EU Bust as Internet Reformation Rolls On …
May 07, 2012
Here at the Daily Bell one of the things we are (modestly) known for is our perspective that the Internet and the information it distributes would have a huge impact on Western government and the one-world global elite conspiracy, which thrived under the cover ...
Selective Doubt at the Milken Money Conference
May 04, 2012
Michael Milken was a Wall Street legend in the 1980s when he made junk bonds into a form of popular financing. He was the black knight on a white horse, teaching Wall Street and Main Street moguls that the market itself would revalue their portfolios efficientl ...
Bank of England Draws Lessons From the Idiocy of the 2000s
May 04, 2012
So the wheel keeps on turning, even after it has delinked from the axle. Monopoly-fiat central banking is not so arcane as it used to be: It's price fixing and it doesn't work. Mervyn King can "draw all the lessons" he wants from the unrolling crisis but it rea ...
The Volcker Rule Advances
May 04, 2012
Here it comes. Another elite dominant social theme designed to support the idea that wise regulation can make a big and positive difference in the world. This is surely a promotion – as regulation can make things worse but rarely better. Regulation is a price ...
The Obama Recovery Persists At Least Until After the Election … and Then Watch Out!
May 02, 2012
Just in time for Barack Obama's re-election, as we've pointed out previously, the entire American economy is taking a tremendous uptick. We know this is so because we read about it in the mainstream media. It actually appears to us to be part of a larger elite ...
Now Bolivia Seizes Oil – Open Season on Western Assets or Something Even More?
May 02, 2012
Historical events tend to move in cycles. This is because the world seems to be in the grip of a kind of directed global convulsion leading to greater world government. We seem to be going through a radical "ism" phase again where the powers-that-be are trying ...
Almost Psychic … Andreessen Most Clairvoyant Person Since Pythia, or Not?
May 02, 2012
Marc Lowell Andreessen has always been at the forefront of the "technology revolution" and has made a lot of money by doing so. Now he is really excited about small phone-'Net technology and of course social networking. Has Andreessen lost his edge? Or is he as ...

Britain Slows in Slump
May 01, 2012
Only 100 years ago there were very few central banks in the world. Today there are perhaps 150 of them, many reporting to the main Bank for International Settlements in Switzerland. Why is this so? What has made monopoly-fiat central banking such a successful c ...
The Caro Come Down …
May 01, 2012
Robert Allan Caro once wrote a brilliant book about Robert Moses, who is a seminal planning figure in modern America life. The book Caro wrote about Moses is justifiably celebrated. In it – and Caro writes exhaustively long books – Caro shows clearly how an ...
Building the Private Warfare State
May 01, 2012
What we call the Internet Reformation has given us a good perspective on how the West's military-intel-industrial complex foments conflicts and then monetizes them. We've watched the efflorescence of the "long war" in Africa and the Middle East – supposedly s ...
Austerity Staggers, Germany Blows Up?
April 30, 2012
Here's another winning analysis from UK Telegraph columnist Ambrose Evans-Pritchard, in our view. As spectacularly wrong as he was about Spain avoiding a collapse (and we called him on it then, months ago) so we think he's correct about the demise of austerity ...
India Falters? Global Depression On Tap?
April 30, 2012
There is a big argument in the Western world, and especially in the US and Britain over the issue of public versus private monopoly-fiat (central banking) money. In this article excerpted above we can see that one of the top countries where the central bank is ...
Canada Introduces Plastic Cash – Say, How About Trying a Little Gold and Silver?
April 30, 2012
Used to be that money was at least in part gold and silver, circulating as gold and silver or as bank notes that represented gold and silver. At the height of the free-banking monetary experiment in the US, both before and after the Civil War, money circulated ...
Let Mitt Romney Be Romney and the US Shall Be a Better Place
April 30, 2012
An argument could be made that US President Barack Obama is typical of the kinds of rulers that the modern power elite is trying to install around the world. Bloodless, calculating, shrewd and cautious (in an unctuous and ruthless way), Obama is the kind of lea ...
Spain's Collapse Is No Little Thing
April 27, 2012
Is Spain beginning to collapse and, perhaps, the EU with it? For well over a thousand years, Spain has been at the epicenter of Europe and its fate has provided a bellwether for Europe's larger situation. And whither Europe goes, so goes the West. The S&P downg ...
Chile Worries About Potential Argentine Military Provocations
April 27, 2012
The southern half of South America is bracing for an Argentine devaluation. People are readying for the worst. Last time it happened was more than ten years ago, around the turn of the century. It wasn't pretty then and it won't be pretty now. It could cause si ...
Taxpayers, Don't Let Them Fail! Spanish Banking on Brink …
April 26, 2012
Once again the cry goes up to preserve the banking sector. Is this necessary? In a free-market economy such failing institutions would shut down of their own accord. But that's not the way it works in the modern world. This is too bad because propping up such e ...
Transformational President Romney – Not!
April 26, 2012
Romney is not going to be a transformational president. Let's make that clear right away. But this squib of an article that has received wide play on the Internet makes that case anyway. One would have to be almost willfully ignorant to make such a statement, ...
VIDEO: A Rainbow for Obama
April 26, 2012
So ... this photo is all the over 'Net – the rainbow at the wingtip of Air Force One. We've had trouble all along with this Obama-as-messiah thing, and believe it to be a kind of meme. That is a dominant social theme of the elite, a theme having to do with th ...
Is the Euro Slowly Dying?
April 25, 2012
Quietly, the euro may be dying. Or at least the top men in various countries may be taking steps to create room for its removal. We can see from the above excerpt that various nations' monies are now being invested locally rather than abroad. This is a signific ...
Is the Tea Party Waning?
April 25, 2012
This article from the Economist – a full-fledged mainstream mouthpiece – predicts, hopefully, the demise of the Tea Party movement in the US. But those who run the Economist and hope for world government should be careful of what they wish for. The Tea Part ...
The Trap Is Sprung … Obama as East-West Savior?
April 24, 2012
What we have here is what we've long anticipated, the end of one war and the beginning of a resurgent Barack Obama who may act as a peacemaker between East and West. This analysis is speculative in the extreme and even "conspiratorial." But it is borne of watch ...
Crime Is Up Worldwide, UN Intends to Provide a Solution
April 24, 2012
This is one of the oldest and hoariest of elite memes. It is the idea that only government can protect individuals from crime. It is an elite meme because elites have always warred against the middle class – and thus has throughout history created environment ...
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

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." ...
