EU Unraveling – Now It's Holland's Turn
April 23, 2012
Like some kind of rolling contagion, the insolvency affecting the Southern PIGS is spreading northward toward the supposedly solvent part of the EU. Now it's Holland's turn. We learn that austerity hasn't been a soft sell in Holland any more than it has been in ...
Germany Stands Athwart the European Crackup Shouting 'Stop'
April 23, 2012
In another article today we discuss the impending dissolution of the Dutch government over the issue of EU-imposed "austerity." There is no social consensus in Holland currently to cut the deficit back to the three percent demanded. Four or five percent is prob ...
Taxes vs. Fed – What's to Blame?
April 23, 2012
The above article excerpt would seem to put the "fiscal versus monetary" argument into perspective. It is an argument that, in our view, defines the modern state and what's "gone off the rails." Are taxes too high? Is that the reason for so much insolvency in E ...
Is the Case Against Megaupload Coming Apart?
April 23, 2012
We along with many others questioned the original premise when this occurred. The US justice system – really, the West's – has increasingly imposed punishment before the crime is confirmed, and the shutdown of Megaupload was only the most recent example of ...
Spain Bans Cash
April 20, 2012
They are not even making a pretense anymore that the West is run via market economies. As we have long predicted, the phony "sovereign debt" crisis in Europe is being used to justify all sorts of authoritarian measures. It is government pols that gladly borrowe ...
Huge Water Resource Found in Africa: World Bank Steps In?
April 20, 2012
We've charted this elite meme for several years – water scarcity. The powers-that-be create fear-based scarcity promotions and then propose globalist solutions. Water scarcity is a big promotion for them – and this meme is a central one these days. Right on ...
Does the CDC Tell the Truth About Vaccines and Immunizations?
April 20, 2012
The vaccine wars are heating up and now the US Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) has stepped in to let us know that measles is on the rise. Should we believe it? Once we would have without question. Even the name of the CDC inspires confidence an ...
BIS: Asian Central Banks Are Pretty Good!
April 19, 2012
What kind of snow are they eating in Switzerland? Monopoly private/public central banking has been a failure wherever it has been tried. The reason is very simple. Those who are in charge of printing money don't ever know how much to print. As a result they alw ...
Time Magazine Predicts Many Cars to be Unaffordable by 2025
April 19, 2012
We've been tracking the Western war on cars and this article in Time magazine raises the offensive a notch. The idea is that by making cars electric, you limit range and utility. But this article suggests that cars simply will be legislated out of existence for ...
Is the Vaccine Industry Beginning to Fail?
April 19, 2012
It began as a tiny drip-drip-drip when one of the Kennedys got angry and claimed in an article that vaccines had health consequences. And then there was the sad saga of Dr. Andrew Wakefield, who had the temerity to link autism and gut disease to vaccines. You ...
The Illuminati Strikes Again: April 19th and 20th Are Fraught
April 19, 2012

Occupy Wall Street Sees Merit in Current Tax System?
April 18, 2012
This article from Dissent magazine was also carried by Truthout, which is a leading alternative media news source, though one that focuses on a leftist interpretation of modern events. The point the article makes is an interesting one and once more confirms our ...
UN's International Baccalaureate Program Under Attack in NH
April 18, 2012
There is a public debate going on in New Hampshire over whether or not to ensure that the UN's International Baccalaureate "Programme" does not have a long tenure in New Hampshire colleges and universities. The New Hampshire House has passed HB 1403 that promot ...
Bequest of Chicago Free-Market Boys is Chile Violence?
April 17, 2012
Are the Chile Dam protests symptomatic of deeper dysfunction? There are plenty of reports of protests over the dam that the Chile Supreme Court just approved (see excerpt above). These don't give the full impact of what's at stake given that there is not one da ...
Did US Expect Taliban Attacks?
April 17, 2012
The news today is all about Australia leaving Afghanistan earlier than planned, or so Australian Prime Minister Julia Gillard says. But there are several crosscurrents taking place in this still-continuing war. While "allies" are deserting NATO – others have ...
IMF Exploits Euro-Crisis to Create Global Money Power
April 16, 2012
Almost unnoticed, the world's leaders now speak in terms of trillions rather than billions (or millions) as they used to, and the IMF and central banks are leaders in this trend (see above excerpt). The goal of the elites running these facilities is world gover ...
TSA Creates 'Privileged Flyers' as Part of Larger Program
April 16, 2012
Is the TSA's efforts to create a privileged "flying class" part of a larger elite strategy to create a group of entitled corporate and government workers? We've written about this before in terms of "corporate cities" being developed in India and elsewhere. The ...
Debt Crisis Plotted to Deliver the Euro to the IMF?
April 13, 2012
We've long since come to the conclusion that the EU's sovereign crisis is a manufactured one. This article supports such a conclusion, in our view. One has to keep in mind the artificiality of the current economic construct. The economy of the world is run via ...
