Statism Vs. Labor & Persons
April 06, 2011
Under hard line statism, such as centrally planned socialism and absolute monarchy, everyone belongs to society - there are no individuals, no privacy, no private property, etc. Thus, for instance, in Marxism all vital property is collectively owned and adminis ...
EU's Unraveling Preps Global Currency?
April 05, 2011
The footsteps of a global currency grow louder? That's one way to look at this report from the Economist Intelligence Unit. We don't believe for one moment that after spending trillions on unification, reorienting Europe's entire politics toward support of the ...
Buy the 'PITS' for Big Profits!
April 05, 2011
The analysts at Goldman Sachs are always coming up with acronyms that receive worldwide play. (Imagine being introduced at cocktail parties as the person who came up with this or that globally recognized acronym. What an icebreaker.) Anyway, why should they hav ...
The Fed Undermines Foreign Policy
April 05, 2011
Last week I was both surprised and pleased when the Supreme Court upheld lower court decisions requiring the Federal Reserve Bank to comply with requests for information made by Bloomberg under the Freedom of Information Act ("FOIA"). Bloomberg simply wanted to ...
Extortion in the Name of Science
April 05, 2011
While the country is going into more and more debt by the seconds, and while some even in Washington are beginning to be concerned – after all, their share of the loot taken from citizens year round and culminating on April 15th each year could shrink just as ...
Tax the Rich Before Society Explodes?
April 04, 2011
Gee, this is a blunt piece that Paul B. Farrell has written for MarketWatch. It is part of a larger theme on which he's elaborated in several columns, apparently. His perception is that the Super Rich (whoever they are) and the GOP are laboring under what he ca ...
The Psychopathology of Pop Hatred
April 04, 2011
One need only go on Youtube to be educated about the latest Anglo-American eruption of psychopathology, which is the almost insane hatred directed at "tween" pop stars. Of course the mainstream media has its own take. The reaction seems to be, generally, that i ...
Atlas Shrugged Part I, the Movie
April 04, 2011
I saw the movie Atlas Shrugged, Part I (to be released on April 15) and I liked it a lot, just as I did the book when I first read it in 1961 while serving in the US Air Force near Washington, DC. (The maiden ride of the John Galt Line was back then the most ri ...
Jim Rogers on the Dangers of Price Inflation, the Promise of Commodities and America's Continued Decline
April 03, 2011
The Daily Bell is pleased to present another exclusive interview with Jim Rogers. Rogers was a co-founder of the Quantum Fund, and is creator of the Rogers International Commodities Index (RICI). A native of Demopolis, Alabama, Jim Rogers was entrepreneurial fr ...
Cultivating the New World Order
April 02, 2011
The conservative libertarian writer Paul Craig Roberts has posted an article, "The New Colonialism: Washington's Pursuit of World Hegemony" that has received much attention from the alternative-news blogosphere. In this article, I want to comment on the story f ...
Death by a Thousand Budget Cuts
April 01, 2011
The larger dominant social theme of the DC elites remains the same: "Governing demands compromise." John Boehner himself has become a kind of walking political metaphor for this sort of business-as-usual; and it's probably a trap he will not easily be able to g ...
Smart Grid: Edge of the Authoritarian Wedge
April 01, 2011
Smart Grid is surely a Trojan Horse for an Anglo-American power elite that is hell-bent on controlling people's lives and reducing or eliminating their freedom of choice whenever possible. It is another signature of the authoritarian state and its aggressive im ...
G20 Considers Global Currency
March 31, 2011
The outlines of the drive toward a global currency are becoming clearer in our view. We're continually surprised by how fast events are moving and how orchestrated they seem if you follow them closely. We've already reported on the International Monetary Funds' ...
Portugal Advised to Beg
March 31, 2011
So now we know, perhaps, what US President Barack Obama was REALLY doing in Brazil last week. Is it coincidence? President Obama jets down to Brazil to talk to its (formerly Communist) president and she soon announces (see article excerpt above) that Brazil is ...
Is the Stock Market a Screaming Buy?
March 30, 2011
There are times in men's lives that provide enormous opportunity for the bold. This is one of them. Buy stocks now. Buy blue chips and not-so-blue chips. Buy. Buy more. Borrow and buy. But buy. Buy, Buy Buy!Is this really the case? Are stocks really a screaming ...
Darkness of the Royal Wedding
March 30, 2011
One watches the buildup and shudders. By the time this wedding is over, people will feel more strongly about Prince William and Kate Middleton than they do about members of their own family. The coverage is just as intense as when Princess Diana married Prince ...
Is Soros's One World Currency a Leftist Plot?
