U.S. Congress Supporting the War Instead of the Troops / Politics / US Politics

By: Dr_Ron_Paul

Last week, Congress debated a resolution directing the President to withdraw our troops from Afghanistan no later than the end of this year. The Constitution gives the power to declare war to the Congress, so it is clearly appropriate for Congress to assert its voice on matters of armed conflict. In recent decades, however, Congress has defaulted on this most critical duty, essentially granting successive presidents the unilateral (and clearly unconstitutional) power to begin and end wars at will. This resolution was not expected to pass; however, the ensuing debate and floor vote served some very important purposes.

The Greatest Financial Crime Ever Perpetrated, This Video Could Put Geithner Behind Bars / Politics / Credit Crisis 2008

By: Mike_Whitney

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleYou gotta see this! If this doesn't convince you that the Timothy Geithner knew about the securities shenanigans that were going on at Lehman, than I don't know what will.

Keep in mind, that Geithner ran Lehman through 3 "stress tests" prior to bankruptcy; all of which Lehman failed, and yet, nothing was done. Anton R. Valukas--the examiner who wrote the 2,200 page investigative-report which was released on Thursday-- has provided plenty of information detailing Lehman's “materially misleading” accounting and “actionable balance sheet manipulation.”

The Extraordinary Writs / Politics / US Politics

By: Charlie_Tarango

Most people have heard about and have a cursory knowledge of The Writ of Habeas Corpus.  That is but one of many.

The “Extraordinary Writs” ( Habeas Corpus, Prohibition, Mandamus, Certiorari, Attachment, et al., ), are the most powerful force in American Jurisprudence – and no individual – not even the President of the United States – is more powerful.

World’s Billionaires Grew 50 Percent Richer in 2009 / Politics / Social Issues

By: Global_Research

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleAndre Damon writes: 2009 will be remembered by millions of ordinary people as the year they lost their job, their house, or the prospect of an education. For the rich, however, it was a bonanza.

The world’s billionaires saw their wealth grow by 50 percent last year, and their ranks swell to 1,011, from 793, according to the latest Forbes list of billionaires.

More Propaganda from Washington's Corporate Media Partner / Politics / Mainstream Media

By: Mike_Stathis

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleLast week, Forbes published an article discussing cities across the U.S. "where the recession is ending."  

Let me begin in a tone that many of you have come to expect. In my opinion the article was misleading in an attempt to drum up consumer confidence, or else it was written by a someone with absolutely no understanding of what is going on; perhaps a combination of the two.

Government Media Complex Manipulated Statistics, The Greatest Show on Earth / Politics / Market Manipulation

By: Andy_Sutton

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleFor many years the title of ‘Greatest Show on Earth’ belonged to Ringling Brothers and its travelling circus. I had the pleasure of seeing the extravaganza for the first time about a year ago and was amazed at the talent of the performers, their skills, and the hours and hours of practice time that went into making everyone sit on the edge of their seats for the better part of two and a half hours.

Washington Must Ban U.S. Credit Derivatives: Games and Gold (Part 2) / Politics / Credit Crisis 2010

By: Janet_Tavakoli

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleIn an earlier post, I wrote that Congress should act immediately to abolish credit default swaps on the United States, because these derivatives will foment distortions in global currencies and gold. Credit defaults swaps on the United States currently settle in euros, but there is talk of creating new contracts calling for settlement in gold. This is just a trial balloon discussion at the moment, but it is one that Congress should immediately deflate along with all credit derivatives on the United States.

The Economic Stimulus Scam / Politics / Economic Stimulus

By: MISES

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleAntony P. Mueller writes: The recent improvement of the global economy, with particularly high economic-growth numbers for the United States, is just one more deception in a long series of deceptions that have plagued policy makers and investors. While official statistics register a rising gross domestic product, the long-term production potential of many economies around the world is actually contracting. The present economic expansion is brought about by massive stimulus policies. This kind of economic expansion does not constitute genuine economic growth.

Yet through the intensification of work, workers have also underwritten the profitability of finance. This has been generally ignored.

The recent demonstrations on California college campuses following the Tea Party protests of last summer bring up the intriguing possibility that we could actually see protesters againstgovernment spending and for government spending face off against each other in the streets.

Eurozone Governments Blame Greek Debt Crisis on Speculators Instead of Looking in the Mirror / Politics / Euro-Zone

By: Nadeem_Walayat

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleThe heads of Germany, France and Greece are continuing to highly vocally blame financial speculators for Greece's debt financing woes. This clearly amounts to political propaganda in an attempt to ms-direct the eyes of their electorate away from those culpable in bringing the crisis about against rising debt financing and insurance costs which is a SYMPTOM of the crisis and not its cause.
