Global Warming and the Undead
November 09, 2010
The world has certainly not recovered from the Dark Age of the 20th century when it seem every single facet of Western civilization was corrupted to serve the purposes of a Western global elite determined to implement global government. Economics, polity, educa ...

Reject the Welfare/Warfare State
November 09, 2010
Last week's midterm elections have been characterized as a victory for grassroots Americans who are fed up with Washington and the political status quo. In particular, the elections are being touted as a clear indicator that voters demand reductions in federal ...
Tree Hugger Hypocrisy
November 09, 2010
I live in Silverado Canyon, about 7 miles east of Irvine Lake in Orange County, California, and it is a very pleasant place except for the fact that there is a small group of residents who want to dominate the place with their personal life style. They are bent ...
Currency Dreams of the Elite
November 08, 2010
We return to what is obviously a crux issue for what we call (with increasing irony) Western civilization. It could be seen as fairly simple. The Western power elite is perhaps reaching a turning point in world affairs. For at least a century in our humble view ...
Is Paul Dead?
November 08, 2010
It has occurred to us that in the 20th century, especially the later 20th century, that art and literature became subject to the promotional agenda of the Anglo-American power elite. This makes sense to us if one grants that the elite comprise an extraordinaril ...

Rise of India?
November 06, 2010
We must confess if there is one country that remains a mystery to us, it is India. India's former city-states may have hosted some of the world's most ancient advanced cultures and civilizations. But Indian pre-history and archeological evidence has received sh ...
Yes! PBS (and NPR) Ought to Go!
November 06, 2010
ctually, I don't care how Let wing any national medium happens to be, so long as I am not forced to pay even a penny for its upkeep. There are dozens of very prominent magazines with a Left wing editorial policy – The Nation, Progressive, Mother Jones, Utne R ...
Bernanke's Squeeze
November 05, 2010
We have noticed that power elite promotions continue to churn along, no matter what kind of evidence is produced to derail them. Federal Reserve Chairman Ben Bernanke's odd editorial in the Post (excerpted above) is further evidence of this. He is not about to ...
Internal Contradictions at EU's Heart
November 05, 2010
The Telegraph's inimitable Ambrose Evans-Pritchard is at it again, pointing out inconvenient facts that the Eurocrats don't want noticed and most of the rest of the mainstream press will not report (until it's too late). In this case, he's pointing out that Iri ...
The Myth of the Modern Stock Market
November 04, 2010
The stock market is "up." The Dow is over 11,000. We wonder how much of this is accounted for by inflation. But even if it represents solid equity achievement, what is it telling us? We remember in the late 1990s reading a spate of articles explaining how brand ...
China: No Moon Landing Soon
November 04, 2010
We return to the moon landings because it is important to establish (in our view) whether the Anglo-American power elite faked the Apollo flights. Let us say at the outset what we have written before that there is no way currently of stating decisively that Ame ...
Two Cheers for the Gridlock
November 04, 2010
On one of those few occasions that I have managed to rub elbows with a hero of mine, I caught Milton Friedman on a TV program endorsing the gridlock in Washington during a recent administration – I believe it was President Bill Clinton's second term. One poin ...
How Western Powers May Have Blown It
November 03, 2010
We have been examining in these past few days, the future of money and have offered our clairvoyant feedbackers and larger audience a perspective that is not focused necessarily on an imminent US economic meltdown. That is not to say it won't happen, but we hav ...
Triumph of the Tea Party?
November 03, 2010
Given that American midterm elections have just taken place, we wanted to offer another article on politics – this time with two perspectives that oppose each other. Yesterday we pointed out that an analysis of US electoral perspectives focusing on the Americ ...
More Real Bill Fallacies
November 03, 2010
In the first article of my two-part series on the Real Bills Doctrine (RBD), in commenting on the Daily Bell's interview with Professor Lawrence H. White on October 10, 2010, I made the central point that the source of commercial credit is not saving but consum ...
The Golden Promotion?
November 02, 2010
Is the current doom and gloom regarding the dollar (versus gold and silver) a bit ... manufactured. We only point this out because as soon as the mainstream media starts banging the drums for a given point of view, we become a bit skeptical. To find an article ...
Libertarian Wave?
November 02, 2010
Most of the analysis about the American elections taking place has to do with "anger." The Democrats are said to be dejected over President Barack Obama's lack of progressiveness. He has not been radical enough or statist enough. Republicans are said to be upse ...
Saudi Arms Deal is About Iran
November 02, 2010
This month the US Administration notified Congress that it intends to complete one of the largest arms sales in US history to one of the most repressive regimes on earth. Saudi Arabia has been given the green light by the administration to spend $60 billion on ...
The Unbearable Lightness of Being Jon Stewart

November 01, 2010
Hard-money writer David Bond has composed a short but cogent update (excerpted above) that spells out what could be going on with the gold and silver markets now and in the near future. It's his impression (and the impression of some Bell feedbackers, as we not ...
The Observers
November 01, 2010
Many contemporary intellectuals have a problem. They are theoretically committed to the idea that they can be no more than observers of human life and make no value judgments about it. This is because the philosophical basis for evaluating people, their conduct ...

