployment in Spain, desperation and hunger in Greece, riots in Indonesia and Detroit in bankruptcy, go back to this End Game memo, the genesis of the blood and tears.

FISA court that oversees the NSA declares that that the NSA lied repeatedly to the court.

Haven't seen this specific story posted, but the lies and deceit tied into the NSA and its operations are becoming ever more clear, and Obama sticks his foot in his mouth each time he defends the defenseless, and now found illegal spy apparatus.

These Time Magazine Covers Explain Why Americans Know Nothing About The World

BUSINESS INSIDER
JIM EDWARDS | NOV. 28, 2011, 10:58 AM

It's not news that Time magazine uses different covers for its different regional editions, but it's only when you gather them all together -- so you can see what Europe and Asia read in Time compared to what Americans read in Time -- that it becomes clear how insular the U.S. edition of Time is.

Hacked road sign shows support for Snowden

A portable, electronic road sign that was supposed to alert drivers to delays on a southwest Colorado road got changed to say something completely different.

For roughly a day, it read, "SNOWDEN IS A HERO," referring perhaps to Edward Snowden, who leaked classified documents to reporters. The Telluride Daily Planet received a photo of the sign from a reader.
