Rise of Rothschild Scholarship
August 03, 2010
There is a plethora of information on the web concerning Jews and "Money Power" these days - some of it scholarly and some of it running the gamut from bemused to hysterical. Separately, books are continually appearing on the subject and focusing directly on th ...
Why Bankers Didn't See Collapse
August 02, 2010
We have written about this dominant social theme before but are constantly amazed by its reoccurrence. Actually, it is not a dominant theme but a sub-dominant social theme, a spinoff of a larger theme, which is, of course, "the world's central banking economy i ...
The Bombing of Iran
August 02, 2010
Increasingly, we believe the high-water mark of the Anglo-American axis came in 2007. History will record, as with Rome, that this first decade of the 2000s marked a gradually shifting away from one of the bloodiest annals of human history. The Anglo-American a ...
Two Modern Divinities Better Than One
July 31, 2010
And so we see how memes grow. One dominant social theme we already understand. Central banking itself is a kind of priesthood with Wall Street execs, such as Goldmas Sach's Llyod Blankfein (above left), publicly boasting of their divine relationships to society ...
The Irish Leave the EU
July 30, 2010
id the aggregate Irish populace see this coming? It was not so long ago that the Irish voted twice to provide the EU with additional powers that EU leaders had hoped to achieve via the passage of a constitution. When the French along with a few other countries ...
Autism & Intestinal Link Seen
July 30, 2010
Is it really? It looks as if the infamous proponent of this link, Dr. Andrew Wakefield, was correct after all. It is his contention that there is a connection between the gut and autism, and he has specialized in nutrition and gut-cleansing treatments in order ...
UK Stagflation – Now It Begins
July 29, 2010
Bet you didn't know that Britain was suffering from high inflation. We didn't anyway and we try to keep on top of these things. We knew that Britain was suffering from a high jobless rate. And we knew that Britain's debts were out of control, causing the countr ...
Inflation – India's Turn
July 29, 2010
Another day, another dry and witty Economist magazine article advising another large country on what its central bankers need to do. There is never any doubt within The Economist brain-trust that central banking is a necessary phenomenon, or that it merely need ...
Is It a Deflationary Depression?
July 28, 2010
The Telegraph has been very good at diagnosing deflationary trends in the larger economy, and we have agreed with this analysis because it seems obvious. What is noteworthy, however, is that prices keep going down, as the Telegraph analyzes above, even though t ...
Comes a Blond Stranger …
July 28, 2010
Let's summarize," he said. "We got an albino misfit with a strange name running around from country to country and leaking confidential information onto hundreds of anonymous servers. We'll fund the operation, but he'll pretend to be aided by generous anonymous ...
The Spreading Chinese Inflation
July 27, 2010
This is a treat. We were scrolling through the 'Net and came on this June China analysis laid out in an Israeli blog that bills itself as one that offers "a Libertarian and Austrian View on Economic, Financial and Geopolitical Issues." Since we have been writin ...
The War Falls Apart?
July 27, 2010
Yesterday, we surmise, was one long headache for those in charge of the Afghanistan war on the Western side. Metaphorically, many good officers in the Pentagon and elsewhere stood in the middle of otherwise efficient offices holding their collective heads. Bad ...
The Impossibility of Modern Capitalism
July 26, 2010
Of course from our point of view the Economist is one of the mouthpieces for the British elite. As dashing and amusing as Punch magazine, as erudite as another mainstream mouthpiece, the Financial Times, the Economist profiles the goings-on of the world every w ...
Hollywood's Failing Memes
July 26, 2010
We take a time out, in this article, to cast our admittedly jaundiced eye on the beautiful Angelina Jolie, perhaps the world's biggest female movie star. Why focus on Angelina Jolie? We find in her, to be frank, a well-traveled and weird intersection between Ho ...
America Is Over-Regulated?
July 24, 2010
When is a meme not a meme? Maybe when it is true. The power elite creates memes – global warming is an example – that are untrue but nonetheless are intended to generate fear and confusion. It is the construction of this emotion that results in people givin ...
Jobless Spending Fights Recession
July 23, 2010
In this article we will debunk once more the idea that government can spend its way out of a recession. It is our modest contribution to the 21st century, which we can truthfully label an "Age of Misinformation," fortunately alleviated by the advent of the Inte ...
Does War Make a Hero?
