Predictable Rise of Populism
January 10, 2014
One reason we fought so hard against the Occupy Wall Street movement was because we clearly grasped it was populism. Populism is a horrible political perversion and always leads to a worse "ism," eventually. All around the world, banking elites have installed t ...
The Green Meme Collapses in Europe?
January 10, 2014
Surprise, surprise. Just as in the 1970s, technocratic efforts to change the West's energy mix via government force are proving to be a disaster. You wouldn't know it from the mainstream press that is filled with hosannas welcoming alternative energy. But, as t ...
Yellen to Take the Green Path to Major Douglas Phony Social Credit
January 09, 2014
We told you so. This Huffington Post article is a virtual twofer. First, suggest that Janet Yellen save the planet by becoming a Green activist. Second, suggest she use the phony social credit scam developed by Major Douglas back in the 1930s. Douglas believed ...
'Net Reformation Damages Chris Christie
January 09, 2014
Yes, it will. The global warming movement never recovered from leaked emails several years back that seemed to show the entire scam was orchestrated by a few "scientists" who only published articles favorable to their promotional goals. Chris Christie and his s ...
Janet Yellen, Most Powerful Sacrifice in the World?
January 08, 2014
Actually, while the mainstream media has indeed made a big deal about Yellen's gender, it is surprising how little power she will really have. She can continue the policies that have been set by Ben Bernanke and Alan Greenspan before him. The last person that r ...
Perversity of Modern White-Collar Criminal Remedies
January 08, 2014
Washington's Blog has provided us with an aggressive follow-up to the just-announced JP Morgan settlement with the SEC. Washington's Blog along with some others has kept up the heavy pressure for what would seem to be new Pecora Hearings in Washington DC. Washi ...
North American Union … And So It Begins
January 07, 2014
Let us begin this analysis with a fragment of one of our favorite poems by Percy Bysshe Shelley: On the pedestal these words appear: "My name is Ozymandias, king of kings: Look on my works, ye Mighty, and despair!" Nothing beside remains. Round the decay Of tha ...
Two Tier Travel Becoming a Reality in the US?
January 07, 2014
It is our perspective that within the next few years, certainly inside a decade, it will be difficult to travel outside the United States or move money outside. This may go for other countries in the West, also. We've written about this before but we try to ret ...
Russia Versus the West: A Tale of Serial Promotions
January 06, 2014
We have noticed that this is becoming a more prevalent elite meme. There is no doubt Russia is under sustained attack from the West and in the elite's top publications, especially Reuters, Russia is regularly damned as a corrupt, failed state. Of course, just b ...
Regulating Bad Behavior on Wall Street: Who's at Fault?
January 06, 2014
FINRA has not been getting very good press. And thus this regulatory entity, a conglomeration of the NYSE and NASD's financial regulatory efforts, is apparently going to try to make brokerage safer for the average "investor." It was the Securities and Exchange ...
Economist: Europe's Politicians Need to Tame the 'Net Reformation
January 03, 2014
Ten years ago, when we wrote about the rise of the libertarian sociopolitical center, our message wasn't exactly popular but, as we can see today in this Economist article, we were relatively accurate. First came Ron Paul and the Tea Party in the US and now non ...
IMF's World Tax Is a Puzzling Ploy
January 03, 2014
The UK Telegraph has discovered that the IMF wants to inflict radically higher taxes on the world. The article quotes a report by the International Monetary Fund saying "debt burdens in developed nations have become extreme by any historical measure and will re ...
Now Mainstream Notes an Upcoming Wall Street Party
January 02, 2014
Here's a meme often repeated: The free market is under attack in the 21st century. In truth, markets generally have been under increasing attack for the past two or three centuries, or from whenever the modern globalist conspiracy took root. Some date it to the ...
Edward Snowden: Dialectic Piñata
January 02, 2014
This is unfortunately a kind of dominant social theme. We wish it were not so, as it is a quite repugnant one. We also think it is deliberate, for we do not believe in this Snowden episode, even though we would like to. A caveat as well: We have no direct evide ...
Economist: Democracy's Unraveling to Proceed
December 31, 2013
In truth, democracy cannot be improved. It seems to work a bit when constrained in size to those who can fit into, say, a town square. This is how the demos was pursued in Greece and more recently in Switzerland. But the idea of mass democracy is simply a mirag ...
Warmists Stuck in a Sea of Denial
December 31, 2013
So a number of prominent warmists set sail on an icebreaker ship to check on the thinning of the Antarctic ice cap. What they discovered was that the ice was actually thicker than expected. And then they got stuck. If these warmists were in search of the perfec ...
Price of Gold Part of a Larger 'Party' Pattern?
