The Higgs Boson, Global Warming And Green Energy / Politics / Climate Change

By: Andrew_McKillop

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleCoinciding with the failed climate talks in Durban, mainly due to the European Union's bizarre and kamikaze negotiating stance, another European marvel of government spending - CERN - announced its research teams could or might have glimpsed the Higgs boson. They say it might well exist. Only might exist, note it well. Most people neither know or care what a Higgs boson might be but it should have a partner thing out there in the Universe, called the graviton. The boson would "explain" mass while the graviton would "explain" gravity, in the same way other government-paid scientists and the politicians who pay them say that CO2 "explains" climate change, which exists, but their explanation needs global warming - which might not exist.

U.S. Wastes $3.5 Trillion on Iraq War, Prepares for War Against Iran / Politics / Iraq War

By: Global_Research

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleBill Van Auken writes: The White House has used the imminent withdrawal of all but a handful of US troops from Iraq to promote Barack Obama’s reelection campaign. The president’s strategists are conducting a cynical propaganda operation aimed at simultaneously identifying him with the military and pushing the claim that the pullout is a fulfillment of his 2008 campaign promises.

Legislating Tyranny in America, Orwell and Beyond / Politics / US Politics

By: Stephen_Lendman

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleObama won't prosecute CIA torturers, Wall Street crooks, other corporate criminals, lawless war profiteers, or other venal high-level civilian or government officials.

Instead, expect him to sign into law (or at least tacitly approve) indefinite military detentions of US citizens allegedly associated with terrorist groups, with or without corroborating evidence.

Euro Crisis: David Cameron, Britain’s Financial Arsonist Returns to the Scene of the Crime / Politics / Euro-Zone

By: Finian_Cunningham

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleThe incendiary finance capitalism unleashed by Britain 25 years ago is at the heart of Europe’s raging debt woes

You either have to admire British Prime Minister David Cameron’s brass neck, or wince at his arrogant stupidity. The smart money is probably on the latter option.

The ESM Financial Insolvency and the Bailout of Europe's Mega Banks / Politics / Eurozone Debt Crisis

By: Bob_Chapman

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleAfter watching Europe’s performance last week the only thing they really were after was an ESM, European Stabilization Mechanism, to tie down all EU nations to a tighter regional set up. As it turns out England and others did not agree. Britain obviously does not want to become part of a new treaty that deprives them of their sovereignty. This regional government concept appeared in the early 1960s and is now going to be pushed in Europe with the US to follow. Our question, is England just trying to protect the advantages of the “City of London,” or is the disagreement deeper than that? A new treaty will take two years for ratification, but in the meantime an agreement will hold forth on what can be called a handshake. Evidence is still out on whether this is an attempt by Germany to break up the euro zone and the EU or a genuine effort to set up a platform for world government. We know that since WWII that the internationalists have been setting up Europe as the foundation for world government. On the other hand we know that 65% to 70% of the German people want no part of it from any standpoint.

Those "New" E.U. Fiscal Rules Aren't So New / Politics / Euro-Zone

By: Money_Morning

Shah Gilani writes: Very soon we will see if the old market adage "Buy the rumor, sell the news" is true.

While rumors of Europe's impending demise were momentarily shot down by an array of silver bullets, the actual news out of Brussels of a grand bargain wasn't... exactly... honest.

The US Becomes Just Another Military Dictatorship / Politics / US Politics

By: LewRockwell

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleScott Lazarowitz writes: Within days after my article on due process and presumption of innocence, the U.S. Senate voted to empower the U.S. military to apprehend and detain indefinitely anyone in America, based on the whim of the soldier or military commander, and it will probably eventually include any armed agent of government including local police. As Jacob Hornberger noted, this new provision will codify the U.S. as just another one of many dictatorships throughout world history.

