U.S. Government to Run Budget Deficit Until 2038; How Can Money Printing Stop? / Politics / Government Spending

By: DailyGainsLetter

Mohammad Zulfiqar writes: The stock market is certainly getting all the attention these days, but not a lot is said about other disturbing fundamentals. These fundamentals are troublesome, and if they aren’t fixed, the U.S. economy could end up in a downward spiral in a very short period of time. With these conditions, those who are saving and investing for the long term can face a significant amount of scrutiny.

Top Reasons Why Everyone Needs a Second Passport / Politics / Social Issues

By: Casey_Research

By Nick Giambruno, Editor, International Man: Doug Casey has said over and over that spreading your political risk beyond one jurisdiction is the single most important thing he can recommend today.

Obtaining a second passport and citizenship in another country is a critical part in heeding Doug's advice.

This is because it's a fundamental step towards minimizing the political risk of being subjected to the whims of any single government.

Hijacking Your 401(k), The Government Wants to Grab Your Retirement Assets / Politics / Pensions & Retirement

By: Money_Morning

With Washington battling over what to do about its $16.4 trillion debt pile, rumors are swirling that the government will start taking 401(k) money to cure its fiscal ills.

There's plenty to take.

A study published by the Investment Company Institute in 2012 stated that U.S. retirement assets at the mid-point of the year totaled somewhere in the neighborhood of $18.5 trillion.

Ron Paul - What Was Not Said About Iraq / Politics / US Politics

By: Dr_Ron_Paul

October was Iraq's deadliest month since April, 2008. In those five and a half years, not only has there been no improvement in Iraq's security situation, but things have gotten much worse. More than 1,000 people were killed in Iraq last month, the vast majority of them civilians. Another 1,600 were wounded, as car bombs, shootings, and other attacks continue to maim and murder.

Economic Coup d’Etat: Debt and Deficit as Shock Therapy / Politics / Global Debt Crisis 2013

By: Global_Research

Ismael Hossein-zadeh writes: When Naomi Klein published her ground-breaking book The Shock Doctrine (2007), which compellingly demonstrated how neoliberal policy makers take advantage of overwhelming crisis times to privatize public property and carry out austerity programs, most economists and media pundits scoffed at her arguments as overstating her case. Real world economic developments have since strongly reinforced her views.

The Bank Guarantee That Bankrupted Ireland / Politics / Banksters

By: Ellen_Brown

The Irish have a long history of being tyrannized, exploited, and oppressed—from the forced conversion to Christianity in the Dark Ages, to slave trading of the natives in the 15th and 16th centuries, to the mid-nineteenth century “potato famine” that was really a holocaust. The British got Ireland’s food exports, while at least one million Irish died from starvation and related diseases, and another million or more emigrated.

Today, Ireland is under a different sort of tyranny, one imposed by the banks and the troika—the EU, ECB and IMF. The oppressors have demanded austerity and more austerity, forcing the public to pick up the tab for bills incurred by profligate private bankers.

Conspiracy And The Threat To Democracy / Politics / Propaganda

By: Andrew_McKillop

HYPOCRISY DEMOCRACY 
The deluge of news, views, opinions, theory and spin about everything from the weather – weather now means climate change – to why the price of gold is low and Facebook shares are high, or the outlook for economic growth in the US, Europe or Japan is what passes for 24/7 democratic open access information. Everybody has a right to too much bent information, but for the BBC's Brian Wheeler, October 26, the dark side of information – conspiracy theories – are destroying democracy. He says:

Aung San Suu Kyi Burma's Latest Tyrant / Politics / Dictatorship

By: Global_Research

Guy Horton writes: Aung San Suu Kyi is the international face of Burma and a global icon of courage, endurance and moral authority. But as Guy Horton reports from Burma, she is now actively colluding with the Burmese military’s violent campaigns against minority ethnic and religious groups.

One morning in January this year I stood near the front line between the Kachin Independence and Burma armies. The former was defending some of the last remnants of its territory. The latter was inflicting a massive attack consisting of tens of thousands of troops, supported by helicopter gunships and jet fighter bombers under the direction of the Supreme Command.