December 30, 2013
There is no denying gold has fallen and hasn't yet gotten up. But the reasons for its failure and eventual resurgence remain intensely interesting. Surely no logical person can doubt that the world's securities markets are manipulated. Would that it were not so ...
Audacity of Optimism and the Limning of the Lie
December 30, 2013
This is a great Reuters editorial by the "Edgy Optimist," because it takes aim at a central issue of our time – the ability of our top elites to continue to control the Western sociopolitical and economic narrative. Of course, we have long predicted that this ...
Jobless Jokes
December 27, 2013
More absurdity from Reuters: The writers and editors want to lead with an upbeat jobs report but then a few grafs later they're admitting "the holiday season has made recent claims data so volatile it has been difficult to interpret." Twenty years ago we didn't ...
Directed History of Modern Debtors' Prisons?
December 27, 2013
We wrote about this over a year and a half ago, but are not amazed to see Fox presenting it. After all, what is the use of a meme if it is not blasted through the airwaves? If people are not intimidated, then those involved in the propagation of these dominant ...
Now China … Reasons for Printing Money Abound
December 26, 2013
Every central bank of note in the world is printing money faster and faster. We don't think this is any coincidence. The world's top bankers seem to want a huge stock market explosion that will make current averages look fairly tame. What comes after the punch ...
Post Office Funding Is Not About Preserving Mail
December 26, 2013
Why does the US government cling to a government facility that is not needed and loses a lot of money on a regular basis? The funding given to the US Post Office and mentioned above – amounting to six percent – is startling because it begins to reveal a rat ...
Directed History of the Swiss Tax Settlement
December 24, 2013
More to the point ... what a mess this is. The Swiss Banks are making a desperate effort to fulfill US mandates when it comes to cooperating with US taxing authorities. But the vast effort being made shows clearly how difficult those demands actually are. Proba ...
UnMerry Elite Holidays as Technological Cycles Decrease
December 24, 2013
The printed metal gun referred to in the above article excerpt is an illustration of what we might call the Law of Internet Reformation. Or we might call it karma: For every action there is a reaction. The information/technology revolution that so dispirits man ...
Economist Mag Defends Fed With an Ode to the Dead
December 23, 2013
The funniest thing about this article – and there are many portions that are at least incongruous – is the short excerpt that was selected as the article's title, above, "Age Shall Not Weary Her." It comes from the "Ode of Remembrance," by English poet Laur ...
Reuters Makes the Rational Case for a Surveillance State
December 23, 2013
We have long predicted that the outcome of the Edward Snowden "revelations" would be a rationalizing of the current global surveillance infrastructure. The problem of those who built the current infrastructure is that not enough people knew about it. These are ...
Fed's 'Elixir' Is Surely a Temporary One
December 20, 2013
Once again we are exposed to a triumphant article about the eventual infallibility of the Fed. Yes, Ben Bernanke did initially have trouble initiating a "taper" but now he's found the right recipe. The Fed has found the "elixir." It can disentangle itself from ...
Angela Merkel: Let Us Deepen the Union to Raid It
December 20, 2013
Frau Merkel is at it again, proving what we have long observed – that the top men of the eurozone have in mind using every scrap of each EU disaster to promote a further, deeper union. This has actually been stated in so many words in the past, and here we ca ...
When We Will Celebrate the End of QE, and Why
December 19, 2013
The promotional propaganda is well underway. We are told that central banks are starting to print less money, especially the Federal Reserve. But to run a central bank is to run a printing press. And no one – no one at all – can ever say with certainty how ...
The Economist Hoists Its Battle Balloon?
December 19, 2013
You can't make this stuff up. The top men in the globalist community have been hard at work building wars and potential wars, and now it's time to let 'er rip. This is one dominant social theme we saw coming miles away. We've been writing about its imminence fo ...
Forced Savings Bait-and-Switch
December 18, 2013
Step by step, government organizes savings for private citizens. Each step may seem logical at the time but the cumulative effect is to strip individuals of any ability to survive outside of the womb of the nanny state. This Reuters article is proposing that "f ...
Schekman's Criticisms of Science Don't Go Far Enough
December 18, 2013
We've often wondered what constitutes civilization. Ayn Rand believed civilization's highest art was privacy. But perhaps, to a degree, it is the rigorous adoption and promulgation of the scientific method. We arrive at the idea by returning to the Renaissance, ...
Cognitive Dissonance of Ben Bernanke?
December 17, 2013
It's always a treat – if one is in the debunking business – to read an article like this in the Financial Times. Pompous, pious, filled with reverence for modern, monetary price fixing, almost every word is a lie and every paragraph offers us identifiable ...
Is NATO's Invisible Hand Alone in the Ukraine?
