SEC Hopes to Trim Computer Investing?
March 23, 2012
As predicted in these modest pages, the US Securities and Exchange Commission is now taking aim at computers and trading. The proximate cause of the probe is the so-called Flash Crash in May 2010, when stocks fell hard and rose rapidly without an identifiable c ...
Central Bankers Gather in Fearful DC Huddle
March 23, 2012
It is all falling down about their heads and now they are meeting in Washington DC, fearfully, to try to decide what to do next. Nothing the money printers have done has stemmed the growing, global depression. But they have to do something. The system itself se ...
Bernanke's Banking Misdirection
March 22, 2012
This is surely a dominant social theme – that banks can be seen as healthy due to so-called stress tests. The whole idea is that the paper money reserves held by banks must be adequate to surmount any larger financial downturn. Of course, the exercise is kind ...
The Psychopathology of 'Tim Tebow Time'
March 22, 2012
In a previous article about Tim Tebow we wrote pointed out that sportswriters are the worst of the mainstream breed, almost like lemmings. But since we wrote that article in October 2011, things have gotten much, much worse, mostly because the fascination with ...
The Insanity of Carbon Capture
March 21, 2012
Imagine that someone proposed to freeze oxygen and store it below ground in a semi-solid form. Imagine that this was supposed to be turned into an industry. Imagine that people pursued oxygen with butterfly nets, so that you had plenty of "capturers" running ar ...
Bernanke Fights Back Against a Gold Standard
March 21, 2012
Ben Bernanke has come out forcefully against what may be seen as a burgeoning support for a monetary gold standard in the financial community and among the alternative media. This is newsworthy, because it begins to show what the power elite REALLY thinks about ...
Central Banking Was Responsible for 2008 Meltdown – Nothing Else
March 20, 2012
Following the 2008 global economic crash on an almost day-to-day basis, as we have, we've regularly made the argument that it was caused by central banking monetary inflation and that its result is bound to be the eventual demise of the dollar reserve system. W ...
Libertarian Truths and the Big Lie of Peak Oil … Now Confirmed?
March 20, 2012
There is no doubt the elite dialectic is shifting. Used to be that the mainstream media faithfully reported the meme that world was running out of oil, and this was later refined into the Peak Oil meme. Now, thanks to the Internet, the powers-that-be are hastil ...
Hush-Hush Congressional Research Report: The Myth of Social Mobility … Not
March 19, 2012
Here's a big myth: US social mobility is fungible and anyone can grow rich. Now a report from the Congressional Research Service has found that income inequality in the US is extreme and growing worse. Also, that where you're born, socially speaking, is where y ...
Schwarzenegger's Horrible UN-Backed Sustainia Project
March 19, 2012

