IMF Calls for SDR-Denominated Bonds
February 11, 2011

Forced Globalization of Trading Marts: Consolidation for Disaster
February 10, 2011

Frauds of WikiLeaks?
February 10, 2011
WikiLeaks in our estimation becomes an evermore-obvious charade, and Julian Assange its conductor. We've been writing about it for months now, and each new leak raises our suspicions. None of the leaks with the exception of the first – a damning video of Amer ...

West Builds Islam to Create a New War?
February 07, 2011

History Is Being Produced, Not Made
February 04, 2011

Economic Dreamtime Unravels
February 03, 2011
"Double-dip!" was the cry from some observers, "Don't panic!" the call from other quarters, including, to no one's surprise, the Government. The question is, does the GDP figure merely show that the coldest December in 100 years took a deep, but temporary toll, ...

The Simple Truth About Gold Leverage Programs
February 03, 2011
A lot of people ride motorcycles, but there's a reason most don't try to be Evel Knievel. Sure, there's a big reward if you can land a jump over 14 school buses – but what if you don't? A new craze among our competitors is to push gold buyers into "leveraged ...

Democracy Wont Help Egypt
February 02, 2011
Even without being a Egyptologist I can say with reasonable certainty that it will not help to solve Egypt's problems to make it into an unlimited democracy. What we are likely to get is Lebanon with the heavy hand of Hamas in charge there. In Egypt it looks li ...
Goldman Sachs Whistles Past EU Graveyard?
February 01, 2011
Jim O'Neill is the chairman of Goldman Sachs Asset Management and he believes the Eurozone is healthy enough (see article excerpt above) to carry on. For us, this may constitute a dominant social theme of sorts. The Anglo-American elite, which helped create the ...

'Buy the Dow' While the US Wilts?
January 31, 2011

Specter of Islam Spreads
January 31, 2011
In our view, these governments would tend toward a stronger Islam over time. In part, the West attempts this sort regime change to further create the illusion of resurgent Islam in order to buttress its own war on terror. The war on terror is a ruse that allows ...

Fall of Saudi Arabia to End Dollar Reserve System?
January 28, 2011

Davos: Leaders Float 'New Reality' Meme – Will It Work?
January 27, 2011

Too Tough to Cut?

Government Regulations: Demeaning and Costly
January 26, 2011

On Real Respect for the Constitution
January 25, 2011

'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 ...
