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 ...
Lawrence Summers Discovers a New Meme: Contingency
March 26, 2012
Lawrence?Summers, one of the most important and famous economists in the United States, has written an article about something called contingent commitments. Like most strange and mysterious phrases, this one is aimed at the usual culprit: central banking. Ther ...
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 ...
