The LIBOR Scandal Is a Sham Engineered by Central Banking Elites?
July 05, 2012
We've written two articles about the LIBOR scandal and yet we haven't had a bit of impact! How surprising is that? Well ... not very surprising. Nor are we surprised. The Internet Reformation is not based on individual revelations. It is a process not an episod ...
Rolling Stone Channels Steinbeck With Story About the US Declining Middle Class
July 05, 2012
Another farcical story from the Kingdom of Farce that has resolved itself gradually into a magazine called Rolling Stone. Is it well written? Sure. Is it moving, even heart-wrenching? Absolutely. Then, you may ask, why is it farcical? Because it does what media ...
Poison of Neo-National Socialist Public Banking

Alexa Is Nuts: Our Best Days Are Now
July 04, 2012
The Daily Bell just had two of our biggest days ever but you wouldn't know it from Alexa, the Internet decider of record that is truly a nutty facility. Last month we received 17 million hits, down from our record of 24 million earlier in the year, but that's b ...
Madame Lagarde Prolongs the Pain
July 03, 2012
Funny, you would think that private enterprise makes money, but not according to the International Monetary Fund and Christine Lagarde. Lagarde wants the US government to do more. This is an evident and obvious dominant social theme of the power elite for whom ...
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
With the Supreme Court's decision to validate major parts of "Obamacare," the paradigm of Western medicine is more firmly enshrined than ever, and thus the behavior of its component parts is even more important. What has happened under the current system is tha ...

June 28, 2012

The Most Important Meeting in the World … Again
June 28, 2012
Stephen Leeb is worried about the state of the world and has piled all his hopes on some sociopaths meeting today and tomorrow in Brussels. We use the word "sociopath" only to point up the lunatic determination it takes to claw oneself into a position of power ...
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
Our raving friend is back. He's the nutter with the obsession about Greenbacks and the CIA. We've already reported rebuttals to the idea that US progenitors of "Greenbackerism" and other paper money strategies have links to US intel, but on he goes ... calling ...
Could You Make It Up? … World's Oldest Bank Gets Modern Bailout Worth Billions
June 26, 2012
Every day we slap our (admittedly low-slung) brows and let out whistles of amazement. The latest reason: It seems the world's oldest private bank is in need of a government loan. Once upon a time all banks were private, even the ones that belonged to the ruler. ...
Condoleezza Rice's Authoritarian Fantasy and Her CBS Enablers
June 26, 2012
This is an article (along with a video) that reports on former Secretary of State Condoleeza Rice's determination not to be the vice presidential candidate for the Mitt Romney GOP campaign. But halfway through the article, the text takes a really weird turn tow ...
Leaving the GOP for the Wrong Reasons
June 26, 2012
Michael Stafford has decided to leave the GOP, and his article has attracted attention by no less than David Frum of the Daily Beast who chronicled Stafford's leave-taking by quoting a good bit of Stafford's article and posting it at the Beast. Frum didn't add ...
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

How Central Banking Keeps People Helpless and Undermines 'Preppers'
June 22, 2012

With Economists Like These, Who Counts on a Recovery?
June 21, 2012
It makes one want to throw up his hands and cradle his aching head. Here is Professor DeLong, who once served as a Clinton-era deputy assistant secretary of the treasury for economic policy, writing an entirely nonsensical editorial. The only hopeful sign is th ...
Leading Global Warming Advocate Recants! … 'Models Fail Dramatically …'
June 21, 2012

On the Vineyard, Secret Service Partied Like Rock Stars: The Psychopathology of Government 'Work'
June 21, 2012
The Secret Service is much in the news for their partying ways. But to be shocked at the behavior of the young men and women in the Secret Service is perhaps to betray a naïveté about the way government really works. In this article, we'll try to shed some li ...
Back to the Future … Millennium-Old Thaler Seen for Northern EU as Elite Dream Dies?
June 20, 2012
As the EU continues to unravel the idea of a Northern EU complete with its own currency seems to be becoming more feasible. Top mainstream journo Ambrose Evans-Pritchard is doing a good job of keeping us up-to-date on the desperate proposals floated by various ...
BRICs to Create Own 'Currency'?
June 20, 2012
We missed this one but Forbes did us the favor of reporting on it. The BRICs are apparently considering creating a kind of basket of currencies that would be "aimed at containing crises such as the one roiling the eurozone." This is not exactly a "new" currency ...
Fed Lies Unravel … Bank Board Gave US$ 4 Trillion in Loans to Its Own Institutions
June 19, 2012
Quantitative Easing. Operation Twist. Discount Window. The mavens at the Fed have so much jargon at their disposal. Not anymore. This is really simple to understand – see above. Fed board members gave trillions to their own banks so the would survive the cris ...
Washington Times Explains What Ron Paul Supporters Can Learn
June 19, 2012

