Mainstream Media Depression and Deflation Propaganda / Politics / Mainstream Media

By: Howard_Katz

Cause and Effect - Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleFanaticism has been defined as the policy of repeating the same actions while expecting a different result.  If that is the case, then we live in a society of fanatics, and it is absolutely essential to know this if one is to succeed in the financial markets.

In mid-September 2008, the New York Times began to scream, in a series of big headlines, that the nation was in a financial crisis.  I have studied the American media, and it is absolutely amazing.  The overwhelming majority of newspapers will pick up a line of propaganda from the Times and repeat it mindlessly ad infinitum.  After 2 weeks of Times propaganda the nation’s media had fallen in line, and in 10 days in early October the DJI fell by 3000 points (as the public read a large number of bearish articles about the financial system).

The NGO Invastion and Occupation of Afghanistan / Politics / Afghanistan

By: Global_Research

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleYves Engler writes: They’re called NGOs — non-governmental organizations — but the description is misleading at best, or an outright lie generated by intelligence agencies at worst.

In fact, almost all development NGOs receive a great deal of their funding from government and in return follow government policies and priorities. While this was always true, it has become easier to see with Stephen Harper’s Conservative Canadian government, which lacks the cleverness and subtlety of the Liberal Party who at least funded some “oppositional” activity to allow NGOs a veneer of independence.

A Little Rice Wine Spat: Taiwan vs. U.S. and EU / Politics / Global Economy

By: Static_Chaos

Taiwan, (aka The Republic of China, ROC), the tiny island just across the Strait from China-- found itself taking considerable heat from the United States and European Union (EU)—two biggest exporters of alcoholic beverages to the Taiwanese market--over a planned tax cut on its locally brewed rice wine.

By: Rick_Rozoff

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleThe Internet has provided the world with, if nothing else, instantaneous access to news and in-depth information previously available only to governments and think tanks. It has also allowed for the exchange of data and analyses between groups and individuals around the globe, in part by making one tongue, English, the language of the World Wide Web. It remains to be seen whether the keystroke is mightier than the sword.

Reconstructing The IPCC / Politics / Climate Change

By: Andrew_McKillop

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticlePropagandist Reconstruction, or PR of news, science data, other persons' views and different opinions is a long-term stalwart in modern society. From organizing public support for wars, even when the public itself may be attacked or be subject to economic loss, to ensuring that political leaders are re-elected, or that women start smoking and the public keeps buying the consumer products which generate the highest profits, the role of "communication" is primordial. What is called Public Relations is also and most basically propaganda.

U.S. Delusional Democracy Favors Corporate, Wealthy and Elitist Interests Over Those of Ordinary Americans / Politics / US Politics

By: Joel_S_Hirschhorn

For years I muttered mentally to myself about the insanity of Americans electing George W. Bush president.  Now I go through the same agony about the craziness of the nation electing Barack Obama president.  As much as I thought Bush was a manipulated second-rate politician that carried out the terribly destructive policies pushed by Cheney and other conservative corporate shills, now I feel equally angry that so many voters fell for the slick rhetoric and lies of Obama.  Disgust produces public thirst for change and Obama was wickedly brilliant at selling change.  When voters are so easily victimized what does democracy amount to?

Rip-Off By The Federal Reserve / Politics / US Politics

By: Submissions

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleLiberty writes: The Federal Reserve uses euphemistic smoke and mirrors to obscure their operations. With full knowledge the following is not the way the Fed/government describes the system, allow me to offer a different analysis of their mathematical operation.

Congress can pay for federal expenses with funds collected from taxes, but Congress is never satisfied with this amount. The desire to buy votes/campaign contributions from special interest groups induces congress-critters to spend more, and this is identified as deficit spending. To create this make-believe money requires the assistance of the Federal Reserve.

Putting an End to Democrats, Liberals, & Progressives...once and for all!!! / Politics / US Politics

By: Michael_T_Bucci

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleRobert Murchen spoke. "I don't speak about Democrats of your country because it is a waste of my time. I don't listen to them any more I do socialist and union leaders in the EU. I will plan for the day they are considered illegal aliens. They live in a fantasy world and are the single greatest obstacle to progress and wealth building." Going further, he believes that the future of America has been decided; it will be "absent the burden of the imbecilic conscience interfering with matters strictly of business."

For Labor Day Weekend, When Unemployment Happens To You / Politics / US Politics

By: Danny_Schechter

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleWhen your life and your work is as entwined as mine has been—fusing the personal and the political over all these years, it may be stretching things to consider yourself unemployed but that’s what I am as Labor Day approaches.

Most of the media focuses on the big companies that have slashed their work forces (even as they hoard cash.) But small companies are also suffering, cutting back, and closing. They don’t get the subsidies or bailouts or the attention.

Militancy and the U.S. Drawdown in Afghanistan / Politics / Afghanistan

By: STRATFOR

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleThe drawdown of U.S. forces in Iraq has served to shift attention toward Afghanistan, where the United States has been increasing its troop strength in hopes of forming conditions conducive to a political settlement. This is similar to the way it used the 2007 surge in Iraq to help reach a negotiated settlement with the Sunni insurgents that eventually set the stage for withdrawal there. As we’ve discussed elsewhere, the Taliban at this point do not feel the pressure required for them to capitulate or negotiate and therefore continue to follow their strategy of surviving and waiting for the coalition forces to depart so that they can again make a move to assume control over Afghanistan.

Obama’s Iraq Speech An Exercise in Cowardice and Deceit / Politics / US Politics

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleBill Van Auken writes: President Barack Obama’s nationally televised speech from the White House Oval Office Tuesday night was an exercise in cowardice and deceit. It was deceitful to the people of the United States and the entire world in its characterization of the criminal war against Iraq. And it was cowardly in its groveling before the American military.

The illusion created by loose credit — that housing could go up in price forever and we could enjoy permanent prosperity due to monetary expansion — was shattered by events. Reality had dawned. We found ourselves in the midst of an economic depression.

And we see that in some strange way, the events are not unrelated. Not causally, mind you, but philosophically.

Bernanke Out of Bullets, But Not Bombs / Politics / Central Banks

By: Michael_Pento

Word on the street is that the Fed is now "out of bullets." Many economists fear that in its efforts to spur recovery, the Fed may have already exhausted its array of monetary ammunition and that it has nothing left of significance to fire at the steadily advancing recession. They believe that since interest rates are already near zero and Fed policies have failed to inspire banks to expand commercial and consumer lending (despite ample bank reserves), the tools traditionally employed by the Fed have been rendered impotent.

The Fourth Turning – Economic and Social Skies Over the United States Darkening / Politics / US Politics

By: James_Quinn

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleWilliam Strauss and Neil Howe published The Fourth Turning in 1997. This was before the internet bubble, before the housing bubble, before 9/11, before the two wars in the Middle East, and before the financial collapse of 2008. They made a strong case for their generational theory of history. Everything that has happened since 1997 supports their theory. We are currently in the early stages of the Fourth Turning.