July 23, 2010
The militarization of American society is a long-term project in our opinion. It began shortly after Vietnam when the Pentagon, confronting the wreckage of failed military policies, began a rehabilitation campaign that resulted in the formation of a private, vo ...
Central Bankers to Prick Bubbles
July 22, 2010
We can see from this brief synopsis that central banking, the artificial creation of money-stuff (especially the mercantilist variety) manufactures both inflation and asset bubbles. But in doing so, central bankers get to pose as combatants of the very problems ...
Internet Forces Honest Reporting?
July 22, 2010
Yesterday we reported on a startling cover story that appeared in Newsweek written by Richard N. Haass, the president of the famous Council on Foreign Relations, all-but-admitting the war in Afghanistan was a lost cause and suggesting ways that Western goals of ...
The Statist Truth About China
July 21, 2010
We have written numerous articles about the Chinese miracle with the intent of trying to explain that while China may have created a Western competitive face, the reality is otherwise. We have provided these articles because the current Western approach to Chin ...
Afghan War Over, as Predicted?
July 21, 2010
Thus it is that we were able to determine last year, far sooner than most (if not all) publications, that the American Federal Reserve was going to come under sustained attack; we made this prognostication when we noticed that the Fed was not mounting convincin ...
All Gold To Be Tracked?
July 20, 2010
This US law seems fairly invasive. Year-to-year, any payments to a vendor of more than US$600 will have to be reported to the IRS. While we were aware of this payment mandate, we hadn't fully realized the consequences for gold and silver until a feedbacker poin ...
Document Reveals Taliban Reintegration
July 20, 2010
We have long held that the war is being waged specifically and obviously against the Pashtun. But given that the two great tribes of this region both seem unfavorable to continued Western intervention, the West is likely unable to bring the war to a successful ...
The Genius of Bernanke
July 19, 2010
We have no idea how the Wall Street Journal came up with this blog singing the praises of Bernanke. But we have excerpted the article above and used its rhetoric as an example of a specific trend. It shows once again how the elite seems immune to opposing viewp ...
Afghanistan – Better or Worse?
July 19, 2010
From our point of view the Afghanistan War is another dominant social theme that is failing. While some in the alternative news community maintain that the Afghanistan war is merely another phony war cooked up by CIA blowback, we don't think it is nearly that s ...
Senator Scott Brown's Disturbing Story
July 17, 2010
In this article we will briefly explore the collision between the Internet and the powers-that-be, and how it is changing the American political process - and thus the economic and investment climate. This is an ongoing process that has not yet reached a critic ...
Blame Central Banking Not Banks
July 16, 2010
We do not believe that blaming the bankers gets it "just right." In fact, it is the most common of all dominant social themes – that economic downturns are the fault of big, powerful private interests. This sort of populism has been cultivated by the power-el ...
Financial Regulations Don't Work
July 16, 2010
The larger conversation encompasses a forthright and basic dominant social theme: "Capitalism is prone to error, and government corrects." How in the 21st century anyone can still subscribe to this formula, having seen the damage that government has wrought on ...
Don't You Try and Save!
July 15, 2010
The whole system is perverse. It has been set up by a power elite for purposes of consolidating wealth and control in THEIR hands, not for creating better and more prosperous civil societies. In normal, healthy societies, money is a tool of commerce not a metho ...
Building the Long War
July 15, 2010
In several previous articles we've examined the possibilities of the US opening a third (or fourth) military front with Iran. Certainly the US and its allies seem on track to do this and from our point of view the examination of this possibility, combined with ...
Will the Dollar Crisis Spawn Chaos?
July 14, 2010
When is a report a dominant social theme and when is it reality? And when, perhaps (we wonder) is it both? These are serious questions to those who believe the Western world is manipulated by a power elite that wields dominant social themes as a way of further ...
Big Science Desperation Over God Particle
July 14, 2010
It is of course possible that Big Science will yield some conclusive and surprising results – perhaps all five God Particles, or even more. Equally feasible, it may yield inconclusive results that will be held up as conclusive because of all the vested intere ...
Iran War Even Closer?
July 13, 2010
Articles such as this one set the scene for the unthinkable – a three-front Middle East war. The US is embroiled in Iraq, no matter what proponents of the "surge" say. The Afghanistan war, as we have covered it, is getting larger without getting any better fr ...
