Don't Let Doha Die, Pleads Columnist
May 09, 2011
The private sector creates the products with which the world trades and ultimately it is the entrepreneurs and business leaders that will determine how they are traded. Such massive talk fests as Doha only obscure this fundamental truth. Perhaps that has been t ...
Will Bin Laden's Death Justify More War?
May 06, 2011
The Telegraph's truculent war columnist Con Coughlin is in full cry post bin Laden. Our point regarding the al-Qaeda chief's demise, made yesterday, was that the West had designed it in order to quit Afghanistan " with honor." The probably false death of bin La ...
Silver's Bubble Has Burst?
May 06, 2011
The doomsters are at it again. Every couple of months either silver or gold are in a "bubble." This is a fundamental misreading of the current bull market in money metals that probably still has three or four years to run - at least. If it gets that far. We're ...
Bin Laden Episode End of Empire? – Top US Official Says 9/11 Was an Inside Job
May 05, 2011
We are on record as doubting that Osama bin Laden was killed on Sunday, as we believe he has been dead for years, but we also speculated about what might be the result - and why the US might want to pretend that bin Laden had been "tapped" by Navy Seals. One ob ...
Greek Loan Extensions to Punch Hole in EU?
May 05, 2011
The EU is reaching a deal with Portugal on a "bail out," which is illegal under EU rules (but who's counting?) What's more important is an upcoming, potential Greek debt restructuring, which is also illegal under EU rules. It doesn't make sense to us, and in th ...
Doha Dies Well-Deserved Death?
May 04, 2011
One of the big myths about Western capitalism is that the powers-that-be have negotiated and honored free-trade agreements. In fact, the West functions with managed trade agreements, which are a good deal different that free-trade agreements. The so-called Doha ...
World's 'Elders' Claim All Is Well in Ivory Coast
May 04, 2011
The "Elders" have struck again. The Elders are a self proclaimed group of wise men that includes Jimmy Carter, Kofi Annan, Archbishop Desmond Tutu and others. Nelson Mandela is an honorary elder, apparently. Presumably he had the good sense not to get directly ...
Warren Buffett Does a Disservice
May 03, 2011
Warren Buffett is at it again, talking down gold and the Telegraph is reporting on it: "Gold really doesn't have utility," the 80-year old told shareholders at Berkshire Hathaway's annual general meeting. "I'd bet on a good producing business to outperform some ...
WikiLeaks Nuclear Bomb Story Preceded Osama Death
May 03, 2011
What are the odds that WikiLeaks would release an Osama bin Laden nuclear bomb story only a week before his putative death at the hands of American Navy Seals? We have long pointed out that WikiLeaks is probably some sort of Anglo-American intel operation and t ...
UN Strong-Arming Little Sri Lanka Is World's Biggest Untold Story?
May 02, 2011
The United Nations is increasingly being used by the Anglo-American axis in the Great Game of world domination and if one understands the strategic reality it is truly a disgusting scenario. The UN is increasingly functioning as a kind of beard for Western mili ...
Spain, Struggling With Weak Economy, Raises Taxes, Attacks Business
May 02, 2011
We can see how the socialist government of Spain continues the fine recovery of that once great country. Greece's socialist government is using satellite technology to count untaxed swimming pools. The socialist government of Spain intends to place the large th ...
Fed Press Conferences Will Fail to Ease Reformers' Frustration
April 29, 2011
What we see, based on these new Fed "press conferences" is that the Anglosphere power elite still does not have any idea about how to counteract the disaffection people have with the current system and to stem the tide of the 'Net Reformation. This does not bod ...
Obama Appoints Petraeus CIA Director – Triumph of Style Over Substance
April 29, 2011
The promotion of General David Petraeus to head the CIA seems to us something of a triumph of style over substance. The Afghanistan war, so far as we can tell, is not going exceptionally well and Iraq, as we reported recently, is liable to lapse back into viole ...
Europe Faces Double Dip?
April 28, 2011
This informative little article in the Telegraph gives us a glimpse into the market itself as regards the three PIGS that are in the worst trouble. "The yield on two-year Greek debt passed 25pc for the first time, while yields on 10-year debt climbed further ov ...
Ivory Coast Failing Coup Marks End of Colonialism?
April 28, 2011
The mainstream media brought the Ivory Coast story to a successful finish after the "strong man" Gbagbo was "dragged" out of his "bunker" (basement) by French troops who handed him over to Ouattara 's forces and then pretended they had nothing to do with his ca ...
Double Dip Done on Purpose?
April 27, 2011
The world did not simply arrive at this place by accident. The central banking economies of the West – themselves deliberately put into place – caused the great economic meltdown of 2008, with which the world still struggles. But additional policies having ...
