Assange Fever
December 20, 2010
It is fascinating to watch the evolution of what can only be called Assange fever. We have in previous articles theorized about how an Assange-like person could be built-up to the point where he offers an extra-national alternative to nation-states. While we ha ...
Lady Gaga Approves Repeal of DADT
December 20, 2010
We have written about Lady Gaga before, pointing out that she seemed to us to use a disturbing amount of Illuminati symbols in her music. Her videos especially, are full of military symbolism and violent sex; the longer she continues, the more she becomes explo ...
Ascension of Assange?
December 17, 2010
Here at the Daily Bell we analyze the dominant social themes of the elite and it's hard, dangerous, dirty work. It's not something amateurs want to do on a lark. There are paper cuts involved, blurry vision and even late nights. But sometimes our preoccupations ...
Struggle for the Republican Soul
December 17, 2010
Change may come to America – and even Europe – via the ballot box, but it's not going to be easy and it may even be fairly messy. Here's a question: With the American electorate absolutely punishing the Democrats and their big-spending ways, why was Congres ...
China: That Urban Empty Feeling
December 16, 2010
Even at the height of the mortgage boom in America, US builders were not erecting empty cities, were they? Did we miss something? In China, apparently they are. In our quest to present what's going on, we've documented some uncanny occurrences over the past two ...
Mayan Worship
December 16, 2010
The Cornwall Alliance, which apparently has something of a Western religious orientation, has presented an important point in the article excerpted above. The excessive worship of ancient empires, as embodied by Christiana Figueres invocation of the Mayan Ixche ...
West's Employment Dysfunction
December 15, 2010
Does the West have a free-market? From an investment standpoint, this is obviously an important question. Free-markets generate innovation, entrepreneurship and provide the creativity that keeps societies prospering and moving forward. We return to this questio ...
Truth About WikiLeaks?
December 15, 2010
There is much more in the article, and we would encourage people to read it. Chossudovsky points out that "Limited forms of critical debate and 'transparency' are tolerated while also enforcing broad public acceptance of the basic premises of US foreign policy, ...
Scarcity Memes Rev Up?
December 14, 2010
We continue to track scarcity memes. Our position has evolved along with the failure of global warming. For over a year we have maintained that its failure would make it much harder to promote food and water scarcity themes that the power elite had evidently an ...
Neil Armstrong 'Speaks'
December 14, 2010
It is increasingly obvious from a 21st century vantage-point that the 20th century was a kind of Dark Ages. As we emerge blinking compulsively into a new era of Internet information, we can see increasingly how much of the previous century was an elite promotio ...
Elite's Pathological Dysfunction?
December 13, 2010
We have written about this before but over the weekend, we noticed two significant new examples of the continuing, surprising disassociation of the elite. When we suggest disassociation, we are speaking of disassociation from reality. The fabulously wealthy Ang ...
Justice Breyer Argues for Activism
December 13, 2010
In this book, U.S. Supreme Court Justice Stephen Breyer confronts Justice Antonin Scalia regarding the much-debated issue of originalism and textualism. Scalia wants to read the words of the Constitution and conform to them as strictly as possible – perhaps u ...
CyberJustice Versus Monopoly Justice
December 10, 2010
With Julian Assange in prison, a kind of non-shooting war has broken out. The mainstream media is always careful to distinguish between corporate America and federal America, but suddenly this is not being respected. Those who support Assange are not making any ...
Carbon Marts Launch Around the World
December 09, 2010
Colonialism is alive and well. The World Bank is to encourage carbon trading in developing countries. Too bad. This will make it even harder for developing nations to grow up; and the ramifications are simple. It means more sickness, more starvation, more depri ...
NASA Arsenic Life Paper Is Fraud?
December 09, 2010
Enter the Internet as always. In the 20th century, such a strategy might have worked. It would likely have been difficult to get out the word about NASA's apparent deception. But in the 21st century, NASA is exposed in days. Redfield (see article excerpted abov ...
Is Capitalism Dead?
December 08, 2010
Is there a recovery? Do you feel it, dear reader? Deep down in 'dem bones? We don't. We've explained the reasons why in dozens of articles: The fiat meltdown of 2008 was a meltdown of MONEY caused by the Internet's ability to expose the truth of a fraudulent ce ...
Crumbling US Exceptionalism – and the Antidote
December 08, 2010
It is not so much the wars that have done America in as the length of them. And it is not 9/11 that has ruined America so much as the US's inability – institutionally – to reexamine that terrible day to find out what really happened. The problem with where ...
