Ron Paul - Consequences of U.S. Interventionist Foreign Policy / Politics / US Politics

By: Dr_Ron_Paul

The attack on the US consulate in Libya and the killing of the US Ambassador and several aides is another tragic example of how our interventionist foreign policy undermines our national security. The more the US tries to control the rest of the world, either by democracy promotion, aid to foreign governments, or by bombs, the more events spin out of control into chaos, unintended consequences, and blowback.

Twin Demons of War and Central Banking / Politics / US Politics

By: LewRockwell

Diamond Rated - Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleThe twentieth century was the century of total war. Limitations on the scope of war, built up over many centuries, had already begun to break down in the nineteenth century, but they were altogether obliterated in the twentieth. And of course the sheer amount of resources that centralized states could bring to bear in war, and the terrible new technologies of killing that became available to them, made the twentieth a century of almost unimaginable horror.

Bernanke And Draghi Are Not Trying To Save Our Economies / Politics / Quantitative Easing

By: Raul_I_Meijer

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleObviously, after a week of big-time announcements, the German Supreme Court, Mario Draghi's bond buying scheme and Ben Bernanke's QE3 (both virtually unlimited - or presented as such), it's tempting to think the western world is well on its way to tackling its financial crises. Looking at the stock markets one might even presume all's fine out there already.

The Economic Dreamtime Comes Of Age / Politics / US Economy

By: Andrew_McKillop

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleFor at least 4 years, hundreds of commentators have analyzed and predicted "the slow train wreck" of the global economy. Advice they give ranges from buying gold to not spending extravagantly, avoiding the "home equity trap" of buying apartments or houses, avoiding the stock market and staying mobile. What we have instead of the train wreck is “anticipation management” by the markets and a predictable and constant, "reassuring" talk up of the general economy and its so-called resilience by mainstream financial media, from Bloomberg and the Economist, to the WSJ and FT. Their game is to tell us there is no end in sight for spinning out the party.

How to Correct the Course of America / Politics / US Politics

By: BATR

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleFor every person, answering the question how to correct the course for America, there is a personal viewpoint that often varies upon circumstance. However, the underlying premise is that something is wrong that needs fixing. The couch potatoes drift through life voluntarily removing their involvement from the political process as much as possible. All one needs to upset this tranquility is to strike up a conversation with a stranger and dare bring up any political or social issue and ask for their opinion. Most seldom reflect upon specifics and even fewer are able to lay out a sound and cogent thought for righting the ship of state. Moreover, to the horror of any intelligent citizen, a very significant segment of the public is content with the status quo and sees no reason to change anything.

Libya Was Doomed from Day One / Politics / Middle East

By: OilPrice_Com

People often ask me why the West doesn't attempt a Libya-style intervention in Syria. After all, things are going so well in Libya. Oil production is up. But oil production is merely a mirage, as is security in Libya, which was doomed from the day one PG (post-Gaddafi) because of the way it was "liberated".

Last Wednesday, US envoy to Libya Christopher Stevens was killed along with three other American diplomats in a rocket attack on the US consulate in Benghazi.

The Deficit, The Economic Consequences of a Political Decision / Politics / US Debt

By: John_Mauldin

Diamond Rated - Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleWe are often told that the current election is the most important in recent history. I think I have heard that in about ten presidential cycles, ever since I first voted, for McGovern, as a young man. And looking back, only about one of those elections actually qualified on that score. I think this election does have the potential to be one of those rare times, at least in terms of economic outcomes. In Thoughts from the Frontline we cover economics and investments, money and finance. We only rarely stray into the political world, and then only glancingly. Today, we cross that gray line, but at a somewhat different angle, as we look at the economic consequences of the political decision that will come with the choices we make in November in the US.

The Short, Miserable Life of American Prosperity / Politics / US Politics

By: John_Kozy

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleTo forget one’s purpose is the commonest form of stupidity.”— Friedrich Nietzsche

History is not always progressive; there have been many instances of extensive regression. Immoral institutions can more easily become worse than better. When the Capitalists have accumulated all the wealth there is and have the means to take away any that is subsequently created, what will the mass of mankind have become? Dignified people enjoying the good life? Wherein does mankind’s fate lie?

The Chicago Mob Called Teachers / Politics / Education

By: Gary_North

Diamond Rated - Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleIn my previous report, "How to Break the Chicago Teachers Strike in Seven Days," I discussed the economics of the teachers union. You can read the report here.

The American Federation of Teachers is a paper tiger. The organization bases its bargaining ability on what is now a legislated restraint, namely, the shortage of teachers. There is no shortage of teachers at the wage scale that is imposed by the American Federation of Teachers on local school boards.

Youtube "Innocence of Muslims", "Broadcast Act of Terror" Recruiting Video for Al-Qeeda / Politics / Propaganda

Under the guise of freedom of speech Youtube continues to broadcast a highly blasphemous video for muslims that to all intents and purposes is acting as a recruiting video for Al-Qeeda on par with the Abu Graib, and civilian Kill video own goals committed by the US Military in Iraq.

Good, the Bad, and the Ugly of Today's Journalism / Politics / Mainstream Media

By: Casey_Research

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleLouis: Hola Doug. What's on your mind this week?

Doug: The color yellow. As in "yellow journalism" – which seems almost the only kind we have these days. Of course, to be fair, inflammatory, shamelessly dishonest "man bites dog" journalism has always been the dominant kind, simply because it sells papers. But we'll see more than the usual amount in the next couple of months, simply because elections lend themselves to it; politics seems to stimulate the reptilian part of the brain, the most primitive part. Both politics and the reptilian brain relate well to the yellow press.

Israel on the Offensive In Bid To Press President Obama To Attack Iran / Politics / US Politics

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleNew York, New York: It feels like Iran Week in the USA.

Using an exaggerated if fictive Iranian threat to create nuclear weapons as their pretext, Israeli politicians are blatantly and publicly inserting themselves in America’s Presidential elections, demanding that President Obama do their bidding by articulating so-called “red lines” to further threaten Tehran.

Wisdom Renaissance: How to Embrace the Conceptual Age? Unite the Left Brain with the Right! / Politics / Social Issues

By: DK_Matai

Aesthetic design... Story-telling... Harmony-in-concert... Cultivation-of-empathy... Team-playing... Finding-meaning... This is where the future is being conceived right now and it no longer automatically belongs to people and organisations that have been successful in the past. Moving forwards, it belongs to different kinds of personalities with different kinds of mind-sets. Today -- amid the uncertainties of national economies that have gone from boom to bust to near flat-lining or negative GDP growth -- there's a metaphor that explains what is going on and its right inside our heads. The triumphant London Olympics and Paralympics have shown not just the population of the United Kingdom but billions around the world what can be achieved through the combination of left-brain and right-brain activity including the amplification of the grand narrative via aesthetic design, story-telling, harmony-in-concert, cultivation-of-empathy, team-playing and finding meaning and purpose in our ordinary lives rendered extraordinary by coming together as one.