December 17, 2013
This is one of those stories with no easy answers – except perhaps one. And we'll get to that shortly. The poor, beleaguered Ukrainian culture is torn between East and West and those wishing for a better life apparently have to choose between Russia and the E ...
New Era in DC Is Business-As-Usual … Really?
December 16, 2013
We return to this meme because it is a popular one. We've commented several times before on the mainstream media's determination to declare the US Tea Party dormant. This Reuters article is a good example of the genre. What must be galling to those proposing th ...
Ensuring the Boundaries of Truth
December 16, 2013
The only trouble with this kind of mea culpa is that nations really don't exist. And this is especially true at the top of the federal government where powerful factions compete for clout and funding. It's a blood sport and losing can be serious, indeed, potent ...
Monsanto Marijuana Initiative Grows in Uruguay?
December 13, 2013
Are considerations regarding Monsanto's business progress in South America behind the legalization of marijuana in Uruguay? George Soros was a significant supporter of marijuana legalization in Uruguay, and Soros is reportedly also a big Monsanto shareholder. H ...
Telegraph Article a 'Twofer' When It Comes to Monetary Misdirection
December 13, 2013
This is one of those articles that attempts to humanize central banking by treating these facilities as people and casting (modest) doubt on their expertise and intelligence. Of course, those who stop by here regularly know that we believe monopoly central bank ...
Top Conservative Pundit Endorses Redistributionist Major Douglas!
December 12, 2013
We've tried to keep track of this meme because it is perhaps the most insufferable single dominant social theme disseminated by the power elite. To recap: We begin with Henry George who created the idea of a land tax in the mid-1800s; he influenced his disciple ...
From Obamacare to Single Payer – We Told You So
December 12, 2013
Yes, this indeed is what we've predicted. As aficionados of directed history, we observed the recent rollout of Obamacare and decided it was probably incompetent on purpose. We don't have any direct evidence for this except that it is so terribly produced and s ...
Real Reason for the US's Global Tax Levy
December 11, 2013
One thing is for certain: This amped-up regulatory regime is not about taxes. It's about control ... not just of Swiss banking facilities but ultimately of banks around the world, large and small. In fact, the top elites already run central banks around the wor ...
The Dialectical Pomposity of the Tapering Promotion
December 11, 2013
In fact, the tapering conversation is not complicated at all. Take a look at a picture of James Bullard sometime. The Bloomberg article carried a photo of him in front of a podium, serious and a bit truculent looking. But in the Modern Era, the wages of success ...
FT Explains the Decline and Fall of the West … Thanks!
December 10, 2013
The Financial Times does us the favor of advancing what we call directed history in this article. It is certainly an amazing article, explaining how the West is collapsing and what it portends. You can see at the end of this excerpt that a specific threat is le ...
Silicon Valley Is Not the Answer to the Surveillance State
December 10, 2013
We are supposed to be grateful that the world's largest tech companies are standing up to US government and its intrusive intel operations. But we have a difficult time summoning the appropriate enthusiasm. From our point of view, it's a kind of "directed histo ...
Questions About Bitcoin, Alternative Investing Lead to Freedom Fund
December 09, 2013
Let's start with bitcoin. Then comes a bigger announcement ... We've been skeptical of bitcoin for years. The smug techno-geekness of bitcoin's backers irritated us, especially when we realized what they were supporting – a system that keeps track digitally o ...
Extraordinary Directed History of the WTO Trade Breakthrough
December 09, 2013
We're probably just in a worse mood than usual, but to us this Reuters article has an unusually gloating tone. And we reject totally both the gloating and the reason for it. Governments don't create trade. All governments can do is get in the way of businesspeo ...
Taxes: Another Weapon of Globalist Destruction?
December 06, 2013
Say what? This WSJ article warns us that most major governments around the world are contemplating significant tax hikes. There are three major conclusions that we would draw from this. First, those globalists who want homogenized, high-tax societies have no in ...
A Danger to the Constitution? Solutions Must Be Individual
December 06, 2013
This RealClearPolitics transcript is taken from a recent House hearing that featured Professor Jonathan Turley, someone who is #38 among US "public intellectuals." In the excerpt of his address to Congress above, Turley registers concern that President Barack O ...
Reuters: Why Modern Society Must Do Away With Privacy ASAP
December 05, 2013
Think of government as a stern father or an understanding confessor. Reveal your most intimate secrets. It won't hurt. And it will help to forget that governments slaughtered something like 200 million people in the 20th century. We're well on our way to compre ...
Surveillance State? Washington Post Explains It … Not!
December 05, 2013
Thanks, Washington Post, for explaining what's really going on. But have you? Really? Hmm. We recall Operation Mockingbird, a CIA operation that even Wikipedia – that black hole of disinformation – admits was in force in the 20th century. Of course, we are ...
