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 ...
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 ...
