Mnookin: Jail for Wakefield?
January 11, 2011
We wanted to pull away from covering the current vaccine controversy, but Time magazine has published a truly remarkable interview with Seth Mnookin, author of the Panic Virus. We want to analyze the interview because we believe it sheds a bright light on the s ...
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 ...
Transparency Meme Expands
December 27, 2010
Just the other day we wrote an article entitled, "New Elite Gambit Features 'Transparency?" In it we pointed out that "transparency" seemed to be a kind of growing sub-dominant social theme. We presented Bloomberg's lawsuits filed against the European Central B ...
China Shows Elite Hand
December 24, 2010
Like Hamlet, the elves of the Daily Bell have spilled a good deal of ink in the past months wondering if China's leaders themselves secretly back the world-spanning plans of the Anglo-American elite; in other words if the Chinese government has been co-opted by ...
New Elite Gambit Features Transparency?
December 24, 2010
Here at the Bell, we are professional meme watchers. Understanding the fear-based promotions of the power elite, helps us in our larger quest to understand the way the world works - and even to make wiser investment decisions. In this article we will examine a ...
The Charade of World Depression
December 23, 2010
The problem of the EU seems simple, as indicated by this article excerpt above. The Southern PIGS are bankrupt but cannot devalue because of the euro contract. The wealthy North will therefore have to bail out the PIGS and in doing so, provide substantive overs ...
Success in Afghanistan?
December 23, 2010
This article excerpted above from the UK Guardian paints a positive picture of the "surge" in Western troops that is allowing NATO and the Americans to break the back of the Taliban insurgency. Truly, this would be a startling occurrence and one that would spea ...
Truth About Bigger Wall Street Bonuses
December 22, 2010
In this article we will examine the reemergent issue of paying Wall Street types large bonuses (see article excerpt above) even though the larger economy in America (and the rest of the West) continues to suffer from "the Street's" financial excesses. We shall ...
End of Military-Industrial Hegemony?
December 22, 2010
The FPI is apparently the successor to the infamous Project for a New American Century think tank that employed so many famous neocons and once called for "another Pearl Harbor" to stimulate American defense spending. One can see in the above excerpt from a sta ...
Failure of Economic Happy Talk
December 21, 2010
The Anglo-American power-elite controls the mainstream media and one way that confidence is usually restored in the system is through the kind of happy talk that writers like Brooks provide. But in this case, the Internet has provided a counterweight that has p ...
Government to Control the 'Net – Good Luck With That!
December 21, 2010
Should the government interfere with the Internet? This is a very difficult question to answer. There are so many ways to look at the problem. There are so many things to consider. On the one hand we have things to think about deeply, and on the other we have i ...
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 ...