Is Unrest the EU's New Normal?
October 30, 2010
In our extra-large conference room sit 1,000 elves in various stages of disarray with battered, colorful, conical hats, many of them refugees from the misery of St. Nick's disintegrating manufacturing processes. It is a "close" environment, to be sure but bette ...
Real Bills and Gold
October 30, 2010

Equality Is Only a Cheap Dream
October 30, 2010

Debriefing a Sovereign Money Hater
October 29, 2010
We just had an argument with a furious friend of ours and since we are tired of being shouted at, we will now present the argument of our friend and the crux of his cranky argument. It is a little like lancing a boil, we suppose. Please bear in mind, by the way ...
Recycling Memes: The Biodiversity Promotion
October 29, 2010
Well, they are at it again. Usually we try very hard to produce articles that are not being currently reported on within the alternative 'Net media. In this case, we will have to settle for making a statement about an obvious new promotion that is currently bei ...
The US$200-Trillion Debt Which Cannot Be Named
October 28, 2010
For us, this shows as much as anything else how controlled the system really is. It's just a fiction and has little resemblance to reality. Institutions are said to flee to the "safe-haven" of the US dollar when they are nervous. But as Kotlikoff shows, the saf ...
Is the Internet an Ethically Corrosive Technology?
October 28, 2010
This is an interesting article. We have noted that the Rothschild family generally and Sir Evelyn Robert de Rothschild in particular seem to be taking a higher profile of late. We remember when he was interviewed about the financial crisis by the "money honey," ...
Is There Life After Sudden Death of the International Banking System?
October 28, 2010

Charity and Generosity That Aren't
October 28, 2010
In a recent stump speech urging people to keep Democrats in power, President Obama told his audience that America is a country based in large measure on the principle that "we are all our brothers' keepers." This is not true, but even if it were and even if tha ...

October 27, 2010

Afghanistan: An Even Longer War?
October 27, 2010
The idea that the West has attacked first Afghanistan and then Iraq for oil and commodities, especially, provides us with a kind of Marxist or Leftist perspective. This perspective has also created the Long War scenario in which the West and particularly the An ...
Democracy and Human Rights
October 27, 2010
Tim Snyder made a very important observation on democracy and human rights in a recent piece for The New York Review of Books. He wrote, "As important as democratic procedures might be, opponents of communism in Eastern Europe spoke more often of human rights. ...
Why the West is Losing
October 26, 2010
The dollar was knocked down on Monday, apparently by the perception that BRIC countries would not be buying dollars to weaken their own currencies. This is of course a kind of knee-jerk professional trading reaction. But most traders work for big bank currency ...
Space Aliens Intervene in 2014?
October 26, 2010
Is it important when an intergalactic council puts aside the "law of non-intervention" to help rescue humanity from its own dilemmas? In this case, NORAD'S Stanley Fulham, who recently predicted UFOs over major cities on October 13, is announcing the rescue mis ...
Government and Job Creation
October 26, 2010
As the current economic downturn shows no signs of lifting, we hear quite a lot of rhetoric from current and potential office-holders about what government can and will do to create more jobs. This is especially disconcerting to those who understand that the be ...
Anti-Intellectualism Among Animal Rights Advocates?
October 26, 2010
It is only a small sample but it comes from a significant corner of the academic community, a law school where I was invited to give a talk on the debate about animal rights. I did deliver such a talk at the University of Wisconsin, Madison, law school on Octob ...
What's Behind the US Currency Promotion?
October 25, 2010
From our point of view, the US is basically devaluing the dollar and asking other countries to go along with it, while taking haircuts on their own dollar holdings. Additionally, the US, basically, is asking other countries to suffer for ongoing US profligacy. ...
Pakistan Pushes Back Against Western Elites
October 25, 2010
Pakistan will understand eventually that it is in its best interest to go along with US demands. But not yet! We have noted that the relationship between US/NATO and Pakistan needs more than a little help. The US and NATO have been putting a good deal of pressu ...

The Day the Earth Shook; China Dictates to G20
October 23, 2010
On Friday, if this quiet Reuters report is to be believed, a 100-year-old Anglo-American conspiracy to create one-world government may have begun to seriously founder. Yes, that is perhaps a bold statement (for those who believe in an elite-conspiracy in the fi ...
Elite Postpones Earth's Demise?
October 23, 2010
A new book has just been published, and we are indebted to a feedbacker for bringing it to our attention. Our feedbackers are generally far more insightful and clever than we are, so we are not surprised when they notice something we don't (even all 1,000 of us ...
2010 Is Just Deck Chair Politics on the USS Titanic
October 23, 2010
The political consensus is following the 2010 election, the Tea Partiers and the GOP establishment will breathe a sigh of relief and celebrate their victory and our two-party monopoly system of government will continue as before. A GOP House majority will check ...
France: Can You Hear Us Now?
October 22, 2010
Until recently we have been somewhat alone in trying to explain the reality of what was taking place in Europe. In a series of articles, we predicted that Europe would blow up sooner or later, because Europe was basically a tribal environment and, in fact, a pa ...
The Big Science Promotion Grows Stranger
October 22, 2010
In a series of articles, we have explored what we consider to be the risibility of building multi-billion dollar Big Science machines like colliders to enhance scientific understanding. Our point, though we have never entirely boiled it down to its essence unti ...
Global Economy on Brink – Where's Lady Gaga?
October 21, 2010
What do you know about Lady Gaga's concert schedule? The riots in France have kept her from honoring several commitments in Paris, and there were a good many articles on the subject (generally) last time we checked Google. But we could not find a single one on ...
Cameron and Sarkozy Build EU Army
October 21, 2010
Recently we wrote an article pointing out that the European Union was an Anglo-American invention. We offered this perspective to counter the growing elite sub dominant social theme that the EU was really being run by secret German Nazis who had plotted for hal ...
