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 ...
'Blind' Fed Owns More US Treasuries Than China – Ruining Fixed-Income Policy Gauge
March 06, 2012
Merk Funds' Axel Merk just issued a commentary in which he points out, astonishingly, that the Fed "now owns more U.S. government debt than China." The ramifications are immense. Merk has founded several currency funds during the decade and has been, from time ...
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
While we have always believed that President Barack Obama was controlled by the larger forces of the Anglosphere elite, the apparent forgery of his birth certificate raises even more questions. Now, it is possible that Obama, one of the most powerful men on the ...
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
Memehunter and Anthony Migchels have again attacked libertarianism (and DB) over at HenryMakow.com. But by introducing a historical perspective (Memehunter is the actual author), they're actually challenging the roots of a conversation that goes back millennia. ...
US Fed as Credit Card and Consumer Watch Dog! …
February 22, 2012
A close friend of ours just received a promo advertising a "Marriot Rewards Cards." She was surprised to find, upon reading the "terms and conditions," a note suggesting a visit to a US Federal Reserve website that would educate her about credit cards generall ...
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
The American Spectator, an often truculent, right-wing publication that sees American enemies everywhere in the world, is out with an article on an impending return of a gold standard. (See excerpt above.) The article focuses on gold-standard prescriptions of " ...
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 ...
IMF's Disastrous Neo-Keynesianism Is 'Groovy Idea,' Says TNR
February 15, 2012
The socialist John Maynard Keynes is once again having an impact on world finance, according to The New Republic, a leftist "thought" magazine. The New Republic is yet another mouthpiece for the Anglosphere power elite, like the Economist, New Yorker and Weekly ...
As Predicted, CIA-Sponsored Muslim Bros. Becomes Enemy
February 15, 2012
In a series of groundbreaking articles (beep, beep, alert: self-promotion ahead!) we established in numerous articles over the past year that the Anglosphere power elite was using the State Department and the US military to overthrow secular Middle Eastern and ...
Now EU Kicking Spain Out of EU?
February 14, 2012
Yesterday we asked whether the European Union's attack on Greece was intended to drive that country out of the EU or merely assert dominance. Today we ask the same question about Spain. (See article excerpt above.) We decided when it came to Greece that it was ...
Krugman Promotes False 'Conservative' Meme
February 14, 2012
Columnist Paul Krugman of the New York Times is out with another one of these strange articles on "conservatism." While this article seems to be critical of conservatism, Krugman (a socialist New York Times columnist) actually revels in conservatism. Not only t ...
Is Greece a Sacrifice or the Shape of Things to Come?
February 13, 2012
Ambrose Evans-Pritchard makes good points in this article on Germany's attack on Greece, but to us it's a kind of dominant social theme. The idea is to blame Germany's leaders for intolerable austerity, and Chancelor Angela Merkel in particular. But from our po ...
Does the UN Plan Full-Spectrum Domination?
February 13, 2012
The New American has posted an article focusing on the renewed United Nation's "green" push. We covered this at the beginning of February in an article entitled, "Now UN Plans to Guide Nations' 'Best Practices' Around the World." You can see it here: Now UN Pla ...
Mr. Goldberg Apologizes for His Mises/Phone Booth Crack?
February 10, 2012
Many years ago, conservative pundit Jonah Goldberg lost his temper and wrote that Lew Rockwell (of LewRockwell.com and Mises.org) and his libertarian colleagues could fit into a "phone booth." Not so fast. Today, those who have a lively interest in Austrian fre ...
The Hopelessness of Insider Trading Prosecutions
February 10, 2012
Insider trading is important to prosecute, we are told, because it makes the markets less "fair." Someone with access to information that someone else doesn't have is taking advantage of those people and somehow making a profit at their expense. This "law" has ...
Elite Media Downplays Austrian Economics by Building Up MMT
February 09, 2012
Another day, another attempt by the mainstream media to marginalize Austrian economics. We're using the Economist article (excerpted above) as an example but in our view this is a powerful elite dominant social theme. How does the article marginalize Austrian e ...
Atlantic Misleads With 'Short History of Money'?
February 08, 2012
Here's how we figure this article "went down" ... "Hi, David, you're a contributing editor at Wired, a former Fulbright journalism fellow and a winner of the 2011 Oregon Arts Commission individual artists fellowship. You're a real bright guy and we're intereste ...
Truth About Afghan War Failure Is More False Flag?
February 07, 2012
This is a weird article. Apparently, Davis, the author (see excerpt above) has claimed it will cost him his career. But we have a hard time believing that the US military did not in some sense know the article was coming and that there is more to this "whistleb ...
Economist on India Central Banking: Financial Illiteracy on Display
February 06, 2012
Central banks should be free. That's the dominant social theme the Economist magazine is pounding home today in this article. Too bad the Economist's entire premise is a mistaken one. And that would surely come as a surprise to some ... though not to many who r ...
HSBC Laundering Billions?
February 03, 2012
Jerome Corsi better hire pretty good security. In Georgia, a lawsuit that Corsi has helped promote seems close to knocking US President Barack Obama off the ballot due to questions about his parents and whether he is US "natural born" – and thus eligible to b ...
Anonymous Attacks Intel
February 03, 2012
Anonymous has struck out at American intel, as the above AP story excerpt seems to confirm. Is this a trend or merely some sort of false flag – and what's the import? We think it reinforces our perception that the Internet is a process, not an episode. And th ...
