America's War on Liberty / Politics / US Politics

By: Bill_Bonner

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleWe dipped our toes over the weekend, Fellow Reckoner. Re-tested the waters. We wanted to know whether, over the past ten years, the public discourse regarding 9/11 and the subsequent “War on Terror” – waged both on foreign soil and, increasingly, against the liberties of American citizens at home – had shifted. A few questions…

Greek workers plunged into social misery / Politics / Economic Austerity

By: Global_Research

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleRobert Stevens writes: With Greece verging on a default of its debt of around €330 billion, and facing a forced exit from the eurozone, the PASOK government of Prime Minister George Papandreou is escalating its austerity programme against an already pauperised population.

Since its election in October 2009, PASOK has initiated a social counter-revolution, destroying the living standards of the working class.

French bank downgrade increases pressure for austerity across Europe / Politics / Credit Crisis 2011

By: Barry_Grey

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleThe ratings firm Moody’s downgraded two of France’s biggest banks Wednesday, increasing pressure on governments across Europe to impose austerity measures on the working class.

Moody’s cut its rating for France’s second largest bank, Société Générale, from Aa2 to Aa3, and downgraded the third biggest bank, Crédit Agricole, from Aa1 to Aa2, citing their exposure to Greek government bonds. It left BNP Paribas, France’s biggest bank, at Aa2, while putting it on negative watch.

By: MISES

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleWendy McElroy writes: Last month, an international rights tribunal slapped America across the face through a showcase ruling that has no legal force. The Inter-American Commission on Human Rights found that Jessica Lenahan could sue the Castle Rock, Colorado, police department for its refusal in 1999 to enforce a restraining order against her estranged husband. The American courts had dismissed her case.

Why Obama Should Address the Rare Earth Crisis / Politics / Metals & Mining

By: Jeb_Handwerger

"A little bread-and-butter support by Obama could provide an important boost for the rare earth industry."

There is a fast growing crisis to modern industrial nations posed by China's draconian and monopolistic maneuvers in the implementation of a quota system. With one specific bread and butter support by Obama, the rare earth industry (REMX:NYSE) could receive an important boost, providing jobs and facilitating the development of a new industrial sector.

The Crisis of Europe and European Nationalism / Politics / Euro-Zone

By: STRATFOR

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleWhen I visited Europe in 2008 and before, the idea that Europe was not going to emerge as one united political entity was regarded as heresy by many leaders. The European enterprise was seen as a work in progress moving inevitably toward unification — a group of nations committed to a common fate. What was a core vision in 2008 is now gone. What was inconceivable — the primacy of the traditional nation-state — is now commonly discussed, and steps to devolve Europe in part or in whole (such as ejecting Greece from the eurozone) are being contemplated. This is not a trivial event.

Pakistan's Energy Crisis and U.S. Interests / Politics / Pakistan

By: OilPrice_Com

On 7 October 2001, the opening phase of "Operation Enduring Freedom" U.S. military campaign began, which quickly drove the Taliban and its al-Qaida affiliates from Kabul on 12 November.

Since then, 1,760 U.S. troops have been killed in Afghanistan along with 942 International Security Assistance Force soldiers, a total of 2,702 foreign military dead, with no end in sight.

President Obama Spoke in the Rose Garden / Politics / US Politics

By: George_Maniere

In a speech in the White House Rose Garden Monday morning, that I’m sure he hoped no one was watching, President Barack Obama said he would pay for his $447 billion jobs plan by ending a series of tax breaks for oil and gas companies, hedge-fund managers and people making more than $200,000. In total, this plan would end about $467 billion of tax breaks over 10 years.

Stupid Politician Monkeys Another Reason to Buy Gold / Politics / US Politics

By: David_Galland

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleDavid Galland, Managing Director, Casey Research writes: The human ape has any number of qualities not often found in other species of mammalia, including opposable thumbs and the ability to fashion and use tools.

Continuing the list, I would add a tendency to form all manner of mental constructs and to then act in accordance with those constructs, even when those constructs have little or no connection to reality.

German Court Opens Door to Uber-Empire and Uber-Collapse / Politics / Global Debt Crisis

By: John_Browne

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleIn the early days of September, financial markets worldwide were nervous. Investors and governments were waiting for a crucial ruling of the Federal Constitutional Court of Germany, a ruling that could have triggered the imminent collapse of the world's second currency, the euro. This past Wednesday, the court ruled that the German bailout of Greece did not violate the German Basic Law (i.e. constitution), and investors breathed a collective sigh of relief.

9/11 Go To Heaven / Politics / US Politics

By: Andrew_McKillop

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleCeremonies in the USA and Europe, and in the few other regions and countries where 9/11 business is taken seriously have with time shifted focus. The annual show of gravitas and determination to fight and win the War on Terror, cranked up on the back of the New York and Washington attacks of September 2001 now has another target:  deflecting, parrying and diluting the scary future.

Obama's Jobs Plan Will Barely Dent Unemployment / Politics / US Politics

By: Money_Morning

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleDavid Zeiler writes: Even if passed intact, U.S. President Barack Obama's jobs plan, though ambitious, would at most nudge down unemployment by a single percentage point over the next year.

Furthermore, the Republican-controlled House of Representatives will surely object to several provisions in the American Jobs Act - particularly the total $447 billion price tag - further diluting its impact.

Obama Jobs Plan To Screw Future Generations / Politics / US Politics

By: James_Quinn

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleFriday morning the Schuykill Expressway was jammed again due to an overturned car at Belmont Avenue. My first thought was how anyone could turn their car over at the usual 25 mph speeds on the Schuykill Expressway. My second thought was that I was damned to having to take the route from 69th Street in Upper Darby down Chestnut Street (aka The 30 Blocks of Squalor) to work. I was still steamed by Obama's $450 billion "JOBS" plan. His new plan was touted as an infrastructure plan when it is nothing but a "screw future generations" plan. Do these politicians have no shame?

The Economic Terror of 9/11 and What Really Happened / Politics / US Politics

By: Jeff_Berwick

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleLast month we marked the 40th anniversary of the Federal Reserve Note being a completely unbacked fiat currency. This month marks another major event in the demise of the US dollar, September the 11th.

While we've been on a one way road to monetary ruin since at least 1913 the response to the events of September 11, 2001 have greatly accelerated the process.

Can Government Debt Crisis Lies Calm the Financial Markets? / Politics / Global Debt Crisis

By: Mike_Shedlock

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleThe question of the day (for which everyone should know the answer) is Can Government Lies Calm the Markets?

In spite of the fact most of us realize lies will not help, and most often makes matters worse, governments repeatedly resort to lies, platitudes, and wishful thinking.
