UFO-Like Objects Appear on Schedule
October 14, 2010
A feedbacker sent us an email yesterday, pointing out that "Well, here it is October 13th, 2010 and there IS indeed, a UFO hovering over NYC." We thank the feedbacker for the alert. The news was all over the Internet and YouTube, in fact, when we checked: Huffi ...
Crossing Memes? – UFOs and the Muslim Threat
October 14, 2010
We have mentioned Billy Meier before because he is one of the original UFO-ologists and his case seems to figure prominently in UFO annals. What is passing strange about the current state of the Billy Meiers oeuvre is that it seems to have overlapped powerfully ...
Dreamtime of the Baby Boomers
October 13, 2010
We stated the other day that it "seemed" the US moon-landings were real and immediately a feedbacker sent us a link to the Center for an Informed America, which is run by David McGowan. As a result of reading McGowan's extensive dozen-part series called "Waggin ...
Copyright and Private Markets
October 13, 2010
We have written two articles on intellectual property proposing that market forces provide the determinant factor for copyright, patents, etc. This is the third and final one (for now anyway.) We can see from the above article excerpt that the current mania to ...
Irish Central Bank: Raise Taxes Now
October 12, 2010
We have been arguing for a while that austerity is a promotion and that the real idea behind it is to ensure the EU doesn't go under as a regional entity and also, just as important, that the European middle-classes lose even more ground. Sub dominant social th ...
Copyright Redux and the Brilliance of Kinsella
October 12, 2010
We can see from the above article that when Steve Jobs wanted a Chinese manufacturer to cease and desist from copying Apple's iPhone, he got the Chinese government to apply pressure to the rogue manufacturer. This is an example of the point we were trying to ma ...
The Tyranny of Copyright
October 11, 2010
The Internet has greatly increased the argument over copyrights and "intellectual property" and now comprehensive treaties (see article above) are being negotiated to harmonize intellectual property rights across the globe. Sub dominant social theme: "Thank goo ...
Moon Hoax and Margaret Atwood
October 11, 2010
We were glad to read this article (excerpted above) about Margaret Atwood who is one of the greatest writers in the world and also what Samuel Johnson would call a "leveler." We always wonder how such great minds, with such great insights into human character, ...
Rise of EU Military Power
October 09, 2010
We have written in the recent past about how the EU is actually an Anglo-American invention and is likely controlled behind the scenes by the Anglo-American axis. We pointed this out in the context of the British City – the world's most famous financial cente ...
A Coming Republican Onslaught?
October 09, 2010
We have been following voter whiplash of the past decade-and-a-half with a good deal of interest. We picked the Clinton presidency in America as the first real Internet presidency because of the impact that the Internet had on his credibility and programs. Matt ...
EU Confrontations Continue
October 08, 2010
It is sometimes a little wearying to follow the ins and outs of the austerity measures being pushed in Europe because from our point of view they increasingly are a kind of pre-scripted affair. They do give rise to the idea that those behind the EU knew perfect ...
The Salvaging of Mainstream Media
October 08, 2010
We have noticed a kind of phenomenon taking place within the US media circles. It has to do with great media properties that have essentially be ruined by the Internet and then offered for a single dollar. We read reports that this was the initial nominal price ...
Good Grief… Another Round of Stimulus!
October 07, 2010
In our attempts to track the fading of the elite's central banking promotion, we have sensed a kind of turning point. No doubt many others have as well but since we have been predicting the decline and fall of central banking for some two years now (actually te ...
A Tale of Two Contacts
October 07, 2010
Unlike most of the mainstream press and even a good deal of the alternative press, the Daily Bell has continually expressed skepticism over the war in Afghanistan. We are in fact almost alone in our conclusion that the Iraq "surge" had little or nothing to do w ...
IMF Article Predicts New World Order
October 06, 2010
As we have written plenty of times before, it's startling to see how fast the Anglo-American power elite is willing to move now toward a more specific and comprehensive global governance. When we read this article, even just the beginning, it was obvious to us ...
UFOs in Worldwide Revelation on Oct 13
October 06, 2010
We were going to write an article about Afghanistan, which is not going especially well for the West, when our collective concentration was entirely ruined by a feedbacker who forwarded to us the article excerpted above. It's been around almost a month now, but ...
Insider Trading and Central Banks
October 05, 2010
We've written about the insanity of insider-trading laws before but this article brings it all back to us. Many laws and regulations these days are written as a kind of pre-emptive propaganda and insider-trading regulations are among the most pernicious in this ...