March 29, 2011
We'd realized last week (tipped off by a considerate feedbacker) just what George Soros was up to; but before we had a chance to write about it the Wall Street Journal blew the story open last night by picking up a Media Research Center article by Dan Gainor en ...
Pax Westphalia Dies, Middle East Writhes
March 29, 2011
When the Anglo-American elites do something big (like destabilizing the entire Middle East with CIA-supported "youth movements") it is often necessary to follow along for a while to figure out what's really going on. Eventually the elites themselves may clue yo ...
Constitutional Problems with the Libyan War
March 29, 2011
Last week the Obama Administration took the United States to war against Libya without bothering to notify Congress, much less obtain a Constitutionally-mandated declaration of war. In the midst of our severe economic downturn, this misadventure has already cos ...
Krugman, Academic Freedom & Phony Whining
March 29, 2011
In his column of March 28, 2011, Paul Krugman whines a good deal about how Republicans in Wisconsin are targeting scholars who may not like their opposition to public service union profligacy. No doubt, in these battles all sides can go overboard but let's just ...
Price Inflation Strikes South America, Too, IMF Warns
March 28, 2011
Thumpety thump thump. The sound of price inflation on the march. The IMF is worried about it; but the IMF's expressions of concern (see article excerpt above) put us in mind of the famous Lewis Carroll poem, The Walrus and The Carpenter. Both of them pretend to ...
War Thy Name is David Cameron
March 28, 2011
Oh, boy. This article in the Telegraph attempts to argue that war is actually a form of political conversation. It has not-so-artfully reversed the reality of war so that the act of violence and murder somehow becomes an expression of redemption for David Camer ...
Dr. Hans-Hermann Hoppe on the Impracticality of One-World Government and the Failure of Western-style Democracy
March 27, 2011
The Daily Bell is pleased to present an exclusive interview with Dr. Hans-Hermann Hoppe. Dr. Hoppe, born in 1949 in Peine, West Germany, studied philosophy, sociology, economics, history and statistics at the University of the Saarland, in Saarbruecken, the Joh ...
Carbon Exchange Blossoms in Kenya … Say What?
March 26, 2011
We've written a good deal about how elite promotions stumble forward in the era of the Internet, even if they've been discredited. Global warming is surely one of the best examples of this. We've also written about how the powers-that-be may intend for Africa t ...
A Sample of Government-at-Work
March 26, 2011
Where I live there's no mail delivery. All USPS mail has to be picked up at the post office. And at the post office the address is, well, a P.O. Box with its number. If one sends a piece of mail to the house address, the zip code must contain the post office bo ...
The Struggle to Control the Internet
March 25, 2011
Two recent news stories regarding government funding of the Internet have caught the attention of the blogosphere recently. The first has to do with a grant that the US is giving to the BBC (see above article excerpt) and the second involves a plea made by US S ...
The Anglosphere Counterattacks With Elite Icons
March 25, 2011
Sometimes when one looks for emergent power elite dominant social themes they are ridiculously easy to spot. One of the most obvious, though least discussed memes of the elite, is the presentation of powerful and talented people who are backers (or part) of the ...
EU Bust-Up Seems Closer As Portuguese Default Looms
March 24, 2011
The footsteps just got louder. The break-up of the EU as it is currently constituted, is coming closer in our view, as we can see from the latest bad news involving Portugal and its potential insolvency (see article excerpt above). For us, the continued unravel ...
US Task Force Brings New Pressure to Settle With the Taliban
March 24, 2011
The New York Times and a high-level US task force (see article excerpt above) released statements yesterday (the Times actually ran an editorial) calling for a negotiated solution to the Afghanistan war. As recently reported in these modest pages, the calls com ...
The Treasury Auction Shell Game
March 24, 2011
Very few people have either the time or patience to sift through the data released by the Treasury Department in the wake of its bond auctions. But the numbers do provide direct evidence of the country's current financial condition that in many ways mirror a fi ...
The Proper Promotion of Liberty
March 24, 2011
The policy of imposing liberal regimes around the globe has proven to be a disaster and no wonder. It is simply not feasible to coerce people to be free - the idea is an oxymoron. It doesn't follow, however, that countries that are largely committed, even if on ...
EU, Troubled Titan
March 23, 2011
Germany is the largest and most powerful EU state, but the German leadership seems unwilling to subordinate German self-interest to the larger dictates of the Eurozone. Unless Germany agrees to be treated like all the rest (especially the smaller states) - and ...
Bonds and BALCO … Again
March 23, 2011
Who knows how much the eight-year investigation into whether or not Barry Bonds knowingly ingested steroids has cost? Surely millions, perhaps tens of millions. In an article yesterday, we discussed the institutionalized insanity of the Anglo-American "war on d ...
