Central Banking Premises Are Lacking?

UN Shoe Drops on Internet Terror
October 23, 2012
So here it comes. The powers-that-be have decided that they need to track user details on the Internet to prevent crime. We've reported for a while on private justice. Why is it that proponents of the state simply assume that crime is the state's business? Actu ...

BBC Will Find the Sharpest Brits … or Will They?
October 19, 2012
The West's fascination with numeracy continues. It surely is kind of power elite dominant social theme. We've written about this before, in fact. The elites search out a certain kind of intelligence and even select for it. In our view, this is the reason for th ...
Now Mexico Bans Cash
October 18, 2012
What we consider to be the "phony" war on terror is the gift that keeps on giving to those who run our governments. The phony war on drugs only adds to the rationales for telling people what they can and cannot do with their resources. What is going on is a pat ...
BBC Deserves What It Gets
October 18, 2012
The BBC is nothing that the market itself would ever create. At once vindictive and sanctimonious, BBC culture is that of entitlement: Every Briton is forced to pay an annual stipend for the privilege of viewing the BBC. It is held up as a beacon of good taste ...
Housing Demand Is Built on Monetary Policy
October 17, 2012
So builders are busy again in the US. The Fed has been flooding the market with cheap money so we are not surprised. But there are ramifications. It certainly is a dominant social theme, however. The idea is that the economy went through a rough patch but that ...
Ms. Clinton Goes to War?
October 17, 2012

New False Flag as French Youth Supposedly Create 'Identity Generation'
October 12, 2012

The IMF Turns Tail on EU Austerity
October 11, 2012

Lance Armstrong Investigation: Not Really About Sports at All
October 11, 2012
We've written about the vendetta against Lance Armstrong before, and now the proverbial other shoe has dropped. The news is all over the Internet and presumably Armstrong will soon be stripped of various titles. It will be difficult to decide to whom those titl ...
Madness of Markets
October 10, 2012
Almost everything that appears on Bloomberg supports the idea of market failure. The animating perspective of Western mainstream media is that markets need "supervision." But rarely do we find this meme so bluntly presented as in this article excerpted above. I ...
New Lincoln Movie Is Another Obama Promotion?
October 10, 2012
As we analyze dominant social themes, we find the Lincoln meme to be ubiquitous. The idea, of course, is that transformative change comes from the state itself and those who are elected "leaders." The idea of transformative change is not restricted to "leaders" ...
IMF Solutions Reinforce Problems
October 09, 2012
The IMF is getting a good deal of play with a worried world forecast. The concern was stated in the IMF's "World Economic Report." Here's a quote: "A key issue is whether the global economy is just hitting another bout of turbulence in what was always expected ...
'Argo' – Another Iranian Fantasy?
October 09, 2012
A new movie has been launched called "Argo" that purports to tell the story of a CIA-inspired rescue of some Canadians in Iran right after the revolution. It is a true story but the larger context is questionable. The whole war on terror, as many in the alterna ...
Green Shoots Withering?
October 08, 2012
The Atlantic in its 21st century incarnation is a more predictably elitist publication than ever. These days, like the New Yorker, its editors have expanded its brief to include articles on various economic and military-related issues. But we don't find much th ...
NATO Preps Civil War in Afghanistan
October 08, 2012
According to this UK Telegraph columnist, India, Iran and Russia should be approached about supporting Kabul in its attempts to maintain a centralized government in Afghanistan. This is nothing more than a recipe for a civil war, however, and is line with other ...
Upcoming Food Scarcity – Promotion or Reality?
October 05, 2012
The volatile global climate? It's enough to make someone believe in weather control via HAARP! That's how elite scarcity memes work, after all. Say the power elite wants to create a perception of energy scarcity ... We've written about this in the past. Liberta ...
'Another One Bites the Dust'
October 05, 2012
This is a sad article posted at the Huffington Post but we have given this article a foolish and insensitive title to show how easy it is to get inured to this kind of police brutality. There is no other description for it but "brutality." Over and over – al ...
'Economies Are Not Watches and Money Flows Are Not Predictable'
October 04, 2012

Mitt Romney Wins Debate, But Not Larger Cultural War
October 04, 2012
We're trying not to become vested in these presidential debates emotionally or otherwise but it is easy to be intrigued because Obama has been such a terrible president. Watching Romney bounce up and down on top of Obama (figuratively, anyway) is like watching ...

The Unsurprising Corruption of the VA
October 03, 2012
But it will! The US government is the largest or at least most powerful patronage machine in the world. And nothing happens in politics, generally, that does not benefit one or more people at the expense of others. People act out of self-interest. In the PRIVAT ...
Central Bank Narrative Grinds On via AP
October 02, 2012

Rulers Should Unite?
October 02, 2012

Controlled Demolition of Europe Continues
October 01, 2012

Vatican Restorations Scrub Nuance From Narrative
October 01, 2012
Why would the Vatican consciously ruin the paintings under its care? Our answer to this is a cynical one that has to do with the Vatican's apparent complicity in what is evidently and obviously a one-world government. Part of the Vatican power base is seemingly ...
Death of Democracy Propagated on Purpose
September 28, 2012
Another startling article in the UK Telegraph, this one from columnist Sue Cameron. There's no dominant social theme we can determine directly from this brutal assessment of regulatory democracy. Are the larger powers behind the British Empire contemplating a n ...
Dotcom May Reap Bitter Fruits From Being a Pioneer
September 28, 2012
Rather than being cowed by his arrest and imprisonment for supposedly encouraging illegal downloads of copyrighted material, Kim Dotcom is fighting back. Really, he doesn't have any choice. He has lost his company and most of his fortune. Additionally, the peop ...
Spain Falls to Pieces, as Predicted
September 27, 2012

US Judiciary Leans Towards Disclosure Laws That Could Confiscate Electronic Assets

Fed Nostrums: Bernanke and Money Printing Have Got to Go
September 26, 2012

Evolution of the IMF Is Directed History

The Strange Case of Attack on US Mission in Libya Continues
September 25, 2012

Ben Bernanke's Fed Transparency … Transparent Ploy?
September 24, 2012
More Fed promotions; it never ceases, of course. Control money and you control society. And those "in charge" have a vested interest in ensuring the social solvency of the Fed. We were on record years ago with the idea that the Fed had lost its moral authority ...
Rest of World Begins to Catch Up to Daily Bell?
September 24, 2012

Islam Yearns for a Third Way, US Intel Will Provide
September 21, 2012
We are enjoying our stints visiting the Reuters website, which we consider to be a broad-based resource for Tavistock and Money Power generally. That is, by sampling Reuters' articles and editorials we can get a good sense of how popular opinion is to be shaped ...
Private Investigators Targeted in Britain
September 21, 2012
Jake Simons, a Telegraph writer, has penned a column expressing indignation that a former top law enforcement official was privately investigated. This is surely part of a larger British trend toward lawlessness. We use the word in a different context, though. ...
More than Ever the NFL Reflects the Dysfunction of US
September 20, 2012
We are not quite sure why the NFL seems to provide us with a kind of US Passion play but it does. We've explored this subject in the past because of the NFL quarterback and Heisman Trophy winner, Tim Tebow. Just search the 'Net for "Tebow" and "Daily Bell." We ...
Was QE3 Too Much Too Soon?
September 19, 2012
Once again, the mainstream sets the debate when it comes to central banking. Here is Reuters configuring the conversation in terms of the desired dialectic. The question is not whether central banks have the right morally or even legally to print trillions of d ...
Britain Must Lose Its Chains
September 19, 2012
