US Economic Recovery of Lies
June 02, 2010
The trouble with economic reporting in the West is that it simply does not tell the truth. This AP story is a good example. Its main point is that the American "recovery" is not going to be strong enough to provide enough jobs for the 15.3 million unemployed. N ...
Taking Aim at Iran
June 02, 2010
A recent article of ours about "evil Jews" caused a bit of a stir. We were roasted for referring to Jews as evil (even ironically) and we also were hit on the other side by those who were upset that we didn't come right out and admit that Israel generally and t ...
Put Patients and Doctors Back in Control of Healthcare
June 02, 2010
Most everyone agrees that health care in the United States has major problems, the biggest problems relating to skyrocketing costs. No one doubts the system is in need of reform. However, too many in Washington see tighter government controls as the solution. I ...
China Blows Up?
June 01, 2010
When we first predicted the overheating of the Chinese economy early last year, we could hardly find a word about it. Nonetheless, it was clear to us that no economy grows at 10-percent per quarter normally - year-in and year-out - without some very strong mone ...
US Diverts Flight to Capture 'Muslim'
June 01, 2010
There are many ways of promoting an elite dominant social theme. In the case of the myriad major memes and minor themes that the Anglo-American elite inflicts on long-suffering Western citizens, there are verbal and written promotions, and then there are promot ...
Tea Party Versus ACORN, etc.
June 01, 2010
It is one thing to be against the ideas of some organization, quite another to be against organizing itself. Why would organizing be proper and commendable for Leftist causes but not for those of the Right? The Tea Party isn't some criminal gang burning down bu ...
EU Spins Out of Control
May 31, 2010
What a mess. As can be seen by the article excerpt above, the European Union threatens to come apart at the seams. The debt "contagion" is obviously not stopping, nor can it, given the monstrous overhang that is now being presented to world markets. Spain has b ...
Aliens, the Next Fear-Based Meme?
May 31, 2010
At this point, we would put nothing past the power elite when it comes to fear-based promotions. The global warming promotion was amazingly audacious, and we have no illusion that the elite has ceased to flog it. While we haven't dealt with it specifically in t ...
Rights May Never Be In Conflict
May 31, 2010
If rights were no more that fancy ways of expressing preferences – in short, if morality and politics could only produce emotional expressions-there would be no doubt about the possibility of conflict between rights. Those who embrace the emotivism of the lik ...

Canada Creates Own SEC
May 29, 2010
Here is what Canada's industrialist and regulators ought to keep in mind. There are plenty of places to mine in the world and plenty of well-capitalized entrepreneurs outside of Canada. Regardless of the reasons for the current SEC legislation, we would have to ...
The Ron Paul Story
May 29, 2010
While we usually focus on the dominant social these of the elite, we wanted to take the time over this weekend to comment on the Paul clan and how it has been shaking up the political establishment. We are aware of the reports circulating that Ron Paul is part ...
Euro Crisis to Set One World Currency?
May 28, 2010
As the money crisis seems to grow worse in Europe, we have begun to wonder if there are parallels to the 1907 financial panic in the United States that gave rise to the Federal Reserve. The dominant social theme way back then (assuming an active power elite, an ...
SEC to Rule All Trades All the Time
May 28, 2010
So it has come to this. In America, anyway, and surely in Europe too, regulatory authorities wish to be empowered to look at every click, every number, every trading strategy of ANYONE in order to detect fraud and make sure that markets are fair, open and trans ...
Are Kids Altruists?
May 28, 2010
I will not address whether babies have a sense of right versus wrong, only the way this matter was reportedly tested by the researchers who investigated it. Paul Bloom and his wife, Karen Wynn, of the Infant Cognitive Center at Yale University, conducted studie ...
Money Supply Plunging Toward Depression?
May 27, 2010
The talk in the United States, especially, and Britain, too, is one of recovery. Even in Europe, we noted recently, there are digital maps available that show much of the Eurozone is coming out of "recession" and various indicators are turning positive. We have ...
Vanunu Jailed by Evil Jews?
May 27, 2010
We are not much impressed by Israeli justice when it comes Mordechai Vanunu who has paid with a good deal of his life for apparently exposing Israel's nuclear arsenal. Presumably his persecution is supposed to be a warning to others not to tell Western media ab ...
