How to Win This One in November
February 13, 2012
Seeing that it looks like Mitt Romney may well win the Republican nomination – though it's too early to be sure about that – it has been a concern of freedom loving Americans whether the nod given to human individual liberty by the Tea Party back in 2010 wi ...
The Personal Is the Economic
February 13, 2012
Feminist Carol Hanisch is famous for opposing the Miss America contest in the 1960s. She is also the person who in 1968 coined the phrase "the personal is the political." Her essay on the topic denounced the idea that women's liberation can come about through i ...
Switzerland Under Siege – Why Privacy Still Exists and Still Matters
February 13, 2012
The long-established and noble rule of Law, one of the greatest products of the character and tradition of British history, has suffered a deadly blow. Blackmail has become respectable. ~ Robert G. Menzies. Switzerland and its banks have been in the news a lot ...

Mr. Goldberg Apologizes for His Mises/Phone Booth Crack?
February 10, 2012
Many years ago, conservative pundit Jonah Goldberg lost his temper and wrote that Lew Rockwell (of LewRockwell.com and Mises.org) and his libertarian colleagues could fit into a "phone booth." Not so fast. Today, those who have a lively interest in Austrian fre ...
The Hopelessness of Insider Trading Prosecutions
February 10, 2012
Insider trading is important to prosecute, we are told, because it makes the markets less "fair." Someone with access to information that someone else doesn't have is taking advantage of those people and somehow making a profit at their expense. This "law" has ...
Elite Media Downplays Austrian Economics by Building Up MMT
February 09, 2012
Another day, another attempt by the mainstream media to marginalize Austrian economics. We're using the Economist article (excerpted above) as an example but in our view this is a powerful elite dominant social theme. How does the article marginalize Austrian e ...
Dollar: Going, Going …
February 09, 2012
The dollar has been the world reserve currency since 1944 and the Keynesian Fabian socialist economic palaver in New Hampshire's White Mountains. They all should have paid more attention to the deviant Lord Keynes. The situation is now gradually getting despera ...
Atlantic Misleads With 'Short History of Money'?
February 08, 2012
Here's how we figure this article "went down" ... "Hi, David, you're a contributing editor at Wired, a former Fulbright journalism fellow and a winner of the 2011 Oregon Arts Commission individual artists fellowship. You're a real bright guy and we're intereste ...
Ideas That (We are Told) are Too Urgent for Science
February 08, 2012
It's a familiar and effective marketing technique: You make an offer and then you add, "Hurry. Spaces are limited, so sign up now!" or "These models won't last, so act fast!" Of course, in most cases, spaces aren't really all that limited, and whether or not yo ...
Truth About Afghan War Failure Is More False Flag?
February 07, 2012
This is a weird article. Apparently, Davis, the author (see excerpt above) has claimed it will cost him his career. But we have a hard time believing that the US military did not in some sense know the article was coming and that there is more to this "whistleb ...
Trust Us; We're the Government
February 07, 2012
While much has been made recently of the President's unconstitutional appointment of Richard Cordray to be director of the Consumer Financial Protection Bureau (CFPB), lost in the hubbub has been any discussion of the unconstitutionality of, or the need for, th ...
Economist on India Central Banking: Financial Illiteracy on Display
February 06, 2012
Central banks should be free. That's the dominant social theme the Economist magazine is pounding home today in this article. Too bad the Economist's entire premise is a mistaken one. And that would surely come as a surprise to some ... though not to many who r ...
Goodbye, OC Register
February 06, 2012
Since the Fall of 1966 (if memory serves me right) I have been a columnist at what was then The Santa Ana but is now the Orange County Register. I cannot count how many columns I produced, nearly all of them concerned with demonstrating the superiority of the f ...

February 05, 2012
The Daily Bell is pleased to publish this interview with David Icke. Daily Bell: What do you have to say about the NDAA? David Icke: These are expressions of what I call the totalitarian tiptoe. It is where you introduce the totalitarian state, not all in one g ...
Elite Campaign to Re-Elect Obama in Full Swing?
February 04, 2012
From the Washington Post, we learn that "January job gains have economists rethinking outlooks." Oh, really? Last I looked, the bear leg of the larger business cycle was still in full effect. Nothing's changed in other words, since 2001 – or more pertinently ...
HSBC Laundering Billions?
February 03, 2012
Jerome Corsi better hire pretty good security. In Georgia, a lawsuit that Corsi has helped promote seems close to knocking US President Barack Obama off the ballot due to questions about his parents and whether he is US "natural born" – and thus eligible to b ...