More Reasons to Say 'Thanks' Before Waving Good-Bye to the United States / Politics / US Politics

By: Jeff_Berwick

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleThis joyous holiday season, those still living in the US should give thanks for one thing: that it's not 2012 yet. If you haven't begun the countdown, now's the time. And there's not a whole lot left of it before it's too late.

You see, the overlords in DC have a host of new disciplinary and capital-control legislation ready to be unleashed upon the populace starting in less than a month.

Markets of Shame Before The Collapse: Crisis, Crisis, Everywhere / Politics / Credit Crisis 2011

By: Danny_Schechter

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleEarlier this week, Stephen Colbert announced dramatically that there were important developments underway in Europe that we should know about.

True to form, Colbert’s Repor didn’t talk about the big problem. His story, ha ha ha, was about a butter shortage in Norway.  Talk about going from the obscure to the ridiculous.

Europe's Ride To Hell In A Handcart / Politics / Euro-Zone

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleIn a recent article 'Smokescreen Europe' I underlined one of the scariest, most laughable new realities of the European ride to oblivion. Nothing comes out of the endless ballet of special crisis summits where heads of state predictably pose and preen. The crisis deepens.

Out of Answers, Federal Reserve Can Only Offer Empty Rhetoric / Politics / Central Banks

By: Money_Morning

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleDavid Zeiler writes: The Federal Open Market Committee (FOMC) is scheduled to issue a statement at 2:15 pm. today (Tuesday), but don't expect anything other than more empty rhetoric.

Indeed, with few options remaining, the Fed is expected to produce little more than a statement designed to reassure the markets following today's meeting.

Falsification of Greek public finance data : EU regulatory bodies' (absence of) response / Politics / Credit Crisis 2010

By: ECB_Watch

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleThis is a follow up to the blog entry Deceptive tactics were used to thrust a head the nomination of the new ECB President. Here, we look into the broader issue of the falsification of Greece's public finance data: Eurostat audits, Jean Claude Trichet's willful hindrance against the release of ECB records, Goldman Sachs' communication, and whether the EU Parliament (Sharon Bowles), the Commission (Olli Rehn) and the European Securities and Markets Authority (Verena Ross) were proactive enough.

The Fraud "Blind Spot", Wealthy Patriots Wage Class War / Politics / US Politics

By: Janet_Tavakoli

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleA strange thing happened in Chicago on Thursday, December 8. An audience of well-heeled professionals, a mixture of Democrats and Republicans, packed a room at the Drake Hotel to hear Robert Shiller, a Yale professor, give a presentation on the housing market. A few members of the audience were in the top 1%, and the balance of the audience was probably in the top 2%-5%. At the end of the presentation, there was a bi-partisan revolt.

Durban : The Climate Deal That Wasn't / Politics / Climate Change

By: Andrew_McKillop

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleAfter two weeks of confabulation (defined as a memory disorder characterized by verbal statements or actions unrelated to either the past, present, or likely future), the approximate 10 000 delegates and visitors, including the regulation issue but dwindling band of climate crazies with paint on their faces, football style, finally broke up with a supposed "face saving deal". To do this, the estimated 1200 official limousines, 140 private planes, and additional regular airline flights needed to rush the CCC (Climate Concerned Crowd) to their 17th be-in since the 1997 Kyoto meeting of course spewed very impressive quantities of the "deadly gas" called CO2.

The Lunacy of Soviet Communist Central Planning / Politics / Social Issues

By: Gary_North

Diamond Rated - Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleThis 1992 documentary, The Engineers' Plot, is a history of Soviet central economic planning. Central planning did not work. This is a planned society that modeled its premier showcase city after Gary, Indiana. The video is a fine demonstration of the truth of Ludwig von Mises' 1920 essay, "Economic Calculation in the Socialist Commonwealth." Mises argued that the socialist system is irrational, because it cannot price anything rationally. You will especially enjoy the parade of marching working women in white dresses. This is a Busby Berkeley extravananza, Soviet style.
