Ron Paul on Obamacare Overreach / Politics / US Politics

By: Dr_Ron_Paul

Many religious conservatives understandably are upset with the latest Obamacare mandate, which will require religious employers (including Catholic employers) to provide birth control to workers receiving healthcare benefits. This mandate includes certain birth control devices that are considered abortifacients, like IUDs and the "morning after" pill.

Unemployment, Foreclosures, Rising Debts and Despair: AMERICA'S SOCIAL CRISIS / Politics / Social Issues

By: Bob_Chapman

Best Financial Markets Analysis Article2012 is going to be a difficult year, but not as dreadful as anticipated. The neutralization process, as usual, we covered over by the availability of money and credit. We have already seen that via Fed $1 trillion loans to the ECB and the admission by the Fed that QE 3 is on the way. In Europe banks have borrowed $3.2 trillion and they find they will need $1 trillion more. These borrowings are more than troubling and indicate that there are 523 banks in Europe in serious trouble.

Don't Be A Domesticated Extremist / Politics / US Politics

By: Jeff_Berwick

There are countless reasons why leaving the country that purports to own you has advantages. For one, whenever I return to my personal home country of Canada - never for pleasure, only for business - I will usually run across a typically socialist Canadian who will take great offence to my worldview and will tell me, "If you don't like it, leave!"

Nothing makes me happier than to tell them, "I did... and I'm so much happier now."

24 Signs That We Are Getting Dangerously Close to a Major War in the Middle East / Politics / Middle East

By: LewRockwell

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleEnd of the American Dream writes: Is 2012 the year when we will see a major war in the Middle East? For years we have heard about rising tensions in the Middle East, and for years we have heard politicians express concerns about Iran's nuclear program, but now things really do seem to be reaching a boiling point. In just the past few days, the U.S. government has imposed tough new sanctions on Iran and has totally shut down the U.S. embassy in Syria. The truth is that we are getting dangerously close to a major war in the Middle East. So will Israel strike Iran at some point in the next few months? Will the U.S. military intervene in the rapidly escalating conflict inside of Syria? If a major war does erupt, it could send the price of oil skyrocketing and there is the potential that the war could broaden very quickly. Hezbollah has already indicated that it will side with Syria, and there is always the potential that Hamas could as well. Russia and China have both stated that they are completely opposed to military action by the United States against Iran and Syria, and they have even hinted that they would possibly even help defend those countries. As the nations of the world take sides, there is even the potential that we could see World War III develop. Let us hope that it never comes to that, but with the world as unstable as it is right now, you never know what may happen.

Will U.S, NATO Atrack Iran? / Politics / US Politics

By: Paul_Craig_Roberts

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleWashington has made tremendous preparations for a military assault on Iran. There is speculation that Washington has called off its two longest running wars – Iraq and Afghanistan – in order to deploy forces against Iran. Two of Washington’s fleets have been assigned to the Persian Gulf along with NATO warships. Missiles have been spread amongst Washington’s Oil Emirate and Middle Eastern puppet states. US troops have been deployed in Israel and Kuwait.

Bring Down the New World Order with Free Market Education / Politics / Education

By: Gary_North

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleIn my report, "The Crucial Pillar of the New World Order," I argued that education is the key to the modern New World Order, or Superclass, as David Rothkopf calls it. The system of about 20 elite universities, plus a handful of exclusive four-year private colleges, is the crucial institutional means of screening entry into the inner ring of power.

I argued that a great shift has been in progress since 1960. The best universities began to screen by means of a specific kind of intellect, namely, the ability to take written examinations. I described this as the Prussian system. It is a system based on merit, but a peculiar form of merit: performance on exams. Writing well also counts. As these formal criteria have been made the barriers to entry, legacy sons from the Old World Order have not gained entry.

Banking, U.S. Housing Market and Mortgages / Politics / US Housing

By: BATR

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleThe primary players that caused the housing bubble are:

1) The banking institutions that bundled and sold very risky mortgages

2) The Wall Street firms that bought these instruments and hedged for a default hazard by booking speculative derivative insurance that could never pay off on massive defaults

3) Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac provided government backing, of last resort, on bad mortgages

Jim Grant and the GOP Joining Forces to Bring Back the Gold Standard / Politics / Gold and Silver 2012

By: Money_Morning

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleDavid Zeiler writes: With two GOP presidential candidates saying they'd add legendary Wall Street pundit Jim Grant to their administrations, bringing back the gold standard clearly has moved up on the Republican agenda.

Ron Paul, for whom returning to the gold standard has been a decades-long crusade, has said he would name Grant chairman of the U.S. Federal Reserve. In his case, that would be a compromise - Paul has often called for the Fed to be abolished altogether.

Financial Crisis American Gridlock, Why The “Left” And The “Right” Are Both Wrong / Politics / Credit Crisis 2012

By: John_Mauldin

Diamond Rated - Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleToday we dive into Part 2 of Woody Brock’s notes from his new book, American Gridlock ( www.amazon.com/gridlock). He looks at what we can do in the future to prevent another crisis like we had in 2008, why we need to change, how we bargain with China (will be very controversial, in China at least!), what capitalism really is, and then he addresses the thorny issue of what it means to distribute wealth fairly. What can be said to those concerned with the top 1% of the population owning a grossly disproportionate share of the nation’s wealth?

Washington Heading for War on Syria / Politics / Middle East

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleWashington's longstanding policy is regime change in Iran and Syria. At issue is replacing independent regimes with client ones and securing unchallenged control of valued Middle East resources.

On February 4, Russia and China vetoed a largely one-sided anti-Assad resolution. A previous article called him more victim than villain. Yet he's falsely blamed for months of externally generated violence.

Double Liability for Bank Shareholders, Officers and Directors / Politics / Credit Crisis 2012

By: Chris_Kitze

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleMost people don't realize that for about 75 years after Civil War, in the United States, a bank's officers, directors and shareholders had personal liability in excess of the value of their shares.  If a bank were to be declared insolvent by the regulator, they were required to make up the shortfall in an insolvency with their personal assets.  This tends to focus the attention of the bankers to be more responsible in terms of their lending and other business practices and provides an automatic way to self-regulate.  When you have no personal responsibility, other than maybe not getting a bonus next year, why not take big chance for a bigger personal payout?  There is no downside for bankers with today's limited liability and the public is now stuck with these losses because the bankers have shifted their responsibility to the public.
