Hey, We Told You So! … Bank of England Head Demands Immediate and Far-Reaching Bank Reforms
July 17, 2012
We've been tracking this dominant social theme for more than a year now. The elites that want to run the world are focusing clearly on a replay of 1930s Pecora Hearings that gave us public markets, "self-regulatory" organizations and the SEC, CFTC, etc. For som ...
Pew Study: Great News! … YouTube Reports Tap the Mainstream Media
July 17, 2012
So Pew has discovered YouTube news. This means two things. One, the quality of honest news is going down on YouTube. Two, mainstream news is now becoming popular enough on YouTube for Pew to mention it. Pew was founded by oil company heirs but like almost ...
Iceland – Mighty Mite or Green Lapdog?
July 16, 2012
Though we've written a number of positive articles about Iceland, we're rapidly getting over the idea of Iceland as a courageous "mighty mite" standing up against Europe's "banksters." Our re-thinking has been caused in part by the posturing of Iceland's presid ...
Debt Protests and Occupy Wall Street – Perfect Together?
July 16, 2012

Americans' Trust in TV Degrades Again
July 11, 2012
It is kind of funny to see Gallup's execs wondering why Americans don't "trust" television these days. Could it have anything to do with the wider disconnect between what people are told and what seems real? We certainly think so. We notice there is no dearth o ...
Merkel and Hollande – Best in the World
July 10, 2012
Reuters and the Associated Press are the two main newswires from which so many of the bought-and-paid-for media get their copy. It is hard to say which one is worse but marginally it is probably Reuters – as this article excerpted above proves once again. In ...
The Most Inspiring Article Ever on Paul Williams – and How It Crashed
July 10, 2012

Rolling Stone Channels Steinbeck With Story About the US Declining Middle Class
July 05, 2012

Madame Lagarde Prolongs the Pain
July 03, 2012

God Has Risen in a Particle?
July 03, 2012
We've written a number of articles about the electric universe because it's such an elegant theory and because the theory of gravitational physics keeps collapsing, in our view. Yes, while it surely is collapsing under its own weight and complexity, that doesn' ...
Barclays Scandal, Worse and Worse … Whatever It Is!
July 02, 2012
The Barclays scandal grows worse and worse. So here's a question: If you asked the average man on the street what the fuss was about, what answer would you get? And if you told him the LIBOR rate was subjective anyway, what would be the response? And that Barcl ...
Financial Crime Must Be Punished!
July 02, 2012
The bankers are up to no good. This is a fact and the poll referred to above is further evidence of it. Eventually, laws must be changed and hearings must be held to ensure that the financial industry is made as transparent and honest as every other part of Wes ...
Does Announced EU Deal Leave Out Critical Elements?
June 29, 2012
Jim Rogers's analysis of the "deal" that has been reached by top EU "policymakers" (excerpted above) is probably accurate. Apparently, EU leaders will now be able to lend to banks without further degrading their various countries' credit status. But why filling ...
Virologists Sue Merck for Faking Positive Results on Mumps Vaccine
June 29, 2012

The Most Important Meeting in the World … Again
June 28, 2012

EU Continues to Go Down the Wrong Track
June 27, 2012
This article asserts something that we have written about a good deal from the aspect of the European political economy. In fact, we recently quoted the UK Telegraph on the political evolution of the EU and the euro. Turns out it was both malignant and creepy. ...
Our Raving Friend: You Must Write About the Rise of National Socialist Economics! (OK, Just Once)
June 27, 2012

Could You Make It Up? … World's Oldest Bank Gets Modern Bailout Worth Billions
June 26, 2012

June 26, 2012

June 26, 2012

One World Government: Conspiratorial Fantasies or Reality Check?
June 26, 2012
Nick Cohen over at the leftist UK Observer is declaiming against political paranoia. The putative target is Julian Assange of WikiLeaks fame but the dissertation is far wider than that and basically damns paranoia generally as a response to what is taking place ...
Forty Million Houses in the US That No One Needs?
June 25, 2012
40 million houses too many ... one explanation for falling prices ... This article originally appeared in early February but is still being picked up around the web – and it certainly provides us with a shocking observation. In fact, it is worth commenting on ...
The EU … Not So Beneficial After All, but Certainly Hypocritical
June 25, 2012
All the dirty laundry is being aired now. This UK Telegraph article explains it succinctly in the above excerpt. As we've pointed out in the past, the EU exercise, especially the euro, was an exercise in cynicism. The idea was to implement a currency union, whi ...
The Carbon Charade Continues
June 25, 2012
This is a pretty incredible observation – that British politicians have no idea how they are going to attain the "goals" they voted for regarding the removal of carbon dioxide from the atmosphere. This ludicrous assertion will surely go down as a case of mass ...
Elite Orgasms in Rome: The Phoniness of Modern Leadership
June 22, 2012
