Can Syria's Rebels Overthrow Assad? / Politics / Middle East

By: OilPrice_Com

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleAs rebels attempt to regroup in advance of a new strategy to overpower Assad, and Western powers try to start from scratch with a new rebel formation that is presumably devoid of Salafi Jihadists, the US is calling on third party, non-state actors to arm the rebels in order to avoid becoming embroiled in a geopolitically sensitive conflict just ahead of presidential elections. As attentions turn to the chaos breaking out across the Middle East and North Africa (and even further afield), what chance do the rebels have of pushing Assad to his limits? Michael Bagley, President of the Jellyfish Operations private intelligence boutique, which has adopted an approach that is contrary to the typical "yes-man" characteristics of its competitors, calls a spade a spade.

The Seeds of Conflict: Anglo-American Axis and Chinese History / Politics / US Politics

By: Ron_Holland

Best Financial Markets Analysis Article"It is this Anglo-American axis (a 'special relationship') that has dominated the Western world for the past 150 years. It is a secretive and closely guarded group of families and individuals with enormous wealth derived from the implementation of mercantilist central banking. In recent years, America has provided the military power and to a large extent the corporate vehicles that have projected the 'one world' vision of the Anglo-American elite throughout the West, and even to Africa and Asia." – The Daily Bell, Glossary

Federal Reserve Policy of Legalized Plunder / Politics / Central Banks

By: Casey_Research

Diamond Rated - Best Financial Markets Analysis Article“Legalized Plunder – Why we have all been had, fooled and deceived…. and the surprising reason we keep asking for more of the same bad medicine”

Author G Edward Griffin was pilloried from all sides when his book The Creature from Jekyll Island was first published in 1994.

18 years later, when prediction after prediction has come true, and Griffins claim that we are in the middle of enormous changes to society that will affect your lifestyle, your livelihood and your financial wellbeing are playing out every day, people are taking notice.

NHS GP Standards in Free Fall, Complaints Soar by 23%, GMC Sticks Head in Sand / Politics / NHS

By: N_Walayat

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleTo be blunt, NHS GP's are increasingly NOT doing their jobs, ignoring patient symptoms, fail to refer even misleading patients that a referral has been made, forcing patients to pay for routine referrals with the icing on the cake of obnoxious reception staff who see their jobs as doing their up most at hindering patients in pursuit of competent healthcare. This is the message from the latest GMC report that concludes that patient complaints have soared by 23% during 2011, that is resulting in patients increasingly being forced to pay to see competent private GP's therefore in effect patients are being forced to pay twice for healthcare, once through high extortionate taxes to fund the life-styles of increasingly part-time NHS GP's (3day surgery consultation weeks) and then again for actual diagnoses and referral.

Banking union fallacies 5 - DG MARKT complicit in capital controls? / Politics / Eurozone Debt Crisis

By: ECB_Watch

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleAccording to the FT, Mari Draghi claims that, in response to the sovereign debt crisis, national supervisors have been imposing capital controls on the banks in their jurisdictions. Daniel Gros from CEPS—'who developed original plans for EMU—warned against a similar scenario to underscore 'national bias' in financial regulation.

“The Innocence of Muslims”: Blasphemy as a Political Tactic / Politics / Religion

By: Global_Research

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleThierry Meyssan writes: The circulation on the Internet of the trailer for a film, The Innocence of Muslims, sparked demonstrations across the world and resulted in the killing in Benghazi of the U.S. Ambassador to Libya and members of his entourage.

At first glance, these events can be located in the long line leading from Salman Rushdie’s Satanic Verses to the burnings of the Koran by Pastor Terry Jones. Nevertheless, this new attack differs from other incidents in that the film was not directed at a Western audience but instead was uniquely conceived as an instrument of provocation directed at Muslims.

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.