US Kill Teams Target Afghan Civilians as Trophies
March 22, 2011
The longer these wars continue, the worse it gets. Young men, taught to kill with industrial efficiency (itself an unnatural act) may eventually exhibit psychopathologies that come with the ongoing pressures of "winning hearts and minds." In truth, there is ver ...
Surprise! Britain Discovers the War on Drugs Doesn't Work
March 22, 2011
Bankruptcy has a way of concentrating minds, and Britain is near bankruptcy. The pound is not a reserve currency, so British elites cannot print endless amounts of notes/pounds secure in the knowledge that the world will be forced to absorb them for energy-purc ...
Fed and Inflation
March 22, 2011
Last week, the subcommittee which I chair held a hearing on monetary policy and rising prices. Whether we consider food, gasoline, or clothing, the cost of living is increasing significantly. True inflation is defined as an increase in the money supply. All oth ...
Quick Response Puts Yen on the Line
March 22, 2011
One of the immediate financial consequences of the catastrophic Japanese earthquake is that Japan needs to call on its huge cache of foreign exchange reserves to rebuild its shattered infrastructure. To pay for domestic projects, Japan will require yen – not ...
The Fed Feels So Good
March 21, 2011
The Bloomberg article wants us to believe that employment is rising, inflation is better than deflation and the Fed as an institution will know exactly when to withdraw all the extra currency sloshing around in the system. But the central unfairness that has to ...
Women Are Better Warriors
March 21, 2011
A fundamental dominant social theme of the Anglo-American power elite so far as we can tell has to do with he innate superiority of the female sex. This is a touchy subject for both men and women, but it seems to be true - and we have written about the issue in ...
Bill Bonner on the Failing US Bond Market, the Coming Hyperinflation and the End of the Dollar Reserve System
March 20, 2011
The Daily Bell is pleased to present another exclusive interview with Bill Bonner. Since founding Agora Inc. in 1979, Bill Bonner has found success and garnered camaraderie in numerous communities and industries. A man of many talents, his entrepreneurial savvy ...
Another Obama War
March 20, 2011
Following the US-lobbied UN authorization of military murder in Libya, the death-dealing regime of Colonel Gaddafi said immediately that it would stop all killing. That put Obama's war on hold, for a little while. The crazy Colonel has learned a thing or two ab ...
Libya, The Good War?
March 19, 2011
In this article, I'll return to the point I made previously, not only in these pages but during one of my interviews with Russia Today on the topic: For one reason or another the Anglo-American elite wants regime change throughout the Middle East, and elsewhere ...
A Crucial Constitutional Fact
March 19, 2011
In my efforts to defend the free society and its basic principles, the idea of natural individual human rights, I run across the objection – advance by both conservatives and "liberals" – that once a constitution has been accepted, it overrides those princi ...
The Anglo-American Gaddafi Deception
March 19, 2011
One has needed a score card to keep up with the twists and turns of the situation in Libya and what will follow over the weekend is still unclear. My point is while we wish the people of Libya and their color revolution victory over crazy Gaddafi, they have lik ...
Silent Coup: EU Takes Over Europe?
March 18, 2011
The EU took over Europe the other day. Did you read about it? Perhaps you know erstwhile that Lady Gaga has a brand new single out about gender tolerance, though the video itself is chockfull of Illuminati symbolism and sado-masochist violence. And, oh, yes, by ...
Green Shoots of Price Inflation
March 18, 2011
In an article entitled "Ben and Barry's Inflation Problem" we pointed out the inevitability of price inflation in America and that it might well upset Barack Obama's plans for a second term. We indicated that we thought price inflation was likely sooner rather ...
Self-Debasement is Wrong
March 18, 2011
As a child and teen I had been very seriously abused, especially while in my father's "care". He had in mind to make me into a clone, forced me to do athletics relentlessly and when he detected any resistance on my part, beat me mercilessly. None of this result ...
Ben and Barry's Inflation Problem
March 17, 2011
Ben Bernanke's monetary stimulation has been pervasive and ongoing; it has also been historically massive. Never before has a central bank dumped US$20-$50 trillion into the marketplace within a two year time-span as the Fed under Bernanke seems to have done. A ...
Do Western Elites Really Care About Fukushima?
March 17, 2011
Japan has called in the cavalry. Having struggled with the failing nuclear reactors in Fukushima, Japan has requested US aid and the US has responded with a panoply of high-tech solutions. Sometime today, apparently, drones will soar over Fukushima in an attemp ...
Monetary Lunatics: Is QE3 Ahead?
March 17, 2011
Austrian School economists have often explained the business cycle using the metaphor of liquor or drugs. The expansion of paper money and credit gives a sense of exuberance, an economic high that leads to excessive risk-taking and ballooning production. But it ...
