NRA Makes a Terrible Deal
June 17, 2010
We wanted to focus on this debate in the House of Representatives because it typifies the posture of the National Rifle Association. The legislation in question, according to an article by Gun Owners of America (GOA) on its website, "would require special-inter ...
Eurozone Still Failing
June 16, 2010
The Daily Bell analyzes the dominant social themes of the power elite, and one of the most important fear-based promotions has been the inevitability of monetary union - expansive, global and ongoing. Thus, we have watched bemusedly as the EU brain-trust has st ...
The West Is Losing the War
June 16, 2010
We have been discussing the EU fairly regularly and also the Afghan war. These are two critical elite promotions and they are both failing. We discuss the EU in the other article in today's Bell. Here we once again ponder the war in light of recent events – a ...
Gulfo Regional Currency Fails
June 15, 2010
We are surprised. The Gulfo is no more. Wikipedia, in fact, has expunged the name Gulfo, which we thought was very a strange name to begin with. Wikipedia now redirects us from Gulfo to Khaleeji (currency). This we learn was the proposed name. Khaleeji is Arabi ...
Obama: BP Spill Is Green 9/11
June 15, 2010
Ordinarily we don't like to cover stories that are already receiving a great deal of coverage, and this one has been splashed all over the blogosphere. But we have to cover it, really, because it deals so directly with the Bell's brief, which is to report on th ...
The Bernanke Defense – Fail!
June 14, 2010
It is so interesting to see the ways that people construct the various realities of modern day life – and their evolution. In our opinion, the London Times has gotten a lot more aggressive and honest in terms of covering the current economic crisis. This fits ...
Pakistan Is Taliban Puppet Master?
June 14, 2010
This is an astonishing revelation from our point of view. We have tended to analyze the war from the point of view of the Afghan Pashtuns – which is a lot better than the mainstream media does, anyway – but we were always aware of the larger element of Paki ...
Deflation as a Scare Tactic
June 11, 2010
We've now explored the inflation versus price deflation argument in depth in two articles – and arrived at the conclusion that modern fiat-money economies are more likely to tip toward price inflation than price deflation, at least eventually. In fact, this a ...
Will Afghan Police Save the West?
June 11, 2010
We want to return to the topic of the Afghan war because the end-game is becoming more apparent – and we want to present both the scenario and its consequences. To be clear, we were always skeptical of the military surge planned for Afghanistan. We never beli ...
Deflation Is Good
June 10, 2010
We wrote an article about inflation and price inflation recently and came down on the side of inflation (both price and monetary) - in the long term anyway. This article on Rick Ackerman's blog seems to be getting a lot of attention and comes to the opposite co ...
When to Bomb Iran?
June 10, 2010
Sanctions alone will probably not restrain Iran's nuclear program nor its inevitable march toward a nuclear weapon. Iran's leaders have made a deal with Turkey and Brazil that will considerably vitiate any sanctions that are placed against that country. Additio ...
US Best for Growth – Say What?
June 09, 2010
We had to look at this article twice, because the first time we didn't quite believe it. From our perspective, the US economy is not in great shape. Also from our perspective (and we've been writing about this for nearly a decade now) gold and silver investment ...
False Meme of Anarchy?
June 09, 2010
Anthony Fry made headlines throughout the blog-o-sphere with his dramatic comments about buying barbed wire and guns as the West's economic environment continues to erode. The hysteria swirled about various electronic pages and the terror evinced by the more pa ...
Britain to See Inflation Risk?
June 08, 2010
The world is in a jam because its biggest economic brains don't know where money is headed. Is the paper money in your pocket, dear reader, going to be worth less or more ... tomorrow. This article in Telegraph tells us that more economists believe that money i ...
US Tax Collapse Coming?
June 08, 2010
One of the miracles of the years of former President Ronald Reagan was the boost the American economy received from tax cuts. And one of the prominent advisors to Ronald Reagan and his "kitchen cabinet" was Arthur Laffer, the developer of the Laffer Curve. This ...
Mainstream Media Predicts Euro Death
June 07, 2010
We were surprised by this article in the UK Telegraph because we have come to believe that the power elite that is responsible for the Western world's dominant social themes tries to "keep a lid on" contrarian perspectives as long as possible. From our humble p ...
NASA vs. the Sun
June 07, 2010
Once upon a time, this might have been a frightening prediction. But there are so many of them these days. Here at the Bell we call them dominant social themes. They are, in our opinion, (in many cases, anyway) actually fear-based promotions generated by a powe ...
