Two Decades Of Debt Induced Greed Unraveling into the Greater Depression / Politics / US Debt

By: James_Quinn

Diamond Rated - Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleWe are currently in the midst of a Fourth Turning. This twenty year Crisis began during the 2005 - 2008 timeframe with the collapse of the housing bubble and subsequent repercussions on the worldwide financial system. It is progressing as expected, with the financial crisis deepening and leading to tensions across the world. It will eventually morph into military conflict, as all prior Fourth Turnings have. The progression from High to Awakening through the Unraveling took from 1946 until 2006. The most treacherous period of the Saeculm is upon us.

One Bank Ruled Them All, Trichet's ECB Powergrab  / Politics / Central Banks

By: Mike_Whitney

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleOn Thursday, European Central Bank head Jean-Claude Trichet announced that he would continue the ECB's low interest rates (1 percent) and easy lending policies for the foreseeable future. Wall Street rallied on the news sending shares skyrocketing 273 points on the day. Trichet also said that he would continue his controversial bond-purchasing program which has drawn fire from wary German leaders who fear the onset of inflation. The bank chief adroitly dodged questions on the program suggesting that he will operate secretively like the Fed, buying up downgraded assets and concealing their original owner. By appointing himself the de facto Fiscal Czar of the European Union, Trichet has stopped the fall of the euro, scattered the short-sellers, and zapped the markets upward. Not bad for a day's work.

British Government Defends BP / Politics / Environmental Issues

By: Michael_T_Bucci

Judging the British reaction to the Gulf crisis, the Conservatives have now redefined the stakes beyond those of BP market capitalization losses. As one wire-service headline framed it: "Britain sticks up for BP". Comments left at British sites show anti-Americanism new to an otherwise friendly and allied relationship. The British press has whipped America for Obama's clumsiness, bad language, poor diplomatic skills and histrionic threats; while the British nation seems perfectly groomed, if I am to believe the media, to identify themselves with BP, a private corporation.

Salute the flag and praise NBC (GE) for its latest effort to persuade the population to accept the kind of secret operations that now drive the war in Afghanistan.  Their latest show is called “Covert Affairs” and airs on the patriotically named USA Network.

BP Oil Disaster Could Hit Europe Via the Powerful Gulf Stream Current / Politics / Environmental Issues

By: F_William_Engdahl

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleThe Obama Administration and senior BP officials are frantically working not to stop the world’s worst oil disaster, but to hide the true extent of the actual ecological catastrophe. Senior researchers tell us that the BP drilling hit one of the oil migration channels and that the leakage could continue for years unless decisive steps are undertaken, something that seems far from the present strategy.

The Chinese Navy Faces a Critical Watershed as the East Asian Strategic Balance Changes / Politics / China

By: OilPrice_Com

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleNew strategic brinkmanship by the Democratic People’s Republic of Korea (DPRK); a now-clear determination by the People’s Republic of China (PRC) to “more aggressively assert its territorial claims in regional waters”; the near-collapse of Japanese strategic cohesion during 2010; and the increasing signs of US political caution in North-East Asia, all point to a period of strategic concern for the Republic of China, particularly in its maritime responsibilities.

Why Did The U.S. Refuse International Help on The Gulf Oil Spill? / Politics / Environmental Issues

By: Dian_L_Chu

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleDespite the vow by President Obama to keep the Gulf oil spill a top priority until the damage is cleaned up, 50 days after the BP rig exploded, a definitive date and meaningful solution is yet to be determined for the worst oil spill in the U.S. history.

So, you would think if someone is willing to handle the clean-up with equipment and technology not available in the U.S., and finishes the job in shorter time than the current estimate, the U.S. should jump on the offer.

Obama Powerless Against BP as Gulf Oil Spill Continues / Politics / Environmental Issues

By: Shamus_Cooke

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleAfter BP successfully placed a cap to divert some of the spewing oil into tankers, thousands of gallons continue to flow daily into the gulf. August is slated as the earliest date that any permanent solution may emerge. BP remains totally in charge of potentially the largest environmental disaster in the earth’s recorded history, a fact that proves — in “check mate” fashion — that corporations dominate the inner workings of the U.S. government, a truth previously revealed by the bank bailouts.

Why Governments Hate Gold / Politics / Gold and Silver 2010

By: Dr_Ron_Paul

This past week several emerging and ongoing crises took attention away from the ongoing sovereign debt problems in Greece. The bailouts are merely kicking the can down the road and making things worse for taxpaying citizens, here and abroad. Greece is unfortunately not unique in its irresponsible spending habits. Greek-style debt explosions are quickly spreading to other nations one by one, and yes, the United States is one of the dominoes on down the line.