China Inflation Precursor to NWO?
December 07, 2010
The news from China is either worse or better, depending on whom you believe (see article excerpt above). Since we don't believe anything that comes from official Chinese sources, we may be apt to discount the views of those who speak on behalf of Chinese insti ...
Assange, Hero or Trickster?
December 06, 2010
Here at the Bell, we continue to cover the ever-growing story of Julian Assange and to ponder whether or not the entire affair is something of an elite promotion. Every day, there is something new, and this has all sorts of financial and sociopolitical ramifica ...
Attack of the EVs
December 06, 2010
We were not going to return to the subject of electric vehicles for a while, having just written about them. But elite promotional efforts surrounding electric cars are so egregious at this point that our elves simply couldn't let go - especially as the Nissan ...
The Chaos of Nation States
December 03, 2010
Is the Anglosphere losing control on purpose or despite itself? The ratcheting chaos is not in fact restricted to the West. There are problems across the globe, from South America (Venezuela) to Afghanistan, Africa and of course the Koreas where a succession dr ...
Costly Promotions of the Military
December 03, 2010
Big Science is beyond promotions, correct? We don't believe so. We think in this era of economic difficulty that those running Big Science projects are increasingly desperate. Recent announcements tell the tale. First there was the announcement that scientists ...
It's an Anglo-American World
December 02, 2010
We will use this article excerpted above to reinforce our arguments about the validity of the Anglo-American elite and where the nexus of power lies. The article attempts to downplay American involvement in bailing out Europe, and that is as it should be. The F ...
WikiLeaks Copies 16th Century Amsterdam
December 02, 2010
The UK Telegraph has caught onto the idea that there are parallels between what has come before and what is happening today. Specifically, WikiLeaks is a form of pamphleteering and we can see its antecedents in Amsterdam. There is a whiff, therefore, in this ar ...
Europe Falls Toward Enlightenment?
December 01, 2010
Let us take stock – as WikiLeaks surges around us, as great events gather momentum and hurtle toward us, or away. Events, in fact, that are occurring both quickly and furiously. Embarrassing emails about the world's greatest powers circulate the globe. Delega ...
Hiss of a Smart Grid
December 01, 2010
Like the honeyed hiss of a serpent, the article (excerpted above) gives little clue to its deadly nature. One would never know from its tiny existence what is planned. But read closely and you will see, for an instant, the ghostly, gleaming fangs of ... Smart G ...
WikiLeaks to Take on Private Sector?
November 30, 2010
We really want to give Julian Assange the benefit of the doubt. We want him to be heroic, someone who is singlehandedly turning around the authoritarian trend that is sweeping the world. We believe he could be the courageous man he seems to be. But here at the ...
Hedge Fund Predicts China Disaster
November 30, 2010
The same day we published yet another (much disputed) article about China's raging inflation, we read this in the Telegraph (see article excerpt above). We agree with much that the Hart is suggesting, and we have mentioned a lot of it. What comes across clearly ...
Inflation Bell Tolling for China?
November 29, 2010
Working with elves is not like working with humans. They tend to be scatterbrained and imprecise – financial analysis being a good deal different than toy making. So why is it we ask, that only a few "big uns" as the gnomes call us, a bunch of Swiss shorties ...
WikiLeaks: Clever PsyOps?
November 29, 2010
Is Julian Assange the rebel-with-a-cause that he makes himself out to be? We gave him the benefit of the doubt for months, and still do, but with less and less certainty. We don't remember when our suspicions became more pronounced, but (credit where credit is ...
Are There Still Differences Between the Great Powers?
November 27, 2010
Vladimir Putin makes a currency swap deal with China and then heads to Germany to propose a vast, continent-wide European union. It is inevitable, he says. It is aimed at marginalizing the US dollar and giving the world a choice of what kind of currency to use. ...
The Insider Trading Promotion
November 26, 2010
The criminalization of communication continues apace. More "insider traders" are about to feel the full brunt of US justice. It is kind of sickening, actually, to watch it play out, given what the US government chooses NOT to prosecute or even investigate. And ...
Speaking Truth to Euro-Power
November 26, 2010
We don't want to make too big a fuss about this because it is usually very hard to pinpoint a speech that will serve as history's fulcrum. We do believe, nonetheless, this could be one - it is that good. And as a bit of political theatre, Nigel Farage's impassi ...
Global Depression Just a Dodge?
