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 ...
The Psychopathology of Pop Hatred
April 04, 2011
One need only go on Youtube to be educated about the latest Anglo-American eruption of psychopathology, which is the almost insane hatred directed at "tween" pop stars. Of course the mainstream media has its own take. The reaction seems to be, generally, that i ...
Death by a Thousand Budget Cuts
April 01, 2011
The larger dominant social theme of the DC elites remains the same: "Governing demands compromise." John Boehner himself has become a kind of walking political metaphor for this sort of business-as-usual; and it's probably a trap he will not easily be able to g ...
Smart Grid: Edge of the Authoritarian Wedge
April 01, 2011
Smart Grid is surely a Trojan Horse for an Anglo-American power elite that is hell-bent on controlling people's lives and reducing or eliminating their freedom of choice whenever possible. It is another signature of the authoritarian state and its aggressive im ...
G20 Considers Global Currency
March 31, 2011
The outlines of the drive toward a global currency are becoming clearer in our view. We're continually surprised by how fast events are moving and how orchestrated they seem if you follow them closely. We've already reported on the International Monetary Funds' ...
Portugal Advised to Beg
March 31, 2011
So now we know, perhaps, what US President Barack Obama was REALLY doing in Brazil last week. Is it coincidence? President Obama jets down to Brazil to talk to its (formerly Communist) president and she soon announces (see article excerpt above) that Brazil is ...
Is the Stock Market a Screaming Buy?
March 30, 2011
There are times in men's lives that provide enormous opportunity for the bold. This is one of them. Buy stocks now. Buy blue chips and not-so-blue chips. Buy. Buy more. Borrow and buy. But buy. Buy, Buy Buy!Is this really the case? Are stocks really a screaming ...
Darkness of the Royal Wedding
March 30, 2011
One watches the buildup and shudders. By the time this wedding is over, people will feel more strongly about Prince William and Kate Middleton than they do about members of their own family. The coverage is just as intense as when Princess Diana married Prince ...
Is Soros's One World Currency a Leftist Plot?
March 29, 2011
We'd realized last week (tipped off by a considerate feedbacker) just what George Soros was up to; but before we had a chance to write about it the Wall Street Journal blew the story open last night by picking up a Media Research Center article by Dan Gainor en ...
Pax Westphalia Dies, Middle East Writhes
March 29, 2011
When the Anglo-American elites do something big (like destabilizing the entire Middle East with CIA-supported "youth movements") it is often necessary to follow along for a while to figure out what's really going on. Eventually the elites themselves may clue yo ...
Price Inflation Strikes South America, Too, IMF Warns
March 28, 2011
Thumpety thump thump. The sound of price inflation on the march. The IMF is worried about it; but the IMF's expressions of concern (see article excerpt above) put us in mind of the famous Lewis Carroll poem, The Walrus and The Carpenter. Both of them pretend to ...
War Thy Name is David Cameron
March 28, 2011
Oh, boy. This article in the Telegraph attempts to argue that war is actually a form of political conversation. It has not-so-artfully reversed the reality of war so that the act of violence and murder somehow becomes an expression of redemption for David Camer ...
The Struggle to Control the Internet
March 25, 2011
Two recent news stories regarding government funding of the Internet have caught the attention of the blogosphere recently. The first has to do with a grant that the US is giving to the BBC (see above article excerpt) and the second involves a plea made by US S ...
The Anglosphere Counterattacks With Elite Icons
March 25, 2011
Sometimes when one looks for emergent power elite dominant social themes they are ridiculously easy to spot. One of the most obvious, though least discussed memes of the elite, is the presentation of powerful and talented people who are backers (or part) of the ...
EU Bust-Up Seems Closer As Portuguese Default Looms
March 24, 2011
The footsteps just got louder. The break-up of the EU as it is currently constituted, is coming closer in our view, as we can see from the latest bad news involving Portugal and its potential insolvency (see article excerpt above). For us, the continued unravel ...
