Tunisia Promotion Now Failing?

Government Regulations: Demeaning and Costly
January 26, 2011

On Real Respect for the Constitution
January 25, 2011
I am pleased that the Constitution has received a lot of attention in recent weeks, thanks to the tea party movement. The 112th Congress kicked off with a reading of the Constitution on the floor of the House. It goes without saying that Members of Congress sho ...
'Super Stagflation' End Game?
January 24, 2011
Another facile media explanation. (See excerpt above.) The Telegraph gets it half right. Stagflation is not caused by "higher oil prices" but by monetary policy. The West is about to embark on an episode of what we wil call - for lack of a better term - "Super ...
US Levels, Rebuilds Afghan Village
January 24, 2011

Civil Discourse Revisited
January 22, 2011

Private Alternatives to Modern Banking
January 20, 2011
There must be a need for banks and bankers. We're not surprised. We are on record as stating that one of the power elite's most critical dominant social themes is the necessity for the banking industry, including most importantly central banking. Thus it is, in ...
Internet Creates One World Order?
January 20, 2011

China's Inflation Problem Looms Large
January 20, 2011

'Dreamtime' Rolls Along
January 19, 2011

January 19, 2011

There Is No Business Like Bond Business

For some nine years I have been predicting that the economy is going to a recession morphing into a depression, using a purely theoretical argument. The essence of my argument is that the open market operations of the Fed cause a protracted decline in interest ...
End of Euro? … Ireland Prints Own Notes
January 18, 2011
Was this the week the euro gave up the ghost and the EU threw in the proverbial towel? Analyzing the Anglosphere's dominant social themes is not an easy avocation and one looks for documentable breakthroughs. We have been fortunate to find several during the ti ...
Western Elites Secretly Still Building Islam?
January 18, 2011
Is the war on terror a success? The Anglo-American elite needs an enemy if the authoritarianism that is rising in the West is to continue - because despotism (and globalism) is more easily created when there is an outside enemy. But fighting against 100 Al Qaed ...
On Gun Control and Violence
January 18, 2011

Stupid Wager or Clever Prestidigitation?
January 18, 2011
"Heads – you win; tails – I lose." Such is the message the Fed sends to bond speculators. But why would the Fed offer such a stupid wager? Read on. The Fed is trying to bribe bond speculators with risk-free profits. That's how the Treasury/Fed check-kiting ...
Shock – Big Media Fault Elite Finance
January 17, 2011
Usually we present an article in the mainstream media that confirms a dominant social theme of the power elite, but in this case, we've chosen one (see excerpt above) that is not supportive of elite promotions. In fact, the article focuses on author Richard Dun ...
Tunisia Anarchy Meme
January 17, 2011

Perpetual War for Perpetual Employment?
January 15, 2011

Central Banking Tsunami
January 14, 2011
Very interesting. The economy will grow by three to four percent in 2011, according to Federal Reserve Chairman Ben Bernanke, but unemployment will remain. Meanwhile, according to Bernanke, the horrid spectre of deflation has been averted for the moment. Finall ...
The New Feudalism
January 14, 2011
A new feudalism is being born. It is a quite deliberate effort of the power elite in our view, but people don't notice it - or haven't verbalized it - because it is difficult to analyze something when one is in the middle of it. But the feudal evolution is sure ...
The China Dilemma
January 13, 2011
In a problematic global economy, China is being cast as the ultimate Asian Tiger. It is seen as challenging America from a military standpoint and even, eventually, of challenging the dollar's tottering role as the world's reserve currency. China is not doing m ...
US Pouring Billions Into Failed Afghan Projects
January 13, 2011
What is going on in Afghanistan is increasingly unsupportable. Populations and countries have their own tendencies; ultimately they revert to them. Attempting to Westernize Afghanistan, an ancient, tribal society, at the point of a gun is likely a fool's errand ...
An Extremist and Proud of It
January 13, 2011
Yes, I am that for sure, an extremist. I am totally against taxes, consider them extortion. I think all government regulations are vile, cases of prior restraint and thus unjust. I think a government has only the function assigned to it in the Declaration of In ...

Gun Confiscation Frustration
January 12, 2011

It's a Massacre, Stupid
January 12, 2011
What happened in Tucson, AZ, was a massacre and not a tragedy. Perhaps some view this a pedantic detail but it isn't - words do have meaning and a tragedy, as anyone familiar with ancient Greek literature or a bit of Shakespeare will testify, takes place when b ...
Big New Book Treads Old Economic Memes
January 11, 2011
Dambisa Moyo first book, Dead Aid, was certainly impressive. Moyo, a woman of color with a distinguished background, was not afraid to explain how Western aid was hurting impoverished countries. Coming from such a person, the accusations carried weight, and man ...

Elite 'Cult of the Expert' Erodes
January 10, 2011

Elite's Frustration With Meme Nullification
January 10, 2011
We watch and analyze the memes of the elite with considerable fascination. This last week brought us what we consider to be two dominant social themes that are very close to the collective heart of the elite. One was simply infuriating and the other was tragic. ...
What's the Matter With Money?
January 10, 2011

Brussels' Bogus Bank Regulations
January 07, 2011
Another day, another meme. This is one of the older ones and its reoccurrence shows us more clearly than ever that elite propaganda is neither innovative nor complex. This latest eruption from the EU, then, is no surprise. Just yesterday in an article entitled ...
Wakefield Accused of Further Vaccine Fraud
January 07, 2011
Dr. Wakefield's journey into medical purgatory continues. He initially co-authored a study back in 1998 that suggested that a link between autism and vaccines deserved further study. Since then his views have hardened. He has been outspoken about the dangers of ...
Somerset Maugham & I
January 07, 2011

Necessity of the Plutocracy?
January 06, 2011
