President Obama, American Citizen
January 28, 2011
One of the most persistent controversies in the US has to do with whether President Barack Obama was born in the United States. Those who maintain he is not have come to be known by the derisive term "birthers" and their argument is that if Obama was not born i ...
Davos: Leaders Float 'New Reality' Meme – Will It Work?
January 27, 2011
So the sentiment at Davos is mixed. The world converging on Davos is "weary" but warily optimistic (see article excerpt above). The "new reality" catchphrase is intended to emphasize the emergence of the BRIC countries (maybe with the exception of Russia) as ec ...
Too Tough to Cut?
January 27, 2011

Tunisia Promotion Now Failing?
January 26, 2011
A feedbacker was kind enough to send us a link to an absolutely extraordinary article by Thierry Meyssan, founder of the Voltaire Network. Astonishingly, the article solidifies most of our suspicions regarding Tunisia's crazy Jasmine revolution. ...
China's Empty Cities Are Result of UN Agenda 21?
January 25, 2011
We've covered the insanity of Chinese economic growth in numerous articles stretching back nearly two years now, but this latest news is the most startling yet. If the Telegraph is to believed (we have no reason not to), the Chinese have now dropped any pretens ...
As Predicted, Tunisian Islamists Emerge
January 25, 2011
In a recent article (Western Elites Secretly Still Building Islam) we speculated that the Anglo-America power elite was supporting Islam because the West's growing authoritarianism needed an outside enemy to ensure its global expansion. We received some skeptic ...
'Super Stagflation' End Game?
January 24, 2011
Another facile media explanation. (See excerpt above.) The Telegraph gets it half right. Stagflation is not caused by "higher oil prices" but by monetary policy. The West is about to embark on an episode of what we wil call - for lack of a better term - "Super ...
US Levels, Rebuilds Afghan Village
January 24, 2011
It has hit the Internet hard – harder than almost any other news from Afghanistan in a long time: the news that the US military had dropped 25 tons of bombs on a small Afghan village and reduced it to glazed mud. Pictures of the village, Tarok Kolache, and it ...
US Press Misfires Over China Disaster
January 21, 2011

Republicans to Cut Everything but Military
January 21, 2011

Private Alternatives to Modern Banking
January 20, 2011
There must be a need for banks and bankers. We're not surprised. We are on record as stating that one of the power elite's most critical dominant social themes is the necessity for the banking industry, including most importantly central banking. Thus it is, in ...
Internet Creates One World Order?
January 20, 2011
We have begun to notice this emergent sub dominant social theme: The Internet will bring the world together. On the surface is sounds naïve, but the academics are starting in on it, and that means an explosion of windy speculation about how the Internet will ...
'Dreamtime' Rolls Along
January 19, 2011
In this article we want to rehearse once again what has emerged on the Internet - via the blogosphere - regarding the dominant social themes of the power elite. It turns out that much of what people learned in school and from the media was a kind of fiction, a ...
The Tea Party is Process, Not an Episode
January 19, 2011
Senator Scott Brown soared like a comet in the US political firmament. He was the unexpected Republican victor in a contest for the "Kennedy" set in Massachusetts after famous Senator Ted Kennedy passed on due to a brain tumor. At the time, his victory was attr ...
End of Euro? … Ireland Prints Own Notes
January 18, 2011
Was this the week the euro gave up the ghost and the EU threw in the proverbial towel? Analyzing the Anglosphere's dominant social themes is not an easy avocation and one looks for documentable breakthroughs. We have been fortunate to find several during the ti ...
Western Elites Secretly Still Building Islam?
January 18, 2011
Is the war on terror a success? The Anglo-American elite needs an enemy if the authoritarianism that is rising in the West is to continue - because despotism (and globalism) is more easily created when there is an outside enemy. But fighting against 100 Al Qaed ...
Shock – Big Media Fault Elite Finance
January 17, 2011
Usually we present an article in the mainstream media that confirms a dominant social theme of the power elite, but in this case, we've chosen one (see excerpt above) that is not supportive of elite promotions. In fact, the article focuses on author Richard Dun ...
