October 27, 2011
Of course, by now you know the EU has announced another "miraculous" bailout. But this article, written by one of our favorite mainstream journos, Ambrose Evans-Pritchard, shows why it won't work, can't work and NEVER WILL work. Hats off to Ambrose. Such clarit ...
Stocks Are Up – But Why?
October 27, 2011
We do believe that the stock market provides all the available price information on a given security. In fact, this is a power elite dominant social theme, that the stock market is "efficient" and gives one an accurate snapshot of where the economy is – and i ...
Overpopulation Alarmism Gives Rise to Corporate 'Sustainable Cities'
October 27, 2011
This is one of the hoariest of all dominant social themes of the power elite: Overpopulation. It is also one of the most predictably effective. When people – especially in the West – contemplate the world's total, growing population, they tend to get nervou ...
Taibbi: Occupy Wall Street Aimed at WS Corruption NOT Money or Banking
October 26, 2011

Communist China or Western Patsy?
October 26, 2011

Public Spectacle of Gaddafi's Death Signal for Expanded War?
October 26, 2011

The Biggest Fraud … Retirement Doesn't Exist?
October 25, 2011

Biofuels Run Out of Power … Again
October 25, 2011
This article (excerpted above) provides us with a good postmortem of the foolish biofuels industry. We knew these boondoggles wouldn't work because they didn't work in the 1970s either, the last time the business cycle turned and gave us a big bull market in me ...
Obama Channels a Wartime FDR?
October 25, 2011

Ron Paul: Buchanan or Reagan?
October 24, 2011

Anglosphere Plan to Create Islamic Crescent Yielding Results?
October 24, 2011
Nearly a year ago now we posted an article "Western Elites Secretly Still Building Islam" and we see no reason to re-evaluate this supposition. Thanks to the Internet Reformation, the Anglosphere power elite is under pressure as never before. And the best way t ...

Greek Protests Are NWO Scam?

Bernanke: Let's Not Blow Bubbles
October 19, 2011

Rothschild Banker Calls for End of Euro
