Why the Tea Party is a Sucker for Charlatans, Ignoramuses, and Statists / Politics / US Politics

By: Gary_North

Still, her followers could not believe it. They sent me outraged letters. Poor Max Keiser publicly challenged me to defend myself. How did I dare say such things about his favorite anti-FED expert?

Is Natural Gas Worse than Coal and Oil in Greenhouse Gas Emissions? / Politics / Natural Gas

By: Dian_L_Chu

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleNatural gas has long been touted as a cleaner alternative because natural gas releases about half as much of the greenhouse gas carbon dioxide as coal does.

Boone Pickens pitching as the fuel of the future, many market players are betting on increasing natural gas demand from transportation fuels and the generation of electricity to continue for years to come.

Geithner Politicizes the Fed, Warns Congress to Not do the Same, Inflation Targeting Parabolic Curve / Politics / Central Banks

By: Mike_Shedlock

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleThe hypocrisy of treasury secretary Tim Geithner would be stunning except for the fact hypocrisy from Geithner is pretty much an every day occurrence.

Geithner is blasting Congress for politicizing the Fed, while doing the same thing himself. To top it off, the Fed itself is politicizing the Fed by interfering and commenting on Fiscal policy while bitching about Congress commenting on monetary policy.

Investors Betting In The Endgame of Capitalism / Politics / Global Debt Crisis

By: Darryl_R_Schoon

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleThere is a difference between betting in the endgame and betting on the endgame. The former is a fool’s avocation whereas the latter is a once in a lifetime opportunity.

U.S. Military War Gaming for Large Scale Economic Breakdown and Civil Unrest / Politics / US Politics

By: Mac_Slavo

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleThe majority of Americans believe that recent government intervention into financial markets, the economy and corporate insolvency has reversed the economic downturn which was described by former Treasury Secretary Hank Paulson as being “on the brink” in 2008. The stimulus, bailouts and unrelenting quantitative easing by the Federal Reserve have thus far been perceived as having averted the further erosion of the U.S. real estate and equities markets. And though the Federal Reserve and economic analysts have recently readjusted their economic growth forecasts downward for the next six months, Americans no longer have to worry about, as Rep. Brad Sherman (D-CA) said on the house floor in October of 2008, the sky falling, multi-thousand point drops in stock markets and martial law in America.

TSA Treats Air Travelers as Criminal Suspects / Politics / US Politics

By: Dr_Ron_Paul
