Osama Bin Laden Is Really, Really Dead
November 22, 2012
We have written numerous stories about the "death" of Osama bin Laden because it seems to represent everything that is wrong or at least inconsistent as regards the US's military-industrial complex. We have noted in the past that the power elite that wants to b ...
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
This is an interesting article because it brings up a point about Peak Oil that we hadn't fully been aware of. We knew generally that those presenting the idea that the world was running out of oil were fairly apocalyptic but they were, nonetheless, often moder ...
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
First it was called "global warming" and now "climate change." But no matter what it is called, it is still a power elite dominant social theme. The idea is that humans are responsible for a great upswelling of heat and humidity around the world. The world may ...
What's Never Grappled With …
November 19, 2012
Janet Daley, a moderately conservative columnist for the UK Telegraph, has written a powerful article on the way Western governments are trending. There is only one thing wrong with the article, a fundamental flaw, in our view. But first, let's review the artic ...
Supersize the Committee to Prevent Fiscal Cliff Suicide
November 19, 2012
In suggesting a "Super-Duper" congressional committee, Jeff Wrase is once again reinforcing the meme that congressional compromises are necessary to the functioning of the Republic. We would argue that in this Internet era – what we call the Internet Reformat ...
Central Banking and 'The Edgy Optimist'
November 16, 2012
So Reuters is starting a new column with Zachary Karabell, the president of River Twice Research and River Twice Capital. He is also author of How China and America Became One Economy and Why the World's Prosperity Depends on It. This is surely a power elite do ...
Real Reason for Classified Documents
November 16, 2012
While it is a bit difficult to figure out exactly where Washington's latest scandal begins and ends, the seriousness of what is occurring has been exacerbated by accusations that one of the central figures had "classified material" on a home computer. The neces ...
Lloyd Blankfein: Let's All Compromise to Support the Status Quo
November 15, 2012
Here comes Lloyd Blankfein to try to make amends for his ridiculous statement not so long ago that bankers "do God's work." He's head of Goldman Sachs, perhaps the most powerful mercantilist banking firm in the world. The operative term is "mercantilist." Goldm ...
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
We've written a number of articles recently about what we consider to be the EU's directed history. It is obvious to anyone who studies these issues in this Internet era (where lots of REAL information is available) that the EU was set up to fail via the euro. ...
Is the Age of the PetroDollar Over?
November 14, 2012
For some ten years now, we've been writing that Peak Oil was a power elite dominant social theme and that the idea of oil scarcity was fraud. Well ... surprise, surprise. Turns out the West – particularly the US – is just brimming with oil. Of course, this ...
Usury or Taxes?
November 13, 2012
Ellen Brown has been building a case for public banking for years now, ever since writing about it in her book, Web of Debt. We've been in discussions with her for several years and have watched her case grow and change. Dr. Gary North has done extensive debunk ...
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 ...
Directed History: A Fact of Life?
November 12, 2012
Here in this UK Telegraph news roundup we have several nuggets of incredibly important information. The first, above, speaks to the issue of what the EU is intended to become. Angela Merkel suddenly explains what must be clear to anyone who has had the stomach ...
The GOP Crisis as Directed History
November 12, 2012
This New Yorker article provides us with a splendid power elite meme and sub-meme. The dominant social theme is clearly that a political party must "woo" a specific ethnic group by promising them a share of government largesse. The subdominant social theme is t ...
EU's Plight: Sadism or a Cold-Blooded Takedown?
November 09, 2012
Ambrose Evans-Pritchard has recycled a name originally applied to Margaret Thatcher for Brusells's Eurocrats. He calls them "sado-monetarists" – and this is an apt term for those administering monetary poison to the Greeks. But is Europe really collapsing in ...
Mayor Mike … Technocracy Is 'The Bomb'
November 09, 2012
This isn't the biggest story in the world but it is one with clear power elite memes. The dominant social theme obviously has to do with the need for government, the larger the better. The subdominant social theme is that oil is in short supply generally and ne ...