November 25, 2010
Yesterday we commented on the coming Chinese economic implosion (either slowly or quickly) due to out-of-control inflation but ran into the predictable (feedback) perspective that China will be the next towering power in the world. This viewpoint will doubtless ...
Green Auto-Sales Wilt as US Gov Dumps GM Back on Markets
November 25, 2010
"Competition is a sin," said one of the richest men in the world; his approach to commerce trailblazed the ruthless, capitalist way of modern business. In fact, a tiny, intergenerational, familial Anglo-American power elite of incredible wealth runs the Western ...
What Happens When China Collapses?
November 24, 2010
Yesterday we revisited our prognostication of nearly two years ago that the Federal Reserve was on the way out in its current form - given the vituperation increasingly leveled at that institution. An institution like the Fed, set up by the powers-that-be as an ...
To Calm TSA Furor, Revisit War on Terror
November 24, 2010
The furor surrounding the TSA's enhanced security measures continues to grow and yesterday, as this article was being written, TSA personnel were pleading with the traveling public (the TSA's self-proclaimed "customers") not to protest the TSA's enhanced securi ...
End of the Fed?
November 23, 2010
So Federic Mishkin, who is a well-known economist of the Keynesian variety has realized, perhaps belatedly, that the US Federal Reserve is under attack and that the attacks are "unprecedented." This does not surprise us however (nor you), as we predicted this a ...
Murdoch's Plans for the Future of the Internet
November 23, 2010
Here at the Bell we scrutinize the dominant social themes of the elite. When we attempt to analyze Rupert Murdoch's actions we often find ourselves making guesses as to how the elite visualizes the future of the 'Net from a publishing standpoint. In this analys ...
Irish Shadow-Play
November 22, 2010
For months we have been reading articles about how the Irish, unlike the Greeks or even those in Iceland, really understood what had gone wrong. This in our estimation was a kind of sub dominant social theme, that the Irish were "good" Europeans and reasonable ...
Demise of the Politically Correct?
November 22, 2010
We have charted in the past the implosion of art as it relates to real life. One can say that art-as-abstraction is the result of photography, but how, then, does one explain the lack of realistic photography in public places? Instead one finds abstract sculptu ...
Elite Eye on Africa
November 20, 2010
All you may really need to know about the World Bank is that it apparently requires "sovereign immunity" from the countries it works with so none of its employees, assigns, etc. can be held accountable if anything goes wrong. And like its sister enterprise, the ...
Elite Scarcity Memes Failing?
November 19, 2010
Food prices are going up; everywhere we read about it. When we Googled "high food prices" recently we received 100 MILLION hits. Now there's a dominant social theme for you. The UN especially (talk about predictable culprits) has been flogging this latest power ...
NATO Sets for Long War
November 19, 2010
NATO brass are meeting in Brussels (where else) to formulate further plans to win the war in Afghanistan and reshape NATO into a kind of worldwide rapid response force that will fight on behalf of democracy wherever it is needed. We have spoken before of the em ...
What Kind of Gold Standard?
November 18, 2010
Money is being argued about again, which is a good thing. But as usual (or so it seems to us) the argument is being framed in terms of what "ought" to be done. This is a kind of promotion, a dominant social theme, whether or not one wishes to admit it. Even the ...
What Kind of Freedom?
November 18, 2010
We are reminded of a certain book when we read who is getting freedom medals from Barack Obama shortly. Warren Buffet is a kind of Keynesian socialist in our humble view, while George H. W. Bush is the former head of the CIA (as well as a former president), Ang ...
IMF's Bancor Last Man Standing?
November 17, 2010
Are all the world's currencies on a downhill slope? Is it possible that the Western elites that desire one-world government above all else are deliberately unraveling the euro and the dollar, the world's two most important currencies? That would leave the Chine ...
Chinese Statists = American Ones?
November 17, 2010
We have been covering what we believe is essentially the demise of China as it currently exists because we think inflation is raging virtually out-of-control in that big country. We know some (or even many) may disagree with our perspective and certainly the ti ...
Fed Up with Fed's Myths
November 16, 2010
Below we analyze an article (see excerpt above) that appeared in the Washington Post recently entitled "Five Myths About the Federal Reserve." Let us mention some good things, first. The article is well written, even elegant, and not over-complex. It is compose ...
Ireland and Greece Keep Decaying
November 16, 2010
For months we have read in the mainstream media that Ireland has pulled together as a country and culture and that the "austerity" it was undertaking was working. Ireland was held to be increasingly solvent and the people of Ireland (in mainstream articles) wer ...