US Task Force Brings New Pressure to Settle With the Taliban
March 24, 2011
The New York Times and a high-level US task force (see article excerpt above) released statements yesterday (the Times actually ran an editorial) calling for a negotiated solution to the Afghanistan war. As recently reported in these modest pages, the calls com ...
EU, Troubled Titan
March 23, 2011
Germany is the largest and most powerful EU state, but the German leadership seems unwilling to subordinate German self-interest to the larger dictates of the Eurozone. Unless Germany agrees to be treated like all the rest (especially the smaller states) - and ...
Bonds and BALCO … Again
March 23, 2011
Who knows how much the eight-year investigation into whether or not Barry Bonds knowingly ingested steroids has cost? Surely millions, perhaps tens of millions. In an article yesterday, we discussed the institutionalized insanity of the Anglo-American "war on d ...
US Kill Teams Target Afghan Civilians as Trophies
March 22, 2011
The longer these wars continue, the worse it gets. Young men, taught to kill with industrial efficiency (itself an unnatural act) may eventually exhibit psychopathologies that come with the ongoing pressures of "winning hearts and minds." In truth, there is ver ...
Surprise! Britain Discovers the War on Drugs Doesn't Work
March 22, 2011
Bankruptcy has a way of concentrating minds, and Britain is near bankruptcy. The pound is not a reserve currency, so British elites cannot print endless amounts of notes/pounds secure in the knowledge that the world will be forced to absorb them for energy-purc ...
The Fed Feels So Good
March 21, 2011
The Bloomberg article wants us to believe that employment is rising, inflation is better than deflation and the Fed as an institution will know exactly when to withdraw all the extra currency sloshing around in the system. But the central unfairness that has to ...
Women Are Better Warriors
March 21, 2011
A fundamental dominant social theme of the Anglo-American power elite so far as we can tell has to do with he innate superiority of the female sex. This is a touchy subject for both men and women, but it seems to be true - and we have written about the issue in ...
Silent Coup: EU Takes Over Europe?
March 18, 2011
The EU took over Europe the other day. Did you read about it? Perhaps you know erstwhile that Lady Gaga has a brand new single out about gender tolerance, though the video itself is chockfull of Illuminati symbolism and sado-masochist violence. And, oh, yes, by ...
Green Shoots of Price Inflation
March 18, 2011
In an article entitled "Ben and Barry's Inflation Problem" we pointed out the inevitability of price inflation in America and that it might well upset Barack Obama's plans for a second term. We indicated that we thought price inflation was likely sooner rather ...
Ben and Barry's Inflation Problem
March 17, 2011
Ben Bernanke's monetary stimulation has been pervasive and ongoing; it has also been historically massive. Never before has a central bank dumped US$20-$50 trillion into the marketplace within a two year time-span as the Fed under Bernanke seems to have done. A ...
Do Western Elites Really Care About Fukushima?
March 17, 2011
Japan has called in the cavalry. Having struggled with the failing nuclear reactors in Fukushima, Japan has requested US aid and the US has responded with a panoply of high-tech solutions. Sometime today, apparently, drones will soar over Fukushima in an attemp ...
Ireland Hammered to Raise Corporate Tax
March 16, 2011
"This can't stay like this," says German Finance Minister Wolfgang Schaeuble, speaking of Ireland's fairly low 12.5-percent corporate rate. According to Agency France Press (see article excerpt above) Schaeuble claimed that US Treasury Secretary Timothy Geithne ...
Desperate Cult of Technology
March 16, 2011
Yesterday we wrote about the predilection of the Anglo-American power elite to make life as complicated and mysterious as possible. Whether it is automobiles, power plants or even "home entertainment systems" almost nothing is immune from the urge to elaborate, ...