Republicans Rage as the Great Burning Arrives
November 08, 2012
Post-election, the US Republican Party will go about the business of tearing itself to pieces, as well it should. As observers of directed history here at the Daily Bell, watching the past ten years of politics presented via the prism of what we call the Intern ...
Now EU Seeks to Ban the Family
November 08, 2012
Whenever we look, we are assaulted by unbelievable legislative actions. This has got to be the most incredible idea yet: To legislate portrayals of the family out of existence. What kinds of people come up with these ideas? What kind of people vote on them? Thi ...
Democracy Won Today … Truth Lost?
November 07, 2012
We are not surprised by Barack Obama's re-election. We believe the vote was probably rigged, as voting machines across the country now provide opportunities to do just this sort of thing. Not all machines even offer paper tallies anymore. Why would states put m ...
We Told You So!
November 07, 2012
Sometimes in this business of meme tracking an article comes along that is so obvious and blunt it hardly needs scrutiny. This is one of those articles. But its candor does not exempt it from analysis. It is a kind of "best of breed" and worth commenting on if ...
The Manufactured 'Isms' of Elite Prevarications
November 06, 2012
In this article in Der Spiegel, written by columnist Jakob Augstein, we observe the meme that "isms" are different and powerful. Capitalism is different than communism, which is different than socialism, etc. We have some difficulties with this argument. But fi ...
Another Meme Crashes? … Sudden Inkling Chelation Works
November 06, 2012
We've been aware of chelation and its usefulness for several decades. While our position regarding healthcare has gradually changed, we still believe that chelation is useful. Now, apparently, the FDA will have to do the same. Here's what we believe: Strive to ...
The Solution to Unemployment Is Less Monetary Stimulation Not More
November 05, 2012
This is a hopeful article but one that leaves significant questions in its wake. One could ask, for instance, how is it that modern economies can from time to time generate such vast unemployment? And why, most recently, has this unemployment been so difficult ...
The Startling Reality of Money Power
November 05, 2012
It is not actually Britain that has been doing the invading but, apparently, the City of London. What this book doesn't tell you, or at least not the review, is the timeline of invasion. Here's a speculation: The number of invasions and their seriousness picked ...
Bank of England Reports Whitewash Central Bank Reality
November 02, 2012
News comes of the release of no fewer than three separate probes into the Bank of England's performance during the financial crisis that actually started in 2007 and expanded in 2008. The reviews do not apparently cover any of the critical 2007 area. They comm ...
Don't Conceal Your Face At Canadian Protests
November 02, 2012
Yet another erosion of Canadian civil rights. We shouldn't fool ourselves. It is tempting to think of the positives regarding this bill that mostly revolve around police provocations. There are, for instance, credible reports that Canadian police authorities ha ...
Election 2012: When There's No 'There' There
November 01, 2012
Lawrence Summers is offering up his usual recipe for a successful national economy. He seeks government involvement in all ways. Nonetheless, from a perspective of dominant and sub-dominant social themes it is instructive to deconstruct Summers's arguments. The ...
Fake Meme of Food Scarcity Is Deadly Serious
November 01, 2012
There are plenty of sub-dominant themes growing out of this main one of food scarcity. In fact, it is such a deep meme that one could compare it to a bush with many branches. A lot of these sub-dominant social themes could be classified as dominant themes thems ...
Spain: Consequences of a Generalized Depression
October 31, 2012
Sometimes dominant social themes and sub-dominant social themes are unstated instead of stated. One out of every four Spanish workers is now without a job. This is a full-fledged depression by any standard. This statistic is topped by another one, that 50 perce ...
Now Central Bankers Directly Boost Occupy Movement
October 30, 2012
What a surprise ... not! We're long on the record as explaining the essential phony nature of this pseudo youth movement. Funded by George Soros among others and putatively generated out of the socialist-anarchist publication Adbusters, Occupy Wall Street is su ...