Entire Fiat Money System is Bankrupt: Demise of the Global US Fiat Dollar Reserve Currency / Politics / Fiat Currency

By: Global_Research

Matthias Chang writes: It’s been a while since I last wrote an article on the on-going financial crisis. I don’t write for the sake of writing, as others do because they have to do so, on account of their subscribers who pay hefty subscription fees and demand their money’s worth.

Major issues or trends do not change on a daily or even monthly basis. A trend may take a few years to run its course and unless there is a major factor that may affect the trend, there is hardly any need to comment any further on the trend or outcomes.

Israel's Latest Terror Attacks on Syria and Gaza, Netanyahu Dirty Tricks / Politics / Israel

By: Stephen_Lendman

Israel gets away with daily crimes of war, against humanity and slow-motion genocide. It does so with impunity. It does it because world leaders able to act do nothing.

Failure to hold Israel accountable reflects complicity with crimes too great to ignore. They’ve persisted for decades.

They show no signs of ending. On October 30, reports said Israeli warplanes struck Latakia. It’s Syria’s principle port city. Damascus was attacked. An administration official confirmed what happened.

Does the U.S. Dollar Have a Future? / Politics / US Dollar

By: Mike_Whitney

“If the dollar does indeed lose its role as leading international currency, the cost to the United States would probably extend beyond the simple loss of seigniorage, narrowly defined. We would lose the privilege of playing banker to the world, accepting short-term deposits at low interest rates in return for long-term investments at high average rates of return. When combined with other political developments, it might even spell the end of economic and political hegemony.”– Economist Menzie Chinn, “Will the Dollar Remain the World’s Reserve Currency in Five Years?”, CounterPunch 2009

Alan Greenspan Played Daily Show’s Jon Stewart, Federal Reserve Mainstream Media Propaganda / Politics / US Federal Reserve Bank

By: Janet_Tavakoli

Alan Greenspan, former chairman of the Federal Reserve board (August 1987 – January 31, 2006), recently appeared on The Daily Show with Jon Stewart. Greenspan said he didn’t see the financial crisis coming; he thought bankers would be better stewards of their capital. That was meant to be a apologia of sorts for the Fed’s bungling oversight of the banking system. According to Greenspan, banks didn’t understand their risks, and neither the Fed nor the banks can forecast well. He added that people on Wall Street are “screwy.” Greenspan says he always thought “screwiness” would wash out, since people “would act rationally in their long term self-interest.”

Europe's What-Else-Is-New Crisis Agenda / Politics / Euro-Zone

By: Andrew_McKillop

ECONOMIC SABOTAGE
Whenever Europe's politicians get bored with the perpetual-crisis agenda, they invent new crises. Recent add-ons feature NSA hacking of Angela Merkel's cellphone, proving she has interesting things to talk about. Why Europe is even further from economic recovery than the USA – in fact a long way – was hopefully one interesting thing she talked about with uninvited American listeners.

Gold, Silver and the Lost Generation / Politics / Gold and Silver 2013

By: Dr_Jeff_Lewis

“There are a thousand hacking at the branches of evil, to one who is striking at the roots." - Henry David Thoreau, 1846

Institutional trust and confidence continues to unravel as less and less participation, combined with isolation, threatens the middle class. As in all major crises throughout Anglo American history, the weight will be carried on the shoulders of the pragmatic caught in the middle.

Kiss Your Pension Goodbye! / Politics / Pensions & Retirement

By: Don_Miller

I was on the reunion committee for my 50-year high school class reunion a few years back. As we tried to track down classmates, we discovered that many—including a few I had known quite well—had died from lung cancer. These folks would light up a cigarette, joke about cancer sticks, cough, and make fun of their addiction. They ignored their symptoms and the constant warnings from their families and doctors, and they suffered the ugly consequences.

Bloomberg Television's Trish Regan interviewed NSA Director Keith Alexander today at Bloomberg Government's "Cybersecurity: Costs and Solutions" conference in Washington D.C. In response to a Washington Post report that claimed the agency has secretly tapped into main communication links that connect data centers internationally, Director Alexander said, NSA infiltration of servers "never happened," The director went on to call the report "spurious," and insisted that the NSA does "not have access to Google servers, Yahoo servers," and that ''those companies work with us, they are compelled to work with us."