Anonymous Attacks Intel
February 03, 2012
Anonymous has struck out at American intel, as the above AP story excerpt seems to confirm. Is this a trend or merely some sort of false flag – and what's the import? We think it reinforces our perception that the Internet is a process, not an episode. And th ...
How US Fascism Comes Out on Top Via 'Too-Big-to-Fail'?
February 02, 2012
Is this how fascism comes to America? It would seem a steady drip, drip, drip of frenetic government activism is concretizing the fascist state the way lime solidifies cement. Even in the 1980s under the Reagan administration, the media mythos of the US emphasi ...
Western Elites Caught 'Red-Handed' in Iran?
February 02, 2012
Wow, an important article by Samam Mohammadi based on other equally important articles that Mohammadi cites. He basically lays out a case, as we have in the past, that Iran is a phony US enemy and that the Iranian Revolution was actually Western-inspired. There ...
Obama Carefully Crafts Health Care Failure
February 01, 2012
Ezekiel J. Emanuel and Jeffrey B. Liebman – both of whom have Obama administration ties, apparently – have written a massively economically illiterate article on health care that was recently posted to the New York Times Op-Ed. The main point of the article ...
Now UN Plans to Guide Nations' 'Best Practices' Around the World
February 01, 2012
On its surface, this latest UN over-reach doesn't sound so alarming. The UN is simply stating via a press release announcing a Thai partnership that as part of its "next" five-year plan (shades of the USSR), its bureaucrats will reach agreements with countries ...
Bedrock of a Free Society
February 01, 2012
Living with integrity is a bedrock skill for living well that requires the use of reason and is always an ongoing work in progress. It is also the primary quality of character necessary for a free society. The best definition of reason that I've ever come acros ...
Facebook IPO Is US Intel Operation?
January 31, 2012
No, we don't believe the hype. It's directed history, perhaps, not reality. Zuckerberg is in his later twenties. Did you ever meet anyone who'd built a US$100 billion company in a single decade, much less at a time when most young men and women are still decidi ...
Failed Fed Policies Prolong the Agony
January 31, 2012
The Federal Reserve's interest rate price-setting board, the FOMC, met last week. They will continue to set the federal funds rate at well below 1%, and plan to keep it low until the end of 2014. That's a year and a half longer than they planned when they met j ...
Review: 'The Poison Plum'
January 31, 2012
While I enjoyed Jesse Ventura's article about Plum Island, "Government's Island of Horror," published over the weekend on LRC, I know from a close friend that Jesse only covered part of the treachery and conspiracy that is the Plum Island cover-up regarding Lym ...
A Gold Standard Is Good?
January 30, 2012
Energetic social credit entrepreneur Anthony Migchels is back with a spirited bashing of a "gold standard." His article appears – as have others by him – on Henry Makow's "conspiratorial website" and is focused on a few main points that have in part been ma ...
The Lowdown on Obama-economics
January 30, 2012
Economic fairness is impossible: an oxymoron. Since economic activities are inherently varied and often competitive and since one size doesn't fit all and not everyone can win in a competition, no such thing as fairness is possible unless it simply means no one ...
Larken Rose on Taxes, Freedom and Life After Prison
January 29, 2012
The Daily Bell is pleased to publish this interview with Larken Rose. Daily Bell: Are you in agreement with Ron Paul that the Federal Reserve needs to be abolished? Larken Rose: The Fed is a crime syndicate that needs to be ended. Now, the chance of getting it ...
More Phony Good News About the US Economy
January 27, 2012
It is really incredible to watch this meme flourish. We believe that the economic "good news" about the US economy is aimed primarily at furthering the hopes of President Barack Obama for a second term. We have written about this several times before as well. P ...
UN Tackles Mental Disorders: Supervise World Sanity Via 'People's Charter for Mental Health'?
January 26, 2012
So now the United Nations is to take up the issue of mental health on the way to creating a "People's Charter for Mental Health." But to us, this isn't a necessary antidote to another case of universal human suffering. It's merely the latest example of a fear-b ...
Megaupload's Planned Music Locker – Example of Private Justice?
January 26, 2012
Whoops. Turns out that Megaupload was planning to launch its own music service to compete with Hollywood's music monopoly – and that may have been the reason for the recent raid that shut down one of the largest websites in the world. This news has percolated ...
