Something Stinks About Wikileaks Release of "Secret" Documents / Politics / Conspiracy Theory

By: F_William_Engdahl

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleSince the dramatic release of a US military film of a US airborne shooting of unarmed journalists in Iraq, Wiki-Leaks has gained global notoreity and credibility as a daring website that releases sensitive material to the public from whistleblowers within various governments. Their latest “coup” involved alleged leak of thousands of pages of supposedly sensitive documents regarding US informers within the Taliban in Afghanistan and their ties to senior people linked to Pakistan’s ISI military intelligence. The evidence suggests however that far from an honest leak, it is a calculated disinformation to the gain of the US and perhaps Israeli and Indian intelligence and a coverup of the US and Western role in drug trafficking out of Afghanistan.

Hurrah for Hugo Chavez / Politics / US Politics

By: Mike_Whitney

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleIt's no fun being on Washington's enemies list. Just ask Hugo Chavez. Last week, the Venezuelan president had to cancel a trip to Cuba after he was told that a coup was underway and his life was in danger. The information came from an anonymous source who had delivered a similar warning prior to the failed coup in 2002. The letter said: “The execution phase is accelerating..… There is an agreement between Colombia and the US with two objectives: one is Mauricio and the other is the overthrow of the government.… They will hunt down ‘Mauricio’ (and) try to neutralize part of the Armed Forces.” ("Venezuela Pushes for Peace", Coral Wynter, Green Left News)

U.S. and the Cycle of Violence in Afghanistan / Politics / US Politics

By: Dr_Ron_Paul

Last week the National Bureau of Economic Research published a report on the effect of civilian casualties in Afghanistan and Iraq that confirmed what critics of our foreign policy have been saying for years: the killing of civilians, although unintentional, angers other civilians and prompts them to seek revenge. This should be self-evident.

Are Democrats Plotting Surprise Election Economic Stimulus? / Politics / Economic Stimulus

By: Money_Morning

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleJon D. Markman writes: Data last week showed a job market that’s careening down a steep street with no breaks. Yet investors were able to shrug off employment concerns, as the stock market actually ended the week up 1.5% due to that rockin’ Monday on the first day of the month.

That’s because there is growing speculation that the Democrats are plotting a surprise stimulus in the run up to November’s mid-term elections.

Targeting Iran, US Administration Planning a Nuclear Attack? / Politics / GeoPolitics

By: Michel_Chossudovsky

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleThe US and its allies are preparing to launch a nuclear war directed against Iran with devastating consequences. This military adventure in the real sense of the word threatens the future of humanity.

While one can conceptualize the loss of life and destruction resulting from present-day wars including Iraq and Afghanistan, it is impossible to fully comprehend the devastation which might result  from a  Third World War, using "new technologies" and advanced weapons, until it occurs and becomes a reality.

War Against Iran as a Method of Promoting Globalisation / Politics / GeoPolitics

By: Global_Research

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleDmitry Sedov writes: There is little doubt that the US will hit Iran after pulling its troops out of Iraq. Military spending in the US has gained too much momentum to leave any hope that the current dynamics will change in the foreseeable future. The US military-industrial complex and its Pentagon partners have long been preparing the war-against-Iran project, readily resorting to the most unsavory methods in the process.

And now, “distinguished” economist Christina Romer, the only woman in that inner circle boys club has quit too. (Would you want to be around Larry Summers all day long?)

America's Middle Class in Crisis / Politics / US Politics

By: PhilStockWorld

Diamond Rated - Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleVery nice reading in the Financial Times this week.
One of my favorite topics since I themed the year with our 2010 Outlook "A Tale of Two Economies" and in the years before that I’ve been bitching about the topic of wealth disparity in America to the point where even arch-Conservatives Alan Greenspan and David Stockman are now forced to agree with me.  So that’s two down, 99,999,998 to go!  That’s right, just 1/3 of our fellow countrymen now identify themselves as Republicans or Republican’ts, as they are affectionately known on Capitol Hill - where they block every possible effort to change the status quo that’s been eating away at our nation and destroying the middle class for an entire decade now.

No Drama Obama Needs a Strong Second Act / Politics / US Politics

By: Walter_Brasch

The Obama administration is a welcome change from the Bush–Cheney years. Against severe Republican opposition, President Obama has kept campaign promises to reform health care, curb Wall Street excesses, create a federally-funded stimulus program to help bring the nation out of the recession, and to remove American troops from the needless Iraq war, which has already cost Americans more than $740 billion and 4,400 lives. He has also pledged to eliminate the Bush–Cheney tax cuts for the rich, while not raising taxes on the middle- and lower-classes.

ALERT: Environmental and Health Impacts of the BP Gulf Oil Spill / Politics / Environmental Issues

By: Dr_Tom_Termotto

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleTHE COMING OF THE BLACK WAVE

Nothing in our shared cultural experience will prepare us better for the oncomingBlack Wave throughout the Gulf of Mexico than the Exxon Valdez Oil Spill in Prince William Sound, Alaska. And yet even this environmental catastrophe falls far short of what is coming around the corner in the Gulf. Alaska is not Florida, or Louisiana, or Texas. The Deep South summer here in Tallahassee, FL has been as hot and humid as any we’ve seen. This weather pattern is what will distinguish the BP Gulf Oil Spill from the Exxon Valdez just as the total volume of the spill and use of dispersants have.

The Mainstream Media and the State Are Joined at the Hip, Sometimes Literally / Politics / Mainstream Media

By: LewRockwell

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleS.M. Oliva writes: Jon Leibowitz and Ruth Marcus married in 1994. They were the perfect Washington power couple: He was chief counsel to Sen. Herb Kohl (D-Wisc.) and she was a White House correspondent for the Washington Post. Sure, they were just cogs in the establishment, but they were still part of America's ruling class. And over the next decade-and-a-half, they solidified that standing. Marcus – who has worked at the Post for twenty-six years – rose through the ranks to become a member of the paper's editorial board and a regular op-ed columnist. Leibowitz remained with Sen. Kohl until 2000, when he joined the "private sector" as a lobbyist for the copyright industry (aka the Motion Picture Association of America). But in 2004 he returned to his natural habitat, the government, when he received one of five seats on the Federal Trade Commission.

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleGerald Celente – president of the Trends Research Institute and editor of Trends Research Journal – and LRC podcast guest – is interviewed on Russian TV, which tends to be freer than US TV. He discusses the economic collapse and social unrest ahead, and why we can not trust the ruling class or their universities. Americans are rightly angry at the oligarchs of Wall Street and the big banks. They feel cheated, and they have been cheated. They feel betrayed, and they have been betrayed.

Bring Down the Ruling Elite / Politics / US Politics

By: Gary_North

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleRuling elites as recently as 1600 appealed to God to justify their continuing rule. This was called the divine right of kings: rulership beyond any earthly court of appeal. That began to be undermined in the second half of the seventeenth century. A century later, Enlightenment democratic theory had replaced the divine right of kings. The divine right of Parliament or the divine right of the People replaced it.

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleJust when things seem like they can't get any worse, we receive the distressing news that the wealthy are starting to cut back. An Associated Press article earlier this week As Spending by Wealthy Weakens, so does Economy detailed the sad plight of the wealthy. Economists say the economy is slowing because the richest 5% of Americans — those earning at least $207,000 — are buying less. They account for about 14% of total consumer spending.
