How Could Illegal Immigration Make America Any Worse Than It Already Is? / Politics / US Politics

By: LewRockwell

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleMark R. Crovelli writes: Way back in the 1950’s, one could perhaps be excused for fearing that unhampered "illegal" immigration would lead to a dissolution of the American republic, as throngs of uneducated foreigners with different cultural values overran the existing American population. Indeed, one might have been justified in thinking, as many conservatives in fact did, that the unique "American experiment" depended upon the prevention of an influx of foreigners of the old-world mentality, who did not understand or appreciate individual liberty the way Americans did.

Happy Birthday Social Security? / Politics / US Politics

By: Neeraj_Chaudhary

In his weekly radio address this past Saturday, President Obama happily commemorated the 75th anniversary of Social Security. From my perspective, the milestone is nothing to celebrate. For although the president spoke earnestly about the "obligation to keep the promise" of Social Security, in reality, the program will wreck the government's finances within 10 years.

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleElena Pustovoitova writes: There is no question where the US forces withdrawn from Iraq will go – Afghanistan is known to be the next destination.

In the process, Washington manages to demonstrate a commitment to peace. The US President is convinced that the US mission in Iraq can be “safely” finished by the end of August and the US will pull out by the end of the year, says White House Press Secretary Robert Gibbs.

Best Financial Markets Analysis Article"Economics is haunted by more fallacies than any other study known to man." Henry Hazlett


The argument that 'tax cuts for the wealthiest few stimulates growth' aka the trickle down theory needs to be buried alongside the 'efficient markets hypothesis' and the other principle beliefs of voodoo economics that have brought the US from the world's greatest nation to third world status in a generation.

WSJ Wants Government Subsidies for Mainstream Media / Politics / Mainstream Media

By: MISES

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleJeff Harding writes: I almost choked when I read Lee Bollinger's op-ed piece in the Wall Street Journal advocating public financial support of the mainstream media. This is the Lee Bollinger who is the president of Columbia University and was recently named deputy chair of the New York Federal Reserve Bank. The article says more about the writer and the mainstream media than it does its subject matter. It is unbelievable and irresponsible that anyone in his position should seriously advocate subsidies for the press.

By: Ellen_Brown

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleOver 62 million mortgages are now held in the name of MERS, an electronic recording system devised by and for the convenience of the mortgage industry.  A California bankruptcy court, following landmark cases in other jurisdictions, recently held that this electronic shortcut breaks the chain of title, voiding foreclosure.  The logical result could be 62 million homes that are foreclosure-proof.

Why WikiLeaks Must Be Protected / Politics / US Politics

By: Submissions

John Pilger writes: On 26 July, Wikileaks released thousands of secret US military files on the war in Afghanistan. Cover-ups, a secret assassination unit and the killing of civilians are documented. In file after file, the brutalities echo the colonial past. From Malaya and Vietnam to Bloody Sunday and Basra, little has changed. The difference is that today there is an extraordinary way of knowing how faraway societies are routinely ravaged in our name. Wikileaks has acquired records of six years of civilian killing for both Afghanistan and Iraq, of which those published in the Guardian, Der Spiegel and the New York Times are a fraction.

U.S. Iraq Withdrawal Limited Options / Politics / Iraq War

By: STRATFOR

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleIt is August 2010, which is the month when the last U.S. combat troops are scheduled to leave Iraq. It is therefore time to take stock of the situation in Iraq, which has changed places with Afghanistan as the forgotten war. This is all the more important since 50,000 troops will remain in Iraq, and while they may not be considered combat troops, a great deal of combat power remains embedded with them. So we are far from the end of the war in Iraq. The question is whether the departure of the last combat units is a significant milestone and, if it is, what it signifies. Read full article...

In July, 45 soldiers from the international contingent, 33 of them Americans, have been killed in Afghanistan.

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleFelicity Arbuthnot writes: .. to wade through slaughter ... and shut the gates of mercy on mankind." Thomas Gray (1716-1771.)

The scale of the disaster caused by the floods in Pakistan, is barely comprehensible. As Juan Cole has written, expressing near disbelief : "The submerged area of the country is as big as the United Kingdom, fourteen million Pakistanis are affected, two million are homeless." Six million need immediate relief, according to the UN., and thirty six thousand are suffering from acute diarrhoeal symptoms, with cholera already diagnosed. 1,600 are reported dead, with the number certain to multiply. Famine is a real possibility.

Massive Widespread Economic Pain Across America / Politics / US Politics

By: Joel_S_Hirschhorn

the United States is not kaput it is certainly withering away even as a rich upper class enjoys all the things that money buys.  There is massive, widespread economic pain inflicting a huge fraction of Americans who are unemployed, underemployed, relying on food stamps, losing their homes, and who are feeling totally insecure financially.  This maintains sluggish consumer spending that makes necessary economic growth impossible.
