BP Oil Spill Global Catastrophe Reaches Epic Proportions / Politics / Environmental Issues

By: T_Anthony_Michael

Diamond Rated - Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleDr. Tom Termotto writes: As BP Oil Spill Lets the Genie Out Of The Bottle

Why has it been so difficult to put this GENIE (Oil & Gas) back into the bottle (Macondo Prospect, Gulf of Mexico)? Or at least keep any more of him from coming out?

There are many reasons, on many different levels, but let’s start with BP and the culture of corporate superiority that has evolved at this corporate behemoth since its founding in 1908. We’re talking about the granddaddy here – the Anglo-Persian Oil Company – which was the first to develop the oil and gas reserves discovered in the Middle East. Simply put, when you’re the biggest and the oldest in that neck of the woods, you get used to doing it your way, and ONLY your way.

Fourth of July, Put Away the Flags / Politics / US Politics

By: Global_Research

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleRemembering Howard Zinn - On this July 4, we would do well to renounce nationalism and all its symbols: its flags, its pledges of allegiance, its anthems, its insistence in song that God must single out America to be blessed.

Is not nationalism -- that devotion to a flag, an anthem, a boundary so fierce it engenders mass murder -- one of the great evils of our time, along with racism, along with religious hatred?

Seize BP Assets: Compounding One Disaster with Another / Politics / US Politics

By: MISES

Diamond Rated - Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleCarl F. Horowitz writes: The April 20 explosion and subsequent round-the-clock oil spill from a BP-operated deepwater drilling rig in the Gulf of Mexico 40 miles off the Louisiana coast has generated justifiable anger across the nation. It's also generated calls for strict sanctions against BP, the most drastic of which is confiscation of all company assets.

Should We Nuke the BP Gulf Oil Well? / Politics / Environmental Issues

By: Washingtons_Blog

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleCBS News, the Christian Science Monitor, CNN and Reuters have all asked whether BP should nuke its leaking oil well.

Indeed, some high-level Russian nuclear scientists and oil industry experts have suggested such that approach to stop the Gulf oil gusher. Here is archival footage of the Russians killing a gas leak with a nuclear device.

To the acute observer, something besides crude oil may be seen rising to the surface. It’s a message. A message revealing a deeper truth as to the real meaning of this crisis.

Chinese Yaun Manipulation, Currency Reform Bill Is Only a Small First Step / Politics / Market Regulation

By: Ian_Fletcher

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleIt’s nice to see the long-stewing Chinese currency manipulation pot bubbling a bit again, thanks to China’s latest blatantly disingenuous move to allow a token fluctuation or two of the yuan.  And it’s great that Sen. Debbie Stabenow’s currency bill is inching towards the floor of the Senate. (The underlying idea, giving American industries formal trade remedies against currency manipulation by foreign governments, was actually thought up several years ago by  Kevin Kearns, president of my organization, the U.S. Business & Industry Council.)

BP Gulf Oil Spill Disaster, An Impossible Well to Cap? / Politics / Environmental Issues

By: Joshua_S_Burnett

Diamond Rated - Best Financial Markets Analysis Article              My first article in this series was a query; I listed the theories and evidence I’d seen thus far and asked for readers to respond and tell me I was crazy (which a few of you did, in as many words…much appreciated J). I felt that what I was writing about seemed to me far “too apocalyptic” as one comment on the original article stated.  If you read the introduction and conclusion of the first article it becomes rather obvious that I wasn’t advocating, I was inquiring.  I received over 100 emails; after investigating those leads here are what I’ve concluded thus far.

G20 Economic Stimulus Stalemate in Toronto / Politics / Global Economy

By: John_Browne

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleLast week, global attention was focused on Toronto as the G-20 gathered to confront the growing financial and economic worries darkening the global economic horizon. In an irony worthy of Orwell, the representatives of the world's top 20 economies (19 countries plus the European Union) managed to ignore the out-of-control spending contained in Western governments' budgets and instead unite behind a banner that they called "financial responsibility." This is akin to a group of Mafiosi holding a summit on business ethics.

Sheffield NHS Choose Your GP Consultation as Health Life Expectancy Gap Widens / Politics / NHS

By: N_Walayat

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleThe 13 year Labour government has come and gone and still PCT's such as the Sheffield NHS are sat twiddling their thumbs with yet another patient consultation rather than acting to allow patients to be able to choose to register with any GP, as patients remain locked into their local GP surgeries regardless of the huge disparity in actual health care provision as experienced by patients and as demonstrated by the UK GP Patient survey ( http://results.gp-patient.co.uk- table below).

Deficit Terrorism and Economic Warfare as Main Street Slips Into Debt Slavery / Politics / US Debt

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleWall Street banks have been saved from bankruptcy by governments that are now going bankrupt themselves; but the banks are not returning the favor.  Instead, they are engaged in a class war, insisting that the squeezed middle class be even further squeezed to balance over-stressed government budgets.  All the perks are going to Wall Street, while Main Street slips into debt slavery.  Wall Street needs to be made to pay its fair share, but how?

Bill Quigley and Alex Tuscano writes: When President Barak Obama went after BP and demanded a $20 billion dollar fund be set up for victims of the Gulf oil spill, the people of India were furious. They saw a US double standard. The US demonstrated it values human life within the US more than the lives of the people of India.

G20, Colossus and The Forbin Project / Politics / US Politics

By: Michael_S_Rozeff

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleThe G20 Toronto Summit declaration reminds me of nothing so much as a science-fiction movie made in 1970 called Colossus: The Forbin Project.

The United States builds an impregnable computer system to control its nuclear weapons. As soon as it is activated, it senses a similar Russian system and demands a link – or else it will detonate a nuclear warhead. Once it gains this link, the two computers exchange information. The combination takes over control. It cannot be disconnected without unleashing nuclear catastrophe.

Eight of the individuals were also accused of money laundering.

BP and the "End Times"? / Politics / Environmental Issues

By: Kevin_Geary

I am not much into "the End Times" prediction, as so many have been predicted in the past and obviously have failed to materialise, but the BP Oil catastrophe in the Gulf has given me some pause to think about some well-known world predictions of the end of times, all of which have proven remarkably enduring.