NYT – India's State-Run Banks Founder
March 16, 2012
One of the big elite promotions in the past five years or so has been, in our view, an outpouring of prose celebrating the efficacy of state-run banks and "public" central banks. In this New York Times article, we see that India's state-run banks are having a g ...
The World Is Running Out of Water … Again
March 16, 2012
Another day, another elite scarcity meme. Once you know how the elites are operating, it becomes almost ludicrously easy to spot the propaganda. We do it all the time ... as a kind of public service, though goodness knows there are plenty of others within the a ...
Is Goldman Resignation Part of an Elite Plot?
March 15, 2012
Hoo boy. Here's what we really need: New "Pecora Hearings." We have no doubt that's what all this fuss is about and why Goldman is being pilloried once again. It's a deliberate hit job of sorts. But it's so compelling – and people hate the system so much – ...
New Wall Street Hearings Redux: Now It's JP Morgan's Turn?
March 15, 2012
ZeroHedge is carrying an analysis (see excerpt above) of this weird open letter that has just been posted on the CFTC website. The ZeroHedge mavens castigate the letter writer for likely being a phony. In other words, the allegations may be correct – as they ...
Is Regulation Good for You?
March 15, 2012
This article posted over at governing.com is an interesting one. It is written by Dr. Mark Funkhouser, a former Kansas City mayor and auditor, who is the director of the Governing Institute. It focuses on the "big picture" of regulation, which is that while pri ...
Photo Signifying End of the European Union?
March 14, 2012
The UK Telegraph has posted a photo of Jean Claude Juncker, head of the group of 17 eurozone finance ministers, strangling his Spanish counterpart, Luis de Guindos. Sometimes photos are extraordinarily revealing. Does this one mark the end of the EU, or at leas ...
Does the Market Really Want 'Smart Meter Version 2.0'?
March 14, 2012
All right, here we go. Smart Meters aren't doing so well these days. But it turns out, like the soldiers hitting the beach on D-Day, there are troops in reserve. The "free market" rolls on, as we can see from this report in the UK Telegraph. Is all as it seems? ...
The Rare Earth Meme – Another Scarcity Hoax
March 13, 2012
Rare earth elements are not rare. You can count on it. Oil is not rare. Food is not rare. Water is not rare. These are all dominant social themes – scarcity memes – fear-based promotions of the power elite. The idea is always the same. Manufacture the perce ...
Elite Promotion Rolls On – Are BRICs the Hope of the World's Future?
March 12, 2012
The power elite and its controlled mainstream media continue to "talk up" the BRICS – Brazil, Russia, India, China and South Africa. This is a swelling dominant social theme and one that bears watching because the powers-that-be will do anything to continue t ...
Economist Mag: Japanese Disenchantment With Government Leads to Rise of … Corporatism
March 12, 2012
The Economist magazine, being what it is, is always astute and never accurate. Its writers, as we have pointed out many times, finally analyzed the inception of what we call the Internet Reformation and then promptly attributed it to social media. The idea of c ...
Cost-Benefit Analysis – Another Questionable Meme
March 09, 2012
This is an interesting little article because it actually manages to compound the regulatory "problem" with yet another faux-facility: cost benefit analysis. The conflation of these two concepts – regulation and analysis – adds yet more confusion to a marke ...
Fed Saves the Day by Sterilizing Money
March 08, 2012
Another day, another power elite dominant social theme. The more we study monopoly-fiat central banking, the more shocking it becomes. Now we are hearing once more about monetary sterilization as a "tool" in the Fed's arsenal. What these reports (see above) rea ...
Stanford Conviction Re-Emphasizes Regulatory Questions
March 07, 2012
One of the areas that we've often commented on is the inability of regulatory democracy to work as advertised. Now (if reports are to be believed) it turns out that Allen Stanford was running a Ponzi scheme with about US$7 billion of customer assets. It also tu ...
Private Enterprise Is Deadly to Archeological Sites?
March 07, 2012
This is an elite meme we've been meaning to point out for some time. The Western world's power elite never sleeps when it comes to finding ways to reinforce the idea that government and non-profit efforts are good and private enterprise is bad. The idea is to e ...

March 06, 2012

More Evidence Emerging that Balochistan is Afghan's New War Front
March 06, 2012
So Balochistan is next on the hit list? It wasn't enough to destabilize the Ivory Coast, Tunisia, Libya, Egypt and Syria – now Balochistan, too, must be converted into a raging inferno? This is the idea we're getting anyway. We DO believe that the US, the Sta ...
ECB Blows Up Europe? Creates 'Super-Immune' Elite Bonds … Throws Credit Market into Disarray
March 05, 2012
We have often written the goal of the Anglosphere power elite is to create a worldwide depression on the way to one-world government. They are seemingly well on their way to doing that using the power of monopoly central banking, which they seem to control. Thi ...
Next Neocon War? 'Free-Balochistan' to Split Pakistan in Two
March 05, 2012
Ever since the war to remove the Taliban/defend against Islamic terror/civilize Afghanistan/free Afghan women/create democracy in Afghanistan/remove drug agriculture from Afghanistan/support civil society among the Pashtuns/reason du jour/etc. began to turn aga ...
Clues Left in Obama 'Birth Forgery' on Purpose?
March 02, 2012