Copycat Republicans Seek Answers
May 26, 2010
We are more apt to consider these twin initiatives to be promotions rather than serious efforts to address serious Western dilemmas. Yet even their existence, no matter the outcome, indicates that the elites are well aware of the rising level of discontent in t ...
US Wavers on Afghan War?
May 26, 2010
Those focused on protecting and building their investments, should follow the manipulations of the power elite and their themes closely in an attempt to figure out what may occur next. There is no surety in terms of a correct interpretation, but by tracking the ...
Who Is Free to Discriminate?
May 26, 2010
Everyone who is awake discriminates – it is what people do with their minds, it's the way they know the world, more or less well. The kind of discrimination that's objectionable is when people use irrelevant attributes of others to classify them – like thei ...
Europe Braces for Chaos
May 25, 2010
For several years now, we've been covering the power elite's dominant social theme as regards the European Union. And what is that? It seems to be ... "Only regional and even global governance can prevent another world war (or at least pan-European war) from ha ...
Desperation of the US Republican Elite
May 25, 2010
So many of the fundamental processes put in place by the power elite and sustained by a vast matrix of educational, media, military and civilian authorities are foundering that it is difficult to know exactly what is going to happen next. But we will predict th ...
More Blank Checks to the Military Industrial Complex
May 25, 2010
Congress, with its insatiable appetite for spending, is set to pass yet another "supplemental" appropriations bill in the next two weeks. So-called supplemental bills allow Congress to spend beyond even the 13 annual appropriations bills that fund the federal g ...
Traditional American Values Are Dead and Buried?
May 24, 2010
Working closely together, we Bell staffers have developed a most un-libertarian, hive-like mentality. These days, buzzing in our bee-brains are recollections, often, of the compelling Claudius books by Robert Graves. What comes to mind, however, is not so much ...
UN Swaps One Fear for Another
May 24, 2010
The difficulty with attempting to decipher elite memes and actions in the era of the Internet is that as the workability of fear-based memes has decreased, the level of uncertainty regarding elite actions – and their effectiveness – has actually increased. ...
Dealing With Racists in a Free Market
May 24, 2010
Finally, the Rand Paul furor, we have an issue in politics worthy of sustained, serious attention – How should people who act badly be dealt with? More particularly how should people who discriminate based on irrelevancies such as race, sex, national origin, ...

Rand Paul Disappoints?
May 22, 2010
Yesterday, when all 1,000 of us – the writers, editors and coffee go-fers of the Daily Bell staff – gathered around a conference table the length of a football field in our Pentagon-sized editorial office to decide on today's Bell article, it didn't take us ...
Freedom of Association and Rights
May 22, 2010
A big flaw of the famous 1964 Civil Rights law is that it engages in regimenting who may or must associate with whom in private commerce. Among free men and women no such regimentation by government is permissible even if, to quote one prominent Republican "it ...
Does Anti-Obama Fever Drive US Elections?
May 21, 2010
From our point of view an element of the American punditry is working overtime trying to portray upcoming House and Senate elections as an anti-Obama pro Republican mandate. In fact, we believe that such portrayals are part of a larger dominant social theme - t ...
Scandal Over Blood Doping Hits Cycling
May 21, 2010
In the 1960s, radical elements of the youth movement were impassioned about sociopolitical issues but, as we recall it, often went out of their way to exempt sports - certain sports anyway - from their arguments. It wasn't that sports didn't partake of the same ...
Beware an 'American Style' Federalized EU
May 21, 2010
The corrupt, power-hungry EU elites like politicians here in America are always ready to use a crisis to advance their agenda of accumulating power, increasing taxes and controls over local governments and independent citizens. Contrary to their false promises ...
US War Crowd Losing Steam?
May 20, 2010
We try analyze the elite's dominant social themes here at the Bell; but it has occurred to that when it comes to the victory of Rand Paul in Kentucky, we would tend to believe the elite doesn't know how to spin it. Rand Paul is an anti-foreign war, anti big-gov ...
German Anger Rises Against Afghan War
May 20, 2010
We have identified two of the power elite's most fragile current themes as the EU and the war in Afghanistan. The break-up of the EU (or at least the foundering of the euro) is increasingly a viable possibility from our point of view. The ongoing, slow-motion u ...