Latest Elite Meme: Autism Caused by … High Fructose Corn Syrup?
April 13, 2012
Here is a fairly predictable power elite meme. As vaccines come under more and more attack thanks to what we call the Internet Reformation, the powers-that-be are trying to find anything else to blame when it comes to rising autism rates. Thom Hartmaan is a lib ...
How the Elites Manipulate Big Stocks – and Why They're Failing
April 12, 2012
This kind of question is a kind of elite dominant social theme, no doubt about it. It frames the conversation and presupposes that the market itself is a greater good and that its growing failure is bound to be mitigated by additional success. Every time the ma ...
New 'Red Scare' … Universities Hotbeds for Un-American Activities?
April 12, 2012
The FBI has discovered that American Universities are swarming with spies. This is ironic because US Intel agencies generally have been responsible for generating false-flag "war on terror" operations that have been criticized by the US legal community. There a ...
As Predicted, Attacks on Thrive, the Movie Have Begun
April 12, 2012
As we suspected, the counterattacks have begun. We were doubtful about "Thrive" from the beginning, but liked it more once we saw it. We interviewed the movie's maker, who certainly seems sincere about it, and we said we shouldn't have jumped to certain conclus ...
Regulators Build Too-Big-to-Fail Empire
April 11, 2012
It used to be in the US that you were on your own, at least when it came to building a business. If it succeeded, great – if not, then ... too bad. But not anymore. Now there are too-big-too-fail companies that are so designated by the US regulatory authoriti ...
First Newspapers, Now TV – the Internet Reformation Rolls On
April 11, 2012
Citibank entertainment media analyst Jason B. Bazinet is in the news today. He wrote to investors that he simply cannot account for the slump in cable TV viewers. As a result, he downgraded CBS, Disney, Discovery, News Corp and Scripps from "Buy" to "Neutral." ...
Elite Psyop? Public Banking and OWS Converge to Provide Mass 'Public' Solutions
April 10, 2012
We can see from this article excerpt above, that two nascent "protest" movements are joining forces in Philadelphia. One is public banking and the other is Occupy Wall Street. We wish we could be more optimistic about either ... or both. But, sorry ... This con ...
Elites Strike Back Via Roosevelt Institute: Government Isn't Bad; It's Essential
April 10, 2012
Free-Market Analysis: The power elite is starting to get serious. At first the alternative media was nothing but a tiny nuisance, like a buzzing gnat. Later on, it was seen as an easily confused entity and numerous false flags were launched to mix up the messag ...
US Expands War on Terror to South America
April 10, 2012
South America has prospered somewhat in the past 25 years as Washington's various destabilizations have diminished somewhat – at least the overt ones like "Iran Contra." But now the "bad old days" may be upon SA once more. The war on drugs has been a big dest ...
Lincoln Must Have Worked for Money Power
April 09, 2012
The cult of Lincoln continues unabated. Now comes another movie glorifying the Great Emancipator – see excerpt above. It is a "mash up" in which several genres are combined, fictionally. This mash up was initially fiction that combined the historical Lincoln ...
Elite Meme: Anything Is Better Than Gold
April 06, 2012
We have been covering an upsurge in articles about the "gold bubble" of late. We checked online at Google and in the last 24 hours there have been over 200 articles including the words "gold bubble." Surprisingly, many of the articles are anti-gold bubble – a ...
UK Telegraph Columnist Calls for More Gov. Surveillance
April 06, 2012
Every now and then the UK Telegraph – which is surely the most free-market oriented of major British newspapers – posts a really wacky article. It's probably because the Telegraph is traditionally royalist, as well, and these trends are at war with each oth ...
Elites Destroy Endangered Species on Purpose?
April 06, 2012
The modest paradigm that animates these pages is that a power elite uses fear-based promotions to frighten people into accepting globalist solutions – answers that would not otherwise be considered. No one, for instance, gets up one morning and thinks to hims ...
Rebellion Spreads … EU Elites Have Miscalculated?
April 05, 2012
We have often written that the power elite's reaction to the Internet Reformation is one that will not be entirely successful. The suicide of Dimitris Christoulas may perhaps support this contention. We have eyes and ears (pointy ones). We have watched what we ...
Gold Collapse … the Bubble Is Pricked?
April 05, 2012
It really gets repetitious after a while. When the stock market falls, pundits don't immediately shout, "The bubble is over!" No, there are anxious meetings and grave headlines. We are to assume that if stocks fall something is wrong with the larger economy. B ...
2500 Troops … Elites Expanding Phony Wars to Australia and China
April 05, 2012
Free-Market Analysis: So America is expanding its empire to Australia. Actually, it's not really "America." From what we can tell, there is a power elite that runs the West and wants to create world government. Because of the Internet, the plans of these shadow ...