UFO Promotion Goes Mainstream – Quick Hide!
October 05, 2010
We've dealt with the UFO phenomenon as an elite fear-based promotion, but it turns out we're not the only ones who are somewhat dubious about what's going on. There doesn't seem any doubt to us that the pace has picked up. Reuters recently carried a press relea ...
China Joyfully Bails Out EU?
October 04, 2010
Joy! That was the word that caught our eye. Premier Wen sat straight up in bed one morning, teary-eyed. He was overwhelmed with joy ... at Greece's recovery! "China," he muttered to no one in particular (he really did), "is prepared, hand in hand with the EU, a ...
Rolling Stone and Taibbi's Dilemma
October 04, 2010
Human beings, above all, are metaphorical creatures and here at the Bell we are no exception to this rule. Thus it is, we sometimes see certain cultural excrescences as symbolic of larger economic and sociopolitical trends. Matt Taibbi, bless him, is one such w ...
A Quiet, Global Revolution
October 02, 2010
It is no coincidence, in our view that the rise of the United Nations and various forums that allow for "understandings" between nations have paralleled what can be seen reasonably as a rise in various repressive mechanisms of the state. The war on terror, in f ...
Austerity Bites Ireland and Elite
October 01, 2010
The EUs condition continues to deteriorate and austerity has fanned the flames of resentment as we predicted it would. Ireland is in fact a kind of poster child for the uselessness of what is occurring now. And here at the Bell, we would like to make sure that ...
Failing Water Promotion Drives Elite Insecurity
October 01, 2010
We are returning to this promotion once more (after our recent article) because water scarcity and food scarcity were evidently and obviously going to be the next themes that the power elite was going to heavily promote. This makes a good deal of sense given th ...
Elite Between Rock and Hard Place
September 30, 2010
There is an argument made by some, especially in the alternative Internet media that the powers-that-be are trying to undermine the US dollar in order to set up a more globalized currency. But we think this perception may give policymakers a bit too much credit ...
Paul Family Dynasty Ends Before It Began?
September 30, 2010
The mainstream media continued to flog the usual sub dominant social theme of Rand Paul "free-market thinker, racist and capitalist," but we were beginning to think the libertarian threat was greatly exaggerated. Yes, we were coming to a different conclusion ab ...
Who Needs Banks?
September 29, 2010
We've often pointed out that banking is the "biggest bubble" - at least until a feedbacker pointed out to us that government actually is. But banks probably run a close second. In the 20th century, especially, central bankers were the unacknowledged priests of ...
Comics Are an Elite Super Weapon – Water Man to the Rescue!
September 29, 2010
We were doing some research into the United Nations the other day (all 1,000 of us) when we came across a couple of articles dealing with an apparently abortive comic book enterprise that was to the feature the UN. The headline: "Marvel Comics to Produce United ...
Bernanke Stops Making Sense
September 28, 2010
Ben Bernanke is on the rebound. Given the idea that the best defense is a good offense, Bernanke has apparently decided to make elaborate speeches justifying American economics and his actions - and the actions of the Fed. Dominant social theme: We're on top th ...
UN Sets for Space Aliens
September 28, 2010
We really do think we see signs of an elite fear-based promotion having to do with space aliens. In fact, we've already broached this idea in the fairly recent past. But this article (excerpted above) brings the subject up again. Seem wacky? After the insanity ...
Project Mockingbird for Patriots?
September 27, 2010
People who visit the Bell regularly know that we usually begin analysis of a power elite dominant social theme with a mainstream media article. But occasionally we depart from this formula when we find a non-mainstream or alternative press analysis that adds to ...
EU Leaders Save the Union?
September 27, 2010
Reporting the arguments of EU leaders may provide a human face. But it likely does nothing to ameliorate the underlying stresses. Elite promotions can fail when they are discovered or debunked. In this case, the promotion seems simply to be outrunning reality. ...
Oliver Stone, Central Banking Apologist
September 25, 2010
This new Oliver Stone financial film, "Money Never Sleeps," (a follow to his big 1980's hit "Wall Street") is notable for what it leaves out. Even with immense pressure on the Federal Reserve from a variety of sources, Oliver Stone fails to put recent central b ...
Sounds of EU Squawking
September 24, 2010
We have puzzled some readers with our insistence that EU austerity was another fear-based promotion of the power elite, but in this article we will seek once again to why the elite has attempted to enforce austerity and why it is failing. Anyone, in our estimat ...
