'The Age of WikiLeaks'

It was the first book to appear on the rise of WikiLeaks, and a month later it is still going strong (see cover at far left).  The Age of WikiLeaks: From Collateral Murder to Cablegate is now out in both print ($11.95) and e-book ($4.99) editions and has been updated to early February.  The e-book can be read on iPhone, Kindle, Blackberry, iPad, Android, on the Web and more.  This week it was even optioned for a movie (details to come).  And, of course, I continue to write the only daily live-blog on WikiLeaks News & Views, just well past the 80th day at The Nation's site.

I'm just getting around to posting about the new book here and so  more will follow.   For now I'll leave it at this:

"From the moment I discovered Greg Mitchell's amazing WikiLeaks blog it has become indispensable.  'The Age of WikiLeaks' follows in the footsteps of his brilliant books on nuclear threat, the Iraq war, the media and American politics."  --- Daniel Ellsberg

This acclaimed book charts the incredible rise of WikiLeaks, and its political and media impact, from April 2010 to February 2011 -- and what it means for the future --  written by award-winning author Greg Mitchell.  His WikiLeaks blog at The Nation has gained a vast worldwide audience and praise from Bill Moyers and many others.  Includes gripping, revelatory chapters on every major WikiLeaks release of the past year,  from Iraq and Afghanistan war logs to the bombshell  State Department cables, right up to the Egypt revolt.  Plus:  current controversies,  media failures, the Bradley Manning case, and what lies ahead in the wide new world of leaking.   Published  by Sinclair Books. 

"One of the nation's most insightful journalists, Greg Mitchell, tackles in this book one of the most fascinating and important political controversies of the last decade:  WikiLeaks.  Few commentators know more about this vital topic. Mitchell's daily blog has been a must-read."   ---Glenn Greenwald,  Salon.com

I think that it is great that they are disclosing those documents that it is easier to know more about those people that they control our planet.

Credit Repair – Maintain the Correct Debt To Credit Ratio
Many people believe that paying off their credit cards every month is a good idea. And if you are trying to stay out of debt, then I would have to agree with you. If you are trying to build credit and look good to your creditors, then paying off your credit cards every month is actually a bad idea. Let me explain.
Creditors and lenders don’t make there money from annual fees on credit cards. They make there money on the interest that you pay each month. If you are paying off your balances each month, the creditors and lenders aren’t making any money. Creditors want to see someone that can maintain a balance each month and make payments on time. This goes a long way in showing your credit worthiness and actually is built into the algorithm that calculates your credit score.
Your debt to credit ratio is very simple to calculate. Suppose you have a credit card with a $10,000 limit. If your balance on this card is $2500 then your debt to credit ratio would be 25%. A good ratio to maintain to help raise your score would be between 30-35%.
Your ratio is based on all your credit card limits and balances and combined. This actually gives you some flexibility.
If you had a limit on one card of $5000 and a balance of $3250 then your debt to credit ratio would be around 75%. To fix this you could pay off a big portion of your balance or you could ask the creditor to raise your limit to $10,000. The latter costs you no money but alters your ratio to around 35%. With multiple cards there are many combinations to achieve a good credit ratio by upping the limits on some cards and paying down others. I think you get the idea.
It may not be necessary to maintain this high ratio on your credit cards all the time. Use this technique to build your credit fast. If you will soon be in the market to get a home loan or auto loan, perhaps begin moving towards this ratio several months before shopping for a loan. Once you get a loan you can let this ratio go down to something more manageable.
This is just one little technique that can have huge ramifications on your credit score. I hope it helps. And remember to make all your payments on time. This can’t be stressed enough. Those 30 and 60 day late payments will kill your credit faster than you can repair it. Good luck!

The 9/11 truth is out on the internet.
This is the truth: The WTC was destroyed by 3 underground thermo-nuclear explosions. They were detonated by the US government who used this as an excuse to lead the US and its allies into invading Afghanistan and Iraq. All these wars and deaths were based on a lie.

Goebbels: “If you tell a lie big enough and keep repeating it, people will eventually come to believe it.”

Will you help to tell the truth to the world?
