By: Mike_Whitney

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleThe Obama administration is moving closer to a war with North Korea. Propaganda fliers have been spread across the Demilitarized Zone (DMZ), some of them reaching as far north as Pyongyang. According to the Korea JoongAng Daily an official from the South Korean Ministry of National Defense said "the South is prepared to broadcast propaganda along the DMZ and that the ministry is “weighing the timing.”...Loudspeakers are already installed in 11 areas along the DMZ for further propaganda attacks." ("Propaganda war escalates; use of loudspeakers mulled", Korea JoongAng Daily)

Bernanke Caught Out in Massive Lie on Money Printing / Politics / Central Banks

By: Mike_Shedlock

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleLeave it to the Daily Show to express in a humorous way the blatant lies of Fed Chairman Ben Bernanke about "Printing Money". The amazing thing is Bernanke exposed himself, in his own words.

The clip notes an interesting discrepancy with what Ben Bernanke told 60 Minutes in his first infomercial on 60 Minutes in March of 2009 and what he said Sunday December 5, 2010.

Bernanke Lied His Way Through a '60 Minutes' Infomercial, He Misinforms with Gusto! / Politics / Central Banks

By: Gary_North

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleBen Bernanke ought to write country music songs on the side. They would all have the same theme: I cheated on you honey, but take me back one more time.

His appearance on "60 Minutes" on Sunday, December 5, was clearly his attempt to deal with criticism of the Federal Reserve's policy of purchasing up to $600 billion of Treasury debt – or more, as he admitted.

WikiLeaks - State Secrets or Clever Propaganda Tactics? / Politics / US Politics

By: OilPrice_Com

Is the US Government Machiavellian enough to orchestrate the recent brouhaha over the so-called website WikiLeaks, is this a real embarrassment, or will it indeed be damaging as some U.S. diplomats claim?

I am not one to support conspiracy theories but when you stop to analyze the content of the information that was leaked it seem that two things emerge: first, the content of the cables were not so earth shattering as to damage national security, or harm Washington's relations with other countries.

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleThis past Sunday on the CBS program "60 Minutes", Americans received a massive dose of mendacity from our Fed Chairman. Mr. Bernanke's shaky delivery, and even shakier logic may cause faith in America's economic leadership to evaporate faster than the value of our dollar.

Obama Announces Deal to Extend Tax Cuts for the Rich / Politics / US Politics

By: Barry_Grey

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticlePresident Obama on Monday announced his support for a two-year extension of Bush-era tax cuts for the rich, capitulating to Republican demands and reversing campaign pledges to end the windfall for families making more than $250,000 a year.

The announcement was made in a brief White House speech, after which Obama took no questions from the press. Extension of the tax cuts for the wealthy, set to expire January 1, has been a central preoccupation of the US corporate-financial elite. For precisely that reason, the cave-in by Obama and the Democratic Party on the issue was virtually assured. The extension will funnel an estimated $70 billion per year into the coffers of the rich.

BernankeLeaks, Fed and Wall Street Banks $12.3 Trillion Biggest Scam in World History / Politics / Credit Crisis Bailouts

By: David_DeGraw

Diamond Rated - Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleWhat if the greatest scam ever perpetrated was blatantly exposed, and the US media didn’t cover it? Does that mean the scam could keep going? That’s what we are about to find out.

I understand the importance of the new WikiLeaks documents. However, we must not let them distract us from the new information the Federal Reserve was forced to release. Even if WikiLeaks reveals documents from inside a large American bank, as huge as that could be, it will most likely pale in comparison to what we just found out from the one-time peek we got into the inner-workings of the Federal Reserve. This is the Wall Street equivalent of the Pentagon Papers.

Wikileaks and the Worldwide Information and Propaganda War / Politics / US Politics

By: Andrew_G_Marshall

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleThe recent release of the 250,000 Wikileaks documents has provoked unparalleled global interest, both positive, negative, and everywhere in between. One thing that can be said with certainty: Wikileaks is changing things.

There are those who accept what the Wikileaks releases say at face value, largely due to the misrepresentation of the documents by the corporate-controlled news.
