Subversive Influences by Government Officials and their Allies to Shape Public Opinion / Politics / Conspiracy Theory

By: Joseph_Russo

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleWho is John Birch?

Did we mean, "Who is John Galt?" No, however, though we are all familiar with the profound inference surrounding the famous question from Ayn Rand's Atlas Shrugged, today we ask instead, who is John Birch?

Before we do, we must first ask, who is Robert Welch? He was the founder of the John Birch Society. Before we introduce you Mr. Welch and the society he founded, we wish to state that like every other political organization, JBS had its flaws and history of gaffs. Just like Congress, the Senate, Republicans, Democrats, the Tea Party, or the Occupy movement, no organization is exempt from flaws and valid criticisms.

London 2012 Britain's Security and Transport Disaster Olympics / Politics / UK Politics

By: Nadeem_Walayat

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleThe London 2012 Olympics reeks of seriously poor planning and management as virtually anything that can go wrong is going wrong, and this is even before the Olympics have even begun, we have had string after string of disastrous announcements as illustrated by the chaos surrounding G4S that was supposedly to oversee security for the whole Olympics who at the last count will be lucky to have half the security personal ready (if they bother to turn up for work). This has prompted another panic amongst the government to pull in another 3,000 troops to meet and greet peoples from around the world, where whilst some of whom will feel at home being under military occupation, most however will be shocked at the level of military presence.

Given hard times getting harder, what's happening now is unprecedented since the Great Depression. 

Cities occasionally declare bankruptcy. In America, they're coming more often. Others in dire financial straits may follow.

We’ve been sticking our necks out. We had a strong hunch that the rich had gotten a whole lot richer not because they were suddenly greedier or suddenly smarter, but because of the feds. The feds were handing out money. The rich were first in line.

Genetically Altered Foods – Are they safe? A proposed harmful change in controls / Politics / GM Foods

By: Submissions

Larry Cyna writes: Change in Regulations
There is an uproar in the US currently. Buried in the House Farm Bill, approved by the House Agriculture Committee on Friday, is the agribusiness industry’s latest attempt to shed regulations restricting new genetically engineered (GE) crops. While the bill’s massive food stamps cuts elicited widespread outcry, the industry quietly inserted provisions to rush new crops onto the market after only a cursory review of their safety. The uproar comes as lawmakers are attempting to reduce spending in the wake of the massive US deficit. Groups opposed to genetically altered foods are protesting the elimination of controls over genetically altered foods.

Corruption and Mismanagement See Much of the US Without Power / Politics / US Politics

By: OilPrice_Com

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleAmidst record-high temperatures and a very anti-climactic 4th of July, power outages have left millions without air-conditioning and even water in rural areas where households rely on electric pumps. At least 52 people have died from heat and three million people are still without power.

No it's not Yemen, where power outages in the capital Sana'a have sparked a new round of protests. It's the United States of America, where corruption converges with a moribund electricity distribution system to produce increasingly frequent blackouts across the Midwest and East Coast.

Focus on the 20% Because You Can Replace Lost Money But Not Lost Time / Politics / Social Issues

By: Gary_North

Diamond Rated - Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleIf this were a law firm, you would be wise to hire another.

I define puttering as follows: "Unsystematic work that fills time without accomplishing much output." I define frittering as follows: "The refusal to take advantage of opportunities that have been placed in your hand."

I have known some very successful people over the years. Some have been rich. Others have been influential. All of them have had this in common. They have not puttered. They have also not frittered.

Disclose Act (s. 3369) Destroying the First Amendment / Politics / US Politics

By: Submissions

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleJohn Rolls submits, KrisAnne Hall writes: ALERT: The Disclose Act (s. 3369)has been resurrected and it will further destroy the remnants of our 1stAmendment and diminish the power of our grassroots groups!

It is always shocking to me that those we elect are absolutely clueless to the true government that they were elected to support and defend.  Day in and day out we hear our representatives refer to our government as a “democracy.”  Our founders did not establish a democracy, they established a republic.   At the conclusion of the Constitutional Convention in 1787, Benjamin Franklin was asked by a women referred to as Mrs. Powel of Philadelphia, “Well, Doctor, what have we, a republic or a monarchy?” It is said that Dr. Franklin, without hesitation, said, “A Republic, ma’am, if you can keep it.”  Here we are 225 years later and our own representatives do not know the correct answer to this question.

Belief in the Fed Heads South / Politics / Central Banks

By: Paul_Lamont

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleIn 1720, British legislators considered the South Sea Company's proposal to privatize the national debt. While they debated this swap of debt (in the form of annuities) for stock, a speculative mania for South Sea shares began. Edward Chancellor in Devil Take the Hindmost relates; "Exchange Alley in April 1720 resembled 'nothing so much as if all the Lunatics had escaped out of the Madhouse at once.'"

Most remarkable in this particular financial episode was the involvement of high level authorities.

The Paradox of China's Naval Strategy / Politics / China

By: STRATFOR

Diamond Rated - Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleOver the past decade, the South China Sea has become one of the most volatile flashpoints in East Asia. China, Vietnam, the Philippines, Malaysia, Brunei and Taiwan each assert sovereignty over part or all of the sea, and these overlapping claims have led to diplomatic and even military standoffs in recent years.

Because the sea hosts numerous island chains, is rich in mineral and energy resources and has nearly a third of the world's maritime shipping pass through its waters, its strategic value to these countries is obvious. For China, however, control over the South China Sea is more than just a practical matter and goes to the center of Beijing's foreign policy dilemma: how to assert its historic maritime claims while maintaining the non-confrontational foreign policy established by former Chinese leader Deng Xiaoping in 1980.

Democracy, Tyranny and the 'good American' –the clock is approaching Midnight / Politics / US Politics

By: Michael_T_Bucci

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleWhat is so difficult for the majority of Americans to recognize, and for a majority of critical writers to accept, is that they—the so-called "people"—have turned to stone. They—the so called "people"—have become "good Germans". They—the so-called "people"—have been induced into an authoritarianism that threatens to open the door to tyranny: tyranny in government, in religion, in corporatism, in finance, and in and through a mushrooming military-security state that already is the deadliest toxin permeating every air molecule democracy inhales. Fascism and Totalitarianism are the watchwords of the day. The solution is not a Gold Standard, but a Moral Standard.

Ron Paul: Inflation is a Monetary Phenomenon / Politics / Inflation

By: Dr_Ron_Paul

Later this month Congress will have an unprecedented opportunity to force the Federal Reserve to provide meaningful transparency to lawmakers and taxpayers. HR 459, my bill known as "Audit the Fed," is scheduled for a vote before the full Congress in July. More than 270 of my colleagues cosponsored the bill, and it has the support of congressional leadership. But its passage in the House of Representatives is only the beginning of the battle, as many Senators and the President still don't see the critical need to have a national discussion about monetary policy.

A Better Way To Finance Public Projects / Politics / Credit Crisis 2012
