Back to the Articles
July 24, 2010
How would you like to begin a peaceful, legitimate political action which could roll back the last 100 years of government growth and national debt along with the hated federal income tax and the Fed? What if you could force Washington to return to a strong dol ...
Hungary's Malaise
July 24, 2010
Prime Minister Ference Gyurcsany, identified by some as "the golden boy" of Hungary's Socialist Party, got himself into serious trouble with many Hungarians for having admitted, in a leaked closed-door party conference speech, that during his two years term as ...
Jobless Spending Fights Recession
July 23, 2010
In this article we will debunk once more the idea that government can spend its way out of a recession. It is our modest contribution to the 21st century, which we can truthfully label an "Age of Misinformation," fortunately alleviated by the advent of the Inte ...
Does War Make a Hero?
July 23, 2010
The militarization of American society is a long-term project in our opinion. It began shortly after Vietnam when the Pentagon, confronting the wreckage of failed military policies, began a rehabilitation campaign that resulted in the formation of a private, vo ...
Central Bankers to Prick Bubbles
July 22, 2010
We can see from this brief synopsis that central banking, the artificial creation of money-stuff (especially the mercantilist variety) manufactures both inflation and asset bubbles. But in doing so, central bankers get to pose as combatants of the very problems ...
Internet Forces Honest Reporting?
July 22, 2010
Yesterday we reported on a startling cover story that appeared in Newsweek written by Richard N. Haass, the president of the famous Council on Foreign Relations, all-but-admitting the war in Afghanistan was a lost cause and suggesting ways that Western goals of ...
The Statist Truth About China
July 21, 2010
We have written numerous articles about the Chinese miracle with the intent of trying to explain that while China may have created a Western competitive face, the reality is otherwise. We have provided these articles because the current Western approach to Chin ...
Afghan War Over, as Predicted?
July 21, 2010
Thus it is that we were able to determine last year, far sooner than most (if not all) publications, that the American Federal Reserve was going to come under sustained attack; we made this prognostication when we noticed that the Fed was not mounting convincin ...
Obama's Professor Yoo
July 21, 2010
Don't believe it for a moment. The American Left, as a whole, does not support civil liberties. All that protestation of about Bush and Cheney's allegedly unconstitutional expansion of presidential powers was just a bunch of empty hand-waiving. The New York Tim ...
All Gold To Be Tracked?
July 20, 2010
This US law seems fairly invasive. Year-to-year, any payments to a vendor of more than US$600 will have to be reported to the IRS. While we were aware of this payment mandate, we hadn't fully realized the consequences for gold and silver until a feedbacker poin ...
Document Reveals Taliban Reintegration
July 20, 2010
We have long held that the war is being waged specifically and obviously against the Pashtun. But given that the two great tribes of this region both seem unfavorable to continued Western intervention, the West is likely unable to bring the war to a successful ...
When There Is No Rule of Law
July 20, 2010
Last week ended with some promising news on finally stopping the oil spill in the Gulf of Mexico. Unfortunately, the administration still seems to believe that shutting down working oil wells is a higher priority than effectively dealing with the broken one. Th ...
The Genius of Bernanke
July 19, 2010
We have no idea how the Wall Street Journal came up with this blog singing the praises of Bernanke. But we have excerpted the article above and used its rhetoric as an example of a specific trend. It shows once again how the elite seems immune to opposing viewp ...
Afghanistan – Better or Worse?
July 19, 2010
From our point of view the Afghanistan War is another dominant social theme that is failing. While some in the alternative news community maintain that the Afghanistan war is merely another phony war cooked up by CIA blowback, we don't think it is nearly that s ...
Paul Craig Roberts on Glass-Steagall, Free Trade and the Dangers of an Evolving Oligarchy of Private Interests
July 18, 2010
The Daily Bell is pleased to present an exclusive interview with Paul Craig Roberts. Mr. Roberts is an economist and a nationally syndicated columnist for Creators Syndicate. He served as an Assistant Secretary of the Treasury in the Reagan Administration earni ...
Senator Scott Brown's Disturbing Story
July 17, 2010
In this article we will briefly explore the collision between the Internet and the powers-that-be, and how it is changing the American political process - and thus the economic and investment climate. This is an ongoing process that has not yet reached a critic ...
Recycling a Beauty
July 17, 2010
Of course our era has its problems but these folks are really bonkers with their pessimism. What's more, they aren't upset with some of the real horrors of our time, such as the tyrannies and wars and oppression that go on in parts of the globe but with the goo ...
