UN Takes on Al Qaeda in Mali
December 21, 2012
The UN is being drawn into war. This "deployment of troops" in Africa will take place in Mali (see excerpt above) but probably expand, as the actual theatre occupies much of upper Africa, a region about the size of the lower United States. War and more war. The ...

Massive Psy-op? Obama Can Ban Guns By Himself – And He Will
December 20, 2012
We would be all for gun control except for two things: It doesn't work and it seems to be part of what we call directed history. The goal is to reduce the ability of individuals to fight back against world government. There is almost no doubt more "controls" ar ...
Brits Rename Piece of Antarctica 'Queen Elizabeth Land'
December 20, 2012
Here's one that slipped under the radar of most of the alternative 'Net media. Part of Antarctica was just named for Queen Elizabeth (see above). The subdominant social theme here, as enunciated by the BBC and other outlets, could be that this is simply a furth ...
Does Berlusconi Matter to the EU?
December 19, 2012
We were told months ago that Silvio Berlusconi was going back into politics. He's easily the most important politico in Italy, so we weren't surprised. His presence has only become more important when measured against that of the technocrat, Mario Monti. And Mo ...
Why the Chinese Demand US Gun Control
December 19, 2012
The Chinese have weighed in ... Breitbart is reporting that the Chinese government is concerned about US gun violence (see above excerpt). This is notable because it tends to support certain dominant social themes we have noted before. We do believe that the Ch ...
Big Pharma: When Will Critical Mass Be Reached?
December 19, 2012
We keep covering the unraveling of the pharmaceutical industry because this is where what we call the Internet Reformation has been increasingly effective. Even ten years ago, the Western model of healthcare was regnant but now it is reeling. And the Internet i ...
The Madness of Afghanistan
December 18, 2012
Con Coughlin is one of the most persistent and consistent of Afghan war reporters. In fact, a UK Telegraph feedbacker noted recently: I admire your consistent position on all matters war, Mr Coughlin. There hasn't been one single war (or the threat of it, such ...
No More Questions to Ask About Sandy Hook Shooting?
December 18, 2012
There are questions to ask, just as there were at Columbine where hundreds of witnesses saw more than two young shooters and tried, to no avail, to testify about what they witnessed. The Columbine investigation was closed without addressing this point and many ...
The Bank For International Settlements: Beware a Crash
December 17, 2012
Here's another example of how elite dominant social themes work. Often, these fear-based promotions are reinforced by reality. In other words, if you want to explain to people that food-scarcity demands United Nations involvement in food production, you first a ...
The Horror of the Connecticut Shooting and the Tragedy of Unresolved Massacres
December 17, 2012
It is almost impossible to write about the horrible shooting in Sandy Hook because of the age of the little ones who were shot. One wants to weep looking at so many innocent faces of now-dead children. But what if the narrative is a false one? What if there is ...
Now Reuters Opinion-Maker Endorses National Socialist Economics
December 14, 2012
This excerpt from an opinion piece posted at Reuters entitled "Ethical economy: A tale of two half-centuries" was written by Edward Hades but it could have been written by any one of a number of people functioning within the power elite orbit. It is exactly wha ...
Shock: Onion Takes Aim at Official 9/11 Story
December 14, 2012
Holy Batman! The satirical Onion website has just posted an editorial entitled, "Ho, Ho, Ho! 9/11 Was An Inside Job!" We are very surprised to see this sort of article at the Onion, as we long ago gave up on this website as a site that was as predictable as it ...