Straight From Oz: Real Reason Elites Intend to Legalize Some Drugs?
April 04, 2012
Last week we thought we detected a trend: The top elites via politicians and the mainstream media in the US were embarked on creating some sort of dominant social theme aimed at legalizing some drugs. At the time we didn't understand why this promotion would be ...
Advisors Still Can't – and Won't – Recommend Gold and Silver
April 04, 2012
One of the hallmarks of a controlled press is its regular departure from reality. The US press and the Western press generally have been departing from reality for most of the past 100 years and longer. But in the past ten years the controlled investment press ...
Western Elites Encourage Dollar Death With Uruguayan/Iran Deal?
April 03, 2012
So now Uruguay is standing up to the US – a country that could turn Uruguay into a smoldering hole in the Earth. Of course, Uruguay trades with Cuba so perhaps this is merely an extension of business as usual. But it is not just Uruguay. It is Brazil, as well ...
80% of Financial Advisors Not Recommending Facebook
April 03, 2012
Now, this is a strange and noteworthy occurrence (see excerpt above). American financial advisors are not big boosters of the upcoming Facebook IPO. Of course, we understand that. We've written an article pointing out that Facebook seems to us a kind of managed ...
US Internet Criminalization Now Pursued at State Level – Conn. Attacked
April 03, 2012
These bills are all about the criminalizing of the Internet. Now that SOPA has been pushed back on the federal front, the action is turning to the states. The idea, in our view, is to whittle away at the Internet bit by bit. Create precedent at the state level ...
The World Bank Is Hopeless and Changing Leaders Won't Help
April 02, 2012
The World Bank is a part of a kind of "tag team" with the International Monetary Fund. The World Bank lends money to dictators and sundry thugs and then when these unsavory individuals abscond, the IMF is hauled in to make the people pay. The process enriches W ...
Bin Laden Death Movie Mired in Controversy
April 02, 2012
Every time we think we are finished with the death of Osama bin Laden, we are thrust down the rabbit hole again. Surely we are not the only publication to question the death of Osama bin Laden, writing that he died long before May 1, 2011. We wrote about it her ...
Pot Calls Kettle Black! Dallas Fed Claims Banks Too Big
March 30, 2012
The excerpt above is taken from a column that "monitors" financial markets in order to hold "companies, executives and government officials accountable for their actions." OK. It's a well-written column, but it misses a main point, in our humble view. The Feder ...
Every Day a New Elitist Fairy Tale – Now 'Earth Hour'
March 30, 2012
Every time we turn around we are assaulted with another meme of elite propaganda. They are mostly fear-based, promoting scarcity themes. Today, we are being beaten upside our collective pointy (elvish) heads with "Earth Hour." We call these dishonest fairy tale ...
Central Banks Won't Produce Natural Interest
March 29, 2012
Here comes Andrew Lilico, an economist with Europe Economics, and a member of the Shadow Monetary Policy Committee, according to the UK Telegraph (see article above). The gibberish contained in the above excerpt is only magnified throughout the article. It is r ...
Assange and Anonymous As Elite Helpers?
March 29, 2012
Julian Assange wants to run for public office in Australia, his home country, and Anonymous wants to destroy the Internet, temporarily anyway. We are not surprised. The Internet is like the Gutenberg Press before it. During the era of the Gutenberg Press, the s ...
Have Elites Decided to Legalize Some US Drugs?
March 28, 2012
What's going on here? The US has jailed tens of millions in the past decade over drug infractions. But now we seem to be seeing some re-thinking. We usually speculate such campaigns are part of larger elite dominant social themes intended to manipulate public o ...
Pentagon Has No Records of Osama's Death … CIA and Admin Stonewall Requests …
March 28, 2012
As responsible members of the alternative media, we've gone on record often as pointing out that Osama bin Laden died five to ten years ago. We were very suspicious of the well-timed murder of Osama by a group of Navy Seals. Our main article on the subject, whi ...
Elites Crush PIGS – Old Game Plan Made Anew?
March 27, 2012
Did you hear that about half of Europe is in recession or headed that way? We can see from the above excerpt that Spain is certainly headed that way. Greece, Portugal and Ireland are also in various forms of economic collapse. Call it recession, depression or s ...
Stockholm Syndrome: Wall Street Execs Flog Themselves Hard
March 27, 2012
When the bought-and-paid-for mainstream media starts analyzing non-existent aggregations like "Wall Street" (see above) you can almost be sure a dominant social theme is in the works. In fact, this IS the meme the power elite is flogging relentlessly right now: ...
UN Warns Against 'Land Grabbing'
March 26, 2012
On the surface it sound reasonable, that the UN would sound the warning on private land purchases, given they are occurring in the poorest of countries and can deprive farmers of land to grow food. This is called "land grabbing." But nothing the UN does is aime ...