Europe's Coming Meltdown
March 15, 2011
The just-completed deal between North and South Europe (between Germany and the PIGS, really) is apparently almost entirely one-sided and bound to inflame not diminish civil unrest as spring begins to bloom across Europe. The lines of battle are not hardening; ...
End of Nuclear Power?
March 15, 2011
Yesterday we provided something of an update on Green technology, which in some instances is not proving anymore successful in the 21st century than it did in the 1970s. We concluded by suggesting that the Green movement was more about centralizing power and co ...
Japan: The Tipping Point
March 14, 2011
All economies are similar in the age of central banking. When confronted with disasters, economic or otherwise, the first instinct is to print money (see article excerpt above). Many things in life are uncertain, but central banking is not one of them. Central ...
Why Green Is Blue
March 14, 2011
The 2000s are like the 1970s in so many ways. Then, too, Green businesses were touted as up-and-coming. There were so many "can't miss" businesses and the Carter administration funded a good many of them. But then the long recession came in and Ronald Reagan wa ...
Why Not a Global Currency?
March 11, 2011
So much of the world's economy is in flux these days. The Middle East suffers from serial color revolutions. In Europe, the euro is faltering because of the Sovereign debt crisis. Despite comforting predictions from the Obama administration, America remains mir ...
Peter King's Terror Hearings Take Over
March 11, 2011
Yesterday's hearing on radicalization of Muslim Americans brings up a larger perspective regarding what is going on in America and a close look into Western-style democracy. The incessant harping on "terrorist Islam" as presented in these US congressional heari ...
Geithner Expresses Confidence in EU Measures
March 10, 2011
Timothy Geithner seems confident that the EU will resolve the current sovereign debt crisis but we wonder if this confidence is misplaced. The Anglo-American power elite is struggling on many fronts these days as it apparently strives more energetically than ev ...
The Truth About Archeology
March 10, 2011
One of the great things about the Egyptian revolution – other than the removal of the Mubarak regime itself – is the end of Zahi Hawass' tenure as Secretary General of the Supreme Council of Antiquities. In the last decade anyway and maybe for longer no pro ...
The Unspontaneous Libyan Revolution
March 09, 2011
The United States and its allies do not want to get involved outright in Libyan warfare, or so we are told, but as we can see from the above article excerpt, the administration has plans for Colonel Qaddafi. Of course, if we peer beneath the surface, we find th ...
Break Up Wall Street?
March 09, 2011
We have noted of late the emergence of a particularly ubiquitous power elite dominant social theme: It's Wall Street's (Big Finance's) fault. This is an extraordinarily important promotion because it is intended to spare central banks from scrutiny and deflect ...
ECB Hikes Rates, Crushes Spain?
March 08, 2011
We wonder how long all this is going to last. It seems that Europe is headed toward some sort of crisis, mostly brought on by the impossibility of resolving the North/South divide. It is simply impossible to have a single central bank and a single currency for ...
Australia to Introduce Carbon Tax
March 08, 2011
Australia is apparently going to be the first or one of the first countries to put a tax on "carbon." The idea that carbon dioxide, an essential building block of life, has been subject to powerful demonization by the Anglo-American power elite is testimony to ...
Dhimmitude of General Petraeus
March 07, 2011
This article appearing in Registan.net tells us some astonishing things about General David Petraeus. A week ago, he suggested publicly that Afghanistan parents were burning their children to exaggerate injuries they'd received at the hands of allied troops. He ...
Newsweek's Hillary Problem
March 07, 2011
Tina Brown, the much feted editor of Vanity Fair, the New Yorker, Talk magazine and The Daily Beast has finally issued the first all-new edition of Newsweek. The revamped magazine - which was bleeding millions before Brown was brought in to salvage it - looks a ...
Bail Out Europe's Banks?
March 04, 2011
The German magazine Der Spiegel has turned to an American economist to bang the drums for further bank reliquification (see article excerpt above). Obviously the US$50 trillion that Western powers have apparently dropped into the world's economy has not done th ...
