Middle East Peace Talks Another Fraud / Politics / Middle East

By: LewRockwell

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleEric Margolis writes: On 2 Sept, 2001, in a newspaper article, I wrote: "America’s strategic and economic interests in the Mideast and Muslim world are being threatened by the agony in Palestine, which inevitably invites terrorist attacks against US citizens and property."

The 9/11 attacks came nine days later.

Bankster's Cheer When Fraud Charges Are Dropped Again / Politics / Credit Crisis 2010

By: Danny_Schechter

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleBen Affleck’s next movie, the Town, is set in Charlestown Mass, known for the battle of Bunker Hill and dubbed in the past by tabloid TV as “hell’s half acre” for all the crimes that take place there. The film, a cops and robbers tale, focuses on a gang that robs banks with extreme violence. Its ads refer to Charlestown as national capitol of bank robberies.

Labour Day 2010, Economic Austerity, Public Services and the Labour Movement / Politics / Social Issues

By: Global_Research

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleGreg Albo and Bryan Evans write: This Labour Day, like the last two, is dominated by the ongoing global economic crisis. Since 2008 Canada's workers, working families, and the communities in which we make our lives, have endured a period of deep economic insecurity the likes of which we have not seen since the Great Depression. The crisis began in the financial sector, amongst bankers, brokers, lawyers, and financial engineers of all sorts when the credit bubbles supporting the casino economy of derivatives, collateralized debt obligations, credit default swaps and other financial instruments began to deflate.

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.

Middle East Conflict Costs Region $12 Trillion Over 20 Years / Politics / Middle East

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

By: Global_Research

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.