U.S. Still World's Policeman
June 05, 2010
This is an astonishing and forceful statement by Max Boot, "the Jeane J. Kirkpatrick senior fellow for national security studies at the Council on Foreign Relations and a contributing editor to Opinion," according to the brief LA Times bio at the bottom of the ...
Buffett Warns of Municipal Debt Meltdown
June 04, 2010
The issue of over-spending by US municipalities has been evident for a long time but has also been overshadowed the European sovereign crisis. But in a sense both crises are similar in that participants overspent and were supported in doing so by the larger sec ...
Chaos of the Bilderbergers?
June 04, 2010
The Bilderberg group is meeting in Spain and unlike other years there has been relatively speaking a good deal of coverage of the meeting. We have already speculated that the reason has to do with the alternative 'Net press's relentless scrutiny. Thus, for the ...
A New Euro to Save the Old One?
June 03, 2010
We never understood how the EU would work over the long term. The tribes of Europe gladly took their profits, but how can you make the argument that people should put up with years of "austerity" for the sake of a concept only a banker could love. Pan European ...
Israel Faces Off With Iran
June 03, 2010
The unfolding and unending saga of Israel versus Gaza flotilla has ended up, unsurprisingly as an Israel versus Iran scenario. And that's too bad. When the fluid situation in the Middle East is hardened into a confrontation between Israel (a tiny nation) and Ir ...
US Economic Recovery of Lies
June 02, 2010
The trouble with economic reporting in the West is that it simply does not tell the truth. This AP story is a good example. Its main point is that the American "recovery" is not going to be strong enough to provide enough jobs for the 15.3 million unemployed. N ...
Taking Aim at Iran
June 02, 2010
A recent article of ours about "evil Jews" caused a bit of a stir. We were roasted for referring to Jews as evil (even ironically) and we also were hit on the other side by those who were upset that we didn't come right out and admit that Israel generally and t ...
China Blows Up?
June 01, 2010
When we first predicted the overheating of the Chinese economy early last year, we could hardly find a word about it. Nonetheless, it was clear to us that no economy grows at 10-percent per quarter normally - year-in and year-out - without some very strong mone ...
US Diverts Flight to Capture 'Muslim'
June 01, 2010
There are many ways of promoting an elite dominant social theme. In the case of the myriad major memes and minor themes that the Anglo-American elite inflicts on long-suffering Western citizens, there are verbal and written promotions, and then there are promot ...
EU Spins Out of Control
May 31, 2010
What a mess. As can be seen by the article excerpt above, the European Union threatens to come apart at the seams. The debt "contagion" is obviously not stopping, nor can it, given the monstrous overhang that is now being presented to world markets. Spain has b ...
Aliens, the Next Fear-Based Meme?
May 31, 2010
At this point, we would put nothing past the power elite when it comes to fear-based promotions. The global warming promotion was amazingly audacious, and we have no illusion that the elite has ceased to flog it. While we haven't dealt with it specifically in t ...
Canada Creates Own SEC
May 29, 2010
Here is what Canada's industrialist and regulators ought to keep in mind. There are plenty of places to mine in the world and plenty of well-capitalized entrepreneurs outside of Canada. Regardless of the reasons for the current SEC legislation, we would have to ...
The Ron Paul Story
May 29, 2010
While we usually focus on the dominant social these of the elite, we wanted to take the time over this weekend to comment on the Paul clan and how it has been shaking up the political establishment. We are aware of the reports circulating that Ron Paul is part ...
Euro Crisis to Set One World Currency?
May 28, 2010
As the money crisis seems to grow worse in Europe, we have begun to wonder if there are parallels to the 1907 financial panic in the United States that gave rise to the Federal Reserve. The dominant social theme way back then (assuming an active power elite, an ...
SEC to Rule All Trades All the Time
May 28, 2010
So it has come to this. In America, anyway, and surely in Europe too, regulatory authorities wish to be empowered to look at every click, every number, every trading strategy of ANYONE in order to detect fraud and make sure that markets are fair, open and trans ...
Money Supply Plunging Toward Depression?
May 27, 2010
The talk in the United States, especially, and Britain, too, is one of recovery. Even in Europe, we noted recently, there are digital maps available that show much of the Eurozone is coming out of "recession" and various indicators are turning positive. We have ...
Vanunu Jailed by Evil Jews?
