We Are Being Spent Into Oblivion  / Politics / Government Spending

By: Roy_F_Grieder

As we continue to ponder and debate, with way too much focus, on the mundane and inane, the perfect storm grows and rapidly approaches. It brings with it a financial tsunami and a societal train wreck. October 2008 was the outer wall of the storm, we have been living in the eye since then. Now the inner wall approaches: the global debt crisis.

IMF Economic Fear Mongering Comes to America / Politics / US Debt

By: Ellen_Brown

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleIn addition to mandatory private health insurance premiums, we may soon be hit with a “mandatory savings” tax and other belt-tightening measures urged by the President’s new budget task force.  These radical austerity measures are not only unnecessary, however, but will actually make matters worse.  The push for “fiscal responsibility” is based on bad economics.

Were the Founding Fathers Media Socialists? / Politics / US Politics

By: Ayn_Rand

The Federal Communications Commission’s Chief Diversity Officer, Mark Lloyd, wants government to socialize the media. In his 2006 book Prologue to a Farce, Lloyd calls for a far-reaching government program that would straitjacket private media companies and funnel tens of billions of dollars into a tax-supported “public” media--an agenda shared by many of his associates. A massive nonprofit media run by the state would better inform Americans, Lloyd claims, although, feeling generous, he allows that “there should be a place for private communications services in a republic.”

Crashing Towards a New World Social Order 2012 / Politics / New World Order

By: Global_Research

Diamond Rated - Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleRichard K. Moore writes: Historical background – the establishment of capitalist supremacy

When the Industrial Revolution began in Britain, in the late 1700s, there was lots of money to be made by investing in factories and mills, by opening up new markets, and by gaining control of sources of raw materials. The folks who had the most money to invest, however, were not so much in Britain but more in Holland. Holland was the leading Western power in the 1600s, and its bankers were the leading capitalists. In pursuit of profit, Dutch capital flowed to the British stock market, and thus the Dutch funded the rise of Britain, who subsequently eclipsed Holland both economically and geopolitically.

By: Global_Research

Diamond Rated - Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleMatt Taibbi writes: Goldman Sachs and other big banks aren't just pocketing the trillions we gave them to rescue the economy - they're re-creating the conditions for another crash

On January 21st, Lloyd Blankfein left a peculiar voicemail message on the work phones of his employees at Goldman Sachs. Fast becoming America's pre-eminent Marvel Comics supervillain, the CEO used the call to deploy his secret weapon: a pair of giant, nuclear-powered testicles. In his message, Blankfein addressed his plan to pay out gigantic year-end bonuses amid widespread controversy over Goldman's role in precipitating the global financial crisis.

Freedom and Truth, Leaps and Bounds / Politics / Mainstream Media

By: Viresh_Amin

Libertarian, Anarcho-Capitalist, and Austrian economist’s, along with other freedom thinkers are aware of the state and their influence over the masses. The brainwashing that occurs every day is excessively sickening and the manner in which it’s done is even worse. Through the control of the mainstream media the state has for decade’s channeled false information from school history books, newspapers, journals, and television to lead us to believe into their scams. The only pollution in the air is that which comes from corrupt minds.

Reconcile This! / Politics / US Politics

By: Danny_Schechter

Reconciliation is one of those words that sounds great when used in another country

Right-wing whites along with the rest of the world embraced South Africa’s peace and reconciliation process as a way to put apartheid crimes on the record without a punitive witch-hunt that would intensify racial and political tensions. Archbishop Desmond Tutu chaired a panel to hear evidence without the power to execute or imprison or execute wrongdoers.

Obama Healthcare and Snow-cialism / Politics / US Politics

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleVedran Vuk, Casey Research writes: There is a silver lining to every snowstorm - getting to know your neighbors both good and bad. With forty inches on my block this week, I've learned a lot about my neighbors and, strangely enough, socialism.

My corner of Baltimore seems like a good place to ride out a storm. After all, innumerable cars are plastered with Obama bumper stickers, and windows display signs like "Universal Healthcare Now." In essence, it's a very liberal neighborhood in an extremely liberal state. What better neighborhood to be in times of need, right?
