Doha Didn't Do So Well But the Elites Will Surely Strike Again

Der Spiegel Explains the Directed History of Middle East

South Africa Vanishes With Its Gold?

Military Times Explains Why US Targets Afghan Children
December 06, 2012

Rising Taxes Part of Elite Global Strategy?

George W. Bush: 'Canada, Mexico and US Should Merge'
December 05, 2012
Okay, we made up the headline. George W. Bush has never publicly said that Canada, Mexico and the US should merge into one great big North American Union. But in our view, he might as well have said it. He spent a good bit of his second term sneaking around and ...
Al Qaeda Works for US in Syria?
December 05, 2012

Forbidden to Mention Foreign Currency in Ukraine Now

Kabul Bank Shows Us Afghan War is for Control Not Resources

Goldman Takes Over the World?

Free-Market Thinking Advances in Britain
November 30, 2012

India Fights the Criminalization of Shared Property
November 29, 2012

Copyright Bombshell: New Study Finds Megaupload's File-Sharing Supported Box Office
November 26, 2012

Europe's Fine Line of Deep Debt
November 23, 2012

Is Bigger Banking Better?
November 22, 2012
So now the truth comes out. Perhaps "big" banks did not evolve out of marketplace necessity after all. Perhaps they are part of what we call directed history. We're led to believe that big banks are part of a larger evolution of commerce. But if there is one th ...
Osama Bin Laden Is Really, Really Dead
November 22, 2012

A Trio of Outrages: How a Country Dies
November 21, 2012
Several articles of note seem to sum up the US these days. The first is the one excerpted above about vote stealing by the Obama administration. We're on record as stating that we simply don't believe Obama won the election. That doesn't mean we're pro-Romney, ...
Let Us Remember the Apocalyptic Rhetoric of Peak Oilers
November 21, 2012

Gold Goes Up?
November 20, 2012
Since 2001, we've held that the Western world – the world, really – is in a precious metals bull market. Just like the bull market of the 1970s, this will end in a tremendous blow-off that will leave some speculators very wealthy. Business cycles in the mod ...
Difference Between Propaganda and Reality
November 20, 2012

What's Never Grappled With …
November 19, 2012

Supersize the Committee to Prevent Fiscal Cliff Suicide

Lloyd Blankfein: Let's All Compromise to Support the Status Quo
November 15, 2012

US Military-Industrial Media Supports the Greater Good
November 15, 2012
The modern US military, certainly post-World War II, has been in the media/propaganda business at home and abroad – but blunt statements about its presentations are hard to come by. It's not something talked about a lot. We've noticed that military involvemen ...
Union Strikes Are Likely More EU False Flags …
November 14, 2012

Lurching Horror of Climate Change
November 13, 2012
We've read about the coming cooling but this article in The Register – an irreverent, 'Net-based tech site – is fairly detailed and interesting. We are not at all sure, however, that it constitutes a new meme; from what we can tell, it has not yet experienc ...

EU's Plight: Sadism or a Cold-Blooded Takedown?
November 09, 2012