Now UN Wants to Control Tourist Behavior … For the 'Greater Good,' of Course
December 13, 2012
Did you know there was a UN World Tourism Organization? It may not seem like such a big deal but it shows us once more how ubiquitous world government is getting and how vast the resources are behind the United Nations. As with ALL UN agencies, apparently, a pr ...
A Dishonest Article about US Army Suicides
December 13, 2012

Two-Track Corporate Justice Is Not the American Way
December 12, 2012
The bottom line here is that the crooks are NOT caught. Bear in mind as a libertarian paper, we don't buy into any of these pseudo crimes. Money laundering, drug buying, regulatory transgressions... none of these have anything to do with natural law. They are a ...
Satirist of Drones Arrested by NYPD
December 12, 2012
There are two problems with the arrest of Essam Attia. The first is that the police apparently went out of their way to arrest him. Thus the NYPD is applying the law unequally.The second problem is that what Attia is doing is satire and is thus a legally protec ...
Power Elite Bans Classic Books in US, Seeks Exclusive Narrative
December 11, 2012
Fahrenheit 451 and other books about censorship got it wrong. The powers-that-be don't want to ban books, they want to ban STORIES. This is the inescapable conclusion for those of us who believe in directed history. Over the past decade of covering the world fo ...
Another Meme Sours? EU Peace Prize Generates Continued Debate
December 11, 2012

Kidnapped Doctor Rescue Was Probably Black Op After All
December 11, 2012

Great Examiner Article on Copyright, Buried Lede on Staffer's Firing
December 10, 2012

CIA Takes Over Pentagon
December 10, 2012

Is It Peak Water Yet? Another Phony Meme
December 10, 2012

Doha Didn't Do So Well But the Elites Will Surely Strike Again
December 10, 2012

EU's Directed History Grinds On
December 07, 2012

What Orwell Didn't Know About Elitist 'Scum' Villages
December 07, 2012

Der Spiegel Explains the Directed History of Middle East
December 07, 2012
It is amazing to watch what we call directed history at work. This Der Spiegel article perfectly encapsulates how the power elite first establishes and then inculcates its dominant social themes. In this case the dominant social theme, increasingly, is that a w ...
South Africa Vanishes With Its Gold?
December 06, 2012

Military Times Explains Why US Targets Afghan Children
December 06, 2012
War is a cruel and ugly business. The longer it continues, the worse it gets and the more apt atrocities are to become accepted and even justified. Now US Marines appear to be justifying the killing of "enemy" children. The frustration is palpable and one can, ...
Electronic Handcuffs: More Warnings From Law Enforcement …
December 06, 2012

Rising Taxes Part of Elite Global Strategy?
December 05, 2012

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
We reported just yesterday on Anonymous's attack on Syria's Internet facilities. Soon we expect Julian Assange to organize a wider data dump of Syrian secret memos. Just kidding ... not. Actually it's already been done. Look at this, from WikiLeaks.org: Today, ...

Yuan Reserve? We're not Betting on It
December 04, 2012
CNBC tells us that the Chinese yuan could soon overtake the dollar as the world's reserve currency. It's a common perception because China has expanded so rapidly over the past 40 years. China has truly experienced a great leap forward, though we're on record a ...

Please Explain About the Petrified Wood
December 04, 2012

Forbidden to Mention Foreign Currency in Ukraine Now
December 03, 2012

Kabul Bank Shows Us Afghan War is for Control Not Resources
December 03, 2012
The collapse of Kabul Bank can certainly be seen as a metaphor for the larger Afghan War. The idea was always to inflict Western style regulatory democracy on Afghanistan. This seems ever clearer in hindsight. You can see a previous article on the subject here: ...
Contrived Chaos in Egypt as IMF Considers Withdrawal of US$5 Billion
December 03, 2012

Goldman Takes Over the World?
December 03, 2012
Free-Market Analysis: Here's another meme, in our view. It's one we've fought against for a long time. It is the idea that Wall Street and private enterprise generally are malicious and ought to be confronted by government and heroic politicians. That's the dom ...

Free-Market Thinking Advances in Britain
November 30, 2012

India Fights the Criminalization of Shared Property
November 29, 2012
Patent is not copyright but increasingly the two are being treated in much the same way these days. Both terms are expressions for law enforcement efforts to control what we can call "shared property." The problem, especially in the modern era, is that shared p ...
Mind Control and Mass Murders … the Truth Will Out?
November 29, 2012