Tunisia Anarchy Meme
January 17, 2011
The narrative Tunisian "Jasmine" revolution has been unfolding predictably from the Anglo-American perspective. A corrupt dictator has been chased to Saudi Arabia and the "authorities" are huddled together to try to set up a government that will deliver the app ...
Perpetual War for Perpetual Employment?
January 15, 2011
Here at the Daily Bell, we remain convinced that America's serial wars have continually deepened that great country's economic crisis. And this gives rise to a peculiar dilemma that we don't usually point out, but which will be the purpose of this article. It m ...
Central Banking Tsunami
January 14, 2011
Very interesting. The economy will grow by three to four percent in 2011, according to Federal Reserve Chairman Ben Bernanke, but unemployment will remain. Meanwhile, according to Bernanke, the horrid spectre of deflation has been averted for the moment. Finall ...
The New Feudalism
January 14, 2011
A new feudalism is being born. It is a quite deliberate effort of the power elite in our view, but people don't notice it - or haven't verbalized it - because it is difficult to analyze something when one is in the middle of it. But the feudal evolution is sure ...
The China Dilemma
January 13, 2011
In a problematic global economy, China is being cast as the ultimate Asian Tiger. It is seen as challenging America from a military standpoint and even, eventually, of challenging the dollar's tottering role as the world's reserve currency. China is not doing m ...
US Pouring Billions Into Failed Afghan Projects
January 13, 2011
What is going on in Afghanistan is increasingly unsupportable. Populations and countries have their own tendencies; ultimately they revert to them. Attempting to Westernize Afghanistan, an ancient, tribal society, at the point of a gun is likely a fool's errand ...
Failing Elite Food Gambit?
January 12, 2011
We have written about how various globalist entities are seeking more authority over the world's food supply. In a recent editorial in the Financial Times, World Bank president Robert Zoellick made the case that the G20 and the World Bank – together – ought ...
Gun Confiscation Frustration
January 12, 2011
For years, the Anglo-American power elite in our view has been trying to disarm America without success. The elite has tried to ban guns slowly; it has tried to ban guns fast. It has offered up, through channels, various interpretations of the US Constitution t ...
Big New Book Treads Old Economic Memes
January 11, 2011
Dambisa Moyo first book, Dead Aid, was certainly impressive. Moyo, a woman of color with a distinguished background, was not afraid to explain how Western aid was hurting impoverished countries. Coming from such a person, the accusations carried weight, and man ...
Mnookin: Jail for Wakefield?
January 11, 2011

Elite 'Cult of the Expert' Erodes
January 10, 2011
In this article, we want to examine the dominant social theme of "expertise." This meme is much in the news these days because the Internet itself is making the elite's promotion of the "expert" increasingly untenable. Whether it is vaccinations (see other arti ...
Elite's Frustration With Meme Nullification
January 10, 2011
We watch and analyze the memes of the elite with considerable fascination. This last week brought us what we consider to be two dominant social themes that are very close to the collective heart of the elite. One was simply infuriating and the other was tragic. ...
Smart Grid and EVs Add to Surveillance Society – but We Don't Have To
January 08, 2011
Here at the Bell, we're not high on electrical cars. And the world's auto execs agree. In the website, "The Truth About Cars" we find the following lugubrious statement, "The majority of car makers the world over think that for the next five years, electric car ...
Brussels' Bogus Bank Regulations
January 07, 2011
Another day, another meme. This is one of the older ones and its reoccurrence shows us more clearly than ever that elite propaganda is neither innovative nor complex. This latest eruption from the EU, then, is no surprise. Just yesterday in an article entitled ...
Wakefield Accused of Further Vaccine Fraud
January 07, 2011
Dr. Wakefield's journey into medical purgatory continues. He initially co-authored a study back in 1998 that suggested that a link between autism and vaccines deserved further study. Since then his views have hardened. He has been outspoken about the dangers of ...
Necessity of the Plutocracy?
January 06, 2011
This perspective entirely conforms to the goals of the Anglo-American elite that wants to impress on Western middle classes internationalist inevitabilities. Freeland tries to treat the resurgence of banking wealth as an inevitability as well, but she is being ...
World Bank to Manage Food Supplies?
