More of Less from Obama / Politics / US Politics

By: Mike_Stathis

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleIn tradition with the previous empty bag delivered by President Bush, President Obama has continued to offer Americans more of less when it comes to ways to ensure a viable retirement. In reality, Obama's announced changes do nothing more than ensure Washington gets financing for its reckless spending habits, while lining the pockets of the largely useless mutual fund industry.

America's Decide Nothing Congress / Politics / US Politics

By: Stephen_Merrill

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleWhen the United States Constitution was corrupted in the 1930’s to change the meaning of the Commerce Clause to include unlimited federal powers in the economy, it was the US Congress that was made omnipotent.  Only the Congress has the authority to control interstate commerce under the Constitution.  The powers of Congress waxed for decades after the 30’s steadily protruding into all aspects of American life.

Financial and Economic Crisis Justice Denied / Politics / Credit Crisis Bailouts

By: Stephen_Merrill

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleAs America’s financial house of cards collapsed, the first response of President George Bush was to give everyone on the tax rolls a $600 cash gift.  When this had little effect, his next move was to give Wall Street a flat $700 billion while throwing in hundreds of billions more of extra bailout for AIG and Citibank and others.

Taking Down a Nation: Money, Murder and National Sovereignty / Politics / Market Manipulation

By: Nikki_Alexander

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleIf you wanted to destroy the infrastructure that holds our constitutional republic in place, how would you go about that? As with a controlled demolition you would need to dislodge the foundation from the bedrock where it is anchored and weaken the framework that holds the structure together. In practice, you would demolish the laws that support the legal and financial structure. Our constitutional republic would then collapse into its own footprint, meeting no resistance.

Neo-Capitalist Principles of 20th Century Fall Apart at the Seams / Politics / Credit Crisis 2009

By: Pravda

The neo-capitalist principles of the end of the 20th and the beginning of the 21st centuries are falling apart at the seams. It became obvious as a result of the meeting of finance ministers, who gathered for the G20 summit in London on Saturday, September 5. The summit precedes the G20 summit which is slated to take place in Pittsburg on September 24-25.

Labor Day, The Unknown Holiday / Politics / US Politics

By: Walter_Brasch

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleIt's Labor Day, and that means millions of Americans are celebrating. Most Americans have no idea what Labor Day is, other than self-serving political speeches, hot dogs, burgers, a pool party, and the last day of a three-day holiday. Few even know that Labor Day exists to allow people to remember and honor the struggles for respect, dignity, and acceptable wages and working conditions for the rank-and-file employees.

Gold be Damned! Where is Aquinas? / Politics / US Politics

By: Michael_T_Bucci

I don't suppose many in the U.S. know that Saturday, 05 September, saw an eruption of street fighting in Central Birmingham (UK) between "right wing protestors" and those calling themselves "anti-fascists". But what does this mean to the price of Gold? To the dismay of many, Gold yet remains to reach its potential despite years of prophetic anticipation and hard-sell. But to both sides of the political equation that reached gutter level proportions on Bennetts Street, Gold be damned! It is where their country is headed that matters. Unlike in America, in England and most of the EU, the word fascism is permitted in public discourse. Unlike in America, it is being identified and is being opposed.

Financial and Geopolitical Intelligence, Gain From the Banking Cartel Game Plan / Politics / Global Financial System

By: DeepCaster_LLC

Diamond Rated - Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleStudying The Cartel* Game Plan, to the (considerable) extent that that Plan can be inferred from Cartel actions and their consequences (see below), can be a significant aid in making profitable investment decisions.

Asking key questions which arise from market or economic developments which appear to be rationally inexplicable, often reveals important aspects of that Game Plan.

911 OMEN Foretells the Global Economic & Financial Future / Politics / Financial Crash

By: T_Anthony_Michael

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleA once in a millennium kairotic moment occurred on 9/11 of 2001 that still promises to usher in the most profound and fundamental societal transformation of our times.  This earth-shattering event, which truly represents one the primary apocalytic prophecies of the modern era, remains pregnant with the potential to catalyze unprecedented change in every sphere of life in the USA and beyond.  However, in order to take full advantage of this extremely unique opportunity for political, economic and social revolution, something must first give way.That something is nothing other that the misplaced trust that American citizens have customarily put in their government, their media, their corporations, their academic institutions, their financial institutions, etc.

Financial Crisis a Failure of Capitalism? / Politics / Credit Crisis 2009

The Government's Cooked Books / Politics / US Debt

By: Jacob_Shreffler

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleShould the United States ever adopt the same accounting standards for itself that it foists upon private enterprise, its financial reports would leave the majority of Americans in a state of shock. Americans would have tremendous difficulty recovering from the magnitude of misrepresentation that is going on now. Accounting isn't just a game either; there are material, legal, and ethical consequences when it's done wrong.

Health Care and the Free Market / Politics / Healthcare Sector

By: David_Kendall

Best Financial Markets Analysis Article"With millions unemployed, and health care costs rising through the roof, and the only answer ever given to unemployment is 'go back to school', why are there still so few medical schools that 1/3 of our doctors are imported and Americans who want to be doctors frequently have to resort to joining the military in order to be trained? We should have a doctor on every corner, competing with each other." [1]

How to Lower the U.S. Deficit Without Killing Social Security / Politics / US Economy

By: Shamus_Cooke

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleWhen it was recently announced that the federal deficit was $2 trillion higher than previously estimated, corporate vultures — after years of high-altitude circling — began their descent.

The dying entity they’re after is the U.S. social safety net — Social Security, Medicare, etc.  Years of waiting have finally paid off; the long awaited pretext for scavenging has arrived in the huge federal deficit.&

Obghanistan, More for the Meat Grinder / Politics / Afghanistan

By: Ron_Shirtz

Throughout July and August of this year, US forces suffered almost 90 soldiers killed in Afghanistan. Heeding recommendations from military leaders and his advisors, President Obama has approved sending 17,000 troops, which includes a 5,000-member Marine Regimental Combat Team, to support the overextended combat troops in southern Afghanistan. While these numbers may seem impressive, in military terms this is the equivalent of scrounging couch change trying to pay off a balloon mortgage payment.