Now Global Warming Turns Seas to Acid – World Bank Is Ready to Step In
March 02, 2012
Sometimes elite dominant social themes are very easy to spot. A plus B equals C. It seems like only yesterday (actually about a week ago) that the World Bank announced it wanted to take over the world's oceans. And now, here comes Bloomberg with a scientific st ...
Central Banks Now Operating as One Global Monopoly?
March 01, 2012
It is a much denied fact that what may be called a New World Order is continually being developed at the highest reaches of power. But what is less well known is the amount of coordination already developed between the facilities that provide the engine for glo ...
Internet Reformation Rolls On? … Now Ireland Vote Seen as Threat to EU
February 29, 2012
What the heck are the Irish up to now? Nobody else is going to have a referendum on the European Stability Treaty! It's the last best hope to keep the EU solvent and to knit it into one happy nation like the US. You know, the Germans said it was unconstitutiona ...
Get the Economics Right and Everyone Can Be Rich?
February 28, 2012
Ambrose Evans-Pritchard has much to recommend him – despite being a prominent mainstream journo. Almost alone among his peers he's been relentlessly hard-headed about the EU and even China. He's made good calls. His analyses are often thought provoking and ac ...
WikiLeaks 'Controlled Opposition' – Right Leaks at the Right Time?
February 28, 2012
From what we can tell, WikiLeaks released a few hundred pilfered emails recently and in return received about 2,000 separate write-ups in major publications. Gee, that's ten major write-ups for every email, perhaps. PR men are blushing with envy. They work week ...
Eminent Scholar: EU Will Survive, not Countries
February 27, 2012
Say what? The EU's "problem" is that the top Eurocrats are not kicking enough ass? The EU needs MORE governance? Heck, from what we know, the top EU honchos have yet to have their "empire" officially audited even once in the past decade or so. That's right ...
New Elite Meme? … Dialectical Parallels Between Jesus Christ of Nazareth and Genghis Khan of Mongolia
February 27, 2012
In the depths of the Internet, we have come across several articles explaining not only that Genghis Khan was the logical successor to Jesus Christ, but that the two may even have been funded by the same Money Power. One such article is entitled, "The Glorious ...
In Europe and America … No Retirement! Just Sufferin'
February 24, 2012
This is historic stuff. The end of Dreamtime, folks. We keep hearing one of George Carlin's last video clips playing over and over in our pointy heads like a bad rock 'n roll song. His soft, angry voice recites all the ways the good people of the American middl ...
Happy New Year! Iran War to Start by March 20th?
February 24, 2012
Whoever Daisy Luther is, she (apparently a "she") has written a couple some good – libertarian-oriented – articles on what seems to be a fairly new blog (perhaps she's been around longer than we know). The one we've excerpted, above, clearly states the case ...
No Retirement: Misled Baby Boomers May Die at the Office
February 23, 2012
There are 78 million boomers, and apparently they are not going to retire. Does anybody notice an irony in this? The dominant social theme of retirement has been one of the most pervasive of all elite memes. Never has any group of people been subject to more pr ...
The Conversation of Freedom Is Not Jewish
February 22, 2012

US Fed as Credit Card and Consumer Watch Dog! …
February 22, 2012

Elites Blow Up Greece on Purpose?
February 21, 2012
Germany continues to push the Greeks to the brink. For a publication such as ours that tries to analyze elite dominant social themes, the maneuvering is interesting indeed, though the cost is one of blood, tears, agony and death. Which is why when commenting on ...
How the Hell Does the Dow Break 13,000?
February 21, 2012
In a number of articles now, we dealt with the idea that the economic statistics were being manipulated in the US to try to ensure Barack Obama's re-election. How does something like that happen? Well, you have to assume that there is a powerful elite that dire ...
EU's Prodi Admits Leaders Knew Euro Would Cause Ruin but Hoped Political Union Would Follow
February 20, 2012
This is an insightful article but as we can see from this excerpt (above), the leaders of the EU knew quite well that putting the euro in place without commensurate political and military power was bound to cause problems. This is only common sense. Those runni ...
Political Correctness Watch: ESPN Editor Fired Over 'Chink in Armor'
February 20, 2012
What in the world is going on? The last we looked, the US was directly or indirectly involved in about six shooting wars, threatening a regional (world) war with Iran and the nation's president has recently asserted that the US has a right to kidnap and torture ...
The Anti-Freedom Movement States Its (Worst) Case? … Austrians Vs. the Illuminati
February 18, 2012
Social credit entrepreneur Anthony Migchels has authored a screed at HenryMakow.com entitled "Proof Libertarianism is an Illuminati Ploy." He also thanks a fellow who has often provided controversial feedback here at the Daily Bell, "Memehunter." We don't doubt ...
Central Banks 'Good', Ron Paul 'Bad'?
February 17, 2012
Recently, the National Review Online responded to libertarian Congressman Ron Paul's criticism of central banking. Why anyone would want to defend central banks is beyond us, but Ponnuru, a leading young conservative thinker has taken on the task. The US is the ...
BBC: Let's Kill the Internet and Start Over
February 17, 2012
It is clear to us by now that the Anglosphere power elite is increasingly desperate to shut down the Internet any way it can. This article posted at the BBC is a good example of the elite's pursuit of a sub dominant social theme within the context of this aim. ...
Gold Standard Good? … or Another Power Elite Meme?
February 16, 2012

Eisenhower and the Aliens
February 16, 2012
We have long pointed out that one of the elite's dominant social themes is the idea that aliens are involved with Earth, as an Internet search on "Daily Bell" and "alien invasion" shows. This fear-based promotion is helpful to the Anglosphere power elite becaus ...