January 06, 2011
This editorial that just appeared in the Financial Times by World Bank president Robert Zoellick makes the case that the G20 ought to do more to ensure that people around the world do not suffer from food insecurity. It is actually a perfect example of an elite ...
Goldman Circumvents the Rules
January 05, 2011
Once upon a time, long ago, God created the earth and a little later American regulators created the "public company." They did this simply by asserting that a private company could have no more than 499 investors and investment pools (hedge funds and the like) ...
In Defense of the Insane Clown Posse
January 05, 2011
The mainstream American media – which lies for a living – had finally found an incident that definitively proved its superiority. The media, in aggregate, was a good smarter than two high-school-dropout rapper-artists that perform like minstrels-of-old in f ...
Elite on a Tightrope
January 04, 2011
In this article, we hope to show that where the US – and Europe, too – are headed has nothing much to do with business-as-usual. This is a dangerous time. The elite is unfathomably powerful yet; its injuries will make it angry. We will explore why the elite ...
Manning-Wired Controversy Heats Up
January 04, 2011
What to do with Glenn Greenwald? This openly gay columnist for Salon may be the most gutsy mainstream reporter in America, and he's in the middle of another battle – questioning Wired magazine reporters over why they will not release the transcripts they have ...
The World Is Poorer Still
January 03, 2011
The United States can print more than other countries in the world because the dollar is the world's reserve currency. After World War II, when the world was shattered, the Anglo-American axis used its predominate power to set up the current global monetary sys ...
Desperation of US Government Workers
January 03, 2011
As the Greater Recession continues to unroll across America, the issue of public service comes into sharper focus. In fact, public service in the United States is far more a reported phenomenon than an observable one. In New York for instance, the cult of the p ...
Ineffectiveness of Banking Accords
December 31, 2010
Regulation is inevitably presented as a necessary good in Western jurisprudence. One who contravenes regulations is a lawbreaker and there a variety of remedies available to the state. Unfortunately, the idea behind regulation does not seem to be based on econo ...
Banning Herbs for Health
December 31, 2010
Codex Alimentarius-type legislation continues to grind ahead. The net result of this worldwide health initiative will be to regulate and license all products that have anything to do with health and nutrition. The upcoming ban on herbal remedies in Europe is ju ...
Central Bankers Warn of Asset Bubbles
December 30, 2010
The Bell recently analyzed "Inflation Heard Round the World" - and now an article (excerpted above) provides us with similar concerns voiced by central bankers themselves. Swedish central bank head Stefan Ingves is so concerned about asset bubbles that he has b ...
The Social Networking Buzz
December 30, 2010
Social networking as epitomized by Facebook is "hot." Mark Zuckerberg, the ludicrously young inventor of the Facebook is on the cover of Time Magazine as the Person of the Year. There is even a huge, hit movie out about him. Now we learn the ever-vigilant US Se ...
Gold Is a Relic?
December 29, 2010
Tom Stevenson is an investment director at Fidelity Investment Managers, and the point of view he takes is a traditional one in this article, excerpted above. The argument that Stevenson makes is certainly what might be considered a normal or "20th century appr ...
Anarchists Are Bad People?
December 29, 2010
The hoary anarchist meme is being trotted out again. What we can see from the above article excerpt is that a firm link is to be drawn between anarchism and violence. This has happened before. The last time anarchists appeared to savage the West was around the ...
Inflation Heard Round the World
December 28, 2010
When the Bell began reporting on Chinese price inflation a year-and-half ago, it was unfashionable and uncomfortable news. But in fact, inflation is a BRIC phenomenon, and is not merely restricted to China. This has tremendous implications that are not being re ...
UFOs and NASA: The Meme Goes On
December 28, 2010
This is a good UFO article. The idea, generally, in our view, is to sow confusion and provide elite authoritarian institutions with the opportunity to further emphasize their global roles. The fear factor, as AOL itself notes (without offering a larger explanat ...
Brownian Schism
December 27, 2010
This Saturday the Bell posted a column entitled The Rise of Brownianism, which focused on Ellen Brown and her ideas regarding the government issuance of money (versus third-party entities such as the Federal Reserve). This was not perhaps quite fair to Stephen ...