Are You Kidding? SEC Now to Supervise US Ratings Agencies
June 18, 2012
The SEC couldn't regulate a paper bag. It was set up in the 1930s by global elites to give the appearance of a Wall Street cop without providing the reality. It's part of Washington's larger dysfunction and is only notable because of its brief, which is to appr ...
Georgism was a Fabian Policy?
June 18, 2012
This is a very interesting article that has been posted around the web but caught our attention because it frankly makes the case that both Georgism and Social Credit – now making a timid comeback – are facilities of Fabianism. The Fabian Society believed t ...
Bank of England Proposes More Counterfeiting
June 15, 2012

Goldman Ponders the Possibility of World Depression
June 15, 2012

Germany's Backing of Redemption Pact Signals End Game for Europe?
June 14, 2012

Economist Portrait of Insider Trading Judge Trivializes Contradictions
June 14, 2012

Nothing But a Full Union Will Do …
June 13, 2012

Thanks, Mavrodi … Monetary Psyop Now in Full Bloom?
June 12, 2012
Mavrodi ended up in prison, but when he came out, he started a series of "legal" Ponzi Schemes. They were legal because he admitted to them up front. People invested in them at their own risk. And when they collapsed, people couldn't claim they'd been tricked. ...
Rand Paul's Misguided Endorsement Shows Us Where Freedom Begins
June 12, 2012

Cutting the Budget is Bad? So Says the Bipartisan Policy Center
June 11, 2012
This article in The Fiscal Times is a bit strange because it doesn't seem to come to a conclusion about upcoming automatic cuts by Congress. We will, though. The Fiscal Times is a project of billionaire Pete Peterson, a Wall Street mogul who is surely a scion o ...
Did Jefferson Davis Work for Money Power? … Was the Civil War a Gigantic False Flag?
June 11, 2012
Greenbackerism's devotion to the myth of Abraham Lincoln as a benevolent and wise individual who stood up to Money Power has been extensively debunked by such free-market historians as Thomas DiLorenzo. He's written several persuasive books on the subject and b ...
Thump … Thump … Disastrous Financial Tax One Step Closer
June 08, 2012

Rand Paul Endorses Mitt Romney, Shows Us the Difference Between Father and Son
June 08, 2012
Rand Paul endorsing Mitt Romney is a bit strange. We question the necessity and we are interested in the reasoning. On the surface, to us it doesn't make much sense. But on a deeper level it illustrates the differences of vision between father and son. This art ...
Directed History of Syrian War?
June 08, 2012
It is surprising to see what we call directed history at work. From Tunisia to Egypt and then Libya and now Syria, Western powers are manufacturing pretexts for wars and toppling governments. Syria is the next to go but probably not the last. They are working t ...
The Madness of Market Euphoria
June 07, 2012
Or are they? Europe is failing, China just cut interest rates and US markets moved up hard on a hope and a prayer. The hopeful prayer was that Ben Bernanke would cut interest rates – or that he intends to. Why this would cause the Dow to climb some 300 points ...
The JOBS Act at FreedomFest: Jump-Starting Wealth?
June 07, 2012
What is a public market? It's whatever (mostly US) regulators say that it is. But now, for the first time in about 75 years, public markets are undergoing an evolution. The evolution, it would seem, is spelled "JOBS Act." Recently, Daily Bell Chief Editor Antho ...
Wisdom of Regulators? … Systemic Risk Group Formed to Supervise Wall Street
June 06, 2012
So a new group will do what Wall Street won't – bring sanity to finance! Or will it ... Imagine, however, that a group was formed to provide oversight to the risks undertaken by, say, the auto industry – or ... cruise lines. Wouldn't this be seen as overrea ...
