Frauds of WikiLeaks?
February 10, 2011
WikiLeaks in our estimation becomes an evermore-obvious charade, and Julian Assange its conductor. We've been writing about it for months now, and each new leak raises our suspicions. None of the leaks with the exception of the first – a damning video of Amer ...
$20-Trillion War Costs Bankrupting US
February 09, 2011
Paul Farrell, a columnist for MarketWatch (see above), reports what has been presented here as well: Perhaps 50 percent or more of America's annual, governmental spending is war-and intel-related. Add up related veterans' benefits, foreign and domestic bases, c ...
CIA Launches PR Push
February 09, 2011
Another yelp of discomfort from America's massive intel community. The 21st century has not been especially supportive when it comes to Washington's 16 separate spy agencies and the decade-old Homeland Security behemoth that now squats malevolently in the middl ...
US Unemployment Approaches Reality?
February 08, 2011
We are glad that the terrible unemployment that America is facing has subsided. This is what happens when the vital energies of the most innovative country in the world are challenged: American citizens respond magnificently. The country's largest, dynamic corp ...
Happy Birthday Ronald Reagan
February 08, 2011
Anyone who lived through the 1980s Reagan era in America probably remembers the "aw shucks" charm of the great man as he smiled his way through absolutely unequal presidential debates with a humble grace. The palpable sense of despair that gripped the US back t ...
West Builds Islam to Create a New War?
February 07, 2011
The US military industrial complex is in trouble and needs enemies. China likely won't do as necessary commercial relations with the West militate against its perception as a world-class enemy. Also China is Westernizing in a way that radical Islam will not. Of ...
Homeopathy Attacked by Big Pharma Supporters
February 07, 2011
Big Pharma has apparently found another target: homeopathy. After relentlessly destroying Britain's Dr. Andrew Wakefield for his temerity to suggest that there might be a link between vaccines and autism or other childhood injuries, homeopathy has now come unde ...
Central Banks Now Creating Hyperinflation?
February 04, 2011
The decision of Jean-Claude Trichet to ignore rising commodity prices by keeping interest rates low in the Eurozone, may mark the final decisive failure in the latest disastrous central banking cycle. If money velocity continues to rise, one might fairly accuse ...
History Is Being Produced, Not Made
February 04, 2011
The analysis of Haaretz Daily (see excerpt above) is the standard one in today's Western media. Various large societal and economic forces are colliding in the Middle East and elsewhere and thus history is "being made." Here at the Daily Bell, we have expressed ...
Economic Dreamtime Unravels
February 03, 2011
"Double-dip!" was the cry from some observers, "Don't panic!" the call from other quarters, including, to no one's surprise, the Government. The question is, does the GDP figure merely show that the coldest December in 100 years took a deep, but temporary toll, ...
New Revelations Show WikiLeaks Psyops
February 03, 2011
Months ago, long before others began arguing the case, the Daily Bell made the groundbreaking argument that WikiLeaks and Julian Assange in particular were a kind of psyops. Recent revelaitons have only help confirm our view - and others have come around to it ...
IMF Is Solution to Global Crises – Strauss-Kahn
February 02, 2011
It is fascinating to watch world events unfold through the prism of the Internet. In this AFP article (excerpted above), we can see clearly how Dominique Strauss-Kahn, one of the more brutal and obvious functionaries of the power elite, intends to capitalize on ...
Middle East Dreamtime
February 02, 2011
We want to make it very clear that in this article we are not making light of the many sacrifices the courageous people of the Middle East for freedom. Now that Egyptian President Hosni Mubarak has indicated he will not again run for office, the protests have g ...
Goldman Sachs Whistles Past EU Graveyard?
February 01, 2011
Jim O'Neill is the chairman of Goldman Sachs Asset Management and he believes the Eurozone is healthy enough (see article excerpt above) to carry on. For us, this may constitute a dominant social theme of sorts. The Anglo-American elite, which helped create the ...
Is Middle East Freedom the Bush Legacy?
February 01, 2011
Here at the Bell, we analyze the dominant social themes of the elite; Elliot Abrams who wrote the article excerpted above provides us with an excellent example of the use of what we refer to as the Hegelian dialectic. Who is Elliott Abrams? Among other things, ...
'Buy the Dow' While the US Wilts?
January 31, 2011
Is it really time to put more money into the stock market – especially blue-chip stocks? Sure the multi-nationals are doing a bit better, but despite all the talk of a global world, the dirty secret of America's dominance remains the dollar reserve system. In ...
Specter of Islam Spreads
January 31, 2011
In our view, these governments would tend toward a stronger Islam over time. In part, the West attempts this sort regime change to further create the illusion of resurgent Islam in order to buttress its own war on terror. The war on terror is a ruse that allows ...
Fall of Saudi Arabia to End Dollar Reserve System?
January 28, 2011
We don't believe any of this. What if all of this turmoil is in a sense being controlled or guided by Western intelligence? What if the ultimate goal is the destruction of Saudi Arabia and the dollar reserve system? Yes, what if the idea is to break the linkage ...
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
The arguments are finally joined, and we shall see if American democracy is actually able to effectuate anything other than more spending and higher indebtedness. The arguments go farther than the debt ceiling of course and include military spending as well. US ...
US Panel Blames Banks for '08 Meltdown, but not Central Banks
January 26, 2011
The draft report says "dramatic failures of corporate governance and risk management at many systemically important financial institutions were a key cause of this crisis." It also points to "stunning instances of governance breakdowns and irresponsibility," in ...
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
The Washington Post was proud of the US press corps yesterday. Having the opportunity to ask Hu four questions, two reporters chose to ask tough (but thoughtful) ones about human rights violations in China. (See article excerpted above.) In this article, we'll ...
Republicans to Cut Everything but Military
January 21, 2011
House Republicans have issued a list of cuts to be made to federal spending. We quote from the article excerpted above: The proposals "would reduce current spending for non-defense, non-homeland security and non-veterans programs to 2008 levels." Homeland Secur ...
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
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 ...