Breaking Up the Western World
January 25, 2012
The Telegraph's Boris Johnson has written an interesting article on the potential break-up of Britain, comparing it to the unexpected Costa Concordia cruise ship disaster. In a sense this article by Johnson is part of a larger power elite dominant social theme, ...
NHL Hockey Star Endorses Ron Paul?
January 25, 2012
Hockey is a game I know – rather well, actually. As a young person I excelled at the sport and even left home when I was 14 to live and play in a city that offered better coaching and a brighter road to the NHL. Yes, like many other young people growing up in ...
TSA and a Free Country: Are they Compatible?
January 25, 2012
Why does the TSA annoy so many of us? Not having the resources to do a survey, I resort here to what might be called educated speculation. I suspect it is because free men and women consider it invasive for government agents to order them around - pat them down ...
Stocks Are Poisonously Cheap?
January 24, 2012
OK, stocks are cheaper than they've been in 20 years. But cheaper than what? This is actually a kind of power elite dominant social theme, in our view. We used to believe in the myth of the ever-abundant stock market but not anymore. Nonetheless, equity drummer ...
Soros Threatens Blood on the Streets?
January 24, 2012
The Daily Beast is out with an article that ticks many of the boxes of dominant social themes of the elite. As we have often explained, the power elite works via fear-based promotions that frighten the middle classes into giving up power and wealth to globalist ...
Stop Internet Censorship
January 24, 2012
Although Congress was back in session for scarcely more than a day last week, private citizens across the country managed to cause an uproar felt across Capitol Hill. The uproar took the form of hundreds of thousands of phone calls to both Senators and Represen ...
US Rebounds? Prosperity Around the Corner?
January 23, 2012
A chicken in every pot? Every now and then our favorite mainstream journo, Ambrose Evans-Pritchard, runs off the tracks. Evans-Pritchard makes the case that Britain is not recovering from the 2008 financial crisis but that the US is on the way up. Say what? As ...
BBC's Biased Coverage of Capitalism
January 23, 2012
On the BBC website an interview was featured recently with the famous orthodox Marxist, Eric Hobsbawm, who promptly denounced capitalism as if he had established definitively its inferiority as a political economic system. Is the BBC such an irresponsible news ...
Gerald Celente on Trend Forecasting and the Crisis of Western Civilization
January 22, 2012
The Daily Bell is pleased to publish this interview with Gerald Celente. Daily Bell: Give us some trends feedback, please. In other words, put them into economic and sociopolitical context for our readers. First one, the West – where are we headed? Gerald Cel ...
Yes, The War for the Internet Has Begun
January 21, 2012
By now, people who use the Internet seriously, and even plenty who don't, are aware of the arrest of six-foot-seven, 300-pound Kim Dotcom, an outsize figure in the business of facilitating Internet downloads. The problem with his company, Megauploads, according ...
Accepting Human Nature
January 21, 2012
One of the basic truths of human psychological growth is this: If you want to change something about your life, you must first acknowledge and accept what's true about your life right now. The same principle applies to the improvement of human relationships and ...
More Economist Magazine Elite Promotions
January 20, 2012
Say, we've caught the Economist magazine with its pants down, metaphorically speaking anyway! Way back in July, we wrote about Ian Bremmer and how his book, The End of the Free Market, constituted another power elite dominant social theme. It was obvious then, ...
China Failing, as Predicted?
January 19, 2012
After writing many articles in the past few years – long before it was fashionable even among alternative news services – explaining that the ChiComs were on the proverbial thin ice with their huge 1.4 billion population, we find this weird article explaini ...
BBC Admits Anglosphere Destabilized Libya
January 19, 2012
And thus the Brits crow ... again. Or to put it more precisely, the Anglosphere power elite that is apparently behind much of this weary world's destruction and bloodshed. Why do they "allow" the release of this article on a functionary media of their own contr ...
Another Failure for the Elites as the EU Sinks?
January 18, 2012
One of our favorite mainstream journos, Ambrose Evans-Pritchard, writes in his Telegraph blog page that the current EU monetary union is bankrupting Europe. Good for him. More and more evidently, it's true. The question is, then, why insist on it? The facts are ...
Real Reason for Murdoch's PhoneGate … Press Regulation?
January 18, 2012
We have made to us what seems obvious – a commitment to analyzing direct history – and now many things are coming into focus. It now seems to us that this puffed-British phone-hacking scandal is nothing more than an effort by the powers-that-be to put into ...
