The Average Decrease Of Global Warming / Politics / Climate Change

By: Andrew_McKillop

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleDespite record high summer temperatures in several northern hemisphere countries, and the hottest September for over 70 years in some, political and mainstream media defenders of the one and only correct theory - Global Warming - have been slow off the mark. As yet, the "Told you so" reports and statements are low on the ground. Is Global Warming going down the tube, where it belongs ?

The Iran Saudi Diplomat Assassination Attempt Hoax? / Politics / US Politics

By: Submissions

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleI have been staring incredulously at my TV screen these past few hours as the story of Iran’s alleged assassination attempt of a Saudi diplomat in Washington unfolds in dramatic increments.

Reporters keep repeating the theme “like out of a Hollywood script” as they eke out increasingly unlikely details about this “terror” plot.

Electric Cars: Why Did They Fail ? / Politics / Technology

By: Andrew_McKillop

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleAnybody who says "They havent yet failed - because they havent yet started" only has to check out the short and born-to-fail history of Hydrogen Cars, circa 1998-2005. During that opportunity window for a wonderful new car which would save oil and could save the planet, only badly intentioned and cynical members of the human race could say out loud that Hydrogen Cars were born to fail. Other people, being politically correct or only stupid, said H2 Cars were born to win. But from about 2003 or a bit later the news was out: it was OK and alright to say Hydrogen Cars won't work. Not only high priced, energy inefficient and overweight, but also downright and extremely dangerous - literal bombs-onwheels made for the Bearded One in a Cave who now reposes at the bottom of the Iranian Gulf, off Oman, by decision of Mr. Obama - who of course loves EVs.

The Seven Biggest Economic Lies / Politics / US Politics

By: Global_Research

The president's jobs bill doesn't have a chance in Congress - and the occupiers on Wall Street and elsewhere can't become a national movement for a more equitable society - unless more Americans know the truth about the economy.

Here's a short (2 minute 30 second) effort to rebut the seven biggest whoppers now being told by those who want to take America backwards. The major points:

The Transformation of the US into a Police State / Politics / US Politics

By: Paul_Craig_Roberts

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticlePat Buchanan’s latest book, Suicide of a Superpower, raises the question whether America will survive to 2025. The question might strike some readers as unduly pessimistic and others as optimistic. It is unclear whether the US, as we have known it, will survive its next presidential election.

Mitt Romney's Plan to Replace Free Trade / Politics / Protectionism

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleAs I've noted before, Mitt Romney has given some indications that he may be serious about doing something about America's trade mess. He's made tough statements about dealing with China which, if sincere, would not only put him beyond the other major Republican candidates on trade, but also far beyond what the Obama administration is doing.

Loss of National Identity / Politics / US Politics

By: Andy_Sutton

Best Financial Markets Analysis Article“Good Housekeeping? – An Op-Ed” - I am writing this article not as an economic or financial analyst, which is my normal mode of operation. This article has nothing to do with economic, financial markets, or any related topics. What it has to do with is the undeniable reality that we as a nation are failing miserably in one of the most basic precepts of civilization and that is to leave things better than we found them. When you think about it that is how true advancement takes place.

The Discipline of Government / Politics / US Politics

By: Richard_Mills

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleIn my article The Politics of Personal Destruction I presented the case that the Federal Reserve was responsible for the Great Depression because of its extremely tight monetary policy.

In 1963 Friedman, and coauthor Anna J. Schwartz, published A Monetary History of the United States, 1867-1960. In it, the authors claimed that the Great Depression would have been a typical downturn had it not been for policy errors made by the Federal Reserve. US Federal Reserve head Ben Bernanke also believes if the Fed had provided enough money to banks and bought US securities the Great Depression would not of happened.

OCCUPY WALL STREET: Separating Fact from Media / Politics / US Politics

By: Walter_Brasch

Newspaper columnist Ann Coulter, spreading the lies of the extreme right wing, called the Occupy Wall Street protestors, “tattooed, body-pierced, sunken-chested 19-year-olds getting in fights with the police for fun.” She claimed the protestors, now in the thousands in New York, are “directionless losers [who] pose for cameras while uttering random liberal clichés lacking any reason or coherence.” (Several hundred thousand of these “directionless losers” are expected to attend rallies in more than 650 cities, Oct. 15.)

The Jobless, the Homeless, the Shiftless, Vive La Revolution! / Politics / US Politics

By: Bill_Bonner

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleThe Occupy Wall Street movement is getting a fair amount of press. The movement, as you know, dear reader, is a loose assembly of the jobless, the homeless and the shiftless. Troublemakers, every one of them, with no coherent or sensible view of what is wrong or how to fix it. But what’s wrong with that?

Forcing Investment Advisors to “Identify” Suspected Terrorists  / Politics / Canada

By: Rob_Kirby

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleAre Animal Rights Activists Terrorists?

Something which has created a stir in the alternative media [the derelict mainstream have long ceased reporting the news] in the past couple of days is a report concerning new steps being required of investment advisors in Canada relating to their KYC [Know Your Client] procedures.  This was first brought to my attention by Jeff Berwick [The Dollar Vigilante] and I’d advise everyone to read his piece on this here.  These new steps involve / require investment advisors to complete a questionnaire – prepared by a national regulatory body called FINTRAC – to help investment advisors “identify” suspected terrorists.

The European Crash Dummies Will Hit the Greek Brick Wall / Politics / Global Debt Crisis

By: Gary_North

Diamond Rated - Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleA crash dummy has some of the physical characteristics of a human being. It is used to test the safety of the interior of a car that has suffered a major accident. A pair of dummies are strapped into the front seat of a car that is on a track. Then the car is run into a wall at high speed. The engineers then examine what happened to the dummies. If the dummies had been human beings, would they have been killed? Dismembered?

Putin's New Vision of 'Eurasia' / Politics / Russia

By: OilPrice_Com

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleMany western politicians have harbored deep suspicions of Russian Prime Minister Vladimir Vladimorovich Putin since he first emerged on the Russian political stage in 1999.

This is hardly surprising, given his KGB background, though those with longer historical memories will recall that Yuri Andropov came from the same organization and that the West grudgingly found a way to work with him.

Ron Paul on U.S. State Assassinating American Citizens Sets Dangerous Precedent / Politics / US Politics

By: Dr_Ron_Paul

According to the Fifth Amendment of the US Constitution, Americans are never to be deprived of life, liberty, or property without due process of law. The Constitution is not some aspirational statement of values, allowing exceptions when convenient, but rather, it is the law of the land. It is the basis of our Republic and our principal bulwark against tyranny.

The US Empire: A Tragic Comedy in Three Acts / Politics / US Politics

What a delight it is to have an empire!

Do the Swiss get to send out drones to kill people they don’t know in countries they’ve never been? No! The poor yodelers go around with long faces and visit their shrinks. Americans have troops in 170 countries. Where are the Swiss? Only in Switzerland and the Vatican. Alas, they will never know the joys of nation building and people murdering.

China Currency Bill: Politics vs. Economics, Is the U.S. ready for a global trade war? / Politics / US Politics

By: EconMatters

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleThe latest move on China politics at Washington is the China currency bill, due at the U.S. Senate on Tuesday, Oct. 12.  The proposal would levy tariffs on China and four other Asian countries for artificially depressing the value of their currencies to boost their exports.

To us, it seems evident that those in Washington have not thought this through completely (or chose to ignore).  Here is how the math would work.