Blame Central Banking Not Banks
July 16, 2010
We do not believe that blaming the bankers gets it "just right." In fact, it is the most common of all dominant social themes – that economic downturns are the fault of big, powerful private interests. This sort of populism has been cultivated by the power-el ...
Financial Regulations Don't Work
July 16, 2010
The larger conversation encompasses a forthright and basic dominant social theme: "Capitalism is prone to error, and government corrects." How in the 21st century anyone can still subscribe to this formula, having seen the damage that government has wrought on ...
Don't You Try and Save!
July 15, 2010
The whole system is perverse. It has been set up by a power elite for purposes of consolidating wealth and control in THEIR hands, not for creating better and more prosperous civil societies. In normal, healthy societies, money is a tool of commerce not a metho ...
Building the Long War
July 15, 2010
In several previous articles we've examined the possibilities of the US opening a third (or fourth) military front with Iran. Certainly the US and its allies seem on track to do this and from our point of view the examination of this possibility, combined with ...
Shutting It All Down for the State!
July 15, 2010
We in America now we have a head of state who actually appears to accept this reactionary philosophy, judging by his eager embrace of the judicial philosophy of his former colleague from the University of Chicago Law School, now Harvard law professor Cass Sunst ...
Will the Dollar Crisis Spawn Chaos?
July 14, 2010
When is a report a dominant social theme and when is it reality? And when, perhaps (we wonder) is it both? These are serious questions to those who believe the Western world is manipulated by a power elite that wields dominant social themes as a way of further ...
Big Science Desperation Over God Particle
July 14, 2010
It is of course possible that Big Science will yield some conclusive and surprising results – perhaps all five God Particles, or even more. Equally feasible, it may yield inconclusive results that will be held up as conclusive because of all the vested intere ...
Iran War Even Closer?
July 13, 2010
Articles such as this one set the scene for the unthinkable – a three-front Middle East war. The US is embroiled in Iraq, no matter what proponents of the "surge" say. The Afghanistan war, as we have covered it, is getting larger without getting any better fr ...
Trade Wars Final Nail in Coffin
July 13, 2010
In retrospect, blaming the Great Depression on tariffs was a soft-libertarian solution. What do we mean by soft libertarian? We mean that proponents could make government the culprit without delving deeply into the real causes of the Great Depression. In a sens ...
Funding Corruption and Waste in Afghanistan
July 13, 2010
Last week, GOP chairman Michael Steele came under fire for daring to say what a lot of Americans already know - that our involvement in Afghanistan is an ill-advised quagmire with no end in sight. After nearly 10 years and approaching $1 trillion spent, the con ...
Nullification – the Freedom Meme
July 12, 2010
The Anglo-American power elite provides the Western world with dominant social themes. In the past, certainly in the 20th century, these themes worked wonderfully well. But today, many of these memes are under attack. When the elite muscles them forward nonethe ...
What's Behind Gold's Recent Moves?
July 12, 2010
As we pointed out in today's other article, we may be reaching a point where the elite's attempts to continually reinforce dominant social themes actually begin to be counter-productive. This may be seen in recent downward moves by the gold market. There are pl ...
Harry Schultz on the Power Elite, Free Markets, the Internet and Why Gold Is Going Much Higher
July 11, 2010
The Daily Bell is pleased to present an exclusive interview with Harry D. Schultz. Mr. Schultz has written scores of books and is considered a founder of the investment newsletter business. Based in Monaco, and now in his 80s, he has been producing his newslett ...
Internet Censorship Fear Campaign?
July 10, 2010
We have written previously of Internet censorship and have often pointed out the difficulties of making censorship stick with the current technology. Recently, the Internet has been hit with a spate of articles explaining how censorship is being implemented aro ...
Competitive Currencies Instead of the Euro Monopoly
July 10, 2010
A new study prepared by the Dutch financial institution, ING, called "Quantifying the Unthinkable," has warned that a collapse of the Euro as the European single currency would lead to a global economy cataclysm. The worldwide banking system would face a new an ...
Beginning of the End of the Afghan War?
July 09, 2010
This is very interesting news. Ann Coulter never met a Republican president or a Republican politician for that matter about whom she couldn't find something nice to say. Coulter is the kind of public intellectual that works in America, a polarizing figure with ...
