The Sexual Underground World of Bankers / Politics / US Politics

By: Danny_Schechter

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleMy colleague Mike Whitney asks: “So, what are the chances that Strauss-Kahn will get a fair trial now that he's been blasted as a serial sex offender in about 3,000 articles and in all the televised news reports?

Do you remember any Wall Street bankers being dragged off in handcuffs when they blew up the financial system and bilked people out of trillions of dollars?"

Dominique Strauss-Kahn Was Tying to Torpedo the Dollar / Politics / Global Financial System

By: Mike_Whitney

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleIt's all about perception management. The media is trying to dig up as much dirt as they can on Dominique Strauss-Kahn so they can hang the man before he ever sees the inside of a courthouse. It reminds me of the Terry Schiavo case, where devoted-husband Michael was pegged as an insensitive slimeball for carrying out the explicit wishes of his brain-dead wife. Do you remember how the media conducted their disgraceful 24 hour-a-day Blitzkrieg with the endless coverage of weepy Christian fanatics on the front lawn of the hospital while Hannity, Limbaugh and O' Reilly fired away with their sanctimonious claptrap?

The Coming IMF Crisis / Politics / Global Financial System

By: Andrew_McKillop

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleAFTER STRAUSS-KAHN - Countries pushing for a quick resignation of disgraced IMF chief Strauss-Kahn, and others arguing a slower approach underline by coded messages who stands to gain or lose when a new IMF chief is named by a weighted majority vote at the IMF's 24-person executive board. But whoever wins, we all lose when the IMF-run gold laundering and illicit or 'gray' capital recycling operations get known.

No Nation, No Border, Fight Law and Order / Politics / US Politics

By: Richard_Hartley

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleEveryday on the way into the office I walk past a particular piece of Graffiti. It's been there for a number of years. Whilst most graffiti gets painted out or cleaned off quite promptly this wall remains. I now get the feeling that the building owner must in fact be the graffiti artist or have an empathy with the message it tries to portray. The words though seem in a time-warp with reality. I imagine that perversely this was sprayed on the wall by a visiting unelected 55 year old diplomat from Brussels as one of the European Union’s slogans.

Federal Reserve Elitism, Immunity And Outstaying One’s Welcome / Politics / Central Banks

By: Rob_Kirby

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleWhen The Bank of International Settlements was formed back in 1930, two board seats were allocated to the U.S. Federal Reserve but for many years [decades actually] the Fed did not name anyone to these positions.  As reported by Reg Howe at the Golden Sextant years ago, The Federal Reserve finally took up their seats as directors of the BIS back in 1994.  Howe never did articulate the importance or assign a reason as to why the Fed took their seats on the BIS at that time, but he did question the timing:

Strauss-Kahn, Eliot Spitzer and 'soft assassinations' / Politics / US Politics

By: Michael_T_Bucci

It appears that IMF chief Mr. Dominique Strauss-Kahn chose the least safe location - New York - to carry-out an alleged "criminal sexual act, attempted rape, and unlawful imprisonment" of a 32-year-old hotel maid, if that allegation is proved in court. He will plead not guilty, said his attorney Benjamin Brafman. In essence, Strauss-Kahn might just have received the "Eliot Spitzer boot" masterminded and directed by the same Wall Street gang that engineered the past meltdown, the ongoing deep recession and the U.S. Government's austerity programs, which international wealth continues to exploit for optimal profits.

Is Insider Trading Really a Crime? / Politics / Market Manipulation

By: Robert_Murphy

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleA major piece of financial news last week was billionaire Raj Rajaratnam's conviction on 14 counts of securities fraud and conspiracy. Rajaratnam, founder of the hedge fund Galleon Group, was worth an estimated $1.8 billion in 2009. His conviction has pleased those who want the feds to crack down on "insider trading" and show the fat cats on Wall Street that they aren't above the rules.

IMF Chief Strauss-Kahn Caught in "Honey Trap" / Politics / US Politics

By: Mike_Whitney

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleI have no way of knowing whether the 32-year-old maid who claims she was attacked and forced to perform oral sex on IMF chief Dominique Strauss-Kahn, is telling the truth or not. I'll leave that to the braying hounds in the media who have already assumed the role of judge, jury and Lord High Executioner. But I will say, the whole matter smells rather fishy, just like the Eliot Spitzer story smelled fishy. Spitzer, you may recall, was Wall Street's biggest adversary and a likely candidate to head the SEC, a position at which he would have excelled. In fact, there's no doubt in my mind that if Spitzer had been appointed to lead the SEC, most of the top investment bankers on Wall Street would presently be making license plates and rope-soled shoes at the federal penitentiary.

Strauss-Kahn, IMF Scam Fails, the Debt Crisis Crescendo / Politics / Global Debt Crisis

By: Andrew_McKillop

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleWhen Dominique Strauss-Kahn, then director of the IMF, fled his Manhattan hotel room in a vain attempt to take an Air France plane to Europe, Roman Polanski style, he inexplicably left his cellphone in the room where he had alledley attempted to rape a hotel maid. The cellphone was of course loaded with a list of very interesting names and numbers, pored over by New York police and Federal US officials.

Creating the Bin Laden "Reality" / Politics / US Politics

By: Paul_Craig_Roberts

I have heard one dozen times today (May 13) from media that the US killed Osama Bin Laden in Pakistan. I heard it three times from National Public Radio, twice from the BBC, and from every TV and radio station I encountered, even those stations that play the rock and roll music of the 1950s and 1960s. The killing of bin Laden has now entered the legends of our time and, no doubt, the history books.

G.O.P.'s Prepares to Declare Permanent War / Politics / US Politics

By: Mike_Whitney

House Armed Services Committee Chairman Buck McKeon (R-CA) is pushing a bill through congress that will repeal due process and give the President nearly-unlimited powers to wage war wherever and whenever he chooses without congressional approval. Because the language in the so-called Detainee Security Act of 2011 is (intentionally?) vague, it's impossible to know at whom it is directed. Is the real focus on suspects captured by the military in the so-called War on Terror or civilians who oppose US foreign policy? It's hard to say. Here's an excerpt from an article in Talking Points Memo that mulls over that same question:

Bernanke Double Talk Creates Opportunity / Politics / Central Banks

By: John_Browne

When Fed Chairmen speak, the public is supposed to listen; and, historically, they have. Yet, Chairman Bernanke's remarks at his historic first press conference were met by a tidal wave of skepticism. Although many of the mainstream outlets, especially those lucky enough to be granted question slots, characterized his performance as "serious" and "masterful," most rank-and-file Americans were left with a very different impression.

New forecasts show a very predominate cloud of radiation that seems to blanket most of the United states in the next few days. Looking at the map you can see that the brunt of this cloud will hit the Western United States as well as Canada very hard. With steady winds flowing from japan and heading east ,we will continue to see this happen. As mentioned in other articles, food supplies have already seen reports of low levels of Radiation being tested, and with these new massive fallout clouds heading east I’m sure these levels will increase.