EU Rigor Tested As French Turn Against Immigration
April 27, 2011
So the French political leaders are finally reacting to the discontent of the larger French electorate with various EU programs. As a publication tracking the dominant social themes of the elites and their successes and failures, we find this an extraordinary t ...
Ivory Coast Revolution Runs Into Civil War Realities?
April 26, 2011
Michel Rocard, former Prime Minister of France and a former leader of the Socialist Party has penned an article (excerpt above), in which he has expressed relief that since the French "did their job well" civil war in the Ivory Coast has been averted. Below we ...
IMF Taps China as #1 Power, Roubini Disagrees
April 26, 2011
We're not sure the IMF believes its own projections. We surely don't believe that China can spend its way to wealth either, no matter what Roubini suggests. Central banking and fiat money has created a mess not just in the West but around the world, and the Chi ...
Eurocrats' Immovable Rigor Over Debt Restructuring
April 25, 2011
It would be funny if it weren't actually happening. Senior officials, reports the Telegraph, from both the IMF and the European Central Bank plan a two-day "lightning visit" to Greece in early May. The purpose of the visit is to ensure that Greece will further ...
Book Fraud Happens to PC Publishers
April 25, 2011
We long ago concluded that there was something funny going on in the book industry. How else to explain the millions lavished on Bill and Hillary Clinton for their big books (heavy anyway) that we have NEVER SEEN IN A SINGLE PLACE outside of perhaps a library a ...
Council on Foreign Relations: 'Free-Markets Need Our Help'
April 22, 2011
It is always amazing to see how this priority infects almost every aspect of the Western dialogue as conducted by its intelligentsia and has turned mainstream western media into a gigantic echo chamber that repeats the same conclusions over and over again in cl ...
US Military Theatre Expands Again
April 22, 2011
Large political structures that are built without the buy-ins of their populations tend to be fairly fragile entities with short lifespans. Western elites were doing much better in the 20th century than the 21st in terms of this buy-in. More and more, the escal ...
21st Century Investing NOT Business As Usual
April 21, 2011
There are great challenges ahead. Investors who understand how to navigate them - and who also understand the potential price action of gold and silver - may do very well over the next five to ten years. The markets themselves in the narrowest sense of the word ...
West Takes Over East
April 21, 2011
Initially it took a kind of sleuthing to figure out what was going on as regards Middle Eastern and African turmoil. Rising food prices were part of it. But just as significantly, Western powers-that-be had decided on a wholesale military takeover of the Middle ...
Dollar Replacement Beat Goes On … and On
April 20, 2011
This article from CNN comments on an editorial that just appeared in the Financial Times, which like the Economist magazine, tends to enunciate the positions of the Anglo-American power elite. It confirms our suspicions once again that Western elites have in mi ...
Idea of Turning Africa Into China Unraveling
April 20, 2011
The 21st century is not the 20th. It is far more difficult for Western powers-that-be to surreptitiously promote power politics in Africa and elsewhere. Even the policy of "lifting up" states such as Japan and China and industrializing them is beginning to foun ...
The BRICS Take Over
April 19, 2011
Ultimately perhaps the BRICS will build the New World Order that the Anglosphere seeks. But once it is fully constructed, it will become clear who runs it. And it won't be the BRICS. One might surely believe in Madsen's perspective but we would argue that it do ...
Western Wars Are for Oil?
April 19, 2011
The dominant social theme that Anglo-American wars are primarily aimed at exploiting raw materials is being trotted out again. While Britain has been engaged in an extensive post-mortem of the Iraqi war called the Chilcot Inquiry, these secret documents were no ...
More Nails in EU Coffin?
April 18, 2011
There is yet a hammering sound surrounding the EU. Some say it comes from those who are busy building a box in which to contain the region's endless sovereign debt crisis. Others might be persuaded the box is the EU's coffin. The distinction is important not on ...
New Elite Approach In Ivory Coast – the Clenched Fist
April 18, 2011
Not long ago, the former president of the Ivory Coast, Laurent Gbagbo was forced out of the presidential residence at gunpoint. The new president, Alassane Ouattara is going to take up residence after repairs. That's about all that's clear right now. Most every ...
US Is Broke, Failing, But Show Goes On
April 15, 2011
In his recent speech, US President Barack Obama pledged to pare the projected deficit by $4 trillion in the next 12 years, and to raise taxes on America's wealthiest Americans. His presentation was reported seriously and gravely by the mainstream media that mus ...
France Expects to Wipe Out Oldest Profession
April 15, 2011
In a libertarian society, many of the current wars (such as the war on drugs) would be seen as unnecessary. People could do as they pleased so long as they did not hurt others. But despite the literally millions pages of documentary evidence that shows laws tha ...
John Boehner, A Wide-Eyed Radical … Not!