Central Bankers Losing Control
July 09, 2010
Obviously the austerity meme has served its purpose. The world's central banking wise men seem far more worried now that, left unattended, the West will continue to struggle with deleveraging and price deflation. We have predicted this all along, running a seri ...
Save the EMU?
July 08, 2010
O, the horror! ING has issued a report that apparently concludes the break-up of the Economic and Monetary Union of Europe is simply unfathomable. The idea is that the pain and suffering that would be caused by its demise would spin the Western world into the l ...
Hypocrisy of the Fed
July 08, 2010
We thought this was an interesting article from the Associated Press because it shows so clearly how the power elite's dominant social themes operate. The Federal Reserve itself is an immensely destructive economic force as are central banks generally. By print ...
More Power for the Fed
July 08, 2010
The Federal Reserve Transparency Act would eliminate restrictions on GAO audits of the Federal Reserve and open Fed operations to Congressional oversight. Additionally, audits could include discount window operations, open market operations, and agreements with ...
Two Insidious Trends in America
July 08, 2010
Two powerful intellectual developments are ruining America. One is egalitarianism, the other pragmatism. The former is an effort at the highest levels of American education, at institutions such as Harvard University and the University of Chicago, for example, ...
China on the Brink?
July 07, 2010
Sometimes, as we have pointed out before, news is just news and information is just information. The power elite's dominant social themes are pervasive, but in order to maintain the credibility of mainstream news organizations, a good deal of real information m ...
The Heck With Homeopathy
July 07, 2010
It should be fairly clear to most who patronize the "alternative" media that there is a vast divide as regards health care and medicine. Many writers, speakers and researchers in the alternative 'Net media find mainstream medicine no more convincing than mainst ...
Libertarians Seek Rahn's Ideal State
July 06, 2010
Two brand new dominant social themes in a very short space of time, or at least that is the way we see it. The state has come under tremendous attack in the 21st century and we believe the powers-that-be are pushing back. (Why wouldn't they?) In aggregate, the ...
NASA Now Muslim Space Agency
July 06, 2010
For many people, the idea that NASA's mission is now essentially diplomatic rather than technological is, well ... weird. NASA is supposed to put astronauts in space and it would seem that the funding, infrastructure and professional talent that NASA has acquir ...
The Hubris of Central Bankers and the Ghosts of Deflation Past
July 06, 2010
In 2003, while the United States was at the end of another boom and bust cycle following the bursting of the "dot.com" bubble and the Y2K scare, there were many monetary central planners at the Federal Reserve and the European Central Bank who were expressing f ...
Floating Exchange Rates: Scheme to Embezzle the Dollar Balances of Surplus Countries
July 06, 2010
In putting pressure on China to follow Japan's example to revalue the yuan, the American money doctors fail to point out that they are in effect asking China to take a loss, similar to those of Japan amounting to hundreds of billions of dollars, on her holdings ...
Did Elites Expect a Depression?
July 05, 2010
The power elite, it has emerged in the era of the Internet, keeps control of Western institutions and authorities via dominant social themes. These fear-based promotions literally seem to organize society and ensure that people's energy and ambitions are channe ...
Afghanistan in Disarray
July 05, 2010
We have written many articles about the Afghan war recently because it has turned into something of a defining moment for Western hegemony. During the Cold War, the Anglo-American version of Western regulatory democracy could not be spread around the whole worl ...
America's Leadership Under Contention – Has Monetary, Fiscal and Political Excess Run Its Course?
July 05, 2010
I just finished reading Richard Russell´s 'Latest Remarks´. He sums things up with the following comment: "The bear keeps torturing the majority. If only the authorities could straighten out the oil problem, the housing problem and the unemployment proble ...
Rick Rule on Bail-Outs, Business Cycles and 10 More Years of a Golden Bull
July 04, 2010
The Daily Bell is pleased to present an exclusive interview with Rick Rule. Mr. Rule began his career in the securities business in 1974, and has been principally involved in natural resource security investments ever since. He is a leading investor specializin ...
July 4th Reflections and Revelations
July 04, 2010
Too many countries and governments in the world today expect that people are supposed to conform to manmade "laws" rather than the other way around. But when laws do not respect human nature, then nothing but trouble can result. The founders of America understo ...
A Declaration of Independence Against Big Government
July 04, 2010
What is usually not recalled is the long list of enumerated grievances that make up most of the text of the Declaration of Independence. The Founding Fathers explained how intolerable an absolutist and highly centralized government in faraway London had become. ...