Global Warming Meme Powers Hurricane Coverage
October 30, 2012
This Vancouver Sun article is typical of some of the coverage of Hurricane Sandy, which hit New York City and environs yesterday. It is written by William Marsden, author of Fools Rule: Inside the Failed Politics of Climate Change (Knopf). We looked up the book ...
Reporter Exposes Tax Evasion Among Greek Politicians, Targeted for Arrest
October 29, 2012
So it turns out that many Greek politicians have Swiss bank accounts and are not paying taxes due. What does this tell us about "austerity"? ... Only that it is a meme, as we have previously discussed. What is going on in Greece and elsewhere is that a small cl ...
Spain Probes Shoppers for Tax Evasion
October 29, 2012
Tax crackdowns are an emerging meme but this news, above, is especially egregious. The powers-that-be use a divide-and-conquer approach when it comes to much business and regulation. And this approach is increasing. The idea basically is to turn businesses into ...
The Recovery Meme and Why It's Just Talk
October 26, 2012
No. It's just not true. There is no real recovery in Britain or anywhere else in the world, for that matter. The banking elites that caused this rolling depression are in full cry about the struggles they are taking to cure it. In doing so, they reinforce the m ...
The Afghan War: Just the Facts
October 26, 2012
The deaths in Afghanistan, after more than a decade of war, keep climbing. Our paradigm proves itself out daily. The West is not in Afghanistan to help its women. The West is not in Afghanistan because of its mineral wealth. The West is not in Afghanistan to cr ...
Diminishing EU a Wonder to Behold
October 25, 2012
Ambrose Evans-Pritchard partially redeems himself with this article. After going through a bad patch when he loosed his inner Keynesian and inflicted it on innocent readers, he provides us with a fairly crisp perspective on the reality of Britain's stance versu ...
Drug Data Manipulation Is Merely More of the Same
October 25, 2012
We're not surprised about this only because we've lost our capacity to be shocked. These days we're surprised only if our worst expectations are NOT fulfilled. Everything – and we do mean everything – in Western culture and corporate enterprise is bent towa ...
Elite View: The Yo-Yo Economy
October 24, 2012
There are problems with Germany but the good news regarding China brings us back to emotional parity. This seems to be the gist, the dominant social theme of this Reuters article. We're supposed to be depressed about Germany but excited about China. The idea th ...
Debt Jubilees and Memes …
October 24, 2012
The idea of a debt jubilee is gaining more and more traction, as John Rubino observes (above) in a recent article posted at Dollar Collapse. Ron Holland has also just written a clear, bold article on a similar concept, debt repudiation, posted today at The Dail ...
Central Banking Premises Are Lacking?
October 23, 2012
This article at Slate illustrates the growing radicalization of the Fed conversation and also how words and premises make it increasingly difficult to discuss central banking logically. It is an analysis of whom Mitt Romney would pick for Fed Chairman if he bec ...
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 ...
Rediscovering IMF Working Papers
October 22, 2012
The Telegraph's Ambrose Evans-Pritchard has caught up to a working paper entitled "The Chicago Plan Revisited" issued by IMF staff members Jaromir Benes and Michael Kumhof. His summary: "Personally, I am a long way from reaching a conclusion in this extraordina ...
What is a Government Job?
October 22, 2012
Can government "create" jobs? Free-market types believe it is impossible for government to generate employment, though politicians claim various kinds of job creation all the time. The New York Times thinks it can. Most of the time, analysis turns on government ...
Down With the West, Long Live the BRICs …
October 19, 2012
Jim O'Neill, the Goldman Sachs creator of the term "BRICs," wants to convince us that the BRICs are not only magnificent engines of growth and prosperity but also the future of finance and investment. To this end, he attended the Telegraph's Festival of Busines ...
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 ...