May 27, 2010
We are not much impressed by Israeli justice when it comes Mordechai Vanunu who has paid with a good deal of his life for apparently exposing Israel's nuclear arsenal. Presumably his persecution is supposed to be a warning to others not to tell Western media ab ...
Copycat Republicans Seek Answers
May 26, 2010
We are more apt to consider these twin initiatives to be promotions rather than serious efforts to address serious Western dilemmas. Yet even their existence, no matter the outcome, indicates that the elites are well aware of the rising level of discontent in t ...
US Wavers on Afghan War?
May 26, 2010
Those focused on protecting and building their investments, should follow the manipulations of the power elite and their themes closely in an attempt to figure out what may occur next. There is no surety in terms of a correct interpretation, but by tracking the ...
Europe Braces for Chaos
May 25, 2010
For several years now, we've been covering the power elite's dominant social theme as regards the European Union. And what is that? It seems to be ... "Only regional and even global governance can prevent another world war (or at least pan-European war) from ha ...
Desperation of the US Republican Elite
May 25, 2010
So many of the fundamental processes put in place by the power elite and sustained by a vast matrix of educational, media, military and civilian authorities are foundering that it is difficult to know exactly what is going to happen next. But we will predict th ...
Traditional American Values Are Dead and Buried?
May 24, 2010
Working closely together, we Bell staffers have developed a most un-libertarian, hive-like mentality. These days, buzzing in our bee-brains are recollections, often, of the compelling Claudius books by Robert Graves. What comes to mind, however, is not so much ...
UN Swaps One Fear for Another
May 24, 2010
The difficulty with attempting to decipher elite memes and actions in the era of the Internet is that as the workability of fear-based memes has decreased, the level of uncertainty regarding elite actions – and their effectiveness – has actually increased. ...
Rand Paul Disappoints?
May 22, 2010
Yesterday, when all 1,000 of us – the writers, editors and coffee go-fers of the Daily Bell staff – gathered around a conference table the length of a football field in our Pentagon-sized editorial office to decide on today's Bell article, it didn't take us ...
Does Anti-Obama Fever Drive US Elections?
May 21, 2010
From our point of view an element of the American punditry is working overtime trying to portray upcoming House and Senate elections as an anti-Obama pro Republican mandate. In fact, we believe that such portrayals are part of a larger dominant social theme - t ...
Scandal Over Blood Doping Hits Cycling
May 21, 2010
In the 1960s, radical elements of the youth movement were impassioned about sociopolitical issues but, as we recall it, often went out of their way to exempt sports - certain sports anyway - from their arguments. It wasn't that sports didn't partake of the same ...
US War Crowd Losing Steam?
May 20, 2010
We try analyze the elite's dominant social themes here at the Bell; but it has occurred to that when it comes to the victory of Rand Paul in Kentucky, we would tend to believe the elite doesn't know how to spin it. Rand Paul is an anti-foreign war, anti big-gov ...
German Anger Rises Against Afghan War
May 20, 2010
We have identified two of the power elite's most fragile current themes as the EU and the war in Afghanistan. The break-up of the EU (or at least the foundering of the euro) is increasingly a viable possibility from our point of view. The ongoing, slow-motion u ...
UK Surveillance State Deflates?
May 19, 2010
The idea that the British Queen herself – with a putative worth in the trillions – will apparently make such statements as these only adds to the strength of what we would have to believe is a considerable rhetorical reversal. Given the endless attempts of ...
More Trading Curbs for NYSE
May 19, 2010
We wonder that anyone can report these issues with a straight face anymore. Well, obviously Reuters can. But at what point do observers finally say "enough" when it comes to regulatory democracy and its ever-evolving attempts to "fix" elements of industry that ...
Greek Banking Crack-Up Exposed
May 18, 2010
Above and beyond the contradiction between its strategies and goals, the elite is struggling with two other factors in Europe. First, the downturn is far worse than expected and is causing considerable tension between elite players themselves (Sarkozy, Merkel, ...
Afghan Poppy Farmers Attacked by NATO?
May 18, 2010
If indeed Western intelligence agencies are responsible for the sudden Afghan poppy plague, let us be clear: It will go down in the annals of counter-intelligence as one of the stupidest blunders ever made by the West's blinkered spooks. It would be a classic c ...
Just Goldman?
May 17, 2010
There is (just so we don't leave anyone in suspense) an Anglo-American elite with European roots, an intermingling of royal and industrial families and Venetian bankers probably tracing their antecedents back to Rome and beyond, perhaps even apocryphally to Bab ...