Trade Wars Final Nail in Coffin
July 13, 2010
In retrospect, blaming the Great Depression on tariffs was a soft-libertarian solution. What do we mean by soft libertarian? We mean that proponents could make government the culprit without delving deeply into the real causes of the Great Depression. In a sens ...
Nullification – the Freedom Meme
July 12, 2010
The Anglo-American power elite provides the Western world with dominant social themes. In the past, certainly in the 20th century, these themes worked wonderfully well. But today, many of these memes are under attack. When the elite muscles them forward nonethe ...
What's Behind Gold's Recent Moves?
July 12, 2010
As we pointed out in today's other article, we may be reaching a point where the elite's attempts to continually reinforce dominant social themes actually begin to be counter-productive. This may be seen in recent downward moves by the gold market. There are pl ...
Internet Censorship Fear Campaign?
July 10, 2010
We have written previously of Internet censorship and have often pointed out the difficulties of making censorship stick with the current technology. Recently, the Internet has been hit with a spate of articles explaining how censorship is being implemented aro ...
Beginning of the End of the Afghan War?
July 09, 2010
This is very interesting news. Ann Coulter never met a Republican president or a Republican politician for that matter about whom she couldn't find something nice to say. Coulter is the kind of public intellectual that works in America, a polarizing figure with ...
Central Bankers Losing Control
July 09, 2010
Obviously the austerity meme has served its purpose. The world's central banking wise men seem far more worried now that, left unattended, the West will continue to struggle with deleveraging and price deflation. We have predicted this all along, running a seri ...
Save the EMU?
July 08, 2010
O, the horror! ING has issued a report that apparently concludes the break-up of the Economic and Monetary Union of Europe is simply unfathomable. The idea is that the pain and suffering that would be caused by its demise would spin the Western world into the l ...
Hypocrisy of the Fed
July 08, 2010
We thought this was an interesting article from the Associated Press because it shows so clearly how the power elite's dominant social themes operate. The Federal Reserve itself is an immensely destructive economic force as are central banks generally. By print ...
China on the Brink?
July 07, 2010
Sometimes, as we have pointed out before, news is just news and information is just information. The power elite's dominant social themes are pervasive, but in order to maintain the credibility of mainstream news organizations, a good deal of real information m ...
The Heck With Homeopathy
July 07, 2010
It should be fairly clear to most who patronize the "alternative" media that there is a vast divide as regards health care and medicine. Many writers, speakers and researchers in the alternative 'Net media find mainstream medicine no more convincing than mainst ...
Libertarians Seek Rahn's Ideal State
July 06, 2010
Two brand new dominant social themes in a very short space of time, or at least that is the way we see it. The state has come under tremendous attack in the 21st century and we believe the powers-that-be are pushing back. (Why wouldn't they?) In aggregate, the ...
NASA Now Muslim Space Agency
July 06, 2010
For many people, the idea that NASA's mission is now essentially diplomatic rather than technological is, well ... weird. NASA is supposed to put astronauts in space and it would seem that the funding, infrastructure and professional talent that NASA has acquir ...
Did Elites Expect a Depression?
July 05, 2010
The power elite, it has emerged in the era of the Internet, keeps control of Western institutions and authorities via dominant social themes. These fear-based promotions literally seem to organize society and ensure that people's energy and ambitions are channe ...
Afghanistan in Disarray
July 05, 2010
We have written many articles about the Afghan war recently because it has turned into something of a defining moment for Western hegemony. During the Cold War, the Anglo-American version of Western regulatory democracy could not be spread around the whole worl ...
Power Elite Versus State Capitalism – A New Meme!
July 03, 2010
This is a rare event. It is like watching a dormant volcano come to life. Or an island being raised in the ocean from resultant lava flows. It is a one-of-a-kind opportunity. We are bearing witness to the creation of a brand new dominant social theme. It is a m ...
The 'Virulent' Recovery
July 02, 2010
This is a truly remarkable little story because it indicates the confusion that the mainstream media is facing when it comes to preparing and presenting dominant social themes. In the excerpt, above, we see a report that former Federal Reserve chairman Alan Gre ...
Horror of Common Law?
July 02, 2010
Just yesterday, inspired by the nomination of Elena Kagan to the US Supreme Court, we focused on how the Western legal system had increasingly departed from the sensible roots of common law. Now comes this Telegraph story about blood feuds in Albania, which is ...