April 14, 2011
John Boehner may believe he can temporize now but there is a price. Tomorrow the very fabric of the nation may come under threat. This is what Boehner should really be worrying about instead of the impact of government shutdowns and the ramifications of debt-ce ...
Silent Coup: UN Takes Over Africa?
April 14, 2011
In the modern age, with the power elite pressing hard for world government, it is sometimes difficult to note turning points, but the more we see of the tiny Ivory Coast affair the more we tend to believe this is another watershed moment. It is truly a big deal ...
Shrinking Greatness of Congressional Budget Cuts
April 13, 2011
The Wall Street Journal and other mainstream US financial publications are in full cry about the greatness of the recent historical Congressional budget deal that supposedly reverses decades of spending. It's a kind of dominant social theme in fact: Big Governm ...
Do Iraqis Know Something the Pentagon Doesn't?
April 13, 2011
Either the US gets out of Iraq or Iraq goes up in flames. That seems to be the message in this article. What is the larger import? The grim US military-industrial complex meme that the war in Iraq was worthwhile because of the tyrant it toppled may be toppling ...
EU Heart Attacked by Mainstream Press!
April 12, 2011
The elite is now in a place where ANY setback is considerable and illustrates to the millions who are awakened that its grip is slipping. Because the secrecy is gone, all the elite has left is an aura of desperately cultivated invincibility. This is the final w ...
Ivory Coast Resolution Turns Into Neo-Colonialism
April 12, 2011
Now that former president Laurent Gbagbo has been captured by his rival Alassane Ouattara, the mainstream media is predicting a return to normalcy for the Ivory Coast. It is no doubt hoped by many in the West that Hillary Clinton's specific warning shall encour ...
IMF Plots Role as World's Central Bank?
April 11, 2011
Can you hear the whispers coming out of the shadows? Over the past months, we have covered the IMF's increasing efforts to position itself as the world's future central bank and one-world currency issuer. We can see from the above article in Reuters - a chief m ...
Little Iceland Panics Big Banks
April 11, 2011
The Icelanders are at it again, irresponsible and unwilling to take up their burden. The wrath of the modern world shall surely be visited upon them. Yes, reluctantly, the Dutch and British must sue. If the verdict is not appropriately punitive and Iceland's ha ...
EU Dominos Tumble Toward Spain?
April 08, 2011
The question is whether Spain will proceed down this path. We recently reported on an analysis of a Telegraph article that argued Spain would avoid the fate of the "PIG" (Portugal, Ireland and Greece). The Guardian argues otherwise. First there is the economic ...
NATO and the US Quietly Winding Down Afghanistan?
April 08, 2011
This is a startling article as it seems to proclaim that after nearly a decade of irradiating Afghanistan and killing women, children and elders in order to "purge" Afghanistan of its 100 or so Al Qaeda, both NATO and the US Military-Industrial Complex have had ...
Pakistan's Problem Is Britain?
April 07, 2011
The UK Telegraph is often a good read. But occasionally you run into stories such as this one by Ed West who is a young columnist for the paper. Just to make sure this column was not an aberration, we checked his archive. Sure enough it was littered with column ...
More Global Judicial Activism, As Hague Court Awaits Kenya Killers
April 07, 2011
Even as the violence afflicting the Ivory Coast gradually wends its way to the inevitable ouster of former president Laurent Gbagbo, there is yet another international drama being played out in Africa, where Kenya's has just sent mass killing suspects to the Ha ...
EU Wants Own Bonds?
April 06, 2011
Not much of what is going in the EU is being reported in depth by Western mainstream media, especially not in America. Yet thanks to the Internet, the issues involved with the EU have likely never been clearer and the activism more organized. Hannan's increasin ...
Ivory Coast Violence May Not End With Ouster of Gbagbo
April 06, 2011
Have the French done it again? French President Nicolas Sarkozy (left) has taken France in a new and more bellicose direction recently, and the results may not be positive either for France or the countries it has helped attack. In Libya, France has helped crea ...
EU's Unraveling Preps Global Currency?
April 05, 2011
The footsteps of a global currency grow louder? That's one way to look at this report from the Economist Intelligence Unit. We don't believe for one moment that after spending trillions on unification, reorienting Europe's entire politics toward support of the ...
Buy the 'PITS' for Big Profits!
April 05, 2011
The analysts at Goldman Sachs are always coming up with acronyms that receive worldwide play. (Imagine being introduced at cocktail parties as the person who came up with this or that globally recognized acronym. What an icebreaker.) Anyway, why should they hav ...
Tax the Rich Before Society Explodes?
April 04, 2011
Gee, this is a blunt piece that Paul B. Farrell has written for MarketWatch. It is part of a larger theme on which he's elaborated in several columns, apparently. His perception is that the Super Rich (whoever they are) and the GOP are laboring under what he ca ...