Big Science Shrinks?
September 24, 2010
While we have written numerous articles on the bureaucracy of big science and its varying incompetences, we have neglected to point out the impact that the unrolling financial crisis is having on what the Register (see above article excerpt) calls "boffins." We ...
How Globalism Emerges – in a Rush
September 23, 2010
The power elite used to move along the waters of the world like a majestic supertanker with plenty of time to take evasive action when an obstacle was sighted. These days it races along like nuclear-powered destroyer. An additional dominant social theme might b ...
Fracturing of Global Sports
September 23, 2010
Just yesterday, we wrote about NFL quarterback Michael Vick who ran a violent dog-fighting ring and who, years after the offenses, remained something of a sports pariah from a reporting standpoint. We pointed out that the sports-writing community in particular ...
Land Ho!
September 22, 2010
Savvy investors – having realized that the stock market is not necessarily the way to generate terrific riches – are going back to the land. The dominant social theme might be, "Who can trust these paper products? Give us tangible, productive investments th ...
Does Vick Deserve Redemption?
September 22, 2010
We've watched the Michael Vick story unfold with some fascination. It tends to confirm what we think about sports reporters in general, that they exaggerate every single wrongheaded characteristic of mainstream reporters. This stands to reason after all; it tak ...
Markets Reject EU Austerity?
September 21, 2010
The UK Telegraph remains a mainstream anomaly; articles by Ambrose Evans-Pritchard often do not buttress the dominant social themes that the power elite is trying to promote. On the other hand, Evans-Pritchard is no free-market monetarist. He seems to believe i ...
The Rise of Iran
September 21, 2010
Is it jaw-jaw rather than war-war with Iran? Portions of the US military industrial complex obviously want war-war, but the pushback from other US military, intelligence and civilian sectors seem to mitigate against it. We remember when it seemed certain that t ...
Gold: The Anti-Bubble
September 20, 2010
The Gold Council research makes the point that "The gold price is consistent with its long-run average level compared with a range of different assets, including equity indices and hard assets like oil." Or to put it another way, there is a new dominant social ...
Is the Tea Party a Modern-Day Renaissance?
September 20, 2010
We can only repeat that what is happening is a process, not a series of inexplicable, serial events. Of course, we may yet be wrong. Perhaps the power elite can - via censorship and military force - reverse the trends that we see continuing to grow. But think f ...
Why Does the US Need a Consumer Czar?
September 18, 2010
There is so much that is strange about this consumer financial protection bureau that it is not easy to know where to start. First of all transactions between someone borrowing money and someone lending it do not strike us as "consumption." We think of consumpt ...
Why Government Is Necessary for Prosperity
September 17, 2010
This era has proven remarkable. We can actually see how dominant social themes are being built. We have compared this to watching an island form in the ocean out of volcanic material. It is a rare occurrence, but one that has confirmed our perspectives. The pla ...
Afghanistan Not Vietnam?
September 17, 2010
We really don't understand what is going on in Afghanistan anymore - or not from the perspective of the Anglo-American axis. Is it turning into another Vietnam, replete with body counts? Now there are "metrics" that the Pentagon and Obama administration are goi ...
EU Bars France: Now It Begins
September 16, 2010
It is true that as the Internet becomes more comprehensive, patterns emerge. We see patterns and often those who patronize our humble blog see the same patterns, and others, only more deeply and clearly. We are grateful when they present these visions to us via ...
Internet Continues to Change the World
September 16, 2010
This is a strange story for the mainstream media to carry. We don't see any promotion here, not even a dominant social theme necessarily – as we believe the above-excerpted article provides us with a fairly clear recitation of what is actually occurring, and ...
IMF: It Falls Apart
September 15, 2010
We return to the West's sputtering economy and horrific unemployment because it shows two things. One, elite-structured capitalism doesn't work and, two, the Anglo-American power elite is most nervous about social explosions as a result of the crashing monetary ...
NATO Takes Over?
September 14, 2010
We recently wrote about how a takeover by Brussels of Britain's financial centers was actually in our view nothing more than a real-estate transaction. British finance may move to Belgium, but the Anglo-American axis will still maintain control of it, just as t ...
What Has Happened to US Movies?
September 14, 2010
Satirist Joe Queenan is in great form in this article excerpted above and featured recently by the Wall Street Journal. Not only has it set the blogosphere abuzz, but we think it captures neatly an unspoken trend, which is that the movie fare that Hollywood pro ...