UK Surveillance State Deflates?
May 19, 2010
The idea that the British Queen herself – with a putative worth in the trillions – will apparently make such statements as these only adds to the strength of what we would have to believe is a considerable rhetorical reversal. Given the endless attempts of ...
More Trading Curbs for NYSE
May 19, 2010
We wonder that anyone can report these issues with a straight face anymore. Well, obviously Reuters can. But at what point do observers finally say "enough" when it comes to regulatory democracy and its ever-evolving attempts to "fix" elements of industry that ...
Charles Krauthammer's Fallacy
May 19, 2010
In a recent discussion about the war on drugs Charles Krauthammer, the most avidly conservative columnist in the nation's capital (and who writes for The Washington Post), defended the war by comparing the abuses associated with it – such as police raids on h ...
Greek Banking Crack-Up Exposed
May 18, 2010
Above and beyond the contradiction between its strategies and goals, the elite is struggling with two other factors in Europe. First, the downturn is far worse than expected and is causing considerable tension between elite players themselves (Sarkozy, Merkel, ...
Afghan Poppy Farmers Attacked by NATO?
May 18, 2010
If indeed Western intelligence agencies are responsible for the sudden Afghan poppy plague, let us be clear: It will go down in the annals of counter-intelligence as one of the stupidest blunders ever made by the West's blinkered spooks. It would be a classic c ...
The Government as Identity Thieves
May 18, 2010
The spotlight remains on the Greek sovereign debt crisis as the riots continue. The terms of the Greek bailout from the IMF and Eurozone countries remain contentious with citizens on all sides. Europeans hate having their governments throw public money away as ...
Just Goldman?
May 17, 2010
There is (just so we don't leave anyone in suspense) an Anglo-American elite with European roots, an intermingling of royal and industrial families and Venetian bankers probably tracing their antecedents back to Rome and beyond, perhaps even apocryphally to Bab ...
Military Madness Without End
May 17, 2010
The mess in Afghanistan has even Saudi Arabia concerned. In our humble opinion Afghanistan has been tortured enough after some 30 years of intermittent, cyclical war. And we wonder why the leaders of the Anglo-American axis continue to believe the blood-lettin ...
Thomas James DiLorenzo on Abraham Lincoln, U.S. Authoritarianism and Manipulated History
May 16, 2010

Wheels Falling Off Euro?
May 15, 2010
What a day Friday was! The Daily Bell began its coverage of both the falling euro (and the failing EU) by pointing out that (as predicted), the power elite and the EU political elite, particularly, were using the EU "crisis" as a way to call for increased centr ...
The New Austrian School of Economics
May 15, 2010
The Austrian School of Economics dates its beginnings back to the publication in 1871 of a slender volume: The Principles of Economics(Grundsätze der Volkwirtschaftslehre) by Carl Menger. The adjective "Austrian" was meant to be derogatory, introduced by eco ...
As Predicted, EU Leaders Seek 'US of Europe'
May 14, 2010
So maybe the power elite doesn't have in mind raping and looting Europe and leaving after all, as some in the alternative press have recently been reporting. (Yes, they'll rape and loot, but they'll likely stick around just as we've been suggesting this past we ...
IMF Plotting Gold-Backed SDRs?
May 14, 2010
International currencies are much in the news these days (see other article, this issue) and in this article we will contemplate two rhetorical goalposts that the power elite could use to move the world further on down the field toward a single Western internat ...
Hyperinflation or Hyperdeflation
May 14, 2010
James Turk's article Hyperinflation Looms dated April 20, 2010, is based on Quantity Theory of Money (QTM). It draws an analogy between Weimar Germany of 1923 and the United States of 2010. Both precepts are invalid. As far as the QTM is concerned, it suffices ...
Europe's (and our coming) Tragedy of the Commons
May 14, 2010
The gist of the tragedy is that commonly held (important) resources will be depleted and will not be replenished. And this doesn't apply only to how the wilds are being ruined by being held in common but also to national treasuries which everyone in a country b ...
Fiat Central Banks Down for the Count?
May 13, 2010
Because the Bell is perhaps the only publication singularly dedicated to reporting on the power elite's dominant social themes and how they are promoted and faring, our coverage often veers off from both the mainstream media's AND that of the alternative press. ...
